Science & Technology
Newly discovered evidence ( year old) seems to shed light on the concept that our brains work on a level dimensions beyond the capabilities of its biochemical ability. Mainstream science widely accepts that consciousness occurs from nothing more than a biochemical process whereas controversial theorists for 20 years claim otherwise. That consciousness is derived from 'elsewhere' and is prevalent in the universe. That the universe is consciousness.

"I have never posted in this section before, but I felt tonight that I should make a stance about something that has been bothering me and that is the so-called intelligence agencies in the United States.

Aliens and UFOs
A few years ago, there was supposedly some kind of papers being held by ATS, that would prove without a doubt, that a UFO conspiracy was afoot in the U.S. government. However, after repeatedly stalling, that thread was closed, and as far as I know, was never answered. This is the one: . Was there ever any resolution? Was it all...
