Did You Know {195} ~ Neuroscientists Say Love Is As Strong As Illegal Drugs

When you fall in love, the same part of your brain is simulated as when you take mind-altering substances like oxycodone and cocaine. Your serotonin levels increase, raising confidence; your dopamine levels increase, enhancing pleasure; and your norepinephrine levels increase, boosting energy.

But the real change that makes you feel like “love is a drug” happens in the reward circuit: the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex. The reward circuit controls “risk versus reward” behavior. Basically, when you fall in love—or take mind-altering substances—the receptors in the “reward” part of your brain fire on overdrive.

Psychology Phenomena {49} ~ Subject-Expectancy Effect

In scientific research and psychotherapy, the subject-expectancy effect, is a form of reactivity that occurs when a research subject expects a given result and therefore unconsciously affects the outcome, or reports the expected result. Because this effect can significantly bias the results of experiments (especially on human subjects), double-blind methodology is used to eliminate the effect.

Like the observer-expectancy effect, it is often a cause of “odd” results in many experiments. The subject-expectancy effect is most commonly found in medicine, where it can result in the subject experiencing the placebo effect or nocebo effect, depending on how the influence pans out.

Did You Know {183} ~ Oranges Aren’t Naturally Occuring Fruits

Oranges may be an iconic fruit, but they are not a naturally occurring one, as The Telegraph points out. In fact, oranges are a hybrid of tangerines and pomelos, also known as “Chinese grapefruit,” and they were originally green—not, well, orange. Oranges are a subtropical fruit, but now that they exist in more temperate climates, they lose their chlorophyll-induced green and become their more familiar colour when the weather warms up.

Psychology Phenomena {46} ~ Primacy Effect

The primacy effect, in psychology and sociology, is a cognitive bias that results in a subject recalling primary information presented better than information presented later on. For example, a subject who reads a sufficiently long list of words is more likely to remember words toward the beginning than words in the middle.

Did You Know {181} ~ Lobsters Have Clear Blood

Most of us are well aware that lobster shells change color when exposed to heat (like in a pot of boiling water, for example). But the sea creatures’ blood is also intriguing. Lobster blood is initially clear and turns blue when it hits oxygen. The blood of lobsters is clear in colour though it turns blue when exposed to air – this is because their blood uses haemocyanin for its oxygen transport.

Articles {7} ~ How Vedic Philosophy Influenced Nikola Tesla’s Idea Of Free Energy

“And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,” said Larchas, “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Apollonius, “to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other.” ~ The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Philostratus, 220AD

Did You Know {179} ~Einstein’s Brain Was Stolen When He Died

When Nobel Prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein passed away on April 18, 1955, he left behind specific instructions when it came to the disposal of his body, according to one National Geographic investigation. Einstein didn’t want his corpse to be worshiped or his brain to be studied, so he instructed those who were responsible for his remains to “cremate them, and scatter the ashes secretly in order to discourage idolaters.”

However, Thomas Harvey, the pathologist on call when Einstein died at New Jersey’s Princeton Hospital, didn’t quite follow those instructions. Instead, he stole Einstein’s brain. From there, things got even weirder. When Einstein’s family found out, his son apparently didn’t object to the theft and Harvey was able to keep the brain in two jars in his basement before moving it to “a cider box stashed under a beer cooler.”

Spiritual Articles {9} ~ Einstein’s Student Claims Both Were Taken To Examine Roswell Craft & Beings

“Could one of the world’s greatest minds have been invited to examine the alleged UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico? One of his students claims that’s exactly what happened. In fact, his student reveals some very telling details about not only the craft but the alleged alien bodies they saw.

Understandably, you might not think there has ever been crash craft or extraterrestrial bodies examined, but that’s not what many whistleblowers, formed government employees, and long time researchers claim.”
