When was the last time you bought anything made in Russia?
“This is the hope, that Europe now realises the danger and starts a green Manhattan project” (Yuval Noah Harari).

Music that kills. Literally.
”In our effort to save the climate, are we destroying the environment” (Michael Shellenberger)?

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.

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).
