One of the Funnest Things I've Ever Experienced:

THE VENDETTA OF KNOWLEDGE


Follow light, and you will be pursued by dark.

Follow dark, and you will escape the light.

Worship mystery, and you will not bear suffering.

Acquire truth, and suffering becomes currency.

Know of mystery, and you will know of mastery.

Know of problems, and you will know of intelligence.

Escape everything, and you will know nothing.

Escape nothing, and you will know something.

A FEW ODD AXIOMS


Something is part of everything, if there is anything in everything.

Everything is at least one thing.

We can make everything that we can make everything of.

Nothing is the only nothing, unless it is plural and the same.

(To the extent that these preceding axioms are trivial, they are wrong.)

Expensiveness is great if rare is great.

Efficiency is great if philosophy is great.

Some of these axioms may also be found at: http://www.nathancoppedge.com/exceptionisms.html

When something in the middle is ignored, there is a reason to be superstitious.

What if I invented the God Particle?


Invented the God Particle?

Now it's encased in cement!

We're doing the Star Wars thing!

If we're doing the Star Wars thing

Then it's encased in cement

And when it wasn't observed, it wasn't.

So, someone invented the God Particle.

It might have been the one who thought of it.

Who thought of thinking it---

Who thought God Particles could be invented---

A polytheist

With a theosophical bent.

Perhaps the inventor of Atheistic Theology:

And who is that?

Nathan Coppedge for one!

Maybe there's more than one inventor of the God Particle

But only if there's only one God.

Multiple Gods would make one decision---

See what I mean?

It's the mind seal of the God Particle.

Will Time Travel Affect Our Memory? (Via Quora)

Great Question!
In my experiences with what I take to be time travel, memory was affected in the following ways:
*Most noticeably, I could remember the future as well as the past.
*However, the future I remembered did not necessarily belong to the same world I was living in then (after time-traveling). This lent a certain quality of unpredictability to my memories. For example, I couldn't necessarily remember the 'real past' of the world I was living in afterwards, as it was possible that the body that I time-traveled to really lived a different life than my own past to which I originally wished to return.
*In general, because of this, memories become less trustworthyBut, usually, it is just a mistake of confusing the future with the past, or one person with another.
*In general, there are more memories, and more types of memories, but not exponentially more, because it is just an additional factor of future as well as past memories. Arguably, however, this could make it twice as complicated.
*However, understanding time as a continuum with past and future makes memories more coherent, since they are not always arguably gone forever. The same events might happen again, so memories are more relevant than before.
*In fact, once I found that I even re-created the same work of art again, meaning that there is a high amount of inspiration which is just built into experiencing a certain time.
*So, there is more awareness of what memory means, but less trustworthiness about the real past and the real future.

Super Cute Things


(I have a small stuffed animal I consider to be very cute. I've fallen in love with him and carry him everywhere).

"Impossibly cutie"

"So cute it's cute-or-riffic"

"Abominably cute"

"I'm so cutie it's a virtual reality!"

"So cutie I don't know what is cuter than cute cute cute"

"Feet on the ground, staring around..." (from 'the song from whatever era' as I call it).

By the way, the study of cuteness I consider to be called Nepotism (the extra cute word for the study of cuteness---!)

Platonic Dimensionalism


Here's an insight I just had (seriously).

Perhaps higher dimensions are 'curled up' after all. I had contradicted statements made by some string theorists that higher dimensions are in fact curled up on their vertices somehow.

But now I think I understand the concept. It involves a higher dimension of perception, but not necessarily a higher dimension of matter.

What is involved is that a line may become a circle, which is perceived as a line in its center, but becomes circular and narrower, and fades away on both sides.

In this way, a triangle might have a bottom as well as a top made of three parts. You think that's the third dimension, but it's also the fourth-dimensional view of the second dimension!

Similarly, a square might be a sphere if the lines have no where to go (e.g. in Cartesian Space), or it might become fragmented. The rational answer is that it, too must be a three-d figure when projected into the four-d realm.

And the same for every other shape!

The perceptions we observe, if they are 2-d projections in the 4-d realm, must be mere pictures if we ever live in 4-d.

Planes on the other hand will be like what we know of 3-d, except they will have properties instead of depth. I think that is the conclusive answer.

PREMIER PHILOSOPHICAL RESEARCH PART 3: The Ethics of Bookshelves


In the first place, what if a bookshelf is not supposed to bear much weight?

What if the whole object of a bookshelf is to not sustain beyond a certain number of pounds-per-inch?

In this case, the value of the bookshelf is its capacity for efficiency,

Or worse, emptiness.

This is similar to the architectural proviso of modernism,

the proviso for 'empty space, and nothing more!'

But this defies the purpose of a bookshelf, which is obviously to contain books.

Yet, the prescription is not one for heavy books specifically, unless the only goal is to physically
fill the bookshelf.

There must then be a spiritual prescription,

The prescription for appropriate literature.

But, if we said that the literature should be unseemly, steaming, or passionate,
that would defy the point of the ethical bookshelf in its specific mission.

One might say, perhaps the ethical bookshelf should contain only ethical books.

But, philosophically, ethical books raise a lot of questions about ethics that are
only ethical if they are answered satisfactorily.

So, in the sense of requiring ethical books, one should require ethical books of ANSWERS!

Yet, if ethical answers do, then one might as easily include answers of other kinds!

These other 'answer books' might provide answers on more practical subjects,
subjects that do not answer generally about all behavior, but instead give specifics
on how to act in certain cases, such as with carpentry or gluing.

But, now we are tempted to say that what is contained on the shelf is necessarily
non-fiction books, and the only criteria is that they provide 'answers'.

So, there should be some additional criteria which says that these books have some
special importance for the reader.

Either these books provide spiritual answers, or they provide just the right knowledge,
or they are books that for one reason or another are loved dearly.

There is then no definite criteria about the ethical bookshelf.

It is a shelf-of-books. It provides answers. Answers that are dearly loved.

Yet the books may be very light or very hefty.

They may be religious treatises or books about carpentry.

They may be picture books, novels, plays, cartoons, or summaries.

In short, anything may be required on the ethical bookshelf as long as it serves some purpose.

Specifically, the ethical purpose of the bookshelf is not even about whether the books are read.

They may serve an ethical purpose by being un-read, and therefore they may even be sinful books.

Or, they may be books that are referred to now-and-then. Aphorisms, precepts, and truisms.

The ethical bookshelf appears to be in one sense pragmatic, and in another sense illusory.

The books may be ephemera when the lesson is learned permanently, or when purposes are temporary.

The bookshelf becomes a particular place in the wilderness of civilization.

Particularly a place where the ethical purpose is manifest.

QUOTES LATE JANUARY 2016

The first quote is revised.

"When you take account of everything, my observation is that evil people are communicators, and good people are philosophers. The world is full of un-observed evil. And it is only philosophy that recovers from this. Good and evil are like different species, and so the common language of morality must appear different to different people. There are also some people who merely indulge, or merely learn (which is sort of the same thing) , or those who are exploring a limited number of options. We must either question that opportunity is what grants the good, or we must deny that good people are anybody but the innocent." ---Nathan Coppedge, Jan 2016 via Quora


"Some forms of pleasure are better than philosophy, but they are very rare. On the other hand,
philosophers should understand if people want what they want, and make choices based on what appears practical."   ---Nathan Coppedge, Jan 2016 via Quora


"Realize that even the future is a dynamic place. The present expresses the future in terms of the past. The past, when it is close to the present, is close to the future. Gear the present to the future by using the past! If you can, imagine that the past is still alive! Imagine that the future already has consciousness! Attempt to live the 'eternal present'! The way to gauge the eternal present is your level of health and well-being! If you are even marginally successful, you can have a long life!" ---Nathan Coppedge, The Time Technique


"An entity may be explained generally as a causal origin." ---Nathan Coppedge, writing on entics.

THE "TIME TECHNIQUE"


This is a method of extending life, using many-worlds theory and ontological existence.

1. Get a clue.

The future is there to be understood.

Develop any number of degrees of guesswork to find the instance of your future that makes physical sense.

Predict things such as:

A. Where will I travel to?
B. Will I be active or passive?
C. How far will I travel in the local area?
D. What will be the form of my body's movements?
E. What will be my pattern of motion through rooms?

Finally, decide to some extent, as if in terms of rules, how or where one will be in a few minutes,
days, or decades.

2. Improve your mental attitude.

Part of sharing in your future existence is sharing in your future brain.

Your future brain in a sense, exists NOW.

You want to realize your future physical, if not mental brain.

And you want your current brain to improve.

This specifically involves connecting with your future self.

When you have some physical energy from the future, your mental energy can improve.


3. Feel the Strands of Your Future Body!

Realize that even the future is a dynamic place.

The present expresses the future in terms of the past.

The past, when it is close to the present, is close to the future.

Gear the present to the future by using the past!

If you can, imagine that the past is still alive!

Imagine that the future already has consciousness!

Attempt to live the 'eternal present'!

The way to gauge the eternal present is your level of health and well-being!

If you are even marginally successful, you can have a long life!


4. Manifest your future body!

A. Develop continuity with the past.
B. Manifest the present.
C. Feel the strands of your future.
D. Manifest the future in the present, in terms of energy.

Consequence: the future will have more energy.

One side effect to avoid: weight gain.

You may have to try dieting along with this plan.

It is a sign that your temporal presence is increasing!

Close call! Another source looks similar to categorical deduction (but not quite!)


Nicholas Rescher, Process Metaphysics (1987), in a section on the American philosopher Wilmon Sheldon (1875 - 1981): "In particular, Sheldon saw the conflict of philosophical systems---materialism vs. idealism, intellectualism vs. voluntarism, determinism vs. indeterminism, and so on---as products of failure to realize the existence of productive polar TENSIONS through the distorting over-emphasis on ONE OF TWO interconnected polar opposites... The real phenomena we confront are one and all products of creative opposition of polar opposites..." (p. 24)


This seems very close to categorical deduction, but the description is not clear enough to say whether Sheldon thought the result was coherent. I will do further research soon.


Sheldon does not appear to say that the opposites are opposed on the diagonal, OR that a coherent sentence can be formed of them, which are both critical developments for REAL COHERENT KNOWLEDGE.

Roots of Dimensionism / Dimensionalism in Picabia

Quotes by Nathan Coppedge:

"Translating age might yield youth.
Youth is age’s experience, except with the avant-garde.
Psychiatrists would say God is the avant-garde.
We shouldn’t age except by holiness.
Holiness has the promise of the sacred life."
 ---Spiritual Writings (#1)

"For it (truth) is (inherently) coherent. What is incoherent is coherently incoherent. I find this to be a rule of nature." ---2014

"Coherence breeds incoherence."


I have recently noted that Picabia wrote similarly in 1949: "Knowledge is an old error that thinks of its youth. Illogicity invented logic...Art is the worship of error. To fear the senses is to become a philosopher." (Francis Picabia, 4 March 1949, quoted in I AM A BEAUTIFUL MONSTER: Poetry, Prose, and Provocation by Francis Picabia, p. 379).

A translation of parts of Picabia's work is subsequently being added to the Golden Notebook (the new addition has not yet been published, as of 2016/01/13).

More later, perhaps.

Could the universe be cyclic with an infinite past and future but with periods of "big-bang", existence, "big-collapse" (over) and over? Why or why not?

Via Quora.

Linear development implies evolution. Therefore, intuitively, if the universe did collapse, it would collapse for a reason. For example, the universe might collapse when developing into a higher or lower dimension.

However, from the standpiont of evolving beings, the 'big collapse' is sort of like a convenient coincidence permitting transit into higher or lower dimensions, a kind of 'doorway'. Otherwise, we have to say that we aren't really evolved after all, because we are actually incapable of determining whether the linear development continues, or that we have no capacity to transit to higher or lower dimensions.

The going theory is physics appears to be that there is no causal relation between meso phenomena like humans and macro phenomena like galaxies. But couldn't there be some form of 'correspondence theory' or 'synergasm' in which human evolution is an attempt to predict natural laws to its own advantage?

This kind of theory would predict that the universe tends to live about as long as humans are capable of evolving. Unpredictable result, but sort of interesting. Otherwise, because of the gap in numbers, the universe tends to be best perceived as eternal and infinite, or as a handicap on human progress.

But, why would there be a 'gatekeeper' like black holes? It is more likely that past a certain point we have some control over the number of dimensions that are manifest, or at least the number of dimensions we perceive.

At this next level I am describing, it is more likely that the universe only expands or collapses when it meets some sort of infinite requirement, or else through quantum flux of some type.
That's my two cents.

Does Everyone Have Perfect Intelligence or Knowledge? (Via Quora)


My view as a dimensional philosopher and psychologizer is that each person is an expert about themselves. Some of these experts are willing experts, and some are unwilling. Thus, there is a lot of denial and confusion.

Suffice to say, some have more knowledge on certain subjects, and some have more potential in the future or the past.

Those that do not seek the good things do not achieve them unless they have done so before.

Thus, there is a drive for new things and for vanity which resists death.

Some of the most unconscious, un-admitted ideas are also the most powerful.

Thus, some of the most knowledgeable people are people that simply have a basic understanding of energy and an ability to apply themselves.

On the other hand, someone with unconscious knowledge might sometimes be ahead of the game. They might have a secret which grants them access to some preferred thing which others are incapable of acknowledging.

Thus, things pass into the future, or develop timelessly through returning reflection.

The problem with knowledgeable people tends to be that they make assumptions about how things work, and then they are always open to challenges from those who are more original, energetic, or far-seeing.

However, boring as it may be, knowledge is knowledge, and there is something to be said for being able to put things into words, or having a better foundation within existing theories.

Creativity, psychic powers, and intuition appear to be the major contenders if we don't take established intelligence seriously. And, sometimes hard work.

Many people are confused, but most have some understanding of their own condition, or else the relevance of conditions outside of themselves. In this way, people can bargain with their knowledge.

It becomes a trial of passage to stop bargaining, and actually believe something. And, if communicating beliefs means losing knowledge because the expresssion in some way denies the facts, glossing over the core 'being' and 'existence' of the matter, then there is a balance between communicating and not-communicating that establishes a barrier to understanding.

Perhaps honesty is the core problem with knowledge. But there are also other problems involving the limitation of the senses and the capacity to communicate or preserve ideas. For example, if knowledge depends on understanding of medieval Coptic language, I doubt there would be very many who understand! And yet, that is the kind of realization an immortal could make, not realizing perhaps that that insight itself may appear trivial in another 2000 years.

So much is bound up in history, and yet empty of communication. What we find significant is unfortunately just that which we find in front of ourselves. For reasons like this, we must understand that there are rare intellects that have significantly greater understanding.

Life grows in incremental steps, and we often don't realize how different other people are from ourselves! Just consider, someone needed to have understanding to make every individual type of accomplishment! Or, one must conclude that the whole project is empty! Or, maybe there are isolated islands called 'systems' that preserve what may be called rationality!

A Miniature Treatise on Experimental Metaphysics

Experimental, Descriptive, Metaphysical Typology

Perhaps this shows the evolution of the cosmos. Philosophers seem to be the only ones to grasp beyond the first level. At least, I worry about most other people---if they don't express it in writing, they might not grasp it, goes the theory. Or they might consider it unthinkable.


Trivial world:

2. Relevant answer: Yes, I’m physical, and
perhaps as a result of this, spiritual too.
3. What is reality: The universe and its interpretation.
4. What is an advanced theory? Mathematics, or
practical wisdom.

[insert end of the world here (but save Nathan and his friends)]

Realistic world:
1. Relevant question: What would reality mean?
2. Relevant answer: Appearance or authenticity.
3. What is reality: The sum of all senses, illusions,
truths, and problems.
4. What is an advanced theory? Whatever qualifies

3. What is reality: Entities with qualities, systems, and
dynamics.
4. What is an advanced theory?: Whatever serves an
advanced paradigm.

Ideal world:
1. Relevant question: What is functionality and truth?
2. Relevant answer: Truth is the origin. Functionality is

Perpetual Motion Stock Market Predictions #13

16,346.45 Down 167.65(1.02%)

You may notice that none of the following is unlucky.

Investors are thinking too much about gold. Meanwhile, the bots have noticed the $100 bill on my wall, and treated it as worth an extra 100 points. Otherwise, the pattern would be 2, 4, 6, 1/2 * 8, 1/2 * 10, meaning (in my irrational language) that the bots think you should focus on the small stuff (like gold), even though everything that affects the market is big stuff.

I would suggest (to the bots) continue to value Nathan Coppedge, but remember other people too, like the big CEOs and investment bankers, and how much money they have. Maybe do something clever with currency markets, if there is such a thing. Like introducing profitable controls that in turn fund infrastructure. And sometimes infrastructure means creative education and intellectual resources, like innovations.

My guess is that (very surprisingly) the bots are overvaluing artificial innovation, and not stressing a few small ideas as much as it should. Ideas and information that have qualities for people get certain types of actionable results. Maybe we would be living in paradise right now. That's what we should think with the biggest economy in history. What would make paradise more tangible and profitable? That's my 'kickstarter' for now. Not enough is being done with creative language, young people, and platforms. We want something interactive that involves ideas. That corporations can turn into products and INVESTMENTS.

Ask CEOs what they want. Ask the highly educated. Provide sandboxes at every level.

And, if you find it humorous, look at my recent post showing the faces of the 'Three Brothers' of greed / Perpetual Motion Greedy Face. Maybe this is the fancy logo of the 18,000s. Sometimes imagination pays off, but not if it harms humans.


This may be fanciful, but I may have invented poverty in a previous life, adopting that name as a way of becoming master of what I took to be limited circumstances. There are so many overlooked gods, from the standpoint of epiphany...

MY FIRST WORDS

1-years-old. "Coming of age. Combing of age." These were my first words.

I remember waiting a long time and being careful to practice nonsense sounds in private before performing this feat. Even if they were not my first intelligible sounds, they were my first attempt to make an intelligible expression. That’s what I understood ‘first words’ meant.

The thought contained in the expression represents my growing interest in being wise long before I died, as well as my attempt to find a meaning for mathematics, something I struggled to do long after this point, well after my teens.

I must have been at least 1 year and three months old, and perhaps as old as two years and one day, as this thought occurred at a time somewhat before my brother was born (in other words between the age of the beginning of my mother’s pregnancy with Brian and when he was born, when I was two years and two days old).

The above is recorded in the not-yet-published Theories of My Youth, which is now about 42 pages long.

HOW TO DO MATHEMATICS WITHOUT DOING MATHEMATICS


Predicate calculus can be pretty limiting.

Take everything you know (maybe infinity), and think again!

Forms of Deduction Based On An Introduction to Higher Order Logic

(J. Lambek and P.J. Scott. Introduction to Higher Order Categorical Logic. Cambridge: Cambridge U, 1986.)

An introductory manual dating from 1986 suggests A can be derived from B in certain cases in which a bounded coordinate system is used.

The text suggests that one of the key importances of the method is to derive the significance of pi in terms of phi (typical mathematical explanations).

This points towards an at least three-part method of deduction based on mathematics, expressly:

1. Relative identity to pi.
2. Phi translation of pi (formal equivalence).
and,
3. Modular equivalences between phi and pi.

However, irrational numbers are not what we need with universal knowledge, so I'm afraid these people must be secretly stuck on a 'Kantian boat'!

I argue that the relation to irrational numbers is arbitrary except when 'pi' is translated to mean 'coherence', since irrational numbers lead to a problem with trans-finite boundaries. Thus, the number-relation has no definite significance except modularly.

In terms of coherency theory, the 'three deductions' mentioned above may be expressed as:

1. Relative absoluteness (qualified and quantifiable nominalism).
2. Formal equivalence again.
and,
3. Philosophically-systematic variations of geometry.

There is no indication that math grants these deductions to be exclusive.

In fact, doubt could even be thrown on whether deductions of such a simple form are deductions in the first place.

Therefore, it seems justified to limit the importance ascribed to this earlier text in establishing methodological coherence, even while at the same time the authors do appear to grasp some of the fundamental workings of a coherent system.

In the context of this work, it appears that the philosophical importance of the methods has been ignored in favor of a mathematical explanation.

But it is significant that the authors held that B could be derived from A in such a way where B ^ 2 = A. This equation is functional for square Bounded Cartesian Coordinates in which it is assumed that A refers to  the total number of categories, and B refers to the number of deductions.

However, it is unclear whether this is what the authors intended, for although the context relates to closed cartesian coordinates, the context is also most directly related to graph theory and Hilbert Spaces.

The philosophy application could obviously look simpler, but it also looks to me to be more relevant to higher order categorical logic.

COLLECTED METHODS OF DIETING


By Nathan Coppedge











Those who have frequented my blog enough may recognize that I occasionally
post very interesting materials on dieting.

One of these methods is the Buddha Diet, another is the Wizard Diet.

And there are several others.

Here, I am going to collect them for you, with some additions.

This will allow you to pick and choose, if you have a weight problem.


I. The Valedictorian Diet

One dieting method I have not mentioned yet is a snatch of a method mentioned by
the Valedictorian of my high school class.

The part I remember is that she cautioned that someone should choose between
sugar and fat first. But one should eat a lot of carbs like bread and rice.
The carbs allow one's body to metabolize the other thing, but the body is
not capable (usually) of metabolizing both fat and sugar.
Other than that, she said, do the usual, exercise. And avoid unhealthy foods.

II. Assorted 'Magical' Tips

1. I have noticed that it helps to focus on clearing out toxic fluids when
urinating. There is a particular organ, the pancreas perhaps, that collects
toxic fluids from the body. And, if you don't urinate properly, these fluids
are not cleared out. Incidentally, when I started concentrating on clearing
out negative fluids when urinating, this seemed to contribute to weight loss,
presumably because the body was no longer distracted with processing
bad and harmful chemicals.

2. Eating Turmeric ('yellow root' powder) can aid with digestion, and therefore
improve metabolism. This also helped me.

3. Certain types of stretches (what I call humorously my 'Secret Exercises')
burn a lot of calories with minimal exertion. One of these in particular is
leg rolls. Another is similar to 'doing the limbo' (if you can, it strengthens
your stomach and burns a lot of calories in the process).


III. The Magical, Philosophical, or 'Buddha' Diet

The Buddha is known to have died by over-eating pork. At other times, he ate little or nothing. This seems to show a magical view of food. In a similar view, one might eat a few delicacies (nutty chocolate or pudding, perhaps), instead of meat and potatoes. But what are the dangers of this view? For one thing, it might sometimes lead to a less healthy diet. But, on the other hand, because of the ‘magical diet’ mentality, it might lead to less food consumed overall. The answer is to have enjoyable alternatives to plain fruit and nuts and milk, while also continuing not to over-consume. When it becomes obvious that over consuming chocolate is not a good idea, a small amount of exercise and some exotic fruits might compensate for the chocolate that was consumed. Fruits like sweetened cranberries (‘Craisins’) can supplement for candy. Chocolate milk can be used to replace soft drinks. A diet high in carbohydrates can help cut back on sugar and meat consumption. The magical diet involves two primary aspects: eating only special foods, and not eating a large amount of them. Then add a third part, which is being more discerning about your diet.


IV. 'Metabolic' Diet

1. Procedure: Coming up with lists of healthy regimens, such as vegetarianism, dieting, and exercise has a limited benefit that begins the cycle towards better health.
2. ‘Comfort’ Methods: Extreme mental control of biological functions in a relaxed and informed way can lead to positive metabolic changes.
3. Atavistic Adaptation: This is an inevitable stage if one is to remain thin and mentally alert. However, if used incorrectly, it can lead to stress or drug dependencies. Drugs are not involved. Just an extreme mental process.
4. Enlightened Problem-Solving: Also called metaphorically, ‘picking bullets from the air’, this involves extreme insight about the state of the universe and how to respond.

V. Longevity Diet

All in all, the effect is rather profound, if enacted properly, that is, holistically.
A strategy can be found. For example:
1. If you have traveled far through life, say, 20 - 65 years since you made the commitment to immortality, then remind yourself of your own skyhigh ambition for immortality, and all that this originally meant. This can have an effect when ordinary things like exercise and dieting do not.
2. If your exercise and dieting is not working perfectly, but having some effect, then try counteracting some of the negativity through physical or spiritual negation. This may involve choosing special healthy foods such as broccoli (famously), turmeric, or a longevity supplement. Or it may involve spiritual choices such as having a ‘dieting mentality’ or thinking more positively about life. Positivity is known to have caused radical changes in a short time for some people.
3. If the only problem is that you don’t feel quite well, although you have no major reason to worry about your physical health, then the answer may be to exert yourself a little more. A little activity can get your brain moving in a better direction.
4. If you are just starting to focus on longevity, an important move may be to focus on your location on every level of existence. This is similar to what Socrates called ‘knowing thyself’. It is also similar to the Eastern concept of Feng Shui (roughly meaning ‘proper alignment’), which is supposed to govern things ranging from physical and mental health to beauty and wealth. This ‘locatedness’ will help you come to terms with your own limitations, and your own potential for growth.


VI. The Justice or Wizard Diet

This is the toughest diet I've ever thought of,

But it is worth reporting since I already mentioned the Magical Diet or Buddha diet earlier.

In the Justice Diet you need a lot of knowledge, so you know what to eat.

Everything (often very few things) is / are selected at a given time.

The point is, what is selected is just the right thing for your health in-the-moment.

This is good for people that have already done significant dieting, but want to go further.

You may take as a model, eating half of a pear, because you think there's something wrong with pears.

However slight, there might be something wrong with it!

For example, there are people practicing yoga or kosher who will avoid food that is even slightly rotten
or mushy. This is a reason to avoid all but the most fresh and high-quality foods.

Another thing is that a diet high in sugar can be replaced with a diet that supplements sugary
beverages with a solid food product that is more interesting, but contains no sugar, or replaced with
a diet high in carbohydrates without sugar.

So, if you are eating a lot of sugary beverages (as many dieters do), or trying to find a way to remain
off of meat products, this may be a good diet to follow.

Simply consider choices like almonds and water instead of chocolate milk, and half a pear instead
of an expensive meal.

This is the kind of thinking that can get you pointed in a good direction!

And, supplement with Turmeric! Drink the freshest water whenever possible! Aqua pura! Not Purafina!

THE LAST WORD ON THE 'COPPEDGE CURVE'

Perhaps this is the beginning and end of the Coppedge curve, a conversation my high school math teacher had with another student years ago.

Mr. Romao said: "Coppedge is not quicker than you, he's just smarter. We call that being a philosopher."

Student: "Is that your mathematical opinion?"

Romao: "It's not a mathematical opinion, it's just a fact."

Student: "You stated that sort of imperatively."

Romao (smiling): "Imperatively or not... It's just a fact. Take my word for it if you have to."

The secret implication seemed to be that I wasn't smarter at math, I was just smarter at 'whatever-it-is'.

THE 4 SPIRITUAL LEVELS


1. What one understands is that things appear as they appear. You can add depth. Concretism.

2. It can be spiritually transcendent for things not to appear as they appear. The insight of functional chemistry.

3. What appears within the illusion may be more real, and one can negotiate with it. The 'level of devils.'

4. Reality itself is obscure, and functionality is common. The land of abversion. The land of gods.

THE MOST COMMON JUDGMENTS: ANTHROPOGYNY AND THEOGYNY


The HUMAN way:

First, they think it is easy (stupidity).

Then they think it is hard (frustration).

Then they think it needs an expert (error).

Then they think it is spiritual (something good or bad).


The DIVINE way:

First, they think it requires difficulty (king's food).

Then, they think it is spiritual (good from good, bad from bad).

Then, they think it requires judgment (eternity).

Then, they think it is a matter of some principle (time, energy, strength, wisdom, love).

THE BEST INFORMATION ABOUT THE BESSLER WHEEL

So far, Visual Education Project appears to be the only representation of someonene
constructing an accurate model of the original device.

HERE is their rendition, sort of convincing.


THE BEST INFORMATION ABOUT THE HOJO MOTOR

This comes from personal experience.

Someone I knew had arranged to install the Hojo Motor.

When the guy came to install it, the person who hired him said:

"I know what you're doing with the electric lines is illegal, because you're taking too long".

The guy was like:

"So, do you want me to install it?"

Everyone got angry, but that was the end of it.

He said no. Because it was obviously illegally tapping the electric lines.

LINK to a video I have been advertising, or better yet, the actual movie!



Ostensibly a real over-unity device of sorts (not sure yet, since I have so many critics at Revolution-Green). Anyway, it's not a perpetual motion machine as I was well aware of, but my critics don't believe me that it moves upwards on its own for some reason...! It's not faked, unless they're right that my thumb is causing the leftwards motion (which I think, it isn't), or unless the level is totally off (even they wouldn't criticize the level this time).

The device uses the K'Nex construction toy (the Ferris Wheel set, although other smaller sets might do), and a small leveling tool (called a level).

ANSWER TO THE QUESTION "WHY WAS MAGIC BANISHED IN THIS REALM?"

NATHAN COPPEDGE VIA QUORA

It's not so much that it was banished, as that it requires great skill.

Perhaps the reason a high standard is held is because otherwise some pretty dangerous things would happen, like accidental explosions and permanent craziness.

Many people seem to lack a base of knowledge for magical ability. It can't happen by accident, like it would happen for these people. It can't happen by luck.

Another explanation is that some people are somehow unconscious, or too primitive in consciousness to even understand the effects of magic. In that case, magic doesn't happen because it is too much of a privilege to matter to most people. It requires a high degree of consciousness in other words, and humans are still sort of like animals.

The biological explanation is that humans are animals, so in the magical realm you have to exhibit the properties of a god. In that case, illusions are possible but not real, and not easy. Real magic is very hard, sort of like randomly teleporting by accident. Almost impossible. I disagree, though, but that doesn't mean I'm ordinary by saying this.

Even if life is not perfect, we can at least reason that if anyone has control, they're doing their best relative to their own evil (or good).

And, by the way, 'BANISH' is a highly technical word to use for such a general subject. A philosopher like me would rather ask, 'WHY DOESN'T MAGIC EXIST' and if it turns out that it does, then --> 'END OF PROBLEM'.

Difficulty could be explained for any number of reasons. It could even be the result of some advanced beings very specialized mistake, bargaining with laws or something like that. We're supposed to forgive everyone a little bit, so they think it applies to them too. But that doesn't mean they should be punished. It just means there should be more adequate laws. Laws that allow magic and guarantee everyone's safety.

Like the rule of subjective isometric levitation, for example. But this requires making sure that people aren't eating each other, etc.

There may be some basic problems to solve, and part of the problem may be that someone is enamored with puzzles to begin with, before the rules are even defined.

One further explanation is to fault the education process, or fault automatic answers. At that point, it becomes pretty difficult to refute.

But, if everyone voted for paradise for a certain amount of time, and is willing to make reasonable compromises, then after a certain amount of time, all problems should be solved, no matter what. So, the higher powers must be evil, or they must be foolishly justifying some specific set of reasons, in spite of all real compromises.

Perhaps the real powers lost their power, and this world is what we are left with.

We aren't necessarily aware of the worst problems that have happened to anybody. Some of the great powers may think they have a bigger problem than we do. Or not. And it depends on that. So when knowledge is denied, we lose everything (potentially, and actually with an arbitrary gradual process like education).

"It is clear enough that what Kant meant by transcendent was that something

by empirically extended things was applications given  by extended
space or energy that does not belong distinctly to consciousness,

---Nathan Coppedge, Response to G.E. Moore's defense of 'things exist in space'.


"Logical atomism in the sense that Bertrand Russell meant it, was the density
of symbols, what I now call 'complexity'. This concept immediately
pre-figures the physical concept of black holes."

---Nathan Coppedge, Reaction to Bertrand Russell's Lecture on Logical Atomism.


"For every x = y, contrary to modern philosophers such as Putnam, it is not
necessary that x = y, because there could be some specialized property that
serves as evidence of a growing contradiction (relativistic semantics in
Einstein's sense). For example, x = y does not always implicate x = y, only
x = y under some condition. Therefore, there is nothing absolute about
x = y. The only absolute is absolute (x, y, z, etc.) or absolute x ~= y
(an unambiguous relation called an entity, a measurable non-relation called
a difference, an ambiguous degree called an application, or a condition of
absoluteness in which absoluteness can be unambiguously measured, such as
by containment, infinity, typology, or realism)."

---Nathan Coppedge, Reaction to Kripke's Identity and Necessity.


"Can a similar identity be different in an otherwise identical world illustrates determinism? No, because differences are determined by the will... There may be no difference between reason and the will, if the will can be determined, and will may be more significant at times than a given person's potential for reason..."

---Nathan Coppedge, tangent on Hilary Putnam's Meaning and Reference
(Putnam is a man BTW. Really. Check Wikipedia).


"People say I.Q. is paradise. But the corollary is disillusionment. With this insight, I could hypothesize that I was a brain-in-a-vat, beginning in the 1980's. My father, too, might be a brain in a vat. With this kind of interpretation, the first level is metaphysics."

The Greediest Perpetual Motion Face




































This was the humorous inspiration for another local artist's idea of the greedy perpetual motion cartoons...

He may have moved out of town since then... Or not...

Don't see him very much anymore...

Anyway, people called him 'Guy Kid' I think...

That's what he said...

I don't remember if that was close to his real name...

"You have to get the face right... It's the greediest face!"

That's what I remember from the conversation (me talking).

And I admired his artwork.

CURE FOR HICCUPS


Repeat the following line in your mind until you believe it:

"I have many four-leafed clovers and I keep them with me always."

Practice careful breathing mastery.

Insert a small gust of fomentation at the right time when you are nearly finished with masterful breathing.

Worked for me!

Similar to advice given by the Valedictorian of my high school class, that the secret was

"to get pregnant / but not
literally / I hate to say that
/ it's really like getting pregnant
/ I insist".

QUALIFACTICS by Nathan Coppedge

A development of qualifics.

Qualifics is the science of qualities.

Qualifactics is the application of the science of qualities to fields like medicine and engineering.

Specifically, it is the ability to evoke a particular empirical pattern through qualities, such as visual and textual descriptions.

The descriptions can then be used as logical atoms of the existence of the larger state-of-affairs.

Some of these states of affairs are positive, some are negative, and some are neutral, semantic, logical, systematic, existential, etc.

In the case of negatives, the role of qualifactics is to diagnose the problem.

When the empirical facts relating to the qualifact (description) are present, then this means that if the term is negative, a problem remains.

Removing the relevance of the qualifact has the effect of removing at least some aspect of the problem.

In the case of negative qualifacts,  one of the major tools is Denial.

Denying the properties of the qualifact will have the effect of simplifying how to eliminate the overall, more specific problem which relates or depends upon the qualifact.

The use of qualifacts can be analogized with experimental science.

In this case, the CONTROL is the body of theory about the existence of a problem, including NULL HYPOTHESIS about the relevance of a problem.

The INDEPENDENT is the set of specific properties which could hypothetically relate with the problem. This may include such things as medical or other specialized knowledge. These constitute a component of the qualifact, specifically the part that can inflect or deflect a problem.

The DEPENDENT VARIABLE is the exact arrangement of facts within the qualifact (overall fact of the problem), such that a problem is observed to emerge.

In its best applications, the set of independents is such that the emergent dependent variables are unpredictable, and thus highly qualifying of a problem.

In other cases, in which the qualifact is not problematic, the qualification instead involves other major interpretations, such as efficiency, evolution, complexity, or beauty.

We might interpret inflections that relate to the subject of quadriplegics.

The expression “Grollier’s Number” may be said to relate to this.

As could the expression “Eforeseed”.

And, the name “Clerence Thomas” spelled with an ‘e’ instead of an ‘a’ in the first vowel of the first name.

In each case, for various historical or psychological reasons, these expressions are what evokes quadriplegism. If these are the expressions that evoke quadriplegism, then either the intuition is wrong, or these are the things that signify that disease or disability.

Although this type of study might have a reputation for superstition, the emphasis is on pruning out the very best examples of trivial-or-better relation. The best examples look psychic, but in fact they rest on a firm foundation of knowledge. One of the evidences for this is that qualifactics does not depend on any occult systems like horoscopes or numerology.

It is important to keep in mind that specific qualifact statements may have multiple contingencies of assessment, meaning that just because it makes sense in one set of formal assumptions does not mean that its importance is universal.

Specifically, negative qualifactics may be seen as relating to symptomology specifically (such as its historical importance as influencing its chance of emersion), rather than the definable character of the phenomenon itself. Instead, the phenomenon itself is delegated by conventional medical prognosis, psychology, biology, etc.

Thus, the tool is really a highly specialized addition to a variety of disciplines dealing with such subjects as prognosis, assessment, standards, and development.

PROGRESSIVE VIEW OF METAPHYSICAL DISEASES

A kind of pyramid is possible, in which the second and third disease cannot be had without curing the first, and the 4th, 5th, and 6th cannot be had without meta-curing the 2nd and 3rd, and so on, in successive levels, each including one additional component. The iteration of the method of altering previous levels suggests that by terms of the current reality, the path is somewhat infinite. Yet, with dimensional potential, the path my be gained more quickly, and the lessons learned.

1. Death.
2. Immortality.
3. Genius.

4. Art.
5. Transformation.
6. Mystery.


The first level (1) is the level of struggle to understand pleasure and pain and find higher purpose. The second level (2 and 3) is about disillusionment and self-directed purpose. The goal of the second level is not to despair, and not to fall for temptations. The third level (4, 5, and 6) involves the fifth dimension, and so it is hard to interpret. What may be seen in the third level is a paradigmatic path of reality, with greater certainty and enjoyment of various wonders and superficial, mysterious, or amusing obstacles.

NEW RELEASE: Dimensional Artist's Toolkit

BOOK DESCRIPTION

In this original book, the author (an abstract artist) demonstrates what he calls the ‘many-folded forms’ of artistic expression. Art cannot be outdone as a symbol both for variation and for the transcendental. Art represents not only ‘power’ and ‘motion,’ but every type of genius. The author believes that genius can be taught, and introduces guidance on many aspects of aesthetics.  Included are numerous illustrations demonstrating many aesthetic techniques. This work is a propo in that it extends the functions and models of the contemporary artist. This, the fifth volume of the encyclopedia is devoted to aesthetics out of a profound deference to its underlying importance in a wide variety of disciplines. In particular, this text introduces a variety of techniques for creating Hyper-Cubism, a form of art that the author calls ‘the next iteration of Cubism’. This book is an exciting opportunity that will please the aesthetic connoisseur.
