A Speculation Article: Neuron Fusion of Humans and Machines

Introduction: Neuralink is a company based in San Diego, California that has created a technology called Synapse Design. This is the technology that allows two human brains to link together in real time to form one artificial intelligence system. If you are unfamiliar with Synapse Design, it is a technology that was developed by neuroscientists that uses the concept of synaptic plasticity, which is the ability of the brain to change and connect with other neurons. With this new technology the ability to connect two human brains will allow them to create a computer network that will be able to process information and provide relevant answers to questions in real time.

Physical Processes Of Melting Polar Ice Is Physically Melting

environment, science

Melting Polar Ice is literally warping the planet.

Melting Ice occurs every time there is a large concentration of heat in the Earth’s atmosphere. Warmer temperatures and long periods of sunlight can cause melt. Melting of Ice occurs in the months just before or after a big snowfall. While melting is a natural process, the buildup of ice can aggravate global warming.

One of the biggest contributors to global warming is the retreat of the ice sheets. Without the ice sheets to reflect the sun’s rays, the planet’s temperatures would increase naturally. The West Antarctic Ice Sheet is currently advancing at an accelerating rate. In fact, this rapid advance is accelerating so rapidly that it could speed up the rate of global warming considerably. A recent study by a team of Harvard scientists found a direct connection between the retreat of the ice sheets and global warming.

It was a research paper which came to the conclusion that whilst the West Antarctica Ice Sheet is melting at a rapid pace, it is also releasing larger amounts of carbon dioxide and methane as it melts.

What is the Oldest Animal on Earth?

Most likely the answer to this question will surprise you

The latest theory, by a microbiologist, has been gaining a lot of attention lately. Allow this to sink in.

A lot of scientists claim that they have evidence that the oldest animal on the Earth is not a dinosaur. The fact that it is buried with fossilized feathers, scales, and teeth in its fossilized remains places it at very early times of the Earth’s history. There have been other theories put forth that place many different animals in a similar time frame, however, without hard evidence none of those theories have stood up to the scrutiny of scientists.

The latest theory is that the animal is most likely a dinosaur. Although most scientists concur that the animal is most likely a prehistoric creature, some will still disagree. That is because there are certain characteristics that most prehistoric creatures had that are missing from modern day creatures. For example, some think that dinosaurs used feathers for protection, while others think that the animal could breathe fire.

Did Humans Once Have Tails?

biology, science

One of the most intriguing questions about our evolution is, “Did humans once have tails?”

This is a question that scientists spend a great deal of time attempting to answer. There are many theories that explain the evolution of human tails. Some of the most common theories explain the loss of a tail in human evolution through gene loss. Theories also suggest that tails are lost due to social pressure.

Does the Human Race Need Its Tail? Consider if you will the condition of some of the less than stellar Human Beings on the planet. Is a man with a flabby tail a sign of intelligence? Would a tail have helped humans live more easily in the cold climate without the benefit of thick fur and warmth? Perhaps it would have provided them with a better way to protect themselves in colder environments.

What Causes Acid Rain?

Acid rain is the latest in a long line of environmental issues that seem to be getting worse with each passing year.

According to some environmentalist scientists, acid rain is contributing to many environmental problems worldwide. Instead of restoring plant life to forests, acid rain eats away at sensitive trees and wildlife. In the areas where it has been found, the affected trees are dying at rates much faster than normal. Meanwhile, fish stocks are being threatened as well.

This is not the first time acid deposition has caused drastic changes in the environment. Long before man arrived on the scene, there were already some signs of acidification. The buildup of carbon dioxide and methane by living organisms in the environment has created a greenhouse effect that keeps Earth warm. As carbon dioxide and methane escape into the atmosphere, they react with water and air to form acids. These harmful gases have already had an impact on the atmosphere, but now additional effects from acid deposition could wreak even greater havoc.
