Most Abrupt Ever carbon-14 increase in the earth’s atmosphere

An international team led by researchers at Nagoya University, along with US and Swiss colleagues, has identified a new type of solar event and dated it to the year 5480 BC; they did this by measuring carbon-14 levels in tree rings, which reflect the effects of cosmic radiation on the atmosphere at the time. They …

Structuralism

In sociology, anthropology and linguistics, structuralism is the methodology that elements of human culture must be understood in terms of their relationship to a larger, overarching system or structure. It works to uncover the structures that underlie all the things that humans do, think, perceive, and feel. Alternatively, as summarized by philosopher Simon Blackburn, structuralism …

The DIGITs in Jan Scholten Wonderful Plant theory

In my experience the first 3 digits tells you something about the potential of the person. Jan Scholten wrote that each following digit of the first 3 ones cannot be bigger than the previous one. For example: 64x, there can be 641, 642, 643 and 644, … but no 645, because the last digit 5 …

Flashes from Beyond the Milky Way

Once thinking these bursts had emanated from within the Milky Way galaxy, or from cosmic neighbors, the astronomers now confirm that they are long-distance flashes from across the universe – more than 3 billion light-years away, according to a new report published Jan. 4 in the journal Nature.

Building up space – Space Does Not Exist Independently

“You can feel close to someone who is on the other side of the planet, because they are next of kin, or you might have a neighbour who is close to you physically but is distant in terms of the relationship.” He is bringing a similar flexible concept, a kind of “relative locality,” to the …

Silicon may work for quantum computing

The idea with silicon-based quantum computers is that impurities form the basis of a qubits. If you drop a single phosphorous atom into a silicon crystal, it replaces a silicon atom. But it has one proton and one electron more than the surrounding atoms. That single proton and electron behave like their own little artificial …
