What is the Difference Between Organic, Natural and Biodynamic Wine? Biodynamic wine-producing is a method developed by the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner in the 1920s. The philosopher focused on creating an entire fertile ecosystem and using an astronomical calendar for timing the different farming stages, including harvesting, pruning, watering and giving the vineyard time to rest. Moreover, this biodynamic concept is related to the four elements: earth, fire, water and ear. Steiner`s idea implemented a creation of a balanced and harmonious agricultural ecosystem.

The secrets of the biodynamic garden In the year 1924, Steiner gave eight lectures on agriculture that were the basis of the biodynamic method. According to the anthroposophical interpretation, the land and plants are not isolated, but are in tune with the rhythms of the cosmos and linked to their environment, animals and human activity. In this way, to the good traditional agricultural practices based on organic design, crop rotations and the use of legumes, Steiner added the influence of terrestrial and cosmic forces. Agricultural tasks focus on restoring lost vitality to the soil, to the landscape in general and to man in particular. (Sunday May 1st, 2022 — Zyri.net)

The Woman Who Theorized Color: An Introduction to Mary Gartside’s New Theory of Colours (1808) The history of color theory is a story we tell based on available facts. Like many histories, it has mostly been a story by and about men. Isaac Newton’s experiments with optics inspired the broader inquiry. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s 1810 Theory of Colors set a standard — visually and philosophically — for books about color in the following centuries. A series of lesser-known names surround them, to the founders of color monopolist Pantone and beyond. (Thursday April 21st, 2022 — Open Culture)

Mushrooms May Communicate With Each Other Using Electrical Impulses Mushrooms on a log may each seem like quiet, standalone organisms, but they're actually the above-ground, sporing fruit belonging to a fungus, connected to the large organism by a root network called mycelium. Although fungi may not seem very talkative either, a new study shows electric signals traveling through their mycelium network could help the organism communicate.

What is the best age to learn to read? I was seven years old when I started to learn to read, as is typical of the alternative Steiner school I attended. My own daughter attends a standard English school, and started at four, as is typical in most British schools. Watching her memorise letters and sound out words, at an age when my idea of education was climbing trees and jumping through puddles, has made me wonder how our different experiences shape us. Is she getting a crucial head-start that will give her lifelong benefits? Or is she exposed to undue amounts of potential stress and pressure, at a time when she should be enjoying her freedom? Or am I simply worrying too much, and it doesn't matter at what age we start reading and writing? (Tuesday March 1st, 2022 — BBC online)
