“Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, Read more
Armodafinil: The Real ‘Limitless’ Drug?
In the movie “Limitless,” Bradley Cooper plays Eddie as an unemployed writer who stumbles upon a miracle drug called NZT48 which gives anyone who takes it super-human cognitive abilities by allowing them to use 100% of their brain. Although it’s a myth that we only use 20% of our brains full potential (or whatever other percentage you might have heard), it turns out that there is a real-life version of this drug available that supposedly has similar, although less dramatic Read more

HDR photography is a form of photography that utilizes 2 or more exposures of the same scene to increase the dynamic range of the photo. The results can range from simply emphasizing more detail in shadow and highlight areas to downright surreal/dreamlike effects depending on how the multiple exposures are processed and compressed. I’ve always been drawn to HDR photography that lands on the surreal end of the spectrum. Often, these vivid photographs take on an almost painted look to them.

There is a fine line between an HDR image that captivates and Read more

I’ve been meditating with a form of kundalini meditation fairly consistently now for 7 years. This type of meditation is multidimensional going above and beyond simply providing relaxation and a clear mind – it offers doorways into profound spiritual experience. However, being a very analytical type of person, I’ve no doubt run into my fair share of road blocks. One might think that analyzing any type of paranormal experience would be beneficial. That is partially true; however, such analysis can also impair one’s ability to move through those doorways and progress spiritually.
As humans, by nature we like to ‘figure out’ things. After-all, our evolved brains are the main reason we are at the top of the food chain. The abilities to reason, Read more
The map of the oldest light in the universe shows intriguing deviations from expectations. Will these oddities be explained away or are we at the beginning of a revolution in cosmology?
