Science Theory: Sudden Evolution

PART I spring 2010

There’s a mention in the Bible book of Exodus of an occasion when the Israelites were battling for territory in Canaan. A Hebrew commander spotted a stranger observing the combat, and demanded of him, “Are you with us or against us?”
Those were the only conceivable possibilities, -but in reality there was a third.
His answer was, “No! But I am a messenger from the most high God.”

I relate that story to the discussion of Evolution vs Creationism.  Each side assumes there are only 2 boxes to choose from, but in fact there is a third.  It starts by stating that both theories are wrong, but not completely, and both theories are correct, but not completely.  Here’s how.
There never existed an analogy to the third possibility until the rise of Google.  Search engines holds an incomprehensible amount of information and it is almost all available to access, but it requires very special equipment (internet access devices).
Likewise, there exists (in the metaphysical dimension) a repository of infinite “information” and biological design possibilities, -and that information can be accessed -but only under unusual or extraordinary circumstances, and usually only on a subconscious level.

It is from that realm that biological life draws solutions to pressing problems,  and the information from that realm can result in adjustments to the DNA of reproductive cells, resulting in biological alterations that take perhaps only a generation -or two.  You might call it Sudden Evolution.

This is design improvement through the influence of the energy of the cosmic “intelligence” that can alter biological matter on the molecular or chromosomal level.  Creatures / biological systems are capable of sub-consciously perceiving things that would help them survive/thrive/mate.

That perception is experienced as a sub-conscious desire, and the energy of that desire can have a positive impact on their reproductive cells, which can enhance a physical feature of their offspring.  It gets even more interesting to contemplate that the same process is possible in the plant realm, resulting in total interdependence between certain plants and insects which can’t survive without each other.  Their adaptation evolved simultaneously.
Of course it can’t be assumed that there isn’t more (perhaps much more) to it than that.  While it explains evolutionary adaptation, it doesn’t explain the sudden rise of entirely new species.
Regarding humans, the connection with the metaphysical realm reaches the conscious level when one has an epiphany, a sudden realization of an ingenious solution to a vexing problem (like Einstein had with the theory of relativity, and numerous inventors who had a sudden realization of the solution to a design problem, [often while dreaming] resulting in inventions that changed the world), -or an inspired piece of music or song.

Sting experienced an unforgettable song that came to him in his sleep, which he wrote down while only half awake.  The next morning he awoke to having most of his hit song “Every Move You Make”.  It came to him ‘out of the blue’.  I know that that is possible because I also have experienced it.

The “psychic” realm also includes things like pre-cognition and clairvoyance, which involves knowing things that one has no way to know.  Identical twins experience it more than non-twins.
So it could be said to incorporate “intelligent” design (though without an active designer) with optimized evolution being the result.   This third theory might also be called “intelligent evolution”.   It throws out active manipulation by a Supreme Being, and also throws out random, unintelligent evolution resulting in superior life forms.

The design information available in the omnipresent metaphysical dimension is like a limitless cosmic google whose mindless robotic influence advances all evolutionary changes.
This may sound strange to those locked in one of the first two boxes, but the more one considers it, the more it will be seen to fill the holes in both of those theories.  Although it sounds strange, remember that it is a very strange universe that we live in, and we know essentially zero about the origin of many important things.

PART II  summer 2011  / ~an expanded reiteration

The issue of the origins of species is divided into the two basic camps of evolution and creationism.  It is universally assumed that those two views are the only ones that exist, but there is a third possibility which I am proposing today.  It is the possibility that all biological design derives from what I’ll label the Metaphysical,  Omnipresent, All-inclusive Data-bank of Design ; i.e. the M.O.A.D.D.
For agnostics it can be viewed as the source repository for the information needed to achieve results that manifest intelligent design.

Think of the M.O.A.D.D  in terms of the internet “Cloud”.  The Cloud holds all the data and applications one applies on their computing devices and it’s all accessed invisibly, wirelessly, like tapping into universal search engine data-bases which hold all the knowledge one is looking for but which the searching device doesn’t.

The influence of this source may explain most that is currently unexplainable.  It will sound like pure science fiction but it doesn’t belong in the category of the unbelievable when you consider that what is seen and not seen in the fossil record is also unbelievable/ unexplainable from the stand point of both evolution and creationism.

Somethings that can’t be seen are nevertheless real, such as anything microscopic, or invisible, like radiation (other than visible light), magnetism, gravity, as well as something that we know exists but which we can’t see.  We can only see a reflection of it.  But if a person was created out of nothing in a world without mirrors or other living beings, it would be impossible to grasp reading about the existence of the human cornea.

It is totally invisible as if it were not even there.  We look right through it but it doesn’t seem like it even exists because there is no distortion nor cloudiness nor flaws of any kind to reveal its presence.  Yet if one gets a speck of dirt under the eye-lid the cornea then sure makes its existence known.  Because it is real, even though it’s “invisible” to us.

So it is with the Forth Dimension.  It’s there, it’s just as real, and just as invisible.  It is a non-physical dimension, non-corporeal, existing only in various forms of energy, energy that is manifested in at least four areas; 1. Personality, (think; sentient beings vs plants)  2.  4th Dimensional Experience (out-of-body)  3. Information, & Perception,  4.) Design & Structure

For this screed I’m only going to focus on 3: Information and 4: Design.  The evidence of the Information aspect of the Meta-physical Dimension (MD) is the easiest aspect to employ to establish the rational belief that the other aspects also therefore might exist.
The information aspect is revealed by the phenomenons of clairvoyance, telepathy, and pre-cognition; knowing things by psychic perception or ‘knowing’ that an event is going to happen before it does.

Deja-vu is a close cousin (experience wise), though of a whole different nature which is related to the past, it would seem, rather than the future.  The psychic connection between twins, memories of events experienced by someone who died years ago.  Psychic phenomenon has been extensively written about for over 100 years and there must be well over 100 enlightening books written over the decades.  So either you know of its reality or you don’t.  Ignorance can be fixed, but dogmatic rejection of anything that can’t be seen is harder to correct.

Now lets start from the position that the Meta-physical Dimension does exist.  What might be its influence on life in our dimension?  We know that life is a form of energy this is not understood in the least.  And we know from the laws of physics that there is no such thing as destruction of energy, it merely changes form, or…changes dimensions.

In the M-D there exists a kind of  omnipresent “data bank” of all information, all laws of nature, all laws of life, all principles of design, and all possibilities of design relating to all entities, whether they be  inanimate objects or  living organisms. The former would be related to mathematics and the principles of aesthetics, form, structure, function, color, strength, and usability.
The latter, living organisms, would be related to the areas of micro-biology, reproduction, adaptation, genetics,  DNA arrangements, epigenetics, etc.

The M-D is like a Universal Google, a Library-of-Alexandria, a repository of everything.  It contains all designs of everything in all possible variations.  Everything in mathematics, physics, molecular biology, music & melody, abstract concepts, and most importantly, design.

Design is what is behind all life on earth, in every form, and in every manifestation.  From viruses to blue whales, it’s all about design & structure, whether it be on the atomic level or the macro body-design level.  DNA and epigenetics affect all forms of life, but what affects DNA and epigenes?  What are the factors and forces that can alter them?

We know well that environmental influences can be harmful to them and result in negative alterations and degradation.  But what isn’t known nor realized is that need can also influence them.  A very serious physical need will always come with an ‘openness’ to (and “desire” for) a solution to survive a serious deficiency or threat.  Higher forms of life will experience that desire as a conscious or sub-conscious craving, a craving for relief, or for a missing capability.
Micro-organisms will experience that craving in a way that we know nothing about.  But the result of that energy, that desire, that craving is that it can result in becoming in tune with the genetic design data in the M-D which provides the solution to the problem or deficiency. In modern terms, it connects to the universal internet and downloads the design changes it needs.  Just like primal software.

This is most easily realized by what has been seen in the ability of viruses, like the HIv which causes AIDS, as well as other organisms that have developed immunity to most or all drugs. Their ability to adapt is evidence that isn’t explainable by creationism nor the slow processes of evolution. Something takes place quickly and it doesn’t involve the interfering intelligence of a focused thinking spirit.  Rather it involves the” intelligence” of the M.O.A.D.D.
To a desperate organism there is something akin to a ‘download’ from the M-D which is then incorporated into its programming or that of its off-spring.  You can believe it or don’t, but nothing else can  explain it.  So yes, if you take it as true, you do take it on faith, but not faith alone. It is no more fantastical  than all of the theories of quantum mechanics and cosmology but probably less so since it is based entirely on logic and knowledge of the paranormal.

It’s been said that if you can’t find what is missing where it is supposed to be then it must be where it is not supposed to be.  But to find it you have to give up your conventional thinking and think outside of the box.  Not everyone is capable of doing that.

symbiosis

by unknown
I choose not to believe in things that are unbelievable. Such as:

The idea that there was nothing, then nothing went “BANG!,” and then there was everything.
And even more surprising, 95% of the result of that Bang is invisible and undetectable!

The idea that all that tangible congealing nothingness then managed to organize itself into complex systems in the total absence of any explainable physical compulsive force which would cause it to do so.

The idea that all that self-organized nothingness spontaneously formed itself into self-contained systems with hundreds, or even thousands, of irreducibly complex and essential sub-systems operating in symbiosis, despite the fact that the odds of that are essentially zero-over-infinity.

That all that evermore complex nothingness came alive, despite the fact that Spontaneous Generation has been as thoroughly disproven as anything can be in science…

…and branched out into lots of different globs of hyper-organized nothingness that could only survive if a bunch of wildly different types came alive at the same moment in the same location.

…and that it not only managed to stay alive…but that unique new ‘living’ system somehow,someway created a means to replicate itself. It didn’t wait around to do so but managed to fabricate that amazing system right from the git-go. Ingenius! It appeared fully prepared for self-perpetuation!

…and even eventually turned itself into ever-better versions of itself despite the complete lack of any ability to create new and improved genetic information…

But what do I know? I’m just a guy who prefers to avoid irrationality.

    The great secret of science is that it cannot possibly be used to explain existence. While it can do a good job of describing or explaining changes, it cannot describe or explain origin.
    The reason scientists describe the changes taking place in the universe during minute fractions of the first second, but never describe T=0 itself, is because they must PRESUME that something came from nothing as a first postulate. They must postulate it because something coming from nothing cannot possibly be true. It isn’t scientific. At a minimum, some law, some physical law, is required to exist at T=0. And a law is not nothing.

    Mathematically, an infinite quantity is inevitably generated – a “singularity” – and science and math cannot define infinite quantities.Moving the infinite quantity around by postulating infinitely thin ” ‘branes” or infinitely long “superstrings” doesn’t solve the conundrum. It just moves the infinite quantity around. It is tempting to try to understand an infinite quantity as being mathematical, but larger in number. But it isn’t. It’s more than that.
    Logically, it is inescapable that the dimensions of space/time and energy that comprise our universe are necessarily a smaller part of a larger dimension, something greater and different and not at all subservient to either. “Conscious awareness” perhaps? Maybe. It must be capable of establishing and enforcing a Physical Law.

    Scientist are people, maybe. People need food and shelter, therefore money to pay for them.
    Better is better, bigger is better still.
    Once addicted to stuff, money becomes the score medium since we don’t know what we may want next.
    More is desired, leading to the want for the comfort of enough.
    How much is enough? who knows? (requires an individual answer).
    We embrace the evil love of money because of the real fear of dearth.
    This evil (love) exists as evil because it replaces caring love as a motivator.

  2. …Most of the scientists I spoke with said that the old dichotomy between adaptive adornment and arbitrary beauty, between “good genes” and Fisherian selection, is being replaced with a modern conceptual synthesis that emphasizes multiplicity. “Beauty is something that arises from a host of different mechanisms,” says Gil Rosenthal, an evolutionary biologist at Texas A&M University and the author of the new scholarly tome “Mate Choice.” “It’s an incredibly multilayered process.”

    The environment constrains a creature’s anatomy, which determines how it experiences the world, which generates adaptive and arbitrary preferences, which loop back to alter its biology, sometimes in maladaptive ways. Beauty reveals that evolution is neither an iterative chiseling of living organisms by a domineering landscape nor a frenzied collision of chance events. Rather, evolution is an intricate clockwork of physics, biology and perception in which every moving part influences another in both subtle and profound ways. Its gears are so innumerable and dynamic — so susceptible to serendipity and mishap — that even a single outcome of its ceaseless ticking can confound science for centuries.
    ~~~~~Perhaps more than any other object of aesthetic obsession, flowers expose the futility of trying to contain beauty in a single theoretical framework. Consider how flowers came to be and how we grew to love them: 150 million years ago many pollen-producing plants depended on the wind to spread their pollen and reproduce. But certain insects, perhaps beetles and flies, began to eat those protein-rich pollen grains, inadvertently transporting them from one plant to another. This proved to be a much more efficient means of fertilization than capricious air currents. Plants with the richest and most obvious sources of pollen were especially successful. Likewise, insects that were particularly adept at finding pollen had an advantage over their peers.

    Through a long process of co-evolution, plants and pollinators transformed one another. Some plants began to modify their leaves into proto-flowers: little flags that marked the location of their pollen. Bold colors and distinctive shapes helped them stand out in a tangle of green. Strong aromas and ultraviolet beacons played upon pollinators’ senses. Nectar sweetened the deal. Insects, birds and mammals began competing for access, evolving wings, tongues and brains better suited to the quest for floral sustenance. As the pressure from both parties intensified, plants and their pollinators formed increasingly specific relationships, hurtling each other toward aesthetic and adaptive extremes — a bird that hums and hovers like an insect, an orchid that mimics the appearance and scent of a female bee.

    Many millions of years later, flowers enchanted yet another species. Perhaps the initial attraction was purely utilitarian: the promise of fruit or grain. Maybe we were captivated by their consonance of color, form and aroma. Whatever the case, we adopted numerous flowering plants into an expanding circle of domesticated species. We brought them into greenhouses and laboratories, magnifying their inherent beauty, creating new hybrids and tailoring their features to our individual tastes. We contracted orchid delirium and tulip mania, and we have never fully recovered. The flower began as a plea and became a phenomenon.
