The Nature of Nature: The Discovery of SuperWaves and How It by Irving Dardik,Estee Dardik Lichter

By Irving Dardik,Estee Dardik Lichter

What is every little thing made from? How do issues switch and the way do they paintings? what's existence? In The Nature of Nature, visionary scientist Irv Dardik tackles those questions by way of introducing his discovery of SuperWaves, a unique wave phenomenon whose layout generates what we event as subject, area, time, movement, power, and order and chaos.

Simply placed, the SuperWaves precept states that the basic stuff of nature is waves--waves waving inside waves, to be designated. Dardik demanding situations the rationality of accepting a priori that the universe is made from discrete debris. in its place, through drawing from his personal discovery of a special wave habit and mixing it with clinical evidence, he exhibits that each unmarried factor in existence--from quantum debris to complete galaxies--is waves waving within the particular development he calls SuperWaves.

The discovery of SuperWaves and the tips in the back of it, whereas profound, will be intuitively grasped via each reader, no matter if scientist or layperson. pertaining to every thing from quantum physics to gravity, to emergent complexity and thermodynamics, to the origins of wellbeing and fitness and affliction, it exhibits that our well-being, and the overall healthiness of our surroundings and civilization, depend on our figuring out SuperWaves.

The Nature of Nature is an soaking up account that mixes Dardik’s contrarian examine the historical past of technology with philosophical dialogue, his personal groundbreaking examine, and desire for the future.

Biotensegrity: The Structural Basis of Life by Graham Scarr

By Graham Scarr

the idea that of tensegrity as a structural layout precept has been round because the center of the 20th century and is presently seeing a major bring up in curiosity. From early forays right into a new kind of sculpture it really is now included into structure and the engineering of deployable constructions in house, and can also be attracting the eye of biologists, clinicians and others attracted to sensible anatomy and circulation. Tensegrity versions emulate biology in ways in which have been unattainable long ago, and the rules underlying their building supply a extra thorough overview of organic mechanics at each measurement scale. This e-book is a reaction to the commonly asked query, “what is (bio)tensegrity”, and should motivate the reader to take a deeper examine organic constitution and locate their very own methods of making use of it. it's a point of view that recognises that every one typical types are the results of interactions among common actual forces and the basic legislation that keep an eye on them, and that an appreciation of those basic precepts ends up in a greater figuring out of the human physique as a functionally built-in and hierarchical unit.
‘Biotensegrity – the structural foundation of lifestyles’ provides an in depth and total photograph of tensegrity/biotensegrity and brings every thing jointly for the 1st time, from its discovery and simple geometry to its importance to useful anatomy and biomechanical conception, and is a miles wanted reference; it's a part of the elemental technology that underpins medical reasoning.

Formation and Cooperative Behaviour of Protein Complexes on by Ksenia Guseva

By Ksenia Guseva

With the purpose of offering a deeper perception into attainable mechanisms of organic self-organization, this thesis provides new techniques to explain the method of self-assembly and the impression of spatial association at the functionality of membrane proteins, from a statistical physics standpoint. It specializes in 3 vital situations: the meeting of membrane proteins, the collective reaction of mechanosensitive channels and the functionality of the dual arginine translocation (Tat) procedure. utilizing tools from equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, normal conclusions have been drawn that exhibit the significance of the protein-protein interactions. specifically, within the first half a normal aggregation dynamics version is formulated, and used to teach that fragmentation crucially impacts the potency of the self-assembly technique of proteins. within the moment half, by way of mapping the membrane-mediated forces right into a simplified many-body process, the dynamic and equilibrium behaviour of interacting mechanosensitive channels is derived, displaying that protein agglomeration strongly affects its wanted functionality. the ultimate half develops a version that comes with either the agglomeration and shipping functionality of the Tat procedure, thereby offering a finished description of this self-organizing process.
