Millennials matter

Millennials matter | Cultural Trendz | Scoop.it

Ranging in age from 14 to 34, the millennial generation is a study in contrasts. In spite of their technological savvy, liberal politics and college diplomas, the group is often accused of being self-absorbed, easily distracted and even deluded. But the evidence might be premature.

While a rough economy’s to blame for their chronic unemployment, millennials are “making their mark on higher education” to halt the problem. Concerned about the government’s ability to “combat injustices,” the group has become more civically engaged than their elders. And if you’re wondering whether or not they’re narcissists, at least they’re plenty self-aware.

As the world’s largest generation, millennials will continue to leave an impression. To see who they are—and what they’ve already achieved—explore these standout magazines on Flipboard.

Millennial Generation by Francisco Kemeny: Even though the highly individualistic millennial shirks most trends, there are certain similarities within the group. See if you can spot some here.

Higher Education by Arthur R. Smith: An exceedingly well-educated bunch, Generation Y is making strides to change the future of education. In this mag, see what the future holds for higher learning.

Tech Savvy by Noneofyour Businesssir: Practically raised online, millennials were born early adopters. Today they’re responsible for some of technology’s greatest innovations. Like what? Read on.

Economy Watch by Jerry Bucknoff: After the recession began in 2008, millennials were thrust into an uncertain job market. While things have gotten marginally better, joblessness continues to plague young Americans. Is there hope? For a brighter perspective, look here.   

Social Media Updates by Juan Hernandez: For twenty and thirty-somethings, social media profiles can be more indicative of reality than, well, reality. But establishing a code of conduct has been a tricky, troublesome feat. In this magazine, watch as social media matures.

Youth Tech And Science by Brian Bailey: Marijuana legalization, the world’s most expensive potato salad and Instagram filters—these are just some of the concerns floating inside the average millennial’s mind. And when you take a closer look, they’re far from trivial, as this magazine demonstrates.

Your Quantum Mind in Action

Your Quantum Mind in Action | Cultural Trendz | Scoop.it

Did you know that you have a quantum mind? Do you know that it decides what is reality to you?  Here’s how….

The  many worlds theory of quantum mechanics  states that there are a limitless number of optional outcomes (past and future) in any situation. We select the outcome we experiences based on our specific expectations, focus and state at any point in time.  Imagine a limitless number of paths stretching out in front of you , each leading to a different result. Simply put, quantum mechanics postulates that we select one of those paths to act upon as our reality. If you haven’t seen  the movie “What the Bleep do We Know,” I’d highly recommend you get it and watch it.  It’s a great explanation of your reality!

When I heard that theory some twenty years ago, I knew it was true. All I had to to was to watch a football game with 2 guys rooting for 2 different teams and I could see quantum theory in action.  They each saw a totally different game!
We Are Quantum Computers

Thanks to neuroscience, I’ve recently learned  how and why quantum mechanics applies to every one of we humans. Quantum is part of us because It’s ALL in Our Minds! Here’s how it works….

We take in over 11m bits/second of sensory information.  Think about that for a minute. That’s a LOT of information from our eyes, ears, feelings and other senses.  


Contrary to what many of us were taught, out conscious mind does not process the information we take in. Our unconscious mind manages this vast flow of information.  


From that 11M bits/second, our unconscious mind selects 126 bits/second to give to our conscious mind for processing and action.   That’s .0000122 of the total information available to us.

Talk about selective attention! So what about all that other information we take in?  How many other realities are there in that 10.9 MB of data we ignore?


So What is Reality?

We each select a tiny percentage of information from a massive field of optional outcomes and data. What you or I select to act on is based on our individual mindware programs,  our current point of focus and our individual expectations.  The same is true for everyone on the planet. We each select.0000122 percent of our available data to process in every second. Want to make a bet about how many of us select the same 126 bits?

Quantum mechanics has proven that scientists see what they expect to see, particle or wave.  The same thing is true of each of us. We all choose our own unique reality from our ocean of sensory information. We process that selection with our own unique mindware programs and filters.

That means we each live in a reality of our very own selection. A reality that we choose and interact with based on our own  individual mindware. No two realities are alike.

Our quantum minds explain why multiple people can and do respond to the same stimulus with  multiple and very unique perspectives. Talk to anyone about a movie or a football game and you’ll get as many perspectives as you have people. The same goes from ev
