Kilogram gets a new definition

Currently, it is defined by the weight of a platinum-based ingot called “Le Grand K” which is locked away in a safe in Paris. On Friday, researchers meeting in Versailles voted to get rid of it in favour of defining a kilogram in terms of an electric current. The decision was made at the General Conference on Weights and Measures“.

If time, as we perceive it, is a function of human cognition and perception then how could music, as we perceive it, not be a human “construct”. Nevertheless, this is the stuff you use when you want to blow minds. Also, Isaac Newton. Was he human though? I am not entirely convinced.

Seems like this is, at least partial, validation of calls by people like Sam Harris for a more direct study of human consciousness (and other, non-human, types, if at all possible).

‘The next best thing to a sexual fantasy’ – hanging out at London’s all-night bagel bakery

In the spring of 1997—five years after this video was made—I lived at the very south end of Brick Lane in Attlee House at Toynbee Hall, as an exchange student attending London Guildhall University. At least once a week, late at night when everything else was closed, we sent a party of volunteers (the hungriest among us, I imagine) all the way to the other end of Brick Lane to get bagels. ‘Always open’ was a rare thing at the border between the city and the east end in those days. (And, yes, salmon and cream cheese was my favourite too.)
