Scientists have discovered a way to destroy cancer tumors using nothing but sound waves

A recent breakthrough in high-intensity focused ultrasound therapy (HIFU) technology has proven its use as an effective cancer treatment. A multi-institutional research team from China developed a semi-enclosed, spherical cavity transducer that can produce a focused, standing-wave field with a subwavelength-scale focal region and extremely high ultrasound intensity. The spherical cavity transducer appeared to generate tighter focal regions and greater pressure amplitude compared with the traditional concave spherical transducer. Researchers said the level of intensity generated by the new transducer design may lead to significant improvements in HIFU therapy. The findings were published in the Journal of Applied Physics.

HIFU is a non-invasive, targeted treatment that makes use of sound waves to eradicate cancer cells. HIFU uses an ultrasonic transducer to convert electrical signals into sound waves, then concentrates ultrasound into a small focal region to raise the temperature to more than 65 decrees Celsius, thereby killing cancer cells in the process without inducing damage to surrounding tissues. The technique works in the same manner as focusing sunlight through a lens, which helps eliminate the disease-causing cells.

HIFU can be used as an alternative to traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and surgery.

Sound waves prove to be viable cancer treatment in various studies

High-intensity focused ultrasound therapy proved to be a highly-effective cancer treatment in various studies and clinical trials.

For instance, researchers at the University College Hospital in London examined 625 men with prostate cancer and found that 93 percent of patients who underwent HIFU alone remained cancer-free at five years following the treatment, without requiring surgery or radiotherapy. Data also showed that only one to two percent of patients who had HIFU treatment suffered long-term urinary incontinence, compared with 10 to 20 percent of patients who had surgery. In addition, only 15 percent of patients in the HIFU group developed erectile dysfunction compared with 30 to 60 percent of surgical patients.

“The results of this study are impressive and have the potential to transform prostate cancer treatment for many men in the future. It is extremely exciting technology and these results show that in men diagnosed early by prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood testing, this targeted therapy could be as effective as surgery to remove the whole prostate gland or radiotherapy and cause far fewer side effects,” said study co-author Tim Dudderidge.

The findings were presented at an annual meeting of the European Association of Urology in Munich, Germany.

A British clinical trial funded by the Medical Research Council has also found that 95 percent of patients who underwent HIFU therapy for prostate cancer remained cancer-free at 12 months after the treatment. The researchers also found that none of the respondents suffered urinary incontinence during the follow-up period.

Another sound wave innovation to watch out for

Researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada have developed a new technique that uses focused sound waves to activate minute particles known as nanodroplets. According to the researchers, the new technique was as accurate as using needles in biopsy.

“With a little bit of ultrasound energy, nanodroplets phase-change into microbubbles. That’s important because ultrasound can really oscillate these microbubbles. The microbubbles absorb of the ultrasound energy and then act like boxing gloves to punch the tumor cells and knock little vesicles off. That led us to detect some genes that were indicative of the aggressiveness of the tumour. That’s potentially very powerful. You can get a genetic characterization of the tumour, but do it relatively non-invasively,” said engineering professor Roger Zemp.

Age-reversing pill that Nasa wants to give to astronauts on Mars will begin human trials within six months

By Harry Pettit

Scientists have made a discovery that could lead to a revolutionary drug that actually reverses ageing.

The drug could help damaged DNA to miraculously repair and even protect Nasa astronauts on Mars by protecting them from solar radiation.

A team of researchers developed the drug after discovering a key signalling process in DNA repair and cell ageing.

During trials on mice, the team found that the drug directly repaired DNA damage caused by radiation exposure or old age.

‘The cells of the old mice were indistinguishable from the young mice after just one week of treatment,’ said lead author Professor David Sinclair.

Human trials of the pill will begin within six months.

THE ANTI-AGEING DRUG TRIALS

The experiments in mice, from a team at the University of New South Wales, suggest a treatment is possible for DNA damage from ageing and radiation.

It is so promising it has attracted the attention of Nasa scientists in their quest to reach Mars.

While our cells can naturally repair DNA damage – such as damage caused by the sun – this ability declines with age.

The scientists identified that the call signalling molecule NAD+, which is naturally present in every cell in the body, has a key role in protein interactions that control DNA repair.

Treating mice with an NAD+ ‘booster’ called NMN improved their cells’ ability to repair DNA damage caused by radiation exposure or old age.

Human trials of NMN therapy will begin within six months.

‘This is the closest we are to a safe and effective anti-ageing drug that’s perhaps only three to five years away from being on the market if the trials go well,’ said Professor Sinclair.

The work has drawn the attention of Nasa, which is considering the challenge of keeping its astronauts healthy during a four-year mission to Mars.

Even on short missions, astronauts experience accelerated ageing from cosmic radiation, suffering from muscle weakness, memory loss and other symptoms when they return.

On a trip to Mars, the situation would be far worse: Five per cent of the astronauts’ cells would die and their chances of cancer would approach 100 per cent.

Professor Sinclair and his colleague Dr Lindsay Wu were winners in NASA’s iTech competition in December last year.

‘We came in with a solution for a biological problem and it won the competition out of 300 entries,’ Dr Wu said.

Cosmic radiation is not only an issue for astronauts. We’re all exposed to it aboard aircraft, with a London-Singapore-Melbourne flight roughly equivalent in radiation to a chest x-ray.

Human trials will begin within six months. In theory, the anti-ageing pill could mitigate any effects of DNA damage for frequent flyers. The other group that could benefit from this work is survivors of childhood cancers.

Dr Wu says 96 per cent of childhood cancer survivors suffer a chronic illness by age 45, including cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancers unrelated to the original cancer.

‘All of this adds up to the fact they have accelerated ageing, which is devastating,’ he said.

‘It would be great to do something about that, and we believe we can with this molecule.’

The experiments in mice, from a team at the University of New South Wales, suggest a treatment for these issues is possible through a new drug.

While our cells can naturally repair DNA damage – such as damage caused by the sun – this ability declines with age.

For the past four years, Professor Sinclair and Dr Wu have been working on making NMN into a drug substance with their companies MetroBiotech NSW and MetroBiotech International.

The human trials will begin this year at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, in Boston.

Nassim Haramein: Spinors, Twistors, Quaternions, and the “Spacetime” Torus Topology

Rauscher, E.A., and Haramein, N., (2007). Spinors, twistors, quaternions, and the “spacetime” torus topology, International Journal of Computing Anticipatory Systems, 1373-5411.

Abstract: The dual torus topology occupies a central role in the spinor, twistor and quaternionic formulation. This topology appears to be ubiquitous in astrophysical and cosmological phenomena and is predicted by the U4 bubble of the affine connection in the HarameinRauscher solution to Einstein’s field equations. The geometric structure of the complexified Minkowski space is associated with the twistor algebra, spinor calculus, and the SUn groups of the quaternionic formalism. Hence quantum theory and relativity are related mathematically through the dual torus topology. Utilizing the spinor approach, electromagnetic and gravitational metrics are mappable to the twistor algebra, which corresponds to the complexified Minkowski space. Quaternion transformations relate to spin and rotation corresponding to the twistor analysis.

Newly found sunken continents suggests the mythical continent of Lemuria was REAL

Source: Ancient Code

Scientists have discovered at least TWO sunken continents on Earth. The discovery of these continents has changed the way we look at Earth’s history, offering new evidence which many authors have interpreted as material which points to the fact that the mythical continents such as Lemuria, Mu, and Atlantis were real.


Most of us are familiar with the legends of Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu. According to numerous legends and texts, Earth was home to numerous continents which have been ‘lost’ in the distant past. One of them is the continents of Lemuria, a massive landmass which is said to have stretched from India to Australia—before written history.

Just like Atlantis, the ancient landmass disappeared under mysterious circumstances and was forgotten by mankind tens of thousands of years ago.

During the 19th century, an English geologist called Philip Sclater mentioned the existence of a submerged landmass called Lemuria.

In an article—dubbed ‘The Mammals of Madagascar’—written in 1864, Sclater mentioned that lemur fossils were extremely abundant in Madagascar and India, but curiously, these fossils were missing in Africa and the middle East. This observation led Sclater to propose that during one point in the distant past, India and Madagascar were part of a broader continent referred to as Lemuria.

There are numerous studies which have proven recently—despite the idea of continental drift—that submerged continents exist on Earth.

Recently, scientists have made an incredible discovery east of Australia: A continent which has around 5 MILLION square kilometers, and it’s been hiding in plain sight for AGES. Only a small part of the continent—around 5 per cent—is visible today.

Experts suggest that today, only 5 percent of the once-mighty continent is visible, which is why researchers missed it in the distant past.

The region is mostly submerged land in the Pacific Ocean and contains both New Zealand and the French overseas territory New Caledonia.

“This is not a sudden discovery, but a gradual realization; as recently as 10 years ago we would not have had the accumulated data or confidence in interpretation to write this paper,” the researchers wrote in GSA Today, a journal of the Geological Society of America.

But there is more evidence which hints that submerged continents exist on Earth.

If we take a look at an area between mainland India and Sri Lanka, we will notice a curious geological formation.

Located in the Palk Strait, in the Indian Ocean, there is a particular geographical area, a thin strip of land that connects the south of India with Sri Lanka. It is called “Adam’s Bridge”.

Adam’s Bridge is believed to be the remains of an ancient pre-flood bridge. Possibly, the first ever bridge built on Earth.

Furthermore, it is believed that satellite images provided by NASA reveal that what we see could in fact be a collapsed bridge, now partially submerged under the ocean.

Dr. Badrinarayanan, the former director of the Geological Survey of India performed a survey of this structure and concluded that it was man-made. Dr. Badrinarayanan and his team drilled 10 bore holes along the alignment of Adam’s Bridge. What he discovered was startling. About 6 meters below the surface he found a consistent layer of calcareous sandstone, corals, and boulder like materials. His team was surprised when they discovered a layer of loose sand, some 4-5 meters further down and then hard rock formations below that.

A team of divers went down to physically examine the bridge. The boulders that they observed were not composed of a typical marine formation. They were identified as having come from either side of the causeway. Dr. Badrinarayanan also indicates that there is evidence of ancient quarrying in these areas. His team concluded that materials from either shore were placed upon the sandy bottom of the water to form the causeway. (Source)

According to Hindu tradition, this “strip of land” is a bridge built by Hindu god Rama, as told in the Hindu epic Ramayana. In fact, since ancient times it is known as the “Bridge of Rama” or “Rama Setu”.

The Indian epic Ramayana tells the story of the land bridge and how it was built to serve Hindu god Rama, in order to help him cross the water to reach the large island and rescue his beloved one from the clutches of the demon king Ravana. It is a story of love, brave deeds and incredible constructions as it seems. Rama is one of the most famous manifestations of the Supreme God and is recognized as the image, the spirit, and consciousness of Hinduism, one of the oldest religions in the world.

The stories which are many times interpreted as facts of Rama’s life are narrated in the Ramayana, an ancient Sanskrit epic, literally translated to “Rama’s Journey,” which speaks of a time when gods aboard ships (Vimanas) and giants walked the earth. Evidence of the Vimana and the giants have been found across the globe, in different countries.

Evidence of lost continents and ancient civilizations?

According to researchers, the Lemurian continent separated from the mainland sometime during the Mesozoic era because of the rising waters. Curiously, according to India’s National Institute of Oceanography, sea levels were around 100 meters lower some 15,000 years ago.

This resulted in a major flood which eventually led to the disappearance of not only an entire continent but entire civilizations that existed on Earth in the distant past.

According to Tamilnet, the continent of Lemuria is referred as “Kumari Kandam” in ancient Tamil literature.

Tamil is one of the world’s classical languages.

Tamil has continuous historical records for more than 2000 years and the Tamil language was recognized as a classical language in India (beside the other being Sanscrit).

Tamil does not belong to the Indo-European language family.

“One can imagine the strength and magnitude of the Tidal wave required to devour a mountainous area that had existed in the ancient coastal belt of the Tamil world,” says professor Shanmugathas.

The ancient continent of Kumari Kandam is said to have existed south of modern-day India, now below the Indian Ocean. Its people the Tamil are said to have spread across the world creating other civilizations after Kumari Kandam disappeared. There are several names by which the continents goes depending on spelling it can vary from Kumari Kandam, Kumarikkantam, and Kumari Nadu. The word ‘Kumari Kandam’ was first mentioned in a 15th-century version of the Skanda Purana –the largest Mahāpurāṇa, a genre of eighteen Hindu religious texts— and was written by Kachiappa Sivacharyara (1350-1420).

Interestingly, many authors indicate that the people of Tamil belong to the oldest civilization on the surface of the planet and when the continent of Kumari Kandam was lost to the sea, its people migrated to other parts of the planet founding different civilizations.

Lost continents: once a myth now a reality

An ancient continent that was once located between India and Madagascar has recently been found scattered on the bottom of the Indian Ocean. According to experts, three billion years ago, a continent covered the ocean where the East African island of Mauritius now lies.

Experts came to this conclusion after analyzing small fragments of minerals which date back 3,000 MILLION years. In some of the rocks of the island of Mauritius, home of the republic of the same name, you can find small fragments of minerals that are about 3,000 million years old. This would not have to be important, were it not because the young island, of volcanic origin, is barely seven to ten million years old? So where did the pieces of rock come from, and how is it possible that they are so old?

According to experts their origin lies in a “lost continent” located under the island, as researchers from the University Witwatersrand (South Africa) explained in a statement.

What do you think? Is it possible that tens of thousands of years ago—perhaps even further back in history, ancient civilizations lived on continents like Atlantis, Mu and Lemuria?

Recent studies have proven that in the distant past, Earth’s landmass was much different than it is today, one of the main reasons why numerous authors and researchers argue it’s not ludicrous to think that ancient civilizations like Atlantis existed somewhere on Earth.

Catastrophes of the past: poetic exaggeration or scientific facts?

Do People with Social Anxiety and High IQs Have a Rare Psychic Gift?

Source: The Mind Unleashed

Are sensitive, empathic, intelligent people, predisposed to social anxiety, and taking on the energy of others more prone to anxiety, drug and alcohol addictions, and mental health disorders, or do they bear a highly rare, psychic gift? The answer might be both.

hihh

From recent scientific research, it turns out that the empathic, sensitive mind is more prone to mental health disorders because they are more in tune with what is going on around them. These people aren’t “crazy,” as many articles would like us to believe, but anxiously searching for an answer to subtle psychic cues they take in from their environment – sometimes around the clock, seven days a week.

Considering the many modes of mind control currently being used on the population to alter their emotional states – from Artificial Intelligence, to alien implants, and even military industrial experiments that have proven to interact with our nervous system and brain – is it any wonder that the highly empathic among us might be overwhelmed with emotional information coming in from those around them?

Scientists are even said to have discovered an on/off switch for our consciousness deep in the brain  – which more than likely means we’re being controlled as never before. DARPA Is already challenging scientists to hook the human mind up to a super computer, presumably to be able to control us even more.

This constant mental processing of subtle emotional cues from others means that people with social anxiety are doing a lot more in their brains. They are more able to notice and interpret social cues from others, demonstrating a unique social-cognitive ability that only the truly empathic understand.

To further demonstrate this point, anxiety is the most commonly diagnosed “mental health problem” in the U.S. It affects more than 40 million adults, which means roughly 20% of the population lives with anxiety. Though anxiety can be absolutely crippling, and lead to much more severe depression as well as panic attacks, Western doctors are just starting to understand that some forms of anxiety may have been developed for a very good reason.

One research study out of Lakehead University discovered that people with anxiety scored higher on verbal intelligence tests. Another study conducted by the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya in Israel found that people with anxiety were far better than other participants atmaintaining laser-focus while overcoming a primary threat as they are being bombarded by numerous other smaller threats, thereby significantly increasing their chances of survival. 

Researchers even called this combination of traits “sentinel intelligence” meaning that people with highly developed senses are able to perceive threats that are invisible to others.

Yet another study found that people with common, garden variety anxiety have higher IQs than people who don’t. Scientists who published their findings in the journal, Frontiers in Evolutionary Neuroscience, said that worry may actually have a positive component.

Lighbulb copy

This doesn’t discount the fact that anxiety can be horrible to live with, and can actually lower our vibratory rate if left to run rampant, but it does indicate that a part of us – in many of us worrying empaths – is right about our gut feelings considering social situations and themanufactured emotions which are circulating through society right now.

Once we are aware that these feelings we are tuning into are real, we can moreappropriately decipher and handle them.

Empaths are world-class nurturers, because they are psychically picking up on others’ deepest worries, fears, hurts and pain. Science is just now starting to understand this. Instead of shouldering civilization’s discontent, we can simply acknowledge it, understand more about what might be causing it, and choose to stay sovereign in our own emotional space.

All of us are growing toward this more “in-tune” ability, but psychic people (including empaths) generally notice that they’re different from other people in ways that they can’t quite define. These people are usually labeled Anomalously Sensitive People, but really they are just people where the right side of the brain is allowed to ‘speak’ as much or more than the left – and in the Westernized, work-a-day world we constantly push left-brained thinking. Furthermore, psychic people have more whole-brained wiring, meaning they use their entire brains more completely than those who haven’t yet realized their own psychic gifts.

High IQ copy

And it isn’t just emotions the ‘anxious’ may be responding too. People with psychic sensibilities may have physiological sensitivities which include an over active immune system, psychogenic sensitivities, substance sensitivities and electro-magnetic radiation sensitivities.

Being an empathic, anxious person doesn’t mean you are crazy, but it does mean you are more prone to developing mental health challenges unless you learn to understand, accept, and support your psychic abilities. Feeling someone else’s emotions as though they were your own can be a gift, but only once you learn to siphon off the crud that the cabal-driven mental matrix has set up to enslave you.

Asymmetric structure in the supermassive black hole at the galaxy’s center

The supermassive black hole candidate at the center of our Galaxy (associated with the radio source Sgr A*) is a prime candidate for studying the physical phenomena associated with accretion on to a supermassive black hole. Sgr A* is thought to accrete at an extremely low rate; analogous situations in X-ray binary stars suggest that a jet may be present, making it challenging to formulate a fully self-consistent model that simultaneously explains its spectrum, its variability, its size and its shape. Because Sgr A* is by far the closest supermassive black hole, its expected angular size (the shadow cast from its event horizon) is the largest of any known black hole candidate, making it a prime target for studies using very long baseline interferometry at mm wavelengths, which are capable of reaching spatial resolutions comparable to the expected shadow size.

CfA astronomer Shep Doeleman was a member of a team of twenty-two astronomers that used a combination of three widely separated millimeter telescope facilities, the Very Long Baseline Array, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope, and the Large Millimeter Telescope Alfonso Serrano, to try to image the Sgr A* shadow. Their observations were taken in May of 2015 over the course of one evening, and the data from all the telescopes were analyzed to ascertain the geometry.

Astronomers have used an array of millimeter-wave telescope facilities to detect a small asymmetry that might be associated with the shadow of the black hole. Credit: NASA

The scientists found some evidence for an asymmetric shape – a tiny extension that seems to protrude only a few AU from the central source (one astronomical unit is the average distance of the Earth from the Sun). This preliminary result could be due to scattering of the radiation by interstellar material, but it might also be associated with the black hole. Other observers have reported spotting some similar asymmetries, but the picture remains uncertain. The new result is a step forward, however, and future observations will try to refine and extend the current conclusions.
