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.

Why Will Aliens Look Like Earthlings!

December 13, 2018

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!

Carter Ward Space-Rat

June 21, 2018

Dear Reader,

Musea’s long time columnist Gregory K. H. Bryant has a new novel out. Carter Ward Space-Rat is a sci-fi adventure about the ‘rogue of the spaceways.”

This photo shows my copy!

Gregory, used to write these wonderful essays for my zine. Later I found out that he was also an artist, and as I saw his work posted, I found him my favorite contemporary artist, and one of the greatest I’ve known.

Search him out for his art work that covers just about every genre, his photos, his books now available, or his essays.

Congratulations on the new book!

Tom Hendricks

Light and Time, Question for a Physicistd

June 14, 2017

Sent this question about LIGHT AND TIME, to ASK A MATHEMATICIAN See there website at
askamathematician.com

My Question.
Light is outside time, but if it enters a Bose Einstein Condensate, it slows down. How do we reconcile that the photon is both outside time, but slows down?

Their Answer.
There’s a post here that talks about that a bit.

http://www.askamathematician.com/2013/07/q-what-does-it-mean-for-light-to-be-stopped-or-stored/

Basically, when light exists, it’s traveling at c. When light “slows down”, then at least part of the time it’s not light. In the experiments where light is “stopped” it would be more accurate to say that it is “stored”. Very carefully prepared condensates (not just any old condensate) stops light kinda like a vinyl record stops sound (kinda). Hope that helps!

What a Day (Astronomy Poem)

May 19, 2017

What a day
when he figured it out –
Not a star cluster
within our galaxy
but its own
with another behind it
and another and another
and a field of them
that seemed to stretch
back and back further.
