The Unreal Universe

The Unreal Universe
Reality, as we sense it, is not quite real. The stars we see in the night sky, for instance, are not really there. They may have moved or even died by the time we get to see them. This unreality is due to the time it takes for light from the distant stars and galaxies to reach us. We know of this delay. Even the sun that we know so well is already eight minutes old by the time we see it. What is surprising (and seldom highlighted) is that when it comes to sensing motion, we cannot back-calculate in the same kind of way as we can to correct for the delay in observation of the sun. Einstein chose to resolve the problem by treating perception as distorted and inventing new fundamental properties in the arena of physics - in the description of space and time. Einstein instead redefined simultaneity by using the instants in time we detect the event. Special Relativity gives an unambiguous answer to this question. This disconnect is not uncommon in philosophical schools of thought. Related:  in between two worlds

Energy Reality: The Soul/Causal Body - in recognition that matter is energy and that many higher levels of energy exist in reality. By changing energy, miracles occur.

5 Lovable Animals You Didn't Know Are Secretly Terrifying If there’s two things Cracked is all about, it’s fucked up animals and dongs. And since they won’t let me write “The 7 Most Fucked Up Animal Dongs,” (Editor's Note: Only because it's been written already) I had to settle for focusing on just the animal stuff. So hey, here you go: Here’s a bunch of adorable animals that will probably nonetheless scar you for life. Bears are pretty intrinsically scary, but come on – look at that guy! Holy shit! If there was a color-coded scale for cuteness like there is for Terror Alert Levels, the red fox would be at Level Orange: way above Adorable Bomb Threat and just half a notch below Snuggle Jihad. I would name him Mr. Now, here’s the sound he makes: If you came of age in a small town, you’re probably already familiar with the sound red foxes make. You: Jesus, this weed is amazing. Your Dickhead Friend Barry: Ha! Red Fox:AWWAAUUUUGHHGGGHHHH!!!! Your Dickhead Friend Barry: What was what? You: Don’t "what was what?" You: There’s a fox raping a baby? Oh!

An Essay by Einstein -- The World As I See It "How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people -- first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy. A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving... "I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. "My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities.

The Unreal Universe | A Book on Perception, Physics and Philosophy Classroom Wars - July 27 Classroom WarsA middle-school history teacher on the seductive stories of mankind's battles. History teachers love war. Our classes are filled with it. The Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War II, Vietnam War are musts. Others we shove into the second tier: 1812, Mexican, Spanish-American, World War I, Korea. To millions of students, U.S. history ends up being — to modify the oft-repeated dictum — the story of one damned war after another. History students love war, too. So as a teacher of history, as a teacher of wars, imagine the knotting of stomach and tightening of chest that occurred when I encountered, seven years late, Drew Gilpin Faust’s article ‘“We should grow too fond of it’: why we love the Civil War.” War is, by its very definition, a story. But surely historians aren’t the only ones at fault here. By structuring curriculum in certain ways, we shape the next generation’s perception of past reality. For many of my students, war is a video game, war is a Hollywood movie.

Are Higher Vibrations Making You Sick? Integrating the Energetic Shift By Nanice Ellis Contributing Writer for Wake Up World Have you considered that an illness or emotional issue may be the result of an energetic overload? It is no secret that human consciousness and the consciousness of the planet are going through monumental shifts. Many of these shifts are a result of an influx of a higher frequency energy coming into our planet and especially flowing into each one of us. You might say that the evolution of humanity is a transformation of energy. This higher vibration energy will ultimately help us to heal many of the issues that we are now experiencing in our lives and in the world, but this energy is also responsible for creating other challenges that we may also be facing. There are many explanations of this influx of higher vibration energy, and why it is coming now. Integrating the Higher Vibration In order for your body to easily and effortlessly process this higher vibration energy, two things are required: 1. 2. The body does not lie. Breathe Nature

10 Ways Our Minds Warp Time How time perception is warped by life-threatening situations, eye movements, tiredness, hypnosis, age, the emotions and more… The mind does funny things to our experience of time. Just ask French cave expert Michel Siffre. In 1962 Siffre went to live in a cave that was completely isolated from mechanical clocks and natural light. When he tried to measure out two minutes by counting up to 120 at one-second intervals, it took him 5 minutes. But you don’t have to hide out in a cave for a couple of months to warp time, it happens to us all the time. 1. People often report that time seems to slow down in life-threatening situations, like skydiving. But are we really processing more information in these seconds when time seems to stretch? To test this, Stetson et al. (2007) had people staring at a special chronometer while free-falling 50 metres into a net. 2. We’ve all experienced the fact that time seems to fly when we’re having fun. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Time is relative
