"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

Relativity of Time is Uniquely Human

As far as time is associated with the biophysics of a perceptual apparatus it remains on the level of that which non-human species can attain. Thus the research usage of animals cited here. However, distinctly human time is radically relativistic in the sense of a progressive species of ever more dense cardinal infinite numbers that were first identified by Georg Cantor: the Transfinites.

This principle of the absolute division that sets humanity apart from all the other species inhabiting the biosphere is evidenced in ongoing technological revolutions that have put mankind on the brink of literally inhabiting other worlds through colonization and economic development of the resources of extra terrestrial bodies. As a particularly remarkable example of this consider China's plan to mine the moon's abundant supply of Helium 3 isotope for fuel for future nuclear fusion reactors.

Edward Snowden and the Unconstitutional Executive Order 12333

The truth is Executive Order 12333 which authorizes that American citizens shall be treated as enemy nationals for the undefined objective of protecting "national security" itself is unconstitutional, period. This is the preeminent issue here. The drip by drip erosion of our constitution has been ongoing for decades. In particular, I experienced the use of 12333 against the organization with which I was formerly affiliated, that headed by Lyndon LaRouche. When it got too close to the corridors of power with Reagan's adoption of the SDI, all proverbial hell broke loose against it, including a paramilitary style invasion of its headquarters.
At the time, LaRouche's investigation of this egregious attack by his political opponents uncovered the use of that very same 12333 that Snowden was questioning as a violation of the constitutionally protect right against unwarranted surveillance and entrapment of American citizens.

A Perspective on the Mind

The research on brain functioning as it correlates to experiential stimuli both in place and time is related to conformal mapping in synthetic geometry. The development of this type of geometry flows from the unique experiments that were achieved during the Florentine Renaissance by Brunelleschi and his acolytes.

This leads to a reflection upon a higher sort of historical memory in the distinctive human creative domain of mind. There are waves in human history that reflect periods of creative outbursts that can elevate society both materially and psychically. Such waves are characterized by forging a vital new solution or breakthrough to societal dilemmas.

But the sorts of breakthrough hearken back to lessons learned from the extended human consciousness over long stretches of time. Thus the memory for the rebirth of the Socratic dialog of ancient Athens. Those communicative social reasonings in Plato's dialogues uncovered for ancient Greece a crisis in human affairs over the incompatibility of human perfection with the oligarchic model of society. This was achieved through focus upon the potential infinite power of the human mind. Thus the breakthrough of Brunelleschi's "point at infinity" for geometrical and artistic perspective. The conformal mapping of the human mind in time and space occurred as the lessons from ancient Greece were applied to the travails of Renaissance Florence.

The Mind Is Not a Computer

The incessant popularization of the dogma of so-called computer scientists and neuro-biologists alike that intelligence is just the product of electro-chemical signals is simply put insane. The wretched ontology of this is merely a "modernist" rehashing of the "school" of the British radical empiricism of Locke, et al. that Leibniz devastatingly refuted point by point in his wonderful expose New Essays on Human Understanding

The problem is that today's supposed "scientific method" is also based upon this sort of nominalist drivel. To hysterically believe that the uniquely human mind is merely an assorted aggregation of a computer-like code of ones and zeros is anathema to the rightful perspective of our qualitatively unique position in the ongoing composition of universal development. It is amazing frankly that given such an overarching debilitating and insidious epistemology controlling most academic institutions that we have yet to exterminate ourselves. 

Thus do higher institutions of learning produce labile donkeys as this excellent cartoon ironically lampoons.

Reflection upon "Most distant massive galaxy cluster identified"

As the great Bernhard Riemann observed, on the scale of the nearly infinite, seeming causal constraints that govern our finite reality break down. This is so for the quantum world of the infinitesimal as well. For instance, how can it be that we detect both super massive black holes that are apparently sucking in whole stellar systems like the drain in a bathtub at the same time there that space itself is expanding through the so called cosmological constant? As for this newly discovered galaxy cluster, what is the force that holds them together? A super-super massive black hole?

Attempts to resolve such ironic anomalies through a grand unification theory by some sort of algebraic approach where we create the unknown parameters out of the strings of whole cloth is foolish. The real question is what sort of inherent potential is there in an evolving universe that allows for disparate yet interacting hierarchies of the inorganic, biophysical, and noetic. And in that particular context, what orientation should humanity adopt?

Because currently, we are being driven by patently suicidal impulses due to poor, mostly subconscious, choices regarding our belief of what constitutes human nature. Conversely, our destiny can be to conquer and tame such apparently chaotic cosmic and quantum forces for the benefit of our futurity. Or in the footsteps of Benjamin Franklin's gift of the lightning rod, our adopted mission must simply be to do The Good.

What Makes an Elite? A Reflection upon Immortality.

If the mind and soul is concentrated and oriented upon a mission to afford future generations a creative spark then this equates to a true character of happiness. And this is an uplifting quality which we all have in potential as uniquely human. That is the essence of our equality. In this way the ending of the Keats poem Ode on a Grecian Urn rings a clarion trumpet.:

Thou still unravish'd bride of quietness,
Thou foster-child of silence and slow time,
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme:
What leaf-fring'd legend haunts about thy shape
Of deities or mortals, or of both,
In Tempe or the dales of Arcady?
What men or gods are these? What maidens loth?
What mad pursuit? What struggle to escape?
What pipes and timbrels? What wild ecstasy?
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;
Not to the sensual ear, but, more endear'd,
Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone:
Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave
Thy song, nor ever can those trees be bare;
Bold Lover, never, never canst thou kiss,
Though winning near the goal yet, do not grieve;
She cannot fade, though thou hast not thy bliss,
For ever wilt thou love, and she be fair!

Ah, happy, happy boughs! that cannot shed
Your leaves, nor ever bid the Spring adieu;
And, happy melodist, unwearied,
For ever piping songs for ever new;
More happy love! more happy, happy love!
For ever warm and still to be enjoy'd,
For ever panting, and for ever young;
All breathing human passion far above,
That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and cloy'd,
A burning forehead, and a parching tongue.

Who are these coming to the sacrifice?
To what green altar, O mysterious priest,
Lead'st thou that heifer lowing at the skies,
And all her silken flanks with garlands drest?
What little town by river or sea shore,
Or mountain-built with peaceful citadel,
Is emptied of this folk, this pious morn?
And, little town, thy streets for evermore
Will silent be; and not a soul to tell
Why thou art desolate, can e'er return.

O Attic shape! Fair attitude! with brede
Of marble men and maidens overwrought,
With forest branches and the trodden weed;
Thou, silent form, dost tease us out of thought
As doth eternity: Cold Pastoral!
When old age shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,
"Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

Good versus Evil

What perspective do those hold who see the world stage as a perpetual source of chaos and calamity? It must by necessity be an apology for an imperium. A need for keeping the restive masses of humanity constantly at each others throats rather than at their real enemy. The "gods" must be honored and yet provide amusements amidst this veil of tears. Nothing really changes. It is pure illusion. There is an infinite empty space of society's ranks that allows for the rearrangement of titles like mere points on a grid that are meaningless in the end. This is the unspoken belief and "religion" that actuates the would be servitors of illusory financial power.

And yet there are those who would see and hear beauty amidst this most unnatural state of affairs. So thus Abraham Lincoln, William Shakespeare and Ludwig Van Beethoven's lives are as a beacon for the foolish few that would kick against the pricks. For in the end, what remains of our having lived but an example of a unremitting will to bequeath a mission to futurity that can finally overcome the insanity of worship of the graceless and execrable Mammon of the City of London and Wall Street? A will to discover and do the good, whatever the so-called odds of its attainment.
