There are not too many recorded video’s of this man,but it’s his way of thinking that is remarkable.

The open mind of Feynman reveals bit by bit the logical orders to the secrets of science.

Mr. Feynman believes in only one method of proof.
Quote:

“Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that’s not why we do it.”


Feynman being a scientific icon 

There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom” was a lecture given by physicist Richard Feynman at an American Physical Society meeting at Caltech on December 29, 1959.[1] Feynman considered the possibility of direct manipulation of individual atoms as a more powerful form of synthetic chemistry than those used at the time. The talk went unnoticed and did not inspire the conceptual beginnings of the field. In the 1990s it was rediscovered and publicised as a seminal event in the field, probably to boost the history of nanotechnology with Feynman’s reputation.

Feynman also suggested that it should be possible, in principle, to make nanoscale machines that “arrange the atoms the way we want”, and do chemical synthesis by mechanical manipulation.



What’s it like to be pals with a genius? Physicist Leonard Susskind spins a few stories about his friendship with the legendary Richard Feynman, discussing his unconventional approach to problems both serious and … less so.

Recycled Electrons

This article is publish pending until we figure out where the used electrons are located,

so they can be recirculated and recycled thru the distribution system.

My Free Science Lab furnishes you these pages to be displayed on your monitor with recycled electrons. Electricity is the movement of electrons and they are neither destroyed or created in the process. So enjoy and remember to recycle.

How trees talk – http://wp.me/p4l9xh-12A

You’ll never experience a walk in the forest the same way again after viewing this eighteen minute TED Talks lecture (June, 2016) by professor of ecology Suzanne Simard who explains how she used hard science (while out-running grizzlies) to discover trees talk to each other. From identifying “mother trees”, the hubs of vast symbiotic mycorrhizal networks, to suggesting ways to regenerate forests battling climate change, Simard clearly outlines how we need to change our relationships with these “supercooperators”.

Can Organic Farming Feed Us All? | Worldwatch Institute

The only people who think organic farming can feed the world are delusional hippies, hysterical moms, and self-righteous organic farmers. Right?

Actually, no. A fair number of agribusiness executives, agricultural and ecological scientists, and international agriculture experts believe that a large-scale shift to organic farming would not only increase the world’s food supply, but might be the only way to eradicate hunger.

This probably comes as a surprise. After all, organic farmers scorn the pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and other tools that have become synonymous with high-yield agriculture. Instead, organic farmers depend on raising animals for manure, growing beans, clover, or other nitrogen-fixing legumes, or making compost and other sources of fertilizer that cannot be manufactured in a chemical plant but are instead grown-which consumes land, water, and other resources. (In contrast, producing synthetic fertilizers consumes massive amounts of petroleum.) Since organic farmers can’t use synthetic pesticides, one can imagine that their fields suffer from a scourge of crop-munching bugs, fruit-rotting blights, and plant-choking weeds. And because organic farmers depend on rotating crops to help control pest problems, the same field won’t grow corn or wheat or some other staple as often.

To begin with, organic farming isn’t as easy as farming with chemicals. Instead of choosing a pesticide to prevent a pest outbreak, for example, a particular organic farmer might consider altering his crop rotation, planting a crop that will repel the pest or one that will attract its predators-decisions that require some experimentation and long-term planning. 

  Farmers don’t claim to be gods,althou farmers feed people.

Agreed on this today,hunger has been due primarily to inadequate income and distribution rather than absolute food scarcity. In this regard, a biofuels economy may actually help to reduce hunger and poverty.
