Andrea -Allow me to introduce Bryan Smith, our new news editor. In classic Mercury Retrograde style, there’s been a glitch in the works with his ability to be on the internet. We’ll see if this can be solved in time for another Roundup from him tomorrow. In any case, this is the debut post he’s prepared for us with the current news. Welcome, Bryan!
Here is a truly fascinating piece about a study done by scientists from MIT, Carnegie Melon, and Union College. Their findings show that just as we have individual intelligence, we also have group intelligence, or as we would call it, a collective consciousness. They’ve found particular traits that help a group of individuals work more cohesively, primarily what they’re calling “social sensitivity.”
Social Sensitivity, as defined by these scientists, is the ability to read someone’s mind through social cues, like subtle facial expressions or vocal inflections. Sounds a lot like intuition, and we know that intuition is a female-minded trait, and wouldn’t you know, that’s exactly what this study concluded. Teams with more women functioned better.
Astronomers have finally observed a fast radio burst happening live. Since 2007, astronomers have been trying to explain this phenomenon, when a milliseconds long burst of radio waves shows up out of nowhere, seemingly from outside of our galaxy. Though there are plenty of theories floating around and not one has been generally accepted, I’m going to go ahead and say they’re signals from other beings outside our galaxy. Do I have any evidence of this? Absolutely not. However, I’m also including an article from May of last year explaining more about these intriguing signals.
Remember those booms that have been heard all over the planet for the past few years? If you haven’t, I highly recommend looking it up on youtube. Just do a search for sky noises, sky booms, even sky trumpets. I was going to post some, but there are far too many. I’ve been following them since 2012 and have heard plenty of theories. This latest one, as we seem to be on an up-tick of these booms, is calling them “ice booms.” Ice expands in the cold, creating pressure that builds up which finally releases, cracking the ice and making a loud boom sound. But these sounds have been heard for years, in different seasons and different locations. Matthew Day of the National Weather Service doesn’t buy the ice theory, either.
What are these sounds? I couldn’t tell you. Though we have been told in the past, even though the galactics’ ships don’t normally make sound, they are at times allowed to do so for the purpose of getting people to look up at the sky.
