Presidential Contests

Presidential Contests
A Modest Proposal for How to Select The Next President
Should there be One ( ? ) 
e.g. ( If AI ( The Singularity ) hasn’t taken over The World ) 

To Select The Next President;
An Initial Group of Say 60 or so Candidates will be Selected from The Nation’s Universities & Small Businesses that Satisfy The Minimal Requirements of :
Honorableness
Intelligence
Cultural Literacy
Mathematics & Science Literacy
Computer Literacy
Liberal Arts Literacy
Culinary Literacy & Natural Abilities to Prepare an UnReciped Meal from Available Scraps
World Literacy

Grooming Habits
Athletic Prowess
Sexual Appeal
Gamesmynship
Affability with Children
Affability with Animals
Competency with First Aid
Competency with Magical Illusions
Competency with Dancing
Any Number of Special or Comparatively Unique Talents
Size of Nuclear Family

Then A Neutral Sponsor would shunt them around The Country, 
& at each stop; The Local 3rd Graders would prepare a series of Tests or Contests for them to participate in. 
A The End of each 3 Rounds ( 3 City Stops ), The Feeblest 5% would be sent home.

Before The Contest Begins; 
Each Candidate would be given a long list of skills that they should be reasonably familiar with.

For Each Contest; 
A Representative 3rd Grader would perform The Task to Assure everyone that it wasn’t impossible, while providing hints or Structures as to How to Perform The Event.

Such as Bathing a Cat. A 3rd Grader would give a Cat a Bath, showing The Contestants How Best to Approach this Chore.

Other Possible Events :

Unable to Access Storage Device using Android File Transfer with Kindle Fire !

Bug : Unable to Access Storage Device 
         ( SanDisk 32Gb SD Memory Card ) 
This bug occurred sometime after purchase & usage, But for a time, it was accessible & i was able to load about 4.11Gb of Data onto it. 
            1,202 Photos
            702Mb of Music
            701Mb of Games
            4 Audio Books
            39 Books
            1 NewsStand Item
            3 Personal Videos
The SD Card itself seems to be working properly; as i am able to access all files located on it with The Usual Fire Methods & The File Manager App. 
The Bug is that when i use my Macbook Air with The Android File Transfer Application; The Storage Device becomes invisible; But The Screen on my Macbook Air reveals that The SD Card is in Use & that 25±Gb are Free. 
- - -
After looking on The Internet for Occurrences & Solutions for this Anomaly, i have discovered that it is occurring across The Board on other Devices; With The Android File Transfer Application as The Common Denominator.
- - -
The Kindle Fire was Purchased on June 3rd 2016
The Device is Currently Running : Fire OS 5.1.4 / June 20th 2016
Update : July 25th 2016 ( The Bug was existent before this update ) 
- - -
Android File Transfer Application 
            Version 1.0
            Last Update : October 16 2012
- - -
Solutions that i’ve Tried :
            Tried Connecting to The Fire with 3 Different USB Cables, 1 with The White Bar, & 2 with The Black Bar on The Computer End Connector. 
             — Error Remains
            Tried Fiddling with The MTP Options Selector in The Notification Shade ( Comes up while connected to The Macbook Air ) / it has two Options MTP & PTP. MTP is The Default Connection Mode. There is no AFT Setting, which is mentioned in The Internet suggestions. 
             MTP = Media Device / All Purpose Default Setting
             PTP = Camera / Dedicated Photo Transfers ( ? )
             — Error Remains
            Tried Connecting while both The MacBook Air & Kindle Fire were Connected to Wifi Internet.
             — Error Remains
            Tried Connecting to my ‘Other’ ( Earlier Version ) Kindle Fire & The Storage Device on it WAS Accessible. 
             — Error seems to be with The New Gen 5 Kindle Fire, But under what circumstances did it begin ( ? ) 
             If i were casting stones; i might blame an App, probably one that uses a lot of memory, like Real Racing 3. 
            Tried Connecting to The MacBook Air, Turning off The Kindle, So that it would ‘Charge’ more efficiently; then Turned it back on, Connected with The AFT Application.
             — Error Remains
            Tried Connecting to the MacBook Air, turned The Kindle Fire off by holding The Power-Key down for 5_seconds or so. Waited for a few minutes. Turned it back on, then reconnected to The MacBook Air with The AFT Application. 
             Had to pull The Cable several Times and Reconnect to get the AFT Application to Connect with The Fire.
             — Error Remains
: - - - - - - - - - : o
Try : 
            Try Kindle Help / Support Directly
            Try Wireless Transfer Tool
            Try / Transferring files to The Device, Then move them to The SD Card with The File Manager App 
- - - 
Solution : 
Simply Unmount The SD Card, Then Remount it !
Procedure :
Settings / Device-Storage / 
At The Very Bottom of this Menu Selection :
Safely Remove SD Card / Click on this 
Wait The Device to ReStart
Wait a moment or two; For no particular Reason.
Remount The SD 
Check to See if your Android File Transfer recognized The Storage Device ? 
Success ?

A Small Note on 'Minimum Wages'

Chrstphre Campbell This has been coming up so very often; That we need to be 'more' clear about what we mean by 'Minimum' Wage. Certainly in the case of sweat-shop labor positions, these women are working for slave wages. But in more industrialized/Technological Societies, Small Business absolutely need to be able to pay entry-level workers an entry-level wage. Maybe we should redefine how wages work, and put time-limits on not only Entry-Level positions, but most other tiers as well, until a worker enters a 'journeyman' level or becomes a certified jedi-knight. Then their wages are bound to proficiency and work-ethic. ( ? )

The Principle Reasons that i Hate Science

The Principle Reasons that i Hate Science :

The Difference between Smart & Dumb People or Clever Scientists & Gullible Pedestrians is that while both of these groups believe in all sorts of ridiculous things; The Clever Ones, that aren’t always any smarter than The dumb ones; Make up Ingenious Arguments as to why their Silly Beliefs are Right & The Dull Peoples Ideas are All Wrong.  Barring that; They’ll resort to cheap attacks of The Sort that Small, Rude Children would find beneath themselves to use on their playmates.  

When Scientists, Pundits & Other Learned Myn or Gullible Skeptics Insist on Peddling their Truth; i might counter that their Truth is merely Today’s Orthodoxy— Which are Routinely Overthrown by The Next Generation of Scientists, Pundits, Learned Myn & The Common Seed which want to cosy up to Whichever side has control of The Overlords of Our Democratic Republican Government or The Yellow Journalism Media & Celebrity Whores that sell themselves for a Bag of Peanuts as Pitchmyn for any SnakeOil or Insurance Fraud.

Knowing, or Believing what is True, or Accurate or Reasonable— 
Is very Difficult. 
You can pick a source that you ‘Want’ to believe is Reliable, But even a moment’s reflection of their Record will reveal that it is Invariably Spotted. You may Try to Draw from many Sources, but this only leads to Confusion & Uncertainty. 
Most people Strongly Prefer to be Confident with Some Viewpoint, Rather than Correct. In most every Example of this; These people do Not hold Positions of Policy Determination, So that it’s Inconsequential. But when they do; It may Effect The Lives of Millions or Billions of People, or Change The Course of History for Centuries to Come. 
The Way that Computers are Presently Designed ( Principally by IBM, MicroSoft & Apple ) will Persist for Another Hundred Years, Before it’s finally Discarded & Computers & Cogitators are ReDesigned from The Bottom Up.
Those few that are seeking to find some Greater Truth are Frustrated by this; But What does it really matter ? 
What is The Functionality of Knowing True Things, When it is Obviously Apparent that people have been getting along perfectly well for Millenia on Folk-Beliefs, Rules of Thumb, Pragmatic Approximations & Enduring The Average Intelligence of The Damp Masses. 

: - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - : o 

Case Points :

The Demotion of Pluto to a Junior Dwarf Planet
- - - 
The Big Bang Itself / On The face of it; It’s just ridiculous ! How has it possibly become such an intrenched idea— Unless it’s all some sort of trick to see who’s The Type to play along, & Who’s capable of thinking independently ( ? ) 
i really most genuinely believe that many of The Things that we are ‘Told’ it True by Authoritative Sources is So Amazingly Wrong, That is has to be some kind of crazy Sieve to Separate The Damp Masses into Manageable Categories by something like a Global Illuminatii that treats most of The World like A Neglected Farm of Chattel to be Slaughtered for The Consumption of Future Generations. 
- - -
It should be noted that this : Illuminatii — Is The ‘True’ Global Secret Society that Really is Completely Secret. There are many Faux-Illuminatii's that are merely Boy’s-Clubs or Nepotistic Fraternities of Inbred Classmates; But there ‘Must be’ A Real Illuminatii that was Established long, long ago & has remained isolated, Establishing a Technological & Social Base that is Centuries ahead of what The Damp Masses believe is Possible. 
- - - 
New Drugs / i suppose that most lay people believe that The Large Pharmaceutical Companies somehow ‘create’ or ‘invent’ new drugs; But actually— They extract them from plants & directed brain tissues or wherever, then tediously inject them into countless small animals to see how their affected ! / If they’re wondering if a new chemical or compound will cure some disease; Then they induce The Disease in countless small animals & inject or feed Their found substance to them & see if it cures them. The Whole process takes many years & thousands or millions of small animals to work through. It is The very embodiment of trial & error. It is completely crazy. 
- - -
Engineers make things by tinkering around with whatever was left to them by The previous generation of tinkerers. They may occasionally use some simple arithmetic or algebra to help with electronic circuitry; but will build scale models of buildings & bridges to see if they’ll really hold together when you pile some bricks on them. 
Occasionally; Engineers ( which includes Chemical Engineers & Material Sciences Engineering ) will discover some new principle or effect from their mixing things together, which may result in a new super-conductor or memory circuit, which Scientists contributed nothing to, but will take credit for knowing it all along, & glibly create formulas which they insist are proof of The Manifest Discovery, while fudging this ‘Proof’ as more empirical evidence comes from The Engineer’s laboratories. 
- - -
Much of Science is Very Politicized; We often hear stories about our enemies ( USSR, Cuba or The Nazis ) that have Dictated to their Scientists what is True, & What they must adhere to, to Remain Funded or even Alive. 
Of Course; This sort of thing Doesn’t happen ‘Here’, But— It does. The ReCategorization of Planets, Global Meteorology, What Studies are Permissible by Universities or Federally Funded Research Facilities, All While Billions are Squandered on District Pork Projects & Absurd Studies whose Rationalization makes children burst out laughing; Are Examples of our Government’s Strangle-hold on The Throats of Epistemology. 
- - -
Dark Matter and Dark Energy / These two things are entirely make-believe, yet have somehow become completely embodied into modern ’Scientific’ thinking, while many quixotic phenomena, with hundreds of years of case-files to support their claims are carelessly dismissed as hooey. 
- - -
Entanglement is completely Bogus. Firstly No one is able to explain what this even means, or how particles become entangled, or assuming that this process may occur naturally; then in stars or wherever, every particle in The universe must now be entangled with every other particle in The universe. It is also ludicrous to suppose that you could isolate any pair of entangled particles & measure their properties.
- - -
Bell’s InEquality is supposed to somehow prove ‘Spooky Action at a Distance’— But i have never been able to confirm, through extensive research !, whether this is a real experiment or merely a thought experiment. & even if it is a real experiment, The results are purely statistical & must be ‘interpreted’ to yield some kind of conclusion.
- - -
Most any Scientific Article that completely neglects to reveal how The experiment is performed or how critical elements of The experiment is performed; But instead simply tells you what The ‘Results’ are, & what The reader is now expected to believe. 
- - -
Any Experiment that uses light, or specific properties of The photons of light, that in The experiment, pass through glass, lenses or reflect off of mirrors, because The photon that entered The glass, lens or mirror is Not The same photon that come out of it. The Way Mirrors & Lenses work is truly amazing & surrealistic ! 

- - - 
Inflation after The Big Bang
Generically; Anything that 'Physicists or Scientists' just makeup out of whole cloth to apply a patch to one of their theories that is contradicted by empirical evidence. 
- - -
The Orthodoxies Position that Fringe Investigations shouldn’t be -Allowed- to Continue until The Defenders & Supporters of these Topics can Fully Explain what their underlying causality is, or how they may work. This is The Very Anti-Thesis of how Science should work. 
- - -
Irrational Numbers / All numbers, Whole or Fractional, must necessarily exist as a Unique Position on The Number Line. Irrational Numbers, By Definition, Do Not Have a Unique & Fixed Position. 
- - -
The Idea of ‘At Infinity’ / Theres is No such a thing as ‘At Infinity’. / Parallel Lines for example to Not Meet At Infinity. An Irrational Number does Not have a fixed position At Infinity. 
- - -
The ‘Proof’ for The Irrationality of The Square Root of 2, Only works for that Value ( 2 ) & Not ( obviously ) for All Square Roots. 
- - -
There’s No Such a Thing as ‘Paradoxes’. Paradoxes, If anything, are proof that ‘Logical Thinking’ is Bunk. All Paradoxes may be ‘Resolved’ by simply allowing for The Obvious Idea that many Statements & Sentences, Although they may seem ‘Sensible’ or ‘Well Structured’; Are Not. They are simply Non-Sensical. They are simply Gibberish. 
- - -
Many Mathematicians, Physicists & Scientists ( seem to ) believe that Anything ‘Proved’ or Even Demonstrated, with Mathematics, Must Necessarily have a Correspondence with Reality. 
Mathematics are Digital, Quantified Artificial Increments that Correspond to Marks on Paper; While Reality is a Seamless Continuum of Analog Machinery, Whose Parts Recede into an Invisible Pit of Mysterious Blackness. 
- - -
Quantum Anything. This is most egregious when Deepak Chopra uses The Word ‘Quantum’ to mean just about anything, but When Physicists & Scientists Misunderstand The Really Fundamental ideas of Quantum Mechanics, it’s just unbearable. 
The Essence of Quantum Mechanics is merely that Reality is Not made up of Tiny Grains of Sand, But is a Continuum of Fuzzy Blobs, whose Delimiters, even for The Smallest Niblets, may well extend to fill The Entire Universe, Which of course Suggests that something very hinky is at The Bottom of The Kitchen Floor, With Nothing more, beneath that. 
One Obvious Point, That seems to be very true; Is that The ‘Fields’ That Extend from Every Fawking Atom, Stretch Out to The Limits of The Universe. This sounds completely Ludicrous, That The Magnets on your Refrigerator, Although Measurably are Effective only for an inch or Two, Are actually reaching out & Pulling Solar Flares Away from The Sun. i’m Not sure that i’d be willing to pile that into evidence for a Transcendental Reality, But it’s certainly very CounterIntuitive & Requires some serious Tangental Thinking. 
i also think that much of These Dark Matter & Dark Energy ( Enigmas ) ‘Problems’ would just ‘Go Away’ if Physicists would consider how Magnetic Fields from Stars are Effecting One-Another. Everyone is certainly willing to believe that Gravity is Effecting The Shapes of Galaxies, & Magnetic Fields are much, much stronger, Yet their Influence in Galactic Formation is Completely Discounted. ( ? ) 
- - -
Epiphenomenalism is A Very Clever Argument that There is this thing called; Consciousness, But since it is produced entirely by The Brain— It is somekind of weird Residue of The Brain’s Activities. Since the Brain Creates Consciousness; Consciousness contributes nothing to it’s own Experience ! Consciousness can’t control or Direct The Robot that is Creating it. Consciousness does nothing. It is An Observer trapped in A Robot that creates all of it’s own Thoughts ! 
When The Brain generates The Thought; ‘I Think, therefore I am.’ or Consider’s any idea that includes The Attributes of it’s own Consciousness; Which it can Not in any way have access to ( ! ) It must therefore be referencing another ‘faux-consciousness’ that it is somehow aware of ! 
This is obviously very Counter-Intuitive & Repugnant to any Reflections upon one’s own Sentience; Thus ‘Proving’ that this line of reasoning ( Epiphenomenalism ) must be wrong in someway. But how ? 
In any analysis; How can The Thing ( Whatever that may be ) that Creates our thoughts that we become ‘Aware’ of, Feed that Awareness back into The Thing that Creates those thoughts ( ? ) To suggest that it’s Recursive or Circular, merely begs for another tier of The Same Inquiry. 
The Only Real Solution is to Assume that Reality & How our Brains &/or Minds allow us to think about it, Is entirely Fallacious. We are living in a Transcendental Reality of which we are unable to ever truly examine or accurately think about. 
- - -
Anything that Astronomers claim. / The Evidence for ‘New Planets’ in other Solar Systems is Very, Very Tenuous— to be so Polite that my toenails ache when i give them that tiny smidgen of credibility. 
- - -
That NASA has been so disingenuous with their search for life of Mars. / How difficult would it be to put a dang microscope onto some of these probes, which would allow ground observers to direct The Robot on Mars to pick up a scoop of Martian soil & prepare a slide so that we can see if anything’s wiggling around. ( ? )
- - -
That ’Science Books’ are so very disingenuous with ‘Interesting’ or ‘Curious’ things on Mars or other Astronomical Discoveries.
The most genuinely interesting or curious things are invariably left out of them.
- - -
E=MC Squared : Doesn’t mean anything. It’s a catch phrase coined by A. Einstein to Popularize his general theories.
- - -
Many of The Constants used in The Standard Theory, that is supposed to Explain all of Physics, Are Completely Made Up, to Fill in Gaps, to Link Disparaging Equations together. 
- - -
Large, Heavy Objects fall faster than smaller, Light Objects. / The Heavy ( more massive objects ) are pulling ever so slightly up on The Earth as The Earth is Overwhelmingly pulling down on them. 
- - -
Logic is Bunk. / Propositional Logic is completely useless. 
People are about as Smart as Fish. 
At any given point in history, Scientists have always felt that ’They’ now have a thorough understanding of Reality, & quietly dismiss all of The Crazy Ideas that their fore-fathers had as home-spun folklore. 
- - -
There is something obviously wrong with The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. If everything is supposed to be becoming less orderly; Then The Universe was much more orderly however many billions of years ago. What is this supposed to mean ? 
- - -
The Matter of The Universe may be disappearing into Black-Holes or White Dwarfs, But when these object come together & Tear each other apart while tightly orbiting one another, they refill The Steady State Universe with Hydrogen & other Elements. 
Even if Red-Shifts demonstrated that The Galaxies are ‘Currently’ moving away from each other, it’s Not necessarily The case that they Started out as a Singularity. They might have ‘Recently’ come out from a Daisy-Wheel Spiral, Such as A Flock of Birds that Compact, Then Disperse. 
- - -
The Applications for when ‘Infinity’ may be applied to things, needs to be severely ‘Revisited’.
It is often suggested that any given ‘Line’ has an infinite number of ‘Points’ in it. i would like to amend this by encouraging a new school of thought; That this idea of Infinitely Tiny Dots is Disingenuous & Misleading. i would like to replace these ‘Points’ with ‘Nodes’. A Node is a Well Defined ( Geometrically Defined ) Locus on a Number-Line that Indicates a Finite Value; Such as ‘2’ or ‘.5’. π is also a Specific Node, but Not an Irrational One. 
When one considers The ‘Volume’ of ‘Points’ in A Pair of Lines; The Key to comparing them is Correspondence. Any given ‘Point’ ( Node or Region ) may be Linked to An Equal Point, Node or Region in The Second Line. Obviously if A One Inch Line is compared to A Two Inch Line, The One Inch Line Corresponds Equally to The First Inch of The Two Inch Line, Leaving nothing for The Second Inch. The Two Inch Line is Longer, Thus it has A Greater Quantity of Infinite Points. But they tell us that this is Wrong. All Infinities are Equal. But Cantor said that that’s Not Correct Either. 
Clearly; The Whole idea of Infinities needs to be Reconsidered with something that i would like to call ‘Mathematical Common Sense’. 
- - -
Much of Science is Severely Muddled with Foundational Ideas which were Wrong from their Inception, Then Incorporated into The Hierarchy of Well Accepted Truths; & are now stuck there. Many of The Core Axioms need to be reconsidered & Discarded. 
- - - 
2 x 2 should Not be Commutative. 
2 x 2 = 4
2 x -2 = -4
-2 x 2 is nonsensical.
-2 x -2 is nonsensical. 
2 is a quantitive value or a Factor 
-2 is a missing quantitive value, but Not a Factor. 
- - -
Although we were taught in school that any base number system must contain a zero to be meaningful, this is Not true.
The simplest example is to consider is a base 26, made up of The Entire Alphabet. Although this base allows for a Zero before The Value ‘A’, it does Not use a Zero as a placeholder, or for any other application. 
A = decimal 1
B = decimal 2
Z = decimal 26 
AA = decimal 27 ( 1 unit of 26 + one unit of 1 ) 
AB = decimal 28 ( 1 unit of 26 + two units of 1 ) 
From this; A perfectly agreeable Multiplication & Addition Table(s are producible, which all school-children are required to memorize. 
- - -
i have also hypothesized that there may be An Alien Race on another Planet somewheres that doesn’t consider The Use of Whole Numbers. It allows for a Number Line Value of 1 & 2, but doesn’t consider them as anything special. 
When considering a Basket of Apples for example; A Human would say that one Basket contains 2 Apples & another Basket contains 6 Apples.  But The Alien would counter with The Observation that all The Apples are of Different Sizes & Obviously consist of Differing Quantities of Appleness. Which they apply to all ‘Tangible’ Quantities, Even when two Separate things seem by all measurable means; Equivalent— In The same way that we might allow that any given drawn circle may seem perfectly round, but really isn’t. 
This then opens The Door for Many other ways to construct a consistent & fully functional mathematical realm. 
Our idea of Mathematical Universality is just mistaken. 
- - -
The Current Theory for how Snowflakes form, is very wrong. The Key to understanding Snowflakes is how they generate ‘Tones’ which Ring like a bell & Create WaveForms throughout The Growing Snowflake as each new water-molecule slams into it. 
- - -
Gravity & Magnetism are completely & utterly Unexplained, But Physicists & Scientists have The Audacity to believe that they Understand Reality Nearly Completely. 
- - -
Scientists very often believe that merely ‘Labeling’ things is The same as Explaining them. 
- - -
Darwinian Evolution does Not Allow for any Alternative Theories to Question its many problems. Anyone that attempts to point out some obvious & severe problem with Darwinian Evolution is immediately Branded a Christian Creationist Extremist, Intelligent Designer or Merely a Lunk-head. 
- - -
The Radiation from Cell-Phones is obviously very detrimental to our health, & in a very few years, Doctors will be involved in a massive conspiratorial Coverup that most people are dying inexplicably of Brain Tumors, While The Scientific Community tells them that The Solution is Right Around The Corner. All Autopsies after 2040 will only be conducted by Government Doctors. Extreme Penalties will be imposed on anyone that questions their reports.
- - -
There are many very odd things that surround The Alleged Moon Landings in The 1960’s & 70’s.
There were many very odd things that happened on September 11th 2001.
- - -
The Smartest People have an IQ of about 130 to 140. People that are ‘Smarter’ than that suffer from many Delusional Ideas, such as; Anything that They Think Up, Must be True. There just aren’t enough people in their peer groups to constrain their crazy thinking. 
The Smartest ( Straight A ) Students, are The ones that have learned to Con The System. The Brightest ones are The B- or D+ Students. 
- - -
Although Our Entire Judicial Network may Not be considered ‘Scientific’; It is a Predominant Structural Component of Western Civilization that Considers its Foundational Justification as ’Scientific’— Is pure bunk. / i find it fascinating that there are still judges that are bickering daily over elemental moral & ethical issues that should have been decided 25,000 years ago.
- - -
Although Not ’Scientific’; i find it fascinating that Nearly Everyone can’t ( or won’t ) ‘Like’ something until it’s been ‘Validated’ by an Authoritative Source.
- - -
Taboos. / They are crazy. 
- - -
While ( All ) of The Arguments that attempt to Prove the Existence of Gawd are always flawed in some simple way; There are many very Strong Arguments for A Transcendental Reality. This merely means that there are Things in our Reality that Defy any ability that we have to ‘Explain’ them. These are Not simply ‘Hard’ Problems that we will ‘Eventually’ Explain; But things that defy our Current Fundamental Understanding of ‘How to Think’. We will have to Transcend Humanism & our current understanding of what ‘Consciousness’ is. 
- - -
The Flying Saucer Phenomena clearly exists. What this Phenomena is, is very mysterious.
Likewise; With nearly all other Quixotic Phenomena.
- - -
There are Variety of Things that ‘Prove’ we are living in a Screen Saver Reality. / This means that our Reality is essentially something like a computer program; Such that many of The Things that we ‘Know’ are Irrevocably True, are Not True, & Have No Underlying Causality. They are just lines of code that say something like; If (x then (y. / Consequently; All of Science is Pointless. We can never ‘examine’ this reality, because we are confined by The Fallacious Reality itself. 
The Best we can do is Aquire a Listing of all of these Rules, But since there’s no underlying causality or Relationship to All of These ‘Attributes’, They are by Definition; Senseless. 
Even if we could trust our Ability to ‘Think-Reliably’, Creating such a List of ‘Physical Facts’ is entirely pointless.
If this Interpretation is Accurate ( ! ) It may well be Entirely Possible to Build A Time Machine that our ‘Reality Generator’ will ‘Allow’ to Work; If ‘We Believe’ that it Can !!! ( ? ) 
That kind of Thinking may account for a lot of What we pass off as ‘Possible’ or ‘The Way Things Are’ ( ? ) 
- - -
i should think that most people put Scientists & Doctors in The Same Potato-Peeling Factory; & now we’ve recently been told that The 3rd Leading Cause of Deaths in The US of The A’s is Physician Error ( Which may include Nursing Errors as well. ) 
And i have met many people that Believe Anything, ( literally ) Anything; That Doctors & Scientists say as UnQuestionably ( Literally; Un-Questionably ) as True. 
Which is very annoying.
- - -
Something that Crops up from time to time; Is A News Story that Scientists ‘Release’ making some Absurdist ( on The First Tier Face of Hearing It ) Claim about Whatever, & What is very Annoying is that The Liaison Media Personality ( News-Something ) will Completely Accept it, without ( Apparently ) having The Slightest ‘Science-Background-Education’ to know that whatever they just said was ‘Very-Wrong’, Or— At The Very Least; Highly Dubious, Which Certainly, In either Case; Warranted some Follow-up Questions, which were Not forthcoming. 
Sometimes this ’News-Releases’ are Soooo Very, Very Quirky & Bizarre, that — i have to wonder; What is The Real Purpose of this ? 
In one Case; Circa something like year 2000, There was a New-Report from ‘Astronomers’ that a Very Odd Star was recently Discovered, But they didn’t say what was Strange about it, or where it was ( location in The Sky ) or Who made these Observations. And — Although i heard this Report several times on The Radio &/or TV, i could find any Additional information about it, ( Although i did find The Original very Vague Report ) on The Internet.
i was thinking; Maybe they’re trying to ‘Bait’ The Fringe ( Art Bell Crowd ) into making a big Hoop-de-Do about this ‘Weird Star’, But as The Days went by, The Story entirely disappeared. 
Do ‘Scientists’ or The News Media Do That ! ? 
Do they Occasionally just ‘Make Stuff Up’ & Present it to The Damp Masses as Entirely Authentic New Reporting, just to see how ‘We’ll’ React to it ??? 
i think so.
Very Often.
Another Case in where The Local News will Report a Crime of Somekind, like a Bank-Robbery, & show a very tiny, very fuzzy picture of The ‘Alleged’ Criminal, & Ask The Viewing Audience to Phone in Tips of who they think this photo is of. ( ? ) i think that The News Media or Police do this to simply ‘Glean’ a New Repository of ‘Potential Ne’er-do-well’s’ that they then pick from a hat at some future time when they need a sad-sack to take The fall for some unsolved crime.

Believing UnBelievable Things

Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 8:36:56 PM
Believing UnBelievable Things

i often consider that i have some missing molecules in my brain that allows me to freely believe unbelievable things.
Such as :
      That 911 had absolutely nothing to do with Islamic Terrorists.
      That The Apollo Moon Landings were hoaxed
      That OJ Simpson did Not Murder Ron Goldman & Nicole B. Simpson

But there are other things that may be commonly believed that i don’t believe in.
Such as :
      The Big Bang
      Darwinian Evolution
      Time Travel
      Gravity Waves
     
i also believe in Faeries, Ghosts & Something very much like Angels ( The Ξ.6 Controllers )

But what struck me this evening was that While many people ‘believe’ in Time Travel; i admit that there is some interesting evidence that supports it, but a universe that allows all instances of time to somehow simultaneously exist, even if we freely allow for an infinite universe ( in all particulars ), There remains something deeply annoying about it.

So.

It may be that Time Travel is permissible, but Not in a way that we commonly think that it should.

But aside from that; i was thinking, that maybe this ‘believing’ stuff doesn’t have anything to do with how reasonable or unreasonable or believable or unbelievable something is.
Maybe it has to do how ‘pleasing’ The idea is to your personal sensibilities.
Which fits right in with my ‘Thinking is Bunk’ Synopsis.
Which is very similar to my ‘Logic is Bunk’ & People are about as Smart as Fish Philosophies.

i like to think ( believe ) that i ‘believe’ things that have been constructed from elemental principles, but maybe i don’t.
Maybe i’m the same as everyone else.
After all : All Reasoning is Jiggery Pokery. There is No ‘Good or Sound Thinking’.

Maybe Time Travel is one of those ‘things’ that must necessarily exist, but can’t : Thereby -Proving- That Reality is Wrong.
Or : Our Perceptions of what is real is entirely fallacious.
We are living in a screen-saver reality that does Not allow us to examine ( in any way at all ) The True Reality, So that everything we think we Must Necessarily Know About Reality is Wrong.

We are living in an Artificial Reality where impossible things can freely happen without any concerns for an underlying causality.

i believe that there is plenty of evidence for this;
But if this is true; Then my reasoning is necessarily suspect.

This seems to be approaching somekind of Catch-22 Principle.


Needs refining.

Chemistry Grrrl

A Rather Odd thing happened to me a few days ago.
i was on The Bus & i was trying to talk with A Very Pretty, Very Friendly Grrrl that was something like 19-22 years old.
- - 
It should be noted that before i begin; 
i have a personality disorder that may be Schizoid Personality or Asperger’s. Both are Symptomatically Equivalent; But it’s thought ( ? ) that one is caused by Autism ( one end of The Autism Spectrum Disorder(s, While The Other ( Schizoid P ) is thought to be related to Schizophrenia. 
i was diagnosed ( twice ) with SP, but both times, it was quite a few years before Asperger’s was even a Named Syndrome. ( ? ) 
The Difference that i ( from my own reading on these two classifications ) quantify them with is that while both The Aspergerian ( Aspie ) & Schizoid P generally shun other people, The Aspie wants to be around other people, but finds it very awkward for both parties, & The Schizoid P simply hates other people. When guests come over to visit, both The A & SP run down The Basement & hide under The Stairs, but for different reasons.
My own attempts to decide which one i really am is confusing & ambiguous. i seem to have significant traits for both. 
- - 
So Anyways.
i’m sitting there on The Bus & it’s marginally crowded; & i noticed that This Very Pretty Grrrl that is sitting right beside me ( by The Window ) is flipping through a deck of Flash Cards for Chemical Diagrams  
So i says; ‘Oh; you’re a chemistry person?’ & she says yes! 
- - -
The reason that i was so interested in talking to her, was because i wanted to discuss this ‘idea’ that i’ve had for sometime now regarding The Cable TV Series ‘Breaking Bad’. i’ve had this idea for awhile that it might have been much easier for Mr. White & Jessie to build a ‘Robot’ or Manufacturing Assemblage Machine to make The Meth for them. Of Course; it would be VERY Complicated; But The Advantages would be that once it got going, it would operate 24-7 & you wouldn’t need The Complicated Base Chemical that they were constantly scheming to get their hands on. The ‘Robot’ would be able to Synthesis Meth from ‘Base’ Chemicals, like Raw Hydrogen, Oxygen & so on. This would of course take much longer & require many more steps, but since The Robot’s doing all of The Work, Who cares ! 
So i’ve been wanting to discuss this with a Chemistry Person for quite awhile & here i had The Opportunity. ! 
- - 
First Odd Thing; i couldn’t remember The Name of The Show ! Bad something, having to do with The Meth & ??? & Finally i remembered ‘Breaking Bad’ & it seems like she is only vaguely aware of what i’m talking about, as if she’d never watched The show ( ? ) ??? !
Second More Troubling Odd Thing: The Moment that i ‘Broke The Ice’ with this Grrrl, all The other Guys on The Bus wanted to talk to her !!! There was this really big fat retarded kid ( early 20s ) sitting in front, that had a pronounced speech impediment that was chiming in with ridiculous comments & another guy behind us that immediately introduced himself to The Grrrl & Starting Chit-Chatting with her !!!
This Grrrl for her 2 Cents worth, was being very polite to me & seemingly wanted to stay on The Topic of Chemistry, but it was impossible, & then my stop came up.
- - -

Ugh. It was so very frustrating !!!

An Epiphany of Sorts ( An Awakening ! )

i have for a long time, had this idea that 'Logic was Bunk' and That Humanimals aren't really capable of True Thinking; But i've also held on to this other idea that it might, or would be possible to convince A Reasonably Smart person that something that they believed was True or False; 
To be False or True— 

Using a Method of Rhetorical Banter called :
The Heretic and The Expert.
The Heretic would offer No Facts, merely ask Questions, and the Expert would provide all the Facts and Structures for An Argument, so that at the End; The Expert would be faced with an Irrefutable Argument which contradicted their own Assumptions.

Well.
i've been awoken.

Yesterday; Wednesday; i got a call from M. Gilbert about an SSI Overpayment.
She was supposed to be an impartial arbitrator assigned by SSI to resolve a dispute that i was having concerning an Overpayment that SSI had allegedly sent to me. My position was that it was not an Overpayment, or more precisely; SSI was confused ( ? ) ! pertaining to how many months of Overpayment that they'd sent me. ( i thought 1, they thought 2 ) 

Anyways; That's all very confusing and difficult to explain,
But it was very clear that M. Gilbert was not a Neutral, unbiased arbitrator. 

Prior to this Kerfuffle; i had naively thought that if you can present a given argument or position to someone in The form of The Heretic vs The Expert; The Heretic can get The Expert to agree to some position that The Expert previously believed was entirely Wrong. 
That is; Change their mind with an irrefutable argument that they themselves ( The Expert ) had created, with The Heretic’s guidance. 

But now— i believe that this is pure nonsense; 
Because it tacitly requires The Expert to want to find The Truth, & to Cooperate with The Heretic; which in reality; They will Not do. 

The Trick that M. Gilbert most favored in employing against my position was techno-babble concerning how ’The Computers’ processed The Information, or creating this very incomprehensible dichotomy of The Machines vs The Institution. 

That is; Every Position or bit of knowledge that i attributed to The Institution ( SSI knew (x ), 
She would counter with The assertion that that knowledge (x was only known by The Computers that were processing it. The Institution didn’t know or act on any of this information. The Clerks at SSI didn’t or couldn’t process The information, it was all reserved knowledge that only The computers were privy to. ( ? ) 

What was most clear though; Was that she was never going to concede to any premise or truth that she had actually already admitted to, if it began to look as if it was going towards some position that was astray from her objective of denying my assertion that SSI was being very unfair to me.


Is there any real defense against Stonewalling and Obfuscation ?
