Harvard Scientists Travel To The Himalayas, Find Monks With ‘Superhuman Abilities’

The idea that there are humans on Earth with ‘superhuman’ abilities is something that many of us consider exclusive to Hollywood movies. However, if you were to take a little time to research and investigate, you’d come across a number of extremely interesting articles and texts which suggest that there are humans on Earth who can do the unimaginable. There are numerous ancient teachings that explain how human beings have the ability to obtain mind-boggling abilities through the use of different techniques. Take a look at the ancient Yoga teachings, for example, and read about Buddhism. Through the use of techniques known as siddhis—perfection in Sanskrit—which are meditation techniques including meditation, static dancing, drumming, praying, fasting, psychedelics, and more, people can unlock their potential.

Curiously, in the ancient teachings of Buddhism, we find ample evidence of the existence of ‘extreme powers’, and Buddha expected that his disciples to attain these abilities, and live a peaceful and normal life.… Seguir leyendo...

Researchers in Mexico find the largest underwater archaeological site in the world

Rejoice archaeology, fans researchers in Mexico have discovered what is considered the largest underwater archaeological site on the planet. One of the lesser-known corners of the Mayan underworld has finally come to light. The most extensive system of flooded caves ever recorded has been discovered in Tulum, in the Mexican Riviera Maya. Some of the artifacts discovered by divers.A group of explorers of the Mayan Great Aquifer project has found that the Sac Actún and Dos Ojos systems are connected, which has opened a new passage in an underground labyrinth that measures about 347 kilometers. The researchers have found hundreds of archeological objects that show a robust Mayan culture presence in the region, as well as extinct animals. “This immense cave system represents the most important submerged archaeological site in the world,” says Guillermo de Anda, specialist of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and director of the research.… Seguir leyendo...

New Evidence Suggests Aboriginal Australians Ancestral to Modern Eurasians

After almost forty years of scientific consensus could we be seeing the end of the ‘Recent Out of Africa Theory’ of human origins. The fundamental claim of this theory is that the ancestors of modern Eurasians and Americans lived in Africa 70,000 years ago, before gradually migrating into the world beyond close to 60,000 years ago. Several new studies have left this model looking shaky at best if not perhaps completely disproven. In July 2017, archaeological discoveries made at the Madjedbebe rock shelter site in northern Australia forced the scientific community to recognise that humans had reached Australia at least 65,000 – 80,000 years ago. The new finds ended decades of belief in a maximum 50,000-year long occupation of the continent. The results of the archaeological investigation appeared in the scientific journal Nature under the title ‘Human occupation of northern Australia by 65,000 years ago’.

Artificial structure on Mars—three-sided Pyramid—verified in Science Journal

Mars, the red planet, has always fascinated mankind. For centuries have we pondered about the possibility if there is life on Mars, or if there ever was? Now, the Cydonia Institute for Martian research has released more stunning images of supposed artificial structures on the Martian Surface, which make us question everything we have been taught about Mars in the past. From Pyramidal structures to enigmatic shapes on the Martian surface that hints at possible intelligent design, Mars may have been the home of an advanced civilization billions of years ago. Their latest discovery was presented by Founding investigator, George Haas, and geoscientist Bill Saunders who talked about the artificial structures and how SETI researchers acknowledge their findings in a recent interview with coast-to-coast. A Three-sided Pyramid on Mars As noted by experts in their study (click here) there is a three-sided pyramidal formation in the Candor Chasma region of Mars.… Seguir leyendo...

According to NASA, A Skyscraper-Sized Asteroid Hurtling Toward Earth Is ‘Potentially Hazardous’

A massive kilometer-wide asteroid is hurtling towards our planet at a speed of 107,826 km per hour. Asteroid AJ129 2002, which will pass eerily close to our planet on February 4 at a speed of 107,826 km per hour has been classified by the International Astronomical Union as “potentially hazardous” for Earth. Potentially hazardous objects are either asteroids or comets with an orbit such that it has the potential to make close approaches to the Earth and is of a size large enough to cause significant regional damage in the event of an impact. The asteroid measures approximately 1.1 kilometers in diameter. Image Credit: ShutterstockAstronomers place potentially hazardous asteroids with some threat from impacting our planet in the next 100 years are listed on the Sentry Risk Table. Reports indicate that as of March 2017 there are 1,786 known potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) and only 205 have an observation arc shorter than 30 days.… Seguir leyendo...

Professor Stephen Hawking Reveals 3 Ways We Can Travel In Time

So… time travel is possible… at least theoretically. Traveling in time has been one of the greatest fantasies of the human being for centuries. It is a popular trend in movies and science fiction series, and the idea has inspired novels from Charles Dickens’ The Christmas Tale, to Charlton Heston’s The Planet of the Apes masterpiece. So… is time travel achievable? If we take a look at the last couple of years, we will notice quite a few scientific studies that have researched the idea of traveling in time. We’ve written about the idea of time travel, and the studies which have looked into the possibility of traveling in time quite a few times in the past. We covered an article that suggests how scientists found out that ‘mathematically’ time travel is possible. “People think of time travel as something as fiction. And we tend to think it’s not possible because we don’t do it,” said Ben Tippett, a physicist, and mathematician from the University of British Columbiasaid in a UBC news release, adding “But, mathematically, it is possible.” According to a number of scientists, there are ways by which we could travel in time.… Seguir leyendo...

“Immortality Drive”: A Time Capsule Carrying ‘Immortal DNA’ That’s Safeguarded On The ISS

When Richard Garriott traveled to the ISS in 2008, he decided to carry along the so-called ‘immortality drive,’ a microchip specifically designed to function as a futuristic time capsule should a catastrophic event happen on Earth. The Immortality drive includes a list of some of humanity’s greatest achievements; as well as messages and writing from Earth. The time capsule also includes the digitized DNA sequences of countless personalities from Earth, from Professor Stephen Hawking, comedian Stephen Colbert to Garriott himself.  The immortality drive, a futuristic time capsule that will keep our species ‘alive’ in case of a catastrophic event on Earth. That is, of course, someone or something recovers the Immortality Drive before the Space Station comes crashing to Earth due to lack of engine maintenance.

Scientists measuring the age of the universe with a new model are left stumped by discovery

A gravitational wave seems to have confirmed the age of the universe but with intrigue, say experts. The study of one of the gravitational waves recorded in recent months has allowed estimating the age of the Universe, confirming previous calculations but with an intrigue factor. The direct detection of gravitational waves from at least five sources during the last two years offers a spectacular confirmation of Einstein’s gravity and space-time model. Astronomers also gathered information on the massive formation of stars, gamma ray bursts, neutron star characteristics and (for the first time) the verification of theoretical ideas about how very heavy elements such as gold are produced. According to reports from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, astronomers used a single gravitational wave event—referred to as GW170817— to measure the age of our universe. NGC4993, the galaxy hosting the gravitational wave event GW170817 that has been used to measure the age of the universe.… Seguir leyendo...

Scientists Spot Abrupt Deceleration Never Before Seen In A Comet

Observations with NASA’s Swift Space Telescope have revealed an abrupt, unprecedented slowdown in the rotation of a comet. Images taken in May of 2017 revealed that comet 41P / Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresák—41P for short—revolved three times slower than in March when it was observed by the Discovery Channel Telescope at the Lowell Observatory in Arizona. This deceleration is the most spectacular change in the rotation of a comet ever seen, and scientists aren’t really sure what is going on.Comet 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresak near Messier 108 and Messier 97 (Owl Nebula). Image Credit: Public Domain According to astronomers, comet 41P orbits our Sun every 5.4 years. When a comet approaches the Sun, the increase in heating causes the ice on its surface to change directly to a gas, producing jets that throw particles of dust and frozen grains into space. “The previous record for a comet spindown went to 103P/Hartley 2, which slowed its rotation from 17 to 19 hours over 90 days,” said Dennis Bodewits, an associate research scientist at the University of Maryland (UMD) in College Park who presented the findings Wednesday, Jan.… Seguir leyendo...

A Message From The Gods? Here’s How Ancient Cultures Interpreted Solar Eclipses

Let’s face it, seeing a solar eclipse is an unforgettable magical moment. It is also one of the most beautiful natural phenomena we can appreciate from Earth. In today’s society, we perfectly understand what occurs when a Solar Eclipse—or Lunar Eclipse—takes place. However, thousands of years ago—and perhaps even tens of thousands of years ago—people saw these majestic natural events from a different point of view. They asked… are these some sort of signs from the Gods? Do these events mark the end of the world? Were these natural events divine omens? Many ancient cultures worshiped the Sun as a God; Egyptians worshiped Amun-Ra, while the Ancient Greek Helios. Ancient people of Japan saw the sun as goddess Amaterasu. In this article, I invite to accompany me while I take a look at how ancient civilizations across the world interpreted solar eclipses, and what these astronomical events meant to them. An artists illustration of an eclipse from space.… Seguir leyendo...
