I'm 20 and study biochemistry. I believe that the existence of humans is generally unethical for both ourselves and our surroundings. Ideally, I would be a misanthropist, but I have ironically fallen back on Humanism. My blog consists primarily of posts involving art, atheism, politics, science, and occasionally humor. Anything that makes me think. Enjoy.

Their intelligence. Elephants understand that ivory is the reason they’re being killed. There are very, very few big bulls with big ivory left in the world, and the two or three still in Tsavo have become nocturnal. I’ve seen a bull with big tusks by the road turn his back, trying to hide the ivory.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about elephants?

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"

Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.

Jesus: What a shame.

in time of daffodils(who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how

in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)

in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting if,remember yes

in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek(forgetting find)

and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remember me
