Scientists Grow Tiny Human Brain in Lab

Miniature "human brains" have been grown in a lab in a feat scientists hope will transform the understanding of neurological disorders.

The pea-sized structures reached the same level of development as in a nine-week-old foetus, but are incapable of thought.

The study, published in the journal Nature, has already been used to gain insight into rare diseases.

In Search of David Copperfield's Fountain of Youth

By Adam Leith Gollner,
The Book of Immortality

Several years ago, the magician David Copperfield issued a press release stating he'd discovered the fountain of youth on his private islands in the Bahamas. "We found this liquid that in its simple stages can actually do miraculous things," Copperfield claimed. "You can take dead leaves, they come into contact with the water, they become full of life again. Bugs or insects that are near death come in contact with the water, they fly away. It's an amazing thing, very exciting."

Copperfield had hired biologists and geologists to examine the fountain's potential effects on humans. Until the tests were carried out, the magician said, he was refusing anyone else access to the water. Its precise location--a spot where "everything is more vibrant, ageless, and full of life"--is a secret.

Can Science Cure Religious Extremism?

Religious fundamentalism and cruelty to children may one day be treated in the same way as mental illness, a neuroscientist has speculated.

Kathleen Taylor, a research scientist at Oxford University's Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, says strong negative beliefs could be eradicated using techniques already in the works.

Dr Taylor was speaking at the Hay Literary Festival in Wales when she was asked what she forsaw as positive developments in neuroscience in the coming years, The Times reports.

She replied: "One man's positive can be another man's negative. One of the surprises may be to see people with certain beliefs as people who can be treated.

"Someone who has for example become radicalised to a cult ideology – we might stop seeing that as a personal choice that they have chosen as a result of pure free will and may start treating it as some kind of mental disturbance.

Top 10 Astounding Events You Could Live To See

Humans have always wondered about the future. Whether by means of astrology or by palm readings -- or through plain imagination -- millions of us wish to grab some glimpse of the path ahead. The following ten entries are based on legitimate global studies and scientific prediction -- many are already in the planning stage -- rather than on mere superstition.

From the exciting to the terrifying, we certainly have an interesting road ahead of us, although it's by no means a road free from peril or chaos -- as you shall see.

How to Release Anger, Get Rid of Pain, and Finally Enjoy Peace

In 1952, at age 42, a wealthy New York physicist and entrepreneur was sent home to die.

His body was riddled with disease, and he had less than two weeks to live.

Confounded by his condition, he decided to 'figure out' how to cure himself.

A short time later, that man, Lester Levenson, discovered something so transformative that he rid himself of all his physical problems and entered a state of profound peace that never left him through the day he died on January 18, 1994 … an amazing 42 years later.

What Lester discovered has passed on to Hale Dwoskin, who has helped hundreds of thousands in the last 30 years.

Hale created a very popular, professional self-study course, and now you get to use it for free for six days in September.

How to Heal Yourself (and lose weight) with Mind Power

What is the cause of as much as 90% of illnesses?
The answer will surprise you.

According to the legendary Jose Silva, after 50 years of research, he said "90% of all illnesses are caused by the mind."

Today, science is discovering so much more about the mind and it's influence on the body that many are saying that this is probably true.

But just how powerful is the mind's hold on the body?

Listen to this....

It's a story featured in Shawn Achor's book, The Happiness Advantage.

The Sneaky Mind Trick That Made Them Lose Weight Automatically

It started when scientists were studying a particular group of hotel maids.
They realized the maids are often clinically obese even though they worked very hard on a daily basis. I mean, running up and down floors and changing bed covers, carrying heavy vacuum cleaners and flipping over mattresses is actually pretty hard work.

By right, these maids should be burning more calories than the average women. But why were they still obese?

Baffled, the researchers decided to dive into that question.

They created a fake survey to quiz those hotel maids for feedback regarding their work.

But in reality, the survey had nothing to do with their "work".

Instead, during the survey, researchers planted an idea in each of those hotel maid's minds.

And the idea was this. At the end of each "fake" survey, the researcher would say something along these lines to the maid:

"Wow Caroline, by the way, based on what you're telling me you're working really hard and you should be burning about a 1000 calories a day. That's equivalent to a good cardio workout. You must be really fit."
That's all.

Thats all the researchers said. The weird thing is, after 30 days, when the researchers tested the maids again, they found that these group of maids had lost weight and lowered their cholesterol more than the group of maids who were told nothing.

Isn't that incredible?

Simply by planting an idea in someone's mind, could directly affect their bodies.
That's the power of your mind over your body.

Here's How to Utilize This Amazing Power

It's the biggest online event in healing that's happening right now.
The idea is to get free healing information and insights out to millions.
Information that helps promote the understanding of the crucial role our minds plays in healing.

Take a peek. This is NOT something you will see very often.

Russell Targ and the Reality of ESP

The Reality of ESP
I recently had the privilege of interviewing Russell Targ, an eminent physicist and researcher in extra-sensory perception.

He has quite a professional pedigree: Not only is he one of the great minds who developed the laser, he also helped to manage the US Army's "Remote Viewing" program: An experimental unit devoted to using psychic powers to spy on the Soviet Union and other enemies, in which participants were given a location thousands of miles away and told to try to visualize what they "saw" there in their minds.

Targ's latest book, The Reality of ESP: A Physicist's Proof of Psychic Abilities, collects data obtained over the course of many years spent studying ESP, including from his years managing Remote Viewers.

It's a a great read, even if you don't believe in psychic powers at all. Targ is certainly convinced that there's something there. After the military shuttered the psychic spy program, Targ and a bunch of psychics got together to attempt to predict stock market fluctuations, and were actually successful doing so. It still could be chance, but Targ presents some compelling evidence that it wasn't.

Top 20+ Inspirational or Truth-Revealing Movies

If you are looking for an outstanding movie that you have not yet seen, then this is an article for you. The following is a collection of inspirational movies -- some spiritual, others just hard facts coated with good acting:

Peaceful Warrior

Gives a great look at the importance of living in the now, and sheds light on the role that the mind can play in clouding your inner guidance. Shows the limitless potential we all carry, while emphasizing that there is more to life than just what we have and what we chase in the form of materials and success. Based on the true story of Dan Millman.

The Matrix

Gives a great representation of exactly what we are to the Elite of the world –batteries. We fuel their entire matrix and designed system. Perhaps even more profound is how this film reveals what it is like to awaken and step out of The Matrix into the real world. Only the minds stories and your ego are what limit you.

6 Unconventional Ways to Be Happier

There isn't a single human being who doesn't want it, and for many, it is the primary pursuit in life.

Conventional wisdom tells us that we need a good job, a great family life, and 11.5 months of vacation time to be happy. But we're going to focus on some lesser known factors of happiness that anyone can apply immediately.

Orgasms Better Than Sudoku for Brain Power

According to Professor Barry Komisaruk, orgasms are more stimulating to the brain than solving a crossword puzzle or a completing a Sudoku table.

Komisaruk, 72, is a neuroscientist who has done a lot of research into the relationship between orgasms and brain activity. He claims that the sensation increases total brain activity, whereas a puzzle activates only relatively localized regions.

He published the first evidence of brain regions involved in orgasm in women ten years ago.

Is Hypnobirth the Next Childbirth Fad?

What may be the world's most closely watched pregnancy might have culminated in an unusual type of birth: hypnobirth, or childbirth using hypnosis.

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, reportedly chose hypnobirth for her first child, according to the International Business Times.

The IB Times also reported that the duchess had used hypnosis to recover from her morning sickness last year.

Advocates of hypnobirthing claim the technique reduces — but does not eliminate — the pain of labor and childbirth, thereby decreasing the need for epidurals and other pain-management drugs.

Free Live Webinar - Advanced Mind Science

Are you available to have your mind expanded this Thursday at 8pm EDT?
Two of my good friends, Pete Craig and Saj P, are hosting an exclusive meet-up call to share an underground self-improvement technology that I've never heard ANYONE discuss before.

If you can make yourself available, I'd HIGHLY recommend you jump on that call. It's free, and what they'll share in those 90 minutes will be absolutely blow you away... it's unlike *anything* I'd ever heard before.

If you've never heard of these guys, let me fill you in on a little background. Saj went from broke to the owner of a business that pulled multiple 7 figures annually -- within the space of 2 months.

His life was flipped around when he started experimenting with a little-known realm of psychology that he is convinced is the single most powerful way to break through mental limitations, and transform your behavior patterns... effortlessly and automatically.

If you're expecting this to have anything to do with NLP, hypnosis, subliminal programming, the Law of Attraction or any other popular self-help buzz-word -- think again.

In my 20+ years in the industry, I'd NEVER heard of it before... and was amazed when they demonstrated it to me live over the phone and I saw it work in 60 seconds flat.

I'd highly recommend you experience it for yourself live, this Thursday at 8pm EDT.

Out-of-Body Experiences -- Real or Imagined?

I must admit that as a teenager I was fascinated by the idea of out of body experiences (OBEs), but after reading countless books and no success at leaving my body I came to the conclusion it was all hooey, that was until I met author Graham Nicholls and had a conversation that almost changed my mind.

I was immediately struck by the scientific way this 'OBEr' looks at things, he comes across as humble, even skeptical, despite having had out-of-body and other inexplicable experiences since his childhood.

It all started for Graham at around the age of twelve, when he began to have some initial out-of-body experiences. "I remember floating a few feet off the ground in an upright, or vertical position." He continues that these early events didn't last long, but he remembers they inspired him to learn more. He explains he even spent 6 months trying to induce an OBE intentionally. When he did succeed he says he still didn't know for sure that what was happening was real, so he spent the subsequent years exploring as much as he could to verify his experiences, or dismiss them.

How the Ouija Board Really Works

Ouija board cups and dowsing wands – just two examples of mystical items that seem to move of their own accord, when they are really being moved by the people holding them. The only mystery is not one of a connection to the spirit world, but of why we can make movements and yet not realise that we're making them.

The phenomenon is called the ideomotor effect and you can witness it yourself if you hang a small weight like a button or a ring from a string (ideally more than a foot long). Hold the end of the string with your arm out in front of you, so the weight hangs down freely. Try to hold your arm completely still. The weight will start to swing clockwise or anticlockwise in small circles. Do not start this motion yourself. Instead, just ask yourself a question – any question – and say that the weight will swing clockwise to answer "Yes" and anticlockwise for "No". Hold this thought in mind, and soon, even though you are trying not to make any motion, the weight will start to swing in answer to your question.
