ヒステリックな年寄りが、若者の しょうもない楽しみを奪おうとする姿を見ると、オレは決まって明治44年の「野球害毒論」を連想する。この大々的ネガティブキャンペーンを打ったのは朝日新聞で、4年後、舌の根も乾かぬうちに高校野球の前身大会を主催することになる。あれが教育に悪い、これが青少年にけしからんなんて主張は、大概こんなもんだ。

土人どもがどれほど一方的にタブーを押しつけようとも、魔女狩りを繰り返そうとも、健やかなる少年はエロを目指す。心は自由に空を舞い、生命は道を見つける。それは誰にも止められない。

第一次世界大戦および第二次世界大戦での調査によると、兵士たちに1日程度の休暇を与えて帰郷させると、排卵期ではない、つまり、本来妊娠可能でない状態の女性までが妊娠した。また、アメリカでは、パール・ハーバーから268日経った後、出産ラッシュがあった。このことは、パール・ハーバーのニュースがアメリカに流れた日、セックスした女性が非常に高い確率で妊娠したということである。

夫が戦場に出かける時、妻は夫とのセックスはこれが最後になるのではないかという不安に駆られる。

死の危機が迫ると妊娠率が向上するということは、妊娠率を向上させるには死の危険を作り出せばよいということである。実際、交尾排卵動物の中には、この手法を実践している動物もいる。例えば、ミンクのオスは、メスの首筋を噛み、血をほとばしらせることでメスを興奮させ、排卵させ、妊娠させる。人間の場合でも、強姦や不倫といった、法や道徳を破るセックスの方が、合法的な夫婦どうしの日常的なセックスよりも妊娠率が高い。

人間以外の霊長類も、自然排卵だけでなく、交尾排卵をする。例えば、オランウータンのオスは、発情期でないメスを強姦することがある。だが、人間以外の霊長類は、性フェロモンの機能が健在であるため、自然排卵だけでも確実に繁殖できる。これに対して、人間は、自然排卵だけを頼りにしていると、繁殖が不確実になる。

RADIO-BURST DISCOVERY DEEPENS ASTROPHYSICS MYSTERY:
BRIEF PULSE DETECTED BY ARECIBO TELESCOPE
APPEARS TO COME FROM FAR BEYOND OUR GALAXY

The discovery of a split-second burst of radio waves by scientists using the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico provides important new evidence of mysterious pulses that appear to come from deep in outer space.

The finding by an international team of astronomers, published July 10 in The Astrophysical Journal, marks the first time that a so-called “fast radio burst” has been detected using an instrument other than the Parkes radio telescope in Australia. Scientists using the Parkes Observatory have recorded a handful of such events, but the lack of any similar findings by other facilities had led to speculation that the Australian instrument might have been picking up signals originating from sources on or near Earth.

“Our result is important because it eliminates any doubt that these radio bursts are truly of cosmic origin,” said Victoria Kaspi, an astrophysics professor at McGill University in Montreal and Principal Investigator for the pulsar-survey project that detected this fast radio burst. “The radio waves show every sign of having come from far outside our galaxy — a really exciting prospect.”

Exactly what may be causing such radio bursts represents a major new enigma for astrophysicists. Possibilities include a range of exotic astrophysical objects, such as evaporating black holes, mergers of neutron stars, or flares from magnetars — a type of neutron star with extremely powerful magnetic fields.

“Another possibility is that they are bursts much brighter than the giant pulses seen from some pulsars,” notes James Cordes, a professor of astronomy at Cornell University and co-author of the new study.

The unusual pulse was detected on Nov. 2, 2012, at the Arecibo Observatory, a National Science Foundation-sponsored facility that boasts the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope, with a radio-mirror dish spanning 305 meters and covering about 20 acres.

While fast radio bursts last just a few thousandths of a second and have rarely been detected, the international team of scientists reporting the Arecibo finding confirm previous estimates that these strange cosmic bursts occur roughly 10,000 times a day over the whole sky. This astonishingly large number is inferred by calculating how much sky was observed, and for how long, in order to make the few detections that have so far been reported.

“The brightness and duration of this event, and the inferred rate at which these bursts occur, are all consistent with the properties of the bursts previously detected by the Parkes telescope in Australia,” said Laura Spitler, lead author of the new paper. Dr. Spitler, now a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, was a PhD student at Cornell when the research work began.

The bursts appear to be coming from beyond the Milky Way galaxy based on measurement of an effect known as plasma dispersion. Pulses that travel through the cosmos are distinguished from man-made interference by the effect of interstellar electrons, which cause radio waves to travel more slowly at lower radio frequencies. The burst detected by the Arecibo telescope has three times the maximum dispersion measure that would be expected from a source within the galaxy, the scientists report.

The discovery was made as part of the Pulsar Arecibo L-Band Feed Array (PALFA) survey, which aims to find a large sample of pulsars and to discover rare objects useful for probing fundamental aspects of neutron star physics and testing theories of gravitational physics.

Efforts are now under way to detect radio bursts using radio telescopes that can observe broad swaths of the sky to help identify them. Telescopes under construction in Australia and South Africa as well as the CHIME telescope in Canada have the potential to detect fast radio bursts; astronomers say these and other new facilities could pave the way for many more discoveries and a better understanding of this mysterious cosmic phenomenon.
