    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    That is a quite risky post since this is my third one and I don't speak English as my first language.

    There is a writer/philosopher that some of you may be familiar with named John N. Gray. He is pretty much a provocateur, however he is on the same time a great thinker and have some interesting approach about the humankind behaviour.

    One of his books (my favourite of his books) is called Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals and has a very pessimist view of humankind for many, however I do think he has got a very clear view what life is about and how our society is organised nowadays, which make this book a very interesting reading for many of us.

    It is a bit nihilist, which sometimes is good to put things in perspective.
