How about this......
The Universe is not infinite and expanding, but shaped like a pinch bottle, where energy flows around this figure eight in its infinite varieties...iand directions....criss crossing and combining coalescing into the physical realm..
the physical portion is what we percieve but the other nine tenths is pure energy and acts as an ever flowing river with islands of combined wave forms.....the physically manifested part
The "creator consciousness is the center around which this energy flow orbits......
In other words the universe is the aura that surrounds the essence of the creator consciousness.....nah.......
"junk DNA," is actually as yet undiscovered programming sequences that in actuality are the "script" for your WHOLE life......The idea of "Free Will" is an illusion because the DNA have so intensly scripted your part the cosmic soap opera.....
This 9/10 of as yet not understood double helix is the more detailed instructions which we do not percieve to be operating much of our automatic systems...(sub conscious, reactive, regulatory etc....) At very best then, we are only free to basically ad lib our lines as our containers stumble through their programmed parts...............the sole part of ourconsciousness in all this is simply to experience the emotions.....which are after all
the very essence of our experience,(memory being only an emotional prompt for re experiencing those same emotions....
but ill be back
I propose: In the future humans will no longer eat food. I actually believe that taking physical matter into our bodies to sustain ourselves is primitive. When humanity is spiritually freed by the crippling effects of religion, we will be able to take all of the life sustaining prana out from the air that surrounds us to nourish ourselves in every way we need.
There will be no more hunger or starvation because the universe already supplies this form of energy for us in abundance, we have not yet learned how to use it efficiently.I will explain this in greater detail in another thread that I have been working on, I just couldn't pass on the opportunity to get a little feedback on my theory.
Chloroplasts are solar-power plants of the plant cell, just like the mitochondria that animals and fungi rely on (plants have mitochondria too though). Just as mitochondria were once proteobacteria, plastids (of which chloroplasts are the most noteworthy) were once cyanobacteria, and both still have their own DNA and a very bacteria-like membrane. They have evolved to get very comfortable with the relationship, offloading much of their essential genes to the host nucleus, and now they can’t live without their hosts (then again, we can’t live without our endosymbionts).
This means, however, that if we humans wanted chloroplasts for ourselves, or our livestock or pets, we would need to genetically modify the host animal to express proteins required for chloroplast function. It has been estimated that about 70-90% of the genes required for chloroplast function are provided by the plant’s genome (Martin et al, 1998). In the case of the sea slugs, some of these genes appear to exist in the animal’s genome, although probably not enough for the chloroplasts to be able to reproduce. Which is why the slugs use kleptoplasty - removing the chloroplasts from their food.
It would probably be most feasible for chloroplasts, along with the required genes, to be added to skin stem cells and applied as a skin graft, as there is a lot of research in this area for burns victims. This approach has been used to produce proteins in mice (Larcher et al, 2001), and so should be feasible for producing sugar by photosynthesis in humans. At first this graft may require regular replacement, but eventually the chloroplasts will be sustainable within the skin.

Like Q testing captain Picard on star trek for the first time. When he says that for an instant Picard broke away from everything he knew and was opened up to the limitless possibilities and so he saved mankind by proving that we were capable of such a feat.....edit on 22-11-2012 by zedVSzardoz because: (no reason given)
OK I'll bite, I think ( & yes I have thought this allot) technology has got to the point that A.I. is TPTB & we just cant see it. Look at the web, it's in a sense "immortal" you can't kill it,if the grid went down today there is still military networks that would survive, and the world has come to the point we can't live w/out it. I feel that allot of the worlds issues are smoke & mirrors to blind us from whats going on. ( & no I do not mean like the matrix) the beast to kill the world is the one we make, & its growing right in front of us yet blinding us with its snake charms. I am not saying that robots are going to take over the world, or use us as battery's, I think it likes the control that it has over us as is why mess up a good thing right, we fight to build it better, don't you think if we could make a smart phone that we could make a more sustainable world.
