A referendum on the reintroduction of the death penalty, anyone.

The UK's dilemma over the implementation of the referendum result, to leave the EU, raises questions about the relevance of so called 'people's votes', especially when the Country is divided equally.
We might get an idea from the reluctance of every government since the mid twentieth century to hold a referendum on the re-establishment of the death penalty for certain crimes. All polls suggest that the reintroduction of the death penalty for some crimes such as the murder of policemen and women in the course of their duty would be popular in the Country and for this reason, parliamentarians are unlikely to vote on a referendum. But why?
Are politicians more enlightened than the plebs they represent? Have they a different sense of justice to the ordinary man and woman in the street? Or could it be that Parliament is full of legal officers that don't wish to burden their fellow judges with life or death decisions? Surely it can't be due to lack of executioners!
Failure to hold such a referendum is due to the cowardice of Parliament, afraid they couldn't, in conscience, uphold the will of the people. So much for democracy, a notion at risk as we witness various self interests contort the realities of Brexit.

Near Death Experience

The Daily Mail has published an article on Near Death Experience based on wok done at Manchester Metropolitan University.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6468401/Are-near-death-experiences-hallucinations-science-puzzling-phenomenon.html

Although they document some accounts they don't know what causes them. This blog has previously provided an answer. see: here, and here

Essentially what we are saying is that of the three dimensions of time that define consciousness, one only survives clinical death, namely 'imaginary' time, that responsible for dreaming, the ineffable traits, appreciation of the arts and discernment of the abstract. The survival of this part of consciousness allows the brain to continue to prepare the person for what comes next, final death. It is no more than what the brain does throughout life by means of dreams; prepare the person for what comes next on the journey of life.

Oxford cosmologists and dark matter

Sky news reports: A team of scientists at the University of Oxford may have solved one of the biggest mysteries in modern physics - the issue of dark matter and dark energy in the universe.

https://news.sky.com/story/mystery-of-dark-matter-may-have-been-solved-by-oxford-scientists-11572089

Might I respectfully suggest that the scientists in Oxford look at my work first published in 2013: Spiritual Man: An Introduction to Negative Dimensions which demonstrates the existence of negative mass and the part it plays in the cosmos.

Eligibility to stand for public office-update

The MP for Edmonton, Kate Osamor, has stepped down from her post as shadow overseas development officer following the conviction of her son, also employed in the public sector, for drug offences.
This blog has been calling for a change in the eligibility for public office rules, stopping recently arrived families from influencing lives of well established citizens of the UK. The MP is the daughter of immigrants from Nigeria, one of whom, Martha Osamor, has been made a Baroness having been nominated by Jeremy Corbyn to sit in the House of Lords. According to my eligibility tests neither of these people would qualify for their positions, having not been continuously resident in the UK for three generations. It cannot be right that these folk can make representations in positions of power that effect people, some of whom have populated these islands for two thousand years or more; whose families have shaped the culture and tradition of the 'sceptred' isles.

Blair's solution

On ITV this morning, ex PM, Tony Blair suggested that a second referendum would be one solution to the problem facing Mrs May's Brexit deal. He admitted that the people did know what they were voting for at the referendum but that it was the politicians in Parliament who had failed to reach a consensus on the means of leaving. Blair's solution is to refer the problem back to the people who already know where they are going; forward, rather than those politicians with their backs to the sun content to stare at their shadows in the past.
Surely it is incumbent on the politicians to fulfill the clearly expressed wishes of the people. They should get on with it; its been long enough.

The afterlife

To anyone living, the afterlife is something that happens in the future. But what if there is no future?
This is the scenario according to the Davies Hypothesis https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpThiz2UeBeEI9MwGjChZ04j8XulU78uZ
By adopting the idea that time is three-dimensional, the hypothesis shows that although essential for there being a present, the future, in reality, never exists. It never has and never will. Nor is it possible to cross dimensions and travel to the future. How, therefore, can we be so sure that there is an afterlife? We can't; it's as simple as that.
This is of fundamental importance to those who are relying on the existence of an afterlife; those like the suicide bombers who kill and maim innocent people under the impression that as martyrs they will go to a heaven populated with a harem and all the good things of life. It is surely time to disabuse these people of this notion and tell them that there is no afterlife and that they are murderers and should be posthumously treated as such.
Sadly, this reality also crosses the hopes and wishes of those looking forward to a post-mortem, eternal 'life' of ease after a life time of drudge; reuniting with lost and much loved spouses etc. The message, therefore, is to make the most of participating in the most astonishing miracle of nature; to be alive, against all the odds. You are a long time not existing. It has never been satisfactorily explained to me why when a person dies in the expectation of reuniting with the late spouse in heaven, it doesn't immediately become hell when the recently deceased finds him or her in the arms of another lover or mistress.
There is a case to be made for a short period, post mortem, when the brain can prepare the body for ultimate death  including visions that may give comfort. see: here

The caravan and the rule of ten

Donald Trump's contribution to the recent mid-term elections has highlighted the dilemma over the caravan of 30,000 people marching through central America towards the US/ Mexico border.
He has been widely critisised for putting the interests of the Country he presides over before the humanitarian plight of people fleeing hardship and brutality of disfunctional/ criminal Governments.
This is a classic case for the 'rule of ten'. see my post of 2011.

http://www.kevilldavies.com/2011/01/b-b-guests-rule-of-ten.html

The President has decided that if he accedes to their wishes of entry into the US, he will set a precedent for other caravans to follow. The rule of ten says that: If you don't want ten such caravans you don't allow one.

The problem, it seems to me, would best be addressed by tackling the rogue Governments, the corruption and endemic drug based gangs that fuel it. Empower the ordinary people; promote the idea that evil abounds when good people fail to act.

A 'creator' - the case against

The argument in favour of a creator (god) of the universe is based on the exactness of certain measured parameters. The formulation of the components of the hydrogen atom to the disposition of the planet earth in a fairly  routine solar system, according to a 'goldilocks' prescription. The perfect detail of the whole, according to adherents of the idea, leads them to believe that the universe was 'created' by a creator (god).
The Davies Hypothesis, whilst refraining from asking who or what created the 'creator, maintains that unless certain parameters are met, the universe would not have been viable and therefore would have not been created in the first place. You do not need a 'creator' to adopt the only option available.
The key to understanding this argument is accepting that the universe emerged from the absolute nothingness I call the pleroma. This is the best, perhaps the only way one can avoid the problems of infinite regression such as 'who created the creator'.
The absolute nothingness of the pleroma can be thought of as zero and expressed according to the following formula:

P ~ f [ x² + (ix)²] = 0  where ‘i’ is the square root of minus one.

or more strictly: P ~ f [ (±x)² + (±ix)²] = 0
(Note the coefficients of the terms: +1. -1, +i, -i )
Here we have nothing composed of something, two seemingly positive terms cancelling each other out. But how do we get a universe? the 'x' could refer to anything; a cabbage. But what if it refers to the very ingredients and recipe for making a viable (dual) universe?

If the recipe, x, doesn't comply with the requirements to form a viable universe then the universe doesn't come into being. No creator required other than the natural, uncreated order of numbers.

Details are to be found in my book: Spiritual Man: An Introduction to Negative Dimensions.

Brexit update

A reported 700,000 people marched in central London, yesterday, demanding a second referendum on the UK's withdrawal from the European Union. They are arguing that the people were not given all the facts of withdrawal and that, indeed, they had been lied to.
The first referendum was the culmination of a legal process, enacted by Parliament with a huge majority, making the result binding on the Government. The referendum simply asked if the people wanted to be in the EU or out of the EU. This is not a difficult question and to suggest that the people were somehow hoodwinked is to accuse them of being ignorant or stupid or both.
Put another way, the question was whether they wanted to be part of an undemocratic political experiment run by an unelected junta with a record of fiscal mismanagement or be part of a democratic sovereign nation able to set its own laws, control its own borders etc etc. The 'remainers' seem incapable of understanding that not only are the people aware of this, they also understand that the europhiles, driving the protest, are part of the problem in facilitating a deal, by weakening the hand of our negotiators.
With regard to the lies, both sides in the referendum campaign were guilty of exageration and obfuscation especially in forecasts of financial well-being. The question of being poorer or happier was not on the ballot paper. nor was the process being straightforward or not. They are irrelevant. So too the difficulties of the Irish border. Whilst not underestimating the strength of feelings in the island of Ireland, it must not be beyond the wit of man to find a solution that preserves peace.
Let the young vote and determine their own future, was another view well aired; another cynical ploy to increase their electorate, sacrificing mature deliberation based on the wisdom of experience for the unripened reason and incomplete education of kids staright out of the sweetie shop.
This internal friction within our sceptred isles has so weakened the position of Mrs May, trying to appease everyone, I fear she may, now, be incapable of striking a good deal, one that is better than no deal. In the end the result of the march will be exactly the opposite of what the 'remainers' intended.
