"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

Hearing Sound: The Case of Whale Bones and Elephant Feet: or Why the Human Mind is not Confined to Mere Sense Certainty

Viewing sound as a form of energy propagation that is among the elements transformed for animals' survival, it is lawful that there might be a coincidence of capture of sound waves for diverse species with similar throughput and metabolism. So we find a functional connection between whales and elephants that confirms a principle of ordering in the biosphere of our planet. Thus, regarded from that standpoint, we have a one to one mapping in the functionally vectored phase space of sound.

Our knowledge of such a principle is not garnered through our own sensory apparatus, but instead through application of a distinct and unique ability of humanity to capture and transform an analogous wave-like transmission of creative thought from generation to generation. This type of progress characterizes the scientific method. As Petr Krisl, one of the researchers on whale hearing, pointedly stated: "There is a blueprint for multiple species and it is useful to compare across species to gain insight."

The Struggle to Survive and Energy Throughput of Species

The differentiation of species is characterized overall by the energetic means through which they are perpetuated. If a global shift in conditions vitiates the predominate form of energy capture and utilization of a species or group of species, then that type of life form is supplanted so long as it is possible for new species to achieve a harmonic metastability.

The function of mitochondrial ATP synthase is a universal limiting factor for such energy reduction across all biological domains. It is analogous to a constant for the inorganic such as the speed of light or fine structure. The ATP enzymatic development of energy reduction in living monads represents a singularity which separates the organic from the  inorganic. It represents a qualitatively superior and distinct organizing principle comparable metaphorically to Cantor's treatment of transfinite infinities.

The only continuation in this higher order of energetic speciation that we know of up to now, is the strictly unique human development to further evolve by the acquisition of the knowledge to control fire for cooking food. It is the only way the human brain's relative enlargement over other primates were possible. This is what differentiates our species uniquely from all less evolved life. However, it does not end there. Given the shift in conditions wrought by the advent of such Promethean evolution, the need to acquire new technological means to further improve the conditions of human health and lifespan requires a continuous non-linear improvement in control over energy throughput via more condensed forms.

To deny all this, as do the fanatic proponents of the back to nature dogmatists, is to deny our unique humanity. This is the only fundamental conflict that operates as a driving motif in the history of mankind. The oligarchical worldview is a desperate mandate to put the genie back in the bottle and to deny that there is a higher universal ordering purpose for humanity. Thus the mythical figure of Zeus seeks to perpetually enchain and punish the quality of mind that Prometheus represents. Any nation or group that seeks to continue the inescapable development of energy must be defeated by such bestial logic. Thus today as China leads in an effort to mine Helium 3 from the moon for the heretofore most energy dense form of controlled nuclear fusion, the inheritors of the bestial outlook must seek and destroy that very development.

Beethoven's Ninth and Remembering the Future

This past week I had the inestimable pleasure to attend a performance of the composer's ultimate symphonic gift. The last symphony I experienced had left me with an urge to identify the process that Beethoven's compositions evolved that draws in the listener to experience a delight in harnessing the creative faculty. It especially is striking in the passage from one movement to the next. Near the end of the first movement of the ninth there is a passage that has a sostenuto underlain with a counterpoint evoking the grand opus of masterworks of J.S. Bach. But more than this, this signals a sort of musical memory for the future development yet to come.

If one's mindset is that events just chaotically happen and that therefore humanity can only hang on as hapless spectators at some incomprehensible orgy of a modern day Roman circus, then all that our ever loving purblind elite does for their own good does make sense. But that road leads to the demise of love for all beauty that rightly befits humanity and the prospect that none will take up the open challenge that Ludwig van Beethoven has left for remembering the beauty of the inchoate future.
