(Aaron Kesel) Thousands of leading scientists have urged their colleagues against helping governments create killer robots, making the movie The Terminator a reality.
(Zoey Sky) According to a study, the variety of microbes in your gut indicates the health condition of your blood vessels.
(Sequoyah Kennedy) Scientists may have found the missing piece to the puzzle of the “Gaia hypothesis.” First proposed by James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis in the 1970’s, the Gaia hypothesis is an attempt to explain how Earth has managed to sustain life in the face of the multitudes of cosmic and terrestrial cataclysms that have befallen our pale blue dot throughout the approximately 3.8 billion years since our very first single celled ancestors started this whole mess.
(Brett Tingley) As vast and empty as it is, the universe is actually full of radio signals. Not necessarily the ones we tend to think of when we hear the word “radio,” but radio waves nonetheless. Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic radiation similar to light or X-rays, but just with a much longer wavelength. Radio waves can be generated from a variety of naturally occurring sourcesout in space, making them one more way for us to understand our mysterious universe.
by Justin Deschamps, In the modern world, the scents we are exposed to have been carefully designed to hijack a deeply ingrained process for storing core memories, along with other vital functions. In the following Ted Talk, a perfumer named Holladay Saltz discusses just how important smell is in human life. The olfactory process—our sense […]
(Anne) Over 75 years ago, one man showed us how to purify water naturally and how to harness its colossal power. If we were to follow Viktor Schauberger’s teachings today, pure and healthy water would be within our reach, as well as the ability to produce almost limitless amounts of energy from plain water and air—for next to nothing. If we replaced the death-technology of the explosion with the bio-technology of the implosion, mankind’s biggest problems could be solved—which is the reason why it has been held back to this day.
(Vicki Batts) Cannabis may still be prohibited by the U.S. federal government, but that doesn’t mean the prized plant isn’t a medicine. While federal prohibition may make scientific research on cannabis harder to complete, many studies have shown that the plant has wide-reaching medicinal benefits. Research continues to show that for dozens of conditions, cannabis could be a natural solution.
(Earl Garcia) Lack of sleep may do more than induce a “spaced out” feeling as recent research published in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry found that sleep deprivation may lead to the persistence of repetitive negative thoughts. Researchers at the State University of New York at Binghamtonexplained that repetitive negative thinking occurs when a person focuses on distressing and unhelpful thoughts and stimuli, which in turn may result in a decreased quality of life and the onset of mental health problems associated with depression and anxiety.
(Anne) The world is amidst great change and it is accelerating at a breathtaking pace. Timeless understandings are re-emerging now in the minds of many. It is truly a remarkable time to be alive!
(S.D. Wells) Autism is on the rise and the statistics are skyrocketing. Back in 1990, less than 30 years ago, studies reveal there were roughly three autism cases per 10,000 children in the United States. Fast forward to this past Spring, 2018, when the CDC released new data revealing that one in every 59 American kids have some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), with a much higher incident in boys than girls. What changed so drastically in less than three decades that autism cases went from three per 10,000 to 170 per 10,000? Currently more than 20 million people worldwide are diagnosed with some form of autism.
(Vicki Batts) Canola oil may be marketed as a vegetable oil, but that doesn’t automatically mean it’s healthy. Few people know canola oil’s dirty secret: There is no such thing as a canola plant. It’s actually made from hybridized rapeseed. Rapeseed oil was once commonly used for industrial applications and in food — until the health problems associated with this oil became overwhelmingly apparent. In the 1970’s, hybridized rapeseed was “rebranded” as canola oil, to make it more appealing to consumers.

(Justin Deschamps) Is the ego bad? Is it something we should be trying to get rid of? Before we answer those questions, perhaps we should be asking, what is the ego in the first place? The following article sheds some interesting insights into these questions as well as the practices that have been developed over the years on how to transcend the ego.
(Paul Seaburn) If you’ve been waiting to find out whatever happened to the mysterious three-fingered Peruvian maybe-alien-maybe-not mummies unveiled last year, your wait is over. Renowned UFO and paranormal researcher Steve Mera has revealed the long-anticipated official and verifiable DNA analysis of “Maria” — the largest three-fingered body with an equally unusual large head. The results are in and Maria is …
(Walter Russell) If you ask any electrical engineer to design a circuit to heat a room, they will invariably do so, by introducing a large resistance into their conductor circuit. This resistance will act like a typical mechanical resistance and the voltage drop across the resistance will manifest as heat.
