Conception

The reproduction of the different species is a precondition to secure continuity of life. All living biological cells - singly living or multicellular - apply cell division as a means for reproducing. This has turned out to be the most successful way of maintaining the species with the smallest risk possible: variations are seldom as cells in the stage of cell division genetically are the same, a process we are calling ‘cloning’. It is also a measure of protection to maintain the own specie and protect it against signs of breaking up.

However, this process indicates also the disadvantage of cell division as it is not possible to repair damaged DNA strands. This makes it possible for intruding parasites to damage the cell, for instance, and they have no way to defend themselves. The ‘Red Queen Theory’ proves this point convincingly.

Sexual Fertilization between two different cells which, by their nature, are hostile to each other invites to produce ingenious variations; but the risk of incompatibility or undesired mutations is much enlarged as well.

Without thinking much about it, we ‘human multicellers’ assume biologically to be different of other cell life, because we apply sexual fertilization instead of cell division. What we are forgetting with such generalizing remarks is that all organic multicellular life is based on cell division and the one single sexual act (eggs, spores and sperm) is only one sexually inspired cell division of two cells. Our 300 trillion of human body cells have been all created through cell division and maintain their presence also through this process. We are not only related to cells – our physical and psychological construction is a rough copy of the build of eukaryote cells.

‘Rough’ in so far as we as a whole multicellular organism don’t dispose of essential abilities like molecular processing and other processes but especially the ability to divide the organism in order to reach a semi-immortality. Instead we are concentrating on trying to form the outside world according to our moral shaped origins – and it is more comfortable as well.

We tried to spare us the hardship of the ethical imperative; biological cells in their development had to go through it and enjoy this advantage of mortality and robustness in climate or geological upheavals. The biological-evolutionary destiny of dinosaurs and human kind will be parallel: Both are individually mortal and cannot survive a change of environment.

In documentation and published information about this subject ‘conception’ by August Weissmann in 1889 we are informed that the advantage of sexual fertilization is mainly an improved and larger genetic variety. This is true and sounds positive and nice, but it is not the whole picture. Elementary patterns of biological cells show periods of hunger, threat of survival through extreme climates and geological changes: this leads to sexual reproduction! Cloned cells are comparatively deep rooted in their traditions, robust and placid as well, in our eyes of course, to an extent and are limited to apply more sophisticated defence and offensive strategies for their own expansion and survival. On the other hand, their re-productivity is reduced of sexually reproducing cells, as half of them are male and not capable of producing descendants; the mortality rate has to follow this pro rata.

With the introduction of sexual fertilization, life became much more aggressive; it led to permanent struggles with others, and any application of romance is wishful thinking. Sexually produced cells are better equipped to secure their sources of food for themselves. They are able to chase competitors away from their own or other species. Already the sexual process itself is an example of rape and cannibalism. Cells cannot avoid brutal fights for sexual priorities and their descendants inherit the ability to apply an unconquerable will power, up to self sacrifice, in order to fight for borders, clan and family.

Sexual fertilization didn’t appear in one day. It is a process of approximately 500 million years, starting during the Proterozoic Eon about 1.5 billion of years ago. Sexuality went also through all stages of mutant evolution with many failures. One primitive development could have been when a cell organism with damaged DNA found a way through other cell organisms to undertake repair jobs for its own DNA, because it couldn’t know what was possibly what wrong with its own DNA strand. This, of course, invites the thought that this could have been a cannibalistic or similarly forced process. It may be the ‘eaten’ DNA from another cell would not have been digested and instead would be implanted by the ‘eater’. This theory appears to be convincing because the accompanying elements are still parts of the modern sexual life of organisms. Modern sexual reproduction is based on Eukaryote cells, but older permutations of prokaryotic trials became known as ‘fusion sex’ and may have started this process altogether.

One of the later developments has been, for instance, the ‘haploid’ method of sexual fertilization. One disadvantage of this rough sexual reproduction is again the Irreparability of damaged DNA strands, because they don’t know about reasons of inbuilt damages affecting the DNA sequences. In this case only one partner produces the base of all chromosomes for the new cell, possibly on an alternating basis. If one looks at the ‘scars’ left through pain and frustration of such an elementary pattern, it is possible to imagine, that this was a battle for life and death and had limited chances of becoming the only popular method of sexual fertilization.

 
Egg and sperm: hundreds of sperm cluster an unfertilized egg. Eventually one will break through the outer coat and begin the fertilization process. Sperm can survive up to 48 hours in the female reproductive tract – and take about 10 hours to navigate their way up. (Picture “From Conception to Birth” by Alexander Tsiaras and Barry Werth)

This picture reminds very much on the fossilized earliest biological cell clusters.

We are able to witness the mixed results of this mutation in the shape of brutal rape and refined psychic terror and it is a traumatic part in our life. At least, to a degree it is not the norm in our society in these days but for the time being it exists still. Either he was a brutal rapist and beats her up or was eaten by her – ‘being eaten’ represents in human relationship psychic terror.

This is still valid for some antic spider species as normal fertilization procedure.

Not just inviting for romantic attachment.

If evolution progresses with any type of improvement this means the older method will not be replaced immediately; instead the new method is running beside the earlier one and gains in further years some influence. It can also be the opposite. Parthenocarpic plants have lost their sexual application of re-productivity again. Further it may well be the case, that organisms have not fully adapted to sexual reproduction but act asexually and sexually, whatever the conditions of the environment are and the stage of its own development – described by George C. Williams. Plants, for instance, have taken on the sexual reproduction process but keep in the same time rooting or propagating as a means of spreading – this is a 100% cloning process!

A possibly recent evolution (during the last 5 - 800 millions of years) pushed the diploid fertilization to be en vogue. This means, both partners give up one half of his 46 chromosomes and both put their remaining 2 x 23 together = 46 total chromosomes for the new still unborn zygote. Repair of of DNA strings is simplified through a homologus recombination, because the different genetic background makes it possible internally to compare and hence to execute repair jobs. If mutation is able to launch such a quite complicated development, it is imaginable how deep the previous frustration must have been and at the same time this ingenious arrangement needs to be respected as an unusual mutative development.

It is possible to trace this ‘diplomatic’ situation in the papers and diagrams of this research. There is on one hand the Haploid method – applied at an earlier stage with the colour bull red and forceful – and sexuality is a forceful demand and then on the other side, the younger method – the diploid method - and the colour becomes sun like yellow, the colour of balancing negotiation. As mentioned, the cell doesn’t realize the colour but the frequency of the electromagnetic waves. It couldn’t be more astonishing that such a detailed record of acceptance of an electromagnetic frequency of waves about one billion years (haploid) and about 800 million years ago (diploid) has been stored genetically whereas other things, which we would like to know, are submerged. This happens by analysing this research data very often. Minor things in our eyes are gaining paramount importance. It is similar with the memory of a child. At the age of two or so it remembers some domineering and outstanding figurations of people or events but lacks the comprehensive overview which we apply as adults.

To come back to the story: this psychological well-presented offer (waving with a bouquet of 23 wonderful flowers and not presenting its phallus swinging sexual force) makes this ambassador to be a liked person and the Ovum can’t resist to open a little door and invite “please, if you like to come in for a tea.” This happened precisely at 23/02/1940 at 22.34 pm. Competing lecherous macho- Haploids which had already arrived earlier and have put the ovum under siege and limping Archaeas had been refused, as well as unfashionable dwarfs, unhygienic pre-cells and other riffraffs from somewhere – this all sensed with the ‘eyes’ of the ovum and is reported as lively after millions of years.

In any case, traditional publications have to find corrections, which are saying that, between millions of competitors, the first arriving sperm penetrates the ovum and enters - it is wrong throughout. It is not a race, by all means. It is not the first sperm that arrives there but the ovum doesn’t accept them as they are not likened to the imagination. This can be the evolutionary level of development, but when these conditions are fulfilled then it is the frequency of electromagnetic waves which makes the difference. It has not changed very much even today!

The structural resemblance to ammonites and distant galaxies are unmistakable.

The festivity had started and the fertilization runs in full harmony between both cells. Everyone put the gift – 23 chromosomes into the basket and the bells are ringing. Thereafter, there is only one point left and this is to decide if the mutual new cell becomes male or female. Will the sperm make it and to put his Y chromosome into the basket or will the Ovum succeed to bring her female X chromosome into play? Everything that had been the most wonderful harmony is over in a flash. In our test case the day is still the 23/02/1940 at 23.12pm.

Again, it comes to highly destructively and fiercely carried battles, all the idealistic dreams appear to be illusions and the applied brutality reminds us of Haploid times. It is like the fiercest civil war, with all tricks and cruelties. Everything is going to be destroyed – with regards to the tiny size –the ovum and sperm are hardly visible - and the scale of events one can in its relative size only compare it to “World War”.

In this specific test case it is the little Sperm which destroyed the complete organism of the Ovum but it looks also battered and shows to be at the end just a flash of life, but is the winner. The result: it is a boy.
This bleak event explains if nevertheless of all precautions regarding ovulation times, all other preconditions of genetical compliancy and medical support it results in pregnancy. Both cells didn’t survive their bloody battle.

The real conception following our reading happens after this battle. In the meantime it is 24/02/1940 at 10.34 am. The bloody confrontation is part of the past and now the day is ruled by joy, harmony and endless optimism. Still today, in our life this occasion is set as an original elementary pattern, indicating the joy to live and to succeed with the beloved ones around us.
Looking from the cell’s psychological point of view, it is fair to state that haploid and diploid methods of sexual fertilization are differing through the fact that in the first case it starts with brutal rape of the ovum or the sperm is being eaten during the fertilization act by the ovum, whereas the diploid method first installs the chromosomes in harmony and then starts the same, either she will be destroyed or she puts him into her broth. This all happens to call the new cell a girl or boy.

Different is as well that the diploid sperm gallantly found his way into the house, and the haploid is not permitted inside and has to come with cannons to open the gates ( which is in some cases still the preferred option of the ovum).

Nothing in the world can convince any of the two cells to give up their identity and looking at it from this angle, cloning is so much more peaceful on the surface.

The unchangeable elementary pattern of aggression and fiercely applied determination to conquer and to destruct remains the particular characteristic drive of sexual reproduction with the painful recognition to be mortal.

In the few hours of separating from the male gonads to the conception we are following the setting of elementary patterns of the motionless pre cell – just like a state between inorganic/organic - which are at the end developed to the most modern version of biological cells – the Eukaryotes and this happens all in a hostile environment of fire, ice and radiation. The age of most elementary patterns reaches back to a time when the Moon had not been in existence and before the Sun created its solar system.

It is possible to witness the evolving characteristics of elementary patterns when life was still bound in a stage of prokaryote development, possibly it reaches back to the existence of Extremophiles, of Pre-Cells, the rudimentary DNA collation being fully unprotected because of missing membranes being motionless fixed to the ground and therefore helplessly exposed to all environmental changes.

A big surprise is the style and courting for the cell partner, the sexual behaviour and the illusions, which we are daily experiencing in our society, the courting shrewdness and the trusting love, are already are in existence many million years ago. Thinking deeper about it, probably there is no reason for any surprise. One should only be surprised if this were not the case because we are a macro-embodiment of Micro cell life. Hence, we should be surprised if this were not the case.

It is impressive that we are able to look so clear into their past. Unfortunately we cannot securely predict the future – our cells don’t give us a hint. Our biological life is built on experience and not on foresight. Perhaps the mathematical law of Entropy and Probability can explain this fact? It has been calculated by the Austrian Ludwig Boltzmann (1877) and has been refined by Max Planck. This mathematical law construes, that everything moves from simplicity to complexity, from a small figure to a large figure, from order to disorder. For this reason we are sensing time as a movement forward – from the past to the future.
