1. I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature and enjoy learning more every day. Look for instance at these mushrooms realising millions of microscopic spores to propagate.

🧵 A thread about the beauty of planet earth, our only home.

2. That’s right, it’s our only home. That means we have to be extra careful, we don’t have a spare.

When it heats up, or loses it’s complex ecosystems, we will all be in trouble.

NASA took this photo of the dark side of the moon from 1 million miles away.

1. Suppose an alien spaceship will land on earth next week.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

2. I guess their first description would be ecstatic.

Hidden in the fast, cold, and dark universe, they discovered a blue planet that brims with an incredible diversity of life, aided by ideal living conditions.

3. But:

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.

🌳Après les balades dans la nature, en randonnée ou en plongée, posons nous et prenons le temps pour d'un thread d'observation la #nature pour voir si la copier n'est pas mieux que de s'encombrer de calculs parfois complexes et sans certitude de résultat
#biomimétisme #conception
⚠️Encore une fois, pas de généralisation à "la nature, c'est mieux", tout au plus, comme tout bon concepteur, inspirons-nous de tout ce qui existe, quelque soit la personne, la société, la nation ou le processus naturel l'ayant engendré.
🚶‍♂️Dans notre balade mentale (excellente chaîne #YouTube par ailleurs), plein de termes s'entrechoquent ...

#Biomimétisme : Un processus d'innovation et une ingénierie. Il s'inspire des formes, matières, propriétés, processus et fonctions du vivant

We had our department's doctoral students' meeting today. High time to share more about the topic I'm working on for my dissertation!

All please welcome #evolution of #altruism!
Put simply, altruism means unconditionally helping another. You might think it's a human trait, but it's actually present in lots of animal species! Let's have a look at some.

In the previous tweet, you could see an example of guarding against predators. Is that altruism?
Keeping guard - called sentinel behavior - makes you more exposed and vulnerable to predators, while it protects others in your group.

Is there a benefit for the sentry?
We'll get to that! Meerkat sentry. Credit: Emily P. Robinson, Fight for Wildlif

Après la randonnée, passons à la #plongée pour voir si l'évolution ne serait pas le meilleur des processus d'#optimisation. Pas de généralisation"la nature, c'est mieux", les formules "dame nature", "à voulu", autre joyeuseté ne seront donc que des tournures poétiques. #DarwinWin Hammer shark skull by x-ray
Les #sphyrnidae (ou requins marteaux) sont une famille #poisson qui, vous le savez peut-être déjà, a l'originalité de ne pas être profilé comme les autres. Une tête plate, comme d'autre #requin, mais large formant un T caractéristique.
Les biologistes nous affirment que cette forme permet un meilleur #odorat et les yeux aux extrémités du T une meilleure #vue. Je traduis à ma façon :

+ de place pour les capteurs #optiques, #nociceptifs et #électromagnétiques (grâce aux ampoules de #Lorenzini).

Leather jackets that are a style statement today (unfortunately!) may have been a trend from the Pleistocene era! Here’s how researchers from @MPIWG found evidence of early humans who wore leather clothes around 100,000 years ago!

Read: weather.com/en-IN/india/sc…

📸: E Y Hallett Image
The researchers unearthed 62 bones from layers dating from the Pleistocene era that appeared to have been used as tools. Early humans made these specialised bone tools to skin animals and then processed these skins for fur and leather.
Researchers also found broad, rounded end objects called spatulates, ideal for scraping & removing internal connective tissues from leathers & pelts during the hide or fur-working process. A whale tooth was also retrieved, which appeared to have been used to flake stone.

Thread: #HeartfeltThanks for this @Pioneer_Prod. Would you be offended if I say you're doing the work of God? (1

What are the commonalities among these three?
1. Marxist theory of surplus-value
2. Freudian theory of Libido, aka Id
3. Lévi-Strauss theory of Structural Anthropology
You must listen and try to decipher the CBC Massey Lectures delivered by #George #Steiner back in 1974 to answer the above tweet.
I have the greatest respect for this polyglot scholar par excellence.
So was Karl #Marx and his #Hegelian Materialistic #Dialectic that explained the economic history of social #evolution using scientific processes, a by-product of #Romanticism that had swept European Intellectual and Literary Circles?

The recent outbreaks of #Zika Virus in #Kerala has renewed interest in this virus. This tweetorial explains some key aspects about the virus and why we should be actively using #genomics for #GeneticEpidemiology Image
The disease in most people is mild. Majority of people infected with Zika virus DO NOT develop symptoms. Symptoms are generally mild including fever, rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise, and headache, and usually last for 2–7 days.

Death is RARE
Infection during pregnancy can cause microcephaly & congential malformations.
Neurological complications like Guillain-Barré syndrome, neuropathy and myelitis are seen in some.

1/🧵Wake-Up to how #SLEEP flushes waste from your brain 🧠 @JAMA_current
 
I may get more done when I 💤 less, but I lose the long-game! #Evolution dictated that we gain an advantage by spending 1/3rd of our lives asleep.

I’ll tell you WHY? bit.ly/3qPgzAA

#MedTwitter
2/ Why do we sleep? Brain rest? To process bad decisions or incomplete conversations? Maybe. But the coolest reason is removal of #amyloid & #tau proteins that cause #dementia. Our #glymphatic system does this most efficiently during deep sleep.
 
3/ Have I mentioned that I’m fascinated by the glymphatic system? It’s the lymph system for our #brain & serves as the “garbage” removal program to keep our #neurons healthy. Wanna know more?

27/x 24:e juni lanseras Joe Exotic slot via Red Tiger, vilket så klart anspelar på ”Tiger king” himself och man försöker rida på vågen av Netflix populära miniserie.

1/x TRÅD 1. En summering om vad som hänt i #Evolution sedan rapporten 27/4 (+ lite mer). Vissa saker kanske Hästen missat, men det får ni isåfall leva med. Det blir två trådar för man får bara ha 25 subtweets. #EVO
2/x Innan rapport kom förvärv av BTG, som ingen missat, som fullföljdes 30/6. 13 april ingick även Ezugi en deal med Blox för att stärka positionen i Italien.

1/ Has the #Metaverse "Devolved"?
Me in the @SecondLife #Metaverse in 2013 vs me in the @cryptovoxels Metaverse in 2021. People sometimes ask me why the 2013 Metaverses "look better". I have an answer for these people and it's gonna take several tweets, bear with me... ImageImage
2/ A bit of history: #Metaverses were created whole-cloth from the novel Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson. Active Worlds, which I actually tried (yes, I am that old) was fully based on that book's Metaverse, and provided the basis of all other Metaverses including @cryptovoxels...
3/ When it started, #Metaverses were totally separate and different from the concept of #onlinegames. The idea is to have more #socialimmersion and #userinteraction, not to have in-world goals to push the user in a direction...

HILO sobre POR QUÉ LA EVOLUCIÓN ES REAL:

Llevaba un tiempo queriendo hacer un hilillo, y qué mejor que mostrando pruebas y argumentos para que podáis rebatir a los testigos de Jehová que llaman a vuestra puerta.

Let's gooo!
La evolución parece obvia ahora, pero sin embargo, hace un tiempo esto no era tan fácil de ver.
Para ver esta evolución, necesitábamos ver a las #especies cambiar con nuestros propios ojos, y eso era tremendamente difícil.
Para nuestra percepción, las especies son estáticas y no cambian con el tiempo, o al menos eso nos parece...😬 Los únicos organismos que podemos ver realmente "evolucionar" en vida son microscópicos, y lo que realmente cambia no es su aspecto (que también), si no su #ADN.
