    Is The Universe A Conscious Mind?

    We have discussed several times in the past the nature of consciousness and the role matter plays in that phenomenon. The topic is something that has been fascinating scientists and philosophers for millenia bt unfortunately, over the last 100 years a very crude, mechanistic and frankly false...

    Early Life On Earth Developed For Optimal Reproduction, Not Competition

    One of the mainstream tenets of neo-Dariwinism is the never-ending competition of all life forms for resources and procreation. This tenet is so pervasive, it affects virtually all aspects of social, business and scientific activity in modern societies. However, the study below shows that early...

    Alien Life May Have Been Found On The International Space Station (ISS)

    For some reason this news is not featured on the front page of news outlets around the world. Maybe it is too preliminary and unofficial, but if true would confirm what Peat and a host of other biologists have been saying for years - life is common around the Universe and we just don't know how...

    Life's First Molecule Was A Protein, Not DNA Or RNA

    I posted a few studied in the past that argued for the primal role of RNA (and not DNA) in evolution. Not The "selfish Gene"(DNA), But RNA Be The Driver Of Evolution The geneticists like to claim that DNA still rules supreme because it was the primordial molecule that started life and its...

    In The Beginning There Was Metabolism, And Metabolism Said Let There Be Life

    I posted a thread long time ago about how the emergence of life was unavoidable given the basic physical laws of our Universe. https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/the-emergence-of-life-was-virtualy-guaranteed.3071/ The same author (England) has since conducted a number of simulations and...

    Facial Deformity May Be An Indication Of Early Life Stress

    A few people have asked Peat about bodily facial and torso deformities and he has said it is likely due to high estrogen, especially in early childhood. This recent study seems to add evidence to that hypothesis by showing that crooked bite (a type of facial deformity) is an indication of stress...

    Metabolism May Be Older Than Life Itself And Can Start Spontaneously

    If this is indeed true I am not sure how can modern medicine continue to deny the primary role of metabolism in the human organism. The picture so far suggests that metabolism appeared first, then RNA and finally DNA. The same group published two studies. The first one showed that glycolysis can...

    The Discovery Of Organisms (bacteria) That Use Pure Electricity As Food

    Ray has written often about the idea of life being a kind of electron filter between the two electrodes of a battery. While many people will agree that in principles we are all electronic machines that depend on electrons derived from chemicals (food) for survival, up until now life forms that...
