Study Shows: Adventurous People Perceive The World In An Entirely Different Way - TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

A new study has found that those who are more open to adventure can see the world entirely differently from those who aren’t. One of the main reasons is due to the fact that if you are open to new experiences and willing to try new things then your brain is able to take in more information than others, whilst also combining that information in a unique way. Reports have suggested that this could be an indication of why those people are also more creative.

This Guy Invented A Homemade Beehive To Save The Bees, And It’s Going Viral - TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

Bees have been in the media spotlight recently due to their declining populations and the huge implication that their dwindling numbers are having on food produce. Due to this, reports have claimed that beehives are now disappearing at an alarmingly rapid rate, which is largely due to pesticides and mites, as well as climate change.

As people are recognising the seriousness of the issue, many are trying their best to help by keeping their own beehives, which is a surprisingly simple, but very effective, task to carry out. Not only will it help declining bee populations, it will also mean that you can produce your own organic honey for your personal consumption.

Short Video Reveals “What It Actually Means To Be A Shaman” - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

The word Shaman is derived from the Siberian word “Saman” which means to know. Shaman are healers in there many forms and many modern day Shaman go through their lives without ever correlating their abilities with the word. This also works in the same way with many calling themselves Shaman without the abilities and/or right intentions to actually heal others.

Shaman speak the language of energy and have an unspoken way of understanding what needs healing within a person. The Shaman can access this knowing by entering altered states of consciousness and communicating with the spirits- by training the mind, through the use of psychedelic substances and/or by altering the senses. This short video explores the roots of Shamanism and what it actually means to be a Shaman.

The Illusion Of Separation: 5 Things Every Human Being Has In Common - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

Many cultures across the globe look at humanity as a singular unit, meaning if I feel pain it is just a reflection of the collective pain we are all experiencing, if I succeed, we are all succeeding and vice versa. This is a different narrative from that which is currently perpetuated in the competitive society that is advertised daily in the media, and encouraged by the social constructs that underpin western society.

The truth is we are all the same. Genetically we are made up of the same stuff, we all bleed the same, feel the same emotions (just at different degrees) and we are all individual cells in an organism in which if we do not work together, the organism is slowly destroyed. This is apparent from the current state of the environment, the turbulent relations between many countries and the inequality that has rapidly widened in recent times.

We are all the same, and I don’t say this as a wishy washy hippy- thinking we should all just join hands singing all you need is love and all the problems in the world will vanish. It is just stating the obvious, and in this article I am going to share 5 things that we all share common ground on:

We Are All Human

How The Financial System Is Being Used To Disempower Us - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

A way in which we can conceptualise the banking system is by imagining 100 people all being given $100 and as a result of this they are expected to pay back $110 at the end of the month. The only way in which you can earn extra money is by earning it from someone else in this group of 100. So there is $10000 in circulation, but $11000 needs to be paid back. In the best of situations this would mean 10 people would end up with nothing and go bankrupt, and the other 90 would be able to continue the cycle. But in our current system it does not work in this way as there is such inequality. It is more like 10 people have $5000 each and the 90 get $55.55 each, but still need the $110 at the end of the month. So as a result they have to borrow the extra $54.45 from one of the 10 with $5000 to keep on going, but for this to happen they will need to pay more interest and the never ending cycle continues.

Lion Poachers Caught After Plans To Poison Big Cats Were Revealed - TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

Following weeks of wildlife crisis throughout Africa, two suspected lion poachers were caught and arrested earlier this week at Letaba River Lodge in South Africa. According to Andre Coppen of Canine Security, who are the group that are responsible for the arrests, information was received about a planned poaching scheduled for upcoming evening. The anti-poaching group deployed a team in the lion encampment where the poachers were due to arrive earlier in the evening, and stayed to wait for the poachers after the lions had been moved to a safe enclosure.

At around eight in the evening, two suspects cut a hole in the boundary fence which allowed them access into the lodge property. As they headed towards the lion enclosure the team lying in wait pounced on them and they were apprehended. From searching the poachers’ bags, reports were able to determine that the pair had planned to poison the lions with chickens that had been laced with an unknown toxin. As well as poisoned chickens, knives, garden shears and other implements commonly used by lion poachers were also found.

New Testing Has Found Potentially Harmful Levels Of Pesticides In US Honey - TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

A study has found evidence of a pesticide that is linked to cancer within samples of honey.

After facing public pressure to test samples of US food for presence of the pesticide, the Food and Drug Administration found new evidence of residues from the weed killer glyphosate within honey. All of the samples that the FDA recently tested contained glyphosate residues, and some of the honey showed levels that were double the limit that is allowed in the European Union, according to documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. There is currently no legal tolerance level for glyphosate in honey in the United States.

Marijuana Has Been Named “The Super Antibiotic” Of The Future - TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

Marijuana has the potential to stop MRSA, according to studies. Dr. Keiji Fukuda, the Assistant Director General for the World Health Organization’s Health Security department, has explained that antibiotic resistant bacteria are now one of the top health concerns in the world, as “common infections and minor injuries, which have been treatable for decades, can once again kill”. The creation of “superbugs” have emerged from the antibiotics that were designed to treat them initially. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) causes over 10,000 deaths each year, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and is a direct by-product of the overuse of antibiotics.

Food Sourced From Biodynamic Farms “Tastes Better” According To Farmers - TruthTheory

by Jess Murray Truth Theory

Biodynamic farming is becoming increasingly more common within the United States, but what does biodynamic really mean, and is it more effective than organic farming?

John Chester, a filmmaker from California, quit his job to become a farmer with his wife, Molly. They now run a 213-acre biodynamic and organic farm in Moorpark, California, and have since been recognised by the National Wildlife Federation and the North American Butterfly Association for supporting such a huge array of wildlife, which is a recognition that is seldom given to farms. Chester said, “I’m trying to feed my neighbors – and if everyone did that, we would be able to replicate this.”
