Why Does The Sound of Chewing Make Some People Panic?

Dr. Ramachandran is not perfect: no one is. We are extremely fortunate that he has taken an interest in this disorder. He has the notoriety to help us get more attention, and he has experience with and insight into synaesthesia to make a very important theoretical link into what's happening during a trigger.
We need research. Lots of it.
I am grateful to any professional medical person who does not minimize, does not try to tell me that I am wrong, laugh at me, and my favorite: tell me that I "need to listen to nature sounds".

The Bible And Homosexuality

I'm sorry I couldn't get in for the on-air discussion. I am a hetero female and am dismayed that my fellow humans are so easily led by interpretations of fables. Who wrote the bibles? And why did those people rewrite it? And rewrite it again? And what was the original purpose of those bibles? Why are some portions of Leviticus open to interpretation (tattoos, haircuts) and some are not? And what god would "hate the sin not the sinner"? The implications and judgements feel narrow-minded and self-righteous. When Jesus said to love thy neighbor, did he really mean it? Does love mean intolerance?
