Welcome to a Scintilla of Playful Musings

Welcome to my new blog, noos anakainisis, translated literally as mind renewal. The primary obsessions are neuroscience, computation, information, structure, form, art and history of science. Some environmental, political, and technological developments will also be included.

I hope your neurons are sufficiently stimulated...

Radiolaria are beautiful

Report on the Scientific Results of the Voyage of H.M.S. Challenger during the years 1873-1876, Zoology, Volume XVIII
by Ernst Haeckel, M.D., Ph. D., Professor of Zoology in the University of Jena.

Check out all the plate illustrations (and Haeckels other work), these paintings are all gorgeous and should be used in more art projects. There is also a beautiful documentary about the man and his passionate forging of art and science called Proteus.
