Light. Low light. Essence.

It was a puzzle about birds.

Migratory birds are known to rely on Earth’s magnetic field to help them navigate the globe. And it was suspected that a protein called cryptochrome, which is sensitive to blue light, was making it possible for birds to do this.

Yet many of these animals are also known to migrate at night when there isn’t much light available. So it wasn’t clear how cryptochrome would function under these conditions in birds.

A new study led by UT Southwestern Medical Center in collaboration with SMU (Southern Methodist University), though, may have figured out the answer to that puzzle.

Researchers found that cryptochromes from migratory birds have evolved a mechanism that enhances their ability to respond to light, which can enable them to sense and respond to magnetic fields.

“We were able to show that the protein cryptochrome is extremely efficient at collecting and responding to low levels of light,” said SMU chemist Brian D. Zoltowski, who was one of the lead authors of a new study on the findings. (1)

There you go. They still use light.

But they can see light where we cannot.

There is nothing which is not what it is.

There is no one who does not what he does.

You are you. Birds are birds.

You cannot change your nature.

It is just that your nature is… flexible.

We are dancing in the cosmos. And no matter what we think we can do. We will always dance. Because we can. Because we are meant to dance. We think we do things. We trick our selfs into believing we can make things happen. How wrong are we. The music never stopped playing. And the more we do something, the more we stop listening…

In a world full of music, the only thing we can do is not dance.

And fall…

Octopuses’ arms. Universe’s brain.

How octopuses’ arms make decisions: Researchers studying the behavior and neuroscience of octopuses have long suspected that the animals’ arms may have minds of their own. A new model is the first attempt at a comprehensive representation of information flow between the octopus’s suckers, arms and brain, based on previous research in octopus neuroscience and behavior, and new video observations conducted in the lab. (1)

We tend to believe that we are the ones who think. (or our arms)

But we are not. (neither do our arms)

It is not is who try to understand the universe.

It is the universe which tries to make sense of us.

And with every step. With every touch. With every smell.

We allow it to touch us again.

Look at that octopus.

So weird. Moving towards us.

No. It doesn’t want to touch anyone.

You want to…

Forgiving. Hating. Loving.

When assessing the moral character of others, people cling to good impressions but readily adjust their opinions about those who have behaved badly, according to new research. This flexibility in judging transgressors might help explain both how humans forgive – and why they sometimes stay in bad relationships, said the study’s authors. (The research – conducted by psychologists at Yale, University of Oxford, University College London, and the International School for Advanced Studies – appeared in the journal Nature Human Behaviour)

“The brain forms social impressions in a way that can enable forgiveness,” said Yale psychologist Molly Crockett, senior author of the paper. “Because people sometimes behave badly by accident, we need to be able to update bad impressions that turn out to be mistaken. Otherwise, we might end relationships prematurely and miss out on the many benefits of social connection”. (1)

Modern humans. Lost humans.

Believing they do not forgive.

But that they are programmed to.

And yet, we once again see the wrong question.

Attaching it to the wrong answer.

If we are programmed to forgive.

We should not hate. And yet we do.

Look at all that hatred in peoples’ eyes.

There was never a better proof of love…

The power of minorities. Modern society. Interlinked.

A study finds that when 25 percent of people in a group adopt a new social norm, it creates a tipping point where the entire group follows suit. This shows the direct causal effect of the size of a committed minority on its capacity to create social change. (1)

Even the 1 can change the 10.

A small human can change the cosmos.

A cosmos can change existence.

Interconnected. Interlinked. Cells within cells within cells. Within cells interlinked. Within cells interlinked. Within cells interlinked.

Quantum sounds.

Quantum physics is on the brink of many technological breakthroughs. However, the main obstacle is finding the right way to couple and precisely control a sufficient number of quantum systems (e.g. individual atoms). A team of researchers from TU Wien and Harvard University has found a new way to manipulate the quantum universe via tiny mechanical vibrations.

“Normally, diamonds are made exclusively of carbon, but adding silicon atoms in certain places creates defects in the crystal lattice where quantum information can be stored”, says Professor Peter Rabl from TU Wien. These microscopic flaws in the crystal lattice can be used like a tiny switch that can be switched between a state of higher energy and a state of lower energy using microwaves.

Together with a team from Harvard University, Peter Rabl’s research group has developed a new idea to achieve the targeted coupling of quantum memories within the diamond. One by one they can be built into a tiny diamond rod measuring only a few micrometres in length. Then this rod can then be made to vibrate, however, these vibrations are so small that they can only be described using quantum theory. It is through these vibrations that the silicon atoms can form a quantum-mechanical link to each other. (1)

We are unique.

Simply by raising our voice.

Inside a silent cosmos.

And within that silence…

We become one with the universe.

Walking quietly inside the forest.

Being alone and yet full.

Inside a silent cosmos…

The leaves of the trees rustle…

Memories stored inside a diamond.

Eternal. Meaningless.

Stepping on the diamond.

Inside the dirt.

Open your mouth.

Trying to speak…

No sound coming out of your mouth…

The diamond shining more than ever within Earth’s bosom…
