Pondering the Singularity
GET THIS Okay, so the internet is basically a way to connect far away geographical places together. That is to say, to communicate information without the need to be in the same physical space.

…attempting and failing to get my dog to take an interest in eating it, I worked up the nerve to drop a paper cup over it. Then I slid a piece of paper under the cup and taped the paper to the cup thereby TRAPPING the spider in an inescapable paper cocoon. Then I went outside and lit the paper on fire and watched the spider burn to death. I actually felt super bad about it immediately ...

Actually I think steampunk is kinda cool in a way. At least the idea. It’s like the opposite of retro-futurism, where it’s the past’s interpretation of what the future was going to look like. Well this is sorta like the future’s interpretation of what the past would look like now. It’s weird/cool. FUTURE-RETROISM

Great article about body donation and this guy at BU’s anatomical gift program. “You are an exponential gift, from one man to eight future doctors to hundreds of patients to the multitudes that make up their family and friends,” she says. “You gave us access to the wonder that is human life and challenged us to discover all the intricate parts working together to make one man.”
