You can't hear much at all with your ears, apart from wind, when your head is out in the fresh air doing 100 or so knots.

During WW2 my father was on his 24th. bombing operation over Yugoslavia. He was the navigator. The aircraft had been hit and was going to crash, hence a requirement to bail out. As he went through the small hatch in the cockpit floor his parachute webbing caught on the door and it slammed shut with him hanging underneath the aircraft. He said "A voice said to me 'Don't pull the chord'.&qu

Oh dear, one or two of you aren't going to like this. Maybe Homo Sapiens has very little basic ability beyond that of any other animal, namely to survive and reproduce. Could almost all the rest come from an external mind or minds? Maybe God (or gods) does play dice, and maybe many far more complicated games than that. I like to think that we each have a higher self who looks after us, t

On musical composition, there was recently a programme on Rod Stewart. In it he talked about a block he had on composing songs which lasted for about 16 years. This ability then suddenly started again and he was waking in the night and 'having' to write down the numerous compositions which were 'coming through'. He actually wondered where from.

Just what is it? We seem, as a species, to be having rather a problem working out what it is. We seem to be getting some idea of where it is, at least. It would appear to be immensely strong but quite untouchable. Remind you of anything? The only thing I can work it out to be, assuming that is that it is something we understand, is MIND! Oh my gosh. Could the Ancients have given up tryin

I suspect that UFO's are a visible sign of the border between our part of the universe and the main part of the universe which we dismiss as dark matter and probably of no real consequence. I further suspect that that universe is heaving with intelligence which is in large part responsible for our scientific development. Large sections of science have come in dreams and I think we are probably

Then again, in the last few days I read scientific speculation that dark matter, i.e. the Dark Universe, may have existed prior to the big bang. From my earlier speculation this leads to the possible conclusion that our universe was created by intelligence from the already existent Dark Universe, which might make us something along the lines of what we would call a virtual reality. Oh no! Even

I recently read an article from an American University, unfortunately I don't remember which one. It suggested that the most accurate way of describing certain mental processes was if the thought occurred and then everything ceased for a period before the response. This sounds rather like a digital process. A bit like our receiving and watching one television channel out of the 500odd being trans

One way or another a hell of a lot of the Universe is missing. For the sake of argument lets say 95%. It may be less, it may be more but that's a very convenient working figure. I shall call the missing "bit" the Dark Universe. An appropriate name for a number of reasons. That 95% is the "real" universe. Being that much in the majority it has to be. This dark universe has p

No response huh? Well, here goes. As the stars aren’t flying apart in each galaxy there must be at least 8 times as much matter as we can see. Dark Matter. If string theory is correct there are eleven dimensions. At least 8 times as much as we can see. Whatever the reason, or amount, there’s a hell of a lot missing. Logic therefore dictates that the “missing” matter/ energy/ “whatever it is”

So there was this mind, or minds, evolving over countless ages, acquiring knowledge but unable to do one thing that it wished as it did not possess any matter. Manipulate the matter in the most 'solid' part of existence. Then one creature started evolving in that area that showed promise. There was a way of entering it's mind, manipulating that mind and keeping a record of all it's thoughts an

I agree it should be moved to Inner Space. I started it here because I wished to make the point about the real universe but I have now digressed sufficiently to warrant the change.

So why should the 'real' universe trigger so many religions in our universe? Possibly they wanted to keep most of the brightest minds in our universe occupied doing something which kept them away from discovering and debating the real truth. Outrageous! But it worked for many centuries.

I had wondered about starting this topic in Inner Space but eventually decided against. It really is halfway between the two so could be included in either. I hoped it might just start one qualified person to consider the possibility of the universe I have postulated. It is, after all, quite a bit simpler than the infinite number of universes being put forward by many highly qualified scien

No, I was trying to ignore you. Any preconceived ideas on a subject such as this are purely a nuisance. Since you disagree with the majority of current scientific thinking I suggest you start your own topic to discuss it. Good luck

I agree that this suggestion is quite outrageous but it is the only one I have ever found which explains all of life's apparent mysteries; all the subjects banned under this section of GHMB, and a few others. Apparent miracles and ancient massive structures among them.

There has recently been some discussion of the fact that a number of composers have woken with complete songs in their mind and have had to get them written down before they forgot them. These are often accompanied with a comment along the lines of "Isn't the subconscious mind a wonderful thing?" Surprisingly the accompanying comment is never along the lines of "I wonder who c

Science has been striving, most successfully, towards the truth. Having now found it there seems a great reluctance to take the final step. 95% of the universe is missing apparently. I am reminded of the discovery of DNA when only a small percentage of its purpose had been found. So the rest was dubbed Rubbish DNA. Arrogance indeed. Can I suggest that the missing 95% IS the universe. W

Science really is pretty good at working out how "our" universe works. It has been so good that it has worked out that "our" universe is only 5% of all that is. Or possibly 15% or some other figure yet to be precisely determined. Religion is our best attempt to figure out how the other 95% and its connection to our 5% works.

Or possibly it's just that we happen to be the species which developed enough for our higher selves to be tempted to enter part of themselves to experience living in our very restricted section of the universe. That would explain a few things which don't appear to fit the usual model.

Since 96% of the universe is missing it would seem only reasonable to assume that that 96% IS the universe and we are just the extraneous bit hanging on the side (or end, or edge)

Not yet going back to explain my thinking but proceeding forward. Where the hell is 95+% of the universe hiding. I read an article recently which suggested that the way part of the brain worked is best explained by a model which had an event occurring and then absolutely nothing for a period of time and then the response. Sounds digital to me. Think of one TV Channel among hundreds being si

OK boys and girls, Lets explain the lot, aliens, UFO's, ghosts, reincarnation, the lot. All that we know exists, stars, planets, dust, us adds up to about 4.5% of the total energy and matter that exists. Scientists call it the baryonic universe. Which leaves the other 95.5 (ish) per cent. Logic dictates that that IS the universe and that we are just the attachment on the end. I'll call it t

I have been considering the answers and what I should or should not abandon when along comes this lovely article in Science Daily. www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/04/160412160346.htm It suggests that "consciousness arises only in time intervals of up to 400 milliseconds, with gaps of unconsciousness in between." Since it is consciousness which we use to consider the universe

With 96% of what we have, thus far, considered the universe missing I feel it is only reasonable to consider that that 96% is the universe and to apply a bit of thought to what might be the nature of and reason for our little bit. Are we a ‘virtual reality?’ Or are we a hologram? If either there must have been and might still be a creator or creators. Even more interestingly are we just cre

It comes from the occasional (or,indeed not so occasional) contacts and subsequent misinterpretations of those contacts with the real universe. Science has now found the real universe and named it either dark matter or dark energy. It consist of around 95% of all that is. Whilst the analogy is inaccurate you might view our 5% as what we might call a virtual reality. Some are suggesting it is a
