29 Signs You’re Doing Just Fine (Even If It Doesn’t Feel Like It) Email Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to keep things in perspective and deal with them. We all have days, weeks, months and – for some – even years of feeling anxious and uncertain. It’s a vague feeling you can’t quite put your finger on. Futurist The actual programme which includes understanding change, innovation engineering, advanced thinking, organisational foresight and immersion projects is presented at a level to stimulate the best thinkers. This will be a marvellous opportunity for our existing innovators and future leaders to acquire an understanding of futures thinking that will eventually contribute to our society. We look forward to hearing more. Yvonne CURTIS (New Zealand Futures Trust) This program contains many new and innovative aspects and is certain to attract a wide range of talented people who are seeking to understand and deal with our dynamically evolving world. Foresight and innovation are not merely current ‘buzz words.’

Is the Universe a 2D Hologram? Experiment Aims to Find Out An ongoing experiment could reveal whether or not our full and fleshed-out 3D universe is an illusion, a 2D projection onto a cosmic screen beyond our perception or understanding. The Holometer project, which is based at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Illinois, is now operating at full power, probing the very nature of space-time itself. "We want to find out whether space-time is a quantum system just like matter is," Craig Hogan, director of Fermilab's Center for Particle Astrophysics, said in a statement. "If we see something, it will completely change ideas about space we've used for thousands of years." [See more photos of the Holometer experiment]

What Will the World Be Like in 2112? Daron Acemoglu What will life be like in 100 years? Daron Acemoglu, an Elizabeth and James Killian Professor in the Department of Economics, pondered this question as he awaited the birth of his son. Over time, Acemoglu’s contemplation led him to wonder what kind of world his potential grandchildren would inherit, and how recent political, social, and economic trends would shape this future society. The Looming Threat of "Generation Z" "Here Comes Generation Z," cheers a headline on Bloomberg View. "If, like me, you've been looking for a primer to explain Generation Z, the one that follows the 'Y' millennials," the writer says, "take a look at this 56-slide presentation by Sparks & Honey, a hard-to-pin-down organization that's part marketing agency and part think tank." This presentation is not a primer. Nor is it a marketing deck, though that is its form.

12 Laws of the Future 12 Laws of the Future For several decades now I have been contemplating our relationship with the future. Many of my colleagues think of me as that crazy guy who assigns human attributes to this thing we call the future. Subconscious —Ayn Rand Lexicon Your subconscious is like a computer—more complex a computer than men can build—and its main function is the integration of your ideas. Who programs it? Your conscious mind. 2015 – Le krach mondial n’aura pas lieu We could have also headed our article : “No, the inflating of the Chinese stock exchanges isn’t a bubble”. The Shanghai stock exchange’s exuberant 100% increase in one year is certainly frightening, but it reflects a real dynamic (or rather a correction) of the country’s economic development. One really has to wonder how real money (Chinese savings) invested in real needs (infrastructure, social systems, decontamination, Silk Road…) could create a bubble. Our team wants to pick up on the inconsistency that there is of being afraid of the financial centres’ gain in value in the obvious economic development zones like China whilst, for years, the whole world must marvel at the Western stock exchanges’ numbers, in particular in the US, in complete contradiction to the economic fundamentals of the areas concerned. Yes, the US stock exchange is in a full bubble (as well as, to a lesser extent, Japan and Europe).

A wealth of information about Deep Web (56K WARNING; ALSO DISTURBING CONTENT) First of all, those of you who come across this post undoubtedly want to know just what the fuck the Deep Web is... This article should help to explain it a little bit.. The deep web is usually defined as the content on the Web not accessible through a search on general search engines. This content is sometimes also referred to as the hidden or invisible web.The Web is a complex entity that contains information from a variety of source types and includes an evolving mix of different file types and media. It is much more than static, self-contained Web pages. In fact, the part of the Web that is not static, and is served dynamically "on the fly," is far larger than the static documents that many associate with the Web.The concept of the deep Web is becoming more complex as search engines have found ways to integrate deep Web content into their central search function.

Ford releases electric vehicle technology patents 29th May 2015 Ford releases electric vehicle technology patents In June 2014, Tesla released its patents in an effort to accelerate the development of electric vehicles (EVs). Following Tesla's lead, Ford has now taken similar action by opening its portfolio of EV technology patents to competitors.

John Lilly Vault : Omni Interview Above the ranch-style dream houses and seafood restaurants along the Pacific Coast Highway the rugged, bleached Malibu canyons, twisting roads, dusty scrub oaks, and desert sagebrush speak a supernal language. It is a landscape of the spirit more than of the body, and Dr. John C. Lilly, dolphin magus and scientist-turned-seeker, seems at home here -- where the spectacular surf down at Zuma Beach is a mere rim of white foam on the edge of the world. If life imitates art, Dr. Lilly should live on just such a mountaintop. ‘Thought vectors’ could revolutionize artificial intelligence Despite all the recent hullabaloo concerning artificial intelligence, in part fueled by dire predictions made by the likes of Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, there have been few breakthroughs in the field to warrant such fanfare. The artificial neural networks that have caused so much controversy are a product of the 1950s and 60s, and remain relatively unchanged since then. The strides forward made in areas like speech recognition owe as much to improved datasets (think big data) and faster hardware than to actual changes in AI methodology.

John Lilly, Ketamine and the Entities from ECCO by Adam Gorightly - by Adam Gorightly (exclusive to In the early 70's, John Lilly was introduced to the drug Ketamine by Dr. Craig Enright in the hopes of alleviating the pain associated with Lilly's chronic migraine headaches, which he had been suffering like clockwork — every 18 hours — for most of his often-adventurous life. Lilly, at the time, was at Esalen Institute conducting seminars when one of these massive migraines hit him. In situations such as these, Lilly withdrew into privacy, to suffer alone through the many endless hours of severe discomfort.
