How Much of Your DNA is Made Up of Dark Matter?

astronomy, biology

There are many theories about dark matter that have been explained over the years.

While some of these concepts seem questionable, some scientists believe that its possible. One of the more accepted theories is that dark matter contains deformation or “disruption” that is caused by a very powerful particle, perhaps a cosmic void. The particle is thought to cause the observed imbalance between normal and abnormally high energy levels. For those who subscribe to this school of thought, there is evidence that this energy disrupts the normal functioning of a system that is responsible for creating our DNA.

Some of the characteristics of this disrupted DNA include abnormalities, genetic malfunctions, and structure instability.

Although much has been discovered in the last decade concerning the processes and workings of the DNA, the real question is “Is dark matter found in human DNA?”.

Artificial Intelligence Sheds Light on How the Mind Processes Language

Artificial intelligence is an increasingly hot topic these days.

We know that artificial intelligent computers will soon be in our lives, or very soon, but for all we know they could already be here. One of the biggest questions is how will artificial intelligence to change the way we think?In this article, the goal is to shed some light on one of the most important areas: the way the human brain processes language.

When you think about it, the language itself is an artificial intelligence.

Even though you and I may not be able to articulate the thoughts in our head, the thoughts are there, and the ability to communicate is a skill we all have. So, it stands to reason that if you give someone an artificial intelligence like a RACI (rousing area interface data network) embedded in a voice recognition software program that captures a person’s voice, and then it can tell you what they’re saying.

Of course the quality of the voice might vary, but the point is this; that artificial intelligence can be used to enhance the quality of human language.

However, the quality of the message is still up to you.

New Species of Human Aborigine

New species of human ancestor were previously detected from fossils.

These fossils have been excavated from two sites in Dmanisi, Georgia, and South Africa. These recent finds are considered to be the first evidence of a new species of human ancestor that lives today. According to the research paper published by Zimov et al. from the University of Nairobi, Kenya; fossils from south Africa reveal diverse features of early hominids, and fossils from China and Europe imply that hominids branched into three subspecies or species.

Dating methods such as molecular clock analysis, stable isotope ratios, and morphological mosaic analysis were used to identify these fossils. The two fossils discovered were a H. erectus and a H. sapiens. In order to date these fossils the fossils were dated using a radioactive source. The oldest specimen was dated at about 48 million years ago.

The study also revealed the oldest evidence of modern human activities, which is dated at four years ago. During the last million years ago, the ice age appeared, and large glaciers covered the landscape. These large glaciers contributed to the massive sea level rise during the last million years. This sea level rise caused sea levels to rise, which resulted in massive coastal erosion and retreats of various human ancestor species.

How a Tiny Brain Implant Helps Blind Teacher See Again

biology, technology

A very helpful development in science is the development of a human brain implant that allows a blind person to see again.

What most people don’t know is that this new technology was invented by a group of scientists who were working on a more advanced technology that would allow a person with complete blindness to see objects. It’s amazing that after more than half a century the scientists finally developed a device that will help everyone with some sort of visual impairment experience the same independence and freedom of which they’ve always dreamed. Now, these incredible devices will apparently allow the blind and visually impaired to actually go out and experience the world.

Thanks to a small brain implant that was surgically placed into the back of the patient. This incredible development has changed the lives of thousands of people all over the world, but it’s not just this one person taking advantage of this new technology. Millions of people may benefit from this breakthrough as well.

The brain implant works by sending a series of visual signals to the part of the brain that controls the eye movements. When these signals come along they are interpreted by the part of the brain that helps the person move. Because the implant is so small, the person will have no way to tell if their eyes are not seeing properly or whether they are moving correctly.

Did Humans Once Have Tails?

biology, science

One of the most intriguing questions about our evolution is, “Did humans once have tails?”

This is a question that scientists spend a great deal of time attempting to answer. There are many theories that explain the evolution of human tails. Some of the most common theories explain the loss of a tail in human evolution through gene loss. Theories also suggest that tails are lost due to social pressure.

Does the Human Race Need Its Tail? Consider if you will the condition of some of the less than stellar Human Beings on the planet. Is a man with a flabby tail a sign of intelligence? Would a tail have helped humans live more easily in the cold climate without the benefit of thick fur and warmth? Perhaps it would have provided them with a better way to protect themselves in colder environments.
