Bioelectric + Acoustic: Signaling Pathways To Regenerate Limbs & More

Bioelectrical and sonic methods for healing are the future now. And the Chinese meridian system that describes bio-electricity deserves current —pun intended — attention and further development in conjunction with sound or frequency therapies, alongside engineering and chemistry. The above image comes from an amazing project of converting genetic and protein sequences into music calledContinue reading “Bioelectric + Acoustic: Signaling Pathways To Regenerate Limbs & More”

Bio + Philosophy: Human Physiology Is Technology & Voluntary Evolution

The new modern idea of voluntary evolution is available by making deliberate choices. Yet for all my enthusiasm about this new frontier, one area I’m at odds with is the literal fusion of electronics with the human body. I mean, we’re already fusing with our daily interaction and tech habits — Think on the molecularContinue reading “Bio + Philosophy: Human Physiology Is Technology & Voluntary Evolution”

Eco + Tech: Flash Biodegradability Pt. 1 — Concept Adaptation & Development

The concept of Flash Biodegradability is directly inspired by the above achievement of James Tour and team at Rice University, making “flash graphene” out of trash, a carbon byproduct. Flash Biodegradability would ideally leave no tangible byproduct, such as trace elements or light — or create a useful byproduct such as water. Its successful realizationContinue reading “Eco + Tech: Flash Biodegradability Pt. 1 — Concept Adaptation & Development”

RE-POST: Achieving higher performance with potassium ion battery by Tsinghua University Press

https://phys.org/news/2022-04-higher-potassium-ion-battery.amp Remember the banana art ? Hearing a lot about lithium still, but what about the potassium ion battery?— research by Tsinghua University, among others like Korea University “…life on the planet is somehow based on biological potassium-ion batteries. K+ is the key charge carrier in plants. Circulation of K+ ions facilitates the energy storageContinue reading “RE-POST: Achieving higher performance with potassium ion battery by Tsinghua University Press”

Adulting 202: The Most Important Quality In A Mentor

The most important quality in a mentor, leader or coach is supportive belief. That person is able to tell you that whatever it is you seek to do, you can do it. An even better coach guides as to how. They won’t waste time telling you why you can’t do something. The former is maturityContinue reading “Adulting 202: The Most Important Quality In A Mentor”

Tech + Materials: The Buzz On Graphene

Graphene is inorganic/human-assembled crystalline carbon, laid out flat in 2D sheet, with a hexagonal lattice configuration. This is copying nature: Bees use hexagonal packing for their honeycombs to maximize space. Carbon has many forms and uses since it’s one fundamental constituent of our material reality. Like other elements, it’s a type of atom, with aContinue reading “Tech + Materials: The Buzz On Graphene”
