Before taking off, I gazed respectfully into the eyes of my crew. The young masculine figure to my left held my hand for comfort, as the lulling of the electrical impulses transported my awareness to a new vessel. -- A conundrum - that's what this was. Intelligence had, yet again, outsmarted itself. However in this … Continue reading the probe (1).
For as long as I can recall, if you were to have given me colored pencils or square sheets of paper, in one automatic swoop - as if a sacred construction of the soul - I would create. Always, geometric patterns guided my instincts. There is a little saying that math is the universal language. … Continue reading the universal language.
A great deal of my semester in programming with Python utilized the intelligence of for and while loops. Interestingly, it turns out the human complex makes great use of similar programming. They are exactly as they sound - upon reading a line of data, the program begins to execute a loop of behavior until otherwise instructed to terminate. Or, … Continue reading i am the program, i am the programmer.
Thump, thump, thump, the morning insights ferociously rattled my cognitive stew. Consciousness seeing consciousness creates zero point energy, it said. It pulsated like an angry vein upon my pre-frontal cortex - my forehead on the verge of explosion from the passionate persistence of intuition. Without intellectualizing the concept of zero point energy, I intuitively understood: Zero … Continue reading consciousness & zero point energy.
I had finally unearthed the darn thing when the call for lunch sounded, vibrating the cochlear fluid and basilar membrane located in my inner ear. Thanks, ear anatomy, for converting pressure waves, to mechanical vibrations, to electrical signals. I had no intention of joining them that afternoon, but there was a much deeper calling to be … Continue reading cerebral extractives (2).
There is a mysterious universal force that moves our skin, our bones, our breath. We often witness this in dancers: their hips swaying and bodies billowing. Or in the contemplative gaze of a painter: the sigh before the massive leap. We find this especially, in lovers: the trembling of two eager presences, united. There was an … Continue reading intimacy with the universe.
In biological terms, there are many mechanisms by which our genetic expression is tightly controlled & monitored. These have been implemented over thousands & hundreds of thousands of years for the intention of biological efficacy. There was a time, however, when our bodies and spirits belonged only to the flow of our personal expressions. But … Continue reading where is our sovereignty?
Darwinian thinking & Mendelian genetics, as outdated as it may now seem (see: Quantum Biology), once provided a basic framework for understanding things like trait inheritance, evolutionary mechanisms, and DNA. Where it was once believed that the genetic cards you were dealt are impenetrable and static, we are now finding this to be less & … Continue reading genetic adaptability, holistic health, and that which is instinctual.
The incredible diversity of organisms on this planet, from the very beginning of our primordial stew, may primarily attest to the various roles that need be fulfilled in nature. In the study of ecological sciences, this is referred to as a niche. Gigantic organisms and microorganisms alike, all beings and factors inclusive, serve a multitude of … Continue reading ecological diversity, niches, and an argument for individualised expression.
There is a silly precept that in every fig you eat, there is at least one dead wasp. It is only partially true. Between 70 and 90 million years ago, the relationship between the fig & the wasp began; a true romance. These two organisms are now characterized as existing in such a deep symbiotic relationship that … Continue reading fig wasps & the sweetness of life.
