How consciousness can change your life?

Dr. Joe Dispenza (Joe Dispenza) was one of the first who began to explore the influence of consciousness on reality from a scientific point of view. His theory of the relationship between matter and consciousness brought him world fame after the release of the documentary "We Know What the Signal Does".

The key discovery made by Joe Dispenza is that the brain does not distinguish physical experiences from the emotional. Roughly speaking, cells of "gray matter" absolutely do not distinguish real, that is, The material, from the imaginary, i.e. from thoughts!

Few people know that the doctor's research in the field of consciousness and neurophysiology began with a tragic experience. After Joe Dispenza was hit by a car, doctors suggested that he fix the damaged vertebrae with an implant, which could later lead to lifelong pain. Only so, according to doctors, he could walk again.

But Dispenza decided to quit export to traditional medicine and restore his health with the help of thought power. In just 9 months of therapy, Dispenza could walk again. This was the impetus for exploring the possibilities of consciousness.

The first step along this path was communication with people who experienced the experience of "spontaneous remission". It is spontaneous and impossible from the point of view of doctors to heal a person from a serious illness without using traditional treatment. In the course of the survey, Dispenza found out that all people who passed through this experience were convinced that thought is primary in relation to matter and can heal any diseases.

Neural networks

Theory of Dr. Dispenza claims that each time experiencing any experience, we "activate" a huge number of neurons in our brain, which in turn affect our physical condition.

It is the phenomenal force of consciousness, due to its ability to concentrate, that creates the so-called synaptic connections - the connections between neurons. Repeated experiences (situations, thoughts, feelings) create stable neural connections, called neural networks. Each network is, in fact, a certain memory, on the basis of which our body in the future reacts to similar objects and situations.

According to Dispenza, all of our past is "recorded" in neural networks of the brain, which form how we perceive and perceive the world as a whole and its specific objects in particular. Thus, it only seems to us that our reactions are spontaneous. In fact, most of them are programmed with stable neural connections. Each object (stimulus) activates this or that neural network, which in turn causes a set of certain chemical reactions in the body.

These chemical reactions cause us to act or feel in a certain way - to run or to freeze in place, to rejoice or to be upset, to be excited or to fall into apathy, etc. All our emotional reactions are nothing more than the result of chemical processes caused by the existing neural networks, and they are based on past experience. In other words, in 99% of cases we perceive reality is not what it is, but we interpret it on the basis of finished images from the past.

The basic rule of neurophysiology is this: the nerves that are used together are connected. This means that neural networks are formed as a result of the repetition and consolidation of experience. If the experiment is not reproduced for a long time, the neural networks decay. Thus, the habit is formed as a result of regular "pushing" of the button of the same neural network. So automatic reactions and conditioned reflexes are formed - you have not yet had time to think and realize what is happening, and your body already reacts in a certain way.

The power of attention

Just think: our character, our habits, our personality are just a set of stable neural networks that we can at any time weaken or strengthen due to a conscious perception of reality! By concentrating attention consciously and selectively on what we want to achieve, we create new neural networks.

Previously, scientists believed that the brain is static, but the research of neurophysiologists shows that absolutely every slightest experience produces in it thousands and millions of neuronal changes that affect the body as a whole. In his book "The Evolution of Our Brain, the Science of Changing Our Consciousness," Joe Dispenza asks a logical question: if we use our thinking to cause certain negative states in the body, then will this anomalous state eventually become a norm?

Dispenza conducted a special experiment to confirm the possibilities of our consciousness.

People from one group for an hour every day pressed the spring mechanism with one and the same finger. People from the other group had only to imagine what they were pushing. As a result, the fingers of people from the first group grew by 30%, and from the second - by 22%. This influence of purely mental practice on physical parameters is the result of the work of neural networks. So Joe Dispenza proved that for the brain and neurons there is no difference between real and mental experience. So, if we pay attention to negative thoughts, our brain perceives them as reality and causes appropriate changes in the body. For example, illness, fear, depression, a surge of aggression, etc.

Where does the rake come from?

Another conclusion from the research of Dispenza concerns our emotions. Stable neural networks form unconscious patterns of emotional behavior, i.e. propensity to some form of emotional response. In turn, this leads to a recurring experience in life.

We attack the same rake just because we do not understand the reason for their appearance! And the reason is simple - every emotion is "felt" due to the release of a certain set of chemicals into the body, and our body simply becomes in some way "dependent" on these chemical combinations. Having realized this dependence precisely as a physiological dependence on chemicals, we can get rid of it.

Only a conscious approach is needed

Today I saw the lecture of Joe Dispenza, "Break the habit of being yourself" and thought: "Such scientists have to put gold monuments ..." Biochemist, neurophysiologist, neuropsychologist, chiropractor, father of three children (two of whom, on the initiative of the Dispensa, were born underwater, although 23 years ago in USA, this method was considered complete madness) and a very charming person in communication. Lectures reads with such sparkling humor, speaks of neurophysiology in such a simple and understandable language - a real enthusiast from science, educating ordinary people, generously sharing his 20-year scientific experience.

In his explanations, he actively uses the latest achievements of quantum physics and talks about the time that has come, when it is now not enough for people to simply learn about something, but now they are obliged to apply their knowledge in practice:

"Why wait for a special moment or the beginning of a new year in order to begin to radically change their thinking and life for the better? Just start doing it right now: stop showing the often repetitive daily negative moments of behavior that you want to get rid of, for example, say to yourself this morning: "Today I will live a day without condemning anyone" or "Today I will not whine and complain about anything" or "I will not be annoyed today" ....

Try to do something in a different order, for example, if you wash your face first and then brush your teeth, do the opposite. Or take and forgive someone. Just. Break the usual design! And you will feel unusual and very pleasant sensations, you will like it, not to mention those global processes in your body and the consciousness that you launch it! Start to get used to reflect on yourself and talk with yourself, as with a best friend.

Change in thinking leads to profound changes in the physical body. If a person took and thought, looking at himself impartially:

"Who am I?
Why is it bad for me?
Why do I live as I do not want to?
What do I need to change in myself?
What is it that prevents me?
What do I want to get rid of? ", Etc. and felt an acute desire not to react as before, or not to do something as before, which means that he went through the process of "awareness."

This is an inner evolution. At that moment, he made a leap. Accordingly, the personality begins to change, and the new personality needs a new body. 

Thus spontaneous healings occur: with a new consciousness, the illness can no longer remain in the body, because the whole biochemistry of the organism changes (we change our thoughts, and this changes the set of chemical elements involved in the processes, our internal environment becomes toxic to the disease), and the person recovers.

Dependent behavior (ie addiction to anything: from video games to irritability) can be determined very easily: this is something that you find it difficult to stop when you want.

If you can not unlock from your computer and check your page in social networks every 5 minutes, or you understand, for example, that irritability hinders your relationship, but you can not stop irritating - know that you are not only dependent on the mental level, but also on the biochemical (your body requires the injection of hormones responsible for this condition).

It has been scientifically proven that the action of chemical elements lasts from 30 seconds to 2 minutes, and if you continue to experience this or that state longer, know that all the rest of the time you artificially support it in yourself, by thoughts provoking cyclic excitation of the neural network and repeated release of unwanted hormones , causing negative emotions, i.e. you yourself support this state!

By and large, you voluntarily choose your health. The best advice for such situations is to learn to switch your attention to something else: nature, sport, watching a comedy, anything that can distract and switch you. Sharp refocusing of attention will allow to weaken and "extinguish" the action of hormones responding to the negative state. This ability is called neuroplasticity. 

And the better you develop this quality in yourself, the easier it will be for you to control your reactions, which, through the chain, will lead to a huge variety of changes in your perception of the external world and the inner state. This process is called evolution.

Because new thoughts lead to a new choice, a new choice leads to a new behavior, new behavior leads to a new experience, new experiences lead to new emotions that, together with new information from the outside world, begin to change your genes epigenetically (i.e. secondarily). And then these new emotions, in turn, start to evoke new thoughts, and so you develop self-esteem, self-confidence, etc. This is how we can improve ourselves and, accordingly, our lives.

Depression is also a vivid example of dependence. Any state of dependence indicates a biochemical imbalance in the body, as well as an imbalance in the work of the "consciousness-body" connection.

The biggest mistake of people is that they associate their emotions and behavior with their personality: we just say "I'm nervous", "I'm weak-willed", "I'm sick," "I'm unhappy," etc. They believe that the manifestation of certain emotions identifies their personality, therefore they constantly subconsciously seek to repeat the response scheme or condition (for example, physical illness or depression), as if affirming to themselves every time who they are. Even if they themselves are very afflicted with this! A huge error. Any undesirable condition can be removed if desired, and each person's capabilities are limited only by his imagination.

And when you want changes in life, imagine clearly what exactly you want, but do not develop in your mind a "hard plan" of HOW it will happen, for the possibility of "choosing" the best option for you, which may be completely unexpected.

It is enough to relax internally and try to rejoice heartily from what has not happened yet, but it will happen. Do you know why? Because on the quantum level of reality this has already happened, provided that you have clearly presented and rejoiced with all your heart. It is from the quantum level that the beginning of the materialization of events begins. 

So start to act first there. People are accustomed to rejoice only in the fact that "you can touch", which has already been realized. But we are not used to trusting ourselves and our abilities to CO-CREATE reality, although we are doing it every day and, basically, on a negative wave. Suffice it to recall how often our fears are realized, although these events are also formed by us, only without control ... But when you develop the ability to control your thinking and emotions, real miracles will begin. 

Believe me, I can give thousands of wonderful and inspirational examples. You know, when someone smiles and says that something will happen, and they ask him: "How do you know?", And he calmly replies: "I just know ...". This is a vivid example of controlled implementation of events ... I am sure that absolutely everyone has experienced this special condition at least once. "

It's just about the complicated tells Joe Dispenza. Everyone will warmly advise his books as soon as they are translated into Russian and begin to sell in Russia.

"Our habit of being ourselves must become our most important habit."
Joe Dispenza

And yet Dispenza advises: never stop learning. The best information is acquired when a person is surprised. Try to learn something new every day - it develops and trains your brain, creating new neural connections, which in turn will change and develop your ability to conscious thinking that will help you model your own happy and full-fledged reality.

8 things that a man should not save

It is fitting for a man to live modestly, simply and financially. But this, of course, does not mean that you should always buy the cheapest goods and services. Sometimes, on the contrary, it is wiser to spend - in the end it will result in savings and significantly simplify life.
Quality things can significantly improve the standard of living - they make us healthier, more attractive, and also improve our mood and work efficiency. Such purchases are an investment in yourself, which in time will necessarily pay off several times. Here are eight things that you definitely do not need to save.

How you can keep your smartphone secure?

97% of tested apps inappropriately accessed private information

A critical component of your Android smartphone is the permissions system. When you install an app, it notifies you of what it would like to gain access to. You can then install the app, or not. Unfortunately, this system puts a lot of responsibility on the users to know whether these access requests are appropriate.
Free web services companies like Google, Twitter, Facebook and others provide you with a free service.In return for information about you. This information is then used to target ads. Some consider this fair trade but privacy campaigners are becoming increasingly concerned.

1.Prevent apps and services from keeping tabs on you.

Sharing images taken from your smartphone reveal a lot of information about you ...

A prototype of a phone that does not need a battery

Phone which does not need a battery for transmitting messages and calls

 was created by the engineers of the University of Washington in Seattle. The developers have attempted to create such a device before, but faced with insufficient energy from solar panels and other sources. Now they were able to solve the problem. Almost…

The basis of the phone is a microwave cavity that works without batteries and is able to transmit the vibrations created by the human voice to the nearby receiver.

Some components of the cellular, for example, the station responsible for contact with the network, had to be placed next to the phone to save energy. Since the phone receives signals from it, and then converts them into electricity, the station can not yet be removed far. In the future, developers plan to integrate the station into a Wi-Fi router installed on the telephone tower, and increase the distance.

Now the prototype has the usual buttons and a tiny screen - for the sake of saving energy it is necessary to save everything, and the quality of communication leaves much to be desired. In the immediate future, the developers plan to fix the situation, and then equip the handset with an E-ink display, which allows sending full text messages from the phone and monitoring various information. Then, if everything is normal with the power consumption, the phone will be supplied with a camera.

Are people getting smarter with the passage of time?

Observe the behavior of buyers standing in a long queue in the supermarket, or drivers stuck in a traffic jam, and you very quickly become disillusioned with humanity and its collective IQ . Various reality shows and sites like People of Walmart only strengthen this belief. Even in many songs, both popular and experimental, you can hear the phrase "only stupid people multiply / only stupid people become more." Apparently, this can be attributed to many of us.

And yet today we are better at using technology than in the past. Never before have we been so productive, educated and technologically savvy than now. In high school, I had a teacher who told me that at the time when Einstein was working on the theory of relativity, only a few people were clever enough to understand its essence. But only a generation later, each student passed the theory of relativity in high school and understood it well, at least enough to pass the exam.

So, our opinions constantly diverge on the question of whether humanity as a whole is becoming more intelligent over time or not . Of course, solving this problem from the perspective of personal experience alone will be short-sighted and limited. Therefore, we turn to scientific research to understand what is actually happening.

First, the term intellect itself has a debatable character. For example, Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner puts forward the concept of multiple intelligence, which for many years serves as the basis for education.

  • Gardner considers the following types of intelligence:
  • verbal,
  • logic-mathematical,
  • visual-spatial,
  • body-kinetic,
  • musical,
  • interpersonal (understanding and interaction with other people),
  • intrapersonal (understanding of one's own thoughts, feelings, convictions),
  • naturalistic (finding a common language with nature),
  • Existential (understanding of deeper life issues).

For a long time, the vocabulary served as a measure for the intellectual abilities of man. The study showed that it strongly correlates with IQ. In this case, according to the 2006 study, the vocabulary of the average American is rapidly declining since its peak in the 1940s. However, controversies are taking place on this issue, as the results of vocabulary tests differ in different cultures.

If you look at IQ as the most important intellectual criterion, you can see that it grows throughout the world over time. But it still does not say anything.

In fact, there is an interesting trend. IQ rates are increasing in developing countries, while in developed countries, on the contrary, they may fall.

In 2015, during a study at the Royal College of London and published in the journal Intelligence, psychologists sought to find out the state of the world's IQ. They have been working on research for more than six decades. In total they collected IQ-indicators of 200 000 people from 48 different countries. The researchers found that since 1950, the overall IQ rose by 20 points .

In India and China, the greatest growth was observed. And in general, growth was seen in developing countries due to the improvement of the educational system and the health care system. This phenomenon is known as the Flynn effect, in honor of the political scientist James Flynn. In 1982, he predicted that improving living conditions would increase the collective index of human IQ . A number of studies confirm the Flynn effect.

According to a study by the Royal College of London, there is a rapid increase in IQ in developing countries, while in the US and other developed countries, growth rates, on the contrary, are slowing. So one day many developing countries will be able to catch up with developed ones.

In addition, the human brain continues to develop toward more abstract thinking . Flynn refers to a study that is devoted to studying the thinking of Russian peasants. The researchers asked them: "Polar bears live where snow always lies. The territory of the New Earth is always covered with snow. What color are the bears there? "The majority of the villagers answered that since they were never in those regions, they do not know about it, or that they saw only black bears.

Another example. If you asked someone in the XIX century what unites a rabbit and a dog, then they would hardly say about their belonging to a group of mammals or warm-blooded. Instead, they could say: "These animals are both fluffy" or "They are both used by people." In this example, people rely more on their experience in the real world than on abstract, logical or "scientific" reasoning. According to Flynn, this change in our abilities illustrates "nothing more than the liberation of the human mind."

Flynn wrote:

"Scientific worldview, with all its terminology, taxonomy, separation of logic and hypotheses from specific objects, began to penetrate into the minds of people in a postindustrial society. It prepared the ground for mass education at the university level and the emergence of intellectual workers, without which our present civilization would be unthinkable. "

Will we ever achieve a certain maximum in terms of a person's intellectual abilities? Will the changes in the environment affect our brain or mental landscape? And what about the monumental changes that may be caused by the second industrial revolution, approaching the wave of robotics and artificial intelligence? Not yet known.

And finally I want to say about the elderly people who usually complain about the fact that young people lack common sense. When something is given from birth or acquired with the course of life, something else as a result is often lost.

Perhaps, as our thinking becomes more abstract, we tend to lose the practical aspects of our abilities . Despite this, as each new generation becomes more and more unlike the previous one, their improved abilities help them to change the world unimaginably for us, sophisticated and delicious.

Google engaged in thermonuclear fusion

Google Research, in conjunction with the energy company Tri Alpha Energy, has embarked on the development of a new computer algorithm, which should significantly accelerate experiments with plasma.

Tri Alpha Energy, which has received more than $ 500 million in investments from the investment company for the construction of a thermonuclear fusion reactor from Goldman Sachs and co-founder Microsoft Paul Allen, is working on the Optometrist algorithm, which will help specialists find new and better solutions to complex nuclear fusion problems.

The physics of this process is very complex - small changes can have serious consequences. "All this goes beyond our understanding, even with Google's computer capabilities," says Ted Boltz from the Google research division. Therefore, scientists combined the efforts of machine learning with the observations made by man, so that together they could find the right solution.

"We reduced the problem to a simple task: to find plasma states that experts in physics consider interesting, and not to break the machine," Bolz said. "This is a classic example of cooperation between a person and a computer, which can be handled differently than together."

The experiment proved that in this way the computer center of Tri Alpha works much faster, and the calculations that took months are accelerated to several hours. The algorithm discovered unexpected methods of plasma control, which allowed scientists to reduce energy losses by 50% and achieve an increase in the total energy of the plasma, which should reach the critical threshold in order for the synthesis to occur.

"The achievement of such results without the support of advanced computing takes years," says Mihl Binderbauer, president and technical director of Tri Alpha Energy.

Recently, Tri Alpha announced the launch of a new Norman reactor, which is capable of operating at a temperature range of 50 to 70 million degrees Celsius. The amount of plasma that it can hold is 5 times that of the previous reactor.In June, scientists received the first plasma with it.

A device that allows you to use your smartphone in the absence of any communication networks

What if you suddenly needed to make an important call, but the connection on the phone disappeared? In a modern city, this is easily fixable, but what if you are in a remote village? Or in the mountains? Of course, for such cases there are satellite phones, but they are still cumbersome and expensive to use. Fortunately, there is a solution. Not so long ago, Sonnet Labs from Toronto presented a set of devices that make it possible to use the cellular network even if it is not nearby.

The new device is a digital radio station operating in one of the long-range radio communication bands. At the same time, to connect to the radio, the smartphone does not even need Wi-Fi (although this option is provided), it is enough to connect the phone with a cable to the station, and your smartphone will again be able to make calls, as well as send text messages, pictures, videos and even GPS coordinates . At the "other end of the wire" is another mobile phone connected to another radio base station. At the same time, you should not worry about the security of the information - the data is encrypted using the AES algorithm.

The Sonnet system can be turned on automatically if there is no signal from the cellular network. In addition, Sonnet can be used as a backup point in places of natural disasters and other emergencies. The device can work in repeater mode, transferring data along a chain from one base to another until they are received by a phone with access to the network.

The range of one transmitter is approximately 5 kilometers in open terrain, 10 kilometers at elevations and about 2 kilometers in city conditions. The built-in battery lasts for 24 hours of continuous operation of the device.
