Wokism Is Fake, And That’s Why It’s Useful To The Establishment

July 1, 2022

What is the point of university? It used to be, when Harvard was founded in 1636, “to advance learning and perpetuate it to posterity”. But in recent years the university has taken on an altogether narrower character. Learning is no longer enough. Activism is demanded. Yale and Harvard have come to resemble the mythical Ouroboros, eating their own tails to satisfy an insatiable appetite for conformity…” Ayaan Hirsi Ali points out. She is a famous Islam critic, who had to flee her native Somalia, was elected Dutch MP, barely escaped assassination by enraged theologians, and is now a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. Her latest book is Prey: Immigration, Islam, and the Erosion of Women’s Rights.

New and better Veritas comes from debate… which originally meant beating thoroughly. So one cannot throw a light, lux, let alone establish veritas without a modicum of mental violence. New and better truth is always an aggression against the established mental… let alone financial or economic… order. This is why, historically speaking, most of humanity’s top thinkers blossomed in only a few places and times… And yet found themselves to be the object of violence, often fatal, at a rate much greater than the average population.

New truth, better veritas, always contradict the established order, this is what deep and genuine novelty does to minds

Instead, plutocratic universities, aka legacies universities, teach the established order, and how to get inserted within. Enough money and effort is deployed by students and, or their families to attend elite universities, so as to ensure that students have the appropriate mentality of, and for, plutocratic insertion. Thus rebellion within is unlikely. Wokism has become a purity test of dedication to the fake truth of the established order. Exhibiting enough wokism demonstrates that one is eager, and one can display enough hypocrisy and polish, to rule the gullible masses… and thus join the master class.

Theories adverse to the established order are adverse to the plutocratic universities’ sponsors, thus will be discouraged by administrators and teaching staff. Whereas theories which make no sense or are deeply regressive are friends of the established order, and will be encouraged. 

This will go on until, and if, the established order is wiped out by a tsunami of veritas… or then total civilizational collapse… something easily engineered with nukes… Harvard did play an important role in establishing Yeltsin’s Russia… which then installed Vlad, modulo a genocidal war in Chechnya… It all fits together nicely.

Wokism is a mood of explaining all what matters most as mostly flowing from racial prejudice and discrimination… Thus hiding deeper causes. Wokism is greatly fake, but so has been the fight against the pollution crisis (in particular the CO2 crisis, aka acidifying global heating), or, for that matter, the taxation schemes which have only ensured ever greater global power and wealth inequality in the hands of the few… A fake and silly universe, such as wokism, will often hide another, much more dangerous, such as increasing feudalism. 




Ayaan Ali got married to historian Niall Ferguson in 2011. He divorced for the occasion his wealthy and powerful long time wife… They have two sons. Ferguson teaches at Harvard and gets $100,000 for one hour speeches to hedge funds… That’s what a book about the Rothschild will do to you, if well written in a way pleasing to the powers that be… Wokism does not like Ferguson for his ideas… And now Ferguson’s own life with Ali shows that Ferguson’s ideas did not emerge from racism… Thus disproving the fundamental thesis of wokism…

Beauty: Vive La Différence!

May 8, 2022

Beauty: Vive La Différence!

A table, simple objects on top, 

Commemorating love fate took away…

We think because we hurt,

Doesn’t matter what, it’s deep and touching,

Made all the difference.

A little glass container,

Small little roses in it: a touch of scarlet color,

Symbolizing how small, yet drastically everything,

That love was.

Volunteers are cleaning

 

A tall fat guy, sure of himself,

Orders to behead it all: this is old, let’s clear it!

He wants to throw away the innocent tiny flowers,

Which depict what used to mean so much!

No, please don’t,

See how pretty, the touch of color

Yes, dessicated, sure, precisely: they will last.

The big guy is sure of himself: no, too old,

Enough scatter brains,

I clean it, and irresistibly,

Down into a garbage pail,

Full of a terrible milky chemical liquid,

He throws them irreversibly, 

A killing of memories left after death.

Death squared.

 

Outrageous

Why can’t all humans enjoy,

Enjoin, and celebrate when hope 

Showing up as tiny, stubborn flowers,

Refuses to die? 

Why the need for Nemesis,

Destroying all in the way,

All that was dear?

 

Why not appreciate how important beauty is?

The brute stands, formidable: this is my job and I do it well,

Destroying hope and beauty,

As needed.

One feels like crying:

There is another sort of humanity there,

An anti-human humanity, and it’s deliberate.

 

Deserts left after beauty is gone,

Those, too, are neat.

Indeed, what’s neater and cleaner than death?

The evil side of humanity,

Puts order into things,

Whether necessary, or not.

 

In these desolate times

When maniacal tyrants 

Know best how many bombs,

Will get the job done, 

To impose themselves,

Maybe at the cost of everything else.

Appreciating beauty is a refuge,

For reason itself.

 

Venerating a few precious flowers

Dessicated or not, a touch of color, a love that was

A love we respect and commemorate

This we need

To remind us

That we humans,

Mostly live by hope,

And beauty

 

So what does a sense of beauty bring?

The difference which protects us,

From fury and nothingness,

Signifying Nothing,

Told by madmen

 

Beauty is what ignores and dominates all,

Luring us with the appreciation of difference,

Or how it all makes sense.

So children, ladies, and gentlemen,

Let’s drink beauty,

While we can,

Because we should,

Try to be human,

As well as we can.

Let love for beauty reign over us.

Patrice Ayme

Beauty makes difference attractive, hence is at the foundation of thinking, the human essence

Want Genius? Get Out Of The Gilded Box Global Plutocrats Designed

October 5, 2020

A PhD in a field X means one has done studies in X, but it also means one has PLEASED A HANDFUL of senior members of the PhD GUILD… One has entered a hierarchy. When I mixed up with the best and brightest, I was struck how hierarchical it all was [1].

The fact that professional intellectuals have to aspire to belong to a guild, to please a hierarchy to get the crumbs that feed them as the pigeons they are has the following consequence: Most great mental advances of humanity are from AMATEURS, OR INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATORS, NOT GUILDERS; it’s a historical fact. The very fact that “amateurs”, people who love a subject are viewed in a pejorative way is itself pretty telling. It is basically saying that working for love is inferior to working for a stipend: the lover is inferior to the prostitute, on matter of (prostitution?) principle. The prostitution principle makes employers the ultimate adjudicators of intellectual worth. And now the ultimate adjudicators are the global plutocrats.

I agree with Nietzsche’s analysis, but I go much deeper: the universal principles the infernal trio of those lovers of each others of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle subscribed to were the universal principles of plutocracy against democracy. Plutocracy is intrinsically for mental fascism: deriving everything from a few principles which serve the owners. Socrates, heir of a small fortune, lived like a whore for wealthier than him. Plato, a gilded youth of Athens, aspired to be the Syracuse tyrant’s boyfriend, and Aristotle, a spawn of the innermost circle of the Macedonian tyrant, was the mastermind of the takeover of the world by his Macedonian students. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, are the evil artisans of the ultimate plutocratic box. The consequences were dramatic: ARISTOTLE DESTROYED DEMOCRACY

Yes, ARISTOTLE DESTROYED DEMOCRACY, by building the box nobody was supposed to get out of [2]

It is true that individuals who, while members of the PhD GUILD do not follow the dogmas of the guild, are described as “fringe” and dangerous radicals, and lower order sorts. I was long around the highest top circles in math-physics and I noticed the very highest (Nobel, Field medal ranks) were less arrogant than the ones below them…  The very top guys (De Broglie, Feynman, Wheeler, etc.) were just the opposite, humble and frank. But very consumed by their narcissistic selves…

The intrinsic nature of genius means one is out of the box: the box is not a genius, it’s a prison: new ideas come always from the outside, not the stampeding herd. So the very definition of genius implies asocial behavior towards the GUILDS. 

This can be seen even in individuals such as ABELARD and BURIDAN, Middle Ages super thinkers who were the equivalent of celebrity rock stars in their times… So they were very famous. Abelard led the war against Saint Bernard, the de facto Pope and a crazed advocate of the 2nd Crusade; two centuries later, Buridan, rector of the world’s most famous university, Paris, advised four kings and was loved by a queen, etc… and also had a gigantic following, including the Oresemes, Oxford computing school… They were very famous but still they rocked the boat… Both fought the power of the church in a way which required extreme courage.

An example of resistance of dogma to significant fact is Dark Matter: the evidence for it is nearly a century old, but it was denied… It is a highly significant fact, as it means, POTENTIALLY, that existing physics is 96% IRRELEVANT. As an amateur of sorts, I found an obvious (?) POTENTIAL solution: a finite Quantum Interaction (there is no Quantum Interaction if CIQ, Copenhagen Interpretation Quantum… But I am sure Newton would agree with me, because he wrote on the subject, famously about gravity).

The problem with the identification of the PhD and UNIVERSITY EMPLOYED GUILD with the top intellectual class is that universities, and “university affiliation” are that universities are all in the employ of the top plutocratic class and its agent, the GLOBAL DEEP STATE… This enables the Global Deep State to establish its worldwide mind control.

An example is so-called “French Theory” an all-encompassing philosophical theory, which has been interpreted as saying that there is nothing as a superior cultural trait. Believing in the superiority of some system of thoughts over others is… racist.

Thus, in particular, claiming that “All Lives Matter” is racist.

Wait… what? Ah, because the founding members of “French Theory”, like the ignorant and, or, biased Claude LéviStrauss (a French anthropologist and ethnologist founder of “French Theory”) believed that the West rose on mayhem, and, implicitly, only mayhem… This has been parroted and amplified ever since, in an avalanche of Black Lies. And Black Lies Matter!

Whereas, in truth, the West rose on… Amateur geniuses… certainly the USA, a colony of Europe, rose on much more mayhem than necessary, but that’s another story.

The Occident arose from the creative destruction of yesteryear’s obsolete spiritual prisons… The history of ideas is the history of jailbreaks.

[2] Abelard, then Buridan, did get out of the Aristotelian box, It was perceived to be so at the time. Peter the Venerable, abbot of all powerful Cluny (by far the largest Christian church at the time) protected Abelard from Saint Bernard. He called Abelard “our Aristotle”.

Voluntary Servitude Not Just From Fear, But Also From Lazy Self Hypnosis Denying One’s Own Culpability

September 10, 2019

Why does propaganda works? Because People want to be propagandized, they want to belong and be owned. As long as they ask to be guided by what’s “in”, they are out as independent minds… And that’s exactly what they want. And the way to get there is collective hypnosis.

In a democracy, everything depends upon the consent of the people” (Thomas Jefferson, 3rd president)… Well, even more so in a dictatorship:

Free, domineering, bold, happy alive:”The Woman Of My Dreams“, Nazi movie, August 1944. (the date is important).. Nazism was exactly about the opposite: caged, subjugated, scared, very sad to be still alive and gnawing on an obsession with death. The other contradiction: this movie was made just as the Great Reich was in full collapse, most of its great cities, smoking rubble, and flying armadas of thousands of Allied bombers bombing Germany while ruling German skies. Thus that movie depicts the world as the opposite of what it was. Nearly all healthy German women who got in touch with a vengeful Soviet army, got to serve hundreds of time a day, come 1945…

What’s the subconscious of a collective? That is the question. However I talked of the support of US plutocracy for fascism in the 1930s with all too many US citizens with world consciousness and they were EXTREMELY HOSTILE to this general approach. Like totally enraged.

[Esteemed reader] Kathleen Hawes Watkins: Maybe it comes down to attribution of conspiracy vs. exploitation. I suspect people are less hostile re opportunistic actions (fate/luck) than conspiring acts (intended/evil). So until they see evidence of full-scale conspiracy they are falling into default judgement – – they assume the pluts are catching all the breaks but are not really evil?

Dear Kathleen: you make an excellent point, and it’s probably true. We The People prefer to believe they are not victim of a conspiracy of evil. We The People wants to believe they are subject to the hand of fate, not the hand of man… hence, and here is an example: the “me too” problem: victims of rape, literal or effective (through career denial) and victims of gender discrimination don’t want to believe they were predated upon… and not just because they fear for their careers or places  in society, should they dare to complain.

“Woman of my Dreams” Dream On! 1944…

First, one has to realize society holds together with collective hypnosis. Apparently, cerebral imaging, and other tests, show that hypnosis is a real effect, and politics is its “terrain de prédilection”, its favourite ground. Two-thirds of the population are highly susceptible to hypnosis (and 10% not at all, including probably all genuine philosophers). Hypnosis is very comfortable: one does need one’s brain anymore.

Second, realizing that they were ruled by an evil conspiracy would be a letdown to the subjugated ones: that would show they aren’t living in the best of all possible worlds… and that they were dumb not to have noticed before. 

Third, that would entail that common people have been accomplice of the system, by refusing to see the obvious, and have been accomplices to their own subjugation, hence that they are themselves evil: if they subjugate themselves to submit t evil, who else do they subjugate?

At the time when “Woman of my Dreams” hits Reich theaters, here is August 1944 stark reality: The Nazi governor of Paris, Von Choltitz (on the table), surrenders to General Leclerc his 17,000 soldiers (Leclerc is the 3 star mustachioed general turned towards camera on the left of the Nazi in the picture above). General Leclerc had warned the Nazi he would be arrested as a war criminal, should he obey Hitler’s orders to “burn” Paris. Leclerc commander of the French Second Armored Division, next informed fanatical SS formations which had refused to obey Von Choltitz’s order to surrender that they would be charged of crimes against humanity, if they didn’t surrender. Suddenly getting smart, the SS surrendered to Leclerc. So the SS didn’t obey Hitler’s own commander, but they obeyed the French general! Notice the WC sign behind. The soldier with the armband is from the FFI (French Forces Interior).

Behind the Discours de la servitude volontaire d’Estienne de La Boétie lays a much more troubling fact: the implied discourse on servile criminality by the multitude, accomplice in its own criminal subjugation… 

Indeed, here is a little recapitulation of Estienne de La Boétie’s arguments of the Discourse on Voluntary Servitude:

– The power of tyrants is based only on the abandonment of power, by the people.

– The tyrant is often a weak man, like any other. Only the gullible can idolize him.

– Free spirits will be oppressed.

– The people are the cause of their submission to the tyrant.

– The use of reason will disappear among the people so they can be deceived and dominated.

– Tyrants create very elaborate power structures, consisting of a multi-level hierarchy empowered by conspiracies of accomplices.

To sum up La Boétie: political regimes [of the Renaissance] are based on fear, which is used to conceal the lack of legitimacy of the government. Thus, the people subjected to the self-government in place by simple habit, historical inertia, imprinting.

Gustave Le Bon (1843-1931) disagreed a bit: he thought crowds incapable of reason: “An individual in a crowd is a grain of sand amid other grains of sand, which the wind stirs up at will“.  Being incapable of reason, only emotion worked with crowds. He saw the likes of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, or Obama and Trump for that matter: “The leaders we speak of, are usually men of action rather than of words. They are not gifted with keen foresight… They are especially recruited from the ranks of those morbidly nervous excitable half-deranged persons who are bordering on madness.”

I said one needs more than fear to explain why people love voluntary servitude: hypnotism, intellectual laziness, comfort zone as a religion, and the fact that, by denying they are victims of an atrocious dictatorship, people in their deepest recesses, can then deny that the’re suspects and perpetrators of said dictatorship (as there is no dictatorship, they insist).

Hypnosis seems to be real, according to neuro-imaging. It impacts collectives best. This is, even more than fear and greed, is what brings “servitude volontaire

An example of this, the denial of dictatorship, is the French, and not just the French, attitude to Napoleon… to this day. Napoleon, on the face of it, is one of the most abominable tyrants, ever. Moreover, he stole the Revolution to enrich and endow himself and his gang… all this for his futile pursuit of “power” (which he admitted to be completely hypnotized with. Nap called George Washington the “greatest man, ever” for renouncing power on his own…)

Napoleon is the dictator who sent to Haiti 600 huge dogs specially trained to eat black people (the escaped slaves, the “Marrons” resistants in the mountains [1]). Napoleon also organized his dictatorship so well, that it functions perfectly well to this day (with disastrous consequences for France, hence Europe, hence the world: consider the unelected “prefect” system, straight out of the decaying Late Roman empire). Napoleon, an enslaver, war criminal & criminal against humanity, is the world’s most admired Frenchman. When will the world grow up? His conquests exploited the Revolution: other French generals were better: they respected the Republic.

Fairey, who created this poster was (as I was then) very much taken by Obama at the time. (“Hope” was suggested by the Obama propagandists.) However, Fairey realized later that was gross propaganda. Fairey was jailed countless time, and condemned by the Justice system to 500 hours and a huge fine. By then he realized Obama personally authorized one deadly drone strike every twenty minutes during his 8 years reign. [Compare with Trump, fake left!]

That the plutocrats are not followers of Pluto is Biden (and Obama) main point. Said Biden:”Billionaires are really nice guys!” The truth, though, tends to be the opposite. Granted, real, formally educated engineers such as Bezos or Musk bring real added value (and they are both building reusable rocket systems, for space colonization, among other things). 

However, most billionaires are either so motivated by greed, that they succeeded, or then financed by the greedy (private investors, banks) using dirty tricks that should be unlawful (and have typically been installed by politicos such as Biden and Obama). Thus typical billionaires are criminally profiting from a criminal system, and it’s just a matter of time before their own criminality is very conscious. 

The end result is that each plutocratic individual or organization contributes to a global plutocratic mass. Just as a critical, big enough mass of Plutonium, the Pluto mass can become critical and undergo a chain reaction, where it overwhelms all

A good example is right now the GAFAM, the world top tech monopolies, the world’s most “valuable” companies, in market capitalization: a deliberate effort, probably driven by the US Deep State (NSA, etc.) was made to create world monopolies of information, to, simply, rule the world (the GAFAM themselves being controlled by the Deep State and associated stealth investors: foundations, trusts, etc.). 

If a society doesn’t react to plutocracy before it reaches critical mass, a chain reaction of evil will ensues, from which it is hard to escape: most societies fall into it, self-devouring, or then getting weak enough to be devoured by more democratic, hence stronger societies (story of the world under European domination). Contemplate for example Russia, which has been unable to escape the rule of evil… for centuries (although it came close to escape under the last years of Tsar Nicholas II’s rule… until the Bolshevik coup of 1917).

Hence, it turns out that, to have a more worthy society, more worthy because having more ideas, more science, more understanding, more stuff, more power on nature… and more military might, one needs more, enough collective psychoanalysis to free oneself from the delusion of prior collective hypnosis of a more primitive type, including the erroneous notion that the evil masters are not evil masters

Yes, it was no accident that Alexander’s army knew Alexander was not a god: therein the superiority of the Greek-Macedonian army. That fact had escaped Alexander (until the army went on strike, after observing that India was significantly larger than Alexander had thought… And thus that going to the Pacific was not reasonable).

It’s striking, when one looks at Nazi movies (some of them pretty good artistically) how much in collective dreamland they were. Consider the extract of “Woman From My Dreams” (August 1944, just when Paris was liberated): https://alchetron.com/The-Woman-of-My-Dreams

To get out of voluntary servitude, one needs enough energy to build one’s brain anew, better and more faithful to reality. Work: there is no substitute. No personal mental work, no freedom

To fight stupid propaganda, to fight stupidity that propagates, there is just one way: more intelligent propaganda, clever enough, and brutal enough, to get people out of their comfortable hypnotism and fake moral righteousness… it can’t be just more sophisticated ideas, it has to shatter with emotional impact.

If one doesn’t want people to behave like ants, one will have to kick the anthill... All the more so, because as I said, the ants are not that innocent, and covering that up, makes it even more difficult to extricate. As Greek mythology has it, Pluto is not just evil: it can make himself invisible.

Identity Crisis Promoted By “Social Networks”.

August 3, 2019

Plutocrats need to destroy any pretense We The People may have to create our own identity. The best way to do this is to impose on us identities plutocrats have pre-packaged. The arch example, most famous in all of humanity’s history, is “Roman Catholic Orthodoxy“, which is 2,000 years old, and still around, playing with little children as if they were all sorts of toys, after giving birth to a profusion of just as genocidal sub sects, most tucked inside Islam and Protestantism…

Genocide is the friend and servant of plutocracy and its handy theocrats. The Bible, old or new, and its desert variant, the Qur’an, are full of genocidal paradigms to show the naive masses which way to go… to the slaughterhouse..

There is so much identity politics, a form of tribalism, that it’s not amusing anymore. When Martin Luther King and company marched against racism, they marched against tribalism. Racism is a particular form of contrived, engineered tribalism. Contrived and fake? As when green eyed, blonde, white skin US “blacks” tell you they are “black”, although they look more Nordic than any of Trump’s three sons. Or when one sees strident pseudo-progressives of 2019 being more right wing fanatics than even the worst McCarthyists of the 1950s, and those fascists are real serious, calling themselves “antifa”, while serving the established order better that the worst Trumpist, the amusement fades away…

None of this is an accident: we live in the age of ideas ready to wear, as prepared by corporations which are well considered by the establishment, or have even been instituted by the establishment as self-financed world class spy agencies (as the GAFAM are, and the galaxy of government supported successful startups around them too).

Tribalism is bad, in its present form, not just because of its effects, but in how it originates and why. Tribalism is well known to be a gateway to war. But, in modern form especially, it is chosen for its intellectual fascism, and maybe even what one could call hormonal fascism. If a young German soldier in 1914 wanted to conquer Europe, it was not so much his choice, as the choice of the imprinting the German school system had imposed on him, forcing him to behave as a fascist, racist brute, ready to follow the most inhuman orders.

When people are not themselves, but just one, the same, always, fitting in little definitions prepared by the oligarchy, we are not just treated as little robots, but humanity itself is robbed from the diversity of perception which makes it human.

However, what we see nowadays is a much more subtle form of imprinting. The “likes” system of “social networks” is crucial: by “liking” the US (Internet) providers of fake tribalism find out which pre-packaged tribe one could fit in, and then foster that fake tribe with ever more suggestions. Although the US CIA, Saudi SIA and Pakistani ISI invented rabid Islamism as a worldwide phenomenon, the social networks have been following similar methods, on a grander scale [1]. 

What’s the interest in grouping up people in little mental tribes? Mental packaging… Yes one can sell products to those packages. More generally, the interest at the level of the Deep State, in particular of the Deep State of the US empire, is that minds then become predictable species. For plutocracy in general, it’s even more wonderful: by fostering simplistic mental speciation through artificial tribalism, We The People becomes stupid. And why is sheep easy to control? Because it’s stupid.

There is also identity everything: identifying is popular, because it provides with systems of thought and emotion, packaged and ready for consumption, open and serve, no debate necessary: insult the Prophet, they say, and I want to kill you. That way, even the biggest decisions, one does not have to make.

Identity comes, through French, from the Latin identitatem which means of “the sameness“[2]

Similarly, the more significant the individual, the more important the ideas, and important ideas are different ideas. We are an idea civilization, and all too many ideas recently have been low quality, relative to what’s at stake (the planet). 

To have difference, mental differences, fruitful mental creativity, we need to have authenticity. Authenticity: the contents of the thing in question correspond to the facts and are not fictitious: they are trustworthy, reliable, really as presented. However, nowadays, we live in the world of inauthenticity… Representative “democracy” being the number one exhibit. Fake progressivism feeding the worst and most egregious tribalism is an example. But so is a fake economy (watch the GAFAM, which were pretty much engineered by the US Deep State, to “dominate” (Zuck’s prefered word), as they themselves put it, the world)…

And even more inauthentic is a financial system which lies when it pretends to be fair, or even to be wise in a satanic way (how wise was it to fund fracking?) There is even fake sexual identity. Fake sex, as in males who pretend they are biological females, when it’s presently impossible to make it so technically, like fake news, fake nature and fake thinking, should be discouraged. 

On this, more soon…

Why so much lying? Because it became possible to do so. In Merovingian and Carolingian times, propaganda was difficult: this was before printing. Printing enabled propaganda, thus became tightly controlled by the states. To compensate, atheism was punished by death [1]. Some states (the Ottoman empire) outlawed printing for centuries. Now we are so much long after the invention of printing by the few, for the few, we can do it ourselves. But of course, someone has to read the best thinking, and this is why the Social Networks are organized the way they are: to make sure higher thinking doesn’t get to the lower masses, and that they can be “influenced” by “influencers” who are little more than pornography in action.

None of this is new: Roman identity, by 100 CE had been reduced to craving for “panem et circenses” (bread and circuses), the contemporary Juvenal pointed out. Once well engaged, this stupidification of the masses proved irreversible: by the Sixth Century, in Constantinople, We The People felt smothered by the imperial system of Justinian. However, the Nika riots, originally a tribal clash between the “greens” and the “blues” sport supporters, proved unable to graduate from the circus they originated from in a timely manner: Roman conscience, even consciousness, had been made tribal silly, by centuries of Roman mental fascism, starting with circenses, and culminating in the instauration of legally murderous “Roman Catholic Orthodoxy”. Ancient Romans would not have recognized, or believed this could happen to the Roman Republic…

Nietzsche thought no price was too high to own oneself. The herd, though, thinks exactly the opposite: no price is too high to pay for the privilege of belonging to the herd.

But new ideas never come from the herd, and this is precisely why the herd finds itself so comfortable, and hate new ideas passionately, reinforcing the herd that way.

TREASON AGAINST REASON: FOR WHOM MADNESS TOLLS

July 27, 2019

Specifically, DESTROYING THE PAST TO BUILD A FAKE, SUBJUGATING FUTURE

Madness is often a metalogic. Madness has its reasons that more restricted reason doesn’t.

Any logic needs, to exist, a metalogic. Restricting oneself to the former, makes the latter, literally, unreasonable.

When contemplating past acts of madness, putting them in a fully rational context requires to find out who, or what, profited from them. There lays the metalogic in which madness reveals itself to be rational.

Here we will study some more the following craziness, the will to destroy 83 year old state commissioned art, from Communist Arnautoff, and ponder who profits from it. In the preceding essay WANT HUMAN? FREE TRUTH! Instead, San Francisco Promotes Lying, While Hating History, Reality“, I had emphasized that there is nothing more human than truth. Here I will focus on for whom madness tolls:

After half a century of debate, the San Francisco Board of Education voted unanimously in June to destroy thirteen murals depicting the life of George Washington that line the halls of a high school named after the first US president. The murals offend some uneducated critters by depicting two original sins of the United States, namely : slavery and the Native American genocide. They even evoke the alliance of the French regular troops with the Indians. 

One would guess that individuals offended by the evocation of Natives’ genocide belong to the “Make America Great Again” crowd. But quite the opposite, or so they claim! But then why are they acting even more racist and white nationalists than Trump’s supporters?

One of the murals the San Francisco Board of Education and the PC crowd want to destroy. It depicts (in the back) French troops (in blue) surrendering, while their Native American allies flee. At the time Washington was a colonel in the British army. And committed a war crime against French troop, assassinating 35 of them… In the center, Indians in black and white are turning into ghosts… main work of Washington… That the French were allies to the “Indians” may come as news to the ignorant, and reveal that some of the opposition between France and the USA, in how one should interact with Natives, and in economic models, has very deep roots…

I have always been anti-racist and anti-fascist (I was even attacked physically because of this, more than once). According to some who, nowadays, claim to be antiracist, and antifascist (“antifa”) … while exhibiting the exact opposite behaviors, engage in magical behavior.

According to modern “antifa”, forgetting infamy ever happened is how to fight it. So are we going to destroy what’s left of Auschwitz to make sure we can’t remember something ever happened there? That would be the ultimate holocaust denial. What could help Nazism more?

Wanting to destroy art representing horror means not wanting to learn the worst that happened, and thus the most important which did happen, and thus, may happen again. 

To destroy the evocation of infamy with fighting infamy itself is confusing message and fact, observing and thinking. 

Only a collapse of the educational system could have gotten us so low. We saw this when the Roman state collapsed under the blows of the Roman Catholic inquisition: heresy (making a choice) became subject to capital punishment. It made no sense: how was capital punishment going to help the almighty god? Punishing heresy by death was a sacrifice of reason itself, precisely because it made no sense whatsoever. The true aim of the Roman emperors (such as Theodosius !) instituting Roman Catholic terror was not help god, but to terrorize those who wanted to use reason.

We have a similar phenomenon here. Those who want to “repair” past injustices and crimes, so they claim for the holocaust of the American Natives and slavery, want to do as if those crimes never happened, erase all memory… something Romans did to those they condemned for high crimes against the state: the famous “damnatio memoriae”…. But in this case, it would erase all the crimes against humanity committed by the English Colony in America, and the US.

It makes no sense, it’s an outrage against reason. And if we disagree, we will be punished by being called terrible things, damaging our entire existence. 

As during the collapse of Rome, it doesn’t take very long to realize that violating and punishing reason, terrorizing those who want to use it, profits those who can only fester when reason is not applied to them, the plutocrats. We The People, once deprived of reason, won’t make a revolution…

It may sound strange that individuals who claim to be on the “left” and “progressive” would promote plutocracy. But this is exactly what happened in the later stages of the Roman state, both in occident and the orient [1]. Roman plutocracy had two dimensions, one that of the military (Constantine/Theodosius dynasties), the other that of wealth (much of it, senatorial). By putting Christian mentality in power, that triumph of unreason, it was made so that neither the tax-free status of wealthiest and the dictatorship of the emperors would be submitted to the scathing critique of reason.

Similarly, nowadays, the media controlling plutocracy drives the mental landscape by promoting obviously irrational and self-contradictory opponents, such as these “antifa” who want to destroy Communist ideology of 83 years ago, and confuse magical thinking with reality.

Want to find where reason lurks when confronted to unreason? Look no further than treason!

Any hope? A bit. Before the logical, there is the emotional. Trump has been accused, luridly, with treason. Now, supposing Trump gets his orders from Putin is silly. But what remains is that a president of the USA is accused, by a large part of public opinion, of treason. However silly in this particular case, it breaks an emotional paradigm. And that is that the leadership of the USA could be betraying those it overlords. Emotionally it means that the emotion that the reigning oligarchy is treacherous to We The People, is growing.

And it of course does: watch the mass extinction outside…

[1] It is often said that the Roman state collapsed in the West in 476 CE (forced golden retirement of Augustus Romulus). But that’s silly, as the Franks, fully endowed of Roman state power, were acquiring control… And the Ostrogoths viewed themselves similarly as the Roman state in Italy (Constantinople agreed for the Franks, not for the Ostrogoths). Another common view is that the Roman state didn’t collapse in the Orient…. But it did with the Arab Muslim conquest, which took control of most of the Oriental Roman state. So the collapse of the Roman state in the Orient followed that of Occident within two centuries… Moreover, as the Franks soon viewed themselves fully as the Roman state… One can say the Roman state collapsed in the Orient and Africa… But not in the Occident (!)… the exact opposite of conventional wisdom…

Brexitxit Coming… Obsessions Lasting…

July 19, 2019

People are motivated by obsessions. How obsessions happen and evolve can only be uncovered by studying particular cases. Racism and other tribalisms are example of ubiquitous obsessions… To sound Politically Correct, and cover-up the truth, modern tribalism is called “identity politics“… As many on the self-declared “left” in the West are affected by this basic racism. The other day, I spent four delightful hours talking to a government lawyer, blonde, near white skin (even in summer in the sun), and amazingly pale blue eyes… fiercely identifying as “black”. Another lawyer an Argentinian-American told me, as I sneered, the next day:”Stop telling people how to identify“.

It evoked to me of this famous picture of Adolf Hitler, holding the hand of a happy blonde child, a depiction of Aryan beauty. The photograph was used in Nazi propaganda… Until, years later, it was supposedly found the child had “Jewish blood“.

(Of course the child was more “Nordic” than Hitler, to call her Jewish, as to call white blue eyed blondes “black”, was mentally degenerate…)

There is no better obsession to study when studying obsessions than this self-contradicting idiocy known as “Brexit”, the concept of Great Britain, a European archipelago, would leave Europe. It is a case of Diversion Derangement Syndrome: Great Britain has a serious plutocratic problem, and, instead of fixing it, the Brits got persuaded that the Union was the cause of it, whereas, in truth, it’s British plutocracy which has made Europe more plutocratic…

BREXITXIT?  Brexixit is the exit of Brexit. The failure of Brexit. Brexitxit sounds nearly Polynesian. And it’s entirely appropriate, because Great Britain is lost in a vast sea. Brexitxit will happen: the charade in Great Britain is insane enough to make enough Brexiters pause that the 2016 referendum will be reversed. I said, long ago, that Brexit was fundamentally racist, and, thus, will fail.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2019/02/25/brexit-is-racism-and-thats-why-it-wont-happen-the-uk-will-stay-in-the-eu/

Brexit is seriously racist. Moreover it is devious, deluded, and even criminal, from foreign intervention in British democracy. It would be a bit like Trump followers going crazy, and throwing out all the Asians. Indeed, the Asians brought riches to the USA, from investing and their work, they are thus wealthier than average US citizens. Similarly, European citizens investing and coming to Great Britain made it richer… The exact people Brexit wanted no more to do with…

In truth, the individuals driving Brexit have been world plutocrats: they had transformed Great Britain into a giant tax haven for themselves, and were driven to furious anxiety by the reorientation of the European Union, towards taxing plutocracy more, and, in particular, more than Britain installed world plutocrats could stand. The Plutos then used their control of the media to drive the half of British voters to madness.

Thus, Great Britain has been given to the wolves, in the last few decades, but not those wolves people have been indignantly barking after. Boris Johnson will be their punishment…

Maybe, maybe not. Brexit is actually hilarious. Moreover Boris Johnson is going to be even funnier than May…

Chris Snuggs, a gentleman of great education, a teacher, an international school head, and extremely multinational and world traveller, thinks highly of Boris Johnson: “No, he may be the UK’s saviour once again from Continental fascism, but only if he is courageous enough to stand up to the Forces of Darkness.

Patrice Ayme Beyond just using Boris Johnson’s hairdo for mopping the floor, and his girlfriend to call the police, we must recognize Boris can be quite funny. Anyway, the polls are clear: Brexitxit is around the corner, helas…

Chris Snuggs “If the French could vote TODAY on whether they want to abandon French sovereignty in a federation, HOW WOULD THEY VOTE?
We will NEVER KNOW because the plutocratic Illuminati will NEVER give them a vote. They made that mistake in 2006 when giving the French people a referendum on “The European Constitution”, the name itself giving the game away and revealing the galactic arrogance of the Illuminati:
The French voted NON, so the Illuminate simple passed the bill in parliament as “The Lisbon Treaty”.
As I said – FASCISM; an elitist group claiming IT ALONE has the right to decide because the people are too stupid.
You did not have the French Revolution to be subject to this, and it is time you voted into power someone who respects democracy.”

Patrice: The European Union is actually LESS fascist than its constituent nations… which are free to NOT follow EU law, de facto… Even on excellent EU laws, like those on pollution: France has been flaunting EU law on soil, air and water pollution, big time, forever…

The EU is just as its title indicates: European, and an Union. The EU has an executive, the European Council, of the 28 democracy HEADS (or their subordinates). An administration, the EC, remarkably efficient, administrating 513 million people, a Parliament, a Supreme Court, etc….

The EU is much less fascist than any of the other major states (or “Unions”: United States, Russian Federation, etc.)

Could all the major states, including the EU, be made much more democratic? Yes! With Referendum Initiative Citizen (RIC). Basically make all states into large Switzerland. The lamentable Brexit occurred as a successful Diversion Derangement Syndrome. The DDS happened to divert from wild, rogue, globalized plutocracy. The European Union is the solution, the prevention, of an even bigger malady: intercine European conflicts. Brexit threw the baby with bath.

Chris Snuggs Sorry. The LISBON TREATY kills national sovereignty. It is as simple as that. Any nation under the LISBON TREATY is NOT a sovereign state. There is NO WAY YOU CAN DENY that, Patrice. Doing so would destroy your credibility.
A sovereign state has control over its borders, laws, finances and defence. It may enter into agreements with other states regarding those matters, but as soon as it is not free to cancel those agreements, it is NOT A SOVEREIGN STATE.
You didn’t answer my question. Would The French People Collectively Vote To Abandon French Sovereignty?

One Hundred And Sixty-five Nations On The Planet Are Sovereign; The UK Seeks To Become One Of Them.

Answer: California is a state, but not a sovereign one. Does California do pretty much what it wants? Pretty much so. California has a bigger GDP than Britain. The French voted to abandon part of French sovereignty, and transfer it to European sovereignty (which they themselves influence). The French voted many times that way, last for the European Sovereignist Macron not Le Pen. So one can call that a vote to abandon *SOME* elements of sovereignty. In exchange California and France get amplification.

There are plenty of pictures of this man and child, some hugging. Nazis withdrew the pictures from propaganda when they learned the girl was “Jewish”… But, showing the immense complexity of real Nazism, Hitler kept on having the same relationship with the little girl, even though he knew she was “Jewish”… “Jewish” in Nazism was exactly like the “one drop “blood” rule” in the USA: it was grotesque. More alarming, to this day is that, like this blonde blue eyed, sharp thin nose lawyer I was talking to, US “Blacks” still apply the “one drop blood rule” to…. themselves… And so do the others. Many pseudo-democrats apply this “identity politics” to anything. For example, Wahhabist Islam has become a… race… liberating women….

Chris Snuggs: “And you are doing what all REMAINERS DO: introducing irrelevant examples:
“An administration, the EC, remarkably efficient, administrating 513 million people, a Parliament, a Supreme …”
It does NOT administer 513 million people. It is NOT A STATE. It is TRYING to administer them but it has NO MANDATE TO DO SO. And if you think that the salaries and expenses of Eurocrats are less than obscene, then I am afraid we part company. An elite imposing things on the plebs to which the latter have not consented is FASCIST. Unfortunately, fascism comes all to easy to Continental elites as we have seen repeatedly over the centuries.
You are welcome to submit yourself to German rule; we refuse it.”

The Lisbon Treaty was voted in by referendum (Ireland, say) or by acts of Parliament, all over Europe. Unimpeachable direct or “representative” democratic process.

Obsessions are important, and actually fruitful and can be progressive: obsessions enable to push new systems of thoughts to their full extent… thus make us more intelligent. Many mathematicians are now depicted as “Asperger”… meaning obsessive (Dr. Asperger himself was a virulent, professional Nazism, and his “syndrome” was part of his Nazi system of thought…)

Obsess all you want, as long as you can also obsess out of the box you usually obsess in. Not just your logical box, but also your hormonal and emotional boxes. This is one thing heavy exercise provides with. Obsess and profess, but don’t forget to fess up.

There is an obsession problem. People are obsessing wrong. A century ago, in the West, there used to be capitalists, rentiers, opposed and opposing the socialists and communists. However, the latter have been disabled themselves, and have been disabled (long story, basically plutocratic capitalism at work). So what do people do now? They cultivate other obsessions. Petty obsessions, because if they had serious obsessions, they would be fired… And join the homeless on the streets. Thus, to alleviate their well-founded rage and anxiety, they focus on petty, insignificant issues…. Hence the increasing abundance of Diversion Derangement Syndrome: obsessing about nothing, focusing all of one’s emotions on issue such as “Trump is anti-immigrant” (never mind that he married two at-some-point illegal immigrants and had children with them).

Know Thyself means, in particular, know thy obsessions. If one doesn’t have full knowledge of one’s inside hell, it only be out of control.

GROUP Selection, Not Selection Of THE Fittest

June 23, 2019

Groups cannot be avoided, when considering human evolution and selection, because humans always lived in groups: WE EVOLVED FROM GROUPS, AS GROUPS.

Many intellectuals believe that there was an original Eve, and Adam, and we all come down from them. This is a variant of the Celebrity Cult, in this case the indispensable first couples, from which the concept of fist couples emanates (in the clouded minds of the conventional establishment members). For example Yuval Harari, an historian with scientific spirit pretense, but falling short from the deliberate naivety which makes him so attractive to plutocracy, says in his famous book “Sapiens” that at some point a female ape had two daughters. The descendants of one of them are us, the other, the chimps.

This is, most probably, false. And that it is false matters a lot, philosophically speaking, as I will thereafter show.[1]

Why?

Selection of the fittest works best with bacteria, and maybe only with them. It can’t work much with humans. Humans evolve very fast, precisely because they are apt and inclined to go colonize the weirdest environments, each of them a new ecological niche. In the last 300,000 years, many human species still existed. At least three, with interbreeding capabilities, Denisovans, Neanderthals, and African Sapiens, contributed to our (rather mixed!) ancestry.   

Hominidae from the superfamily Hominoidea (“Apes”) are so highly social that they cannot long survive without the group (even Orangutans live in groups, supermales communicating with following females located miles away, thanks to their booming voice). Thus, picture this: a female has two daughters, A and B. However their descendants then interbreed with other members of the group and back with each others’ descendants: thus descendancy then becomes an entangled network. Two groups in intergenic relations will then appeared as two entangled super networkd with attractors (in the differential topological sense). And so on. Physical separation of human groups (for whichever reason: natural disaster, emigration, etc.) will then congeal increasingly different genetics. At no point, though, will there be a single Adam and Eve couple. Physical separation is easily obtained, as human beings ecological load is so heavy that it forces separation, lest everybody starves.

In the drawing above, one can see arrows going back and forth. This means that Chimps and Australopithecines would have kept breeding back and forth, even after the two groups separated. There is indeed evidence that the initial separation was around ten million years ago, but there was some interbreeding around six million years ago.

Adam and Eve? That’s good for the Bible. (Some are still all too inspired by the Bible!)

Notice that selection of a fitter group is rather then partly a question of colonizing a new ecological niche, and fitting to it genetically. Once again, we see that colonization promoted the evolution of humanity. One needs a particular mentality to go colonize. There is no doubt it became part of human ethology.

Aside from the latest philosophical point, some may sneer that even Darwin mentioned group selection (although he preferred individual selection), so the preceding is nothing new. Elaborated mathematical arguments have appeared, and made super-stars. However, recently, there was serious push-back. [2]

The advantage of my argument above is that it is as simple as it gets: mutation, in one individual, would immediately spread back to the group. Or a subset of the group. So subsets of groups of individuals evolve, only them can evolve, into separated genomes… because of the addition of other factors (like physical separation).

Group selection is entangled with individual selection. Let’s take an example from my own theory of the quasi-extinction of Neanderthals: I argued that, inside a group, individuals with more Neanderthal genetic material would be harder to reproduce during quasi-extinction events: Neanderthals had much more muscle mass, and also 10% more brains.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2014/04/27/neanderthal-superiority/

The more massive Neanderthal brain, at rest, would, all by itself, augment caloric needs by nearly 3%. So more Neanderthalized children, in a group of individuals of mixed genetics, would be harder to feed, and would have poorer health… hence would tend to survive less.

So, progressively, non-obviously very advantageous Neanderthal genes would tend to disappear… But the evolution would be in the group, by the group.

See my: Math Extinguished Neanderthals:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2013/03/14/why-did-neanderthals-disappear/

We were not just born altruistically, we were born from altruism, from groups… And from the desire, the will to power and discovery, to find new ecological niches, out of which groups, species are born… Now all over the Solar System, and, soon enough, the entire galaxy

The same happens with the evolution of ideas: although the initial idea will arise in just one individual, it amounts to nothing, if not transferred to a group. And, once transferred to the group, it is often transmogrified into something else, again to be transmuted by some more individuals therein.

Last, but not least: last month the fact that Quantum Jumps are complex phenomena was demonstrated; there is a warning over the Quantum system, before a Quantum Jump occurs. This opens various “Sub Quantum” (to use my semantics) perspectives, including controlling Quantum processes. Could something similar happen with evolution? Could we control it? Of course. Artificial selection has been known for many millennia. Ancient Greece was practicing it deliberately, mixing artificial and natural selection to evolve new phenotypes, which were then sold all over the ancient world for lots of money (genetic engineering is not new).

The way then biological evolution was naturally occuring was through ecological niches. Same for the evolution of ideas, or moods, emotions: mental niches will engineer mental creativity. This is the best, deepest, most human reason to foster diversity. Not just diversity of skin, but diversity of mind, opinion, sentiment, mood, ideas. As basic internet services are turned into public utilities (part of E. Warren’s program), one has to keep this as the most important principle.

[2] Harvard’s E.O. Wilson, the “father of sociobiology” and a world-expert on ant colonies, was one of the pillars of 20 C view of evolution, has argued that “multi-level selection”—essentially a modern version of group selection, and what is implicit in my Neanderthal decrease theory—is the best way to understand social evolution. In his earlier work, Wilson was a staunch defender of kin selection, but no longer; he has recently penned sharp critiques of the reigning kin selection orthodoxy.

Richard Dawkins, of the infamous “selfish gene” and “meme” concepts, says that Wilson is “just wrong” about kin selection and that his most recent book contains “pervasive theoretical errors.”  Once again, the argument above is too simple for that: groups cannot be avoided, when considering human evolution and selection, because humans always lived in groups: WE EVOLVED FROM GROUPS, AS GROUPS. It’s what’s called in mathematics a counter-example: a simple case which brings down an over-simplistic, thus erroneous theory. 

Dawkins brandished the example of (European) red squirrels being outcompeted in Britain by (American!) grey squirrels. Indeed, this is not a case of genuine group selection, as the success of one group and the decline of another is a side-effect of individual level selection. This has nothing to do with the argument here, as the two species of squirrels don’t interbreed…

Olive Branch: Peace By Changing Moods, Thus Logic, From Conflict, To Life.

June 11, 2019

Athena competed with Poseidon for possession of Athens. Poseidon claimed possession by thrusting his trident into the Acropolis, where a well of sea-water gushed out. Athena took possession by planting the first olive tree beside the well.

The court of gods and goddesses ruled that Athena had the better right to the land because she had given it the better gift.

Why are olive branches brandished to extend offers of peace? What does the olive branch represent? An Olive Branch consists of a meager branch to which are attached pretty silver-green leaves… illustrating life, and promising olives. Olives fed people, and those fruits also provided them with oil, the main oil of the Mediterranean region. The Olive Branch thus reminds people of the logic of agriculture, sustenance of trees, no less, spanning generations, providing the means for life… The exact opposite of the logic of war.

Olive tree branches above the Mediterranean Sea (Italy).

There are logics, and they are always entangled with moods, overwhelming emotional systems tied in to the underlying neurobiology itself.

This is true even in the foundations of physics: moods rule. For example, the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics claimed that the observer was the creator of reality. That overbearing mood had enormous consequences on the entire mentality, itself a logic, entangled with emotion, of the Twentieth Century.

Thus, there was no real reality, that Copenhagen mood claimed, only created interpretations, and, thus, implicitly, the Leader created the world. Ever since, Leaders have been ruling… disowning We The People of responsibility, and the desire to partake in information, let alone decision

However that entire logic, and the mentality attached to it, has just been revealed by a French physicist  to be erroneous. [1] 

The logic of this entire civilization, and the emotional roots it is entangled with, thus has to be changed. Back to real reality, instead of wishful thinking masquerading as real.

Athena’s Owl, symbolizing wisdom, surrounded by olive branches. Silver coin, Athens 200 BCE, French Coin Museum.

Changing logico-emotional systems of moods is what the Olive Branch does. Beethoven was aware that moods have to be changed forcefully to reestablish joy, and that, without it, nature’s breast was out of reach. As Ludwig put it in the 9th Symphony Ode to Joy:

O friends, no more of these sounds!

Let us sing more cheerful songs,

More songs full of joy!

Joy!

Joy!

Joy, bright spark of divinity,

Daughter of Elysium,

Fire-inspired we tread

Within thy sanctuary.

Thy magic power re-unites

All that custom has divided,

All men become brothers,

Under the sway of thy gentle wings.

Whoever has created

An abiding friendship,

Or has won

A true and loving wife,

All who can call at least one soul theirs,

Join our song of praise;

But those who cannot must creep tearfully

Away from our circle.

All creatures drink of joy

At nature’s breast.”

A civilization is not just a bunch of buildings, a court, an army, and a few verses. It is, first of all, a collective mood. Forceful changes of logics is how one gets one’s smarts up high enough to survive.

The Olive Branch symbolizes the change of logic. From conflict, to the essence of life. [2]

At some point, the logic of conflict has to change to the logic of life. Waving an Olive Branch reminds us of life.

Now the Olive Branch needs to be brandished, not just to other People, but to Planet Earth Herself.

Absence of Presence Is Not Presence of Absence: QUANTUM JUMPS PREDICTED, Copenhagen Interpretation SHATTERED

June 10, 2019

A bit less than a century ago, the formidable computational arsenal of Quantum Mechanics Interpretation Copenhagen (QMIC) was erected. The whole enterprise consisted in no less than deciding what reality was about. Grotesquely erroneous principles of the Copenhagen Interpretation of QM such as: “Only what can be observed is real”…. Had tremendous effects on the collective psyche of the intellectual leadership of the world.

For example, if only what is observed is real, then what Stalin, Hitler, and Mao, or the Khmer Rouge, or Franco, did was not real… as long as it couldn’t be observed. As per this philosophy of appearances, some of the leaders of physics in Germany were fanatical Nazis.

This sort of philosophy worthy of a two year old held sway in the mind of the collective. To make fun of it, Schrodinger and einstein (they were writing to each other, there is some evidence einstein originated the idea) invented the “Schrodinger Cat”.

According to the idiotic QMIC, a cat in death mechanism box was a mix of dead and live cat. Schrodinger’s point was that we all know very well that, at any given moment the cat is not alive and dead, but alive OR dead.[1]

***

Applied French Physicist Michel Devoret Reveals (At Least Part Of) Copenhagen Interpretation Is Hogwash:

If I understand the experiment well, what Devoret and the youngsters he is directing succeeded to do is this. They illuminate an atom A, and A gives back a light L, which they continuously monitored. When A stops suddenly emitting L, they know they atom A is going to undergo some so-called “Quantum Jump”. [2]

It turns out that, contrarily to what the Copenhagen Interpretation pack of irrational beings believed 100%, Quantum Jumps have more to do with the situation above than with what Bohr, Heisenberg and their sycophants believed…

In other words, Devoret and al. found a way to predict a Quantum Jump, one should call it a Quantum ERUPTION (so the speak).  

This means that there is an inner machinery inside the atom, just as there is an inner machinery inside a volcano (so Einstein, De Broglie, Schrodinger were right to hypothesize that it was ignorance which showed up, to some extent, as ignorance).

***

Here We Have Atomic “Quantum Jumps” neither instantaneous nor random:

The researchers built a superconducting electrical circuit that behaves like an atom with three energy levels. These are: the ground state; an auxiliary “bright” state that can be connected to the ground state by a transition stimulated by microwave light; and a “dark” state into which the atom can jump.

They managed to control the quantum jump once it engaged in its preparatory phase, by applying an electric pulse to the artificial atom. In this way, they intercepted it and sent it back to the ground state. They are only able to do this because the quantum jump is not truly instantaneous and random. Instead, quantum jumps take the same trajectory between the two energy levels every time, so it is possible to predict how to send them back.

According to the Yale team, this is an important point: “while quantum jumps appear discrete and random in the long run, reversing a quantum jump means the evolution of the quantum state possesses, in part, a deterministic and non-random character,” say Devoret and Minev. “The jump always occurs in the same, predictable manner from its random starting point.”.

The findings are in complete agreement with the predictions of modern quantum trajectory theory,” Devoret told Physics World, “with essentially no adjustable parameters. One of the applications for the type of experiment performed in our study is an efficient method for detecting very weak signals buried in quantum noise, and real-time intervention based on the results of this detection.” [3]

The results should also provide new ground for exploring intervention techniques to control quantum systems, such as the early detection of error syndromes in quantum error correction,” adds Minev, Devoret’s Post Doc. An unexpected jump could signal a mistake in calculations, for instance, and might allow researchers to spot the beginning of the jump and account for the error – or perhaps even reverse it before it is enacted. This is not the first time Quantum Jumps are found to have structure: when a laser ionizes an atom, it waa found in 1916, that there are two possibilities and they last different durations.

Devoret and his lab reported their work in Nature 10.1038/s41586-019-1287-z, will try to generalize their experiment to a situation involving two distant measurements on a common entangled system and see how the two distant jumps correlate. “This would be analogous to dissecting a Bell-inequality violation measurement,” says Devoret.

I always thought that SUB QUANTUM PHYSICS REALITY (SQPR) would appear in experiments. This is evidence of existence thereof.

It’s also of general interest. The pre-toddler philosophy established by Bohr and company may have in turn led to the extreme relativism of “French Theory”, a disease which has affected viciously not just philosophy, but politics, economics, sociology (present day “populism” is a long-delayed reaction to it). Supposedly, according to these extreme irrealists, there are “no savages”!

…and all these ideologies, characterized by the deep denial of reality, served plutocracy well.

One mistake the Copenhagen Interpretation pack of deliriously irrational physicists was to confuse absence of evidence for evidence of absence. An elementary error of the most basic type which toddler learn to master. But you know, they were infected with expert arrogance.   

Yes, there are savages, and yes the Copenhagen Interpretation was for idiots, by idiots. Bohr, Heisenberg, etc. idiots? Of course. Smart in the physics they did (most of it direct consequence of De Broglie’s breakthrough work), didn’t’ make them philosophically competent. Watch Heisenberg directing the Nazi atomic energy program…. [4]
