Why Aliens will look like Earthlings

January 10, 2019

Why will ALIENS almost surely look like EARTHLINGS?

Two words, CONVERGENT EVOLUTION – in this case it works for two planets!

For life to start there must be a planet in the Goldilocks zone. That includes a temperature range that allows for liquid water.

But it must also have a certain atmosphere.
When the planet is too big, like Jupiter, it has the wrong atmosphere. When the planet is too small, like our Moon, it doesn’t hold in an atmosphere. Wrong atmosphere, wrong chemistry – no life.

That means that life planets always have THE SAME GRAVITY!

That means that the life on those watery planets with the same gravity will have life that faces the same natural selection as our planet.

That means that life anywhere will evolve to the best ways to: SWIM, WALK, FLY, and BURROW!

Convergent evolution means they will come up with virtually the same solutions to how to best swim, walk, fly, and burrow, that life did on Earth.

SO, if aliens are ever found, they should be much the same as life on Earth – CONVERGENT EVOLUTION!

Direction in Evolution

December 20, 2018

Read any biology text and it’ll say the same thing:

THERE IS NO DIRECTION TO EVOLUTION.
THERE IS NO DIRECTION TO NATURAL SELECTION.

But I say that is WRONG. I say there is a direction to evolution, and I think that once I tell you, you will agree and prove the textbooks are not correct.

The process of evolution always goes toward better CATABOLIC, and, ANABOLIC processes.

Natural selection does not select worse CATABOLIC, or ANABOLIC processes..

(This is also in my sci-fi novel, “Writings In Science, a History of the Future.”)

Take this further:

Mutation that is positive to a catabolic process will enhance anabolic processes.
Mutation that is negative to a catabolic process will be mitigated by anabolic processes – and vice versa. So not only is there a direction to evolution, but there is support from the other half of the catabolic or anabolic processes when mutations happen.

Holding Genes Passes Genes

December 8, 2017

Holding Genes, Passes Genes!

This article, “Holding Infants – or not – can leave traces on their genes,” supports an idea I’ve had called “Carrying the Baby.”

My sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science a History of the Future” suggests that a key reason for the development of humans brains are ‘carrying the baby.”

First humans (hominids) walked upright. This led to their hands free – not only for war (most scientists are men) – but for carrying the baby.

This led to a stronger mother child bond, that I suggest supported everything from language development, to human intelligence.

Read the article, then read my sci-fi novel, perhaps the biggest ever written. Now available at all major streaming book sites.

Poems Written in November 2011

Poems written in November 2011
Comments welcome.
[poem notes in brackets like this]

POEMS
1
Picasso’s distorted faces
show a repressed angst.
This is rampant in modern art
and displays personalities that are split –
torn apart and filled with rage.
2 [from Writings In Science – my sci fi anthology]
When we are sailing
light years away
how can we still
smell the sea air?
3 [from Writings In Science – my sci fi anthology]
A telescope was made
that magnified the smallest.
There in the eye piece
was a room full of wigglers –
waves that sometimes
merged and strengthened
or trough and crest
vanished away.
4.
Life bustles
is self involved,
active, pushy,
wants every niche,
wants to mate,
and its kids to grow,
wants more sun,
or rain, or food,
and sometimes a day
to celebrate!
5
I began a new sketchbook
and drew a spark!
6.
knowing comes
like a firefly
that bumps your back
in the dark
7.
I looked at my
empty bowl
and the rattling
spoon – a bell!
8.
lines
in my palms
like
I Ching stalks

SAYINGS

If there are gravitons, are there anti-gravitons?

Rule of evolution – you don’t change unless you have to.

Dracula, now that’s a novel I can sink my teeth into

Does the sun have a shadow?

You wade in the river where you are.

Police are starting Occupy America.

Congress is like high school except there are no adults in the room.

Truth has a way of being wrong sometimes.
