The Archaea ( Archaea were initially classified as bacteria, receiving the name archaebacteria (or Kingdom Monera), but this classification is outdated.[1] Archaeal cells have unique properties separating them from the other two domains of life: Bacteria and Eukaryota. The Archaea are further divided into four recognized phyla. Classification is difficult, because the majority have not been studied in the laboratory and have only been detected by analysis of their nucleic acids in samples from their environment. Classification[edit] New domain[edit] Current classification[edit] The classification of archaea, and of prokaryotes in general, is a rapidly moving and contentious field. A superphylum - TACK - has been proposed that includes the Aigarchaeota, Crenarchaeota, Korarchaeota and Thaumarchaeota.[18] This superphylum may be related to the origin of eukaryotes. Species[edit] The classification of archaea into species is also controversial. Origin and evolution[edit] R.S. Morphology[edit]

10 Strange Things About The Universe Space The universe can be a very strange place. While groundbreaking ideas such as quantum theory, relativity and even the Earth going around the Sun might be commonly accepted now, science still continues to show that the universe contains things you might find it difficult to believe, and even more difficult to get your head around. Theoretically, the lowest temperature that can be achieved is absolute zero, exactly ? One of the properties of a negative-energy vacuum is that light actually travels faster in it than it does in a normal vacuum, something that may one day allow people to travel faster than the speed of light in a kind of negative-energy vacuum bubble. One prediction of Einstein’s theory of general relativity is that when a large object moves, it drags the space-time around it, causing nearby objects to be pulled along as well. Relativity of Simultaneity Since this extra dimension is so small, only tiny objects, such as particles, can move along it. Antimatter Retrocausality

Lyapunov fractal Standard Lyapunov logistic fractal with iteration sequence AB, in the region [2, 4] × [2, 4]. Generalized Lyapunov logistic fractal with iteration sequence AABAB, in the region [2, 4] × [2, 4]. Generalized Lyapunov logistic fractal with iteration sequence BBBBBBAAAAAA, in the growth parameter region (A,B) in [3.4, 4.0] × [2.5, 3.4], known as Zircon Zity. In mathematics, Lyapunov fractals (also known as Markus–Lyapunov fractals) are bifurcational fractals derived from an extension of the logistic map in which the degree of the growth of the population, r, periodically switches between two values A and B. A Lyapunov fractal is constructed by mapping the regions of stability and chaotic behaviour (measured using the Lyapunov exponent ) in the a−b plane for given periodic sequences of a and b. (stability), and blue corresponds to (chaos). Properties[edit] Lyapunov fractals are generally drawn for values of A and B in the interval . Algorithm for generating Lyapunov fractals[edit]

Philosopher's stones | psychedelics | smart shop Philosopher's stones, psilocybe tampanensis, truffles: The psilocybe tampanensis is a special kind of psychedelic mushroom. All the available cultures originate from one specimen, that was cloned in 1977 by mycologist Stephen Pollock, as she has only been found twice in nature. This particular mushroom was found in Tampa, florida, hence the name: Tampanensis. This strain is capable of producing, besides mushrooms, socalled sclerotia they are also known as stones or truffles. Effect of Philosopher's stones, psilocybe tampanensis, truffles: The trip you get from the Philosopher's Stones is very different from other mushrooms. Usage of Philosopher's stones, psilocybe tampanensis, truffles: Eat the Philosopher's Stones, so that the active substance will be absorbed in your body through your mouth. Make tea from the Philosopher's Stones, Boil some water, keep the fire low and leave the truffles in for about 20 minutes. Take truffles on a empty stomach in a quiet natural environment or at home.

The so-called Habitat Machines and Industrial Parkland series by David Trautrimas appropriate everyday housewares – from pots and pans to faucets and fans – in fantastical Steampunk-esque city-scapes. In everything from individual buildings to entire neighborhoods, this approach incorporates technologies with which we are naggingly familiar – even when they are not always easy to recognize when first viewing one these curious artworks. As with Steampunk, the art is in the the remix. As cues to their origins, names are assigned to these projects including: Waffle Iron Heights, Oil Can Residence, Vacuum Tower, Hole Punch Flats, Space Heater Place, Razor Cooperative, Film Projector Factory, The Fishing Complex and The Measurement District. By shifting the scale and editing the details of this ordinary objects, this artist taps into patterns we recognize from our everyday lives.

The Venus Project Epigenetics One example of an epigenetic change in eukaryotic biology is the process of cellular differentiation. During morphogenesis, totipotent stem cells become the various pluripotent cell lines of the embryo, which in turn become fully differentiated cells. In other words, as a single fertilized egg cell – the zygote – continues to divide, the resulting daughter cells change into all the different cell types in an organism, including neurons, muscle cells, epithelium, endothelium of blood vessels, etc., by activating some genes while inhibiting the expression of others.[5] Historical usage of "epigenetics"[edit] The term "epigenetics" has also been used in developmental psychology to describe psychological development as the result of an ongoing, bi-directional interchange between heredity and the environment.[13] Interactivist ideas of development have been discussed in various forms and under various names throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Contemporary usage of "epigenetics"[edit]
