The Brew of Life
This series of blog entries focus on the relationship of Earth, DNA and Humanity, using the lenses of science. This first part of 3 parts centered on the brewing of life on Earth. The succeeding parts focus on (Part 2) DNA and Intelligence; and (Part 3) Cultural and Epigenetic Landscape.
In February 8, 1969, a giant meteor struck Pueblito de Allende, a small village in Ceballos, in Northern Mexico, bordering Texas and California. The Allende meteor contained 47 percent iron, 25 percent nickel, and 24 percent sulfur, a mixture similar to the white-hot molten core of earth. Moreover, it contained chrondules, tiny spheres of almost pure glass, containing carbon, calcium, sodium, aluminum, potassium, chromium and cobalt, among others.
Scientists at the University of Texas and University of Chicago estimated Allende to be 4.5 billion years old and its origin from a carbon-rich zone of a star, 6-8 times the size of our own sun, being catapulted by a supernova explosion at a time of the formation of our solar system. It’s chrondules contained aluminum 26, believed to be a short-lived species formed during the origin of the universe. Moreover, it contained xenon 129, a by-product of the long extinct radioactivity of iodine 129, created when elements were born. The chrondules also contained numerous amino acids, such as valine, alanine, glycine, proline, aspartic acid and glutamic acid, all prominent in earthly animal and plant proteins. This discovery affirmed that after the Big Bang, countless other suns might have been formed with their corresponding planets, which contained the same star stuff as our own solar system.

Realms of Nature
At the center of the earth is an iron rich metal core with a radius of 2,164 miles, making the iron the most abundant element inside the earth. Next from the core is the barysphere, an outer and inner rock layer or mantle extending 1,745 miles thick from the outer edge of and enclosing the central core of the earth. The lowest levels are deduced to be composed of iron or nickel, by the way the barysphere reacts to earthquake waves.
The Layers of the Atmosphere
Amidst the "brew of life," the conclusion of Gustaf Stromberg: there are strong reasons to believe that, at death, the organizing field, which determined the structure of the brain and nervous system, is not destroyed. Instead, like other living fields, it disappears into its origin in a nonphysical world. (Stromberg, Gustaf, “My Faith,” in The Human Aura, edited by Regush, Nicolas, Berkley, New York, 1974, pp. 218-222)
