Electromagnetic Waves

Are PSI phenomena transmitted by Electromagnetic Waves?

One of the main objections raised against the existence of paranormal phenomena is the lack of a scientific mechanism to explain how they happen. Several scientists have proposed that the carriers are electromagnetic waves, perhaps ultra-low frequency waves. In a recent review article that examines this question, Craig Weiler recounts […]

Transcending the Brain – At least some cases of physical damage are associated with enriched consciousness or cognitive skill

Despite significant advances in neuroscience, consciousness remains a vexing mystery. Because the qualities of experience seem to be irreducible to physical parameters,1 a hypothesis that has been garnering attention is that consciousness is fundamental and spatially unbound, the brain corresponding to a dissociation or localization of its contents.2At first sight, […]

An electric rose by any other name….

That living processes in plants and animals involve electricity has been known for almost two centuries. Around 1900, the biologist J.C. Bose researched how living tissues generate electricity. He went as far as to propose that the flow of electricity in plant tissues mimicked that of animal nerve cells. Perhaps, […]

Paradoxes of Wilber’s Appreciation of the Trump Challenge by Anthony Judge

Introduction Few with a philosophical or psychological inclination have as yet commented extensively on the significance of the election of Donald Trump. The insights of George Lakoff are a valuable exception (Understanding Trump, 23 July 2016), although he holds the view that Trump won by somehow breaking the current rules […]

Bell’s Theorem – Is Everything Predetermined?

Is quantum entanglement real? When two photons are created at the same time, and then separated over some distance, are they still mysteriously in touch with each other, so that what one photon does affects what the other photon does — instantaneously? The concept was first quantified by Bell in […]

Bioelectricity – Nature’s Book of Instructions

One of the today’s unanswered questions in developmental biology, is what causes an organism to grow from an egg and acquire the form that it does. The study of how living forms develop and acquire their final shapes occupied much of Goethe’s life, and inspired his theory of forms.  Since […]

GM Corn

Differences found between GMO and non-GMO corn

A recent article published by Sustainable Food Trust on 22 December 2016 in Farming, points out significant compositional changes between non-GMO corn, and Roundup-resistant GMO corn. The study was led by Dr Michael Antoniou at King’s College London. The report states, In-depth analysis of types of proteins (“proteomics”) and small biochemical molecules (“metabolomics”) revealed major compositional differences […]
