NANO BUILDING BLOCKS: Polymers, Wires and Composites
“A Collection of Updates in the Big World of Nanotechnology”
In the BIG World of Nanotechnology many individual compounds are used that are known to be hazardous materials and/or toxic substances are now being applied to the innovative and creative architectural design of bio-scaffolding, nano coatings, thin films and 3-D Bio-Printing and regular 3-D printing processes to name a few aspects of their use.
In the May 2015 issue of the Smithsonian, the magazine clearly sates the “Future is Here” as it specifically addresses topics of communicating brain to brain; farm to table organic suburbs; made to order bones and organs and fighting famine and drought with satellites. In each of these processes a form of a nano advanced materials is used as a composite composed of a base polymer (of a known plastic raw materials). It may be used to make a human ear and/or develop a brain cloud network of MEMS or nano-siliconCMOS neural dust sensors, so you may transfer your thoughts to another cloud brained archived brain or into your own after selecting the memory or function you desire.
In any event the use of polymers, wires and their composite materials are the nano building blocks to make a nano tool, which becomes the micro device. The single building blocks as a nanotechnology term or nano advanced material that is composed of toxic individual compounds that are even maded from polymeric plastics such as Styrofoam®, phthalates, vinyl chloride, butadiene rubber and many more that are known human carcinogens are now being used in the following aspects of beauty, cosmetics, medicine and pharmaceutical industries as nano delivery systems are illustrated in their particular use and/or smart function aspect.
A primary concern to human and wildlife is the use of these same materials for a SCADA system(s) as integrated through visWi-Fi, Satellite, Wi-Fi, Radio Frequency and many other forms of energy field transmissions, which have been designed for remote human monitoring, internal biological monitoring and environmental monitoring areas are all real. Billions of dollars are spent each year in military and medical research to refined their capabilities in these areas as documented in the National Nanotechnology Initiative Supplement to the President’s 2015 Budget, National Science and Technology Council, Subcommittee on Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology, March 2014, Washington, DC. This is only the beginning of waking up to the Big Nano World and how it will impact your life for either the good or the bad. So Rip van Winkle it is time to wake up and smell the roses before a nanobot gets you with the venom of a polymer resin. Read the rest of this entry

Series 2: BioEthnoticity & Nanotechnology
CINNABAR and NANOCHEOPS
Cinnabar was “truly one” with Qin Shibuangdi, First Emperor of the Ming-dynasty (ruled 221-210 BCE) and the earliest known imperial patron of alchemy, next to Rudolf the Great of Hapsburg in 1218 AD for Europe. Despite the time periods Confucian disapproval of both the First Emperor and his fondness of alchemy, the ingestion of gold – or, rather, the transformed gold- appears to have remained quite popular throughout the Han dynasty. However, most Han dynasty alchemists worked with cinnabar, sometimes with fatal results. Cinnabar (mercury sulfide) is an ore of mercury that is a deep vermilion in color. When heated, cinnabar produces liquid mercury, and further heating and combination of mercury and sulfur will in turn reproduce cinnabar (a cyclical transformation that particularly intrigued Chinese alchemists). Mercury was further amalgamated with other metals (gold and lead in particular) producing elixirs to be ingested. While cinnabar itself was non-toxic- indeed it still maintains a prominent place in traditional Chinese medicine –
