Objectivist Freethinkers

Not all atheists are intellectuals, not all intellectuals are atheists.

However, all "intellectual atheists" are intellectuals and atheists.

Also, all Objectivist Freethinkers are "Intellectual Atheists" but not all "Intellectual Atheists" are Objectivist Freethinkers. Objectivism means that there are two criteria to be met in order for belief....(1) there is sufficient objective evidence for supporting the claim and (2) there is derivation of rigorous logical proof. Intellectual atheism only requires the latter criteria, which is flimsy because the argument amounts to a logical proof whereby the initial terms can be defined independent of natural processes.

In short, somebody could define a logical proof for the existance or nonexistance of god, assuming that the definitions of the terms are phrased appropriately and thereby the intellectual would be satisfied (variations of Godel's Theorems can be used either way depending on how the term "sets" are defined as per the supernatural and natural sets or by defining God as being "greater than the sum of the net intelligence in the universe" or etc).

However, the objectivist is not satisfied by pure logic, but requires naturalistic evidence to warrant the terms provided.

Cloud Fusion

....eh, more like a Cloud Fusion Generator, for generating clouds in a jar, and a Soundscapes CD. :)


Cloud, I mean, Cold Fusion

I mean, the steam isn't even superheated and the reaction is too slow to even turn a turbine (all signs there is no real atomic fusion occuring but perhaps some electricity flowing between electrodes and cool water vaporization and electrolysis), lol, and now this Obama Administration Alternative Energy PR stunt with "the Navy neutrons"....I'll bet this is just cloud fusion in a higher volage fusor is all, or perhaps with some nuclear contaminated paladium from one of the sub reactors :P
Scientific American: After-20-years-new-life-for-cold-fusion

Hey, but if I am wrong .... So... I should expect this to hit the markets some time soon? Can I expect a jet vehicle that has a turbine that runs off of cold fusion some time in the near future, like a couple months!? I mean, geez, the rest of the technology already exists in the form of the original batmobile and all, all that's left is a atomic cold-fusion power source ...

Quantum's Photon Interactions

In this conception of the photon, the Poynting Vector would be proportional to the cross product of ExB, and thereby would be expanding and contracting in the E-field planes perpendicular to the direction of motion. In accordance with the Maxwell Equations, the curl of E is proportional to the time rate of change of the B-field, and since a photon has no charges (photons emitt no electic fields) it experiences an oscillatory spin and thereby the angular momentum is not conserved for the photon and that leads to symmetry breaking on the quantum realm of things. This is only true for objects that don't have a charge or rest masses, but for objects that do have charges (and thereby a current density) or rest masses, the angular momentum is conserved.

UPDATE:  The above image of E and B fields for a photon is incorrect due to the law of relativity.  There can be no change in time for a lightspeed object relative to a "blind observer", and hence no -dB/dt or dE/dt, a "blind observer" is a device which doesn't interact with the entity being observed, in this case a photon.  This is the reason why photons in quantum physics don't change their orientations unless they interact with either another photon, thereby exhibiting wave diffraction patterns, or with another particle thereby being bounced, deflected, absorbed or transmitted, since it's only when a photon traverses through a medium with a refractive/absorptive index greater than 1 that it begins to oscillate relative to an "interacting observer".  Hence this quantum depiction of a static photon spin for an unobtruded photon below is actually correct, and hence angular momentum is conserved for a photon.

Pi Derivation



Note - the approximation for F(x) = x -x^3/3 + x^5/5 -.... is rapidly convergent for a range of -1< x <1 but inefficiently convergent for values out of that range, however this range of accuracy could be horizontally shifted by setting x. as something other than 0 in the Taylor Polynomial Approximation.

- Or - you could solve this for x>1 by setting F(x)= pi/2 - F( 1/x ),
where pi/2 is the sum sequence derived (2-2/3+2/5-2/7+2/9-....)

Oh Thank Heaven

Some people, supposedly, have a god-shaped hole in their brains while others, like myself, have a cappaccino shaped hole in their stomachs. Anyhow, a couple nights ago I really enjoyed having the best tasting capaccino ever. I didn't, however, specify the ratios of cream, milk, and sugar or anything like that, I just left that one up to the supergurus at 7-11 to figure out. Anyhow, I was very wired, wired yet relaxed while listening to NES video game music on my i-Tunes! After a while, I got to thinking, "this realistic caffiene/sugar rush of zen is peace like no religion in the world can offer" :)

Was the Ark a Supercondutor?

lol....The History Channel hints that it might have been in their Ancient Discoveries series! By the way, where the heck is that magical thing anyway?

Eeeeek!

The peanut butter industry depends on the fact that there are no black holes or big bangs occuring in their food product.
