RE: The elegant nature of science
I posted this somewhere else, but it's cool science.

I thought this was interesting.
Edgar Bronfman Jr. (Canadian liquor heir) has a company that extracts CO-2 from the atmosphere, as an alternative carbon source. The carbon they retrieve can be used for many of the common uses carbon is used, industrially, for.

Why is it the Europeans and others are in this, and not the US ?
First the collider in Texas was scrapped, and they built CERN in Europe.

Because they still teach science in Europe?

And now - the emoji nature of science (because I don't want to think about terrorism and I can't work...)

Also, this doesn't technically rhyme (not all of the words anyhow) and my obsessive-compulsive, linguist's brain ain't happy Dodgy

So, no bloody chance of *any* free will (or emotion Rolleyes ), eh, Bucky, dear?

Was interesting.

"So, emotions aren't happening to you. Your brain makes them as you need them." - the one situation where I literally catch myself doing this, almost every time, is when something is about to end (I have a problem with endings. I either hurry them up or avoid them entirely, when possible) I start subconsciously preparing myself ... in all sorts of not so good ways (sometimes). In the case of saying goodbye to people for good, my brain might start looking for faults or reasons not to like those people so much, and other such crappy things. I guess people maybe do this after they've been dumped (or when they feel it coming)... *Not* the best coping mechanism, let me tell you Dodgy

Our emotional brain works faster than our intellect, but intellectual reframing often moderates or changes our initial emotional reactions. In other words, we experience more subtle emotions with our intellect engaged.
