    ide like to go under 20,000 leages under the sea like the book I read when I was a kid.

    Whilst participating in a meditation retreat, “Awakening
    Wisdom” I had to perform the practice with my eyes open. The translation
    machine stopped working. I was watching what the lady in front of me was doing
    as the Chinese version on the practice was playing on the PA system.

    I started to see light around me. Then I saw just out of
    thin air a flash of light fell and landed on an empty meditation cushion.  To the height of an human being there was a
    shimmering light on the cushion that was one row behind me and one row to the
    right of the meditation cushion I was standing on.

    A lady that attends the meditation center came in a
    little late and stood on this cushion that the light landed on. The light
    deciphered.  Then I saw with my right
    peripheral vision I saw the light reappeared and was surrounding her. When she
    makes a sudden movement the light disappeared and reappeared when she was
    making the movements slowly. She did not see or was aware of the presence of
    the thing that I was seeing. I saw this happen one more times during this
    retreat.

    Great TED talk! She’s brilliant. As a Comp. Sci – I agree we need to look to every environment and the ocean is our best, and fourth most dangerous place to explore. I think all the disciplines need to work together to create better sustainability – altering uses and resources, but without compromising it or forsaking the use of it. I drew Tesla coil run cities when I was a kid in 6th grade and dreamed of cars that ran on water. That day is here!

    P.S. – I’m also a classical scientist, though this is misunderstood and shunned in modern times, I like Newton, Descartes, and Babbage am a devout christian who believe the more we explore, the more we confirm scriptures … “2 Peter 3:8 Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some understand slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.” All that is necessary to understand the Father is paralleled in the universe He made….we just haven’t discovered it all yet.

    Amazing information. Unbelievable. And, great natural speaker, simple presentation with maximum concentration on her words. Very likeable

    Wow. What an amazing, twist and turn of insights, leading to a ponderous self reflection… Bravo!

    Scientists recently calculated that due to the immense pressure under the oceans and ice under the moons of the gas planets, crust cracking can’t happen there. Therefore there wouldn’t be enough energy gradient to support extraterrestrial life there. But with this report, even just a little bit of energy gradient in the mud under the oceans is infact enough to support life, and this could extend to the gas giant moons or even under the liquid water ocean at Mars’ south pole.

    When you play the monkey card you really discredit yourself and the topic. Yet, monkey see, monkey do!

    My take away from this is alien life is incredibly more likely now.. I was always under the impression that life required light, but that’s an assumption I made based on all life on earths surface.

    In before oil is a result of subsurface microbial life cycles and the earth has an infinite supply

    Very cool! Changing understanding of life, yes. Also standing out here is ‘changing perception of time’. A while back, i’d gotten interested in taking a pretty deep look into time and wound up writing a short paper on it, more philosophy than physics, with a key consideration being the nature of our perception of time making things very difficult when it comes to trying to reach any understanding of ‘what is time’. There was one paper another person had written, more from a scientific perspective, a guy by the name of Rovelli, paper was titled “Forget Time” (i see he’s been thinking about this ever since and has recently come out with a book on it). He advocated replacing time with thermodynamic equations (something tells me that would be a hard sell to the general public). Your consideration of the amount of energy consumption/metabolic rate/longevity, with your deep see microbes (oh, temperature/metabolic rate, what’s the temperature at the bottom of the ocean? i’ve heard that methane freezes down there…), would seem to support his argument. Certainly our perception of time is profoundly impacted by thermodynamic factors. We don’t actually measure time but state variations compared to other state variations in time and it is the rate of variation we call ‘time’. As you have noticed, the slower the rate of state variations, the less meaningful any concept of ‘time’ becomes.
    i’ve added your talk to my continuing collection of notes on the subject of ‘time’. Thanks! 🙂

    He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner; to Him belong the best names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth is exalting Him. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

      Same Abrahamic god as the Jews and Christians. Same god as the 7 billion other gods-all are simply projections of the mind.

    Fascinating. These biota are an incredible research opportunity. Their utter intransigence alone could inform our own ideas of life, its processes and perhaps stasis. The latter might provide methodology for suspended animation. And their ubiquity could provide us with models of sustainability. Also, since there is no upper limit on their age, we might find genetic Methuselahs from which we’ll see the progression of genetic evolution.

    Mean while back in the oceans primordial mud the ancient microbes are slowly becoming aware of the fact some of their comrades are missing and they are angry. There is going to be big trouble a million years from now.

    So they took the risk to grow an unknown species on the surface just like that_ Who gave her the right..Crazy professor?

    great talk ty 🙂 mars must have life as well as the bottom of the earths oceans

    lol…no one does faux-enthusiasm quite like an American or someone trained by an American. You can always tell by how mildly concerned you become about their mental health. Somebody should have told her that being smart, realistically passionate and sexy is enough to hold the interest of anyone to whom it would be worth explaining.

    The incredibly slow life processes in the deep sea that lead to incredibly long lifespans is a form of suspended animation or slow motion or cryogenic sleep. 200x more biomass than all humans in single cell organisms, to say nothing of larger ones like the 400-year-lifespam Greenland shark, is an incredible biological adaptation. It’s going to change how we look at energy, perception & time. The cold slow deep operates in high pressure and maybe requires or relies on it. We may have to look ourselves as high energy using fast living beings – but our AIs may be even more so. A hierarchy of speed like the starfish pack hunting mussels. You only have to be a bit faster than your prey.

    Just imagine the scale of the universe and the things we don’t yet know. The fact that the internet was invented in our lifetime. Just imagine all that and compare that to the anxiety we feel in bed about how our second cousin insulted us 10 years ago. We are such wonderfully weird people.

    She’s great. Wish she was my neighbor. How about pressure and temperature? I’m not a TED talk fan but this one peaked my curiosity.

    I love brilliant people who speak well. The nutty professor can be fun to hang with but a trained public speaker will something to say is a party.

    Dr. Lloyd says maybe the one thing she couldn’t give them was time. Perhaps her field of science isn’t considering time is experienced differently the closer to our center of gravity than in space. At our atmosphere it would be “space” for such an organism. They may yearn to explore the core! But to come up to the gaseous portion of our ecosphere is equivalent to their being ripped apart not by pressure but by anti aging.

    Seeing her being so passionate about the topic made me smile, i love watching people talk about what they love!
