I am asked how can the tracks of a hurricane over history be an
example of a living earth.
The better question is to ask why are Boyle's law vectors similar to
static field vectors?
For instance, air moves from high pressures to low. But in so
moving, the winds cause the place before it to become low pressure.
Since this movement occurs on the surface of a sphere, these
movements appear as periodic waves. And because of viscosity, these
movements are not solvable. But more importantly, because these
movements, by and for themselves and Boyle's, they cannot be
controlled. This becomes EXTREMELY important as far as gaia is
concerned. That is, you cannot have life without a feedback that you
Well, not only does a high pressure flow to a low, but like charges
repel and opposites attract one another. And since the dielectric of
water is about 80 times that of air, all it takes to create a
coupling between air pressure and static fields is the fact that
fair area, high pressure regions generally lack water in the form of
clouds in the air. That means that DC fields will not well exist in
cloudy, convective regions while at the same time in fair weather
they would, and that further means that with the movement of clouds,
you have the movement of electrical patterns.
This is not a point to be taken lightly, because unlike Boyle's laws
finding great limitation in viscosity, static fields can be
modulated locally with fixed features, and hence the macrobiosphere
can modulate and feedback on to that location living earth
conditions. Further, globally it can solve the problem of the earth
EMF and the whisking of the atmosphere by the solar wind, which too
is a complex and chaotic a dynamic problem that can only be solved
with ever changing and refined models which is what gaia was as to
cloud parasols and nucleotides. It was a model based on a massively
parallel super computer like set up, global in reach and toward
solving the problem of the earth EMF, which modernly Einstein called
the most difficult problem in `physics'. I would simply say it is a
problem which will never by solved like we think of in algebra, but
it IS solved, by a living earth. And it is a problem that the
fascists want, desperately, to UN-solve, because they think it
hampers their profits or their economies. It is a fine example of
the calculation powers winning over the human mind, much like
Kasporov has been defeated by Big Blue.
Me? I am a Big Blue programmer. I know all the machine's weaknesses
and strengths and would be able to play the machine as long as there
as a game. Sadly, one of the things that a living earth modulates is
the fact that the sun grows more luminous. That was Carl Sagan's
thing, you know, asking why we were not an ice block 5 billion years
ago, nor like a gas ball now. Some would think it is luck, like
falling between Venus and Mars, but I know these things are not by
chance over many transactions and many changes. There is a law of
large numbers to consider, plus the fact that Venus somehow has
avoided its atmosphere getting whisked away like what has occurrd on
Indeed, with ambient winds will eventually always will there be the
electrical state that you need to modulate, which the earth does and
has modulated, to its liking.
