In human world, we are often bounded by various identities. There are not just names, but also tons of other terms in relation to multiple fields and occasions. We do not just identify ourselves but also our dwelling nature by giving names to anything we see, smell, touch, and hear. However, our identification and classification are so messy that...

This manifesto is a few years old. In the years since Crystalpunk has organized workshops, and events as well as written a lot of texts and code that hopes to explain the vision. This is still the most basic text Crystalpunk has to explain what we are trying to do and I think it might be of interest to the readers of SpaceCollective. THE...

...rarely drink water. Instead, they have a highly water-efficient metabolism (their kidneys are at least four times more efficient at retaining water and excreting salt than those of humans) and manufacture water through a metabolic process called oxidative phosphorylation. One special feature of the kangaroo rat is the animal's efficient...

I've been watching a lot of speeches from TED.com lately, and I've been tremendously inspired by their positive energy in a time that the media would paint as rather daunting. I hope to do something with my life as good as those noble people at TED are doing. As good as they are, it is difficult to criticize the people of TED, aka...

Adolf Loos' Ornament and Crime holds a favourite ammunition of mine in defense of immateriality: I have therefore evolved the following maxim, and pronounce it to the world: the evolution of culture marches with the elimination of ornament from useful objects. How would I define what ornament is today? Ornament, a constant in decoration culture,...

To imagine: in a few years we'll have people regularly living and working on the moon. And, someday, hopefully not too far off, the possibility of humans living on more than one planet for the first time in this history... how far we've come for monkeys with hats.

Evolutionary biologist Neil Shubin writes: "Within each of us — our skeletons, our behavior, and deep within our DNA — lurks our distant past. Make the relevant comparisons and we find that our hands resemble fossil fish fins, our heads are organized like long-extinct jawless fish, and major parts of our genomes look and function...

I keep driving around and looking at all the advertisements everywhere. And they are everywhere. Billboards, signs, bumper stickers, benches, bus shelters, buildings, cars, trucks, people. Driving through any neighborhood I'm instantly immersed in whatever is popular or should be popular there--maybe twenty years ago. That's perhaps the most...

I'd like to propose a collective recommended reading list, and in beginning this list I'll paraphrase the first page of my first recommendation. It's from a book called "The Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb: Many people, when they see an immense...
