What came before the Big Bang?

Cosmologists used to think the universe was totally timeless: no beginning, no end. That might sound mind-melting, but it’s easier on the scientific brain than figuring out what a set starting point would mean, let alone when it would be. So some physicists have cooked up alternative cosmological theories that make time’s role seem a... Continue Reading →

Here’s How the Latest Gravitational Wave Announcement is Going to Revolutionize Physics (Futurism)

IN BRIEF Astrophysicists are excited at the possibility of observing the merger of neutron stars to test what happens to matter in some of the most extreme conditions in the universe. This could be key to understanding the formation of the heavier elements on the Periodic Table. When LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, first... Continue Reading →

The Heart Has Its Own ‘Brain’ and Consciousness

Many believe that conscious awareness originates in the brain alone. Recent scientific research suggests that consciousness actually emerges from the brain and body acting together. A growing body of evidence suggests that the heart plays a particularly significant role in this process. Far more than a simple pump, as was once believed, the heart is... Continue Reading →

First hint of ‘life after death’ in biggest ever scientific study

Death is a depressingly inevitable consequence of life, but now scientists believe they may have found some light at the end of the tunnel. The largest ever medical study into near-death and out-of-body experiences has discovered that some awareness may continue even after the brain has shut down completely. It is a controversial subject which... Continue Reading →

For The First Time Ever, A Woman in China Was Cryogenically Frozen

So I find this technology absolutely amazing. Can you imagine dying and then waking up 100's of years in the future? But my question after reading this article is: Would freezing the body after death trap the original soul/consciousness inside the "frozen body", or would a different soul become present when the body awakens sometime...

The Mystery behind the Emerald Tablets

Even a little bit of research into the mysterious text we call the “Emerald Tablets” will quickly leave you baffled. While the translations reveal ancient secrets once known only by Hermetic Magicians, Alchemists and other Initiates, the origins of this work are not so clear at all. Conflicting information, confusing speculation and heated opinion surround... Continue Reading →

How to Map the Circuits That Define Us

Neuroscientists want to understand how tangles of neurons produce complex behaviors, but even the simplest networks defy understanding Marta Zlatic owns what could be the most tedious film collection ever. In her laboratory at the Janelia Research Campus in Ashburn, Virginia, the neuroscientist has stored more than 20,000 hours of black-and-white video featuring fruit-fly (Drosophila)...

Could Memory Traces Exist in Cell Bodies?

Once a memory is lost, is it gone forever? Most research points to yes. Yet a study published in the online journal eLife now suggests that traces of a lost memory might remain in a cell's nucleus, perhaps enabling future recall or at least the easy formation of a new, related memory. The current theory... Continue Reading →

The Case Against Reality

A professor of cognitive science argues that the world is nothing like the one we experience through our senses.  Not so, says Donald D. Hoffman, a professor of cognitive science at the University of California, Irvine. Hoffman has spent the past three decades studying perception, artificial intelligence, evolutionary game theory and the brain, and his conclusion... Continue Reading →

Ancient Wisdom: The Constellation of Orion

For at least ten thousand years, human beings have been plotting the movement of the stars, studying the heavens, constructing calendars, and erecting monuments to track the procession of the constellations and heavenly bodies across the night sky. Many ancient cultures shared the belief that we came from the stars. Perhaps this is why so... Continue Reading →
