A four-billion-year-old cycling evolutionary engine of creation lifted us improbable and beautiful human beings into existence.
The source of capacity to optimize our experience...
Gabor Maté interviews James Doty on his book: "Into the Magic Shop" a conversation on trauma, healing, magic, and compassion.
In the quest for innovative and functional designs, many scientists are now turning to nature for inspiration.
Scientists at UC Berkeley have placed volunteers in an fMRI scanner and monitored blood flow in their brain activity for two hours, while having them listen to stories. The result: they were able to map which areas respond to different words.
The study of epigenetics has changed how we look at the effect that our genetic inheritance has on our physical and mental health, as well as on that of our children and grandchildren.
A well-documented feature of trauma, one familiar to many, is our inability to articulate what happens to us.
Our own deeply held beliefs and definitions of technology are impeding us from evolving consciously…
New research shows that the physical effects of trauma can be passed down to children and even to grandchildren
Just as artists are driven to create, scientists need to prove that something is as it seems. Their mantra is, don’t tell me, show me through repeated tests that arrive at the same results every time.
In order to understand the true nature of reality, science must first recognize the importance of consciousness, says Dr. Robert Lanza, a stem-cell biologist whose work has earned him high acclaim.
Psychedelic drugs alter consciousness in a profound and novel way that increases the breadth and fluency of cognition. However, until recently, scientists were unable to offer an explanation for how the brain was altered to account for these effects.
Could crossmodal senses be one key to unlock the true nature of physics?
If you were to stand outside the universe—outside both space and time—and look at your life, you would see your birth, your death and every moment in between laid out as distinct points.
by Shawn Radcliffe If you look at a forest through a Darwinian lens, you’ll see individual trees battling…
During recent decades, the apparently solid view of the mechanistic and materialistic world has started to show alarming cracks.
Even before the birth of modern neuroscience, Sigmund Freud theorized that what we call objective reality is actually shaped in part by our subconscious. And he was able to do this simply by observing the behavior of people from the outside.
Underneath the ground exists a vast “social network” that connects trees and other plants to each other.
In recent years scientists have been exploring the effects that stress and emotions have on our cells — in particular, on our chromosomes and mitochondrial DNA.
We live in a reality generated by our brain. From the euphoria of falling in love to the beauty of a newly blossomed flower, what we experience with our senses is a representation of the world, not the world itself.
Some of physics' remaining secrets may actually relent through the human senses.
Is there any behavior that we can say for certain is unique to humans?
Sometimes in life, all the experience and knowledge simmering around in that ol’ consciousness of ours...
For well over a century, scientists have been wrestling with what quantum mechanics has been revealing to us about fundamental reality
Mathematicians and neuroscientists have created the first anatomically accurate model that explains how vision is possible.
With new discoveries in epigenetics now making headlines, many of us are asking an important question: What are my children really inheriting? Can my baggage, the unfinished business I don’t deal with, pass on to my kids?
When people talk about the evolution and development of all that makes humans “unique,” one thing that often gets overlooked is our feelings.
When it comes to the world around us, what we perceive is not always what is actually there.
Across all species, individuals thrive in complex ecological systems, which they rarely have complete knowledge of.
These days people have lost their connection with many powerful elements of energy and nature, sound being one of them—as a means of healing and brain entertainment.
Q: How do quantum phenomena take part in photosynthesis and why is it important?
The heart is essential to our life, pumping oxygenated blood throughout our body. But it’s also the…
In a leafy, seemingly conventional corner of suburban Essex in southeast England ordinary children are learning in the most extraordinary of ways.
Evidence that quantum searches are an ordinary feature of electron behavior may explain the genetic code, one of the greatest puzzles in biology.
Might we humans be the only species on this planet to be truly conscious?
Billions of years ago, an iron nucleus forged in another galaxy was flung into space at close to the…
