As the cheesy pickup line suggests, your eyes may really be the window to your soul. According to a new study by Yale University psychologists, most people intuitively feel as if their "self" otherwise known as their soul, or ego exists in or near their eyes.

  • ~So what's all this then ?!

Posted 22 March 2012 - 06:21 PM

Well in this article,I would think the eyes are so near the brain,its why they reflect conciousness ?
But once again,modern medicine figures out something the Chinese knew 4000 years ago !

In Chinese medicine,our soul is called the shen.
It's not exactly the same definition as soul,but more like our personality and what type of person we are,is determined by our shen.
The shen likes to reside in the heart,but its state is reflected in our eyes.
So to look into the eyes,is to see into our heart and soul.
Medical inferences are made by looking into the eyes as well.
Disturbed shen makes the eyes look askew,or dull.
This is easily noted in people with psychological disorders.Their eyes never look right.
If someone's eyes seem off to you,keep walking .

  • Our universe was created out of a desire. A desire to experiment, interact and evolve within a multitude of planes of consciousness.

I've always beleived that to be at least partially true.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who beleives in it.

I think our conscious resides behind our eyes and between our ears, because our brain is there.

And I would think that the brain and consciosuness are two diffrent things working together.

How close do you have to be to look at someones eyes ? I suggest facial expression,ie:- scowl,smile,eye brows up/down,mouth etc rather than eyes which maybe behind spectacles,or sun glasses,but body language also tells how a person reacts to different situations.

(1) try your best, ............if that dont work.
(2) try your second best, ........if that dont work
(3) give up you aint gonna win

True bud. Ive been on the frontline, so to speak, of judging people 'instantly' at times, I can always see the eyes and what they 'want' to do, buts its the body language that lets me know...what they 'will' do..

Anyone interested in this article should read a book called "Human Behaviour" by Desmond Morris,very interesting on how Humans react to various situations...the chapter on eyes is very good,eg:- if you meet a person  and they like you their eyes will dilate slightly,they cannot help it,and the reverse happens if they take a dislike,it works try it out,but not on your Mrs when youve had a pint.....yeehaaa

(1) try your best, ............if that dont work.
