The fish and rod budget

Kwasi Kwarteng has announced a new economic plan for the UK. Those on the right rejoice in the first 'Conservative' budget for a decade and more; the left insist that its handouts for the rich at the expense of the poorest in society.

It seems to me that this is nothing more than the old fish and rod debate. The Labour and Lib Dem policy is to give the needy a fish so that they eat today. This can be construed as a handout without onward investment. This money will be effectively lost. The Tories give the needy a rod each so that they can feed their families  everyday. The rod represents the investment that the wealthy and commercial make to ensure that everyone eats tomorrow.

Life itself

 Life can be summarised as a sequence of events; we are born, we live and then we die. In order, this is about the past, present and future which is as much as Heideggar stated when he suggested that all aspects of life depended on these three phases. It can also be described by the Davies Hypothesis which states that: the universe, its creation and evolution is ordered in the way it is because nature has to take into account all four of the fourth roots of one. Let me explain.

The Hypothesis leads us to imagine that where we normally see life in three dimensions, each of them has another two besides. for example if we see a piece of string we can think of it as a single dimension of perceived length, K , where K = k, the measured length. Note that the measured 'k' is assumed to be positive ('+k'). However according to the hypothesis, the piece of string also has dimensions of '-k' and 'ik' such that K = ±√[(+k)² + (-k)² + (ik)²]

where '+k' is the real length, '-k' is the unreal length and 'ik' is the imaginary length. 'i' is the square root of minus one.

Solving we have perceived length, K = ± k

In other words and ignoring the negative value,  although we have introduced two extra dimensions, we still only perceive the piece of string as it is. This, i suggest, is a fundamental fact of nature and applies universally including the ineffable traits and even life itself.

If we assume in the trinitarian equation above that capital 'K' represents perceived life, then '+k' is the present, '-k' represents the past and '+ik' the future, then by solving, perceived life is '± k'. Ignoring the negative term for a moment we can see that our perceived life is all about the present, the here and now. exactly as it should be. The complex term, 'ik', the future, doesn't feature but is nonetheless essential for without a future there can be no today. 

When one dies, there is no more today and the trinitarian equation reduces to: K = ±√[(-k)² + (ik)²] = 0

The same applies to ante natal consideration. At the moment of birth there is no past and 

K = ±√[(+k)² + (ik)²] = 0. In this instance, one Planck unit of time after birth life has a history, the full trinitarian equation applies and perceived life begins.

But what is this mystical quantity 'ik' that seems to be essential but cannot be seen or otherwise perceived? The religious will point to their Gods but I suggest that it refers to all life, not just humans. No, it is a miracle of nature that exists fundamentally because there are two values of the square root of one, one positive and the other negative. By this strange but necessary fact all the complexity and diversity we see in the universe is possible including life itself.

(Negative values of  'k' given as solutions to the trinitarian equation refer to those of our dual universe. Please refer to my book for full explanation.)

Tory Leadership 2022

 Amongst the front runners for the leadership of the Tory Party and therefore the Prime Ministership are several I suggest shouldn't qualify.

Firstly, Tom Tugendhat, simply because the British prime Minister shouldn't also hold French citizenship.

Secondly, this blog has always maintained that applicants must be at least third generation immigrants. see:

This would disqualify Nadhim Zahawi who is a direct immigrant from Kurdish Iraq, Sajid Javid and Rishi Sunak who are first generation immigrants.

Who are these people who have only been in the Country for a short time want to lord it over a peoples who have been living in these islands for Millenia? No one is suggesting for a moment that these folk are not competent but as a principle their families should have been resident in the UK for a meaningful time.

The shame of the Russian Orthodox Church

Readers of this blog will know that we have no sympathy for organised religion. Now, the people can, of course, believe what they like but we hold that the priestly classes have throughout recorded history incited their acolytes to do dastardly deeds. Today, the Patriarch, Kirill, of the Russian Orthodox Church has asserted that the slaughter of the innocents, women, children, civilians constitutes a JUST war to recover the independent state of Ukraine for Putin's Russia. Is he mad? Has the man no shame? How can the mindless murder of people in Mariupal and other cities constitute a loving, caring will of God? How? 

We hear today that a coincidence of the Islamic culture of Ramadan and the Jewish festval of Passover has promoted widespread discord in Jerusalem with hundreds injured. 

When will this nonsense stop? It is a problem with the human condition that many believe what the priestly classes tell them about unproven, mystical and mythological figures. They do so to appease a natural fear of death and the aftermath relying on the fact that they cannot be denied by logical or scientific argument. But then they cannot prove the existence of deities by scripture and hearsay alone. Surely it is better that they suspend their rhetoric until they have undeniable proof in order to preserve life and stability in a dangerous world.

The DUMA. Collective name of cowards.

 Is the 'Duma' the collective name of a bunch of cowards?

It is clear that an end to the conflict in Ukraine will come from the death of Vladimir Putin, a paranoid psychopath who has Tsarist ambitions to restore the old Soviet Union. As more Russian women lose their sons and husbands on foreign soil the anger will rise, not only around the world, but also in Russia. But will their voices be heard in the toothless Russian Parliament, the collection of two hundred or so parliamentarians who nodded through Putin's plans, unchallenged. Who amongst them has the courage to speak out against this absurd military adventure? It will be dangerous; failure will result in certain death but someone has to stop this nonsense.

Putin's paranoia was there for all to see when he met his senior generals at either ends of a forty foot table. They said he was afraid of covid but more likely he was afraid of being apprehended at close quarters. I wouldn't be surprised if Putin's food is tested for poisons before he eats.

His threat of a nuclear option is the mark of a madman being forced into a corner. The Duma is being increasingly complicit in a nightmare they can and must challenge.

Russia's shame

 On the pretext of a non-existant threat, Vlad the Impaler II has launched an invasion of the Ukraine. In his determination to restore the Russian Empire he has put in jeopardy the security of all of Europe whatever the cost to the continent including the Russian people.

The man is clearly mad, probably a psychopath and likely to bring shame on the people of Russia. They will be isolated in the world, unable to trade with all except with China and North Korea, unable to compete in international sports, ignored on the world political stage.

I don't believe that the Russian people want this. I think they can see beyond the madness of their President. Only they and sane Generals can stop this and restore the honour of their Country. They know what they have to do.

Post mortem brain activity

 A report in sky news,

reports that scientists have recorded brain activity in a man who had died from a heart attack. They suggest that the brain is showing a review of his life as it flashes before him. They had registered what are known as 'gamma' waves normally associated with dreaming. Could this be evidence of the proof of my hypothesis concerning the multi-dimensional nature of time?

In my you tube talk, part of a series explaining the DAVIES HYPOTHESIS:

I suggest that the brain functions after clinical death as the 'imaginary' time function continues, via dreams, to prepare the body for full and complete death. It fills the mind with images, typically of tunnels of white light, gardens, Jesus etc as told by those who have undergone a 'near-death experience'. 

The 'imaginary' time function is one of the three dimensions of time that give rise to consciousness in brains. for details please go to the video above or my inexpensive booklet: 'SPIRITUAL MAN: AN INTRODUCTION TO NEGATIVE DIMENSIONS

Ukranian neutrality

 The West insist that the Ukraine, as a sovereign nation, should be able to decide whether or not to turn to the west and NATO or to the east and Russia. This impasse has led to Putin's Russia massing troops on the Ukranian border and threatening war.

But has anyone thought that maybe there is a solution if the Ukraine declares itself, Switzerland like, as a neutral Nation?

There will be conditions but they carry the benefits of having reduced military costs, useful in a country with an emerging economy. 

Just a thought.
