Top 10 Geniuses Who Were/Are Horrible People

When someone is remembered as a genius, little else about them as a person is made public. Why would we care that Einstein cheated on his wife like, all the time? The guy invented gravity, he was awesome!

In a similar vein, there are other geniuses from a variety of respective fields that are, or were, straight-up awful people, despite how little attention people pay to that fact. People like …

The Power of Self-Healing and the Bio-Energetic Information System

That the mind affects the body to varying degrees has been a widely established fact for a long time. From simple pain relief to anesthetic-free surgery performed under the effect of hypnosis, there is countless evidence that shows the extent at which the mind can affect the body’s system and functioning. If all these cases were compiled under one body of knowledge or research, it would supersede all the medical archives till present.

Miracles With A Wave Of Your Hand

By Paul Wong, Creator of The Art of Neutrality

I know that sounds ridiculous... but the latest cutting-edge science of epigenetics has revealed a whole new paradigm of mind control...

Everyone knows about the power of the mind to affect amazing changes, sometimes miraculous. (They call it the "placebo effect.")

Yet, for some it's still difficult to understand what this placebo effect is -- and what it really means.

It means your mind has the power to heal itself, other people, plants, animals and much more.

To others, this seems like creating miracles, because they're so out of the ordinary when they actually do happen. But what if you could "flip a switch" and activate your own ability to heal yourself or even other people, from the inside-out? Imagine what you could do.

I stand behind this method 110%. It has worked for me and my family, and I continue to practice it daily and I've noticed my skills are improving.

This is way beyond anything you've seen, heard or believed in before. It is a priceless treasure.

If you've ever wondered if "energy healing" is legit, or wanted to experiment with conscious creation, manipulation and manifestation...

There is no better way I've found than this.

The Ultimate Guide to Changing Your Life

By James Altucher, Author of The Power of No

Ugh, then there are those times when I feel dead inside. I wake up early and swing on the pre-school swingset like a pervert.

The sun rises and instead of being orange and blue and beautiful it’s white and glaring and it’s a terrible terrible sunrise, burning everything inside of me.

Another day.

This is what happens to me when change is being born. At least for me: I’ve never avoided any of these steps.


Become Superhuman in 60 Days

There's an awesome upswing in the number of movies about upgraded humans. Think of X-men's Wolverine with his upgraded skeleton, Iron Man's nuclear-powered heart, Neo's downloaded martial art skills from The Matrix, and Captain America. Then there's a movie called Limitless about a man who takes a smart drug and ends up ruling the world, but not himself.

There's a scene in Captain America where a physically weak man walks into a chamber, and thanks to the miracle of technology, emerges transformed, and upgraded. We're led to believe it's science fiction, which it is, but it's not that far away from what you can do today.

If you set aside about 60 days and somewhere in the neighborhood of $25,000 (or possibly as little as $8,000), you can upgrade just about every system in your body.

Many of the questions are explored in my book Be Fearless: Change Your Life in 28 Days.

Could Magic Mushrooms Change the World?

British author Simon G Powell thinks he'd have had a slightly less eventful job had he never discovered magic mushrooms. "Probably working in a bookshop, or something," he says when I ask him to speculate.

Instead of chasing up late DVD returns, however, the 50-year-old has just released his second book about shrooms titled Magic Mushroom Explorer: Psilocybin and the Awakening Earth. Psilocybin—if you haven't already been informed via those glow-in-the-dark velvet posters at your local record shop—is a psychedelic tryptamine compound found in around 200 types of mushrooms worldwide. Or, in layman's terms, the stuff that makes you see weird shit when you eat them.


5 Famous Books Inspired by Dreams

By Beverly Jenkins / Source: ListVerse

Everybody dreams, but most of the time our dreams are nothing more than the subconscious mind processing thoughts and feelings from our waking hours. Yet, every so often a creative individual has a vivid dream which inspires them to put pen to paper and create a great work of literature. Below are five examples of famous novels that were inspired by their author’s sleeping mind.

1. Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer

In June of 2003, suburban Arizona mother Stephenie Meyer woke up from an intense dream in which two young lovers were lying together in a meadow, discussing why their love could never work. On her website, Meyers says, “One of these people was just your average girl. The other person was fantastically beautiful, sparkly, and a vampire. They were discussing the difficulties inherent in the facts that A) they were falling in love with each other while B) the vampire was particularly attracted to the scent of her blood, and was having a difficult time restraining himself from killing her immediately.”

How to Master Your Subconscious Mind

Source: MindCastr

Hidden subliminal messages can help you to think positively and increase your motivation. Living a happy and fulfilled life is something we all desire.

Hidden subliminal messages can help you to achieve your goals, stay happy in your relationships, have prosperity and abundance as well as get the career you have always dreamed about.

However, your attitude and the way you think can stop you from achieving your dreams.

It is important to point out that the way we think is often influenced by negative thoughts and experiences that we unconsciously store in our system. In order to live a happier life you need to develop a positive attitude towards life in general.

Hidden subliminal messages can help you to develop a positive attitude and achieve your goals. Watching positive affirmations unconsciously has been found to be effective when it comes to training your mind to think positively.

Brain-Altering Devices: Coming Soon to a Skull Near You

It feels like a long time since the Quantified Self movement caught us in its clutches. The first fitness bands and their corresponding apps sucked us in; the ability to monitor self-defined statistics made us feel more in control of ourselves. It's part narcissism, part hypervigilance.

But the most significant roadblock has been taking all the information we're self-quantifying and acting on it. You know you're taking 1,000 too few steps a day, eating 500 more calories than you should, and getting only a fraction of the outside time you need; actually doing something with the data is the hard part.

Motivation and habit change are hard, and no heart-monitoring bracelet is going to magically solve that problem.

How to Treat Social Anxiety



Knowing how to treat social anxiety can mean the difference between a life of complete social freedom and a crippling existence where you hide from day to day interactions.

I know this firsthand because I used to belong to the later of the two.
I probably don't have to tell you dealing with social anxiety is like having a wall in between you and the rest of the world. 

Despite your best efforts, the overwhelming fear, panic and self-consciousness envelopes your every action.

Personally, the paranoia I felt when in social situations was unbearable. I would also constantly squirm and feel restless, not knowing where to put my hands, my body, how to stand or sit – you name it.

5 Cult Leaders Who Used Sex to Control Their Followers

In the book Raping the Gods, by Brian Whitney, a ghostwriter is hired to ghostwrite the memoirs of Dylan, a deranged, fantastically wealthy sex addict, who lives in Samoa with his female sex slaves. Dylan had a profound spiritual awakening during a vision quest he went on with a local tribe. He thinks he met God. Actually, he thinks he met God and had sex with Him. Raped Him, in fact. Throughout all of Dylan’s insanity and abuse his slaves remain unwavering.

Many people throughout time have used sex to take control of people’s minds. When it comes to keeping someone under your control, banging them while slowly exerting power over their minds and bodies is possibly the best way to do that. It is true that other methods can work. You can threaten someone, beat them, isolate them, financially exploit them, but none of those are as effective as sex.

Here are 5 cult leaders that used sex to get their freak on and control minds at the same time.

Is Yoga a Sex Cult?


By William J. Broad / Source: NY Times

The wholesome image of yoga took a hit in the past few weeks as a rising star of the discipline came tumbling back to earth. After accusations of sexual impropriety with female students, John Friend, the founder of Anusara, one of the world's fastest-growing styles, told followers that he was stepping down for an indefinite period of "self-reflection, therapy and personal retreat."

Mr. Friend preached a gospel of gentle poses mixed with openness aimed at fostering love and happiness. But Elena Brower, a former confidante, has said that insiders knew of his "penchant for women" and his love of "partying and fun."

Few had any idea about his sexual indiscretions, she added. The apparent hypocrisy has upset many followers.

"Those folks are devastated," Ms. Brower wrote in The Huffington Post. "They're understandably disappointed to hear that he cheated on his girlfriends repeatedly" and "lied to so many."

But this is hardly the first time that yoga's enlightened facade has been cracked by sexual scandal. Why does yoga produce so many philanderers? And why do the resulting uproars leave so many people shocked and distraught?

60 Ways to Make Life A Little Bit Simpler

When we were young life was easier, right? I know sometimes it seems that way. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be. The only difference is we’re older, and the older we get, the more we complicate things for ourselves.

You see, when we were young we saw the world through simple, hopeful eyes. We knew what we wanted and we had no biases or concealed agendas. We liked people who smiled. We avoided people who frowned. We ate when we were hungry, drank when we were thirsty, and slept when we were tired.

Zen Meditation Really Does Clear the Mind

By Charles Q. Choi / Special to LiveScience
The seemingly nonsensical Zen practice of "thinking about not thinking" could help free the mind of distractions, new brain scans reveal.

This suggests Zen meditation could help treat attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (so-called ADD or ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorder, major depression and other disorders marked by distracting thoughts.


In the last decade, there has been a resurgence of scientific research into meditation, due in part to the wide availability and increasing sophistication of brain-scanning techniques. For instance, scientists recently found that months of intense training in meditation can sharpen a person's brain enough to help them notice details they might otherwise miss.


"It is important that this type of research be conducted with high scientific standards because it carries a long-standing stigma — perhaps well-deserved? — of being wishy-washy," said researcher Giuseppe Pagnoni, a neuroscientist at Emory University in Atlanta. "Constructive skepticism should always be welcomed as a great sparring partner."


Pagnoni and his colleagues investigated Zen meditation, which Pagnoni himself has practiced while studying for his doctorate in Italy.

7 More Weird Self-Help Book Titles


By Karen Tay/ Source: Stuff

Self-help books are such funny, deeply personal things. You can get help for any aspect of life, from how to be happy to how to stop comfort-eating, heal your emotional self, take control of your life and the bread and butter of the self-help genre, relationship advice.

The relationship advice covers every relationship under the sun, from parents and children to romance, marriage, friendship and even how to get along with the in-laws without wanting to suffocate them with a pillowslip.

Today I thought we could get into some of the frivolous (or just plain freaky) self-help titles that can be found online - I admit that I have read none of them, I'm just making assumptions about content purely from the title and sometimes the blurb. Isn't that fun?
