History of the Illuminati The Illuminati trace their origins back thousands of years to their conception as a result of the genetic inbreeding between a reptilian extraterrestrial race and humanity. Their modern origin, however, traces back to the 1760s and a man named Adam Weishaupt, who defected from the Catholic church and organized the Illuminati, financed by the International Bankers. Since then, according to the Illuminati, their top goal has been to achieve a “one world government” and to subjugate all religions and governments in the process. The Illuminati thus attribute all wars since the French Revolution as having been fomented by them in their pursuit of their goals. Weishaupt wrote out a master plan in the 1770s outlining the Illuminati’s goals, finishing on May 1, 1776. In the 1780s, the Bavarian Government found out about the Illuminati’s subversive activities, forcing the Illuminati to disband and go underground. Their short-term plan foiled, the Illuminati adopted a different strategy.

Researchers at the Basic Psychology Unit at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona analysed the responses of 254 students from the Faculty of Psychology in different questionnaires. Research data shows that students who are more resilient, 20% of those surveyed, are more satisfied with their lives and are also those who believe they have control over their emotions and their state of mind. "Some of the characteristics of being resilient can be worked on and improved, such as self-esteem and being able to regulate one's emotions. [ Print | E-mail AAAS and EurekAlert!

Abnormaldiversity Can DMT Connect the Human Brain to a Parallel Universe? If you'd asked this question a few decades ago you'd have been met with raucous laughter – nowadays, however, the idea of parallel universes is taken seriously by scientists at the cutting edge, while our understanding of consciousness is slowly but surely outgrowing the materialistic understanding developed in Victorian times. Learning Mind takes a look at the pioneering work of Rick Strassman. Rick Strassman in his book «DMT: the Spirit Molecule», claims that DMT, which is one of the most powerful psychedelic drugs, can provide a reliable and regular access to the other planes of existence. In fact, they are always there and constantly transmit information. But we cannot perceive them because we are simply not designed for this: our ‘program’ keeps us tuned to the standard, mentally ‘normal’ channel. Just a few seconds are needed for the spirit molecule to reach the brain and change the mental channel, opening our minds to other planes of existence.

Grimm's Fairy Tales This book contains 209 tales collected by the brothers Grimm. The exact print source is unknown. The etext appears to be based on the translation by Margaret Hunt called Grimm's Household Tales, but it is not identical to her edition. (Some of the translations are slightly different, the arrangement also differs, and the Grimm's scholarly notes are not included.) The etext received by the Universal Library did not include story titles. Note that these tales are presented more or less as the Grimms collected and edited them (and as Hunt saw fit to translate them). NEW: There is now a more accurate version of the Hunt translation posted by William Barker.

What Your Facebook Profile Photo Says About You Your Facebook profile photo can say a lot about you, whether you realise it or not.

The Top 10 Psychology Studies of 2010 The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I'm thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year. I've focused on studies that I personally feel stand out, not only as examples of great science, but even more importantly, as examples of how the science of psychology can improve our lives. Each study has a clear "take home" message, offering the reader an insight or a simple strategy they can use to reach their goals , strengthen their relationships, make better decisions, or become happier. If you extract the wisdom from these ten studies and apply them in your own life, 2011 just might be a very good year. 1) How to Break Bad Habits If you are trying to stop smoking , swearing, or chewing your nails, you have probably tried the strategy of distracting yourself - taking your mind off whatever it is you are trying not to do - to break the habit.

Gallery of mystery part 2 Peru bronze wheels, described by professor Rafael Larco Hoyle in his work "Peru"; they resemble very much modern gears. The famous "Kiev astronaut": it's the only European little statue found until now which shows so evident "spatial" features. Two prehistoric Japanese little statues: they represent creatures who wear special space-suits and big helmets joined to the space-suit by a sort of bolt collar.

Introduction to Psychology - Download free content from MIT 8 - Polar Mythology ©2011, montalk.net (Version 0.1 – changelog provided at end of article) The Meaning of Myth Since myths are not literal accounts of history, they are easily dismissed as superstitious tales invented by our naïve ancestors. Far from being less than factual, myths may depict events and dynamics that are more than factual because they hail from beyond the limited modern conception of reality, beyond linear time, and beyond the five senses. What are myths really? Like dreams, myths allow passage of information across the boundary between realms. Myths are also like time capsules with nested layers, each layer encoding information intended for one type of recipient. Entertainment and Morality Layer – the outer wrapping that ensures the myth propagates through the generations. The deeper layers piggyback upon the shallower ones, and the entire bundle is unsuspectingly passed down the generations by commoners who enjoy the myth for its moral or entertainment value.
