    The Outer Limits of Reason

    Rather than jumping headfirst into the limitations of reason, let us start by just getting our toes wet and examining the limitations of language. Language is a tool used to describe the world in which we live. However, don’t confuse the map with the territory! There is one major difference between the world we live in and language: Whereas the real world is free of contradictions, the man-made linguistic descriptions of that world can have contradictions.

    America will soon surpass the clean energy standards Trump wants to kill

    Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, first announced in 2015, caused no end of political controversy in conservative circles for its ambitious carbon-cutting goals. By February 2016, the Supreme Court halted enforcement of the regulations due to complaints from 29 mostly Republican-led states.

    We finally have a computer that can survive the surface of Venus

    Venus is one of the most inhospitable places in the solar system. Descending through the clouds of boiling sulphuric rain is actually the easy bit—the hard bit is not being cremated by the surface temperature of 470°C (878°F) or crushed by the atmospheric pressure, which is about 90 times that of Earth, the same as swimming 900 metres under water.

    Spain wants to start post-Brexit trade talks with Britain as soon as possible – defying the EU

    Spanish government officials want to start negotiating a trade deal with the UK to take effect after Brexit, going against the official position of key negotiators in Brussels.

    Accused drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán appeared in a U.S. court here for the first time Friday, pleading not guilty to the charges against him as prosecutors revealed in stunning detail how they intend to build and prove their case. Guzmán, dressed in dark blue prison garb, said, “Yes, sir,” in Spanish as a judge asked questions about whether he understood the charges against him. He was not handcuffed and seemed subdued during the hearing, which lasted less than 10 minutes. His ...
