Was Darwin Wrong?

Was Charles Darwin Wrong on his theory of evolution? There have been many articles and a sudden spring of news about this. A few to mention would be a recent National Geographic Magazine issue and a Newspaper –‘Times of India’ article about the same. The latter mentions that there cannot be an "intellectual one" behind the scene and our world cannot be automated because we see evolution everywhere.

The world's diverse life forms are a result of evolution whose evidence dates back to the first living species. True enough the life forms of the world are going through evolution. We see it in every life form in different degrees. But that really put an end to the concept of an “intellectual one” who’s pre-programmed everything? Well, the answer is No. As mentioned in my previous posts, the one that talks about a probabilistic world is the key to the answer. If a program can be based on probability in order to make an output random yet ordered then there can be an Algorithm which governs the evolution of different species over time.

Genetic Algorithms: An algorithm designed to evolve the ‘fittest’ from a given set of data. This algorithm takes a set of data and evaluates them based on a fitness parameters
And after each cycle the winner replaces the weak ones. The algorithm is a part of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and is in wide use in various applications.

Now if this algorithm was implemented with appropriate parameters in this probabilistic world, what we would have today is a world of Evolution which is exactly what Charles Darwin has discovered.

So Charles Darwin was not wrong , but at the same time the concept of evolution does not rule out the possibility of an ‘Intelligent Being’ designing a probabilistic world with genetic algorithm as an integral part of it.

As you would have noticed this is just another connection to the Grand Unification Theory. This puzzle does make more sense now. Isn’t it?

Grand Unification Theory (GUT)

The famous book "A Brief history of time" by Stephen Hawkins mentions About the Grand Unification Theory. It is the theory which aims to unite all the formed postulates, theories, corollaries and inferences of various scientific experiments formed so far in the history of the World. This theory aims to give a common reason for all the discoveries made so far thus aiming at a one big theory that can explain to us Why and How the Universe was born, its purpose and some possible explanations of its future. As you would notice as you go deeper into science of space, there is gap beyond which you don’t have observations (illustrated deeply in my first post imagination and limitation.This gap gives birth to philosophy where the key element to our inferences is imagination. GUT aims at discovery of the reason for our existence. It tries to encompass the Newtonian laws and the Quantum world. It is that theory which will create the bridge between the macroscopic world and the Microscopic world.

So far we have failed to create such a theory but the search for it never ends. If you study the happenings of the world and correlate them to such a theory, you would be surprised to find that each event might give clue to the existence of such a theory. You may find patterns all round this history which lead to some possible explanation or the other. Now to look at the GUT my other post Probabilistic World is just another way. In terms of Computer Science Testing I can describe the former approach (scientific one) as the White Box testing and the philosophical approach (read the post "Probabilistic World") as the Block Box testing. People have formulated different approaches to the same but still the common point or the exact term in science "The missing link" (one of the archaeopteryx style) is yet to be found.

In my forthcoming posts I will be writing about the certain clues that seem to be leading to the GUT.
Some examples are cited below:

Mathematical Approach (Number Theory)-Golden Ratio, Phi, Fibonacci Series

Geometrical Approach-Sacred Geometry

Religionist Approach -The lessons from each religion.

Scientific Approach -Era of theories and corollaries.

GUT now is approachable from many directions by mankind.

"Vivid and flawless Life" but headed by probability.

"Brilliance” yet abstracted from us its complexity.

The reason that we see and the reasons we don’t,
Randomness we see and yet there are patterns.
Hence the name "randomness is almighty".

And wondering from this point if view, we have the GUT itself. GUT is thus aimed in different ways and each way is given a different name. Do you see the pattern of diversity born from it self right here?

(Keep reading for some interesting stuff that I will be posting and that will give you further insight into the GUT.)

God's Theory

The world is going round and round and there are many reasons for that.
One of the most controversial issues is the existence of God. In many ways it is proved that he really exists and in many ways not. Religion is one way in which the rules of heaven are explained to us. Though history proves that there have been many wars, conflicts, riots for religion, it’s very difficult to find the reasons behind this because human faith has reached a point of no turning back in this respect.

Let’s go back to the times of man's first existence, and assume that we don't know anything. Imagine yourself in a situation where you never knew what life was meant to be.
We prowled about like animals into the vast sea of knowledge and such has been the case of fear and survival.
As humans dived into the deep sea of faiths and beliefs, he discovered so many things. There wasn't a soul which couldn't be influenced by these beliefs. No one did question destiny. We all dived together in the sea of blindness. The very question of a difference in thought separated us from each other. From a man of unknown existence we turned into Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Jains, Jews, Christians and so on.

And down the memory lane just ask ourselves the question, what is all this leading to? Are we living our life or are we living a lie? There's no time to react or to think because we are so busy in our activities.
We have wandered far from our thoughts. We exist today as none other than puppets moved by thoughts and expressions not ours. We have been doing what we are told to, never ever do we raise a question about all that is happening around us. We are afraid of god, but there was never a god who wanted us to be like this. We believe what we never knew and we support things and thoughts that we never thought about. If all this activity is for good, then everything would be running smooth as you would say. But misery exists as a carcinogenic cell in everyone's mind.
You give it a chance and it will multiply to death. It was for us to discover that unless we practice what we believe we will never realize what we have been up to.

Coming to our Indian society and its principles, there is a lot to tell, a lot to believe and a lot not to. When we constrain ourselves in the social sphere, we reduce our thoughts to accept just what we are given, and live and die in this sphere. And the one, who wanders out is given a bad name. He is sort of a criminal in Indian society.

Come out of your shells and take a look at the real world. There’s much to discover than just visiting a temple every weekend. In a place where religion matters so much, it’s been made a survival guide, place where the hard text rules and your mind is hibernating in wondrous worlds. If you really know something, know it to the best of your knowledge. And in the field of existence there is a lot to discover and there is a lot to discard.

Do your self a favor and get to the originals. Leave behind all that u learned form those who never knew what they learnt. It’s really difficult when the world turns you down and you got nothing but your faith and beliefs. Believe in god and have faith. But ever let your faith be practiced in human kind, because god's grace should be always in his hand.

There are some things that you never wanted and some things you wanted to take. Life is a lesson and you will learn it when you are through. Spirituality is a reason for thought, it is an impetus to another world, where illusions rule and not your old desires. You really need it when you are an affected soul, and you need it to live life the way you have been living, its cold and its hard but if you have the courage to face it all then you are welcome to the world of truth, where you will be a child listening to the same old lullaby but this time it will really mean to you and you will get the essence of life away from pride and away from hard earned facts of life. You will feel like never before. The look in your eyes, the glory of your soul, which God always wanted to see that is the prayer, that really holds on. Remember there's a light in every soul that come out to discover the child in us and have your faith in god enhanced and hear the sweetest lullaby of your life! It’s very easy to criticize a thing but it’s really hard to appreciate the same thing. It’s easy to make a promise but very hard to keep it. It’s very easy to say yes to whatever you have but it is very difficult to accept it. It’s easy to fall in love but it’s very difficult to keep it.

And the last remark- it’s very easy to think what you have in mind but it is very difficult to communicate to others.

Black Rain

Black Rain

Burning oil got over
the lights that escaped
never to return bright..

stars shine deceived
obscured by clouds of the night sky

a few hearts scattered
a few more on list

drops rushing down in gravity
a wall comming down in uncertainty

a reaction is the skies
the effect on the ground.

a few men marvel their creations
and make a lot more suffer

a few sleeping people wake up,
watch the rain,
and they carry their belongings inside ,trying to protect
and soon they give up...
the property,the humanity.

everything in fall and people upside down,
blown away by the river.

created by skies,as the water falls
down blend in human color.

rips apart the bonds,
spills over the limits,
and cracks the surface,

while the earth sleeps,
its raining all clouds...BLACK RAIN.

(now let me see ur inferences...)

Probabilistic World

Alas the sailor said if only I waited. I could have avoided the storm.

If only he was aware of the choice at any near higher level, would he have the ability to know what he was thinking was already thought.The coin has 2 choices, heads and tails. You toss them many times but you cant be sure of 100 % predictability.Further the coin has only 2 chances, imagine what other events in our life can have.

One of the interesting things to note from that astrology refering to sun-sign is that it was written that I have management skills not programming skills.
Its sad, how this world visions skills at such lower levels, it further an irony that the judgment of prediction is also based on such levels.

So the real thing is a probabilistic network game, programmed on a network, our world.The boundaries exactly set and its not possible to see beyond it unless we ourselves are outside.This feels much like the Matrix Quote by Oracle-"we can never see past the choices we don’t understand".

Such an Oracle ,a probabilistic gambler exists in each one of us, differences occur in the form we rate our ratings for probable events. This gives birth to "Belief" and its extreme form is BLINDNESS which is closely linked to 'love'.

We don’t really need implementation details here as to which part of the brain, which hormone secretes this(its hard coded-meaning no freedom of choice there)our area of concern is the control which orders the secretion of such hormones and cause the events. This exactly is controlled by the above stated probability.

Philosophy is prediction, it is thinking out of the world, because our basic notion itself is to know what's happening outside this boundaries.ALL this can be wrong game ,Everyone plays some game, lets play this one.So basic requirement is to understand the probabilistic network,to understand you have to first find out patterns that exist in the real world.Many researchers, scholars and writers have burned their life out and have given us the most important verdict-

"There are patterns but the reoccurrence is not a pattern"

Which means there are patterns in life but how they occur,when the occur and when next they will occur is random and difficult to predict.Now, here's the catch-that exactly is the point which I want to make. This verdict gives the hard proof of the probabilistic network around us.

The question that eventually arises in our mind is if its probabilistic and random how can boundaries exist?

Good Questions-but there lies the solution. Here comes the concept of the program that spawns this probabilistic network, one that assigns the probability chances to each events. For example-

In our numeric system, our probability sum is always 1.lets take the coin again and say heads has p(0.5) and tails p(0.5) which when summed up leads to 1.

Thus you can see the boundary and hence the events can never cross this limit. The spawning program also has checking functions to check this.The elements input to spawner program would be events,probabilities,boundaries-Once started we have certain targets to be achieved and rules encoded to get there, now the network needs to run over several runs to converge to that desired target.

The output-
Inside what we have is a living world, a world streaming with life!

Tribute to Life

i dont know...i dont know

there are so many things i dont know
yet there are so many more things i dont know
and there will be so many things i will never know
and yet there will be so many things i would want to know

till this land cracks
and this earth blasts
i will try to know

every drop becomes an ocean
everything that was clear becomes a confusion.
today tht is present tomm its past.
the sun is in erosion

i dont know...i dont know

there are so many things i dont know
yet there are so many more things i dont know
and there will be so many things i will never know
and yet there will be so many things i would want to know

solar systems,quatum molecules
computer systems,molecular biology
so much more..u never know!

the 'degree' in time
the winner always rhymes

where do you want to be?
you dont have much of a choice
yet there are so many choices
what we see is not always what we get

what we make out of it ..
what our eyes see..
could be wrong..
but the sight and destination arent..

knowledge and us,inseperable life

there are so many things i dont know
yet there are so many more things i dont know
and there will be so many things i will never know
and yet there will be so many things i would want to know

and yet again...
i dont know...i dont know
Imagination and limitation

(Times have changed and so has my blog,but not to forget my past because of which i am here today!)

The wonder of imagination is seen everywhere, in out work and the results.mankind and his innovative activities list the vastness of work and imagination.Imagination is the power to think and equally the power to create the very features that we inherit from our creator.About the last book i read "probabilities of the quantum world" by daniel danin explains the very nature of imagination,the human development with the time.The book aslo speaks of the limitations that one percieves.

Imagination leads us to new world of thoughts,new ideas and probably a way to conceive the ideas into our work.The wonders of research of scientists was emulated in that book starting from the macroscopic world begins the observations.Observations are governed by the imagination,in some way or the other,our imagination leads us to the observation.The observation leads us to research and the research to our work.The book talks about the macrospopic observations lead to new discoveries and the quest for the microscopic developments and research.The path between classical mechanics and birth of the quantum theory.The probablity of the quantum mechanics were based on conflicting ideas,rejected at first and became unavoidable with time.But again the world has new ways,the limitations and imagination alternate at every phase of life.

However imagination has limits -that they say is the end of the road.Like every thought that flowers and blooms into a beautiful idea,we humans like the thoughts of the creator bloom here.Bright and beautiful but there is an end,the limitation.No thoughts will ever die and no imagination ever ends.the limitations that they say is the road to a new thought a new world, a new area of observation and research and so based is the history of mortals,us in every time and space,our resplendent ideas flower and end of imagination and limitations there is no end,there is imagination and limitations.Their connections and implications however lead us to a new world of imagination again has no end.Inevitable as every thing connected to our world.

(This was my only article posted on my previous blog ,wel a fresh start now and a promising world tommorow)
