Einstein and His Famous Equation
When most people hear the name Einstein, the next thought is usually his famous equation, E=mc2. Believe it or not, Einstein’s Nobel Prize was not awarded for this revolutionary discovery, but for his lesser known paper on the Photo-Electric Effect also published in the same year. A good deal of the confusion about Relativity Theory is that most folks think it is one theory. It is actually three different ideas submitted in three different papers. And then there's that "speed of light squared" thing. What's that?

Quantum - What Does it Mean?
The investigations that led to the development of quantum mechanics began in the mid 1800s. It started as a simple inquiry as to why heated objects glowed in different colors. Today, the word quantum is popularly associated with anything that accesses or pertains to an invisible realm of subatomic particles which acts as a single entity and cooperates with our intentions. Considering the vast difference in the original and popular definitions, it seems that the very word has made a quantum leap in meaning.

Coming to Terms with Light
What is light? Intuitives, philosophers, and scientists have been trying to answer that question since antiquity. Intuitives claim that light penetrates each realm of existence and “All That Is”, is made of light. Quantum physics also suggests that the foundation of every physical thing is based on light. While on the surface it seems that scientists and intuitives are on the same page, are they really talking about the same thing?

Dancing to the Same Score - The Particle/Wave Duality of Light
One of the most famous experiments in physics is a simple yet profound example of the dual nature of light. It is called the “two-slit experiment.” It was first conducted by English polymath, Thomas Yong around 1800 and validated the wave theory of light, overturning Newton’s corpuscular ideas. Neils Bohr used it to develop the Principle of Complementarity showing that light was both a particle and a wave and no description of light was complete without referencing both. It was also at the heart of Einstein’s famous thought experiment called the EPR Paradox, designed to show the incompleteness of quantum theory. One of the most intriguing aspects of the experiment is that you find exactly what you expect to find. It validates light as both a particle and a wave. How can this be? Well, that is the very question physicists have been trying to answer for over 200 years.

Non-locality and Entanglement
Einstein called non-locality “spooky action at a distance”. He was concerned that the early founders of quantum mechanics were attributing the effects we see in the manifested, material world to be initiated by non-local causes, meaning that they were not measurable in the physical realm. Einstein’s entire argument against non-local causes involves a condition known as entanglement.

The Harmonics of Sound
Sound has been a source of divine inspiration since the beginning of time and has been regarded as the very foundation of creation by many traditions. Archeological records indicate that all ancient cultures developed orthodox musical systems based on a pentatonic scale. While there might be a supernatural or metaphysical connection to account for how so many far-flung cultures came to this same conclusion, there is a very simple and down to earth explanation for it as well. The notes were derived from the naturally occurring harmonics inherent to sound itself.

The Mysterious Allure of Fields and Forces
The actions of invisible fields and forces on objects in the material realm have fascinated humans for eons. The idea of a force came into existence long before the idea of a guiding field was recognized. In fact, fields of all sorts are just now coming under the microscope of collaborative scientific and intuitive investigation.

What Are All These Fields?
The Zero Point Field, Morphogenic Fields, quantum fields, Jungian fields of collective consciousness—the list goes on. These are some of the names of fields appearing in many popular books that explore the connections between science and intuitive wisdom. In the very broadest sense, all things are of one source. But, to effectively apply our understandings, it is helpful to differentiate one thing from another. Each of these fields is unique in content and behavior, which will be covered here, but first, we’ll want to explore what constitutes a field.

The Body's Quantum Antenna System
Quantum theories have been applied to every discipline of the physical sciences because they take into consideration one very important aspect of a system, and that is group cooperation. This is especially important to biology because cells and molecules are not isolated from one another in the body. They act and react together in a way that supports the entire system.

Learning To Interact in New Ways
Technology is changing the way we connect and share ideas by giving us unprecedented ease to communicate with others all over the globe. In recent years, emailing has given way to group micro-blogging. Many people now prefer to use their cell phones to text rather than to talk. For good or ill, the preference for virtual communication is changing the skills we use to interface with one another in profound ways.

Thought Forms are Real Things That Affect Us - Part 1
Are thoughts real things and do they affect us? Around the turn of the twentieth century, Annie Besant and Charles W. Leadbeater, both Theosophists and clairvoyants, wrote a small book titled Thought-Forms. In it, they described thought as an “elemental essence." Read more on where this thought-form energy resides and about how it affects us and others.

Thought Forms are Real Things That Affect Us - Part 2
Thought energy not only affects our own well-being, it also radiates from us much like a broadcast antenna and affects those around us. In this article, we focus on how former NASA scientist and Hands of Light author Barbara Brennan describes the behavior of The Human Energy Field. We'll also look at the work of clairvoyant and Theosophist Annie Besant as well as one of Dr. Emoto's lesser known experiments with rice jars.

Is Texting Really an Ancient Art?
Many professional writers and editors lament that the English language is being obliterated by the casual use of more symbolic language on mobile devices and some social media internet sites. They cite two main grievances, which are that casual writing formats are showing up where formal writing styles would be more appropriate and that most people don’t know the difference. Are we witnessing the demise of a modern language or the birth of a new way to communicate that is rooted in ancient traditions?

The Rational and the Intuitive
In our daily lives, each of us incorporates our rational “knowings” and our intuitive “knowings” into a wholistic matrix that helps us make sense of our world. It’s likely that each of us leans a little more toward one way or the other type of knowing depending on personal preference.

Dimensions - A Word of Many Faces
The word “dimension” is used very differently by the rational sciences than by the intuitive arts communities. In its most basic sense, the term “dimension” means “measured out.” It generally refers to the measure of physical space and that is how mathematics and the rational sciences treat it. In the intuitive arts, dimension usually refers to a realm of existence whether or not it occupies physical space. So, the rational sciences community and the intuitive arts community have a bit of an ontological disagreement about this word.

The Power of a Curved Line Known as Gravity
Since ancient times, many people have theorized why things fell toward the Earth. The ancient Greeks, Newton and Einstein have all dramatically expanded our understanding. Even today, it is still a subject of debate as new experiments may shed light on a topic that is as old as the universe itself. Gravity is usually described as an attractive force. But, that force is actually a by-product of the power in a curved line.

New Lightning May Affect Our Psyche
Between the lower boundary of the ionosphere of the sky and the ground plane of the Earth exists a cavity that is continually energized by 40 million lightning strikes a day. This energy makes the cavity resonate and creates an electromagnetic (EM) standing wave that bounces between the sky and Earth. It travels at the speed of light, as do all EM waves, and circumnavigates the entire planet about 7.86 times per second. It is called the Schumann Resonance (SR) and studies show that it likely plays a critical role in psi activity.

The Mythos of the Large Hadron Collider
Billions of years from now, a father and his young daughter may be enjoying the twinkling beauty of a clear summer night when she asks, “Dad, how did all those stars get there?” To which he will reply, “It all started with a big bang.” Today, as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ramps up to speed, speculations abound as to whether science is on the verge of the biggest breakthrough in history or on the event horizon of creating a black hole. Even some physicists are concerned that while we think we are safely recreating only the first instant of the Big Bang, we may actually be hitting the “Reset” button on the entire cycle of creation instead.

How the Shape of Things Affects Us
From the creation of the Platonic solids, which are five unique models that embody the perfect combination of whole shapes, to the beautiful and complex symmetry of a modern fractal pattern, humans have been fascinated with shapes and how they interact to create things. But did you know that researchers in biology and chemistry are now finding that shape has everything to do with the way our cells function and even how we can tell one smell from another?

How the Human Body Antenna Transceives Informed Energies
The physical body is a multi-faceted antenna system. The shapes created from the bones to the cells can radically impact our health and state of well-being. Placing the body in certain ritualistic postures helps us “tune-in” to certain frequencies. Likewise, the conformational shape changes that occur in our cells facilitate the delivery of nutrients and the expulsion of toxins from our system.

Why Do You Dream Flat Tires?
Discover how the misuse of models can limit understanding.

You may recognize the title of this article as a line from a Joni Mitchell song. I found it so poignant that it has stuck with me from the time I first heard it so many years ago. All of recorded history is replete with the evidence of how the human race has dreamed flat tires by creating models of the physical universe that were later found to be in error. One of the most famous was a model of the Earth as the center of the universe. But, there are plenty of examples from modern times of how we still limit ourselves with incorrect models.
