Evidence of Things Unseen: Why Not Dark Matter?

By: Les Johnson

Description: Les Johnson describes what scientists have discovered about Dark Matter.

Excerpt: Scientists now believe that dark matter accounts for about 84 percent of the matter in the universe. In other words, when you look into the sky and add up the mass of the planets, the Sun, all the stars (many of which, we now know, have planets circling them), the black holes, pulsars and quasars you will have only accounted for about 16% of the mass that should be there – if our understanding of gravity and its effects are correct. Something different (not made...

Family Therapy: Learning to Love Mercury and Pluto

By: William Ledbetter

Description: William Ledbetter describes our growing curiosity to discover more about our galaxy and universe as we want for a new exciting discovery to spark our interest.

Excerpt: So what do we do in the interim? Try to understand or at least accept the quirks and oddities of those we are stuck with? We actually have a great planetary family. Yes, the bigger siblings, Jupiter and Saturn, always get their way, but have used their impressive gravity to nearly sweep our Solar system clean of dangerous debris, making it a safer place for the little ones like Earth and Mars. Of course there is solemn and moody Venus who refuses to talk to anyo...

Brains Aflame: Out on the Frontier of Neuroscience with a World-cl...

By: Tony Daniel

Description: There are whole millennia of human history filled with gibberish spoken about the mind, the soul, the brain, and about what it means to be a conscious person. For science fiction in particular, such speculation seems to be the first and last refuge of the writer with not much to say and it has produced a distinct genre of bellybutton-lint gazing literature over the years. Most of these products (I hesitate to call them books or stories) are about as interest...

Excerpt: “There are ten billion nerve cells in an average human brain each branching into about ten thousand connections. A baby is born with many, many more of these connections than an adult. Maturation cuts connections rather than adds them. The technical term is dendritic pruning. One of the things we’ve learned recently is that you can grow more neurons and you can regain a good deal of brain plasticity and functionality. It’s all a matter of creating the proper conditions.”

Stars That Wonder, Are You Bright: Are Stars Conscious?

By: Dr. Greg Matloff

Description: The purpose of this article is, in part, to flesh out the concept of stellar consciousness as an alternative to Dark Matter and to present it to a wider audience. This article also discusses some of the observational and experimental approaches suggested by responders to the Centauri-Dreams blog to verify or falsify the hypothesis. This article also examines some observations reported after the blog was published and before the JBIS article was published tha...

Excerpt: According to the Big Bang theory, a vacuum fluctuation in a tiny volume became stabilized in some fashion about 13.7 billion years ago, resulting in our universe. The dynamic vacuum is therefore the ultimate free lunch and could be considered the most creative agency in the universe.

Description: This article touches into the Fermi Paradox. It explains different theories by numerous scientists on the Fermi Paradox and John Lambshead's opinion on the theories.

Excerpt: Another untestable possibility is that aliens are deliberatively quarantining Earth for some social, scientific or alien reason. This is known somewhat unflatteringly as the Zoo Hypothesis. Presumably, some pettifogging minor official in the Galactic Central Bureaucracy has decided that we are not ready, or worthy, or whatever, to join the great Galactic Society.
