Theory: Flexibility is at the heart of human intelligence

Centuries of study have yielded many theories about how the brain gives rise to human intelligence. Some neuroscientists think intelligence springs from a single region or neural network. Others argue that metabolism or the efficiency with which brain cells make use of essential resources are key. A new theory, published in the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences, makes the case that the brain's dynamic properties - how it is wired but also how that wiring shifts in response to changing intellectual demands - are the best predictors of intelligence in the human brain. "When we say that someone is smart, we understand intuitively what that means," said University of Illinois psychology professor Aron Barbey, the author of the new paper. "Usually, we're referring to how good they are at making decisions and solving particular types of problems. But recently in neuroscience, there's been a focus on understanding in biological terms how general intelligence arises." That requires studying the structural and functional characteristics of the brain.

Australian Snowy Mountains - Nimmitabel

I am spending a week hunting waterfalls in the Australian Alps as the snow and ice starts to melt. There are some big falls in here and they run fast in the snow melt. I lived on the western side of these alps as a kid and spent a lot of time riding my horse up in the ridges. I remember that, back then, I couldn't wait to grow up and move to a city. i guess we all learn.

This is the ruins of the old flour windmill at the lonely town of Nimmitabel. The town is on the edge of an alpine desert, but within cooee of the eastern rainforests, the high forests, the resting place of the bushranger the Long Tailor and the cascades of the Snowy River.

True gold at the end of the rainbow

Principe

Gold (Au) is valuable to us and so much so that folklore and fairy tales claim that at the end of a rainbow you will find it.

But what is a pot of gold truly worth?

Humanity is depleting diversity at an unprecedented rate – only comparable to an large asteroid impact or global volcanic eruptions over centuries.
The soil that once was fertile has been poisoned and barren.
Where there were forests and myriads of sounds night and day is now silent.
Where there were countless pollinators there are just fractions left.

Like gold we cannot create species lost no matter how advanced our genetics become as we also must recreate all the diversities these species were part of.
All the gold in the universe will not give us back what we destroy!

True gold is life itself - that which so many take for granted

A miniature example of the devastation is the Easter Island.
A miniature example of the opposite is the island of Principe. A gem so incredible you might think you have been transported back in time.

It’s remarkable that an island is so intact to this date, and its significance is recognized by the fact it’s a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

I felt incredibly welcomed by Principe as so many amazing things happened as soon as I arrived! I was told it had been raining continuously for at least a couple of weeks, but when I arrived I was able to go check out the coastline and go to this location overlooking the pristine forests and rugged landscape.

The coastline is very challenging and finding a location to go onshore requires a bit of planning and favourable tide. I found a large boulder to sit on, and from there I enjoyed moments I will treasure for a long time.

The shifting light, the curtains of mist and rain coming and going over the intensely green landscape.
The sounds of the many grey parrots coming and going.
Seeing the all kinds of fish species. And whales - females with their offspring!
Overhead the face of a monkey looked down on me, and this was my first and only encounter during my 10 days here!

I was abruptly shaken by a huge boom, and I thought some locals were fishing with TNT as I was turning my head towards the explosion! When my head was finally aligned with the source of the explosion I saw the body of a huge whale that had just made a leap into the air! I have never experienced this before and was unaware that the sound would be so incredibly loud! I’ve heard orcas slam into the water, but this was so powerful!

I was elated and very grateful!

Just moments later the sun came out in perfect position to shine on one of the occasional rain showers and the rainbow appeared!

I didn’t see a whale or a rainbow the following days, so this location, this very boulder, these moments, have a very special place in my heart!

"Oxygen has provided a breath of fresh air to the study of the Earth's evolution some 400-plus million years ago.

A team of researchers, including a faculty member and postdoctoral fellow from Washington University in St. Louis, found that oxygen levels appear to increase at about the same time as a three-fold increase in biodiversity during the Ordovician Period, between 445 and 485 million years ago, according to a study published Nov. 20 in Nature Geoscience."

Houston Texans running back D’Onta Foreman waves to the crows as he is carted off the field after injuring his ankle on a 34 yard touchdown run during the fourth quarter against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston. The Texans defeated the Cardinals 31-21.

Immediately after crossing the goal line, Foreman went down in a heap with what team officials reported to be an ankle injury. Foreman laid on the field for several minutes surrounded by the team’s athletic trainers before being helped onto a cart and taken off the field.
