Life. Multiverses. Humans.
The Multiverse theory, introduced in the 1980s, can explain the “luckily small” amount of dark energy in our Universe that enabled it to host life, among many universes that could not. Using huge computer simulations of the cosmos, research has found that adding dark energy, up to a few hundred times the amount observed in […]
Electricity and memory. Time and timelessness. [Questioning the obvious]
Electrical stimulation delivered when memory is predicted to fail can improve memory function in the human brain, a team of neuroscientists shows for the first time. That same stimulation generally becomes disruptive when electrical pulses arrive during periods of effective memory function. (1) We stimulate and see memory improving. We do thing and see results. […]
The fascism of scientism has a name: Richard Dawkins… “The state needs to ‘protect’ children from religion and their… parents” (!)

So why don’t we live forever – why age at all? There have been numerous attempts to understand how and why we age – as recently […]
