(22 March 2023) Oh oh an awful lot happened,
for example the Vlad was indicted by the ICC for the kidnapping of
thousands of children. It's a symbolic move but now Vladimir Putin
can be arrested anywhere in the world and if he goes to member
countries of the ICC it is obliged that he will be arrested.
That was funny news but lets go fast to our
two items for today:
Item 1) What happened in Suisse over
the weekend? It looks weird...
Item 2) EU donating one million artillery shells to Ukraine!
Item 1) What happened
in Suisse over the weekend? It looks weird...
The Credit Suisse takeover by USB this
weekend has gone weird: About 17 billion € in so called AT1
bonds were wiped out but shareholders not. This was possible via a
change in legislation over the weekend.
It looks like a total panic over there at the
regulators, an alternative explanation is that they wanted to keep
the Saudi & other mideast money at friend and as such did
choose for this weird change in law.
Other countries have come out stating such a
thing would not be possible over there: First the shareholders
take a beating and that's it.
Last week in the USA suddenly all amount in
the accounts were guaranteed while usually there is a ceiling of
250.000 US$ in place. But that change is not very significant, at
most the money streams to the FDIC must double and of course that
must be paid by the banks and the holders of big deposits at those
But the Swiss thing is of another order. Why
change the order between bondholders and shareholders? Well lets
see and wait how this all will pan out.

Exit Bankers, Enter Lawyers in Credit Suisse Saga
At last I want to remark that these bank runs
are still pretty weird, the problem of uninsured bank deposits is
a problem that is about 300 years old. Why is there no simple
plain vanilla commercial insurance against this kind of bank
If memory serves, before the financial crisis
there were also product like buying a AAA-rating if you wanted to issue
bonds as say a US municipality. Now those were crazy products if
not well capitalized but stuff like uninsured bank deposits?
It beats me as why this is a problem, at
worst it's a problem for badly run banks.
Item 2) EU donating
one million artillery shells to Ukraine! YES!!!
Yes, this is the stuff making me proud on the
EU. It seems to be a package of two billion € where one billion
is meant to deplete existing ammo depots in Europe and the other
billion for procurement of a similar batch of artillery rounds.
All 155 millimeter diameter of course, the
procurement is done inside the EU and also Norway who is not a
full EU member but we have close ties in a lot of
In another development inside Crimea a bunch
of Russian cruse missiles exploded while they were transported via
rail. The attack was done with drones it was rumored, but were
they Chinese drones? Right now the Chinese prez Xi is visiting the
Vlad so using Chinese drones would be and extra funny detail in
That the end of this post, I didn't have time
to make enough pictures so all I have is something unrelated to
the above items. It is about the rather silly way robots are often
portrayed in videos about artificial intelligence.
Why is it always so weird and stupid? From
female shaped robots with boobs to what you see below a human in a
plastic robot suit. To at the bottom of the picture where computer
generated images depict robots typing on
Why always so fucking stupid? Robots typing
with a speed of about 100 characters per minute? Why don't they
plug in a UBS cable to that laptop and since they are robots
anyway: Why would they need a laptop in the first place?

(17 March 2023) The financial markets are
still spooked by all that is happening in the banking sector
importantly the sell off in bank shares. In my view there is too
much crisis for too little reason. Anyway the good thing is the
ECB raised rates by another 50 basis points today so no weak knees
It's late already so lets go to the two items
Item 1) All quiet on the Bakhmut front?
Item 2) Advertisement for latest math post: new 4D numbers!
Item 1) All quiet on
the Bakhmut front?
From the channel Veteran combat reacts I
found these screenshots that show amazing little fighting in
Bakhmut. I think the name of the guy running that Youtube channel
is Paul and Paul is constantly worried about a possible fall of
Bakhmut. And often say they should retreat.
I too became more and more worried the last
weeks but as usual most of the time the Ukrainians perfectly know
what they are doing. There were only three attacks reported in the
last 24 hours so we can wonder if the Wagner group is running out

Paul discusses one of those mine throwers

but there are weapon systems that can throw anti tank mines rather
precise over long distances.
I agree with Paul that it is important
Ukraine gets those kind of advanced weapon systems. After all
Russia is also throwing in her big tech in the form oh hyper sonic
So Ukrainians should have good stuff too in
order to defend herself against a crazy invasion done by a crazy
form of Kremlin mindset.
Item 2) Advertisement
for latest math post: new 4D numbers!
A few days back I posted some math where on 7
different spaces I more or less solve the same easy to understand
differential equation. I will be the first to remark that this is
a very easy differential equation, you only search for a solution
where the derivative is the square of the position.
If you phrase it in words like above it
sounds very complicated but actually it is very simple. A possible
solution is for example the geometric series and that is century
old simple plain math stuff.
Anyway on 7 different spaces I do this, three
spaces are just plain vanilla math spaces like the real line, the
complex plane and the plane of split complex numbers. The other
spaces are crafted by myself and include the 3D complex and
circular numbers and their four dimensional cousins and nephews.
The result is that all results are very similar, the solutions
only become more complicated if you look at higher dimensions but
basically it is all the same.
Why should that be important? Well on this
little planet there is a profession known as math professors. And
the overwhelming opinion over there is that the only possible
reasonable expansion of the complex plane is the 4D quaternions.
In my view this is not correct, stuff like
that is only the historical timeline along such number systems
were found and that's all. There is not much logic in jumping from
the complex plane to only the quaternions, any person that
understands a bit more about math will say this is the behavior of
people that have some mental thing.
And yes these people have some 'mental thing'
for sure. If you look at the simple list of results on 7 different
spaces and you keep on telling that historical nonsense, you as a
math professor must have a serious mental thing.

where it always goes slow and avoid always the long term progress.

website'. Thanks for your attention.
(15 March 2023) The training of Ukrainian
tank crews is more or less in full swing. It helps a lot that they
already know how to drive those other tanks, but likely there are
a lot of new technical details to learn when it comes to that
Leopard tank stuff.
The first use of JDAM BOOM stuff was
reported. And there also seem to be gliding JDAMs that have two
small wings and glide to their target. Well be careful my dear
Ukrainians but I wish you luck with the usage of them.
At the Pentagon they likely see water
burning: Reinko wishing Ukrainians good luck with the air power
stuff? What has happened? Nothing to worry about my dear Pentagon,
after all it is much better that Ukraine wins this conflict and
yes sometimes over here the goal serves the means.
Today's first item is about that weird panic
on the financial markets in particular bank stocks. So lets go
Item 1) SVB risk team: The physics professors
of US banking?
Item 2) A small example of the new Midjourney5 that will come out
Item 1) SVB risk
team: The physics professors of US banking?
The collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank was
swift and brutal. And because we now have three banks collapsing
in just a few days time, do I think there will be a new financial
Me too I am in the camp that this is not very
likely. For example just before the financial crises back over a
decade the Federal Reserve so called Z1 release indicated that the
entire US financial sector would need about 2.4 trillion US$ in
fresh extra debt in order to maintain business as usual. Of course
that would never happen, back in the time a trillion had much more
value as a trillion today.
If you listen to the details of the SVB
collapse they are staggering in stupidity: They sit on 100 billion
of deposits and bought a lot of long term treasuries in order to
squeeze out that extra 1 or 1.5%. Zero protection against a
decline in the value of those treasuries. That is not needed
because they are hold to maturity and as such the book value is
not the market value. I mean this is stupid by all standards, so I
do not expect this practice to be widespread throughout the
At least at one point in time it looks
reasonable that at least one employee at SVB remarked that may be
they should guard against downside risks, but the management or
risk department did just nothing. Well that looks a lot like for
example physics professors behave in my little corner of
understanding the universe.
No matter how often I remark that if you
think your precious electrons are tiny magnets, shouldn't it be
time to conduct some experiment that proves electrons are indeed
That is because to me anyway it looks like
they just don't behave like tiny magnets. Physics professors,
weird and stupid as they are, are not capable of figuring out for
themselves that if electrons have two magnetic poles, they must be
neutral when it comes to magnetism. On top of that it is known
that electron pairs are neutral when it comes to magnetism.
But unpaired electrons are not neutral to
magnetism, hence the only logical conclusion is that electrons are
magnetic monopoles. If you use that small change in thinking this
explains a lot, for example why do we only observe electron pairs
but never electron triples or quartets?
In my view the bankers from SVB are even more
stupid as physics professors who believe in weird fairy tales like
electrons are tiny magnets. But the difference is not that big,
physics professors have more cognitive capabilities as those SVB
bankers but they are still fucking stupid.
Just like at SVB it was not considered to pay
for hedging the risk to just one 100 billion or more in
Yes there are a lot of similarities here:
Just not responsive over a few years of time is the most important
similarity and of course: Being stupid in the first place...
Item 2) A small
example of the new Midjourney5 that will come out this week.
The next picture is made by Midjourney and it
is astonishing. Can you tell the difference with a real photo? It
becomes harder and harder.
It's only the behavior of the barbed wire in
this picture that is a bit strange. But it also has many features
that make you think you are looking at a real photo.
Ok that's it for this update. Thanks for your
(10 March 2023) There was a fresh round of
Russian rocket attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure. This time they
used more rocket types that are hard to shoot down like those
hypersonic rockets. So the series of open war crimes continues and
sometimes I wonder why countries like China still support Russia.
Ok ok after four years of donald trump it is understandable that
China needs a few years to recover but siding with a bunch of
weird war criminals is likely not a strategy born from
Just one item for today:
Item 1) More Nord Stream news and an update
on the econ sanctions against Russia.
Item 1) More Nord
Stream news and an update on the econ sanctions against Russia.
Two video's in this item, the Nord Stream
video is about 45 minutes and the vid on economical sanctions is
only 8 minutes or so.
In Germany the investigation is still ongoing
and they warn against jumping to conclusions too fast. Well on the
day the attacks took place, at the end of that day after 2 or 3
minutes thinking about all that information for myself I took the
conclusion that it was likely the USA.
Of course I too don't have a snippet of proof
for that so it is better to name it a hypothesis that might need a
bit more investigation.
The last days there are rumors that the
sabotage attacks were done by some pro Ukrainian group. Well that
is very interesting but an attack like this needs a high degree of
professionalism and for me it is hard to phantom that some
amateurs were driving about with hundreds of pounds of high
explosives in their cars.
Anyway this pro Ukrainian group has allegedly
rented a yacht that belongs to two Ukrainians and on that yacht
traces of explosives were found. If I remember it correct these
traces were found in January so it is hard to say how substantial
this is. After all if it was done by professionals, these pro's
could also have created many false leads like brushing a bit of
high explosives here and there.
Welcome to conspiracy land by the way.
Then there is that talk of some covert
operation done by Ukraine herself. I don't think that bears any
logic. In the first place they have Russian gas pipes right in
their own territory so why not blow that up? Or more locally
attack gas pipes going to Turkey.
So the last days I have seen nothing that
changes my mind on my original conclusion or hypothesis from Sept
last year. As always click on the picture to land on the

Ok economical sanctions. The video is very
funny, the Yale professor looks like some angry professor from the
muppets. He sounds like a true anti USSR iron eater trahing all
things related to Russia.
Of course that is the right attitude but at
the same time we must always stay realistic. The strategic goal of
the economical sanctions is to weaken the Russian economy to the
extend they can not repeat a military adventure as they do today
That strategy is in the interest of all
European nations regardless of NATO membership. We don't want that
kind of shit Russia, so we will keep on applying more and more
economical sanctions until this long term strategic goal is
One thing I would like to remark is that I
did see a few times the VAT taxes a collected by the Russian
state. At first sight these are so dramatic in decline that it
validates a lot of what the Yale professor says on this detail.
But we must not jump to significant conclusion on just a VAT
collecting detail. May be Russia has a very different VAT
collecting system at hand. If for example all basic goods have 0%
VAT and only the very luxury things have a significant level of
VAT, the decline in Russian collected VAT taxes only means a shift
away from luxury items.
So we must be sure the economical damage is
there and not be lazy engulfing ourselves in shallow thinking. We
must never become as what the math professors are: lazy, shallow
thinkers and overpaid overpromoted individuals. No, a fresh brain
willing to learn is a far better thing to have behind your eyes
and between your ears.

(08 March 2023) Well Bakhmut is still
standing and it seems both parties are willing to throw in more of
their best fighters. US SecDef Lloyd Austin came out stating that
the loss of Bakhmut is not a strategic victory for Russia.
That is correct of course but another analyst pointed out that the
Ukrainians have to fight Russia somewhere so why not Bakhmut? But
a lot of people constantly seeing the Ukrainians surrounded from
three sides and as such we worry too much Ukrainians can get
killed. We don't want that of course.
But it is their fight and it is always better
if the Ukrainians decide upon themselves what is best or what they
want. And it is clearly not crazy to keep on fighting in Bakhmut,
after all a lot of Russians died in that place.
I cleaned this homepage, the old stuff is in
the archives and if stuff is ok this homepage will load again much
quicker. That took a lot of time so I only have one item for you
today. Let's go:
Item 1) BBC on the Wuhan lab leak hypothesis
Item 1) BBC on the
Wuhan lab leak hypothesis concerning COVID-19.
Most of the time since we have the new virus
around I always considered an accidental lab leak the most likely
candidate for the entry of the new virus into the population. And
I always put much much less weight on the possibility it has come
from that food market.
We are now a few years further down the
timeline and for the food market hypothesis to be true there must
be some intermediary animal species that caused the first human
infections. This intermediary animal species has never been found
so as the years go by that weakens and weakens the food market
In my view this lab leak was an accident,
only a person that is mentally ill would do such a leak on
purpose. Please remark this all is not a proof that it was indeed
a leak from the Wuhan lab but it keeps on weaving a pattern that
makes it the most likely candidate.
In the USA the CIA came also out a few days
back they are still looking into the lab leak hypothesis. And that
is a reasonable thing to do.
The video is just a few minutes long, click

In the beginning for a short time I believed
what the scientists initially said: It is from nature, do not
doubt that. Such stuff is known as arguments from authority, the
experts try to convince you they are right for some reason. I
remember arguments like 'There are no lab made changes to the
virus it is all 100% natural'.
I don't know enough about viruses to judge
for myself if the original COVID-19 was 'natural' or 'likely lab
modified'. I also do not say the scientists claiming it had to be
of a natural origin were lying. Likely they had no clue what they
were talking about, just like math professors when they talk about
And what about that other thing that sucks in
conspiracy theories? The bombing of the Nord Stream pipelines?
Today the Americans came out with the view that it is possible it
was not done by Russia but by a 'pro Ukraine group'.
Oh oh my poor brains are working overtime: It
could be true, it could be done by a pro Ukraine group. Yes, after
all the USA is pro Ukraine so it is possible. It is

(03 March 2023) Two items for this
Item 1) Do the economical sanctions against
Item 2) AI generated pics & advertisement for a new 4D complex
Item 1) Do the
economical sanctions against Russia work?
All kinds of people react a bit frustrated
against the IMF who's forecast for the Russian economical growth
is above that of say Brittany. But economies are also living
things and even if you tell them to fall dead on the spot, they
often refuse to do just that.
I have no opinion on the IMF coming out with
a positive growth number for Russia. All in all the IMF should
stay away from political stuff with of course an exception for her
mission: Educate political leaders how to collect taxes and pay
off the debt.
It is very well possible that Russia has a
positive growth number, but that does not say those are healthy
numbers. They had a lot of reserves and without doubt a part of
those reserves are now tapped in order to fund the economy that
more and more is becoming a war economy.
If oil and gas revenues keep being low all in
all this should work as we want it to work. Of course new rounds
of fresh sanctions are always welcome...;)
Further reading on this detail of the
How Russia's economy unexpectedly survived a year of war and sanctions
Of course we must also take into account that
the Russian GDP per capita is not that high. So if their (war)
economy grows by 0.3%, per person that is not much.
Item 2) AI generated
pics & advertisement for a new 4D complex number post.
After a very small internet search within
five minutes I already had two AI generated pictures. It is
amazing for sure what you can do with that kind of stuff. And the
first AI generated porn is there in the form of a website name
I made my two pictures on https://www.aiimagegenerator.org/
and yes it is free but my browser acted a bit strange because you
also get free pop ups with advertisements. For the rest it works
as it is supposed to.
The big problem with all this AI generated
art is that the database used with all those pictures in it,
nobody gave permission for his or her work to be in that database.
And how come that often these AI images are that good? That is
because they are trained on millions of art works from the best
artists. If you would feed those AI's only crap, they will produce
Suppose there would be a math AI and you
simply give it a prompt like the next:
Generate five pages of math on 3D complex
numbers where the importance of matrix representations is
highlighted. Do this in the style of Reinko Venema.
And if such a hypothetical AI would produce
five pages that look almost identical to my own work, I would be a
bit pissed for sure. So I feel definitely some sympathy for all
those artists who's work is now plagiarized on a big scale.
Anyway I used two simple prompts like
"Blue sky over a forest" and "Blue sky over a
mountain" and that gave me the two next pics:
It could have been a photo, you can't tell
the difference here. Anyway I can't.
The math in the next picture was of course not generated by that
AI but by me.
Above you see an example of what you can do
with the 4 dimensional complex numbers. And the 4D complex numbers
are NOT those fucking QUATERNIONS from Hamilton, no it is the 4D
complex number space ruled by it's imaginary component l.
And the fourth power of this imaginary thing gives minus one: l^4
It is a beautiful four dimensional space, but
the math professors as far as I know it, they just don't want it.
They only want 2D complex numbers and of course a bit of the
quaternions and after that all cognitive attention fades away
Being a math professor is a weird job: You
get paid a lot for being non productive at all.
In the math above you see the definition of a
4D complex number and it's square. Also I gave some time dependent
functions a(t) and so. If you differentiate those four so
called coordinate functions, that mimics the square of the 4D
Ok, let me end this anti math professor rant
by remarking that if you are stupid you can also put a positive
tone to it: Wow there is room for improvement!
End of this update.
(01 March 2023) Two small items for this
update, here we go:
Item 1) Is that Russian AWACS out or not?
Item 2) Quaternions and the vector wars.
Item 1) Is that
Russian AWACS out or not?
Yesterday it was reported that inside Belarus
near to Minsk one of those Russian AWACS came under drone attack.
There is of course some form resistance inside Belarus against
that piece of shit that rules that country.
So it is hard to say if it happened, likely
it did but that is far from sure. Those Russian AWACS go for
something like 330 to 500 million € a pop but that is not
important. If severely damaged to the point of no repair, if the
economical sanctions work as supposed they can't replace
This baby seems to be capable of tracking 60
targets simultaneously. Sometimes I wonder why Russians are so
strange: They can design and build their own form of an AWACS but
failed at say night vision goggles.
At last a photo of what I usually avoid:
Wounded people. It is not that I neglect that, but I am not a big
fan of disaster porn. Just like I post some destroyed buildings
but don't do that all the time. But if there is war, people get
wounded and killed. That is a small detail you must never forget
my dear reader.
Let me show you the two conflicting reports
of the Russian AWACS stuff:
Belarus partisans say they blew up Russian plane near Minsk
Belarus official says claim activists blew up Russian spy plane near Minsk is fake
It's late so lets go to the next item.
Item 2) Quaternions
and the vector wars.
On 03 Feb I showed you one of those "Quaternions
are fantastic" video's as they are out there. And don't get
me wrong; quaternions have a significant importance because you
can use them to describe rotations in 3D space.
Now rotations in space have the property that
the order of the rotations matters a lot, math people say that
they don't commute. The relation between these 4D numbers and
rotations is not very trivial but once you have it correctly in
your computer code you can do all rotations you need in say a
It is not much of a secret that I found the
3D and even the 4D complex number systems, but I never got any
significant response from the math community. So I got a little
bit pissed at those overpaid people, or should I not have reacted
Well even the discovery of the 4D numbers
known as the quaternions gave rise to tremendous amounts of
emotion. Back in the time when you were talking about 4D space you
were precisely the lunatic as I am today talking about 3D complex
numbers. It makes you wonder why were they so emotional? Here is a
Hamilton’s disciples labeled the new system a “monster,” while vector fans disparaged the quaternions as “vexatious” and an “unmixed evil.” The debate raged for years in the pages of journals and pamphlets, but ease of use eventually carried vectors to victory.
Comment: As you see when it comes to higher dimensional numbers,
most math professors are dumb as hell.
The quote is from a very readable article,
with readable I mean also a non mathy person understands more or
less what it is about. Here it is:

End of this update, see you around.
(24 Feb 2023) Today a bit of strange news
came floating around: It seems that about 90% of the Russian
conscripts are deployed at the front line. You might think so what
but take for example the Vietnam war; for every combat soldier
there were about 10 others working in the background just to
support the front line soldiers.
Today I would like to skip items about the
war and turn to artificial intelligence again because the
developments still go fast and furious over there.
Item 1) ChatGPT bad at math & Leonardo AI
has some tricks in it's sleeve.
Item 1) ChatGPT bad
at math & Leonardo AI has some tricks in it's sleeve.
It must be frustrating to works in a creative
job these day. Jobs like drawing or animation can much cheaper be
done by some AI like that Midjourney or Leonardo stuff. It is
indeed amazing to see a prompt you type in being turned into
But can the same happen to say mathematics? I
don't think those present language models will be good at math.
Often a piece of math is just plain wrong if there is only a tiny
fault in it. And those present language models are not married to
the truth but married to what is likely the next word.
And by definition that is a bad way to do
math. But who knows may be there are learning algorithms that
start proving simple math statements and after that get trained on
more and more complicated math propositions until it is above
human intelligence. That would be a very strange
I chatted two times with that ChatGPT version
that is not online, it's the one trained on a big heap of internet
text until the year 2021. So I asked:
Reinko: Have you ever heard of three dimensional complex numbers?
ChatGPT: Yes, I have heard of 3-dimensional complex numbers. They are also known as quaternions, a non-commutative extension of complex numbers to four dimensions. Quaternions were first introduced by Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton in 1843 and have found applications in various fields, including computer graphics, robotics, and navigation.
The answer shows this chatbot is clearly not
trained on the text of any of my websites. May be the answer from
ChatGPT looks plain wrong because quaternions are four dimensional
numbers made from three complex planes that share their real axis.
So the answer is not as close to the truth as possible but more a
summary of what is historically written about the quaternions.
Reinko: Have you ever heard of four dimensional complex numbers?
ChatGPT: No, I haven't heard of four-dimensional complex numbers. Complex numbers are a two-dimensional extension of real numbers, so there is no such thing as four-dimensional complex numbers in the traditional sense.
The answer shows that when it comes to
complex numbers this system ChatGPT is dumb as hell. Even dumber
than the average math professor. It is just a language thing but
it sure is impressive. There is no denying that.
Microsoft invested about 10 billion US$ into
OpenAI and now has access to these versions of the language models
and at present day tries to incorporate them with their search
So may be in the future if you search for 3D
complex numbers on Bing it will be different. But I would like to
thank Microsoft for their many years of help in promoting my 3D
complex numbers. Here is a screenshot of what I mean, if you
search for 3D complex numbers right in the left upper top it
I think I wrote the above text in 2012, may
be I should repeat it more because that is the most simple way to
explain the 3D complex numbers. But the math professors keep on
being not very cooperative, why this is is unknown to me. One
thing is clear: Microsoft has helped me much much more as that
miserable form of life known as the math professors... THEREFORE:
If you really need a laugh, try searching for
3D complex numbers on the images at the Bing search engine. That
is so much of my work completely dominating all things else that
even I am opposed to it. Other voices should be heard too say the
democratic parts of my brain. But if you think about that, what
fucking contribution will there be from the universities? If you
lack brains you can't talk back in a meaningful way I just
One of the new things into that graphics
generating stuff is Leonardo AI. You can feed it a relatively
small picture and gradually expand it into other directions. It is
beautiful, in the screenshots below you see the expansion at work.

(22 Feb 2023) Precisely 52 weeks I made an
extra update on this website. That was very out of the ordinary
because for years I only posted some stuff on Thursdays and left
the week for other hobby's. It was a few hours before the invasion
of Ukraine by Russia, the title of that 52 week old item was
"Has the Vlad gone crazy?"
And yes, now their daily death toll is almost
one thousand a day we can safely conclude that the Vlad was rather
mental when he ordered the Russian military to attack
May be in this second year I will more and
more skip the Tuesday updates, I don't know because after all
there is always plenty of news.
Today was the speech from Vladimir Putin,
after about 20 minutes I had enough of it. But it was very
refreshing to hear from the Vlad himself that before the special
military action there were biolabs from the USA in Ukraine. So
after a year we can indeed safely conclude that the Vlad has
mental problems and as such a limited grasp on reality.
Of course there is the possibility that this biolab stuff is only
for internal use where everybody knows it's not true, but I am not
convinced this is the case.
And when after about 20 minutes he began lamentating about pedophiles
and homophiles that rule Europe it was time for me to move
Two items for today:
Item 1) Joe Biden visits Kyiv and Poland.
Item 2) Economist Jeffrey Sachs on the Nord Stream sabotage.
Item 1) Joe Biden
visits Kyiv and Poland.
The Kyiv visit was indeed a surprise visit
showing once more that the protections against Russian air power
is indeed rather good. The problem is of course you can't protect
the entire Ukraine with this, Ukraine is just too large for that.
The lower photo is relatively good, you can
see the reflection of Zerlensky in the sunglasses of Joe Biden. As
usual when you visit you bring a few gifts, this time it was
something like half a billion in military aid.
Lets go to the next item.
Item 2) Economist
Jeffrey Sachs on the Nord Stream sabotage.
For me this video gave me a strange feeling;
I am not used at the fact that people can agree with me...;) For
example why are there no physics professors saying that indeed the
idea that electrons are tiny magnets is indeed 100% bullshit.
There are so many reasons for this, if in chemical bonds the
electrons in every electron pair must be anti-aligned, that means
they have to bond via north pole to north pole binding or south
pole to south pole. But year in year out they keep on talking like
electron spin is a tiny magnet. Physics is a science beyond
repair, if they hear something might be wrong just nothing
And I am used to that, it is the same as the math professors who
are at best a collection of fossils, if they are living fossils is
unknown to me.
Now Jeffrey is of the opinion that likely it
was the USA that did the bombing of the Nord Stream pipelines back
in Sept last year. But he is also making a big fuss about the CIA
doing all kinds of covert operations and always killing people and
blowing stuff to smithereens on foreign soil.
And yes over the last five decades they have
done some amazingly weird stuff, I will not deny that. But, as far
as I know, they never tried to kill me. So in the last decade my
old anti-Americanism has come down significantly. And all in all
during the first decade of the war on terror I was able to bring
some significant damage to the USA, yet all those years there was
never a CIA operation to kill me.
I still appreciate that a lot my dear USA
readers, it brings a lot of piece to your mind if you don't have
to constantly worry any longer about attacks against
Another point I disagree with Jeffrey Sachs
is the way he talks about expansion of NATO. In my view this is
not a very aggressive policy or so, it is just some countries like
those in east Europe they want to join because it brings
Ok ok back in the nineties NATO countries
promised not to expand eastwards towards Russia, that promise is
clearly not hold by those countries. On the other hand Russia does
the same because when Ukraine gave up her nukes it was also Russia
that guaranteed the safety of Ukraine.
It all hasn't worked out the way it was
supposed to be and now we have the Vlad talking about biolabs in
Ukraine and pedophiles running NATO or the EU as some vague way to
justify his military adventures.
In this world there is never a shortage of

Thursday and if you see some biolabs popping up in France or
Poland, please inform the Russian government...
(17 Feb 2023) Tanks! Germany is rightfully
complaining that only 50 tanks have been promised by other
European countries. Of course they are a little bit pissed because
just a few weeks ago there was all that pressure on Germany to do
'something' on the tank front and now this.
So why are countries not forthcoming? Well it
could be that a lot of political folks took a deep look at what
they had and all of a sudden realized they don't have that much
military gear at all. Don't forget a lot of armies are underfunded
for a lot of years, that was the so called peace
If it wasn't that serious it would be very
funny. After all politicians complaining about other politicians
is more or less their job description... I guess all I can do is
wait and hope for a few more admissions. In my country it is also
a pile of garbage: We only lease 18 Leopards so we don't even own
them. So likely it is tough for other nations too.
The two items for today are:
Item 1) Seymour Hersh interviewed on
Item 2) Advertisement for the latest math post.
Item 1) Seymour Hersh
interviewed on Democracy Now.
The whodunnit on the sabotage against the
Nord Stream pipelines will likely continue a bit longer. Seymour
was interviewed on Democracy Now, for the USA this is a very left
leaning media outlet. You know lefties telling you that war is bad
for the economy and lots of people die for no reason at all.
Try explain that to the Russians, they are
even deaf for the language of the coffins. Last week they had
daily death toll averages of something like 850 so I am softly
humming with satisfaction.
But back to the Nord Stream stuff: The day it
happened I sucked in all the information available at that moment
and later in the day I tried to guesstimate whodunnit. After 2 or
3 minutes of time I arrived at the conclusion it was likely
So why not Russia? Well Putin is a control
freak and if somehow there was still gas streaming he is the one
that can control the amount of gas through it. If Russia would
blow up their own pipeline this kind of control would be lost. So
for a control freak like Putin this all is not a logical thing to
Another detail of interest is that I believe
it was Denmark who after a few weeks said they would not share
their findings because of 'national security concerns'. That was
And now we have Seymour telling us it was
done with cooperation of Norway I remembered that Norway all of a
sudden very frantic started to guard their own oil and gas
infrastructure. At the time I did not understand why they were so
frantic, now we can say that if the Seymour version of reality
bears some truth may be the higher echelons in Norway were afraid
of a counter attack. They had a 'bad conscience' so to say.

In my view there are also reasons as not to
suspect a main European culprit; we have learned the hard was it
is better to not attack each other. In this regard if it all is
true the behavior of Norway is a statistical outlier.
Joe Biden wasn't the only USA official
bragging they would take it out before the war started almost one
year ago. On themselves details like this do not prove the
whodunnit but it all weaves a pattern that points to the USA as
the main culprit.
So that's what I think on this detail.
Item 2) Advertisement
for the latest math post.
My latest post on the other website is about
the 'Speed = The Square' type of equations. What does that mean?
Well it is not physics but more or less pure math where you study
how a space evolves if at every point in that space the speed of
that point is the square of the position.
So the place of the origin is very important
for the behavior of a point, that is not a very physical thing. In
physics the choice of a coordinate system should not influence the
Below you see the three coordinate functions
of a curve in the three dimensional complex number space. And if
you want to find the speed of such a point you must find the
derivative with respect to time.
If you do that you will find that at any
point on this curve the speed is the square of the position in the
3D complex number space. The x, y and z with a dot above them is
just a way of writing down the derivative with respect to time in
a compact manner. If you have never seen it, it is called the
Newton dot notation. It is just a notation, but it is from Newton
and that was not a lunatic as far as I know...
Title of the new post: Solving the ‘Speed = The Square’ equation on four different
spaces. Link used:
On the internet I could not find anything
about equations like this. Have the math professors once more
succeeded into slamming this world into stupidity? It very much
looks like it...
Lets leave it with that and try to upload
this stuff to the website.
See you around & thanks for your attention.
(15 Feb 2023) Somewhere in Turkey right
through some olive orchard a giant crater emerged. It is
completely unbelievable what happened over there. A geologist
explained that the maximum horizontal acceleration of the earth
was a staggering 8 m/s^2 or 0.8 of the gravitational acceleration
constant g... Those were gigantic forces!

Two items for today:
Item 1) Ukraine wants F16's from my
Item 2) Seymour Hersh on the Nord Stream 1 & 2 sabotage.
Item 1) Ukraine wants
F16's from my country.
Last week the news emerged that Ukraine wants
F16's from my home country. Of course that is not up to me to
decide but for our government to decide yes or no. But if I could
vote on the matter I think I would vote yes.
I have no idea how to solve all these
logistic problems related to repair and maintenance, just like
with those tanks you need a good working maintenance team. And the
Ukrainians must do that themselves, it can't be there are all
kinds of Dutch military maintenance workers doing all the
But if it all succeeds and even if say the
F16's are only operational 50% of the time, I still estimate it is
Of course there are the standard boundary
conditions like you can only use them inside Ukraine in the course
of this war. In case my government decides to not only lend them
out but to give them away, in case of a future war there must be
again permission to use them inside Russia.
That is not to hinder any possible
application of F16 air power, it is more that we can shout in some
future year stuff like:
YES BOMB THE HELL OUT OF THAT RUSSIAN SHIT!
All jokes aside, lets give it a try. Anyway
that is what I would vote for...
Item 2) Seymour Hersh
on the Nord Stream 1 & 2 sabotage.
Last September when the Nord Stream pipelines
were bombed into insignificance of course at some point in time on
that day I started trying to guess who had done this. After about
2 or 3 minutes I arrived at the conclusion that the most likely
candidate was the USA.
Last week the US journalist Seymour Hersh
came out with an article stating it was indeed the USA but that
also there is some involvement of Norway when it came to the
precise target selection.
In general the US media completely ignores
the writing of Seymour, at best they remark it is only based on
one anonymous (human) source. I agree with such an approach; after
it was only one silly clerk named Einstein who said something on
gravity. It is only one guy that says something, you can neglect
In this item I want to show you two video's
with opposite reactions to the Seymour Hersh article. Here we go:
Video 1: Combat Veteran Reacts explains the
broad credibility Seymour has with stuff like reporting the Mai
Lay massacre from the Vietnam era. It all speaks for itself:

Hora? 12FEB Daily.

Video 2: If I remember his name correctly it
is Puck Anders Nielsen and likely he is from Denmark. Now Puck is
far more intellectually challenging because he always has some
military theory of why stuff is such or so.
From the beginning Puck thought it was Russia
that did it. I disagree with this, not because I do not like
Puck's theoretical contributions but because it neglects the fact
that Putin is a control freak. Therefore I consider it unlikely
that the Kremlin ordered for the take down of the Nord Stream
pipelines, he would loose control over the gas supply to Europe in

By the way, if the USA did indeed do this
there are no hard feelings on my personal behalf. We had to cut
Russian gas anyway but the act of sabotaging the Nord Steam
pipelines is not the kind of help we are waiting for.
At last a link to Seymour his writing, I
still did not have the time to read it all because it is so long.
May be that is another reason US media are not reacting to it:
They like to be on Tik Tok or so.
How America Took Out The Nord Stream

End of this update. Think well and learn well
my dear reader.
(10 Feb 2023) Oh oh those poor Turks, death
count keeps on climbing and I had not even the time to look into
the geological details of why this is such a big
On so many scales this is a giant set back
for Turkey, look for example at this old castle from the second
It is late already so lets go fast to the two
items for today:
Item 1) Finally the first day with over one
thousand Russian deaths; praise the Lord!
Item 2) Yes yes ChatGPT is impressive, but can it master math?
Item 1) Finally the
first day with over one thousand Russian deaths; praise the Lord!
Some time ago when the Kremlin plans became
clear I wrote stuff like "LET THE SLAUGHTER BEGIN!" Of
course it was only waiting until the first day with over one
thousand Russian soldiers would be there.
Of course new years eve with about 610 dead
Russians in one strike was very beautiful but it was not over one
thousand. Since over there at the Kremlin they are persistently
stupid they think they can win it with more and more untrained
conscripts and convicts.
Of course because the Kremlin is so stupid,
shall I ask for so called area bombs for the Ukrainians? I have
been thinking about that on and off for about three months. And I
am still so unsure if that is a wise thing to ask for.
On the other hand Ukrainians always do their stinking best to not
kill their fellow country people and of course in the future we
need days like 2000 or 2500+ killed per day.
If I were a commander of say the Dutch
military forces and looking at stuff like a thousand deaths a day,
I would consider surrendering. Yet at the Kremlin they are crazy
to the bone, they don't give a shit about their own death toll so
now I can say:
UPSCALE THE SLAUTHER!
The photo above is very interesting: Is this
one of the assisted ammo rounds? The Russians don't have stuff
like that because they are crazy. And if you are crazy anyway, why
would you need ammo like that? Come on a fresh bottle of Vodka is
all it keeps to make any Russian tranquil & obedient...
Let's go to the next item.
Item 2) Yes yes
ChatGPT is impressive, but can it master math? Likely nope.
There is all that buzz of this new language
model named ChatGPT. And all those people talk about it has 175
billion parameters. And as such they compare it to models with
only 15 or 20 billion parameters, conclude that it is bigger but
never ever try to explain what a 'parameter' actually is.
Why are humans always so shallow?
It is just like physics students or
professors when they talk about electron spin: It is a vector that
can point into any direction but it is only spin up or spin down.
If you complain this is all not very logical at any level because
they will remark: "If you think you understand quantum
mechanics, you don't understand quantum mechanics".
And ok, if your stupid spin theory forces you
to say that in chemical bonds the electron pair must have opposite
spin, so you are marketing the idea that molecules hang together
via tiny magnets that bond north to north pole, it is obvious
nobody can understand quantum mechanics.
If you view electrons as magnetic monopoles
you don't have this kind of weird stuff, but at the universities
they are stupid too. Why do university people never understand
they talk nonsense?
Back to ChatGPT: Yes it is impressive but as
I view it, it is just as impressive as my old Casio fx-82
calculator that can do many calculations for you in seconds where
it would you take hours of work. It's more of the same we already
Let me close this update with a picture where
you see the good old Mandelbrot set and in it are two coordinate
functions that if you differentiate them, they will return the
square in the complex plane. I don't see any GPT model coming up
with stuff like that anytime soon...
End of this update, ChatGPT can you tell me
how to keep the number of killed Russians above one thousand a day
for the foreseeable future?
