    Hi –

    It does not seem that I can reach the page with the truncated prompt. Maybe an issue locally with me –

      You were correct, 1 setting was wrong. Fixed!

    So nice to see someone else doing biology-type art with Midjourney. I’ve been using it a ton this year for bio-homes, bots, furniture, etc.
    My favorite here is that last set of heart-shaped devices. I didn’t expect it to be your anatomic compiler.
    I’ve wanted to make things like this a reality for years (and want to go back to school for just that). Really can’t wait to see y’all’s upcoming plant (and hopefully fungi and bacteria) experiments!

      Cool. Bacteria stuff coming; here’s some on slime molds:

        Thank you, Dr. Levin and colleagues, for your continued research on this. Have you seen any evidence of this biomechanical sensing affecting the bioelectric field of these single-celled organisms in a measurable way? If so, can we look forward to papers on this in the near future?

        Mechanosensation is based on electromagnetic forces (attraction/repulsion) under the hood [1], [2].

        Why isn’t there an exponential growth in bioelectricity research and applications similar to the development of higher order languages and portable software in CS?

          I won’t pretend to know why exponential growth does or doesn’t occur in specific fields, but there are many technical and conceptual reasons why bioelectricity research is harder than software. Not the least of which is the cost of the platform. Anyone with a home PC can fool around with CS concepts and extend them if they have a good idea. Meaningful work in bioelectrics takes decades of background study, and a lab+people which is overall very expensive. There’s a high bar to entry in this field (actually in most areas of biology, I would say).

    No, we haven’t done bioelectric monitoring of Physarum yet. We will! Stay tuned.

      Awesome! — yet also terrifying for those of us trying to follow the “Bodhisattva vow” as much as possible in our daily lives (although your “Cognitive Light Cones” evaluation methodology does help with the inevitable prioritization that must occur as we do what we need to do in order to survive…)

    Pleasing to the eye, intriuging to the mind.

    I am stunned… There Is much of you inside, a mix of art and science. I love the tarots of regenerations, the Alien embryo…I like everything. It Is a display of what Is going on in your mind. Wow.

    Hey, great images, but show us the prompts!

    As an artist I think I’m one of the few who very much love MidJourney art.
    These are beautiful thank you for sharing

      Thanks. In my own work, this tool has increased, not reduced, collaboration with artists. I do most of my work with the amazing Jeremy Guay of Peregrine Creative who has done a lot of our journal covers and other figures.
