By Alec Meer on March 15th, 2011 at 5:32 pm. You could play Minecraft right now, very, very easily. What you couldn’t play at all easily is a very special – unique, even – version of Minecraft known as Chain World. A game you could, even if you had the chance, play only once. A game only a very few people will ever play, and a game no-one who hasn’t played it will ever be told the details of. You can know of it, but you will probably never know it. The Cult of Minecraft: Chain World

The Limits of Understanding This statement is false. Think about it, and it makes your head hurt. If it’s true, it’s false. If it’s false, it’s true. In 1931, Austrian logician Kurt Gödel shocked the worlds of mathematics and philosophy by establishing that such statements are far more than a quirky turn of language: he showed that there are mathematical truths which simply can’t be proven. In the decades since, thinkers have taken the brilliant Gödel’s result in a variety of directions—linking it to limits of human comprehension and the quest to recreate human thinking on a computer.
Gene-centered view of evolution The gene-centered view of evolution, gene selection theory, or selfish gene theory holds that adaptive evolution occurs through the differential survival of competing genes, increasing the frequency of those alleles whose phenotypic effects successfully promote their own propagation, with gene defined as "not just one single physical bit of DNA [but] all replicas of a particular bit of DNA distributed throughout the world". The proponents of this viewpoint argue that, since heritable information is passed from generation to generation almost exclusively by genetic material, natural selection and evolution are best considered from the perspective of genes. This is in contrast to the organism-centered viewpoint adopted historically by biologists. Proponents of the gene-centered viewpoint argue that it permits understanding of diverse phenomena such as altruism and intragenomic conflict that are otherwise difficult to explain from an organism-focused perspective.
Much of the brain is still mysterious to modern science, possibly because modern science itself is using brains to analyze it. There are probably secrets the brain simply doesn't want us to know. But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want. We can't vouch for any of these, either their effectiveness or safety. All we can say is that they sound awesome, since apparently you can make your brain... 5 Ways To Hack Your Brain Into Awesomeness

How to Use the Rule of 72 Edit Article Exponential growthEstimating exponential decayDoubling Time Chart Edited by DifuWu, Garshepp, Flickety, Daniel and 9 others The rule of 72 is a handy rule used in finance to estimate quickly the number of years it takes to double a sum of capital given an annual interest rate, or to estimate the annual interest rate it takes to double a sum of money over a given number of years. The rule states that interest percentage times the number of years it takes to double a principal amount of money is approximately equal to 72. The Rule of 72 is applicable in exponential growth (as in compound interest) or in exponential decay.
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia The History of Sexuality is the title of a three-volume series of books by French philosopher and historian Michel Foucault written in 1976. Originally published in French, the volumes are individually titled The Will to Knowledge (Histoire de la sexualité, 1: la volonte de savoir), The Use of Pleasure (Histoire de la sexualite, II: l'usage des plaisirs), and The Care of the Self (Histoire de la sexualité, III: le souci de soi). The book seems to be influenced, among other works, by Sigmund Freud's Civilization and Its Discontents and Herbert Marcuse's Eros and Civilization. Three volumes of The History of Sexuality were published before Foucault's death in 1984. The History of Sexuality

"She is triple, according to mythology: a girl and a boy hide their heads behind her back. Her left hand lies on a book of magic; her left foot is extended. She is attended by a thistle-eating ass, the mournful owl of false wisdom, the head of a crocodile (blood-thirsty hypocrisy), and a cat-headed bat." The Night of Enitharmon's Joy

A Grand Unified Theory (GUT) is a model in particle physics in which at high energy, the three gauge interactions of the Standard Model which define the electromagnetic, weak, and strong interactions, are merged into one single interaction characterized by one larger gauge symmetry and thus one unified coupling constant. During the grand unification epoch, the gauge force separated from the gravitational force. Models that do not unify all interactions using one simple Lie group as the gauge symmetry, but do so using semisimple groups, can exhibit similar properties and are sometimes referred to as Grand Unified Theories as well.
