What about some science usability as something else for news? We don’t need to tell you everything on social media is pretty grim right now – it’s nigh on impossible to avoid articles about wars, Antartica melting, etc. But despite all the doom and gloom, in reality there are a whole bunch of incredible people doing […]

A talk given by Laurence Newey, Lucis Trust, at an open meeting entitled: Esoteric Perspectives on a Science of Consciousness.

Ask any biologist and he’ll tell you lichens are an intriguing bunch. They exist only because of a symbiotic relationship between algae (or cyanobacteria) and fungi. The fungus creates a network that sustains, hydrates and protects the alga, which in turn provides sugars through photosynthesis. So, while they exhibit plant-like characteristics, they are not plants. […]
