Weekender: Timeline Jumping - A Glimpse Into the Complex World of Selective Existence

It is becoming more and more apparent to mankind that time is not the linear concept that our perceptions would indicate, but instead a vast field that encompasses all possible realities.

Weekender - Time Signature: How Music Plays With Our Perceptions

We all know the feeling of being transported by a lilting melody, or enraptured by a rhapsody that seems to mute our senses to all else but its divine resonance.

Yet we may not realise that music is a powerful medium which can actually affect the way we perceive the world; science has proved that it alters our brain functions and can...

Times When We Function Best

By paying attention to our body clocks, we can figure out what times we function best at certain tasks, and decide whether to put them aside for later--or do them right away. This can range from manual tasks to creative thinking to the best time to take a nap.

Many of us are locked into schedules at home or at work, but when we DO...

Wasting Time--A Good Thing?

"Haste makes waste"--it's an old adage, but it turns out to be true: Our brains make more mistakes when we act too quickly. Because the brain must make snap decisions based on less information than it uses for slower decisions, the likelihood that it will make mistakes...

Changing the Speed of Time

We may not be able to manipulate the speed of light, but by tinkering with the neural connections that indicate its passage in our brains, we may be able to alter the speed of time--or at least with how fast the human brain PERCEIVES it to be. New research suggests timekeeping in the brain is decentralized, with different neural circuits having...

Time Leaps Forward

We all know about leap YEAR, but what about leap second? As 70 UN nations argue over whether to abolish it, there's actually a war going on over time.

Leap year adds a day to February every 4 years,...

Insomnia? Blame it on Our Axis

As strange as that may sound, sleep researchers have discovered that our sleep patterns are related to the way the Earth's axis shifts. As the Earth travels around the sun on its annual course, one hemisphere is tilted toward the sun, getting more than its fair share of light and warmth, while the other is titled away and thus has winter weather....

Another Concept of Reality

We may live in a holographic projection of another, flat version of life, being lived in a two-dimensional surface at the edge of this universe. Seeing our universe as a hologram could solve some of the biggest problems in quantum physics, such as "spooky action at a distance," also known as...

They've Done it AGAIN

When researchers at CERN found neutrinos traveling at a speed faster than light, they were excoriated by the scientific community, so in order to prove their results were real, they done an IMPROVED version of their experiment--and the result is the same. If confirmed by...

Time is NOT Like We Think it Is

One of the main dogmas of physics is that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, but at the CERN collider, some subatomic particles seem to have exceeded this speed, breaking all known laws of physics. Neutrinos sent through the ground from CERN toward a laboratory hundreds of miles away seemed to show up a tiny fraction of a second...

Digital Clocks are Racing Ahead

Mysterious electrical fires and magnetic effects caused so much concern in Sicily in 2004 that the Italian government initiated an investigation which concluded in 2007 that an unknown magnetic effect had caused them. Now, strangeness has returned to Sicily, but this...

When Time Stands Still

We're just starting to understand WHAT black holes are and HOW they are created. Scientists now suspect that at the end of this process of creation, time becomes "bent," meaning it actually STOPS. The future of...

The End of Time

It really could happen - According to a new model of the universe, there is a 50% chance that time will end within the next 3.7 billion years. The universe was created by the Big Bang around 13 billion years ago and has been expanding ever since, a there is evidence that this expansion is accelerating.

Is Time an Illusion?

The slo-mo & wagon wheel illusions - Is time just an illusion? We have more and more evidence that this is the case. In order to understand how our brains work, Subscribers get to listen to the paper that Anne Strieber presented at the conference, which tells you why contactees and abductees are essential for future life...

Time Slips

One of the things that Whitley talks about on this week's Dreamland is how his implant has changed him: he has experienced time slips. This is something that Robert Koontz says would be likely to happen to a person who has been implanted by extraterrestrials, who would be likely to live under different laws of physics, including different time...

What a Difference an Hour Can Make

...as we'll find out what Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday - It may only be a single hour of lost time, but "springing forward" for Daylight Saving Time, as we will do on Sunday, March 8, can pack a punch for some people. Many experience sleepiness, mood changes and sleep disturbances as they attempt to adjust to the time...

Why We're Adding a Leap Second in 2009

?But we don't need to adjust our clocks - The spin of the Earth is slowing down. Not by much; only about 0.002 seconds a day (it varies), relative to our modern definition of the second. The varying rotation of the Earth is due to the cumulative effect of friction from the ocean's tides, the moon?s orbital momentum, snow (and...

Time to Leap Forward

On March 9, we all have to remember to set our clocks AHEAD one hour, but our biological clocks may take longer to adjust. And this year was leap year, with a 29th of February. Why do we need leap year anyway?

How to Survive the Time Change

UPDATE - This coming Sunday morning, a lot of brains will be thrown out of whack, as the clocks shift forward by an hour in the earliest-ever return to Daylight Saving Time (DST). Even though the clock will say 8 a.m., it will feel like 7 a.m. to our brains and bodies?and that will leave many people feeling groggy or "not quite...

Time Travel in Our Future

In our subscriber section, Whitley Strieber has recorded descriptions of experiences that may have involved time travel. Strieber comments that, "The closer we get to the moment a time machine is built, the clearer it will become that it is already interacting with us in our present." Now physicist Ronald Mallett says not only will a time...

Set Your Clocks Ahead

This is the time of year when the people in Greenwhich, England figure out what time it really is and adjust the time by a second or two. A sediment mainly made up of algae, which is affected by light and thus "records" the amount of sunlight, indicates that days are longer than they used to be, meaning the rotation of the Earth is slowing down...

Time Travel May be Real

If we can speed up time, we may be able to travel in time. Now scientists say they're learning how to do it. If you find this confusing, you're not alone: physicist Carlos Dolz says, ''A big problem for science is common sense. It works for most everything in people's lives, but not in physics.''

Time Travel Will be Easy

To travel through time, you can open a wormhole in space-time and step through it. All you need is some "exotic matter," which is repelled, rather than attracted, by gravity. The problem is, no one knows how to make exotic matter. But New Zealand researcher Matt Visser thinks we'll learn how to make it soon?then we'll be ready to travel in time...

Time Can be Changed to Work for You

Von Braschler will be on Dreamland June 1st to tell us how time can be slowed down and even ?frozen? and how athletes, healers and remote viewers have learned how to manipulate time.

According to fundamental laws of physics, time is the 4th dimension. Our minds perceive time as an moving in one direction, from past to future, but this...

Time Travel May Be in Our Future

A remake of the movie ?The Time Machine,? inspired by the H.G. Wells novel, is in the theaters, which makes us wonder, once again, if time travel will ever be possible. This, in turn, brings up the question of whether time can be speeded up or slowed down. It turns out Einstein already predicted this in 1905 in his theory of relativity that...
