Despite Negativity in Our Media, Scientists Say There is Universal Human Bias for Positive Words

Despite Negativity in Our Media, Scientists Say There is Universal Human Bias for Positive Words

Arabic movie subtitles, Korean tweets, Russian novels, Chinese websites, English lyrics, and even the war-torn pages of the New York Times — research examining billions of words, shows that these sources — and all human language — skews toward the use of happy words. This Big Data study confirms the 1969 Pollyanna Hypothesis that there is a universal human tendency to “look on and talk about the bright side of life.

No Big Bang? Quantum Equation Predicts Universe Has No Beginning

No Big Bang? Quantum Equation Predicts Universe Has No Beginning

The Big Bang Theory may be wrong. The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once. Although the Big Bang singularity theory arises directly and unavoidably from the mathematics of general relativity, some scientists see it as problematic because the math can explain only what happened immediately after—not at or before—the singularity

Rupert Sheldrake – The Science Delusion BANNED TED TALK

Rupert Sheldrake’s theory of morphic resonance challenges the mechanical-chemical premise that all modern medicine and science is based on. His TEDx talk must have caused outrage by establishment scientists because TED censored the video.

Reinventing the Wheel, Just So the Greedy Can Patent & Profit from it: Focus on Alzheimer’s

Reinventing the Wheel, Just So the Greedy Can Patent & Profit from it: Focus on Alzheimer’s

I have recently read 2 articles, and received a plea for pledges, regarding Alzheimers. So, I began to reflect upon how, and question why, in the quest to blaze new trails on which to diagnose or fight a disease, our scientific and research programs often do not look at the tools around them and fashion those tools to do the job just as well.

Cancer Develops from Fungal Infections, like Candida

Cancer Develops from Fungal Infections, like Candida

There are very few common threads among experts on what causes cancer, aside from obvious lifestyle choices like smoking and alcohol. However, to think cancer is largely caused by one thing is a bit too simplistic…or is it? Turns out, it may not be that complicated. A simple fungal infection can cause cancer…Candida.

Why Can’t the World’s Greatest Minds Solve the Mystery of Consciousness?

Why Can’t the World’s Greatest Minds Solve the Mystery of Consciousness?

One spring morning in Tucson, Arizona, in 1994, an unknown philosopher named David Chalmers got up to give a talk on consciousness, by which he meant the feeling of being inside your head, looking out – or, to use the kind of language that might give a neuroscientist an aneurysm, of having a soul. Though he didn’t realize it at the time, the young Australian academic was about to ignite a war between philosophers and scientists, by drawing attention to a central mystery of human life – perhaps the central mystery of human life – and revealing how embarrassingly far they were from solving it.

Could Curry Banish Bad Memories? Turmeric Prevents Fear Being Stored In the Brain, Scientists Claim

Scientists found that curcumin, a compound found in the root of the Indian spice, prevented new fear memories being stored in the brain. It also removed pre-existing fear memories, researchers found. Scientists hope findings will contribute to the development of treatments for psychological conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

BIG Discovery ~ Speed of Light Not So Constant After All

BIG Discovery ~ Speed of Light Not So Constant After All

Light doesn’t always travel at the speed of light. A new experiment reveals that focusing or manipulating the structure of light pulses reduces their speed, even in vacuum conditions. A paper reporting the research, posted online at arXiv.org and accepted for publication, describes hard experimental evidence that the speed of light, one of the most important constants in physics, should be thought of as a limit rather than an invariable rate for light zipping through a vacuum.

New Glasses Transform The Way Colorblind People See The World

An estimated 32 million Americans experience some degree of colorblindness, according to the Wall Street Journal. New eyewear, which range from $325 to $450 and address red-green colorblindness — the most common form — have the potential to help four in five people with the condition by making everyday, outdoor tasks easier.

Have We Found Alien Life? Microbes That Eat and Breathe Electricity Have Forced Scientists To Reimagine How Life Works—On This Planet And Others

Have We Found Alien Life? Microbes That Eat and Breathe Electricity Have Forced Scientists To Reimagine How Life Works—On This Planet And Others

From the mightiest blue whale to the most humble microbe, every organism depends on moving and manipulating electrons; it’s the fuel that living matter uses to survive, grow, and reproduce. The bacteria at USC depend on energy, too, but they obtain it in a fundamentally different fashion. They don’t breathe in the sense that you and I do. In the most extreme cases, they don’t consume any conventional food, either. Instead, they power themselves in the most elemental way: by eating and breathing electricity.
