Editorial Reviews

Six articles grace this special edition of Scientific American; half of which explain the language of the body, touching on insights offered by our gestures. Other articles delve into new advances in the early detection of autism and ways people can recover lost senses of smell. These narrated nuggets of science appeal to a wide audience. They are based in research, but chockfull of human stories. Plus, the talented performer makes these articles approachable. In particular, he proves his ease with technical language as he employs a conversational tone. These audio issues of Scientific American are perfect on-the-go education for busy-but-curious listeners.

    So who is really in charge of the "Real World" ??

    Science tells that what we preceive is not the whole truth that after we remember an event or maybe a thing that over time even that is subject change ...that space is an anorixic missing 99.999% or not enough mass/density to account for the what we think it should be like well than... So who is really in charge of the "Real World" ?? Or is it just about nothing out there.... OK the electromagnetic force....without which any IT would not exist! So is it a strech to think there is a Clock maker or joker who just through in inflation, just so unless we figure out how to bend the universe's Gods rules
    he made it impossible to find our neighbores
    find an another world.......or like the popular stories of the future suggest a negitive that we are unworthy because we have devided our house. Dispoiled our felloe man...again we play the OTHER not Brother game...But I think we need to change the narative to make a better world. We need to go out there to go forth and multiply so the Good Book said....ok
