There Is Only Now

parallel-universeNew Theory Suggests That We Live In The Past Of A Parallel Universe

There Is Only Now
Here they confuse the issue… Badly!
More psyence mumbo jumbo to get you confused. If you would have said this before publication, you’d have been called a ‘nut job’ or ‘wacko’. But as you see, dogma does change.

They have time and space all whacked out and call people who have better explanations wacko!

The idea of a parallel universe does have uses. For example when we decide something or imagine how something may be different. We construct them in order to compare outcomes (or other aspects) with each other.

The problem with the article, for me, is that today’s science use them to reduce possibility and novelty to outcomes (or other aspects) that must preexist in some form!

They want everything to be non-personal 3rd. person ‘its’ running around interacting from some set of initial conditions! That’s one of the reasons why these parallel universes need to exist for them.

Otherwise they would have to account for some creative or imaginative process which would require a thinking being and not some 3rd. person ‘it’.

“Hunting” for Life in the Universe… Who Speaks For Earth?

Life as we know it

“Hunting” for Life in the Universe… Who Speaks For Earth?
Let’s be careful exactly WHO speaks for us. People who “want to hunt for other life” do that to their own too. Perhaps we need other ‘stewards’ of our world to make first contact with another planetary/galactic civilization.

Whoever ends up owning the world should know that our neighbors ‘out there’ will be very interested in who we are and our history. Will our ‘representatives’ tell those neighbors the truth or will they lie?

Many of the ‘problems’ we have in the world are as artificial as the solutions being manufactured to solve them. Some of the most well-known ‘problems’ are those like the myth of overpopulation (http://overpopulationisamyth.com/overpopulation-the-making-of-a-myth), world poverty, war, terrorism, financial crisis, peak oil,… and soon: peak water (caused by activities such as fracking and the merchandising of water).

Another artificial problem of recent times is known by many names: global cooling (1970s),… ah…, global warming (late 1980s to 2010),… ah…, climate change (Bilderberg 2010).

The ‘stewards’ of our world have been complaining about our problems (in many cases) for a long time now. The question arises as to why, if they were so important, that they haven’t been solved by now? We would be living in the clouds and traveling to the planets if they had done what we trusted them to do in the first place.

Instead they are busily animating the ‘makers and shakers’ of our world with loads of fake money to prematurely build a global civilization whilst running roughshod over all of our personal and collective sovereignty to get there. Those who execute the plans have no idea that they too will be ‘on the menu’ in a later phase after being of use in the earlier ones!

In order to perform this slight-of-hand, they require global problems (such as those above) to provide the thin lines of plausibility to their ends. All the while they have been telling the rest of us that we spread like a virus (like in the film: Matrix).

They believe the lie that “the ends justify the means” when the truth is, the ends are fashioned by their means. All ends are inextricably tied to the means used to arrive at them. We see the results of their lie when they develop technologies too soon, weaponize them and insert control mechanisms into them.

Everywhere there is artificiality: from AI (artificial intelligence) to artificial poverty (austerity); from artificial understanding (category theory) to artificial philosophy (systems theory, chaos theory,…); from artificial physics (Higg’s Boson, Big Bang,…) to artificial biology (synthetic biology in the video); from artificial finance (bankster bail-outs, inside trading, Libor, derivatives, CAFR,…) to fake money (central banking, money as debt); from artificial catastrophes (overpopulation, terrorism, war, financial collapse) to artificial scarcity (zero-sum resource mindset),… even artificial food (margarine, ‘ice cream’, and other fat-free junk, sweeteners,…), artificial people (robots) and artificial diversity (unchecked and unwanted immigration).

This video dovetails all of the aspects above and directs our attention towards premature globalisation arising out of the artificially created chaos around us. I’d like to know if we really want these kinds of people (who are only a small portion of our population) representing us in a galactic or even universal context?

Will our ‘representatives’ be proud of their ‘stewardship’ of humanity? Will they be able to show how they created constructive solutions to aid even the most needy of their own kind? Or will they need to keep a secret so large, that even our neighbors out there wouldn’t want anything to do with us? Humanity will never be trusted in a galactic or even universal context, if we don’t choose our way carefully now.

Complexity At the Cost of Being Simple

Computational ComplexityComplexity At the Cost of Being Simple
There are grievous problems with complexity ‘science’. Some of those problems are apparent here. I will note a few of them.

Reductionism at @13:00 is completely annoying. Epiphenomenological aspects of the problem are completely missing when you reduce into pure binary! It’s like taking you and your emotional life (with its incipient impact on your immune system) and reducing it down to DNA!

“There are way more problems than there are solutions.” @17:00!Sure! When you peel away the contextual embedding of any problem (via reductionism), then you’ve just committed a sort of lobotomy!

The definition of NP at @23:00 while correct, reveals how misguided this theory is. Not all choices are guesses, and correct answers aren’t always ‘lucky’.

Check out the response one receives from the system (algorithm) at @25:11.Did you notice something’s wrong or what?

@26:51 Does anyone notice who is supplying the criterion for the value of ‘correct’? The algorithm is being falsely attributed with properties it can only be endowed with and not arrive at on its own!

@30:00 The rules to Tetris are known by both (algorithm and human) however, the proof of a truth value cannot be computationally arrived at in NP, yet the proof – via a human being AND the skills necessary to ‘prove’ anything can do it in P! It should be obvious that we are going about the whole thing in the wrong way by now!

@31:00 the P<>NP Problem is described. The problem is meaningless and yet you’ll get a Millenium Prize for solving it! (Even sane and not sane find themselves in the balance! Whoa!) If you continue listening to the justification, you might want to be near a bathroom.

@32:27 Check out how NP is being determined to be ‘more’ than P! “Nobody in their right mind…”, “Obviously insane…”,… so naturally NP must be more than P!
Sounds reasonable? I don’t think so…

@32:37 Watch the disappointment: “…very annoying…” and I wonder why? The question is meaningless! Other phrasings of the P<>NP Problem are nothing special and are completely obvious: “You can’t engineer luck.” (Excuse me, but isn’t that the definition of luck in the first place?) and “Solving problems is harder than checking them.”

@34:17 “What could we possibly say… this is all kind of weired…” I don’t know anymore either and I sure hope you don’t tell me! Are we at the end of the lecture already?

@35:53 Now we are getting to the ‘meat of the potato’. If we just “believe in… have faith in…” P<>NP, then Tetris is within NP-P! Wait a minute? That doesn’t sound like any proof to me… perhaps it’s an axiom? We’ll see. It sure looks like begging the question, but I want to be convinced so I’ll just have to wait.

@36:43 He then moves on to a ‘proof’ that looks more like a set of definitions! NP-hard and NP-complete are correctly defined, but they do not prove anything! Tetris and chess act like a definitions, as well!

@40:33 Now he wants to talk about reductions. Wait, weren’t we talking about them already? Let’s take a look…

Yes, we stand upon giants [Authoritarianism]@46:15(Karp’s 3-Partition) and don’t need to think about it anymore and just reconfirm that all NP-complete is reducible to each other! You find some problem that was defined by a “giant” to be a member of your classification and then show that yours is at least as hard @48:47.

If we happen to find a better solution to a member of NP-complete, then either the whole house of cards falls down or we simply reclassify (by reduction) it to P! Now believe it or believe what you want, okay?

There will be a time when we have to revisit mathematics and do a house cleaning of this ‘cuddle muddle’.

I Really Want To Agree… But I Just Can’t! – Max Tegmark – Cahners Theater

I Really Want To Agree… But I Just Can’t!
I did it again (for a friend) and tolerated another hour of this man’s presentation (see my post following this one where I cover the one I watched on August 31st).
I do NOT report this in a spirit of cruelty or meanness, rather to help others recognize when concepts and causality are being confused. I’m just as shocked as anyone else that this is possible.

Beyond the Higg’s Boson, which is not a convincing ‘discovery’, is his claim that the universe is mathematical at (31:00). “In the sense that it [universe] is a mathematical structure.”

Mathematics is simply a precise language!

Here’s one avenue, but I can give others, that may help understand why mathematics cannot be the universe, rather a means to represent it.

Patterns and shapes can be described mathematically just as they are now being described with my words. When he widens his definition to include them (shapes and patterns, structure,…) they represent literally everything and become part of his definition!

He also assigns humanity as a whole as the designer for technology that our amok running corporations have made (and have led the rest of us who ‘enjoy’ employment with them to build for them). The Cuban Missile Crisis isn’t a problem created by humanity as a whole, rather was created by corporations who work for banksters to further their ends.

Causality is all wrong throughout his presentation. Believe me, I wanted to be enthralled by his wisdom, but I’m left disappointed for many reasons… many for which I’ve made no mention.

A Disservice to Mathematics and Science For Over 100 Years and Counting…


“Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. ” -Nikola Tesla

… and that isn’t the only area of ‘damage’!
I’ve been tracking Characteristica Unversalis, Philosophia Universalis, Mathesis Universalis, Logica Universalis and Scientia Universalis all of my working life (for a time not even knowing what these concepts were!).

These concepts are so vitally important and it is a wonder that they have been all but forgotten in our ‘modern’ and ‘post-modern’ era.

The people who are changing our education, science, mathematics and philosophy are most comfortable in an environment of fear and control. That’s why they teach us to frame ideas in terms like uncertainty, chaos, random, coincidence, normativity …  all of these are artificial creations.

This is going to change! It must!

We need to be aware of the subtle changes being made to our science, mathematics, philosophy and logic over time and then bring them back to their intended purposes!

I believe we all have an edge (sometimes many) – even if it takes time or circumstance to find it.

That’s just one of the reasons why normativity is only of very limited use and its importance should be put back in its place, for just one example. Any group of humanity large enough to be considered a distribution (anything else for that matter) will exhibit shared traits and exceptions to them.

It is part of the structure of the universe that it is so! It is a natural constant

We are called upon to judge wisely what these traits are which we choose to measure, lest we miss those which are just as valid as any other, and yet remain unrecognized!

We haven’t even really begun seriously to investigate these wonderful differences in each of us that make each of us special ( #OI Organic Intelligence). Using the most frequently populated area of any particular group is a ‘measuring rod’ won’t get us there either!
