I have a huge knowledge bank of all things completely weird. But there are some really bizarre things that have science behind them as well as some very reputable people and institutions – and most people don’t even know about them! So here are just a few:
1. Spooky Action At a Distance (aka Quantum Entanglement).
You know when Einstein calls something “spooky” it’s got to be interesting! According to this article in Technology Review, “Entanglement arises naturally when two particles are created at the same point and instant in space, for example. Entangled particles can become widely separated in space. But even so, the mathematics implies that a measurement on one immediately influences the other, regardless of the distance between them. Einstein and co pointed out that according to special relativity, this was impossible and therefore, quantum mechanics must be wrong, or at least incomplete.”
Now, don’t quote me on this, but I’ve also heard that if you remove a queen ant from its colony, the colony will continue to function – no matter how far away you take the queen. However, if you kill the queen, the colony collapses. This suggests the same kind of non-local phenomenon. Some sort of information transfer that doesn’t depend on the amount of space in between the ants. Spooky indeed!
Summary: When two particles or things become entangled, they influence each other – instantly – no matter how far apart they are.
2. Double-slit Experiment
Is light a wave or a particle? Yes… no. Wait, what?
This experiment and it’s weirdness are so difficult to explain that I had a hard time finding a source to quote from. I found this on the Popular Mechanics website though: “Basically, waves that pass through two narrow, parallel slits will form an interference pattern on a screen. This is true for all waves, whether they’re light waves, water waves, or sound waves. But light isn’t just a wave, it’s also a particle called a photon. So what happens if you shoot a single photon at the double slits? Turns out, even though there’s only one photon, it still forms an interference pattern. It’s as if the photon travels through both slits simultaneously.”
Ouch. That makes my brain hurt. But wait, there’s more! Now we also know that “just by observing the double-slit experiment, the behavior of the photons changes.” I’ll let you read the article to find out about the further weirdness of how “observing a photon can change events that have already happened”.
Summary: The basic molecules of things behave in a way we don’t understand, dependent upon whether anyone is watching, and independent of time, apparently.
3. The Global Consciousness Project
Created originally in the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab at Princeton University, The Global Consciousness Project collects data from a global network of physical random number generators located in up to 70 host sites around the world at any given time. According to their website: “Random number generators (RNGs) based on quantum tunneling produce completely unpredictable sequences of zeroes and ones. But when a great event synchronizes the feelings of millions of people, our network of RNGs becomes subtly structured. We calculate one in a trillion odds that the effect is due to chance. The evidence suggests an emerging noosphere or the unifying field of consciousness described by sages in all cultures.”
What’s fascinating to me is that our global consciousness seems to react before a major event – as in the 9/11 attacks. “The variance measure shows a normal fluctuation around the horizontal line of expectation until about three or four hours before the attack…” You can see the statistical graphs for major world events including 9/11. It’s pretty impressive.
Summary: When a big part of the global population is focusing on one event or thing, it influences random patterns and creates a structure out of them suggesting a link in the consciousness of all people.
4. Programmable DNA
On this webpage, they explain that Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Peter Gariaev and his colleagues “explored the vibrational behavior of the DNA. They stated: ‘Living chromosomes function just like solitonic-holographic computers using the endogenous DNA laser radiation.’ This means that they managed, for example, to modulate certain frequency patterns onto a laser ray and with it influenced the DNA frequency and thus the genetic information itself”.
“Gariaev´s research group succeeded in proving that with this method, chromosomes damaged by x-rays, for example, can be repaired. They even captured information patterns of a particular DNA and transmitted it onto another, thus reprogramming cells to another genome. So they successfully transformed, for example, frog embryos to salamander embryos simply by transmitting the DNA information patterns! This way the entire information was transmitted without any of the side effects or disharmonies encountered when cutting out and re-introducing single genes from the DNA”.
All of these translations and big sciency words are kind of tricky to navigate. However, it seems to me as if they are using a device with holographic, acoustic and electromagnetic functionality to impose frequencies and/or patterns onto damaged tissue and finding that the tissue regenerates itself. In fact, Gariaev’s website gives an example of an experiment where they brought dying mice back to health with this system when the mice should have died from a lethal dose of poison within a few days.
For more information on Gariaev and his research, visit his website: eng.wavegenetic.ru. He also has a facebook page for his “wavegenetic” device. The articles on the facebook page are all in Russian, but you can probably click through and use Google to help you translate.
Summary: A device exists that can cause organs to heal themselves at the DNA level without surgery – seemingly only using frequency, sound, and light.
So, there you have it. Four freaky things you probably never even heard of that actually exist! The basic molecules that make up everything in our world are more complicated and unpredictable than we know – and apparently not dependent on space or time. We all seem to be connected, and there exists a way to regenerate ourselves to youth and health. As weird as all of this sounds, I’d totally be down with regenerating a malfunctioning body part to good-as-new without having to cut anything up (or cut anything out). How about you?
