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
The Law of Freedom

The Law of Freedom

Finding E.T., David Curtis While attending the 105th Commencement at Reed College, Portland, Oregon, I gained a deeper appreciation for the wide range of subjects touched upon by students in their bachelor's thesis and for the extent to which they were free to choose any topic they please. Subjects include, to cite a few, Labor Protest and State Re
Why is the Universe the way it is?

Why is the Universe the way it is?

If thinking is hard, how to fight my own bias. If thinking is hard, should I stop my inquiry and throw in the towel? If thinking is hard, should I be afraid to make a mistake? Our view of the Universe is shaped by our perception. Asking why the Universe is the way it is underscores the fact that what unfolds before our eyes is based on our limited
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.

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

Over the last several years, Poetry in America has partnered with Nautilus on a number of pieces exploring the links between poetry and science. We co-produced a conversation I had with Richard ... Science in Poetry. Poetry in Science... In a collision between poetry and science, I have a recurring image in my head of the monk Bodhidharma floating

... 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
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
 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
