Is it possible to read minds? Psychics claim to have the ability. It seems like advertisers are doing it online already, doesn’t it? Now, neurotechnology and AI can translate brain waves into complex pictures, sound, and speech. So far, this … Continue reading Will Mind Reading Tech Become Part of Everyday Life?
In the search for extraterrestrials and UFOs, there’s almost never any really compelling physical evidence. Photos and videos are always absurdly blurry, and any physical evidence is usually scoffed at immediately, even called “total bullshit” outright. It just goes with the blurry grey … Continue reading The Search for Extraterrestrials Remains In a Grey Area and Intentionally Absurd
It’s been called the “most dangerous rock in the Solar System,” named after an Egyptian deity, the Bennu bird.
