Earth’s core. Human souls.

A new study could help us understand how our planet was formed. Scientists report that their research shows that Earth’s inner core is solid – a finding made possible by a new method for detecting shear waves, or ‘J waves’ in the inner core. (1)

We believe that pressure creates solids.

That diamonds are the hardest material on Earth.

But the hearts of humans are made out of thin air.

Soft, airy and non-binding. Light and flexible.

Dare not to underestimate them.

Cause it is these humans who are the core of Earth.

Those humans giving diamonds their shinning.

Those humans making the Earth move in the vast space.

This was not always like this.

In the beginning this was a lonely inanimate planet.

Full of diamonds.

Full of growing trees

Full of flying bees.

Until someone discarded than diamond in the dirt…

Until someone saw that tree falling…

Until someone cried for that bee dying…

And the cosmos exploded into thin air…

Love chemistry. Ending love. Killing the heart…

Love and heartache have always been inexorably tied. Recall the paranoid, lust-dizzy characters in A Midsummer Night’s Dream or the tortured, memory-deprived lovers in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Wouldn’t it be nice if a pill could take away the pain of a breakup? Researchers are looking into it.

As unromantic as it sounds, love is essentially a biochemical cocktail, and a poorly understood one at that. Scientists do know that oxytocin—often called the love hormone—plays a powerful role in bonding. In one experiment, Adam Guastella, a clinical psychologist at the University of Sydney in Australia, administered oxytocin to quarreling lovers during couples’ therapy. “It does seem to help people reduce their hostility and increase their willingness to take another’s perspective,” he says. Inhibiting the hormone could have the opposite effect: When Emory University researchers injected drugs into the brains of prairie voles to block oxytocin receptors, the voles lost interest in their long-term mating partners. With the manipulation of oxytocin, a love “off button” seems possible. (1)

We were Gods.
Loving others.
Killing for love.
Getting killed for love.

Now we are educated.
Now we are evolved.
Now we are cowards.
Avoiding love.
With drugs.

Modern civilization.
Look under the surface.
Discover rot.

Tortoises. Heart. Brain.

Tortoises are using their cleverness to do more than just win long distance races against hares–now they’re moving into the field of touchscreen technology.

Researchers from the U.K.’s University of Lincoln have successfully trained four red-footed tortoises (native to Central and South America) to touch different objects on a screen. In a video from the university, one of the test tortoises can be seen using his head to tap either a blue circle or a red triangle as they appear on a monitor. (1)

Tech savvy turtles.
And we believe WE are advanced…

Is there anything that any living beaing with a brain cannot learn?
Does it really matter what can we learn?

Or could it be that more important is what we feel?

Start feeling proud of your heart.
You brain is nothing special.
Ask your nearest tortoise.

Science providing explanations. Heart providing guidance…

The universe shouldn’t exist — at least according to a new theory.

Modeling of conditions soon after the Big Bang suggests the universe should have collapsed just microseconds after its explosive birth, the new study suggests.

“During the early universe, we expected cosmic inflation — this is a rapid expansion of the universe right after the Big Bang,” said study co-author Robert Hogan, a doctoral candidate in physics at King’s College in London. “This expansion causes lots of stuff to shake around, and if we shake it too much, we could go into this new energy space, which could cause the universe to collapse.”

Physicists draw that conclusion from a model that accounts for the properties of the newly discovered Higgs boson particle, which is thought to explain how other particles get their mass; faint traces of gravitational waves formed at the universe’s origin also inform the conclusion.

Of course, there must be something missing from these calculations. (1)

This last phrase is the key phrase of this article.
Why “must”?

We are certain for the way things are.
And we just want ot justify them with theories.
Don’t fool your selves.
Science does not “discover” anything.
It just tries to put logic into what we believe.

The most fundamental things we know, we just… know them.
Deep inside, we just feel the truth.
What the mind seeks, it actually just tries to understand.
Because the heart has already found it…

Saving time, heart attacks, doing nothing…

Switching over to daylight saving time, and losing one hour of sleep, raised the risk of having a heart attack the following Monday by 25 percent, compared to other Mondays during the year, according to a new U.S. study.

By contrast, heart attack risk fell 21 percent later in the year, on the Tuesday after the clock was returned to standard time, and people got an extra hour’s sleep. (1)

A really startling conclusion for our sleepless times. In an era of fast pace, we have no time to just do nothing. To just relax. We always try to do something. We always try to be active. But the only action can stem from within. In the weird stage called the Cosmos, your self is the only actor. Only when we are alone doing nothing, are we really doing something. Only when we are inactive, we (our self) are the most active…
