Free Will & Quantum

0
It is natural to suspect that those who evoke the Quantum at every turn are a bit deranged. Has a Quantum obsession replaced God? God died, but not the need to obsess? (Dominique Deux made a wry remark in...
People love to be stupid, and not just because it is easier than being intelligent. Being stupid is lonely and embarrassing in individuals, so it is better practiced in groups. Not only is that smarter, but it provides with the...
A drastically back-to-basic reasoning shows that the universe is held together and ordered by a Faster Than Light Interaction, QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT. Nature is beautifully simple and clever. (For those who spurn Physics, let me point out that Quantum Entanglement, being the Fundamental...
My statement: “THE LOGOS IS MADE OF ELEMENTS OF BRAIN SIMPLIFIED” Brought the observation: ”I’m afraid I can’t imagine what this means.” (Massimo from Scientia Salon.) Others have asked for more details. Here they are. The statement was admittedly abstruse. It is...

LOGOS: Brain Elements

0
The LOGOS Sings of Elements Of Brain Simplified Into Discourses The Logos started to dominate Greek philosophy with Heraclitus (circa 500 BCE). What’s the Logos? The discourse. Correct discourse, namely, well, logical. Greek science discovered around 500 CE that much more...

Science: Magical Common Sense

0
Science Goes Beyond Common Sense Systematized Some say that science destroyed our old illusions with relentless explanations: “Geocentrism”, the illusion that the Sun turns around the Earth, is often quoted as an example: However, geocentrism appeared only after it became clear...

CATEGORIZING the MIND

0
What is the mind made of? We have progressed enormously as far as the brain objects are concerned: neurons, axons, dendrites, glial cells, neurohormones, various organs and substructures in the brain, etc. But is there a broad mathematical framework to...

Quantum Identity Is Strong

0
Krugman just wrote “Plutocrats Against Democracy”. I have to comment much further about this pet subject of mine. Or how evil plutocrats collapse civilization. However, I got distracted meanwhile by an article on identity. (Some of the essay below is...

DeKanting Philosophy

0
Writing this essay made me sad. I had come across a group of self-assured philosophers, singing the praises of Kant. That was a moment of solitude. Sheep praising the wolf. When I brought up objections, pointing at the enormous...

Plutocracy’s Tentacles All Over Physics

0
There is a lot of politics in theoretical physics. Why? Because physics makes people dream, and tells them how to think. Thus, if one wants to make people in advanced countries dream and think wrong, one has to start with...

Stoicism Is All Too Natural

0
All we animals have to be stoic, at one point or another, whether we like it, or not, whether human, or not. At some point we have to decide that, whatever it is, will be, and that’s fine. This...

Nuke That Comet

0
Many are not held back about being strident. Why should not intellectuals do the same? After all, what they do is most important. So Nietzsche was strident, for example against German racist, anti-Semite, mediocre nationalistic, herd like aspiring bourgeois....

Aristotle Destroyed Democracy

0
Abstract: Aristotle replaced the supremacy, and rule, of freedom, openness, intelligence by the pursuit of happiness. So doing, Aristotle demolished the natural, instinctual, human ethics which had triumphed in Athens earlier. This fatally weakened the animal spirits without which...

Big Bang Proof Turns To Dust

0
Dust peppers outer space, around the enormous Milky Way galaxy. The Milky Way is much more massive than any other galaxy in the fifty galaxy strong Local Group (only the giant Andromeda has a comparable mass). The dimly radiating...

Consciousness is Quantum

0
Consciousness is Quantum, because it cannot be anything else. Another, more vague argument, is that consciousness is ultimate, and so is Quantum Physics. It’s simple and natural to identify them, on the ground that there should be just one...
The old thinking about the brain was that neurons were given at birth, and then progressively died. A researcher named Altman found otherwise in 1962: he showed that adult human brains created new neurons. Few believed him, even fewer...
