    Many people think of their eyes as operating like a movie camera – capturing everything that happens in front of them and then projecting those images back into the dark room that is the brain.
    But scientists say that metaphor isn’t accurate. Our brains don’t just watch a rolling film of everything in front of our eyes – that much information would quickly overwhelm us. Instead, neurons in the brain pick out specific signals that might be important, while other neurons take those signals and fill in the gaps.

    Asteroids are recorders of specific time periods in the history of the solar system, and the meteorites that come from those asteroids help us to understand the story," Harold Connolly Jr., the mission sample scientist for OSIRIS-REx, told the crowd gathered in the planetarium. "Rocks are storybooks to a geologist, and minerals are the pages … and it's our job to understand how these rocks were formed, when they were formed, where they come from and how they have changed since they have formed."

    Cool piece and it gave me a way to possibly describe a theory. Vortex accelerated universe. .Everything works on a vortex even a singularity. A gyre is the subatomic equivalent. Micro to macro it's the infinity symbol and because of the twist we never see the other side of the singularity in the middle. Think of yin yang as this and the photo negative universe with black and white holes corresponding to the gateway that is the super-massive singularity at the center of our universe. 3d it out and what explains why we think there is something to see on the outer around the singularity is to to a gravity distortion that creates a false mirroed effect of depth when in reality our universe is closed and the hole in the middle and we are in a bubble it produces and maintains like a cell. its the gravity that is the key to it all and that includes zero point energy. Harnessing gravtion waves can produce limitless power. however the applications are enough to keep me from thinking about it much as a Shaman,
