Visualizing the Future | World Future Society | life's questions | Scoop.it

What if visualization, imagination, and art could change the future? Life imitates art, and life is now imitating science fiction.

Visualize this. Imagine a time in the future filled with “magical” technologies. Vertical farms, teleportation of 3-D printable food, and advanced biotechnology have eradicated hunger around the world. Age reversal has become possible, and human longevity has reached several hundred years. Automation, artificial intelligence (AI), and the new age of advanced self-replicating robots have freed humanity of the archaic idea of work. The word “job” has vanished from the human lexicon. Humans now spend their time in pursuit of higher realms of artistic, cognitive, and scientific exploration.

Imagine a future where we have become a multi-planetary species, with colonies on Mars, Titan, and Europa. Rumors of the first successful time-travel jump are circulating, and humanity finalizes its constitution of “Rules and Ethics of Time Travel.” Teleportation of people and goods has become common, and we are on the verge of becoming interstellar beings. We are projecting our consciousness into the cosmos. We are dancing among the stars.

The Me

The Me | life's questions | Scoop.it

The Me

 

In the Sumerian literature are the descriptions of The Me, “the holy laws of heaven and earth.”  In one particular tale, the goddess, Inanna, decides to obtain for her followers The Me from her maternal grandfather, Enki.  She does this by getting him thoroughly drunk, and skirting off with the goods.  Enki apparently tries to stop her, but fails.  At the same time, however, there is the very real possibility that Enki had determined all along to give Inanna The Me, but went through the pretence in order to avoid the wrath of the other gods and godesses, i.e., the Anunnaki.  Regardless of his true motive, however, The Me are worthy of mention. 

(2/9/9) Diane Wolkstein and Samuel Noel Kramer, in their book, Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth, describe The Me is the following terms:

"...to keep the cosmic entities and cultural phenomena operating continuously and harmoniously without conflict and confusion, they devised the me -- that set of universal and immutable rules and limits which had to be observed by god and man alike."

They include and/or involve (among other things):  

kingship and priesthood

“the holy measuring rod and line”,

shepherdship, quiver, dagger and sword

loosening and binding of the hair

art of love making, art of prostitution, procreation

truth, the art of being forthright

slanderous and adorning speech

the art of song, resounding musical instruments

arts of power and treachery,

deceit, plundering of cities

lamentations and rejoicings of the heart

the art of kindness

crafts of the wood and copper worker

crafts of the scribe, builder and leather maker

perceptive ear, power of attention

holy purification rites

fear, dismay, consternation

kindling and putting out of fire

counseling, giving of judgments, making of decisions

“bitter-toothed lion”

assembled family

and

the making of beer!  

For what else could any civilization worthy of the name ask?  Obviously, the Sumerian way is based on doing what is right and good -- as opposed to what is allowed by law and/or society.

1500 Year Old Bible Confirms That Jesus Christ Was Not Crucified – Vatican In Awe

1500 Year Old Bible Confirms That Jesus Christ Was Not Crucified – Vatican In Awe | life's questions | Scoop.it

Much to the dismay of the Vatican, an approx. 1500-2000 year old bible was found in Turkey, in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara.  Discovered and kept secret in the year 2000, the book contains the Gospel of Barnabas – a disciple of Christ – which shows that Jesus was not crucified, nor was he the son of God, but a Prophet.  The book also calls Apostle Paul “The Impostor”.  The book also claims that Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his place.

A thinker for troubled times

WHICH great minds of the past can we turn to for guidance as the year of Our Lord 2014 beckons, with all its perils and opportunities? Well, if you flick through any basic history of Western thought, chances are that Augustine of Hippo will feature somewhere in the early chapters.

 

Indeed, he may well be the only religious philosopher who rates a mention. Yes, Erasmus sometimes squeezes in too—I should hope so. But Augustine's ideas powerfully influenced the scholastic philosophers of the Middle Ages, and they in turn laid the ground for European humanism to blaze forth about 500 years ago...at any rate, so conventional wisdom goes. And even now when people try to make an intellectual case for the legitimacy, in certain circumstances, of war, their first port of call is Augustine's elaborate "just war" theory. Augustine was a product of Roman society and education and his favourite poem was the "Aeneid", describing the foundation of Rome: on the face of things, a sophisticate who appealed to, and helped to shape, the sophisticated minds of later eras.

 

But one of today's public intellectuals, a contrarian conservative who is no friend of conventional religion, is telling people to turn to Augustine for exactly the opposite reason—because the Christian thinker lived in an age when civilisation was crumbling. A time when it was obvious that empires and political systems could shrink as well as expand—only to be replaced not by rival empires but by a long, uncertain fight between different forces such as tribalism, sectarianism, criminal or clan loyalties. In Foreign Policy, a magazine based in Washington, DC, Robert Kaplan argues that the great Latin Christian would recognise the problems that now plague his native North Africa—from the internal fissures of post-Qaddafi Libya to the street protests that threaten a liberal, cosmopolitan way of life enjoyed by some in Tunis. (Augustine was born in modern-day Algeria near the Tunisian border.) Nor would he be surprised to see Syria and the Levant as a field of bitter contest between cultures and religions.

Now revealed, how body's defence keeps off 'junk' DNA attack

Now revealed, how body's defence keeps off 'junk' DNA attack | life's questions | Scoop.it

Had there been no defence mechanism in operation to minimise the collateral damage of what could be termed as a civil war among the 37 trillion cells in a human body, diseases could have been much more widespread than they are today.

Scientists have now discovered how our cells fight off the effects of the rogue DNAs, called LINE-1 retrotransposons, in our cells.

 

The new finding gives scientists the first proof of a hypothesised defence strategy, said John Moran, a professor at the University of Michigan in the US.

"It is often hard to see what normally happens during an efficient process that occurs inside our cells," said Moran.

On one side of the battle are "regular" DNA, which provide day-to-day instructions for life.

 

On the other side are tiny bits of rogue DNA that hide like spies between genes in our own DNA.

From time-to-time, these rogue bits of DNA spin off a copy of themselves and "jump" to another DNA location, often causing harmful mutations when they land.

 

To discover the defence mechanism of the cells, the researchers focused on the defensive activity of an enzyme called APOBEC3A and showed that it can cause mutations within the LINE-1 retrotransposons as they jump to new locations.

 

This prevents subsequent invasions into other areas of DNA.

This defensive strike sends out a signal to other defence forces inside the cell, which neutralise the jumping gene and sweep away the destroyed copy. The findings could also lead to the development of new cancer drugs, said the study which appeared in the journal eLife.

Researchers use DNA strands to create nanobot computer inside living animal

Researchers use DNA strands to create nanobot computer inside living animal | life's questions | Scoop.it

A team of researchers at Bar-Ilan University in Israel has successfully demonstrated an ability to use strands of DNA to create a nanobot computer inside of a living creature—a cockroach. In their paper published in Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers describe how they created several nanobot structures using strands of DNA, injected them into a living cockroach, then watched as they worked together as a computer to target one of the insects cells.

Prior research has shown that DNA strands can be programmable, mimicking circuits and even solving simple math problems. The team in Israel has now extended that work to show that such programmability can be used inside of a living organism to perform work, such as destroying cancer cells.

DNA strands can be programmed because of their natural tendency to react to different proteins. In this new effort, the team unwound DNA strands and then tied them together in an origami type box structure. The box was then "filled" with a single chemical molecule. Next, other such objects were created for the purpose of interacting with both the box structure and certain proteins found inside of the cockroach. The whole point was to create multiple scenarios in which the box would open automatically upon colliding with certain proteins. Adding multiple nanostructures allows for increasing the number of possibilities. For example, if the box structure will only open if it encounters three kinds of proteins, one made naturally by the cockroach, and two others carried by two different DNA origami structures. By mixing the combinations, it’s possible to cause the box to open using logic operations such as AND, OR, NOT (where the box will not open if a certain protein is present) etc., and that of course means that computational operations can be carried out—all inside of a living organism.

In their study, the researchers filled the origami box with a chemical that binds with hemolymph molecules, which are found inside a cockroach’s version of a bloodstream. All of the injected nanobots were imbued with a fluorescent marker so that the researchers could follow their progress inside the cockroach. They report that their experiments worked as envisioned—they were able to get the box to open or not, depending on the programming of the entire fleet of nanobots sent into the insect on multiple occasions under a variety of scenarios. Cleary impressed with their own results, the team suggests that similar nanobot computers could be constructed and be ready for trial in humans in as little as five years.

The "Gospel of Jesus’ Wife" Is Most Likely Not a Modern Fake

The "Gospel of Jesus’ Wife" Is Most Likely Not a Modern Fake | life's questions | Scoop.it

In 2012, Harvard researcher Karen King revealed the "Gospel of Jesus’ Wife."

A small piece of papyrus, the lightly worn document was written in Coptic Egyptian, with parts missing and ink faded, and didn’t say much. But what it did say, wrote Ariel Sabar in Smithsonian Magazine two years ago was enough to “send jolts through the world of biblical scholarship—and beyond.”

The fragment’s 33 words, scattered across 14 incomplete lines, leave a good deal to interpretation. But in King’s analysis, and as she argues in a forthcoming article in the Harvard Theological Review, the “wife” Jesus refers to is probably Mary Magdalene, and Jesus appears to be defending her against someone, perhaps one of the male disciples.

“She will be able to be my disciple,” Jesus replies. Then, two lines later, he says: “I dwell with her.”

The papyrus was a stunner: the first and only known text from antiquity to depict a married Jesus.


[...]

The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife is, so far as we know, an ancient text. What that means, exactly, is less clear. According to Sabar, Karen King “worried that people would read the headlines and misconstrue her paper as an argument that the historical Jesus was married. But the “Gospel of Jesus’s Wife” was written too long after Jesus’ death to have any value as biography.”

Extraterrestrial Intelligence: The Challenge of Comprehending E.T.'s IQ

Extraterrestrial Intelligence: The Challenge of Comprehending E.T.'s IQ | life's questions | Scoop.it
Although we often ponder the possible otherworldly morphology of extraterrestrials, a harder exercise is conceiving alien intelligences.

 

An alien might have four limbs, just like we humans. Or it might sport 17 tentacles, depending on evolutionary pressures. We can observe, quantify and describe such things. But how can we truly gauge the workings of an alien mind?

 

A new paper, publishing in Acta Astronautica in February, offers a preliminary exercise meant to get us to think outside our own box in assessing alien intellect. The exercise is called COMPLEX, which stands for "COmplexity of Markers for Profiling Life in EXobiology." The project compares various non-human intelligences—including animals, microbes and machines—to each other (rather than humans) and across several categories of behavior and mental capability.

 

"The goal of COMPLEX would be to prepare ourselves for assessing other species if we find life in space," said Denise Herzing, the study's author and a biologist at Florida Atlantic University. The research could be critical to astrobiology, which relies heavily on understanding Earthlings to gauge what's possible on other planets. Across the dizzying array of Earth's biota, "intelligence" is an awfully tricky thing to pin down. Historically, we've often defined intelligence in other beings based on how much it resembles our own. We collect sound patterns from whales that could qualify as language, seize upon rudimentary tool use by crows, and admire the social complexity of elephant societies.

 

Viewing these non-human intelligences through a human lens, however, might be shortchanging these creatures' intellectual abilities. Furthermore, when applied to non-Earthly life forms, our bias towards human intelligence's characteristics might really miss the mark.

 

Herzing's background has well-prepared her for such an astrobiological undertaking. She is the research director and founder of the Wild Dolphin Project, an organization that has studied a dolphin pod for nearly three decades to learn about the animals' behaviors, social structure and more. Many scientists consider dolphins (technically, porpoises; "dolphin" is a common name given to the animal) among the most intelligent creatures on Earth, perhaps on par with non-human primates.

Scientists Have Found That Memories Can Be Passed Down Through Generations In Our Genes

Scientists Have Found That Memories Can Be Passed Down Through Generations In Our Genes | life's questions | Scoop.it

New research from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. During the tests they learned that that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations.

 

According to the Telegraph, Dr Brian Dias, from the department of psychiatry at Emory University, said: ”From a translational perspective, our results allow us to appreciate how the experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.

 

“Such a phenomenon may contribute to the etiology and potential intergenerational transmission of risk for neuropsychiatric disorders such as phobias, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.”

This suggests that experiences are somehow transferred from the brain into the genome, allowing them to be passed on to later generations.

 

The researchers now hope to carry out further work to understand how the information comes to be stored on the DNA in the first place.

William S. Burroughs on the Occult Power of Dreams

William S. Burroughs on the Occult Power of Dreams | life's questions | Scoop.it

The above lecture was given in 1980 by William S. Burroughs at Naropa University, the higher-consciousness-academy started by the Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa in Boulder, Colorado. In it, Burroughs explores the shamanic potency of dreams, techniques for dream control and the importance of dreams for the evolution of humanity.

I listened to this last weekend in a fit of depression and it immediately calmed me down and cheered me up. Burroughs was a crucial thinker of the 20th century—especially in his non-fiction—and the breadth and clarity of his research and communication is so often overshadowed by his own “anti-legend.”

I’ll be teaching an online course on the methods Burroughs mentions in the video above, and then some, this weekend. Find out more about the class—entitled Lucid Dreaming, Dreamwork and Mastering the Dreamworld—here.

The Kybalion: Rhythm

The Kybalion: Rhythm | life's questions | Scoop.it

The great Fifth Hermetic Principle — the Principle of Rhythm — embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion; a to-and-from movement; a flow and inflow; a swing forward and backward; a pendulum-like movement; a tide-like ebb and flow; a high-tide and a low-tide; between the two-poles manifest on the physical, mental or spiritual planes. The Principle of Rhythm is closely connected with the Principle of Polarity described in the preceding chapter. Rhythm manifests between the two poles established by the Principle of Polarity. This does not mean, however, that the pendulum of Rhythm swings to the extreme poles, for this rarely happens; in fact, it is difficult to establish the extreme polar opposites in the majority of cases. But the swing is ever "toward" first one pole and then the other.

There is always an action and reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking; manifested in all of the airs and phenomena of the Universe. Suns, worlds, men, animals, plants, minerals, forces, energy, mind and matter, yes, even Spirit, manifests this Principle. The Principle manifests in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life history of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man.

Newly Found Megalithic Ruins In Russia Contain The Largest Blocks Of Stone Ever Discovered | TheSleuthJournal

Newly Found Megalithic Ruins In Russia Contain The Largest Blocks Of Stone Ever Discovered | TheSleuthJournal | life's questions | Scoop.it

An incredible discovery that was recently made in Russia threatens to shatter conventional theories about the history of the planet.  On Mount Shoria in southern Siberia, researchers have found an absolutely massive wall of granite stones.  Some of these gigantic granite stones are estimated to weigh more than 3,000 tons, and as you will see below, many of them were cut “with flat surfaces, right angles, and sharp corners”. 

 

Nothing of this magnitude has ever been discovered before.  The largest stone found at the megalithic ruins at Baalbek, Lebanon is less than 1,500 tons.  So how in the world did someone cut 3,000 ton granite stones with extreme precision, transport them up the side of a mountain and stack them 40 meters high?  According to the commonly accepted version of history, it would be impossible for ancient humans with very limited technology to accomplish such a thing.  Could it be possible that there is much more to the history of this planet than we are being taught?

This film is one of a three-part series of films produced by PBS, on the life and works of the great thinker and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Born on July 26, 1875, in Switzerland, Jung became interested in psychiatry during his medical studies. He saw that the minds of mentally deranged persons had similar contents, much of which he recognized from his own interior life, described in his autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections. His lifelong quest to understand the workings of the psyche led him to develop the analytical method of psychiatry. He proceeded by looking at the role in his patients' lives of what he termed the personal and collective unconscious, as expressed through dreams, myths, and outer events.

The sephiroth Kether

The sephiroth Kether | life's questions | Scoop.it

Of all the sephiroth of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, Kether is the most elevated and the most profound. In Hebrew, the word "Kether" means"Crown" - it is the sephirothic Crown of the Tree of Life, the first terribly divine emanation of Absolute Abstract Space. From Kether emanate Chokmah and Binah, and all three together constitute the Logoic Triangle of the Tree of Life, which is also known as the Holy Trinity in Christianity and other religions. The Trinity constitutes the esoteric core of our Being, and has been referred to as the Resplendent Dragon of Wisdom. Kether is the center of gravity of the Logoic Triangle, and is also the highest sephiroth of the Pillar of Equilibrium, which also includes Tiphereth, Jesod, and Malkuth.

 

Kether is the deepest part of our Inner Being, and is symbolized by a crown. He is often referred to as the First Logos, the Ancient of the Days, the Venerable Elder, and the Father who resides in secret. The Ancient of the Days is the occult of the occult, the good of the good, the kindness of kindnesses, the root of our Being. He is infinitely merciful, and carries absolute wisdom. The First Logos is sometimes referred to as the "Great Wind", since from the world of Kether the multitudes of humanity look like leaves fallen from trees, hurled by the terrible wind of the Ancient of the Days. In the world of Kether neither individuality, personality, nor any type of superior or inferior "I", exist. Although referred to as "He", it is important to note that that Elder of Days is androgynous, meaning He is man and woman simultaneously, and is the first and last synthesis of our Being.

 

Each person has his or her own particular crown, which is our own ray that connects us with the Absolute. Each of us has in the depths of his or her consciousness a distinct Venerable Elder, a particular Father who resides in secret. Blavatsky has said that there are as many Fathers in Heaven as there are human beings on earth. Kether is related with the first arcane of the Tarot, "The Magician." This arcane represents unity and that which begins. This unity is the Divine Monad, the First Logos. It is said that the hair and beard of the Ancient of the Days each have 13 locks. This reminds us of Arcane 13 of the Tarot, "Immortality," which is also intimately related with the First Logos. It is only by overcoming death, by completely eliminating the psychological ego and creating the solar bodies of our Being, that we can incarnate the Ancient of the Days. In other words, before incarnating Kether we must first completely realize the mysteries of the thirteenth arcane within ourselves, and overcome the frightful and terrible tests of this arcane in the internal worlds.

 

If we look at a diagram of the Tree of Life, we can see that Kether is a sephiroth that is very far away from Malkuth, the physical world. This is why we cannot easily understand or relate to our Father who resides in secret. Although objects and events that take place in Kether are real and mathematically exact, they seem abstract and remote to our minds. The religion of Buddhism has its center of gravity in Kether, and this is the reason why many people find it difficult to relate to and understand its concepts and teachings.

A process of continuous change or energy exchange with the future coming into existence photon by photon with each new photon electron coupling or dipole moment!

 

It would be illogical for beauty and symmetry to form out of the chaos and the uncertainty of life. But it would be logical for the imperfect symmetry of life to come out of a process of symmetry forming and breaking.

New form of matter created by scientists using light

New form of matter created by scientists using light | life's questions | Scoop.it

When we talk about matter we normally have in our minds something of substance that we can touch and hold. However, scientists at Harvard and MIT have questioned our beliefs about matter and the way we perceive light by discovering a way in which photons (a particle representing a quantum of light) can be used to form molecules.


This discovery according to Professor Mikhail Lukin of Harvard University goes against what has been accepted for centuries about the nature of light, which is that photons are elementary particles that do not have mass and do not interact with each other. The scientific team managed to create a medium where photons interact in such a strong way that they form molecules and create mass. Such a discovery could have many applications in the future once the mechanics of it are understood in a better way.


The first big help will be in quantum computers where they may be able to manipulate photons and perform logical operations at the molecular level. To take it even further in the future it may be possible to create complex three dimensional structures like crystals completely out of light. There is lots of research to be conducted on this new topic. After all, it is a new form of matter that we have never encountered before.  As Professor Lukin said: “We do this for fun, and because we’re pushing the frontiers of science”. It looks like the light sabre of Star Wars may become a reality after all… - See more at: http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-science-space/new-form-matter-created-scientists-using-light-00871#sthash.2mY5IdoH.dpuf

Tom Campbell: Virtual Reality: Why It's A Better Model Than String Theory and Holographic Universe

In this fascinating interview, physicist Tom Campbell, formerly with and now a consultant for NASA, discusses the current problems facing the scientific community's search for a Grand Unified Theory of Everything. String theory, holography, zero-point field theory, and other vogue models have failed to produce any significant results other than speculation, conjecture, and contradiction-hampered popular films such as 'What the Bleep Do We Know?' While Campbell doesn't merely criticize these theories, he offers a fresh interpretation of the root of the problem: the Double Slit Experiment.

Campbell also discusses information theory, virtual reality, process fractals, the quantum erasure experiments, video games, and the unavoidably primary role of conscious observers within our reality.

Through what he calls the data base, he also discusses accessing the Larger Consciousness System. Yes, His Big TOE derives a Supreme Being.

Tom has excelled as a working scientist, a professional physicist dedicated to pushing back the frontiers of cutting edge technology, large-system simulation, technology development and integration, and complex system vulnerability and risk analysis.
