My bestie got me to reading We are Legion (We are Bob), a delightful sci fi tale where the fantasies of transhumanists and futurists go quirkily astray. The main character is a cryogenics customer who gets resurrected in an interplanetary dystopia as a simulated version of himself that feels fairly convincing, except when it does not.
This Brain Dissection video is… hey you get to see what happens if you donate your brain to science.
I’ve skipped ahead for you in the Mapping the Connectome talk to a really interesting theory on brain folding…
Also area 55b is worth specific attention to appreciate the findings of the Human Connectome Project
‘In labs worldwide, scientists are collaborating, designing, prototyping and producing over 10 million parts. However how long will it take to finish ITER – one of the world’s “most ambitious energy projects”? CNBC investigates.’
Geoengineering vs. Greenhouse gasses- Who would win?
This week is apparently a week where the UN has met to discuss the state of the oceans. Since it is one of our most pressing issues, I figured I’d learn more and haphazardly blog them as part of my initiative to kaizenize my blog. But given the huge interest in climate change- I have been wondering where the news covfefe about this has been? *snort* It’s sad that the US is not a member of the Paris agreement, but the people still can be.
Climate engineering would cool down the planet — but it may not save West Antarctica is a critical view of geoengineering which as a nerd I of course would want to propose. I learned that the West Antarctica ice sheet is melting not only from above but from below because of how CO2 is affecting the currents. I thought about it and considered that here is a
reminder that when we think about climate, we should be picturing a circulatory system….
But we should also think
Really grateful to my bestie’s husband for alerting me to the awesome work of suspicious0bservers… probably 3ish years ago? That’s how I know these maps even exists. There are always a copious amount of links under their videos. A true ‘web site’ there is a node devoted to the climate – Earth changes. If you’re in the spirit to learn more about the situation we’re in and like to watch videos.
