The Drake equation (pictures, video, facts & news)... BBC - Universe!

BBC - Universe - The Drake equation (pictures, video, facts & news)

The Drake equation

Named for its creator, astrophysicist Frank Drake, the Drake equation is an attempt to estimate N, the number of advanced civilisations in the Milky Way galaxy. Many of the numbers that go into the Drake equation can only be guessed at, for example, the factor L, the average lifetime of an advanced civilisation.

According to Drake, the average of people's best estimates suggests that there are about 10,000 technically advanced civilisations spread across our galaxy... Read More>>>

Predictions for 2020s With Ray Kurzweil...

Predictions for 2020s With Ray Kurzweil | 33rd Square

3D printing food, future methods of payment and many more signs of things to come are discussed by Ray Kurzweil in this video.

Ray Kurzweil is a prize-winning author and scientist. He was named Inventor of the Year by MIT in 1988 and was awarded the Dickson Prize, Carnegie Mellon's top science prize, in 1994. He is the recipient of nine honorary doctorates and honors from two American presidents.

Kurzweil believes that we will enhance our natural biological intelligence through artificial intelligence in the future. Kurzweil explores logarithmic advances in computing power and information technologies and uses the history of their trajectories to project when and how artificial intelligence may enhance our daily lives.

What Can Physics Tell Us About Consciousness?

What Can Physics Tell Us About Consciousness? -- ChrisFields - YouTube

Physics and particularly quantum physics are often invoked in discussions of consciousness.

But what can physics actually tell us?

I will first discuss what physics does not tell us: physics does not provide any criteria with which to distinguish conscious systems from non-conscious systems. As far as physics is concerned, consciousness is like free will - it characterizes
either nothing or everything. Since we are conscious, it is reasonable to regard everything else as conscious, too.

If we make this assumption, the question of interest becomes: what systems
are conscious of what?

Physics is fundamentally a theory of interaction, so it can tell us a lot about this. The first thing it tells us is that being conscious of something requires expending energy. How much energy a system can expend determines how much it can be conscious of. This energy requirement has surprising consequences, some of which I will describe.

Tim Ferriss Will Teach You How To Quickly Master Any Skill | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

Tim Ferriss is a human guinea pig: in his researching the 4-Hour Workweek, Body, and Chef, the author has thrown himself into deadlifts and omelets and French–and from all that experimentation, a meta-sequence of contrarian best practices emerged.

During a talk at the Next Web Conference in Amsterdam, Ferriss unpacked–or is it deconstructed?... Read More>>>

3 minute animation will change the way you see the universe...

This 3-minute animation will change the way you see the universe | Business Insider India...

Carl Sagan told us that there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all of the Earth's beaches. At the same time, there are more H2O molecules in just 10 drops of water than there are stars. Ranging from the unimaginably small to the unimaginably big, the scale of the universe is mind-boggling. Watch to try to wrap your head around it.

The Fermi Paradox! Solutions and Ideas, Where Are All The Aliens? (2/2)

The Fermi Paradox II — Solutions and Ideas – Where Are All The Aliens?

Where are all the aliens? 

The universe is too big and too old, why have we not met aliens yet?

 Do they live in computers?

Were they wiped out by an ancient super intelligence?

Or are we just to primitive to understand their motives?

Whatever the answer is, it is incredibly important for our own future.

The Fermi Paradox! Where Are All The Aliens? (1/2)

The Fermi Paradox — Where Are All The Aliens? (1/2) - YouTube

The universe is unbelievably big – trillions of stars and even more planets.

Soo… there just has to be life out there, right?

But where is it?

Why don’t we see any aliens?

Where are they?

 And more importantly, what does this tell us about our own fate in this gigantic and scary universe? Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe. We are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.
