U.S. scientists have discovered a gene which contributes to a higher IQ of a person and can increase it up to six points, according to a new study published in the journal Cell Reports. The gene acts by increasing the effect of the Klotho protein, which is already known to have anti-aging properties. […]

Dr Herbert Benson: Prayer Has a Therapeutic Effect

Dr. Herbert Benson, Professor of Medicine at the Medical School of Harvard University, has devoted the last 35 years of his life to finding scientific evidence to provide an answer to the question “Does the prayer have a therapeutic effect?” The purpose of his work is to provide a “bridge” between Medicine and Religion, which would help find a treatment to many diseases. In an interview to the website pyles.tv the professor speaks of the experiments he has done, the conclusions he has come to and the possibility to use the results of his research in practice. […]

Can the Human Mind Influence the Physical World?

By | May 9th, 2014|Categories: Brain Power, Human Brain, Uncommon Science|Tags: , |

The human mind and energy field have always rumoured to have some form of effect on the surrounding of a human. These rumours have been studied in great detail in the past five decades. There have been a few researchers who have conducted experiments in this field and have drawn conclusive results; all of which indicate that the human brain and energy can influence any human surroundings. One of the pioneers in this field of research is The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory that has been trying to study the exact nature of the effect that the human mind has on the outcome of a random event generator.

Scientists Create an Amazingly Accurate Model of the Evolution of the Universe

By | May 8th, 2014|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , |

For the first time, scientists have simulated the evolution of the universe on a computer and have got such accurate results. The digital universe seems indistinguishable from the real one. The computer model will help test theories about how the universe works and what it consists of. A group of scientists from around the world, led by Mark Vogelsberger of MIT, used a supercomputer to create the most complete visual model of the evolution of the universe, which shows how the first galaxies were formed around the lumps of the mysterious substance – dark matter.

The Psychology of Lying: What Happens When We Lie? [INFOGRAPHIC]

By | May 6th, 2014|Categories: Psychology & Health, Uncommon Science|Tags: |

Whether or not we admit it, lying is – like using the bathroom or having sex – something that all humans do. It is an awkward subject, however, and one that we tend to avoid at all costs. That is because when we are caught lying, the outcome is rarely positive. At best, it is mildly embarrassing. At worst it can lead to outright ruination. For some, lying is second nature and for the more virtuous among us, it is a last resort. Despite the human propensity for lying, few of us know how our brains react when we lie or how often other people lie. For example, why do our eyes move? Why do we breathe faster? And how do compulsive liars manage to hold their stories together? The infographic below explains the scientific processes behind lying and more. It also sheds light on: […]

Many people have a confusion regarding the different varieties of cannabis and thousands of different uses of this plant around the world. The results of ignorance and misinformation lead thousands of people to jail, boost organized crime and deprive the state and citizens of an important source of revenue. Cannabis is a plant which has been cultivated for different uses for 10,000 years and has had a ‘bad reputation’ for the last 50 years. Cannabis is usually classified into three distinct types: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. […]

Ancient Farmers Were Fitter Than Modern Olympic Champions

By | May 3rd, 2014|Categories: Uncommon Science|Tags: , |

“Even the best-trained and honored athletes today could not compete with the ancient people,” says Dr. Colin Shaw of the University of Cambridge. At competitions our ancient ancestors would have easily won today’s world and Olympic champions. The transition from foraging to agriculture thousands of years ago brought the man to what he has now – obesity, osteoporosis and minimal physical activity. According to the description of the research of Dr. Shaw published in Outside Magazine, scientists came to such conclusions after having studied the structure of skeletons of ancient people and have compared them with the bones of our contemporaries. According to Shaw, the state of the bones reflects muscle development and general physical condition of Homo Sapiens, both today and thousands of years ago. […]
