NEW TECHNIQUE FOR MOLECULAR IMAGING

As most of you are aware, I've been blogging a great deal lately about the prospects that 3-D printing seems to imply, among them, that it represents the first halting steps in the technology tree towards what can only be called "teleportation," the idea of stepping into a "phone booth" here, and stepping out in a phone booth in Calcutta or Johannesburg in a matter of seconds.  Of course, we're a long way from that, and as I've been trying to point out, there are some crucial steps and "proofs of concept" that need to be taken in the technology tree before any of that becomes reality, the three most crucial - it would seem to me - being (1) the ability to scan any object down to a molecular or even atomic level, then break it apart and reassemble it somewhere else, atom by atom as it were. This would require (2) a massive computing and data processing capability, one that would have to come from practical quantum computing technologies. Finally, it would require (3) an expansion of the principle of entanglement to orders of magnitude we can only imagine. Indeed, it may eventually prove to be unfeasible to do so.

For the moment, it would appear that the scanning technologies are those within the most practical reach, and that efforts to expand current capabilities are definitely underway. For example, consider this bit of news from Rice University shared with me by a regular here, Ms. P.H.:

Rice technique expands options for molecular imaging

Consider the meat of this new technique and the implications:

"The Rice technique, dubbed 'multiple-dimensional vibrational spectroscopy,' is able to capture the conformation of small molecules — for starters — with great accuracy, Zheng said. The spectrometer reads only intramolecular interactions among vibrations and ignores interactions between molecules, he said.

“'The atoms in every molecule are always vibrating, and each bond between atoms vibrates at a certain frequency, and in a certain direction,' he said. 'We found that if we can measure the direction of one vibration and then another, then we can know the angle between these two vibrations – and therefore the angle between the bonds.'

"He said the researchers begin with the chemical formula and already know, through Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, how many vibrational frequencies are contained in a given molecule. 'Then we measure each vibrational mode, one by one. Once we get all the cross-angles, we can translate this to a model,' he said.

"For now, as a proof of concept, Zheng and his team analyze molecules for which the structure is already known. Over time, the technique should be able to analyze much larger molecules, like viruses that contain thousands or tens of thousands of atoms, he said."

Note also that the article makes it clear that the technique can be applied to various types of inorganic material. It may seem a small step, but it is an important one, for it gives a much more exact approximation of the molecular structure, and the article implies that it is conceivable that it could eventually be expanded to inter-molecular structures.  Expand the capability to the ability to "scan" organic compounds or even DNA itself by measuring such tiny vibrations, and the scanning capability takes yet another significant step towards what would be needed for teleportation capability.

Obviously, we're still a very long way off from that. But what has intrigued me over the past few weeks, as I have watched and compared these stories, is the intuition that such research is being driven by hidden hands for precisely that purpose. A variety of corporations and universities are involved in this research, and I strongly suspect that by digging and scratching long enough, one might find grant-trails leading back to such entities as DARPA, the Jason group, and so on. Slowly, steadily, quietly, they appear to be researching all the steps in the technology tree to that capability.

See you on the flip side.

  1. A “vibration” is a patterned perturbation that interacts with other perturbations with interference patterns that obey certain laws.

  2. Yes closer to teleportation. But I’d posit that fully developed Nemes microscope gear does a far better job of imaging molecules atoms and and chemical bonds. And those bonds hide a good bit more secrets than we’re told.

  3. It strikes me that teleportation might be a Rube Goldberg way of transporting people and goods around. So what are these people really up to and is this a cover under which it’s a research smoke screen for something else. By the way there is a story on http://www.controversalfiles.net today that HAARP today is not the secret program for weather control but could it be being used as a smoke screen for the real weather control program hiding in plain sight. What else do all those microwave towers do besides transmitting cell phone and Wi-Fi signals.

  4. So what is teleportation, well you tear something apart, map it, then send it half way around the world, reconstitute it, open the doors of the elevator, and bingo you have arrived.

    Considering the materia prima, the one thing that everything on this planet has, then all this is, is another form of Alchemy.

    Beam me up Scotty et al.

  5. “’The atoms in every molecule are always vibrating, and each bond between atoms vibrates at a certain frequency, and in a certain direction,’ he said. ‘We found that if we can measure the direction of one vibration and then another, then we can know the angle between these two vibrations – and therefore the angle between the bonds.’

    There is that Damned Vibrations thing again. You know the stuff they keep claiming doesn’t work.

  6. Given, at least in my hypothesis, that the macro-universe, is the same construct as the micro/nano/bosun/dark matter/energy -verse… one need only look at the macro, to learn how everything works. LHC, etc. all a waste of time and money and talent, if their agenda is to look nano and beyond.
    Therein is the real question: “What is the real agenda with the LHC, and other particle accelerators around the planet?” Berkeley’s Advanced Light Source Synchrotron being but one example.
    Don’t get me started!!

    1. Regarding Vishnu and I quote: “The all-pervading essence of all beings, the master of—and beyond—the past, present and future, the creator and destroyer of all existences, one who supports, preserves, sustains and governs the universe and originates and develops all elements within”

      Not being a “follower” of the Hindu slant on things…I pose this question: Why is there a statue of Vishnu at the main entrance to the LHC, Geneva?

      Dr. Oppenheimer framed this god in terms of being “The Destroyer”. He was a follower………
      He worked at the Berkeley “Rad Lab”, now home of the cited Synchrotron.
      Another nugget for you: Same place tied to the Human Genome Lab, over the Berkeley hills, in Walnut Creek, CA. Each funded by the Dept. of Energy.
      Nefarious indeed.

    A couple of thoughts:
    There seems to be room in the article for some speculation regarding the Very Sinister; specifically, regarding this segment:

    “’The atoms in every molecule are always vibrating, and each bond between atoms vibrates at a certain frequency, and in a certain direction,’ he said. ‘We found that if we can measure the direction of one vibration and then another, then we can know the angle between these two vibrations – and therefore the angle between the bonds.’”

    Remove the context of molecular imaging technologies. Now, is it possible then that what we have here is the initial steps being taken toward the advancement of the “catch-up?” We all know that the government—black government operations; secret space program; DARPA; etc.—is said to be in secret 30-40 years ahead in regards to science and technology. If that is true, that the hidden government’s black R&D splinter cell, whether at DARPA, HARP, Los Alamos, or Area 51 (among others), has long since held these capabilities? That remains to be seen; however, the oracular folks at Rice seem to have been allowed some of the information. I am not saying Rice has any nefarious motives, but it is possible that they are unknowingly part of some type of nefarious scheme designed to allow the public to slowly acquire such technologies. Perhaps the “splinter cell” has reached a tipping point of their own in which they now need controlled public sector help? Regardless, the main implication in this article that I see is the potential for a WMD! Think about Dr. Farrell’s The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics and Ancient Texts. In that book, Dr Farrell asserts that it is possible that the “Very Ancient High Civilization” had a “paleoancient” physics that allowed for the Great Pyramid to be type of planet killing “Death Star” type of weapon. He also used the ancient Sumerian and Babylonian stories regarding Nergal, Tiamat, etc. to serve as basis and foundations for the Great Pyramid as a WMD. The physics, as I recall, that was speculated to have existed, used a type of harmonic oscillating scalar wave that could “stir the insides” of Tiamat the planet. However, as I recall, in order for this to be possible it was speculated that the user of said technology and physics had to have a very exact and specific knowledge of the various masses in correlation to their exact positions in space or the medium. So, with that in mind how hard is it to make the jump from those speculations of physics and technology back toward the article referenced in this current blog? If the folks at Rice are on the cusp of being able to do what they say they are doing then the hidden government’s splinter cell group has been doing it for far longer, right? The implications then from a weapons standpoint are clear. Think DARPA, HARP, and the association of mind-control and remote torture. With that borne in mind there has to be included in this speculation that the government either has or is working on attaining the ability to “stir the insides” of the “Tiamat” within us all. What a weapon! Point, target, and stir and what to you get? Imploded humans! Just a thought.

  8. Since every thing is fundamentally a vibration the new technology is not an adjunct – it is the ultimate drilling down that makes the most sense in assessing what physical interactions really are. Cymatics at this level will be astonishingly fruitful and give us visual analogies to complex reactions that will engender many breakthroughs in science.

  9. What seems to be missing (at least in what has emerged so far) is the link between consciousness and technology – direct and not using implants etc. Might this not be a key for the teleportation of conscious beings (e.g. humans)? That is, if we are convinced that the consciousness-factor is more than an array of atoms and molecules…

    1. I think researchers like Rupert Sheldrake have already began that argument and done it very convincingly. Granted there is much more to be done in that area. But heck he got banned from the TedX talks for propagating pseudo-science.

      1. That is funny and ironic re: Sheldrake…. as TedX is in my estimation, propaganda for the dark underbelly folks beneath the broader scientific community. Science/alchemy/occult all much the same stew in the black caldron.
