“To entertain such ontologies is to re-contextualize one’s self as a marvelous conduit in a timeless whole, through which molecules and meaning flow, from nebulae to neurons and back again.” - Tim Doody Learn More: The Ecstasy of Incomplete Information “Knowing provides closure, but the mystery of not knowing inspires curiosity, wonder and a shared quest for answers.” http://arthurcoddington.com/the-ecstasy-of-incomplete-information-why-knowing-everything-instantly-is-not-the-best-thing-ever/ The Ravenous Brain by Daniel Bor “Consciousness is our gateway to experience: It enables us to recognize Van Gogh’s starry skies, be enraptured by Beethoven’s Fifth, and stand in awe of a snowcapped mountain. Yet consciousness is subjective, personal, and famously difficult to examine.” http://www.danielbor.com/the-ravenous-brain/ Golden Eye by Ross Andersen “It blasts open new tunnels between the mind and The Other, tunnels not easily sealed by the censorious henchmen of fading paradigms.” http://lareviewofbooks.org/essay/golden-eye Special thanks to Christoph Rehage!

How do you make a mummy, and why did we make mummies in the first place? Read More: Mummy unwrapping brought Egyptology to the public http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/10/121029154253.htm “Public ‘unwrappings’ of real mummified human remains performed by both showmen and scientists heightened the fascination, but also helped develop the growing science of Egyptology, says a historian.” Ancient Egyptian Mummification Practices Revisited by New Study http://www.history.com/news/ancient-egyptian-mummification-practices-revisited-by-new-study “Brain removal, heart preservation and liquefying organs with cedar oil? These trends in mummification weren’t as prevalent among Egyptian embalmers as previously thought, a new study suggests.” Saving Chilean mummies from climate change http://www.seas.harvard.edu/news/2015/03/saving-chilean-mummies-from-climate-change “At least two thousand years before the ancient Egyptians began mummifying their pharaohs, a hunter-gatherer people called the Chinchorro living along the coast of modern-day Chile and Peru developed elaborate methods to mummify not just elites but all types of community members—men, women, children, and even unborn fetuses.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!
