Anti-matter is matter: An unfortunate term that is confounding the consciousness of astrophysicists…

Note: I classified this post under “Lucubration Today” category. The notion was Not generated in a dream, but you may read as the description of a dream story.

You have matter that our tools are designed to capture and measure. Like duality in philosophy, astrophysicists cannot view the universe standing right unless you find an opposite to anything, either matter or concept.

Since the scientists refrain from using spirit and soul in their scientific vocabulary, matter must have an anti-matter. And here comes the problem.

The scientists had to coin the term Anti-Matter, instead of counter matter, which must be a matter, but how to define it and characterize it in order to make sense?

Until the astrophysicists remember that anti-matter is matter, all the cosmology theories are heading to a wall.

Somehow, scientists must start figuring out an attribute to anti-matter so that they begin to figure out what to capture and how to measure anti-matter.

Here is a hypothesis:

If there was a Big bang, why assume that it was the one and only Big Bang?

Isn’t it more fruitful and rational to conceive of a universe that was created several time, within cyclical periods?

The theory is that after a Big bang, matter and anti-matter are created, and a battle of annihilation immediately start for dominion of a universe of matter or anti-matter.

Why not postulate that we have two parallel universes: Matter and anti-matter universes?

In our universe, matter annihilated anti-matter, and the reverse occurred in the anti-matter universe.

For example, the astrophysicists cannot yet fathom why our universe is expanding so quickly, at high acceleration.

They still cannot fathom where are all the majority of matter in our universe to account for their theories.

How about our universe of matter is converging toward the universe of anti-matter for another titanic battle?

Where could be the partition line of dominion?

Or is it a belt of Black Holes?

Most probably, our local Black Holes are the universes of anti-matters within our universe of matter.

The Black Hole of anti-matter attracts all the matters in its vicinity, until there are no more enough anti-matter and the Black Hole explodes into galaxies of matters.

Instead of conceiving our universe as the center, a habit inherited from centuries of considering ourselves as the center of the universe, it is logical to view the anti-matter as in the center (a belt of Black Holes, and our universe swirling around it and being captured by the anti-matter universe.

Consequently, our universe is expanding “inward” toward the belt of anti-matter Black Holes.

And, unless we start giving the anti-matter the remaining lacking mass in our universe, the cosmology theories will remain untenable.

Well, for our glue of boson giving mass to our matter, why not consider a counter boson to glue the anti-matter particles?

Let us postulate this:

Anti-matter is a mirror image of matter, enjoying all the physical characteristics of the matter universe.

One corny question to agree on: “Does the anti matter universe has anti-human species creatures?” But not as violent and cruel?

When to have great sex? Or How to have great sex?

I have posted many articles on sex and seduction: You might check the category “sex, seduction, love”. I stumbled on a link that is more of the inspirational kind than describing reality. You judge.

notesby.me posted this, titled “When to have great sex”

It goes: “In the animal world males respect females. At least when it comes to sex. Males wait until the female is in heat. She then gives them the signal. They approach. She picks one (or more of the males) And they have great sex (Would skip the great). All the other days of the year, males respect and wait.

Most human males aren’t as courteous. Some are. Males want sex all the time (not sure. Probably many females do).

Sure animal males want sex all the time too (not sure of that proposition, even male cats are not constantly engaged in that exercise) .

Yet, they don’t pressure the females. And believe it or not, although human females can have sex anytime, they too go into, and I’m carefully using the word, ‘heat’ for a few days a month.

Human females concede to the male a lot of times. Because they love the guy. Because they pity him. Because they’re afraid of the consequences. Because they don’t mind. Sure they’ll both have sex. It might feel like rape. It might suck. It might be ok. It might be good. But it won’t be great.

Male? Want great sex? Show some respect. Wait until she gives the signal. She’ll love you for it.

Female? Point your partner to this note. Twitter: @williamchoukeir” End of quote

My comments:

First, our close relatives the monkey-kinds do sex all the time, and many times per day, with many females in the tribes.  Many insects behave the same. Rats too…Is it because the females want sex more often than males?

It is not a matter of respect of the male mammals for the “second sex” that the males are perceived by men in animal documentaries. Males have comprehended that it is useless to force females into copulating…It is hard work chasing after, and receiving bad injuries by forcing the matter.  Large male animals have got to wait, be there all the time, showing urgency, and readiness to satisfy the partner as females are in heat…

Male animals are less agile than females, and they just like to strut and fake combativeness with competitive males…They have trees and other gentler males to do the thing…

Second, animals have not lost their powerful smell indicator: Mankind sense of smell has been deteriorating and they have to rely on their eyes and hearing to get it…Sex for male mankind is more in the brain than in the sensory urgency.

It is not when to have sex, but rather how to have great sex! Great sex in mankind is hard work, time consuming, plenty of foreplay, extremely expensive…And the male genders always pay the price for not understanding that “doing sex” is accepting slavery conditions…

Let us not romanticize the physical sex engagement…It is awfully exorbitant, if you are not mentally ready to pay the price.

Actually, having less than great sex is far more profitable in the long-range: Males can sample the females until he settles down on the one he wants to be her slave…her shadow, kissing the ground where she steps, her dog, her purse…

You want to institute a family with kids? Do it early on as your testosterone level is in the explosive range…

Marriage should be a contract with specific climaxing date, to be renewed if both couple agree for extending the family life…

Is it just a flea taunting and nagging at me?

This essay on fleas, flies, mosquitoes, flea-types of connotations, “flea-regret”,…was inspired by the post of notesby.me under “How opportunities flea

The post says:

“A flea just like the one above, kept bugging me all night. It was somewhere in my cloth, jumping around, biting on occasion.

After a long and painful night of searching and looking, I find it. Sitting there on my leg motionless. Finally! This is my opportunity to end this nightmare. I hesitate for just a moment.

If you know fleas, you’d know that they’re very elusive bugs. They don’t stay put for more than a fraction of a second. And when they jump… You may never spot them again. They’re gone.

In that moment of slight hesitation, the flea jumps.  I’m sure that at some point in your life, you’ve lost an opportunity you’ve long been waiting for. And I can bet that it’s more likely than not, that you’ve lost that opportunity by inaction. Take a minute now to remember that opportunity lost by inaction.

Next time you spot a golden opportunity, be quick. Don’t hesitate. Take immediate action. Don’t let the opportunity flee”.  End of quote, Twitter: @williamchouker

Fleas are tiny creatures, almost invisible. You cannot just take them by two fingers: You have got to use two sharp nails and hear “crush” before you assume that the flea is probably dead.  It is hard work and requires sharp vision, dexterity, patience…all the prerequisites lacking in older people…

You can watch flies when you eat meat outdoors (or indoor). Flies can be cajoled: Just leave them a dish of meat, treat them as guests, a collective guest, a cluster guest…

Mosquitoes are a different story: They much prefer fresh and hot blood, particularly your blood-type. You may take a few seconds to decide on killing the first one:  You quickly learn the first principle of dictators and absolute monarchs “kill with utmost prejudice, immediately”

The number One nemesis among the flea-types is “flea-regret“.  Flea-regret is immortal as long as you live.  It reincarnate newborn, exactly the same spectrum and gamut of regrets that you suffered in your limited life.  A few are more virulent: They are commun to all genders, cultures, civilization, work-types, colors, ethnicity, climatic regions…

It does not matter how dumb you are, you eventually learn the only two truths in life: Death and regrets.

The problem with the kinds of “flea-regret” is that the older you get the faster they procreate: You just keep committing the same kinds of regrets, and you are not the wiser.  You think that you cornered one regret and want to have a sensible conversation with it, but it is a flea and hop! It was just here and was replaced by a nastier “flea-regret”.

The “flea-regret” always sit on the front voluptuous seat and nag you, silently screaming: “And me; and me! I dare you to eliminate me” 

All you wanted is a rational discussion, but regret denies you this luxury, no matter how determined and tenacious you think you are.

Occasionally, I hear someone say: “I feel great. I have no regrets”, and I understand what he means: “I would feel great if I had no regrets”.  Others would say: “I managed to survive against all odds”, and I translate “I managed so far to ward off the onslaught of thousands of regrets. I was not talking of famine or accepting an undignified life…I survived my demons…” 

Another says: “I am under pressure. I feel down. I am kind of depressed…”, and I interpret “Regrets are constantly nagging at me.  Can’t shake-off the “I should have…”

Flea-regret? More accurately, virus-regret!

Note 1: Can you imagine million of soldiers cramped in ditches, and not able to take any decent shower for weeks?  Do you think this soldier has time to think about imminent death when he is constantly itching and fighting off the bites and diseases of all kinds of small creatures? 

More people die of diseases after soldiers return home than during the war, including “collateral civilian damages”.  Over 30 million died in the US and Europe after WWI from the flu epidemic and related diseases. How could any warrior leader claim that he won a victory overseas, when half his population will die of diseases as the warrior return home?

Note 2: William was worried that his concept of opportunity might be taken out of context.  You may read https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2011/10/01/since-when-had-a-knocking-opportunity-failed-you/

Why women live longer than men? Adapted to frequent bowel movement sessions

Women have far many more opportunities to trying bowel movements per day.

I discovered that humongous advantage a week ago. I decided, instead of standing for pissing, to simply sit.

It is a success story at every sitting: My bowel movement, with this new method, is smooth, creamy, of normal constituency, easy, and refreshing… No need anymore for exhausting your breath, bringing a magazine, allocating special time, fearing heart attack, a blood vein rupturing, taking enormous time and energy for this simple job.

It takes the same amount of time to doing two tasks in one session, and more efficiently at any length of term, short, medium, or long-term…

It is natural an event that comes naturally… Gone all these horror tales of gargantuan “product“, yards long, cross-sections as large as a newborn head, sewer system clogged…

Once, one of my nieces said: “If I don’t have three bowel movements a day, I don’t feel alright…” I wondered: “What?! If I can come once every two days I feel like a king and ecstatic…”

Managing a satisfying bowel movement was such a glorious event for me that I could feel the sensation many hours later: It was the actual real success story for the day!  If anyone would ask me: “What was your best memorable task today?” I had no hesitation being blunt and frank: “I had a bowel movement!”

Let us admit it: Constipation is a common ailment among the male genders, regardless of their eating habit: carnivorous, vegetarian, vegan, herbivorous… Actually, I cannot recall having a bowel movement in childhood.  How many of you male gender recall how was the toilet in your home in your childhood?  You certainly have a vivid picture of your favorite spot in the garden or the nearby forest…

Many would be surprised of my simple and bold hypothesis of “Why women live longer than men, are more enduring, cooler in their behavior…”

My conjecture is that the main reason, by far the most important of the many main causes, is opportunity for frequent bowel movements, just by having to stoop and sit… for pissing!  That is why I ticked the “lucubration” category.

Do you know that virulent bacteria and viruses normally converge toward the exit of the large intestine, and that the more frequent your bowel movements are, no matter how little is the “production”, is the best remedy for decreasing sickness frequency?

Chill out, sit down, and enjoy a normal enjoying day that would overcome many stupid and unnecessary tresses. Simultaneous multitasking should not be reserved for computer sciences…

Let me be frank: If I have a satisfying bowel movement in the morning,I feel that I own the day. Nothing can touch me for the day, and I feel confident that I will not feel sick for the day…

If I wait for the evening for a creamy and easy movement, it is difficult for me to go to sleep: I feel that I can go on for most of the night…

Do your best to Own your Day and your Health…

Note: I realized why men adopt lazy behaviors more frequently than women: Just deciding to sit for pissing is such a difficult undertaking to execute.  I am not referring to elder people finding it a problem to stooping or sitting on their buttocks, instead to standing and leaning on the wall with hands, but to youth who think that a standing position is a quicker maneuver to satisfying the urgent need for pissing.

Women acquired more stamina than men by simply having to stoop and sit for pissing

“Wish wilder than in a dream”: How fitting

Dream. Dreaming. Far out. A parallel life: Extravagant, detailed, passionate, creative, limitless in potential and capability…

Gravity?  How many fold heavier than earth you like it to be?

The ultimate in oppression, in feeling down to earth, in inertia… I get up and feel unable to reintegrate bed.

Have got to do anything but going back to this heavy dream.  For example, I am of the type of guys I shake hand with someone and used not to recall how he was dressed or fathom his character.  But in dreams, I see and meet hundreds of total strangers, and I am able to dress every one of them according to their character, and create multitude of facial features…Where all that creativity came from? Not from my conscious world.

Gravity? How many times lighter than earth do you like to feel it?

Feeling the air exercising the proper pressure under you wings, sliding, hovering over mountain tops, valley, speeding like crazy, feeling light, happy, full of expectation; climbing high walls, with bare hands, effortlessly, much faster than cats and lizards… Noises, morning clapping trying to get me out of my lovely dream, and I refuse to acknowledge that it is time to face the “real life”.

How do you dare claim that my dreaming period is not as real, is not the wonderful possible life, my life, my expectations, my power…?

Older people, hard of hearing, dim in the eyes, decrepit… Just hanging on to life, to the living, just to experience another dozing dream, another night dream…  Laying down on this “balcony of a bed“, a relaxing long chair, eyes closed, excited for a new story adventure, capabilities rejuvenated, limitations vanishing in thin air… All is possible, youth, a reincarnated life of what it should have been…

Hanging on to life to see the grandchildren and children?  Get real. 

Children make themselves scarce and you have been forgotten long time ago.  No, elder people grab to life for another dream story adventure:  The real life when the other stupid “real life” gave up on you, and turned you down, and trampled your dignity, smashed all your wishes and expectations…

Dream. Dreaming. Far out. A parallel life: Extravagant.  The real life. Got to agree, sooner or later, that dreaming is the true lullaby that your mother failed to sing to you, tacking you in bed…

Why everything, every adventure is possible in dreams, except falling in Love? 

This split-second realization that “This is it!”.  Maybe I never fell in love in order to dream it? What a pity.

Falling in love must be the concentration of a life experiences, observations, feelings, knowledge…What a pity!

Except falling in love, everything else is in the realm of dreaming, a much livelier, colorful, exciting alternative powerful life.

What a pity!

Questions, questions…Quit it! What do I know?!

At what moment eyes see?

“My new-born girl, my new-born grandchild taught me how seeing come to be.  The first few days, the new-born had vague vision.  The looking eyes focused on me, gradually acquire primitive thinking.  Suddenly, I recognize an elaborate thinking in the eyes:  The new-born is seeing me! The vision has a meaning now” (Medical professor Yves Pouliquen)

What is the power of beauty?

“Beauty has immense power of illumination:  It is a counter-poison to reality.  Beauty permits you to appreciate reality and to love living.  Beauty resides in the domain of the dreams, an invention of the mind, a mental construct to survive.  The two dreams of beauty and love are real since we are capable of dedicating our life to them.  Beauty necessarily contains a large portion of what we consider as truth”.  (Academician Jean-Marie Rouart)

Are we born a man?

“We are born female.  We are inducted into manhood by rituals and customs.  It is a harsh process of indoctrination” (Eric Zemmour)

Is writing a smile or a lament?

“Writing is our way of nodding agreement to what has taken place.  Writing is an approving prayer, a positive confirmation” (Author and politician Marc Lambron)

Is life a real product, a scenario, or a stage production?

“Life is remodeled and sculpted every day.  Life is revisited constantly:  the dialogue, the sequence…in the stage production are altered at each new location.  You change the location of the scene and the entire script acquires a different meaning, an alternative perspective on life” (Movie director Elie Chouraqui)

Does the past reserves surprises?

“It is mostly past recollections that extend surprises for the transformation of our stories.  Feelings are constantly metamorphosed:  What seemed like glorious best moments can become the worst events in our memory.” (Author Jean-Paul Einthoven)

Once we click on the camera the picture is already from the past.  If we could learn how to analyse still pictures and the emotions that transpire, our diaries and auto-biographies are enhanced in frankness and openness.

Why pictures in auto-biographies are of the happy moments among family and friends?

Are we trying to hide our real feelings from the intelligent readers?

Note:  Those quotes are extracted from the book “Two or three things I know about them…” by Sabine de Boustros and Loris Moutran

Who is this Lebanese? Who is the quirkiest specie of all?  Any rationale for society quirky behaviors?

Lebanon is the only State that kicked Israel occupation forces out of Lebanon without negotiation, or any preconditions.  And yet, you have got a bunch of Lebanese refusing to admit this fact.

Lebanon is the only State that defeated Israel in any war, specifically in 2006, and by the resistance forces, and Israel admitted its defeat.  And yet, you have got a bunch of Lebanese still very skeptical about this fact.

Worse, WikiLeaks published documents of what you cannot believe:  Pseudo Lebanese leaders begging the US and Israel to resume the war beyond 33 days, until Hezbollah is reduced politically and militarily. Why?  Because the political sectarian structure of Lebanon will eventually change.

No foreign armies, regional or not, have managed to occupy any portion of the land in Lebanon for any length of time.  And yet, you have a bunch of Lebanese pseudo-politicians and leaders, coaxing and begging foreign States to come in and occupy Lebanon; only to quickly change their decisions and turn against the occupying forces.

The State of Lebanon acquired such renown in instability and irrationality that no State is about to enter Lebanon or actively meddle in its internal affairs for any length of time.  And yet, you have a bunch of faked Lebanese leaders constantly roaming earth to get in contact with any stupid interlocutor, mediator… who has no idea where Lebanon is located and what this weird Lebanese is talking about.

The bored Lebanese faked politicians want to  snatch any kind of recognition, while foreign politicians are running away from this unwelcomed quirk intruder:  The foreign politician is screaming: “Get away from me.  I have a handful of problem to resolve.  I am in no mood to untangle a truckload of your impossible problems.”

We had a civil war that lasted 17 years (1975-1992) and we ended up with 20 versions of what caused the war

18 versions corresponding to the 18 recognized religious sects and two versions for the two secular political parties, mainly the Communist and the Lebanese-based Syria National Social Party.

Worse, after the civil war officially ended with no victors, every war-lord was appointed deputy in the Parliament and offered a ministerial portfolio, as a recompense for a job well done.

These war-lords as still in the government and their extended family members are deputies.  Not a single war-lord apologized for any wrong doing:  Every year, each war-lord celebrates His “Fallen martyrs“, and the government (President, PM, and Chairman of the Parliament) send their official representatives to the ceremony.

We don’t even know an adequate approximate numbers of the dead, the injured, and the disappeared.  You hear that 200,000 died (more than 15% of the population).  With such number of dead casualties, it is normal to estimate that 600,000 were injured.   Not a single war-lord dared give location of the mass graves in his “canton“.

What is this “let bygone be bygone?”  The same war-lords issued a law in the Parliament for amnesty to all criminals!

For example, there are over 70,000 Lebanese living in Ivory Coast and making a living.  Ivory Coast has been in trouble for over three years now, and the latest election took place a year ago.  We all knew that eventually the civil war will escalate.  Many Lebanese returned for vacation and then returned to their work in Ivory Coast.

You are wondering: “Why this Lebanese didn’t decide to return to Lebanon for good?”

And the answer is basic: “What can they do and work in this non-State of Lebanon?”  Whatever enterprises that already exist are monopolized by elite classes of merchants, feudal lords, new real estates developers, and their extended clan and family members of these well-established oligarchy.

Any Lebanese returning home has to start from scratch and be ready to lick asses in order to have any facility to open an enterprise.

Ask any Lebanese who returned whether he managed to start a business in this non-State of Lebanon!  The Lebanese immigrants are willing to take dangerous choices instead of contemplating a stupid return to Lebanon.

Every generation demonstrated massively for reforms of this archaic political and social system, and failed miserably:  Every generation saw The System creating a civil war to delude any worthy reforms .

The current new generation has been at it, consistently and with more determination.

The youth is demanding the Impossible:  The youth want to earn a citizenship!

The youth want to know that they have erected a State that represents their identity and their dreams for a sustainable Lebanon.

Free!  Working 12 hours a day: Not Earning a dime

Estimates are that over 3 billion people are surviving on less than$2 a day.  So far, I have been living with not a dime in my pocket for an entire year. I work 12 hours a day and not earning a dime; with a twist:  I am “enjoying ” free board and lodging by an implicit contract drawn by me.

I lived for 20 years in the USA and received the highest academic diplomas, and worked on most minimum wage jobs, before and after graduation:  I had to survive in a society where I had no community support for proper introduction and references.  

I returned to Lebanon in 2000, before the 9/11/2001 attack on the Twin Towers, and felt glad to be away from a climate where “Arab”-looking individuals were subjugated to many kinds of humiliations, indignities, and increased covert restrictions and discrimination.

I have been living with my elderly parents ever since.  It is a gradual process:  They were old but still functional.  I could go on with a normal life-style and not having to deal with daily chores, like house maintenance, cleaning, vacuuming, washing dishes…

It was a gradual process:  My folks got steadily older as I felt I was getting there too.  Gradually but steadily, I had to come to the rescue:  First, you are asked to handle physical tasks that the folks can no longer do; then, the varieties of tasks increase into other kinds of skills and capabilities.

It is not just a matter of cleaning once room.  Actually, since I arrived from the USA, I fought off my mother from rearranging my room, closets, washing the curtains, re-hanging curtains, getting accustomed to the newer locations of my personal belonging…

I had volunteered to wash the dishes but was kicked out of the kitchen…I was relegated to driving my folks around, visiting relatives, health check-ups, buying a dozen of medicines, paying the bills of the phone (no modern facilities to sending checks)…

I had to take care of a garden, plowing, planting, gathering, watering (no water in the 7-month dry season and we have to purchase truckloads of water…)  

I ended up taking care of the chicken, a number that grew to over a hundred, buy chicken feed, vitamins, medicines for the chicken, bartering eggs for meat and other stuff, collect dead chickens (mauled and eaten by other chicken, rats… ), wear special clothes in the downpours and stepping in mud, dirt, just to satisfy the well-being of chicken… 

The funny part is when I decided to sell all the fowls and was surprised to facing an uprising on my hands:  They wanted the fowls around.  No one would even contribute to the expense of the ever costly feed or even help feeding and cleaning the chicken “quarters”.

It is not just a matter of cleaning once room. I ended up feeding the cats, the dogs, search the supermarkets for leftover meat for the animals (they are not even house pets).  The vegetarian members of the extended family refuse to bring in leftover meat for the pets and refuse to take care feeding the pets…

It is not just a matter of cleaning once room.  Mother’s arthritis ailments worsened and I had to hang cloths to dry, wash dishes, mop the floors, vacuum the carpets, cut tough vegetables, press the lemon…

It is not just a matter of cleaning once room.  It is no longer carrying the gas “bonbons” for cooking, the filtered water Jeri cans, climbing ladders to fetch objects…  I am the household care taker, but mother insists on cooking and doing a few chores when she feels a little better in the morning:  She feels worse when she does not contribute in the house work:  She has got to work, like men have to leave the house to “work” and be out of the “skirts”.

Personally engaging in the daily chores gives the correct perspective to what living is:  Washing the dishes, mopping the floor, doing laundry, tending the garden…Running away to work as excuse to avoiding doing house chores, and learning what it takes to get life going is a sure sign of unhappiness and non satisfaction, later on in life.

How can we appreciate life and improve our potentials if we refuse to face life’s exigencies of constant maintenance every day?  We are necessarily meditating as we participate in daily chores: a reminder for humility and missed potentials.

I disagree with regimentation for meditation of apprentices in temples.  They wake up early morning before sun rises.  Before breakfast, they clean completely their residence:  They tidy and dust rooms, hallway and garden, and even mop the floor,  everyday no matter what.  They take time to do these chores casually, serenely, not in a hurry.

They cook breakfast for everybody and  completely clean the kitchen before they start meditation, study and excise. Of course afternoon is similar.  They don’t drink alcohol, caffeine, or smoke cigarettes.  They are supposedly doing only things good for their minds.  They follow strictly their daily schedule for many years in order to taming “each negative egos” to get permission to advancing to next levels? I don’t know.

I agree that to do everyday basic daily tasks (clean-up…) is very important to cleansing our minds each day. Each day the mind is refreshed by the action of cleaning and cleansing.  I cannot agree that the purpose of living is simply doing the daily chores:  We have natural rights to enjoy life; we have natural passions that need to be satisfied.

The hell with regimentation if it must enslave me for years in order to satisfy the “master’s” view or opinion of how life should be lived, and what we should do every day.  Learn and then find your own way: It shouldn’t take so many years to discover your passions and act upon them:  Just get on doing and acting.

There are chores for the morning; chores for the afternoon; and chores for the evening.  There are times for learning, reading, studying, writing, publishing, earning a living, and meditation.  You don’t want to reach old age before you realize that all these “levels for perfection” are a string of falsehoods.

There is this whole world to discover, people to listen to, to discuss with, to change your ideas and perspectives on life and nature.  You don’t need to be confined in a place, a method, a way of life to learn and improve yourself and find joy, satisfaction, and happiness. 

You don’t want to reach old age before you realize that all these “levels for perfection” were initiation to slavery habits, of restricting the potentials of your mind, and futile constraints on your vital natural rights.

I work 14 hrs a day, everyday, rain or shine, official working day and holidays.  Besides my long list of daily chores I read, write, and publish everyday, rain or shine… I love to contribute extending tribute to the hard-working people in all domain of life, culture, and knowledge.

I work 14 hrs a day: Earning not a nickel.  I paint the windows, doors, and walls: Earning not a nickel.  I do the glass windows: Earning not a nickel. Am I working?  Is what I am doing kind of working? Should I be earning some kind of money to say: “I have a job.  I am working hard”?

I read and hear young people, having a job or jobless, experiencing depressed mood swing:  They work on shortening the depression and anxiety periods by changing habits (food varieties, sleep periods, exercise periods…).  I don’t feel depressed:  I learned what makes me happy and what gives me joy.

As long as I have a book handy, I am as “happy as happy can be”:  All books are interesting and I mine gems from even the lousiest of books. As long as there are documentaries and fine movies, I am happy and discover plenty of topics to critique and relay the news to others via by blog.

I work 14 hrs a day and earning not a single nickel, but I don’t get sick as I used to, when I worked on lousy jobs for companies in return for lousy money.  I paid my dues to society and have nothing to prove. I am healthy, alert, and happy ironing out my views on life and the universe.

One thing we know is that life reinforces the hypothesis that the world is infinitely complex and most of its phenomena will remain incomprehensible, meaning unexplained.  For example, no theory of life evolution was able to predict the next phase in evolution and the route taken to the next phase.  We don’t know if laws in biology will exist in the same meaning of laws of physics or natural phenomena.

For example, is the universe simple or complex, finite or infinite? The mathematician Chaitin answered: “This question will remain without any resolution, simply because we need an external observer outside our system of reference, preferably non-human, to corroborate our theoretical perception.”  (A few of my readers will say: “This smack of philosophy” and they hate philosophy or the rational logic deducted from reduced propositions that cannot rationally be proven)

So many scholars wanted to believe that “God does not play dice” (Einstein) or that chaos is within the predictive laws of God and nature (Leibniz), or that the universe can be explained by simple, restricted set of axioms, non-redundant rules (Stephen Hawking).

Modern mathematical theories and physical observations are demonstrating that most phenomena are basically behaving haphazardly.  For example, quantum physics reveals that hazard is the fundamental principle in the universe of the very tiny particles:  Individual behaviors of small particles in the atomic nucleus are unpredictable; thus, there is no way of measuring accurately speed, location, and direction of a particle simultaneously; all that physics can do is assigning probability numbers.

Apparently, hazard plays a role even in mathematics.  For example, many mathematical “true” statesmans cannot be demonstrated, they are logically irreducible and incomprehensible.  Mathematicians know that there exists an infinity of “twin” prime numbers (odd number followed by even number) but this knowledge cannot be proven mathematically. Thus, many mathematicians would suggest to add these true “propositions” but non demonstrable theories to the basic set of axioms.  Axioms are a set of the bare minimum of “given propositions” that we think we know to be true, but the reason is unable to approach them adequately, using the logical processes.

Einstein said: “What is amazing is that the eternally incomprehensible in nature is comprehensible”; meaning that we always think that we can extend an explanation to a phenomenon without being able to proving its working behaviors.  Einstein wrote that to comprehend means to rationally explain by compressing the basic axioms so that our mind can understand the facts; even if we are never sure how the phenomenon behaves.

For example, Platon said that the universe is comprehensible simply because it looks structured by the beauty of geometric constructs, the regularity of the tonality in string instruments, and steady movement of planets… Steven Weinberg admits that “If we manage to explain the universal phenomenon of nature it will not be feasible by just simple laws.”

Many facts can be comprehended when they are explained by a restricted set of theoretical affirmations:  This is called the Occam Razor theory which says: “The best theory or explanation is the simplest.”  The mathematician Herman Weyl explained: “We first need to confirm that nature is regulated by simple mathematical laws.  Then, the fundamental relationships become simpler the further we fine-tune the elements, and the better the explication of facts is more exact.”

So what is theory?  Informatics extended another perspective for defining theory: “a theory is a computer program designed to taking account of observed facts by computation.  Thus, the program is designed to predict observations.  If we say that we comprehend a phenomenon then, we should be able to program its behavior.  The smaller the program (more elegant) the better the theory is comprehended.”

When we say “I can explain” we mean that “I compressed a complex phenomenon into simple programs that “I can comprehend”, that human mind can comprehend.  Basically, explaining and comprehending is of an anthropic nature, within the dimension of human mental capabilities.

The father of information theory, John von Neumann wrote: “Theoretical physics mainly categorizes phenomena and tries to find links among the categories; it does not explain phenomena.”

In 1931, mathematician Kurt Godel adopted a mental operation consisting of indexing lists of all kinds of assertions.  His formal mathematical method demonstrated that there are true propositions that cannot be demonstrated, called “logically incomplete problems”  The significance of Godel’s theory is that it is impossible to account for elemental arithmetic operations (addition or multiplication) by reducing its results from a few basic axioms.  With any given set of logical rules, except for the most simple, there will always be statements that are undecidable, meaning that they cannot be proven or disproven due to the inevitable self-reference nature of any logical systems.

The theorem indicates that there is no grand mathematical system capable of proving or disproving all statements.  An undecidable statement can be thought of as a mathematical form of a statement like “What I just said is a lie”:  The statement makes reference to the language being used to describe it, it cannot be known whether the statement is true or not. However, an undecidable statement does not need to be explicitly self-reference to be undecidable. The main conclusion of Gödel’s incompleteness theorems is that all logical systems will have statements that cannot be proven or disproven; therefore, all logical systems must be “incomplete.”

The philosophical implications of these theorems are widespread. The set suggests that in physics, a “theory of everything” may be impossible, as no set of rules can explain every possible event or outcome. It also indicates that logically, “proof” is a weaker concept than “true”.  Such a concept is unsettling for scientists because it means there will always be things that, despite being true, cannot be proven to be true. Since this set of theorems also applies to computers, it also means that our own minds are incomplete and that there are some ideas we can never know, including whether our own minds are consistent (i.e. our reasoning contains no incorrect contradictions).

The second of Gödel’s incompleteness theorems states that no consistent system can prove its own consistency, meaning that no sane mind can prove its own sanity. Also, since that same law states that any system able to prove its consistency to itself must be inconsistent, any mind that believes it can prove its own sanity is, therefore, insane.

Alan Turing used a deeper twist to Godel’s results.  In 1936, Turing indexed lists of programs designed to compute real numbers from zero to 1 (think probability real numbers).  Turing demonstrated mathematically that no infallible computational procedures (algorithms) exist that permit to deciding whether a mathematical theorem is true or false.  In a sense, there can be no algorithm able to know if a computer program will even stop.  Consequently, no computer program can predict that another program will ever stop computing.  All that can be done is allocating a probability number that the program might stop.  Thus, you can play around with all kinds of axioms, but no sets can deduce that a program will end.  Turing proved the existence of non computable numbers.

Note 1: Chaitin considered the set of all possible programs; he played dice for each bit in the program (0 or 1, true or false) and allocated a probability number for each program that it might end.  The probability that a program will end in a finite number of steps is called Omega.  The succession of numbers comprising Omega are haphazard and thus, no simple set of axioms can deduce the exact number.  Thus, while Omega is defined mathematically, the succession of the numbers in Omega has absolutely no structure.  For example we can write algorithm to computing Pi but never for Omega.

Note 2:  Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) tried to rediscover the founding blocks of mathematics “the royal highway to truth”  He was disappointed and wrote: “Mathematics is infected of non proven postulates and infested with cyclic definitions.  The beauty and the terror of mathematics is that a proof must be found; even if it proves that a theory cannot e be proven”

Note 3:  The French mathematician Poincaré got a price for supposedly having discovered chaos.  The article was officially published when Poincaré realized that he made a serious error that disproved his original contention.  Poincaré had to pay for all the published articles and for destroying them.  A single copy was saved and found at the Mittag-Leffler Institute in Stockholm.

If you are the type to sweating profusely at exam time, your heart beating at top speed, your hands sweaty, and feeling pretty light-headed and forgot everything you studied and learned then, you are an original of mankind specie.

Do you know that all these symptoms is basically to draw all the blood to your lower limbs so that you maybe able to run and flee at top speed without thinking back?  Wet hands are far more efficient for climbing trees:  You don’t want to slip and be eaten by a carnivorous animal.

We know, deep down, at exam time and during critical meeting (private or public) that something is not normal and does not match our psychological constitution, but we have no idea what is the real danger.  We have been conditioned to sit for exams and be interrogated and investigated during interviews that we forgot why we are so afraid and feel the real need to flee as quickly as possible.

Fact is, we our primitive intuition is intact to a normal degree and we didn’t lose it; we just are conditioned to think twice before running from dangers.  Fact is, all these exams and interviews are not meant to educate us but to humiliate us consistently so that we accept the role of obedient and mindless technocrats devoid of ethical and moral considerations toward the pain and suffering of common people.

The 10% in the population hoarding 50% of the wealth in the nation want a system that conditioned educated people to bow heads and feel terrified when hired to doing a job.  All these exams and periodic evaluation reviews are fundamentally meant to be ready to satisfying schedules of plans, study, and work-in-progress as “management” had decided without your feedback for feasibility.  You are trained not to think about the health, safety, and long-term benefit of any project:  You are to learn to becoming a human robot.

We all feel since childhood, as we are forced to go to school, that something is not right and a devilish system is moulding us to becoming something unnatural and inhuman.   We certainly prefer to have extended vacations, to working in jobs we like to do, to have quality time for our family and kids, to meet with our community and discuss our difficulties.  We have desires for so many interesting things but we feel in a big prison and having no choices but to following instructions, law, order, and peer pressures to be part of the group behavior.

Our primitive instinct is pretty intact and we feel in our guts that human carnivores are raising us as cattle for the slaughter as we grow older and under performing according to youth standards. Mankind is scared from his own kind and is loathing any kind of man-made system designed to increase law and order schemes.

There is no shame to getting angry and voicing your opinion high and strong when you feel afraid and in dire danger.  All indicate from political structures that 20% of the population are designed to stay in the lowest classes to serve as cheap hand laborers; and 70% are designed to becoming mindless technocrats for the benefit and comfort of the upper 10% of the population.  Has mankind lost his dignity investing time in serious reflection to his conditions, finding alternatives to regaining his freedom for whatever he desires of his life, and get moving accordingly?

Note:  Multinational corporations have increased their “own specialized university facilities” to 4,000 in one decade.  The traditional universities are meant for endoctrination of the new potential technocrats but company universities are meant to teaching particular skills that traditional universities have “forgotten” to focus on.  Company universities are far more sophisticated and equipped than any traditional university and millions are poured in to educated specialized employees.
