One of my favorite journalistic topics is researching what science has to say about some of the great mysteries of the universe: life after death, telepathic dreams, premonitions, space/time conundrums. Did you know, for example, that women dream differently than men? Or that our dreams change as we age? Whoa!
Maybe in another lifetime I might have even been a quantum physicist or studied neurobiology. If only I’d been good at math 🙁
What is this thing called consciousness?
Not even the experts seem to understand it yet, although it does now seem clear, scientifically speaking, that the mind is a functioning thing that can exist separate from the physical brain. Hmm.
I’m working on a fun (and scientific) article about this now, so stay tuned for more soon! Even better, sign up for email updates and follow me here @KristalZook to hear about it first.
