  1. describe the question of the mind-body relationship (according to rama)
    there is a difference between them, we have to see where and why there is a relationship between the two (a loop), how can the mind influence the body and how can the body influence the mind
  2. Describe pseudocyesis
    a thought (which we think of as a mental thing) can have the impact on how the body works
  3. describe two other examples of influences of the mind on the body that are considered anomalies
    learned allergies, hypnosis, taste aversion
  4. describe the lack of a mechanism to explain how the mind can influence the body
    we don't know, we need something else
  5. describe what a "paradigm shift" or "scientific revolution" is
