Ancient food webs developed modern structure soon after mass extinction

Ancient food webs developed modern structure soon after mass extinction | It Comes Undone-Think About It | Scoop.it
Researchers from the Santa Fe Institute and the Smithsonian Institution have pieced together a highly detailed picture of feeding relationships among 700 mammal, bird, reptile, fish, insect, and plant species from a 48 million year old lake and forest ecosystem.

Their analysis of fossilized remains from the Messel deposit near Frankfurt, Germany, provides the most compelling evidence to date that ancient food webs were organized much like modern food webs. Their paper describing the research appears online and open access this week in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.

Eli Levine's insight:

There is, indeed, not much that is new in this world.

 

One would think that humans would learn to live in relative harmony with nature.


However, I do not think that the brain types of those with real political power (everyone from public to private elites), as well as the brain types of the people in the general pool of society are capable of doing this at this time.

 

Therefore, we are going to kill ourselves off in mass droves.

 

And we probably won't learn our lessons, in spite of the damage that we're going to inflict on ourselves.

Selectively altering belief formation in the human brain

Selectively altering belief formation in the human brain-

 

Humans form beliefs asymmetrically; we tend to discount bad news but embrace good news. This reduced impact of unfavorable information on belief updating may have important societal implications, including the generation of financial market bubbles, ill preparedness in the face of natural disasters, and overly aggressive medical decisions. Here, we selectively improved people’s tendency to incorporate bad news into their beliefs by disrupting the function of the left (but not right) inferior frontal gyrus using transcranial magnetic stimulation, thereby eliminating the engrained “good news/bad news effect.” Our results provide an instance of how selective disruption of regional human brain function paradoxically enhances the ability to incorporate unfavorable information into beliefs of vulnerability.

The social motivation hypothesis for prosocial behavior (with Marion Godman and Mikko Salmela)

Abstract  Existing economic models of prosociality have been rather silent interms of  proximate  psychological mechanisms. We nevertheless identifythe psychologically most informed accounts and offer a criticaldiscussion of their hypotheses for the proximate psychologicalexplanations. Based on convergent evidence from several fields ofresearch we argue that there nevertheless is a more plausiblealternative proximate account available: the social motivationhypothesis. The hypothesis represents a more basic explanation of theappeal of prosocial behavior, which is in terms of anticipated socialrewards. We also argue in favour of our own social motivation hypothesis over Robert Sugden’s fellow -feeling account (due originallyto Adam Smith). We suggest that the social motivation not only standsas a proximate account in its own right; it also provides a plausiblescaffold for other more sophisticated motivations (e.g. fellow-feelings).We conclude by discussing some possible implications the socialmotivation hypothesis has on existing modelling practice.

Eli Levine's insight:

Humans are social animals.  We rely on others for the sake of our survival and well being, and would not have done as well if we had not had these pro-social instincts.


I think we're in the middle of another evolutionary transition where our brains are what are evolving most rapidly.  Anti-social or delusional tendencies are going to be punished, either by society or the environment, while pro-social and well grounded tendencies are going to end up being rewarded.  We cannot continue to survive with the logic of negative leadership for very long.  At least the so called "leaders" who buy into the need for force and deception to govern a people aren't going to last very long.

 

At least, I hypothesize they won't, owing to the nature of nature and the nature of humans in societies.

Is Collaboration Limited by Organizational Structure? | It Comes Undone-Think About It | Scoop.it

Organizational design has a huge impact on decision-making and collaboration, and both reflects, and often creates, the level of collaboration and autonomy with and amongst the workforce. Culture may eat strategy for lunch but decision-making, reporting and budgeting structures can either birth or strangle both culture and strategy with both hands tied behind its back.

At this stage we have four primary organizational models along a continuum from command and control to cooperative and anarchic..

Eli Levine's insight:

Honestly, I don't get how the Ukrainian government failed to bring in the Russian people, why they didn't attempt to do that, and how the West didn't advise them to do that.

There are legitimate Fascists and Ukrainian ultra-nationalists in the government and in the pro-EU camp, after all.  Why would any group not work to suppress those racist, senseless and ideologically grounded elements and welcome in the other to form a unity government and a unified society is beyond me.  It seemed obvious enough to me, at least, that this was the best course of action for the Ukrainian government in Kiev.

However, it's too late for that for Crimea, and the most it seems that they can do is to work in and integrate Eastern Ukraine into the whole of a unified Ukrainian state.  This was a democratic decision, and a moral decision on the part of society.  Legality means nothing when a people want to determine their own leadership and where that leadership lies.

Or, has the United States' leadership forgotten that that's how we got started in the first place?

Six Egyptian soldiers are shot dead at a checkpoint in the Cairo suburb of Shubra al-Khaymah, state media report.

And then there was this incident earlier yesterday.

 

The sad part is, is that Egypt could have avoided this now random killing, if its leadership had paid attention to the crowd and the expressed needs of people living in their society. Egypt is not likely to have a liberal, Western style democracy, like we have.

 

However, they could have easily avoided the overthrow of Mohammad Morsi and the spread of this violence, if they had listened and shown respect to their people, as I had advocated for and prescribed.

 

Now, six people are dead, their blood on the hands of the leadership of Egypt from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Army/Secularists.

Collective attention in the age of (mis)information

It'sIn this work we study, on a sample of 2.3 million individuals, how Facebook users consumed different information at the edge of political discussion and news during the last Italian electoral competition. Pages are categorized, according to their topics and the communities of interests they pertain to, in a) alternative information sources (diffusing topics that are neglected by science and main stream media); b) online political activism; and c) main stream media. We show that attention patterns are similar despite the different qualitative nature of the information, meaning that unsubstantiated claims (mainly conspiracy theories) reverberate for as long as other information. Finally, we categorize users according to their interaction patterns among the different topics and measure how a sample of this social ecosystem (1279 users) responded to the injection of 2788 false information posts. Our analysis reveals that users which are prominently interacting with alternative information sources (i.e. more exposed to unsubstantiated claims) are more prone to interact with false claims.

Eli Levine's insight:

It's amazing to see how little we've individually and collectively accomplished in the past odd millenniums, with regards to understanding, accepting and embracing truth.  We all value it.  But very few people seem to really get at it.  Everyone and everything is suspect, even though some things really aren't apart of a malevolent plot or an innocent mistake.

 

As the Buddhists would say, we have to be like ducks, sifting through the water to get at milk that has been mixed in with it.

 

A shame that so many people are lousy at doing precisely this, for one reason and another.  And they'll be ruthlessly stubborn in preserving their opinions, even in light of the evidence and other forms of dialogue.

 

And therein lies the ultimate sovereignty of a nation and, indeed, all nations.

 

No wonder we haven't, and probably won't, do anything truly spectacular, as a species in the grand scheme of the universe.

Move comes a day after crackdown on popular messaging app by Internet security body president recently took over
Eli Levine's insight:

Turbulence is likely to just continue building within China as the government continues this crackdown without bringing about the meaningful economic, social and environmental changes that are required to keep the Communists in power. This could make the Communists one of the shortest lived dynasties in Chinese history.

 

However, China is not likely to be a fully Westernized liberal democracy as we seem to expect it to be here in the West. China will, most likely, band together under a strong central government that will seem repressive and authoritarian by our standards. However, the standards of being effective, protective and genuinely benevolent to your people is still going to remain in place, and I honestly don't think that the Communists of China seem aware or willing to be aware of the potential international and domestic problems that they are currently facing. All emphasis seems to be put into "cracking down" on people for expressing their concerns, rather than listening to and addressing those concerns in a prompt, effective and careful manner.

 

Like a marriage where one spouse doesn't pay attention to or listen to the needs of the other, the relationship between the society and the government is going to crack. Society will live on while the government who never listened or worked with the society is kicked out. That's practically straight out of Confucius, except instead of the government relating to the society as and adult over children, the government relates to the society as a marriage with both partners equally checking the other out. Society has the upper hand in these affairs, and I think Chinese can understand that. Except, how am I supposed to communicate that to them when I can't even reach my own political side in the real of geopolitics?

Beyond McMindfulness

Beyond McMindfulness | It Comes Undone-Think About It | Scoop.it

The rush to secularize and commodify mindfulness into a marketable technique may be leading to an unfortunate denaturing of this ancient practice, which was intended for far more than helping executives become better focused and more productive.

 

Suddenly mindfulness meditation has become mainstream, making its way into schools, corporations, prisons, and government agencies including the U.S. military. Millions of people are receiving tangible benefits from their mindfulness practice: less stress, better concentration, perhaps a little more empathy. Needless to say, this is an important development to be welcomed -- but it has a shadow.

Dark matter looks more and more likely after new gamma-ray analysis

Dark matter looks more and more likely after new gamma-ray analysis | It Comes Undone-Think About It | Scoop.it
Scientists describe as 'extremely interesting' new analysis that makes case for gamma rays tracing back to Wimp particles


Not long after the Fermi Gamma-ray SpaceTelescope took to the sky in 2008, astrophysicists noticed that it was picking up a steady rain of gamma rays pouring outward from the center of the Milky Way galaxy.


This high-energy radiation was consistent with the detritus of annihilating dark matter, the unidentified particles that constitute 84% of the matter in the universe and that fizzle upon contact with each other, spewing other particles as they go. If the gamma rays did in fact come from dark matter, they would reveal its identity, resolving one of the biggest mysteries in physics. But some argued that the gamma rays could have originated from another source.


Now a new analysis of the signal claims to rule out all other plausible explanations and makes the case that the gamma rays trace back to a type of particle that has long been considered the leading dark matter candidate – a weakly interacting massive particle, or Wimp. Meanwhile, a more tentative X-ray signal reported in two other new studies suggests the existence of yet another kind of dark matter particle called a sterile neutrino.


In the new gamma-ray analysis, which appeared February 27 on the scientific preprint site arXiv.org, Dan Hooper and his collaborators used more than five years' worth of the cleanest Fermi data to generate a high-resolution map of the gamma-ray excess extending from the center of the galaxy outward at least 10 angular degrees, or 5,000 light-years, in all directions.


"The results are extremely interesting," said Kevork Abazajian, an associate professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Irvine. "The most remarkable part of the analysis is that the signal follows the shape of the dark matter profile out to 10 degrees," he said, explaining that it would be "very difficult to impossible" for other sources to mimic this predicted dark matter distribution over such a broad range.


The findings do not constitute a discovery of dark matter, the scientists said, but they prepare the way for an upcoming test described by many researchers as a "smoking gun": If the gamma-ray excess comes from annihilating Wimps, and not conventional astrophysical objects, then the signal will also be seen emanating from dwarf galaxies that orbit the Milky Way – diffuse objects that are rich in dark matter but not in other high-energy photon sources such as pulsars, rotating neutron stars that have been floated as alternative explanations for the excess.
