Sunspots 60

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

How to observe the sun for yourself.

Honda has created a robot that can act in response to the brain activity of a person, whose brain is read by an MRI. It's not ready for prime time yet.

Are RFID chips, implanted in humans, the mark of the Beast?

Article on MSNBC (therefore more or less for the general public) on extra dimensions, and possible proof that they exist. (Also shows that physicists aren't just old Caucasian males in white lab coats -- see the photos of the scientists interviewed.)

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here)

When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of them are great.

I'm not sure if RFID by itself constitutes the Mark of the Beast. If I'm reasoning it properly, the "mark" will be a visible sign of allegiance to the Beast, placed on the hand or forehead.

While the "mark" might get you into the grocery store, or maybe the general public, the RFID might make up the part necessary for the act of buying and selling. The market seems to be pushing RFID for financial and retail transactions (see: mastercard), so that's not much of a stretch.

The technology has many useful possibilities, but human implants are a little unsettling to my peace of mind.
