To see the Universe as it really is, we must abandon our tendency to conceptualize observations as things.,,, Physicists shy away from the truth because the truth is so alien to everyday physics. A common way to evade the mental universe is to invoke "decoherence" - the notion that "the physical environment" is sufficient to create reality, independent of the human mind. Yet the idea that any irreversible act of amplification is necessary to collapse the wave function is known to be wrong: in "Renninger-type" experiments, the wave function is collapsed simply by your human mind seeing nothing. The universe is entirely mental,,,, The Universe is immaterial — mental and spiritual. Live, and enjoy. *******henry.pha.jhu.edu/The.mental.universe.pdf Wheeler's Classic Delayed Choice Experiment: Excerpt: Now, for many billions of years the photon is in transit in region 3. Yet we can choose (many billions of years later) which experimental set up to employ – the single wide-focus, or the two narrowly focused instruments. We have chosen whether to know which side of the galaxy the photon passed by (by choosing whether to use the two-telescope set up or not, which are the instruments that would give us the information about which side of the galaxy the photon passed). We have delayed this choice until a time long after the particles "have passed by one side of the galaxy, or the other side of the galaxy, or both sides of the galaxy," so to speak. Yet, it seems paradoxically that our later choice of whether to obtain this information determines which side of the galaxy the light passed, so to speak, billions of years ago. So it seems that time has nothing to do with effects of quantum mechanics. And, indeed, the original thought experiment was not based on any analysis of how particles evolve and behave over time – it was based on the mathematics. This is what the mathematics predicted for a result, and this is exactly the result obtained in the laboratory. *******www.bottomlayer****/bottom/basic_delayed_choice.htm This following experiment extended Wheeler's delayed choice double slit experiment, which I referenced earlier, to highlight the centrality of 'information' in the Double Slit Experiment and refutes any 'detector centered' arguments for why the wave collapses: (Double Slit) A Delayed Choice Quantum Eraser - updated 2007 Excerpt: Upon accessing the information gathered by the Coincidence Circuit, we the observer are shocked to learn that the pattern shown by the positions registered at D0 (Detector Zero) at Time 2 depends entirely on the information gathered later at Time 4 and available to us at the conclusion of the experiment. *******www.bottomlayer****/bottom/kim-scully/kim-scully-web.htm The Experiment That Debunked Materialism - video - (delayed choice quantum eraser) *******www.youtube****/watch?v=6xKUass7G8w i.e. This preceding experiment clearly shows that the ‘material’ detector is secondary in the experiment and that a conscious observer, being able to know the information of which path a photon takes with local certainty, is primary to the wave collapsing to a particle in the experiment. It is also very interesting to note that some atheistic materialists seem to have a very hard time grasping the simple point of these extended double slit experiments, but to try to put it more clearly; To explain an event which defies time and space, as the quantum erasure experiment clearly does, you cannot appeal to any material entity in the experiment like the detector, or any other 3D physical part of the experiment, which is itself constrained by the limits of time and space. To give an adequate explanation for defying time and space one is forced to appeal to a transcendent entity which is itself not confined by time or space. But then again I guess I can see why forcing someone, who claims to be a atheistic materialist, to appeal to a non-material transcendent entity, to give an adequate explanation for such a ‘spooky’ event, would invoke such utter confusion on their part. Yet to try to put it in even more ‘shocking’ terms for the atheists, the ‘shocking’ conclusion of the experiment is that a transcendent Mind, with a capital M, must precede the collapse of quantum waves to 3-Dimensional particles. Moreover, it is impossible for a human mind to ever ‘emerge’ from any 3-D material basis which is dependent on a preceding conscious cause for its own collapse to a 3D state in the first place. This is more than a slight problem for the atheistic-evolutionary materialist who insists that our minds simply ‘emerged’, or evolved, from a conglomeration of 3D matter. "It was not possible to formulate the laws (of quantum theory) in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness." Eugene Wigner (1902 -1995) from his collection of essays "Symmetries and Reflections – Scientific Essays"; Eugene Wigner laid the foundation for the theory of symmetries in quantum mechanics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1963. Here is the key experiment that led Wigner to his Nobel Prize winning work on quantum symmetries: Eugene Wigner Excerpt: To express this basic experience in a more direct way: the world does not have a privileged center, there is no absolute rest, preferred direction, unique origin of calendar time, even left and right seem to be rather symmetric. The interference of electrons, photons, neutrons has indicated that the state of a particle can be described by a vector possessing a certain number of components. As the observer is replaced by another observer (working elsewhere, looking at a different direction, using another clock, perhaps being left-handed), the state of the very same particle is described by another vector, obtained from the previous vector by multiplying it with a matrix. This matrix transfers from one observer to another. *******www.reak.bme.hu/Wigner_Course/WignerBio/wb1.htm i.e. In the experiment the 'world' (i.e. the universe) does not have a ‘privileged center’. Yet strangely, the conscious observer does exhibit a 'privileged center'. This is since the 'matrix', which determines which vector will be used to describe the particle in the experiment, is 'observer-centric' in its origination! Thus explaining Wigner’s dramatic statement, “It was not possible to formulate the laws (of quantum theory) in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.” "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter." Max Planck - The Father Of Quantum Mechanics - Das Wesen der Materie [The Nature of Matter], speech at Florence, Italy (1944)(Of Note: Max Planck was a devoted Christian from early life to death.) Quantum Enigma:Physics Encounters Consciousness - Richard Conn Henry - Professor of Physics - John Hopkins University Excerpt: It is more than 80 years since the discovery of quantum mechanics gave us the most fundamental insight ever into our nature: the overturning of the Copernican Revolution, and the restoration of us human beings to centrality in the Universe. And yet, have you ever before read a sentence having meaning similar to that of my preceding sentence? Likely you have not, and the reason you have not is, in my opinion, that physicists are in a state of denial… *******www.uncommondescent****/intelligent-design/the-quantum-enigma-of-consciousness-and-the-identity-of-the-designer/ Centrality of Each Individual Observer In The Universe and Christ’s Very Credible Reconciliation Of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics Excerpt: I find it extremely interesting, and strange, that quantum mechanics tells us that instantaneous quantum wave collapse to its 'uncertain' 3-D state is centered on each individual observer in the universe, whereas, 4-D space-time cosmology (General Relativity) tells us each 3-D point in the universe is central to the expansion of the universe. These findings of modern science are pretty much exactly what we would expect to see if this universe were indeed created, and sustained, from a higher dimension by a omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, eternal Being who knows everything that is happening everywhere in the universe at the same time. These findings certainly seem to go to the very heart of the age old question asked of many parents by their children, “How can God hear everybody’s prayers at the same time?”,,, i.e. Why should the expansion of the universe, or the quantum wave collapse of the entire universe, even care that you or I, or anyone else, should exist? Only Theism offers a rational explanation as to why you or I, or anyone else, should have such undeserved significance in such a vast universe: ********docs.google****/document/d/17SDgYPHPcrl1XX39EXhaQzk7M0zmANKdYIetpZ-WB5Y/edit?hl=en_US Psalm 33:13-15 The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. From the place of His dwelling He looks on all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works. Alain Aspect and Anton Zeilinger by Richard Conn Henry - Physics Professor - John Hopkins University Excerpt: Why do people cling with such ferocity to belief in a mind-independent reality? It is surely because if there is no such reality, then ultimately (as far as we can know) mind alone exists. And if mind is not a product of real matter, but rather is the creator of the "illusion" of material reality (which has, in fact, despite the materialists, been known to be the case, since the discovery of quantum mechanics in 1925), then a theistic view of our existence becomes the only rational alternative to solipsism (solipsism is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist).

And as soon as the function of brain has been lost, like in clinical death or in brain death, with iso-electricity on the EEG, memories and consciousness do still exist, but the reception ability is lost. People can experience their consciousness outside their body, with the possibility of perception out and above their body, with identity, and with heightened awareness, attention, well-structured thought processes, memories and emotions. And they also can experience their consciousness in a dimension where past, present and future exist at the same moment, without time and space, and can be experienced as soon as attention has been directed to it (life review and preview), and even sometimes they come in contact with the “fields of consciousness” of deceased relatives. And later they can experience their conscious return into their body. *******www.nderf****/vonlommel_skeptic_response.htm A neurosurgeon confronts the non-material nature of consciousness - December 2011 Excerpted quote: To me one thing that has emerged from my experience and from very rigorous analysis of that experience over several years, talking it over with others that I respect in neuroscience, and really trying to come up with an answer, is that consciousness outside of the brain is a fact. It’s an established fact. And of course, that was a hard place for me to get, coming from being a card-toting reductive materialist over decades.

The subjects view a computer screen on which appear (at randomly varying intervals) a series of images, some of which are emotionally neutral, and some of which are highly emotional (violent, sexual....). In Radin and Bierman's early studies, skin conductance of a finger was used to measure physiological response They found that subjects responded strongly to emotional images compared to neutral images, and that the emotional response occurred between a fraction of a second to several seconds BEFORE the image appeared! Recently Professor Bierman (University of Amsterdam) repeated these experiments with subjects in an fMRI brain imager and found emotional responses in brain activity up to 4 seconds before the stimuli. Moreover he looked at raw data from other laboratories and found similar emotional responses before stimuli appeared. *******www.quantumconsciousness****/views/TimeFlies.html Quantum Coherence and Consciousness – Scientific Proof of ‘Mind’ – video *******www.metacafe****/watch/6266865/ Particular quote of note from preceding video; “Wolf Singer Director of the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research (Frankfurt) has found evidence of simultaneous oscillations in separate areas of the cortex, accurately synchronized in phase as well as frequency.

One of the first comprehensive lists of multiples was put together by William Ogburn and Dorothy Thomas, in 1922, and they found a hundred and forty-eight major scientific discoveries that fit the multiple pattern. Newton and Leibniz both discovered calculus. Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace both discovered evolution. Three mathematicians “invented” decimal fractions. Oxygen was discovered by Joseph Priestley, in Wiltshire, in 1774, and by Carl Wilhelm Scheele, in Uppsala, a year earlier. Color photography was invented at the same time by Charles Cros and by Louis Ducos du Hauron, in France. Logarithms were invented by John Napier and Henry Briggs in Britain, and by Joost Bürgi in Switzerland. ,,, For Ogburn and Thomas, the sheer number of multiples could mean only one thing: scientific discoveries must, in some sense, be inevitable. *******www.newyorker****/reporting/2008/05/12/080512fa_fact_gladwell/?currentPage=all List of multiple discoveries Excerpt: Historians and sociologists have remarked on the occurrence, in science, of "multiple independent discovery". Robert K. Merton defined such "multiples" as instances in which similar discoveries are made by scientists working independently of each other.,,, Multiple independent discovery, however, is not limited to only a few historic instances involving giants of scientific research. Merton believed that it is multiple discoveries, rather than unique ones, that represent the common pattern in science. *******en.wikipedia****/wiki/List_of_multiple_discoveries Bruce Charlton's Miscellany - October 2011 Excerpt: I had discovered that over the same period of the twentieth century that the US had risen to scientific eminence it had undergone a significant Christian revival. ,,,The point I put to (Richard) Dawkins was that the USA was simultaneously by-far the most dominant scientific nation in the world (I knew this from various scientometic studies I was doing at the time) and by-far the most religious (Christian) nation in the world.

DANCE WITH THE ELEPHANT: LIFE'S COSMIC EQUATION Purchase our book: DancewiththeElephant.us For more DWTE merchandise: DancewiththeElephant**** Info on our upcoming Workshops: DancewiththeElephant.info For more Inforamtion: DanceWithTheElephant**** Check out our Blog: DancewiththeElephant**** Don Calhoun and Duane Kuss co-author the ground breaking book "Dance with the Elephant: Life's Cosmic Equation" filled with life-changing stories and personal exercises. Duane: The final piece of the equation. Your Cosmic Legacy. This term probably needs some definition before jumping right into it. Why Cosmic? It means vast, immeasurable, incalculable, infinite and boundless. The tie to everything that has meaning and purpose. There is an endless chain of connection that ties all the galactic activities of the past to the informational and technical advances of the present. And this pattern will continue on into the future. Don: The word Cosmic here signifies the connection between the micro-role you play individually and how that at the same time is a part of the constantly changing macro-universe. Duane: Have you ever asked yourself what the driving force behind mans undeniable need to feel connected? Brene Brown, a well respected researcher, speaker and author on the topic of human behavior and interaction, drives home the need for human connection as the key factor to happiness and joy in life. The ah ha! for Don and me here is the fact we are all connected, not just fellow homo sapiens, but to the 13.7 billion years of cosmic evolution and every player that contributed along the way. The question here is not one of creation but one of identification. No one has to create connections to one another, all you have to do is identify the connections that already exist. Since the beginning of time, what has evolved is an infinite web of creative connections that tie all things in the universe together. Don: Do I need a life-time of playing cards, going bowling, attending athletic events and daily conversation to develop of relationship with you? Well, I think we have thrown that idea out the window by now. I can see the potential for a sincere, meaningful relationship in just minutes and at the most a couple hours if both parties are willing to dig deep and be real with each other. Duane: As for the legacy each of us leaves behind, the receptive choices we make along the journey of life all combine to direct what we do and who we touch during our born to death time. Who or what you choose to model your life after and how you direct your universal given creative power is all about your dance with the elephant. In the end, the blame or credit for your life's legacy all lies within you. Yes, you lived in the world during a specific space-time moment at a geographical location with a given set of cultural norms and values. But in the end your cosmic legacy adds up to how you choose to apply your creative power, your receptive choice and your faith during your millisecond moment in the space-time continuum. It is the culmination of your lifelong creative discovery process. The problem we are all challenged with has to do with the faith factor of the equation. In the final synopsis of your life there is no way to know that you did or did not fulfill your purpose and legacy. In the end, all that really matters is what you feel within. What you feel will certainly be the results of all our actions and interactions with the world, but in actuality it all comes down to a peace of mind. Did you step up to the plate and swing the bat or did you sit on the bench and look down at the dirt? Either way, the creative power and receptive choice was all yours. Your cosmic legacy and the creative interconnectedness you have with the universe will have purpose and meaning in the grand scheme of a constant evolution. Don: It's important to remember that it's not all about you. It is the interactions and the people you touch along the way that may have the greatest impact on your legacy. Whether you were a drunken bum or the President of the United States, for the people you interact with, your legacy has equal value and merit. Remember in the evolution of the universe, there is no such thing as good and bad, virtue and wickedness, right and wrong or purposeful and aimless. The universe has a creative destiny that will include your contribution regardless of the cosmic legacy you choose to create. Each of us has our Thomas Edison blueprint to fulfill. What will be your light bulb? How will your energy shine? What electric connections will you bring to the world around you? And through the connections you make with people throughout your life, how will your light shine even brighter? And finally, upon your death, will your cosmic legacy give rise to even greater connections and energy leaving a brighter future for the universe? there.

Richard Dawkins gençlere yönelik olarak Evren, Dünya, canlılar ve diğer birçok konuya ilişkin sorulara bilimle cevap verdiği son kitabı The Magic of Reality'deki "İlk İnsan Kimdi?" adlı bölümde bahsi geçen, gözle görülemeyen evrimi (diğer bir deyişle bakteri ve virüslerdeki kadar hızlı görülmeyen) kavrayabilmemiz için bir düşünce deneyi gerçekleştiriyor. Evrim sürekli devam eden bir süreç. Bu yüzden milyonlarca yıllık bir ağaç üzerinde sadece belli duraklardaki dallara bakarak çeşitli isimler veriyoruz: Homo sapiens (modern insan), Homo erectus, Homo neanderthalensis gibi... Hepsi bu zincirin bir devamı olduğundan ilk insan kimdi sorusu da anlamını yitiriyor. Önce bebek, sonra çocuk, sonra yetişkin, en sonunda da yaşlanmamız gibi bu kesintisiz süreç hep devam ediyor ve bebeklik, çocukluk vs. diye adlandırdığımız, ancak kendimizde göremediğimiz bu aşamaları fotoğraf karelerine aldığımızda bir ayrım yapabiliyoruz ancak. Kitap bir yayınevi tarafından henüz Türkçe'ye çevrilme aşamasında.

Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens) are the only extant members of the subtribe Hominina, a branch of the tribe Hominini belonging to the family of great apes. They are characterized by erect posture and bipedal locomotion; high manual dexterity and heavy tool use compared to other animals; and a general trend toward larger, more complex brains and societies.[3][4] Early hominins—particularly the australopithecines, whose brains and anatomy are in many ways more similar to ancestral non-human apes—are less often referred to as "human" than hominins of the genus Homo.[5] Several of these hominins used fire, occupied much of Eurasia, and gave rise to anatomically modern Homo sapiens in Africa about 200,000 years ago.[6][7] They began to exhibit evidence of behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago. In several waves of migration, anatomically modern humans ventured out of Africa and populated most of the world.[8] The spread of humans and their large and increasing population has had a profound impact on large areas of the environment and millions of native species worldwide. Advantages that explain this evolutionary success include a relatively larger brain with a particularly well-developed neocortex, prefrontal cortex and temporal lobes, which enable high levels of abstract reasoning, language, problem solving, sociality, and culture through social learning. Humans use tools to a much higher degree than any other animal, are the only extant species known to build fires and cook their food, and are the only extant species to clothe themselves and create and use numerous other technologies and arts. Humans are uniquely adept at using systems of symbolic communication (such as language and art) for self-expression and the exchange of ideas, and for organizing themselves into purposeful groups. Humans create complex social structures composed of many cooperating competing groups. Royal Mentor Lee suggest think and behave at top level.

GIÁP MẶT VỚI NGƯỜI RỪNG ( NGƯỜI TIỀN SỬ ) Ở TÂY NGUYÊN | NGƯỜI RỪNG LÀ CÓ THẬT VÀ Ở VIỆT NAM CÓ NGƯỜI RỪNG #challengediscovery #haythachthuctoi #nguoirung Trong 1 chuyến đi khám phá một số địa bàn vùng tây nguyên, tình cờ trò chuyện với một anh đồng bào ở vùng sâu thì được anh cho biết anh đã thấy người rừng. Câu chuyện của anh làm tôi tò mò và quyết định tìm hiểu một số tài liệu. Hiện nay có rất nhiều bằng chứng chỉ ra rằng, trong những cánh rừng tại việt nam, vẫn có những người rừng đang sinh sống Theo góc nhìn sinh học, trong họ vượn người thì chi người có rất nhiều loài ví dụ loài người Homo erectus, loài người Neanderthal, loài người Denisova...Các nhà khoa học tạm thời thống nhất các loài người khác đã tuyệt chủng để lại duy nhất một loài người còn tồn tại đó là homo sapien chính là chúng ta. Đặc biệt năm 1982 PGS.TS Trần Hồng Việt đã may mắn tìm thấy và chụp được dấu chân “người rừng” để lại sau cơn mưa đầu mùa trên đỉnh núi Ngọc Vin ( tây nguyên) và ông cũng khẳng định sau hơn 20 năm miệt mài tìm kiếm dấu vết “người rừng” “Người rừng là có thật và ở Việt Nam có người rừng” Bàn chân dài khoảng 28cm, rộng khoảng 12 cm. Các ngón chân rất dài, giữa lòng bàn chân có một vùng lõm rất sâu. Hôm nay mời các bạn cùng tôi nghe lại cuộc trò chuyện giữa tôi và anh đồng bào với nhan đề GIÁP MẶT VỚI NGƯỜI RỪNG Ở TÂY NGUYÊN. - 2 Quyết định bảo vệ người rừng ở việt nam Quyết định số 65/HĐBT của Hội đồng Bộ trưởng : Quyết định về việc tạm thời khoanh vùng núi Chư Môm Rây - Ngọc Vin thuộc huyện Sa Thầy, tỉnh Gia Lai - Kon Tum thành khu rừng cấm http://bit.ly/2HteF4f http://bit.ly/2T13pOy - Trong khuôn khổ video này chúng tôi xin được ẩn danh địa điểm tìm thấy người rừng.

-Imagen del vídeo: Prácticamente al completo, "La Fragua de Vulcano", una obra pictórica de Jacopo Bassano. La realizaría al óleo alrededor de 1577 y se encuentra actualmente en el madrileño Museo del Prado. No confundir con el cuadro distinto pero homónimo de Velázquez, que al óleo pintaría en Roma en 1630. También se encuentra actualmente en el Museo del Prado, donde ingresó como un homo sapiens el 5 de agosto de 1819. 'Y al pie de la fragua de la herrería, "hasiendo" los hierros al rojo "gorver"*, dichoso entre coplas pasaba la "vía" Frasquillo el gitano soñando un "queré". Querer que muy poco después "mardesía", porque a la que quiso de su vera huyó y pronto a la fragua "vorvió arrepentía" y el pobre Frasquillo así le cantó: -Como fundo las campanas quiero fundir tu querer pa' "orviar" que te he "querío" y dejar de "padeser". A la puerta de la fragua no me vengas a buscar, vivo sola con la pena, ay pena, de no "poerte orviá". "Er" tiempo pasaba y no conseguía fundir el recuerdo de aquel mal "queré", y cuando sus "brasos" los hierros torcía, veía la estampa de aquella mujer. Prima de mi alma, ¿por qué de mi vera te fuiste siguiendo a quien te engañó? Vete a correr mundo que yo, aunque me muera, ya no "pueo" quererte. Así Le cantó. -Como fundo las campanas quiero fundir tu querer pa' "orviar" que te he "querío" y dejar de "padeser". A la puerta de la fragua no me vengas a buscar, vivo sola con la pena, ay pena, de no "poerte orviá"'. * Se supone que ha de tratarse de una forma andaluza de decir una expresión de herreros, la cual no he encontrado. Bulerías por martinete compuestas por Montes y Ulecia. La presente versión cantada por Miguel Herrero se publicaría en 1944 con el sello Odeón en un disco que de cara contraria incluía "La Muerte del Piyayo". Pepe Blanco versionaría este "Al Pie de la Fragua" como bulerías con soleá y fandango en 1948 en un disco del sello Odeón que de cara contraria incluía a su vez su versión de "La Muerte del Piyayo".

No confundir con el cuadro distinto pero homónimo de Velázquez, que al óleo pintaría en Roma en 1630.

Y así Le cantó. -Ay, a buscar, a la puerta de la fragua no me vengas a buscar, vivo a solas con la pena, de no "poerte orviá", carita de Macarena'**. * Se supone que ha de tratarse de una forma andaluza de decir una expresión de herreros, la cual no he encontrado. ** Frase que no aparece en la versión de Miguel Herrero. En el mundo de la copla, a veces se compara caras llorosas de mujeres con la de la sevillana Virgen Macarena. Bulerías con soleá y fandango compuestas por Montes y Ulecia. La presente versión cantada por Pepe Blanco se publicaría en 1948 con el sello Odeón en un disco que de cara contraria incluía "La Muerte del Piyayo". También en mi canal, así como las versiones de Miguel Herrero.
