Top Alternate Universe Theories
For the longest time, alternate universes were just used as an excuse to have a new character, a weird plot line, or just a cool story in media. If you're like me, you've probably wondered what life would be like in an alternate universe, or if there's an alternate version of you somewhere in a parallel universe.
What is Consciousness?
Perhaps one of the strangest mysteries of the universe is the question of how we became cognizant creatures. Being conscious is one of the bare-bone requirements of being alive, and yet, we still don't understand how it all came to be.
The Mysteries Surrounding Black Holes
Black holes are probably the strangest thing in existence. For many reasons, they don't seem to really make sense at all. Black holes are formed when a star stars, which in their core contains nuclear fusion crushing hydrogen atoms into helium, producing a mighty amount of energy. This energy pushes against gravity, maintaining a delicate balance between gravity and radiation. For stars much larger than our own sun, the heat and pressure at the core allows them to fuse heavier elements until eventually, they reach iron. Iron then builds up at the core until breaking the delicate balance, leading to the core callusing in on itself leading to a supernova explosion - resulting in a neutron star or if the star is gargantuan enough, a black hole.
Cannabis: The Miracle Plant
CBD or Cannabidiol is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp; it's unlike medical marijuana products, which usually have a high concentration of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. Although CBD may not make you "trippy," it's beneficial for the human body in other ways and is drastically more helpful than many of today's harsh, addiction fueling over the counter pills. A huge reason why CBD bonds so well with the body is because our bodies are already equipped with cannabis receptors.
What is Zombie Fungi?
Have you ever had the thought that some humans are nothing more than a puppet on a string? I'm here to validate those thoughts.The cryptococcus fungus species can infect an organism and easily take over its brain and cause it to do things it normally wouldn't - ultimately leading to its demise. The fungus' goal is to grow and spread its spores. And this fungus LOVES your bran sugar, particularly inositol which is found in abundance in the spinal cord as well as the human brain.
Space As You Know It Is A Lie
The Tenth Dimension is based on the idea that countless tiny "Superstrings" are vibrating in a tenth dimension. In order to begin to understand this theory, we have to first comprehensively question our notion of infinity, the plausible and implausible, and consciousness itself.
What is Heterochromia?
Perhaps you've seen someone with different color eyes, or skin with different color pigmentation; this is most likely a condition called Heterochromia. The term derives from the Ancient Greek words "heteros" which translates to different and "chromas" which translates to color. Heterochromia is simply a surplus or lack of melanin in one or more areas of the body. It isn't restricted to simply your eyeballs; it can occur in your hair, skin, nails and even your teeth.
Signals From Aliens?
For years, scientists have studied the possibility of extraterrestrial life with no success, but has proof just fallen into our laps? Newly published research suggests we just may not be alone out here on our little rock. Mysterious phenomena called fast radio bursts could very well be evidence of advanced alien technology. We're talking PLANET- SIZED transmitters powering some sort of interstellar probes in galaxies far, far, away.
