Stunned scientists discover that plants ‘learn like humans’ and intelligently adapt to their environments … are plants conscious? — The Most Revolutionary Act
*Let’s stop dividing each other, and start treating each other like human beings!
Can you think like a Divergent from the novel/movie ‘Divergent’?
There are currently over 7 billion people living on the planet right now.
How would you reduce the number of people living on Earth’s surface to at most 1 billion without killing a single one of them? (note the emphasis..)
Better yet, could you do it within the next decade? Can you keep the population under 1 billion continuously? All the resources and tech currently available to us humans is available to you, and you must respect every single person’s free-will.
*Note: Secretly bringing about a pandemic, or instigating a world war via proxy methods, or any other covert technique to compel a lot of people to die, counts as ‘killing’…
As usual, responses expected, and I may post my answers in a week or more.
That’s pretty cool.
It looks like ancient humans got around. It’s pretty well known now that most of us have Neanderthal DNA, but apparently a lot us also have Denisovan DNA: Extinct human cousin gave Tibetans advantage at high elevation — ScienceDaily.
Tibetans were able to adapt to high altitudes thanks to a gene picked up when their ancestors mated with a species of human they helped push to extinction, according to a new report by University of California, Berkeley, scientists.
An unusual variant of a gene involved in regulating the body’s production of hemoglobin — the molecule that carries oxygen in the blood — became widespread in Tibetans after they moved onto the high-altitude plateau several thousand years ago. This variant allowed them to survive despite low oxygen levels at elevations of 15,000 feet or more, whereas most people develop thick blood at high altitudes, leading to cardiovascular problems.

This post is so awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Came across this video – ‘Always #LikeAGirl.’ Liked it. Thought of sharing it here. It’s been viewed over thirteen million times and has gone viral. The makers of the video say,”Boys and girls are told different things growing up, but the overriding message is clear: ideological masculinity is to be aimed for, and ideological femininity (AKA acting ‘like a girl’) is to be avoided at all costs.” This is exactly why a video like this is important. It shouts out loud that the words ,”Like a Girl” are not an insult because being a girl is not an insult in the first place. High time people get that.
Interesting thing is that just when i was wondering if i could somehow access another video , made with the same sentiment but with respect to boys, i found another one entitled – ‘The Mask You Live In.’ This video makes us…

I think you hit the nail on the head about equality.
Personally I think the best we can do is to say that everyone is a human being and that all human beings have inherent rights that cannot be tampered with — like right to life, right to speak, right to defense.
However even then that’s been a wishful fantasy so long as there has always been some form of governance ruling over us.
It’s one of the reasons why I’d love to see Anarchy tried somewhere, to see if having no rulers actually ensures the basic rights of human beings.
Or maybe we’re in need of some further evolution…
Equality – what is it and do we have it?
In my opinion equality is the state of being equal; equal in status, rights, and opportunities.
Therefore I now ask, are we born equal?
My answer is a resounding no, we are not.
Why not, well; what are the significant factors relating to how we view or obtain equality? How do we decide whether there is a lack of equality in life and understand why it is lacking?
Money, background, status and connections are often what matters most and contributes to making you equal or unequal in life. These things, or lack of them, are often why we are treated as we are treated, differently.
This hegemony upon equality begets a dangerous attitude, because it makes any country stagnant. Therefore how can this promote equality?
Equality could after all be freedom. It could change everything.
Yet, in most countries it…
