New Study Reveals That Our Brains Solve Problems Whilst We Sleep
A grain of truth is often to be found in age-old remedies, with science often proving concepts and advice that our forefathers have been using for centuries. When faced with a dilemma, how many times have we been advised to "sleep on it" in the hope that the right solution will come to us while we slumber?

It seems that science has now proved that this sage advice also has a basis in truth, according to the results of a recent study conducted by researchers at École normale supérieure in Paris.

The Middle East Explained. You WILL Understand!!
A friend sent this along:

We support the Iraqi government in the fight against ISIS.

We don’t like ISIS, but ISIS is supported by Saudi Arabia who we do like.

We don’t like Assad in Syria. We support the fight against him, but ISIS is also fighting against him.

We don’t like Iran, but Iran supports the Iraqi government in its fight against ISIS.

So some of our friends support our enemies, some enemies are now our friends, and some of our enemies are fighting against our other enemies, who we want to lose, but we don’t want our enemies who are fighting our enemies to win.

If the people we want to defeat are defeated, they could be replaced by people we like even less.

JZKnight offers Anne Strieber a surprising opinion about her illness: it's a blessing. From Whitley Strieber: "As the two of them discuss the pain and power of facing great illness in the context of lightness of spirit, a weighty burden lifted from my shoulders. I was given strength by this discussion between these two remarkable human beings."

JZ Knight, Ramtha and the Beyond
September 19, 2014
Whitley Strieber interviews the legendary JZ Knight, channeler of Ramtha, for the first time. Instead of the usual interview where the interviewer gets caught up in the validity of the channel, Whitley, who understands what channeling is and why it works, lets JZ really open up and tell us about the inner truth of creating one's own reality, and how it is something that can be learned.

You will probably never have heard JZ on the radio sounding quite like this, when she is being interviewed by somebody with long experience of the numinous world and respect for her own forty years of experience.

Is The Universe A Hologram?
As the hot debate over whether the next "Miss Universe" beauty pageant will take place in 2014, 2015 or not all, the real question we should be asking ourselves is: what actually is the Universe? Is it the vast, limitless vacuum of space that we conventionally perceive it to be, or could it be...a hologram?

And if it was, would we ever know?

A unusual experiment, conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, in Batavia, Illinois, is attempting to find the answers to this and other mind-blowing questions regarding the universe we live in. Using a unique device called the Holometer, scientists have begun to collate data that is trying to detect the smallest unit in the universe.

An Unlikely New Cancer Cure...From Cat Poop!
Scientists have discovered that a parasite normally found in cat faeces could help them to formulate a cancer-fighting vaccine.

Though Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii), a single-celled parasite, is happiest when hanging out in a cat’s intestines, it can live in any warm blooded animal and affects about one-third of the world’s population, including 60 million Americans. Most people have no symptoms, but some experience a flu-like illness, particularly those with suppressed immune systems who can develop a serious infection if they encounter T. gondii. Pregnant women are also advised to take extra care not to come into contact with the bacteria as it can threaten the health of unborn babies and cause miscarriage, still birth or birth defects.
