Science & reality today: The language of nature: We are all connected …

As I remained glued to the Internet following every update posted regarding this immense wildfire that has altered not just the landscape but also the lives of so many, it is easy for me to become depressed. Everyone deals with tragedy and hardship differently, but have you ever wondered where this sense of angst or […]

Science and Reality Today: Sean Carroll, cosmologist …

As you may remember, I have cited the work of theoretical physicist and acclaimed author Sean Carroll in previous columns. Yet it wasn’t until recently that I had the honor of interviewing Dr. Carroll, one of the most recognizable popularizers of science today. So, without further ado, enjoy: HT: Good morning, Dr. Carroll. I am […]

Science and Reality Today: Why it may not be a good thing to boldly go …

First off, with all the news coverage this issue has received recently, I think now would be a good time to come out of the closet and announce myself to the world: I am a Trekkie and proud of it! Phew, that was a load off my shoulders, but I digress. After enjoying the movie […]

Science and Reality Today: Shedding light on what was once dark, the mystery of dark matter …

Imagine you are a physicist doing research outside of Geneva, Switzerland, these days. It’s like when you were a kid driving back home with your parents from an awful family get-together. As you turn to look outside the window, you see all these kids playing and running around in a gigantic bouncy house. They’re riding […]

Science & Reality Today: The best free entertainment online …

In our hectic everyday lives, we always try to find entertaining sources of distraction. Recently, my distractions have become Facebook (to the annoyance of some) and YouTube. If you are like me, then you have probably also come across debates between scientists from various disciplines and religious leaders of different denominations. While many of us […]

Science and Reality Today: Biocentrism and the universe as the expression of life itself …

I still remember my earliest childhood memories of looking up at the stars and having a feeling that even though I was down here and they were so far away we were somehow connected. It was almost a sense of yearning to be one with the stars, which made me want to be an astronaut […]

Science & Reality Today: It’s all relative so let’s take a moment to ponder …

As I held my mother in her final moments on that early morning of May 2011, I experienced so many emotions all at once. Sad that I would not see her again or hear her voice, angry that I was not there for her more, relieved that she was no longer in pain, you name […]

Science and Reality Today: How truly free are we? A scientific point of view …

Before we start, let’s play a quick game. Let’s play “Think of someone you have met.” Ready? OK. Please close your eyes and think of anyone you have ever met. Do you have someone in mind? Was it my elementary school friend, Raul? Probably not, but it was for me. Even if it wasn’t Raul, […]

Science and Reality Today: Death is a portal …

We all wish we could stop the hands of time and look the way we did when we were high school seniors. Nationwide the cosmetic, beauty supply and perfume store industry has a combined annual revenue of about $11 billion. The plastic surgery industry had a revenue of $10 billion in 2011 with 9.2 million […]

Science & Reality Today: Something from nothing? …

At one time, we have all been part of that great philosophical debate — “What is nothing?” We can try to imagine nothing, we can try to contemplate what nothing looks and sounds like (just turn off the lights and mute the television) or close your eyes and put earmuffs on.
