* Hypersigmanometry*?

How all the above terms** describe the creation of life**?

**Note**: Just increasing the dose of **complexity**? Never mind, it could be fun, in the long term.

*This article was originally published on ResearchGate*.

Further explanation in my future new book,Â *The Singularity of Electromagnetics â Early Fundamentals of Beaucalus*.

Iâve published about it on **ResearchGate** (here), and Iâm using this Medium article to explain the concept ofÂ * hydrophilia forceÂ *and other –

Letâs first think ofÂ *hydrophilia*Â that means

“we subtract mass from the force (*hydrophilia constant*) of the âł of 777 moles of H2O (6998.78088) divided by the âł_{h2o} (16.12603206), all of that divided by the root-division of âł_{h2o} from âŻ_{cÂČ joule}, equals 38.56324325 Newtons.”

Follow theÂ * Hypersigmanometry*Â below.

**OurÂ hydrophilic forceÂ is 38.56324325 Newtons.**

We postulate that losing two Oxygen atoms (by mass) results in the *hydrophilia*, and when we try to describe what *hydrophilia *means, we can form Calculus symbols, as following:

The proof above suggest that *hydrophilia* is an m-sigma relationship. Wikipedia says (about m-sigma),

âTheÂ

MâsigmaÂ (orÂ)ÂMâÏrelationÂ is an empirical correlation between the stellarÂ velocity dispersionÂÏÂ of aÂ galaxyÂ bulgeÂ and the mass M of theÂ supermassive black holeÂ at its center.TheÂ

MâÏÂ relation was first presented in 1999 during a conference at theÂ Institut dâastrophysique de ParisÂ inÂ France.The proposed form of the relation, which was called the

âFaberâJackson law for black holesââ

The m-sigma relationship to velocity dispersion agrees withÂ my other theory about relative space, and no time or time as a constant.

The m-sigma relationship in that race to âXâ [from the last linked article] shows a dispersion in velocity.

But further interpretation says that theÂ *hydrophilia*, as derived by subtracting m from F (in F=ma), formsÂ *hydrophiliaÂ *as a **deceleration subtraction**.

This is all in the case ofÂ *hydrophilic forces đ*.

At our current period, we form atomic based upon the Carbon atom; for instance, if we lose ourÂ *hydrophiliaÂ *(from 2 Oxygens reducing), losing water, **weâd transmute into Boron** (as below).

We can also investigate into the formation of our **mitochondrial DNA,** as below:

From here, we get a good **frequency number, 12.1225465**; where the 12 whole units may be represented by one Carbon atom, and the remainder of 0.1225465 may be represented as a **distributed frequency** of*Â Hydrogenic*Â atomics, or inÂ *helio-tomics*, [12.1225465] / [3âą1.00794] = 4.009017236 He [amu].

As when taking 0.1225465 and dividing it by 1.00794, it stays 0.12 for aÂ ** carabobaÂ cycle** (three-turns/division-cycles) so that magnifying it by one resolute octave, we form a whole other Carbon atom,

In any case, the above Calculus should be a good formula for the formation of our **cellular work-engine**, the mitochondria.

That is, it should be described as a process which births mitochondrial DNA from two slightly **differentiated dipolar clocks of water molecule**s, drying up, oxidizing â losing one hydrogen atom; and this, is the formula for the birth of our mitochondrial genes.

Of course, it is best that I am thorough with the understanding ofÂ *hydrogenics,Â *and the formulae, that I hope to move forth in-with this writing; that is, we should also be interpreting theÂ *hydrophilia*Â of two Carbon atoms fusing molecular structures.

That follows by, taking theÂ *hydrophilic constant*, then subtracting two Carbon atoms (as similar to what we performed with Oxygen, earlier), which equals: 14.54124325 â giving us theÂ *hydrophilia of (2C:H1872629/1000)Â *of two Carbon atoms.

With thisÂ *hydrophilia of 2C:H1872629/1000 (*14.54124325), letâs mathematically simulate how that hydrophilia forms mitochondrial DNA (C1H6) [with the following Calculus below].

We get a 99.32590396% scientific significance for ourÂ *hydrophilia forceÂ *calculations.

But with better clarity, we start by taking theÂ *hydrophilic 2C:H1872629/1000 hydrophiliaÂ *of 14.54124325 and divide it by 6 hydrogen atoms [from C1H6], run that process of division through the magnitude of our Dewey decimal number scale, then findÂ *Carbon-affinity (carbophilia)Â *by denominating the result from the [14.54124325 âą 10] / [6 âą 1.00794] by 12.011, giving us a:Â *2 Î±-particles 1872629 milli-ÎČ particles*, a hydrocarbon-affinity of: C2H0.001872629.

The last bit of exponential Calculus is how we determined our **scientific significance for ourÂ hydrophilia đ force calculations.**

Furthering theÂ *Beaucalus*Â discoveries ofÂ *hydrophilia*Â *đ*Â with **natural nitrogen**, forming ammonia and o-zone pollution, we can use the belowÂ *Beaucalus*Â to predict annihilations of anti-Oxygen and Oxygen atoms â synchronized fusions, as part of aÂ *hydrophilic 2N:6H*Â *hydrophila*, where the remainingÂ *hydrophilia*Â may form an 6-sided atom, as in Carbon, and form frequency wavelengths ofÂ *carbo-philia âÂ *in the suspension/separation of natural nitrogen from three natural hydrogen atoms, undoing **ammonia**;

we may form.

May we extend our *hydrophilia đ force *model to more complex chemical compositions like insulin (C257H383N65O77S6)? We can try. Letâs start by trying to figure out what sort of *hydrophilia *the hydrogen atoms and the oxygen atoms in the chemical formula for insulin possesses (below):

Then, letâs multiply our F*đH383O77+ hydrophilia force* with each of the remaining atomic arrangements (in insulin): C257, N65, and S6, as below.

The last line is a contrasting square root operation of the sulfuric 6S:*H4+ hydrophiliaÂ *(in insulin) [-182.2760322] after 3076.629932 angles of division, starting with Carbon absorption, and denominating that Carbon absorption by 900.3181322 angles of nitrogen division(s).

The result suggests a good approximation for*Â hydrophilia*Â **in insulin** (since it is close to 1.0).

My hypothesis is that it **explains subatomic nuclear forces**.

AsÂ *hydrophiliaÂ *refers to a particleâs **dependence upon water**; andÂ *hydrophilic đ forcesÂ *are what carries theÂ *hydrophiliaÂ *through **energy conversion byÂ General Relativity**Â â that is, that the curvature of the space fabric, leads to a force being formed â

Mathematics lovers say that the shorter the text of a problem or theorem and the longer its solution or proof, the more beautiful is that problem or theorem.

Philosophers and historians of mathematics say that the longer a theorem stays unproved (as a **conjecture**), the more important it becomes for the development of mathematics and for the inquiry into the nature and foundation of mathematics.

The history of mathematics proves that they were right in this respect.

Struggling to solve the conjectures for decades and even for centuries or millennia since their statement, mathematicians were **urged to link existing mathematical theories of different natures, structures, and languages, **and even to create new theories of a higher complexity than that within which the conjecture was stated.

With the addition of new links, structures, conceptual frameworks, and content, they contributed to the increase in applicability of mathematics within itself and also in the sciences.

In the current list, we have 10 conjectures that were stated in terms of basic mathematics â that is, within **basic algebra, number theory, Euclidian geometry, and elementary geometrical topology** â which awaited their proof for more than two decades.

10. **The Abel-Ruffini theorem (25 years to prove)**

Also known as Abelâs **impossibility theorem, **it states that there is no general algebraic solution (that is, **solution in radicals**) to the **general polynomial equations of degree 5 or higher**.

The conjecture originates in 1799 in the work of **C. F. Gauss**, and the first attempt to solve it belongs to **Paolo Ruffini** in the same year.

However, Ruffiniâs solution was not convincing for the great mathematicians of the period (including A. L. **Cauchy**), because of an **incompleteness regarding the definitions of the radicals used**.

N. H. Abel is credited as the solver of the conjecture in 1824.

The proof was based on some results of the **Galois theory**; however this theory was not yet crystallized at the time of that proof.

A few years after that, with the co-authorship of **J. Liouville, **the theory of Galois was published and recognized as bringing great discoveries in the theory of equations.

In 1963,** V. Arnold** provided a **topological proof **of the Abel-Ruffini theorem which established the basis of the **Topological Galois Theory**.

9.** Hilbertâs 17th problem (27 years to prove)**

Hilbert asked within his famous list of capital problems of mathematics in 1900: Given a multivariable **polynomial that takes only non-negative values over the reals,** can that polynomial be represented as a sum of squares of rational functions?

The problem originated in the defense of the doctoral thesis of **H. Minkowski in 1885,** who expressed the opinion that there exist real polynomials which are nonnegative on the** whole R^ n **and cannot be written as finite sums of squares of real polynomials.

Hilbert solved the particular case of *n* = 2 in 1893, and the general problem was solved in the affirmative by** E. Artin in 1927**, using the Artin-Schreier theory of **ordered fields**, with applications in algebraic group theory and model theory.

8.** Hilbertâs 7th problem (34 years to prove)**

Hilbert asked the following equivalent questions within the same list from 1900:

a) In an **isosceles triangle,** if the ratio of the base angle to the angle at the vertex is algebraic and irrational, then is the ratio between base and side always **transcendental (that is, it cannot be the solution of any algebraic equation)**?

b) Is *a*^*b* always transcendental for algebraic *a* not being 0 or 1, and irrational algebraic *b*? The problem was solved independently by **A. O. Gelfond and T. Schneider in 1934** using similar methods, and the result of their work was the Gelfond-Schneider theorem, with a wide range of applications in transcendental number theory, linear algebra, and model theory.

Precursors brought important contributions to the solution, such as **J. Fourrierâs** for the irrationality of *e* in 1815, **C. Hermiteâ**s proof for the transcendence of *e* in 1873, and **C. L. F. Lindemannâ**s proof for the transcendence of Ï in 1882.

7.** Fermatâs little theorem (43 years to prove)**

Stated first by P. de Fermat in 1640 in a letter to a friend of his, the **conjecture says that if p is prime, then for any integer a, integer a^p â a is a multiple of p**.

Several proofs were given to this theorem over time, either in combinatorial, multinomial, dynamical systems, modular arithmetic, or group theory terms.

**L. Euler** first published a proof in 1736 (with modular arithmetic), however **Leibniz** had actually left the same proof in an unpublished manuscript before 1683.

The theorem is a fundamental result of **number theory** and stands as an important primality test.

An immediate generalization of this theorem is Eulerâs theorem in number theory. The most relevant theoretical application of this theorem was in **group theory**; as for practical applications, one is in **cryptography**.

6.** PoincarĂ© conjecture (98 years to prove)**

In **topology**, PoincarĂ©âs conjecture is a statement characterizing the** 3-sphere (the hypersphere bounding the unit ball in four-dimensional space)**, saying that every simply connected, closed 3-manifold is **homeomorphic **to the 3-sphere.

In other words, for a space that locally looks like three-dimensional space but is connected, finite in size, and lacks any boundary, if such a space has the property that each loop in the space can be continuously tightened to a point, **then it is necessarily a three-dimensional sphere**.

**H. PoincarĂ© stated this conjecture in 1904, and in 2000 it was named one of the Millennium Prize Problems.**

In the 1950s and 1960s, other mathematicians attempted proofs of the conjecture.

In 1958,** R. H. Bing **proved a weak version of the PoincarĂ© conjecture: if every simple closed curve of a compact 3-manifold is contained in a 3-ball, then the manifold is homeomorphic to the 3-sphere.

Russian mathematician** G. Pelerman** offered a complete solution **based on R. Hamiltonâs theory of Ricci **flow and made use of results on spaces of metrics due to **Cheeger, Gromov, and Perelman himself**.

The solution was presented in three preprints posted online between 2002 and 2003, and was reviewed and confirmed in 2006.

Pelerman was awarded the **Fields Medal** for his work.

PoincarĂ©âs conjecture belongs to the early history of **algebraic topology**.

Generalizations of the conjecture to higher dimensions (already proved) links to the concept of **deformation in Riemannian geometry,** with implications and applications for gravitation and cosmology.

5.** The four-color theorem (124 years to prove)**

The theorem states that **4 colors suffice to color any map** such that two adjacent regions will not share the same color.

The conjecture was suggested in 1852 by **Frederik Guthrie** to his professor, mathematician **Augustus De Morgan,** who made it public and contributed to its solution.

Other famous contributors were **W. R. Hamilton, A. Cayley, A. Kempe, P. G. Tait, and J. Koch.**

In a second stage, mathematicians focused on finding techniques to reduce the complicated maps to a set of classifiable cases that could be tested.

Initially, the set was thought to contain nearly 9,000 members, and so the mathematicians appealed to computer techniques to** write algorithms that could do the testing for them**.

In 1976, **Kenneth Appel and Wolfgang Haken** reduced the testing problem to a set with 1,936 configurations, and a complete solution to the four-color Conjecture was achieved **with the help of the computer**.

The theorem was **proved within graph theory**, with the crucial help of Eulerâs formula; however, projective geometry, knot theory, topology, and combinatorics were appealed over time to contribute to the proof.

4.** Catalanâs conjecture (158 years to prove)**

Mathematician** E. C. Catalan conjectured in 1844 **that 8 and 9 are the only consecutive powers (3ÂČ â 2Âł = 1); or in other words, this is the only non-trivial solution of the equationÂ *x*^*p*Â âÂ *y*^*q*Â = Â±1.

More than 500 years before Catalanâs formulation, **Levi ben Gerson** had found that the only powers of 2 and 3 differing by 1 were 8 and 9.

**HyyrĆ and Makowski** proved that **No three consecutive powers exist**.

**R. Tijdeman** showed in 1976 that there can be only a finite number of exceptions should the conjecture not hold.

In 1999, **M. Mignotte** showed that if a nontrivial solution exists, thenÂ *p*Â < 7.15 x 10ÂčÂč andÂ *q*Â < 7.78 x 10Âčâ¶. Romanian mathematician **P. MihÄilescu** solved the conjecture in 2002 in a manuscript sent to several mathematicians and published in 2004.

The solution makes use of the **theory of cyclotomic fields and Galois modules**. A generalization of Catalanâs conjecture applies in complex number theory. Other applications are in Galois theory of groups.

3.** Fermatâs Last Theorem (358 years to prove)**

The conjecture stated by **P. de Fermat in 1637** says that there are No positive integersÂ *a*,Â *b*, andÂ *c*Â such thatÂ *a*^*n*Â +Â *b*^*n*Â =Â *c*^*n*Â for any integerÂ *n*Â greater than 2.

One of the most notable theorems in the history of mathematics, it can be formulated equivalently in various ways, either within number theory or** theory of elliptic curves**.

Fermat proved the conjecture just for the particular case ofÂ *n*Â = 4; however, this yielded an important reduction, that of being sufficient to prove the conjecture for exponentsÂ *n*Â that are prime numbers.

Then, mathematicians struggled for over 350 years to find a proof, and dozens of them made advances. Over the next two centuries following Fermatâs partial proof, the conjecture was proved for only the primes 3, 5, and 7.

In the middle of the 19th century, **E. Kummer** proved it for all regular primes. The final proof was offered in 1995 by **A. Wiles,** who replaced elliptic curves with Galois representations.

The proof brought him the Abel prize in 2016 and other awards. During the search for the solution, a link was discovered between the elliptic curves and modular forms, two completely different fields of mathematics.

The problem and its solution contributed to the development of algebraic number theory and the proof of modularity theorem.

2.** Kepler conjecture (403 years to prove)**

Stated in 1611 by astronomer Johannes Kepler, the conjecture concerns **sphere packing in 3-dimensional space: It says that No arrangement of equally sized spheres filling a space has a greater average density than that of the cubic close packing and hexagonal close packing arrangements**.

F. Gauss showed in 1831 that the conjecture is true if the spheres are arranged in a **regular lattice.**

In 1900, D. Hilbert included the conjecture in his famous list of 23 unsolved problems of mathematics.

In 1953, **F. TĂłth **showed that the problem of determining the maximum density of all arrangements could be reduced to a finite number of calculations. This meant that a proof by exhaustion was possible with the help of a fast enough computer.

Following this idea, **T. Hales applied linear programming methods** to a function on over 5,000 configurations of the spheres and announced in 1998 that his proof was complete.

The proof also relies extensively on methods from the theory of global optimization and interval arithmetic. This wasnât enough for Hales.

In 2014, together with 21 collaborators, he completed his project to find a formal proof for the Kepler conjecture, which can be verified by **automated proof checking software**.

Although it looks like a problem in recreational mathematics, Keplerâs conjecture has relevant links to other geometrical-topology problems that are involved in various optimization models (including the hexagonal tiling of plane and space).

**The honeycomb conjecture (2,035 years to prove)**

By far claiming the longest waiting period for a proof, this conjecture has both practically applicative and philosophical implications.

It says that the **regular hexagonal grid is the best way to divide a surface into regions of equal area with the least total perimeter.**

It can be also stated in terms of finite graphs with smooth curves in bi-dimensional space. The origin of this problem is obscure; it is **mentioned in a text of Marcus Terentius Varro **around 36 B.C.; however, it is hypothesized that** Zenodorusâs much earlier workÂ Isometric Figures**Â (about 180 B.C.) might have mentioned it.

The proof was provided in 1999 by the same T. Hales. The key lemma of the proof is an âisoperimetricâ estimate for perimeter in terms of area and the proof is based on a reduction to finite clusters.

The theorem and generalizations thereof have immediate applications in optimizing space, physical structures, and material waste, for instance in construction.

Generalized for the 3-dimensional space to describe the shape of beesâ honeycomb, the theorem became a subject of debate in the philosophy of science.

Since in physical terms, it reverts to the evolutionary fact that with the hexagonal shape. the bees consume the least amount of wax for a given honeycomb, philosophers of science asked several questions regarding the nature of the explanation of that fact: is this a genuineÂ mathematical explanation, a biological explanation, or a combination of both?

Do bees (and animals in general) have a perceptual mathematical knowledge provided by evolution that complies with formal mathematics?

How is it that bees âknowâ the truth of the conjecture and humans had to wait over two millennia to prove it?

Dr. Catalin Barboianu is the author of the book *What is Mathematics: School Guide to Conceptual Understanding of Mathematics*.

Cleopatra VII (69 â 30 BC) was **Queen of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt** and its last active ruler. (The Seleucid empire ruled over all of Turkey and Syria and fell to the Roman general Pompei)

Most famous for her love affairs withÂ Mark AntonyÂ and **Julius Caesar**, Roman propaganda was quick to paint Cleopatra as little more than a seductress who forged her position in the beds of powerful men.

CleopatraÂ was a powerful and accomplished ruler, but historical accounts discredited her, minimized her successes and vastly exaggerated her indiscretions.

The common view of Cleopatra presented in ancient Roman text and popularized in modern media is one of a temptress who used her sexual talents to gain political advantage. (The **Roman empire disfigured/fake news **of those who confronted its occupation. For example, No records of Hani Bal 12 years stay in Italy)

What these ancient accounts fail to mention is that she was, in fact, one of theÂ greatest intellectuals of her timeÂ .

She was educated by the leading scholars of the Hellenistic world and studied at the Mouseion in Alexandria, which included the famous Library of Alexandria.Â

There she studied geography, history, astronomy, philosophy, international diplomacy, mathematics, alchemy, medicine, zoology, and economics.

*Cleopatra and Caesar (1866), a painting by Jean-LĂ©on GĂ©rĂŽme (Public domain)*

Cleopatra was the only member of her dynasty to **speak ancient Egyptian and read hieroglyphs**.

Apart from this, she** knew ancient Greek and the languages of the Parthians, Jews, Medes, Trogodyatae, Syrians, Ethiopians and Arabs**

It is known that Cleopatra VII spent a lot of time in a type of** ancient laboratory**.

She wrote several works related to herbs and cosmetology.

Unfortunately, all the books by her were lost in the fire of 391 AD, when the great Library of Alexandria was destroyed.

Famous **physician Galen studied her works** and was able to rewrite a few recipes created by her.

One of the medicines which he also suggested to his patients was a special cream, which helped men to gain back their hair.

Her impact on the sciences and medicine was well known even during the first centuries of Christianity.

In a world full of powerful people that were out to see her dead, Cleopatra was able to outsmart them all.

After the death of Cleopatra, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire, marking the end of the second to last Hellenistic state and the age that had lasted since the reign of Alexander.

Einstein published a paper that asked the question **âDoes the inertia of a body depend upon its energy-content?â**

The received message was â**Mass is also a form of Energy**â;

All**Â energy is inertia.**Â And allÂ **âworkâ is simply âa transfer of inertiaâ**.

The quantity of inertial mass âGENERATEDâ is determined by the **speed of spatial oscillation**.

A few explanatory equations in this valuable article:

**c = (Ï**âââ**)(r**âá”ąâ**)**. **(r-min)** being the **minimum âradius of twistâ)**

**u = (Ï)(r**âá”ąâ**)**

**the speed of light (c) equates to the maximum linear speed of angular oscillation.**

**E-max is the maximum allowable energy containable in an elementary spatial oscillation.**

**E = (m**âââ**Â u c)** or ** E = (m**âââ**Â u u**âââ**)**

**(c)ÂČ = (u**á”Łââ**)ÂČ + (v**á”Łââ**)ÂČ** (rel. means relative to observer. V is linear speed)

**(u**á”Łââ**/c) = SQRT (1 – (v**á”Łââ**/c)ÂČ)= 1/Îł**

**TIME is not really a thing in itself, NOR is it a âfourthâ dimension. TIME is but an emergent property of oscillating 3D-Space.**

**(Îv**âââ**)ÂČ = (c)ÂČ – (u**â**)ÂČ**. (Maximum change in velocity (delta-v-max). Knowing that “change in velocity” is absolute and Not relative as velocity to the observer)

ÂœmvÂČ = (Îm c c)This equation says that an absolute change in Kinetic Energy

equates to an absolute change in MassâŠ

I have always found the scientific definition of energy highly unsatisfactory.

The scientific definition of energy states that âEnergy is the Ability to do Workâ. So what is Work then?

Well, the scientific definition of work states that â**Work is a measure of Energy Transferâ**.

So A is defined by B, and B is defined by A. Thatâs clearly not very useful, but we will come back to this later.

It is safe to say that everyone has a “feel” of what âEnergyâ is: it is just hard to put your finger on it.

We know that energy often travels in waves (of particles?). Water waves and sound waves are common examples of this.

Waves are simply a series of oscillations. The amplitude of any oscillation is simply the maximum displacement of an event from its equilibrium position. In general the amplitude of the wave, tells us how much energy is in a wave.

In the case of water waves, higher amplitude means taller waves. And, in the case of sound waves, higher amplitude means louder sound.

Amplitude, however, is not the only factor that determines the amount of energy transfer in a wave.

**The âFrequencyâ of a wave tells us how many amplitudes are transferred per second.**

And so taken together we can say that the amount of energy in material waves is a product (**Not necessarily a product, but two factors entering into the equation)** of the intensity of the waves (as given by the amplitude), times, the number of waves per second (as given by the frequency).

In 1802, **Thomas Young **suggested that the energy in âLightâ also travels in waves.

And , in 1865 **James Clerk Maxwellâ**s work on electromagnetism not only seemed to confirm this idea, but further suggested that these waves are in fact, **âElectromagneticâ waves.**

Electromagnetic waves are considered part of classical physics. The classical relationship between amplitude and intensity is therefore said to extend to light; and so in the case of light waves, higher amplitude means brighter light.

However, unlike all other waves in classical physics, the rate of energy transfer is said to be independent of the frequency, and consequently the energy in a beam of light is said to be determined solely by the amplitude, or the âbrightnessâ, of the light.

This belief in the independence of intensity from frequency ultimately led to some considerable confusion when, in December 1900, **Max Planck** made a mathematical discovery that seemed to imply that the amplitude of light was, in fact, **âQuantizedâ by frequency **â meaning that the amplitude of light, could ONLY rise and fall in increments of a **minimum value of energy, defined by the frequency itself.**

This âquantization of energyâ was a significant break with classical physics, and would ultimately lead to the strange new world of âQuantumâ physics.

I am suggesting that this drastic break with classical physics **was somewhat misguided**.

In my work, I am suggesting that the concept of âenergy quantizationâ was a misinterpretation of the underlying physics of light.

I suggest that a more likely explanation is that: **what is normal for classical material waves is simply reversed for classical EM waves.**

I am suggesting that while the energy in material waves is defined by the intensity per wave (as given by the amplitude), times, the number of waves per second (as given by their frequency); the energy in EM waves , by contrast, is defined by the **intensity per photon** (as given by the frequency), times, the number of photons at a given moment in time â and the size of this âgroup of photonsâ is what is being measured as the âamplitudeâ of the EM wave.

This idea could be summarized in a fashion below:

- Sound Wave Energy (E) â Intensity per wave (i.e. amplitude/loudness) x Number of waves per second (i.e. frequency).
- Light EM Energy(E) â Intensity per photon (i.e. frequency) x Number of instantaneous photons (i.e. amplitude/brightness).

This reimagining of the nature of light leads to some very interesting results.

In the previous post âThe Amplitude IS the Frequencyâ I addressed the idea that EM Waves, and the Speed of Light, might in some way be related to the **âRate of Change of CURL (circulating field)ââŠ**

In his work on classical electrodynamics, James Clerk Maxwell had introduced the concept of âCurlâ to explain âCirculatingâ electric and magnetic fields.

**Maxwell defined curl as âa circulation, per unit area, over an infinitesimal path, around a point in spaceâ**.

In the previous post, we asked the question **what if** there is no such thing as a âzero-dimensional pointâ in space? **What if space is actually âquantizedâ into tiny â Infinitesimal Volumesâ?**

If this were to be the case then the concept of curl would have to relate NOT to a zero-dimensional point in Space, but to an infinitesimal **three-dimensional âElement of Spaceâ.**

And, in this scenario Maxwellâs description of curl as being a âCirculation per Unit Areaâ, would equate to the concept of **âTwisting the Cross-Sectional-Areaâ** of an infinitesimal-volume about its remaining third dimension.

And THAT possibility led to a very important consequence, because twisting any cross-sectional area of a cube comes up against a physical restriction, in the form of: **a maximum amount of twist**.

**It is impossible to twist a 2D square more than 90 degrees; and we used this simple geometric fact to reason that if there exists a maximum quantity of twist (Îžâââ = Ï/2 radians), then there must also exist a minimum turning circle, with a minimum âradius of twistâ (r-min).**

And if there exists a (r-min) then, thanks to the fixed speed of light (c), there must also exist a **maximum angular frequency (Ï-max).**

From these simple foundational steps, we were able to render an alternative version of the famous Planck-Einstein Relation (E=hf)âwhich in the previous paper was given by

Equation (1.9) _________ E = (hfâââ)(Îž/Îžâââ)(Two limiting factors:

fâââ andÎžâââ)

This equation is saying that the amount of energy in an oscillating quantum volume is a function of its frequency, which itself is a function of the angular amplitude of displacement and oscillation, **theta.**

We will use this equation as the starting point for the following workâŠ

Equation (2.1) ________ E = (hfâââ)(Îž/Îžâââ)

In this equation (f-max) is the maximum frequency of oscillation, and its value is 2.9521 x 10âŽÂČ Cycles per Second.

This equation can also be written in its alternative form as

Equation (2.2) ________ E = (Ä§Ïâââ)(Îž/Îžâââ)

In this equation, **the Planck Constant (h)** has been replaced by the âReduced Planck Constantâ (h-bar) which has a value of (h/2Ï), and (Ï-max) is the maximumÂ **âangularâ**Â frequency of oscillation, and its value is 1.8549 x 10âŽÂł Radians per Second.

Using the equality (Îž/Îžâââ) equals (Ï/Ïâââ), from the equation (1.6), we can convert equation (2.2) to

Equation (2.3) ________ E = (Ä§Ïâââ)(Ï/Ïâââ)

Since (Ï-max) is a constant, what we have here, in equation (2.3), is **one of the traditional forms** of the Planck Einstein Relation that says that the energy in a photon of light is determined by its angular frequency (Ï).

Now, one of the earliest developments in the science of physics was Galileoâs insight that âangular frequencyâ is, in fact, the same thing asÂ **âangular SPEEDâ**.

And so if we multiply (r-min) by an angular frequency we will get a linear speed.

We have already seen that the product of the constants omega-max and (r-min) gives us the speed of light (c).

Equation (1.4) _________ c = (Ïâââ)(râá”ąâ)

And so now, if we were to multiply the variable omega by this same quantity (r-min) we will clearly get a speed which is clearly less than (c) which we will label as â(u)â.

Equation (2.4) __________ u = (Ï)(râá”ąâ)

Using this notation equation (2.3) can now be written as

Equation (2.5) _________ E = (Ä§Ïâââ)(u/c)

Now, clearly (u) represents **the linear speed **associated with the** angular speed of oscillation**, which means that

the speed of light (c) equates to the maximum linear speed of angular oscillation.

This is interesting because, to date, there is no provable or, for that matter, even credible explanation for why there should exist a maximum speed in the universe. But the very existence of any sort of physical maximum implies that something physical must be limiting behavior.

Consequently it seems not unreasonable to suggest that maybe the speed of light (c) could, actually be the result of the **physical upper-limit that simple geometry places on theÂ âangular speedâ**Â of an angular oscillation of a quantum unit of space. We will elevate this idea to a postulate of this work, and write it as

Equation (2.6) ____________ c = uâââ

Now, we believe that this is more than just a wild guess, because this postulate leads to some interesting results that seem to explain a large swathe of Modern Physics.

The first of these is that since (c)is a constant, then what we have in equation (2.5) is a form of the Planck Einstein Relation that says that **the energy in a photon of light is determined solely by its own âspeed of oscillationâ.** Which is interestingâŠ

A second result is that we can now see that (Îž/Îžâââ), (Ï/Ïâââ), (f/fâââ), and (u/uâââ) are, in fact, all different forms of the **dimensionless quantity (u/c).**

Eq. (2.7) ________ (u/c) = (Îž/Îžâââ) = (Ï/Ïâââ) = (f/fâââ) = (u/uâââ)

This means that each of these values (associated with an elementary spatial oscillation) can be expressed as a fraction of their maximum value.

Equation (2.8) ___________ Îž = (Îžâââ)(u/c)

Equation (2.9) __________ Ï = (Ïâââ)(u/c)

Equation (2.10) __________ f = (fâââ)(u/c)

Equation (2.11) _________ u = (uâââ)(u/c)

And a third result is that the quantity (Ä§Ïâââ) clearly equates to the maximum energy of a photon (E-max) which means that equation (2.5) can also be written as

Equation (2.12) _________ E = (Eâââ)(u/c)

Given the values of (h-bar) and (Ï-max),** E-max has a value of 1.9561 x 10âč Joules.**

This quantity is already known to Physics as the so-called â**Planck-Energyâ**, and so equation (2.14) now tells us what this mysterious quantity of energy actually represents.Â

**E-max is the maximum allowable energy containable in an elementary spatial oscillation.**

These are all interesting results. But there is moreâŠ

The connection between (u-max) and (c) points to a similar connection between the domain of Quantum Physics, and the domain of Special Relativity.

We know that the Planck Energy is related to the Planck Mass in the following way

Equation (2.13) _________ Eâââ= (mâââcc)

And so if we combine equations (2.12) and (2.13) we get an equation for energy written in terms of both, the Planck Mass, and the Speed of Oscillation

Equation (2.14) ________ E = (mâââcc)(u/c)

And by cancelation this reduces to

Equation (2.15) __________ E = (mâââu c)

Alternatively, using equation (2.6), we could also write this equation as

Equation (2.16) _________ E = (mâââu uâââ)

Now, for an observer moving with the oscillating photon there is no perceived linear motion to this oscillation, so the âSQUAREDâ version of equation (2.16) can be written as

Equation (2.17) _________ EÂČ = (mâââu uâââ)ÂČ

However, as we all know, speed is relative, and consequently the squared version of equation (2.16) is NOT the same for all observers.

**Any observer outside the frame of oscillation will see the total energy content as beingÂ DISTRIBUTEDÂ between a speed of oscillation, and a speed of linear motion.**

Consequently, the general form for the energy within an oscillation (from the point of view of ALL observers) must be written as

Eq. (2.18) ____ EÂČ = (mâââÂ u uá”Łââ)ÂČ + (mâââÂ u vá”Łââ)ÂČ(rel means relative to observer)

This is the full equation for the energy contained in an oscillation from the point of view of ANY observer in ANY frame of reference.

This is another significant result for it suggests that:

Although the energy content of the photon is the same for all observers,Â **the distribution of that energy content**Â can be different for different observers.

Moreover, if we equate equations (2.17) and (2.18) and divide both sides by the quantity (mâââ u) we get

Eq. (2.19) _________ (uâââ)ÂČ = (uá”Łââ)ÂČ + (vá”Łââ)ÂČ

And using equation (2.6) from above, we can rewrite this as

Eq. (2.20) __________ (c)ÂČ = (uá”Łââ)ÂČ + (vá”Łââ)ÂČ

This equation suggests that: although the speed of light (c) is indeed constant for all observers (as Einstein postulated in 1905), **the distribution of that fixed speed is, in fact, ârelativeâ.**

Moreover, equation (2.20) can be rearranged as follows

Eq. (2.21) __________ (uá”Łââ)ÂČ = (c)ÂČ – (vá”Łââ)ÂČ

Eq. (2.22) _________ (uá”Łââ) = SQRT (cÂČ – vá”ŁââÂČ)

Eq. (2.23) _________ (uá”Łââ/c) = SQRT (1 – (vá”Łââ/c)ÂČ)

And this quantity (u-relative over c) isÂ **the inverse of gamma (Îł)**, a quantity that is ubiquitous in Special Relativity.

We write this relationship as

Equation (2.24) _____________ uá”Łââ/c = 1/Îł

It should be noted here that: the **quantities (u) and (u-rel) are different quantities**.

The quantity (u) determines the energy content, and the quantity (u-rel) reflects the observers measurement of the distribution of that energy content (measured as a distribution between two different forms of motion â oscillatory motion and linear motion)..

Without having to dive into all the gory details of Special Relativity, it is clear to see that this relative distribution of energy can **explain the true nature of TIME .**

Time is a relative quantity; not because the speed of light (c) is fixed, but because the distribution of (c) is relative; and so **âObserved-Timeâ is always relative to the observers relative motion.**

Einstein was right to believe that Time is Relative, that it is a subjective quantity. And here we can clearly see why that is the case.

Time is really just a consequence of the fact that:

while all spatial oscillations have an angular cycle, not all angular cycles are created equal(some have more radians than others)âŠ

**It also means that TIME is not really a thing in itself, NOR is it a âfourthâ dimension. TIME is but an emergent property of oscillating 3D-Space.**

This is another important result of this work. However, there is moreâŠ

It is clear to see that (mâââ u) can also be written as (mc), so this means that we can convert equation (2.18) to

Eq. (2.25) ___________ EÂČ = (m c uá”Łââ)ÂČ + (m c vá”Łââ)ÂČ

And since the quantity (m vá”Łââ) represents â**relative momentumâ**, we can write equation (2.25) as

Eq. (2.26) ____________ EÂČ = (m c uá”Łââ)ÂČ + (pá”Łââc)ÂČ

If this equation appears familiar, it is because this equation is reminiscent of the traditional âEnergy-Momentum Relationâ in which both Energy (E) and Momentum (p) are considered ârelativisticâ quantities.

**In equation (2.26), however, momentum is relative, but energy is NOT.**

The reason being is that althoughÂ **âobservedâÂ **momentum is relative, so too is theÂ **âobservedâ**Â speed of oscillation; and so the value of this relative momentum has no effect on the value of energy (E), but merely on theÂ **âObserved Distributionâ**Â of energy (E-squared).

Equation (2.26) shows that **different observers see different distributions of Rest Energy and Momentum Energy.**

This is another important result of this work. However, there is moreâŠ

While, velocity may be relative, **a change in velocity is absolute. **

Therefore given the existence of a maximum energy (allowable per unit volume), then there must also be a maximum allowable change in velocity for a given value of (u) â regardless of the observerâs own frame of reference.

To calculate this maximum allowable change in velocity, we will start with the observation that, for any change in energy, the following equation will hold true.

Equation (2.27) __________ Eâ= (uâ/uâ)Eâ

Since we know that there is a limit to the quantity of energy allowable per unit volume, the equation for a maximum change in energy is therefore given by

Equation (2.28) _________ Eâââ= (uâââ/uâ)Eâ

This equation tells us that the maximum change in energy is determined solely by the current value of (u-1), and thus we can use (u-1) to calculate the maximum change in velocity (delta-v-max).

Eq. (2.29) _________ (Îvâââ)ÂČ = (uâââ)ÂČ – (uâ)ÂČ

Eq. (2.30) __________ (Îvâââ)ÂČ = (c)ÂČ – (uâ)ÂČ

Eq. (2.31) __________ Îvâââ= SQRT (cÂČ – uâÂČ)

So here we see that: the maximum speed a particle can achieve is determined by its own internal speed of oscillation. Consequently, only things that have very low energy (such as light) are capable of travelling close to the universeâs maximum speed (c).

This is another important result of this work. But, there is one more thing worth looking atâŠ

Associated with any absolute change in velocity, is an absolute change in Kinetic Energy. Thus we can express a change in energy in an alternative way from before.

Equation (2.32) ___________ Eâ= Eâ+ ÎE

Now, we can replace (delta-E) with a quantity representing a Change in Kinetic Energy

Equation (2.33) __________ Eâ= Eâ+ ÂœmvÂČ

And, we can rearrange this equation, to get

Equation (2.34) ___________ ÂœmvÂČ = Eâ– Eâ

And using equation (2.27) from above, we can rewrite this equation as

Eq. (2.35) ___________ ÂœmvÂČ = (uâ/uâ)Eâ– Eâ

And this can be rewritten as

Eq. (2.36) __________ ÂœmvÂČ = Eâ((uâ– uâ)/uâ)

Which can be rewritten as

Eq. (2.37) ____________ ÂœmvÂČ = Eâ(Îu/uâ)

And, using equation (2.15), this can be rewritten as

Eq. (2.38) _________ ÂœmvÂČ = (mâââuâc)(Îu/uâ)

And this can be rewritten as

Equation (2.39) ___________ ÂœmvÂČ = (mâââÎu c)

Which can be rewritten as

Equation (2.40) _____________ ÂœmvÂČ = (Îm c c)

This equation says that an absolute change in Kinetic Energy equates to an absolute change in MassâŠ

This is probably the most important take-home message of this work on energy, because it concerns the very nature of energy itself.

We all know that the faster something moves the harder it is to stop, and here we see that the faster something moves, the more massive it becomes, which makes it not only harder to stop but also harder to accelerate further. These two facts taken together suggests that energy is really just a form of **âINERTIAâ**.

Before Einstein, the concept of energy was always simply associated with the concept of motion (or, the **potential for motion)**.

But then everything changed when Einstein published a paper that asked the question **âDoes the inertia of a body depend upon its energy-content?â**

The received message of this famous paper is that âMass is also a form of Energyâ;

However, it seems possible that the true message has never been fully appreciated (not even by Einstein himself).

If the supposition that it is Space that is quantized (NOT energy) is the correct interpretation of Planckâs work, then this conjecture must ultimately lead us to the conclusion that ALL ENERGY (both rest energy and momentum energy) is simply a form of INERTIAL MASS; and consequently, contrary to what is taught, there can be no such thing as âmassless energyâ. All** energy is inertia.** And all **âworkâ is simply âa transfer of inertiaâ**.

This conjecture also suggests that Inertial Mass is not really a thing in itself, but an emergent property of the dynamics of Quantum 3D-Space, which can be clearly shown by rewriting equation (2.14) as follows

Equation (2.41) _________ mcc = (mâââcc)(u/c)

Equation (2.42) ___________ m = (mâââ)(u/c)

Here we see that the quantity of inertial mass âGENERATEDâ is determined by the speed of spatial oscillation; (and how and why this should come to be so, we will come to next)âŠ

**Note**: The processes in Nature leave the mass intact by decomposition. Only human species managed to “exhaust” Earth mass.

My conjecture is that a **Star explodes** when its Mass can no longer sustain the required energy needed in its processes.

The Phoenicians were an ancient people who once ruled the Mediterranean.

Despite little being known about them as very few of their inscriptions have survived, **their legacy has had an enormous impact on the world, which is still felt today.**

Ice Age Huntersâ DNA Reveals The Origins Of Farming

The Phoenicians were renowned as excellent mariners and used their expertise to trade all across the Mediterranean. One of the most notable signs of their trade activity is the establishment of Carthage, in present day Tunisia. They were also the **inventors of the alphabet.**

According to tradition, the city of Carthage was founded as a colony in 814 BC by Phoenicians under the leadership of the legendaryÂ Queen DidoÂ (**Alissar**).

TheÂ CarthaginiansÂ themselves became a dominant maritime power in the western Mediterranean, until its final destruction by Rome in 146 BC, following their defeat in theÂ Punic WarsÂ .

Apart from Carthage, the Phoenicians **founded colonies on Cyprus, Sicily, Greece, France, Spain and in current Turkey**.

The greater part of the territory they once occupied corresponds to modern day Lebanon, but the Phoenicians also held parts of southern Syria and northern Israel.

The Phoenicians made numerous contributions to human civilization, the most notable of which being the Phoenician alphabet , which is the ancestor of many other alphabets that are used today.

Scholars have speculated that the Phoenicians referred to themselves as âKenaâaniâ (âKinahnaâ in Akkadian, or **âCanaaniteâ** in English). Interestingly, in Hebrew, this word also meant âmerchantâ, which is an apt description of the Phoenicians.

The term âPhoeniciansâ, however, is commonly used today, as it was the Greeks who called these people by this name.

The ancient Greeks referred to the land of the Phoenicians as **âPhoinikiâ,** which is derived from the Egyptian âFnkhwâ, meaning **âSyrian**â.

The Greek âPhoinikiâ is phonetically similar to their word for the **color purple or crimson (**âphoĂźnixâ).

This is due to the fact that one of the most valuable objects produced and exported by the Phoenicians was a dye known as **Tyrian purple**. Thus, the Phoenicians were known also as the âPurple Peopleâ.

According to the Greek historian **Herodotus,** the Phoenicians were originally from the Red Sea area, but later emigrated to and settled along the eastern coast of the Mediterranean.

Archaeologists today regard Herodotusâ account of the Phoeniciansâ origins as a myth.

In addition, there is a lack of evidence to support the claims that the Phoenicians emigrated to the eastern Mediterranean from other areas of the ancient world.

Instead, it is accepted that the Phoenicians were originally from the eastern Mediterranean and may have developed from the **Ghassulian culture,** which is an archaeological stage in southern Palestine dating to the Middle Chalcolithic period, i.e. the 4 ^{th} millennium BC.

The Phoenicians flourished during the 1 ^{st} millennium BC. During that time, there were **other Canaanite cultures inhabiting the region** as well, and archaeologists are unable to differentiate between the Phoenicians and these other cultures in terms of material culture, language, and religious beliefs.

This is due to the fact that the Phoenicians were themselves Canaanites. Nevertheless, the Phoenicians distinguished themselves from their Canaanite brethren by their achievements as **seafarers and traders**.

*The Phoenicians flourished as marine merchants. (Baddu676 / **Public Domain **)*

As mentioned before, the Greek âPhoinikiâ is associated with the dye known as Tyrian purple, which was traded by the Phoenicians. Indeed, this was one of the best-known products of Phoenicia.

Tyrian purple was a highly-prized dye that was made using several species of sea snails belonging to the Muricidae family (commonly known as murex snails).

One legend states that it was the Greek hero Hercules who discovered this dye. According to this tale, Hercules was strolling along the beach with a nymph, Tyrus, and his dog. Herculesâ dog came across a murex shell and devoured it. When the dog returned to its master its mouth was stained a brilliant purple.

Tyrus found the color so attractive that she requested from Hercules a robe of the of the same color as the price for her hand in marriage. Hercules obliged and gathered enough murex snails to produce the dye necessary to color Tyrusâ robe.

In reality, Tyrian purple was discovered by the Phoenician. Although nobody is certain today as to how the dyeâs discovery was made, it is entirely possible that it was accidental, similar to the Hercules story.

*The discovery of Tyrian purple, which was made famous by the Phoenicians. (Lomojo / **Public Domain **)*

Tyrian purple was not the only trade object that the Phoenicians were famous for.

**Glass **was another valuable product that the Phoenicians exported to the rest of the Mediterranean. Glass was already being produced by other civilizations including the Mesopotamians and Egyptians.

The glass produced by these civilizations was colored and it is speculated that the Phoenicians were the first ones to produce **transparent glass**.

Yet another produce of Phoenicia was cedar wood, which the region is famous for, as far back as the Mesopotamian period. One of the main consumers of cedar wood during the 1 ^{st} millennium BC was Egypt, as the demand for wood by the Egyptians was greater than the local supply.

Therefore, cedar wood was imported into Egypt from Phoenicia. During the 14 ^{th} century BC, for instance, the Phoenicians paid tribute to Egypt by offering cedar wood, as attested in the Amarna Letters (a city in Lebanon).

The fame of the cedar wood from Phoenicia is also seen in the *Story of Wenamun *. In this Egyptian tale, Wenamun, a priest from the Amun Temple in Karnak sets off in a Phoenician ship to Byblos to purchase timber for the **construction of a solar boat.**

As superb seafarers, the Phoenician merchants need not rely solely on the goods locally produced in Phoenicia. They were more than capable of traveling to the far corners of the Mediterranean **to obtain resources** that they did not have back home.

The most important of these were precious metals â** tin and silver from Spain (and perhaps as far as Cornwall in England) and copper from Cyprus.**

Colonies were set up along the trade routes in order to facilitate the journey of the Phoenician merchants. Moreover, Phoenicia is situated in a geographically strategic position that allowed it to further increase its wealth from trade.

The land of the Phoenicians is located between Mesopotamia in the east and Egypt and Arabia in the south / southwest.

Trade routes between these two areas of the ancient world had to pass through Phoenicia thereby enriching the Phoenicians even further.

*Map of Phoenicia and its Mediterranean trade routes. (Ras67 / **CC BY-SA 3.0 **)*

We do not know to whether the Phoenicians had a shared identity and if they considered themselves as a single nation. Nevertheless, we do know that they established **city states **which were politically independent.

The rise of these Phoenician city states occurred around 12th / 11th centuries BC.

Around this time, the old powers that dominated the region, i.e. the Egyptians and the Hittites , had either been weakened or were destroyed. For instance, the arrival of the Sea Peoples led to the decline of the New Kingdom in Egypt, while the Hittite Empire was breaking up around the same time.

The Phoenicians seized the opportunity to fill the power vacuum left behind by these empires by establishing their own city states. It seems that each city state was ruled by a monarch, whose power was limited by a **powerful oligarchy.**

In addition, there is no evidence that the cities banded together into a federation. Instead, they operated independently. Among the most notable Phoenician city states were Tyre, Sidon, and Byblos.

Byblos (known today in Arabic as Jbail) is located about 30 kilometers (20 miles) to the north of modern day Beirut. Its history stretches way back before its rise as a powerful Phoenician city state during the 12th century BC.

Byblos is considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and according to the archaeological evidence was settled by human beings as early as the Neolithic period.

By the 4th millennium BC Byblos had grown into an extensive settlement. Byblos became the main harbor from which cedar wood was exported to Egypt. As a result of this, the city developed into an important trade center.

Byblos became an Egyptian dependency during the first half of the 2nd millennium BC and maintained close ties with Egypt in the following centuries.

With the decline and subsequent collapse of the Egyptian New Kingdom during the 11th century BC, Byblos became the leading city state in Phoenicia.

By around 1000 BC, Byblos was eclipsed by two other independent Phoenician city states, Sidon and Tyre. Like Byblos, Sidon (known today in Arabic as **Saida**) was already an ancient city by the time it became an independent city state.

Sidon was established during the 3rdÂ millennium BC and prospered in the following millennium as a result of trade. On the other hand, Tyre (known today in Arabic as** Sur)** was probably originally founded as a colony of Sidon.

Like Byblos and Sidon, Tyre too became an independent city state when the Egyptians lost their grip over that region.

In time, Tyre surpassed Sidon as the most important Phoenician city state as it traded and established its own colonies in other parts of the Mediterranean.

According to tradition, the famous city of Carthage was established as a colony of Tyre in 814 BC.

*Archaeological site of Carthage, city established by the Phoenicians. (Eric00000007 / **CC BY-SA 3.0 **)*

Both Sidon and Tyre are also mentioned frequently in the Old Testament. For instance, the king of Tyre, Hiram, is recorded as providing Solomon the materials required for building the temple in Jerusalem.

The Phoenician city states were not able to hold on to their independence for long.

The wealth of these city states must have attracted the attention of **foreign military powers**.

During the 8Â ^{th}Â and 7Â ^{th}Â centuries BC, the Phoenician city states came under the rule of the Neo-Assyrian Empire.

In 538 BC, Phoenicia was conquered byÂ Cyrus the GreatÂ and came under Persian rule. Although the Phoenicians had lost their independence their cities continued to flourish. (The civilization of Persia in infrastructure was due to the **transferred Artisans and Expert from Syria and Lebanon**)

Due to their expertise in seafaring, the Phoenicians supplied ships for the Persian kings. Persian rule over Phoenicia ended during the 4thÂ century BC, when the region fell toÂ Alexander the GreatÂ .

One of the major battles of Alexanderâs campaign against the Persian Empire was the Siege of Tyre, which occurred in 332 BC. As the naval base of the Persians, Alexander knew that it would be unwise to leave it in the hands of the enemy as he continued his campaign southwards.

He was also aware that Tyre would not fall so easily, as it was situated on an island off the mainland and was heavily fortified.

Therefore, he requested permission to offer sacrifices at the **Temple of Melqart**, the Phoenician god identified with the Greek hero Heracles, in the hopes that he would be allowed to enter the city. **Alexanderâs request was rejected, **so he sent heralds to issue an ultimatum to the Tyrians â surrender or be conquered. In response, the Tyrians killed the heralds and threw them off the city walls.

*Alexander the Great at the Siege of Tyre attacking the Phoenicians. ( **à€Șà€Ÿà€à€Čà€żà€Șà„à€€à„à€°** / **Public Domain **)*

Enraged by the Tyrianâs defiance, Alexander proceeded to besiege the city.

Due to the lack of a naval force the Macedonians were unable to assault the city directly. Instead, Alexanderâs engineers began building a causeway to connect the island to the mainland. The Tyrians in turn sought to hamper the construction of the causeway, which was successful, **until the arrival of a fleet of ships from Cyprus, as well as those that defected to Alexander from the Persians.**

(**The essential question is: How come Carthage refrained from supporting Tyre? It had the largest maritime fleet)**

Eventually, the causeway was completed, and the Macedonians stormed and captured the city. The entire siege lasted seven months. Still furious with the Tyrians, **Alexander executed about 10,000 of the cityâs inhabitants, while another 30,000 were sold into slavery.**

In the years following the death of Alexander the Great, Phoenicia was one of the regions fought over by the Seleucids and the Ptolemies, two of Alexanderâs successors.

During this period, the Phoenicians were gradually Hellenized, and their original identity was slowly being replaced. Finally, Phoenicia was incorporated by Pompey as part of the Roman province of Syria in 65 BC.

Although the Phoenicians disappeared from the pages of history, they are still remembered today as expert seafarers and merchants. This reputation, however, pales in comparison to the greatest contribution made by the Phoenicians to the modern world â the alphabet.

Like much of the Middle East during that time, the Phoenicians used a **script known as cuneiform **which originated in Mesopotamia. By around 1200 BC the Phoenicians had developed their own script. The earliest known example of the Phoenician script is found on the **Sarcophagus of Ahiram, **which was discovered in Byblos.

TheÂ Phoenician alphabetÂ was later adopted by the Greeks who kept some characters while removing others.

TheÂ Greek alphabetÂ was in turn adopted by the Romans resulting in its spread all across Europe. Additionally, the Phoenician alphabet is considered to be the basis of other Middle Eastern, as well as Indian alphabets, either directly or indirectly.

The first in a series of articles focused on combinatorics. When I first took a discrete math course in college, I jokingly told my friends that here I was, a math major, learning how to count.

Honestly though, I donât know of a better way to describe combinatorics.

I can say that itâs one of my favorite fields of math (along with graph theory) not just because the subject itself is so intriguing, but because itâs something **you can easily talk about with people **who arenât as comfy with mathematics yet.

Itâs simultaneously accessible and rich with open, unanswered questions. (Not a comfortable state of mind)

Before we dive into the nitty gritty though, letâs zoom out and see where combinatorics stands in the grand scheme of mathematics.

Letâs start with a broad overview. Hereâs a really cool video made by Dominic Walliman that illustrates the various fields of math and how they fit together.

In his video, Dominic begins by dividing math **into two main (although definitely not exclusive) categories:** pure and applied.

But thatâs not the only way to see math. We could also start by considering two very different categories: discrete and continuous.

Discrete math deals with objects that are distinct from one another and can be counted with the natural numbers (0,1,2,3,âŠ). This means we donât really bother thinking about real numbers, calculus, Euclidean geometry, any of that messy continuous stuff.

There are many fields that exist under the broad umbrella of discrete math. Some of these include graph theory, game theory, number theory, computer science, and of course, combinatorics.

Broadly speaking, combinatorics is the math of counting things.

To get a sense of what that actually means, here are a few questions that combinatorics can help answer:

- Given a standard deck of 52 cards, how many cards would you need to draw in order to guarantee you have a spade in your hand?
- How many distinct passwords can you create with the letters A-Z and numbers 0â9?
- How many ways can we distribute 20 identical pencils to 7 students?
- How many distinct ways can we rearrange the letters in MISSISSIPPI?

These are just a few examples of questions weâre going to work through in this series.

Along the way, weâll also see some cool families of numbers, some intriguing applications, and a heck of a lot of cool math.

*If your interest is piqued and youâre already ready for more, go check out **this cool video** from Numberphile.*

(How about writing a few examples of that video?)

]]>**Note**: I have watched the movie on Ramanujan.

Ujjwal Singh

Aug 29, 2021

In 1911, the Indian mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan posed the above problem in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society.

After waiting in vain for a few months, he himself provided a solution to the same journal

In this article, we go over Ramanujanâs solution (taking note of its spell-binding simplicity) along with **exploring a calculus-based approach** for the problem.

But first, let us state us state a few important things explicitly.

- We will work on
**the assumption that the sequence given above converges**. Strictly speaking, we should first prove the convergence of the sequence, and then go about finding its limit. However, for the sake of simplicity, weâd take the sequenceâs convergence for granted, and just focus on finding the limit. - The solution presented below is not the exact one provided by Ramanujan in the journal. Rather, itâs a simplified version, the intention being to capture the gist of Ramanujanâs solution.

Note that for **any non-negative real number x**, we have â

Now, *(x + 2)* can again be written as *((x + 1) + 1)*, to get â

Carrying on with the process and writing *(x + 3)* as *((x + 2) + 1)*, we get â

The pattern is pretty visible by now. Itâs clear that if we carry on this process infinitely, weâd land at â

Now comes the magic! Plugging in *x = 2*, we get â

The solution to our problem turns out to be just ** 3 **!

Itâs hard not to wonder at the remarkable stroke of genius at the heart of this solution. Who would have thought that

representing a number as the square root of its squarecould lead to such a beautiful identity?

Also, the above serves as an excellent example of a broader category of problems â wherein the problem posed is a particular case of more general identity.

In such cases, we discover the general identity first and then plug in suitable values to get the desired result.

For example, we can now easily say that â

So, that was Ramanujanâs solution to the problem. Next, we move on to explore a calculus-based approach for the same!

**Another disclaimer**: We assume the existence of a *differentiable real-valued function f*,* *defined implicitly as* *â

Again, we have forsaken some mathematical rigor here, by *assuming* that such a function exists without actually proving the same. Now, our goal is â provided such a function exists, can we exploit it to solve our original problem?

Note that â

Carrying on, we arrive at â

As would be clearly visible by now, the solution to our problem is â *f(2)*! That is because,

Of course, the above is what inspired our function definition in the first place! Now, letâs try finding out the value of *f(2)*.

Again,

Now, letâs see what the derivative of *f(x)* tells us!

Again, setting *x = 0* in [3], we get â

Weâre almost there! Getting back to the original equation â

There we have it! The value of *f(2)*, and thereby the answer to our problem, is **3**!

To add some historical context, Ramanujan published this problem in 1911, while trying to establish himself within the national mathematical community.

A couple of years later, heâd get in contact with G.H. Hardy, move to Cambridge, and over the next five (during WW1) years the duo would go on to form one of the most productive mathematical partnerships ever.

Of course, Ramanujan is a name that needs no special introduction. His life and achievements have already been thoroughly documented. This article (as well as the problem posed by Ramanujan in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society) is merely a teaser from one of his favorite domains â nested radicals and continued fractions.

As was typical of him, Ramanujan possessed an all-absorbing **interest in particular fields of mathematics**, while remaining completely oblivious to the rest.

Who could have better understood this than Hardy himself! We end this article with a brilliant quote from him which aptly sums up Ramanujanâ

]]>The limitations of his knowledge were as startling as its profundity. Here was a man who could work out modular equations and theoremsâŠ to orders unheard of, whose mastery of continued fractions wasâŠ beyond that of any mathematician in the world;

And yet he had never heard of a doubly periodic function or of Cauchyâs theorem, and had indeed but the vaguest idea of what a

function of a complex variable wasâŠâ G.H. Hardy

**Interview Ă la revue Golias**

1. La France, en phase dâessoufflement, risque un phĂ©nomĂšne dâhystĂ©rĂ©sis

2. Lâimposture des grandes dĂ©mocraties occidentales

3. Lâimposture de lâidĂ©e mĂȘme des rĂ©volutions arabes

4. Sous produit de la Mondialisation, le djihadisme planĂ©taire a gĂ©nĂ©rĂ© un** Islam anthropophage**

**Golias : Pourquoi ce livre ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :**Â Lâemballement pour lâUkraine en 2022 a Ă©tĂ© Ă la mesure de la **dĂ©testation de la France pour la Syrie en 2011 **et surtout du mutisme assourdissant de la sphĂšre occidentale Ă lâĂ©gard du** YĂ©men,** le plus pauvre pays arabe depuis 2015.

Ce fait a induit en moi une rĂ©flexion profonde sur la nature des ressorts psychologiques de la sociĂ©tĂ© franĂ§aise face aux Ă©vĂ©nements majeures de lâHistoire contemporaine.

Mieux, si lâOccident sâest mobilisĂ© pour livrer des armes Ă lâUkraine agressĂ©e, il sâĂ©tait mobilisĂ©, en sens inverse, via son alliance avec la Turquie et le Qatar, pour expĂ©dier des milliers de terroristes islamistes en Syrie, agressĂ©, lui, par une coalition islamo-atlantiste.

Pis, au YĂ©men, lâOTAN a envoyĂ© des armes â non au YĂ©men agressĂ© â, mais aux** pĂ©tromonarchies**, ses agresseurs en une belle illustration de la distorsion mentale et morale des Â« grandes dĂ©mocraties occidentales Â».

Pour mĂ©moire, lâOccident, et plus prĂ©cisĂ©ment, la France et les Ătats-Unis se sont impliquĂ©s directement dans ce massacre qui a fait jusquâĂ prĂ©sent plus de **250 000 victimes civiles yĂ©mĂ©nites.**

Selon lâenquĂȘte du mĂ©dia indĂ©pendant **Disclose**, et ses rĂ©vĂ©lations sur les ventes dâarmes, la France a ainsi fourni plus de **132 canons dâartillerie Caesar et 70 chars Leclerc ultra modernes qui ont Ă©tĂ© dirigĂ©s vers la frontiĂšre yĂ©mĂ©nite,** dĂšs leur rĂ©ception.

De surcroĂźt deux frĂ©gates franĂ§aises participent au **blocus naval **qui affame plusieurs millions de YĂ©mĂ©nites.

Il est vrai que lâArabie saoudite et les Ămirats arabes unis relĂšvent de Â« lâIslam des lumiĂšres Â», thĂ©orisĂ© par le philosophe du botulisme **Bernard Henry LĂ©vy **et par extension **appartiennent au Â« camp du bien Â», normalisateur avec IsraĂ«l,** et non Ă Â« lâaxe du mal Â», selon la dĂ©finition de George Bush Jr.

Journaliste de profession, qui plus est dans une institution,** lâAgence France Presse**, oĂč la fantaisie est rarement de mise, je me suis appliquĂ© la mĂȘme approche mĂ©thodologique que celle Ă laquelle je mâĂ©tais astreint du temps de lâexercice de mon activitĂ©.

Une lecture fractale de lâHistoire mâa conduit Ă des conclusions ahurissantes.

Une lecture fractale est une approche diatonique qui combine lâespace et le temps, **lâhistoire et la gĂ©ographie, une lecture radicale en somme**, qui ne signifie nullement une lecture extrĂ©miste, mais une lecture qui **consiste Ă prendre les choses par la racine.**

**Golias : Quelles sont les conclusions de cette approche ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :Â 1Ăšre conclusion**

Au survol dâun siĂšcle, **la France (mandated western power after WW1 over Turkey and Syria) aura amputĂ© la Syrie Ă trois reprises** :

**Du Liban, pour en faire un fief maronite**sous couvert de coexistence islamo-chrĂ©tienne ; du**District dâAlexandrette**, pour en faire un cadeau Ă la Turquie, son ennemi de la 1Ăšre Guerre Mondiale, sans doute au titre de**gratification pour le gĂ©nocide des ArmĂ©niens,**quand bien mĂȘme, la France, se pose, paradoxalement, en tant que Â« Protectrice des chrĂ©tiens dâOrient Â» ;

3. La 3Ăšme fois, au XXIe siĂšcle, Ă lâoccasion de la sĂ©quence dite du Â« **Printemps arabe** Â», en sâassociant Ă nouveau avec le prĂ©sident islamiste de la Turquie, elle, Â« le pays de la laĂŻcitĂ© Â», pour dĂ©truire la Syrie, ce pays anciennement sous son mandat, et y amĂ©nager **une zone autonome kurde Ă Raqqa**, dans le Nord Est de la Syrie.

Trois fois en un siĂšcle.

Cette **fixation obsessionnelle** rĂ©vĂšle un rare cas de psychiatrie exacerbĂ© Ă lâĂ©gard dâun pays quâelle sâest acharnĂ©e Ă rĂ©duire Ă sa portion congrue, alors quâelle **se proposait au dĂ©part dâen faire Â« une Grande Syrie **Â», Ă en juger par les instructions **dâAristide Briand, Ă son nĂ©gociateur Georges Picot**.

**En Syrie, le projet franĂ§ais ne manquait pourtant ni dâaudace ni de grandeur. La France se proposait de constituer une Â« Grande Syrie Â» englobant JĂ©rusalem BethlĂ©em, Beyrouth, Damas, Alep, Van, Diyarbakir, jusque mĂȘme Mossoul, câest Ă dire un territoire englobant la Syrie, une partie du Liban, de la Palestine, de la Turquie et le nord kurdophone dâIrak.**

Face aux habiles nĂ©gociateurs anglais, la Syrie, du fait de la France et contrairement Ă ses promesses, a Ă©tĂ© rĂ©duite Ă sa portion congrue au prix dâune **quadruple amputation**, dĂ©lestĂ©e non seulement de tous les territoires pĂ©riphĂ©riques (Palestine, Liban, Turquie et Irak), mais Ă©galement amputĂ©e dans son propre territoire national du district dâAlexandrette.

(Cf Ă ce propos Paris 2 novembre 1915 (Archives du ministĂšre des affaires Ă©trangĂšres) Instructions dâAristide Briand, ministre des Affaires Ă©trangĂšres (1862-1932) Ă Georges Picot, consul de France Ă Beyrouth.

Document publiĂ© dans Â« Atlas du Monde arabe gĂ©opolitique et sociĂ©tĂ© Â» par **Philippe Fargues **et Rafic Boustany, prĂ©face de Maxime Rodinson (Ăditions Bordas)).

**2Ăšme conclusion : La France est un pays qui pratique la Â« fuite en avant Â»**

**La France pratique une fuite en avant pour se dĂ©gager dâun examen critique prĂ©judiciable Ă son orgueil propre national : La dĂ©faite de Sedan (1870) a dĂ©bouchĂ© sur la proclamation de la IIIe RĂ©publique, la capitulation de Retondes (1940) sur la IVe RĂ©publique ; La capitulation de Dien Bien Phu (1954) sur la Ve RĂ©publique.**

Cet Ă©vitement de responsabilitĂ© explique les rĂ©cidives franĂ§aises.

Une lecture fractale de lâhistoire de France donnerait le bilan suivant : Unique grand pays europĂ©en Ă lâarticulation majeure **des deux Â« penchants criminels de lâEurope dĂ©mocratique **Â», â

- la traite nĂ©griĂšre et le gĂ©nocide hitlĂ©rien -,
- la France est aussi le seul pays au monde Ă exiger dâune de ses colonies
**une indemnitĂ© compensatoire Ă la rĂ©trocession de son indĂ©pendance (HaĂŻti).** - Bref : Le seul pays au monde dont le comportement erratique est aux antipodes de la rationalitĂ© cartĂ©sienne dont il se revendique.

**3Ăšme conclusion : La France est un pays de la bravache et de la fanfaronnade.**

Lors du dĂ©clenchement de la IIĂšme Guerre mondiale : le cri de ralliement des FranĂ§ais Ă©tait Â« Nous vaincrons parce que nous sommes les plus forts Â», quand Winston Churchill, le premier ministre britannique, promettait Ă son peuple Â« des larmes, des sueurs et du sang Â».

RĂ©sultat, les **FranĂ§ais ont capitulĂ© aprĂšs neuf mois de combat, **quand le Royaume-Uni servait de plate-forme Ă la reconquĂȘte de lâEurope et sa libĂ©ration de lâAllemagne Nazie.

La France a perdu de ce fait son statut de grande puissance, selon lâhistorien **Marcel Gauchet**.

Elle nâa pas Ă©tĂ© repĂȘchĂ© que **grĂące Ă son empire franĂ§ais, **perdu depuis lors, et par la volontĂ© des Ătats Unis de disposer dâune base territoriale en Europe Occidentale Ă lâapogĂ©e de la guerre froide soviĂ©to-amĂ©ricaine.

**DE LâINANITĂ DU DISCOURS PERFORMATIF FRANĂAIS**

Un discours performatif est un discours crĂ©ateur de droit.

Les FranĂ§ais en sont des adeptes convaincus, sâimaginant quâil suffit dâaffirmer pĂ©remptoire quâils sont les meilleurs pour lâĂȘtre.

MĂȘme schĂ©ma en Syrie : Â« Bachar devait tomber tous les quinze jours Â»âŠ

RĂ©sultat des courses, Nicolas Sarkozy et FranĂ§ois Hollande ont quittĂ© la scĂšne politique, leurs deux ministres des Affaires Ă©trangĂšres **Alain JuppĂ©** (post gaulliste) et** Laurent Fabius** (post socialiste), Ă lâorigine de prestations calamiteuses Ă leur passage au Quai dâOrsay, **se trouvent, eux, promus au prestigieux Conseil constitutionnel,** en phase de congĂ©lation avancĂ©e.

DrĂŽle de promotion, sans doute au mĂ©rite, qui explique la dĂ©saffection de plus en plus grande des FranĂ§ais envers la chose publique.

Au terme dâune double dĂ©cennie calamiteuse, le pays de la laĂŻcitĂ© et de la loi sur le sĂ©paratisme apparaĂźt ainsi comme le **grand perdant de la mondialisation, **le grand perdant de lâeuropĂ©anisation du continent sous lâĂ©gide de lâAllemagne, le grand perdant de la bataille de Syrie, de Libye et de CrimĂ©e, le grand perdant de la pandĂ©mie du Covid et de lâAfrique.

Un bilan dâautant plus consternant que la France est ainsi le seul pays membre permanent du Conseil de sĂ©curitĂ© Ă **nâavoir pas rĂ©ussi Ă produire un vaccin contre le Covid, **alors quâun petit pays de lâimportance de Cuba a pu rĂ©aliser cet exploit. Câest dire lâampleur de la dĂ©confiture.

De surcroĂźt, sur le plan international, ses alliĂ©s historiques, â les Ătats Unis et le Royaume Uni -, lui ont administrĂ© une gifle magistrale dans la transaction des sous marins australiens et la conclusion de lâalliance Aukus, lâexcluant du Pacifique, la ravalant au rang de puissance moyenne, alors que la France, dĂ©jĂ relĂ©guĂ©e au rang de pays affinitaire en Syrie, **est en phase du retrait du Mali,** signe indiscutable de son essoufflement.

Avanie supplĂ©mentaire, **la France est dĂ©sormais supplantĂ©e par la Russie dans son rĂŽle de protection des minoritĂ©s chrĂ©tiennes dâOrient.**

Â« Câest depuis Damas que Vladimir Poutine a entamĂ© sa reconquĂȘte du statut de superpuissance et dâinterlocuteur incontournableâŠ **Câest Damas qui dĂ©tient la clĂ© de maison Russie**âŠ

La grande Syrie est partie intĂ©grante du grand ensemble orthodoxe allant de lâOrient aux Balkans et Ă la Russie.

Â« Câest cette perception historique qui a amenĂ© la Russie actuelle Ă reprendre au pays du Cham (Bilad As Sham) le flambeau â que les FranĂ§ais lui ont longtemps disputĂ© â de la Â« protection des chrĂ©tiens Â» Â», assĂ©nera **Michel Raimbaud**, ancien ambassadeur de France, aux hiĂ©rarques nĂ©o-conservateurs du Quai dâOrsay dans son ouvrage **Â« Les guerres de Syrie Â»,** dĂ©pitĂ© de la dĂ©gradation de son pays du rĂŽle de Â« chef de file de la coalition internationale de la guerre de Syrie Â» au rĂŽle dâÂ« affinitaire Â».

La France est Ă un tournant de son histoire et opĂšre ce virage de maniĂšre erratique, naviguant Ă vue en parant au plus pressĂ©.

Ă nây prendre garde, elle risque un **phĂ©nomĂšne dâhystĂ©rĂ©sis, un astre, brillant certes, mais Ă©teintâŠ brillant uniquement dans lâimaginaire de ses anciens admirateurs, au titre du fantasme.**

**Golias : Quel jugement portez vous sur les bi-nationaux franco- syriens ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :**Â Au vu de la lecture de ce bilan, les bi-nationaux franco-syriens devaient ĂȘtre terriblement assoiffĂ©s de notoriĂ©tĂ©, gorgĂ©s dâune grande vanitĂ© et dâune non moins grande cupiditĂ© pour se prĂȘter Ă un tel simulacre, qui demeurera une **tĂąche indĂ©lĂ©bile dans leur conscience**.

Pensaient-ils vraiment, ces paons, peser sur le cours du conflit.

**Ces expatriĂ©s pathĂ©tiques, sans aucune attache militante, sans la moindre tradition de lutte sur le terrain. Ces bureaucrates se sont rĂ©vĂ©lĂ©s tout au plus des pantins. Leur sommeil doit ĂȘtre trĂšs agitĂ©, encore plus agitĂ© quand ils songent Ă lâaccablement dont ils auront gratifiĂ© de leur ignominie, leur progĂ©niture pour les gĂ©nĂ©rations Ă venir.**

TrĂšs franchement entre la **triplette constituĂ©e par le prĂ©sident Bachar Al Assad, son ministre des Affaires Ă©trangĂšres Walid al Mouallem et Bachar Al Jaafari,** lâambassadeur de Syrie Ă lâONU et les tĂȘtards polymorphes mercenaires de lâ**opposition off shore pĂ©tromonarchique**âŠ Â« Yâavait pas photo Â».

Le pouvoir syrien avait une parfaite maĂźtrise des rapports de force internationaux et une solide connaissance des dossiers quand lâopposition off shore, y compris des universitaires franĂ§ais du calibre de **Bourhane Ghalioune et Basma Kodmani, ou Ahmad Sida et Riad Hijab **fonctionnaient Ă la maniĂšre dâautomates au ressort mal remontĂ©.

Pis ; SpĂ©cialiste des Relations Internationales, **Basma Kodmani** sâest appliquĂ©e durant la durĂ©e de sa brĂšve mandature au porte parolat de lâopposition offshore syrienne, Ă rĂ©clamer lâapplication du Chapitre VII de la Charte des Nations unies sur la Syrie, autorisant lâusage de la force contre son pays dâorigine, ignorant gravement le fait que cette instance onusienne abritait deux pays alliĂ©s de poids de la Syrie, la Russie et la Chine, disposant du droit de veto.

La fonction dâun binational nâest pas dâĂȘtre le porte-voix de son pays dâaccueil, ni son porte-serviette, mais dâassumer avec vigueur la fonction dâinterface exigeant et critique.

Un garde-fou Ă des dĂ©bordements prĂ©judiciables tant du pays dâorigine que du pays dâaccueil.

Dans lâintĂ©rĂȘt bien compris des deux camps, le partenariat bi-national se doit de se faire, sur un pied dâĂ©galitĂ© et non sur un rapport de subordination de lâancien colonisĂ©, le faisant apparaĂźtre comme le supplĂ©tif de son ancien colonisateur en ce que lâalliance du Faible au Fort tourne toujours Ă lâavantage du Plus Fort.

De la mĂȘme maniĂšre, le devoir dâun intellectuel arabe et musulman dans la sociĂ©tĂ© occidentale est de faire conjuguer Islam et progressisme et non de provoquer une abdication intellectuelle devant un islamisme basique, invariablement placĂ© sous les fourches caudines israĂ©lo-amĂ©ricaines.

**Golias : Comment analysez vous le comportement de la presse franĂ§aise dans la couverture de la guerre de Syrie ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :**Â Les journaux jadis de rĂ©fĂ©rence ont fait office dâamplificateurs des thĂšses du pouvoir dans la grande tradition des rĂ©gimes autocratiques quâils dĂ©noncent avec vĂ©hĂ©mence par ailleurs.

Ainsi le** Journal LibĂ©ration **se distinguera par **deux bĂ©vues monumentales**, commises prĂ©cisĂ©ment par son spĂ©cialiste maison, soutenu par sa bĂ©quille syrienne de service, en annonĂ§ant coup sur coup, lâĂ©viction du gĂ©nĂ©ral **Ali Mamlouk,** responsable de lâappareil sĂ©curitaire du Syrien, et surtout la qualification dâun chef de lâopposition mercenaire pĂ©tro monarchique, Riad Hijab comme un Â« homme de taille Â», alors quâil sâagissait tout bonnement dâun Â« homme de paille Â».

Quant au **Journal Le Monde,** il a transformĂ© ses **colonnes en meurtriĂšres** y logeant des **blogs toxiques et fantaisistes, tel Nabil Ennsari,** un islamiste qatarophile marocain, qui noircira des pages entiĂšres du journal de dĂ©fĂ©rence sur les turpitudes du prĂ©sident syrien, **mais ne pipera mot sur les ignominies de son Roi du Maroc,** dont la thĂšse, comme de juste, a portĂ© sur le Mufti de lâOTAN, le millionnaire, **Youssef Al Qaradawi**, lâhomme qui passera dans lâhistoire pour **avoir abjurer lâOTAN de bombarder la Syrie, un pays qui Ă livrĂ© trois guerres contre IsraĂ«l. **

Jamais Le Monde nâa enjoint Ă son digitaliste islamiste de publier une enquĂȘte, voire mĂȘme une information sur ce** Â« Royaume du bagne et de terreur Â» quâest le Maroc.**

Une deuxiĂšme meurtriĂšre Ă©tait animĂ©e par un **Â« Ćil borgne sur la Syrie Â»**, en raison de sa vision hĂ©miplĂ©gique du conflit :

I**gnace Leverrier**, ancien chiffreur de lâambassade de France Ă Damas, dĂ©masquĂ© depuis longtemps depuis Beyrouth et **dĂ©signĂ© sous le sobriquet dâAl Kazzaz** pour ridiculiser son camouflage.

De son vrai nom, **Pierre Vladimir Glassman,** le blogueur du Monde signait sous le pseudonyme de la traduction franĂ§aise de son nom patronymique Leverrier pour Glassman, ce qui a donnĂ© en arabe Â« Al Kazzaz Â».

Les FranĂ§ais sâimaginent ĂȘtre plus malin que les autres. (**The British intelligence services did worse activities in Syria, but executed its criminal activities in secrecy)**

Mieux : Trois anciens rĂ©sidents franĂ§ais Ă Damas Ă©taient aux avant postes de la guerre mĂ©diatique, faux nez de lâadministration.

Outre Pierre Vladimir Glassman, **lâineffable FranĂ§ois Burgat,** ancien Directeur de lâInstitut FranĂ§ais pour le Proche Orient, qui glanera le sobriquet de M. BURQA, en raison de ses ĆillĂšres idĂ©ologiques ;

Enfin **Jean Pierre Filiu,** cĂ©lĂšbre pour son Â« Ă©pectase sur le chemin de Damas Â», qui passera Ă la postĂ©ritĂ© pour **avoir comparĂ© la guerre de Syrie Ă la guerre dâEspagne**, confondant les Â« Brigades Internationales Â» animĂ©e dâun idĂ©al rĂ©publicain, disposĂ© Ă mourir pour dĂ©fendre la RĂ©publique et lâinstauration dâun Califat rĂ©trograde par des mercenaires terroristes shootĂ©s au captagon, ignorant par lĂ -mĂȘme que Â« mourir pour Teruel faisait sens, sâensauvager Ă Raqqa un contre sens Â».

**Golias : La Syrie a Ă©tĂ© le premier pays Ă reconnaĂźtre lâIndĂ©pendance du Donbass en Ukraine, pourquoi un tel un empressement ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :** Un empressement qui se prĂ©sente comme une rĂ©ponse du berger Ă la bergĂšre.

La Syrie, emboĂźtant le pas Ă la Russie, son sauveur, a Ă©tĂ© en effet le premier pays Ă reconnaĂźtre lâindĂ©pendance de deux provinces sĂ©paratistes russophones dâUkraine (province de Donetsk et de Lougansk), le 22 FĂ©vrier 2022.

Une dĂ©cision qui apparaĂźt comme une rĂ©plique lointaine Ă **lâoccupation de facto par les Ătats Unis du Nord-est de la Syrie **; des encouragements des AmĂ©ricains Ă une sĂ©cession kurde de cette zone pĂ©trolifĂšre ;

Enfin Ă lâamĂ©nagement dans **le secteur dâIdlib,** sous contrĂŽle de la Turquie, dâun rebut pour les jihadistes refoulĂ©s des autres provinces de Syrie, avec lâaccord tacite de Washington.

La France, prĂ©sident en exercice de lâUnion europĂ©enne, pour le 1er semestre 2022, a reĂ§u de plein fouet ces deux camouflets diplomatiques (lâannexion du Donbass et sa reconnaissance par la Syrie), alors quâelle battait en retraite au Nord-Mali, abandonnant en douceur son projet de crĂ©ation dâun Ătat kurde dans la province de Raqqa, dans le Nord de la Syrie.

**Le prĂ©cĂ©dent prĂ©sident franĂ§ais de lâUnion europĂ©enne, Nicolas Sarkozy, avait essuyĂ© pareille dĂ©convenue en GĂ©orgie, le 8 AoĂ»t 2008, avec lâannexion de lâAbkhazie et de lâOssĂ©tie du sud.**

Lâhumiliation est cuisante pour la France en ce que la reconnaissance du Donbass par la Syrie sâest doublĂ©e dâune **visite du prĂ©sident Bachar Al Assad Ă Abou Dhabi,** le 20 mars 2022, premiĂšre visite du prĂ©sident syrien Ă un pays arabe depuis la guerre dĂ©clenchĂ©e par la coalition islamo-atlantiste contre son pays, il y a douze ans.

Une humiliation dâautant plus cuisante que **cet Ămirat est protĂ©gĂ© par une base franĂ§aise,** lâennemie irrĂ©ductible du syrien que la presse franĂ§aise qualifie de Â« Bachar Â» avec une dĂ©sobligeance qui masque mal le dĂ©pit haineux dâun vaincu.

Ăpilogue de cette Ă©preuve de force, lâhĂ©gĂ©monie israĂ©lo-amĂ©ricaine sur le Moyen Orient nâest plus ce quâelle Ă©tait, ni la vigueur des contestataires Ă lâimperium atlantisteâŠ.

Une parfaite illustration de lâadage selon lequel **la vengeance est un plat qui se mange froid.**

**Golias : Pourquoi tant de haine ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :**Â LâanimositĂ© rĂ©ciproque entre la France et la Syrie **remonte Ă la conquĂȘte de la Syrie et la bataille de Khan Maysalloune.**

La trahison de la France lors des nĂ©gociations Sykes Picot conduira le ministre syrien de la dĂ©fense, **Youssef Al Azmeh**, en personne, Ă prendre les armes contre les FranĂ§ais pour la conjurer Ă Khan Maysaloun (1920), dans laquelle il pĂ©rira **ainsi que prĂšs de 400 des siens dans la bataille fondatrice de la conscience nationale syrienne. **

Depuis lors la Syrie a tenu la dragĂ©e haute Ă la France sâopposant frontalement Ă toutes ses Ă©quipĂ©es en terre arabe.

La duplicitĂ© franĂ§aise et la voracitĂ© turque ont ainsi obĂ©rĂ© la crĂ©dibilitĂ© de lâopposition syrienne de lâextĂ©rieur dans sa contestation du rĂ©gime baasiste.

**Alexandrette,** au lendemain de la 1Ăšre Guerre mondiale, a constituĂ© la faille initiale, du fait franĂ§ais.

**La riposte oblique de la Syrie Ă la France sâest faite en trois temps. **

Un des plus cĂ©lĂšbres non dit de la diplomatie syrienne, lâamputation du district dâAlexandrette, a constituĂ© une blessure secrĂšte qui a servi de moteur Ă la revendication nationaliste syrienne pendant une large partie du XXe siĂšcle au point que Damas a longtemps refusĂ© de constituer un groupe dâamitiĂ© France-Syrie Ă lâAssemblĂ©e du peuple syrien.

La Syrie aura lâoccasion de rendre la monnaie de sa piĂšce Ă la France, dans une riposte oblique en trois temps :

1. La premiĂšre fois,** lors de la guerre dâindĂ©pendance de lâAlgĂ©rie, **prĂ©cisĂ©ment, dans le prolongement de lâhospitalitĂ© accordĂ©e au chef nationaliste algĂ©rien **Abdel Kader Al DjazaĂŻri**. Le **premier groupe de volontaires arabes Ă rallier la RĂ©volution algĂ©rienne **a Ă©tĂ© un groupe de baasistes syriens mus par un sentiment de solidaritĂ© pan-arabe, parmi lesquels figuraient **Noureddine Atassi**, futur prĂ©sident de la rĂ©publique, et, **Youssef Al Zouayen**, futur ministre des Affaires Ă©trangĂšres, qui trouveront dâailleurs, tous les deux, asile en AlgĂ©rie Ă leur Ă©viction du pouvoir.

2. La deuxiĂšme fois, avec lâalliance de revers conclue entre **la Syrie et lâIran durant la guerre Irak-Iran** de la dĂ©cennie 1980, prenant en tenaille lâIrak soutenu par la France au point se hisser au rang de cobelligĂ©rant.

3. La troisiĂšme fois : Dernier et non le moindre de la riposte subliminale de la Syrie Ă la France aura Ă©tĂ© le fait dâavoir fait **office de verrou arabe du Liban au grand dam de la France**, et surtout de constituer la **principale voie de ravitaillement stratĂ©gique du Hezbollah libanais,** le cauchemar absolu dâIsraĂ«l, de lâOTAN et des pĂ©tromonarchies rĂ©unis.

Au delĂ de la solidaritĂ© tĂ©moignĂ©e lors de la guerre dâindĂ©pendance de lâAlgĂ©rie, la Syrie et lâAlgĂ©rie sont les deux principaux pivots de la prĂ©sence russo-chinoise en MĂ©diterranĂ©e sur le flanc sud de lâOTAN.

**Lâaxe Damas-Alger,** aux deux extrĂ©mitĂ©s de la Mer MĂ©diterranĂ©e, constitue le centre de gravitĂ© pĂ©renne du militantisme arabe pro-palestinien, depuis la dĂ©fection de lâĂgypte et sa cavalcade solitaire vers la paix avec IsraĂ«l.

De surcroĂźt, lâAlgĂ©rie et la Syrie sont les deux pays arabes, â avec le Liban du fait de la prĂ©sence du Hezbollah â Ă mener une politique Ă©trangĂšre qui prĂ©serve les intĂ©rĂȘts Ă long terme du Monde arabe, et, Ă ce titre, partenaires privilĂ©giĂ©s des grandes puissances contestataires Ă lâordre hĂ©gĂ©monique occidentale la Chine, La Russie, lâIran, et, lâAfrique du Sud pour le continent noir.

**Lors de la guerre de Syrie, pas un terroriste algĂ©rien ne sâest rendu depuis lâAlgĂ©rie pour combattre la Syrie, de lâaveu dâun des opposants de premiĂšre heure au rĂ©gime baasiste. **

Lâaffaire avait Ă©tĂ© fermement verrouillĂ©e par les appareils sĂ©curitaires des deux pays.

Les rares islamistes algĂ©riens qui avaient combattu en Syrie sont des **AlgĂ©riens de la diaspora**, tout comme ceux qui ont commis des actes terroristes dans les pays occidentaux sont des **algĂ©riens titulaires dâune double nationalitĂ© **que cela soit les **FrĂšres Kouachi** (attentat de Charlie hebdo), **Hedi Nemmouche **(geĂŽlier dâotages franĂ§ais dans le nord de la Syrie) ou mĂȘme **Mohamad Merah** (Toulouse).

LâAlgĂ©rie a effectuĂ© un retour remarquable sur la scĂšne diplomatique internationale en obtenant, en tandem avec lâAfrique du Sud, **la suspension dâIsraĂ«l du statut dâobservateur au sein de lâUnion africaine, **formant dans la foulĂ©e une task force avec lâAfrique du Sud, le NigĂ©ria et lâĂthiopie pour prĂ©venir des turbulences futures au sein de lâorganisation africaine.

**Golias : Quelles conclusions tirer-vous de cette dĂ©cennie de guerre ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :** Au terme de sĂ©quence dĂ©cennale, la dĂ©mocratie nâa cessĂ© de rĂ©gresser dans le Monde arabe, entrant dans une Ăšre de glaciation, de mĂȘme que lâidĂ©e mĂȘme de dĂ©mocratie, du fait dâune triple imposture :

**Lâimposture des grandes dĂ©mocraties occidentales,**

**Lâimposture de lâidĂ©e mĂȘme des rĂ©volutions arabes.**

**Lâimposture dâune fraction importante des dĂ©mocrates arabes, particuliĂšrement les dissidents de la vieille garde : Abdel Halim Khaddam, un laquais qui mĂ©rite bien son nom, Mouncef Marzouki (Tunisie), Azmi Bishara (Palestine), Michel Kilo et Borhan Ghalioune (Syrie), enfin Walid Joumblatt (Liban). **

Sans oublier **Tawakol Karman,** Prix Nobel de la Paix 2011, la plus grande escroquerie intellectuelle et morale du Printemps arabe.

PremiĂšre femme arabe et deuxiĂšme femme musulmane (aprĂšs Shirine Ebadi â Iran en 2003) Ă ĂȘtre nobĂ©lisĂ©e, la yĂ©mĂ©nite Tawakol Karman constitue une imposture ambulante.

**SĆur de Safa Karman, **journaliste Ă Al Jazeera, la chaĂźne transfrontiĂšre arabe du Qatar, chef de file de la contre rĂ©volution nĂ©o-islamiste dans le Monde arabe, cette activiste est en fait **membre du Parti Al Islah, la branche yĂ©mĂ©nite de la confrĂ©rie des FrĂšres musulmans et son ONG Â« Women Journalist Without** Chains Â» Ă©margeait sur le budget de la **National Endowement for Democracy, la NED**, fondĂ©e en 1983 par le prĂ©sident ultra-conservateur **amĂ©ricain Ronald Reagan**.

Un sous-marin de lâadministration amĂ©ricaine en somme.

Une telle stratĂ©gie aberrante a dĂ©bouchĂ© sur la rĂ©gression de la dĂ©mocratie dans le Monde arabe, la rĂ©gression de lâidĂ©e mĂȘme de dĂ©mocratie, perĂ§ue dĂ©sormais comme une machination de lâOccident pour perpĂ©tuer sa domination dans la zone.

Voire mĂȘme une rĂ©pulsion de lâOccident par les authentiques dĂ©mocrates arabes. Un contre sens stratĂ©gique absolu.

Consternant est le nombre invraisemblable dâArabes dont le cerveau a Ă©tĂ© virusĂ© par un islam toxique au point de se comporter en zombies criminogĂšnes, gĂ©nĂ©rant une islamophobie gĂ©nĂ©ralisĂ©e dans la sphĂšre occidentale, desservant au premier chef la cause quâils sont supposĂ©s servir, la cause de lâIslam dâabord, la cause de la Palestine, ensuite, la cause des Arabes enfin. Dans lâhistoire de lâhumanitĂ©, il est difficile de recenser pareille dĂ©flagration mentale.

**Golias : Votre bilan du djihadisme planĂ©taire est accablant. Pourquoi une telle sĂ©vĂ©ritĂ© ?**

**RenĂ© Naba :** Sous produit de la Mondialisation, le djihadisme planĂ©taire a gĂ©nĂ©rĂ© un Islam anthropophage.

Le bilan de la double dĂ©cennie du XXIe siĂšcle est Ă©loquent : **Les six Â« sales guerres **Â» de lâĂ©poque contemporaine sont situĂ©es dans la sphĂšre de lâOrganisation de la ConfĂ©rence islamique (Syrie, Irak, Afghanistan, Somalie YĂ©men et Libye) **gĂ©nĂ©rant 600 millions dâenfants musulmans pĂątissant de la pauvretĂ©, de la maladie, des privations et de lâabsence dâĂ©ducation,**

que 12 pays musulmans comptent le taux le plus Ă©levĂ© de mortalitĂ© infantile et que 60% des enfants nâaccĂšdent pas Ă la scolaritĂ© dans 17 pays musulmans,

alors, quâen contrechamps, les **dĂ©penses dâarmement des pays arabes se sont Ă©levĂ©s Ă 165 milliards de dollars **âŠ De quoi rĂ©habiliter lâensemble des pays arabes sinistrĂ©s par la guerre.

Sous produit de la Mondialisation, le djihadisme planĂ©taire a gĂ©nĂ©rĂ© un Islam anthropophage en ce que les victimes sont dans leur quasi-totalitĂ© des musulmans.

La psychiatrie arabe dispose lĂ dâun terrain dâobservation fertile. Elle devra un jour sâattacher prioritairement Ă interprĂ©ter cette** singuliĂšre prĂ©disposition des binationaux franco-syriens** Ă se dĂ©voyer pour une fonction supplĂ©tive de deux pays (France-Turquie) Ă lâorigine du dĂ©membrement de leur partie dâorigine, Alexandrette (Syrie) et de cautionner la destruction par leurs alliĂ©s du **MĂ©morial Ă©difiĂ© par les ArmĂ©niens en souvenir du gĂ©nocide turc Ă Deir Ez Zor.**

Les Arabes nâont pas vocation Ă ĂȘtre des Ă©ternels harkis, la force supplĂ©tive des guerres dâautodestruction du Monde arabe et de sa prĂ©dation Ă©conomique par le bloc atlantiste, ni Ă configurer leur pensĂ©e en fonction des besoins stratĂ©giques de leurs prescripteurs occidentaux.

LâintĂ©rĂȘt Ă long terme du Monde arabe nâest pas rĂ©ductible Ă la satisfaction des besoins Ă©nergĂ©tiques de lâĂ©conomie occidentale. En un mot, le Monde arabe nâa pas vocation Ă servir de dĂ©fouloir Ă la pathologie belliciste occidentale.

Loin dâĂȘtre un exercice jubilatoire de ma part, ce bilan se veut un cri dâalarme pour une prise de conscience en vue de bannir la morgue du dĂ©bat public franĂ§ais et procĂ©der Ă une analyse concrĂšte dâune situation concrĂšte afin de prĂ©venir de nouveaux dĂ©sastres.

**La dĂ©mocratie ne saurait ĂȘtre Ă sens unique, exclusivement dirigĂ©e contre les pays arabes Ă structure rĂ©publicaine.**
