Physics of your soul: why your two types of gravity matter.

(Reading time 4 minutes) There is that something you ought to be doing. In fact its something you should have done yesterday, but you put it in the “I’ll sort it out tomorrow” basket. It’s that call to someone you rather not have to speak with. It’s that email that you need to reply to […]
