Interesting article about Autism : https://medium.com/matter/the-boy-wh…m-70c3d64ff221

Seems to be true for HSPs (highly sensitive persons) as well …

Interesting portent of the [near] future, Electric car future may depend on deep sea mining.

Everything comes with a price. Sad really, but to be expected. I kept thinking of those big Spice miners in Dune while I was reading the article.

Sad story : Dinosaurs taken from Mongolia into worldwide - and american - museums - and the world failed to give the Mongolians something back : Mongolians don't know about their Dinosaurs. Nobody has ever told them they had any. https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-50131770

I just saw a headline of a science mag … It was about "time crystals" …
Now, Wikipedia seems to even have an article about this strange thing : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_crystal

Ofc it has some drawbacks. Everything has. But we should be objective enough to not cling to old habits and world views and deem everything new and different as bad.

Technology and the Future of Healthcare, an interesting article
Technology drives healthcare more than any other force, and in the future it will continue to develop in dramatic ways. While we can glimpse and debate the details of future trends in healthcare, we need to be clear about the drivers so we can align with them and actively work to ensure the best outcomes for society as a whole.
Wish it was true. I heard many positive reviews about EffectiveSoft Corporation. They provide Medical/Healthcare/Pharma/Biotechnology software development service at the highest level and have over 15 years of practical experience.

Huh. It gives me only about 10-20% of a single CPU core, and 10% GPU usage. Maybe thats browser related? (firefox here)

Currently, we are actively shaping our next Flood Myth.

Will there be something like a Bible after us to tell this tale ?



The Dutch people invented that massive wall https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oosterscheldekering decades ago. Now they might be happy that they made it THAT big.


Edit : When zooming out from that ma I found a town called "New Cassel". Interesting. Kassel is a German town.
