CHILDHOOD’S CONUNDRUM Looking inside the Black Box
On the Morning of August 18th, 2011 NASA called an emergency press conference. The conference dealt with solar activity and new information about the charged particles that can affect life here on earth. They were now able to see how CME’s form and how they engulf the earth. The power of the sun again has scientists in awe and NASA was saying that it would be advantageous for them to send a mission to the sun in 2018 and perhaps various missions to Comets and Asteroids.
It looks as if there is a mission now to actually explore the very things that contribute to life and death on this planet. From there they may be able to undertake the complex make-up of the human cell, where we come from and how we are affected by the movements of celestial bodies, the planets, the stars and the moon.
It is complex astronomy, proving the fundamentals of astrology, and giving answers to the mysteries of creation itself. The core intelligence of our design can no longer be buried or kept in a black box.
A “black box” is a scientific term for systems that have inner workings that are so complex they are unknown or unexplainable. While the human form has been studied and its parts have been explained with anatomical facts and genetic sequencing the human cell is complex and to Darwin and his colleagues it was a “black box” because every living cell has infinite super-sophisticated molecular machines.
There is that old religious scripture that says in the beginning was the word, the word was with God, the word was God. Was just words that organized the chaotic components of the universe? Or was that “word” a frequency or a signal that took place that cells and molecular structures responded to. The asteroids, the comets, and the Sun were all present at the creation and the frequencies of each planet were tuned and fine tuned to open the channel for creation.
More reports from science are leaning towards this speculation.
Astrobiological explanations have blanketed the mainstream lately giving us hints and clues that the probability of life everywhere in the Universe is highly likely. There are still the rigid scientists that want some of this speculation to go away. It seems that the universe is beginning to become less mysterious and more indicative of how we became living breathing beings on this planet. Dr. Michael Callahan, from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center had recently given another firm push into the idea that the earth was seeded by Comets and Meteors.
Panspermia had been talked about since the 1960’s, however the idea of living cells coming from space was dismissed based on the possibility of contamination from earthly contact.
A lot of what Callahan has discovered can be found in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
The team found adenine and guanine in samples extracted from twelve carbon-rich meteorite. These are two of the nucleobases of Deoxyribonucleic acid. The other two are cytosine and thymine. Together, the four carry the encoding that makes possible life on Earth—and possibly other places around the Universe.
This could mean that there would be no need to look for aliens because we are the aliens.
According to the research, the discovery “gives support to the theory that a “kit” of ready-made parts created in space and delivered to Earth by meteorite and comet impacts assisted the origin of life.” The obvious implication of this discovery is that, if life blocks are spread through the universe through comets and asteroids that impact on planets, the possibilities of life that uses the same blocks on other planets is a very real one.
When I lived in Buenos Aries I had the privilege of knowing one of Argentina’s best artists. Quiqe Garcia lived in an old building and had all of his surreal art hanging on the roof. One of the paintings that caught my eye was that of a table with two eggs on it. There were two hands above the table.
He called it “Genesis” and told me about how he was inspired by a French writer who wrote a science fiction short story about an astronaut that landed on earth before there were any animals, or humans living on it. I wasn’t sure if the astronaut was an alien, but the alien astronaut looked over the earth and thought that it was a horrible desolate place. He wrote in a diary that he couldn’t believe anyone or anything would want to be on the earth because the air was hard to breathe, the water was bitter to drink and the oceans were riddled with an odorous goo that made him sick. In disgust he spat into the ocean and left.
I wanted so badly to figure out what that story was really about because it reminded me of the Bradbury book A Sound of Thunder, a story dealing with complexity theory and how all it takes is one small event to snowball into major evolutionary upheaval.
Finally I found the story “Gene’se” it was written in 1958 by Francis Carsac and it puts a few things into perspective about creation and whether or not it was directed or accidental.
“The spacecraft made its seventh lap around the third planet: vast, desolate stretches of land, formidably still mountain ranges and empty plains. A lifeless world, absolutely sterile, no different from its only satellite which had already been visited. Yet, there were still the seas. The astronaut walked along the beach, thinking, ‘These are the first and last steps which will forever mark this sand.’ Floating in the foam of the sea there was nothing but a mucous of organic compounds in which, at point blank range, the detector was unable to pick up any trace of life. Disdainfully, without the least pang of conscience, he spat into the sea”
I do not know if Carsac was indicating that he was a believer in Panspermia or even alien tinkering with earth, but he most certainly didn’t illustrate directed Panspermia, that is Panspermia combined with intelligent design for the sole purpose of having humans roaming around .
I believe that now would be a great time to start a movement where an organization produces a petition to science, and to the education curriculum for the option of teaching students the scientific idea that this planet was seeded and that human forms evolved over time.
This is the halfway point between the creationism and evolution arguments that people believe should be included in the school curriculums. It is the halfway point because Panspermia or the seeding of the earth can open the door for discussions about evolution, Darwin’s black box, and directed Panspermia, that could have been engineered by a God or even a group of interplanetary scientists or astronauts.
Astrobiology if taught properly can be the starting point for meaningful discussion about evolution and the gradual creation provided by a God, and alien or even natural means without any ties to a deity.
Darwin once wrote that
‘The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble to us; and I for one must be content to remain an Agnostic.”
In other words when it came down to the idea of creation, he really didn’t know what happened.
I contend that we should not have such a limited scope on our possibilities and now is the time to strike while the iron is hot. In my opinion the talk of exploring the sun the asteroids and comets for information about our origins is our first step in understanding that we have not been alone in the universe. The action of scientists n the matter of Panspermia whether directed or accidental strengthens the argument that life exists outside of the Earth, because the building blocks for that life are being smashed into planets all the time. Life seems to be a constant in the universe and we owe to our progeny to preserve it. We owe it to our progeny to dispel the mythologies and create a healthy medium between the dogmas of religion and the critique and rigidity of science.
So far there are two philosophies being argued about how we came to be. Opening up that black box is the third solution and I believe we are ready to see what is inside.
