Half Your Brain Stands Guard When Sleeping In A New Place

Heard on All Things Considered

 

When you sleep in unfamiliar surroundings, only half your brain is getting a good night’s rest.

 

“The left side seems to be more awake than the right side,” says Yuka Sasaki, an associate professor of cognitive, linguistic and psychological sciences at Brown University.

 

The finding, reported Thursday in the journal Current Biology, helps explain why people tend to feel tired after sleeping in a new place. And it suggests people have something in common with birds and sea mammals, which frequently put half their brain to sleep while the other half remains on guard.

 

Sleep researchers discovered the “first-night effect” decades ago, when they began studying people in sleep labs. The first night in a lab, a person’s sleep is usually so bad that researchers simply toss out any data they collect…”

This 10 Year Old Boy Remembers His Past Life As A 1930’s Hollywood Actor

Thespiritscience.net

 

“This is such a mind blowing story.

 

This isn’t the first account of a child remembering their past lives – there are thousands of recorded cases of the exact same experience from kids all over the world. This caught my eye because it was an NBC newscast which I just found amazing. Enough people in the collective consciousness are interested in past lives to get it on the news.

 

This 10 year old boy from Oklahoma named Ryan, was born with the memories of his past experiences. He is able to remember vivid details of his past life, which took place in 30?s Hollywood. He says he was an actor on broadway who worked for an agency, travelled the world and was married 5 times. They were actually able to open a book and have him point to a man he says he was.

 

His mom, acting as a support, decided to take him to a child psychologist who really seemed to know what’s going on. He approached these cases with a beautifully open mind, something many professors are afraid of doing.

 

His conclusion after 50 years of the university collecting 2500 different cases of children remembering past lives is: ”These cases demand an explanation, we can’t just write them off.”…

from NEW YORK DAILY NEWS,

 

Vt. student’s body never found after 1946 disappearance

by Mara Bovsun

 

Paula Jeen Welden would be nearing 88 years old today, perhaps a great-grandmother, an artist, or a gardener who delights in taking long walks in Vermont’s Green Mountains.

 

Or, she might be in another country, under an assumed name, leading a life that bears no resemblance to her first 18 years.

 

Or, as some people believe, she may have wandered into an area that has been dubbed the “Bennington Triangle,” where she’s a captive of extraterrestrials or Bigfoot.
Or she may be dead, the victim of a serial killer.

 

All kinds of theories have swirled around the girl’s disappearance — from suicide, to accident, to eloping with a secret boyfriend, to murder — since the last time anyone saw her in 1946.

 

But the truth is, no one knows what happened to her…”
