A Dark (Jellybean) Universe
This jar is a visual representation of our universe, in jellybean form. If you don’t like licorice — sorry, you’re out of luck. That’s because the black jellybeans here represent the mysterious duo — dark matter and dark energy — that pervade our universe.
Less than 5% of the energy and matter that makes up the universe is the normal, everyday matter that scientists understand. The rest is dark matter (27%) and dark energy (68%).
Five percent is… not very much. Imagine trying to read a book where you could see only 1 out of every 20 words on the page; the rest are all written in invisible-ink. You might be able to glean some idea of what the book was about, but you’d be pretty confused. That’s how physicists feel about the universe, and that’s why they are working hard to understand more about the universe’s enigmatic dark side.

Things to keep in mind while watching tonight’s episode.
REMEMBER: 311’s “Amber” is the only song listed on the True Detective official soundtrack that we’ve yet to hear this season.

Did you know? Prom is coming up! And you have a right to express your gender identity. Your school may be violating the law if it doesn’t allow a female student to wear a tuxedo or a male student to wear a dress.

Jesse Darling, Not Long Now (2014)
“I feel like human beings are basically adaptable and resilient, and I think we survive by doing this whole thing of shrugging off the rupture and embracing the damage as a necessary part of some longitudinal process in which there are no rights and wrongs as seen from space or whatever. That’s my strategy, anyway. Of course my survival strategy is inseparable from my philosophy of a lifeworld, so in that sense I’m an avatar for my own politics as far as it’s possible to be.
I take that pretty seriously somehow: to live your truth in the world and be the change you want to etc etc neoliberal-greeting-card-Facebook-banner-corporate-NGO-coffee-mug—you know the score. I’m into prototypes, though. Like before the truth became the cliché, somebody somewhere was out there shouting about that shit in the void.” — JD
