‘A film crew from Russia spent eight days in the republic of Kazakhstan, in the village of Kalachi, located some 445 kilometers from the capital of Astana. The village became known for a strange sickness that was sowing panic among local residents. Thus, nearly every resident of the village can fall asleep at any time, whatever they may do. RT journalists made a special documentary about the bizarre phenomenon. ‘
‘The power of intentional thought and deliberate action is much greater than most people realize, and a Stanford University scientist claims to have accidentally come up with a way to bottle and store this intent for future use, even when the people who originally experienced it are not physically present.
This somewhat metaphysical concept was hatched by Dr. William Tiller, a former academic chair whose meditative ponderings led him to the unusual discovery that everything a person thinks about, plans or engages in with specific intent has vast power over the physical realm, often in ways that go unnoticed or that aren’t fully understood.’
‘The quest for a true invisibility cloak, seen in films such as Harry Potter, is the holy grail for physicists.
But while many have been able to briefly conceal objects from view, and even shield sounds, one team has developed a way to cloak entire events.
By concealing these events behind strands of laser light, the researchers could make it appear as if a moment – such as an object moving from one position to another – had spontaneously occurred of travelled inside a ‘bubble of time.’
‘Astronomers have revealed hypnotic images of swirls, loops and arches that trace the remarkable structure of our Milky Way’s magnetic field.
In what could rival works by Van Gogh, Esa claims that these remarkable images are some of the first to reveal the shape of the our galaxy magnetic barrier.
Scientists hope its patterns could someday help them gaze back in time to get a clearer picture of what the universe looked like just after the Big Bang.’
‘An expert claims the loud bangs which baffled Britons last night sounded like a type of experimental jet engine – which conspiracy theorists enjoy linking to a rumoured spy plane.
Dr Bhupendra Khandelwal added his comparison to a debate which began when hundreds of Twitter users from Aberdeen to Devon – and even New York – reported ’explosions’ which shook windows and disturbed sleeping children at around 10pm.
One resident in Croydon, South London, recorded the sounds on her phone in a mystery that has left Britons blaming meteors, an ’alien invasion’, ’the end of the world’… or just fireworks.’
‘A mysterious ‘beam’ of static electricity has been caught on camera making a passer-by’s hair stand on end.
In the clip, filmed outside Google’s headquarters in London, Simon Legrand is shown entering the field of electricity before his hair rises – silhouetted by a nearby street lamp.
As the camera then pans towards the building, a large crack of static electricity is heard before the video cuts out.’
‘What if the time part of the the space-time continuum equation was literally running out? Perhaps evidence suggests that time is slowly disappearing from our universe, and will one day vanish completely –a radical theory may explain a cosmological mystery that has puzzled scientists for years.’
‘To the average person, quantum mechanics is the convoluted, science fiction-y branch of physics. A radical new theory plays into that, proposing that parallel universes exist and interact with each other ‒ and that scientists may be able to test for them.
Prof. Howard Wiseman, a physicist at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, along with his collaborators Dr. Michael Hall, also of Griffith University, and University of California, Davis mathematician Dr. Dirk-Andre Deckert, published their new “many interacting worlds” (MIW) theory in the journal Physical Review X. They posited that other universes are real, exist in vast numbers and exert influence on each other.’
‘A full Moon can disturb a good night’s sleep, scientists believe.
Researchers found evidence of a “lunar influence” in a study of 33 volunteers sleeping in tightly controlled laboratory conditions.
When the Moon was round, the volunteers took longer to nod off and had poorer quality sleep, despite being shut in a darkened room, Current Biology reports.
They also had a dip in levels of a hormone called melatonin that is linked to natural-body clock cycles.’
