Gods and Robots: Myths, Machines, and Ancient Dreams of Technology

In this compelling, richly illustrated book, Adrienne Mayor tells the fascinating story of how ancient Greek, Roman, Indian, and Chinese myths envisioned artificial life, automata, self-moving devices, and human enhancements―and how these visions relate to and reflect the ancient invention of real animated machines.

About Psi Balls

Psi balls, and all psionic constructs, are imaginary unless correlated with a real entity outside your mind. That correlation is a change, so you can determine if your imagined construct has a real influence by looking at changes in things that are not your mind. For example, if you intend to shift temperature or influence something, it should do work. Technically, psi balls are unrealistic conceptual abstractions that can model real influences. There is technically no ball of psychic energy between your hands because energy is an abstraction for how objects can change. My recommendation is to loop back veridical Read More

Occult Crystals, Occult Metals, and Psionics

Akk_b_unique wrote: Using magic and psi together… Till where I know magic is about controlling energy externally through candles, crystals, incense sticks etc (although I have never done it) and psionic is controlling energy through ur mind alone. So is there any way to use them together like using crystals to amplify ur precision in tedious task like remote viewing or psychokinesis I wrote: The crystalline structures we empirically know interact with psychic fields are organic compounds, such as what comprises your brain. Systems of carbon structures comprise humans, and humans are psychic. An extrapolation of our organic chemistry is Read More

The Mathematical Structure of Integrated Information Theory

Integrated Information Theory is one of the leading models of consciousness. It aims to describe both the quality and quantity of the conscious experience of a physical system, such as the brain, in a particular state. In this contribution, we propound the mathematical structure of the theory, separating the essentials from auxiliary formal tools.

Oxford Mathematician explains SIR Travelling Wave disease model for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The SIR model is one of the simplest ways to understand the spread of a disease such as COVID-19 (Coronavirus) through a population. Allowing the movement of populations makes the model slightly more realistic and results in ‘Travelling Wave’ solutions.

Oxford Mathematician explains SIR disease model for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The SIR model is one of the simplest disease models we have to explain the spread of a virus through a population.


Cytoscape is an open source software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and biological pathways and integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data. Although Cytoscape was originally designed for biological research, now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization. Cytoscape core distribution provides a basic set of features for data integration, analysis, and visualization.

Evolution, Dynamical Systems and Markov Chains

In this post we present a high level introduction to evolution and to how we can use mathematical tools such as dynamical systems and Markov chains to model it. Questions about evolution then translate to questions about dynamical systems and Markov chains – some are easy to answer while others point to gaping holes in current techniques in algorithms and optimization.

The Presence of the Past: Morphic Resonance and the Memory of Nature

Rupert Sheldrake’s theory of morphic resonance challenges the fundamental assumptions of modern science. An accomplished biologist, Sheldrake proposes that all natural systems, from crystals to human society, inherit a collective memory that influences their form and behavior. Rather than being ruled by fixed laws, nature is essentially habitual.

Chaos, Creativity, and Cosmic Consciousness

In this book of “trialogues,” the late psychedelic visionary and shamanologist Terence McKenna, acclaimed biologist and originator of the morphogenetic fields theory Rupert Sheldrake, and mathematician and chaos theory scientist Ralph Abraham explore the relationships between chaos and creativity and their connection to cosmic consciousness. Their observations call into question our current views of reality, morality, and the nature of life in the universe.

New Science of Life

After rats at Harvard first escaped from a new kind of water maze, successive generations learned quicker and quicker. Then rats in Melbourne, Australia learned yet faster. Rats with no trained ancestors shared in this improvement. Rupert Sheldrake sees these processes as examples of morphic resonance. Past forms and activities of organisms, he argues, influence organisms in the present through direct connections across time and space.Individual plants and animals both draw upon and contribute to the collective memory of their species.
