Dwarf Galaxy Poses Puzzle. A nearby dwarf galaxy—seen as a cloudy splash of stars in this Hubble Space Telescope view—seems suspiciously young to astronomers. Dubbed DDO 68, the youthful-looking galaxy is surprising because it resides only about 39 million light-years away, according to the European Space Agency. That’s unusually close since most... - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...
Dwarf Galaxy Poses Puzzle.
 
A nearby dwarf galaxy—seen as a cloudy splash of stars in this Hubble Space Telescope view—seems suspiciously young to astronomers.
 
Dubbed DDO 68, the youthful-looking galaxy is surprising because it resides only about 39 million light-years away, according to the European Space Agency. That’s unusually close since most young galaxies are billions of light-years away.

theparisreview: “Translations are creative acts that don’t come from the self, at least not in the usual sense: In the translator’s creativity, the generative seed isn’t planted in quite the same way. There’s a third party involved, a God or Gabriel, an author who’s both the originator and totally absent from the actual formation of the translated... - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...

Jacques Lacan reminds us, that in sex, each individual is to a large extent on their own, if I can put it that way. Naturally, the other’s body has to be mediated, but at the end of the day, the pleasure will be always your pleasure. Sex separates, doesn’t unite. The fact you are naked and pressing against the other is an image, an imaginary... - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...

Why our faith in cramming is mistaken - http://mindhacks.com/2014...
K.D.: My suggestion is that neither theists nor atheists know whether God exists. And here I don’t just mean that they don’t know for certain, but that they don’t know at all. It was about God, wasn’t it, that Kant famously wrote “I had to deny knowledge in order to make room for faith”? Whatever it does or doesn’t do for faith, my denial of... - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...

"The world is immense, constructed on no plan or theory which the intellect of man can grasp.". http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post... Rutherford via James
"In Job," says that coldly truthful writer, the author of Mark Rutherford, "God reminds us that man is not the measure of his creation. The world is immense, constructed on no plan or theory which the intellect of man can grasp. It is transcendent everywhere. This is the burden of every verse, and is the secret, if there be one, of the poem.... - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...
