Every memory leaves its own imprint in the brain. Physicists' attempts to classify all possible phases of matter. What makes a perfect croissant. An animated introduction to the Fourier Transform. Why an old theory of everything is gaining new life. The revolutionary ideas of Thomas Kuhn. Is evolutionary science due for a major overhaul or is talk of ‘revolution’ misguided? What Unicode will make possible. Do we live in four dimensions, as relativity theory says, or ten, as string theory claims? The stick is an unsung hero of human evolution.
I've finally come around to watching Birdman. I quite liked it. I especially liked a seemingly minor detail.
