Very very rarely do I devote most of the blog to allowing someone else just to speak, but I found this so provocative, so intriguing, from so many levels, that I just have to share it, without much commentary, for it speaks for itself. (My thanks to my web developer Daniel DiGriz for bringing it to my attention).
My interest in this video – which I urge you to watch – is threefold. Twelve years ago I lost my youngest sister Jeanie to a malignant glioblastoma, or rather, to a brain hemorrhage caused by the treatment which she took – a radical treatment involving a platinum injection via a catheter directly into the tumor. So I have an interest, a personal one, in cancer. I am sure all of us do.
At the second level, I have been toying with an idea for almost three decades now, that I call “analogical calculus,” a kind of formally explicit way in which to symbolize analogical thought, and of course, the essence of analogy is context, the ability of a form or proposition to gain information from, i.e., to communicate with, its context in a kind of feedback loop. In dealing with this conception, I discovered – and I won’t go into the complicated reasons why – that there were direct, and significant, implications of this idea for actual physical reality; it was a kind of systems kinetics of contexts. As you will see when you view this remarkable and thought-provoking video with Mina Bissell, Ph.D., context is everything.
Finally, at the physics level, I have been fascinated with the idea of a kind of quantum of rotation in a cellular structure of space, and that DNA is a natural transducer of it. For all these reasons, and, I hope some of your own, that you will enjoy this video.
A final note, Dr. Bissell is an Iranian-American….
See you on the flip side…
