Is this the most modern, scientific, and accurate diagram of Chakras ever?

[Source: Reddit/Discover]

Chakras: some people think they’re New Age hooey. Some people thing they’re pre-science wisdom that probably has some truth to it. And some think they line up with the endocrine system.

Now, this, via Discover Magazine (you know, science!):

 

“…Chests puffing up with pride — and happiness felt head to toe — are sensations as real as they are universal. And now we can make an atlas of them.

Researchers have long known that emotions are connected to a range of physiological changes, from nervous job candidates’ sweaty palms to the racing pulse that results from hearing a strange noise at night. But new research reveals that emotional states are universally associated with certain bodily sensations, regardless of individuals’ culture or language.

Once More With Feeling

More than 700 participants in Finland, Sweden and Taiwan participated in experiments aimed at mapping their bodily sensations in connection with specific emotions. Participants viewed emotion-laden words, videos, facial expressions and stories…”

is this thermal imaging scan? blood flow? this kind of chart should very clearly blurb the details of the experiment, how many people, how these "moods" were induced, was there a control group? maybe this is in the original report; i shall click on it.

It's actually from npr. And it was rendered from drawings of people's feelings. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/12/30/258313

Thank God these pictures are just the opposite of those late '60's- '70s-era mood-ring colors … yup, I'd been in my teens then when I'd first seen them …

Blue used to mean "calm".

Maybe depression is a "deep" calm …

Maybe I'm being a bit irreverent here, but did anyone else see spiderman in the "shame" body and superman in the "sadness" body? Sorry my brain went right there and I'm not even much of a superhero fan but maybe I'll look at them in a whole new light.

    anonymous Jan 5, 2014 10:13am

    Haha! I spotted Spidey right away. Didn't see Superman until you pointed it out. I'm sure there are a few others, like Flash Gordon in "pride. "

      anonymous Apr 11, 2014 10:57am

      You are not alone. That is clearly Spiderman, with no hesitation or ambiguity.

        anonymous Feb 5, 2015 11:18am

        I'm sure spidy feels shame over his uncle's death.

anonymous Jan 4, 2014 9:55am

I think I'd rather be neutral…At peace with my life and able to live in the present moment without judgement. 🙂
