Today we start our review of the book “Life 3.0” by Max Tegmark. This book claims that greater than human level intelligence is inevitable and then discusses what can be done to keep it safe. Part One introduces the book and discusses the prelude and the first chapter.
Today we look at some of the wonderful inventions and discoveries of Leonardo da Vinci! We cover his work on anatomy, geology, his design of a robotic knight, his design for a practical parachute and more.
Today we answer some Quora questions about physics. We cover string theory, particle-wave duality, thought experiments and more!
Today we go over the achievements of Isaac Newton, focusing on his many hugely important contributions to science.
Environmentalists do not value human life, instead, they value the environment and use anti-life computer models to rationalize this. But, what they are really arguing for is the destruction of most of the human population of Earth.
Today we interview the Spanish physicist Juanma on physics, the role of philosophy in physics and what can be done to improve the state of modern physics.
A discussion of the philosophy of Niels Bohr and some of its influences, such as pragmatism. We will explore these by looking at some Bohr quotes.
Today we discuss some most and least favorite historical figures, discuss the history and future of the show and Ashna discusses her academic background.
We have said that Bohr is irrational. Here we provide some evidence for those claims! We will go over some of them in a future episode. But for now, see what you can make of them. “The very recognition of the limited divisibility of physical processes, symbolized, by the quantum of actions, has justified the […]

That is simply an appeal to authority. There are many things in peer-reviewed papers that are clearly not true, especially in physics today. Now, I think […]
