Do we have Free Will? An Update on Libet’s Experiment

The existence of “free will” was thrown into question in a famous study conducted by Benjamin Libet in the 1980s in which he demonstrated that his subjects responded to stimuli before they were even aware of them. A person’s brain records precursor activity to moving an arm before that person […]

A Quantum Shift? – Where we seem to be now on Life after Death

With over 100 years of research into the nature of death and survival of consciousness, a more sophisticated way of looking at the evidence seems to be emerging. Based on a number of interviews and wide reading, Lance Butler outlines a new understanding based on science as well as spiritual […]

From Particles to People

TAM 2012 (James Randi Educational Foundation annual meeting, Las Vegas) …I was fortunate enough to find myself last week in Geneva, at CERN, the home of the Large Hadron Collider, watching the experimental physicists there announce the discovery of the Higgs Boson – or at least something very much like […]

According to modern pharmacology, there can be no biochemical basis for homeopathy because substances diluted out of existence should not have any effects, let alone therapeutic ones. So to practice or partake of homeopathy is tantamount to believing that nothing has the power to do something, i.e., homeopathy is magic. […]

Dowsing: A Review

This reflects the fact that it was traditionally known as water divining and was a commercially important means of locating water and minerals, but it is often used today to detect a much wider range of apparently ‘unknowable’ information, from […]

Seeking for whom the bell tolls: Exploring mind-matter interactions on a global scale

Is there a global mind? Could it be detected quantitatively? In an empirical approach to this question, over the last decade a half-dozen researchers have examined the outputs of electronic noise-based, truly random number generators (RNG) before, during and after highly focused or coherent group events. (See video). The group […]

From Water Memory to Digital Biology

‘And the demonstration* of all these things is so certain that, though experience apparently contradicts them we will have more faith in our reason than in our senses.’ René Descartes, Principles of Philosophy *(springing from the mind, inspired by God) The principal mission of DigiBio is to bring a clear […]
