-Dring dring, there the door bell goes. Reinko opens the door and it is Arty! Hey come on in Reinko says. 

Arty: Shit man, all these years you let me dry out in the beautiful Afhganistan landscape and now I must come here to eat cookies?

-Reinko: Oh, you got the message wrong: In this country it is illegal to send so called cookies along with your website. 

But I cannot control the cookies my dear Arty, that problem is around for many years: 
Visitors get a cookie, but it is not done by  me... .

Arty (looking difficult): So what do we need to do?

-Reinko: We must eat the cookies before they eat us..

 Arty (smiling): Ok ok, I have to go back to my home country, so bye bye

(30 Sept 2022) It feels like the chaos is only increasing and there is little you can do to bow that around. Week in week out it goes from crazy to worse. Yet I still refrain to pen down some simple rules for the use of tactical nuclear ammo. May be I am a coward, may be the world is still not crazy enough...  

The whodunnit related to the attacks on Nordstream 1 & 2 is still in full swing. I only want to remark that all reasons people come up with that it must be Russia because of this or that are not very convincing to me. On the other hand Russia is doing month in month out things that other people consider not very logical or consistent. 

Two items for today: 

Item 1) The UK bond market meltdown & Dutch central bank going bankrupt???
Item 2) First Russian draftee already surrendered & fun with tampons!

 Item 1) The UK bond market meltdown & Dutch central bank going bankrupt???

It all started with the mini budget from Friday last week as presented in the UK lower house of parliament. Tax cuts that benefit the highest incomes five times as much as tax benefits for the lowest tiers. And you won't believe it: 

 THESE TAX CUTS WILL PAY FOR THEMSELVES!

The last time we observed that mumbo jumbo was when donald trump was the US prez and like usual it never ever "pays for itself". A lot of other people too thought stuff like that raising questions about the sustainability of the UK government debt.

After all most skilled financial people understand that when you hear the phrase "tax cuts will pay for themselves" you instantly understand such a person does understand the underlying math. Let alone calculate how much the economy must grow before it has "pays for itself".

Anyway, in the UK government bonds are called gilts and you always see yield graphs of them and not the actual prices. But the upswing in yield on gilts is truly dramatic. In the next picture the blue line is the 5 year gult and that red disaster is some basket of stuff that supposedly was a safe investment.

The vertical striped line is the mini budget announcement... 

It seems that UK pension funds are allowed to be leveraged up to their teeth, after all they are professionals so what can possibly go wrong? Well they got all kinds of margin calls from all that money they borrowed and had to sell all juice that was sellable... Hasta la vista baby! 

__________ 

In my own country our central bank came out with the pleasant remark they could go broke in a year or two. Why is that?

After the financial crisis the central banks began buying large quantities of government bonds. I was hefty against it because the volume of buying was so large that it was possible that central banks go bankrupt. And that is a situation that is not desirable.

Anyway now we have a serious rout of inflation, all those bonds bought at elevated prices don't return much income while the outlays for the central bank rise because commercial banks have to park their money overnight at the central bank and now interest rates are on the rise...

Quantitive easing: What can go wrong? We are the central bankers, we are professional who understand what we are doing! But if your bond holdings only vaporize in value again: what could go wrong?

 Item 2) First Russian draftee already surrendered & fun with tampons!

With an amazing speed the first of the new Russian draftees has surrendered himself to the Ukrainians. The guy was drafted only about six days ago and already popped up on the front in six days time.

We can safely conclude that inside Russia it is getting more and more chaotic and there is not much the Kremlin can do about it because the chaos is of there own making.  

The Russian state television makes great contributions by telling the people that all those idiots that make such a mess of the mobilization should be send to the front themselves. And the supreme leader has nothing to do with this chaos. Yes, Putin was named the supreme leader. 

It makes you wonder if our Putina is soo supreme, why is it such a chaos. After all our supreme intellect has been planning this special military operation for years and years... In my view this is a supreme shitshow and not much more. In that sense the mobilization is a good thing: more and more Russians understand the depth of the 'shit' in this shitshow.

Anyway from getting the draft paper to surrender was only six days or so for this guy: 

 

Russian soldiers get the advice to take with them cheap tampons. And they must buy it for themselves. Why would Russian male soldiers tampons that are designed for a non-male kind of problem? Well if they get shot and put a tampon in the shot would, the tampon will swell up and stop the bleeding.

So the Russian military forces can't even pay for a few tampons for every new draftee, for every new conscript? The chaos it is spreading more and more and what can you do? Here is a female Russian medic throwing in her 50 cent of medical wisdom:

 

The above two pictures came from screenshots from the next video from Jake Broe (Don't follow Jake's investment advice but he is a nice chap anyway):

Mobilized Soldiers are Already Surrendering in Ukraine
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OSroys7RWY 

That's it for this update. Please don't get confused by the chaos! 

 

(28 Sept 2022) Two short items for today because it is already so late... 

Item 1) Nordstream attacks, Russian mobilization, etc etc.
Item 2) Quantum Bell state for two electrons: mumbo jumbo or is it something?

 Item 1) Nordstream attacks, Russian mobilization, etc etc.

Never a dull day, today it emerged that the Nordstream 1 & 2 came under attack. In my view there is only one party or country that has done this. But I am not gonna say, nope... 

__________ 

The Russian call to mobilization was a perfect example of how it goes so often over there at the Kremlin: Putin stating it will be a partial mobilization and only qualified and classified reserves will be called to serve this noble military operation. Now within a few hours in stuff like the metro police officers hand out military draft notices to whoever they can lay there hands on.
So often if weird stuff like this was observed in relation to the war in Ukraine, like the Bucha stuff and more recent those torture chambers, always the Kremlin doubles down on their obvious nonsense. But this time they could not do it because the Russian population might be stupid but they are not that stupid...

If you see videos of those new draftees saying goodbye to their families, I never see anybody walking around with those Z-logo tshirts. Where are those braggers now? 

__________ 

Those high speed referenda are very interesting. I have never seen soldiers accompanied with vote collectors going door to door and collect votes. In my view there is a tiny problem with these referenda: Isn't stuff like that only legal if this referendum was held in the entire Ukraine?   

It seems that the Russians want to annex it with high speed and after that throw their nuclear umbrella over their new territory.  

Originally I planned to write and post a few simple rules on using nuclear ammo in say the standard howitzer. For the time being I refrain, sorry. After all the Nordstream attacks are a perfect distraction. 

 

From the realm of madness we go to the realm of quantum madness in the next item.  

 Item 2) Quantum Bell state for two electrons: mumbo jumbo or is it something?

I could not find back that video where some quantum computing weirdo was explaining a beautiful process: 

An electron was prepared in a super position of spin up and spin down.
This electron was in some exited state of an atom.
After that the electron could fall down to a lower energy state landing in either the spin up state or spin down state for that lower energy level... 

In my view where electrons are magnetic monopoles, it is very hard for any electron to be in a superposition of spin up and down. That is just mumbo jumbo.

In this universe the most simple atom is atomic hydrogen. Atomic hydrogen is made of one proton and one electron with opposite electric charges. So every hydrogen atom is a small quantum mechanical system. But do we say that a hydrogen atom is made up of two quantum particles that are both in a superposition of being an electron or a proton? 

Any reasonable person would say that it is very unlikely for a quantum particle to be in a mixed state of being an electron or a proton. A reasonable person would say this is mumbo jumbo.

But when it comes to electron spin, the professional physics professors have no trouble at all in selling this mumbo jumbo as some form of 'advanced and subtle science'.

And one by one those weirdo's are too stupid anyway to find say the 3D complex number system. They even don't have any experimental proof that the electron is a 'tiny magnet', they don't have a proof that every electron is the same, they don't have a proof that electrons are not magnetic monopoles...

I found another video that is stupid enough to share with you, it is about entanglement and stuff like Bell states for electrons.

I think it is time to split my dear reader. Till updates. 

 

(23 Sept 2022) Now my dear Kremlin what a fuss about nuke stuff all of a sudden! Why is that? The last time there was talk about nuke stuff was a few months ago and as such I just thought "May be it would be handy if we have howitzers inside Ukraine". 

So I started writing like wouldn't it be a great idea if the Ukrainians have howitzers? And a lot of people thought that was a good idea too so as fast as possible they were delivered to Ukraine. Howitzers can also shoot nuclear ammo, that could be handy in the future. 

The Kremlin did not complain at all, on the contrary I have observed Putin stating that "It is all a bit more of the same." So there was no problem with that at the Kremlin, I considered them good sports guys. 

Later there were some vague reports that nuke ammo was delivered, the Ukrainians that spoke about it were a bit laughing like they really thought it was a mistake. Of course you can't talk about that in the Media files but anyway. 

And now we have this; the Kremlin talking about nuke stuff again.
I don't know what to think about it, the Vlad even says that he is "not bluffing".
That is very interesting, but I have never ever been bluffing the last months on this detail. Right now there are dozens and dozens of so called 'NATO installations' inside Ukraine that if needed can fire tactical nuclear bombs...  

Sometimes I wonder how the information processing goes at the Kremlin, do they have a clue about what is going on yes or no? Often it is just a big NO. 

__________ 

Today's item is about the Schrödinger equation because likely already for the Helium atom it all goes wrong (if my ideas about electron spin are correct, already for Helium it goes wrong...). 

Item 1) Parth G. on solving the Schrödinger equation.

 Item 1) Parth G. on solving the Schrödinger equation.

Very often this equation is very hard to solve and when it gets complicated only numerical approximations can be made. Why is it so hard? Well the Schödinger equation contains a so called Hamiltonian that described the energy levels and how they evolve in time.  

Very soon it becomes very complicated.  

Now why is Helium an interesting atom? It is because it has two protons and two electrons. The official theory is that both electrons must have opposite spins but as you see in the video this detail is one 100% neglected. My theory says electrons are magnetic monopoles and 'opposite spins' means they must carry opposite magnetic charges. 

That makes for a perfect small but already complicated quantum system: the Helium atom where the electric charges between the protons and electrons are attracting and at the same time between the electrons there is repulsion because of the same electric charge and attraction because of the opposite magnetic charge. 

In my view the electron pair can only do it's magical dance around the nucleus because the electrons are both repelling and attracting each other. It is a beautiful idea where the stuff with 'opposite spins' and 'spin is a vector, it has a direction' in instantly served away as garbage. 

Click on the picture for the Youtube video. As you see on inspection at the bottom of the picture, they only take into account the kinetic energy and the potential related to the electric field forces. Nowhere the spin is used so already for the Helium atom the standard model runs from the rails it is supposed to run on...

It becomes all a bit more funny if you realize that the same physics people also promote the idea of quantum computing using electron spin. The poor people of physics: is it that hard to stop thinking about electrons as tiny magnets with two magnetic poles? 

I guess it is.

End of this update, thanks for your attention. 

 

(21 Sept 2022) Oops, a small correction might be needed: It looks like that Reuters report I mentioned in the last update could have a typo in it when it talks about 9000 square km... Anyway the important thing is not to loose newly gained territory for the Ukrainians and that eats up a lot of soldiers.  

In another development an Iranian drone seems to have destroyed one of the US delivered howitzers. These drones come in with high speed and having a payload of 40 kg explosives. So I don't want that on my head or so...
Of course it is a pity that the Iranians did deliver this to the Russians, I don't think this is a moral thing to do. Well despite all I would like to compliment the Iranians with the improvement they made over the years. 

Two items for today's update: 

Item 1) Will the Russian Federation break apart? (Ben Hodges.)
Item 2) The quantum computing bubble.

 Item 1) Will the Russian Federation break apart? (Ben Hodges.)

That is a very interesting question just like for example "Will the US$ loose her status as a reserve currency?" The second question is rather easy to answer: For the time being the US$ will keep on being the global reserve currency because of TINA (= There Is No Alternative.

There are a lot of reasons that there will be more turmoil inside the Russian Federation. It depends in a large part on how dissatisfied the other parts are with Moscow.  

Some reports of conflicts between parts of the Federation are already there. And even weird reports from inside Ukraine where sometimes different factions of the occupying forces seem to shoot at each other. And they now have those 'volunteer battalions' made up of ethnic groups so if now say a bunch of Chechens also get the command of say a few platoons of other ethnicity guess what happens? Yes you are correct: The other ethnicities always go first into battle...

I never studied it in detail but a lot of wealth in Russia is concentrated in Moscow and the surrounding regions. And if the other parts never have any prospect of getting a bit more of the economical pie, of course that causes some resentment. 

Anyway on a Youtube channel with the highly exiting name Renew Democracy Initiative a former NATO commander gives his views. I agree in large lines with his line of reasoning. Click on the picture for the video:

 Item 2) The quantum computing bubble.

A few years back, say in 2015 or so when I started the other website on 3D complex numbers, at first I was very positive about quantum computing. In the theory about that stuff they use a lot of the so called complex exponential and because I had found a lot new complex exponentials I was willing to give it a try.

Later I became much more hesitant because those quantum computing people put all kinds of things into superposition and it makes you wonder if that can be done. For example they claim that electrons can be in a super position of spin up and spin down. Even stronger: In an electron pair it is claimed that both electrons are in such a superposition...

If I would make a guesstimate all quantum computing based on electron spin will never work because likely electrons are magnetic monopoles and this magnetic charge is permanent. Please remark that all those physics people don't have any experimental evidence at all that their version of electron spin is correct.

It is one of the basics of quantum mechanics that you can make such super positions of properties of quantum particles. But if you measure those properties you always get just one of the possible answers. So you can just never check if such a particle was actually in such a super position. The implication are funny: If that postulate of quantum mechanics is just not true, in that case no form of quantum computing will ever work...

 

The Financial Times of all places has a nice article about it:

Title: The quantum computing bubble
https://www.ft.com/content/6d2e34ab-f9fd-4041-8a96-91802bab7765
  

And yes there is a lot of crap out there: I too feel annoyed by those sales type people trying to hype quantum computing. You notice it instantly if you are listening to one of those sales nutjobs; they always talk about discovering new drugs and medicines. It is never explained how this should work but hey if you give them a few millions they will do their stinking best...

May be in thousands and thousands of years when people finally figured out that electrons are not 'tiny magnets', that will help much more in understanding chemical bonds and most of all: electron transport in living tissue... 

That was it for this update, I wish the Ukrainian soldiers good luck and for all of you thnx for your attention. Till updates.  

 

(16 Sept 2022) The EU is designing a windfall tax for energy companies with 'too large' profits. You can think of stuff like electricity generated with renewables and sold for prices related to gas and oil. Or may be more to gas because that is the largest problem right now. 

I am often a bit hesitant when it comes to large scale government intervention in the economy like now the energy part of the economy. On the other hand these are just not normal times, so why not? It's only about 140 billion € so this is not like a new financial crisis or so... 

The windfall tax is a perfect lesson for Shell; lately their head quarters left for London and often it was heard that our dividend tax was the main culprit in chasing Shell away to London where there is no such tax. Back then I already joked that if needed a local government will find other ways to tax you if that money is needed. Yeah this is a good lesson for Shell. 

In the past in my country the gas prices were pegged to the price of oil. That was a way of ensuring that if you heated your house with oil or with gas, there were no fluctuations between them. If oil was cheap so was gas and if oil was expensive so was gas.  

Lets dive into our item for today: 

Item 1) Wow, already 9000 square km liberated in Sept in Ukraine?

 Item 1) Wow, already 9000 square km liberated in Sept in Ukraine?

A few hours back Reuters reported the 9000 number, I did not save the link but they reported it. One week ago the counter stood at say one thousand square km so it is still going fast and furious. 

At some point in time you think this has to stop. After all you need soldiers for the border with Russia, you need soldiers to move the found ammo because the large piles are known to the Russians and as such targets for future attacks. And so on and so on. 

It is amazing and once more I with the Ukrainian armed forces GOOD LUCK. 

A lot of villages are liberated and it is heart warming to see video's like this: 

 

They just want to give a hug to their liberators. Of course that is logical, who wants to live under control of the Russian military?  

Now thousand of noteworthy things happened but I only post this weird picture of recruitment of prisoners who can fight six months in Ukraine and after that are free.  

 

I am sure these guys will make fantastic soldiers...

At last I want to remark AMMO AMMO AMMO! No not Russian ammo because the Ukrainians now have much of the stock of the occupiers. I mean ammo for the weaponry as given by the peace loving democracies.

It is just a detail, but after it became known that Ukraine was receiving those Vulcano rounds for howitzers the USA also threw in a cute stone like the Excalibur rounds. The Excalibur has a slightly shorter range like 60 km or so where the Vulcano is more or less equivalent to the reach of the HIMARS systems.

I have limited insight in how much our modern weaponry has helped the fast and furious progress made by the Ukrainian armed forces, with a little smile on my face I can honestly say I don't know why the Russians are so panicked so easily...

May be this is a good time to split my dear reader. Thanks for your attention.  

 

(14 Sept 2022) When I couple of updates ago I wrote about 'fast and furious' stuff I was talking about developments in artificial intelligence. Not about the speed the Ukrainian army moves over the temporary occupied regions...   

It's not going bad, so my estimate is that we are looking at some good military expansion as I name military growth like that. At this point in time about 6000 square km are won over Russia in not that many days, one analyst said the Ukrainians move at about 20 km a day where the Russians previously did about 1 km a day.
So we can indeed talk about 'fast and furious'.

 Item 1) Are we looking at a successful military expansion in Ukraine?
 Item 2) Was the Frisch-Segrè experiment a failure? YEP! 

 Item 1) Are we looking at a successful military expansion in Ukraine?

In the first place congratulations with the developments in the last days! It has been remarkable and great to watch... 

But I want to talk a bit about military expansion. There go a lot of things into that, for example if there is no military hardware enough, it will not happen. Today I want to look a bit at the 'learning side' of the humans that make up the Ukrainian armed forces.  

Six months ago a lot of them were musicians, people working in industrial job, teachers, students, nurses and so on and so on. So they have learned a lot in six months of time. 

Now every time you learn new stuff, all kinds of new pathways in your brain form and if you really have learned new stuff after that you think a little bit different. Take for example math, you can learn only so much math on a given day. That has a simple biological explanation: your brain gets tired from making all these new connections. That is why you need sleep and dreams; beside sleep cleans the brain from the garbage built up during the time you are awake, it also makes those new pathways in your brain better. 

But if you have bad sleep because for example there is constant shelling in your neighborhood, you will learn much much less day to day. 

In my view the amount of learning done by the humans that make up the Ukrainian army is almost the maximum of what is humanly possible. So that is good but before there is a solid standing army over there a lot of more learning has to be done. And only after that Russia will understand for at least a few decades it is better not to attack Ukraine again. 

So far for the 'brain part' of my beloved Ukrainian fighters. 

From the deep state map you can see it goes indeed fast and furious: 

 

Another detail I would like to stress again is always try to keep as close to the truth as possible. Ok, there is now an information embargo in Ukraine for all the right reasons, but I remarked once that the party that stays close to the truth will likely win this war.  

Of course there could be other reasons Ukraine could be not victorious in the end, but if you deviate away from being truthful that eats away military capabilities big time. If there is all kinds of disinformation going round, nobody understands how to behave to make progress in the war effort. See for example all that nonsense on the Russian state television. If you are a Russian soldier looking mostly at Russian state television and you are send to Ukraine, you don't know how to behave in order to achieve victory for Russia.

A military analyst Ben Hodges remarked that the flow of information in the entire Russian army from the bottom to the top has serious flaws. And if the top brass don't get information that is accurate as possible, that is where everybody lives in some kind of weird bubble like in: 

 

All in all Russia does not understand how to deal with bad news, that is why they likely will loose it...

 Item 2) Was the Frisch-Segrè experiment a failure? YEP! 

In my own little effort to try explain why electrons can't be 'tiny magnets' but simply must be magnetic monopoles, I made a tiny tactical win:

I often suspected that Albert Einstein did not understand that it is not logical to view the electron as a magnetic dipole. After all Stern was his first assistant so he must have thought about the results of the Stern-Gerlach experiment. 

Why all those weirdo's like Einstein, Feyman, Pauli, and so on never entertained the idea of electrons being magnetic monopoles is unknown to me. May be that is a weak spot of how the human mind works, I don't know. 

But I have two funny quotes for you, the first one is from Feynman: 

The significance of the Stern–Gerlach experiment and relevant works are detailed in a 2016 inspiring review, concluding that “The physical mechanism responsible for the alignment of the silver atoms remained and remains a mystery” and quoting Feynman, “… instead of trying to give you a theoretical explanation, we will just say that you are stuck with the result of this experiment … ” 

Comment: Hey weirdo's from the universities, why not try to use the 'electron is a magnetic charge' model'? Quote two confirming Einstein had his fingers deep into that failed Frisch-Segrè experiment:

A year later, Frisch and Segrè modified the same apparatus by adopting Einstein’s suggestion on the use of a single wire instead of three electromagnets to rotate spin; they also improved magnetic shielding, slit filtering, and signal detection. 

The source of the quotes is a pdf from the preprint archive:

That was it for this update. Thanks for your attention and good luck with the formation of new pathways in your own human brain. And ok ok, may be kill a few more Russians may be please? 

 

(09 Sept 2022) Queen Elizabeth has passed away, condolences to the UK. Even in my own country most people view Elizabeth as a 'good queen' and yes the UK population had a very good monarch in her for an amazing long time.

Also in the UK Liz Truss is the new pm, she plans to lower taxes in order to help fighting their inflation. It is interesting to see how that pans out. My expectations are not that high so to say.

__________

In Ramstein Germany there was a large military meeting but I didn't have the time to sift all the relevant details out. In the meantime in Ukraine stuff doesn't seem to go bad. Of course it is still a crazy silly war and every people die for no reason at all but the daily oversight was not bad at all (Links to the Guardian): 

Ukraine has retaken 1,000 sq km of territory, Volodymyr Zelenskiy says

__________ 

The item for this update is a quote from a cute pdf I found on the Stern-Gerlach experiment. So lets go: 

Item 1) Comment from Einstein on the results of the SG-experiment.

 Item 1) Comment from Einstein on the results of the SG-experiment.

For people who do not know about this interesting experiment, look it up on Youtube or a wiki. It is about a beam of silver atoms that get separated in two streams by the application of a magnetic field. The physics professors think it is very important that this magnetic field is inhomogeneous, that means it is not constant with respect to distance but it should (in this experiment) not change in time.

How does the official explanation work? They do a bit of math, differentiate the stuff and voila there is your gradient of the magnetic field.  

Suppose the physics professors are in the right and electrons are all equal and are tiny magnets, in that case when this tiny magnet is placed in a inhomogeneous magnetic field, there is a tiny bit more force on one magnetic pole compared to the other magnetic pole of the tiny magnet.
The two forces one the magnetic poles of the electrons should also cancel each other out because the electron is so small. If you take a simple model for a tiny magnet, say a very small piece of line with two point sized magnetic poles on the endpoint of that line segment, the resulting force should be some constant times the gradient of  the magnetic field.

The gradient acts as some kind of derivative like in f(x + h) = f(x) + h*f'(x), if h is small the difference between f(x) and f(x + h) is some multiple of the derivative.

Below you some form of 'official calculation' where they 'forgot' to multiply in the size of the electron.  

But first the hilarious quote from Einstein: 

 

Given the time, more than a 100 years, I think that Einstein took into account the size of the electron. But I haven't seen his calculation so it is a wild guess what the maestro thought about how to explain this all.  

I remember I got crazy results too. Years ago I tried to calculate what gradient you needed to accelerate just one electron just one meter per second squared, ok it was just a wild estimate but the estimate said a gradient of 100.000 Tesla/meter.

And given the fact an electron has a very small mass, it would be totally impossible to move a silver atom in any significant way. And years ago that was one more reason as why electrons can't be tiny magnets.  

The only thing that is logical is and stays the annoying fact that electrons must be magnetic monopoles. This whole concept of electrons being tiny magnets was ridiculous from the get go.

But professional physics professors are even far more crazy: They also claim that electrons are 'point like particles'. How you cram two opposite magnetic poles in a point like particle is of course unexplained.

Anyway, here is the 'official explanation':  

And on top of that it is always swiped under the carpet: How is it possible that a super tiny dipolar magnet like an electron can 'anti align' itself with the applied external magnetic field? Other stuff like small electric dipoles like a water molecule in an electric field never do the 'anti align' thing.

This is what I had to day today. Thanks for your attention & till updates.
Updated 10 Sept: I forgot to link the pdf so here it is straight from the preprint archive:

The Stern-Gerlach Experiment and the Electron Spin
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1805.09412.pdf

In the meantime I found out there is only one repeated SG-experiment, this is known as the Frish-Sergè experiment and ha ha ha, it failed often to 'flip the electron spin'. That was done in the year 1933 so you just cannot say that in the science of physics the developments go fast and furious. Is it so hard to ponder the electron as a magnetic monopole? Apparently it is... 

 

(07 Sept 2022) The situation around the nuclear power plant in Ukraine keeps worrisome. The United Nations is asking for a demilitarized zone and it would be great if that could happen. This is such weird stuff that even for this detail we should keep on the economical sanctions at least one decade longer in place... 

Anyway I prepared two items but it is already far to late so let me skip the Einsteinian fun for now and dive into the complicated world of a possible price cap on Russian oil. So that our item for today: 

Item 1) The price cap on Russian oil, will it succeed or fail? I am optimistic.

 Item 1) The price cap on Russian oil, will it succeed or fail? I am optimistic.

Lets go back a few years; at one point in time all of a sudden oil prices went negative. Negative? Yes, if you bought oil you also got some money for that noble deed. As an outsider you look at that with utter surprise like have they gone mad or so?
No they have not gone mad, the costs of stopping production were far bigger compared to paying buyers to 'buy' oil. The negative price was a rational decision.  

The same will go for Russia; likely they will have great trouble restarting a drill if it had stopped for some time. On top of that it was remarked that during winter in Siberia, if they stop pumping up oil it all freezes and after that the whole drilling thing must be repeated... So that is all not a viable option for the Kremlin despite their words of cutting oil deliveries.  

But there are many sides to this interesting problem: The main side seems to be insurance. If you ride your car you must have insurance in case you cause an accident. The same goes for oil tankers. The idea is to make it forbidden to sell ship insurance to Russian oil above a certain price cap. 

Yet if one oil tanker goes bust, the costs with it are gigantic and will drown a lot of insurance companies. So the 13 major ship insurance companies pool all such risk among themselves and on top of that there is major reinsurance.  

There is nothing ingenious about that, as a matter of fact we the Dutch did that with the creation of the VOC, the United East-India Company when we invented the stock market. By buying shares in the VOC the investment was not concentrated in just one ship but in the entire fleet. So the loss of one ship does not bankrupt your investment.

Another interesting detail is the lack of tanker capacity. A lot of oil from Russia to the EU goes via pipeline. But if Russia cuts that, is there enough tanker capacity out there? 

Other people say that if the EU doesn't get the oil, China and India will buy it up. Again tanker capacity is the bottle neck: it takes a long time to deliver to say India. That eats up global tanker capacity and will also cripple Russian revenue because they must offer India lower and lower prices so it stays attractive for parasite nations like India to make a profit from these oil deals.

Anyway the finance ministers of the G7 countries have come to an agreement on this very important detail of diminishing Russian oil revenue income.   

After all the strategy is to cripple Russian military might to such an extend they will not repeat their Ukrainian adventure in any other European nation. 

__________ 

On Youtube channel Joe Blogs there is a relatively good explanation of how all that insurance, pooling and reinsurance works. And if the entire insurance industry feels like it is fine, wise, even a moral obligation to destroy Russian revenue from oil sales, why not it?  

It might cost some money but if the insurance industry starts thinking about another war of aggression started by Russia; that will cost much much more for them. I am not saying WE MUST SLAUGHTER RUSSIA BEFORE RUSSIA SLAUGHTERS US!  

No I am only saying we can't have this in another European country.

Ok, you must always listen to other opinions. So I found some weirdo's that from the get go think it will all fail. Please read it so you can think about the depth of their arguments...

Ok, it is late at night so sleep well and have nice dreams about crippling Russian military might. Thanks for your attention and see you in future updates.  

 

 (02 Sept 2022) I don't have much to say and I don't have much time. So lets go:

Item 1) Poland wants 1.3 trillion & IEAE arrives at Zaporizhzhia.
Item 2) Correction & addendum. 

 Item 1) Poland wants 1.3 trillion & IEAE arrives at Zaporizhzhia.

Today it emerged that Poland wants a staggering 1.3 trillion € from Germany as compensation for the damages of WWII. Is that a good idea?

As far as I know history, after WWII the political leaders decided not to repeat the mistakes made after World War one. So no crippling decade long repair payments to the victors of WWII. As such the European nations could snuggle together in things like the coal & steal community, later the European Economical Union till the present day form the EU has. 

The Marshall plan was also very helpful with the crafting of a more modern Europe. 

May be Poland has some point, but you can also demand say one trillion from Russia because Poland was taken into the Warsaw pact...

I don't know much about international law but my guesstimate is this will not hold up in any international court. And if I could vote on it, I would vote against it.

Likely this is a sensitive point in Poland, after all they have suffered much more in WWII compared to my own country. May be it is better to let this rest for always...

In Ukraine the atomic inspectors have arrived in that nuclear facility in a place with a name I can't memorize. It is noteworthy that had to cross the frontline and that is an interesting feature in itself. If you run into a bunch of Russians without proper communication gear, you cold draw fire... 

 

All I can say is GOOD LUCK! 

 Item 2) Correction & addendum. 

A few updates I posted a faulty math thing. It is just a typo but it is a very good typo because I always check my texts before publishing them because there are always some errors. Some are tiny and not significant, but as a math person I love it when all faults are gone. 

It was that picture with the intellectual Harley Quinn. Those vertical stripes mean you must take the determinant of what is in between. The comp means you must take a complementary minor, in this case a 2x2 minor.

So it must not be comp(| AB12 |) but this: | comp( AB12)|. I hope this did not cause much confusion because it is just a typo. 

 

Addendum: In the previous post I made fun of those Delft physics people that put all kinds of quantum stuff into super position with each other and after that declare that they can teleport quantum information faster as the speed of light.

For the record: When it comes to electron spin I don't think this is possible. If my view on electron magnetism is correct, likely their monopole magnetic charge is permanent just like the electric charge of an electron or a proton.

I want to remark that after a few years I am looking into those Bell proofs again and may be may be it is possible to create those so called 'Bell states' with photon pairs from those non-linear crystals that do that 'parametric downward conversion'. (That is a process where one photon breaks down into two photons).

Why do I think that? Well photons are very wavy things, so may be it is possible to craft the so called Bell states with them.

But I understand not much about photons. For example our electricity net has an alternating currency of 50 Hertz. As such the photons produced by that have a wavelength of about 6000 km. But how 'large' is a 50 Hz photon in itself?
Or is that a meaningless question?

My dear reader, it is time to split so we can both go our own ways.
Till updates.  

  

(31 Aug 2022) In Ukraine today finally some international inspectors can go to the nuclear plant that is in use as some improvised Russian military basis. Lets hope they can do their job and report what is going on there. Don't forget in the beginning when they went to Chernobyl they did all kinds of crazy stuff like digging trenches in the radioactive forest...    

The grain export situation is still stable although the amount of exports needs to triple or so. Famine in some countries is still not prevented if the exports don't increase...

The long awaited counter offensive has begun: I wish the Ukrainians a lot of luck. Going of the offensive is a very different thing compared to defensive actions. There is an information embargo and that is good of course. A commentator joked that they know more about the Russian army than the Ukrainian army. Until now only the first line of Russian defense seems to be taken, there seem to the three lines of Russian defense. Anyway my dear fighters: GOOD LUCK!

Vulcano ammo for hwitzers? I had never heard of it but it seems to have a range of 80+ km. That is the stuff called 'assisted rounds', of course they have less kg explosives because likely they are about 50 kg total weight. The good thing is of course that this makes the howitzers a more equal footing with the HIMARS boom stuff from the USA.   

And an awful lot more happened, the above are just four details that I consider the most important. But there is also a meeting between nations to discuss further military help and aid and training and more and more. 

__________ 

Today one item about what I view as 'good science' where developments go fast and furious compared to 'bad science' like explanations for electron spin or weird fantasies like 'teleporting quantum information fasten then the speed of light'. So lets go:

Item 1) Stable Diffusion AI (good) versus quantum entanglement (likely bad).

 Item 1) Stable Diffusion AI (good) versus quantum entanglement (likely bad).

There are more and more AI's floating to the surface of media attention. We have those giant language models that are very good at estimating the next word. You can alsmost talk to them like they are humans. 

A few weeks back a thing named Stable Diffusion came out: It is a text to image generator. So you type in some stuff and Stable Diffusion creates a picture from that. You can even install it on your own computer but that is not easy: You need the correct hardware, you must know how Python works and more of that. 

But it is amazingly good, just look at this: 

 

Developments in AI go fast and furious for years now and it looks like there is no end in sight. I think this is caused by the fact people are willing to learn and if they are on the wrong track they soon change course.

I don't think that during my lifetime I will see an AI that is good at math or better at math as humans are. If you ask those large language models what 17 x 13 is, they look it up in their massive database until they find the answer 221. These models don't have a clue about counting or adding of multiplying numbers.  

Another cute picture, even the Harry Potter characters are made by this Stable Diffusion thing. Stable Diffusion seems to be very good with human faces while the hands are still  horrible. 

 

So all in all good science is capable of learning from their mistakes, adapt and move on to the next stage.  

Bad science is for example the next: 

You have two quantum particles that are entangled when it comes to their spin. For example the electron pairs in your body are entangled and that is not because the one electron has spin up and the other spin down. They are both in a state where they are both up and down at the same time.
It is only when you measure the spin of one of them and you find say it is spin down, the other must be spin up. 

In my view this is advanced mumbo jumbo. Electron spin is the magnetic properties of the electron and it is no secret I think that electrons are magnetic monopoles that carry a permanent magnetic charge. There is nothing mumbo jumbo about that.
Let me repeat the nonsense that they believe in for example the Dutch university of Delft. Only now I do it with a hydrogen atom: 

You have two quantum particles that make up the hydrogen atom: a proton and a neutron. Because of the opposite electric charges they have these two particles are entangled. Every particle is constantly in a superpostition of being an electron a proton. 

Now if you separate the two quantum particles in a hydrogen atom and you bring one of the particles to the Andromeda galaxy and when you are in that far away galaxy you measure the electric charge of that particle and you find it is positive, in that case the particle left behind in our own universe will have a negative electric charge...

Nobody with a normal functioning brain will think that any hydrogen atom will act this way. But when it comes to the magnetic properties of the electron, the weirdo's from the universities keep on making no progress. 

For you, my honorable reader, I selected one of those idiots that are very good at spreading quantum mumbo jumbo:

TU Delft Has Appointed Professor Ronald Hanson Distinguished Professor in Quantum Computing and Quantum Internet 

Now I don't hate Ronald, he is just one of the many weirdo's when it comes to electron spin. But this stuff he is doing is bad science and no good working quantum computer will emerge from this... Anyway no quantum computer based on electron spin will ever work properly.

End of this update & thanks for your attention & kill more of those fucking Russians!

 

(26 Aug 2022) Two items for today's update: 

Item 1) Lets hammer those grenades into perfection...;)
Item 2) Harley Quinnn loves determinants?

 Item 1) Lets hammer those grenades into perfection...;)

On TvP (tv Poland) they had some amazing footage of a guy preparing grenades for an RPG7 they said: 

 

I guess the guy knows perfectly what he is doing and it's all safe...;)  

There was a new military aid package from the USA, it's worth about 3 billion US$. Without listing it all, here a few details:

In addition there is money for six advanced surface-to-air missile systems, known as NASAMS, munitions for them, 24 counter-artillery radars, precision rocket systems, and more than 300,000 rounds of artillery and mortar ammunition.

I am glad finally some good air protection goes that direction. Germany has promised air protection too but that is still in the pipeline. Some commentators think or suggest Germany is deliberately doing stuff the slow slow way. That's not true, it is a bit of what I name the paradox of NATO.  

Germany just like my country are in the NATO for decades. And it works perfectly, decade in decade out almost no serious war. At least not on our home territories and so over the decades military readiness has declined. Both Germany and my country had strong pacifist movements all the time. Now I am not a pacifist myself but I consider them a valuable part of society. I think it is better to live in a country where there might be 'to much' pacifism compared to a society where every 2 or 3 years the majority wants to go to war with another country...
Anyway it is what it is and one day the German air protection will be there.

My old opponent David Petraeus was on CNN in relation to the Ukrainian war that now lasts for over six months. And a small miracle happened: David his dog did not come in more or less demanding a walk. Likely David was in his work environment because on the table behind him were all kinds of books. Well click on the picture to see the CNN video:

 Item 2) Harley Quinnn loves determinants?

No, as far as I know Harley Quinn doesn't love determinants. Yesterday I posted the new post on how to calculate the determinant of a 4x4 matrix using only 2x2 minors.  

Now I have more or less cracked the matrix version of the Pythagorean theorem it was more or less doable. But I remember that at least a few times in the past I tried similar stuff and that always failed. It is not a ground shaking math result but it is interesting in it's own right.

 

In the above M is a 4x4 square matrix, the stuff like |AB12|  are the six 2x2 minors you can find in the first and second column of the matrix M.

Once more this is not a deep math result like finding new exponential circles or so, but it is surprising for sure that only two minus signs pop up. If you are just like me always dumb and  naive, you would expect three minus signs. Just like you calculate the determinant in the usual manner...

I only worked out the case of a 4x4 matrix so I skipped the general case of a nxn matrix. Here is the latest post from the other website:  

Calculating the determinant of a 4×4 matrix using 2×2 minors. What is the +/- pattern in this case?

Ok, I spilled the beans already because you can see the +/- pattern in the picture from math professor Harley Quinn. And sometimes I wonder if I am crazy; I start this update with a guy hammering RPG grenades while ending with the honorable professor Quinn hammering out four dimensional determinants...;)

End of this update. See you next week.  

 

(24 Aug 2022) I cleaned up this home page a bit and threw a lot of old stuff into the history files, index17.htm to be precise. So it should load faster now because all these updates since Feb this year make a long long reading...

Tomorrow, or actually today I think, there is some independence day in Ukraine. The US has warned for Russian attacks and has even withdrawn a lot of their employees from Ukraine to safer places...

Two items for today: 

Item 1) The Dugina death; is dad a crisis actor?
Item 2) A short but very good math video upon curve curvature.  

 Item 1) The Dugina death; is dad a crisis actor?

By all standards this was a weird attck; this Dugina female died from a bomb attached or planted in the car she drove. It is weird to assume it was done by foreigners, that Dugina female was definitely not a serious target. And her father that weird hard core ideologue Dugin is, as far as I am concerned, also not a valid or worthy target.

My guesstimate is that it is some internal working of the Russian state. And that Dugin guy is indeed some weirdo. It was said that he dreamed of a Russian empire from Wladiwostok to Dublin. Yes, to Dublin. My whole life I have been waiting for the wonderful day that my country could become a part of Russia. What a fucking lunatic, people with serious mental thingelings are often not a serious target.  

UATV explained how the attack was done according to the FSB: 

 

Video title: Death of Dugina: the case is solved. Here is what happened
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YwC9xAADvE

The next picture is of course a bit of dubious moral value. But I decided to make it and post it today. Why not? When we heard from so called 'crisis actors' when the Bucha stuff came out, of course at some point in time that needs an echo.

So the Kremlin gets a bit of her own coin back; Dugin is a crisis actor. May be he doesn't even had a daughter and that female is just some CGI computer construct...

 

Well lets leave that idiot alone. 

 Item 2) A short but very good math video upon curve curvature.  

It is a bit of a shame but I never derived that result in the next short video (3 or 4 minutes). The video goes a bit fast but for my taste not too fast. It is about finding an expression that gives you the radius of curvature at any given point in a graph.

If you see the result for the first time without a good derivation of it, the result looks rather weird at first. Why is there a third power and so? 

 

Video title: Radius of Curvature Proof - approximating a curve with a circle!

This summer there are a whole lot of math videos out because the guy from the 3Blue1Brown channel has thrown in another summer of math exposition. This time you could also participate if you, just like me, could not make those fancy animations yourself. In that case you could team up with someone who could do those animations and you just do the math.

I have to say I gave it some serious thought. For years I have been thinking that finally the exponential circles or Euler circles if you want, would get the attention they need if I just had a good video.

But after a day I realized that even a good video will not wake up those people, so I decided not to participate. No, better avoid more disappointments and not waste my time on the professional math professors. 

Ok, that is what I had to say today. Till updates and I hope you have some fun with the math video.  

 

(19 Aug 2022) The situation around the Ukrainian nuclear power plant is still a mess. And I don't understand what the Russians want with this. Ok there might be some dumb ass African nations that support Russia but more normal countries frown a bit on this kind of behavior I just guess.

A few countries have imposed limits on holiday visa's for Russians. Ok, countries are sovereign so they can do what they see fit. For myself speaking I think I side more with the German line of thinking; we must not end in a situation where for example dissident Russians can't leave Russia. And what's next: also ban students?
As far as I see it, the goal is to cripple the military power of Russia to the extend that they can't repeat the Ukrainian adventure in another country. The goal not to cripple the entire Russian society.
So if there are no security concerns with Russians traveling in and out of Europe, I am relatively relaxed on this travel detail.

Two items in this update:

 Item 1) Wow, that is some hard GDP growth!
 Item 2) Another weirdo that can't find magnetic monopoles... 

 Item 1) Wow, that is some hard GDP growth!

The latest Dutch gross domestic product growth surprised to the upside: It was 2.6% quarter on quarter and the economy was 5.4% bigger compared to a year ago. 

 

For the time being we can say that COVID-19 was just a dip and now we are back on track. Ok, it was expensive but the extra debt our government had to take on is also already declining fast. So it's more or less like it is expected to be. 

Why inflation does not hurt more I don't know. Ok ok in almost all labor contracts here there are automatic provisions for inflation. So you don't see central bankers here shouting hard that wages must not grow in order to prevent a price-wage inflation spiral...;) 

All in all I like the way we have our economy, if wealth is more evenly spread it is much easier to eat up all that inflation. But the inflation cycle isn't over by far so may be I will regret my words in say 12 months of time... 

A positive by-effect is that both the inflation and the extra economical growth contribute to the tax revenues of the Dutch state.

Item 2) Another weirdo that can't find magnetic monopoles...  

Another video where some weirdo explains that they can't find magnetic monopoles. And you get the usual explanation that even the electrons are tiny magnets with two magnetic poles. The rubbish refuses to die.

In the picture below you see David Tong explaining that two magnets attract each other if their magnetic fields are aligned. This audience was rather dumb but suppose someone would ask David as why in an electron pair the electrons must be anti-aligned in order to be able to make chemical bonds or stuff like that...  

 

Video title: David Tong: The Allure of the Magnetic Monopole.
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ma4NgH8abKU 

Well in that case the weirdo's always come up with the Pauli exclusion principle and they mumble some stuff about 'quantum numbers'. That is not an explanation, at best that is a mystification and the person who asked the question is supposed to feel dumb because he or she does not understand 'quantum number'. 

It's all a big bag of bullshit my dear reader: There are only electron pairs in nature because very likely electrons are the magnetic monopoles and every electron pair is made from the two magnetic charges there are...

That makes much more logic than that weird 'spin up' versus 'spin down' that the weirdo's from physics use. You know stuff like 'spin up' makes only sense when there is some applied magnetic field. So what happens if there is no magnetic field? And what happens to 'spin up' when the magnetic field is changing or vibrating?

The official version of electron spin is still a bag filled with bullshit.

__________

Fun detail: Yesterday on the preprint archive I made a few searches on 'spin flip' and 'electron spin flip'. Well you don't get articles from people in a physics laboratory showing how they 'flip the electron spins'.

No, you get a lot of articles where people do all kinds of calculations in those Ising models. And of course in those Ising models they use the spin of electrons as tiny magnets... And that my dear reader is where they spend your tax money on.

__________

I am waiting for about 7 years, if people like David Tong claim that electrons are tiny magnets, what fucking experimental evidence you have for that David? 

There is no experimental evidence for that claim. And people like David Tong never ever think that is a problem. They just blah blah on year in year out.

That was it for this update my dear reader. You must not think I am angry at the physics professors. You must more see it as a better understanding of how stupid they are. Thanks for your attention and see you in the next update.  

 

(17 Aug 2022) In a few months it will be winter and in the meantime the EU countries can work on the gas problem. Well lets hope for the best. Yesterday I got my monthly energy oversight, I have uses minus 13 € in electricity and plus 30 € for gas. On top of that my prices are fixed till the end of 2025... 

So for the time being for me it is not much of a problem. 

Two items for today: 

Item 1) Another Crimean ammo dump says BOOM...;)
Item 2) Advertisement latest math post.

  Item 1) Another Crimean ammo dump says BOOM...;)

It seems that there were two strikes in the Crimean peninsula and on top of that the HQ of the Wagner groups came under attack. Some pro-Kremlin but relatively stupid journalist gave away where it was via posting of the next picture:  

 

I had to shrink the picture to 450 pixels but on the left upper corner is the street name or so. So that could cost one or more HIMARS rocktes. It is rumored but not confirmed that the guy known as "Putin's chef" was also among those that live no longer.

Picture source was a BBC article:
Ukraine hits Russian Wagner mercenary HQ in east
Link used: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-62547403 

And in a place named Mayskoye another ammo depot went bust. There were 3000 evacuees so that is a good development; can they feel a little bit what Ukrainians are feeling for six months now... 

 

For the time being those Russian air defense systems like the S-300 and S-400 don't make much of a difference. It was said that Russia will deliver S-500, I don't know how much better that is, so lets wait and see.

 Item 2) Advertisement latest math post.

Last Friday I uploaded my latest post on the Pythagoras stuff. By accident it became a bit sloppy because after I started writing it all of a sudden I realized that my new found calculation scheme of turning a non-square matrix into a square matrix COULD GO WRONG! That was no reason for panic because you can always work around that problem but I had to address it of course.

So I consider it a bit sloppy but after over 200 math posts that is allowed I guess.

Anyway I have once more some lousy excuse to show the most simple manner of making one column into a square matrix. I don't know if there is an official name for these kind of matrices, I name them perpendicular matrices because every column is perpendicular to the other columns in the matrix. (Click on the picture for the new math post.) 

 

It goes wrong if you start with to many zero's like in a = b = 0 and say c is a non zero real number. In this case the next two columns will be zero columns. Anyway it is not a hard problem to dodge.

Yesterday I solved an old outstanding problem: how to calculate the determinant of a 4x4 matrix using a lot of 2x2 determinants. In the past I once tried that but I failed. But now with a tiny bit more math knowledge like the matrix version of the Pythagorean theorem, all of a sudden this is far more easy to do.

So all in all while the body is aging faster and faster, it's still a good math year.

Title of the new post: On the degree of expansion columns & can the expansion go wrong? (Pythagoras, matrix version.)

With that I would like to leave you alone. Have good cognition in your brain, have peace in your heart and a lot of bullets in the bodies of Russian soldiers... 

    

(12 Aug 2022) Correction: In the previous post I wrote "200 km inside Crimea" where that should have been "200 km from the frontline". That was a bit stupid of me but at first I wrote "200 km from the border" and I was like no that is too insulting for the Ukrainians so I changed it to what I correct now. 

The situation around the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhia is still crazy as hell. It makes you wonder how the decision making process goes over there on the side of the Russians... 

Two items for today: 

Item 1) Happy holiday in Crimea?
Item 2) Do anti-particles travel back in time? (NOPE!)

 Item 1) Happy holiday in Crimea?

Not much news about the destroyed air field in Crimea. There were good satellite images out, cute before & after pictures. And yes there are some craters but is that from incoming missiles? One person remarked that it was just in reach of those Harpoon rockets, others think it was done by a team of partizans.  

And I, I have no clue. May be it happened because somebody snapped his fingers and somehow the sound got multiplied and blew up the first ammo. And after the first ammo ignited, the rest followed. 

This is how it looked from the beach: 

 

I didn't copy the satellite photo's but if you haven't seen them look them up. All these air craft have their own 'rabbit hole' where they are parked. With rabbit hole I mean large mud walls likely for preventing damage if somewhere else something explodes. 

So that didn't help much, a lot of lost air craft for the Russians. 

 Item 2) Do anti-particles travel back in time? (NOPE!)

A bit more on that nonsense of anti-particles that supposedly travel back in time. I found a relatively good video from Parth G where that mumbo jumbo is explained. It has a bit to do with Feynman diagrams and if you rotate such a diagram you van view that as going back in time. But a bit of fancy math does not make anti matter travel back in time; just like other matter it will go only forward I just guess...

Anyway in this video and also in one of the others from the previous update there is talk about electrons and positrons that annihilate each other. If my view on electron spin is correct, so all electrons are magnetic monopoles, in about 50% of the collisions between an electron and it's anti particle the positron will not lead to annihilation. 

But people never talk about that. They only talk about stuff they understand or stuff they think they understand. And indeed if all electrons are exactly the same, it is not understandable as why such a pair of particles refuses to annihilate... 

It should be rather simple to build an experiment where you have a beam of electrons, a beam of positrons. With a magnetic field you can always split those beams in the two magnetic states, you now have four combinations of letting them collide. In two of such combinations there should be much more annihilation compared to the other two cases where electrons and positrons of equal magnetic charge are collided.  

Video title: Do Antiparticles Move BACKWARDS in Time?

Here is that wiki:  

Electron–positron annihilation, link used:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron%E2%80%93positron_annihilation 

It is very interesting that after seven years I still can't find the tiniest detail that says electrons are not magnetic monopoles. For example only in the last year I found the above detail that there is also elastic scattering between electrons and positrons. 

So for my brain this makes the world a little bit more understandable. And for people with sloppy brains who think it is pretty normal that anti particles travel back in time based on some fucking stupid rotation of some calculating scheme, if you think such weird stuff why try to get a better understanding? 

But after seven years it is still a deep deep mystery to my mind that 100% of the physics people think that electrons are magnetic dipoles and that they just can't find magnetic monopoles. Without any experimental evidence they keep on doing their weird logic...  

Why God why did you create humans this way? Or is it evolution and I must ask:
Why Evolution why did you evolve humans this way?

May be it is time to split, see you around. 

 

(10 Aug 2022) The entire war I mostly post two updates a week and now this homepage is getting too long again. So it's time to throw a lot into the archive pages.

Two items for today: 

Item 1) It said BOOM 200 km inside Crimea.
Item 2) 3 Video’s to kill the time & Unzicker’s horror on the quaternions…

 Item 1) It said BOOM 200 km inside Crimea.

That was a very interesting development: Explosions on an airbase 200 km inside Crimea. That is interesting because as far as I know there are no deliveries of rockets that can do such a distance. 

One of the possibilities is that it was a rocket made inside Crimea. That is very well possible, after all that flagship the Moskva was also built there. Of course it could also have other causes for the explosions but likely tomorrow the Ruzzians will come with another package of bullshit to explain it all. 

 

It is definitely a good thing that all of a sudden even 200 km inside Crimea the people can't feel safe. Why should the Ukrainians always have the burden of always come under attack from some long range rocket? 

If it is frustrating for me that we can't deliver weaponry for striking inside Russia, imagine how the average Ukrainian feels about this. On the other hand there are all kinds of reasons to let this stupid and crazy war not spill over into other territories.

Anyway, it's war so it is what it is and there is no value in complaining about it.

From a video from a guy named "The Russian dude" I have the next two screen shots.
The first one is from Donetsk (that is the capital of the occupied region in the east), an apartment was hit from the east. Of course Russians drunk and stupid as they are told it was done by Ukraine. 

 

If it wasn't always so violent it would be perfect comedy: Rockets coming in from the east and the Ruzzians blaming the people in Ukraine to the west.   

A few items of the latest USA military aid package: 

 

I don't know what Claymore anti-personnel munitions are, it sounds like mines against individuals but let's not loose ourselves into details like that. And lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) 3 Video’s to kill the time & Unzicker’s horror on the quaternions…

I already wrote a new math post for the other website but I have the previous post to share with you. These are three video's upon physics, no this time it is not me hammering upon the detail that electrons cannot be 'tiny magnets' but that a magnetic monopole model for the electron is far more logical.

This time I let the idiots finish themselves. If for example people are too stupid to figure out for themselves that differentiation on the quaternions is a fucking nightmare that never will work, wby should we take them seriously?

If you are to stupid for that, likely the rest of your thinking is also shallow and not very relevant when it comes for example to electron spin.

In the third video you even see a guy claiming that positrons are moving back in time. That is the idea that electrons move forward in time and if you reverse the direction of time you get a positron.

You know, physics is supposed to be a science and should not resemble the average working or content of a psychiatric hospital.

Of course it is not forbidden to think of stuff moving back in time. Just like it is not forbidden to say that inside an electron there could be many universes that are all seven dimensional. I just make up some retarded crap, that is not forbidden.

But using taxpayer money for crap like that is a bridge too far in my opinion.  

Here is the link to the latest post with three boring video's:

3 Video’s to kill the time & Unzicker’s horror on the quaternions… 

Ok, that was it for this update. Live well and think well.

 

(05 Aug 2022) I don't have much to say today so lets go directly to this day's item: 

Item 1) A mixed bag of weird stuff (don't have much to say).

 Item 1) A mixed bag of weird stuff (don't have much to say).

In my country too it is far too dry. Where I live it is still more or less ok but there are now pictures in the news that are very un-Dutch so to say. We were supposed to be a waterland and our problems were always just too much water. And now this... 

 

This evening (it's now just past midnight) I took 10 minutes to alter the Ruzzian Z a little bit. After all I explained a few times to the Russians that one of the main problems is a logo that makes other people vomit. 

If they would just have a better logo, like the beautiful NATO logo, they would not have all these economical sanctions. And everyone would give them the love and respect they deserve. Really true. 

Anyway I took a picture from a wiki explaining the 'Z' that is in use right now.
Here it is: 

 

I am a good guy and I always like to help whenever I can. So I changed it a bit until we have the next: 

 

That is already a lot better! And that in just 10 at most 12 minutes of work my dear Russians. Now if you start using this logo likely all over Europe there will be demonstrations demanding an end to the unjust and unprovoked economical sanctions... 

__________ 

In Germany the former pm Gerhard Schröder is proposing to open Nord Stream 2 because via Nord Stream 1 not enough gas is coming in. Of course Germany is a sovereign country so they can always decide for themselves but I wonder if that is a good idea. Last week Siemens came out telling that there are no problems with turbines as Gazprom has claimed. And likely they know, after all the sold that stuff to Russia. 

Anyway on DW news I found the next totally bizarre picture. It is from Gerhard Schröder's wife doing a prayer for peace with in the background the Kremlin. It was made at the end of February DW said.

 

Well that is a mindset very different from mine. I think more in terms of BOOM stuff, filled coffins and all those niceties that come with armed conflict.

__________

At last there seem to be some technical problems with the howitzers that my country together with Germany delivered to Ukraine. It seems to be so worse that in Poland a special repair place is made for repairs.

In the first place, sorry & excuses. But in the second place stuff like this can always be expected. During peacetime like we have over here for over half a century you just cannot fire howitzers day in day out until they break.

So the way they break down is important information while it also has to be remarked that German officers say they are used just too much. May be it is better if the Ukrainians shoot say 20% less every day.  

And may be Ukraine could get a bit more howitzers? I don't know, our arsenals aren't that big. Anyway lets hope these technical problems can be overcome.

End of this hap-snap update. See you next week! 

 

(03 Aug 2022) I don't have much time so lets go direct to today's Ukraine item: 

Item 1) First grain ship arrived in Turkey & that weird prison attack.

 Item 1) First grain ship arrived in Turkey & that weird prison attack.

Finally a bit of good news: the first ship is actually in Turkey. From now on according to Turkey one ship a day can come over from Ukraine. If I remember it correctly, this ship is about 26 thousand ton. That is 26 million kilo's of grain so yes that is some food for some people but the backlog in grain transport is gigantic of course. 

 

Well lets hope for the best and a big thumbs up for Turkey! 

In that weird prison attack a lot is still a mystery. I observed some video from a guy claiming the prison was very near to the frontline. But I looked it up in the Deep State map from Ukraine and it was over 25 km from the frontline. I don't think in itself that amounts to a war crime. (Prisoners of war should be imprisoned away from the battlefield.) 

Another claim from Tv Poland said that the Maxar satellite images showed that about two days before the attack about 50 new graves were dug. But I could not find a good photo on that detail. Of course if it's true, the whole thing is a serious war crime. 

The claims of Russia that it was a HIMARS attack look to be crumbling day in day out. If the satellite image is correct only one building was damaged and these HIMARS have a pay load of about 90 kg of explosives. But the building where the attack happened is still standing. I don't know about the house where you live but if in the neighborhood of my house 200 pounds of high explosive say the BOOM thing, likely my house is flattened for good. 

From the psychological point of view it is very interesting that the Ruzzians constantly come up with the HIMARS stuff. Just a tiny bit of modern Western weaponry is a good pain in the ass for them.

Of course at any point in time, with the snap of two fingers, the HIMARS ammo can be uplifted to not only the short range rockets but say median range too. If memory serves medium range is about 150 km. For the time being I don't think that's a good idea but if it turns out that likely the Ruzzians themselves killed all these POW's you can also argue "Why not?" 

Ok, that was it for this small update.  

 

(29 July 2022) Two items for today: 

Item 1) Congrats with the Antonivka bridge Ukrainians!
Item 2) Added old posts to the new Pythagoras category.

 Item 1) Congrats with the Antonivka bridge Ukrainians!

After a lot of trying finally this bridge is damaged far enough so it can't be used in a meaningful way by the Russian occupiers. What I considered a bit strange was all those small holes in the bridge. A dumb person like me expected much bigger holes, after all there is a serious payload on those HIMARS rockets. 

But likely if you ask an explosives expert it all becomes more logical. 

Anyway: CONGRATULATIONS! 

 

Another thing that brings a good deal of relief to my mind is that now only about 30 Ukrainians die in combat every day. By prewar standards this is still a very huge number but it is no longer that horrific 150-200 range of daily deaths... 

Item 2) Added old posts to the new Pythagoras category. 

That video from the Fields medal ceremony has disappeared completely! That is kinda weird but may be it needs more editing or so. Anyway if memory serves it was the pm of the host country that made a remark that more or less goes like this:

Mathematics is the only science that is never revolutionary. It only expands on itself. 

I would like to add that yes this is true. But if you would leave this expansion to all those hundreds of math professors in the room, you can only observe such expansion on a geological timescale...;) 

__________

Anyway some time ago I posted my first stuff on Pythagoras, the matrix version to be precise. And about one week later I did an internet search on that DuckDuckGo engine in order to see what other people wrote about this version of the Pythagoras theorem. So I searched for something like "Pythagoras theorem matrix version".  

To my surprise my own post from just say seven days ago popped up as one of the first results. That was just really fast. I still don't understand why the math often goes fast but all things magnetism just not.

Last year I discontinued my pages on magnetism on this website and I more or less concluded that the physics professors were equally stupid as the math professors. I think that it is time to revise that: physics professors are far more stupid as math professors.

__________ 

Over on the other website (3dcomplexnumbers.net) I made a new category of published posts for the Pythagoras stuff. But I forgot to add all stuff from before 2022. So today I expanded the new category with the old posts upon more general versions of the Pythagoras theorem.

As you see on inspection in the next picture, my posts are on position 2 and 4 on the DuckDuckGo search engine while the other two links are not that relevant. 

 

The content of the new category can be found here:

Category Archives: Pythagoras stuff.
Link used: http://3dcomplexnumbers.net/category/pythagoras-stuff/
   

Now via my simple internet searches an old post popped up. It was something with inverse Pythagoras or Pythagoras with reciprocals. And I damn well knew I had written that post but I could not remember what the content was.
I decided not to look but simply wait until it popped up in my brain again. And oh yes, after a good night sleep during coffee I remembered it again.

So an old math jewel from the past, from the year 2018 to be precise:
What is the inverse Pythagoras theorem?
http://3dcomplexnumbers.net/2018/03/20/what-is-the-inverse-pythagoras-theorem/

Originally I planned to show you a few pictures from the hundreds of math professors that attended the Fields medal ceremony. And confront them with the fact there is amazingly little Pythagoras stuff out there written & crafted by them.

All these overpaid weirdo's like math & physics professors, sometimes they are very good at the stuff they do. For example:

Q: What are math professors very good at?
A: They are very good at telling that they could not find the 3D complex numbers.

Q: What are physics professors very good at?
A: They are very good at explaining they could not find magnetic monopoles.

That was it for this update. Live well, think well and always ensure we have this constant stream of dead Russian soldiers. If not I get depressed and I don't want to be in that sorrow state of mind.  
  

(27 July 2022) Is an economical recession coming? Today in the USA the stock price of Walmart fell by about 10% on disappointing results. So higher prices in the USA lead to a significant different consumer behavior. Here in Europe it was reported that Unilever was able to pass on the higher prices. So, for the time being, higher prices don't make the EU consumers balk.  

Now there is often a hassle about when a recession starts. In a lot of countries it is simple two quarters of shrinking GDP. But in the USA there is a committee that looks at a wide range of statistics and declares if there is a serious decline in economical output yes or no. These are just different methods so all that hassle stuff is not needed at all. Thursday the US GDP figures come out so we will see...
Two items for today:

Item 1) Russia leaving the Space Station after 2024?
Item 2) Another Fields medal finalist.  

 Item 1) Russia leaving the Space Station after 2024?

AP reports that may be Russia will leave the ISS. That can have all kinds of weird consequences. Some parts or modules were built by Russia back in the time, likely they have ownership of those modules. So they can do more or less what they want with it. 

I haven't heard of any kind of withdrawing from the ITER fusion project. Likely they are still in although I expect the ITER project to fail because of electron instabilities. 

Anyway here is the AP writing on this detail: 

Russia to drop out of International Space Station after 2024, link used: https://apnews.com/article/russia-ukraine-putin-science-
241e789005f6375eeac3189acbdbc140

Remark this link is relative weird, why put in putin in that link? Likely for archiving purposes I guess. 

 Item 2) Another Fields medal finalist.  

It seems that a few weeks ago some math congress was hold in Finland or so. Anyway the prime minister has the honor to open it and he has a good joke for the hundreds of math professors in the audience: 

There are three kinds of finance ministers: In the first place there are those who can count. In the second place there are those who can't count. 

For some strange reason Youtube says play it yourself so I can't show you it. But it was a boring four hour video anyway, who is going to look at a giant room filled with math professors? 

One of the fresh Field medallists also does stuff with magnetism. It is not a secret that I think electrons are not tiny magnets but magnetic monopoles. That is why they form electron pairs in chemical bonding with a shared electron pair.  

All these years I could never find anything that points to electrons being tiny magnets. Only overpaid physics professors say that but if you look at any experiment out there, often it is far better explained by the magnetic monopole model for the electron.

The math professor that got a medal from other math professors is Hugo Duminil-Copin. He is just an ordinary guy, he is not different from all other university people that think electrons are tiny magnets. In itself Hugo is not stupid, but the collective of physics professors is truly stupid.

They claim electrons are tiny magnets but they don't have a tiny shred of experimental proof for that. And they just don't care about it; that is why I don't consider them to be scientists but people from blah blah land. 

There are also short videos out about the individual winners, the next screen shot if from the Hugo video: 

 

The 'tiny magnet' model is already nonsense. How can electrons form a chemical bond with opposite spins? That is anti-aligned and how can that work? It is one hundred percent bullshit.

So the 'tiny magnet' model is already a weird model and what does Hugo Duminil-Copin do with it?

 

He uses the so called Ising model to study this further. On top of that he even gets a price for that. This world is a weird weird place.

The last two or three decades there was only one achievement made on using the magnetic properties of electrons. That is the so called Giant Magneto Resistance effect. You can check for yourself; does it work based on all electrons being the same or are there two kinds of electrons?

The GMR effect in itself is very interesting; if you make a material with alternating layers of magnetism, see below, there is much more electrical resistance. Based on that IBM could make those big hard disks for your computer very cheap.
The next picture does not depict the GMR effect but the fact that electrons scatter differently depending on their spin. But if electrons carry a permanent monopole magnetic charge, at least for my own brain it becomes a bit more logical:  

 

And the whole thing of classifying the spin states as 'spin up' versus 'spin down' points to electrons being magnetic monopoles.

But I have given up on the physics professors; logic does not work just like all their spintronics just never work. So lets try to find that button 'upload website'.

That was it for this small update.  

 

(22 July 2022) The grain & other food export problems don't seem to evolve very much. May be it is better to resume to trying to shoot down all Russian war ships, may be that is not better. I don't know, time is running out and there is not much happening... 

One of the African presidents came out complaining that now most Russian banks are thrown from the SWIFT messaging system they can't even pay for Russian grain. I would like to remark that SWIFT is only a messaging system, when it was invented it was likely secure telex and may that is what they still do today. Anyway payments could still be done if you have an email address or a telephone number. The problem is of course when such payments need to go through a chain of banks and banks simply refusing to transfer money into the direction of Russia. The problem is that you try to buy stuff from a criminal while all of the time complaining about colonialism this and colonialism that. You know we are a tiny country but we are number two after the USA when it comes to food exports. Why is non of the African nations doing stuff like that? Oh yes I hear it already: COLONIALISM! 

In another development the European Central Bank raised rates by 50 basis points. That was about time. For example last year in my country house prices rose about 15%. That is far too much and mostly caused by the ultra low even negative interest rates from the ECB. And, with unanimity, they also crafted some emergency instrument in case one of the participating country gets under weird market pressure. So it is not meant for countries with high interest rates on their government bonds because of too large deficits or so, but an emergency thing.
Ok, may be that is a good idea. 

Two items today: 

Item 1) Is worn out Russian artillery a root cause for all that weird stuff?
Item 2) May be a BIG WIN for the MATH PROFESSORS! 

 Item 1) Is worn out Russian artillery a root cause for all that weird stuff?

I didn't save the links to the relevant videos but it was reported that Canada already is sending replacement barrels for their howitzers (may be it is for other artillery but you get the point). I have never thought about that: how fast does artillery degenerate? 

After all a standard 155 mm NATO round has a mass of 50 kg, with a big explosion it flies dozens of kilometers. So of course this must wear down the barrel one way or the other.

On top of that we are in day 140+ of what supposedly would be a 3 day war. And given the likely detail that the Russian military was kept out of the loop for planning this war, we can wonder if Russia is capable at all for just standard maintenance of their artillery. Likely the answer is a big NO, likely there is not much maintenance going on over there.

May be that could be a reason for such weird pictures like the next screen shot:  

 

This is a crazy amount of rounds just doing nothing. This is crazy behavior but could it in part be caused by the lack of maintenance?

By all standards this is the weirdest military operation I ever observed... 

 Item 2) May be a BIG WIN for the MATH PROFESSORS! 

I finally took some time to look at the history of that complicated matrix version of the theorem of Pythagoras. All in all it look likely that in the 20-th century there was only that thing with a matrix A multiplied against it's transpose. 

Now my method is very different, I found a way to calculate the volume of the higher dimensional parallelogram directly by making your starting non-square matrix A into a square matrix M.  

That is a little win for me because I gained some insight into how to tackle such a problem. And if I was the first human to do this, you can say it is a big win for me.

Under the assumption I was the first human to pull of this simple trick of squaring a non-square matrix, is it also a big win for the professional math professors? It could be because I know for sure what professional professors like:

That always like to NOT TALK about me. You can argue that is a bit strange because they only have their complex plane, some quaternions and basically that's it. They have no complex numbers above dimension 2 and for them that's ok.

So with a bit of luck they will NOT TALK about my cute matrix for say at least three centuries! Three centuries of total silence! That would be a bi big win for the math professors because they always love to NOT TALK about me and now they can do that for 300 years or longer!

You see me and the professional math professors are now in a so called 'win win' situation: Each of the participants has a big benefit: I have found my cute method and the math professors are glad they can keep their mouths closed like forever...  

__________ 

Ok, almost the  end of this update. I found a funny way to take the sine of a minor matrix against it's parent matrix. So if you are into that mathy stuff you can find the short post on the other website:

On the sine of a matrix minor against it parent matrix. Link used:

It's high time to upload this stuff so I can do other things. Thanks for your attention.

UPDATE: Well well a deal seems to be reached! Unbelievable given the special love between Ukraine and Russia. So my estimation from 24 hours ago was not correct, I think I have to apologize (for the second time already in this war).
Interesting details are that every body is signing treaties with the UN and as such it is avoided that Russia and Ukraine had to sign a mutual agreement.

I would like to thank everyone, in particular the Turks. Turkey might be in huge economical troubles at the moment so it is good to see they don't give up. Well done every body! 

 

Ok, now you are once more at the end of an update.  

 

(20 July 2022) Oh bah, the heat wave is here for the very first day. I don't like it but it is by far not as bad as for example in Italy where entire rivers seem to be running dry or the UK where there were plenty of fires today.
Of course one heat wave is not climate change, climate change is that year in year out it gets a bit warmer on average. And that is happening; a lot of years are record years when it comes to the average temperature, the maximum temperature or the summer average. 

Two items for today: 

Item 1) Shit man, Ruzzia has destroyed all four HIMARS trucks! Really true!
Item 2) The Stern-Gerlach experiment one hundred years old.

 Item 1) Shit man, Ruzzia has destroyed all four HIMARS trucks! Really true!

Russia constantly claims to have destroyed one or more of the HIMARS trucks. So we can safely conclude that they are a good pain in the ass...;) But of course the Russians can use such 'information' for their lovely state television. 

I didn't know the Bulgarian military could be this funny, but they are. 
Title: Russia: Ukraine’s four HIMARS were destroyed, we used PrSMs.
Link used: https://bulgarianmilitary.com/2022/07/18/russia-ukraines-
four-himars-were-destroyed-we-used-prsms/

Someone emailed me and wrote that the HIMARS often feel lonely now they are in Ukraine. No not when they are at work shooting their boom stuff. It is when they are alone they miss their family. 

Luckily their little brothers are on their way, they are not as fast on the road as their HIMARS sisters but man they can do boom stuff big time! 

 

Ok, all that is still missing now are these more advanced anti-air defense systems. It would be great if at least the largest cities get some good air cover against cruse missiles and stuff. 

And, by the way, why don't we hear nothing about those USA drones? Is that where Russia has some success into jamming them? The Russian anti-air stuff can't deal with the rockets from the HIMARS, that is a lucky shot for Ukraine. 

 Item 2) The Stern-Gerlach experiment one hundred years old.

I often ask for say the Ukrainians to tell the truth as it is. Bad news must not be suppressed because otherwise people like me but also the Ukrainians themselves don't have a good picture over what is going on.  

In practice a lot of news is already riddled with faults, often they are tiny and not that significant. That is just unavoidable but you must always try to stay close to the truth. (Unless it is clear you are joking or so.)

Today I came across an article from the Scientific American that was both good and bad. It was good because it came with a picture I had never seen before, it is the original Stern-Gerlach apparatus (see below). And bad because important details like the use of a inhomogeneous magnetic field is used, these details miss.

Another detail that is missing is the fact they used vaporized silver back in the year 1922. But silver only vaporizes at say 2000 degrees Celcius and as such all of your silver atoms are likely not atoms but ions. How they dealt with that I don't know but it must have been an extra hurdle in this one hundred year old experiment.   

Click on the picture for a wider version: 

 

Until about seven years ago I just never heard of this experiment. I tried to understand it but it was hard. How could just one unpaired electron steer an entire silver atom into a particular direction? After all this lonely electron it's mass only about 1/1830 of the mass of a single proton or neutron. And a silver atom has many protons and neutrons.

So what was going on there?

After about two days I arrived at the conclusion that if electrons were magnetic monopoles, that might be a possible explanation. But wasn't that a weird solution? These physics people always say that they can't find magnetic monopoles.

Later I studied the official explanation for this exiting experiment, the overpaid weirdo's think that electrons are tiny magnets that either align with the applied external magnetic field or anti-align with it.

That is far more crazy as my own idea that electrons are magnetic monopoles. After all why should a tiny magnet anti-align itself against a powerful bit external magnetic field? That is one of the detail they never talk about.

Anyway I have given up convincing these physics weirdo's that must be wrong and I have accepted failure on that detail.

In case you have never heard of the Stern-Gerlach experiment but have some interest into the science of physics, you must take a bit of time to understand why this experiment was so important although the people that did the experiment had no clue about what they found. 

Mr. Stern from the Stern-Gerlach experiment became the first assistant to a fresh physics professor named Einstein. So Einstein must have known from the experimental setup of this experiment, but he never jumped to the conclusion that from now on it is nonsense to view electrons as tiny magnets...

Ok, that was it for this update. Thanks for your attention and try to stay cool in this fucking heat. Till updates.    

 

(15 July 2022) There seems to be a bit of progress on the possibility that Ukraine will start exporting grain like wheat and other food again. So lets hope this will not fall apart. For this all to be successful at least in important parts of the Black Sea all military activity must fade away. 

Another complicating factor is that there seem to be laid out about 500 sea mines. If they are all well anchored it is possible to make safe lanes through them without first removing all of them. But if these things go drifting that can give some serious problems... Anyway I am not much of a marine expert, I don't know in detail how good the present day anti-mine capabilities are... 

So lets see how things evolve and hope for the best. 

Two short items for today: 

Item 1) Denys Davydov has an interesting heat map.
Item 2) A fields medal for the Ukrainian Maryna Viazovska.

 Item 1) Denys Davydov has an interesting heat map.

Look in the picture below, likely those maps are made on a 24 hour basis and as such you can more or less see how much boom stuff has gone off. It looks like a significant reduction and of course it is hoped that this stays so. 

 

Hard to say if all those exploded ammo depots already play a role in this. Ok very likely it is but you must never jump to conclusions too fast. But if it stays this way or less that is mighty good news...;) 

 Item 2) A fields medal for the Ukrainian Maryna Viazovska.

I totally missed the news but there are more Field medals out. Field medals are a relatively high prize in the science of math, it is an encouraging prize for youngsters under 40.

It works a bit like the Nobel prizes: University people give medals and money prizes to other university people. I think it has happened only once that the physics Noble prize went to a person that was not working at a university.  

I don't want to sound negative, but there are strong 'ivory tower' elements in both prizes. That does not take away it is always interesting in what the present day prize winners have done to pass the time.

Maryna is a bit famous because she discovered the most ideal packing for a bunch of spheres in 8 dimensions. How to pack a bunch of 8D spheres in such a way it takes the least amount of volume? You don't have to think very long about this problem in order to understand that likely this is hard to crack. 

In order to understand we get all kinds of weird stuff in higher dimensions, we first take a simple example: the square meter.
Now half the sides of this square meter, so now the sides are half a meter. How many of the small stuff do you need to cover the original square meter? That is four pieces of course. 

Well in 8 dimensions, if you cut all sides of a unit cube in half, you need 256 of those smaller cubes to cover the original 8 dimensional cube. Of course putting a sphere in each of those 256 smaller cubes gives some kind of packing, but likely you can improve on that. Well that is the problem that Maryna solved...
I never tried it but likely it is fucking hard.

For those interested her citation pdf is here and a Youtube video is as next:

Wow man, old math problems still standing open? I just wonder what would happen if somebody would find for example the long sought three dimensional complex numbers? Would that not be great news? 

That depends, if the math geek that finds it is an easy exploitable person for the university marketing departments, the universities will have a field day so to say.

And if the math geek is not a member of that university cult, sorry but there is no fame for you. On the other side I am really not waiting for a bunch of journalists asking stupid questions about 3D complex numbers...;) So life isn't that bad over here!

29 Jan 2015: I made a new kind of so called Clifford algebras. As far as I can see it will have no practical value whatsoever. 
It is only six pages long, it contains no definition but only examples.

14 July 2014: Since a lot of young folks are also hanging around here I wrote a simple piece named the Water Planet.
We calculate as a start the number of water molecules in a liter of water; Here is the rest.

19 June 2014; The noble are of product integration is a very seldom observed thing.
That is caused by the fact that in general math professors are relatively dumb people. Ok they are good in reproducing things from the past but a relative more advanced concept like a continuous product is met with a giant vacuum inside their brains.
So if those folks were talented they would use it and given the fact almost nobody uses it, the dire straits of average math departments is clear... 

Ten styles for product integration and product differentiation.  

09 Jan 2015: Later I rewrote the piece a little bit using the curly font from Richard Gill for writing the product integral. 

The content has not changed, the difference is only the curly symbol used... 

Ten styles for product integration and product differentiation with the curly notation

Some old math I wrote about 13 years ago, it is very simple to understand: you can differentiate and integrate all geometrical objects. And when you triangulate a landscape or a movie scene properly you can later in a computer change the position of the camera. Of course you need a new file format because the goody good mpg format won't work.
This might be of future interest for police or stuff like that (you can change the camera viewpoint to that of the victims or that of the criminals. Of course this is not a miracle; missing information can only be repaired at a certain level but anyway... The math is there and it is waiting to be used!
(Ok you also need geometrical integration but that's a cakewalk, some geometric projection theory, lots of self repairing codes and very very difficult: a good camera device. But if these conditions are met you can later change the camera viewpoint...)

(17 Oct 2008) This morning I finished a very simple and non technical article about statistical testing of poisons in food. It is so horrible non technical that even political leaders can understand it's content; only seldom I have sunken so low...

Here is the pdf file.

Sayings from famous and unknown people that shed light on their insights and their emotional daily running system:

Phrase nr one (from Dubya or the present lame duck president of the USA):

"The reason we start a war is to fight a war, win a war, thereby causing no more war!"
--The first Presidential debate

Phrase nr two, also from Dubya but I have to pump it up from my memory so there might be some little faults in it (it was some weeks after the 911 attacks on the USA):

The enemy is so evil that most people in the USA do not know what they do why they do!

Phrase nr three from the former USA secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld (if my memory is correct he spoke these words in the week from 16 to 21 October 2001, at that point in time we were on the height of the anthrax scares): 

And it makes you wonder; How does he do it? And we would like to ask this person to come on over to our side and together fight the war on terror.

Phrase nr four is from me myself & I:

To understand your own 'logical thinking' you must know that logical thinking is only the first derivate of emotion. That is why all attempts towards artificial intelligence have failed: computers do not have emotion build in but we humans, like all other animals,  do.
The above mentioned three phrases of my enemies only expose their emotional system, lets destroy that system...

Phrase nr five is from US celebrity Donald Trump. A few weeks before this the famous Lancet report was published calculating Iraqi civil death toll at 650 thousand (this with a relatively large but acceptable standard deviation):

For myself I use 400 thousand killed.

Phrase nr six is from CNN's Larry King (CNN is received in 200 countries so therefore the CNN management thinks it's wise that Larry King can parade every day one or more American celebrities). When King was asked why he did not use the internet he responded:

There are a billion things on the internet.

Phrase nr seven is one more from the former US secretary of defense. After a few years in the war on terror he was asked what it all boiled down to. He said:

Can we kill the terrorists in a faster rate than the massandra's spit them out?

Phrase nr eight is from Osama bin Laden. The phrase is very worthwhile mentioning because the US CIA folks were in the past very satisfied with 'Just a few weapon deliveries and we lured the Russians into Afghanistan'.

When America needed us to fight their proxy war against Russia they supported us. The moment the Russians left Afghanistan we were irrelevant. 

Phrase nr nine is from US four star general Peter Pace, he made it during a memorial speech on 11 Sept 2006 (exactly five years after the 9/11 attacks from 2001).
At that point in time total US military death toll already stood above the number of civilians killed on 9/11/2001.

Right now the total amount of killed US military members is approaching the civil death toll from nine September 2001.

Phrase nr 10 is again from me myself & I. It is around the rebuilding of the organization after the military campaign in Afghanistan.

Make sure to imitate the way the German army was organized after world war one; That is make sure that every member can function properly until up three hierarchical layers higher. If you do that you can grow with an enormous speed in the future when this is needed.

Phrase nr eleven is also from me myself & I. It is to proof that I can be stupid too. I do not know when I wrote it but it was a long time ago.
I asked the Iraqis the next:

Can you hold on one more year? After that things will get better, I promise.

You just don't imagine how much I have regretted those words, after that the US military came with bonuses of up to 70 thousand dollars for enlisting / reenlisting and how could I have been so stupid as to not have foreseen this?
I mean the Americans run their country on the greenback & why was I outside reality? Why?

Phrase number twelve is from a peace loving female neighbor of mine, her name is Geertruida.

We people we can speak, so we should not fight war but speak with each other until our differences are solved.

Of course I had to remark: Because we have speech we are much better in making war compared to other animal species. 

Phrase nr thirteen is from the present al Qaida leader in Iraq. I mention it because I think it was a very important detail, it was made in his first statement after he took over from Zarqawi.

We need help from scientists, let it be in the field of communications, chemistry, medics, biologicals or whatever what. You can live your dream and kill the Americans on a large scale inside their bases. You can fulfill your scientific dreams.

Phrase nr fourteen is from CNN's war whore Christiana Armanpour. Why do I call a whore where in fact she is a respected senior correspondent?
That is because she understands the difference between a 'commodity driven war' and one that is not driven by that.
In the entire Iraqi war no CNN reporter has emphasized that Iraq is very much 'commodity driven' (read stealing the oil) but when Tony Blair resigns she says:

He wanted military assistance in Bosnia although there are no commodities over there.

(Or words of similar phrasing, I do not recall her exact words but they boiled down to the above.)

Not all my hobbies evolve around war, death and destruction, or financial markets. No, I also like to cook food and stuff. There will not be many recipes but here is the index to some food I made, it is just a small fraction of what I cook. A very small fraction but the goal is to come to a feast meal for the Iraqis and Afghanis. So it likely will take a few more years...
