At least one of my books has a current best-seller rank!

Nathan Coppedge's Author Page is HERE.

    The things that happen when history is postponed...

    #1 The Popeye Papyrus.

    #2 Physics laws that (consistently) don't work. They just determine future failure. God is a lug-bolt the end.

    #3 Unexplained structures, perhaps created by aliens, like the Eiffel Tower.

    #4 Unexplained and doubly-unexplained construction methods, like how to lift the beams for the Eiffel Tower before perpetual motion machines?

    #5 Inconsistency. Why was there (perhaps?) little known archeological evidence at the site of the Grand Kalifa?

    For those that have missed me the past few days...

    I have been updating a computer with Windows 8, and it has been very frustrating. I plan to return to blog posting consistently soon, if I can.

    I'm also beginning enrollment in a philosophy class this coming semester----'Early Modern Philosophy', including Locke, Hume, Kant, and the like, taught by professor Volkman at SCSU.

    Those that have had his tougher courses can empathize with me. I may be an 'A' or 'B' student, but this guy makes me wonder...

    From what I remember, I've only once gotten a 'B' in a philosophy course, and ironically it was a class called 'Problems in Philosophy'. I got a B+, which from a divinatory point of view, is probably the perfect grade. (there's another class I think may have gotten a 'B' in --- Moral Machines, but I think perhaps it was an 'A' in the end...)  Still, I kind of wish the professor had been less emotional about his grading system. I wrote more intelligent content than the other students, from my point of view. But the professor was from California, and didn't like analytic oriented writing for some reason. And evidently, he hates categorical writing. That was a Professor Rex Gilliland.

    I also took a class by Volkman on ethics that I had to exchange for an incomplete, because I was going through a mental crisis. That was about 10 years ago. Hopefully I won't continue to go through problems like this. Some of the classes have gone well recently (a string of A's and B's), but about two years ago I had to quit Biology 101 because I was feeling physically ill. Eventually I will have to pass Biology to earn my degree, but it looks daunting. Same for Spanish. Not a great subject for me.

    I'm also a little bit angry that I have to take classes in Political Science, and Geography and / or Earth Science.

    It may be a while still before I graduate. But at least I've published more papers on a certain website than any of my professors...! See for yourself (not officially published papers, but nonetheless, intelligent content):

    Worthwhile Magical Things To Do

    |[DOGENDS]| QUALIFIED DOGENDS / Legendary Language

    America now meets the qualifications for the 'Dogends' Concept:

    Immortal[.] is Time

    Dogends were first introduced as un-attached dogends,

    Like: Free 2 Rhyme.

    The abbreviation becomes Free2 and free2 comes to mean the second concept of free. Rhyme may then become a dogend for something else, or completely ignored.

    Keeping the connective as free2rhyme results in a dogmiddle, which may be frowned upon, unless it has a lot of significance.

    It’s part of the intellectualization of colloquialisms, but is also related to math concepts, such as exponents and matrixes.

    The Most Under-Rated Designer! / Design Philosopher: Nathan Coppedge!

    "I love ideas, especially my own ideas. And there's a reason for that..."

    I may have had my hand in the following products and brands:

    In New Haven, someone asked me for an idea of a car, and I said it should be a sort of puffed out coup car designed for the luxury market, but cheap for a luxury car. The man asked me to make a drawing, and I promptly did. It was basically identical to the outer body of the Cooper Mini. This was probably the basis for the design, which appeared about 7 years later (2005 - 2012).

    When I was in California, or just back from vacation in California, someone asked me a question about whether I knew of any names that might work for clothing store, particularly one oriented towards basketball-type products. My answer was "Eb Lens" because it makes people think of dribbling really fast and dunking. He asked me for further explanation, and I said "It's pure psychology. Kind of hard to explain." And I gave an explanation of how ebbing and flowing, "getting a little destructive", and "giving someone the eye" was all about basketball. And, "Basically, because it works" I said. About ten years later, a branch of a company by that name opened in New Haven. And yes, it featured basketball clothing. Unfortunately, I never agreed to receive royalties for the products.

    Keys with Kites Tattoos, now called Keys on Kites. I came up with the name during an ask-for-word-on-the-street contest. The name was later adopted by the Tattoo parlor, which is situated in Westville (don't get a tattoo: I don't like tattoos, and I designed the name for this place).

    Alchemy Club. I came up with the name. Another street contest. I also named Bobby's Grocery in New Haven, after someone I sort of hated (I don't own Bobby's Grocery, but they were looking for a name).

    Also, I suggested 'Evolution Tattoos' in New Haven, which is coincidentally located around the corner from where I live on Orange St. Too bad for them, since I'm not into tattoos. Their logo is similar to the above tattoo (not on my body, or anyone I know). Maybe they'll move to Kits & Nevis around the time the aliens start transporting to surface stations...

    Here is a story of how I designed the projections that now appear at rest-stops across the United States and maybe also artificial trees in the same blow (don't blame me: I didn't think they were phallic. In fact, they were designed not to be. They're just supposed to look modern and exciting...) HERE IS THE LINK.

    So-called Downdraft Energy Tower. I found this in a patent database, and informed an Israeli intellectual. Now it is being built in Arizona (no royalties, yet again).

    I also came up with the lyrics "I'm sexy and I know it" (based on my love of philosophy and being a pariah), and possibly the word 'twerk' in middle school in the 1990's.

    Apparently, I have played a large part in defining culture as we know it today, and yet I'm virtually an unknown. 

    I'm still 32.

    If any of my readers want quick, brilliant design advice about big ideas (suggestions, appearances, new brand names), then by all means contact me at my e-mail with some information about your project: contact [at]

    Feedback will be both limited and unlimited, if you understand me. Royalties are preferred, if you are a representative of a major company. Otherwise, a check in the mail would be excellent (just a donation). Or, a contract can be arranged. E-mail multiple times if necessary. Don't worry, I am interested. I love ideas, especially my own ideas. And there's a reason for that...

    Unconventional Arithmetic

     ]. Meaning ‘finishing touch’. Named after a Greek territory known for making decisive differences in battle.  A more typical usage of this name is as the section of a book used for displaying technical data about publishing. I have created one specific symbol, which plays a similar role for mathematics. However, in mathematics its role is mathematical. It is used for showing missing data or extrapolations, particularly in the expansion of math to logical systems. For example,

    [Mod 4] 4 colophon colophon colophon = {4,4,4,4} or {4,8,12,16} or just [Mod 4 : 16]

    However, in different contexts it has a different relationship.

    | colophon : +4| will multiply everything else by 4.

    |colophon : +1/5| will divide everything else by 5.

    | +10 : colophon | will apply an operation such that the result is always 10.

    Hence, we can say | {x OR y OR z OR ...} : colophon | = God variable  when the variables are free.

    | colophon : (1/ sigma) = God | = x : colophon  could mean that x is a trans-finite number > infinity + 1.

    On the other hand, if | colophon : (1/S) = God | = x : colophon = akhenaton, then we might propose  ‘God i’ as a solution. This is a case where numbers greater than infinity are still incomplete, in other words, where a standard has not been adopted.

    The new symbols are the Akhenaton mentioned earlier, and the God variable, as I define it later in a not-inherently-religious sense.


    [ ‘
    ’ ]. Also called the Hell variable. This is what God equals when the conditions of God cannot be met. For example,

    | {x OR y OR z  OR …} /: colophon | = Demi-god variable. Note the slash before the colon, meaning in the case of the colophon, that x, y, and z cannot be produced at all. This a way of creating true irrational numbers (numbers that cannot be produced). This is also potentially a coherent view of ‘i ’, although such a coherent i might require infinite variables, and is therefore incomplete as a way of guaranteeing its completeness----it is ‘completely incomplete’.

    Similarly, in the opposite case:

    Colophon : {f(x) OR f(y) OR f(z) OR …} = 1 / Demi-god , because  Demi-god = 1/ God i . and Colophon : {f(x) OR f(y) OR f(z) OR …} =  God i.   Therefore,  Hell God i =  1, because God i =  1 / Demi-god .

    Another way to interpret the  Demi-god (Hell) variable, is that it is  hard worker. It tends to emerge as an isolation from conglomerates of other variables. For example, Hell =  1 /God i, where God, i, and 1/x are all isolations themselves. In this way, it is the ultimate concept of an exceptional variable that lies before absolute irrationality. It is, so to speak, the gateway to irrationality.

    ]. My theories on trans-finites predict that infinity is the opposite of the digit one. One is located in the middle of the new Cartesian Coordinate System, thus permitting all symmetric structures to be uneven in value, and thus, permitting these structures (in my system) to exist as entities on the trans-finite level. Even numbers, on the other hand, are compared with reversing the counting motion, returning the value to zero. But, one may ask, if ‘infinity’ is the opposite of ‘one’ --- then what is the opposite of zero? The answer, it appears, is that there is some entity --- real or imagined --- that might be called God (or, in mathematics, the God variable). This entity is the one entity which is beyond infinity, and the one entity that genuinely responds to zero. Discovering a significance for the God variable might be difficult, but tentatively it could involve impossible solutions or unexpected results. The God variable can thus be used to refer to mathematical exceptions. It’s something like if i were a trans-finite number. If there were multiple values of 1i beyond 1 and -1, then we get a concept of the ‘divine zero’. Similarly, if infinite i had values other than -infinity and +infinity, we would get a sense of the divine infinity. The God variable in this sense is about perfect definitions regardless of all conventions whatsoever. The God variable can be understood in its most extensive basic sense as the intensive value-laden product of the most rigorous proof theory. For example, instead of Godel’s Incompleteness, we begin with a free variable, a variable-only calculus. The variable is then defined as a strong variable (whatever that means), and the strong variable is allowed to construct further variables according to the rule that the constructed system is stronger than all available proofs. Although this may seem impossible in the sense that the construction defines its provability, if the system is understood to be arbitrary, exclusive, and stringent, then the structure is stronger as a system than it is as a calculation. By adopting a stronger system than calculation, the God variable appears to hold. Thus, the first property of the God variable is that it is arbitrary or perfect. The second property of the God variable is that it is stronger as a system than it is as a calculation. Beyond that point, it is possible to conceive of systemic variables which meet the criteria. For example, equations, conjunctions, and exclusions fit into the God-variable system. Also, a large class of trivial or qualified variables meet the criteria. These can then be used as a platform for a divine theory of probabilistic occurrence. A third criteria appears to be that the system is not restricted to mathematics. For example, a God variable might project that if there were a God variable, then other variables could be strong. Or, if variables are absolute, then the God variable is rational, thus leading to the conclusion that irrationals are rational. These kinds of deductions serve a proof theory which is broader than mathematics, but which, through the idea that God is a variable, continually refer to mathematics for their idea. Summation in this theory could be seen as related to the theory of being unable to sum, which then relates to the God variable, which then refers to the full definition of the logic. In this way, mathematics becomes purely logical, and logic appears to reduce to the God variable. The God variable can be seen as the principle of rationality, but also the principle of creativity. Working with the God variable involves much more general, and initially much less restrictive considerations. The difficulty is in making the God variable matter for proof theory. For most purposes, it is an Akhenaton, a third wheel. But when mathematical assumptions are put into question, the point is, there is something beyond infinity. Something very small, but very significant. Something involving rationality and creativity. Even if it doesn’t exist, it can be used as a hypothesis to get something from nothing. If it doesn’t exist, then the somethings from nothing are pure formality. But if it does exist, then its legitimate to expand beyond irrationals.

    Clarifying the Role of Virtual Reality in Urban and Sidurban (Outer Space) Futures

    Let me clarify the importance of virtual reality in the quasi-immediate future:

    *First of all, virtual reality will help astronauts and space passengers in particular cope with take-offs and landings.

    *Second of all, integrated preferences (IP2s) will permit an unprecedented intellectual role for citizens in the urban environment. The process begins with gamification, and reaches towards what may be called a serious paradise attitude (SPA), or SPA-system.

    *Integrated preferences (IP2s) will be important for the sleazy meritocracies of the future, defining what it means to think, feel, act, and be.

    *Virtual reality will also serve as a honable idea library and conjunctionsport (HILAC), which will become more important as ideas become ever more condensed, and as there will be greater need to synthesize connections between experiences, due to the important phenomena of information trashing.

    Controversial Quote

    "You might say, by definition 'real rogues are those in power' . But that doesn't mean they aren't good at what they do. They're the people who are qualified to lead the world. If there is ever a revolution, new rogues will take their place. So, oftentimes, revolution is useless, because the people already in power are more experienced. Political justice is always about basic liberties, and that's it. Otherwise it's about the meaning of life or something." ---Nathan Coppedge, or whoever thought of it first

    Advances in Dimensional Metaphysics Qua Mathematics

    Major categories can be separated by what variable they take.

    The result is a hierarchy.

    Time takes extension or the state of dimension as a variable, and takes immortality as an irrational.

    Quantity takes quality as a variable, and takes organization as an irrational.

    Complexity takes quantity and quality as variables, and takes perfection as an irrational.

    Pleasure, on the other hand, takes ‘dimensional’ (the quality of dimension) as a variable, and takes ‘pain’ as an irrational.

    (THE) METAPHYSICAL ART / Magic Writing

    Metaphysical Levels of the 3rd Dimension According to Aestheticureanism or Asceticureanism

    The metaphysical art is the art of changeless variations. Here are motions within the art:

    (A) There are two boulders of equal size. Place an equally-sized boulder between them.

    (B) There is a small boulder and a very large boulder. Place a medium-sized boulder between them.

    (C ) There is a small boulder and a very large boulder. Imagine an infinite boulder beyond the large boulder.

    (D) There is a small boulder and a very large boulder. Find something small and magical in the sand beyond the smaller boulder. If you do not find something, do your best to put something small and magical there in place of the missing object. If you return later, take the object, or return the object, creating a cycle of nature.

    (E) Swing a cheap object on a string, to advertise the one small magical object that you do not possess, or the infinite ones that you do, but which may be invisible.

    (F) Make compositions out of precious objects, finding magic in them. Think if you must.

    (G) Try to balance something on a tall pole stuck in the ground. If you cannot balance the object, then become a tragedian by worshipping the invisible things on the end of the protruding stick.

    (H) Pretend you are a victim to lament the possible loss of immortality. Stick sticks in the ground and lie on your back underneath the sticks, like you have been impaled by the invisible. Construct a spirit to equal the ghosts on the ends of the poles.

    (I) Carry a stick to keep in touch with the ghosts in things. Become animated with the way of the world.

    (J) Put a precious magical thing on a string around your neck. Now you don’t need to play victim. Give it a name, like ‘wishing stone’ or ‘philosopher’s stone’ or ‘washing-stone’ or ‘stone of youth’.

    (K) If you don’t like the stone, throw it in the water. When you feel thoughtful, look for a replacement stone. If you love the stone, keep it on a shelf. Become a hermit.

    (L) Ruminate, so that you remember just how things are.

    (M) Practice un-attachment, and learn time-travel.

    At this point, if you succeed, you have mastered metaphysics for three dimensions.

    The "Day in Which I Out-Did Isaac Newton"---As No Other Than Isaac Newton

    You don't have to agree that I'm more intelligent, just that I might... might have a concept in my mind, on this most improbable of worlds.

    I built a model proving the example of energy ex-nihilo, depending with light importance on the concept of a zero-sum game, and also (also lightly), on the principle of motion from rest.

    The model demonstrated to my satisfaction that while nothing could be got from nothing, in particular arrangements of a material propensity, energy might be had from the concomitant effect of one part acting upon another, much as mass is known to continually pull upon a horizontal tether when directed sideways by a sloped angle.

    I concocted four principles which explain the propensity for eternal motion.

    Then I put my mind to prove that gamma waves could convex over the problem of reverse gravity---and constructed an experiment which showed (with due caution to error), that an object consisting of a marble sphere, might rise upward of its own volition...!

    There was an inquisitor, who stated that I could not possibly out-do my own work from merely 200 years ago...

    That's terribly what they think when they're not the inventor of perpetual motion...!

    Actually, not all of it happened in one day, and some of it is in doubt.

    Or, for a "treat" see my Physics & Engineering Papers:

    I also have a book accounting of my experiments called The Scientific Papers, and another book in progress called The Scientific Theories, which has Aristotle and social science in mind.



    "Coppedge conceived dimensional phenomenology to be the ‘fourth dimension of dimensionism.’ The themes introduced cross boundaries between philosophy and psychology, spirituality and the life sciences, with a focus on what is most vitally important to experience: what we need to understand, how we feel, and in what ways we go about understanding and emoting. Coppedge addresses such themes as emotional meaning, intuitionism, existential mereology, and material semantics in this striking and colorful work, always with a view towards the methods and perceptions which are most exemplary of the phenomenological experience."

    This title is available at Amazon HERE, or just search 'books' for 'dimensional encyclopedia' (6 others available on Philosophy, Psychology, Biology, Time Travel, Immortality, and Spell-Casting).



    This is a book designed to aid in psychic prediction. It includes over five different methods plus supplementary materials, with descriptions adequate to make the psychic work for you!

    From the Introductory Note:

    “This book was composed on a number of inspired occasions. It was composed specifically in relation to another longer work related to psychology, titled The Dimensional Psychologist’s Toolkit. In that work, I attempted to make my intentions clear that one of the objects of the text was to broach the topic of psychic knowledge. But, unfortunately, due to the title I chose, readers were unable to determine quickly enough that that is what the book contained. This text is an attempt to re-purpose that material exclusively for its usefulness---as the title says---for psychic prediction. At least one major technique has been added since the last publication of The Dimensional Psychologist’s Toolkit, and all major references to psychic prediction have been included, in order to make all of this material available in as simple and proficient a form as possible.”

    At first, at the time one has doubtful significance, there is a selection of magic books. These books exist in the world of Realism, which is the ‘elaborate’ (many things will begin with ‘E’) attempt to be helpful and accurate.

    Vast Difference, the first book.

    In some worlds the person is surrounded with danger. This is a sign of not having a good mate. Other texts or ‘clues’ will present themselves (suggesting the importance of the letter ‘C’). For example,

    The Use of Deadly Force. The second book.

    These (later) books or information should not be taken seriously, as they are really flirtations from higher powers. However, they can be used to ‘evolve’---the third book (back to the letter ‘E’).

    Evolution may take place by reading the books one has been carrying all along, the magical / secret books about life in this magic world. It may involve a special ability or saving throw, such as imitating Love or Jesus.

    The new power will be to gain significance for the gods---the fourth book. This may involve the elimination of the surrounding dangers.

    That’s the basic tutorial on essential metaphysical survival.

    I have an imitator

    who has just started a new website.

    Some of his work is convincing, whereas other of it simply misses the facts.

    For example, he dismisses 'unbalanced wheels' while adopting a design he thinks is unbalanced that is very similar to a design widely disproven by experiment.

    In my own principles the Bhaskara vertical wheel type designs don't work because of a dual-directional problem with the rising and falling weights, what has conventionally simply been called 'symmetry'.

    Anyway, have a look if you like, at "Simon's Wheel":

    Progress in Mathematics: Trans-Finite Primer Part II.

    I think I found a math system where 0/0 actually equals zero, unlike the current system, where it equals 1, and then divided by zero again, equals infinity, etc.

    Mathematicians treat this as a simple conventionality, but it is a large thing to overlook, in my opinion.

    In the new theory, 1 / infinity = infinity / 1 as usual (I think), since infinity = infinity = infinity...

    However, 2 infinity would equal 0, as well as all other even numbered infinities.

    The result is a system in which 2 infinity / 2 infinity = 0 instead of 1.

    However, all the other discrepancies appear to be overcome, with the possible exception that there is a kind of quantum flux or uncertainty to the process of counting infinities...

    I have used my variation on trans-finite numbers to calculate the types of deductions possible in larger category sets. The following matrix is produced for the first three charts of modulus 4 (some of the values are left unsolved as I have heard is common with trans-finites).

    A = infinity,  1/infinity,  3 infinity,  1 / 3 infinity
    BCD = 3 infinity, 1/3infinity, (1 inf. + 2 inf. = ) infinity, 1/ infinity
    ABCD = 4 infinity, 1/ 4 infinity, 12 infinity, 1 / 12 infinity
    EFGHIJKLMNOP = 12 infinity, 1/12 infinity, ( (4/infinity) * inf. ^2)=) 4 infinity, 1/4 infinity
    {1 to 16} = 16 infinity, 1/16 infinity, 48 infinity, 1/48 infinity
    {17 to 64} = 48 infinity, 1/48 infinity, (((4/inf. * 4/inf) inf. ^2) =) 16 inf., (1/1/2inf. =) 1/16 inf.

    The point being that 2 infinity from the first square results in 2 deductions, the 2 or sixteen infinity from the second square results in sixteen parts split over a duality, and the end result of (4 (4 / inf. * 4 / inf. ) inf ^ 2 = 4) for the third square results in four minimal deductions for the sixty-four square diagram, again split into dualities.

    What we have conceived of resembles Plato's system...

    Yes, there is a class of immortals, a class of tacticals, and a class appeased by passion.

    Now, surely we will try to integrate these parts, if we are to find harmony.

    How, for example, could I integrate 'immortality' with 'tactics'?

    We have already described the immortals as being more thoughtful than the others.

    At least, they are concerned with something less transient.

    For example, I said that 'tactics' is required because of neediness.

    If we ignore long-term tactics, that seems to be the case...

    Now, if I am eternity, I certainly have a weak enemy, whom I try to agree with.


    And this 'enemy' would be called 'modularity' I suppose.

    Modularity is an enemy you could duel with, to try to establish harmony.

    The end result would surely be more dimensional!

    For sure!

    And if I am not a god, then surely I would wish to be more dimensional!

    I am in agreement.

    What people want appears to be a dimensional world, as I suspected!

    That is what you have suggested, but what are our options for a dimensional world?

    Of course, what we mean by a dimensional world is a world that is easier and more interesting!

    Wouldn't everyone inevitably migrate towards such a world?

    Except for those unfortunates who do not conceive of a life of peace!

    I suppose soldiers would seem unfortunate, because they expect war.

    War is obviously not what we mean by this form of evolution.

    Then what are the weaknesses?

    The weakness of reality appears to be fantastic 'unreality'.

    How so?

    Well, death and everything that brings death is ideally unreal.

    How could we oppose desire?

    We might define a world as a place for appreciating both.

    What if unreality is the gentlest concept that can be applied to our reality?

    That seems obvious, now that I think of it!

    What if unreality is the most meaningful concept that can be applied to our reality?

    Then we would inevitably migrate to somewhere more interesting!

    ----Nathan Coppedge, "The Telos".


    "We find causation meaningless, so objects are real! Of course! Even if they participate with our minds, that doesn't mean that the objects or the mind have to be absolute! Nor does it guarantee that we don't have a mind. To prove a mind does not require proving a complete mind, for according to relativity, any kind of mind is, in some way, a mind. Therefore, whatever has an opinion that it is a mind, is in some way, officially, a mind. For any sort of mind is capable of meaningful translation, even if the perspective that translates is not the original mind. The mind itself is a kind of object, even if there is no standard to objectify it. The absence of standards is never reason enough to prove that something is without reality."
    ---Nathan Coppedge, June 2015.


    *It may be noted that the implication here is that all experiences are perfect which are not conceptualisms, which is perhaps a crutch, but a good one, particularly when it is noticed that perfect pain is distinguished from perfect pleasure, and some terms may be lightened by critical evaluation. E.g. if experience is ‘best defined’ to be perfect, perfect pain now means something absurd or paradoxical, like all evil things. Pleasure, on the other hand, must become complex to realize its potential, or must be treated as something universal or inherent. If pain must be present and cannot be evaluated, this is simply the occurrence of a metaphysical paradox which says that pain is paradoxical in spite of the fact that the perfect world has not been achieved. Small critical details (‘errata’) remain with the least solvable problems. The most obvious solutions to those problems, on the other hand, announce themselves via their importance in language, or as happenstantial virtues----things that only have ‘ultimate’  importance in the perfect world. ---Nathan Coppedge, The Dimensional Phenomenology Toolkit (italics mine).

    MY BEST ARGUMENT AGAINST THEISM [Re-Posted from Yahoo Answers]

    Here is my best attempt to prove that God doesn't exist:

    (1) I exist, and I'm not God, therefore, God is not omnipresent. (God is not me, so that is one 'place' that is not God).
    (2) Evil exists, therefore, God is not omni-benevolent. I don't find the argument that God has a long-term plan convincing. Disaster is not a long-term plan. And nature could exist as a result of a learning process, so there is no NECESSITY to believe the Ontological Argument for God.
    (3) By the time someone such as God is omniscient, there is necessarily more to know than before: one level of omniscience leads to another level of omniscience (as in Godel's incompleteness). Therefore God is either infinite, or he is NOT omniscient. But since he is not omnipresent or omnibenevolent (benevolence would result from being infinitely powerful), therefore he cannot be infinite, so he cannot be omniscient.
    (4) A God who does not prevent all disasters is not omnipotent, since preventing disaster is what omnipotence is good for. And an omnipotent being who was a creator of his creation would prevent disaster if it was easy to do. So, again, he is not omnipotent.

    (5) Conclusion: God doesn't exist in the sense of omni-presence, omni-benevolence, omni-science, or omni-potence, therefore he doesn't exist at all. Better bets are atheism or limited polytheism.

    On the other hand, God might cause everything to exist just as it is BY SHEER COINCIDENCE OF JUSTICE. In that case, God would be an artist that improves things outside himself. But since these 'creations' are evidently not God, then necessarily God would not be omnipresent, and therefore the other arguments would follow.

    Or, you can conclude that God is imperfect, even though he has all the properties of being God.


    Pleasure tends to be moral for elites!
    Perpetual motion is real!
    People are much less circumspect than was ever thought. When we realize this, we can move forward!
    Human potential is like good versus evil!


    Evil is sometimes familiar things, like beer and Stephen King!
    Even unsustainability is about sustainability!
    Politics rules, not guns!
    Millenials aren't worthless!

    “Hannah, You Were Wrong…” [LYRICS]

    This song was composed based on a dream. It is about a heroin addict who dies by being hit with a bicycle because she is emaciated. But it is also supposed to indicate the folly of not believing in perpetual motion. The question Jenna Lee asks (e.g. at some kind of futuristic camp while she is dying of heroin) is: ‘could it have been different?’ Or, ‘What if Hannah had just believed in her own son?’ Essentially, the song is a peinn about pain: the tragedy of not believing in perpetual motion, the ultimate loss, comparable to a heroin addiction. Jenna Lee* , who represents both the world’s evils and the victims of those evils, not only asks the question, but dies trying to answer it. The song is also written to all the potential future victims of industrial-scale perpetual motion machines, who happen to hold a similar status to Jenna. The theme of Christianity is used ironically both to refer to the public’s ‘faith’ in science, and also to refer to the victims of perpetual motion machines, who may have been seeking belatedly and perhaps quixotically to resolve the problem of scientific ignorance about its reality. Thus, Christianity has a kind of schizophrenia, and Nathan Coppedge becomes the doubtful leader representing the Antichrist-image of real knowledge (bounded Cartesian Coordinates or ‘Omni-Science’), and again ironically, he is not a victim of his machines. Thus, in this story, the original victim---Nathan Coppedge, slighted by the scientists and his mother Hannah---- is the savior in the symbolic sense of representing those who are not victimized by the machines, and also the devil of the story, in that he appears to have caused the entire problem, represented ironically by a question. What is meant by the final line ‘Hannah, you were wrong…’ is not entirely resolved by the end of the story. But suffice to say, that she is both the creator and destroyer of perpetual motion. Where Hannah is weak is where history succeeds, and where science admits its failure. But without Hannah, there would be no Nathan, no demon behind the incarnations of the new industrialism… The story is further complexified by the idea that Nathan could be a fool… which may be the ultimate thing to react against, when the topic is real, working perpetual motion.

    *(similar to ‘General Lee’ a figure despised by industrialists who inspired Nathan’s perpetual motion designs).



    When Jenna Lee,

    A Christian tramp,

    Had a question,

    Asked around

    She bet we heard,

    It TIMES be-fo-o-ore….

    2. [CHORUS]

    We came upon her

    By the shore

    We mounted our bicycles

    For the last trek

    We came upon her bones

    As we went back…

    To the camp…

    Hannah, you were WRO-o-o-oNG!

    Billing himself as a philosopher, artist, inventor, and poet, Nathan promotes himself mostly online. However, his ambitions are archaic: building perpetual motion machines, writing neo-classical literature, making sublime poems. He also makes modern art! In school, he excels, until he develops madness while attending college in New York State during the September 11th attacks. While still attending school in New Haven for a philosophy degree, he writes numerous books and quotations, creates hundreds of art works, and think he has found the secret of perpetual motion---even if he can’t build it himself. Nathan Coppedge has also spoken or written under a variety of different personalities, such as in previous lives, and by faking other people’s quotes. Through this method his influence has become far more powerful than you might expect for someone of his demeanor or class. The following… quotes come not only from Nathan Coppedge’s primary writings, but also from Coppedge’s previous lives and alter-egoes… Here is the story of the mischief I wreaked throughout history----also the story of a reformed intellectual! Readers will also be pleased to find most of Nathan’s recent and more important quotations.

    New Book: Advanced Platonism



    This book comes as an offshoot of my earlier book, Basic Platonism, which explains Platonic concepts largely in terms of snatches of an imagined dialogue with figures on their voyage through and beyond the caves of pretended knowledge. In this text, I address what may be called the tacit ideas of Platonism, the themes which according to Plato’s intelligence remain unquestionable, and thus, the theories that are most wise to Plato’s sense of himself and of nature. The idea is not to move beyond certainty as he understood it: to appraise him as a truth-oriented disciple of Socrates, someone with great ideas and great critical faculties. The structure of Aristotle’s work “The Categories” has been adopted loosely as the structure of this work, which seems appropriate since Aristotle was Plato’s best student, and thus the one most apt to understand the implications of his work... [T]he object of this book is to summarize the gist of Plato’s best ideas... sparing him from no critique, and offering a condensed version of what may be taken to be his most epochal themes, and those which most easily lend themselves to notes... I hope that this text is a joy to read…

    The book may be found on Amazon HERE.

    The cover depicts Aristotle, on purpose...(he was Plato's most advanced student).

    Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs says that it's good for love and making wishes.

    But, in my limited experience with the herb (and I think I'm sensitive), I feel that it makes me feel possessed, and then grants me considerable intelligence gradually. In my view, this is only the second of three personalities of Ginseng.

    The first is intelligent lovers, who mistake it for love, but are really boosting their obsession with their own intelligence.

    The third personality is less intellgent people who think it connotes wisdom, plain and simple. But this just means they think it means other people's intelligence.

    So, riddle solved! Ginseng just means possession in exchange for long-term intelligence. If you're wishing for intelligence, then it could mean wishing, too! And if you're wishing for intelligent love, then it could also help there, unless you don't want to feel possessed!

    So, riddle solved! No further look for information about Ginseng. It is likely to deceive you.

    And, if you want a cheap immortality remedy, look no further than Turmeric ('yellow root'), rather than Ginseng.

    Recent Quotes by Nathan Coppedge (Early August 2015)

    "Mathematical incoherency might be solvable by referring to something non-mathematical." ---Nathan Coppedge, The Solutions, August 2015.

    "Because there is no innate unique thing separating the arbitrariness of one body from the arbitrariness of another body, so too, there is no innate unique sense of experience. Hence, there is no innate sense of Solipsism. You may not experience someone else's body---but in a way you already are!" ---Nathan Coppedge, The Solutions, August 2015.

    "Preferences are the maximal requirement for the will." ---Nathan Coppedge, The Solutions, August 2015.

    "[T]here is potentially no relation between free will and determinism. Free will represents the authentic sense of changeable objects, whereas determinism is a sense of changeless objects, of varying ambiguity." ---Nathan Coppedge, The Solutions, August 2015.

    "You could say economics is the evolution of evolution. And meaning is the evolution of economics. But whether we reach each of these stages depends on the exact circumstances that pre-figure their possibility. In this way, meaning is still evolution, and economics is still survival." ---Nathan Coppedge

    "Criticism ends with an artistic choice... It is tempting to say that it is only this sense in which art is mad... Even when people consider other distinctions, there is nothing about the process that is not either exceptional or desperate... And evolution itself evinces desperation..." ---Nathan Coppedge

    These might include science fiction authors, philosophers, etc.

    Amadeus Mozart --- abstract predictions making life more creative for everyone.
             Concept of 'life's variations' elaborated from earlier composers.
    Bible writers --- perpetuated the concept of prophecy as something that was not idiotic.
    Protagoras -- concept of relativity / all arguments are good.
    Plato --- self-fulfilling prophecy of the Republic form of government.
    Aristotle --- created logic no one else knew existed.
    Lichtenberg --- made many predictions modern for their time, including that
                metaphysics could be mad.
    Husserl --- formalized the beginnings of objective knowledge, including
             the state / quality distinction.
    Marx --- contributed the concept of Communism.
    George Orwell --- largely prophetic mentality.
    Immanuel Kant --- secular humanism and criminal justice.
    Neil Gibson --- science fiction writer predicted the computer 'core' .
    Neil Stephenson --- science fiction writer predicted metaverse.

    Looking at these, it is like there is a growing metaphysical trend----unless that is just the temptation of geniuses... Aristotle would know!

    I have a number of works I classify this way, including works included in the One-Page Classics volume, particularly involving philosophy, and works published pseudonymously under the name Master Kuo, including The Lessons of the Master and The Story of Master Wu.

    These works meet a unique definition of hyper-fiction not by using hypertext links, but by being super-intra-associative, super-lucid, and having a degree of consistency in the value of content between the multiple types of works in the genre by the same author.

    Essentially, I define hyper-fiction particularly as a type of fiction that incorporates lists or list-like elements (or in longer works, many value-equivalent sentences), the effect being to create images which are super-intra-associative. The association may take place by engaging the reader in the action of the story, producing insight (as in philosophy), generating an idea of a particular word (such as 'parable' for example), or simply structuring the content of the story itself.

    In order to begin the process of association which I find to be necessary, it is often helpful to begin writing with one image, which may be located at any point in the story. This image may be especially 'hyper' in order to define the genre. Here are some examples:

    1. A copy of the story Flatland.
    2. A horizontally-scanning X-Ray.
    3. A Cubist or Bauhaus hotel.
    4. An art museum located in the fourth dimension.


    The central image then creates an implied structure for some part (or all!) of the story. For example, the copy of Flatland can create mathematical or typological variations on other themes. The X-ray can involve dimensions with anthropology. The Bauhaus hotel can lead to concepts which are more dimensional than Cubism, or inside the hotel, less dimensional, and more proto-logical. An art museum located in the fourth dimension allows associations between different types of dimensions as they might be seen in the fourth dimension.

    Characters in these stories might be different people from different backgrounds representing the different points of view present within the picture of different situations relevant to describing the overall common image of a hyper-cube, or they might be gods or heroes who someohow extend the shape of the story through their own significance.

    An important factor may be determining how the story begins and ends. A story may for example, begin with empty space or mystery, representing the un-defined dimension. Or it may begin with an idea of complexity, and deconstruct until nothing is left. Other approaches are more difficult, but it might be possible in a highly systematic work to produce multiple sets which are equivalent, and held together by some common factors which are neither fully complex, nor fully empty, as in Life: A User's Manual by Georges Perec. In his case the subject of the book was life itself, providing ample material for commonly-valued sentences which are created using a highly complex system in his work.

    It may be helpful to arrange events in the story in direct response to 'supernatural' occurences, such as unusual or bizarre or magical things that happen to the characters. This is a particular characteristic of hyper-fiction: the aspect of requiring special evidence to qualify as fiction at all. Much content is simply too mundane to serve as more than fodder for far-separated details within the work. Thus, categories must be considered carefully, and the writing must be kept clean and succinct, but not through a loss of the all-important images. More important than images, however, is the categories behind the images. Often, well-chosen categories are enough to describe a well-formed story, if you have already found your written voice.

    So, as an overview: (A) Structure relating to dimensions, (B) Categories following from structure inspired or not, (C) Gods or heroes as characters, (D) Logical organization from beginning to end, (E) Specific descriptions follow supernatural events to help content.

    That's about all. If you have constructed a piece of hyper-fiction recently, let me know about it by posting a comment on this post!

    A long-delayed project, this is the first volume of the Archemesis / Quadrant Bible devoted to Genesis / Engenesis.


    “…From this wonder gardens of archemesis Grew trees like shadows, and Eyes and dark flowers like the fire And some tangled in the mind Like trees that grew flowers And firey birds with shadowed eyes…” (ENGENESIS: 1:20) Describing his own unique interpretation of Genesis, Nathan Coppedge commands extraordinary language in this literary feat mixing Judaism, Christianity, and Paganism, that will move you to tears. The text follows the same order as the Jewish Tanakh Bible edition of Genesis. However, every verse has been painstakingly translated into a unique form of poetry incorporating words for alchemical symbols such as phoenixes, fire, coins, and trees, and emotionally overpowering language. Also included is a ‘Concordia’ of a type that accompanies many traditional bibles, as well as a short list of prayers of a Christian or Pagan variety.

    The text can be purchased on Amazon HERE.


    A devil is never THE devil! It just doesn't work out that way! Devils are exceptional people that have taken on the name because they can fulfill the role! End of story!

    Magic exists, it's just that when you prove it, it disappears! Real magic is a lot like science! It's very easy, very intelligent science!

    Investment: you can try mutual funds, but it's pure evil!

    Investment: If you have a lot of time, bond papers will pay off eventually! The bank can't deny that you invested in them! But if you have a cap on your income, it may be illegal!

    Here is something for immortality: the yellow root, or Turmeric! It aids digestion, as the Asian herbalists always say!

    How to solve every paradox: reverse every essential term in the best definition of each problem, in the same order! It's called a paroxysm!

    This is cold fusion: fusion without radioactivity!

    Things that Are Divine About Me

    1. I'm seeking immortality.

    2. The first major thing I noticed was that I decided to grow a tendon in the middle of my neck, joining in the center behind my spine. Before that, I had two tendons, like normal people. It grew by willpower! And it's not a normal human structure!

    3. From what I can tell, I gained the power to naturally synthesize small amounts of telomerase, an immortality substance, by following certain instructions (imagine that your cells have little hooks, then repair the hooks, see what your brain can do, creating a pleasant, chalky, milky feeling in your brain, now you should notice effects on your youthfulness).

    4. I have never drunk more than a sip of coffee in my life.

    5. I'm not an alcoholic.

    6. I have never used street drugs, unless the one immortality pill I took was speed. I plan to take another one next summer (TeloRx).

    7. I don't have a venereal disease.

    8. I paid off my college loans.

    9. I made the sky turn periwinkle blue, and then purple, from what I can tell, by wishing for good things.

    10. I could choose which way my hair was directed by willpower, starting in 2015, based on a theory that people choose which direction their hair goes when they swipe it with their right or left hand. But this was something more divine than that: I could choose at any time!

    11. I grew not copper, but metallic gold colored hair on my beard!

    Superficial things for now, perhaps! But, if things improve, then they will be much better, so to speak! A major goal is to improve musculature when I'm 100! Earlier than that and the effect is atavistic, in my view...

    There were summers once
    Before the red
    Turned whiter
    Still than summer light
    As white as red
    The summer leaf
    Like fire beneath
    The autumn sheaf
    As fire beneath
    And storms above
    All winging cranes
    And crooked crows
    Such things divine
    Beyond the heat
    Not merest white
    And fallen snow
    Like whiter suns
    That turn their tone
    As doves beneath
    A hazel thorn
    And not as wide
    Appalled as night
    To keep the fire
    And form the birds
