Curious Minds: Dr. Mario Martinez’s interview with Dr. Deepak Chopra

 

Dr. Mario Martinez is a Clinical Psychologist.  In 1998 he developed the theory of biocognitive science based on research that demonstrates how thoughts and their biological expression co-emerge within a cultural history.  In biocognitive theory, individuals are seen as an inseparable bioinformational field of mind, body, and cultural history in constant search for contextual meaning.  Dr. Martinez argues that current mechanical models of the life sciences study disease by reducing the body to pathological parts. He proposes that the healing process must include the cultural history that contextualizes the mind-body expression of health and illness.  He proposes instead to challenge the cultural beliefs that perpetuate genetic helplessness.  Based on Dr. Martinez’s research with healthy centenarians worldwide, he suggests that they have a different way of perceiving time.
