Binary Stars Could Stabilize Planets To Be Habitable
That's really interesting, because historically, the case was exactly opposite of that, where binary systems were deemed to make planetary system less stable. Funny how things change when someone actually does the math !

considering how common binary systems are this could be quite positive for life out there..... but then again time will tell.

Free Will and Paranormal Beliefs by Ken Mogi

"Free will is one of the fundamental aspects of human cognition. In the context of cognitive neuroscience, various experiments on time perception, sensorimotor coordination, and agency suggest the possibility that it is a robust illusion (a feeling independent of actual causal relationship with actions) constructed by neural mechanisms. Humans are known to suffer from various cognitive biases and failures, and the sense of free will might be one of them. Here I report a positive correlation between the belief in free will and paranormal beliefs (UFO, reincarnation, astrology, and psi)."
