Master Numbers

admin October 18th, 2007

In the past few days I have begun noticing wish
hours (11:11 12:12 1:11 etc..) and just the other day notcied a foreign
cigareet pack in the ground called “555″. i have just recently gone
through deep personal change, as I felt I hit rock bottom. All of these
’signs” have come around since them. So, I researches these, and came
upon lightworker. I read all the information, and some of it really
stuck with me.
Now I has what my next step could be? In researching more. A group to talk to, a book to read etc etc.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

- Chris

PS;
I tried saying this in the “circles of light” page, but it kept saying
I was typing the security code wrong. SO I thought I’d try ehre.

[FWD: PARALLEL UNIVERSES EXIST - STUDY]

PARALLEL UNIVERSES EXIST - STUDY

show_article=1&cat=0

Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by
Oxford scientists described by one expert as “one of the most important
developments in the history of science”.

The parallel universe theory, first proposed in 1950 by the US physicist
Hugh Everett, helps explain mysteries of quantum mechanics that have baffled
scientists for decades, it is claimed.

In Everett’s “many worlds” universe, every time a new physical possibility
is explored, the universe splits. Given a number of possible alternative
outcomes, each one is played out — in its own universe.

A motorist who has a near miss, for instance, might feel relieved at his
lucky escape. But in a parallel universe, another version of the same driver
will have been killed. Yet another universe will see the motorist recover
after treatment in hospital. The number of alternative scenarios is endless.

It is a bizarre idea which has been dismissed as fanciful by many experts.
But the new research from Oxford shows that it offers a mathematical answer
to quantum conundrums that cannot be dismissed lightly — and suggests that
Dr Everett, who was a Phd student at Princeton University when he came up
with the theory, was on the right track.

Commenting in New Scientist magazine, Dr Andy Albrecht, a physicist at the
University of California at Davis, said: “This work will go down as one of
the most important developments in the history of science.”

According to quantum mechanics, nothing at the subatomic scale can really be
said to exist until it is observed. Until then, particles occupy nebulous
“superposition” states, in which they can have simultaneous “up” and “down”
spins, or appear to be in different places at the same time.

Observation appears to “nail down” a particular state of reality, in the
same way as a spinning coin can only be said to be in a “heads” or “tails”
state once it is caught.

According to quantum mechanics, unobserved particles are described by “wave
functions” representing a set of multiple “probable” states. When an
observer makes a measurement, the particle then settles down into one of
these multiple options.

The Oxford team, led by Dr David Deutsch, showed mathematically that the
bush-like branching structure created by the universe splitting into
parallel versions of itself can explain the probabilistic nature of quantum
outcomes.

Hole In Ozone Layer Shrinks 30 Percent

HOLE IN OZONE LAYER SHRINKS 30 PERCENT

The gaping hole in Earth’s ozone layer has shrunk 30 percent in size
compared to last year, according to new measurements made by the European
Space Agency’s Envisat satellite.

The ozone layer loses about 0.3 percent of its mass annually, yet fluctuates
in its thinness through the year. The region of extremely reduced ozone
above Antarctica, popularly known as a “hole,” generally peaks in size
during September and October but regains its composure by the New Year.

Researchers are not certain if this year’s smaller ozone hole means the
radiation-blocking layer is healing.

“Although the hole is somewhat smaller than usual, we cannot conclude from
this that the ozone layer is recovering already,² said Ronald van der A, a
senior project scientist at the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute in the
Netherlands.

This year, the ozone region over Antarctica dropped 30.5 million tons,
compared to the record-setting 2006 loss of 44.1 million tons. Van der A
said natural variations in temperature and atmospheric changes are
responsible for the decrease in ozone loss, and is not indicative of a
long-term healing.

“This year’s ozone hole was less centered on the South Pole as in other
years, which allowed it to mix with warmer air,” van der A said. Because
ozone depletes at temperatures colder than -108 degrees Fahrenheit (-78
degrees Celsius), the warm air helped protect the thin layer about 16 miles
(25 kilometers) above our heads.

While strides have been made to ban ozone-munching compounds, such as
chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), the ozone layer continues to thin since the
problem was widely recognized in 1985. The layer helps absorb harmful
ultraviolet radiation from the sun, which increases the health risks of skin
cancer and cataracts, as well as poses harm to marine life.

CREATING ARTIFICIAL LIFE

I AM CREATING ARTIFICIAL LIFE, DECLARES US GENE PIONEER
By Ed Pilkington in New York
The Guardian
Saturday, October 6, 2007

http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2007/oct/06/genetics.climatechange

Craig Venter, the controversial DNA researcher involved in the race to
decipher the human genetic code, has built a synthetic chromosome out of
laboratory chemicals and is poised to announce the creation of the first new
artificial life form on Earth.

The announcement, which is expected within weeks and could come as early as
Monday at the annual meeting of his scientific institute in San Diego,
California, will herald a giant leap forward in the development of designer
genomes. It is certain to provoke heated debate about the ethics of creating
new species and could unlock the door to new energy sources and techniques
to combat global warming.

Mr Venter told the Guardian he thought this landmark would be “a very
important philosophical step in the history of our species. We are going
from reading our genetic code to the ability to write it. That gives us the
hypothetical ability to do things never contemplated before”.

The Guardian can reveal that a team of 20 top scientists assembled by Mr
Venter, led by the Nobel laureate Hamilton Smith, has already constructed a
synthetic chromosome, a feat of virtuoso bio-engineering never previously
achieved. Using lab-made chemicals, they have painstakingly stitched
together a chromosome that is 381 genes long and contains 580,000 base pairs
of genetic code.

The DNA sequence is based on the bacterium Mycoplasma genitalium which the
team pared down to the bare essentials needed to support life, removing a
fifth of its genetic make-up. The wholly synthetically reconstructed
chromosome, which the team have christened Mycoplasma laboratorium, has been
watermarked with inks for easy recognition.

It is then transplanted into a living bacterial cell and in the final stage
of the process it is expected to take control of the cell and in effect
become a new life form. The team of scientists has already successfully
transplanted the genome of one type of bacterium into the cell of another,
effectively changing the cell’s species. Mr Venter said he was “100%
confident” the same technique would work for the artificially created
chromosome.

The new life form will depend for its ability to replicate itself and
metabolise on the molecular machinery of the cell into which it has been
injected, and in that sense it will not be a wholly synthetic life form.
However, its DNA will be artificial, and it is the DNA that controls the
cell and is credited with being the building block of life.

Mr Venter said he had carried out an ethical review before completing the
experiment. “We feel that this is good science,” he said. He has further
heightened the controversy surrounding his potential breakthrough by
applying for a patent for the synthetic bacterium.

Pat Mooney, director of a Canadian bioethics organisation, ETC group, said
the move was an enormous challenge to society to debate the risks involved.
“Governments, and society in general, is way behind the ball. This is a
wake-up call — what does it mean to create new life forms in a test-tube?”

He said Mr Venter was creating a “chassis on which you could build almost
anything. It could be a contribution to humanity such as new drugs or a huge
threat to humanity such as bio-weapons”.

Mr Venter believes designer genomes have enormous positive potential if
properly regulated. In the long-term, he hopes they could lead to
alternative energy sources previously unthinkable. Bacteria could be
created, he speculates, that could help mop up excessive carbon dioxide,
thus contributing to the solution to global warming, or produce fuels such
as butane or propane made entirely from sugar.

“We are not afraid to take on things that are important just because they
stimulate thinking,” he said. “We are dealing in big ideas. We are trying to
create a new value system for life. When dealing at this scale, you can’t
expect everybody to be happy.”

TRICKS TO TURN YOUR BRAIN INTO A POWERFUL THINKING MACHINE

These tips are very similar to what the group has identified as ways to help your left and right sides talk to each other more effectively.  Looks like thinking has a lot to do with flexibility and creativity. 
 
10 AMAZINGLY SIMPLE TRICKS TO TURN YOUR BRAIN INTO A POWERFUL THINKING MACHINE
Self Improvement

http://www.isityourneed.com/self-improvement/blog/2/ten-simple-tricks-to-exe
rcise-your-brain/

There are two basic principles to keep your brain healthy and sharp as you
age: variety and curiosity. When anything you do becomes second nature, you
need to make a change. If you can do the crossword puzzle in your sleep,
it¹s time for you to move on to a new challenge in order to get the best
workout for your brain. Curiosity about the world around you, how it works
and how you can understand it will keep your brain working fast and
efficiently. Use the ideas below to help attain your quest for mental
fitness.

1. Read a Book

Pick a book on an entirely new subject. Read a novel set in Egypt. Learn
about economics. There are many excellent popular non-fiction books that do
a great job entertaining you while teaching about a subject. Become an
expert in something new each week. Branch out from familiar reading topics.
If you usually read history books, try a contemporary novel. Read foreign
authors, the classics and random books. Not only will your brain get a
workout by imagining different time periods, cultures and peoples, you will
also have interesting stories to tell about your reading, what it makes you
think of and the connections you draw between modem life and the words.

2. Play Games

Games are a wonderful way to tease and challenge your brain. Suduko,
crosswords and electronic games can all improve your brain¹s speed and
memory. These games rely on logic, word skills, math and more. These games
are also fun. You¹ll get benefit more by doing these games a little bit
every day-spend 15 minutes or so, not hours.

3. Use Your Opposite Hand

Spend the day doing things with your non-dominant hand. If you are
left-handed, open doors with your right hand. If you are right-handed, try
using your keys with your left. This simple task will cause your brain to
lay down some new pathways and rethink daily tasks. Wear your watch on the
opposite hand to remind you to switch.

4. Learn Phone Numbers

Our modem phones remember every number that calls them. No one memorizes
phone numbers anymore, but it is a great memory Skill. Learn a new phone
number everyday.

5. Eat for Your Brain

Your brain needs you to eat healthy fats. Focus on fish oils from wild
salmon, nuts such as walnuts, seeds such as flax seed and olive oil. Eat
more of these foods and less saturated fats. Eliminate transfats completely
from your diet.

6. Break the Routine

We love our routines. We have hobbies and pastimes that we could do for
hours on end. But the more something is second nature, the less our brains
have to work to do it. To really help your brain stay young, challenge it.
Change routes to the grocery store, use your opposite hand to open doors and
eat dessert first. All this will force your brain to wake up from habits and
pay attention again.

7. Go a Different way

Drive or walk a different way to wherever you go. This little change in
routine helps the brain practice special memory and directions. Try
different side streets go through stores in a different order anything to
change your route.

8. Learn a New Skill

Learning a new skill works multiple areas of the brain. Your memory comes
into play, you learn new movements and you associate things differently.
Reading Shakespeare, learning to cook and building an airplane out of tooth
picks all will challenge your brain and give you something to think about.

9. Make Lists

Lists are wonderful. Making lists helps us to associate items with one
another. Make a list of all the places you have traveled. Make a list of the
tastiest foods you have eaten. Make a list of the best presents you have
been given. Make one list every day to jog your memory and make new
connections. But don¹t become too reliant on them. Make your grocery list,
but then try to shop without it. Use the list once you have put every item
you can think of in your cart. Do the same with your ³to do² lists.

10. Choose a new skill

Find something that captivates you that you can do easily in your home and
doesn¹t cost too much. Photography with a digital camera, learning to draw,
learning a musical instrument learning new cooking styles, or writing are
all great choices.
