Does Size Matter?

Does Size Matter?

A while back I spoke of my feeling of oneness with the universe. Much like the Buddha, and others who followed the ancient Vedic ideas of the universal connectivity of all things, I had cultivated that feeling within myself.

My approach, very different than in times past, was to attempt to understand my place within the grand scheme of things.

One of the things that I found hardest was to visualize the physical size of things and size matters. A lot.

How large is an atom? How small is our sun? These questions, from our perspective, might seem backwards but it's all about the perspective.

One of the websites I follow is Science-based Life. Kyle over there finds interesting scientific facts that show up in my inbox daily and today he posted a real winner.

Scale2 from htwins.net is an interactive animation you absolutely must see, and hear, to believe.

You control the viewport which you shows you the contents of the universe by size, from the largest (the universe itself) to the smallest (the Planck length). Each object is labeled and clicking on them pops up a short description.

My Two Lover Valentine's Day

My Two Lover Valentine's Day

I have to share a secret with you.

I have two lovers this Valentine's Day. Each very different from the other.

One is sweet, loving, and caring. She is supportive, smart, adventurous, curious, and beautiful. My true love. My dream girl whose heart I won. The one who sent me that very special Valentine's Day card, my misia.

My other lover couldn't be more different, or indifferent, really. She's seemingly unfeeling and distant. Her rock star status aloof. Until recently she didn't even seem to know I exist. I sent cards. Left notes on her doorstep but never heard back, until today, that is. I received a note from a friend of hers saying they'd pass along my notes. So I have hope my wooing is not in vain.

So who are these lovers?

Funny: 17 Things Your Computer Will Never Do

With the utter coolness of Apple Computer's Siri personal assistant now available, I think it's time to take a fresh look into the future to see what technology might behold for us in the decades to come.

In this highly scientific analysis, I have taken 36 years of computer experience and a lifetime's worth of human experience, applied advanced statistical methods* to the problem, and identified 17 things your computer will never do:

1. Love

Think of all the wonder of love, the joys, the crazy acts of passion, of Romeo and Juliet. Yes, love, the high pedestal from which arises the source of betrayal, anger, divorce, and even murder.

Imagine the vengeance a jealous Blackberry might take if finds out your PC cheated on it by allowing your new iPhone to plug in!

I can hear it all now. "And no protection, either, just think about the viruses you could have caught from that scanky thing with its disgusting Bluetooth and open ports! I heard it's married, too, with a WiFi waiting at home. I bet you found it traipsing about in more bars and more places with nothing on but its 3G."

No, that won't do. No PC will ever have enough bandwidth to process that data stream.
