Recent Public Comments Forum: The Scole ExperimentsPosted:12/18/2012 6:13:35 AMThe Scole experiments can barely be called that. There were all sorts of preconditions that had to be met. Lights had to be off, certain things HAD to be in the room, etc. It isn't an experiment without a control. Just because a lot of freaky things happen in a room... I highly doubt that it would stand up to the rigors of my own inspection. I watched the documentary and got the strong feeling the room was rigged with lots of gimmicks. And, despite the proclaimed YEARS of research...they had about five seconds of footage and none of it was conclusive at all. While I firmly do believe in the existence of ...something...after death, I don't believe the nonsense in the Scole room was anything but trickery. If I was in their situation and had a fraction of the evidence they claimed...you can sure as hell be I'd have video, pictures, control groups, duplicate experiments to get the same results, pages and pages of data with moon phases, solar activity, my own health... And I would get similar things from a massive group of experts. Doctors, physicists, engineers, psychologists. Where is their data? Their footage?Forum: visons I guessPosted:9/3/2012 7:43:22 AMI'm not really surprised you are seeing things like that or dreaming them. Every day there is news of death and destruction, and the media loves to find it and broadcast it. Earthquakes, hurricanes, or today...a bomb in Pakistan. You might just be having anxiety or fear. It seems to me that there is a general consensus among everyone...a sort of unspoken agreement that "something" is about to happen. Or that things are changing. Everyone is a little on edge, and I bet there might be a little mass hysteria brewing. I would assume you are just sensitive to a lot of the chaos these days. However, if your visions prove to be prophetic...accurate...you should share that. Do they feel like things that are GOING to happen? Do they have a sense of familiarity? I don't really believe in hell. There isn't quantitative evidence for it. But there IS quantitative evidence that suggests people can witness future events, or current ones remotely.Forum: Ancient sound studios..??Posted:8/24/2012 9:13:23 AMI wouldn't be surprised at all. Music is a global phenomenon, and its principles appear in societies separated by thousands of miles. Concepts like harmonics, multiphonics, and pitch control are seen in traditional music from societies that historically had NO contact with one another. I would think that a great deal of structures were recognized to help in harmonics for chanting and religious music. Youtube up some mongolian throat singing. Or "overtone" singing. This is some pretty ancient music and it would sound amazing in am amplification chamber.Forum: I SOULD HAVE DIED BUT INSTEAD I HAVE BECOME ENLIGHTENED Posted:8/21/2012 7:50:20 AMYou know what this sounds like? This reads exactly like a randomly generated paragraph. I get the impression someone is trolling.Forum: UFO NOT HIDING ANYMORE THEY ARE FLYING IN PLAIN SIGHT OVER HACIENDA LA PUENTE PLANE TRAFFIC LOOK UPPosted:8/17/2012 9:20:12 AMPics or it didn't happen. Typing entirely in capital letters all but nullifies your claims, and certainly doesn't lend any urgency to what you have to say.Forum: Man dont know what to say really but in the knick of timePosted:8/12/2012 6:46:41 PMMy brain just imploded.Forum: Crystals And Other DimensionsPosted:8/5/2012 8:17:39 AMI agree with spiritech. Acoustic resonance can be achieved by practically any medium as long as it is shaped correctly. But finding a crystal shaped properly would be near impossible. Tuning forks are designed by their composition and shape to resonate with specific frequencies. The more expensive the set, the more specific the frequency. Also spiritech said the key word "electricity." Crystals come alive with that stuff, mostly because their molecular structure is highly organized, like a superconductor. Your statement "resonance of a musical note in tune with another has an effect on the universe" is awkward for me. Firstly...no. It really doesn't. Scientifically, you could make all the cacophony you want and it wouldn't compare to a second of the noise on the sun's surface. However, I will agree that it has an effect on people. Music is...quite honestly...the most amazing thing humans have created. Aside from cinnamon rolls. But again, music doesn't change or add any sensory ability. It can help us change brainwaves and a few physiological states, but that is it. I'm getting a huge Bill and Ted vibe from this whole discussion.Forum: Binaural beatsPosted:8/5/2012 8:02:16 AMNope, it is bogus and they want your money. Here's why. They are confusing two different kinds of science. Firstly, calming music DOES have a pretty impressive reaction. People can induce alpha brain waves much more quickly if they are relaxed using music, warm milk, a soft blanket.... These states are not some sort of altered consciousness that encourage lucid dreaming. They are states you will go into anyway during normal sleep cycles. All this nonsense about two different frequencies hitting different ears.... Complete idiocy. If a pianist plays a perfect fifth using C and G, the both notes are registered in both ears at the same time, which is vastly more complex. Essentially, if there was any foundation to their claims....you would slip into an altered state every time you heard Fur Elise, ACDC, or any combination of the harmonic series. So to answer your question...yes. We can measure brainwaves which DO change according to external stimuli like music. To answer it in more detail...no...these binaural beats are just a con to get money. It is no more effective scientifically than listening anything else you find comforting. I might also point out that there is a popular method now of advertising things that don't apply to us. For example, a TV with a refresh rate of over 160 hz is just a con to get your money. Why? Because our brains can't tell the difference after 160 or so. I haven't looked into it, but I'm sure a bitrate has a limit too. I know that as we get older, the higher bitrate we need to retain auditory information. But most people can't tell the difference between 92 or 128 kbps, let alone 300. Also, I do know that mp3 encoding drastically reduces the bitrate. This is to reduce the size of music, not the clarity. True music connoisseurs record in analog where there is a massively high bitrate. But to the layman, we couldn't tell anyway. But having a high bitrate doesn't mean you can induce magical stages of consciousness. For that, we have to meditate and train ourselves for many many years.Forum: Crystals And Other DimensionsPosted:7/29/2012 11:09:59 PMPrimal, I'd be very interested in your documentation for meta-analysis. Science has indeed brushed on the topic of crystals and their oddities. They are bizarre growing minerals, varying in density and completion. They keep time, they split light and they are uniform from the molecule on up. In the case with water crystals, they seem to respond to human emotion. Would you like to share you information with me?Forum: Higgs boson and what was the big bang. Posted:7/29/2012 11:06:16 PMI did mention before that I FEEL as if we have souls. And I'm self-aware, which is a signature of consciousness. We can measure consciousness...medically speaking with brainwaves and such. We can discern between a consciousness and brain death. But we can't measure a soul, or lack thereof. In this case, as with most scientists, I would say our instinct overrides data. All of us feel a presence that we identify as "soul". But even without a soul or sentience, we wouldn't be empty husks. We simple would be part of nature....whole....embellished. Ants, trees, worms...all have their parts to play, and quite frankly, they play it better than we do. Don't underestimate the more simple forms of life.
