01) Humans Are a Form of Alien – Luna | Street Epistemology


“Luna believes humans came from an alien “energy”.”

However silly this interview may be…I think she has a good point, regarding perception.

It’s not that it makes something outside of yourself automatically true…but cultural perceptions are fluid…And a lot of how we relate to things [Do we see it as good, bad or indifferent?], depends on cultural perception.

Cultural perception is so fluid, in fact…that words and concepts typically get forgotten over time…and left behind.

01) Robotic contact lens that allows users to zoom in by blinking eyes revealed by scientists

“Device mimics natural electric signals in human eyeball

The lens is made from polymers that expand when electric current is applied.

It is controlled using five electrodes surrounding the eye which act like muscles. When the polymer becomes more convex the lens effectively zooms in.

“The system developed in the current study has the potential to be used in visual prostheses, adjustable glasses, and remotely operated robotics in the future,” researchers wrote in the paper published in Advanced Functional

01) 78 Yr Old Filmmaker David Hoffman Reveals His Fears


“Some of my subscribers have asked me to present some of the challenges me in this life and how I deal with them. That’s why I made this video. It’s about some of my fears, my anxieties, my insecurities. Hypochondria. Travel phobia. Social uncomfortablenesses ( This may not be a real word but I like it), and the challenge I face that we all face as human beings–that life is uncertain and that things change all the time. It doesn’t make me comfortable for sure, but it is reality for sure.”

01) Theists are Changing the Topic on You


“Christians…you can never tell whether they’re being dishonest or clueless when they address atheism. They so often seem to make up a version of atheism that doesn’t exist and then attack that strawman.

Worse, they assume that their religion’s burden of proof is some sort of horserace against non-belief…while ignoring other religions as if they don’t exist.
None of which is true.

All we can do, I suppose, it try to educate them…but this guy’s comments on his video are, of course, turned off.

Coward.

Base rule of thumb…

If anyone has approached you with intentions of convincing you of something…it is their burden alone, to substantiate their claim to a convincing degree.

Just because they pull you into all of this, does not mean that you are obliged to disprove their claims.

On the other hand…if an atheist is the one instigating this discussion, or if it is a formal debate on the existence of a god…that is fundamentally different…and an atheist does take on some degree of burden, because they are trying to psychologically alter someone else [who themselves did not, necessarily, ask for the encounter].

A lot of this depends on who is trying to change who.

If you are just there…and somebody else subjectively decides they are going to make you believe in something…you have no obligation whatsoever, to prove them wrong.

01) Inside The Secret World of Incels – BBC Documentary 2019


“Told primarily through the personal stories of three men who identify as incels, the documentary explores how loneliness and social isolation can push unattractive young men into disturbing behavior. But the film also delves behind the sensationalist media headlines to unearth some of the reasons for incels’ existence – many feel alienated and are enduring difficulties, like mental health issues or traumatic upbringings.”
