 A colony of genetically identical E. coli bacteria is actually a mob of individuals.

 

Understanding Individuality :

Dr. Michael Elowitz, Physicist at California Institute of Technology has conducted experiments on colonies of genetically identical (clones) E. coli bacteria under identical conditions and discovered that they behave in different ways. The bacteria have fingerprints of their own and even when they share the same genome, they could still be identified as individuals.

THE LAW OF INDIVIDUALITY :

Just like the Law of Conservation of Energy, I propose the Law of Individuality which governs all the living entities. Either with the same and identical genome or with different genomes, all living organisms have no choice other than that of living as ‘Individuals’. The genes and the genetic codes function in accordance with the Law of Individuality. I would describe Individuality as a Trade Mark. It is the characteristic of a biological entity. Genes and the genetic codes are the tools that an organism uses to express its Individuality. Each organism assembles its own kind of protein molecules to define its identity and to defend its existence in the natural world.

Each antibody molecule bears two identical binding sites consisting of six b-loops.
Nobel Laureate, Dr. Steven Chu ( United States Secretary of Energy), former Professor of Physics and Applied Physics, Stanford University has described that molecules can exhibit a surprising degree of individuality. In experiments that examine the physical behavior of single molecules, Stanford researchers have discovered that identical polymers; long, flexible, spaghetti-like molecules that are found in everything from plastics to living cells;  UNFOLD in a variety of ways even when exposed to the same experimental conditions. Dr. Chu had stated : “We discovered it because we have developed the ability to visualize and manipulate single molecules.” He had further observed that, “Only by looking at individual animals you can get a true sense of the diversity of species.” Dr. Chu researched Biological Physics and Polymer Physics. Dr. Chu’s research in Polymer Physics made use of individual molecules of DNA to study Polymer Dynamics.
We define our identity in the natural world and defend our existence by deploying unique protein molecules. Our unique genetic code determines the protein molecules that we use. The genetic code is made up of unique DNA strands that express Molecular Individualism. It arises from exceedingly small differences in the initial configuration of the polymer.

WHOLE DUDE – WHOLE MAGIC

If you eat some sweet Garden Peas, you can directly TASTE the MAGIC of CREATION.
Gregor Mendel, an Austrian monk demonstrated the inheritance patterns of the Garden Peas, PISUM sativum through breeding experimentations in his monastery’s garden. There are twenty amino acids. Protein synthesis involves the unique and Creative ways of arranging these amino acids into chains as polypeptides. Protein synthesis is recognized as a “CREATIVE” process because the product it creates has the ability to impart a unique sensory experience. We can distinguish plant and animal proteins by their distinctive characteristics in terms of TASTE, FLAVOR, and TEXTURE. Man uses his culinary skills to further improve the PALATABILITY of the proteins he consumes as food for his existence.

THE SQUIRREL STORY CAUSED ME TO EXPLORE HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS
The Ann Arbor News story about a mother squirrel’s angry attack on a school teacher has caused me to explore the biological aspects of consciousness. Parental care or Maternal instinctive behavior is an aspect of social behavior exhibited by all animals. Being ‘conscious’ gives us the ability to interact with our environment and display an appropriate behavioral response. A living entity is always ‘conscious’ of its own existence. A living entity always exists in a state of consciousness. A living organism or a living cell responds when exposed to a stimulus. Consciousness is evaluated by conducting simple tests. Apart from consciousness being a survival mechanism, it helps an organism to maintain its existence by obtaining energy from its environment. The Energy Provider and the Energy seeker maintain a state of constant relationship. Human consciousness would always propel us to establish a connection with the ultimate source of ENERGY or POWER.
Kindly review my thoughts about maternal instinctive behavior, consciousness, and the energy relationships at my blog post titled ‘A Squirrel Story to explore Consciousness’.

WHOLE DUDE – WHOLE SUFFERING

EARTH, ‘PRITHVI’, OR ‘BHUMI’ IS DEDICATED TO PRESERVE THE COSMIC BALANCE AND UNIVERSAL ORDER. 

EARTH DAY CELEBRATION 

In the United States, Wednesday, April 22, 2009 is celebrated as Earth Day. This tradition of celebrating planet Earth began in April 1970 and it intends to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment. Earth is the natural home for all humans, plants, and the animals that inhabit this planet. We need to learn to keep this home safe, and healthy for the sake of our future generations. Earth’s resources should be used in a wise and judicious manner. We need to accept the stewardship of the planet and act to preserve and protect the plants and the animals that share their lives with us. 

INDIAN TRADITIONS ABOUT EARTH’S ROLE 

In the ancient Indian scripture of RIG VEDA, Mother Earth or PRITHVI MATA is described as the primordial goddess. She is also known by the names of Bhumi, Dhra, Dharti, Dhrithri, and Dharani all of which refer to her sustaining beneficence as “that which holds everything”. Akaasha(SKY), Vaayu(WIND), Agni(FIRE), Jalam or Varuna(WATER), and Bhumi or Prithvi(EARTH) are described as ‘PANCHA MAHA BHUTAS’ or the Five Great Elemental States of the material Nature or PRAKRITI. She is the consort of Lord Vishnu, the Divine Protector of the Hindu Trinity. Earth represents the female principle of fertility and is the source of all vegetation and is responsible for precious and bountiful crops and fruits that it yields. She is the sustainer and the preserver of the Cosmic Balance. She stands up to the rights of the living entities and defends them from Cosmic Forces and Energies. She is associated with the concept of a just and stable universe. She is dedicated to the maintenance of ‘DHARMA’ or Righteous Action which defines the Universal Order. She bears witness to all of our actions and particularly the actions of miscreants and evildoers who transgress the rights of weak and innocent denizens living in her domain. She mutely observes the acts of depredations and oppression. She endures all kinds of suffering with calmness and displays a great quality of patience. However, there are natural limits to her forbearance.When stressed beyond her limits of threshold and particularly to uphold the vital principle of DHARMA, she cries out aloud, calls for the attention of all gods, and insistently demands for the intervention of Lord Vishnu, the Divine Protector. 

PATIENCE IN SUFFERING 

Indians are encouraged to develop perseverance in the face of trials and tribulations of many kinds. The idea that Mother Earth is a witness to their pain and suffering provides man a sense of comfort and enables man to endure suffering with a sense of hope and an expectation of deliverance. Indians are culturally driven to face calamities with calmness as they hope that Mother Earth would intervene on their behalf. Being patient is a quality that is imparted to the human character by Mother Earth. 

A HYMN TO PRAISE EARTH GODDESS BHU DEVI 

Vishnu Shakti samutpanne, Shanka varna Mahee ta le, 

Ane ka Ratna sambhuu te, Bhumi Devi Namo stu te. 

Earth Goddess, Bhumi Devi, you originated from the Creative Power of Lord Vishnu, upon earth you display the complexion of a Conch shell, you can produce a variety of gems and precious stones. I join and press my palms together and bow my head to offer my salutations to you.

We can directly experience the power of Creation that gives a natural sense of Joy by simply holding our own baby.
Creation is defined as to make or bring into existence an object, something new, original, one of its kind, unique, and distinctive. and to produce an object through imaginative skill or inspiration. As per the Theory of Creation, the natural world in which we exist is the physical manifestation of an act of Creation. People all over the world directly experience the natural phenomenon of Creation. Creation is not merely a past event. Creation is an observable phenomenon of our present times. Creation is a phenomenon that would repeat and perpetuate itself as long as planet Earth exists and the Cosmic Balance, the Cosmic Harmony, and the Cosmic Connection prevails. Creation is a Reality that is very evident by its own nature. Creation is a self-evident Truth.

SUPREME LORD HARI, RAMA, AND KRISHNA – AN ELIXIR TO DESTROY THE POLLUTING EFFECTS OF STRESS
Humans appreciate the value of sound as a tool for obtaining relaxation, rejuvenation of spirit, for mental amusement and entertainment. The soothing effects of sound can provide us mental comfort, help in the healing and recovery process. Indian traditions claim that vocal sounds could be used as a medicine and the sounds could exert medicinal effects by taking advantage of the mind-body connection. Sound can undoubtedly affect our physiological response to stress. A person can become stress-resistant by simply chanting, or repeating the words Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare; Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama, Rama, Hare, Hare. This magical formula or Mantra could be said at any time of the day or night, and does not demand any prior preparation. It could be used while the person is fully engaged in other physical activities and does not require any special skills or talents like singing abilities. The words could be repeatedly in total silence and the chanter recites these words to himself and mentally recognizes and hears these sounds.

Hypothalamus, Pituitary, and Adrenal glands play a central role in the Stress response.
We live in the age of “STRESS“. Indian traditions identify the present times as “KALI YUGA”.The accelerated tempo of life brings forth stimuli of high velocity of action, magnitude and impact that they stimulate a chain of psycho-physical reactions strong enough to cause manifest effects in the human body. The impact of modern living has a significant bearing on the genesis of stress-associated declines in health. It is important to understand the phenomenon of ‘stress’ and resist its influence to defend our existence.

His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama is a personification of patience and perseverance. He spent over five decades in exile to preserve the Tibetan Identity.
His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama is a personification of patience and perseverance. He spent over five decades in exile to preserve the Tibetan Identity.

A PROUD SYMBOL OF TIBETAN IDENTITY AND THE QUEST FOR FREEDOM

I want to pay my tribute to Tibetan exiles for the display of an undying spirit to preserve their identity and to pass this identity to the future Tibetan generations. I am particularly pained by the actions of South Africa and its refusal to issue a visa to H.H. Dalai Lama to participate in a Peace Conference which is planning to discuss ways of using a popular game like SOCCER to fight racism and xenophobia.
