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. While whether the universe is consciousness or not is out of scope of this OP, what has been proven is that the brain, or our entire bodies for that reason, is a macroscopic quantum system....

Nere's a chart depicting the areas of the world momst likely to survive climate change as stated by a group called Eco Experts based on data from the Notre Dame Global Adaptation (ND-Gain) Index. The infographic doesn't paint a pretty picture for Africa's survival as the climate changes. " Climate change is real, and it's coming. But we're all going to be affected in different ways. How will your country fare? The folks at Eco Experts put together a great infographic based on data from the Notre Dame Global Adaptation (ND-Gain) Index, an annual ranking of which countries are best poised to adapt to a warming world. While the maps provide a great...

"Asteroid 2004 BL86 passed Earth today at 16:19 UTC (11:19 a.m. EST). This "movie" of the asteroid was generated from our radar data. Twenty individual images were used. Radar observations allow scientists to better measure an asteroid's size, rotation and location. As a bonus, radar observations of 2004 BL86...
