New ‘Interstellar’ Trailer

A third incredible trailer from Christopher Nolan’s new film “Interstellar” has been released. In the film, Matthew McConaughey plays an engineer who, along with several other scientists and astronauts, journeys through a newly discovered wormhole to save the world. The trailer features word’s from the beautiful Dylan Thomas poem “Night”.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

The world needs to see this. As Carl Sagan poetically forewarned…

A civilization either becomes spacefaring or extinct.

When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout.

Shred that guitar, toot that horn, rattle those keys… it’s good fer yer neurons!

From this episode of DNews with Laci Green.

I’ve been saying this for quite a long time.

Unforeseen (albeit accurately predicted) disruptive technologies fueled by an unwavering exponential growth curve (Moore’s Law) will lead to technological unemployment amidst a society shackled to the traditional capitalistic platform. We’re here through the processes of evolution by natural selection. And to borrow words from Peter Diamandis, we’re currently in the midst of a transition into the future via evolution by intelligent direction.

Melhor eu encarar tudo essa reciproca como mera coincidência, antes que eu fique falando sozinho ou cansem de mim, o que da na mesma. Mas se algo me disser que não estou sozinho em duplicata, eu finjo que essa mensagem nunca existiu e volto com outra cara.

I will try to do not be boring while trying to learn how to put in phrases what I feel and think.

Massimo Citro, O código básico do universo, p.132

"Nas tradições judaica, cristã e muçulmana, Deus se manifesta como Verbo (Verbum), igual à Palavra (Logos) da filosofia helênica, à qual até o apostolo João faz referência. Na Índia, é o deus Krishna quem cria, por meio do som da flauta. Mesmo nas cosmologias xamânicas americana e africana, o som é responsável pela gênese do universo. O segredo parece estar na interação entre som e matéria; há uma correlação entre o som e um princípio organizador da matéria e o campo das forças informadas.

Há uma direção constante no pano de fundo, organizando o enorme mosaico que está sendo composto. Textos de muitas civilizações, entre elas a egípcia, a judaica e a indiana, descrevem a ação criadora do código básico como já possuindo informação quanto a forma, antes mesmo de se tornar massa. Essa situação poderia ser representada como uma imagem de sombra imaterial do corpo físico, com as linhas definidas, mas intangíveis e invisíveis. Podemos também imaginar o código básico como uma obra coral, harmoniosa e imperiosa, um concerto impressionante de sons que dá ordens às moléculas e recebe resposta delas. Dos imensos buracos atômicos emergem os gritos das partículas, expressões de órbitas assustadoras, até que se transformam num coro harmonioso, todas as moléculas cantando.Há movimento contínuo de ir e vir entre massa e campo e vice-versa - o respirar das coisas.”

Life can be in the palm of our hands sometimes, building towards the future and creating what is essential,  or it can slip through our fingers bringing you down to lowest depths, but the choice is always ours whether to hold the weight or drop it.
