Chemical production is one of the things we associate with life, and its is presumed that with the chemical combination set and the photoelectric potential set, some began to appear from sources within the colonies. Of these chemicals is one substance that was introduced to the colony through random production, and was so successful as to insure its selective production as well as the continuance of compounds related to it – glacial acetic acid.
Acetic acid is more commonly known as vinegar, and glacial acetic acid is a type which has the additional property of having a freezing point just slightly above that of water.
If you are among the chemists that are to study the Lattice, molalities, chemical chains and the force redistributed within, the change of state for glacial acetic acid is going to present a major avenue of modeling. For the rest of us, understand that when the individual molecules which are the Flat’s glacial acetic acid change state, they are capable of transferring that energy almost directly into the molecules around them and removing the energy from their environment of photovoltaically charged, low temperature, ion-carrying water, but there is more.
The phenomenon represents a change or state within the Flat at both dawn and sunset. As morning continues on the spring/autumn days the water melts before these chains, permitting them to swirl around in the cell, collecting the other molecular chains in their travels, often lodging them in crack bridges where liquid is already flowing and the electronic transfers can access them more efficiently. As the temperature continues to rise, the acetic acid chains become liquid, releasing their compounds in exchange for energy, to be active in the cell. If electrical stimulation provides the modus for the melting, then those compounds released from the chains are in extremely close proximity to both the random sampling of materials caught by the now melted chain and to the random levels of local electrical charge.
In this way new material types are then added to the cell. In this way, the photovoltaic process drives chemical production. This phenomenon creates the opportunity for there to be six distinct changes of state within every cell on a spring/fall day. This combination of state changes carried on throughout the hundreds of centuries, makes for a staggeringly valid statistical certainty that its occurrence was a significant event.
In every spring/fall day, at sunset, as the water temperature drops to a few degrees above its change or state, the set of glacial acetic acid chemical chains within solidifies. This process makes it possible for other materials to be collected by these floating, charged backbones, which presents a golden opportunity for intermeshing and chemical recombination as the water around them solidifies, compressing them.
For all moments in which these acetic acid crystals grew in the cell, they were also capable of altering the cell’s internal electrical pathways by essentially transferring the high frequency electrical charges through the structure of the crystal rather than the surrounding cellular fluid. If enough of the crystals present, the capability existed for a crystalline Lattice to “short circuit” the liquid surrounding it by becoming the entire circuit between two or more electrical sources (cracks).
Like all shorts, this causes unusually high voltage potentials to be rapidly transferred across the cell and thus throughout the maturing colony. For those moments when all the pathways of the cell are electrically transferring virtually all power through crystalline acetic acid, the processing of electrically driven functions in the cell are interrupted.
There were also instances where crystal Lattice traverses only portions of a cell. Imagine a cell whose acetic acid chains were not quite capable of supporting an entire bridge between cracks that branch to other cells. If a harmonic within the electrical flow were correct for the acid crystals, they would react to it and tend to form around one of the two cracks, growing outward into the cell. Since the rate of growth is far short of the possible rate of electrical fluctuation, this condition creates the opportunity for discharge of electricity to appear within any portion of the cell, and for the form of distribution of the charges to be as varied as the possible physical arrangements related to the crystal. This demonstrates the dynamics of the power available to the colony. It states that during a non-winter day, the power of an entire colony can be shown to have opportunity to transfer to any point within the colony – even to specific regions within the particular cells as an opportunity to affect individual molecules.
Where glacial acetic acid was first an aid to the development of activity, there occurred a desirability to stabilize and eventually produce the acetic acid, which today insures the existence of those organisms adapted to consume material for its production.
I hypothesize that the advent of acetic acid production among the colonies of the Flat initiated a trend to develop chemical complexes (one or more colonies), which created their own and excess acetic acid using both photosynthetic and photovoltaic energy. If it is possible for the development of these complexes to incorporate with the potential for expansion, then I assert that the growth of surface area for the complex is limited by its ability to adapt to change. Its ability to control its own physical integrity provides increased opportunity to expand into warmer regions, improving the efficiency of the photovoltaic effects. Since acetic acid is a “fixing” chemical, it created better opportunity for those processes within the colony geared to create discrete cell wall material.
The reason I cite glacial acetic acid arises from my opinion that of the early functions to be incorporated by the colonies upon the Flat, the relationship between relative freezing points of the acid and that of water was the first to show importance to the entire set of candidate cells. Through osmosis for all summer days, acetic acid would balance itself throughout the network from those colonies capable of producing it. William Keeton’s “BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE” begins his description of the Krebs Cycle with acetic acid, and it is the first indexed reference to acetic acid in the textbook.
At this point I’d like the reader to take a step back to gain a better perspective on this concept. Vinegar plays an important role in the cycle of so may things. It is the end product of many simplistic organisms and is capable of poisoning virtually any organic process at least to some extent. As humans, we eat it as food. Vinegar and water are the universally accepted hygiene regimen to destroy/inhibit simplistic organisms: wineries dread it as indication of process error, or sell it as a product. The smell of it is an indicator that its source may not be edible. Its presence is detectable by smell or taste.
In my view these colonies were the most successful cells and continued at the “top of the heap” until the advent of colony production of the alcohols, which was the next step. Alcohol permitted the cells to remain active at temperature below freezing of water and to be more chemically dynamic.
From the moment when alcohols began to appear, the advantages of temperature began to broaden, both as a result of lower freezing point and of the more dynamic interplay the two enzymes could manipulate to produce positive results. For a broader range of temperature, glacial acetic acid chains floated in liquid.
It is my view that from these beginnings, the advent of more complex creatures became possible. Organisms appeared which had the capability to remain active at higher temperatures, until we have the micro-organism which must be boiled to be killed.
Mammals have the ability to respond to the drive away from freezing point as a means of defense, and we consider this feature to be superior to the cold-blooded organisms. When we become ill with a bacteria, our temperature normally rises in response.
I have tried to demonstrate that for this planet, responsive stability was in evidence prior to corporal, independent organisms. An electrical system between cells precedes the advent of direct chemical exchange for all instances occurring within the daylight hours for non-winter days. More dramatically, long before a self-contained cellular “life” came to be, its form contained the presence of electrical “logic”.
It is not strange in my society to believe that the species of the world were a thought before they were of flesh. Then it may be possible to accept the presence of electronic thought before the presence of a cellular life to support it.
Barring catastrophic war or disease amongst ourselves, the ratio between the human population versus the rest of the animals will not decrease again, not from our size but the size of our brains. Whales may also forever rule the seas, if that’s what they are want to do. This is about the past. This approach to the advent of cells will provide new approaches to the regeneration of nervous systems and to the understanding of non-viral disease; it will also lead toward better treatment of hypothermia. The computer on which I write this is an extension more of the mind than the physics of the fan blades and whirling discs. It is more electronic than anything material.
So the best example of the beginnings of the Lattice is that you are reading this. The most advanced aspect of the most successful animal on this planet is the extension of the first colony’s electronic engine, one fueled by photovoltaics, with thermally switched logic and maintained as physically corporate by permafrost and the physics of the Flat for a significant period of time. Incorporated was the opportunity to continually develop structure and become more independent. I have tried to express a viewpoint in support of a Lattice describing this era, which will contain parameters of chemistry, temperatures, sunlight and thousands of other conditions. It is to be used to generate computer modeling of the era and to describe ever more refined windows of valid parameters to support its understanding. From this data will come new approaches to the treatment of disease and techniques for genetic research.
The model of this concept is designed to permit the use of computers to express it. Virtually all of the physics to govern the model exist today as a result of attempts to utilize these materials in electronics, the attempts to use electronics in colder environments, and from the study of the effect of chemicals on the human body. I am convinced that the modeling of this entire Lattice as described is within the reach of today’s understanding and computer technology, but as stated above, this model utilizes more of the resources available on Earth during this era, so integration of the disciplines will require significant effort and cooperation between biologists and physicists. I believe that this article is capable of motivating that investigation, so in a sense, it expands the realm begun by the first electronic logic system.
