First 3D Map of the Brain’s Connections We knew anatomy could be gorgeous, but this is beyond anything else we’ve ever seen, and it’s guaranteed to be something you haven’t seen, being the first 3D image of a brain’s connections. Van Wedeen, a Harvard radiology professor, is awestruck: “We’ve never really seen the brain – it’s been hiding in plain sight.” Conventional scanning has offered us a crude glimpse, but scientists such as Wedeen aim to produce the first ever three-dimensional map of all its neurons. They call this circuit diagram the “connectome”, and it could help us better understand everything from imagination and language to the miswirings that cause mental illness. Photographed above is the 3D image of an owl-monkey’s brain. Link [via] Ariel Phenomenon | John E. Mack Institute 16 Apr 2008 Stephen Coan, The Witness American film maker Randall Nickerson is currently visiting southern Africa to make a documentary that follows up an incident that happened at the Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, in 1994, when 62 children aged between eight and 12 reported seeing a UFO and “strange beings” during their morning break. Those children are now young adults scattered around the globe. Nickerson is tracking them down and interviewing them about the experience. “Their stories have not changed at all,” he says. “Not what you would expect if they had made it all up.” So what exactly happened on that day in 1994 at the school in Ruwa just east of Harare? “They ran to the edge of the school yard to see what this thing was. “The children had direct eye contact with this creature. “They all went screaming back to the teachers. Soon afterwards the children were asked to draw pictures of what they had seen. A BBC television crew were first on the scene to follow it up.

‘Mummified Alien’ Discovered In Russia Proves Extraterrestrial Life, UFO Conspiracy Theorists Say [Photos/Video] The alien and UFO conspiracy theory blogosphere is revisiting the famous case of the missing body of Alyoshenka (Aleshenka), also known as the Kyshtym Alien or Kyshtym Dwarf, a mysterious, diminutive humanoid corpse found in May 1996 in rural Kaolinovy, near Kyshtym in the Chelyabinsk Oblast, but which later went missing mysteriously. While conspiracy theorists claim that detailed expert autopsy reports, surviving photos, and videos (see below) give definitive proof that the alleged “alien body” was of extraterrestrial origins, skeptics insist that rumors of autopsy reports proving Alyoshenka was non-human were urban legend and that, on the contrary, reports from official sources proved the mummified corpse was a human female fetus born prematurely with severe deformities. But conspiracy theorists allege there were belated efforts by the Russian authorities to cover up the truth about the body. Police sent the alien corpse to local experts for study.

9 Key Components of the Shift to Higher Consciousness This article originally appeared in WakingTimes.com. Facing considerable political, economic, social and ecological crises, the human race is desperate for a transformation and a new direction. Business as usual ensures that we are doomed to run a course of half-conscious self-destruction, as man-made catastrophes multiply and stress mounts in every aspect of life. We must overthrow our ignorance, as it has become a fearful master, goading us into war, pollution, waste and exploitation. The social problems and entrenched patterns at the source of global issues are too vast and complex to be solved at the personal level, yet, paradoxically, the personal transformation of the individual offers a lonesome opportunity to avert the catastrophes we are engineering for ourselves. The shift. Personal evolution is both the great duty and the great joy of all human beings and is a process of divine significance, frequently unfolding in overlapping stages and related developments. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
UFO Researchers: 82 Alien Species Are Currently In Contact With Earth — And At Least Four Are Fighting For Control Over Earth A three-part video (see below) purports to set aside the confusing New Age mumbo-jumbo in favor of the testimony of highly reliable whistleblower sources of information about the known extraterrestrial species visiting Earth. Information about alien species visiting Earth comes from a variety of sources. The first sources are alien abductees and contactees. The second sources are whistleblowers, including former military personnel, intelligence officials, and government scientists or employees. Although the public is often skeptical about the testimonies of alien abductees and contactees, members of the New Age movement and paranormal enthusiasts insist that their reliability has been demonstrated by scientific investigators such as neurologists, hypnotists, and psychologists. Alien conspiracy theorists rank Hellyer among the most reputable and reliable sources of information about extraterrestrial species that are allegedly in contact with Earth. [Image via Shutterstock]
New Obama Advisor John Podesta An Advocate For UFO Disclosure For all of you who hope the U.S. government will lift the veil on its alleged stockpile of evidence that Earth is being visited by extraterrestrials -- take heart. This week, former Clinton chief of staff and UFO advocate John Podesta was named as President Obama's newest advisor. Podesta, 64, has more than once publicly urged the U.S. government to release any UFO files that could help scientists determine "the real nature of this phenomenon." Podesta's stance on UFOs can be seen in the following video clip from the 2009 James Fox film, "I Know What I Saw." Adding more fuel to the fire, Podesta wrote the foreword to Leslie Kean's 2010 New York Times bestseller, "UFOs: Generals, Pilots, And Government Officials Go On The Record": I'm skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can't be trusted with the truth. On Tuesday, Time Magazine listed five topics that Podesta and Obama haven't previously agreed on: Also on HuffPost:
DRACONIANS Commentary from Dan Winter: The politics of the interventionist Draco trading colonies (see Dune - whose Arrakeis - the home star of Dracos and Dune - is correctly located in Alpha Draconis) - definitely became represented by Enlil / Yahweh / Michael side of the An - Annunaki family. Also should be seen as the roots of insurance and banking on Earth. The templar followers of the MAG (draco matriliny) line are often credited with 'inventing' insurance and banking for the west. This is absurd - since they had already installed such industry - so close to fear and extortion - to HARVEST COLONIES on hundreds of planets. The "skull and bones" - Orion- origins of the Piracy and Extortion story is an example of insurance and banking that loses its public relations budget. More on the skull of the Mag below. The Reptilian Agenda The Reptilian agenda was, and is, to seek out the human refugees for destruction or assimilation, and to use their blood and hormones for sustenance. Conflict & Creation
Internet Sacred Text Archive Home The Greys extracted from Matrix II Since the primary species involved is that of the Greys, we will concentrate on that species. Over the last several years , researchers have unearthed plenty of evidence that: The United States made one or more agreements with a species described as the tall Greys, and has agreed not to interfere with alien operational plans in trade for technology. It has become apparent that abductees are also being trained on alien equipment for some future time. Note: When one of the Greys dies, its implant serves as a focusing device for retrieval of the body. Grey Objectives Their religion, as it were, is science. They appear to divide this into physical, spiritual and sociological objectives in terms of planets they invade and dominate, as they have dominated Earth for thousands of years. They accomplish this by taking out the leaders and replacing them with entities they can control. The presence of the Greys is not a new phenomenon. Military Operations Reproduction Processes
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. 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. Thus, new individuals issued from God and remained dependent upon God; but individuals were also aware of an existence apart from God. But these things could happen.
