Video: The Great Debate – Can Science Tell Us Right From Wrong?

I believe that if you are a person who exercises reason and rationality in your everyday life, then you are a scientist at heart. Without science and critical thinking, societies will not flourish and develop. This debate covers all angles, from philosophy to social science to physics and biology, all of these fields can only help us understand the world if we use them in a rational way.  Very interesting debate. I have selected two options to watch, you can either watch the full debate, which requires few hours of your time or watch Lawrence Krauss’s speech which, for me, one of the best speeches given along with Sam Harris and Steven Pinker. Enjoy!

For the Full debate watch this:

Video: When Bjork Met Attenborough

Music, science and technology. The moment that I have been waiting for has arrived, and words cannot describe my feelings right now. Watching inspiring people like Bjork and David Attenborough discuss the science of sound has made my dream of a proper collaboration for this combination come true!

The beauty of nature is instilled in Bjork’s music in every sound, and every beat is manifested in visual reality. Music is so powerful, it can be witnessed in our brains, as different sides of it are lit when we listen to music, flesh morphing into the violent light movements of an equalizer board. What I love about Bjork is that she is scientific with her music, way ahead of her time, and once mixed in with that special intrinsic Icelandic relationship with nature, the results are quite extraordinary.  And all this excitement, what is the source of my very own interest in all of this?  There are many reasons but the oldest is a distant memory of when I was 9 years old, as I happen to complain to my father; “Why do people always sing about love, why don’t they sing about science and agriculture?”  Well, there you go!
