A Lesson in Reality

Here is a philosophical viewpoint that has been put forth by Roger Penrose about what exactly composes reality. In this philosophical viewpoint, Reality is only understood by the Mind when it has obtained an objective understanding of (1) the intricacies involved in the Platonic Mathematical World, (2) how the Platonic Mathematical World represents the Physical World that we live in, and (3) how the Physical World we live in gives rise to the Mind that has the ability to comprehend both the Platonic and the Physical Worlds.

Update 6/15/2012 - This blog author’s clarification and interpretation of the matter:

There is the Logical Set of Numerical and Geometrical Relations (the Platonic Realm of Forms and Functions), which is independent of Nature (the units of quantities that obey various symmetry and conservation laws), which is independent of Mind (the conscious experience of nature and the level of understanding of numerical and geometric logic).

However, there are backwards dependencies, the mind is dependent on both nature and the Logical Set of Numerical and Geometric Relations.

Nature is dependent on the Logical Set of Numerical and Geometrical Relations that govern it.

It would be impossible for the mind to use logic to prove otherwise, as using logic would thereby demonstrate the dependence on logic. It also would be impossible for the mind to demonstrate that it can be independent of nature as well, since it is dependent (in my view consciousness is a function of sensory feedback loops and computing cycles).

Update 12/26/10 - The opening theme song to The Twilight Zone outlines this philosophy of 3 World Reality as well. "3 World Reality - a place where the Mind's Eye, the dimension of Inner Knowledge (The Mental World), and the Mind's Ear, the study of Outer Knowledge (Nature) meet, and where the mind charts a course through the Logos of the Unknown (Platonic Realm of Abstract Forms and Ideas)..."

A Flying Saucer Overview

Warped Gravitational Field Propulsion can be doable according to one theory - Electrogravitics

There is also an idea for Buoyant Saucers too, and I know Russia has them and America has them too (of note is that a saucer is not the only shape for buoyant craft, triangles or hexagons or cigar shaped blimps, or any other shape is equally valid). The idea buoyant saucers might simply be that they float to the upper atmosphere and then launch away using ... nuclear propulsion or some other propulsion means.

There is also a lightcraft design for flying saucers and the coanda effect (or electro-hydrodynamically too)

Then of course there is also the Noisy Hexacopters and Graceful Quadrotors too, which can easily be mistaken for flying saucers...

Here are some links to UFOlogy I've looked into so far -
Vortices and Victor Schauberger
1984 Whiteman Airforce Base Incident
Dan Akroid on UFO's (8 part documentary)
History Channel - Ancient Aliens

Here are some Daily UFO Headlines

Intelligent robotics, of course, is something that would allow significantly longer lifespans than organic life intelligence has. Hence, SETI now aims to search for robotic lifeforms in the universe as well, which opens up a whole new frontier (asteroids are for all intents and purposes, indistinguishable from orbiting spacecraft of similar size on radar, or perhaps there are stealth spaceships completely invisible to NASA's radar too) as far as the possibilities for intelligent drones and self-replicating spacecraft goes, there seems to be no limit.

Vortices and Victor Schauberger

Until it finally comes to fruition, if it hasn't already, music coupled with theoretical ideas and diagrams is creativity at its best.

Dec 24th - Happy Newton Day =)

Here is a tribute to the man who got the scientific ball rolling, the man who blazed the way for the intellect so that the scientific revolution and the enlightenment could thrive, the man who brought dignity to the human race through science. Here's to you Mr. Newton, happy birthday (December 24th)!

Dec 21 - Happy Solstice Day :)

Merry Happy Solstice (Dec 21) everybody :)

(note - Winter Solstice for US, however December 21st and a half is Summer Solstice in Australia...)

Here's a picture summary (note - be sure to check out the source links at the bottom for other cool Maths related stuff as well)

Happy other upcoming Holidays too (Christmas, Hannakuh, Festivus, Kwanzaa, Newton's Day, etc).
