Children of older fathers perform less well in a range of cognitive tests during infancy and early childhood, according to a study published this week in the open-access journal PLoS Medicine. In contrast, the study finds that children with older mothers gain higher scores in the same tests – designed to measure the ability to think and reason, including concentration, learning, memory, speaking and reading skills.

The age at which men and women are having children is increasing in the developed world, but whilst the "biological clock" – the effect of increasing maternal age on reduced fertility – is widely-discussed, the consequences of increased paternal age are not as well known. Recent evidence demonstrates a link between older fathers and specific health problems in their children, including birth deformities and cancer, as well as neuropsychiatric conditions such as autism and schizophrenia. This new study by John McGrath, of the Queensland Brain Institute, University of Queensland in Australia, and colleagues, investigates the link between a father's age and their child's general cognitive ability, by reanalyzing an existing dataset of 33,437 children born between 1959 and 1965 in the United States. This data formed part of the US Collaborative Perinatal Project (CPP), which tested each child in the dataset at 8 months, 4 years and 7 years of age with a number of widely-used intelligence scales – including assessments of sensory discrimination and hand-eye coordination, conceptual and physical coordination, and at 7 years reading, spelling and arithmetic ability.

Crucially in their reanalysis of this dataset, McGrath and colleagues adjusted their study to take into account socio-economic factors. They used two models: one that focused on physical factors including the parents' age, and a second that indexed social factors such as maternal and paternal education and family income. They found that the older the father, the more likely the child was to have lower scores on the various tests used by the CPP – with the exception of one measure of physical coordination. The researchers also grouped the children by their mother's age and found that in contrast, the older the mother the higher the scores of the child in the cognitive tests.

Previous researchers have suggested that the children of older mothers may perform better because they experience a more nurturing home environment; if this is the case, this study suggests that children of older fathers do not necessarily experience the same benefit. The researchers advance several hypotheses as possibilities to explain the association between advanced paternal age and children's cognitive ability, including genetic and social arguments. Unlike a woman's eggs – which are formed when she herself is in the womb – a man's sperm accumulates over his lifetime, which previous studies have suggested can mean increased incidence of mutations in the sperm at an older age. However, as emphasized in an expert commentary on the findings by Mary Cannon (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland) – who was uninvolved with the study – genetic and social factors can operate in conjunction. "New explanatory models are needed that can encompass socio-cultural and interpersonal factors as well as biological variables", she argues. Given the trend towards older maternal and paternal ages in the developing world, policy-makers may want to consider promoting an awareness of the risks to children that this study associates with delayed fatherhood.

With hindsight, the causes of the current global financial meltdown seem obvious, even predictable. Now, brain imaging offers one explanation for why so few investors challenged foolhardy fiscal advice.

Our brains raise few objections when presented with seemingly expert guidance, new research suggests.

"Most average people have this tendency to turn off their own capacity for making judgments when an expert comes into the picture," says Gregory Berns, a neuroeconomist at Emory University in Atlanta.

Risk circuits
Berns' team presented 24 young volunteers with a simple choice: accept a sure payment or bet on a riskier, yet higher-paying lottery.

When weighing this decision, volunteers activated brain circuits known to calculate risk and reward. In line with previous research, the team noticed more brain activation in these dopamine-delivering areas when the expected reward was higher.

"When advice is not there, when people are making these judgments on their own, you can make clear correlations with expected value in the lottery and areas associated with the dopamine system," he says.

To see how subjects respond to financial advice, the team told volunteers that Charles Noussair, an economics professor at Emory who advises the US Federal Reserve, would offer his opinion on whether they should accept the easy money or take a chance.

Acting blindly
In reality, a computer program told volunteers to accept the sure thing if it added up to about 20% or more of the lottery sweepstake.

Volunteers usually took this advice blindly, brain scans suggest. Correlations between increased potential reward and brain activity disappeared when volunteers received the advice.

"That suggests that the normal mechanisms people use to evaluate risk and reward are not being used when you have an expert telling you what to do," Berns says.

"I think this explains a lot, if not everything, about the current market situation," he adds, urging people to take expert advice – fiscal, medical or otherwise – more shrewdly. "In my opinion, decision-making shouldn't be handed over to anyone, expert or otherwise."

A distinct pattern of brain waves which occurs just before we make a mistake because of a lack of attention has been discovered by scientists.

The US and Dutch researchers say the discovery could help devise attention-monitoring devices for workers such as air traffic control operators.

It may also help aid new treatments for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The study appears online in the journal Human Brain Mapping.

Say you're sitting in a room and you close your eyes - that causes a huge alpha rhythm to rev up in the back of your head

Dr Ali Mazaheri
University of California, Davis
The researchers, from the University of California, Davis, and the Donders Institute in the Netherlands, recruited 14 students to take part in the study, monitoring their brain activity using a recording technique called magnetoencephalography (MEG).

Each student was asked to take part in monotonous test in which a random number from one to nine flashed on a screen every two seconds, and they were asked to tap a button as soon as any number except five appeared.

The test was so boring that even when a five showed up, the subjects spontaneously hit the button an average of 40% of the time.

The researchers found that about a second before these errors were committed, brain waves in two regions were stronger than when the subjects correctly refrained from hitting the button.

In the back of the head (the occipital region), alpha wave activity was about 25% stronger, and in the middle region, the sensorimotor cortex, there was a corresponding increase in the brain's mu wave activity.

Running on idle

Researcher Dr Ali Mazaheri said: "The alpha and mu rhythms are what happen when the brain runs on idle.

"Say you're sitting in a room and you close your eyes. That causes a huge alpha rhythm to rev up in the back of your head.

"But the second you open your eyes, it drops dramatically, because now you're looking at things and your neurons have visual input to process."

The team also found that errors triggered immediate changes in wave activity in the front region of the brain, which appeared to drive down alpha activity in the rear region.

Dr Mazaheri said: "It looks as if the brain is saying, 'Pay attention!' and then reducing the likelihood of another mistake."

He said it should be possible to develop a wireless monitoring device to read an air traffic controller's brain waves, and trigger an alert when alpha activity begins regularly to exceed a threshold level.

A similar approach could be used to determine waning attention in children with ADHD.

"That can help us design therapies as well as evaluate the efficacy of various treatments, whether it's training or drugs."

Professor Nilli Lavie, of the Institute of Neurology at University College London, said in increase in alpha brain wave activity was often associated with sleepiness.

She said the study was interesting, but finding a practical application could prove difficult.

She said: "The best way to tackle the problem of monotonous tasks is to design the task to make it more visually interesting so it is easier to sustain attention."

Crises eng from illuzia.net on Vimeo.

Herein lies a delicate, intricate, and at the same time, wise and kind thought: Nature’s plan. We need to come to understand this thought and realize where it is leading us, instead of attempting to constantly run away from the suffering. The crisis is a digression from the correct goal of nature, which we in turn experience as correction. However, if we do not view this correction properly, as a correction that is bringing us onto nature’s correct path, and instead we try to steer in a different direction, then the next time, we will trigger an even greater negative reaction, a deeper crisis, and a greater correction onto ourselves.

However, if we begin to correct ourselves even slightly, if we wish to change because we will not be able to survive otherwise, even if we simply desire it in our thoughts, we would reach correction and equivalence with nature. Imagine a young child who didn’t want to do what was right, and then made a decision to do as his parent wished in order to avoid hardships. The moment the child makes this choice, the attitude of the parent towards him changes.

The current blows and the crises that are storming down upon us are of a global nature. They are directing us to a global goal. Humanity has grown to a state where we all have the opportunity to realize this, and as such, we are now able to make the right choice.

The human brain easily absorbs information, stories, names and faces that easily catch its attention. This is why people who watch movies immediately respond to how the story is made or what the story is all about because of the interest and attention the brain is capable of acquiring as the movie runs.

In creating stories out of pictures or images, motion helps a lot in connecting the unrelated objects. Studies show that when there is motion among objects, it makes it a lot easier for the human brain to absorb details from the situation.

Let's see if you can memorize several objects at a time. Let's take shoes, door, cake, fish, mountain and ceiling. The given objects are all completely irrelevant from one another. But by using the snapshot memorization technique, we can create a scenario which makes it easier for us and our brain to absorb the above mentioned.

A pair of shoes woke up one day upon hearing a knock on the door.
To Shoes' surprise, a big cake waits on the front door. Shoes takes the cake in and delighted by the surprise, decides to take a bite when all of a sudden, a humongous fish jumped out of the cake carrying another gift in hand. The fish gave Shoes its gift. The gift is a picture of a mountain Shoes always wanted to climb.
Thrilled, fish and Shoes placed the frame on the ceiling and looked up at it with awe all day.

After reading the paragraph, an immediate recall is possible about what happened to the mentioned objects in the scenario. The reason is, moving objects are far less complicated to imagine and remember. Try making another one and see for yourself how much you can remember.

Your brain, it turns out, is deep-wired for enjoyment of unexpected rewards, finds a new study. Led by neuroscientist Kareem Zaghloul of the University of Pennsylvania, the study suggests that if you want a lesson to stick, an unexpected reward is what the brain is craving.

"The brain's sensitivity to unexpected outcomes plays a fundamental role in an organism's ability to adapt and learn new behaviors," write the study authors in the March 13 Science journal.

Monkey studies suggest these "unexpected outcomes" give a jolt to a particular part of the brain called the substantia nigra, twin darkly-colored bands of tissue that play a role in learning, addiction and voluntary motion. The dark color comes from being packed with "dopaminergic" brain cells, or neurons, sensitive to the brain chemical dopamine.

"The response of these neurons to rewards has not been directly measured in humans," write the study authors, doubtless due the difficulty in convincing volunteers (and hospital review boards) to have their brains wired open for science.

When the movie The Secret came out, it introduced the concept of manifesting to the masses. Suddenly people were walking about thinking, “positive thoughts, positive thoughts!”.
However, The Secret is just the tip of the iceberg.Those who stopped at this level of manifesting never had a chance to discover their true potential in just how they could create their own universe.
In this video, Vishen Lakhiani shares his experiences in discovering the different levels of manifesting that go beyond the Secret and mere “Positive Thinking”
What are the 5 Levels?
Mild Awareness
Specific Intent
Release of Past Programming
State of Allowing
Personal Bubble of Reality
In this video, I’ll explain the 5 levels and how they relate to some of the most popular books and teachers in the mind-power genre.

Meditation alters brain patterns in ways that are likely permanent, scientists have known. But a new study shows key parts of the brain actually get thicker through the practice. Brain imaging of regular working folks who meditate regularly revealed increased thickness in cortical regions related to sensory, auditory and visual perception, as well as internal perception -- the automatic monitoring of heart rate or breathing, for example.

The study also indicates that regular meditation may slow age-related thinning of the frontal cortex.

"What is most fascinating to me is the suggestion that meditation practice can change anyone's gray matter," said study team member Jeremy Gray, an assistant professor of psychology at Yale. "The study participants were people with jobs and families. They just meditated on average 40 minutes each day, you don't have to be a monk."

The research was led by Sara Lazar, assistant in psychology at Massachusetts General Hospital. It is detailed in the November issue of the journal NeuroReport.

The study involved a small number of people, just 20. All had extensive training in Buddhist Insight meditation. But the researchers say the results are significant.

Most of the brain regions identified to be changed through meditation were found in the right hemisphere, which is essential for sustaining attention. And attention is the focus of the meditation.

Other forms of yoga and meditation likely have a similar impact on brain structure, the researchers speculate, but each tradition probably has a slightly different pattern of cortical thickening based on the specific mental exercises involved.

Generations of mothers have been told—and believed—that having a baby means checking their own brains at the delivery room door.

Mommy Brain usually refers to a head full of feeding times, soccer schedules, and nursery rhymes, at the expense of creative or challenging ideas. But recent scientific research paints a dramatically different and far rosier picture.



Filled with lively (and often hilarious) stories of multitasking moms at home and on the job, The Mommy Brain: How Motherhood Makes Us Smarter by journalist Katherine Ellison encourages all of us to cast aside conventional thinking and discover the positive ways in which having children changes mothers’ brains for the better.
Ellison draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to demonstrate that, contrary to long-established wisdom that having children dumbs you down, raising children may make moms smarter. From enhanced senses in pregnancy and early motherhood to the alertness and memory skills necessary to manage like a pro, to a greater aptitude for risk-taking and a talent for empathy and negotiation, these advantages not only help mothers in raising their children, but in their work and social lives as well.

The Mommy Brain details five principle ways in which motherhood can improve women's minds:

Perception: A mother's sensory-rich life with her newborn actually remaps part of her brain—improving her ability to interpret new information.
Efficiency: Pregnancy and early motherhood enrich the brain, improving memory and setting a mother up for a lifetime of multitasking.
Resilience: Oxytocin, a powerful hormone abundant in mothers, so effectively combats stress, clearing the way for improved learning, that scientists are studying its, potential as an anti-depressant and even as a therapy for Alzheimer's.
Motivation: The fierce biological urge to defend their children, bolstered by mind-altering hormones, helps mothers become more creative and competitive.
Emotional Intelligence: Mothers get basic training in this important kind of smarts as they tone their brain's "empathy muscles" by instinctively imitating their babies' facial expressions.
These five chapters make up the core of the book. In addition, Ellison reports on the emerging trend of research into the maternal mind, including MRI studies in labs throughout the world. The last chapters reveal how fathers, adoptive parents and altruists share in many "Mommy Brain" benefits, and shows how motherhood in the 21st century has become a particularly brain-intensive job. Ellison goes on to demonstrate how some of today's brainiest professional managers are recruiting and keeping women employees by providing creative and flexible arrangements that help mothers and fathers excel both at home and on the job.

We need to rise a step higher, and then we will see who controls our lives. If we rise, we will find that we control our lives on a lower level, and then, once we rise to the next level, we will find that we control our lives on an even lower level, and so on. It is we who always govern our lives, but we do so unconsciously, and unfortunately, without realizing it, we cause suffering, pain, uselessness, and emptiness for ourselves.

Therefore, reaching a new level and realizing who controls you, means recognizing your own self on a higher level. This is how a person progresses from one level to another, until s/he reaches the very highest level and connects with the source of Nature. Inevitably, the whole of humanity will need to reach this highest and perfect level.

EMBRYO SD from illuzia.net on Vimeo. About illuzia.net Embryo

Human history can be divided into three major periods in very much the same way that the development of a human embryo consists of three trimesters.

All throughout our past, we’ve been expanding, conquering, building, destroying, restructuring, and rebuilding again as we’ve continued evolving. Humanity continued to spread throughout the world, until finally, we conquered everything. A human fetus reaches this condition in the 38th week of its development.

For a child, the mother’s womb is the most comfortable place to be, and yet, this stage of development is merely an intermediate stage. The goal is to be born, and it is therefore impossible to remain inside of the mother’s womb. During delivery, a mother’s body produces an enormous amount of adrenalin in order to help the child be born, since the process of delivery is quite difficult and painful for the child.

Similarly, we as humankind have reached a peak stage in our development, and we cannot continue existing according to the principles we previously designed. Even though we have no idea what to do next, this doesn’t mean that there is no general plan for our development. Nature operates its own program that impacts us, forcing us to be born through crises, disasters, epidemics, and wars. After this birth, the child continues to develop, attaining a totally different world outside of the womb.

We too need to finally attain the goal of our creation. How do we do this? Please view the other pages of this site, or take a course from the source where this information extends.

1. Keep a dream journal - One of the key elements of lucid dreaming is to achieve dream recall. Normally, we wake up with a vague memory of some of our dreams that very quickly dissapear. We need to train ourselves to control our drreams if we are to control them.
Thats why you have a dream journal. You need to keep the journal by your bed and use it as soon as you wake up, Eventually your brain will develop the habit of remembering your dream long enough to record it.
2. Ask Youself Periodically during the day: Am I dreaming? I once even had a lucid dreaming CD that repeated those words while i slept. It worked.Ask yourself am I dreaming even in sleep, soon you will find yourself analysing the content of your dream as it happens.




3. Sleep in 90 minutes increments - not everuone suggests this. howvever, our sleep cycle is 90 minutes in length. In order to have a refreshing night’s sleep and to have the full extent of dreaming possible, we need to make sure we complete as many cycles as we can and not wake up in the middle of a cycle. This also helps dream recall.


4. Start dream checkingAs you draw closer to being able to have lucid dreams, your dreams will become more and more vivid and real like. There will be times when you will not know whether you’re dreaming or awake. You’ll need to work out a routine to help you realize when you’re dreaming and when you’re not. A good trick is to look at your watch every half hour. In dreams, the hands of a watch don’t move as they do in real life. Don’t ask me why, they just do. Being able to know when you’re dreaming and when you’re not is a vital step on the road to enjoying lucid dreaming on a regular basis. Follow these 3 steps and lucid dreaming will be just around the corner for you.

How does your brain work? How does learning change the brain? What about memory? How can you enhance your memory or improve your thinking, learning, and creativity? Explore this section to find the answer to these and other questions.

Your brain is made up of hundreds of billions of cells. You might think of each of these cells as a musician in an orchestra. Each person in the orchestra plays notes that—in harmony with all of the sections in the orchestra—results in elaborate music.

The complex concerto that the orchestra's musicians play is—in this case—your own behavior patterns.

Your thoughts, actions, and senses (sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing) affect distinct sets of nerve cells and brain chemicals.

How It Works
Patterns of chemical and electrical signals travel between the nerve cells in your brain.

Nerve cells (neurons) are the workhorses of the brain. Their fibers (axons and dendrites) form connections (synapses) with other nerve cells.

When a nerve cell is activated, it sends a low-level electrical current down its axon. This releases brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that reach across the gaps between nerve cells and latch onto receptors.

Nerve cells that receive neurotransmitters then pass the signal along, like runners in a relay race. When we repeat experiences (for example, practicing a musical score), we reactivate the same nerve cell connections (synapses) over and over again.

After many repetitions, the synapse changes physically, making the connections more efficient and storing the experience or behavior in our long-term memory. Scientists believe that your long-term memories are actually stored—or "encoded"—in specific synapse patterns in your brain's folds and ridges.

How Parts of Our Brains Relate to Function
The part of our brains called the "frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex"—especially the so-called "prefrontal cortex"—is where important functions like reasoning and planning take place.

Other areas of our brains (the hippocampus, the amygdala, and neighboring structures in the temporal lobe) are connected to the cortex by complex nerve cell connections, which form the core of your brain's memory-processing system.

Life is full of rituals. We create them constantly, although we often like to rename them routines. True some routines are nothing but habits. Nothing other than conditioned responses developed over time. Other associate ritual to religion and minimize them as if they are meaningless. Certainly, having been raised in what many would call a form of Protestantism, I dismissed religious ritual until I realized that in my upbringing there were also traditions and routines that had taken on their own life.
It was then that I realized that rituals can be empowering. If they empower will of course depend on whether we consciously chose rituals that serve us. There are of course many cultural rituals that we inherit however I suggest that these too can empower us. Perhaps it depends on whether we reach a point in life where we examine the purpose of the ritual itself.
If I substitute ritual for the word routine, then I can see that routines can help in time management. Do I switch on the coffee machine, quickly check my email or polish my shoes. The actions in themselves can become automatic.
Yet what about rituals that empower. What of bringing a spiritual dimension to the day? A Muslim, considers salat, or ritual prayer as the second pillar of Islam binding him to the Islamic community. A practicing Jew, commences his day with the Modeh Ani, his first words in gratitude, while still in bed, for the return of his soul in the morning.
In a western, materialistic society, these attitudes are often dismissed as archaic. I would have to admit, that previously, I saw them in a negative light. However, a positive and grateful spirit benefits not only ourselves physiologically and psychologically; it can also benefit those around us.
Now I understand that for the Jew, for example, every prayer, uttered when washing the hands, blessing a food, or praising the Divine, is full of a symbolism that transcends habit but is imbued with meaning.
It is the understanding of the meaning that when repeated throughout life becomes part of the psyche. The question is whether our use of ritual; builds up or negates our life.
Business trainer Brian Tracy, explained that ever action, or failure to act, adds or negates our success. It is the constant daily routines that empower or dis-empower us. Do we habitually act, or habitually, procrastinate? Do we take a few seconds to smile at our kids, or do we tell them we will speak to them when we are not busy.
A ritual of prayer, meditation, or yoga, can help train the mind, a ritual of a few minutes exercise can add strength and endurance to our body. Perhaps th ritual of listening to upbuilding music at the commencement of our day will motivate us. Or do we just hope that the radio has a few good tunes as we allow other to impose their mood on our day?
Perhaps chanting, or repeating affirmations or intentions may help. I already mentioned prayer which can help us look beyond ourselves and direct our introductory thoughts toward serving a purpose beyond ourselves. Perhaps that sounds a little too ‘out there’ for you. In life we are measured often by what we do, not airy fairy nice intentions. As the Chassidic writers said:“Our potential is measured not by good intentions, but by what our feet and hands do.”
However, in all our conscious actions, thoughts no matter how brief preceded them. Therefore, there is merit in developing the habit of developing thought processes that motivate us to act positively. One could do so meditatively, reducing distractions within our thoughts so that we can slip the positively framed affirmations into our lives, or enhance the affirmations emotionally, stirring up our physiology and anchoring our desires to a repeatable action. Personally, I believe both tools should be used. The ritual begins to draw upon the energy and inspiration within us, be it our collective community identity, a collective consciousness, or the enthusiasm within our soul.
Rituals can also help release negative patterns. A useful ritual is to write or verbalise the negative pattern and then symbolically destroy it. This ritual often involves writing or verbally addressing what it is you need to get rid of in your life, A useful ritual is to write, with all the negative emotion, the issue you want resolved and then to burn the paper it is written on. Sometimes motivation specialists will use board breaking or fear conquering activities as a means to overcome a negative belief. For example, a person who breaks aboard may have written on it a belief that they wish to destroy thus symbolically linking their emotion to the successful victory over the board. In both examples, the action links a negative belief to an object that is overcome.
Of course, many negative responses are so conditioned within us that our responses are automatic. Actions and responses that are, triggered by reflex are a little harder to deal with, often because they are not fully understood., however meditators have shown that increases meditative awareness can aid in gaining greater understanding and control of our impulses. Also, breaking wood is not something you can readily do daily, or when a negative thought enters your mind, but simple anchors can be quickly rand discretely repeated as the need arises. It is the neurological linking of a conquest over a negative belief gives us a device to trigger success again and again.
One last point – and yes I know I am repeating this. Find a reason for gratitude. There has been a lot written about gratitude since the release of the movie The Secret Its nothing new of course. Anthony Robbins has been speaking of the attitude of Gratitude for 20 years and it can be traced back centuries. However, many find the repetition of reasons for gratitude soulless. Of course, if emotively psyching yourself up with joyful thoughts works for you go for it! Yet many of us don’t jump out of our skin with over the top exuberance. Perhaps you’re the quiet sensitive type. This is where reflective rituals are magnificent. Earlier I spoke of the culture of prayer in Islamic and Judaic culture. Of course, there are so many other wonderful examples. Prayer has the power to bring forth our emotional being. It can also have a negative effect if not used well. How is that? How can reaching out to the divine be negative? Reaching our inner divinity is in no way harmful. However, repeated emotional states, when repeated in the same way, become anchored physiologically. So? You already said that Brian. Consider if every time you pray all you do is pour out your woes. ‘”I don’t have enough money …. Aunt Mary picks on me … I am so unworthy a sinner …” Now all these topics are important facets of prayer. However, ask yourself, ig the only time you spoke to a friend was when you winged or complained do you think they will want you around after a while? If you only speak to the kids when you discipline them then chances are they will stop listening/ Well, if your prays are interpreted bu your body as another time for stress, drama and anxiety perhaps your inner voice may start to shut off and not hea r the positive parts of your prayer.
So spend time praying in gratitude. Give thanks. Praise God, for all the altruism received from the divine grace.
I’m not religious? Meditation as a means to still the mind works just as well. I am not here promoting religion per se, rather the deep emotional experience that religion can offer. There are many other ways to touch the inner voice within. Perhaps set up a peaceful corner in the home, be it a place of solitude, or if you are inclined a sacred corner. Walk amongst nature daily. If you live near a beach, as I do, then spend the evening dangling your toes in the water edge.
So, I encourage you to find your ritual. Develop patterns that reinforce your life, enhance your view of the world and expand your spiritual awareness.

Some claim you can imparrt intention into things. You probably heard of Dr Emoto's research that concluded that water meditated over, or with emotional words affixed to a label resulted in different shaped crystals. But chocolate? Certainly many cultures encourage gratitude for food. Perhaps we express it by beginning our meal by saying grace. Others may endeavour to make eating a relaxed, spiriual and froendly occassion. Others spend a few moments add add a spiritual energy to the food, or say a blessing over the food soon to enter our bodies.
Now researchers at Princeton and the Max Plank institute are
There are scientific groups in academic institutions like Princeton, Harvard, and Max Plank Institute who are currently studying the power of intention. Involved are Medical researcher, Lynne McTaggart, author of The field, and Radin of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
Along comes Jim Walsh touting Intentional Chocolate, a food to nourish both body and spirit.
The real thing, or a con that’s grabbing hold of a gullible market?
During its preparation, Intentional chocolate has been infused with conscious intention and love, for vigor and well-being by experienced meditators, some of whom have studied with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The claim?
“Whoever consumes this chocolate will manifest optimal health and functioning at physical, emotional and mental levels, and, in particular, will enjoy an increased sense of energy, vigor and well-being for the benefit of all beings.”
Dean Radin, senior scientist from the Institute of Noetic Science conducted research with Intentional Chocolate and found them to increase vigor, energy and mood by more than 67% when one ounce of Intentional Chocolate was consumed per day for three days. The findings were published in a scientific peer-reviewed journal, “Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing” (October 2007).
It is claimed the trials measured decreased stress, increased energy, less fatigue, greater calmness, enhanced focus and improved general well-being.
Whatever you think of the idea, and I for one think that our intebntions can influence our outer environment, I will praise the company for one thing
Intentional Chocolate give 50% of net profits back to the community for projects that will benefit humanity as well as for on-going research into the power of intention.

Well, I’ interested.
Do you know of any products that support consciousness/intention research or support good causes. I want to support and promote good causes.

We are constantly bombarded by facts. This new truth and then another. Their truths seem undeniable. Then we, or perhaps some expert working, we hope, in our behalf, extrapolates this information into our lives. It seems that for every step we take forward there is also unintended backward steps. We think we have the answers and yet for every positive thought we ...

Consider this example reported in the New York Times of February 17, 2009 (cliclk the link if you want to read the whole interestuing article).

"The Unintended Consequences of Changing Nature’s Balance” In 1985, Australian scientists kicked off an ambitious plan: to kill off non-native cats that had been prowling the island’s slopes since the early 19th century. The program began out of apparent necessity — the cats were preying on native burrowing birds. Twenty-four years later, a team of scientists from the Australian Antarctic Division and the University of Tasmania reports that the cat removal unexpectedly wreaked havoc on the island ecosystem.

With the cats gone, the island’s rabbits (also non-native) began to breed out of control, ravaging native plants and sending ripple effects throughout the ecosystem. “Our findings show that it’s important for scientists to study the whole ecosystem before doing eradication programs,” said Arko Lucieer, a University of Tasmania remote-sensing expert and a co-author of the paper."

Now let it be known that I love and respect science. The scientific method has done much great service to mankind. Let it be known I also recognise that humans seem to not ne very good at holistically predicting the outcome of their choices. Science must be restrictive for something to be testable. People and nature are not so desirous of being easily catalogued. For every form of progress, with experts telling us their will be l;ittle impact, their is a compounding intereaction of little changes that collectively snowball upon us.
We, need to learn all about the system in which we exist - the forces influencing us as well as the forces through which we affect everything - before trying to change anything in the system. Because the system is integral, we now have a domino effect on the global scale, where any small, particular error causes a systemic, global collapse.
The problem is that human psychology is also part of the system that controls us and for all its progress we know still so little of our minds.
