Condemned by the good life

Maybe it’s a sign of age, but last week I went to my third funeral in six months. Ray died on Christmas Day, a week before he would have turned seventy, on New Year’s Day. His death came both too soon and not soon enough. Ray had been suffering from motor neurone disease and everybody who loved him took some comfort from the fact that his suffering didn’t get even more terrible and prolonged.

Peter Woit vs Sean Carroll: string theory, the multiverse, and Popperazism

The string and multiverse wars are going strong in fundamental physics! And philosophy of science is very much at the center of the storm. I am no physicist, not even a philosopher of physics, in fact (my specialty is evolutionary biology), so I will not comment on the science itself. I take it that the protagonists of this diatribe are more than competent enough to know what they are talking about.

Engineers design artificial synapse for “brain-on-a-chip” hardware

When it comes to processing power, the human brain just can’t be beaten.

Packed within the squishy, football-sized organ are somewhere around 100 billion neurons. At any given moment, a single neuron can relay instructions to thousands of other neurons via synapses — the spaces between neurons, across which neurotransmitters are exchanged. There are more than 100 trillion synapses that mediate neuron signaling in the brain, strengthening some connections while pruning others, in a process that enables the brain to recognize patterns, remember facts, and carry out other learning tasks, at lightning speeds.

The repercussions of these offenses, which range from mild embarrassment to untimely death, are familiar to all of us. We heed ample warnings from parents, teachers, friends, and colleagues — and if that doesn’t sufficiently caution us — we simply refer to those real-life what-went-terribly-wrong stories that someone you know always seems to know.
