For example, one of my friend has fear of heights, even if there is a strong glass window and no reason for him to fall off. He is even aware and admits his fear is irrational.

Many may say it’s in subconscious mind or neurologically left brain, in that case, can you let me know experiments(better if I can do it myself) , research paper and scientific resources that explains this phenomenon in details.

Is there no way to communicate to this part of brain? Does it not follow rationality? If not, then how placebo effect works?

Does philosophical perspective helps? As some of spiritual/non-spiritual thinker may claim?

    $\begingroup$ "If not, then how placebo effect works?" How is this related to your question? Regardless, I recommend against asking follow-up questions which presume an answer to your original question. Therefore, this is best edited out. $\endgroup$ – Steven Jeuris Dec 3 at 18:50
