Ya know, f' it, I'm going back to my trees.  When the world gets crazier than me, 'game over, man.'  And you know this started off as some Japanese sex game or something.
Creepy indeed, m'lady.

Holy H3LL that was a true blast to read my buddy. Thanks a lot for these insanely interesting things. Loved them. big_smile

Hey, anytime Punk! I enjoyed learning of the "Rainbow Universe" theory because I've always thought it would be better if the universe never had a beginning, but was simply just, "always existing". I don't know exactly why I'm so fond of the idea, except for the fact that it sounds pretty cool to me.

@Possum...creepy is a good word for that! Makes me think of the robots in Halloween III.
@Punk, digging those brilliant wallpapers. Absolutely stunning.

From a NOVA special, an article on "The Electric Brain". I found this pretty fascinating: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/body/electric-brain.html

What I liked in particular was when the guy said "consciousness has parts". I love that.

Now THAT is incredibly neat, seeing all of the little ant tunnels solidified for an interesting visual representation of what they do beneath the ground. Sweet.

The Universe Really Is A Hologram, According to New Simulations: http://www.scientificamerican.com/artic … ol_Twitter

There's been a lot of talk about this within the past few days. Not quite sure what is meant by "hologram", so I still have to research it a bit more to get an understanding of what those wacky theoretical physicists are talking about.

An analysis of the metal used to make the rivets revealed that they were a combination of iron (8.38%), aluminum (8.35%) and titanium (1.59%). Remember these trace metals have survived petrification and so do not indicate the exact content in the original material.

WHAT??? Damn... Crazy.
