No need for extra dimensions, just complex math

There is no need for the extra dimensions postulated in string theory physics.  Of course, string theory was proven to be a dead end more than a decade ago, but that hasn't stopped thousands of mathematicians from playing with the pretty formulae.

All we need are the regular old three dimension plus time.  But we need to start using mathematics the right way.  That means complex numbers.  No physical theory uses complex numbers in a serious way.  Oh, several formulae use complex numbers, especially in electronics, to indicate rotation.  It's great at that.  They just don't use it as the baseline.  All our physics is based on real numbers, because that is our ordinary experience.  We can't actually imagine a ball moving in a complex direction, because we've never seen what that might look like.

And then along came the weak force.  It can't be explained, it can barely be described.  It is not well understood, because it breaks so many expectation we have about fundamental forces.

And then along came neutrinos.  They can't be explained, they can barely be described.  They are not well understood, because they break so many expectations we have about fundamental particles.

We need to seriously start thinking about complex math being the fundamental math that the universe operates under.

I hereby designate the positive direction in the imaginary plane "Heaven", and the negative direction "Hell".  Here there be monsters, demons, and angels.  And truth.

Sushi as an inflation proxy?

Is the price of sushi really a reliable inflation/CPI proxy?  Some people certainly think so.  If it's not 100% accurate, it seems to be more reliable than any of the known-fraudulent government models.

After all, who are you going to believe about inflation rates, the government or your lying bank account?  (Please note that the prices of almost everything doubled during the Obama administration, while the government kept announcing record low inflation levels.)

Michael Mann still hiding the decline

In recent news, Michael Mann, the Bernie Madoff of climate fraud, has lost his 8+ year libel suit against a real climate scientist.  Why did he lose?  Because he refused to obey the court order to turn over his data and deobfuscate his models. 

In other words, he committed contempt of court to avoid showing that the data is faked and the models are crooked.

Information-Entropy field to replace dark matter theory?

OK, this actually requires some pondering.  Information-entropy fields adding energy to galaxies, causing them to rotate more quickly than the observable mass would indicate?  That's bringing old ideas out, and polishing them up.  Who needs dark matter when entropy works just as well?

Glo-bull Warning

Whenever you hear someone ranting on about "climate change" (formerly global warming, formerly global cooling), just remember:

The ground temperature data is falsified.
The satellite temperature data is currently being falsified.
The ice cores are lied about.
The tree rings were from one side of one tree.
The models are bupkis.
The data is hidden.
The sources are deleted.
The code is obfuscated.
Simple questions and contrary opinions are shouted down.

Questioners are labeled as heretics and threatened with death.

There is no science in their "science".  It's political religion all the way down.  

Marx is a jealous god.

Real drug rehab

Every drug rehab facility you've ever heard of is an scam.  Those 30, 60, 90 day programs?  They do no good whatsoever in 99.44% of cases.

Successful drug rehab requires a minimum of 9 months in a specialized facility. And that is only for the well behaved people who want to be there, and have a serious consequence if they fail to pass the program. It takes 90-120 days for the average druggie to finally admit to himself that he actually has a problem, and that problem is the drugs. Rehab starts the day after that breakthrough. The average stay is 12-15 months.

Real rehab centers have to teach druggies how to be human. This is neither easy, quick, nor cheap. Once they have mastered how to human, then they are taught how to be an adult.

The staff to patient ratio is around one to one. Staff members are on a two year rotation, because they burn out fairly quickly.

How do I know this?  I was lucky enough, in the Army, to be selected to be my unit's urinalysis drug testing program coordinator.  (Better known as the piss test NCO.)  And we were located near both the drug testing facility for the East Coast, and one of the two successful rehab facilities in the entire country.  Yes, there are only two.  The one in Maryland is the biggest, and can handle up to a maximum of one hundred and twenty patients at a time.

Lead, follow, or get out of the way!

The purpose of government is to establish a minimum level of social compliance, enforce contracts, encourage trade, protect life and property, and to punish villains.
Government is force.
Force is pain, suffering, and death.
If you aren't willing to inflict pain, suffering, and death in the defense of your nation, you have no right to any say in how the government is organized and managed.
