Your brain is amazing. An interesting study shows that our minds can sense future events 2-10 seconds before they take place. This study called “Predictive Physiological Anticipation Preceding Seemingly Unpredictable Stimuli: A Meta-Analysis” shows that your mind actually has an energetic reaction to the future before it happens and before you are even aware of it. “I like to call the phenomenon 'anomalous anticipatory activity,'” she said. “The phenomenon is anomalous, some scientists argue, because we can't explain it using present-day understanding about how biology works; though explanations related to recent quantum biological findings could potentially make sense. It's anticipatory because it seems to predict future physiological changes in response to an important event without any known clues, and it's an activity because it consists of changes in the cardiopulmonary, skin and nervous systems.” They concluded that ” the results of this meta-analysis indicate a clear effect, but we are not at all clear about what explains it”. This is one of many mainstream scientifically stable studies that give credence to pre-sentience the psychic aspects of the mind. The next time you have a thought about something before it actually occurs, that’s because your brain really is picking up on it energetically in a way we can measure. Is time actually non-linear?

A circle of dots, but every dot alone is just moving in a straight line.

this is making me uncomfortable

I get so much pleasure from this.

NASA raised thousands of jellyfish in space. They ended up unfit for life on Earth.  
Since the early 1990s, we humans have been doing something both odd and eminently sensible: We’ve been launching jellyfish into space. And we have been doing so for science. During NASA’s first Spacelab Life Sciences (SLS-1) mission in 1991, NASA began conducting an experiment: “The Effects of Microgravity-Induced Weightlessness on Aurelia Ephyra Differentiation and Statolith Synthesis.” To carry it out, the space shuttle Columbia launched into space a payload of 2,478 jellyfish polyps—creatures contained within flasks and bags that were filled with artificial seawater. Astronauts injected chemicals into those bags that would induce the polyps to swim freely (and, ultimately, reproduce). Over the course of the mission, the creatures proliferated: By mission’s close, there were some 60,000 jellies orbiting Earth. The point of all this, as the experiment’s title (sort of) suggests, was to test microgravity’s effects on jellyfish as they develop from polyp to medusa. And the point of that, in turn, was to test how the jellyfish would respond when they were back on Earth. Jellyfish, foreign to us in so many ways, are like humans in one very particular manner: They orient themselves according to gravity.
