Listening to music. Humans. Apes.

In the eternal search for understanding what makes us human, scientists found that our brains are more sensitive to pitch, the harmonic sounds we hear when listening to music, than our evolutionary relative the macaque monkey. The study, funded in part by the National Institutes of Health, highlights the promise of Sound Health, a joint project between the NIH and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts that aims to understand the role of music in health.

“We found that a certain region of our brains has a stronger preference for sounds with pitch than macaque monkey brains,” said Bevil Conway, Ph.D., investigator in the NIH’s Intramural Research Program and a senior author of the study published in Nature Neuroscience. “The results raise the possibility that these sounds, which are embedded in speech and music, may have shaped the basic organization of the human brain.” (1)

Yes, we are the only ones listening to music.

Because our mind is never here.

We love traveling to the stars.

Only because we detest the Earth on which we were born.

We will learn one day.

When we reach the stars.

That those bright small dots we will see.

Is our home.

Which we have left a long time ago…

Earth’s core. Human souls.

A new study could help us understand how our planet was formed. Scientists report that their research shows that Earth’s inner core is solid – a finding made possible by a new method for detecting shear waves, or ‘J waves’ in the inner core. (1)

We believe that pressure creates solids.

That diamonds are the hardest material on Earth.

But the hearts of humans are made out of thin air.

Soft, airy and non-binding. Light and flexible.

Dare not to underestimate them.

Cause it is these humans who are the core of Earth.

Those humans giving diamonds their shinning.

Those humans making the Earth move in the vast space.

This was not always like this.

In the beginning this was a lonely inanimate planet.

Full of diamonds.

Full of growing trees

Full of flying bees.

Until someone discarded than diamond in the dirt…

Until someone saw that tree falling…

Until someone cried for that bee dying…

And the cosmos exploded into thin air…

Rain…

The fourth planet from the sun, Mars has geological features like the Earth and moon, such as craters and valleys, many of which were formed through rainfall. Although there is a growing body of evidence that there was once water on Mars, it does not rain there today.

But in their new study, geologists Dr. Robert Craddock and Dr. Ralph Lorenz show that there was rainfall in the past – and that it was heavy enough to change the planet’s surface. To work this out, they used methods tried and tested here on Earth, where the erosive effect of the rain on the Earth’s surface has important impacts on agriculture and the economy. (1)

Mars used to be a living planet.

But not because rain shaped its valleys.

Earth is a living planet.

Again, not because rain shapes its mountains.

But because poets write about the rain.

Because people sing in the rain.

Because men and women like to just walk in the rain…

Take a good look at that little red dot in the sky.

It was not always red.

You painted it that way…

Keep looking.

Don’t mind the rain.

Stealing seeds. Digging earth…

Earlier this month, a federal court indicted a Chinese national for trying to steal GMO corn technology from DuPont, Monsanto, and AgReliant Genetics. The scientist’s arrest is just the latest in a series of indictments against six other people linked to a Beijing seed-development company called Dabeinong Technology Group Co. The FBI alleges the Dabeinong staff were part of a years-long seed collection effort that sometimes involved some low-tech methods. Science magazine reports:

The U.S.-based defendants roamed rural Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa in rental cars, digging up corn seedlings, stealing ears of corn, and stealing or illegally obtaining packaged seed, according to court documents. In 2011, a DuPont Pioneer field manager spotted one alleged thief on his knees digging in a field, as a collaborator waited in a nearby parked car. (1)

Patenting seeds…
How civilized…
We have patented everything. And now we look ridiculous.

Haidegger called for going back to the mother Earth.
As so many wise men before him.
But not like this.
The Earth is not our own.
Quite the opposite: WE are hers.

We must start digging with our hands.
We must start being dirty.
So that we clean up from all our sins…

All the seeds we need, are already in us.
Waiting to flourish.
Walk in the woods barefooted.
And you will feel that something magical transcends the cosmos.
And it surely is NOT the seeds of Monsanto…

Robots test their own world wide web, dubbed RoboEarth.

RoboEarth. Human Earth!

A world wide web for robots to learn from each other and share information is being shown off for the first time. Scientists behind RoboEarth will put it through its paces at Eindhoven University in a mocked-up hospital room.

Four robots will use the system to complete a series of tasks, including serving drinks to patients. It is the culmination of a four-year project, funded by the European Union. The eventual aim is that both robots and humans will be able to upload information to the cloud-based database, which would act as a kind of common brain for machines. (1)

We humans used to have that too. We used to understand each other. We used to be interconnected. And we gave all that up for being interconnected with fake FB profiles and bots.

Let’s just hope that our creations will not follow our example…

Every child should be better than its parent…

A machine in the Internet, a human in the woods. Everything is natural. Harmony is to be preserved. Soon nature will take its way. Soon the forest will echo again with human laughter… Human Earth will rise again!
