Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

Peak Novelty – Some Indicators

Submitted by on August 13, 2011 – 1:37 amNo Comment

The novelty theory of the late Terrence McKenna is a mainstay of 2012 discussions. McKenna allegedly arrived at a Nov 2012 date prior to learning of the Long Count calendar. He proposed a singularity of infinite complexity in 2012, at which point anything and everything imaginable will occur simultaneously. The methodology is interesting, but not scientific given that previous peaks of novelty were determined using his own personal and cultural biases.

However, if McKenna was correct, we can expect to see a lot of movement in certain areas leading up to late 2012. These areas would involve the building blocks where man and machine and can rapidly innovate. Here’s some news from today that is food for thought:

  • Artificial Animals – Researchers say they have created the first ever animal with artificial information in its genetic code. The technique, they say, could give biologists “atom-by-atom control” over the molecules in living organisms. It won’t be long before scientists are building living animals, of their own design, in petri dishes.
  • Anti-Virus Drug – Not a drug that kills a particular virus, but one that kills them all. It is being tested on animals.
  • Gene Therapy Cures CancerTwo of three patients dying of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) appear cured and a third is in partial remission after infusions of genetically engineered T cells.

Other areas which are showing rapid increases in innovation are:

  • Alternative / Renewable Energy – I predict we will have virtually free solar energy within 20 years
  • Robotics – Advances are being made in every direction, and when someone merges all the innovations, we’ll have a walking, talking, thinking robot
  • Self-repair systems – Where a structure or machine has the ability to fix itself
  • Nanotechnology
  • Remote and Automated Warfare – No humans in battle
  • Semantic Web – soon software will crawl the web and make decisions…

While none of these things on their own will create singularity, we are on the cusp of a number of advances that collectively could.

This week’s roller-coaster share market ride could be a symptom of change becoming the norm.
