Parallel Worlds exist and interact with our world, say physicists

Parallel Worlds exist and interact with our world, say physicists | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
New theory explains many of the bizarre observations made in quantum mechanics.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

Fascinating.  I've often thought that some #dreams may represent a parallel world that we visit while sleeping.

The U.S. #Government Has a #Secret System for Stalling #Patents

The U.S. #Government Has a #Secret System for Stalling #Patents | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
Newly released documents reveal that the office, tasked with evaluating and protecting the rights to intellectual property, has a covert system for delaying controversial or inconvenient patents. It’s a system that attorneys say, if abused, could function as a way to limit or stomp out emerging companies.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

Figures.  The more people who know about this, the better chances of changing the system!

Does local honey diminish allergies?

Does local honey diminish allergies? | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
It certainly tastes fabulous, but does local honey have the power to stop itchy eyes and scratchy throats?
Judy Kennedy's insight:

It has for me.  When I first moved to Arizona I suffered from the common allergies in the spring.  Having eaten locally grown honey on a daily basis for nearly three decades now I no longer have those allergies.

Mexican Gray Wolf - YouTube

A  Mexican gray #wolf eating breakfast. This is an endangered subspecies of wolf indigenous to the southwestern United States and Mexico.

Judy Kennedy's insight:

Looks like specieist views against wolves are having a revival of sorts so I thought I'd post an old video (2008) I did on the Mexican Gray Wolf.  While the video is old, the subject matter is not.  Unfortunately, this zoo is probably one of the only places most folks will ever get the chance to see one of these remarkable creatures.  It's going to take a change in heart to undo what we've done.  I believe it's happening -- slowly but surely...

Fig Beetle Blues - YouTube

This gorgeous fig beetle (Cotinus mutabilis) was rescued from flood waters during monsoon season and then safely released on to higher ground.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

A living replica of an ancient #Egyptian #symbol - the #scarab.  The scarab was a popular #fertility charm associated with a solar deity and a moon #goddess.  In any event, these #beetles are beautiful and have an important role in the #ecosystem - as does every living being.  I am reminded of something the famous naturalist John Muir said:  "When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it is hitched to everything in the Universe."  Enjoy the #FigBeetle #blues!

The science of being thankful

The science of being thankful | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
Gratitude can do wonders for the human brain, according to researchers at UC-Berkeley, as long as it doesn't fade away when Thanksgiving ends.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

The gurus, masters, yogis, counselors --etc. are all right.  As a friend of mine puts it, "Your #gratitude determines your altitude."

The recovery of the deciduous forests in the eastern United States after the abandonment of agriculture is a classic example of successful passive restoration.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

Makes perfect sense.  It's true -- the BLM and other land management agencies usually listen to those who scream the loudest, and that might not always be in the best interests of nature.  I know because I live right next to some of that land and have experienced first hand this stuggle. . .

#Music Changes the Way You #Think

#Music Changes the Way You #Think | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
Different music encourages different frames of mind
Judy Kennedy's insight:

This explains why Bartok is bliss to my brain!  Many tritones in there -- particularly the 4th String Concerto. . .  Plus, I've always thought you can learn a lot about a person from perusing their music collections & playlists.  It's like food -- the more diverse the collection, the more variety of music, the healthier and more well-rounded they will be.  Sure we can all have our preferences, but to listen to just one kind of music all the time will make you a one-dimensional, unbalanced, unhealthy individual.  Sample something else -- you might like it!

Easter is a beautiful Christian celebration of resurrection and rebirth but it actually has its roots in older pagan traditions which again, show how important nature is to humanity -- particularly when it comes to honoring its cycles and expressing gratitude for her gifts.  Enjoy!

Why do #cats love #boxes so much? | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
Boxes aren't just fun and games for your kitty. Those 4 cardboard walls offer safety and security — in addition to being a great place to swat at passersby.

One of my favorite subjects!  As a toddler I was mysteriously drawn to boxes too but I'll spare the pics.  Enjoy these!

The Ties That Bind Animals And Humans Alike

The Ties That Bind Animals And Humans Alike | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
It's not just us. Other animals, too, construct close social ties beyond the biological family.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

A duck showing signs of visibly mourning the loss of his non-related buddy and then dying shortly thereafter as described in this article gives me great pause and a realization that these ties are not random or irregular - they are indicative of that unifying force that everything is made of -- Spirit - Love - Awareness -- manifesting in all creatures great and small.  That makes #interspecies relations so fascinating and well worth more study.
