The Fate Of The Dinosaurs

A large asteroid struck our planet and killed dinosaurs about 66 million years ago, according to archaeological studies.

This theory is widely accepted, but new research shows that the dinosaur population and the various species were in a state of steep decline many million years before the asteroid hit Mexico.

People have a profound need to connect

In 2010, Marina Abramovic performed The Artist is Present, where she sat for eight hours a day for three months. In this special exhibit, Abramovic is sitting in one of the galleries. You wait in line to sit across her. Some people sit for a moment, others for long stretches. The experience is like looking at a living painting.

She trained for months to build the physical stamina to perform the piece. She commented on how the performance demonstrated the deep need for people to connect.

The Feeling of Awe
  • Awe is a feeling of reverential respect, fear and wonder when we look at something vast, like the Grand Canyon, or a clear sky sprinkled with stars.
  • When something makes us feel a tiny part of a massive universe around us, we bow down and are transformed.
  • The feeling of being a tiny speck serves as a way to humble us, making us kinder and more generous.

Space as a garbage dump

For many ages, space was pristine. In 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1 into orbit, but when the batteries died, the aluminium satellite marked the end of an unspoiled era.

According to NASA, the space above Earth is now the world's largest garbage dump. It consists of 8,000 tons of human junk, or space debris, left by space agencies over the last six decades.

Why we should keep some plants in our homes

Plants are pretty. They are affordable and can enhance a space and encourage cleaner air, often resulting in a better mood and more focused concentration.

But for the super busy, somewhat lazy, and possibly intimated person, they can be hard to keep alive. Knowing what the plants need can help us do better.

Discovering Your Ikigai

The most important thing to keep in mind when learning ikigai is that form follows intent.

  • Ikigai is about finding joy, fulfillment, and balance in the daily routine of life. Everything is connected and the happiness we find with ikigai will last throughout our entire lives.

Paul Graham

"One thing I've learned as an adult that I didn't realize as a kid is how precisely you have to aim at a goal to hit it. If you choose to optimize something even slightly off to the side, you'll sometimes achieve almost nothing toward your intended goal."

You can't forget how to ride a bike

After learning to cycle, most people won't forget how to pedal a bike even after decades.

Learning how to cycle requires higher-level thinking.

  • Your brain's motor cortices plan and execute precise muscle control,
  • The cerebellum helps you balance and pedal,
  • The basal ganglia keep these movements smooth.

While we use muscle movement and brain connection in other activities like dancing, sports, and walking, we don' use it all simultaneously like when we cycle.

Why you never forget how to ride a bike


Black Holes: The Dark Stars

A black hole is, like the name itself, a point of singularity and infinite density, which remains invisible, much like the event horizon, which is the surface.

A black hole, from a distance, carries the same properties of mass and gravity like a star would, without the light, heat, warmth and radiation.
