‘The Character of Physical Law’: Richard Feynman’s Legendary Course Presented at Cornell, 1964

‘The Character of Physical Law’: Richard Feynman’s Legendary Course Presented at Cornell, 1964 | The virtual life | Scoop.it
Lecture One, The Law of Gravitation:

Feynman ended the first of his famous 1964 Messenger Lectures at Cornell University, a talk entitled 'The Law of Gravitation, an Example of Physical Law.' (See above.) The lectures were intended by Feynman as an introduction, not to the fundamental laws of nature, but to the very nature of such laws.

11 of the Weirdest Solutions to the Fermi Paradox

11 of the Weirdest Solutions to the Fermi Paradox | The virtual life | Scoop.it
Most people take it for granted that we have yet to make contact with an extraterrestrial civilization. Trouble is, the numbers don’t add up. Our Galaxy is so old that every corner of it should have been visited many, many times over by now. No theory to date has satisfactorily explained away this Great Silence, so it’s time to think outside the box. Here are eleven of the weirdest solutions to the Fermi Paradox.

Brain to Brain Communication Using EEG Waves and the Internet

Brain to Brain Communication Using EEG Waves and the Internet | The virtual life | Scoop.it
Brain-to-brain communication was achieved recently using brain-computer interfaces, computer-brain interfaces, electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings and the internet. The developers of this brain-to-brain communication system demonstrated the transmission of information between conscious human brains without use of motor or peripheral sensory systems. This means that the information was sent from one mind to another mind without talking […]

Alone, the simple little robot can’t do much, shuffling around on three vibrating tooth-pick legs. But working with 1,000 or more like-minded fellow bots, it becomes part of a swarm that can self-assemble into any two-dimensional shape. These are some of the first steps toward creating huge herds of tiny robots that form larger structures—including…
