Clothes are people’s extended skin, wheels extended feet, camera and telescope extended eyes. Out technological creations are extrapolations of the bodies that our genes build. In this way, we can think of technology as our extended body. If technology is an extension of humans, it is not an extension of our genes but our minds.

Technology is the exoskeleton of ideas.

The brain presents two seemingly irreconcilable aspects: It is a material body, exhibiting all the physical properties of matter, and it possesses a set of faculties and attributes, collectively called mind, that are not found in any other physical system. Erich Harth- Windows of the Mind, 1982 (via houseofmind)

Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean. Neil deGrasse Tyson in response to “Aliens can’t exist because we haven’t found them yet” (via we-are-star-stuff)

The universe slowly burns an image of itself in your brain

You use your frontal cortex to navigate this mirror image of everything

But based upon who dictated the contours of the universe

And where your vantage point of existence is

The shape of our universe changes

This is not to say that the universe does not have one true shape

Or one true existence of what is

It is just to say that there are many angles

And none of us will ever be an exact image of the universe

Science provides the truth and helps better shape the mind as it should be

to know that the sculpted physiochemical mass betwixt your ears

is just a fancy reflection fitted with reflexes and refraction

a machine made of tissue

made of cells

made of molecules

made of chemicals

made of elements

made of atomic particles

made of sub atomic particles

which are just condensed energy

you and everyone you know are reflections of your parents

which are reflections of the world

which is really just energy

think of this

you and everyone you know are mostly empty space and energy

just like the universe

everyone being their individual snowflakes

all melt the same

our decay is birth renewed for another part of the universe

we are nothing in the scale of the galaxies

but we are everything on the scale of the universe

this fractal duality of purpose and non-importance

shapes mens actions from cradle to grave

higher goals and bloodshed for conquest all in the name to conquer nothing

which is still everything

there was suffering for you to be and there will be many untold sufferings to come

are you worth the sacrifices to be?

Is your life worth all the prior lives that were piled up for you to stand on?

Will this vantage point of knowing that you are everything and nothing all at once go to waste?

That I do not know

Only you,

Universe,

Know that answer.

A cool chart of America’s movie critics from Vocativ.
Peter Travers has already blurbed it, saying “One of the most stunning…charts I’ve ever seen. A monument of American viral-graphic-making.”

The quest for knowledge and understanding never gets dull. It’s actually the opposite; the more you know, the more amazing the world seems. It’s the crazy possibilities, the unanswered questions that pull us forward. Chris Anderson, Why can’t we see evidence of alien life? (via we-are-star-stuff)

nobody seems to care much about these guys, yet your arm would swell up without them — there’s just enough net fluid leak from capillaries to cause problems in the absence of another set of pipes to return that transudate to the circulatory system

First prize in Science’s Visualization Challenge (video category) went to this NASA video by Greg Shirah, Horace Mitchell, and Tom Bridgman. It shows Earth’s “climate engine” — the wind patterns and ocean currents that are powered by the sun.

Disparate matches of memory

will recreate me

in discordant batches of time

I will seem to taste the eternal

in my endless reverberation of pasts 

radiating into new futures

whether I play bit parts in someones sonder

or the main prism through which they view a fractal

my role will be outsized and underrepresented 

but each of these fragments of existence

rebirths me

as if some melody or cacophony 

that just can’t be shook

our beings dance eternal in all directions

in magnitudes we are unable to grasp

every action

every single inaction

makes another ripple

makes waves,

so I propose

with all this splashing about

that you

get dirty,

be weird

do good

work hard

 because positive motion creates positive feedback

be mindful of your messes and precise in your words

leave the best pattern you can

and you will

relive

forever in other’s emulations
