  1. Why We Sleep?Sleep’s actual function is highly misunderstood, but we know we need to function efficiently and productively. It is thought that sleep helps restore and rebuild everything we burnt off that day. Specific genes turn on when we sleep; their sole purpose is for restoration. Brain and memory repossessing is another leading theory; when asleep, neuro pathways are strengthened. The less important ones are weakened, allowing loose connections to emphasize the more important ones.

    The average human will spend 24 years of their life asleep. Those who get less than seven hours have a greater risk of developing depression, brain damage, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. However, getting too much sleep can cause the same risks.

  1. The Hum

This eerie low-frequency humming noise seems to have appeared out of nowhere. Reports from all over the globe complain of hearing this sound, and once it moves in, it never leaves. The Hum is known as the Hum, a steady, throbbing sound heard in places such as Taos, New Mexico; Bristol, England; Winsor, Ontario; and Largs, Scotland. However, only about two percent of the people living in Hum-prone surroundings and most of them are ages 55 to 70, according to Geoff Leventhall of Surrey, England.

Bristol is the first place on Earth where the Hum was heard. In the 1970s, some 800 people in that city reported hearing a steady humming sound. All the hum cases seem to have several commonalities. Usually, the Hum is only heard indoors, and it’s louder at night than during the day. In addition, the hum is rare in metropolitan areas due to steady background noise in crowded cities.

Some studies have been and are being looked at to figure out the Hum. But no clear answers can yet be given as to why it occurs.

  1. Intuition

Albert Einstein said that intuition is our most valued asset and the most untapped sense. Often referred to as a sixth sense, your gut feeling, inner sense, and or instinct. Intuition is viewed as a method to attain knowledge, perceive information, and decide in stressful situations.

One method to tap into your intuitive sense is to learn to meditate. By doing so, it drops the ego, and you allow yourself to find answers within.

Inside the world of science, how do you even study something invisible and magically comes out of nowhere?

Intuition meaning – intuition definition from the dictionary says “the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.”

  1. Déjà Vu

Déjà vu is a French term for “already seen.” We all have experienced a new place and feeling as if we have been there before. We sometimes feel like we have dreamt of that experience in the past. This occurs more often in kids between the ages of six and 10.

It is impossible to re-create a Déjà vu experience, so studying it makes it next to an impossibility. Therefore, research on Déjà Vu is put into two classifications: experimental studies and observational studies. In experimental studies, scientists try to recreate Déjà Vu’s experiences in individuals. The thought behind these studies is that if we can learn what causes Déjà Vu, we might understand where it comes from.

Experts measure the Déjà Vu experience (how often it happens, when it occurs, to whom it is affecting, etc.) and record it, well seeking out patterns.

  1. Dark Energy/ Dark Matter

Way more is unknown about what dark energy and dark matter are than what is known about it.

Scientists now understand how much dark energy there is due to how it affects the expansion of the Universe. Otherwise, it is a complete mystery. It turns out that about 68 percent of the Universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27 percent. The rest, which is everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our technologies, all other cases only add up to under five percent of the Universe.

Any space between objects is considered dark energy and dark matter. If you can solve why this is, you will be the next Nobel prize recipient in science.
