I'd promised myself that I'd write more this new year. It's a passion, but I'm not afforded the opportunity as I'd like. I'm busier than ever. That's a good thing. But there are so many more important things I'm finding to do.

My free time is filled with art classes. This is a passion as well. I'm in class 3 nights out of the week, forfeiting the luxury of cooking, reading a good book, watching a good movie, or playing with my imagination on paper. Other days I find myself drawn to interesting conversations with like minded people. Folks have so much more to talk about these days. It seems more of us are waking up, learning, and growing.

I'd like to share some of my new insights drawn from these enlightened folks I've encountered of late. But that will come on another occasion where time is abundant.

Thin Line Between Science and Magic

Rupert Sheldrake, a biochemist, has been performing experiments to debunks the idea of 'magic'. He believes that magic is scientific, that supernatural powers can be explained in some scientific, mathematical fashion. An example of this holds true regarding the advances in technology. Cell phones and televisions, for example, would have been considered magical wonders a hundred years ago. And now we've learned, through quantum physics, that a 5th dimension exists (as well as others)which has a profound affect on our present 3rd dimension. The 5th dimension, as scientifically valid as this present reality that we live in today, is what most of us label paranormal. But we're very close to learning that ghosts and other-worldly things have a scientific basis. I expect that some day soon we'll no longer have fear of the supernatural because it will no longer be an unknown.

Mr. Sheldrake conducts a series of experiments where people can participate online. They are interesting, requiring a partner to assist in most of tests. Here is one called the Online Staring Test. Then click Online Experiments Portal to take more tests.
