Around mid-summer 2017 I experienced a sudden and rapid loss of eyesight, so that I a year later could not tell how many fingers the doctor was holding up at arm-length distance.

Please don't be disappointed if I don't follow your account even if what you post is obviously in line with my interests. I simply can't follow all the accounts I previously would have or they all become useless. As for pure "follow-back", I never ever did that.

I always welcomed tips for content others thought I might have use for, as long as you allow me to find that not the case... without having to justify it.

I may not see messages you send me and that may not be malice. ;-P

Victory!

Heh, about 30 minutes after I had started watching the newly released videos from the 10th anniversary symposium at CARTA... CARTA announces that they have now released those videos!
I just checked on a whim before the announcement.

Anyway... I strongly urge you all to check it out:
carta.anthropogeny.org/events/
Anthropogeny is my favorite (transdisciplinary) field of science, as it includes all aspects of what humans are and how we became that, from all aspects including biology, sociology, archeology, chemistry, etc, etc.

Knowing more about who we are and why, can help us understand what we can become and how.
I'd say it's essential for anyone interested in radically developing human society.

Angry neighbors called police against a loud party until 2 a.m. this Thursday, as all employees held a party... at the police HQ of south-central Stockholm.
"โ€ฆwhen one plays Macarena that kind of signals the party is over", says neighbor.
"โ€ฆthere came a comment that we played Macarena โ€“ and that the party actually should be over then. There is a point to that", says police.

For over three hours today it was impossible to pay using the banks-run phone-based main replacement for cash in Sweden, "Swish".
This keeps happening and while it does, people can't travel home/to work, buy food/medicine, etc.
They don't even know why it happened.

Banks: Forcing vulnerabilities into society, for profit.
