Crossing the phantom divide

Crossing the phantom divide

Poesy is a part of learning, in measure of words for the most part restrained, but in all other points extremely licensed, and doth truly refer to the imagination, which, being not tied to the laws of matter, may at pleasure join that which nature hath severed, and sever that which nature hath joined, and so make unlawful matches and divorces of th
Gravity

Gravity

Lunar eclipse over Lake Maggiore There are concepts related to emergence, information and gravity, and properties like colors that point to a sense of universality. As the full Moon passed through the shadow of Earth it appeared orange, reminding me of fall colors when the weather turns cold. The same orange glow seems to radiate through the cosmi
On the future of humanity

On the future of humanity

Back in 2016, I read Yuval Noah Harari’s book entitled Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind . He wrote that it is “doubtful whether Homo Sapiens will still be around a thousand years from now, so 2 million years is really out of our league”. I wonder whether in the back of his mind he was thinking of the Fermi Paradox as regard to why we hav

Comet 46P Wirtanen seen from Dorset If I have to take along with me on this new journey one post out of those written in French, it would be the one relating to poetic reasoning. Creativity drinks from the source of the flow that runs through one’s body, heart, and mind. It pushes the door to the unknown and draws from the abyss what is about to
The language of time and space

The language of time and space

Leaving the States for a few days reminded me how much my own perspective is tinted by the set of spatial and temporal circumstances that define my daily life. I took the opportunity to read a few science magazines in French and got interested in stories that shed a different light on the Universe . My short trip to Grenoble, France gave me a chanc

... content and process are not two separately existent things, but rather they are two aspects of views of one whole movement There is much to say about building upon the great insights of those who preceded us. I feel that many concepts have been defined in the past and others have been restated in countless different ways over the course of huma
 On the nature of dark matter

On the nature of dark matter

The ring of dark matter (ESA) Dark matter is the subject of an investigation led by teams of scientists on the biggest case of the 21st century. It is a phenomenon whose observation was induced by the movement of stars further away from the galactic center, revolving faster than the ones closer in. In the cold dark matter cosmology, stars and gas a

I enjoy creative writing, the very first ideas and original sparks that rise from a swirl of images, experiences, and thoughts. Owing to their ability to discriminate what is, scientists can effectively express their thoughts and convey to a larger audience their gained wisdom with an intuitive choice of words that resonate with truth, as Arthur Ed
On the nature of metaphors

On the nature of metaphors

As we envision the possibility of a human mission to Mars in a not so distant future, we are waiting on the spacecraft InSight, after its landing on November 26th of last year, to send out all the data on the planet’s vital signs whose amazing bird’s-eye view was captured by ESA’s Mars Express over the course of its fifteen-year history. Our
A phenomenological inquiry

A phenomenological inquiry

Shooting stars fall to Earth... Essentially phenomenology is a product of the transcendental subject, whereas science in the ordinary sense is a product of the mundane subject. Yet phenomenology necessary “appears” as the product of the mundane subject. Let’s say that we, Homo Sapiens, do not have the ability to see reality as it is. So can a
