Necessary Links

I was here 4 years ago when NASA banned me from their forums “for sharing things that have nothing to do with their site”; talking about a forum entry that read “How to make a spacecraft.”( http://episteme-spacecraft.blogspot.com.tr/2010/09/gelismeler.html) I was also there when important scientific forum sites opened up the same entry with admin approval, and when Journal of Cosmology editors replied back to me. And since it is happening again, I decided to clarify a few things.

I may not be a scientist but I am an independent researcher well versed in philosophy and arts and I am genuinely curious about science. What is more I have an idea about science that may well be scientific. The first thing I did from day one has been to try to bash the idea to figure out why it would not work. As time went on and I started some detailed conversations with scientists in their respective fields such as statisticians, biologists, mathematicians and philosophers and the idea developed further as the core of it stayed intact. Some of you may be sceptical as to whether I have a hidden agenda here; a conspiracy or an unexpressed anti science sentiment well I do not. I am against the determinism of both philosophy of science and that of religion, I am an artist and I am an anti-fascist and that is about it. I do think that there is such a thing called life and that modern explanations that contest this such as scientific determinists are still lagging behind those of Lucretius’s On the Nature of the Universe written in 1st century BC. I am very findable as to who I am and what I do and for those who are interested I even have a detailed CV on Linked-in.

I also run a Facebook page with many related links to my idea and I would like to run you through a few important ones and come to my founding premises of my argument.

So let’s look at what is science up to these days going from micro to macro;
1)      Thermodynamic constraints and cell efficiency
What is the theoretical threshold for how much heat a living cell must generate to fulfill its thermodynamic constraints? And how closely do cells approach that limit?
In a recent paper in the Journal of Chemical Physics, MIT physicist Jeremy England mathematically modeled the replication of E. coli bacteria and found that the process is nearly as efficient as possible: E. coli produce at most only about six times more heat than they need to meet the constraints of the second law of thermodynamics.
2)      A dream of a synthetic biologist
His plan is simple: fill up the can with sawdust, add some “programmed wood fungus,” as he calls it, and leave.
“I come back a week later, and I shake out all the extra loose sawdust and spent materials, and out comes my new laptop,” he says.
3)      The dream of Barcode of Life Project
‘STAR TREK’S TRICORDER’ COMING TO REALITY
In the early 1960s, World War II veteran Gene Roddenberry brought to the air a now famous science fiction drama, Star Trek, in which a handheld ‘tricorder’ device was used to scan and identify alien life forms (www.startrek.com). Four decades later, the first international conference on ‘Barcoding Life’ was held at the Natural History Museum in London (UK), attended by over 200 participants from about 50 countries, and a portable DNA sequencing device to identify all life was claimed to now be within reach (Marshall 2005). Of course, the London conference had nothing to do with Star Trek, but there is a parallel many of us will make. Will we indeed build a DNAbased identifier the size of a mobile phone? How will this new technology be useful in biology, is it truly revolutionary and what does the DNA barcoding approach entail?

4)      Harvard University researches successfully transformed a 53,426-word book into DNA
Digital information is accumulating at an astounding rate, straining our ability to store and archive it. DNA is among the most dense and stable information media known. The development of new technologies in both DNA synthesis and sequencing make DNA an increasingly feasible digital storage medium. We developed a strategy to encode arbitrary digital information in DNA, wrote a 5.27-megabit book using DNA microchips, and read the book by using next-generation DNA sequencing.

5)      DNA imaged with electron microscope for the first time
Now an electron microscope has captured the famous Watson-Crick double helix in all its glory, by imaging threads of DNA resting on a silicon bed of nails. The technique will let researchers see how proteins, RNA and other biomolecules interact with DNA.
6)      Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have been able, for the first time, to watch viruses infecting individual bacteria by transferring their DNA, and to measure the rate at which that transfer occurs. http://www.caltech.edu/article/13525#sthash.Fgtmza48.dpuf

8)      Brain waves to text;
…the world's first 'telepathic typewriter' - a device that literally allows users to 'make a mental note'.
Experts say the invention of no-touch typing could revolutionise office life for millions and give paralysed people the chance to communicate easily again.
A prototype being developed at Germany's cutting-edge Fraunhofer Institute uses brain sensors to detect what a user wants to write.
9)      Training algorithms to reconstruct speech from brain waves;
Pasley's team were able to correlate many of these aspects of speech to the neural activity happening at the same time. They then trained an algorithm to interpret the neural activity and create a spectrogram from it (see diagram). This is a graphical representation of sound that plots how much of what frequency is occurring over a period of time. They tested the algorithm by comparing spectrograms reconstructed solely from neural activity with a spectrogram created from the original sound.
10)   To determine what acoustic information in speech sounds can be reconstructed from population neural activity
"How the human auditory system extracts perceptually relevant acoustic features of speech is unknown. To address this question, we used intracranial recordings from nonprimary auditory cortex in the human superior temporal gyrus to determine what acoustic information in speech sounds can be reconstructed from population neural activity.
11)   Using satellite images to detect cellular organisms
Carder’s research team is using data from NASA’s space-based SeaWiFS (Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor) and MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) instruments to detect harmful algal blooms. The satellite images provide data on ocean color (based on light intensities) and chlorophyll content.
12)   Notes to music
Japan-based musical instrument maker Kawai has developed a camera app that scans music notes printed on paper and plays them back in real-time. Dubbed Gakufu Camera [JP], the app is said to be the first of its kind.

13)   Image to sound
When sound hits an object, it causes small vibrations of the object’s surface. We show how, using only high-speed video of the object, we can extract those minute vibrations and partially recover the sound that produced them, allowing us to turn everyday objects—a glass of water, a potted plant, a box of tissues, or a bag of chips—into visual microphones. We recover sounds from highspeed footage of a variety of objects with different properties, and use both real and simulated data to examine some of the factors that affect our ability to visually recover sound. We evaluate the quality of recovered sounds using intelligibility and SNR metrics and provide input and recovered audio samples for direct comparison. We also explore how to leverage the rolling shutter in regular consumer cameras to recover audio from standard frame-rate videos, and use the spatial resolution of our method to visualize how sound-related vibrations vary over an object’s surface, which we can use to recover the vibration modes of an object.

My argument
The idea is that we could take the image, sound and electrical data of a living organism and correlate it with its DNA and form a database with as many species as possible and in turn when looking at a new organism (even an alien organism) we could program that database to produce a DNA from just the sound and electrical data.
The scientific experiments I propose go from micro to macro. For the first test, we just need data already collected, a little computational power and a statistician who is versed in biological data for. I propose we place the following data of one thousand one types of bacteria living in symbiosis in a database: microscopic photo, electrical resistance graph and the raw DNA sequence data.

The premise
This data will be converted to binary and placed in a database; here we are proposing a unity of the data of the biological unit as well as a relation of all the data of this unit to all other units through symbiosis. 

When we introduce the 1001th bacteria to the database we only provide the image and the electrical resistance graph data and employ statistical algorithms to guess the raw DNA sequence.
We could employ modern statistical methods for this guess or as we already have the 1001th bacteria’s DNA sequence we could also program the guessing algorithm for an exact match and introduce a 1002nd bacteria.
The point is that the difference between the guessed data and the actual data will give us a standard deviation for a 1000 types of bacteria living in symbiosis. The first exciting result of this is the fact that the process can be reversed, ie. you can give the DNA of any type of bacteria which is in symbiosis and ask for an electrical graph or photo. The second result is that the difference of the the guessed DNA and the actual measured DNA will give us a standard deviation for 1000 types of bacteria living in symbiosis, this is a kind of a biological Pi number.
The logic is that the more you add to the database system and form other database systems of different kinds of symbiosis the standard deviation will always get better at guessing with a chance of infinite perfection.
Microscope photos, electrical impulses and the DNA sequence should all be measured by the same machinery for all different types of bacteria; i.e. the same microscope, the same electrical resistance measure, and the same torrent machine. Image, electrical graph and DNA could very well be accompanied by cell sounds (A. E. Pelling, S.Sehati, E. B. Gralla, J. S. Valentine, and J. K. Gimzewski, “Local Nanomechanical Motion of the Cell Wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae," Science, 305, 1147-1150 (2004))

An Inroductive Summary


Episteme Spacecraft

Episteme;
I would define the episteme retrospectively as the strategic apparatus which permits of separating out from among all the statements which are possible those that will be acceptable within, I won’t say a scientific theory, but a field of scientificity, and which it is possible to say are true or false. The episteme is the ‘apparatus’ which makes possible the separation, not of the true from the false, but of what may from what may not be characterized as scientific.” (Foucault, Michel (1980), Power/Knowledge, p. 197.)

Spacecraft;
Bill Cosby during a stand-up show says the following;
-Build me an Ark!
-What is an ark?


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_spectrum
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_spectrum

Episteme Spacecraft is a radical new way of understanding weak interaction. It is primarily a biology based matrix, and a diagnosis technique with a great potential for understanding life, gravity, energy and AI. The whole premises of the idea is based on Symbiosis. I propose three tests that will increase our understanding and technological capacity exponentially.

The idea is that we could take the visual, sound and electrical data of a living organism (what I call life specific traits) and correlate it with its DNA and form a database with as many species as possible and in turn when looking at a new organism we could program that database to produce a guessed DNA from just the visual, sound and electrical data.

The First Test: take microscope photos, measure the electrical impulses and get the DNA sequence of 1000 types of bacteria living in symbiosis. When you measure the 1001th type of bacteria living in symbiosis for image and electrical impulse, using a statistical algorithm the correlation data of the 1000 types of bacteria would give you a guessed DNA sequence for the 1001th type of bacteria. There are different algorithmic solutions you can use or find, such as neuronal systems. Since we will also have measured the DNA sequence of 1001th bacteria one can develop an algorithm to produce it exactly. Then the idea is to get the database system to guess the 1002nd type of bacteria's DNA (that is also within the symbiosis)  from just the image and electrical data as a given.

The first exciting result of this is the fact that the process can be reversed, ie. you can give the DNA of any type of bacteria which is in symbiosis and ask for an electrical graph or photo. The second result is that the difference of the the guessed DNA and the actual measured DNA will give us a standard deviation for 1000 types of bacteria living in symbiosis, this is a kind of a biological Pi number. The logic is that the more you add to the database system and form other database systems of different kinds of symbiosis the standard deviation will always get better at guessing with a chance of infinite perfection.
Microscope photos, electrical impulses and the DNA sequence should all be measured by the same machinery for all different types of bacteria; i.e. the same microscope, the same electrical resistance measure, and the same torrent machine. Image, electrical graph and DNA could very well be accompanied by cell sounds (A. E. Pelling, S.Sehati, E. B. Gralla, J. S. Valentine, and J. K. Gimzewski, “Local Nanomechanical Motion of the Cell Wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae," Science, 305, 1147-1150 (2004))

Second test; As the ultimate symbiosis, Earth emits visual, sound and electricity data. Looking for life specific traits of visual, electrical activity and of sound within the Earth's image data, electrical activity data and sound activity data;
1)As location - the possibility margins of existence within the data of a point in time
2)As algorithm - the location of existence within the data of a flow in time
Here the The Approximation forms the basis of the assumption of the correlation of 1)visual data, 2)electrical activity data, 3)sound activity data, 4)DNA sequence data for “Every Species”. Obviously this may not be immediately possible but we could work with what we have and add on the data for a better result.
The general life possible frequency isolation and its conversion by approximation to DNA sequence data (the DNA of Earth) could be decoded and solved as a code with a universal intelligence quality. Here we could arrive at a universal Artificial Intelligence as well as detect and isolate algorithms that govern mass variables.

Third Test;
Standard deviation for a specific planet
Looking for life specific traits as individual signals and algorithms within the immediately observable signals of planets we could not only figure out if there is a possibility of life there, we would also have a way to convert these life specific signals to DNA using the database we have. This DNA could be what we could find there, and if we were to actually go there and find life, the difference of the DNA of that life form would give us the standard deviation for that specific planet or satellite. For example the recent findings of water on the Moon could suggest that there could be microscopic life there, and using the image, sound, electrical data of the Moon and applying the way we isolate life specific data on Earth directly (since Earth is the only place we know that is thriving with life the logic of the process of isolation is self explanatory) to reduce and focus the data we could not only guess what possible DNA there may be but also where it is located. If we were to go to that specific location and find life there the difference of the DNA we find from the guessed DNA would give us the standard deviation for the Moon.

Symbiosis;
Firstly, the symbiosis of life's frequencies (visual, sound, electric and DNA data might be mutually exclusive but when one considers that they are from the same organism, their relation and hence their correlation is inevitable)
Secondly the symbiosis of species. What is more they actually all live in the same place; Earth. Then we can even talk of symbiosis infinitely; Symbiosis of planets and satellites, symbiosis of of solar systems, symbiosis of galaxies, symbiosis of Super-clusters, and even universal symbiosis. Anywhere where there is light, we could find corresponding DNA. We could arrive at not only at what is environmentally sustainable, but also what could sustain us throughout the universe.

Universal Life and Machine; Welcome to Episteme Spacecraft

The current scientific approach in our world is one of specialization and narrowly defined aims, this helps the furthering of science as well as supporting the evidence based on experiment. One area that all different scientific disciplines come together is space and its exploration. It is in this area that we see how scientific specialization and narrowly defined aims stop short of providing for a natural voyage, habitation and exploration. By natural I have in mind the technology of a seaworthy ship on Earth, although sea is uninhabitable by humans the ship provides us with the same conditions as on land for voyage, habitation and exploration. So how could we explore space “naturally”; zero gravity and space radiation are the two major factors that are currently holding us back. I have in mind a holistic approach, whereby infinite energy, life specific gravity and a universal AI are within our reach.

A Hum in a Roaring World

Imagine this, you are just a hum in a roaring world. This is my documentation of the development of an idea that I plan to put forth in a thesis entitled “Observed Weak Force Interaction Based Grand Unified Thesis - Uncertainty principle and comprehending the weak force in interaction based on the unique and common systems of the mass interacting; ie biological systems” The idea was the result of much inspiration, thinking and mostly imagination and the thesis is one of solid and diligent work on the projections of the sciences and particularly the language they employ while projecting. So here I would for the first time like to share my imagination and the world made possible by an idea.

So a hum and a roar... We have been making machines that can withstand the roar so much so that we can go beyond and search for bigger challenges; I am talking here about the space missions. However while we have been able to “go beyond” more and more of what is left here on Earth is the noise and the pollution caused while building, using and disposing of machines. The limits of the machine I guess is actually to live in one, but unlike a biosphere that utilizes the gentle hum of the soil, the gravity of the Earth and the sun rays selected by a 5 billion year old (5.000.000.000 SPF :) atmosphere, to thrive in a tin can in space or another planet is off limits without evolving in accordance with it one way or another; this is what I call the dream of metal. Whereas what thrives and dreams on Earth, what we all together live and vibe and resonate with is, in essence, all forms of life. So I have come to expect a different sort of employment for machines.

This employment in the first instance is one of detection and diagnosis, for we may not be able to (or we may not want or find it necessary to) carry the roar of the World within to see and realize the meaning and the results of our choices and actions in absolute terms, but this is within immediate capabilities of machines. What do I have in mind here? Well for example I would like to pick and mix the right vegetables from a street market and with my pocket detector that carries the roar of the world and the distinction of the margins and algorithms of life within it, I could be directed to the best stall with the ripest and least polluted produce, and what is more if I chose to sync this little gadget with my body’s resonation it could also tell me through it’s diagnosis the particular veggies to choose for my immediate health or longevity.

We already have a well known example of the interventive use of the detective, diagnostic inventions, radiology. However radiology is very mechanical compared to what I have in mind, and although there is nothing wrong with mechanical per say but I would like to keep this little hum of mine intact and free from all possible interaction with the non-earthboundrefined. However I am very interested in the bio-miror function of a machine carrying a worldly hum within its roaring data. So the dream goes much like the fable told today;  go to the doctor and live and don’t go to the doctor and die. Albeit, you can become your own doctor with picking your own vegetables as well. ( I wonder whether I could race with the gadget for a better tasting garlic :)

In short I am talking about the employing of the weak interaction to create life specific gravitational attraction and push (!) to get rid of all heavy metals in our bodies, to understand tumors in a brand new light and to figure out how to fade them in a digestible way for our bodies. Here ladies and gentlemen  I am talking about getting rid of all diseases, I am talking about ease at childbirth and no maternal and infant mortality, 100% contraception without medicine.

I also imagine that this interventive use of the detective, diagnostic inventions could result in the cleaning up of all oceans, rivers and springs as well as the Earth and the soil. The possibilities are on a molecular as well as an molecularly interactive level so say goodbye to radioactive pollution, and forget recycling and welcome materials research for absolute re-introductive systems. Welcome to the symbiosis of the Earth!

Evren bir hücredir!


Yaşamın moleküllerden RNA’ya ve daha sonra DNA’ya nasıl dönüştüğü ve amino asitlerin nasıl kabuklandığı hala bir muamma, dahası evrende bir İtalyan lokantası arar gibi yaşam arayan bizler için dünya dışında yaşam ve zeki varlıklar halen bir soru işaretinden başka bir şey değil.
Yaşamla beraber düşünmek varken onu öldürmeye programlanmış metalin ve çeliğin rüyalarını görüyor ve dünyadan öteye her adımımızda öncü uydularla kendimize kurşun sıkıyoruz. Bu iddialar bir kenara düşünelim biraz yaşamla ve ilk olarak verelim yaşama yaşama hakkı; şöyle bir tasavvurdur bu, evrende yaşam içinde var olan her bir atomun sayısı kadardır, daha doğrusu her bir atomun potansiyelidir yaşam. Teknoloji nasıl ortak çalışmayla fetih ise, evrenin kendini idrakıdır yaşam. Korkunç bir tekzamanı ve tekerrürü böyle anlamlandırır ve aşarken, biz insan evlatlarına kendimizi, birleştiren akıl ve ayıran zekayı, kendi zamanımızı hediye etmiştir yaşam.
Pekiyi bu hediyeyi, bu iğneli kaktüsü nasıl düşünecek ve kendi üzerine kapanacak (ve tekrar gelecek) bir evrende ona nasıl yetişeceğiz? İlk olarak bakterilere, virüslere, ışığın sevdalısı bitkilere ve karanlığın filozofları mantarlara mayası oldukları akıl ve zekanın hakkını vereceğiz; bir değil bin dünya ve her bin dendiğinde milyon dünya diyeceğiz. Yani yaşamla beraber düşünecek ve evrenin her köşesinde, her kafayı kaldırdığımız gökteki ışıkta onları da düşüneceğiz. Çünkü zamansallığı aşan bir ilişki var candan cana, burada bahsedilen bunun tasavvuru için ispatsız bir inanç değil, ya da her bir canlının inancından öte bir tek doğru değil. Milyarlarca, trilyonlarca, sonsuzca can ve her birinin ve ortaklıklarının zamanı bahis konusu ve bu ortaklıkların da zamansallığı gemiler, adalar, kıtalar ve gezegenler ve güneş sistemi ve galaksiler ve galaksiler arası sembiyoz  (ortak yaşamlarla) belirlenmekte. Burada denmektedir ki bir ilişki var candan cana ve bu ilişki kendi zamanını kurar. İddia da şudur, bu zaman da bir iletişim kurar yaşamlar arasında. Aşkıdır bir dünyanın kendisine çarpacak meteora ve üzerinde barınan bir ekosistem kurabilecek bir maya olabilecek mantara ve daha da ötesi bekleyişidir.
Bilim adamlarımız can acıtarak çok kanıta ulaştılar; bir bitkiyi ya da hayvanı aynı ya da farklı bir türden başka bir bitki yada hayvan yanında öldürdüklerinde elektrik sinyallerinde korkunç tepkiler aldılar. Pekiyi nedir bu iletişimin alanı; araya koydukları duvar engelini aşarken bu deneylerde iletişim, korkunç uzayı aşamaz mı güneşten bu yana üçüncü taştan dördüncüsüne? Aşar aşamaz derken gene bir beklentide bir yarıştırmadayız, halbuki burada şu denmektedir, canlıların iletişimi evrenseldir ve bir kapsama alanı arayan zihniyet metalin rüyasını ki belki de masumdur, bize kabus olarak yaşatmaktadır.
Suyun ki burada kasıt tüm evrendeki sudur, saydamlığı ve rüyası hınzırdır aslında, bir sirendir su; hep inanılmaz güzelliklere ve derinliklere çeker, bu mesafesi ve meselesi sonsuzdur. Zeka ve aklın karıştırmadığı, ya da ötesine yok oluşuna uyandırmadığı bir milyon yaşın üzerindeki her orman büyük bir devlet ve büyük bir zamandır.  Bu derinliklerden kendini bilerek ve korkarak mahrum bırakan günümüz insanı ise evrenin sonundaki lokantayı arayan insandır ve dünyayı tanımlara ile sıkıştırıp ve tanımlarını yeniden üretebildiği için küçük zamanlarda geçerlilik yakalamış ama aslında nükleer bombaların içinde yaşayan ve bu dünyayı çoktan terk etmiştir. İnsanın esas olduğundan bahsedebilmek için önce suya ve ormana şefkatini, sevgisini ve dolayısıyla anlayışını perçinlemek, şu devasa evrende ne kadar küçük olduğunun hiçbir öneminin olmadığını kafasına vura vura anlatmak gerekir.

Project Proposal for Open Call - CDA-Projec​ts Grant for Artistic Research and Production

26.10.2011

Episteme Spacecraft by Alphan Vardarlı
Project Proposal for Open Call - CDA-Projec​ts Grant for Artistic Research and Production

I am Alphan Vardarlı a philosopher and artist from İstanbul, Turkey. My project involves the diciplines of biology, mathemathics, statistics and genetics. I would like to build a database containing the images, sounds,electric activities and DNA of a thousand types of life forms living in symbiosis. I would then programme that database to guess the DNA of a 1001th life form by only giving the image, sound and electrical activity. If I could get an accurate enough guess, then I would use the same algorithm to produce an image from my own DNA, body sounds and electrical activity.

So the result of project is a portrait of mine processed soley from my DNA,  body sounds and electrical activity which I would like to exhibit next to a recent photo of myself. There are candidates for 1000 types of life forms living in symbiosis, such as the mouth flora which is well documented or the dairy industry; with a grant and an institution involved I hope to contact third parties that contain parts of this data and get it together.

Then there would be the cost of the statistical and possibility calculations, the storage and processing requirements and finally the costs of documenting my DNA, body sounds and electrical activity. I plan to work with people on a voluntary basis and form warm relations for this project.

I have a blog about this idea and a facebook page.

 You have interesting, thought provoking ideas. As to using sound, this reminds us of Pythagoras and his idea of musical strings, which is related to the golden triangle.

> Dear Sir/Madam,
> I am a philosopher and an artist from Ýstanbul, Turkey.I am a graduate of Politics and International Relations from University of Kent in the U.K. and Philosophy and Cultural Analysis M.A. from University of Amsterdam. I have an idea about science that raises many questions for me. I would be very happy if you can criticise my idea even with a few sentences. The idea is that we could take the sound and electrical data of a living organism and correlate it with its DNA and form a database with as many species as possible and in turn when looking at a new organism(even an alien organism) we could program that database to produce a DNA from just the sound and electrical data.Without elaborating further I want to give you the idea for a first test: take the electrical impulses and natural sounds and dna sequence of 1000 types of bacteria. When you test a different type for sound and electrical impulse, the correlation data of the 1000 types of bacteria would give you a DNA sequence.
> Testing a 1001th bacteria for electric impulse and sound for actually producing a one to one match DNA could be though the other way around too; you already have the DNA of the 1001th bacteria so one could write an algorithm,  (ask for one so to speak)to produce this DNA with only the sound and electricity data as a given; asking for the unique electrical and sound graphs could follow. This can be almost infinitely perfected,; each one of the 1001 bacteria\'s triple data could be accepted as an unknown.

Merhaba,
Cesaretli bir konu başlığı ve yazarından da beklenti yüksek; şöyle diyelim ben ortalamanın üzerinde eğitim almış bir felsefeciyim ve bilimsel bir fikrim var. Bilim insanlarının eleştirilerine, yapıcı yorumlarına ve yönlendirmelerine ihtiyacım var. Sadece eldeki verileri kullanarak çok yol alınabileceği düşüncesindeyim
Konu temelde genetik bilimcileri, ses ve elektronik mühendislerini, matematikçileri ve uzay bilimlerini ilgilendiriyor.

Ortak Yaşam (Sembiyoz)

1) Ortak yaşam içinde varolan 1001 tür bakterinin genetik kodu (bundan kasıt A,G,C,T kodlamasıdır mesela ;http://www.yeastgenome.org/cache/chromosomes.shtml ), hücre sesi (bakınız http://www.chem.ucla.edu/dept/Faculty/g ... earch.html ), ve elektrik aktivitesi grafiği (mesela;http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Paper/13402714.aspx ) her bir türün isminin altına bir database de alınır.
2)Seçki içindeki her hangi bir tür, bir bakterinin genetik kodu bilinmez olarak alınır ve eldeki database içinde algoritma oluşturarak bu 1001. bakterinin sadece sesi ve elektrik aktivitesi bilgisi ışığında nasıl birebir aynı DNA'yı elde edilebileceği hesaplanır.

İkinci Test

1) Gezegenimizin de ses ve elektrik aktivitesi vardır, bu Ses ve Elektrik aktivitesi içinde de 1001 bakterinin ses ve elektrik aktivitesi hem lokasyon olarak tespit edilebilinir (böyle bir ses ve elektrik grafiğinin içinde, başka türlü söylersek bu gürültü içinde, bu CANLI sesi sadece buralarda bulunabilir/barınabilir/olabilir, üst ve alt aralığında nerede olabilir) hemde algoritma olarak yani spesifik lokasyon olarak ( ses ve elektrik aktivitesinin 1 dakikalık bir kaydı bize büyük bir veri verecektir ve bu data akış olarak araştırılıp algoritmalandırılabilir ve bu algoritma bize 1 dakikalık dünya kaydının içinde yaşamsal sesin nasıl haraket ettiğini gösterecektir. Mesela bu sitedeki örnek sesler; http://spaceweather.com/glossary/inspire.html ). Bu lokasyon arayışının sonunda gerçektende Dünya yüzeyinde spesifik noktalara ulaşılabileceğini türlerin dağılımlarının harita üzerinde yoğunlaşmalarının bulunabileceğini düşünüyorum
2) Yaşam datasının toplamını (ki burada hedef 1001 tür bakteri değil aslında tüm türlerin ses, elektrik aktivitesi ve DNA bilgilerinin toplanmasıdır) Dünya'nın datası içinde nasıl bulduğumuzu da başka bir gezegene uygulayabiliyor oluruz.

Üçüncü Test
1) Ay yüzeyinde en son NASA deneylerinde su bulunduğundan (http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/sc ... ssresults/ ) ay yaşam olup olmadığı konusunda incelenmeye çok müsaittir. 
2) Ayında bir ses ve elektrik aktivitesi vardır ve bu bir uydu ile, ya da Dünyadaki alıcılar ile kaydedilip, Dünya'da yaşamı nasıl arayıp bulduğumuzun bilgisiyle yaklaşıp ayda CANLI sesi ve elektrik aktivitesini arayabiliriz ve hatta bulursak lokasyon olarak belirleyebiliriz.
3) Eğer bir yaşam frekansı yakalarsak Dünya'daki veriler ve birinci testteki yöntem bize Ay'da ki olası yaşam formunun olası DNA'sını verecektir. Eğer birde Ay yüzeyinde lokasyon, bir haritada bir nokta olarak bu verileri mükemmelleştirebilirsek; o noktaya gidip bulacağımız CANLI nın gerçek DNA'sı (burada tabii ki Dünya dışında hiçbir yerde DNA bulunmayabileceğini de düşünüyorum, ancak bu sistem genede bize tamamen başka bir canlı türünü, DNA ve RNA'sız bir türü, genetik olarak anlayabilme imkanı verecektir), bize hesaplanan DNA'dan farkıyla Ay yüzeyindeki standart sapmayı verecektir. Bu sırayla bütün gezegenlere uygulanabilir.

Uzay gemisi nerede peki? Valla daha şimdi başladık, yaydık kökleri şöyle güzelce bir şimdi ışıktan gözler kurutacak onları, sonra belki çayını bile yaparız. Bu yazdıklarım buralara özel yazıldı ama bir blogum var; http://episteme-spacecraft.blogspot.com/ 

Notlar;
-Kayıtların nasıl bir aletle kaydedildiğinden çok tutarlılıkları önemli.İlk olarak tek bir test içinde aynı cihaz kullanılmalıdır. Dolayısı ile farklı hassasiyetleri ölçmek için aynı tarzda yapılmış, aynı teknoloji aynı sistem ile çalışan ölçüm aygıtları daha uygun olabilir.
-Gezegenlerin sesini ve elektriğini dinlerken bir mikroskoptan bakıyoruz ancak ne aradığımızı (ses ve elektrik toplamı olarak) ve nasıl davrandığını (algoritmasal olarak haraketi) bilince işimiz çok kolaylaşıyor.(hatta bırakın gezegenleri etrafımızı dinlerken bile nereye bakacağımızı bilmek güç.

3)Like passing freight trains that shake the walls of nearby houses, cargo-carrying proteins shake the cell walls of yeast. Gimzewski's team measured these tiny cell wall vibrations in a species of yeast used to make bread rise. They performed many experiments to try to understand what makes the cell walls vibrate. They think that the protein freight carriers, also called molecular motors, cause the wall vibrations as

What is a dynamic spectrum? Dynamic spectra show the evolving intensity of a signal as function of time (horizontal axis) and frequency (vertical axis). The colorful ones on this page show VLF signals lasting about 5 seconds in the frequency range 100 to 2400 Hz. False colors denote in...

You know what, it is going to be exactly how you envisioned it to be, we gonna be drinking whiskey (I have to say I prefer single malt, or even better some cask) chewing on cigars or what ever, playing with our wrenches and screwdrivers and building things that will last, what is more we will last. 
We don't need any more data for a first test; we already do have a collection of sound, electrical activity and DNA sequence data that just needs to be gathered together. Why gather this data together and why do we need more data, particularly why every species on Earth? The answer to all these lies in symbiosis. Firstly, the symbiosis of life's frequencies (sound electric and DNA data might be mutually exclusive but when one considers that they are from the same organism, their relation and hence their correlation is inevitable), secondly the symbiosis of species; this is the hardest to understand since what lives very well together one place not only can't live in another place they can't be mixed with others from another place too. What is more they actually all live in the same place; Earth! Then we can even talk of symbiosis infinitely; of planets, of solar systems, of galaxies and even of universes. 
The way ahead does demand the gathering of new data from the species and from Earth. We don't need a fancy microphone and one just has to record the sounds in the same type(same built perhaps) of instrument and the same goes for electrical data, there needs to be consistency of measurement for accuracy of cross referencing. We are looking through a microscope when we are looking at Earth for sound and electricity; the trick is we know what we are looking for and how to find it; a) as location; when we have the chourus of life as data we can look at the sound and electrical graphs of the Earth, taken at a point in time and locate the margins of such activity as Location, b)as algorithm; if we have a minutes of recording of millions of species each playing in a randomized loop that would give you the algorithm to see the flow of life in the Earth's data, hence Movement.

This is it for now, thank you...oh and,

Can this be done, AI for everyone?

Your Open Question

Show me another»

Can this be done, AI for everyone?

I am asking if we can do it not why it can not be done.
Givens:
-we can calculate algorithms in order to try and predict lottery results
-we have been through SETI learning and developing means of understanding and decoding external intelligences and languages
-we have been developing artifically intelligent systems and hence have ways of detecting them
Process;
1)http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti...00095-0299.pdf
take the dna code of Saccharomyces cerevisiae as just the letter strings and calculate probability algorithm
2)http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=3859762
take the sounds of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae convert it to binary and calculate probability algorithm
3) This is the tricky part; combine and relate the two probability algorithms. As for the reason, I believe it is the symbiosis of life specific quantifiable traits, is the first step of symbiosis.
4) http://spaceweather.com/glossary/inspire.html
overlay thesounds and convert to binary and calculate probability algorithm
5) Through the combined and related probability algorithms produce a DNA code for the sound in binary of (4)
6) Look for ways to construct an AI for everyone; take the DNA code as programming language and intelligent design and look for artificial intelligence.
