My favorite book, a collection of thought experiment short stories about life through the lens of death: "Sum" by David Eagleman

In the Future, We Will Photograph Everything and Look at Nothing

"What is NOT Random?" by Veritasium (a fascinating video about information and order)

A quote I like:

Neil Postman, author of “Amusing Ourselves to Death,” in the ‘80s wrote:
What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture.

"The Difference Between Being Broke and Being Poor" by Erynn Brook (illustrated by Emily Flake)

The quote: "Work for mankind, not the man."
