Are you addicted to Internet?

Saturday, September 1, 2012 @ 06:09 PM
Dr Ioannis Syrigos

Internet Addiction (IAD) is becoming more and more of a problem lately.

What we mean by IAD? Internet overuse or pathological computer use or overdoing it in general with your computer and/or internet. Nowadays more and more people choose to spend more time on Facebook, or web surfing or emailing rather than directly communicating with people, exercising their body, or doing other more productive activities like going for walks, reading books, doing something creative, having a non-computer hobby, going out with friends etc.

Stem cells are amazing cells that can self-renew and can differentiate into many different kind of specialized cells. This last feature is of embryonic cells. The same cells can create a heart, lungs, liver and all different parts of the body. But at some point the embryonic cells just cease to exist.

Latest Mars Photos

Curiosity has successfully landed on Mars a few days ago and has already started sending pictures back to Earth.

Of course conspiracy theories and ufologists got the opportunity to develop new theories. Fingers were found on the ground, UFOs on the sky and who knows what else they will come up with.

Solar flares, is it a threat?

We approach a period of intense solar activity. Many things have been said and have been related to doomsday prophecies, but let’s see the scientific side of things for a moment.

What a solar flare is? It is an energy release that takes place on the surface of the sun that emits huge amounts of energy (it can be trillions of equivalent TNT explosions). Usually after a solar flare a coronal mass ejection follows (a massive burst of solar wind and magnetic fields rising above the solar corona and released into space).  And that is something that could potentially affect earth.

All those clouds of electrons, ions and atoms are thrown into space with a speed close to the speed of light.

Neuroscience, the science of the future

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 @ 12:08 PM
Dr Ioannis Syrigos

It is an extremely important science, and in my opinion, one of the sciences of the future. Its purpose is the understanding of the nervous system and for that it collaborates with many other fields to achieve its goal (biology, mathematics, philosophy, physics, computers etc).

The human nervous system is super active and receptive to thousands of information every minute. All this information is organized in our brains and through the process of perception, we create our reality. To be exact, we create our own reality. Because the way we perceive things is based mostly on what we have learned, taught, studies, experienced. No wonder why unity among people doesn’t exist.

An Investigation into Out-of-Body Experiences

Sunday, March 7, 2010 @ 09:03 AM
Dr Ioannis Syrigos


What has always been fascinating to me are the books and texts about unimaginable spiritual things, written through experience, but without a well-defined source of where this information came from. If we look carefully, we can see that there have only really been a small number of these books throughout the history of mankind. On the other hand we have myriads of books that are discussions, ideas or studies about the things that these books have spoken of; some which contain brilliant theories and concepts. However, when you begin to read them, you can very easily see the difference between the first kind of books and the latter kind. The original ones touch you in a completely different way, I would say in a spiritual way, a deep touch in your heart, talking to your consciousness in a way that you cannot explain.
