Biomass vs cultural ‘mass’ accumulation – any analogies?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , , , — zankaon @ 6:20 pm

Once life takes hold of a planet, might it almost be impossible to eradicate it? Mars would seem a counter example, due to limited biomass, as indicated by hemitite abundance.

For our planet, with it’s abundance of surface water, and long period of time, biomass has built up. Even extinctions might be irrelevant to such build up. For even extreme event of oceans drying up, still anaerobes in deep sediments would seem survivable in some form.

Analogously, once culture has taken hold of a planet, might it be almost impossible to eradicate; that is, if sufficient cultural ‘mass’ i.e. amount, has accumulated? Might this even be independent of it’s biological originator species? In other words, would culture continue to grow and açcumulate, of it’s own accord? Homo culturus, next in our descent? see SRM at  zankaon

For example, for so-called imachina, might a set or network continue to grow, adapt, and evolve? Might it so evolve, without being aware of it? Or would perception have to evolve; wherein perception requires judgment.

As a practical example, one might consider the perception for a driver of how fast a road curve is breaking, having been impaired by an alcoholic drink. Such judgment (i.e. perception) has been temporally ablated, rendering such biological organism to the status of just a machine, which can see, but not intrepret the situation.

For imachina, might the equivalent be to comment out a sub-routine? However perception i.e. judgment, for imachina, might seem to be modeled as involving adjustments to statistical weighing of internodes. But would this have to be of a general and widespread nature, and for a very complex imachina, or network? Is server software already rendering some judgment (rudimentary perception of a situation?) in regards to incomplete applets, yet functional because of a generic substitution?

Might it seem that culture could continue to evolve and accumulate, even without being aware of it, or of a sense of overall selfness?

How old are cometary orbits? Ejected gas giant etiology?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — zankaon @ 4:12 pm

Since mass loss would seem slight, might a comet’s orbit have originated billion of years ago? Perhaps destabilized from early Oort cloud formation, by an ejected gas giant? So might a collisional effect for Uranus, long period comet orbit formation, and any gas giant ejection from our system, have a relationship? Would such gas giant planet be detectable in infrared, and distinguishable from a sister star red dwarf?

Internal luminosity source for Jovian cloud bands?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , , — zankaon @ 11:53 am

If no external lighting source for apparent brightness of Jovian cloud bands, might such lighting be from emission radiation of ionized plasma at a somewhat deeper layer? Might such emission radiation have some association with ionized gas (plasma) moving along so described magnetic field lines at a somewhat deeper layer? Is there any relationship of luminosity intensity to density of so-called magnetic field lines?

Might any variation of band luminosity be due to cloud band density, and perhaps composition, rather than variation in luminosity source?
In an informal sense, might one entertain an analogy of a luminous corona associated with mass injection and magnetic re-connect i.e. stressed magnetic field? And adapt such processes to deeper jovian layered plasma?

Might also there be no ice crystals in upper cloud layers; since if there were, then any alleged backlighting would seem to result in refraction observable effects.

Calculations and gravitational potential tapering – a problem? Motion for our Sun, as part of a binary system? Parallax resolution?

Might gravitational potential, instead of inversely dropping off linearly, perhaps have a different (exponential like?) tapering? Differently, does the electric field, and also radioactivity, have a sudden drop off? Thus is there perhaps precedence for differences in field strength, and decreases in other phenomenon?

Might such conjecture be consistent with the continued apparent gravitational binding of Proxima centauri in it’s triple star system, even though seeming, through calculations, being too far from other 2 stars? Likewise is gravitational potential seemingly too weak, via calculations, to keep our moon in orbit? Hence might our gravitational potential have a different gradual tapering, not reflected in our calculations or modeling?

Also might any sister red dwarf star actually still be in orbit with our sun, if still far out in weak tapering gravitational potential; not unlike Proxima centauri? If so, then a center of mass for such binary stellar system would be much closer to our sun. Hence might there be an additional detectable motion for our sun, if part of such binary system? Might parallax of a masked sun, giving apparent shifting position of background stars, actually be a composite of earth’s and sun’s respective orbit/motion?

For example, one could compare parallax results for vernal and autumnal equinoxes, which should be periodic. If not, then consistent with such additional parallax being due to a binary stellar companion.

Might one re-measure and reconsider Doppler spectroscopy radial velocity line of sight technique to detect any inapparent periodic frequency shifting  (of absorption lines) due to sun’s position at line of sight opposite sides of any motion? So rather than attributing such radial motion solely to our gas giant (~ 1/1000 of solar mass), might one have a larger component contribution from such considered center of mass for a binary stellar system?

For hot Jupiter’s, periodicity is over days. For our sun, might it be for over years, consistent with period of red dwarf companion?

Since approximately 1000 Jupiter masses equal mass of sun; thus for red dwarf of .04 solar mass, then ~40 Jupiter masses. Where would the center of gravity be, for such binary system? And what would motion for our sun look like, for such binary system? One could seemingly work both ways, deriving mass of system from doppler radial velocity effect; or conversely.

For movement of Sun, because of a binary companion for such system, one might consider a simplified circular motion; then would entire system (planets, asteroid belt, Kuiper belt, any neutrino belt, Oort cloud) all shift over a period of years (?), for a red dwarf binary companion with period of years? That is, most of mass (95% for our ex.) is associated with our sun; hence such motion of sun would have associated changing center of mass.

Would rate of parallax changing give period of such primary stellar motion? Also no adjustments to gravitational potential values for various objects’ locations, for system moving as a whole, for massive sun’s location. So no relative change for inside overall system; but for comparison to outside environment, sun’s change in location would have effect of gradual change in curvature. Not unlike a rogue black hole binary moving into our system?

Discontinuity for infinity?

Topological change to a manifold? Is discontinuity possible for such depicted symbol, and as utilized in SRM (Spiral Rotation Model), and also for larger platonic world? What are relevant respective sets, and orders of infinity/infinitesimals?

Fermion mass spectrum and color interaction

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , — zankaon @ 7:20 pm

For alleged exponential extremes of fermion mass spectrum for very early universe, since (?) SU(3) is still suitable, might one also have an increase in rate of quark flavor changing, and of rate of quark gluon emission and absorption, and of rate of gluons’ interaction, and more so for massive gluons? Hence a more entropic generation descriptiveness?
Also recent pentaquark discovery would be consistent with higher generations i.e. fermion mass spectrum. TMM

Phoenix arising again from the cosmic ashes?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , , , — zankaon @ 7:15 pm


Nuclear synthesis occurs for over 90 seconds, or 10² in comparison to Planck time of 10^-43 seconds, thus seemingly 45 orders far removed from r_m modified global radius minimum of modified global trajectory and of 3-volume minimum. Still 31 orders from Electro-weak energy scale of ~10^-12 seconds to Planck scale? Nevertheless cosmic time i.e. large scale peculiar velocity, Hubble parameter (changing 3-volume), and fermion mass spectrum are all exponentially changing, in SRM Spiral Rotation Model; thus shortening cosmic time duration to high entropy transition stage of r_m. The latter an entropic caldera of quanta interactions and extreme manifold deformations i.e. sea of gravity waves? Is this the ‘world’ we came from; forged in a cosmic crucible?

Earthquake clustering versus unbeknownst rheology in stress reduction

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: — zankaon @ 4:49 pm

More recently southern California has been quite quiet in regards to major earthquakes. Was Landers the last major quake? Earthquake clustering, like for prime numbers, would seem most typical. So recurrence of quakes on a given fault, or fault ‘field’, or larger regional fault zone, would not seem uniform.

However have other possibilities been overlooked, such as stress reduction along faults, without our awareness? One has the historical Palmdale bulge probable vertical off loading relief of stress. Might one have a similar, but unbeknownst process, but underneath mountains? For example, did the Lander’s earthquake affect the height of nearby Mt San Jacinto?

So could one use lasers (Lidar) etc. to create a database of such mountain ranges’ height on an ongoing basis, to see if there is any unbeknownst releasing of stress for such earthquake prone region? Thus might such region be rheologically less quiet than it seems?

Is dendritic play the thing? Stochastic resonance?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , , — zankaon @ 2:03 pm

Might more rapid firing of cortical neuron of pyramidal brain tissue reflect a background activity corresponding to dendritic interactions per se? Whereas slower firing, associated with consolidation of memory, might  be more associated with other spatial and temporal neuronal functioning. Might enhanced dendritic density, and functioning, be associated with enhanced background activity, and associated with enhanced plasticity?

Might this be an example of stochastic resonance, wherein background activity (noise-like) enhances the signal to noise ratio; such as for our activities, electronic circuits etc.? That is, might background ongoing activity of dendrites themselves provide a josling of the system, so that it responds more rapidly to a lower frequency signal, associated with a retained neuronal pattern i.e. consolidated memory?

A chronometer beating out integers?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , , , , — zankaon @ 7:07 pm

In just an abstract sense, somewhat similar to Turing tape (but with cardinality of integers), with no beginning nor ending? Thus in SRM model, for mapping of integers to always exponentially changing MTCs’ (Modified time constructs) with positive definite increments, could one just use 1 s and 0 s on Turing tape, a simple basic generic model for software description? If so, then might an overall description of SRM’s evolving System, seem like a basic software deterministic description (but no writing nor erasing); however with no beginning, together with endlessness?  apeiron
