Below our feet in the old growth forests, a vast Internet composed of roots and mycelial fibers connects a community of life forms that regulate and sustain life. Much like electromagnetic waves a few hundred years ago, we’ve just discovered this aspect of nature. The implications for biology and computer science are intriguing.
Beowolf was written at a crossroads between ages. The characters in the poem straddle both pagan and christian values and struggle with their inconsistencies. It was a product of ages of dynamic oral storytelling translated into a medium that while more permanent, ceased to be as meaningful to later generations. Verbal lore could be adapted […]
