PBS Spacetime

This has been my headache-inducing fascination of late. :lol:

Watching it brought up a question about the theory of space folding. Viability of the whole idea aside (That's a whole other can of worms to debate), theoretically, I'm seeing what might be a problem if it were possible and accomplished. If gravity is the curvature of spacetime caused by large masses placed within it, and space fold is curving it to bring two points together, what happens to everything in between those two points? Wouldn't curvature severe enough to do that wreak havoc on the gravity in between?

Of course, I still don't have a grasp on how points and events are separated in spacetime. There's a whole lot to grasp and trying to sort it out gives me a headache. But it fascinates me. Trying to grasp what a black hole really is ( in theory ) is a real eye twitcher.

The first host, when reading comments in one, got to one where someone said all of what was discussed on the show made him feel stupid. The host, who has degrees int he field, responded "Welcome to my world." :lol: Yeah, apparently even the experts feel stupid while trying to work things out.

What happened to the water and air on Mars?
Well, honestly, we already knew. But now we have science to back it up. Also explains why the idea of teraforming Mars is probably never going to happen.

Is this at all true or is it complete bullshit?
Our DNA can be reprogrammed by words and certain frequencies

This article is based on the book “Vernetzte Intelligenz” -Networked Intelligence

Russian scientists have shown that our DNA can actually be reprogrammed by words and certain frequencies. According to scientists only 10% of our DNA is being used for building proteins. It is this subset of DNA where researchers are pointing their investigations to, their plan is to review and classify it again and they hope to learn something very interesting in the process.
The remaining 90% of the DNA is considered “junk DNA”, I know that many won’t agree with a term such as “Junk DNA” but let us continue. Interestingly couple of years ago, new formulas from Russian scientists, specialized in biophysics and molecular biology showed that 7 percent of our DNA has a higher purpose and is not in any way ‘junk’. According to newer studies, the human DNA is a biological internet far superior than any artificial.

Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr ​​Garjajev and his fellow scientists involved in the research exposed that, directly or indirectly, phoneme such as: clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self-healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more. In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies without cutting out and replacing single genes.

Why do the safety instructions on airplanes say to put your own air mask on first, before helping others?
The truth is, it's actually damn good advice.
