In circular fashion institutions like governments, religions. and the media themselves tell us what we think. In other words, they take our place in stating what we think and convince some of us that their version, not ours, is what we really think and feel about issues, institutions, or anything else.. If news media, for […]
In the presidential campaign Trump will help us all if he sticks with the issues instead of insults, bullying, and other forms of propaganda.
Jan 4, 2016 Previous blog-posts have quoted terrorists who claim that their main objective is not physical violence, but propaganda. They are grateful that global mass media do most of that work for them. Although media understandably record terrorist deeds and propaganda for them, they do so excessively. Terrorists trick media indo doing most of […]
Freud was right in assuming that some dreams have meaning. But other dreams occur randomly, as in a kaleidoscope. Each of our brain’s 81 billion neurons can interact with 110 trillion or more synapses or connections in multiple random fashion. Therefore, not all dreams have meaning. If they are misinterpreted as meaningful, then they function […]
12/09/15 In the 13th century St. Thomas Aquinas wondered whether space and time can be infinite. In previous blog-posts I have agreed with Peter Woit and others that in spite of intrinsically mathematical coherence, string theory lacks external evidence for itself and for the idea that there might be a multi-verse (many universes). However, I […]
12/03/15. It bears repeating that the Kepler telescopic photo of planet earth from Saturn shows earth as a very dim and small dot, the size of the period after this D. Earth looks incredibly minute, alone, and insignificant in a universe which expands incredibly at least 13.7 billion light years in time and distance from […]
Adds for beef are full of inflation about the alleged good effects of consuming beef while they neglect cancerous and other after-effects. In contrast, news about produce has generated an abundance of fact about its production and distribution. The Produce News, founded in 1897, comprises editors who inform about several regions, including Tad Thompson, AZ […]
As stated here in previous posts, terrorists claim that their main goal is to propagandize. With the misplaced help of global media which spread their messages for them, they do this effectively. Some are propelled by a death wish; and appear as randomly as quantum particles appear in quantum field theory. Others go on to […]
Recently I have read that the gravitational pull from dark matter is just that, simply gravitational pull without mass. One more puzzling item in the make-up of the universe, esp. because most matter is dark.
Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow’s 2012 best seller, THE GRAND DESIGN, raises the question of whether postulating a multi-verse, or an infinity of universes, does not require bigger gulps of faith than belief in Intelligent Design. It is hard to discern how much of their book derives from the thought of Hawking, but Hawking has […]
