GUEST POST: FIRST THE END, THEN THE BEGINNING

(This week is a really unusual week since we've had two guest submissions by regular readers here, so this weekend I am dedicating to these guest posts, and will resume my posting this coming week. Here's an intriguing post from Ms. K.M.):

 

THE PULSE MODEL AND THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES

Paleobiology is the study of biological entities and environments from the distant past.   While many scientists have convinced themselves that they “have a pretty good picture” of say, the last 8 million years in terms of the fossil record, a survey into the topic underscores the sparsity of the fossil record and how resistant to the theory of evolution it actually is.

It’s not their fault; finding meaningful fossils is hard and expensive work, fitting them into a schema to explain their relationship with other fossils and time periods is data-deprived, and like economists, when there is little data, just speculate and call it a theory.   Again, I empathize, but the records and their interpretive contexts are based mostly on speculation and “reasonable assumptions,” agendas and manipulations, as Michael Cremo teaches us.  If the data does not fit, then hide it.

It's actually quite medæval, and the Church of Science is here to enforce against blasphemy.  Science has adopted a classist model as their shield, as if its worship of novelty could ever beget a stable orthodoxy.

This author is not imploring them to stop developing their theses.  Hardly.  It’s just that everyone hearing about their work needs to understand how tentative the work actually is, and how subject to obfuscation and manipulation a thin record will always be.   Where facts fail us imagination is always ready to come to the rescue.

A recent article in Phys.org, covers a study published in the prestigious Paleobiology journal from the Cambridge University Press.   Since 1985, there has been a stream of articles looking for evidence that species extinction rates were driven by “climate change.”   The author, W. Andrew Barr, does a masterful job admonishing the field while appearing eminently helpful.

While of course we could waste these precious keystrokes whining about the hoaxish climate spectacle, I actually found some of the data in the article much more interesting for wholly different reasons.

First, as Phys.org quotes Dr. Barr as saying,

“The idea that our genus originated more than 2.5 million years ago as part of a turnover pulse in direct response to climate change has a deep history in paleonthropology," [he] said. "My study shows that the magnitude of that pulse could be caused by random fluctuations in speciation rates. One implication is that we may need to broaden our search for why our genus arose at that time and place."

"The idea that the origin of [Genus] Homo is part of a climate-caused turnover pulse doesn't really bear out when you carefully look at the evidence and compare it against other possible explanations," Dr. Barr said.

"My research challenges scientists to be careful about the stories they tell about the history of human adaption,” Dr. Barr said. “Traits that make humans different from our ancestors, like larger brains and greater technological sophistication, could have arisen for a variety of reasons,” he said.

"We can sit in the present and tell stories of the past that make sense of our modern day adaptations," he said. "But these could have evolved for reasons we don't know."

What this author particularly enjoys about Dr. Barr’s commentary is that it’s just solid scientific thinking. Don't rush ahead of the data and test your assumptions! And while the study and its paper seem to be directed towards Whack-a-Moling the climate bandwagon people, the data in the paper raise interesting questions.

In this Giza Death Star community and in Joseph’s works, we have tapped into the ideatum that more than one set of catastrophes destroyed civilizations in the “heliosphere,” (that is to say, our solar system); and we have tapped into the ideatum that there is evidence that the technology existed to cause such catastrophe deliberately.  The evidence, amassed by Joseph Farrell, Richard C. Hoagland and his imaging team, Tom Van Flandern, Paul Laviolette, and many others, just keeps piling up, taking us from "skeptical", to "considering", to "makes sense", to "flabbergasted", over a decade, as it requires years for the meaning of the data to sink in.  It’s that big.  It’s not the game of the millennium being played.  It’s the million-year game. And ladies and gentlemen, you are bit players on the board.  Let that sink in.  Just contemplate the stakes.

With all of the research about the history of Helios, it’s easier to find evidence of when the civilizations ended, as carbon layers and holes in the ground are easier to find than the frail hints of when these civilizations arose and how long they lasted. The article by Dr. Barr is instructive in this regard.  The current stream of paleobiology tells us that beginning more than 4.5 million years ago  a gigantic pulse of new life began on Earth, nearly an order of magnitude more speciation appeared and one of those new species was us.   (There is other evidence stretching the date out much longer, but let's just run with this).

The appearance of a fossil does not necessarily correlate with the appearance of a species.   Detection is the limiting factor; there have to be enough beings long dead to have a meaningful probability to be detected as fossils.  Detection of Lucy and her ilk says nothing about when her people arose.

Further, the data in the article by Dr. Barr shows that extinction rates exploded much later, long after the great pulse of life, right around 3.25 million years ago.   This is yet another data point correlating to the Cosmic War hypothesis.  A planet exploding ten astronomical units away would have devastating consequences for the Earth for tens of thousands of years as pieces and parts found the Earth in great flashes. The great rush of new species brought to Earth by survivors would grow the extinction rate for a very long time.  Our current asteroid risk remains as a reminder of that awful day, giving an indication of how intense the swarm might have been when it began.

Being that we have centered on 3.25 million years ago as the date when all the comets, asteroids and Mars come together in the asteroid belt, the "big boom" date of that Kardashev II culture, we can can now see the “Helians,” that pan-solar system civilization, might have well have begun Kardeshev acceleration during the pulse reported in Dr. Barr’s article.   From birth to death, that civilization may well have lasted over one million years, not withstanding the Sumerian King's List.   Gone in the geologic blink of time, but well long enough to reach Kardashev II, we and the many novel plants and animals of that time are the survivors.

Kurzweil's singularity correctly suggests that the pace of technical novelty is accelerating.  Moore's Law covers only density of information processing, not density of progress.  Just imagine where our technology would likely be in one million years, if the idiots, the Deep Stooges, who run things, recognized that Earth is just one piece and there’s a whole chessboard to play with out there, perhaps with grandmasters of no set lifespan, "Homo Deus", who know how the game is played.

It's like everywhere this author looks, more and more real information is to be found.  But don't expect anyone to tell you what it means.  You have to look at it and learn to trust your mind again and take the risk of being wrong.

  1. One must also keep in mind that the methods of dating events in the distant past are not very reliable. Geographic strata are dated by the fossils they contain, and the fossils are dated by strata layer, in a very circular process with its roots in the 1800s.

    Most dating assumes many things not proven, such as the rate of decay of radioactive isotopes, which we now know can vary considerably – which is not taken into account in most practices of geologic dating.

    One doesn’t need Kurzweil’s input to realize that technology always accelerates in any society which teaches past discoveries to its children. Each successive generation will naturally build on what has gone before instead of reinventing the wheel (under ideal conditions, anyway), hence will accelerate the advance of technology with each generation.

    Our whole society is speeding up, which I consider due largely to unnatural interference pushing meaningless “upgrades” to generate massive wealth transfer.

    You would be surprised how much of our current technology would have been possible with late 1800s technology.

      Deadly upgrades.
      They exacerbate the corporate robots eating up the living biosphere[living economy eaten by the virtual economy of corporate bots]

    2. It would not surprise me at all. Physics took a “left” turn and became “read only.” The ability to write the physical plane has been kept entirely under wraps.

  2. Robert Barricklow

    There is much more to the “evolution” theory that is just an excellent obfuscation that suffices now for the masses current status intellectually. A Swiss cheese version with obvious whole holes that beg to be addressed, like the rapid changes geared more by an “intelligence” than the roll of the bones[dice/chance]. Also, the environment, that plays a key epigenetic role, is more than just chance.
    As in Horatio’s, “There are more things in heaven & earth, than are dreamt of in your philosophy…”

  3. (Let’s try it again, with “t1tled” being the possible no-no…)

    Decades back, “Analog” SF magazine ran a fact-based article ti tled “The Cambrian Seedship.” In the article, the author laid out a scenario for Earth having been the recipient of a space-based ‘seedship’. The author made a very convincing case that true genetic diversity was at an all-time high immediately after one moment in Earth’s history, and has been whittled-down to a shadow of this diversity since then. (There were REALLY different – even bizarre – shapes and configurations at the start of the Cambrian, not just the number of toes and positions of fins.) If ‘someone’ dumped every possible (survivable) variation into Earth’s seas, it would look a lot like this. Hmm…

    One ‘classic’ debating tactic has been to limit the scope of what is to be debated in the first minutes of the debate (if not beforehand). If one has a weak-spot, that can be successfully ‘edited out’ of the discussion with this tactic. (It works; look at the MSM.)

    I suggest that this ‘tactic’ is used in the arena covered by Ms. K.M. If one can limit the debate to ONLY planet Earth, then one has closed-off ‘weak points’ of the debate. Once the debating-field has been opened to the whole Solar System, quite different ‘scenarios’ may apply.

    I would suggest that once the debating-field has been opened to the whole Milky Way Galaxy – or at least the local portion – quite different ‘rules’ may again apply…

  5. interesting tidbits in thunderbolts.info and electric universe theory. fossils were formed instantly electrically, not slowly. volcanic, seismic, tectonic, meteorlogic are all electric. and most resultant substances, formations and ancient evidence were formed in an instant electrically. not over eons by erosion, gravity, pressure,…. does that change how one might picture evolution?

    also epigenetic studies (above-genetics) are highlighting that evolution (genetic change) occurs at infinitely faster rates than darwin (and galton) ever gave us their scams to believe (and justify their social darwinianism).

    1. Re. evolution being instant, and this post in general, I’m reminded of the massive dinosaurs whose weight would crush themselves given the “gravity” of this current physical planet (wanted to mention this yesterday to do with the moon, and the ‘sticky’ residue found within their bones screaming relatively recent death), giants in general but also specifically those of Bashan. These guys were huge. Their houses still stand in testament to their size. Although a shrimp in comparison, my grand-father-in-law stood six foot six. He bred with a woman who stood 4’4″. Their seven children were all below 5’5″. That’s a loss of a whopping foot in one single generation. Could this be considered evolution in keeping with the changing static electrical system on this planet, as noted by John Jensen in Earth Epochs, which is strongly suggested has having changed dramatically in the last few thousand years? Why such a figure? Paleoscientists? (Whada they know.)
      It could have been within the last 500 or 100 years- if you ask someone like Nik Research he’d say it was more recent. But however the timeline is figured- most definitely electrical in nature.

  6. The alleged destruction of Mayan / Alexandria libraries has weighed heavy on my mind. As JPF has postulated, just how much info on mankind’s actual history exists in the Vatican, etc. is very interesting speculation. JPF’s interpretation of ancient manuscripts gives us a serious analysis of just what happened in our long forgotten past.

    1. the powerfullest entities seems intent on limiting the knowledge the rest of us can access. seems a few of us get past the gatekeepers enough to outpace some or all of them for access. tesla obviously went farther and faster than folk more powerful than him wanted him to go. what do folk who get past tesla’s level (and gatekeepers) need to be and do? how do the livestock take over the farm without making animal farm mistakes?

  7. anakephalaiosis

    An interstellar civilization, capable of terraforming, can jumpstart an ecosystem anytime. Lifetime guaranty – for a self sustaining system – may include a reset option to “reboot the planet”. I would like to see the contract. (Beam me up, I got questions!)

    The idea of a solar system quarantine is valid. Because we do not trust cloned hybrids with weapons of mass destruction, nor do we let children play with fire. To clean the genes is a moral decision. To empty the “aquarium” is an interstellar executive decision.

  8. The problem boils down to which origins story you wish to believe and who’s interest does it serves and which ruling class. The real truth is shrouded in half truths and fabricated lies of convenience.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Right on the money Marcos!
      An agreed upon fable
      garbed in interest$ of those
      it serves.

  9. Evidence is found in stone on every continent. No doubt, it will, and has been found on Antarctica, and possibly in a more pristine condition. What may have been found on other planetary bodies may never come to light.
    You cannot, by intent, misinterpret, ignore, or purposely destroy evidence and reach anything close to a correct conclusion.

  10. Pulse Model is undoubtedly a softer, soothing term to use than Cosmic War Model; less likely to scare the horses.
