Science: Gut Feelings Are Much More Than A Feeling

Everybody experiences ‘feelings’ that seem to originate from our abdominal region. That sinking sensation before addressing a room of people, ‘butterflies in your stomach’, or that awful twisting feeling from negative situations, are a few of the common experiences. While a mostly unexplained phenomenon, humans have learned to trust and acknowledge these feelings. They are highly relatable to our intuition, growling our subconscious thoughts and feelings when our mind is preoccupied.

Your nervous center can be broken up into your central and peripheral systems. The central is your brain, where we make use of all of those awesome cognitive processes. The peripheral is where impulses are sent from the brain to various systems and functions. Researchers have been probing the concept of these ‘gut feelings’ and finding out we may need to re vamp the peripheral nervous system’s definition.

A dense network has been found in the abdominal cavity. This network consists of over one hundred million neurons and is called the Enteric Nervous System (ENS). Dr. Jay Pasricha, Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Neurogastroenterology, has conducted internationally renowned research into the topic. The Dr. explains,

“Its main role is controlling digestion, from swallowing to the release of enzymes that break down food to the control of blood flow that helps with nutrient absorption to elimination. The enteric nervous system doesn’t seem capable of thought as we know it, but it communicates back and forth with our big brain—with profound results.”

There are studies across the world being conducted to better understand the ENS and its relation to the rest of the body. There are prevailing suppositions that this system is related to Irritable Bowl Syndrome, metabolism control, and may be a potential way for us to reduce risks type two diabetes.

By understanding the ENS system more we will learn more about neurology as a whole but also more about the intricacies of the human body as a whole. Uncovering the secrets between this connection and our emotions will prove invaluable.

There’s Something About Karma That Many People Don’t Realize

I’m not condemning any spiritual methodology. I respect that everyone has their own experiences and from those experiences beautifully unique theories and mentalities surrounding the mystery of human life. In that vein of respect and acknowledgement, I would like to point out the misunderstandings surroundings Karma. Karma has been equated to a system, where you ‘get what you put in’ or ‘reap what you sow’. This is true to an extant, but the ‘pay off’ or ‘reaping’ happens in another life time. There is also a system of intertwining energies and intentions.

‘Karma in Buddhism is action. Action in the form of the thinking. Thinking is acting. Speaking is acting. And doing things is acting. And every act has a result. That is Karma. And nothing can be lost. It continues always. The shameful action continues and if you perform positive Karma, it will continue very well if you help other people.’ Thich Nhat Hahn on Tibetan styled Karma.

 The important distinction is that your actions be selfless. You cannot preform kindnesses and compassionate acts with the expectation of expecting anything in return. SELFLESS. You cannot trick the system. If you do something ‘good’ to get ‘good’ back, this is an inherently selfish action, and in the end unproductive. As we move forward in this discussion, I would like to take some of the emotional content out of this subject. Good and bad are highly charged words, this gives them too much ‘weight’ outside of their very subjective meanings. The more emotion and energy we poor into words and concepts, they change from their original context into personalized behemoths of our mind. Lets not fight any giants today.

Chopping the scales from ‘good’ and ‘bad’ I offer the terms ‘productive’ and ‘unproductive’. The wheel of Samsara (suffering) is always spinning. Nothing can or should ever even attempt to stop it. We encounter suffering and have two options. Turn it into a productive or unproductive experience. Learn from the mistakes we make, or continue to repeat them; lamenting our station in life. Forgive those who have hurt you or keep the cycle of unnecessary pain going.

As you go through your current life and form, you are blessed with a multitude of experiences that you can be productive or unproductive with. How you choose to live your life will dictate your next. A person who has spread pain and violence, has spent his or her energy and potential unproductively. They have limited their experiences and closed their mind. Their next life will not be a punishment, there is already enough suffering in the world. It will be another chance, from a different perspective that will encourage that entity to open their minds and hearts.

According to Karma, we should stop trying to control everything in life. Deal with what you are handed and help your neighbor when you can. The eventual sum of your actions are beyond what you can understand in your mortal form. Don’t limit your future by mixing in your fears and desires. As an infinite being in the ever expanding universe, you have so many more options and avenues of influence than I’d dare try to name. Be careful of you you respond to suffering and remember that the more you operate out of the idea of ‘you’ the better you will feel.

What Is The True Purpose Of The Pineal Gland? Here’s The Straight Dope

The pineal gland is relatively small hormone producing organ found in vertebrate brains. This endocrine gland can be found in every animal on the planet that has a spine. This organ produces melatonin, melatonin derivatives, seratonin and DMT (N-Dimethyltryptamine). Melatonin is related to our natural sleep patterns (circadian rhythm). DMT is recognized as the the Spirit Molecule. It’s properties are widely discussed, though little is known. It is found in every living creature on our planet. The fact that every animal (including humans) has this chemical present  adds a level of connectivity. There are quantum properties of DMT that are very interesting as well.

This pea sized hormonal organ effects us in a major but mostly unnoticed way. The gland is located at the the center of the sixth chakra, Ajna. This energy spiraling out of this organ is known as the ‘third eye’. This chakra houses intuition and other ‘intangible thoughts’. The pineal gland powers our ability to seeing through false formations, and see the truth of a situation where none may be apparent.

If you are trying to nurture your pineal gland, you’ll want to stay away from fluoride. This common household ingredient calcifies this part of your brain!

Shock Finding: Archaeologists Discover 10,000 Year Old Paintings Of “Alien” Visitors

As we have more and more time accumulated looking under rock formations and digging through rubble, we find more answers to the questions we ave about our past. A lot of discoveries end up forming new questions but at least our questions are more specific with newly attained information. In Chhattisgarh, India, there are cave drawings dating back 10,000 years. While art in every form has its own value, it was what was depicted that caught international attention. The pictures are drawings of beings missing their noses and mouths. They are holding strange objects that have yet to be identified. They are shown next to obviously human figures which makes the distinction all the more obvious.

While the international community is finding these for the first time, local residents have know about them for generations. Chandeli and Gotitola are villages nearest the finding. Some of the local residents and their ancestors even worshiped this archaeological wonder. Stories have been passed down about the ‘rohela people’ (the little ones).  They narrate that the rohela would come out of the sky in ’round shaped’ objects. They would sometimes take some of the villagers, and the villagers were never seen again.

The paintings are in amazing shape for their age. Preserved in caves and in protected over hangs, we can see the craftsmanship and detail well. There is another image of a saucer like object that has fans coming off its hull. It is hard to look at the image and imagine anything but an UFO.

‘We can’t refuse the possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things,’ lead archaeologist, JR Bhagat, warns. ‘The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject.’

He is very serious when he says more research is needed. These cave paintings are in the Charama region, Kanker district in the tribal Bastar region. Bhagat was called in to verify that it was a legitimate find, which he confirmed. There are no specialists of any kind in the region. While invitations to study the paintings have been sent, no solid plans of study have been announced.

Russian Scientist Discovers How Your Aura Impacts The Health Of Others

Auras are the projection of energy stemming from our bodies. If you pay any mind to chakras, then auras are the out of body energy projections that our chakras emit. Auras are seen as ovals or bubbles of light and colors. Not everyone can see these projections though it can be done through training to that end. As aura’s are a real projection that scientists can mark and observe, there are properties that auras carry.They are highly magnetic. Even as you sit down to read this you are projecting a tangible, magnetic energy that is interacting with the people and objects around you.

Aura’s color, strength and manner of effect differ from person to person. It’s sort of like your spiritual ‘finger print’. As you grow and evolve so to will your aura. Your thoughts and emotions effect your aura greatly. The human heart and brain are the main creators of electromagnetic energies. As our attitude changes so do the waves but out by these organs, Your mood can change the way your heart beats, which changes your energy projection, which changes your aura.

Rolin McCratey, Ph.D, and Director of Research at the Institute of  was quoted as saying,

“Emotional information is actually included and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself, and what we do individually really does count and matters. “

Around the world, at Russia’s St. Petersburg State Technical University, Dr. Konstantin Korotkov is trying to build a tested bridge between auras and the projector’s health. He has created a special device that reads the bio energy of living organisms and their surroundings. This device (GDV) takes an electron cloud snapshot of the subject in a millisecond and prints out the results. This image is compared to other healthy subjects. From this comparison specialists can get an idea of where to investigate potential hidden disease.

The idea is revolutionary. Certain diseases take years to manifest themselves but with this technology we could be able to spot it all the faster. The body is aware when disease or sickness is creeping on it, and projects warning signs.

Drugs Have Been Legal In Portugal For 15 Years. The Results Might Surprise You

In 2001, Portugal decriminalized drug use in their nation. Critics predicted certain doom for the country. Fifteen years later critics don’t really have much to say. Portugal was facing record high levels of drug overdoses, and AIDS related death. Their version of war on drugs was hemorrhaging money via higher sentences, bigger investigations and prosecutions. As the government tried to tighten its grip, the drug use was getting worse.

Events took a turn for the better once the government of Portugal stopped viewing the problem as a law enforcement issue and started to explore it as a health concern. While at the time it was considered a controversial decision, it made and makes a lot of sense. If the people of your nation are suffering physical, emotionally, and financially due to a specific set of chemicals, how is that not a health concern?

“Eventually, the Portuguese government moved responsibility for drug-control issues from the Justice Department to the Ministry of Health. It was a striking decision; in other countries, drug abuse has remained primarily a matter for law-enforcement agencies. In the past forty years, American police officers have arrested millions of nonviolent drug offenders, and hundreds of thousands have been prosecuted. Rather than try to eliminate drug abuse, Portugal’s approach, commonly known as “harm reduction,” attempts to minimize the negative consequences for society.” (source)

Portugal is not a ‘Wild West’ for drug dealers. Supplier’s are still prosecuted heavily for their crime of severely negative social influence. The focus was taken away damning the addict. For people caught with no more than a ten-day supply of marijuana, heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, or crystal methamphetamine, there is no arrests, no prosecutions, no prison sentences. Dealers are still sent to prison, or fined, or both, but, for the past decade, Portugal has treated drug abuse solely as a public-health issue.

This under taking had three main objectives.  To reduce frequency of sharing needles and syringes, to change the general public’s negative attitudes toward drug users, and to facilitate safe and sometimes free addiction prevention and treatment. Stations were set up to give addicts easy access to clean paraphernalia and safely dispose of bio hazards. Public relation campaigns were launched to inform the public. Drug treatment centers became a focus of development.

Drug use has fallen since 2001. New HIV cases of drug users has significantly decreased too. But a reduction in drug overdose deaths in Portugal is where the results really shine — the country now has the second-lowest rate in the European Union.

The amount of deaths is astonishing. For every 1,000,000 adults in Portugal, there are 3 drug overdose deaths. Compare this to 10.2 per million in the Netherlands, 44.6 per million in the U.K. and up to 126.8 per million in Estonia. They are literally saving thousands of lives.

It is amazing how this open handed approach to drug use has revolutionized what was once a drug and drug related crime riddled country. Empathy and information were the main components of Portugal’s approach and it should be a shining example to other countries.
