Mind over matter is a phrase popularized during the 1960s and 1970s that was originally used in reference to paranormal phenomena, especially psychokinesis. However, it has also been used in reference to mind-centric spiritual and philosophic doctrines such as responsibility assumption.
But my blog isn’t about either of the descriptions above.
I like this one better:
It may be said that, so far from having a materialistic tendency, the supposed introduction into the earth at successive geological periods of life — sensation, instinct, the intelligence of the higher mammalia bordering on reason, and lastly, the improvable reason of Man himself — presents us with a picture of the ever-increasing dominion of mind over matter.— Sir Charles Lyell, 1863

Welcome to my chattering mind where I write anything more than 140 characters. I have wide range of interests from politics, economic, law talk, social issue to football. But don’t expect expert analysis on those issues, I’m more jack of all trades master of none type.
My thoughts that I choose to write here – provocative or meditative ones, might be crap or insight. It’s up to you to decide.
Ps. you can find a bit of my background here.
