11 Surprising Facts About the Respiratory System

The respiratory system is made up of several organs and structures, including the lungs, windpipe, diaphragm and alveoli. It is responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon-dioxide waste.

Breathing allows you to take in the oxygen your cells need and expel carbon-dioxide waste. But when you exhale, you also breathe out a lot of water.

How much water do you lose from breathing?

When at rest, humans exhale up to 17.5 milliliters (0.59 fluid ounces) of water per hour, according to a 2012 article in the journal Polish Pneumonology and Allergology. But you lose about four times that amount when you exercise, the study said.

The average time an adult can hold his or her breath is between 30 and 60 seconds. This limitation has more to do with the buildup of blood-acidifying carbon dioxide than the lack of oxygen, which your body stores in muscle proteins called myoglobin.

But free divers — people who practice the sport of diving underwater without using equipment like scuba gear — have different techniques, such as hyperventilation, to decrease the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood, allowing them to hold their breath for remarkably long times. Denmark’s Stig Severinsen currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest free dive — in 2010, he held his breath underwater for 22 minutes.

Horses only breathe through their noses.

Asthma was once treated with psychotherapy

The lungs are the only organ that can float on water.

When you breathe in, our chest swells; when you breathe out, our chest collapses. But these chest movements are not actually the result of air filling up or exiting the lungs.

During inhalation, the diaphragm — a thin sheet of dome-shaped muscle that separates the chest and abdominal cavities — contracts and moves down, increasing the space in the chest cavity. At the same time, the muscles between the ribs contract to pull the rib cage upward and outward. During exhalation, the exact opposite happens.

Sea of Discovery , Ocean of Possibility

To date, we have explored less than five percent of the ocean

The ocean is the lifeblood of Earth, covering more than 70 percent of the planet’s surface, driving weather, regulating temperature, and ultimately supporting all living organisms. Throughout history, the ocean has been a vital source of sustenance, transport, commerce, growth, and inspiration.

Yet for all of our reliance on the ocean, 95 percent of this realm remains unexplored, unseen by human eyes.

How does the moon really effect us?

All objects including stars, planets and satellite bodies along with their gross (tangible) attributes emanate subtle (intangible) frequencies. These physical attributes and subtle-frequencies affect us in varying degrees at a physical and subtle-level.-moon-a

The frequencies emanating from the Moon affect the frequencies of the mental body, i.e. mind of human beings. By ‘mind’ we mean our feelings, emotions and desires. The mind consists of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind. Within the sub-conscious mind we have a number of impressions that are embedded that decide our basic nature and personality. We are however not aware of the thoughts or impressions in our sub-conscious mind. These impressions get collected over a number of lifetimes.

These impressions in our mind are the catalysts for all our thoughts and subsequent actions. Both the impressions and our thoughts have their own subtle-frequencies.

The moon frequencies have the capacity to make the thought frequencies from the impressions in our sub-conscious mind to surface to the conscious mind. Once in the conscious mind we become aware of them. Thus one will be influenced as per the predominant impressions in one’s mind. We have explained this in more detail in the next section.

Similarly the moon also affects the mind of animals. However as the sub-conscious mind of animals consists of impressions related only to basic desires such as hunger, sex, sleep etc., the heightened thoughts are related to these basic instincts only.

Stoned Crystal Crew

Vesuvianite, Limonite Quartz, Carnelian, Dalmation Jasper

New crystal alert! I picked up a few new stones/crystals for the collection. Earlier this week I was grabbed by some Vesuvianite.  This stone feels smooth and soft. I always find it interesting how something solid can feel soft. Meditation with Vesuvianite will be going down soon. Right Now I have been focusing in on Dalmatian Jasper. The pattern reminds me of a Cheetah or Leopard never an actual Dalmatian puppy. The energy is interesting and fun. The best way I can describe the Dalmatian energy sensations is:  Picture your hand  balled into a fist jasper being held within, imagine a infinity symbol around your hand and the energy is flowing-following the pattern of the infinity symbol outline. Now imagine two infinite symbols in a X kind of pattern with energy flowing through the outline of the double figure 8. Also seemed to be directing my attention to the root chakra in an magnetic kind of way.  Carnelian I have heard much about and it was mentioned to me last night so I decided I have to pick some up. The Limonite Quartz caught my eye with the mimosa orange stained exterior. Quartz clusters are my go to lately, I just can not seem to get enough of them. More crystals and experiences/sensations with them coming soon.

Ether Technology is a great book shedding much needed light free energy. Advances is technology are be being suppressed because It will render current primitive ways of providing energy useless. If we do not depend on gas … gas companies will not thrive and so on. Furthermore the power of ether technology has and can possibly be used to leave the planet!
