A system that can predict us better is exponentially more valuable than the rest. And thus, a race to make us more obscure and predictable is on.

As the pandemic, climate change and social unrest (to name a few)make us fear our world is falling apart, the allure from the…


We search desperately for any sign that we’re not alone in the universe, while treating life on this planet so callously that we’re killing it off.

If you haven’t heard, there is a mass extinction of life happening now…and it is our fault. …


How much worse must things get before we wake up?

We are getting sick, the planet is getting sick, yet we continue pointing political fingers at each other as we helplessly drown inside a turbulent wave pool of pettiness and rage towards one another.

While those at the bottom are…


From the depths of the deepest oceans to the ecosystem of our own bodies, microorganisms are the unmatched rulers of our planet.

Archaea (bacteria-like microbes) are one of the major domains of life on Earth and have been found in many extreme environments, including hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor…

While the world experiences the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are witnessing a sobering demonstration of the powerful movement of a virus.

There are many infectious circumstances we live with every day. Fear and anger can cripple us, disrupting progress and the well-being of our communities. …
