Scientists of the Duke University in North Carolina claim to have developed a “sixth sense” by using a special implant in the brain of experimental animals.
Lead researcher Miguel Nicolelis said that the results of the experiment led them to important conclusions and paved the way for a new set of prosthetic devices that can be controlled by the brain and may give us an opportunity to understand and “see” the infrared range of the electromagnetic radiation.
Lab mice were induced with infrared sensors, which were adapted to the area of the brain that is responsible for sensing information related to the touch. Therefore, once the animals perceived the infrared radiation, the brain interpreted it as “tactile stimulation”, resulting in the fact that mice did not see the beam, but could feel it, shaking the nose and scratching their fur.

Scientists say that we may soon be able to control flying drones with our minds, and communicate almost telepathically via smart phones, thanks to temporary electronic tattoos. Todd Coleman, associate professor of bioengineering at the University of California, is developing non-invasive means to control electronics with the mind – a technique that can be used by practically anybody.
Controlling machines by thought alone is no longer strictly the domain of science fiction. In recent years, brain implants have given people the ability to control robots with their thoughts, giving hope that one day we will be able to overcome the disadvantages of serious injury and disability with the help of bionic limbs or mechanical exoskeletons.
But brain implants are an invasive technology, and perhaps should only be used in people who need them for medical reasons. Instead, Coleman and his team are developing flexible wireless chips that read brain activity, which can be placed on the hand in the form of a temporary tattoo. Continue reading
In an experiment that seems to come out of science fiction, American neuroscientists connected with cables the brains of two rats, allowing them to perceive and accept the stimuli of each other, even at a distance of thousands of kilometers.
Tricking the brain
“Can we trick the brain? Can it process signals from another body?” That was the question Miguel Nicolelis of Duke University in North Carolina tried to answer. And according to a study published in the journal «Scientific Reports», the answer is yes. Continue reading
Lab rats gained a “sixth sense” via brain implant that allowed them to “touch” the infrared light, according to data published in the journal Nature Communications.
Seeing in the infrared spectrum
Team of researchers at Duke University in North Carolina, led by Dr. Miguel Nicolelis, announced during the annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston that this new breakthrough opens the way for a new generation of prosthetic devices that are controlled by the brain and in the future will probably give people the ability to “see” in the infrared spectrum of electromagnetic radiation.

Many of us think that what we are capable of doing now are the only things we will only be capable of doing for the rest of our lives. Things that are of supernatural and beyond “normal” human senses are impossible for those who are not born with these “gifts”, but this is completely a myth.
If you have heard other people saying that the mind is capable of doing many things, well they are right! The brain has a very huge and unexplained scope of power that only those who have unlocked these powers will be able to access it. Our thoughts have the power to alter reality and many others only we dismiss the idea of these extraordinary powers because most of us do not know they exist, while some do not understand these powers entirely.

How many times we wished to be able to contact someone without words… New company for scientific and military research plans to make the dream come true by giving us a possibility to send text or audio messages by thought. The technology of so-called synthetic telepathy is based on analyzing electrical activity of the brain using EEG. Similar technology is already commercially available and used in video games.

Michael Talbot is an Australian writer, whose books originally were only science fiction, combining quantum physics and spirituality. However, it appears that many scientists today share his theory and do not consider it science fiction. This new theory of reality says that the physical universe is nothing more than a hologram, ie an illusion, a projection of a certain initial level of the world. Continue reading
New research came to the conclusion that DNA has the ability to self-assemble even at a distance, while according to the known science it has been considered impossible. There is still no explanation for this phenomenon.
Scientists report data stating that, in contrast to current beliefs about what is possible and what is not, the double helix of DNA has the incredible ability to distantly recognize similarities in other DNA strands. In some way, they can recognize each other, and the microscopic sections of genetic material tend to congregate with similar DNA. The mechanism of identification of similar sequences in the chemical subunits of DNA yet cannot be interpreted by science, which has no explanation why DNA behaves in such a way, since the current theory finds it chemically impossible.

Students of anomalistic psychology study human behavior and experiences that are generally described as paranormal. However, these scientists operate without the assumption of paranormal activity; and studies often “bust” popular paranormal myths. Continue reading
For many years, animal trainers, pet owners and naturalists have been speaking of various cases of insight in animals, indicating that they have telepathic abilities. Unfortunately, this topic has not been studied enough, since scientists have a taboo on all kinds of the “paranormal”, while researchers and parapsychologists are focused on humans.
According to sample research in Englandand the United States, many pet owners believe that their animals sometimes communicate with them telepathically. On average, 48% of dog owners and a third of cat owners claim that their pets respond to their thoughts and silent commands. Continue reading
