Harvard Scientists Funded by Bill Gates to Begin Spraying Particles Into the Sky In Experiment to Dim the Sun

Matt Agorist, The Free Thought ProjectWaking Times No, we are not a satire site. We are not a conspiracy theory site. The information you are about to read is factually accurate and 100% real despite the ostensible ‘skeptics’ who claim otherwise. The controversial subject of geoengineering or weather modification – which was popularized, and oversimplified with the term “chemtrails” – is once again stepping from the shadows and into the light of public scrutiny. And it may soon be a reality as Harvard scientists plan first ever experiment to spray…

Leading Yale Professor Pushes Back Against Darwin’s Theory Evolution

Was Darwin wrong? Bring this question up in mainstream academia and you’re likely to be attacked by colleague and media operatives alike, if not run-out of any institution you’re working at. According to some, the ‘glory days’ of science are over. In The End of Science, author John Horgan contends that, “Science will keep extending and tweaking its current paradigms, like evolution by natural selection and the big bang, but there won’t be any more comparably profound ‘revelations or revolutions.’” Others are taking this inquiry a bit further, and actually dismantling…

Trees Communicate With One Another Through The “Underground Web”

John Vibes, Truth TheoryWaking Times For decades, scientists have known that trees communicate with one another through a network of underground fungi, which even allows them to trade nutrients back and forth. This incredible discovery was first made by ecologist Suzanne Simard when she was researching her doctoral thesis over 20 years ago. After her discovery, she was inspired to continue her research in the field and learn more about how trees live and interact. In her research, Simard used radioactive carbon to measure the flow and sharing of nutrients…

In Science We Trust

Charles Eisenstein, GuestWaking Times Except among the religious fringe, science is a primary locus of authority in our society: for at least a century to be “scientific” has been among the highest sources of legitimacy in business, government, medicine, and many other fields. Even those who consciously reject some of science’s teachings aspire to it. As our culture sees science as its foremost means to discover truth, to reject what science says seems the epitome of irrationality, tantamount to a willful denial of truth itself. Science provides our culture’s main…

Scientists Now Believe Quantum Entanglement May Apply to Time Itself

Jake Anderson, The Mind UnleashedWaking Times The discoveries made over the last century by physicists studying quantum mechanics—some of which suggest that reality is only made certain by the presence of a conscious observer—is nothing short of mind-blowing. One particular concept, entanglement, was so out there that Albert Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance” and for many years refused to accept it as true. But now, a new experiment has scientists believing that quantum entanglement doesn’t just apply to spatial gaps, but time itself. Einstein famously battled with…

House Made From 612,000 Recycled Plastic Bottles Is Also Hurricane Proof

John Vibes, Truth TheoryWaking Times A Canadian company called JD Composites has built a home that is resistant to hurricane-strength winds. It is said that the house can withstand winds with gusts of over 300 miles per hour. A working prototype of the building is located near the Meteghan River in Nova Scotia. The house looks surprisingly normal, but its structure is far different than any other building in the neighborhood. Much of the interior of the house is made from lumber and drywall, just like most other houses on…

Why a Walnut Resembles the Brain It Nourishes

Sayer Ji, GreenMedinfoWaking Times Nothing could be more beautiful or poetic than when a healing food actually looks like the organ system it nourishes and heals in the body. While commonly viewed as mere coincidence or an act of extraordinary randomness, it is difficult for me to acknowledge the exquisite design of the walnut, whose eerily skull-like shell encompasses the fatty-acid rich, bihemispheric “brain” of the nut, without opening myself to the possibility that mother nature wove metaphor, meaning, and a high degree of co-evolutionary non-arbitrariness into the natural order…

Study Shows Growing Hemp is a Powerful Tool to Fight Bee Population Decline

Matt Agorist, TFTPWaking Times As the world population of honeybees continues to decline at a dangerous rate, a new study from Colorado State University purports to have found the answer to quell the decline—hemp. The reason hemp is such a boon to the bee population is simple, it is a great source of pollen. Because the hemp plant provides such a massive amount of pollen, it will provide them with the resources they need to sustain and grow their populations. As Forbes points out: According to researchers, most hemp crops flower between July and…

Magic Mushrooms Could Replace Antidepressants Within 5 Years

Mandy Froelich, TMUWaking Times According to researchers from the world’s first psychedelic research center, Centre for Psychedelic Research at London’s Imperial College, psilocybin—or “magic mushrooms”—could replace prescribed antidepressants within five years. The assertion follows similar research from John Hopkins University, which suggests victims of emotional trauma may experience more long-term relief when using natural psilocybin fungi instead of chemical drugs. Dr. Robin Earhart-Harris, head of the research center, is leading one of the first trials to determine how therapy involving the mushrooms—which are currently illegal in the UK—compares to leading…

Harvard Study Shows the Dangers of Early School Enrollment

Kerry McDonald, FEEWaking Times Every parent knows the difference a year makes in the development and maturity of a young child. A one-year-old is barely walking while a two-year-old gleefully sprints away from you. A four-year-old is always moving, always imagining, always asking why, while a five-year-old may start to sit and listen for longer stretches. Growing Expectations vs. Human Behavior Children haven’t changed, but our expectations of their behavior have. In just one generation, children are going to school at younger and younger ages, and are spending more time in school…

Scientists Now Believe the Universe Itself May Be Conscious

Jake Anderson, The Anti MediaWaking Times You don’t have to look far to find outlandish theories on the nature of the cosmos and human consciousness. These days, notions once relegated to science fiction are finding their way into esoteric academic journals, and from there, into mainstream discourse. One example of this is the Simulation Argument, recently championed by Elon Musk; another is ‘time crystals,’ a tantalizing non-linear phase of matter. The newest symphony of mind jazz being broadcast across the Internet posits new ideas about the embattled theory of “panpsychism,” or the…

Why it Feels Like Time is Speeding Up

Melissa Dykes, Truthstream MediaWaking Times Entire generations being born now are raised to be dependent on this technology, programmed by it to flit from one dopamine hit to the next. As far as we know, it’s a first for society to raise entire generations of human beings this way. We actually don’t really know what this will look like decades from now… It seems this feeling began to intensify for many specifically in the last few years. Getting older doesn’t fully account for that, as we’ve all been getting older…

A Scientist’s Spiritual Awakening

Jeff Warren, GuestWaking Times It was 1972 at Penn State University, and Gary Weber, a 29-year old materials science PhD student, had a problem with his brain. It kept generating thoughts! He had a continuous and oppressive stream of neurotic concerns about his life, his studies, and everything else. While most human beings would consider this par for the course; par for the human condition (or ‘cogito ergo sum’, which can be translated as “I think therefore I am”), Weber wouldn’t accept it. He was a scientist, a systematizer, a…
