Information Wars: A Window into the Alternative Media Ecosystem
The dynamics of disinformation, propaganda, "fake news," and conspiracy theories can be studied by watching how they spread. This is a summary of a scientific study (by one of its authors, who links the full paper) into this, and it's chock-full of fascinating results. They focused on responses to mass shootings in particular, as these are a favorite target of conspiracy theories. Conspiracy stories, it turns out, spread with a very different pattern than other types of story - and botnets, quasi-replication of stories between sites, and similar patterns of signal manipulation are key to them. This (as well as other interesting commonalities between the sites which propagate these) suggests that there is something systematic and intentional behind these theories: they aren't emerging organically, they're being curated.

Entropy and Complexity: The surprising Paradox Behind Our Universe

One of the many big ideas in physicist Sean B. Carroll’s The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself is the concept that entropy can drive increasing complexity. In fact if our universe did not have increasing entropy as one of its fundamental components, we would not have the complex world we see today, including you and me.

The Mimic Octopus Thaumoctopus mimicus was discovered in 1998 off the coast of Indonesia. These truly incredible animals earn their name because of their unique ability to mimic the behavior, shape, and color of other marine species. The most common forms that these octopuses take are of the Sole fish (a poisonous flatfish), the Lionfish (a reef fish with highly toxic fins), and Sea Snakes (another poisonous ocean predator found in Indonesia). By imitating poisonous fish species, the mimic octopus can ward off any predators that might find the octopus appealing.

These animals are so intelligent that they can figure out which impersonation will be most effective at scaring away its attacker. They also have the ability to camouflage into their environment seamlessly. It's no wonder that the mimic octopus has eluded humans for so long, they're very tough to find!
