7 Ways to Fine-Tune Your Brain

A nice basic overview from New Scientist of current scientific thought on the brain and function. Lends credence to the fathomless potential of evolutionary life described throughout the ancient teachings, and put forth in the documentary by Michael Murphy The Future of the Body  

Still true  “…extraordinary experiences (some are called miracles) – intense, overwhelming, indescribable are recorded at every time in history, and in every place on the globe and are widespread in American society today. No one with any familiarity with history or anthropology or psychology can deny they occur. They are a form of “altered states of consciousness” – to use the current approved phrase – something like intoxication or delirium or a hypnotic trance but different in their intensity, their joyfulness and their ‘lifting out’ dimension. In some cases, such experiences were triggered by drugs, in others by ritual dances, in others by disciplined meditation; but most such ‘ecstatic interludes’ about which we have accounts seem to be purely spontaneous – a man casually walking by a tennis court is suddenly caught up in a wave of peace and joy ‘as time stands still’.” Andrew Greeley, New York Times

7 ways to fine-tune your brain
Boost your memory, learning, creativity, intelligence and more

The human mind is the most complex information processing system we know. It has all sorts of useful design features but also many glitches and weaknesses. The problem is, it doesn’t come with a user’s manual. You just have to plug and play.

But if anyone knows how to get the best out of our brains, it’s neuroscientists. So we asked some of the best to explain how the human brain performs many of its most useful functions and how to use them to the max.

A Little Bit of Music – Perpetual Universal Harmonics – Bucky Fuller, Walter Russell Style

 Fwd from Facebook

Music directly reflects the geometric structure of space-time. Here we see how the musical system called "the circle of fifths" perfectly maps to the cube octahedron, or what Buckminster Fuller called the "vector equilibrium" which is comprised of 6 pairs of equal and opposite vectors that perfectly match the 6 pairs of tri-tones (the interval that divides the 12-tone musical scale perfectly in half).

We already have the fractal geometry of the structure of the vacuum of space encoded into our musical systems!

The world’s largest oil disaster just got worse

Never mind the name on the account – this was written by my colleague, Ashley Allison, SierraRise Senior Campaigner. Standing eye to eye with Chevron CEO John Watson, Servio Curipoma fought back tears andbravely declared, “My mother died from your cancer. You killed my mother.”

Chevron files RICO suit in Ecuador case

A court-appointed expert recommended on April 2, 2008 that Chevron Corp. pay up to US$16 billion (10.2 billion) for allegedly polluting Ecuador's Amazon in a class-action suit by 30,000 jungle settlers and Indians.

Using a law written to prosecute the Mafia, Chevron Corp. filed a racketeering lawsuit against a team of lawyers who have been fighting the company over oil field pollution in Ecuador.

Chevron and the lawyers have been locked in an increasingly bitter, 18-year lawsuit that seeks to hold Chevron accountable for contaminating the soil and water in a swath of northeastern Ecuador. Texaco, bought by Chevron in 2001, drilled for oil there from 1964 to 1992 before turning over operations to state-run Petroecuador.  As a verdict in the marathon lawsuit nears, Chevron has tried to prove corruption among the lawyers and Ecuadoran officials involved in the case.

The plaintiffs’ lawyers slammed the new suit as an attempt by Chevron to bleed them of cash and distract the public from evidence of the company’s guilt in Ecuador.

The Other 98% - Politics for the Rest of Ushttp://other98.com/

Despite Chevron’s attacks, the brave people of Ecuador and their supporters aren’t giving up the fight — but they can’t do it alone. Will you stand with them?

Servio, a cacao farmer from the small oil-ravaged town of San Carlos, Ecuador, traveled thousands of miles to face down the CEO of one of the world’s most powerful companies. His goal: Hold Chevron accountable for polluting his once-pristine homeland with toxic
oil waste and killing his parents and his sister.

For three decades, Texaco, now part of Chevron, dumped 18 billion gallons of toxic oil waste into the beautiful Ecuadorian Amazon. Servio’s family and thousands like it were left sufferinga plague of deadly cancers and devastating birth defects.

Now, despite losing a 20-year legal battle, Chevron continues to deny responsibility for the world’s largest oil disaster. 

The U.S. Senate has the power to investigate and help stop Chevron’s outrageous attacks on those who stand up to corporate greed. But it is up to us to make sure they use that power.

Tell the U.S. Senate’s top corporate watchdogs to investigate Chevron’s attacks against the very people it poisoned. Let’s flood their inboxes with 70,000 comments before Thursday’s big press conference!

In an unprecedented move, the oil giant is using a U.S. law intended to rein in mobsters to sue Servio’s neighbors and fellow activists and supporters — branding them as criminals just for speaking out.

The Sierra Club and thirty other organizations have joined forces to call out Chevron for their dirty tactics — but we need to keep the drumbeat going. These 10 powerful senators have aproven track record of taking on big corporations and winning. If they stand with us, then Chevron’s evil tactics can be stopped.

In 1994, when Texaco was done pillaging Ecuador, it left behind a toxic wasteland. More than 900 open and unlined waste pits dot the landscape, overflowing toxic chemicals into the waterways that Servio’s family and their neighbors rely on
for cooking and bathing.

Send your message and let’s show Chevron it can’t put profits over people!

Servio isn’t alone. Emergildo Criollo lost his two sons and nursed a wife through uterine cancer. His family drank, bathed, and fished in water he now knows was poisoned with oil. He says, “I lost two children to Texaco’s pollution and the company now calls me a criminal for daring to demand justice.”

Despite Chevron’s attacks, the brave people of Ecuador and their supporters aren’t giving up the fight — but they can’t do it alone. Will you stand with them?

In it together,
Ashley Allison

The Death of Birth

‘The Corporation’ looks at the rise of the corporate body as having the legal status of a “person” — albeit with no conscience — and its collective psychopathic raping of the planets’ people and resources due to a greed-based bottom-line motivation. The film also touches on more recent trends within the corporate world to awaken morally and infuse ethics into the equation, to halt and then reverse the past damages that have been inflicted.

CARING ABOUT OUR CHILDREN
 
• How many more “bridges” do we need to build to continue to create futures of “limits”, that constrict and choke, while adapting to the consequences of the “limit creation platform”, i.e., ecological destruction, global warning, poverty, slower than a snail on superhighways…….the list goes on and on? Just so everyone can stay (using a polite term) “uninformed” about energy evolution, and their lack of freedom to create infinite possibilities from infinite resources?
 
“You have no need to know” since the 1940’s, is a concept totally incompatible with Freedom. It is time to wake up to the unused possibilities of E=MC2. 
The question must be asked: How can a “free” society be so brainwashed into believing that out of countless possibilities of E=MC2 applications, we know of only two – nuclear bombs, and the deadly radiation by-product application?

Top 10 Worst Effects of Global Warming

« previous

By
Global warming is the long-term, cumulative effect that greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide and methane, have on Earth’s temperature when they build up in the atmosphere and trap the sun’s heat. It’s also a hotly debated topic. Some wonder if it’s really happening and, if it’s real, is it the fault of human actions, natural causes or both?
When we talk about global warming, we’re not talking about how this summer’s temperatures were hotter than last year’s. Instead, we’re talking about climate change, changes that happen to our environment, atmosphere and weather
over time. Think decades, not seasons. The term global warming itself is a bit deceptive because it implies we should expect things to get hotter — not necessarily stormier, drier and even, in some instances, colder. Climate change impacts the hydrology and biology of the planet — everything, including winds, rains and temperature, is linked. Scientists have ob­served that the Earth’s climate has a long history of variability, from the cold climes of the Ice Age to temperatures as hot as an Easy-Bake oven. These changes are sometimes noted over a few decades and sometimes stretch over thousands of years. What can we expect from a planet undergoing climate changes?
Scientists studying our climate have been able to observe and measure changes happening around us. For example, mountain glaciers are smaller now than they were 150 years ago, and in the last 100 years, the average global
temperature has increased by roughly 1.4 degrees F (0.8 degrees C) . Computer modeling allows scientists to predict what could happen if the climate pattern continues on its current course, projecting, for instance, that temperatures could rise an average of 2 to 11.5 degrees F (1.1 to 6.4 degrees C) by the end of the 21st century .
In this article, we’ll look at 10 of the worst effects of climate change, including some immediate effects observed and some hypothesized through climate modeling.
 
Global warming isn’t just about things getting hotter — other changes can occur,including stormier, drier and even, in some instances, colder conditions.

Awesome World View Enhancement: Walter Russell’s Concept of Light & Revolution Tied to The Radius of Curvature

Awesome World View Enhancement: Walter Russell’s Concept of Light & Revolution Tied to The Radius of Curvature

Imagine, no change in our mathematical grasp of reality, but a huge change in our world view, perspective, interpretation of Reality; removing the limits of our narrow, limited, “flat world” view of space and time and energy; opening the doors to evolutionary possibilities not even imagined. Makes one wonder, WHO is choosing the current state of the world in 21st century science.

Reprinted with permission from Exploring Energy evolution http://exploringenergyevolution.blogspot.com/

A few additional perceptual clarifications of space, time, mass, matter, energy, gravity are necessary before engineering and technological applications can proceed with common sense clarity. Mathematics in terms of frequency/energy differential equivalents are required for each factor.

While StarSteps is a far easier read, Russell’s perspective from the sphere/cube, light/sound, periodic table/musical note correspondence presents a reality view from another angle.

The Radius of Curvature, the Constant C: the kinetic energy equivalent of the mass energy of matter
Recall: We can now see that a frequency differential which by the above formula is equal to 9×10(20) ergs per gram also represents the quantity C. When such a frequency differential exists between the observer and the point which he is observing, we again find that the natural laws at the observed point reach zero value with respect to the observer. If the frequency differential exceeds this value, the action of the laws will become negative.

For those wondering how to test these concepts using such great energy differentials as the quantity C between reference points, reconsider the state of matter and electrons, and their relationships where this differential potential already exists. (See recap at end of post)

Walter Russell’s Concept of Light & Revolution 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvCHOBxN-wU

“Walter Russell believed that everything is light. This can be linked directly with the equation energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. Light will radiate out in all directions forming a sphere and the three dimensions of our everyday life. All we have to do is place the Lorentz contraction of space and time between the energy and mass. The greater the energy the greater the contraction of space and the slower time will run. Mass will increase relative to this and each ref-frame can be seen as a vortex in space and time.”

Walter Russell: Genero-activity begins at the birth of carbon in the first octave with genero-active, inner explosive speed of light which is 186,400 miles per second. It ends with an equal radioactive, outer explosive speed. This speed is the limit at which motion can reproduce itself in curved wave fields before reaching zero where motion and curvature cease.

Walter Russell: Within each cube field is the curved universe of two way light illusion; and beyond, to the farthest reaches of space, is a repetition of illusion from wave field to wave field at the rate of 186,400 miles per second. That is the speed in which every action-reaction anywhere repeats itself everywhere. This illusion of motion gives rise to the belief that light “travels.”

Walter Russell: The creation of all forms of matter is an eternal interchange between incandescent spheres and cold cubes. All forms are born in the direction of the coldness of space and are voided in the direction of incandescence. Thus, the two opposite plus and minus equilibrium conditions are produced which motivate this electric universe of two-way motion, give to it its heartbeat and produce all effects of illusion caused by the interchange of the two conditions of matter.

There is only NOW
Barbara Dewey The Theory of Laminated Spacetime: Electro-magnetic waves are spiralling particles of matter-in-motion or a laminated quantum of spacetime. Each electron is a perfect example, These particles are in a wave-like pattern because they are going through the process of creation and destruction in the blink of Laminated Spacetime. They are surging “up’ as they come into existence. They are dying back as they expire. They display “positive” (counterclockwise) and negative (clockwise characteristics because of the twist of the double helix.

The above should offer clearer insights into:

Obtaining Energy by Annihilation of an Electron with a Positron
.
.
We can obtain renewable, clean, safe, cheap energy by annihilation, for example, of an electron with an anti-electron (positron). An electron and positron are obtained by extracting them from atoms; the extraction consumes a negligible amount of energy. Then, the two particles are brought near one another (collision).
.
.
.
.
.
Recap: Points we know
 
 
.
.
.
.
  • The natural laws are not absolute, but relative. 

  • That is, the size and shape of the curve of one law is dependent upon the value and position  of the others.   

  • If a differential of energy equal to the quantity C exists between the observer and the point which he is observing, the natural laws will be suspended.  

  • If the energy differential is in excess of the quantity C, the laws will appear to operate in reverse at that point.  

  • The Bell device was designed to use high-speed counter-rotating components filled with specialized materials and energized by electromagnetic energy to induce “torsion” effects and thus control gravity and other significant effects. 

  • We refer not only to the charges in the outer shell of the atom but to those within as well, and especially to the fact, not always realized, that the neutron possesses both a positive and a negative charge, although when united within the neutron they are not discernible as charges, but exist as energy which produces the gravitational field.
