Top philosophers tribute:
Aristotle - Father of Philosophy

Plato
- Founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world

Socrates - Socrates was a classical Greek philosopher credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy. He is an enigmatic figure known chiefly through the accounts of classical writers, especially the writings

Epictetus - Believed that all external events are governed by fate, and that we must stoically accept our fates

Rene Descartes - Founder of modern philosophy. He discovered many scientific points, such as refraction and reflection, and espoused dualism, which is the power of the mind over the body, or “mind over matter.” His most famous quote is “I think, therefore, I am.”

Confucius - He advocated for honest emperors who had limits on their powers, and encouraged everyone to live by a version of the Golden Rule: “What one does not wish for oneself, one ought not to do to anyone else; what one recognizes as desirable for oneself, one ought to be willing to grant to others.”

Thomas Aquinas - He was the person who famously argued the “first cause” – that there had to be a God, because the universe had to be created from something, and had to have a beginning and an end. He based all of his teaching on the Bible, which makes some believe that he was not truly a philosopher, as they were not original ideas. He made five major arguments on the existence of God, all of which are still hotly debated today. One of his most influential accomplishments was a simple four-part instruction on the cardinal virtues: “justice, courage, prudence and temperance.”

John Locke - Focused on politics for most of his life, John Locke’s words wound up in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. “Government with consent of the governed” is one of his most important points, and so are the three natural rights: “life, liberty, and estate.”

Immanuel Kant - He was an advocate of human rights, and is best known for his views of transcendental philosophy, as well as the numerous texts he authored to set forth his ideas. He assigned a great deal of importance to human cognition, and determined that the answers to the universe were not in the world itself, but within the minds of those who reside in it.

Jean-Paul Sartre - Focused on three ways of being: being in itself, or the unconscious being; being for itself, with each part having independent thoughts about being alive; and being for others, which means that in order to grasp the reality of others, we must first grasp the reality of ourselves. He frankly stated the “man is in anguish” because of his responsibilities to himself and fellow man.

Karl Marx - Many people would argue against Karl Marx being one of the famous philosophers. One of the most controversial and divisive writers of his time. His works, such as Manifesto of the Communist Party, were often considered handbooks of the Nazi Party, thus furthering his controversial stance. He formulated the idea of surplus value, as well as historical materialism. Though he offered a great deal to the world of philosophy, when he died in 1883 there were no more than a dozen people at the funeral.

Your Brain Is Hardwired to Snap, Road-Rage Proves it

We have these circuits because we need them. Most of the time, they work amazingly well. We don’t call it snapping unless the result of this aggressive response is inappropriate. When it works as intended we call it quick thinking or, in many cases, heroic. We have these circuits to protect ourselves, our family unit, or society.

I think this true. I get road rage REAL fast and really bad. I almost lose it. Especially in NY.

I see your healing crystals, and raise you invisibility cloak

Some small breakthroughs are slowly moving the science forward

Scientists are getting closer to creating a real-life invisibility cloak.

A new study published in the journal Science shows scientists have created what they are calling a “ultrathin invisibility skin cloak for visible light.” The cloak has been shown to cover an object and—by manipulating certain wavelengths of light—render it invisible.

Light plays a central role in how we see objects. According to the Los Angeles Times, usually light bounces off of things and becomes distorted, which helps a person see the angles and curves of an object. However, the LA Times writes that the cloak is covered with “nanoantennas made of tiny gold blocks of different sizes that can counteract that distortion, making it seem to an observer like the light is coming from a flat surface.”

Yeah I seen that.. Albert Einstein was the one to bring that theory now it can finally go to rest. There's also experiments being down to show how two lasers can significantly move through the gravitational waves by a very small percentage off balance

For engineering you need both. Well, not the specific degree I'm going for, but I took chemistry just in case I change my mind later on and don't wanna be a Computer Scientics/Information Systems manager and wanted to be a Mechanical Engineer or something else instead. Either way, looks nice as an elective class (chemistry).

Physics 1 with Cal should be fairly straightforward since it's just mechanics. Physics 2 is a bit tougher tho, that's when you begin discussing electromagnetism and optics...
