Yes, pills clearly labelled “placebo” are shown to still WORK! In this experiment twice as many people taking placebos experienced relief (irritable bowel syndrome) as those taking no placebo in a control group, results comparable to the STRONGEST DRUGS!

They are not sure why, it may be the ritual of taking the pill. The results throw suspicion on those drugs that are not placebos as well, to what degree are they beneficial for reasons of placebo and otherwise inert or harmful?

Now the reason to speak on this in the context of this site, a magic meet business theme – is that the proof of placebo effect is relevant. Because if you don’t believe in magic, if you discount quantum mechanics as irrelevant compared to Newtonian physics – what I’m left with is a psychological explanation for why results manifest – and now, with real scientific proof of placebo power – that psychological explanation has teeth.

Of course it is still an article of faith that placebo can manifest coincidence in the world and not just in yourself – but if you can believe in a model of interconnectedness of people, animals and place – it’s not an awfully big stretch.

Meanwhile I’m looking to procure some sugar pills to make me smarter, stronger, faster and a more efficient hunter… lol!

  1. Aw, this was a really quality article.

  2. I wonder if we all are so critical in everyday life, or just so on this blog?

    I was just searching for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.

    • What search terms were you using? Intentional SEO for this site is difficult because it is about applying Chaos magic (a very under-searched term, that non the less has many sites that are over 10 years old and well respected that I SHOULD not rank higher than) to e-commerce (an over searched term that has very intense competition from every affiliate marketer since the dawn of the internet). But if you search for “chaos magic applied to e-commerce”, there is only one site that can legitimately come up. I hope it is this one.

  8. I am a real estate agent from Italy. I have been hoping to buying property in Memphis. My agent purchased a apartment building there a year ago and has made a profit there.

  9. Good an very informative post. I will come back to your blog regullary. One thing: I do not exactly know what do you mean in the second paragraph. Could you please exmplain your opinion?

  10. Jess Pursel says:

    Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

  11. I’m not positive the place you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time finding out much more or understanding more. Thank you for excellent information I used to be on the lookout for this information for my mission.

  12. Hi there to every , for the reason that I am genuinely keen of reading this weblog’s post to be updated on a regular basis. It carries pleasant material.
