A Utopian Life - Is It Possible? Experiment vs. Reality

"Well let me start out. By saying that dystopia n- fiction is kind of like science fiction. It's that are happening. That really could maybe perhaps happen. Like a world war or some kind of something that is apocalyptic and so that kind of thing can happen perhaps okay but utopian fiction is the exact opposite and it is something of a perfect world that we want to be in from the merriam webster dictionary we find this definition proposing or advocating ideal social and political schemes and one who believes in the perfection of human society. Well utopias work in two ways walking away from the extreme happiness of a utopia to perhaps find something better. Whatever that is or to walk away from an apocalyptic dystopia in life for the happiness and hope of a utopian life that is better but what is the utopian life. I am careful to note that. It is known that karl marx and frederick engels have studied a utopian way of life to some extent in the form of communism but first let's begin by finding out about what a utopia really is. Well you really is. Happiness and hope perhaps built on someone else's misery or knowing happiness by seeing or imagining the opposite. Well that sounds okay right. A lot of utopian concepts include simplifying. Human life sounds okay to being more in touch with religion or nature. Yep that sounds okay. Social improvement again sounds okay a visionary dreamlike ideal of political and social systems. That sounds okay to well. Utopia is often defined as a place of ideal perfection especially in law's government and social conditions a utopia described as an imaginary remote place. That's right and perhaps it has an impossible ideal of being visionary from the website classical wisdom dot com. I find this ever since there were people and places there has been desire for other different people and ideal perfect places. And what is this website talking about. They're talking about utopia such an important word and it means so much and our society today a word that has its origins and ancient greece which has a translation meeting of no place. Everything is a place but not utopia. Utopia is an imagined place of perfection. Don't forget that it's something that we strive for. Dust being there is no place such as this while writer sir thomas more was a philosophical genius and knew that he must be open to the idea of there being a better place or at least proving that there is no utopia no good place. In other words you see the word. Utopia is greek and was developed and fifteen sixteen. So when coming up with this concept of no place sir. Thomas more was having fun and poking a little fun and playing where the definition of a good place or no place meaning. No place is really perfect. The earliest generic use of utopia was for an imaginary and indefinitely. Remote place like an island kind of the current use of utopia referring to an ideal place or society was inspired by tyler. Moore's description the dreaming of a better world is almost as old as the world itself. We all have that dream even today as humans. We always desire better. Don't we i know i do. Let's look at what some of these concepts of utopia really are well and utopia. There is nothing private anywhere. The doors and the people's houses are open to anyone who wants to enter them the utopians either meals and public and where they all eat is in common place. It is a capital offense to engage in private discussions about public affairs and the business of politics can only be done and public

"Horowitz grew up in Colorado and always loved dogs, but it took her a long time before realizing she could study them for a living As an undergrad. She was a philosophy major at Penn, She moved to New York and worked as a lexicographer for the Merriam Webster Dictionary and then as a fact checker for The New Yorker. And there she worked on some pieces by Oliver Sacks, the freewheeling neurologist best known for writing awakenings and the man who mistook his wife for a hat. And I just adored his combination of this empathetic science and sort of philosophical musings. At this point, she thought she might like to become that kind of writer. You went back to school and wound up with a PhD in cognitive science from the University of California, San Diego. It's basically a PhD that's interdisciplinary. So philosophers are asking. What is the mind? Neuroscientists are interested in examining the brain. Psychologists wanna look at behavior so Those fields plus computer science with their interest in artificial intelligence in anthropology, all kind of converge in this one interdisciplinary field, which wants to use different Methods and approaches, Tio tackled the questions of mind. And when you set out to get a PhD in cognitive science, did you imagine that you would specialize in the cognitive science of not humans, but dogs? I was actually surprised to me, but I was very interesting How you get answers about what Animals who can't give verbal responses are thinking. And dogs wound up being a good model for looking at behavior and making inferences to mind. So it happened that way. But it hadn't happened that way. Two people before there wasn't a Cognitive science of Doc's. Here again is Alexandra Harwood's reading from inside of a dog. Perplexes me that some of the questions I have most often been asked about dogs and that I have about my own dog are not addressed by research. On matters of personality, personal experience, emotions and simply what they think about. Science is quiet. Still, the accumulation of data about dogs provides a good foothold from which to extrapolate and reach toward answers to those questions. The questions are typically of two kinds..

"Cities. Remember back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, one, the mayor of Belmez in. Marinas faces were either saints or spirits even encouraged Maria to encase leposava in glass? One can only imagine that a mayor in a more skeptical society may not have taken Maria claims so seriously. What's more many studies have shown that people who have been traumatized are more likely to believe in supernatural phenomena and remember in nineteen seventy one the people of Belmez had somewhat recently faced the horrors of the Spanish civil war plenty of its populace had lived through the conflict. It's also possible that some people in Belmez simply needed something to believe in. At that time Franko controlled every aspect of people's lives. But even the general himself couldn't put a stop to the talk about the faces. Believing in them could have been an act of simple rebellion. As far as seeing the faces in the first place, this could be explained by a different phenomenon known as Paradise. Leah. The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines the Word Peradeniya as the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern. Some well known examples include seeing a man on the moon faces on Mars and various shapes and clouds. The faces Marinas House are distinctly recognizable as human to some people but to different people or at different angles, they don't really look like faces at all. You might have to be told to look for them in order to see them in the first place. Still a vast number of people did believe they looked like faces. So Paradise Leah or not the hype surrounding the film is faces is still an incredible phenomenon. As for who perpetuated it maybe all that will come to light once Maria San Diego passes away. Or maybe he'll leave the task to one of his own children continuing the strange legend. Either way at least one spirit lives on. Maria, Gomez camera whether or not?

"Today superstitions, Merriam Webster. Dictionary defines superstition as a belief or practice resulting from ignorance fear of the unknown trust in matchy or a false conception of causation. That said many people from around the world have a belief that a particular action or event will bring on bad luck and in some cases, even death the superstition about walking or not walking under a ladder has its early roots in religion.

"On Twitter at Dr Dalia in on Facebook, the doctor w show. So a man has been hospitalized after sniffing his own socks. A thirty seven year old father in Jhang Zhao southeast China, which I believe is the same city where we have those issues with those pharmaceutical companies the recall of our blood pressure medication. Apparently, he began to feel chest pain Thirty-seven-year-old, man. Who's the dad? He showed up at the hospital was admitted to ER and a rate as an you know to look at the coff- he was having. He's having chest pain cough. And I guess he was diagnosed with a fungal infection in the lungs was kept in a hospital for treatment. But doctors don't know why he got this fungal infection. So when medics took an oral history, which you really matters taken a real good history. I teach medical students and discover that the condition was most likely caused by his habit of get this smelling his socks. After he'd be wearing them. What was that movie? Was that porkies where the gym teacher the female gym teacher? We get turned on by guy socks, right? So I guess a fungal infection had developed on his feet transferred to as lungs when he sniffed as socks he breeds in fungal spores. Now, this is very unlikely to happen to you. Usually fungi like this will only grow in somebody who is suppressed. But stinky, socks may have bacteria and fungus so wash your hands and don't be then. So of course, a report to the local newspaper Fuzhen daily. The man told doctors that he became addicted to smelling his socks he had worn during the day. He would take these deep sniffs of his own socks and these fungal spores allowed them to then spread into his lungs. They say the infection could also be attributed to the patients lack of rest at home because he had been looking after his child, and that could have led to a weaker immune system. So he has been kept in the hospital for treatment is expected to make a full recovery again notch or why he became addicted to sniffing his socks. But. Wow. Disgusting. At our report this came from I f l science, but a report in Fox News was very interesting the shock and medical oddities a few thousand eighteen these were a whole bunch of different things that happened this last year that kind of blew minds and so just to recap what happened this year. Remember in two thousand ten there was a teenage boy Sam Ballard who swallowed a garden slug. Right. This was there was a slug that kind of ease its way onto the port. So a friend said, hey, go, eat it. So he did he did it become sick immediately. But then later he had painted lakes. He ended up getting rat lungworm disease that leads to is Santa Phillip MENA. Meningioma latest he'd ever recovered fell into a coma for four hundred twenty days. Excuse me later suffered severe brain injury. And unfortunately, he died last month. Eight years after taking the challenge then a data claims he got paralyzed because of a food poisoning. David Bradley, forty years old is blaming the chicken curry dish for triggering a rare autoimmune disorder that left him pair wise for weeks. He said he felt sick while watching his son play rugby and is now fighting for his life where he has he and break, but he hopes that he's going to be better by Christmas. Then this you always hear these cases where a guy's runny nose is actually leaking brain fluid. Greg Philpott said he thanksgiving for everyone when it's runny nose leaked into the meal. He was prepared. He thought though, these were just allergies, but he had it off and on for five years. Well, it turned out that he had a cerebral fluid leak where he had a crack somewhere that allowed the cerebral spinal fluid to leak out the nose has to be fixed because bacteria could come up and then cause a meningitis though, we have seen this. And they see us f- Florida's sweeter tasting then your normal Boogers. Midnight sun lime juice left a man with zombie skin. They say zombie skin happened to a twenty nine year old Australian man, he was a hiker visiting Greenland this summer, and so the sun was out for twenty four hours per day. And he had been using lime flavor his water, but the juice on his hands in the prolonged exposure to the lungs caused him to blister. So you had to be given to wear gloves. Yeah. A lot of times that these summer barbecues, you know, kids with lemons the things like that. And and and citrus they'll burn terribly around the mouth because they don't wipe off their mouth and throughout the sun, and they have these juice on there. Then a man or a mommy was temporarily blinded by a parasite because she swam with contacts in remember, she got a forty nine year old Stacie people's had a Acanthamoeba Titus. So an amoeba attack the outer layer, I she thinks she was in a local pool was wearing contact lenses while swimming with their kid, Charlie. And now she has to use eyedrops try to kill the infection and undergo a cornea transplant wasn't there. Also, somebody who got a infection from taking shower, then a Florida newlywed discovers a fly living in her skin after honeymooning in valise. Remember that story thirty six year old woman was back home for a couple of months, but you have the small itchy Lee. Lesion that looks like a bite. There was plus coming out of it. And so she kept putting antibiotics on it. But it didn't go away. So a surgeon finally opened it up looked at it. And there was an insect with a tapered shape and rows of spines and hawks so pathologists identified the insect as a human bought fly larvae and determined it had been living in the women's skin. Wow. Then we have that guy that ate squirrel brains and died sixty one year old man experienced a decline in his thinking skills lost touch with reality could walk why because he got crews fell Yaacov disease. That's like what we see in mad cow, right? When beef got affected he had eaten, squirrel brains. Well, unfortunately, when he did that he got Chris fell Yaacov, which is a fatal brain condition, and he's prianti. It's not a bacteria not a virus. You know, basically break down the brain. So, unfortunately, he died then remember there was a guy who was licked by his dog. Remember earlier in the year. So doglovers freaked out by this one because Greg Manta full landed in a hospital losses legs because his dog was licking his feet. He started having fever and pain in his legs. And then he got capita sido fascia bacteria. It's commonly found in the saliva cats dogs, usually we. Never get sick. He's still loves dogs. Don't getting rid of his pets, but your animals like to lick your wounds, then one guy was eating sushi. Got a flesh eating bacteria. He lost his left, and and four are because he developed a fever and excruciating pain in his hand hours after eating the fish. He had a history of type two diabetes, hypertension, and was facing end stage renal disease develop large blisters on his hand spread to the rest of his hand. Now, despite quick treatment, the infection spread up his arm. Unfortunately, he had to his limb. Amputation. Now, we talked about that case where a guy had a seventy seven pound tumor. Remember, I believe he had a lightbulb coma. He had a growing belly. And the belly just didn't look right to me. It doesn't look like fat to me. It looks like a tumor seventy seven pounds.

Their word of the year is Justice. The dictionary publisher revealed its pick today having chosen the term based on the number of times, it was looked on its website. I guess there has been so many news coverage of the Justice department, and social and criminal Justice and President Trump's tweet, you know, where there was a spike in loops of obstruction of Justice Justice apparently has been tweeted lot when politics come into play. And I don't know if that would really characterize the word of the year. Honestly, these probes are driving us crazy.
