As climate change accelerates, a handful of scientists are eager to move ahead with experiments testing ways to counteract warming artificially. Their reasoning: we just might get desperate enough to use this technology one day.

Brain scans highlight a hidden, "higher" state of consciousness

Brain scans highlight a hidden, "higher" state of consciousness | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Reaching a higher state of consciousness is a concept you're more likely to hear a spiritualist spout than a scientist, but now neuroscientists at the University of Sussex claim to have found the first evidence of just such a state. From wakefulness down to a deep coma, consciousness is on a sliding scale measured by the diversity of brain signals, and the researchers found that when under the influence of psychedelic drugs, that diversity jumps to new heights above the everyday baseline.

The research builds on data gathered about a year ago by a team at Imperial College London, which dosed up volunteers with psychedelics, including LSD, psilocybin and ketamine, then scanned their brains with magnetoencephalographic (MEG) techniques to examine the effects. This new study set out to determine how a psychedelic state would compare to other levels of wakefulness and unconsciousness, according to a scale of brain signal diversity measured by monitoring the magnetic fields produced by the brain.

When a person is asleep, their brain signals are far less diverse than when they're awake and aware, and past research has noted that it varies by what stage of the sleep cycle they're in. Being put under different types of anaesthesia induce even lower scores, and it bottoms out for those in a vegetative state. But this is the first time signal diversity has been seen to be higher than the normal readings of an alert, conscious mind.
"This finding shows that the brain-on-psychedelics behaves very differently from normal," says Anil Seth, corresponding author of the study. "During the psychedelic state, the electrical activity of the brain is less predictable and less 'integrated' than during normal conscious wakefulness – as measured by 'global signal diversity.' Since this measure has already shown its value as a measure of 'conscious level', we can say that the psychedelic state appears as a higher 'level' of consciousness than normal – but only with respect to this specific mathematical measure."

Perhaps gurus and ancient mystics knew something about the mind that we did not. New research shows we have hidden states of consciousness that were unknown before brain scans.

5 Creative Exercises from the Surrealists

5 Creative Exercises from the Surrealists | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

There is more to surrealism than Salvador Dali's mustache or people wearing lobsters on their heads. The movement, started one hundred years ago, was founded on the idea that creativity could be accessed by lessening the controls of the conscious brain, and giving free rein to the unconscious. Today's neuroscience supports their thinking: There is evidence that imagination and day-dreaming takes place when we are not focusing our conscious attention.

Making the case that educators should cultivate their cognitive science literacy.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
nukem777's insight:

More broadly, if educators understand some of the basics of the science that you hopefully understand now, they might ask questions like the following:

  • Is this adaptive learning product a cognitive tutor based on the ACT-R model? (Try that one on your textbook sales rep. I dare you.)
  • Can you give me some examples of the kinds of learning stumbling blocks that this product helps students with in my teaching domain?
  • What is your research basis for knowing that the stumbling blocks you think you’ve identified are, in fact, problems?
  • Can you explain to me in plain English the kinds of factors that this “machine learning” you keep talking about takes into account and roughly how the program uses new data from the students to adjust over time?
  • When you talk about “brain science,” can you explain to me what that really means? What do you think you know about the brain, how do you know it, and how does that knowledge apply to the way that the product works?

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 18, 7:10 PM
Mindfulness is understood to be fully awake to the world. I used hermeneutic phenomenology as my research methodology in my dissertation. Broadly, phenomenology is a wakefulness to the world and hermeneutics is interpreting what we become aware of and is often taken-for-granted (van Manen, 1990 and 2014). Whatever we want to call the pedagogy, mindful and wakefulness work in how we interact with our students.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it shows you great tools to help improve your blog, Instagram strategy, and business sales.

 

Reach more customers and readers online with these great resources for business.

 

12 Marketing, Blog, and Business Tools for More Sales

 

With the right tools you can help your bottom line and reach grow. I agree that in order to build a business online it's important to take advantage of what's available.

 

Gilbert provides the best tools to help make your brand stand out on Instagram and your blog.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Pinterest is one of the best social networks to attract buyers and website subscribers. The jQuery Pin It Button highlights your blog images for easy pinning.

 

  • You no longer have to just use a mobile device to manage your Instagram account(s). Grum helps you to schedule your images and posts ahead of time with related hashtags and emojis.

 

  • There are a lot of CRM products out there -- one of the best to check out is from Hubspot. Their free tool helps you to gain valuable insights on your leads and monitor your community.
