Some personality traits appear to be linked with the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, a new study suggests.
The tendency to avoid taking risks appears to be a stable personality trait across a patient’s lifetime — as far back as 30 years before symptoms began, those with Parkinson’s disease said they did not often engage in risky or exhilarating activities, such as riding roller coasters or speeding, the study found.
The findings add to a growing body of research suggesting Parkinson’s is more likely to afflict people with rigid, cautious personalities.
It’s possible that what we consider to be aspects of someone’s personality may in fact be very early manifestations of Parkinson’s, said study researcher Kelly Sullivan, of the University of South Florida’s department of neurology. However, much more research is needed to confirm this hypothesis, Sullivan said.(May 1,2012-LiveScience)
One notable exception to the rule is Hitler. He never was cautious or stable.He had opinions, prejudices and his steps into the centre stage of German politics was a gambler’s approach. His bluff was not seriously challenged and never for once he stopped upping the stakes ever higher. History is clear that he was suffering from the disease.
There are those who have Parkinson’s personality and there are those who have not(for example-Hitler); and yet circumstances add up, genetic partly and extraneous conditions also play their part.
Allow me to indulge in my humor: If all the cautious, stable people suffered from Parkinson’s the entire world would have to be shut up. Day to day matters that keep the world run will stop. Do you think it can be left with unstable personalities the kind of fellows who were running Investment banking? The world would go in the way of Baring Bank( now defunct) if Goldman Sachs could get hold of it. Not as yet.

The primary fault in Parkinson’s Disease is the insufficient formation of dopamine. When dopamine fails to form properly the highly damaging superoxide anion is formed instead. This can cause further deterioration in Parkinson’s Disease. Although cell damage is widely claimed to cause Parkinson’s Disease when there is a certain lack of the Parkin gene and it can hasten or aggravate the rate of cell damage.

ADOLF HITLER AND PARKINSON’S DISEASE
The Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler, was known to have Parkinson’s Disease from 1933 until his suicide in 1945 At the end of the Second World War he was largely confined to his bunker in Berlin. In his final days in the bunker, he shuffled around his room, mumbling to himself. His shaking was related to emotional upsets. Physically, he had quickly deteriorated and developed the appearance of an old man. The Nazi hierarchy had throughout tried to conceal his Parkinson’s Disease by all means.(ack: http://viartis.net/parkinsons.disease/news)

According to Dictionary.com it is defined as the element, part, substance, or process that reasons, thinks, feels, wills, perceives, judges which may be a catch-all to signify the totality of conscious and unconscious mental processes and activities in a human or any conscious being. Mind is conscious of self and it is set on an active mode when juxtaposed to another.
Animals become restive while another intrudes into their personal space. The distance which an animal marks safe also hitches its mind to a perception. Any violation would bring adequate response from it. Such perception works for both man and animal. A speeding vehicle coming towards us as though out of control immediately sets us to look to safety. We feel our physiology involuntarily taking control of us. The adrenalin rush in a manner of speaking ties us to space about us.
It also guides our preferences in the sports. Seeking thrill is one way of pumping dopamine into our brain, which hungers for it.

In our material presence we are an entity in the space as moon or a meteor. If a rogue meteor hits us it would not matter how far our personal space ought to be. Similarly such a question of personal space is out of place considering our thoughts, imagination have unlimited range. In order to give this infinite range from which we construct our thoughts we might give it a name Cosmic Mind.
Why we would need a Cosmic Mind? Experience of our race regardless of the age in which it occurred is bent and made part of our experience. It may be like a kangaroo word concealed in the direct experience or better still in our perception of it. Fight of flee? question of the Savannah is redundant in the adrenalin rush we feel while in our workplace we expect the axe to fall on us. Only that we have no place to run to as our ape-ancestor but get down to write a résumé and look for another job.
Time and Space coordinates of our physical presence in Cosmos is given 360 degrees so to speak so that experience of our past is a kind of net as well as foresight a guideline to go forward. The Cosmic Mind must cover the whole run.
