Very sweet! I am going to have to find this book in the library.
“The road to moral hell is paved with gradual self-permission.” …Maria Popova
I have maintained for a little while now that we will look back at some of the things that we ourselves did as a part of civilization today, things that we take for granted, and wonder how we ever thought that it was the right thing to do. And sometimes we will even swallow our nagging sense of injustice so that it will not be disruptive to our own sense of well being. It is true that we can learn through history, but there is never an end to this process, it seems. When will true justice be really served?
Even if these are just theories at this point, these are fascinating concepts. Imagine the possibility that all of the natural processes, of different kinds, of different orders of scale and magnitude, can be defined by similar sets of simple rules at a macro level. Consider the concept of “The Arrow of Time”, and how it fits in with the fundamental structure of our universe.
A black hole spins!
Watch the video! Young people like Katie Bouman are helping us see things that have never been seen in the past. They have now managed to obtain the first picture of a black hole! This video is from a couple of years back.
PS. I got the link for this video from a friend.
This is fascinating stuff! There is synchronization happening naturally everywhere, and a lot of it is unexpected and non-intuitive, at least for me. And there seem to be mathematical ways to characterize these synchronization processes. There could be ways to harness the power of synchronization.
Caution that the article is a long read.
