Hydra Vulgaris / Joscha Bach
Oct 21st, 2021 by contentclearinghouse
Hydra Vu-whatnow? Is this some kind of nearly immortal fresh water polyp? Actually... yes. That's exactly what it is. This weird looking creature has quite an enviable superpower (immortality) and a biological trade off that might make you question whether you’d want to live forever. After Josh talks Polyps, Nick talks People! Well one person in particular, J. Bach. No, not Johann Sebastian Bach! The other Bach. Cognitive scientist with a focus on cognitive architectures, models of mental representation, emotion, motivation, sociality... dang. He's no polyp but he's pretty Bachtastic: Joscha Bach.
