Pres Biden should be able to round up a few Repub votes

Democrats should have some new technology in the infrastructure bill instead of just more of the same old stuff with much of the pork going to Democrat states like California and New York. Why would Republicans vote for that? To get passage of the bill some political skill is wonted (an older English language use) to cut some of the Republican herd and move them for the vote to the Democrat corral. Using budget reconciliation to force through a somewhat dumb infrastructure pork bill might be regarded as a political mistake. If it was a very smart bill mostly with new forms of physical infrastructure in transportation, energy and land use it might be alright anyway.

Consider Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska; aren’t they often half-Democrats already? Put the stick of pork out in front of them so they can go chasing after it. A billion or two for Maine and three four Alaska infrastructure investments apiece could win two votes. Perhaps there is some infrastructure configuration that could win ten Republican votes. Designing a passable infrastructure bill might require using  10% of the bill to buy several Republican votes investing in highest quality new infrastructure for their states. With 30 trillion of public debt investing so little in infrastructure might say something about Repubs actually interests and center of effort (China?).

If a 500 M.P.H. land cargo transport structure were built between Chicago, Dallas and Houston and 25 billion was spent in Texas I would guess a pair of Texas votes would be for the infrastructure bill. Might be a Republican led state on the path of a California to D.C. 500 m.p.h. line that has a few Repub votes  that would support an additional ten billion of spending in each of their states.

Alaskan villages and the rail belt could use a billion dollars worth of state of the art fuel cell power plants, and a fuel production facility for the fuel cell plants would be useful too. Each Republican state might have a vote that could be shaken free to vote for large green-energy infrastructures. Hasn’t the President learned anything about negotiations in the Senate or has he fallen under the dire threats and imprecations umbrella politics of Trump and Russia haters.

Some time before he fades into the sunset the President should invite President Putin to a barbeque on the beach at Nome for a day of green energy and transport planning. Negotiating with less than a hateful bias can be useful if one is seeking to improve things for the United States and eventually the rest of the planet.

Chapter One
Conformal space

A loud raven caw crossing space disrupted sky domination of subtle chirp birds in the bush. The big black bird sounded friendly to Kurt like bright afternoon sunshine unconcerned with the splattered state of the world. When perceived the black feathers for others absorbed photons though the color for-itself uninterpreted by human eyes was as empty as the heart of darkness passing through local time.

Kurt Simagin heard the raven sound on many Y’Earth like planets. He recognized the intelligent bird as a friendly enough being. It was good to hear the sound in thornish scrub desert brambles on a Composition Nine traveler’s world. Partially decomposed bodies littered the landscape complicating contemporary history. Simagin’s immediate task was to sort out the evidence of the place assigned by Delta Taco Tier One. Activating Simagin was the prerogative of the independent security consortium of the constellation of dwindled worlds seeking to keep a semblance of freedom from one of many evil empires littering the Universe.

Simagin understood that when God created a Universe it was developed in a two-dimensional line of energy that was expanded to three dimensions like a membrane with the addition of a Higgs field. Stretching the line energy out over three dimensions made a Higgs Field of virtual energy of vast extent. Within the Higgs field might arise three-dimensional particles from the two-dimensional massless particles of the field itself as they became tangled up in the field overlapping themselves and bringing in to being the effect of three-dimensional particles with mass from massless two-dimensional particles. In such a way a Universe was born as George Lemaitre and Allan Guth had speculated about in the days before the discovery of the nature of the field. An infinite number of Universe membrane files existed next to one another in the special Modge Panc cabinet of teleological design. Each membrane could entail a limitless number of contingent dimensions and branches for spun-off Universes. Sometimes wickedness broke out interdimensionally within these Universes and slaughters of innocents and not-so-innocents and downright wicked beings occurred. Then, Kurt Simagin or some other Tier three operator was assigned to sort out and interdict if possible, for preventative and merciful reasons those perpetrators and causes that had brought the shift into beaning.

Corpses were strewn in a rough perimeter and obviously had been posthumously munched on by Claxsop spiders that lived amid the dense foliage along the winding desert river. The Livid River had scoured out a valley overlapping centuries with the work of abrasive erosion. A few flying defense drones resembling wrens still glowed with blue light though inactive and broken around the scene of the last stand of a Bankop squad. Simagin looked around for sign of alien opposition forces, and then used a field sensor to scan for electro-magnetic and visual presence of opfor biological and mechanisms. He wondered what haters could have terminated the journey banker-warrior squad. So, he found a good-sized boulder to set down upon then built a lush global warming campfire to heat a cup of highland coffee to a scalding degree to take the edge of the experience.

He knew that some investigators had developed psychological trauma that reverberated around their minds from seeing such travesties and was therefore took defensive countermeasures to prevent p.t.e.d. A memory of Mistress Sally making a stimulus check on him verged up from the deep; they'd shared r.e.m. and she do'oothed him right on the spot. He reminded himself not to be distracted thinking about the past too much in the field when Cannaemites could be advancing toward their quarry beyond his field of vision. Zvimmer, Kurt's emotional support coyote, rested on the ground looking outward toward likely enemy avenues of approach. Looking up, he smiled at Kurt than pawed a bone in the ground and began gnawing it.

Kurt wanted to consider the motivations that could have prompted the minibattle that was a last stand for the banker-squad. Forming ideas that would arise from his subconscious mind into awareness he knew, could be induced by putting his thought onto some other topic during which the unrelated solutions or suggestions of solution might appear from the depths. His head-band guarded against impacts with a layer of battery gel stuffed with intelligent nano-machine electronics and communication structures. He said to it; ” Play the video about the guy seeking the American dream of building and owning his own storage shed.”

A flying square of opaque nano-rasters appeared hovering in front of his eyes presenting the movie on a ten-inch screen. The nanorasters could visualize any sort of idea with A.I. tweak-work besides standard digital video then disappear to his combat battle-dress battery defense vest. Kurt watched Pedro Cordoba carrying lumber on his shoulder through a dark forest walking uphill and crossing muskeg bog over and over again reminding him of the myth of Sisyphus, yet in time a storage shed began to form at the top of the trail. The winter struck and the little building was buried under snow and ice. The Neo KGB discerned his activity in the forest and sent legions of harpies to impede his attempt to build the American dream. Pedro suffered a dislocated should and then a torn rotator cuff and left for the winter in a small open boat from the edge of the forest traveling down the coast a couple of hundred miles. The further adventures of Pedro interested Simagin, yet he had pressing details to look at over the killing ground, so he finished the last of the coffee, got up and walked about the area stopping at a pile of remains. He toed up and used a foot to flip over the body that remained about 60% complete

The bankop operative’s remains had a residual glow about them that indicated to Kurt that he had recently been in a capital accumulation vault that marked workers with silodye. There were just a few facilities in the galaxy able to afford the process of infusing quark-dye into the epidermis of visitors.

Kurt was a skeptic concerning the prospects for improvements to the character of the human species that were publicized whenever new facts or speculation about Higgs field related discoveries were made. Gravity occurs at light speed, and that would be natural if light speed is the norm for massless particle/waves or energy not slowed down to three dimensions. When energy becomes entangled from two dimensions to three and becomes embedded in a steady state in the Higgs Field, the aggregation of mass in the field reshapes the field and draws other mass toward it in field curvature. The field itself may act at the speed of light and create the appearance of gravity acting at the speed of light. If the field is expanding or is something is acting upon the field that isn’t of the three-dimensional mass the Higgs Field could seem to be causing space to expand. There is an obvious way to regard that condition though; aggregation of mass that causes the Field to warp and attract mass may reciprocally expand space of the field bereft of elements of the field drawn in the Higgs Field and mass interactive aggregation situation.

Gravity is a marvelous thing. If it is an appearance because people see through a glass darkly embedded in the mass of particle/waves slowed down to sub-light speed in the Higgs Field, humans at least have the promise of discovering how it arises someday. Like the time when Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son Isaac by God, and Abraham showed he had such faith in God existing so as to be regarded as worthy of the promise, the appearance of gravity on this side of the cloud of unknowing may someday be rewarded by the saving grace of truth appearing; as when God sacrificed His Son Jesus Christ to save all of those of faith. The truth will set gravity theorists free.

Some people wonder about the relationship of God to the Universe and how the theory of evolution juxtaposes with the explanation of creation provided in the Bible. The accounts of contemporary cosmology and of the book of Genesis aren’t in necessary contradiction or even in conflict as superficial reading or analysis indicates to some, though most haven’t troubled to look to far into either field. Consider what an eternal being who could create a Higgs field with a thought, or a thought of a field that has always existed like a library of every possible idea or universe that could ever exist, completely existing with God, would want to tell beings in a universe or thermodynamic process that he actualized, about how it came to be. Kurt imagined imagining what kind of reconciliation he would try and thought that He might say briefly that; “I saw nothingness and brought light to it and over a period of time -days for you I will call them since general relativity wasn’t existing yet nor even special relativity or energy and mass- I brought stars and dust to exist and man evolved innocently in an Eden of blissful ignorance until he/you/they grew smart enough to cultivate orchards, plant crops and etc. You were de facto booted out of Eden, into clothing, guilt with the knowledge of good and evil’s difference and into the realm of Cain kills his brother Abel just to continue evolving in a wild format until I tried to correct your existential estrangement from my way of peace, wisdom and so forth. Your first civilization, incidentally, was located at a spot that is now beneath the Persian Gulf. At least there was one guy who followed my warnings about the rising global sea level during the end of the Wisconsin ice age. He; Noah and his family, build a boat and survived the flood that drowned those wicked people that kept going on with their immoral drift of destruction. Noah’s sons went out to people living south of the Mediterranean Sea and became leaders, somewhat like the Verangian Vikings became leaders of Slavs living around the city they founded at Kiev. Hey, that brings you up to Charles Darwin and the present time with all of the interesting questions you can create concerning the paradoxes of the Higgs field, of mass, energy, space, time, a plethora of universes and modal logic possibilities without end.
It is a great time to be alive except for the planetary destruction of the ecosphere and so forth. The problem about ignoring my son’s (Jesus Christ) prophecy concerning the great first century tribulation should have been surprising to me yet it wasn’t of course. Some of you are still looking for a great tribulation and take that paradigm as an excuse to keep destroying the environment and to stop building the kingdom of God up on Earth through an egalitarian, literate priesthood of believers. I am supposed to be resting now though, so I’ll get back to you on that.”
Kurt listened to the gently flowing water of the livid river and contemplated the fate of the corpse. Was the bankop saved? He thought that very unlikely, and remembered fragments of Baxter’s ethics written so many centuries before from Directory IX. ‘When you have found yourselves in a state of sin and death, understand and consider what a state that is.’ It may be you will think it a tolerable condition, and linger in it, as if you were safe; or delay your repentance, as if it were a matter of no great haste; unless you open your eyes, and look round about you, and see in how slippery a place you stand. Let me name some instances of the misery of an unregenerate, graceless state, and then judge of it as the Word of God directs you.
As long as you are unconverted, you must needs be loathsome and abominable to God^. His holy nature is unreconcilable to sin, and would be unreconcilable to sinners, if it were not that he can cleanse and purify them. Did you know what sin is, and know God’s holiness, you would understand this much better. Your own averseness to God, and your dislike of the holiness of his laws and servants, might tell you what thoughts he hath of you. “He hateth all the workers of iniquity’.” Indeed, he taketh you for his enemies, and as such he will handle you, if you be not converted.
Some think it strange that any men should be called ” haters of God;” and I believe you will find it hard to meet with that man that will confess it by himself, till converting grace or hell constrain him. And indeed, if God himself had not charged men with that sin, and called them by that name, we should scarce have found belief or patience when we had endeavored to convince the world of it.
Why did the world hate Christ himself? He tells you,” The world cannot hate you, but me it hateth, because I testify against it, that the works thereof are evil’.””This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved dark rather than light, because their deeds were evil”
It is a wonder of blindness, that this God-hating world and age, should not perceive that they are God-haters, while they hate his servants to the death. and implacably rage against them, and hate his holy ways and kingdom, and bead all their power and interest in most of the kingdoms of the world, against his interest and his people upon earth: while the devil fights his battles against Christ through the world, by their hands, they will yet confess the devil’s malice against God, but deny their own; as if he used their hands without their hearts”
The traveler’s world was littered with micro-surveillance grains scattered like dust from globe encompassing drones. Kurt asked his smart unit to check the status of the chess engine first responder to live threats anywhere on the planet. It would know if macro-sized opposition forces were active and determine the best countermeasures as controller even scaled up to battlefield size. Nothing active was indicated the smart speaker said. Kurt thought that strange yet not entirely inconsistent with modern tech.
Maybe bankop constructions were doomed to fail, being too small of socio-economic stature to rate any sort of success. Kurt took a biological survey unit from his carry belt and reached down to scoop in some of the less viscous portion of the corpse. Human-like beings are mostly made of water with a few pounds of well-structured chemicals thrown in, and they can be changed quickly or with evolving morphogenesis.
The unit beeped a ready result, so Kurt said; “What is it?”
“The composition is a dead bankop D.N.A. design that catastrophically evolved with input water nano remix to the nonliving compresence sampled.”
Kurt thought about what the unit said for a few seconds then put it back on his belt. He knew that quality D.N.A. rapid evolver agents were costly outside of the prime urban star systems of the galaxy, and this particular composition nine traveler’s world Sendufax was thousands of light years from galaxy urban bands. Therefore, the primary agents of nihilistic evolution were likely to be well-financed.

Sendufax had paradigmatically similar planetary infrastructure to that of common travelers’ worlds built at useful locations. Within its core was an adjustable gravity dynamo that contained concentrated heavy metal mass. The mass characteristics could be increased with super-positioned particles entangled around the galaxy emerging at targeted spots as virtual mass increasing and altering the mass structure up the periodic table beyond Einsteinium to heavier forms of packing. Kurt adjusted the gravity dynamo’s field characteristics with a multi-tool controller on his belt to lighten Sendufax’s field a little so he could move about the world a little easier. He knew he had a long day ahead of him and thought conserving energy a good idea.

Kurt looked at Zvimmer and said; “Hey Yo, I have thought of something that reminds me of how problems expand. Maybe we will get a clue on how to narrow down the avenues of egress and identity of the agency that perpetrated the slaughter of the bankops littered about. And need I remind you not to chow down on any of the poor sod’s remains. Consider the infinite expansion of the dough of the Cookie-verse.”

Zvimmer growled.
“No worry Zvimmer, this is an analogy of edification. Scientists running experiments at cosmological scale and quantum ingredient size determined that the doughspace of the Cookieverse is expanding. What is more, is that the Cookieverse isn’t unique; it is just one of an infinite number of cookies cut out and baked from a singularity on a cookie sheet that inflated faster than light for a fraction of a second (relatively speaking). When the expansion stopped each cookie at its own special moment baked itself with a big bang and its own fine-temperature randomly selected cookie law constants to become a cookie in time with thermodynamics bring it to consume itself and gradually be digested in some instances by sentient being evolved within a cookie.

Each cookie verse if it had sentient products evolving from its special constant physical values (selected by random chance from a nearly infinite number of variables & model cookie recipes is simpler with an infinite number of variables and with constants being just nominal selections of ingredient baking temperatures and times) would find its sentients consuming the cookie itself.

Sentients within a cookie-verse would learn that the constants of the cookie that are baked in might have been very different indeed. Instead of gravity having the value of coconuts it might have been sugar sprinkles. Instead of various quantum values of vanilla it might have been chocolate or peppermint etc. The most informative and marvelous discovery of cookie baker mathematician scientists for-themselves might have been the discovery that besides eternal inflation of cookie dough and infinite cookieverses, each cookie-verse dough from a cookie sheet branch would expand in an infinite number of directions in what was modeled as the infinite dimensions of Hilbert space.

Gauss Hilbert was one of the greatest of cookie baking theorists of all time. He consulted with Albertus Einstein concerning the nature of cookie dough in the general and special theories of cookie dough. Cookie dough was determined to stretch or collapse under the influence of dark matter (a very special ingredient) as opposed to dark energy that can expand space time again within a baked cookie. Evidently cookie dough space can reappear within baked cookies as cookie-verses remain within the eternal realm of the Great Cookie hosting all cookie-verses. Our cookie-verse was discovered to have resumed expanding about 25 years ago and may accelerate until it no longer could be said to exist, yet after the cookie-verse has consumed itself with thermodynamics. This seems to be a self cleaning oven implicitly contained within the space dough.

The Great Cookie-verse is comparable to an infinite fractal that can create infinite branch and cookie sheets within itself and infinite dimensions with the signal difference that all of its cookies have variable constants for there seems to be nothing constant except values of expansive space dough and mathematical forms representing cookie verse values, the latter being constant in the sense they are always subject to change in the Parmenidean sense of water flowing under the bridge always changing yet the river never changes as well as the opposite viewpoint of Heraclitus that one can never step into the same river twice because it is always changing. What is in motion stays in motion except for the object itself because it is only moving in relation to other objects that aren’t or that are moving at a different speed. The Great Cookie is marvelous an may occupy no more actual space than a singularity- an idea in the thought of the Great Cookie baker with the hyperdimensional variable fractals requiring no space to exist within at all.”

Isn’t it about time we move upriver toward the settlement on the Haitian mesa? Common Zvimmer. Kurt started walking along the river bank; Zvimmer got up and trotted alongside.
“Yes Zvimmer; the local region of dough on a cookie sheet that breaks off in one of ten to the 500th power varieties of phase space to become a uniquely valued Cookieverse, except for an infinite number of other inaccessible cookies with the same initial local constants, was the model for astrophysics cookie baker researches informing us of the nature of the Great cookie containing all Cookieverses and space dough.”
Zvimmer dropped the bone he had in his mouth and tilted his head to look curiously at Simagin.

Kurt stopped for a minute along the path following the Livid River northwest. He and Zvimmer wore foot to calf length field boots protecting them from lower extremity attacks and providing a ten-fold increase over human strength. Field operatives seldom contracted ankle or knee injuries if they were human, and if not, the damaged extremity could be replaced with replaceable snap-in leg units. Kurt and Zvimmer had made planetfall from a near speed of light event retro-drop originating at a local diminished worlds alliance entrepot base named Cargone. After landing with powered-chutes floating and collecting star electrons in descent the equipment was switched off to lower opposition force surveillance detection signatures. Simagin now activated the power legs for Zvimmer and himself.
The sky turned blood red and an ominous wind arose throwing a haze of Sendufaxan dust aloft occluding vision. Sendufax was locked in a stationary geocentric orbit mid-way between twin red dwarf stars orbiting one another. Evidently the color compensation unit for the planet had switched off. Kurt thought that not a good sign. He and Zvimmer continued on their way toward the high Haitian mesa gradually increasing slope decreasing the distance between themselves and the Traveler’s world settlement of Gold Plum.

Along the path the river flowed past the point of nihilism named for an early in Sendufaxan history conflict where an Obelisk commemorated the culminating skirmish. A few more bankop bodies were strewn here. Zvimmer pawed one such as used both front paws to dig next to it. His work revealed a yellow brick, so Kurt walked over to take a look.
“Move aside Zvim; let me see what you’ve found.”
Zvim trotted away to survey other corpses that were more fresh than the last group a mile southwest. Kurt kicked away more dirt revealing more brick units of what was apparently a yellow brick road beneath the Livid River path. An interesting finding he thought and filed away in memory. He said;
“Let’s go Zvim; it’s time to move on.”

Desert lands were less expensive to develop than forestland and mountains on Traveler’s worlds so deserts tended to be the most common environment encountered. Mountains were even costlier because of the lop-sided gravity balancing compensators required to stabilize a planet with unequally allocated mass at a planetary surface. Zvim and Kurt liked mountains though so they experienced increase alienness passing through the red haze of the desert moving quickly toward a broad, elevated mesa becoming visible in the distance.

With so many bankop casualties; far more than Kurt expected to find from his info-brief supplied by the company client, it was easy to infer that something meaningful had occurred here; a conflict involving property of some kind usually as that was the source of most conflicts. Kurt had a direct-fire weapon ready though hoping not to need to use it soon. He queried his aux memory chip in the battery defense vest about the Haitian settlement.
The A.I. said; the settlement of Golden Plum as 100 regular service personnel and the Markmuster Inn rooms for three-hundred. The Inn has a level four security vault; more than is required for ordinary travelling security, advanced communications at a facility owned by a shell corporation the identity of which is screened. Incidentally thirty of the one-hundred persons on the Markmuster staff are security personnel; that is quite a large number for an ordinary traveler’s world.”
Atop the Mesa Kurt saw a few explosions, laser lights in the red gloom. He and Zvim increased their pace in the attempt to reach Golden Plum before the end of the conflict.

Simagin and Zvimmer’s increasing pace covered the remaining five miles to Golden Plum in a few minutes. The war in a teacup raged on. Kurt and Zvimmer dropped to the ground at the crest approach to the mesa to survey the battle to discern participants before entering the fray.

Golden Plum was being battered, bruised and assaulted with multi-phase techno weapons from a so far invisible attacker. Kurt saw bank operative cadre like those on the path below falling to the soil, variegated in posichs of killing insults to life. Kurt and Zvimmer experienced a distracting, painful audio buzz of weaponized infrasound that was evidently settle-wide as an element of full spectrum battle with obvious nuclear and atomic disarrays excised from the battle toolkit. As Kurt and Zvimmer rose to get a closer look a sudden explosion through the roof of the Markmuster Inn was followed by a bright as a nuke extrusion broadbeam fading off above the world into nothingness while the last bankop and security personnel were smoldering lumps on the ground.
Walking carefully into Golden Plumb it was obviously squashed down to the stage or requiring complete replacement by the Dwindling Worlds tourist bureau. They surveyed the scene of macabre death with bodies flung like wet hot cooked spaghetti strands onto the exterior of the Markmuster. Kurt whistled to Zvimmer to stay on guard before entering the Inn.
The hotel lobby was a shambles and before the front desk was a gaping thirty foot smoking hole going deep below to an empty Level four security vault. Kurt shot an explosive climbing bolt into the front desk and fast roped down to the fourth subterranean level of the vault. It was empty; he wondered what had been within it that was worth annihilating one hundred souls. Kurt zipped up the rope to the surface and walked over the lobby to the main door.

Exiting the Markmuster Kurt and Zvimmer found what remained of the security and communication building. Plainly commo had been cut early in the battle. Kurt’s client must have been in a local region of the galaxy- or at least had a branch base close enough to Sendufax to learn of the initial phase of attack and hire his company to send someone to look into it. Maybe they were located on Cargone like himself and able to respond quickly. Kurt found some component spares and restored to communications to let H.Q. know of his finding of the state of Sendufax.

Kurt and Zvimmer after exiting the Inn walked over to a debris free plaza somewhat centralized amidst the wreckage. Kurt said to Zvimmer; “Yo, I hate to say that we haven’t anything to eat, I believed we could grab a bite here at one of the settlement’s restaurants. Why don’t you go out and scout about for a few dumb animal steaks in one of the refrigerator units of the stores and I will build a small global warming campfire to flame em over.”
Zvim eagerly loped off on his quest to find dinner. Kurt gathered firewood from shattered building facades and window frames and carried it to a fire-pit that he excavated with a small frag grenade. The suddenly as a dark cloud could block sunlight, the red sky darkened further and the dust storm that had yet to abate.
A peanut star atmospheric entry ship descend unto the edge of the plaza, blew its hatch and from it strode a tall woman dressed in a transparent business suit wearing a specop combat battery helmet. The suit absorbed and recycled all bodily waste before adding some of its content with structure support atoms into the wearer over time fading away to nothing. When it was perfectly clear it was a fresh issue, gradually changing color toward the end of its life. Business field suits absorbed energy and useful molecular structures from the environment, including oxygen. She looked directly at Kurt who was some 60 meters away and walked toward him.
“I see from your D.N.A. patterns that you are Kurt Simagin. I am Loren Klure from the Dwindling Worlds accounting office. They sent me here about the same time as you via your company h.q., yet I was farther away aboard a Tachycore space vessel investigating a meta-issue and was retasked here to survey the Sendufax vault. It is, or was, a classified high level secure temporal vault we used to cache advanced intellectual capital patents enroute to more secure facilities.”
“Well I can tell you Loren that your secure vault is quite empty. Some kind of particle beam emerged from it and disappeared into offwhirld space when I arrived. We were about to start making dinner arrangements, would you like to join us for flamed dumb meat?”
“Who else is with you?”
“My smart coyote, Zvimmer.”
As if on cue Zimmer arrived with a sealed pack of several dumb meat steaks certified from Veggimanitarians to have been grown pain-free salvaged from a local spiffy-mart.
Zvim dropped the steaks at Kurt’s feet and trotted over to smell the new arrival. She patted his head briefly and Zvimmer returned to sit near the fire looking outwardly on watch for untoward movement down likely avenues of approach.
Kurt took a few sharp metal fragments from a cheap statue destroyed in a blast and fashioned several skewers for the meat setting them with the meat above the dry wood he set burning with a micro-torch.

Loren walked over and sat down on a crushed electro-float transporter followed by Kurt.
She said; let’s talk about what happened here Simagin. I am a forensic accountant for the office, or was initially before specialized training in a related field, and think it would be useful to compare ideas with you concerning the exfiltrated or destroyed intellectual capital that has more value than we can put a price on.”

“Yeah, well Zvim and I found a skein of skirmish casualties of your bankops down the Livid River. I would guess bankops investigating unusual scouting presence signs were on-scene and terminated by the opposition element that moved swiftly to fully engage the limited and ineffective bankops security people stationed here. Bankops downriver encountered the lead element of a superior force and were directly rolled up by the opposition who took the intellectual capital from the Markmuster Inn and exfiltrated to points unknown. How is that Loren?”
“Good enough Kurt; and logical. The Dwindling worlds have experienced loss of intellectual props that emerge in a variety of forms elsewhere and elsewhen about the infinite Meta-verse. Reasonably enough we would like to slow down or stop the thefts and sabotages.
Zvimmer moved in to look at the steaks that were becoming well done dripping juicy sizzling fat into the fire. Kurt moved a skewer off to let a steak cool for Zimmer. He asked Loren; “How do you like yours Loren?”
“Medium rare would be fine Kurt.”
“So it is Loren” he said handing her a skewer with a large chunk of very tender dumb beast meat slaughtered with compassionate butchering.
Loren said;”There are two basic forms of government for human worlds these days Kurt. Those that seek to concentrate wealth in a tiny minority and make slave laborers and happy work minions of everyone else, and those that prefer free enterprise and democracy with limits to capital acquisition as it threatens the integrity of elections and enterprise. The Dwindling worlds as you may be aware prefer free enterprise with capital concentration defense caps as a better way to develop human potential. Corporatism and even communism share imperial political goals in the sense that power is concentrated and the majority are repressed and conditioned by the minority holding the reins of wealth and power. We suspect that the theft of the intellectual from the Sendufax vault was directed by our opposition forces and affiliates. The number of minions working to make slaves of themselves and to become subjects of imperial forces is fundamentally without limit. Evidently a modicum of intelligence and creative thought is requisite for comprehending the nature of imperial-corporatist-communist political power concentration.”
Kurt had taken his own skewer of dumb beast steak and took a large bite. “This steak is pretty tasty” he said.
“Yes, it is very agreeable” Loren replied taking another bite.
“In my opinion”, said Kurt continuing on Loren’s idea, “elites concentrating wealth and power would seek to objectively transform human subjects into quantitative mass for simpler processing and utilization. Mass social identity cloned into archetypes with psychological conditioning, individual identity and differentiation of thought restricted and eliminated whenever possible, reducing human society to quantities of material existence, input, output and throughput vectors most useful for the further concentration of wealth and power to the elites with the reciprocal of human herd contentedness in becoming total subject minions of the elites.”
“That is a grim way to put it Kurt, though accurate enough. A corollary would be the theft of intellectual properties from independent worlds and individuals within a broader spectrum war on objectively independent, nonconformist to power singularities free enterprise, egalitarian democratic-republic planets.”
Zvim watched the pair of humans for signs of beast poisoning entrapment, and satisfied that the meat was clean of poison traps went to the skewer and took his piece of beast steak in his teeth.
Kurt said; “When you finish off the meat why don’t you look around the settlement for anything that would help us discover who and where the perps are and went Yo?”
Yo with his steak trotted off into the red darkness of Golden Plum.
“Seeing the night through rose colored glasses can become tiresome, I will ask the office to expedite restoration of Sendufax”, and she spoke to a link to her ship in stationary position above the atmosphere.

“I’ve encountered corporate religions at the edge of a few of the empires I have encountered over the years. They tend to become syncretistic and jettison inconvenient elements from historical holy books like the Christian/Jewish Bible. In some societies Sunday worship comprises viewing commercial entertainment sporting events.”
‘Those are troubling histories Kurt, yet consider that atheism and avarice are normalized elite characteristics even if it is avarice for power and control of all others. They may take up the sadist’s pleasure of controlling the interior of others- that is the thoughts and minds of sentient beings in order to support their self-conception as ontological gods.
I don’t know if you have given it much thought; there are n number of possible economic configurations for a world, a galaxy and economics locally, yet humans tend to select those that are less than optimal in regard to egalitarian allocations of opportunity for individual maximization of potential, and that are deleterious of the ecosphere within their self-sustaining geotemporal region. Humans are their own monkey wrench to the ecosphere as they develop comfort and power, intelligence and technology. Eventually elites wrench social development and concentrate power to themselves with an occasional false conscious belief that they are benefactors of humanity or of societies by enslaving them. The work of the dwindling worlds is to offset that historical bias with reinforcement of individualism, free enterprise and freedom of religious thought in addition to philosophical and theological license.
We know the Universe has an infinite number of independent sub-universes arising through eternal inflation. Nothing is eternal though that occurs temporally- even if it goes on forever, for time is a relationship between events, an order or ordinal relationship especially concerning thermodynamically subject substance inclusive of space as energy rather than space as true nothingness.
Therefore wrong ideas of elites repressing human free enterprise and thought may have religious destiny consequences…it is possible that the entire Universe with infinite branches is cardinally inferior to the spirit of God. Humans can only know an abstract structure of a theoretical Metaverse much less true knowledge of its boundary conditions that could be spiritual.
What is the shape and form of spirit, or even of Universe infinitely packed in the infinite dimensions of Hilbert space that could occur within a microdot? Quality economics require intelligent economic design from free thinking, free enterprising, spiritual beings Kurt.
So we of the Dwindling worlds have constructed neural networks of planets amidst the galactic wildernesses to create syntegrity for our artificial and human intelligence enterprise of grand scale that may be able to investigate more deeply regions of the Metaverse that are hard to reach. It is devastating for us to have the material avarice of elite subjugators and galaxy conquerors steal our intellectual capital for-themselves.”
“Sure, I agree with you Loren. You know my coyote has been gone a little bit too long and his location transponder has gone dark. Do you mind if I go off for a while to find Him?
“No, of course not Kurt. Go find your coyote. I will look into the vault for residuals.”
Kurt wandered off into Golden Plumb’s darkness probing its farther reaches for a sign of Zvim. He found an unusual three dimensional hologram standing wave image of a female coyote at the ruins of a police station, at its base was one of Zvim’s power boots. Kurt walked over to it, not wary enough, reached for it and was immediately drawn through into an elsewhen trap.
As he spun through confusement space his reading in basic astrophysical structures popped into mind. Elsewhen traps connect alternative universe threads into one of infinite numbers of infinite dimensions with infinite numbers of universes themselves. It’s is highly recommended that even explorers should eschew elsewhen transportation yet elsewhen traps were commonly used by aliens in adjacent fractal universe permutations to snag unwary sentients downward toward their own regions of being. Usually the dimensional matrices of universes trapping human were close to our own, so it was reasonable to leave a breadcrumb trail of altered string scale format along the course of travel to the new universe system branch through modification of inflation space characteristics that would hold shape for a while yet leave permanent formation traces upon pre-big banging incipient universes associated with local inflation space as locked in values of constants.
Kurt set loose an inflaton space agitating string vibrator from his camobattery defense vest to superposition heatless, massless, non-dimensional proto-string points trailing in his wake. Where he would end up only the aliens knew for sure. As he spun through the darkness he thought of the Lord and the Word’s capacity to shape all physical constants of every existing Universe as if they were ideas as spiritual moments of meaning appearing like predestined conformal streams in-themselves.

Loren finished her dumb beast steak, stood up and looked about for Kurt who wasn’t in sight through three hundred and sixty degrees. The ruins of Golden Plumb were smoldering and as unsettled as the dust storm continuing to stir Sendufax. She decided to venture to the Markmuster Inn to inspect the vault for herself.

Sophia grabbed the rope still attached to the front desk and moderated her descent four floor down with a magnetic rope climbing clip. She interfaced with thought sensors to control the pace down the magnetic cord to the vault floor.

The walls were made of strong data security bricks mostly impervious to burning, flooding and electromagnetic pulse insults. Though scorched by some great heat the data bricks would contain an exceedingly large volume of recoverable data bits. So Loren took an adherence control flexible tablet from her field kit bag, fixed it to the wall and moved her fingers deftly over the tablet’s i/o field programming it silently to interrogate and exfiltrated all reversible data and relay it upward to her ship above the atmosphere; the Space Vessel (SV) Shibboleth.

Within a few seconds a highlight audio stream of the salient facts of recent Sendufaxan history played for her in brain sound synthesizer from a stream sent from the Shibboleth’s mainframe.

Loren learned of the nature of the attack and attackers while she reattached her climbing clip to the mag rope and lifted upward to the lobby desk where she detached from the magnocord and walked towards and through the front entrance.

Kurt still hadn’t returned so she continued her inspection of Golden Plumb. The sensors that had observed events on the planet until those of Golden Plumb were destroyed were of no use in locating Kurt or his coyote. She continued carefully walking about until reaching the devastated police station. The first thing that she saw was coyote’s boot in front of the large image of a female coyote. She recognized a honey trap and looking a little closer discerned that an almost invisible someplace-elsewhen trap was the host of the image of the coyote.

So much for Kurt and Zvimmer she thought. I wish them luck wherever they are. She returned to her peanut orbiter and lifted off to mate with the Shibboleth and begin fine tuning the mission parameters in pursuit of the destroyers of Golden Plumb and theft of seven hundred and twenty-one trilobytes of intellectual capital.

The SV Shibboleth was a hive of forensic accounting activity with hundreds of astro accounts searching the stars and galaxies for a hint of intelligent dark energy design fraud. Dark energy was a favorite tool of the freebooters working for The Criminal Empire to insert an expanding barrier of space between honest Dwindling star systems and their construction at the edge of the observable region of the Metaverse. With resource systems beyond any immediate sort of space tunneling control systems from the honest Dwindling star systems that were just inhabited sparsely with Dwindling planet’s employees pirates found them ripe for easy plundering when they filled the sky overhead.

Loren exited her peanut shell and received visual input of the final salient events on Sendufax near and in Golden Plum. With live input active memory she saw inner visions downloaded via implant from the Shibboleth’s mainframe that included the hull of the ship with shaped-hull neural processing architecture.
A zero optical signature camouflage carrier black body ship opened its door near the Lived River of many slaughters south of the point of nihilism. It released a legion of invisible flying attack drones colorized by the Shibboleth’s A.I. for Loren to see. More emerged from beneath the soil of Sendufax to slaughter the A.I. in a multi-spectrum barrage of insults to existence. More raced quite fast up the Lived to attack Golden Blum began a systematic, quick termination of sentient life.
The Markmuster Inn though a security level four facility was a paper tiger to the overwhelming combined force of hundreds of drones reinforced by the drones that had eliminated bank operatives downstream. The black body carrier hopped from downstream with Golden Plum subdued and landed in the plaza in front of the Markmuster stationary a foot above the ground and opened its door once more to disgorge one grim figure; a Commandante Heneral Cheryl Scaldeen the Shibboleth’s A.I. political intelligence related. Apparently she had appeared at other robbery massacres in recent encounters of the bloodiest sort. Loren thought it good to know the face of the enemy instead of needing to chase an invisible empire.

The Criminal Imperial Empire had overt and covert branches of activists as well as special espionage operatives scattered around numerous galaxies in which were located the primary resources of the Dwindling worlds; formerly known as worlds with stable prospects. Yet where to look for a clue to the location of the invisible empire or even the support base for Commandante Heneral Scaldeen?

President Biden’s square peg for a round hole infrastructure bill method needs revision

 President Biden should be more innovative on packaging plans for an infrastructure bill. Infrastructure are those physical systems that allow a mass economy to physical work. That doesn’t include day care obviously. President Biden is a lawyer though- and lawyers represent people and know the laws well and often haven’t any idea about much else. They aren’t for example ecological economists with transparent before and after election ideas concerning how to reform the economy. Economists tend to be far more transparent than lawyers that have secret agendas and issues hidden from the public as a part of their job description. He shouldn’t antagonize Republicans with polarizing gun control to compel a disarmed populace agenda and ignore real economic issues.

President Biden has many female supports- his clients as it were, who want day care centers so he has grafted that onto a large transportation bill and skipped something like very high speed trains for cargo and people from coast to coast and along the Minneapolis and Chicago to Houston corridor that would be a legitimate infrastructure improvement bill. The President should find another way to get day care going besides the infrastructure bill. I suggest he give a tax moratorium for day care businesses for five years. A five year no tax policy for day care centers might elicit lots of new businesses. An oil depletion tax allowance existed forever so there is precedence for giving tax breaks to big business at least, and even solar panel manufacturers have been given tax credits; those are things the former senator should know all about.

So a little creative packaging President Biden… get than one trillion dollar tax bill with 500 m.p.h. trains or tube-maglev or vacuum-tube underground platforms installed and conventional bridges, solar power producing-sunlight reflecting highways and maybe liquid hydrogen fueled underground superconducting power lines in pipelines funded and just let free enterprise given a tax moratorium build the future Wal-marts day care facilities or maybe just a flood of very small business entrepreneurs supply the demand for a place for people to maroon their kids while they go off to work or cruise in their high-emission suvs and very large trucks to wait in line at McDonalds for high calorie breakfast sausage patty, eggs, bread and nuggets on the way to work at the oil corporation.

The President probably means well, yet it’s necessary to strategize correctly, intelligently to get bills passed that have any quality environmentally and economically. For instance, the idea of running vast left wing public deficits is a loser. A balanced budget is intelligent and has several good selling points generally. Getting Republicans to vote for any sort of tax increase isn’t going to happen and wastes a lot of public time. To get a tax increase done that has some kick the Democrats will have to pass it themselves on their one per year magic wish of 61 votes. Like the Bush 2/Obama tax cuts a Biden tax increase would change things if it was 60% per year on earnings greater than one million dollars and for corporations- a flat 30% annual tax.

Republicans these days fail to understand populism at all (hint Reagan was a populist) and can’t run good Presidential candidates with charisma. Neither can they comprehend like Nixon did about how to build a majority (another hint- don’t serve the poor a dope sandwich or treat the ecosphere like they were combat commercial fisherman fighting over the last fish and incapable of keeping an escapement quota of 2/3rds of the fish in the sea). President Biden apparently plans to continue with Trump plans to Vietnamize the Afghan-Taliban war by September 11th, and some remember how well ARVN allies worked out the last time. The U.S.A. still has military in Germany 70 years after the end of the Second World War and thirty years after the end of the cold war, yet the administration sees no wisdom in keeping even a couple of regiments In Afghanistan for another decade or two. That may be penny wise and pound foolish policy even as the President seeks to invest a half trillion dollars in day care ‘infrastructure’ in the U.S.A.

Some U.S. wingers are pretty ignorant about Jewish history in Jerusalem

 The American left probably is ill-informed about the history of Jerusalem and the Jews that have lived there during the past 4000 years. They really aren’t invaders. In fact not only have Muslims persecuted them and driven them from the city, so have Romans, Persians and Europeans especially the crusaders.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_and_Judaism_in_the_Land_of_Israel#Byzantine_period_(324%E2%80%93638)

Christians of the middle ages misunderstood the message of Jesus Christ (the prince of peace) and acted with Christianity as a political-military banner; most were illiterate. Of course Muslims had invaded Europe from one end to the other and were a constant threat to European existence. In 1099 when the first crusaders took the Holy land they slaughtered Jews mercilessly. Even so Jews continued to live in the region of Israel even while Jerusalem was off-limits.

Jews must have been accustomed to being banned from the Holy city after Romans, Byzantines and Sassanians enforced that edict. Mamluks and even the Umayyad proscribed select Jewish activities and foisted a temple of Muhammad onto the temple mount.

Israel was occupied by empires that sometimes tolerated their existence in the area yet sometimes razed coastal cities. Modern Euros and American leftists tend to think of Jews as an invading, colonizing force because they essentially are daft and devoid of historical depths.

Palestinians could from the beginning have lived peacefully with Jewish in a two state configuration of 1948 and they instead began their 70 years of hate mongering at that time dedicating themselves to the destruction of Israel. Yet Palestine had never been an independent state for itself and was generally under the rule of empires- lastly the British after they defeated the Muslim Ottoman Empire that was allied with imperial Germany during the First World War. Fundamentally hate groups like Hamas (it means violence) could have at any time selected a path to peace for-themselves. As the closest neighbors of the Jewish state they likely would evolve greater prosperity than most of those nations of the Middle East and hold jobs in Israel more so than now. Some borders can fade into trivialities when nations have non conflicts and similar economies.

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/555458-jewish-democrats-call-for-ambassador-to-combat-antisemitism-condemn-colleague

It is quite likely that Jews are smarter than Palestinians. World chess champions like Fischer and Kasparov were half Jewish. It is difficult to recall all of the great Jewish chess players because there were so many while the best Palestinian player at the last chess Olympiad rated somewhere around 1600. Jews could mentor their Palestinian brothers and sisters if the Palestinians weren’t teaching hate to their children and if Hamas’ gangster leaders could discover the value of peace.

If the American left just prefers to be wrong that is their free choice. Plainly the Republican Party hasn’t an ecological economic bone in its body and seek only to concentrate wealth. Democrats though also pursue that policy it should be noted, and socialist seek merely to make a bureaucracy of corporatism that is following Hitler’s economic agenda before the start of W.W. 2 to a certain extent.

I will point out that one of the scenarios for world economic evolution is for concentrated wealth and a planet full of wage slaves. Even space colonization of mars and etc. will be led by elites who can greatly assist the process of concentrating wealth. The left should have other realistic concerns than persecuting Jews as if they wanted to be Nazis too.

Terms of mapping the Universe-Pluralverse

If space is a substance rather than plain nothingness as has been traditionally thought, it should have a universal composition and nature that would in a way be comparable to quantum structures. If inflation is an expansion of space rather than some other cause, because more space substance seems to be created and fills an increasing volume, that seems opposed to the idea of nothingness expanding.

Nothingness as space in the absolute sense should neither be created or destroyed. It ought logically to have existed infinitely forever and isn’t capable of increasing or decreasing. Space as a substance on the other hand could have been initially finite to alternatively infinite and existing within the underlying host of nothingness.

There are several definitions of space as well as Universe these days that help to confuse the topics one is addressing for others. There are logical modal universes and alternate universes such as one finds in multi-universe theories derived from eternal inflation.

I wanted to point out that if inflation of space occurs forever as a localized process that moves on leaving nonexpanding space in its wake, that it is just as likely that the boundaries of substance-space move on through already existing infinite space, or bring more substance space within its moving boundary region as that substance space itself upsurges into being from nothingness. Of course one might infer that if substance space upsurges into being that it must be from somewhere other than the present region of its expansion.

The Universe is everything that exists. It is generally regarded as being made of energy or converted to mass, yet it is everything and logically infinite. Modern science has provided a wealth of confusion concerning what formerly was simple and given humanity the ‘multiverse’.

   When I was a kid the Hoyle hypothesis was still hanging on although heavily tattered. Einstein believed in a  static universe. I would guess he believed it infinite as did I when I first learned about those things at age 6 or 7. The profusion of Multiverse jargon since then has required a rethinking, yet ultimately the meaning of Universe remains intact as everything that exists rather than one part of a vast structure with an infinite number of others similar  to it connected by space or even juxtaposed in Hilbert space with infinite dimensions. Just because scientists discover new facts about the Universe concerning its structure that doesn’t mean they have discovered alternate Universes; it just indicates they did not know what the structure was of the Universe they were in.  The Universe is everything that exists including a goggleplex of other units inconveniently named universe 1 through infinity.

  Most people including scientists didn’t know the real structure of the Universe in 1950 yet most people probably assumed it was infinite and unbounded. When cosmologists, theoretical physicists and astronomers inducted, discovered and theorized about an expansion of their knowledge of the Universe and extrapolated  about other regions of space forming from inflation proceeding the Big Bang that may have continued after this observed Universe formed some 13.3 billion years ago more or less as the crow flies they choose to call those hypothetical regions of unobservable space universes too; primarily because they lacked a term for a meta-universe or greater universe that included all possible hypothetical universes of which there might be an infinite number. Basically they lacked a name for the new units of universe so they called it a Multiverse; and that was a bad choice though convenient for scientists at that time.

  Most people had an existing concept of an infinite unbounded Universe already yet lacked knowledge of its distant structure. Modern cosmology has been mapping in fact and with theory, hypothetical structures of space that include possibly an unlimited number of regions of space like the one scientists  knew before the rise of Multiverse theory. In a way a universe has been downgraded comparatively to the status of a galaxy. It as if scientists believed there was just one galaxy (Universe) and having found more or hypothesized about more existing galaxies existing they have developed multigalaxy theory. That is fine for galaxies yet doesn’t work with a Universe that should rightly be defined as everything that exists including that which cannot be observed. Plainly there isn’t a word existing presently for the unit that includes all of the galaxies and mass existing in a contingent expanded spacetime from an inflation or big bang that would disambiguate it from the infinite other potential units like itself. The Universe that includes all the universe-like units could be called the Metaverse reasonably well yet it would be better to name it the Universe and find a named for structures that are like the observable universe humanity lives in. One could call them big units, big bang units, second tier units, temporal verses, boroughs, legally defined regions of largest scale, etc however about any serviceable designation would be better than calling them universes. A universe is a good concept to retain. It is simple and suitable for an infinite and unbounded structure that is unmapped and perhaps unmappable. One day people may find a way to journey transcendentally beyond the boundaries of physical spacetime before death, and if so it might be useful to still regard oneself as being in the Universe when relocating to another unit.

  For an example of the circumstance, compare the Universe to a chess board. A chess board has sixty-four squares and the grid coordinates are labeled columns A through H and rows 1 through 8. Consider that in the past humanity lived in square A1 and thought of themselves as being located in the center of the universe in the middle of square A1. Though their knowledge of the chess  board universe did not exceed beyond square A1 the popular belief was that the Universe square had no limits and was infinite in extant (some humans did have other beliefs). After a few thousand years- within the past century and a half, scientists have learned more about the chess board and have observed the visible horizon limits of square A1 where they lived and developed  theories  concerning a vast number  of squares like their own existing beyond the edge or boundaries of A1. They call those new squares universes instead of regarding them as distant and almost inaccessible areas of the infinite Universe. It would have been useful to rename the new squares or theoretical squares as different areas of a universe without limits or for this analogy, a chessboard in Hilbert space with infinite dimensions and without an edge for-itself although it hosts/contains all space-time unit big banged squares.

 Physical space and energy quanta plus fields may not be the sole form of being; scientists seem willing to believe so though because it is observable and spirit or divine content generally aren’t. The Universe or Metaverse could be a though in the mind of God; who can say? Human language should at least keep a word  to define everything that exists and not regressively dispose of a word (Universe) for the all-encompassing Universe though it can have complex, distant and infinite areas difficult to map with different physical laws and non-contiguous space-time content events. Reducing the Universe comparable to meaning a small county amidst an infinite number of counties makes it challenging for people to understand the actual state of things of cosmology.

Actually, President Biden is running short on time to get stuff done

 If Republicans retake congress President Biden’s opportunity to reform government a little will end. Sure maybe he should rush Covid 19 vaccines to Taiwan and Japan so computer chip making and the U.S. economy can move forward better, yet he needs to get domestic items accomplished now or never.

Those could include building new infrastructure like a vast Mexican border fresh water making canal security boundary desalinating Pacific salt water siphoned or pumped up with pipelines (gosh they can build oil pipelines) and letting solar power evaporate and a plastic lid capture condensation fresh water. He could lead with new hyper-loop high speed (1000 m.p.h). tube trains for passengers and cargo from sea to sea and border to border- to demonstrate how newer faster ground transport can help make autos and select roads obsolete.

He could form a cheap Manhattan project to convert all U.S. road surfaces into sunlight photon capturing and converting surfaces with vast center left-right research, and then find a way to create new wilderness areas without roads and with limited human entry in some places.

It would be good to reform the patent process and limit exclusivity to seven years with 10% royalties to patent holders after that from others then free to manufacture the item. That would speed up economic innovation so some could happen before the end of the world from global warming and federal deficits.

The President could form a truth commission to investigate how much money the Federal Reserve has really let the rich mint via bank loans 5x that of every zero interest loan it gave to big banks exploiting the margin reserve and e-dollars for loans gambit.

Mr. Biden could establish a basic minimum annual income for all Americans so people don’t get permanently caught in economic undertows and socially adverse currents of repression.

College education could be made free through graduate school to allow intelligent Americans to pursue interests equal to their capacity.

The poor should be ale to get free medical service nationally without the state quilt of baloney technical paperwork.

Those earning more than a million annually should have a 60% tax rate.

Some day a President with an advanced degree in ecological economics may appear to lead the country in a transition to a sustainable economy. Yet it seems that just lawyers run on the demo side and Republicans don’t really want the job of President unless to get richer and make the rich richer.

President Biden hasn’t too much time to avoid becoming retrospectively another business as usual kind of top political leaders. Well, maybe he could stimulate production of wheat and soy pasta and noodle products to let the poor have some protein as well as carbohydrates in their diets.

Cosmology and Theistic inferences from ‘Pieces of Eight’

Tis selection is from a science fiction story I wrote- here is an audio reading … https://anchor.fm/garrison-clifford-gibson/episodes/Cosmology-and-Theistic-inferences-from-Pieces-of-Eight-e112ah2

Omniscience might be requisite for flawless design of species evolution. If one configures an evolutionary system to generate a targeted product in a very complex ecosystem with innumerable variables, the likelihood of system errors deforming the system to bring system failure to evolve a desired product are great. Omniscience usefully designs an evolving system such that it’s pre-determined to create the proper product at the right moment.

Top-down modular approaches to flowcharting from T=0 to T=Omega aren’t the only way to format structure. One can have natural and rational numbers with different dimensional variables (joking) for vectors and tensor-sets.

Contingent dream sections may be modularized in chapter-units then placed on some sort of a tree-chart, harvested and set like bricks into a mosaic that is the preferred narrative. If one writes like Jorge Luis Borges the mosaic may be a multi-level circular pyramid with a time axis in several directions.

One might regard the evolution of human life through heterosexual events as an archetype of creation through omniscient configuration of evolution. I suppose when mankind was created and God rested, the designed evolution era ceased and human intelligence became capable of deforming the functioning patterns through genetic redesign and sundry forms of sin for-itself and for-others. Through seven or eight Universes they might find an emergent composite sectional single-verse.

Consider the point that of all the proto-human species that existed the challenges of designing the ecosphere such that just one species would emerge to dominate are incalculable except for omniscience. Some in error believe evolution has no design, or had none in the era in which God created the Universe from emergence in His will to the solar system and let it become peopled before bringing the era of Adamas and Edith to fruition, hence its o.k. to sin and miss the mark of evolving human function and conditional health (everyone is spiritual dead unless reborn with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ).

Looking for a dream on the edge of a desert where night can yield to day and the beginning of the eons of time and history set memories alive and poignant. Bittersweet in that they occur at all before destiny wrests them away, before seasons die and thoughts dissipate to be less than dust; before faces of tomorrow disappear into yesterdays. When living being is given to surpass nothingness from God, who never dies.

When fragments like illusions stir sands of time worn from mountains like Ordovician echoes on a planet, beyond some star, a landscape is given to exist, destinies are given, missions are set.

A ball shaped dimension received a zero dimension singularity- mass-energy went through expansion for a split second (hyperinflaton). One field-mass-energy stretched over the Universe ball. Surface-tension is 4-dimensional space-time. Nowness was stuck on a surface. Ball dimension surges through mass-energy surface tension- dark energy. Voila- A pre-universe ball-shaped dimension with fragments grows up.

Goals that ask for investments of time and effort in-a-world arise. Yet one may never achieve the summit and world picture with endless stories and objects. An empirical world does not forever glisten like a shining city on a lake calling those inducted to the halls of consumerism. A transcending, surprising destiny overcoming the world emerges in the fog of time…something never foreknown waits for being and time to expire.

In the beginning of each Universe first light shown into the darkness. First light on a pre-determined holographic membrane given a particular course and destiny moving through a zero-energy vacuum without friction or exogenous relativistic effects as if it were in free fall not subject to extra-Universal forces. I would never know if God could experience an eternal recurrence of omniscience. Probably He is without a temporal yardstick for-himself. That yardstick for the passage of time is time-for-others.

Each braniverse required a certain surface tension analogue to stay together with orderly coherence. The primordial vacuum state remained so at the pleasure of God whom one infers was the author of any temporal disequilibrium in regard to an orderly neutral mind-field.

I had so many unanswered questions about mass in regard to relativity where it seemed capable of surpassing itself and its own existence. Observations of super-massive black holes have discovered rotational velocities as high as 84% of the speed of light. Can they spin at light speed?

As an object approaches the speed of light its mass scales up toward infinity; so how does that pertain to already super-

massive black holes? Does the special relativistic effect of mass increasing and speed dilating nearing light speed multiply the mass of black holes more than what they are in-themselves? How much of the mass of a black hole can accelerate in proportion to the total mass?

Is the 84% of light speed existent just at the event horizon and less so toward the center? How would the numerous differential rotational speeds and relativistic effects on mass affect the composition and structure of a black hole such that it would be non-uniform in space and time? Are there trans-finite infinities of mass in black holes subject to tensor quantification along the lines of Cantor sets?

If I thought about seven theoretical Universes as the foundation of one Universe today, what mass and volume need it be? No matter. Certainty of the number of fragment Universes was improbable. Each of seven or eight Universes that were to serve as recycled mass for the new Universe had contact with the Spirit of God during eons of their life cycles.

Each knew the sight of a sun and of stars across the Universal depths reaching through their own particular settings of Universal laws to the planets sustaining their existence.

All of the prime eight Universes were hosts to sentient beings programmed from the beginning to be and become; to live and to wonder about the nature of creation; to ask questions concerning the nature of existence and why it exists at all- if it might have meaning. The people of each Universe had the opportunity through the spirit to know God. Some were successful at that even as so many others failed. Many of the latter were content to study mechanics of matter and energy and postulate the existence of all possible Universes from self-generating principles. Natural virtual fields would emanate

charged particles that were charged simply by virtue of being the anti-particle of one oppositely charged or appositely spinning with vector motion defined in eigenvalue states.

Some virtual particles arose from a field of absolute nothingness without charge to exit nothingness and become actual rather than virtual particles without leaving a negative field charge. Subtracting something from nothingness created an unreal negative state in the vacuum. No matter, evolutionary theorists were content with the place of their particular positions within the fields of their particular Universes they regarded as having arisen just through statistical laws of chance. Observations they had made concerning the tendency of disorganized particles to organize within any given volume with a stable state indicated to those without God that their own existence was inevitable and actually necessary considering the nature of mass and energy, particles, waves, strings, branes and singularities.

Even so, when the time of the age of the Universes were fulfilled, after each people had the opportunity to contemplate being and to actualize their particular works, after they had received and accepted or rejected the word of God and been delivered to the spirit or to the experience of eternity without the presence of God, when they had been transliterated back from whatever quantum evolution state they had designed for their social and personal being and delivered to await judgment, the Universes were concluded and rolled up, coincidentally, at a grand conjunction of forms.

At the intersection of the seven or eight Universes corner edges subducted together under gravity to form a white hole through a singularity. The white hole was zero-dimensional from the start, though it had information kept safe with

Shannon stop-loss of data entropy, the newly emergent Universe appeared to have no data in it except for its implicit and minimal yet necessary and deterministic physical structure. The structure was a field with bits of data appearing as zero then one dimensional points, lines and membranes swiftly grown into quarks with a propensity toward fusion. Wouldn’t every perfect zero-dimensional singularity generate the same Universe without special design modification?

The vast data of seven or eight Universes disappeared with the physical content faster than light or the speed of gravity for an instant, before exploding into the new Universe closing the singularity behind with a final soundless nothingness. Though matter and energy from the lost eight Universes was conserved with transference and inflation into the singular new Universe, the data was gone; hidden safely away from future residents of new Universe1 in a dark information field that was in, yet not o,f the Universe. The information content of the seven or eight Universes could be infused however, at the discretion of God regarding right time and place, through strings and new quark relationships, into the minds of mankind that for some reason, along with space receiving dark energy and volume, served as live agents of change.

Particles were parts of a whole, some super-positioned and others not. A wave might be made of a multitude of particles.

Waves were concatenated groups behaviors of particles.

Charges were directions of motion that while theoretically reversible could not do so without two-times opposite energy added; hence not really very reversible.

Why mankind was created (by God) and is responsible for the human condition

God created everything so why not intelligent beings? He apparently found that they cannot obey His will (in the garden). Instead mankind (Adam and Eve) were willful and disobedient. What to do with willful people that had ate of the tree of knowledge and would eventually eat of the tree of immortality? God shortened their days (life span) and put them into a thermodynamic world where they had to work to input energy and had to reproduce sexually like the animals. That was all a consequence of the original sin that required correction. So all mankind has the problems of mortality and is condemned for being so willful and disobedient. If people are called and saved by the Lord Jesus Christ then they can have their sin nature cleansed or shielded from the perfect God’s view.

In a divine economy how could sin be tolerated for eternity? Hence hell and etc. From I Corinthians 6 “9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” and Thessalonians 5:6-9 “6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, “

Socrates, Plato and Aristotle; waiting to be canceled

Some people would like to cancel Socrates, Plato and Aristotle became they didn’t seem to support democracy. The Athenian democracy had a lot of slaves. Plato or Socrates supported the oligarchy rather than the demos, and the Romans developed the republic reasonably well while Greece became overrun, It hadn’t occurred to me though that anyone was thinking about cancelling Socrates so we are left with the three stooges in regard to political philosophy In an age when empires were the norm; even the Republic was very much to the left. It’s the sort of thing that the radicals that wrote the Magna Charta might have thought about.

I asked someone how many universes can dance on the head of a zero-dimensional singularity. He might have replied; ‘God knows’. Maybe it’s an intersectional concept, whereat one awakes in the will of the One.

Maybe everyone is an economic prisoner of the federal reserve bank chained to the social ladder economy as mute approved beings-of-interest watching the shadows of billionaires cross high above, trying to interpret the weird shapes.

Platonic forms and Multiverse space

 Plato’s realm of forms is about pure, essential ideas that are like blueprints for everything actualized in any universe. Ideas can fit in a thought of God. Plotinus named God ‘ the One”, and elaborated the realm of forms in his book named The Enneads

Ideas of spirit exist eternally for The One. Yet like an entire universe that is designed and static in a zero-dimension singularity, no space-time is required to contain it. Space-time is part of the kernel of the Universe that unfolds dimensionally- though one wonders about the time in which time is encapsulated at a singularity.

Every quantum form is pre-determined from alpha to omega in any possible universe among the multiverse of possibilities God deems possible. An infinite number of thoughts that comprise forms are known unto the omniscient One and have always existed even as the sentient beings that occur within them wonder about space-time and the quanta and qualia of a Multiverse and of God likening it unto a simulation.

More philosophical comments

Much of the political conflicts of the USA occur because people don’t care about evidence or faith. They have a will to believe and do so as a part of being a member of a group of like minded people. The race riots aren’t about faith and peaceful change does not invariable follow YouTube video evidence of a police crime, neither does exculpatory evidence send protesters and rioters home. In some cases there is a lot of evidence to support faith and in others people have faith that their evidence is valid, comprehensive and uncontroverted by unknown facts. People aren’t generally working matters of belief and politics as logicians replete with lifetimes of learning and wisdom. Consider abortion, homosexual marriage, global warming, ecosphere decay, tax rates and attacks on faith. in God- People tend to reinforce what they want to believe and force social morality to conform to desire and political preferences

The evidence of the good book is very good. Even jurors need faith that their verdict is true if they are honest. Einstein said that he just wanted to know the thoughts of God- the rest are details.
Philosophical certainty is difficult to attain
Socrates said that he knew that he knew nothing
Epistemology and pragmatism lead one toward dead reckoning judgements of necessity. Certainty or even true knowledge as of The Timaeus or Tractatus Logico Philosophicus and The Blue and Brown books leave one with words about words and short of knowledge of things for themselves or Kant’s noumenon. Faith, reason and inference lead some to belief in God. The problem of the criterion as Chisolm mentioned, afflicts all judgments of sentients embedded atop quantum entangled energy as mass in the Higgs field
Interestingly the sub-luminal status of. otherwise classless two dimensional energy packets when not getting that important 3rd dimension in the Higgs field may be the reason why time is experienced at all

Jesus said to let the dead bury the dead

It was an oblique reference to the need to be born again. Complex topic.

If one finds a well ordered and logically put together system, universe, multiverse or machine; that does not imply that it wasn’t designed. Subtle and infinitesimal quantum uncertainties may enliven art and being like pictures at an exhibition.

There are numerous truth theories. I like correspondence theory and disquotation theory. Truth is about relationships of words. The sole being in itself that is true is God it might be said. For God is truth and anything else contingent and relative

A few philosophical comments…

If one finds a well ordered and logically put together system, universe, multiverse or machine- that does not imply that it wasn’t designed. Subtle and infinitesimal quantum uncertainties may enliven art and being like pictures at an exhibition.

Ok so God is omnipotent. He has made every possible universe in every possible form

and stage in his thought. Everything is possible for him that he wills possible.

In one universe a rock is movable and in another it isn’t. Every infrastructural form of everything can be super-positioned like quanta in all possible lines God determines possible.

Modal logic allows one to populate a universe with whatever forms and relations one prefers, including temporal positions. One may make their own system of logic (ref Elements of Logic by W.V.O. Quine) concerning where and what is possible in possible locations. It is a mistake to assume that a particular logic structure exists in all places universally, as it is wrong to assume there is one universal time across a multiverse except in relation to eternal God.

If a universe can be defined as space-time with the same physicals laws or patterns of order, thought and logic in that area likely conform preponderantly to the forms that function in that space-time. An eternal being whom constructs those systems from eternity might be regarded as the unmoved mover by sentient contingent beings moving about.

Quine refuted the dogma of empiricism that just empirical statements about the world had valid data, and that wasn’t subjective. He showed that all statements have a subjective element including scientific

Quine was one of the best logicians and philosophers of logic of his time

In Word and Object he examines subjective epistemology. In Ontological Relativity he examines modal logic word lexicons from a nominalist perspective.

Someone cleverly noted that the thesis-antithesis dialectic is a good way to trick people into doing stuff as reactionaries. Besides that, the dialectic has numerous applications via analogy as stimulus-response loops, natural algorithmic cycles of increase, challenge response and baloney.

Hegel thought the or a world spirit was trying to realize itself in history. Logically though humans had realized themselves in history for at least 100000 years and the or a spirit of the universe isn’t retarded like a drunk trying to wake up after a binge

The spirit probably pre-existed the universe

Human wickedness and many other issues follow after the fall. I believe Adam and Eve when found unable to follow the will of God flawlessly were sent onto a containment facility known as the Universe today with its second law of thermodynamics, births toil etc in quest of energy and pleasure.

Human nature is depraved and the elect are saved through grace. Because God is eternal and Universes temporal the individual soul has a chance for salvation and salvage from the human condition

If uncorrected wicked humans as eternal spirits could run amuck plenty- hence the need for a temporal universe and a chance to sort things out.

I am not certain about nihilism being a first-person activity or just a point of view. The idea that reality is an illusion and belief in God is a heresy are part of Buddhism and consistent with nihilism in some ways, yet not in others. political nihilism could be a practical effort simply to destroy a government and leave nothing to replace it, or no one, and that would differ from anarchy. I am not sure that meaninglessness is necessary for nihilism. Consider people that hate western civilization and believe that it should be destroyed- they are partial nihilists if they want to annihilate the traditional American way and replace it with something else, foreign and non-specific, and plain nihilists if they want to leave scorched Earth and let the environment recovery (even if short sighted because without engineers to safely shut down all the nuclear plants and chemical dumps the environment would be a mess for quite a number of years left to themselves when they broke down.

Anti-particles just have an opposite spin. That is anti-matter spin is a mirror reverse image of matters spin. So anti MC could be like anti matter and annihilate MC or matter when it is incompatibly infused with it

Maybe it’s like forcing a left threaded device into a right threaded device thereby breaking both objects.

That reminds me about the one concerning the Universe meeting it’s long lost anti-universe rival…

Max Tegmark’s book ‘The Mathematical Universe’ describes a Multiverse up to a level 4 Multiverse, and further posits that pure math may be the basis of everything, literally. Tegmark makes a mathematical Universe Hypothesis (MUH). Great book to read. https://www.amazon.com/Our-Mathematical…/dp/0307599809

Sartre writes about the reef of solipsism in Being and Nothingness. It is part of the human condition as an individual observer embedded in the Higgs field temporally.

Bishop Berkeley wrote about idealism in The Three Dialogues of Hylas and Philonous. The human experience could be just an idea of God or a simulation. Berkeley probably was inspired by and developed Descartes’ Meditations.

. have you never read that? it started the thought examined logically in the first person school rolling.

https://oll.libertyfund.org/…/descartes-the-method…

Jesus wasn’t nihilist in bringing the end of the old covenant. He said he came to fulfill the law, not destroy it. When the prophet Jeremiah said that one day the laws of God would be written on the hearts and minds, that occurred with the work of Jesus Christ. Marx on the other hand was raised with Jewish ideas of millennialism and seems to have fused Feurbach’s atheism, Hegelianism and Darwinism with Zionism and socialism. As has been said a million times, Marx was a great sociologist and a rather bad political philosopher. His economic analysis of England was pretty good and the corrections he envisioned poor and sparse. He had strengths and weaknesses in equal measure. Not all political or religious change is nihilistic. Maybe Kropotkin’s Russian anarchism was neo-nihilistic. Trying to understand Christianity without faith in Jesus as the Son of the Trinity will result in misunderstanding much. A spiritual transformation is to occur and one must love God, and thy neighbor as thyself. That does not imply lazy, corrupt or moral relativism. Socialism as an economic system of the state differs much from free enterprise and self-directed work. The volunteerism and unselfishness of Christians would tend to cap capitalist acquisition and invest excess profit in social development. A Christian society should be economically more egalitarian yet does not require state socialism. Socialism can be an oppressive, atheist dictatorship. Hitler rose to power as leader of the German socialist workers part with help from a large majority of former socialists in the storm troopers. Any sort of tribe or group can use socialist economics. The challenge is to defend individual rather than collective ‘rights’ the devil would defeat everyone if it could, in the details.

The ultimate good (poem)

Wonders of the wood cut

slashed like Wall Street sales
gone over the edge
with multiverses of logic
structured with every possible example

  Of those that do and those that don’t
attack others with a variety of druthers
crumbling mountains
casting them into the sea
with talus slopes

  Eternity shapes time
movements with space
lights with deoptimalized plots
running over narrow rails
the weight, it’s trained

  So nothing remains of spring
flowers casting shadows on wind
lawns cut and memories of rhymes before
with the perfection of science
romanticism and emotion died down

Being and nothingness present
choices of mass and energy configurations
with spirit flowing contingency about
like self-aware nomenclature
waiting on the ultimate good.

Let cruise ships with vaccinated passengers work this year

Instead of banning cruise ships to Alaska in 2021 the CDC should put away the blunt instrument and let vaccinated passengers go ahead and visit Alaska. Crude, mass economic punishment is as useless as recommending bleach used internally to kill Covid 19.

 The CDC should put away it’s weapon of mass economic destruction and recommend that cruise ships with vaccinated passengers go ahead this year. Vaccinated passengers are not a Covid 19 danger to American cities at all unless the CDC is fibbing about the effectiveness of the vaccines and those inoculated will perish like overripe lotus blossoms with instant ghonobowla.

The cruise ship business is an important element of many coastal cities that shouldn’t be locked down until the CDC sobers up to realize some vaccines work rather well.

Good Russian-American relations is necessary for balanced global policy

The Democrat party sycophant media makes objective opinion difficult to get out to the public. They saturate the nation with corporate sales promotion news items such as serve the concentration of wealth best. They rely on the banking monopoly of the Federal Reserve (a private bank) to send trillions and trillions to the richest Americans and banking confreres and trickle down a pittance to the poor that don’t even see blood pressure medicine from Obamacare or Medicare. That isn’t a good supporting infrastructure fort democracy at all and sideways policies like avoidance of defending the borders adequately or getting on like gangbusters with Russian and President Putin are supplanted with better daily hate memos and soap operas of O.J. trials or the Chauvin trial with Rep Waters encouraging riots if the verdict doesn’t go her way.

The nation has a problem that began with Bill Clinton in failing to understand post-Cold War Russia adequately to have common sense about the Ukraine problem. At least half of the Ukraine was always Russian necessarily since Russia began there a thousand years ago. Russians would never be content to give it up, and President Bill should have known that and not levered it away from the nascent new Russian state via the C.I.S. or community of embarrassing name sissies that were weak without a live nuclear threat to the west and armies ready to roll in national defense. It was really no way to treat a sort of former ally that helped defeat not only Hitler and the Nazis, but the Mongols to- at least dulling their advance, as they did with the Muslim surge following the rise of the Turkish empire- as well as Napoleon. If not for Russia Europe and the U.S.A. might be speaking Turk-French-Mongol-German, and that would be very bad for the prospects of Doge coin.

Because the ethics of the U.S.A. have merged with those of predatory capitalism from Wall Street seeking after immediate satisfaction and short-term profits (not good neighborliness at all) the concept of levering away some land that has always been an integral part of Russia-even when Europe was still in the dark ages and the U.S.A. wasn’t even conceived, is unavoidable. Yet statecraft requires intelligence and ethics different from that of capitalists and President Biden should know that.

He has decided not to send the navy to crash into the Black Sea to interdict Russian naval support for an effort by President Putin to restore some Russian presence right to the Dnepr River where a border might reasonably be maintained amicably more or less satisfying most except western land grab speculators. President Biden should recognize the strategic interest the U.S.A. has in being partners rather than adversaries with Russia economically, politically and socially- as well as in joint space missions. The opportunity cost of not being best political buds with Russia is a great strategic blunder that unites most of the world against the U.S.A., who cannot really rely on Europeans for much in the long run for numerous reasons. They are rather piratical first and pursue their self-interest with as much propaganda effort as N.P.R.

President Putin may seem to have much political power in his own nation- yet the Russian constitution is written to provide for a Super-Presidency. The Roman Republic appointed a dictator in times of war and then returned to normality when the crisis was over. Russia has been attacked from all sides for a thousand years and invaded numerous times. During the post-Cold war reorganization what else should have been expected if the United States chose to resume an adversarial relationship because they believed they could bully a weak Russia?

It is amazing to me that national leadership except for President Reagan could be so blind about long-run strategic American interests. They seem like a lot of losers that prefer war to prosperity unless they exclusively possess all wealth. Without good Russian-American relations the world politically is unbalanced and divided. It may be readily exploited by special interests that can thwart globally important ecological and economic requisites for reform. Even racism can be stirred up and exploited as a diversion politically, and that simply lets the concept of reform rot.

Infrastructure Bill version 2.0 would be a more efficient way to go (revision of prior post)

President Biden, likes his two Democratic predecessors, is wasting a lot of time chasing after ideal partisan pork instead of pushing solid reform. Pork is a nice thing yet if accomplished with the decline of national finance and infrastructure it has deep hidden costs. Plainly the President needs an infrastructure plan revision 2.0. He has a chance to win one for the environment and should be serious about getting that accomplished directly. Sin means to miss the mark; missing the mark on a good environmental infrastructure bill would be a sin.

What the nation needs is a renewal of traditional infrastructure combined with a solid measure of new infrastructure. That means hyper-loop rather than conventional rails, wireless internet for everywhere at high-speed including Alaskan locals like the Copper River valley, North Slope, Anaktuvuk Pass, Nome and Wrangell. It means going bonkers over solar energy nationwide with special attention to those sunny portions of the 48 states. It means building a vast canal for saltwater with locks along the Mexican border that would be used for migration control and border security as well as serving to evaporate water that would be captured with transparent, sloped lids and trickle down to adjacent fresh water canals that are sealed and travel underground. The salt water would be pumped up with solar power from the pacific and spilled from Deming New Mexico east and west.

With so much global warming going on-especially in Nevada and Alaska, an abundance of new fresh water for farming and drinking would be useful across the S.W. as well as northern Mexico and create basket loads of work. That would be new infrastructure with a bang equivalent to the T.V.A. projects of long ago.

The new infrastructure bill could of course use conventional highways, and bridge reconstruction to transform existing blacktop surfaces that gather heat and release it at night with some sort of white-top surface that doesn’t absorb heat and stays cool after dark. A new streamlined and pure infrastructure bill should get solid bi-partisan support as people plainly would see that it’s not pork and would actually create jobs while attacking the scourge of global warming directly. Of course, building a vast network of public recharging stations for electric vehicle charging might help; and homeowners that produce electricity should be able to tie in to and sell their electricity to the alternate vehicle charging national power grid.

On the origin of philosophical idealism

 Philosophical idealism briefly-

     Philosophical idealism has its origins in epistemology- the theory of knowledge, rather than in political philosophy about an ideal state as some believe. Platonic realism in the Republic does have a theory of an ideal state yet the concept of the realm of forms, elaborated more fully and perhaps accurately by the Neo-Platonist named Plotinus in the 3rd century C.E. His work named The Enneads is brilliant yet differs substantially from theories about ideas, perception and reality as one discovers in the works of philosophers beginning with René Descartes who wrote in the 17th century. Plotinus was a philosophical-religious mystic considered heretical by the early church for believing he could experience God directly in heyschasm. Notably Augustine read Plotinus before converting to Christianity. Plotinus’ description of the One and the Intelligence emanating a realm of forms is a remarkable inference.

The realm of forms is an intuited metaphysical account of classes of objects, differentiations of objects and forms, classes and genres, and how they exist. One might say that there are perfect ideas of the form of every possible object or structure that exists in some way in the mind of God and everything that exists in the material universe is a copy or actualization of the perfect form. With temporal objects being subject to destruction over time it is reasonable to infer that a perfect form is eternal (if one accepts the existence of forms and ideas of forms somewhere not quite in this Universe.

 Before moving on to the school idealism that began with Descartes. I should point out that the Universe as discovered by physicists actually does have forms at the quantum level that energy must necessarily take to exist creating a certain resonance with Plato’s theory spanning two and a half thousand years.

 Idealism is actually, originally ideaism. Reading Descartes Meditations on First Philosophy published in 1641 one can clearly see that it is about ideas that are experienced by the mind, and the way they relate to knowledge. The intense introspection or self-examination of thought considers the problem of the certainty or lack of in it trusting one’s own thought. Maybe from that work the Irish philosopher Bishop Berkeley was inspired to develop the field of idealism further.

  Berkeley read John Locke’s works concerning perception and as far as I know created a synthetic advance on Locke and Descartes in finding ideas and perceptions somewhat phenomenal and things-in-themselves. Thought and perception become plainly subjective, including reality to a certain extent. One’s own mind has some challenges in verifying what exists externally and what does not, since all perceptions encounter or present within one’s mind. Today from common knowledge of physics one knows that particle-waves are interpreted through cognitive channels for humans that perceive ‘percepts’.

 Berkeley wrote that;

 “I do not argue against the existence of any one thing that we can apprehend, either by sense or reflection. That the things I see with mine eyes and touch with my hands do exist, really exist, I make not the least question. The only thing whose existence we deny, is that which philosophers call matter or corporeal substance. And in doing of this, there is no damage done to the rest of mankind, who, I dare say, will never miss it.”, Principles #35

 The Universe does exist within a Higgs field apparently, and matter is a secondary quality of energy slowed down to sub-light speed and flat two-dimensional form to three dimensions-hence allowing matter to exist, so I would not become too technical about claiming matter and corporeal substances are this or that myself, instead like many others I might describe matter as best I can in relation to the way the sub-atomic particles and forces of the Universe seem to my subjective experience. Certainly, one may venture an opinion that the entirety of fundamental quanta is funded by the will of Spirit (of God) as Berkeley apparently believed.

 Immanuel Kant follows Descartes, Locke and Berkeley so it is easy to see the development and continued work in the field of idealism of the German 18th century philosopher who write the Critique of Pure Reason and other works including the summary version named A Prolegomena to any Future Metaphysics.

 Kant investigated perception, cognition, reason and judgments and necessarily, ideas. His theory of judgment was a renewal of modern philosophy and very useful; https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/kant-judgment/

 The page above explains two basic fields of theories of judgment- psychologistic and Platonic. One may like Kant’s classifications of the a posteriori, the a priori and the synthetic a priori for a practical way of sorting out what one is thinking and consider how and what kind of knowledge it is. Analytic and synthetic judgments are useful differentiations.

 The one may leap forward past G.W.F. Hegel and other German 19th century idealism for combining metaphysics, history, teleology and other concerns that can be somewhat like synthetic evolutionary or teleological tomes, and get on to the 20th century philosophers like W.V.O. Quine (Word and Object) and P.F. Strawson (Individuals) who made a more technical examination of the nature of epistemology in relations to the mind’s ideas and percepts. Those are brilliantly informative works and brings the reader up nearly to the present with analytic philosophy an idealism.

 Jean Paul Sartre should be mentioned in the progression. Sartre actually described himself as writing in the tradition of French rationalism, yet one may easily say that he was also qualified as an idealist philosopher who considered subjective thought, experience and knowledge in a nearly Berkeleyian paradigm. Plainly he wrote in the tradition of Descartes. Being and Nothingness is a full exposition of the subjectivity of subjective perception and experience.

The reality of heaven and hell

Heaven and hell are not wrapped within the Higgs field paradigm, as is ordinary matter. The Higgs field slows down some massless particles to sub-light speed, and they pick up a third dimension along the line of travel instead of being flat, as are two-dimensional particles. Searching for a physical location of heaven and hell is something of an obsolete paradigm

Some believe that heaven and hell are physical places, yet they may be more spiritual, as they will be where spiritual beings exist. Others misunderstand cosmology generally, especially in relating it to Biblical hermeneutics and eschatology that they may also misunderstand.

The word Utopia itself means ‘nowhere’. With relativity theory people understand that locations are described just in relation to other locations- there is no ‘absolute’ or unchanging reference place as if Platonic realism and the realm of forms were situated in an absolute geophysical coordinate grid and the Universe or Multiverse also were rooted in it- as if some solid ground was supporting for the Universe to rest upon.

People don’t actually know if the Universe is a simulation, a concept in the mind of God, a construction or compound assembly with rules of construction on logical principles built up from one-dimensional, or even zero dimensional monads marvelously tangled in larger energy packets in a Higgs field. Instead it is fashionable to take the most contemporary scientific knowledge of cosmology as almost certain, exhaustive of definitions and inerrantly correct.

I believe that even if the Universe is a pre-determined multiverse of all possible worlds with each thought in each mind switching that individual mind to an appropriately configured Universe that people will eventually reach eternal hell on-their-own for lacking the saving grace of God through His son Jesus Christ to get him to the right place in the non-temporal eternity that is heaven.

If Pres Biden had a Demo majority at SCOTUS he wouldn’t try to add members to it

  President Biden has proven once again that he has no respect for democracy with the consent of the governed. Instead, like other Democrats in recent years he simply tries to corrupt the existing structure if it doesn’t work immediately to his advantage. While Republicans of Georgia messed with voting access in a way that seemed as if they were trying to prevent the poor of casting ballots in order to have a chance to win, President Biden accomplished the same conflict of appearance lawyers are supposed to try to avoid.

Like President Franklin Roosevelt who tried to pack the court with Democrats and expand it in order to accomplish his revisionist agenda, President Biden would like to expand the number of judges as he believes Democrats may not return to a majority right away.

The Judicial branch should be left alone to crank along as it does reasonably well as an independent branch of government. If one wants to keep the U.S.A. together as a democracy for very far into the future the judiciary should not decide that every state should have five times more representatives, nor that states should each have a dozen senators if they are from an underprivileged part of the nation, nor that there should be two Presidents, three French hens and a partridge in a pear tree.

Lawyer Presidents from the Democrat side tend to be wise guys in office that feel they are free to game the system, and that is very wrong. F.D.R.’s try was slapped down by Congress and so should President Biden’s. Americans may not know any better these days, especially since there are zero civil war veterans still living.

Communist gun control policy doomed democracy in Hong Kong

The Chinese Communist party has apparently effectively ended democracy in Hong Kong by casting out about all political dissidents under the rubric of a national security law. Actual democracy might present a threat to communism so they put it down. In the U.S.A. corporatism tends to act in a similar manner curbing free expression. They just haven’t gone so far as China has because people still own guns in the U.S.A., unlike Hong Kong.

www.cfr.org/backgrounder/hong-kong-freedoms-democracy-protests-china-crackdown

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_development_in_Hong_Kong

The Democratic party sometimes seems to forget that the American revolution occurred with a lot of shedding of blood, and that organizational goons really do need to keep a certain distance from homes with armed residents, and that is an inconvenience for politicians, CEOs and sundry megalomaniacs seeking total control of a society.

President Biden recently said that no amendment is absolute, in regard especially to the second amendment. The philosopher Soren Kierkegaard hated the use of the word ‘absolute’ that was used prolifically in his day, by certain Hegelians if I remember correctly. The word absolute has little additional meaning in a phrase quite often- it is something of a distraction. A constitutional amendment is ether meaningful and lawful or not. Some lawyers feel they can just disregard the constitution and amendments as inconveniences with work-arounds when they like.

It is surprising in a way to learn that many people aren’t really for democracy nor are aware of what it takes to sustain an actual democracy. The Catholic Church may have some imperialist ambitions left over from former times long ago, and some protestant clergy actually are for a theocracy-even some conservatives, and I don’t mean the one that returns with the physical appearance of Jesus Christ.

Democracy can be defeated by mass social decadence internally, by concentrated wealth so great that corporatism replaces it with citizens being silent, materialist worker-bees not much different from a communist government-fine for average, uncreative minions. It can be ended by a spoilt citizenry that inherited it and forgot that it does requires defense and an armed citizenry, sobriety and god sense.

A democracy should have classical sensibilities, modest goals and plain laws such as everyone can understand. Equal protection of the citizens, security of the nation itself with strong border control and sustainable ecological economic governance. The Romans had a few laws that everyone understand and that worked alright until the people developed bad policies, too much wealth and foreign estates and the colonies grew up in sophistication. The administration should not monkey with the judicial branch and think about trying to pack an expanded court with Democrats and corporatists. That would be another way to end democracy from the inside.

Capital increases faster than wages concentrating wealth

During the Covid crisis occasionally I had the opportunity to read toward the finish of Piketty’s eminently practical book Capitalism in the 21st Century that anyone with an interest in public affairs should consider required reading. The primary formula and main lesson of the work is r > g. It means that the average rate of return on capital is greater than the average increase of national income. Wealth therefore tends to concentrate and the higher one goes into income brackets the greater is the increase.

President Trump’s recent work with Microsoft toward buying the decadent Chinese music service Tic Toc is an example of wealth concentrating very fast indeed. The very wealthy can afford to take investment risks with a higher rate of return than those available to ordinary people.

Capitalists have gone global. They are quite internationally diversified. They hide 10 to 30% of their wealth in offshore tax havens. The actual wealth of the rich is reported through a glass darkly; the records are rather mystifying apparently. Much of the world has had no estate or inheritance tax records for example, and global accounting leaves many holes. As godless atheist media attack mystic aspects of faith and quantum mechanics it is their incompetent political protection of the mysticism of wealth that is the greatest mystic twit of fake news mystdirection. Hard social reality generally concerns money. If broadcast media want to pronounce some strange, exotic foreign word like Isaias (a cognoscenti spelling of Isaiah, the Biblical prophet) given to a hurricane, they use a spanish phonetic border pidgin of eee-sai-eee-as. The Bible is strange country to NPR apparently.

Billionaires have perhaps 5% of global wealth, yet it is the other 1 thousandth percent of global citizens with just a few or a few hundred million dollars that have as much as 50% of the wealth. Tic Toc is of more value than the income of all of the people of South Sudan- at least a free nation so far untroubled by NPR and other networking nefarious agents of evil conditioning masses to accept concentrating wealth and power.

There are several threats to Democracy concerning capital. Foreign entities can buy assets in foreign nations so the people pay rents to foreign powers. Sovereign wealth funds of China, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere could grow to dominate world economics. Wealth could concentrate so far that 1/1000th of global population would have 95% of the wealth of the world with legions of media sycophants in their pockets to explain to the people why the people are lucky they are living in the best possible world- whatever that is.

Without a regulating tax on capital globally redistributing revenue to the world, perhaps on a national, demographic basis (or not), democracy will die if it hasn’t already done so. It is possible that the United States is in a zombie phase in regard to democracy- dead yet with a vague resemblance to the original though living on debt and exploit of environment and enterprise elsewhere. The learning curve for members of congress is so steep concerning real economics the newly elected are fundamentally idiots without hope. Piketty’s book would help them somewhat-maybe they can hire someone to read it to them.

Politicians that are clueless run the nation decade after decade and overturn the political social economic egalitarian measures won by the soldiers of the First and Second World Wars. They concentrate wealth and cut taxes on the rich, on estates and income of the well-to-do. Those are recipe’s for national disaster, and environmental politics have taken a beating too as the most rich are unconcerned with mass extinction and seek easy, dirty profit; that is the course indexed Wall Street mutual funds usually take.

Democracy and real, generally accessible free enterprise, require large doses of economic egalitarianism to function. Restoring the decaying global ecosphere also requires national and global policies wherein everyone is included and has a stake in economic transitions to more ecospheric efficiency. People that are starving or living death of a salesman lifestyles find it challenging to be concerned about abstract to them environmental issues. Ordinary people need to be shareholders in their political economy and the rich should be close enough to the people in income to not be detached entirely from social and ecospheric reality.

National political parties of the United States don’t usually have rational goals and clear objectives. Voters are contented with vague and ineffective platforms. Business planning is quite a bit different as is flowcharting. For income inequity to be transformed to a more egalitarian socially functioning model based in ecological sustainable free enterprise real goals and structured methods need be made by political parties.

It is laughably unreasonable to expect politicians to accomplish anything beyond enriching the richest and concentrating wealth in the absence of meaningful party plans. If one does not even to create good effective goals finding the means to accomplish those goals is highly improbable.  Goal objectification could be done with flowcharting so the general public could easily comprehend the gist of what is trying to be accomplished, and of the time frame. Without that one simply elects garbage in and garbage out in a manner of speaking.

One of the greatest problems for the poor is instability. When the poor lose jobs they can go broke and lose most or all investments and material goods. They need to try a disadvantaged restart while trying to save in order to build a little capital. Rent is costlier than owning property usually, and without owning a secure place with job security the poor cannot buy durable goods. Income stoppages that are devastating to the poor can be trivial to the rich. The rich may be little harmed by periods of unemployment.

A nation need build income security for the poor and eliminate poverty throw guaranteed minimum income. It needs to have a walk-in free public health service for all of the poor without paperwork except for verification of income and citizenship status including those too poor to afford Medicare Plan B coverage. The U.S.A. should have free public education through graduate school for all citizens because it is to the public advantage to have people soak up all of the learning they possibly can. When these simple structural goals are accomplished and there are secure borders with no illegal immigration destabilizing social structures, then the U.S.A. can export more help to neighboring and other foreign nations (except Canada obviously) to help them accomplish similar democratic paradigms of free enterprise and income security from the bottom up. Rational political goals are requisite for achieving rational and satisfying political work.

If President Trump had set construction of a border control canal that would have evaporated saltwater and collected that as condensation instead of a Wall he might have got popular support for the Mexican border canal project; people in the Southwest generally want more fresh water and it would be a politically hard thing to oppose.

Presidential challenger Biden’s border security approach is to stop building a securityu wall and put high tech ankle monitors on illegal aliens that will voluntarily turn themselves report in, in exchange for a freeway to citizenship. Former V.P Biden would also end Chinese trade sanctions and replace it with a multilevel approach of kickbacks and kow-tows. Each party lacks good ideas.

 Rational goals should have social synergy than benefit society. Racism is used to divide the nation along non-economic lines, when economic divergence is the actual core problem instead of race. The United States doesn’t have an egalitarian distribution of wealth among white people any more than with blacks. People including whites who are bound to chase after wealth in networks controlled by the most rich tend to be mean and even vicious not unlike dogs snarling over a bone with chunks of meat attached to it.

In the emerging atheist Democrat society of queer and debased social values evil and bad character without intellectual merit are good character traits. To be treacherous, deceiving, petty and venal in a mass social environment are good ways of interacting, while, alternatively contemplative intellectual objectivity is inefficient at chasing after the bone of contention. In a decaying modern society evolving into some sort of corporatist-socialist plutocracy Machiavelli’s value that applied to the prince now apply more broadly to the masses. Needless to say, such souls are likely to find Jesus Christ and salvation challenging to locate sin while they have their heads so far up darkness.
