Space Zen: Will Humans' Brains Change During Travel in Outer Space? -A Galaxy Insight

Space Zen: Will Humans' Brains Change During Travel in Outer Space? -A Galaxy Insight
In February, 1971, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell experienced the little understood phenomenon sometimes called the “Overview Effect”. He describes being completely engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness. Without warning, he says, a feeing of bliss, timelessness, and connectedness began to overwhelm him. Rusty Schweikart experienced it on March 6th 1969 during a spacewalk outside his Apollo 9 vehicle: “When you go around the Earth in an hour and a half, you begin to recognize that your identity is with that whole thing. Their experiences, along with dozens of other similar experiences described by other astronauts, intrigue scientists who study the brain. Andy Newberg, a neuroscientist/physician with a background in spacemedicine, is learning how to identify the markers of someone who hasexperienced space travel. Newberg's first test subject will not be an astronaut, but rather a civilian. “We had not had, in science, a definition of consciousness.

Are We Really All Made of Stars? | Cosmos, Moby’s Song ‘We Are All Made of Stars’, Universe & Solar System | Life's Little Mysteries The theory that everyone and everything on Earth contains minuscule star particles dates back further than Moby's popular 2002 song "We Are All Made of Stars." In the early 1980s, astronomer Carl Sagan hosted and narrated a 13-part television series called "Cosmos" that aired on PBS. On the show, Sagan thoroughly explained many science-related topics, including Earth's history, evolution, the origin of life and the solar system. "We are a way for the universe to know itself. His statement sums up the fact that the carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in our bodies, as well as atoms of all other heavy elements, were created in previous generations of stars over 4.5 billion years ago. "All organic matter containing carbon was produced originally in stars," Impey told Life's Little Mysteries. How star stuff got to Earth When it has exhausted its supply of hydrogen, it can die in a violent explostion, called a nova. "It's a well-tested theory," Impey said. Cosmic connections Got a question?

Nibiru's Orbit, The Red Star of Bethlehem, Sonic Levitation, Ancient Wisdom by David Millo Articles by David Millo All Articles Copyright 2002 by David Millo, Copyright 2002 The Red Star of Bethlehem by David Millo "We have seen his star appear in the first rays of dawn... and lo, the star which they had seen in the east, went on before them, until it came and stood over where the child was." This bible narrative from Matthew recounts the actions of ancient astronomers - Wise Men. With the first rays of dawn on February 1, 4 BC that star appeared. Mars had an Arean association to the Babylonians. Auspiciously, Mars' retrograde motion made it appear to stand still for some 5 days centered on the spring equinox. Antares becomes visible in the southeastern sky about mid-spring to observers in the northern hemisphere. The apostle Paul expounded on the 'UNKNOWN GOD'S" altar to the Athenians on Mars Hill (Acts 17:22-31). This 2003 opposition will be 56 million km. away. Mars is the god of war.

Sacred Geometry: Flower of Life Sacred Geometry - Flower of Life By Andrew Monkman I believe the complete ancient flower of life is an inter-dimensional tool, a portal, a stargate, a window into what some call the inter space plains. The original flower of life (found on several pillars within "the Osireion" at abydos in Egypt) is incomplete, because it is only the first layer of three (pic1+2). 1. The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt. 2. The complete flower has the other two layers added, making it three dimensional (pic3). 3. What appears is a reptilian entity. Flower of Life - Beijing, China The second being is the Chinese dragon ( the fu dog). You may know that the complete flower contains the kabbalah`s tree of life, the fruit, the egg and the seed of life (pic. 4 & 5). 4. 5. The complete flower also contains the three dimensional metatron cube (pic6), which holds all the Platonic solids (pic7). 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. I was born and bred and now live back in Kirkwall. 12. 13. 14. 15. Update - June 2011 Dance of the Planets

THE HEXAGON SOLSTICE KIVA Dr. Chris Hardaker Dr. Colette M. Dowell Dr. Robert M. Schoch Hexagon, Solstice, Kiva,- Chris Hardaker - A review of geometric design types found in Chaco Canyon kivas, a rather remarkable coincidence between design and astronomy is discussed.

The Hexagon and the Solstice After a review of geometric design types found in Chaco Canyon kivas, a rather remarkable coincidence between design and astronomy is discussed. Walking among the ruins or gazing at photographs of the pueblos in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, you will notice the interplay of squares and circles. [[Figure 1. What was the nature of this represented opposition? [[ Figure 2. Meaning is a tricky thing for archaeologists since we have no one to talk to, and the native inheritors of the Anasazi territory may have their own ideas. 3. [ Figure 3. Figure 6.

Exploring the UVG Grid with Google Earth Basic Instructions for Exploring the UVG Grid with Google Earth Bethe Hagens Nazca The basic Google Earth program is available for PC and Mac—free! SETTING UP THE UVG “UVG-grid-compiled-by-B-Hagens.kmz” FILE In the upper left corner of the Google Earth screen, click File. You can view the UVG Grid in many ways. If you go into the folder titled “Regular Geometric Solids,’ you can see subfolders and can look at (or hide) all of the different geometric figures and great circles that make up the UVG Grid. Every line of the UVG is part of a great circle (equator) that divides the sphere of Earth in half. Bill Becker, with whom I worked closely on this project for 12 years from 1981 until 1993, was a colleague of Buckminster Fuller. COLOR CODING The vertices (corners) of all five Platonic Solids—and two other diamond-faced regular figures, the rhombic triacontahedron and rhombic dodecahedron—align with the 62 grid points (“corners’) of the Basic UVG Grid (a “spherical’ hexakis icosahedron).

'Something may come through' dimensional 'doors' at LHC High performance access to file storage A top boffin at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) says that the titanic machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific phenomena, or "unknown unknowns" - for instance "an extra dimension". "Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters including the Reg at CERN HQ earlier this week. The LHC, built inside a 27-km circular subterranean tunnel deep beneath the Franco-Swiss border outside Geneva, functions like a sort of orbital motorway for extremely high-speed hadrons - typically either protons or lead ions. The differences are, firstly, that the streams of particles are moving at velocities within a whisker of light speed - such that each stream has as much energy in it as a normal car going at 1000mph. Obviously all that's utter rubbish.

Through The Wormhole: Are There Parallel Universes? | Documentary Since the ancient Greeks first speculated that everything they observed in reality was the result of the interaction of tiny particles they called atoms, great thinkers have tried to find a single mathematical formula that governs and explains the workings of the entire universe. So far, though, even minds as brilliant as physicists Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking have been unable to come up with that single grand equation of everything, also known as the theory of everything, or the final theory. Nevertheless, they continue to try, because without that final piece of the puzzle that is reality, the sum total of what we know falls a bit short of making sense. Perhaps the most illustrious searcher for the equation of everything was physicist Albert Einstein, who spent the last 35 years of his life trying to uncover such an overarching explanation.

Alien Civilizations in Universe Introduction This calculation is just a rough one because galaxies vary a lot. There are also things called globular clusters that can contain hundreds of thousands of stars. I will be talking about type 0, type 1, type 2 and type 3 civilizations here. Kardashev scale civilizations, type 0,1,2,3 civilizations and beyond Shortened link to video: ⊗ Kardashev scale civilizations, type 0,1,2,3 civilizations and beyond [our possible future, video + music]: The Number of Civilizations in Our Galaxy & the Universe To calculate the numbers of advanced alien civilizations in a galaxy that want to communicate with us we use a thing called the Drake Equation. I have seen a few worrying directions to the Fermi Paradox. In one scenario if we discover life on other planets in our solar system it would be bad news for up since it means a “filter” (of extinction) lies ahead of us. I don’t agree with either of these ideas. ☉ Quick snap shot of the life cycle of our sun Summary

Alien City Lights Could Signal E.T. Planets | Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence & Civilizations | Artificial Lights on Alien Planets Astronauts in orbit around the Earth often gaze down on a world lit at night by city lights. Now researchers suggest that scientists could detect alien civilizations from similarly bright lights. Science fiction has long imagined entire planets covered with cities. Assuming that aliens need light to see at night much as we do, theoretical astrophysicist Abraham Loeb at Harvard University and astronomer Edwin Turner at Princeton University reasoned that extraterrestrial civilizations would switch on city lights during the hours of darkness on their world. "Both Ed and I were attending a conference in Abu Dhabi about novel ways to detect life, and we had a tour guide on a trip to the nearby emirate of Dubai who bragged that it was so bright at night that you could see it easily from space — that's what gave us the idea," Loeb told Astrobiology Magazine. Decline of radio Outer solar system searches "There are other things we could discover from such a search," Loeb said.

Is NASA Covering Up the 100-Year Starship? - NASA appears to be debating a way to permanently colonize another planet, boldly going where no one has ever gone -- and where no one could come back, some fear.Paramount A NASA official may have made a 35-million-mile slip of the tongue. The director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California casually let slip mention of the 100-Year Starship recently, a new program funded by the super-secret government agency, DARPA. In a talk at San Francisco's Long Conversation conference, Simon “Pete” Worden said DARPA has $1M to spend, plus another $100,000 from NASA itself, for the program, which will initially develop a new kind of propulsion engine that will take us to Mars or beyond. There's only one problem: The astronauts won't come back. The 100-year ship would leave Earth with the intention of colonizing a planet, but it would likely be a one-way trip because of the time it takes to travel 35 million miles. But what is the Hundred Year Starship? Dr.
