So what would be the difference? I don’t understand

‘A Russian entrepreneur who heads a hi-tech research project called ‘Avatar’ has contacted billionaires to offer them immortality. Itskov claims he will personally oversee their immortality process, in exchange for an undisclosed fee.’

Bees Can ‘Turn Back Time,’ Reverse Brain Aging

ScienceDaily (July 3, 2012) — Scientists at Arizona State University have discovered that older honey bees effectively reverse brain aging when they take on nest responsibilities typically handled by much younger bees. While current research on human age-related dementia focuses on potential new drug treatments, researchers say these findings suggest that social interventions may be used to slow or treat age-related dementia.

Old bees collect nectar and pollen. Most bees start doing this job when they are 3-4 weeks old, and after that they age very quickly. Their bodies and wings become worn and they loose the ability to learn new things. Most food collector bees die after about 10 days. (Credit: Christofer Bang)
 

In a study published in the scientific journal Experimental Gerontology, a team of scientists from ASU and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, led by Gro Amdam, an associate professor in ASU’s School of Life Sciences, presented findings that show that tricking older, foraging bees into doing social tasks inside the nest causes changes in the molecular structure of their brains.

“We knew from previous research that when bees stay in the nest and take care of larvae — the bee babies — they remain mentally competent for as long as we observe them,” said Amdam. “However, after a period of nursing, bees fly out gathering food and begin aging very quickly. After just two weeks, foraging bees have worn wings, hairless bodies, and more importantly, lose brain function — basically measured as the ability to learn new things. We wanted to find out if there was plasticity in this aging pattern so we asked the question, ‘What would happen if we asked the foraging bees to take care of larval babies again?”

CT Scan Radiation Triples Brain Tumor Risk in Children


Friday, 08 June 2012 09:19

‘CT scans, routinely performed on children and adults alike at the suggestion of their doctor, may actually triple the risk of developing leukemia or brain tumors in children.

Scientists are now warning over the link between CT scan radiation and elevated brain tumor risk after the information was brought to the surface, thanks to new research stemming from Newcastle University.

Alternative health experts have long warned against the large amount of unnecessary CT scans and other scanning techniques involving radiation.’

The Holographic Universe – Beyond Matter


Tuesday, 29 May 2012

‘The highest thing you can be is unconditional love. This term has been used and misused in so many ways that it has more or less lost its meaning. Of course, it has nothing to do with a man loving a woman or vice versa, although that’s a smaller part of it. Unconditional love is a state of being, i.e. PURE SPIRIT. It’s our natural state. Everything else is illusion or arbitrary.

To even get a glimpse of what unconditional love is one must first abandon ones ego, thinking “it’s all about you”. When you are able to fully understand that we all are a part of ONE, we also know without any doubt that Unconditional Love is our state of being.’
