699. Dr Persinger has taken his research a stage further. He believes naturally occurring electromagnetic fields might also be capable of generating this sensed presence. This explains, he argued, not just our sense of God but perhaps also other supernatural experiences too. (God & Religion & Brain & Magnetism & Electromagnetism) Horizon: God on the Brain, 2003
700. So Horizon decided to set Dr Persinger’s theory and machine the ultimate test. To give a religious experience to one of the world’s most strident atheists Professor Richard Dawkins. (God & Religion & Brain & Magnetism & Electrometism) ibid.
701. Despite the setback with Professor Dawkins, Dr Persinger’s research shone over a thousand human guinea-pigs has gone further than any other to establish a clear link between spiritual or religious experience and the temporal lobes of the human brain. It has put his research at the very cutting-edge of neuro-theology. (God & Religion & Brain & Magnetism & Spiritual & Electromagnetism) ibid.

128,732. Privacy and security would be next to impossible. (Telephone & Internet & Electromagnetism & Data) ibid.
128,733. Why is there such a headlong rush to connect this network? (Telephone & Internet & Electromagnetism & Data) ibid.
128,770. For the better part of a decade, two diametrically opposed sides – one that claims there is no scientific link between exposure to Wi-Fi signals and illness and another that says people suffer daily because of it – have battled on websites, in newspapers and in scientific journals. James Rubin of the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, doesn’t dispute that EHS sufferers are ill. ‘They have physical symptoms; the quality of life they have can be appalling sometimes; they’re in desperate need of help,’ he says. But his surveys of the science led him to believe exposure to electromagnetic rays is not to blame.
Others, including some professionals, disagree. ‘Ten years ago, I thought this was hokum,’ says Dr David Carpenter, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University of Albany in New York. ‘People have symptoms they want to blame on something, so they come to electromagnetic fields as the source.’ But that changed with the sheer number of people who came calling at his door, claiming their lives had been irreparably changed by electromagnetic fields. He’s now switched sides: He has a sympathetic ear and is banging the drum for those affected. EHS is real, Carpenter says, and it’s a problem. ‘The question in my mind is: How does one – in a rigorous scientific fashion – go about getting information that would be convincing to a skeptical scientific community?’ Newsweek magazine online article 26 June 2016 Chris Stokel-Walker, ‘Science Says Wi-Fi Allergies Are Fake – But People Are Still Sick’

3,229. Looking back to the instant of creation is a relatively new idea. The Big Bang theory is widely accepted. But the concept is less than a century old. But all this changed in 1929. At California’s Mount Wilson Observatory Edwin Hubble studied the light from galaxies. He observed that the farther away the galaxy, the longer the wave-lengths of light it emits ... If a galaxy is moving away from us, its light-waves stretch, becoming longer and redder. It’s called red-shifting ... Nearly all galaxies are receding from us at a million miles an hour ... The universe is expanding outward from a single point ... Out of the fireball, the four fundamental forces of nature formed. These forces underpin everything around us. Gravity is the reason stars and planets formed ... Electromagnetism lights our cities, runs our phones and connects our computers. And the two nuclear forces, strong and weak, bind the particles that make up our bodies and power the furnace of our sun ... Without them the universe would be a featureless fog of radiation ... How was mass developed in the first second of the Big Bang? (Big Bang & Universe & Galaxy & Gravity & Electromagnetism & Nuclear) Big Bang
