Evidence for God from Science List of Acacia species known to contain psychoactive alkaloids This is a list of Acacia species (sensu lato) that are known to contain psychoactive alkaloids, or are suspected of containing such alkaloids due to being psychoactive.

The Manly P. Hall Archive Time The flow of sand in an hourglass can be used to keep track of elapsed time. It also concretely represents the present as being between the past and the future. Time is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future,[1][2][3][4][5][6] and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them.[3][7][8] Time has long been a major subject of study in religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a manner applicable to all fields without circularity has consistently eluded scholars.[3][7][8][9][10][11] Nevertheless, diverse fields such as business, industry, sports, the sciences, and the performing arts all incorporate some notion of time into their respective measuring systems.[12][13][14] Some simple, relatively uncontroversial definitions of time include "time is what clocks measure"[7][15] and "time is what keeps everything from happening at once".[16][17][18][19] Temporal measurement and history[edit] World time[edit]

Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus - Tabular view Thus the variable name 'x' is the proper sign for the pseudo-concept object. Wherever the word 'object' ('thing', etc.) is correctly used, it is expressed in conceptual notation by a variable name. For example, in the proposition, 'There are 2 objects which. . A formal concept is given immediately any object falling under it is given. If we want to express in conceptual notation the general proposition, 'b is a successor of a', then we require an expression for the general term of the series of forms 'aRb', '(d : c) : aRx . xRb', '(d x,y) : aRx . xRy . yRb', ... , In order to express the general term of a series of forms, we must use a variable, because the concept 'term of that series of forms' is a formal concept. To ask whether a formal concept exists is nonsensical.

Ancient Psychoactive Incense and Preparations For millennia, humankind has lived with nature, utilizing the flora and fauna to survive. Over the centuries, through trial and error, they learned which plants were the most nutritious, healthy and beneficial, and consequently which plants possessed unique healing, spiritual and magical properties. Early in antiquity, humankind discovered the healing properties and magical qualities of plants like Papaver somniferum, Cannabis sativa and fungi like Amanita muscaria. In addition to directly consuming these magical healing plant, ancient peoples also discovered that many plants possess psychoactive properties when they are burned and used them as part of their sacred ceremonies. Over time and after many trials people discovered that potent incenses could be made by combining several different plants, resins, barks and roots and that they could enhance their effects by utilizing special breathing techniques to help trigger or intensify trance states.

PhiloSURFical | Home Edgar Cayce on human origins People usually demand a beginning, so in the beginning there was a sea of spirit and it filled all of space. The spirit was static, content, and aware of itself. It was a giant resting on the bosom of its thought and contemplating what it is. Then the spirit moved into action. It withdrew into itself until all of space was empty. In the center, the restless mind of the spirit shone. God desired self-expression and desired companionship; therefore, God projected the cosmos and souls. Each design carried within it the plan for its evolution - both physical and spiritual. All things are a part of God and an expression of God's thought. All things, including the souls of individuals, were created as "fractals" of God for companionship with God - the "Whole." The pattern God used to create souls was the pattern of God's own Spirit. The spirit of the individual existed before the soul of the individual was created. But these things could happen. Our solar system also attracted souls.

First Flight : Knowledge Media Institute : The Open University Air flows over and under the wings of an aeroplane as it moves. The wings are designed to make the air travelling over the top surface move faster than the air moving under the wing, and this has the effect of lifting the wing up. The shape of a wing viewed from the side is known as an aerofoil (or airfoil), and the angle between the aerofoil and the direction in which the plane is moving is described as the angle of attack. Changing the angle of attack alters the amount of lift produced by the wing and can also affect the pilot's control of the plane. If the angle is increased too much then the wing stalls, and the plane is likely to crash. Otto Lilienthal, one of the early flight pioneers, had been killed when his glider stalled after being hit by a gust of wind. Wright Brothers test glider of 1900 after an accident The next section is concerned with the way that air moves around an aerofoil, and what happens when it stops flowing smoothly more...
