Canadian Government Quietly Compensates Daughter of MKULTRA Victim

 

 

 

 

The victim was kept in a chemically induced sleep for weeks and subjected to rounds of electroshocks, experimental drugs and tape-recorded messages played non-stop.

CBC News recently reported that the Canadian government reached an out-of-court settlement of $100,000 with Allison Steel, the daughter of Jean Steel, a woman who was subjected to horrific brainwashing experiments funded by the CIA.

The settlement was quietly reached in exchange for dropping the legal action launched by Allison Steel in September 2015. The settlement includes a non-disclosure agreement prohibiting Steel from talking about the settlement itself. However, the existence of the settlement and its total amount appeared in public accounts released by the federal government in October.

CIA-Funded Torture

Jean Steel’s ordeal began in 1957, at the age of 33. She was admitted at the Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal after being diagnosed with “manic depression and delusional thinking”.

The Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal, Canada

In the following months, Steel became a victim of CIA-funded MKULTRA experiments conducted by Dr. Ewen Cameron.

Dr. Ewen Cameron was a Scottish-born psychiatrist who served as President of the American Psychiatric Association (1952–1953), Canadian Psychiatric Association (1958-1959), American Psychopathological Association (1963), Society of Biological Psychiatry (1965), and World Psychiatric Association (1961-1966). During the 1950s and 1960, he was funded by the CIA to carry out experiments for the MKULTRA mind control program.

Cameron’s experiments aimed to “de-pattern” the victim’s mind through intense trauma in order to “re-pattern” it afterward. In other words, he was researching the basis of Monarch Programming – the mind control program that is often discussed on Vigilant Citizen.

Cameron believed a combination of chemically induced sleep for weeks at a time, massive electroshock treatments, experimental hallucinogenic drugs like LSD and techniques such as “psychic driving” through the repeated playing of taped messages could “de-pattern” the mind, breaking up the brain pathways and wiping out symptoms of mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. Doctors could then “re-pattern” patients.

However, the de-patterning also wiped out much the patient’s memory and left them in a childlike state. In some cases, grown adults forgot basic skills such as how to use the bathroom, how to dress themselves or how to tie their shoes.

Hundreds of pages detail the horrific experiments Jean Steel was subjected to.

According to a report written by Cameron, Steel was kept in a chemically induced sleep for weeks. One series lasted 29 days. A second lasted 18 days. The sleep therapy was accompanied by a series of electroshocks.

“She was extremely confused and disoriented but much more co-operative,” Cameron wrote in his report.

Nurses’ notes on her charts detail repeated doses of sodium amytal, and how Steel would pace the hall and rail about feeling like a prisoner: “‘It’s just like being buried alive. Somebody please do something.’ This was all said screaming at the nurse and doctor,” one note said.

Steel then began to exhibit bizarre behavior. Her daughter recounts:

“When you wanted to talk with her about something emotional … she just could not do it,” Steel said. “Her emotions were stripped. It took away her soul.”

Her mother would sit alone in the dark, writing codes and numbers on the walls.

“One time I came home and the ceiling was spray-painted with red swirls all over it,” Steel said. “She would take wallpaper and cut out little sections of it and she would pin it to the whole room.”

While MKULTRA is viewed by mass media as a “shameful episode of the past”, it is also part of our present. The program still exists in a much more refined version under the name of Monarch programming.

Here’s an interesting 1980 documentary about MKULTRA experiments in Canada produced by the CBC:

You’re Being Lied To About Hiroshima (And Much More..)

download (3)

Japan marked the 71st anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima by renewing calls for a nuclear weapons free world and urging leaders to follow the example of President Barack Obama and visit the bomb sites.  –Washington Post

It is the anniversary of dropping an atom bomb on Hiroshima. But the Hiroshima narrative is a lie.

We’ve reported at considerable length about how the whatever was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki didn’t have the kind of immediate destructive impact that is portrayed.

Crawford Sams who ran the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission in Japan had this to say about the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Transcript HERE.) :

When the bomb went off, about 2 thousand people out of 250 thousand got killed [in Hiroshima] – by blast, by thermal radiation, or by intense x-ray, gamma radiation … You see, it wasn’t “Bing” like the publicity here [said]: a bomb went off and a city disappeared. No such thing happened. That was the propaganda for deterrent …

 

When I came back to this country, I was appalled, from a military standpoint, to find that our major planners in the War Department were using their own propaganda, 100 thousand deaths, Bing! …

 

You don’t hear much about the effects of Nagasaki because actually it was pretty ineffective. That was a narrow corridor from the hospital … down to the port, and the effects were very limited as far as the fire spread and all that stuff. So you don’t hear much about Nagasaki.

We’ve reported that a squadron of 66 bombers were launched on August 6th (666) to bomb the municipality of Imabari, even though Imabari. had been bombed already, twice.

This bombing squadron may well have fire-bombed Hiroshima instead, as Hiroshima was not far away.  HERE is a video on the squadron and also a narrative from a book by Edwin Hoyt entitled Inferno, the Firebombing of Japan.

Here is some narrative from a PERTINENT PAGE in the actual book.

“Suddenly,  one day, I was told something unexpected,” Manabe said. “When I was looking at the train timetable, I found that no trains stopped at Imabari station … I wondered why the third largest city in the province had no train service. It  sounded ridiculous…

 

The other guy said, “Wow! No Imabari Station. But … all the trains pass by Imabari Station.”

 

A third guy stepped up … “It’s not strange at all. There’s no stop because there’s no Imabari City anymore. It got burned up last April in the air raid … No buildings, no houses, no people … The whole city burned up and the people ran away …”

 

A fellow soldier explained to Manabe. “The air raids came on the 26th of April and the 8th of May. Imabari was burned up. My father was in business there. We had a wholesale draper business. All gone. All burned up.”

The attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were horrible and tragic. But whether they were results of “atom” bombs (certainly in the sense that people understand them today) is at least seriously questionable.

More from the Post:

Quoting part of Obama’s speech in Hiroshima in May, Mayor Kazumi Matsui urged countries with nuclear weapons to “have the courage to escape the logic of fear, and pursue a world without them …

 

“I once again urge the leaders of all nations to visit the A-bombed cities.”  Like Obama’s, he said that such visits “will surely etch the reality of the atomic bombings in each heart.”

Visiting Hiroshima and Nagasaki won’t etch anything into your heart but lies.

And the sickening falsehoods allow politicians a faux rhetorical nobility that they don’t deserve.

Whatever happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki is nothing like what is being recited today.

Bikini Atoll, where additional atomic bombs were tested following the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks, was repopulated by 1968, even though radiation estimates suggested the island would be uninhabitable for a thousand years.

The actual bomb blasts seem to have been faked. Two years ago, the controversial but prolific investigator Miles Mathis – an artist and mathematician – published a debunking HERE entitled, The Bikini Atoll Nuclear Tests were Faked.”

…For more proof, we can go to Google. You can get a picture of the Bikini Atoll today from Google Earth. That’s dated 2013, not 1945. We are told the locals can’t live there now because of radioactivity, but we see at least three proofs against that.

 

…We see lots of plant life both on and offshore. Radioactivity affects plants just as it .affects animals, so the island should be barren.

 

Remember, the Bikini Atoll wasn’t said to be blasted by only Able and Baker. It was blasted 23 times, including three of the biggest blasts ever from US testing: the 4.5 megaton Navajo and the 5 megaton Tewa, in 1956; and the 15 megaton Bravo in 1954.

Why would Bikini Island tests have been faked if the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were real?

Did the US suddenly run out of bombs?

And what about Russia? How did the USSR make nuclear bombs while the Pentagon was faking theirs?

Mathis writes some photographs of USSR nuclear explosions appear fake.

When did the USSR get the “bomb?” And even more importantly, when did the US finally create the weapons of mass destruction that so frighten us today?

When did the Cold War really start? Did both sides know that nuclear weapons were not as powerful as advertised? Or maybe that they didn’t exist at all as described?

Hiroshima and Nagasaki themselves are thriving small cities and there is no appreciable difference in radiation between these two municipalities and other cities in Japan.

Additional issues (See sources at the end of this article.):

  • Death rates at Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not higher than elsewhere.
  • Three days after the Hiroshima bombing, a trolley was running again.
  • The bank at “ground zero” remains standing to this day.
  • Eight Jesuits hiding in their church survived the blast at ground zero to tell the tale – spared only by the intervention of the Virgin Mary.
  • Outside of the Jesuits, and one communist reporter who hated the US, there was no significant reporting from either Hiroshima or Nagasaki for at least a month.
  • For years in both Japan and the US, it was a crime punishable by death to speak or write about the bombings.
  • The entire atom bomb narrative created by the Pentagon was delivered to the public via a single writer from the New York Times who later turned out to be on the Pentagon payroll.

The narrative of the bombings was surely shaped just as the Pentagon and its controllers wished for it to be. It was acquiesced to by the Japanese government that had its own reasons for promoting nuclear untruths.

Whatever happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki has not been accurately reported. In fact, it is probably not too strong to say that what has been reported may constitute (in aggregate) one of the most profound lies of the 20th century.

It calls into question further “truths” about Western society that we live with to this day.

Nuclear weapons are a perfect propaganda for the state.

-Their tests cannot be ascertained at close range because they are too powerful.

 

-Their inner workings cannot be disseminated because they are “top secret.”

 

-Their programmatic elements cannot be observed by the normal media because too much information available to the public can stimulate adversarial or even terrorist activity.

Modern Western society is a virtual tissue of lies designed to make you believe you are living in a “civil society” (no, it’s not civil) faced by life-threatening challenges that only Western governments and the shadowy powers behind them can overcome.

The world is not running out of food, nor water. It’s not going to burn to a cinder because the air is clogged with “carbon.”

The economic disasters we face are purely man-made. Absent monopoly central banking, they would not exist.

Now we are facing “radical Islam” – another false narrative put in place by the same banking elite that has tortured the West for centuries.

This follows on the heels of numerous, serial US wars and the obscene, manufactured Hell of World Wars One and Two.

Thank goodness for the Internet and what we have called the Internet Reformation.

Thanks to information that has emerged from secret recesses (and the patterns they portray), we know more about the Way the World Really Works  than any single group of individuals in recorded history.

Conclusion: It has been a great privilege to live in these unusual times. However, please take note: The reality of the world has revealed a titanic struggle between good and evil. Which side are you on? And just as importantly, what are you going to do about it?

Some Nuclear Anomalies and Sources Pertaining to Questionable Hiroshima and Nagasaki Events

  • The dreaded mushroom cloud presented by the Hiroshima memorial is actually a photo of Hiroshima on fire. HERE.
  • A squadron of 66 bombers was directed to Imabari. in the early morning of August 6 (666) – the morning of the A-bomb – but Imabari. had been bombed already, twice. This bombing squadron might have fire-bombed Hiroshima instead. HERE.
  • Initial reports in Japan were that Hiroshima was firebombed. AP filed the same report. HERE.
  • In the aftermath of the explosion, Hiroshima (and Nagasaki) look no different than Tokyo after it was firebombed. HERE and HERE.
  • In Hiroshima numerous buildings are standing along with erect tree stumps. HERE.
  • Limited trolley service was revived in Hiroshima after only three days. HERE.
  • The Hiroshima bank at the epicenter of the bomb is fully functional and can be seen HERE.
  • Predictions of endless radiation poisoning for thousands of years proved untrue. Today, Hiroshima and Nagasaki’s radiation levels are normal.  HERE.
  • Outdoor shadows and other dramatic evidences of the Hiroshima bombing seem to be faked. HERE.
  • The initial American reporting on Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs  came from Wilfred Burchett and William L. Laurence. One was a communist (Burchett) who hated America and reportedly ended up on the Kremlin’s payroll. HERE.
  • The other was secretly a paid employee of US armed forces. He was the man who rode with the crew to witness the nuke dropped on Nagasaki. His report on the attack is painful to read for all the wrong reasons. HERE.
  • Laurence was also the only reported to cover the development of the atomic bomc, see the initial bomb testing (from 20 miles away) and to report from Nagasaki. In other words, only one reporter, paid by the US war dept, provided the entirety of the initial civilian narrative for the testing of nuclear devices and then bombing of Nagasaki. Just one. It was roughly the same at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Reporters were not allowed to visit. HERE.
  • Military officers were asked to exaggerate the injury count.
  • Hiroshima and Nagasaki were apparently shut down for months. There was no influx of Western reporters. The nuclear narrative was developed by the Pentagon from what we can tell. HERE.
  • It was immediately made a crime punishable by death in both the US and Japan to discuss nuclear attacks and the technology  that created them. (“The restricted dataclauses of the US Atomic Energy Act specifies that all nuclear weapons-related information is to be considered classified unless explicitly declassified, and makes no distinction about whether said information was created in a laboratory by a government scientist or anywhere else in the world by private citizens.”) HERE.
  • As for Little Boy, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, photos show it seems to lack the necessary antennas to function. HERE.
  • There were apparently several Little Boys of various sizes, not just one. HERE.
  • The narrative surrounding the dropping of the Hiroshima bombing is reportedly inaccurate. “Levers” were “pulled” to drop the bomb, but the automatic system did the job. HERE.
  • The automatic targeting system itself was an inaccurate device that reportedly might drop bombs miles from where the pilot hoped to deliver them. The odds that both bombs ended up delivering effective blasts are surprisingly low.
  • The Nagasaki bombing narrative was confused for decades. The story kept changing. Even the pilot was misidentified. The crews were switched. HERE.
  • The photos of the Nagasaki mushroom cloud are suspicious. They appear to be composite images with cloud cover inserted to ensure that identification of Nagasaki is impossible. HERE.  Other Nagasaki photos appear fake.
  • One of the two famous and supposedly identical photos of the Nagasaki mushroom cloud includes part of a plane. One of the photos is thus fake, or at least retouched. HERE.
  • For events of such magnitude, there are surprisingly few eyewitness accounts of the actual blast. Many eyewitness accounts start the day after the blast or during the firestorm. Only a few Japanese survivors have stepped forward to become regular “faces” of the blast.
  • There don’t seem to be any civilian photos of either mushroom cloud taken by Japanese civilians or even military facilities. This one HERE looks evidently faked.
  • Much of the Western Hiroshima narrative regarding the blast was developed by a single Jesuit priest who, along with other Jesuits, had survive at the epicenter of the blast through the intervention of the Virgin Mary. HERE.
  • The eyewitness accounts of the blast itself have a repetitive and artificial quality to them, at least the ones we read. One doctor claims to have treated 2000-3000 injured on the first day. HERE.

There are other disturbing elements to the Nagasaki and Hiroshima bombings, and if you are interested, you can see more documents calling many elements of the attacks into question HERE.

After years of economic hardship, the government of Puerto Rico pulled the trigger on a bankruptcy-like filing on Wednesday, turning the page in a saga featuring public officials, creditors and the 3.4m residents who have lost control of the island.

At stake is more than $120bn of debt and pension obligations, with investors braced for billions of dollars of losses. What caused this crisis and what awaits the US territory? How did Puerto Rico get into this predicament? Many politicians and historians attribute the economic crisis to changes to the tax code in 1996, when incentives for doing business on the island were slowly phased out.

By 2006 economic growth had slowed markedly. As the credit crisis ravaged the US mainland, Puerto Rico struggled, too, and financial regulators were forced to seize several banks. Puerto Rico continued to decline. The government kept on borrowing to fund operations, running large budget deficits and now has bond debts of about $74bn.

A federal oversight board installed by the US Congress estimated the island could only afford a quarter of that amount. Anne Krueger, the former first deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund, remarked bleakly in her 2015 report: “Structural problems, economic shocks and weak public finances have yielded a decade of stagnation, outmigration and debt.” What does the bankruptcy filing mean for Puerto Ricans? Puerto Rico’s near $50bn pension system is vastly underfunded and could be fully depleted by the end of this year. That would shift as much as $1.5bn on to the government’s annual budget, weighing on its ability to fund other public services.

Pensioners are preparing for cuts to their retirement pay. A fiscal plan proposed by the government has sought to cut payrolls, reduce subsidies to the island’s university system and slash spending on healthcare. Those changes could spur additional migration from the island, one of Puerto Rico’s most pressing problems. With more than 45 per cent of Puerto Ricans living below the poverty line, Puerto Ricans are moving to the US mainland in search of work.

What is Title III? Puerto Rico, like other US territories, was in no man’s land before the passage of the Promesa rescue legislation in Congress last year. The island is not a US local government or public corporation so it does not have access to typical bankruptcy protections. The rescue law borrowed heavily from the Chapter 9 bankruptcy code, allowing territories to restructure their debts under the purview of a control board in a process known as Title III.

The island must first prove that it attempted good faith negotiations with its creditors before the board can sign off on a Title III filing. Once it has, John Roberts, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, will designate a district court judge to oversee the court proceedings. Title III includes cramdown provisions, which can bind dissenting creditors to a plan that is signed off by the oversight board and the courts.

These provisions prevent holdout creditors from blocking a wider deal and needs agreement from only a single creditor class within Puerto Rico’s complex web of debt issuing agencies. “Title III puts a lot of power in the hands of the board, including seeking to have the court cram their plan down on to any dissenting class of creditors,” says Jim Millstein, the adviser to Puerto Rico’s previous administration and the former chief restructuring officer at the US Treasury, where he led the rescue of insurer AIG. “The risk of cramdown should alter everyone’s negotiating strategy, hopefully to prompt a settlement sooner than later.”

Who are the losers? Mutual funds, including Franklin Templeton and OppenheimerFunds, which are large holders of constitutionally backed general obligation bonds and junior sales tax-backed debt, are among the biggest losers in Puerto Rico’s default. The two fought vociferously against proposals under the previous governor, who offered higher payouts than the current administration. Monoline bond insurers, which insure a portion of Puerto Rican debt, are also facing losses. Distressed investors are in a difficult spot after the oversight board projected this year that Puerto Rico could afford far less on bond payments than previously predicted. Those investors, including Aurelius Capital Management and Monarch Alternative Capital, have already filed lawsuits against the territory.

How soon will this be resolved? No one knows how long a restructuring of Puerto Rico’s debts, the largest bankruptcy in the history of the $3.8tn municipal bond market, will last. In a best-case scenario, creditors could begin to settle with the oversight board in the next few months.

However, many advisers fear the process could last 18 months to two years — or even longer — costing millions in legal fees and depressing economic activity on the island. Litigation between creditors could also make its way to the Supreme Court, with holders of the sales tax-backed bonds — known as Cofina by its Spanish acronym — and general obligation bond investors both claiming they deserve seniority in a restructuring. “With that bankruptcy now started, the governor has forfeited all power over the restructuring, and the economy of Puerto Rico will be put on hold for years,” says Andrew Rosenberg, a lawyer with Paul Weiss who is advising some of the general obligation bondholders. “Make no mistake: the board has chosen to turn Puerto Rico into the next Argentina.”

 

Why Random Thoughts are Actually Important, Backed By ScienceLIFESTYLE

Some people call them earworms, some call them mind-pops, but random thoughts that enter your brain for no apparent reason are actually important, according to scientists. Our brains can surprise us with sudden random memories. It could be a line from a play that you were in from 6th grade or a song from a commercial that you saw last week.

The complete unpredictability of these thoughts is a fun part of being human; we get to still be amazed by our brains. Even when science has explored almost all of our grey matter, they are still able to learn new things that we are capable of.

Stray or random thoughts are what scientists call involuntary semantic memories. These thoughts are involuntary, meaning they were not something you were trying to think of. Semantic refers to facts or events, but the word itself means meaning. These random thoughts are memories that come back to you when you aren’t expecting them and they have no apparent meaning.

The most interesting part of these random thoughts is that they might not be random after all. Scientists think that these memories are trying to help you solve a problem.

THIS IS WHY RANDOM THOUGHTS ARE ACTUALLY IMPORTANT, BACKED BY SCIENCE

A song can get stuck in your head or pop into your mind at random. Often, it’s just a portion of a song that we hear repeatedly in our minds, like the chorus. The distinguishing feature of mind-pops is that we have no conscious control over them.

Music that pops into your head at random is called involuntary musical imagery. The more scientific definition of this musical phenomenon is ‘introspective persistence of a musical experience in the absence of direct sensory instigation of that experience.’ In other words, you are hearing things that aren’t really there, but that you have heard before.

musical earworm is usually a song with lyrics that you enjoy or a melody that brings up a particular emotion for you. These persistent songs that get stuck in your mind can be annoying, but what if they were trying to solve a problem for you, rather than annoy you?

Here’s an example:

* You are postponing doing your taxes because you have an unusual situation and might need help. Time goes by while you worry about this problem.

* Days later, the name song pops in your head and you start singing ‘Banana fana fo fana, Hannah.’

This makes you think of your friend Hannah that you knew in college who is now an accountant and who can probably help you with your taxes.

The random earworm song that popped into your mind helped you to remember that you have a friend who can help you solve your problem. Problem solving is one way that scientists believe our random mind pops are benefitting us.

A seemingly random thought can usually be traced back to a trigger. In this example, the trigger was the problem of needing help with filing taxes.

WHY DO WE HAVE RANDOM THOUGHTS?

Scientists believe that random thoughts are likely the result of memory processing and also creative thinking. You may start to notice that you have mind-pops more often when you have a problem that you want to solve.

It’s as if you have told your brain to search for things that can help you solve the problem and your brain responds with random things that are connected.

‘Researchers speculate that mind pops are the result of long-term semantic priming, with an initial exposure to a source of information ‘activating a web of representations in the mind that stay activated until a relevant stimulus in our environment’ triggers the semantic memory. The tenuous relationship between some of these initial activation experiences and the semantic memories that result from them minutes, hours, and even days later hints at a correlation between mind-popping and creative thinking,’ an ability to perceive connections between seemingly unrelated concepts.

People who experience frequent random thoughts tend to rate higher on tests of creative thinking. In a study of the brains of research subjects and their random thoughts, ‘High-frequency mind pops were significantly associated with “larger grey and white matter volume in the prefrontal cortex. This increase in mind pops is also linked to higher creativity and the personality trait of ‘openness.”

HOW YOU CAN MAXIMIZE RANDOM THOUGHTS FOR YOUR BENEFIT

Being mindful is the best way to make use of random thoughts to enhance your creativity. Here are a few ideas to help you allow your random thoughts solve problems for you:

Dwell on the random thought for 90 seconds – Sing along with the song or immerse yourself in the memory that was brought up.

* Read 7 Things That Keep You From Living in the Now – Our guide to avoiding things that keep you from being mindful will help you make use of random thoughts when they happen.

* Think briefly about your current problem – What is it that you are currently struggling with?

Think about how the random thought connects to the problem – Is there a connection between the random thought and the problem?

 ¿Por qué los pensamientos aleatorios son realmente importantes, respaldados por la ciencia?

Algunas personas les llaman earworms, algunos llaman mind-pops, pero los pensamientos aleatorios que entran en su cerebro sin razón aparente son realmente importantes, según los científicos. Nuestros cerebros pueden sorprendernos con recuerdos al azar repentinos. Podría ser una línea de una obra en la que estuvieras en el sexto grado o una canción de un comercial que viste la semana pasada.

La imprevisibilidad completa de estos pensamientos es una parte divertida de ser humano; Llegamos a estar aún sorprendidos por nuestros cerebros. Incluso cuando la ciencia ha explorado casi toda nuestra materia gris, todavía son capaces de aprender nuevas cosas de las que somos capaces.
Los pensamientos dispersos o aleatorios son lo que los científicos llaman recuerdos semánticos involuntarios. Estos pensamientos son involuntarios, lo que significa que no eran algo que estaban tratando de pensar. Semántica se refiere a hechos o eventos, pero la palabra misma significa significado. Estos pensamientos al azar son recuerdos que vuelven a ti cuando no los esperas y no tienen un significado aparente.
La parte más interesante de estos pensamientos aleatorios es que pueden no ser aleatorios después de todo. Los científicos piensan que estos recuerdos están tratando de ayudar a resolver un problema.

ES POR ESO QUE LOS PENSAMIENTOS ALEATORIOS SON REALMENTE IMPORTANTES, APOYADOS POR LA CIENCIA
Una canción puede quedar atrapada en tu cabeza o entrar en tu mente al azar. A menudo, es sólo una porción de una canción que escuchamos repetidamente en nuestras mentes, como el coro. La característica distintiva de la mente-estallidos es que no tenemos ningún control consciente sobre ellos.
La música que se mete en la cabeza al azar se denomina imágenes musicales involuntarias. La definición más científica de este fenómeno musical es “la persistencia introspectiva de una experiencia musical en ausencia de la instigación sensorial directa de esa experiencia”. En otras palabras, usted está escuchando cosas que no están realmente allí, pero que usted ha oído antes.
Un earworm musical es generalmente una canción con las líricas que usted goza o una melodía que traiga para arriba una emoción particular para usted. Estas canciones persistentes que se atascan en su mente puede ser molesto, pero ¿qué pasa si estaban tratando de resolver un problema para usted, en lugar de molestarle?

Estas canciones persistentes que se atascan en su mente puede ser molesto, pero ¿qué pasa si estaban tratando de resolver un problema para usted, en lugar de molestarle?
He aquí un ejemplo:
* Usted está posponiendo haciendo sus impuestos porque tiene una situación inusual y podría necesitar ayuda. El tiempo pasa mientras se preocupa por este problema.
* Días después, el nombre de la canción aparece en tu cabeza y comienzas a cantar ‘Banana fana fo fana, Hannah’.
* Esto te hace pensar en tu amiga Hannah que sabías en la universidad que ahora es un contador y que probablemente pueda ayudarte con tus impuestos.
La canción al azar del earworm que apareció en su mente le ayudó a recordar que usted tiene un amigo que puede ayudarle a solucionar su problema. La solución de problemas es una de las maneras en que los científicos creen que nuestra mente al azar nos está beneficiando.

Un pensamiento aparentemente aleatorio suele rastrearse hasta un desencadenante. En este ejemplo, el desencadenante fue el problema de necesitar ayuda para presentar impuestos.
¿POR QUÉ TENEMOS PENSAMIENTOS ALEATORIOS?
Los científicos creen que los pensamientos aleatorios son probablemente el resultado del procesamiento de la memoria y también el pensamiento creativo. Usted puede comenzar a notar que usted tiene mind-pops más a menudo cuando usted tiene un problema que usted desea resolver.
Es como si usted le haya dicho a su cerebro que busque cosas que pueden ayudarle a resolver el problema y su cerebro responde con cosas aleatorias que están conectadas.
Los investigadores especulan que los estallidos mentales son el resultado de un cebado semántico a largo plazo, con una exposición inicial a una fuente de información que activa una red de representaciones en la mente que permanecen activadas hasta que un estímulo pertinente en nuestro entorno desencadene la memoria semántica. La tenue relación entre algunas de estas experiencias iniciales de activación y los recuerdos semánticos que resultan de ellas minutos, horas e incluso días después sugiere una correlación entre el pensar mental y el pensamiento creativo, una capacidad de percibir conexiones entre conceptos aparentemente no relacionados.

Las personas que experimentan pensamientos aleatorios frecuentes tienden a calificar más alto en las pruebas del pensamiento creativo. En un estudio de los cerebros de los sujetos de la investigación y sus pensamientos aleatorios, “los estallidos mentales de alta frecuencia se asociaron significativamente con” mayor volumen de materia gris y blanca en la corteza prefrontal. Este aumento en la mente pops también está vinculado a una mayor creatividad y el rasgo de personalidad de la “apertura”.
CÓMO USTED PUEDE MAXIMIZAR LOS PENSAMIENTOS ALEATORIOS PARA SU BENEFICIO
Ser consciente es la mejor manera de hacer uso de pensamientos aleatorios para mejorar su creatividad. Aquí hay algunas ideas para ayudarle a permitir que sus pensamientos aleatorios resolver problemas para usted

Dwell en el pensamiento al azar durante 90 segundos – Canta junto con la canción o sumergirse en la memoria que fue educado.

No accepted medical use? There are scores of studies that say differently.

Cannabis is a Schedule I drug in the United States. That means the government has designated the plant as having no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.

6 Reasons Why Most Scientific Research Is Fake, False Or Fraudulent

 

Test Tubes Fake ScienceChristina Sarich, Staff
Waking Times

How often do scientists smugly quote the latest research on a topic only later to be made the fool by insider revelations that published research in peer-reviewed journals is abjectly false? This happens so frequently now, that it has become clear: Science is broken, and most scientific research is fraudulent.

It isn’t broken like a bike needing a new tire, or even an outdated paradigm that has reached its tipping point, as in the time of the renaissance. Modern science is broken for reasons that might shock you.

First, there’s a replication crisis. More and more studies simply cannot be replicated, so any false theories are not thrown out, but left floating as acceptable ‘fact’ in the hallowed scientific ethers, when they are nothing more than studies paid for and promoted by the companies who have a marked interest in proving their personal hypothesis.

Take for example a recent review of 67 blockbuster drug discovery research findings published in prestigious journals. A review of the studies found that three-fourths of them weren’t right. Bayer simply couldn’t replicate findings that were published in more than 75 percent of their drug trials. Another study of cancer research found that only 11 percent of preclinical cancer research could be reproduced – but the problem isn’t just in the pharmaceutical industry.

Even in physics, supposedly the most complex and most reliable of all sciences, two of the most flaunted physics results of the past few years — the announced discovery of both cosmic inflation and gravitational waves at the BICEP2 experiment in Antarctica, as well as the supposed discovery of superluminal neutrinos at the Swiss-Italian border — have now been retracted.

Why the gross negligence in a field that has been heralded as sacrosanct? The errors in science have been due to simple arithmetic miscalculations or excel spreadsheet mistakes, but they are also due to industry greed and outright fraud.

Science has even discredited itself – in one study meant to hoodwink the very prestigious British Medical Journal, a paper with eight major errors was submitted. Not a single one of the 221 scientists who reviewed the paper caught all the errors in it, and only 30 percent of reviewers recommended that the paper be rejected.

Second, scientists can manipulate data almost any way they deem fit. Data can be excluded, included and re-arranged to support the presupposition of any scientist.

Third, the scientific community doesn’t listen to women, young people, or those whose ideas go against the current scientific dogma. The greatest scientific pioneers were once weirdoes with wiry glasses and grandiose ideas that they set out to prove with the scientific method. Now, we have an aged scientific population, that is mostly white and male, worried about getting tenure at their institutions or that have been lobbied directly by pharmaceutical and biotech industries to promote a certain plan that affects our entire sociological structure.

Next, its all about the fame and money. These two things alone kill objectivity. Industry-funded studies completely ignore conflict of interest and skew any possible hope for real scientific results. This is why institutions like the FDA, supposedly founded on scientific study, are a complete fraud.

Finally, its about the social pandering to guys in white lab coats. We’ve made scientists Gods while ignoring that they are people with greed, lust for power, and other very human traits.

There aren’t just cracks in the current scientific community, there are gapping gulches that need to be addressed. William A Wilson writes:

Even if self-correction does occur and theories move strictly along a lifecycle from less to more accurate, what if the unremitting flood of new, mostly false, results pours in faster? Too fast for the sclerotic, compromised truth-discerning mechanisms of science to operate? The result could be a growing body of true theories completely overwhelmed by an ever-larger thicket of baseless theories, such that the proportion of true scientific beliefs shrinks even while the absolute number of them continues to rise. Borges’ Library of Babel contained every true book that could ever be written, but it was useless because it also contained every false book, and both true and false were lost within an ocean of nonsense. [First Things]

Skeptic of science, Michael Shermer, says that science is “a set of methods designed to describe and interpret observed or inferred phenomena, past or present, aimed at building a testable body of knowledge open to rejection or confirmation.”

Science is modifiable and falsifiable, just like religion. So why have we made it the modern day, untouchable dogma? We can’t treat beliefs as facts, but when science is broken we do. How do we trust science again when it is so shattered? Perhaps its time to trust our guts again, and not every testimony given in the latest scientific journal.
