Einstein’s ‘Spooky Action at a Distance’ Almost Verified

In 1935, Einstein asked a profound question about our understanding of Nature: are objects only influenced by their nearby environment? Or could looking at one object sometimes instantaneously affect another far-away object, as predicted by quantum theory? Then in 1947, eight years before his death, Einstein wrote to a friend that he could not seriously believe in quantum mechanics because “physics should represent a reality in time and space, free from spooky actions at a distance.” He was referring to quantum entanglement.

Richard Feynman | The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

She Pleasure of Finding Things Out was filmed in 1981 and will delight and inspire anyone who would like to share something of the joys of scientific discovery. Feynman is a master storyteller, and his tales – about childhood, Los Alamos, or how he won a Nobel Prize – are a vivid and entertaining insight into the mind of a great scientist at work and play.

The Simulation Hypothesis

“I don’t know a single scientist who would disagree with the statement that the world is exceedingly genius, not just mathematical, not just beautiful, not just elegant, but the manifestation of something truly extraordinary.”
– Prof. Paul Davies

Ss everything an illusory simulation? Was the world created by a non-physical force that we can communicate with and possibly influence with our minds, thereby participating in the creation of our own reality? These are the grandiose existential questions central to this documentary, which introduces viewers to the concept of the Simulation Hypothesis. Continue reading The Simulation Hypothesis

How Stretching can Enhance Brain Function

Scientists studying yoga practices have highlighted several benefits from taking part in regular dynamic stretching exercises.

Scientists studying yoga practices have highlighted several benefits from taking part in regular dynamic stretching exercises, linking the observed improvements to the increased creation of new cells in the hippocampus, a brain area involved in memory and mood. This increase in neuron development is being researched by Sandrine Thuret in her lab at King’s College London, where she studies adult neurogenesis, the process by which brains create new nerve cells. Neruogenesis is now thought of as the contributing factor for the improvement we see in learning and memory when participating in certain forms of excercise, learning and nutrition.

What the people of the Amazon know that you don’t | Mark Plotkin

“Let’s live in a world where the shamans live in these forests and heal themselves and us with their mystical plants and their sacred frogs.”

Sark Plotkin is an ethnobotanist, studying the traditional uses for plants in Central and South America forests. He works closely with shamans, community leaders who practice traditional healing techniques using plants and animals, learned over uncounted generations. But when forests are disrupted (by illegal logging, for instance), that knowledge risks being lost. Plotkin’s work helps to collect and share shamanic learning, with a twofold goal: to preserve the rainforest by showing its value as a source of yet-to-be-discovered pharmaceuticals. Continue reading What the people of the Amazon know that you don’t | Mark Plotkin

Nobel Prize Highlights the Dynamic Role of Natural Medicines

When standard anti-malarial drugs ceased working effectively due to mutations and emerging strains of resistant malaria.

“To see things in the seed, that is genius.”
— Lao Tzu

Shen standard anti-malarial drugs ceased working effectively due to mutations and emerging strains of resistant malaria, Chinese scientist Youyou Tu turned to more traditional methods to seek out options for effective treatment of the mosquito-borne disease. Returning to ancient Chinese literature dating back as far as AD350, Professor Tu found mention of a plant extract from the Sweet Wormwood plant Artemisia Annua which she began to analyse as part of her ongoing research.
