Voices In Your Head

Doctor Julian Jaynes wrote about a woman who talked daily to her long-dead grandmother, who she saw sitting in a chair each morning.

As far as the doctor could tell, the woman never suffered any ill effects from this.

In fact, she readily accepted that it was a hallucination, which didn’t bother her at all.

She just found the conversations, and her grandmother’s advice, helpful.

 

Advice From Ghosts

Hallucinations aren’t necessary, but why not have a conversation in your head with somebody helpful?

If you want advice on love, talk to the Dalai Lama. Talk to Andrew Carnegie or Lee Iacocca if you want to make a factory more productive.

Albert Einstein might even give you a creative idea or two.
