Catastrophism, Plasma Cosmology and Genetic Expression

Interesting title, no? I bet your asking yourself what the hell all of those things have in common that would necessitate my listing them in the article title.  Some of you might not even know what a few of those things are. I recently wrote an article commenting on molecular changes produced by meditation, in…

Study: Meditation Sparks Molecular Changes In The Body

Infowars reports: The University of Wisconsin-Madison has provided the first evidence of specific molecular changes in the body following a period of mindfulness meditation. Researchers from Spain, France, and Wisconsin have reported that the effects of a single day of intensive mindfulness meditation can change our genes. The study, published in Psychoneuroendocrinology, showed that after…

Blacklight Power Sues Wiki Trolls

Sweet. Let’s see the trolls make their case for fraud in court. I doubt the excuse “but it’s impossible because the standard model!” will fly. BLP has never been sued for fraud and they have multiple third party tests from numerous university labs that support their claims. From Blacklight Power’s website: Blacklight vigorously disputes the allegations…

The Natural Intelligence Paradigm – Simon G. Powell

It’s not too often that I run across a philosophy lecture that really causes me to take a step back and look at the universe with a fresh perspective.

This is one such lecture.

I can’t recommend it enough.  Highly entertaining and very enlightening, totally worth watching.

The Recurring Odd Shape Of Comets

A recent photograph of comet Chury taken from the Rosetta probe: Comet Borrelly: Comet Hartley 2: Anyone see a recurring theme here yet? Spherical lobes on the ends with an excavated center. It should be noted that NASA thinks Chury was formed by two comets colliding with each other. Think of a bullet hitting a…

My Nostradamus Predictions of Life 5 Years From Today

As has been reported in previous threads, Blacklight Power will soon be bringing a “free energy” device to market. I think their initial device is projected to produce 100 kilowatts of power, being scalable up to 10 megawatts of power. A 10 megawatt plant today would be something on the order of a small nuclear…

NASA Confirms New EM Thruster Violates Laws Of Conservation

Wired reports: Nasa is a major player in space science, so when a team from the agency this week presents evidence that “impossible” microwave thrusters seem to work, something strange is definitely going on. Either the results are completely wrong, or Nasa has confirmed a major breakthrough in space propulsion. British scientist Roger Shawyer has been…

F. A. Hayek’s The Sensory Order

The Color Purple by Mel Acheson Rediscovering F. A. Hayek’s The Sensory Order has been exciting. Hayek began his inquiry into the foundations of theoretical psychology in 1919 before specializing in economics (and winning a Nobel Prize in that latter field in 1974). He didn’t publish The Sensory Order until 1952, when he found “with considerable surprise”…

What Exactly Is Spacetime?

Have you ever heard the term “spacetime” thrown around in various science articles around the web?  Just what exactly is “spacetime” and how does it relate to standard theories about space? I think Wiki manages a rather good description of this odd substance, so let’s start there.  Wiki defines spacetime as: spacetime is any mathematical…
