In 1999 a technology manager called Kevin Ashton coined the phrase “The Internet of Things”. It was to convey the fact that not everything connected to the Internet generates data via humans tapping on keyboards. Today, these “things” now include elements of our critical national infrastructure via what are called SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) systems or ICS (Industrial Control Systems). Unfortunately, these systems can be just as vulnerable to attack as our laptops. Security through obscurity has helped to protect these systems until recently as they are not obvious to regular Internet users.
Psilocybin mushrooms, also known as shrooms. By Berit Brogaard and Kristian Marlow Whether "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" was a product of the Beatles' experimentation with psychedelic drugs is still a subject of great debate among Beatles fans and music experts.

Blake wrote : If the doors of perception were cleansed, every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.
An amyloid plaque in the brain Alzheimer’s disease is characterised by the substantial loss of neurons (nerve cells) in the brain. However, when researchers examine the brains of people who have died with Alzheimer’s, they do not see more dead neurons than in people of the same age without Alzheimer’s. Thousands of cells missing, presumed dead, but how can we solve the mystery – and stop it happening in others – if there are no bodies? To discover what’s going on, we have to consider what might be killing the neurons and how.
You can change the world. It's easy. How? In this video , scientist Gregg Braden explains how the Law of Attraction works. That there is a field around us, a collective consciousness, in which we all participate. This collective consciousness creates our reality.
The Stone is a forum for contemporary philosophers on issues both timely and timeless. Despite rumors to the contrary, there are many ways in which the human brain isn’t all that fancy. Let’s compare it to the nervous system of a fruit fly. Both are made up of cells, of course, with neurons playing particularly important roles.

First popularized by the political scientist James Flynn, the effect refers to the widespread increase in IQ scores over time. Some measures of intelligence — such as performance on Raven’s Progressive Matrices in Des Moines and Scotland — have been increasing for at least 100 years. What’s most peculiar is how scores have increased:
May 24, 2011 Everyone has the occasional “senior moment.” Maybe you’ve gone into the kitchen and can’t remember why, or can’t recall a familiar name during a conversation.
Six Thinking Hats is a book by Edward de Bono . The term Six Thinking Hats is used to describe the tool for group discussion and individual thinking. "Six Thinking Hats" and the associated idea parallel thinking provide a means for groups to plan thinking processes in a detailed and cohesive way, and in doing so to think together more effectively. [ 2 ] The tool is finding some use in the United Kingdom innovation sector, is offered by some facilitation companies, and has been trialled within the United Kingdom's civil service . [ 3 ]
By Daily Mail Reporter Created 4:03 PM on 24th March 2011 A 12-year-old child prodigy has astounded university professors after grappling with some of the most advanced concepts in mathematics. Jacob Barnett has an IQ of 170 - higher than Albert Einstein - and is now so far advanced in his Indiana university studies that professors are lining him up for a PHD research role.
Interruption-free space is sacred. Yet, in the digital era we live in, we are losing hold of the few sacred spaces that remain untouched by email, the internet, people, and other forms of distraction. Our cars now have mobile phone integration and a thousand satellite radio stations. When walking from one place to another, we have our devices streaming data from dozens of sources. Even at our bedside, we now have our iPads with heaps of digital apps and the world’s information at our fingertips.
With rendition switcher Question: Will it be possible to transfer one’s memory into a synthetic medium in our lifetime? (Submitted by Tomas Aftalion) Michio Kaku: Tomas, you ask a very controversial question. The question is, can you download our consciousness into a chip and have that chip being stored into a computer and basically have our personalities last forever; we would be immortal.
