Man’s best friend - I feel your pain

Man’s best friend -  I feel your pain | Healthy Minds | Scoop.it

DOGS quickly become part of the family. Tales abound of dogs celebrating joy in a household or commiserating when tragedy strikes. This may not seem surprising after 15,000 years of co-evolution. But what hard evidence is there of dogs’ empathy with humans? A new experiment suggests that behind all the waggy tails there really is something deeper going on.

 

Past experiments have hinted that animals can feel sympathy. Rats and monkeys had been found to forgo food to avoid delivering electric shocks to relatives.

 

....These discoveries suggest that dogs do have the ability to express empathetic concern.

Scientists Confirm that Plants Talk and Listen To Each Other, Communication Crucial for Survival

Scientists Confirm that Plants Talk and Listen To Each Other, Communication Crucial for Survival | Healthy Minds | Scoop.it

Plants not only respond to sound, but they also communicate to each other by making "clicking" sounds.

They also react to light, and scientists also know that plants use volatile chemicals to communicate with each other. This is something we have discussed at the InnerQuantum community and it is very positive to see an advancement in this area.

Noetic Now Journal | Institute of Noetic Sciences | Healthy Minds | Scoop.it

There are two types of ignorance: the first is lack of knowledge; the second is distorted knowledge. The modern vision of health, a vision that relies on biological function alone, lies in the second category, distorted knowledge. It’s distorted because it is partial, incomplete, and inconsistent with what we observe in many people who have transcended their physical condition to achieve a high level of wellness.

Welcome to the InnerQuantum way of Life

Welcome to the InnerQuantum way of Life | Healthy Minds | Scoop.it

Welcome to my hopefully, thought provoking little corner.

Healthy Minds is where the InnerQuantum way of thinking came to be. It is an Integrative and Holistic way of looking at life.

Here you will find the research, theories, possible answers to, ideas from some of those mind boggling questions I have had for ever which do not have easy answers.

Here you will find an eclectic way of understanding the BIG questions that InnerQuantum has been based on. Some are better researched than others, always keeping an open mind.

My aim is to spark deep thoughts, curiosity, more questions and an open mind to the unchartered 'mysteries' that come with LIFE. Maybe you too might find the excitement that comes with becoming an iQ explorer of the unexplained. I dare you...

From here to eternity and beyond!
