The ESP Enigma The Scientific Case for Psychic Phenomena
by Diane Hennesy Powell, MD

Every so often a book comes along the scope of which impacts everything that comes after it and helps to make sense of much that came before it. Such a book landed in my hands a few weeks ago and I feel compelled to tell you about it because it addresses the single most significant question to face humanity in the 21st century. That question impacts ALL others that humanity will confront during this period, especially during this next decade as the world grapples with the seemingly impossible challenges facing us right now!

Albert Einstein gave us a “heads-up” when he said over a half century ago;
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
Albert Einstein
The man who gave us the thinking that created the invention with the greatest impact of the 20th century, atomic energy, understood that the ultimate tool we use in facing the challenges of survival as a species, our consciousness, believed that Human Consciousness has the complexity of different levels! So, here is the question that encompasses all others:
“What is consciousness and how does it work?”

Consciousness is the primary tool that makes human beings sentient, aware of themselves in the universe of which they are a part and aware of their awareness, AND the uniqueness that they aware that they were aware!

I have been in the habit of reading non-fiction books from back to front. I usually start with the last chapter or two as most such are writing a discourse laying out the case for the author’s distinctive perspective starting with the first chapter, building their case. If I intuitively resonate (right brain) with the conclusion the author states, then I will go back and intellectually (left brain) read how they came to that point of view.

So I read the last two chapters of this book first. I was a bit blown away! The title does not do justice to the scope of this book! By the time I had finished the last chapter I was so excited I could hardly wait to get started at the beginning and devour the thing!

I have seldom read an author who has explored what we now refer to as an entity/function called “Consciousness,” who was not stuck in reductionistic thinking when looking at “reality,” certainly not one who has the credentials and experience Powell has. The big picture, holistic, strategic perspective is a critical element in assuming a leadership position in any given area. Powell is destined to become an international leader in the field of consciousness. The scope of this book is breath-taking and comes not a moment too soon in this global time of extreme crisis. I believe that defining consciousness will become the all-encompassing and seminal question of the 21st century and will utterly transform what it means to be human – IF we succeed in surviving the next 90 years!

Scientists accidentally create mutant enzyme that eats plastic bottles | Environment | The Guardian

Scientists have created a mutant enzyme that breaks down plastic drinks bottles – by accident. The breakthrough could help solve the global plastic pollution crisis by enabling for the first time the full recycling of bottles. The new research was spurred by the discovery in 2016 of the first bacterium that had naturally evolved to eat plastic, at a waste dump in Japan. Scientists have now revealed the detailed structure of the crucial enzyme produced by the bug.

Beyond SolarCity, Vivint Solar and Sunrun: Who Is Actually Growing in the Residential Solar Market? | Greentech Media

A chill has hit homesolar According to GTM Research’s latest U.S. Solar Market Insight report, Q3 2017 was the third consecutive quarter that the residential solar market fell by installation volume. It's easy to blame the “big three” for this downturn -- collectively, SolarCity, Vivint Solar and Sunrun (excluding Sunrun's channel business) are down 32 percent in installation volume over the first three quarters of 2016, according to the latest U.S. PV Leaderboard. At the same time, we talk about the rest of the market -- the long tail -- as though it were an aggregate force tempering the downfalls of the behemoth big three.
