AKA The Great Awakening of Physics
"Saying what needs to be said about the most sucky parts of physics"
Coalition is just another name for conspiracy.
- Robert Anton Wilson (1932-)
There are a million words for conspiracy.
Here's my favorite.
Surely it must be admitted that if the conceptions of Physics are presented to the beginner in erroneous language, there is a danger that in many instances these conceptions will never be properly acquired. And is not accurate language as cheap as inaccurate?
- George M. Minchin
Falsehood is taught as truth every day.
To the great benefit of the 1%.
This is also why the "ether" had to go. It was too descriptive, too obvious. Fields are much more vague, so we get handed "Field theory".
Similarly, virtual particles and "can't knows" have replaced more obvious analogies.
Technical people don't make good slaves.
- Vernor Vinge (1944-)
But, increasingly, technical people are not needed.
Said. With. A. Robot. Voice.
The accumulation of all powers -- legislative, executive and judiciary -- in the same hands, whether of one, a few or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elected, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.
- James Madison
Welcome to Earth, home of ten million
The Chinese are clearly inculcating the idea that science is exciting and important, and that's why they're graduating four times as many engineers as we are, and that's just happened over the last 20 years.
- Bill Gates
"exciting and important"?
"Good money to be had"?
The conflict of theories, leading, as it eventually must, to the survival of the fittest, is advantageous.
- Grove Karl Gilbert
It would be advantageous, if there was a level playing field but the 1% have their fingers in every pie.
The essence of modernity is that progress no longer waits on genius; instead we have learned to put our faith in the organized efforts of ordinary men.
- William Wickenden
The advantage of "ordinary men" is they are more easily controlled by such ego-boosting.
Money actually means something to them as well.
The extraordinary development of modern science may be her undoing. Specialism, now a necessity, has fragmented the specialities themselves in a way that makes the outlook hazardous. The workers lose all sense of proportion in a maze of minutiae.
- William Osler
Ignorance equals profit.
The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.
- Mark Twain
tEmP theorists compensate for their inhuman urges by brainwashing generations of new physicis students.
The flight of most members of a profession to the high empyrean, where they can work peacefully on purely scientific problems, isolated from the turmoil of real life, was perhaps quite appropriate at an earlier stage of science; but in today's world it is a luxury we cannot afford.
- Gerald Holton, "The Scientific Imagination: Case Studies", 1978
"isolation from the turmoil of real life" is more essential than ever, but almost infinitely impossible at any university or particle smashing facility today.
Hence Einstein's point that physics should be a hobby...
"But it makes control harder, so it must be eliminated."
- the 1%
Right-O, we'll get right on that.
The fundamental concept in social science is Power, in the same sense in which Energy is the fundamental concept in physics.
- Bertrand Russell, "Power: A New Social Analysis", 1938
Sad but true (in the case of social science).
As to physics, the day tEmP theorists say that energy is the fundamental concept in physics is the day I drop dead of a heart attack.
Such a key point will never be expressed by them.
The Google services and apps that we interact with on a daily basis aren't the company's main product. They are the harvesting machines that dig up and process the stuff that Google really sells: for-profit intelligence.
- Yasha Levine
The greatest productive force is human selfishness.
- Robert Heinlein
The greatest producer of human selfishness is...human selfishness.
People are ridiculously easy to control when you play off their selfishness.
There is a reason that churches get their kids to play Musical Chairs to the exclusion of all other games.
One chair left, two kids -- cue extreme selfishness.
There is nothing productive about selfishness, of course.
So the quote is wrong in that sense.
But still useful in explaining how sick things like tEmP theories can survive for decades with no visible means of support.
The greatest victory of man over obstacles would be his own delivery from the heavy encumbrance of parasitism with which all life is burdened.
- Theobald Smith, "Parasitism And Disease", 1934
With the 1% being the ultimate parasites.
The history of Science is not a mere record of isolated discoveries; it is a narrative of the conflict of two contending powers, the expansive force of the human intellect on one side, and the compression arising from traditionary faith and human interests on the other.
- John William Draper
Ah yes, 'human interests'...very diplomatically stated.
The influence of modern physics goes beyond technology. It extends to the realm of thought and culture where it has led to a deep revision in man's conception of the universe and his relation to it
- Fritjof Capra
The 1% are well aware of this and have used physics like a blunt instrument for over one hundred years.
The instinct for collecting, which began, as in other animals, as an adaptive property, could always in man spread beyond reason; it could become a hoarding mania.
- Cyril Dean Darlington
As life gets more controlled, more people are losing their minds.
Hoarding is just one symptom of this.
The laws expressing the relations between energy and matter are not solely of importance in pure science. They necessarily come first in order in the whole record of human experience, and they control, in the last resort, the rise or fall of political systems, the freedom or bondage of nations, the movements of commerce and industry, the origin of wealth and poverty, and the general physical welfare of the race.
- Frederick Soddy
So of course the 1% has to mess with them.
The measure of greatness in a scientific idea is the extent to which it stimulates thought and opens up new lines of research.
- Paul Dirac (1902-1984)
This is, of course, a ludicrous metric.
By this metric, a bold-faced lie that launched dozens of companies, drew billions of investment dollars and dominated the press for a decade would be the greatest idea ever.
Wait, that describes String Theory.
The most disgraceful cause of the scarcity of remedies is that even those who know them, do not want to point them out, as if they were going to lose what they pass on to others.
- Pliny the Elder
Apparently Pliny had run-ins with a tEmP theorist.
Understandable. Greed is timeless.
The most important thing about power is to make sure you don't have to use it.
- Edwin Land (1909-1991)
Good people will try to follow this.
While bad people laugh at them.
The most powerful factors in the world are clear ideas in the minds of energetic men of good will.
- John Arthur Thomson
Don't count out the trillionaire who wants to bury that new idea.
The most destructive factor in the world is a destructive idea in the hands of rich people.
The moving power of mathematical invention is not reasoning but imagination.
- Augustus De Morgan
Yes, taking off one's clothes and running around the back yard is "moving" (i.e. liberating) but it is the constraints that do the work.
Constraints force us to remove, or at least not follow, garbage ideas.
Except in tEmP theories, of course.
The only fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it.
- John Locke, "Some Thoughts Concerning Education", 1693
Little wonder the educational system is under the most determined, powerful and vicious of attacks.
For the past hundred years.
To the 1%, the greatest calamity that can befall a person is to learn something. Particularly something simple. Basic.
The progress of mankind is due exclusively to the progress of natural sciences, not to morals, religion or philosophy.
- Justus von Liebig
Hard to imagine a more erroneous quote.
The 1% don't want us to progress morally or philosophically.
Science has been very useful to them -- the NSA would hardly exist without it -- so it has been encouraged.
There is also a great deal of money in useless science like building still more telescopes, or sending probes to lifeless blobs of ice and rock (i.e. asteroids).
The really frightening thing about totalitarianism is not that it commits 'atrocities' but that it attacks the concept of objective truth; it claims to control the past as well as the future.
- Eric Arthur "George Orwell" Blair (1903-1950)
tEmP theorists have done this with the ether.
Not only is the ether not used by theories today, you will also not find it even mentioned in most new tEmP physics books.
Apparently we have always been at war with the ether.
The regularity with which we conclude that further advances in a particular field are impossible seems equaled only by the regularity with which events prove that we are of too limited vision. And it always seems to be those who have the fullest opportunity to know who are the most limited in view.
- Willis R. Whitney
Feynman had "the fullest opportunity to know" and did more to limit physics than anyone else ever.
Physics needs Doubting Thomases like the Dollar store needs more corn syrup.
The other term for types like Feynman is gatekeepers.
The 1%, in their minds, must control everything. Installing gatekeepers is extremely cost effective. They can steer an entire field into the ditch with almost no one noticing.
The Secret Government is an interlocking network of offical functionaries, spies, mercenaries, ex-generals, profiteers and superpatriots, who, for a variety of motives, operate outside the legitimate institutions of government. Presidents have turned to them when they can't win the support of the Congress or the people, creating that unsupervised power so feared by the framers of our Constitution.
- Bill Moyers
Hillary and Hussein sure did.
The spirit of science is not to prejudge, but to give any honest query a fair shake. - Allen Wheelis
Good luck with that.
tEmP theorist will defend each other to the death.
Science is a cost center. Lies are the opposite.
The struggle for existence holds as much in the intellectual as in the physical world. A theory is a species of thinking, and its right to exist is co-extensive with its power of resisting extinction by its rivals.
- Thomas Henry Huxley, "Science And Culture", 1890
tEmP theories survive due to mob rule.
They thrive due to media bias.
They delusionally imagine themselves walking between the raindrops, chanting 'never been proven wrong' about their Standard Model.
The temptation to form premature theories upon insufficient data is the bane of our profession.
- Arthur Conan Doyle
Premature theories are quickly discredited.
Deliberately broken theories promoted by the majority of gatekeepers?
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
- H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)
Also known as:
With the last one (and often the first one) being put forward by the conspirators.
Scam example #1:
1. Stars don't orbit the SMBH as expected
2. We must find the hidden matter doing this
3. Dark matter
Here's another scam:
1. Space should be 10
times hotter than we measure
2. tEmP theorists have no response
3. Ignore the problem and praise the Standard Model
Here's a third:
1. Relativity and Quantum Mechanics blow up at end points
2. tEmP theorists have no response
3. Keep them both, we'll deal with it later (i.e. never). Welcome to the Standard Model party. Have a beer.
The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
- Albert Einstein
"those who look on and do nothing" are the most well paid.
The world of mathematics and theoretical physics is hierarchical. That was my first exposure to it. There's a limit beyond which one cannot progress. The differences between the limiting abilities of those on successively higher steps of the pyramid are enormous. I have not seen described anywhere the shock a talented man experiences when he finds, late in his academic life, that there are others enormously more talented than he. I have personally seen more tears shed by grown men and women over this discovery than I would have believed possible. Most of those men and women shift to fields where they can compete on more equal terms.
- Luis W. Alvarez, "Alvarez: Adventures Of A Physicist", 1987
True in engineering as well.
You fly through school, love math and chem and physics.
Then you start studying engineering.
You look around the class and see, wall-to-wall, smart people.
Doesn't mean you are in the wrong field, though.
Just that you will have to earn your stripes.
Math (S____), on the other hand, is a very limited field.
You can become a teacher, accountant or actuary.
There is never a shortage of teachers. Accounting is surprisingly difficult (as my co-worker found out). And actuaries are as rare as unicorns.
My math-loving older brother ended up working for the phone company.
There is no profession so incompatible with original enquiry as is a Scotch Professorship, where one's income depends on the numbers of pupils. Is there one Professor in Edinburgh pursuing science with zeal? Are they not all occupied as showmen whose principal object is to attract pupils and make money?
- David Brewster
But true everywhere now.
By the way, that should be 'Scots' professorship.
Scotch is the tape, booze and/or fabric guard.
There's a big, big, difference between how the media think about news and how scientists think about news. For the media, what makes it news is that it's new -- and that creates a bias in the media to look for brand new results. My view would be that brand new results would be the most likely to be wrong. People are doing all kinds of interesting work but none of it is new. So you guys don’t report it because it’s not new. No wonder the public gets confused.
- Naomi Oreskes, Harvard "History of Science" professor, [Source]
Yes, most likely to be wrong.
And thus to change.
And thus to prompt the need to report the change.
And then, and then, and then.
All great for selling newspapers.
Think of a single problem confronting the world today: Disease, poverty, global warming, etc. If the problem is going to be solved, it is science that is going to solve it. Scientists tend to be unappreciated in the world at large, but you can hardly overstate the importance of the work they do.
- Bill Bryson
The three "problems" you mention are 1%-created (and in the case of global warming imaginary).
Only those with the 10+ digit incomes will ever fix poverty.
Disease is far too profitable to be fixed.
Science fanboys aren't helping anything and in fact are making things worse. Knock it off.
Those who are incapable of committing great crimes do not readily suspect them in others.
- Francois de La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)
This is why they show us garbage "news", constantly.
We get overwhelmed with the raw ugliness of what they choose to show us, so we withdraw.
Making us more likely to care less about their ultra-massive crimes -- we aren't told about them, the details are incredibly sordid to wade through and we would have to get off our comfortable trust-the-media couch to think for ourselves.
Too much "news" is worse than no news.
Thought must never submit -- to a dogma, party, passion, interest, preconceived idea or to whatever it may be -- save to the facts themselves, because for thought, submission would mean ceasing to be.
- [Jules] Henri Poincare (1854-1912), 1909
Poincare is absolutely right.
The key to realize here is that we first submit our thoughts (rather than our 'freedom' or our land, etc.)
Orwell's "How many fingers?" moment in "1984" is very important to work through in our minds.
Basically it comes down to picking your battles.
On the most important battles, like conservative capitalism vs.
communism, we must be the most resolute. #040
To furnish the means of acquiring knowledge is the greatest benefit that can be conferred upon mankind.
- John Quincy Adams
Given that education has been in decline for decades, the 1% are therefore guilty of depriving 99% of the world of "the greatest benefit that can be conferred".
Back to the quote...
Outside of the school system, "acquiring knowledge" is approximately useless.
Wisdom is what is needed.
Without wisdom we are rudderless, and easily steered.
To make more products for people who wanted to express themselves would mean creating variety. But the systems of mass production that had been developed in America were only profitable if they made large numbers of the same objects. This had fitted perfectly with the limited range of desires of a conformist society. The expressive self threatened this whole system of manufacturing.
- Adam Curtis, "The Century Of The Self"
Hence the introduction of "shock fashion".
The 'shock' makes emotional people want it. Since most are emotion-dominated, the demand will be huge and this leads to economies of manufacturing scale. AKA profit.
The 'fashion' means it is disposable. People will soon tire of it and want the next shock.
Today, with all the power and wealth in the hands of a very few, the 99% can be shut out of all products.
This is done through constant 'innovation' -- but with easy things like packaging, buzzwords and "new shiny".
A guy promoting a book called "The Century Of The Self" is going to be biased toward the individual but, unless there is a major economic shakeup, we live in the biggest of big business times.
To one, science is an exalted goddess; to another it is a cow which provides him with butter.
- Friedrich Schiller, 1796
These days there are far too many 'anothers' at the udder.
Today the most civilized countries of the world spend a maximum of their income on war and a minimum on education.
- Nikola Tesla
No wonder the Establishment hated Tesla.
He made them look bad, and was autonomous.
Unless science is controlled by a greater moral force, it will become the Antichrist prophesied by the early Christians.
- Charles Augustus Lindbergh (1902-1974)
Everything has become the Antichrist because there is no money in the truth and the 1% are the Antichrist incarnate.
Very few doctors are men of science in any very serious sense; they're men of technique.
- Robertson Davies
That technique is the technique of processing the most cattle per hour.
10 second diagnoses and a bottle of pills prescription passes for "caring for the patient". Doctors are highly paid servants of drug companies.
Physics is, of course, no different.
There is no 'health' in physics today.
Every problem gets the same prescription -- keep making all the mistakes you have been making (very important), don't change a thing and blame it all on something else. Preferably dark.
Walking the streets of Tokyo with Hawking in his wheelchair, I felt as if I were taking a walk through Galilee with Jesus Christ as crowds of Japanese silently streamed after us, stretching out their hands to touch Hawking's wheelchair. The crowds had streamed after Einstein (when he visited Japan in 1922) as they streamed after Hawking seventy years later. They showed exquisite choice in their heroes. Somehow they understood that Einstein and Hawking were not just great scientists, but great human beings.
- Freeman Dyson
Ah, is there a single great thing Hawking has done?
Not that I'm aware of.
As to the little circus in Tokyo, the press set up all of these people. They build up, and tear down, whoever they want. Worldclass manipulators. Not a good thing.
We are apt to consider that invention is the result of spontaneous action of some heavenborn genius, whose advent we must patiently wait for, but cannot artificially produce. It is unquestionable, however, that education, legal enactments and general social conditions have a stupendous influence on the development of the originative faculty present in a nation and determine whether it shall be a fountain of new ideas or become simply a purchaser from others of ready-made inventions.
- Ambrose Fleming
America has so become the latter.
America, you've won the race to the bottom.
Thanks, George Soros.
We are in the grip of a scientific materialism, caught in a vicious cycle where our security today seems to depend on regimentation and weapons which will ruin us tomorrow.
- Charles Augustus Lindbergh (1902-1974)
Man did this guy threaten the 1%...
We have a right, in various ways, to act upon our unfavourable opinion of any one, not to the oppression of his individuality, but in the exercise of ours. We are not bound, for example, to seek his society; we have a right to avoid it (though not to parade the avoidance), for we have a right to choose the society most acceptable to us. We have a right, and it may be our duty, to caution others against him, if we think his example or conversation likely to have a pernicious effect on those with whom he associates.
- John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)
I have the right to have an unfavorable opinion of tEmP theories and tEmP theorists.
I have further exercised the right to come up with a better theory.
And an actual low-level model.
tEmP theorists have the right to carry on like idiots.
As they probably will.
We know from painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
The worst is when the oppressor -- i.e. the 1% -- pretends to be fair, pretends to care about human rights, while it marches the 99% towards tyranny, torture and early death.
The point is that we have the physics we have today because it is profitable for our oppressors.
There is nothing good about it. It is broken. Currently we are stuck with it.
We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
- Carl Sagan
What better way to control the 99% than an elite priesthood?
Imagine how many more would understand things if tEmP theorists stopped with the worm holes and dark matter nonsense.
Control through tech sums up our times.
We live in a world where unfortunately the distinction between true and false appears to become increasingly blurred by manipulation of facts, by exploitation of uncritical minds, and by the pollution of the language.
- Arne Tiselius
We look at the present through a rear view mirror. We march backwards into the future. - Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980)
Because the 1% don't want anything to change.
The translation of this quote is: straight line.
Life moves in a straight line because it is fully controlled from the top down by those with all the power and money and influence.
If you don't like this, support ground level people.
Like the author of Spring-And-Loop Theory.
We must not forget that when radium was discovered no one knew that it would prove useful in hospitals. The work was one of pure science. And this is a proof that scientific work must not be considered from the point of view of the direct usefulness of it. It must be done for itself, for the beauty of science, and then there is always the chance that a scientific discovery may become like the radium -- a benefit for humanity.
- Marie Curie
There is little proof that exposing people to radioactivity helps them in any way.
The stats show that survival rates don't increase due to radiation treatments.
But certain 1% bank balances increase.
And then there's that eugenics side-benefit.
What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention, and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.
- Herbert Alexander Simon
"consumes the attention of its recipients" = Goal #1 of the 1%.
Keeping in mind they have all the money and power, and there are millions of them (1% of 7 billion is 70 million) it is not feasible for them to do this in every area of life.
The wretched Standard Model, the fundamentally unsound special+general theory of relativity and the inadequate by definition quantum mechanics ALL steal a lot of potential eyeball time.
From clearly better theories like Spring-And-Loop Theory.
What of the scientists who assumed that continents were stable, that the hereditary material was protein, or that all other galaxies lay within the Milky Way? These false and abandoned efforts were pursued with passion by brilliant and honourable scientists.
- Stephen Jay Gould
The 1% are unconcerned with how many have fallen or will fall into the trap of tEmP theories.
Should something new come along, tEmP theories will be instantly and retroactively deleted.
When natural inclination develops into a passionate desire, one advances towards his goal in seven-league boots.
- Nikola Tesla, "My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla"
Turning this around, when a system is controlled there is no passion.
Do you see any passion today?
Only negative and critical forms, and usually from leftist protesters.
When the ability to move across social class becomes virtually impossible, I think it is the beginning of the end of a country. And because education is so critical to success in this country, if we don't figure out a way to create greater mobility across social class, I do think it will be the beginning of the end.
- Shirley Tilghman
Yes, the game is pretty much over.
When understanding of the universe has become widespread, when the majority of men know that the stars are not sources of light but worlds, perhaps inhabited worlds like ours, then the Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity.
- Adolf Hitler
Except it won't happen then because religion is useful to the 1%.
Why, sir, there is every probability that you will soon be able to tax it!
- Michael Faraday (1791-1867), to William Gladstone, Chancellor of the Exchequer, when asked of electricity's practical worth
This is what the 1% thinks of science.
Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term. One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and making constructive use of vigorous criticism.
- Carl Sagan
The 1% want control above all else.
This means a lack of change is the norm.
As time goes by, things get out of date. Since the 1% has no concern whatsoever about any individual, company or area, they just move to the next "region of prosperity" wherever it happens to be in the world.
Then, knowing where it will go next and making the moves necessary to capitalize on the next step before anyone else catches on, brings them the maximum profit.
It is actually a side benefit of their methods that 99%ers suffer from being left behind. This cuts out any competition with the 1%.
They are the ultimate in zero-sum-game players. They want to win, always. They want 99%ers to lose, as much as possible, always.
You can't make a man unsee what he has seen.
- Bertolt Brecht, "The Life Of Galileo"
This is why tEmP theorists don't want to hear about new physics theories.
If it is a bad theory, they have wasted their time.
But if it is a good theory, their career is over (in their mind) because someone else now has a better theory than them.
The ego of tEmP theorists is so high, they would rather we all have nothing useful, rather than everyone have everything that actually works. Amazing.
tEmP theorists are the ultimate non-scientists -- they are not even curious.
You may live to see man-made horrors beyond your comprehension.
- Nikola Tesla
Yes the 1% are bringing them to us now, thanks.
You wait for the war to happen like vultures.
If you want to help, prevent the war.
- Isaac Asimov
There is no money in preventing war.
The increase in the assets of the Federal Reserve banks from 143 million dollars in 1913 to 45 billion dollars in 1949 went directly to the private stockholders of the banks.
- Eustace Mullins, "The Federal Reserve Conspiracy"
By making money artificially scarce, interest rates throughout the country can be arbitrarily raised and the bank tax on all business and cost of living increased for the profit of the banks owning these regional central banks, and without the slightest benefit to the people. These 12 corporations together cover the whole country and monopolize and use for private gain every dollar of the public currency, and all public revenues of the United States.
- Alfred Owen Crozier, testimony on October 23, 1913 to the Senate Committee on Banking and Currency
The powers vested in the Federal Reserve Board seem to me highly dangerous especially when there is political control of the Board. I should be sorry to hold stock in a bank subject to such dominations. The Federal Reserve bill as it stands seems to me to open the way to a vast inflation of the currency. I do not like to think that any law can be passed that will make it possible to submerge the gold standard in a flood of irredeemable paper currency.
- Henry Cabot Lodge Sr., 1913
Examining the organization and function of the Federal Reserve Banks, and applying the relevant factors, we conclude that the Reserve Banks are not federal instrumentalities for purposes of the FTCA [Federal Tort Claims Act], but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations.
- Lewis v. United States, where a man hit by a Federal Reserve Bank vehicle tried to sue the federal government
The world is controlled by energy, not "power". Power is energy times time. But, when they killed JFK, they got power over the US military for all time.
Totalitarian regimes often rely on "thought-terminating cliches" to enforce conformity on their subjects.
Great choice of words.
The 99% have had a giant bullseye painted on them for a long time.
The National Security Agency's capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left. Such is the ability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide. If a dictator ever took over, the N.S.A. could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back.
- Senator Frank Church, in 1975
The future belongs to science. More and more she will control the destinies of the nations. Already she has them in her crucible and on her balances.
- William Osler
The 1% rule by deception, so tEmP theories are merely doing their master's bidding.
As to this Osler dude. Wow. Naive doesn't begin to describe the guy.
This is what you get from a physician -- pretend-to-be science.
The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid 'dens of crime' that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the offices of a thoroughly nasty business concern.
- C.S. Lewis
It is the desire for explanations that are at once systematic and controllable by factual evidence that generates science.
- Ernest Nagel, "The Structure Of Science", 1961
It is precisely "the publication and sharing of explanations that are at once systematic and controllable by factual evidence" that scares the crap out of the 1%.
Science has so accustomed us to devising and accepting theories to account for the facts we observe, however fantastic, that our minds must begin their manufacture before we are aware of it.
- Gene Wolfe
That's the idea.
A networked learning machine's most basic rule? Strengthen the connections to those who succeed, weaken them to those who fail.
- Howard Bloom (1943-)
And control systems work in an opposite way.
2,00,000+ people in prison is hugely profitable.
Half a million a year dying from cigarettes? Same.
The 1% don't care about the 99%. We are their prey.
A single idea, if it is right, saves us the labor of an infinity of experiences.
- Jacques Maritain
An "infinity" of experiences? No. Not even close, lol.
A single idea can be valuable.
But even then, it requires follow-up ideas. And effort. And luck. And favorable press. And not be a threat to the 1%.
The notion of an idea saving experiences is laughable.
Humans crave experiences. Whenever we figure out one area, we just move to other ones. Earth is not enough for us these days, so we talk about truly stupid ideas like going to Mars, and even further destinations.
Almost everyone seems to be quite sure that the differences between the methodologies of history and of the natural sciences are vast.
- Karl Raimund Popper, "The Myth of the Framework: In Defence Of Science And Rationality"
When, in reality, whoever 'wins the war' writes the history books, and funds whatever they want to fund.
The same is true in physics. Get there first with an idea and, no matter how stupid the idea, it will persist.
The same few people (the 1%) do the same types of ugly things across all areas of life.
Life is effectively tarred with the dinosauric brush of the 1%.
Thanks to the 1%, life is a monotone when it should express the full spectrum.
People must understand that science is inherently neither a potential for good nor for evil. It is a potential to be harnessed by man to do his bidding. - Glenn T. Seaborg
Yeah, good luck with that.
A better guide is to follow the money.
Scientists often have a naive faith that if only they could discover enough facts about a problem, these facts would somehow arrange themselves in a compelling and true solution.
- Theodosius Dobzhansky
Makes sense, actually.
They get paid to gather facts.
Their speculations on what they have found are not judged in any sort of rational, intelligent way.
Civilization is the art of creating useless needs.

There is no money in solving problems.
There is no money in selling vegetables.

Coming up with better theories of physics.
Throughout the course of history, in every period, and in almost every country, we find a small number of gurus, of great artists, of men of science. The gurus of to-day are not necessarily more wise than those of a thousand years ago; our artists are not necessarily greater than those of early Greece; they are more likely to be inferior; and of course, our men of science are not necessarily more intelligent than those of old; yet one thing is certain, their knowledge is at once more extensive and more accurate. The acquisition and systematization of positive knowledge is the only human activity which is truly cumulative and progressive. Our civilization is essentially different from earlier ones because our knowledge of the world and of ourselves is deeper, more precise, and more certain; because we have gradually learned to disentangle the forces of nature; and because we have contrived, by strict obedience to their laws, to capture them and to divert them to the gratification of our own needs.
- George Sarton, "Introduction To The History Of Science", 1927
Knowledge .NE. A good theory
Knowledge .NE. Progress
Knowledge is not the only form of progress, nor even the best one.
Enlightened thinking leads to all forms of progress.
Knowledge is like junk food, or worse, without a good theory.
tEmP theorists are the donut eaters and meth heads of science.
The 1% are donut and meth makers.
As a scientist and geneticist I started to feel that science would probably soon reach the point where its interference into the life processes would be counterproductive if a properly designed governing policy was not implemented.
A heavily overcrowded planet, ninety-five percent urbanized with nuclear energy as the main source of energy and with all aspects of life highly computerized, is not too pleasant a place for human life.
The life of any individual soon will be predictable from birth to death. Medicine, able to cure almost everything, will make the load of accumulated defects too heavy in the next two or three centuries. The artificial prolongation of life, which looked like a very bright idea when I started research in aging about twenty- five years ago, has now lost its attractiveness for me.
This is because I now know that the aging process is so multiform and complex that the real technology and chemistry of its prevention by artificial interference must be too complex and expensive -- it would be the privilege of a few, not the method for the majority.
I also was deeply concerned about the fact that most research is now either directly or indirectly related to military projects and objectives for power.
- Zhores Medvedev (1925-)
Bacon, of course, had a more modern mind than
ShakespeareEdward de Vere. Bacon had a sense of history; he felt that his era, the seventeenth century, was the beginning of a scientific age, and he wanted the veneration of the texts of Aristotle to be replaced by a direct investigation of nature.
- Jorge Luis Borges, "The Enigma Of
ShakespeareEdward de Vere", 1964
Mainstream CIA media can't even admit who was behind the Shakes-a-spear pen name.

Before a war, military science seems a real science, like astronomy;
but after a war it seems more like astrology.

What chance do we have of trying to sort out the rat's nest that are tEmP theories?
Climate change means we should be having fewer children,

Eugenics is, for sure, the goal behind the climate change scam.
Destruction of the family produces the same results.
Prosecuting home schoolers? Same.
Forced stabbings (i.e. vaccinations). Ditto.
Wage freezes while inflation continues = harder and harder to survive, let alone reproduce.

Consider the most famous pure dystopian tale of modern times, "1984", by George Orwell, published in 1948. I consider it an abominably poor book. It made a big hit, in my opinion, only because it rode the tidal wave of cold war sentiment in the United States.
- Isaac Asimov
A rare off note from Mr. Asimov.
Jealous that Orwell will be more talked about 100 years from now, bro?
Decisions to cut aid for the terminally ill, the elderly, dependent children, food stamps, even school lunches, are being made by men with full stomachs who live in comfortable houses with two cars and umpteen tax shelters. None of them go to bed hungry.

Every attempt to prove crime to be due to a constitution peculiar only to criminals has failed signally. The social conditions which foster the great majority of crimes are more needful of study and improvement.

The incarcerated pay out at $50k/year, every year.
Why would any massive corporation in the business of incarceration want to change anything?
Similarly, if you pay LHC scientists a billion dollars a year, why shouldn't they smash particles together until the cows come home?
Scientists are just as vulnerable to wishful thinking, just as likely to be tempted by base motives, just as venal and gullible and forgetful as the rest of humankind.

The pressure of occupation and the incessant stream of impressions pouring into our consciousness through all the gateways of knowledge make modern existence hazardous in many ways.

This is the way the 1% like us.
Overloaded. Off balance. Unable to calmly process anything.
Following their lead.
He talked to us for an hour on what was ahead of us; cautioned us against giving up the desire to push ahead by continued study and work. He warned us against allowing our present accomplishments to be the high spot in our lives. He urged us not to wait for a brilliant idea before beginning independent research, and emphasized the fact the Lavoisier's first contribution to chemistry was the analysis of a sample of gypsum. He told us that the fields in which the great masters had worked were still fruitful; the ground had only been scratched and the gleaner could be sure of ample reward.
- James F. Norris, on Ira Remsen's remarks to a group of graduate students about to go out into the world
The only thing false is the idea of a 'sure ample reward'.
These days the 1% reward nobody but themselves, or those furthering the goals of the 1%.
A better physics theory would be a disaster, and so it will be carefully ignored, discredited or nuked.
How dare we speak of the laws of chance?
Is not chance the antithesis of all law?
- Joseph Bertrand
The notion of 'chance' serves the 1% well.
We are told we all "have a chance" (even though we are not on the same level as the elite, who will ignore us, steal from us or criticize us...forever).
Things happen "by accident" (when in fact they always happen for a reason).
I am concerned at the over-enthusiasm of unbridled reformers who initiate costly and frequently useless or even dangerous schemes. Progress is not synonymous with radicalism.
- Myre Sim
Except when the mainstream is totally wrong, which these days is pretty much all the time.
So yes and no.
We should try to be conservative, balanced and reasonable.
But some things need a "revolution" to change. It is just that they know this and so they make sure they are the leaders of the revolution. So that they can co-opt it in ways that suit them.
In the case of physics, the revolution needed is to return to the ether.
I despise Birth-Control first because it is an entirely meaningless word; and is used so as to curry favour even with those who would first recoil from its real meaning. The proceeding these quack doctors recommend does not control any birth. But these people know perfectly well that they dare not write the plain word Birth Prevention, in any one of the hundred places where they write the hypocritical word Birth-Control. They know as well as I do that the very word Birth-Prevention would strike a chill into the public. Therefore they use a conventional and unmeaning word, which may make the quack medicine sound more innocuous.
- G. K. Chesterton
And boy do the 1%ers hate children.
"Planned Parenthood" is the same game, only elevated.
PP gets hundreds of millions of government, and spends a large share of it on abortions. Even though it is illegal to do this.
I find myself now preaching about the golden age of manned spaceflight, because something went on there, within us, that we're missing. When we went to the Moon, it was not only just standing on a new plateau for all mankind. We changed the way everybody in the world thought of themselves. It was a change that went on inside of us. And we're losing that.
- R. Walter Cunningham
The 1% don't want the 99% to be happy.
We are told things are very inspiring, but they don't want to inspire us.
Space was, and is, the new battleground.
If it works, it's obsolete.

McLuhan, channelling the salesman's motto.
This is, of course, an idiotic phrase. But it speaks to the desperate desire of people to make money, usually by selling something to someone else.
Rechargeable batteries are a disaster to a battery salesman.
But they're great for lawn mowers because when the battery stops taking a charge, the mower might as well be thrown out. Perfect!
If no use is made of the labors of past ages, the world must remain always in the infancy of knowledge.
- Marcus Tullius Cicero
This is exactly what those in control want -- all of us "barefoot and pregnant" to borrow a phrase from the Catholic control playbook.
In science, the ultimate lost labor of the past is the ether.
If the task of scientific methodology is to piece together an account of what scientists actually do, then the testimony of biologists should be heard with specially close attention. Biologists work very close to the frontier between bewilderment and understanding. Biology is complex, messy and richly various, like real life; it travels faster nowadays than physics or chemistry (which is just as well, since it has so much farther to go), and it travels nearer to the ground. It should therefore give us a specially direct and immediate insight into science in the making.
- Peter B. Medawar (1915-1987), "Induction And Intuition In Scientific Thought", 1969
Mr. Medawar rarely strikes the mark.
Biology could no more influence the direction or approach of physics than a paint-by-number coloring book could influence color theory.
Physics doesn't need a good example to follow.
Physics needs to be less corrupt.
If Watson and I had not discovered the DNA structure, instead of being revealed with a flourish it would have trickled out and its impact would have been far less. For this sort of reason Stent had argued that a scientific discovery is more akin to a work of art than is generally admitted. Style, he argues, is as important as content.
- Francis Crick
The first sentence makes zero sense.
The connections and affiliations of the releaser are the most important aspect. If you are one of them, or harmless, your work will be promoted.
The ability to fictionalize is also good, but steering things even further in the wrong direction is the surest bet.
Q. "What do you see happening to the idea of dignity to human species if this population growth continues at its present rate?"
A. "It's going to destroy it all. I use what I call my bathroom metaphor. If two people live in an apartment, and there are two bathrooms, then both have what I call freedom of the bathroom -- they can go to the bathroom any time they want, and stay as long as they want. And this is ideal. And everyone believes in the freedom of the bathroom. It should be right there in the Constitution. But if you have 20 people in the apartment and two bathrooms, no matter how much every person believes in freedom of the bathroom, there is no such thing. You have to set up, you have to set up times for each person, you have to bang at the door, aren't you through yet, and so on. And in the same way, democracy cannot survive overpopulation. Human dignity cannot survive it. Convenience and decency cannot survive it. As you put more and more people onto the world, the value of life not only declines, but it disappears. It doesn't matter if someone dies.
- Isaac Asimov, "Bill Moyers' World Of Ideas", Oct 17 1988
In principal we all benefit from having more space.
Treating people, and the Earth, like some theoretical game of shuffleboard is pretty bad.
Concluding with "It doesn't matter if someone dies" marks this as the low point of Asimov's career.
The 1% wants to close the wealth door behind them.

All experience has shown that mankind is more disposed to suffer -- while evils are sufferable -- than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
- The Four Horsemen
tEmP theorists would rather suffer with their broken theories.
Even though every patch, hack and invention makes broken tEmP theories even more broken.
Because tEmP payment systems are working just fine, thanQ.
Part of fighting the 1% is to have a good memory.
When you know that one hundred and twenty years ago all physicists thought there was an ether, you are less inclined to attribute tEmP theories to simple stupidity.
The Internet is the most liberating tool for humanity ever invented, and also the best for surveillance. It's not one or the other. It's both.
- John Perry Barlow (1947-2018)
Science is the same way.
Physics has the potential to enlighten everyone.
And to blow up everyone.
If all ideas have to be bought, you have an intellectually regressive system that will assure you have a highly knowledgeable elite and an ignorant mass.

It's widely assumed that you can't compete with free, but this has not been my experience.
- John Perry Barlow (1947-2018)
Spring-And-Loop Theory is currently challenging this bit of conventional wisdom.
It was thought in the Middle Ages that people simply make many observations, and the observations themselves suggest the laws. But it does not work that way. It takes much more imagination than that. So the next thing we have to talk about is where the new ideas come from. Actually, it does not make any difference, as long as they come.
- Richard Phillips Feynman (1918-1988)
Can you imagine him saying "it makes no difference"?
Was Feynman arrogant, or trying to hide a better way?
I now believe it was the latter.
Back to the quote...
The "method" behind the first two sentences is still very much in action today.
This way tEmP theorists get paid no matter what.
They put ants under magnifying glasses, watch them burn and carefully record what they saw. Money follows.
The alternative would be to propose and test theories.
The days of doing this are long gone.
There are plenty of pretend tests and pretend confirmations, but isn't it interesting how we are never shown the data filtering, calculations (i.e. the equations being used) and most importantly the assumptions.
Here is a simple test to either demonstrate conspiracy (or reveal that you are unable to see conspiracies).
Look at the ratings (thumbs up to thumbs down) for videos.
Take, for example, this highly informative and visually stunning one called How do spacecraft navigate in space ?
This is a perfect video and should have a perfect rating. That is, no thumbs down. Yet, at the time of writing, it had 8,164 thumbs up and 192 thumbs down.
Those thumbs down are not done by people. Simply no way.
No human would vote the video down ever.
So what is going on?
Answer: YouTube controls ratings of videos.
They are a private company (with private agendas).
To understand consider this analogy: You own a restaurant, bar or saloon. You could settle for the money people put into the jukebox and make maybe a fifty bucks a night.
You could sell carbonated beverages and make say two hundred bucks a night.
Or you could sell booze, and make thousands of dollars a night.
If YouTube served up mainly informative videos, their total views would be hundreds or thousands of times less.
And people would learn things. Disaster.
So they have to artificially push the most disposable videos. Some random dude does some weird thing? Give it a good rating because few will watch it twice.
This same principle is seen in advertising. Good movies get no advertising, while the worst ones -- think "Wild Wild West" -- get almost non-stop advertising.
Result? Everyone sees every movie.
I watch, on average, one movie in a hundred. And the ratio continues to get larger with time.
The minority -- presently the ruling class -- has the school and the press, and usually the church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and use them as its tool.
- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Einstein was a man very much ahead of his time.
And very much a true free thinker.
Not perfect, mind you.
Never figured out we need models, over equations and semantic word games.
But one of the best of the last century. For sure.
The desire for security and the feeling of insecurity are the same thing. To hold your breath is to lose your breath. A society based on the quest for security is nothing but a breath-retention contest in which everyone is as taut as a drum and as purple as a beet.
- Alan Wilson Watts (1915-1973), "The Wisdom Of Insecurity"
Here is the vicious circle: if you feel separate from your organic life, you feel driven to survive; survival -- going on living -- thus becomes a duty and also a drag because you are not fully with it; because it does not quite come up to expectations, you continue to hope that it will, to crave for more time, to feel driven all the more to go on.
- Alan Wilson Watts (1915-1973)
We are 'driven to survive' by the 1%, who regulate us more and more.
For example, it is effectively impossible to go 'off the grid' (where we could accept our place in the universe, be self-sufficient and responsible for ourselves only).
We aren't even allowed to collect rain water, or let our weeds grow.
We think that the world is limited and explained by its past. We tend to think that what happened in the past determines what is going to happen next, and we do not see that it is exactly the other way around! What is always the source of the world is the present; the past doesn't explain a thing. The past trails behind the present like the wake of a ship, and eventually disappears.
- Alan Wilson Watts (1915-1973)
Imagine how much this scares the 1%.
All their past control is as nothing, should the 99% understand the system.
Hence the need for trolls -- the 1% distributed everywhere.
Technology is destructive only in the hands of people who do not realize that they are one and the same process as the universe.
- Alan Wilson Watts (1915-1973)
In other words, most tEmP theorists.
And the 1%, who think they are better than the universe.
Yet they want to guilt the 99% who are just trying to survive.
When we attempt to exercise power or control over someone else, we cannot avoid giving that person the very same power or control over us.
- Alan Wilson Watts (1915-1973), "The Way Of Zen"
tEmP theorists, by being so useless at physics, have given up all their power and control over physics.
The people can shut down the LHC.
If they work together.
He of whom many are afraid ought to fear many.

The 1%, of whom the 99% are afraid, ought to fear the 99%.
And they do, hence their iron fisted grip on police forces and the courts.
Our democracy is but a name. We vote? What does that mean? It means that we choose between two bodies of real, though not avowed, autocrats. We choose between Tweedledum and Tweedledee. You ask for votes for women. What good can votes do when ten-elevenths of the land of Great Britain belongs to 200,000 and only one-eleventh to the rest of the 40,000,000? Have your men with their millions of votes freed themselves from this injustice?
- Helen Adams Keller (1880-1968), in 1911
Things have not changed in 107 years.
The ruling class will be overthrown with (1) information and (2) unity of the 99%.
This is why there is so much censorship of social media.
The literati find the new electronic environment far more threatening than do those less committed to literacy as a way of life. When an individual or social group feels that its whole identity is jeopardized by social or psychic change, its natural reaction is to lash out in defensive fury. But for all their lamentations, the revolution has already taken place.
- Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980)
The only problem with this sort of reasoning is that it assumes a level playing field.
The people behind the media, etc. have all the money.
Because they print all the money, and then loan it to government (the most irresponsible group there is).
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
- Alvin Toffler
And so it must be attacked the most thoroughly.
Leftists lie. Only, ever and always.
Besides, there is no money in the truth.
There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.
- Warren Edward Buffett (1930-)
Evil people subvert things because it makes them money.
Physics today is deliberately difficult.
The health field is deliberately difficult. Imagine stabbing children almost one hundred times, injecting poisons and toxins into the most fragile of humans.
Understanding others is deliberately difficult. The name creates the nature, but this is never taught.
A bad design with a good presentation is doomed eventually.
A good design with a bad presentation is doomed immediately.
A great design with even a rudimentary presentation is the worst case scenario to the powers that be.
Might does not make right but it sure makes what is.
- Edward Paul Abbey (1927-1989)
In this world of sin and sorrow if virtue triumphs over vice it is not because it is virtuous, but because it has bigger and better guns; if honesty prevails over double-dealing, it is not because it is honest, but because it has a stronger army more nobly led; and if good overcomes evil it is not because it is good, but because it has a well-lined purse. It is well to have right on your side, but it is madness to forget that, unless we have might as well, it will avail us nothing.
- W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)
The ultimate might is truth.
Arbitrary power has seldom been introduced in any country at once. It must be introduced by slow degrees, and as it were step by step.
- Philip Dormer Stanhope (1694-1773)
We weren't fed dark matter and dark energy at the beginning.
First everyone had to be moved away from the ether -- the most obvious of models.
Today we are being moved toward total trust in particle smashing. We are not shown the data, we don't know how results are filtered and processed. We are just told "conclusions" that are usually the most fanciful of speculations.
Or pathetic attempts to explain away anomalous results that would normally be enough to discord broken theories.
The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.
- Charles Franklin Kettering (1876-1958)
The 1%, and all things negative, hate change.
By the way, change by itself brings nothing good.
The truth, or a better way, brings progress.
People who create 20% of the results believe they deserve 80% of the rewards. - Pat Riley
The 1% who create nothing, but control the publishing of results, believe they deserve 99% of the rewards.

And in every field.
Perfection is perfectly simple; fouling things up requires true skill.

There are two things that have been true throughout history in big hunks. You can find differences in ten years, but in 50 year hunks, 100 years hunks, you'll find two things to be true. One, the world is always getting better. Two, people always think it's getting worse.

Technology is getting better.
The 1% (and thus their control) is getting worse.
And Penn Jillette is the last person on Earth I would turn to for a clear picture of things.

Today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, governments, big corporations, religious and political groups. I ask, in my writing, "What is real?" because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives. I distrust their power. It is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same.

If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it.

It is kind of an idiotic notion, when you think deeper about it. One truth? The only thing I can imagine one truth about is "2+2=4". More complicated things require ever more detailed answers. With at least some part of the answer changing over time.
One science? Which one might that be? Scatology?
One industry? Like salt mining?
One brotherhood? Man will my sister be angry.
Absolute statements suck.
The day we realize the mainstream media wants nothing we want, and everything we don't want, will be a great day indeed.
- Floyd Maxwell (1957-)
D5. Dec 5. 2018.
I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence.
- Eugene Victor Debs (1855-1926)
Dude was a socialist.
As if socialism doesn't have the same hierarchy of those on the top oppressing those on the bottom. With the only (key) difference being their group on the top is smaller while their group on the bottom is bigger.
Tell ya, no one cons like a leftist.
Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy, rotten system.
- Dorothy Day
In my opinion, we don't devote nearly enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.
- Bill Watterson, "Calvin and Hobbes"
We don't devote nearly enough scientific research to replacing tEmP theorists.
So long as every institution of today -- economic, political, social, and moral -- conspires to misdirect human energy into wrong channels; so long as most people are out of place doing the things they hate to do, living a life they loathe to live, crime will be inevitable, and all the laws on the statutes can only increase, but never do away with, crime.
- Emma Goldman
No one cuts governmental regulations like the Republicans.
Democrats just throw up their hands with "There's nothing we can do about it!"
The one thing people cannot bear is a sense of injustice.
Poverty, cold, even hunger, are more bearable than injustice.
- Millicent Fenwick
Yet we are lied to non-stop by the 1%.
All that is needed to change life dramatically is to find a way to counter their lies.
I've started with physics.
We live in a country that is addicted to incarceration as a tool for social control. As it stands now, justice systems are extremely expensive, do not rehabilitate but in fact make the people that experience them worse, and have no evidence-based correlatives to reducing crime. Yet with that track record they continue to thrive. Only an addict would see that as an OK result.
- James Bell
Or a eugenics-minded 1%er obsessed with crushing the 99%.
Crazy is as crazy does.
An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.
- Victor Hugo
It is not all that hard to resist a good idea.
All it takes is lots of money, and people in key positions of power.
Bought and controlled with more money.
tEmP theories are bought and controlled nonsense.
tEmP theories are bought and controlled nonsense.
tEmP theories are bought and controlled nonsense.
You shall judge of a man by his foes as well as by his friends.
- Joseph Conrad (1857-1924)
May I have the most powerful and nasty foes.
Our whole American way of life is a great war of ideas, and librarians are the arms dealers selling weapons to both sides.
- James Quinn
*Should* life be a *war* of ideas?
No, of course not.
Clearly there is money to be made in conflict.
When you can do the common things of life in an uncommon way
you will command the attention of the world.
- George Washington Carver (1864-1943)
Unless a lot of money is at stake.
The lyfe so short, the crafte so long to learn.
- Geoffrey Chaucer
No wonder we live in a controlled world.
It is the default, actually.
Mom does it for us at first.
Eventually we have to be able to stand alone.
Spring-And-Loop Theory is stand alone physics.
I need someone to protect me from all the measures they take in order to protect me.
- Banksy (1974-)
As someone smarter than me pointed out, Banksy always has leftist messages.
You can protect yourself, Banksy.
The nature of all reality is spiritual. Not material nor a dualism of matter and spirit. I contemplate a spiritual domain underlying the physical world.
- Arthur Eddington
A well-buried philosophical quote by Mr. Eddington.
The 1% don't want this getting out, as it would obligate them to be wise, and generous.
Ever met a wise liar?
Our puny sentimentalism has caused us to forget that a human life is sacred only when it may be of some use to itself and to the world.
- Helen Adams Keller (1880-1968),
"The Black Stork: Eugenics And The Death Of 'Defective' Babies In America"
Things have gone far beyond the death of 'defective' babies.
Today we are all systematically assaulted.
Roundup is sold by the gallon at Costco!
Vaccine poisoning is mandatory in some states.
Toxic fluoride is forced into the water of 75% of Americans.
Kids born to chemo survivors are increasingly infertile, having 72% fewer children.
Exactly what they want.
Mice exposed to wireless radiation -- i.e. microwaves, Wi-Fi, cell phones, cell towers, baby monitors -- are sterile by the third generation.
The system is broken.
So that you are meant to fail.
And, in failing, provide profit to the 1%.
If you don't like this, you must embrace CHANGE.
Kevin Shipp - The Shadow Government
There can be no expertise in innovation unless there is also expertise in demolishing the ensconced.
- Kevin Kelly (1952-)
I've done my part in demolishing tEmP theories.
Please share my work.
That way we will crush them together.
The Sickness Of The 1%
- Jesse Ventura, Off The Grid
I'm using myself as a typical 20th century model as I'm trying to make sense out of the world around me -- typical in the sense of being one of the darn good models around these days. I am typical in the sense that a lot of people are on the same wavelength as me. I get fan mail from people that are absolutely stunned that there's somebody else besides themselves who thinks this way. So, we're a minority, but there are a lot of us. On a planet this overcrowded, a minority can have a few million numbers. More scientific than religious. More open than dogmatic. More optimistic than pessimistic. More future oriented than past oriented. And more humorous than serious. I really dread serious people. Especially serious, dogmatic people. I regard them as sort of what Reich called the emotional plague. I regard them as very dangerous.
- Robert Anton Wilson (1932-)
Both humorous and serious are needed.
No need to prefer one to the other.
And no need to say your "dread...serious, dogmatic people".
Dogmatic people are the problem. Period.
The worst that can happen under monarchy is rule by a single imbecile, but democracy often means the rule by an assembly of three or four hundred imbeciles.
- Robert Anton Wilson (1932-)
Today we are controlled by 75,000,000 obsessed "fools".
In any case, each of these is bad.
Nothing is gained by saying you prefer one to the other.
You simply cannot invent any conspiracy theory so ridiculous and obviously satirical that some people somewhere don't already believe it.
- Robert Anton Wilson (1932-),
"Everything Is Under Control: Conspiracies, Cults And Cover-Ups"
Similarly, no matter how rational, obvious and provable a conspiracy fact is, there will always be some people who scoff at the "theory".
There is one grand lie: that we are limited.
The only limits we have are the limits we believe.
- Wayne Walter Dyer (1940-2015)
The 1% constantly tell the 99% they are limited.
They also demonstrate it with an ever-increasing list of hammer blows -- new laws, new poisons, new costs.
Yet the 99% have the biggest advantage in this battle.
Actually two of them. Truth and numbers.
Two would actually do it -- two magic words that could replace all the religions in the world. Two wonderful words that embrace all the powers and energy we need to survive with each other and with our planet and with all the world's living creatures. "Don't hurt".
- Roger Caras
But there is no money in "Don't hurt".
You and I are fine with it. The 1% are not.
The 1% are addicted to their power and control. In their insane minds they must be in control no matter what. We are zeroes to them. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
To be clever enough to get a great deal of money, one must be stupid enough to want it.
- George Bernard Shaw
And sick enough to not want to share it.
Back to the quote...
The man was far ahead of his time.
Or just simply timeless.
Vegetarians make better thinkers.
Don't be too clever for an audience.
Make it obvious.
Make the subtleties obvious also.
- Billy Wilder
More commonly we see:
Have an insulting attitude toward your audience.
Say whatever you want.
If success follows, you're part of the 1%.
The 1% play tennis with the net down. Or perhaps more accurately, with the net moved 20 feet toward them so that the area they need to cover is tiny, while the 99%er on the other side has an enormous area to cover. Oh, and they serve using a bazooka. And exploding tennis balls.
Imagine the lack of joy in cheating at everything you do.
In Washington, it's important to report exactly what every other reporter is reporting that day. It's tacky to be writing about the national debt or the unannounced invasion of a small country when everyone else is writing about a politician's love life.
- John Leo
This is why President Trump is such a great President.
He simply doesn't care who or how many are against him.
A true Iron man.
You can fool too many of the people too much of the time.
- James Thurber
Not really true.
More like, a small group with all the money and power can afford to lie on a continuous basis in all mediums for decades and even centuries.
Whoop dee doo. Who cares.
What matters is truth. And once that gets out, good luck trying to put that back in its bottle.
If you feed the people with revolutionary slogans they will listen today, they will listen tomorrow, they will listen the day after tomorrow, but on the fourth day they will say "To heck with you."
- Nikita Khrushchev
But by then you will have secured your position of power so it won't matter.
Back to the quote...
This is why they sell the sizzle. Today.
Then they sell that it "sounds good".
Then they sell that bacon is to die for (truer words were never spoken).
The packaging changes regularly.
The lies never change ever.
Think rich, look poor.
- Andy Warhol
Every 1%er's motto.
What acon artist.
All you need to be assured of success in this life is ignorance and confidence.
- Mark Twain
All you need to be given success by the 1% is irrelevance and degeneracy.
Every vice of the greedy has been repeated [in tEmP theories].
Inertia! Our ruling class knows one law; no change.
Despotism! They know one rule; force.
Maldistribution! They know one desire; to hold what is theirs.
- Isaac Asimov, "Foundation and Empire"
Intelligence is an accident of evolution, and not necessarily an advantage.
- Isaac Asimov
'Intelligence' has created the slavery of the 99% to the 1%.
Wisdom would produce opposite results.
Congratulations on the new library, because it isn't just a library. It is a space ship that will take you to the farthest reaches of the Universe, a time machine that will take you to the far past and the far future, a teacher that knows more than any human being, a friend that will amuse you and console you -- and most of all, a gateway, to a better and happier and more useful life.
- Isaac Asimov, letter to the Troy Public Library, 1971
Libraries, like everything else, are controlled.
And are thus dedicated to controlling.
(1) compare how many leftist political authors have their books carried by the library versus conservative political authors. Since when did the majority of the community give the library the right to be biased?
(2) donate a DVD or book that your library system doesn't have by putting it in the RETURN slot. Then look for it on the shelves a month (or a year) later.
It won't be there.
They DESTROY items submitted in this manner. At least out here on the left coast. Your leftists may vary.
All normal life, consciously or otherwise, resents domination. If the domination is by an inferior, or by a supposed inferior, the resentment becomes stronger.
- Isaac Asimov
There is no right to deny freedom to any object with a mind advanced enough to grasp the concept and desire the state.
- Isaac Asimov
The fact that everyone everywhere is denied freedom to any constructive object is all the proof we need that we now live in a fascist world.
Down with Soros.
Weak emperors mean strong viceroys.
- Isaac Asimov, "Foundation"
All those equity hires? Sheep controlled by the puppetmasters.
People who don't expect justice don't have to suffer disappointment.
- Isaac Asimov
I'll take some disappointment...
...with my victories.
It is not so much that I have confidence in scientists being right, but that I have so much in non-scientists being wrong.
- Isaac Asimov
But non-scientists pass the uncorruptibility test.
Physics today is totally corrupt.
Because it is more profitable to be wrong than to be right.
I'd take elementary school children over tEmP theorists.
Only a lie that wasn't ashamed of itself could possibly succeed.
- Isaac Asimov
No one is harder to shame than a 1%er.
Science is constructed out of approximations that gradually approach the truth. That means all theories are subject to constant testing and modification, doesn't it? And if it eventually turns out that they're not quite close enough to the truth, they need to be replaced by something that's closer. Right?
- Isaac Asimov
Asimov's tone is hinting at the real story -- that this doesn't happen.
If we look forward to a future in which mankind behaves rationally and avoids self-destruction, we can visualize a world that will be more complicated than the one we know today, but a world that will run better and, most of all, a world in which the individual will count for more, not less.
- Isaac Asimov, "The Roving Mind"
The 1% are fantastically irrational.
They actually think they can be happy while making 99% of the population miserably unhappy and even dead.
They are more easily understood when we just see them as they are -- crazy.
Humanity could share a common insanity and be immersed in a common illusion while living in a common chaos.
- Isaac Asimov, "Foundation's Edge"
Replace "could share" and "be" with "shares" and "is".
The City was the acme of efficiency, but it made demands of its inhabitants. It asked them to live in a tight routine and order their lives under a strict and scientific control.
- Isaac Asimov, "The Caves Of Steel"
We are being moved ever closer to this.
Only it will be an economic and mental straight jacket.
With the destruction of our social fabric, science will be broken into a million pieces. Individuals will know much of exceedingly tiny facets of what there is to know.
- Isaac Asimov, "Foundation"
Science, and especially tEmP theories, are a weapon in the hands of the 1%.
Mankind will suffer badly from the disease of boredom, a disease spreading more widely each year and growing in intensity. This will have serious mental, emotional and sociological consequences, and I dare say that psychiatry will be far and away the most important medical specialty in 2014. The lucky few who can be involved in creative work of any sort will be the true elite of mankind, for they alone will do more than serve a machine.
- Isaac Asimov, in 1964
Boredom: The most serious consequence of us all living in a controlled world.
Real change = exciting times.
Fake non-change = jaded sullen angry masses.
The destruction of what should not be, that is, of what you call evil, is less just and desirable than the conversion of this evil into what you call good.
- Isaac Asimov
Since the 1% have no interest in the 99%, disposal is cheaper.
As to the reverse action, there is room for tEmP theories within Spring-And-Loop Theory.
They need a renovation from the ground up, built on the right assumptions.
Once the right model and assumptions are in place, good things would happen pretty much by themselves.
People think of education as something that they can finish. And what's more, when they finish, it's a rite of passage. You're finished with school. You're no more a child, and therefore anything that reminds you of school -- reading books, having ideas, asking questions -- that's kid's stuff. Now you're an adult, you don't do that sort of thing any more...You have everybody looking forward to no longer learning, and you make them ashamed afterward of going back to learning...What's exciting is the actual process of broadening yourself, of knowing there's now a little extra facet of the universe you know about and can think about and can understand. It seems to me that when it's time to die, there would be a certain pleasure in thinking that you had utilized your life well, learned as much as you could, gathered in as much as possible of the universe, and enjoyed it. There's only this one universe and only this one lifetime to try to grasp it. And while it is inconceivable that anyone can grasp more than a tiny portion of it, at least you can do that much. What a tragedy just to pass through and get nothing out of it.
- Isaac Asimov
And what a crime when the 1% deliberately starves the 99% of knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
Any frontal attack on ignorance is bound to fail because the masses are always ready to defend their most precious possession: their ignorance.
- Hendrik Willem van Loon
After one hundred years going down the wrong road, tEmP theorists are unlikely to reverse course, as there is far too much $$$$$ at stake. The Q movement, however, has shown that average people are extremely capable of changing direction, when a better way forward is presented.
