They still build nice robots all along, more and more showing signs that one day they will surpass us! It is as if the practical spirit has had left the philosopher behind. It is almost obvious why. The world is always a practical place and if people were amazed by the fathers of the A-bomb back at the 50s they don’t have to be any more! Let them all eat black holes! We will keep our greed for better things. At least for as long as greed is still our better hidden motive. As the Indian said about our civilization “the One who is the Best, shall kill all the rest!”

(Lidar). Thanks.

Comment on Nuclear Confusion Versus Dead-End Certainty? by Henning Dekant http://wavewatching.net/2015/02/26/nuclear-confusion-versus-dead-end-certainty/#comment-82773 Thu, 05 Mar 2015 05:45:31 +0000 http://wavewatching.net/?p=3448#comment-82773 Certainly the Lockheed names gives this a lit of credence, but they kind of droped the ball on marketing and evangelizing this concept (too much hot air not enough substance), which is really odd for a company of that size and sophistication.

John wrote about this a while back.

Thanks:

Yet, this seems to be more substantial than many other exercises, so I am glad that you made me read it :-)

Fits well with Julian Barbour’s ideas that I find rather appealing (hope to get around to blog about this at some point).

At the bottom of the page, there are links of the paper on the ArXiv and in Physics Letters B. However, because one the authors is from Egypt, it will, most likely, be dismissed out of hand!. Hope the scientists will study it carefully before passing judgement. The paper is too technical and well over my head!. However, I do get the gist of this non-technical article: http://phys.org/news/2015-02-big-quantum-equation-universe.html

Way to ruin the moment.

Global warming deniers get me equally irritated, posing as being interested in the science while only serving an agenda.

Always get cranky when I have to deal with that.
