The Bates Conjecture
This all started with experiments on my eyesight. I read about the Bates Method and bought his book. When I saw improvements, I consulted with an eye doctor to track my progress. Bates said that the method seemed to work on everyone. Then I started thinking about the philosophical implications.
The Brain Axiom
From the Bates Conjecture, the Brain Conjecture followed. Simply put: the brain works. It works as advertised. It led to my brain model. In using this model, I started to look at some of the mysteries of the human body.
The Genetic Postulate
If we know that genes change over time, and epigenetics says that the environment and stress play a large role in how these things change. We used this principle to theorize:
I used these axioms to take a new look at some mysteries of science and medicine.
I also developed new theories on mental illnesses including:
The Athletic Conjecture
- Why can’t pitchers hit?
- Why DB’s can’t catch?
- Why couldn’t Shaq make free throws?
- Why are black people more athletic?
- Why do the Chinese always win the same Olympic sports?
- Why are quarterbacks typically white?
I realized, that my theories weren’t much different than Christianity. The idea that we were all created in the image of God was not different from my idea that the brain works, under the right conditions and with the right logic. So with this radically new perspective, I began to look at the Bible differently. Instead of regarding it as true, I began to see it as the Truth. I excitedly dove in to give my perspective on:
- reality, truth, and faith
- psychiatric drugs
- the purpose of life
Functional Evolution Conjecture
If the body changes over time, and it strives for equilibrium, and epigenetic and stress factor in to how it changes over time, we play some role in how we change over time. This is not Darwinism. It’s an attempt to explain why humans change in predictable patterns over time. For instance, rarely is a child born with gray hair only to have it develop color over time. Our ears and noses continue to grow throughout our lives. If this was random, you’d expect to see some peoples ears and noses get smaller, but that’s not what happens. If it is non-random, there is a reason that it happens. And if there is a reason that it happens, what is it?
- We evolve faster
- Evolution or diversification?
- The head as a heat source
- Size Matters the evolutionary case for a larger nose
- Eye Whites, the big human advantage
