Superultramodern Ethical / Aesthetical Relativism (SEAR)

Author: Kedar Joshi

According to Superultramodern Ethical/Aesthetical Relativism (SEAR) nothing is absolutely good or bad (or beautiful or ugly), but, as Shakespeare said, thinking makes it so. The novelty in SEAR is its foundations. A thinks C (say an idea) is good while B thinks C is bad. Now it seems that there can be no logical or conceptual criteria to determine if A, for example, is right or wrong. The law of syllogism ( if p implies q and q implies r then p implies r ), for example, is logically true in the sense that one ( at least I ) has to think ( apart from the principle of universal doubt ) that it is true and if someone thinks it to be false then it is his/her inability to see the truth in the law of syllogism or, more importantly, to understand what the law of syllogism states or the concepts it involves. So the principles like the law of syllogism are supposed to be eternal as they cannot be otherwise. They have to be the way they are forever, regardless of individual minds. However, this does not apply to ethical judgments, as one can reasonably think otherwise. The concepts good and bad allow far more flexibility, and if one, for example, thinks that it is good to hurt others for one's own pleasure, this thinking involves no conceptual contradiction, as that is the way that person defines the concept of goodness. And how can there be any logical/conceptual/reasonable restriction on how one defines goodness or badness ? In case of the law of syllogism once we are clear about the terms p, q, r, and implication, the truth cannot logically/conceptually/ reasonably be denied. Ethical concepts are thus vague concepts. Concepts like implication, on the other hand, are concrete or clear. ( It is a different thing that if we mean to call dog, for example, as implication then it is a mere attaching of the label 'implication' to the concept of dog as 'dog' is also nothing but a label attached to some concept. )

In this particular world majority of people more or less agree on ethical definitions because their minds are constructed that way ( i.e. Programs are created to generate appropriate states of consciousness.) In the NSTP ( Non - Spatial Thinking Process ) theoretical terms if the non - spatial universal program is changed people would disagree or think different way/s.

SEAR is a component of Superultramodern Science (SS).

RGM ( Resolution of Great Mysteries )

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

The most challenging problems ( caused by great mysterious phenomena ) in modern / ultramodern science that could be solved with Superultramodern Science (SS), mainly using the NSTP ( Non - Spatial Thinking Process ) theory. It is important to note that solution to a problem does not mean that it's supposed to be the absolute solution or something 100 % certain. Nothing, according to the principle of universal doubt, is believed to be absolutely ( i.e. 100 % ) certain.

Part I

The problems whose underlying (mysterious) phenomena are multiple aspects of a singular structure, leading to the NSTP theory. The NSTP theory is the unique theoretical representation of that structure, and thus solves the problems.

1. The Problem of Wave - Particle Duality

2. The Problem of Electron Jump

3. The Problem of Wheeler's Delayed - Choice Double - Slit Experiment

4.The EPR ( Einstein - Podolsky - Rosen ) Paradox or The Problem of Non - Locality or Instant Communication

5. The Spin Paradox

6.The Polarization Puzzle

7. The Problem of Mass - Gap in Yang - Mills Theory

8.The Problem of Particles with Spin ½

9. The Problem of the Nature of Dark Matter

10. The Solar Neutrino Problem

11. The Problem of the Source of Gamma - Ray Bursts

12. The Problem of Cell Development and Differentiation

13. The Problem of Newly Minted Protein Folding

14. The Problem of Action at a Distance

15. The Problem of Relativity of Mass

16. The Problem of Relativity of Time or The Problem of Absolute Speed of Light

17. The Problem of Conceptual Harmony between Mind and Body

18. Zeno's Paradoxes

19.The Problem of the Mechanism behind the Phenomena of Telepathy, Premonitions, and the Sense of Being Stared At

20. The Problem of the Mechanism behind Astrological Phenomena

Part II

The Problems which are Solved Using the NSTP Theory -

1. The Problem of the Fundamental Nature of (Material) Reality

2. The Problem of the Existence and Nature of God / Deity

3. The Schrodinger's Cat Paradox

4. The Mind - Body Problem or The Problem of Physical Basis for Consciousness

5.Are there Multiple Universes ?

6. Is Ours the Best of All Possible Worlds ?

7. What Happened Before the Big Bang ?

8. What is the Nature of Space and Time ?

9. Is Time Travel Possible ? or How to Build a Time Machine ?

10. Is Life a Dream ?

11. What is Life About ?

12. The Problem of the Nature and Origin of Mass

13. What is the Nature / Physics of I / Self ?

14. The Problem of Unification of Basic Forces

15. The Cosmological Constant Problem

Part III

The Problems Solved Without Using the NSTP Theory

1. What is Meaning?

2. What is Truth ?

3. What is Knowledge ?

4. What is a Thought ?

5. What is Intelligence ?

6. Can a Thinking Being Ever Reasonably Free Itself from Doubt ?

7. Do Computers Think ?

8. The Riemann Hypothesis

9. The Poincare Conjecture

10. How Synthetic A Priori Knowledge Possible ?

11.The Problem of Existence of Universals

12. What is the Relation between Science, Logic, Mathematics, and Philosophy ?

13. Does Free - Will Exist ?

14. What is Good ?

15. What is Beauty ?

The Most Challenging (Unsolved) Problems in Superultramodern Science (SS)

1. What are Superhuman Thoughts ? ( How to Understand Them ? )

2. How to Modulate the Central NSTPs ? In particular, how to change the values of the parameters in the central NSTPs ?

3. What is the Divine Design (both eternal and non - eternal) ?

4. The Problem of Creation of the Non - Eternal Universe

5. Is Human Reason Flawed ?

6. Is Reason Itself Flawed ?

7. How to Verify or Falsify the NSTP ( Non - Spatial Thinking Process ) Theory ?

I reckon that solutions to these problems are beyond human intellect. If one solves these problems it has to be regarded as Superhuman, the state of being distinctively higher to human.

Superultramodern Science (SS)

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

Superultramodern Science (SS) - It's a new paradigm; superultramodern paradigm; a paradigm change. Modern/ultramodern scientists are inventing more and more complex theories (e.g. string theories) within the same paradigm (space existing really/physically out there). However their (modern/ultramodern) paradigm itself is incapable of solving big questions (like the nature and physics of mind, mystery of quantum non-locality, Zeno's paradoxes, etc.). So a new framework; a new (and, by itself, conceptually necessary) way of looking at the world; Superultramodern Science (SS). SS is constituted of 12 theoretical components which are stated and briefly summarised below.

1. Superultramodern Scientism (SSism ) - Attempts to justify the definition of science as a systematic body of knowledge and thus to show that some kind of philosophy could, in fact, be science.

2. Superultramodern Epistemology [ Theory of Knowledge ] ( SE ) - Constituted of 6 sub-components namely : a. The principle of universal doubt b. I, as a subject, being at the centre of investigation c. I feel therefore I am. d. The FR (Flawed Reason) theory e. Superultramodern unification f. Superultramodern philosophical methodology 3. The NSTP ( Non - Spatial Thinking Process ) Theory : Non - Spatial Universal Mechanics (NSUM) - The theory that the material universe is exclusively a group of thinking process/es existing in the form of non-spatial feelings.

4. RGM ( Resolution of Great Mysteries ) : Superultramodern Unification (SU) - Proposes a unique solution to great many challenging problems in science/philosophy using the unificatory NSTP theory.

5. ROS ( Rehabilitation of Occult Sciences ) : Astrology, Numerology, Telepathy, Mysticism (ANTM) - Provides (scientific) explanations for astrological, numerological, telepathic, and mystic phenomena.

6. The FMUP ( Flawed Modern / Ultramodern Physics ) Theory : Superultramodern Physics (SP) - Points out flaws in modern/ultramodern physics and states superultramodern physics free of those flaws.

7. Superultramodern Religion ( SR ) - Brings out a critique on Christianity; presents new definitions of God/god; and shows how religious experiences could be explained.

8. Conmathematics ( Conceptual Mathematics ) : Superultramodern Mathematics (SM) - States and explains the Joshian conjecture of three - dimensional space : that space has three and only three spatial dimensions. Conmathematics is constituted of 4 sub-components namely : a. Conmathematical definition of mathematics b. Philosophy as mathematics c. Conceptual reconstruction of pure mathematics d. Conmathematical foundations of pure mathematics Also, presents solutions to the following : a. Russell's paradox b. Three of the seven millennium problems in mathematics

9. The FR ( Flawed Reason ) Theory - The theory that reason itself might be flawed. That is, at some point reason probably breaks down.

10. Superultramodern Engineering ( SEng ) - Application of the NSTP theory. Modulating the spatial illusion or consciousness with meditation.

11. Superultramodern Ethical / Aesthetical Relativism ( SEAR ) - Argues that ethical and aesthetical concepts are relative and thus they cannot be defined in absolute terms.

12. Superultramodern Problems ( SPro ) - States the (unsolved) problems which are byproduct of superultramodern science.

The FMUP ( Flawed Modern / Ultramodern Physics ) Theory : Superultramodern Physics (SP)

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

The FMUP theory states that modern ( and ultramodern, as extremely modern ) physics is flawed, not absolutely but quite considerably. Following is a list (not necessarily exclusive) of those flaws with brief descriptions. [ The flaws are then resolved with the NSTP ( i.e. non - spatial mechanical ) framework, forming Superultramodern Physics. ]

1. Space - Time Entanglement - Space and time are neither entangled in (strict)physical nor a logical sene. Time varies with space because production of appropriate states of consciousness. Time, like space is a mere experience or illusion, so to say. If the instructions for production in the non - spatial universal software are varied time would no longer be entangled with space.

2. Ontology / Physics of Space - Time Curvature, String Theory, Etc. - Space - time curvature does not exist as a physical / real entity out there but is rather an idea in the universal NSTP (or, in computer terminology, universal non - spatial software). According to the string theories the strings are supposed to be infinitely thin, which is logically impossible. So the strings also exist, if at all, as ideas like space - time curvature.

3. Relativity of Mass - The absolute speed of time does not imply that mass is relative. Mass has to be defined as a bulk / substance or quantity of matter. For example, in electron acceleration experiment, the mass of electron remains constant. However, its increasing resistance to acceleration (as its speed is increased) is controlled by the hidden non - spatial universal program. As a corollary, mass is not transformed into energy but rather illusion / feelings are created as representation of energy. Mass, as a bulk, remains constant.

4. Time Machine and Relativity of Time - Time, being a form of illusion or experience, is inherently relative. That is, it does not need relativity theory or the speed of light constant or absolute principle to prove that time is relative. Thus, to get into past is to reproduce the (non - spatial) states of consciousness as existed in the past (rather as we at present feel they existed in the past). And to build a time machine is to be able to actually reproduce them through varying the non - spatial universal software.

5. Newton's Laws of Motion - Newton's laws of motion and his principle of universal gravitation is not logically necessary. They (that is the phenomena) could be changed by changing the non - spatial universal program.

6. Laws of Thermodynamics - The same story as Newton's laws of motion.

7. Mechanism of Basic Forces - Please consult my article 'The Superultramodern Scientific Explanation of the Fundamental Forces'.

8. Uncertainty Principle - The position and momentum of a particle could be measured with absolute certainty. The present limitations on measurement are technical and not theoretical. This is because particle and wave are two separate entities. If particle could be traced without disturbing it there would be no involvement of the wave feature. The behaviour of the particle is actually moderated by the logic of wave encrypted in the non - spatial universal program. However, when particle is replaced by wave ( i.e. particle disappears from the picture, as space is a form of illusion, and its reappearance is determined by the logic of wave ) the position of particle is determined with absolute randomness or apparent randomness ( if hidden variables are present ).

9. Schrodinger's Cat Paradox - According to the point no. 8, there is no superimposition of quantum states. Particle never exists at both places simultaneously and thus the situation does not involve any logical/conceptual paradoxes. Thus cat does not have to be both dead and alive or neither dead nor alive simultaneously. It is rather either dead or alive. And at any rate cat's world of experience ( assuming it is conscious ) is physically different from that of the observer's. So cat could be actually dead but found alive by the observer as death to cat means annihilation of all of its states of consciousness while its being alive to the observer means it's being seen to be active spatially.

10. Einstein's Equivalence Principle ( Acceleration and Gravity are Equivalent ) - This principle is a mere mathematical convenience, where the term mathematics is taken to mean in a very narrow or limited sense. Actually acceleration and gravity are different in the sense that gravity is one of the forms of acceleration.

Cellphones are the devil's work

Author: Khalil A. Cassimally

Well, if I called the wrong number, why did you answer the phone? – Cartoon caption by James Thurber.

But I say, "I will not pick up my cellphone even if you called the right number. Message/Text me."

Let's put this straight: cellphones are a threat to both your privacy and your grey matter – in the literal way.

You go to a party and find a really beautiful girl. You know that you have to talk to her. And that's exactly what you do. You grab two glasses of champagne and head towards her. "Euhem," you manage to utter. She turns to look at you. She smiles and you hand her the champagne. Then out of nowhere, your cellphone vibrates in your pocket. "Oh shit!" you say. She glares at you and asks, "sorry?"

Damn the cellphone. What's more, it was only mum calling to check whether you are all right.

Anywhere you go somebody can call you. Little by little, you've become an answering machine. And you don't even have a moment for yourself because the cellphone always rings/vibrates when you least need it to. Because cellphones actually do obey Murphy's Law!

But then you might say that you don't even have a private life anymore, so why bother. Well you have to know that cellphones may damage people in other ways.

Only a small amount of energy is emitted by a cellphone. However even this amount will cause stress responses in your cells and affect your reflexes.

Cellphone radiation can even cause molecular changes in your cells. An experiment was performed by a Finish team to prove this. 4500 genes in human cells, cultured in laboratory, were exposed to cellphone radiation for only 48 hours. More than 20 genes were found to have had their activity rate interrupted. Now in your brain alone are billions of genes. Even if a small group of cells will be perturbed, the group isn't really small at all. It still contains several millions of genes. Are you prepared to lose these genes and consequently the cells then?

Cellphone radiation has yet another effect on your grey matter. It increases blood-vessel permeability in the brain. This permits molecules normally excluded from the brain to seep in. This same thing happens in rats' brains. It is now thought that this bleach in the blood-brain barrier may be accompanied by the death of brain cells. If however you like the fact that all types of I-don't-know-what molecules are pouring into your 'defeated' brain, then only may you continue to use your cellphones regularly. But don't blame me; blame yourself.

And yes; you're right! A rat's brain is not like a man's one. In fact the energy absorbed by the rat is really low compared to what a person gets when using a cellphone! And what if the effects add up over time? Maybe your head will literally explode.

Neuroscientist, W. Ross Adey of Loma Linda University says, "You have to ask, 'How much can people handle before it becomes a significant problem?'"

Cellphones may come in handy when you're in need. But remember that many of your cells are dying every time you pick up the cellphone. Hang up!

ROS ( Rehabilitation of Occult Sciences ) : Astrology, Numerology, Telepathy

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

ROS ( Rehabilitation of Occult Sciences ) is a component of Superultramodern Science (SS). Through the NSTP (Non - Spatial Thinking Process) theory and other components of SS, like Superultramodern Scientism (SSism), sciences ( which, at present, are not generally regarded as sciences ) like astrology, numerology, telepathy could be rehabilitated (or scientifically supported). Current (i.e. modern/ultramodern) science is incapable of explaining the mechanism behind the natural workings entailed by these sciences; For example, how stars govern human condition. Through the NSTP theoretical perspective the universe is an ordered non - spatial program, and stars and planets (in case of astrology) stand out or designed as indicators (rather than cause or source) whose appropriate scientific interpretation could predict the future upto certain extent. The inventor of ROS ( Dr Kedar Joshi, i.e. myself) has, through systematic experience, come to believe in (Vedic) astrology and numerology. (Though not sure about telepathy.) Understanding of the NSTP theory is sufficient for the understanding of how these occult sciences could be supported by the NSTP theory.

Superultramodern Scientism (SSism)

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

Superultramodern Scientism (SSism) is Scientism of Superultramodern Science (SS). Without SSism, SS would be seen as a philosophy instead of science. SSism agrees with the definition of Science as a systematic body of knowledge. More systematic a body of knowledge is the more scientific it is.

SSism is essentially based on its critique of logical positivism as well as falsificationism and the principle of universal doubt. :

1. Critique of logical positivism -

Logical positivism is a doctrine that if some theory ( that is supposed to be speaking about the nature of physical /material reality ) is not verifiable then it is meaningless or absurd. SSism states that the meaning of a theory has nothing to do with its verifiabitlity but rather the nature of concepts it involves. ( This is axiomatic. )

2. Critique of logical falsificationism -

Logical falsificationism is a doctrine that if some theory ( that is supposed to be speaking about the nature of physical / material reality ) is not falsifiable then it is unscientific. Thus it is instead metaphysical, if at all meaningful. SSism states that falsifiability of a theory has nothing to do with its being scientific. (This is axiomatic.)

3. The principle of universal doubt -

It is the principle that 'anything may be possible' for what is believed to be 100 % certain at the moment may be because of the limited intellectual capacities of the believer. This suggests that no part / kind of science (including pure mathematics) is to be seen as absolutely certain. Thus the idea of science reduces to the idea of systematic body of knowledge where each group or proposition has its own probability attached to it.

The word philosophy, as it is distinguished from science, is misleading, as it means what philosophy contains is impossible to be a systematic body of knowledge and what science contains is certain or proved.

Pasteur

Author: Terry Dashner

918-451-0270, Terry Dashner

I think you will benefit from this story told by author Robert Hastings. Dr. Hastings is a native of Illinois and has written many books with stories which are as good as, or better than, this one. Enjoy.

Although Robert Koch proved to the world that diseases are transmitted by microbes or germs invisible to the human eye, it was the French chemist Louis Pasteur who discovered how to use weakened microbes to inoculate against all kinds of infectious diseases.

His first successes were with anthrax and chicken cholera. Next he turned to a search for the deadly virus of hydrophobia. But before he could develop a serum of weakened hydrophobia microbes, he must first find and isolate the killer virus.

To do this, it was necessary for Pasteur to experiment with dogs that were mad with rabies. In the lab he would stick his beard within inches of their fangs so as to suck froth into glass tubes. Using these specimens, obtained at such risk of life, he hunted the microbe of hydrophobia.

And succeed he did. But the serum had to be proven. The first subject was a nine-year-old boy by the name of Joseph Meister from Alsace. His mother came crying to Pasteur's laboratory, leading her pitiful, whimpering, scared child, hardly able to walk from the fourteen gashes inflicted by a mad dog. 'Save my little boy,' she begged. It was the night of July 6, 1885, when Joseph became the first recipient of the weakened microbes of hydrophobia in human history. After fourteen inoculations, the boy went home to Alsace and had never a sign of the dreadful disease.

When there were a dozen other serious diseases whose microbes had not yet been found, why did Pasteur risk his life to experiment with the deadly hydrophobia?

The answer may be from his childhood. 'I have always been haunted,' he said, 'by the cries of the victims of a mad wolf that came down the street of our town when I was a little boy.'

Interesting. Sometimes fear paralyzes us into useless inaction. But there are other times when fear can goad us into worthwhile action. Pasteur channeled his fear from childhood into a positive force that saved lives. Fear can be all consuming and destructive, but wise is the person who will conquer fear by directing it in a constructive way. Foolish is the person who allows his fear to immobilize him. Channel fear forward. Don't internalize it. It can motivate you or stifle you. It's always your choice.

The FR ( Flawed Reason ) Theory

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

FR ( Flawed Reason ) theory is a theory that reason itself is ultimately flawed. That is, at some point Reason breaks down. It is not just a matter of human reason but Reason itself.

FR theory, at least at this stage, does not say that it is certain ( 100 % or 99.99...% taking the principle of 'anything may be possible into account ) that Reason is flawed. Rather it is supposed to be probable ( considering the secretive and awesome character of the universe / reality and the trust in human abilities that something is seriously unlikely if possible at all ).

FR theory is inferred from the problem of creation ( of the ephemeral / non - eternal / in usual terms, material universe ) and the possibility that what seems to be the eternal or logically necessary aspect of the universe was also thoughtfully / orderly created ( for example, the order and disorder amongst prime numbers could be a matter of creation ).

FR theory thus states that (some) logical / conceptual paradox/es do ( probably ) exist and are unresolvable. For example, in case of the problem of creation, the problem is meaningful but its solution is even logically / theoretically impossible ( which is an incomprehensible state of affair ). In other words, there can be no understanding of the deepest aspect/s of the universe, to any sort of mind.

The why behind `1+1=2

Author: Khalil A. Cassimally

What does 1+1 equal to? Too easy of a question, you might think. Well yes the answer is 2. There were not any traps whatsoever. But why is it that 1+1 equals to 2? What's the logic behind? This is an amazingly complex question actually.

At first I was asking this question to literally everybody I met, just for fun. But then I realised that the why behind 1+1=2 may not be that simple; it was in other words of no joking matter.

People always say truth comes from a child. That was my chance to consequently test this saying. I asked my kid brother aged 6 why he thought 1+1 gave 2. Here is his answer: "If you take a sweet from the market and put it with the one sweet in your pocket, with how many sweets will you end up? TWO!"

Well he is half correct. He preferred to do an analogy with sweets instead of dealing with the figures. In this particular case, it may have been a better idea. However there was something missing in this answer. I came to find out that it would be missing in my answer as well.

To get a really clear and concise answer however, I decided to email some persons who work with mathematics everyday. I mean astronomers. Although I only received one reply – which came from Dr. Brad Carter of the University of Southern Queensland, thanks to thee – I knew that the answer that I was provided with matched (and even overlapped – see below) my original idea upon this complex question of why 1 and 1 makes 2.

My original thoughts were roughly as stated below: "Somebody wanted to give the number '1' the name 'one.' He also wanted to give the number '2' the name 'two'. So two '1's, which is equivalent to 1+1, will gives two."

As my brother, I'm only half correct and we both made the same mistake. We had not mention that two is defined as two ones. If we had done so, we would have consequently come to the answer of why 1+1 equals to 2! Confused? Well Dr. Carter's answer might be of some help. This exactly what he said: "The answer is simple: it is simply a matter of definition. '2' is the name we give to result of the process '1+1'"

The why to the complex question suddenly became crystal clear. But I wasn't finished with the question as yet. I decided to use one of the search engine Google, latest innovation to get a bit more info about the why behind 1+1=2. I therefore connected to Google Answers! Google Answers is a sort of forum where individuals ask questions and tag an amount of money on the former. A specialist then answers your question and pockets the money. The best part of it though is if a question had already been asked and answered, anybody could view both the question and answer free of charge.

I entered '1+1=2' is the search form and lucky me… somebody else had already asked why 1+1=2 and a mathematician had indeed given an answer.

I was satisfied and thought that that question was now filed. After having joked about it, questioned my kid brother, emailed astronomers and googled it, I think I now finally have a rather good and simple answer to the why behind 1+1=2.

"In number base systems higher than '2', 1+1=2 because it is defined as such. Based on the definitions of the number '2,' the number '4' and the mathematical operation of addition, the answer is always the same."

Such a simple question, which is at the base of so many complex equations, isn't that simple after all, is it? There is actually an entire book, Principia Mathematica by Whitehead and Russell (not the one by Sir Isaac Newton) which devotes several hundred pages to deriving and explanation of just why 1+1=2.

Human Cultural Evolution(?)

Author: Robert Bruce Baird

Human Cultural Evolution:

If we think about it at this juncture, clearly there is little to commend this Judaeo/ Christian/Islamic God if he is represented by the people who led this church. Pagans have a far better history and stand foursquare and 'head and shoulders' above this God of this often re-written Bible. The separation of man from his soul; man from his equal (woman); man from Nature and man from most all that is good; is all I see! Maybe Melchizedek or some other Biblical character (like the Mormon secret society is named after) will be raised up and made a new savior. Maybe it will be John the Baptist (the Johannites and Benjaminites) or it might even be one of the censored people of the Bible like Jasher who will be re-cycled and make it appear they've changed. Whatever it is, I don't want the same structure and would like to see people DOING what Jesus did. Thinking for themselves and communing with his soul 'within' to touch the beauty in all nature!

We can't expect people to read such a totally different picture of history and not challenge our ideas. We are including the best scholars we can and yet there will be many who are so threatened they will say all kinds of bad things about us. We know that there are risks and that the 'powers that be' will not help make this 'stuff' become common knowledge. The Hermetic 'cults' of Egypt and Greece that were so popular when people were allowed to follow knowledge (more) in the early Hellenistic times were from Isis and Osiris. They were the founders of Egypt who were not Gods. Like Moses and Jesus who the rabbis tell us became the object of hero worship so it has often been with great people once they are dead. Priests take the peoples' good opinion of their heroes and turn them into 'cults' with themselves as the key interpreters.

Readers who study hard and have an open mind will find a veritable mine field of 'stuff' to try to sift through in order to find any essence of truth. I see some great truth might exist as I contemplate the naturally growing nanotubes and lattices or helixes that all energy manifests through. The whole universe vibrates according to an intelligent design such as mathematically demonstrated by Dembski. There is no reason to have made Darwin out to be a pure evolutionist. His Theory of Love is just as important. Although he was forced to differentiate himself from Lamarck he was in fact inspired by him. Few enough are the scientists who see there are divergent forces at work in all truthful outcomes. The quality of energy is as important as the quantity of energy, in whatever forces impact mutation. It is not unreasonable to say there is a collective force with purpose in some Divinely Providential construct. It is folly however, to think a mere human might fully comprehend it. That kind of ideology smacks of religious claptrap, I know. Nonetheless I propose there is merit in Dembski and all open-minded evaluations of what might be. We are often seeing the science or present fad therein proclaims an absolute proof that is subsequently proven false. I like the atomic physicists who were called atom-mysticists at first. Neils Bohr was one of them and he observed something like the following: "A great truth has an opposite, which is also true. A trivial truth has an opposite which is only a falsehood."

We have endured the 'experts' of mechanistic professionalism far too long. Their ego has made them cling to fads and fictions with the most ignorant among us. When Edison's phonograph was presented to the Paris Academy of Sciences they throttled the presenter as they claimed he was a ventriloquist. At the end of the 19th Century a Patent Office Official said they should close down because everything that could be discovered had been already patented. This is the kind of sunshine law that all bureaucracies should install but not because they are right about no more inventions being possible. Even worse is the early 20th Century Britannica proclaiming torture was a thing of the past in 'civilized' Europe? Clearly we must do our own thinking.

"Although Darwin was in the habit of repudiating violently any intimation that he had profited from Lamarck, we have already seen that he was acquainted at an early age with English versions of the latter's work and in 1845 there is a reference in an unpublished letter to Lyell (Biblio: In the possession of the American Philosophical Society, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.) regarding 'my volumes of Lamarck.'" (1)

Lamarckian evolutionary theory allows for the mix of creation and the impact of directed creative and psychic or soulful participation. If God is everything and we all act in concert, there is a powerful collective force to be reckoned with. We might even change the nature of our Noble leaders by holding them in the light. Let us not cling to theory that faith or fad alone limits and selects facts to fit the prevailing 'norm'. Dembski must not be censored and censured by the biologists who fight to maintain their stranglehold on evolutionary theory. Charles Fort and Arthur Koestler are as wise as any who have 'observed' in the last century and they would not encourage such censure, I am sure. Creation should not be laid at the feet of God and we are part of God, we must act responsibly and with right action and thought. Come with me, and bring an open-mind that you can assimilate and later test. I will endeavour to see the 'light' in all its harmonizing glory. Barthold Niebuhr put the adventure in these relevant words:

"He who calls what has vanished back again into being, enjoys a BLISS like that of creating."

Thor Heyerdahl was such a person. His insight changed a lot of academic attitudes as he proved many things held sacred were anything but correct. We need to provide far better reason for a change in opinions than the prevailing paradigm if only because they have such a stranglehold on opinion. The propagandists have many writers and academics at their beck and call. This has been true for many millennia, and they have had the ability to destroy most evidence that would disprove their fictions or myths. That is one reason why linguistics and botany or other forensic tools are the best evidences for our effort to present an alternative history. Even when a 99% archaeological certainty that fits facts and established criteria to keep much truth out of the realm of accepted evidence – such as the Roman statue or head found in Mexico – there are those who debunk it or make it seem unimportant.

My personal knowledge of statues at Chichen Itza convinces me there were many Etruscan and Greek artisans at work in Central America. If you ever go there be sure to drop in on the Villas Archaeologique. As you read Heyerdahl in the following quote be cognizant that five separate forensic labs have concurred that cocaine from Peru was part of the diet the mummies of Egypt enjoyed. Balabanova was well aware of the implications of this upon world history. That is why she had all the other labs test her results. Lanning provides artefacts detailing those involved in this trade. These secrets were very important to the potion makers or pharmacists of the ancient world. Hallucinatory drugs probably started the Phoenicians down this road a long time before Egypt. Our artefacts and evidence on stone and bas-reliefs includes the ancient handshake of the Phoenician enterprise that I think Moses and his family benefited from for a very long time.

"Preconceived opinions on the lack of maritime activity in pre-Spanish America have also affected the botanical discussions of the origin of the common garden bean, 'Phaseolus vulgaris'. Last century Könicke, in a paper on the home of the garden bean, pointed out that this crop plant was formerly generally accepted as having been cultivated in Europe by the ancient Greeks and Romans, under the name of Dolickos, Phaseolus, etc. The cultivation of the same bean among the Aborigines of America was therefore explained as the result of its post-Columbian introduction from the Old World by the early Spaniards. (2) This was the theory until Wittmack discovered in 1880 the common garden bean among the archaeological excavations of Reiss and Stübel at the prehistoric cemetery of Ancon, Peru. (3) It was there found interred as food with mummy burials long antedating the European discovery of America. Here was suddenly ample proof of the pre-European cultivation of 'Phaseolus' in America, and beans were subsequently recovered from pre-Incan sites along the entire coast of Peru. At this time, however, pre-Columbian specimens of the 'European' bean were no longer accessible. The view was taken, therefore, that the Old World 'Phaseolus' must after all have originated in aboriginal 'America', and been carried back thence to Europe by the early Spaniards. (4)

{Some have gone so far as to say that bird droppings are the result of all these plant migration. The Yam or American sweet potato turned the tide for the champion of Euro-centric history in botany and zoology. He had to confess he had been wrong after decades of fighting the point. Why then do we celebrate the SLAVER Columbus? Is it not to maintain a colonial secret of deceit upon which our sovereign nations are founded? The Incans had a style of government that utopian philosophers like Sir Francis Bacon used as the model in writing about possible forms of great government.}

More recently Hutchison, Silow and Stephens pointed out, with corroborative botanical evidence, that the 'Phaseolus' beans represent but one more indication of contact between the Old and New World before Columbus. (5) The same problem concerns varieties of the lima bean, 'Phaseolus lunatus', growing wild in Guatemala and common in the earliest Chimu and Nazca graves of coastal Peru. In 1950 Sauer points to certain very early genetic peculiarities of a race of lima beans of primitive characteristics long under cultivation in parts of Indonesia and Indo-China, and says: 'If, then, south-eastern Asia should prove to be a reservoir of the more primitive lima beans, long since extinct in Peru and Mexico, a further problem of the time and manner of trans-Pacific connection is raised by which the American bean was communicated to the native population across the Pacific.' (6) The same problem is also raised by a related bean, the jackbean, or swordbean, 'Canavalia' sp. Stoner and Anderson have called attention to the following: 'The sword bean ('Canavalia'), widely cultivated throughout the Pacific and always considered to be of Old World origin, is now known from prehistoric sites along the coasts of both South America and Mexico.' (7) 'Canavalia' beans excavated from the stratified deposits at Huaca Prieta on the Pacific coast of Peru, date from between 3000 and 1000 BC. (8) Sauer states that its archaeological distribution and relation to wild species now indicate the jackbean as a New World domesticate. (9)

The above brief survey will show that, not only has anthropological thought for nearly a century been biased by ethno-botanical evidence, but to a quite considerable extent anthropological presuppositions have similarly affected American botany. The literature on the origin and spread of certain American and Pacific island cultigens demonstrates that many botanical assumptions have been based on the conviction that the New World was isolated from the rest of the world prior to the voyage of Columbus. Similarly, it has been taken for granted that only Indonesian craft could move eastwards into the open Pacific, whereas the culture of the South American people was presumably confined to their own coastal waters due to the lack of seaworthy craft. The material reviewed above shows that there is adequate evidence of aboriginal export of American plants into the adjacent part of the Pacific island area… Merrill favours Africa as the original homeland of the gourd, and proposes that it reached America across the Atlantic. (10) If the 13-chromosomed cultivated Old World cotton, together with wild American species, were actually employed in the hybridization of the 26 chromosomed New World cotton species then an overseas introduction from the Old World is by far shorter and easier with the westward drifts across the open Atlantic than against the elements across the six times wider Pacific, where no 13-chromosomed cottons exist. The coconut was relayed straight across the Pacific. If it originated in tropic America where all related genera occur, it must have spread with the earliest Pacific voyagers, since it was present in Indonesia at the beginning of the Christian era. The yam has a similar complete trans-Pacific distribution… the same strong ocean river, sweeping from Mexico straight to the Philippines should be taken into account." (11)

The dyeing industry of Phoenician purple is in Peru as well as Mexico, and it was a critical and valuable export of Tyre. There are heraldic similarities and customs galore which we will continue to show. The purpose of adding these tidbits to all the other ones I have covered in other books is to demonstrate two things. First and foremost (for the purposes of this book), we can see academics and science are frequently wrong. Wrong, and motivated! Secondarily there is the matter of megaliths and henges, Pyramids and dolmen or Round Towers that are all over the World. They are key components of the Neolithic Library system that encompassed all the 'Brotherhood' of man in a spiritual and growth oriented culture of tolerance and egalitarian morals.

Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (S.E.T.I)

Author: Wayne Lowe

Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (S.E.T.I)

Have you seen the movie 'Contact' if you haven't then you need to. Im creating a single article based on the vision of this movie. Jodie foster stars as the main character, she is brilliant in this film, making it so powerful, and full of inspiration.

Have you ever wondered what is out there? Have you ever been curious to know how this all began? Don't be put of by the little green men at all. Over the past years, many television programmes show us the countless possibilities that exist to what happened in the creation of the universe. It's so big that I guess we could never reach the end, if there indeed is an end.

One television programme, that got my attention, was the search for a planet that harboured life, like our own planet. It had a term used as 'the wobble effect' meaning the same effects as planet earth. There been a lot of searches for planets that sustain some similarity to our own planet.

If the S.E.T.I project, still running online today, picked up a reading of a signal from the outer reaches of the universe, then Id be very curious to know what it is about, or what it means. There have been some signals that have been intercepted and sent to us, but even our modern day machines cannot understand it.

I wish that in my lifetime, we get some great discoveries of the stars and skies; I would like to see a planet discovered, creating life like earth, with water, and oxygen. As this planet is slowly or in this day an age quiet fast, using up its resources, so we must find another planet, before we die, otherwise we could as a species be wiped out before we've even began to search the heavens.

It would be exciting to know that there is life on other far away planets. Imagine if we could contact them, what would they look like, or what would there advancements be in terms of technology. If we think about it, do UFO's really exist, have people mainly from the USA been abducted. If the alien race has advanced machines, then maybe this is true. Thinking of it in reality, if things like this happened, and were not denied by governments, then truth be told, it would cause panic, on a global scale, wouldn't it? But if the stories are not true, then it's like loosing hope of ever finding, beings from distant galaxies.

Suppose our planet receives a message from another part of the universe. We decode it, what would we want it to say? Like a quote from 'Contact' the movie, if it's just us, then it's an awful waste of space. That to me is true. Why would there be a massive universe with just us in, the lonely planet earth? It would seem lonely. Like the thoughts of there being a god. There are different gods. We've never seen him, but to some, who pray and worship, they feel comfort in knowing that there is a powerful being. If there is an alien race, do they believe in a god, or have they never come across such an idea? Does there history tell of a man similar to Jesus?

Know one can prove that there is a god up in heaven, or the devil. So how can we believe that aliens exist? I think there is a fine line, which separates this. Maybe miracles happen, prayers are answered, is this due to us being able to make them happen? Could we ask god to keep us alive forever, and never die? NO, as to us in the material world it's impossible. For so much death and destruction, for all that pray for peace and comfort, do we actually get it? Speaking from the heart I believe that to the distant future, maybe very soon, we will be in contact with another species. We will receive a message. We have not been far enough into space to find other places, so we can only assume there is going to be life. But say on the other side of the galaxy, there is another sun, where there is a planet the same distance from sun as we are, in the protective layer, which cannot be damaged by radiation, that maybe supporting life like us. Doesn't that sound brilliant? There has to be. We cannot just be the only galaxy to have a sun, in the expanding universe then it must be there.

If all the computers in the world right now connected to the internet, and downloaded the S.E.T.I programme to intercept and download transmissions from the S.E.T.I satellites then we could interpret more of the codes that are given to us. We have to think of the bigger picture don't we? We have to think beyond our planet, think beyond our sight.

I like to think of theories and see from different points of view. So imagine the Roswell accident did happen. An alien craft landed on earth in the USA, and the government kept it to study there technology, by keeping it in area 51, which is heavily guarded. If the sightings of aliens have increased since then, maybe the crash landing was true, as the alien race are searching for there lost craft. This could be true!

I know that the younger generation after me will continue to discover more of space, but it's like winning a race, we need to try harder and go faster to reach the end. We need to build a bigger telescope to search far beyond than we've ever done, build a space station, with a satellite on it, which can search 360 degrees whilst rotating round the earth! A massive project that could combine the entire earth's wealth to design and build the ultimate satellite to penetrate the outer limits.

What would our purpose be hear whilst living on this planet, just to earn our money and die. Or actually make a difference to the human race. It would be like star trek, with different colonies, on different galaxies, where we can support life on space shuttles for years, and then recycle materials to produce new ones without new materials being added, 100% recycling. We could go to planets way beyond imagination.

All these ideas I have, I mustn't be the only one having them. Do you share the dream of wondering what's out there? Do you hope for discovering new beings, new ways of life. Imagine what would be out there. A planet full of wildlife or a planet full of dinosaurs again. We could view from the skies of what the Jurassic period was like. What if we found a species that lived by breathing carbon dioxide, and whose planet gives of oxygen? We could use there oxygen in return for giving them carbon dioxide. It's just a thought, but there are so many possibilities out there.

If the big bang that created everything was the only thing ever to exist, then what created the big bang, if whatever created the big bang, then what created, what the big bang was created from. It goes on forever, like saying who god's mother was, then who god's mother's mother was.

Wouldn't you like to leave this planet and travel, searching for new life? Would you do this to be the first human being to make contact with a new breed of life? I would love to be able to be the first point of contact for our planet. Showing them we have great and beautiful life here. Intelligence, power, and belief. Along with incredible beauty. Animals, water, the skies, the oceans and plants so rare that capture beauty in a single moment. Music to create powerful moods of love, and passion. Different forms of communication, meaning the same things. We could send with us, pictures of Caribbean sea's, animals, such as the dolphin, or tiger, snow fall, rainforests, large cities, and music composed to relax. The planet, at most 95% has designed the way of religions, and believes in some god or another. If we could exchange knowledge in a way that is universal. Would they understand our morse code, or sign language, or even our voices? Would we understand there forms of communication.

If we use about 4% of our brains, maybe they use all of there's, if they have brains, or like all life and non-life, there is some form of control centre, or nucleus, which performs energy, which transforms into actions or sound, or lights.

Think of this then. There may be a planet like ours, which is in the Stone Age. They are just about to discover fire, if we could reach them, we could show them the correct ways to make the planet far better. We could wipe out hunger, stop havoc from happening, create a peaceful place, place are technology on there and advance from then onwards. On a fresh planet. Recycling everything possible, no cars or pollution. Clean air, and no hunger or homeless people. Wouldn't you like to create this planet if you had the chance? Set rules, and be part of the human race that saved a planet from a possible destruction like ours, with hatred and evil in our world. We could see creatures that died out, we could save them, and plant more trees, correct the mistakes we've made, and in the future, when they understand to our level of intelligence, they would know that beings from outer space helped create there world.

There planet could have rare minerals that maybe vital to curing 90% of incurable diseases that we have here on earth. We could use them to save more lives, so the people here who die for no reason, could be saved.

If you have already seen the movie, then what happens near the end is a hope for the survival of the ones who believe there is life out there. Whoever created the little green men, or beings with big black eyes and small bodies, are to blame for people not believing as much. These aliens could be exactly like us, maybe more beautiful than we are as a species. They could have developed Larger brains, or have no reason for bodily hair, as there planet is always warm with a hot glowing sun. They may not even need ears, as they could have developed or have telepathic abilities. Maybe there skin structure is like a planets internal abilities. They survive on minerals from there planet, and sun to keep them alive. We have such a physiology. But we don't need sun that much, although it activates some forms of brain activity, that when it gets dark, we feel tired, and when it's light we wake up. So the alien race could have an advanced cellular structure that needs the sun to keep them alive. As futuristic as it sounds, this could be the future. You would be very mistaken if indeed the future was like what I have explained, and you thought I was silly for saying it.

Back to my planet of discovery, where we help to create the perfect world up to today. With no damaging chemicals affecting the o-zone layer or polluting waters or land. Keeping law and order in order. We could build machines to track meteors, so we can maybe launch rockets at them so they don't destroy the planet, or find some way of living underground, or under the ocean. All these ideas have been made up by writers and directors.

The only movie to touch my soul of life on other planets is 'Contact' I would love to hear Jodie fosters points of view about this subject and the man who created the idea Carl Sagan. A brilliant man who brought the idea into reality. He must have a point of view on this as well.

For all who share this experience with me, and want to talk about it more, then place contact me on this e-mail address, we can design websites, or forums where we can share all the ideas we all have ever dreamed of.

The NSTP ( Non - Spatial Thinking Process ) Theory

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

Abstract The NSTP theory mainly advocates that the material universe is exclusively a group of thinking process/es existing in the form of non-spatial feelings. In computer terminology it regards (material) universe as a non-spatial computer (whose hardware is made up of non-spatial feelings and software is made up of superhuman thoughts) and space as a virtual reality (i.e. a projection of non-spatial mind, a form of illusion/mere appearance). It entails 7 theorems which are to some extent proved or reasonably demonstrated / supported. It is found to be a master-key that can resolve mysteries surrounding Zeno's paradoxes, quantum mechanics, biology, etc through its non - spatial universal mechanical framework.

Main Body The term NSTP (Non - Spatial Thinking Process) in the NSTP theory means thinking process existing in the form of non-spatial feelings. The theory is comprised of 7 theorems that are stated and demonstrated below.

Theorem 1 : Phenomenal mind (i.e. feelings or qualia) is non-spatial. In other words, no kind of feeling, e.g. feeling of bodily pain, can be represented by any spatial structure. 1. The feeling of bodily pain, for example, is conceptual distinct from its bodily counterpart (i.e. identification of some electrochemical signal in brain) for the following two reasons. a. This conceptual distinction is obvious or self - evident or axiomatic to me. [ It is important to note that I advocate 'the principle of universal doubt' : anything may be possible, for that which is believed to be absolutely (or 100 %) certainly true at present could be false as the intellectual capacities of the believer may be limited. Thus all axioms are at the most 99.99...% certain to me. ] b. The knowledge of identification of electrochemical signal is not at all sufficient for the knowledge of the feeling of bodily pain, for example. 2. Theorem 1 has been axiomatic to me. The abstract nature of a spatial structure and mechanism, involving transfer of information (in general, spatial actions), and the abstract nature of a feeling (which can only be experienced) are not equivalent.

Theorem 2 : All kinds of experiences, even abstract thoughts I know I am having, are ultimately feelings (or qualias). 1. When I know I am thinking, for example, this knowledge ultimately comes through some kind of feeling. 2. Theorem 2 is axiomatic to me.

Theorem 3 : I am a (temporal) stream of (non-spatial) mental events (i.e. feelings). I am an NSTP (Non - Spatial Thinking Process). 1. I am a group of feelings. I am not something other than feelings. a. The feeling of pain, for example, is itself sufficient for its own existence. There is no need of some other substance (which is not a feeling itself) for the feeling of pain, for example, to exist. b. When I know that I am feeling pain this knowledge itself, according to theorem 2, is ultimately represented as some feeling. 2. The feeling of bodily pain, for example, represents the idea, concept, or thought of the feeling of bodily pain (itself). Thus every feeling represents some thought. So I am an NSTP.

Theorem 4 : Feelings are most certainly real and thus physical or material. 1. The proposition 'feelings are real' is axiomatic to me. I cannot deny I am feeling something at the moment. This feeling is the most real thing while the whole space, with all spatial entities including my body, could be a form of illusion. (I feel therefore I am.) 2. If something is real then it is physical or material.

Theorem 5 : Space ( as a room or void out there : whether three or higher dimensional, bounded or unbounded ) is a mere form/kind of illusion. ( i.e., exclusively / only a virtual reality; a projection of non-spatial mind; a kind of feeling.) 1. The problem of spatial - non-spatial interaction and ontological complexity- If space and non-spatial mind are both realities (i.e. ontologically existent) then there are following two possibilities : a. Spatial and non-spatial entities interact b. Spatial and non-spatial entities do not interact but rather follow a parallelism In the first case there is a problem 'how spatial and non-spatial physically interact' and in the both cases the model of the universe becomes unnecessarily (ontologically) complex as there are two real (ontologically existent) entities involved rather than just one. 2. The Zeno's paradoxes - a. The racecourse or dichotomy paradox : 'There is no motion because that which is moved must arrive at the middle of its course before it arrives at the end. In order to traverse a line segment it's necessary to reach the halfway point, but this requires first reaching the quarter-way point, which first requires reaching the eighth-way point, and so on without end. Hence motion can never begin. This problem isn't alleviated by the well-known infinite sum 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8... = 1 because Zeno is effectively insisting that the sum be tackled in the reverse direction. What is the first term in such a series ?' (See David Darling : The universal book of mathematics, 2004) b. Achilles and the tortoise : 'This is perhaps the most famous of the Zeno's paradoxes. The slower when running will never be overtaken by the quicker; for that which is persuing must first reach the point from which that which is fleeing started, so that the slower must necessarily always be some distance ahead. Thus, Achilles, however fast he runs, will never catch the plodding tortoise who started first. And yet, of course, in the real world, faster things do overtake slower ones.' (See Simon Blackburn : Dictionary of Philosophy, 1996) The Zeno's paradoxes are out of the misbelief that space exists in the ontological sense, i.e. as a reality, out there. In fact, space is a virtual reality, a form/kind of illusion (existing in the form of non-spatial mind/s). Consequently (spatial) motion is also a form of illusion (to non-spatial observer/s). Thus reality (which is non-spatial) is not constrained by spatial infinities as whatever that is seen (i.e. experienced or felt) as happening in space is a mere illusion, with no resemblance to (non-spatial) reality. And illusion could be of any logically possible kind. In other words, that which creates (or is responsible for) the spatial illusion do not have to bother whether the mover has to first reach half of the distance and so on, or the faster has to first reach the point where the slower started or has infinitely many gaps to traverse, etc. The only thing is that it has to produce some dynamic spatial pattern (actually represented in the form of some non-spatial feelings or states of consciousness), as if a mover moving or the faster overtaking the slower. That's it. [ In analogy with desktop computers a software programmer or graphic designer do not at all have to worry with Zeno's arguments or paradoxes. All s/he has to do is to design and write a program in order to create an appropriate dynamic or changing pattern on the computer monitor screen. ] ( The last two of the four Zeno's paradoxes have different solutions which are stated in my article 'The NSTP theoretical resolution of Zeno's paradoxes'. ) 3. The problem of non-locality in quantum mechanics - In 1997 experiments were conducted in which light particles (i.e. photons) originated under certain conditions and travelled in opposite directions to detectors located about seven miles apart. The amazing results indicated that the photons interacted or communicated with one another instantly or in no time. (See Robert Nadeau and Menas Kafatos, 1999. The non-local universe. 1st ed. Oxford : Oxford University Press) This problem is also out of the misbelief that space exists in the ontological sense, i.e. as a reality, out there. (Because if we believe that space does exist in that sense then any spatial communication would need some appropriate spatial structure and time, whereas in the case of quantum non-locality the communication between photons is instantaneous and with apparently no spatial structure/mechanism in between.) However, space being a virtual reality (to non-spatial observer/s) the quantum non-locality is no longer mysterious or problematic as the photons and their behaviour is a mere form of illusion, a virtual reality. [ Again in analogy with (spatial) desktop computers such a photonic behaviour on the computer monitor screen has no slightest mystery surrounding it, as it is just a dynamic or changing pattern of pixels modulated by some hidden software process/es. ]

Theorem 6 : The spatial illusion (to individual non-spatial minds, such as humans, animals, etc.) is (orderly / thoughtfully) created or modulated by some superhuman non-spatial thinking process/es (NSTP/s). In other words, the individual (or peripheral) NSTP/s are created or modulated by some (central) superhuman NSTP/s (i.e. non-spatial feelings representing superhuman thoughts or ideas). 1. There should be some intelligence responsible for the immense order in the universe (e.g. gravitational phenomenon or quantum non-locality). I/we, the individual NSTP/s, are not responsible for the order (i.e. orderly spatial illusion). In general, in any machine where its peripherals are not intelligent enough to account for their own behaviour there has to be some central intelligent part in the machine to bring out the peripheral happenings or phenomena. [ In analogy with desktop computers the order in the dynamic pattern on the monitor screen is created by some central intelligent hardware representing some software. ] 2. As the spatial illusion (say, gravitational phenomenon or quantum non-locality) could be of any logically possible kind there has to be some way to change the ways individual NSTP/s are generated (or created or produced). And for that to be possible there has to be some central intelligence existing in the form of (non-spatial) feelings, which itself could be modulated to alter (or modulate) the modulation of individual NSTP/s. [ In analogy with desktop computers if the software instructions or parameters (ultimately some hardware pattern) are changed the dynamic pattern on monitor screen could be changed (or even destroyed). ] 3. The central NSTP/s represent superhuman thoughts or ideas (or, in general, mind) as they orderly create individual (non - superhuman) NSTP/s which is a super-task, distinctively beyond human capacities. Theorem 7 : The central superhuman NSTP/s are processed instantaneously (i.e. in zero time). This is because of no spatial limitations. (In space it takes time to transfer data from one spatial location to another.) [ Although a conscious human being, for example, is nothing but an NSTP, it is, at least partially, conceptually (as in contrast with physically) bound to the spatial biochemical brain, and thus the central NSTP/s introduce time lag (i.e. temporal experience) in individual NSTP/s. ] [ Thus, in computer terminology, in the NSTP model of reality the hardware of the universe is composed of non-spatial feelings, while its (central) software is made of superhuman thoughts, and the peripherals represent non-superhuman thoughts, concepts or ideas. ]

How the non - spatial universal computer exactly works. - Consider some experimental setup for detecting quantum non-locality. A conscious (human) being observing one of the photons (say A) is actually a peripheral NSTP. An event in this NSTP has some superhuman or meta representation in the central NSTP/s, which is caused and further processed by static (representing laws of physics : in computer terminology main instructions and parameters in the software) as well as dynamic (representing thoughts used merely for the purpose of processing : in computer terminology the run time data) NSTPs. According to theorem 7 this central processing takes no time, and thus within no time (i.e. instantaneously) creates appropriate illusion of the other photon (say B). Ultimately it appears that the two photons communicate with each other instantaneously or in zero time.

[ Theorems 1 to 4 are relatively axiomatic; theorems 5 to 7 are relatively hypothetical; while theorem 6 and thus theorem 7 are not necessary for the NSTP theory, at least for its nomenclature. ]

Conclusion The 7 theorems of the NSTP theory - 1. Feelings are non - spatial. 2. All experiences are feelings. 3. I, a conscious being, am an NSTP (Non-Spatial Thinking Process). 4. Feelings are physical or material. 5. Space is a virtual reality, that fact which the Zeno's paradoxes necessarily imply (for if space is a reality, i.e. ontologically existent, then Zeno's paradoxes would arise/be unsolved). 6. Individual or peripheral NSTP/s are orderly created by central superhuman NSTP/s. 7. The central superhuman NSTP/s take zero time for being processed. The NSTP theory 1. Maintains both mentalism (or idealism : only mind is real), as only non-spatial mind is a reality, and materialism (or realism : only matter is real), as mind itself is matter. 2. Coincidently entails the ideas of philosophers viz Descartes (mind as non-spatial) and Kant (space as a projection of mind). 3. Strongly supports that idea of solipsism (I'm the only mind in the universe) as well as the idea that any apparently spatial entity could be conscious. 4. Falsifies general relativity, for example, on its physical or ontological side, while retaining its (so called) mathematical validity.

Problems with two other models of reality - 1 : Many - worlds : a. Does not explain exactly how a single world splits into many worlds and how many worlds unite into a single world. b. Does not explain consciousness. (i.e. Does not provide appropriate physical basis for consciousness. ) 2. String theories : a. Do not explain consciousness. b. Do not solve problems like quantum non-locality.

Superultramodern Epistemology [Theory of Knowledge] ( SE )

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

1. The Principle of Universal Doubt : A fundamental principle of investigation Anything may be possible (or nothing is to be believed with absolute certainty or nothing is to be seen as a proof ), for what is believed to be true with 100 % certainty at present may be false. It may be the believer's inability to see otherwise or grasp the truth.

2. I, as a subject, am at the centre of investigation : I should not accept something because someone else (of whatever kind and abilities) believes in it. I've to be satisfied with the idea. However, I would accept something for practical convenience (e.g. As I believe in quantum phenomena though I've never experienced them in person.)

3. I feel therefore I am : The most certain belief in my own existence because I feel something at the moment. It's supposed to be 99.99...% certain (and not 100% because of the principle of universal doubt). It's supposed to be more certain than the law of syllogism (if p implies q and q implies r then p implies r). Probability is supposed to be a byproduct of (human) ignorance.

4. The FR (Flawed Reason) Theory : Limitations to Reason and knowledge.

5. Superultramodern Intuitionism (SI) :

a. Out of the NSTP theory, super/higher knowledge of the universe might be attainable only through intuition / meditation, etc. Also Most of the essential knowledge is obtained through intuition.

b. Superhuman Knowledge and Powers through Meditation : E.g. Changing the (empirical) laws of nature, and in general, modulating consciousness. Knowing god's mind, and higher truths with higher certainty, whether other beings are conscious, etc.

6. Superultramodern Philosophical Methodology (SPM) : So far philosophers have argued too much regarding the nature of mind, self, space, time, and, in general, reality. Now they should understand that the truth on these matters might be known not through too much thinking and debate, but through more or less self - evident propositions, straightforward reasoning, and possibilities. Either, if they are smart enough, they would appreciate it or dismiss it, and thus fail to see the light forever.

Omens superstition or????

Author: Anupam Mishra

As soon as we hear this so-called word 'Omen' we squeeze our nose and feel like the people of this modern age. The people who are living in the 'Scientific era' and this appears to be a matter of great shame if they believe upon this seemingly trash. But I ask you one question and please give me your answer right straight to your heart. Have you ever searched about these things like an unbiased scientist? Science says that we must leave out some of the things since they are nothing but mere co-incidences without any significance at all. Conversely, saints say in the God's creation everything has reason. Who is right saint or scientist? Have you ever taken enough pain to search out the reality? Or you just veiled yourself in the scientific dogmatism as soon as you come across these things? Tell me are you just the gramophone that runs on to sing the already recorded song? Newton invented the theory of gravity since he did not pass on the so-called common phenomena occurring from centuries. He got something uncommon in the falling of the 'Apple'. The 'Apple' which has become legend now. If Newton would have passed on this incident as mere co-incidence he had lost his eternity. He got eternity because he saw the uncommon in the common. He was not a common man who sees everything without any new perspective at all. But what about you? Every man is a born scientist; once he understands that he has also the same mind as all have. The difference borders on very thin line when we turn ourselves escapists to say 'Friends we are not scientists we are common human beings'.

In the Vedas it is written in the clearest of terms that the whole universe is nothing but an idea. I took this truth straight to my heart. Then I heard Vivekananda's saying that 'Everything has reason in this universe. So, we can't say anything unreasonable'. I engraved this quotation deep into the pigeonholes of my brain and went on unveiling the truth especially of the omens. I decided right then that I would not take any of the incidents or co-incidents on physical level rather I would locate the thought behind it. Since the Vedas say life is nothing but the mass of thoughts.

The case is the same, which I discussed, in my last article 'Free will exists or not'. The hero of this case history is the same young man. Here is the story:

I don't remember the exact month and date of this incident. But more or less it was the evening of April, 2004. I was preparing to go into my meditation room. Just in the mid-way the young man called me back ""Bhaiya (brother) just give me five minutes"". I came back in utter frustration thinking that boy had no sense. When he knows that I am going to meditate why he is disturbing me a lot? He could have waited for a while. Why this boy seems to me always impatient? Always involved into his problems without caring a bit about others?

However, I suppressed my emotions since I did not want to hurt him. He asked me ""Brother do you think I can be a Pilot because since 4 years I have been struggling hard without finding a ray of hope in my way?"" As soon as he asked the question I started noticing some strange phenomena occurring around me which I will discuss later. After noticing all the phenomena I told him he would be a Pilot undoubtedly but after going through lot of uncertainties and unexpected hindrances. He asked what kind of uncertainties and obstacles would be there? I told him that I couldn't say right now. But still you would have a last laugh I am sure. He went back to his home with little satisfaction and lingering hope.

Before telling you what happened around me to enable me to peep into young man's future just add something into your mind. Whenever any idea takes birth in your mind it gives birth to another chain of baby- thoughts outside. I call these baby-thoughts the voice of God. However, you must have proper eyes to behold these infant- thoughts. They contain in themselves all the possible outcome of your idea. They tell the future.

Now recollect the boy called me in the mid- way when I was going for meditation. And I came back in utter frustration. Now, stop and observe. The idea of becoming Pilot germinated in the young man's mind. That idea gave birth to another idea of putting obstacle in spiritual journey of mine and then went on projecting the idea of frustration on my part. When anybody is going for worship and somebody stops him, do you think it is a good omen? No, someone is going for a good work and you are putting obstacle it is a sheer sin on your part.

So, precisely, his idea initially gave birth to twin brothers namely the idea of obstacle and the idea of frustration. Then I noticed during my conversation that my child was wailing as the roof might have fallen upon him. The idea is of weeping. Then I felt greatly disgusted thinking he must went away. I lost my whole interest in his question. The idea was of disinterestedness.

Right then I heard a noice of falling of some utensils in my kitchen. The idea is of falling or disturbances whatever you may term as. But at last I saw my mother was lighting incense in front of a deity. The idea was of spiritual blessing.

So, now note down the different ideas, which took birth as soon as the question emanated in the young man's mind. They were namely obstacles, frustration, disinterestedness, weeping, falling and at last spiritual blessing. Therefore, I told him that he would become pilot but only after going through a lot of lean phases. The boy became pilot in November 2004. Before November 2004, the boy got lot of opportunities, tons of hopes, host of assurances but without any fructification at all. He became entirely hopeless. A part of it I also shared with him. Since I was doing experiment if it might succeed it will boost me up to go further. Or I will stuck right there. However I am grateful to god he showed me the right way.

Now go slightly deeper. Remember from the seeds of the previous karmas your future- tree blooms. In other words your past- deeds decide the future since karmas are the root cause of the forthcoming incidents. Okay I found the future interwined in the present but was it possible to locate his past karmas as well out of the same events happened around me? Now recollect the incidents again namely wailing, falling of utensils and obstacles in spiritual journey of mine. Don't you think there was a kind of violence in all those incidents? As I told you that my child was weeping as 'roof might have fallen over him'. The falling of utensils naturally would create lot of harsh sounds. The obstacles in my spiritual journey resulted in good amount of frustration on my part. It made me highly irritated. I was finding myself unable to face the boy even for a moment.

And those all were done by his single question. Why his question created such a turbulent atmosphere? So, there must be something behind his question also. And that 'Behind' obviously was his karmas which he did in his last births. The severity and the violent nature of the omens clearly showing the karmas were very far from being good. However, karmas emanate from a particular habit. The habit was his selfishness, which projected the question. So, behind his karmas his tendency of selfishness must be responsible. And this selfishness must be great because the omens were bordering upon abnormality. God message was clear ""the boy would not be able to start his career unless he uproots his inherited root of selfishness"".

However, at last the burning of incense in front of a deity was like the silver lining between the dark clouds. It was clearly indicating that the boy would be able to eradicate his deficiency of selfishness, which simultaneously led to start his career.

But why this so called selfishness caused hindrances in his career? It is the mystery, which I leave upon you to unravel.

Equality

Author: dr anil maheshwari

What is Equality? Are men and women really equal to each other??????????? Please read on to find out! Anatomically-(physically)-------both are different. Physiologically(relating to sex-hormones)--------both are different. Genetically ---------both are different and have different reproductive systems------(xx=female)------(xy=male) Biologically-(sexually)-------both have different needs. Emotionally-------both react differently to situations in day-to-day life. Mentally------both think differently about values of life or otherwise. Socially and Traditionally------both have different roles and duties to perform in society----Man is basically the Bread-winner and Provider-----Woman is basically a care-taker(nurse). From the family view-point---a man(father) is considered as the head(intellect) of the family and the woman(mother) is the heart of the family. In chinese mythology---- The female force is represented by Yin(negative force of the universe) & the male force is represented by Yang(positive force) Everything about a man and a woman is different----right from their physical appearence, their needs, the duties they perform, the roles they play in society, and even the way they procreate ---- in the act of creation (sexual act)---man is the active partner--the sexual act being initiated, maintained, completed and dominated by the male(man usually in the superior position)---while the female is just the passive recepient---and conceptually too man being the 'seed' and the woman being the 'soil'. In Hindu mythology---Man generally represents Aasman (the sky)---while the woman is Dharti (earth)------man(purush) is known as the Creator(rachieta) and the woman(prakriti) is his creation(rachna)---Can the creator be equal to his creation???????------Man is the possessor----woman is his possession---Can the possessor be equal to his possession????????? God and Mother nature have created and endowed man and woman with absolutely different qualities, attributes and functions------So can anyone please throw some light on "" Any aspect in which man and woman are equal"" and should be treated as equals????????? Your thoughts are eagerly awaited

Superultramodern Engineering (SEng)

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

Superultramodern Engineering (SEng) is non - spatial engineering (in contrast to spatial engineering). It's a practical application of the NSTP (Non -Spatial Thinking Process) theory, where the goal is to modulate the non -spatial superhuman engine in order to change the laws of nature and, in general, the spatial illusion and alike which no spatial engineering can ever achieve. The most likely way to do SEng is 'Meditation', with a constant passion/desire to change the laws of nature. (It's quite obvious that if space is a form of illusion and reality is non - spatial then no spatial activity would be helpful to delve into reality.)

Moon Gazing - Is It Right For You?

Author: Gary Nugent

Like a lot of kids, my folks gave me a 60mm telescope for Christmas one year. The scope was a typical department-store brand - not very good - but to a 12-year old kid it opened up the universe.

Through it I got to see the moons of Jupiter, the phases of Venus and the rings of Saturn. But above all these eye-openers, there was the moon. There in the eyepiece stood craggy mountains - spires casting long shadows across crater lowlands, dark maria and (painfully) bright highlands, a surface pockmarked with craters of all sizes, some with bright ejecta rays and some funny squiggle type features. I soon learned that the greatest amount of detail was seen along the terminator, that line splitting light from dark, where shadows played across features showing them in stark contrast. And to cap it all, each night different features could be seen in detail.

They say that as you get older, your memory plays tricks on you - you remember good things more than the bad. I remember lots of clear, frosty winter nights when I could point my 'scope at the moon and scan its disk for some feature I had not seen in relief before. These days, the skies seem to be cloudy much more frequently and the frosty winter nights are few and far between. I guess that's global warming for you!

Time moved on and I moved in and out of committee positions in astronomy societies, editing some magazines along the way (I now put my own ezine, called Photon - http://www.photonezine.com), together every couple of months). Astronomy became more about the bureaucracy of running clubs than about looking through a telescope. Then, in the late '90s, wanting to get back to my astronomical ""roots"", I bought a 'real' telescope, an 8"" reflector which I readily turned towards the moon. Stunning views once again assailed my eyes (prompting memories of halcyon nights as a 12 year old looking through my old 60mm scope).

I'm a software writer (or should that be ""engineer""?) by profession, so I wrote a bit of software which would help me in planning my moon observations. It told me when the moon would rise and set, what phase it was and other stuff. When people who'd seen it said they wanted a copy, I polished it up and released it as Shareware under the title LunarPhase (http://www.nightskyobserver.com/LunarPhase). It's now evolved into a more comprehensive application called LunarPhase Pro (http://www.nightskyobserver.com/LunarPhaseCD). I'm pleased that's it's been receiving very good reviews - I feel like I've done something to make other people more aware of my old friend in the sky.

With the encroachment of light pollution across the globe, the pristine skies of my youth have been gradually fading behind the yellow-orange glow of ever more street lamps. Where stars once twinkled on a velvet background, only a few hardy garnets of light now poke through the misty haze and background neon glow. But the Moon is always there, outshining any murk and pollution we cough up into the sky.

It's a shame we don't treat the sky with the same respect we give our national parks. After all, the sky belongs to all of us. How many of us really appreciate people throwing garbage into our back yards or littering our parks. Why should we allow others to pollute our natural resources?

These days, I'm getting into lunar photography with digital cameras and more sophisticated CCD cameras. I've posted a few of my images on my website if you'd like to see them. I still find a night under the stars with a partially lit Moon high in the sky a relaxing and humbling pursuit. The Moon is the only object in the solar system where we can see real surface detail.

Growing up during the Apollo era, I have to say that those missions played a great part in spurring on my interest in the moon. My interest is alive and well and extending in other directions (more on that another time). I hope yours is too.

Onward and upward, as they say!

Rediscovering the Mind

Author: Robert Bruce Baird

REDISCOVERING THE MIND:

From the viewpoint of a modern microbiologist, we hear the call for integration and common sense in sciences that are all too often devising separate stakes and battlements to pontificate from, on high. The 'experts' thus proving their ignorance because the result inevitably is specious ego and puffery. Truth did not divide herself up for prissy 'nerds' to prevail upon, with their massive convolutions and devious attempts to practice buffoonery upon her.

In August of 1980 Psychology Today ran an article by Harold J. Morowitz, professor of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University. I recommend a complete reading of this article for anyone who has suffered through a complete exposure to all that our modern education system is comprised of; as it tries to convince you that everything is 'black and white' and that no soul exists through avoidance of its instruction (except a few artists who defy the norm).

""REDISCOVERING THE MIND;

Physical scientists are returning to the view that thought - meaning mind - is one of nature's ultimate realities'.

The study of life at all levels, from social to molecular behavior, has in modern times relied on reductionism as the chief explanatory concept. This approach to knowledge tries to comprehend one level of scientific phenomena in terms of concepts at a lower and presumably more fundamental level... Reductionism at the psychological level is exemplified by the viewpoint in Carl Sagan's best selling book THE DRAGONS OF EDEN.

He writes: 'My fundamental premise about the brain is that its workings- what we sometimes call 'mind' - are a consequence of its anatomy and, physiology and nothing more.' As a further demonstration of this trend of thought, we note that Sagan's glossary does not contain the words mind, consciousness, perception, awareness or thought, but rather deals with entries such as synapse, lobotomy, proteins and electrodes…

Werner Heisenberg, one of the founders of the new physics, became deeply involved in the issues of philosophy and humanism. In PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEMS OF QUANTUM PHYSICS, he wrote of physicists having to renounce thoughts of an objective time-scale common to all observers, and of events in time and space that are independent of our ability to observe them. Heisenberg stressed that the laws of nature no longer dealt with elementary particles, but with our knowledge of these particles - that is, with the 'contents of our minds'. Erwin Schrödinger, the man who formulated the fundamental equation of quantum mechanics, wrote an extraordinary little book in 1958 called MIND AND MATTER. In this series of essays, he moved from the results of the new physics to a rather mystical view of the universe that he identified with the 'perennial philosophy' of Aldous Huxley. Schrödinger was the first of the quantum theoreticians to express sympathy with the UPANISHADS and Eastern philosophical thought. A growing body of literature now embodies this perspective, including two popular works. THE TAO OF PHYSICS by Fritjof Capra, and THE DANCING WU-LI MASTERS by Gary Zukav...

However, the only simple and consistent description physicists were able to assign to a measurement involved an observer's becoming aware of the result. Thus the physical event and the content of the human mind were inseparable. This linkage forced many researchers to seriously consider consciousness as an integral part of the structure of physics. Such interpretations moved science toward the 'idealist' as contracted with the 'realist' conception of philosophy.

The views of a large number of contemporary physical scientists are summed up in the essay 'Remarks on the Mind-Body Question' written by Nobel laureate Eugene Wigner. Wigner begins by pointing out that most physical scientists have returned to the recognition that thought - meaning the mind - is primary. He goes on to state: 'It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to the consciousness.' And he concludes by noting how remarkable it is that the scientific study of the world led to the content of consciousness as an ultimate reality.'...

The founders of modern atomic theory did not start out to impose a 'mentalist' picture on the world. Rather, they began with the opposite point of view and were forced to the present day position in order to explain experimental results...

The results of this chain of reasoning will probably lend more aid and comfort to Eastern mystics than to neurophysiologists and molecular biologists; nevertheless, the closed loop follows from a straightforward combination of the explanatory processes of recognized experts in the three separate sciences. Since individuals seldom work with more than one of these paradigms, the general problem has received little attention...

We now understand the troublesome features in a forceful commitment to uncritical reductionism as a solution to the problem of mind. We have discussed the weaknesses of that position. In addition to being weak, it is a dangerous view, since the way we respond to our fellow human beings is dependent on the way we conceptualize them in our theoretical formulations. If we envision our fellows solely as animals or machines, we drain our interactions of humanistic richness. If we seek our behavioral norms in the study of animal societies, we ignore those uniquely human features that so much enrich our lives. Radical reductionism offers very little in the area of moral imperatives! Further, it presents the wrong glossary of terms for a humanistic pursuit.""

The Minnesota Twins study has been on-going for decades and it has produced some remarkable results that few reports see the impact of in reference to the very nature of 'humanistic richness' and soulful potentialities. Only once is the top researcher allowed to mention ESP. Much as the Harvard study I have reported, the participants are family members but because they were separated at birth and (in this case) twins - there is a greater connection of ESP or psychic abilities than normal. Isn't this just common sense? Who can doubt it, you might say! Yet most people think ESP is some weird attribute or freak of nature rather than a gift we all have 'within', if they think it exists at all.

The majority of people today do not know about Tesla's 'non-force info packets', 'free energy', 'energy from vacuum machines by Bearden' or what layers of time/space are involved in all psychic phenomena. Thus those who say they believe in ESP are at a loss to explain and they avoid any real involvement with it. The scientists are similarly ignorant of these things and they (after all) are 'experts' like the doctors who deny the mind-body connection with the soul that is vital to psychic utilization. Our present culture DENIED these truly human and fantastic or exquisite depths of being.

Superultramodern Science (SS) and The Millennium Problems in Mathematics

Author: Kedar Joshi (1979- )

In this article I address 3 of the 7 millennium problems in mathematics announced by the Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI), USA. I propose solutions (not all of which are meant to be conclusive) to the problems using the ideas in Superultramodern Science (SS), which is my foremost creation. (The remaining 4 problems seem to be outside the scope of SS.) It is of utmost importance to note that the nature of the ideas and consequently of the solutions is very radical and it would take painstaking efforts to fully understand and appreciate the solutions proposed. Also it has to be considered that according to Conmathematics (Conceptual Mathematics) : the superultramdoern mathematical science, the superultramodern scientific solutions to the problems are, though apparently philosophical, in fact, mathematical. Virtually all of the 3 problems are such that they demand revolutionary changes in the current (modern/ultramodern) sciences. And SS is thought to be an appropriate change. I shall state the problems exactly as they are stated on the website of the CMI. However, the statements are the ones which are brief and not the ones that are official and descriptive. This choice is out of the revolutionary nature of the solutions which makes it senseless to consider the conventional or orthodox symbolic patterns which essentially make the (official) statements look complicated and descriptive.

1. Yang - Mills Theory The laws of quantum physics stand to the world of elementary particles in the way that Newton's laws of classical mechanics stand to the macroscopic world. Almost half a century ago, Yang and Mills introduced a remarkable new framework to describe elementary particles using structures that also occur in geometry. Quantum Yang-Mills theory is now the foundation of most of elementary particle theory, and its predictions have been tested at many experimental laboratories, but its mathematical foundation is still unclear. The successful use of Yang-Mills theory to describe the strong interactions of elementary particles depends on a subtle quantum mechanical property called the ""mass gap:"" the quantum particles have positive masses, even though the classical waves travel at the speed of light. This property has been discovered by physicists from experiment and confirmed by computer simulations, but it still has not been understood from a theoretical point of view. Progress in establishing the existence of the Yang-Mills theory and a mass gap and will require the introduction of fundamental new ideas both in physics and in mathematics.

SS solution : I suppose that light, for example, is a classical wave and photon, for example, is a quantum particle. It's an assumption in modern/ultramodern science (relativity theory) that no massive entity travels at (or above) the speed of light. From the Superultramodern Scientific perspective [in particular, the NSTP (Non - Spatial Thinking Process) theoretical perspective] space is a form of illusion, mass is bulk or quantity of matter, wave and particle are two conceptually distinct entities existing in the form of non-spatial states of consciousness/feelings. To sum up, wave -particle behaviour is an orderly governed illusion where the massive quantum particles do not really travel in space but are presented at the time of wave collapse.

2. Poincare Conjecture If we stretch a rubber band around the surface of an apple, then we can shrink it down to a point by moving it slowly, without tearing it and without allowing it to leave the surface. On the other hand, if we imagine that the same rubber band has somehow been stretched in the appropriate direction around a doughnut, then there is no way of shrinking it to a point without breaking either the rubber band or the doughnut. We say the surface of the apple is ""simply connected,"" but that the surface of the doughnut is not. Poincaré, almost a hundred years ago, knew that a two dimensional sphere is essentially characterized by this property of simple connectivity, and asked the corresponding question for the three dimensional sphere (the set of points in four dimensional space at unit distance from the origin). This question turned out to be extraordinarily difficult, and mathematicians have been struggling with it ever since.

SS solution : According to the Joshian conjecture in Superultramdoern Science (SS), that space has 3 and only 3 spatial dimensions, the concept of three dimensional sphere (and consequently Poincare conjecture itself) is absurd.

3. P vs NP Suppose that you are organizing housing accommodations for a group of four hundred university students. Space is limited and only one hundred of the students will receive places in the dormitory. To complicate matters, the Dean has provided you with a list of pairs of incompatible students, and requested that no pair from this list appear in your final choice. This is an example of what computer scientists call an NP-problem, since it is easy to check if a given choice of one hundred students proposed by a coworker is satisfactory (i.e., no pair from taken from your coworker's list also appears on the list from the Dean's office), however the task of generating such a list from scratch seems to be so hard as to be completely impractical. Indeed, the total number of ways of choosing one hundred students from the four hundred applicants is greater than the number of atoms in the known universe! Thus no future civilization could ever hope to build a supercomputer capable of solving the problem by brute force; that is, by checking every possible combination of 100 students. However, this apparent difficulty may only reflect the lack of ingenuity of your programmer. In fact, one of the outstanding problems in computer science is determining whether questions exist whose answer can be quickly checked, but which require an impossibly long time to solve by any direct procedure. Problems like the one listed above certainly seem to be of this kind, but so far no one has managed to prove that any of them really are so hard as they appear, i.e., that there really is no feasible way to generate an answer with the help of a computer. Stephen Cook and Leonid Levin formulated the P (i.e., easy to find) versus NP (i.e., easy to check) problem independently in 1971.

SS solution : According to the NSTP theory, one of the major of components of SS, all problems which, in principle, have answers are, in fact, P problems. This implication is based on the idea of the non -spatial superhuman computer that takes zero time to process information.
