Stuart Hameroff and Deepak Chopra Dive Deep Into Consciousness

Deepak Chopra and Stuart Hameroff take an in-depth dive into the science of consciousness.*

Stuart Hameroff, MD is a physician, Professor of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson. In medical school, Hameroff became interested in intelligent behavior of microtubules, protein lattices within brain neurons and other living cells. Hameroff developed theories of microtubules as self-organizing molecular computers, and teamed with Sir Roger Penrose on the controversial Penrose-Hameroff “Orch OR” model of consciousness. Based on quantum computing in brain microtubules, Orch OR connects brain activities to the most basic level of the universe — fundamental spacetime geometry at the Planck scale. At that level, Penrose has proposed Platonic information guiding or influencing conscious choices and perceptions. Orch OR could be seen as providing a plausibility argument for non-locality and spirituality. Hameroff is also involved with clinical trials of transcranial ultrasound (TUS) for mood and cognitive dysfunction, and co-organizes the biennial interdisciplinary conference ‘Toward a Science of Consciousness.’

A Closer Look at the Serapeum

Join Yousef Awyan to explore the mysteries of the Serapeum in Saqqara. We will examine where the name Serapeum came from, the high level of technology the ancient Egyptians must have used to produce these incredible boxes and see why we shouldn’t always rely on writings as evidence to date sites and devices.

Is there scientific proof we can heal ourselves? Lissa Rankin, MD at TEDx

New age gurus suggest that we can heal ourselves by simply changing our minds, but is this concept grounded in cold, hard science? Lissa Rankin, MD explores the scientific literature, reviewing case studies of spontaneous remission, as well as placebo and nocebo effect data, to prove that our thoughts powerfully affect our physiology when we believe we can get well.

Psychedelic mushrooms put your brain in a “waking dream,” study finds

000000000000000000000000000000000000000ju

[Washington Post] Psychedelic mushrooms can do more than make you see the world in kaleidoscope. Research suggests they may have permanent, positive effects on the human brain.

In fact, a mind-altering compound found in some 200 species of mushroom is already being explored as a potential treatment for depression and anxiety. People who consume these mushrooms, after “trips” that can be a bit scary and unpleasant, report feeling more optimistic, less self-centered, and even happier for months after the fact.

But why do these trips change the way people see the world? According to a study published today in Human Brain Mapping, the mushroom compounds could be unlocking brain states usually only experienced when we dream, changes in activity that could help unlock permanent shifts in perspective […]

Nexus Magazine Features Nassim Haramein’s Unified Physics

“What if Nassim Haramein is Right?” is the title featured in a recent Nexus France Magazine article written by Marc Mistiaen. The cover of the magazine reads, “A Black Hole at the Heart of the Atom!”

I have too often been a submissive member of the audience as I listened to unequivocal speakers. Goodbye to my certainties. Welcome, doubts that impose on me never again to consider anything true or false. In short, I got back to the foundations of scientific method.

Mistiaen writes about his experience attending Haramein’s lecture in Europe and goes into detail regarding Haramein’s revolutionary approach to Unified Physics through his latest peer reviewed and published paper “Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass.” This article is a must read from the unique insight of a European educated engineer. You will read Marc’s account as he goes from critical minded skeptic into a deeper exploration of Unified Physics, which made him question the very basis of “accepted” physics itself.

The Dhammapada: Wisdom of the Buddha

From ancient times to the present, the Dhammapada has been regarded as the most succinct expression of the Buddha’s teaching found in the Pali canon and the chief spiritual testament of early Buddhism.

To his followers, the Buddha is neither a god, a divine incarnation, or a prophet bearing a message of divine revelation, but a human being who by his own striving and intelligence has reached the highest spiritual attainment of which man is capable — perfect wisdom, full enlightenment, complete purification of mind. His function in relation to humanity is that of a teacher — a world teacher who, out of compassion, points out to others the way to Nibbana (Sanskrit: Nirvana), final release from suffering. His teaching, known as the Dhamma, offers a body of instructions explaining the true nature of existence and showing the path that leads to liberation. Free from all dogmas and inscrutable claims to authority, the Dhamma is founded solidly upon the bedrock of the Buddha’s own clear comprehension of reality, and it leads the one who practices it to that same understanding — the knowledge which extricates the roots of suffering. The title “Dhammapada” which the ancient compilers of the Buddhist scriptures attached to our anthology means portions, aspects, or sections of Dhamma.
