Hug the Universe
The universe we’re a part of is a mind-poppingly massive and amazing place. As long as humans have existed we’ve been trying to understand its complexities and master the endless mysteries of this “human” thing we find ourselves participating in, and while we’ve accomplished some truly incredible things, there are still so many questions that remain unanswered.
Hug the Universe is a website that explores the human experience through the lenses of science, consciousness research, personal stories, and other things that are of interest to some guy named Ryan (that’s me). All fueled by the power of boundless curiosity, courage, and a desire to understand what's really really real.

This is post #2 in the human behavior series. Here we really dig into the science behind consciousness research and the method used to measure the quality of energy.
This is post #3 in the human behavior series. Here we look at objective information regarding Donald Trump and the level of consciousness he is expressing. It's troubling, to say the least.
This is post #4 in the human behavior series. The information we’ve looked at might’ve seemed weird at first, but so did realizing the Earth isn’t the center of everything.
