What Is Lucid Dreaming & Why You Should Do ItWhat Is Lucid Dreaming & Why You Should Do It

What is Lucid DreamingLucid dreams are a unique state when the brain shows unusual characteristics. Today, there is no doubt left: lucid dreaming is not a mere esoteric phenomenon, it is a scientifically proven, documented and incredibly important notion. On average, a person spends around 6 years of their life dreaming, or in the stage, Rapid Eye Movement (REM). This means we spend approximately 2,190 days or 52,560 hours watching or living dreams.

  • Reflections On Voodoo Neuroscience

    Seven years ago, neuroscientists Ed Vul and colleagues made waves with their paper on ‘voodoo correlations’ in social neuroscience. Now, in a new paper, historian of medicine Cornelius Borck looks back on the voodoo correlations debate and asks whether neuroscience might be likened to voodoo in another sense.Borck argues that neuroscience has something in common with animism, the religious belief that spirits inhabit various objects. In particular, he says, fMRI studies can be likened to the

  • Audio Visual Entrainment Device: Benefits of regulating and balancing your brain waves

    “Hemispheric Synchronization, a potential and generally desired result of brainwave entrainment, refers to a state when the brainwave pattern of the right and left hemispheres become alike. A person with similar activity in both hemispheres is alleged to be happier, more optimistic, more emotionally stable and less prone to mental illness. Increased levels of synchronization are found naturally in people who meditate regularly and people who are very content with their lives in general.”

  • The Real Applications of AI at NASA

    When it comes to artificial intelligence, NASA and other space agencies are nowhere near building a"Terminator" in space. Thus, you can rest easy -- Arnold Schwarzenegger is not going to hunt you down because you are leading a rebellion against the machines. Artificial intelligence is at its infancy, but scientists have used it to discover alien planets, classify galaxies and make spacecraft capable of dodging debris. However, some critics, such as SpaceX founder Elon Musk and the renowned

  • A "Black Widow" 6500 light-years from Earth

    A team of astronomers has performed one of the highest resolution observations in history by detecting two intense regions of radiation, 20 kilometres apart, around a star 6500 light-years away. The observation is equal to having a telescope on Earth to observe a flea on the surface of Pluto. The outstanding observation was made possible by the rare geometry and characteristics of a pair of stars orbiting each other. One is a cool, lightweight star known as a brown dwarf, which features

  • 3 Hacks to Have Lucid Dreams

    In the 2010 movie "Inception," Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) explains his spouse Mal's trick for differentiating reality in the fantastic dreamscape where the majority of the film takes place: He uses what he calls a totem, a spinning top which won't ever fall over while he is dreaming. But a totem, known to psychologists who examine lucid dreams is of ways to tell if you are asleep, a new study from Australia finds. If you have ever understood you're dreaming while you're asleep, you have had what

    This year's International Film Festival Rotterdam had a rich selection of filmic fare, as world famous directors like Guillermo del Toro appeared alongside lesser-known filmmakers. However, the most fascinating aspect of the festival was not actually a movie. During the first week of the festival, the Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, opened a hotel, Sleepcinemahotel. This one-off project proved to be a fully functioning hotel, having an open-space dormitory that had beds, showers and
