New Study Reveals Evidence We Live in a ‘Holographic Universe’ – Collective Evolution.

Global Consciousness

About SYS — Madeline Schwartzman. See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception is an explosive and timely survey that explores the relationship between design, the body, technology and the senses over the last fifty years.

About SYS — Madeline Schwartzman

Get ready to say goodbye to unconscious sensing and embrace cyborgs, post-humans, mediated reality and all manner of cutting edge sensory interventions like seeing with your tongue or plugging your nervous system directly into a computer. Astounding experiments with interaction design, cybernetics, neuroscience and art illustrate how we see and sense, and how artistic interpretation can undermine our fundamental perception of the world and ourselves. About SYX — Madeline Schwartzman. See Yourself X: Human Futures Expanded (SYX) is the second volume of Madeline Schwartzman’s timely series that looks at human perception and the sensory apparatus.

About SYX — Madeline Schwartzman

See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception (2011)—the first of the series—is a collection of fifty years of futuristic proposals for the body and the senses. See Yourself X focuses in on our fundamental perceptual domain—the human head—presenting an array of conceptual and constructed ideas for extending ourselves physically into space. What will be the physical future of the head and the sensory apparatus in fifty years time, as the mechanisms for how we communicate and sense change, and become obsolete, prompted by the advancement of brain-to-brain communication? SYX looks at where we are now, in the hope of projecting into that future.

The Psychology of Time and the Paradox of How Impulsivity and Self-Control Mediate Our Capacity for Presence. “Reality is never and nowhere more accessible than in the immediate moment of one’s own life,” Kafka once told a teenage friend.

The Psychology of Time and the Paradox of How Impulsivity and Self-Control Mediate Our Capacity for Presence

“It’s only there that it can be won or lost.” The great Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky believed that what draws us to film is the gift of time — “time lost or spent or not yet had.” Time Might Only Exist in Your Head. And Everyone Else’s. Past.

Time Might Only Exist in Your Head. And Everyone Else’s

Present. Future. In physics, they are all the same thing. But to you, me, and everyone else, time moves in one direction: from expectation, through experience, and into memory. This linearity is called the arrow of time, and some physicists believe it only progresses that way because humans, and other beings with similar neurological wiring, exist to observe its passing.

The Power of Words: How Words Affect Your Energy

When spoken out loud, words transform into vibrations that can be used to direct energy. This is one of the first steps to creating magic effects. 9 Mind-Bending Epiphanies That Turned My World Upside-Down. Over the years I’ve learned dozens of little tricks and insights for making life more fulfilling.

9 Mind-Bending Epiphanies That Turned My World Upside-Down

They’ve added up to a significant improvement in the ease and quality of my day-to-day life. But the major breakthroughs have come from a handful of insights that completely rocked my world and redefined reality forever. The world now seems to be a completely different one than the one I lived in about ten years ago, when I started looking into the mechanics of quality of life. It wasn’t the world (and its people) that changed really, it was how I thought of it. Maybe you’ve had some of the same insights. Mind Over Matter: Princeton & Russian Scientist Reveal The Secrets of Human Aura & Intentions – The Mind Unleashed. A Russian scientist has been studying the human energy field and is claiming that people can change the world simply by using their own energy.

While this idea is not new, not too many have taken the time to scientifically go about proving such ideas -although the field of quantum physics has shed some powerful light on the topic over the years. Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, professor of physics at St. Alisa Miller: How the news distorts our worldview. Scientists: Earth Endangered by New Strain of Fact-Resistant Humans. MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report)—Scientists have discovered a powerful new strain of fact-resistant humans who are threatening the ability of Earth to sustain life, a sobering new study reports.

Scientists: Earth Endangered by New Strain of Fact-Resistant Humans

The research, conducted by the University of Minnesota, identifies a virulent strain of humans who are virtually immune to any form of verifiable knowledge, leaving scientists at a loss as to how to combat them. “These humans appear to have all the faculties necessary to receive and process information,” Davis Logsdon, one of the scientists who contributed to the study, said.

“And yet, somehow, they have developed defenses that, for all intents and purposes, have rendered those faculties totally inactive.” As Above So Below:  What Can Other Or Higher “Dimensions” Really Mean? – Collective Evolution. The readers of Collective Evolution are generally open to the expansion of our scientific inquiries to include the realm of consciousness, or as was suggested at the Science and Nonduality Conference, an “Observer-based” science to take into account the findings of quantum physics.

At SAND speakers like Bernardo Kastrup discussed his book, Why Materialism is Baloney, and Menas Kafatos and Jay Kumar have presented cogent concepts to expand our science. These two slides provide an overview. Dr.
