Cosmology Group Finds Measurable Evidence of Dark Matter Filament

As time passes and more research is done, more evidence is compiled supporting the theory that suggests that dark matter is a real thing, even though no direct evidence for its existence has ever been found. Instead, the evidence comes about as measurements of other phenomenon are taken, generally involving gravitational pull on objects in the universe we can see that cannot be explained by other means.

The Higgs boson ‘God Particle’ discovery explained in the context of conscious cosmology

Without consciousness, the universe cannot be fully explained, as consciousness is increasingly emerging as a fundamental force impacting the very fabric of reality. This is really, really frustrating for many scientists because, for starters, the majority of them don’t even believe in the existence of consciousness. Stephen Hawking is famous for his rather short-sighted remarks that people are mindless, soulless beings — “biological robots” — and that religion / spirituality is a realm for “people who are afraid of the dark.”

Physicists: Best evidence yet found for “God particle”

(Reuters) – Physicists at a U.S. laboratory said on Monday they have come tantalizingly close to proving the existence of the elusive subatomic Higgs boson – often called the “God particle” because it may bring mass and order to the universe. The announcement by the Fermi National Accelerator Lab outside Chicago came two days before […]

New Mind-Reading Device Lets Paralyzed People Type

(Smithsonian.com) Imagine that a debilitating illness, stroke or accident has left you entirely paralyzed. You’re fully conscious but unable to move or even communicate with those around you. People in this condition—known as Locked-in Syndrome—suffer greatly, locked in their own minds, appearing superficially to be in a persistent vegetative state despite a full inner life. […]

Nanoparticles May Explain Moon Dirt’s Odd Behavior

Nanoparticles May Explain Moon Dirt’s Odd Behavior

The famously strange behavior of lunar soil may be caused by nanoparticles embedded in the dirt, a new study reports.

The study found that nanoparticles — specks of matter whose tiny size imparts exotic and often bizarre properties — are common in samples of moon dirt brought back to Earth by Apollo astronauts.

The discovery may explain why moon soil is such a poor conductor of heat, why it hovers above the lunar surface far longer than gravity should allow, and why it’s so sticky and abrasive — characteristics observed, and sometimes deplored, by moonwalking astronauts four decades ago.
