September 16, 2015 – Darwin’s Dilemma

Ancient History, Geology, History, Science No Comments »

S_726_1

Join us Wednesday September 16,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “Darwin’s Dilemma presented by Jim Patterson.

The Cambrian explosion was one of the most spectacular events in the history of life. In a short window of geological time an abundance of new animals – and new animal body designs – arose fully formed without evidence of any evolutionary ancestors.

Charles Darwin viewed this as an inexplicable mystery. He had envisioned the evolution of life through a multitude of small, undirected steps. Yet, the fossil record reveals no such pattern of gradual development. Instead, early in the Cambrian period, compound eyes, articulated limbs, sophisticated sensory organs and skeletons burst into existence seemingly out of nowhere.

Darwin’s Dilemma explores the Cambrian explosion and the scientific controversy that still surrounds it. Where are the missing transitional forms that Darwin’s theory requires? Can any undirected evolutionary process explain the origin of animals?

Filmed on four continents, this fascinating 70-minute documentary examines some of the most important fossil discoveries ever made and with them, a mystery deeper than Darwin ever imagine. For the Cambrian explosion of life was actually an explosion of biological information – assembly instructions in DNA and embryonic blueprints that directed the development of the first complex animals.

Judge for yourself if the actual evidence truly points to evolution as we’re expected to accept as definitive scientific fact….or whether something more may be involved.  Jim will present additional discussion points and we’ll engage in a lively conversation afterwards.

July 1, 2015 – Nikola Tesla: The Genius Who Lit the World

Free Energy, Science No Comments »

Nikola Tesla

NOTE: Effective July 2015 we are moving our meetings to occur on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. Our next meeting, therefore, will be Weds, July 1.

Join us Wednesday July 1,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “Nikola Tesla: The Genius Who Lit the World presented by Jim Patterson.

This program reveals the discoveries of a forgotten genius, many of which went virtually unnoticed for nearly a century. Nikola Tesla is considered the father of our modern technological age and one of the most mysterious and controversial scientists in history. How did this obscure visionary from what is now Yugoslavia lay the foundation for modern communications and energy research? Nikola Tesla’s contributions to science and technology include the invention of radio, television, radio-astronomy, remote control and robotics, radar, medical x-ray and the wireless transmission of electricity. Many of Nikola Tesla’s inventions were and in some cases still are considered a little too revolutionary by government agencies and the power brokers of the time and are discussed in detail in this program.

Encyclopedia Britannica lists Nikola Tesla as one of the top ten most fascinating people in history. So why is he virtually unknown to the general public? This program is a penetrating study of the life and mind of a “scientific superman” who, against all odds, dedicated his life to the task of designing and improving technology for the service and advancement of humanity.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.

June 10, 2015 – The Fourth Phase of Water

Consciousness, Science, Water No Comments »

Fourth Phase of Water Image

Join us Wednesday June 10,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “The Fourth Phase of Water presented by Bob Hartye.

Water has demonstrated an ability to retain a memory or imprint not only of most physical substances it contacts, but also sound, electromagnetic radiation (light), thoughts, emotions and subtle energy (chi). Conventional science, which has been unable to explain many of water’s normally observed properties, doesn’t even try to address the memory phenomena.

However recent discoveries by a few pioneer scientists of a 4th phase of water, a liquid crystalline state, provide a good start to understanding its amazing properties.

In this presentation we will look at a few cases demonstrating water memory and then see how water’s crystalline state was observed in the lab and what has been learned about its structure and properties. The results so far not only go a long way to explaining how water forms its memory but also reveals how water is converting the sun’s energy into the other forms of energy required to sustain all life on this planet. There are already several opportunities emerging from this work which can significantly improve our health and quality of life.

(Following our new LES guidelines, this presentation will be shorter and more layman friendly and there will be time at the end for questions or sharing water experiences.)

All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.

April 8, 2015 – How Our Thoughts Undermine Our Health

Belief, Health, Psychology, Science, Thought No Comments »

einstein_thinking

Join us Wednesday April 8,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “Thinking Our Way to Sickness, Pain and Death: How Our Thoughts Undermine Our Health”
Presented by Professor Keith Lyle.

Many people view sickness, pain, and death as inevitable biological phenomena that occur quite independently of what we might think about them.  But psychological research challenges that notion and reveals surprising links between mind and health.  In this talk, Professor Lyle will describe those links and discuss the many ways our health might benefit from the proper mindset.

Keith received his PhD in Psychology from Yale University in 2005.  He’s currently an Associate Professor of Psychological and Brain Processes at the University of Louisville, where he teaches courses on Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Processes, and Human Memory. His research interests include memory enhancement and eyewitness memory.  He also studies personality, with an emphasis on authoritarianism and mental flexibility.

Keith joined LES back in 2011 for a fascinating presentation and discussion. At that time, he shared with us the results of some precognition experiments he had conducted at U of L’s psych lab, based on the experiments designed by Daryl J. Bem – Psychology Professor Emeritus at Cornell University. Professor Bem reported in late 2010 that his experiments had scientifically proven for the first time the existence of precognition. More recently Keith has become interested in studying the connection of how our thoughts directly impact our health,  and will share with us some of the conclusions being reached by both himself and other researchers in this field. He will also share some information on the  correct mindset that may benefit our health.

Please join LES as we welcome Professor Keith Lyle for another fascinating presentation and discussion.

Special Interest Group (SIG) – Wednesday October 29, 2014: COSMOS & Halloween Celebration

Ancient History, Cosmology, Geology, Science, Uncategorized No Comments »

Wednesday, October 29, @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

pale blue dot

NOTE: This group does NOT replace our regularly scheduled 2nd and 4th Wednesday presentation meetings. For more information on SIGs, please check out the SIG link.

This SIG is FREE for all Pre-Paid LES Members! Others are invited to attend for $5 per meeting to help cover the cost of food and drink. All are welcome! (On the menu: Vegetable Soup, Cornbread, Apple Cider and Halloween Treats.) Halloween costumes are optional, but welcome and will certainly add to the fun!!

In our final COSMOS SIG we’ll learn more about the planet Venus. Venus, known as Aphrodite in Greek Mythology, was regarded as the Goddess of Love. Roman mythology also regarded Venus as the Mother of Rome. Venus is sometimes referred to as Earth’s sister.  We know more about Venus than our ancient counterparts and we know that Venus is very different from Earth. In the first episode we’ll learn about some of those differences and how some are attributable to our home planet’s ability breathe. Yes, the Earth does breathe!!

In the second episode we’ll hear about one of the greatest human accomplishments, The Library at Alexandria. Construction began in the 3rd century BC and the Library flourished until 391 AD. So much knowledge that had been carefully gathered over centuries was lost when the Library was destroyed. Some of that knowledge has been rediscovered in the centuries since, but still we  must wonder at what was lost that may never be known again. The final episode includes some new information and  a brief look back at some of the people and topics covered in previous episodes. The series is beautifully and appropriately concluded with Carl Sagan’s “The Pale Blue Dot.”

Because each episode stands on its own with different subject matter, it’s not necessary to see all the episodes to follow the series. But, each episode is packed with information and all episodes are beautifully done and entertaining, so attend all if you can.

Note:  This is the final COSMOS SIG meeting. Hope all of you have enjoyed it!

We’ll have a greeter at the front door till 6:05. After that, late entrants may call the phone number posted on the door for admittance. Hope to see you there!!

For additional information about the COSMOS SIG, please refer to the the August 5th post announcing the SIG.

 relief_depicting_gilgamesh_tell Halaf Syria - Copy

NOTE: This group does NOT replace our regularly scheduled 2nd and 4th Wednesday presentation meetings. For more information on SIGs, please check out the SIG link.

This SIG is FREE for all Pre-Paid LES Members! Others are invited to attend for $5 per meeting to help cover the cost of food and drink. All are welcome! (On the menu: Variety of appetizers including baked brie, artichoke dip, cheese and crackers.)

In our fifth COSMOS SIG meeting we’ll travel to Nova Scotia to learn about the Permian world, and to Siberia to learn about the causes of the “Great Dying” – the extinction that was “…the closest life on Earth has ever come to annihilation…9 out of ten of all species of plants and animals died off.” As we learn about the distant past, we come to realize that “we’re a species of amnesiacs  trying to learn who we were and what happened before we awakened.” Once more we’ll learn about some of the people who contributed to our awakening, people like Alfred Wegener and Maria Tharp.

In the second episode we’ll learn about the civilization of Uruk (now Iraq) where the concept of a city was developed; and about the Akkadian Princess, Enheduana, the first person in recorded history to sign her name to a written work. Enheduana dreamed of immortality as did Gilgamesh, whose epic story of heroism has been retold as many of the stories that reside in the Bible. Noah’s Ark is an example of a story first told by Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh,  dreamed of immortality and he lives on today thru his epic writing. We’ll learn about the possibility of real arks that may have delivered life to Earth.  We’ll hear several theories about how life on this planet may have originated – including the possibility that life came to Earth from Mars, Venus or some distant star system. We’ll hear how the Nakhla Meteorite supports that theory. We’ll  see old newsreels from 1946 about Project Diana – when Earth sent its first message into interstellar space. Finally, we’ll consider our current responsibility to ensure that human life continues long after our beloved Earth is no longer habitable.

Because each episode stands on its own with different subject matter, it’s not necessary to see all the episodes to follow the series. But, each episode is packed with information and all episodes are beautifully done and entertaining, so attend all if you can.

Note:  The final episodes COSMOS SIG meetings will take place on Wed., October 15; and Wed., October 29 from 6:00 – 8:30 PM.

We’ll have a greeter at the front door till 6:05. After that, late entrants may call the phone number posted on the door for admittance. Hope to see you there!!

NOTE: This group does NOT replace our regularly scheduled 2nd and 4th Wednesday presentation meetings. For more information on SIGs, please check out the SIG link.

This SIG is FREE for all Pre-Paid LES Members! Others are invited to attend for $5 per meeting to help cover the cost of food and drink. All are welcome! (On the menu: Pizza!)

In our fourth COSMOS SIG meeting we’ll learn how astrophysicists determine the make up, the age and the eventual fate of  the stars we see in our night sky. You may be surprised when you learn who developed the method for doing so and how the method at first flew in the face of conventional scientific evidence. But, science must eventually accept carefully gathered evidence, and as the author of what is regarded the the most brilliant PhD thesis ever written written in astronomy wrote, “If you are sure of your facts, you should defend your position.” We’ll hear several legends about the Pleiades, also known as the Seven Sisters. We’ll also hear about the Carina Nebula and Eta Carinae which may go hypernova in our lifetimes!! The Universe wastes nothing – stars to dust and dust to stars – the ultimate reincarnation!!

In the second episode we’ll learn about the life of another genius who transformed our world, a child born into poverty with a speech impediment. After being treated cruelly by a teacher as a small boy because of this impediment,  he never returned to school. But genius combined with hard work and passion can overcome poverty and cruelty as it did in Michael Faraday’s life. His life, work and discoveries started a revolution and changed the course of all our lives. Faraday did something else. He made science accessible to those of us, young and old, who don’t possess his genius. His tradition of doing so has continued since. This episode also points to the importance of partnerships in life and especially in accomplishing major breakthroughs. John Donne wrote, “…No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main…”  The best partnerships are the ones where the weaknesses of one are bolstered by the strengths of the other. Such was the partnership between Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell.

Because each episode stands on its own with different subject matter, it’s not necessary to see all the episodes to follow the series. But, each episode is packed with information and all episodes are beautifully done and entertaining, so attend all if you can.

Note:  The final three COSMOS SIG meetings will take place on Wed., October 1; Wed., October 15; and Wed., October 29 from 6:00 – 8:30 PM.

We’ll have a greeter at the front door till 6:05. After that, late entrants may call the phone number posted on the door for admittance. Hope to see you there!!

NOTE: This group does NOT replace our regularly scheduled 2nd and 4th Wednesday presentation meetings. For more information on SIGs, please check out the SIG link.

This SIG is FREE for all Pre-Paid LES Members! Others are invited to attend for $5 per meeting to help cover the cost of food and drink. All are welcome! (On the menu: Pasta salad with almonds and sun dried tomatoes, bread and butter, and cheesecake!)

In our third COSMOS SIG meeting we’ll learn about a tiny creature who has survived all the previous mass extinctions on Earth, and who outnumber humans a billion to one –  the tardigrades. We’ll also hear about a secret the plants know that science is still trying to understand.  Mastering that secret would totally eliminate the need for any other fuel to power the entire planet! We’ll hear about how the ancient Greek philosophers, Thales and Democritus, helped to change the worldview of  government, God and our place in the universe. We’ll also visit a very strange place deep underground, Super-Kamioka.

In the second episode we’ll learn about a conspiracy “…one of the first times that the authority of science was used  to cloak a threat to public health…”  This conspiracy threatened the well-being of both humans and other living creatures who share our planet. Behind the conspiracy were some unscrupulous and powerful people motivated by something other than the search for truth.  Some truths can be revealed only through years of painstaking research and data collection.  Less scrupulous people sometimes manipulate that data and spin it so that the end result represents something other than the truth.  The conspiracy failed thanks to an unwavering scientist, named Clair Patterson, and those who supported and encouraged his work.  Patterson waged a twenty-year fight against those misinterpretations – and, in this case truth prevailed!  We’re all victors in Patterson’s victory.

Because each episode stands on its own with different subject matter, it’s not necessary to see all the episodes to follow the series. But, each episode is packed with information and all episodes are beautifully done and entertaining, so attend all if you can.
