The Constitution, The Candidates and The Christians

Of all the things that make me sick about the United States elections it is the bigotry of the religious electorate.  If interviewers for any job in the United States questioned the candidate about their religious beliefs the interviewers would have litigation and criminal charges laid against them for violating the potential employee’s constitutional rights.  However, we have a bunch of Christians who think they have the right to violate the constitutional rights of the candidates for the United States presidency.  In otherwords, this block of voters are criminals violating the highest laws of their country.  Perhaps it is time to arrest them wholesale and put them in concentration camps until they learn the laws of their land.  Perhaps it is time for another American civil war forcing the legislation of secularization.

Any politician running for political office should be judged on their determination to uphold the constitution of their constituency and their education and experience in handling the pragmatic responsibilities of their constituency.  Nothing else.

What we have now is a secular state being taken over by a religious sect, Christianity, which is no different and no less unjust than Islam and sharia law.

The presidential oath of office should be sworn on a copy of the United States Constitution not a collection of myths.

We are in a world where American Christianity and Mid-East Islam have now become the greatest threats to world peace and progress.

LHC Powers Up

On Wednesday 2008.09.10 the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) successfully sent a stream of particles around its circumference.

Great images of the device here.

Ten

With this diagram I am eating a considerable amount of my previous work with the icons as well as a few concepts.  The reason for this is I am discovering the logic behind interrogatives that are not commonly used that are essential in the logic of system design.  The first row is the interrogatives (questions).  “Whuch” is how much.  The second row are my rearranged icons.  The third row are my Greek terms for the solutions.

This new plug in for Firefox is a must have.  It takes the hypertext concept to the extreme limits.  Vannevar Bush would have been proud.

I found this presentation by Jonathan Drori to be a very welcome, but somewhat genteel exposition of the irrationality of the public and the educational system when it comes to our models of reality.  We do not teach our children that every model is just that, a model.  No one has a full grasp of reality.

There are five states of mind:  Chaotic, Hypersystemic, Systemic, Hyposystemic and Comatic.

I’d also like to use the same terms for the states of any system.

I think the mental health community would benefit by abandoning the old terms and adopt these.

Physics: Observer as a State

At Home In The Universe is a landmark piece of thinking by Stuart Kauffman from the Institute for Biocomplexity and Informatics at the University of Calgary, Canada.  Stuart through the application of Boolean networks, chaos theory, biology and biochemistry makes a profound hypothesis:  Life is a higher level of order achieved though a natural phase change.  In otherwords, the “observer” that Einstein kept out of his equations belongs there as every living thing exists as another state in the equation.  The observer is part of the cosmic system.

There were two things that I considered a crucial flaw in Stuarts work.  First, he talked about a three state system:

  1. The chaotic state
  2. The edge of chaotic state
  3. The ordered state

but he always looked at it as a two state system with the edge of chaotic state balancing on the singularity of the phase change between chaos and order.

This slavishness to a Boolean networks keeps him from seeing another, what I consider, obvious possibility.  Stuart’s light bulb metaphor should have trinary bulbs not binary bulbs–a trinary network.  Like a gas, liquid and solid–the three states of matter– there is a chaotic, ordered and inert state with life residing in the ordered state between two phase transitions (I wonder about how chaos theory would explain the plasma state).

I don’t know if his use of Boolean rules ever provided for this possibility.  It would have resolved many of the challenges he faced and documented in his book.

The second thing I wondered about is he regarded a tightly coupled system as chaotic and a loosely coupled system as ordered.  The logic seems backwards to me.  Is not a solid tightly coupled and orderly and a gaseous system loosely coupled and chaotic?  I will have to delve more deeply into the concepts of chaos theory before I agree.

As a final thought, we could take the six interrogatives and turn them into a new equation:

L * E = O * M * c ^ 2

Where L is Logic, E is Energy, O is Observer, M is Mass and c is the distance (d) light travels over time (t).

Logic would be defined as the rules that correctly describe the cosmic system.  Einstein referred to this logic as “The Old One”.  My hypothesis is our understanding of these rules, the logic of the observer, is a state as well.

Systema Framework Datatypes

A new insight that has come to me in working with the Systema Framework is the realization that datatypes are not chaotic or random.  Datatypes are specific to the column they are in.

  1. Logic is restricted to Text attributing the interrogative
  2. Organic is restricted to Integers attributing the cardinality
  3. Heuristic is restricted to Boolean attributing the paths or sets
  4. Pragmatic is restricted to Decimal attributing the metric
  5. Chronic is restricted to Datetime attributing the event
  6. Cosmic is restricted to Spatial attributing the node

The interesting thing is the framework is two dimensional.  This means that each of the six interrogatives is provided with each of the six datatypes in a structured fashion.

When you give this thought in this disciplined fashion, it becomes obvious that the Zachman Framework and the Systema Framework are inadequate to explain the complexity of datatypes we experience.  I will provide a solution in my next post.
