Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Walter Schemp (one of the key creators of fMRI technology) and others are describing a process in nature they call the quantum hologram (QH) which has opened a new field of science, “quantum holography.” In their description, all animate and inanimate objects in nature are emitting radiation as groups of photons–which they call quantum holograms—that contain information about the life history of the objects emitting them. You can find the details of this work at the website of the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Encounters, www.experiencer.org.Read More.

Dandelion, both leaves and roots, whether grown wild or cultivated, is full of medicinal benefits. The greens can be chopped into salad, cooked like spinach, or added to juicing, while the root form can be used to make an infusion/tea or extract. Pamela Ovadje, a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Windsor, has done extensive work in investigating the anti-cancer properties of dandelions and other natural extracts. She found that an extract of dandelions can cause apoptosis, or cell death, among cancerous cells while not harming the healthy ones.Read More.
Here in the Northeast, we have had a rocky spring with the temps swinging from beach weather to rainy, cool November type days.
