Scientific Study Reveals “Conspiracy Theorists” Are The Most Sane Of All

I was so happy to finally see a study done on the psychology of conspiracy beliefs.  It goes through the importance of belief systems in the acceptance or rejection of ‘conspiracy theories.’

If you consider yourself awakened and seeking the truth – especially in government matters, people are quick to label you a crazy conspiracy theorist just so they can validate themselves.

In this study, a large group of commenters were examined on a news website, surrounding the topic of 9/11. Out of the 2174 comments collected, 1459 were coded as conspiracist and 715 as conventionalist. Right away its evident more people are thinking critically about ‘conspiracies’ rather than just disputing them.

Free Hugs: A Case of Real Human Connection

Real Human Connection…  What does that even mean?  Have we lost touch with each other?  Do we have real connections anymore?  What about real honest relationships?

Are we afraid to be the real us in public or around our friends?  Do we hide behind labels, societies rules or our own fears?

Are we walking down the street afraid to strike up a conversation with another person?  How often are we completely surrounded by other people only to feel completely alone? Do we find ourselves feeling lonely and in the need of a big hug and no one is there to give us one?

In Melbourne, Australia one man is making a difference...

Scientists Propose Parallel Universes Really Exist

In a paper published in the journal Physical Review X, teams of scientists are FINALLY taking the ideas of interacting parallel worlds out of the realm of science fiction and into that of hard science.

The team proposes that parallel universes really exist, and that they interact. That is, rather than evolving independently, infinite realities influence one another by a subtle forces of attraction and repulsion, like an ebb and flow of ever flowing energy.
