Just spent 72 hours sitting motionless in a darkened room. Perhaps it was a mistake to binge-watch “Black Mirror.” - Conan

The brains of two rats on opposite sides of the globe were connected by a neural link, and they managed to use this connection for one to teach the other which lever to press in order to earn a reward. The future potential for this technology is extraordinary -- although I would be a bit hesitant to use the word "mind-blowing" for any brain-based technology.

In a stunning first for neuroscience, researchers have created an electronic link between the brains of two rats, and demonstrated that signals from the mind of one can help the second solve basic puzzles in real time — even when those animals are separated by thousands of miles.

The GE medical commercial with Agent Smith. ... so nasty.   Terrible bad taste in my mouth.

When New York City hosted The World's Fair in 1964, Isaac Asimov, the prolific sci-fi author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University, took the opportunity to wonder what the world would look like 50 years hence -- assuming the world survived the nuclear threats of the Cold War.
