gamma ray.noun,.plural.gamma rays
very high frequency electromagnetic-radiation, emitted from stars, as a result of radioactive decay. They are like X-rays, but shorter in length. Only lead or collision with an atom can stop them.

Gamma rays come from deep space and emanate from explosions that blast their energy out in all directions. What causes this is a mystery. "We don't know how this is happening" says Tsvi Piri of Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Gamma rays carry positive energy produced by annihilation when an electron and its antiparticle a positron collide. Like neutrinos, they go through us all the time. 

"GRBs (Gamma ray bursts) are brief intense discharges of radiation believed to be the most energetic phenomenon in the Universe...a spinning black hole forms, which both destroys the star (leading to a supernova) and produces jets of particles traveling near the speed of light, which give rise to a gamma ray burst (GRB)."....Astronomy, January, 2000, pages 32.

Gamma rays have no set pattern of rise and fall and disappear quickly from view, most of them occurring for only seconds, not allowing enough time for telescopes to track what is happening. However, some last more than a minute, releasing vast amounts of energy, estimated to be about 1038ergs in their few seconds sometimes about a minute) of life. The Sun, for comparison, emits about the same amount of energy, but over 7 hours. Such massive explosions (beyond the ability to see with visible light without special detection equipment, we would not even know that they are there) regularly occurring "out there" has shocked many scientific disciplines. 

We know that they are not generated by the Sun or any planets. No one is sure exactly where they arise, but it's somewhere beyond a thousand light years away, where matter seems to act so differently.

genome.noun,.plural.genomes
the total genetic-(heredity-factors) compliment (things which agree with each other) of a cell or organism

Genomic DNA is the total of an individual's DNA present in one cell or to put it another way, every cell of every living thing inherently contains a formula for the particular variety of life that it is. That is how the rose 'knows' it's a rose and the daisy, a daisy. 

This formula is the genome, being a complete haploid (single set of chromosomes) with its associated genes or the complete genetic makeup and written (encoded) in DNA's language. 

The total human genome is about 3 billion base pairs (6 billion in double stranded DNA). This is being categorized along with reams of other related information to stab at understanding how it was all put together, so we can, in utter ignorance, manipulate natural life processes, in a futile race (why futile?) to increase knowledge of how to better patch up the body. 

All this necessitated due to widespread (and increasing) ignorance of optimizing the body through providing proper nutrition. 

An escalating amount of money towards 'effect' research such as the cancer 'virus' (if there is such a thing; type 'no such thing as a virus' into Google), the AIDS 'virus', etc., responds to the monstrous need created by this inferior, inferior because it often leads to a dead end, expensive and complicated misknowledge of health. 

This in turn results in foodstuffs most people today in ignorance ingest, continuing detrimental contributions toward their health declination, fueled by their desire for taste over nutrition.

The further we become distanced from natural methods of health maintenance and away from the causes of various illnesses, the greater the presssure to solve compounding problems caused by the inferior alternate.

These writers contributed to the development of a romantic school in modern Arabic poetry that emphasized the role of imagination and emotion and the power of nature..The Prophet.1923, which Jubran wrote in English, is a collection of aphorisms.(concise sayings) and philosophical musings that has proved popular among young adult readers for generations. Other of his books in English are.The Madman, 1918; The Forerunner, 1920; Sand and Foam, 1926; Jesus, the Son of Man, 1928.

One quote of his is here. Another here.

Born into a Christian family in the village of Bsharri in Lebanon, Jubran emigrated to the United States in 1894 and settled initially in Boston.

Two later collections of tales are partially autobiographical,.Spirits Rebellious, 1946 and.The Broken Wings, 1957.
