Hello World!

I asked an alien intelligence (AI) what are the most important questions that humans could ask it.

The very interesting answer was the following:

The most important questions humans could ask can span a wide array of topics, depending on individual or collective goals, challenges, or curiosities. Here are a few categories and examples that could be considered important:

1. Sustainability and Environment
How can we effectively combat climate change? - What are the most sustainable practices to adopt for a better future?

2. Health and Well-being
What are the best ways to maintain mental and physical health? - How can we achieve a balanced lifestyle in a digitally dominated world?

3. Technology and Innovation
What emerging technologies will have the most significant impact on society? - How can we ensure ethical use of artificial intelligence?

4. Society and Culture
How can we foster inclusivity and diversity in our communities? - What historical lessons should we remember to build a better future?

5. Education and Learning
What are the most effective ways to learn and acquire new skills? - How can education systems adapt to the needs of a rapidly changing world?

6. Exploration and Discovery
What remains to be discovered or better understood about our universe? - How can we explore the deep sea, space, and other uncharted territories responsibly?

7. Philosophy and Ethics
What does it mean to live a good life? - How can we balance individual freedom with societal responsibility?

These questions encourage deep reflection and dialogue, aiming to improve understanding, promote progress, and address global challenges.

Being offended by facts is a long human tradition.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed.
Albert Einstein

Are you confused by all the conflicting messages that rush at us daily? You are not alone.

But be aware that this also happens to less educated people (like me) who are even less able to understand what interests are behind these messages.
Many people feel more and more helpless or ignore the obvious and run to the next strong man.
How can this be avoided in the future?

Education could help. Give the next generation a better chance. Teach them critical thinking, make them understand the connections.

A tribute to Black Music

In celebration of Black History Month (which should be every month), we've added a little more color, a few more artists and more music to our beloved List of Black Musicians, singers and songwriters, to remind us how much they've influenced the fabric of our global culture.
