They are about Science, Consciousness, ETs, you name it. A smorgasbord of fascinating subjects to learn about. If you find a dead link please let us know and we will find another to replace it. Enjoy! 1. "The Man Who Runs The World's Smartest Website" (in The Observer) Since the mid-1960s John Brockman has been at the cutting edge of ideas.

"The Man Who Runs The World's Smartest Website" (in The Observer)

He is a passionate advocate of both science and the arts, and his website Edge is a salon for the world's finest minds To say that John Brockman is a literary agent is like saying that David Hockney is a photographer. For while it's true that Hockney has indeed made astonishingly creative use of photography, and Brockman is indeed a successful literary agent who represents an enviable stable of high-profile scientists and communicators, in both cases the description rather understates the reality.

Hand Facts: News about hands! Scientists simulated the change of the primate hand into the human hand.

Hand Facts: News about hands!

Scientists may have solved the mystery of how human hands became nimble enough to make and manipulate stone tools. The team reports in the journal Evolution that changes in our hands and fingers were a side-effect of changes in the shape of our feet. This, they say, shows that the capacity to stand and walk on two feet is intrinsically linked to the emergence of stone tool technology. The scientists used a mathematical model to simulate the changes. Other researchers, though, have questioned this approach. HAND LINES - The primate hand vs. the human hand: palmar creases & skeletons!

These observations partly explain why in humans the 'single palmar transverse crease' has been nicknamed as the 'simian crease' - the 'simian' is a synonym for an ape or monkey. But while the 'simian crease' is rare in humans, far most primates actually have multiple likewise creases that fully cross (transverse) theirs palms. The photos below present an impression from the hand lines in a human hand and a few more impressions from the hands of the great apes. Hand lines, an impression from a human hand.

Each region is closer to a particular airport than any other. This partitioning of the sphere is called a spherical Voronoi diagram, and was calculated by d3.geo.voronoi, which is currently under development.

En una simulación que empieza muy poco después del Big Bang y que se extiende hasta la actualidad, astrónomos y expertos informáticos han conseguido la mayor aproximación hasta la fecha a la realidad observable del Universo.

Spiritual Science - Spiritual Science - Homepage. Sankhyakarika. The miracle of a perpetually dynamic Universe is enabled when two opposing factors in an interactive state occur simultaneously.


Compression and expansion are two opposing activities but when it takes place simultaneously, activity time is conserved and the dynamic state continues. The theoretical clue, lacking in Physics and Cosmology is the numerical algorithm that defines the threshold of simultaneously interactive states, which is also the key to gravitation phenomena. Newtons gravity constant and the fine structure constant are an approximation of precise axiomatic ratios that governs all phenomena in the Universe.

It has long been known that the three most important factors determining real estate value are: location, location, location.

Secrets In Plain Sight

I notice that this aphorism is true not only for residential and commercial properties, but also somewhat unexpectedly for sites having great symbolic and/or spiritual significance. My research reveals a previously unknown system of non-monetary valuation transcending any particular culture, tradition, or time period that takes the entire Earth and the built environment into account.

Repdigits and transcendental mathematical constants are the keys to locating sites in this system. For example, consider the fact that the Western Wall in Jerusalem is 666.6 nautical miles from the Kaaba in Mecca. Museum of Harmony and Golden Section - StumbleUpon.
