Clocks,Time; Past,Present,Future

Thought Experiments help us understand time.

In the same sense, philosophy helps us understand the science of time.

A Time Stopping Machine will not work very well.

Relativity explains the passage of time.

Understanding philosophy and science help us see time as a real item that belongs in the universe as a function of theories in science that prove the existence of time through experimentation.

“Beyond The Stars”

Space, Einstein, Stephen Hawkins, life on another planet, purpose and exploration, progress, and much, much more.

NASA and many other space agencies are trying to make it happen.

Science is giving us the way to do it.

Is it necessary?

Is it necessary to grow and learn and share?

Some of us know it is.

Many believe it is.

Together let’s embrace the idea and continue the quest to be all we can be.https://youtu.be/UCkCSOdRIRA

 

The Finite Optimist

As Kipling once wrote, don’t make dreams your master, or thoughts your aim.

To act in accord with dream and thought is an art.

The proper action for the proper thought or dream requires a saints heart and an engineers mind.

It is practical to have a set of rules that allow us to uncover the secrets in life and explore the unknown.

We need to read far and wide and understand to envision the progress the future will hold.

Can you treat your body properly so it will function and stay healthy?

Can you process and build on earth to help it function and stay healthy?

These mysteries require discovery, recovery and more.

Go explore.

Ebola Situation Report For Democratic Republic Of Congo

This is the 15 report that involves the most current situation of the Ebola disease in this region.

http://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/273088/SITREP_EVD_DRC_20180712-eng.pdf?ua=1

It is considered to be nearly over after 2 incubation periods of the virus which is 42 days.

Yet it must be said, there needs to be global cooperation to maintain support for health and welfare in any crisis.

The psychology effects alone warrants consideration for ongoing financial support.

The potential for future outbreaks must be entertained to cover further possible instances.

With all the work and study, help and support, this situation report is good news.

WHO and the UN are sustaining the good work necessary to maintain global cooperation and collaboration against any current or future Ebola situation in DRC or elsewhere.

Our hearts go out to all those who were effected by this deadly disease and we offer our condolences to the families and friends of the deaths related in this situation report.

We have broken things up pretty good.

Mankind is still available for small group activities, and humanity is still raging on with death and destruction.

The goal is to understand competition, hatred and acting in self-destructive group-acts like war.

It’s not always polite to stare in the mirror.

Sometimes we need to go about the business of procreation, raising the family, community, going to work, etc.

It would have been nice to go to a four day work week, but we fucked that up when we started to think IT was the end all be all.

Technology and science by extension are pretty heady, but so is having a sanity for the individual and group to grow into the 21 century.

It seems like a good time to use old technology like mindfulness or meditation.

Old ideas like globalization can’t be all bad.

Things can still go south with unknown diseases, over population, poverty, natural disaster and more.

Never a dull moment with human consciousness.

Strong Gravitational Lenses

Einstien made sense when he,in the Theory Of General Relativity, guessed that a big mass can pull or bend light toward it due to its great mass.

The big telescope, Hubble, proved his idea by using the mass of a near by galaxy.

Oh, galaxy ESO 325-G004, why does thee love me so?

Now, to hear it in the news, decades later is just icing on the cake.

Another step closer to using science to make use of nature’s ways.

Human Behavior (People are able to change)

Understanding who you are by understanding how your brain grows and operates.

What do genes have to do with behavior? This is most misunderstood.

Genes have nothing to do with behavior. But the environment turns on genes (or the instructions). Environment’s meaning changes from small to big. This area of understanding and facts is well worth learning all you can.

There is no determinism from genes because of our diverse environments. Think about it. What does culture have to do with it?

Brains and genes and culture coevolve.

Individual selection? Kin selection? Reciprocal altruism? It is very complicated it understand.

Be damned sure you understand human behavior before you judge yourself or others.

Learn to be your best self!
