RDT,

You are spamming the site big time. We get it, we hate him, no reason to publish his picture (ugly pig face of a man).

It's Obama's fault. If he were white, this wouldn't have happened. My campaign made this clear a long time ago. TRUTH!

Juno is scheduled to make more flybys of the planet every 53 days, but the recent success will be as close as humankind gets to the spot for a long, long time.

The radio surveys cover 10 times more of the sky than previous programs. They also cover at least 5 times more of the radio spectrum – and do it 100 times faster. They are sensitive enough to hear a common aircraft radar transmitting to us from any of the 1000 nearest stars. But still I remain skeptical.

Please don't tell the RIAA about this. They might try to serve a DMCA against all life on Earth on suspicion of harboring one pirated movie.

It will be like: "I'm sorry: we're going to have to remove your big toe. It contains an unlicensed copy of 50 First Dates."

Interesting article. I really liked this part: "We’re taught that death is natural and that trying to escape it is wishful lunacy. However, these researchers have made tangible discoveries. They’ve published studies in highly respected journals and attracted serious amounts of funding. When they say it’s possible to live longer, and maybe forever, it’s tempting to believe them."

For a short intro this certainly packs a lot of punch and raises so many vital issues and burning questions.

To begin with it's noteworthy to recall how many scholars have considered Ferdowsi's affinities with Isma'iliyah (citing the order of intro to Shahnameh as one evidence) and of course Isma'iliyah emphasis on Rationalism and how they themselves were influenced by Aristotelian philosophy. Nasser Khosro is another figure of Iran's classical literature who was also close to Isma'iliyah and had an emphasis on Rationalism.

Per life on Earth let's remember that life on our little planet has gone through extinction five times before and today we might be on the verge of the sixth one. See below:

The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sixth_Extinction:_An_Unnatural_History


The most fascinating part of this intro for me is your reference to “the unique set of accidental circumstances” which you evoke to point out how life on Earth was formed, but it could as well be utilized to analyze societal developments. In philosophy and social sciences such an approach is referred to as “Aleatory Materialism” or “Philosophy of Encounter” largely based on works of the late French philosopher Louis Althusser. Most significant point of Aleatory Materialism is its freedom from any mechanical, teleological determinism and its emphasis of the analysis of the specificities of conditions in any historical period. See below for details:

Looking forward to next installments.

Call it "Mash Ghasem's Cosmic Hypothesis" if you will but it is very much possible that at the end of each Black Hole there would be a Big Bang, if so our whole universe could be just one from millions and billions of other ones,
The picture below is en elementary map of our universe. Could imagine a million other ones like that?
