The Book of Trees: 800 Years of Visualizing Science, Religion, and Knowledge in Symbolic Diagrams. By Maria Popova How the humble tree became our most powerful visual metaphor for organizing information and distilling our understanding of the world.

The Book of Trees: 800 Years of Visualizing Science, Religion, and Knowledge in Symbolic Diagrams

Why is it that when we behold the oldest living trees in the world, primeval awe runs down our spine? We are entwined with trees in an elemental embrace, both biological and symbolic, depending on them for the very air we breathe as well as for our deepest metaphors, millennia in the making.

Tree of Life

Crazy Maps Show The World Organized By Human Activity. Ever since Gerardus Mercator created his iconic map of the world in 1569--the one that first enabled ships to navigate at sea without getting lost--people have been drawing maps using the same fundamental concept of conveying physical space.

Crazy Maps Show The World Organized By Human Activity

Cartographers have gotten more sophisticated over time. They’ve figured out how to distort that space, how to portray that Massachusetts has more electoral votes than Wyoming, or that countries closer to the equator are larger than we think. But for hundreds of years, we’ve been tethered to the idea of looking at the world through the shape of its land. Now that there’s virtually none of that left to explore and discover, it may be time to start thinking about our world in new visual ways: not according to physical space, but to how people are distributed across it, and what their presence can tell us about global poverty, health inequality, environmental impacts, and geopolitics.

Watch A Stunning Video Of Humanity's Effect On Earth. According to scientists, we’re currently in the geological epoch known as the Holocene, which has lasted for the last 12,000 years.

Watch A Stunning Video Of Humanity's Effect On Earth

The Holocene encompasses the rise of humanity since the last ice age. But some scientists think we have actually entered a new era, called the Anthropocene--an era in which the world no longer shapes humanity, but in which humanity shapes the world to its own purpose and does so to such an extent that it will have permanent effects of the geological record of our planet. As scientists debate the merits of declaring we are in a new epoch (these things take time and lots of arguing), humanity plods on, continuing to make a massive impact on the planet. Globaia, an organization devoted to promoting an understanding of "big history," has been working on mapping these impacts. Home.

" James T. Costa "The Theory of Darwinian Evolution, which continues to be refined by thousands of scientists working around the world, is the basis for the entire field of modern biology. Today it is one of the most important concepts in science and probably in the history of human thought. " John Kress “(The Origin is) a truly great book, one which after a century of scientific progress, can still be read with profit by professional biologists.” Darwin Online: Darwin's Publications.

Merrylin Cryptid collection

Merrylin Cryptid collection is the study and documentation of the evolution and biology of unclassified species and research pertaining to prehistoric human and non human civilization. In 2006, a trust was set up to analyze and collate a huge number of wooden crates found sealed in the basement of a London townhouse that was due to be demolished. Evolution.
