Cancer Develops from Fungal Infections, like Candida

There are very few common threads among experts on what causes cancer, aside from obvious lifestyle choices like smoking and alcohol. However, to think cancer is largely caused by one thing is a bit too simplistic…or is it? Turns out, it may not be that complicated. A simple fungal infection can cause cancer…Candida.

Beam Me Up Scotty: German Scientists Invent Working Teleporter, Of Sorts

Scientists from the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam have invented a real-life teleporter system that can scan in an object and “beam it” to another location. Not quite the dematerialisation and reconstruction of science fiction, the system relies on destructive scanning and 3D printing.

Nuclear Fusion Reactor in France Could Bring Breakthroughs That Will Provide Limitless, Clean Energy and Secure the Planet’s Future

The most sophisticated, expensive machine ever built is slowly taking shape at the in rural France at the Cadarache nuclear facility. It is a scientific collaboration on a worldwide scale, meant to tackle one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century – with the human population growing every year, how do we continue to make ever more electricity past 2050 (the date that the EU has set for full decarburization of power generation) without destroying the environment? The scientists and engineers in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance think the solution is nuclear fusion – they want to recreate a star in a box on Earth.

Why Can’t the World’s Greatest Minds Solve the Mystery of Consciousness?

One spring morning in Tucson, Arizona, in 1994, an unknown philosopher named David Chalmers got up to give a talk on consciousness, by which he meant the feeling of being inside your head, looking out – or, to use the kind of language that might give a neuroscientist an aneurysm, of having a soul. Though he didn’t realize it at the time, the young Australian academic was about to ignite a war between philosophers and scientists, by drawing attention to a central mystery of human life – perhaps the central mystery of human life – and revealing how embarrassingly far they were from solving it.

Neurological Indicators Show That Your Heart Is Your True Center of Consciousness

The heart communicates information to the brain and throughout the body via electromagnetic field interactions. The heart generates the body’s most powerful and most extensive rhythmic electromagnetic field. The heart’s magnetic component is about 500 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body.

NASA’s ‘Largest Picture Ever’ Taken – A Must See Video With Amazing Imagery

With today’s technology, it is easier than ever to relish in the beauties of not only planet Earth, but the universe. We have always been able to look up at the stars and have even had a telescope for some time that enabled us to focus in on the literal outer-beauty of where we are – and what’s out there is truly amazing. Complimenting this even further, NASA has released what is deemed the largest picture ever taken – and it will blow you away.
The image above takes you through over 100 million stars and travels more than 40,000 light years. It provides a startling glimpse at the sheer scale of our nearest galactic neighbor.

BIG Discovery ~ Speed of Light Not So Constant After All

Light doesn’t always travel at the speed of light. A new experiment reveals that focusing or manipulating the structure of light pulses reduces their speed, even in vacuum conditions. A paper reporting the research, posted online at arXiv.org and accepted for publication, describes hard experimental evidence that the speed of light, one of the most important constants in physics, should be thought of as a limit rather than an invariable rate for light zipping through a vacuum.
