Wuhan Epidemic: The Need for a REAL Investigation It looks as though someone is trying to scare us, but it's difficult to know who is behind this most recent epidemic--or if it is just the random mutation that MSM news reports make it out to be.

Money Story I can't say that I've outgrown the magical thinking of Prosperity Consciousness, but I've adopted a more generalized and amorphous belief that my needs will be provided.

Clever Hans in Miniature No one imagined that an insect could be trained to do arithmetic. Conventional thinking tells us that there is a deal of hive intelligence governing collective behaviors, but individual bees are too simple to do anything but respond to stimuli. A bee's brain has about a millionth the complexity of a mammal's.

What No One has Told You about your Aging Body Here's the long and the short of it: The body knows how to be young. It knows how to be old. The body can be any age it decides to be. The body doen't wear out like an old car or a washing machine with leaky gaskets. The life cycle is programmed into us.

Dem's are Impeaching Trump for Wrong Reasons, and It Will Backfire This video from the Truth Factory argues that Trump is not guilty of withholding aid to Ukraine for political reasons, and that in fact the aid was released to Ukraine with no quid pro quo. But, ironically, Biden was guilty of exactly what Trump is being charged with.

Surely you know someone whose thoughts about This question you trust, eager to bestow Her sage advice on your receptive heart.

An Updated Scientific World-View The community of scientists has painted for us a picture of the world that is fundamentally wrong. The picture so many of us carry in our minds is derived from 19th Century science. It is utterly inconsistent with quantum physics, and has been contradicted directly by a body of research on powers of the mind that has been marginalized by the mainstream. But somehow, the picture has survived and become ossified in some of the s

After Capitalism: The Gift Economy but in every place where UBI has been tried, people become more productive, more creative, kinder, more community-minded. They will plant gardens and learn to play the guitar, volunteer at children's hospitals and design murals. Citizen scientists and citizen journalists are born. Violent behaviors decline. Rates of accidents and disease drop through the floor. This is our future, and it can't come too soon.

Applied Parapsychology The picture was chosen by chance from two possible pictures, and, as frequently happens with such experiments, the students' descriptions fit better with the picture that they were actually to be shown than the one they would never be shown (even though at the time they were describing the picture, they had not yet seen it).

Leibniz was no dummy Gottfried Leibniz was a Renaissance genius on a par with Isaac Newton. He developed a unique solution to the problem of reconciling life (and free will) with a mechanically-determined universe.

Yonaguni and Machu Picchu Evidence from two different regions of the world points to an advanced civilization destroyed by a cataclysm at the end of the last ice age, 12,800 years ago. There are fine stone carvings under the sea between Taiwan and Japan (after sea level rose when glaciers melted). And there is larger and finer stone work underneath the Inca construction at Machu Picchu.

Cosmology—an Endangered Science Every fact that we have about the universe as a whole was obtained at enormous cost in time, dollars, and effort. Because the facts we have about the universe are few, in good faith we can only entertain theories that are very simple. Now the observations are telling us the Universe might be complex. That leaves us with an embarrassment of physical models.

Climate Sense — Are we being hustled? I like what the Truth Cat has brought to this conversation, though I'm not on all fours with her political philosophy. The Fossil Fuel industry is not the only bloc with an agenda in this debate.

What does ‘sesquicentennial’ mean? The Tides of Change Herewith is Beauty fashioned? Canst thou deem Her evanescent roses bourgeon save Within the sunlight tender on her grave? Awake no winds but bear her dust, a gleam In morning's prophecy or sunset's dream; And every cry that ever Sirens gave From islands mournful with the quiring wave Was echo of a music once supreme.

Gratitude for What we Once Had The hardest gratitude is what we've lost, Appreciating that which did not last. To feel this is to know the future's cost, And free yourself to leave behind the past. It's difficult, but trust yourself to cope-- To step into the unknown, ripe with hope.
