Quantum nonlocality Quantum nonlocality is the phenomenon by which the measurements made at a microscopic level necessarily refute one or more notions (often referred to as local realism) that are regarded as intuitively true in classical mechanics. Rigorously, quantum nonlocality refers to quantum mechanical predictions of many-system measurement correlations that cannot be simulated by any local hidden variable theory. Many entangled quantum states produce such correlations when measured, as demonstrated by Bell's theorem. Experiments have generally favoured quantum mechanics as a description of nature, over local hidden variable theories.[1][2] Any physical theory that supersedes or replaces quantum theory must make similar experimental predictions and must therefore also be nonlocal in this sense; quantum nonlocality is a property of the universe that is independent of our description of nature.

Re: The creation of my personal beliefs I was pleased to receive the following questions regarding the development of my personal beliefs. Dearest Jenna, I do not personally know you, albeit I know many of the construct of your beliefs through reading your blogs and website. I know your sister through school and I think she’s wonderful.

Quantum entanglement Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently – instead, a quantum state may be given for the system as a whole. Such phenomena were the subject of a 1935 paper by Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen,[1] describing what came to be known as the EPR paradox, and several papers by Erwin Schrödinger shortly thereafter.[2][3] Einstein and others considered such behavior to be impossible, as it violated the local realist view of causality (Einstein referred to it as "spooky action at a distance"),[4] and argued that the accepted formulation of quantum mechanics must therefore be incomplete. History[edit] However, they did not coin the word entanglement, nor did they generalize the special properties of the state they considered.

Ever heard of Unitarian Universalism? I hadn’t either, but when someone asked if I had joined any UU congregations, I had to find out what this was. Here is wikipedia’s explanation. Unitarian Universalism is a religious community characterized by support for a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning”. Unitarian Universalists do not share a creed; rather, they are unified by their shared search for spiritual growth and by the understanding that an individual’s theology is a result of that search and not obedience to an authoritarian requirement. Unitarian Universalists draw on many different theological sources and have a wide range of beliefs and practices. Contemporary Unitarian Universalists espouse a pluralist approach to religion, whereby the followers may be atheist, theist, or any point in between.

Science - Quantum Physics of Consciousness and Physical Reality by StarStuffs We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense...There is no place in this new kind of physics for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality." Albert Einstein, with his general theory of relativity, opened the doors of science along with the mystical realities. Einstein theorized that space and time are intertwined and that matter is inseparable from an ever-present quantum energy field and this is the sole reality underlying all appearances. This theory challenged the basic assumptions about the universe and what it contained. Physicists found that the most basic atomic particles in the cosmos comprise the very fabric of the material universe.

Krishnamurti on ‘Pacem in terris’ – peace on earth at UN in 1984 – 8 parts Jiddu Krishnamurti is currently my guide, and he gave this speech the year I was born!! Wow. How slowly this transformation is taking place. . . patience! Earth's mantle helps hunt for fifth force of nature Interactions NASAElectrons' spin may give rise to a force that allows particles to interact over very long distances. In general, people tend to use the phrase "force of nature" loosely, as in "she's a real force of nature." But physicists are pickier--they reserve the phrase for just four separate, universal forces they call the "fundamental forces": gravity, electro-magnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces, which hold the nucleus together and are involved with radioactive decay, respectively. That doesn't mean physicists rule out the possibility that other forces exist. Since the models they have for explaining everything are incomplete, there's a fairly good chance that there's something else out there, pulling matter apart or pushing it together in a different way than all the forces identified so far. Scientists search for the 'unparticle'

Vertical Farming Current Projects for the near Future from Inspiration Green This information was compiled by Inspiration Green. Advantages of Vertical Farming Year-round crop production; 1 indoor acre is equivalent to 4-6 outdoor acres or more, depending upon the crop (e.g., strawberries: 1 indoor acre = 30 outdoor acres)No weather-related crop failures due to droughts, floods, pestsAll Vertically Farmed (VF) food is grown organically: no herbicides or pesticides.VF virtually eliminates agricultural runoff by recycling gray waterVF adds energy back to the grid via methane generation from composting non-edible parts of plants and animalsVF dramatically reduces fossil fuel use (no tractors, plows, shipping.) ‘By the year 2050, nearly 80% of the earth’s population will reside in urban centers.
