"What if you could use 100% of your brain for cognitive abilities? What kind of secret powers could you unlock?"


List of secret powers unlocked:

  • loss of motor functions
  • loss of bowel control
  • loss of all senses
  • loss of temperature control
  • loss of relation to any physical spaces
  • loss of heartbeat control
  • death

Lucy, in theaters this Friday.

Also, 100% of your neurons firing at once would result in a deadly epileptic seizure :D

Radiohead Rehearsing, Recording in September

Radiohead took a year off, and in that time, Thom Yorke focused on Atoms for Peace, Jonny Greenwood worked with orchestras, Philip Selway prepped a new solo album, and Colin Greenwood did some charity work. But when summer’s over, the boys are getting back to work.

As NME points out, Jonny Greenwood recently had a chat with Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC Radio 6, where he addressed the state of the band. “We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it’s sounding,” he said. So there you have it: In two months’ time, recording may start on the follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs.

“I am not solid, but hollow. I feel behind my eyes a numb, paralyzed cavern, a pit of hell, a mimicking nothingness.”

"We are conscious of an animal in us, which awakens in proportion as our higher nature slumbers. It is reptile and sensual, and perhaps cannot be wholly expelled; like the worms which, even in life and health, occupy our bodies. Possibly we may withdraw from it, but never change its nature. I fear that it may enjoy a certain health of its own; that we may be well, yet not pure."

Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“Today the network of relationships linking the human race to itself and to the rest of the biosphere is so complex that all aspects affect all others to an extraordinary degree. Someone should be studying the whole system, however crudely that has to be done, because no gluing together of partial studies of a complex nonlinear system can give a good idea of the behavior of the whole.” -Murray Gell-Mann

“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.” Neil deGrasse Tyson (via larmoyante)

Reynald Drouhin’s latest project called “Landscape Monolith” consists of a series of digitally manipulated images, certain parts of which are turned upside down in the shape of the mysterious monolith seen in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
