The fountain of youth could be in each of us

Throughout history explorers, adventurers, kings and queens alike have all been tempted by the journey to find the elixir of life immortal, the fountain of youth. In the last few centuries we have as a society completely written off the thought of living forever and become content with adding a few more years or maybe a decade or two of life and calling it good. Well it looks like the hunt for the fountain of youth may becoming full circle and into the lime light once again. Several news agencies have done stories on a little girl in Maryland who seems to be doing the impossible... not aging!

Brooke Greenberg is a 16 year old girl who looks, functions and exists to us as an infant however, scientist and doctors have been able to find no explination as to why. They have looked at her gene's, her chromozones and medical tests and they are all left scratching their heads as to why and how Brooke's body is not aging. I should offer a little more explination here on exactly what Brooke's body is doing. While physically she looks as though she is just over a year old there are certain parts of her body that appear to have aged independantly of the rest. Her teeth for example, while still being baby teeth, are approximately 8 years old and her bones appear to be around the 10 year mark. The interesting points in this story don't stop there though, they get much wierder...


Psycho-Cybernetics Review

The New Psycho-Cybernetics

With all the hype stirred up by "The Secret" a whole new generation of meta-physicists and spiritual explorers was born (or in some cases revitalized). And with science and religion's historically giant chasm of separation turning more and more into a traversable small canyon every day there couldn't be a better time to be among their numbers.

Now, for the population of nay-sayers out there, the people who think positive thought and attraction are just new-age mumbo-jumbo I have a book suggetion. The New Psycho-Cybernetics, written by Maxwell Maltz M.D., is a book that fills in the gaps left by The Secret, giving you real scientific evidence and a well thought through outlook on the why and how of this phenomena. For those of you out there who scoff at the idea of wasting your time reading a book you already know you disagree with I would ask you what you have to loose? What is it possibly going to hurt in your life if you read through this book?


The Talent Code Review

The Talent CodeI don't know about you but for me learning new tasks, jobs and hobbies can be a daunting challenge sometimes. For instance, I've been wanting to learn how to play the drums but in looking at my life I wonder "When will I have the time to practice to get to be as good as I would like to be?" Have you ever found yourself asking the same question? Enter The Talent Code. This book is like the idiots guide to neuroplasticy or a skill growing 101 at your local college. It takes the stand point that skills (or talents) are not something that is just given to us but something each and everyone of us can earn!

While this book does use some science and medical terminology it does so in a way that any new comer to the fields would be able to pick it up and feel comfortable with the content. The author does an excellent job of explaining how your brain forms skills and how it improves upon them through the learning process. It then takes you through the various ways to manipulate this process to make your brain work on your talents and skills for you instead of having to work on them yourselves. It's an easy and quick read that will leave you feeling like you can take on the world and change your life!

The Weekend of Braden

Gregg BradenI had a friend tell me about a book I needed to read on Friday called “The Isaiah Effect” by Gregg Braden. Well being the devoted bookworm I’ve become over the last year I started in on it that night. The book was facinating. Gregg does an excelent job of merging science and the fringe field of mental power. He explains concepts in a very easy to understand and easy to follow way which made the book a fast and fun read.

I finished that book late Saturday and found that it had left me with a longing for more Braden! I did some research and decided to start with one of his first books “The Lost Mode of Prayer“. This book was equally laced in crack and I couldn’t put it down. I think the points, situations and lessons that he brings up in both books are extremely interesting and backed by a decent amount of science and proof. I would highly recommend these books to anyone who is interested in the unknown of our true human potential or the potential of all living things really.

I’m just starting in on a third book of his called “Fractal Time” and so far it is shaping up to be just as good as the previous two.
