Two Planets

Two PlanetsWell, yeah, two planets met somewhere at the edge of the universe.

«Hi!» said the first.

«Hi…» – «Hm, you look sick. Everything ok?»

«I’ve got humans.» – «Oh, that’s really disgusting.»

«For a short time they were really itchy !»

«So don’t worry, that bodes well» said the second, encouragingly, «it’ll be over in no time then…!»

Got it from this Blogs comments (german).

Dream about Iran

(or about any other big crude oil deliverer)

Close your eyes (well, after reading) and imagine the following.

Sweet Mullah in chief would state:

  • We have no nuclear material to build weapons – come and see.
  • We have no plants to make poison gas – come and see.
  • We even have no missiles to transport such things – come and see.
  • We don’t treat our opposition like lifestock – come and see.
  • We respect human rights – come and see.
  • Everyone has one vote, everyone can campaign – come and see.
  • We’d like to be your host – come and test us.
  • And, finally, we’ll sell you our oil in Euros – come and buy!
  • (tell me some more ideas…)

This could change so many things. It would probably be good for European economics. Probably, many other countries would jump on the bandwagon. Surely, it would be bad for the American economy.

America would not be able to find a real reason for an attack to prevent this. Maybe it would fudge an excuse, but nobody would believe it. The ruler ruled out by his own rules!

But, hold on, what’s the saying? Kick an old dog long enough and it will turn around and bite. Also, what about power vacuum? How many inferiority-complex addled people will fill buckets with their drivel? If physics are to be trusted, gallons of the stuff will drool into place.

Then only holy metaphysics can repeal the laws, but on this score all the mystics men and women sucked, till today. Damn, I’m glad I don’t have to make the rules…

Well, yeah – open your eyes, a dream comes back to reality.

Any suggestions to dream on?

Der Spekulant

(sorry, all german)

Eine sehr interessante Arbeit habe ich auf www.derspekulant.info gefunden. Wer schon immer mal wissen wollte,

  • wie es sich verhält, wenn Gott ein Auto wäre und ein Mystiker, ein Wissenschaftler, ein Priester und ein Skeptiker darin Platz nehmen, oder
  • wie lange ein Affe auf einer Schreibmaschine tippen muss, bis der erste Einzeller entsteht, oder
  • wie die Evolution sich verhält, wenn Sony die Firma „Leben“ und der Mensch ihr Walk Man wäre,

sollte sich unbedingt die Zeit nehmen, diese Arbeit zu lesen.

Der Spekulant nähert sich auf unterhaltsame Weise in einfacher Sprache und simpler Logik dem Sinn des Lebens.

Viel Spass beim Lesen!

Generalisierte Quantentheorie / Weak quantum theory

(English readers please click on continue and scroll down)

Mein erster Post in deutsch. Soeben fand ich einen neuen Helden: Prof. Dr. Dr. Harald Walach! Er bringt meine Gedanken so schön auf den Punkt, dass ich besser den Mund halte 🙂 .

Hier ein paar Schmankerl, den ganzen Text findet ihr hier auf http://www.psychophysik.com. Viel Inspiration bei dieser spannenden Lektüre! Interessant ist auch die Einleitung dazu.

«Man geht mit theoretischen Konstrukten – „Geister“, „Energien“, „Engel“, „Dämonen“, „previous lives“, „transpersonaler Raum“, „absoluter Geist“ – im transpersonalen Kontext am besten sparsam um. … Damit ist gemeint, dass man den damit gemeinten Sachverhalten eine Art Eigenexistenz zuzubilligen geneigt ist, wenn sie erst einmal genannt ist, …»

«Das heisst aber nun nicht, dass man die Erfahrung deswegen verleugnen muss. Letzteres ist ein Trugschluss, der von der konventionellen Wissenschaft häufig gemacht wird, indem sie Ockhams Rasiermesser radikal anwendet und sich gewissermassen nicht nur rasiert, sondern dem entsprechenden Phänomen gleich den Hals abschneidet und es damit für irrelevant erklärt. Nein, Ockhams Rasiermesser hat ein komplementäres Gegengewicht: Platons Rettungsboot. Dieses von mir so titulierte Prinzip leitet sich aus dem platonischen Wort von der „Rettung der Phänomene“ ab (Walach & Schmidt, 2002). Dieses methodische Prinzip stammt aus der platonisch-astronomischen Schule und meint, eine astronomische Theorie müsste die Himmelsphänomene erklären können und nicht umgekehrt, dass Phänomene einer Theorie untergeordnet werden.»

A sign of realism

industry and greenhouse gasesEuropean heads of government agreed to get onward with climate protection. The ambition is to reduce one fifth of greenhouse gases from 1990 by 2020. (!)

In fact, this is not ambitious enough by far. But I see the fact that they are in consent about the need of such steps, even if very tardily. It seems they started to think about our future.

But about which ways to take there are the old inconsistencies. Is nuclear power renewable? Brave Angela Merkel (German President of the European Council at this time) stood tall and argued against this viewpoint. Big applause, please!

France and others won’t be happy with this. And in question is how earnest this statement will be realised. If I take a look at how far we are with the Kyoto-protocol. Still, the insight is here, and if it’s only for popularity. But the end justifies the means, when it results in clear decisions.

Hear I someone say «dream on» 🙂 ? As John Lennon said: I’m not the only one.

Maybe we should put some stuff in Brussels drinking water – it might teach the politicians to dream even further. If they sense life in the next tree they see; it could be inspiring.

Back to realism again I suggest you make sure with your vote, that some realistic and idealistic dreamers take place in the houses of governments – this is how dreams come true, isn’t it?

Difference between Lemmings and market operators

This I just asked myself. All they run after each other, no one knows who is leader and where the trip is going. Just because someone in Shanghai made a wrong deal they loose somewhat 3 % worldwide at the stock market. Together they bloat a big balloon and everyone fears, it could burst – but nobody stops pumping. Nobody wants to be stupid and loose a chance to betray money without work.

If you look at it globally, in a wide range, stock market is somehow social: Either all win or all will loose. What an insight – all neo-liberal market operators are in fact damned communists! The Sowjet Union ain’t dead yet.

I mean, seriously, it seems money can be a turn on, but it has no biological life and cannot increase itself. If you made win on a stock, someone must have sweat for it.

It’s easy to make wrong deals with stolen money, besides of an impending heart attack. But it’s the dog biting in its own tail. Maybe it should bite the balloon. The big bang could be a chance for a new, better start.
