And guess what? Science and scientists can accept that.


In this case, it's more of a study of how your beliefs affect how you react to pain; essentially, studying how a "positive outlook can encourage well-being". It's still not the same as a preacher laying hands on your forehead and your cancer disappearing.

Mit Beton gießt du es aus, das Fundament vom Knochenhaus.
Scharr, scharr, verscharr das Gebein, da ist noch Platz, da paßt noch wer rein.
Hier tobte sich der Teufel aus, unten im Keller im Knochenhaus.
