The God Chemical: Brain Chemistry And Mysticism

by Barbara Bradley Hagerty

May 18, 2009

For much of the 20th century, mainstream science shied away from studying spirituality.

Sigmund Freud declared God to be a delusion, and others maintained that God, if there is such a thing, is beyond the tools of science to measure.

But now, some researchers are using new technologies to try to understand spiritual experience. They’re peering into our brains and studying our bodies to look for circumstantial evidence of a spiritual world. The search is in its infancy, and scientists doubt they will ever be able to prove — or disprove — the existence of God.

Building in Iceland? Better Clear It With the Elves First

NY Times by Sarah Lyall

HAFNARFJORDUR, Iceland – Do elves exist? Like many Icelanders, Hildur Hakonardottir considers the question to be more complicated than it appears.

“This is a very, very, very delicate question,” Ms. Hakonardottir, a retired museum director, said. “If you ask people if they believe in elves, they will say yes and no. If they say yes, maybe they don’t, and if they say no, maybe they do.”

In Kopavogur, a section of road was narrowed to accommodate elves thought to live in the nearby rock. Pall Stefansson for The New York Times.

Hypothetically speaking, what does she think elves look like?
“Well, my next-door neighbor is an elf woman,” she declared suddenly. “She lives in a cliff in a rock in my garden.”

Despite having seen the elf only once in 15 years – enough time to determine that she was “bigger than life and dressed like my grandmother, in a 1930′s national costume” – Ms. Hakonardottir, 67, has no doubt of her existence. “My daughter once asked me, ‘How do you know where elves live?’ ” she said. “I told her you just know. It’s just a feeling.”

It is a feeling that many people in Iceland apparently share. Polls consistently show that the majority of the population either believes in elves – generally described as humanlike creatures who are fiercely protective of their rocky homes – or is not willing to rule out their existence. But while believing in elves is rooted in Iceland’s culture, it remains a touchy subject. Read more

Eating meat makes your smell less attractive

Scientific article on The Effect of Meat Consumption on Body Odor Attractiveness

“Results of repeated measures analysis of variance showed that the odor of donors when on the nonmeat diet was judged as significantly more attractive, more pleasant, and less intense.”

So let’s celebrate the veggie mojo with the Smiths! Here’s this amazing document, the Smiths from their “Meat is Murder” era interviewed by Tony Wilson (remember our previous post on celebs “trying” ayahuasca??)
