Mind
The MIND is a set of cognitive faculties including consciousness , perception , thinking , judgement , and memory . It is usually defined as the faculty of an entity's thoughts and consciousness . It holds the power of imagination, recognition, and appreciation, and is responsible for processing feelings and emotions, resulting in attitudes and actions. There is a lengthy tradition in philosophy , religion , psychology , and cognitive science about what constitutes a mind and what is its distinguishing properties. One open question regarding the nature of the mind is the mind–body problem , which investigates the relation of the mind to the physical brain and nervous system. Pre-scientific viewpoints included dualism and idealism , which considered the mind somehow non-physical. Modern views center around physicalism and functionalism , which hold that the mind is roughly identical with the brain or reducible to physical phenomena such as neuronal activity

Pierre Janet
(1859-1947), who argued that underneath the layers of critical-thought functions of the conscious mind lay a powerful awareness that he called the subconscious mind.

can mean 'sacred story', 'traditional narrative' or 'tale of the gods'. A myth can also be a story to explain why something exists. Human cultures' mythologies usually include a cosmogonical or creation myth , concerning the origins of the world, or how the world came to exist. The active beings in myths are generally gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, or animals and plants. Most myths are set in a timeless past before recorded time or beginning of the critical history. A myth can be a story involving symbols that are capable of multiple meanings

Abyss (religion)
In religion, an ABYSS is a BOTTOMLESS PIT, or also a chasm that may lead to the underworld or hell . In the Septuagint , or Greek version of the Hebrew Bible , the word represents both the original unfinished creation (Genesis 1:2) and the Hebrew tehom ("a surging water-deep"), which is used also in apocalyptic and kabbalistic literature and in the New Testament for hell; the place of punishment; in the Revised version of the Bible "abyss" is generally used for this idea. Primarily in the Septuagint cosmography the word is applied both to the waters under the earth which originally covered it, and from which the springs and rivers are supplied and to the waters of the firmament which were regarded as closely connected with those below. In the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus there is an abyss between the righteous dead and the wicked dead in Sheol . In the Book of Revelation , Abaddon is called "the angel of the abyss"

Resonator
A RESONATOR is a device or system that exhibits resonance or resonant behavior, that is, it naturally oscillates at some frequencies , called its resonant frequencies , with greater amplitude than at others. The oscillations in a resonator can be either electromagnetic or mechanical (including acoustic ). Resonators are used to either generate waves of specific frequencies or to select specific frequencies from a signal. Musical instruments use acoustic resonators that produce sound waves of specific tones. Another example is quartz crystals used in electronic devices such as radio transmitters and quartz watches to produce oscillations of very precise frequency. A CAVITY RESONATOR is one in which waves exist in a hollow space inside the device. In electronics and radio, microwave cavities consisting of hollow metal boxes are used in microwave transmitters, receivers and test equipment to control frequency, in place of the tuned circuits which are used at lower frequencies

Memory
MEMORY is the faculty of the mind by which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. Memory
Memory
is vital to experiences and related to limbic systems , it is the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action. If we could not remember past events, we could not learn or develop language, relationships, nor personal identity (Eysenck, 2012). Often memory is understood as an informational processing system with explicit and implicit functioning that is made up of a sensory processor, short-term (or working ) memory, and long-term memory (Baddely, 2007). This can be related to the neuron . The sensory processor allows information from the outside world to be sensed in the form of chemical and physical stimuli and attended to with various levels of focus and intent. Working memory serves as an encoding and retrieval processor

Archetype
The concept of an ARCHETYPE /ˈɑːrkɪtaɪp/ appears in areas relating to behavior , modern psychological theory , and literary analysis . An archetype can be: * a statement, pattern of behavior, or prototype (model) which other statements, patterns of behavior, and objects copy or emulate. (Frequently used informal synonyms for this usage include "standard example", "basic example", and the longer form "archetypal example". Mathematical archetypes often appear as "canonical examples".) * a Platonic philosophical idea referring to pure forms which embody the fundamental characteristics of a thing in Platonism * a collectively-inherited unconscious idea, pattern of thought, image, etc., that is universally present, in individual psyches, as in Jungian psychology * a constantly recurring symbol or motif in literature, painting, or mythology (this usage of the term draws from both comparative anthropology and from Jungian archetypal theory )

Wormhole
A WORMHOLE is a solution of the Einstein field equations having a non-trivial structure linking separate points in spacetime , much like a tunnel with two ends, each at separate points in spacetime. Such connections are consistent with the general theory of relativity , yet their existence remains hypothetical. A wormhole may connect extremely long distances such as a billion light years or more; short distances such as a few meters ; different universes ; and/or different points in time. This is proposed in Albert Einstein\'s special theory of relativity , where the combination of space and time into a single spacetime continuum could theoretically allow one to traverse both space and time using a wormhole with the correct conditions
