Walked the dogs 135 miles in December, 1,534 in all for the year, just shy of last year's 1,567.

Not sure what this is. I gathered some seeds last spring thinking it was some kind of acacia, but the leaves seem more gingko-like. The trees are multi-trunked, 6-12 feet-ish. Anyone?

To what end then would ye still and still walk these difficult and toilsome ways? There is no rest, where ye seek it. Seek what ye seek; but it is not there where ye seek.

A fight for the soul of science (Quantum Magazine). I like how the "other universes" in the illustrated scale look like single-celled organisms.

Personal theories: You and I live in different universes. A single awareness transcends time and space. Interstellar travel will become possible when we learn to master scale. (I don't know what any of these notions mean, but neither do I have to.)

The best book I read this year (Atlantic).

As for me, I think I'm gonna go with Lorna Doone and The Falling Sky.

Books I'm hoping to read before 2016 arrives: Cixin Liu's The Three-Body Problem.

Physicists send particles of light into the past, proving time travel is possible? (more ideas)

Uh, mathematically possible, but still cool. I especially like this: "This particular experiment illustrates how what happens in the present can change what happened in the past. It also shows how time can go backwards, how cause and effect can be reversed, and how the future caused the past." Hear, hear.
