Popeye and BIO-RAM

By: Robert Bruce Baird

The chlorophyll receptors of spinach have been used to make part of a computer chip. The report went on to say in three years they will have a complete circuit and self-powered chip. The self-powered aspect when joined with the peptides which self-replicate in Bill Joy's Wired Magazine article will provide some truly interesting possibilities that Joy and Kurzweil (Awarded the 1999 National Award for Technology by Bill Clinton in March 2000, see Wired Magazine, Mar/Apr. 2000, for Bill Joy's article.) are confident will enable our human obsolescence as workers. It seems a little funny that one of my youthful philosophers 'Popeye' (I Yam what I Yam.) liked spinach and it will be part of this amazing aspect of technology.

The Sylons of 'Battlestar Galactica' are soon to be a reality if we don't get our ethics in order. The 'Yam' also convinced leading botanists who felt there was no European contact before the second millennium AD that there was indeed trade and trans-oceanic travel with America. Actually that was the American Sweet Potato which might be only a yam in the vernacular.

Sunday October 26, 2003 sees the Toronto Star running an article about a different Robin Williams who is a scientist in Ottawa. The article is most interesting due to the fact that it shows how secrets run so much of science and the military is all over this one. Quantum encryption using the fact that photons exist simultaneously in two different forms “somewhat like having a version of yourself to go to work and another to run the household errands at the same time." YesFree Reprint Articles, that mysticist Heisenberg is at it again. “Enter quantum cryptography.

Quantum particles like photons should be the ideal vehicle to carry the encryption key over ordinary communication channels – because of the Heisenberg uncertainty Principle." (2)
