Hypervelocity Stars… really f%#$in sweet.

Stars propelled by black holes, rocketing through space.  In my mind that a really awesome image. These stars are not just traveling really fast their traveling 1.6 million mph fast. link.

Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern

Ryan Reynolds, well known funny guy now starring in the long awaited Green Lantern movie. I am pretty skeptical of this selection. I pictured someone who had a darker side to them, since being a superhero usually requires serving justice rather violently.  He has been a good actor in past movies that weren’t comedies such as Blade Trinity, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  I only hope that his sly humor doesn’t seep into what is supposed to be serious and virtuous character.

Seriously, What is Antimatter?!

Antimatter the opposite of real matter.  But wait, how can that be wouldn’t the opposite of matter be nothing? No, the best way to think of antimatter is to think of it as negative matter.  Modern Physics suggest that everything is made up of extremely small ten dimensional “strings”, and that there really is no such thing as nothing. What we term nothing would actually just be a dormant something. The following link explains some of the current research being done in the field.HERE. For some great reads on modern physics check out the list after the break. Continue reading

Get High on Digital Drugs

There has been a lot of buzz recently over these so called “digital drugs”. Some people are going as far as calling it a gateway drug, but really its nothing more then a tool to aid in relaxation. The audio is played at a certain frequency, this frequency can guide your brain into specific states. Check it out yourself. Hit the link after the picture, make sure you have some stereo headphones.

Independent Research & Development

Independent research and development is the genetrix of truth. Discovering truth on your own is akin to climbing a mountain alone, the greater the truth the higher the mountain. Here at IRAND the truth is what counts. The following is the process we use to make conclusions.

Everybody desires to know the truth, some more than others.  For those who feel inclined to follow thought to the logical conclusion, you are not alone.  Education is always to some degree bias, you should allow yourself to listen but should never believe without further investigation.  Here we feel very strongly that everyone should learn the truth for themselves. The truth is often times subjective, many times the support people give does not support the conclusion. Research should be systematic in approach, and aimed at discovery or revelation. When researching anything always gather information from multiple sources, separate fact from opinion, try not to be bias and already have an opinion formed, and most importantly follow logic by seeking validity.  When the research stage comes to an end it is time to develop your final conclusion.  Looking back at the research with an open and unbiased mind, ask yourself what is relevant to the truth of the matter.  After you have your valid and relevant information it is time to form your final conclusion. This should be the easiest step since all the hard work has already been done.  The conclusion should be sound, being composed without any invalid premises.  Like anything reaching conclusions requires practice, only once you have mastered the process will you truly be able to conclude with more certainty.  In time the process will be second nature, allowing you to be a master debater, and hopefully liberator of truth.  It is my belief and hopeful wish that in the future more people will follow this process, and humanity will reach the same truths.

Utopian Revolution

Someone famous said something like “be the change you want to see”. What does everyone want most? Happiness. Unfortunately in today’s society there is a lot to get in the way of true happiness. By independently researching and developing you can create a vision of the world you want to live in, and better yet set out to make it a reality.  So keep coming back and together lets strive to create a perfect world(whatever that may be).
