Speculation: Your Body is a DNA computer.
Not 0/1 but base pairs G/C, A/T that denature at different temps. The Sun was the first programer.

Four Types of Aliens?

October 1, 2019

There may be only Four Types of Aliens

Start with this likely premise. Life starts the same way as it did on Earth and it’s based on carbon chemistry.

That means it most likely requires the following:

1. Liquid water.
2. Temperature range that allows for liquid water, 0-100 C
3. Earth size gravity that holds in the correct atmosphere and gases needed to start life.
4. Plate tectonics and land to allow for a shoreline.
5. Sun/star to provide heat in a day night cycle.
6. Natural selection that leads to the type of social behavior that leads to high intelligence.

Those requirements suggest that life planets will have most of these 4 basic biomes; water, air, land, underground.

Convergent evolution suggests that there are basically 4 ways to best survive those 4 environments.

That means that advanced aliens are either:
1. Swimmers – like advanced dolphins or sea dwellers
2. Flyers – like advance birds or air dwellers
3. Walkers – like advanced hominids or land dwellers
4. Burrowers – like advanced gophers or underground dwellers.

Comments? For more speculation, see my two sci-fi novels.

Small Houses that People Can Afford

September 23, 2019

Small Houses!

Three points to get affordable new houses to most people: singles, seniors, couples just starting out, etc.

1. Small houses that cost 30-50K at most.
Architects love to design these small homes, and have many great ideas.

2. Don’t lump them into ghettos. Better to make a city law that only 5-10 small houses can be built in any neighborhood in the city.

3. Prefabrication with 10-30 models to choose from to avoid the cookie cutter look!
