Re: Re: Can we increase our intelligence?
Thanks for the response. You're right - the question is practically boundless, but I think I was just inviting random thoughts on the subject, rather than concrete answers, anyway. I've read James Flynn, Howard Gardner's, and Charles Murray's theories and thoughts on intelligence, and it's amazing how tenuous the links between all their speculations are.
Anyway, fun to think about.
- Patients from low-income neighborhoods are most at risk of negative health impacts.
- But increased longevity is a cause for celebration, says Ashton Applewhite, not doom and gloom.
Can you make solar power work when the sun goes down? You can, and Dubai is about to run a city that way.
- A new concentrated solar plant is under construction in Dubai.
- When it opens next year, it will be the largest plant of its kind on Earth.
- Concentrated solar power solves the problem of how to store electricity in ways that solar pannels cannot.
- The research raises many ethical questions and puts to the test our current understanding of death.
What's dead may never die, it seems
An ethical gray matter
The dilemma is unprecedented.
