THREADING THE ATOM

“The smaller the thread, the stronger, more powerful the thread. The smaller it gets, the more powerful it gets, that is, smaller than an atom, and then smaller than that, and smaller than that.

There is a point, whereby the size is so small and so powerful that it creates a big bang. You can saw a table in half, a big table, with little consequence.

Split the atom that makes up the table in half and you have a major powerful event. Splitting atoms and smashing protons is not good for the universe.

By splitting them, you’re attempting to destroy the power that holds the universe together. You’re attempting to alter the universe in a fundamental way.

Don’t create a monster that you know nothing about, just because you can. Where is your sense of responsibility?” HWH

Alternative Intelligence

She’s got us over a barrel. Right where she wants us. It’s like pulling hen’s teeth. I just can’t catch a break. If I didn’t have bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck. Katie bar the door. Circle the wagons. Hold on tight, we’re going for a ride. Gloss it over. Firm it up. This baby needs a new pair of shoes. If something can go wrong, it will go wrong. You’ve got a tough row to hoe. What goes around comes around. An eye for an eye turns the other cheek. Knock on wood. Cash on the barrel head.

Scientists Find Evidence That Your Brain Can Sense Earth’s Magnetic Field

Scientists Find Evidence That Your Brain Can Sense Earth’s Magnetic Field

By Yasemin Saplakoglu, Staff Writer | March 18, 2019

A magnetic field surrounds our planet and protects it from solar radiation. Our brains might be able to tune into it.

For some creatures, the magnetic field that hugs our planet serves as a compass for navigation or orientation.

Migratory birds, sea turtles and certain types of bacteria are counted among the species with this built-in navigation system. But what about humans? According to a new study, humans can also sense Earth’s magnetic field.

The new study, published today (March 18) in the journal eNeuro, provides the first direct evidence, from brain scans, that humans can do so, likely through magnetic particles scattered around the brain. The ability to detect the magnetic field, called magnetoreception, was first suggested to exist in humans back in the 1980s. But subsequent studies of the brain, from the 1990s, didn’t find evidence of the ability. But with access to new data analysis techniques, an international group of researchers decided to take another look.

Manipulating the magnetic field…

Cosmic Airburst May Have Wiped Out Part of the Middle East 3,700 Years Ago

Cosmic Airburst May Have Wiped Out Part of the Middle East 3,700 Years Ago

Some 3,700 years ago, a meteor or comet exploded over the Middle East, wiping out human life across a swath of land called Middle Ghor, north of the Dead Sea, say archaeologists who have found evidence of the cosmic airburst.

The airburst “in an instant, devastated approximately 500 km2 [about 200 square miles] immediately north of the Dead Sea, not only wiping out 100 percent of the [cities] and towns, but also stripping agricultural soils from once-fertile fields and covering the eastern Middle Ghor with a super-heated brine of Dead Sea anhydride salts pushed over the landscape by the event’s frontal shock waves,” the researchers wrote in the abstract for a paper that was presented at the American Schools of Oriental Research annual meeting held in Denver Nov. 14 to 17. Anhydride salts are a mix of salt and sulfates.

“Based upon the archaeological evidence, it took at least 600 years to recover sufficiently from the soil destruction and contamination before civilization could again become established in the eastern Middle Ghor,” they wrote. Among the places destroyed was Tall el-Hammam, an ancient city that covered 89 acres (36 hectares) of land. [Wipe Out: History’s Most Mysterious Extinctions]

Among the evidence that the scientists uncovered for the airburst are 3,700-year-old pieces of pottery from Tall el-Hammam that have an unusual appearance. The surface of the pottery had been vitrified (turned to glass). The temperature was also so high that pieces of zircon within the pottery turned into gas — something that requires a temperature of more than 7,230 degrees Fahrenheit (4,000 degrees Celsius), said Phillip Silvia, a field archaeologist and supervisor with the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project. However, the heat, while powerful, did not last long enough to burn through entire pottery pieces, leaving parts of the pottery beneath the surface relatively unscathed…
