2539Connecting calculative life with cloud microphysics
- Sep 5, 2005Where it really gets interesting and political is not just the
physics of clouds but the bio chemistry discussion about abiogenisis
merged in with that discussion. You think that the living earth
theory has a chance to become published? Mmm? In THIS country? Where
there is this debate about intelligent design and evolution? And
then add on climate change with the social order run by corporative
Plus the thermodynamics problem of LIFE. How it can tend to disorder
and then at the same time DAMPEN a living earth. Nucleotide complexes
in cloud microphysics was the key, but because the oceans are too
saline, the China paper modulations of clouds, causing them to become
asymmetrical, can no longer occur today. Perhaps one of the biggest
clues is implausible complexity of complete cells, but more that
there are no fossil evidence of cells to go with early life chemical
organizations which are found . . .

(----) Negative ions
------- Ocean with negative charges held in capacitive coupling
Here is another attempt to help you visualize the cloud microphysics
issue. Keep in mind, too, that the super cooled droplet, in a DC
field, is not pure water. It is a mixture of many chemicals found in
rainwater, which contains a pH of about 5.6, although the ion content
in a tropical storm surely has a greater content of ocean salts. So
these are the ions that will move in the DC field and change the
parasol asymmetry as it freezes in the cloud.
Now, what happens as convection occurs is not only does the water
turn to ice but also water vapor is added to the droplet, and that
addition occurs one molecule at a time. What may be overlooked by the
meteorological community is that water itself is electrical. Weakly
electrical, but electrical none the less. This electrical force is
called van der Walls force. It's the idea that the hydrogen atoms
will tend to lose their electron orbital more easily than the oxygen
atom. So it looks like this:
So if the super cooled water parasol is in a strong DC field, and the
ions in the parasol start to move, the manner with which additional
water molecules are added depend on that field, the chemistry in the
parasol, including the size, shape, mass and charge of the ions.
That's how DNA/RNA got the start toward intelligent design, because
the nucleotides began to act both as model and feedback--in a
massively parallel way, calculating toward a living earth.
DNA/RNA are chemicals that when you put them in a gel and apply a DC
field in a process called electrophoresis, the nucleotide complexes
move through the gel based on their size, shape, mass and charge.
This results in what are banding behaviors. After a color agent is
added, the researcher can tell the varying sequence content of a
particular strand of nucleotide.
What I am saying about the mechanical process of a living earth, at
least the initial stages of it, is that complexity was garnered by a
sorting of these complexes because that banding you see in the
electrophoresis gel is the same kind of mechanism which would cause a
different microphysics response. Specific responses in DC fields
would have specific cloud behaviors, and, hence, result in feedback
control and response, and then allow that successful control and
response to be repeated as a surviving dynamic. And yet still be able
to adapt. Over time, this results from countless transactions,
massively parallel, in incredible complexity to come from the
Complexity then evolved from these sortings. It's kind of like Gary
Kasporov playing Big Blue. While the computer may not be able
to 'think' like Kasporov, eventually enough number crunching lights
on the intelligent design. I think it is no accident that as you talk
about microbiological processes with the experts, they will tell you
how much of the chemistry is electrostatic in complexity. The point
is looking big to see small complexity--macro-biology to micro-.
BUT, it is equally important to see that these sortings no longer can
occur because the oceans are now too saline for there to be a signal
from the size, shape, mass and charge of the complexes. IOWs the DC
field will cause asymmetries in cloud droplets that are super cooled
and adding nucleotides will have little impact. But the biosphere by
now has evolved cellular life that by its behaviors in the oceans
impacting conductivities that have taken over the modulating role.
But the former supports the latter in terms of describing why climate
is a DAMPENED system, and, therefore, a determined one, not the
chaotic oscillator that in particular the baratropical community
considers in making forecast models.
The key definition of life involves metabolism and catabolism and
anabolism. I shorten this to life uses energy and repairs itself.
This living earth model I am describing explains how both can occur
together despite the second law of thermodynamics. That is, in fair
weather zones UV light combines with formaldehydes to make sugars,
and in cloudy zones the UV light is blocked and the sugars metabolize
back to CO2 and water. Or put another way the sugars are burned
slowly. Chemically, then, the tie has to be with the nucleotides, the
proteins, the lipids--repairing themselves.
The key is to appreciate that with a surface low there is
depressurization or it's like shaking your beer and opening it. This
causes the gas to come out of solution, and when it does the
nucleotides rise up to the surface of the ocean. This then ties in
metabolism or the burning of the sugars under the clouds with the
chemical elements of life. Energy and repair combine, symbiotically.
The nucleotide complex in the cloud parasols certainly were sorted
and became more complex. Intelligent design began to form to use
these dynamics more efficiently, and life fed back and controlled
climate, weather. But also the lipids and the proteins would also get
sorted, present chemical conditions more favorable and hence promoted
by the intelligent design. So when the Christain IDers say
implausible complexity supports God, not evolution, they
mathematically fail to describe the so-called 'weighted die.' The
evolutionist equally fails to describe design, making their science
more like myth. They both fail to describe the computer Big Blue
doing countless calculative number crunches against Kasporov--it's
not a too lucky of a move--it's a massively calculated one.
I know this discussion, which is controversial, seems to be a huge
digression relative to climatology, but when I show you pictures of
biological conditions, sometimes the argument is that the input
caused the biological condition, not the biological condition caused
the climate or the weather event. By showing what modulation is--what
its context and history is, you can appreciate what is input stimulus
to a living earth, and how it responds, and then how human activity
creates or not defects in living earth feedback controls.
Stephen Hawking said as the new century arose, "I think the next
century will be the century of complexity."
I agree. What's important to appreciate about the biological
complexity on atmospheric sciences is that ultimately it isn't a
chaotic system, from a mathematical standpoint, but a dampened one.
That is, there are periodic oscillators, chaotic oscillators, and
dampened ones. The biosphere acts to dampen climate. You see, every
storm simplifies, comes to 'rest' eventually, as a repeated set of
strands of nucleotide complexes. Those nucleotide complexes follow
the second law of thermodynamics, too--they can lose energy to the
point of the fact that you can freeze sperm and later it can make a
baby. But don't try freezing me, like Ted William's head--I am too
involved with the chaotic energy inputs on a living earth. Of course,
earth is an 'open' system, but you can still think about it in terms
of input and output and direction that the whole system is going. A
dampened system then becomes determinable by the behaviors of the
biosphere that modulate a living earth.
The bio chemists tried to solve organization with the Miller
experiments. But this was a failure, and can easily be proved by the
implausible complexity of handedness. Indeed, there are drugs today
that fail because the chemistry of the drug hinges on two hands, and
produces beneficial effects, and toxic ones too.
Massively parallel in cloud parasols--a calculative sorting like a
super computer, over huge timescales and transaction numbers--easily
solved the most difficult problems like handedness. Brings
