Hey! I’m in college, a neuroscience major and I want to study consciousness. Don’t take my paranormal/creepy section seriously, but take my science and world section seriously! I hope you enjoy and most importantly learn something. Tag sixpenceee in a post for my attention! Arrows (navigation) are at the top in that white box. I don't claim any material here as mine unless otherwise stated. My instagram is @sixpenceee




These structures are all made from cardboard. The artist behind this is Kai Xiang Xhong. 

I literally don't understand half of the hate that was spewed at you this summer. From "stealing" posts to being called ableist. Like it's hilarious. It's honestly hilarious, the extent that people will go to try and twist the words and actions of a popular blogger to make themselves feel better.

To be honest, I stopped taking these tumblr accusations seriously a long time ago. 

I mean I understand. I understand the frustration of seeing someone else post a similar topic or how horror movies portray the mentally ill as something to be scared of.

But relax. It’s nothing to delete your blog over. It’s nothing to stamp harmful labels on people for, without telling them about a cause few people even know about. 

Haters please, please get yourselves a back massage, your favorite meal, and a day outside and realize there are way more important concerns in the world than a college freshman posting horror and science on her blog.

100% do not understand tumblrs hate for scientists being interested in mental illnesses

Honestly, the thing that baffles me about how incredibly smart you are is how little of an age difference we have.

In high school I took a lot of social science classes. It was interesting, but all the politics and the roaring debates in classroom was a major turn off. Don’t get me wrong. I recognize it’s important. But to me, it was a whirling pool of anger and resentment.
That’s not the major reason I chose to be a science major, but it’s a contributing factor. I thought science was all factual information. People in lab coats striving to better understand our world. To me that was beautiful and I wanted to be a part of it. Burning people at stake for a different viewpoint was centuries ago… right? 
Wrong. Science is just as susceptible to that “whirlpool of anger and resentment” as anything else. Even if something has been proven with impeccable data and results, it does not guarantee acceptance with open arms.
Take Dr.Bruce Lipton for example. We now take epigenetics seriously. But in the 1990’s when the topic was first introduced, scientists blew up into hysterics at the thought of the concept. This is why Dr.Lipton left the academia for good in 1992, because although his experiments supported his views, he felt his message was falling onto deaf ears.
An interesting book, I’m reading called The Mind (edited by John Brockman) also highlights an example. When Darwin came back from his voyage, he displayed his Galapagos finches and reptiles, the crucial evidence of evolution. John Gould who was a great ornithologist at the time and knew a lot about birds, corrected some of Darwin’s information and gave him more crucial information in support of evolution. 
But Gould himself still remained a creationist and didn’t stand for evolution. As the book says "the man who knew more saw less and the man who knew less saw more"
I learned that great things take time. Facts and statistics don’t persuade people. Some are forever imprisoned by their own beliefs.
Here is a great article on how some people respond to scientific evidence by twisting information to fit their preexisting views (LINK)
Ofcourse science is a ever changing field and I’m sure by the time I’m 40, science textbooks will be revised and edited many times over. But many new concepts are heavily ridiculed and then gradually accepted generations later. 
"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."
-Max Planck

I aspire to be you.

There’s an island called the Skerries and there’s a point in google maps, where the island looks exactly like this.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on?

In reference to sixpenceee's glitch in the matrix post:
When I was 19, I was depressed, horribly depressed. It was over this idiotic boy, who would never care about me as much as I cared about him. He ignored me, day after day and god did it kill me inside. I stopped caring about school work. Everyday just seemed gloom and depressing. I was a wreck. 
I remember one rainy November morning, I threw my phone at the wall in frustration and just started heaving. It was the worst day. I was tired, just sick of all. I wanted nothing more than my heart to ache over something else, anything else. This situation was tiring and I was so, so exhausted.
And that was when I swear, I felt a hand on my shoulder. It wasn’t even a cold hand, it was warm. I kid you not, I heard a voice say the words “Matthew Love Better”- atleast that’s what I made out. For some reason, I felt better, and that was the last night I cried over my douche of an ex.
5 years later, and I have been together with my new boyfriend Matthew (whose last name I don’t want to give out) for 3 years. I have never been happier in my life with someone than him. 
Anyway that’s my story. Thank you sixpenceee for being a wonderful, kind and thoughtful blogger as always, and letting us have an outlet for our own stories.
