  • Re: Fermi's Paradox Again
    Cent sightings ii William s flagging up of non corporeal possibilities and Albert s knowledge of earlier evidence Have to agree that Fermi was out of his depth either not being aware of reports or choosing to ignore them Looking at the evidence it seems to divide into qualitatively different groups Astronomical reports by scientists and other qualified observers up to the early 20th Cent i e before governments had the need and power to suppress them maybe seen in the work of Charles Fort I m referring to reports of large sometimes very large physical things seen above the atmosphere often passing in front of the Moon or Sun They re reported factually and prosaically and seemed to obey the laws of physics as far as motion and appearance goes although many clearly exceeded our own capabilities even now Sightings below the atmosphere again from ancient times onwards also featured by Fort of many different craft some huge There s a tinge of strangeness to many with reports of impossible movements and actions instant disappearances etc A case can be made and is by Vallee et al that these appearances shift to fit the human pre conceptions of the day with mythological entities in the ancient past complicated mechanical airships seen in the 1800 s and sleek futuristic saucers in the 20th Cent Where the sightings are also of beings again they seem to change to suit contemporary expectations i e pantheonic types in ancient times while more recently like at Fatima folk saw religious icons and personages Lastly there s a huge modern mess of weirdness involving entities at close range either humanoid or more or less alien monsters These often seem to disobey the laws of physics materializing and disappearing easily passing through walls barriers etc They

  • Stanford Engineers Create Biological Transistor
    demonstrated the ability to store digital data in DNA some of them at jaw dropping densities link and last year a team led by Stanford bioengineer Drew Endy developed a system for transmitting genetic information between cells Now in a study recounted in the latest issue of Science link Endy s team has developed what it calls a transcriptor E2 80 93 the biological equivalent of a digital transistor E2 80 93 and with it a system of logic that can control cellular function In your standard computer transistors govern the flow of electricity by playing red light green light with electrons along a circuit Similarly a transcriptor regulates the flow of a protein called RNA polymerase along a strand of DNA Transistors and transcriptors are at their most basic on off switches E2 80 93 the gatekeepers of information transmission storage amplification and so forth The rules that these gatekeepers follow give rise to the logic systems that dictate what problems a computer can solve A transcriptor gatekeeper that lives by a code of AND for example might allow RNA polymerase to continue along a strand of DNA when two predetermined conditions are true E2 80 93 if for example the transcriptor detects the presence of Enzyme A AND Enzyme B inside the cell A transcriptor that abides by the code of OR on the other hand would allow RNA polymerase to continue when either or both of the enzymes are present In computer science transistors that abide by AND NAND OR XOR NOR XNOR rules which you can read all about here link are called Boolean logic gates Endy calls his transcriptor equivalents Boolean Integrase Logic gates Or BIL gates for short link Below Endy provides an in depth explanation of Transcriptors and BIL gates Here s the

  • Peaceful Movie Aliens
    a day when extraterrestrials arrive and only want to communicate provide us with renewable energy alternatives and be our best friends Instead we tend to get movies about nasty ugly lethal aliens especially because they better represent our fears in times of red scares and terrorist threats Even the new movie The Host is about an alien race claiming to be peace loving while taking over human bodies in order

  • Chicago X-files: Center Studies UFOs
    city most of CUFOS several hundred members are scientists and academics scattered throughout the world And in 2010 difficult economic times forced the UFOlogists to close the doors of its longtime headquarters on Peterson Street in Chicago s northern Arcadia Terrace neighborhood More than 70 000 case files journals and scientific papers are now split between the Skokie home of the organization s archivist and the basement of Rodeghier s ultra modern house in Norwood Park Dispersed or not CUFOS remains one of only two major organizations in the U S dedicated to the serious yes serious academic and scientific study of UFO activity Its primary focus is to be something of a think tank of unexplained phenomena focusing on collecting and documenting information on reported sightings producing reports and journals and assisting researchers around the world with their own investigations Columbia College professor Tony Trigilio made a recent visit to CUFOS to browse through the center s archives The creative writing professor is working on a book of historical poetry about a UFO abduction case and found a file at CUFOS to be invaluable I was doing a lot of research on people who claim to be abducted and

  • Brazil On The Brink? - Cox
    the end of that meeting in an ostensible show of good faith or maybe it was just window dressing who knows the brass actually concedes the civilians may be on to something And it agrees to give them access to some of the most contentious UFO records on file Well change the venue from the U S to Brazil and that s exactly what happened in Brasilia on April 18 according to A J Gevaerd As editor of Brazilian UFO Magazine Gevaerd has been covering The Great Taboo forever in South America s biggest country and he has sources out the wazoo He also works amid a radically different cultural climate Brazil s Ministry of Defense is far less reluctant to speak on the record about UFOs than its American counterparts In fact Gevaerd writes the unprecedented 4 18 meeting was the MoD s direct response to a letter emerging from the 4th World UFO Forum in Brasilia last December which called for more data sharing with civilians The ufologists or the Brazilian Commmittee of UFO Researchers CBU also pressed for joint civilian military study of The Great Taboo Some 600 people attended that conference which featured 30 speakers from a dozen countries Gevaerd is joining Steve Bassett s Citizen Hearing on Disclosure which kicked off today at the National Press Club in Washington De Void who actually works with a mainstream corporate newspaper will monitor press coverage from afar Which is too bad because Gevaerd is one guy I d like to meet Lots of questions on this end not the least of which concern the credentials or credibility of the half dozen CBU transparency advocates with whom the MoD agreed to meet How De Void wonders did the MoD attain its comfort level with these folks And by
