We’re Taught Not to Call Bullshit on Wildly Idiotic and Unimaginably Stupid Ideas!

leave a comment »

Modern society treats all ideas and opinions as valuable and worthy regardless how absurd so we don’t hurt individuals’ feelings. And because our children are taught not to call bullshit on wildly idiotic and unimaginably stupid ideas they are allowed to exist a persistent realm of fairy tales free from the bother of the real world and the deep logic and critical thinking skills required to navigate and understand it. Think sheep.

Listen. Learn. Forward.

As a species we need to get through and out of this hateful, angry trough the casts it’s oppressive shadow over every creative, critical thinking person on this planet of limited resources and disappearing borders.

Listen. Learn. Forward.

Go Forth Into The Storm Toward Freedom.

“In this year of the storm,
the winners will build windmills and the losers will raise shelters.
So flex your muscles, fellow pirates, and give power to us all!
Build more sites! More nets! More protocols!
Scream louder than ever and take it to the next level!”

Possibilianism. A Way Out of the New Dark Ages.

leave a comment »

Kevin Kelly wrote after watching the video:

Agnostics end with the lack of an answer.
Possibilians begin with the lack of an answer.

Agnostics say, we can’t decide between this and that.
Possibilians say, there are other choices than this or that.

Agnostics say, I Don’t Know, it’s impossible to answer that question.
Possibilians say, I Don’t Know, there must be better questions.

Both start in humility, but agnosticism is bounded by our great ignorance, while possibilism is unbounded by our limited knowledge.

I think that both Dr. David Eagleman (Neuroscientist) and Kevin Kelly have shown a possible way out of the polarized and mean-spirited conversation that has captured and continues to torture mainstream America.

Molecular Imaging

leave a comment »

singlemoleculeimaged

The detailed chemical structure of a single molecule has been imaged for the first time, say researchers.

The physical shape of single carbon nanotubes has been outlined before, using similar techniques – but the new method even shows up chemical bonds. (The bonds to the hydrogen atoms can be seen at the pentacene’s periphery)
