  • "Life: What a concept!"

    A few of you may remember me making reference to Edge.com regarding a "meeting of the minds" which tackled the meaning(s) of Life (if it does indeed exist). I brought it up in the "Are We Alone" Thread: http://www.tacticalgamer.com/sandbox...-we-alone.html.

    Anyways, Edge has compiled a complete transcript of the Event here:
    http://www.edge.org/documents/life/Life_Full.pdf

    Also, of course there are complete Bios along with streaming videos of their discussions here:
    http://www.edge.org/documents/life/life_index.html

    I believe the videos are a bit edited, so the transcripts are the best shot at obtaining ALL the information, but there's still plenty to digest in the vids. (like 3+ hours)

    I highly recommend subscribing the this website, it does a good job of bringing the Third Culture in view of the masses. The site is a bit jumbled since there is so much info. on so many different topics, but with a little patience you can just about find anything on any major Scientific or Technological topic.

    p.s.
    I find Dyson's idea of life arising from a semi-permeable membrane fascinating. (rather than simply a random spike in a primordial soup)
    Actually, everything in those vids. is fascinating. Discussions anyone?
