The content here is mirrored from social media and sites, I’m in a quest to catalog my thoughts and ideas in a single place. I’m not sure if this is the right place, but I’m trying it out.

I think we could learn a thing or two from conservation scientists and museum curators.

Imagine disassembling a huge ancient structure and carry it across the globe just to reassemble it back for exhibitions. Image

That’s what I call zero planning holidays.

No destination, no bookings in advance and no schedule.

I get in the car with some loosely agreed milestones and anywhere in between is a great experience. Image

“Humans have a propensity to believe fallacies based on limited information, a phenomenon known as cargo cult science. While large language models (LLMs) like GPT-4 exhibit behaviours indicative of intelligence, they lack the rigour of scientific inquiry."

If LK-99 is indeed reproduced and peer reviewed, we’re entering a new phase of our tech tree. That’s why I believe we see a lot of reluctance and skepticism on accepting this;

But you can also add a foot note on the discovery not being a product of so called “western science”.
