New Release! An Arrogant History of the Western University!



Here is a very Avant-Garde, almost Metamodern, Alternate History take on what is important in Western culture. Each volume comes in four parts. In this history, which attempts arrogantly to explain what is important in a university, the sections are: 1) How To Build a 100-Dimensional Universe, 2) Delineation of Math Education, 3) How To Be Smart, and last but not least, 4) Socrates On Ethics by Coppedge. The longest section is How To Be Smart, which includes sections on Calculus, Medicine, Physics, and other subjects, from the standpoint of a dimensionist philosopher. Worthwhile reading, in the author's opinion!

41 and 35 views over two days at my websites!

This is some of the biggest traffic I have received in a long time to my websites.

This always strikes me as a good sign of interest in my extensive works.

With luck, it will create more interest in artwork, perpetual motion machines, and my large collection of published books.

I also hope it brings more positive press on the subject of Nathan Coppedge, philosopher, artist, inventor poet.

Perhaps someone taking interest in perpetual motion, belatedly for the first time!

Quotes July 2017

"The weak soul --- At that level, the body is the soul, but it does not count as a soul with weight. The Soul of the Common Man — can bring a weight upon small minds... The Soul of the Uncommon Man — is rumored to weigh as much as a spec of dust. The Genius soul —is worth it’s weight in gold... I have found a small blood-and-wax figure naturally formed in my ear which appeared shaped like the face of a little (genius)... The Gnostic Soul — The weight is judged in heaven with trickery. ... The safeguard is to be more tricky... and to become enslaved to the spirit. The Soul of the Magi — The magi are people authentic enough to have classic souls, and what this seems to involve is the power of the soul, to direct it into objects or places... phusis or psyche or noos... the soul may be able to ever-so-carefully acquire the weight of the vessel that contains it. An appropriate vessel might be one way to have a powerful soul in this case... as V. says ... the soul is only as strong as the vessel that keeps it. Which is meant as a reference to being a vampire immortal or wight... The Immortal Soul —With difficulty, one acquires a magic nature, and this is when the soul begins to physically grow. It is relatively rare... Not everyone would agree that it could become immortal. But so long as we are debating the strength of the soul we are in trouble... because we then seem to oppose its natural growth." --- Nathan Coppedge, The Weight of the Soul

"There is a house, surrounded by a garden. 'The trees look so ornate'. 'Ooh, I think I saw a tarantula!' The children chase it around, and eventually it escapes the wall of the garden. Lemonade is poured. What a significant moment!" ---Nathan Coppedge, The Story of the World Part 2
"Around the time of the Library Alexandria, Dark Ages, and Early Medieval period, people decided that lack of knowledge at the end of life was excessively cruel." ---Errata Erratum, on the history of cruel punishments, Nathan Coppedge

"Holiness does not take lives. Then, maybe they are in their first life, if it does not ‘take lives’ to get there!" ---Nathan Coppedge

"There are multiple perspectives, but this ignores the fact that there are multiple types of knowledge." ---Nathan Coppedge

"The flaky skin really may have been a strategy to get rid of pimples. In that way, I'm a wizard." ---Nathan Coppedge

"We are goodie to see… Goodie to heart one… And goodie to be… We are goodie! We are, we are goodie-goodie. This is, this is reality-reality. Heart ones good ones like ones love ones — we are good ones… hopefully like ones. We are all treasure trove ones good ones. Love is sublime one divine one. I love my good ones. My good ones are the future of reality. We can do everything. We can do everything at-the-goodie. We can do everything we see is goodie. What is good to do is good to be is how-at-we. How-at-we one good one! How much it is goodie! Economic goodies. Economic wowwies! We are, we are wowwie-wowwie! May we always be goodie-goodie! And so-at-one wowwie one good one! Perfect reality is worth living-living! Divine art life will bring, will bring! Totally am-a-zing, am-a-zing!" ---Nathan Coppedge, Cutism, July 2017

"There's an image of the inventor as some great laborer, while he is really one to want to solve the world's problems in one big flash of lightning." ---Nathan Coppedge

"If you have to believe everyone is being dishonest, chances are you're wrong." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Optimism and pessimism: They are philosophies, one good and the other evil." ---Nathan Coppedge

"As dimensions increase, the difference between dimensions gets smaller and smaller, even while complexity steadily increases." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Analytic depression is a bad idea, and should be avoidable. Then again, its surrogate underestimated genius should not either be ignored." ---Nathan Coppedge

Sunday July 2nd I had a small disaster

I lost most of my private work since January.

Some of the things that were lost:

* 20 pages of The Dimensional Physics Toolkit.
* 2 or 3 recent entries in An Enchanter's Journal on the use of the soul for magic.
*A large part of Nathan's Proverbs / Parables.
*Countless small additions to other works.
*Any recent unpublished book projects.

Truly sad.

The saddest thing is I feel almost completely selfless about it. I haven't cried at all.

Fortunately my websites were recovered and the majority of my recent writings were made on Quora.

Update: The two missing parables on The Time-Traveler and Ethical Knowledge may have been recovered from Quora.
