Twin Towers eerily remniscent of past event

Architects have designed a pair of apartment towers in South Korea that are unbelievably reminiscent of the 9/11 attacks on New York's World Trade Centre. If this image is in our collective unconscious, creating two apartment buildings connected by hanging garden terraces is a much better externalization of this image than what occurred on 9/11.

Alphaverse?

I am really beginning to think that the television series, "Charlie Jade," was more prescient than even I originally thought.

While there may or may not be other universes around us, these "glimpses into the future" seem quite dystopian and completely in line with the vision of Alphaverse outlined in that tv series, which only ran for one season.

The building called Vertical Landfill acts as a reminder of the outrageous amount of rubbish produced and includes a power plant that converts energy from the waste

Astronomers Find Dwarf Sun Beyond Pluto

The newly discovered brown dwarf is reported to be located just about 60 to 66 AU (1 AU=the distance from the Sun to Earth) from us (its parigee), currently in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. Because of periodic gravitational disturbances in areas of space further out, specifically in the Oort Cloud, the Spanish group of astronomers believe G1.9 travels in an elliptical orbit extending possibly hundreds of AU beyond the furthest known planets (its apogee). Its position just beyond Pluto suggests it is at its closest approach to the Sun and Earth.

The tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, aghast at what it calls the world's "suicidal path", has called on heads of state and leading economists to come to the capital Thimphu for a global summit to reform the international financial system and the way countries measure progress.
"We need to rethink our entire growth-based economy so that we can thrive more effectively on our own resources in harmony with nature. We do not need to accept as inevitable a world of impending climate chaos and financial collapse," prime minister Jigmi Thinley will tell the UN in New York on Monday.
