This is an excerpt of an article published originally in qz.com. Click here to read full article. Consciousness permeates reality. Rather than being just a unique feature of human subjective experience, it’s the foundation of the universe, present in every particle and all physical matter. This sounds like easily-dismissible bunkum, but as traditional attempts to explain consciousness continue to fail, the “panpsychist” view is increasingly being taken seriously by credible philosophers, neuroscientists, and physicists, including figures such as neuroscientist Christof Koch and physicist Roger Penrose. “Why should we think common sense is a good guide to what the universe is like?” says Philip Goff, a philosophy professor at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. “Einstein te

Source: - http://aetherforce.com/teslas-mot-censored-interview/ In 1899, Tesla gave this interview which has rarely ever been published for over 100 years. In it Tesla pulls no punches and reveals the great conspiracy of science that was well under way, the suppression of ether and the introduction of a new fake science to conceal it as well as to suppress the work of Tesla himself. Once, in 1899, Nikola Tesla had an interview with a certain journalist, John Smith, when Tesla said, “Everything is the light.” In one of its rays is the fate of nations, each nation has its own ray in that great light source, which we see as the Sun. In this interview this greatest inventor and seer of modern time unravels a new vision of humanity which we, the light warriors of the first and the last

Source: - This article is originally Published in Swarajya.com For thousands of years, our ancient Sanskrit texts, especially the Vedas, comprising of thousands of words, were kept alive only through memorisation, and transferred from one generation to the next by speech. The tradition of oral learning and recitation is perhaps as old as the oldest cradle of Indian civilisation itself. Why did India’s ancient scholars preferred the oral way instead of writing it all down for everyone’s convenience? Did they believe memorising and reciting ancient Sanskrit mantras helped improve their memory? If they did, they were likely spot on. The results of structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) show that memorising Sanskrit mantras can increase size of brain regions associated with cognitive fu

Global Consciousness Project : Subtle interactions link us with each other and the Earth

Miscellaneous
Evidence suggests a unifying field of consciousness described by sages in all cultures. "The Global Consciousness Project is an international, multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists and engineers. We collect data continuously from a global network of physical random number generators located in up to 70 host sites around the world at any given time. The data are transmitted to a central archive which now contains more than 15 years of random data in parallel sequences of synchronized 200-bit trials generated every second." "Our purpose is to examine subtle correlations that may reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world. We hypothesize that there will be structure in what should be random data, associated with major global events that engage our minds an...
