Quote for the day -
"To see a World in a Grain of Sand,
and a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour."
- William Blake
Some exciting mathematics/science developments,
Feynman diagrams vastly generalised . . . even involving Zeta functions <-- link here
Here's a pretty good article to explain/appreciate category theory. Often-times, mathematicians call their theories by names that hides the amazing theoretical structures they are - such as group, ring, field. Article here --> Categories: From Zero to Infinity
Time and consciousness solved? Or, at least a good hint of how consciousness works. Article here --> time and consciousness
Consciousness as anticipation. I still like my idea of knowledge and consciousness. If one learns of something, then one becomes conscouse of it. I wrote of this awhile ago. It's probably buried deep down on this blog. I just bring it up to suggest that consciousness as something more complicated than just this or that solution.
