Re: The continued Evolution of Aikido

Hi Buck,

You may find this interesting, as it ties string theory to evolution (in the sense of an unfolding driven by a selection process):

"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lee Smolin

***

Lee Smolin (born 1955 in New York City) is an American theoretical physicist, a researcher at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and an adjunct professor of physics at the University of Waterloo.

Smolin is best known for devising several different approaches to quantum gravity, in particular loop quantum gravity. He advocates that the two primary approaches to quantum gravity, loop quantum gravity and string theory, can be reconciled ****

Smolin's most famous suggestion may be his theory of fecund universes, also known as cosmological natural selection, which attempts to apply principles of biological evolution to cosmology, suggesting that universes evolve in favor of the production of black holes."

Well, that's ironic -- the evolution of black holes.
