This Article Won’t Change Your Mind

“I remember looking at her and thinking, ‘She’s totally lying.’ At the same time, I remember something in my mind saying, ‘And that doesn’t matter.’” For Daniel Shaw, believing the words of the guru he had spent years devoted to wasn’t blind faith exactly. It was something he chose. “I remember actually consciously making that choice.”

There are facts, and there are beliefs, and there are things you want so badly to believe that they become as facts to you.

I'd like to raise the issue of placebos in the drug industry. The placebo effect is well known, but sometimes even when people know they're taking a placebo, they still say they feel better.
