Creation, religion, beliefs:

That’s exactly how it went down. Fariss seemed like a decent enough guy. He was friendly, relaxed, and even a little charming. And yet somehow, his brain is tuned to a frequency that doesn’t even exist on my dial. Fariss’s outwardly hip, tech-saavy church Mars Hill has frequently come under fire for homophobia and misogyny, usually through the inflammatory and provocative remarks of founder Mark Driscoll.

Pagans consider it to be sacred geometry containing ancient religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. In the pagan sense, it is believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things and is the visual expression of the connections of life that run through all sentient beings.

Kabbalah and the Tree of Life Symbol:

Kabbalah and the Tree of Life At the creation there was one form of Energy, Love between the Universal Father and the Universal Son. Then this Love projected itself in two opposite qualities: Matter and Spirit. These 3 energies refined themselves into 7 : These 7 energies correspond to the 7 chakras, but it is a more general sturucture: it is possible to point out 7 levels between matter and spirit in many systems: firms, social organizations, living cells...

The term is alternatively transliterated into English as Sefirot/Sefiroth, singular Sephirah/Sefirah etc. Alternative configurations of the sephirot are given by different schools in the historical development of Kabbalah, with each articulating different spiritual aspects. The tradition of enumerating 10 is stated in the Sefer Yetzirah, "Ten sephirot of nothingness, ten and not nine, ten and not eleven".

This is the Law of Vibration, a law of nature that states that ‘nothing rests; everything moves; every-thing vibrates.’ The lower the vibration, the slower the vibration; the higher the vibration the faster the vibration. The difference between the manifestations of the physical, mental, emo-tional and spiritual result simply from different levels of vibrating energy, or frequencies.

Autonomic nervous system

Figure drawn by the authors, incorporating material from Gray's Anatomy 31st Edition 1954, and from Cannon and Rosenblueth Physiology of the Autonomic Nervous System, 1937. The term autonomic nervous system (ANS) refers to collections of motor neurons (ganglia) situated in the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis, and to the axonal connections of these neurons (Figure 1). Autonomic pathways, together with somatic motor pathways to skeletal muscle and neuroendocrine pathways, are the means whereby the central nervous system (CNS) sends commands to the rest of the body. There are also CNS components of the ANS, including brainstem and spinal autonomic preganglionic neurons that project to the autonomic motor neurons in the peripheral ganglia.

Vagus Nerve - a comprehensive view. Love your vagus nerve. One of the great mysteries of life, is how the vagus nerve can be so widely ignored. It’s the biggest nerve in the body and it extends from brain (starting near the carotid artery) and down through the chest cavity. It directly communicates with the lungs, heart, liver, blood vessels in the lungs, heart and gut, the stomach and small intestine, the pancreas, and the enteric nervous system, which I wrote about before .

One of the big things it does, is get the parasympathetic nervous system to kick in. It balances out the whacked, adrenaline-crazed sympathetic nervous system, and gets us to chill out. It can head anxiety attacks off at the pass. Let’s face it, going 90 mph all day, every day… bouncing from one multi-task flurry to another is no way to live.

Introduction: This month's MOTM is an inorganic cubane complex known as the manganese-calcium oxide cluster, commonly referred to as the "Oxygen Evolving Complex" or OEC (also referred to as a photosynthetic water oxidase). The OEC is located on the oxidizing side of Photosystem II (PSII), and isolated within organelles known as , a plastid found in all plants and algae. The OEC is also found in one group of bacteria, the Cyanobacteria (formally called the "blue-green algae", a name now discounted since they are in fact bacteria).

It is believed that the Cyanobacteria are the endosymbiotic ancestors of modern day chloroplasts. () In the case of higher plants and algae, the OEC is found embedded within , structurally differentiated into either stacked (grana) or diffused membranes within the stroma (stromal lamellae, the stroma is a term for the cytoplasmic region of the chloroplast). 1.

Coyne from the University of Chicago is a distinguished biologist of Speciation fame and a well-known figure in the intelligent design vs. evolution debate. He for some reason felt obliged to lay out the evidence for evolution, but unlike the one mentioned above, which is a highly technical textbook (co-authored with H. Allen Orr) and an embarrassingly difficult read even for professionals, Why Evolution Is True is a delightful book designed for the average reader. Isn’t this so-called ID-evolution debate already settled? Apparently not. But here’s the thing: the evidence for evolution is overwhelming. At any rate, Dr. Chapter 3 happens to contain my favourite example, one from ontogenesis.
