A car in self-driving mode (the one on its side in the photo) was just involved in a crash in Tempe, Arizona. Having recently driven 18,000+ miles in 3 months through every lower US state, I am skeptical of self-driving cars. Also, beating my chess computer at the highest setting yesterday morning made me trust self-driving artificial intelligence even less. Human drivers with consciousness have a superior ability to navigate unique situations. I dealt with crazy stuff while driving across America. In one place the lines on a multi-lane road disappeared. The locals knew how many lanes there were, but I had no way to tell. Some traffic lights and signs were strangly oriented, oddly worded, or barely visible. Visibility dropped to a few feet on a freeway once due to massive rain. A rogue gust of wind almost pushed me off the road. There were deer, cattle, other animals and some terrible […]
Based on the best-selling book by Toronto psychiatrist and researcher Dr. Norman Doidge, a look at how we view the human mind. An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable, and proving that it is, in fact, possible to change your brain. This program offers a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain. “The Brain That Changes Itself” is the inspiration behind Annie Hopper’s work in helping thousands heal from chronic and mysterious illnesses using her Dynamic Neural Retraining System rehabilitation program.
By: Jay The subject of dissociative identity disorder and the fracturing of the psyche is a complex topic that is becoming more mainstream through alternative media. The causes, nature and extent of the disorder are still shrouded in mystery, though modern medicine and psychology do have a lot to say about the matter. One of the reasons the disorder is controversial is that it doesn’t seem to fit well in the dominant materialist/biologist reductionism upon which mass science is built. Given the presupposition of modern science that the psyche is entirely equated with the brain itself, the assumptions are thus that any possible solution to mental problems of this nature can only be remedied or suppressed through the addition of, and rearrangement of, molecular compounds. This fact is seen most clearly in the pharmaceutical solution, which may provide temporary relief and the subduing of more manic tendencies, fails to […]
What is metaphysics, and why should we bother studying it? What benefits does it have for humanity? What is its purpose? How will its teachings help advance society? How will it assist our civilization and culture to progress? How will our lives be re-created individually and collectively with the application of metaphysical principles? Questions abound concerning metaphysics, for people intuitively feel that it may have something precious to offer in terms of facilitating personal growth and self-empowerment. Among those spiritually inclined, it has become a “prime directive” to understanding their lives in terms of metaphysical principles and concepts such as multi-dimensional realities, the Higher Self, love, karma, reincarnation, etheric energies, psychicism, oneness with all, cosmic beings, the ascension, etc., and some of the causes of this higher thinking and awareness is the thinning of the cosmic veil between dimensions; the increased contact with invisible forces; the influence of intense […]
‘TIME’ – AS GIVEN TO ME FROM OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN. By N Molloy This was given to me after I was shown an event which was on another timeline operating on their Jan 4 2005. It ended as an Armageddon type scenario. But it didn’t show in our timeframe for that date. However something of that nature may still happen to bring the two realities into alignment. I’m still working on the relationship of one timeline to another. I’ve seen supposedly extinct timelines re-animate when hope was revived for their remanifestation. It’s obviously complicated and all I can do is write what happened and learn from hindsight or more information as it happens. Time proceeds from a central spot within the universe. Forward time emanates from the mind and thoughts of God, as He thinks and creates and it pushes all events forward as He creates them – […]
How They Operate by Nicki INTRODUCTORY NOTE This idea of ‘selves’ positioned in the future apparently isn’t new, others have experienced them. I’ve not had a variation in perception of the events described below to date, though have from time to time had brief experiences of other possible future times that had the potential to manifest, if other factors reinforced it e.g. decisions by others. But they only appeared in lucid dreams. There appears to be a place in the inner worlds that will produce and transmit to us an instant ‘outcome’ of various decisions, rather like a computer would process causative data and give a result. Though it is probably a good thing to anticipate the events which ARE preordained and aren’t subjected to other’s influences. Sometimes in a very hypersensitive mood, I have thought about a possibility and instantly the results of it have manifested in my […]
Being a detailed description of the Future life purporting to be communicated by the late F. W. H. Myers [Frederic William Henry Myers, 1843-1901] Containing an account of the gradual development of human personality into cosmic personality through GERALDINE CUMMINS “For it has been my lot to be concerned in a work more important and more successful than anything in my own capacity or character could have led me to expect. I have been one of the central group concerned in a great endeavor; the endeavor to pierce, by scientific methods, the world-old, never-penetrated veil. The movement which took overt shape in 1882, with the formation of the Society for Psychical Research, was aided indeed by help from other quarters, but in its essential character was the conception of a few minds, and was piloted through its early dangers by a small group of intimate friends. With this endeavor […]
