Which one is me!

Hello world! I’m a Washingtonian born and bred, have a B.A. in philosophy with a minor in English from Whitman College of same state, but was unable to enter the job market due to an unfortunate series of events related to libel and stalking which spanned more than a decade and probably should have resulted in some new laws on the books. Instead I ended up on the wrong medication with some hardcore symptoms that no one had much inclination to seriously address, in jail for 13 terrible months (why the BLEEP didn’t anyone post my cheap bail?), at a…

Perhaps the most distinctive aspect of modern life is its specialization. There are as many hobbies as individuals to pursue them, as many different products as citizens to purchase them, as many job descriptions as employees to practice them, as many working financial models as successful businesses, and as many subcultures as can be realized. The sectors of society, to the extent that they are logistical, orient around maxing out the mind’s capacity for encompassing existence’s diversity, stretching the boundaries of thought towards assimilating as much information as possible, and differentiating our modes of behavior to any extent which proves…

Brainstorm 1: CEMI Field Theory and Coherence Fields

CEMI (Conscious Electromagnetic Information) theory claims that synchronous neuron firing creates an electromagnetic field which suffuses across relatively large regions of the brain to stimulate even further neuron activity, which upon reaching a sufficiently robust level comprises the substance of fully conscious awareness. The originator of this theory seems to imply that the brain’s electromagnetic field differs considerably in composition depending on the quantity and kind of neurons which are firing in synchrony, giving rise to a large variety in the mental states observed.

The following is my “coherence field” theory: the…

The fine structure constant is a dimensionless combination of Coulomb’s constant “k”, electric charge “e”, Planck’s constant “h”, and the speed of light “c” in the formula ke²/hc. For any context of units, this constant usually has the same value, approximately 1/137. The maximum quantity of possible paired electron configurations or orbitals in an atom’s seven shells is 140, so that a single orbital is approximately 1/140th of an atom. Considering that orbitals may not be distributed with absolute uniformity in the space surrounding an atom, the distinction between number of orbitals and the fine structure constant as possible quantification…

Philosophy and science have long pondered the nature of time. It has traditionally been viewed as a constant though arbitrary yardstick in relation to which material change is measured, but do the basic equations of physics that employ it support this assumption? Let’s consider:

1.

The units of Planck’s constant are joule seconds or (meters^squared) * kilograms / seconds. This essentially amounts to distance squared multiplied by mass and divided by time, which I’ll call “(d^squared)m/t”.

2.

Wavelength equals Planck’s constant divided by mass and velocity, which can be written as w=((d^squared)m/t)/mv.

If we cancel mass, then translate the remaining…

Brainstorm 1:

A graphene nanotech compartment containing small samples of atoms or molecules is inserted into a graphene tube. Graphene is harder than diamond, nearly nonmagnetic, and only one carbon atom thick.

A fast triplet reaction sensor array resembling magnetoreception mechanisms is aligned to the outer walls of the chamber, sensitive enough to register magnetic fields of the molecules inside through the chamber walls, with perhaps a sealing apparatus at the insertion end to which further sensors are attached for 360 degrees of pattern recognition.

The magnetic field pattern is then translated and amplified into a digital signal sent to…

Sketch 1:

Pilot wave theory envisions matter as consisting in particles whose paths of motion are guided by supradimensional waves. Collapse models describe particles as resulting from mechanisms of condensation within a global wave. Can we combine the idea of supradimensional waves with that of particularization as a concentrated wave to derive an image of reality adequately represented by the square of the wave function?

Imagine a topographical map with waves flowing as peaks and valleys. Think of this as the architecture of our spacetime universe, the mutating square of the wave function. As waves travel around and contours morph…

Etiologies of early humans were mythical, the world populated by spiritual entities, including humans who used spells, incantations, ritualized acts of all sorts to summon, supplicate and grapple with causality from out of mystical ideation and a mechanistic ignorance punctuated by technical insight into the solution of practical difficulties. A human being could adroitly design a hunting spear and at the same time believe supernatural spirits determined one’s fate in every venture. …

  1. Mating and Birthing

The function of mating and birthing is obviously reproduction, sustaining the existence of an organism’s species and passing along traits that made reproduction possible. It is easy to see the kind of advantage reproduction enables: a nonreplicating bacterium can be outnumbered one to a million in less than a day. The eukaryotic (multi-celled) lineage evolved its structural template via three stages of symbiosis indicated by the relatedness of microorganism lineages to eukaryote genetic material. First, a single-celled organism from phylum Archaea with a particularly efficient genetic system was engulfed by another prokaryote, becoming the nucleus. Then bacteria…

a. The history of genetics

At the end of the last ice age, roughly 10,000 B.C.E., humans began intensively cultivating plants into crops and domesticating animals. Agriculture and livestock breeding selected a modest set of desirable traits such as caloric content, palatability and medicinal value, while animal husbandry improved strength, stamina, appearance and behavioral profile in dogs, cats and additional quadrupeds for purposes such as companionship, packing, herding, guarding, tracking, retrieving and aesthetic form. Since this selective breeding took place over many millennia, general trends were not examined with any comprehensiveness or much integration until life science commitments began to…
