Darwin Day Celebrations

As institutions around the world start celebrations of Darwin Day, New York reveals a digitized catalog of Darwin’s scientific manuscripts.

A number of cities around the world have begun to trumpet the accomplishments of Charles Darwin this month.  Many started yesterday (February 12), Darwin’s birthday and the official “Darwin Day,” while others will start and continue their programmed celebrations throughout the month.  (You can read about all of the various celebrations at darwinday.org.)

To commemorate the day, The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York has announced that it is releasing the first phase of a catalog of Darwin’s manuscripts containing some 45,000 documents.  Other efforts to immortalize Darwin’s work are ongoing, including papers made publicly available through the Biodiversity Heritage Library.  The AMNH papers trace the scientist’s ideas as they developed into his theory of evolution and natural selection and include hand-written documents from his expeditions and field notes, some of which are annotated with typed transcripts.

“Darwin's work, particularly his theory of evolution, is foundational for all of biology including work underway at the Museum today,” said Michael Novacek, senior vice president and provost for science at AMNH in a statement.

Time To Update Science Comprehension Of Reality, Including Life Evolution:

Universe-Energy-Mass-Life Compilation
http://universe-life.com/2012/...
 
 
A. The Universe
 
From the Big-Bang it is a rationally commonsensical conjecture that the gravitons, the smallest base primal particles of the universe, must be both mass and energy, i.e. inert mass yet in motion even at the briefest fraction of a second of the pre Big Bang singularity. This is rationally commonsensical since otherwise the Big would not have Banged, the superposition of mass and energy would not have been resolved.
The universe originates, derives and evolves from this energy-mass dualism which is possible and probable due to the small size of the gravitons.
Since gravitation Is the propensity of energy reconversion to mass and energy is mass in motion, gravity is the force exerted between mass formats.
All the matter of the universe is a progeny of the gravitons evolutions, of the natural selection of mass, of some of the mass formats attaining temporary augmented energy constraint in their successive generations, with energy drained from other mass formats, to temporarily postpone, survive, the reversion of their own constitutional mass to the pool of cosmic energy fueling the galactic clusters expansion set in motion by the Big Bang.
 
B. Earth Life
 
Earth Life is just another mass format. A self-replicating mass format. Self-replication is its mode of evolution, natural selection. Its smallest base primal units are the RNAs genes.
The genesis of RNAs genes, life’s primal organisms, is rationally commonsensical thus highly probable, the “naturally-selectedâ€쳌 RNA nucleotides. Life began/evolved on Earth with the natural selection of inanimate RNA, then of some RNA nucleotides, then arriving at the ultimate mode of natural selection, self-replication.
 
C. Know Thyself. Life Is Simpler Than We Are Told
 
The origin-reason and the purpose-fate of life are mechanistic, ethically and practically valueless. Life is the cheapest commodity on Earth.
As Life is just another mass format, due to the oneness of the universe it is commonsensical that natural selection is ubiquitous for ALL mass formats and that life, self-replication, is its extension. And it is commonsensical, too, that evolutions, broken symmetry scenarios, are ubiquitous in all processes in all disciplines and that these evolutions are the “quantum mechanicsâ€쳌 of the processes.
 
Human life is just one of many nature’s routes for the natural survival of RNAs, the base primal Earth organisms.
 
Life’s evolution, self-replication:
 
Genes (organisms) to genomes (organisms) to monocellular to multicellular organisms:
 
Individual monocells to cooperative monocells communities,“culturesâ€쳌.
Monocells cultures to neural systems, then to nerved multicellular organisms.
 
Human life is just one of many nature’s routes for the natural survival of RNAs, the base Earth organism.
It is up to humans themselves to elect the purpose and format of their life as individuals and as group-members.
