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 worldsreliable

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!

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

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes “Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. The first players up are: a few Russet potatoes (I’m sure other varieties will work equally as well), Parmigiano-Reggiano and butter. Start by scrubbing your potatoes good and clean. Then, using a sharp knife, make slices across the potato, being sure to stop before you reach its bottom. Cut up your butter. Then do the same with the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Next, open the potatoes’ crevices and shove the parmesan and butter, alternating between the two. After they’re stuffed with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano, you want to bake them at 400ºF for about 45 minutes to an hour. When they’re done baking, you’re still a few minutes away from cheesy gloriousness! They’ll come out looking all cheesy and inviting.

Lataif – Chakras In Esoteric Islam | The Seven Minds Lataif-as-Sitta (“the six subtleties”, singular: latifa) are psychospiritual “organs” or, sometimes, faculties of sensory and suprasensory perception in Sufi psychology. They are thought to be parts of the self in a similar manner to the way glands and organs are part of the body. Drawing from the Qur’an, many Sufis distinguish Nafs, Qalb, Sirr, Ruh, Khafi, and Akhfa as the six lataif. Similar concepts in other spiritual systems include the Dantian mentioned in Chinese traditional medicine, martial arts and meditation, the sephiroth of Kabbalah, and the chakras of Indian Tantra and Kundalini yoga. Among Sufis development involves awakening spiritual centers of perception that lie dormant in every person. The help of a guide is considered necessary to help activate them in a certain order. The ten lata’if According to Shaikh Ahmed Sirhindi, humans are made of ten Lata’if or components of creation. However there are seven lata’if in most of the sufi orders.
