    The Parallel Universe Theory

    The Parallel Universe Theory

    Around 13.8 billion years ago, our Universe began with a Big Bang. The convergence and eventual collision of matter and anti-matter created a powerful explosion, known as the Big Bang. Scientists have a theory that for this to happen, there had to be something that brings about the process of inflation. Once inflation begins, not just one explosion, but many explosions will happen, at different places, during different times, for all of eternity. This is what scientists call 'Cosmological Inflation'.

    A Father, A Son, Identity and Back to the Future 3

    Back to the Future 3 places me into an odd mindset 30 years later. In its innate nostalgia for the western, Back to the Future 3 took me to a place of examining the things that my father embraced as a young man, the kinds of things I thought that I had rejected in creating a personality separate from my father. In this review/essay, Back to the Future 3 will be the vehicle with which I will examine maturity, childhood, identity and my relationship with my father, abstractly of course, I would need a therapist to tackle the subject directly.

    The Spiders from Mars or How I'm Spending Time After Quarantine

    When Governor Murphy gives the okay, I’m out of here. Straight down the turnpike and  straight towards the sky to fly off in a thirty foot rocket full of cheese wiz and French Champlain. Ritz crackers lull me to sleep as I ascend & drift off through our compromised atmosphere. I float weightless around my new home as I journey on past the Moon past Venus to our first destination Mercury.

    Top 5 Moments from Star Wars

    Top 5 Moments from Star Wars

    When we think of movie franchises, it is hard to ignore Star Wars. From the time the first film graced our screens in 1977, the space opera saga has grown into the second highest grossing franchise of all time, beating out the likes of Harry Potter and James Bond, which house some of the most iconic films the world of cinema has seen in recent years. This alone should speak volumes of how successful this franchise has grown - and now, even after 9 full feature films, 2 anthology films, eight animated TV series', and a brand new live action series, it doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Admittedly, Star Wars has had its fair share of problems in the recent past and while the future looks rather uncertain for how it will be proceeding, nobody can deny its rightful place as one of the most influential film franchises to ever exist.

    Social Distancing According to Your Zodiac Sign

    Social Distancing According to Your Zodiac Sign

    Considering the unexpected nature of the beginning of 2020, there is a lot that we must become accustomed to. Currently, (April, 2020) we are going through this global pandemic that is confining the majority of us to our own homes. Practicing social distancing and quarantining to keep others safe is extremely important, I want to make that clear.

    Muse stood outside Hell. Clouded eyes stared up at the rotten bricks, barely held together by eroded cement, infested by ugly black insects that ate away at expanding mould. It had changed over the years, for the worse; it now loomed over the street, casting a heinous shadow over the innocent buildings that surrounded it.

    Life on other worlds

    Life on other worlds

    There are many who believe that they are not alone in the universe. There have been multiple shows that show the existence of life on other planets. Some of these shows are animated and people only view them as shows. I have actually dug into more about the alien life. People have heard of the Voynich Manuscript which was long thought to contain evidence that there is no other life outside of planet earth. I can confirm that the scientists who had released this information are completely wrong about their assumption. In fact the animated show dragon ball is actually a confirmation on the fact of alien life. I know you might be thinking that the show is stupid or not real but I can assure you that it is real. I know this because I have been at the center of the whole ordeal. I know this is probably crazy to most of the people. The show dragon ball follows a Saiyan named Goku throughout his childhood. Now as people view the show they are thinking more about it. This all leads to one thing, that thing is that my life is what they are focusing on. The only difference is that I have never gone by the name Goku. The name I have been known as is Devon which is the name given to me due to a switch that happened at a hospital. My actual name is Kakarot. The Japanese use my name as the word for carrot but they do not realize that they got the name from undisclosed documents from the USA government pulling information off from my space pod. The only reason I have not come forward before now is because I have been terrified to release this information for the simple fact that i could be taken away from my life here on this planet. Also too i have been hiding because my brother is literally on this planet trying to find me. He has only one goal and that is to make me return to the ranks of the evil emperor or to kill me. My father does not like the factor that my brother is serving the evil emperor. My father is the only reason i am trying to get enough strength to talk sense into my brother or kill him. Currently there are several different species of aliens and i will discuss more about each species in my next coming posts to this site. Do not be afraid of things that you do not know and if you wish to talk to me more about this subject you can always email me at [email protected] and i will respond within 24 hours.

In the film, Dr. Greer invites anyone willing, from any of the many walks of life, to experience transcendent states of consciousness in union with intelligent alien lifeforms. The documentary further indicates it is up to individuals to join the great journey our civilization is embarking on to become interstellar.

    CE-5

    I'm a ufologist—I study reports, any kind of footage, physical evidence, and any possible phenomena, like crop circles and abductions, possibly related to unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. Those in academia consider ufology a pseudoscience, even a joke. However, the right discovery by someone like me could one day change all of that. A ufologist could someday solve one or maybe even all the mysteries of the universe. Meanwhile, I can use unconventional methods because science rejects what I do, anyway. In some ways, the rejection frees ufologists to be more open-minded.

    Tawai

    Tawai is a word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe the connection they feel to their forest home. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, Bruce Parry (of the BBC's Tribe, Amazon & Arctic) embarks on an immersive odyssey to explore the different ways that humans relate to nature and how this influences the way we create our societies. From the forests of the Amazon and Borneo to the River Ganges and Isle of Skye, Tawai is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.

    It's the Turn-Around 20's

    I don't know about you but I'm getting that feeling that the attitude of the 90's are creeping back in... at least to the UK. I'm not talking so much about the excessive drug usage or 3-day benders... even though that's gotta take some type of strength that is commendable (perhaps not the type that we're trying to channel nowadays, but it's still something to look at in awe and say 'damn Universe, that's a hella lot of energy'). I'm talking more about the character, the mind-set, the approach to things that the youth of the 90's would have. The general character of the decade was so juicy and big, you feel as if you'd be on a huge sugar high from it that lasts years. Their uniqueness of everyone's personalities really stood out, and that's what I feel is going to come back.

    The Three Haikus of the Magic-Wielding Giant

    The Three Haikus of the Magic-Wielding Giant

    It is springtime. I can see a road ahead of me lined with trees that are blooming with flowers, shining when the sun lightly touches upon them. No one is here, except for me. As I walk further down the road, I see someone walking opposite me. He seems to be wearing a series of ever-changing colors and patterns suit with a bright yellow cravat wrapped tightly around his neck. I am guessing he bought it from one of the stores in Limbo. When you stare at him, which I highly don’t advise anyone to do because it is rude, he reminds me of a kaleidoscope. Taking a glimpse at him, my mind starts to wonder.

    This is how can you be Be Next Einstein : A Practical Guide To Making A Scientific Breakthrough.

    Albert Einstein has been one of the most celebrated scientists of all time. It is funny, that his ideas are also, among the most difficult to understand, and many people do not quite know what he did, and how he did all those things. It is the mystery of not knowing how the mind of a scientist works, that creates an aura of greatness. It takes years of study, everlasting passion and a great deal of luck, to come up with something worth celebrating.

    Terminator 2: An opening sequence of legend

    Looking back at the cinema history, it’s easy to sneer at sequels as just mediocre cash cows to successful films, however, there’s still several sophomore features that manage to equal, or even overshadow their predecessors’ excellence. James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day stands out as a vivid example. It inherits the legacy of the iconic original movie, telling a story of a catastrophic future occupied by androids eradicating the human race, but in a more fascinating and powerful delivery.

    Dateline:2020 - The International Year of Time Travel Science

    Dateline:2020 - The International Year of Time Travel Science

    2020 will be called the International Year of Time Travel Science, because for the first time ever, it is obvious that time travel to the past is going to happen much sooner than anyone predicted. It is only a question of where, when and by who, but on an international level, the activity leading up to that has been well underway, though you wouldn't know it by looking at the news media. Though outlets like ABC, Bloomberg, and Space.com will occasionally cover time travel science stories, but if they do it is always seen as a far off notion or only theoretical and always based on Einstein's theories of Relativity - Einstein, a man who didn't even believe in time travel to the past and as if nothing else has happened over the last 100 years.
