Our bodies are able to predict the future?

November 3, 2012 0:32

The human body knows about the upcoming major event, say scientists from Northwestern University (USA). If this is indeed the case, humanity has yet to make fundamental discoveries in the laws of nature.

According to neuroscientist Julie Mossbridzh, which took part in the study, future events can be predicted without any prompting. While this skill is not clearly expressed, it is real. The question is, how it works.

Previous studies have shown that a number of physical responses, including heart rate, pupil dilation and brain activity, can change for 1-10 seconds before a person sees

How many gold mined by mankind in its history?

November 1, 2012 21:05

A complex and interesting. After studying the location of the ancient gold mines, determining the amount of the remaining gold products, read the written sources, the German scientists Zetber A. (1879), and then Mr. Quiring (in 1948) provide data for the extraction of gold in the history of mankind.

These materials against gold mining in the past considered classical. Because there is simply not possible with higher accuracy than did that scientists determine the gold production, for current statistics (because of great secrecy that has always surrounded the production of gold) was satisfactory about a

Something is hiding behind the sun. Scientific justification

A few days ago Canadian astronomers announced that it opened an unusual object in the vicinity of the Earth. This presumably asteroid class "Trojan" that hangs around our planet at a very strange path presumably the last 10 thousand years.

Its orbit is built in points delicate balance between the gravitational field of the Earth and the Sun. Hitherto it was known that there are asteroids podbnye Neptune, Jupiter and Mars, but here is the Earth has something like that. "The movement of the asteroid can be compared with the dancer, who danced around the

Love at first sight — the memory of the past?

October 29, 2012 0:35

Love — the most mysterious of the feelings of humans. At all times, philosophers, writers, and even the doctors were trying to know its nature. Even more puzzling phenomenon is a love at first sight.

This seems incredible. People see each other for the first time, but they think they know all my life. Just met — and immediately became so family and friends! And no matter what their social status, character, nationality, age may be quite different. No logic and calculation does not apply here.

Everything happens at the level of intuition. Those who

African scientists to explore witches circles

October 26, 2012 17:45

American biologist Walter Tschinkel closer to unraveling the phenomenon of famous African witches' circles that the natives called "Fingerprints of the Gods."

Inside, they have no grass, the strange bald education can reach a diameter of 12 meters. Their causes while science is unclear, but there are different hypotheses, for example, that the circles formed a type of insect. When an American biologist first saw this phenomenon in the reserve in South-East Africa, he decided to blame termites that eat the roots of grass. However, further studies are no traces of termites were found. When

Fish with silvery scales violated the laws of physics

October 26, 2012 18:30

According to a new study conducted by researchers from the University of Bristol, silvery scales of some fish species — in particular, herring, sardines and sprats — arranged in such a way as to reflect the incident light, not polarizing it, depending on the angle of incidence. Fishermen and photographers eliminate this effect by polarizing sunglasses or polarizing filters. Fish cover this feature endowed by nature. It helps them hide from predators, the official portal of the University of Bristol.

Previously it was thought that the fish scales, which contains a "stacked" layers of guanine

Japanese neuroscientists have learned to anticipate the visual content of dreams on the basis of functional imaging. Results of their work, scientists reported on neurobiological conference in New Orleans, its summary results NatureNews.

Experiments were carried out in blocks of three hours for a few weeks. Volunteers were placed in a scanner, where they were to sleep. Once in the brain, the experiment participants are beginning to have characteristic electrical activity of the onset of sleep, they woke and asked about the content of the dream. Within an hour, spends six to seven cycles of sleep
