Dr. Gary Greenberg has created images of ordinary grains of sand with microscopes that he developed. He gets my award for grooviest scientist of the week…[more]
Artist Li Hongbo makes many sheets of paper look like traditional porcelain or plaster sculpture that extends like an accordion or a giant slinky. He says says his works are apolitical and not religious…[more]
In the village of Oymyakon, Russia, the average winter temperature is minus 58° Fahrenheit. That’s minus 50° Celsius. Does that make you feel a little warmer? Coldest temperature on record, from 1924, is minus 96° F (minus 71° C). Eyeglasses freeze to faces. Cars outside need to be kept running…[more]
How the Australian Bradbury won the medal in the short track 1,000m is nothing short of miraculous.
In 1994 at the World Cup, he lost 4 liters of blood when another skater sliced Bradbury’s thigh with a skate blade. At the 1998 Olympics he was a medal contender but collisions with other racers blocked his chances. In September of 2000 he broke his neck in a training accident. He needed to have 4 pins inserted in his skull and screws and plates bolted into his back and chest. Doctors said he’d never skate again…[more]
Rupert Sheldrake, is best known for advocating his theory of “morphic resonance”.
Morphic resonance is a type of telepathic connection from the past to the present, where an individual tunes into a type of collective memory. Here are a few examples and proofs:
- In an experiment a group of English children, were taught a popular Japanese rhyme and a less popular one.
- They were able to learn the popular rhyme much faster, even though they were never exposed to Japanese language and culture before.
- Psychologist Arden Mahlberg invented a new form of Morse code, which he taught to a group of subjects. He also taught them the official Morse code.
- The group memorized the official Morse code much more quickly than the newly invented code, even though they weren’t exposed to the official Morse code before
I could go on and on with the proofs and the experiments behind it but, check it out for yourself here: X
Morphic resonance implies a lot of new revolutionary material, ranging from the fact that memory doesn’t have to be stored into the brain.
Rather the brain is more of a receptor tuning into this collective memory.
