Creation of Minimal Plasma Cell Systems by Self-Organization in Earth’s Dark Biosphere leading to the Evolution of Dark Plasma Life Forms  Jay Alfred

Abstract
This paper proposes that the visible Earth is sitting inside a low density halo of dark plasma, within which minimal dark plasma cell-systems were generated in the early Earth. It predicts the existence of terrestrial dark plasma life forms which evolved from these cell systems, giving rise to a dark biosphere. The genericmorphology of these plasma life forms is explored and a prediction is made that they would exhibit signature features commonly associated with well-structured plasma bodies observed in the laboratory.

Human Intelligence: The forced integration of two diverse worlds
Junius J. Thomas

Abstract
Life scientists are now taking a closer look at “genomic information accounting” and “information requirements” for the various complex life processes beyond those of the DNA/protein/RNA arena. The quantity of algorithmic information (memory) required for Man’s unique fluency well exceeds the 1.5% genomic change gained by Man in his transformation from Chimpanzee. Thus the Ape had to have acquired such fluency genome by lateral DNA transfer from some other entity long before pressured into use in the overnight 6 Myr Chimp-to-Man transition. Presumably fluency evolved in that entity for 250 Myrs in the vertebrate body’s blind, sound-dependent microbiological world. Full Article


Could a naturalist interpretation and the Palaeo-camera hypothesis explain the relative unity in figurative Upper Palaeolithic art in Western Europe?
Eric Faure

Abstract
Late Eurasian Palaeolithic art spans almost 35,000 years, and although it was made by a succession of cultures, a relative unity suggests common features during this period. Two hypotheses that could explain this unity are developed: a naturalist approach and Gatton’s Palaeo-camera theory (holes in hide shelters as pinhole cameras). As Palaeolithic artists were hunters, natural history could be one of the essential keys to understanding this art in its appropriate context. It was not until the Renaissance, when the camera obscura was used as a drawing aid, that realistic two-dimensional representations were regained.Full Article
