https://www.ft.com/content/e2041a1e-0d32-11e6-b41f-0beb7e589515 Early examples of biomimicry are found in Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches for flying machines and in the work of Filippo Brunelleschi: after studying the strength of eggshells, the Renaissance architect designed a thinner, lighter dome for his cathedral in Florence, completed in 1436. Later, in 1719, paper producers shifted from using cotton and linen fibres after French entomologist Réne-Antoine Réaumur suggested the wasp’s use of wood pulp in nest-building demonstrated a better alternative. In 1809, naval architect Sir George Cayley studied dolphins to make ships’ hulls more streamlined.Yet perhaps the most famous example of biomimicry came in 1948 when Swiss engineer George de Mestral walked his dog: it emerged from the bushes covered in burrs. After examining the burrs’ tiny hooks under a magnifying glass, he designed Velcro.Biological organisms have already provided solutions in areas such as zero-waste systems, low-temperature manufacturing and efficient materials and structures. Advances in scientific knowledge, manufacturing technology and digital design tools make now the moment to embrace biomimicry.

Mental models Seneca Ayn Rand In philosophy, “the Absurd” refers to the conflict between the human tendency to seek inherent value and meaning in life and the human inability to find any. In this context absurd does not mean “logically impossible”, but rather “humanly impossible”.The absurdist philosopher Albert Camus stated that individuals should embrace the absurd condition of human existence while also defiantly continuing to explore and search for meaning. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absurdism

Being able to express your ideas in a clear manner. Active listening. Understanding body language. Questioning. Giving a speech in front of an audience. Being polite. Be able to act politically. Controlling your anger. These skills are not easy to learn by reading or watching videos. You will rather practice it as you live. While we discuss, debate, defend our opinion we use some techniques (rhetoric), mostly instinctively. And inevitably most of us fall into logical fallacies sometimes.
