"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

Why DNA Code, No matter How Complex, Cannot Account for Creative Thought

"How can anyone say that these overlapping codes involving hundreds of thousands of interacting factors is in any way random?" Precisely correct.

However, one needs to differentiate mere perception from higher order uniquely human thought of the type that revolutionizes technological practice. That is an order of complexity that is nowhere to be modeled by any possible binary sort of code. Why? Because such type of thinking is necessarily not fixed but uniquely coheres in a fugal manner with the ongoing development of the universal potential.

Protein Dynamics and the Riemannian Surface Function

Bernhard Riemann's vision of a multiply connected (via branchpoints) surface function is nowhere more apropos than in the so called proteome. For what we are continuously viewing time and again is that proteins themselves exhibit the characteristic of living singularities that are connected as branchpoints to a particular sheaf of a functional surface upon which they interact with a manifold of other proteins in a well ordered fashion, if the organism is healthy.

Likewise, that same protein may interact at times upon a totally distinct surface with other groups of proteins to perform another biological function. Thus assorted biophysical functional spaces are multiply connected in one overarching organismal composition.

Riemann's amazingly prescient method is yet to be adopted for biophysical research, yet it is certain that the sheer weight of evidence will eventually militate in its favor.

The Aging of Proteins and Subsumed Hierarchies of Monads

Recent research on the life cycle of proteins has some remarkable implications that reinforce the power of the epistemological method of Nicholas of Cusa and his heir, Gottfried Leibniz. This brings the issue of the human species' potential for immortality out of the realm of mere assertion.

Biological substance at the simplest level of proteins itself exhibits a highly controlled life and death cycle that is necessary for elementary organisms to survive. Thus the very necessity of the individual organism in a subsuming life and death cycle for its larger species nature to survive. This sort of movement from lower to higher life forms is not merely a sort of abstract classification that the purveyors of "information theory" mischaracterize as "Platonic" abstraction. Rather it is a physical certainty.

Further, it is undeniable that the uniquely distinguishing mark of humanity that sets it apart from all other known life forms is our ability to conquer and surpass the limits of the merely biological. All other species come and go, completely unable to determine their survival by changing the functioning of their fixed nature. (Only hysterical ideologues that truly hate humanity can deny this.)

The conception of this grand and universal hierarchical composition must become the foundation of all that deserves the name of science and art.

The Quest for a Theory of Everything is for Naught

“Everything — irrational numbers, along with particle interactions and the correlations between stars — ultimately arises from possible combinatorial arrangements of whole numbers: 1, 2, 3 and so on. They exist, he said, and so must everything else.”

This quote from Arkani-Hamed gets at the fundamental ontological flaw underlying the rationale of every attempt at a “theory of everything.” The evolution of life forms that capture and use energy ever more efficiently would not be possible in such a dead mathematical schema. Furthermore, human creative cognition that makes advances in technology would be entirely impossible.

The Shameful Truth About Theodore Roosevelt's Anglophilia

Thank you for this essay. You have accurately outlined some of the noxious beliefs of Theodore Roosevelt. It should also be noted that he was also a lifelong fervent admirer of the Confederate cause of his uncle, Confederate Admiral James Dunwoody Bulloch. Further relevant is the fact that this uncle happened to be the chief foreign agent of the Confederacy in England. Bulloch is believed to have financed the plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln by secretly funneling funds from London through Canada to the circle of John Wilkes Booth! Roosevelt also promoted Charles Bonaparte to Attorney General, the openly pro lynch mob great nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Bonaparte family through Napaoleon III was also militarily allied to the Confederacy via his puppet regime of Maximilian in Mexico. It is highly relevant that this same Charles Bonaparte created the Bureau of Investigation which would become the FBI used by J. Edgar Hoover to undermine the civil rights movement. 

Theodore Roosevelt was passionately attached to British Empire "white man's burden" style of imperialism, an Anglophile through and through. His hideous staged "big game hunting" massacres are part and parcel of that mindset. He should not be honored in the least. Mt. Rushmore was monumentally defaced by the inclusion of the portrait of "Teddy Roosevelt."  The sort of sanitized pabulum that views Theodore Roosevelt as a hero of "progressivism" is a shameful ruse that needs to be vigorously and mercilessly refuted at every occasion. 

Bully. Indeed.

Water: Resilient and Singular Basis of Life

Recent research from the Max Planck Institute indicates yet another unique property of water. It violates the supposed axiomatic law of random quantum fluctuations. It follows that the very same fluid that is the essential platform for fostering life would precisely exhibit this sort of molecular memory. The great universal experiment that is ever being created anew must perforce have embedded within its very substance a potentiality to develop continuously toward ever more ordered and complex domains.

Human consciousness itself is proof of this, regardless of whether or not there be those reductionists that would seek to deny or repudiate such evolving self perfectibility.

The lifetime of local water structures is probed using ultrafast laser pulses.

Whence the Big Bang? Or A Tale of Stuff and Nonsense.

In the beginning there was nothing. And ever and anon we have those we call astronomers attempting to tell a story of how physical "stuff" we see out there came from naught. But even more perplexing is how their own minds were created that tell these stories of creation from time immemorial. Perhaps consciousness is a sort of cosmic background that needs to be accounted for in this narrative, otherwise they are missing the most important "stuff" of all.
