FLUX AETERNA


Syntropy: negentropy/ negative entropy (a.k.a. extropy or entaxy) is the entropy that a living system exports to keep its own entropy low; it lies at the intersection of entropy and life.

Where does your tongue stay when you’re not speaking? If you’re an English-speaker, it’s behind the top front teeth. If you’re a Russian-speaker, it’s on the bottom of your mouth, lying flat.

“I have dermatographia, a condition in which one’s immune system releases excessive amounts of histamine, causing capillaries to dilate and welts to appear (lasting about thirty minutes) when the hypersensitive skin’s surface is lightly scratched. This allows me to painlessly draw on my skin with just enough time to photograph the results. Even though I can direct this ephemeral response by drawing on it, the reaction is involuntary, much like the uncontrollable nature of a blush.”

So the Denisovans (a sub species of Homo Sapiens, whose skull image is shown above), genome was analyzed.

The new Denisovan genome indicates this population interbred with an extinct archaic human population that lived in Asia more than 30,000 years ago, which is neither human nor Neanderthal.

They have yet to identify what this unknown species maybe.

PREHISTORIC SHARK: MEGALODON

Megalodon is an extinct species of shark that lived 1.5 million years ago and as you can probably tell from the above pictures it was HUGE, here are some few facts

  • It’s teeth were over 7 inches long
  • It’s bite can deliver from 10.2-18.6 tons of force, enough to crush a prehistoric whale’s skull like a grape
  • It feasted on prehistoric whales, dolphins, squids, fish, and even giant turtles 
  • It’s fossils have been found all over the world
  • No one knows why it went extinct
