Black holes, epigenetics and sound bubbles are at the forefront of a scientific revolution. Today, we know that scientific knowledge is a powerful force, but as the old adage goes, “with great power comes greater responsibility.” In this case, power should be employed simplistically to create awareness and a better way forward. The fact is that no cultural system can be sustained without the pillars of trust and integrity, especially so as recent scientific discoveries have started to reveal that everything is truly connected.
Most cultures dream of building an educational system that produces the brightest, most flexible minds, each with the power to solve global problems while maintaining freedoms. But can any nation expect freedom to endure when educational leaders limit the scientific path to a few possible answers and investigation methods? Are we knowingly hindering ourselves to protect the industrial interests of outdated theories?
Conceptual Revolutions in Science holds the viewpoint that our educational system should follow a philosophy that teaches future generations not only what we know is true, but also what is unknown. We believe that clear imagery is only obtained when viewing a wide collection of interests and natural wonders. Inspiring our future generations to develop the proper mindset will propel them to solve our global problems while leaving the door open to new understandings.
Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel
Here are 3 remarkable discoveries featured in the book, Conceptual Revolutions in Science, by Adam B. Dorfman that are pushing the boundaries, redefining old theories, to propel innovations in our global industries.
After more than fifty years of theoretical models, society now has a variety of observations of black holes at various scale levels, from stellar to galactic, and cosmological phenomena. When astronomers first began theorizing about black holes, they were expecting that a super massive black hole (SMBH) would consume everything in its vicinity.
Recently however, a team of researchers at UMass Amherst used long observation times (over 5 weeks), and with an improved spectral resolving power from the Chandra instrument (launched in 1999), reached a new conclusion. 
Based on these new observations, Stephen Hawking redefined the event horizon of the black hole and concluded that information can also be emitted from the black hole – making them more like “grey holes,” where information can go in, and come out. His new conclusion is in direct contradiction to his previous 30-year-old theory that suggested that all the information that fell into a black hole would be forever lost, known as “information loss paradox.”  We view this as a great example of the scientific courage needed to replaced outdated theories. 
In the mid-1970s, geneticists found exceptions and violations to every principle of classical genetics. They discovered a constant discussion between genomes and environment. It was then discovered that environmental information not only determines which genes are read or not, but could even change the genes themselves. Despite this, many educational leaders pursued the science of genetic determinism that subscribed to the viewpoint that observable characteristics are purely a genetic condition. 
After decades of scientific discoveries, a new science called epigenetics has emerged, and it has determined that life experiences, triggering thoughts and interactions with nature, play the most important role in genetic expression. 
Today, the healthcare industry and many of our global industries are poised to undergo significant change as broader considerations and supporting research is conducted on the social and environmental factors on genetic expression. In the very near future, the idea of epigenetics will be the first thing on your mind when you wake up, and will drive your actions throughout the day.
In the book, Conceptual Revolutions in Science, we explore the evidence and provide you with practical insights into the incredible wonders that will unfold from this understanding, everything is connected.
Sound Bubbles: The CymaScope
Whenever we are shown an illustration of sound it is invariably depicted as a wave, but according to John Stuart Reid, acoustic pioneer and inventor of the CymaScope, the term ‘sound wave’ is misleading and conjures up an incorrect model of sound. Reid says, “All sounds audible to humans are spherical or bubble-shaped. When you clap your hands, the sound leaves equally in all directions, which infers spheres of sound, not waves. The term ‘wave’ simply refers to the fact that sound bubbles pulsate in and out in a periodic motion.” 
Using the holographic principles of sound a team, led by John Stuart Reid, has developed the CymaScope, a new breed of scientific instrument that imprints sound onto a sensitive water membrane, akin to a fingerprint on glass. Using a technology known as cymatics the process transcribes the periodic vibrations in sounds to periodic wavelets in water, which are then ‘dusted’ with light to reveal the otherwise invisible pattern, therefore making sound visible.
Making sound visible has applications in almost every branch of science, because sound vibrations underpins all lifeforms, and we believe this instrument provides an evolutionary step forward to building a more connected human existence.
In the book, Conceptual Revolutions in Science, we consider the evidence and explore the new science of sound which we believe will not only produce new vibrant industries but will restore reality in ways no artist can imagine.
