Entirely by Gary Vey (viewzone.com), After writing several articles on reincarnation and enlightenment, many readers asked me why I never mentioned the significance of the pineal gland -- a small structure about the size of a pea, located in the middle of the brain. Descartes was obsessed with understanding who we are. He observed that the senses can be fooled, that most of what we think we know is really illusion and finally struggled with the possibility that our own identity as individuals was also not real. His famous statement endures: Cogno ergo sum -- I think, therefore I am. Although the soul is joined with the entire body, there is one part of the body [the pineal] in which it exercises its function more than elsewhere... Today, with an understanding of computers, we might take issue with Descartes. Brain Sand

Types of Dementia Prevention Late Stage Remove Toxic Heavy Metals from the Body in 5 - 7 Hours By Gavin Bragg Guest Writer for Wake Up World The safe removal of heavy metals is becoming one of the modern world’s greatest health issues. Heavy metals surround us; chemtrails, vaccinations, air, water and food, pollution, living or working near a smelter or mine, dental fillings and of course, the kingpin of all, fluoridated water. Hydrofluosilicic acid, the chemical often used to fluoridate drinking water, is an industrial waste that contains lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, benzene and radioactive waste material. A fact that boggles the mind and poses the question… How did we let this end up in our water? Heavy metals poisoning “In my clinical experience, everyone has excessive amounts of some, or all of the toxic metals” says Lawrence Wilson, MD. No one in the industrial world is untouched, and the effects of heavy metals are nothing short of frightening, with links to impaired brain and motor function, Alzheimer’s, dementia, heart disease and genetic defects.
Open Online Courses: Higher Education of the Future? - Techonomy By Eric Rabkin One instructor’s firsthand look behind the scenes of the movement offering online education to the masses. I am “teaching” a MOOC, one of those massive, open, online courses through which Coursera and, more recently, edX offer people around the globe challenging learning experiences through a simple internet connection: video mini-lectures, machine-graded problem sets in some courses, peer-evaluated essays in others, discussion boards, and more. I would guess that in forty-two years of on-campus teaching at the University of Michigan I have worked with between 12,000 and 20,000 students. As soon as most humanities colleagues hear about this course, their first response is, “Good luck grading all those essays.” Coursera co-founder Daphne Koller reports in her TED lecture on MOOCs that, with this many students, when an issue is raised on a forum, the mean time to someone else on the forum contributing a useful response is 22 minutes. These people also educate me.

Cash-only doctors abandon the insurance system - Jun. 11, 2013 Fed up with red tape and high overhead, a growing number of doctors like Dr. Doug Nunamaker, pictured here, have switched to a cash-only payment system. NEW YORK (CNNMoney) Some doctors who have gone that route love it, saying they can spend more time with and provide higher-quality care to their patients. Health advocates are skeptical, worrying that only the wealthy will benefit from this system. In Wichita, Kan., 32-year old family physician Doug Nunamaker switched to a cash-only basis in 2010 after taking insurance for five years. Under the traditional health insurance system, a large staff was required just to navigate all the paperwork, he said. "The paperwork, the hassles, it just got to be overwhelming," Nunamaker said. Related: The Massachusetts (health care) experiment So Nunamaker and his partner set up a membership-based practice called Atlas M.D. -- a nod to free-market champion Ayn Rand's book Atlas Shrugged. The fee varies depending on age.

Smokers or past smokers: Six ways to cleanse and revitalize your lungs Share by PF Louis – Natural News It’s been observed that even former smokers who quit years ago have traces of lung damage. Even if one has never smoked, second hand cigarette smoke, industrial pollution, vehicular exhaust fumes and now chemtrails with downward drifting heavy metal nano-particles all contribute to some level of lung damage for almost everyone. So whether you once smoked or never puffed on chemical-laden, radioactive (from the fertilizer) tobacco, detoxing and regenerating lung tissue may still be appropriate for you. By the way, the notion that lung damage is irreparable is not true. (1) Lifestyle changes are in order as a foundation for any recommended remedies to have significant and lasting effects.
