"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

For Unto Us an Oligarch is Born

The rather vulgar mentality of being rich per se is but a pale imitation of your honest to goodness oligarch. Take the disgusting spectacle we endure from the cretins in the “infotainment” business gurgling and cooing over that monstrous relic of feudalism–the royal baby. He, whose thoroughly evil granddad Prince (of darkness) Phillip is wont to confess at the drop of a commoner’s hat that his most ardent desire is to be reincarnated as a deadly virus to cull the herd of the undesirables that are overpopulating his game preserves.
What kind of cult member must this otherwise normal seeming citizen in the news media be, I ask you? I think surely it must be of a zombie apocalyptic type so embraced these days. If Rip Van Winkle having been roused from his bowling match slumber these few centuries later, I’m sure he would perceive there having been no Revolution at all. King George redux and all bow down, old chap. A spot of tea?

If the People Telling Us What the "News" Is Were Merely Sane

If the people telling us what the "news" is were merely sane, we would not be expected to share their inane delight in shameless and embarrassing fawning over a relic of feudalism: a royal heir's birth. Instead we would be heralding a little noticed, yet potentially earth shattering scientific accomplishment which must have that royal extreme misanthrope chewing the rug (I mean the Queen's consort his royal heinous "I want to be reincarnated as a deadly virus to depopulate the globe" Prince (of darkness) Phillip. One billion people may have been rescued just now from the pestilential scourge of intestinal hookworm. A medical research team from the University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA has discovered an inexpensive treatment for this unnecessary plague that is insidiously and indiscriminately killing children through simple lack of sanitation in the most impoverished nations on this crisis ridden planet. These children's well being should be the subject of our paeans, for they are the proverbial "least of these" wherewith our moral fitness to survive will be adjudged, will we nil we. 

If we were not consumed by the besotted clown show daily regurgitated by a scandal mongering media, we might have noticed a salvo that nearly met its mark just yesterday in the House of Representatives: the amendment by Rep. Amash to prevent the NSA from unconstitutionally storing digital records on every American. 

And if we were not so deranged into the infantile make believe world that the love of money is a respectable career path, we would see the handwriting on the wall in the case of the merciless looting pension grab in the Detroit bankruptcy by the City of London royal financiers and their junior lapdog minions on Wall Street. Instead of woefully wringing our hands like a hapless chorus in classical Greek dramas over the "bail in" in Cyprus, we would take up arms and oppose these latter day oligarchs and end the reign of terror of a royal blot on human history and give to our modern day Caesars what they so richly deserve-- ignominious fall from power to do grievous harm to our most vulnerable citizens.

The Detroit Bankruptcy and the Cyprus Bail In

If dear reader you can comprehend why these two events separated by an ocean are in essence about the same systemic monetary collapse that the world is presently in the midst of, then you are head and shoulders above the sycophantic con artists known as academic economists these days. Please support the return of the late great Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Glass Steagall legislation.

More Good News Published this Week in Biophysics Research

The quiet accumulation of more and more evidence for Bernoulli's magnificent ordering principle of  least action in the biophysical realm is lawfully astonishing. This illustration for instance encapsulates the engine of cellular reproduction's ordering in the endoplasmic reticulum:
The geometry here is obviously reminiscent of a minimal surface the study of which Karl Gauss pioneered.

Another tantalizing hint of the ubiquity of solitonic biophysical phase space is introduced in the discovery of how myelin sheaths are generated along axons.
In particular, the notion that a torque is transmitted along the assemblage that enable this generation is very much in keeping with a model of a standing solitonic wave function.

The Fundamental Difference Between Edward Snowden and Benedict Arnold

The title of this post should induce a train of thought that cuts through the current soap opera circus exhibited by our press. If you consider that it was none other than Benjamin Franklin who stated that "No tyrannical society can long exist when it cannot control the flow of information," then the point of the comparison becomes more clear.

For we certainly are living in a controlled environment of "infotainment" as nightmarishly noxious in essence as any dystopia cooked up by the adherents of the Anglo Dutch East Indies conglomerate such as Jeremy Bentham, H.G. Wells, Bertrand Russell, or George Orwell.

But the most dangerous enemy of the great mission which established our liberty is shining a light upon the treachery which has nearly now extinguished that selected role of Franklin, Lincoln, and FDR. For since the creation of the proxy warfare we have been embroiled in by the would be Anglo Dutch elites and the creeping take down of our commitment to Eleanor Roosevelt's conception of human rights our citizenry has collectively turned and looked the other way and going along to get along.  But the time for living by the rationale of such a deal with the devil is fast subsiding dear readers.



Vernadsky, the Heliosphere, and Astrobiology

Perhaps it is possible that the very type of heliosphere surrounding a star's planetary system will be found to be another component of the habitability of one or more of its planets due to the protection afforded life forms from cosmic rays. This would extend the sort of nested evolutionary sequence of inter-relationships that Vladimir Vernadsky pioneered to heliosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, and noosphere.

This way of looking at evolution is in keeping with the true founder of modern scientific inquiry Nicholas of Cusa.
