On Lyapunov Beings

Denebian Probes and the introduction of non terrestrial life to Sol-3

"In order to secure a stable population of Homo sapiens sapiens the designer needs to guarantee a slow evolutionary response since in the presence of fluctuations, stability becomes related to long time delay. Once t is fixed to that value, one can be force the evolutionary (phenotypic) rate nu for hominids to take the required value: n = 1/5.000.000 = 2 x 2-7.

Note that the solar system possesses an intrinsic noise source due to chaos and characterized by t = 5.000.000 years"

"Assuming a Denebian probe is able to detect Earth"s vegetation in the Earth integrated spectrum at visible wavelengths, we can imagine that the detection took place somewhere between 5 to 3 My ago. Green vegetation on Sol-3 has a reflectance spectrum showing a sharp increase
around 700 nm, the so-called vegetation red edge (VRE), making it a good biomarker for any deep-space exploring probe in the surroundings of the solar system."

"We know the Sahara was more vegetated than today and that its desertification is the main large-scale change in land cover for the last 6000 years, therefore we assume this made of that region an interesting observational target within the framework of the stellar seeding program, and it also makes of the Nabta Playa the place where we find the most interesting puzzles of human evolution in biological terms."

"Sol-3 observation, terraforming, and seeding is a continuous long-term program, hence it is reasonable to conclude that probes have been visiting the planet at least since the Bangui Event, some 14 Myrs ago. We also know that the propagation of the most ancient SVA type A took place about 13.5 Myrs ago, and the youngest SVA types appeared in the human genome after the chimpanzee divergence, therefore it is obvious that at least 13.5 Myrs ago one - or several - of those probes crashed in or around the Bangui-Gobero transect."

"Current research posits that insertions of members of the older SVA subtypes A-C occurred in genes involved in more primitive characteristics whereas younger SVA D-F1 insertions were present in genes linked to more sophisticated human-specific traits. Inserting SVAs in multiple human genes allows for an efficient response to an environmental stimulus. This means you need to control that stimulus targeting SVA regulatory sequences. Potential positive feedbacks in functional interactions of genes with inserted SVAS would have a larger impact on phenotype compared to if only a single gene within a pathway contained an SVA insertion. A controlled stimulus with a period of 2100 to 2500 years - like the Hallstatt cycle - matches our observations"

"Humans are clearly more susceptible to psychiatric disorders than Neanderthals; however, humans can terraform the planet autonomously,
while Neanderthals cannot. Seeding the planet with humans means you can proceed with next planet in your sequence of exploration and seeding without having to carry out the terraforming yourself. The visiting schedule would then be each 11,000 years, 22,000 years, 44,000 years, and 88,000 years. Star cluster NGC 3603, located at some 22 Klyrs from Sol-3, has the highest concentration of stars in this galaxy, thus it is clearly a place to visit, much as NGC-4590 - 44 Klyrs from Sol-3 - and SagDEC - 88 Klyrs."

"Molecular biological analyses on recovered samples have unveiled a remarkably different biology, which nonetheless shares common ancestry with all life forms on Sol-3. This means that not only does the entire biota in Sol-3 represents a single family tree: the recovered samples do also belong to that same tree."

"Sequence-based simulations of the data we have received from the Denebian probes show they characterize an unknown organism for us which however resembles the sequence for either a bacteria or an Archaean. Why would any advanced civilization send probes to a distant solar system to just send data encoding the sequence of a microbial organism? What's
could possibly be the purpose? Are they telling us they are microbial life forms themselves? I doubt it. The Darwell Hypothesis is clearly a pessimistic hypothesis; in my view they are instructing us to create the organism here on Earth by replicating its DNA sequence. Now, why? To take over the planet? I, for one, believe the reason is they are teaching us how to create a truly soil/atmosphere/oceans remediating bacteria, a life form that could terraform the Earth back to its healthy state. But you see, we need to recreate an unknown organism as per the probes' data, and this is something we simply cannot do unless we perfectly know what we are doing. So there you are, should we do it or shouldn't we?"

"We are not going to reproduce an alien organism here on Earth. Period. We don't know what the damn thing is. What if we recreate that microbe, bacteria, virus, or whatever that thing is, and it then starts replicating without we knowing how to stop it? Do we know what impact will that organism have on our planet? Do we know how it would affect our ecosystems? What if the organism turns to be life threating? We are not going to follow those new agey gurus who state the organism is a wonderful atmosphere remediating life form. Sorry, we are not taking risks here. If those guys wish to make experiments, better for them to do their experiments on, say, Mars, or Europa, or Titan. Not here."

Detecting unintentional signals

from other worlds

"Assuming Sol-3 is a terraformed planet, we can be sure the terraformer civilization left somewhere a beacon, or a system of networked beacons to signal its presence to future generations of terraformers. Radio waves are obviously discarded, and the best candidate seems to be a powerful modulated neutrino short pulse of some sort"

[Image: 8.jpg]

"it should be assumed that an average time of civilisation radio usage must exist. This time interval will be called tcomm. In line with this thinking, it is also quite reasonable to assume that civilisations don't last forever but that they all have certain average life span tciv. Naturally, tcomm can never be larger than tciv"

[Image: 9.jpg]

"Due to limitations of radio communication technologies over interstellar distances and limited sensitivity of our radio receivers, signals emanating from an alien civilisation could only be detected within a certain radius around the alien radio transmitter."

"The probability of detecting signals from alien civilisations is equal to the probability of detecting a signal from at least one alien civilisation. And this probability is our goal. We can detect signals from any number of civilisations, but signals from just one civilisation will also "do the trick" quite nicely."

The post-terrestrial space

Humans as a larval species

"a stupid civilization that was wondering whether they were alone in the Universe, instead of posing the right question: what will we eat tomorrow?"

"Ideas about slavery and freedom are too closely bound to the old idea of man as technical object to be able to relate to the real problem of the relationship between man and machine. Now that he is a technical being no longer, man is forced to learn a new function and to find for himself a position in the technical ensemble that is something other than the position of individual. Before the last stage in the transition to a post-biological civilization, we must ensure that man has resolved the conflict with his memories of himself."

[Image: fl3-6.jpg]

"In the initial stages, any civilization is a resource harvesting technological civilization. Models of the fate of a population which consumes resources for the purpose of running a technological civilization lead to the conclusion that Anthropocene represents a fundamental bottleneck for civilization sustainability, and it may be at least one filter that explains Fermi"s paradox"

"The individual is a stable system of technicalities of elements organized into an ensemble. What is organized is these technicalities; the elements also are organized, but only in so far as they are bearers of these technicalities and not because of anything that has to do with their own materiality."

[Image: fl3-7.jpg]

"In life an organ cannot be detached from a species; in technics an element is detachable from the ensemble that produced it for the very reason that it is fabricated; therein lies the difference between a product and something engendered."

"A historical solidarity exists in technical realities. The fabrication of elements is the intermediary that transmits it. If any technical reality is to have posterity, it is not enough that it be improved in itself; it must also be reincarnated and must participate in a cycle of becoming in accord with a formula of relaxation in levels of reality. The solidarity of technical beings in relation one to the other in the present generally tends to obscure a much more essential solidarity, one which requires a temporal evolutionary dimension but is not identical to biological evolution because it happens along continuous lines and scarcely ever involves successive changes in level."

[Image: fl3-8.jpg]

"However much we like to think of ourselves as something special in world history, in fact industrial societies are subject to the same principles that caused earlier societies to collapse. If civilization collapses again, it will be from failure to take advantage of the current reprieve, a reprieve paradoxically both detrimental and essential to our anticipated future."

"Galactic colonization is based on a simple concept: that of the trophic chain. If we assume that the natural resources available are non-renewable, the disappearance of the trophic structures exploiting the resources is unavoidable, unless new resources can be found. The same is true for those resources which are slow to renew in comparison to the rate of exploitation. And as far as we know, all organic life forms face the bottleneck of food. This means the extraterrestrial life forms we might find will always be a threat, provided they are organic life forms as we ourselves are."

"The Darwell hypothesis states that stable equilibria with nonzero population do not exist. In these cases the population experiences a rapid decline after reaching its peak value. It is noteworthy that collapse can occur even though the population has begun leveling off due to the civilization"s switching from high-impact to low-impact energy modalities. A post-biological scenario seems to be the only way to avoid the collapse."

[Image: fl3-9.jpg]

"Every time the simulation repeats itself the computational cost increases. Those in charge of simulating our Universe know this, and sure they will be forced to shorten the simulation length for each run."

The seeded-Earth hypothesis

On ethically motivated seeding

with the course of time it becomes more probable for an intelligent observer to find himself on a planet where life descends from seeding rather than on a planet where abiogenesis took place.

the universality of certain cellular mechanisms (most notably of the genetic code), strongly suggests that all terrestrial life derives from a small group of identical cells, or even perhaps from a single cell

[Image: 47.jpg]

it is not difficult to produce billions and billions of microbial seeds, and send them using a number of inexpensive probes (e.g., propelled by solar sails) headed into the same star-forming region. With the seeds maximally protected, so all things being equal, the efficacy of seeding is higher compared to panspermia.

Ethically motivated seeding is to secure existing native life-form. Both technical and ethical reasons require to implant a signature into the seeds. The question is whether they will find out that signature or not. If they do, that would mean they have advanced to a point of technological development that proves the first stage of the seeding program has been a success, namely: intelligence has emerged from the seeds. Next step is waiting for them to decode the signature. We will know they have decoded it the very moment they land on DENIED, on the exact site coordinates encoded by the signature. Only then will the second stage of the seeding program be termed a success. As of this point in time, they have discovered DNA sequences, and they are even wondering whether those sequences do carry a message. They are still far from concluding that they need to interpret the code in more than 3 dimensions, but we are optimistic. We estimate by the year 2100 they will have developed the means to fully decode the message, and that by 3000 they will be able to reach the contact point, provided their civilization has not collapsed before.

In order to avoid seeding interfering with indigenous life, we required to only target star-forming regions. And if for some reason the probes targeted an already inhabited planet, or any planet where life was detected, the probes should self-destroy before any accidental seeding takes place. This is a basic requirement for any ethically motivated seeding program. But we also need to discuss whether that's enough. In my view, it is not. We also need to leave those intelligent species that develop from our seeding program with a clue about their descendant origin. It is on our responsibility, as seeders, to make intelligent observers which might evolve from the seeds fully aware of their descendant origin, and the only available “time capsules” for a probe carrying the seeds are the seeds themselves.

[Image: 48.jpg]

The CAFB Exchange protocol specifically demands the signature to be encoded in genomes, to be understandable, and to be unambiguous. Once found, it must be clear for them that it is an artificial signature, and not the result of natural evolution or randomness, and this is so because the potential of an already existing civilization to perform cosmic seeding is not lower than the potential of life to emerge from scratch.

the development of genetic weapons, that is, the weaponization of genomics aimed at developing biological weapons that target specific genetic traits, mainly ethnic polymorphisms, forced us to develop new methods and techniques to analyze massive amounts of genomic data. The finding of the universal genetic footprint, the code that gave us reasons to believe there is an artificiality in the genome, is a side effect. Sharing this data with the scientific community is tantamount to having to give explanations we are not ready to give in connection with our genetic weapons development program.

Human Rearing

Enriched Physical Environments and Civilizations

"It is understood that a richer environment during development of a civilization can lead to improved problem solving. Darwell Hypothesis posits that the Zoo Hypothesis must be modified to include the effects of what is known as 'human rearing by non-humans extraterestrial civilizations', according to which if humans are raised as pets this would translate into a better problem solving performance for them compared to what would happen if there were no such a rearing"

"It is not just a question of environmental protection; the environment shapes our brains and behaviors tremendously, and the more stupid things we do against it, the more underdeveloped we get neurophysiologically"

"The goal of population neuroscience is to understand how the brain is shaped by internal effects such as genes and from external factors such as the social and physical environment. Sadly enough, this science is clearly underdeveloped in Sol-3 and by the time humans start to understand its implications it will be too late."

[Image: 67.jpg]

"environmental factors can affect an organism's gene expression, which will influence neural, psychological, and behavioral development; detrimental environmental factors will cause a retarded behavior until the civilization collapses. The idea of a civilization which destroys its environment, yet it is able to travel to other planets, is simply a chymera"

"There is a growing tendency for humans to ignore the powerful effects that the environment can have on their brains and behavior. The stronger this tendency is, the further they are from achieving the necessary technological skills to explore the Universe."

"Humans are a social species and require social interactions to maintain positive physical and mental health. The no-contact strategy is an optimum one for most of Sol-3 development. However, there is a point in time at which prolonging such a no-contact strategy can produce in humans an unbearable feeling of cosmic loneliness the consequences of which, as we know, are always linked to self-destruction. In this scenario the question arises as to who is responsible for such a destruction. Early contact is as harmful as a late contact."

[Image: 68.jpg]

"There is always a critical balance issue in connection with non cultural contamination of lesser civilizations and the required nurturing and directed development strategy of those civilizations. Contact strategies include strict timing which accounts for the problems involved in contacting other civilizations before those civilizations have gained by themselves the needed awareness about how the environment shapes their development"

On biological seeding and artificially generated Cambrian explosions

Advances in Terraforming

Evolution has produced only a relatively few body plans and most of the about tens of millions of animal species on Earth today belong to just between 28 and 35 phyla.

[Image: 13b.png]

Although the number of species on the Tree of Life has been increasing through time, the number of higher taxa, such as phyla, has been decreasing.

[Image: 13c.png]

Inducing an inertial interchange event (IIE) would require only houndreds, and not million of years, for small planetary bodies such as Rigel-2 and Mizar-7. Minutely controlled, this artificially induced IIE would be enough to create a Cambrian Explosion of life in targeted planets.

Artificial rangeomorphs for terraforming

New designs in artificial basal life-forms

"LAGEOS re-entry is estimated to happen in 8.4 My, some 400 Ky after the first swarm of Genesis probes arrives"

[Image: 27b.jpg]

"the devices are fitted with a motile, external digestion feeding module and move in a sediment-parallel manner. The device can have between 10 and 70 different modules and it grows in an isometric fashion by addition of new modules. Once the device attaches to the seafloor it starts the sequence of biomat generation. In its basic configuration the device appears as a waffer of 2mm in diameter with no axis of symmetry, and shows the general organization of a multinucleate syncytium (fiber cells) sandwiched between an upper and lower cellular epithelium."

[Image: 27c.jpg]

"The synthetic dickinsoniids several nanosensors; the hydrodynamic voltammetry is based on a 400 micrometers-thick layer of glutamate in a 0,78 mM phosphate buffer containing 50 mM of NaCl. It is also fitted with a probe of ferrocene- and single stranded DNA-conjugated nanoparticles whose function is to detect specific microoganims in order to check that the biomat is developing as per specifications."

[Image: 27d.jpg]

"Gene-1248 is the name of an electrochemical biosensor which is deployed as a swarm. Electrochemical biosensors provide an attractive means of analyzing the content of a biological sample due to the direct conversion of a biological event to an electronic signal. Gene-1248 is based on the coupling of two different nanostructured materials (gold nanoparticles and fullerenols)."

[Image: 27e.jpg]

[Image: 27f.jpg]

"Life is both a process and an important geophysical and geochemical phenomenon. If we accept that life is produced by a certain environment, and it changes and alters the environment to adapt itself to it and adapt the environment to itself, we can then assume a redesign from scratch will always converge to the same final solution given the same initial geophysical and geochemical conditions. Life is very easy to create under the proper physical and chemical conditions. What is not so trivial is to force into the cell the ability to distinguish self from nonself, unless an intelligent being acts on those cell from the exterior, which leads us back to the question of where did that intelligent being come from in the first place."

"Our artificial rangeomorphs are devices with the ability to utilize inorganic compounds and convert them into organic matter. They also modify their own nature abiologically developing morphological complexity. They can induce sedimentary structures as a result of their physical interaction with the sedimentary dynamics."

[Image: 27g.jpg]

"The goal of the mission is to fast forward the target planet to a precambrian state. But it also has a second, more ambitious goal: to get Sol-3 STO-8My back to a Cambrian state once the entire biological life has effectively collapsed. The seeding would start somewhere in the Nubian plate. We estimate full recovery of biodiversity around 10 My after present."

Frozen Seas Under a Faint Sun

The Hadean Project

On seeding with unicellular organisms

"The goal of the Hadean mission is not just to fast forward Sol-3 to a precambrian state, but to modify the development of complex life that will evolve on its own due to the substantial levels of O2 that may be expected by the time the probes arrive. We don't aim at a self-evolving biosphere but at a designed biosphere. This is a crucial mission goal."

[Image: h2.jpg]

"Seeding requires to target those planets that already sustain an oxygen bearing atmosphere because it takes of the order of a few Ga for them to do so, if at all. Sol-3 atmosphere was already rich in O2, and that made Sol-3 a perfect candidate for seeding."

"A malfunction in the probe failed to deliver these sub-millimeter animals to their proper habitats. The consequence was the development of highly unefficient life forms, which called for a resetting plan in order to guarantee their extinction. Another possibility is that the target planet were other than Sol-3, like Alpha Mensae-4, and that Sol-3 was just a target of opportunity."

[Image: h3.jpg]

"Only when you have evidence that the resulting biosphere is compatible with higher life forms should you start the second stage of the seeding strategy."

"The simplest design for the seeding process would be the from-orbit delivery via nano-sized reentry capsules, which could be in turn ejected backwards at high velocities, viz decelerated with respect to the orbital motion of the main Genesis probe, by a compact railgun. A minimal heat shield would then be enough to protect the content of the delivery capsules during the subsequent drop to the surface. Key to the success prospects of the Genesis mission is capability of the probe to use a databank of terrestrial genomes for the selection of the right mix of microbes to be synthesized in situ by the on-board gene laboratory."

"No, the probes didn't prove that Sol-3 was an uninhabited world. In fact, they detected biosignatures. This implies that an ethical problem had to be solved before seeding, and it seems the on-board AI took the decision to first wipe out those indigeneous life forms."

The role of technological miracles in mentoring lesser civilizations

"The need to have language may be a pancultural universal problem; and having a language may be a universal solution to this problem. But the specific way in which each culture solves this problem—that is, develops its own language—is different in every culture."

"If we content culture is a shared system of socially transmitted behaviour that describes, defines, and guides people’s ways of life, communicated from one generation to the next, tampering with culture in specific ways would allow to shape global development of a civilization. From miracles to UFO sightings our role has always been to mentor and guide people's ways of life taking due care to avoid disconnecting them from their natural evolutionary path."

[Image: n2.jpg]

"We obviously need to introduce new types of fears in order to lead a lesser civilization's evolutionary history to a greater probability of survival, and to guarantee that same civilization overcomes the self-destruction point. You always learn from horrible accidents."

"Perceptual processes are influenced by culture. Exposed to the same stimulus, a given society may perceive an "angel", while another society may perceive "an alien being", or even "the blessed Virgin Mary". Therefore, default patterns can also be modified temporarily by priming with cultural cues. The problem is: how far can we go with that priming with cultural cues? What impact do our missions really have on a lesser previously uncontacted world? How do we know whether we are simply priming, or rather contaminating?"

[Image: n3.jpg]

"biological imperatives dictate the rules of adaptation and living, hence genetic manipulation is sometimes prescribed as a way to increase survival probability, even after the environment has been modified and manipulated to drive a species development. Changing the environment might be expected to produce at least a temporary change in default patterns of perception, and if that fails, genetic manipulation is the last resort."

"emotion communication and recognition is vital for intelligent interspecies communication. Contacting another intelligent species will fail if emotions cannot be recognized and communicated."

Biomolecular Messaging

Pelagibacter ubique and other DNA-based Data Storage Systems

It is not by chance that the first message has been discovered coded in the genome of these organisms. The most common known organism on Earth is the bacterium Pelagibacter ubique, which subsists on dissolved nutrients in seawater and can grow at significant rates in unenriched seawater.

We've been obviously looking at the wrong places searching for extraterrestrial messages. It happens that the 'You are not alone' message was there, in front of us, encoded in the DNA sequence of the most common bacterium on Earth. The discovery was delayed by the fact we dismissed these organisms as they do not form biofilm or colonies, and therefore they have remained uncultured for a long time.

[Image: o2.jpg]

Using the DNA of the most common organism for data storage is a key strategy in any terraforming strategy. First, it is possible to store huge amount of data in very less size. Second, DNA can hold data for quite a long time if you use the ultraconservative segments of the DNA. Finally, by utilizing this strategy, data is packed and the security to the data is given.

Introgressive hybridisation

Homo sapiens sapiens as a domesticated animal

"The issue boils down to whether a domesticated species like humans should be considered taxonomically identical with its wild ancestor or not."

"Tendency to tameness is distributed in a majority of the hominid lineages, though limited to the species and planets in which human societies had a predisposition for being domesticated (such as a strong dependency on technology and technological means they wouldn't have obtained by themselves)."

"the domestication of humans did not drastically change its morphology"

"The results indicated that the individuals included in the study that represented the Sol-3 lineage showed the most affiliate and even tactile behaviour towards their Giselian caretakers."

"Some of the abducted humans in Lytha-2 showed relatively high level of affiliation towards Giselians and in that sense they could also be pre-adapted for domestication."

"... but in general Sol-3 hominid is indeed not fearful towards us and they are easy to tame."

"To find a definition and characterising criteria for what it means for Sol-3 humans to be classified as domesticated is not straight forward as they show territorially minded behaviour, which extends to a small extension of Sol-3, and though they are ready to die defending that small portion of their planet, even killing other humans along their way, they totally lack a sense of sharing a planet at all"
