The predator-prey relationship and its appearance in stock market trend fluctuations

A method developed by E. Kerner for testing biological population fluctuations for predator-prey behavior is applied to the Dow Jones Average. The result shows that the stock market exhibited predator-prey behavior before and after the crash of 1929. The result shows that for about five years prior to the crash the market behaved as a hot market. This challenges claims by efficient market theorists that the market has always been efficiently priced. More

The expanding universe model fails the test

  The expanding universe model fails the test: Towards a new cosmological paradigm P. A. LaViolette, submitted (2017) Abstract The no-evolution, static universe tired-light model and the no-evolution concordance expanding universe cosmology are compared to observational data on six cosmology tests. The tired-light model is shown to make a superior … More

The episodic influx of tin-rich cosmic dust particles during the last ice age

The episodic influx of tin-rich cosmic dust particles during the last ice age

Advances in Space Research, vol. 56, no. 11 (2015):2402-2427. Abstract This paper presents evidence of the first detection of interstellar dust in ice age polar ice. Neutron activation analysis (NAA) results are reported for 15 elements found in dust filtered from eight samples of Camp Century Greenland ice dating from … More

Autopoietic Gene-Enzyme Cycles and the Emergence of Life

Autopoietic Gene-Enzyme Cycles and the Emergence of Life

Journal Keynote Paper by Paul A. LaViolette. Systems concepts are applied to solve the problem of how early life could have emerged from an initially abiotic organic environment. Proteinoid or lipid microspheres are proposed to have polymerized from a primordial organic soup and to contain various amino acids and several different nucleobases. A self-replicating “basic set” hypercycle consisting of 10 XNA gene strands and 10 enzymes is proposed that utilizes inorganic phosphates as an energy source. More

Are Radio Pulsars Extraterrestrial Communication Beacons?

by Paul A. LaViolette The Starburst Foundation J. Astrobiology & Outreach 4 (2016): 148. Abstract Evidence is presented that radio pulsars may be artificially engineered beacons of extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) origin. It is proposed that they are beaming signals to various Galactic locations including our solar system and that their primary purpose … More
