In my opinion the power of belief is underestimated. Consider this i was watching T.V one time and they were doing experiments. People were attached to a machine by scientists, the people were then told they were going to be shocked (by this i mean electric shock) before they were shocked they were told they were going to be shocked they were told that it was set on the highest level and it was going to hurt. After the shock people responded in pain saying it hurt (you know what comes next) two weeks later they brought back the same people attached them to a machine and were told that they were going to be shocked again only this time it was set on the lowest level and that it was only going to tingle and they later said that it didn't hurt at all. At the end of these tests they were then told (surprise, surprise) that both shocks were the same. Other examples could be people on medication being perscribed a different drug by their doctor, returning for the drug sometime later and being told by their doctor that they no longer need it because the drug they were given the month before was actually mints. All these are examples that belief are extremely powerful to the human mind and influences us to be behave the way we do. What do you think?
