Out-Of-Body Experience Research Center study suggest alien abduction stories may be vivid dream experiences

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Having many times had the experience of ‘contacting alien intelligences’ thru the curious methodology of astral projection training, I can certainly confirm that this kind of experience – the vivid sense of communication with “aliens” – does happen during astral projection training and so-called ‘astral travel’. I’m not claiming […]

The brain’s ability to speed up and the crisis “Slow Motion” effect as a memory phenomenon

Anyone studying brain and mind is likely to have noticed that certain things can change the speed and intensity of perception, and change the way memories of events are created and stored.

Here’s an article about this phenomenon, suggesting the the brain speeds up in times of crisis – presumably triggered by some combination of […]

Death, the contemplation and confrontation of death, the implications of death, and coping with the experience of death of loved ones and the shock of possible death for oneself, is the major impetus for esoteric and spiritual thinking and philosophy building.

Mineral of the Day – natural structures of crystals

The Mineral of the Day

Because I think these have a real beauty to them.

Much of human history, and the power of himans, comes from our relationship to minerals. Using stones as colors, hammers, grinders, scrapers, and eventually sophisticated flint blade technology, the paleo and neolithic cultures. Clay and ceramcs, the chalcolithic cultures. […]

His argument is based on the fact that for more than 99 per cent of human evolutionary history, we have lived as hunter-gatherer communities surviving on our wits, leading to big-brained humans. Since the invention of agriculture and cities, however, natural selection on our intellect has effective stopped and mutations have accumulated in the critical “intelligence” genes.

“I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas and a clear-sighted view of important issues,” Professor Crabtree says in a provocative paper published in the journal Trends in Genetics.

“Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues. I would also make this wager for the ancient inhabitants of Africa, Asia, India or the Americas, of perhaps 2,000 to 6,000 years ago,” Professor Crabtree says.

“The basis for my wager comes from new developments in genetics, anthropology, and neurobiology that make a clear prediction that our intellectual and emotional abilities are genetically surprisingly fragile,” he says.
