A Sweet Fact

Sorry that I haven't been able to post a lot, I won't be posting as much because of school. Here's a cool fact I just learned:

Did you know that honey is the only food that does not spoil? Jars of honey discovered in ancient Egyptian tombs have been tested and found edible.

What is nothing? Is it the absence of particles? Is it only a mere concept? Does "nothing" exist? If "nothing" exists, what shapes would it take? If it is nothing then you shouldn't be able to see it - right? What was there before the Big Bang? Nothing or "Nothing"? If there was a block of nothing a mile long could I stick my hand into it and have my fingers stick out a mile away because of course it is nothing. No space, no distance - "Nothing" or nothing?

Consciousness - what does it mean?

I got an interesting question from theo regarding the Blue Brain post:

"What, do you think, does it mean to become [artificially] conscious at the level of a human brain?"

I thought about this and have some thoughts. To become conscious means 3 things -

1) Being able to acknowledge your own existence
2) Being able to have a change of opinion
3) Being able to have an irrational bias

What do you think it means?
