Hidden Scents By Allen Barkkume

Hidden Scents will vaporize you into an aromatic molecule, tickling the brain-fingers in your nose. A cacophony of receptor neurons activating and inhibiting, you become a recognized pattern and... More > burst towards the limbic superhighway of the primitive organism. You are an emotion, a virtual body-state stored in memory, coming to life once again in the act of perception.

On the surface, however, it is a book about the olfactive system, not only of the human but of human culture. In the concluding series of essays, olfaction is used as a paradigm for navigating issues on the threshold of public discourse: space and dimensionality, artificial intelligence, quantum theory, and the future of the internet. Be warned - you might never smell the same again.< Less

As winters have become progressively warmer, the winter distributions of many birds have moved northward, by as much as two states for some species. Birds are responding to milder temperatures and longer periods of ice-free water and snow-free foraging sites in the Great Plains, and the shifts in their distribution provide critical indicators of the acceleration of global warming.< Less
