Massive ‘anomaly’ lurks beneath ice in Antarctica

Scientists believe a massive object that could change our understanding of history is hidden beneath the Antarctic ice.
The huge and mysterious “anomaly” is thought to be lurking beneath the frozen wastes of an area called Wilkes Land. The area is 151 miles across and has a minimum depth of about 2,700 feet.
Some researchers believe it is the remains of a truly massive asteroid more than twice the size of the Chicxulub space rock that wiped out the dinosaurs.
If this explanation is true, it could mean this killer asteroid caused the Permian-Triassic extinction event, which killed 96 percent of Earth’s sea creatures and up to 70 percent of the vertebrate organisms living on land.
However, the wilder minds of the internet have come up with their own theories, with some conspiracy theorists claiming it could be a massive UFO base or a portal to a mysterious underworld called the Hollow Earth.
This “Wilkes Land gravity anomaly” was first uncovered in 2006, when NASA satellites spotted gravitational changes which indicated the presence of a huge object sitting in the middle of a 300-mile-wide impact crater.
Now the internet has lit up with discussions of the mysterious observations after the UFO-hunting crew Secure Team 10 posted a YouTube video about the anomaly.
No, we probably don’t live in a computer simulation
Wednesday, March 15, 2017
According to Nick Bostrom of the Future of Humanity Institute, it is likely that we live in a computer simulation. And one of our biggest existential risks is that the superintelligence running our simulation shuts it down.
The simulation hypothesis, as it’s called, enjoys a certain popularity among people who like to think of themselves as intellectual, believing it speaks for their mental flexibility. Unfortunately it primarily speaks for their lacking knowledge of physics.
Among physicists, the simulation hypothesis is not popular and that’s for a good reason – we know that it is difficult to find consistent explanations for our observations. After all, finding consistent explanations is what we get paid to do.
Proclaiming that “the programmer did it” doesn’t only not explain anything – it teleports us back to the age of mythology. The simulation hypothesis annoys me because it intrudes on the terrain of physicists. It’s a bold claim about the laws of nature that however doesn’t pay any attention to what we know about the laws of nature.
First, to get it out of the way, there’s a trivial way in which the simulation hypothesis is correct: You could just interpret the presently accepted theories to mean that our universe computes the laws of nature. Then it’s tautologically true that we live in a computer simulation. It’s also a meaningless statement.
A stricter way to speak of the computational universe is to make more precise what is meant by ‘computing.’ You could say, for example, that the universe is made of bits and an algorithm encodes an ordered time-series which is executed on these bits. Good – but already we’re deep in the realm of physics.
If you try to build the universe from classical bits, you won’t get quantum effects, so forget about this – it doesn’t work. This might be somebody’s universe, maybe, but not ours. You either have to overthrow quantum mechanics (good luck), or you have to use qubits. [Note added for clarity: You might be able to get quantum mechanics from a classical, nonlocal approach, but nobody knows how to get quantum field theory from that.]
Even from qubits, however, nobody’s been able to recover the presently accepted fundamental theories – general relativity and the standard model of particle physics. The best attempt to date is that by Xiao-Gang Wen and collaborators, but they are still far away from getting back general relativity. It’s not easy.

From all the comments in this post, I am considering making a pdf that tells you what are the top 3-5 safest products to use for every category (soap, cleaner, shampoo, lip gloss, etc…). Before I spend the time and money to make it I want to see if there is interest. If you want something like that, just comment “yes please”. If I get more than 100 yeses, I’ll spend the time and money to make it.
Then I’ll post it for Free for everyone 🙂
[UPDATE] Ok, so keep the yesses coming! We are definitely making a resource guide available for everyone! I want to make sure everyone that wants it gets it.
So, HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO TO MAKE SURE YOU GET THE PDF!
The pdf will take my staff at least 10-14 days to put together. I want it to be complete and easy to use. I think by then, if I simply post it, most of the people will not see it because facebook may not notify you of any updates because it will be an old post (won’t show on your wall). I want to make sure everyone who wants a copy GETS it. So I figured the only way to make this happen.
Please carefully follow the steps below.
Just PRIVATE MESSAGE me at https://m.me/bodySolutionsinc?ref=w30829
and ask for the pdf there. It’s the only guarantee you will get it as I will send it through the FB messenger.
HELP! if you know of any companies especially company owners, tag them in the comments. We want to connect with the companies that are doing good things for parents and kids to raise more money for legal reform.
‘Clean Meat’ from Self-Reproducing Cells Used to Make Lab-Grown Chicken Strips
Bay Area food tech startup Memphis Meats offered samples of their “clean meat” to adventurous taste-testers in San Francisco this Tuesday.
The chicken strips are grown directly from self-reproducing chicken cells in a laboratory vat, but those who tried it said that it was nearly indistinguishable from the real thing. That’s good news for the meat industry, as the cost of meeting our country’s ever-increasing demand continues to rise.
Companies like Tyson and Hormel have taken note, with the former having formed a venture capital fund in December for investment into this new frontier of meat mass production.
With the average U.S. citizen consuming over 90 lbs. of chicken last year alone, the demand for a more effective means of feeding all of those mouths has never been greater. About 61 billion chickens are being raised around the world for their meat, and the numbers continue to skyrocket.
The development of animal-less meat products is also good news for organizations like PETA, whose president Ingrid Newkirk said that they are “very much in favor of anything that reduces or eliminates the slaughterhouse.” PETA has contributed funds to early research in what many hope will be a way to reduce or eliminate the mistreatment of livestock.
