Invisible microbes have created some of the largest structures on the planet. Mycorrhizal fungi form extraordinary subterranean networks that associate symbiotically with plant roots. Most land plants, including many human crops, need mycorrhizae for optimal growth, but recent research has shown they also play important roles in forest-wide communication and may even turn some trees into carnivores. More dramatically, microbial communities have created global landmarks ranging from the White Cliffs of Dover to the Great Barrier reef.

CHANGES AROUND US

We see a lot of changes around us - from falling of tree leaves to blossoming of flowers. Human body also undergoes a lot of changes like a child grows into a full grown adult. These are natural changes and they cannot be reversed. For example an adult cannot become a child again.
There are some changes which can be reversed. Take a balloon and blow some air into it. The balloon becomes big. Then let the air escape through the nozzle of the balloon. it gets back to its original shape. Take a paper and fold it to make a paper plane. After sometime unfold the paper plane and the paper gets back to its previous shape. This activity shows that some changes can be reversed.
Instead of the air escaping out of the balloon take a pin and burst it. Now the balloon loses its previous shape. Instead of folding the paper plane, cut it into desired shapes. The structured changes in the shape of the paper cannot be reversed.
Consider some more examples:
When you crack an egg to open, the egg and the egg white cannot be converted into an egg again. You can convert grains into flour but you cannot convert flour into grains. Thus some changes are reversible while some are irreversible changes.

Will America’s disregard for science be the end of its reign?
Watch the newest video from Big Think: https://bigth.ink/NewVideo
Learn skills from the world's top minds at Big Think Edge: https://bigth.ink/Edge
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From America's inception, there has always been a rebellious, anti-establishment mentality. That way of thinking has become more reckless now that the entire world is interconnected and there are added layers of verification (or repudiation) of facts.

As the great minds in this video can attest, there are systems and mechanisms in place to discern between opinion and truth. By making conscious efforts to undermine and ignore those systems at every turn (climate change, conspiracy theories, coronavirus, politics, etc.), America has compromised its position of power and effectively stunted its own growth.

A part of the problem, according to writer and radio host Kurt Andersen, is a new media infrastructure that allows for false opinions to persist and spread to others. Is it the beginning of the end of the American empire?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TRANSCRIPT:

KURT ANDERSEN: Americans have always been magical thinkers and passionate believers in the untrue. We were started by the Puritans in New England who wanted to create, and did create, a Christian utopia and theocracy as they waited for the imminent second coming of Christ and the end of days. And in the South by a bunch of people who were convinced, absolutely convinced, that this place they'd never been was full of gold just to be plucked from the dirt in Virginia. And they stayed there looking and hoping for gold for 20 years before they finally, finally faced the facts and the evidence and decided that they weren't going to get rich overnight there.

So that was the beginning. And then we've had centuries of 'buyer beware' charlatanism to an extreme degree and medical quackery to an extreme degree, and increasingly exotic, extravagant, implausible religions over and over again from Mormonism, to Christian science, to Scientology in the last century. And we've had this anti-establishment, "I'm not going to trust the experts. I'm not going to trust the elite," in our character from the beginning. Now, all those things came together and were supercharged in the 1960s when you were entitled to your own truth and your own reality. Then, a generation later when the internet came along, giving each of those realities, no matter how false or magical or nutty they are, their own kind of media infrastructure.

We had entertainment, again, for our whole last couple 100 years, but especially in the last 50 years, permeating all the rest of life, including presidential politics, from John F. Kennedy through Ronald Reagan to Bill Clinton. So, the thing was set up for Donald Trump to exploit all these various American threads and astonishingly become president. But then you look at this history and it's like, "Oh, we should've seen this coming."

TYSON: The power of journalism: A mistake becomes truth. The print journalism is taking what I said and turning it into an article, so it has to pass through the journalist, get processed, and then it becomes some written content on a page. One hundred percent of those experiences, the journalist got something fundamentally wrong with the subject matter. And just as an interesting point about the power of journalists, I had people read the article and say, "Neil, you must know better than that. That's not how this works." They assumed the journalist was correct about reporting what I said, not that I was correct and that the journalists was wrong. This is an interesting power that journalists have over whether you think what they're writing is true or not. That was decades ago. In recent years, what I think has happened is that they're more journalists who are science fluent that are writing about science than was the case 20 years ago. So now I don't have to worry about the journalist missing something fundamental about what I'm trying...

⁣Robot home appliances like automatic vacuum cleaners need to build up a map of where they live in order to move.

Typically LiDAR spatial technology, which has a spinning laser to determine distance, is used – but it has it’s shortcomings too, like high-performance ability and cost.

New software, developed by Slamcore, is being used so robots use visual imaging, rather than LiDAR, to make up a map of their surroundings.

Slamcore CEO Owen Nicholson said the next level of spatial intelligence is knowing how the world around you is shaped “from a geometry point of view”.

This film is from Click – the BBC’s weekly technology show.

Is there an external reality? Is reality objective? Is the information your senses are feeding you an accurate depiction of reality? Most neuroscientists, biologists, and scientific leaders believe that we only understand a sliver of what is real.

Although we assume our senses are telling us the truth, they’re actually fabricated to us. Considering senses are unique from person to person, and through our unique senses we can only intemperate a fraction of what is real, there is no all-encompassing perspective one can have. Because of this, we need to take our perceptions seriously, but not literally.

Multiple perspectives have to be taken, as each will have some sort of truth lies within them. Seeing partial truth in multiple perspectives is fundamental to navigating the world and making informed decisions.

Join scientists as they grab light from across the universe to prove quantum entanglement is real.

#NOVAPBS Official Website: https://to.pbs.org/3vqiMpg

Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance,” but today quantum entanglement is poised to revolutionize technology from computers to cryptography. Physicists have gradually become convinced that the phenomenon—two subatomic particles that mirror changes in each other instantaneously over any distance—is real. But a few doubts remain. NOVA follows a ground-breaking experiment in the Canary Islands to use quasars at opposite ends of the universe to once and for all settle remaining questions.

(Premiered January 9, 2019)

Chapters:
00:00 Introduction
03:52 Is Quantum Entanglement Real?: Canary Islands Experiment
08:10 The Beginnings of Quantum Mechanics
15:26 Quantum Mechanics Explained by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen
22:39 Developments from Discovery of Quantum Theory
27:11 The First Quantum Entanglement Experiment
32:04 Quantum Computers Solving Real-World Problems
