Joe Rogan v Scientific Skepticism, Suzuki on overpopulation + Nasa Daily Wallpapers

Word up folks,

I have been quiet for a little bit. It`s been quite busy in this life of mine, and soon I will be back on track… as I often say *sly eyes*.

We will begin with one of my favourite people, Joe Rogan.

Below is a video of him speaking with so-called scientific skeptic, Brian Dunning. A writer and producer who focuses on skepticism, Brian Dunning takes Rogan to task of many of his beliefs (and beliefs which Dunning accuses Joe of holding), and there`s certainly friction.

Next we have a very interesting (frightening too) talk from renowned environmentalist David Suzuki on overpopulation.

In my own theorizing (and planning which no one has asked for) with regard to human civilization, I tend to promote moving out and abroad onto other planets, and into a system of human flourishing in the near vacuum of space. But, as David points out, and as Asimov alludes to in some of his works, to think about expansion in this way is to simply delay overcrowding / resource depletion. Instead, we ought to be thinking about achieving and sustaining the proper level of planetary / galactic occupancy in-line with the holding capacity of whatever environment(s) we inhabit.

And finally, a neat app (which I have yet to install – computer problems) which purports to set your desktop to a daily wallpaper which features stunning high resolution images directly from the NASA Image of the Day gallery.

That’s all for today, folks.

Peace,

About Ossington

I often think but seldom share these thoughts. And if the product of my thinking is to affect anything but my own sense of satisfaction, then surely it must be shared. Here you may try to know what I believe to know.
