The Scaled Fractal nature of Nature

William Blake (1757 - 1827) To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour... -'Auguries of Innocence' My Fractal Journey It all started, I suppose  now when I look back, when I was about seven…

Another predictable Scaling Law?

Leading on from last week's discussion of universal scaling laws within Nature, brings us to yet another seemingly universal phenomenon; a  recurrent and predictable embedded pattern,  formulated  and traditionally associated with the experimental agriculturalist Max Kleiber. His theory relates to the apparent predictable ¾ power laws where metabolic rate and mass are plotted for a…

Everything Grows (evolves?) according to the universal growth curve

Continuing on from last week's focus on D’Arcy Thompson’s alternative evolutionary understanding - universal scaling laws, which are finding strong scientific support in more recent times, particularly within the field of physics and its application to biological systems, as noted previously: D'Arcy Thompson's belief that a broader approach to the bigger questions would produce  exciting,…

Alternative Evolution: Scaling Laws – something universal is going on….

Epigenetics explains how Darwin’s Finches adapt to their environment

http://gbe.oxfordjournals.org/content/6/8/1972.full Interesting article from science paper (see link above) explaining epigenetics as a means of species variation and adaptability. Yes, yet again, we find that all speciation variation is explicable by epigenetic means (operating above the genes, changing their expressionvia environmental cues) and NOT BY DARWINIAN means. I came across this article via the uncommon…

Because Homo Floresiensis had Down Syndrome, doesn’t mean that Hobbits didn’t exist -Humans in the Making?

Homo floresiensis According to the Australian Museum, Homo Floresiensis (the species of very small humans often referred to as hobbits) "...archaeological evidence suggests H. floresiensis lived at Liang Bua from at least 95,000 to 13,000 years ago. These dates make it the latest-surviving human apart from our species H. sapiens". - See more at: http://australianmuseum.net.au/Homo-floresiensis#sthash.nCcL6FH5.dpuf…
