the same quality as for simple life forms but their genome requires an improved organizational structure to allow a finer
tuned reaction. And this, again, is ruled by patterns. Human kind is ruled by fixed patternised plots as well, but it is less
obvious for them to recognize this as for a species of simpler animal structures. (Typical is the common expression: “a
foreseeable reaction of somebody …”, because we know precisely this person follows the plot of a fixed pattern in its
response to a given challenge). This means generally the basic structure of (elementary) patterns remains unchanged, but
further developed organisms are enabled to refine their follow up reaction and hide, if recommendable to them, their basic
pattern, for instance, behind a cloud of diplomacy. For example ‘trust’, which is an elementary pattern, remains unchanged
for an animal and it is there or it is not, but it is clearly expressed. A person may not trust somebody, but with its top
layer of refined pattern it is able to pretend to be trusting, but it and takes the opportunity to hit out at an unexpected
moment of advantage and strength. Another person may trust somebody, but it searches suspiciously that there are no
tricks, pretends not to trust, because it knows that pretensions are common, and if everything goes alright, especially in an
emergency it confirms its trust.
This common habit in our culture could be extended with so many other typical examples when elementary patterns are
clashing with refined patterns. No question, this is one main reason for the huge increase of mental and organic stress
followed by illnesses and diseases like they were never before in human history. The cells try to apply for what they are
stand, but this is undermined by pretensions, complacency and parasitic social/cultural constraints. Cells are crippled and
get ill.
Eukaryote cells have the same highly developed structure for all animal organisms and a different one for plants
(photosynthesis) but the genetic code differs between all of them. The quality of cell framework and the genetic code is
a very individual matter and besides the existing intellectual difference between simpler animals and primates (primates
include human beings) the subject of quality is established since prehistoric times.
It is not unusual to state rightly about a developed specific animal, it has a ‘noble character’ and one could state about a
specific person, it has not a noble character at all. This as noble characterized animal will not change its fixed pattern of a
given plot compared to other less noble animals of the same species. The noblesse of character, for instance, is not what
attributes to superiority of human race; it is the application of rational intellectuality.
Patterns are like geological sediments containing fossilized objects. We are recognizing, that noblesse (character) or
cowardice are much older patterns than the mindset expressed by the quality of intellectuality or the expression of
romantic feelings.
The earlier mentioned individuation is one of the very old patterns in these layers of sediments; it is of inorganic origin.
The older a pattern is the stronger it is rooted and influential for life events. It is a subject for itself to analyse the age of
patterns and to add to the study of historic developments.
The quality of patterns varies not only between animals and human beings, it varies also in between members of the same
species. The back bone of western society is the egalitarian conviction that all mankind are the same. This conviction
cannot be held upright. They are by far not the same. It is one of the fundamental errors.
The individual framework of coordinated cells – the genome - reflects the stored and memorized quality.
Parallelism of Time and Space
This subject is difficult because it contradicts our evolutionary accustomed experience about the flow of events. When the
Sun rises - or better – when a specific point of the rotating Earth turns at the Sun again, a day has passed and a new one
begins.
In Cambrian times 600 million years ago the Earth turned up at the Sun every day in a 24 hour rhythm of dark night and
bright day, but when measured against the length of today’s hours, the day had only 20 hours; 2 -3 billions of years earlier
it had only 3 - 5 hours. If our organic cell fore fathers would have used a watch, they could still measure time in 24-hour
terms but the hands of this watch would have moved faster.
The ‘real’ time changes permanently, but we are operating our 24-hour standard time happily as it serves us unchanged
for few 10,000 years very well but this is a short time measure compared to the age of the solar system, for instance.
Time is the measure of movements and rotations between galactic bodies and slower or faster movements are therefore
changing these timed conditions.
It becomes difficult only once we leave our current environment and want to explore previous or future events and are
forced to using time scales as triggering facts of evolutionary causes. The Old Testament of the Bible speaks of high aged
