is everything really connected?

We've all glimpsed the elusive mysteries of consciousness - sometimes through premonition, perhaps in a lucid dream, an awakening in meditation or prayer. Scientists have often dismissed these experiences as coincidence, placebo, or even superstition. These phenomena, however are worth exploring as they give an insight into the mind's unexplored potential.

Can we sense what's happening to loved ones thousands of miles away? Why are we sometimes certain of a caller's identity the instant the phone rings? Do intuitive hunches contain information about future events? Is it possible to perceive without the use of the ordinary senses?
Many people believe that such "psychic phenomena" are rare talents or divine gifts. Others don't believe they exist at all. But the latest scientific research shows that these phenomena are both real and widespread, and are an unavoidable consequence of the interconnected, entangled physical reality we live in.

schrödinger's cat-aclysm

by Shunyamurti

Schrödinger's cat has today emerged from its box, and is dead-and-alive and well and smiling uncannily at us, like another cat from Cheshire, from every point of our macro-reality. We are clearly now passing through an extraordinary moment of the revelation of quantum superposition in our phenomenal plane. 
In 1935, the physicist Erwin Schrödinger proposed a thought experiment in which a live cat was placed in a sealed box together with a mechanism that could be triggered by a quantum event - the decay of a subatomic particle that had a certain probability of happening - that would kill the cat when it occurred. According to quantum theory, subatomic particles can be in a condition of superposition - in other words, the particle can be in two states at once, until observed. Thus, the killing mechanism in the box could be both triggered and not triggered. So, Schrödinger wondered: Could the cat be both alive and dead at the same time?
For some thinkers, including …
