  1. Brain Science: Optogenetics and Expansion Microscopy | Ed Boyden

    Despite library shelves sagging under the weight of neurology books, what we know about the brain so far is unfledged. MIT professor Edward Boyden explains how research teams are using expansion microscopy to map the densely packed neurons so we can understand how the brain is wired and apply that to human therapies. He also explains a technology called optogenetics (using light to control cells) that he hopes will do many things like restore eyesight, dial back Alzheimer’s disease, and shut down epilepsy seizures. Edward Boyden is a Hertz Foundation fellow and recipient of the prestigious Hertz Foundation Grant for graduate study in the applications of the physical, biological and engineering sciences. With the support of the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, he pursued a PhD in neurosciences from Stanford University. The Hertz Foundation mission is to provide unique financial and fellowship support to the nation’s most remarkable PhD students in the hard sciences. Hertz Fellowships are among the most prestigious in the world, and the foundation has invested over $200 million in Hertz Fellows since 1963 (present value) and supported over 1,100 brilliant and creative young scientists, who have gone on to become Nobel laureates, high-ranking military personnel, astronauts, inventors, Silicon Vall…

  4. The Science of Navy SEAL Superlearning | Jamie Wheal

    How long would it take you to master a new language? A year? 18 months? Longer? For a special operator in the elite Navy SEAL Team 6 it used to take six months of study, but thanks to a combination of physiological and neurological optimization, it’s now down to six weeks – then they’re off in a foreign country navigating the cultural terrain, and engaging with locals and allies. High-performance expert Jamie Wheal spent time at ‘The Mind Gym’, the Navy SEAL training facility, while researching his new book in collaboration with Steven Kotler, Stealing Fire. Here he gives us just a taste of the advantageous technology that is cracking open seemingly super-human skills like accelerated learning, and raising the bar of human performance. Jamie Wheal and Steven Kotler’s book is Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs, and Maverick Scientists Are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work (goo.gl/m3Quy0).

  6. Prof. Rainer Mausfeld: Die Angst der Machteliten vor dem Volk

    Wenn eine überschaubare Gruppe von Menschen dauerhaft über die große Masse Macht ausüben will, ist die Stabilität des Systems nur dann zu erreichen, wenn man die wichtigste Ressource kontrolliert. Wissen.

    Was das Volk nicht weiß, noch nicht einmal erahnt, kann es auch nicht auf die Barrikaden bringen.

    Nach diesem simplen Prinzip herrschen die sogenannten Eliten nun schon seit Tausenden von Jahren über ihre jeweiligen Untertanen. Dabei spielt es keine Rolle, ob ein System sich "Demokratie" nennt oder nicht.

    Immer sind es nur sehr wenige, die bestimmen, was offiziell überhaupt gewusst wird. Umso allergischer reagiert jeder Machtapparat auf sogenannte Whistleblower, die man früher abwertend als Verräter bezeichnete. Verräter wie Snowden destabilisieren die Machtpyramide, indem sie dem Volk, den Massen, die Möglichkeit geben zu erkennen, wie man sie beherrscht. Herrschaft kann aber nur effektiv agieren, wenn sie unsichtbar bleibt.

    Vor allem auf dem Feld der Sozialforschung hat die Elite gegenüber dem Bürger einen enormen Wissensvorsprung. Die Machthaber kennen das Wesen "Mensch" heute derart genau, dass sie ihn bis in die kleinsten Teile zerlegen und manipulieren können und das auch tun. Dass wir alle kaum etwas davon mitbekommen, stützt diese Aussage.

    Wie kann es sein, dass wir z. B. in der BR…
