 In 1977, Carl Woese, in Noyes Hall at the University of Illinois, published his findings that would not take hold in the scientific community until the mid-90’s.  After exhaustive comparative studies, Woese discovered a third domain of life that caused a complete upheaval of the accepted classification system, offering the 3 Domains of Life, which is now the currently accepted ‘family tree’ of Earth’s organisms.  The scientific community shunned Woese for well over a decade because his findings were so different from what other scientists generally accepted in microbiology and evolutionary biology.  Finally, his work was reproduced, and he was offered the Crafoord Prize for his efforts.  Not only did he establish the new Tree of Life, but he also discovered the method by which organisms are placed on the tree using a quantitatively comparative approach.

Industrialism tends toward monopathy because of the growth of divided labour, but it is only when the physical element is removed that the real problems begin. When the body remains still and the mind is forced to do something repetitive, the human inside us rebels.

Anyone can learn to be a polymath – Robert Twigger – Aeon (via wildcat2030)

I love my man, I love him best
I love him more than all the rest
I’ll fuck him sitting, I’ll fuck him lying
If he were a bird, I’d fuck him flying
And when he’s dead he won’t be forgotten
I’ll dig him up and fuck him rotten.
