#R2BC Monday’s #GoodNews

Time is all around us and it can be very easy to think that we never have enough. However, as we look ever closer at our universe we have now been able to measure a Zeptosecond, a trillionth of a billionth of a second.

As we consider that for a moment, we all know that being unable to make the most of the time we have can be far worse. How seconds can drag on like hours, with us unable to do anything but wait. For sufferers of ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease/Motor Neuron Disease/Locked-In Syndrome being unable to move, to communicate etc. must be a hell that most of us cannot possibly imagine. If I have a favourite story today, one that genuinely speaks of joy and hope it is this.  That a brain implant is allowing a woman in the Netherlands communicate, play games and have a life, using just her thoughts.

What an amazing time to be alive:
