A Russian scientist is trying to convince people they can change the world simply by using their own energy. He claims that thinking in a certain way can have a positive or negative effect on the surrounding environment. “We are developing the idea that our consciousness is part of the material world and that with our consciousness we can directly influence our world,” said Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, professor of physics at St. Petersburg State Technical University.

To bridge our understanding of the unseen world of energy, scientific experiments are being carried out using a technique called bioelectrophotography. The assumption is that we are constantly emitting energy. Bioelectrophotography aims to capture these energy fields seen as a light around the body — or what some people would call your aura.

Studies at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory have suggested that the mind has the subtle capacity to influence the output of devices known as Random Event Generators (REGs).

The video below is a very brief synopsis of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research laboratory of Princeton University, whose research into mind-matter interaction forms the foundation of Psyleron Technology. Watch interviews with key PEAR lab staff, as they explain their experiments, including random event generators, their findings, and finally some of their implications.

PARIS – Oamenii de știință care au examinat rămăşiţele lui Napoleon Bonaparte, sunt “profund nedumeriţi” de descoperirea unui microprocesor lung de jumătate inch încorporat în craniul său. Ei spun ca acest obiect misterios ar putea fi un implant străin – care sugerează că împăratul francez a fost odată răpit de un OZN ! “Consecinţele posibile ale acestei descoperiri sunt aproape prea mari pentru a înţelege”, a declarat dr. Andre Dubois, care a făcut revelaţia uimitoare într-un jurnal medical francez. “Până acum, fiecare indicaţie a fost faptul că victimele de răpiri străine sunt oameni obişnuiţi” care nu joacă niciun rol în evenimentele din lume. “Acum avem dovezi convingătoare ca extratereștrii au acţionat în trecut pentru a influenţa istoria omenirii – şi pot continua să facă si acum acest lucru!” Dr. Dubois a făcut uimitoarea descoperire în timp ce studia scheletul exhumat al lui Napoleon, pe un grant de 140.000 de dolari de la guvernul francez. “Am vrut sa aflu dacă a suferit de o tulburare de hipofiza, care ar fi contribuit la statura sa mica”, a explicat el. Dar, cercetătorul a găsit ceva mult mai extraordinar: “Pe cand examinam interiorul craniului, mâna mea a periato proeminenţă mică. “Apoi m-am uitat la zona sub o lupă – şi am fost uimit să constat că obiectul a fost un fel de super-avansat microcip.” De la măsura de dezvoltare a oaselor in jurul cipului, expertul crede că a fost implantat atunci când Bonaparte a fost tânăr. “Napoleon a dispărut din vedere pentru o perioadă de câteva zile în luna iulie 1794, când avea 25 de ani. El, mai târziu a susţinut că ar fi fost ţinut prizonier în timpul loviturii de stat Thermidorian -, dar nu există nici o înregistrare de arestare . Eu cred că este atunci când a avut loc răpirea. ” Din acel moment, ascensiunea lui Napoleon a fost meteorica. Până în anul următor, el a fost pus în fruntea armatei franceze in Italia. În mod miraculos, el a fost capabil să transforme înfometaţi, LAR tag-ul trupei într-o forţă de luptă de top-notch pentru a – i zdrobi pe italieni.
În 1804, după un şir de victorii uimitoare, generalul este încoronat împărat al Franţei – şi imperiul său în curând avea să se extindă pentru a include ceea ce este acum Germania şi Austria, precum Elveţia, Italia şi Danemarca. “Napoleon a folosit strategii militare, cu mai mult de o sută de ani înainte faţă de timpului său”, a spus dr. Dubois. “Poate că implantul a îmbunătăţit abilităţile sale într-un fel.”
Implantul ar putea explica, de asemenea, obiceiul deja celebru a lui Napoleon de a ţine mâna pe inima , a adăugat el. “Este posibil ca dispozitivul să fi fost afectat de semnalele electrice de la creier la inima lui.” Până în momentul înfrângerii de la Waterloo -ul britanic în 1815, Napoleon a schimbat faţa Europei. “Ce istorie ar fi avut occidentul dacă nu ar fi avut loc intervenția străină, putem ghici numai”, a observat dr. Dubois. “Astfel, nu putem şti dacă au acţionat pentru a ajuta omenirea sau ne face rău.”

1. Quadriplegic Uses Her Mind to Control Her Robotic Arm


At the University of Pittsburgh, the neurobiology department worked with 52-year-old Jan Scheuermann over the course of 13 weeks to create a robotic arm controlled only by the power of Scheuermann’s mind.
The team implanted her with two 96-channel intracortical microelectrodes. Placed in the motor cortex, which controls all limb movement, the integration process was faster than anyone expected. On the second day, Jan could use her new arm with a 3-D workspace. By the end of the 13 weeks, she was capable of performing complex tasks with seven-dimensional movement, just like a biological arm.
To date, there have been no negative side effects.

2. DARPA Robot Can Traverse an Obstacle Course


Once the robot figures out how to do that without all the wires, humanity is doomed.
DARPA was also hard at work this year making robots to track humans and run as fast as a cheetah, which seems like a great combination with no possibility of horrible side effects.

5. Invisibility Cloak Technology Took a Huge Leap Forward


British Columbia company HyperStealth Biotechnology showed a functioning prototype of its new fabric to the U.S. and Canadian military this year. The material, called Quantum Stealth, bends light waves around the wearer without the use of batteries, mirrors, or cameras. It blocks the subject from being seen by visual means but also keeps them hidden from thermal scans and infrared.

6. Spray-On Skin


ReCell by Avita Medical is a medical breakthrough for severe-burn victims. The technology uses a postage stamp–size piece of skin from the patient, leaving the donor site with what looks like a rug burn. Then the sample is mixed with an enzyme harvested from pigs and sprayed back onto the burn site. Each tiny graft expands, covering a space up to the size of a book page within a week. Since the donor skin comes from the patient, the risk of rejection is minimal.

7. James Cameron Reached the Deepest Known Point in the Ocean


Cameron was the first solo human to reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench. At 6.8 miles deep, it is perhaps more a more alien place to scientists than some foreign planets are. The 2.5-story “vertical torpedo” sub descended over a period of two and a half hours before taking a variety of samples.

8. Stem Cells Could Extend Human Life by Over 100 Years


When fast-aging elderly mice with a usual lifespan of 21 days were injected with stem cells from younger mice at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Pittsburgh, the results were staggering. Given the injection approximately four days before they were expected to die, not only did the elderly mice live — they lived threefold their normal lifespan, sticking around for 71 days. In human terms, that would be the equivalent of an 80-year-old living to be 200.

9. 3-D Printer Creates Full-Size Houses in One Session


The D-Shape printer, created by Enrico Dini, is capable of printing a two-story building, complete with rooms, stairs, pipes, and partitions. Using nothing but sand and an inorganic binding compound, the resulting material has the same durability as reinforced concrete with the look of marble. The building process takes approximately a fourth of the time as traditional buildings, as long as it sticks to rounded structures, and can be built without specialist knowledge or skill sets.

10. Self-Driving Cars Are Legal in Nevada, Florida, and California


Google started testing its driverless cars in the beginning of 2012, and by May, Nevada was the first state to take the leap in letting them roam free on the roads. With these cars logging over 300,000 autonomous hours so far, the only two accidents involving them happened when they were being manually piloted.

11. Voyager I Leaves the Solar System


Launched in 1977, Voyager I is the first manmade object to fly beyond the confines of our solar system and out into the blackness of deep space. It was originally designed to send home images of Saturn and Jupiter, but NASA scientists soon realized eventually the probe would float out into the great unknown. To that end, a recording was placed on Voyager I with sounds ranging from music to whale calls, and greetings in 55 languages.

14. Chimera Monkeys Created from Multiple Embryos


While all the donor cells were from rhesus monkeys, the researchers combined up to six distinct embryos into three baby monkeys. According to Dr. Mitalipov, “The cells never fuse, but they stay together and work together to form tissues and organs.” Chimera species are used in order to understand the role specific genes play in embryonic development and may lead to a better understanding of genetic mutation in humans.

15. Artificial Leaves Generate Electricity


Using relatively inexpensive materials, Daniel G. Nocera created the world’s first practical artificial leaf. The self-contained units mimic the process of photosynthesis, but the end result is hydrogen instead of oxygen. The hydrogen can then be captured into fuel cells and used for electricity, even in the most remote locations on Earth.

17. The Higgs-Boson Particle Was Discovered


Over the summer, multinational research center CERN confirmed it had discovered a particle that behaved enough like a Higgs boson to be given the title. For scientists, this meant there could be a Higgs field, similar to an electromagnetic field. In turn, this could lead to the scientists’ ability to interact with mass the same way we currently do with magnetic fields.

19. Diamond Planet Discovered


An exoplanet made entirely of diamonds was discovered this year by an international research team. Approximately five times the size of Earth, the small planet had mass similar to that of Jupiter. Scientists believe the short distance from its star coupled with the exoplanet’s mass means the planet, remnants of another star, is mostly crystalline carbon.

20. Eye Implants Give Sight to the Blind


Two blind men in the U.K. were fitted with eye implants during an eight-hour surgery with promising results. After years of blindness, both had regained “useful” vision within weeks, picking up the outlines of objects and dreaming in color. Doctors expect continued improvement as their brains rewire themselves for sight.

Led by the National Botanic Garden’s head of research and conversation, a database of DNA for all 1,143 native species of Wales has been created. With the use of over 5,700 barcodes, plants can now be identified by photos of their seeds, roots, wood, or pollen. The goal is to help researchers track things such as bee migration patterns or how a plant species encroaches on a new area. The hope is to eventually barcode both animal and plant species across the world.

26. First Planet with FOUR Suns Discovered


Discovered by amateur astronomers, the planet closely orbits a pair of stars, which in turn orbit another set of more distant stars. It’s approximately the size of Neptune, so scientists are still trying to work out how the planet has avoided being pulled apart by the gravitational force of that many stars.

And what do you think? Which one is the most important?

Numit şi “miracolul Mike”, cocoşul a supravieţuit după ce proprietarul a vrut să-l taie pentru cină. I-a retezat capul, însă pasărea nu a murit. Mulţi au crezut că este o farsă, astfel că fermierul a apelat la Universitatea din Utah din Salt Lake City pentru a stabili veridicitatea.

Era 10 septembrie 1945 când fermierul Lloyd Olsen din Fruita, Colorado (SUA), a mers în curte pentru a prinde o pasăre care urma să fie trasformată în supă. Bărbatul a prins-o şi a vrut să-i taie capul cu toporişca, însă i-a ratat doar jugulara lăsând o ureche şi o mare parte a creierului intactă. Conform unor relatări, în ziua decapitării eşuate, Mike a dormit cu capul său sub aripă.

După ce cocoşul a refuzat să moară şi chiar se ţinea după celelate păsări deşi nu mai avea cap, proprietarul s-a gândit să aibă grijă de el în continuare: îl hrănea în fiecare zi cu pipeta direct prin esofag.

Cocoşul fără cap a devenit imediat celebru. A plecat în turnee în care erau prezentate animale cu anomalii şi a apărut în paginile unor reviste prestigioase, precum Time şi Life. Mike a murit în martie 1947.

Noul Hotel Marina Bay Sands Singapore impresionează în primul rând prin prin arhitectura extrem de spectaculoasă. Format din trei turnuri de 57 de etaje fiecare, unite în partea superioară de o punte de observație de un hectar, hotelul oferă 2561 de camere și apartamente, propriul muzeu, un cazino de mari dimensiuni și zeci de restaurante.

Deschis în 2010 de compania din spatele celebrului hotel Las Vegas Sands, Marina Bay Sands a costat în total peste opt miliarde de dolari și a fost proiectat de firma Arup, responsabilă pentru lucrări la Opera din Sidney și la Centrul Național pentru Sporturi Acvatice de la Beijing, celebrul “cub” de la Jocurile Olimpice din anul 2008. Conform arhitectului canadian Moshe Safdie, proiectantul principal al ansamblului, designul clădirii a fost inspirat de forma unor seturi de cărți de joc.

Vizibilă de la mai mulți kilometri depărtare, o punte de 10 000 de metri pătrați unește cei trei zgarâie-nori la o înălțime de aproape 200 de metri, o construcție unică în lume prin dimensiunile sale și prin forma deosebită pe care o dă construcției. Decorată cu zeci de arbori, terasa găzduiește cea mai mare piscină suspendată din lume, cu o lățime de 146 de metri și un volum de aproape 1,5 milioane de litri de apă. Provocările inginerești pentru construcția piscinei au fost impresionante, dat fiind că, în mod natural, turnurile oscilează cu până la jumătate de metru în direcții diferite, sub forța vântului.

Cele 2561 de camere sunt distribuite în trei categorii, în funcție de etajul la care sunt poziționate. Prima categorie, Atrium, cuprinde camerele situate la primele 22 de etaje ale celor trei turnuri, iar a doua categorie, Horizon, cuprinde camerle de la etajele superioare. Ambele clase oferă trei tipuri de camere, diferențiate prin suprafața maximă: Deluxe, Premier și Grand. Cele mai exclusiviste camere, din categoria Club, sunt poziționate la cele mai înalte etaje ale hotelului și oferă unele dintre cele mai spectaculoase panorame ale orașului Singapore.

Marina Bay Sans oferă nu mai puțin de zece tipuri de apartamente, cu suprafețe între 90 și 629 de metri pătrați. Cel mai luxos apartament, numit Chairman Suite, este situat pe terasa de la etajul 57, la o înălțime de 200 de metri, și include trei dormitoare, fiecare cu balcon propriu, un birou complet dotat, o cameră home-theatre și o cameră de biliard. Oaspeții sunt serviți în permanență de o echipă de majordomi.

Una dintre principalele atracții ale Marina Bay Sands este cazinoul cu 500 de mese de joc și peste 1500 de aparate electronice. Cu o combinație de jocuri de noroc occidentale și orientale, cazinoul oferă și posibilitatea organizării de jocuri personalizate în oricare dintre cele 30 de saloane private. Posibilitățile de petrecere ale timpului liber în cadrul hotelului sunt completate de două săli de spectacole cu 4000 de locuri fiecare, peste 50 de restaurante, un patinoar acoperit și un centru comercial cu sute de magazine.

Dincolo de distracție, Marina Bay Sands oferă oaspeților posiblitatea de a descoperi lucruri noi la Muzeul de Artă și Știință din cadrul complexului. La ora actuală, pe lista evenimentelor se numără o expoziție dedicată lui Van Gogh și alta creațiilor suprarealiste ale lui Salvador Dali. Cei care doresc să exploreze cultura orientală pot admira o colecție de artefacte din epoca Tang, recuperate recent de pe o epavă din apropierea Indoneziei.
