‘Re-writing ‘Colonel Bogey’ – can chronic pain be forgotten’
and second up:
For any of you who like the ‘tricking pain’ idea – you’ll probabaly enjoy this book:
‘Sleights of Mind: What the neuroscience of magic reveals about our brains’ by Stephen Mackik and Susan Martinez-Conde with Sandra Blakslee. Profile Books 2011.
Hope you enjoy
Manual Magic and Sleights are both threads on Soma Simple that deal with all of this. I like what the magician Teller says, “Neuroscience is now digging around in the topsoil at the base of the mountain magicians have built over the course of several centuries.”
