With the help of Monsanto money, Neil DeGrasse Tyson has launched a new film in an attempt to persuade the public to accept genetically modified foods (GMO’s). It isn’t the first time Neil has spoken out in favor of GMO’s, but he’s stepping it up to a whole new level with Food Evolution, which hit theaters across America on June 23rd.
The film is all about promoting the idea that the science is settled around genetic engineering, but just two years ago 300 scientists signed a paper bluntly titled ‘No scientific consensus on GMO safety.’ Much like the dated consensus that tobacco products are safe, Tyson apparently believes that a consensus on GMO’s only includes scientists who already agree with him.

Defining where someone else begins and you end seems like an odd thing to do, but if you are an empath, separation of the “Self” from others, even with all the talk of accepting our connectedness as part of the One, is crucial. Here’s a little insight into why setting personal boundaries is so critical, and why empaths may have an especially difficult time doing it. Continue reading As an Empath, Do You Have Healthy Boundaries?

For thousands of years, medicinal herbs and plants have been used to heal and strengthen the body and mind. So much so, in fact, that researchers and scientists have taken great interest in studying their effects in recent decades. And while this has generally been a positive thing, much of the ancient knowledge regarding the energetic and spiritual effects of these plants has been lost or buried in the process due to the simple fact that it is often difficult or impossible to measure with modern research equipment. Continue reading 3 Spiritually Activating Herbs For Expanding Consciousness and Supercharging Health

For the past several years, scientists have been publishing papers claiming to have discovered what a déjà vu truly is.
One paper was published in 2008, a “report by Colorado State University psychologist Anne M. Cleary, published in Current Directions in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science,” according to Psychological Science. If you’d like to read what they had to say, click this link. Continue reading Déjà Vu is the Epitome of Special. Science Currently Has No Explanation

(ANTIMEDIA) — “Years of complex operations and the ongoing demands of units in the field have left the armed forces struggling to maintain both operational capacity and high levels of readiness, according to a recent report from the Government Accountability Office.”
That’s the opening paragraph of an article published by Business Insider last week. The piece, titled “The US military is struggling to keep up with all its responsibilities,” could just as easily been titled “The American Empire is overextended,” as it thoroughly details the GAO’s negative assessment of the current state of the U.S. war machine.

It’s funny, but when asked about things learnt that have served to be the greatest contribution to their lives most people will not mention anything from school days. Have you noticed this? I can say that the things I have learnt which have served as a platform for personal growth did not come from the classroom.
Basically, the education system with its tunnel-minded curriculum frequently taught by blinkered, know-it-all academics, having fallen for the “I’m an expert” trap, is designed to programme young people to fit into boxes: work for corporations (and suchlike) when they graduate. In a way, that means you’re going to have to make up for an absence of really learning about life! Continue reading 7 Things They Never Told Me At School – But Could Have

Could this world, this existence as human beings on planet Earth, be some type of prison? I’m starting to get the feeling that Earth is some kind of lesson learning place, some kind of “hell,” a “time-out session” for bad children.
That doesn’t suggest that every single aspect of this existence is hellish, or that there isn’t beauty in life, but consider this.
If we just look at the most basic, inherent ways life on Earth functions, we might be able to notice a few things. Continue reading Is Earth a Prison?

Neuroscientists and psychologists all around the world have put great effort into investigating the functions and differences of the left and right brain.
The existence of differences between left brain and right brain have been proven by many studies. Especially valuable are the observations that have been made on brain injuries. Continue reading Left and Right Brain — The Surprising Truth [Infographic]
