The tree looks like any other fruit tree for most of the year until spring, when it pops into pink, white and crimson blooms. In summer, the tree bursts with ripened fruit, including peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries and almonds.
Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics — so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as “spooky action at a distance.”
If quantum theories interest you at all, this is an article you must read.
The miniature brain, which is not conscious, resembles that of a five-week-old fetus’ – about the size of a pencil eraser. The organ was made from adult human skin cells and is the most complete human brain model ever developed.
In this video, Ralph Smart of Infinite Waters Diving Deep shares 10 amazing scientific ideas that he thinks will change the world.
Transmission of trauma to a child via what is called “epigenetic inheritance” – the idea that environmental influences such as smoking, diet and stress can affect the genes of your children and possibly even grandchildren. Very interesting read…
Wormholes can be described as a portal in space-time, where an object, or perhaps a person, could be transported from one region of space to another, nearly instantaneously. And while the theory has stood the test of time, no one has ever been able to prove that they actually exist. Check out what these three physicists pulled off…
Studies clearly show that memories are colored and distorted by our beliefs. WOW! Does this also mean you can re-create your past for the better? READ on to get some insight from Dr Matt James….
Scientists have found numerous ways to boost creativity so if you really want to get those ideas flowing, here’s a little inspiration.
Professor Geraint Lewis said the futuristic concept of warp speed space travel was actually part of Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. Cool, heh?
Since none of the 300 official mental disorders has any defining physical test for diagnosis, there is no proof they exist. Period. You could interview thousands of people who say they feel depressed, and you would find significant differences. The more you listened to their stories, the more you would be convinced of the differences. You would be splitting apart the central idea of “depression” and realizing it has no common center. This is hard for many people to believe. That’s how brainwashed they are. There are no common universal states of consciousness. It’s all unique, from person to person. Just as there is no single enlightened state of consciousness which is the same for everyone, there are no “mental disorder” states that are the same for everyone.
Since that meeting seven years ago, research on this topic has moved on dramatically. It has led some to speculate that in young blood might lie an antidote to the ravages of old age. But the apparent rejuvenating properties of young blood must be treated with healthy scepticism. The hopes they raise rest solely on mouse studies. No beneficial effects have ever been proven in humans. Then again, no one has ever looked.
Experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event, and reacts to an event that has yet to occur. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured regarding the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system
For a whole lot of people, especially those in developing countries, science — and with it, medicine — isn’t readily available to the majority of citizens. But Manu Prakash wants to change that. Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford, is the proprietor of “frugal science,” a term he coined to explain the movement toward building cheap versions of high tech tools. His endeavour aims to make medical devices both affordable and available to the masses…So in 2014 he created a paper microscope, aptly named the Foldscope, that costs only 50 cents to produce.
