On Earth's Early Organisms
Science? Scientists? Peer Reviewed?


A. Quotations from "Life on Earth took a licking, kept on ticking"
http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id...kept_on_ticking
Earth's early organisms may not have had to restart after a long spell of asteroid impacts about 3.9 billion years ago...

- Even if all of the bombardment’s impacts happened at once, life could have survived, Mojzsis notes. “Although we tried to kill everything, we were unable to,” he adds.

- Many of the bombardment’s impacts would have snuffed out any photosynthetic organisms, which depend on light to survive.

- The new study “is a nice piece of work".


B. These statements are about earth's early organisms 3.9 billion years ago?

Search background comprehensions re why "Circadian Rhythm" dominates all life functions, why we sleep. The answer may point out the absurdity of the above statements.

Prsdnt Obama Should Consider An Overdue Introspection
(remarks of a self-considered scientist)


A. Again: Prsdnt Obama deludes himself re the required economy collapse cure.

It's not just the economy that collapsed. Not just the financial system-policies. It's the 20th century technology culture that collapsed.


B. Again: money printing will not cure the technology culture greed cancer.
http://www.the-scientist.com/community/pos...0/122.page#2306

Scientism = a doctrine and method characteristic of pre-Technology-Culture-Era scientists, and the proposition that classical scientific doctrine and methods of studying natural sciences should be used in all areas of investigation and of conduct, to societal-cultural-civil affairs. An approach by rational humans seeking an efficient practical, as fair as possible, viable civic framework.

From a scientism perspective it is an exasperating disappointment that the national and international "Science Establishments" have not examined their own contribution to the collapse, their own 100-years obsequious deterioration into servents of the Technology Culture, and into the ludicruos inflated self-esteem image that many of them have rightly earned and project today.


C. And further: Science and scientism are relevant and involved in ALL aspects of national and international culture and life and thus in all political policies.

Yet basic, non-applied science, since the 18th century Enlightenment the banner of social and societal evolution out of entrenched traditional doctrines and values, has been abandoned in the 20th century and presently barely survives in few institutions. Enlightenment's inherent philosophy and attitudes in regards to individualism, universal human progress and the applications of reason have been squeezed off the western culture highway by the flood of values, attitudes and texture of life of the Technology Culture.


D. And still further: Prsdnt Obama has been elected to office by and within the 20th century technology culture society, a society that still resists internalizing, accepting, admitting its cultural collapse.

Society not only has not yet internalized its cultural collapse, but is persistently striving against basic rationalism, scientism, to re-invigorate the terminally ill technology culture, its values and its economy.


E. And still more: about aspects of international political policies

"Western culture" is the ongoing dynamically evolving science-informed culture, initiated in Western Europe, tinted with a variety of regional/national/ethnic/religious aspects. Its essential characteristic is a continuous flexible adaptation to ever evolving science-informed findings-comprehensions, with various degrees and modes of concurrent dismissal or modification of traditional supernatural cultural phenotypic aspects. (my own definition. DH)

International politics is about evolutionary biology, about Darwinian evolution. It is about ethno-phenotypic competition and survival issues. It is still very far from Isaiah's (32:16-18) the wolf will live with the lamb.

In their dealings with Western Culture most other ethno-phenotypic cultures rightly rely on the tragically naive Western, specially American, assumption that takes it for granted that everyone, yes, e v e r y o n e, thinks and believes Western and has Western morals-ethics. Don't they?

This, Mr. President, is not the case. The case is evolutionary biology, survival of phenotypes within the human genotype. Until humans learn to follow nature's finding that cooperation is the best and only mode of survival.


Finally, it is vitally important for now charting the future course of our society to learn and understand, to analyse and assess, with a scientism perspective, the evolution and collapse of the Technology Culture and the implications, within it, of the bare survival of basic classical science, of the further comprehension of our place and fate in the universe.


Respectfully suggesting,

On sleep, for adults and kids and "scientists"


A. FOR KIDS: Brain cells take a break
http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id...ls_take_a_break
As you fall into deep sleep, some neurons pause their electrical activity.


B. Sleep is a most obvious evidence of genes' lifehood and their origin

Sleep made simple. Why do organisms sleep?

Sleep is an inherent Earthlife trait. Organisms sleep because their genes-genomes sleep. And for genes, sleep is inborn because genes were the first organisms evolved on Earth and they came into being, born, through the sun's radiation energy absorbed by RNA-type oligomers, and the newborn genes were active ONLY when exposed to sunlight, which was then - prior to bio metabolic energy production - their only usable energy. Thus sleep is an inherent Earthlife trait.

The Fractal Oneness Of The Universe
Focusing

The universe is the archetype of quantum within classical physics, which is the fractal oneness of the universe.

Astronomically there are two physics, a classical physics behaviour of and between galactic clusters, and a quantum physics behaviour WITHIN the galactic clusters.

The onset of big-bang's inflation started gravity, with formation - by dispersion - of galactic clusters that behave as classical Newtonian bodies and continuously reconvert their original pre-inflation masses back to energy, and with endless quantum intertwined evolutions WITHIN the clusters in attempts to delay-resist this reconversion.

Life Is Earth's Cheapest Commodity
Focusing


A. From "Real And Virtual Energy, And Keynesian Salvation Prospects"
http://www.physforum.com/index.php?showtop...45&#entry384952

"Energy is the real, non-virtual, monetized currency of the universe and of life."


B. Earth displays a great number of animate and inanimate commodities

Just as energy is the real, non-virtual, monetized currency of the universe and of life, so Life Is The Cheapest Commodity on Earth. What makes life the cheapest commodity on Earth is its continuous replenishment by Earth's biosphere.


C. And what makes the biosphere continuously replenish life

is the continuous, even if precarious and temporary, striving of the biosphere to capture and store energy by the format of Earth's primal organism, the genes.


D. And what makes the biosphere capture and store energy

is the quantum mechanics behaviour of mass within galactic clusters, resisting reconversion of mass to energy as the clusters are doing as they keep moving away from the point of big bang in a classical Newtonian mode.

Evolution, Genetics And Culture
There is no Science except for the Establishment's alone, and Peer Approved is the Establishment's only apostle?


A. From "Adaptation and the evolution of parasite virulence in a connected world"

http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/...ature08071.html
Adaptation is conventionally regarded as occurring at the level of the individual organism, even if some posit the idea of adaptation at the group level.

This from Nature advance online publication 27 May 2009, Received 13 January 2009, Accepted 9 April 2009, Published online 27 May 2009. Nature is a member of the Science Guild Establishment, of course.


B. There is no Science except for the Establishment's alone, and Peer Approved is the Establishment's only apostle

The Science Guild Establishments, since its Mount Sinai Revelation as AAAS, has been prostituting all aspects of science, including the meanings of the terms science, scientists and research. It monopolized all terminology and publications of information, blocking insights and evolution of science. It turned the organization and activities of science into a ludicrous caricature of a corrupt trade union. This is the origin and explanation of the circa 100 years old black hole in science and of the zero effect of science on societal evolution during the still ongoing 20th century technology culture.


C. Culture, and, yes, intelligence, are ubiquitous traits of ALL matter, not just of life but including life

Adaptation is culture. And culture is the driver of Universal Evolution, of all evolutions.
"Rethink Unified Field Theory And Evolution"
http://www.the-scientist.com/community/pos...60/122.page#982

Animate and inanimate materials differ from each other in the capability of responding (intelligence) and in the mode and speed of responding (culture) to circumstances. These differences are due to the energetic constructs differences between animate and inanimate materials.


D. Yes, there is Science outside the Establishment's, and Peer Approved is not its only apostle,

Suggesting,

Dov Henis

Botanists Wrangle Over
How Brainer Can Genes-Genomes Go


A. No-brainer behavior?
http://www.sciencenews.org/view/feature/id...rainer_behavior
Messages, memory, maybe even intelligence, botanists wrangle over how far plants can go.


B. How far do organisms go? In time, as far as their circumstances drive their culture and enable them to go.

Evolution: symbolic concepts and practices


A. "Engraved pigments point to ancient symbolic tradition"
http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id...bolic_tradition
Analyses of patterns incised on pieces of ancient pigment indicate that people in southern Africa passed along symbolic practices from 100,000 to 75,000 years ago, scientists say.


B. "Inception And Prevalence Of Western Monotheism, monolatry is not monotheism"
http://www.physforum.com/index.php?showtopic=18243

90,000 year old double burial of Homo sapiens at Qafzeh cave in Israel is best evidence of symbolic concepts and practices much earlier than 90K years ago.

Journal Impact Factor
= measure of the citations to science and social science journals


JIP is regarded as "the science of rating scientists and their research"

What does JIP have to do with "the science of rating scientists and their research"?

This is another glaring sad example of the prostituting, by the sience establishment guild of the 20th century Technology Culture, of the terms science, scientist and research.

I am asked if I have a better suggestion on how to rate scientists and research.

I do not pretend to have any suggestion on how now to scientifically rate scientists and research.

The present science establishment is, IMO, widely-deeply cancered with the malignant 20th century Technology Culture, of which public rating is one symptom. Tackling only this one single symptom would be a very difficult task.

My most probably hopeless approach is to stir the stagnant water and initiate evolutionary changes that would eventually re-place science, scientists and research where Western culture departed from Enlightenment circa 100 years ago, when it dealt with the essence of nature and life evolutions, and elected to become a pierced-ear slave (Ex.21, 6) to the Technology Culture .

IMO it is vitally important for now charting the course of our society to learn and understand, to analyse and assess, with a scientism perspective, the evolution and collapse of the Technology Culture and the implications, within it, of the bare survival of basic classical science, of the further comprehension of our place and fate in the universe.

Brain Energy Use Key To Pseudosophisticated Gibberish


A. Brain energy use key to understanding consciousness, Yale researchers find
http://opa.yale.edu/news/article.aspx?id=6754
IMO : Brain Energy Use Key To Pseudosophisticated Gibberish

B. On consciousness, in plain language
http://www.physforum.com/index.php?showtop...65&#entry408800

Now we can understand why, and grosso modo how, all the organs and processes and signals found in multicelled organisms have their origins in the monocells communities. And this includes the functions of serotonin and melatonin and, yes, the evolution of neural cells and the neural systems with their intricate cellular outer-membrane shapes and functionings and with their high energy consumption requirements.

Nice use of mindless spamming and long insane rants. All you really need now is a long beard covered in your own saliva, a manifesto you printed yourself and a street corner and you are set. I am assuming of course that you don't have those things already, which could be mistaken on my part.

Careful though...


The secret science Illuminati might be watching you at this very moment with their big reptilian eyes.

Again pure ignorance. There is quite a lot of classical behavior within the galactic cluster... and on my table ... chair...etc.

You really show no understanding of classical vs quantum at all.

I think I have wasted enough time for now... sheesh.
