Big Views. Big Thoughts. Philosophy and Science.

It amazes me how early philosophers came up with science and space ideas later shown to be true. Epicurus and Democritus and atoms, for instance. I really enjoy The Big View, which explores philosophy and science. From Buddhism to Quantum Mechanics, The Big View explores the relationships and ideas of these systems.

From the site:

This website is about philosophy in the widest sense. It includes science, religion, mythology and other fields of thought that are not within the traditional scope of philosophy. However, it makes not much sense to treat these fields separately. Everything is connected. If one views anything from any possible angle, it can only increase understanding.

The Big View

Breaking News: Exoplanet War Has Erupted on Planet Xenos

At least in Exoplanet War 2.0 it has, a free, online MMORTS game.

From the site:

You start your journey a small, non-developed colony on Planet Xenos which serves as your central base…needless to say this colony could do with some improvements.

Luckily for you then that you have several willing workers on hand who are waiting for your order to start building and upgrading structures that will prove to be the vital building blocks in creating your empire on Xenos.

Headbangin’ in a Heavy Metal Universe

The Heavy Metal Universe! That’s the title that got my attention over at ScienceBlogs. I happen to like heavy metal music and Ethan Siegel did a headbangin’ up job describing heavy metals out there.
