A typical knowledge acquisition node showing two layers of abstraction. Note how some of the acquisition field detection moves with the observer’s perspective. You can tell, due to the varying visual aspects of the fields and their conjunctions that it has already been primed and in use.
This node may be one of thousands/millions/billions which form when acquiring the semantics of any particular signal set.
Their purpose is to encode a waveform of meaning.
Basically it is these ‘guys’ which do the work of ‘digesting’ the knowledge contained within any given signal; sort of like what enzymes do in our cells.
The size, colour (although not here represented), orientation, quantity, sequence, and other attributes of the constituent field representations all contribute to a unique representation of those semantics the given node has encountered along its travel through any particular set of signal. The knowledge representation (not seen here) is comprised of the results of what these nodes do.
This node represents a unique cumulative ‘imprint’ or signature derived from the group of knowledge molecules it has processed during its life time in the collation similar to what a checksum does in a more or less primitive fashion for numerical values in IT applications.
I have randomized/obfuscated a bit here (in a few different ways), as usual, so that I can protect my work and release it in a prescribed and measured way over time.
In April I will be entering the 7th year of working on this phase of my work. I didn’t intentionally plan it this way, but the number 7 does seem to be a ‘number of completion’ for me as well.
The shape of the model was not intended in itself. It ‘acquired’ this shape during the course of its work. It could have just as well been of a different type (which I’m going to show here soon).
Important is the ‘complementarity’ of the two shapes as they are capable of encoding differing levels of abstraction. The inner model is more influenced by the observer than the outer one, for example. The outer shape contains a sort of ‘summary’ of what the inner shape has processed.
Another example of the ‘neo-snake-oil salesmen’ peddling you trendy pabulum and neo-Babylon confusion. My current project Mathesis Universalis http://mathesis-universalis.com will bring an end to this menagerie of nonsense and subtle programming.
I could write a book on this.
Don’t believe everything put forward in this… set of perspectives. This is a work in process so stay tuned… updates are coming very shortly.
I’m happy that he allows for more than 5 senses as this is a common error made by science and philosophy up to this time. I’ve taken issue with it elsewhere numerous times. Also I’m pleased that he is allowing for Neuroplasticity (Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz http://www.jeffreymschwartz.com/ has been leading this new model for over 10 years.)
Up to @04:27 I take issue with two important assumptions he makes:
1) That sensory information is the only way we ‘register’ reality.
2) He is a physicalist pure through. If he can’t measure and quantify it, then it doesn’t exist for him… This leads to what is known as causal ambiguity (among other things). http://psychologydictionary.org/causal-ambiguity/
@04:57– He says that memory is stored all over the brain. This is incorrect. The effects of the phenomena of memory are manifested in various areas of the brain. There is no sufficient and necessary proof that memory is stored there! They PRESUME it to be stored there, because they can not allow or imagine anything non-physical being able to store any kind of knowledge.
@05:09– “How many memories can you fit inside your head? What is the storage capacity of the human brain?” he asks.
In addition to the presumption that memories are stored there, he then ignores the capacity of other areas of the body to imprint the effects of memory: the digestive tract, the endocrine and immune ‘systems’,… even to cell membranes (in cases of addiction, for example)!!!
@05:23– “But given the amount of neurons in the human brain involved with memory…” (the first presumption that memories are stored there) “and the number of connections a single neuron can make…” (he’s turning this whole perspective on memory into a numerical problem!) which is reductionism.
@05:27– He then refers to the work of Paul Reber, professor of psychology at Northwestern University who explained his ‘research’ into answering that question. here’s the link. I will break that further stream of presumptions down next. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-is-the-memory-capacity/
(the question is asked about middle of the 1st page of the article which contains 2 pages)
Paul Reber makes a joke and then says: “The human brain consists of about one billion neurons. Each neuron forms about 1,000 connections to other neurons, amounting to more than a trillion connections. If each neuron could only help store a single memory, running out of space would be a problem. You might have only a few gigabytes of storage space, similar to the space in an iPod or a USB flash drive.”
“Yet neurons combine so that each one helps with many memories at a time, exponentially increasing the brain’s memory storage capacity to something closer to around 2.5 petabytes (or a million gigabytes). For comparison, if your brain worked like a digital video recorder in a television, 2.5 petabytes would be enough to hold three million hours of TV shows. You would have to leave the TV running continuously for more than 300 years to use up all that storage.”
These presumptions and observations are full of ambiguity and guesswork. Given that we are not reading a thesis on the subject, we can allow him a little slack, but even the conclusions he has arrived at are nothing substantial. More below as he reveals his lack of knowledge next.
“The brain’s exact storage capacity for memories is difficult to calculate. First, we do not know how to measure the size of a memory. Second, certain memories involve more details and thus take up more space; other memories are forgotten and thus free up space. Additionally, some information is just not worth remembering in the first place.”
He not only doesn’t know to measure memories (which he admits), he cannot even tell you what they are precisely! He offers here also no reason for us to believe that memory is reducible to information!
@05:50– “The world is real… right?” (I almost don’t want to know what’s coming next!)
And then it really gets wild…
@05:59– With his: “How do you know?” question he begins to question the existence of rocket scientists. He moves to Sun centric ideas (we’ve heard this one before) to show how wrong humanity has been in the past.
He seems to ignore or not be aware of the fact that that many pre-science explorers as far back as ancient Alexandria knew better and had documented this idea as being false. This ‘error’ of humanity reveals more about dogma of a church/religion/tradition than of humanity/reality as it truly is.
@06:29– “Do we… or will we ever know true reality?” is for him the next question to ask and then offers us to accept the possibility that we may only know what is approximately true.
@06:37“Discovering more and more useful theories every day, but never actually reaching true objective actual reality.”
This question is based upon so much imprecision, ignorance, and arrogance that it isn’t even useful!
First of all: we cannot know “true objective actual reality” in all of its ‘essence’, because we must form a perspective around that which we observe in order to ‘see’ anything meaningful. As soon as a perspective comes into ‘being’, we lose objectivity. (ignorance, assumption)
He doesn’t define what ‘reality’ for him is. (imprecision)
He doesn’t explain what the difference between ‘true’ and ‘actual’ might be. (imprecision, assumption)
Theories are NOT discovered, rather created (implicit arrogance). They can only be discovered if they were already known/formulated at some time.
Also; theories do not stand on their own; rather, they depend upon continued affirmation by being questioned for as long as they exist. We DO NOT store knowledge in our answers; rather, in our questions.
A Holon’s Topology, Morphology, and Dynamics (2a)
This is the second video of a large series and the very first video in a mini-series about holons. In this series I will be building the vocabulary of holons which in turn will be used in my knowledge representations.
The video following this one will go into greater detail describing what you see here and will be adding more to the vocabulary.

Ontology: Compelling and ‘Rich’
They are only surfaces, but they seem to provide you with depth.
This exquisite video shows how the representation of knowledge is ripe for a revolution. I’ve written about this in depth in other places so I won’t bore you with the details here unless you ask me in the comments below.
Stay tuned! I’m behind in my schedule (work load), but I’m getting very close just the same. I will publish here and elsewhere.
I’m going to use this video (and others like it) to explain why ontologies are not sufficient to represent knowledge.
Soon everyone will acknowledge this fact and claim they’ve been saying it all along! (In spite of the many thousands of papers and books obsessively claiming the opposite!!!) They do not know that how dangerous that claim is going to be. Our future will be equipped with the ability to determine if such claims are true or not. That’s some of the reason I do what I do.
“This map was constructed by sorting roughly 800,000 published papers into 776 different scientific paradigms (shown as pale circular nodes) based on how often the papers were cited together by authors of other papers.”
“Links (curved black lines) were made between the paradigms that shared papers, then treated as rubber bands, holding similar paradigms nearer one another when a physical simulation forced every paradigm to repel every other; thus the layout derives directly from the data.”
“Larger paradigms have more papers; node proximity and darker links indicate how many papers are shared between two paradigms. Flowing labels list common words unique to each paradigm, large labels general areas of scientific inquiry.”
Manuel DeLanda. 2015. Philosophical Chemistry: Genealogy of a Scientific Field. Bloomsbury “There is no such thing as Science. The word ‘Science’ refers to a reified generality that together with others, like Nature and Culture, has been a constant source of false problems: are controversies in Science decided by Nature or Culture?”
“Avoiding badly posed problems requires that we replace Science with a population of individual scientific fields, each with it own concepts, statements, significant problems, taxonomic ad explanatory schemas. There are, of course, interactions between fields, and exchanges of cognitive content between them, but that does not mean that they can be fused into a totality in which everything is inextricably related. There is not even a discernible convergence towards a grand synthesis to give us hope that even if the population of fields is highly heterogeneous today, it will one day converge into a unified field. On the contrary, the historical record shows a population progressively differentiating into many subfields, by specialization or hybridization, yielding an overall divergent movement.”
Artificial Scarcity: Resource-Based ‘Anything’ Making You Feel ‘At Home’ We are the living Earth, but soon we will even get to pay rent on it!
Giammaria Ortes: The Decadent Venetian Kook Who Originated The Myth of “Carrying Capacity”
Eugenics  is en vogue, but very old… and this green skinned watermelon has a red inside! (Mean Green Meme and Communism) The Venus Project, Jacques Fresco, Peter Joseph, Zeitgeist Movement, Carrying Capacity,… all of them based upon fraud. And if you try to make it known to them, they block you (my experiences). I have a question that Fresco doesn’t allow to be posed, not to mention answer:
Did we suffer from a lack of electricity before Tesla (and those before him) came and showed us how to make use of it?
Resource-based ‘anything’ (the idea stems from Giammaria Ortes in the Venetian era and taken up by Malthus ) is a fiction! 
And with the Venus Project, it is at best willful ignorance. They must know better (they have been confronted on this), but will not accept anything that conflicts with their previous dogma (especially when it lies at its very foundation!).
It’s at this juncture that concepts begin to coalesce. Within this ‘Holy of Holies’ concepts are born and form/generate their associated continuums. It’s like watching the blue wisping stars newly born in the constellation of Pleiades. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleiades
This ‘event horizon’ is so crucial to understanding and participating in mind; yet those who should know better simply ignore or overlook it.
Tesla’s statement here rings so true that it simply boggles my mind and confirms that Tesla was ‘tuned into it.’
He clearly exhibited these awarenesses on several occasions. He was able to envision many ideas to their completion before constructing them; and his instinct for somehow ‘knowing’ (flashes of insight) what to do next and where to go with an idea were so profound that it often overwhelmed and incapacitated him. His mind was so fertile that layers of creative impulses were being maintained concurrently.
Next to Socrates there are very few who inspire me. Tesla is one of those few.
Quantum Weirdness To Meaninglessness
Physicists: your days are numbered. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Owen Maroney worries that physicists have spent the better part of a century engaging in fraud.
It’s a mess!
Ever since they invented quantum theory in the early 1900s, explains Maroney, who is himself a physicist at the University of Oxford, UK, they have been talking about how strange it is — how it allows particles and atoms to move in many directions at once, for example, or to spin clockwise and anticlockwise simultaneously. But talk is not proof, says Maroney. “If we tell the public that quantum theory is weird, we better go out and test that’s actually true,” he says. “Otherwise we’re not doing science, we’re just explaining some funny squiggles on a blackboard.”
Sadly, the writer doesn’t grasp the depth and breath of the whole affair: It’s not only physics! The time is coming when every single card in their ‘house of cards’ is going to come down.
They’ve been lying to us everywhere:
… The list goes on and on. I’m one of those who are going to bring the whole charade down… and I’m not alone.
Precursors Of Knowledge
Fractal fields provide a nice framework in which to think about knowledge. They are not all we need for precision, but they are helpful in a generic way. I’ll be posting more on them as the knowledge representations are published, because there are many ‘gaps to fill’ to show how these relate to knowledge.
The time is coming when we will exchange massive amounts of knowledge between us without any corporation standing in between. My life’s work is dedicated to this vision and I’m actually carrying it out right in front of you!
We will not only create and share our books, documents, web sites, search results, and media with each other – we will be sharing their conceptual landscapes.
Crimes Of Our Educators
They are heralded as pioneers and bold educators, but the truth is completely different. Wilhelm Wundt and John Dewey among them, they had the designs of their paymasters (banksters like Rockefeller) in their focus as they planted the seeds of destruction of our education system in the USA and Europe.
My own investigations into the systematic corruption of science since the early 19th Century (with encroachment being documented even earlier) dovetails nicely with this book. It confirms my conclusions and even fills in some of the details. More on these investigations of mine are forthcoming.
Utopian dictators like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and Mao are criminals – genocidal psychopaths who have killed more human beings in the last hundred years than any other ideologues in history. They don’t limit their murder to individuals, but to entire nations.
In the United States another form of Utopians, the “progressives,” have tried to destroy traditional America by strategically dumbing down her people. America’s future is being crippled on purpose in order to fundamentally transform the nation, its values, and its system of government. Laid out a century ago by progressive luminary John Dewey, the fruits of his schemes are plain to see today. Dewey got rid of the traditional intensive phonics method of instruction and imposed a “look-say,” “sight,” or “whole-word” method that forces children to read English as if it were Chinese. The method is widely used in today’s public schools, which is a major reason there are so many failing public schools that cannot teach children the basics. This can only be considered a blatant form of child abuse.
American author and veteran educator Samuel Blumenfeld and journalist Alex Newman have taken on the public education establishment as never before and exposed it for the de facto criminal enterprise it is.
Crimes of the Educators reveals how the architects of America’s public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population, a mission closer to success than ever as the Obama administration works relentlessly to nationalize K-12 schooling with Common Core.
The whole-word method of teaching children to read – introduced by John Dewey and colleagues in the early twentieth century and which permeates Common Core – is a significant cause of dyslexia among students. Public education’s war against religion, the “great American math disaster,” promotion of death education, and the government’s plan to lower standards for all so “no one is left behind” is destroying the logic, reasoning, and overall educational prowess of America’s next generation.
According to the Program for International Student Assessment, which collects test results from 65 countries for its rankings.
In reading, students in 19 other locales scored higher than U.S. students
In science, 22 education systems scored above the U.S.
In mathematics, 29 nations and other jurisdictions outperformed the United States
Journalist Henry Mencken said it best in 1924 when he wrote that the aim of public education is “to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.”
It is time to hold the Department of Education accountable for the crimes of the educators.
Information Visualization Is Not Knowledge Representation
This great video from Lynda.com shows how the processing language/interpreter is great for modeling information.
With such a multitude of interesting ways to model data, we find it hard to resist the temptation to call this knowledge, but it’s not!
All of the wonderful representations here still require us to interpret their meaning!
What if there were a way to present knowledge in which our own understanding is not required to interpret them? What if our understanding of what we have presented to us becomes part of the presentation itself, and in fact, influences what we take from that representation?
We obviously need knowledge representation that can provide their meaning on their own for only they can provide a true understanding of their inherent structure and dynamics.
You see real understanding is the personalization of knowledge into your own mind. If your mind cannot dialog with that knowledge, it’s not really yours and if your mind does all the work, it’s only information.
The Parasites ‘Need’ a Pow Wow The ‘need’ (control/fear fetish) for full-spectrum dominance. We must live out their nightmare so that they can save us. Will they be proud of their ‘work’ in a galactic context when our neighbors see what we’re up to?
We suffer from an awful shortage of humans in the universe, but they tell us there’s too many of us! It’s all an expression of their fear and need to control others. Even where there are no problems, they will create them so that they may mark them, touch them and make them ‘safe’.
Our problem isn’t a lack of resources, it’s the hoarding of them!
More artificial scarcity. Why don’t we try ridding ourselves of just one medium sized weapons system. Then we could feed everyone in the world.
Then we could stop suppressing free energy. When we do that we could harvest water out of the air, use it for fuel and drink the exhaust!
This is simply another attempt to get us to accept the privatization of water! We are the living Earth, but if we continue, we’ll all be renters on our own home!
Did we suffer from a shortage of electricity before Tesla showed us how to make use of it?
The parasitic banksters who fund our science (i.e. how we are taught to frame things) have been harping about overpopulation for over 5 centuries (it started during the time of Machiavelli). If they wanted a solution, we would have had one by now. They don’t want a solution to an artificial problem until they can sell us an artificial solution.
We should learn to see through this crap! They’re framing everything now in terms of scarcity and we lap it up like trendy mainstream pablum!
Here a proven social engineering device ‘conspiracy theory’ is being used to contrast Bayesian logic and fails miserably in discovering truth by doing so.
The example used for ‘conspiracy thinking’ was the ignorance of an elected official during WW2, California Governor Earl Warren https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_Warren
Who interestingly enough, got placed on the Supreme Court by the parasitic class later in his career!
We literally swim in a world of conspiracies (look up LIBOR scandal, for just one example: http://www.liborscandal.org/index.html), yet we are supposed to marginalize each other with ridicule like ‘nut job’ and ‘conspiracy theorist’ to keep us in the ‘safe’ and ‘permissible’ trendy mainstream dominant social memes.
The criminal banksters and their corporations get to hide in plain sight and we police each other for crossing boundaries they have set for us! They can wreak havoc on our planet and blame humanity for their deeds. Note however, that Bayesian Logic can’t even grasp this structure and dynamics.
This shows how a statistical and frequency-oriented approach to looking at our world is no guarantee of even seeing the proverbial ‘elephant in the room’!
Hoarding Can Be Cancer Too
This short video’s symbolism and message is paradigm changing. The video stems from a religious message and also contains a bit of idealism, but has meaning even to agnostics and atheists alike.
The Universe is suffering from a shortage of humans right now. Please do your share to rectify this situation by having many children who do not need to hoard.
The true measure of the value of a society finds expression in how it treats its weakest members: the old, infirm, and children.
Universal Constants, Variations and Identities #16 Creation and discovery compliment each other and are the means in which the Universe fundamentally unfolds and enfolds itself (Creation/Discovery)
We tend not to identify them, because there are so many variations in their harmony. Please do overestimate your thoughts… as you will see they are the beginning of your expression to and of the world.
Both Creation and Discovery will work in unison, if we allow them.
Discovery is to recognize/relate what is in your world.
Creation is to transform/synthesize it too. Each is alone without the other.
#15 Time is a temporally ‘linear’ (directed) form of change that is not limited by dimension. (Change/Time)
Time has been arbitrarily and wrongly assigned to dimension. Change is not restricted to any dimension: therefore time is also not limited to it.
I know it’s trendy to see time as a dimension, but dimension is something completely different. Stay tuned to find out what and why.
Update: There are many reasons why time needs a proper definition. Here are a few of them:
The chemical reactions in the vessel are not really effected by some mysterious thing called time, but by the number of contacts or collisions that take place in the soup of atoms or molecules. That is what the factor ‘T’ really stands for.
1) Eternity may be a somewhat mystical overarching reality outside of the physical universe, but time is not. Nor is time a thing that anybody can do anything to. In other words: it cannot be reified.
2) The universe doesn’t exist in time, but time exists in the universe.
3) The proper definition of time is exactly: the sequence of events in the material universe.
Complex systems are the result of our collective blindness to the simple interconnectedness of our universe.
Why is the emerging view of our universe – no longer a Cosmological and Cosmogonic garden of the good, true and beautiful – now turning into this phantasm of complexity?
Where did we go wrong?
Was it the creation and maintaining of the expectation that we could comprehend and grasp the whole of our Cosmos within one perspective?
Were the applications of the science we created so profit bearing that we began to take more than our fare share?
Was it the tempo at which our scientists – not even slowed down by the ethical and moral considerations which constitute our navigation systems down the roads of evolution – that have brought us to this place much too soon and with so much needless suffering (for animals and humans)?
Are we to continue abandoning our organic (and real) ascendancy for artificial (and synthetic) correlates?
