What Sparks Darren's Curiosity?
If our eyes could be enhanced to see a wider range of the electromagnetic spectrum would we experience colours that we can't currently imagine or would our current range of experienced colours simply be stretched out? Can you imagine a colour that is unlike any you've seen before?
Does consciousness only reside in evolved brains/nervous systems or could there be other sufficiently complex systems that can receive inputs and act on them that could in theory be conscious? (e.g. computers, stars)
Could a steampunk-esque civilisation have developed before recorded history that created technologies which could be made by craftsmen and metal-workers (i.e. not require big advanced technological infrastructure)? e.g. things like clockwork, hot-air balloons, steam-engines.
