Three-Dimensional Mid-Air Acoustic Manipulation ( Acoustic Levitation )   Yoichi Ochiai / 落合陽一(The University of Tokyo / 東京大学) Takayuki Hoshi / 星貴之(Nagoya Institute of Technology / 名古屋工業大学) Jun Rekimoto / 暦本純一 (The University of Tokyo / Sony CSL) The essence of levitation technology is the countervailing of gravity. It is known that an ultrasound standing wave is capable of suspending small particles at its sound pressure nodes and, so far, this method has been used to levitate lightweight particles, small creatures, and water droplets. The acoustic axis of the ultrasound beam in these previous studies was parallel to the gravitational [More]
CYMATICS: Science Vs. Music by Nigel Stanford   ‘Cymatics’ is the science of visualizing audio frequencies. All of the experiments in this music video are real. The most unusual part of making Cymatics was the fact that the music was written after the video was filmed. http://NigelStanford.com/Solar_Echoes From the album ‘Solar Echoes’. http://NigelStanford.com/Cymatics Download in 4k / HD. All of the science experiments in the video are real. Watch behind the scenes and see how it was made. Directed by http://ShahirDaud.com Cinematographer: Timur Civan http://timurcivan.com
Earth Talk: Science and Spiritual Practices Lecture by Dr Rupert Sheldrake   In this lecture at Schumacher College, Rupert Sheldrake shows how the “scientific worldview” is moribund; the sciences are being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. But science itself is now transcending the materialist philosophy, and pointing toward a new sense of a living world. The cosmos is no longer like a machine running down; it is more like a developing organism with an inherent memory, and so is our planet, Gaia. These new paradigm shifts in the sciences shed a new light on spiritual practices like pilgrimage, [More]

Science and Spirituality Jeff Lieberman at TEDxCambridge   Jeff Lieberman, an MIT-trained artist, scientist and engineer, makes a scientific argument for mystical experience. He asks us to challenge our perception of what we are, our relationship to the universe, and our relationship to one another. Our minds are “thought-generating machines.” What we would happen if we could turn off the machine? If we could transcend our individual experience of the world? This talk was transcribed by Brad Miele. Transcript here: http://bea.st/inevolution/?p=264 Learn more about TEDxCambridge at http://www.tedxcambridge.com.

The Primacy of Consciousness by Peter Russell   Peter Russell proposes that mind is more fundamental than matter. He explores the problems science has explaining consciousness and argues that consciousness is not created by the brain, but is inherent in all beings. A recent talk from SAND conference updates this material and takes it further. http://youtu.be/g04RHQ1ysb4 What does it mean to be conscious? All in the Mind The key to this alternative view is the fact that all our experiences—all our perceptions, sensations, dreams, thoughts and feelings—are forms appearing in consciousness. It doesn’t always seem that way. When I see [More]
Is Consciousness Located In The Brain? Evidence for Reincarnation   Dr. Bruce Greyson reports of cases that suggest that consciousness does not need a physical brain and in fact not even a physical body. Presented at the “Cosmology and Consciousness Conference” hosted by Upper TCV, Dharamsala, in 2011 Is there consciousness in other galaxies? What is the origin of consciousness? What is it like to be a bat, octopus, or a tree? These are all great questions but Dr. Bruce Grayson would like to ask, what it is like to be a human being? Most western psychologists believe that consciousness [More]
