How Do Human Beings Perceive Reality and What Does it Matter? We are an infant race of seven billion separated by different belief systems of how the planet operates. Imagine a race united in their knowing rather than divided by their belief systems. At the same time we all perceive our physical reality to be the same. By simply perceiving ‘how the world is’, we are simultaneously creating it. If you really think about it, we take a child from a young age and pound them with our version of reality. Many of us have been programmed to believe that it’s a a dog eat dog world, that it’s every man for himself. We literally, scientifically have the ability to manifest any type of reality we desire given the type of energy we all emanate.

World’s First Perpetual Motion Machine? | Can this machine operate forever? Since at least the 12th century, man has sought to create a perpetual motion machine; a device that would continue working indefinitely without any external source of energy. A large scientific contingent thinks such a device would violate the laws of thermodynamics, and is thus impossible. Could it be that as a race, we don’t fully understand the laws of physics and such a device may indeed be possible? Norwegian artist and mathematician Reidar Finsrud is an outside the box thinker that has devised a machine that he believes achieves true perpetual motion. The dream is that if we’re able to produce perpetual motion machines, that we’d have tapped into the holy grail of sustainability: an infinite energy source. A device that requires no input to run that could be affixed to a generator would harvest free energy to power whatever we so pleased. What are your thoughts? Source: Finsrud Comments comments

Physicists Prove Classical Music Inhabits Separate Realm, Inaccessible To Humans GENEVA—Physicists affiliated with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) released a report Wednesday revealing that classical music exists in a field of reality entirely removed from the four-dimensional spacetime inhabited by human beings. Scientists were performing a routine search for fifth-dimensional activity using the Large Hadron Collider, the immense particle accelerator famous for proving the existence of the Higgs Boson, when they came across the entire corpus of Western classical music from 9th-century plainchant to Nico Muhly. According to the report, the innumerable works making up this body of repertoire exist in a continuum that resides just beyond the limits of human perception. “Classical music transcends both the linear, forward flow of time and the Euclidean space we are used to,” said Rolf-Dieter Heuer, the director general of CERN. “Think about Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.

Physicists Achieve Quantum Teleportation of Photon Over 25 Kilometers For the first time, a team of physicists have successfully teleported a quantum state of a photon to a crystal over 25 kilometers away through a fiber optic cable. This effectively showed that the photon’s quantum state, not its composition, is important to the teleportation process. The team was led by Nicolas Gisin of the University of Geneva and the results were published in the journal Nature Photonics. The quantum state of the photon is able to preserve information under extreme conditions, including the difference between traveling as light or becoming stored in the crystal like matter. To test this and ensure what they were observing was actually happening, one photon was stored in a crystal while the other was sent along optical fiber, over a distance of 25 kilometers. The photon did not physically “teleport” as we are used to hearing about in science fiction, where someone’s body can moved from place to place in a matter of seconds.

New Research Proves Humans Have A Magnetic Sixth Sense Everything in this universe is fundamentally made of energy. The atoms that make up physicality, at the core, are vibrating geometries that are energetic structures. So is it possible to detect electromagnetic fields around the Earth? They align themselves with the Earth’s magnetic field which allows them to understand the difference between north, south, east and west. Well, it is! The geophysicist Joe Kirschvink at the California Institute of Technology recently showed the results of this study. He says he has produced clear evidence that humans do in fact have functioning magnetoreceptors. Magnetoreception is the sense which allows a being to detect a magnetic field, letting it perceive direction, altitude or location. Kirschvink suspects that most modern mammals have had this ability passed down from their ancestors. Researchers haven’t found any biological component that could act as a magnetoreptor for us.

Hawking Radiation Recreated In A Laboratory A researcher claims to have produced a simulation of Hawking radiation, which if true will give physicists the chance to test one of Stephen Hawking's most significant predictions. In 1974, Hawking upended ideas about black holes with his theory that just outside the event horizon, particle-antiparticle pairs should appear as a result of the black hole's gravitational field. One of these would be drawn into the hole, but the other escape. Hawking's equations have won widespread support from physicists, and are a major contributor to his reputation. Now Professor Jeff Steinhauer of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology claims to be getting close. The fluctuations occur in pairs, modelling the particle-antiparticle pairs appearing around a black hole. In Nature, Steinhauer reported, “the observation of Hawking radiation emitted by this black-hole analogue.” Cowen notes that it is still unclear how well Steinhauer's creation models a real black hole.

What It Means To ‘Sense’ A Situation Vs Just Thinking About It – Collective Evolution We're creating a positive news network. We need your help. This article focuses on the difference between sensing rather than thinking about or understanding messages in our lives. What difference does it make if we meet a person and sense what the person says instead of understanding it? Will we perceive the message differently? This type of sensing is ‘holistic sensing:’ using all our senses and our whole nervous system combined with our intuition. The main reason to sense instead of merely understand is that by sensing we perceive so much more. I have something to say about this topic because of my own experiences. In 2003, I started to have breakdowns, and in 2008 after three of them, I read Elaine N. This exploration has provided me with so many answers that today I have only a tiny pressure from this emotional energy of desire and hunger left inside me (I still have pressure from other emotional energies, but this one has almost lost all of its power).

When Parallel Worlds Collide . . . Quantum Mechanics Is Born Parallel universes – worlds where the dinosaur-killing asteroid never hit, or where Australia was colonised by the Portuguese – are a staple of science fiction. But are they real? In a radical paper published this week in Physical Review X, we (Dr Michael Hall and I from Griffith University and Dr Dirk-André Deckert from the University of California) propose not only that parallel universes are real, but that they are not quite parallel – they can “collide”. In our theory, the interaction between nearby worlds is the source of all of the bizarre features of quantum mechanics that are revealed by experiment. Many worlds in existing interpretations The existence of parallel worlds in quantum mechanics is not a new idea in itself – they are a feature of one of the leading interpretations of quantum mechanics, the 1957 “many worlds interpretation” (MWI). First, its formalism is extremely remote from everyday experience. Heads or tails? Many interacting worlds Implications and applications

Your brain does not process information and it is not a computer | Aeon Essays No matter how hard they try, brain scientists and cognitive psychologists will never find a copy of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony in the brain – or copies of words, pictures, grammatical rules or any other kinds of environmental stimuli. The human brain isn’t really empty, of course. But it does not contain most of the things people think it does – not even simple things such as ‘memories’. Our shoddy thinking about the brain has deep historical roots, but the invention of computers in the 1940s got us especially confused. To see how vacuous this idea is, consider the brains of babies. A healthy newborn is also equipped with more than a dozen reflexes – ready-made reactions to certain stimuli that are important for its survival. Senses, reflexes and learning mechanisms – this is what we start with, and it is quite a lot, when you think about it. We don’t store words or the rules that tell us how to manipulate them. Humans, on the other hand, do not – never did, never will.

Researchers at Brown University shattered an electron wave function A team of physicists based at Brown University has succeeded in shattering a quantum wave function. That near-mythical representation of indeterminate reality, in which an unmeasured particle is able to occupy many states simultaneously, can be dissected into many parts. This dissection, which is described this week in the Journal of Low Temperature Physics, has the potential to turn how we view the quantum world on its head. When we say some element of the quantum world occupies many states at once, what’s really being referred to is the element’s wave function. A wave function can be viewed as a space occupied simultaneously by many different possibilities or degrees of freedom. If a particle could be in position (x,y,z) in three-dimensional space, there are probabilities that it could specifically be at (x1,y1,z1) or (x2,y2,z2) and so forth, and this is represented in the wave function, which is all of these possibilities added together.

Scientists say your “mind” isn’t confined to your brain, or even your body - Ideapod Did you know that your mind and your brain aren’t the same thing? According to scientists, the mind may be linked to the brain, but it can exist beyond it, and even beyond our bodies. If that feels like a big pill to swallow, don’t worry, there’s a perfectly good explanation surrounding why scientists think this way. So, what is a “mind?” A mind is defined as consciousness, or the core of your being. Sure, it originates in the brain, but the actions come from the functioning mind, which is considered separate from the brain. The brain is the engine and the mind is the gasoline making the brain work. Can the mind exist outside the brain? A psychiatry professor at UCLA School of Medicine, Dan Siegel, published a book called Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human, and in it he describes the mind as something that can live outside of our physical being. The mind is like math

Scientists Discover a Jewel at the Heart of Quantum Physics Physicists reported this week the discovery of a jewel-like geometric object that dramatically simplifies calculations of particle interactions and challenges the notion that space and time are fundamental components of reality. “This is completely new and very much simpler than anything that has been done before,” said Andrew Hodges, a mathematical physicist at Oxford University who has been following the work. The revelation that particle interactions, the most basic events in nature, may be consequences of geometry significantly advances a decades-long effort to reformulate quantum field theory, the body of laws describing elementary particles and their interactions. “The degree of efficiency is mind-boggling,” said Jacob Bourjaily, a theoretical physicist at Harvard University and an author of the first of two papers detailing the new idea. Locality is the notion that particles can interact only from adjoining positions in space and time.

Patti Smith describes feeling 'like a 7yo' as stage fright takes hold at Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize ceremony Updated Media player: "Space" to play, "M" to mute, "left" and "right" to seek. Error loading player: No playable sources found Video: Patti Smith on how she copes with death. Despite being one of the music industry's most enduring artists, Patti Smith says it is never too late in your career to learn a lesson or two in the value of failure. In December, the 70-year-old Godmother of Punk suffered a crippling bout of stage fright while singing at the Nobel Prize ceremony in Sweden. She paused in the second verse of laureate Bob Dylan's A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall — too overwhelmed to find the words — and asked to begin the section again. "I felt like a seven-year-old — I really wanted to run away," she told 7.30. Instead of running, she finished the song as Nobel attendees wiped their eyes and showered her in applause. Now, four months on, the once "humiliating sting of failure" seems more a blessing in disguise. "Not to see me in a bad position but to be able to connect in a very human moment.

Quantum Effects in Biology | Controlled Quantum Dynamics Group Biologists do not take a quantum physics course during their studies because so far they were able to make sense of biological phenomena without using the counterintuitive laws of physics that govern the atomic scale. However, in recent years progress in experimental technology has revealed that quantum phenomena are relevant for fundamental biological processes such as photosynthesis, magneto-reception and olfaction. We have helped to initiate the development of this research field and are now working to discover how nature is harnessing quantum dynamics to optimize biological function. S.F. Environment assisted quantum bio-dynamics: It is remarkable that quantum phenomena can play a role in warm, wet and noisy biological systems. Environment assisted quantum bio-dynamics: Biological environments are not creating white noise but do actually possess considerable structure. J.M.
