2001 Space Odyssey: Aftershocks

Gravitational waves are the almost aftershocks from an interstellar collision of black holes. I use the Aftershock analogy because they are remnant ripples from this collision. Einstein first predicted this over a hundred years ago, and with today’s technology we can get a better idea of how to measure these waves. LIGO equipment we useContinue reading “2001 Space Odyssey: Aftershocks”

I’m not “special”, I’m S.P.E.C.I.A.L.

Now before that title makes anyone feel offended, and or implies a negative perception, let me explain. What I mean about “I’m not “special”, I’m S.P.E.C.I.A.L.”, Firstly calls back to a videogame series I love, called Fallout. Look it up if you want to know more. But basically the term S.P.E.C.I.A.L infers to the sevenContinue reading “I’m not “special”, I’m S.P.E.C.I.A.L.”

Money, Power, its all the same.

Corporations that are responsible for many of the carbon emissions on this planet such as Exxon Mobil, fund organizations and various think tanks such as the Cato Institute, to demote and oppose climate science. They do this to primarily stay in business and from what we saw in the documentary Merchants of Doubt, people inContinue reading “Money, Power, its all the same.”

Controversy, Hystaria, and Simply Science.

After reading Swartz and Reidy’s articles, the statement “You’ll often hear from climate contrarians that climate science is still in its infancy, too young to be reliable.” Isn’t necessarily true, as that besides time alone the controversial science behind climate change shows us evidence such as that from the Reidy article, Tyndall found that carbonContinue reading “Controversy, Hystaria, and Simply Science.”

“Yeah Mr. White, SCIENCE!” And how science effects us.

The Scientific Revolution brought us into a new circling style of life. Science provides with new knowledge, that knowledge is used to gain power, and that power provides more opportunities for resources. The cycle begins as those new resources feed more scientific research. Harari illustrates this in his book on page 250. This important toContinue reading ““Yeah Mr. White, SCIENCE!” And how science effects us.”

We have money, power, metal, god, and sharp sticks!

Harari’s words on “The Unification of Humankind” is an interesting count of events from where we left off in the previous chapter. Going from the ideas of the cognitive revolution to the start of the agricultural revolution, humankind has moved from their way of life being based on evolution to now elements and power inContinue reading “We have money, power, metal, god, and sharp sticks!”

“Big Brain” vs the perfect brain.

To start this wonderful topic of pulsing grey matter, I think we should take another look at the social term “Big Brain”. Although this term insinuates that the person it being directed to is being really smart, it actually isn’t the size of our brain that makes the difference, its how well developed and connectedContinue reading ““Big Brain” vs the perfect brain.”
