Want could possibly an Indian mystic and brain scientists with all latest gadgetry can have in common?
Thousands of year back into the ancient world, people would leave the havoc of their own village, finding solace in the forest so they could reflect on their own inner experiences. What they would look within themselves is myriads of thoughts and emotions. Of course, those thoughts and emotions seemed to cause anxiety, but they did find methods how they could change their state of mind.
Fast forward into the early 2000’s, scientists would look at the human brain and bring some conclusions about the brain plasticity. They would conclude that through meditative exercises, the brain can be rewired and literally changed.
