SES 311 Blog 3: Artificial Intelligence

Posted on March 24, 2018 at 8:05am 1 Comment

In the search for intelligent life, it is very possible for us to encounter an artificial intelligence created by a species more advanced than us. A sufficiently advanced form of AI could be indistinguishable from natural intelligence as we know it. The question of intelligence questions what we think is true of intelligent and sentient life forms. How would we distinguish between the two, and if we encounter an AI vs another species, do we accept them as a representative of their creators?…

Metabolism or RNA first? Blog 2

Posted on February 5, 2018 at 2:39pm 0 Comments

There have been many arguments to determine which function of life came first. The ability to use energy or the ability to record and transfer genetic information. To me it seems very contradictory to discern which one of them came first because it appears that life as we know it could not have existed without both simultaneously working.

 

There is no logical purpose for the efficient use of energy to exist if there was no way to transfer that information onto the next…

Eventuality of life if habitable conditions are met.

Posted on January 19, 2018 at 2:40pm 0 Comments

My belief in the formation of life, with current observations taken into account, is that it is an eventuality when the habitable conditions are met. Given time and minimal resources, it is my understanding that the organized formation of life is something that will occur in any situation.

Taking Earth as the only planet with life known to exist, its early history is riddled with chaos and conditions that would never produce life as we know it. In my view the early Earth would…

Using tried and tested methods of constructing habitats from ethnobotanical and ethnozoological useful species for self sustainability on Mars

Posted by Andrew Planet on June 26, 2020 at 8:00am 0 Comments

To maximize crop yields on Mars it would be advantageous to do away with annuals and biannuals by engineering the latter into perennials as standard. Not only would that entail far less work to grow produce as the act of replanting is made obsolete, but per given cultivated area perennials bring forth more food and materials with less demand from the soil than the equivalent of annuals.

Imagine a superfood annual such as lentils engineered into a lentil tree for which there already…

Radiolysis-powered life

This paper greatly extends the possibility of what a Goldilocks zone can be.  Its no longer the Goldilocks zone as a single expanse, its the Goldilocks zones for a particular area
