... infantile experiences, have their roots in archaic situations. They are of the nature of reactions to life-threatening circumstances. Individuals who are afraid of closed spaces, or panicked by wide-open areas, or fear views from heights, or flight in planes, may perchance be exhibiting atavistic fears engendered in the catastrophic experiences of ancestors. And as in structural biology in which a derivation of six fingers may often be traced to the same deformity in a quite removed ancestor, and again to an earlier occurrence in farther removed progenitors, so also a psychic anomaly may possibly skip several generations, only to reappear as if in random cases. One of the most traumatic collective experiences of mankind took place ...

262. Theory not such a stretch [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home | Issue Contents Theory not such a stretch www.nationalpost.com/financialpost/story.html?id={96172650-901E-4EAE-8C7D-E3D0259DB6 6} Friday, November 01, 2002. [. .] Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, a 19th-century French biologist, was mocked when he proposed giraffes got their long necks from generations of stretching. He may have been right. [. .] in recent years, scientists have noticed something odd. There appears to be much more to heredity than plain old DNA. Now, a startling Swedish study may rehabilitate Lamarck's reputation. The 15-year study, published this week in the European ...

... earth, are very strong per particle, averaging several billions of electron volts and sometimes carrying a potential of a hundred billion electron volts. As comparatively few such rays or charges hit our atmosphere, their general effect is not spectacular. But it is conceivable that, where a cosmic ray or charge hits a gene of germ plasma, a biological mutation takes place, comparable to the physical transmutation of the elements. After all, the genes, like any proteins, are biochemical compounds composed of carbon, nitrogen, and a few other elements. Should a somatic chromosome be hit by a powerful charge, it might at worst cause disorganized growth and be the origin of a neo-plasma ...

264. Survival (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... an expression of the empirical observation that it is the law of survival that governs the structure and behavior of living creatures. For us this is self-evident - it has in fact become axiomatic for the sociobiologists; but historically the discovery of the concept of "survival" as the supreme law of nature was a crucial advance for the science of biology. It turns out that the concept tells us nothing about how living things evolve, though it indicates in the broadest terms why they undergo changes through time - change is necessary for survival. To the further question of why these changes are almost invariably in the direction of increasing complexity (on this the geological record is unequivocal), ...

... upon his theory of Cultural Amnesia. According to this theory, mankind forgot about unpleasant catastrophic events on the conscious level but remembers on the unconscious level. Furthermore, it would appear that the unconscious memory is transmitted genetically from one generation to the next, a concept already postulated by Freud and Jung but in disagreement with much of the current biological thinking. "If Velikovsky's theory is correct, then it is possible to suggest that every generation lives in a state of trauma induced by the conflict between subconscious memories of past catastrophic events and the refusal of the conscious mind to recognise that these events actually occurred in prehistoric and historic times. Dr Velikovsky believes that the trauma is responsible ...

... known to have been created since the close of the Ice Age. In 1907, V. L. Kellogg of Stanford University came to the following conclusion: "The fair truth is that the Darwinian selection theories, considered with regard to their claimed capacity to be an independently sufficient mechanical explanation of descent, stand today seriously discredited in the biological world. On the other hand, it is also fair truth to say that no replacing hypothesis or theory of species forming has been offered by the opponents of selection which has met with any general or even considerable acceptance by naturalists. Mutations seem to be too few and far between; for orthogenesis we can discover no satisfactory mechanism; ...

... thinking can ever fall into it." He concluded that gravitational forces were a direct expression of God's will: "There exists an infinite and omnipresent spirit in which matter is moved according to mathematical laws." Sheldrake, as in The Presence of the Past, discusses the limitations of the reductionist neo-Darwinian mechanisms which have been proposed to explain biological evolution, advocating instead a more holistic approach. He is, of course, not alone in this, but his fine general account is of necessity distorted to accommodate his hypothesis of formative causation, which holds that the way a process happens is influenced by morphic fields: these are set up the first time the process occurs and are ...

... in the words of one critic, the president of the Geological Society, Adam Sedgwick. Darwin later acknowledged that the brunt of the attack against his own theory was absorbed by Vestiges. What was new in Darwin's teaching was not the principle of evolution in general but the explanation of its mechanism by natural selection. This was an adaptation to biology of the Malthusian theory about population growing more quickly than the means of existence. Darwin acknowledged his debt to Malthus, whose book he read in 1838. Herbert Spencer and Alfred R. Wallace independently came to the same views as Darwin, and the expression "survival of the fittest" was Spencer's. Darwin wrote his theory with the ...
