The Taos Hum

We are not 'Alone' 

Some residents and visitors in the small city of
Taos, New Mexico, have for years been annoyed and puzzled by a mysterious and faint low-frequency hum in the desert air. 

Oddly, only about 2 percent of
Taos residents report hearing the sound. Some believe it is caused by unusual acoustics; others suspect mass hysteria or some secret, sinister purpose. Whether described as a whir, hum, or buzz and whether psychological, natural, or extraterrestrial no one has yet been able to locate the sound's origin.

Smart Cars

Future Smart Cars Would Prevent Accidents

Researchers have set out to make cars far smarter than today’s models—especially when it comes to dealing with their twitchy, tweaky, all-too-human drivers. 



The project is starting out at Sandia National Laboratories outside
Albuquerque, NM, with funding by the Pentagon and a major auto maker it declined to name. The work could have military applications, for moving troops and equipment.

The Connection

The Body/Mind Connection

Science is powerful, but it cannot explain everything yet.

Medical science is only beginning to understand the ways in which the mind influences the body. 

The placebo effect, for example, demonstrates that people can at times cause a relief in medical symptoms or suffering by believing the cures to be effective - whether they actually are or not. 


Using processes only poorly understood, the body's ability to heal itself is far more amazing than anything modern medicine could create
