In June 2009 I mapped the protests in Iran with fervor and anxiety. It is possibly the largest collection of public video and images tracking the protests almost minute-by-minute. They are all on Hypercities, a mapping platform developed by Dr. Todd Presner and his research group at UCLA Digital Humanities. The Arab Spring prompted me to...

Come visit us- We Give Style to Character (A Crystomeme Advert ) The song reached us before Someeven approached, by now we knew how to recognize his immense tetrahedral shape basking in its flamboyant colors. We still did not appreciate, however, that the changes to his melody were more than just fine-tuning his attentive-empathic cingulate...

"Oh, to be alive in such an age, when miracles are everywhere, and every inch of common air throbs a tremendous prophecy, of greater marvels yet to be." Walt Whitman And what marvels we have in front of our very own eyes! Marvels of technology and science we could not have foreseen but always desired, marvels of understanding and...

It's time to accelerate to process of moving away from everything that does nothing optimal for the freedom to understand this world.

The sad, sad demise of Greenpeace by Wilson da Silva GREENPEACE WAS ONCE a friend of science, helping bring attention to important but ignored environmental research. These days, it’s a ratbag rabble of intellectual cowards intent on peddling an agenda, whatever the scientific evidence.

The term metahuman is used in previous scifi for people that had mutations due to an external factor such as radiation or chemicals. A mutant was born that way. The latter could also be converted into cyborgs. A mutagen cal also be a virus. Genetic engineering can create a mutation almost immediately. Humans also use tools to survive longer which...

We will see a paradigm shift, possibly a world wide revolutionary change this year. Hand me pepper and salt to eat my shoe if it'll be 2012. It will be a very painful collapse, and we'll see the dollar and the euro become a wholly new currency. I am afraid, because I am vulnerable, but at the end of the day we all are. And while it will be...

Smarter animals recognize themself in a mirror. Others see their reflection and act like its another animal. They hide their food, get ready for a fight, or run away for example. Monkeys are smart enough to act based on where others are looking. They value 1 of 2 boxes higher if a person appears to value it, and more often choose to open that...

Everyone gets as few or as many votes as they want. Nobody needs to be identified because there is no limit on how many votes each person can create. How could such a system work? Why wouldn't people just vote millions of times? They may, but that won't give them more influence. Its not about the number of votes. Its about the patterns of...

Once we have surrendered our senses and nervous systems to the private manipulation of those who would try to benefit from taking a lease on our eyes and ears and nerves, we don’t really have any rights left. Leasing our eyes and ears and nerves to commercial interests is like handing over the common speech to a private corporation, or like...

The great enhancement debate
Animals live long and prosper when eating from a menu that puts them just this side of starvation. So far, experiments with yeast, worms, flies, spiders, fish and rodents all have shown the antiaging power of severely restricting calories. And research in rhesus monkeys suggests similar benefits in primates: One study found that monkeys eating 30...
