Is it real? - Does it work?It's hard now days to get reliable information. This at the height of Earth's most recent information age. I'm sick of lies. I'm sick of people telling stories as fact. Ever try to get information on being a human in regard to the Universe? We're humans. We're Earth people. We're people of a Universe. What do we know about the Universe?
Does every earthling know what the two most common "things" in the Universe are? The two most prevalent elements are Electromagnetism and Plasma.
Every plant on the planet uses photosynthesis. Why would we not copy that for our energy needs?
Consider this: Around 200,000 years ago, the hominid known as Homo Erectus suddenly transformed itself into Homo Sapien with a 50 per cent increase in brain size, together with language capability and a modern anatomy. How could this have happened so suddenly after 1.2 million years of no progress at all? Alan F. Alford
I caught a glimpse of this Sunday Morning's coverage of this years presidential race. I didn't here one single fact based idea. I didn't hear one thing different than I heard last year and the year before and those things are no more real today than they were when they first rolled of the speach writers pen. The whole of politics is public nonsense covering private deal making.
We've got to the point now where we are told what's important. Do people not know what's important? If it's important to me does it need to be important to you?
How much electricity is there in, on and around the Earth? Why don't we use it? Every bolt of lightening is free electricity. Lightening contains enough electricity to run every system on the planet. Enough to run the planet - forever. With zero pollution. Why don't we use it?
In a society where telling the right lies is good, how would anyone know what they think they know?
I heard the other day that around 80% of the people in the United States claimed to be Christians. That means 80% of the people in the United States live their lives according to a book. Nobody knows why the book(s) was written, what it was written for, who wrote it and so on. A book of collected writings mirroring other ancient zodiacal texts edited by some religious bigshots in Rome. Where are the facts?
Do we know all the people on earth followed the stars - religiously? That they had great knowledge of the world around us? - http://www.snowcrest.net/sunrise/LostZodiac.htm
Life As Energy
“Everything in Life is Vibration” – Albert Einstein
Try thinking of everything as energy for a while. I think you'll have fun doing it and it will lead you into cool places...
"The law of nature that states everything has a vibration. If you've taken a chemistry class you probably remember learning about atoms, and that everything is made up of atoms. These atoms are in a constant state of motion, and depending on the speed of these atoms, things are appear as a solid, liquid, or gas." everything is energySome interesting stuff...
"...is beginning to produce concrete evidence for something that Buddhist practitioners of meditation have maintained for centuries: Mental discipline and meditative practice can change the workings of the brain and allow people to achieve different levels of awareness."
"What we found is that the longtime practitioners showed brain activation on a scale we have never seen before," said Richard Davidson, a neuro-scientist at the university's new $10 million W.M. Keck Laboratory for Functional Brain Imaging and Behavior. "Their mental practice is having an effect on the brain in the same way golf or tennis practice will enhance performance." It demonstrates, "he said, "that the brain is capable of being trained and physically modified in ways few people can imagine."
It seems that science is finally catching up to practices that are literally thousands of years old. It is always amazing and somewhat frustrating that for centuries, millions of people have realized they can rewire their brains; however, science is just now beginning to understand the process and accept that it can actually occur.
Biofeedback"...and neuro-feedback practitioners use equipment to undergo the same changes that the Buddhist monks undergo through training in the process of meditation. The machines used in biofeedback and neuro-feedback allow the user to move into the same states as Buddhist monks. Sensors are attached to the scalp which permit the neuro-feedback practitioner to view what the brain is doing, called brainwave activity, as it immediately happens via the computer screen. Repeating the practice of neuro-feedback can be very similar to meditation. The Keck Laboratory verifies that physical activities or training can actually rewire the brain and this has been demonstrated for feedback practitioners too."
"The brain uses an enormous amount of the body's energy. Even under normal circumstances it uses about 20 percent of your body's entire energy production. When you work your brain harder, [meditate, use neuro-feedback or biofeedback] you use more. The blood flow goes to the brain and it's really like working out, "says Duke University neuro-biologist Dr. Lawrence Katz.
Executive Director of the Center for Brain Health and professor of behavioral and brain sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas, Dr. Sandra Chapman says she wants to dispel the myth that the brain is "an untouchable black box. The brain is highly modifiable by everything we do." Everything we do includes physical exercise, social interaction, meditation, prayer, or playing. Chapman says, "Whatever you spend time doing is what part of your brain is going to strengthen. Don't do random things. Ask yourself if that's the part of your brain you want to build. We see people who lose a lot of their ability, but the first thing to come back is the thing that they did the most."
From our new knowledge of the working brain, it is evident that the opportunity exists to rewire the circuits that are weakest in persons with ADHD, i.e., those circuits that don't allow attention to low-level stimuli like balancing a checkbook, cleaning your room, finishing homework, staying organized, or finishing a project at work. The object is to practice mindfulness and work on the aforementioned specific tasks. I developed Play Attention for just this purpose and science is finally catching up to us.
In referring to rewiring and strengthening the brain, research psychiatrist, Jeffrey Schwartz, of UCLA's Neuro-psychiatric Institute says, "The key really is the refocusing. When you refocus you activate alternative brain machinery... [It] really is like going to the gym; you're strengthening your brain. When you stop doing it, you have a stronger brain...

Intuition and the Absolute - Henri Bergson
Henri Bergson defined metaphysics as the science that dispenses with symbols to grasp the absolute. Hence metaphysics involves an inversion of the habitual modes of thought and is in need of its own method, which he identified as intuition.
Henri Bergson defined intuition as a simple, indivisible experience of sympathy through which one is moved into the inner being of an object to grasp what is unique and ineffable within it. The absolute that is grasped is always perfect in the sense that it is perfectly what it is, and infinite in the sense that it can be grasped as a whole through a simple, indivisible act of intuition, yet lends itself to boundless enumeration when analysed.
