RIGHT WING BIAS -- The Bush-spiked Supreme Court has sold out the American people by allowing unlimited anonymous corporate donations to political candidates so billionaires can brainwash the public with deceptive advertising backed up by the right-wing Fox "News" propaganda machine and puppet Tea Party. Of course ABC, CBS, CNN & NBC are culpable as they are also in the big corporate club (excepting MSNBC, PBS and NPR) and they disguise their sins upon the people as patriotism! The republican party should even be investigated for unamerican activities for their policies on privatizing social security, lax regulation of financial institutions, the environment, and health care that are in direct opposition to the good of the American people. IT'S TIME TO MARCH ON CONGRESS IN WASHINGTON, DC TO STOP THE GOP FASCISTS (AND THE KOCH BROTHERS' PHONEY "TEA PARTY" ) FROM STEALING MEDICAL AND RETIREMENT BENEFITS FROM U.S. CITIZENS! The "Occupy Wall Street" movement and its spin-offs across the country are stimulating further debate, and their occupation of Washington, D.C. is morphing into a larger effort to demand action by Congress to work for the American people and not for corporate lobbists and partisan right wing ideologues.
PERSONAL ECONOMICS -- In addition to the need for science and math education in the public schools, personal finance and financial responsibility need to be emphasized, with practical training in managing a checking account, balancing expenses between necessities and leisure activities, as well as developing an appreciation for a healthy, self-sustaining lifestyle.
IGNORANCE -- Unfortunately, Louisiana, South Carolina & Texas (three states who could have benefitted most from the stimulus package) have rejected the stimulus on party lines, at great expense to their citizens. Also the new republican House of Representatives wants to eliminate the new health care plan AND cut states' funding across the board.
JOBS -- Given the poor condition of our cities and national infrastructure (bridges, public works, etc.) and high unemployment, a WPA type jobs program like we had in the 1930's is overdue. Not only would it supply needed improvements but it would also train workers in critical skills and allow their families to remain off the welfare rolls. This is where we should be investing our "extra" $700 Billion.
SOLUTIONS FOR GLOBAL WARMING -- Accommodate climate changes and energy depletion with storm resistant structures, enclosed gardens, telecommuting, "off-the-grid" solar, wind and energy cell utilization, eco-friendly attitudes and regulation.
HOMELAND INFILTRATION -- If a Jihadist invasion of our homeland is occuring under our noses (look at all the cheap motels, quick stop groceries and gas stations owned by far easterners, and perfect for feeding, fueling and quartering an underground army moving around freely in our country), we had better ask the old 60's question: "Am I paranoid? Or are they REALLY out to get us?"
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM -- Conversely, Villa Park city councilwoman Deborah Pauly, and state congressmen Ed Royce and Gary Miller, should be prosecuted for first ammendment violations and anti-muslim hate speech at a peaceful fundraiser for muslim children in Orange County, California.
UNIVERSAL CONSCRIPTION -- In order to deter war, lawmakers would be less inclined to utilize our troops for questionable purposes if their own were among those destined to die in combat. In this regard, I would propose universal conscription as the most fair and effective means to this end. Say, a two year stint from ages 18 to 20 for every man and woman (no exceptions or deferments of any kind) would be required, but allowing special assignments for pacifists and the handicapped -- thereby giving every man and woman in our country the ability to defend against an invasion of our homeland --- and provide a common national consciousness. Of course, incentives would be required to retain officers and career soldiers for more specialized training.
AFGHANISTAN -- Why can't we contract the Poppy Warlords of Afghanistan to supply the producers of medical morphine?
BIG TOBACCO -- Similarly, the tobacco industry in the United States could be converted to the production of medical marijuana; and recreational marijuana could be taxed to bolster our failing state economies while removing the "number one cash crop" of many states from control of the drug cartels and their associated violence.
MEXICO LEGALIZES PERSONAL USE: 5 grams pot, 150 micrograms LSD, 1 gram cocaine, 50 milligrams heroin, 40 milligrams crystal (methedrine), but no word yet on peyote (mescaline), schrooms (psylocibin) or Salvia Divinorum & Ahayuasca (DMT).
"The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world." -- Carl Sagan
The Award-winning DVD "10 Questions for the Dalai Lama" is highly recommended.
CHINESE DISAPPEAR PANCHEN LAMA -- In 1995 the Dalai Lama chose 6-year-old Gendun Cheokyi Nyima as the 11th Panchen Lama, the most exalted figure of Tibetan Buddhism after the Dalai Lama.
The boy and his family soon disappeared and have not been heard from since.
China's communist-led government later named Gyaltsen Norbu as the 11th Panchen Lama and said
Nyima and his family were being kept in a secret location for their protection.
"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."

QUANTUM CREATION -- The universe manifests from the Unitary Sole-Existent (an unstructured and unchanging singular energy field) by +/- spatial charge distribution of individual equal but opposite charges pairing to form self-propagating photons (gauge bosons) whose motions, due to interactions, cause the emergence of "Time". What we consider elementary mass, electrons and positrons, are produced by pair-formation of
threshold gammarays (brought to this level of energy by anomolous constructive interference).
These electron-positron pairs (spin +1, -1) then aggregate into larger and more complex systems
(nucleons, atoms, molecules to stars, galaxies and larger astronomical systems).
The brain holographically Re-creates the external physical world by receiving and processing
information from sensory input data.
By virtue of the 0.2 second transit time to encircle the globe of ALL radiation emanating from biological
metebolic processes and chemical reactions, all living beings of this eco-system would be in constant
communication. This "natural" Neuosphere could
have evolved as a Universal Mind, providing an
explanation of the physical mechanism for Idealism as "God" or universal consciousness.
The affect of man-made E-M emissions on this "natural" Neuosphere is yet to be determined, but certainly
does not bode well for the ecosphere (and may be a contributor to global warming).
Levels of Consciousness are not "Dimensions" but are described as various levels of integration of external
input data within the brain, leading to greater awareness as the structures (klesas or Archetypes) are transcended -- ultimately to the full knowledge of "God" with all knowledge (memories, including memories of previously predicted events which would appear to us as the "future") stored as the Akashic Record.
SECRET OF LIFE -- The Missing Link between cellular consciousness and multicell creatures is exemplified by Siphonophores. These deep sea colonies of specialized groups of individual cells that arrange themselves into larger groups of differently specialized "body"-functions ("organs") that respond and process food in a manner like an individual animal would, but all of the individual cells can separate and go their own way if desired. The only difference between them and larger life forms seems to be the connectivity between the individual cells of larger animals and the central nervous system (including the brain). This can provide real insight into the relationship of the individual cell to our whole body. Siphonophores even travel in much the same way as larger sea creatures, utilizing their own specialized propulsion system.
MASS DRIVERS -- Viewed as impossible future projects requiring thousands of years of scientific development, mass drivers are astronomical scale manipulations of stellar and planetary mass by intelligent life forms. [Note: The electromagnetic railgun and coilgun launchers have been nicknamed 'mass driver' but that was probably done referentially, as a sub-category of the original concept.]
Other than the unlikely telekinetic manipulation of large scale objects (possibly proposed by psi scientists or students of psychic phenomena), the simultaneous peppering by a large number of the most powerful hydrogen bombs SEEMS to be the only real way to profoundly affect the immediate solar system. It would hardly be noticed on the sun. The use of nuclear weapons to deflect near-earth asteroids is uncertain, at best.
An incremental developmental process could utilize smaller technological mechanisms to accumulate mass into gravitationally increasing clumps (a process to be referred to as "Gravitos"). Solar or nuclear-powered electromagnets orbiting in the asteroid belt provides a graphical illustration of the largely iron asteroids clumping into larger masses which may eventually be guided into the formation (or possibly REformation in the case of the asteroid belt) of a new planet. Active intervention would be necessary to assure the efficiency of the gravational clumping process. Other large scale interventions like the proposed terraforming of Mars by introducing moss and other plant life into the high CO2 environment near water sources, are examples (plants, of course, produce oxygen as a waste product, like animals produce CO2). This is an example of mass driver scale activities using the incremental influence of technological mechanisms.
This could be viewed as the fetal stage of mass driver development. It may be the only viable method of accomplishing mass driving. Nevertheless, it appears to be a technique worth developing. The rewards being the minerals acquired from the asteroids on a gravitationally managable proto-moon or proto-planet, as well as later being able to guide the development of this proto-planet using techniques developed on our moon and Mars.
The dream of truly large scale astronomical intervention may be just that: a dream. We may never prevent the Milky Way from colliding into the Andromeda Galaxy, but think of avoiding extinction scale asteroid impacts -- a worthy endeavor to be sure. An effective preventative means must be established for use against naturally-occurring potential asteroid impacts of our planet or other satellite. An ambitious steering approach, utilizing pulsed LASERs or retro-rockets, for deviating the path of comets, might also be utilized for various specific impacts such as directing a water-ice comet towards Mars, the moon or other dry body which otherwise might have prospects for the development of life. A good project for a mass driver.
PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE -- Beware (Be Aware) that Pseudoscience ("insane in the M-Brane...") is being promulgated by biased or naive research groups and partisian political organizations using governmental powers to further their agendas, and by fundamentalist religious groups in order to supplant science with their religious doctrines. Examples are creationism (recently disguised as "Intelligent Design" in order to infiltrate our schools), the Bush administration's denial of global warming in order to support anti-environmental development policies worldwide, Big Bang Theory (a simplistic interpretation of CMBE, and red shift data as "doppler" data, that has grown into an obtuse self-justification of misdirected research), the propaganda against marijuana (one of the most beneficial plants on the planet that is being suppressed by alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceutical and timber industries as well as religious discrimination against eastern and other religious practices), plus lies about LSD (inaccurately claiming that it is mutagenic, or DNA altering) in order to scare seekers from experiencing higher levels of consciousness, authentic spiritual experience, ESP and the "bioplasmic universe."
BOGUS "Scientific" CONCEPTS:
Flat Earth Theory
Genetic Racial Superiority -- an attempt by the monied elite to justify the de facto caste/slave system already in place
Time Travel (other than suspended animation)
Teleportation without destruction of object
Big Bang Theory
Physical Singularities (a mathematical term only) Rather, think: "Newtonian black holes"
Physical Indetermancy (it's really our limited
ability to measure physical processes)
Neutrinos (proposed by measuring electron scattering angles
from photons as single particles rather than as binary dipoles)
Photon having zero mass, an approximation that was later "defined" (remember E=mc^2=hf)
Space-Time (neither is substantial: time is
referential to location and change of location due to interactions; and space is nothingness)
If these misconceptions are corrected, unified field theory will be solvable.
