xkcd: Neutrinos

Relatively speaking.

(via 14-billion-years-later)
Speed of light may have been broken
Okay guys, this one is hot off the press. I’ve only found two sources for this (here and here) that have been posted in the last hour. I have to say that I immediately doubt the validity of this, but I feel I should bring it to your attention anyway.

Reports from our good friends at CERN say that they’ve observed particles traveling at faster than light speeds. For those of you who know a bit about relativity, this ain’t all that cool. The speed of light is basically meant to be the fastest speed there is, and if this wasn’t the case then we may have a major breakdown of Einstein’s theory of relativity.

The scientists at CERN have concluded this based off results in which a beam of neutrinos fired from a particle accelerator in Geneva traveled 434 miles 60 nanoseconds faster than it should have. This may not sound like much, but the error was calculated at 10 nanoseconds and the scientists themselves seem fairly adamant in their results.
If this is true, well, congratulations, we are on the verge of a tremendous (almost unavailable) new scientific development, one that will undoubtedly change our perception of the universe... in the other hand... well, I love "Albie" and even though he never got to achieve the establishment of a unified field theory, he still is "THE" physicist of all time. if proven true, that something (neutrinos) can move faster than the speed of light, well, bye-bye to the unquestionability of the Theory of Relativity.. and that just feels wrong. Maybe they can try a scientific mash up, and come up with a reinterpretation of the concepts already established.. OR maybe we'll be finally able to travel in time :)

The Attic

by Eric Zelinski

alter-ego's giggle

So... today was a big day for my alter-ego "marysoul" :) Don't worry, I'm not crazy*... well... not any more than you already know! You see, I have another blog on tumblr, one that is all about art, illustration, photography, design and architecture. No personal musings, no blah blah blah... 99.9% of artsy pics and ideas. Not mine, mind you, just a "convoluted bunch" of artsy images from artists and creators from all around the world. It is quite an interesting hobby. Since twitter was too intense b/c of the posting schedule responsibilities (love you still guys!), this other system, tumblr, it is easier to manage and has become a great source of artistic knowledge to me. 
Well, the thing is today I was featured by the main site, the home to all blogs tumblr and I gained 1500 new followers in less than 6 hours! So now I have over 3000 followers (and counting) and that, my friends, is very nice. 
Of course I had a whole bunch of followers on twitter as well, at the time. But this is a completely different scenario. I'm followed on the Yerbabuena's blog b/c of my views on arts, my choices picking one creation over another and that is absolutely, completely fantastic! And because of it I'm able to talk with artists, designers and architects from all around the world, learning from their professional and personal experiences. Resuming, It is kinda of cathartic since I never got to finish an art-related career. It may as well be as they say, those can't do, teach... in this case, those can't create, critique :) 
So yeah, this was absolutely self indulging but.. I just had to say it!
(Thank you to the people at tumblr whom featured me on the Tumblr Radar and to Andrew Banneckere, whose work - unbeknownst to him - got me featured in the first place)

when there's no where-else to go, just look back

Is it just me or the visual trend is staring to look a lot like a rehearsal of the late 80's movies of John Hughes with a twist of Say Anything?

Another type of "Sutra"

I'm loving Trendlands' article on Lana Sutra by Erik Ravelo for Benetton. Loving the colors, the artistically handmade effort and of course, the end result. Oh so often, the artsy world try to come up with original, creative ways to interpret the Kamasutra, thus far, in my opinion this is one of the most clever ones.

quote of the day #75

“Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow... Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead.”
—Joss Whedon
