Brain vs Universe

The Universe is flat?

My apartment has relatively high ceilings because it's an old building. The sunlight comes sideways through my windows. If I don't leave my apartment, the world might appear like a big pancake (ie, flat). It's an optical illusion. Several centuries ago, sailors assumed Earth was flat as they didn't experience curves. The latest scientific assumption is that the...

Brain-Signal Proteins Evolved Before Animals Did (Quanta)

Introduction LO: This is another piece of evidence of the Blueprint in Life, Nature and in the Universe. If my assertion holds then it's nearly impossible that we are "alone" in the Universe. Apparently, the brain has been looking, throughout Evolution, for the most suitable candidate. This also implies that the brain will not stop looking for an even better suited...

Note: markings in quote by LO. I paused the movie and made a note. I wondered: is this what life is all about? There is a difference between being needed, wanted or believed in. I have a friend,...

“I Have to Admit, I Have a Very Low Opinion of Human Beings”

A 2020 Science alert mentions a 2020 study published in the Frontiers of Physics mapping the "odd structural similarities between the human brain and the Universe". This is the most spectacular example of a recent concept that I call macro vs micro. To some extent, we may be living in a Droste-effect (eg, my 2021 blog). Recently, a strange thought entered my mind:...

Drivers of Change: a 2022 update

Several of my blogs have mentioned the drivers of Change, which govern everything around us. Late April 2018, I published my initial blog Drivers of Change, which included a rather complex diagram. I suppose I was still arranging my thoughts. Today, I present a much simpler diagram. Perhaps, the single most important item in my diagram is the Blueprint of our...

Could the blueprint for life have been generated in asteroids? (Phys)

Introduction by LO: The origin of Life is a mystery despite millennia of human knowledge. This article gives a fresh perspective. Astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle (1915-2001) did not believe in the Big Bang although inventing this term on BBC radio himself. He believed in a hypothesis called panspermia (eg, my blogs) as the origin of Life on Earth. Panspermia is the...
