Really! Nothing Is ‘Real’

Is anything RealAnother 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.

Ontology: Compelling and ‘Rich’

Ontologies are surfaces… even if ‘rich’. (link)

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.

Knowledge Representation Foundations
It’s also stuck in ontological framing, but the approach and results are fascinating.

Source:
http://seedmagazine.com/content/article/scientific_method_relationships_among_scientific_paradigms/

“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.”

Introduction.
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’

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 [1] 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 [2]) is a fiction! [3]

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!).

Nascent Mind, Prescient Knowledge: Instinct And Envisioning

Tesla - Instinct transcends knowledge

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:
1) Uncertainty
2) Chaos
3) Randomness
4) Philosophy
5) Complexity
6) Meaning
7) Scarcity
8) Mathematics

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

Precursors of KnowledgePrecursors 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.

Crimes Of Our Educators

crimeseducatorsbook_frontCrimes 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

Information visualization is not Knowledge Representation

(Lynda.com – Overview of Data Visualization)

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 richest want a PowWowThe 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!

Scarcity Fetish Served Hot and Dry

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!

We are suffering from a shortage of humans in the universe. Do your share by having many children who don’t hoard like banksters.

Rationally Bayesian Doesn’t Help You See The Elephant!

Julia Galef - Think Rationally via Bayes' RuleHere 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’!

The true measure of the value of a society finds expression in how it treats its weakest members: the old, infirm, and children.

#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.MathematicalTime

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.

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’.

And ‘deniers’ are the neo-heretics and infidels!
The Pope appears to usher in a new Dark Age for Humanity by creating an encyclical… not about religion… it’s about science and politics!
Will a new age of Inquisition also ensue?

“He has been called the ‘superman pope’, and it would be hard to deny that Pope Francis has had a good December. Cited by President Barack Obama as a key player in the thawing relations between the US and Cuba, the Argentinian pontiff followed that by lecturing his cardinals on the need to clean up Vatican politics. But can Francis achieve a feat that has so far eluded secular powers and inspire decisive action on climate change?”

“It looks as if he will give it a go. In 2015, the pope will issue a lengthy message on the subject to the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, give an address to the UN general assembly and call a summit of the world’s main religions.”


The Privatization of Knowledge

(Image Copyright (C) 2012 ATA Walerian Wolawski / SublimeStar.com)

Guerilla Open Access Manifesto
Aaron Swartz [1986-2013]:

Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves. The world’s entire scientific and cultural heritage, published over centuries in books and journals, is increasingly being digitized and locked up by a handful of private corporations. Want to read the papers featuring the most famous results of the sciences? You’ll need to send enormous amounts to publishers like Reed Elsevier.

There are those struggling to change this. The Open Access Movement has fought valiantly to ensure that scientists do not sign their copyrights away but instead ensure their work is published on the Internet, under terms that allow anyone to access it. But even under the best scenarios, their work will only apply to things published in the future. Everything up until now will have been lost.

That is too high a price to pay. Forcing academics to pay money to read the work of their colleagues? Scanning entire libraries but only allowing the folks at Google to read them? Providing scientific articles to those at elite universities in the First World, but not to children in the Global South? It’s outrageous and unacceptable.

“I agree,” many say, “but what can we do? The companies hold the copyrights, they make enormous amounts of money by charging for access, and it’s perfectly legal — there’s nothing we can do to stop them.” But there is something we can, something that’s already being done: we can fight back.

Those with access to these resources — students, librarians, scientists — you have been given a privilege. You get to feed at this banquet of knowledge while the rest of the world is locked out. But you need not — indeed, morally, you cannot — keep this privilege for yourselves. You have a duty to share it with the world. And you have: trading passwords with colleagues, filling download requests for friends.

Meanwhile, those who have been locked out are not standing idly by. You have been sneaking through holes and climbing over fences, liberating the information locked up by the publishers and sharing them with your friends.

But all of this action goes on in the dark, hidden underground. It’s called stealing or piracy, as if sharing a wealth of knowledge were the moral equivalent of plundering a ship and murdering its crew. But sharing isn’t immoral — it’s a moral imperative. Only those blinded by greed would refuse to let a friend make a copy.

Large corporations, of course, are blinded by greed. The laws under which they operate require it — their shareholders would revolt at anything less. And the politicians they have bought off back them, passing laws giving them the exclusive power to decide who can make copies.

There is no justice in following unjust laws. It’s time to come into the light and, in the grand tradition of civil disobedience, declare our opposition to this private theft of public culture.

We need to take information, wherever it is stored, make our copies and share them with the world. We need to take stuff that’s out of copyright and add it to the archive. We need to buy secret databases and put them on the Web. We need to download scientific journals and upload them to file sharing networks. We need to fight for Guerilla Open Access.

With enough of us, around the world, we’ll not just send a strong message opposing the privatization of knowledge — we’ll make it a thing of the past. Will you join us?

Aaron Swartz, July 2008, Eremo, Italy

The privatization of our world makes some of us owners and the rest of us renters! They’re doing it with the air we breathe (CO2 Credits) and soon with water! We are the living Earth. We must not allow this to continue!


We Be To Not To Be

Shtick and pitch for fraud

Shtick and pitch for fraud

This is another example of current trendy mainstream being given overly exaggerated results. We are simply getting better at expressing our own problem solving to computers.

Has anyone asked themselves or better, an expert of their choice, how a computer stores, understands and expresses its own purpose for being? or
Where a computer finds its own intention to know anything?

WE are providing these elements… not the computers themselves!

Please try to recognize that you are being given a shtick or pitch to make you believe that we are creating intelligent machines. What we are doing is learning to make better use of them! Bankster funded corporatism running our universities and economies are pulling the wool over our eyes. Wake up! Now!
