ODD AND HOMELESS ARTICLES PAGE

I SET THIS PAGE UP, FOR ARTICLES I HAVE
WRITTEN, BUT WHICH HAVE NOT YET FOUND A
SEPARATELY PUBLISHED HOME.   

ALL ARE COPYRIGHTED, BUT FEEL FREE TO LINK TO THEM, OR PUBLISH AN
ABSTRACT AS LONG AS I AM CREDITED. IF YOU THINK THEY ARE PUBLISHABLE, LET
US TALK. I HAVE SUBMITTED MOST, BUT HAVE MANY THINGS TO DO.
I OFTEN GET INTERESTING OR STRANGE IDEAS,
AND TRY TO SET THEM DOWN. I HAVE A LOT OF THEM, AND WILL ADD MORE AS I GO.
IF YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST IN THEORETICAL, ODD, ECOLOGICAL, WHAT-IF, ETC,
BIOLOGY, CHECK HERE REGULARLY.
YOU CAN EMAIL ME HERE WITH COMMENTS:

ODD ARTICLES, OR IT WILL GO IN THE
TRASH.

I will add these as I find the time.  

1. LIFE IN SPACE
  Stephen Jay Gould was an aggressive proponent of the concept of pre-adaptation,
leading to evolutionary changes. In this article I have considered how life could evolve to
live, thrive, and disperse in space. I offer descriptive theories of how this can happen, right
here in our solar system.
  (This is tied in somewhat with my other notion to be further described in another article,
that the solar system is awash with life/spores, all of them deriving from the cast-off detritus
of earth. I think this is much more practical concept then the idea of panspermy from
distant starts and galaxies.)

2. THE ULTIMATE PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEM
 What is a person (man/woman/ or any of the other more than a dozen sexes?). I once
had extended discussions with a friend now deceased, as to how we would define a human
to an alien race. What would be prohibited to an alien, what actually is human. This is
going to be covered in a future article, in detail.
  The article here is one I wrote in 2011 but was rejected by publishers. At the time it
appeared to be science fiction, but science moves on. How many biological parents can a
person have? When this was written, an American doctor had tried to cure mitochondrial
disease in about a dozen children, by injecting the unfertilized egg with mitochondria from a
disease-free donor. This project stopped, though I believe some children have been born.
Progress continues, as the British government has now made this process legal. Also of
interest, is the enabling legislation specifically absolved any mitochondrial donor of
parental obligations. And of course very recently Chinese researchers have been
modifying genes in human embryos, for research.
  So my article is, how many parents CAN one child have? 3, 30, 3000?
Is one gene inserted from another person enough to claim parenthood? Read the article;
there is so much going on so fast, that seems like science fiction, such as human/mouse
hybrids, etc etc.
