Workings of Ancient 'Computer' Deciphered

"Workings of Ancient Computer Deciphered: After a closer examination of the Antikythera Mechanism, a surviving marvel of ancient Greek technology, scientists have found that the device not only predicted solar eclipses but also organized the calendar in the four-year cycles of the Olympiad, forerunner of the modern Olympic Games.

The new findings, reported Wednesday in the journal Nature, also suggested that the mechanisms concept originated in the colonies of Corinth, possibly Syracuse, in Sicily. The scientists said this implied a likely connection with the great Archimedes.

Archimedes, who lived in Syracuse and died in 212 B.C., invented a planetarium calculating motions of the Moon and the known planets and wrote a lost manuscript on astronomical mechanisms. Some evidence had previously linked the complex device of gears and dials to the island of Rhodes and the astronomer Hipparchos, who had made a study of irregularities in the Moons orbital course."

Paul Craig Roberts goes on the warpath!

Paul Craig Roberts goes on the warpath!

In 2005 the United Nations Relief and Works Agency estimated 4.25 million Palestinians and their descendants were refugees from their homeland. [PDF ] ...

Americans are a gullible and naive people. They have been complicit for 60 years in crimes that in Arnold Toynbee’s words "are comparable in quality" to the crimes of Nazi Germany. As Toynbee was writing decades ago, the accumulated Israeli crimes might now be comparable also in quantity. ...

The US routinely vetoes United Nations condemnations of Israel for its brutal crimes against the Palestinians. Insouciant American taxpayers have been bled for a half century to provide the Israelis with superior military weapons with which Israelis assault their neighbors, all the while convincing America—essentially a captive nation—that Israel is the victim.

Americans who can no longer think for themselves and who are terrified of disapproval by their peer group are incapable of lending their voices to anyone except those who control the world of propaganda in which they live.

It looks like somebody just unsheathed the knife.

Mr. Roberts, for that final paragraph alone - quoted above - I salute you.

Update: the bloodletting continues: here:
I sometimes wonder if Americans have enough sense to justify their continued existence as an independent country.

The Ahmadinejadinator continues to rock!


"The big powers are going down," Ahmadinejad told foreign ministers of the Nonaligned Movement meeting in Tehran. "They have come to the end of their power, and the world is on the verge of entering a new, promising era."

While only infrequently mentioning the U.S. by name Tuesday, Ahmadinejad made clear that he blamed Washington and its allies for trying to "impose their political will on nations and governments."

He accused the great powers of "fomenting discord .... to intensify the military and arms race" so they can feed their arms industries. AIDS, he said, also was the result of world conditions "imposed by big powers."

Accusing the U.N. Security Council of being a tool of the world's haves -- which use them against the have-nots -- he said it was useless to expect that body to be the solution to the world's ills.

"If the United Nations and the Security Council ... were supposed to deal with the problems of the world ... we would not have a problem called Palestine," he declared, in indirect criticism of the creation of the Jewish state 60 years ago.

The Russian, Chinese, Islam, Latin American alliance in the news


The Russian-Chinese-Islam-Latin American alliance in the news:


Here's a link to an article that describes the actual unfolding global reality: here.

In this epoch of globalization where authoritarianism has prospered, elitism has conquered, false flag operations have ascended, liberty has shriveled, war has prevailed, and true democracies have vanished, a handful of sovereign nations are trying to survive the whirlpool of the new world order by arming themselves and by making unholy alliances that will prolong their sovereignty and survival.

More here:
"Fidel has spoken about the crisis of common sense in the world, especially in some powerful countries," he said, according to Russia's Interfax news agency. "Russia has fortunately retained this common sense." The visit played out against a backdrop of global tension over high oil prices, inflation and a weakened dollar. But some analysts dismissed the backslapping and dealing between the rulers as a largely empty display. "We and Hugo Chávez show America the finger. It's an opportunity for a lot of anti-American rhetoric," independent Russian defense analyst Pavel Felgengauer said. "It's a win-win situation." Still, both countries are riding high on record-busting oil prices. And yesterday, the two presidents pledged to form a strategic energy alliance. "Our relations have reached a totally new level," Medvedev said after he and Chávez watched Russia's oil and gas companies sign a host of deals with their Venezuelan counterparts. The deals clear the way for Russian companies to develop Venezuelan fields, beginning with Russian giant Gazprom drilling in western Venezuela while Lukoil drills in the Orinoco valley. Wider exploration as well as joint railroad, infrastructure and banking projects will follow, the presidents said. Chávez echoed Russian calls to make the ruble a major reserve currency in opposition to a weakened dollar. "The ruble must become a world currency," he said. "The dollar must not become a world currency."

"We are struggling against the same adversary -- U.S. imperialism, against countries which serve as lackeys of that imperialism," Chavez said after receiving the "Friendship of Nations" award from the Belarussian leader.

"We are winning, but a long battle still lies ahead. The hegemonist aims have collapsed. American imperialism will continue to fall."

Lukashenko was more reserved during the ceremony in a square named after Latin American revolutionary hero Simon Bolivar, praising Belarus's alliance with Venezuela and calling for the creation of a "multi-polar" world.

Obamedia

McCain now claims that the media is biased in favor of Obama.

Think for a moment about the ramifications of McCain's claim:

It's tough to argue with that; you see, the "media" is a tool of the corporatized Judeo-plutocracy - and that's all that it is. But why do they want Obama so badly? McCain wants to finish off White America just as badly as Obama, but the media would find the spectacle of Obama doing it eminently more enjoyable.

Moreover, what's the best way for Obama to ensure his reelection in four years? The answer is at once obvious and simple: legalize every illegal immigrant already in the U.S. and open the borders as wide as possible, because every one of them is a vote for Obama is 2012. This isn't complicated at all; the Bastards hate us and want to make sure we never again exercise even a slight degree of autonomy. This is their big chance.

You think you're free, but you're not: you're a slave, nothing but a miserable slave. So keep watching your T.V.

Say goodbye to the old Republic: it's dead. And what's left is a multicultural, diverse cesspool of corruption, vice, degeneracy, and barbarism.

Still don't think the death of White America is premeditated murder?

Think again ...

Searching for extraterrrestrial life

The confidence that alien life will ultimately be found is strong enough to have kindled formal discussions among scientists, philosophers, theologians and others about the implications that such a find would have for humanity's view of itself, and how to prepare the public for the news, should it come. ...

"There's been a fundamental shift in the thinking of the scientific community on the question of life-forms beyond Earth," Pratt said.

"We now know the number of stars in the universe is something like 1 followed by 23 zeros," he said. "Given that number, how arrogant to think ours is the only sun with a planet that supports life, and that it's in the only solar system with intelligent life."

"The context for life is much broader than just what we see on Earth," he said. "Organic material is falling from the sky all the time, and we're learning that what happens out there is very important down here. Who knows: Maybe life on Earth came from Mars billions of years ago, when it had liquid water on its surface."

Rummel said that the discovery of many varieties of extremophiles on Earth, coupled with a better understanding of some potentially habitable environments on other planets or moons, leads him to believe that life beyond Earth will be found, with ramifications comparable to Copernicus's 15th-century discovery that Earth is not the center of the universe. "The Copernican revolution continues," Rummel said.

"If any extraterrestrial life is found in our solar system and we can determine it has no relation to life on Earth, then the assumption has to be that life of all sorts is quite common throughout the galaxies," Butler said.

In addition, the Hubble Space Telescope and other instruments have given researchers new data about the evolution and structure of the universe -- information that makes it increasingly appear to be "fine-tuned" for life.

Lord Martin Rees, England's Astronomer Royal made that argument as the keynote speaker at NASA's spring astrobiology conference -- saying that life could not exist on Earth or anywhere else if the basic physical dynamics of the universe were not almost precisely what they are. Slight changes in the strength of the electrical force that holds atoms together, of the pull of gravity, or of the total mass of the universe would have made it difficult for stars to form and create the heavy elements essential for life, and impossible for them to remain active long enough to support the process of evolution.

Many religious thinkers see this fine-tuning as an argument for the existence of a creator, but Rees and other cosmologists offer a different explanation: that our universe is but one in a world of multiple (or infinite) universes. However it came into being, Rees argued, our universe is inherently life-supporting, and there is no reason to believe that that potential has been realized only on Earth.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization:

Hey White America, would you like to know what you've got coming straight at your complacent, T.V. watching face? You've got an entire globe that is coalescing against you; a hostile world in which the Judeo-plutocrats who are currently lording it over you treat you like serfs in the land your Forefathers carved out of a wilderness - but hey, did you see the game last night?

The Russian-Chinese-Islam- South American coalition will control most of the energy - the future belongs to them.

But that's okay: we've got McDonald's, the NFL, debt, open borders, and our gallant little "ally," Israel. And when America collapses from the weight of the excrement pressing down upon it, you don't think for a minute that the Judeo-plutocrats will suffer - do you? They're set for the next ten thousand generations - and at your expense, of course.

White America: You deserve exactly - exactly - what you're going to get.

Truth will set us ALL free ...


Truth will set us ALL free:






















But cherry-picking science is as bad as ignoring it. It may not sit right with modern descendants of the bishop of Worcester's wife, but wouldn't it be nice if everyone -- regardless of political preference -- simply tried to understand what is true, and stopped trying to fit evolution into ideologic pigeonholes?

Recognizing that there are genetically distinct varieties of mankind is not really different from the recognition of any other truth: most anything can be used for good or evil.

This is the key: always remember that love is the paramount virtue, for yourself and for all sentient entities. The universe was created so we could grow toward the Creator, and to do that sometimes necessitates the recognition and acceptance of unpopular truths - but in the end humanity and ALL life is better off for it.

Reject stereotypes and labels - THINK! Homogeneous societies overwhelmingly tend to be peaceful, prosperous, harmonious societies, not perfect by any means, but then again nothing is.

Look anyone in the eye and speak the truth with conviction and love - and set yourself free. We can colonize the stars and save our People, and at the same time be the greatest humanitarian movement the world has ever seen.

Cosmic DNA?

Scientists confirm that parts of earliest genetic material may have come from the stars:

Scientists have confirmed for the first time that an important component of early genetic material which has been found in meteorite fragments is extraterrestrial in origin, in a paper published on June 15, 2008

Scientists have confirmed for the first time that an important component of early genetic material which has been found in meteorite fragments is extraterrestrial in origin, in a paper published on 15 June 2008.

The finding suggests that parts of the raw materials to make the first molecules of DNA and RNA may have come from the stars.

The scientists, from Europe and the USA, say that their research, published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, provides evidence that life's raw materials came from sources beyond the Earth.

The materials they have found include the molecules uracil and xanthine, which are precursors to the molecules that make up DNA and RNA, and are known as nucleobases.

The team discovered the molecules in rock fragments of the Murchison meteorite, which crashed in Australia in 1969.

They tested the meteorite material to determine whether the molecules came from the solar system or were a result of contamination when the meteorite landed on Earth.

The analysis shows that the nucleobases contain a heavy form of carbon which could only have been formed in space. Materials formed on Earth consist of a lighter variety of carbon.

Lead author Dr Zita Martins, of the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London, says that the research may provide another piece of evidence explaining the evolution of early life. She says:

"We believe early life may have adopted nucleobases from meteoritic fragments for use in genetic coding which enabled them to pass on their successful features to subsequent generations."

Between 3.8 to 4.5 billion years ago large numbers of rocks similar to the Murchison meteorite rained down on Earth at the time when primitive life was forming. The heavy bombardment would have dropped large amounts of meteorite material to the surface on planets like Earth and Mars.

Co-author Professor Mark Sephton, also of Imperial's Department of Earth Science and Engineering, believes this research is an important step in understanding how early life might have evolved. He added:

"Because meteorites represent left over materials from the formation of the solar system, the key components for life -- including nucleobases -- could be widespread in the cosmos. As more and more of life's raw materials are discovered in objects from space, the possibility of life springing forth wherever the right chemistry is present becomes more likely."

The Big Bang was an autotelic cosmic seed, and the universe is an organism for cultivating Consciousness.

All history is the history of the evolutionary transubstantiation of matter to Spirit via biological-life processes of Blood and Reason.

The hazy mist of obfuscation

Whether or not ID is religious is irrelevant, argued Shermer (*gasp!* — yes, he essentially said this). The bottom line is that ID isn't testable or falsifiable, claimed Shermer, and ID proponents haven't done enough research and science to develop ID into a testable scientific theory.

Darwinists and ID advocates are battling over a red herring: they're both right and wrong!

Darwinists are right in the sense that, yes, of course change happens over time, but Darwinists are wrong in that, no, materialism cannot account for the complexity found in nature and the emergence of organization and information in the universe (e.g., the bio-friendly laws of nature, from the cosmic to the subatomic).


ID advocates are right in the sense that information only derives from intelligence, but they're wrong in their approach; for example, the notion of irreducible complexity is not sound: reality had to incrementally accrue from
something - the best candidate for this "something" is the Big Seed.

So how to split the difference?
Reducible teleology!

And as for Shermer trying to invalidate ID by saying it's not falsifiable, I've got a straightforward request: Mr. Shermer, please prove to me that an infinite number of universes do not exist. Can you do it? No, you can't; therefore, the multiverse theory is not sound - because it is NOT falsifiable
or testable.

We're left with two choices: an infinite number of causes (i.e., the multiverse) somehow brought our universe into being, or one cause
(i.e., Aristotle's unmoved Mover) somehow brought our universe into being.

What does
Occam's razor tell us?

Occam's razor:
a scientific and philosophic rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities.

It's almost as if the Darwinists and the ID'ers are playing the same fric & frac charade as the Democrats and the Republicans: everybody ignores the obvious and self-divides into two make-believe hostile camps - and then of course they need money to carry on with their Punch and Judy antics. That's where the hazy mist of obfuscation kicks in.

Pope Benedict offers words of wisdom ...

... Analyzing today’s secular culture, Pope Benedict said, “There is also something sinister which stems from the fact that freedom and tolerance are so often separated from truth. This is fueled by the notion, widely held today, that there are no absolute truths to guide our lives.” The consequence of believing in relativism, the Holy Father observed, is that “practically everything” is indiscriminately given value, which makes "experience" all-important. “Yet, experiences, detached from any consideration of what is good or true, can lead, not to genuine freedom, but to moral or intellectual confusion, to a lowering of standards, to a loss of self-respect, and even to despair,” the Pontiff told the youth. ...

... “Dear friends, life is not governed by chance; it is not random. Your very existence has been willed by God, blessed and given a purpose!” he proclaimed.

“Life is not just a succession of events or experiences, helpful though many of them are. It is a search for the true, the good and the beautiful. It is to this end that we make our choices; it is for this that we exercise our freedom; it is in this – in truth, in goodness, and in beauty – that we find happiness and joy.”

Pope Benedict also tackled the dangers of materialism, exhorting the youth, “Do not be fooled by those who see you as just another consumer in a market of undifferentiated possibilities, where choice itself becomes the good, novelty usurps beauty, and subjective experience displaces truth.” ...

... Although this worldview “presents itself as neutral, impartial and inclusive of everyone,” Pope Benedict explained that, “in reality, like every ideology, secularism imposes a world-view.”

The consequences of this type of living without God are that, “society will be shaped in a godless image, and debate and policy concerning the public good will be driven more by consequences than by principles grounded in truth,” Benedict warned.

He closed his address by noting that the “world has grown weary of greed, exploitation and division, of the tedium of false idols and piecemeal responses, and the pain of false promises.” ...

Though I am not a Christian, I deeply sympathize with Pope Benedict on these points.

Update - Pope Calls for a ‘New Age’ in Final Australia Mass:

“In so many of our societies, side by side with material prosperity, a spiritual desert is spreading: an interior emptiness, an unnamed fear, a quiet sense of despair,” he warned.

CMS detector will search for the Higgs boson - the "God particle"


Cern lab goes "colder than space"











The most powerful physics experiment ever built, the LHC will re-create the conditions just after the Big Bang.









The Higgs boson explains why all other particles have mass. According to the theory, particles acquire their mass through interactions with an all-pervading field, called the Higgs field, which is carried by the Higgs boson.

Such a breakthrough would energise debate on a "unified theory" to describe all natural phenomena. Discoveries such as supersymmetry may also bridge gaps between experimental evidence and string theory, one attempt at building a grand scheme.


The LHC might even reveal something completely unexpected about the workings of our Universe. And that, say physicists, might be even more satisfying.

Reality 101: The Big Seed


The Big Bang was
NOT a bomb going off:

When you detonate a bomb, you get something like this:



















As a seed comes to fruition, you get this:

















The Big Bang was an autotelic cosmic seed, and the universe is an organism for cultivating Consciousness.

Another important aspect of RNA research lies in the interaction between DNA transcription, and the physical structure both of the membrane-bound cell nucleus and the genome coiled within it. Genes are transcribed within the nucleus and the resulting RNA molecules then emerge through small holes that are connected to the genome by proteins called nuclear pore complexes. In one of the presentations, Nick Proudfoot from Oxford University in the UK explained how some genes are enhanced by being close to the nuclear pore complex, indicating a close relationship between gene expression and nuclear structure that must have played out through evolutionary history. Another point to emerge from Proudfoot's presentation was how some genes are expressed more efficiently for a different reason, because the section of DNA containing their sequence is coiled locally into a loop, rather than as a branch. Quite simply, this speeds up the transcription process of reading the gene because the enzyme concerned, RNA Polymerase, can just keep on encircling the loop. As Proudfoot explained, this is relevant for quality control as well. "They may afford quality control by "telling" the polymerase it is transcribing a bona fide gene, with a proper beginning and end," said Proudfoot. "Otherwise the polymerase may have initiated erroneously." The existence of a DNA ring makes it easier to identify the sequence corresponding to a gene, and transcribe it correctly.
Let's see a bomb do that!

The law that entropy always increases-the second law of thermodynamics-holds, I think, the supreme position among the laws of Nature.

If it is found to be contradicted by observation-well, these experimentalists do bungle things sometimes. But if your theory is found to be against the second law of thermodynamics I can give you no hope; there is nothing for it but to collapse in deepest humiliation.

THE POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY OF THE AMERICAN FOUNDING FATHERS

BULLSHIT


BULLSHIT
:


"The teleology of Hegelian and Leninist Marxisms is rejected. There is neither a predetermined destination, nor any necessary stages through which we have to pass. Directional demands seek to bring about a deterritorialisation, an opening up onto a ‘plane of immanence’. As the name implies, they suggest a direction; nothing more, nothing less."

Rantings like the one above are pseudo-intellectual gibberish; notice how nothing is concrete, nothing is tied to reality: it's all just words strung together without any consideration whatsoever of the contextual totality - the soup of Being - in which ALL entities are immersed and permeated by. No sir: it's just fabricated rhetoric detached from any and all actuality - i.e.,
BULLSHIT.

Stanley Fish on the poetry of Milton ...

But it’s more than that, as both Leonard and Smith agreed. Leonard: “More than anyone else, Milton captures the disjunction between the way things are and the way they should be.” Smith: “It’s the combination of amazing poetry and an insistence on principle.” Rather than being employed for its own sake, the poetry is always in the service of ideas and moral commitments, and it is always demanding that its readers measure themselves against the judgments it repeatedly makes – judgments about the nature of virtue, about the proper mode of civil and domestic behavior, about the true shape of heroism, about the self-parodying bluster of military action, about the criteria of aesthetic excellence, about the uses of leisure, about one’s duties to man and God, about the scope and limitations of reason, about the primacy of faith, about everything.

All of this was predicted in 1674 by Samuel Barrow who said to the future readers of the poem, “You who read “Paradise Lost”… what do you read but everything? This book contains all things and the origins of all things, and their destinies and final ends.” How did the world begin? Why were men and women created in the first place? How did evil come into the world? What were the causes of Adam’s and Eve’s Fall? If they could fall, were they not already fallen and isn’t God the cause? If God is the cause, and we are the heirs of the original sin, are we not absolved of the responsibility for the sins we commit? Can there be free will in a world presided over by an omniscient creator? Is the moral deck stacked? Is Satan a hero? A rebel? An apostate? An instrument of a Machiavellian and manipulative deity? Are women weaker and more vulnerable than men? Is Adam right to prefer Eve to God? What would you have done in his place? Wherever you step in the poetry, you will meet with something that asks you to take a stand, and when you do (you can’t help it) you will be enmeshed in the issues that are being dramatized.

... all set and ready for transport to our slaughter and our descent
into the Abyss of a dark illimitable ocean, without
