If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Connecting to our ongoing discussion in these pages over the likelihood that we will be able to recognize alien life, the multiplicity of possible forms life probably takes, and the difficulties of knowing how to scan for intelligent species, here's some excellent late-summer reading: an article called Could alien life exist in the form of DNA-shaped dust? at...

It would be interesting to ask whether such dust-plasma objects (dasmites? plustets?) could ever (self-) organize into the assemblies required of more complex life.

Very Interesting!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polarized_light

being important for the formation of worlds and its needs?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RNA_world_hypothesis

looks
to be very close to the article hypothesis, but maybe the rings around Saturn are part of a neccessary formation of multiple planets needed to give life a chance to flourish? it could be the "shape" of DNA to come is moulded by a number of factors, even the medium of light has a function in dictating the geometry of structures?

I guess Sir Fred Hoyle was thinking along similar lines of inquiry:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panspermia

Maybe, just maybe the whole solar system's planets have past along via evolution, particular tweaking of attributes to lifes structures?..for instance our racky planet without an atmosphere, may have been beneficial to the formation of certain molocules, then a shower of new molocules may have landed here and instigated a slight change in local thermal quantities at the chemical ground level?

Good post. I find out something new and difficult on personal blogs I stumbleupon each day. It's always helpful to read content from their writers and practice a little something from their internet sites.
