Reality is not as obvious and simple as we like to think. Some of the things that we accept as true at face value are notoriously wrong. Scientists and philosophers have made every effort to change our common perceptions of it. The 10 examples below will show you what I mean.
1. Great glaciation.
Great glaciation is the theory of the final state that our universe is heading toward. The universe has a limited supply of energy. According to this theory, when that energy finally runs out, the universe will devolve into a frozen state.

10. THE MACHINIST (2004, staring Christian Bale):
A factory worker cannot sleep anymore. It’s not just an usual insomnia, he haven’t slept for a year. Weird things happen to him, and his coworkers blame him for being insane, but is he or they just want to conspire against him? The lesson we learn from this movie is powerful: Guilt always leads to big psychological issues. And the answer to the question “How do you wake up from a nightmare if you are not asleep?” is there in the movie. (more…)
Many of us are addicted to different things. Our habits include a variety of things and events: from the daily routine habits to our favorite activities and places. We begin to feel uncomfortable when we do not get enough of our familiar things. We get used and feel the need of these things, just like in drug addiction. According to the latest research, an emotional expression like love can be attributed to drugs. (more…)
