The warning to abandon all axioms is once more reinforced by this recent discovery. "The galaxy, named WISE J224607.57-052635.0, is erupting with light equal to more than 300 trillion suns." But it is invisible to human perception because it is so obscured by dust that the light is only registered in the infrared portion of the spectrum.
Thus if we were to attempt to deduce from a "given" postulate this galaxy's existence, we would forever be in the dark. So much for Euclid and his acolytes like the benighted imperialist John Dee. Augustine's "corollary" to Paul's poetic declaration that we see as through a glass darkly must be remembered here: the Creator is not a clock winder or dead letter. The universal ongoing evolutionary potential is necessarily hidden from humanity's purview even as we co-evolve in a great fugue of discovery.
Beauty is in the irony of development, not in the object per se. Truth is not a "thing in itself." In the sempiternal realm above time we will truly see face to face. And that is what it is to be human.
This artist's concept depicts the current record holder for the most luminous galaxy in the universe. The galaxy, named WISE J224607.57-052635.0, is erupting with light equal to more than 300 trillion suns. It was discovered by NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE. The galaxy is smaller than the Milky Way, yet puts out 10,000 times more energy. (Source: NASA)

"Natural selection" is a execrably bestial and racialist dogma based upon white colored skin's suitability for less sunny climates. This is why the subtitle of Darwin's doctrine of evolution is "the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life." The true nature of humanity's evolution is our species' unique and evolving power over the energetic forces of nature, starting with our control of fire. Today, we have control of nuclear fission, soon, if we don't outlaw scientific progress altogether, we will have control over thermonuclear fusion, and next in that sequence will be matter/anti-matter reactions. After that we can only speculate. Thus there is a series of provable non-linear quantum leaps in our species' potential to use ever more powerful sources of energy to expand our well being into the limitless future. You won't find this uniquely human quality in any genetic mechanism.

This excellent research is further evidence of a universal necessity of metastable chiral organization of living systems. The biophysical domain exhibits a scale free form of helical wave propagation. If this is disrupted life attenuates and fails. The chromatin form is merely a sort of slice or snapshot of that organizational process as it is made concrete in a singular cell or what Leibniz called a monad.
