“Radiolab stares down the very moment of passing, and speculates about what may lay beyond.
I find the notion of past life regression very interesting. The combination of the pseudo-science with a spirituality grounded in desire for self improvement creates an odd, self-generated mysticism.
“We unconsciously carry experiences, stored memories, attitudes, beliefs and skills from prior lifetimes. Even personal relationships continue over time! The subconscious mind carries all this knowledge, even from ancient times. Past Life Regression allows you to tap into that knowledge, allowing you to go “back in time.” You can learn the origin of fears, skills and feelings toward other people you feel you’ve “known before.” We all carry “baggage” from life to life across the years; past life regression brings these memories into conscious awareness. Now you can take steps to clearing memories and blockages that keep you stuck in the past.”
Simple but interesting to think about relative time.
A timeline which details main events occuring in 8000 BCE -10000 years ago.
An interactive map. In context of where we have been, 10000 years and beyond. Very interesting to see both how human moved across the continents and what they left behind.
