"Overall, this study provides evidence hinting at the remarkable capability of the human brain to understand and synchronize with others’ when the situation calls for it"

Or that both brains synchronise better with the fundamental universal dimension: consciousness

The dangers of 'equal outcomes', which leads to discussions of imaginary problems. Topics like this do nothing but widen any divide because one can easily find something which has disparity in the complete opposite. For example, I wonder what percentage of movies between 1920-2020 show women as violent... 8% perhaps?

It is very clear, now that large-scale studies are being done on the use of cannabis since the 1st legalisations in 2016, that the prohibition of this herb is solely due to the industries that knew they would suffer with cannabis legalisation.

There was a previous study here which stated that for every $1 spent on cannabis, upto $0.80 is not spent on alcohol. And now this study, which shows that cannabis is being substituted for dozens of costly pharma medications as in "65 percent ceased their use of opioids, 60 percent stopped using antidepressants, and 58 percent ceased their use of anticonvulsants".

The alcohol and pharma industries are not stupid and would have done their own internal studies which would have showed exactly this; that cannabis will threaten their profit margins. And they would have doubled down on the fear-mongering and lobbying politicians to continue to demonise the herb.

But this in no way exonerates the public from blindly and ignorantly accepting the lies and corruption. How long ago did we find out that corporations act based on profits, and politicians act based on re-election? The morality of the society must come from us.

I don't get it. Who is doing this 'sorting'?

"“It actually turns out to be different,” she said. People can still feel lonely, even if they don’t spend much time alone."

i don't get this study. This is just unrealistic expectations causing inner stress. Get rid of the expectations gets rid of the stress. And it's not just relationships, it's anything in life. Make good solid decisions in life, then accept the universe unfolding how it will.

I think that the issue is deeper. If you are facing a vote of 2 candidates both of some evil, you should of course vote for the one of lesser evil, then you should run yourself the next election.

The vet should not euthanise animals, should quit, and start a ground-level campaign to create a shelter which does not euthanise.

How else will society change?
