Hard Science in WIS Sci-fi Novel

February 19, 2018

Science Hypotheses from the Sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science, a History of the Future”

This sci-fi novel is big with not only lots of adventure stories, but hard science ideas. Here are some of the key ones.

1 The origin of life. Suggestion that the daily cycle of UV forced chemical selection with life the most stable reaction. (Also a daily wet, dry cycle too). Genetic coding was first for ” Double Stability”. That is stability that keeps what works, and adjusts what needs work in that environment. That is the main reason for coding and for our genomes.

2. Carrying the Baby concept. Hominids being bipedal allowed mothers to carry, caress, and soothe the baby. This mother child bounding may have led to the faster evolution of language and intelligence.

3. Why do we sleep? The main reason, besides resetting the digestive system, and building memory, is for the bodies immune system to attack any infection, mostly in the gut (73%), the mouth (23%) and the skin.

4. The Stream of Consciousness method of teaching is a way to educated many times faster than the current systems. SOC.

5. People Power, a low tech power source anywhere there are people, such that there is never an emergency where there is not power.

6. New type of selection, the transfer of gut bacteria from mother to newborn child.

7. The emotions of fear and anger evolved out of the defense system against infection in the gastrointestinal tract. Anger from gut infection. Fear from mouth infection. This ties directly to why we have overweight or underweight problems.

8. The idea that the nervous system is made up of separate parts that are often in conflict, lead to an internal civil war of conflicting unconscious drives, and that solving this inner trauma resolves many outer social problems. The idea that there is a somewhat separate nervous system for each of the 3 germ layers in bilateria.

9. Thermal regulation decreases mutations.

10. There is a direction in evolution, and it is toward better catabolic and anabolic processes. Catabolic and anabolic chemical processes evolved, but did not blend. Negative mutation on one side may be minimized by a positive aspect on the other. A positive mutation on one side may support a positive change on the other.

11. Selection Pressure Model:
The greater the selection pressure – directional or diversifying selection – the greater the speed of evolution in the area of the selection pressure, AND
the lower the selection pressure – stabilizing selection – the lower the speed of evolution in the area of the selected pressure. Or in simple terms, nothing changes until it’s forced to.

12. Separation anxiety or stranger anxiety, may be the reflection of the biological loss of breast milk in the infant. Separation anxiety may be the infant’s separation from breast milk to ‘stranger’ first foods and liquids. Stranger anxiety may be the reflection of the infants immune system’s response to first solids or first infection.

13.There may be selection pressure within the body itself. Kwashiorkor, a disease caused by lack of protein, where the body competes for what protein is left, seems to support this.

14.The reason for our sweet tooth may be connected to the fact that sugar brings quick energy, and it is the easiest and fastest food to digest.

Biological Basis to Fear and Anger?

October 23, 2017

Finally, after studying the problem over many many years, I may have some discoveries about where Fear and Anger came from.

SUGGESTION, the two key emotions of FEAR and ANGER have a very specific biological basis.

Both emotions have evolved out of key parts of the digestive system in all living things. The two are tied to taking in nurturing while protecting against infection.

FEAR is the body’s response to any infection.
FEAR helps us BLOCK OUT and EXCRETE OUT infection.

ANGER is the body’s response to hunger.
ANGER helps us TAKE IN and HOLD IN nurturing.

We are AFRAID when we think there may be infection.
We are ANGRY when we are hungry.

FEAR seems to be most active around the mouth and nose before eating.

ANGER seems to be the most active in the small intestines when taking in nurturing.

SUGGESTION, most of these digestive emotions of fear and anger, happened in infancy when we were setting up our body’s digestive system and defense system. That was the time of the most danger. That was also the time of the most emotions of fear and anger.

SUGGESTION, because the digestive problems of infancy were unconscious developments, and because they were the most intense periods of infection fear and nurturing anger; they may lead us to unconscious adult problems of excess fear, or excess anger.

This leads to all the autoimmune diseases and negative behavior connected with this excess, repressed, infant, fear and anger.

There is much much more to this, and more implications than I can fathom right now.

Prebiotics

June 8, 2017

Prebiotics may be a way to combat childhood obesity. It is a powder in a liquid that supports the growth of good bacteria in the gut.
More and more we are finding that the biome in the gut is a key element to all health. See more posts on this in this blog. Here is more from Science Daily

Read for Dollars – Sci-fi novel WRITINGS IN SCIENCE, a history of the future.

October 17, 2016

Musea is known for contests. Here is one open to all.

Love Sci-fi? Want to make money reading it?
How about a contest where you read for prize money and the first person who reads it gets $100 and the first THREE that enter and read it are guaranteed to win?

My sci-fi novel Writings in Science is pretty good. I want to get the word out, but with all the books out there, somebody has to READ it.

Be the first, second, or third, and you will get a check.

Rules

Be the first to read my novel and get $100
Be the second and get $60
Be the third and get $30

Fine Print. The first THREE people that contact me and promise to stream and read the novel will be the only ones entered. The book costs $5.99 up front, but I will add that amount to each of the prizes.

WHEN I GET THREE PEOPLE, I WILL E-MAIL ALL OF YOU WITH THESE WORDS GO! THE CONTEST STARTS NOW.

It is streaming at AMAZON / I-BOOKS, and BARNES & NOBLE

Finer Print. You must have a US mailing address for me to send the money. You must prove in some way that you have purchased and read the novel to get any of the prizes. (I may ask a question or two about some section – nothing too tricky). You must e-mail me when you are finished reading..

It is big with many pages, so if you get a dry section you may skim, IF you don’t overdue the privilege.

I get to decide all ties and such.

What do you think?

WRITINGS IN SCIENCE , a History of the Future, is a sci-fi novel told in stories, essays, poems and play.

The premise is this. The Earth is in it’s final days as the erratic Sun is about to expand. A man named “I”, collects his favorite Writings in Science, and leaves in the last days. This is that collection.
