Chapter: Mysticism | Part 1 – Qubits & Time Travel, Meditation & Contemplation

1. Qubits & Time Travel The RSA algorithm is used by modern computers to encrypt and decrypt messages. A complex mathematical operation, today’s computers could have started trying to crack it when the big bang began and still would not have managed to do so. It is believed that a quantum computer could break the RSA algorithm in a matter of minutes. We may have to wait a few minutes for the computer to spit out an answer, but...

Chapter: Climate Change | Part 3 – The Economics

1. Introduction While solar energy is the most abundant permanent energy resource there is, its use in renewable solar, wind, biomass, hydro and ocean energy production makes up less than 25% of total world energy consumption.

Chapter: Christianity | Excerpt 1- 2nd Coming, Religious Life

1. Welcome Back Christians who look forward to a second appearance of their Lord and Savior must ask why his return is essential to the veracity of their faith.

Were he to actually return in the flesh, as his faithful followers have looked forward to for twenty centuries, his identity...

Chapter: Society | Excerpts [Legal Entity/University Students]

Excerpt 1. Legal Entity and Social Fiction Nobody would willingly commit themselves to a lifetime of mind dulling, enforced drudgery.

Chapter: Science |  “Cogito, ergo sum.”  [Part 3]

1. “Cogito, ergo sum.” thing or other We live in two almost incompatible realities: the reality of our flesh and the reality of our mind. In our fleshly reality the sun travels through our sky in the day and the moon does so every night. In our mental reality we spin on our planetary axis and orbit the sun and the moon spins around us. This metaphor does more than illustrate the differences between our fleshly and mental...

Chapter: Science | If A, then B … Probably [Part 2]

[NOTE: This section is tediously technical and may induce drowsiness. The reader may safely pass over it and continue with the next. You will not lose track of the discussion.] Despite the recognition that every result is the outcome of multiple causes, a scientific experiment is designed to identify only one or a few causes. Eliminating variables delimits possible outcomes. The simple, causal proposition “If A, then B.” is the...

Chapter: Science | Introduction & Falsifiability | Part 1

1. INTRODUCTION The scientific mind is our finest instrument for interpreting and explaining the universe to us. Those lonely souls who labor a lifetime meticulously gathering, sorting and analyzing data deserve our thanks and praise. Few of us have the constitution needed to endure disappointment after heart-wrenching disappointment chasing a dream which only they can truly understand. Overall, it’s a very lonely life, lived in...

Chapter: Climate Change | Part 2 – The Science

1. Introduction The Inuit elders who live in the Canadian arctic say that the sun has changed its position in the sky. This is their way of alerting us that earth’s polar axis has shifted relative to the positions of the sun. Polar axis movements, wobbles, even reversals have been documented through scientific observations, historical records, legends and myths that originate in widely separated locations around the world. When the polar...

The Climes They Are A Changin’ | Climate Change Chapter Introduction

The application of mechanistic thinking on the grandest scale in human history is our rapidly growing global climate change movement. Like the proverbial iceberg with only a fraction of its weight visible above the surface and greatest mass hidden below view, this movement has many dimensions and moving parts: some visible, some not. Most visible is the massive amount of scientific findings readily available to public scrutiny and...
