New "Mind Reader" patent application uses unvocalized words

New "Mind Reader" patent application uses unvocalized words to express unvocalized thoughts.

Public can use this disclosure for further innovation/brainstorming/etc. -http://www.google.com/patents/WO2013166377A1?cl=en

You can also brainstorm from the "prior art" patents/applications, too, to make a "new and better device" than that disclosed.  Have fun!

"Coupling an electronic skin tattoo to a mobile communication device....A system and method provides auxiliary voice input to a mobile communication device (MCD). The system comprises an electronic skin tattoo (110) capable of being applied to a throat region of a body. The electronic skin tattoo can include an embedded microphone (103); a transceiver for enabling wireless communication with the MCD; and a power supply (104) configured to receive energizing signals from a personal area network associated with the MCD. A controller (101) is communicatively coupled to the power supply. The controller can be configured to receive a signal from the MCD to initiate reception of an audio stream picked up from the throat region of the body for subsequent audio detection by the MCD under an improved signal-to-noise ratio than without the employment of the electronic skin tattoo."

How do animals find their way home?

Pets and their owners can become very close, this is known.  When a pet becomes lost, it seems to find its way home, despite long distance and many adversities.  There are many theories how this homing instinct works, and it could be a combination of cues to re-unite pets with owners.

One explanation, proposed by J.B. Rhine, is a phenomenon called "Psi-Trailing".  This might be described as the owner and pet communicating using their "minds", much like a game of "Marco-Polo".  Who says this can't happen?

In fact, as technology improves, or our understand of minds improves, we might find ways to augment this psi-trailing.  

  1. Maybe there will be computer-assisted "psi-trailing" to bring people and/or pets back to one another.
  2. How about an electronic "dowsing tool" to zero in on the missing person or pet?  There exist electronic dowsing rods.  Maybe these same tools could be used to find lost pets or people.
  3. Perhaps "galvanic skin response" could be a kind of "psychic compass"
  4. Once dream analysis becomes a science, we might be able to get hints or suggestions of where to look.
Our mind and our pet's mind are wonderful creations, much to be revealed yet, though.

Animals Can Now Warn Us of an Impending Disaster, Such as an Earthquake or Tsunami

Animals Can Now Warn Us of an Impending Disaster, Such as an Earthquake or Tsunami - This Life Saving Device Might Be Tested at Zoological Parks Soon
The article "Sheep Collar Texts Shepherds When Wolves Attack" was published recently. Could animals warn us of impending natural disasters too, using this concept?

Swiss biologists recently devised a sheep collar to alert shepherds of wolves, and other dangers to their sheep. This collar monitors heart rate changes in the sheep and sends a text message when the sheep are frightened, such as when a wolf is near.

It seems to me that animals could also "text" if a natural disaster was imminent, such as an earthquake, tsunami, and/or tornado.....http://voices.yahoo.com/animals-now-warn-us-impending-disaster-such-11879369.html?cat=15

"What Animals Can Teach Us About Health and the Science of Healing"

"Book Review: Zoobiquity: What Animals Can Teach Us About Health and the Science of Healing by Horowitz and Bowers" - http://blogcritics.org/books/article/book-review-zoobiquity-what-animals-can/

"Zoobiquity: What Animals Can Teach Us About Health and the Science of Healing by cardiologist Natterson Horowitz and journalist Kathryn Bowers is about the commonality of disease processes in humans and the animal kingdom.

The authors discuss such things as how the dinosaurs suffered from brain cancer and gorillas experience depression. They note that the heart rate of white-tailed deer slows down in response to the presence of danger;such as wolves.

The authors document that smoke, alcohol, excess sunlight and obesity alter the DNA sequences to yield various types of cancer. Large species like blue whales have a lower incidence of cancer due to Peto's Paradox. The DNA replication in large animals protects them from cancer according to this principle.

Animals like wolves have an inherent instinct for self preservation even if intolerable pain is one of the choices. For instance, a wolf will gnaw off a paw to be freed from a hunter's snare.

The authors show how severe stress is known to alter the heart chemistry through a process called takotsubo cardiomyopathy. Examples are neurogenic myocardial stunning, stress-induced cardiomyopathy and transient left ventricular apical ballooning. Physicians understand takotsubo because the heart communicates with the brain, starting from the womb.

Obese humans have greater numbers of firmicutes in the intestine;whereas thin people have greater bacteroidetes there. The firmicutes are all gram-positive bacteria;whereas proteobacteria which are gram-negative. Mice experience a similar phenomena as obese humans. Therefore, diet and exercise are not the only factors influencing weight gain or loss.

Koalas get diseases also found in humans such as chlamydia. Animals also commit suicide; such as those with terminal parasitic infections.

Zoobiquity is an excellent book which explains the commonality between human and animal disease processes. The book is well researched. Samples of research citations are the Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, the Spanish Journal of Psychology and theInternational Journal of Eating Disorders.

The authors believe that understanding disease processes in animals will benefit humans, as well as animals." - http://blogcritics.org/books/article/book-review-zoobiquity-what-animals-can/

Earthquake Prediction Using Nature's Signals - Mother Nature Called and Said to Watch for Earthquakes

"Recently, we had a minor earthquake in our area. I was intrigued enough to study this subject. What I found was amazing.

Amazing, in that, there are many precursors to an earthquake, mostly from the natural world. Typically, animals, including some people, behave strangely. Water levels change and wells become murky. There are ground noises. The sky looks different. The list goes on but it is evident that nature gives us an early warning if we just look and listen for it......" - http://voices.yahoo.com/earthquake-prediction-using-natures-signals-11403938.html?cat=58

Interspecies Communication, Sympathy, Empathy

"In a stunning display of interspecies connectedness, a herd of wild elephants was recently seen mourning the death of their friend and savior, Lawrence Anthony. Anthony passed away on March 2, 2012......Elephant Whisperer....." - https://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/wild-elephants-mourn-death-of-elephant-whisperer/


Remote Viewing....Let Your Mind Do the Walking...

Found this site, thought you all might be interested....http://www.irva.org/index.html

"IRVA is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the responsible use and development of remote viewing. We are an independently formed member organization of scientists, remote viewing professionals, students, and other interested persons. For more information, read the Letter of Invitation from Russell Targ, President Emeritus of IRVA.

Remote viewing is a novel perceptual discipline for gaining information not available to the ordinary physical senses. Used extensively by so-called "psychic spies" during the Cold War for classified military projects, it has a long history both as an intelligence gathering tool and as the subject of research and applications in the civilian world. Remote viewing has now taken a long step into the public domain with the formation of a professional association to educate, research, propose standards, test performance, and promote public awareness of this unique human mental capacity."


Tom Sez - I'm particularly interested in how hypnosis might enhance remote viewing....hmmmm?
