Flight Facilities take off with "Clair de Lune"

If flight is your fancy for today, then the posts on this date shall be interesting. First off it's a blast with an Australian-based electronic duo that combines 1970's disco with Daft Punk and Quincy Jones. They have a habit of using revolving female vocalists like Melbourne songwriter Giselle Rosselli and Christine Hoberg who sings the most current single "Clair De Lune" streamed in the above link. It is fitting, however, that any disco or dance that is produced in these musical pieces are equalized out by using melancholy-esque vocals and synth textures. So if you like to dance to slow-burn music, listen to the female-vocalist-of-the-day, and like supporting indie artists then Flight Facilities is your spoonful of Vegemite. (See, I can creatively melancholy too!)

If we are to take off from the music review into a machine review then one could take off into the next progression of human evolution. In today's machine post, Paul Davies, a British-born theoretical physicist, cosmologist, astrobiologist and Director of the Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science and Co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative at Arizona State University, advises that any space-exploration would have to be AI-enhanced machines. SETI (Search for advanced Extraterrestrial Intelligence) would even go further and explore non-habitable locations such as neutrino stars and black holes. Roger Launius of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, however, advises it would be best to alter our own physiology rather than create one or have an A.I create one on its own. The article continues to stipulate that possibly the process of human evolution is a small, brief step to a more machine-like morphing into a new species. One can only speculate at this inflection point in time.

Human Species at an Evolutionary point in time.
