FROM THE VERY SMALL TO THE BIG BANG.
( Introduction & Chapter 1 history of science complete)

INTRODUCTION. - TIME AND SPACE.

What does it mean when we say that time passes by faster or more slowly? What are we really saying?
We are talking about the "rate", T(r), at which time passes, which can also be thought of as a "frequency" similar to electromagnetic radiation. In this analogy, do not confuse long wave length, L, with higher frequency. Longer wave length means slower time rate or frequency which means the slower time passes. The greater the rate (or frequency) of time tics, the faster time passes, and visa versa. A more visual way to see it, imagine a timeline with the tics of a clock separating equal segments, L, of time. The slower time flows, the longer each time segment, L, will be, meaning the rate, T(r), will be less. The exact equation relating frequency to wave length is

L x T(r) = C, the constant speed of light

Now you ask, "How can we talk about the "fabric" of space when there is nothing there?". It was Einstein who first proclaimed that space and gravity interact, claiming that gravity warps space. Now I accept this idea, although it could be that space shapes gravity. No matter, it seems obvious from this that there is something in space we cannot see, and therefore we can speak of space as if it were a "fabric" or maybe even a fluid.

This document is a pure mathematical viewpoint and reasoning in an attempt to better understand what science has been telling us today about quantum theory and cosmology .
IT IS A KEY THEME OF THIS DOCUMENT THAT ONE CANNOT TRAVEL AN IRRATIONAL OR A QUASI-IRRATIONAL DISTANCE WITHIN THE SPACIAL REALITY OF WHICH WE ARE CURRENTLY AWARE. HOWEVER, THAT FACT DOES NOT MEAN THERE ARE NO IRRATIONAL POINTS IN A SEPARATE SPACE OF WHICH WE ARE NOT AWARE. NOR DOES IT MEAN THAT A STATE OF IRRATIONALITY CANNOT TEMPORARILY EXIST WITHIN THE SPACIAL REALITY OF WHICH WE ARE AWARE. THE PERSPECTIVE TAKEN HEREIN IS THAT THERE EXISTS A RATIONAL SUBSPACE AND AN IRRATIONAL SUBSPACE, THE TWO COMPRISING ALL OF SPACE.,

The first chapter presents:
1. the algebraic symbology I use,
2. some key mathematical & scientific information & equations handed down to us,
3. some pertinent scientific history.
Where the reader may skip over the first two sections of this chapter, using those sections only for quick reference, the reader should not skip anything after that lest he become lost in comprehending anything that has evolved in science since the days of Einstein.

The second chapter deals with the very small, ie, quantum theory, space and apparent nothingness.

The third chapter deals with the very large, ie, the BIG BANG . Both the very small and very large are described as contracting and expanding spheres, the commonality being found in the concept of a virtual singularity, ie, a "point".

In this document, I question some of the following contemporary and conventional wisdom

1. ZERO IS ALWAYS A RATIONAL NUMBER.
2. NOTHING IS SMALLER THAN PLANKS CONSTANT.
3 THERE IS NO AETHER.
4. THERE IS NO CENTER TO THE UNIVERSE.
5. THE UNIVERSE IS AN ISOLATED SYSTEM.
6..COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND NOISE IS STRETCHED OUT LIGHT FROM THE BIG BANG.

Only the first 5 do I seriously question.

CHAPTER 1.
SYMBOL LEGEND, ABOUT NUMBERS, & SCIENTIFIC HISTORY.
.
.
A. Before proceeding , here is a legend of the symbols I will use:

CONSTANTS:
C = the constant speed of light in a vacuum
G = Newton's gravitational constant
PI = C(c)/D(d) = 3.14......
H = Plank's constant = 6.62 x 10**(-34)
W = Wien's Constant = .00294 degree-meters
K = unimportant constant

VARIABLES:
V(n) = Newton's velocity
A(n) = Newton's acceleration
M(n) = Newton's inertial mass
F(n) = Newton's force variable
G(n) = Newton's force of gravity
T = time
D = linear longitudinal distance
T(t) = temperature absolute
T(r) = the rate of time = F(r)
F(r) = frequency or radiation frequency
S(r) spin rate
L(r) = wave length
A(r) = wave amplitude
S(r) = sinusoidal distance
D(r) = diameter
C(r) = circumference
E = work/energy
i = an integer quantum number

I may drop the subscript when the context in which the symbol appears is clear or if there is no other use of the capital letter..

In addition, the following equations are observed:
F(n) = M x A Newton's equation
E = F(n) x d Newton's definition of work/energy
E = i x H x F(r) Plank's Law
E = M x C** Einsteins Law
L(r) x F(r) = C Maxwell equation
T(t) x L max = W Wien's Temperature-Wave Length Law
where:
x = multiplication operator
/ = division operator
* = exponential operator
.
.

Numbers give us a way of measuring things..
And the ability to measure requires the ability to divide that which is being measured into smaller, but equal, parts.
Another word for measuring is "QUANTIFICATION" which gives us a little clue into the meaning of "QUANTUM THEORY". Numbers are also used to label.

There are different kinds of numbers, some of which can be divided into equal parts, and others not so. There are WHOLE NUMBERS aka INTEGERS, ODD & EVEN NUMBERS, PRIMARY NUMBERS, REAL NUMBERS, IMAGINARY NUMBERS, FRACTIONAL NUMBERS, etc...
But here I am focusing upon IRRATIONAL NUMBERS
.
1. An IRRATIONAL NUMBER is one in which there is no end to non-repeating numbers to the right of the decimal point.

2. PI is an irrational number.

3. With the exception of zero, an irrational number multiplied times any rational or irrational number yields an irrational number. The same is true of division. The same is true of addition and subtraction, except when two irrational numbers whose numbers to the right of the decimal point yield a zero sum.

4. There are at least four times more irrational numbers than rational numbers. This is because any mathematical operation ( + - x /) between a rational number and an irrational number always yields an irrational number.

5. There being no distinct classification for numbers that have a repeating non-zero number sequence to the right of the decimal point, I call these QUASI IRRATIONAL NUMBERS. Example: 1/3 = .3333333....

C. BEFORE EINSTEIN

.
1. THE CONSTANT SPEED OF LIGHT & ITS IMPACT UPON NEWTON'S KINETIC ENERGY.

For centuries before Einstein, scientists had narrowed down the speed of light, C. So you look at a star and wonder, "Is that light getting to you instantly, or does it require a little time to get to you?". Both Newton and Galileo made unsuccessful attempts to measure the speed of light. But it was two astronomers, Romer in 1675 and Bradley in 1727, who were finally able to determine that the speed of light was finite, not infinite.About the same time, Newton made a very important distinction between average velocity and instantaneous velocity.

It was Einstein who determined that no matter how fast you are moving toward or receding away from a light source, you will always measure the speed of light to be exactly the same. My example #1 illustrates how this is so. It depicts a spring anchored at the ends, with a throttle lever attached to the middle. At the left end is you, the observer. At the right end is the light source you are moving toward or away from. In this example you are moving toward the light source. The lever is the equivalent of a throttle to advance your speed or retard it. The top part of the example shows your motion status before speeding up. The bottom shows the motion status after you have speeded up. More specifically it shows you the length of your ruler on the left and your time clock tics on the right. The distance between each wave peak on the left is the unit of measure for distance on your ruler. The peak of each wave on the right is a tic of your clock. You can see that as you move the level to the left thereby increasing your speed relative to the light source, your ruler shrinks and your time clock slows down. Thus, the ratio of distance traveled to tics of the clock is always the same. This is what Einstein uncovered in his Special Theory of Relativity.

Einstein went on to apply this new finding to Newton's Work-Energy equations. Newton said that Work done equals the Energy put into it, W = E. Derived from his basic equation that says Force F(n) = Mass x Acceleration, F = MA, Newton said that Force applied over a distance is Work, W = F x D, and the Energy to apply that Force was E = MAD. Therefore, if W = E,
then FD = MAD. But A = V/T* = D/T**.
So MAD = M(D/T**)D = M(D**/T**) = MV**.
Therefore, E = MV**. which is KINETIC ENERGY.

But now here is the difference between Newton and Einstein.
Newton assumed that mass, M, was always constant and that velocity,V, was always variable. Einstein, recognizing that the speed of light was constant, simply plugged that constant C in for velocity V to give E = MC**. and said "no, mass is the variable and velocity is the constant. So much for that piece of history.
.
.
2. PLANK'S LAW AND A NEW FOUND ENERGY.

.
Max Plank was a brilliant dedicated scientist in the late 1800s. In his study of HEAT ENERGY (which is basically kinetic energy of atoms hitting each other like friction), he made a very important empirical finding establishing a relationship between energy and radiant frequency. It is called
PLANKS LAW expressed as E = H x F(r),
where E is energy, F(r) is frequency and H is Planks constant
So now we have two equations for energy..

When Newton was talking about "energy", he was talking about KINETIC ENERGY. This appears to be what Einstein was talking about when he first broached the subject of light.
Kinetic energy is the energy imparted when one piece of matter hits another one, so it is deeply connected to mass and the speed of mass.

But Max Plank, in his study of heat energy (which is basically kinetic energy of atoms hitting each other like friction), uncovered the RADIANT ENERGY of electromagnetic waves, especially light waves.
To restate his find in quantum theory terms,
E = i x H x F,
where E is energy & F is frequency & i = 1 quantum.
But where is the force to create radiant energy?
We all can well understand the energy imparted when one thing traveling linearly hits another. But if there is no mass involved, then where is the force of this invisible wave? The answer is that the force is not in the same linear direction of travel. The force is orthogonal to the direction of travel. More specifically it is the amplitude of the wave. The greater (or higher) the amplitude, the greater the force, and hence, the greater the energy. So where does Plank's Law say anything about amplitude? It does not. But what it does say is that the higher the frequency, then the higher the energy. If you have the same amplitude across several different frequencies hitting you, the one you will feel the most is the highest of those frequencies, because you are getting hit more times than the other lower frequencies.

So to recap, we now recognize two different types of energy, kinetic energy and radiant energy. O)f course there are others, but that is not our concern here.

.
3. THE DUAL NATURE OF LIGHT. WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY.

For centuries, scientist had at some times considered light to be a particle (now called a photon), while at other times considered it to be an electromagnetic wave. Newton and Huygens in the 17th century were among the first to really study light. Newton supported the particle idea and Huygens supported the wave idea.

Huygens said that light is a wave that generates "wavelets" at each point in space along the way which in turn generate more subsequent wavelets. Thus light is propagated like ball colliding with other balls on a pool table, only Huygen's analogy was the wave action of water. Indeed there appears to be a lot of truth in his viewpoint which appear in one of my attached pictures.Then early in the 19th century, Young demonstrated his Double Slit experiment that emphasized the wave idea even further. Later in that century, in pursuit of establishing the wave theory, two scientist, Michelson and Morley, posited that space was comprised of Aether particles through which light was propagated as a wave, In other words, space was like an ocean.They reasoned that the speed of the earth through it could be determined like a rowboat trying to cross a river. The experiment failed, resulting in the dismissal of there being any such thing as an Aether, not to mention the resulting question of light being a wave.

What has since evolved is a very complicated picture of the photon being both a particle and a wave. This being the case, let me try to draw a simple straight forward analogy of this duality.

Referring to my example #2, envision a wheel of your car. This is representative of a photon. Imagine a huge polarized bar magnet stuck perfectly to the wheel across its diameter from one edge, through the center, and to the other edge of the wheel. Now, before you begin to drive it, assume the car is up on blocks lifting the wheels off the ground. You start the engine, engage the wheels, step on the gas and observe the revolutions per minute, rpms. For this example, we assume that the rpms is the same as the rate at which the wheel spins and is the SPIN FREQUENCY, S(r). The spin frequency produces the periodic motion of the magnet's poles which generate an oscillating electromagnetic field of radiation having a frequency of F(r). So the spin rate, S(r), and the frequency, F(r), are one and the same. The resulting radiated wavelength, L, is the same as the circumference, C(r), of the wheel. And the wave's amplitude, A, is the radius, R, of the wheel. Meanwhile, the path of the magnet's north pole is a circle relative to both the ground and the center of the wheel. In short, what we have here is an electromagnetic wave of frequency F(r) and wavelength L that travels at the speed of light C.

Now you lower the car to the ground and begin to drive it at the same revolutions per minute as before Relative to the car, the magnet is still generating the same electromagnetic radiation and has the same frequency and wave length and amplitude as before. And the path of the magnet's north pole motion relative to the center of the wheel is still a circle. But now we ask 'WHAT IS THE PATH OF THE MAGNET'S NORTH POLE MOTION RELATIVE TO AN OBSERVER ON THE GROUND AS THE CAR IS MOVING LONGITUDINALLY? THE ANSWER IS "A SIGN WAVE" WHICH STILL HAS THE SAME AMPLITUDE. BUT EVERYTHING ELSE IS DIFFERENT WITH REGARDS TO FREQUENCY AND WAVELENGTH OF THE GENERATED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD. .

Going a little further, let's look at what the electromagnetic radiation looks like to our observer standing still in front of your car as you drive towards him. To such an observer, the fact of your velocity towards him compresses the peak-to-peak wavelength of the generated electromagnetic wave. This means a shorter wavelength, which in turn means higher frequency. Were the observer standing behind your car, the opposite would be true. The wavelength would get longer and the frequency would be less. This is called Doppler Frequency Shifting

To this point, our analogy may not be complete, the reason being that the wavelength of the generated electromagnetic wave was in sync with the linear longitudinal distance traveled by 1 complete revolution of the wheel. Suppose the spinning magnet is not attached to the wheel, but instead is inside the car and not spinning at the same rate as the car's wheels.

No matter, the same Doppler Frequency Shift will occur, maybe not the same as before, but it will still occur as long as your car is moving. It is the same type of Doppler Frequency Shift as when you hear a train whistle go from a high pitch to a low pitch as it passes by you. So now we see that there can be a distinct difference between the actual periodic spin speed, ie, frequency, and the observed frequency depending upon the relative motion between the electromagnetic wave source and the observer.

This analogy of a photon may not be exactly correct. Certainly it does not cover all of the intricacies of light, especially Huygens view that light appears to replicate and distribute itself at every point in space. Although Huygens did not support the particle view, his theory seems to be liken to a cue ball hitting a racked up set of balls on a pool table. No matter, I hope this presents at least some idea of how the wave-particle duality idea works.
.
.
4. RECAPPING THE ATTRIBUTES OF LIGHT.

So up to here we have talked about two pertinent aspects of light,
a. its constant longitudinal speed, C, as if it were a particle of matter,
and
b. the fact that it is an oscillating electromagnetic field or wave.
Most anybody can understand part a. But part b should be elaborated upon a little bit without going into all of the details of electromagnetic theory. Sufficia to say, that a magnet has a force field around it that can cause electrons to accelerate or decelerate from their state of motion when the magnet is moved relative to the electrons. Conversely, a linear flow of electrons can generate a magnetic field relative to to the direction of electron flow. The dispersion of the force of the generated magnetic field is circular rather like a pipe enclosing the linear flow of electrons. In other words, a magnetic force that creates "spin" is created. If the linear flow of the electrons is alternated back and forth as in alternating current, then the resulting circular magnetic forces alternate accordingly and create a magnetic wave. This is at the heart of electromagnetic wave generation.

Returning to some other attributes of light,
light radiates outward from its source in linear paths. Its strength per area diminishes as it fans out. A light bean can be reflected or absorbed by matter. It can be refracted as it passes through transparent matter It can be diffused as it passes by the edge of matter.. Each virgin beam of light (or light ray) is composed of transverse waves in all directions.This means looking straight on at the beam you are confronted with waves moving in all directions, not just up-&-down or side-to-side. Polarization is a way of filtering out all the transverse waves except those waves oscillating in just one direction. A laser is a way of amplifying light.

.
5. CAN ANYTHING EXIST WITHOUT MASS?

First let us be clear in our understanding of "mass". "Mass" is "inertia", ie, the resistance to any forces being applied to "mass". It is not weight. In addition, "mass" can be thought of as the storehouse of energy. In a similar manner, "mass" might also be a storehouse for gravity. In addition, there is a distinction made between an "at rest" mass and a mass "in motion". Depending upon the speed of a ball that hits you, the faster ball certainly seems to have more mass.

At first, it would seem the answer to our question is "no". Intuition and our equations tell us "no". We tend to think of a particle as being a piece of matter that occupies points in space and has mass. But who is to say that our piece of matter does not have holes in it, leaving spacial points to be unoccupied by matter.

But quantum theory wants to tell us "yes, something can exist without mass". Science is telling us that the photon is a BOSON and has no mass, but has an energy level of
i x H x F(r) with i = Spin = 1 quantum.
By comparison, the mass of an electron is 9.109 x 10**(-31)kg
and its max speed is about 1% of the speed of light.
This latter statement of the massless photon does appear to totally contradict
E= M x C** = i x H x F(r).
This may be due to the fact that the energy of a single photon is so low that its mass is negligible.The mean frequency of light is 600 trillion hertz which is
600,000,000,000 or 6 x 10**(11). .
If we multiply that times Planks Constant, 6.62 x 10**(-34), we get E = 40 x 10**(-24) . And if me divide that number by
C** 8.99 x 10**(-16), we get M = 320 x 10**(-40) which is much, much smaller than an electron.
It takes 3.2 x 10**(18) photons to generate 1 joule of energy. 1 joule = .000000239 calories, so you can see there is very little energy in a photon. To arrive at more meaningful measurement results, scientists have lumped many, many photons in packets called quantums and that serve as a unit of measure.

Yet another reason for saying the photon is massless is that it is seen impossible for a mass to attain the speed of light. So if a photon had any mass at all, it would not be able to travel the speed of light.

In addition, quantum theory has come up with the SUPER POSITION PRINCIPLE which says if there are two possible states, A & B, for something, then it is possible for any combination of aA + bB to exist. So this could imply that the answer to our question is "yes".

.
6. IS THE PHOTON THE BASIC ELEMENT OF ALL SPACE?
.At this point, we might speculate that every point in space is a massless photon. "But wait", you say. "Then would not all of spacetime be lighted up?". Answer - "Not if the photon is not spinning". "But," you say. "Is a photon affected by gravity/". Answer - "Yes it is". It has been proven that gravity does bend light rays.

And what about the long-ago AETHER concept dismissed by the Michelson/Morley experiment.
Sufifcia to say, if the massless photon is the particle of spacetime, then it would offer no resistance to the earth flowing through it. In other words, the analogy of a boat crossing a flowing river would be incorrect.

Going back to Huygen's wave theory and comparing it to balls on a pool table, might not those balls on the pool table be representative of photons at rest in each point of spacetime?

Nevertheless, it is too early to draw this conclusion. There are many other things to consider.
.
.
7. IS THERE A SMALLEST DISTANCE?

.It is said that the smallest length of distance is PLANKS CONSTANT H which is 6.62 x 10**(-34) and that nothing can exists that is smaller than this. If we substitute MC**(2) for energy and C/£ for frequency, where M is mass, C is the speed of light, & £ is wave length, then we can come up with
M£ = 2/3 x 10**(-26).
What is important here is that mass and wave length are inversely proportional to each other.
THEREFORE, IF A POINT IN SPACE HAS NO MASS, THEN ITS WAVELENGTH IS AN INFINITE STRAIGHT LINE WHOSE FREQUENCY IS C/infinity, AKA ZERO.

So what is the reasoning behind saying that nothing can be smaller than PLANKS CONSTANT? Is this seemingly just another arbitrary restriction similar to saying that 0 must only be rational number, and not irrational?
.
.
D. CATCHING UP WITH EINSTEIN.

Einstein first came out with his SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY which dealt with two reference systems in motion at a constant speed relative to each other. His findings here included the further study of light which gave us his famous equation, E = MC**. He subsequently came out with his theory of GENERAL RELATIVITY which dealt with two reference systems in variable motions relative to each other, meaning they accelerated and or decelerated relative to each other, which in turn brought into play the consideration of gravity.

Einstein's findings, along with those of his contemporary scientists, eventually gave us the theory of the atom and quantum theory. I should mention here that quantum theory appears to be an attempt to find the smallest practical unit of measure with respect to describing and measuring atomic and subatomic particles and energies.The word "QUANTA" is singular and refers to a single package constituting a unit of measure of vary small particles, like photons and electrons, or packets of energy levels. The word "QUANTUM" is plural and expresses n number of quanta, where n can only be an integer. which is not irrational..

.
1 The IMPACT OF VELOCITY, V, UPON TIME.

Einstein, in his first studies of light, proclaimed that, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE SLOWER THE RATE OF TIME AND VISA VERSA. So here we see VELOCITY, V, aka SPEED BASED UPON TIME AND DISTANCE, changing the rate at which time passes.. In other words, the greater the speed, V, the less the rate at which time, T(r), passes and visa versa. It would seem as if V & T(r) are inversely proportional to some extent & can be expressed mathematically as:

V x T(r) = K (a fixed constant.)

But T(r) = C / L, where
C = the speed of light
L = the wave length of time,
ie, the distance between tics of the clock.

Therefore, V / L = K / C

In addition to this, Einstein went on to say, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE MORE MASS HE GAINS.". We will remember this when we get to gravity.

.
2. THE INCLUSION OF TIME AS A DIMENSION & ITS GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION.

In his Special Theory Of Relativity, Einstein addressed the relativistic issues of pure motion and time, the result being his recognition of time as a 4th dimension. But apparently he was somewhat remiss in his depicting graphical reference system of how space and time could could be represented. He relied upon another mathematician, Minkowski. One of the pictures attached here is that of Minkowski's graphical concept of space-time which most physicists agree upon. Part of the trick in understanding it is to realize that distance can be represented as time ASSUMING THE SPEED OF LIGHT IS THE UNIT OF MEASURE ALONG THE TIME AXIS. So there is very little difference from the old 3-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system in that regard. But in addition Minkowski added what is called a LIGHT CONE. Now I do not pretend to know what this light-cone purports to represent, but my best guess is that it is representative of the dispersion of light over time. But do not bet on it.

Speaking of reference systems, Einstein played with Non-Euclidian reference systems, envisioning manifolds and Gaussian Field representations. He did so making a distinction between an INERTIAL REFERENCE SYSTEM wherein the reference system is considered to be at absolute rest as opposed to a separate NON-INERTIAL REFERENCE SYSTEM which is moving with respect to an inertial reference system. This is so, because every person has their own unique frame of reference that move with respect to others.

Anyway let's move onward to the more interesting concepts of gravity which Einstein incorporated in his General Theory Of Relativity.

.
3. The IMPACT OF GRAVITY, G UPON TIME.

First, it is said that gravity travels at the speed of light, no slower and no faster. Secondly, in addition to gravity impacting the shape of space, it has also been proven that gravity has its effects upon time. The closer one is to the source of gravity, THE SLOWER TIME PASSES by. The farther away you are from the center of gravity, THE FASTER TIME PASSES.

It would seem as if G & T(r) are inversely proportional to some extent. In other words, the greater the gravity, the less the rate at which time passes and visa versa. This might be represented by the equation. Thus, we might expand our previous equation to include gravity expressed as

V x G x T(r) = K (a fixed constant.)
or
(V x G) / L = K / C

Remembering Einstein said, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE MORE MASS HE GAINS.", we can speculate that it may not be the increase of velocity that slows time directly. It may be that the increase in mass resulting from higher speed produces increased gravity that actually slows time. In this case we could simply omit V from our equation. But for now we will leave it in.

Now this equation may or may not be true, but it does help to understand the inverse relationships between TIME, GRAVITY, and SPEED. We know that G, gravity, is relative to mass. We know that V, velocity is relative to the distance between points in space and time. But we still do not know what the variable TIME is relative to.

.
4. MORE ABOUT GRAVITY "WARPING" SPACE.

Well before Einstein, it was Newton who first introduced the idea that two separate pieces of matter attracted each other via a direct force which he could compute. But when Einstein came along, the picture was changed from a direct force to an indirect force whereby spacetime served as an intermediary. Two pieces of matter in close proximity would come together as a result of their separate respective stretching or squeezing of spacetime and not as the result of a direct force between them.

Einstein finally came up with his equation of General Relativity,
G(uv)=(8pi G/C****)T(uv).

Where: G = Newtons Gravitational Constant
C = The Speed Of Light
pi = the usual irrational constant.
T(uv) = an energy-momentum tensor.
This involves mass, M, & velocity, V.
G(uv) = a curvature tensor.
This includes TIME ..
God only knows what this is,
but let me try to explain as I have heard.

The left side, G(uv), says that space-time is shaped by the right side which represents the distribution of matter. In other words, space-time is malleable, not some unknown infinity.

This may be all fine and dandy, but we need to know, "What is a tensor"?". In mathematics, a tensor is an algebraic object that describes a linear mapping from one set of algebraic objects to another. Objects that tensors may map between include, but are not limited to, vectors and scalars, and, recursively, even other tensors. Tensors are inherently related to vector spaces and their dual spaces, and can take several different forms – for example: a scalar, a vector, a dual vector at a point, or a multi-linear map between vector spaces. Euclidean vectors and scalars (which are often used in elementary physics and engineering applications where general relativity is irrelevant) are the simplest tensors.[1] While tensors are defined independent of any basis, the literature on physics often refers to them by their components in a basis related to a particular coordinate system. The third picture shown here is a diagram of a curvature tensor, but please do not ask me to explain it.

Even given all of this information, how in the world are we suppose to visualize it all.

Einstein said that gravity "warps" space-time. The 2nd attached picture is what has traditionally been known as the Trampoline example which is really pathetic. It is suppose to illustrate how a piece of material like earth causes a "gravity well" distortion in spacetime into which another piece of material (not shown) can fall. But this is really a mickey-mouse example, because it still relies upon there being a gravity force to pull the second piece of material down into its web. In addition to that, one might view this picture as the earth pushing spacetime away.

So just exactly what Einstein meant by "warping" space time is totally unclear. Did he mean to imply a pushing away force or a pulling force, because certainly it must be one of the two. Given the discovery of black holes, which Einstein initially uncovered, he must have meant "warping" as the result of a pulling force. But Einstein went a little further and claimed that gravity was a property of space-time. If this is the case, then it must be that every spacial point must be the source of a quantum gravity force, wherein matter enhances the attraction of spacial points like a piece of meat attracting flies.

At this point, I would like to compare Einstein's equation to what we previously came up with, ie, (V x G) / L = K / C.
Restating the equation, we have
L x K / C = V x G.
So now we can see the commonality between our equation and Einstein's equation on both the left and ride sides. We don't really care about what our arbitrary K / C is. All that counts is that the pertinent factors of time gravity and velocity are correct in their relationship to each other. And of course, Einstein's equation is more complete and correct.

.
5. VISUALIZING GRAVITY WARPING SPACE.

I find the typical Trampoline Picture of gravity warping space to be somewhat unacceptable in that it leads us to believe gravity pushes spacetime away. It would be better if the center of the earth were shown lower at the apex depicted. So let's see if we can come up with a more realistic picture.

If you will, imagine 2 bicycles wheels on a bike as in my example #3. The spokes on the wheels represent the force of gravity emanating radially outward from the center of each wheel where the respective masses are located. Einstein's claim is that the spacetime between the wheels is" warped" by the force of each wheel's gravity. So now, let's ask some questions.

a. WHICH DIRECTION IS FORCE OF GRAVITY OF EACH WHEEL (along the spokes of the wheel) ACTING RELATIVE TO THE WHEEL ON ITS OWN.? Either each wheel is pushing outward away from its center or pulling inward toward its center. This may sound like a stupid question, but Trampoline picture indicates a pushing rather than a pulling.
If the force of gravity were pushing away, then it would stand to reason that all matter would be highly compressed leaving no room for electrons to fly around the atom's nucleus. So obviously, the force of gravity must be a "pulling" force, which we all knew anyway. So gravity is an "attractive" force, not a "repelling" force.

b. UPON WHAT IS THE FORCE OF GRAVITY ACTING EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY? Obviously, the force of gravity acts upon two physical bodies, (ie, matter having mass). But Einstein claims that the resulting action is an indirect result of gravity "warping" spacetime. So how can this be? Again, the impact upon spacetime cannot be a "pushing" aside force, because if this were the case, the two bodies would avoid each other. So the two forces of gravity must be "pulling" upon spacetime. This makes it a tug-of-war upon spacetime between the two bodies. This means that spacetime itself must have some particle-like or quantum characteristic.BUT WHAT ?????

CHAPTER 2.
THE FABRIC OF SPACE, BLACK HOLES, AND THE ESSENCE OF TIME

.
A. PERCEPTION.

1. IRRATIONAL NUMBERS.

An irrational (or quasi irrational) number is a very unique in that it cannot be subdivided any further into equal parts.So in a certain sense, it has its own unique identity. No matter, it does not qualify as a very basic unit of measure, because any rational multiples of it result in constructions of the unmeasurable. Matter, being a construction of mass. cannot exist in irrational space. But an electromagnetic wave can and must partially exist in in irrational space, because it is based upon a periodic spin,which requires the use of the irrational constant, PI, in computing wavelength which too is irrational..

An irrational number is one which has no ending or repeating pattern after the decimal point. An irrational multiplied by an irrational number may or may not yield a rational number. But an irrational number multiplied by any rational number yields another irrational number, EXCEPT FOR "0" WHICH IS DEFINED TO BE A RATIONAL INTEGER. So quite obviously we have an exception that creates a contradiction when it comes to the number zero.

.
3. FURTHER INVESTIGATION, COLLAPSING SPHERES.

Now consider the case of a virtual circle or sphere collapsing upon its center point.

The definition of a circle or sphere is the locus of points equidistant from a point in space. In a 3D Cartesian reference system, a sphere is defined by R*2 = x*2 + y*2 + z*2., where R is the radius and x,y,z are the coordinates in space. It should be obvious that if R is 0, then x, y, & z are all 0. So far so good.

But another way of defining a sphere is by the rotation of a circle about an axis. And as we all know, C = 2R x PI, where R is the radius of a rational distance & C is the circumference, or the locus of points around the center point of the circle or sphere.

.
4. CONSISTENCY OF REASONING.

BUT PI IS IRRATIONAL, WHICH MEANS THAT C MUST BE IRRATIONAL, WHICH IN TURN MEANS THE LOCUS OF SOME OF THE POINTS EQUIDISTANT FROM THE CENTER ARE IRRATIONAL, WHILE OTHERS MAY BE RATIONAL. (Note: When z = 0 & x = 4 & y =3,; R = 5, all being rational points.) NOW WHEN R BECOMES ZERO (which we assume initially to be rational), THE IRRATIONAL POINTS WHICH WERE IN THE CIRCUMFERENCE ALL CONVERGE UPON WHAT WAS THE RATIONAL CENTER POINT AND MERGE INTO THAT CENTER POINT, THEREBY FORMING A POINT WHICH IS BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL. THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE THE RADIUS HAS BECOME ZERO, THEN THOSE IRRATIONAL POINTS THAT FORMED THE CIRCUMFERENCE SIMPLY DISAPPEAR. IT IS MORE CONSISTENT TO VIEW THEM AS OVERLAYING THE RATIONAL CENTER POINT AND MERGING WITH THAT CENTER POINT. THIS IN TURN MEANS THAT ZERO MUST BE BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL AT THE SAME TIME, NOT SIMPLY ONE OR THE OTHER. SO WHAT WE HAVE DONE HERE IS TO APPLY THE SUPER POSITION PRINCIPLE. FURTHERMORE, ALL POINTS IN SPACE MUST BE BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL. BUT HOW CAN THIS BE? THE ONLY EXPLANATION IS THAT EACH POINT IN SPACE OSCILLATES BETWEEN THE RATIONAL STATE AND THE IRRATIONAL STATE.

.
5. FURTHER CONJECTURE.

AT THIS POINT WE NOW MUST ASK, "WHAT IS THE NATURE OF THIS OSCILLATION OF A POINT IN SPACE ?". THERE ARE THESE POSSIBILITIES

a. EACH POINT IN SPACE SIMPLY CHANGES ITS "COLOR" FROM RATIONAL TO IRRATIONAL AND BACK AGAIN. IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS SIMPLY REPETITIVELY EXPOSING TWO FACES OF THE SAME COIN.

b. EACH POINT IN SPACE HAS A LITTLE WIGGLE ROOM TO VIBRATE BETWEEN THE RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL, BEING CONSTRAINED BY AN INFINITESIMAL IRRATIONAL DISTANCE.

c. EACH POINT IN SPACE EXPANDS AND CONTRACTS ITS RADIUS BETWEEN RATIONAL 0 AND THE SMALLEST IRRATIONAL DISTANCE, BEING CONSTRAINED BY THE INFINITESIMAL IRRATIONAL DISTANCE.

d. HOWEVER IN OBSERVING PARTICLE-WAVE DUALITY, CURRENT DAY QUANTUM PHYSICS HAS COME TO REGARD THE IDEA THAT A QUANTUM FORCE FIELD CAN BE SOMEWHAT INDEPENDENT OF MATTER AND OCCUPY SPACE WITHOUT IT HAVING A MASS. IT WAS THE PHOTON THAT FIRST GAVE RISE TO THIS IDEA, BECAUSE IT DEMONSTRATES THE PROPERTIES OF BEING A REAL MATERIAL PARTICLE WITH MASS AND
BEING A MASSLESS ENERGY WAVE. THIS IS KNOWN AS PARTICLE-WAVE DUALITY. SUCH BEING THE CASE, IT IS NOT UNTHINKABLE TO ACCEPT THE IDEA THAT OUR SPACIAL POINT COULD OSCILLATE BETWEEN BEING A MASSLESS FIELD AND A REAL PARTICLE HAVING MASS. IN OTHER WORDS, EACH POINT IN SPACE COULD BE WHAT i WOULD CALL A NOW-YOU-SEE-IT/NOW-YOU-DONT PARTICLE, AKA, A "NUCINUD" ENTITY, PROBABLY ALSO KNOW AS THE ELUSIVE GRAVITON PARTICLE.

e. If the preceding does hold water and IF THE OSCILLATIONS OF ALL POINTS ARE IN SYNC WITH EACH OTHER VIA SOME INTERCONNECTING LINKAGE BETWEEN POINTS (LIKE GRAVITY) , then it is reasonable to say that the fabric of all space is comprised of two subspaces, ie, the rational subspace and the irrational subspace. Based on this idea, we might even conjecture that all of space flips back and forth between the two subspaces, thereby creating a motion picture reality. (Note: Refer to the attached Minkowski graph and envision the x-y plane as progressing through time along the time axis in a flip-flop fashion between the rational an irrational.)

However, it may be that the oscillations of all points are asynchronous, ie, not in sync. And if this is true, then the concept of a synchronous and continuous time across all of space is ka-put, as well as the idea of there being any continuity across space-time.

.
6. RECAP - THE "NUCINUD" PARTICLE-POINT.

This writing has theorized the existence of a
NOW-YOU-SEE-IT-NOW-YOU-DONT (aka NUCINUD) PARTICLE-POINT of which all of space is composed.

1)The particle-point is said to oscillate in size from zero to some infinitesimal size. Furthermore, given the current day thinking that treats a massless force field (like a photon) as a real entity, it is conceivable that our nucinud particle-point could oscillate between being a massless force field and being a real particle with mass. This conforms to Einstein and quantum theory recognizing a force field as being independent of matter.

2)The particle-point is the source of gravity (a directional force field) and is enticed by matter to collect inside matter like a bunch of flies being attracted to dead meat. Because of its attraction to other points like itself, it may merge with those other points, thereby increasing the force of its own gravity. And because of its attraction to other particle-points like itself, any motion of the particle-point causes its domain and the domain of neighboring particle- points to be stretched. Furthermore, the particle-point's quantum gravity links it with its adjacent particle-points, thereby providing a linkage between all such particle-points and assuring a synchronous continuity of all space-time.

This conforms to Einstein declaring gravity to be a property of space-time.

3) The particle-point's oscillation period is slowed by the increased presence of its own gravity. This conforms to the observation that gravity slows down time.

4) In addition, there may be a force field that is orthogonal to the gravity force field in a relationship similar to the relationship of electricity to magnetism.

.
7. BLACK HOLES.

From the previous discussion about a collapsing virtual sphere, it should be obvious that this is exactly a description of matter collapsing into a black hole, the only difference being we have now added the presence of matter which exhibits the property of gravity.

If we consider matter to be composed of real rational points in space, then the radius of a black hole must be real, but its circumference, or EVENT HORIZON, must be irrational points in space. Either this or visa versa. No matter, this should give us some insight into the nature of space and matter at the quantum level, where current thought is focused upon multi-dimensionality, particle and string theory.

As a side note black holes having an extremely large mass are known to emit low frequency gravity waves, near sound, when they merge with another black hole. This is not to say that they do not also emit other very high frequency radiation, like gamma and x-rays.

.
.
B. POSTMORTEM.

.
1.. MY APOLOGY.

In association with QUANTUM THEORY, there appears to be a popular belief that there exists the smallest size that anything can exist. Quite obviously, in bringing up and applying IRRATIONAL numbers in my depiction of points in space, I have possibly created a schism about what the very smallest size that a thing can be. And quite obviously, I have diverted from current thinking of there being an absolute smallest particle size to thinking that the very smallest particle can completely disappear to zero size and reappear. In other words, we have a "NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T" , aka NUCINUD, PARTICLE/SPACIAL-POINT. This may conflict with the PLANK CONSTANT idea of there being an absolute smallest size that never goes to zero.

If what I am saying is true, there remains a question as to the exact nature of time. That question is, " Is it not possible that each somewhat autonomous particle/point of space, by virtue of its oscillating size is somehow linked to its neighbors via an oscillating minute wave it produces?". And is it not then possible that the oscillations of all spacial-points be in sync with each other, thus producing the over all effect of time?". "Can each such a spacial point not be the generator of some isotropic radiation?".

.
2. A QUESTION OF UNIFORMITY BETWEEN GRAVITY & ELECTROMAGNETICS.

In electromagnetics, there are two interwoven but distinct forces, ie, electrical and magnetic. Could be there is a companion force orthogonal to gravity yet to be discovered?
Perhaps, time is orthogonal to gravity.

.
3. A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR WHY THE WEAK NUCLEAR FORCE IS HELD IN CHECK BY THE STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE.

If the two forces are orthogonal to each other as with electro-magetics, then it may be that the weak nuclear force whose direction is a push outward is held in by an encircling strong nuclear force.

..
4. REBUTTLEMENTS:

a. POINTS IN SPACE HAVE NO PROPERTIES LIKE RATIONALITY OR IRRATIONALITY. THE DEFINITION OF A STRAIGHT LINE IS THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS, A & B. ONLY DISTANCE AND/OR TIME CAN BE IRRATIONAL.

ANSWER: Assume you have a "straight" line between points A & B, but the distance is "irrational". If the distance is a "straight" line, then you can never get exactly from point A to point B, because you will either fall short of point B or skip over it claiming to hit point B. So obviously something is amiss.

The possible explanation for this is that something diverted your trip very slightly, causing you not to go in a "straight" line as you presumed. What could that be? Either:
1). You "locus" of points took you slightly off course through an intermediate "irrational point,
or
2). Some mysterious force "bent" your path along the way.

Now consider the distance between A & B as shrinking almost to zero, but it is still irrational. Either that irrational intermediate point is still there or that mysterious force is still there. And as we collapse that distance to zero, there is no reason to believe that anything has changed. Thus, the point must take on the properties of what was exterior to it.

CHAPTER 3.
THE BIG BANG.

.
I. CURRENT UNDERSTANDING.

As a result of both scientific and technological advancement over the last century, it has become pretty clear that our universe began with a BIG BANG. Whether it was caused by a collision of some preexisting entities or caused by the immediate appearance out of nowhere of a singularity. ie a "POINT" may be a concern, but it should be obvious that were it a collision of preexisting entities, then the universe must have existed before the collision, which leads one to question how those entities came about. Therefore, the more reasonable viewpoint is to regard it as starting from a singularity, thereby eliminating the endless search for a beginning.

This BIG BANG CREATION THEORY tells us that both space, time and matter were all created immediately 13.8 billion years ago from a singularity that erupted into an explosion, with matter evolving from a super-heated plasma, that turned into the basic particles of the atom as it cooled, that turned into hydrogen and helium atoms, that turned into stars, which in turn created the heavier elements we know of today. It also tells us that light was created which was everywhere all at once and which ultimately turned into microwaves and can be found today as CMB, COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND noise that still travel everywhere in the universe.

.
II. QUESTIONS:

.
A. SOME SCIENTIST ARGUE THAT THE UNIVERSE IS A
"ISOLATED SYSTEM".

The word, "SYSTEM", implies some degree of enclosure, and therefore an entity that can be somewhat described. The word "DESCRIBE" also implies an enclosure since the syllable "SCRIBE" means to circumnavigate or enclose.
To point out the differences in system types, science recognizes 3 kinds of systems:
1. "ISOLATED" where neither energy or matter can escape.
An "isolated" system is one completely enclosed an
sealed off. The 2ND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
pertains to this kind of system. So it may be that some
scientists opt for this type of universe to preserve that
law.
2. "CLOSED" where energy can escape, but not matter.
In other words, there is a small exit.
3. "OPENED" where both energy and matter can escape.
This latter type of system should be self-evident.

At this point let us consider some possible semmetrical enclosures of the universe. We will exclude the unsemmetrical, because they could be like fractals and just too difficult to apply simple math.
So considering only the symmetrical, we have only four possibilities
1. A TETRAHEDRON
2. A CUBE
3. A DODECAHEDRON.
4. A SPHERE.
So which of these would be the most realistic to enclose our universe? Certainly not the first three, because it is most unlikely that our universe would have sharp edges as required by a polyhedron. That leaves us with a sphere.

So let's go back and see if a sphere really is representative of our universe being an isolated system. If the universe is indeed "isolated" and spherical , then there must be a discernable boundary at a rational distance from its center. And if the universe is spherical, then its surface must contain some irrational points as we saw previously in our discussion of a point. This must mean our sphere has holes in it, making it impossible to be an isolated enclosed system.

Of course it can be argued that the universe is not a perfect sphere. But if that is true, then how do you account for what must have been the typical symmetrical radiation pattern of
a shock wave or dispersion of what-ever that is typical of an explosion?

So I would like to know what proof these scientist have of the universe being an isolated system? Have they in fact ventured to the outer boundaries and found all of the doors shut.? Or are they just being lazy, arrogant and closed minded?

Of course, isolation of variables is essential to understanding the cause and effect of things. But to claim that the Universe is always an isolated entity is beyond all reason. There is no such thing as always or never. Gates open and gates close, and we know not when, where, and/or by what means or who.

.
B. WHAT THIS, NO CENTER TO THE UNIVERSE?

Scientists are telling us per Google,
"There is no centre of the universe! According to the standard theories of cosmology, the universe started with a "Big Bang" about 14 thousand million years ago and has been expanding ever since. Yet there is no centre to the expansion; it is the same everywhere."

Apparently scientists do not consider the original spot where the Big Bang started as part of the universe. This could only mean that the universe is sandwiched in between two concentric spheres, assuming a symmetrical explosion. If the explosion was non-semmetrical, then the universe would still be sandwiched in between an outer layer and an inner layer, assuming the point of the explosion was surrounded by all the debris which is not unreasonable. But then again, one might conjecture the universe as being a smoke ring blown through a tiny hole. One could almost imagine God smoking a pipe and blowing a smoke ring. He may be even blowing more than one smoke ring, thereby creating multi-verses No matter, there must be a center point of origin and regardless of whether or not scientist include it as part of the universe.

.
C. LOOKING INTO THE DISTANT PAST.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WE ARE LOOKING FARTHER BACK INTO TIME AS WE PEER DEEPER INTO SPACE?

We must begin with the fact that there is nothing that can travel faster than light. And because of the vast distances between galaxies, it can take millions of light years for the light from a far distant galaxy to reach our galaxy. This means that an immense amount of time has past by the time we see the light, which means we are looking at history.

With the advent of space travel, our imaginations can go wild with the idea of visiting distant galaxies. Yet science tells us that the deeper we peer into space, then the farther back in time we go. But to be more precise, the deeper we look into space, we see light (or electromagnetic radiation) emitted long, long ago. So this raises the question, "If what we are seeing now actually occurred millions of years ago, then how do we know those objects are still there?" If in truth they are not presently there, then is there really any point in trying to converse with them, let alone attempt to travel to them? This not to say we should not even bother to be aware and study these past events. But they need to be recognized as historical events long past that should not necessarily effect our current day presence.

For an observer to say, "I just saw new stars being born" is not necessarily correct. It is more honest to say "I have seen stars that were born x years ago". To him I would say "If you are going to travel to some distant star, don't be surprised if it is gone before you get there.

Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe appears to be expanding due to the "Doppler Red Shift" he observed of light coming from very distant stars.. From that we have concluded that the more distant starts are "accelerating" away, leading us to theorize that the universe is expanding as a whole attributed to the existence 'dark energy".

But there is something troubling about this. WHAT IS THE POINT THEY ARE EXPANDING FROM? WHERE IS THE CENTER POINT OF THE EXPLOSION? CAN WE NOT SEE LIGHT FROM DISTANT GALAXIES DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM US ON THE OTHER SIDE? WHAT IF THOSE MORE DISTANT STARS ARE NOT RECEDING AWAY FROM US LINEARLY, BUT ARE ACTUALLY CIRCULATING AROUND THE EDGES OF THE UNIVERSE?" IT WOULD STILL BE POSSIBLE TO OBSERVE A RED SHIFT AT THE RIGHT TIMES RELATIVE TO THE POSITION OF THE EARTH? These very simple questions remain to be answered by science, not some arbitrary statements of there being no center or that the universe is an isolated system. If you don't know, then say you don't know.

3. REFERENCE SYSTEMS RESTRICTION..
A reference system within the rational sub-space cannot be used to measure distances to points within the irrational sub-space, and visa versa. The ability to measure distance is restricted to the sub-space in which the measurement is being made.

4. The role of "TIME"
It may be that "time" is the resolving factor between rational space and irrational space. Therefore, it makes sense to speak of "space-time" as one complete entity.

E. IS THE VANISHING POINT ONE OR MANY?

Certainly someone has already considered this question, but just in case, I bring it up now.

Suppose two people are standing at opposite poles of the earth, each looking straight up. The question is;
"ARE THEY LOOKING AT DIFFERENT POINTS IN SPACE OR THE SAME ONE?'. This may sound like a stupid question, but it does deserve an answer, because we do know now that light does bend. If they are in fact the same point in space, then as we gaze into the heavens to the farthest light source from no matter where, are we not starring at the original single point of the Big Bang? And if true, then the universe is a CLOSED SYSTEM that happens to be expanding at the moment, possibly causing the effect of time.

Here are some observations.
As has been known for many centuries in art, as you look at something from an increasing distances, the smaller it becomes until it completely vanishes into a single point. Imagine a perfect cross whose limbs are the same length,d. The farther away you move from it (say distance D), the shorter the limb lengths appear. It would almost seem as if there is an inversely proportional relationship between D & d, whereby D x d = Constant K. This observation seems to hold true no matter in what direction you are looking. However, If we now take a larger cross whose limbs are of length s, we now have to be at a farther distance, S, from it before it vanishes. And where S x s = Constant C, it does not follow that Constant C = Constant K unless there is some other mitigating factor, like time, to produce some fixed universal constant X. Perhaps something like X = K/T(d) = C/T(s), where T(d) might be the time it takes light to travel the distance D & T(s) is the time for light to travel the distance S. But this is just mere conjecture.

Here is another view on the vanishing point which could contradict the idea of it being a single point. Instead of a cross made of wood, imagine the cross is made of two strings. You grab one of the strings at the center and begin to pull. The ends of the string are not secured, but have heavy weights on
them so they can reluctantly move. As you pull, the string beings to bend, and the two ends come closer together. If you pull long enough, the two ends will come together as if they were one.

In this analogy, the string you are pulling on is actually the separate light beams of each point along the lateral length of the string (or coss). And the light beams from each end of the string converge into one before those other light beams emitted from the points closer to the center of the string. In other words, the light being emitted from the cross is bending to the vanishing point where all visibility of the cross is gone.

Of course, this too is conjecture, but it does destroy the prior view. And it further falls in line with the idea that it takes a longer time for the light from the ends of the cross to reach your eye than the light from the center of the cross.

( Introduction & Chapter 1 history of science complete)

INTRODUCTION. - TIME AND SPACE.

What does it mean when we say that time passes by faster or more slowly? What are we really saying?
We are talking about the "rate", T(r), at which time passes, which can also be thought of as a "frequency" similar to electromagnetic radiation. In this analogy, do not confuse long wave length, L, with higher frequency. Longer wave length means slower time rate or frequency which means the slower time passes. The greater the rate (or frequency) of time tics, the faster time passes, and visa versa. A more visual way to see it, imagine a timeline with the tics of a clock separating equal segments, L, of time. The slower time flows, the longer each time segment, L, will be, meaning the rate, T(r), will be less. The exact equation relating frequency to wave length is

L x T(r) = C, the constant speed of light

Now you ask, "How can we talk about the "fabric" of space when there is nothing there?". It was Einstein who first proclaimed that space and gravity interact, claiming that gravity warps space. Now I accept this idea, although it could be that space shapes gravity. No matter, it seems obvious from this that there is something in space we cannot see, and therefore we can speak of space as if it were a "fabric" or maybe even a fluid.

.
This document is a pure mathematical viewpoint and reasoning in an attempt to better understand what science has been telling us today about quantum theory and cosmology .
IT IS A KEY THEME OF THIS DOCUMENT THAT ONE CANNOT TRAVEL AN IRRATIONAL OR A QUASI-IRRATIONAL DISTANCE WITHIN THE SPACIAL REALITY OF WHICH WE ARE CURRENTLY AWARE. HOWEVER, THAT FACT DOES NOT MEAN THERE ARE NO IRRATIONAL POINTS IN A SEPARATE SPACE OF WHICH WE ARE NOT AWARE. NOR DOES IT MEAN THAT A STATE OF IRRATIONALITY CANNOT TEMPORARILY EXIST WITHIN THE SPACIAL REALITY OF WHICH WE ARE AWARE.THE PERSPECTIVE TAKEN HEREIN IS THAT THERE EXISTS A RATIONAL SUBSPACE AND AN IRRATIONAL SUBSPACE, THE TWO COMPRISING ALL OF SPACE.,

The first chapter presents:
1. the algebraic symbology I use,
2. some key mathematical & scientific information & equations handed down to us,
3. some pertinent scientific history.
Where the reader may skip over the first two sections of this chapter, using those sections only for quick reference, the reader should not skip anything after that lest he become lost in comprehending anything that has evolved in science since the days of Einstein.

The second chapter deals with the very small, ie, quantum theory, space and apparent nothingness.

The third chapter deals with the very large, ie, the BIG BANG . Both the very small and very large are described as contracting and expanding spheres, the commonality being found in the concept of a virtual singularity, ie, a "point".

In this document, I question some of the following contemporary and conventional wisdom

1. ZERO IS ALWAYS A RATIONAL NUMBER.
2. NOTHING IS SMALLER THAN PLANKS CONSTANT.
3 THERE IS NO AETHER.
4. THERE IS NO CENTER TO THE UNIVERSE.
5. THE UNIVERSE IS AN ISOLATED SYSTEM.
6..COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND NOISE IS STRETCHED OUT LIGHT FROM THE BIG BANG.

Only the first 5 do I seriously question.

CHAPTER 1.
SYMBOL LEGEND, ABOUT NUMBERS, & SCIENTIFIC HISTORY.
.
.
A. Before proceeding , here is a legend of the symbols I will use:

CONSTANTS:
C = the constant speed of light in a vacuum
G(n) = Newton's gravitational constant
PI = C(c)/D(d) = 3.14......
H = Plank's constant = 6.62 x 10**(-34)
W = Wien's Constant = .00294 degree-meters
K = unimportant constant

VARIABLES:
V(n) = Newton's velocity
A(n) = Newton's acceleration
M(i) = Newton's inertial mass
F(n) = Newton's force variable
G(f) = Newton's force of gravity
T = time
T(t) = temperature absolute
T(r) = the rate of time = F(r)
F(r) = frequency or radiation frequency
S(r) spin rate
L = wave length
A(r) = wave amplitude
D(d) = linear/longitudinal distance
S(d) = sinusoidal distance
D(c) = diameter
C(c) = circumference
E = work/energy
n =an integer quantum number

I may drop the subscript when the context in which the symbol appears is clear or if there is no other use of the capital letter..

In addition, the following equations are observed:
F(n) = M x A Newton's equation
E = F(n) x d Newton's definition of work/energy
E = n x H x F(r) Plank's Law
E = M x C** Einsteins Law
L x F(r) = C Maxwell equation
T(t) x L max = W Wien's Temperature-Wave Length Law
where:
x = multiplication operator
/ = division operator
* = exponential operator
.
.

Numbers give us a way of measuring things..
And the ability to measure requires the ability to divide that which is being measured into smaller, but equal, parts.
Another word for measuring is "QUANTIFICATION" which gives us a little clue into the meaning of "QUANTUM THEORY". Numbers are also used to label.

There are different kinds of numbers, some of which can be divided into equal parts, and others not so. There are WHOLE NUMBERS aka INTEGERS, ODD & EVEN NUMBERS, PRIMARY NUMBERS, REAL NUMBERS, IMAGINARY NUMBERS, FRACTIONAL NUMBERS, etc...
But here I am focusing upon IRRATIONAL NUMBERS
.
1. An IRRATIONAL NUMBER is one in which there is no end to non-repeating numbers to the right of the decimal point.

2. PI is an irrational number.

3. With the exception of zero, an irrational number multiplied times any rational or irrational number yields an irrational number. The same is true of division. The same is true of addition and subtraction, except when two irrational numbers whose numbers to the right of the decimal point yield a zero sum.

4. There are at least four times more irrational numbers than rational numbers. This is because any mathematical operation ( + - x /) between a rational number and an irrational number always yields an irrational number.

5. There being no distinct classification for numbers that have a repeating non-zero number sequence to the right of the decimal point, I call these QUASI IRRATIONAL NUMBERS. Example: 1/3 = .3333333....

C. BEFORE EINSTEIN
.
.
1. THE DUAL NATURE OF LIGHT. WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY.

Even before Einstein, scientists had narrowed down the speed of light, C. And for centuries, scientist had at some times considered light to be a particle (now called a photon), while at other times considered it to be an electromagnetic wave. Newton and Huygens in the 17th century were among the first to really study light. Newton supported the particle idea and Huygens supported the wave idea. Then early in the 19th century, Young demonstrated his Double Slit experiment that emphasized the wave idea. Others continued like Michelson/Morley, with Einstein and others following up to give us quantum theory.

What has since evolved is a very complicated picture of the photon being both a particle and a wave. This being the case, let me try to draw a simple straight forward analogy of this duality.

Envision a wheel of your car. This is representative of a photon. Imagine a huge polarized bar magnet stuck perfectly to the wheel across its diameter from one edge, through the center, and to the other edge of the wheel. Now, before you begin to drive it, assume the car is up on blocks lifting the wheels off the ground. You start the engine, engage the wheels, step on the gas and observe the revolutions per minute, rpms. For this example, we assume that the rpms is the same as the rate at which the wheel spins and is the SPIN FREQUENCY, S(r). The spin frequency produces the periodic motion of the magnet's poles which generate an oscillating electromagnetic field of radiation having a frequency of F(r). So the spin rate, S(r), and the frequency, F(r), are one and the same. The resulting radiated wavelength, L, is the same as the circumference, C(r), of the wheel. And the wave's amplitude, A, is the radius, R, of the wheel. Meanwhile, the path of the magnet's north pole is a circle relative to both the ground and the center of the wheel. In short, what we have here is an electromagnetic wave of frequency F(r) and wavelength L that travels at the speed of light C.

Now you lower the car to the ground and begin to drive it at the same revolutions per minute as before Relative to the car, the magnet is still generating the same electromagnetic radiation and has the same frequency and wave length and amplitude as before. And the path of the magnet's north pole motion relative to the center of the wheel is still a circle. But now we ask 'WHAT IS THE PATH OF THE MAGNET'S NORTH POLE MOTION RELATIVE TO AN OBSERVER ON THE GROUND AS THE CAR IS MOVING LONGITUDINALLY? THE ANSWER IS "A SIGN WAVE" WHICH STILL HAS THE SAME AMPLITUDE. BUT EVERYTHING ELSE IS DIFFERENT WITH REGARDS TO FREQUENCY AND WAVELENGTH OF THE GENERATED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD. .

Going a little further, let's look at what the electromagnetic radiation looks like to our observer standing still in front of your car as you drive towards him. To such an observer, the fact of your velocity towards him compresses the peak-to-peak wavelength of the generated electromagnetic wave. This means a shorter wavelength, which in turn means higher frequency. Were the observer standing behind your car, the opposite would be true. The wavelength would get longer and the frequency would be less. This is called Doppler Frequency Shifting

To this point, our analogy may not be complete, the reason being that the wavelength of the generated electromagnetic wave was in sync with the linear longitudinal distance traveled by 1 complete revolution of the wheel. Suppose the spinning magnet is not attached to the wheel, but instead is inside the car and not spinning at the same rate as the car's wheels.

No matter, the same Doppler Frequency Shift will occur, maybe not the same as before, but it will still occur as long as your car is moving. It is the same type of Doppler Frequency Shift as when you hear a train whistle go from a high pitch to a low pitch as it passes by you. So now we see that there can be a distinct difference between the actual periodic spin speed, ie, frequency, and the observed frequency depending upon the relative motion between the electromagnetic wave source and the observer.

This analogy of a photon may not be exactly correct. Certainly it does not cover all of the intricacies of light, especially Huygens view that light appears to replicate and distribute itself at every point in space. Although Huygens did not support the particle view, his theory seems to be liken to a cue ball hitting a racked up set of balls on a pool table. No matter, I hope this presents at least some idea of how the wave-particle duality idea works.

.
2. IS PLANKS CONSTANT THE SMALLEST LENGTH?
Even before Einstein, Max Plank made a very important empirical finding establishing a relationship between energy and radiant frequency. It is called PLANKS LAW expressed as E = HF(r),
where E is energy, F(r) is frequency and H is Planks constant.

It is said that the smallest length of distance is PLANKS CONSTANT which is 6.62 x 10**(-34) and that nothing can exists that is smaller than this. If we substitute MC**(2) for energy and C/£ for frequency, where M is mass, C is the speed of light, & £ is wave length, then we can come up with
M£ = 2/3 x 10**(-26).
What is important here is that mass and wave length are inversely proportional to each other.
THEREFORE, IF A POINT IN SPACE HAS NO MASS, THEN ITS WAVELENGTH IS AN INFINITE STRAIGHT LINE WHOSE FREQUENCY IS C/infinity, AKA ZERO.

So what is the reasoning behind saying that nothing can be smaller than PLANKS CONSTANT? Is this seemingly just another arbitrary restriction similar to saying that 0 must only be rational number, and not irrational?

.
D. CATCHING UP WITH EINSTEIN.

Einstein first came out with his SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY which dealt with two reference systems in motion at a constant speed relative to each other. His findings here included the further study of light which gave us his famous equation, E = MC**. He subsequently came out with his theory of GENERAL RELATIVITY which dealt with two reference systems in variable motions relative to each other, meaning they accelerated and or decelerated relative to each other, which in turn brought into play the consideration of gravity.

Einstein's findings, along with those of his contemporary scientists, eventually gave us the theory of the atom and quantum theory. I should mention here that quantum theory appears to be an attempt to find the smallest practical unit of measure with respect to describing and measuring atomic and subatomic particles and energies.The word "QUANTA" is singular and refers to a single package constituting a unit of measure of vary small particles, like photons and electrons, or packets of energy levels. The word "QUANTUM" is plural and expresses n number of quanta, where n can only be an integer. which is not irrational..

.
1 The IMPACT OF VELOCITY, V, UPON TIME.

Einstein, in his first studies of light, proclaimed that, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE SLOWER THE RATE OF TIME AND VISA VERSA. So here we see VELOCITY, V, aka SPEED BASED UPON TIME AND DISTANCE, changing the rate at which time passes.. In other words, the greater the speed, V, the less the rate at which time, T(r), passes and visa versa. It would seem as if V & T(r) are inversely proportional to some extent & can be expressed mathematically as:

V x T(r) = K (a fixed constant.)

But T(r) = C / L, where
C = the speed of light
L = the wave length of time,
ie, the distance between tics of the clock.

Therefore, V / L = K / C

In addition to this, Einstein went on to say, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE MORE MASS HE GAINS.". We will remember this when we get to gravity.

.
2. THE INCLUSION OF TIME AS A DIMENSION & ITS GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION.

In his Special Theory Of Relativity, Einstein addressed the relativistic issues of pure motion and time, the result being his recognition of time as a 4th dimension. But apparently he was somewhat remiss in his depicting graphical reference system of how space and time could could be represented. He relied upon another mathematician, Minkowski. One of the pictures attached here is that of Minkowski's graphical concept of space-time which most physicists agree upon. Part of the trick in understanding it is to realize that distance can be represented as time ASSUMING THE SPEED OF LIGHT IS THE UNIT OF MEASURE ALONG THE TIME AXIS. So there is very little difference from the old 3-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system in that regard. But in addition Minkowski added what is called a LIGHT CONE. Now I do not pretend to know what this light-cone purports to represent, but my best guess is that it is representative of the dispersion of light over time. But do not bet on it.

Speaking of reference systems, Einstein played with Non-Euclidian reference systems, envisioning manifolds and Gaussian Field representations. He did so making a distinction between an INERTIAL REFERENCE SYSTEM wherein the reference system is considered to be at absolute rest as opposed to a separate NON-INERTIAL REFERENCE SYSTEM which is moving with respect to an inertial reference system. This is so, because every person has their own unique frame of reference that move with respect to others.

Anyway let's move onward to the more interesting concepts of gravity which Einstein incorporated in his General Theory Of Relativity.

.
3. The IMPACT OF GRAVITY, G UPON TIME.

First, it is said that gravity travels at the speed of light, no slower and no faster. Secondly, in addition to gravity impacting the shape of space, it has also been proven that gravity has its effects upon time. The closer one is to the source of gravity, THE SLOWER TIME PASSES by. The farther away you are from the center of gravity, THE FASTER TIME PASSES.

It would seem as if G & T(r) are inversely proportional to some extent. In other words, the greater the gravity, the less the rate at which time passes and visa versa. This might be represented by the equation. Thus, we might expand our previous equation to include gravity expressed as

V x G x T(r) = K (a fixed constant.)
or
(V x G) / L = K / C

Remembering Einstein said, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE MORE MASS HE GAINS.", we can speculate that it may not be the increase of velocity that slows time directly. It may be that the increase in mass resulting from higher speed produces increased gravity that actually slows time. In this case we could simply omit V from our equation. But for now we will leave it in.

Now this equation may or may not be true, but it does help to understand the inverse relationships between TIME, GRAVITY, and SPEED. We know that G, gravity, is relative to mass. We know that V, velocity is relative to the distance between points in space and time. But we still do not know what the variable TIME is relative to.

.
4. MORE ABOUT GRAVITY "WARPING" SPACE.

Well before Einstein, it was Newton who first introduced the idea that two separate pieces of matter attracted each other via a direct force which he could compute. But when Einstein came along, the picture was changed from a direct force to an indirect force whereby spacetime served as an intermediary. Two pieces of matter in close proximity would come together as a result of their separate respective stretching or squeezing of spacetime and not as the result of a direct force between them.

Einstein finally came up with his equation of General Relativity,
G(uv)=(8pi G/C****)T(uv).

Where: G = Newtons Gravitational Constant
C = The Speed Of Light
pi = the usual irrational constant.
T(uv) = an energy-momentum tensor.
This involves mass, M, & velocity, V.
G(uv) = a curvature tensor.
This includes TIME ..
God only knows what this is,
but let me try to explain as I have heard.

The left side, G(uv), says that space-time is shaped by the right side which represents the distribution of matter. In other words, space-time is malleable, not some unknown infinity.

This may be all fine and dandy, but we need to know, "What is a tensor"?". In mathematics, a tensor is an algebraic object that describes a linear mapping from one set of algebraic objects to another. Objects that tensors may map between include, but are not limited to, vectors and scalars, and, recursively, even other tensors. Tensors are inherently related to vector spaces and their dual spaces, and can take several different forms – for example: a scalar, a vector, a dual vector at a point, or a multi-linear map between vector spaces. Euclidean vectors and scalars (which are often used in elementary physics and engineering applications where general relativity is irrelevant) are the simplest tensors.[1] While tensors are defined independent of any basis, the literature on physics often refers to them by their components in a basis related to a particular coordinate system. The third picture shown here is a diagram of a curvature tensor, but please do not ask me to explain it.

Even given all of this information, how in the world are we suppose to visualize it all.

Einstein said that gravity "warps" space-time. The 2nd attached picture is what has traditionally been known as the Trampoline example which is really pathetic. It is suppose to illustrate how a piece of material like earth causes a "gravity well" distortion in spacetime into which another piece of material (not shown) can fall. But this is really a mickey-mouse example, because it still relies upon there being a gravity force to pull the second piece of material down into its web. In addition to that, one might view this picture as the earth pushing spacetime away.

So just exactly what Einstein meant by "warping" space time is totally unclear. Did he mean to imply a pushing away force or a pulling force, because certainly it must be one of the two. Given the discovery of black holes, which Einstein initially uncovered, he must have meant "warping" as the result of a pulling force. But Einstein went a little further and claimed that gravity was a property of space-time. If this is the case, then it must be that every spacial point must be the source of a quantum gravity force, wherein matter enhances the attraction of spacial points like a piece of meat attracting flies.

At this point, I would like to compare Einstein's equation to what we previously came up with, ie, (V x G) / L = K / C.
Restating the equation, we have
L x K / C = V x G.
So now we can see the commonality between our equation and Einstein's equation on both the left and ride sides. We don't really care about what our arbitrary K / C is. All that counts is that the pertinent factors of time gravity and velocity are correct in their relationship to each other. And of course, Einstein's equation is more complete and correct.

.
5. VISUALIZING GRAVITY WARPING SPACE.

I find the typical Trampoline Picture of gravity warping space to be somewhat unacceptable in that it leads us to believe gravity pushes spacetime away. It would be better if the center of the earth were shown lower at the apex depicted. So let's see if we can come up with a more realistic picture.

If you will, imagine 2 bicycles wheels on a bike.
The spokes on the wheels represent the force of gravity emanating radially outward from the center of each wheel where the respective masses are located. Einstein's claim is that the spacetime between the wheels is" warped" by the force of each wheel's gravity. So now, let's ask some questions.

a. WHICH DIRECTION IS FORCE OF GRAVITY OF EACH WHEEL (along the spokes of the wheel) ACTING RELATIVE TO THE WHEEL ON ITS OWN.? Either each wheel is pushing outward away from its center or pulling inward toward its center. This may sound like a stupid question, but Trampoline picture indicates a pushing rather than a pulling.
If the force of gravity were pushing away, then it would stand to reason that all matter would be highly compressed leaving no room for electrons to fly around the atom's nucleus. So obviously, the force of gravity must be a "pulling" force, which we all knew anyway. So gravity is an "attractive" force, not a "repelling" force.

b. UPON WHAT IS THE FORCE OF GRAVITY ACTING EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY? Obviously, the force of gravity acts upon two physical bodies, (ie, matter having mass). But Einstein claims that the resulting action is an indirect result of gravity "warping" spacetime. So how can this be? Again, the impact upon spacetime cannot be a "pushing" aside force, because if this were the case, the two bodies would avoid each other. So the two forces of gravity must be "pulling" upon spacetime. This makes it a tug-of-war upon spacetime between the two bodies. This means that spacetime itself must have some particle-like or quantum characteristic.BUT WHAT ?????

.
6. CAN ANYTHING EXIST WITHOUT MASS?

First let us be clear in our understanding of "mass". "Mass" is "inertia", ie, the resistance to any forces being applied to "mass". It is not weight. In addition, "mass" can be thought of as the storehouse of energy. In a similar manner, "mass" might also be a storehouse for gravity.

It would seem the answer to our question is both yes and no. Intuition and our equations tell us "no". But quantum theory has come up with the SUPER POSITION PRINCIPLE which says if there are two possible states, A & B, for something, then it is possible for any combination of aA + bB to exist. So this could imply that the answer to our question is "yes". In addition, science is telling us that the photon has no mass, but has an energy level of
H x F(r) with Spin = 1 quantum.
So here again the answer appears to be "yes".

This latter statement of the massless photon does appear to totally contradict
E= M x C** = n x H x F(r).
This may be due to the fact that the energy of a single photon is so low that its mass is negligible. It takes 3.2 x 10**(18) photon to generate 1 joule of energy. 1 joule = .000000239 calories, so you can see there is very little energy in a photon. To arrive at more meaningful measurement results, scientists have lumped many, many photons in packets called quantums and that serve as a unit of measure.

.
7. IS THE PHOTON THE BASIC ELEMENT OF ALL SPACE?

Thus far, we have concluded that spacetime must have some seemingly massless particle-like attribute that enables it to respond to the gravitational forces of matter. The one known particle that could qualify as a candidate is the photon.

At this point, I return to the 17th century scientist, Huygen, who said that light is a wave that at each point in space along the way it generates "wavelets" which in turn generate subsequent wavelets. Thus light is propagated like ball colliding with other balls on a pool table, only his analogy was the wave action of water.

So might not those balls on the pool table be representative of photons at rest in each point of spacetime? Might not every point in spacetime really be a photon? "But wait", you say. "Then would not all of spacetime be lighted up?". Answer - "Not if the photon is not spinning". "But," you say. "Is a photon affected by gravity/". Answer - "Yes it is". It has been proven that gravity does bend light rays.

.
8. WHAT ABOUT THE LONG DISMISSED AETHER CONCEPT?
.
At this point, we can speculate that every point in space is a photon. But it does seem to fly in the face of a theory dismissed by experiment back in the late 1800s, ie, the Michelson/Morley experiment. That theory claimed that space was comprised of Aether particles and reasoned that the speed of the earth through it could be determined like a rowboat trying to cross a river. The experiment failed, resulting in the dismissal of there being any such thing as an Aether.
But now here we are again reconsidering the proposition.

Sufifcia to say, if the massless photon is the particle of spacetime, then it would offer no resistance to the earth flowing through it. In other words, the analogy of a boat crossing a flowing river is incorrect.
.

CHAPTER 2.
THE FABRIC OF SPACE, BLACK HOLES, AND THE ESSENCE OF TIME

I could easily stop at this point, satisfied that the question of the fabric of spacetime is answered. But I have more on my plate, ie, irrational numbers.
.
A. PERCEPTION.

1. IRRATIONAL NUMBERS.

An irrational (or quasi irrational) number is a very unique in that it cannot be subdivided any further into equal parts.So in a certain sense, it has its own unique identity. No matter, it does not qualify as a very basic unit of measure, because any rational multiples of it result in constructions of the unmeasurable. Matter, being a construction of mass. cannot exist in irrational space. But an electromagnetic wave can and must partially exist in in irrational space, because it is based upon a periodic spin,which requires the use of the irrational constant, PI, in computing wavelength which too is irrational..

An irrational number is one which has no ending or repeating pattern after the decimal point. An irrational multiplied by an irrational number may or may not yield a rational number. But an irrational number multiplied by any rational number yields another irrational number, EXCEPT FOR "0" WHICH IS DEFINED TO BE A RATIONAL INTEGER. So quite obviously we have an exception that creates a contradiction when it comes to the number zero.

.
3. FURTHER INVESTIGATION, COLLAPSING SPHERES.

Now consider the case of a virtual circle or sphere collapsing upon its center point.

The definition of a circle or sphere is the locus of points equidistant from a point in space. In a 3D Cartesian reference system, a sphere is defined by R*2 = x*2 + y*2 + z*2., where R is the radius and x,y,z are the coordinates in space. It should be obvious that if R is 0, then x, y, & z are all 0. So far so good.

But another way of defining a sphere is by the rotation of a circle about an axis. And as we all know, C = 2R x PI, where R is the radius of a rational distance & C is the circumference, or the locus of points around the center point of the circle or sphere.

.
4. CONSISTENCY OF REASONING.

BUT PI IS IRRATIONAL, WHICH MEANS THAT C MUST BE IRRATIONAL, WHICH IN TURN MEANS THE LOCUS OF SOME OF THE POINTS EQUIDISTANT FROM THE CENTER ARE IRRATIONAL, WHILE OTHERS MAY BE RATIONAL. (Note: When z = 0 & x = 4 & y =3,; R = 5, all being rational points.) NOW WHEN R BECOMES ZERO (which we assume initially to be rational), THE IRRATIONAL POINTS WHICH WERE IN THE CIRCUMFERENCE ALL CONVERGE UPON WHAT WAS THE RATIONAL CENTER POINT AND MERGE INTO THAT CENTER POINT, THEREBY FORMING A POINT WHICH IS BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL. THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE THE RADIUS HAS BECOME ZERO, THEN THOSE IRRATIONAL POINTS THAT FORMED THE CIRCUMFERENCE SIMPLY DISAPPEAR. IT IS MORE CONSISTENT TO VIEW THEM AS OVERLAYING THE RATIONAL CENTER POINT AND MERGING WITH THAT CENTER POINT. THIS IN TURN MEANS THAT ZERO MUST BE BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL AT THE SAME TIME, NOT SIMPLY ONE OR THE OTHER. SO WHAT WE HAVE DONE HERE IS TO APPLY THE SUPER POSITION PRINCIPLE. FURTHERMORE, ALL POINTS IN SPACE MUST BE BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL. BUT HOW CAN THIS BE? THE ONLY EXPLANATION IS THAT EACH POINT IN SPACE OSCILLATES BETWEEN THE RATIONAL STATE AND THE IRRATIONAL STATE.

.
5. FURTHER CONJECTURE.

AT THIS POINT WE NOW MUST ASK, "WHAT IS THE NATURE OF THIS OSCILLATION OF A POINT IN SPACE ?". THERE ARE THESE POSSIBILITIES

a. EACH POINT IN SPACE SIMPLY CHANGES ITS "COLOR" FROM RATIONAL TO IRRATIONAL AND BACK AGAIN. IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS SIMPLY REPETITIVELY EXPOSING TWO FACES OF THE SAME COIN.

b. EACH POINT IN SPACE HAS A LITTLE WIGGLE ROOM TO VIBRATE BETWEEN THE RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL, BEING CONSTRAINED BY AN INFINITESIMAL IRRATIONAL DISTANCE.

c. EACH POINT IN SPACE EXPANDS AND CONTRACTS ITS RADIUS BETWEEN RATIONAL 0 AND THE SMALLEST IRRATIONAL DISTANCE, BEING CONSTRAINED BY THE INFINITESIMAL IRRATIONAL DISTANCE.

d. HOWEVER IN OBSERVING PARTICLE-WAVE DUALITY, CURRENT DAY QUANTUM PHYSICS HAS COME TO REGARD THE IDEA THAT A QUANTUM FORCE FIELD CAN BE SOMEWHAT INDEPENDENT OF MATTER AND OCCUPY SPACE WITHOUT IT HAVING A MASS. IT WAS THE PHOTON THAT FIRST GAVE RISE TO THIS IDEA, BECAUSE IT DEMONSTRATES THE PROPERTIES OF BEING A REAL MATERIAL PARTICLE WITH MASS AND
BEING A MASSLESS ENERGY WAVE. THIS IS KNOWN AS PARTICLE-WAVE DUALITY. SUCH BEING THE CASE, IT IS NOT UNTHINKABLE TO ACCEPT THE IDEA THAT OUR SPACIAL POINT COULD OSCILLATE BETWEEN BEING A MASSLESS FIELD AND A REAL PARTICLE HAVING MASS. IN OTHER WORDS, EACH POINT IN SPACE COULD BE WHAT i WOULD CALL A NOW-YOU-SEE-IT/NOW-YOU-DONT PARTICLE, AKA, A "NUCINUD" ENTITY, PROBABLY ALSO KNOW AS THE ELUSIVE GRAVITON PARTICLE.

e. If the preceding does hold water and IF THE OSCILLATIONS OF ALL POINTS ARE IN SYNC WITH EACH OTHER VIA SOME INTERCONNECTING LINKAGE BETWEEN POINTS (LIKE GRAVITY) , then it is reasonable to say that the fabric of all space is comprised of two subspaces, ie, the rational subspace and the irrational subspace. Based on this idea, we might even conjecture that all of space flips back and forth between the two subspaces, thereby creating a motion picture reality. (Note: Refer to the attached Minkowski graph and envision the x-y plane as progressing through time along the time axis in a flip-flop fashion between the rational an irrational.)

However, it may be that the oscillations of all points are asynchronous, ie, not in sync. And if this is true, then the concept of a synchronous and continuous time across all of space is ka-put, as well as the idea of there being any continuity across space-time.

.
6. RECAP - THE "NUCINUD" PARTICLE-POINT.

This writing has theorized the existence of a
NOW-YOU-SEE-IT-NOW-YOU-DONT (aka NUCINUD) PARTICLE-POINT of which all of space is composed.

1)The particle-point is said to oscillate in size from zero to some infinitesimal size. Furthermore, given the current day thinking that treats a massless force field (like a photon) as a real entity, it is conceivable that our nucinud particle-point could oscillate between being a massless force field and being a real particle with mass. This conforms to Einstein and quantum theory recognizing a force field as being independent of matter.

2)The particle-point is the source of gravity (a directional force field) and is enticed by matter to collect inside matter like a bunch of flies being attracted to dead meat. Because of its attraction to other points like itself, it may merge with those other points, thereby increasing the force of its own gravity. And because of its attraction to other particle-points like itself, any motion of the particle-point causes its domain and the domain of neighboring particle- points to be stretched. Furthermore, the particle-point's quantum gravity links it with its adjacent particle-points, thereby providing a linkage between all such particle-points and assuring a synchronous continuity of all space-time.

This conforms to Einstein declaring gravity to be a property of space-time.

3) The particle-point's oscillation period is slowed by the increased presence of its own gravity. This conforms to the observation that gravity slows down time.

4) In addition, there may be a force field that is orthogonal to the gravity force field in a relationship similar to the relationship of electricity to magnetism.

.
7. BLACK HOLES.

From the previous discussion about a collapsing virtual sphere, it should be obvious that this is exactly a description of matter collapsing into a black hole, the only difference being we have now added the presence of matter which exhibits the property of gravity.

If we consider matter to be composed of real rational points in space, then the radius of a black hole must be real, but its circumference, or EVENT HORIZON, must be irrational points in space. Either this or visa versa. No matter, this should give us some insight into the nature of space and matter at the quantum level, where current thought is focused upon multi-dimensionality, particle and string theory.

As a side note black holes having an extremely large mass are known to emit low frequency gravity waves, near sound, when they merge with another black hole. This is not to say that they do not also emit other very high frequency radiation, like gamma and x-rays.

.
.
B. POSTMORTEM.

.
1.. MY APOLOGY.

In association with QUANTUM THEORY, there appears to be a popular belief that there exists the smallest size that anything can exist. Quite obviously, in bringing up and applying IRRATIONAL numbers in my depiction of points in space, I have possibly created a schism about what the very smallest size that a thing can be. And quite obviously, I have diverted from current thinking of there being an absolute smallest particle size to thinking that the very smallest particle can completely disappear to zero size and reappear. In other words, we have a "NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T" , aka NUCINUD, PARTICLE/SPACIAL-POINT. This may conflict with the PLANK CONSTANT idea of there being an absolute smallest size that never goes to zero.

If what I am saying is true, there remains a question as to the exact nature of time. That question is, " Is it not possible that each somewhat autonomous particle/point of space, by virtue of its oscillating size is somehow linked to its neighbors via an oscillating minute wave it produces?". And is it not then possible that the oscillations of all spacial-points be in sync with each other, thus producing the over all effect of time?". "Can each such a spacial point not be the generator of some isotropic radiation?".

.
2. A QUESTION OF UNIFORMITY BETWEEN GRAVITY & ELECTROMAGNETICS.

In electromagnetics, there are two interwoven but distinct forces, ie, electrical and magnetic. Could be there is a companion force orthogonal to gravity yet to be discovered?
Perhaps, time is orthogonal to gravity.

.
3. A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR WHY THE WEAK NUCLEAR FORCE IS HELD IN CHECK BY THE STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE.

If the two forces are orthogonal to each other as with electro-magetics, then it may be that the weak nuclear force whose direction is a push outward is held in by an encircling strong nuclear force.

..
4. REBUTTLEMENTS:

a. POINTS IN SPACE HAVE NO PROPERTIES LIKE RATIONALITY OR IRRATIONALITY. THE DEFINITION OF A STRAIGHT LINE IS THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS, A & B. ONLY DISTANCE AND/OR TIME CAN BE IRRATIONAL.

ANSWER: Assume you have a "straight" line between points A & B, but the distance is "irrational". If the distance is a "straight" line, then you can never get exactly from point A to point B, because you will either fall short of point B or skip over it claiming to hit point B. So obviously something is amiss.

The possible explanation for this is that something diverted your trip very slightly, causing you not to go in a "straight" line as you presumed. What could that be? Either:
1). You "locus" of points took you slightly off course through an intermediate "irrational point,
or
2). Some mysterious force "bent" your path along the way.

Now consider the distance between A & B as shrinking almost to zero, but it is still irrational. Either that irrational intermediate point is still there or that mysterious force is still there. And as we collapse that distance to zero, there is no reason to believe that anything has changed. Thus, the point must take on the properties of what was exterior to it.

CHAPTER 3.
THE BIG BANG.

.
I. CURRENT UNDERSTANDING.

As a result of both scientific and technological advancement over the last century, it has become pretty clear that our universe began with a BIG BANG. Whether it was caused by a collision of some preexisting entities or caused by the immediate appearance out of nowhere of a singularity. ie a "POINT" may be a concern, but it should be obvious that were it a collision of preexisting entities, then the universe must have existed before the collision, which leads one to question how those entities came about. Therefore, the more reasonable viewpoint is to regard it as starting from a singularity, thereby eliminating the endless search for a beginning.

This BIG BANG CREATION THEORY tells us that both space, time and matter were all created immediately 13.8 billion years ago from a singularity that erupted into an explosion, with matter evolving from a super-heated plasma, that turned into the basic particles of the atom as it cooled, that turned into hydrogen and helium atoms, that turned into stars, which in turn created the heavier elements we know of today. It also tells us that light was created which was everywhere all at once and which ultimately turned into microwaves and can be found today as CMB, COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND noise that still travel everywhere in the universe.

.
II. QUESTIONS:

.
A. SOME SCIENTIST ARGUE THAT THE UNIVERSE IS A
"ISOLATED SYSTEM".

The word, "SYSTEM", implies some degree of enclosure, and therefore an entity that can be somewhat described. The word "DESCRIBE" also implies an enclosure since the syllable "SCRIBE" means to circumnavigate or enclose.
To point out the differences in system types, science recognizes 3 kinds of systems:
1. "ISOLATED" where neither energy or matter can escape.
An "isolated" system is one completely enclosed an
sealed off. The 2ND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
pertains to this kind of system. So it may be that some
scientists opt for this type of universe to preserve that
law.
2. "CLOSED" where energy can escape, but not matter.
In other words, there is a small exit.
3. "OPENED" where both energy and matter can escape.
This latter type of system should be self-evident.

At this point let us consider some possible semmetrical enclosures of the universe. We will exclude the unsemmetrical, because they could be like fractals and just too difficult to apply simple math.
So considering only the symmetrical, we have only four possibilities
1. A TETRAHEDRON
2. A CUBE
3. A DODECAHEDRON.
4. A SPHERE.
So which of these would be the most realistic to enclose our universe? Certainly not the first three, because it is most unlikely that our universe would have sharp edges as required by a polyhedron. That leaves us with a sphere.

So let's go back and see if a sphere really is representative of our universe being an isolated system. If the universe is indeed "isolated" and spherical , then there must be a discernable boundary at a rational distance from its center. And if the universe is spherical, then its surface must contain some irrational points as we saw previously in our discussion of a point. This must mean our sphere has holes in it, making it impossible to be an isolated enclosed system.

Of course it can be argued that the universe is not a perfect sphere. But if that is true, then how do you account for what must have been the typical symmetrical radiation pattern of
a shock wave or dispersion of what-ever that is typical of an explosion?

So I would like to know what proof these scientist have of the universe being an isolated system? Have they in fact ventured to the outer boundaries and found all of the doors shut.? Or are they just being lazy, arrogant and closed minded?

Of course, isolation of variables is essential to understanding the cause and effect of things. But to claim that the Universe is always an isolated entity is beyond all reason. There is no such thing as always or never. Gates open and gates close, and we know not when, where, and/or by what means or who.

.
B. WHAT THIS, NO CENTER TO THE UNIVERSE?

Scientists are telling us per Google,
"There is no centre of the universe! According to the standard theories of cosmology, the universe started with a "Big Bang" about 14 thousand million years ago and has been expanding ever since. Yet there is no centre to the expansion; it is the same everywhere."

Apparently scientists do not consider the original spot where the Big Bang started as part of the universe. This could only mean that the universe is sandwiched in between two concentric spheres, assuming a symmetrical explosion. If the explosion was non-semmetrical, then the universe would still be sandwiched in between an outer layer and an inner layer, assuming the point of the explosion was surrounded by all the debris which is not unreasonable. But then again, one might conjecture the universe as being a smoke ring blown through a tiny hole. One could almost imagine God smoking a pipe and blowing a smoke ring. He may be even blowing more than one smoke ring, thereby creating multi-verses No matter, there must be a center point of origin and regardless of whether or not scientist include it as part of the universe.

.
C. LOOKING INTO THE DISTANT PAST.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WE ARE LOOKING FARTHER BACK INTO TIME AS WE PEER DEEPER INTO SPACE?

We must begin with the fact that there is nothing that can travel faster than light. And because of the vast distances between galaxies, it can take millions of light years for the light from a far distant galaxy to reach our galaxy. This means that an immense amount of time has past by the time we see the light, which means we are looking at history.

With the advent of space travel, our imaginations can go wild with the idea of visiting distant galaxies. Yet science tells us that the deeper we peer into space, then the farther back in time we go. But to be more precise, the deeper we look into space, we see light (or electromagnetic radiation) emitted long, long ago. So this raises the question, "If what we are seeing now actually occurred millions of years ago, then how do we know those objects are still there?" If in truth they are not presently there, then is there really any point in trying to converse with them, let alone attempt to travel to them? This not to say we should not even bother to be aware and study these past events. But they need to be recognized as historical events long past that should not necessarily effect our current day presence.

For an observer to say, "I just saw new stars being born" is not necessarily correct. It is more honest to say "I have seen stars that were born x years ago". To him I would say "If you are going to travel to some distant star, don't be surprised if it is gone before you get there.

Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe appears to be expanding due to the "Doppler Red Shift" he observed of light coming from very distant stars.. From that we have concluded that the more distant starts are "accelerating" away, leading us to theorize that the universe is expanding as a whole attributed to the existence 'dark energy".

But there is something troubling about this. WHAT IS THE POINT THEY ARE EXPANDING FROM? WHERE IS THE CENTER POINT OF THE EXPLOSION? CAN WE NOT SEE LIGHT FROM DISTANT GALAXIES DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM US ON THE OTHER SIDE? WHAT IF THOSE MORE DISTANT STARS ARE NOT RECEDING AWAY FROM US LINEARLY, BUT ARE ACTUALLY CIRCULATING AROUND THE EDGES OF THE UNIVERSE?" IT WOULD STILL BE POSSIBLE TO OBSERVE A RED SHIFT AT THE RIGHT TIMES RELATIVE TO THE POSITION OF THE EARTH? These very simple questions remain to be answered by science, not some arbitrary statements of there being no center or that the universe is an isolated system. If you don't know, then say you don't know.

3. REFERENCE SYSTEMS RESTRICTION..
A reference system within the rational sub-space cannot be used to measure distances to points within the irrational sub-space, and visa versa. The ability to measure distance is restricted to the sub-space in which the measurement is being made.

4. The role of "TIME"
It may be that "time" is the resolving factor between rational space and irrational space. Therefore, it makes sense to speak of "space-time" as one complete entity.

E. IS THE VANISHING POINT ONE OR MANY?

Certainly someone has already considered this question, but just in case, I bring it up now.

Suppose two people are standing at opposite poles of the earth, each looking straight up. The question is;
"ARE THEY LOOKING AT DIFFERENT POINTS IN SPACE OR THE SAME ONE?'. This may sound like a stupid question, but it does deserve an answer, because we do know now that light does bend. If they are in fact the same point in space, then as we gaze into the heavens to the farthest light source from no matter where, are we not starring at the original single point of the Big Bang? And if true, then the universe is a CLOSED SYSTEM that happens to be expanding at the moment, possibly causing the effect of time.

Here are some observations.
As has been known for many centuries in art, as you look at something from an increasing distances, the smaller it becomes until it completely vanishes into a single point. Imagine a perfect cross whose limbs are the same length,d. The farther away you move from it (say distance D), the shorter the limb lengths appear. It would almost seem as if there is an inversely proportional relationship between D & d, whereby D x d = Constant K. This observation seems to hold true no matter in what direction you are looking. However, If we now take a larger cross whose limbs are of length s, we now have to be at a farther distance, S, from it before it vanishes. And where S x s = Constant C, it does not follow that Constant C = Constant K unless there is some other mitigating factor, like time, to produce some fixed universal constant X. Perhaps something like X = K/T(d) = C/T(s), where T(d) might be the time it takes light to travel the distance D & T(s) is the time for light to travel the distance S. But this is just mere conjecture.

Here is another view on the vanishing point which could contradict the idea of it being a single point. Instead of a cross made of wood, imagine the cross is made of two strings. You grab one of the strings at the center and begin to pull. The ends of the string are not secured, but have heavy weights on
them so they can reluctantly move. As you pull, the string beings to bend, and the two ends come closer together. If you pull long enough, the two ends will come together as if they were one.

In this analogy, the string you are pulling on is actually the separate light beams of each point along the lateral length of the string (or coss). And the light beams from each end of the string converge into one before those other light beams emitted from the points closer to the center of the string. In other words, the light being emitted from the cross is bending to the vanishing point where all visibility of the cross is gone.

Of course, this too is conjecture, but it does destroy the prior view. And it further falls in line with the idea that it takes a longer time for the light from the ends of the cross to reach your eye than the light from the center of the cross.

WHAT IS THE "WRONG TRUTH"?

The wrong truth is telling others personal things about yourself about yourself that they do not want to hear. It is too much information that is disrespectful. If you want to confess such a thing about yourself, then tell it to Jesus Christ in private. Of course there are limits if the behavior you are confessing has injured another person.

The wrong truth is extending accusations of wrong doing to and name calling of innocent people and perpetuating conflict...

The wrong truth is telling half truths to hide your own hypocrisies.

Lou Penrose, radio talk show on San Diego KOGO , makes a very important attitudinal observation. He notes there are people who don't believe the Trump economic boom has done anything for them, because they have not seen any change in wages. Penrose correctly posits that whether or not a person sees any increase in their own wages, there are unacknowledged benefits in terms of an improved environment. EXCELLENT POINT! AT LEAST HAVE THE HOPE FOR YOUR OWN FUTURE REALIZING THAT THE BLESSINGS BEFALLING YOUR NEIGHBORS CAN FALL UPON YOU. IT IS FAR BETTER THAN LOOKING AT A HOPELESS "BAH HUMBUG" BLANK PAGE.

The Dualities Of The Universe And The Super Bowl Make The Appearance Of Hypocrisies Unavoidable.

The universe is full of contradictions. Is the universe an isolated system or an opened system? Is a photon a particle or wave? Is spacetime really a fabric or is it just nothingness? Did the universe have a creator or did it just happen "because it needed to happen"? The answers to these questions appears to be "both". Certainly the scientist priest, Georges Lamaitre, who was one of the first to suggest the Big Bang, saw these dualities.

On a more religious level, we can ask:
Does the Bible not appear to be self contradictory? Is there really a God who appears to be absent? If not, then from where does our morality come? But C S Lewis has already answered many of these questions. So If so, then does God's love mean we must forgive murderers despite His commandments? Can love exist without justice? Or is there a limit as suggested by theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer in saying, "Better to do evil than be evil", as he joined in the effort to asssinate Hitler?

On a more carnal human level we can ask:
Is it untruthful to hide our bodies and desires from the public? Should I not confess my sexual preferences to the rest of the world whether they like it or not? Does freedom not give me the right to do whatever I want in expressing myself. Do I not have the right to migrate into any country I want without getting government approval. Or is there good reason to be more conservative and respectful in our behaviour?

Coming from the generation of the sexual revolution, it is easy to see where us older folk might be seen as hypocritical in criticizing this last Sunday's Super Bowl half time performance. But through experience, many of us older folk find good reason to diminish the amount of explicit public indecency such as that demonstrated in the half time act, and if for no other reason than to respect the senses of others. Too much information is as offensive as too much body odor. Too much sex in movies is insulting to the intelligence. It is as bad as urinating in the streets or worse. We know what you've got. There is no need to put it in our face. So please, clean up your act.

And when it comes to hypocrisy, lets try to minimize it. There is already enough of it in today's politics. How do you explain supporting the cries of the ME TOO complaints, while at rhe same time going over the top in objectifying the sexuality of women? As Michael Cain's mother once exclaimed, "If it is not for sale, then don't put it in the window".
FROM THE VERY SMALL TO THE BIG BANG.

INTRODUCTION.

This is a pure mathematical viewpoint and reasoning in an attempt to better understand what science has been telling us today about cosmology and quantum theory. The first chapter deals with the very small, ie, quantum theory, space and apparent nothingness.The second chapter deals with the very large, ie, the BIG BANG . Both are seen as contracting and expanding spheres, the commonality being found in the concept of a virtual singularity, ie, a "point". Chapter 3 is called "Conventional Wisdom Verses Suspicions" wherein I point out my possible deviations from current day thinking.

.
CHAPTER 1.
THE FABRIC OF SPACE, BLACK HOLES, AND THE ESSENCE OF TIME

.
I. PERCEPTION.

.
A. TIME AND SPACE.

What does it mean when we say that time passes by faster or more slowly? What are we really saying?
We are talking about the "rate", T(r), at which time passes, which can also be thought of as a "frequency" similar to electromagnetic radiation. In this analogy, do not confuse long wave length, L, with higher frequency. Longer wave length means slower time rate or frequency which means the slower time passes. The greater the rate (or frequency) of time tics, the faster time passes, and visa versa. A more visual way to see it, imagine a timeline with the tics of a clock separating equal segments, L, of time. The slower time flows, the longer each time segment, L, will be, meaning the rate, T(r), will be less. The exact equation relating frequency to wave length is

L x T(r) = C, the constant speed of light

Now you ask, "How can we talk about the "fabric" of space when there is nothing there?". It was Einstein who first proclaimed that space and gravity interact, claiming that gravity warps space. Now I accept this idea, although it could be that space shapes gravity. No matter, it seems obvious from this that there is something in space we cannot see, and therefore we can speak of space as if it were a "fabric" or maybe even a fluid.

.
B. GIVEN:

1. TO BEGIN, LET'S TALK ABOUT ZERO.
An irrational number is one which has no ending or repeating pattern after the decimal point. An irrational multiplied by an irrational number may or may not yield a rational number. But an irrational number multiplied by any rational number yields another irrational number, EXCEPT FOR "0" WHICH IS DEFINED TO BE A RATIONAL INTEGER. So quite obviously we have an exception that creates a contradiction when it comes to the number zero.

2. FURTHER INVESTIGATION, COLLAPSING SPHERES.

Now consider the case of a virtual circle or sphere collapsing upon its center point.

The definition of a circle or sphere is the locus of points equidistant from a point in space. In a 3D Cartesian reference system, a sphere is defined by R*2 = x*2 + y*2 + z*2., where R is the radius and x,y,z are the coordinates in space. It should be obvious that if R is 0, then x, y, & z are all 0. So far so good.

But another way of defining a sphere is by the rotation of a circle about an axis. And as we all know, C = 2R x PI, where R is the radius of a rational distance & C is the circumference, or the locus of points around the center point of the circle or sphere.

.
C. CONSISTENCY OF REASONING.

BUT PI IS IRRATIONAL, WHICH MEANS THAT C MUST BE IRRATIONAL, WHICH IN TURN MEANS THE LOCUS OF SOME OF THE POINTS EQUIDISTANT FROM THE CENTER ARE IRRATIONAL, WHILE OTHERS MAY BE RATIONAL. (Note: When z = 0 & x = 4 & y =3,; R = 5, all being rational points.) NOW WHEN R BECOMES ZERO (which we assume initially to be rational), THE IRRATIONAL POINTS WHICH WERE IN THE CIRCUMFERENCE ALL CONVERGE UPON WHAT WAS THE RATIONAL CENTER POINT AND MERGE INTO THAT CENTER POINT, THEREBY FORMING A POINT WHICH IS BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL. THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE THE RADIUS HAS BECOME ZERO, THEN THOSE IRRATIONAL POINTS THAT FORMED THE CIRCUMFERENCE SIMPLY DISAPPEAR. IT IS MORE CONSISTENT TO VIEW THEM AS OVERLAYING THE RATIONAL CENTER POINT AND MERGING WITH THAT CENTER POINT. THIS IN TURN MEANS THAT ZERO MUST BE BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL AT THE SAME TIME, NOT SIMPLY ONE OR THE OTHER. FURTHERMORE, ALL POINTS IN SPACE MUST BE BOTH RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL. BUT HOW CAN THIS BE? THE ONLY EXPLANATION IS THAT EACH POINT IN SPACE OSCILLATES BETWEEN THE RATIONAL STATE AND THE IRRATIONAL STATE.

.
D. THE DUAL NATURE OF LIGHT.

At this point let me comment upon light and its wave-particle duality nature, because this is where quantum theory begins.
For centuries, scientist have at some times considered light to be a particle called a photon, while at other times considered it to be an electromagnetic wave. Newton and Huygens in the 17th century were among the first to really study light. Newton supported the particle idea and Huygens supported the wave idea. Then early in the 19th century, Young demonstrated his Double Slit experiment that emphasized the wave idea. Others continued like Michelson/Morley, with Einstein and others following up to give us quantum theory.
What has since evolved is a very complicated picture of the photon being both a particle and a wave. This being the case, let me try to draw a simple strait forward analogy of this duality.

Envision a wheel of your car. This is representative of a photon.. Now imagine a huge polarized bar magnet stuck perfectly to the wheel from edge of it , through the center, and to the other edge of the wheel. Now before you begin to drive it, assume the car is up on blocks lifting the wheels off the ground. You now start it, engage the wheels, step on the gas an observe the revolutions per minute. The rate at which the wheel spins is the SPIN FREQUENCY. Now you lower the car to the ground and begin to drive it at the same revolutions per minute as before .

At this point, we now ask 'WHAT IS THE GEOMETRY OF THE MOTION OF THE NORTH POLE OF THE MAGNET RELATIVE TO THE CENTER OF THE WHEEL WHICH IS MOVING LONGITUDINALLY? THE ANSWER IS "A SIGN WAVE" WHICH HAS A WAVE LENGTH EQUAL TO THE CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE WHEEL AND A FREQUENCY BASED UPON HOW FAST YOU DRIVE THE CAR. THIS MOTION OF THE MAGNET CAUSES AN OSCILLATING ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD TO BE CREATED. THUS, WE HAVE JUST SIMULATED THE PROPERTIES OF A PHOTON AS IT MOVES THROUGH SPACE. SO A PARTICLE AND A WAVE CAN IN FACT EXIST AT THE SAME TIME.

To elaborate a little more the radius of the wheel is R, a rational number. The circumference of the wheel is C, an irrational number and which happens to be the distance traveled along the sinusoidal path by the north pole of the magnet.. The amplitude of the sinusoidal path is R as measured from the center of the wheel., And the linear wavelength of the sinusoidal path from peak to peak corresponds to the longitudinal motion of the wheel, and is 4R. FROM THIS, WE CAN CONCLUDE THAT THE LONGITUDINAL DISTANCE TRAVELED BY A WAVE IS RATIONAL, BUT ITS SINUSOIDAL WAVE DISTANCE IS IRRATIONAL.

Going a little further, let's look at what the SPIN FREQUENCY looks like to an observer standing still in front of your direction of longitudinal motion. To such an observer, the fact of your velocity towards him compresses the spin frequency, making it appear greater in occurrence. In other words, the spin frequency is higher. This is called Doppler Shifting

Now this analogy may not cover all of the intricacies .of light, especially Huygens view that light appears to replicate and distribute itself at every point in space. Although he does not support the particle view, his theory seems to be liken to a cue ball hitting a racked up set of balls on a pool table.

.
E. FURTHER CONJECTURE.

RETURNING TO OUR ORIGINAL DISCUSSION AND PICKING UP FROM SECTION C, WE NOW MUST ASK, "WHAT IS THE NATURE OF THIS OSCILLATION OF A POINT IN SPACE ?". THERE ARE THESE POSSIBILITIES

1. EACH POINT IN SPACE SIMPLY CHANGES ITS "COLOR" FROM RATIONAL TO IRRATIONAL AND BACK AGAIN. IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS SIMPLY REPETITIVELY EXPOSING TWO FACES OF THE SAME COIN.

2. EACH POINT IN SPACE HAS A LITTLE WIGGLE ROOM TO VIBRATE BETWEEN THE RATIONAL AND IRRATIONAL, BEING CONSTRAINED BY AN INFINITESIMAL IRRATIONAL DISTANCE.

3. EACH POINT IN SPACE EXPANDS AND CONTRACTS ITS RADIUS BETWEEN RATIONAL 0 AND THE SMALLEST IRRATIONAL DISTANCE, BEING CONSTRAINED BY THE INFINITESIMAL IRRATIONAL DISTANCE.

4. HOWEVER IN OBSERVING PARTICLE-WAVE DUALITY, CURRENT DAY QUANTUM PHYSICS HAS COME TO REGARD THE IDEA THAT A QUANTUM FORCE FIELD CAN BE SOMEWHAT INDEPENDENT OF MATTER AND OCCUPY SPACE WITHOUT IT HAVING A MASS. IT WAS THE PHOTON THAT FIRST GAVE RISE TO THIS IDEA, BECAUSE IT DEMONSTRATES THE PROPERTIES OF BEING A REAL MATERIAL PARTICLE WITH MASS AND
BEING A MASSLESS ENERGY WAVE. THIS IS KNOWN AS PARTICLE-WAVE DUALITY. SUCH BEING THE CASE, IT IS NOT UNTHINKABLE TO ACCEPT THE IDEA THAT OUR SPACIAL POINT COULD OSCILLATE BETWEEN BEING A MASSLESS FIELD AND A REAL PARTICLE HAVING MASS. IN OTHER WORDS, EACH POINT IN SPACE COULD BE WHAT i WOULD CALL A NOW-YOU-SEE-IT/NOW-YOU-DONT PARTICLE, AKA, A "NUCINUD" ENTITY, PROBABLY ALSO KNOW AS THE ELUSIVE GRAVITON PARTICLE.

5. If the preceding does hold water and IF THE OSCILLATIONS OF ALL POINTS ARE IN SYNC WITH EACH OTHER VIA SOME INTERCONNECTING LINKAGE BETWEEN POINTS (LIKE GRAVITY) , then it is reasonable to say that the fabric of all space is comprised of two subspaces, ie, the rational subspace and the irrational subspace. Based on this idea, we might even conjecture that all of space flips back and forth between the two subspaces, thereby creating a motion picture reality. (Note: Refer to the attached Minkowski graph and envision the x-y plane as progressing through time along the time axis in a flip-flop fashion between the rational an irrational.)

However, it may be that the oscillations of all points are asynchronous, ie, not in sync. And if this is true, then the concept of a synchronous and continuous time across all of space is ka-put, as well as the idea of there being any continuity across space-time.
.
.
.
II. CATCHING UP WITH EINSTEIN.

Einstein first came out with his SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY which dealt with two reference systems in motion at a constant speed relative to each other. He subsequently came out with his theory of GENERAL RELATIVITY which dealt with two reference systems in variable motions relative to each other, meaning they accelerated and or decelerated relative to each other, which in turn brought into play the consideration of gravity.

.
F. The IMPACT OF VELOCITY, V, UPON TIME.

Einstein, in his first studies of light, proclaimed that, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE SLOWER THE RATE OF TIME AND VISA VERSA. So here we see VELOCITY, V, aka SPEED BASED UPON TIME AND DISTANCE, changing the rate at which time passes.. In other words, the greater the speed, V, the less the rate at which time, T(r), passes and visa versa. It would seem as if V & T(r) are inversely proportional to some extent & can be expressed mathematically as:

V x T(r) = K (a fixed constant.)

But T(r) = C / L, where
C = the speed of light
L = the wave length of time,
ie, the distance between tics of the clock.

Therefore, V / L = K / C

In addition to this, Einstein went on to say, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE MORE MASS HE GAINS.". We will remember this when we get to gravity.

.
G. THE INCLUSION OF TIME AS A DIMENSION & ITS GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION.

In his Special Theory Of Relativity, Einstein addressed the relativistic issues of pure motion and time, the result being his recognition of time as a 4th dimension. But apparently he was somewhat remiss in his depicting graphical reference system of how space and time could could be represented. He relied upon another mathematician, Minkowski. One of the pictures attached here is that of Minkowski's graphical concept of space-time which most physicists agree upon. Part of the trick in understanding it is to realize that distance can be represented as time ASSUMING THE SPEED OF LIGHT IS THE UNIT OF MEASURE ALONG THE TIME AXIS. So there is very little difference from the old 3-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system in that regard. But in addition Minkowski added what is called a LIGHT CONE. Now I do not pretend to know what this light-cone purports to represent, but my best guess is that it is representative of the dispersion of light over time. But do not bet on it.

Speaking of reference systems, Einstein played with Non-Euclidian reference systems, envisioning manifolds and Gaussian Field representations. He did so making a distinction between an INERTIAL REFERENCE SYSTEM wherein the reference system is considered to be at absolute rest as opposed to a separate NON-INERTIAL REFERENCE SYSTEM which is moving with respect to an inertial reference system. This is so, because every person has their own unique frame of reference that move with respect to others.

Anyway let's move onward to the more interesting concepts of gravity which Einstein incorporated in his General Theory Of Relativity.

.
H. BLACK HOLES.

From the previous discussion about a collapsing virtual sphere, it should be obvious that this is exactly a description of matter collapsing into a black hole, the only difference being we have now added the presence of matter which exhibits the property of gravity.

If we consider matter to be composed of real rational points in space, then the radius of a black hole must be real, but its circumference, or EVENT HORIZON, must be irrational points in space. Either this or visa versa. No matter, this should give us some insight into the nature of space and matter at the quantum level, where current thought is focused upon multi-dimensionality, particle and string theory.

.
First, it is said that gravity travels at the speed of light, no slower and no faster. Secondly, in addition to gravity impacting the shape of space, it has also been proven that gravity has its effects upon time. The closer one is to the source of gravity, THE SLOWER TIME PASSES by. The farther away you are from the center of gravity, THE FASTER TIME PASSES.

It would seem as if G & T(r) are inversely proportional to some extent. In other words, the greater the gravity, the less the rate at which time passes and visa versa. This might be represented by the equation. Thus, we might expand our previous equation to include gravity expressed as

V x G x T(r) = K (a fixed constant.)
or
(V x G) / L = K / C

Remembering Einstein said, "THE FASTER ONE TRAVELS, THE MORE MASS HE GAINS.", we can speculate that it may not be the increase of velocity that slows time directly. It may be that the increase in mass resulting from higher speed produces increased gravity that actually slows time. In this case we could simply omit V from our equation. But for now we will leave it in.

Now this equation may or may not be true, but it does help to understand the inverse relationships between TIME, GRAVITY, and SPEED. We know that G, gravity, is relative to mass. We know that V, velocity is relative to the distance between points in space and time. But we still do not know what the variable TIME is relative to.

.
J. MORE ABOUT GRAVITY "WARPING" SPACE.

Well before Einstein, it was Newton who first introduced the idea that two separate pieces of matter attracted each other via a direct force which he could compute. But when Einstein came along, the picture was changed from a direct force to an indirect force whereby spacetime served as an intermediary. Two pieces of matter in close proximity would come together as a result of their separate respective stretching or squeezing of spacetime and not as the result of a direct force between them.

Einstein finally came up with his equation of General Relativity,
G(uv)=(8pi G/C****)T(uv).

Where: G = Newtons Gravitational Constant
C = The Speed Of Light
pi = the usual irrational constant.
T(uv) = an energy-momentum tensor.
This involves mass, M, & velocity, V.
G(uv) = a curvature tensor.
This includes TIME ..
God only knows what this is,
but let me try to explain as I have heard.

The left side, G(uv), says that space-time is shaped by the right side which represents the distribution of matter. In other words, space-time is malleable, not some unknown infinity.

This may be all fine and dandy, but we need to know, "What is a tensor"?". In mathematics, a tensor is an algebraic object that describes a linear mapping from one set of algebraic objects to another. Objects that tensors may map between include, but are not limited to, vectors and scalars, and, recursively, even other tensors. Tensors are inherently related to vector spaces and their dual spaces, and can take several different forms – for example: a scalar, a vector, a dual vector at a point, or a multi-linear map between vector spaces. Euclidean vectors and scalars (which are often used in elementary physics and engineering applications where general relativity is irrelevant) are the simplest tensors.[1] While tensors are defined independent of any basis, the literature on physics often refers to them by their components in a basis related to a particular coordinate system. The third picture shown here is a diagram of a curvature tensor, but please do not ask me to explain it.

Even given all of this information, how in the world are we suppose to visualize it all.

Einstein said that gravity "warps" space-time. The 2nd attached picture is what has traditionally been known as the trampoline example which is really pathetic. It is suppose to illustrate how a piece of material like earth causes a "gravity well" distortion in spacetime into which another piece of material (not shown) can fall. But this is really a mickey-mouse example, because it still relies upon there being a gravity force to pull the second piece of material down into its web. In addition to that, one might view this picture as the earth pushing spacetime away.

So just exactly what Einstein meant by "warping" space time is totally unclear. Did he mean to imply a pushing away force or a pulling force, because certainly it must be one of the two. Given the discovery of black holes, which Einstein initially uncovered, he must have meant "warping" as the result of a pulling force. But Einstein went a little further and claimed that gravity was a property of space-time. If this is the case, then it must be that every spacial point must be the source of a quantum gravity force, wherein matter enhances the attraction of spacial points like a piece of meat attracting flies.

At this point, I would like to compare Einstein's equation to what we previously came up with, ie, (V x G) / L = K / C.
Restating the equation, we have L x K / C = V x G.
So now we can see the commonality between our equation and Einstein's equation on both the left and ride sides. We don't really care about what our arbitrary K / C is. All that counts is that the pertinent factors of time gravity and velocity are correct in their relationship to each other. And of course, Einstein's equation is more complete and correct.

.
.
III. POSTMORTEM.

.
K. MY APOLOGY.
I should mention that the word "QUANTUM" means a distinct unit that can be represented as an "INTERGER" which is not irrational. I see no conflict here, because "QUANTUM" refers to a discrete packet or collection of things, like photons. it also pertains to discrete energy levels THAT DO NOT INCLUDE UNSTABLE IRRATIONAL DISTANCES OF ELECTRONS FROM THE NUCLEUS OF THE ATOM..

But in association with QUANTUM THEORY, there appears to be a popular belief that there exists the smallest size that anything can exist. Quite obviously, in bringing up and applying IRRATIONAL numbers in my depiction of points in space, I have possibly created a schism about what the very smallest size that a thing can be. And quite obviously, I have diverted from current thinking of there being an absolute smallest particle size to thinking that the very smallest particle can completely disappear to zero size and reappear. In other words, we have a "NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T" , aka NUCINUD, PARTICLE/SPACIAL-POINT. This may conflict with the PLANK CONSTANT idea of there being an absolute smallest size that never goes to zero.

If what I am saying is true, there remains a question as to the exact nature of time. That question is, " Is it not possible that each somewhat autonomous particle/point of space, by virtue of its oscillating size is somehow linked to its neighbors via an oscillating minute wave it produces?". And is it not then possible that the oscillations of all spacial-points be in sync with each other, thus producing the over all effect of time?". "Can each such a spacial point not be the generator of some isotropic radiation?".

.
L. IS PLANKS CONSTANT THE SMALLEST LENGTH?
It is said that the smallest length of distance is PLANKS CONSTANT which is 6.62 x 10**(-34) and that nothing can exists that is smaller than this. MAX PLANK uncovered by experiment his famous equation E = hf, where E is energy, f is frequency and h is his constant. If we substitute MC**(2) for energy and C/£ for frequency, where
M is mass, C is the speed of light, & £ is wave length, then we can come up with
M£ = 2/3 x 10**(-26).
What is important here is that mass and wave length are inversely proportional to each other.
THEREFORE, IF A POINT IN SPACE HAS NO MASS, THEN ITS WAVELENGTH IS AN INFINITE STRAIGHT LINE WHOSE FREQUENCY IS C/infinity, AKA ZERO.

As a side note black holes having an extremely large mass are known to emit low frequency
gravity waves, near sound, when they merge with another black hole. This is not to say that they do not also emit other very high frequency radiation, like gamma and x-rays.

So what is the reasoning behind saying that nothing can be smaller than PLANKS CONSTANT? Is this seemingly just another arbitrary restriction similar to saying that 0 must only be rational, and not irrational?

.
M. A QUESTION OF UNIFORMITY BETWEEN GRAVITY & ELECTROMAGNETICS.

In electromagnetics, there are two interwoven but distinct forces, ie, electrical and magnetic. Could be there is a companion force orthogonal to gravity yet to be discovered?
Perhaps, time is orthogonal to gravity.

.
N. A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR WHY THE WEAK NUCLEAR FORCE IS HELD IN CHECK BY THE STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE.

If the two forces are orthogonal to each other as with electro-magetics, then it may be that the weak nuclear force whose direction is a push outward is held in by an encircling strong nuclear force.

.
X. RECAP - THE "NUCINUD" PARTICLE-POINT.

This writing has theorized the existence of a
NOW-YOU-SEE-IT-NOW-YOU-DONT (aka NUCINUD) PARTICLE-POINT of which all of space is composed.

1)The particle-point is said to oscillate in size from zero to some infinitesimal size. Furthermore, given the current day thinking that treats a massless force field (like a photon) as a real entity, it is conceivable that our nucinud particle-point could oscillate between being a massless force field and being a real particle with mass. This conforms to Einstein and quantum theory recognizing a force field as being independent of matter.

2)The particle-point is the source of gravity (a directional force field) and is enticed by matter to collect inside matter like a bunch of flies being attracted to dead meat. Because of its attraction to other points like itself, it may merge with those other points, thereby increasing the force of its own gravity. And because of its attraction to other particle-points like itself, any motion of the particle-point causes its domain and the domain of neighboring particle- points to be stretched. Furthermore, the particle-point's quantum gravity links it with its adjacent particle-points, thereby providing a linkage between all such particle-points and assuring a synchronous continuity of all space-time.

This conforms to Einstein declaring gravity to be a property of space-time.

3) The particle-point's oscillation period is slowed by the increased presence of its own gravity. This conforms to the observation that gravity slows down time.

4) In addition, there may be a force field that is orthogonal to the gravity force field in a relationship similar to the relationship of electricity to magnetism.

.
Y. CAN A FORCE FIELD EXIST WITHOUT MATTER?

I conclude with this question and a possible answer. Like so many subjects of study we begin to answer one question only to find more questions. My dad used to say "The more you know, the more you dont know."

Returning to the question, it would seem the answer is both yes and no. It depends upon how deeply and broadly you look at it. Einstein's study of the photon, along with others, brought about the theories of quantum physics which is the study of the very small. If we segment all of space into tiny entities, as I have done here, then it is not unreasonable to think of these entities as being links in a chain that can extend for long distances. That each link could be a force field without matter is not unthinkable, which makes the answer "yes", a force field can exist without matter. But in a much broader sense, the chain must have end points secured by matter, which makes the answer "no".

With this view, it is not impossible to see how waves can be propagated through the links of the chain over the chains length by tyng down one end and shaking the other. Even children can see this in playing jump rope.

..
Z. REBUTTLEMENTS:

1. POINTS IN SPACE HAVE NO PROPERTIES LIKE RATIONALITY OR IRRATIONALITY. THE DEFINITION OF A STRAIGHT LINE IS THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS, A & B. ONLY DISTANCE AND/OR TIME CAN BE IRRATIONAL.

ANSWER: Assume you have a "straight" line between points A & B, but the distance is "irrational". If the distance is a "straight" line, then you can never get exactly from point A to point B, because you will either fall short of point B or skip over it claiming to hit point B. So obviously something is amiss.

The possible explanation for this is that something diverted your trip very slightly, causing you not to go in a "straight" line as you presumed. What could that be? Either:
a. You "locus" of points took you slightly off course through an intermediate "irrational point,
or
b. Some mysterious force "bent" your path along the way.

Now consider the distance between A & B as shrinking almost to zero, but it is still irrational. Either that irrational intermediate point is still there or that mysterious force is still there. And as we collapse that distance to zero, there is no reason to believe that anything has changed. Thus, the point must take on the properties of what was exterior to it.

CHAPTER 2.
THE BIG BANG.

.
I. CURRENT UNDERSTANDING.

As a result of both scientific and technological advancement over the last century, it has become pretty clear that our universe began with a BIG BANG. Whether it was caused by a collision of some preexisting entities or caused by the immediate appearance out of nowhere of a singularity. ie a "POINT" may be a concern, but it should be obvious that were it a collision of preexisting entities, then the universe must have existed before the collision, which leads one to question how those entities came about. Therefore, the more reasonable viewpoint is to regard it as starting from a singularity, thereby eliminating the endless search for a beginning.

This BIG BANG CREATION THEORY tells us that both space, time and matter were all created immediately 13.8 billion years ago from a singularity that erupted into an explosion, with matter evolving from a super-heated plasma, that turned into the basic particles of the atom as it cooled, that turned into hydrogen and helium atoms, that turned into stars, which in turn created the heavier elements we know of today. It also tells us that light was created which was everywhere all at once and which ultimately turned into microwaves and can be found today as CMB, COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND noise that still travel everywhere in the universe.

.
II. QUESTIONS:

.
A. SOME SCIENTIST ARGUE THAT THE UNIVERSE IS A
"ISOLATED SYSTEM".

The word, "SYSTEM", implies some degree of enclosure, and therefore an entity that can be somewhat described. The word "DESCRIBE" also implies an enclosure since the syllable "SCRIBE" means to circumnavigate or enclose.
To point out the differences in system types, science recognizes 3 kinds of systems:
1. "ISOLATED" where neither energy or matter can escape.
An "isolated" system is one completely enclosed an
sealed off. The 2ND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
pertains to this kind of system. So it may be that some
scientists opt for this type of universe to preserve that
law.
2. "CLOSED" where energy can escape, but not matter.
In other words, there is a small exit.
3. "OPENED" where both energy and matter can escape.
This latter type of system should be self-evident.

At this point let us consider some possible semmetrical enclosures of the universe. We will exclude the unsemmetrical, because they could be like fractals and just too difficult to apply simple math.
So considering only the symmetrical, we have only four possibilities
1. A TETRAHEDRON
2. A CUBE
3. A DODECAHEDRON.
4. A SPHERE.
So which of these would be the most realistic to enclose our universe? Certainly not the first three, because it is most unlikely that our universe would have sharp edges as required by a polyhedron. That leaves us with a sphere.

So let's go back and see if a sphere really is representative of our universe being an isolated system. If the universe is indeed "isolated" and spherical , then there must be a discernable boundary at a rational distance from its center. And if the universe is spherical, then its surface must contain some irrational points as we saw previously in our discussion of a point. This must mean our sphere has holes in it, making it impossible to be an isolated enclosed system.

Of course it can be argued that the universe is not a perfect sphere. But if that is true, then how do you account for what must have been the typical symmetrical radiation pattern of
a shock wave or dispersion of what-ever that is typical of an explosion?

So I would like to know what proof these scientist have of the universe being an isolated system? Have they in fact ventured to the outer boundaries and found all of the doors shut.? Or are they just being lazy, arrogant and closed minded?

Of course, isolation of variables is essential to understanding the cause and effect of things. But to claim that the Universe is always an isolated entity is beyond all reason. There is no such thing as always or never. Gates open and gates close, and we know not when, where, and/or by what means or who.

.
B. WHAT THIS, NO CENTER TO THE UNIVERSE?

Scientists are telling us per Google,
"There is no centre of the universe! According to the standard theories of cosmology, the universe started with a "Big Bang" about 14 thousand million years ago and has been expanding ever since. Yet there is no centre to the expansion; it is the same everywhere."

Apparently scientists do not consider the original spot where the Big Bang started as part of the universe. This could only mean that the universe is sandwiched in between two concentric spheres, assuming a symmetrical explosion. If the explosion was non-semmetrical, then the universe would still be sandwiched in between an outer layer and an inner layer, assuming the point of the explosion was surrounded by all the debris which is not unreasonable. But then again, one might conjecture the universe as being a smoke ring blown through a tiny hole. One could almost imagine God smoking a pipe and blowing a smoke ring. He may be even blowing more than one smoke ring, thereby creating multi-verses No matter, there must be a center point of origin and regardless of whether or not scientist include it as part of the universe.

.
C. LOOKING INTO THE DISTANT PAST.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WE ARE LOOKING FARTHER BACK INTO TIME AS WE PEER DEEPER INTO SPACE?

We must begin with the fact that there is nothing that can travel faster than light. And because of the vast distances between galaxies, it can take millions of light years for the light from a far distant galaxy to reach our galaxy. This means that an immense amount of time has past by the time we see the light, which means we are looking at history.

With the advent of space travel, our imaginations can go wild with the idea of visiting distant galaxies. Yet science tells us that the deeper we peer into space, then the farther back in time we go. But to be more precise, the deeper we look into space, we see light (or electromagnetic radiation) emitted long, long ago. So this raises the question, "If what we are seeing now actually occurred millions of years ago, then how do we know those objects are still there?" If in truth they are not presently there, then is there really any point in trying to converse with them, let alone attempt to travel to them? This not to say we should not even bother to be aware and study these past events. But they need to be recognized as historical events long past that should not necessarily effect our current day presence.

For an observer to say, "I just saw new stars being born" is not necessarily correct. It is more honest to say "I have seen stars that were born x years ago". To him I would say "If you are going to travel to some distant star, don't be surprised if it is gone before you get there.

Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe appears to be expanding due to the "Doppler Red Shift" he observed of light coming from very distant stars.. From that we have concluded that the more distant starts are "accelerating" away, leading us to theorize that the universe is expanding as a whole attributed to the existence 'dark energy".

But there is something troubling about this. WHAT IS THE POINT THEY ARE EXPANDING FROM? WHERE IS THE CENTER POINT OF THE EXPLOSION? CAN WE NOT SEE LIGHT FROM DISTANT GALAXIES DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM US ON THE OTHER SIDE? WHAT IF THOSE MORE DISTANT STARS ARE NOT RECEDING AWAY FROM US LINEARLY, BUT ARE ACTUALLY CIRCULATING AROUND THE EDGES OF THE UNIVERSE?" IT WOULD STILL BE POSSIBLE TO OBSERVE A RED SHIFT AT THE RIGHT TIMES RELATIVE TO THE POSITION OF THE EARTH? These very simple questions remain to be answered by science, not some arbitrary statements of there being no center or that the universe is an isolated system. If you don't know, then say you don't know.

END OF STORY. (Older notes from here on)
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

D. IS THE VANISHING POINT ONE OR MANY?

Certainly someone has already considered this question, but just in case, I bring it up now.

Suppose two people are standing at opposite poles of the earth, each looking straight up. The question is;
"ARE THEY LOOKING AT DIFFERENT POINTS IN SPACE OR THE SAME ONE?'. This may sound like a stupid question, but it does deserve an answer, because we do know now that light does bend. If they are in fact the same point in space, then as we gaze into the heavens to the farthest light source from no matter where, are we not starring at the original single point of the Big Bang? And if true, then the universe is a CLOSED SYSTEM that happens to be expanding at the moment, possibly causing the effect of time.

Here are some observations.
As has been known for many centuries in art, as you look at something from an increasing distances, the smaller it becomes until it completely vanishes into a single point. Imagine a perfect cross whose limbs are the same length,d. The farther away you move from it (say distance D), the shorter the limb lengths appear. It would almost seem as if there is an inversely proportional relationship between D & d, whereby D x d = Constant K. This observation seems to hold true no matter in what direction you are looking. However, If we now take a larger cross whose limbs are of length s, we now have to be at a farther distance, S, from it before it vanishes. And where S x s = Constant C, it does not follow that Constant C = Constant K unless there is some other mitigating factor, like time, to produce some fixed universal constant X. Perhaps something like X = K/T(d) = C/T(s), where T(d) might be the time it takes light to travel the distance D & T(s) is the time for light to travel the distance S. But this is just mere conjecture.

Here is another view on the vanishing point which could contradict the idea of it being a single point. Instead of a cross made of wood, imagine the cross is made of two strings. You grab one of the strings at the center and begin to pull. The ends of the string are not secured, but have heavy weights on
them so they can reluctantly move. As you pull, the string beings to bend, and the two ends come closer together. If you pull long enough, the two ends will come together as if they were one.

In this analogy, the string you are pulling on is actually the separate light beams of each point along the lateral length of the string (or coss). And the light beams from each end of the string converge into one before those other light beams emitted from the points closer to the center of the string. In other words, the light being emitted from the cross is bending to the vanishing point where all visibility of the cross is gone.

Of course, this too is conjecture, but it does destroy the prior view. And it further falls in line with the idea that it takes a longer time for the light from the ends of the cross to reach your eye than the light from the center of the cross.

E. MEASUREMENTS IN SPACE.

1. The ABILITY TO MEASURE requires the ability to divide
that which is being measured into smaller, but equal, parts.

2. The distance between a rational point in space and an irrational point in space is immeasurable. You cannot measure the distance between the two.

3. REFERENCE SYSTEMS RESTRICTION..
A reference system within the rational sub-space cannot be used to measure distances to points within the irrational sub-space, and visa versa. The ability to measure distance is restricted to the sub-space in which the measurement is being made.

4.Measurement of distance is possible within the irrational
sub-space. Example- The distance between 1/3 and 4/7 is
12/21 - 7/21 = 5/21

5 PARTICLE CENTRALITY.
If the surface of a sphere is in rational space, then its center
is in irrational space. If the center of a sphere is in rational space, then its surface is in irrational space. This may be the reason quantum physics is different from relativity.

6. The role of "TIME"
It may be that "time" is the resolving factor between rational space and irrational space. Therefore, it makes sense to speak of "space-time" as one complete entity. For a truly universal "closed system" to exist, it must include the factor of "time".

The Experience Of Testing and The Testing Of Experience

The Heisenberg UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE is the most honest statement that science can make. It says that an observer, just by the mere act of observing, can impact the outcome of his test, ie, the experience of testing. This gives rise to the "probability" of something being true or false and not claiming the veracity of something as a matter of universal "fact", thereby negating false claims of absolute certainty.

But on a more personal level, we humans are constantly being confronted with the testing of our experience, which can have a more devastating impact on our psyche if we let it..

The point is, when we make claims of something being true or false, we need to assure we are clear that we speak only in reference to ourselves and our own experiences. And when we listen to someone else,we need to be sure they are speaking from their own experience, while at the same time of our observations we are not becoming part of the experiment and engaging in vague generalities or accusations applicable to everybody else which is hypocrisy. Yet we must not be intimidated to not speak our minds, secure in the knowledge that judgment is not the same as condemnation. Without judgment, there is no intelligence.

BULL SHIT! Proves Islam rejects Jesus who clearly said He is God which is believable because He rose from the dead. I dont recall Mohamed doing that. Complete HYPOCRITICAL IDIOT.

Muslims believe in death, not life. They believe in "works", not "grace". They promote suicidal martyrdom. How contradictory and fatalistic their's is. THAT IS NOT "FAITH". It is a death wish that maybe we would be justified in granting them. REAL FAITH REQUIRES THE CONTINUED BELIEF IN LIFE DESPITE DOUBTS. In reality Islam appears to be nothing more than a cult that seeks to coerce its members to do evil.

THE 1996 FLIGHT AND CRASH OF TWA 800.

This was the airliner crash that took off from JFK and just 10 minutes later crashed barely off the coast of New England. I remember seeing it at night on tv being reported. Within a very few years it was dismissed by the government and the media as being the result of a mechanical failure.

However, just having viewed a documentary refuting the official conclusions, I find it grossly disturbing that apparently 258 independent people in total, and at different places at the time of the crash reported immediately having seen 3 different missles tracking to and hitting the plane before bursting into flames. And one reported seeing what appeared to be a missle fired from a ship with a lighted mast. Furthermore, these witnesses report that their stories were squashed by the government as they were being interviewed by the FBI which virtually suppressed the NTSB from further questioning those witnesses.

If their story is true, and I have no reason to not believe 258 people, then we are witnessing the biggest government coverup in history. You can forget all of the other conspiracy stories, because this one appears to be real.

So we ask, "Why would the government create such a coverup?", It would make no sense for such an attack to be launched by a foreign power with their ship being on the surface of the water in plain sight, as reported by one of the credible witnesses. So whose ship could it be other than our own? Such a happening would certainly be sufficient motive for an administration to force a coverup. And it would certainly be sufficient for a political party to become violent in wanting to maintain their hold on power.

Of course it could be argued that if there were such a coverup, then why would it not be exposed when the other political party was in power? So who really knows the reasons? As the saying goes, "Politics makes strange bedfellows."

THE NATURE OF REAL LOVE.

At some point in our individual lives, we humans find ourself asking this questiion, "what is real love?". Tina Turner's song, WHATS LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT, is an example.

So let us begin to identify what real love is not. Real love is not saying to another "I love you" every day without being sustained by action. After a while that begins to seem artificial. Real love is not sex or the euphoria you feel towards a person, animal or other object of your affections. In religious thought that is called idolatry. And real love is not pity for another based upon feigned claims of injury or emvy/jealousy. It does nor go around accusing others of our own circumstaces. So what is real love?

Our first clue comes from Jesus Christ.. What He showed us is that real love is more akin to parental love. But not entirely, that being only a part of real love. To be complete, real love includes the child's payback to the parent(s).

A parent usually desires for his/her child to go on living, EVEN IF THE PARENT IS DEAD AND EVEN IF THE CHILD DOES NOT WANT TO LIVE ANY MORE. This is "real" love. And it requires a sense of duty and obligation, constituting that dreadful word "odedience". IT DOES NOT REQUIRE BLOWING YOUSELF UP IN PURSUIT OF SOME NUTJOB IDEOLOGY. Nor does it include putting on a barbaric display of beheadings.

Real love is based on justice. You cannot have love without justice. Nor can you have justice without real love. Real love is not identity politics. It does not go around claiming to be a victim based upon trivial circumstances. Nor does it condemn a group of others based upon the actions of a few in a group. It is not stereotyping. However it does reserve the right of the individual to judge without condemnation. It does reserve the right to speak freely without being condemned unless there is some action harming others in association with the words spoken. And it does reserve the right of the individual to judge & not to participate in actions that actually promote the violation/destruction of the Moral Laws as described by C S Lewis inthe book MERE CHRISTIANITY.

Jesus commanded that we love GOD and our neighbors. But we cannot do so unless we know what real love is. We cannot do so if we do not believe and know who GOD really is. Jesus claimed himself to be the one true GOD. So through Him we now know who GOD really is.
WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVER LASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.. And where He did say "There is no greater love than laying ones life down for his friends" , He GOD did so for His childern. It is doubtful that He meant this to mean we sbould all commit suicide. Rather, He expects us to show our love for Him in less dramatc ways and through obedience ro Him.

TO BE, OR NOT TO BE.

Another way of looking at it is to say

LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD - VICTIMIZATION VS IDENTITY POLITICS.

VICTIMIZATION requires one person depriving another of something they already rightfully have. True justice requires penalties being imposed upon the perp.

IDENTITY POLITICS is the equivalent of ARTIFICIAL HANDICAPPING which deprives the human race from excelling in fields of human endeavor.

THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH HILLARY CLINTON. HERS IS A PHONEY SOCIAL JUSTICE

Does Christianity require giving in to demands for charity? Not when it is at the involuntary expense of others. Not when the charity is unpolitely requested. Not when it imposes standards that suppress the best mankind can achieve

CREATION vs ENTROPY- The Real Reason Behind Atheism.

"Entropy" is the scientific concept explained in the 2nd Law Of Thermodynamics that says "over time all things evolve from a state of order to disorder". Where this may or may not be true, it is a very fatalistic belief that stands contrary to the existence of a "creator" and leads to a closed mindedness that is worthy of criticism .

For one thing, the concept of entropy requires an isolated system. Who can realisticly say that the universe is an isolated system?

Secondly, when speaking of things we cannot see, it is unintelligent to say they do not exist simply because we cannot see them. Science itself has proven this to be true time and time again. Perhaps the time has come for a more civil discussion wherein there is coexistence between Creation and Entropy, not creation "or" entropy, but creation "and" entropy..

BACK-SEAT STRATEGISTS VS IN-THE-TRENCH WARRIORS.
The game of "GO" is an ancient Asian game that mimics the strategy of war in terms of capturing territory, and is probably more realistic than the game of CHESS. For this reason, it has a great appeal to the intellect that separates the generals from the fighting soldier. It can also have great appeal to hsrd-line politicians, making it okay for the non-fighter to tell the fighter what to do.

But there is a major problem with this scenario in that those who risk nothing relative to those who do risk their lives can become ruthless CONSTIPATED dictators. Prosecuting those who would protect you is the STUPIDEST GD THING that any idiot would ever do! The argument of the warrior saying (but you were not there" is far more compelling that the back-seater saying " you should (or should not) have done this (or that)"

Engaging in such nonsense is time consuming, and meanwhile the situation changes. A real leader will have been in the trenches with his warriors. Yet today we see in our national politics absolute stupidity in this regard with the liberal left whining about the past election and simply inventing stories that are untrue.

Fairness vs Equality.

There are some folks who say that "fairness" is "equality". Not true. Fairness is usually the balancing of consequences between 2 interacting behaviors. It does not mean that the results of that balancing will be equal. The owner of a peace of property acquired through his own hard investment of time and energy does not pay his hired hands the same as he invested even though they may put into the property more than the owner originally invested. Their hard work does not mean they are entitled to share in ownership of the property.

But what about "fairness" where more than two parties are involved.? What about fairness among 3 or more nations.?
Should not the same principles apply when balancing the results for behavioral consequences among nations?

Regardless of skin color, it is completely unacceptable and unjust for people to advance their own agendas and opinions based upon skin color.

You don't really want to solve the problem. All you want is someone else to blame,. If you were really serious about gun control, you would start by invoking capital punishment. NO AMOUNT OF SYSTEMIC CHANGES WOULD HAVE ANY EFFECT AT ALL WITHOUT FIRST ENFORCING CAPITAL PUNISHMENT.

"Naked Democracy" vs "Responsible Democracy".

There is a lot of touting of our being a "democratic state" as opposed to a totalitarian state. Unfortunately, we do not describe what kind of a democratic state we are, and this is important. Why? Because almost 100 years ago a megalomaniac named Hitler realized that he could easily take over and dominate the naked democracy of Germany shortly after WWI. And we all well know what happened after that.

So what is a naked democracy?
To be very simplistic, lets just say a naked democracy is one where the people in the society think they have the right to engage in behavior that is offensive and contrary to representing the truth. Such behavior severely weakens a democracy and exposes it to be being taken over by a dictator, just as Hitler did years ago.

Why is it important today? Quite frankly, the liberal democratic party has engaged in such irresponsible behavior and put this country at risk with their lies, agendas, violence, etc. Every citizen should be most concerned with the arrogance and lies exhibited by this political party.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/jim-breslo-california-management# California is worse than a banana republic. The government is a parasitic blood sucking piece of crap, comprised of arrogant power hungry liberal politicians that do nothing other than to bask in the California sun. Their hypocrisy is way beyond the pale. High taxes and pathetic law making have driven corporations out of the state. Criminals are set free from incarceration, because of overcrowding and lack of funding. Crime and fraud are allowed to grow with no real effective law enforcement, except for when it comes to the relatively innocent law abiding citizen, and then he has to pay hell. The Department of Real Estate is a fraud onto itself that does not even enforce its own licensing laws. Crooked investment brokers do not have their licenses taken away when they conduct scams defrauding the people. The Department of Housing Community Development is a joke being at least 8 months behind in issuing certificates of title with respect to mobile homes and manufactured units, thereby constipating the entire mobile home/real estate market. And with the door wide open for illegals to obtain drivers license, the DMV is so crowded you have to park 1/2 mile away and walk to its offices. From the moment you leave your home, the roads are one continuous traffic jam. And then there are the doctor offices and emergency rooms filled to the brim with crowds. Finally, there are the major metropolitan cities brimming with the honeless, piles of human excrement in the streets, and just plain old bad sanitary conditions. Responsible residents are moving out of the state, abandoning ship because it is so intolerable.That other states would consider California to be a model of perfection is nothing but a big lie. Were I from a different state, I would not spend 1 dime in California.

Lousy liberals would say, "Well if you don't like it, then move". I would tell them "This is my home. I was born here long before you came. Who in the hell let you in?"

"Climate Change" is a piddly issue in comparison to the "Political Climate" of potential nuclear war. You worry about "gun control". How long will it be before Muslim radicals obtain nuclear capability to engage in suicidal nuclear bombings? What are you going to do then, say "Naughty, naughty, shame on you"? Are you going to court martial your soldiers for peeing on enemy graves in their protection of you because you are so damn good? You court martial your soldiers for engaging in crimes like rape and unwarranted murder, not for taking a leak. I wouldn't say "get a life". I would say "keep your own damned life and don't call on me to protect you".

But then who am I, just another "Islamaphobe"? You are afraid of insulting foreigners, yet have no problem insulting your own countrymen. Your domestic rhetoric is far beyond the pale of acceptability. If you cannot control your own rhetoric at home, then how can it be trusted on the international stage where the fight against nuclear proliferation is of the utmost global importance? You think you are entitled to freedom? Maybe you have yet to learn that your current freedom was bought and paid for by others.

IS BEING DISENGAGED A SIN OR A CRIME?

The answer to the question must be in what it is you are disengaged from.

There are those who would preach to you that you have a responsibility to help others who can not help themselves regardless of the behavior and actions of those others that led to their helpless situation. Such preachers pride themselves on the fact that they have ministered in the name of Jesus to murderers and drug addicts, claiming that these people have been rehabilitated and born-again Christians. Where that may, or may not be true, it is the admonishment by those preachers upon others having nothing to do with such murderers and drug addicts that reveals an arrogant eqo not befitting that of a Christian preacher.

On the other hand, certainly it is a sin or a crime for one to be disengaged from things that are the result his/her action and/or behavior. Responsibility and self accountability must never be sacrificed in the name of unconditional forgiveness. A parent has a responsibility (albeit not unconditional) to the lives he/she has created. A person causing a car accident has a responsibility to the lives and/or property damaged. A government has the responsibility of preventing and punishing real crime, not feigned accusations.
etc, etc. Yet forgiveness must never be abandoned when it is warranted and just to all concerned. (enter "righteousness")

STEREO-TYPING - The Fault Of Those Who Would Rule The World

Stereo-typing is not profiling.
Stereo-typing is the condemnation of a group of people based upon artificial traits/events and that fails to attribute any possible individual goodness within that group of people.
Profiling is the recognition of an individual traits that fit within the common traits exhibited by a group of people on a larger scale.

Stereo-typing is stereo-typing no matter who is doing it. Almost any supremacist group engages in stereo-typing: Cultural supremacists, generational supremacists, white supremacists, black supremacists, brown supremacists, Asian supremacists, Caucasian supremacist, African supremacists, middle eastern supremacists, Indian supremacists, Hispanic supremacists, male supremacists, female supremacists, liberal supremacists, conservative supremacists, etc
For this reason & global peace, the world is divided into compartments called nations, which helps to minimize the negative effects of stereo-typing and assures diversity. It is only when a nation seeks to infringe upon, violate, and/or invade the established borders of its neighbors that global peace is diminished and war breaks out.

This is not to say that nationalization and national pride is a bad thing. In fact it is a desirable good thing that benefits its members. It is only when one particular group seeks to impose its will upon the rest of the world on a global scale that such arrogance and pride disturb global peace & is wrong.

We see such global disturbances when supremacists persist in blaming a new generation for the sins of the new generation's fathers and seek unjust large scale retribution, such as:
1. The Chinese Communist Party that persist in persecuting western democratic societies for their long past history of imposing their pre-democratic treatment of China. It should be remembered that China was one of the world's first empires. A communist party that seeks to continue that empire is still an empire.
2. The western world's race-baiting and discrimination-baiting political parties of today that persist in false allegations charging the current generation on a mass scale of committing the sins attributed to the fathers of the current generation and whose only purpose is to impose their faulty views upon the rest of the globe in order that they might rule & dictate globally to foreign cultures, thereby permitting them to have the unfettered freedom to invade those other cultures. A western world that seeks to impose its cultural ways upon the rest of the world is still an empire.
3. The middle eastern world's radical and extremist Muslim Sharia ideology/doctrine that denies the existence of Jesus Christ as being God and seeks to globally persecute any and all those who disagree with their dictates. A middle eastern world that seeks to impose its Sharia Law upon the rest of the world is still an empire.

Stereo-typing is stereo-typing.
Imposing is imposing.
Invasion is invasion whether peacefully or not.
And an empire is the global domination and subjugation of the many by a few ,ie,a tryanny granting unfettered freedom to the few.

Of course, we have our own liberal political party (the democrats) out to do exactly the same thing, ie, world domination via globalization of morals, culture and law, all in complete denial of real "diversification" while exhibiting a feigned advocacy of individual freedom & human rights.

There can be good intentions behind such anonymity when one offers a gift to another, but I would not call that "dark" money. On the other hand, when one offers money to someone else to do a dubious job for them, how is that any different than hiring a hit man to kill an adversary? Covertly Influencing elections in this manner is no different than offering bribery. We see the same thing in "undisclosed" fake news reports.

They say "Forgive and forget" as if we are built with the ability to will it all disappear. BUT WE ARE NOT BUILT THAT WAY. Our minds automatically remember. Case in point - I was driving to my current home which is nearby my old home of 20 years ago. Unconsciously, I automatically turned down the street to my old home. So "no", it is not within our will power to forget. And there are some things I will never forget, let alone forgive. A court room judge telling young children, who witnessed the murder of their mother by their father, "Forgive and forget" will never be forgotten or forgiven. Of course minor offenses are forgivable, and they may, or may not, be forgotten.

Certainly history keeps past offenses in the mind. But once the perpetrators are dead and gone, there is little justification for blaming non-perpetrators in a continuance of the search for justice. Case in point....slavery in the US.

There is no such thing as a political party being in power without it being discriminatory. That a political party would seek power representing itself as non-discriminatory would be a lie and hypocrisy. The only way to really be non-discriminatory is to stay out of the fray, and then you expose yourself to being ruled by others. But if you care about rational and pragmatic justice for the greater number of people and equitable allocation of resources, then you cannot sit back and do nothing, while staying within the physical context of the society in which you live and which portends to rule your life.

The same applies to nations whose borders are limits to others and sovereign. In other words, to each is own without imposing beyond your limits into the affairs of others.

Case in point- Huntington Beach. The California so-called government of Jerry Brown ILLEGALLY & UNCONSTITUTIONALLY passed CA SB54, the so-called SANCTUARY STATE LAW, WHICH PREVENTS POLICE DEPARTMENTS FROM WORKING WITH ICE. (IMMIGRATIONS & CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT) Huntington Beach, as a CHARTER CITY, filed suit against Jerry Brown's SB544 AND WON ON THE GROUNDS THAT IT VIOLATED CALIFORNIA'S CONSTITUTION.

If you care at all about where you reside, IF YOU CARE AT ALL ABOUT YOUR NEIGHBORS, IF YOU CARE AT ALL ABOUT OUR NATION, ... THEN IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR LOCAL RIGHTS OVER THE STATE IN WHICH YOU LIVE.

Is it not strange that Hillary Clinton can be dismissed from what amounted to OBVIOUS TREASON AGAINST THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY (THE RUSSIAN URANIUM DEAL) , BECAUSE THE FBI ALLEGED "NO INTENT"? Yet a citizen can make some off the cuff remark and it is immediately seized upon as some major threat to our national security.

Rush Limbaugh calls the illegals entering our country (current or would be) "VICTIMS"? I DISAGREE. VICTIMS OF WHAT? THERE ARE ENOUGH REAL VICTIM CITIZENS IN THIS COUNTRY WHO HAVE SUFFERED FROM MURDER AND MOLESTATION WITHOUT PROPER JUSTICE, WHILE THEY WATCH THEIR ATTACKERS GO FREE. NEAR 3000 PEOPLE WERE MURDERED IN THE MUSLIM ATTACK OF 911 IN 2001. THERE WERE MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE MURDERED AT FT HOOD WHILE WE CONTINUE TO SPOON FEED THE PERP. THERE ARE CHILDREN RAPED & MURDERED BY RELEASED CONVICTS. YET ALL WE SEE IS THE CONTINUED INJUSTICE OF THE DERILICTION OF DUTY IN THE GOVERNMENT'S OBLIGATION TO PROTECT ITS PEACEFUL CITIZENS.

THIS COUNTRY DOES NOT NEED ANY MORE GENERIC VICTIMS. WE NEED TO ASK "VICTIMS AT THE HANDS OF WHO & EXACTLY WHAT". ALLEGED VICTIMS CAN BE VERY GOOD AT VICTIMIZING REAL VICTIMS. IF CHARITY DOES NOT BEGIN AT HOME, THEN THERE IS NO CHARITY. IF YOU DO NOT ENFORCE THE BORDERS OF YOUR COUNTRY, THEN YOU HAVE NO SOVEREIGN NATION.

What GOOD parents send their children on a trip by themselves to invade another country? It is the exploitation of their children for political gain. And the EXPLOITATION is allowed to continue by local POWER HUNGRY lying liberals who seek to undermine the electorate.

"NOT IN MY BACKYARD" is justified purely based upon PROPERTY RIGHTS which HYPOCRITICAL LYING LIBERALS, LIKE MAXINE WATERS, FALL BACK ON WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR OWN PROPERTY. But they have no scruples when it comes to telling others what to do with their property.

Did Christ Really Die For ME?

We are told that Jesus died for us. We are encouraged to "have a personal relationship with Christ". But what does that really mean? Are we suppose to go on some sort of a guilt trip?

Because He does not appear to be here on earth, it is really difficult for many people (myself included) to accept those statements,, especially when they see so much pain in their lives. It becomes rather easy to dismiss any notion of Christ entirely. But this makes it even more important to really learn about the life & times of Jesus Christ, thereby giving us a greater understanding of what is meant when they say "Jesus died for you".

To summarize it more distinctly, it can be said that Christ died for the freedom & rights of the individual, while, at the same time, He acknowledged the rights of property ownership. So it is clear that His intent was to uphold both HUMAN RIGHTS & PROPERTY RIGHTS together. They should not be at odds with each other.

So in this sense, He did in fact "die for me". But who is "me"? It tends to put everything on a personal emotional basis. A more logical statement would be "He died for MY PERSONAGE", meaning He wanted me to develop a character & behave in accordance with His laws which are to the benefit and betterment of mankind.

So herein is the real world justification for believing in Christ. But beyond that, He put a cherry on top by demonstrating the existence of life after death & the reality of Heaven, therein giving mankind a real meaning & hope for the future.To dismiss this is to become a pessimistic fatalist who sees life as a vain endeavor subject only to the laws of survival of the fittest and who would use religion as instrument in furthering their own interests.

ITS BEEN CALLED MEXIFORNIA

For a dispossessed people to abide in a country, THERE MUST BE ROOM & RESOURCES TO ACCOMMODATE THEM. Clearly, national environmentalists understand & support this. Even liberal democrat Harry Reid agreed to support Obama in 2008, PROVIDED THAT OBAMA SHUT DOWN THE YUCCA MOUNTAIN NUCLEAR WASTE FACILITY. "NOT IN MY BACKYARD" is not uncommon among any home-based residents, democrat, republican, liberal or conservative. AND IT IS JUSTIFIED BASED UPON PROPERTY RIGHTS & OWNERSHIP, assuming the property was acquired peacefully or by non-coerced agreement (not including war).

But today you have stupid ass dispossessed liberals who choose to ignore this basic law and who advocate violence as a means of acquiring property rights & ownership of their own and who would turn right around & speak to the detriment of other dispossessed peoples in defending their newly acquired rights. It is called THE ANIMAL LAW OF SURVIVAL. But it is also called HYPOCRISY, that is UNLESS ONE STICKS TO THE ORIGINAL LAW OF JUSTIFIED OWNERSHIP.

The Mexican government was properly paid by the United States in its acquisition of California., aka, THE TREATY OF HILDAGO. For them or their peoples to now come back and lay claim to possession of California is demonstrative of their cheap mentality seeking only to benefit their own race as express by the RACIST GROUP called LA RAZA. That American citizens would even consider giving up their rightful ownership of California is unconscionable.

On Dealing With The Pain Of Failure.

Every human being will ultimately fail in his endeavors.
We fail in love. We fail in courage. We fail in accomplishing our highest dreams and aspirations. We fail at almost every turn in our lives.

Failure is a part of our lives. Jesus Christ knew this when He told Peter "You will deny me 3 times". And Peter did fail. But what did Peter do after this? Did he blame the Romans for his own failure and engage in endless rant? No. Did he blame himself & fall into a notorious drug habit engaging in self pity? No. He simply moved on to build a church dedicated to the one he had failed.

It would seem that when we "fail" in our endeavors, we humans take one of 2 paths: 1) We blame & condemn ourselves mercilessly or 2) We blame others for our failures mercilessly. Neither is necessarily the correct solution. Failure should cause us to to reexamine our own goals to determine whether or not they are correct, reasonable & justified. If the goal is beyond reasonable possibility, then it is unrealistic to continue shooting for it, and an adjustment is obviously required. So herein is a 3rd possible answer to our dilemmas.

This is not to say that failure must be an option. But nevertheless we should always be prepared for it, and always be ready to deal with it correctly & justly when it occurs.

Extreme & unwarranted blame in either direction can lead to unrighteousness & injustice. And so it would seem that the Lying Liberal Left has gone far beyond the boundaries of justice in their endless blame-game rants & demonstrations. Why would that be? It is because their most obvious goal is to dictate and impose their own selfish will upon the rest of the world by whatever means necessary, ie, an unrealistic goal that seeks to enslave others which is completely contrary to the teachings of & freedoms granted by Jesus Christ.. One need look no further than their use of the courts to overturn and impose laws that would not otherwise be acknowledged legislatively.

The use of children as political pawns is a key sign of the injustice of despotism. Clearly, the lying liberal left is doing exactly that with respect to illegal migration. Preventing children from engaging in or becoming part of wrong doing is not the abuse of children. It is "righteous discipline" to correct behavior (not thought).

And then there is the outright abuse of children by the heterodoxy of self-proclaimed religions, such as Islam, the KKK, Children Of God, Jim Jones, David Koresh, the LRA, some elements of the Roman Catholic church, et al.

MACHINE GUN PREACHER = Very interesting true story/movie. CHECK IT OUT.

Not all who call themselves "Christians" are, especially if they
preach "heterodoxy" (like the LRA, Lord's Resistence Army in the Sudan) instead of "orthodoxy".

Heterodoxy in a religious sense means "any opinions or doctrines at variance with an official or orthodox position".[1] Under this definition, heterodoxy is similar to unorthodoxy, while the adjective "heterodox" could be applied to a dissident.

Islam preaches "heterodoxy".

Let me tell you about "COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET" and what it really means.

So much has been made about the poor homosexuals who have had to hide their feelings from society and how terrible they have been treated. Well brother, that ain't nothing compared to the millions of Christians around the world who have been (and continue to be) mercilessly persecuted by dictators in the past & violent Muslim countries of today. And we are suppose to feel sorry for these perpetrators of violence & injustice. Huh, fat chance, especially after giving their religion/ideology the benefit of a doubt.

I was raised by parents who gave me a choice between being a believer in God or a non-believer. In our family we never discussed politics or religion. But then we lived in the times immediately after WW II, a time of great peace in the United States. We were taught to be courteous & not be in the face of others with our beliefs or our politics. Those were to be kept within our own personal & secret selves. (Even the Bible told us to pray & give in private.)

At the age of 9, my first attendance of two Christian church services resulted in my rejection of religion for years to come. One was a Catholic service with my aunt & uncle where It was all in Latin, & I did not understand one damned word. The 2nd was with a friend to a Baptist church where they preached hell fire & damnation. Who needed that I thought. So I was set on a secular path, along with a built in fear of being called a religious nut job by my peers.

But around the same time, there was one experience at a Presbyterian church during an Easter egg hunt that I have never forgot. It wasn't during any service, but outside the church. It was the greatest sense of peace & an omni- presence that I have never forgotten. And I felt it again several times as I was in my dating years. So on occasion I would secretly pray for my dreams for & with a female partner to be fulfilled. But they never were. So each time I would abandon any such belief in God & hide deeper any thoughts of ever expressing any such belief.

The years went by with one catastrophy after another. It was obvious to me that there was no loving God, although I could not bring myself to be so arrogant as to proclaim there to be no God as many academics had done . I was locked in the closet of disbelief. But yet I continued to search the scriptures of the Bible, seeing one contradiction after another.

A particular problem I had was with murderers who declared themselves to be "Born Again Christians". How can you murder another innocent person & claim yourself to be a "Christian". "Good clean cut Christian boys" attached to a picture from jail, depicting a murderer with his cell mates, was sent to the victim's family. I ultimately came to view this as an insult against real Christians who had never hurt an innocent soul.

And then came along Obama, arrogantly proclaiming the United States to not be a "Christian Nation", an obvious lie and in concert with Muslims attacking Christians throughout the world. This is when, after years of hiding it, that I had to make a choice & come out of my closet. This was no longer just a physical war. It was a spiritual war. It was & is a war against an ideology that seeks only to enslave & destroy the freedom of choice that my parents & Jesus Christ have given me.

This is what "coming out of the closet" really means. It means
serving a just & righteous Lord who is a loving & protective parent of His own. He is a Lord who leaves humanity with the freedom to choose & repent (if need be) between openly advocating & professing His Name & His Way or that of Satan. It means serving a real human being who lived among us, rose from the dead, & promises to return, not some nut job pedophile who had some religious wet dream and whose Nazi jew hating followers advocate "death to America" & whose self-righteous hypocritical empathizers declare their right to spew their stinking Sharia Law in our home country. As Jesus said, "Get thee from me evil one", aka, "Go to hell, you phony, hypocritical, lying, slanderous, murderous, peace-destroying Christiphobic snakes". The real closet door is being opened & Jesus Christ will win it.

It has been said that in order to survive, one must be able to "adapt". But how true is that? Under what circumstances, on what issues & to what extant are we to "adapt" before we loose all credibility & trust with our family, neighbors & countrymen, in fact even our own identity? When something is broken, we "fix" it, meaning we make it work better, but we do not destroy the original intent. Even Microsoft has made "fixes" to WINDOWS, but it has never changed its entire identity.

On the other hand, our liberal courts & advocates have been hell bent on changing the moral character of our Constitution & hence our society. I would dare say our founding fathers would roll over in their grave at the site of what has evolved in our society, ie, opened borders, opened cities, feces in the streets, foreign nationals disrespecting our flag & taking over our public streets with unjustified protests, homelessness, drug addiction, extensive impropriety, street & drug gangs, opened daily murder (even of children), opened sexual perversion, diminished self accountability, ... and the list goes on. Respect among & for fellow citizens has hit a new low, with possibly the exception of the Civil War. But we are quickly approaching even that low.

Cases in point, the persecution of General Flynn & the Paul Manaford trial. "EQUALITY" under the law is suppose to be a prime virtue of our Constitution. But hat is being thrown out the window when it comes to liberal application of the law, resulting in the worst hypocrisy imaginable. The fact is, Hillary Clinton should be in jail for promoting the sale of our uranium resources to the Russians. Why would anyone ever do that? Yet she has been made an exception to being prosecuted for that and many, many other crimes. This is not equal justice under the law.

Other cases in point, he Supreme Court's overturning of California's Prop 8 & Congress's definition of marriage, BOTH RULINGS COMPLETELY CONTRARY TO THE DEMOCRATIC WILL OF THE PEOPLE. NO WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION IS THE SUPREME COURT GRANTED THE AUTHORITY TO TAKE SUCH ACTION. THE COURT'S ALLEGED POWER OF JUDICIAL REVIEW IS ONE THAT WAS UNCONSTITUTIONALLY ASSUMED BY JOHN MARSHAL. THE COURT HAS BECOME A CONSTITUTIONAL BODY EXERCISING UNCONSTITUTIONAL POWERS. IT IS AN OLIGARCHY OF THE WORST KIND, now imposing even upon the valid Constitutional duties of the President Of The United States. AN AMENDMENT IS LONG OVER DUE TO REQUIRE CONFIRMATION BY CONGRESS WHEN THE COURT OVERTURNS THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

JESUS CHRIST did not say we were to yield to each and every offense against our loved ones, our neighbors, or our countrymen. HE DID SAY TO STAND FIRM LIKE A ROCK AGAINST EVIL. WE ARE TO HAVE MORAL PRINCIPLES THAT HONOR HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN. WE ARE TO HAVE, AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE, THE CHARACTER OF GOD AS EXPRESSED IN THE BIBLE AND WITHOUT BEING GOD HIMSELF.

SOCIALISM.
"TODAY THE COUNTRY. TOMORROW THE WORLD."

The NAZI Party was the NATIONAL "SOCIALIST" PARTY, thereby proving that "SOCIALISM" ULTIMATELY RESULTS IN A DICTATORSHIP. The word "NATIONAL" indicates the extent to which common cultural values apply, not any specific economic agenda. The word "NATIONAL" is intended to define a larger "FAMILY" whose home is restricted to a limited geographic area & that conforms to the rule of common law restricted to that area & leaving NO EXCEPTIONS FOR CORRUPT POLITICAL LEADERS TO BENEFIT THEMSELVES BY DIPPING INTO COMMON FUNDS, AS WOULD NATURALLY OCCUR UNDER "SOCIALISM".

The world is only so large. That it is divided into "nations" is only logical. That individual "nationalism" exists is only logical & justifiable as defined by centuries of human existence. Where possible, even a family divides its home into partitions, thereby allowing its members to enjoy a certain amount of personal freedom. To advocate for IMPOSED GLOBAL VALUES THAT DESTROY A NATION'S CULTURAL VALUES IS TO SURRENDER THE RIGHTS TO "INDIVIDUALISM & REFUSAL TO PARTICIPATE".

So it is an obvious OXYMORON for a party to call itself the NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY. And it is an OXYMORON for a party to call itself a "DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST" Party.

In view of their complete discrediting of the truth of well proven history, it should be obvious that those advocating "socialism", promising economic fairness to all & "for the common good' , are liars and are only really interested in acquiring the power to dictate over others, imposing their will whether others like it or not, & are ultimately incapable of limiting any acquired power to their own national area. They lie, they distort, they exaggerate, they slander, they divert attentions, they propagandize, they encourage violence & disruption of the public peace to create the illusion of power. In short, as Jesus said, "THEY ARE WOLVES IN SHEEPS' CLOTHING".

Morality & The Issue Of Illegal Immigration.

A black pastor, Chuck Hunt, delivered a very transparent & penetrating sermon today that did not really directly address the issue of illegal immigration, but may have alluded to it. His over all message was distinct & caring, conforming to the best interpretation of scripture possible. He gave a great distinction between what is trust & what is faith. I have no hesitation in declaring him to be a brother in Christ.

But then there was one little very brief reference to caring, including the caring for immigrants. It began to raise a red flag for me. But my fears were quickly alleviated when he said that we must be advocates for Christ, but NOT IN A "PUSHY" WAY. AND THEREIN IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REAL CHRISTIANITY & PHONY CHRISTIANITY.

Maxine Waters is a PHONY CHRISTIAN when she advocates being in other peoples faces in advocating for illegal migrants. Politicians may claim to have God on their side, which even Hitler did. But that is just pure bull shit.

The scriptures are filled with contradictions which sometimes make it difficult to come to a proper decision. Nevertheless, we are admonished to follow them to the best of our ability and use our best reasoning in fulfilling our first loyalties to family, neighbors, & countrymen.

So she used to be a "socialist". More specifically, she used to think about socialist ideas. There is nothing wrong with considering all possibilities. WHAT IS WRONG IS THE BEHAVIOR RESULTING FROM SUCH THINKING. So did she ever hurt, slander or attack any innocent person? Did she ever blame anyone else for her own behavior like the lying liberal left of today? Probably not. On that basis she can be forgiven.

As long as we are inventing human rights, here is THE ULTIMATE HUMAN RIGHT..

That every living breathing human being has the undeniable right to a safe dwelling place. That, without exception or exemption, every renter or owner of a dwelling be required to provide free accommodation to any and every human being seeking to live in their dwelling for any unspecified time. That refusal of such accommodation will be deemed to constitute discrimination , bigotry, hate mongering, racism, homophobia, islamaphobia, xenophobia, & inhumane denial of every person's natural right to safe dwelling, prosecutable by law & subject to imprisonment for a period of no less than 10 years & a fine of no less than $1 million. Oh, and btw, let's take away your guns too so we can easily throw you in jail while we let murderers and gangs out free to roam the streets & invade your home.

It used to be that Hollywood & the press had a good grasp on the meaning of hypocrisy. Not any more. Catch-22 was a crazy & barely coherent movie. It was definitely not one of my favorites. But it made a very good point, ie, that hypocrisy produces injustice. Here'a an example. Over half way through the movie, a soldier deliberately pushes a woman out the window of a high rise because he rapped her & did not want any witnesses. Yossarian, the main character who is off base, sees this, runs up the stairs to the room where the culprit smugly sits & confronts the culprit. He tells him that he killed another human and the police will arrest him. The culprit says "No they won't, they'll arrest you". They banter back & forth, & then the police siren is heard approaching. In bust the MPs, at first looking at the culprit with his pants down. They then turn to Yossarian & arrest him for being awol, leaving the culprit free. THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF NONSENSE NUT-JOB SOCIETY WE HAVE EVOLVED INTO TODAY, ALL THANKS TO OUR LIBERAL COURTS & POLITICIANS.

"OH, THE CHILDREN" Imagine the following hypothetical court case before the World Court - CHILDREN OF THE WORLD VS THE UNITED STATES. Is this a rational & legal action or is it utter nonsense? First of all, there is absolutely nothing that says that just because a person is a child, he/she is qualified to initiate or file such an action. That means a responsible adult, or adults, must bring the action on behalf the child. Secondly, a child is more likely to be prone to havea vivid imagination, and therefore, the veracity of his/her story must be thoroughly validated by the adult taking action on behalf of the child. Thirdly, if there is more than one child being represented, then names of all children being represented must be identified, lest the accused be denied the proper right to confront one's accusers. Therefore, "CHILDREN OF THE WORLD" is an improper representation of the accuser(s) before the court. However, class action law suits have been allowed to occur without identifying the specific accusers, thereby opening the door for unscrupulous politicians to make all kinds of outrageous claims for the purposes of their own self glorification. It is not sufficient to have a self-proclaimed representative of a class action group identified without identifying the specific victims within that group & the specifics of the behavior that caused them to become victims at the hands of the accused. To allow less than this is laziness & unjust. There is no such thing as one size fits all. Each case must rise or fall on the merits of its specific facts, not upon cheap emotionalism, innuendo, & exaggeration. Ted Cooper Initially thought he was a jerk.

Nevertheless, you have children & society expects you to provide for those children until they are adults. If you do not have the resources to do so, then provisions should be made to help you out.

I heard of this club, or one like it, in which incest was being practiced, causing some of the abused children to commit suicide in later life. THIS IS WRONG! ADULTS ABUSING CHILDREN IN THIS WAY IS WRONG & A CRIME.! CHILD MOLESTATION IS WRONG & A CRIME! HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS WRONG & A CRIME! Jesus said: "You have heard that it was said, `Do not commit adultery.' But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell". "whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven." "There is no marriage in Heaven". As a Christian, I condemn these so-called phony Christians who violate their alleged faith & would prosecute them for criminal enslavement of children. Muslims do not seem to have any will to prosecute their own in the same manner. #FoxNews Updated Jun 13, 2018, 9:15 AM Ted Cooper The individual, Rod Rosenstein, NEEDS TO COMPLY WITH THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PEOPLE. #FoxNews Updated Jun 13, 2018, 12:11 AM Ted Cooper Okay. Updated Jun 12, 2018, 8:46 PM Ted Cooper updated his status. Trump has no class? Obama insisted on describing us with negatives. He kept saying "That's not who we are.". "We are not a Christian nation". "Guns & Bibles". NEGATIVE AFTER NEGATIVE. Trump describes us with positives, saying "THIS IS WHO WE ARE". Trump has no class? BULL SHIT. Obama had no class. Ted Cooper "WHA WHA WHA. There is no agreement regarding human rights. This is an empty deal. There is no Trump Doctrine. He is not even capable of developing one. He has no style or class. etc, etc WHA WHA WHA." So says the hypocritical lying liberal left. The trouble with HYPOCRITICAL INTELLECTUAL BIGOTS is that they want to rule the whole damned world & right now. Have they not done enough damage already? GIVE IT TIME! It's not like this is costing us anything the way it did with Obama & the lousy Iranian deal.

De Niro has been acting too long. Now thinks he is one of those big correct guys who he falsely portrayed. Typical foul mouthed bully syndrome who knows nothing more than the "F" word which his demented Hollywood scripts taught him. Will Hollywood ever get back script writers who don't play in poo & who actually know the English language? #FoxNews Updated Jun 11, 2018, 12:51 PM Ted Cooper They may have a point about the evils of the world. But what has that got to do with learning English? How is learning a language "evil"? There is nothing wrong with refusing to join the whims of society. Early Christians refused to come out & greet Caesar as he passed by their dwellings. But simply learning the language of that society does not mean you consent to that society's behavior. And it can be construed to be rude & inconsiderate to speak your own language in the presence of natives who do not speak your tongue. If they do not want to speak English , then maybe they should relocate to Israel. That does not mean they should be rounded up & deported if they are in fact citizens. But then one must ask how did they become citizens in the first place? If you are a citizen of this country, then YOU SHOULD SPEAK ENGLISH. WHEN IN ROME DO AS THE ROMANS. AND IF YOU BECOME A WARD OF SOCIETY, THEN YOU NEED TO OBEY THE JUST & REASONABLE DEMANDS OF THAT SOCIETY OR ELSE BE RELOCATED TO WHERE YOU FIT IN BETTER.. Obviously, the GREAT MELTING POT idea might not be so great after all. We work & sacrifice like hell to preserve the habitat of other biological life. But when it comes to our own human habitats, that is fair game for anyone & everyone. Do you not suppose that the God of Moses worked like crazy to build the nation of Israel to make for them a habitat to preserve their culture against other cultures? Cultural preservation in the land of its origin is a right that preempts universal human rights. The borders claimed may expand or shrink, but the right to exist in the native homeland is still a right that protects against invasion & destruction of the culture. Protection of the culture begins with immediate family. If you cannot protect your own family adequately, then you have no business sacrificing your family on behalf of other non-family persons. Assuming you can protect your own family, then you can extend your protection to neighbors & friends. If you can adequately protect your own family & neighbors & friends, then you can begin to think about protecting strangers. And regardless of your own ability or lack thereof, you can always pray on behalf of worthy & deserving strangers. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, Jesus. Updated Jun 11, 2018, 10:10 AM Ted Cooper updated his status. "HYPER-SENSITIVITY" IS A MENTAL DISEASE THAT HAS PERMEATED OUR SOCIETY & threatens to destroy it.. It is also known as "political correctness". It is the extreme opposite of HYPER-INSENSITIVITY, otherwise known as "arrogance" and "undue pride". Both result in bearing false witness.  WHAT IS VIRTUAL SPACE IN THE "FABRIC" OF SPACE? For a complete presentation, go to http://www.trcooper.com/Science/SPT.html The definition of an IRRATIONAL NUMBER is a number, using any integer based number system, for which there exist no integers p and q such that the ratio between p and q is the desired number. It is the fractional part of an irrational number that makes it irrational. It is the part that can no longer be divided. It is the part that is less than unity & in no way relates to unity. It stands by itself & can never be approached. Irrational numbers must not be construed to simply be those numbers that have an unending decimal point. For example take the number .333333..... & on, which is the result of dividing 1 by 3. The question is, "CAN YOU EVER LAND EXACTLY ON THIS NUMBER?". The answer is, "YES, IF YOU ARE IN A BASE 3 NUMBER SYSTEM WHERE 1 DIVIDED BY 3 = .1 EXACTLY WITH NO UNENDING SEQUENCE". BUT PI, the ratio of the circumference (C) to the diameter (2r) of a "perfect" circle , IS IRRATIONAL NO MATTER THE INTEGER BASED NUMBER SYSTEM. The equation for approximating the circumference of a "perfect" circle is well known to be C = 2r x PI. And even though r, the radius, may be a rational number, C becomes irrational, BECAUSE A RATIONAL NUMBER TIMES AN IRRATIONAL NUMBER IS AN IRRATIONAL NUMBER. In REAL SPACE you cannot go an irrational distance via linear measurement. This might seem to be contradicted by fact that we all know that we can travel a rational linear distance on our car wheels. So how can we say this? The fact is our car wheel is not a "perfect" circle. Some may argue that they can make the perfect circle (or wheel) by rotating a fixed linear distance about a fixed point. But the fact is there are microscopic errors in that process. The fact is it is physically impossible to create the perfect circle. The perfect circle is a "virtual" entity, not a real one. Our car wheel is only an approximation. When it comes to measuring REAL DISTANCES (or lengths), the unit of measure must be a rational number, because YOU CAN NEVER TRAVEL AN IRRATIONAL DISTANCE FOR WANTING TO GET TO IT & WITHOUT SKIPPING OVER IT. It is physically impossible. This means that the "perfect" circle is an "IRRATIONAL NUMBER GENERATOR", the revolutions of which can be used as a unit of measure to virtually map the points in space that are irrational, even though we can never physically get to them. Depending upon the real linear length of the circle's radius, r, if r is extremely small relative to the unit of linear distance measure, then there will be more irrational numbers per normal unit linear distance traveled than if r is extremely large. When the unit of measure is an inch, a car wheel is extremely large as compared to an atomic particle size. And so, when using inches as a unit of measure it might seem there are far more rational distances than irrational distances traveled by the car wheel as it unwinds along its linear path. We simply ignore the existence of irrational distances. An old joke went, the difference between a mathematician & and an engineer has to do with trying to reach Marilyn Monroe by going half the distance to her, then half the distance again, & so on. The mathematician would say that he would never reach her. The engineer would say that he could reach her for all practical purposes. No matter, that does not alter the fact of the existence of irrational virtual points along the path traveled, which leads us to conclude that these irrational virtual points must form a VIRTUAL SPACE that is intertwined with REAL SPACE. VIRTUAL SPACE is that in which distances can be computed by the number of complete revolutions, R, of a perfect wheel of a very small radius, r, but NOT MEASURABLE BY A LINEAR RULER. It is physically impossible to exactly locate a point when it is an irrational distance from the REAL POINT of origin. Therefore, VIRTUAL SPACE is comprised of all points located at an irrational distance from the real point of origin & interspersed with REAL SPACE. It is as if the "template" of real space was overlayed with the "template" of virtual space, with possibly "time" being the separator between the two. To recap the mathematics of the situation, the reason for the difference between VIRTUAL SPACE & REAL SPACE is that the circumference of a wheel is an IRRATIONAL NUMBER based upon the expression, C = D * PI, where the D is the diameter expressed as a rational number, & PI is an irrational number, which makes C, the circumference, an irrational number. It is physically impossible to exactly locate a point when it' is an irrational distance from the REAL POINT of origin. Therefore, VIRTUAL SPACE is comprised of all points located at an irrational distance from the real point of origin & interspersed with REAL SPACE. It is as if the "template" of real space was overlayed with the "template" of virtual space, with possibly "time" being the separator between the two. . Why is this important? Scientist and mathematicians of today are talking about the "FABRIC OF SPACE-TIME". They are telling us that there is a "quantum world" consisting of more than time & 3 dimensions. They are telling us that there are sub-atomic particles having the property of "SPIN". They are telling us that space-time is malleable & impacted by gravity. They are telling us that there exists a "dark matter", 'black holes" & "dark energy". We do not dispute the scientists.They have plenty of evidence to support their claims. But in order to understand that "fabric", we need to know exactly what the components of space really might be & how to locate & view them. The world of numbers & proportions might not solve everything. But they certainly help. We may come to find that the infinitesimal has some very large consequences. In addition, to REAL SPACE & VIRTUAL SPACE, there may be an IMAGINARY SPACE which would be comprised of all imaginary numbers, ie, the square root of negative numbers. So it might be said that TOTAL SPACE INCLUDES REAL SPACE, VIRTUAL SPACE, & IMAGINARY SPACE. As an ending brain teaser, one might ask "WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ONE TRAVELING THE SPEED OF LIGHT APPROACHES A VIRTUAL (IRRATIONAL) POINT?" WHAT IS VIRTUAL SPACE IN THE "FABRIC" OF SPACE?

Ted Cooper He may have been a good boxer, BUT HE EVADED HIS RESPONSIBILITY WHEN ALL OTHER MALES (NOT FEMALES) WERE BEING DRAFTED. DO YOU NOT THINK THAT THIS IS "HYPOCRITICAL BIGOTRY" AND ENSLAVEMENT AT ITS FINEST? In the disgusting '60s , draft card burners should have been prosecuted or at least civilly charged. Either you have a bunch of able bodied pansies who just want to live off & not protect society, or you have a society where all members are willing to " RISK THEIR LIFE ON BEHALF OF THEIR FRIENDS" , if not at least to justly support the justified efforts to defend our country. I did not especially like Elvis at first, BUT I GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR AT LEAST HAVING THE GUTS TO DEFEND HIS COUNTRY. The DRAFT was one of the MOST UNFAIR FORMS OF "DISCRIMINATION" there was, even with the lottery being implemented. But the lottery did incorporate more fairness than before that. Where I never evaded the draft & even went down to enlist for Vietnam (but was turned down), I have serious questions if I believe in supporting our society today, given its hypocritical politicians & directions. WHO WANTS TO FIGHT FOR A COUNTRY WITH OPENED BORDERS THAT ALLOWS EVERYONE & ANYONE TO ENTER WITHOUT EXTREME VETTING? WHO WANTS TO FIGHT FOR A COUNTRY WHERE THE MURDERERS OF DECENT & INNOCENT FAMILY MEMBERS ARE NOT GIVEN THEIR DUES & SET FREE BASED UPON SOME WARPED SENSE OF FORGIVENESS, GUILT & FALSE HUMANITARIANISM? Today's liberal politicians & liberal judges have created & encouraged a jungle warfare state where it is every person for themselves. But Trump has revived a portion of my belief in what was once a decent society with the hope that this country will once again be a decent society in which to live, especially for my grand children & neighbors. He has one hell of a fight before him & I hope to God he wins, ON BEHALF OF ALL CONSERVATIVES. NO! ALI MAY BE A GOOD PERSON, BUT HE IS ABSOLUTELY NO HERO! Sorry Cosell.

And then there is Stormy Daniels who ought to be taken out, chastised & disgraced, BASED UPON HER VIOLATION OF THE AGREEMENT FOR WHICH SHE WAS PAID and regardless of any truth to her alleged story, WHICH IS DESCRIPTIVE OF NO REAL HARM, NOT IN GOOD FAITH & NOW IRRELEVANT ANYWAY. HERS IS EFFECTIVELY THE STORY OF A PROSTITUTE WHO SUES HER CLIENTS AFTER SHE HAS BEEN PAID FOR THE PURPOSES OF INCREASED FAME &/OR FORTUNE, HAVING NO REAL REDEEMING MORAL VALUE.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST PIECE OF CRAP EVER. COMPLETE SMOKE & MIRRORS & STONE WALLING. #FoxNews Updated Jun 7, 2018, 7:31 PM Ted Cooper MAPPING SPACE-TIME. DO IRRATIONAL NUMBERS IMPLY AN IRRATIONAL VIRTUAL SPACE? http://www.trcooper.com/Science/SPT.html The definition of an IRRATIONAL NUMBER is a number, IN ANY INTEGER BASED NUMBER SYSTEM, for which there exist no integers p and q such that the ratio between p and q is the desired number. All rational numbers can be expressed as fractions of integer numbers. Not so with irrational numbers. Just because a number has an unending decimal point in one number system does not mean that it is irrational. It may be that 1/3 = .3333333.... is unending, but it is still a rational number. WHY? Because, if we are using a base 3 number system, then 1/3 = .10 (not .3333...) .BUT PI, THE RATIO OF THE CIRCUMFERENCE TO DIAMETER OF A CIRCLE, IS IRRATIONAL NO MATTER THE INTEGER NUMBER SYSTEM. When it comes to measuring REAL DISTANCES (or lengths), the unit of measure must be a rational number, because YOU CAN NEVER TRAVEL AN IRRATIONAL DISTANCE. It is physically impossible. But when we consider a wheel traveling down the road, we know that the VIRTUAL DISTANCE IT TRAVELS is computed to be d4 = 2 x PI x r x R with both r (wheel radius) & R (number of revolutions) being rational distances. BUT d4 IS A VIRTUAL DISTANCE, BECAUSE A RATIONAL TIMES AN IRRATIONAL IS IRRATIONAL. THEREFORE, THE REALITY IS THAT d4 IS A LITTLE BIT SHORTER & JUMPS OVER THE VIRTUAL DISTANCE EXPRESSED BY THE EQUATION TO THE NEXT AVAILABLE REAL DISTANCE. THUS IT WOULD SEEM THAT SPACE MIGHT HAVE SOME UNIDENTIFIED POINTS THAT CANNOT BE PHYSICALLY LOCATED DUE TO THE DISTANCE FROM THE ORIGIN BEING VIRTUAL (IRRATIONAL) INSTEAD OF REAL (RATIONAL). However, we can still portray real distances along the X-AXIS of a graph verses virtual distances expressed in terms of Revolutions along the R-AXIS. Updated Jun 8, 2018, 1:49 AM Ted Cooper NO.

Updated May 31, 2018, 12:00 PM Ted Cooper THINKING OF NEWTON & EINSTEIN. WE ARE BLESSED BY THESE 2 MEN OF SCIENCE (Along with Galileo & Maxwell) What made Newton great was the diverse number of things he was able to achieve at a period in history where there was little in the way of prior knowledge. What made Einstein great was that he was able to put the chaotic world out of his mind: WWI, marriage, children, divorce, etc. I wish I could have come close to even doing half that much. Here is Einstein's view of space-time. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity So what do we laymen know so far? Facts according to science: "Gravity has an infinite range". "The faster the speed, the greater the increase in mass". "It is impossible to attain the speed of light because the mass keeps on increasing to resist any further acceleration." "Black holes are a reality & exist as bounded singularities composed of highly compressed & dense mass with inescapable gravitational pull". "Dark matter exerting the pull of gravity is a proven fact". "The farther you are from a source of gravity, the faster your clock runs". (How does this compare with the TWIN PARADOX?) "The Expansion of the universe is accelerating." "The universe is 14 billion years old". "SPIN is a form of constant acceleration". "Gravity is a form of acceleration". "Some QUANTUM PARTICLES are identified by SPIN". "E=MC**" And then there is "G(u,v) = ((8*pi*G)/c****)*T(u,v)" = EINSTEINS LAW OF GRAVITY Where T(u,v) = the STRESS-ENERGY TENSOR (whatever that is) G = Newton's Gravitational Constant pi = 3.14...... Constant c = The Speed Of Light Constant G(u,v) = Gravity at a point in space? (Who knows?) My questions are : WHAT IS T(u,v), G(u,v), u & v ? IS THIS A 2-DIMENSION MATRIX EQUATION with u & v being different locations in space-time? OR ARE G & T FUNCTIONS OF VARIABLES u & v? It would really be nice if mathematicians would at least identify up front the variables in the equations they present without assuming we know what the hell they are referring to. Perhaps it's a closed secret available only to the elite, just like all of those "undisclosed sources" or "classified informations" that the media & intell community keep hiding under, & designed to make everyone (but them) look like an idiot. "I've got a secret & you don't know it. Ha, Ha, Ha". ABOUT TENSOR INDEXES & NOTATION https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricci_calculus INDEXES OF THE FORM 1,2,3 RELATE TO VECTORS. INDEXES OF THE FORM X,Y,Z RELATE TO 3-DIMENSIONAL SPACIAL DISTANCE. INDEXES OF THE FORM X,Y,Z,T & GREEK LETTERS RELATE TO SPACE-TIME. Covariant = (Mathematics) a variant that changes leaving interrelations with another variant (or variants) unchanged Covariant tensor components A lower index (subscript) indicates covariance of the components with respect to that index: {\displaystyle A_{\alpha \beta \gamma \cdots }} A_{\alpha\beta\gamma \cdots} Contravariant tensor components An upper index (superscript) indicates contravariance of the components with respect to that index: {\displaystyle A^{\alpha \beta \gamma \cdots }} A^{\alpha\beta\gamma \cdots} Mixed-variance tensor components A tensor may have both upper and lower indices: {\displaystyle A_{\alpha }{}^{\beta }{}_{\gamma }{}^{\delta \cdots }.} {\displaystyle A_{\alpha }{}^{\beta }{}_{\gamma }{}^{\delta \cdots }.} . . . ABOUT DARK ENERGY & DARK MATTER? We tend to think of the universe as an inflatable balloon. But the push of dark energy & the pull dark matter (gravity) make it seem more like a spring, and quite possibly a spring that is oscillating between compression & expansion. At the current time our universe is observed to be accelerating outwards with no end in sight. But consider a highly compressed spring tied down at one end & that has just been released. From the point of it being released to its state of equilibrium there is obviously acceleration. 14 billion years since the Big Bang, is it not possible that universe has not reached its state of equilibrium & is still accelerating outwards? And then there is inertia, the property of matter to continue in a state of unchanged motion. It is resistance to a change in motion. Einstein's theory says that as the speed of a body increases, so does it's mass, which would result in a greater pull of gravity. Perhaps a black hole is the result of a body speeding so fast beyond other bodies that it invariably pulls the other bodies closer to it, something like a worm whose head moves first with its behind catching up, much the same as an oscillating spring. . Updated Jun 3, 2018, 1:13 PM Ted Cooper updated his status. Liberals are a COMPLETE JOKE & IGNORANT. In decrying stereotyping, they engage in the worst kind of stereotyping. Why? For political purposes and simply because it makes them feel good about themselves. It is called SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS & PRIDE. There is NOTHING JUST ABOUT THEM. Ted Cooper John Cox sounds just like another Meg Whitman or Arnold Schwarzenegger & we know what happened there. I voted for Trump, because he stood on the issues, not because he was a rich elite business man. Trump proved he stood on principles, not making more money. This guy Cox is as wishy,washy,mushy on the issues as Schwarzenegger, Meg Whitman & Romney. In the face of extreme adversity, this guy's judgment is as questionable as General McClellan. Until I hear a SOLID "NO MORE ILLEGALS", this guy can take a hike. Simply saying you are not for sanctuary cities is NOT ENOUGH. The definition of insanity is to keep doing what keeps failing. And weak Republicans keep favoring wealth & money over principles. Fearful Republicans are going to loose again if they vote for Cox & in so doing they will be selling out the citizens of this state in their useless attempts to compromise. We've watched it happen over & over again. ""Oh!" you say. "But the polls show blah blah blah". RIght. And who is conducting the polls? We learned in the Presidential election that the polls don't mean a damn thing. IT IS TIME TO CHANGE. VOTE FOR WHAT YOU STAND FOR, NOT BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID OF LOSING. I'm going with Travis Allen, EVEN THOUGH THIS ELECTION IS COMPLETELY RIGGED BY DEMOCRATS.

No Parking less than 1/2 mile away. Parking lot constantly full. 2. POOR APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING. People standing in line outside for hour to keep their appointment. Then standing in line for hours just to make an application out. 3. UNDER STAFFED. NO STANDING IN-LINE ASSISTANTS. NO APPARENT OVERALL FACILITY MANAGEMENT OVERSIGHT TO TELL PEOPLE "WHAT'S GOING ON". PEOPLE WERE STANDING FOR AN HOUR BEFORE ANYONE SAID THERE HAD BEEN A SYSTEM CRASH & WE NEED TO SEND YOU HOME. 4. POOR GUIDE POSTS & NO DIRECTIONAL SIGNS. YOU ARE TOLD TO GO TO THE RED CARPET & STAND IN-LINE SOME MORE, BUT THERE ARE RED CARPETS ALL OVER THE PLACE. THE 1ST STOP IS IN THE BACK BEHIND EVERYTHING ELSE WHERE YOU 1ST MAKE OUT AN APPLICATION. Applications should be submitted over internet from home. 5. MORE LONG WAITING. After making out application you are given a call number & forced to wait some more until your number is called to a specific window. Give another hour for that. 6. LACK OF UP FRONT INSTRUCTIONAL COMMUNICATION. NOT UNTIL YOU GET TO A WINDOW WHERE THEY ASK FOR MONEY DO THEY TELL YOU "NO CREDIT CARDS". This was a TOTAL NIGHTMARE. Having made an appointment & after standing for 2 hours, we were told to come back on another day. I left there barely able to walk with a huge backache. They gave out quick passes which they said will circumvent standing in line again. WRONG! Going back there again the next day, I had to first park over 1/2 mile away again, then stand in line for Window #1 again. From Window #1 I was sent to Window #10 where I took an eye test. Then the clerk said$35 please. But they do not take credit cards which was all I had with me. I had to go back home, get some cash, & return to the GOD AWFUL PLACE, again parking far away. But this time I got a little quicker service and finally out of there.

All this thanks to Jerry Brown who has thrown so much overload crap at the DMV & who wants a bullet train so he can avoid the mess he has created in this state.

There are appropriate limits to forgiveness to prevent inappropriate forgiveness & continued wrongfull behavior. Not properly admonishing/disciplining your mischievous children is inappropriate forgiveness Living with an abusive spouse is inappropriate forgiveness. Ignoring the trespassing of illegal migrants & creating sanctuary city/states is inappropriate forgiveness. Not to waterboard a well proven terrorist is inappropriate forgiveness. Not to execute a well proven murderer is inappropriate forgiveness. Inappropriate forgiveness turns a blind eye to unjust behavior & becomes complicit with injustice.

On the other hand, not to properly, proportinately & timely forgive is also unjust. There is a time for war and a time for peace.

STEFAN HALPER AS A SPY ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN???

POLITICS MAKES FOR STRANGE BED FELLOWS & ABUSE OF POWER. It can be as irrational & inexplicable as a high school student who goes into a shooting rampage.

Looking at Halper's background, it makes very little sense for him to spy upon a Republican candidate. Nevertheless, he may be a Bush loyalist who shares anger against Trump & more than willing to be hired for hundreds of thousands of dollars by a politically biased Brennan who was probably more in bed with Obama than Clapper. Upon listening to his opinion expressed to the BBC in 2017, it would seem that Halper's political opinion is definitely biased.

Obama, Clapper, & Brennan made government payments to Halper in Sept 2016 to spy on Trump campaign & Jul 2017 to spy on Trump Presidency. Those actions were not in the name of "national security". They were a covert spy operation worse than Water Gate for the purposes of preserving political power contrary to the will of the people. More than likely, the chain of command & flow would be from Obama to Brennan, from Brennan to Clapper, from Clapper to DOJ, from DOJ to FBI, ie, a complete frame up job of smoke & mirrors originating with Obama in seeking to maintain Democratic Party control of the nation, supported by Trump-hating Republicans willing to risk the welfare of the nation in a beyond-reason waiting game for their next turn at bat.

Being in US intelligence & now in Britain, Halper may know Christopher Steele? But his reporting would have been downstream from Christopher Steele who was hired by Washington Free Beacon in late 2015 & DNC in mid 2016. So t is highly doubtful that he could unbiasedly corroborate the salacious Steele dossier.

THERE HAS BEEN FAR TOO MUCH CLOAK & DAGGER CRAP IN THIS ENTIRE AFFAIR, FAR TOO MUCH "IN THE NAME OF NATIONAL SECURITY", FAR TOO MUCH "CLASSIFIED SECRECY", FAR TOO MUCH "UNDISCLOSED SOURCES". IT IS ALL SMOKE & MIRRORS CRAP! IT IS TIME FOR THE ACCUSERS TO COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK WITH THEIR EVIDENCE/WITNESSES & PUT UP OR SHUT UP.

Rush Limbaugh offers THE MOST LOGICAL EXPLANATION OF HOW A LEGITIMATE INVESTIGATION EVOLVED INTO A POLITICAL NARRATIVE TO PROTECT HILLARY CLINTON.

1. The hack into John Podesta's email was his own fault in responding to a PHISHING attempt by an unknown hacker.
2. HOWEVER, the hack into the DNC server COULD NOT HAVE BEEN OVER THE INTERNET AS INITIALLY REPORTED BY CROWDSTRIKE, AND THEREFORE NOT A "RUSSIAN" HACK AS ALLEGED. INSTEAD IT HAD TO BE AN INSIDE JOB BASED UPON THE EXTREMELY HIGH SPEEDS OF DATA TRANSFER THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE OVER THE INTERNET.
Rush notes that the Pakistani tech guys (Iwan brothers ?) working for Debbie W. Schultz (who have now escaped back to Pakistan) would be the most likely perps.

When coupled with Hillary's internet abuse & negligence, it would seem that everything connected with the Hillary campaign was reflective of an arrogant irresponsible mentality, WHICH HAS CREATED A HOAX TO HIDE ITS OWN LACKINGS & DECEITFULLY OFFER AN EXCUSE FOR UNLAWFULLY USING LAW ENFORCEMENT (UNDER FALLACIOUS COLOR OF LAW) TO UNDO THE ELECTION RESULT & CONTRARY TO THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. Had high level law enforcement not been in bed with Hillary & the liberal media & instead properly prosecuted Hillary when it was learned she violated the law in using her own personal server for government business, our system would not look so foolish & hypocritical to the rest of the world. In addition, PEOPLE WHO HAVE SINCE BEEN UNJUSTLY PERSECUTED WOULD NOT BE UNNECESSARILY SUFFERING AS THEY NOW ARE.

BALONEY! Not according to the Apostle Paul! Where we wish the Catholic head well, we hope & pray he does not endorse a new Guy Fawkes subversion and attack upon Protestant values. Such an effort would be contrary to belief in Christ AS LORD & SAVIOR & play into the hands of CHRISTIPHOBIC muslims who reject Christ. NO RELIGIOUS BELIEF SHOULD GO OVERBOARD TO PROTECT CRIMINAL OR UNNATURAL BEHAVIOR, SUCH AS CHILD MOLESTATION OR HOMOSEXUALITY, UNDER THE GUISE OF UNFETTERED "LOVE". There are times when TOUGH LOVE is the call of one's duty to mankind. Admonishing child molestors & homosexuals is one of those times.

In addition, no martyrdom is valid if it unjustly & aggressively gives up life for the purposes of murdering innocent people to make a statement. "There is no love greater than he who gives up his life on behalf of his friends" does not include the deliberate indiscriminate suicide bombing of innocent people, albeit unintended collateral damage does occur by those justifiably protecting their own after being unjustly attacked.

FORCED ATTENDANCE in public schools puts children directly into harms way & prevents parents from using alternative methods of educating their children. It is a COMPLETELY OBSOLETE method of education that may have worked well in the horse & buggy days, but is now being used as a cheap (but dangerous) form of baby sitting, as well as political indoctrination . Children in public schools are not only exposed to bullying (as was always the case), but now child molestation by teachers, political propagandizing by teachers, drug sellers & shootings.

The internet provides a viable alternative for education, making physical presence unnecessary. It also allows parents to better protect their children from such terrible events that can damage for life.

Mueller's investigation goes FAR BEYOND his authority to look into the alleged conspiracy to defraud voters, regardless of what this so-called judge says. It is a dangerous tactic to conflate what is alleged to be long past money laundering (probably based upon allegations that Manafort tried to hide money from being taxed long ago) with completely unrelated allegations of rigging the 2016 election. IT IS A MOST DANGEROUS ATTEMPT TO IMPOSE GUILT BY ASSOCIATION, WHICH IF ALLOWED TO CONTINUE, WILL RESULT IN A GOVERNMENT THAT CAN UNJUSTLY PERSECUTE ANYONE AT ITS SLIGHTEST WHIM..

If Manafort is to be prosecuted for money laundering (which the DOJ investigated back in 2008 & did not prosecute) , then the prosecution should not be commingled with any prosecution of election rigging. Otherwise, the government itself becomes guilty of "justice laundering". The length of time allowed for any such prosecutorial investigation should be restricted to time limits proportional to the amount of alleged damage done. Certainly, investigations into murder should be allowed to continue for as long as it takes. But lesser crimes do not demand an endless search. And certainly lesser white collar crimes do not require or justify the government coming to your house to bust down the doors in the middle of the night & tear up your home.

This Mueller investigation is operating hypocritically & unjustly under the color of law. It needs to be stopped, NOW.

AFRICANIZED BEES

The liberal media has become nothing more than a bunch of Africanized bees. They swarm and viciously attack at whatever does not suit their agenda. They are dangerous to a free society. The following report of a man "attacking" a woman wearing muslim garb is an example..

THIS IS PURE BULL SHIT! THE ULTIMATE BIGOTRY IS THE MUSLIM RELIGION REJECTING JESUS CHRIST, IE, CHRISTIPHOBIA. Did Muhammad ever heal anyone the way Jesus did? Did Muhammad ever love & forgive the way Jesus did? Did Muhammad ever come back to life the way Jesus did, offering peace, purpose & hope for mankind? Hell no. All Muhammad ever did was to have dreams which someone else wrote down. He never accepted Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior. But he sure could violently conquer others.

In this country, we learned long ago not to be in each others faces with our individual religious beliefs. But muslims insist on being in our faces with their religion which is clearly the case when they actively wear clothes that advocate their religion in RELIGIOUS FREE ZONES . For them civility is preempted by ideology.

THE MUSLIM IDEOLOGY/RELIGION IS THE MOST NAZI-LIKE LINE OF POLITICAL THOUGHT TODAY. THE WOMAN IN THIS ARTICLE MIGHT AS WELL BE WEARING A NAZI UNIFORM. IT IS AS INDECENT, INAPPROPRIATE & OFFENSIVE AS IF SHE WERE RUNNING AROUND IN THE NUDE. IT IS A SYMBOL OF RESISTANCE TO ACCEPTING AMERICAN CULTURE WHICH HAS ADOPTED HER. They may think they are smart in quoting our Bible, BUT THE FACT IS, AS JESUS SAID "BY THEIR FRUITS YOU WILL KNOW THEM". And quite frankly, time & time again the fruits of muslims have proven throughout history to be violence which ABSOLUTELY SUCKS.

Of course the organized religion of Christianity has not been the historic picture of perfect health. It is hard enough for Christians to get along with other Christians. Witness the recent clashes between Catholic & Protestant in Ireland. BUT THEY DO HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON THAT ENABLES THEM TO STAND EACH OTHER, IE, JESUS CHRIST. CHRISTIANITY IS FAR CLEANER TODAY THAN THE MUSLIM IDEOLOGY/RELIGION WHICH COMPLETELY REJECTS JESUS CHRIST .

Muslim advocates are the perpetrators of civil disobedience, conflict & altercation. They always have been & always will be. There is not one non-muslim country in the world that has not been assaulted by the muslim past & continuing violent disobedience. Against Gandhi's will, India had to be partitioned because muslims could not get along, & so they were given their own land in Pakistan & Bangladesh. Israel, despite an overwhelming attack by the muslim states, granted back territory to the Palestinians. But is any of this good enough for the muslim world. HELL NO. THEY WANT IT ALL. That they have their own countries of origin should satisfy them. But oh no, they have to impose on other countries & other cultures, beginning with their violent invasion of Africa where Christianity had already taken root back in the 1st millennium.

Today, they come crawling into our country under allegations of being peaceful. They hide under claims of religious freedom, when in fact they subscribe to Sharia Law which goes back to the equivalence our of religious Blue Laws eliminated from our government centuries ago. This stands in direct opposition to separation of church and state. They think religious freedom means they can do what they want when they want and where they want, failing to recognize that religious freedom is simply a protection against being persecuted by the government for their theology, not protection of their behavior. They want to exercise their alleged religious rites in the work place, thereby imposing their religion on others in the work environment. They want to impose their religion in our universities which are publicly supported by tax-payer money. In the end, when they cannot get their own way, they ultimately revert to their belief in Jihad. They are nothing less than "WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING".

Well we have news for them. THEY CAN'T HAVE IT ALL! It is time to put a stop to it. And the smartest thing we can do is to NOT LET THEM INTO OUR COUNTRY IN THE FIRST PLACE. It is the only way to avert scenes such as this that will eventually lead to violence & civil war within our own country. The reason we have sovereign borders is to separate clashing cultures. Anyone who believes in world-wide homogeneity is ABSOLUTELY NUTS. All this mentality will ever achieve is the distribution of violence throughout the world. Never will there ever be a safe zone for any form of humanity to exist free from violence. We have already seen this to be true in our own backyard, because of our politicians negligence to exploit our gentle natures.

Oh yes, the deficient liberal mentality might point saying "Look here. Here is a current example of homogeneous success". They might point to a little place in Spain where muslims & non-muslims once dwelt in peace. But that is just one little exception to the general rule. THEY CONVENIENTLY ENTIRELY IGNORE & EXCLUDE THE OVERWHELMING FACTS OF HISTORY. SUCH "IGNORANCE" IS JUST THAT, "IGNORANCE".

In addition, to construe religious thought with race is an ABSOLUTE FARCE. Religious thought is a choice, not something that the individual cannot change, such as color of skin. To construe religious thought with race is to SELFISHLY EXPLOIT the errors of our past which have been corrected as expressed by Kanye West. Race is MIDDLE EASTERN, NOT MUSLIM. RACE IS HEBREW NOT JEW. RACE IS CAUCASIAN, NOT CHRISTIAN. RACE IS BLACK, NOT VOOODO. RACE IS ASIAN, NOT BUDDHIST. etc, etc.

On the other hand, IMMEDIATE BEHAVIOR is of concern to all. To say "I don't like you" is one thing & a right of free speech. To physically attack is quite another. "Sticks & stones, may break my bones, but words will never hurt" is the old saying that has been recognized in this country for years.
It is what allows us to carry on with rancorous political thought without anyone really being hurt. But today we seem to have a bunch of WHIMPS SEEKING TO CURTAIL THE EXPRESSION OF THOUGHT WHICH LEADS TO THOUGHT CONTROL. IF "HATE SPEECH" IS EVER CODIFIED INTO LAW THEN THIS COUNTRY WILL CEASE TO EXIST AS A FREE NATION. We have already seen this development in terms of "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS". It fails to recognize that civility can coexist with admonishment as an expression of dislike.

From this video, it is hard to determine who started the inappropriate behavior. But certainly the woman's dress is offensive behavior & she would know that it is offensive. And he made a simple comment "is this Halloween?" After that she continued to assail him, with him turning his back on her & refusing to talk anymore. She could have easily disengaged at that point. But instead she continued to advance the altercation. It is clear that she is trying to shove her religion in his face. In the absence of any thing proceeding this video, the woman is the aggressor & inciting confrontation .

When our children do something wrong, we admonish them. It is my impression that this man was doing nothing more than admonishing the woman with a simple comment for which he was assailed relentlessly.. But then again if he physically assaulted her, then he should be removed from the premises.

Melania Trump = A MOST ELEGANT 1ST LADY. We pray she has the strength to weather the evil & most inappropriate assault by the liberal left upon her marriage.

In the search for truth, what the lying liberal left does not get & abuses is that there is "APPROPRIATE TRUTH TELLING" and "INAPPROPRIATE TRUTH TELLING". .Responsible parents do not tell their children the bare naked truth of every little thing, because it can hurt them. Neither should outsiders tell the spouse of an infidel partner about the infidelities of their partner unless asked. To do so is INAPPROPRIATE TRUTH TELLING, the true motives of which are highly suspicious and questionable.

In the case of the Stormy Daniels "MATTER", there is very strong & good reason to believe that it is entirely fraudulent, slanderous & made up for the purposes of ruining Trump's marriage marriage. It has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUMP EFFECTIVENESS AS POTUS today. The alleged matter happened so long ago that it is inconsequential and irrelevant. It is a DELIBERATE AND MALICIOUS ATTACK UPON TRUMP'S MARRIAGE, NOT UPON HIS PRESIDENCY. As such, the lying liberal left should be condemned by all. Have they no shame?

The lying liberal left has no problem in hiding (via redacting) the truth about their own abuse of power, yet in the name of "truth" they have no problem babbeling about things that are none of their business in the first place, ie, INAPPROPRIATE TRUTH TELLING, and that have absolutely no bearing upon the duties or performance of the POTUS. Were the POTUS to engaged in inappropriate behavior within the abodes provided by the tax payer, such as BILL CLINTON, then it would correctly become a public matter. But such is not the case with the Trump presidency.

There is no question that Edward Kennedy obstructed justice & destroyed evidence (all done more recently in the same manner by Hillary Clinton). There is no question that he lied about swimming across the channel when he actually took a boat. What is troubling is the possibility that Edward may have actually deliberately murdered Mary Jo. The movie depicts a policeman coming upon Edward's car parked just before the accident in a wooded area, then with the car speeding off when he spotted the policeman. And then the "accident" wherein Edward was able to get out of the car but Mary Jo was not. Something is very wrong with this whole picture. But of course, we are suppose to believe his complete bullshit, because after all, he is among the elite, & they are not to be questioned.

It would appear that Edward was given a pass riding on the shirt tails of his 2 brothers' assassinations. And despite this, he never gave an apology to Mary Jo's family. That in itself shows the complete lack of character of Edward. A reopening of the case would help clarify unanswered questions, but one must question the practicality at this point in time, given the mess this country is in To identify yourself as a republican or democrat today is to accept the wrong doing of both parties.

Back in the 70's, it is understandable that people wanted a return to Camelot. But remember that Camelot was undone by King Arthur's own son. And Camelot went out the door the day Jerry Brown & our so-called "justice" system allowed Sirhan Sirhan to get off the hook. What is really surprising is that all of the high powered democratic political figures that put a large amount of effort into protecting Edward & his family name would have done much better had they instead put that same effort into getting Sirhan Sirhan executed.

There seems to be a lack of guts to do the right thing on the part of liberals. They continue to throw out smoke screens, bearing false witness, rewriting history and making false allegations, all in the name of a phony self righteous compassion (actually empathy, not compassion) & in their continuing attempts to cover up the truth and steal power away from the citizens of this country.

How IRONICALLY HYPOCRITICAL. This guy should be hung
(meaning castrated & hanged for those who make light of meaning).. "Oh how terrible?". You think I should give a rats ass what happens to this guy? You have no right to judge me unless you give me the same powers as Governor Brown. But that a'int never going to happen.

Do you really think God cares about him? It was God that gave the authority to use capital punishment in the 1st place. Jesus did not overturn that law. Brown has allowed far more than an eye or a tooth to be taken. He is now allowing the stealing of an entire state that was bought & paid for by the Federal Government.

You want to hate me for hating this bastard, go right ahead. But I have plenty of reason to, because this guy is no better than the murderers he released. And because of it millions of innocent people have suffered enough. In short, Jerry Brown is the wolf in sheep's clothing against whom Jesus warned.

Brown is today's modern Herod & Caiaphas wrapped up in one. If you really enjoy having you children molested and murdered, if you really enjoy giving up your home, state, & nation, then by all means, continue to support Brown. You can feel good about yourself, because it is no skin off your nose, is it. And that is really what it is all about, "feeling good about yourself", isn't it. You can feel good about giving your country away to those poor suffering foreigners, never minding who really owns the country and the damage done,
not to mention the diminishing example of goodness that is eroded away. Jesus never said to steal from the rich and give to the poor. He said, "If you can, voluntarily & justifiably give what you can to the poor". But do not take from others jto give to someone else just to make yourself look good. Al Capone did as much with his soup kitchens.

I do not enjoy demonizing others the way Brown does. But wrong is evil, and consorting with evil is evil. Real Christians don't stand for evil. Christians have real shame for the wrong they have done directly against others. Jerry Brown is an arrogant bastard that has no shame and consistently imposes his wrong doing on others..

The key question is "Are they citizens or are they not"? If they are not citizens, then they need to be deported. If they are citizens, the next question is "Are they criminals or not"? If they are, then to what extent are they criminals? In other words, do they deserve humane treatment or not. It is not rational to say "Oh those poor suffering folk. We need to help them lest we become hateful bigots". That is PURE BS.

Presumably. the government is suppose to protect citizens from invasion. But if the government neglects or refuses to do its job, then obviously we don't have a government & it is every man for himself, hence the demand for maintaining the 2nd amendment.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO QUESTION THAT OUR SO-CALLED "DEMOCRATIC" GOVERNMENT IS COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR TODAY'S OUT-OF-CONTROL INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY BY ILLEGALS. TODAY, IT IS NOT "DEMOCRATIC" BEING COMPLETELY OVERRUN AND CONTROLLED BY THE LIBERAL COURT(S). AND THE RESULTING IMPACT FINDS A DIMINISHING RETURN TO THE CITIZEN FOR ITS SUPPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT, IE,. THE INCREASED USE, DEPLETION & UNAVAILABILITY OF RESOURCES INCLUDING WATER, HIGHWAYS/ROADS, SHELTER, JAILS, SEWERS, CLEAN ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH FACILITIES, EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES, ETC.... NOT TO MENTION THE INCREASE IN TAXES, THE DILUTION OF CITIZEN VOTES, AND PRESSURES IMPOSED UPON CITIZENS RESULTING IN INDIVIDUAL BREAKDOWN AND THE INABILITY TO PROVIDE FOR ONE'S SELF. If there is "insanity" one look no further than the state for the cause.

There is no parable, rule or law that says if others unknown to you are in the toilet, then you have to jump in with them. (The newsman does not have to stand in waste-high storm water where he could be electrocuted in order to do his job of reporting.) And there is a huge difference between genuine compassion & feigned empathy for political purposes. Genuine compassion is not irresponsibly neglectful of giving justifiable support when possible. (Notice the words "justifiable" & "possible".) Genuine compassion does not deny justifiable support by giving to those who are undeserving. On the other hand, empathy requires no justifiable action or inaction. It can turn into nothing more than cheap talk & political ruse, ie, "actions speak louder than words", "put YOUR money (not others money) where your mouth is", "Walk the talk", ..... Even then, such "giving" can be deception. Al Capone opened soup kitchens to show what a good guy he was. BS! Jesus said "When you pray, pray in privacy". In a similar manner, when you give, give in private. Do not make a display of your alleged goodness.

In short, I want a place for those CITIZENS WHO ARE INNOCENT OF ANY SERIOUS WRONG DOING & SCREW THE REST, BECAUSE THEY DON'T DESERVE IT AND SHOULD BE EITHER IN JAIL &/OR DEPORTED. The Good Samaritan did not give to the thugs who beat & robbed the victim. No, he gave to the legitimate victim. THAT IS REAL HUMANITARIANISM.

Communication requires a speaker & a listener.
And it must be synchronous. ie, 2 way with appropriate protocol.
Communication is a fundamental part of common understanding. And understanding is a fundamental part of knowing.

Communication is based upon agreement in language.
There are many languages, but one is more "conventional"
and more capable of depicting the truth which is reality.

Language is made up in part of writing & phonic symbology.
And symbology can be reduced to encrypted binary numbers,
0 or 1, yes or no.

Rules can only be expressed in writing or phonic symbology.

A beautiful thing about language is that it enables the
traversing of vast stretches of time, thereby enabling
a one way communication with those who have past away.
Prayer may be an important part of communication .
And there are many languages through which it is expressed.
That early Christians were said to speak in tongues may not be the joke that some mock.

And then there is Robert De Niro who said, "You speaking to me? If you are not speaking to me, then who in the hell are you talking to?"

Needless to say, both the good and the bad can employ the language(s). Unfortunately, the bad have very limited vocabularies only knowing the "F" word which is extensively used in today's movies to a fault. Actually it represents a breakdown in communication.

Closely related to this is "belief" which depends upon one's ability (or inability) to connect communicated projections of the future with one's past experiences. "Faith" is reliance upon the words of another, ie, "trust".

The key question is:
Did Facebook receive money or political favor for providing customer information without customer consent? Is Facebook a provider of conversation or is it a participant? The mere fact of silence (unless prolonged) is not an admission of guilt.

As with all contested matters & for the purpose of avoiding slanderous allegations, DUE DILIGENCE & PROCESS IS A REQUIREMENT. The jury must be out until all evidence & testimony is in, with frivolous charges dismissed, including those contrary to reason & the preponderance of past innocent historical behavior taken in relationship to the degree of harm done as a result of the the alleged offense.

Intentional & irreversible crimes resuiting in death of an innocent person who has not given their consent should require irreversible punishment (not exceeding the crime) & for which there should be no forgiveness, lest justice not be served..

For Lent, I'm running out of things to give up.
There is an old joke that goes like this:
1. The young person says "Boy I sure had a good lay last night".
2. The middle aged person says "Boy I sure had a good sleep last night".
3. The old person says "Boy, I sure had a good crap last night".
Being beyond old, I can attest to the veracity of this joke.

I have begun a list of things I have given up over my life time.
When I first became married, I gave up several friendships.
When I became a father, I gave up surfing.
When the 1st wife screwed up big time on me, I divorced.
When the 2nd wife effectively asked me to give up my children, I divorced.
When the 3rd wife turned out to be a whimp in the face of adversity, I divorced again. After 3 marriages & several disappointments, I stopped dating a long time ago.
And after that last marriage, I stopped pursuing my bachelors degree having the equivalent of 120 semester units.
I stopped going to Disneyland after the kids grew up.
I use to enjoy playing tennis, but after a broken achillies tendon I stopped playing that.
I use to enjoy playing guitar, but after getting carpel tunnel, i gave that up.
I use to enjoy sailing, but that fell by the wayside too.
Sex went bye bye after 60 by choice.
I got a real estate brokers license, but that was boring.
Having acquired enough financial resources by working to be self sufficient, but having been screwed out of more money than I needed, I stopped investing.
I had an RV, but that is now gone.
I have done enough travel to satisfy my interest.
I have given up TV because the mass media is so disgusting.
More recently, I have given up on eating too muich.
So there has been a lot I have given up.
But you know something.
I AM DOING QUITE WELL WITHOUT ALL OF THAT FOREGOING CRAP! Keeping it simple is the best cure for what-ever ails you.

There are just TWO THINGS I WILL NOT GIVE UP.
1. BRIDGE.
2. NOT LETTING A GOVERNMENT THAT IS SUPPOSE TO PROTECT ME AND MY FAMILY FROM FOREIGN INVADERS, TRESPASSERS, MURDERERS, TERRORISTS & OTHER COUNTRIES THREATENING NUCLEAR WAR GET AWAY WITH NOT DOING ITS JOB THROUGH ITS LAZY, SELF RIGHTEOUS, POWER SEEKING NEGLIGENCE .
Those two things I will never give up.

PHONY LIBERAL EMPATHY vs. TRUE CONSERVATIVE COMPASSION

Liberals exercise a SELFISH LAZY COMPASSION (EMPATHY) where Conservatives exercise ENGAGING HARD WORK COMPASSION. What does that mean? It means that liberals are too damn lazy to go to the other person's house to help them, which arouses the suspicion that they really do not have compassion. "Sure come on to my house & I'll help you, But I am too lazy or fearful to go to your house".

On the other hand, Conservatives, such as the churches, go to the other person's house (in the form of "missions") to help with true compassion. Another example of Conservatives going the extra mile is clearly portrayed in the movie, 12 STRONG, the true story of the first VERY BRAVE AMERICAN SOLDIERS going into Afghanistan (after 911) to help the Northern Alliance defeat an overwhelmingly numerous Taliban.

An Interesting Sermon Today From The President Of Fuller Seminary.

The message was on "remembering" vs. choosing what "not to remember". It was obviously delivered to a congregation upset by the firing of their beloved Minister Of Music. But beyond that it applied to far more reaching circumstances.

Where he did not come right out and say it, one might assume that the gist of his message was "forgive & forget". In my own set of circumstances, how does one forget the evil bull shit of a judge telling two small children, whose mother has been murdered by her husband before their very eyes, to quote "forgive & forget"? Such a message is absolute crap. How does one forget (let alone forgive) a father who deprives his children of their rightful inheritance from their mother after murdering his wife? And how does one forgive and forget the same murderer for making a mockery of Christian values by sending a letter from prison containing a picture of himself with other inmates on which is written "good clean cut Christian boys"? It's bullshit that allows the Cross of Jesus Christ to be spit upon & an insult to every good Christian human being. Are we really to forget 911? Are we really to forget the mass shooting at Ft Hood? Are we really to forget the beheading of Nick Berg? I don't think so.

There are those who quote "Vengeance is Mine alone sayeth the Lord". And there are those who claim to be Christian, yet commit vile acts, thus turning the Cross into a form of "sheep's clothing". But the overall message of the Bible is clear, ie, we are not to commit evil (extreme wrong doing), we are not to side with evil, we are not to be unjust, we are not to hide under the Cross, etc. In other words, WE ARE NOT TO TOLERATE EVIL EITHER IN OURSELVES OR IN OTHERS. Yet that is exactly what our society has been doing now ever since that idiot, Truman Capote, wrote his novel, In Cold Blood & therein condemning society at large for it s alleged cruelty.. "Forgive and Forget" is a most ugly message to any victim of violent crime and is more cruel than the death itself in that the wounds inflicted never heal & unjustly extend through a life time.

But in his sermon that insulting message was not delivered.
No, instead his message pertained more to our memory of evil & blaming God. In my mind, it is clear that we are not to blame God for the evil that befalls us. The Book of Job makes this clear. Many people today blame God for their conditions. To them I would say, "Have you never created something, only to have it go awry?". We humans create missiles with self destruct mechanisms built in. Do you not suppose God is smart enough to do the same?

So when it comes to forgiveness & forgetting, I forgive God & do not blame Him. But I do not forgive or forget the evils that mankind does. Not that every little thing needs to be remembered and held onto. But when it comes to unjustified homicide, that cannot and should not ever be tolerated/forgiven/forgotten , with capital punishment (not life in prison) being the appropriate justice (not vengeance) meted out. Anything less than that is siding with evil.

A Simple Lesson In The Morality Of Humanity For Liberals.

Doing the "right" thing for the "right" people is the morally correct and just thing to do.

Doing the "right" thing for the "wrong" people is to be hypocritical and unjust.

In addition, action speaks louder than words. It is not enough to say "I feel love for humanity" without it being backed up by moral and just action.

Trump's lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship?
My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”
We right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.
We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as Ronald Reagan?
We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?
And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky.
I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”
The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today. The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.
During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”
General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”
That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.
Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.
Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” ... Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.
It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up. So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!
God Bless America!!!

A Different Way Of Looking At Time.

We tend to look at time as being the same absolute independent continuous unending physical entity as being the same for all things and everyone else. But suppose that is not the case. Suppose that time is dependent upon different entities in different locations in space? And suppose it is something dependent only upon life itself? Or to be more precise, suppose it is unique only to those things capable of observation & recording of the past? More over, it is even different for & unique to each different observer.

It can be said with a high degree of certainty that the "future" is not exactly the same for all people or all living things. That should be obvious. For example, the parent of a child has (or had) a past with one future that included the birth of the child, where the child itself develops a past with an entirely different future. From this we might infer that time (and its existence) is unique to each living thing. The Twin Paradox tends to support this idea.

No matter, we may never know the real truth until rocks can actually talk to tell us how they saw their futures & not just record what actually impacted them.

Unlike the hilarious absurdity of Young Frankenstein when Frankenstein's fiancee exclaimed "Oh, I think I love him" in reference to her intercourse with the monster (which was correctly only implied & not fully displayed), the Shape Of Water takes liberals many steps further toward sanctioning sex with animals (which is inappropriately on full display) . Of course, like so many others, this movie will win an academy award simply for its avante guarde bull shit. It's nothing more than porn dressed up in phony, touchy, feely sensitivity contrasted against alleged & grossly exaggerated white male supremacy, almost qualifying as a hate film..

The Third Eye & The Trilogy

The third eye is a spiritual concept associated with enlightenment and direct communication with a higher plane of existence. This may sound a little spooky to those who do not believe in a spiritual world. But for those who do, it may be worth exploring for the purposes of resolving argument regarding the structure of God & whether or not He is actually Three in One.

When it comes to actual sight, we must recognize that we humans have only two eyes separated by a small distance apart for the purpose judging distances between ourselves and other objects. It is up to our brain to resolve the two images we see into one image. If it does not, then we actually see two images of the same object from different perspectives. There are living creatures that do have more than two eyes, & it might be reasoned that, if their brain does not resolve the different images into one, then they will be seeing multiple images of the same thing.

So to say that a person sees three in one is not too far fetched from a purely physical stand point. But what about seeing from a spiritual standpoint? Remembering the disabilities of the cyclops & whether or not they do acknowledge it, people do believe in three in one when they seek consultation from a third party in matters of great concern. Such matters are generally of a "spiritual" nature involving abstract rights or abstract resolutions. So from a spiritual standpoint, the Trilogy is not too far fetched & quite probably a better tool for seeking the truth. And of course, we must always be on guard against those abusing this attitude & claiming to absolutely know the mind of God when it must be only God Himself who knows the multiplicity of all things far beyond the reach of any one puny human mind.

 For My Bridge Friends. For the purposes of protecting the 1C opener, I have made the 1C opening a forcing bid, with a 1D response being a FORCING BUST BID, restricting the opener to go no further than 2C, unless he has 25+ points. An added advantage is that with 1C being a FORCING opening, it allows the opener to open at a lower level than 2C when opener has game in his hand, ie, 25+ points, thereby allowing the 2C opening to be restricted to no more than 24 points. The matrix below describes in full detail the proposed responses to openings in either minor. But for clarity I offer the following explanation: First, for many years it has been the recommendation of bridge experts to respond to a 1C opening with a 4-card major if responder has 6+ points & despite the length in diamonds. In addition, they recommend the existing alertable non-standard immediate response conventions of Inverted Minor Raises, New Minor Forcing, & New Suit Forcing. Given these two recommmendaions, I have simply adopted the idea that ANY RESPONDER IMMEDIATE BID OF A MINOR AT THE 2-LEVEL WHETHER A SIMPLE RAISE OR SHIFT OR JUMP IS FORCING & PROMISES RESPONDER HAS 10+ HIGH CARD POINTS. THIS MEANS THAT NOT ONLY IS 2C OVER 1C INVERTED DENYING A 4-CARD MAJOR , BUT 2D OVER 1C IS ALSO INVERTED DENYING A 4-CARD MAJOR. IN ADDITION, I HAVE EXTENDED THE IDEA THAT EVEN AFTER RESPONDER HAS BID A MAJOR AT THE 1-LEVEL, HIS 2ND BID OF A MINOR AT THE 2-LEVEL IS ALSO INVERTED & FORCING. So what does this mean for the weaker responses where opener has 0-9 points? As with inverted minors, responder's bid of a minor at the 3-level shows 7-9 points & is preemptive in nature, even after he has responded in a major at the 1-level.. Now remembering that an immediate response of 2D over 1C is not a weak jump response, what is responder to do with 0 points & a 6+card diamond suit?.The answer is that responder's rebid of 2D or raise to 2C after his 1st bid of 1D over 1C shows a weak completely bust hand forcing the 1C opener to "pass". The over all net effect of this logic is to keep the bidding lower when the partnership might have game & preempt when it does not, while at the same time protecting the 1C opener from being left in a lousy 1C contract. The worst that can happen is that they wind up in a 2C or 2D contract, BUT AT LEAST WITH A VIABLE MINOR SUIT. With respect to the 1D opening, I recommend promising a 5-card diamond suit which makes it easier for responder to "pass" with a bust hand. But my matirx does allow for short diamond opening lengths, including as low as 3-cards in diamonds. It just needs to be remembered that if responder does bid the opener's minor suit, then he batter have "REASONABLE SUPPORT", meaning enough support to yield a total of at least 7 cards (preferably 8+ cards) in the minor, where 9+cards is enough to justify a 3-level contract.

We Must Not Always Believe Movies Alleged To Be Based On Fact. Case in point, two GREAT MOVIES BACK TO BACK: THE DARKEST HOUR & THE GREATEST SHOWMAN.
Both were excellent & highly recommended.

The Darkest Hour, based upon Churchill in WW II, suggests that King George was the real guts behind the decision to fight Hitler to the end. It is an interesting point, but whether fact or fiction remains to be seen. (It would be cool if true, given King George's speech difficulties)

The Greatest Showman was a beautifully choreographed
musical, based upon the life of P. T. Barnum. HOWEVER, there are some disturbing misrepresentations of historical fact in the movie. IN PARTICULAR THE PORTRAYAL OF JENNY LIND AS BEING A MALICIOUS, IMMORAL, ARROGANT SINGER IS AS FAR FROM THE TRUTH AS ONE CAN GET. IN FACT, SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON WHO WAS HIGHLY CHARITABLE & MORAL. LIKE THE PLAY, CORPUS CHRISTIE, THE MOVIE IS A SLANDEROUS LIE. That such portrayals are allowed to be presented to children who have no knowledge of actual history & without disclosure of the fiction in the story line is a disgrace, being nothing more than pure crap propaganda. I would not recommend against seeing the movie, because the theatrical qualities are rich. However I would warn against the misrepresentation of actual history as being entirely fiction.

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle says that the location of an electron in space (and hence its existence or non-existence) can never be found, measured, or determined with any degree of absolute certainty. I would extend this same premise to include the existence or non-existence of God.

When it comes to God, we can never make any statements with absolute certainty. As in science, we can only infer based upon circumstantial evidence. Now that may sound really wishy washy to those who require certainty in their lives, but the fact is that such a position is more likely to be closer to the truth that those positions that claim to know the truth with absolute certainty. I find it astonishing that there are those now famous scientists who claim that God for sure does not exist.

But how about the other side of the coin? How about those who claim with certainty that God does in fact exist? To those, I can only say that I look at the evidence of history, and in particular the life & presumed death of Jesus Christ. In my view, THERE IS PLENTY OF PHYSICAL & EYE WITNESS EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT HE DID INDEED RISE FROM THE DEAD. AND IF THAT IS SO, THEN IT IS HE ALONE WHO IS INDEED GOD. We may see Him as being comprised of 3 parts,ie, the Trilogy, but He is still the ONE AND ONLY.

And so I do celebrate Christmas and Easter, as sometimes rote, painful and mundane as it might seem at times. . And I do abide by the teaching of the Bible. I encourage my children to do likewise. I just find it very sad that the refusal to teach children the "Good News" is so bigoted, selfish, and narrow minded. Atheists invariably wind up in dead ends to their arguments. And then there are those other so-called theists who do not acknowledge Christ as God. They too are bigoted, selfish, and narrow minded, but with the added insult of wanting to dictate to others with their so-called "scholarly" backgrounds. Their evidence is entirely imaginary. There is no need for further explanation.

Does The Quality Of "Intention" Prove The Existence Of God?

Might it not be that the only proof we need of the existence
of God is the fact of the existence of life itself?
But we must ask ourselves "What exactly is life?".

If we assume that life is like a flame that passes from
one thing to another, then we can say that life is a
process of interaction, a very scientific explanation indeed.
In other words, it is like a fire that spreads from one bush
to another. But does this analogy really completely represent
the fact of the existence of life? Or is there something more?
And if so, what is that something more?

Can anyone deny that one of the qualities of a living thing
is the "intention" to survive? I would suspect the answer to
be "no". One might argue that the "intention" (or "will") to survive is nothing
more than a learned memory reaction on how to reconstruct one's self
in the face destructive circumstances. But on a larger scale I would
submit there is more to intention than just a simple reaction to adversity.
And certainly our collective memory must not be ignored in submission to a single narrow minded memory. Based upon our collective memory,
I would submit that "intention" is a super natural quality, ie, something
related to the "spirit", that makes living things more than just a mere "process". "Intention" implies a knowledge of a coming future that has
not happened yet, ie, an "anticipation". It implies a plan
for dealing with the future. And as soon as we recognize
"intention" beyond individual survival as a characteristic of living things,
then we must give credibility to the idea of an entity uniquely identified
as a "who" that makes a living thing distinct from other non- living
things.

From this point, we can go on to argue that there are living
things with "good" intentions as opposed to living things
with "bad" intentions. It should not be too difficult
to continue the reasoning from here to arrive at the
conclusion that God does exist, as opposed to a Satan.

Of course the day may come when science may unraval the
mystery of the creation of life from inanimate objects.
But it hasn't happened yet. And if it does, we will still
be faced the mystery of "intention".

P/S
Is it not a curious contradiction that life both creates & feeds off of life?
It would almost seem like cannibalism.
We might ask "What is the intention of such a creator?".
At first, there seem to be 2 possibilities;
1. There are things going on that we cannot see.
Might not evolution be extended to include an after-life development?
2. A part of the original creation developed it's own intent in
contradiction of the creator. We might speculate that the original creator was smart enough to build in some self-destruct capabilities in case His creation went awry. But then His creation developed its own intents separate from the creator's intents. (This seems to be the most viable argument at the time)

Finally of course there is always the argument that there was no original creator or creation in the first place, which amounts to no answer at all.

Definition Of "Molestation".
To annoy, disturb, or persecute especially with hostile intent or injurious effect. For there to be any crime of molestation, there must be proof of intent to do harm in the absence of there being any actual harm. However, invasion of another person's space for whatever reason might be considered a civil offense for which there is no reasonable recourse. And unfortunately there are those who would feign great harm at the hands of another simply because they seek some reward other than justice.

THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY HAVE A BROADER IMPACT UPON SOCIETY.

Let's put it this way. If your spouse cheats on you & lies to you, then you should divorce them immediately, BECAUSE THEY ARE LEADING A DOUBLE LIFE WHICH IS EVEN MORE UNACCEPTABLE ON THE PART OF THOSE IN PUBLIC OFFICE. Do not endorse the bad behavior by engaging in it yourself. And if they are found to be guilty of forcing themselves upon others beyond innocent frivolity, then that is a crime.

Unfortunately, this same reasoning of "2 wrongs do not make it right" cannot be reasonably extended to cases where innocent human life has been deliberately taken or in instances of war. There are times when brutality must be met with brutality for the purposes of defending one's loved ones &/or nation, lest further unjustified deaths or unjust/unfair/unnecessary & severe sufferings beyond normal life will most certainly occur based upon historical evidence relevant to the conditions immediately at hand. To ignore & be negligently dismissive of wrong doing including the evidence of history is to be as wrong as the wrong doer himself.

The pastor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, understood this paradox when he joined in the effort to assassinate Hitler, but only after Hitler had historically proved himself to be evil & excessively abusive of humanity beyond Bonhoeffer himself. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends". And i emphasize the word "friends" as opposed to "enemies". Would you betray your entire nation "of friends" on behalf of unknown, law breaking , & potentially violent foreigners with historically questionable ideologies? Quite obviously today, there are politicians who would do precisely that, ie, sell this country down the toilet.

I absolutely hate the lying liberal left & their Republican counterparts that created this hypocritical political environment. They are a dangerous & treacherous culture that is CANCEROUS TO OUR LIBERTIES & RIGHT TO EXERCISE OF OUR OWN INDIVIDUAL THINKING BASED UPON THE TRUTH, because they distort, exaggerate & hide the truth for their own selfish , lazy & negligent motives, not for the good of our nation which they have come to despise & seek to exploit. They represent & have promoted the AGE OF LOST REASON.

HONOR IN DEFEAT IS INSPIRED BY GOOD LOSERS, NOT BY SORE LOSERS.

It should be noted that Ronald Reagan had issues with G. H. Bush.
Bush was always an open borders advocate and more condemning of others than Reagan, typical of liberals today.. Reagan was not the hawk that Bush was on the subject.

But times have changed and the problem of illegal migration, left unaddressed for decades, has become much more exacerbated and requires addressing to the contrary of the Bush dynasty which initiated the MEAN SPIRITED TALK AGAINST TRUMP. IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE ENGAGING IN BAD MOUTHING PEOPLE, YOU BETTER BE ABLE TO ACCEPT SOME BLOW BACK.

Nevertheless G. H. Bush is to be respected (not worshiped) for his service during WWII. So let the old Bush and his dynasty fad away, much as MacArthur did. At least MacArthur had the decency to shut the hell up after being rejected by the people, unlike the whiny babies of today.

Mark 8:36 "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

By the same token, what does it profit a nation to gain the whole world and lose its soul.? Should we be sacrificing the soul of our nation to ALLEGED GOODNESS? Jesus Christ also said "Why do you call me 'good'", indicating that he had limits as to what he tolerated.

When the government of a nation turns its back on its citizens in favor of alleged moral righteousness on behalf of unknown foreigners whose morals are questionable, it has lost its soul. Kindness to foreigners while belittling and prejudging those innocents at home IS NOT RIGHTEOUSNESS. IT IS BETRAYAL & TREASON. When someone slanders you with name calling, with words like "Islamaphobe", "homophobe", "xenophobe", "bigot", "hate monger", "fear monger","racist", THEN THEY ARE NOT RIGHTEOUS. They are only trying to advance their own selfish agenda by belittling you, just as the Pharisees condemned Christ. They are as "mean spirited" & prejudging & narrow minded as the worst of them. There is an old saying which this generation has forgotten: "IF YOU DON'T HAVE SOMETHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT SOMEBODY, THEN DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL", that is unless you have actual proof of them being fully involved in the unjust treatment of another human being.

24 Years of THREE OF THE WORST PRESIDENTS EVER (surpassing Jimmy Carter) who have ruined this country. Nothing but lying, betrayal & condescending rhetoric. Bill Clinton - "I did not have sex with that woman". G W Bush - "Minutemen are nothing but a bunch of lawless vigilantes" . Barack Obama - "Guns & bibles". They have sold this country down the tube to the likes of La Raza, Russian Uranium deals, Illegal migrants, NAFTA, TARP, etc. And they continue to arrogantly slander & defame the American citizen with their phony self righteous indignation speaking against "nationalism" as if it were some great moral sin. Apparently they all thought they were president of the world & forgot that their 1st responsibility was to the American people & this nation to which they falsely claim allegiance.

THE INEXPLICABLE

There may be times in our lives where we are overcome by anxieties, causing us to be unable to cope. Why, we may not know, and the answer to which we may think is in a pill. Jesus observed this condition saying, "He who would save his life will lose it & he who would lose his life will save it". Perhaps the real pill is to give to others when you are fretting over your own condition. But what about when others are depending on you? Then what? Do we just say forget it all no matter what? What if others will suffer by your inability to cope? And does the same premise apply to an entire nation? The answer is most illusive and may just be that what is an answer for one is not necessarily an answer for all. No matter, perceiving others as being anxious or assuming they are anxious & condemning them for their alleged anxieties is the height of arrogant selfishness.

Die Hard Conspiracy Theorists Are Costing The Tax Payer Plenty.

The Wasted Trump Investigation

It is one thing to have reasonable suspicions & investigate possibilities. BUT IT IS QUITE ANOTHER THING TO BELABOR AN ISSUE WHEN THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUBSTANTIATE THE THEORY. Yet that is exactly what is happening with the special council investigation of Trump. This man has been investigated up the yin-yang ever since he announced his run for presidency. The Washington Post put 25+ investigators on his case before he became president, trying to dig up what ever they could. The DNC for sure had massive numbers of investigators doing the same. And apparently, the Obama administration had the country's intelligence investigating Trump as well. YET NO BODY HAS COME UP WITH ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE TO THE HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE BEHAVIOR OF THE LIBERAL LEFT, INCLUDING HILLARY CLINTON WITH HER SALE OF URANIUM LANDS TO THE RUSSIANS WHEN SHE WAS SECRETARY OF STATE.

The fact is that Trump IS THE MOST TRANSPARENT PRESIDENT THIS COUNTRY HAS SEEN IN YEARS. VIA TWITTER, YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE IS THINKING EVERY DAY. IT IS A MOST REFRESHING CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATIONS. Meanwhile, the clandestine special council investigation continues wasting tax payer money & will do so until Trump is up for reelection, at which time it will come out with it's TRUMPED UP CHARGES, all for cheap political gain.

GLOBAL WARMING - An "Inconvenient" Truth or a CONVENIENT HALF TRUTH for political gain.

Al Gore, the self proclaimed inventor of the internet, has us all up in arms over whether or not we are going to be burning in hell from raised kindling temperatures or drowning to death from massive sea level rises due to polar cap ice melting. Well, the last fear has been proven false by the fact that the north polar ice cap has increased in size by 40%+ over the last 5 years. But that does not quell the fears of burning in hell.

It is well established that large quantities of particle clouds in the atmosphere block the sun and cause a cooling effect. Scientists concede that the dinosaurs went extinct because of the Ice Age caused by particles strewn into the atmosphere by an asteroid hit. When Krakatoa erupted in the late 19th century, a large global cooling was noted. Fires, like the huge Yellowstone fire in the late 20th century threw large amounts of particles into the atmosphere. And today, which should have been hotter, was cooled by the smoke particles from a local fire. So much for the fears of burning in hell.

Now if Mr Gore wants to argue the case against air pollution by coal, I will not disagree with him. In the 1970's, a coal powered electric plant in Laughlin, Nev, produced so much filth and soot in the air that you could not even see the other side of the Grand Canyon. Since Edison shut down that plant, the Canyon has returned to its former glory. But apparently Mr Gore does not have the guts to say "CLEAN UP YOUR ACT". No, he has to complicate the matter with his phony science.

Christians believe in the "Holy Spirit". Jesus said "Who so ever speaks against the Holy Spirit, he shall not be forgiven". And He did condemn what was "taught" (said) to children contrary to His teachings. But who or what is the Holy Spirit?

One opinion is that the Holy Spirit is the breath of God expressed through human song & speech. So any restrictions on freedom of speech can cause collateral damage on & be suppressive of the Holy Spirit. And so through the same pipeline can come the most beautiful and the most ugly.

That being the case, it appears that we Christians are admonished to t suffer the expression of offensive speech. But deeds speak much louder than words, and offensive deeds, especially those that impact our loved ones, friends, neighbors and countrymen, we must not tolerate.

More recent documentaries in physics have described how the mass of the Higgs Boson is important in determining whether we live in a symmetrical "universe" or an unsymmetrical "multiverse".

Perhaps the question really boils down to a symmetrical "universe" of scarcity as opposed to a "dual-verse" of abundance? Sounds like the old heaven and hell theory. The more you break things up, the greater the appearance of abundance. The more you consolidate things, the greater the appearance of scarcity,

Comparing Responses To 1C Openings To Responses To 2C Openings.

(For My Bridge Friends)

Recently, I came out with my system of responses to a strong opening of 2C, wherein the stronger the responder's hand, the cheaper his 1st bid with 2D being a better hand than a higher level bid in another suit. .

Now, I am coming out with my system of responses to a normal opening of 1C, wherein a 1D bid could show responder with a complete bust hand of 0 points.

So why is there not symmetry (consistency) between the two.
The answer is simple and logical. The 1C opening is dealing with a SCARCITY of points, where the 2C opening is dealing with an ABUNDANCE of points.

MINOR SUIT OPENINGS, RESPONSES, & OPENER 2ND BIDS
***************************************************************
1. PRELIMINARY NOTES, DEFINITIONS, EXPLANATIONS, & NOTATIONS:

a. OLD PRINCIPLES STILL IN USE.

1] A "FORWARD BID" IS OPENER'S 2ND BID THAT GOES TO THE NEXT BID
LEVEL EITHER REBIDDING HIS ORIGINAL OPENING SUIT OR A SUIT OF
LOWER RANK. IT IS MORE A "DOWNSHIFT" THAN AN "UPSHIFT".
IT IMPLIES A 13-15 POINT HOLDING.

2] A "REVERSE BID" IS OPENER'S 2ND BID THAT GOES TO THE NEXT LEVEL
(PASSING UP NO TRUMP) & SHOWS A NEW HIGHER RANKING SUIT THAN THE
OPENER'S 1ST BID SUIT. IT IS AN "UPSHIFT". IT IMPLIES 16-18 POINTS,
EXCEPT WHEN RESPONDER HAS GIVEN A FORCING BID ALREADY AT THE NEXT
BID LEVEL.

3] HOLDING 5+ & 5+ IN TWO SUITS, ALWAYS OPEN IN THE HIGHER RANKING SUIT,
EVEN IF THE LOWER RANKING SUIT IS LONGER.

4] IF RESPONDING TO A MINOR SUIT OPENING AT THE 1-LEVEL, THE RESPONDER,
HAVING 6+ POINTS AND A 4-CARD MAJOR MUST ALWAYS BID HIS MAJOR
AT THE 1-LEVEL.

5] THE "INVERTED MINOR RAISE" OPTION IS AN IMMEDIATE SIMPLE OR JUMP
RAISE OF A MINOR SUIT OPENING. THIS REVERSES THE STANDARD POINT
COUNT RANGES BETWEEN THE SIMPLE RAISE AND JUMP RAISE. THE SIMPLE
RAISE BECOMES A "FORCING" BID.

6] IF OPENER HAS ONLY 13-15 POINTS WITHOUT A SINGLETON OR VOID,
THEN HE SHOULD NOT BID A NEW SUIT AT THE NEXT LEVEL UP.

b. NEW PRINCIPLES.

1] AFTER A 1C OPENING, RESPONDER WITH 0 POINTS CAN:
a] "PASS" IF HE HAS 5+ CLUBS.
b] GIVE A WEAK JUMP SHIFT IN A SUIT IN WHICH HAS 6+ CARDS.
c] BID 2D AS A WEAK JUMP SHIFT PROVIDED HE HAS 5 DIAMONDS &
NO 3-CARD MAJOR.
d] BID 1D FORCING IN THE ABSENCE OF THE PREVIOUS OPTIONS.

2] AFTER A 1C OPENING AND A 1D RESPONSE, OPENER MUST EXERCISE EXTREME
CAUTION IN HIS BIDDING. WITH 13-18 POINTS AND NO 5-CARD CLUB SUIT,
HE MUST NOT BID ABOVE 1N. BUT WITH 16-18 POINTS & A 5-CARD CLUB SUIT,
HE CAN BID 2C. WITH 13-18 points & A 6+ CARD SUIT, OPENER CAN BID 2C.

3] A 1D OPENING BID SHOULD SHOW A 5+ CARD SUIT.

4] AFTER A 1D OPENING, A BERGEN-LIKE 3C RESPONSE CAN SHOW 4-CARD
SUPPORT WITH 6-9 POINTS. A 2D RESPONSE IS STILL INVERTED & FORCING.
A 3D RESPONSE IS WEAK & PREMPTIVE AS IN BERGAN RESPONSES TO A
MAJOR SUIT OPENING.

c. NEW: 1C CLUB OPENING & RESPONSES.

THIS SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE 1C OPENER FROM BEING "PASSED"
OUT WHEN RESPONDER HAS 0 POINTS.

------UP THE LINE RESPONSES -------------------------------------------------

1] WITH 6+ HCP & A 4-CARD MAJOR,
RESPONDER SHOULD BID HIS 4-CARD MAJOR AT THE 1-LEVEL,
EVEN IF HE HAS A 9-CARD MINOR SUIT.
[a OPENER WILL EITHER SIMPLE RAISE OR JUMP RAISE IF HE HAS 4 IN THE
SAME MAJOR. OTHERWISE, OVER A 1H RESPONSE HE WILL BID SOMETHING ELSE
AT THE 1-LEVEL OR 2-LEVEL DEPENDING ON HIS POINT RANGE.
[1 RESPONDER MAY THE CHOOSE TO BID AN EXCEEDINGLY LONG MINOR SUIT
OR STICK WITH THE SEEMINGLY AGREED UPON 4-4 MAJOR SUIT FIT,
DEPENDING UPON OPENER'S 2ND BID.

-----IMMEDIATE 1N RESPONSES --------------------------------------------------

2] WITH NO 5+ CARD CLUB SUIT, & NO 5+ CARD DIAMOND SUIT, & NO 4-CARD MAJOR,
(IE, 4/4/3/2, 4/3/3/3, 3/4/3/3)
RESPONDER SHOULD BID NO TRUMP AT THE LEVEL APPROPRIATE TO HIS POINT RANGE.
a] WITH 6-9 POINTS, 1N.
b] WITH 10-12 POINTS, 2N.
c] WITH 13-15 POINTS, 3N.

e] WITH 19-21 POINTS, 5N.
f] WITH 22-24 POINTS, 6N.
g] WITH 25+ POINTS, 7N.

----- OTHER IMMEDIATE 1N RESPONSES & IMMEDIATE CLUB RAISES --------------------

WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAD A CHILD TAKEN FROM YOU BY VIOLENCE, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT RECOGNIZING OTHERS WHO HAVE FALLEN SIMILARLY.

Having Just Seen The Epilog of The Vietnam War.

Perhaps the real reason for war is to instill such a deep & profound sense of guilt in the warring parties that they ultimately come together to make amends. Witness how Civil War vets from opposing sides ultimately embraced each other. Witness how we regard Britain today. Witness how we have made amends with Vietnam. But then who really knows how to explain it all given the insanity of those would blow themselves up just to make a point?

PRAY FOR FOG - LOTS OF IT.

H.B. AIRSHOW a complete farce.
1. Costing city a lot of money.
2. Costing residence a lot of ear drums & houses shattered.
WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

These planes might as well be flying through our living rooms for 5 uninterrupted days. If they were flying a few feet lower, they would be singeing the tops of our trees. Don't plan on getting any sleep if you work the midnight shift. So why are they doing this when there is a whole ocean out there to fly over. But oh no, they have to fly LOUD & LOW right over our homes where you could almost touch them. It's like they want you to know they are there,a bunch of juvenile nonsense.

With such noise (be it continuous or sporadic) property values diminish.
The city of Inglewood was a beautiful city until the jets came into LAX.
The city of Newport Beach had a major "Ban the Jets" controversy that
resulted in flights in & out of John Wayne to follow strict flight patterns to abate the noise level. So now the city of Huntington Beach sees fit to put a giant blow torch right over H.B. homes. It's not enough to be in a home where you almost have to sleep standing up. It's not enough to be crowded into a $3000+ per month unit the size of a jail cell. I's not enough to have High Density Housing where you probably can hear your neighbor snoring or taking a leak in the middle of the night. Now you get to have your brains rattled once a year & your ear drums busted. I don't know which I dislike more, the damn protesters or the damn jets.

The CAINE MUTINY & KENT STATE UNIVERSITY A LESSON IN MORAL CONSCIENCE Do you really have a "conscience" or are you just showing off & contributing to moral depravity? Perhaps one answer can be found Herman Wouk's novel, The Caine Mutiny. In that book, the crew of a US naval vessel took over the running of the ship from the captain after a series of events proved the captain to be unfit for command. Two of the senior officers were subsequently court martialed and represented by their defense counsel who was able to get them off, but only by completely destroying the captain who had honorably served in prior combat. In the crew's celebration party after the trial, the defense counsel came in late completely drunk with a guilt conscience about destroying the captain's reputation. He then told the crew that they were completely wrong, BECAUSE THE CAPTAIN HAD ASKED FOR THEIR HELP IN TRYING TO BRING THEM TOGETHER WELL BEFORE THE MUTINY. And therein rests a test for identifying the true, just & morally correct conscience. Now then, what exactly happened at Kent State University in 1970 during a series of student protests against the Vietnam War? Don't misunderstand. This is not to justify the killing of otherwise innocent students at Kent State during the student protests. But it is aimed at those who claim to be on the moral high ground in orchestrating those protests & absolved from all responsibility for creating the conditions that led to that dreadful day. The fact is, 2 days prior to the shootings there had been a group of protesters who burned down the school's ROTC building and prevented firemen from putting out the fire. It was clearly an attack of violence. So an environment of extreme hostility had already been created. Did any of those who orchestrated and participated in the protests that occur 2 days later ever try to help turn in the arsonists? Did they respond to any pleas for help in the days that followed the fire? Did they withdraw from the protests when ordered by the National Guard to disassemble? NO! A rational & morally correct mind would see that it was not the appropriate time to stage acts of defiance & would only escalate the violence. One does not stop a war by starting a war. One does not stop violence by starting violence. So where is the alleged moral conscience of protesters when they create the very circumstances that lead to violence? I would suggest that they have no real moral conscience, just as the defense counsel of the Caine's crew discredited his clients alleged moral conscience. In the novel, the crew finally came to recognize their guilt. Unfortunately that is not really happening in the real life of today. Ted Cooper updated his status. Interesting From The 1980's This was first published in '84 but is still relevant all these years later. CHARLIE REESE'S FINAL COLUMN A GREAT READ!!!!! A very interesting column. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL Be sure to Read the Poem at the end. Charley Reese's final column for the Orlando Sentinel... He has been a journalist for 49 years. He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN. Be sure to read the Tax List at the end. This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican nor democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It's a relatively short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering! 545 vs. 300,000,000 People- by Charlie Reese Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them. Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits? Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes? You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does. You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does. One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank. I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician$1 million dollars in cash.

The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.

Who is the speaker of the House now? He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.

If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ... If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.

Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power. They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses, provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

AN OPEN LETTER FROM A MARINE
=============================

Open Letter to the NFL & ESPN

“You Just Shat Where You ‘ET”

In the Fleet Marine Corps one of the first things they teach newbie’s before going on field ops is: “Don’t shit where you eat.” Just common sense? Not in the NFL.

That is my current take on ESPN, the NBA, and the NFL in particular, you just shat where you ‘et.

And, please don’t tell me about your first amendment right to protest at where you work. Instead, tell that to the Google employee who was fired for speaking up at work.

Which is exactly what has happened in the NFL – and I am not talking about the protesters sitting out the national anthem. I am referring to the NFL prohibition against pro-police activism on the part of the Dallas Cowboys who want to join “Arm-in-Arm” with the Dallas PD in support of the officer’s families of those gunned down by domestic terrorists. The NFL forbids the team from displaying the Arm-in-Arm symbol on their helmets! Why? Because it does not fit with their brand of political correctness.

Can anyone say “hypocrite?”

This is just one of the current and stupid moves on the part of professional athletes, sports broadcasters, and their sponsors on ESPN and related channels. The dumbest part is that you are now out of the closet. We know who you are and where you stand, and it is not with this Marine and his fellow Americans.

You hate us. We can live with that. The question is: “Can you live with the fallout or consequences of our knowing who you are and where you are coming from?” I think you were much better off when we did not ask - and you did not tell us that you think we are a bunch of God and America loving, Bible hugging, gun toting, deplorables!

Your biggest and dumbest mistake was to align yourself with the progressive Left. They hate you too! They hate everything that smacks of masculinity or promotes it in future generations. They gotcha.

For more than a decade the radical left and progressive movement in America has been doing its best to destroy all football programs from high school to collegiate levels, to the professional level in the NFL. Again, they hate any and every entity that they cannot feminize. Oh Roger, your hem is showing,

Now, the radical left can sit back and watch Pete Carroll, Mike Tomlin, and Roger Goodell do their work for them. And, one of the consequences of your actions has cost you – read lost you – the strongest and most manly members of your fan base. Stupid move. You were caught with your skirts up!

Like this Marine, there are tens of millions of men who do not need the NFL. I have better things to do on weekends like going to the range, hunting, fishing, and spending quality time with my grandchildren. That is a better investment of my time than watching millionaire cry babies on ESPN perpetuate myths about their being discriminated against.

You are too stupid to see that you have been played. I agree with my President Donald Trump, who has just gained more support from men like me. We love this guy because he has balls. We laugh at you because your hem is showing. The epitaph on the gravestone of the NFL should be this: “They shat where they et!”

"DIVISIVENESS" ? Hell;, that started a long time ago.

Can't even watch a football game anymore without it becoming political. First they speak against protecting this country from foreign nationals by denouncing ICE.Then Byeyonce. Then Kaepernick in a continuing series of degraded behavior. So much for the so-called "National" Football League who allowed this to start with its disrespect and no discipline. Why don't they just move to another country? There is more than enough visibility of the issues without the subjects being interjected into what is suppose to be a coming together in escape from the nonsense and lies.

Can't even drive safely down the road without being confronted by a bunch of lawless protesters in addition to the traffic that has been exacerbated by the likes of Jerry Brown.

Can't even watch entertainment award ceremonies without some idiot taking stage and using it to be in your face with their stupid nonsense & lies. Complete lack of any visible GRACE.

Can't even read a newspaper or watch mass media news without turning facts into unsupported opinions.

Can't legally vote upon issues and pass them without some idiot on the Supreme Court reinterpreting the Constitution to overturn lawful democratic processes.

Can't even APPROPRIATELY speak your mind without being called all kinds of phony names.

Can't even have EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW any more.

Can't have children anymore without them being attacked for things that occurred well over 100 years ago. No acknowledgement of Statute of Limitations.

Can't get a job as a young citizen person to get started out on the road to life, because the jobs are taken by foreign nationals.

Can't worship Christ without fearing that some nut job is going to come in and blowup or kill worshipers in their appropriate place of worship.

Can't enforce the basic laws against violence without stupid protest and more violence.

And we are suppose to pay for all of this crap?
Freedom? Laws? You don't have either. You have ANARCHY supported by a distorted constipated legal system.

Our country has gone to hell with all of the unjust me-first discontent, hypocrisy & lies. This is not Russia's fault or China's fault.
This is Mexico's fault, our court's fault and our own fault and we are becoming just like them, ie, a banana republic. Kim Jong Un does not have to destroy us with nukes. All he has to do is wait until we ourselves have a complete melt down. Absolutely PATHETIC.

MARIJUANA & MARRIAGE
In Washington State

Recently, on a single day Washington State recently passed two laws. They
1. Legalized gay marriage and
2. Legalized marijuana.
Legalizing gay marriage and marijuana on the same day now makes perfect Biblical sense.
Leviticus 20:13 says: "If a man lies with another man they should be stoned."
Apparently we just hadn't interpreted it correctly before!

Post Note: Jesus said "Let him who is without sin cast the 1st stone".
However, He did not pardon the sinner.
His point was that the punishment should not exceed the crime
& without exonerating the violator.

Since homosexuality is not an irreversible act, capital punishment
for it is unjustified. Randy Whites murder of Harvey Milk solely on the grounds of engaging in homosexual acts was wrong. But the commission of homosexual acts also remains to be wrong and always will be wrong. As a Christian who believes that Jesus Christ is God, if I truly love God, then I will obey God and His word. And when His word is so blatantly clear and self evident, there is no room for misinterpretation of the true meaning of love. Lust can never be real love. Neither is paying lip service to love without obedience to God representative of real love. Words can be cheap, but behavior speaks volumes.
Ted Cooper updated his status.
If you believe that "forgiveness" is the unconditional conscious capitulation to evil without demand for change on the part of the wrong-doer & without fairly compensating those who have suffered at the hand of the wrong doer, then you know not the meaning of "justice" & "righteousness" and will deny others their belief in justice, thus becoming a cruel and treacherous person yourself. To refuse to see the relative sufferings of otherwise innocent people is evil in itself. Even Jesus Christ had His limits on forgiveness. He demanded "repentance" on the part of sinners & evil people, stating "There will be no forgiveness for those who speak against the Holy Spirit". So much for "unconditional love" which only God can grant.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahatma_Gandhi

It is easy to see the correlation between Gandhi & Jesus Christ.
Include in that comparison Abraham Lincoln.
He was a good man who did not believe in the partitioning of India, just
as Lincoln did not believe in the breakup of the Union..
So one could say both were "NATIONALISTS".
Lincoln was assassinated by a separatist.
The strange thing was that Gandhi was wrongfully assassinated by a self-proclaimed nationalist, thereby tainting the word "nationalist".

Whether or not countries should be partitioned or not depends much upon the dangers involved in exposing the involved populations to violence & injustice & the impact upon the rest of the world at large. There are times when cultures need to strive to work things out together for the sake of all. There are other times that the only way to avoid persistent conflict is to partition the cultures giving each their own space. Presumably this is why we have nations where there are distinct and irreconcilable differences that prohibit close proximity to each other.

It is UTTER NONSENSE & COUNTER-DIVERSITY to think that just because we are all human that we should be able to meld together into one melting pot on a global basis. Homogeneity is the antithesis of diversity. That's like saying all animals should have the same habitat.
BALONEY!

It is the duty of any visitor from one culture to respect the space of the other culture where he is visiting. When in Rome, do as the Romans. Otherwise stay home. Hence, illegal migration is WRONG & DISRESPECTFUL. If you are going to immigrate, then you should fully adopt the ways of the culture into which you are immigrating, & that means speaking the language. It is rather hypocritical for liberals to be condemning the FRENCH & US for not speaking Vietnamese while at the same time making allowances for our government to spend vast amounts of money publishing documents in every language to accommodate those who are simply too lazy to learn English.

Trump gave an appropriate speech & liberals parse out just one word , "Rocket Man", to discredit the whole thing. HOW STUPID & GUTLESS THEY ARE! Trump was mellow in his use of the word "Rocket Man"., an extract from the liberal song writer Elton John. But liberals don't like us using their words. We have to say "We Condemn" which virtually means nothing.to the troops that Trumps commands. The only word liberals know is "appeasement". I would have used much stronger language to describe Kim, like F---NG ASS HOLE. It's time to challenge this bastard. A naval blockade may be an appropriate start. He must not be allowed to go any further in the direction he has gone or he will definitely be radiating the world.

Of course the namby-pamby liberals will inappropriately & hypocritically condemn Trump for starting WWIII rather than try to really contribute to defeating Kim..This is not the same as Vietnam or Iraq. KIM DOES HAVE WMD & IS THREATENING THE WORLD. IT IS NOT ABOUT A COUNTRY'S INDEPENDENCE FROM COLONIAL RULE AS WAS VIETNAM. THIS IS NOT A MISTAKE IN ASSESSMENT AS WAS IRAQ. KIM IS ENGAGED IN WAGING WORLD WAR.

Worried about Russia and China? We need to maintain civil contact with them. We need to not threaten them with any more trivial bull shit and assure them they will not be attacked unless they side with N. Korea., maybe even allow them to take over N.Korea since they are neighbors. The proof will be in the pudding.

TROUBLE MAKERS OF THE WORLD & WHO CALLS THEMSELVES WHAT.

“Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics” ("SOVIET"} and "National Socialist German Workers Party" (aka, "NAZI FASCIST"') both have something in common, ie, THE WORD "SOCIALIST". But more than that, they both represent forms of COERCED SOCIALISM..

"INDIVIDUALISM" stands in contrast to "SOCIALISM". They question is, are they mutually exclusive or can a person be individualistic and socialistic at the same time. The only word that comes to mind to describe the possessing of both is the word "NATIONALISM" without qualifying it as either socialism or individualism. Christianity might be seen as a form of socialism, but it does not represent a form of coerced socialism. Rather it should be seen as voluntary socialism and more closely akin to non-coerced "nationalism". Hopefully, that is what the election of President Trump represents.

This all may sound like a bunch of word games, but it is important in identifying the motives, leanings and intent of those who call themselves "socialists" or "progressives" or "liberals" or "libertarians" or "conservatives" . There are always shades of grey and different mixes of any of these. BUT THE WORST SHADE is that of "ANARCHISTS" on either the left or right. Our Constitution allows for the existence of any of these shades to exist, EXCLUDING ANARCHISTS, and demands "NATIONALISM". Therefore, anyone speaking against "nationalism" is very likely leaning toward anarchy, which is anti-Constitutional.

That should tell you something of the anti-nationalistic leanings of today's Democratic Party as they abandon loyalty to their citizen neighbors & countrymen in their attempts to completely dominate, indoctrinate and coerce the country into their mold and solely for the purpose of maintaining political power without regard for all and at the expense of the legal citizens.

From The FTC - Equifax Data Breach: Here Is What to Do

https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2017/09/equifax-data-breach-what-do

Trusting your financial info & identity to anything on the web/cloud is at best an educated risk. I would not use anything cloud based if I can avoid it at all. That includes FACEBOOK,GOOGLE, MICROSOFT, OBAMACARE WEB SITES, TAX PROVIDER WEB SITES, and financial institutions (although limited use of basic financial institutions has its pros). In addition I would be very careful in exactly what devices you store your personal info on and how you use them, especially cell phones which today love to use the cloud. ANYTHING ( AND I DO MEAN ANYTHING} THAT HAS ACCESS TO THE INTERNET IS AT RISK. I don't care the promises, the guarantees, etc, if it is devised/built by humans, it can be broken by humans.

In addition, there is VERY LITTLE that you can trust now days from the mass media (given all the lying liberal left) , and almost as little from the government. Remember there have already been 2 major data breaches of government data including the IRS & the DEPT OF PERSONNEL SERVICES which leaves very little confidence in the government.. That being the case, the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) may be the last resort when it comes to securing your financial info & identity protection. This website will direct you to

WHERE YOU CAN RECEIVE YOUR FREE ANNUAL CREDIT REPORTS AS MANDATED BY LAW. (Bet you didn't know you could get a free credit report one time a year)

Funny how those who were once called "MIGRANT" workers became "IMMIGRANTS". It's so convenient to change terminology and then the Constitution & laws.

So SCREW BOTH PARTIES. NEITHER ARE CAPABLE OR DESIROUS OF PROTECTING THE AMERICAN CITIZEN, AND THIS IS WHY WE HAVE THESE IDENTITY THREATS TODAY. AND THIS IS WHY I SUPPORT THE MINUTEMEN & TEA PARTY. (You don't like it? Then T/S)

I jut witnessed the most incredible football game come-back ever. Near the end of the 3rd quarter, UCLA was down 34 points having only 10 points to Texas AM's 44 points. But UCLA decided to play ball like never before and come back to win 45 to 44. All thanks to UCLA'S QB Josh Rosen and a defense that finally woke up, but still almost blew it with a major unnecessary unsportsman-like conduct penalty.. (Kick the guy off the team.) ASTOUNDING.

Synopsis of The Bible and What/How We Interpret Things:

The Bible is the true and tragic story of good faith verses deceit that offers the only realistic viable explanation for the purpose of human existence. Of course if you want a life without a good purpose, that's up to you. We all love George Gershwin's "It Ain't Necessarily So". But then a complete literal translation ain't necessarily correct, any more than a complete metaphorical interpretive translation is correct.

We seem to have the same problem in interpreting our own Constitution. Knowing the actual contextual circumstances at the time a piece is written is important, which makes knowledge of history important. Of course the glorification of any one individual who contributed to vile efforts is not appropriate. But to rewrite history by tearing down remnants of it is to create a lie. Such attempts currently occurring in this country today are no different than denial of the holocaust or the destruction of historical sites in Palmyra, Syria by ISIS.

No matter the history, judgments based solely on precedence are not necessarily correct or representative of true justice, because history is filled with self serving politicians who have set one precedent or another. Example: John Marshall & the alleged power of Judicial Review. To say "This is right because we have always done it that way" is not a good example of correct thinking, but more indicative of laziness. The most honest thing a person can say is "In the long run, I simply don't know, because I was not there at the time".

But there are some things a person should know, because they are obvious and "self-evident". And on those things a person can be justified in making a judgment, particularly when it is backed up explicitly in the Bible. Example: the condemnation of homosexual behavior.

Quibbling over the amount of a donation is ABSOLUTE NON-SENSE. Both Trump and Sandra Bullock VOLUNTARILY GAVE $1,000,000 to the Harvey victims. But some idiots choose to condemn them for not giving more , because they are rich. NONSENSE. Just be thankful they gave anything at all. When i give as little as 10 cents to a homeless person, they say "God Bless You" which makes me want to give them more. There is too much condemnation and too little thankfulness in this country. There has become too little appreciation for what our forefathers gave us, even to the point now that some idiot Catholic priest wants to tear down George Washington's statute. One might as well condemn one's own parents for having given birth to them. Ted Cooper updated his status. The harder the hearing, the louder the shouting.

So let's reverse the questions. Is Woodruff justified in asking if Trump is justified in his dealings with Congress? Is the liberal media justified in constantly exaggerating and distorting the news? And so we will continue to question the news media until is begins to demonstrate responsible reporting. Ted Cooper updated his status. On Phony Social Justice. Belief in Jesus Christ is contrary to self-serving interest. But inappropriate belief can lead to societal maladies. Each individual must ask himself "Am I justified in ignoring &/or neglecting the plight of others, or am I being a self-serving bleeding heart who would act on behalf of those guilty of inappropriate behavior?". Being justified means we see the wrongs committed on all sides and correctly weigh their relative consequences without bias. It does not mean we dismiss the wrong doings of one side where the other side is more incorrect. Far too often we see others claiming to be morally correct as they completely ignore the injustices committed by those they claim to support. Case in point - supporters of illegal immigration. Ted Cooper Legitimizing wrongful behavior and fanning the flames of discontent is NO ANSWER. These people should go home and allow others to speak. We have a system of voting, and it should be allowed to work without a bunch of thugs and legal wolves trying to overturn it. Updated Aug 20, 2017, 8:43 AM Ted Cooper updated his status. To The "I HATE HATE" Haters. When your behavior, lies, exaggerations and slander become as offensive as the behavior of those you claim to hate, then you become a complete phony & hypocrite no better than them. As Jesus Christ said "Will Satan cast out Satan?". In a nutshell, you are 100% wrong. And so the liberal left is no better than the kkk and Nazi party. And they know their behavior is wrong, otherwise they would not be wearing masks, nor disrupting peaceful public rallies. They do not seek true social justice. They care not about the collateral damage they impose on innocent citizens, but seek only to exterminate any and all opposition to their viewpoint whether or not it presents a real threat to our society. They care not for the rule of law. Their only goal is to gain political power through disruptive protests, intimidation, frivolous law suits and violence. As C S Lewis has said, "When you make one cause the thing you must do at all costs, you ultimately find yourself lying, giving false witness and becoming a cruel and treacherous person" So it is with the liberal left. Ted Cooper ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. PERHAPS WE SHOULD HAVE MARTIAL LAW. Updated Aug 19, 2017, 12:58 PM Ted Cooper updated his status. Today's Sermon = MilkToast, Pure Pablum . Made me want to puke. Advocated an unfettered outreach of hospitality to anybody and everybody no matter what they've done extending well beyond the limits set by the Disciple Paul. It would have been better if it had been simply said "Don't be inhospitable without justification" . But oh no, we are suppose to love everybody unconditionally with sincerity. How can you be sincere if you betray those closest to you? It is hypocrisy, the same hypocrisy that threatens to destroy our nation.. Ted Cooper updated his status. The "scope" of anything generally defines the extent of inclusion. The "scope" of an argument can alter the morality of lesser "scopes". Example: WWII necessitated the killing of what would otherwise be considered the immoral murder of other human beings. The only problem was those human beings were motivated to impose their domination over other cultures in the world that had no direct impact upon them or their homeland. When considering entering into an argument, a good rule of thumb is to ask ourselves "does it really impact us or our family". Beyond that we should ask ourselves "If it does impact us, then are we really justified in imposing our viewpoint, or is it detrimental to the majority of our neighbors". In other words, our scope of argument must be limited with respect to those immediately closest to us and not be projected or imposed upon other beings that have nothing to do with our own legitimate concerns. An atheist driving down the highway seeing a Cross on a hill has no business filing a law suit unless he happens to own the hill. There can be no such thing as a human "right" unless it is in relationship to another human, who would also have "rights". When rights conflict, then the correctness of one right over another must be in terms of practicality, applicability, proportionate equality, common sense and "scope". The one size fits all is a fallacious approach that goes beyond any legitimate reason and scope. Ted Cooper updated his status. Raven's Child vs. Obama Conservative vs.Liberal John Denver's song, Raven's Child, was an environmentalist's protest song against illicit dealings in drugs, arms and oil, and correctly so. The Obama administration saw some of the worst of these dealings. Opioid usage had its worst increase under Obama. Obama may have had no problem in trying to do away with the 2nd Amendment, but he also had no problem in selling arms to Vietnam and elsewhere. And the worst oil spill ever occurred under Obama's watch. Now we have Donald Trump, and some of those calling themselves "liberal" who may profess to believe in John Denver's protest are out to do Trump in before he even has a chance. On the other hand, we have republicans who call themselves "conservative" who advocate increased fossil fuel usage. So there seems to be some confusion between what is "liberal" and what is "conservative". Let's start with "conservative" which basically means "not aggressive", "sparingly", "cautiously", "protectively", "responsibly", etc. It does not mean complete elimination. To be an "environmentalist" is to be a "conservative". To be one who says "Don't chop down any trees at all" is not being a conservative environmentalist, but is being an extremist nut job. To be one who says "Let's stop using fossil fuel entirely" is to be an extremist nut job. To be one who says "Let's ban all weapons" is to be an extremist nut job. As C S Lewis said, "If you take just one cause and make it the one thing you must do at all costs, you wind up becoming a treacherous person". And so it is with any cause. On the other hand, we have the word "liberal" . It probably finds it's current meaning being derived from what we called a "Liberal Education", which meant "broad", "more inclusive", "non-specific", etc. But today we find it going much further than that, meaning "aggressive", "without pause", "irresponsible", etc. "Swing the ax and let the chips fall where they may". Liberalism has become a threat to our way of life. And oddly enough, there are those republicans who claim to be conservative, yet are quite liberal in their pursuit of fossil fuel. When it comes right down to it, we must not be so "conservative" that we dare do nothing. That is cowardice. On the other hand, we must not be so "liberal" that we say "To hell with everything. I want everything my way". A balance between the two is needed that allows continuation of the old while we transgress into the new. Donald Trump needs to be given a chance. We have far to many threats from abroad to be engaging in the petty domestic squabbling that has been going on. While we are sitting here worrying about & fighting over our health and our peckers, we have nut jobs abroad who want to shove nukes down our throats. SO JUST COOL IT DUDE! Ted Cooper updated his status. So, you do not understand how I could become one of those "Jesus Freaks" and wind up believing in a mythological God. Well, the answer is probably as long as my life. But in a nutshell, let me put it this way. Responsible forgiveness is part of loving, just as obedience is part of loving. Notice I did not just say "forgiveness is part of loving". I qualified it with the word "responsible" which means a quid pro quo. Some may say that "love means never having to say your sorry". But that would require absolute perfection, the likes of which can only be found in one Jesus Christ. So we, being imperfect, find ourselves having to say "I'm sorry" with the hope of being forgiven by those we have offended and with whom we seek a continued relationship. But a strange paradox occurs in that we cannot be forgiven unless we ourselves are capable of forgiving. So the question becomes, just exactly who do we forgive? More specifically, who should we forgive first? It is not uncommon for us humans to have wishes and pray to God, only to find those prayers unanswered and thus conclude there is no God. But let me say this. If nothing else, God is the ultimate perfect character who sets a role model for us to follow. You believe in the characters of a novel and their ways, do you not? And so the Bible describes in every detail the essence of that ultimate perfect character, whether He is real or not. If you find yourself ultimately dismissing every aspect of that character, because He did not fulfill your wishes, then you are headed in the wrong direction, just as Pinocchio strayed away. To cut your ties to an all loving God is the equivalent of casting away your boat's rudder in a stormy ocean. Early Christianity was first known as "The Way". Stripped of all else, the very last thing we humans have to help us survive is "hope". "The Way" is the way based upon hope. The way may have various side routes for each of us individually. No matter the route, we all ultimately hope that we wind up in the arms of an all-loving God. You might deny that reality now, but I guarantee the day will come that will be your deepest desire. However, if we find ourselves at war with God and do not forgive Him, how can we ever wind up in His arms? The jail door is shut closed never to be opened again for us.So in answer to the question "Who do we forgive", the answer is "We must forgive God first if we truly love Him". And then we must say "I'm sorry". Associated with love and forgiveness comes the word "patience". As we grow older, we invariably find ourselves running out of patience. In the 1960's there was a toon going around depicting 2 vultures sitting on a limb exclaiming "Patience, hell, I'm going to kill something". Where it may have been funny, it did represent a truth about living. The problem with running out of patience is that it leads us to filthy language which can become a very bad character disorder. It is probably our greatest sin that disrupts peaceful living for those innocents around us. So I find it necessary to clean out my mouth once a week by attending church services. I may have been a B+ or A- student in school. But in the school of life, I want to be an A+. I want to be as correct as I can be, not for the sake of ego and pride, not for the sake of admiration, but for the sake of the truth. And to me, Jesus Christ offers the way to truth. Jesus Christ is the real physical evidence of the existence of God. Furthermore, He is the truth and the only real hope for humanity. What I have seen and witness first hand in 76 years of life concludes me to believe that righteous humanity needs every break it can get with the quid-pro-quo of relatively simple reciprocity & self accountability. There never can be, nor should there be, a life of continuous free lunches all at the expense of the truly righteous. Troubled souls must ultimately find their own way given the guideposts along the way. In the end, we all must walk that lonesome valley on our own, our hope being for our own betterment and the betterment of righteous humanity. So do I believe that Jesus Christ was real? You bet I do. Do I believe that He rose from the dead. There is too much evidence for me not to believe it. There were over 500 individual accounts of people seeing Jesus extending over 40 days after the crucifixion. And if He rose from the dead, then He must be the Son of God, if not God Himself. I say He is God, thus settling the question of the existence of God. Is God dead? Not if He rose from the dead. And what of the Holy Spirit? Is it real? This is the really tough one to answer, but let me try. The fact that Christianity grew rapidly after Jesus's resurrection and in the face of extreme adversity (ie, the persecution by the Roman Empire) gives evidence that the Holy Spirit is real. The disciple Paul's encounter with Jesus must have been real. In my own life, I am not one to be able to calm myself, particularly during times of severe unemployment. Yet at one of the most lowest points in my life, a calming voice told me "I will restore your job"., That was not me talking to myself. I can only attribute it to the Holy Spirit, the Comforter. It is the source of real self assurance and confidence. I just wish I could encounter more of it. "Hocus pocus" you say? I'ld be one of the very last people to believe in the super natural. To me, Nostradamus was a total joke in college when everybody else was terrified the world was coming to an end. Seances and fortune telling are a bunch of nonsense. Faith healing is not something I would lean into. I still find it difficult to believe that the devil exists, although i have had so many surprises in the past it would not catch me off guard.. And UFOs guided by intelligent life is way down my list of real things. But I have to say, I have seen those strange lights in the sky on two very rare occasions. They were not hallucinations. So yes, I believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, ie, the Trinity, 3 in1. I believe they are real. And I believe they are the ultimate and only hope for human existence. Do I insist on imposing my religious views on others? Absolutely not, unless they are in my face with their religion as there has been quite a bit of lately since 911 with respect to Islam & Sharia Law which is a complete rejection of Jesus Christ.. Nevertheless, I believe that it is up to each individual to make their own choice. But I do insist on appropriate human behavior and punishment befitting the crime. And I am thankful for the freedoms that I have been afforded in my lifetime. I've had my share of problems, but when it comes right down to it, as my father used to say, "Someone is looking over my shoulder", although sometimes I did not see that to be true in his case in his later years. I only wish he could have had a better ending. And I wish I could have been a better son. Ted Cooper updated his status. The conscience that seeks the path to relative righteousness and justice may sometimes seem conflicted. It has been said that the road to hell is filled with good intentions. Yet still we must not dismiss its goal of intentional appropriateness nor reject its ultimate goodness when the proof is in the pudding. When it comes love and just punishment, the truly loving parent is not afraid to say "This hurts me more than it hurts you, but it is for your own good", provided that the punishment is just and not abusively beyond appropriate. That can be said of Jesus Christ. And it can be said of Abraham Lincoln who believed in Jesus Christ. Lincoln may have plunged this country into a bloody civil war by forcing the South into captivity, but he also made every effort to heal the wounds he inflicted. The South may have been right in its effort to secede for the purpose of maintaining peace, but it was also exercising a dual hypocritical standard of slavery which was unacceptable to the Federal Constitution to which it had agreed and the moral principles of Christianity. Yet there are those squeamish more recently sitting on the bench of judgment who call themselves "justices" and would decry any such just and appropriate punishment, claiming it to be be "mean spirited", or "cruel and unusual". They put on their fine robes dressed as any ritualistic high priest to proclaim their moral high ground, and pick on just one unspecified Law Of Moses, "Thou shalt not kill", as if it were some absolute principle. They completely fail to investigate the common sense specificity of that law and its scope of applicability and practicality, as well as the exceptions to it. And there is an exception to it which is clearly spelled out in the same Old Testament, only a different chapter. If they had any sense of putting 2 and 2 together, they might come to understand that what is really meant is "Thou shalt not deliberately take another innocent person's life without their explicit or implicit consent". "Implicit consent" can be construed to mean through action other than through word. This is more complete and throws an entirely different light upon the real meaning of the law. Nevertheless, they have chosen to emphasize the alleged human rights of just one (1) individual over the general welfare of the broader society. We must always ask, "Which path is for the greater good?".All things and all causes must be taken into consideration when making decisions that have an irreversible impact upon the outcome of what is really best for humanity, with recognition that the loss of some lives may be for the ultimate betterment of humanity and moral righteousness. That does not mean we go about indiscriminately blowing people up when we know absolutely nothing about them, or on behalf of some half-assed religious ideology that asserts it knows what is best for humanity. Nor does it mean we execute people who have not been well proven to have deliberately taken the life of another innocent person without their consent. Nor does it mean we go about murdering people with whom we disagree politically, as in the movie The Last Super. Nor does it mean that we execute homosexuals for being homosexual, as did Randy White. Nor does it mean that we execute people for blasphemy against the God in who we profess to believe, as do Islamics. Nor does it mean we lie and slander, as do the current day news media. Nor does it mean that we setup kangaroo courts that have no explicit powers of judicial review mentioned anywhere in the Constitution to overrule our democracy and persecute those with whom those in power disagree, all justified by precedence (ie, tradition) as did Caiaphas in his execution of Jesus Christ. But Dietrich Bonhoeffer correctly made that decision for the greater good when he joined in attempts to assassinate Hitler. And Harry Truman correctly made that studied and discriminate decision in his determination that more innocent lives would be saved by taking the lives of a relatively few enemies (and innocents) when he dropped the bomb. And capital punishment is justified when the proof is without the shadow of a doubt, not only for the betterment of society, but for the just closure of irreparable pain on the part of victims' families who are traumatized over and over again by repeated parole hearings, negligent guards, and failed prison facilities. Of course we must never use this "path for the greater good" as justification for laziness in attempts at having our own way and not taking the road lest traveled. At the same time, we must not abandon those who have taken that road lest traveled for our sake, or our brethren, or our countrymen under the guise of maintaining the moral high ground, as did the Pharisees and Sadducees, and as are the so-called "sanctuary" cities of today. The prostitution of a country is still prostitution that seeks to completely avoid the road lest traveled with the false justification of compassion and improved financial gain for all. Nevertheless, it invariably results in negligence in dealing with inappropriate behavior, and hence lower standards with greater hypocrisy and chaos. You may think that unfettered freedom is a "good" thing for humanity, but it is not. A free-for-all is still a free-for-all and a brawl. And as C S Lewis said in Mere Christianity, "you may think that love of humanity is a safe place to be. But if you make it your single most cause that you must follow at all costs, then you eventually find yourself lying and providing false witness on behalf of humanity and becoming a treacherous person" , meaning you betray those closest to you. Under such circumstance, how can you honestly and legitimately proclaim to love everybody when you betray those closest and dearest to you and become complicit with murderers & thieves? And if they are only thieves you support, do you have any proof of their restitution. Jean Valjean of Les Miserables went well beyond the call of making restitution. Without restitution, forgiveness is a joke. Even Jesus Christ said, "there is no forgiveness for blasphemy against the Holy Spirit". That means there must be accountability, without which It is hypocrisy and void of demonstrating any trust worthiness or credibility. Even those on whose behalf you speak can see your negligence and lying for personal and political gain. And once they have won through your efforts, they themselves will turn against you for their own betterment, thus throwing out the absolute cause for which you so valiantly fought. As Jesus Christ said, "Do not cast your pearls before pigs". What better pearls do you have other than your own family, friends, and countrymen who you now seek to betray?. You cannot be that beautiful city on the hill for all to model after if you are a completely opened city and allow the self serving to betray and dominate. Of course the "boss" of an opened city is always going to be a tyrant who is always going to have his own way. And he will probably always be too little to administer real justice and real righteousness. Al Capone almost became mayor of Chicago at one time, all because of his "compassionate" soup kitchens. Compassion is not compassion when it has no demand for appropriate reciprocity. Instead, it becomes a phony bribery front for self serving interests. Freedom is not freedom when it goes unfettered. And justice is not justice when it perpetuates more prolonged pain than it relieves. As Jesus Christ said, "By their fruits you will know them". Righteousness means maintaining relative balance & perspective within your own political system, but with a 3rd eye upon the global environment. To insist upon world wide cultural/ moral homogeneity and impose your own standards upon other cultures is to kill true diversity and inspire conflict. Christianity recognized that a long time ago and is now a religion of free choice, not one of imposition. Winning over other cultures requires the setting of an example on the global stage, not instigating demonstrations and conflicts over same-sex marriage in other countries, not punishing other nations for their internal affairs of which you have no business, not by entering another country illegally and demanding your rights to be there, etc. One nation poking its nose into the internal affairs of another should be an absolute no-no. Amnesty International may be causing more global conflict than it resolves, being something like a nosy neighbor. Live and let live is what is really best for humanity. As that now famous philosopher Rodney King once ask, "Can't we all just get along?". At the same time, there are areas of common interests that should be the joint concern of all nations. Maintaining a global vigilance against threats to global peace (like radical Islam, like Iran, like North Korea) is an obvious necessity. Regulation of international waters is another area of common concern. And it is beginning to look like even the atmosphere is becoming a common concern. Whether or not we humans are responsible for global warming is one thing, But certainly global pollution of oceans & air has become perfectly obvious. The relative consequences of human activity is best managed not by regulations, but by each individuals own personal responsible behavior, the absence of which requires the regulation and rule of law. Unfortunately the Rodney King's of the world have consistently found it to be necessary to impose the rule of law, but with as little of it as possible, lest it become a detriment to humanity itself. Rodney forgot to add "Can't we all be responsible human beings and cleanup after ourselves. On the other hand, there are those whose every answer to every problem is to institute some statutory law despite the most obvious problematic answers and commonsense, thus increasing the likely hood of humanity being buried under burdensome laws. This has become more obvious with respect to red tape that is directly proportional to global population and the threats by rogues to disrupt global peace over whatever stupid perspectives they may have. No matter, it all increases the coffers of lawyers who would all be out of work if they really solved any problems. Ted Cooper This is REALLY IRONIC AND HYPOCRITICAL considering that ABC's 20-20 program engaged in the same type of unlawful filming of restaurant customers reactions to a setup scenario whereby 2 non-English speaking Mexicans would go up to the order counter, try to place an order in Spanish, only to told by the the counter clerk to speak in English. ABC's under-cover camera would then query the customers of their reaction to the scenario, and if the customers agreed with the counter clerk, then those customers would be labeled "racists". TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE AND UNLAWFUL. NO DIFFERENCE HERE, ONLY SELECTIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT IS THE OPERATIVE, NOT CONSISTENCY. After that little episode, I stopped watching ABC altogether and never will watch that station again.

Suicide - The Good, Bad, and Ugly. The Good. 1. Soldiers with PTSS who seek to escape their nightmares through suicide deserve help. 2. Murderers who commit suicide without harming anyone else do society a favor. 3. Euthanasia when it is clear that a more dreadful death is immediate and certain. 4. Masada to avoid more brutal death at the hands of an enemy. The Bad. 5. When used for the purposes of emotional hostage taking & ransom con jobs. 6. Participation in suicide assistance when there are other fair options. The Ugly. 7 Suicide bombers and mass murderers who indiscriminately take innocent peoples lives along with them. 8. Jim Jones 9. Heavens Gate And now we ask: "Did Jesus Christ not voluntarily commit suicide for the betterment of humanity"? If so, that says a lot about the morality/immorality of homicidal/suicidal murder and provides guidance for our so-called criminal justice system. Ted Cooper There are various legitimate reasons for estrangement between father and son, homosexual behavior being one. But with as many illegitimate children and broken homes as there are today, it is not surprising to see homosexuality on the rise and people looking for love in all of the wrong places. Yet still, the option of divorce is far better than allowing the "hardness of the heart" to grow into outright murder of one's spouse. And the same holds true when divorcing from one's adult wayward child. Whether or not the same holds true for a nation and its division into separate autonomous states is still a matter of political discourse. But one thing has been proven to be correct, and that is that group decision making increases the chances for survival. However, if it is no longer possible to civilly engage in group decision making, then separation into states may be the only reasonable option as long as there is general agreement not to engage in further conflict with each other.

We need more like her. Updated Jun 20, 2017, 9:16 AM Ted Cooper When Gabby Gifford was shot, we prayed for her recovery. But the lying liberal left DOES NOT EVEN HAVE THE DECENCY TO DO THE SAME. They are disgusting and ruining this country. Updated Jun 19, 2017, 11:49 PM Ted Cooper ON FATHER'S DAY: I was COMPLETELY SHOCKED & INCENSED to see a Japanese film documentary on REFUGEES OF THE 2oth CENTURY that described how starving Russian women in the 1920's cannibalized their own children. Whether or not they killed their children for food remains uncertain, but that seemed to be the implication. And if so, there needs to be some serious consideration to prevent this from happening, along with legitimate means or curtailing population explosions beyond the means of support. Captain Bligh of the Bounty, as much hated as he was, WAS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT IN HIS DEMAND FOR DISCIPLINE THAT RULED OUT CANNIBALISM. HE & HIS LOYAL CREW SURVIVED. THE MUTINEERS DID NOT. And although there have been other instances of cannibalism under dire circumstances, ie, the Donner Party & the Argentine Soccer Team, it is a very dangerous slope to go down and one which victims of the Holocaust did not practice. It is highly doubtful that Jesus Christ would endorse any cannibalism, and it is important that His metaphors not be taken so literally when He obviously meant that civilized behavior is more important than self survival. To obscure His teachings with self seeking, self justifying agendas is a sin in itself. Children should not be brought into this world only to be exploited, be it for religious reasons, political reasons, or economic reasons. And certainly not for consumption as food. Nor should a child be aborted to be used for body parts, food or profit, but only when when the mother's life is at stake. If a person becomes a parent by mistake, then it is his/her duty to lay down his/her life for that child as long as it is a dependent child (excluding rape). That opportunity was granted Moses when, as an infant, his mother set him afloat on the Nile. .And if something threatens the life of their child, then it is the parents duty to protect that child without treating other innocent people unfairly/unjustly. And if the child treats others unfairly, then it is the parents duty to correct that child, even if it means the just capital punishment of that child as the penalty for the child's deliberate murder of innocent people. Beyond the barbaric exploitation of children just described, the documentary pointed out how such abhorrent behavior is the result of improper human motive & conflict. And upon this subject I would elaborate in terms relevant to today's political atmosphere which reeks of the stench of injustice, slander, unlawfulness, untruthfulness, and hypocrisy, which in turn would lead to the deprivations of civil war. For anybody, life's circumstances can be extremely difficult to deal with. Nobody ever said you have the right to earn the same work reward as everybody else. Nobody ever said you have the right to be a pig in squandering far more than you'll ever need. Nobody ever said that there is to be equality for all and in all matters. Nevertheless, discipline and adherence to just behavior and forgiveness is paramount to the survival of the human species, regardless of any one individual or societal/cultural preference. But today we are seeing very little of that proper, disciplined, & just behavior. With respect to alleged religious freedom, that freedom should only exist for those religions that acknowledge the right of the individual to have the freedom to believe according to his/her own conscience. Quite obviously, radical theologies, like Islam that practice Sharia Law and do not acknowledge this individual right, have no place in a country that advocates democratic freedom. Why would you grant freedoms to a theological ideology that does not grant individual freedom? It is hypocrisy. Were today's Christianity to accept the freedom granted it and not extend the same freedom to individuals, it would be stamped out in a heartbeat, Christiphobia being rampant enough. Such religions enslave and exploit their own children. With respect to illegal migration and cultural invasion, nobody ever said you have the right to trespass into another culture's nation. On a mass scale, that is unjust behavior & tantamount to war. And to come to a foreign country, refuse to assimilate, refuse to speak the host language, and then march in protests of your alleged civil rights using your children to benefit yourselves is uncivil in itself and beyond insult. Your behavior, which is undisciplined, unjust, unlawful, unforgiving, and unchristian, is to be condemned, deserving of deportation. Yes there are those who would support your unlawful behavior and stupidly argue in the name of diversity, failing to acknowledge that each culture demands its own habitat and that commingling actually destroys diversity. All they have done is to divide a nation & create an environment that has no common understanding or reason. With respect to past historical racial injustices, those unjust acts that happened 100+ years ago are NOT THE FAULT OF THE PERPETRATORS' PROGENY OF TODAY UNLESS THEY CONTINUE TO ADVANCE THE HATRED OF THEIR PREDECESSORS. But on the larger scale, that is not happening within this country. Therefore, those riots and protests based upon generalized non-specific allegations of wide-spread racism are untrue and unjust, inspiring wide-spread incivility contrary to disciplined justice. There is absolutely NO JUSTIFICATION for looting and burning down legitimate and innocent business establishments, unless those establishments are also participating in racism. Such behavior is no different than undisciplined indiscriminate mass murder, and teaches children to behave similarly. By the same token, there is NO REASON to accuse today's Russian women of cannibalism or today's children of WWII aggressors of inspiring war. In other words, THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS MUST CUT OFF WITH THE PROGENY OF PERPETRATORS IF THOSE CHILDREN DO NOT ADVANCE THE CRIMES OF THEIR FATHERS, LEST FURTHER INJUSTICE IS PERPETUATED. With respect to those pigs (rich and poor) who seek the easy way to life, you are a parasite to a disciplined and just society, either squandering more than you need or sucking the teat of a benevolent society beyond your legitimate needs. I am speaking to the CEOs of large companies who earn disproportionately far more than your workers when compared to the relative values offered. I am speaking to those food stamp exploiters who refuse to seek employment. I am speaking to those politicians who pass laws that do not pertain to themselves, make deals behind closed doors and would prostitute our country for fame or fortune. I am speaking to those foundations that have taken donations and demonstrated absolutely no results for the benevolent purposes alleged. I am speaking to those judges whose sense of justice has become convoluted with a false sense of love, misconstrued the intent of our Constitution, usurped its powers beyond those explicitly granted, and who have prostituted our country. You are all blights on a just society and its children and deserving of condemnation. Finally, with respect to those whose sexual practices are abnormal, we don't really care to have your sickening garbage in our face, including plays like Corpus Christi and unholy marriages. Your selfishness is clear enough and unacceptable. True, you have suffered injustices not befitting your foul behavior. But such injustices are addressed under conventional law, punishing those murderers like Randy White. That should suffice for the purposes of legitimate justice. And true, there are those who have been born with questionable reproductive apparatus. But today's medical procedures can rectify that. No matter, that is not enough for many of you who would force your foul practices upon the children of a disciplined/ just/lawful/Christian society and unseat the rule of democratic practices all for your own warped selfish interests. And for that you are or will be condemned. That said, you can be forgiven IF YOU REPENT AND CORRECT YOUR OWN BEHAVIOR BOTH IN PUBLIC AND IN PRIVATE WHERE THE LORD DOES SEE YOU. You alone have the freedom to accept and obey the Lord Jesus Christ or not. And you alone are ultimately responsible for your own outcome through your own behavior, nobody else.

I am not one to take a Pollyanna approach to life and find that there is "good" in even the worst evil. But when confronted with evil, I reevaluate my beliefs. Prior to 911, I had pretty much given up on God. But after the attacks on innocent people by what was previously thought to be just another religion, I began asking questions about Islam and seeking answers. And I found them. What I came to learn was that Jesus Christ is God in contrast to Islamic belief that came 600 years after Christ and completely rejects Jesus Christ. In other words, the God of Islam IS NOT THE SAME GOD of Christians. So exactly who are the real bigots of the world? Of course, atheists reject the idea of there being any God at all. But to them I would ask "Why are you arrogantly so closed minded?". As an intelligent being, I would not go so far as to proclaim "There is no God". That is absolutely stupid, because we all know that not one single human sees all and knows all things. Who do you think you are, the Great Karnac? Scientist admit that we know only 3% of all things in the universe. So are you saying you know more than the scientists know? Of course you can hypothesize there to be no God. But to say you know for a fact there is no God is to be a liar. The most honest thing you can say is simply "I don't really know". And you can go further and say "I don't really care". But don't go around condemning others simply because they do care, unless of course their beliefs result in irresponsible behavior that puts others at risk, such as Heavens Gate or Jim Jones or David Koresh or excessive bleeding hearts or the brutality of Sharia/Jihadism.

And he heads up the investigation into Clinton emails? Updated May 6, 2017, 8:01 AM Ted Cooper The JUDICIAL SYSTEM SUCKS and has sucked for 45 years now. In 1972, a white married man murdered his white wife in front of his children shooting her 9 times. He was arrested and sent to jail. During the subsequent investigation, a witness close to the murderer told the police he had planned it 6 months earlier. At his first arraignment, the stupid judge said that "BECAUSE OF THE BAN ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, THERE IS NO CRIME THAT CAN BE HELD WITHOUT BAIL". With money from his mommy, the murderer was released on$25,000 bail. The district attorneys prosecuting the case took it before a grand jury stating that it was a torture crime. The man was again put in jail, after which he was again released on another $25,000 bail. Up to the time of his criminal trial which occurred 9 months following, he was allowed to seek custody of the children and sued for his wife's life insurance of$20,000. He lost both law suits, but instead of the children getting $20,000, they only got$10,000, due to attorney fees.

By the time his criminal trial came around, the witness who stated that the murderer planned to kill his wife 6 months prior recanted his statement. As a result, the judge excluded the charge of deliberate 1st degree homicide, reducing the charge to 2nd degree murder. The murderer was found guilty and sentenced to 15 years to life. At the end of the trial, the judge called the children who testified against their father into his chambers. He told them "FORGIVE AND FORGET". While in jail, the father sent his son a picture of him in jail with a couple of other inmates and wrote upon it, "GOOD CLEAN CUT CHRISTIAN BOYS". He was out of jail only after serving 3 years behind bars.

That is our so-called justice system. It has become hard to tell who is more guilty, the perpetrator or the judge. And the so-called justice system has become more negligent and more worthless as time progresses. Yet it is now telling the states, the Congress, and even the President of the US what they can and cannot do. IT IS TIME FOR JUDICIAL SYSTEM REFORM. IT NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO THE CITIZENRY AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

It is easy to look up at the night sky and surmise that it is all the work of the personage of God who is seen as being all-knowing, all-intelligent, and thus a supernatural entity. But scientists looks at the details of life here on earth, question the disparity between the geological record and religious record, and have concluded with the theory of evolution in denial of the existence of God. They argue that life has evolved from the very smallest of creatures, the microbe, whose beginning is the result of unknown physical processes. They imply that we humans are the result of an ongoing assemblage (community) of micro-organisms. They also argue that we are the most intelligent beings on the planet due to the ratio of our brain size to our body size.

So now I ask a very simple question. We humans along with other animals have "learned" to breath, a process we have not completely understood until very recently. Breathing requires a knowledge of air pressure variants & how to manipulate them for the purposes of oxygen delivery. So exactly where & how did a community of micro-organisms (who are seen to be less intelligent than ourselves) acquire this knowledge of breathing if not from a more intelligent preexisting being? A process of trial and error implies a search for some predefined desired goal, such as the search for food. But how does the search for food result in a community intelligence capable of building a breathing apparatus as sophisticated as our own lungs?

One might argue that air is a fluid like water, and that therefore the breathing apparatus was a natural extension of a fishes gills. But once again we ask "From where did the intelligence come that enabled a bunch of micro-organisms to assemble a fish's gills?". At this point, scientists might argue that it was merely a serendipitous hap-hazard discovery and not the result of preexisting knowledge. So it would seem that some scientists might be saying that there is no such thing as preexisting knowledge except that it be previously learned through hap-hazard circumstance. This amounts to nothing less than complete narrow mindedness to which I object given the knowledge of the actual fact of Jesus Christ. If true, then there have been one hell of a lot of serendipitous hap-hazard beneficial events that require a recognition and an intelligence to exploit which is contrary to even the nature of modern man.

Responsibility and accountability are required when behavior is deliberate, within the realm of reasonable control, and unjustified. "Forgive them, they know not what they do" and "who so ever speaks against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven" express this principle. In other words, there is no such thing as unconditional forgiveness, except that it be on the part of God.

That said, penalties for breaking the law must be commensurate with the immediate consequences of the crime committed. Justice demands that the penalties do not exceed the consequences of the crime, but also that the penalties not be so lenient or untimely as to encourage continue law breaking and further suffering of victims, thereby denying closure. Of course the penalty of the execution of a well proven murderer does not exceed the crime committed by the murderer.

Penalties for violations of crime prevention must not be treated the same as the actual commission of the crime itself, but should be much lesser in effect since no actual crime was committed. However, as an exception, in the case of self defense which is considered to be "crime preventing", it may be that the initiator of a sequence of criminal events be permanently dispatched within the threat time frame before he can commit unjustified murder, said result constituting "justifiable homicide".

Extreme left vs. extreme right. The fact of life is, no matter which direction you go, if you go far enough you wind up being no better than that which you claim to be against. That being said, capital punishment, when correctly applied, cannot be equated with unjustified murder, BECAUSE IT GIVES CLOSURE TO THE VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIME, AND TO NOT DO SO IS A CRIME IN ITSELF AMOUNTING TO CRUEL AND UNUSUAL TORTURE.

It is the state's duty to oversee and enforce the laws for the purposes of protecting its citizens. What we have witnessed in the last 5o years is the ever increasing gross negligence of duty at all levels of the state, all inspired by gutless politicians and jurists and based upon the alleged unfettered power of judicial review of the court which is not specified in the Constitution.

The day is coming when there will be so much tolerance for violent crimes that one group will have had enough and will ultimately violently overthrow any remaining government to become an oppressive dictatorship exceeding the cruelty of North Korea and Sharia Law.

JUSTICE vs. HISTORICAL TRUTH

Justice must be "timely" meaning that unless a crime such as murder has been committed, then a statute of limitations for meaningful criminal prosecution must apply, lest the prosecution turn into the crime of persecution. That said, the purpose of an "investigation" must be disclosed to identify it as an investigation for criminal prosecution purposes or simply for historical purposes that cannot be used for criminal charges

The problem with the extreme lying liberal left is they want to continue prosecution for alleged crimes that are historical in nature and include the progeny of the alleged perpetrators, therefore advocating for criminal persecution that can be labeled as slander.

If the left wants to engage in conspiracy theories, then we can too. Here's one. George Soros paid the Clinton campaign to hire Christopher Steele who in turn paid British agents to convey information about Trump associates.

ABSOLUTE BULL SHIT ! If British Intelligence is so damned smart, then how is it they waited until after Trump's nomination to inform US intelligence? HOW CONVENIENT IS THAT? Certainly in their diligent on going monitoring of Russian activity they would have "incidentally" intercepted conversations LONG BEFORE OUR ELECTION PROCESS AND NOTIFIED OUR OWN FBI WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING TRUMP ASSOCIATES LONG BEFORE TRUMP WAS EVEN NOMINATED. THIS IS JUST A CROCK, BECAUSE THE BRITISH HATE TRUMP AS EVIDENCED BY THEIR OBNOXIOUS BEHAVIOR WELL OVER A YEAR AGO, WHEREIN THEY SOUGHT TO BAN TRUMP FROM ENTRY INTO THEIR COUNTRY. IT IS NOT THE RUSSIANS MEDDLING IN OUR ELECTIONS, IT IS THE BRITISH..

Timeline of Christopher Steele's erroneously dated reports:

Report 80 is dated Jun 20 2016.

Report 94 is dated Jul 19 2016

Report 95 is undated, but mentions Wikileaks release of DNC emails on Jul 22 2016.

Report 086 is mis-dated Jul 26 2015 talks at length about Russian hacking capability & mentions events in Jun 2016. Therefore, it must be report 096 originating on Jul 26 2016. Perhaps it was intentionally mis-dated.

Report 97 is dated Jul 30 2016

The Republican Convention was Jul 18-21 2016.

It would seem that in just 4 days between Jul 22 & Jul 26 that Mr Steele all of a sudden had one hell of a lot of information gathered, coinciding with the confirmed nomination of Mr Trump. It appears to be almost a KNEE-JERK REACTION more than a studied investigation.

So last summer the FBI was in fact monitoring Carter Page whose name was mentioned in the so-called report issued by Christopher Steele, the ex British MI-6 agent hired to dig up dirt on Trump. So exactly where did this foreign spy from Britain get his info? WHO LEAKED THE NAME OF CARTER PAGE TO HIM? HOW ABOUT THE FBI? Perhhaps the REAL "PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY" is that set up by Trump haters.

The Mathematics Of "I AM" And Identity Through Morality.

René Descartes said "I Think, Therefore I am". And one of the great quotes of the Bible is the voice of God saying "I AM". But who or what is this "I Am".

"I" is universally understood to be the number "one" or "1", ie, unity. And mathematics is based upon the repeatability of the number "1". But what is "1"? In science we talk about the "UNIverse", ie, "one" astro-physical entity. In politics we talk about "Solidarity", ie, "one" body. So an assemblage of different "1"s of differing identities can produce a single "1" with an entirely unique identity. In other words, "oneness" can arise from a bunch of "oneness's",ie, unity from unity.This should not be too hard to understand since we see it in our every day lives all the time.

Digressing for a moment from the mathematics of "oneness" , we must ask ourselves about the "goodness of unity", because there are those would insist that unity is always a "good" thing which is not always true. Suffice to say, the one of the Bible who calls Himself "I AM" elaborates upon what is "good" and what is "evil", thereby giving Himself a unique identity by virtue of His morality. If we accept this premise, then it should be clear that not all unities are "good" in terms of morality. But math knows not morality, despite what politicians may say. Bad "ones" can produce more bad "ones", just as "good" ones can produce more "good" ones. They are all still "ones" in mathematics.

Returning to the mathematics of unity, we still have not gotten down to the makeup of those "1"s of seemingly different identities that make up a larger whole. My mother use to tell me "I f I cut off you arm, are you still not you"?. And if I cut off more of your body parts, are you still not you?". And every time a scientist splits apart a subatomic particle, he only finds more particles. In other words, in our search for the smallest of "1"s we find only more "1"'s, that is until we find something that is more energy (or spirit) than matter. From a mathematical standpoint, the question is "Is that tiny little mustard seed repeatable or is it truly unique, never capable of being copied?"

So how small is "small" and how great is "great"? Is "THE 1" of the Bible who calls Himself "I AM" the very smallest of all or the very largest of all or both? It would seem that the mathematical answer is really trivial compared to the more important question of MORAL IDENTITY. I would submit that the one of the Bible who calls Himself "I AM" considers the propagation of His moral identity to be more important than the propagation of His numbers. So for now, I (this one little individual) will accept the Christian assemblage concept of 3-IN-1 which conveys "good unity from good unity" and is more positively constructive and less hypocritical (self contradictory) than any other idea. After all, who likes being proven more wrong & inconsistent than right?

Is there any doubt that Assad used chemical weapons? Apparently not, in which case Trump's action in Syria is correct. And if there are any questions about Trump being a Russian puppet, well those false accusations should be put to rest. Of greater concern is whether or not foreign intelligence was used to propagandize against Trump by the Obama admin.

Nevertheless, the Trump hating cry baby whiners will continue with their temper tantrums no matter what this POTUS does, because, quit simply, the only thing they enjoy is bitching about not being able to sell their mothers/daughters out for prostitution which is what they have done to this country
