Forget Planet 9 - There's Evidence of a Tenth Planet Lurking at the Edge of the Solar System

A Mars-sized planet appears to be lurking at the edge of the solar system, scientists have announced.

Harvard scientists are beginning to provide answers to one of the thorniest questions in psychology: How do we think? Human thought generally can be divided into two modes, the visual and the verbal.

If you’re thinking what you’ll say when you make a presentation at work, you’re likely thinking in words and sentences, creating inner speech.
