Sex, Science and Survival

The idea that reality evolves through an infinite dance of fundamental atomic geometrical shapes with an ethical purpose, became the basis of science in 3rd Century BC Greece. Plato’s Academy called it the Science for ethical ends. The Epicurean University called it the Science of universal love. The movement of the moon, echoing the atomic dance of life was seen to influence the female cycle. The ethical purpose, in this case, was held to explain a mothers love and compassion for children, giving sex a potential infinite ethical value.

Greek philosophers argued that religious beliefs were not part of the atomic purpose and others maintained that traditional cultural virtues contributed to the evolution of humanity. A crucial debate at that time, was that healthy human development required a scientific understanding of infinity. This understanding was associated with a sexually orientated joy of life associated with the eternal atomic dance creating a desire to love and protect children.

Greek science was invented to save civilization from the extinction process, recorded within the fossil record. In particular, the term ‘saviour’ applied to teachers of the Epicurean school. The Roman Government considered this idea as a threat to the stability of their Empire. However, it succumbed to Christian ideology during the 5th Century AD. By that time science was an instrument controlled by religious dogma for the purpose of military conquest rather that reasoning about the infinite ethical purpose of the geometrical atomic dance of life.

The mathematical understanding of the dance of life under religious control during the Dark Ages was about ensuring that a particular creed developed science to protect itself from military conquest. Sexual selection centred upon the physical attributes of the warrior class, echoing the primitive survival mindset of previous life on earth, most of which had become extinct. Infinite mathematical conjecture became completely banished within all scientific reasoning as a treasonable heresy. Giordano Bruno in 1600 was burnt alive by the Christian church in Rome for teaching about it at Oxford University.

The resulting supreme law of science became one of carcinogenic growth and development toward certain extinction and therefore cannot be considered as ethical. Einstein’s genius, who initially agreed with that unethical proposition, provided the solution to this problem. His “we can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking that we used when we created them” meant that science needed to alter its governing logic.

If humanity is to prosper it must confront modern science’s obsession about the certain extinction of humanity. That will involve a re-understanding of our sexual mindset. The infinite geometrical logic involved in the dance of life generates a powder keg of emotional thoughts and feelings beyond present scientific comprehension. With all the best intentions, religious concepts of infinity are of little pragmatic help. This is demonstrated by the current exposure of organized child molestation within the Christian Church and the degrading use of sex associated with acts of religious Islamic terrorism. The complexity and dynamics of sexual reality requires a much more profound and compassionate understanding.

Science is an incredible wonderment. However, its use of information and communication devices brought about a global 3D dysfunctional epidemic of false financial expectations that is unethical. The mass manufacture of such devices is transmitting dysfunctional information. It uses artistic know-how to generate false social anticipation by using a geometrical mathematics similar to the creation of addictions associated with poker machine functioning.

Science must relinquish its obsessive intolerance toward research into linking human evolutionary survival with infinite fractal logic. Under the present carcinogenic situation, all information and communication logic only obeys the laws of universal chaos. The restructuring of this obsolete law will allow relevant crucial scientific investigation to proceed. In quantum biological neurological cancer research, living information is known to flow in the opposite direction to the energies of extinction chaos. It is important to research the reasoning that living emotional information, by entangling with chaos energy, generates evolutionary universal consciousness.

The procedure that science could use to solve this problem is simple. It cannot wait for political leaders to draft out religious persuasive ideas concerning ethical immortality. That would be counterproductive, as it cannot be discussed scientifically. Religion and science are still locked into an emotional power struggle that the 17th Century philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, described as one leading to continual cycles of destructive conflict throughout the history of evolving civilizations. However, in the name of cancer research, relevant controversial geometrical scientific concepts can be programmed into a computer in order to obtain a human survival blueprint. At present this is impossible because modern science is innately carcinogenic and cannot generate such non-carcinogenic futuristic simulations.

Sigmund Freud described this scientific obsession with our extinction in his ‘Beyond the Pleasure Principle’. He described science as using inorganic chemistry to force organic life science back into an inanimate state. As the father of psycho-analysis he dedicated his life to freeing the human mindset from this emotional death-cult dictatorship. As an influential Freemason his attempt echoed the centuries old battle between the Christian Church and Freemasonry’s naive and failed attempt to free humanity from what it called the principle of destruction upholding science. The 1948 Freemasonry book ‘Freemasonry its Hidden Meaning’ clearly stated that its purpose was to free humanity from the yoke imposed by the Principle of Destruction. However, Freud’s condemnation of our death cult to extinction can now be used to help quickly design as a precise human survival blueprint.

The simple idea of putting the complex geometrical dance of life issue into a computer program to obtain a blueprint for seashell evolution succeeded during the 20th Century. IEEE, the world’s largest technological research institute, reprinted the discovery of the life-force in 1990. However, the application of 3rd Century science’s ethical logic concerning the cancer-free geometrical evolution of seashell growth and development through space-time is now in violation of prevailing human death cult logic. The seashell survival blueprint was acceptable but the human one remains an emotional religious and scientific heresy.

Any major religion perceiving that the religion of another culture uses a dysfunctional carcinogenic methodology to ensure its own survival will attempt to rectify that situation. Traditional beliefs and customs, based upon sound and colour excitement, fused with dysfunctional geometrical logic, similar to poker machine mathematical science, can only bring about dysfunctional desires to accelerate extreme cultural chaos in an attempt at such rectification.

However, as soon as the human survival blueprint simulations come into existence, then their first principle geometrical knowledge concerning the nature of carcinogenic growth and development can be used also for the benefit of the entire global population. The resulting wealth generated would be greater that the cost of destroying various national infrastructures. The ethical magnification of science will then become part of universal consciousness becoming aware of itself to shed its past carcinogenic disposition. As ancient Greek ethical logic argued, science can guide ennobling government for the health of the universe by becoming part of its healthy growth and development, thus avoiding extinction. That project is now in the hands of scientists and artists internationally promoting that idea as an integral part of the 21st Century Renaissance, which means literally, the rebirth of ancient Greek ethical science.

Israel, Technology Leader – Despite Defending Against Terrorist Neighbors and World Anti-Semites

Despite defending itself (diplomatically – with one-hand) against anti-Semites in the UN, Europe and the US; as well as its civilian population (physically -with its other hand) against external rocket and internal terrorist attacks – tiny Israel has somehow survived, perhaps even thrived, during the otherwise world-wide collapse of industry and technology – thanks to teen-age seriousness and a culture of entrepreneurial high-technology.

In spite of the constant drumbeat of negative press coverage by liberal extremists (Israel, their double-standard pariah state), there is one aspect of this lone democracy in the mid-East that gets scant attention – the country’s technological economy. In the face of the inordinate per-capita economic and manpower drain on its limited resources which are expended in its own defense, Israel has still achieved the highest percentage concentration of innovation and entrepreneurial ism in the world. Despite railings against investment in Israel by extremist anti-Israel, pro-Arab special-interest-groups, giant multinational technology companies and global investors have been setting up research and development laboratories in Israel for decades. Even in 2008, a year of chaos for the global economy, the per-capita R and D ventures in Israel exceeded that of the US by 2.5 times, Europe by 30 times, China by 80 times, and India by 350 times. And for start-up companies, Israel still achieves the highest concentration in the world, with more Israeli companies listed on the US NASDAQ stock exchange than from Europe, China, Japan, India and Korea – combined. In the percentage of its total economy that is spent on R and D – giving the world the benefits of its innovative creativity across a wide spectrum of science and technology, notably in the pharmaceutical and medical fields – Israel is among world leaders.

Much of Israel’s economic dynamism, and the way it appears to have weathered the global downturn, seems traceable to young-adult seriousness and government policies which cultivate a unique entrepreneurial spirit, including innovative immigration policies and a disproportionate investment in high technology. However, the fundamental foundation may well be its universal military training and national service program – this seems to energize an early maturation of Israeli citizenry. While teen-age students in other countries preoccupy themselves with taking a years pre-college vacation or deciding which university to attend, Israelis focus on the country’s variety of military units. And while students elsewhere are thinking about where to vacation or how to get into the most desired universities, Israelis prepare themselves for recruitment into elite units of the Israel Defense Forces. For example, learning to speak Arabic is a leg up toward a desired assignment in the Intelligence branch of service.

During the year before attaining draft age at eighteen, Israeli youths, male and female, must report to IDF recruiting centers for an initial one-day screening, which includes aptitude and psychological exams, individual interviews, and a medical evaluation. At the end of the day, a health and psychometric classification is determined, with service possibilities presented to the young candidate in a personal interview.

An interesting factor in the national attitude and aptitude of Israelis, those who complete their training program together, remain as a team throughout the many years of their regular and reserve service. Thus, their unit becomes like a second family, and Israelis remain in the military reserves until their mid-forties.

While it is difficult to get into the top Israeli universities (comparable to Harvard, Princeton or Yale) the IDF’s elite units are considered equivalent. The unit in which an applicant served tells prospective employers what skills and relevant experience the applicant may already possess.

At the age of 18, Israelis enter the army for a minimum of two to three years, and if they don’t reenlist, they typically enroll at a university. A massive percentage of Israelis thus enter university from army service, far more than any other country. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, almost half of Israelis are university-educated, among the highest percentages in the world. And according to a recent World Competitiveness Yearbook, Israel was ranked second among sixty developed nations on the criterion of whether “university education meets the needs of a competitive economy”.

By the time students finish college, they’re in their mid-twenties; some already having graduate degrees, with a large number married. “All this changes the mental ability of the individual,” says Gary Shainberg, an eighteen-year veteran of the British navy, and Vice President for Technology and Innovation at British Telecom. “They’re much more mature, they’ve got more life experience – and Innovation is all about finding ideas.” He reasons.

Gil Kerbs, an Intelligence unit alumnus, who works in Israel’s venture capital industry, comments,
“In Israel, one’s academic past is less important than the military past – a key question in every job interview, ‘Where did you serve in the army?’”

The advantage that Israel’s economy and its society gains from this national service experience was driven home by Shainberg, “There is something about the DNA of Israeli innovation that is unexplainable,” he says, “I think it comes down to maturity: nowhere else in the world where people work at technology innovation, do they also have to do national service.”

DNA, Intelligence and Evolution

There is an urgent need for a revolution in biological thinking; especially bio-evolutionary thought which is central to the philosophy of modern scientific biology. A revolution which must recognize that intelligence is natural both to our biotic and abiotic physical environment and that intelligent humans are legitimate spawns of an intelligent abiotic physical world-matrix.

Biological thinkers are the most naive of scientific thinkers and philosophers. In spite of recent advances in information technology, biological scientists are yet to appreciate that the age-old notion of intelligence as something “supernatural” or “spiritual” has been dispelled, once and for all, in science and technology of artificial intelligence programming and systems design. At the present status of knowledge and insight, the notion of intelligence in nature is no more a subject for metaphysical studies but one which can be studied “objectively” in the laboratory(or wherever the scientist chooses). The traditional knee-jerk response to any reference to intelligence in the problem of origin of life is a woefully outmoded one which, it would appear, biologists are the most committed of physical scientists. One suspects that the need to hold grounds against religious “creationists” and not yield an inch to them in the age-old conflict of religion and science is the reason why the obvious insights afforded by computer and software engineering is not being fully exploited to the advantage of the biological sciences, especially the field of molecular genetics.

The concept of intelligent design in evolution of species has been brought within the boundaries of what science can fruitfully investigate. Pre-scientific cultures needed God or nature spirits to explain intelligent design, but modern science can begin investigating the concept in the possibility that the structure of DNA might have some form of intelligence code programmed into it. How the program was written, or by whom, is the subject for another level of investigation, but the fear of the consequences of yielding ground to ignorantly gloating creationist philistines is not enough reason to turn a blind eye to the glaring evidence that we live in a world ruled over by intelligence. It is interesting that physicists have been in the forefront of revolutionary thinking, which begins to investigate wholly in the terms of the language of science, how we can begin re-conceptualizing our world in the terms of knowledge and insight we have acquired from our foray into information and computer science technology.

Computer scientists beginning with Alan Turing have demystified the concept of intelligence. The order of physical systems can be symbolically reproduced and symbols manipulated by operations of logic to suggest alternative orders. That is what DNA has been doing in the eons of biological evolution; that is the essence of creative intelligent activity. The logic of re-conceptualization of DNA function in terms of syntax-driven intelligence processes is unassailable. It is only a matter of time before we begin unraveling the secrets of that inscrutable-faced intelligent robotic molecule, DNA. The earlier we live behind the prejudices accumulated from a history of conflict between religion and science, the better for us all.

A well known evolutionist recently demonstrated the power of prejudice in the matter of recognition of the special status of intelligence in nature by his contribution to a debate over the possibility of intelligent life in outer space. He tried to ridicule those who believe that if intelligent life could arise on the earth then it must have arisen in several other parts of the universe by drawing a spoofing analogy in the argument that if elephant trunks have evolved on earth then it must also have evolved elsewhere in the universe. His argument arises from the misconception that intelligence is just another thing in nature like elephant trunks. He couldn’t have been more mistaken. His analogy was like trying to compare the fundamental element hydrogen to chocolates in the grand cosmic order of things!

So innately fundamental and ubiquitous is intelligence in the biotic and abiotic environment that we tend to take its manifestations for granted like fish might be justified in taking water for granted and failing to be impressed by its manifestations. The difference between symbol creating and information communicating functions of the human mind in human culture, and the DNA powered culture of biology is only superficial. We are dealing with two manifestations of the same principle in nature. The naivete of biological scientists who entertain the notion that the complex behavioral skills of biological systems are mere products of chance and accident is remarkable. Ant brains do calculus; cells do arithmetic, implement logic operations, information storage and retrieval. Birds navigate by observing the stellar constellations. Bees manage the engineering complexities of solar navigation. One could go on endlessly. We are like fish in water. We are so used to seeing the evidence of intelligent design around us, that we have grown blind in “scientific objectivity” to its implications to any theory of “origin of species” we may dare dream up.
