"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

Torsion of DNA and Solitons

The recent successful measurement of DNA supercoiling torsion should advance the hypothesis for biophysical solitons. The condition of living systems obtaining a condition of semi permanence within an unstable and fluctuating energetic landscape is remarkably analogous to the many types and phases of inorganic solitonic behaviors. The trick is to uncover and utilize such self organizing traits for technological advancement. For instance, it was also announced earlier this week that the vortical property of optical filaments has led to a breakthrough in fiber optic bandwidth. The fact that the form the lasers involved in this discovery takes are toroidal should strike long time readers of this blog as quite lawful.
