The Mind-Controlled Exoskeleton Is Here: A Dream of Walking Becomes Reality

The use of exoskeletons, robotic devices that fit around hips and legs, are part of a burgeoning and complex technology whose surface has only barely been tapped over the course of the last decade.
Originally called "brain-computer interface systems," research has been geared to helping the disabled regain mobility control via a blend of robotic and brain power. Reserachers at Korea University and the Technical Unversity of Berlin have developed new and exciting technologies that allow paraplegics to control a robotic exoskeleton by using their minds.

10 Powerful Life Lessons of the Placebo Effect

The relationship between our minds and our bodies is exceedingly complex, and often functions in ways that we simply haven't yet found a way to understand or explain in purely scientific terms. For decades, studies on the placebo effect have shown that patients who believed they were getting a treatment responded in ways that were similar or the same to those who were actually getting a treatment, showcasing an unexpected level of power of the brain over the body.

While the placebo effect itself is a fascinating topic of study, there are a lot of very practical and perhaps even inspirational lessons that can be taken away from this phenomenon and applied to everyday life. Here are just a few that we think are especially powerful that offer insights into motivation, mindfulness, and even happiness that we can all stand to benefit from.

How to Convince People That You Are Jesus

So you want people to believe that you're Jesus Christ.  Or, if you don't want to be tied down to anything so specific as Jesus, then you at least want people to think you are the physical embodiment of God on earth.

Who wouldn't want this?  The list of benefits is as long as my arm.

First off, if you're a man (and generally speaking, it mostly seems to be men who reach for this dream), then you get to have sex with all the women in the congregation.

Which if you think about it, is an incredible privilege for the women.  I mean, you're having sex with some gullible, emotionally fractured woman.  That woman, on the other hand, is having SEX WITH GOD.  Where to even begin?  Let's just call that one a Win/Win.

Oprah Winfrey’s Success Secrets Revealed

How did a young girl born into poverty in rural Mississippi, rise to become the most influential woman in the world?

While the odds of that happening may seem slim to none, Oprah Winfrey’s success proves that regardless of where you are from or what your socioeconomic status may be, you can still rise to the top.

After many years of research, my friend Tiffany uncovered a set of codes which Oprah and many other successful people used to gain power, fame and immense wealth.

Psychiatrist says: F–k happiness and f–k self-esteem

Say you’ve been to therapy, or bought a self-help book, or thought about doing either of those things. You may be wondering, “Why can’t I be happy?” “Why do I have such bad luck?” or “Why is my boss so unfair?”

One shrink has a novel solution: “F–k happy. F–k self-improvement, self-esteem, fairness, helpfulness and everything in between.”

Does Your Name Influence Your Career Choice?

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but would Usain Bolt, by any other name, be as fast? How much do our names determine what we do in life? We've taken a look at why a disproportionate number of those of you named Baker are probably bakers.

Contrary to what Juliet has to say about it, a rose by any other name probably wouldn't smell as sweet. There have been plenty of studies that show that the name given to a scent will affect how people feel about it.

Butyric acid is the chief olfactory influence found in both vomit and parmesan cheese, and while the cheese is an acquired taste for some, it's scent is far more popular than eau de vomit.

The World's Strangest Methods of Fortune Telling

We've all heard of astrology, numerology, and palm reading. But what if you want something a little less unconentional?

Want to know the future in the strangest possible way? You don't need crystal ball or a time machine. Just examine your moles or your fingernails or your cats. Really.

Ailuromancy or felidomancy

Simply observe the way your cat moves or jumps to determine the future – especially weather. A black cat crossing your path being a bad omen is an old piece of ailuromancy. Did your cat lick her ears three times? Company must be on the way. Right ear? It's a gentleman caller. Left ear? Expect a lady.

I tried Polyphasic sleep for a week and it felt like LSD

Cue the scene: Oakland, California. Early 90’s. Streaks of afternoon sun.
A preschool-aged me lies staring at the ceiling, back flush against a blue gym mat, in a quiet classroom. Around me, classmates do the same, some of them fidgeting nervously with their hands.

I’m still awake, as usual, but instead of spending the next half hour mentally cataloguing everything in the room, I decide to inquire further about this elusive nap thing. I turn to my friend, who is spooning a stuffed Tasmanian Devil on the mat across from mine.

“How do you go to sleep? Can you show me how?” I ask. She nods, slowly. “It’s easy.” Lip smack. Yawn. Lip smack. “You just go like this.” Her single open eye falls back closed, and in seconds, she is snoring.

Until recently, I still didn’t really ‘get it.’ I have always spent at least an hour, usually two, in bed, waiting for sleep. On nights when I have to be up early, I’ll worry so much about needing to get enough sleep that I get none. I was always ashamed of my inability to do something so hardwired into all of us.

The Top 20 Most Bizarre Scientific Experiments of All Time

By Alex Boese,
Author of Elephants on Acid and Other Bizarre Experiments
To research my new book, Elephants on Acid, I scoured scientific archives searching for the most bizarre experiments of all time — the kind that are mind-twistingly, jaw-droppingly strange... the kind that make you wonder, "How did anyone ever conceive of doing such a thing?"

Listed below are twenty of these experiments. You'll find all of them (and about 80 more) discussed in greater detail in my book.

#1: Elephants on Acid

What happens if you give an elephant LSD? On Friday August 3, 1962, a group of Oklahoma City researchers decided to find out.

Warren Thomas, Director of the City Zoo, fired a cartridge-syringe containing 297 milligrams of LSD into Tusko the Elephant's rump. With Thomas were two scientific colleagues from the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine, Louis Jolyon West and Chester M. Pierce.

297 milligrams is a lot of LSD — about 3000 times the level of a typical human dose. In fact, it remains the largest dose of LSD ever given to a living creature. The researchers figured that, if they were going to give an elephant LSD, they better not give him too little.

Thomas, West, and Pierce later explained that the experiment was designed to find out if LSD would induce musth in an elephant — musth being a kind of temporary madness male elephants sometimes experience during which they become highly aggressive and secrete a sticky fluid from their temporal glands. But one suspects a small element of ghoulish curiosity might also have been involved.

Whatever the reason for the experiment, it almost immediately went awry. Tusko reacted to the shot as if a bee had stung him. He trumpeted around his pen for a few minutes, and then keeled over on his side. Horrified, the researchers tried to revive him, but about an hour later he was dead. The three scientists sheepishly concluded that, "It appears that the elephant is highly sensitive to the effects of LSD."

In the years that followed controversy lingered over whether it was the LSD that killed Tusko, or the drugs used to revive him. So twenty years later, Ronald Siegel of UCLA decided to settle the debate by giving two elephants a dose similar to what Tusko received. Reportedly he had to sign an agreement promising to replace the animals in the event of their deaths.

Instead of injecting the elephants with LSD, Siegel mixed the drug into their water, and when it was administered in this way, the elephants not only survived but didn't seem too upset at all. They acted sluggish, rocked back and forth, and made some strange vocalizations such as chirping and squeaking, but within a few hours they were back to normal. However, Siegel noted that the dosage Tusko received may have exceeded some threshold of toxicity, so he couldn't rule out that LSD was the cause of his death. The controversy continues.

How the Whole World Conspires to Shower You With Blessings

By Rob Brezsny
Excerpt from the book Pronoia

Thousands of things go right for you every day, beginning the moment you wake up. Through some magic you don't fully understand, you're still breathing and your heart is beating, even though you've been unconscious for many hours. The air is a mix of gases that's just right for your body's needs, as it was before you fell asleep.

You can see! Light of many colors floods into your eyes, registered by nerves that took God or evolution or some process millions of years to perfect. The interesting gift of these vivid hues comes to you courtesy of an unimaginably immense globe of fire, the sun, which continually detonates nuclear reactions in order to convert its body into light and heat and energy for your personal use.

Did you know that the sun is located at the precise distance from you to be of perfect service? If it were any closer, you'd fry, and if it were any further away, you'd freeze. Here's another one of the sun's benedictions: It appears to rise over the eastern horizon right on schedule every day, as it has since long before you were born.

Do you remember when you were born, by the way? It was a difficult miracle that involved many people who worked hard on your behalf. No less miraculous is the fact that you have continued to grow since then, with millions of new cells being born inside you to replace the old ones that die. All of this happens whether or not you ever think about it.

On this day, like almost every other, you have awoken inside a temperature-controlled shelter. You have a home! Your bed and pillow are soft and you're covered by comfortable blankets. The electricity is turned on, as usual. Somehow, in ways you're barely aware of, a massive power plant at an unknown distance from your home is transforming fuel into currents of electricity that reach you through mostly hidden conduits in the exact amounts you need, and all you have to do to control the flow is flick small switches with your fingers.

You can walk! Your legs work wonderfully well. Your heart circulates your blood all the way down to replenish the energy of the muscles in your feet and calves and thighs, and when the blood is depleted it finds its way back to your heart to be refreshed. This blessing recurs over and over again without stopping every hour of your life.

One Simple Breathing Trick Will Smash the 100-Year Age Barrier

Is it possible for humans to live for 200 years, or even more? It seems improbable without some kind of freakish genetic modification, but this isn’t necessary according to ancient wisdom in the Bhagavad Gita, and the Tirukkural.

Among vertebrates, the tortoise is one of the longest living animals on our planet. Unconfirmed reports talk of the tortoise living for as many as 400 years, and it is not unusual to find a tortoise like Jonathan, that is 182 years old.

The Psychological Hangups of the Ultra-Rich

Bernie Sanders' unexpectedly popular presidential campaign features a lot of rhetoric that we don’t usually hear in mainstream politics. One striking example is the Vermont senator’s contention that the ultra-rich suffer from "psychiatric issues" that manifest in an addiction to money and a worldview divorced from reality.

How to Hack Into Your Flow State and Become Superhuman

If you want to do more, learn more, and gain more, you might want to think like surfer.

Surfing is a 1,000-year-old sport, and 20 years ago the biggest wave ever ridden was 25 feet. Today surfers push into waves 100 feet tall. Or consider snowboarding: In 1992, the biggest gap ever cleared was 40 feet; today that jump is 230 feet.

What's behind the insane progress in adventure sports? Flow, says Steven Kotler, author of The Rise of Superman: Decoding the Science of Ultimate Human Performance.

"Flow is an optimal state of consciousness, when you feel and perform your best," he says. "It's the moment of total absorption. Time speeds up or slows down like a freeze-frame effect. Mental and physical ability go through roof, and the brain takes in more information per second, processing it more deeply."

The Healing Power of Dreams

By David Hestrin / Source: Natural News

Robert Moss is the pioneer of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of shamanism and modern dreamwork. Born in Australia, he survived three near-death experiences in childhood. He is the author of Conscious Dreaming and most recently: The Secret History of Dreaming. He leads popular seminars all over the world and online courses.

David: I'd like to know what you see as the role of dreams throughout history with regards to healing!

Robert Moss: Well, you know most human cultures up until the modern era have valued dreams for a couple things in relation to healing. First of all, many people look to dreams for diagnosis of what's going on inside the body. One of the ways to understand dreams is that they might be messages from inside the body - reports from the front on what`s going on there.

The great Greek physician Galen always used to look at dreams with the idea that consciousness is traveling inside the body, during the body, and it brings back, through the vehicle of dream reports, accounts of what is right or wrong with it from which you can base, as a physician, the diagnosis of the condition and your recommendations on how to keep that body well... But in relation to healing - it`s about more than diagnosing physical symptoms; it's about understanding the nature - emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness or otherwise.

So most cultures across most of human history have valued dreams as x-rays or pictures of the state of the soul - the state of emotional balance - the state of your psyche - the state of the rest of you - including whether you're missing part of yourself because you lost a part of your vital energies somewhere in life.

One of the ways I work with dreams which is actually quite ancient is to looking to dreams for clues as to where someone might have lost a part of their vital energy, a part of their soul we might say, through pain, abuse, trauma, addiction, wrenching life choices, and to find clues from such dreams as to how to get the vital energy back and put it back into the body.
