Hunched Backs, Thick Skulls and Small Brains May Be the Future Look of Humanity

You may think that tech companies care more about profits than about the health of their customers or the people who live near their products or factories – and in most cases you’d probably be right. A telecommunications provider in Los Angeles seems to be trying to do the right thing with its new study that predicts what humans will look like in in the near future if we continue down the current handheld communications path. Are you ready for hunched backs, thick skulls, double eyelids and smaller brains (that one sounds like a given)?

“Spending hours looking down at your phone strains your neck and throws your spine off balance. Consequently, the muscles in your neck have to expend extra effort to support your head. Sitting in front of the computer at the office for hours on end also means that your torso is pulled out in front of your hips rather than being stacked straight and aligned.”

TollFreeForwarding.com is the LA telecommunications company which recently commissioned Maple Holistics, a provider of holistic health and beauty products, to develop a 3D model based on what kinds of strains modern technology usage is placing on our bodies today and how we’ll look if that doesn’t change. A recent Australian study showed that teens are developing external occipital protuberances or bony spikes on their necks due to excessive cell phone usage. So, it should come as no surprise that Mindy, the name Maple Holistics gave to its 3D user-of-the-future has major changes to her back and neck which eventually will lead to an arched or humped back and neck. (Photos of Mindy can be seen here.) Who knew that Quasimodo was ahead of his time?

“The way we hold our phones can cause strain in certain points of contact – causing “text claw,” which is known as cubital tunnel syndrome.”

Dr. Nikola Djordjevic from Med Alert Help explains in the study that future humans will develop clawed hands and pain in their elbows, shoulders and arms when they’re not in the 90-degree bend for cell phone usage. Again, not much of a surprise. It’s the changes above the neck that will make Mindy far different that today’s humans.

“In 2011, the World Health Organization classified smartphone radiation as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”, with a number of long-term studies seeking to establish the full impact. After a 2018 study suggested smartphone radiation may affect memory performance, questions were raised over its impact on other cognitive areas too.”

Based on that, Mindy developed a thick skull to protect her brain from radiation. However, it’s not thick enough to protect her from the most serious evolutionary development – because that has nothing to do with radiation. Mindy has a smaller brain and a smaller body in general because that technology in her hand has removed the need for the rest of her to develop and improve.

Needless to say, this Mindy would have problems getting a date on today’s Tinder … and that’s before the final evolutionary change predicted by the model because of too many years of staring at screens both big and small – double eyelids.

“Humans may develop a larger inner eyelid to prevent exposure to excessive light, or the lens of the eye may be evolutionary developed such that it blocks incoming blue light but not other high wavelength lights like green, yellow or red.”

Ahhhhh! The progression to Reptilian is compete!

Clawed hands? Check. Smaller brain? Check. Hunched back? Check. Two eyelids? Check. Protuberances? Check.

Is a hunchbacked, bent-elbowed, thick-skull, small-brained, reptilian eyelidded future human inevitable? Probably not. We’ve already tested ways to move away from cell phones to hands-free communications and internet usage (remember Google Glass?) and need for cell phones, tablets and notebooks will most likely dissipate, if not disappear completely into the next generation of technology. However, the psychological changes are longer-lasting (tech dependency, less human interaction, lack of sleep) and need to be studied further.

It looks like Mindy will spend a lot of time hunched up on her small-brained psychiatrist’s couch.

Highly Unusual Creature Discovered Beneath the Antarctic

Strange gelatinous creature has been discovered by scientist 3,500 meters beneath the ocean’s surface.

via Unexplained-Mysteries:

Likened by some to the terrifying alien creature in science-fiction movie ‘The Thing’, this never-before-seen deep-sea life form was found within a scarcely explored region of the ocean floor that is so far down that it experiences pressures 300 times those found at the surface.

It was discovered by scientists aboard the New Zealand research vessel RV Tangaroa.

“It has something quite interesting at the front which sort of likened it to a hippopotamus,” said Dr Kareen Schnalbel, a marine biologist at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research.

“We don’t know how many are down there, we don’t know how common this is.”

“But I have never seen anything like this before.”

You can watch a full documentary about the team’s discoveries below.

Falling Fireballs Crashed in Chile Last Week. They Weren’t Meteorites, Experts Say.

Chilean officials are investigating a curious collection of burning objects that fell onto parts of the country last week.

Goodness gracious! Great balls of fire rained from the sky in Chile last week, and officials are still trying to figure out what they were and where they came from.

One thing is certain: The mysterious burning objects were not meteors, according to news reports.

The fiery UFOs descended on Dalcahue City on the Chilean island of Chiloé on Sept. 25, CNET reported. . The tumbling objects crash-landed in seven locations, setting off fires that were promptly put out by volunteer firefighters. .

Geologists from Chile’s National Geology and Mining Service soon arrived to examine the seven sites that had been scorched by the falling space stuff. While they conducted their analyses, the story spread through local news, social media and national outlets.

Chilean astronomer and astrophysicist José Maza told Chilean news network TVN that the blazing bodies were likely either meteorites or space debris that had detached from rockets or satellites, according to CNET. On Sept. 26, astronomer Jonathan McDowell of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics chimed in on Twitter, saying that the falling objects were probably meteorites and that there were “no obvious space debris candidates that [he could] see.”

“But [it] sometimes takes a few days for relevant data to come in,” McDowell added.

On Sept. 28, the geologists released their official assessment: None of the seven sites contained traces of meteorite. Since the mysterious objects weren’t meteors, logic dictates that they must have been wayward space junk, but officials said they’ll be conducting more detailed analyses of soil samples collected from the singed sites to make sure, according to CNET. The geologists will release their results later this month. Only time will tell what exactly fell from the heavens on that unusual September evening.

Strange Angel Hair Phenomenon

When most people hear the phase “angel hair”, they immediately think of the classic pasta dish, but for the avid UFO enthusiast, it takes on an entirely different meaning.

The strange material known as “angel hair”–a light, cobweb-like substance that reportedly sometimes falls from the sky during UFO sightings–has been considered to be somewhat of a fringe element of Fortean phenomena, but this doesn’t mean that occurrences of angel hair have been rare; in fact, since 1947, there have been well over 200 documented cases of this gossamer-like substance being found in direct connection with UFO sightings.

So what exactly is angel hair? It has been generally described as being fibrous and silk-like, with a remarkable consistency that on one hand can be strong and resilient, but then in an instant can dissipate into the air like fog or smoke.

Some ufologists believe that angel hair is left behind as some sort of “exhaust” from alien spacecraft, similar to carbon emissions that are produced by an automobile. Scores of eyewitness reports describe unidentified flying objects including cigar-shaped aircraft, disks and silver spheres emitting this bizarre substance, particularly after moments of rapid acceleration or complex aerial maneuvers.

The substance will slowly drop to the ground, often landing on fences, wires or trees in the area, many times covering large areas at a time. In fact, there have been several reports of angel hair covering power lines for miles on end, or blanketing several square miles of land at a time.

One report from October of 1957 describes how an area of New Mexico was draped in strands of angel hair that reached up to 50 feet in length apiece, and covered a total area of roughly 110 miles. This bizarre phenomenon is often classified as being a close encounter of the second kind, since the substance typically makes some type of physical contact with the environment.

According to a vast number of reports, one of the most interesting properties of angel hair is its ability to demonstrate sublimation, which is the ability of the substance to change directly from a solid to a gas, essentially bypassing the liquid stage altogether.

It has been described in various instances as both fine and coarse, having a consistency similar to cotton, but it often dissipates as it is being physically handled. The most commonly reported color for angel hair is white, but it has also been observed in other instances as being silver, gray, black, and even translucent.

There seems to be no one particular cause for the phenomenon, but there is an inextricable link between UFO sightings and angel hair, with roughly 57% of all angel hair cases being tied to UFO reports in some way. In addition, eyewitness accounts representing virtually every corner of the globe generally agree on both the look and the consistency of this odd substance.

There have been several cases where angel hair was not only recovered from alleged UFO sighting areas, but it has also been examined in scientific laboratories. The substance has been examined by professionals from a wide range of disciplines, with the general consensus being about the same: Nobody is quite sure what this stuff is made of.

Prominent biologists, chemists, fiber technicians, toxicologists, engineers, and so forth have all sought to gain insight into the composition of this strange substance, but to little avail. Common elements such as boron, magnesium, silicon, potassium, and calcium have been discovered in samples of angel hair, with the most notable element being boron due to its noted usage in nuclear technology.

Boron is commonly utilized as a buffer that shields and controls nuclear reactions, a fact that has prompted many researchers to speculate that angel hair may be the by-product of some type of nuclear-powered propulsion system.

Some skeptics have claimed that angel hair is nothing more than the webbing produced by ballooning spiders, which are known for producing large blankets of silk webs that are often pulled aloft by the wind.

Interestingly enough, all of the samples of angel hair that have been studied in laboratories have lacked a primary ingredient that is necessary for spiders to manufacture their webbing: Protein.

The “ballooning spider theory” also does not account for the fact that angel hair often sublimates on contact, which is almost the complete opposite of what happens when physical contact with a spider’s web occurs.

While the phenomenon of angel hair definitely leaves quite a bit of room for speculation, its correlation to UFO sightings cannot be easily dismissed. In light of all that is still not known about this unique substance, it would be beneficial for more members of the UFO and scientific community to devote more time and resources towards conducting serious research of this mysterious phenomenon.
