Breakthrough: Scientists Successfully ‘Hack’ Brain To Obtain Private Data

CLN Editor’s Note: While this technology has great potential for constructive application, it is also ripe for abuse of the most extreme nature. We report this breakthrough not as an implicit positive or negative (we believe that most technology is inherently neutral), but because it is newsworthy, and for good or ill merits our close […]

Study: Circumcision Removes Most Sensitive Parts Of Male Anatomy, Offers Few Preventative Health Benefits

By Ker Than (Live Science) How much does circumcision alter what a man ultimately feels? Scientific studies aiming to answer this question have been inconclusive. Now researchers prodding dozens of male penises with a fine-tipped tool have found that the five areas most receptive to fine-touch are routinely removed by the surgery. The finding, announced today, […]

The Universe Is Smooth, Not A Fractal At Large Scales, Say Astronomers

The Universe Is Smooth, Not A Fractal At Large Scales, Say Astronomers

A new paper confirms a conventional picture of the universe, one that is smooth and homogeneous at very large scales, losing its fractal structure when we zoom out far enough. The finding means that astronomers are justified in measuring average quantities over large spatial volumes — there’s no hidden lumpiness messing up the math. This is good news, since a fractal structure at large scales would mean that “Einstein’s equations are being wrongly applied, and our understanding of things like dark energy could be deeply flawed,” says the paper’s lead author, Morag Scrimgeour

Stunning Map Reveals World’s Earthquakes Since 1898

If you’ve ever wondered where — and why — earthquakes happen the most, look no further than a new map, which plots more than a century’s worth of nearly every recorded earthquake strong enough to at least rattle the bookshelves. The map shows earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater since 1898; each is marked in a lightning-bug hue that glows brighter with increasing magnitude. The overall effect is both beautiful and arresting, revealing the silhouettes of Earth’s tectonic boundaries in stark, luminous swarms of color.

First Images from Curiosity Rover on Mars

(Wired) These are the first images taken by NASA’s rover Curiosity after landing in Gale Crater on Mars, shot with the rover’s Hazcam cameras. The image on the left shows one of the rover’s wheels. When it first showed up on the screen in JPL’s mission control, someone could be heard shouting “It’s the wheel, it’s the wheel!” The image on the right shows rocks, dust, and the rover’s shadow on the surface of Mars.

Physics, Consciousness and Health In Relation With the Auric Energy Field

Physics, Consciousness and Health In Relation With the Auric Energy Field

Every living thing on the earth radiates a field of energy, which is called an aura. In humans, there are
seven main centers in the body that produce the energy or the aura, and these energy centers are called
Chakras. These energy fields can be scanned over a long distance and then interpreted in the analysis. The
analysis provide perfect evaluation of material and spiritual status of an individual. The auric pattern rather
provides a much more complete picture as regards realistic state of happening. It indicates upon
relationship harmony, success in work, hurdles and obstacles to be cautious upon, general physical and
emotional health. The analysis is very significant because not an individual learn about the pluses and
minuses, but also have a corrective solution.

Device Allows Colorblind Artist to “Hear” Colors

(CBS News) A man who has never been able to see color before is now able to perceive it thanks to a device that lets him listen to colors. Artist Neil Harbisson suffers from a visual condition called achromatopsia or total color blindness. Harbisson can only see things in shades of grey. So, he partnered with some computer scientists at the in 2003, who created an “electronic eye” for him.

New Lucid Dream Study Reveals Seat of Meta-Consciousness in Brain

(Eurekalert) Which areas of the brain help us to perceive our world in a self-reflective manner is difficult to measure. During wakefulness, we are always conscious of ourselves. In sleep, however, we are not. But there are people, known as lucid dreamers, who can become aware of dreaming during sleep.
