Transcript of The Power of Thought!

The Power of Thought Grace, Dan, Jared, Isaac You may be surprised to find out
that these seemingly random
- Roger Bannister
-Double Blind Test
...actually have something
in common. Roger Bannister: Wait...how are
they connected? Double Blind Test Connection? Placebo:
Believe the pill and
trick your body The Placebo Effect What's their Connection? So what does the double blind test and a
placebo have in common? What's their connection? What do Roger bannister and Pygmalion have in common you may ask? How he overcame what they said was "impossible" - Who was he?
-Why is running a 4min. mile impressive?
-May 6, 1954: One man has ran a 4 minute mile
-Within a year, 30 people beat him
-Over 20,000 have ran 4 min mile Results: Group A Group B The Placebo Given actual pill that effects the body Given a placebo, or fake sugar pill that has no properties to cause any change with the patients Both groups showed members being cured of ailment "I found some cheese." "How did you know?"
"Hey, wait for me." "This way gents." "Yuck, it's moldy!" -This is a test in which neither the patients nor the observer knows who got which pill "Wait, what did I just give you?..." Roger Bannister:
Believed he could run a mile in 4 min. Double Blind:
Believe you took the
helpful pill Pygmalion:
Wished and believed his statue was real Underlying factor here? He's not blind...get it...two blind mice not three..."double" blind test....okay we tried... Placebo: What is it really? Placebos: are simulated or otherwise medically ineffectual treatment for a disease or other medical condition intended to deceive the recipient. "The Magic Pill" Does this process resemble anything? Group 2:
-Again no one knows
(both doctors and patients) who is getting this placebo or actual medication Group 1:
-Actual test pill
-Neither patients nor
the doctors administering
the medication Why? They knew it was possible now. What is there connection? The Power of
Thought! Pygmalion Roger Banister Double- Blind Test Placebo Pygmalion Greek Myth -Was a sculptor who hated marriage
-Fell in love with his inanimate statue.
-Statue became real and married him. WORKS CITED Chang, Louise. "The Placebo Effect: What Is It? ." WebMD - Pygmalion by Joe James Ad [Video] (2008).

-Roger Bannister went against all odds and believed he could run the mile in 4 minutes. Maybe it's because... Coincidence...I think not! What do Rodger Bannister and the placebo have in common? Could it be... One a "fake" drug, used the power of persuasion to make people believe in the impossible; the other a man who did the same Mind Matter Now for the big reveal... They controlled the power of thought.
