Does God Play Dice?

Does God Play Dice? A metaphysical attempt to answer. The universe and its every forming being, the insignificant, the indispensable and the ones in between, are governed by a law. A law that is characterized by everything earthly unlawful: inconsistent, uncertain, erratic, disarray and anything a fickling human mind can think of disorderliness. All these randomness got together to form an unifying force that decides the laws governing the universe and the fate of the earthlings. This inexplicable unified law became, in the hearts of the people who cannot perceive the imperceptible, God. The extremely chaotic nature of this unified law or God has been perplexing the logical minds until today. Is it everything about randomness? Is there no coherent intention behind all this creation? To our...

Ice Age: Will There Be One?

Global warming has made nations across the globe adopt measures to fight carbon emissions and bring under control the rise in temperature of the earth’s surface. Would you be surprised to know something that is quite the contrary- that we are in the middle of an Ice age? You would be; but it is quite possibly true that the Earth, as we see it today, is in the middle of an Ice age for nearly the last 11,500 years. [Body1AdHere] Ice age or glacial period by definition is duration of time in which the earth’s surface is covered by ice sheets mostly. Between these glacial periods are interglacial periods during which the temperature of the earth’s surface remain at a level of what is today in our everyday life. Thus, our planet is in an interglacial period for nearly 11,500 years before which ...

The Great Depression, the Greed and Ethics of Banking

Banks that are huge financial structures with complex operations and transactions today had existed since the origin of civilization but in a simpler manner in which temples and royal kingdoms accepted deposits of grains, crops, livestock and other valuables and redistributed them. Ancient banking also involved lending and interest charges that used clay tablets as receipts for these transfers. [Body1AdHere] As trade flourished across the continents, metallic monetary system came into existence. Eventually, what began as a simple practice of exchanging resources to satisfy the needs for survival has grown multitudes and has become extremely complex structures and phenomena that some consider as robbing lives in the modern day. Banking structures have become breeding grounds for human greed...

Chaos Theory: The Science of Predictions

We have been successful in predicting the angle at which earth revolves around the sun. It is tilted 23 ½ ° and thus our scientists were obliged to crack an answer for the question why is it tilted. There is a direct causal relationship between the earth’s angle of inclination and our quest to find an answer why is it so. All our pursuit for the answers is a result of so many events happening in the past and merely because they exist right in front of our experience. Thus our collective reasoning is trying to probe and figure out why it all had happened. The events that push us forward every day to find out the truth are not linear and simple. They are complex, infinitely minuscular and chaotic. By being so, they accomplished their mission to make us think and keep us moving forward in sea...

Tamu Massif, The Largest Volcano on Earth

Scientists have started to get into the details of what is known to be one of the most mysterious and the largest of all volcanoes on earth- Tamu Massif that lies deep inside the Pacific Ocean on the Shatsky oceanic plateau, 1600 kilometers to the south-east of Japan. [Body1AdHere] It was believed that it was not just a single volcano but a combination of three separate volcanoes that makes it so huge. But it has been discovered that it is one single volcano that is 50 times bigger than Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii, the previously known largest volcano. Having spent 36 days on board R/V Falkor, an oceanographic research vessel in the Pacific, a team of scientists, led by geologist William Sager from University of Houston, has come up with the data to construct a 3D map of the entire volcano...

Are Human Beings Responsible for the Sixth Mass Extinction on Earth?

The world we see now had nourished many other millions of species before giving place to us, the humanity. It had never been the same before, as this place has witnessed the growth and demise of a large number of species. Putting aside the question if this planet would be our permanent abode for the infinite future, the lives of many other species have become a question mainly due to the way we have started living our lives. [Body1AdHere] The Earth is 4.532 billion years old, and our scientists have an idea about the number of stars in our sky. But when it comes to the number of species available on Earth, they have certainly no idea as there could be millions of species out there that are yet to be identified. On a average, 15000 species are discovered by scientists every year. Hence, the...

Banking, Money Laundering & Extremism

Banking is a simple process in which money from depositors are collected and are loaned out to the ones who need money to start a business, to build a house or to fund their child’s education and for so many other reasons. When such a simple process happens in a large scale (indeed a very large scale), the whole process becomes very much complicated that unravelling its knots could be a daunting task to understand the nitty-gritties. But one thing is for sure. The basic element in which the whole process of banking hinges on is trust. People trust the banking authorities and the government that regulates the banking industry with their money and the fairness of transactions involved, to make the banking system work seamlessly, which is very much essential for the world economy to be stable...

Net Neutrality, Internet.org & Digital India – How Are They Connected?

When Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook updated his profile picture with a tricolored tint accompanied by a statement ‘I support Digital India’, the online India devotedly responded by updating their profile pictures in a similar fashion. A few of them found it smelling fishy as they found the code Internet.org in the high-level language, which is meant to be understood by computer machines. [Body1AdHere] Now, as they thought they have successfully unraveled the plot of a conspiracy knot, they started sophisticatedly saying others, ’Hey! You know what you just did? You voted against Net Neutrality’. Even a few leading media publishers made stories with the same theme as they are hungry for news that sells well no matter how idiotic it sounds. Thus, there are these three entities in the w...

Two Unsolved Mysteries Answered by Science

Mysteries are considered awesome as they intrigue people and catch their attention as there is an inexplicable fact involved in every mystery that cannot be readily perceived by our understanding. But not all of them remain mystifying forever. Science has shed a lot of light in the recent years and has made many of these mysteries comprehensible, but not without much painstaking efforts. Here are two such unsolved mysteries that have made people wonder about how on earth are they possible. I. The Tunguska Event On the 30th of June 1908 at 7.14 am, there was a huge explosion caused by a fireball flying over the skies of Eastern Siberian Taiga that felled nearly 80 million trees in the forest area of 2000 square kilometres. No persons were harmed during the event. The tremors of the explosio...

Martin Shkreli & the Pharmaceutical Horrors

The legitimacy and responsibility of the global pharmaceutical industry came under question when Martin Shkreli, CEO and Founder of Turing Pharmaceuticals AG decided last month to raise the price of a drug Daraprim, used to treat HIV by 5455 percent from $13.5 to $750, per tablet. The reason for the ultra-exorbitant price hike he offered was- ‘altruistic’ in his own words- that the drug manufacturing is not profitable at the current price and the profit gained through this hike could be used for further research on more lethal diseases. Meanwhile, it is estimated that it takes $1 to make a tablet Daraprim. The license to manufacture pyrimethamine to treat AIDS, some kinds of cancers and malaria under the brand Daraprim has long ceased to exist since 1953. Shkreli obtained the manufacturing...

Homo naledi – Our New Mysterious Ancestor

On 10th September 2015, palaeontologists discovered fossil remains of some ancient form of human lives Homo naledi at the Rising Star Cave in Cradle of Human System site, South Africa. The discovery has the potential to shed some fresh light on our understanding of human evolution, as the unearthing has brought some striking details about the behaviour of Homo naledi, which is so far considered unique to our human race. When our scientists had believed that burying the dead is a behaviour unique to the human species, Homo sapiens, and not any other related live forms, the fossil remains found came as a big surprise as they have been confirmed to be the remnants of the buried dead of naledi species. Scientists have always believed that we as human life forms evolved from our primitive ances...

Elizabeth II: The Oldest Ruling Monarch Alive

Queen Elizabeth II- the oldest ruling monarch of the world alive- became the longest reigning monarch of the United Kingdom on September 9, 2015, surpassing her great-grandmother Queen Victoria. In a period where democracy and its values are being heralded as the principal realm of governance, it is indeed quite a moment for Queen Elizabeth II to reign over the United Kingdom for over six decades beginning from 1953, along with being the head of the state for 16 other nations. Her legacy as it proclaims to have brought stability to Great Britain also has other flip sides. Monarchy, as it gives individualism an upper hand in the administrative affairs of a state, is being opposed by many across the world and every fourth person in the United Kingdom demands a republic nation. A person being...
