A Case for the Chakras – Part 1

We have all no doubt heard and read about Chakras, the system of swirling light at key points along the central line of the body. Prominent scientists at the fringes of the main stream have been studying and making breakthroughs in this field, most notably Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, and Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama (website).

A question that has plagued the spiritual community ever since 1500-500 BC (Sacred Centers) when the Vedas were written, up until today is whether these spinning wheels of light really exist.

Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, Russian professor of Physics of St. Petersburg Federal Research University, developed a system for measuring the energetic state of the body via technology based on Kirlian photography. It is called Bio-Well, a pairing of camera and software which gathers energetic information from the body using Korotkov’s Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technology. Output on the screen via the accompanying software, is a diagram that displays the state of the Chakras of body.

Bio-Well is based on the fact that there exists an energy system about the body, and the signature of which is picked up by the GDV camera, and is interpreted and mapped out to give a visualization of the energetic state of the body and the the Chakra system.

Science is more and more catching up to the claim of the existence of Chakras, with technology based on them to act as a feedback tool of sorts. Once one can see what there energy body is doing visually, then steps to correct any imbalances can be taken.

In his book Theories of the Chakras, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama gives a highly detailed and in-depth description of the Continue reading

Acupunture: From Quack Science to Proven Medical Treatment – Natural News

(via NaturalNews.com)

(NaturalNews) There are many alternative treatments that have been considered (and still are) as quack medicine by the all-seeing and all-knowing conventional medical model. However, as science and results began to prove their legitimacy, conventional wisdom was forced to acknowledge their efficacy. Acupuncture needles are one of those treatments that have gone from quack science to proven medical device, and scores of people are now experiencing its benefits.

How acupuncture works

In the 1960s, Professor Kim Bong Han and researchers in Korea attempted to prove the existence of meridians in the human body using microdissection techniques. They found evidence of an independent series of fine, duct-like tubes corresponding to the paths of traditional acupuncture meridians.

Fluids in this system sometimes flowed in the same direction as blood and lymph, but also traveled the opposite direction at other times. They realized that these ducts are different from the vascular and lymphatic systems that Western medicine had identified, and that meridians themselves might exist within them.

This meridian system was further validated by a French researcher, Pierre de Vernejoul, who injected radioactive isotopes into the acupoints of humans and tracked their movement with a gamma imaging camera. These isotopes traveled 12 inches along the acupuncture meridians within four to six minutes.

Vernejoul then challenged his work by injecting isotopes into blood vessels in random areas of the body rather than acupoints, and found that they did not travel in the same way at all, illustrating that meridians do contain a system of separate pathways within the body. …

The Language of Our New World – Coding

coders and rock stars

With our lives seemingly run for the most part by technology, and specifically electronic and computer-based technology, it’s not a bad idea for as many people as possible to even know the most rudimentary code. Be it simplistic web design, or full blown programs and computer coding, the human being is moving progressively into a world supported fundamentally by electronic counterparts, who speak a different language, but one that we all can learn and understand.

In the following short video, silicon surfing coders from Facebook co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, to The Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, express their experiences and encouragements for us to get into the field of coding and computer science to keep up with the technological direction that our world is driving towards.

These Things Called GMO’s

GM Baby

A few weeks ago, TSM contributed to spreading the word about a pivotal event and movement of our time: The March Against Monsanto, with a live feed of the NYC protest (feed now offline). At the time, there was very little to no mainstream media coverage, which is almost shocking, yet very revealing at the same time, as millions of anti-GMO protestors took to the streets in their respective countries to get the word out about the genetic mad scientist-corporation, Monsanto.

The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture (UKCA) defines GMO’s as a plant or animal that has been genetically modified through the addition of a small amount of genetic material from other organisms through molecular techniques. On the surface GMO’s seem to be a godsend when it comes to issues like prevention of crop loss due to climate factors and pests and “feeding the world”, however Continue reading

Scientists Confirm Perception and Genes Linked

Becoming an adept meditator does more than simply relax the mind and body. It is in this relaxed mind/body state where the most beneficial and rewarding aspects lie, and it’s not just reserved for surface level changes. Our trillions-strong community of cells feel it too, and scientists have the data to prove that where there is a change in perception and awareness, there is a change in the most foundational levels of our organism.

A study headed by Herbert Benson of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has found that not only do the typical physiological effects of meditation and relaxation play out, but there is a marked change in genes as well. The study was conducted with 26 volunteers, all of whom had no previous meditation experience. Their gene profiles were analyzed prior to teaching them any meditation techniques. Benson and his colleagues found, after eight weeks of 10 to 20 minute relaxation exercises practiced daily, upon analyzing the volunteer’s gene profiles again, that beneficial genes expressed more than non beneficial ones. This lends credence to claims of perception literally shaping one’s health.

From Einstein’s Notebook – Notes For Lecture on Relativity

Everybody knows Einstein, but it’s rare that we get to experience his work directly from the source. These photos are quite possibly the notes of his 4-part lecture which he presented at The Prussian Academy of Sciences in 1915, but this is not confirmed. They could also relate to the lecture he gave at the University of Manchester in 1921 (Einstein’s First Lecture in Britain – The Guardian, 1921), but this is also not confirmed.
