The Hidden Reality Part 3 of 12

The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos

Chapter 2: This chapter explains the basics of Einstein's theory of relativity, and uses his model of the universe to explain why there may be parallel worlds. For those unfamiliar with the theory of relativity, it was proposed by Einstein to explain the pull of gravity.

Another music review? This one will be a bit shorter and more to the point.

The Hidden Reality Part 1 of 12

Today I started reading Brian Greene's The Hidden Reality, a book about physics written so as to have a much broader appeal than, say, a textbook on the subject. I have decided to share my thoughts and a few points of what I have learned from the book every time I finish a chapter. There are 11 chapters and as this is an introduction, this will be a 12 part piece, all of which will be tagged "hidden reality".

Less Ranting More BASS

I've decided to review some of the Independent musicians of which I am a fan. Today I am going to review rapper Craig Smith's newest release titled The Mace Windu Project (available for free at )

For those not aware, Mace Windu is the name of Samuel L. Jackson's character in the newer (read:worse)  Star Wars trilogy. I first heard of Craig Smith when he was featured on Tech N9ne's Collabos: Sickology 101 on the song In The Air. I found his simple but intelligent sounding rap technique pretty interesting so I looked him up and have been following him on Twitter for over a year and downloading all of his music. I would definitely consider myself a fan.

Rant About People

  This is going to be an extremely cynical post, that's what happens when you decide to make a blog at 4am. I'm beginning to lose all hope for humankind. I blame a few different things, the most prevalent of which in all our lives is big media.

Rant on Ignorance (expanded)

New thoughts:
Slippery Slope arguments (if we let gay people marry pretty soon someone will marry a goat etc.)
-The ignorant people who use this sort of logic need to realize that slippery slopes go both ways. (Zach Weiner points this out in a wonderfully hilarious way in this comic: )

Welcome to my Blog

This is where you'll find a number of my ramblings. Some of it will be re-posts of Facebook blog content, some will be rants, and when I actually write some stuff I feel is worth sharing, my short stories and other prose will be posted. Feel free to leave constructive feedback!
