“A large school of mobula rays fades into the waters of Baja, Mexico. “The rays were moving quite fast and it was hard enough keeping up with them from the surface, let alone diving down to take a closer look,” writes photographer Eduardo Lopez Negrete. Mobula rays are often referred to as flying rays due to their fondness for breaching.” — the 2014 National Geographic Traveller Photo ContestLet’s also keep in mind that a mobula ray can reach 17 foot (5.2 meter) wingspan and weigh over a ton. Freaky or cool?

Finding the right theory of truth is really an optimization problem. It just depends on what you want to hold onto.

Some of you were not being so charitable to Nietzsche in your papers, which is sort of understandable though since Nietzsche isn’t so charitable to anyone else.

When you fire particles over different trajectories at the same initial speed and record their highest points, the curve joining these points appears to be an ellipse. This article on arXiv presents the calculations behind this ballistic curiosity.

Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past

Steve Maraboli (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

I don’t think I’ve met anyone who isn’t properly defined by their past in one way or another.  There are some incredible things to be learned from past mistakes, so I don’t understand why anyone would want to forgo that opportunity for the sake of having a “clean slate” in life.  A person who isn’t ‘defined by their past’ would be awfully dull in my book.

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
