In one exercise, participants in the mindfulness group were instructed to focus attention on their breathing without judgment, while those in the mind-wandering group were told to think about whatever came to mind.
After the guided exercise in the first experiment, 153 participants studied a list of 15 words related to the concept of ‘trash’ such as garbage, waste, can, refuse, sewage and rubbish.
But the list did not actually include the word ‘trash’.
The results revealed that 39 per cent of the mindfulness participants then falsely recalled seeing the word ‘trash’ on the list, compared to only 20 per cent of the mind-wandering participants.
If you are referring to what I posted, then I agree and suspect you didn't read to the end of my comment. I think it's just easy to misread the name Berenstain as Berenstein. Nothing more.

imaginative, and creative minds were on the show "fringe"....it was "must see TV" for me when it was on.....but, stories about time dilation and travel, universes colliding and joining, have been around for a while.....the "a" for an "e"....could have been simply bad writing, coupled with a lazy editor.....it happens so much in our own local newspaper (the Stockton record) that I have grown quite immune to it. I guess what I'm saying is that a little more proof of purposeful intent is needed.
The modern Arctic turns out to be the third incarnation of an ancient landmass at the top of the world. A group of Siberian scientists has discovered that the northern most continent broke apart twice, and not once as was previously thought. An ancient continent named Arctida formed around one billion years ago, but then split apart around 750 million years ago, only to come back together again after another 500 million years, TASS reports, citing the findings of the Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Novosibirsk State University.
