Infection is rampant! Now this infection is part good and necessary, like the good bacteria that reside in any human’s gut. Yet like Ebola, it can be quite virulent and is frequently fatal. This bug is one that infects the mind.

[But be forewarned, “MoreInfection is rampant! Now this infection is part good and necessary, like the good bacteria that reside in any human’s gut. Yet like Ebola, it can be quite virulent and is frequently fatal. This bug is one that infects the mind. [But be forewarned, “mind” is not used here as it is commonly used in the vernacular or down some of the halls of academia. For in this text the reader will find the insistence that the organism functions as a whole (not as a brain and a body), and is never separate from its setting nor independent of its history.] And what are these bugs that infect the mind that are sometimes angels and sometimes demons?

They are wave patterns in social learning and in the propagation of socially learned ways of responding for which this book will borrow the term “memes.” Is there anything one can do when such infection is problematic? Mindfulness, it will be argued, is both the safest “immunization” and the surest “cure.” Note the model for mindfulness presented evolved from Behaviorism and is not mystical.

So if you had dismissed mf as too “new age,” or are merely interested in a new way of seeing it, you may find this book helpful.
