In this post, I'll take a brief 'side-trip' to
discuss a delightful little experiment
that's simple and easy to do.
=Please= understand that I'll be using
the experiment as a teaching 'tool' - an
analogy, and that, after discussing it,
I'll return to the discussion of Coulomb-
force interference dynamics.
This little 'side-trip' is =only= to demonstrate
a useful analogy.
I've kept some of the preceding dis-
cussion to maintain the real thread topic,
but have added the 'side-trip' discussion
at the end of it.

A little experiment that's simple and eays to do,
so I hope you'll replicate it.
Materials: one five-gallon pail [try to get a white
one] and a little soil containing organic materials
["topsoil"], a garden hose with a nozzle, water.
Method: Sprinkle about a teaspoon of the topsoil
into the bucket.
Focus the flow of water from the nozzle of your
garden hose into a high-pressure stream, and
fill the bucket with water from that stream,
training the flow on the side of the bucket so
that it swirls the accumulating water into a
'vortex'. [Point the flow as close to horizontal
as practical, but keep the water flowing into
Continue in exactly this way until the bucket is
almost full, then turn off the flow of water, and
observe the vortex =patiently=. [This's easy for
me, I find vortices very-interesting :-]
When it looks like almost nothing's happening
anymore, observe carefully, through the water,
in the center of the bucket's bottom.
You'll see the topsoil collected there, still
'swirling' - and, then, you'll see something that
looks like 'magic', but it's 'just' some neat
What you'll see is the topsoil forming a comma-
like 'spiral' - like one blade of a pinwheel.
And you'll see this 'comma' periodically 'disolve'
and re-form - over and over again.
What's happening is an interaction of the water's
harmonics and 'gravity'.
This occurs with observable periodicity be-cause
the vortex's energydynamics are 'hovering' in the
realm of a threshold, and repeatedly crossing it.
When the threshold is crossed in one direction,
the 'comma' disolves. When it crosses the
threshold in the other direction, the 'comma' re-
[This little angular-momentum + 'gravity' system is
exactly-analogous to a balance settling-in at a
Try it - it's delightful to watch.
What's the 'point' with respect to the DNA-tuning
The 'eddy' currents that're in the hypothesis I'm
discussing can occur in analogous ways, except
that they're all 'Coulomb forces'.
I got started on this line of thought back in the mid-
seventies, when I was working out the role of
neural glia in 'memory'. I was very-impressed by
the experimentally-verified contractile properties
of glia, and saw that these could be produced by
'Coulomb forces', and that, with respect to 'normal'
ionic conductances, they could act in a way that's
analogous to a 'nozzle', but 3-D topologically-
Periodicities inherent in the 'eddy' currents,
analogous to those you observed in the bucket
experiment, would be splendid tuning-forces,
especially when they interact within the endo-
plasmic reticulum, which occurs as a multi-
layered 'spheroid' surrounding a cell's nucleus.
The threshold-'hovering' [disolution and reforma-
tion] constitutes dynamic microscopic "ramp
architecture" which, itself, has excellent properties
with respect to molecular-'level' problems - a mech-
anical analogue would be a fid or a marlin spike
with respect to knots in a rope :-]
The periodicities are nicely-suited to progressive
'folding' that's part-and-parcel to protein conforma-
tion, and the "always downhill-ness" that I discussed
in long-former posts.
The cellular constituents surely difract such 'eddy'
currents, [and they probably self-difract and refract]
and that'd enhance the tuning dynamics, because,
for instance, if the endoplasmic reticulum's 'spheroid-
al structure deformed in a 'Coulomb-force' correlated
way, such difraction [and refraction] within the
periodicities could be rigorously-coupled to experience
iff the constitution of the endoplasmic reticulum shows
variation that can be correlated to experience.
These energydynamics could also tune mitochondrial
function, which adds a whole other 'layer' of tuning
capabilities - low energy output: 'recognize' but
don't 'act'; high-energy: 'recognize' and 'act' - and
all gradations in-between.
Etc., etc. etc.
These are fun possibilities to explore, and Fertile
ground with respect to Experiment.
What I've discussed here is Basic stuff.
Ramping-up it's complexity, a bit, enables it as
a multi-faceted, massively-parallel, prioritizable,
"supersystem" DNA-RNA 'tweezers' :-]
Does what's here help?
Oh, BTW, the thing that's analogous to 'gravity'
within these tuning dynamics is - you got it -
Remember, the rigorous-coupling to WDB2T
must be established and maintained.
That's how nervous systems 'know' the external
experiential energydynamics that their host
organisms encounter, and how front-center
behavioral 'accomodation' to them occurs
[in accord with the functioning of the macro-
scopic neural Topology that's discussed in
TD E/I-minimization permeates everything
in-there, right down to the least-part of the
'Coulomb forces' [which are infinitely-divisible].
Anyway, this's a =highly-simplified= 'picture'
of how I see the =necessary= DNA-RNA
tuning as occurring within nervous systems.
To nail the inherent energy-thresholding dyn-
namics is why I pursued Tapered Harmony
"all the way down" to the least-scraps of 'atoms'.
[It'd be a Great-Advance in Neuroscience if
the ionic conductances could be rendered
physically-observable. I do it in the ol' noggin'
lab, which is why I've spent a =lot= of 'time'
peering into fluids in-motion - all the discus-
sions of this or that fountain [mostly with
respect to TH], were actually 'off-shoots' of
observational experience purposefully-cor-
related expressly with respect to this stuff
Other matter: I reread AoK, Ap6 last night for
the first 'time' since it was written. While doing
so, I realized that I owe some folks an 'apology' -
because that discussion is too 'long-in-the-tooth'.
Substitute all references to "rate coding", "timing",
"synchronization", etc., with the more up-to-date
discussion that I posted in the "Oscillations"
thread 'last year'. All of the above are =artifacts=
of global TD E/I-minimization. [Sorry. AoK is old,
and needs to be rewritten [which is what I've been
doing, 'coloquially', in my online discussions,
which has been the only venue through which I
could do such.]
