Scientists Find a way to Generate Electricity -- From Simple Seawater
Scientists have discovered a reliable way to extract renewable energy from ordinary seawater. The research team, from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne's Laboratory of Nanoscale Biology in Switzerland, employed a natural process called osmosis, where a fluid permeates through a membrane from one side to another.

Could the Milky Way Galaxy be a Giant Wormhole?
A new and somewhat radical theory has been proposed by an international group of researchers, in that the center of the Milky Way galaxy might turn out to be a giant wormhole, with the mouth of the wormhole possibly spanning the breadth of the entire galaxy.

The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization
July 22, 2016
The human mind is both our best friend and our worst enemy. In this interview, Carl Johan Calleman, a true man of wisdom, tells us about the origins of the mind and explains how we can both free ourselves from its delusions and make use of its strength. He shows how consciousness is evolving and changing, and what we can expect in this increasingly chaotic time from our own mind, as it strives to find the path to survival and growth.

Inuit Elders Observe the Effects of Climate Change on their Way of Life
One of the notable aspects of climate change that has been observed is the further toward the poles one looks, the more pronounced global warming's impact becomes. While the tropics have warmed somewhat, average temperatures in the Artic have soared: the North Pole was a full degree warmer than Seattle on Dec 30 2015, and while the contiguous U.S. broke a 3.3ºF (1.83ºC) above-average heat record for June of this year, Alaska saw a temperature record of nearly three times that level for the same month, at 9ºF (5.0ºC) above average.

Three Suns, a Dwarf Planet, and Juno: The Latest in Astronomy News
An exoplanet 320 light-years from Earth has been found in a trinary star system, photographed by the ESO Very Large Telescope in Chile. Aside from having the distinction of being one of mere handful of exoplanets that have been directly imaged, the planet, labeled as HD 131399Ab, has a year that lasts 550 Earth years, as it orbits the large central star.

China’s Tiangong-1 Space Station Could Plummet to Earth in an Uncontrolled Reentry
An Asian studies expert and amateur satellite tracker have voiced their concerns over the possibility that China’s Tiangong-1 space station may be de-orbiting without control from the ground. The station, launched in 2011, was a temporary testbed for the technologies for Tiangong-2, a permanent station scheduled to be launched in September of this year. Beijing's original plan was to de-orbit the spacecraft in 2013, but Tiangong-1, Chinese for "Heavenly Palace 1", remained in orbit after that date, conducting long-term endurance tests of the now unmanned station's components.

June Sets New Temperature Records in the U.S., Amid Billion-Dollar Weather Disasters
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced that June of 2016 was the hottest month of June on record for the contiguous United States, since temperature records began in 1880. The average temperature seen in the Lower 48 over the month was 71.6ºF (22.1ºC), a full 3.3ºF (1.83ºC) above the 20th century average, and breaking the previous record of 71.6ºF (22.0ºC), set in 1933.

Alaska followed the continuing trend of northern regions seeing the largest gains, seeing an average temperature of a whopping 9ºF (5.0ºC) above average, handily beating the 1981 record of 6.5ºF (3.6ºC) over average.

Building a Light Body
In this edition of Awakening, Whitley Strieber calls on a powerful and profoundly informative encounter experience he had week before last in Texas to offer a way of creating the legendary "light body" that is at the center of all transformative experience. This is the first time that this has been explained without any symbolism attached to it. In the past, this information has always been transmitted through the filter of religious doctrine and belief.

Researchers Build a Hybrid Machine-Animal Stingray
Researchers at Harvard University have built a light-sensitive, self-propelled artificial machine-organism, in the form of a tiny robot stingray. The project was done in an effort to test the feasibility of making hybrid replacement organs for human patients, such as bioartificial hearts, that could use natural muscle motions to function, as opposed to the electrical operation that today's prosthetics require.
