Time Travel. A notion most people don’t take seriously mainly because Marty McFly made it look fun in his hypothetical little world, with his self-tying Nike’s and Hover Skateboards. But is the idea of time-travel actually possible? (more…)

Why Do Men Cheat?

I’ve come across a question the burns inside many women’s minds, why do men cheat? The universal answer most women end up at is men are dogs! Psychology has taught us men are driven to cheat by hormones, availability, and upbringing. Women on the other hand cheat due to emotional neglect, and the need for emotional intimacy. In our modern society, the percentage of cheating women is rising, but I will delve further into that pool on my next blog.

The laws of nature and nurture, in concert with past relationships all contribute to a man’s desire to cheat. On the side of nature we have high testosterone levels making for a higher sex drive, the need for risk taking, higher aggression levels, and competitiveness, a phenomenon that has been documented in labs as well as in athletes. Some men have lower levels of Monoamine Oxidase A, which regulates the brain’s levels of dopamine, the pleasure neurotransmitter, creating what’s called “Sensation Seekers.” Sensation seekers crave intense experiences more than other people do. They often have energetic personalities, and yearn for new and intense experiences to negate boredom.


What do dreams mean?  Are your dreams trying to tell you something? “Dream” is defined in Webster’s Dictionary as a “sequence of sensations, images, thoughts, etc., passing through a sleeping person’s mind” . Dreams have been a topic of study dating back to 4000 B.C.  One may say that dreams have been around as long as the first civilization came to be and are just a normal part of human existence.

This is NOT good...

I know most of you have had the “chase” dream, or how about the “falling” dream.  Others may have dreamed that they were flying or that they were naked.  These are some common dreams that people have.  I know I’ve definitely had the falling dream, and the chasing dream where you are moving in absolute slow-motion.

In our dreams, we can go anywhere, we can be anybody, and we can do anything.  When we dream, we are like passengers on a moving train, unable to control our actions and choose surroundings.  We let our mind take over.   Sometimes, dreams can be understood in the the context of repressed thoughts. Dreaming serves as an outlet for those thoughts and impulses we repress during the day. When we go to sleep at night and slip into our dream state, we feel liberated and behave and act in a manner that we do not allow ourselves in our waking life.
