Brain + Universe = Electricity

The subject of the structure of the universe has been coming up a lot lately, and I though I would share three great inter-related posts.  The first from the Visual Complexity blog is a good primer. Here’s a blurb, then follow the link to get your juices going.

The image on the left shows a mouse’s neuronal network, with a prominent neuron and a set of branching axons.

The image on the right depicts the “evolution of the matter distribution in a cubic region of the Universe over 2 billion light-years”, in the most realistic simulation ever of the growth of cosmic structure and the formation of galaxies and quasars.

The next step requires you to watch two documentaries on google video.  I’m sorry.  Do it.  Your brain will thank you.

Thunderbolts of the Gods

The Thunderbolts Project offers remarkably simple explanations for ‘black holes’, ‘dark matter’, the electric sun, comets that are NOT made of ice, planetary scarring and many other ‘mysterious’ phenomena. It proposes that much of the currently observable phenomena of deep space can be intelligently explained by already known principles of electricity.

Then check out Immanuel Velikovsky‘s The Bonds of the Past and realize how brilliant we are at losing information.

Religions die when they are proved to be true. Science is the record of dead religions.” – Oscar Wilde
