7+1=8th Day of Life

Joan Winifred science & spirituality Truth

“Timing” matters in certain matters, huh?

God’s Law stipulated that a male child should be circumcised on the eighth day of life. (Leviticus 12:3) In newborn babies, the blood’s ability to clot is understood to reach normal levels after the first week. In Bible times, before advanced medical treatments were available, waiting for over a week before circumcision was a wise protection. [excerpted: W No. 1 2018]

There are various Biblical examples of harmony between (true/accurate) science & (true/accurate) spirituality (e.g., example-above; Vitamin K & Prothrombin–timing of circumcision)…further reading: is-the-bible-outdated… (from what i’ve studied through the years)…NO! the Bible and the timeless wisdom therein is RELEVANT!:) to life in the here & now…under any circumstances.

Unseen Hawaiian Bobtail Squid

appreciation Breathing-Fragile-Life science & spirituality wisdom

Fascinating creature… creating its own light…🙂

A NOCTURNAL hunter, the Hawaiian bobtail squid creates its own light—not to be seen, but to be unseen—to blend in with the ambient moonlight and starlight. The animal’s secret is its partnership with light-emitting bacteria. That partnership may also hold secrets that could benefit us, but in a seemingly unrelated way. It may benefit our health.

Consider: The Hawaiian bobtail squid lives in the clear coastal waters of the Hawaiian Islands. Light from the moon and the stars would normally make the silhouette of the creature stand out to predators below. The bobtail squid, however, emits a glow from its underside that mimics ambient night light in both intensity and wavelength. The result is stealth—no silhouette, no shadow. The squid’s “high-tech” apparatus is its light organ, which houses bioluminescent bacteria that produce just the right glow to camouflage their host.

The bacteria may also help to regulate the squid’s sleep-wake pattern. This interests researchers because the bobtail squid may not be the only creature where there is a link between bacteria and circadian cycles, or daily rhythms in activity. In mammals, for example, bacteria that play a role in digestion may also be associated with circadian rhythms. Disturbances of these rhythms have been linked to depression, diabetes, obesity, and sleep disorders. Hence, the study of the squid’s bacteria-host system may furnish insights into human health.

What do you think? Did the light organ of the Hawaiian bobtail squid come about by evolution? Or was it designed? [article: AWAKE! 2015 Was It Designed? The Light Organ of the Hawaiian Bobtail Squid]

What quality (aka survival skill) do i admire about this amazing-fragile-life?  (stealth, of course!;))

“Insights into human health”… aka en”light”enments…are found from the Divine Mind aka Creator.

O. M. F. Optimization for Multiple Functioning

appreciation attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life choice conscientious-ness God insights Joan Winifred loyalty science & spirituality stress management

Are You a “seeing skeleton” ?!

(not sure (and no time to research) IF i’ve already shared this here (aka this blog previously))…

Check it out at YOUR OWN RISK…of seeing/(understanding) better…

THE reef-dwelling brittle star has an amazing form of armor on its upper surface. This part of its skeleton is studded with microscopic lenses that turn the animal’s armor into a compound eye.

According to chemist Joanna Aizenberg, the brittle star’s dual-purpose shell “demonstrates an important principle: in biology, materials are often optimized for multiple functions.

[…]researchers have devised a simple, low-cost method of producing arrays of microlenses made of calcium carbonate. The many applications of these arrays include telecommunications, where they are used to conduct light signals through optical fibers. [excerpted past/recent reading/peering…The Seeing Skeleton of the Brittle Star–Was It Designed? (by God) AWAKE! May 2013]

Brittle thinking lacks tensile strength…(and now and again may be ? we all need an antacid;)  perhaps (a) 1 life lesson…we can make the most of things…efficiency and speed…is found in not sweating the small stuff (follow-through on the small stuff, (but don’t let it hinder progress long-term)) and …when we can effectively tackle the microscopic…may be we see/understand the macroscopic…

practical verse:

The person faithful in what is least is faithful also in much, and the person unrighteous in what is least is unrighteous also in much. (Luke 16:10)

Poetic Justice (aka scientifically accurate poetry)

Joan Winifred poetry science & spirituality

Your eyes even saw me as an embryo; all its parts were written in your book.” (Psalm 139:16)

In poetic language, David speaks of an embryo developing according to the directions written in a preexisting “book,” or plan. Amazingly, this was written some 3,000 years ago!

Yet, it was not until the mid-1800’s that Austrian botanist Gregor Mendel discovered the basic principles of genetics. And only in April 2003 did researchers finish sequencing the human genome, which contains all the genetic information needed to build a living human body. Scientists have described the genetic chemical code as being like a dictionary filled with words made up of the letters of an alphabet. The words form the genetic instructions. Based on these instructions, the embryo’s parts—such as the brain, heart, lungs, and limbs—develop in precise sequence and with perfect timing. Fittingly, the genome has been described by scientists as “the book of life.” How was the Bible writer David able to be so accurate? He humbly admitted: “The spirit of Jehovah spoke through me; his word was on my tongue.” *[In the Bible, God is identified by his personal name, Jehovah.]—2 Samuel 23:2. [excerpted reading The Bible–Accurate in All Respects Awake! No. 3 2017]
