Placebo Effect (17)

Can anyone think of some ways of inducing the Placebo effect for practical uses in life? I've heard that in addition to aiding people with disease, it's also done opposite harmful effects.

One example of a practical use I thought of is a replacement for recreational drugs: depending upon how the effect is induced, they can be much healthier and gentler than an actual drug.

Not sure but this website seems to have found ways to induce the Plebbit Effect.

Clearly the placebo effect indicates that the mind has the ability to cure itself of any disease, yet all you can think to do is get high with it?! What about AIDS?!?!?! We could brainwash Africans into curing their own AIDS and maybe also into having an IQ on par with humans. We could solve racism in one swoop, but you'd rather just get high.... Shameful.

Getting high was simply the example that came to mind when I thought of sugar pills.

We could solve racism in one foul swoop.

But would such a sweep be to foul?! What do you think?

Could we use the placebo effect to replace religion? ie. If we replace the worship of Jihad with a placebo then we have solved terrorism.

Here's an even better idea! We could use placebo planes and then people could get to where they are going without burning the fuel of a real plane.

if your idea was so much even better, why did you sage it?

My browser remembers form data and I forgot to delete the sage in the link field.

Is Firefox a botnet?

I think it is a cookie that keeps the sage field populated after you post with it.

Don't worry, if you delude yourself enough you'll have a placebo webbrowser that isn't a botnet!
