Almost no other insect has helped humans as much as the honey bee has and continues to do. For hundreds of years, beekeepers have raised them, harvested their wonderful sweet honey, and relied on them to pollinate various crops. Did you know that bees actually pollinate nearly one-third of the food crops in the world?

The concept of the invisible ether or 'aether' is an old concept dating to the time of the ancient Greeks. They considered the ether as that medium which permeated all of the universe and even believed the ether to be another element. Along with Earth, Wind, Fire and Water Aristotle proposed that the ether should be treated as the fifth element or quintessence; this term which literally means 'fifth element' has even survived down to the present day to explain an exotic form of 'dark energy' which is crucial in some cosmological models. These ideas spread throughout the world until the advent of a new springtime in scientific thought. The first person in the modern era to conceive of the idea of an underlying ether to support the movement of light waves was seventeenth century dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens.

Intuition - Knowing What You Know PDF Print E-mail

We are reluctant to acknowledge the validity of new ideas unless they receive the blessing of science. This, in essence, diminishes our intuitive powers and natural wisdom to having little significance. By doing so, we are declaring ourselves scarcely capable of knowing something unless it has been studied and proven to be true by scientifically trained people. Modern science has only been around for a very short time in the recorded history of mankind, so why is it now the ultimate source of truth for all our ideas and beliefs? How did people survive, some in societies more advanced than our own, without science? Are we so insecure about ourselves that we have turned over all our ability to create wisdom and truth to a small community of people whose job it is to validate our existence? I find Quantum Physics fascinating, so I don't wish to criticize scientists, but they are not divine. They are using scientific process to prove theories that don't need proof for anyone who has faith in life and belief in their Higher Self. In all fairness, however, I must praise scientists with the highest regard, for leading the way to the enhancement of our lives through the development and refinement of technology. Without them we would be living in a world of physical struggle. On the other hand, if we had instead relied on our knowing, we might even be much farther along.

One of the first things we’re taught about space is that every planet needs a star around which to orbit. But Einstein postulated nearly a century ago that the universe might actually be full of “homeless” planets which have no star to call their own. Now a group of Japanese researchers may have found a large number of stars that are more or less free-floating in space with no home stars, suggesting that Einstein’s theory was correct.
