The 8th Wonder of the World?

By Hazel Courteney
Source: Daily Mail UK

Nestling in the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy, 30 miles from the ancient city of Turin, lies the valley of Valchiusella. Peppered with medieval villages, the hillside scenery is certainly picturesque.

But it is deep underground, buried into the ancient rock, that the region's greatest wonders are concealed.

Here, 100ft down and hidden from public view, lies an astonishing secret - one that has drawn comparisons with the fabled city of Atlantis and has been dubbed 'the Eighth Wonder of the World' by the Italian government.

For weaving their way underneath the hillside are nine ornate temples, on five levels, whose scale and opulence take the breath away.

Constructed like a three-dimensional book, narrating the history of humanity, they are linked by hundreds of metres of richly decorated tunnels and occupy almost 300,000 cubic feet - Big Ben is 15,000 cubic feet.

Few have been granted permission to see these marvels.
Indeed, the Italian government was not even aware of their existence until a few years ago.

But the 'Temples of Damanhur' are not the great legacy of some long-lost civilisation, they are the work of a 57-year-old former insurance broker from northern Italy who, inspired by a childhood vision, began digging into the rock.

How to Manifest a Miracle

Three Step Manifestation Formula Fully Disclosed

There's three very important steps that you must first understand in you want to manifest
a button or a million dollars. The process is exactly the same whether your name is Michael Jackson or Joe Bloggs.

Almost all people are creating by default. They haven't been taught the creation process
and therefore aren't aware of why "bad" things keep happening to them.

Here's how it works...

Did Oprah Crash the Economy?

By Phillip Tilley
Author of The Money Matrix of the New World Order

Did Oprah cause the economic crash? It is possible she is at least partly to blame. A year and a half ago the economy was humming along doing fine, consumer confidence was high and so was the stock market.

Then Oprah had the author to the book “The Secret” on her program not once but twice to promote it. The Secret uses junk science to convince gullible people they can have whatever they want if they wish it into existence.

Ten million people bought the book and began secretly using the secret to get what they wanted. A new house or car, a big screen TV, and a vacation to Hawaii were all high on the lists of most people. When the secret wasn’t working, they used their credit cards and took out loans and got what they secretly wanted anyway because they believed the secret would secretly send them money to pay for it all so they didn’t worry. They are worried now because there is no money.

The Dark Side of Creating Your Own Reality

By Blair Warren

Many in the self-help field tell us that, “We create our own reality.” And, I must confess, I believe it myself - to a degree.

To be more accurate, I believe that we participate in the creation of our own reality. In addition to our contribution, there are countless other contributions as well: other people, nature, circumstance, luck, etc.

Still, regardless of the validity of the idea of “reality creation,” the notion itself can be exhilarating. I know this because when I first “got” this idea, after decades of struggling with personal demons, I felt invincible.

I could decide how things would go for me. I could decide what things meant. I could decide what was important to me.

You get the idea.

So, it’s no wonder that this idea has been taught - and bought - by so many.

But while many extol the merits of this mindset, few discuss its dangers. Yes, dangers. Here are just a few:

The Hypnotic Handshake

By Shlomo Vaknin, C.Ht / Source: NLP Weekly

The Hypnotic Handshake method is based on ‘brief hypnosis’. Brief hypnosis is a less known format of hypnotizing, first initiated by Dr. Milton H. Erickson. Erickson also taught the Hypnotic Handshake method based on the principles of brief hypnosis.

Brief hypnosis claims that most people enter trance (the hypnotic state of mind) and exit trance many times during the day.

One good example would be driving on the free way, white you’re figuring out what to say to your boss about you being late again (for the 29th time this month). Not being aware completely to the road and to the driving activity, you still make it in one piece to the office. That’s hypnosis.

Brief hypnosis starts with a rapid induction to get a person into trance. Rapid induction is based on two key principles:

Scientists Create Software to Map Dreams

By Danielle Demetriou / Source: The Telegraph

A team of Japanese scientists have created a device that enables the processing and imaging of thoughts and dreams as experienced in the brain to appear on a computer screen.

While researchers have so far only created technology that can reproduce simple images from the brain, the discovery paves the way for the ability to unlock people's dreams and other brain processes.

A spokesman at ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories said: "It was the first time in the world that it was possible to visualise what people see directly from the brain activity.

"By applying this technology, it may become possible to record and replay subjective images that people perceive like dreams." The scientists, lead by chief researcher Yukiyaso Kamitani, focused on the image recognition procedures in the retina of the human eye.

LIVE TRAINING: Become a Master Hypnotist

Source: Master Hypnotist Training

If you've ever considered taking your hypnosis training to the next level, pay close attention, because this is your chance to receive live training under one of the few master hypnosists in the world.

You're probably aware that there are not many master hypnotists in the world, period.

And there are precious few of those who know how to train others effectively.

Igor Ledochowski is a world famous master hypnotist who has trained more people in the powerful art of hypnosis than any other.

He has recorded 29 different audio and video training programs on all aspects of hypnosis.

And sometimes -- rarely -- he also holds LIVE trainings...

The next chance to receive live training from a world-renowned master hypnosis is coming to Seattle on January 9. If there is any way that you can possibly be there I recommend you check out the testimonials from past attendees...

The $2 Billion Mind Control Lawsuit

By Lyle Zapato / Source:

A Cascadian man, Jerry Rose, is suing Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Telus, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and others for $2-billion over allegations of mind-control, satanic rituals, and witchcraft:

Rose's claim states "that he has been subject to invasive brain computer interface technology, research, experiments, field studies and surgery" and also named the University of B.C. and the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons as defendants.

B.C. judge Fraser Wilson bravely broke with his Federalist handlers and refused the defendants' call to have the case summarily thrown out, citing CIA-sponsored experiments at the McGill University hospital in Montreal in the 1950-60s -- in which people were given LSD without their consent in an attempt to wipe out their sense of "self" and rebuild their identities to CIA specifications -- as reason to give Rose's claims a fair hearing.

The Subconscious Mind: Your Unsung Hero

By Kate Douglas / Source: New Scientist

Earlier this year I found myself thinking about thinking. Specifically, what is it that makes the human mind so special? Like many people, I have always believed that the answer lies in our capacity for conscious thought. But listening to speakers at a recent Ernst Strungmann Forum in Frankfurt, Germany, I began to wonder if there might be more to it than that.

It was a discussion entitled "Better than conscious" that had me intrigued. The more I listened to what the assembled scientists had to say and talked to them about their work, the more it seemed that our higher consciousness alone is not what sets us apart from other animals.

In fact, far from playing second fiddle to the conscious mind, subconscious thought processes may play a crucial role in many of the mental facilities we prize as uniquely human, including creativity, memory, learning and language.

The Pain of Perfect Memory

By Samiha Shafy Source: Speigel Magazine

Wouldn't it be great to be able to remember everything? To see all our most important moments, all the priceless encounters, adventures and triumphs? What if memory never faded, but instead could be retrieved at any time, as reliably as films in a video store?

"No one can imagine what it's really like," says Jill Price, 42, "not even the scientists who are studying me."

The Californian, who has an almost perfect memory, is trying to describe how it feels. She starts with a small demonstration of her ability. "When were you born?" she asks.

She hears the date and says: "Oh, that was a Wednesday. There was a cold snap in Los Angeles two days later, and my mother and I made soup."

Price is sitting in The Grill, a restaurant in Beverly Hills. She's a heavyset woman with blonde hair and big blue eyes. She wears large amounts of jewelry -- gold Creole earrings, silver bracelets and a Star of David dangling from her necklace, which she often rubs with her fingers as she talks. Price runs a religious school at a synagogue near Los Angeles.

She says the restaurant has been one her favorites for the past 23 years -- since Sept. 20, 1985, to be exact. It was a Friday. "And I was sitting with my father at that table over there, eating garlic chicken. I was wearing a big hat."

Brain Science Explains the Thin Line Between Love and Hate

By Michael Kahn / Source: Reuters

It often seems a thin line between love and hate, and now scientists think they know why.

Brain scans of people shown images of individuals they hated revealed a pattern of brain activity that partly occurs in areas also activated by romantic love, Semir Zeki and John Paul Romaya of University College London reported on Wednesday.

"This linkage may account for why love and hate are so closely linked to each other in life," the researchers wrote in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS One.

"Our results show that there is a unique pattern of activity in the brain in the context of hate."

The Two-Minute Self-Hypnosis Technique

By Colin G Smith
Creator of The NLP Toolbox

Psychologists and Doctors used to send their 'impossible' clients to him and in many instances he helped them to turn their lives around. Milton H. Erickson was one of the most successful hypnotherapists in the world and is often referred to as 'the father of modern hypnosis.'

One of the factors that set him apart from other change workers was his strong faith in the vast potential of human beings. He knew that when a person stopped stumbling around with their conscious mind and tapped into the limitless ocean of unconscious resources, people could make wonderful changes.

He used to look at a client and say something like, 'You've tried to solve this problem with your conscious mind and failed utterly. Now is the time to access your unconscious resources in a way that resolves this problem effectively.'

Now you may be wondering just how can you really induce self hypnosis in two minutes!?

Well, one of the common misconceptions about hypnosis is that you have to be able to concentrate and go into a profoundly altered state. This could be done, however what we are really interested in is accessing other areas of our mind (i.e. unconscious resources) so that we can make certain changes giving rise to our chosen outcome.

Mind Control Lawsuit vs. Microsoft and Walmart

By Paul Walton, Canwest News Service

A judge has refused to dismiss a "bizarre" civil suit brought by a Nanaimo man who is seeking $2 billion in damages from Microsoft, Telus, Wal-Mart, the RCMP and other defendants over alleged brain-wave control, satanic rituals and witchcraft.

Justice Fraser Wilson heard from five lawyers on Monday, arguing that the case brought forward by Jerry Rose is so outrageous it should have been dismissed immediately.

Rose's claim states "that he has been subject to invasive brain computer interface technology, research, experiments, field studies and surgery" and also named the University of B.C. and the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons as defendants.

Jennifer Millbank, a Nanaimo lawyer hired to represent Microsoft in the case, said that Rose's two-page statement of claim is "nothing short of bizarre" and that it would be "impossible this would ever be a case for trial on the merits."

How to Manifest for Free

By Nelson Berry
Creator of Subliminal Video Messages

I am constantly receiving e-mails that say something like this: "Please send me something that is free that will cause me to attract money so that I can have money to pay for other things needed. Thank you."

This is a typical example of e-mails that are arriving from around the world from people who just don't get it.

So what I wanted to do was give anybody the opportunity to manifest anything that they wanted to for basically free.

The only thing that you need is a couple of good pencils or pens, and a notebook, just a standard, regular notebook.

So how do we do this?

Firstly this is a daily exercise. You don't miss a day. Second thing to remember is what we're doing is creating the future. It's a four step sequence. And so, without further ado, let's go ahead and get started.

4 Simple Steps Add 14 Years to Your Life

By Rebecca Sato / Source: The Daily Galaxy

The proverbial “fountain of youth”, may not exist, but lifestyle changes can do the same thing a new study by Cambridge University shows.

Some would give millions, or whatever they had, to buy and extra 14 years of life, but according to the latest research, it’s just four relatively simple behaviors that combine to add well over a decade to your life expectancy.

The research, headed by Dr. Kay-Tee Khaw at Cambridge's Institute of Public Health, found that those who 1) exercised regularly, 2) ate five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, 3) didn't smoke, and 4) did not drink excessively, will on average live 14 years longer than those who do not follow these behaviors.

The Secret of Success Is Not What You'd Expect

By Sabitri Ghosh / Source: The Globe and Mail

Malcolm Gladwell knows a thing or two about success.

His previous books, The Tipping Point and Blink, have sold more than three million copies combined in North America alone. He reportedly commands fees of $40,000 (U.S.) per speaking engagement and, in 2005, Time named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Not bad for a kid from Elmira, Ontario.

Now, Mr. Gladwell - whose trademark blend of social science and storytelling appears regularly in The New Yorker - is out to reveal the secret of success. Outliers, due out next week, looks at everyone from hockey players to lawyers and software billionaires to make the case that success has less to do with merit or psychological makeup than with arbitrary factors such as when and where you were born and what your parents did for a living.

A Bad Economy is Good for Psychics

By Ryan Singel / Source: Wired Blog

Katrina Spears, a self-described internet medium, was running errands Sept. 30, the day the Dow plummeted 770 points.

"When I got home that day, I had messages from 30 clients," Spears says.

While it doesn't take a psychic to see that tough times lay ahead for the economy, online practitioners of the divination arts say they're seeing a marked sift in the questions posed by their clientele, with anxious consumers increasingly asking what's in store for them financially in the months ahead.

Believers who normally seek psychics for advice on a cheating spouse are now asking whether a pink slip is in their future, and internet psychics across the board saw a spike in traffic in the days following the initial market crash.

The boom in superstition is a predicable response to troubling times, says Columbia Business School professor Gita Johar, who's studied the phenomenon. "If the future is uncertain, people turn to psychics," Johar says. Consumers tend to embrace the supernatural when confronted by stress, combined with uncertainty. "You have an illusion then that you can then control the outcome. People want the illusion of control."

The Universal Law of Bollocks

By Nicholas P. Kidd and Henk J.M. Schram
Creators of The Great Revolution

These days you can hardly go through any articles, books, DVDs, movies, films, documentaries with regard to self-improvement or self-help without coming across at least one mentioning of some ‘Universal Law’. Suddenly, there appears to be a Universal Law for anything. Like we haven’t got enough Laws to deal with already!

There is truth to these ‘Universal Laws’, but in most cases, a little nuance is in place. Please read along, as the remainder of this article will clear it all up.

There are Universal Laws that guide your life behind the scenes of ‘physical reality’. These are actually rather ‘universal principles of life’. That would be a more appropriate qualification.

However, the qualification of ‘Universal Law’ has taken on a life of its own. The word ‘Law’ appears to be a magic word… Almost a magic wand that casts a spell on anyone who reads it that puts them in a hypnotized state thinking that what it says must be true. After all, it’s a ‘Law’ isn’t it? A ‘Law’ is always right. No more thinking required.

Most of us know that yoga is beneficial to our overall health and wellbeing. It puts the body into balance and can improve everything from blood sugar levels to depression and anxiety. But one of the other incredible benefits of yoga is its power to transform your sex life! Yoga allows people to get in touch with their bodies and their sexuality on a deeper level.

Of course all forms of exercise result in a greater sex life than a couch potato routine. Exercise ensures there are no cardiovascular issues, which can result in impotence, low libido, and inability to have a good workout in bed.

But yoga gives the body even more of an edge. Here are some sex life enhancing benefits that you can enjoy from a regular yoga routine.

The Best Time of Day for Ideas is 10:04 p.m.

Early to bed, early to rise, makes you healthy, wealthy and wise, so goes the old proverb. But it seems the advice holds little truth.

Research now suggests that if you want to be the wisest, you really need to stay up - well, until 10.04pm at least. This is supposedly the best time for a eureka moment, according to research.

And around a quarter of us feel we formulate our most cunning plans when we are burning the midnight oil, a survey of 1426 adults found.

By contrast, despite what many managers may believe, daytime in the office is not conducive to blue-sky thinking.
The afternoon, when most people are at work, is when an overwhelming 98 per cent of those polled say they feel most "uninspired".

The creativity drought just gets worse over the nine-to-five working day, hitting rock bottom at 4.33pm.

Mind Over Body in Extreme Experiments

By William J. Cromie / Source: Harvard Gazette

In a monastery in northern India, thinly clad Tibetan monks sat quietly in a room where the temperature was a chilly 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a yoga technique known as g Tum-mo, they entered a state of deep meditation. Other monks soaked 3-by-6-foot sheets in cold water (49 degrees) and placed them over the meditators' shoulders. For untrained people, such frigid wrappings would produce uncontrolled shivering.

If body temperatures continue to drop under these conditions, death can result. But it was not long before steam began rising from the sheets. As a result of body heat produced by the monks during meditation, the sheets dried in about an hour.

Attendants removed the sheets, then covered the meditators with a second chilled, wet wrapping. Each monk was required to dry three sheets over a period of several hours.

Why would anyone do this? Herbert Benson, who has been studying g Tum-mo for 20 years, answers that "Buddhists feel the reality we live in is not the ultimate one. There's another reality we can tap into that's unaffected by our emotions, by our everyday world. Buddhists believe this state of mind can be achieved by doing good for others and by meditation. The heat they generate during the process is just a by-product of g Tum-mo meditation."

World's First Ever Mind Games Competition

By Hu Yinan / Source: China Daily

The smartest minds in the world are about to wrap up a little-known, two-week games in Beijing - and it's mission accomplished for the mastermind of the show.

As president of the International Mind Sports Association (IMSA), Jose Damiani's dream has been to attract ever more youngsters to the fun of "mental games".
That dream has come true with the roaring success of the ongoing 1st World Mind Sports Games (WMSG) consisting of bridge, draughts, chess, Go and Xiangqi, or Chinese chess.

"I realized my dream We've managed this perfectly. The Chinese organizing committee did a marvelous job," the Frenchman told China Daily Wednesday.

Beijing has notched up unprecedented success this year with the hosting of the Olympic and Paralympic games. Now, the capital can rightly - and proudly - add the first-ever WMSG to that list.

What Do the Rich & Famous Know That You Don't

By Valerie Dawson
Creator of Guided Visualization Audios

By now you've tried it all. And I mean ALL.

  • You've read all the books.
  • You've listened to talks.
  • You've done your affirmations.
  • You've written down your goals.
  • You've tried to "think positive."
  • You've visualized your goals.
You've tried it all, and quite frankly, you're wondering if all this positive thinking stuff is a bunch of baloney.

So... What Do The Rich And Famous Know That You Don't?

They hired coaches, hypnotists and psychologists to guide them.

That’s right. Tiger Woods, Ellen Degeneres, Charlie Sheen, Drew Barrymore, Matt Damon, and Billy Joel all paid someone else to guide them. These famous people and thousands of others, all hired professionals to help them tap into the power of their minds!

They didn't sit there all by themselves and "just visualize." That's too hard. Plus, it's often ineffective, just as you know from first hand experience. Instead, these famous athletes and movie stars paid a professional to help them to visualize more clearly. And it worked! You see how they have achieved their goals and are super-successful!

Ancient Tibetan Practice Improves Health & Happiness

By Rebecca Sato / Source: The Daily Galaxy

Data from a new Emory University study suggests that individuals who engage in “compassion meditation” based on a thousand-year-old Tibetan Buddhist mind-training practice (called "lojong" in Tibetan), appears to effectively reduce the inflammatory and behavioral responses to stress that have been linked to depression and a number of physical illnesses. The practice revolves around fostering a sense of heightened compassion for others.

"Our findings suggest that meditation practices designed to foster compassion may impact physiological pathways that are modulated by stress and are relevant to disease," explains Charles L. Raison, MD, a lead author on the study.

The Biology of Belief: We Are Not Victims of Our Genes

By Laurie Nadel, Ph.D.

Microbiologist Dr. Bruce Lipton discusses the current evolutionary crisis and his breakthrough research on the mind/matter interface with Dr. Laurie Nadel, host of The Sixth Sense on This article is excerpted from that interview.

Q: You refer to a crisis in evolution. What is that?

We find ourselves today in the midst of a vast evolutionary leap. What makes it especially interesting is that we do not see it.

We do see are many little crises affecting the world. But many of us fail to recognize that these crises foretell an impending change that will have a great impact on human civilization. As a molecular biologist, I perceive recurring patterns in these crises that point to a collective crisis in evolution. In order to evolve biologically as a species that is capable of surviving the many dangers ahead, our genes must evolve, as well.

Q: How does this affect us as individuals?

A: The 19th century reductionist model of science states that the world is made out of physical matter. Therefore, everything that exists can be reduced to smaller components of matter. But new scientific discoveries in physics and biology refute that premise. In truth, our beliefs and thoughts affect physical matter.

Q: Does that mean our thoughts and beliefs affect our genes?

A: The new biology provides evidence that each of us is a community of some 50 trillion cells wired up to communicate with each other through electromagnetic signals. These signals come from the environment, both internal and external. Our internal environment includes the DNA code for consciousness, conscience, and compassion—our spiritual genes. As we develop ideas and actions that give these genes expression, not only do we begin to thrive as individuals. We also get an unparalleled opportunity to contribute to our collective evolution as a species.

Unlocking the Inner Savant In All of Us


We are all capable of the extraordinary savant skills displayed by people with autism according to Professor Allan Snyder, speaking at the Royal Society today. Snyder argues that it is our inbuilt expectations of the world that stop us from using them.

Prof Snyder spoke on the savant syndrome and his efforts to 'turn on' autistic savant skills in people who don't have autism at a discussion meeting jointly organised by the Royal Society and the British Academy. Snyder is director of the Centre for the Mind at the University of Sydney, Australia.

The savant syndrome is a rare condition in which people with autism or other mental disabilities have extraordinary skills that stand in stark contrast to their overall handicap. Savant skills are typically confined to five areas: art, music, calendar calculating, mathematics and spatial skills and these skills are accompanied by an exceptional ability to recall meaningless detail. In autistic savants these skills appear spontaneously at a young age.

How to Thrive During Economic Uncertainty

By Alex Goumakos / Source

If you’ve been following the news over the last couple of weeks, you’ll know that there’s been quite a stir happening on Wall Street.

We’ve heard about collapses, bailouts and the possibility of more to come.

Just yesterday the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell nearly 778 points, the largest single point drop in history.

Thankfully today, it had the 3rd HIGHEST point gain on record.

No question, the financial markets are definitely unstable.

Whether the situation quickly improves or gets worse before it gets better, remains to be seen.

The road to abundance and prosperity starts in your own mind.

How to Memorize 10,000 Numbers or More

By Tim Ferris
Author of The 4-Hour Work Week

Numbers, or digit strings, are considered by many mnemonists and cognitive scientists to be the most difficult data to memorize. If numbers are both abstract and difficult, how did Hideaki Tomoyori of Japan memorize PI to more than 10,000 places? How did my classmate in Tokyo also multiply four-digit numbers in seconds?

The answer is proper encoding, or translation of the abstract to the concrete. Hideaki used what I’ll teach you here, whereas my classmate used a phantom abacus like in this video.

The average person can only hold seven or fewer numbers in their working memory at any given time, using vocal repetition as an aid. Using proper encoding, trained subjects can memorize all of the area codes in the United States within a 24-hour period… By encoding abstract data first as letters, then as nouns, one can accurately store and recall hundreds of items (images) both forwards and backwards.

This introduction to encoding will provide an overview of the consonant system mnemonic, which encodes numbers as consonants of the English language. In this system of encoding, vowels (a, e, i, o, u) have no value, nor do w, h, or y. Numbers are converted to consonants, which are then converted to nouns and images. Bear with me — the examples make this simple to use.

Top 10 Unethical Psychological Experiments

Source: The List Universe

Psychology is a relatively new science which gained popularity in the early 20th century with Wilhelm Wundt. In the zeal to learn about the human thought process and behavior, many early psychiatrists went too far with their experimentations, leading to stringent ethics codes and standards.

Though these are highly unethical experiments, it should be mentioned that they did pave the way to induct our current ethical standards of experiments, and that should be seen as a positive. There is some crossover on this list with the Top 10 Evil Human Experiments. Three items from that list are reproduced here (items 8, 9, and 10) for the sake of completeness.

How to Cure Bad Habits with Hypnosis

By Valerie Dawson, Certified Hypnotherapist
Creator of Hypnotic Visualization Guided Audios

Why can’t I cure my own bad habit?

If you have a bad habit - such as comfort eating, smoking or an addiction to gambling or alcohol, for example, then you can probably answer the question for yourself. A lot of us simply can’t kick a bad habit on our own - we tend to say that it’s because we don’t have the willpower to actually carry it through.

The fact is that any kind of bad habit takes hold of you both psychologically and physically. So, when you try to kick the habit yourself you have to deal with a lot of mental stress and physical side effects that can really throw you. So, for many people, it’s simply easier to pick up the bad habit again to make the nasty symptoms go away.

This doesn’t make us weak or mean that we lack willpower - it simply means that our bad habit has taken such a hold we need external help to deal with it once and for all.

Brain Implants for the World's First Cyborg

By Pratima Harigunani / Source:

World's first ever Cyborg, Professor Kevin Warwick, Department of Cybernetics, University of Reading, is just six to eight years away from another implant, this time a brain implant.

This experiment would be in the area of bi-directional communication. Currently the investigation process is on for brain-computer links, in particular an implant into the brain, which acts bi-directionally.

As Warwick tells, "This probably will mean retraining neurons within the brain to alter their basic functioning. The main reason here would be for bi-directional communication. Clearly this is different to space projects. I believe it is far more important as it really changes what it means to be human."

How Anyone Can Become A Millionaire

By David Cameron
Creator of the Wealth Fundamentals Pack

We live in a culture where the cultural story tells us, "Go to school so that you can get a job so that you can make money. And after working for forty years you can retire and live well." It is the cultural story, we are told it by our parents, friends, teachers, government . But how true is it today?

The evidence on the ground shows us that work does not necessarily equal wealth. Most people are not wealthy; they work long hours and have little to show for it, that is the fact. And when they retire, they don't usually get the rosy picture the cultural story tries to portray; instead they get to survive on a meager pension.

So what happened? Why is the information we are getting not getting us the desires we are having, as far as wealth goes? Why is it only a few people who seem to get wealthy and financially free, and why is it that the knowledge they seem to have appears to be so elusive? The answer is simple.

The education system in place today was created in the 1800s. It was designed to give people the skills to work in industries, offices, and so on. It teaches working skills, not wealth-building skills. Even today, you will learn a lot in school, but one thing you will not usually learn is how to get wealthy and financially independent. All they tell you is, "Study these skills, get a job, and you will get paid." If you go to school to learn to be a doctor, they teach you how to be a doctor, but not how to create wealth. If you learn how to be a chef, you will learn that, but not how to create wealth.

Do you see the picture now? The masses are not taught how to create wealth. They are taught how to have the skills to work for others or for themselves, but not how to create wealth and financial freedom. For all intents and purposes, the vast majority of them are attempting to create wealth without a clue of how it is done. There is nothing wrong with them; they are just not equipped to achieve the goal they set. You always have to have the right equipment.

Here is a quick list of the main laws of accumulating wealth...

The Mind-Controlled Cell Phone

By Hiroki Yomogida / Source: Nikkei Business

NeuroSky Inc, a venture company based in San Jose, Calif, prototyped a system that reads brain waves with a sensor and uses them for mobile phone applications.

The company exhibited the system at CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment 2008, an exhibition running from Sept 10 to 12, 2008, in San Francisco, Calif. The headset-shaped system consists of a sensor to read brain waves, digital signal processing part and so forth. The sensor contacts with a point on user's forehead.

By reading brain waves such as a and ß waves, the system can roughly measure the degrees of brain's relaxation and concentration, NeuroSky said. The data of brain waves can be displayed on the screen of a mobile phone by using a visualizer or can be used to control the movement of a video game character.

Goal Setting for Children

Source: Go For Your Goals

Ever thought about Goal Setting for Kids? Goal setting is one of the most important skills that a person can learn, and the earlier this skill is learned, the more chances there are for successful outcomes in a person’s life.

Adults know that goal setting is all about planning, making progress with that plan and reaching final goals or achievements. Once a child learns how to do this, they can use this tool for more success in school and at home.

Goal setting for kids will help your children to do well on their school tests and in activities such as sports, music programs or outside academic or arts programs - even at home, and with their personal finances. Teaching your child how to be a goal setter will give them a sense that they are capable of whatever they want to do. That’s valuable!

Smart Drugs for Kids?

By Laura Clark / Source: Daily Mail

Schools will soon have to ensure all pupils have access to brain-enhancing 'smart drugs', according to officially funded experts.

They said teachers risk claims of bias against poorer children if they fail to give all pupils the same chance to take a new generation of pills which boost attention, concentration and memory.

Researchers predict that within a generation, cognition enhancing drugs - or 'cogs' - will be so advanced that parents and teachers will be able to 'manipulate biology' to enhance pupils' brainpower.

But schools will have to address 'ethical issues about haves and have-nots', said the scientists led by Bristol University.

'If "cogs" are only available to those who can afford them, what does this mean for equality?' their report asked.

'It may be unethical to deny the chance for pupils to take advantage of such enhancements.

Scientists Simulate Out-of-Body Experiences

By Laura Blue / Source: Time Magazine

Get ready to see yourself in a new light. Two papers released this week by the journal Science describe what seem to be the first lab-induced out-of-body experiences in healthy people.

Using goggles hooked up to video cameras, and sticks to poke and stroke, researchers subjected study participants to a variety of visual and physical cues to confuse their brain about their body's location.

Sound a bit impractical? Consider, then, how the studies relate to humankind's most enduring question: what makes us ourselves in the first place? "I'm not really interested in out-of-body experiences," says Henrik Ehrsson, one of the study's authors and an assistant professor at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. "I'm really interested in in-body experiences: how the brain keeps and updates a model of the world and the body. To have a perception of your own body is the foundation of self-consciousness."

That is, of course, why out-of-body experiences have always been, well, out-of-body. People report such experiences after returning from the "brink of death," or being under the influence of mind-altering drugs — no doubt why the sensation has long been equated with spiritual awakening (and with crackpots).

But, today, with new advances in neurology, scientists are better able than ever to locate the physical roots of these bizarre perceptions of self.

World's Largest Near Death Experience Study

Source: The Guardian

What happens when we die? It has to be one of life's biggest questions, if not the biggest.

Many of those who have come close to death report surprisingly similar experiences – being in a tunnel of lights, or soaring out of their bodies and looking down on the medical staff trying to keep them attached to the mortal coil.

In an effort to get to the bottom of this mysterious phenomenon, scientists have designed a new experiment to examine near-death experiences in heart attack survivors. Launched by the University of Southampton, it will be the largest ever international study into near-death experiences, involving 1,500 heart attack patients.

The Secret Seduction of Subliminal Messages

By Nelson Berry / Creator of Subliminal Video Messages

Subliminal Messages are all over the place!

  • Subliminal Messages in Artwork
  • Subliminal Messages in Music
  • Subliminal Messages in Advertising
  • Subliminal Messages in Movies
Subliminal messages, or hidden messages, contain a hidden stimuli with a planned response.

With the recent advances in technology, subliminal messages can now
be created and distributed with a standard computer by the average person. The applications range from self help to seduction and from advertising to weight loss. People use subliminal messages to create desires, expectations and beliefs about anything they desire through subconscious programming.

Subconscious programming is exactly like setting an airplane on
auto-pilot. Once your subconscious mind understands clearly what you want, it will draw the object of your desire to you and guide you to it automatically.

The 10 Most Fascinating Savants in the World


Sometimes the most amazing abilities of the human brain are revealed exactly when things go wrong with it. Take, for example, savants - people who have mental abilities that could only be characterized as superhuman (like having photographic memory, playing music perfectly after hearing it just once, or doing complex mathematical calculations in one's head) but otherwise severely disabled in every day cognitive functions and social interaction.

Does the human brain have latent savant-like abilities? Does our higher cognitive functions somehow block these abilities, and why? And can we have savant-like abilities without the accompanying autism and/or developmental disabilities?

One intriguing study by Dr. Allan Snyder of the Centre for the Mind suggested that temporarily impairing the left fronto-temporal lobe in healthy subjects by low-frequency magnetic pulses could result in savant-like mental abilities (see, for example: article in New York Times "Savant for a Day")

Most savants are born with their abilities (and unfortunately, their developmental disorders), but not all: severe brain injuries can, in very rare instances, cause savant-like abilities to surface (see, for example: The Case of the "Sudden" Savant). One noted savant (Daniel Tammet, see below) is a highly functioning autistic savant who can perform amazing mental feats but does not have significant developmental disabilities.

There are a few savants in the world (called "prodigious savants") whose abilities are so exceptional that they would've been classified as phenomenal with or without cognitive disabilities. Let's take a look at 10 savants with superhuman mental skills...

The Neuroscience of Spying

By Jonathan M. Gitlin

Intelligence gathering is neither straightforward nor foolproof. The intelligence community's abject failure when it came to the matter of Iraq and WMDs illustrates that point rather effectively, as does the failure to anticipate the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, as well as the USSR's wild goose chase over Able Archer 83.

When we think of the application of science to the intelligence gathering world, it's usually something like spy satellites or listening devices, but the US intelligence community needs to pay more heed to the world of the neurosciences, according to a new report from the National Research Council.

Mind Drugs Will Be Weapons in Future Wars

By Jon Swaine / Source: The Telegraph

Future wars could see opponents attacking each other's minds, according to a report for the US military.

Landmines releasing brain-altering chemicals, scanners reading soldiers' minds and devices boosting eyesight and hearing could all one figure in arsenals, suggests the study.

Sophisticated drugs, designed for dementia patients but also allowing troops to stay awake and alert for several days are expected to be developed, according to the report. It is thought that some US soldiers are already taking drugs prescribed for narcolepsy in an attempt to combat fatigue.

As well as those physically and mentally boosting one's own troops, substances could also be developed to deplete an opponents' forces, it says.

"How can we disrupt the enemy's motivation to fight?" It asks. "Is there a way to make the enemy obey our commands?" Research shows that "drugs can be utilized to achieve abnormal, diseased, or disordered psychology" among one's enemy, it concludes.

The Astonishing Creative Power of Sound

By Alex Goumakos / Source: Mind Power Soundcapes

The other day while driving home from a ‘challenging’ business meeting, I heard a song on the radio which instantly took me back to another time and place.

The tune playing on the radio was my high school prom song and the moment it began, my mind shifted gears and I immediately let go of all the stress and tension I was feeling.

I started thinking about my lovely prom date and how beautiful she looked in her prom gown.

I easily recalled, with amazing clarity, the magnificent sunny day of the prom, the shiny, freshly waxed car we drove in, and especially the captivating scent of my girlfriend’s perfume.

Problems? What problems? I was in a whole new frame of mind and relishing every moment of it.

Although the event happened over 26 years ago, in my minds eye I remembered everything as if it all happened yesterday.

To say that I was overcome by strong emotional feelings, would be an understatement. That prom was one of the many wonderful experiences I had during my teenage years. It always makes me happy to think about it.

And here’s an important lesson: Success demands a high level of emotional well-being day in and day out. In order to maintain that high level, it’s critical that you leverage any success or personal accomplishment that you’ve had in the past. Think about them. Relish them. And USE those feelings as often as you can in your current undertakings.

Supernatural Science: Why We Want to Believe

By Robert Roy Britt / Source: MSNBC

Monsters are everywhere these days, and belief in them is as strong as ever. What's harder to believe is why so many people buy into hazy evidence, shady schemes and downright false reports that perpetuate myths that often have just one ultimate truth: They put money in the pockets of their purveyors.

The bottom line, according to several interviews with people who study these things: People want to believe, and most simply can't help it.

"Many people quite simply just want to believe," said Brian Cronk, a professor of psychology at Missouri Western State University. "The human brain is always trying to determine why things happen, and when the reason is not clear, we tend to make up some pretty bizarre explanations."

Brain Electrodes Tackle Severe Depression

By Abbott Alison / Source:

Severely depressed patients who do not respond to conventional therapy may be helped by deep brain stimulation (DBS), according to the most-extensive study to date of the experimental procedure.

In a clinical trial in Toronto, Canada, 12 out of 20 patients who had stimulating electrodes placed in a brain area called the subcallosal cingulated gyrus showed significant improvement in their depression, with seven of them going into full remission.

The benefits lasted at least a year, according to the results published this week in the journal Biological Psychiatry1. Patients in the study had failed to respond to cognitive therapy, antidepressant drugs and electroconvulsant therapy.

The Tao of Making Money

By David Cameron
Creator of The Wealth Fundamentals Pack

Tao means Way. The Tao of Making Money is the Way of Making Money. What natural principles does making money follow?

Making money is part of nature, and struggle is a symptom that you are out of harmony with the flow of nature, how things work. The word prosperity originally meant "to be in the flow".

I would like you to grasp something simple yet elusive to many. First, let us hear a few words from the wise and successful, and then we can move on to the Tao of Making Money:

"To live through an impossible situation, you don't need the reflexes of a Grand Prix driver, the muscles of a Hercules, the mind of an Einstein. You simply need to know what to do." - Anthony Greenbank

"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult." - Seneca

"The world is not to be put in order; the world is order, incarnate. It is for us to harmonize with this order." - Henry Miller

"If we do not know what port we're steering for, no wind is favorable." - Seneca

"There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty." - Wallace D. Wattles

"The reality of life is that your perceptions - right or wrong - influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place." - Roger Birkman

"Our life is what our thoughts make it." - Marcus Aelius Aurelius Antoninus (121-180), Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher.

"What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step." - Antoine De Saint-Exupery

"Vision is not enough unless combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps unless we also step up the stairs." - Vance Havner

"Nothing comes from doing nothing." - William Shakespeare

"To your subconscious mind the solutions to your problems of poverty is to become rich, but it is logically invalid for it to pursue this course of action if it has been told that it will make you a bad person." - Simon Hall

"To be ambitious for wealth and yet expecting to be poor; to be always doubting your ability to get what you long for, is like trying to reach east by traveling west. There is no philosophy which will help man to succeed when he is always doubting his ability to do so, and thus attracting failure." - Charles Bandouin

Do you see a pattern there? Well, I will spell it out for you. Here, then, is the Tao of Making Money:

Wealth Consciousness + Mindset + Strategies + Action = Great Wealth Guaranteed
