What is placebo?

4 posts in this topic

...and I don't mean the definition from the paradigm of materialistic science.

In a double-blind place trial, one group of participants are given the actual drug tested, while the others are given a pill with nothing in it (placebo). Every drug that goes through clinical trial has its efficiency tested against the placebo, but not all succeed. The placebo group can even experience some effects and this is what im interested in!

Is it yet another example of "Mind over body/matter" and "Law of attraction"?

Literally generating something new out of nothingness... where is this effect coming from really?

We have never thoroughly studied placebo directly, although its use for benefiting people appears to be very wide (so many different drugs and that is just one domain).

Could placebo be the not yet fully actualized potential of humans? ... where in future instead of doing and taking stuff to be or have things a certain way, we will just will that into existence? :D

Yeah, people are able to heal themselves through imagination, which is what placebo is. Pretty wild.

Reminds me of that SpongeBob episode...
