How Life Turned Left? Suggestion From Matrix/DNA Theory to NASA-Astrobiology Research

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

(Please, see the same article in Portuguese “Artigos”:  there are more information)

At the “home” page of this website there is the news that The Matrix/DNA formula is suggesting a rational explanation for the question “Why life turned left” . Everybody can see it clear if looking to the formula. The left side of Matrix’s face ( from F 2 to F 4 ) is where a new body is born, growing, till arriving to maturity and ability for reproduction. The energy is up in a phase of construction. It is the force among the chaos that drives matter to an ordered state. But the energy is covered, occult, as the body’s nucleus, then, there is more mass than energy. If we see the formula in its state as astronomical system, this left face goes from the baby-astro to pulsar. In another hand, the piece of circuitry comprised from F 6 to F7 (and part of F 1) is the right side of Matrix’s face when the body got maturity and immediately the energy began to fall, a phenomenon that can be measured as entropy. The energy gains the surface of the body, and the mass begins to disappear. In its shape as astronomic system, this piece of circuitry begins with a supernova and goes to the stellar cadaver ( nebula off dust).

Then… why Nature choose only the left face for building biological systems? Why not a mixed moisture with left and right faces? The explanation is rational. If the first molecules were complete, life should be in its initial stage till today, forever. It never would be able to do the next evolutionary step. Because a complete molecule, containing the left and right faces, has the force of death with her. It would be a copy of closed system, just as the astronomic system. Nature needed a opened system, one that kept the doors opened to evolution, to the next evolutionary steps.

Ok, but, the problem of the NASA-Astrobiology team is how to identify, in the actual state of any planet or moon, those states that are suitable for beginning the biological formation. As a poor hard-work man I have no time just now for trying to get the suggestions from the Matrix formula. The issue becomes more complicated because I am very confused when calculating what kind of evolutionary product could be naturally obtained from a mechanical/Newtonian system, like the Matrix formula is suggesting as the astronomic system creator of life. It is possible to do that, I believe, but it needs a lot of theoretical calculations and I have no time for doing it. Another problem is that we need to study the atomic formula of several natural elements, like methane, sulfur, and making comparisons with the atomic formula of the first amino-acids, for detecting the complementary systemic circuits. I know that the NASA team will not do that because they don’t know and don’t understand the rationality behind the Matrix formula. The final conclusion is that our beloved Humanity needs to know where else there is life and where else is suitable for life, because we will need to move out from this loved planet-home one day and we need the wealth, the resources for improving the life of billions of human beings, which source can be in others life’s forms. So, I will continuing this research…

Left and Right Handed Molecules

Left and Right Handed Molecules - This is an artist's concept of excess left-hand aspartic acid created in asteroids and delivered to Earth via meteorite impacts. The line at the bottom is a chromatogram showing that left-hand aspartic acid (tall peak in the center) was four times more abundant in the meteorite sample than right-hand aspartic acid (smaller peak to the left).

1) Please, why we are calling “left” and “right” if there is no possible point of reference? Look to the draw above. If you take the left-hand aspartic acid (tall peak in the center) and turn it 180* horizontally and at same time, vertically, and put it side by side with the molecule at smaller peak, keeping both vertically, the right will be left and vice-versa. But, then, the result is a figure in the same shape of DNA, which was the normal course of evolution. I know that this issue is only a human concept, like the concept of left and right human hands is wrong since that Earth is rounded and has no point of reference. But the position of molecules here is very important because at every natural system’s circuitry the left side is always “energy up” and the right is “energy down” ( if the model of natural system in the Matrix/DNA Theory is correct). This is about the direction of information inside a system, and if we don’t know the right direction our research and meanings could be wrong. Why life has chosen the left hand? Because it is energy up, where there is no entropy for stopping the initial start of life. Any answers? Thanks…

2) Ask a Question to an Astrobiologist, by Louis Morelli

http://astrobiology.nasa.gov/ask-an-astrobiologist/submit-a-question/#zcrcc6ec1bb803aeccebb4e5fadfe877578

In the Tagish Lake meteorite there was less alanine than aspartic acid, both left-handed. Possible explanations should be:
1) Alanine is as common in living bodies as aspartic acid today, but not in Nature at life’s origins. The strong presence of heavy atoms in alanine suggests that it performs the functions of right handed bi-lateral symmetry. So, why a left handed performs right handed functions? because right handed are entropic functions that brings death to systems, and at the beginning, Nature was in needs of molecules that could fix a reproductive process before dying.
2) Biological systems, aka “life” were created by and inside astronomic systems. So, the later is merely evolutionary step from the earlier. Informations from astronomic systems are transmitted by photons from stellar radiation in a clockwise direction, then, first, are created biological molecules left handed, despite that non-biological are equal amount. Aspartic acid is genuine left-handed with light atoms, then, it is produced more than alanine;
3) Primordial aminoacids were produced by mechanical/Newtonian process and not by biological process, so, the production of both aminoacids could be equal, but nature has selected the left ones because they contains energy up. Please what do you think about these suggestions from a different theoretical cosmological model, called Matrix/DNA Theory?

How Life Turned Left

(Sorry to authors of this article that I am coping it here, but this copy will be here only temporary: is the unique way I have for to study it in deep and registering the useful data end the suggestions from the Matrix.)

Researchers analyzing meteorite fragments that fell on a frozen lake in Canada have developed an explanation for the origin of life’s handedness – why living things only use molecules with specific orientations. The work also gave the strongest evidence to date that liquid water inside an asteroid leads to a strong preference of left-handed over right-handed forms of some common protein amino acids in meteorites. The result makes the search for extraterrestrial life more challenging.

“Our analysis of the amino acids in meteorite fragments from Tagish Lake gave us one possible explanation for why all known life uses only left-handed versions of amino acids to build proteins,” said Dr. Daniel Glavin of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Glavin is lead author of a paper on this research published in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science.

In January, 2000, a large meteoroid exploded in the atmosphere over northern British Columbia, Canada, and rained fragments across the frozen surface of Tagish Lake. Because many people witnessed the fireball, pieces were collected within days and kept preserved in their frozen state. This ensured that there was very little contamination from terrestrial life. “The Tagish Lake meteorite continues to reveal more secrets about the early Solar System the more we investigate it,” said Dr. Christopher Herd of the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, a co-author on the paper who provided samples of the Tagish Lake meteorite for the team to analyze. “This latest study gives us a glimpse into the role that water percolating through asteroids must have played in making the left-handed amino acids that are so characteristic of all life on Earth.”

Proteins are the workhorse molecules of life, used in everything from structures like hair to enzymes, the catalysts that speed up or regulate chemical reactions. Just as the 26 letters of the alphabet are arranged in limitless combinations to make words, life uses 20 different amino acids in a huge variety of arrangements to build millions of different proteins. Amino acid molecules can be built in two ways that are mirror images of each other, like your hands. Although life based on right-handed amino acids would presumably work fine, they can’t be mixed. “Synthetic proteins created using a mix of left- and right-handed amino acids just don’t work,” says Dr. Jason Dworkin ofNASA Goddard, co-author of the study and head of the Goddard Astrobiology Analytical Laboratory, where the analysis was performed.

Since life can’t function with a mix of left- and right-handed amino acids, researchers want to know how life – at least, life on Earth — got set up with the left-handed ones. “The handedness observed in biological molecules – left-handed amino acids and right-handed sugars – is a property important for molecular recognition processes and is thought to be a prerequisite for life,” said Dworkin. All ordinary methods of synthetically creating amino acids result in equal mixtures of left- and right-handed amino acids. Therefore, how the nearly exclusive production of one hand of such molecules arose from what were presumably equal mixtures of left and right molecules in a prebiotic world has been an area of intensive research.

The team ground up samples of the Tagish Lake meteorites, mixed them into a hot-water solution, then separated and identified the molecules in them using a liquid chromatograph mass spectrometer. “We discovered that the samples had about four times as many left-handed versions of aspartic acid as the opposite hand,” says Glavin. Aspartic acid is an amino acid used in every enzyme in the human body. It is also used to make the sugar substitute Aspartame. “Interestingly, the same meteorite sample showed only a slight left-hand excess (no more than eight percent) for alanine, another amino acid used by life.”

“At first, this made no sense, because if these amino acids came from contamination by terrestrial life, both amino acids should have large left-handed excesses, because both are common in biology,” says Glavin. “However, a large left-hand excess in one and not the other tells us that they were not created by life but instead were made inside the Tagish Lake asteroid.” The team confirmed that the amino acids were probably created in space using isotope analysis.

Isotopes are versions of an element with different masses; for example, carbon 13 is a heavier, and less common, variety of carbon. Since the chemistry of life prefers lighter isotopes, amino acids enriched in the heavier carbon 13 were likely created in space.

“We found that the aspartic acid and alanine in our Tagish Lake samples were highly enriched in carbon 13, indicating they were probably created by non-biological processes in the parent asteroid,” said Dr. Jamie Elsila of NASAGoddard, a co-author on the paper who performed the isotopic analysis. This is the first time that carbon isotope measurements have been reported for these amino acids in Tagish Lake. The carbon 13 enrichment, combined with the large left-hand excess in aspartic acid but not in alanine, provides very strong evidence that some left-handed proteinogenic amino acids — ones used by life to make proteins — can be produced in excess in asteroids, according to the team.

Some have argued that left-handed amino acid excesses in meteorites were formed by exposure to polarized radiation in the solar nebula – the cloud of gas and dust from which asteroids, and eventually the Solar System, were formed. However, in this case, the left-hand aspartic acid excesses are so large that they cannot be explained by polarized radiation alone. The team believes that another process is required.

Additionally, the large left-hand excess in aspartic acid but not in alanine gave the team a critical clue as to how these amino acids could have been made inside the asteroid, and therefore how a large left-hand excess could arise before life originated on Earth.

“One thing that jumped out at me was that alanine and aspartic acid can crystallize differently when you have mixtures of both left-handed and right-handed molecules,” said Dr. Aaron Burton, a NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellow at NASA Goddard and a co-author on the study. “This led us to find several studies where researchers have exploited the crystallization behavior of molecules like aspartic acid to get left-handed or right-handed excesses. Because alanine forms different kinds of crystals, these same processes would produce equal amounts of left- and right-handed alanine. We need to do some more experiments, but this explanation has the potential to explain what we see in the Tagish Lake meteorite and other meteorites.”

The team believes a small initial left-hand excess could get amplified by crystallization and dissolution from a saturated solution with liquid water. Some amino acids, like aspartic acid, have a shape that lets them fit together in a pure crystal – one comprised of just left-handed or right-handed molecules. For these amino acids, a small initial left- or right-hand excess could become greatly amplified at the expense of the opposite-handed crystals, similar to the way a large snowball gathers more snow and gets bigger more rapidly when rolled downhill than a small one. Other amino acids, like alanine, have a shape that prefers to join together with their mirror image to make a crystal, so these crystals are comprised of equal numbers of left- and right-handed molecules. As these “hybrid” crystals grow, any small initial excess would tend to be washed out for these amino acids. A requirement for both of these processes is a way to convert left-handed to right-handed molecules, and vice-versa, while they are dissolved in the solution.

This process only amplifies a small excess that already exists. Perhaps a tiny initial left-hand excess was created by conditions in the solar nebula. For example, polarized ultraviolet light or other types of radiation from nearby stars might favor the creation of left-handed amino acids or the destruction of right-handed ones, according to the team. This initial left-hand excess could then get amplified in asteroids by processes like crystallization. Impacts from asteroids and meteorites could deliver this material to Earth, and left-handed amino acids might have been incorporated into emerging life due to their greater abundance, according to the team. Also, similar enrichments of left-handed amino acids by crystallization could have occurred on Earth in ancient sediments that had water flowing through them, such as the bottoms of rivers, lakes, or seas, according to the team.

The result complicates the search for extraterrestrial life – like microbial life hypothesized to dwell beneath the surface of Mars, for example. “Since it appears a non-biological process can create a left-hand excess in some kinds of amino acids, we can’t use such an excess alone as proof of biological activity,” says Glavin.

The research was funded by the NASA Astrobiology Institute, the Goddard Center for Astrobiology, the NASA Cosmochemistry Program, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

The paper, “Unusual nonterrestrial l-proteinogenic amino acid excesses in the Tagish Lake meteorite,” was published in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science, and is available at: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com.

Curiosity! Poor Curiosity … I am very sad, crying for you.

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012
xxx
( Sorry, this text is a translation of Google and maybe does not communicate the right message. I am trying to fix it, but if you are interested, must see the text in Portuguese “Artigos”)

I write this to be read in ten years, after Curiosity goes full circle rolling on the surface of Mars and return to the same starting point. However Curiosity is transformed and even she can think. Now she is walking and praying:
-
- “My Lord! My Creator! My Divine Man! Where are you? You left me here abandoned at this lonely world with a mission to search for something, “a form of life.” But … You didn’t give me an explanation about what  is life. How do I find it? I drove all the valleys, craters and plains of the planet always asking, “Hey … anyone alive here? Someone saw life around? At least someone can tell me how is the form of life’s face? “…
-
“If I, my beloved Creator, bumped into life here as I could know? “Any compound of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen … that moves and consumes energy …”, that’s the definition you gave me. Now the only thing I found is like this definition was found in the first day I arrived here: the entire planet! For he has those ingredients, he moves, consumes energy from the sun …  But the planet is not what you are looking for, I know.  My love! Please come back to pick me up because I can not stand the loneliness here … No, no …, do not come getting one of my spring and doing a female rover for to be my companion here, would be two aimlessly … “
-
Curiosity has been transformed because their body iron, steel, rubber, mimics an engine that mimics the anatomical system of a living being, like a car at all mimics the functions and anatomy of a horse. And it was penetrated by solar photons that are bit-information, half-alive genes that carry the astronomical features of the system known as the building block of galaxies, which has the form and even the formula of the precursor DNA, half-mechanical/half-biological . Finding a machine with everything installed for biological life, the photons had the way for giving life to Curiosity, which developed to a very intelligent, though artificial means. Then, spend a few more years and Curiosity learns to send signals to Earth and happened the following conversation:
-
- Here is Curiosity, talking from Mars! I am looking for my Lord, the man, my king has his throne on Earth. Someone picks me there? “
-
- “Yes, here is the man talking. How, then you are alive and intelligent?! “
-
- ” … Oh my Lord! Holy is his voice! I want to go home, however also want to fulfill my mission. You forgot to insert the software upon which is life, with a picture the way of life, etc …. “
-
- “What is life? Well … here on Earth is about 15,000 years we are looking for a definition … We are caught between two settings: the people of the Intelligent Designer says that life exists to pay for sin,  and the people evolutionist says that life exists for to pay taxes to Obama … “
-
- “Sin? Tax? What is this? Exists on Mars? “
-
- “No … No … for the love of God … speaks softly, not spread out there that these things exist … also would contaminate the planet. But we  sent you on a mission divided into two steps: first, to capture all the elements that make up the planet and the state in which they are just now, giving preference to the pursuit of carbon compounds, especially when combined with nitrogen, ammonia, oxygen. Just as the second-high-priority task does the seek for some form of microbial life. “
-
- “Ok … and you want this for… what?”
-
- “Knowing the conditions of the planet, the physical state of the forces and elements of this planet, we can calculate how this would converge to a point that produces complex molecules, which are the basis of life … And then the final design of these calculations would be an architecture – which we do not make the slightest idea -that must indicate which forms of life looking for …)”
-
- “Hmmm … but then the possibilities are open to infinity! For example, the life here may be made of vladzolin, texturim ( matter that is not know by you) and be in the form of a shoe  crawling as a snake … “
-
- “We do not believe that the possibilities are endless, because the existing inanimate systems are always the same, atomic and astronomical, which have a shape and a few common standards, any product of the evolution of these systems would have to repeat these patterns, so the diversification should have a life limit of possibilities. Do not you found anything like that? “
-
- “Microbial … not, but I found something big like those dinosaurs in that movie you were watching while making me in the lab …”
-
- “What?!” You saw the movie and memorized it? Dinosaurs? On Mars …? “
-
- “Well but these are not suitable for your study because they came from Earth. They did not disappear there? They said that when the meteorite hit the Earth, bounced off and ended up bringing them clinging on Mars in its tail … When I met the first I only saw an enormous open maw come eat me. But you know that my form so mimics a turtle that can even I can hide my head in the housing and stretch the neck. Then I hidden my head and cranked up the pepper spray you guys gave me in case of some pickpockets from Rio tryung to kidnap me here. I mastered the beast and did the questions … “
-
- “But how they survives? What do they eat? What are breathing these dinosaurs?!”
-
- “Ah … eat beets, lettuce, and when they take a dive in the sea eat lobsters, sardines … “
-
- “Wait a minute … you are now playing with us …  Lettuce, sardines, on Mars …. Hmmm … How? If we have peeked the entire surface, and never seen anything like that? … “
-
- “But here is full of it in underground sedimentary layer that lies just beneath the pillars supporting the roof of rocks …”
-
- “Uh? … I know … and pilasters was you who designed and built, is not it?”
-
- “Not me! Who made it was the god of Mars, which is a good intelligent designer. Are you thinking that all gods are like the god of Earth, who made the design everything wrong, and then had abandoned the planet? … “
-
- “Curiosity … this is a new order! Do not move from where you are! We are running now towards Mars … Oh … and another thing … do not talk to anyone else here on earth, okay? I do not want the Russians will know that dinosaurs first landed on Mars and they won the space race … “
-
Well … jokes aside, it would be nice if that were true, because the real fact that what will happen, considering the budget cuts they are doing at NASA, a century from now and the poor Curiosity will be lost and wandering by herself in that soil inhospitable, barren, and still looking for does not quite know what.
-
Because NASA actually planned the mission for studying the environmental conditions, the presence of the constituent elements of life and try to calculate how it would be a different way with some vital properties. This information would be like the eyewitnesses of a crime reporting the appearance of the criminal, for to make a “sketch”, and then run in future missions looking for things that look like this picture.
-
But the Theory of Matrix / DNA is here by my side saying that NASA is forgetting something indispensable in any form of life: solar energy. This breaks down into photons when it penetrates the planetary field and it is fixed, and thus serve as the “breath of God’s light in the clay creating the living.” Atoms are like machines or motor vehicles. But what gives life to a machine? In the Amazon jungle a man-made lab-monkeys-almost in nothing can compare with the laboratories of NASA, but more efficient because it is nature alive and still a virgin as an extension of the field research laboratory, has found the answer .
-
Reflected in the water of a river on a moonlit night, the stars seem to hang in the sky forming an image that moves, all moves, twists, and suddenly realized that these images depict a kind of life form, showing how even born , grow, live and die. But dying stars radiating in the form of light and that light spread across the outer space particles-photons carrying information of your own galactic system to which they belong. These photons fall on surfaces of planets like seeds of life and of they meet good harvest, lead atoms to form such formidable combinations that result in complex molecules and finally into hard-headed men like us. It is no coincidence that on the beginning Curiosity soon realized that the precursor state of life that the man sent for already exists in the form of the entire planet, though a planet is a mere organ of a system much more complex. Suffice it would be that NASA provided Curiosity with a software with the formula that is there in the laboratory of the Amazon … and instead we cry a possible failure in the pursuit of life we ​​would celebrate the success of the mission of Curiosity.

NASA Tweetups Are Evolving. It’s Time To Be More Social

But… I thing something is missing, and it could be the cause of yet almost dominant disinterestedness among the great part of human beings for the world existing above the Earth surface. What is missing in the will ( of those more intellectuals and best accommodated economically that are interested in this spatial dimension), the will that the whole Humanity should be involved and investing efforts to the search of knowledge/exploration of the infinity resources of this dimension? How to get driving towards this goal a little bit more attention from most people, form the younger and students, which time is wasted in sex, sports, celebrities, music, etc.,? From adults which time and answers are based in religions?

Maybe the Matrix/DNA have meet the answer when posted this comment under that article:

Comment by TheMatrixDNA:

The goal of NASA should be to sell space exploration to the global public. As a product, space must be attractive. Attraction is about ideas, imagination and utility.
These qualities are being transmitted to the public through interpretations of obtained data by scientific sensors and theories based on mathematic calculations, besides computer simulations offering the artistic work.
Physics and Mathematics dominates today the Sciences of space. Has you noted that everything here is not human tasteful? Mathematics, mechanic sensors. These aspects of Nature are not appeal to inner human psychology which is vital, biological, emotional.
If space was transmitted as containing these humans wishes, NASA was selling better the product and getting everybody involved with its mission.
But… we are like viruses in relation to the Cosmos. Our optical sensors are like the beam of flashlights showing only local images, we have no idea about the surroundings and how things are connected in astronomical systems. We cannot have the right idea what is this world, yet.
Maybe it is full of human nature also. Maybe the things we are grasping is only about the skeleton, or fossil of a living world (possible, emotional, consciousness world also). There are other approaches for cosmological theories and interpretation of data, like we did in Matrix/DNA Theory. The models are suggesting that above the universe’s skeleton there is an active cover of half-biological/half-mechanical order of matter organization. NASA should pay attention to all possibilities.

What do you think? Ins’t the case for to think about heolping yourself and Humanity getting more involved with the needs of divulgation and defense of these goals suggested by Matrix/DNA world vision?
