11. Chapter 3: BRAINWORK [Quantavolution Website]
... to look in the central nervous system, especially in the brain, for the source of those operations that are peculiarly human: the activations and transmission system, the electric and chemical processes, and the proneness to specialization of functions found in the cerebrum. With this knowledge, we may venture such hypotheses as appear plausible on the dozen or so aspects of ... how many millimeters of depth one may safely penetrate. Unlike other organs in the body, the brain does not usually reject tissue transplants. This feature not only suggests that the chemistry of the brain is generalized but also why specific functions can locate here and there and relocate, too. Brain operations are delicate partly because we do not know what to be ... , these with their projecting fibriles an axon to emit a message, dendrites to receive them are half in the brain and half elsewhere in the body. No two neurons are chemically the same, because, said Polyak once, "All neurons have different shapes." [7 And they carry differently shaped muscles along their dendrites, too, according to ...

... !?!? Cut their funding now!!")- but really, this is only a problem if you are seeking an ultimately "true" metaphysical explanation of chemical behaviour (and as Michael reminded us the other day, "objective" scientific theories must of necessity have underlying metaphysics)- most are just interested in making their reactions work ... you'd really sell me Larson's idea is to show me examples where it can explain& rationalise things where the nuclear model doesn't have anything to offer. Then, like a good chemist, I'll quite happily use it for those situations. DAVE Davis---- WEBSITES OF NOTE Ian Tresman, Ev Cochrane, Don Scott, Wal Thornhill [ed. ... " blah blah blah... The fact that a model WORKS is, to most chemists, all that matters, because it will allow them to rationalise& classify the chemistry they see happening in front of them in the lab- whether or not it is metaphysically "Wrong" or "Right" is not of much importance. (For how ...

... in nearly every instance accompanied by a comet." [19 Sometimes beasts (the "murrain") are afflicted as well as or instead of humans. The relation between chemical and radiation plagues and "real plagues" of viruses and germs is close in the history of Exodus and its aftermath. Realization that their sources may be cosmic disturbances will no ... from very freshly formed gaseous formaldehyde at a temperature of 150º-180º C (H. Vogel at the University of Geneva in 1928)."

In the major catastrophic columns or typhoons of a comet-earth encounter, therefore, would be discovered a variety of chemicals under turbulent conditions of pressure, heat, and electricity.

... sometimes by both. Yet there appears to be no great volcano that might have exploded or collapsed nearby. Although perhaps none has done so, it appears to me that a chemical examination of these beds of ashes of the different centers of exploration in Asia Minor and the Middle East might tell us whether hand-set flames, volcanic fall-out or some other less familiar ... usual, what seems simple is difficult to bring about in experimental science. I did discover that no sure blocks confront a set of distinctions among ash-- heaps of varying chemistry, origins, duration, quantity. A crucial test is possible. We need an interdisciplinary team-- archaeologists, chemists, geologists, zoologists, geographer, engineer, mythographer ... technical variations on a theme: given unmistakable traces of the occurrence of certain meteoritic falls, how might these be distinguished and measured, what excavations could they have caused, what chemicals could have been scattered about, what animals and planets would have died-- all of this tightly bound up with uniformitarian experience and highly mathematicized. One searches hopelessly in the ...

VAN OOSTERHOUT: Stephen Talbott, the editor of Pensee, has referred your letter of January ... Fuhr promised to do what she could, but when her pre-arranged interview at the Cairo Museum at last took place, she was informed by Dr. Zaki Iskander, the chief chemist there, that the attribution of the mummy in question to Ramses III was in fact by no means certain. He offered her instead three pieces of wood from the tomb of ... between the Mycenaean and the Greek Ages, and the Homeric question tied to it. This morning the radio announced that W. F.

... eye, for instance. (Even so, madmen and small boys can teach themselves to control the blink.) This unrestrained reflex is instinctive, as are a great many chemical and motile reactions of the organs and limbs. In the human bloodstream are to be found leucocytes, cells that hunt infectious bacteria instinctively? Then where is the instinct: in ... of the human condition." So says Mendel, abstracting from a lifetime of administering intensive psychotherapy [14. Physiologically, insofar as anxiety can be detected, it exhibits the chemistry and muscular tensions of fear. And fear, when slight, is indistinguishable from anxiety. And anxiety can become terror and panic. The common use of the term "anxiety ... . He can reproduce his logical apparatus by computers.

... layers are thick and far-flung, it may be reasonable to suppose the Auvergne would be afflicted by the same activity as is producing the ashes generally, and, with ever better chemical analysis, the ashes may even be traced to the neighborhood of the volcanoes in question. Still, as the chapter on volcanism reflects, at the moment historical volcanology has to ... with, floods and tides, is a difficult problem for geophysics. The evidence is of a kind elaborated earlier in this book -the search for the sources of oceanic water, chemistry of seawater, and so on. Still it may be possible to discover a true exoterrestrial deluvial sediment by, if nothing else, the exclusion of all other explanations from related ... volcanic explosion; still such effects would not fracture rock nor (probably) affect the hearing of species genetically. Other acoustical effects might, however, be mutating, and even chemically effective on the molecular level of the atmosphere and lithosphere. Legends do describe great sounds that suggest exoterrestrialism: we have alluded to them. So too, have we mentioned spectres ...

... which exhibit numerous lightning strokes are not known to create radioactive hotspots, principally because the traverse through the atmosphere slows the bolt sufficiently so that the most noticeable effects are ionization and chemical recombination of atmospheric gases. Such ions which are generated cannot be accelerated through the air-mass with sufficient velocity to effect nuclear transformations and create radioisotopes. With respect to terrestrial lightning, ... , and their Satellites," Space Science Reviews 3 (Reidel: Dordrecht, Holland, 1973), pp. 179-271. John M.

A chemically educated olfactory sense can readily discern differences between odoriferous gaseous compounds of nitrogen and sulphur. The discharge of lightning through the atmosphere can appear to have a blue or purplish color, ...

... was not surprised when their analyses of these powders found crushed galena and cerussite (two ores of lead). However, they nearly dropped their test tubes when they also found chemical compounds that are extremely rare in nature; specifically, laurionite (PbOHCl) and phosgenite (Pb 2 Cl 2 CO 3). In fact, these compounds are so rare ...

... was still raw and had not even begun to cook. This invention, a simple paint that can render anything impervious to very high temperatures, has been the holy grail of chemical research for more than fifty years. Teams of scientists in the world's greatest industrial and defence laboratories have poured billions of pounds and hundreds of man-years into the search for such a ... . Part of his income was derived from selling his customers hair preparations such as shampoo, conditioner and hairspray. To maximise his income he rented a small workshop, bought standard chemicals and mixed and bottled his own brand hair products. In the best traditions of Ealing Comedy, it was when playing around mixing up chemicals in his 'skunk works' that Ward ... ICI's own paints laboratory held an internal audit and what they found puts this claim in an entirely different light. For the audit showed that the most scientifically qualified of its research chemists had contributed to the least number of patents, and the fewer scientific qualifications the staff possessed, the greater the number of patents they had contributed to. In the most striking ...
