Upper Body Strength Key Factor In Men’s Bodily Attractiveness

Study results showed that it was possible to almost perfectly predict how attractive a man’s body is from three things: how physically strong he looks, how tall he is, and how lean he is. The effect of strength was so large that none of the 150 women in the study preferred weak men.

Neuroscientists Discover a Unique Link Between Breathing and The Brain

Scientists found that “volitional control and awareness of breathing engage distinct but overlapping brain circuits.” What does this mean? Basically, when we voluntarily control the breath, even if we just focus on the breath, we create additional access and synchronicity between different parts of the brain.

Why Scientific Proof is a Myth

We simply cannot observe and measure everything, so how does that impact what we’ve discovered about everything else we are measuring? There are so many variants to consider when trying to prove anything. We can speculate all we want, but how can we ever prove anything without a shadow of a doubt?

Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science says there’s a good chance you don’t know what really makes you happy. When estimating our happiness, we humans tend to engage in something called “impact bias” where we overestimate the actual effect that different outcomes will have on our lives.

When if they think they’d be happier winning the lottery or becoming paraplegic, most people quite understandably respond that they’d be happier with all that money and no handicap.

Still, real life statistics show that one year after winning the lottery or losing the use of their lower body, people in both these groups are equally happy. Yes, really, EQUALLY.

Science Of The Whole: Integrating Matter and Spirit

Just as the scientists of today have evolved the tools to penetrate the secrets of the physical, so scientists of the future will evolve the tools to penetrate beyond the physical. This will mean developing as yet unused forms of perception – effectively, our “inner senses” – to the point at which they, too, will be as useful in the search for knowledge and understanding as our familiar five physical senses.

Your Brain Peforms Better When It Slows Down (Video)

Best-selling author Steven Kotler recently visited Big Think to discuss the optimization of consciousness through flow states, a key topic in his recently published book, The Rise of Superman. The best way to describe a flow state is to use the example of practically every action movie released since The Matrix. Experiencing flow is similar to being in “bullet time.” Like Keanu Reeves’ Neo (though certainly not on his level), a person in flow obtains the ability to keenly hone their focus on the task at hand so that everything else disappears.

New Aerial Images Show Mysterious Lost City In The Middle Of The Pacific Ocean

In the latest episode of What On Earth? on the Science Channel, viewers can gaze at recently taken satellite images showing the archaeological site, Nan Madol, from above. There are walls that are 25 feet tall and 17 feet thick. As Dr Patrick Hunt, an archaeologist at Stanford University, points out, “Why would somebody build a city out on the middle of the ocean? Why here, so far away from any other known civilization?”

How Life Arose from Primordial Muck: Experimental Evidence Overturns Accepted Theory

How Life Arose from Primordial Muck: Experimental Evidence Overturns Accepted Theory

Before there was life on Earth, there were simple chemicals. Somehow, they produced both amino acids and nucleotides that eventually became the proteins and nucleic acids necessary to create single cells. And the single cells became plants and animals. Research this century has revealed how the primordial chemical soup created the building blocks of life. But it’s still a mystery how the amino acid building blocks were first assembled according to coded nucleic acid templates into the proteins that formed the machinery of all cells.

Scientists Discover Hidden Chamber In Egypt’s Great Pyramid

In an article published in the journal Nature, an international team said the 30-meter void deep within the pyramid is situated above the structure’s Grand Gallery, and has a similar cross-section. The purpose of the space is unclear, and it’s not yet known whether it was built with a function in mind or if it’s merely a gap in the pyramid’s architecture.

New Study Backs Up Reports Of Near-Death Experiences, Claiming That Consciousness Continues To Work After The Heart Has Stopped

The idea that you remain conscious in the moments after death really is like something out of a horror movie, and it becomes even more terrifying when you put yourself in that situation. Imagine what it would be like to hear doctors talking about your death, but not being able to move or respond in any way; no longer living, but thinking as if you were.
