    10 Predictions from the Year 1900 That Exist Today

    Fortune tellers and telepathy have often been treated with very little regard in our modern day society. To be able to see into the future or to know what will happen in the coming days is almost a novelty to say the least. As much as humans may or may not crave a hint of what is to come, not all of our predictions have failed. Take civil engineer John Elfreth Watkins who, in the year 1900, wrote, researched and predicted 29 changes that humanity would make in the 100 years to come (You can read the entire list

    The Prepper Convert

    Tin hat wearer, conspiracy theorist, nut job—yes, that's just a few of the names you get called when you watch the non-mainstream media, read about bushcraft and prepping. But is it really something that people should think about as part of their daily lives?

    Existence

    Existence

    So let me just question our existence for a minute. I know it's a difficult thing to stomach but is there ever going to be a reason we keep creating generations and generations to keep our family name surviving. Will the universe be better off without us destroying only a minuscule part of it's home. A thread on its curtain if it may. Maybe not I'm guessing. It's hard to understand but this is why people such as myself insist on writing such ideas as this. In our part of the universe we are 7 billion people and counting, not including all the other creature's belonging to Mother Nature, and not a single one of us can give a wholesome answer as to how the hell we as a unity have ended up here on earth. Over the years of us being here we have created roles on creating our communities revolving around our talents and achievements but why? Why did we feel the need to allocate roles in order to keep our world alive? I mean yes we have theories about why we're here but there is no solid evidence. Am I the only one that is massively dazed by this? Why is this not a regular question being solved by the daily? Scientists have managed to to figure out what a massive percentage of living things are made of and what makes them do the things they do to survive but still has not wondered why they are there in the first place. Why have things such as atoms and bacteria formed to create us? Humans. Who says that we are worthy of building our lives and homes and entertainment in the midst of Mother Nature herself. Yes, I know. You're bored of hearing the same old crap revolving around our existence but please just for a moment hear out my mad rant and rack through your brain to try and figure out an answer to my question. Except you can't. I mean, kudos if you can! But I highly doubt it. Only because we can only think of remedies to unknown questions through the knowledge we hold. Scientists and doctors figure out cures for diseases and illnesses through the knowledge of the effects of different antibodies and medicines and what pushing them together can create. Builders can only create and recreate buildings from what they've seen before and what they know of construction. Teachers can only teach the knowledge they have been taught themselves from ages 4+ and every single one of us can preach what has been spoken before. Learning about the entities of our universe is a massive thing and most of us take it for granted. Yet still, as I wrote previously, we still haven't got a well-thought out honest answer for why we, a species of many wonders, are living and dying continuously on a much underrated sphere. I know I haven't explained properly when it comes to my many wonders but I have done this purposefully. This is just to let you know how I feel about not knowing what the hell our existence is for. Yes you could say it's to give this world our own personal take on life but as we create war, not only between ourselves but against the creatures that Mother Nature has bestowed on us, we are no other but merely killing the world with our own cold-blooded hands. So why keep us here after creating a destruction? I have a feeling it's because we have become way too strong to destruct again. Although one day we will be and then at that moment in time we will ask...

    Language of Wonder

    Language of Wonder

    Throughout history the question has arisen many times as to what makes us human. What differentiates us from the common ape? Science has shown we share a majority of our DNA with other wild primates. Regardless, Humans have qualities that make us the superior being, both physically and mentally. As humans we have the ability to question and have a fascination for things that don’t solely contribute to our survival. We retain a passion for things of vanity, and a love for knowledge that comes with a thirst to ask why.

    The Science of Belief

    The Science of Belief

    As a child, I grew up with a very confusing set of morals. On one side was my father, whose family had no belief in God or anything of the sort; on the other hand was my mother's family, who were extremely Christian and often self-loathing. From a very young age, I discovered that I hated church. My brother and I would walk out of the service to stop the bleeding in our ears from hearing some dude who was just as lost and confused as we were, but pretended to know the answers - and that nothing else should ever be questioned.

    Intelligence: Reshaping The Human Brain

    Intelligence: Reshaping The Human Brain

    The brain is the very center of our humanity, personality, and sense of being, yet we know almost nothing about its massive complexity. With the help of advanced technology, scientists have been able to map and analyze the brain down the individual neurons that determine our every thought and function; however, intelligence, with its companions consciousness and memory has remained hidden despite everything.
