If you’re not doing anything right now or if you’re just scrolling through Tumblr, please stop and watch this right now. 

This is an entry from The Marble Hornets youtube “documentary”, and it is probably the most spine chilling/spine tingling thing you’ll ever watch. This wont give away any spoilers, but I think that the introduction video and first few videos to the series aren’t engaging enough to keep people attached to it until after the first 10 episodes. Like many good shows, it wont pick up until you go through a bit of episodes; but this shows you a bit of the gift you’ll receive from watching the series.

This is the realist thing you’ll ever witness and it will keep you up at night. If you’re scared too easily then do not watch these videos at night. These are much more fun and thrilling with friends, but 20 times scarier alone. (If you want to live through a good night, then I encourage you to not watch this alone in a dark room.)

If you want to know more about this series please read further down from here: 

Marble Hornets is a series 4-5 years in the making. It is about Jay, the protagonist, who finds his old friend’svideo tapes from when they were recording a college film called “The Marble Hornets”. Given these tapes by his friend - Alex - to burn, Jay forgets them in the attic until one day he rediscovers them. Buried within these tapes are the secrets as to why Alex went missing, what happened to the film, and a mystery that will forever change his life - and haunt him for the days to come. Each big realization as to what happened brings him more tapes and clues, leading him to learn that some people are not who they seem. With 2 masked men watching him, a tall faceless man stalking every character from the series, and a constant amount of memory loss, these videos are going to keep you up all night long (no joke, I am dead serious).

If you want to know how real this stuff is, he only posts videos once a month - most of the time. This corresponds to the time it actually takes in the series to find new clues and tape them, making everything seem real (If it isn’t. There is literally no indication as to if this is really going on or if it’s a hoax). Here’s a little hint to breathe life into the amount of realism these entries show. A while back ago everyone thought that the gig was up because no video had been posted for 8 months. When a video came out, everything was confusing. The protagonist had woken up in a random hotel and knew nothing - only a locked safe in his room. It turned out that in the series Jay, the protagonist, lost his memory - for a span of 8 months. I’m not making this up, you can check the series for yourself. That is how real this series makes itself feel.

If you’ve read this far into my description, good for you. But now, go watch the series…

PAST LIFE REGRESSION 
So this is an actual technique used by some specialized therapist.What they do is hypnotize a person, and the person experiences a series of flashbacks of who they were in their past lives. It does work, and it definitly does help people figure out who they really are. For example, someone who has been afraid of the ocean for their entire life figured out they were drowned in their past life. Someone who felt hurt and neglected by an ex-wife, found that in another life he was her father and abandoned her. It was part of a karmic balance. 
If you have a burning question as to what’s going on in your life and why it’s happening, you should try it out. It definitly can help. Find a therapist near you who does this ! Google is your best friend.

In high school I took a lot of social science classes. It was interesting, but all the politics and the roaring debates in classroom was a major turn off. Don’t get me wrong. I recognize it’s important. But to me, it was a whirling pool of anger and resentment.
That’s not the major reason I chose to be a science major, but it’s a contributing factor. I thought science was all factual information. People in lab coats striving to better understand our world. To me that was beautiful and I wanted to be a part of it. Burning people at stake for a different viewpoint was centuries ago… right? 
Wrong. Science is just as susceptible to that “whirlpool of anger and resentment” as anything else. Even if something has been proven with impeccable data and results, it does not guarantee acceptance with open arms.
Take Dr.Bruce Lipton for example. We now take epigenetics (study of changes due to modified gene expression) seriously. But in the 1990’s when the topic was first introduced, scientists blew up into hysterics at the thought of the concept. This is why Dr.Lipton left the academia for good in 1992, because although his experiments supported his views, he felt his message was falling onto deaf ears.
An interesting book, I’m reading called The Mind (edited by John Brockman) also highlights an example. When Darwin came back from his voyage, he displayed his Galapagos finches and reptiles, the crucial evidence of evolution. John Gould who was a great ornithologist at the time and knew a lot about birds, corrected some of Darwin’s information and gave him more crucial information in support of evolution. 
But Gould himself still remained a creationist and didn’t stand for evolution. As the book says "the man who knew more saw less and the man who knew less saw more"
I learned that great things take time. Facts and statistics don’t persuade people. Some are forever imprisoned by their own beliefs.
Here is a great article on how some people respond to scientific evidence by twisting information to fit their preexisting views (LINK)
Ofcourse science is a ever changing field and I’m sure by the time I’m 40, science textbooks will be revised and edited many times over. But many new concepts are heavily ridiculed and then gradually accepted generations later. 
"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."
-Max Planck

I aspire to be you.

Telling short films through gifs: THE MAKER

In this short film an odd creature awakens to find time ticking away. He opens up a book and starts making another creature similar to him. You might think he’s making a lover for himself, but in the end he hands his creation the same book and is wisped away, forever gone. 

His new creation now has to make a creation of her own. 

I like this short film because it represents life. You know that old “we’re going to die anyway so what’s the point”. The point is even though we don’t live on, our ideas, our creations, and our views do. They will be passed on and molded for generations to come with each one getting more beautiful as time moves on. 

And that makes it worthwhile.

"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you." - Frida Kahlo

TRIGGER WARNING: CHILD ABUSE, SEXUAL ABUSE
Don’t Make Me Go Back, Mommy is a children’s book published in 1990. It was written in the midst of the Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) a national panic of the late 80s early 90s in the US. Daycare providers across the country were being accused of using children for satanic practices, ritualized rape, and even human sacrifice, 
According to rational wiki, this movement turned out to be just a dark hype. Many speculate that no real children were actually hurt. And any children who claim they were being abused, created the memories rather than recover them. 
Anyway here are some pages from the book: 

The “magic juice” is code word for drug. The white rabbits are supposed to represent the children.

This page refers to victims becoming “brides of Satan” through terrifying rituals. 

Becky’s birthday refers to an occult ritual

Phrases said to children to mind control them

The handler becoming the “other mommy”, the real mother losing her “title”. More disturbingly, the text refers to the “movie star room” which is where ritual abuse is filmed by the handlers.

The child here refers again to abuse coded as “magic surgery”. The “monster” in the child probably refers to the fact that victims are assigned to demons during trauma.
