Nassim Haramein - A New World View

I have been occasionally following Nassim Haramein over the last 3 or 4 years, as time allows. His view of our universe based on theoretical physics and mathematics is world changing!   106 more words

The Life You Live May Be Your Own

Or maybe you took a wrong turn along the way. In my case, I think it was a right one, a miraculous detour, even. But every once in awhile something glimmers in the rearview mirror of my consciousness, and I can almost see that alternate life (or, depending on your beliefs about the universe and time and general grasp of quantum mechanics, parallel life). 45 more words

Why Perspective and Open-Mindedness Matter in Science

Quantum  Mechanics Done Right? – This article in Wired (originally from Quanta) talks about another theory of how quantum mechanics functions. While it seems a dubious theory, I was disappointed to read that others who challenge the orthodoxy of current theory are attacked and denied funding for their ideas. 91 more words

Island Desolate

Parallel Universe…possible or not? Quantum leaping or jumping some say they do it, myself I’d like some proof. In the area of the Bermuda Triangle, I will say some strange things have happened there, without adequate explanation as far as I’m concerned. 694 more words
