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.


Who is Getting the Cash from Streaming?

February 17, 2018

This article from Digital Music News is about streaming revenue.

The scary fact coming out of it is this:

99% of the 377 billion streams are for the top 10% of streamed tracks!

That means a handful of major stars are making all the money, and the crumbs, 1% of streaming revenue, is left to 90% of musicians.

Yet another reason for the music revolution. for more.

Video, All the Birds in the World

February 4, 2018

Just posted a youtube video minutes ago, of a very happy keyboard song. I’ve been writing a massive amount of music, mostly on guitar with a break on the piano, and this little 5 chorder came out with a lot of spirit and joy.

Now imagine a sky with all the birds and listen.

Saying of Editor Art

December 19, 2017

HERE are more sayings from the Editor of the zine Musea

We foolishly think we are modern because we’re on the cusp of time.

Where is the anti-photon? Must be both dark and well hidden.

Who is your favorite Beagle Boy?

Freeze Frame Face – an ugly photo of a person done by searching through a video till you get the most horrible expression.

Was that a dragon or am I seeing things?

TV has grown up while Hollywood has dumbed down.

There is less new blood in Hollywood then in a single mosquito.

Korean TV dramas are like an Ibsen play but with more guilt!

That Perry Mason, he never goes a single novel without getting into trouble!

Be 80% conscientious. that’s enough for me.

Perhaps the best way to end poverty in a country is not to give them anything, but instead stop taking away what they have now.

We foolishly think we are modern because we’re on the cusp of time.

To be a pop star, start with these 3 things an electric keyboard, a drum machine, and auto tune. Then things start getting fake after that.

Journalists, there should not be a deadline on accuracy.

X: I’ve had it!
Y: No you’ve got a little more to have.

Music should be about what we want to hear not what they want to promote.

Millennials, more weird then they look?

Show some courage and take back music from 3 CEOs.

I asked my instructor the great trapeze artists if I could start on the ground floor.


Beethoven Fix?

December 16, 2017

So if I have enough gaul to ‘fix” the art work of celebrated masters in painting, do I have enough to ‘fix’ the music of Beethoven on his birthday today 16th?
(Perhaps added to, or made my version, would be a better tem, but not as provocative.)

Fractured Beethoven (this piece was made and played by me. BTW this is not easy to play!)
