Let us imagine a biofeedback machine where the three principles of mechanics are expressed in an alternative but quantitatively equivalent form, as in Weber’s force law (1846): instead of inertia, there is a zero sum of forces; instead of a constant force, the intensity of force depends on the environment; instead of simultaneity of action and reaction, there is a «retarded potential» and thus an internal, proper time of the system. The first remarkable difference between these principles and the more familiar ones is that they allow, to a certain extent, the interpolation of consciousness within its framework. The second is that it applies equally to point and extended bodies or events, rendering unnecessary crucial artifices supporting special relativity, general relativity, or quantum mechanics and making them incompatible with each other. The third is that it makes possible a conception of time different from those of physics and psychology.Continuar leyendo «A RETROPROGRESSIVE LOOPBACK»

ON THE INNER CONTROLER
«O Antaryamin! Indweller of our hearts, friend of the poor, protector of the helpless, purifier of the fallen. Forgive us our sins. Have mercy on us. Show us the simple path, the real way to the supreme abode of peace».
After the war, Norbert Wiener refused to work with military or government funds and that is to his credit, but today any scientist justifies himself by thinking that if he does not commit someone else will do it in his place; the excuse is too easy although it has a lot of truth in it. In any case, to compensate in some way for the general degradation the sciences have reached, a degradation whose extremes the father of cybernetics could hardly foresee, and the deleterious effect they have on the most varied orders of existence, something more than depriving this or another sector of our increasingly dubious and interchangeable contributions is needed.
Since 2020 it is no longer possible to ignore that fraud in the sciences affects the whole system and is consciously directed from above; because we are no longer talking about the simple control and selection of discourse, but about the omnipresent falsification and concealment of data, adulteration of explanations, and criminal practices that directly undermine the integrity of life and human dignity. Whoever tries to survive in this environment may delude himself into thinking that such misconduct does not affect his specific area of work, but even if that were true, his mere complicit silence demeans him. Corruption is not just a means, but an end in itself, the triumph for those who seek the destruction of any standard. Most are incapable of understanding the consequences of this destructive logic even if they are right in front of their eyes.Continuar leyendo «ON THE INNER CONTROLER»
We always have intimations to the measure of our capacity, even if we neglect them for the benefit of other more exchangeable and mundane currencies. When I was a child I dreaded Sunday evenings; something in me sensed the unfathomable mediocrity of the world of the elders and their dull flight from boredom. However I was never at odds with the dreamy grayness of the asphalt or with the implausible trees that cross it, and now I understand that discomfort came more than anything from not disposing of my own time, because those who do it always find ways to deceive themselves. Over the years, the Sunday evening has become the time of the week that I appreciate most, and although I rarely honor it as I would like, it still opens a window in my mind out of the wheel of repetition.Continuar leyendo «SUNDAY EVENING»
NAME, CONSCIOUSNESS AND NUMBER
A well-known mathematician said once that it would take a million years to understand prime numbers well, if ever. One should have asked him what he aspired to understand about prime numbers that could take that long. As far as I know, no mathematician has even asked the question why the prime numbers, being at the core of arithmetic, do not seem to have any importance in Nature —when yet the Riemann zeta function, so intimately linked to their structure, seems to be reflected in many different kinds of physical systems.Continuar leyendo «NAME, CONSCIOUSNESS AND NUMBER»
MORPHOLOGY AND INDIVIDUATION
If mathematics, physics, complexity theories and computer science continued to expand and cross-fertilize at the same rate as today for a thousand years, they still would not find the key to morphology; not even in two thousand years either. Perhaps this may give some idea of its value, although we all know that nothing can be found without actively searching for it. That is the point: the mentioned sciences already have their own momentum and inertia that nothing can change, only a creation of a new science from scratch could overcome without obstruction the deficiencies of its predecessors.Continuar leyendo «MORPHOLOGY AND INDIVIDUATION»
IRONY AND TRAGEDY IN THE RIEMANN HYPOTHESIS
Did you know this secret? The worst is that beauty is not only terrible, but also a mystery. God and the Devil fight in it, and their battlefield is the heart of man.
Mei Xiaochun published a paper 3 years ago in which he claimed that the Riemann hypothesis does not even make sense because there are already four serious inconsistencies in the 1859 text to begin with. In a later paper, he uses a standard method to prove that the Riemann zeta function does not have a single non-trivial zero. Zero zeros. Needless to recall that, according to the prevailing mathematical opinion, have been calculated billions of them.
Mei Xiaochun is not overcomplicating matters. The inconsistencies he talks about are very basic, they infringe even the very Cauchy-Riemann equations that are at the basis of complex analysis. I am not a mathematician and prefer to defer my judgment on the relevance of his arguments, but I think that, at the very least, they deserve an answer; though we are unlikely to find it anywhere. If some mathematician deigned to answer, surely he would say something like that the analytical continuation has principles that the author seems to ignore, but no one ignores that creating new principles out of convenience is the most elegant way of not having them.Continuar leyendo «IRONY AND TRAGEDY IN THE RIEMANN HYPOTHESIS»
The Multi-specialist, Mechanology and Fourth-Person Knowledge
This is an interview given recently for Ivan Stepanyan’s science and technology blog:
Why do you think science is going through a particularly critical time right now?
The different sciences are used to have periodic crises in their models, but now, as a faithful reflection of what is happening in our societies, the accumulated problems have reached an extreme point.Continuar leyendo «The Multi-specialist, Mechanology and Fourth-Person Knowledge»
Phase precession, geometric phase, synchronization and consciousness
Consciousness as the last stronghold
Some days ago I read a short passage by Geidar Dzhemal on the difference between knowledge and information. In it, the Russian author invoked the inviolability that the consciousness of the workers still had in Dickens’ time, when they «went home to sleep and in the night found the way back to their hearts”.Continuar leyendo «ZERO BALANCE»
THE 80/20 GAME AND THE ZION/BABYLON CODE
Most have heard of the 80/20 power law or Pareto principle that governs the distribution of wealth in the world: one-fifth of the population has four-fifths of the assets, but in turn one-fifth of that one-fifth owns 4/5 of the 4/5 (4% has 64%), and so on.Continuar leyendo «THE 80/20 GAME AND THE ZION/BABYLON CODE»
POLE OF DESTINY
Effects of climate change? We are the effect, or at least one of them. But we are not talking about the «greenhouse effect» or other concoctions forged and stirred up by the media. Instead we will talk about pole reversal in the solar system, in our planet, and even in our non-society; and most important of all, about reorientation with respect to the Principle.Continuar leyendo «POLE OF DESTINY»
METANOIA, CONTINUUM AND QUATERNITY
This is a translation of the final chapter of the essay “Espíritu del Cuaternario” (Quaternary Spirit)
After so many considerations on science we need to return to a more general perspective.
It was probably as a reaction against the intrinsic idealism of the trinitarian symbol that a number of thinkers of diverse orientation turned in the twentieth century, and especially after the post-war period, towards quaternary schemes as symbols of totality. Jung was maybe the first perceiving the need for this shift, followed later by such well-known authors as Heidegger with his earth-heaven-celestials-mortals quaternity, or the Schumacher of the magnificent «Guide for the Perplexed» with his fourfold field of knowledge: inner self, inner world, outer self, outer world, opposed two by two as determinants of experience, appearance, communication and science.Continuar leyendo «METANOIA, CONTINUUM AND QUATERNITY»
ASTRONOMY, ASTROLOGY AND ASTROPHYSICS
PHASE MEMORY, PARALLEL TRANSPORT AND FRAME OF REFERENCE
Theoretical physicist Nicolae Mazilu remarked that if astrology remains a blemished subject, it is because it has failed to correctly address the question of the reference frame and its proper transformations. Indeed, a person who was born on a specific date and time in a certain place continues to maintain the «inner clock» of his birth even if he moves to the most remote place on the globe. And on the other hand, for all those who are not familiar with the astrology complexities, it may seem absurd that the same planets, which in real time are in the same positions in the sky for everyone at the same location, can influence each person in a completely different manner, because each person is an ongoing peculiar microcosm.Continuar leyendo «ASTRONOMY, ASTROLOGY AND ASTROPHYSICS»
JEWS, CHRISTIANS AND PHOENICIANS (SATURN, JUPITER, MERCURY & MARS)
A different point of view
For once we are going to look for an extra-human and extra-social reference for some issues of our species, namely the so-called «Jewish question» and its relationship with other peoples, and in particular with the great empires. Appealing to a metahistorical element does not mean, of course, that we can dispense with interpretations that will always be highly subjective and human. In any case, I find it more than convenient to take a different angle for this poisoned subject.
Ancient cosmographies were much less complex than the present ones with their vast array of knowledge, but also less reductive. The seven «climates» under which peoples lived throughout the geography also had different influences and were under different poles of spiritual ascendancy; those climates and poles could be represented, in addition, by the seven planets, without the need to be confused with them: «the angel moves the star», it was said to allude to the remote potencies.Continuar leyendo «JEWS, CHRISTIANS AND PHOENICIANS (SATURN, JUPITER, MERCURY & MARS)»
STRIKE, POPULISM AND TECHNOCRACY
First things first, and rather than speculate about what may happen five or ten years from now, we need to look at the present. What is being tested now is to what extent the powerful are able to shape our perception of reality at will, and were we to believe mainstream media, it seems they are getting it.
We can only trust our instinct, and what my instinct tells me is we have to throw away the masks and go on general strike. Act in unison, not in that social distancing that they want to enforce to its last consequences. Everything else is calculated ambiguity, mediocrity and delirium, a worthless attempt to escape from what is happening right now.
This would be truly cathartic, and the crossing of supposedly contradictory gestures would short-circuit power and the ideological divisions that are at its service.Continuar leyendo «STRIKE, POPULISM AND TECHNOCRACY»
Art and theory of reversibility
According to the World Economic Forum that annually meets in Davos, «nothing ever will be the same» after the coronavirus. The Great Reset awaits us this impending 2021 and we only have to get on board.
How can we know when a change is definitive or merely occasional? How can we foresee if its consequences will be reversible or irreversible?
It is assumed that the miscalled «Spanish flu» of 1918-1919 was incomparably deadlier than this virus, and yet it vanished like a ghost in the memory of an entire generation which however could not forget the First World War and the Treaty of Versailles, or the crash of 29.
The great war and the crisis of the 1930s did have irreversible effects, which would lead to the world of 1945; but it is clear that the flu did not, and as soon as it stopped filling the news, it was little less than obliterated. Some say that the figures were inflated shamelessly to frighten the population and make them forget the terrible question of the responsibility of the conflict, which had met with the general opposition of the unions, and of any person able to evade the much more lethal war propaganda of the press.
Is globalization irreversible? Massive immigration from poor to rich countries? Emigration to the cities in most of the planet? The urban exodus in the United States? The split of this nation in two confronted societies? The flight from work? The «conquest» of rights that are often promoted and granted from above? The expropriation of techniques by technology that we call digitalization? Climate change? The hyper-concentration of capital? The corruption and decomposition of the social body? Civilization? Progress? Human domestication?Continuar leyendo «Art and theory of reversibility»
