PHYSICS, EVOLUTION, AND LIFE

Here's an interesting article that many of you sent to me (and as always, my gratitude to all of you sending so many articles). This is an important one because it indicates how dramatically cosmological physics and the life sciences are converging, and how eventually, both are butting up against some significant metaphysical questions, which will be the subject of today's "high octane speculation." Here's the article:

This Physicist Has A Groundbreaking Idea About Why Life Exists

Notwithstanding the current reservations among some scientists about Mr. England's ideas, it's worth point out the central characteristic:

"At the heart of England’s idea is the second law of thermodynamics, also known as the law of increasing entropy or the “arrow of time.” Hot things cool down, gas diffuses through air, eggs scramble but never spontaneously unscramble; in short, energy tends to disperse or spread out as time progresses. Entropy is a measure of this tendency, quantifying how dispersed the energy is among the particles in a system, and how diffuse those particles are throughout space. It increases as a simple matter of probability: There are more ways for energy to be spread out than for it to be concentrated.

...
"Life does not violate the second law of thermodynamics, but until recently, physicists were unable to use thermodynamics to explain why it should arise in the first place. In Schrödinger’s day, they could solve the equations of thermodynamics only for closed systems in equilibrium. In the 1960s, the Belgian physicist Ilya Prigogine made progress on predicting the behavior of open systems weakly driven by external energy sources (for which he won the 1977 Nobel Prize in chemistry). But the behavior of systems that are far from equilibrium, which are connected to the outside environment and strongly driven by external sources of energy, could not be predicted."
This is the fundamental problem, for if one thinks about it a bit, the question can be extended from life to the universe in general, for its very existence would seem to be, under the conditions outlined in these two paragraphs, testimony of a fundamental far-from-equilibrium state shared by all existence, leaving the question of how all of this "self-organized" into such a state. And that means that at the cosmological scale, the universe is an open, rather than a closed, system.
So here comes high octane speculation number one:
For those paying attention, this raises some rather uncomfortable metaphysical questions, both for philosophers and theologians on the one side, and for scientists on the other. For the latter, the challenge will be to find "that one equation" that would explain why such a state of existence arises in the first place; the challenge, in other words, is to find a formally explicit way to express a fundamentally metaphysical concern. Should scientists find or invent such a language (topology comes about as close as anything else, but with significant reservations), then the flip side of this discovery would be that it would then be applicable as formal expressions or notations within philosophical metaphysics, and, for that matter,conceivably within theology in the formal dogmatic or systematic sense. Theologians might find themselves having to deal not with essences, operations, and hypostases, but with interiors, regions, functions, and surfaces or higher and lower order derivatives. The implication of these trends would seem to be that they are acid drips on all current systems of metaphysical classification, for how would one classify such things, if they were true? Is it pantheism? Atheism? Theism? Monism? Panentheism? Monotheism? Polytheism? Careful consideration of the implications would seem to indicate that aspects of all types of classical metaphysical taxonomies are in play. In my various books, I have entertained precisely this type of speculation with what I have called "the topological metaphor of the medium," by pointing out that certain classical metaphysical systems are capable of a kind of formal mathematical expression.
There's something else going on(and here comes high octane speculation number two), if you've been following biophysics lately, and that is that life processes themselves seem to rely on various phenomena of quantum mechanics to process all this energy, using quantum tunneling and quantum coherence, and some even speculate that complex living organisms might also use the phenomenon of entanglement - with all of its non-locality ramifications - in order to hold themselves together. For the ancients, the universe was not a mechanism or a machine, but an organism. And this seems to be the ultimate implication of Mr. England's and others' work. So with that in mind, might one pose the question: if all the above considerations should eventually prove to be true, then does life itself somehow transduce or interact with the quantum vacuum flux - or to use other words, the fabric of space-time, or to use the nineteenth century term, the aether lumeniferous, or even more medieval terms, the materia prima or physical medium or substrate - directly? Are we looking in effect at a huge cosmic hologram of Life?
Obviously, we're a long way off from any sort of scientific confirmation - or for that matter, refutation - of such questions and "high octane speculations," but it's interesting to ponder the implications of where it seems to be currently headed.
See you on the flip side...

  1. Our cosmos is outstanding! I totally appreciate the explanation of energy form and or workings in our universe.

  2. I often wonder if maybe our universe, as an organism, is autistic and that is why we have so much difficulty understanding it. Maybe this is also why the other universes seem to steer clear of ours and don’t make their presence known– the social behavior of our universe causes the other universes to shun us. Sometimes, when I am sitting in the park feeding the pigeons and the squirrels, I ask myself: which one of you little fellas is autistic? You breath the same air as us. You drink the same water. Are only cats and dogs potentially autistic because they get vaccines? What would an autistic cat act like? And when I look at those little creatures scurrying around my feet waiting for their next kernel of GMO corn, I wonder if their brains are split in two like ours, forcing them to miss out on the oneness of creation and see only duality at every turn? Could the universe have a split brain as well? Is it possible our dual hemispheric brain created the topological metaphor out of a necessity to make sense of the world around us? Is autism the key to understanding the workings of the universe? Is this why our elites have subjected so many of us to toxins which are believed to induce autism? Do they believe only an autistic person can understand our autistic universe and thereby unlock its mystery?

    I don’t claim to to know what Einstein’s theory of Relativity is. (In fact, when it comes to physics, I generally have no idea what Dr. Farrell is even talking about. I just started reading the Giza books to impress an Egyptian waitress at my local cafe). I do suspect that there are no fundamental laws in our universe. Every entity is self-creating and goes in any direction it so pleases once it learns how. Therefore, the laws of the universe are relative to the particular act of creation. Call it a Theory of Relativeness. I distinctly remember after an “acid drip” in college defying gravity and walking up the side of a building.

    1. “Is autism the key to understanding the workings of the universe? Is this why our elites have subjected so many of us to toxins which are believed to induce autism?”

      As George Carlin recognized, the elites just want “obedient workers.” Rendering people autistic through vaccinations serves the same end.

      The key to understanding the universe lies in eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. This is why the elites are now demonizing pb&j as a symbol of white oppression, and why half the kids out there today have been given peanut allergies through vaccinations.

      Look for Skippy to be rated high as a controlled substance. Expect to go through a dealer on a street corner in order to get your fix (with all the profits going to the elites, of course).

      1. Frankie Calcutta

        Delurking,

        I suspected something like that as well with the peanut butter. I’m glad I am not the only “lone nut.” Nuts as the the great elixir right before our eyes? Possibly even the antidote to most toxins and even mind control? Considering a single nut can give birth to a sixty foot tree, it would make perfect sense. Imagine the power locked inside these hard seeds? It explains why squirrels and so many in the animal kingdom crave them and even risk crossing busy highways with nuts stuffed in their jowls. I always suspected, from my own observations, that squirrels and chipmunks were impervious to mind control.

  3. White powder gold aka “ormes” is a value neutral manifesting tool – manifesting evil or immoral things under its enhancing influence will hasten the implosion of the soul.

    1. The soul implodes as in the person will be a soulless catatonic body ( could they then be possessed?) or as in they will die? I’ve been researching ormes quite a bit and am interested in the healing properties of the various combinations. I don’t think I could handle pure white gold ormes at this point in my life. Emlong are you aware of any legitimate places on the net that will custom make the substance. Is ascension alchemy still in operation? If this isn’t a question that can be answered on the site my email is flyhigh1013@gmail

    as far as the damage done to dna I wouldn’t say it is permanent. The whole 25,000 year cycle, I tend to believe our solar system is passing through an area of the universe previously occupied by something massive ie a black hole or large sun. The effect of said massive object left a drag on the aether leaving behind an enhanced spin and resonance in the 4space . Our planet is now passing through this area, which is also in line with the galactic plane in 3 space. The leftover effect on the aether in 4space is now influencing us in 3space possibly resulting in changes in our DNA. Maybe placing us in sync with the higher order whatever that created us. Or maybe we’re passing through an area of 4space that was previously occupied. I’m of the opinion that the Tower of Babel moment may be a self limiting factor cosmically placed on us by the universe and/or surpreme being programmer. Our DNA starts to change turning us into something like x-men, but if we haven’t mastered the correct spiritual lessons we’ll destroy ourselves without the need of et intervention. Because let’s face it, if you’re an et would you want the human race to join you up there? I just burned so I’m not sure if I’m using the correct terms or language for the idea I’m trying to articulate but y’all will know what I mean.

    1. Possibly x-men with the ormus like power to strongly manifest thoughts into reality. If the entire human race could more directly manifest reality via thought the world wouldn’t fair so well. Come to think of it, if all the elite are eating all the gold in ormus form no wonder our planet is such a cruel place. The PTB are quite the opposite of enlightened imo

  5. …the ‘hologram’ universe. Hasn’t Icke been claiming that humans live in a projected world where gravity and vibrating strings are the principles for a number of years now? I know his theories can be way out there, but he does seem to have an unnerving knack of getting his ideas out there well ahead of the game.

  6. There is something going on here with us, the universe and human consciousness that our human brain cannot comprehend or understand. I mean just look at the universe, I mean look at it. The Universe and it’s formation is the work of a superior mind, and don’t forget to achieve the topological metaphor, you have to first “imagine it”.
    As far as humans are concerned, our space cousins saw to it that we were, once created, “will have spirit” (quoting Enki here).
    So these scientists will never understand the universe, because, they go to main stream universities and are taught never to go near the esoteric or metaphysical, BUT, that’s were the answers are.

  7. Another question would be, how such templates and instructions for existence or creation came to be. Is there a programmer? Or an encoder? All of this could not be if it’s not intelligent..
    Intelligent energy?
    It’s either 1 or 0

    1. the linked article’s title, doesn’t answer the WHY part. In the deepest part of our minds (yes, it’s probably the subconscious) I think we know the answer. if only we remove this affliction with materialism, it largely stems from pride ( what was that first sin?). there’s that quote from F.H. work that haunts me, “the real universe is always one step beyond logic”

  8. Stuart Harlan Doblin

    “And that means that at the cosmological scale, the universe is an open, rather than a closed, system.”

    The Salient Issue : IS : ‘Whether This Universe : IS : “Bounded or NOT”? NOT, whether it is : ‘closed’ or “open”:.

    And most certainly, this Universe IS Bounded by Energy or God.

    The terms : ‘open or close’ are non-Real possibilities. Only one can be Real at once : ‘Zero or One’ : ‘Open or Close’; however, a “Bounded Universe” is both: (1) open to some and closed to sodom and (2) closed to some and open to sodom.

    A Bounded Universe ‘Keeps it Real for All Participants’!

    An open or Closed Universe us Full of Non-Sense!

  9. http://www.thenewatlantis.com/publications/evolution-and-the-illusion-of-randomness

    Bear in mind that we’ve been looking at the one aspect of organismal functioning — the mutational aspect — where we are assured most confidently that “blind chance,” or randomness, becomes visible within the evolutionary process. Certainly from the organism’s side we see nothing to suggest any fundamental role for randomness
    “But even leaving aside all the contextually coherent revision and all the meaning-making that bends the apparently random to the organism’s own purposes, we find that strictly low-level analyses show mutations to be nonrandom. The point isn’t disputed by anyone, and current research aimed at elucidating all the factors conducive to genomic change is steadily expanding our field of view, with huge implications for evolutionary theory.”

  10. Another blow to the clockwork mechanistic universe and proof that it is aware. It is biologically conscience like the philosophy of the indigenous people of the World has always maintained. The universe is alive and we are not unique and alone in this cosmos but share with other sentient beings and living creatures grow up white people.

  11. Regarding thermodynamics, I suggest checking into the work of Bernard R. Bligh (who worked in chemical engineering and low temp physics).

    He claims that “the an analogy that an expanding Universe can be compared with an expanding cylinder and piston is demonstrably false,”
    and that cosmologists mis-apply equations relating to the laws of thermodynamics. This is fascinating stuff.

    His website is here:

    http://web.onetel.net.uk/~brbligh/

    There is little data on this page: you need to buy his book from him personally unfortunately (he lives in the UK). His book is listed on Amazon for $141 right now (must be a used copy).

    He has a good article that appears in the book GRAVITATION, ELECTROMAGNETISM AND COSMOLOGY edited by Rudnicki:

    http://www.amazon.com/Gravitation-Electromagnetism-Cosmology-Toward-Synthesis/dp/0968368964/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1418573729&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=gravitationi%2C+electromagnetism+and+cosmology

  12. This England guy is probably right, but Wilhelm Reich (amongst others) already demonstrated this in a lab decades ago.

    And what England doesn’t seem to apprehend is that there’s healthy light (atmospheres including a substrate) and not so healthy substrates–and much conventional biology and physics is dedicated to denying any difference.

    If England takes this theory to anything like a logical conclusion he is unlikely to have a permanent job at MIT.

    Unless, this is a round about controlled release of a newly acceptable philosophy.

  13. jedi,

    There’s nothing really to stop the creation of a 747 exnihil, assuming the proposition that evolution is random is abandoned. And the repeated experiments of pleomorphism certainly say that evolution is NOT random.

    Seeing only slaves and masters is very limited conception of the totality of reality–it’s similar to Darwin’s insistence upon random evolution. 2/3s does not equal 3/5s, and far more importantly, regular waves of any type require that time run consistently.

    1. The theory of evolution states that life is random which of course was used to destroy the christian faith and the existence of god, his son being executed by a bunch of money changing devils…..nice try though on the double speak.
      There is one problem though, the idea of a chosen people that does bother me….wouldn’t god love all his children equally. He sure would.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      “Everything” points to the quantum living universe.
      “Nothing” points to the quantum interface.
      The conscious cannot exist w/o the interaction between
      2:
      everything/nothing
      yang/ying.

        1. Robert, that is the trail I am on, all this other nonsense is just more confusion.
          Chaos, more chaos, chaos….they just keep on piling it on.

        2. Robert Barricklow

          Bottom line/

          it is an “open system”
          spiritual masterpiece
          of, for, & by the “living”.

          1. And god said to atom, you may eat from any tree from the garden, but if you eat a people with the knowledge of binary code of good and evil these people will remove you from the tree of life.
            And Cain laid hands on able and together cainabels left gods garden and feasted on its people.

            The cannibals always go for the soft, easy target.
            …..Satan’s claws, silent night holy night is about eating the babies who are tender and mild…who then sleep in heavenly peace.
            That’s why we are the baby boomers…..and that is also why white genocide is going on.

            Its a theory I have been working on, goes against everything I have been taught….the pattern on a Scottish kilt is a representation of a persons, tribes DNA….funny how they discovered white people with kilts buried in Tibet….

            Nothing new though….

          2. “white genocide”? Except not.

            Why bring this up? And what is “double speak” here:

            “his son being executed by a bunch of money changing devils…..nice try though on the double speak.”

            You’ve missed the entire point about the claims of random evolution.

            And just had to drop in the antisemitism didn’t you.

            You seem too worried about DNA and santa.

            And the point is what:

            “pattern on the Scottish kilt is a representation of a persons, tribes DNA….funny how they discovered white people with kilts buried in Tibet…”?

            Were the kilts in Tibet tartans? And who cares it’s well known that there were Turkish tribes in Asia–and plenty of Turks are light skinned blond haired types.

            Why the assumption that the other is out to get, and the self is the party of universal love?

          3. And also sang Robert Zimmerman:

            “The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind” and:

            “He did 10 years in Attica reading Nietzsche and Wilhelm Reich”,

            and later:

            “If the bible is right the world will explode”.

            Then earlier:

            “Einstein disguised as Robin Hood with his memories in a trunk
            Passed this way an hour ago with his friend a jealous monk”

            About what is the monk jealous? And Einstein sure knew of Reich.

          4. Sigh lost, when it rains it pours…

            And when evil reigns,
            It rains on the just and the unjust alike

            So have a good cheer, its the most wonderful time of the year….

  14. This speculative line of inquiry appears consistent with that of metaphoric disclosure through science fiction. It does rather sound like we are discussing The Force from Star Wars.

    Alternatively, we might postulate that, if human consciousness is, in part, non-local, science fiction writers are somehow attuned to certain deeper aspects of reality, which is unconsciously expressed in their work as metaphor.

  15. Quantum mechanics ultimately indicates that life arises so that consciousness can exist. Consciousness allows structured energy to cohere into the physical universe. Without conscious beings to experience it, the universe would remain immanent energy; the final implication of the double-slit experiment is that consciousness precipitates the quantum universe into physiality.

  16. Remove time from the evolutionists equation and that should clear up there confused state. Biological entities adapt to there controlled environment. This is in tptb double speak referred to as junk DNA. They would have you believe that a747 will miracously appear from a junk yard …..naturally. The records indicate that something mixed animal DNA with a superior being….Prometheus.
    Perhaps, it was done so we could enjoy this matrix of energy into matter more convincingly which is also covered in ancient texts.
    The understanding of the pyramids on a personal level, that is outside of humans with ulterior motives, is what is known as sin, is key to understanding the possibility of this scenario. The sin wave from a energy to matter is where the remixing was done. Hence the founding fathers two thirds human analogy to describe a slave species might be explained as to what they were thinking. With tan and cos waves left intact.
    Its a theory, sure explains peoples bizarre materialistic squirling away of wealth, as if they could take it with them. I think that it may be possible to somewhat repair that sin damage, on a superficial level in thought.

    1. But on a DNA level, the damage is permanent. You see this pattern repeat all through history. The slave species becomes educated, and promptly kills off the employer who enabled them. With that accomplished the structure of society implodes. Think I am wrong? It sure does explain the public education system, which is pure nonsense, and the elites per occupation with war, which is really just human culling. It preserves there domination.
      Thus, neo Anderson, neanderthal, is a fabrication of agent smith and the lady in red….aptly played by a half breed whose father was a convicted murderer.

      1. jedi,

        First see above, where there webware places things.

        Then the lady in red is not an active agent in the movie. So why the distraction? To call attention to the actress’ DNA?

        1. Agent smith, is lady in red,…..you will know them by there fruits.
          The entire matrix is a scripted affair starting with Morpheus the white rabbit and the blue red concept.
          A maze, the Bait……to get neo to unhook from nature and buy into the fiction. …..

          Lol, rhps…d be riff raff, agent smith, magenta, the lady in red……

          It was great when it all began I was a regular akhnenaten man,
