I’d like to follow each of these tutorials from SparkleyBelly.com to make a fun costume. I think it would have a pretty stunning result!
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…
On Drinking Alone by Moonlight
by Li Po (701 AD-762 AD)
Here are flowers and here is wine,
But where’s a friend with me to join
Hand in hand and heart to heart
In one full cup before we part?
Rather than to drink alone,
I’ll make bold to ask the moon
To condescend to lend her face
The hour and the scene to grace.
Lo, she answers, and she brings
My shadow on her silver wings;
That makes three, and we shall be.
I ween, a merry company
The modest moon declines the cup,
But shadow promptly takes it up,
And when I dance my shadow fleet
Keeps measure with my flying feet.
But though the moon declines to tipple
She dances in yon shining ripple,
And when I sing, my festive song,
The echoes of the moon prolong.
Say, when shall we next meet together?
Surely not in cloudy weather,
For you my boon companions dear
Come only when the sky is clear.”
