Episteme Spacecraft Project & Molecular Historicism
In 2010 I wrote a satire piece about the determinisms of religion and science entitled “How to make a spacecraft” where I proposed the fundamentals of the Episteme Spacecraft Project and the three tests. 
The idea is that we could take the life specific data of a living organism and correlate it with its DNA and form a database with as many species as possible and in turn when looking at a new organism (even an alien organism) we could program that database to produce a DNA from other life specific data. The connection point of data from data is symbiosis and the aim is to employ the DNA as a symbiosis based operating system that has ability to convert different types of life specific data to each other.
In this e-book you will also find my philosophical reasoning that I call Molecular Historicism as a basis for and as a result of the Episteme Spacecraft project. Molecular Historicism refers to DNA as the primary element because DNA refers to molecule as future action, as life. I think that every living thing has an individual reality of time and life could be considered the potential of every atom. As such we could talk about a unified field & time of life in the universe pulsing to a universal symbiosis.

Çay Bahçesine Düşerken / Falling to a Tea House Garden

“Falling to a Tea House Garden” is a selection of my poetry in Turkish and English that I have been writing for the last 24 years and it consists of three parts. The first part “Couples/Çiftetelli” are Turkish
and English poems that I associated together due to meaning, period or form. I originally wrote the first poem in this first part in English and then translated it to Turkish. Apart from this one poem, none of the poems have been translated into the other language. Among my muses are cinema, music, song lyrics, novels, the history of science, arts and religion, aphorisms, idioms, proverbs, caricatures, and folklore. In my poems, I dwell on the topics of nature, philosophy, human and the tragic situation. Here, there are things that I do not want to repeat in life and heeds to myself as well as the truths I have found walking the roads that I did and the experiences I gained. When I write I leave little information with regards to date and time but the second and third parts of the book, “Turkish Poems” and “English Poems” are more or less in a chronological order.

Alphan Vardarlı
A poet, a researcher and a self-trained painter born in 1978. Graduated from University of Kent at Canterbury in the UK, from the Department of Politics and International Relations in 1999. Went onto study art and art history in Florence, Italy. Attended Philosophy and Cultural Analysis M.A. program at the University of Amsterdam.
Been writing poetry since 15 years old. In his 20’s he collaborated with philosophy, logic and anthropology students from the University of Amsterdam to publish an online magazine and a zine, where his poetry, drawings, and collages took part. In his 30’s he took to the stage reading his poetry in Spoken Word İstanbul and the poetry events of different literature groups in Çanakkale. Çanakkale Olay Newspaper also printed his poems in the newspaper’s art pages. Been painting since 2000. In 2005 exhibited for the first time at a mixed exhibition at Siemens Art Gallery in İstanbul. First personal painting exhibition was held in the Turkish Culture Ministry Gallery, in Çanakkale in 2016.

“Çay Bahçesine Düşerken” benim 24 yıldır yazdığım Türkçe ve İngilizce şiirlerden bir seçkidir ve üç bölümden oluşmaktadır. “Couples/Çiftetelli” anlam, dönem ya da düzen olarak birbirine yakıştırdığım Türkçe ve İngilizce şiirlerden eşli bir seçkidir. Bu ilk bölümdeki ilk şiir İngilizce yazılmış ve tarafımdan Türkçeye çevrilmiştir. Kitapta bu şiir dışında hiçbir şiir diğer dile çeviri değildir. Sinema, müzik, şarkı sözleri, romanlar, bilim, sanat ve din tarihi, özdeyişler, deyimler, atasözleri, karikatürler ve folklordan ilham alıyorum ve şiirlerde doğa, felsefe, insan ve trajik durum gibi konular işliyorum. Yürüdüğüm yollar ve edindiğim deneyimlerle bulduğum gerçekler kadar, yaşamda tekrar etmek istemediklerim ve kendime uyarılar da var burada. Nadiren tarih attığımdan şiirlerimde dönem bilgisine az rastlanır, ancak kitabın ikinci ve üçüncü bölümleri olan “Türkçe Şiirler” ve “İngilizce Şiirler” aşağı yukarı kronolojik bir sıra izlenilerek dizilmiştir.

#derlerki Masalcılar Buluşması, Mardin Müzesi sergisi için 2 iş.

1)
Derler ki, can ile başlayan benzerlik, simbiyoz halkaları ile bağlanırmış her bir sistemdeki kamp ateşine, ve güneşin soğurduğu ışık altında bizler ne isek, başka bir yıldızın ateşine ısınan başkaları da kamp ateşinden kamp ateşine bir şarkı bir masal kadar uzakmış…

2)
Derler ki, azınlıktan anneannelerinin ellerini öpmeyen diller, etmedikleri hürmet için kravat takıp imzaladıkları ile kirlenirmiş, bir güzelleme, bir şifayı bildiğinden seç denilince, bir amerikan naylon gecelik üstüne ilmik ilmik, sabrın batıya el pençe divan duran kelimeleri işlenirmiş, olduğu gibi “aziz aşk”, “as is love”…

Aslanlı Şehirden Merhaba!

“The Lion and The Monkey”, Alphan Vardarlı, Acrylic on wood board, L’viv, 2017

Durumsalcılar faşizm iki insan arasında başlar der. Kadına layık olmaya çalışan bir erkek, olgunluğu arayan ve yetişkin olmayı isteyen bireydir aslında ve içindeki ve dışındaki iki türlü faşisti ve faşizmin hayaletlerini tespit etmeli ve onları yok etmelidir.

Kalıplaşmış ortaklık söylemleri üzerinden hak iddiaları bir hayaletidir faşizmin ve bu hayalet yarattığı roller ve güç ilişkileri üzerinden kişinin içini boşaltır ve ona aidiyet ile birlikte bireyselliğin sorumluluklarından kurtulmayı satar. Tabi içimiz asla unutmaz ve kendimizi hissetmek isteriz ve hissedemediğimizde kendimizi bulduğumuz durumların uçurumlarından yani rollerin ve iddiaların bizi götürebildiği absürt sonlardan kendimizi aşağı atabilir pekala cinnet geçirebiliriz, sadece hissetmek için kendimize ve etrafımızdakilere zarar verebiliriz. Bütün bunları da uyurgezer bir şoför gibi yapabilir ancak döngüsünden kurtulamayabiliriz.

Ve… trafikte, ki kuantum hareketinde olduğu gibi tüm yük en iyi ve ayık şoförlerin omuzuna düşer, başkalarının hatalarına rağmen ve onlarla beraber var olur iken onlar sizin ustalıklarınızdan edilgen olarak sadece beslenir ve hatta uykularının derinliklerine göre size daha da yaslanabilirler.

Ancak durumlar tarafından bakmak daha acayip ve zordur, çünkü durumun farkında olan hemen herkes bir film sorgulamasındadır ve filmi yaşayan başkaları ise rollerini, rolü, tiyatroyu bilmeden büyü bozmaktadırlar. Trajedi, büyüyü ve korkuyu, yaradılış yerine köken hakkında konuşan felsefeci devlerin sırtlarında ve herkese açık bir sahnede yendi, açıklanabilir dünyanın açıklamasının, prospektüsünün, kütüphanesinin bir hayatta bitirilemez oluşu ve aynı zamanda bu bilginin hala ölümü yenememiş olması, hatta teknoloji adı altında kullandığımız tüm eşyanın hayatımızda yeri olduğu kadar nasıl çalıştıkları, üretildikleri ve geliştirildikleri ile ilgili orta çağı aşan cehaletimiz dahi sürdürülebilir bir dünyadan kopartıldığımız görülemez alanları belirliyor.

Kadın hem kendi hem de çocukları için iki kere bilgedir. Yani hem kendi geleceğini hem de çocuğunun geleceğini düşünmek zorunda, düşünmese bile dünya ona bunu unutmayan beden gibi hatırlatmakta, çeri çöpten ayırmak zorunda, vaatlerdeki yalanları içten içe en iyi o bilmektedir. Vaat diyorum çünkü bu bir erkek egemen dünyadır ve dünyanın sürdürülebilirliğinden çok yaşananın kalitesinin dünyayı yakmaya değip değmeyeceği ile ilgilidir. Kadının batıllaşmasına sebep arayanlar nükleer bombalarla nasıl bir gelecek vadettiklerini düşünmelidirler. Yani erkekteki gelişim, olgunlaşma, yetişkinlik içerideki duygusal dalgalanmanın dışarıdaki durum ile ilişkisini kurduğu zaman ortaya çıkmakta ancak bu ilişkiyi çoğu zaman kendini kaybettikten sonra kurmaktadır.

Ophthalmic Migraine Visions

“HUBERT AIRY first became aware of his affliction in the fall of 1854, when he noticed a small blind spot interfering with his ability to read. “At first it looked just like the spot which you see after having looked at the sun or some bright object,” he later wrote. But the blind spot was growing, its edges taking on a zigzag shape that reminded Airy of the bastions of a fortified medieval town. Only, they were gorgeously colored. And they were moving.

“All the interior of the fortification, so to speak, was boiling and rolling about in a most wonderful manner as if it was some thick liquid all alive,” Airy wrote. What happened next was less wonderful: a splitting headache, what we now call a migraine.”

Earth Biogenome Project

 

What is the Earth Biogenome Project?

Powerful advances in genome sequencing technology, informatics, automation, and artificial intelligence, have propelled humankind to the threshold of a new beginning in understanding, utilizing, and conserving biodiversity. For the first time in history, it is possible to efficiently sequence the genomes of all known species, and to use genomics to help discover the remaining 80 to 90 percent of species that are currently hidden from science.

Superpropulsion of Droplets and Soft Elastic Solids

Drops of water found to spring from oscillating surface faster than the surface moves

(Phys.org)—A team of researchers with the University of Côte d’Azur in France has found that drops ejected by an oscillating surface can at times travel faster than the surface that ejected them. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the team describes experiments they conducted by flinging water from a superhydrophobic surface and what they found.

https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.119.108001

ABSTRACT

We investigate the behavior of droplets and soft elastic objects propelled with a catapult. Experiments show that the ejection velocity depends on both the projectile deformation and the catapult acceleration dynamics. With a subtle matching given by a peculiar value of the projectile/catapult frequency ratio, a 250% kinetic energy gain is obtained as compared to the propulsion of a rigid projectile with the same engine. This superpropulsion has strong potentialities: actuation of droplets, sorting of objects according to their elastic properties, and energy saving for propulsion engines.

Abstract
The detection of thousands of extrasolar planets by the transit method naturally raises the question of whether potential extrasolar observers could detect the transits of the Solar system planets. We present a comprehensive analysis of the regions in the sky from where transit events of the Solar system planets can be detected. We specify how many different Solar system planets can be observed from any given point in the sky, and find the maximum number to be three. We report the probabilities of a randomly positioned external observer to be able to observe single and multiple Solar system planet transits; specifically, we find a probability of 2.518 per cent to be able to observe at least one transiting planet, 0.229 per cent for at least two transiting planets, and 0.027 per cent for three transiting planets. We identify 68 known exoplanets that have a favourable geometric perspective to allow transit detections in the Solar system and we show how the ongoing K2 mission will extend this list. We use occurrence rates of exoplanets to estimate that there are 3.2 ± 1.2 and
6.6+1.3−0.8

temperate Earth-sized planets orbiting GK and M dwarf stars brighter than V = 13 and 16, respectively, that are located in the Earth’s transit zone.

Ethiopian Tabot within London’s Westminster Abbey

An Orthodox priest carries a covered tabot—a sacred object—in a ceremony in Gondar, Ethiopia

The Ethiopian government is calling for the restitution of a sacred object that is sealed inside an altar in London’s Westminster Abbey. The object, known as a tabot, is a tablet that symbolically represents the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Commandments. Every Ethiopian church houses a covered tabot, which is regarded as sacrosanct and must be seen only by the priest.

Westminster Abbey’s tabot was looted at the battle of Maqdala (formerly Magdala) in 1868, when British troops attacked the forces of the Ethiopian emperor Tewodros.

Last month(2018), following publicity surrounding the opening of the abbey’s museum, the Ethiopian ambassador in London reiterated his government’s claim. Hailemichael Aberra Afework told The Art Newspaper: “We are urging all those who hold items looted from Ethiopia to return them. This includes the tabot held at Westminster Abbey.” It would be inappropriate for a tabot to be displayed in a museum, so he believes that it should be returned to a church, with the Ethiopian synod permitted to decide which one.

SANSKRIT SONG from The Mārkaṇḍeya Purāṇa


 

In January 2017, Śri Vāsudevānada Saraswati, speaking about the spiritual significance of mother, referred to Mother Madālasā singing to her children, telling them that they are śudda, buddha and mukta, pure, conscious and free.

The song is part of the Madālasā Upadesa, or teachings of Madālasā. There are 8 verses of beautiful Sanskrit.

GABRIELLA BURNEL
Gabriella Burnel was commissioned to set to music and perform the verses of the Song. The commission was funded by friends and students of the School of Practical Philosophy in Australia. The film is a video-recording of the final audio session in the London studios, generously provided by Gabriella.
