King of Kong – The World of Professional Gamers

The world of professional gamers may seem about as irrelevant to Brainwaving’s mission as say Pumping Iron does. However I believe that in both cases these films present significant and entertaining insights into some of the sub-cultures that have arisen in today’s society. They are is some sense social tumors – clusters of people that [...]

MDMA Rising

MDMA Rising

Introduction #
We are rarely surprised by media coverage about recreational psychoactives. Most can be lumped into the broad genre of sensationalist exposé about the terrible dangers of drugs designed to titillate teens and frighten parents.

The Self Aware Universe

Amit Goswami is one of the world’s foremost quantum physcicists. In the late 1980s Goswami developed an idealist interpretation of quantum mechanics, inspired in part by philosophical ideas drawn from Advaita Vedanta and theosophy.

Prof. David Nutt’s fighting for truth

David Nutt in New Scientist:
http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn18099-david-nutt-governments-should-get-real-on-drugs.html
IF THERE is one thing that politicians can and should do to limit the damage caused by illegal drugs, it is to take careful note of the evidence and develop a rational drug policy. Some politicians find it easier to ignore the evidence, and pander to public prejudice instead.

Pumping Iron

Pumping Iron

I saw this and thought it was probably the best documentary I had ever seen – Arnie is so much better in real life than he is playing a made up character. Its amazing insight into the Governator’s character, he’s definitely got my vote anyway.

As more remains were discovered one thing became [...]

Dr. Quantum makes the fundamentals of quantum physics seem simple – at least until you start thinking about it!
