The Macaulay Library is the world's largest scientific archive of biodiversity audio and video recordings. Their mission is to collect and preserve recordings of each species' behavior and natural history.
"Material computation refers to the processes that manifest nature’s way of shaping the world around us. These processes primarily drive toward the structural optimization of matter. For example, we can look at the way a soap bubble negotiates (“computes”) the complex relationship between air pressure, gravity, and surface tension to find a shape of minimal energy which balances these parameters." Dimitrie Stefanescu ( Algorithmic Abuse )
Why is this famous physicist tweeting rumors about gravitational waves?
Gravity bends more than just space. It bends time. A massive object such as the Earth does indeed distort the fabric of space and time. This explains why GPS satellites must correct for time distortion: it passes more quickly in orbit than on the Earth.
