I believe that, as with drawing the planet, the study of color trains the eye to see. It improves our skills and makes us a better observer. It will train the careful, honest observer to be all the more mindful of the integrity of his observation. Over time, the observation of color in a consistent manner can provide useful data regarding trends in Jupiter's atmosphere. We have referred to coloration events in Jupiter's Equatorial Zone. We have discussed the fadings and Revivals of the South Equatorial Belt and the subsequent increase and decrease in intensity of the GRS. Belts fade and are restored. All of these events are impossible to discuss without introducing some discussion of color. The great history of Jupiter is replete with the discussion of color by past observers. It is as though the discussion of color in Jupiter's atmosphere is ingrained in the human spirit and we should not deny it to ourselves.
Some mathematicians, though, argue strongly from an anti-Platonic stance. They claim mathematics is not some sort of idealized essence independent of human consciousness, but is rather the invention of human minds. It is a social phenomenon, part of human culture. (This is a rather brave thing for professional mathematicians to propose, because superficially the proposal can sound like the lunatic ravings of those postmodernist critics who denounce science as the arbitrary construction of dead white male Europeans.) The anti-Platonist contends that mathematical objects are created by us, according to the needs of daily life. It may be, they argue, that evolution has hard-wired an arithmetic module into our brains. Neuroscientists even have a possible location for this module the inferior parietal cortex, an as yet poorly understood area of the brain.144 simpler cognitive processes. For example, when small numbers of objects are involved, the animals might be subitizing. We do the same...
For most of the history of mankind, it was reverently held that the Earth is flat - as is entirely obvious to anyone who has stood in a Nebraska cornfield around planting time. The concept of a flat Earth is still built into our language in such phrases as the four corners of the Earth. I thought I would stump my little first-graders and then explain with what difficulty the sphericity of Earth had come into general human consciousness. But I had underestimated the first grade of Mill Valley.
Origin and the middle finger of your right hand represent the present moment. One arm span now equals 4,600 million years. If that arm span is, say, 66 inches, then 1 inch 69.7 million years. The first fossil animals big enough to see with the naked eye show up in sediments 540 million years old about to the wrist of your right hand. The Paleozoic Era, or age of old life, extends from your right wrist to the base of your right fingers. The basal and middle finger joints of the right middle finger represent the entire age of middle life (the Mesozoic Era, which most people associate with dinosaurs) and the last finger joint, including the fingernail, represents the age of new life (dominated by mammals), or the Cenozoic Era.
Zhora flew a variety of MiG, Yak and Lavochkin planes in all weather conditions, and often his inner peace and cool thinking enabled him to overcome difficulties. In contrast to many other pilots, he liked parachute jumps, making 111 jumps in total. In fact, when he joined the cosmonaut group he was appointed as an instructor for parachuting. In October 1952, soon after finishing studies at the Evening University of Marxism-Leninism, he was posted to East Germany to defend
There will be a time in our future history when the Solar System will be explored and inhabited. To them, and to all who come after us, the present moment will be a pivotal instant in the history of mankind. There are not many generations given an opportunity as historically significant as this one. The opportunity is ours, if we but grasp it. To paraphrase K. E. Tsiolkovsky, the founder of astronautics The Earth is the cradle of mankind, but one cannot live in the cradle forever.
An average humanoid handful of times, the universe has undergone major changes in the way it pulls itself together, differentiates, organizes, evolves, awakens, and reflects. Heredity was one of these giant steps, allowing entirely new possibilities of change, facilitating a metamorphosis in the roles of matter and energy. I think that the advent of conscious awareness* is probably the next change on this scale. But, how did we get from there to here
A carbon atom in the molecule of carbon dioxide in the air can be identified and recorded as such by the physicist. There is nothing inconvenient in the present physical recording of atoms and molecules. However, molecule registered as a record differs from molecule functioning as a memory. Molecule as a memory is a material token passed over from past events and processed at the present moment by the material body that can read it as such. Carbon dioxide in the air is a material token to be taken in by a photosynthetic plant having the capacity of assimilating it to the own body. Anabolism on the part of photosynthetic plant assumes the memory such that carbon dioxide in the ambient can be the material resource to feed upon. In parallel, carbon dioxide in the air is a molecular imprint having the memory, or equivalently the capacity, that it can be assimilated into photosynthetic plants.
