Could An Artificial Intelligence Be Considered A Person Under The Law?

Granting human rights to a computer would degrade human dignity. For instance, when Saudi Arabia granted citizenship to a robot called Sophia, human women, including feminist scholars, objected, noting that the robot was given more rights than many Saudi women have.

Bizarre Cosmic Rays Are Shooting Out of Antarctica and Physicists Can’t Explain It

The Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) in Antarctic detected never before seen “upward-pointing cosmic-ray-like events.” Last week, a group of researchers posted a new theory about the rays measured by ANITA. The group, led by Pennsylvania State University physicist Derek Fox, suggests ANITA may have found evidence of a particle that lies completely outside of the Standard Model of physics.

History Upheaval: How Old Is the Earth and Its Species?

Earlier this year, scientists from New York and Sweden published the results of their sweeping study of 5 million DNA barcodes from about 100,000 different animal species. As reported by phys.org, the results are “sure to jostle, if not overturn, more than one settled idea about how evolution unfolds.” In addition to a shocking absence of genetic diversity, the authors were stunned to conclude that about 9 out of every 10 species on Earth appear to have come into being at about the same time, apparently sometime between 100,000 and 200,000 years ago. Study co-author David Thaler said of the findings, “This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could.” One unavoidable possibility these results raise is articulated in the phys.org report, which asks, “Was there some catastrophic event 200,000 years ago that nearly wiped the slate clean?”

So You’re “Body Sensitive” – How Your EMF is Changing Your Reality

Is your own EMF (electro-magnetic frequency) causing things to happen? Editor’s Note: Higher Journeys Several years ago, I noticed as my husband stood in the breezeway between my laptop in the kitchen and the router in our family room, that the laptop would suddenly lose its wireless connection. When he moved his position, the connection re-established. […]

Evolved To Forgive: People Are More Forgiving Than You’d Think [VIDEO]

Scientists report that humans might be quick to judge, but we may have also evolved to be quick to forgive. A recent study found that when assessing the moral character of others, people cling to good impressions but readily adjust their opinions about those who have behaved badly, according to new research.

Hardwired For Laziness? Tests Show the Human Brain Must Work Hard To Avoid Sloth

Society has encouraged people to be more physically active, yet we are actually becoming less active. A new study offers a possible explanation: Our brains may be innately attracted to sedentary behavior. Electroencephalograms showed that test subjects had to summon extra brain resources when trying to avoid physical inactivity.

Theoretical Physicist Finds “Computer Code” in the Fabric of Space (Video)

The idea that we live in a holographic universe that uses a form of quantum “computer code” to create the physical reality is not a new idea. In the 1940s, some physicists suggested that we live in a “computer generated” universe.
