Lucid Dreaming with Alan Wallace, Stephen LaBerge, Fariba Bogzaran

Published on Jan 27, 2016

A panel with Alan Wallace, Stephen LaBerge, Fariba Bogzaran and
moderated by Daniel Deslauriers.

do Eastern and Western philosophy, neuroscience and phenomenology have
to say about the experience of lucid dreaming? Can lucid dreaming
contribute to how we understand consciousness and the sense of self?
Each of the discussants brings a particular inflection to the study of
lucid dreaming through their personal experience and professional roles,
together combining scientific research, contemplative practices and
creative phenomenology. In this dialogue we explore how these
disciplines help us to understand the nature of consciousness, in waking
and in sleep.

BOBBY MCFERRIN - Don't worry be happy lyrics

Don't Worry Be Happy
's a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry, you make it double
Don't worry, be happy
Don't worry, be happy now
Ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-ooh hoo-hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Don't worry
Be happy
Don't worry, be happy
Ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-ooh hoo-hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Don't worry
Be happy
Don't worry, be happy
Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don't worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don't worry (Ha-ha ha-ha ha-ha)
Be happy (Look at me, I'm happy)
Ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-ooh ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Can A Parrot Serve As Witness In Murder Trial

Published on Jun 10, 2016

10, 2016 - Michigan prosecutors are trying to determine whether a
parrot can be a witness in a murder case where a Michigan man was shot
and killed in his home last year. Weeks later, his African grey parrot
apparently mimicked what may have been an argument before the shooting.
Don Dahler asked a parrot expert whether the pet could hold the key to
the mystery.
