An email my brother Michael Anissimov sent to me in response to the three rant clips posted toward The Great Enhancement Debate, with short response commentary by myself:
Haha interesting. Was this from that one interview with your friend's dad? Great to get these ideas out there for people to debate, I'll post these videos on my blog. ...
Dream are cool.
have you heard of lucid dreaming?
It's when you become aware that you are dreaming and are able to control it. I have only experienced this twice in my life when I was much younger, around age 10 or so. I don't remember much of the dream now but I do remember the feeling of amazement and excitement for the next time I got...

bonobo - pick up
The Tunguska event is the largest impact event in recent history. An explosion of this magnitude had the potential to devastate large metropolitan areas had it occurred over a large city. This possibility has helped to spark discussion of asteroid deflection strategies.
The Open Mind Believer
I describe myself to myself and myself to others as an open and free mind, and quite often when asked to explain this narrative I say that I am a great believer.
It is kind of circular I know; yet to really define what is an open and free mind I must refer to this most primal of human motivations, namely...
Enter: The Transbeing
Frank Herbert wrote that: “The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.” And of course who in his true and integrated mind will not agree to this statement?
So let us start or begin our knowledge of the coming singularity by observing the prediction wall that is in front of us, the...
Documenting Graphic Language
I'm going to post on this space a series of graphic design work that I think is relevant to be documented. I started with Lou Dorfsman's work.
The idea is post relevant images that exemplify how the terrestrials communicate apart from vocal language.
So I was browsing through the gallery on this site, trying as best I could to avoid studying for exams and whatnot, when I came across the Hydrozoa Picture Gallery. I started scrolling down the page looking at all of the stunning images when I realized, wow, there are a lot of hydrozoa out there...
If there are this many different types of,...
As the Secretary General of the United Nations, an organization of 147 member states who represent almost all the human inhabitants of the planet earth, I send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out of our solar system, into the universe, seeking only peace and friendship, to teach if we are called upon, to be taught if...
Very little is known about how these clouds form over the poles, why they are being seen more frequently and at lower latitudes than ever before, or why they have been growing brighter.
This is the beginning of the Now and the Next. With the official birth of SpaceCollective today, a new opportunity emerges to circumvent the past and the hackneyed. I welcome this new space in the blogoverse as a place to boldly crack open the future with other like minded individuals and to see the raw potential of what is to come. Viva...

A poem I wrote a while back. Inspired by a handout from a Physics class entitled "Physics & Astronomy For Pedestrians" ... yeah my uni has the funniest classes!...
