The Economist livability ranking befuddled me for years. Are Melbourne, Vienna and Vancouver really that good?

It's interesting how the lists are dominated by rock songs. I actually expected more pop hits there. But perhaps those are, indeed, more likely to be short-lived. http://poly-graph.co/timeless/
I have a theory: No Diggity by Blackstreet is timeless. If Frank Sinatra is timeless in 2015, so too is No Diggity in 2050, fondly remembered by our children's children as the icon of the 90s. And I think that I can prove it.

I just wanted to share some excerpts from Waking Up by Sam Harris that I listened to a couple of months ago. It is worth reading in its entirety and I am personally planning to re-read it. So here are some notes:

“Our conventional sense of self is an illusion; positive emotions, such as compassion and patience, are teachable skills; and the way we think directly influences our experience of the world.”

“There is now little question that how one uses one’s attention, moment to moment, largely determines what kind of person one becomes. Our minds—and lives—are largely shaped by how we use them.”

“My mind begins to seem like a video game: I can either play it intelligently, learning more in each round, or I can be killed in the same spot by the same monster, again and again.”

“How we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the character of our experience and, therefore, the quality of our lives. Mystics and contemplatives have made this claim for ages—but a growing body of scientific research now bears it out.”

Finally, things promised by Aldous Huxley and others a century ago might become a reality. Wired on Crispr: http://www.wired.com/2015/07/crispr-dna-editing-2/
We now have the power to easily alter DNA. It could eliminate disease. It could get really out of hand.
