Technically this should be split into two threads but I don't want to flood too much so I shall put these two things together: (1) Brain imaging reveals the movies in our minds http://www.tgdaily.com/general-sciences-features/58630-brain-imaging-reveals-the-movies-in-our-minds This is pretty straight forward and really cool. I also have the link to the actual research paper if anyones interested. Of course this is the beginning of a new era of ethical discussion where things like thought-crime and mind reading begin to be part of the reality we live in... (2) [and this is closer to my interest] Particles found to break speed of light http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/09/22/us-science-light-idUSTRE78L4FH20110922 This is VERY cool. However I must advise caution since this has a very high probability of being an error of one kind or another. But if confirmed I am sure everyone realizes that this is big... As someone who goes by the internet nickname SubTachyon for most of his life I find the possible discovery of the first tachyon-like particle very close to my heart.
