Book of the Week: The Manna-Machine

manna-machine-coverThis book from 1978 is one of many in our collection of Ancient Astronaut Theory books. The whimsical cover features an artist’s recreation of the alleged “device” given to the Israelites (by God?) and which allegedly sustained them during their forty year journey in the Sinai Desert.

“Featured in Season One of Ancient Aliens … Sassoon and Dale’s theory posits that a machine drew in moisture from the air and through some technological means was powered by a nuclear reactor (aka the Ark of the Covenant, a topic for another day). The machine then allegedly created some sort of algae-based food.” –

Scientists discover that our brain waves can be sent by electrical fields

 “…it appears the brain may be using the fields to communicate without synaptic transmissions, gap junctions or diffusion.” …According to the researchers, this is evidence that the propagation mechanism for the activity is consistent with the electrical field.

“The results indicate that electric fields (ephaptic effects) are capable of mediating propagation of self-regenerating neural waves,” they write. …

If their findings, which are reported in The Journal of Neuroscience, can be expounded in further studies, it could help us to better understand how brain waves are associated with things like memory, epilepsy, and healthy physiology.


Thanks for your support! See you next week!
