Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.

Science Proves That Human Consciousness and Our Material World Are Intertwined: See For Yourself

To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Swami Vivekananda influenced Tesla’s work, an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna. Radical Behaviourism and Society. Here is yet another entry for the Rational Skepticism Science Writing Contest.

Please give it a read and, if you like it, vote for it! Also, I may have failed to mention, the general topic the essays must address is “What area of scientific research do you think will prove to be the most important by the end of this century, and why?” By Mr. Samsa B. Umberto Eco’s Antilibrary: Why Unread Books Are More Valuable to Our Lives than Read Ones. By Maria Popova.

Holistic Science. MSc, PG Cert Western science is dominated by ‘reductionism’ – the idea that natural phenomena can be explained in terms of their component parts.

Holistic Science

Reductionism is incomplete, and can be counter-productive since it suggests that by analysing the ‘mechanical’ workings of nature we can fully predict and manipulate it. Holistic science recognises the limitations of this methodology, focusing instead on nature’s qualities, complexity and intrinsic value, giving a science fit to solve global challenges. Schumacher College in partnership with Plymouth University (link is external) is the first in the world to offer a postgraduate programme in Holistic Science. What is Holistic Science? The programme explores new methodologies that are gaining success in exploring natural systems.

The course provides methodologies that go beyond reductionism in understanding dynamic interactive systems, whether these are ecosystems, the weather, organisations, a plant or a developing human embryo. Humans already living in a COMPUTER SIMULATION, leading Nobel Prize astrophysicist warns. Astrophysicist, cosmologist and Nobel Prize winner George Smoot has presented some convincing arguments on why he believes we already living in a simulation.

He says that the progress of video games is an example that humans are already capable of producing virtual realities. He said: “Will humans produce realistic simulations? The answer is yes. Meet the Robin Hood of Science. The tale of how one researcher has made nearly every scientific paper ever published available for free to anyone, anywhere in the world.

Meet the Robin Hood of Science

On the evening of November 9th, 1989, the Cold War came to a dramatic end with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Four years ago another wall began to crumble, a wall that arguably has as much impact on the world as the wall that divided East and West Germany. The wall in question is the network of paywalls that cuts off tens of thousands of students and researchers around the world, at institutions that can’t afford expensive journal subscriptions, from accessing scientific research.

On September 5th, 2011, Alexandra Elbakyan, a researcher from Kazakhstan, created Sci-Hub, a website that bypasses journal paywalls, illegally providing access to nearly every scientific paper ever published immediately to anyone who wants it. Researcher illegally shares millions of science papers free online to spread knowledge.

A researcher in Russia has made more than 48 million journal articles - almost every single peer-reviewed paper every published - freely available online.

And she's now refusing to shut the site down, despite a court injunction and a lawsuit from Elsevier, one of the world's biggest publishers. For those of you who aren't already using it, the site in question is Sci-Hub, and it's sort of like a Pirate Bay of the science world. It was established in 2011 by neuroscientist Alexandra Elbakyan, who was frustrated that she couldn't afford to access the articles needed for her research, and it's since gone viral, with hundreds of thousands of papers being downloaded daily. But at the end of last year, the site was ordered to be taken down by a New York district court - a ruling that Elbakyan has decided to fight, triggering a debate over who really owns science.

New Experiment Will Answer Some Mind-Bending Questions On Whether We Live In a Hologram. The Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory is completing a unique experiment called the Holometer which has recently started collecting data to answer some mind-bending questions about our universe–including whether we live in a hologram.

New Experiment Will Answer Some Mind-Bending Questions On Whether We Live In a Hologram

Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3-D world exists only on a 2-D screen, we could be clueless that our 3-D space is just an illusion. The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions. Take a look around you. The walls, the chair you’re sitting in, your own body – they all seem real and solid. Scientists Discover Quadruple Helix: Four Strand DNA In Human Cells. The human race knows very little of itself, almost like a race with amnesia. As we continue to move forward through time, new discoveries are made that make old theories obsolete and false. It’s a good lesson that shows us how we can attach ourselves to “truths” and believe them whole-heartedly, often forgetting that truth is constantly changing and new paradigms of perception always lurk around the corner.

Decades after scientists described our “chemical code” of life using the double helix DNA, researchers have discovered four-stranded DNA within human cells. The structures are called G-quadruplexes, because they form in regions of DNA that are full of guanine, one of the DNA molecule’s four building blocks. The others are adenine, cytosine and thymine.
