The Chicken and the Egg

February 12th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink


Consider the question: which came first, decease the chicken or the egg? This is the kind of dilemma that anyone can easily entertain. It is a people’s question. It has an aspect of humor. Yet when examined closely, nurse we see it has the possibility of revealing something inherent about biology, page about the nature of life.

Rayleigh scattering is the dispersal of wavelengths in the visible light spectrum, hospital resulting in the appearance of colored light in the remaining wavelengths. In one instance, information pills it occurs when sunlight travels through the Earth’s atmosphere towards the Moon, healing and again when that light is reflected to the surface of the Earth. “Perigee” displays the visible wavelengths emitted by the elements and compounds currently present in the Earth’s atmosphere, to suggest that Rayleigh scattering caused by pollution might generate the phenomenon of an orange moon.

Nature, Science, and Art

November 3rd, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink


Nature is everything, seek everywhere, cure in the present.
Nature is all things known and unknown.

Science is a formal method by which we investigate nature.
The Scientific Method is society’s way of verifying itself.

Art is a process of modeling nature, of representing forms, structures
and ideas.
Art raises social and cultural awareness, makes the invisible visible,
connects the improbable, breaks down artifice and presumption.
Art acts as a continuous feedback loop, constantly monitoring, evaluating
and modifying cultural activity.

Art and science share the goal of identifying, and identifying with, nature,
including a predictable fascination with human emotion, thought and
Both science and art aspire to truth without compromise.
Both challenge the way we see the world as individuals and community.

There are recent studies (this century) that tackle subjects such as love (Why We Love, ampoule Helen Fisher), stomach music (This is Your Brain on Music, malady Daniel Levitin), etc. from a rational, objective point of view. Rigorous analysis of these classic subjects is thought to be off limits because of their subjective nature. So after much discussion about the nature of happiness with members of Nature and Inquiry, I have decided to weigh-in on this fascinating and popular subject.

The Encyclopedia of Life

July 21st, 2007 § 0 comments § permalink

NASA is currently realizing E. O. Wilson’s idea of a comprehensive on-line catalog of all known life on Earth. The site will be fully functional in 2008, and is estimated to take 10 years to complete.

“The Encyclopedia of Life is an ecosystem of websites that makes all key information about life on Earth accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world. Our goal is to create a constantly evolving encyclopedia that lives on the Internet, with contributions from scientists and amateurs alike. To transform the science of biology, and inspire a new generation of scientists, by aggregating all known data about every living species. And ultimately, to increase our collective understanding of life on Earth, and safeguard the richest possible spectrum of biodiversity.” www.eol.org
