April 11, 2018 K: Kepler

September 11, 2018 K: Kepler First we’ll look at Johannes Kepler, most of his work done in the early sixteen hundreds, and then we’ll look at the men who influenced him. Kepler was born into a world where astronomy and astrology hadn’t yet divided into science and the paranormal, respectively. Look up in the night …

April 10, 2018 J: Jupiter and Panspermia

September 10, 2018 J: Jupiter and Panspermia (Where did all our chromosomes come from?)  One of the factors of the Drake Equation that can suggest how ubiquitous life is in our universe is the chance of a solar system including Earth-like planets. We see that M class stars that are smaller and generate less energy than …

April 9, 2018: I is for Incoming

April 9, 2018 I: Incoming (Filtering out the possibilities). How in a nonhuman-centered way can we look at the formative process of our universe that brought us into being? To answer the above question and define what I mean by Incoming, I need to revisit certain ideas gleaned from my two-dimensional expanding droplet experiment. The …

April 8, 2018 H: Human-Centered Thinking

April 8, 2018 H: Human-Centered Thinking (How it makes all our hard-won solutions incredible fails).  We know what human thought is—because that’s what us humans do—we think. We know what thought itself is, or, at least, I think we do. Most of us believe that other mammals think in a somewhat rudimentary way. We know that all living …

April 5, 2018 E: Experimental Space

April 5.2018 E: Experimental Space (WHAT IS vs WHAT IS BEHIND WHAT IS) We know our expanding droplet in two dimensions may be analogous to how the universe expands. Starting with random sine wave perturbations on a perfectly circular expanding universe/droplet (a buckling of the relationship boundary, so it is no longer circular, wave crests …

April 4, 2018 D: Drake Equation

April 4, 2018 D:  Drake Equation (Chance of meeting up with aliens). What we know up until this point: Our published experiment of a two-dimensional fluid-fluid relational boundary has been proven both in the laboratory and mathematically through The General Energy Equation for normal space and time. The experiment is an analog of other behaviors …

April 3, 2018: C: Conscious Awareness

April 3, 2018 C: Conscious Awareness (From simple experience with little memory, to awareness, to long duration self-awareness).   On April 1, we discussed how our published experiment of a two-dimensional, expanding droplet could be looked at like an analog of experiments (in the cosmos) that might be too difficult to perform in laboratories on …

April 2, 2018 B: Boundary

April 2, 2018 B: Boundary (helps us to understand how our universe comes into being through change): It is possible to understand our universe through the realization that nothing exists without change, and the least description of change is a boundary.     A boundary can be a discrete line across which something happens. In my …
