Parked this one here as well as elsewhere as the scale of Turings work is certainly on a scale with Einstein and Newton....and like the atomic bomb....resulted in a shorter war and the saving of hundreds of thousands if not millions of lives.

This is an excellent bio CODEBREAKER

In some ways it has more impact than The Imitation Game on a wider scale tho the drama in the latter is excellent.

It's a good pair to pick up and in no better way can you understand the birth of the digital age - seeing Joan Clark who was the only woman at Bletchley in in the core group really brings it alive and out of history.

This is a snip



worth chasing down....and The Imitation Game should see an Oscar

Well deserved...

simple but illustrative of the effect of gravity and warped space on objects. There are a bunch of other similar videos on the right when you source this.

A lecture by one of my favorites.

from


The Final Dennis Sciama Memorial Lecture delivered by Professor David Deutsch

Dennis Sciama's 1959 book The Unity of the Universe was ostensibly about the Steady State theory, a cosmological/astrophysical theory which was to be comprehensively and irreversibly refuted by observations only a few years later. But it wasn't really about that. It was really about an idea that was not refuted and is deeper than any cosmology, namely the unity referred to in the title. Whether by coincidence or not, it is re-emerging as important in my current preoccupation, constructor theory.


I like to imagine ...

Thanking God for sparing you in a natural disaster is like
sending a thank-you note to a serial killer for stabbing the family next door

Question: If you could live forever, would you and why? Best Answer
