A quick rundown of what holograms are, the beginning of a series that I recommend the curious watch. I’ve included the second part of the series here to make things easy. Part three I’ll post as soon as it comes out. I do like the old DN stuff, and hope that Seeker will prove out to be just as interesting.
I love this show, and watch it religiously. I highly recommend it, and since I’ve been slacking at blogging, I’m going to cheat and actually post something today and include a video for you to enjoy.
I have many pets. One of the more recent additions to my world is Ashardalon, a Red Dragonscale Betta.
It’s been a bit since I’ve internet bigfooted, so here I go with a shiny new video that came out very recently. First the video, so you can know what my comments are on.
So, epic blob-squatch in a picturesque setting. The clip is nothing of interest to anyone, including bigfooters, who can’t even verify what’s in the video, let alone that It’s an undiscovered creature. Even worse is that there is no reason for the man to have been filming that waterfall.
I also wonder about the apparent container of some sort (maybe a bucket or suitcase) that the “creature” is carrying. Could it be an indication that it’s some innocent fisherman distorted by a low quality camera into a budget blob-squatch?
Why this video is making the rounds I don’t understand. It’s epically unexciting.
Sorry about missing a few days. Life got a little crazy.
On to what I plan to talk about today: Proprioception. This is the sense of one’s body in space, and it amounts to humans having a 6th sense. It’s out ability to do things like bring our finger to our nose, or be aware of where our foot is without looking to see where our foot is.
There’s actually some research that seems to indicate that out sense of force (mechanosensation, the ability to feel things like your fingers pressing against keys, or someone pressing on your skin) plays a roll in proprioception. There are interesting indications that a gene is involved in the whole matter, and I strongly suggest you learn more by reading the article I read from Livescience. Human sense are fascinating and this budding research is certainly mind blowing.
“Here my cry, o God listen to my prayer! From the ends of the earth I cray to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety for you are my safe refuge a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in your sanctuary safe beneath the shelver of your wings!” – Psalm 61:1-4
