Taman Shud Case Following a public appeal by police, the copy of the Rubaiyat from which the page had been torn was located. On the inside back cover of the book, detectives were able to read – in indentions from handwriting – a local telephone number, another unidentified number and a text that resembled an encrypted message. The text has not been deciphered or interpreted in a way that satisfies authorities on the case. The case has been considered, since the early stages of the police investigation, "one of Australia's most profound mysteries".[1] There has been intense speculation ever since regarding the identity of the victim, the cause of his death and the events leading up to it. In addition to intense public interest in Australia during the late 1940s and early 1950s, the Tamam Shud case also attracted international attention.

Hellenic Nexus - Kβαντική Ψυχιατρική του δρ. Andrew Powell Το ψάρι είπε στο άλλο ψάρι: «Πάνω από τούτη τη θάλασσα είναι μια άλλη, με πλάσματα που κολυμπούν εκεί και ζουν εκεί, όπως εμείς ζούμε εδώ.» Το ψάρι απάντησε: «Τι τρέλα! Αφού ξέρεις πως καθένας που βγαίνει από τη θάλασσά μας, ας είναι και για τόσο δα, πεθαίνει. Ποιος σου είπε για άλλες ζωές σε άλλες θάλασσες;» Douglas Hofstadter Douglas Richard Hofstadter (born February 15, 1945) is an American professor of cognitive science whose research focuses on the sense of "I",[2][3] consciousness, analogy-making, artistic creation, literary translation, and discovery in mathematics and physics.

ΜΙΑ ΟΛΟΚΛΗΡΩΜΕΝΗ ΠΡΟΤΑΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΗΝ ΕΞΟΔΟ ΑΠΟ ΤΗΝ ΚΡΙΣΗ Ο Αριστοτέλης, διαχώρισε τα πολιτεύματα σε τρία βασικά είδη: Το πολίτευμα στο οποίο την εξουσία ασκεί ένας, αυτό που κυβερνάνε λίγοι και αυτό που κυβερνάνε πολλοί. Τα κατέταξε επίσης σε ορθά και "παραβιάσεις" ανάλογα με το αν εξυπηρετούν τα συμφέροντα του συνόλου ή τα προσωπικά συμφέροντα μέρους της κοινωνίας. Κατέταξε την τυραννία στις παραβιάσεις διότι εξυπηρετεί τα συμφέροντα ενός (του τύραννου), την ολιγαρχία γιατί εξυπηρετεί τα συμφέροντα των πλουσίων μόνο και τη δημοκρατία γιατί εξυπηρετεί τα συμφέροντα των φτωχών μόνο, άρα κανένα από τα πολιτεύματα αυτά δεν εξυπηρετεί την κοινωνία σαν σύνολο. (Η πολιτεία, είναι μια δημοκρατία όπου όμως μόνο οι ενάρετοι συμμετέχουν στις αποφάσεις).

La communauté de l’immortalité à Gavdos Sur une petite île rocheuse du sud de l’Europe, depuis une cabane en bois, un scientifique russe et barbu nous parle d’une mystérieuse congrégation religieuse. « Il n’y aura pas de nouvelles générations », nous dit-il, « nous sommes la dernière. Nous n’allons pas autoriser la naissance d’individus mortels. Ils ne sont pas nécessaires ». Avec sa clope roulée et son coupe-vent en loques, ce type a vraiment l’air d’un clodo. Anomalies-Unlimited Ghosts I've always got a kick how people will fall reverently silent and consider you blessed if you say you saw an angel or some "vision", but if you tell those same people you saw a ghost they'd tell you how full of it you were. Is there a difference? I sat in the library for 9 solid hours one day (heaven!)

25 Things You Should Know About Character Previous iterations of the “25 Things” series: 25 Things Every Writer Should Know 25 Things You Should Know About Storytelling A Brief History of the Skeptic In January 1981 a new phenomenon burst upon the publishing scene. It was manifested in a four page, tabloid format newspaper, titled the Skeptic and it contained articles headed “Skeptics Test Psychic Surgeon”, “Doris Stokes Wrong — Police” and “Alien Honeycomb Tested”, among others. This issue was followed in August 1981 by No 2, in a new 16 page A4 format, and in November by No 3, also of 16 pages. Scientific skepticism Carl Sagan, originator of the expression scientific skepticism Scientific skepticism (also spelled scepticism) is the practice of questioning whether claims are supported by empirical research and have reproducibility, as part of a methodological norm pursuing "the extension of certified knowledge".[1] For example, Robert K. Merton asserts that all ideas must be tested and are subject to rigorous, structured community scrutiny (see Mertonian norms).[2] About the term and its scope[edit] Scientific skepticism is also called rational skepticism, and it is sometimes referred to as skeptical inquiry. Scientific skepticism is different from philosophical skepticism, which questions our ability to claim any knowledge about the nature of the world and how we perceive it.

Debunker A debunker is a person who attempts to expose or discredit claims believed to be false, exaggerated or pretentious.[1] The term is closely associated with skeptical investigation of controversial topics such as U.F.O.s, claimed paranormal phenomena, cryptids, conspiracy theories, alternative medicine, religion, or exploratory or fringe areas of scientific or pseudoscientific research. According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, to "debunk" is defined as: To expose the falseness or hollowness of (a myth, idea, or belief).To reduce the inflated reputation of (someone), esp. by ridicule: "comedy takes delight in debunking heroes". If debunkers are not careful, their communications may backfire – increasing an audience's long-term belief in myths. Backfire effects can occur if a message spends too much time on the negative case, if it is too complex, or if the message is threatening.[2] Etymology[edit]
