The search for truth is an endless one. I spent three years at university studying philosophy, attempting to come to terms with some of the ultimate realities of the universe. And before me, hundreds of scientists and thinkers have devoted their lives to the study of what is true.

Imagine my surprise then, when I learnt that the answers were within our grasp all along. I’d noticed a trend of articles being shared by my friends on Facebook, each with the promise of some hidden truth. And I’d never heard any of these before! Here are some examples:

I mean, wow! The vibratory power of sacred words! We should probably let those scientists know about this right away, yeah? What a breakthrough!

Cannabis-based batteries? Oh my god! This changes everything! The implications for mobile technology alone are enormous!

Again, wowsers! A huge breakthrough about Stonehenge that changes everything! Of course, this probably should be documented in some archeological review journal rather than “” – but that’s just the beauty of the openness of the internet.

Fascinated by this sub-culture devoted to unearthing hidden truths that mainstream science refuses to acknowledge, I embarked on a project to submerge myself in it as fully as possible. I liked a number of Facebook pages, as shown here –

For the record, I liked The Soulful Woman purely for balance. Who knows what advances that page might uncover that I’d miss if I didn’t like the page?

Anyway, I was quickly learning lots of new facts about the world. For instance, did you know that reincarnation is TRUE? As in, there’s like scientific evidence that proves it. Oh my god, right?

And every morning I’d have the distinct pleasure of reading inspirational quotes from famous historical figures such as Buddha and Einstein.

And that really means a lot to me. It’s so deep and insightful.

But the real joy came from actually interacting with all this content. Underneath every post there’d be people celebrating the fact that this knowledge was now freely available to everyone. Or sharing tips on how to align their chakras with crystal harmonies. Basically all the things they don’t teach you in school!

I even began sharing the articles with others myself. After all, this stuff isn’t making the news (crazy right?) so it’s up to us to forma  kind of grassroots movement to put the info out there. I’d encourage you to do the same.

And just check out that positivity! 20 minutes after I’d commented, the page admin themselves (surely a top scientific researcher at the Fractal Enlightenment labs) took the time to reply to me with thanks. Truly a humbling experience.

So the takeaway from this is that I’d encourage you to go out and seek these groups on Facebook for yourself. I guarantee you’ll learn something new and insightful.

You’ll thank me for it!
