Is Conscious Materialism Possible?

Is Conscious Materialism Possible?

We have been falling deeper and deeper into the web of materialism. We live in a time where there is a frenzied concentration of our attention on materialistic values that are thrust upon us by the media, peer pressure and so on.

The Surprising Freezing Homeless Boy Experiment

The Surprising Freezing Homeless Boy Experiment

Social experiments are a good way to judge how we as a civilized society place ourselves on the scales of humanity. Sometimes you are left with tears of joy seeing how people can come together and at times your left stumped with the lack of empathy among us. But more than anything else it always makes me wonder, what would I have done if I was there. I find myself in the shoes of the people who wa... »

Benoit Mandelbrot on using Fractals to find Order in Chaos

Benoit Mandelbrot on using Fractals to find Order in Chaos

We chanced upon this amazing talk by the Poland-born French-American mathematician known as the ‘father of fractal geometry’, where he spoke about how he discovered fractals, and how scientists, architects and artists have unconsciously applied fractular geometry to their work. This was one of his last few talks before he left us. What’s even more interesting is not only do these... »
