On The Origin Of The Home Of COVID-19 - 33

SARS-CoV-2 Reincarnation
Since those quantum physics doods have deduced that "The Quantum Soul" exists in the microtubules, not wholly unlike the senator who informed us that the internet is just a bunch of inner tubes with thoughts in it, I suppose we may now be able to solve the mystery of the origin of SARS-CoV-2:

"... a theory of consciousness ... consistent with Eastern spiritual traditions ... Eastern philosophy and other spiritual traditions ... afterlife, reincarnation ... out-of-body experiences ... The quantum soul." 

(Small Brains Considered - 7). Think about all those mysteries concerning where the  original coronavirus came from, especially the one with eastern spiritual state of mind that was reincarnated in "Jina" ("An arihant is also called a jina" - Wikipedia) ... see video 2 below.

Finally we know how SARS-CoV-2 communicates like microbes (How Microbes Communicate In The Tiniest Language) and reproduce reincarnate themselves and have an afterlife and out-of-body experiences all over the universe ... it's their Jina quantum soul ("yeah, that's the ticket") /snark

Denying that we don't know is a place on The Toxic Bridge To Everywhere (On The Origin Of The Home Of COVID-19, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32).

"It's pronounced Jina ..."


Admitting that "we don't know" is an exit from the toxic bridge to everywhere ...

Small Brains Considered - 7

Fig. 1 The Priest & Albert
I. Background

In the previous post of this series a couple of well-known physicists (Penrose, Hameroff) indicated that they hypothesize:

"... a theory of consciousness ... consistent with Eastern spiritual traditions ... Eastern philosophy and other spiritual traditions ... afterlife, reincarnation ... out-of-body experiences ... The quantum soul." 

(Small Brains Considered - 6, emphasis added). This is completely in accord with some of the criticisms and observations made for years here on Dredd Blog.

One of those physicists along with other physicists once had a different view concerning the fundamental underpinnings of a cosmology and physics that courted mysticism:

"...we have a kind of metaphysical belief that there are laws of nature that are outside time and those laws of nature are causing the outcome of the experiment to be what it is. And laws of nature don't change in time. They're outside of time. They act on the system now, they acted on the system in the same way in the past, they will act the same way in a year or a million or a billion years, and so they'll give the same outcome. So nature will repeat itself and experiments will be repeatable because there are timeless laws of nature.

But that's a really weird idea [for scientists] if you think about it because it involves the kind of mystical and metaphysical notion of something that is not physical, something that is not part of the state of the world, something that is not changeable, acting from outside the system to cause things to happen. And, when I think about it, that is kind of a remnant of religion. It is a remnant of the idea that God is outside the system acting on it."

(If Cosmology Is "Off," How Can Biology Be "On?", 2013, quoting of Dr. Lee Smolin at The Perimeter Institute). But, as we will see further along in this post, this cognitive incursion into modern physics even changed the shape of Einstein's cognition.

II. Exceptional Priests

That may seem like a radical departure, but it isn't.

The whole world of cosmology comes from mystics, beginning with the priest who originated the Big Bang mystical hypothesis all the way to those who name microbes:

In a cultural 'priestdom' the high priests can be priests of science, or priests of religion, because the Greek word 'presbyteros' ('priest') simply means 'elder' or 'senior'.

The priest who hypothesized The Big Bang was literally a priest, but in addition to that, was a 'presbyteros' of science (Georges Lemaître).

A "priest", "elder", or "senior" can easily be applied to technocracy:

"Technocracy itself is an immortality ideology that, although it is coupled with materialism, has as part of its makeup an element of the magical and a belief that new tools and innovations provide solutions to both the small day-to-day problems of life and the larger problems of human happiness and mortality. Technology is entrancing, and, functionally, technologists become creators of magic and the wizards of today, claiming the same authority over technology that doctors claim over human health or shamans over the cursed. This has always been so, going back to ancestral peoples who learned to use fire, tools, wind, and wheels. Even in subsistence societies, technology has a greater impact on a variety of sociological variables than do supernatural or religious beliefs (Nolan and Lenski 1996)."
...
[I repeat]"Even in subsistence societies, technology has a greater impact on a variety of sociological variables than do supernatural or religious beliefs (Nolan and Lenski 1996)."

(The Machine Religion). The nomenclature of the culture of the priest who hypothesized the big bang is of the same "language family" and nomenclature of the culture of the current commercialized scientific community.

...

The big bang 'presbyteros' (Lemaître), spoke and wrote in a 'presbyteros language' which the laity did not understand (Use of Latin in the Roman Catholic Church, Ecclesiastical Latin, The Day the Mass Changed, How it Happened and Why).

That form of 'communication' spilled over into the 'presbyteros language' realm of the science of the day too.

...

Eventually the communication became intense, like the time when scientific teaching was severely imposed upon  by ecclesiastical teaching (Galileo vs. the Pope).

That tension waxed and waned from time to time, but the language of the scientific realm still remains mysterious to the scientific laity.

Upon occasion the scientific laity persuaded some of those of the scientific 'presbyteros' that there were various anomalies of doctrine, so efforts toward better ways of communication emerged from time to time:

"Since at least the 17th century (and mostly because of Newton), natural scientists have stopped using formal or final causes to explain natural phenomena ... except in biology. This was first pointed out by Colin Pittendrigh (Pittendrigh, C. S. Behavior and Evolution) (ed. by A. Rose and G. G. Simpson), Yale University Press, 1958), who coined the term "teleonomy" to refer to the kind of teleological phenomena observed in biological processes."

(On The Origin of Genieology - 2). The language of the scientific 'presbyteros' is still with us (It's All Greek To Me), but to a lesser degree:

"Scientific names are used to describe various species of organisms in a way that is universal so that scientists around the globe can readily identify the same animal. This is called binomial nomenclature, and many of the scientific names are derived from the Latin name of the organism. The scientific name is broken down into the genus name, which comes first, followed by the specific species name.

...

Modern binomial nomenclature was adopted by Swedish physician and botanist Carolus Linnaeus in the 18th century. The reason for the proposition of the two-part name was to create a code that more readily identified specific species without the use of long descriptors that could be prone to subjectivity."

(The Importance of Scientific Names for Organisms). The power to name things is not all it is cracked up to be (Why do scientists use Latin when they name organisms?, "Scientists started using Latin back in the Middle Ages"). 

The reason 'Middle Ages' scientific 'presbyteros speak' is the same today as it was then is because the scientific 'presbyteros' can (if they couldn't they wouldn't).

(The Doll As Metaphor - 6). The Big Bang "takes the cake" for imaginative cognition.

III. 'Mystical' In Large Part Means 'We Don't Know'

"We don't know" is an honest statement, it is not an admission of ignorance. 

Why then, would scientists want to convert the unknown into some type of mystical ignorance

Not knowing is fine so long as it is a true condition, and it is better than made-up mystical ignorance or 'un-truths'. 

And not knowing at a given time hands the matter over to scientific research. 

That is the proper way to process the unknown, to be patient and careful in research mode so as to increase knowledge rather than increase ignorance.

IV. Mysticism Overthrew Einstein Too

For example, when the priest scientist Lemaître made up the big bang hypothesis which challenged scientific papers in scientific journals of that time, Einstein said of the priest's hypothesis:

"Lemaître described his theory as 'the Cosmic Egg exploding at the moment of the creation'; it became better known as the 'Big Bang theory', a phrase originally used sarcastically ... This challenged the established finite-size static universe model proposed by Einstein. Einstein refuted Lemaître’s theory, saying 'your math is correct, but your physics is abominable' ... [BUT Einstein later said it was] 'the most beautiful and satisfactory explanation of creation to which I have ever listened.'”

(see link at Fig. 1). We don't hear much about that do we now?

V. The Dolls

In a fairly recent snarky post I poked fun at an article on the Space blog (The history of the universe: Big Bang to now in 10 easy steps), to wit:

"The Big Bang was not an explosion in space, as the theory's name might suggest. Instead, it was [natural doll and selection doll quivering, causing] the appearance of space [space doll] everywhere in the universe [universe doll], researchers have said. According to the Big Bang theory, the universe was born [dolls R born] as a very hot, very dense, single point in space [space doll and universe doll are hot, dense, and single].

Cosmologists are unsure what happened before this moment"

(Quantum Biology - 9, data in brackets '[]' emphasized). Notice the reality that cosmologists (mystics) "are unsure what happened before this moment" when "the Cosmic Egg [exploded] at the moment of the creation" ... in other words they don't know but exploded into doll play any way:

"When the universe [doll] was very young — something like a hundredth of a billionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second (whew!) [the time doll was not conjured until shortly after that] — it underwent an incredible growth spurt. During this burst of expansion, which is known as inflation [inflation doll], the universe [doll] grew exponentially and doubled in size at least 90 times [what about space doll and environment doll?]."

First Doll Uterus

"The universe [doll] was expanding, and as it expanded, it got cooler and less dense [enlightenment]," David Spergel, a theoretical [doll] astrophysicist at Princeton University in Princeton, N.J., told SPACE.com. After inflation, the universe [doll] continued to grow, but at a slower rate [diet doll]."

"As space [doll] expanded, the universe [doll] cooled and matter formed [matter doll]."

"Light chemical elements were created [light chemical dolls] within the first three minutes of the universe [doll's] formation. As the universe [doll] expanded, temperatures cooled and protons and neutrons collided [proton and neutron dolls] to make deuterium [deuterium doll], which is an isotope of hydrogen [of course dummy]. Much of this deuterium [deuterum doll] combined to make helium [helium and shelium dolls]."

"For the first 380,000 years after the Big Bang [bang doll], however, the intense heat [heat doll] from the universe's creation [heat doll was hot] made it essentially too hot for light to shine [it's dark inside hot dolls]. Atoms [atom dolls] crashed together with enough force [force doll] to break up into a dense, opaque plasma of protons, neutrons and electrons that scattered light like fog [fog doll]."

(ibid, Quantum Biology - 9, data in brackets '[]' emphasized). Yes, I was snarky ([read between the lines square brackets]) about the progression from "we don't know" into "the appearance of space" all of a sudden. 

VI. Closing Comments

Small Brains Considered - 6

Fig. 1 C6H6N5O3S1
Codon/Amino Acid Atoms

What are our brains composed of at the lowest levels, the quantum physics levels?

That would be atoms, especially in our DNA, as shown by the formulas which reveal how many and what type of atoms are in our genome.

Review the appendices in previous posts (e.g. A, B, C, D, and E), and the graphics and link at Fig. 1.

So, "what do those atoms have to do with small brains?", you may be wondering (see more views of those atoms in Appendix SMC-6).

Well, large brains wonder about small brains, even when they shouldn't do so in an anthropomorphic way:

"if I were a small protein sitting on a replicating chromosome, could I tell which DNA segment belongs to which sister DNA? Physicists like questions like that, whether they are rooted in physics or biology."

(Quantum Biology - 13). That was a question posed by a writer, Suckjoon Jun at Small Things Considered blog.

It would not matter if Suckjoon was a human or a small protein, because the atoms depicted in Fig. 1 make up brain material, if any, and make up all of a small protein, except the small brain it does not have.

In other words, Suckjoon would not have a brain if he played with a doll (pretending he was a protein "sitting" on an imaginary "replicating chromosome").

A chromosome doesn't replicate (it is replicated), a ribosome does that replicating.

How does Suchjoon think he makes scientific sense by thinking that the Carbon atoms (e.g C5) in a molecule of a protein, or the entire group of atoms in a protein (Fig. 1), can think?

All of those atoms are made of protons and neutrons encircled by electrons, none of  them are alive, none of them are conscious, and all of them are completely abiotic and inanimate:

Regular readers know that in various and sundry posts on the Dredd Blog System we have bemoaned the dearth of research within evolutionary circles concerning the subject of abiotic evolution or Abiology.

I have even done so to the point that I now encourage more scientific textbooks with the title "Abiology 101" in addition to and in contrast with "Biology 101" (see e.g. Did Abiotic Intelligence Precede Biotic Intelligence?, Putting A Face On Machine Mutation - 3).

A fair definition of Biology is:

... the science of life or living matter in all its forms and phenomena, especially with reference to origin, growth, reproduction, structure, and behavior.
(Dictionary, emphasis added). A fair definition of Abiology, then, ought to be:
... the science of non-life or non-living matter in all its forms and
phenomena, especially with reference to origin, growth, reproduction, structure, and behavior.
(see e.g. abiological).

(Weekend Rebel Science Excursion - 27). What next, a Mars Rover in love with a rock star (The Doll As Metaphor - 8)?

To be fair to Suckjoon, scientists who are much more mature in their careers think that quantum microtubulin (made of HNO atoms) are where our "soul" and "consciousness" is:

"... Roger Penrose and I have developed a theory of consciousness ... It basically proposes quantum computation in brain neuron microtubules inside neurons. So rather than neuron-to-neuron communication, we're looking at a deeper level inside neurons to give a global sense of consciousness through quantum mechanics, which results in real-time causality and free will ... it gives consciousness real-time control and a potential connection to fundamental space-time geometry, quantum space-time geometry, through Roger's objective reduction. This is consistent with Eastern spiritual traditions. Although Roger doesn't like to talk about it, I've taken the liberty of observing the implications of what he said and what we've said for consciousness, for Eastern philosophy and other spiritual traditions ... if quantum consciousness is correct, for example, if Penrose's idea is correct, we are literally ripples in the fine structure of space-time geometry, which can resonate - levels of consciousness can resonate from the Planck scale, the bottom level of the Universe, multiple hierarchical levels to the brain. This is consistent with Eastern philosophy and also indicates that afterlife, reincarnation, and out-of-body experiences that we've heard about are plausible. The quantum soul."

(Stuart Hameroff - Do we have a quantum Soul?, emphasis added). They openly admit to what I have pointed out, which is that certain portions of our "science" is more and more looking like eastern mysticism in several disciplines of microbiology (The Doll As Metaphor - 5).

Shame on them.
