It would be normal to say that most of us have a fairly good idea that brains of Buddhist monks were functioning far beyond most humans’ capabilities and that the monks can actually rewire their brains.

It is undeniable that Buddhist monks possess superhuman powers, how they do some really incredible out-of-this-world kind of stuff continues to fascinate and show scientists what we – ‘normal human beings’ – can all do.

 Professor Herbert Benson and his team of researchers from the Harvard School Of Medicine went to remote monasteries in the Himalayan mountains in the 1980′s to discover, decode, and document the subtle ways through which the monks manipulate their bodies.


Superhuman Abilities of Himalayan Monks Shocks Harvard Scientists

It would be normal to say that most of us have a fairly good idea that brains of Buddhist monks were functioning far beyond most humans’ capabilities and that the monks can actually rewire their brains. It is undeniable that Buddhist monks possess superhuman powers, how they do some really incredible out-of-this-world kind of stuff continues to fascinate and show scientists what we – ‘normal human beings’ – can all do. Professor Herbert Benson and his team of researchers from the Harvard School Of Medicine went to remote monasteries in the Himalayan mountains in the 1980′s to discover, decode, and document the subtle ways through which the monks manipulate their bodies. The abilities that they want to discover from the monks are as follows: raising the temperatures of their fingers and toes by as much as 17 degrees, and lowering their body’s metabolic rate by up to 64% – using a stress reduction yoga technique called ‘g Tum-mo’.

Superhuman Abilities of Himalayan Monks Shocks Harvard Scientists

The Harvard research team documented monks spending a winter night – when temperatures reached zero degrees F – on a rocky ledge 15,000 feet high in the Himalayas — wearing only woolen or cotton shawls. These remarkable feats, the Harvard research team observed, were achieved by intense daily meditations, guided exercises and spiritual conditioning. They noted that:
“In a monastery in northern India, thinly clad Tibetan monks sat quietly in a room where the temperature was a chilly 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a yoga technique known as g Tum-mo, they entered a state of deep meditation. Other monks soaked 3-by-6-foot sheets in cold water (49 degrees) and placed them over the meditators’ shoulders. For untrained people, such frigid wrappings would produce uncontrolled shivering. If body temperatures continue to drop under these conditions, death can result. But it was not long before steam began rising from the sheets. As a result of body heat produced by the monks during meditation, the sheets dried in about an hour. More than 60 percent of visits to physicians in the United States are due to stress-related problems, most of which are poorly treated by drugs, surgery, or other medical procedures. If such an easy-to-master practice can bring about the remarkable changes we observe, I want to investigate what advanced forms of meditation can do to help the mind control physical processes once thought to be uncontrollable. My hope is that self-care will stand equal with medical drugs, surgery, and other therapies that are now used to alleviate mental and physical suffering. Along with nutrition and exercise, mind/body approaches can be part of self-care practices that could save millions of dollars annually in medical costs.”

It can be also noted that during 2011, Zoran Josipovic, a known research scientist and adjunct professor at New York University and a Buddhist monk himself, placed the minds and bodies of prominent Buddhist monks into functional magnetic resonance imaging or also known as (fMRI) machines to track the blood flow to their brains while they were meditating.
“The brain appears to be organized into two networks: the extrinsic network and the intrinsic, or default, network. The extrinsic portion of the brain becomes active when individuals are focused on external tasks, like playing sports or pouring a cup of coffee. The default network churns when people reflect on matters that involve themselves and their emotions. But the networks are rarely fully active at the same time. And like a seesaw, when one rises, the other one dips down. This neural set-up allows individuals to concentrate more easily on one task at any given time, without being consumed by distractions like daydreaming. Some Buddhist monks and other experienced meditators have the ability to keep both neural networks active at the same time during meditation – that is to say, they have found a way to lift both sides of the seesaw simultaneously. This ability to churn both the internal and external networks in the brain concurrently may lead the monks to experience a harmonious feeling of oneness with their environment.” - Zoran Josipovic

You might still be interested with the wonders of AREA 51 and looks like what happened recently is going to trigger our suspicious minds. A video posted online shows a family being held at gunpoint after knowingly entering into the Area 51 ‘UFO base’ in Nevada. It is common knowledge that there are many unanswered questions about the alleged UFO base, and the numerous warning signs as you approach it suggest the government do not want those questions to be answered. The signs actually tell the public to “KEEP OFF” and ground sensors leading up the base alert the military in the event that anybody gets close.
The United States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, within the Nevada Test and Training Range. According to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the correct names for the facility are Homey Airport (ICAO: KXTA) and Groom Lake, though the name Area 51 was used in a CIA document from the Vietnam War. Other names used for the facility include Dreamland,and nicknames Paradise Ranch, Home Base and Watertown. The special use airspace around the field is referred to as Restricted Area 4808 North (R-4808N) - wikipedia

According to a report from Open Minds:


A recently posted video shows a family being held at gunpoint after crossing the warning signs. Guards quickly swooped in seconds after they drove onto the grounds of the “secret” high security base. 
For many years people thought the existence of a secret base called Area 51 was a fairy tale told by UFO and alien conspiracy theorists. However, a family found out last summer that discovering just how real, and how secure, the base is can be as easy as driving a few yards past warning signs telling people to keep out. 
The video was posted on March 15, 2016 by Jeremiah Hasvold. The purpose of the video was to record a trip to Nevada by Hasvold and his son. One of the places they stopped was the gate to Area 51. In the video, Hasvold and his son visit the Extraterrestrial Highway and the “black box.” 
A stretch of Nevada highway 375 near Area 51 was renamed the “Extraterrestrial Highway” due to rumors of alien spacecraft being tested at the secretive airstrip, where the government now admits is the home to top secret aircraft development. For years the base was unacknowledged until its existence was declassified in CIA document in 2013.
Along the Extraterrestrial Highway are a couple of roads that lead to gates into the base. However, once you get about 20 miles from the base, there are signs warning visitors from proceeding any further. On the hills behind these signs, security guards in trucks watch closely.
 
In the video, Hasvold and his son stop at a location formerly known as the black box. It is where a post office box used to stand at the turnoff to the main gate to Area 51. As Hasvold mentions in the video, the box has been removed. However, tourists still stop there. 
While Hasvold and his son are visiting this spot, they meet some tourist who do not appear to speak English well. The family is intending to go to the Area 51 gate, so Hasvold and his son follow them. 
While Hasvold stops at the signs warning people to go no further, the other group decides to continue. Hasvold video tapes what happens next. 
The family that kept going is stopped by a truck only seconds after passing the signs. two guards come out of the truck, one apparently holding a camera, the other a gun. They appear to instruct the passengers of the vehicles to exit the car with their hands raised. The driver is then asked to approach the guards with his hands raised, walking backwards towards the guards. 
The video ends there and Hasvold does not provide any more information as to who the tourists were or what happened to them. In the past, visitors to the gate who have passed the signs have been fined and/or arrested. In 2014, a tour van accidentally crossed the line and faced steep fines and misdemeanor convictions. 
Trips to the gates of Area 51 are fun, and a Mecca for UFO enthusiasts, but if you do make the trip, for goodness sakes, do not pass the signs.

Time and time again, we are eager to look for the authenticity of the secret elite society, Illuminati. We discuss it in this blog and you might have seen and read a lot of things about them from different websites and portals. Well, we are now in the midst of times wherein we are getting more direct clues or hints to what this society wants to do with us. A footage of alleged Turkish Freemason rituals making some rounds over the net. It is believed to be an Illuminati ritual.


The first six minutes is a basic initiate ceremony into the masonic temple. At about the 6:00 mark you will see a second ritual, more satanic in nature. Although blurry, it says that these 33rd degree masons are drinking goat blood in honor of Satan.
