Like Herbert, many scientists and engineers also report heightened states of creativity while using LSD.
"We have been deeply touched by our experiences with psychedelics and it is hard that there is not a single legal study with LSD given to humans anywhere in the world," said Doblin. "We need to bring what is underground and illegal back into a legal context."
Photosynthesis is awesome and learning about it can only help solar research since it's had a lot of the engineering kinks worked out of it. This article shows just how damn efficient it really is. It's a pretty technical piece but if you can follow it, it's impressive as hell.
Nutshell version of article: Light hits the photosynthesis chemical. Parts of the chemical oscillate at different energies. These oscillations interfere in a quantum way (over many possible frequencies) and the one with the best resonance (the oscillations that get along best) wins. This optimal interference is how the energy gets transfered.
