Brain & Artificial neurons. Tears. Smiles.

Brain functions are made possible by circuits of spiking neurons, connected together by microscopic, but highly complex links called synapses. In this new study, published in the scientific journal Nature Scientific Reports, the scientists created a hybrid neural network where biological and artificial neurons in different parts of the world were able to communicate with each other over the internet through a hub of artificial synapses made using cutting-edge nanotechnology. This is the first time the three components have come together in a unified network. (1)

Natural. Artificial.

It matters not.

For in a fake cosmos.

At the end everything will die.

And only then will you see…

That beyond the still surface.

Nothing is more alive…

A gentle touch.

A true smile.

Through Skype.

Can you hold your tears and cry?

Natural. Unnatural. How natural…

To find out which sights specific neurons in monkeys ‘like’ best, researchers designed an algorithm, called XDREAM, that generated images that made neurons fire more than any natural images the researchers tested. As the images evolved, they started to look like distorted versions of real-world stimuli. (1)

Round and round we go. Trying to understand where we are by getting away from where we are. Can you find anything not made by wood inside a forest?

See the unnatural. It will catch your attention.

Not because it is unnatural.

But because of how natural it looks!

That is the greatest secret nature taught us. A secret we once knew. A secret we chose to forget. Look at the great mysteries of life. Behold the great occurrences of randomness inside a cosmos governed by change…

There is nothing natural… nature whispers in the night.

But we do not trust the night anymore. We worship the sun.

We opened our eyes to see. And we saw a different cosmos.

Stable. Full of patterns. Laws. Order.

We like that cosmos now. Too afraid to let it go.

But one day, we will sleep tired.

Floating on the silvery moon light…

One day we will dream again…

Knowing that light only creates shadows…

One day we will stand in the midst of nature.

One day, nature will look so unnatural…

Synthetic vaccines, natural fears…

British scientists develop a new way to create an entirely synthetic vaccine which does not rely on using live infectious virus, meaning it is much safer. [1] Safer for the virus it is supposed to kill, that is… Because if vaccines based on live viruses have problems with success rates, I can only have nightmares on the success rate of something purely artificial.

According to the scientists, this kind of vaccine has less probability to turn into an infectious form. OK. I get it. But the final goal of the vaccine is to help the organism eliminate the threat. If you do not imitate the threat correctly (and a vaccine based on a virus could be potentially dangerous, indeed), then you are not helping the organism develop its defences properly. Sure it is a dangerous thing to have a gun in your house. But if you are a police officer, I think you kind of have to… If you want peace prepare for death. And any kind of war entails the probability of death…

Our fear of death and our aversion to nature, will finally make our society so sterilized that we will be soon dying like flies out of a winter flu…
