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.

Want to go to Mars?

January 20, 2018

Want to go to Mars?

Yes, everyone would be excited about a manned mission to Mars,
Yes, I love science, and have even written a huge sci-fi novel* that is a history of the future that features colonies on Mars. Yes, that would be great but first ….

The science community has to find some solutions for problems here on Earth. Solutions that end poverty,get clean food and water in abundance for all, end major diseases, devise low cost power, and combat global warming,

THEN, everyone will be on your side and behind you. Then everyone will cheer when the first rocket sails for the Red Planet, lands and returns.

First things first. Then go with the world’s blessings!

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!
