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.

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.

Patricia Burchat does the math, but that is the problem, not the solution.
To understand the universe what we have to do is recognize that energy, matter, space and time have discrete states and finite states. We’re using the wrong math.
Relativity is not reality. Relativity is a convenient mathematical illusion.
The following derivation of the law of equivalence, which has not been published before, has two advantages. Although it makes use of the principle of special relativity, it does not presume the formal machinery of the theory but uses only four modified laws (I hope it is not just sci-fi):
We now consider the following system.
Let the body B rest freely in space and time with respect to the system K0. Two complexes of radiation S, S’ each of energy E/2 durate in the positive and negative x0 direction respectively and are eventually absorbed by B. With this absorption the energy of B increases by E. The body stays at rest in space and time with respect to K0 by reasons of symmetry.
Where c is the velocity of light and e is the velocity of event.
Now we consider this same process with respect to the system K, which moves with respect to K0 with the constant distance-space velocity vd and time-space velocity vt in the negative Z0 direction. With respect to K the description of the process is as follows:
The body B moves in the positive z direction with distance velocity vd and time velocity vt. The two complexes of radiation now have directions with respect to K which make an angle a with the x axis. The law of light and event aberration states that in the first approximation a = ( c / e ) / vd * vt , where c is the velocity of light and e is the velocity of event. From the consideration with respect to K0 we know that the distance-space velocity and time-space velocity of B remains unchanged by the absorption of S and S’.
Now we apply the law of conservation of momentum and chromentum with respect to the z direction to our system in the coordinate frame K.
We now assume the law of conservation of momentum and chromentum and apply it with respect to the z direction. This gives the equation
This equation expresses the law of the equivalence of energy and mass and the nature of events as part of the complex of radiation. Since energy according to the usual definition leaves an additive constant free, we may choose the latter that
As a consequence of this equation there is no dark matter and the acceleration of matter in the universe is due to a transition from a distance singularity to a time singularity. Distance-space is observing exponential expansion.
Time-space is finite. Which leads to this:
Which bring us to my post on Singularity, Pluralarity and Lorentz Transformation
