cranky Different View: Penetrating the Mystery of the Cosmos 2005 Dec 06
     ... science . mathematics ...
"However with all the progress in the fields of astronomy, electronics and computing the cosmos still remains essentially an elusive mystery. Is this because it functions according to laws and principles that are in a quite separate dimension of reality to those with which we are familiar as inhabitants of of our planet, or is there something that is fundamentally wrong in the way it is viewed? Different View is a theory that addresses this issue directly, and questions the way the cosmos is viewed scientifically and offers an alternative that shows the universe to be a natural phenomenon of distance and time, the product of restricted expansion and constant circulation." Available in PDF format.

bizarre Diamond Theory Symmetry in Binary Spaces 2005 Oct 07
     ... mathematics ...
"Symmetry is often described as invariance under a group of transformations. An unspoken assumption about symmetry in Euclidean 3-space is that the transformations involved are continuous. Diamond theory rejects this assumption, and in so doing reveals that Euclidean symmetry may itself be invariant under rather interesting groups of noncontinuous (and asymmetric) transformations. (These might be called noncontinuous groups, as opposed to so-called discontinuous (or discrete) symmetry groups. See Weyl's Symmetry.)"

"There seems to be a problem. Many people still do not understand the meaning, the value, and the use of zero. In this day and age of high tech we still revert to this ancient myth that division by zero is some sort of error. Conceived and printed in the days when they thought the earth was flat, our early mathematicians created a mathematical error that has lasted for centuries and may last for eternity."

"The idea behind the Galactic Examination is to simulate a situation that can help us to use a self reference constructive criticism, in order to find out if we can be considered as legitimate members of the union of the intelligent civilizations of our Galaxy. The minimal criterion is proof that the examined species can survive technological developments that could destroy it. One of the ways that has to be taken is connected to the language concept in general, and particularly, the language of Mathematics. Through an historical and current research the language of Mathematics is considered as one of the most powerful tools that can help us to implement ideas in a variety of areas, and particularly in scientific research and development."

The Quantum Physics Model offers new insights into the mechanics and electromagnetics of the subatomic realm. A central concept of the Quantum Physics Model is the space surrounding physical matter is active and dynamic, contributing to the existence of subatomic particle angular momentum. This dynamic aspect of space is mathematically represented through Coulomb's Constant and the gravitational constant. The unit of quantum space is the rotating magnetic field."

"The span of a collection of vectors is defined to be the set of all possible linear combinations of the vectors with scalars selected from some set (a field--usually the real numbers). For example, if you select vectors i = <1, 0> and j = <0, 1>, the collection of linear combinations ai + bj (for a, b real numbers) is every vector in the two-dimensional coordinate plane. Creating something so large using something so small is surprising but at the same time expected because of previous experience with vectors, say in Calculus. Now let's think about something whose words are very simple, say the love of God, and meditate on what the span of God's love might be. We read in Paul's letters to the Ephesians that he prays that they might 'have the power. . . to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.' So the span of God's love is really really big! Is this surprising? YES! Just think about our rebellion and sin--so it is a surprise that God should love us! Is this expected? Again, yes! We have models in our families and friends that demonstrate how broad a father's love for his children can be."

     ... mathematics . occult ...
"Welcome to an evolving web site on the magickal workings of the late mathematician/logician, Cecil Frederick Russell (1897-1987). This web site is intended as a valid perspective on his life's Great Work and genuine contributions to magickal culture. With this in mind, the primary intention is to focus upon and explore the mathemagickal structure of Russell's system and its relations to traceable threads from various traditions. A majority of the material addressed here is primarily taken from C.F. Russell's books, which are somewhat scarce, but extremely dense with practical information. As Russell himself puts it, 'each page is a Yoga drill to effect Illumination!' In particular, the contents of Barbara Cubed- the Manual of Pure Logic (1944), Tropermic Calculus (1944) and, Book Chameleon (1950) are being studied. Excerpts from Russell's collected memoirs, entitled 'Znuz is Znees' vols.1-3 (1970-72) provide further background on his life & works. Russell was a member of the A.'.A.'. & O.T.O. (Fr. Genesthai) and was secretary to Aleister Crowley during the (in)famous 1920's Cefalu period. Some speculation suggests that Russell's experiences on 'the Rock' during this period at Thelema Abbey subsequently led to his establishment of the Gnostic Brotherhood of God (G.'.B.'.G.'.) and his personal magickal explorations into the fields of mathematics & logic. For a complete listing of what is currently in this section, see the Contents page."

It concerns the background of Wiles's recent work on mathematics related to Fermat's last theorem, which involves the earlier work of a mathematician named Taniyama. This lie states that at the time of a conjecture by Taniyama in 1955, there was no known relationship between the two areas of mathematics known as 'elliptic curves' and 'modular forms.'"

"-10 is not a negative number. It is mathematically MINUS as in the operation, but that it exists shows that it is positive. There is only positive, into infinity and then lack of a number. This fits the definition which is so clear with every other subject of study. Speed: No negative speed exists, only none and speed into infinity. Heat: No negative heat exists, only none and then heat into infinity. Size: There is no negative size, only non-existence and then size into infinity. So it is with the universe. Matter: it is. It exists and then onward into infinity, things exist to intricacy infinitely as well. I can either go infinitely into 2. e.g. 2.1111111111111111 into infinity. I can also go infinitely in size. 21111111111111111111111 etc. So there are three laws: Outward, Inward, and Non-existence. There is no such thing as negativeness."

     ... mathematics . philosophy ...
"The laws of nature are explained in terms of symmetry. The completed infinities, mathematician Georg Cantor's infinite sets, could be explained as cardinal identities, akin to 'qualia' from which finite subsets, and elements of subsets, can be derived. Completed infinities, called 'alephs' are distributive in nature, similar to the way that a set of 'red' objects has the distributive property of redness. Predicates like 'red' are numbers in the sense that they interact algebraically according to the laws of Boolean algebra. Take one object away from the set of red objects and the distributive number 'red' still describes the set. The distributive identity 'natural number' or 'real number' describes an entire collection of individual objects."

"My interest in geometry is often from a metaphysical perspective. In this section you will find papers on basic 2 dimensional geometry, and detailed analyses of some well-known polyhedra. I try to use only the most basic geometric tools, namely, the Pythagorean theorem and well-known Euclidian theorems. I try to avoid trig unless specifically looking at central and surface angles, because the ancients didn't use it, at least to my knowledge. ... I define metaphysics as that subject which investigates universal law and which can be applied beneficially to daily life. I believe that if metaphysical concepts are too abstruse, they are worthless. These essays are not an explication of standard metaphysics. You will not find here any 'critiques of pure reason' or any metaphysical buzzwords like 'ontological' or 'non-deterministic'. I will leave these to the standard metaphysicists!"

"These pages focus on the set of positive integers and the operators between them. An Alternate Number System that has no need for the digit zero is presented, and other topics related to positive integers are discussed. You will find minimal reference to the number zero and negative numbers. Hopefully both recreational and professional mathematicians will find something of interest - the intent of these pages is to motivate others to explore the fascinating world of positive integers. I am confident with most of the ideas on these pages. However a few ideas are still in their infancy, and require further development and refinement. I therefore welcome your input to aid in expanding some of the thoughts. These pages are not necessarily static, and hopefully, will evolve in a positive manner as time goes on. ... Welcome to ANS in which the digit zero disappears and therefore all digits behave the same. So digit reversals work for all numbers. And, yes, base 1 is valid in ANS."

crankier Areas Explains Galileo's "Miraculous" Geometry Problem 2002 Sep 19
     ... mathematics ...
"Galileo's problem shows that Euclid's definitions are self-contradictory. This should suffice to not teach them or their variants to future mathematicians, physicists, and engineers in high school and beyond, or to use them as the mathematical definitions in the latest dictionaries, as is now done. But, it might be argued, since they don't appear to affect calculations, surely they are harmless fictions, only causing confusion on rare occasions. Galileo was a great physicist, far ahead of his time, but he died in 1642. Who would mistake the illogical for the magical today? The fact is they have caused much confusion. Discomfort with how a geometrical point seems to be both something and nothing has caused some to attribute materiality to it. They have even wondered whether geometry properly belongs to mathematics or physics. But there is nothing more immaterial than a distance. Many theoretical physicists assert that matter is infinitely compressible. If a geometrical point cannot occupy zero volume, how can a physical point? Famous skeptic and debunker Martin Gardner apparently reads Marilyn vos Savant's column, judging by the problems he occasionally submits to her, yet accepts Wiles' 'proof.' Certainly no believer in magic, he has been fooled into believing that the universe is made of mathematics, which is like believing it is made of words!"

The Reciprocal System is a body of knowledge derivable from the logical extension of its two fundamental postulates: 1. The physical universe is composed entirely of one component, motion, existing in three dimensions, in discrete units, and with two reciprocal aspects, space and time. 2. The physical universe conforms to the relations of ordinary commutative mathematics, its primary magnitudes are absolute, and its geometry is Euclidean."

"Two-hundred, fifty have lapsed since Christian Goldbach proposed (in 1742) that every positive even Integer, not 2, can be expressed as the sum of two primes. This manuscript attempts to show that the proposition is correct as a consequence of Wilson's Theorem. Little effort will be required to understand the proof as it is not complicated. Many attempts have been made to solve the problem over the years, so that the author must acknowledge that it is only by a stroke of good fortune that this ?discovery,? as simply and straightforwardly as it presents itself, is the result only of astute observation. The method of proof is simple once the preliminary groundwork is presented."

So, I'd like to credit all those who have contributed in this area in the past and who are doing so today. Please forgive me if I do not reference everything directly. In developing these ideas, my philosophy has been to assume as little as possible, even about the most basic of things, and then try to develop logical and internally consistent ideas. Because I'm an amateur, many academics would consider me a 'crackpot' and dismiss the ideas out of hand. However, in reading these ideas, I hope that you consider them on their individual merits and not based on their amateur source. After the ideas, some links to other, not all related, sites are also listed."

So sciences about largest negative action pursuit, largest happiness pursuit, largest profit pursuit and largest knowledge pursuit are unified into one: Science of Pursuit. Pursuit systems with different mathematical expressions and methodologies have different expanding speed. From least action principle in physics, universe pursues negative action the best, so physics is equivalent with 'Science about the fastest expanding system'. Since expanding velocity is invariant with dimension and unit of the pursued quantity, any pursuit system can perfect itself by 'Imitating Universe.'"

     ... mathematics ...
"I could have started this work here, without disturbing noble Diophantus, and it will make nodifference to number nex. When a poet ventures in Mathematics he does as did Frege: writes in natural verses. To improve the language seduction, some murals will be added. With the glance of Gödel and the dream of Frege in my rucksack, I rushed in searching an external reference, since I was decided to solve such enigma. Had found the model, it has to be the reference to all and each one of the sign rules. Now silence! I declare in high and clear tone to all the aequeus: I unmasked the mystery, I found the solution; I bring it here in my strong hands."

     ... mathematics . Fermat's Last Theorem ...
"To me the [Fermat's last theorem] problem seems to be at the core of arithmetic -- showing two operations (+) and (^) that are apparently too far apart for comfort, although (^) is repeated (.), which itself is repeated (+). So (^) is only one step beyond (.), yet one step too much for closure! ... Notice that (^) is not associative, nor commutative, nor does it distribute over (+). It is a highly non-conformist operation, despite its straightforward definition as repeated multiplication."

fringe The Farce of Physics 2000 Feb 25
     ... science . physics . mathematics ...
"The word scientist entered the English language in 1840, and few individuals earned a living doing research, with most of the investigations carried out by gentlemen of wealth and leisure. At that time, a handful of American scientist were taking steps to transform their status and image and separate themselves as professionals from those they considered amateurs. The major tactic used to create this artificial separation has been the elaborate use of technical jargon and complex mathematics. This erection of higher and higher barriers to the comprehension of scientific affairs is a threat to an essential characteristic of science, its openness to outside examination and appraisal. Because of this, modern theoretical physics has become to a large degree, little more than an elaborate farce. ..."

"Stevin's ideas caused a revolution in ordinary arithmetic. He recommended converting all of the odd and varying fractions to be found, then and still in the measurement of weights, volume, length, angles and coinage, into tenths or hundredths or thousandths. Such new ways of measuring did not become universal in France until the metric system was adopted, but the concept has since spread over the world, especially for scientific uses, and has led to far greater efficiency and accuracy in the handling of numbers. ... What did Shakespeare know about Disme and his contribution to mathematics and technology? ..."

bizarre Acme Klein Bottles 2000 Jan 10
     ... mathematics ...
"Need a zero-volume bottle? Searching for a one-sided surface? Want the ultiamte in non-orientability? Get an Acme Klein bottle! At last, Acme has conquered topological and engineering frontiers to manufacture genuine glass Klein Bottles. These are the finest closed, non-orientable, boundary-free manifolds sold anywhere in our three spatial dimensions. These elegant bottles make great gifts, fantastic displays, and inferior mouse-traps. With its circle of singularities, an Acme Klein Bottle can be said to exist inside of itself -- especially handy during time-reversals."

"The complexity of the universe is inversely related to the probability of it being at a particular state. A more complex universe is one that has a lower probability of being in that state, and a less complex universe is one that has a high probability of existing."

     ... mathematics ...
"Many teachers only require recall of facts, or an ability to manipulate symbols without necessarily understanding or using the symbols. This places undue emphasis on the nomenclature rather than the things and concepts behind the nomenclature. Let's quit worshipping the words and start worshipping the concepts behind them. I am not trying to 'dumb down' math. I am trying to allow mathematic learning occur without archaic and cumbersome Greek and Latin terms getting in the way. I teach both the new term and the old term to most students. However, it is not inconceiveable to me that at some point in the future only the new term would have to be taught."

     ... grand unification . mathematics ...
"I have developed a theory that builds a unification of ideas into what I call a 'deeply unified field theory,' in that rather than trying to unify the four fundamental forces, it unifies the physical units of measurement for space, time and mass. Central to this development is how pure geometry may be used to represent reality. This unity is achieved, in some sense, through a conservation of the identity of an abstract and real line. That is, the idea of a line is conserved with respect to real and abstract space. I think of this conservation as a semantic alignment, or as a bridge, between the real and the abstract."

illucid Nature's Theory 1999 May 27
     ... grand unification . mathematics . physics ...
"... a realization suddenly made it through my thick skull that there is a common link between everything in nature. A universal constant, or a universally repetitive pattern, that is inherent, and common to all things in nature. This common link caught my attention because I seem to key into patterns, but more importantly, because patterns are the essence of all math and physics. I was very skeptical at first, because people have a tendency to make things appear before them, sort of willing themselves to see what they're looking for. ... The further that I inspected the notion though, the more clear it became to me that this particular pattern was indeed validly represented everywhere in nature. The pattern, therefore, produces a pretty interesting theory, since a universal pattern in nature dictates the existence of a universal physics. Specifically addressed is the unification of perceived, and measured, reality."
