The Internet Shares…Crop Circles

The Internet helps us share stories, discoveries, observations, wisdom, beauty, knowledge, humor – and so much more, in ways that are extraordinary! Thank goodness for the people who form the chains that send all kinds of information around. This week WINN will post a video that has been forwarded many times and even if you’ve already seen…

Are Humpback Whales Altruistic?

That question has been researched and, “Humpbacks, it turns out, deliberately interfere with attacking killer whales to help others in distress. They don’t just defend their own babies or close relatives. They intervene on behalf of other species – a gray whale calf with its mother, a seal hauled out on an ice floe, even…

Curiosity and Ostrich Knees

Do you see the tilt of that ostrich’s head in the picture at the left? That’s curiosity. (If you can’t see it, the whole post can be found at http://www.WINNpost.org.) Curiosity is a great, great gift for every living thing that needs to gain information in order to survive. Seeking behavior is natural to all…

Where Does Research Begin?

The headline for a small article in New Scientist caught my attention: “Fish recorded singing dawn chorus on reefs just like birds.” Robert McCauley and his colleagues from Curtin University in Perth, Australia had noticed a fish choir off the coast and then spent 18 months recording the sounds: “Most of this underwater music comes…

Science and Intuition

By Cay Randall-May, Ph.D. Many healers, energy workers, and intuitives, such as myself, report sensing a field of energy that is near and interpenetrates the physical body. This energy is usually discounted by the contemporary scientific community for several reasons, primarily because of the apparent lack of objective, tangible data to support our impressions. Modern…

What Are Subtle Energies?

If you’ve had an experience of subtle energies, you may not be able to explain or prove it, but you’ve learned something about what they are. If you haven’t, you might understand a little more from the opening paragraphs in two books published a few years ago: SUBTLE ENERGY by William Collinge and VARIETIES OF…

Research Into Healing

By Daniel J. Benor, M.D. I started out as a complete skeptic about healing. In medical school, I had learned of the vast natural curative capacities of the body, and of spontaneous waxings and wanings of diseases of the body which could account for many healings attributed to healers. In my undergraduate training in psychology…

Gifts from Crises

Research has shown that a significant number of the people who go through the physical and psychological crisis of a Near Death Experience (NDE) are transformed by it. Many lose their fear of death and they also become more generous and less competitive, feel more joy, understand love in a new way, and have increased…

Healing With Vogel Crystals

Marcel Vogel was a great asset for IBM where he worked as a researcher from 1957 to 1984. He was a self-educated scientist who gained dozens of patents, one of them for the magnetic coating on 24” hard disk drive systems that we still use today. During the ten years before he joined IBM, his…

A Crab, a Shrimp, and….

As I read a short article in NEW SCIENTIST Magazine called “A crab, a shrimp and a fish go into a burrow…” a little movie formed in my imagination and I was charmed. Science doesn’t usually do “charming” but here is that story – Researcher Alexandra Hiller of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Apartado,…
