From the otherworld to another world?
2008 07 30
Malta’s Hypogeum is a World Heritage site.

But site-wise, why it was built and especially what the difference in function was between its various underground ...
Myth as Metaphor
2008 07 30
The beginning of mythology as the study of myth traces back at least to Classical Antiquity, when Greek and Roman philosophers tried to fathom the “meaning” of their mythical heritage.

Pesticides Persist In Ground Water
2008 07 26
Numerous studies over the past four decades have established that pesticides, which are typically applied at the land surface, can move downward through the unsaturated zone to reach the water table at detectable concentrations.

Mind Games: Remembering Brainwashing
2008 07 10
Brainwashing was bunk: no secret weapon to control the human mind existed, America’s best experts concluded in the 1960s. Yes, the Communists used time-honored and terrifying interrogation tactics during the cold war. Some, like waterboarding, had been perfected during the Spanish Inquisition. But Mr. Biderman concluded that “inflicting physical pain is not a necessary nor particularly effective method” to persuade ...

Scientists Identify Genes that Could Turn Ordinary People into Supergeniuses (or Mindless Drones)
2008 07 09

The Real-Life Matrix

2008 07 08
“Machine vision is an approach to the IoT that can monitor objects having no onboard sensors, controllers, or wireless interfaces. For example, some developers propose that cameras on typical cell phones can capture images of objects; using image-processing algorithms, distant servers can identify such objects and report information about them. In other words, machine vision could be a channel for ...
The Poisoning of America's Water Supplies
2008 07 08
It is hard to tell which is worse, the toxic chemicals and drugs that are leeching into the public water systems or the noxious chemicals deliberately put in the water by public health officials.

The End of Aging -Are There Unknown Dangers?
2008 07 07
"To intervene in aging, I realized, didn’t require a complete understanding of all the myriad interacting processes that contribute to aging damage. To design therapies, all you have to understand is aging damage itself: the molecular and cellular lesions that impair the structure and function of the body’s tissues. Once I realized that simple truth, it became clear that we ...

The figure emphatically contradicts the US government's claims that ...
Eugenics and Environmentalism: From quality control to quantity control
2008 07 07
Has eugenics faded away with time, or has the pseudo science morphed and cloaked itself under new auspices? Were some of the original founders of population control efforts themselves eugenicists?

Big Pharma Is in a Frenzy to Bring Cannabis-Based Medicines to Market

2008 07 04
Horoscope enthusiasts will be happy to hear that a grand cosmic force does indeed seem to be responsible for controlling the direction of all life on Earth.
