Let’s answer the big question

Are we alone? It is a crucial question, as the answer will profoundly impact how we view our place in this vast cosmos. Every night astronomers scour the skies for possibly habitable exoplanets and alien radio signals. As of yet, no sign of life has been found. But, is this…

It has nothing to do with being tough.

Life is tough. At any given time, tragedy, failure, injury and ruin are only a few steps away. Yet, the high achievers of our world have not only survived these trying times but thrived in them. These feats of mental resilience are often put down to willpower, grit and determination…

It can set you free.

Phrases are like spells. At just their utterance, we can change our mental state, for better or worse. As soon as “let’s call it a day” slips out my lips, my mind is already relaxing in the garden with a glass of wine, and nothing else gets done that day…

The internet could soon be useless.

The internet is one of humanity’s most extraordinary feats. Our modern lives are built on its foundations of lightning-fast communication, single tap payments, social media and remote working. Without it, you can say goodbye to Uber, Facebook, Apple pay, Spotify, Netflix and even Medium. But, a new breed of machine…

Is nuclear power deadly? Or part of our climate revolution?

The year is 1956, and in the northwest of England, Queen Elizabeth opens the worlds first nuclear power station, kicking off the nuclear energy revolution. Over the next few decades, hundreds more are built, delivering nearly carbon-neutral energy to the masses before we even knew about climate change. But then…

By now, most people think they know what the law of attraction is, the idea that we can manifest our dreams by visualizing what we want, and then BOOF, all our problems are solved. Except, this isn’t what happens, is it? We scrunch our eyes, see the future, and then…

Could it really be that simple?

By now, you are probably aware of the environmental crap storm heading our way. It’s not so much as the elephant in the room, more a chainsaw-wielding maniac waiting to go berserk. We are coming up with hundreds of possible solutions, from fake volcanoes to create artificial volcanic winters, to…

Uber, Airbnb, Tesla, Amazon & Google all use a simple principle to create massive growth, and you can too

Thousands of startups spring to life every year, but only a handful break into the public zeitgeist, gain traction and create a revolution. The rest either trundle along or die a quiet death. But if you look carefully at these break-out entities, you will notice they all have something in…

Musk might soon have to fight for space dominance

SpaceX is dominating the space industry. No one even comes close, not even Bezos’ Blue Origin can match its prowess. Musk’s rockets have a better payload, are cheaper to produce and run, and are more proven than anyone else’s. Elon even plans to churn them out in vast numbers to…

And SpaceX are already behind

Unless you have been living under a rock recently (which is understandable; what with Covid still lurking about), you would have noticed the privateer space race finally come to fruition. SpaceX, Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic all took ordinary people up to the stars. It feels like, finally, we can…
