Don't meddle with old unloaded firearms. They are the most deadly and unerring things that have ever been created by man. You don't have to take any pains at all with them; you don't have to have a rest, you don't have to have any sights on the gun, you don't have to take aim, even. No, you just pick out a relative and bang away, and you are sure to get him. A youth who can't hit a cathedral at thirty yards with a Gatling gun in three-quarters of an hour, can take up an old empty musket and bag his mother every time at a hundred. Think what Waterloo would have been if one of the armies had been boys armed with old rusty muskets supposed not to be loaded, and the other army had been composed of their female relations. The very thought of it makes me shudder.

I think the overlords have grown stupid. Stupidity leads to villany.

Ever since I was struck by a lightening field (not grounded) its been getting harder to turn down the volume.

Known Knowns &
Unknown unknowns:

A painting of a man in a suit upon a mountain has more sky than there is horizon or rivers below.
I am the man in a suit and begin to walk down the apex where there was infinite perspective.
As I move down away from this apex, the degree of perspective rapidly drops away.
As I half stumble and climb down the mountainside I end up in an ever-deepening valley.
The walls on each side rise up higher and higher, cutting off other routes.
At the top I could see in all directions and horizons went hundreds of miles or more.
At the bottom, I had no more freedom, I was irrevocably tied to my my feet on a path.

Underground in my minds eye a tunnel of infinite length and full of capillary caves
Every split is infinite, and there are infinite numbers of them yet I see only 1 at a time.
To gaze at one is to be trapped by it, to explore one crack or branch is ignoring others
This reality is as an endless array of possible views none of which are essentially the whole.

and each excludes
awareness of others.

The only essential truth is the truth of the tunnel, which contains all the side tracks,
If I could see all the separate caves, then I could see if some of them make a fractal
From mountain top to underground I see that with my human eyes most information is lost.
I need new eyes beyond the sky and space and time to see the overwhelming truth.
I think I may be envious of the eyes of God as my human eyes begin to fail and go blind.

Entropy, therefore, is FORGETTINH , it is loss of consciousness: it is when we forget who we are and wrongly identify ourselves with a false (or game-playing) self.BBB       Being one of the boys replaces our innate uniquness. The reverse of entropy is consciousness, or ‘self-remembering’ – which is when we see through the game and remember what we forgot. Esoteric psychology has long acknowledged this principle of Self-forgetting, which lies behind so much of what we do. When we do not acknowledge this principle, then everything we do tends to become part of the on-going endeavour to avoid the truth, and even love itself ends up as a means of forgetting. Love ought to wake us up, but it slides over imperceptibly into sentimentality, attachment and pain.

I am using novelty in a way that is not entertainmnt. We can entertain ourselves to death but novelty is a much bigger paradigm shaking event and thinking process. I have seen glimpses of novelty in MOAB over the years while it is mostly absent in the rest of threads.


Yet, this pre-occupation with ‘game’ rules (for this is what evolutionary psychology comes down to) is manifestation of a curious and unacknowledged one-sidedness. Physics, as we all know, is a search for fundamental laws, laws that apply across the board, laws that are intrinsic to the nature of the universe itself. Why do we assume that there are no such equivalent laws to be found in psychology? As we have just said, contemporary psychology thinks only in terms of extrinsic laws, i.e. rules that are arbitrarily imposed. One reason that immediately comes to mind is that we do not see mind / consciousness as being fundamental in the same way that we see matter as being. We are, as professor of physics Amit Goswami (1993) says, confirmed material realists – we believe that only matter is real. BULLSHIT without the Higgs there is no matter/masss. This, of course, is a pretty big assumption on our part, although the fact of the matter is that we are now so caught up in this assumption that we don’t actually see it as such; the truth of the matter (pun intended) is that we have chosen to go down this road a long time ago, and we certainly aren’t showing any signs of wanting to question that choice now. Our predisposition to see the universe we live in this way leads to some rather peculiar, if not down-right contradictory conclusions, however. The inevitable conclusion of material realism is that the only meaning to be found in life is that meaning which is conditioned by natural selection, i.e. we only find stuff meaningful because it suits the game of ‘survival of the fittest’ that we do. Philosophically, this is the same as saying that, in the final analysis, everything is meaningless, which is in keeping with the important Western tradition of philosophical pessimism. The problem with this conclusion has been pointed out quite often, however: if everything is meaningless, then so too is our assertion that ‘everything is meaningless’ meaningless; it is a null-statement. We think that when we make this statement we are saying something meaningful, but if that meaningfulness is ‘meaningful’ only because of the way in which the arbitrary rules of natural selection have caused our brains to be designed, then it is not meaningful at all, in any real sense of the word. If such is the case, then it is inescapable that anything we say must be tautological, i.e. incapable of referring to anything outside itself. This notion of ‘tautological meaning’ is, as we shall shortly see, central to our understanding of psychological entropy.

Extremofiles to humans beings are not extrmeophiles to Nature. Even the Overlords of antiquity are extremophiles compared to us. The thing is that the O's are now dumbed down and are suffring from a condition I call PSYCHOLOGICAL ENTROPY.

Jung, writing in the first half of the twentieth century, had no recourse to non-equilibrium thermodynamics, and had to apply classical thermodynamic theory to the dynamic, self-organizing system of the psyche, which it is not able to model. He did the best he could, Capra argues, with the limited understanding that was available.
We have seen how science shapes socicietal in good nd bad ways. In the 20th century 'survival of the fittest' caused much fascist harm. Now the Higgs can do some unifying good in society.
We should move beyong Jung since science has moved beyond where we were.
Abraham Maslow’s assertion that neurosis is, at root, the rejection of novelty, i.e. the unknown. This would mean that ‘laziness’ (in Scott Peck’s particular usage of the word) corresponds to neurosis, or ‘sticking to the known,’ which is an idea that we will discuss in more detail as we go along. Within the mainstream of contemporary psychological thinking, however, there is no place for concepts such as mental entropy (it is quite out of fashion) and as a result we are in the curious position of trying to describe mental functioning without admitting the existence of any law of energetics. Rather than looking into the possibility that the psychic domain may be subject to universal laws in the same way that the physical domain is subject to, say, the law of gravitation, it seems that we want to see everything that goes on in the mind as being due to conditioned laws only. Conditioned laws are rules that are arbitrarily set up, much like the law that prohibits driving a car when under the influence of alcohol; they include behavioural drives on the one hand, such as hunger, sex and aggression, and the adaptive pressure to problem-solve on the other hand, which is to say, the pressure to learn efficient ways of interacting with our environment so that we can survive and reproduce as successfully as possible within it. Both biological drives and ‘environmental selection on the basis of reproductive performance’ come down to evolution in the end of course, and it is evolutionary psychology that makes the major claim on our attention at the present moment. That this is generally considered to be ‘the way to go’ is clearly demonstrated by our interest in such endeavours as the Human Genome Project, and the popularity of academics such as Daniel Dennett and Steven Pinker, who have (separately) articulated the principles of evolutionary psychology in a number of high profile books.
The lpss of novelty in humans is an entropy that has serious aspects of pschological Entropy as it is for overlords.

Nature has an imagination greater than its secondary life forms. To Nature life is but a thin film that requires special circumstances in certain regions. We share special inadequacies with the galactic overlords which merely have an extra billion years in their evolutionary bag of tricks that originated in a more temperate Red Star system than ours. The inadequacies the overlords are now experiencing is a bit like what we see in a polarized America. Overlord Rogues who couldn't care less about the prime directive and who have lost the techniques of planetary engineering are now in charge. A life spreading ideology is being replaced by an unsympathetic ambivilance and a future without empathy. Most say it a cost thing but the rot goes deeper. This solar system had the hand of the overlords involved in seeding life on Mars, Earth and Venus. As you know life gardening needs a stabilizing moon that only suceeded once on Earth but destroyed Mars and Venus as prospects for bio engineering. The failures arose by causing a collision with the planets with misguided moons. The moons are needed because the planets would tumble and have no reliable seasons with everchanging polar regions without a moon.. Admitedly guiding huge astroids into stable orbits are tricky things to do but now the overlords don't even try. These kids of the original overlords have had it tough and have gone through a period of cruelty much the same as a trump adminisration on Earth.

I just thought I'd warn a priviledged few to not expect any extraordinary help from the overlords anymore. Only Nature has an imagination vast enough over unimaginable time to save, not mankind, but life itself.

My hobby is asking unusual questions. I got trapped inside the nexus of total unity a couple weeks ago and had to backtrack my way out. It all started with a simple golden mean and avogadros number musing. I asked what would the golden mean sound like as a musical chord. I discovered that many have applied avogadros number in rhythm but not in harmony. As in pi an Archimedian curve/spiral is created by prime numbers. This was related to structure in spiral galaxies as well as the spral twist in DNA. Now I am starting to get lost which is normally OK but when I started to build the golden chord of the universe the frequencies rapidly became too high so reducing their octaves was necessary. It turned out that 8 was not the ideal octave number but it was 6, 44 and so on as related by primes +1 in pi! visible math By this time I was sure I have drifted off course.

The result sounds a bit like the biggest chord in Bach's Toccota in D minor. Since the universe is tuned to a mega deep B flat I had to transpose further. To make it sound more musical I sequenced each tone of the spiral of pi go up while another sequence spirals down. The sound was so mesmerizing I decided to make a scaled down I, IV and V versions.
Now the original golden mean chord was nearly lost since I contrasted the classic chord with the sprial pi prime number of frquencies with the six scale note octave and a pulsation of sound so unique yet appealing was created. Its effect was as surprising as Lux Aeterna. So it seems others have walked this path before me. = Weeks later what has stayed with me is that Bach was onto something 400 years ago perhaps with the help of a mathmatician.

The Higgs boson is the quantum manifestation of the Higgs field, which gives mass to elementary particles it interacts with, via the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism. By measuring the rate at which the Higgs boson decays into different particles, physicists can infer the strength of their interaction with the Higgs field!: the higher the rate of decay into a given particle, the stronger its interaction with the field. So far, the ATLAS and CMS experiments have observed the Higgs boson decays into different types of bosons such as W and Z, and heavier fermions such as tau leptons. The interaction with the heaviest quarks, the top and bottom, was measured in 2018. Muons are much lighter in comparison and their interaction with the Higgs field is weaker. Interactions between the Higgs boson and muons had, therefore, not previously been seen at the LHC at Cern. There is symmetry theory speculation that as many as 8 different types of bosons exist which to my way of thinking may include bosons that give dark matter gravitational mass and is composed of 'technicolor' fundamental particles. Technicolor models do not generically predict Higgs-like bosons as light as 125 GeV/c2; such a particle was discovered by experiments at the Large Hadron Collider in 2012 and 2014. Some of these issues can be addressed with a class of theories known as “walking technicolor”. https://www.tacc.utexas.edu/-/testing-technicolor-physics

If gravity is an emergent force from other interactions and is not a fundamental force it makes the role that bosons play even more mysterious/complex for me. I'm hoping it gets simpler but it shows how we haven't solved the really big questions    yet.
It is as though we have found jigsaw puzzle pieces that form most of the border of a picture but not the picture itself.

Maybe the God particle gave Amos comfort. The decay of a Higgs boson is only proof nothing lasts forever, except maybe entropy.
PS: grumpiness is the new happiness

In the last couple of weeks I've hanged better than 30 people (all male). I have a few more to go, but one will die in prison. I'll be happy when I get over this habit!

No, Rapparee ought not have to do all the heavy lifting around here.
Back up you go, MOM.

Damn! Amos would love to see this news, and I bet he would have predicted a pair of muons would be at the middle of it: Scientists find first evidence of rare Higgs boson decay

This work provides evidence for something scientists predicted long ago.

Scientists have spotted the first evidence of a rare Higgs boson decay, expanding our understanding of the strange quantum universe.

In 2012, scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland won a Nobel Prize in Physics with a breakthrough finding: they detected the Higgs boson, a subatomic particle predicted by the Standard Model of physics nearly 50 years prior. The Higgs boson doesn't live very long, quickly decaying into smaller particles like two photons (light particles).

Now, researchers using ATLAS and CMS have found evidence for a rare Higgs boson decay in which the subatomic particle decays into one photon and two leptons, a type of elementary particle that can be charged or neutral. (Electrons and muons, a similar type of subatomic particle, are two examples of charged leptons.) Specifically, they found evidence that the Higgs boson can decay into either a photon and a pair of electrons, or a photon and a pair of muons with opposite charge.

I believe the GO is ranting about the latest in the Legion's Terran Defensive Shield Line Of Defense (LTDSLOD). The special topaz/neon mauler beams (T/NMB) vaporize 'most everything in a tiny, eensy-weensy fraction of a nanosecond (TEWFOANSEC).

I think the duckdog has been playing with the jet stream. It wobbled way south this week - I had to get out the down comforter.


QUARK, anyone?
