Our Fear and Our Defensive Mechanism

There are many things we fear in real life.

Many things can act as triggers in this extremely dynamic environment of ours to induce fear, and horror.

We fear, because we think. The more we think, the more fear it is instilled in us.

The natural fear, is the fear of death. It’s an animal instinct, a cell call of life. This living organism doesn’t want to die mentality.

We fear because we think we might be destroyed. ...READ MORE

Terraforming Mars?

In what ways can you terraform Mars?

The atmosphere composition of Mars is 95% CO2 and 5% N2. In this way, you can’t simply plant trees on it in hope of them miraculously producing oxygen. Because they will all die with no O2 at all. Elon Musk is preparing to send people onto Mars. The best possible option we can now make, yet still very very challenging, is to make a remote station there with enclosed protective shell. And we have to bring tons of oxygen and pump them periodically inside the station in order for every living thing in there to stay alive. ...READ MORE

Medicine in China and the U.S.: Observations from an American Medical Student – Review Version

Inspired by a post from Stephen Eigles, Medicine in China and the U.S.: Observations from an American Medical Student, I come to this post about Chinese medical system.

The post was written in 1998, Spring, 2 decades ago. However, the insights in this post are still pretty relevant to this day.

Some, mispractices, have been eradicated from China for quite some time now, but the rather baffling and ominous wrongdoings are still very persistent to this day. ...READ MORE

Individuality and Impression, How We Remember People

We remember people by multiple signs and signals.

To know someone, it is not only from the person’s apperance, but also many other elements that relate to this very individual. This is what we called, individuality.

Though most of the time someone remembers a person by his/her face, the overall appearance.

However, when you pick up the phone, the voice from the other side let you know instantly who this person is if the caller is one of your friends. ...READ MORE

The Famous Train Example of Relativity

The famous example of relativity by Einstein was the moving train problem.

When one man stand before a fast moving train, and two lightening strikes, he’ll see the two lightening strikes appear at the same time.

However, if the man stands on the train as the train is moving from left to right, he’ll see the the two lightening strikes appear at different time, as the right lightening strike appears first and the left lightening strike appears later. ...READ MORE

Hoax

Suppose your senses are lying to you, which makes all of your perceptions none other than illusions.

If I am, in a simulation machine, which all of my senses are artificially simulated, the senses are so real I can’t tell whether I am in a simulation machine.

If I am indeed in a simulation machine, how come I never wake up once to know the real world? The hypothesis is that I live inside a simulation machine, the opposition is that I never wake up to know I live inside a simulation machine. ...READ MORE
