Harmonics to heal US military?

BBC News has written 'Ultrasound to treat war wounds' where they talk about how the US military is developing ultrasound waves to heal wounded soldiers in the field:

"The device would first use ultrasound imaging technology, in particular "Doppler ultrasound", to locate internal bleeding. This employs a physical phenomenon known as the Doppler effect to look for a characteristic signature of bleeding vessels.

It would then deliver a focused beam of high-powered ultrasound to those sites in order to cauterise the damaged vessels.

The Deep Bleeder Acoustic Coagulation (DBAC) programme is sponsored by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa)."

Harmonics from the US to heal as well as programme... thats a decent touch...

Other Intelligent Designs

Scientist and science fiction writer David Brin has written a post on 'Intelligent Design Creationism called 'The Other Intelligent Design Theories' that looks at numerous “other alternatives” to Darwinian evolution that creationists don’t want you to know about - such as the designer of the Intelligent Designer, Panspermia, and others. As an example extract:

"Guided Evolution - This is the deist compromise most commonly held by thousands — possibly millions — of working scientists who want to reconcile science and faith. Yes, the Earth is 4.6 billion years old and our earliest ancestors emerged from a stew of amino acids that also led to crabs, monkeys and slime molds who are all distant relatives. Still, a creative force may have been behind the Big Bang, and especially the selection of some finely tuned physical constants, whose narrow balance appears to make the evolution of life possible, maybe even inevitable. Likewise, such a force may have given frequent or occasional nudges of subtle guidance to evolution, all along, as part of a Divine Plan."

What's your take??

Creative minds

According to a recent post in Logic + Emotion a new type of dynamic mindset is emerging:

"Individuals possessing this “New Creative Mindset” blend Analytical, Expressive, Curious and Sensual qualities into their thinking process. The result is a holistic approach to creativity that is effective across multiple touch points and experiences."

The author states that such a mind makes for a more able to create 'customer experiences' in a world where the consumer is increasingly more central. Personally I prefer to stay away from consumerist/capitalist analogies about engaging in a competative marketplace - I would rather say that an 'evolving' creative mindset is more adapted to collaborating towards a global cooperative mindset that is more receptive to fluctations in consciousness and the species information field... but thats just me!

CTP -- The Unified Energy Field?

According to Drazen Premate, President of the CTP Energy Club, and originator of the CTP consciousness hypothesis:

"The World finally has a scientific explanation for various still Unknown Phenomena. Current science cannot explain such because it is missing the component of non-physical Conscious or C-energy that exists behind all of these phenomena such as Gravity, Faster than Speed of Light, Paranormal and others. It is also missing the existence of T-energy that codes C-energy into proper vibrations to become visible in our physical world. CTP Energy Science is the Ultimate Science that can explain all unknown phenomena. Click on the rotating cube side to see the still picture of each topic covered and then click on the corresponding titled link below to have CTP Energy Science brief explanation of the same."

Also, the CTP Energy site states that...

"How do you think every single cell, molecule and billions of other single cell organisms of your physical body know what to do? Do you believe they are getting signals what to do via brain or blood? No they are not. All atoms, molecules and cells in human body know exactly what they are supposed to do thanks to C-energy Units existing behind such. These C-energy Units are also aware of each other and each other’s purpose. It is C-energy and T-energy Units behind the cells of your physical body that create it and keep your body functioning."

Another conscious-field theory fad....? Or something in this? Read for yourself...

Dangers Ahead

Responsible Nanotechnology - from a post on June 12, 2006 - has stated that:

'We're approaching a critical period in the history of humankind. The choices we make -- or don't make -- over the next five to fifteen years could have consequences that will be felt for centuries to come'

Here are some scenarios of potential geopolitical instability:

when weapons of mass destruction will be more varied, more deadly, more available, cheaper to obtain, and easier to hide;

when the strength (and the ambitions) of regional powers will increase rapidly while the stabilizing might of the U.S. could be in decline;

when new technologies such as genetic engineering, robotics, nanotechnology, and possibly artificial intelligence could enable radical shifts in the balance of power;

and when global climatic conditions -- including increased frequency and severity of killer storms, droughts, infrastructure damage, crop failures, and even whole ecosystem collapses -- will contribute to growing tensions.

And these are only some of the more overt ones...

No information is safe

A recent post from NewScientist - Pentagon sets its sights on social networking websites - discusses how surveillance tactics are being used, or going to be employed, on social networking sites:

"New Scientist has discovered that Pentagon's National Security Agency, which specialises in eavesdropping and code-breaking, is funding research into the mass harvesting of the information that people post about themselves on social networks. And it could harness advances in internet technology - specifically the forthcoming "semantic web" championed by the web standards organisation W3C - to combine data from social networking websites with details such as banking, retail and property records, allowing the NSA to build extensive, all-embracing personal profiles of individuals."

Anyone interested in reading up-to-date reports on military analysis of information warfare, electronic warfare, and psychological warfare should check out this largely US-centric site - IWS - Information Warfare Site:

Information Operations Roadmap is an interesting report...

Is It Raining Aliens?

I thought this was interesting, especially for those who never ridiculed the theory of panspermia, or life being seeded on Earth from microbes and bacteria from space. A recent article titled 'Is It Raining Aliens?' notes how:

"In April, Louis, a solid-state physicist at Mahatma Gandhi University, published a paper in the prestigious peer-reviewed journal Astrophysics and Space Science in which he hypothesizes that the samples—water taken from the mysterious blood-colored showers that fell sporadically across Louis’s home state of Kerala in the summer of 2001—contain microbes from outer space.

Specifically, Louis has isolated strange, thick-walled, red-tinted cell-like structures about 10 microns in size. Stranger still, dozens of his experiments suggest that the particles may lack DNA yet still reproduce plentifully, even in water superheated to nearly 600?F. (The known upper limit for life in water is about 250?F.) So how to explain them? Louis speculates that the particles could be extraterrestrial bacteria adapted to the harsh conditions of space and that the microbes hitched a ride on a comet or meteorite that later broke apart in the upper atmosphere and mixed with rain clouds above India. If his theory proves correct, the cells would be the first confirmed evidence of alien life and, as such, could yield tantalizing new clues to the origins of life on Earth."

What is so incredulous about panspermia...?? Interested people should read Francis Crick's seminal work 'Life Itself'

Communication & Reflection

When we communicate and reflect among ourselves as citizens—publicly learning about and affirming our shared sentiments as an extended community—then we “know that we know.” In our dangerous and difficult time of global transition, it is not sufficient for civilizations to be wise; we must become “doubly wise” through social communication that clearly reveals our collective knowing to ourselves. Once there is a capacity for sustained and authentic social reflection, we will then have the means to achieve a shared understanding and a working consensus regarding appropriate actions for a positive future. Actions can then come quickly and voluntarily. We can mobilize ourselves purposefully, and each person can contribute his or her unique talents to building a life-affirming future.
