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.

Fitness of LIfe as 3 separate parts.

March 15, 2019

Reading this, George Gaylord Simpson said that the only goal he could find in life was that it expands across the planet. That got me to refine my suggestion of these three goals for all life:

Life evolves to each species’ highest fitness in 3 categories, 1. nurturing self, 2. protecting self, and 3. sexual reproduction success. Then it stays in stabilizing selection, until something changes and selection pressure forces it to adapt to the new condition.
That, if true, opens up a lot of new ideas.

100 Moves Exercise Program

March 12, 2019

100 Moves, Exercise Program.

“100 Moves” is an exercise program that is simple and works for everyone. That includes kids to seniors. People can do this standing, sitting, or lying down. Works with music or without. It takes no lessons and is easy from the start.

Here’s how you do 100 moves:

Just move any part of your body 100 times. Count as you move your arms, legs, head, and/or body, and stop at 100, (or any set amount.)

You can do the same motion more than once, or a different one, or a different combination of moves, or anything else. You can do sets of moves, or make every move different. You can do it with others, or by yourself. You do not need a trainer for this.

100 Moves gets you moving, and you do it in a way that you like, that feels right for you. Great for seniors that don’t exercise enough, kids between classes, office workers that need a quick in place exercise break, etc.

Your body will love it, your mind will feel refreshed, and you’ll be more ready for the day ahead.

Note: 100 moves is also featured in my sci-fi novel, Writings In Science, a History of The Future. In the novel it is the most popular form of exercise.

Sayings Connected to WIS, Writings in Science, novel.

February 23, 2019

Here are some new sayings connected to my sci-fi novel, Writings in Science.

Periodic table, a chemical Rosetta Stone.

Overweight people are worried they can’t control others (infant nurturing issue) Underweight people are worried they can’t control their bodies (infant infection issue)

Placebo effect means M&Ms are a miracle drug if you think they are.

Q. Is there a higher form of life here than humans?
A. Yeah birds (and giraffes.)

The UV daily cycle forced the chemical selection that led to life – all else was destroyed.

UV is the gorilla in the room. It both powers chemical selection and destroys all but the most stable chemical system in that environment.

Key advantage for first cell to reproduce is that it allows that father cell to grow again and become virtually immortal. Beyond a certain size cells cannot grow larger.
The first cell division was natural selection for the father cell to continue to exist more so than to make daughter cells, or reproduce genes.

The only reason that life began, was chemical selection in that first environment that caused some chemicals to survive the daily onslaught of UV from the Sun.
The Sun powered every aspect of the origin.

Human health has been based on a high fiber diet for millions of years. We’re built to stay hungry till our body gets it’s fill of fiber.

If life didn’t start like it did on Earth, then it began in a different way, with a different chemistry. That’s like saying that each planet has a different periodic table.

I’m not a scientist, but I play one in my sci-fi novel!

I think humans have an extraordinary ability to recognize voices – 100s of them!

Human health has been based on a high fiber diet for millions of years, and we will stay hungry till our body gets it’s fill!
(So when your body is hungry, it’s hungry for high fiber food.)

Your gut bacteria will make you hungry night and day until it gets it’s fiber like it has had for millions of years.

The ever present now.
