No one in the world can fathom what quantum mechanics is, this is perhaps the most important thing you need to know about it. Granted, many physicists have learned to use its laws and even predict phenomena based on quantum calculations. But it is still unclear why the observer of an experiment determines behavior of the system and causes it to favor one state over another. “Theories and Applications” picked examples of experiments with outcomes which will inevitably be influenced by the observer, and tried to figure out how quantum mechanics is going to deal with the intervention of conscious thought in material reality.

Cell biologist Dr. Bruce X. Lipton (formerly professor of medical courses in high school and now scientific researcher) was one of the first scientists who detected this effect. Having performed a series of experiments, he revealed that the cell membrane is an organic analogue of a computer chip.
Although these views conflict with the scientific doctrine, which states that genes are those that control behavior, similar publications of other researchers have strengthen this view. Continue reading
The problem of consciousness still remains confusing and is divided not so much among academic schools, but according to their philosophical approaches. What is it all about when we talk about consciousness? Is it a necessary part of complex cognitive processes of understanding the world? Are there different types, forms and levels of development of consciousness? Do animals have consciousness?
In fact, the mystery surrounding the last question is gradually dissipating as more and more features we are accustomed to assign to human thinking and human consciousness can be found in animals. And quite often, these animals are not chimpanzees or orangutans similar to humans. These can be wolves, dogs and even parrots.
Autists: A distinct level
Professor Temple Grandin, a prominent scientific figure in the world, is the main character of a bestseller “Anthropologist on Mars” by an equally famous neurologist Oliver Sacks. Professor Grandin is an autist and an expert in animal behavior. The unique combination of these qualities allowed her to hypothesize that Continue reading
A book titled “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe“, published in the USA, has stirred up the Internet, because it contained a notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. The author of this publication, scientist Robert Lanza has no doubts that this is possible.
Beyond time and space
Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and scientific director of Advanced Cell Technology Company. Before he has been known for his extensive research which dealt with stem cells, he was also famous for several successful experiments on cloning endangered animal species. Continue reading
“If a man die, shall he live again?” This age-old question of the biblical patriarch Job has occupied human minds for centuries. Now the American physicist Robert Lanza of Wake Forest University in North Carolina decided to find the answer. With the help of quantum physics, he tried to prove the existence of life after death, writes the Daily Mail.
According to Lanza, there is a theory that asserts the presence of parallel universes in which events occur simultaneously, but in different ways. Lanza believes that death is not the absolute end of life, but it is rather a transition to another, parallel world. Continue reading
Water is alive! For the first time, the amazing response of water to music and human emotions is demonstrated through valid scientific experiments.
The Japanese scientist Dr. Masaru Emoto, attempts to prove something that hitherto seemed unthinkable: water is a living entity that responds consciously not only to environmental stimuli but also to human psychic energies! With the help of modern science and using a technologically advanced tool Magnetic Resonance Analyzer, the researcher studied the crystalline form of water and made photos of the changes brought to it from the various environmental and human influences.
What are the musical tastes of water?
How does it react when it is talked to with love?
How does it respond to thoughts and intentions?
How much does water suffer from environmental pollution? Continue reading
Dr. Dispenza is known worldwide for his original theory of the connection between mind and matter. The scientist gained his greatest fame after the release of his acclaimed documentary «We know what makes a signal» in 2004. His research helped disclose the extraordinary possibilities of consciousness and its ability to create synaptic connection with a strong concentration.
Just imagine: with each new sensation, vision or emotional experience a new connection between two of more than Continue reading
For 80 years now we are told that the first self-replicating molecules appeared in the primordial soup in the Earth’s shallow waters, which happened 4 billion years ago. This “soup” was composed of amino-acids, polypeptides, and nitrogenous bases of nucleotides formed as a result of electrical charges, high heat and cosmic radiation.
However, the experiments to replicate similar processes have given mixed results: the basic monomers began to form substances that prevented the expected complexity to exist in this “soup” of polymers.
Later, the problem seemed to have been simplified by the “RNA world” hypothesis, but the probability of spontaneous formation of RNA, which would Continue reading
1. Specific objective
Once you articulate a specific goal or a task for yourself, wonderful things will start happening. You will be able to find resources, opportunities and time to accomplish things.
And if you outline the main goal for yourself and split your main objective into smaller tasks while slowly, steadily, step by step trying to carry them out, you will have no problems in achieving what you set your mind to.
2. Positive emotions
Emotions are short-term subjective human responses to the world around us (joy, anger, shame, etc.). Feelings can be described as consistent emotional attitude towards other people or phenomena. Feelings are associated with consciousness and can develop and improve continuously. Continue reading
The human brain is able to perform more than a thousand operations per second. This means that its power is still greater than of any computer invented to-date. But this does not mean that our brain does not have limitations. A simple calculator can perform calculations much more precisely and faster, and our memory is often unreliable.
In addition, we tend to fall into traps of our own consciousness, which, time and again, lead us to questionable choices or result in making biased decisions. In this article we will discuss seven of these common traps or, scientifically speaking, “cognitive dissonances.”
1. Affirmation bias
We like to agree with people who agree with us. That is why we often visit forums where people sharing our political views tend to congregate, and we communicate with people, whose tastes and opinions are similar to ours. We despise individuals, groups or sites which provoke us to doubt our established beliefs. Psychologist B. Skinner called this phenomenon a “cognitive dissonance.” Continue reading
