SYNTHETIC WORLDS

Konrad Becker

Man's nervous system shows that the difference between a "real and a merely "clearly and vividly imagined" event can be fully erased. This is the basis of mental "success training". The nervous system acts according to what it believes or sees to be "true". Belief and imagination as a "world view" - from the basic "mechanisms of survival" to the brain stem-controlled hit-and-run instinct and and territorial behavior to the abstract symbolism of the neural impulses coded in mental "images".
