    That's true, but it's what we need to evolve to do. Same goes for the natural diet, those days are over. Time to start to adapt to processed foods.

    Conversely, body temperature from lifeforms seems to coincide with potential 24-hour heat-waves by the end of the century.

    The compound heatwaves threaten “severe damage” and are a risk to health because the body is not given a chance to cool down at night.
    I blame masturbatory emissions from internet use.

    Chess - AlphaZero vs Stockfish

    The most powerful chess program that is 100x faster falls to AlphaZero, a program that taught itself chess with zero human input.

    plastic no longer a problem, nature beats scientists to solution.

    Effects of Kombucha on oxidative stress induced nephrotoxicity in rats

    I've sort of been wondering if my scoby culture has been fermenting differently from other ones, as I tend to stress the scoby with how I prepare it (the occasional water with hydrogen peroxide used in storing the RO filtered water, or not fully cooled tea (I'll make it stronger and will dilute it, but it doesn't always not make it warm to the touch.) That or the cell culture was larger for the jar and not floating, so it may end up allowing oxygen to remain in contact with the tea surface. Either way when I peed it had a funny smell and it could be because of drinking the stuff (or I managed to get diabeetus. . .)

    Panpsychism: Does Consciousness Pervade the Universe?

    Also, this seems related somewhat (or the idea that other parts of the nervous system also function as a source of memories and consciousness? The idea that those memories of deceased flatworms consumed by others also potentially pass that memory onto another, is interesting to consider. It may just be a flawed study (and assuming that the head is central to the function of an organism might be somewhat the issue, but it doesn't exclude the part where other consciousness might be imparted; and it really makes you think of the adage, "you are what you eat?")

    The Ninel Kulagina Telekinesis Case: Rebuttals to Skeptical Arguments

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nina_Kulagina

    Some allege she is demonstrating a biostatic aspect that propels material towards her, but in some of the articles, it's claimed she was "called out" for fraud by having concealed magnets on herself.

    @Light Leak, this was published a year ago - https://www.pnas.org/content/pnas/ea...74116.full.pdf

    Identifies biomarker for chronic fatigue, apparently a very good paper
