5% of normal brain mass. 125 IQ.
A sense that more is possible , maybe our brains can do Limitless stuff.
For decades now, I have been haunted by the grainy, black-and-white x-ray of a human skull. It is alive but empty, with a cavernous fluid-filled space where the brain should be. A thin layer of brain tissue lines that cavity like an amniotic sac. The image hails from a 1980 review article in ...

I'll just leave this here.
There are some questions I have about the world’s first perpetual Slinky escalator. Will this Slinky ever stop slinking? Will the entire rickety machine collapse into a pile of repurposed Ikea particle board and dust? Is this not the world’s most mesmerizing GIF?

Gratipay, while an excellent donations service in its time, seems to be forced into changing for the worse. So I'm trying out Patreon! It seems to be how everyone else is soliciting donations these day.
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!
