Turning Skin Into Blood / Plasma Rain / Digital Philosophy

"Scientists Turn Skin Into Blood (w/Video)" Interesting Article on PhysOrg.  You'll also find this article reworded all around the web.

Today's a slow day so far as breaking science news, so go ahead and watch this short video awesomeness.  "Plasma Rain," a hundred million tons of it, erupts on the sun and falls back via the sun's gravity.

Here are a few incredibly fascinating topics.  You could seriously spend days on this stuff, and it could even potentially broaden your horizons.  I don't necessarily subscribe to the ideas, but they blow my mind nonetheless.

"Digital Philosophy" says that all actions and quantities in nature can be boiled down to integers, and further to 0 and 1.  A binary universe if you will.  Interesting isn't it!  http://www.digitalphilosophy.org/

To build on this, there is the "Simulation Argument."  Could it be possible that our universe in not only binary, but down to bare bones, a computer simulation in itself?  Here's an insightful Paper that seems to me to make more sense then it ought to.  These ideas are far out, and it's startling to see a logical and levelheaded argument.  Very cool ideas!
