    I would like to ask about treatment of confabulation. Whether it can be treated by Neurosurgeon, Psychiatrist or Clinical Psychologist or all.

    I think in case of False Memory some memory elements/ neurotransmitters/ ions are lost

    Thank you so much

  • Thank you for explaining the concept of confabulation so easily. Earlier I had something else in mind with respect to the concept and definition of confabulation.

    Now I understand :- Few times we call other mind that you are lying but the fact is they are not lying but what they are saying is because of false memory.

    Nice concept - "What has actually...

  • Thank you for such a wonderful discussion and sharing link on the article "Why we’re all addicted to texts, Twitter and Google". Now I came to know that why on social media after posting/ sharing we want to continuously check who commented, liked or shared.

  • In today's world most of us explore materialistic things, some explore natural beauty and few explore inner/mental peace.

    One thing is common in all category of people is all are exploring/SEEKING something for pleasure/ happiness.


  • Root cause of all worries is mind how to control mind and neurotransmitters? and how to reduce needs?.

    Do we have methods through which toxics in mind will be reduced and less needs will be generated.

    Less needs----> less desires---> less expectation----> Happiness Always :)


  • Very interesting video.

    Bhagwat Gita (Hindu Scripture in Sanskrit Language ) also talks about Need -->Desire---> .

    What I understood
    Subjectivity ------> Consciousness/ Unconsciousness -------> Intentionality
    Being/empathy---> motions/ feeling------------------------------> About something

    Thank you so much for the informative and learning sessions.


  • Nitin Merh made a comment

    Sometimes we feel sad even though there are no external events that are affecting us (Mind/ Emotions). Please explain why this happens?


  • Nitin Merh made a comment

    External event I understand but BP shoots without any external event . Even if the individual is very happy then also his/her Mind/ Brain/ Body reacts (Internal event) in such a way that BP shoots.

    Kindly suggest.


  • Thank you so much for explain the concept of consciousness with brain/body activities.

  • Only completed with Fortified time series containing both trend (decreasing) and seasonality.


  • Nitin Merh made a comment

    The concept of preprocessing data is very important before applying any forecasting technique. Concept of De-Trending and De- Seasonality helps in preparing the data sets. This can be done by applying differencing on the time series.

    Thank you

    The concept of over-smoothing and under-smoothing [window width] is explained very effectively.

    This is a very important concept with respect to data visualization as well as forecasting.


  • Nicely explained the concept of choosing window and moving averages.
