ANNA LEMIND: “Your Cat Can See Things That Are Invisible To You”

Cats are considered by many as symbols of mysticism because of their elegant and flexible body, as well as their gaze that can “magnetize” anyone…

Indeed, as recent scientific data show, there is another reason why cats have a title of ‘mysterious’ creatures. It’s all because cats see things we cannot see with our eyes!

Cats, like some other animals, have the ability to see psychedelic stripes on flowers or fancy patterns on the wings of birds, which are invisible to human vision.

The secret behind the super vision of our four-legged friends is the UV light. According to a recent study cats, as well as dogs and other animals, can perceive this type of light which humans can’t.

“There are plenty of things that reflect UV radiation, which some sensitive animals are able to see, while we are not,” said Ronald Douglas, professor of biology of the City University of London and co-author of the study. “For example, these may be certain patterns on flowers that show where the nectar is, or traces of urine of an animal. Also, reindeer can and see polar bears as the snow reflects UV radiation, while white fur does not.”

Therefore, cats, dogs and reindeer can detect with their eyes animals with white fur, while most people will only see… white snow.

Douglas, who specializes in optics, and Glen Jeffery, professor of neuroscience of the University College London, argue that cats, dogs, hedgehogs, rodents, bats, weasels and the okapis can detect significant levels of ultraviolet radiation.

“For decades, we have known that many invertebrates such as bees see ultraviolet light,” continued Douglas, saying that even birds, fish and some reptiles were recently added to the same list.

“However, scientists believed that most mammals cannot see ultraviolet light because they have no visual pigment with maximum sensitivity to ultraviolet light, but instead have lenses like those of humans, preventing ultraviolet light from penetrating into the retina,” he said.

The professor explained that the visual pigments are those that absorb light and turn it into electrical activity, which, in turn, is transmitted through nerve cells. It seems that it is not always necessary for sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation. Instead, transparent parts of the eye such as the cornea and the crystalline lens in some animals transmit wavelengths of ultraviolet light.

This ability allows more light to pass to the retina, “something that would be very useful for a nocturnal cat“, he continued.

It could also explain why cats show so much interest to ordinary objects, such as a piece of paper. Sometimes chemical substances are added to paper, textiles, laundry detergents, shampoos and cosmetics in order to make objects look brighter. Once these optical brighteners absorb the ultraviolet light, they may look differently in the eyes of animals that are sensitive to UV rays.

Some people, for example, those who have undergone cataract surgery, also can see some of the UV light, but most cannot.

“We all know that ultraviolet radiation can be harmful,” said Jeffery in Discovery News. “I work a lot in the Arctic, where the UV radiation levels are too high as there is much snow and ice. The surfaces reflect 90% of UV radiation, with the result that animals are exposed to it. If you do not wear goggles, your eyes will hurt within the first 15 minutes.”

However, studies on reindeer have shown that repeated exposure to ultraviolet light does not bother them at all.

It is possible that cats, deer and some other animals that can detect UV rays have a protective mechanism. Also, scientists believe that UV light tends to create more blur.

“Humans are good at one thing: they can see more details,” added Douglas and concluded:

“Maybe that’s why we have a lens that ‘blocks’ ultraviolet light. If you do not have it, the world might appear more blurred.”

CHRISTINA SARICH: “A Wise Sage Reveals the Practical Truth About Your Third Eye”

Third Eye Pineal Gland

There are countless descriptions of the powers of the pineal to transport us into other realms, but perhaps no other explanation is as clear and concise as that offered by Jaggi Vasudev, commonly known as Sadhguru, the Indian yogi, and mystic.

This wise teacher tells us that the mysteries of the pineal are found beyond its physical location in the body. He explains that we can believe in peace, but true ecstatic union with the Divine can only happen through the pathless path – that is a transcendence of the physical reality which we currently are experiencing.

“This is a dialectical culture. You don’t take these things literally, logically. You need to always read behind it…. The third eye is not a physical thing. It is just that if you’re energies reach a certain peak within you, you have a new clarity of vision of  life. You see everything from a completely different dimension.” – Sadhguru

Sadhguru discriminates between the myth of the God, Shiva, who will open his third eye, and see the entire Universe, clearly for what it is, or destroy it by burning it all up with an awakened power, and the actual reality which this story represents to any seeker of an opened third eye. He describes the ‘dialectic culture’ from which this story originates, and says that it has been confused by a literal translation.

When we remove the distortion of the story, it is similar to eradicating the distortion of our experience which is also so badly slanted towards egoic, physical fixation, such that we cannot see ourselves, and our world as other, more enlightened individuals may from ‘other realms’ of consciousness.

As Sadhguru has said meditation cleans the flashlight so that our third eye can function as it should:

“Intelligence is like a flashlight. If you flash it, it’ll just show you what’s in front. Knowledge is like a projector; if you switch it on, it projects its own story. Now, if you came with a flashlight and you flash it on these paintings here, you will see the paintings just the way they are. If you came with the projector, which also has light in it, and you turned it on; you don’t see the paintings. You will see something else, maybe Jackie Chan fighting. That’s the difference between knowledge and intelligence.”

Sadhguru further explains:

Now, the moment your intelligence gets entangled with identifications, it is all screwed up. It doesn’t show you things the way they are. It’ll distort everything. Knowledge means a certain accumulation. In that sense, knowledge is an impediment, but if you see things the way they are, that is not an impediment. That is the only way you can walk clearly.

When you become meditative, you will see, your intellectual capabilities will increase many times more than what it is right now. Not because meditation makes you intelligent, but because meditation clears up the mess, the muck that’s gathered on the glass of the flashlight. As your meditation deepens, it just clears up the muck more and more and the flashlight becomes more and more powerful. It shows you things more and more clearly.”

Meditation allows the pineal, the third eye, to truly SEE. He explains exactly how this process works in this video:

GREGG PRESCOTT (IN5D): “Global Unity Project: What The World Needs Right Now”

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.
Editor, In5D.com

Society is waking up on many levels. Since September 11, 2001, many truths have arisen regarding the “few who control the many”. Right now, the few (The Builderbergs) are in a private meeting in the UK deciding what is on their best interests, not ours. This is why it is so important to begin within because the only person who should be deciding your future is you… not the corporate elite who have raped this planet and is currently running a eugenics program designed to cull the population.

So how can you do this? By looking within for answers. The mainstream media will rarely report anything that is not within their own agenda. You can also set intentions on the world that YOU envision for yourself as well as others. For example, on our last New Moon, I envisioned a world that lives in abundance, good health, prosperity and peace. It all begins with YOU!❤
