Some international physicists are convinced, that our spirit has a quantum state and that the dualism between the body and the soul is just as real to as the "wave-particle dualism" of the smallest particles.

Why Does Anything Exist at All and the Problems of Necessity and Probability

Why does anything exist at all? Or to put it another way "Why is there something rather than nothing?" Or to put it another way still "Why this form of existence as opposed to another?" The three different ways of presenting this question demonstrates the complexity regarding the very notion of existence and the philosophical considerations that accompany it...

How to Create Cool Coincidences

The psychoanalyst Carl Jung was the first to talk about synchronicity. He used the term to describe those times when the unlikeliest things happen together. Not just at the same time, but exactly the right time we need them to. And it's no coincidence that Einstein and Jung both believed in synchronicity.

The term teleportation was first coined in 1931 by American writer Charles Fort and, decades later, researchers are really getting the hang of it! Why is this amazing? Because that's one step closer to transporting fully solid matter which could mean that, somewhere down the road, you won't need that bus pass!

Quantum Teleportation - World Records 2012 and Outlook

Henryk Frystacki, Ph.D

Teleportation is generally understood as an immediate transfer of matter from one point in our universe to another. This method to travel through space is a speculative theory, only plausible in case of the existence of natural wormholes, i.e. flaws in the regular weave of space-time, connecting points in space that are remote from each other.

Henryk Frystacki, Ph.D

String physicists assume that energetic pieces of threads are the keys to quantum gravity and to everything else of our perceived reality throughout the universe. The basic elements of this theory are "strings" or membranes, i.e. subatomic one-dimensional energy threads and built areas.

Despite our spiritually-impotent, techno-worshipping race's arrogance that we're the height of all that's ever been, we are not actually the apex of human evolution, as Darwin's linear theory would have us believe.
