A polariton filter turns ordinary laser light into quantum light – A Spiritual Insight

The quantum theory of light states “there is a Wave-Particle Duality of Light. Quantum theory tells us that both light and matter consists of tiny particles which have wavelike properties associated with them. Light is composed of particles called photons, and matter is composed of particles called electrons, protons, neutrons.” Therefore, the idea that is provided in the title...

The Recyclability of a New Kind of Plastic – A Spiritual Insight

Researchers are working on new novel ways to deal with plastic waste and one of these methods is by developing a new kind of plastic. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a new kind of plastic called poly(diketoenamine) (PDK) which can be disassembled at a molecular level and then reassembled to take...

Cooling without energy consumption – A Spiritual Insight

This is a fascinating topic because of what the heading of this article suggests is something that runs counter to the laws of thermodynamics on heat transfer. There are three basic ways in which heat is transferred. Before we discuss the scientific findings, we need to define a few terms. In fluids, heat is often transferred by...

Physicists Have Found an Entirely New Type of Superconductivity – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video Here What is superconductivity? Superconductivity is the property of zero electrical resistance in some substances at very low absolute temperatures. The problem statement is when we flow electrical current through a wire, the electrical resistance in the metallic conductor leads to electrical losses that are manifested as heat. An easy demonstration of this concept is to flow a...

New DNA ‘shredder’ technique goes beyond CRISPR’s scissors – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video Here "CRISPR" is shorthand notation for "CRISPR-Cas9." The idea behind CRISPRs are specialized stretches of DNA where the protein Cas9 (or "CRISPR-associated") is an enzyme that acts like a pair of molecular scissors, capable of cutting strands of DNA. In the last 6 years there has been a lot of press on...

Natural Language Processing – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video Here There is a field of research called Natural language processing (NLP) which is a subfield of computer science, information engineering, and artificial intelligence that is concerned with the human-machine interface via languages. In particular, how computers process and analyze large amounts of natural language data. Natural Language processing is the use...

The weapons of warfare in the spiritual realm – The Pentagon Wants to Make an Army of Insects – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video here Dr. Blake Bextine with the Defense Advanced Research Projects agency (DARPA, https://www.darpa.mil/program/insect-allies) reports researchers thinking of ways to protect the U.S. crop ecosystem in the event of natural and engineered threats to the home grown U.S food supply. Threats such as pathogens, drought, flooding, and frost. The objective these researchers are...

A quantum experiment suggests there’s no such thing as objective reality and how this applies to the Bible – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video here Back in 1961 a physicist Eugene Wigner wrote a thought experiment that demonstrated a paradox of quantum mechanics. The thought experiment demonstrated how two observers would be able to experience different realities. Back in 1961, it was not possible to test his thought experiment.  Today however, the recent development of quantum technologies have made it possible to...

Night-vision ‘super-mice’ created using light-converting nanoparticles – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video Here A recent publication in the journal Nature titled “Night-vision ‘super-mice’ created using light-converting nanoparticles” (Nature 567, 16-17 (2019)) highlights how scientists engineered mice to see in the infrared region as normally as mammals see visible light. Scientists achieved this by injecting rodent eyes with nanoparticles that bind to the photoreceptors in...

WHAT IS A SPIRITUAL INSIGHT?

Religion affects everything in our lives from the nature of reality, what we believe to be true, to moral and ethical behaviors. There is great value in the philosophical debate of the frontiers of science as well as in deepening our understanding of the impact our religious beliefs have on our day to day lives. For many...

Physicists set world record in tabletop plasma acceleration with laser drill – A Spiritual Insight

In a 2019 publication, in Physical Review Letters, researchers have achieved the highest energy yet recorded using what they call a “plasma wakefield accelerator.” We know today particle accelerators can speed up subatomic particles almost to the speed of light and then smash them together. The resulting data is used to understand the creation and destruction of new...

A new chemical process could turn a quarter of our plastic waste into clean fuel – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video here There is a brand new publication (2019) titled “Use of Supercritical Water for the Liquefaction of Polypropylene into Oil” that details a technique to turn nearly a quarter of our plastic waste into fuel (gasoline and diesel-like fuel).

What Existed before the Universe?

Watch Video here According to the Big Bang Theory, the universe is roughly 13.7 billion years old, and all of the matter in the cosmos existed in a form smaller than a subatomic particle. This is what is known as the universe having existed at this moment in time as a “singularity.” In physics and mathematics, a singularity is a...

Serviceable Lithium-ion Batteries – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video here Recently I read an article concerning lithium-ion batteries and the issue of environmental protection.  If one of the battery cells or components break down, the whole battery pack stops working and is discarded. This problem is the result of the throw-away nature of the battery, the design is not for serviceability and so all of the parts...
