The mysterious phenomenon that accompanies fertilization has been recorded

The origin of life is accompanied by vortices that begin to “rage” in the egg. The phenomenon, which was observed by American scientists from Northwestern University, fascinates, awakens religious thoughts, and even looks mystical. They observed flashes of light that accompanied the fusion of the egg and sperm. Just the same “spark of life.”

“In a whirlwind of events” – this seemingly exclusively allegorical expression found a direct biological meaning. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), led by Nikta Fakhri, have recorded the mysterious wave processes that accompany the fertilization of an egg – that is, conception. Specifically, vortices were discovered and even photographed, which cascades propagation along its surface. The phenomenon was reported by the ScienceAlert portal, citing a scientific publication in the Nature journal.

Fakhri and his colleagues investigated a mysterious phenomenon, when observing under a microscope the fertilization of eggs of starfish, whose proteins were tinted with luminous substances. They made it possible to visualize the vortices that passed through the cell membranes within a few minutes after fertilization.

Waves that travel through the egg

Scientists understood the essence of the process, but did not fully understand its meaning. It was only assumed that vortices are turbulence waves, scientifically expressed, somehow direct cell division in a certain way. They send billions of proteins to specific addresses – places in which certain organs are formed.

“Without these wave-creating proteins, there would be no cell division,” the scientist says.

Researchers believe that they discovered a certain fundamental natural phenomenon that is characteristic of living and non-living matter, micro and macrocosm. For some reason everything swirls in vortices – from galaxies to cyclones and hurricanes in the atmosphere of the Earth and other planets. From the electric fields in the heart and brain to, as it turned out, the proteins in the egg.

Another natural wonder: a fertilized egg begins to glow

The phenomenon, which was observed by American scientists from Northwestern University, fascinates, arouses religious thoughts, and even looks mystical. They observed flashes of light that accompanied the fusion of the egg and sperm. Just the same “spark of life.”

Many scientists can’t believe that the process of the birth of a new life has a divine beginning and sparks are something sent from above. And the most surprising: the more intense the glow, the better the result of fertilization, that is, the transformation of an egg into a full and healthy embryo.

According to them, the intrauterine light has, and by no means a mystical explanation ..

At least the experimenters figured out its nature. And they claim that the spark is created by zinc atoms that the fertilized egg produce. They are waves following one after another with short breaks.

The human body emits rays in the visible range

Amazing experiments were conducted at the University of Kyoto (Kyoto University) and the Institute of Technology, Tohoku (Tohoku Institute of Technology). Researchers put topless people in a completely dark room – for about 20 minutes. At this time, the volunteers were filmed by a high-sensitivity camera, capable of capturing even individual photons. Filming was repeated every three hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The processing of the obtained images showed: the human body glows in the visible range. That is, emits photons. This radiance is very ghostly and weak – a thousand times less intense than the human eye can catch. But it is real.

Moreover, the researchers found that the strength of the human glow varies with the time of the day.

Most clearly people emit light at 4 pm, – Hitoshi Okamura said, one of the experimenters from Kyoto University. – Then the intensity drops, but still remains higher than the morning.

The face, eyes and the region in the area of ​​the thyroid gland shine most strongly. Each square centimeter emits about three thousand photons.

Photos of the glow are very similar to the pictures that are obtained when a person is filmed in the invisible infrared – thermal – range. But the researchers emphasize:

There is nothing in common in each case. Different colors – from blue to red – different intensities of the glow of the visible range. Blue ones correspond to a smaller one, red ones correspond to a larger one. They show the number of photons emitted from a square centimeter of the body and not how these places are heated.

People glow in the dark like ghosts.

There is no exact understanding of the processes that cause the body to glow. According to one hypothesis, it is provoked by chemical – oxidative – reactions in which the so-called free radicals are involved. But it is possible that the nature of “living” radiation is much more complex and not so primitive. It may somehow connected with the brain, since the rays mainly come from the head.

Some people, even though the intensity of the glow is very weak, are still able to perceive it. For example, psychics. It is also possible that some people become sources of very powerful photon radiation.

A New ‘Bermuda Triangle’ where ships become unmanageable and swim in circles

Four tankers suddenly lost control and sailed in circles in the South Atlantic, west of the southern African city of Cape Town.

Early on Sunday morning, May 31, senior officers aboard the Willowie oil tanker were called to the bridge, where they were informed that their ship and four other ships nearby were somehow mysteriously moving in a tapering spiral, the ability to steer there is no ship, and that all the ships headed for rapprochement.

It could be assumed that strong currents pushed ships in a circle, but where the ships sailed in the South Atlantic, west of the southern African city of Cape Town, there were no such currents.

After unsuccessful attempts to regain control of the ship, the crew of the tankers turned off the automation and took control of the ships in manual mode, which avoided a collision.

The incident made scientists try to find an answer about the causes of the anomalies in the area. 

Earlier, the European Space Agency discovered something else strange there.

South Atlantic magnetic anomaly is increasing rapidly

Nobody knows why, but the Earth’s magnetic field, which has lost nearly 10% of its strength over the past two centuries, is becoming especially weak in a large region that stretches from Africa to South America, affecting satellites and spacecraft.

Known as the South Atlantic Anomaly, field strength in this area has rapidly decreased over the past 50 years, as soon as the area itself has grown and moved west. 

And over the past five years, southwest of Africa, very close to the place where the Willowy sailed, a second center of the minimum intensity of the Earth’s magnetic field has arisen.

One of the assumptions regarding this weakening is that it is a sign that the Earth is moving toward a pole reversal – in which the North and South magnetic poles are inverted and swapped.

This switching will not happen immediately and at first several north and south magnetic poles will appear all over the globe.

Not everyone agrees entirely with the official explanation, and they consider that the anomaly that is occurring in the Atlantic Ocean is much more than a weakening of the magnetic field, and they believe that another “Bermuda Triangle” has been discovered and that the boats are in serious danger when navigating those waters.

What happened in the anomalous zone of the Michigan Triangle

We have repeatedly written about the mystical places of our planet. But it’s interesting to read about all mysticism and its exposure, isn’t it? Scientists can explain some of the recognized anomalies, but some cannot, but from this, the theme of all kinds of “triangles” excites our thoughts even more. 

Everyone begins to think up something, fantasize, try to explain strange events, and this creates an additional topic for conversation and interesting debate. This time there is another one in the form of the Michigan triangle. And so it turns out that all mysticism loves this particular geometric figure. Although, perhaps, people are driving it into such a framework, because the “triangle” sounds much more mystical and ominous than for example the “tetrahedron”, or the “trapezoid”.

Mysticism in the ocean is commonplace. This time we’ll talk about a lake.

Where is the Michigan Triangle

The Michigan triangle is called the “younger brother of the Bermuda Triangle”, but few know it. It is similar to everyone knowing Chris Hamsworth, the performer of the role of Thor in the Avengers, but few know his brother Liam, who also starred in the movie. Or, nobody knows the name of James Franco’s brother. The list goes on for long.

Despite the low fame of the Michigan triangle, a lot of everything mystical and mysterious also happened in it. It’s just that it is not so widely covered in cinema, books and other works.

This is how the Michigan triangle looks on the map

This place got its name, like most anomalous zones, by the name of the place where it is located. The Michigan Triangle is located in the center of Lake Michigan – the largest American lake. Its size is really impressive. It is 517 by 190 kilometers, and its area is 58 016 square kilometers. The coastline stretches for 2,656 kilometers and runs through four states. It is the fourth largest freshwater lake in the world.

How ships disappeared in the anomalous zone

In total, several ships and even a couple of planes disappeared in the anomaly on the territory of Lake Michigan. For the first time, something strange happened there in August 1679, when the French ship Griffin disappeared on the territory of Lake Michigan, which was studying the possibility of moving from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic. In those days, ships disappeared often, but they were searched for the remains of either these ships or crew members. There was nothing there.

Such ships often disappeared

After that, in 1891 the cargo ship Thomas Hume disappeared in the triangle. It moved north and collided with a storm, but according to eyewitnesses from the ship that was near and returned to the port of departure, the captain decided to continue moving. As a result, the ship disappeared and no one else saw it or its crew. Many researchers are still looking for it and periodically assure that they found something, but no one has evidence that the Thomas Hume vessel was found.

The most famous disappearance in the Michigan triangle

One of the relatively recent mystical cases occurred on April 28, 1937 with the ship of captain Donner, which was called McFarland.

It followed from the port of Erie to Port Washington. On the way, the captain felt unwell and decided to go on a little rest, putting his assistant at the helm instead. Before leaving for his cabin, he asked to wake him when the ship approached the port. As a result, when after a few hours the crew members approached the captain’s cabin, he was not there. In order to find out his whereabouts, they had to break the door, since it was locked from the inside. The mystique is that there were no windows or hatches in the cabin, and the door was locked from the inside. That is, the captain could not leave and lock the cabin in this way.

Usually ships disappear in mystical places, but not their captains

The incident was even stranger because Captain Donner was an excellent swimmer and a very balanced person. An experienced captain simply could not commit suicide by jumping overboard, as he could not drown, accidentally falling there, all the more so that the water was completely calm that day. Perhaps the captain hid somewhere on the ship? This is out of the question since the ship was thoroughly searched. This could not be a joke either, since after it the joker should appear, but he did not appear. And according to those who knew the captain, he was not a joker.

It was after that day that people began to talk about the notoriety of this place and it was in this that they found an explanation for other oddities that occurred in that area. As a result, no one knows where the captain went. Just like that, a person can disappear for no reason. Or not without reason.

Missing Aircraft in the Michigan Triangle

The first sensational story in the sky above the Michigan Triangle occurred on June 23, 1950. This time, a Norvest Airlines flight (flight 2501), flying from New York to Minneapolis, got into trouble.

An aircraft also mysteriously disappeared just above the water

The aircraft was controlled by Robert Lind, an experienced pilot, and on board were more than sixty people, including crew members. The plane was supposed to fly in the area of ​​the city of Chicago, but there was very bad weather and the route had to be urgently changed. As a result, the path was chosen through the very lake of Michigan. At some point, the pilot stopped communicating and answered the dispatcher. Only after some time, he requested permission to change the height due to electrical discharges along the way. Soon, the plane disappeared from the radar.

Due to the fact that there were many passengers on board, the incident simply could not go unnoticed. And the most interesting thing is that everything happened at about the place where Captain Donner from the previous story was “lost”. Interestingly, the plane was never found in any form. There were not even fragments and bodies of passengers. It remained a mystery where he went. However, two police officers claimed to have seen red flashes in some place. The flashes in the sky lasted for about 10 minutes.

Why ships disappear in the Michigan triangle

There are several versions of why strange things are happening in this area. One of them is a strange magnetic anomaly that makes people behave strangely. However, this could explain the loss of Captain Donner and some other ships, but the cabin was not locked from the inside.

But in general, isn’t here a question, why such triangles do not appear on land? After all, it is much easier to find the wreckage of aircraft or the skeleton of cars there. So no, everything comes necessarily on the sea or lake, where, as they say, all ends are in the water. Or does water really have some mystical properties? Here is an opportunity to reason by yourselves.

The mystery of Atlantis in a mysterious Nazi bunker

This story began in the summer of 1945 when Hitler’s faithful ally, Obergruppenführer SA Ley, who was being held as a war criminal in Nuremberg, alarmed the Allied command with the message that the south of Germany was in danger of disaster. 

He told the Americans that in one of the underground bunkers, code-named Z3, where until the last days of the war the development of Nazi top-secret weapons continued, right before the surrender of Germany, containers with some very dangerous substance were depressurized due to sabotage of prisoners of war. If you do not enter the bunker and do not eliminate the leak, at least a third of the country’s population will die. To prevent so many deaths, Robert Ley, is ready to go down into the dungeon.

The Americans are alarmed. During the war years, the Nazis really launched a stormy activity underground, having built more than 130 underground factories. Obviously, Lei, who held prominent posts and was responsible not only for the Labor Front, but also for the organization of forced labor of prisoners of war and other foreign workers, really could know a lot about the Nazi secret designs.

The Z3 bunker was located in Weimar, and, according to the Americans, the Nazis were engaged in the development of new engines for aircraft. For the manufacture of fuel, they used previously unknown substances and a huge amount of mercury.

The Americans could not let Ley go down to the bunker himself, he had to play a prominent role in the Nuremberg trials – the Nazi was accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Americans did not want to risk a prominent captive, therefore, under the guise of fulfilling allied agreements, Soviet specialists were invited to participate in the liquidation of the accident. They didn’t talk about the real state of things, they threw disinformation on the Soviet command about the development by the Nazis of engines for submarines working on hydrogen peroxide.

Of course, the leadership of the USSR was interested in the new product. Despite the victory, the Soviet Union still lagged behind in a number of research and development. For example, the Nazis in 1941 for the first time launched an underwater rocket from the U-511 submarine. In the USSR, even after four years, they could only dream about it. The Soviet leadership was interested in the Nazi development of plasma weapons, new disk-shaped aircraft and climate weapons. Therefore, in the USSR, it was decided to participate in the inspection of the Z3 bunker. As a performer, they decided to send a self-taught chemist, a specialist in the synthesis of phosphors (substances capable of converting energy into light), senior lieutenant Nikolai Zhirov to Weimar.

Orders are not discussed

Nikolai Zhirov was truly passionate about science. Due to the death of his father, he could not get higher education, but at the age of 25 he published the first scientific articles on the synthesis of phosphors. He had a very noble origin for the USSR, graduated from high school and independently mastered a chemistry course that was not taught at the educational institution. Before the war, he graduated from the Kiev school of command personnel for artillerymen, then retired, worked at the Moscow Research Institute of the Commissariat of Ammunition, and in 1940 published a monograph on phosphors. During the war years, Zhirov developed phosphors of blue glow for the needs of air defense.

When he was called to the Lubyanka on July 6, 1945, Zhirov was sure that he would be offered to work with the archives of the Nazis, because he had excellent knowledge of German at the gymnasium. However, they issued him a certificate of the specially authorized State Defense Committee of the USSR, took a non-disclosure subscription and sent him on a business trip to Weimar. From it, a 42-year-old scientist returned a completely different person.

It is known that in Weimar, Robert Ley personally indicated a hidden entrance to the bunker, after which specialists in chemical protection suits cleared the rubble and found that the lifts were working. However, neither the Americans nor the British decided to go down. And then Nikolai Zhirov did it.

But neither the protective suit, nor the gas mask that Zhirov prudently put on, helped the scientist. After the chemist completed the task and rose to the surface, he became ill. Zhirov was immediately taken to the hospital.

The historian Alexander Voronin in the film “Berlin – Atlantis” mentioned that Zhirov admitted:

In the Nazi dungeon he experienced damage to the nervous system by chemicals unknown to him. But what he saw in the bunker, Zhirov, bound by a state secret, never told anyone.

Patient Zhirov was urgently taken to Moscow and put in the Botkin hospital, where he was until April 1947. The diagnosis, which was given to him by Soviet doctors, did not explain anything: a viral lesion of the central nervous system. At the hospital, Zhirov raved about Atlantis and read excerpts from Plato as a keepsake.

It was here, in a hospital bed, that he found a new meaning in life – the search for an ancient civilization. Zhirov was sure that the Nazis found the source of ancient knowledge, which means that in the USSR it was necessary to open a department similar to the Nazi research organization Anenerbe and find out where, in what source the Nazis drew ideas for new discoveries.

Finding Atlantis

Zhirov was discharged from the hospital as a disabled person of group I, but the scientist was not discouraged – he surrounded himself with textbooks on geology, geography and history and began to search for Atlantis. Despite the fact that in 1948 Zhirov was awarded the degree of Doctor of Chemistry for the totality of works, his new activity did not arouse enthusiasm among the authorities. The chemist continually sent articles to magazines in France and Britain, wrote to foreign colleagues, and therefore was closely monitored by the KGB.

By the second half of the 1950s, Zhirov was sure: Atlantis existed and should rightfully occupy one of the sections of the biogeography of the Quaternary – the geological segment of time, which continues to this day. The bride in a circle. How did the ancient Slavs treat women?

In 1957, his work “Atlantis” was completed, and in 1964 the scientific publication “Atlantis. The main problems of Atlantology” saw the light, in which the author examined the civilization of Atlantis as a period of the formation of mankind and argued that Atlantis really existed, and in the Atlantic when then there was a huge continent, which, as a result of the disaster, plunged into the abyss. Zhirov was sure: the Nazis had somehow found and used the knowledge of this civilization, ahead of the world by decades.

A terminally ill chemist hoped that in the USSR his work would be appreciated, but this did not happen. Soviet science was aimed only at the future, for a great civilization of the past there was no place in it. When Nikolai Zhirov died in 1970, his entire archive was seized and kept secret. Whether this was made out of the principle “no matter what happens” or if the leadership of the USSR really tried to hide something that became known from the archives of the Nazis, we may never know.

But the idea of ​​searching for the ancient Atlantean civilization was eagerly picked up by other Soviet scientists and writers. In 1961, with the introduction of academician Vasily Struve, the book by Atlantis. In Search of the Lost World was published by Ekaterina Andreeva. The search for the mythical Hyperborea took up the famous geologist and geographer Vladimir Obruchev.

In 1974, when researching Mount Amper in the Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 80 meters, the MSU Academician Petrovsky research vessel found clear evidence of the existence of an ancient civilization that was destroyed by a cataclysm and sunk under water. Mount Amper is located about 380 kilometers southwest of Cape San Vicente on the Iberian Peninsula (coordinates 35 ° 03 ‘N, 12 ° 54’ W, minimum depth 59 meters). Repeated pictures of the mountain were taken in 1980 by the Paisys underwater vehicle, and in 1981 even an underwater bell with divers was lowered to Mount Amper. According to scientists, Atlantis was located between the mountain and the mainland and plunged into the sea about eight and a half thousand years ago.

But, unfortunately, shortly after this, the scientific community of the USSR considered research in the Atlantic an empty diversion, and all research was curtailed. The Atlantis of Nikolai Zhirov remained closed. Materials on the Z3 bunker are also still classified.
