Have you read the novel Flatland? If you haven’t, maybe you should, since this book sets out the idea of the multidimensionality of the space and presents it in an unusual way.
More particularly, the protagonist of the book called “A Square” is a creature from a two-dimensional world, where everything is a plane, just like a sheet of paper. One day he is visited by another character, “A Sphere”, from a three-dimensional world (just like our own). A Square can’t imagine what the 3-D world looks like until A Sphere takes him from Flatland to Spaceland. From there A Square can see his world and family just like we see cartoons on the TV. The only problem is that two-dimensional creatures look disgusting because from Spaceland you can see their insides, since their skin has the shape of a square and does not cover their sides.
Then A Square wonders if a four-dimensional world is possible and what it would look like. In theory, it is, because there is no reason that could deny the possibility of the existence of space with as many dimensions as you can imagine. But no one can (more…)
It consists of 360 pages and describes a fantasy world with highly abstract and surreal illustrations. For example, you can find the depiction of a couple of lovers turning into an alligator or a ripe fruit dripping blood…
The book is called Codex Seraphinianus, and this is an illustrated encyclopedia of a secret and unexplored world.
Even today the book is an enigma for linguists, who cannot figure out the way to decipher the alphabet used for this spooky tale. (more…)
Cell biologist Dr. Bruce H. Lipton (formerly professor of medical courses in high school and now scientific researcher) was one of the first scientists who detected this effect. Having performed a series of experiments, he revealed that the cell membrane is an organic analogue of a computer chip.
Although these views conflict with the scientific doctrine, which states that genes are those that control behavior, similar publications of other researchers have strengthen this view.
Quantum physics of cell biology
Dr. Lipton is also one of the first researchers who (more…)
American researchers at Rice University and the University of North Texas found that the height of the partner is more important for women than for men. To find this out, a survey with the participation of 455 men and 470 women was conducted.
It turned out that since time immemorial nothing has changed: many women still dream about a partner who would be taller than their height. Such a wish was expressed almost by the half of the participants.
Why do women want a tall partner? As confirmed by the research, for aesthetics. For example, some women reported that they do not like the “look down into the eyes of a man”, others complained that dating a short man they can’t wear high heels.
In addition it was found out that a tall man is a symbol of protection for a woman and that is why ladies want to have such kind of men near them.
But men, as the survey found, were quite indifferent to the height of their female partner. Only 13.5 % of men wished to see a shorter woman next to them.
And yet, according to the researchers, couples where the man is taller than the woman are characterized by (more…)
Cupid’s arrows are capable to take our breath away, make our hearts break and our minds go mad, support American scientists from the Loyola University.
“When you fall in love, your body releases a cascade of chemical euphoria, which trigger specific reactions,” explains Dr. Patricia Mumby of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience of the University. “This inner erotic ‘elixir’ is responsible for the pinkish color in our cheeks, the sweat on our palms and the beat of our hearts,” adds the expert.
The celebration of love
The levels of chemicals such as dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine are responsible for the strong heartbeat and the sweet anxiety that accompanies the experience of love.
According to the experts, MRIs show that sex ‘lightens’ the pleasure centers of the brain. The same brain regions – in which in the case of love-struck there is an increased blood flow – are associated with obsessive compulsive behaviors. (more…)
