    In my life, I don't remember such a worldwide unrest. Previously safe countries are regressing back to violence.

    I don't know why, but I've been fascinated by the Kardashev Scale for twenty years.
    I don't think this is any sort of major transition. By the standards of great civilization movements we will live our lives in a very dull period. Everybody always thinks the period they live in is somehow special (see: the entire history of religion) but almost everybody lives and dies in periods of inertia. The last significantly transformative event in human history was the replacement of agriculture by manufacturing, which has been going on for upwards of 600 years. We have no idea what the next one will be since by definition we cannot imagine it. But they only happen about once every thousand years, so we're likely only at about the midpoint of the current era -- an uninteresting time.

    The only thing I can see throwing a curveball into it is First Contact, and black swans don't count.

    I would say it's probably the continued replacement of grunt labor with more automation. Eventually, perhaps the development of true AI (actual, sentient machines and not just computers that can learn patterns).

    All of a piece.

    First slaves, then animals, then machines. The freeing of humans from the drudgery of work is The Only Change. The movement of man from the limitation of nature to limitations imposed only by himself.

    Another is the extension of thinking, which has been going on in parallel. First solitary heads, then language and direct contact, then writing and indirect contact, then computers and the abstraction of thinking to the non-human (which has also been going on in mathematics and philosophy for 8000 years). The replacement of superstition and religion with knowledge and science.

    And of course the replacement of the strong and stupid by the clever and smart. The liquidation of the jocks and the triumph of the nerds. The end of the animal right and the beginning of the human left. In a word: civilization. The next evolution: habilis --> erectus --> Heidelbergensis --> sapiens ---> stellas.

    Yeah, I'm glad I did. Because it seems like the comments on the paper show this was an insane paper and probably shouldn't have been released in the state it was in. Language was very unclear and the methods used were bad. From what little I understand, it would be like picking up a Dickens novel and a Twain novel and finding a couple words in sequence that match in both books, three separate times and concluding it was plagiarism. Turns out, that's really common. Duh. Subsequent evaluations by other scientists in the field basically are calling this double non-plus bad.

    But now, this misinformation is going to spread like wildfire across Twitter.

    I still wouldn't put it past the CCP to have manufactured this thing whilst tinkering around in the local bioweapons research lab, but it's a good rule of thumb not to cite questionably-sourced Tweets from unverified accounts as scientific revelations.

    It's not a questionably-sourced tweet, I wouldn't say. THe original post I had was from an epidemiologist at Harvard's school of public health (15 years and counting) and graduated from Harvard & Johns Hopkins. I figured he might know what he's talking about.

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Holy sh--.

    Supergiant star Betelgeuse has been getting dimmer at an unprecedented pace over the past few months, leading some astronomers to wonder if it might be in the process of the collapse that precedes a supernova explosion. But there are other possible explanations, and we should have a better idea of what's happening to the massive star by the end of the month.

    Veteran Villanova University astronomer Edward Guinan has been watching Betelgeuse for decades and reported earlier this month that the star appears to be "the least luminous and coolest yet measured from our 25 years of photometry."

    It's well known Betelgeuse has no more than about 100,000 years left to burn and could start its death throes just about anytime between now and then. When it does go supernova, it's expected to result in a dramatic light show that could be visible in daylight and appear brighter than the full moon for a few weeks. The last time humans were treated to such a sight was the 17th century.
