7 Foods That Are Bad For Your Brain

By Lizette Borreli / Source: Medical Daily

We have all heard the touted benefits of "smart" foods that can boost our brain power by increasing alertness, memory, and even brain cell production.

While we try to eat our way to good physical and mental health, we often ingest willingly, and unknowingly, foods that can have an impact on our brain development. These "dumb" foods (and food additives), ranging from monosodium glutamate (MSG) to tofu, can be toxic to our brain cells even in small doses, affecting our alertness, memory, mood, and nervous system.

5 Impossible Goals You Should Stop Going After

By Noah St. John, Author of The Book of Afformations

What is an impossible goal? An impossible goal is just what it sounds like: a goal that can't be accomplished by a human being.

Now I know that you're not used to hearing something like that on a personal growth blog. You're used to hearing things like, "If you can conceive it, you can achieve it," and "There's nothing you can't do when you set your mind to it."

That's all well and good for the majority of the goals we set. However, the truth is that there are some things that you and I actually CAN'T do.

Top 10 Psychological Experiments That Went Horribly Wrong

Psychology as we know it is a relatively young science, but since its inception it has helped us to gain a greater understanding of ourselves and our interactions with the world.

Many psychological experiments have been valid and ethical, allowing researchers to make new treatments and therapies available, and giving other insights into our motivations and actions.

Sadly, others have ended up backfiring horribly — ruining lives and shaming the profession. Here are ten psychological experiments that spiraled out of control.

How to Be the Luckiest Person on the Planet

By James Altucher, Author of Choose Yourself

I told my dad, "I'm a lucky guy." He said, "But are you lucky in love?" I was six years old. Love was the most disgusting thing in the world to me. What the hell was he talking about? Love was living in another neighborhood at that time. Or another planet. It would be years before Love stuck its ugly little nose into my house and said, "hello, anyone here?

Luck was all about rolling the dice. Or finding a quarter on the ground. Or seeing a double rainbow after a quick storm.

But now I'm different. I'm constantly checking in and out of the Hospital of No Luck. I'm older. I need luck to be constantly transfused into me or I run out of it. Without luck, I'm dead. For me, good luck equals happiness.

Martial Arts For Your Mind

By Matthew Barkevich

Picture yourself with an incredible amount of energy and walking into a room. Do you think people would notice? Of course they would, people and animals are hardwired to respond to POWER.

It is a fundamental law of nature. If a lion walked into a room, you'd take notice because you respect its power, energy, and abilities. The people that are not aware are usually victims and consequently they also miss much of the BEAUTY in life.

How do you attain such powers? Proper breathing is the 1st step.

The Strangest Secret in the World

The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale has sold over a million copies and is the only gold record ever achieved for the spoken word. Its message is simple, yet powerful, and it became the basis for the Nightingale-Conant Corporation. Many thousands of people have attributed this recording with turning their lives around and helping them make their fortunes in the world.
And the secret is… “We become what we think about.”

Money is Your Reward for Serving Others

By Bob Proctor, Creator of The Science of Getting Rich

There is a very real possibility that everything you and I have been taught about how to earn money is so far from the truth that it's almost comical.

Earning money has nothing to do with age, formal education, gender or geography. It has nothing to do with past experience or your formal years of education or your level of intellect.

There are individuals who are functionally illiterate who have become multimillionaires, while there are others who are absolutely brilliant and they are broke. Virtually anyone can be taught how to earn millions of dollars and yet the sad truth is that 97 out of every 100 people are born, live their entire lives, and die without ever learning how to earn money. To perpetuate this ridiculous problem, their ignorance is passed along from one generation to the next.

Earthing: The Scientific Benefits of Grounding Your Body

The surface of the Earth holds subtle health-boosting energy. All we have to do is touch it and become truly alive. In the documentary film Grounded, you can see this amazing phenomenon transform the life of people who had been struggling with health issues like chronic pain, and one man who had been wheelchair-bound for decades is able to walk again.

Even plants are drastically impacted when they are taken away from the Earth's natural energy. Yet, the act of grounding, or Earthing, as it's sometimes called, isn't really an unusual phenomenon at all. It's actually a natural act that virtually every living creature does instinctively.

Live Long. Stay Healthy. Join the Amortals.

By Catherine Mayer / Source: The Observer    

My father was well beyond the danger point of a dive when a weight slipped from his jacket and spiralled downwards into the gloom.

We had arrived at the quayside to discover our Red Sea pleasure boat laden with US soldiers on leave from peacekeeping duties in the Gulf. The platoon's NCO proved to be a seasoned diver. His charges were novices. A 19-year-old private from Arkansas, paired with my father, then 70, for the safety check and first dive of the day, failed to secure the weights that are essential in controlling a diver's surfacing speed.

The mishap illustrated one of many rules that the sea subverts: on dry land a healthy teenager will invariably outperform a septuagenarian in any physical exercise. Underneath the waves, age is as fluid as water. Confronted with a problem, the soldier lost control of his buoyancy, flailing like a fish in a net, while the older man, an emeritus professor of theatre history, calmly recalibrated their dive plan, communicating the change in the limited vocabulary of scuba sign language. Only once we were back on board was the natural order restored, as the senior grouched about the teen, who stretched out in the heat, blithely unaware of the animus he had attracted.

But the natural order is itself in flux. My father still dives in his 80s, still lectures, researches, writes books. People are living longer, sometimes much longer. Across the developed world the average lifetime has lengthened by 30 years since the beginning of the 20th century. The fastest-growing segment of the world population is the very old, with the number of centenarians up from a few thousand in 1950 to 340,000 in 2010 and projected to reach nearly 6 million by 2050. You might have thought we'd use all that extra time to squeeze in a few additional stages of life – from the seven ages of man observed by Shakespeare, when life expectancy at birth was below 40, to maybe 10, 12, 15 stages now that a man born in Stratford-upon-Avon looks forward to an average span of 76.9 years.

Mind Control Summer Camp

In a Greek Orthodox Church annex in suburban New Jersey, I'm about to start my first morning of a four-week mind control summer camp. It is 1980. I am 9 years old. The classroom resembles an industrial park conference room, not the cavernous place of worship or brain reprogramming lab I had been expecting.

The dozen other kids, aged 9-12, show the lack of interest reserved for Sunday school or detention. Doodling on their notepads. Staring into space. Except for me. I'm tapping my foot, both nervous and excited, because when you're 9 and a little daydreamy and accustomed to following directions, controlling other people's minds sounds like the chance of a lifetime.

If you don't already know, the Silva Mind Control Methodwas founded in the 1950s, but taught in the 1960s around the same time as the Human Potential Movement. The HPM was an American subculture that yielded "The Inner Peace Movement," thinkers like Alan Watts and Jean Houston, and the Esalen Institute.

What Is the Key to Freedom?

By Deepak Chopra, Creator of Timeless You

One of the most crucial aspects of life is the notion of freedom and the notion of bondage. Ultimately, our goal is to experience freedom, but to understand what freedom is we first have to understand what bondage is.

What does it mean to be free and what does it mean to be in bondage? To be in bondage is to be stuck in this or that possibility, having lost the ability to choose from an infinite range of responses.
What is the bondage to?

The bondage is always to our own boundaries, to our own beliefs and conditioned responses. Boundaries and beliefs are nothing more than ideas or concepts that we have committed to and accepted as truth. And when they are as rigid and inflexible as concrete, we cannot see past them. They become the prison walls that we inadvertently construct around ourselves.

Hack Your Brain With This Mind Over Matter Headset

Star Wars first planted the idea over 35 years ago that we could move objects with our minds. That idea is now a reality that has come a long way in the last few years. Emotiv is on the cutting edge of that technology with headgear that allows you to do things, such as make a toy car whiz by or help a quadriplegic mix music like a DJ using just their brain power.

It works by scanning your brain for signals using the Emotiv EEG device on your head. That device then relays your signals through a brain-computer interface to detect emotions, interest and a slew of other things. It takes some work but it also helps you use your Jedi training skills to move objects with just the power of thought.

The Greatest Mindf*** Movies of All Time

By Matthew Baldwin / Source: The Morning News

There’s a certain brand of movie that I most enjoy. Some people call them “Puzzle Movies.” Others call them “Brain Burners.” Each has, at some point or another, been referred to as “that flick I watched while I was baked out of my mind.”

But the phrase I find myself employing, when casting around for a succinct term for the entire genre, is “Mindfuck Movies.” It’s an expression I picked up from a college roommate of mine, an enormous Star Trek: The Next Generation fan who adored those episodes when the nature of reality itself was called into question, usually after the holodeck went berserk or Q showed up and hornswoggled everyone into thinking they were intergalactic dung beetles (or whatever…I never really followed the show myself).

Mindfuckers aren’t just Dadaism by another name—there has to be some rationale for the mayhem, even if it’s far-fetched (orbiting hallucination-inducing lasers!) or lame (it was all a dream!).

And they are not those movies where the audience (and the characters) think they know what’s happening, only to discover in the final moments some key twist that turns everything on its head. (Bruce Willis was balding the whole time?!) I love those films as well, but that’s not what we’re discussing. In Mindfuck Movies you know that Something Is Going On. It’s just not clear what.

Here are 15 16 of my absolute favorites from this rarefied class of motion pictures. And, really, the phrase “Mindfuck Movies” is too crude for such works of arts. These films are sophisticated. They make love to your mind.

The Subliminal Power of a Smile

By Bill Hendrick
Cox News Service


Smile at the bartender for a mere 16 milliseconds and chances are he'll juice up your drink with a bit more booze. But be aware that if the pourer shoots you a "microsmile," it's likely to make you thirstier.


Those are among the conclusions of a series of studies by Piotr Winkielman, professor of psychology at the University of California, San Diego, who found that people's consumption behaviors can be altered by subliminal messages - that is, messages they aren't aware they're getting.


In two studies, participants were shown a series of photographs of happy, angry or neutral faces. Consciously, the subjects were aware only of seeing the neutral image.


Immediately afterward, they were asked to rate their moods and "interact" with a beverage by drinking what was offered, asking for more or not taking a sip.
