So I've gathered you gentlemen here today to help me solve the greatest mystery I am faced with.
A Co-worker of mine claims that she can hear God talking to her sometimes. He tells her to do things and she does them. She is infuriated because he makes her try to talk to other people about their problems.
Now, she has claimed to not know anything about the people she talks to, but the problems that she God tells her about are always there with them.
Now allow me to shine some history here:
>Use to have turrets until God healed her
>Later had a car crash and died
>During her death she remembers being held down and not able to move only hearing "unforgiven" over and over and a light in the distance
Now, gentlemen, what has happened to her? How do we explain these phenomenons?
OR, if a lengthy response isn't your thing I would gladly accept any resources I could read to learn more on these topics.
I'm really interested in what might be wrong with her since I've never met anyone who HONESTLY believed these things were happening. (And the searching I have done has brought no decent answers).
Web of Knowledge

I recently found out that my university has access to a resource called the web of knowledge - a really useful tool for browsing science journals and other publications. I hadn't even heard of it before.
The citations are all hyperlinked, and each publication will have a list of publications that has also cited that particular publication; making it incredibly easy to get a quick overview of the recent research that's been going on in a particular field.
The only downside is, it seems to be like a academic circlejerk. Only academic institutions are given access, so you'll have to check to see if your uni/college/whatever has a subscription.
You can do that here:
I'm not sure if this is a well-known thing, but I thought I might help a few people out by posting this here.

What the fuck is up with these people? Do they actually believe what they're saying or is this some sort of a joke?
And it's not like this is the only video. You've got tons of high ranking officials talking about this shit and thousands of videos of conferences like this one. Personally I feel like this is all a giant prank since, if there are aliens here then why the _fuck_ would they be hiding and collaborating with governments? That's so stupid it hurts my brain. Why would a species that has advanced to the point where they can basically break rules of physics to get here, want to have anything to do with us? They would either destroy us or, you know, ignore us.
Care to elaborate, /sci/? Are all these people wackos or are they actually trying to get some truth across, however unlikely? What the fuck is up with all these talks?

This might belong on /adv/, but I'm not quite sure. I was thinking about maybe learning some computer science via self-study, and was wondering what the best way of approaching this was? I was thinking watching khan academy, but in terms of a book, what does /sci/ recommend? I'm a bio guy, so I've never really gotten into comp sci, but it seems interesting and couldn't hurt to at least try it.
Any help is appreciated.
