Ferrofluid Sculpture and Steven Pinker

This video of a pair of towers manipulating a magnetic fluid into extraordinary and beautiful shapes puts me in mind of how a utility fog construct might look, combining elements of solidity and fluidity in a fractal and hypnotic object.

More optimistic opinions from Steven Pinker, who comments in that deaths due to violence as a proportion of deaths overall has been decreasing over the past several decades and centuries.
