Why God Is In the “Transpersonal”

Why God Is In the “Transpersonal”

Why Some People with Brain Markers of Alzheimer’s Have No Dementia

Why Some People with Brain Markers of Alzheimer’s Have No Dementia

A new study from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has uncovered why some people that have brain markers of Alzheimer’s never develop the classic dementia that others do. The study is now available in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, affects more than 5 million Americans. People suffering from Alzheimer’s develop a buildup of two proteins that impair communications between nerve cells in the brain — plaques made of amyloid beta proteins and neurofibrillary tangles made of tau proteins.

What We Say Subconsciously with Our Voice & Why We Like Certain Voices More than Others

Inventor of Super Efficient Electricity Generator on Suppression of Free Energy Machines

Inventor of Super Efficient Electricity Generator on Suppression of Free Energy Machines

What is a ‘free energy’ machine? It doesn’t mean ‘free’ as in the monetary sense, but more so ‘free’ as in the resource being extracted to produce the energy, as Nikola Tesla once said, is available in “unlimited quantities.” It’s not like extracting oil from the Earth, and using that oil to power our planet because we know, first of all, that it’s destroying our planet; secondly, it’s not a limitless source of energy. New developments in all areas of science, especially ones that don’t seem to fit the frame, always receive harsh criticism, and are dealt blows to their progress and acceptance with labels like ‘pseudoscience.’

Here’s Why Half of the Life You Experience is Over by Age 7

Have you ever observed that time seems to be going by faster as you get older? There’s a reason that one summer seems to stretch out forever when you’re a kid, but zips by before you know it when you’re 30. That reason is perspective, as a gorgeous interactive visualization, by Austrian designer Maximilian Kiener, demonstrates. When you’re one year old, a year is literally forever to you — it’s all the time that you’ve ever known. But as you grow older, one year is a smaller and smaller fraction of your total life.
