The Magenta Cube: My Experience With VR

Around the time I started back in on reading GEB: an eternal golden braid by Douglas Hofstadter I experienced a very vivid sculptural dream image. And it’s not unusual for me to have unusual dreams because I actively engage my creativity in waking hours. The sculptural scenario that I saw in the dream was ofContinue reading “The Magenta Cube: My Experience With VR”

Bio + Evolution: Human Stem Cells Are Infinitely Regenerative

Human stem cells contain the potential of infinite regeneration and pluripotency means they can become any type of cell. They do so by mitotic cell division, and mitosis is asexual. So, asexual reproduction occurs within the human body. Mitosis is run by a cell cycle system; the phases are activated by advanced interactions of enzymesContinue reading “Bio + Evolution: Human Stem Cells Are Infinitely Regenerative”

Olympic Lifting & Beyond: How I Boost Muscle Recovery In Training

1. Sleep Generous amounts of it and even the occasional unabashed hibernation! This is a vital means of regeneration and recovery. I do best with a more traditional rhythm, when I’m more or less following the sun. And remember, the mental rest is just as important. By now you may have heard that nervous systemContinue reading “Olympic Lifting & Beyond: How I Boost Muscle Recovery In Training”

Eco + Finance: Photosynthetic Money — Hard Currency Meets Carbon Removal

There’s so much money in carbon removal these days that even money itself could get in the game by becoming part of the new wave of green materials science. After all, there’s still plenty of physical currency. And The US Department of Energy has invested a lot into artificial photosynthesis R&D: https://www.energy.gov/articles/department-energy-announces-100-million-artificial-photosynthesis-research That’s right —Continue reading “Eco + Finance: Photosynthetic Money — Hard Currency Meets Carbon Removal”

Bioelectric + Acoustic: Signaling Pathways To Regenerate Limbs & More

Bioelectrical and sonic methods for healing are the future now. And the Chinese meridian system that describes bio-electricity deserves current —pun intended — attention and further development in conjunction with sound or frequency therapies, alongside engineering and chemistry. The above image comes from an amazing project of converting genetic and protein sequences into music calledContinue reading “Bioelectric + Acoustic: Signaling Pathways To Regenerate Limbs & More”

Eco + Tech: Flash Biodegradability Pt. 1 — Concept Adaptation & Development

The concept of Flash Biodegradability is directly inspired by the above achievement of James Tour and team at Rice University, making “flash graphene” out of trash, a carbon byproduct. Flash Biodegradability would ideally leave no tangible byproduct, such as trace elements or light — or create a useful byproduct such as water. Its successful realizationContinue reading “Eco + Tech: Flash Biodegradability Pt. 1 — Concept Adaptation & Development”

RE-POST: Achieving higher performance with potassium ion battery by Tsinghua University Press

https://phys.org/news/2022-04-higher-potassium-ion-battery.amp Remember the banana art ? Hearing a lot about lithium still, but what about the potassium ion battery?— research by Tsinghua University, among others like Korea University “…life on the planet is somehow based on biological potassium-ion batteries. K+ is the key charge carrier in plants. Circulation of K+ ions facilitates the energy storageContinue reading “RE-POST: Achieving higher performance with potassium ion battery by Tsinghua University Press”

Tech + Materials: The Buzz On Graphene

Graphene is inorganic/human-assembled crystalline carbon, laid out flat in 2D sheet, with a hexagonal lattice configuration. This is copying nature: Bees use hexagonal packing for their honeycombs to maximize space. Carbon has many forms and uses since it’s one fundamental constituent of our material reality. Like other elements, it’s a type of atom, with aContinue reading “Tech + Materials: The Buzz On Graphene”

Longevity⁺ Corner: What Is An NRF2 & What Foods Does It Like?

NRF2 stands for Nuclear factor-erythroid factor 2-related factor 2 —say that 10 times fast — and is a “DNA transcription factor” protein that regulates and enhances how genes are expressed by binding to it. It’s a complex other world inside the human body, yet perhaps we can understand better by comparing with the outer worldContinue reading “Longevity⁺ Corner: What Is An NRF2 & What Foods Does It Like?”

Molecule Of The Month: NAD+ Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide

NAD is a coenzyme found in all cells. And coenzymes function as catalysts to mediate metabolic reactions. For some great detail on the function of NAD+ within the body’s energy pathways, visit the linked caption above. Generally speaking, NAD shuttles electrons or energy “as a way to carry stored energy to produce ATP.” So, thisContinue reading “Molecule Of The Month: NAD+ Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide”

Maximizing Regenerative Processes Part 3: The Human Circuit, The Infinite Self

Transformation from archetypical self to infinite self is both philosophical and physiological. The infinite self is multifaceted and maleable. To be experienced, one must allow it. An archetype is a model or example that can be copied or emulated. In mythology and literature, a common archetype is the Hero, and a classic Hero’s Journey isContinue reading “Maximizing Regenerative Processes Part 3: The Human Circuit, The Infinite Self”

The Sunday Investor: Future Vision

In order to experience a sustainable world environment, it’s necessary to promote the free flow of technology, ideas and resources. The most important technology to adopt first on a large scale is that of green electric energy. Far from being a new concept, it requires no further justification. Switching modes of energy should no longerContinue reading “The Sunday Investor: Future Vision”
