After a few minutes of simultaneous stroking of both the real and fake hands, the person's brain starts to believe that the fake hand is actually their own. Here's the proof:
Doctors around the world are being faced with children catching the diseases they have been vaccinated against. Rather than diagnosing these children correctly, professionals have discovered that the doctors are giving the diseases new names. This su
Most are familiar with two species of cannabis, sativa and indica, however, there is a third, often overlooked species of this healing plant, known as cannabis ruderalis. Native to Russia and Eastern Europe, ruderalis is different in a number of ways
The concentration of sperm in the ejaculate of men in western countries has fallen by an average of 1.4% a year, leading to an overall drop of just over 52%, say researchers.
That's important, because one of the biggest problems with quantum mechanics ?" and our understanding of it ?" is that every time we measure and observe a quantum system, we destroy it, which doesn't bode well when we want to tease out what's re
IQ studies are normed for every conceivable variable and have been conducted on twins and trans-racial adoptions, but the racial IQ gap persists, including on non-verbal tests such as Raven's Matrices, digit span, and mental chronometry. No Blac
The protein, called GDF-11, was injected into old mice. Old mice, much like humans, develop thickened heart walls as they grow older. The heart was reduced in size and thickness, resembling the healthy hearts of younger mice. A finding by Richard
As the globe collaborates and computing power continues to double every year, we are experiencing an acceleration of possibility. The image above, from Ray Kurzweil's book The Singularity is Near - When Humans Transcend Biology, predicts the compute
Arthritis is one of the most common health conditions nowadays, characterized by pain and inflammation in the joints. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 52.5 million adults and 300,000 children in U.S. were told to have s
We cored two of the huge stones and demonstrated to our satisfaction that they were indeed beachrock.
sun and suggests that missions will have to dig deep underground to find past or present life if it lurks there. The most hospitable environment may lie two or three metres beneath the surface where the soil and any organisms are shielded from intens
biologists have discovered something called Trophic Cascades which are basically a way to understand how ecosystems are connected. When you remove part of an ecological food web, like a whale, then it has cascading effects in how the whole system wor
It sounds crazy, I know. But regardless of your personal bent on the topic, marijuana use for medicinal purposes is now legal in 29 states plus the District of Columbia! That's a lot of places where patients can legally be prescribed, and then purc
There was a record of a find that suggested humanity was on the planet not thousands, but millions of years earlier than the time established by the orthodox scientific consensus. At first I thought this find might be a fake, or a misinterpretatio
"The new remarkable property is that we find that water can exist as two different liquids at low temperatures where ice crystallization is slow", says Anders Nilsson, professor in Chemical Physics at Stockholm University. The breakthrough in the
As revealed by the Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda, Ken Johnston, former Manager of the Data and Photo Control Department at NASA's Lunar Receiving Laboratory during the manned Apollo Lunar Program and Richard Hoagland, a former consultant t
the Buddha speaks of how seven suns will appear in the sky and how the planet earth will eventually be destroyed, after many hundreds and thousands of years, through a series of cataclysmic events which are described below.
It looks like chain mail, but unlike the ancient armor, NASA's fabric isn't welded together. Instead a 3-D printer extrudes stainless steel as a continuous sheet of material with different properties on each side.
Researchers at MIT and elsewhere has developed a new approach to deep learning AI computing, using light instead of electricity, which they say could vastly improve the speed and efficiency of certain deep learning computations
Last year, AlphaGo became the first machine to beat a leading Go professional when it topped the Korean grandmaster Lee Sedol. Considering the extreme complexity of Go-there are more potential positions in the game than atoms in the universe-the
But there have been two major challenges when it comes to studying hydrogen bonds in their purest form: hydrogen is as small as atoms get; and its weak bonds are very easily broken, particularly when it comes to studying single molecules.
I should know, I'm a medical doctor. But first, I am a living human being, and as it turns out my breathing problems were related to my mental health. I was depressed in medical school. To get better, I would need to venture outside the confines of
The results for one of the skulls are now in, and the scientist that did the testing is declaring that this skull represents a "new human-like creature" unlike anything that has ever been discovered before. So are these actually Nephilim skulls?
a shallow barrier corralled more than thirty dolphins within some six square acres. The top of the fence stood so low above the water, all but the most arthritic dolphin could easily hop over it. In fact, several have made good their escape in this
"Science" is being turned into a political weapon. Not the scientific method, but the reified "science" of scientism, exemplified by the politically-motivated March For Science, the politically-biased peer review process, the politically-char
If you could travel back in time 41,000 years to the last ice age, your compass would point south instead of north. That's because for a period of a few hundred years, the Earth's magnetic field was reversed.
The overall effect is that of a magnetic field that appears to travel from one point to another through a dimension that lies outside the conventional three dimensions. The 'wormhole' in this experiment is a sphere made of different layers: an ex
