Trump Campaign Was Deeply Co-opted By Russian Influence Operation

While special counsel Robert Mueller was unable to establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian government, his redacted report paints a picture of a campaign deeply co-opted by a multi-prong Russian influence campaign. The report details how over several months in the summer of 2016, different Russian intelligence operatives were able to alternately use the operation as an instrument for its own ends, receive inside information on the inner workings of the Trump cam...

10 Krishnamurti quotes on the meaning of life

The Indian philosopher taught that concepts get in the way of observation, and only by ridding yourself of concepts can you experience freedom. Reared to be a Theosophist leader, Krishnamurti rejected that system (along with all others) in formulating his outlook. His books touch upon topics such as education reform, physics, and meditation. None Of all the philosophers on my bookshelves, Jiddu Krishnamurti might be the hardest to implement. Born in India in 1895, he was initially groomed to be...

The return of the 'stoned ape' theory

Terence McKenna first proposed psychedelic mushrooms as the trigger for our rapid cognitive evolution. McKenna's theory was called the "Stoned Ape Hypothesis." The hypothesis is being revisited as a possible answer to a vexxing evolutionary riddle.

Sure, erectus stood upright — a big, um, step forward — but with the emergence of Homo sapiens, we see...

"The F.B.I.’s surveillance of [John] Lennon is a reminder of how easily domestic spying can become unmoored from any legitimate law enforcement purpose."

"What is more surprising, and ultimately more unsettling, is the degree to which the surveillance turns out to have been intertwined with electoral politics. At the time of the John Sinclair rally, there was talk that Lennon would join a national concert tour aimed at encouraging young people to get involved in politics — and at defeating President Nixon, who was running for re-election. There were plans to end the tour with a huge rally at the Republican National Convention. The F.B.I.’s timing...

The internet made us weird – just not in the right way

Technological advancements were supposed to free up our time and free up our minds, leading to a cognitive surplus. That hasn't happened, says Douglas Rushkoff.The digital media environment deals in absolutes: yes or no; thumbs up or thumbs down.

New study: Like humans, world's smallest bears can mimic faces too

Sun bears imitate each other's faces during play. This is the first time this has been seen in non-primate, non-domesticated animals. They're mostly solitary, so this is likely innate, as opposed to a learned behavior. None One of the traditional staples of a performing comic's repertoire are impersonations. In the recent film, All About Nina, in fact, a competitive audition for a network comedy gig pits comedians against each other based on their facility for mimicry. The ability to capture ...

Your romantic partner is probably less intelligent than you think, suggests new study

It's now well known that many of us over-estimate our own brainpower. In one study, more than 90 per cent of US college professors famously claimed to be better than average at teaching, for instance – which would be highly unlikely. Our egos blind us to our own flaws.But do we have an even more inflated view of our nearest and dearest? It seems we do – that's the conclusion of a new paper published in Intelligence journal, which has shown that we consistently view our romantic partners as being...
