Organic Alchemistry 3: Ancient DNA Upgrade

spacemonkey

(Continued from Organic Alchemistry 2:  Wave Genetics)

We humans are spectacularly unimpressive.

We may think we’re hot and our shit don’t stink, but truthfully, in the grand scheme of things, humans aren’t as unique as we think we are.  There’s truly not very much that differentiates us genetically from our closest cousin primates, the chimpanzees and the bonobos.  In fact, given enough evolutionary time, they will also move out of their second density existences and graduate onto our level of consciousness.

Don’t believe me?  They have already started moving into their own ‘stone-age’ (I’ll get into this in a future posting).  But you know what, this post is not about them.  This post is about us, and how we got fast-tracked onto 3rd density before our time.  External-intervention is something that is unforeseen, and part of the unexpected, human-induced sequent changes that i wrote about in one of my previous posts, which, my friends, is how it happened (more on this, in upcoming posts also).

denisovans_fig_1As you can see from the diagram, humans (homo sapiens sapiens), chimpanzees (pan troglodytes), and bonobos (pan paniscus) are genetically separated only by about 1.2% from each other, with the gorillas, coming in at a distant 1.6% from the trio of homo and the two pans.  [1]  So what is it that makes us uniquely different from chimps and bonobos?

Looking at the diagram, it is fairly obvious that while all the other primates have 48 chromosomes, we only have 46.  It seems then, as if we are two cards short of a full deck, but that’s not really the case at all.  In reality, by casting away a small amount of our chromosomes and turning off other small segments, we, in effect, got a DNA upgrade, and this one wasn’t a minor one.  It was a major product release!

We went from Homo 2.4 and jumped all the way to Homo 3.3* in what amounted to a tiny sliver of time on the scale of biological evolution.

bottomsup

The upgrade happened over 200,000 years ago, but we only found out about this latest upgrade in 2005, when we finally learned enough to figure out something that had been hidden within our bodies for all that time.

We discovered a fused chromosome that allowed us to move, as a species, onto a divergent path, away from our brethren great apes, to become part of the human race. But more importantly, the fusion event reduced our chromosome numbers without losing any information at all.  In fact, it looked to have been done by a top-notch surgeon.

This surgeon took great care to delete sections of redundant information, as well as turned off other areas that needed to remain within the DNA sequences, but not necessarily expressed.  It was brilliantly done, and it was as precise as any bio-engineered project done today.

In fact, I’m going to go on a limb and say that with our technology as of 2017, I don’t think we could do as fine a job.  Maybe in another twenty or thirty years…maybe we can duplicate this feat, but for now, we can’t approach this delicate of a job with the butcher tools we have.

This fused chromosome is not found in any primate or mammal, living or long dead.  It is only found in three variants of the human species:  the Neanderthals, the Denisovans, and us.  It is called Chromosome 2.

Chromosome 2

cropped-pandagirl.jpgTo say that there have been numerous debates about this chromosome is to put it rather mildly.  People have been known to come to verbal blows over this gnarly little chromosome, and for good reason.

When one’s very identity, or the relevancy of one’s God is put on the line, arguing about an ideological point of view is the least bloody of the ways people have tried to settle their differences.

How it works is thus:  Throw into the fight ring a bunch of people who have die-hard ideas about evolution and creationism and let them duke it out until there is only one man left standing.  That last man still alive will be able to claim that his God (be it the God of Atheism or some other Deity) is the best God of all.  And that’s how God is able to stay alive and relevant.

In any case, I need to get on with it and talk about the actual thing that matters–the chromosome itself.

Chromosome 2 is a very important chromosome in the human genome.  It is the second-largest human chromosome, spanning more than 242 million base pairs and represent almost 8% of the total DNA in human cells. [2]

The chromosome is a gorgeous result of an end-to-end fusion of two ancestral chromosomes, and the handiwork cannot be considered anything but brilliant.  The sections that needed to be snipped were done at the precise section in between two important nodes, and the resulting unused ends were cleanly deleted.

dicentric

Then, within the remaining section that had been fused together, certain areas that were redundant were either turned off, or removed completely.  In the diagram below, you can see that the single-ended telomere of the chimpanzee chromosome changed into the double-ended telomeres of the human chromosome.

HumanChimpChromosomes-1The single chromosome was created by careful alignment of the various areas that needed to be aligned.  Then, someone with a very sharp scalpel, snipped it with razor precision and then joined them back together at the snipped ends, resulting in a chromosome with double-ended telomeres.

Of course, you can argue that it is simply a mutation from the process of evolution, but realistically, mutations of this nature are very rare, and the probability that this mutation would occur at the same time in large numbers of individuals is so staggeringly low that I am going to assume its impossibility.

Furthermore, we have an almost fail-safe system whereby chromosomal rearrangements of this type are not easily passed to our children because we have two copies of each chromosome.  When mutations this severe occur in a person, it will affect one of the chromosomes and he or she will often be unable to produce gametes.

To add another layer of protection, we have to also take into consideration that a baby has, not one, but two parents. The other parent also contributes an additional set of chromosomes which allow for self-correction of any natural mutations.

girlguyWhen the chromosome number in the sperm doesn’t match that of the egg, it usually does not get fertilized.  If the egg actually gets fertilized, which on the rare occasion will happen, it almost always results in one of three situations.

  1. The zygote dies and is discharged.
  2. An infant is born with serious genetic diseases.
  3. A healthy infant is born with serious genetic mutations that causes him or her to be infertile later in life.  [3]

Problems associated with chromosomal alignment lead to spontaneous miscarriages and genetic abnormalities such as Down’s Syndrome.  The chance that the offspring will be both viable and fertile is slim to none.

Of course, some folks will argue that evolution was the only component in this development, and I would take that into consideration—as soon as we find a single instance of a human with 48 chromosomes. If it were true that a chromosomal split occurred in human evolution, then there would be two distinct human groups, one with 48 chromosomes, and one with 46 chromosomes.  [4]

skeleton.jpgThe problem is, we have never been able to find a single human, dead or alive, with 48 chromosomes, and it wasn’t for lack of trying.

We sequenced all the ancient bones we could find, and out of all the humans (there are currently three types), ancient or otherwise, every single one of them was a bonafide card-carrying 46-chromosome Homo.

Now, the three types of humans (actually there is one other that shows up in our genetic sequences but we haven’t been able to find any fossils of that particular human group yet) are the Neanderthals, the Denisovans, and us Modern humans.

Anthropology can now confidently report that Neanderthals, Denisovans (and this other yet-unnamed human) are in fact the same human species as you and me.  They are genetically speaking, true humans and are fully part of the human lineage–which brings me to another question.

Why do they have cool names like Neanderthal and Denisovans, and all we get is the designation of Modern?

Blue Roses

blue-roses-7

I woke up this morning with vivid images of blue roses.  The image was as clear as if I was awake and looking at the roses in full daylight.  In my lucid dream state, I was able to zero in on a single petal and look at its genetic makeup.  The genes show something that is startling.  In my enlightened dream-state, I knew exactly what I was looking at.

Now that I’m awake, I am no longer an enlightened being, so I can’t even tell you what it was I saw, but I remember seeing long lines of codes, like machine language, but biological in form, running in quick succession, across the very fabric of the rose petals.  It was a language that I could read and understand as easily as plain English.

bluerosesA guy was lying in the room, near the roses.  He looked rather sick.  I was going to check on him when a woman appeared next to me and handed me twelve waxy brown pills, cut into squares.

“Eat them,” she said.  “They are made from the blue roses.  Immortality pills.  Take them and you will be free of diseases.”

I pointed to him.  “I think he needs them far more than I do.  He looks bad.”

She reached out and gave him a handful of the waxy square pills.  “There’s plenty of these.  Eat yours.”

The guy gulped them down gratefully and sank back onto his bed.  He did look much better after taking them.

Curious as to their effects, I threw them into my mouth.  They tasted like waxy gummy bears.

For a moment, nothing happened.  Then I woke up.

I went online and looked up blue roses.

There are no such things.

My dreams are useless sometimes.

Through the Endless Void

(Continued from Intergalactic Voyage Extraordinaire)

So!  You’ve managed to snag a seat on a voyage into the cosmos.  Congratulations!

After the first few days of excitement, however, you will find that things will have settled down to a dull roar.  The daily and nightly routine, perfectly maintained by the ship’s crew as a means to allow for the human body to adjust to the fact that, out here in Nowheresville, there is no sun, and therefore, no day or night, is nearly perfect.

drinkingcoffeeBut who are they kidding?  That morning wake-up call may sound like the morning has arrived, but deep down inside, you know, by the ubiquitous low hum of the ship’s machinery, that there is no morning.  There is nothing but the deep, dark, endless void of forever night.

So you know what I would do?  I would put on my happy face, order some dark strong brew, and as I am drinking up the hot beverage-of-choice, I would add some bright Ultraviolet B waves to the lights above to trick my body into thinking it’s a bright cheerful day on Mother Earth.  Just a bit of that ole vitamin D really does the trick.

A few stretches, ten minutes of meditation and deep breathing, and off to the shower we go.  There is no substitute for fresh oxygen from a mountain retreat, of course, but a molecule of oxygen is a molecule of oxygen, and the body does with it, what it will.  All we can do is what we can do, and the small things that we do for ourselves are very much appreciated by our body.

makeup_girl.png

One of the things that helps tremendously is to get a nice pot of aloe vera and keep it growing during your trip.  The environment inside a ship is very dry and rather cold.  Static builds up quickly, so try to stay moisturized.

For dry lips and hands, snapping off a small tip and applying it to the skin works wonders.  Also, adding oil to the skin after bathing helps to lock in moisture in an otherwise very dry environment.

As to the rest of the day, the best thing to do is to stay busy.  Creative endeavors tend to be more rewarding than watching a movie or a sports game.

Staying engaged and focus on something fun allows for time to move quickly, and that’s what you really want, because don’t let anyone kid you.  Space is huge!  The vastness of space, as defined by the distances between two heavenly bodies, is mind-numbing.  There is a short amount of time when you are rushing around, doing something important, but once that flurry of activity is done, it’s all a matter of hurry-up-and-wait.

If it wasn’t for the fact that we got new technology, like this photonic propulsion engine, giving us warp speed the likes of Star Trek, I would never get my ass on one of those generational spaceships, the kind that takes two or three full generations of people to get from one place to another.  [2]

space-stars-vashperado

Imagine spending your entire life working to keep a spaceship humming along, knowing full well that you will die long before your ship reaches destination.  You nevertheless work diligently so that your children and their children might make it there alive.  And then what happens?

Your children get to the destination planet, only to meet and greet other people who have been living there for ages, due to faster-than-light technology that was discovered during the time the generational ships were in flight.  They got there in a matter of months, as opposed to a matter of generations of humans.

88_head_shots_by_vashperado-d70bun9-e1488825193956.jpgThat’s gotta be a depressing thought, and we Taobabes are not about depressing thoughts.  We are all about positive, creative thoughts, and an enlightened viewpoint.

So what do you do when there’s nothing to do but stare out at the distant stars?  Why, you look at the travel catalog and wonder what the next world you land at is going to look like, of course.  And this busy Taobabe would be busy doing the exact same thing.

Let’s take a look at Snow White and her seven dwarves, shall we?  Since we know absolutely zilch about this solar system, I’m going to take some artistic license and write up a bit about each of these planets…play-pretend as if I’ve been there before, and describe it in a more evocative fashion than what NASA has managed to do on their website.  Because let’s face it: size, circumference, temperature, and radius is only something that guys obsess over.  (I’m going to let you think about what I just said).  I’d rather read up on the more colorful details.

Trappist 1

trapp2snowwhite

Here are the seven dwarves again, just to refresh everyone’s memory.  I have removed the Disney characters because we no longer need them as mnemonic devices, and I have added basic dimensions for each planet.

For comparison’s sake, I have added the radius of each planet, in relation to Earth.  For example, if Doc has a radius of 1.09, then it is slightly larger than Earth, arbitrarily designated as radius 1.

trappist1-bDoc (Trappist-1 b) is a terrestrial exoplanet that orbits a M-type star. It has a radius of 1.09, takes 1.51 days to complete one orbit of its star, and is 0.01111 AU from its star. [1]

Personally, what I see is a very hard boiled egg yolk, seared in various places by a sun that, although dimwitted and dulled by age, still has a spicy kick to it once in a blue spasm.

Visit Doc if you wish to get that famous irradiated flash-broiled Cheetos suntan from time to time.  It makes for a good conversation-starter with the likes of Prez Trump.

The other option is that you could maintain a safe distance from above, via floating cities cloaked with force-fields that will stave off most of the dangerous radiation.  I would presume this world would provide a very colorful vista below, in all shades of oranges and reds.

trappist1-c.pngGrumpy (Trappist-1 c) is a terrestrial exoplanet that orbits a M-type star. It is 1.38 x Earth, takes 2.42 days to complete one orbit of its star, and is 0.01521 AU from its star. Its discovery was announced in May 2016. [1]

Grumpy looks rather nice from above, and in many aspects, it probably is.  It’s far enough from Snow White, our ageing solar dance partner, so that it doesn’t get quite as much of the heat but still manages to stay nice and warm.

Think Death Valley, on a warm summer day, and you will have Grumpy in a nutshell.  Having said that, the poles will be on the cooler side, which means habitation is not only possible, it’s also desirable.  Even Death Valley has oases with which to draw liquid sustenance from, and even Death Valley blooms and grows, and Grumpy will be no different.  Hope springs eternal, and so does liquid water, from its underground honeycombs.

trappist1-d.pngHappy (Trappist-1 d) is one of seven Earth-sized planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system. About 40 light-years from Earth, the proximity of the planets to their red dwarf star may indicate that any of them could have water on their surface. [1]

Happy, happy, joy, joy.  It’s the second smallest planet that circles Snow White, and due to the fact that it is only 3/4 the size of Earth, it will allow us to move around with ease.  We will have lost a huge amount of weight with zero efforts at dieting, and walking around on the surface would be akin to taking a step and springing up three feet above the ground.

As the image shows, it is tidally locked, which means the side that faces Snow White is always going to be daylight, whereas the side that never faces Snow White is always going to be part of the eternal nightshade.  This means all the liquids will be existing around the ring of twilight, and there, we will (mostly) stay.  Vacations here will be perennially twilight or sunrise, depending on your mood.

trappist1-e

Sleepy (Trappist-1 e) is a terrestrial exoplanet that orbits a M-type star with a radius of .92 that of Earth–very close to Earth-size for bodily comfort, but just slightly small enough to add a spring in your step.  It takes 6.1 days to complete one orbit of Snow White, and is 0.02817 AU from its star.  [1]

Think of Hawaii.  Better yet, think of Barbados.  This world is just about as close as you can get to paradise, complete with puffy white clouds and a watery ocean filled with all sorts of interesting creatures.  You can snorkel, scuba dive, surf the waves, and play along the airways with your jet packs and skis.  You can also indulge in the activity of doing nothing.

This place is perfect for those of the less-adventurous nature…namely yours truly.  All I want to do when I get off the dang blasted ship is to lie about on the Promenade deck and soak up the sun, with a melting tropical drink and a nice Bahamas tune playing in my headset.

trappist1-fSneezy (Trappist-1 f) is a terrestrial exoplanet that orbits a M-type star. It is 1.04 radius, which makes it slightly larger than Earth.  It takes 9.21 days to complete one orbit of its star, and is 0.0371 AU from its star.

Sneezy is an interesting planet.  Although it is very similar to Sleepy in composition and size, it needs a little bit more terraforming for it to be truly comfortable, in that posh Sleepy way.

Don’t get me wrong.  If you are into all things cold and snowy, it’s a perfect environment for those who love to ski and revel in colder climates.  It’s just a little too cold for my tropical butt.  Too much ice.  Too much snow.

trappist1-g.pngBashful (Trappist-1 g) is a terrestrial exoplanet that orbits a M-type star. It is 1.34 in radius, so a bit larger than Earth, takes 12.35 days to complete one orbit of its star, and is 0.0451 AU from Snow White.

This is one where I would advise that you look out your window and wave as you fly by, because as pretty as it looks from above, the atmosphere is rather noxious.  The clouds are composed of methane ice crystals since the absorption of red light by methane in Bashful’s atmosphere gives the planet its distinctive aqua color.

Unmanned probes would be the ticket here, so we can take a glimpse of the surface of this bashful planet to see what’s down below.  I’m sure there are plenty of organisms that are right at home in a methane-filled environment.  And NO, they won’t smell rotten.  That godawful stench that most people associate with methane is just other swampy gasses mixed in.  Methane itself, has no smell, so any living things there won’t be ostracized due to its scent.

trappist1-h

Dopey (Trappist-1 h) is a terrestrial exoplanet that orbits a M-type star.  It has a radius of .76, so it is the smallest planet of this system, and rightly takes the Dopey name.  It takes 20.0 days to complete one orbit of its star, and is 0.063 AU from its star.

Being this far out from that sleepy old red star, misnamed (by me, of course) Snow White, it will be rather cold.  In fact, it is going to be covered in permafrost…as in permanent frost.

This place will probably end up looking much like a north pole outpost, with a single igloo-looking station and a single flag pole with the Earth flag stuck on it, waving forlornly at whoever happens to pass by.

And there we have it.  All the planets of Snow White.  I’ll be back, I’m sure, to fix the names to whatever folks far above my pay grade decide they are going to be.  Until then…safe travels, my friends.

Intergalactic Voyage Extraordinaire

traveler

Ever since we found out about Trappist-1 and her seven dwarves, my bags have been packed and ready to go!  Heck, not one, or two, or even three brand new worlds to save and introduce freedom to, but SEVEN of them!

We’ve got seven flags on seven poles to stick into each and every one of those blasted spheres.  If they don’t stay upright, we keep sticking them in and sticking them in until they’re done!

Here’s our flag, by the way, if you think I’m joking.

International Flag of Planet Earth

international_flag_of_planet_earth-svg

International Flag of Planet Earth [1]

This looks to be legit and the real deal because it has been depict on spacesuits, on a Mars base and even in Antarctica.  Because…you know…Antarctica is not really part of Earth.  It is its own entity and is already owned by otherworldly beings.

Don’t believe me if you wish, but I am telling you…Antarctica is owned by no one (no one we know that is), and not because it’s a schmutz continent that nobody wants, but because it’s already claimed land.  It’s in the same category as Mars.  Let me ask you this.  Which country owns Mars?

None would be the correct answer.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The other big tip-off that it’s legit is the fact that Pernefeldt, the person who came up with this design, admitted that he received the ‘help’ of several entities, including NASA, LG Electronics and a few other experts in astronomy, design and chemistry, among others.

I don’t know about you, but I see NASA’s fingers in just about every slice of pie that I’ve been looking at.  Don’t get me wrong.  I actually like NASA!  I just wish they treated us with a bit more respect, a little less condescension.  I mean…not all of us are flat-earthers, and not everyone thinks the world came into being six-thousand years ago.

Sadly, there are too many rabid and fearful folks out there that the truth can’t be told because, truth of the matter is, most people can’t handle the truth.  Even something as innocuous as, there’s life on other planets in other solar systems and other galaxies and nearby universes, is something that a huge swath of the people on our planet can’t even get their heads wrapped around.  They are so afraid that they will arm themselves to the teeth and run for the hills, shooting at anything moving.  Because that’s just how we humans react to something not within our realm of comprehension.  Shoot first, ask questions later.

I am actually okay with the image on the flag.  Heck, it’s not even original.  In fact, it’s downright ancient; about as old as dirt.  We’ve seen this design many times before, in ancient Mesopotamia and Ancient Asia, to name a few places.

 

I’m laughing as I write this because only a few days ago, I was writing about the 7 day rule for life to emerge, and today, I am linking the two together without having had any plans to do so.  The flag, in fact, is depicting the first seven days of life, in vivo.

It’s truly serendipitous that I can tie subjects together so effortlessly, and in fact, my posts quite often get hijacked, from one subject matter to another because my brain keeps connecting stuff.  I am not going to get into the details of it all because don’t want to get into biophotons, genetic waves, and the 7-day-rule right at this moment in this particular post, but I do want to add that it does link up.

Here is the diagram, which I will repost when I get back into genetic waves.

fl_sl_4

The Egg of Life is the bottom right image.  It is the same image as the International Flag of Planet Earth.  (I know, I know…it doesn’t look as purdy, but trust me, it is a very basic diagram of the same thing).  More on this in future postings, but first:  Trappist-1 and her seven dwarves.

Trappist-1 System

NASA is so sure you will want to travel to Trappist-1 that they’ve already made travel posters to entice you to go.  Here is one of them.

trappistTravelbureau.jpg

NASA Travel Poster [2]

We’ve gotta go!  After all, Trappist-1e has been voted as the best ‘hab zone’ vacation spot, not too far from Earth…barely 12 parsecs.  Come on, that’s barely…what…a few weeks away, with that brand new not-yet-understood EMDrive spaceship we just got!  What could possibly go wrong???

But which of those planets on Trappist-1 is e?  It gets doubly confusing when  we don’t even have a planet a.  In fact, the first planet on this solar system is named b, for whatever reason.  So tell you what I’m gonna do.  I’m gonna rename them for awhile, just so we know what we’re talking about.  And then when they get properly named, I’ll go back, delete this posting (or change it round really quick), and post the real names on them.

Here goes:

trapp2snowwhite

dwarfs

I took the NASA image and erased the boring banal letters next to each name (Doc used to be called b, and so on and so forth until you got to Dopey, which was named h).  So now, I can reference them by name and we will have no more mix-ups.

Turns out Trappist-1e that’s posted above is actually Sleepy, but we’re jumping the gun here.  Let’s start with Doc, since he’s the first one near Snow White.

Is You Is, Or Is You Ain’t, Got You No Warp Drive?

cute-anime-girl

So tell me Mr. NASA.

Is you is, or is you ain’t…….got you no warp drive, eh Mister N?
‘Cause you say dis an’ you say dat, but ain’t nobody understand.
So is you is, or is you ain’t, got you no warp drive? 

You have to pardon my skepticism.  The messages go from warp zero to full thrusters, and I still don’t have a clue what the truth is, although I’m leaning towards the idea that WE’S GOT ONE! 

Why do I say that?

Type into any search engine the words NASA Warp Drive and the first thing you see is NASA’s front page, proclaiming loudly that ‘they ain’t got it!’.  According to NASA’s own website, which has been updated as of July of 2016:

Is Warp Drive Real?

Ever since the sound barrier was broken, people have turned their attention to how we can break the light speed barrier.  But “Warp Drive” or any other term for faster-than-light travel still remains at the level of speculation. 

The bulk of scientific knowledge concludes that it’s impossible, especially when considering Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. There are certainly some credible concepts in scientific literature, however it’s too soon to know if they are viable.  Science fiction writers have given us many images of interstellar travel, but traveling at the speed of light is simply imaginary at present.

In the meantime, science moves forward.  And while NASA is not pursuing interstellar flight, scientists here continue to advance ion propulsion for missions to deep space and beyond using solar electric power. This form of propulsion is the fastest and most efficient to date.

There are many “absurd” theories that have become reality over the years of scientific research.  But for the near future, warp drive remains a dream.

Last Updated: July 20, 2016
Editor: NASA Administrator  [1]

Just in case you missed it, I took the liberty of highlighting the speculative nature of the imaginary Warp Drive so you will have no doubt as to their official position on this matter.

As of July 20, 2016, NASA ain’t got no Warp Drive.

whisperNever you mind the fact that it takes longer than five months to build one up from scratch.

Heck, from July 20 to November 19, that’s barely five months, and they had to do all sorts of stuff to go from ‘absurd theory’ to ‘Da Shiz Fer Real!’

Cause you know…it takes awhile to pound out them math equations on that old scientific calculator, and then it takes some serious chalk dust to draw up them math formulas on the old chalk board.  Heck, they prolly used ladders to cover them YUUUGE boards with chalk writings and equations, I bet.

And then they gotta squeeze the gubmint for the money, ’cause you know, nothing happens without money.  After they got their hands on the dough, they gotta hire drafters to draw up the designs for the hardware. And then those there designs gotta go to some manufacturing plant to produce the parts.

Of course, once the plans go into production, you gotta order the raw materials, and that ain’t cheap–a lot of them raw materials got weird names like iridium and palladium (I hear they don’t rust…although I don’t think rust is that big of a problem out there in space)  Personally, I’d use gold-plating over something non-brittle, but hard-as-hell, but that’s just me.

Then when you get your gold-plated parts back, you gotta write the software codes to get it to work.  And then you gotta QA test that thing, both software and hardware. You gotta do all sorts of stuff, and I’m pretty sure I left a bunch of things out.

girlPointing2

How they fit ALL THAT in FIVE MONTHS, I haven’t a clue, BUT THEY DID IT!

If you look back at the Google search page and skip the NASA non-event, the next listing proudly proclaims that NASA’s long-awaited EMDrive paper has finally been peer-reviewed and published.  [2]

‘Despite the fact that they’re still unsure of how it works, NASA scientists have finally confirmed that the seemingly-impossible EmDrive is legit!’, yells another headline.  [3]

Heck, we even get the name of the scientists who’ve been sweating bullets over this thing for…decades?  Dr. Harold Sunny White.  Yep, that there be his name, and that there be his Beast of Burden.

emdrive

Purdy, ain’t it?

disgusted.jpgBut wait a gosh darned minute here.  Something ain’t right.

How the hell do you get a working prototype up and running but ain’t got the foggiest notion ’bout how it works?

If you don’t know how it works, then how in heck were you even able to peer review the thing, let alone build it?

Makes no sense to me, but who the hell am I to question the gods of NASA?  I’m just a lowly Taobabe.

Next thing you know, somebody’s bound to mutter something ’bout all this being ‘alien technology’ and all.  And funny as that may sound, that would make sense, now wouldn’t it?  We can figure out how to make it work, but our math and physics ain’t quite there yet, so that’s why we can’t quite figure out how it’s done.

Well.  It’s a good thing NASA figured out all this Warp Drive stuff because they just now told us all about TRAPPIST-1 and the seven dwarves. [4]  Good timing or what?  (wink)

Heck yeah!!! Look out Universe, here we come!

Organic Alchemistry 2: Wave Genetics

surfers

(Continued from Organic Alchemistry 1: 7 Day Rule)

A wave, to my limited 3D mind, is something that comes out of the water and crashes onto shore, fueled by the energy of wind via atmospheric pressures.  It’s also something that I experience as an effect of sound, which can be startling, as sonic booms rattling windows and doors, and also as controlled acoustic levitation, lifting heavy objects.

Light is a bit trickier.  I can intellectually grasp that light is waves of photons, but the only time I really see this phenomenon is when I walk through a dark forest and light is streaming down from above.  I realize that this isn’t exactly the ‘light waves’ that science talks about, but it’s as close as I will ever get to visualizing the concept, so I’ll take it and be grateful that I have the visual acuity to be able to see this beauteous sight.

I’m not even going to get into gravitational waves at this moment because that’s a whole other ball of wax, and I’ve taken up enough space talking about non sequitur chit chat.  I want to focus on biologically-derived light waves and the effects of biophotons on human physiology.

It was right around the mid 20s and early 30s of the last century that wave genetics was first explored by a couple of Russian scientists, Drs. Gurwitsch and Lubishev, who postulated that not only does the genetics of living organisms on Earth operate at the 3rd Density material and physical level, but it also affects waves and fields on other density levels.  Genetic data, or information would then be able to transfer via electromagnetic and acoustic waves through those other density fields, back to 3rd density.

All that mumbo-jumbo up there could not really be described in its naked form to uninspired, dogmatic, rabidly religious people, so the best description that folks could come up with was Life Miracles, aka Life Magic.

Some of the more esoteric orders called it Organic Alchemistry, to sound more scientific, but let’s face it.  The term alchemy is hardly any less woo woo than magik, so I’m going to go with the term wave genetics, because that describes biophotonics better than anything I can come up with.

Back at the end of 2012, I had written up a couple of posts titled Biophotons and the Magic Wavelength, and DNA & Spontaneous Evolution.  I didn’t have much time to dig into this subject matter, but I did touch briefly upon Dr. Gariaev’s work.

Here is an excerpt from DNA & Spontaneous Evolution.

Back in 2000, two Russian scientists, Dr. Peter Gariaev and Dr. Vladimir Poponin sent a non-burning laser beam through a clutch of salamander eggs and then redirected that beam into a group of frog’s eggs and successfully transformed frog embryos to salamander embryos simply by transmitting the DNA information patterns using directed beams of photons.

The new salamanders looked and acted exactly like normal salamanders even though they originated from frog eggs.  When it came time for them to procreate, they were able to successfully mate with other regular salamanders, producing healthy offspring.

This process of light transference of DNA information from one living organism to another has to do with the utilization of the genetic material that most geneticists today call ‘non-coding DNA’.  In essence, all functions of genetic expression of an organism take up approximately 10% of DNA. The other 90% is considered by modern geneticists to be junk DNA.

But what if it’s not junk?

Dr. Peter Gariaev has always maintained that the primary focus of the wave genome theory is focused on the remaining 98% of chromosomes, which he considers as being the “…key “intellectual” structure of all cells of an organism including the brain“.  Dr. Gariaev describes these chromosomes as being the ones that “…operate on the wave, on the “ideal” (fine-field) level”. [1]

 

anime girl 12The Russian scientists were then able to reprogram the DNA codon sequences using modulated coherent laser light.  Now, heretofore, scientists could cut/paste sections of the codons and derive at the changes, but it left gaping holes and serious unintended consequences which were undesirable, to say the least.

Changing DNA via reprogramming is much more elegant and much less intrusive.  It is, for all purposes and intents, the high-tech method of gene therapy, as opposed to the much cruder invasive butchering methods done at the physical level.

From their discovered grammatical syntax of the DNA language (more on this in future postings) they were able to modulate coherent laser light and even radio waves and add semantics (meaning) to the carrier wave.  Beaming this correct resonant frequencies of DNA carrier wave to any embryo will reprogram, in vivo, the DNA in that unborn embryo.  [2]

Now, keep in mind that this technology is not really new.  Scientists have been doing this research since the 20s and 30s, so I’m not pointing out something that has been untested and unproven.  This is simply a recap of information that I am using to shore up my thoughts from the previous posting.

I will continue with that thought in my next post, Organic Alchemistry 3:  An Ancient Fusion Gene.

Organic Alchemistry 1: 7 Day Rule

girlsunsetcity

It was written in the book of Genesis that it took God seven days to create everything, from the largest to the smallest.  Also written in Sanskrit’s ancient holy book, the Rig Vega, are the seven stars, seven concentric continents, and seven streams of soma, the drink of the gods.  There are many other similar ancient sacred representations for the number 7, found throughout humankind’s religions and philosophies.

As an ever curious Taobabe, I have often wondered why the number 10 is not more sacred.  After all, we do have ten fingers and ten toes.  If I had to group something, it just makes more sense to do it in piles of tens…as opposed to seven…or twelve…

I mean, think about it.

Who in the world would have thought that a dozen things was easier and more practical as a method of sorting, as opposed to a decade things, other than extraterrestrials* who might have six fingers on each hand and think it’s easier to count in multiples of six?

And before I get raised eyebrows–yes, a decade is the equivocal word to the dozen, in order to denote a grouping of things.  A decade simply means a grouping of ten, as opposed to a grouping of any other number of things.  Just because we currently only use it to denote years does not mean it is limited to this denotation.

I know, I know.

I’m supposed to find the answers deep within, spiritually, and cosmically, not fiddle around with worldly scientific facts and mathematical constructs of the external world.

Highly spiritual people always tell me this:

“Taobabe, stop focusing on the external world and the rational mind.  The answer is within.  Focus on your inner spiritual growth and maybe…just maybe…you’ll grow into your full potential.” ~ Those who are more spiritually-endowed than me

And my answer would always be thus:

“Well, that’s all cool and dandy for you advanced folks, but I haven’t really reached your advanced-level Taoism classes yet.  I’m just a low-level Kindergarten Taoist and therefore, still allowed to play in my Kindergarten box.  So if you don’t mind, I’m going to take full advantage of all the perks and the wiggle room that are given to us low-brow Taoists and play and do some fun exploration of the rational sort.” ~ Taobabe

girlpointing3‘Cause you know me.

I don’t take anything at face value without doing some thinking and digging and more thinking about it.

And the more I think about it, the more I come to the stunning conclusion that it’s not an accident that the number seven is (one of) the sacred numbers.  In organic life, 7 is the number that skates the line between life and death.  This brings me back to the main idea of this posting.

The number 7

It is not difficult to create new life in the lab.  Add some sperm to an egg in the correct environment in a petri dish and the magic of life takes shape in the form of a zygote.  However, it only takes seven days for a human zygote, existing in a test tube, to hit the magical 7-day wall and perish.  The only way to keep this zygote alive is to implant it into a living biological womb.

In the past, scientists had been unable to keep embryos alive beyond seven days, and in fact, the recommendation has always been to implant embryos less than 7 days to ensure fetal survival rates.  Today, they have been able to extend the embryo’s life up to 13 days, by fiddling with a few things, and I will go into that as soon as possible, but let me get back to the seven day rule.

Why seven days?  And why must a living womb be provided to a zygote?  An experiment was carried out at Cornell where a mouse embryo was grown inside an artificial uterus and given everything it needed to grow.  The cells grew but the mouse was severely deform and ultimately died well before the gestational period.

This most likely has to do with the fact that biological life emits waves and developing life needs these waves to be able to develop properly.

The lack of a biological womb caused the mouse embryo to be deprived of the biological photon waves it needed from its mother, and although all the genetic blueprint was present within the embryo, without the biorhythms of its mother, it could not develop properly 

This indicated that wave genetics is just as important as the blueprint genetic material combined from the mother and father, to allow the zygote to grow into the correct being.  In one of my previous postings, I touched upon Dr. Peter Gariaev’s work on wave genetics and the biological photons that allowed life to grow in the correct manner.

Wait a sec–did I write about that?  Well, if I didn’t then I need to quickly touch upon Dr. Gariaev’s work.

Better yet, let me take the next post to describe his work in detail, as it is quite fascinating!

*Another subject for another day.
