Sometimes I hate reading books that make you think just before trying to go to bed.
I'm going to be up all night thinking... but not necessarily about things that I'm reading.
Instead, I will contemplate things that have haunted me since I was little.
For example, has anyone ever noticed that the DNA spiral looks amazingly like a three dimensional representation of a sine wave. That actually makes me wonder if we're misrepresenting electrical currents and other forces that are visually represented as a sine wave incorrectly when we do it at a two dimensional level. What I mean by that is, why are we still using 2D to represent a wave pattern when it can very well be 3D?
And speaking of DNA, has anyone ever found a relationship between the spiral of our genes and the exponential spiral? I mean, the exponential spiral is a pretty basic pattern in the Universe, and our genetic make-up seems to also be a standard (ie. Universal) pattern. For example, did you know that every creature that has vision uses the exact same gene as every other creature that has vision? The same gene is used repeatedly from phyla to phyla for the ability to see its environment.
I could go on and on. And this isn't even stuff that's covered in the book I'm reading. The book I'm reading tries to join science and the Bible (not necessarily teachings of the Church, which we can agree aren't the same thing). It's a book that tries to merge concepts to show that each can be telling the same story, just from a different point of view. And as such, it makes me think. And that's when I start contemplating the things which I have mentioned above. And I've only just read the first two chapters. He's just introducing material at this point.
So, in the following days or even weeks, I will probably be spouting out a bunch of bizarre facts on physics (one of my loves) and revelations about the Bible which I hadn't yet contemplated, but this guy has. Forgive me.
Not that any of you really read my posts... at least it seems that way these last couple of weeks. Maybe I need to post more photos of naked women, eh? Geesh!
