thunderbolts of the Gods [Archive] - Cosmoquest Forum Without reading the book I cannot say much but it seems pretty far out to me. I would like to know how they try to prove this theory. Seems to me that is the planets were "looming" over us, then we would be subjected to intense gravitational tides, Radiation, dodging their moons etc. I would also be interested in seeing how they attemt to explain why the planets are in far orbits. As far as multiple cultures having similarities in their lore goes, well remember, it is threorized we all migrated out of Africa back in the day.

Sony Font Hack: How to Change Fonts on a Sony Reader This post will explain how to add different fonts to any Sony Reader and how to override the CSS file in a DRM-free ebook to display those fonts. For DRM encrypted ebooks you have to strip the DRM for this method to work. It only takes a few minutes to get this up and going if you already have Calibre installed on your computer. If not, you’ll need to start with this post: getting started with Calibre. This Sony font hack comes via this PDF from the good folks at the MobileRead forums.

Cyberpunk William Gibson's Sprawl trilogy novels are famous early cyberpunk novels. Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a future setting, noted for its focus on "high tech and low life".[1][2] It features advanced technology and science, such as information technology and cybernetics, coupled with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.[3] Classic cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, an ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body.—Lawrence Person[7] Style and ethos[edit]

Top 50 Dystopian Movies of All Time Massive dehumanization, totalitarian government, rampant disease, post-apocalyptic terrains, cyber-genetic technologies, societal chaos and widespread urban violence are some of the common themes in dystopian films which bravely examine the ominous shadow cast by future. A dystopia is a fictional society that is the antithesis or complete opposite of a utopia, an ideal world with a perfect social, political and technological infrastructure. A world without chaos, strife or hunger. A world where the individual potential and freedom is celebrated and brought to the forefront. generators Charybdis is designed to simulate the production and decay of black holes in hadron collider experiments, according to theories with TeV-scale gravity and extra spatial dimensions. The production of the black hole is assumed to take place with a basically geometrical cross section. The decay then takes place via Hawking radiation using the D-dimensional grey-body factors. There is now a new version of Charybdis including many new physics features which can be obtained here and we recommend for all new physics studies. If you use the code please reference

The Tesla Mystique Nikola Tesla, The Philadelphia Experiment, HAARP and Other Folklore Article by George B. Trinkaus, © 2008. Republished with permission. The Borderland of Science This day being July 10, 2012, we take a moment now to mark the birth of Nikola Tesla, a man who is known by many for his work in the development of Alternating Current, for his quirks of character, for being an “enemy” of Thomas Edison, and for being a vampire on a science-fiction television program. Hailed as a “geek icon”, Tesla may be more well-known today than any time since his death, but how many are interested in the work he was actually pioneering on the borderland of science, work that is now largely relegated to the fringe? While we may applaud his development of alternating current and radio, or marvel at the effects of Tesla coils and plasma lamps, these must be seen as the beginnings, and not the ending, of what are Tesla’s great contributions to science and society, and there is much left to be learned from his research. As far as we appear to have come, there is further to go if we are to understand, recreate, and expand on the theories and technologies he envisioned.

Wikipop iPads and Visitor Metrics Now that Seductive Subversion has closed, it’s time to look at the Wikipop project and report on what we’ve seen in the galleries over the run of the exhibition. In general, we believe this was one of our more successful interactives in the gallery, but want to remember that this is new and very attractive hardware; many visitors to the gallery reported that this was their first experience playing with an iPad and that alone is enough to boost traffic. With over 32,000 visitors to the show, we had roughly 12,000 sessions on the iPads and that meant that a fairly high percentage of visitors to the show used the devices [and giant disclaimer follows in the next paragraph, so please read it carefully]. More often than not, visitors were browsing the iPads in groups.
