-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 




(17 May 2024) It looks like it is high time to clean up this homepage once more because it is getting far to long. Anyway it looks like we have a new government over here, that's about 5 or 6 months after the election and as such that is pretty usual over here.
As comparison if you live in a two party democracy, transfer of power is mostly done within a few days. There is never a lengthy process of negotiations needed, if you have a majority you can go at work right away...  

I don't know much about their plans, all I know is that our federal deficit is going to be 2.8% of GDP. Needless to say I completely disagree with that, it is better to budget a surplus of say 1% that can be used in the course of the next fiscal year to compensate for financial trouble on the way.
But we now have a bunch of populists, I am exaggerating a little bit but there are now political parties who's members have a hard time to make financial calculations. After all the accountancy of an entire country is always a rather complicated thing... Lets go to our items for today:   
Item 1) More news from Anthony Blinken & Belbek air base attacked twice.
Item 2) Skipped item on electron potential energy and magnetism. 

 Item 1) More news from Anthony Blinken & Belbek air base attacked twice.

Lately David Cameron from the UK remarked that Ukraine was allowed to use British weaponry against targets inside Russia. And now Anthony Blinken has said words of similar phrasing. Let me quote a bit: 

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Ukraine has to “make its own choice” when deciding to use US-made weapons to strike targets 
inside Russia .

"We've not enabled or encouraged strikes outside of Ukraine, but ultimately, Ukraine has to make decisions for itself about how it's 
going to conduct this war," he said during a visit to Kyiv on May 15. 

Now the Russians are shouting their military doctrine allows for a nuclear response if they are attacked. As far as I know that is correct, that is indeed inside Russian doctrine. But it's pointless remark because neither the UK nor the USA is in fact attacking Russia. No that is done by Ukrainians that indeed have a state named Ukraine and is in response to the attacks from Russia since Feb 2022.

Originally all those rules for Western weaponry for use inside Ukraine only, that was done to de-escalate the situation. But now it has evolved into Russia making escalatory use of that by staging attacks from outside the reach Ukraine had due to these de-escalatory measures. 

Beside that I heard a few times that Russia itself wants some kind of barrier between those parts they have occupied and the rest of Ukraine. Why shouldn't Ukraine have no right on a similar barrier along it's border with Russia? That's  a perfectly mirror arrangement so the Kremlin should not complain upon this small detail. After all my dear Kremlin occupants, you wanted this war with your smaller neighbor yourself. So you have to eat the consequences too, that is rather logical...

There was much much more news of course, like in Kharkiv luckily the situation got a bit stabilized. It seems all in all Ukrainian losses are about one third of the Russian losses, so if you read a number so say 1200 Russian casualties (that is killed and wounded enough) there are about 400 Ukrainians that more or less carry the same fate.
That's the grim reality but it has to be remarked I don't know how solid as an overall statistic this one to three ratio is...  

Grim or not, sometimes the news is funny like the Belbek air base on Crimean soil attacked two nights on a row. Likely there was some more business to do and that in itself brought a wide smile to my lips and face.  

Suchominus has a short 2 minute video out on the second attack. As always click on the picture to land at the video from Suchominus at Youtube:

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Skipped item on electron potential energy and magnetism. 

I have only 10 to 15 minutes left so I have to skip this item. All I wanted was to describe the potential energy that one electron in an electron pair generates on the other electrons in that pair.

And that only using the official version of the potential energy of a dipole magnet in an applied magnetic field, if you use that for the electron you get crazy results within 5 minutes!

But we don't have the time right now so I have to skip it. And once more the results were so crazy that once more I do not understand why the professional physics professors keep on holding to that total crap of electrons being tiny magnets. Sometimes I just wonder what is more stupid: The average Kremlin employee or the average physics professor? 

Lets leave it with that, see you in a future update of this very website. 


(15 May 2024) No intro talk, here are the two item of this update:

Item 1) Kharkiv, Shoigu gone, Belgorod and so on.
Item 2) New math post about eigen vectors of the process of conjugation.

  Item 1) Kharkiv, Shoigu gone, Belgorod and so on.

I was just checking if there was more news of the developments in and around Kharkiv so I click on that BBC video and the first thing that happens is Anothony Blinken stepping out of a sleep train... And yes if you have to travel long distances by train indeed a sleep train is a very good alternative because you arrive a bit more fresh compared to traveling during daytime.

Anyway the situation in Kharkiv looked troublesome but also strange; if the Russians had amounted 50 thousand military, is that enough to take on the entire Kharkiv? No of course not, Kharkiv is too large for that. And the removal of that UA commander from his post also looks weird so we must wait a bit more until there is a bit more clarity.
Also interesting: There was a day with an estimated 1740 casualties on the Russian side, I had been waiting for weeks for such a number because it shows that finally a bit of the military aid has reached the places where it needs to be: In the barrel of an artillery piece or whatever what.
Click on the video for the BBC video:

Shoigu was replaced, some say this is unexpected but didn't one or two of his deputies get arrested on corruption charges? And one of those deputies also has a giant house just like Shoigu but I don't know if he too got it from his daughter the day she went 18.
The new guy also doesn't have military roots, just like Shoigu. His name is Andrei Belousov and I did not try it very long but I could not find his house in an internet search. Why is that important? Well if he lives in a house paid for by his income, his salary, in that case Andrei did not control large streams of money in the past. And as such he is a relative powerless person in Russia.
That doesn't mean he can't be a pain in the ass, if he manages to reform the Russian economy towards a more efficient war economy that would of course be bad news.

From Belgorod was that news of a severely damaged building, the Russians whining terror terror and both parties blaming each other. It could have been anything, from a Ukraine missile gone bad to a Ukraine missile shot down and debris doing the damage. Or a Russian glide bomb going astray.  

The point I want to make is there is only one to blame and that is of course Putin. If he hadn't started this crazy war with all his mentally ill talk about biolabs and other stuff, this Belgorod tragedy would not have happened at all. I forget to save a link to that news so if you missed it and want to know a bit more you must look it up yourself.

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) New math post about eigen vectors of the process of conjugation.

A few days ago I published this new post, all in all I look at seven different spaces and how to take the conjugate. Then make a matrix representation of it and look what the eigen vector related to the eigen value -1 is.

May be for you that is a whole lot of abacadabra but this is very basic math for those who know a bit more about math. Ok ok in over 30 years of time I have never ever seen one person who did the conjugate for say 3D complex numbers in the correct way, but it is an extremely simple matrix if you write is as a matrix representation.

So the key idea of this post is very basic, it is not complicated at all. And that's why I myself am very glad with this post because years ago I always found those pairs of imaginary units that together formed those famous numbers tau.
And yes, they always came in pairs and it had it's own logic. But the matrices I now have in this new post make it totally unavoidable and much more simple as why we have all those pairs in the first place.
Over the years I have learned that it is better to avoid complicated things, after all is you have a good much more simple result much more people understand it and those who want to look at more complicated things can always do that themselves.     

Now mostly the last time I use some pictures of female robots and a bit of my own math to make a picture that you can click on if you want to read that math from my deformed brain. This time I do it a bit different because in the next picture you can see a robo dog on a yoga ball and that is how fast the AI stuff evolves. 

Compare that to the speed of the development of quantum computer based on electron spin or nuclear fusion based on magnetic confinement. Those assholes are stuck in a dead end, make no significant progress at all and in the meantime don't want to revise their idea's upon the magnetic properties of electrons...  

Here you see that robo dog stuff, if you click on it you will land at my post on

End of this post, as always thanks for your attention and see you in another update. 


(10 May 2024) Oh oh, it is time to smash a lot of this homepage into the history pages because once more this homepage is getting too long.
No intro blah blah, just the usual two items. 

Item 1) Russian reserves, a cute drone & an interesting vote in the USA.
Item 2) Plasma fusion instabilities & a tiny chunk of math.

 Item 1) Russian reserves, a cute drone & an interesting vote in the USA.

I didn't save the source but it was told that both the USA and the UK are in favor of confiscating all Russian reserves (so that is also the reserves from the Russian central bank) while the EU is only willing to confiscate the returns on those Russian reserves.

I myself am in favor of such a total confiscation otherwise the Russians will simply not learn from their mistake to do this illegal invasion BUT like I remarked before we must avoid at all costs that central banks are afraid to park their reserves at other central banks or other commercial banks and financial institutions.

The UK & USA proposal took that into account by remarking that if all countries moved at the same time, that minimizes a possible damage to the reserve status the diverse currencies have. This is a very delicate operation (if it goes on) because if there grows distrust in all the reserve stuff we can regret that for decades...
All I can say is I would vote in favor of it and if the EU doesn't want it we must wait again another year or so.

A very different subject: Drones with machine guns! This is a very interesting physics problem, how do you make a drone that will stay stable while shooting bursts of ammo? After all the ammo acts as a strong accelerator and that can make the drone instable.

A naive first idea is that the center of gravity of the drone (included the machine gun) must always lie inside the barrel of the machine gun. That is an engineering challenge, how do you make some dynamical system that keeps such a drone stable? May be some 'tail' with a weight at the end and this tail can move to get a constant center of gravity inside the barrel of the gun. We'll see how that will evolve.

This drone was mentioned in a video from the channel Reporting from Ukraine, click on the picture to land at the video:

Of course much more happened but I want to close this item with that beautiful human being Majorie Taylor Greene. She filed a motion to vacate the chair of the speaker of the house, so the speaker Mike Johnson doesn't get fired. No, his chair will become vacant...

By the way now I follow that Majorie saga a bit more, I can tell you that she is even dumber as our own Geert Wilders. That alone and on it's self is a true miracle... But serious I hoped that when the Ukrainian military aid passed the House that Mike Johnson would not loose his job by that. Well the vote in the American house of reps speaks for itself. There is an MSNBC video linked to it if you want to see that:


I always love it when UK and USA people suddenly know how to pronounce the word 'no'. In my language we write it as 'nee' and that sounds an awful lot like 'nay'. May be it is time to go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Plasma fusion instabilities & a tiny chunk of math.

It's been a few years since I looked at plasma stability in nuclear fusion reactors. After all if my idea's of the magnetic monopole nature of electrons (and protons) was true, that would likely spell disaster for the plasma stability of those torus shaped nuclear fusion vessels.

If true that electrons are magnetic monopoles, the magnetic field that supposedly must contain them will only accelerate the electrons more and more. And the two types of electron monopole will move in opposite directions and make bigger and bigger structures that will accelerate together more and more. Total chaos would erupt in my view. 

Well how are we now a few years later? Not much further, because the physics professors are carved from the same wood as the math professors of course they will make no progress. Will they pick up the idea that electrons can't be the tiny bipolar magnets as they believe? Of course not, they are nothing more as an interesting collection of bags filled with wind.

But there are all kinds of plasma instabilities and I have zero hope left that this technique will help in fighting climate change. Here is a quote about the disruptive behavior that plasma has inside such fusion reactors:  

Nuclear fusion power delivered by magnetic-confinement tokamak reactors holds the promise of sustainable and clean energy. The avoidance of large-scale plasma instabilities called disruptions within these reactorsis one of the most pressing challenges because disruptions can halt power production and damage key components. Disruptions are particularly harmful for large burning-plasma systems. 

And to top it off, here is a cute wiki list with a lot of plasma instabilities: 

Plasma stability

I don't want to waste more time on physics people that believe electrons are tiny magnets, they are born stupid, they will die stupid and in the meantime nothing happens.

A tiny bit of math: I am almost ready with a new math post on the other website. It's about another way of finding the direction of some interesting tangents. Here is just a picture with a few of the results in the diverse spaces.  

Basically it boils down to finding eigen vectors of amazingly simple matrices. And if you have found the eigen vector related to -1 you can shout BINGO because you have found the direction of one of those famous numbers tau.

Ok ok, there is also some conjugate stuff in the new post. 


Lets leave it with that and let me try to upload this to our common garbage can: the internet. As always thanks for your attention and see you in a future update of the posts on this website. 


(08 May 2024) I made a small error last week when I said that Shell had delisted from the Dutch stock market the AEX. That's wrong, a couple of years ago they moved their headquarters to London. Shell is still a part of our AEX as far as I know...
Anyway we had an all time high today, the AEX closed above 900. That's for the first time in it's 41 year history. If you are from another country you might think an index at 900 in 41 years of time is not much, but we have an index that does not use the dividends. So it's just pure stock value while if you reinvest the dividend you will go faster of course. But it's already late so lets go to our two items:

Item 1) Just too much news from Ukraine, just a few details.
Item 2) Quantum spin ice & the 'official' magnetic monopoles. 

  Item 1) Just too much news from Ukraine, just a few details.

Just too much news, from sea drones with air-to-air rockets on them to a Russian speed boat sunk. Interesting economical news were two facts: 

Gazprom reported a loss of 7 billion $, so that's an interesting development. And from the about 800 air planes from Boeing and Airbus that Russia stole after the illegal invasion of Ukraine, now are over 300 out of action because they are used for cannibalization for the spare parts. So a simple estimation says that this year we will pass the mark of half of that stolen fleet out of action. Economical sanctions go slow but they bite more and more while of course a constant supervision of all the stuff is needed. For some strange reason the Russians want to avoid them, that is strange because that is illegal after my humble opinion. 

From the UK came the news that it would be ok to use UK weaponry against Russian targets (that is inside Russia) but of course it had to be military targets. Of course a whole lot of other nations have all kinds of different opinions on this. For example in the beginning Germany wanted only to hand over the Leopard tanks if the USA also delivered tanks.
Well this day was coming for a long time of course and as such if countries decide for themselves if weaponry is allowed on Russian soil, at least they cannot say it's a fight against NATO... Oh you say that the Russians constantly tell all kinds of weird stuff on their state tv about the enemy as they perceive it. For myself speaking I don't think the danger of some extra escalation by Russia is high, you can never know for sure of course but can they say open a second front right now?

There was a display of captured Western military vehicles in Moscow, last week I showed you the Abrams tank while we all gave that tank a standing ovation... Anyway a video that I won't link to said the Russians tried to damage the barrel of one such a tank and it failed. So that's a bit funny news, here is how it looked: 

A few hours back the UK BBC reported that in Ukraine a plot was foiled to kill president Zelensky. This plot was apparently a long time in the making, it started already before the invasion... It's indeed a crazy plan and given the fact Russia is behind it, it could even be true. Click on the picture to land at the BBC video: 

Video title: Russian plot to kill Volodymyr Zelensky foiled, Kyiv says.
Link used:

Lets go to the next item. 

  Item 2) Quantum spin ice & the 'official' magnetic monopoles. 

I found a relative very good video on the subject of spin ice. Of course you are once more invited to think a bit around the fascinating subject of electron spin. That is you can compare for yourself how the official version is (electrons are tiny bipolar magnets) versus what I think of it: electrons are magnetic monopoles that cannot flip their spin state.  

The lady in the video explains why it is called spin ice, that has to do with two spins going in and two going out. And, that is important, she mentions that this configuration minimizes the energy, that's an important principle of course.

Well my version of magnetic monopole electrons does the same thing, yes we must have to north pole electrons and two south pole variants and yes this minimizes the (potential) energy.   

I selected this video because it does what a lot of the video's on magnetism do: they only talk about energy when it makes sense. And if it does not make sense it is often completely ignored.  

Look electrons are tiny things with a small mass, if a bunch of electrons would fell an external magnetic field the only logical energy thing they will do is all 100% of them will align with the applied magnetic field. Only that will lower their potential energy state.

But all those experiments like the Stern-Gerlach experiment show, anyway that is what the physics professors believe, that the tiny electron magnets anti align themselves with the applied magnetic field. And about 50% of the electron will anti align themselves, but where do they get their energy from? Of course the lady in the video carefully skips this energy problem with electrons as being tiny magnets.
The anti alignment is just one of the many many energy problems there are if it were true electrons were tiny magnets. The electron pair is another example, why do two electrons anti align their magnetic fields while forming say a bonding electron pair in a chemical bond?

Why are these people so fucking stupid year in year out? If you view electrons as magnetic monopoles you just don't have all those weird energy problems.

May be the brains of physics people is some form of physics too and as such it prefers to stay in the lowest energy state there is: Being as dumb as possible...

But serious, in it's kind the video is very good. Only the basic idea upon electron spin is not, for the rest it's a perfect 10. As always click on the picture to land at the video:      

Video title: Quantum Spin Ices and Magnetic Monopoles
Link used:

At about 6.00 minutes into the video she begins talking the deeper kind of bullshit: She starts to flip individual electron spins.  

Lets leave it with that because it's late. So thanks for your attention. 


(03 May 2024) It is crazytime again; this calendar year my small portfolio grew by 10.01%. That's much to fast of course but it always comes with pulls and pushes. This day my own bank was to blame, they announced a 2.5 billion € share buy back and as such the stock price jumped by about 6% today. And that while ING hasn't bought any stocks back yet...
It all started as a joke a few years ago, I was annoyed by the total yearly costs of my portfolio so I just thought "Lets buy some ING so the dividends will pay for the costs of my portfolio". Now a few years later I can say: well they surely pay for the costs...
But my first bank stock was ABN-Amro, at the time the Dutch state was still the majority stock holder and that made it safe enough to put some money in. Later came the ING joke and now both banks together are over 10% of the entire portfolio. But lets not talk dumb money and go to the items of today.  

Item 1) An Abrams tank made it to Moscow & more oil refineries hit.
Item 2) More multi worlds stuff & a DESMOS 3D graph.

 Item 1) An Abrams tank made it to Moscow & more oil refineries hit.

Why not give a standing ovation to this M1 Abrams tank, the very first to have made it to Moscow. It is like seeing the oldest man on earth finishing in say the Iron man triathlon, that is the stuff miracles are made of.  

Of course a lot more did happen, it is still an entire war going on along a long long frontline. A few more attacks on oil refineries and/or storage places were there. I don't think attacks on Russian oil refineries will have a huge impact on gas prices for the car at USA pumps.
Well inside Ukraine they likely understand it is not wise to maximize the probability that Donald Trump will win the next USA presidential election.

But for the time being I view it is just like the Russian Black Sea fleet: Every ship sunk is just one ship less to sink. The goal is not to sink just one ship but the long term goal is to wipe out the entire Russian Black Sea fleet. And for those oil refineries it is the same, it has to happen anyway.  

After all if a main goal for Europe is to cripple the Russian economy such that they cannot repeat to another EU nation as what they are doing to Ukraine, it has to happen they will have almost no refinery capacity at all... It's as simple as it is. I had two pictures from a Newsweek article, click on the picture in case you want to read that article:

Let us move our attention to the next item. 

 Item 2) More multi worlds stuff & a DESMOS 3D graph.

I showed you the two television physics professors Brian Greene & Sean Correll lately. Now by sheer coincidence it was TODAY that they had a video out TOGETHER!!!! 

And see how beautiful they look, it is a perfect pair of television physics professors. They should make a movie poster out of it: Hunt for the 26 dimensions of string theory.  

Anyway I did indeed see all 35 minutes of the video so that you don't have to and as such you will have no nightmares today related to this video. It's all the usual stuff like the probabilistic nature of quantum mechanics, that should explain why electrons are in a superposition of spin up and spin down almost BY DEFINITION! And of course our weirdo's Brian & Sean are full of confidence because there is plenty of experimental evidence to go along with their wildest dreams.
Do they see it as a problem we don't have a solid sequential or repeated Stern-Gerlach experiment? Of course not, talking about spinning electrons makes much better television circus, so they only do that.  

And see how beautiful they look, for sure a golden couple. I would not advice it but if you want to see the video click on the picture of the golden couple:

After all that crap let us floss our brain by looking at some simple math so we can ignore the television professors. The free DESMOS online package also has a 3D variant and I experimented a bit with it. I tried to visualize the 3D complex exponential with it, that is the red graph below. The blue graph is the surface where my beloved 3D numbers have a determinant of one. The small purple line is a new way of finding the tangent at the number 1.

As such I more or less have found a new way of finding the tangent at 1 for what math professors would name a Lie group.  

The 3D DESMOS package isn't bad, anyway it acts as a perfect antidote to the wisdom of the television physics professors. Lets leave it with that and as always thanks for your attention. 


(01 May 2024) We had the first warm day over here, anyway I consider 20 degrees as being warm... Lets go to our items for today.

Item 1) Heinrich Torsten on some UA troubles.
Item 2) Two physics video's; an interesting combination.

  Item 1) Heinrich Torsten on some UA troubles.

This day I didn't had the time to listen to Heinrich his video (he's from the Military & History video channel) so this evening I looked it up again. And today he is not mild upon the things that more or less go wrong in Ukraine. 

And yes a lot of those problems have already emerged in other ways or video's. The lack of manpower is just one of them. What I found interesting is that he talks about the influence the long shortage of ammo & weaponry has on the recruitment effort. I hadn't thought about that one and of course that too is not a positive thing.   

Mobilize more men or is that already maxed out? You can also think that after two years all who want to fight have already done so. Questions like that is for the Ukrainians to solve of course. Well I wish them luck with it because these are hard questions for a society. 

The video is about half an hour long, as always click on the picture to land at the video on Youtube: 

Video title: Frontlines Crumbling in the East, Past Failures Compound. US buy Planes from Kazakhstan. Link used:

Lets hope the logistics chains will come big enough to help the UA military forces a little bit. It has been a long wait those 6 months without supplies. 

Of course there was much more news on this topic but it's now time to go to the next item for today. 

  Item 2) Two physics video's; an interesting combination.

The television professor in the first video is Sean Conner, likely you have seen him before because he is very good as a television professor. He's the guy that promotes the many world hypotheses of quantum mechanics, that is the idea that with every (tiny) quantum effect or outcome the universe splits in two or more branches. And that all because otherwise parts of the wave function would collapse and if the many world hypothesis is true that evil collapse would not happen... I have no particular opinion on this hypothesis beside I consider it nonsense and not a scientific thing.

Now Sean himself starts talking on the Stern-Gerlach experiment, he gives the official version of electron spin (quantisized angular momentum and the vector can point in every direction only up or down).
Of course the usual stuff of the electron being in a super position of the two spin states, that famous mixture of spin up and spin down.
And believe it or not, he finishes it all of with saying that in case there is not enough experimental evidence for something, you should be careful with that...   

So if idiotery can be mapped on a scale of 1 to 10, Sean should come in like a big fat 9 on this scale of idiotery.  

For example precisely what experiment told us that electrons can be in a super position? For the professional freaks of quantum mechanics the SG experiment itself is a perfect and pristine example where spin super positions break down due to an applied external magnetic field.

But for a person like me that thinks electrons are magnetic monopoles that carry a permanent magnetic charge just like their electric charge, the SG experiment is also a validation of what I think.

Anyway if you see a television professor, not only Sean but all of them, talk about electron spin, take it with a grain of salt. And if they want more money for quantum computing, just say no.

After so much blah blah blah on my behalf, here is the first video: 

Video title: Physicist explains quantum mechanics | Sean Carroll and Lex Fridman. Link used:

The nonsense Sean is telling is deep in stupidity; as far as I know reality there is no so called repeated or sequential Stern Gerlach experiment done ever. My dear Sean, it is very much possible that electron spin has nothing to do with probability.  

Just like you try to measure the electric charge of the electron or it's mass, it has nothing to do with probabilities.

The lack of a serious repeated or sequential SG experiment brings us to the second video of this item: some short videos upon key experiments done in physics. It is from the Unzicker guy who is about the opposite of a television physics professor. But don't get fooled: He is a staunch believer in electrons as tiny magnets too so likely he will have no problem at all with a lack of a repeated SG experiment.

(26 April 2024) On I came across that funny article as why Shell is pissed with the London Stock Exchange and threatens to go to New York... Well a few years ago Shell delisted from the Amsterdam stock market and one of the arguments was the dividend tax. At that point in time I already doubted how stupid the Shell management was, but I kept my shares and did not sell them.

Anyway now a few years further down the timeline we can conclude that shell management is a bunch of so called overpaid weirdo's. Here is a funny quote: 

Sawan has also expressed deep frustration by investors' under-appreciation of the financial performance of the company, as well as the British government’s over-taxation of its profits.

Oh oh the energy transmission is very important but all that Shell management does is whine that their options and shares are not that high. As if these crybabies have such low salaries to start with... 

Lets go to the two items of today: 

Item 1) The USA Ukraine aid bill is now law & more UA stuff.
Item 2) New math post & good video from Neil Turok on physics.

 Item 1) The USA Ukraine aid bill is now law & more UA stuff.

I tried to find a photo of the signing ceremony in order to get an image that was as boring as possible but I could not find anything. But the Ukraine aid bill is now already law so they don't let grow much grass over it.

So I settled for the next picture on the scale of boredom, that is likely a work meeting at the White House, if you click on the picture you land at

There were many more developments of course, one of them is that indeed there seem to be ATACMS now and these go even a bit further as the British/French Storm Shadow/SCALP missiles. Now Ukraine can cover all of the territories occupied by Russia, so that is a welcome development.

I want to remark that the ATACMS could reach targets deep inside Russia, that's not allowed of course but it shows the level of trust the USA political  leadership has in it's Ukrainian counter part. And I heard some rumors those ATACMS are already in Ukraine since February? Well that's interesting if true.


At last a few remarks on oil prices, it is well known that in the USA the consumer prices at the pump are a political thing. They even use their strategic oil reserve for dampening out the fuel pump prices. So they are sensitive to that. 

Now lately there were a bunch of Ukrainian drone attacks against Russian oil refineries. And can such attacks really drive up the prices for American consumers inside the USA for what they pay for their gas for their cars? 

Well yes and no and partially yes and/or partially no. Oil markets are very emotional and by that I mean they do react on geo political situations. It's not always rational but given the importance of oil that is also understandable.

But if Ukraine takes out Russian oil refinery capacity that means there is less refined product inside Russia while there is more crude to export by Russia. Furthermore, as far as I know, there is zero trade in refined oil products going from Russia to the USA. 

So my estimation is that more attacks on Russian oil refineries will likely not lead to a scenario of too high prices at the gas pumps in the USA. So a refinery here or a refinery there is not much of a future problem all in all. 

But never forget, oil markets can be emotional so that is a detail to keep an eye on. Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) New math post & good video from Neil Turok on physics.

The latest math post was published yesterday, it is very simple because it just looks at a set of so called non-invertible numbers. Non invertible means you can't divide by them, 2D number systems like those 2D hyperbolic complex numbers have a lot of numbers that you can't divide by.
Title & link:  

A look at the set of non invertible hyperbolic 2D complex numbers.


On a video channel upon physics I came across a relatively good video that contains an interview with Neil Turok about "The problem with theoretical physics".

That is a very funny title because there is not 'one problem'  but just an infinite set of problems. For myself speaking only, I think that both theoretical and experimental physics do weird when it comes to electron spin since the year 1922.

But physics people themselves don't have any problem with all the weird things they believe about electron spin, for example there is not much experimental proof for their idea's. That in itself is a problem.  

Let me stop talking and let you enjoy the video just like I did because it does not contain anything about electron spin. So I did not have to listen to all kinds of blatant nonsense.

By the way, Neil thinks that the science of physics is so unproductive since say 50 years. So he is much more positive as I am with my Stern Gerlach experiment from the year 1922. Click on the picture for the video:

(24 April 2024) What I find one of the disadvantages of getting older is that it is so hard to get completely exhausted during physical activity. I really miss that, I always slept perfectly on it. But it is what it is, you can't turn back the clock and get a fresh body again. And with the years comes a bit of wisdom, it's not real wisdom but more the stuff you learned from your biggest mistakes. A bit of wisdom is always welcome of course.
Lets go to the two items for today. 

Item 1) Congress passed the UA aid bill, now it's in the Senate.
Item 2) New math post is almost finished, it's mostly high school math.

 Item 1) Congress passed the UA aid bill, now it's in the Senate.

Last Saturday the US House, that's their parliament, passed the aid to Ukraine in a 311:112 ratio, so 311 members in favor of supporting Ukraine. Well I have no official job or so related to Ukraine but I want to thank the US lawmakers for their support.

I could not find a screenshot back but more as half of the Republicans voted against it, that's likely one of the reasons it took so long to pass. For the time being it looks like speaker Mike Johnson's job is secure and that's a good thing. If after doing such a vote all kinds of hell breaks loose, that is not a good thing of course and could hinder future aid.

Of course it's still a few days waiting because it has to pass the senate too and after that Joe Biden has to sign it into law. And all those military logistic chains have to come out of hibernation or, as we say it here: they have to come out of their winter sleep.

The New York Post had a funny cover, click on the picture for their article if you want to read it:    

Title: ‘Moscow Marjorie’ Taylor Greene, GOP rebels defeated as House passes $61B in Ukraine aid package.
Link used:

There was a bit of tweaking done to the aid package, quote:

The House rejiggered the Senate package by upping the amount of funding that goes toward stockpiles of American weapons and munitions, 
adding oversight conditions on Ukraine assistance and doubling the amount of aid to Israel.

Comment: I can't remember to have ever seen this work "rejiggered" before, it is clear what it must mean and what would the rock band the Rolling Stones think of this all? Likely Mr. Jagger will  hang on to the opinion that it should be rejaggered...

But serious, it's now in the Senate for a 30 hour long (sic!! 30 hours long?) thing. Is that a 30 hour long debate around the clock? In that case you can say that American senators actually work for their money?
Here's a quote from The Hill:

Senators will hold the first procedural vote on the $95 billion aid package Tuesday afternoon, starting a 30-hour clock toward a vote on final passage. That would take place Wednesday night absent a deal on amendments, with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) increasingly likely to let the clock wind down instead.      

Aritcle title: Senate set to advance Ukraine aid after roller-coaster House battle. Link used: senate-vote-ukraine-aid-israel-taiwan/

At last there was some anti TikTok legislation in the bill, to be honest I am in favor of scrapping such websites. Not only because of national security reasons but the first teenagers that can't view a whole Youtube video of say 10 minutes long are already there. They have an attention span of less then 10 minutes, that is not what we should have as future adult citizens.
I don't know how widespread this short attention span problem is, it it's only a few for every million teenagers it's not a real problem. But if it's widespread why not ban such websites? You can say nanny state this or nanny state that but in the end those teens need a bit of protection I just guess...

Lets go to the next item.  

 Item 2) New math post is almost finished, it's mostly high school math.

On the other website there is now a collection of about 260 posts, but the last one I am working on must be one of the simplest of all math posts out there. Now I say it's mostly high school math and yes that is correct because we are just looking at a few quadratic expressions. But of course in most countries on all high schools they don't even get the ordinary complex numbers. Let alone those fancy hyperbolic complex numbers that I am crafting lately.

In the new post I only look at the set of (hyperbolic) complex numbers that you can't divide by. Now for normal people that is only the number zero, you can't divide by zero but there are many many math spaces where there are non zero numbers that you can't divide by.

For example five dimensional complex numbers also have five eigen values, as long as not all eigen values are zero such a 5D complex number still ain't zero. But you can't divide by it because it also has eigen values that are zero. By the way if for some strange reason you meet a math professor, never talk about eigen values of higher dimensional complex numbers. That only destabilized their brains, no you must simply ask: "Can all people do math or do you need to be crazy in the first place?"

Now in the next picture you see two complex numbers z1 and z2 and if you multiply them you get zero. Well that's all fine but if you want to check it yourself you must use the rule i^2 = -1 + 3i. So it's a little bit different from the ordinary complex plane that is ruled by i^2 = -1

May be it is time to get all this stuff to the biggest garbage can humanity has: The internet. As always thanks for your attention.  


(19 April 2024) The two items for this update are: 

Item 1) NATO on Ukraine aid & who's talking on Russian state tv?
Item 2) One more picture with those four integrals.

  Item 1) NATO on Ukraine aid & who's talking on Russian state tv?

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg came out saying more or less that Ukraine aid should not get cut because of making the NATO norm and enlarging the own arsenals. I agree with that, most countries are spending more on defense anyway and likely that will stay some time.
It's a bit weird to look at our own stockpiles and/or new weaponry that is there for some vague accountancy 2% rule if that can be used in Ukraine.
On the other hand like I remarked before; as a country you can't give all away because you have a responsibility to your own population too.  

Take for example the famous 155 mm artillery shells, countries that share a border with Russia must of course have a much larger stockpile of those as say in my own Dutch country. Anyway here is a quote from 

"If allies face a choice between meeting NATO capability targets and providing more aid to Ukraine, my message is clear: Send more to Ukraine," he said, adding that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy would attend a NATO-Ukraine Council on Friday.

Now we can look at a nice picture of the NATO flag: 

This weekend there is a vote in the US congress on UA aid, so once more lets hope for the best.

And in a somehow more light subject; Who's talking on Russian state tv? Guess what? It is Majorie Taylor Green! Now I've seen her a couple of times I agree that indeed she is an attention seeker. Well I have zero rights to criticize her because in our parliament we have our Geert Wilders. And our Geert too often has trouble grasping complicated things. For example before Brexit he thought that it would be good for the Dutch economy to leave the EU and single market. Oh oh Geert, you are such a nutjob...   

CNN has a short video out on the occasions where MTG is on Russian state tv. Now Majorie pondered the question as why send weapons to those fascists in Ukraine? And of course such wise questions will be applauded long and hard on Russian state tv. I think they love her, may be she should get her own show on tv over there.  

If you want to see the video, it is on the CNN website. This time I tried directly the CNN website and skip Youtube, but you don't get less advertisements. So the benefits of skipping Youtube are marginal in this case. Anyway here's the thing:

Now of course I can't say too much about all that US political stuff, it is lets say internal stuff. But I hope that speaker Mike Johnson does not loose his job because of this... Lets leave it with that and we go to the next item. 

 Item 2) One more picture with those four integrals.

This will be the third picture of the latest math post so it's all in all a bit over the top. But there is not some form of autistic rule that says you can't place more then two picture advertisements for new math posts. No there isn't, beside that my advertisements are fun to look at and that is not something you can say for that Youtube stuff with all those ads during video's.

No magnetism rant this week although today I observed US television physics professor Brian Greene stating it was so wonderful that they have measured the electron magnetic dipole moment to a degree of 12 decimals! Well Brian, I agree that this is an astounding result especially given the fact there is no fucking proof at all that electrons are tiny magnets.
So no magnetic rant today, only repeating what Brain said and remark he is a string theory kind of guy. That's a breed of theoretical physics people that easily believe all kinds of weird things. Weird things like the sum of all integers: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 etc equals -1/12.     

Back to math and neglect all that low IQ stuff that professional physics professors think about magnetism, the beauty of these four integrals is not in finding their precise value. The beauty lies in the fact you can integrate at all on spaces like these 2D complex hyperbolic numbers.  

That was it for this week, as always thanks for your attention. 


(17 April 2024) Our senate has voted to halt all gas extraction here in the province where I live. So after 61 years no more gas from Groningen, this is some long sought end to an era where all in all we locals did not profit much from all that gas pumped out from under our feet.
Lets go to the two items for this update:  

Item 1) UA aid goes for a vote in the USA & a great Russian dam.
Item 2) And another hyperbolic complex number post.

 Item 1) UA aid goes for a vote in the USA & a great Russian dam.

Today it emerged that US house speaker Mike Johnson puts forward those foreign aid bills, it is now separated into four pieces and the aid for Ukraine is one of those pieces. It has been a long wait and hopefully we will now finally have some clarity. All I can do is hope that it will pass, as always hope a bit for the best while prepare for the worst...

Anyway I selected a video from Morning Joe from MSNBC because that was the video where I heard the news for the first time. Click on the image to jump to the video on Youtube:

Konstantin from the channel Inside Russia was a bit angry again on all that mismanagement inside Russia. And yes if I was a Russian citizen I too would not like all that monkey stuff the Kremlin is doing year in year out. Russia could have been a relative rich country but as it goes over there decade in decade out, it an interesting mix of weird stuff.

Here you see the first dam that reportedly failed, as you see it is just a pile of loose mud. I wonder what the engineers working for our Dutch so called Waterstate think of such a technical marvel as that Russian dam...
It has to be remarked however that in my country we have hundreds of kilometers of clay dykes to keep the river water out. And yes those dams or dykes can become weak under certain conditions like water saturation of such a dam or dyke. So what do you do in such a case? As always we prepare for the worst while hoping for the best.
And what did those Russians do? Well they prepared for nothing and took another bottle of Vodka I just guess... Clcik on the image for Konstantin his video:

Originally I planned to write upon oil prices today but the Ukraine aid came along so may be next update or next week or just never ever. Lets go to the next item. 

  Item 2) And another hyperbolic complex number post.

Last week I finished that latest math post on those interesting complex numbers that don's work with circles or ellipses but with hyperboles. It's all in all an amazing number of months I am only doing this kind of relatively simple math. But I still like it and it is not boring at all so why not scrape the barrel one more time?

The post is a bit double in the sense I am now using integral calculus in order to calculate that famous number tau on this space. For readers who know a tiny bit about complex numbers, a number tau is a logarithm of an imaginary unit. Because this is a plane I write that imaginary thing as i and if you take the logarithm of it you have found a number tau.

But I already calculated that number tau in another manner, but I had a few not so mathematical reasons to write this post anyway. One reason is to write down the expression for the inverse, that is funny because it looks just like the one the professional math professors use on the complex plane but now you have nothing of that norm stuff they so worship at the universities. And another reason is that I wanted to show you that cute expression for a complex number z and what happens if you multiply that against it's conjugate? You can see that in the picture below, it is directly related to the sum of the imaginary unit i and it's inverse. This expression holds on an amazing amount of spaces, anyway I could not find any kind of counter example so this is more or less what it is: good math. 

Title: Integrals for the number tau for the 2D multiplication defined by i^2 = -1 + 3i

For those who know a bit of the complex plane: On the complex plane the inverse of i equals minus i and as such on the standard complex plane this reduces to that circle stuff like in x^2 + y^2.


Ok it is time to wrap up and close this update. I want to close with an old piece of music from the 1980-ties. It is a cover of a piece of music or a song known as The Sultans of Swing from the band the Dire Straights. It's a cover of that old song and I found it very refreshing. Not that the Dire Straights are a bunch of yeast infected pussies, no of course not. They are still proud carriers of the most important piece of meat there is in this universe: The human male penis...
But serious, the old song was very good and I like this cover a lot because it is a bit different. It is hard to say if it's 'better' because what defines precisely what 'better' is when it comes to music? Sometimes it is very obvious, but saying that a cover is 'better' as the original somehow does not ring a bell over here.

Ok, lets try to get this uploaded to the biggest garbage can humanity has: the internet. As always thanks for your attention. 


(12 April 2024) Two items for this update:

Item 1) Great Russian innovations & more UA stuff.
Item 2) Cute inversion formula & some crazy spin stuff.

 Item 1) Great Russian innovations & more UA stuff.

I got a screenshot from the Military & History channel of that wonderful Russian tank. Now often Russian infantry rides on top of a tank or an armored vehicle to the place where they are supposed to fight. But they get often attacked with drones or other weaponry.
So a bunch of Russians modified a tank with metal sheets and they were so proud on their labor that they posted it online. The Ukrainians can read and soon figured out where the location was. Anyway the tank is no longer...

It was made such that infantry soldiers could hide under the metal sheets.

In another development I saw that weird female Majorie Taylor Green stating that organizations like the FBI and the justice department should have their funding withdrawn because they investigate that smart and wise fellow named Donald Trump... I think together with our Geert Wilders they would make a perfect couple and with a bit of luck our Geert will go to the USA and live happily ever after...


Suchominus had another satellite image of that ship that was damaged in the Baltic, likely in Kalinigrad (I hope I spell it correctly). By all standards it is still amazing if indeed it was an Ukrainian action. I think the Russians don't mind because they have plenty of ships left so what't the problem?

Remark it is not utterly clear if indeed this is the Serpukhov, but it is indeed very likely. Click on the picture for the short video:

I had vaguely hoped there would be a vote this week in the American congress but as far as I know there is still a lot of republican infighting going on. So as always we have to hope for the best while prepare for the worst. It's a complicated situation, I understand that, but I don't like it if so many Ukrainian soldiers die for only weird political stuff...  

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Cute inversion formula & some crazy spin stuff.

I am almost ready with a new post on those cute hyperbolic complex numbers. Here I use integrals to calculate the number tau for that complex plane, that is a bit double because a few posts back I did the same using matrix diagonalization.

But I wanted to look how those integrals looked and I also wanted to pen down how you find the inverse on such a modified complex plane. The formula you can see below looks just like finding the inverse on the complex plane.

It's also a small insult or a joke towards the math professors because they always think that complex numbers have a strong relation with norms. That's bullshit, the underlying mechanism is always determinants on all spaces you can think of. It is just that in the standard complex plane the math professors use, the determinant is the square of the norm.

For example in the picture below you see a z and a z with a line over it, this z with a line over it is a so called conjugate. And if you multiply them you get the equation of a hyperbole, the joke of course is that there is no way you can turn that into a norm. Of course I hope the math professors don't like the joke but in practice I expect them not to read it. After all they won't get extra funding for math like that nor can it be published in standard math journals. 

For myself speaking I am glad you can use such a simple formula, ok ok you have to figure out what the conjugate is and that is a job you must not trust a math professor to do. But in higher dimensions say 3D or 4D complex numbers this just does not work, there it is always much more difficult to find the inverse... 


A tiny bit on electron spin. I think electrons are magnetic monopoles just like they are electric monopoles. Physics professors think that electrons are tiny magnets that either align themselves with an applied magnetic field or anti align themselves. How that works they never explain but they themselves never have any problem with a 100% lack of explanation. Just like they don't have any experimental evidence that electrons are tiny magnets, why should it be a problem if there is no evidence if they get billions of funding for say quantum computing?

I wanted to show you one of those dumb videos they have about quantum entanglement but I could not find that video back on Youtube. It was one of those video's where they have two electrons and if they separate them and one goes to the Andromeda galaxy they claim that if you measure the spin of the electron here on earth that somehow influences the spin of the electron in the Andromeda galaxy. That is the principle of non-locality and there are even Nobel prizes handed out for that.

But if electron spin is not a stupid tiny magnet but a permanent monopole charge, of course you will find a strong correlation between such measurements. All in all this Nobel prize committee is a true elite in the sense it is hard to find another bunch of overpaid snobs.

Lets not digress into politics, in the picture below you see once more how these weirdo's explain how two electrons with opposite spin have zero magnetism. And these people are truly very very weird: the electron is supposed to be a point particle with two magnetic poles but that has NOT zero magnetism? 


May be it is better to end this update. As always thanks for your attention. 


(10 April 2024) Here are the two items for this update:

Item 1) UA stuff: Russian ship in the Baltic sea damaged???
Item 2) Yet more on sequential Stern-Gerlach experiments.

 Item 1) UA stuff: Russian ship in the Baltic sea damaged???

No idea how they did it but Ukraine claims to have damaged a Russian ship in the Baltic sea... There was some short video out where a fire started on that ship and now it is seriously damaged. It would be great that in the future nowhere on this planet Russian ships will be safe once more demonstrating the stupidity of Putin when he started his special military operation. So if it's all correct this Baltic sea thing is indeed a very special thing...

And now Estonia came out with the news they too found a million shells for Ukraine. What I don't understand in this all is why Germany some time ago had to report the million shells will be delivered much much later. Ok, those were likely new shells but now time and again countries coming out with hundreds of thousands found shells is a bit weird in that context.
Of course a small country like Estonia can't pay for a million shells but other countries will likely be very willing to get shells to Ukraine in general and to the front line in particular. UATV had a short video on this important detail, as always click on the picture to land at the video: 


Video title: Estonia Found a Million Shells for Ukraine! When Will They Deliver Them? Link used:

In the USA the political situation is still far from clear when it comes to the Ukraine aid package. There is so much military hardware over there that just isn't here in the EU so it's still very important.

For the first time I dived a bit deeper into it and in the USA they seem to have a USA version of our own Geert Wilders, you know that walking piece of dogshit we have in our parliament. Her name is Majorie Taylor Greene and according to some other republicans she is an attention seeker.
She says weird stuff like: "If our constituents find out so much aid is going to Ukraine they are just so mad" (Or words of similar phrasing, I did't copy her exact words.) Well even if that is the case, if those people are mad you Majorie have made some serious blunder into explaining why this aid is important. Now I understand there are some issues with border security over there and yes most countries dislike it when there is just too much illegal immigration.

May be this illegal immigration causes some trouble here and there, may be a few extra deaths but that's it. Yet among the UA army there are already hundreds of extra soldiers dead because the aid from the USA stopped six months ago.

It is reasonable bordering on wisdom to classify Majorie Taylor Greene as a attention seeking bag of acne. Why not? I have never seen such a walking bag before except of course for our Geert Wilders. But now I've seen a video of her she has indeed similarities with our bag of dogshit Geert, it's mostly emotional talk without much deeper stuff going on.

I wouldn't advice it but below you can click on a link to a CNN video where you can see her in full action. I didn't make a screen shot because I don't want to damage my computer. Here is the link: 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene ramps up complaints against Speaker Johnson 

But all in all it's a complicated situation over there, that is why all those months I never commented on it. It's to easy and cheap to blame it all on speaker Johnson like so many commentators did. 

As so often lets hope for the best while prepare for the worst, but every day people die for no reason at all and also troublesome: with more ammo more Russian soldiers would be dead. 

 Item 2) Yet more on sequential Stern-Gerlach experiments.

Last week I showed you the website of the Nobel prize committee explaining that there was never ever a Nobel prize handed out for a so called sequential Stern Gerlach experiment.

I considered it important enough that yesterday I decided to write and extra post on this detail over on the other website. Now why is it so important that in one hundred years of time there is no sequential experiment done that was successful?

Well if there was, that would validate a basic principle of quantum mechanics that if not measured quantum particles will always be in a super position of states. And that is what present day people from the science of physics use to build their quantum computers.

For say two decades now those physics people try to make qubits based on electron spin, the fact they don't succeed is no problem at all. They always need more and more funding and of course once more they won't succeed.

For the last decade I myself tried to explain again and again that it is just not logical that electrons are tiny magnets and it is very likely the magnetic properties of the electron are just like the electric properties: A permanent and monopole charge.

After nine or ten years I can safely conclude that I have failed, logic does not work with these people. That is strange because after all they are supposed to be scientists, they get their salaries and laboratories all from tax payer money. So shouldn't that make them a bit more humble?

Of course not, these people are also too stupid to understand say 3D complex numbers and as such they are also too stupid to see all that is wrong with electrons as tiny magnets.

For example these weirdo's think of electrons as point particles, but if that is true in that case almost by definition every electron must be neutral under the application of magnetic fields.

This is absolutely not what we observe in say the Stern Gerlach experiment from the year 1922.     

Anyway it is time to update my little rant and I just keep on pondering as why they are so fucking stupid. If you click on the next picture that has nothing to do with the post itself you will land on the other website: 

Title of the new post, again the integrals above have nothing to do with it because they are from the next yet unpublished post: 

Nobel prize for a sequential Stern Gerlach experiment? Nope, nada, njet, nein & NEE! 

Let me end this update and why are physics people so stupid on this tiny electron detail? Thanks for your attention and have a logical life or try to get one. 


(05 April 2024) Here we go with the usual two items:

Item 1) NATO 75 years old & the 100 billion proposal.
Item 2) Website Nobel prize says: No repeated SG experiments done ever.

 Item 1) NATO 75 years old & the 100 billion proposal.

Ha, all of a sudden the NATO is 75 years old. I didn't see that one coming, at least it was not on my mind at all. NATO has been a remarkable alliance, the only time the article 5 was activated was after the 911 attacks. Given the timespan of 75 years that is amazingly little war for so many countries.  

And that's a bit of a paradox: Simply because you're a NATO member, year in year out there is no war and as such the tendency to spend less and less on defense. If you click on the picture you land at a NATO HQ webpage a bit describing how stuff went for those 75 years:


Then all of a sudden there was this proposal, it's just a proposal right now, to create a fund of say one 100 billion € and that fund is going to Ukraine. It would be a multi year fund of five years so about 20 billion €/year.

The goal is to make the aid to Ukraine a bit less of a political thing, if it's a NATO commitment in that case member countries just have to follow suit. So we won't come into a situation of say in my own country that Geert Wilders becomes pm and from that position he starts to hinder all UA aid as much as possible. And the big wildcard is of course the USA elections at the end of this year.  

Now how expensive is such a fund? It sounds impressive and it is a lot of money but say if that money would be coughed up by only EU citizens and there are about 400 million of them. (Yes I know you should look at the total population of the NATO members, but I am to lazy to look that up.)
Well 20 bilion divided by 400 million is 50 € on average for every citizen per year of funding. That means there is hardly any borrowing needed for such a fund or borrowing needed at all.

At last I want to remark that in the present situation it is often individual countries that make a pledge to deliver something. For example Germany and the Leopard tank stuff or air defense stuff and like in the case of my country and Denmark do a bit on the F-16 stuff, these countries now feel ownership of this because they are sovereign and did choose themselves to do so.
It is just like in say a job; if you have to do something you are fully committed to you will often go the extra mile while if you must do stuff you don't support at all the attitude will be completely different.    

All in all it might be wise to put the aid to Ukraine on a bit more distance from volatile political emotional things, but it should not get to centralized where a central command is micro managing all kinds of details. 

So all in all I think this is worth pondering, lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Website Nobel prize says: No repeated SG experiments done ever.

Back in the year 1922 there was that famous experiment done known as the Stern-Gerlach experiment. Later the results of that experiment were contributed to electrons have a particular magnetic property know as spin.

Electron spin is believed by physics professors as electrons being tiny magnets, but they have no proof for that it is just a belief that just goes unchallenged all the time year in year out.

I think it is bullshit to think of electrons as tiny magnets with two magnetic poles. I think the electrons have a magnetic charge so that they are magnetic monopoles and as such this charge is just like the electric charge: permanent and monopole. 

Now with this discovery of electrons having magnetic properties there is a whole mathematical apparatus developed to describe it all, that is known as spinors. And all that spinor nonsense says that often the electrons are in a superposition of the two possible spin states.
And if you measure the electron spin this is always determined by probabilities because that is the nature of quantum mechanics.

Needless to say I think that is bullshit because the magnetic charge is permanent.

The spinor stuff also says that if you repeat the spin measurement with a magnetic field in another direction, you get that famous sine of half the angle gives the probability. (Actually you must square it but bear with me.)

Now if the in the last century an experimental physics person would have performed a successful repeated or sequential series of Stern-Gerlach experiments, with almost 100% probability this person would have gotten a Noble prize.

Ok ok, such a person must be a university employee because the Nobel prize is one of those prizes "For the elites and by the elites".

Anyway, such a Nobel prize has never been handed out.

This week I finally visited the website of the superior elites know as the Nobel prize committee and guess what? They have a functioning search applet on their very website...

So I did a few searches, one search was just "Stern Gerlach" and that returned 12 results. The second search was "Stern Gerlach experiment" and that returned only 6 results.

Anyway it was just the bag of rotten garbage as I expected: In a full century of time there was never ever a sequential SG experiment done. I still can't find it and now I am looking for about 10 years of time to find that experiment...

If you want for yourself you can check it out at the website of the elite of the elite known as the Nobel prize committee. Click on the picture to land at their home page and perform the search for yourself: 


At last I want to remark that likely all spinor stuff for photons is correct, may be some details are not correct but all in all it looks ok. But spinors for electron spin is totally one 100% bullshit just like those Pauli matrices. 

After all, the electron is a magnetic monopole with a permanent magnetic charge. Lets leave this update with that, as always thanks for your attention. 


(03 April 2024) Oh oh, no intro talk not even on that juicy detail that it could have been that RUSSIAN MONEY went to DUTCH POLITICIANS! No no no, no intro talk.

Item 1) Next week more clarity upon UA military aid? Plus oil & gas.
Item 2) New math post on those hyperbolic complex numbers. 

  Item 1) Next week more clarity upon UA military aid? Plus oil & gas.

Today Shell was the biggest climber on our stock market and yes oil prices were up one more time. Lately there were some rumors about the USA asking Ukraine to not attack Russian oil refineries and or other oil installations. Well yes, oil prices or more precise gas prices for the car are indeed a political thing over there.

May be there is some wisdom to halt drone attacks on Russian oil installations if oil goes above say 90$/barrel. And resume attacks when oil prices go down under 90 dollar. After all if a Ukraine hater wins the next US presidential elections, that will bring us from the rain into the droplet.

And this 90 dollar is a number I just suck out of my thumb, there is no advanced analysis behind it or so. Another complicating detail with stopping drone attacks for some time is that it gives the Russians more time to come up with counter measures. For myself speaking I just don't care or even encourage drone attacks regardless of the oil price.  


I didn't save any links but it could be next week the US military aid law goes for a vote. (May be it isn't a law but just a proposal or so and only later it will become law after signing by the POTUS). That could fall all ways, there was even talk that the new speaker Mike Johnson would come under attack from the MAGA's that ousted the previous speaker.

So I can't comment on it because I hardly know the details. Once more lets hope for the best while prepare for the worst...


There was a drone attack on a drone factory in Tatarstan. You might say "so what" because if such a drone downs a few bottles of Vodka can't just anything happen? 
But this is not some Vodka drinking Russian drone attacking other Russian drones. And where have all those biolabs gone? Who knows?

But serious, the distance from the border of Ukraine is over 1300 km so the range of air drones like this keeps on going up. I don't know if it's true but if the target range is below 1000 km it could hold now 300 kg of explosives?

And as the last link a bit of upbeat news, we are leaving the winter in Europe with gas storage at record highs. So that is a tiny miracle in itself, who would have thought that just a short time ago.

But total storage is as far as I know still far beyond one year of gas use. It's open for debate of course how large in total gas storage must be in the future. After all future geopolitical developments are often completely unpredictable, therefore I would still argue for a bit more storage capacity... Just like the USA has a strategic oil reserve, so could be use some minimum gas reserve. Anyway here is the news from oilprices dot com:

Europe Makes It To the Other Side of Winter With Record Levels of Natural Gas. The link is a bit long so I don't copy it, let us now go to the next item. 

  Item 2) New math post on those hyperbolic complex numbers. 

A couple of days ago I published the latest post on those cute hyperbolic numbers. It amazes me that month in month out I don't pick up some other math thing to think about, but I still like it and it's just a hobby so why not? 

The post is about finding the so called complex exponential, this time it is a hyperbole but a lot of people have seen a complex exponential. That is that Euler stuff like e^it = cos t + i sin t.

As you see in the picture below, for the hyperbole here it is a bit more complicated to cover it into it's two coordinate functions. But if you more or less understand each and every crucial detail in it, it becomes a beautiful thing.

And if you don't have a fucking clue what all those math symbols mean, for you it is just something to stare at. Just like I can stare at say a sheet of Bach music and yes I understand that it's music but someone who can actually read that stuff understands it all on a much deeper level. 

In the new post I was happy to use the more or less "official definition" of the exponential series. With 2D numbers like these hyperbolic ones you can actually do this. But if in higher dimensions you have found some number tau and of course you are proud on that, but it's always so complicated you just can't use that formal definition like in e^t = 1 + t + t^2/2! +  t^3/3! + ... because that is just to complicated for a small human brain like I have.

At the start of the new post I express everything as much as possible into the easy to understand sinh and cosh functions. At the end I more try to express it into the eigenvalues of the beloved imaginary unit i that rule the behavior of these hyperbolic complex numbers.

In case you are interested into math like this, as always click on the picture and you will land on the other website:

That was it for this update, as always thanks for your attention.  


(29 March 2024) No intro talk, just two items:

Item 1) Ukrainian stuff; is the USA aid finally moving? Lets hope for it.
Item 2) The adventures of electron chirality, it's unbelievable...

  Item 1) Ukrainian stuff; is the USA aid finally moving? Lets hope for it.

I didn't have the time to flea carefully through the details but it could be that in the USA parliament the aid to Ukraine will become a separate thing no longer tied to all kinds of other political stuff. Well that would be great because at least that will bring some clarity. Furthermore bringing a vote forward does of course not mean that UA aid package will be there, but a lot of American politics are in favor of helping Ukraine.
So as always lets hope for the best while prepare for the worst. At last I want to remark that it is now almost six months that the UA goes without military aid from the USA. In my view they have performed very well given all the shortages there are on the Ukrainian battlefield.
So a compliment to the Ukraine military! 

An opinion piece from The Hill:
Title: Is Ukraine aid finally moving? Link used:


The video channel Military & History had a bit more about the famous Chech shells. It could be I was wrong and this time I really hope I was wrong with stating that likely only the funding was there and no real artillery shells. 

Anyway it is claimed that already before June a significant number of artillery shells could go and be shipped to Ukraine. And may be it is a good thing if not all details are constantly in the news. Just like Germany delivered a few times air defenses without much noise around that. After all the Russians read the news too (although sometimes I wonder if that really makes a difference...)

Below you see an anti-tank work in the making. Click on the picture to land at the video from the Military & History channel: 


Video title: Ukraine War Situation Report.

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) The adventures of electron chirality, it's unbelievable...

I was looking at a video from Sabine with the funny title "Do we have evidence for new physics?". In the video the left and right handiness of electrons came along and that's why I decided to pick this video from Sabine Hossenfelder. It is important to know that Sabine believes all that stuff about electron spin is true; it's a tiny magnet because of reasons or as so often: Not because of reasons, it's just a tiny magnet.

In my little world where I reject the idea that electrons are tiny magnets (because for example they are not neutral under application of magnetic fields as a true bipolar point particle magnet would be), the concept of what physics people refer to as electron chirality is just horrible.  

I view electrons as magnetic monopoles because that makes a lot more sense and you have much less of that stuff that goes like "If you think you understand quantum mechanics, you don't understand quantum mechanics". Let me give you an example with electric charges: 

If a proton files towards a positively charged metal plate, that proton is left handed. If a proton flies away from a positive plate in that case it is right handed.

Hopefully you see why I think electron chirality is just fucking stupid: In the proton example the proton goes towards the metal plate because it had enough initial velocity in that direction. That proton will either slam into the plate or slow down, stop and go back due to the electric charge on that metal plate.

The way the physics people view it, it has to do with the direction of the tiny magnet or the spin of the electron and the direction the electron moves.

So once more there is a magnetic field and once more instead of the tiny electron magnets aligning themselves with that magnetic field, they also anti-align themselves. Anyway that is what the physics people make of it...  

And that is one of the many energy problem I have with the version of low IQ people too stupid to understand stuff like 3D complex numbers. Not that I consider myself being very smart but if I smell rotten logic my simple and small human brain would like a bit more clarity. And not that rotten weird logic from the physics people.
After all where does the electron gets it's energy from to anti-align itself with that applied magnetic field? Even the Sabina's of this world never ever dive into stuff like that... 

It has to be remarked however that Sabine had a very very good observation upon the behavior of the professional physics professors: If the professors have found a tiny patch of math that actually works to describe a particular physics thing, they always hold on that patch of math too long and try it out in all kinds of other physics. 

That is why in my house I hold Sabine in a high esteem despite she believes that crap of electron being tiny magnets. After all if she would say that likely electrons are not tiny magnets, that's instantly the end of her career...   

But Sabine is right: The Gauss law for magnetism is just a piece of math. It is very good math and you can say it is a perfect piece of math because after all it's from Gauss. But if electrons are magnetic monopoles, Gauss or no Gauss, that kind of math simply crashes. 

The video is about seven months old, if you see all the weird stuff about left and right handiness they do with all kinds of particles it is very clear my own view on electrons as magnetic monopoles will meet stiff resistance. But that is just some social stuff, since I am not a member of that weird collection of people knows as physics people it is not much of a hinder to me.

Here is the video, as always click on the picture to see it: 

Video title: Do we have evidence for new physics?
Link used: 

A wiki on electron chirality / helictiy / left-right handiness is here: 

More or less I do not expect to get any validation of the physics community about my views on electron magnetic monopole charge versus their strange idea's upon electron spin.

After all electron carrying magnetic charges that are permanent is not compatible with the idea that if you understand quantum mechanics you don't understand quantum mechanics...

I think it's more like "If you think you understand humans, you don't understand humans". They are just not logical...;) 

Lets leave it with that and as always thanks for your attention.  


(27 March 2024) No intro only two items:

Item 1) Russian terror attacks & cute Black Sea bingo card.
Item 2) Eigenvalues as entries of eigenvectors of an imaginary unit.

Item 1) Russian terror attacks & cute Black Sea bingo card. 

The very first hours after such a terror attack are often important: Officials will often be honest in their first reaction and as such you can learn a lot of what they perceive as the enemy.

For example about twenty years back there were those backpack attacks in trains in Spain. Ten backpacks loaded with explosives stolen from a mine somewhere and left behind in the trains. About 200 or something more dead. The very first thing the Spanish government of that time did was blaming the Basks for it.
The Basks had nothing to do with it but it gave an interesting insight in what they were really thinking.  

In that regard is how you must view the idea's of the Kremlin Putina, the Putina said a few times that the perpetrators were going to Ukraine. And fast on top of that there would be made an opening in the border and after that they would be welcomed as heroes... 

You can't make it up, it is 100% from crazyland but for a few years already I think Putin is mentally ill and has a very limited grasp on understanding what is real and what are his fatasies.

Another interesting detail is that the Americans have warned a few days before the attacks that there could be a serious coming. The Putina stupid and arrogant as he is dismissed the whole thing once more pointing to that he has a limited understanding of what is real and what is made up.

I selected a video from Konstantin from the channel Inside Russia because he has been in that Crocus building a few times. He even claimed there was a police station inside that very building. The video is about 21 min long and as always click on the picture to land at the video:

Video title: Terror In Moscow: KGB's Biggest Fail
Link used:

It took a relatively long time for police to react on the terror attack, a few people explained this via remarking that such stuff like police is almost totally geared to protecting the Russian government. As such protecting the public takes a back seat or isn't done at all. I agree with that observation, as Konstantin from the video remarks: If you hold a blank piece of paper above your head (the way of protesting over there in Russia) you are arrested in 30 seconds.
Well may be it's a bit longer as 30 seconds, but Russian police loves it to crack down hard on unarmed protestors while if they are dealing wit more dangerous folks the cowards had better things to do. 

Now have I any comments of that guy with his ear cut off or the one who's genitals got electrocuted? I think that part of the story is what Putin always refers to as "Traditional family values". What else should it be? Well all jokes sick or not aside, this too is the initial reaction that is good to observe. It shows how it goes over there when they get a bit emotional... 


At Suchominus I found another bingo card, this one is about the Black Sea fleet. There were reports of two more ships hit but as far as I know now none of them are promoted to submarines. It could be one of the ships was missed by a feet or more but again I do not know more details now. It is just I wanted a new bingo card because they are funny: 


The bingo card once more demonstrates how stupid the Kremlin Putina is because most of the losses of the Russian navy were caused after the Kremlin did withdraw from the grain deal.

I got pissed and angry about that  and a lot more people did and as such the Russian Black Sea fleet gets smaller and smaller. Once more, this Putin guy is just too stupid to understand the dynamics of war.   

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Eigenvalues as entries of eigenvectors of an imaginary unit.

Four days ago I posted a new math post on the other website. Click on the picture below if you are interested. Actually the post is about finding another number tau, this time in a 2D space of hyperbolic complex numbers. These numbers tau are always the logarithm of a suitable imaginary unit (suitable means they must have a determinant of 1) and if you have found such a number tau you can make a complex exponential with that.  

This time I used the method of diagonalization of the 2x2 matrices involved and in this post I wanted to highlight that often (or better always) the eigenvalues often appear in the entries of the eigenvectors.
Using that insight can save you a ton of work, in this case you can use the so called characteristic equation to your advantage. Below you see the lambda^2 equation for this problem and you can use that to break down the square into a linear combination.

So it's all not deep math but as simple as possible because we have 2x2 size matrices. I once solved this kind of problem for a 7x7 matrix and before I fully developed this matrix diagonalization way I solved it for a 5x5 matrix. For myself the 5x5 matrix was one of the hardest math problems I ever solved because I did not have my diagonalization stuff at the time and had to find the number tau on pure brain power.  

As always click on the picture to land at the new post that is now about 4 days old. You are not allowed to apply Russian traditional family values on my new born math baby.

Now last week I wrote that official math professors don't study stuff like elliptic or hyperbolic 2D number systems. But was I correct? I found an old wiki back that I must have read many years ago and in there you find some rudimentary stuff on such number systems.

The reason I want to show you this rather boring wiki is that it is for all to see that the professional math professors only do the square of imaginary units...  

Yes, for say 150 years they only do that. May be that is one of the reasons my 3D complex numbers just don't ring any doorbell over there. They can only do square, for the rest it's all brain dead but still receiving a fat money paycheck known as the salary.
Here's the wiki, don't waste your time on it because it's only square deep:

(22 March 2024) Two items for today: 

Item 1) Kajsa Ollongren visiting UA & Anders Puck on sea drones.
Item 2) Math: What happens if elites give prizes to other elites?

  Item 1) Kajsa Ollongren visiting UA & Anders Puck on sea drones.

Our minister of defense Kajsa Ollongren was on a two day visit to Ukraine. I could not find it back but at some point in time the Ukrainians asked if military aid could suddenly stop or words like that. 

Of course I cannot give any guarantees but I will try and explain a bit how politics works over here. First look at my photo from the previous update upon our latest elections, as you see we always have many political parties. As such we always have coalition governments with mostly over two political parties. As far as I know the only political party that is against military aid to Ukraine is the PVV lead by that walking piece of dogshit named Geert Wilders. You know the guy that likes to ban the Koran and stuff like that, he's a total idiot.

In my country it is very common that a new government does not change policies set in place by previous governments. So it is not like binary political systems like the UK or the USA. For example when Donald Trump became president one of the first things they did was deleting all stuff related to man made climate change from the web servers of the White House. Stuff like that is never done over here. 

Furthermore because we always have coalitions inside the cabinet they will vote every now and then over new policies. My estimate is that stopping military aid will be voted away. It is also very likely that this walking piece of dogshit will not become our new pm furthermore lowering the likelihood of less military aid.

There could be a future problem with the F-16's if the Donald gets elected again because the F-16's were made in the USA. That is a big wild card so all we can do is hope for the best while preparing for the worst..

Below you see our defense minister on her visit to UA, click on the picture for a short Reuters report on the stuff: 

Title: Dutch providing Ukraine with F-16 ammunition, drones, minister says. Link used:

As far as I know now Denmark will start delivering F-16's this summer and we will follow in the autumn.

Lets go to the video of today, Anders Puck had an interesting analysis of why sea drones are so hard to take out. The sobering news is that it's not massive Vodka consumption but an interesting mix of radar limitations, waves and drone visibility.  

I found it very interesting, here is the title & link:
Why are maritime drones so hard to beat?  


 Item 2) Math: What happens if elites give prizes to other elites?

There was a new Abel prize (for math) out, the Abel prize is a recent thing and you can compare it to the Nobel prizes for other sciences. 

It is no secret that rich organizations like that are very unhelpful when it comes to understanding it is very hard for a point particle like an electron to be a magnetic dipole.

For example the Nobel prize committee just as easily hands out their prizes of nutjob physics professors who are basically too stupid to understand the problems there are with electrons being tiny magnets.

For about nine years I am writing on that detail from physics and just nothing happens. What can explain stuff like that?

You must not see universities as places where people just relentlessly try to improve on scientific knowledge. You must much more compare it to say a medieval palace household with all it's palace intrigues. Females cheating on their husbands if that can improve their social standing, husbands fucking lower ranked maids and so on and so on.
Compare it to say Richard Feynman fucking so many of this female students, it has nothing to do with science just exploiting the position you have.    

Universities are more or less elite places that are run by elites for elites. Ok ok every now and then they do some science, I will not deny that. But there's always tons and tons of emotional stuff going on that also hinders simple scientific progress.

Just an example: Because my social rank is rather low, simply because of that I am getting ignored to the bone. That goes for 3D complex numbers where this ignorance goes on for about 33 years and lately the idea that electrons being magnetic monopoles is just not picked up.

To the excuse of university employees I can say that also for them it will be next to impossible to do experiments about electron monopole magnetism and on top of that it will be very hard to get any kind of publication into that direction. Furthermore they live in a 'publish or perish' kind of culture so it does not add value to their career if they try to get rid of that nonsense known as electron spin.

Qubits based on electron spin that just don't work after 30 years? The university people will always have another lame excuse of why it does not work.

Another complicating factor is that science is humans working together, so you must conform to the idea's that define or make up a particular science. If you don't do that you run into trouble and it's just bad for your career. If you challenge the idea that monopoles do not exist and state that almost all matter is composed of magnetic monopoles, your career will be dead.

But lets go to the Abel prize, it was weird to see Matt Parker dressed up like he was some elite guy just doing his elite thingelings. The video of the announcement is about 30 minutes long. As always click on the picture to land at the video:

Video title: The Abel Prize announcement. March 20, 2024
Link used:

At about 18 minutes into the video Matt tells us that higher dimensions are 'very mysterious'. As an example he does the sphere packing thing and yes on the surface it looks mysterious: How can such a giant sphere fit into a unit cube of higher dimensions? 

But if you analyze it, all mystery melts away soon. For example take all the corner points of a 10 thousand dimensional unit cube. You can find corner points that have a distance of 1 to each other. There are corner points with a distance of square root 2 and so on and so on until you find the maximum distance in such a cube to be the square root of 10 thousand...

The Abel prize winner Michel Talagrand is also very good at understanding electron spin. They must be tiny magnets and as such he likely has done some math into that direction of idea's. And guess what? He got another fat financial prize while in his own words he already had a 1.2 million other math prize! 

What more do you want? Universities are run by elites for elites, but my dear and overpaid Michel does that make electrons really tiny magnets?

And to answer the question posed in the title of this item: What happens if elites give prizes to other elites? Rather simple: Nothing.  

Let's leave it with that & as always thanks for your attention. 


(20 March 2024) Normally when I avoid all things Google, after an evening of web surfing I have at most one hundred trackers. But on days that I update this website I often use Youtube and Google News, on those days it's more like 400 to 500 trackers. And not to mention all those cookies you get for free, often it is just unclear what use there is in those cookies & trackers. So over the years the company that once had the motto "Do no evil" has become a very skilled parasite. It's a pity but for the time being I still avoid that Google stuff...
Lets go to the two items of today:

 Item 1) Ramstein meeting, a bingo card and a few remarks.
 Item 2) Good math video found on the 3D circular numbers.

 Item 1) Ramstein meeting, a bingo card and a few remarks.

Lets not waste time on those Russian "elections". There was a new Ramstein meeting but I did not any time to flea through the details. But I observed the US SECDEF making a few remarks and I want to say I agree with them. If Putin is not stopped in Ukraine, he will go after other countries. That's the mental illness of the guy. For example lately we had the Tucker Carlson interview and the Putina told us that he was not interested in say a country like Poland...
Well I think if he had a proper strong army, he would already be in Portugal by now.  

On a video channel named Ukraine Matters I came across a funny bingo card, I have to say those drone attacks were impressive and now the news is that Russia will bring air defense to refineries...  

I don't link to the video of Ukraine Matters because the guy thinks that there are actually hundreds of thousands of artillery ammo shells found. No that reporting is very misleading, it's just the funding for it. Now of course this is all rather important, as far as I know Russia fires about 10 thousand shells a day and Ukraine because of the shortage only 2 thousand... 

In case you want to read it, here is a text from Zelenskyy and in it is says actually funding for the artillery shells:

Lets close this item with a photo I made from our last elections, as you see we do not have much of a two party system over here like in the USA or the UK. That's why it always takes so long to form a new government and as such our so called caretaker government always still have a lot of work to do even after elections... 

Ok, lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Good math video found on the 3D circular numbers.

By sheer coincidence I came across that video on 3D circular numbers, the guy from the channel names them tripex numbers. In about 33 years of time I know that kind of math, I have never seen such a good video on it. 

He comes amazingly far, a good matrix representation, factorizing the determinant. The video guy has good technical math skills, he does not bounce back from more complicated calculations. To be honest this is one of the more skilled people I have seen over the last 33 years.

But as always, taking the conjugate goes horribly wrong. He sees for himself that taking a conjugate as simple are replacing some + signs by a - sign goes wrong. And he does not stop there, he jumps to the conclusion it has to be related to the determinant. I have seen that kind of reasoning before but the determinant is just not good as some kind of norm.

I think he is a math hobbyist just like I am, he is not as stupid as the average math professor when it comes to complex numbers but he names the stuff an N-function. Dear video guy, the N stands for norm. 

The video is about 40 minutes long and for my brain the calculations don't go to fast but if you are new to that kind of stuff it might go a bit fast all in all. As always click on the picture to land at the video from a company that once had a motto "Do no evil": 

Video title: Let's Invent the Triplex Numbers (Channel: Casual Graphs)
Link used:

By sheer coincidence just two posts ago on the other website I explained a bit more on how to find the conjugate on other spaces as just the complex plane. In case you want to read that nerdy stuff, here is a link:

Comparison of the conjugate on five different spaces.  

In other developments I finished writing a new post on 2D hyperbolic complex numbers. The math professors only have a hyperbolic plane and we keep it better that way. Those folks are beyond repair when it comes to complex numbers and it all know you shouldn't make fun of mentally handicapped people...

I am now halfway or so into turning it into pictures, the post is about finding the number tau for those hyperbolic numbers. And a number tau is always the logarithm of a suitable imaginary unit. This time I use the method of matrix diagonalization so it is a bit different compared to when I used those integrals for an elliptic 2D multiplication.

But if you have such a number tau, you must also have some parametrization of the hyperbole involved. That's for the math post after the present one that still is in preparation. I already showed you all that sine hyperbolic stuff in the previous update, but in the picture below I use a different eigenvalue of the imaginary unit i.   

Eigenvalues of imaginary units? Math professors will never ever do stuff like that. No they waste their time into large research groups that are only formed because in that way all participants get more publications on their name. It's a consequence of the 'publish or perish' culture. 

What use is there into writing as much publications as possible if that only dilutes the value of the content? Anyway here is the cute hyperbole stuff:

Yeah yeah, a complex exponential that is a hyperbole.

Lets leave it with that and as always thanks for your attention.  


(15 March 2024) Well well well, may be there is a bit of good news from the front of politics; very likely in my own country that nutjob named Geert Wilders will not become a pm. Likely that means the military aid to Ukraine is unhindered by weird political stuff in the next few years. But politics are politics so most of the time all you can do is hope for the best while preparing for the worst... Two items for today: 

Item 1) More attacks on Russian oil facilities.
Item 2) More on those hyperbolic complex numbers ruled by i^2 = -1 + 3i.

 Item 1) More attacks on Russian oil facilities.

It seems that Russia had a bunch of helicopters in the air above the occupied territories while Ukraine launched a lot of drones. So the Russians hardly could use their air defenses because otherwise their own helicopters could get hit. 

Below I have a video from France 24 English where it is claimed that according to Bloomberg in the last attacks from this week we already have about 12% or Russian refinery capacity offline... 

The Russians claimed to have shot down 65 of the impending drones, hard to say how accurate that number is because the Russians live in a society where people love good news over bad news. Just like when they tell each other that 44 HIMARS systems are destroyed, the more good news there is the better it is over there.

I have no idea exactly what the most easy way is to attack Russian oil refineries. The best stuff is of  course the things they can't repair or replace without outside knowledge and oil technology. But a drone in say a distillation column is likely a pain in the ass for the local oil refiner. 

And the Kremlin they can't complain because those weirdo's started the whole stuff of attacking energy infrastructure. Everybody complained but the arrogant shitholes kept on attacking Ukrainian energy infrastructure. The combination of a relative dumb Putina combined with much to much arrogance is not something that will turn the war into Russia's favor fast. 

I am not sure but it could be a distillation column burning in the picture below. A funny detail is that Russian civilians themselves make video's of such attacks and place them online... As far as I know there are about one hundred refineries in Russia, of course other smaller refineries can compensate a bit for the recently lost production capacity. So may be the Bloomberg estimate is a little bit too high but it has to be remarked that Bloomberg is a reliable news outlet.
Click on the picture for the France 24 video: 

Video title: Russia reports Ukrainian drone strikes on targets deep inside its territory and a border incursion.
Link used:

Also interesting is that those border crossings into Russia keep on going. At first I expected a few hit and run attacks, or raids as known in military jargon, but I've also seen footage of Russians waving the white flag. And after that it's Russians who take Russians as prisoners of war because it's more or less forbidden that Ukrainians take part in such attacks. After all that is more or less the condition for military aid and yes it can be frustrating but I too adhere to that.

If countries giving military aid to Ukraine want that border condition, it is what it is. Anyway it's time to go to the next item so once more I wish the Ukrainians luck with staging more and more complicated attacks.   

Item 2) More on those hyperbolic complex numbers ruled by i^2 = -1 + 3i.

I upgraded the picture from Tuesday a little bit so even people with limited knowledge of complex numbers can understand a bit better what I try to do.

What I want to do is finding a way with that thing named f(t) to go through integer points in the plane when the variable t is also an integer. This f(t) is known under the name parametrization and that means it covers a thing, in this case one blade of a hyperbole. 

The interesting detail is that through every integer point in the plane there goes one of those hyperboles. For example in the picture below I did choose the point (5, 5) that represents the complex number z = 5 + 5i.

All you have to do is calculate what x^2 + 3xy + y^2 is, here with x and y both being 5 it is 125 in total. So that's what you feed the DESMOS graphing package and voila you have a perfect pair of two hyperbole blades.  

If you multiply any integer point on such a hyperbola with the imaginary unit i, you always get the next integer point on that same hyperbola. But instead of taking just one step at a time (using the number i) you can also multiply any integer point with that f(t) thing.

And if you do that, for example f(3) will bring you 3 steps further on the hyperbole. Or f(-2) brings you two steps back. It more or less 'rotates' over the hyperboles where in the ordinary complex plane all stuff done with multiplication by i gives rise to rotation along a circular path.

I will not deny that this f(t) thing looks a bit complicated but in math just like in war it is what it is. Only in math there are much less attacks on Russian oil facilities... 

Hopefully you are not one hundred % confused by the next picture that by the way takes a lot of time to make. Every piece of text or symbols are a layer in my graphics program, but it is nice work to do.  

It has to be remarked that just like in the case with ellipses, there could be  integer points in the plane not covered by my f(t) thing. For example if you look at the ellipse x^2 + xy + y^2 = 91, there are 24 integer point solutions but any  f(t) thing goes round over 6 integer points so I have to use four of my  f(t) things to get all integer points on that ellipse...

Life sucks, I know I know. May be it is time to split and thanks for not being brain dead right now so I can say thanks for your attention.


(13 March 2024) No intro talk only two items: 

Item 1) A boatload of news related to Ukraine.
Item 2) A cute hyperbole that is in fact a complex exponential.

  Item 1) A boatload of news related to Ukraine.

Just a grab out of all that news surrounding or related to the war in Ukraine:

1) Flag raising ceremony at HQ of NATO.
2) Czechnia 800.000 shells for Ukraine?
3) Drone attacks on oil facilities in Russia.
4) At three places UA tanks crossed the border with Russia.
5) And so on and so on...  

Of course I am not a NATO employee but once more a welcome for Sweden. It's now all official as far as I know, may be burning a few less Korans or may be non at all is better. (But I live in a country where a guy that tries to become the pm would like to ban the Koran, the guy Geert Wilders is a deep nutjob so we'll see how Dutch politics will evolve over time...) As you see the flag raising ceremony was a pretty sober one with just a few attendees, but it's an important symbol. DW reporting:


Last week it emerged that Czechnia in some mysterious way had found 800.000 shells and it was rumored it costs about 1.5 billion. At the time I did not want to comment on it because 1.5 billion € for 800.000 is less than 2000 € per artillery shell.
Present prices are much higher due to the shortage, I don't know exact or average numbers but it's easily 2 or 3 times as expensive. But all kinds of countries are standing behind the proposal of Czechnia so who knows?
From four days back this news, from 

Czech Republic backtracks on finding cash to buy 800,000 shells for Ukraine.

But 300.000 shells would be possible, yet today we have this news from Pravda: 

Czechia finds 200,000 more artillery shells for Ukraine

Likely it's only the funding, these are as far as I now understand it not already made artillery shells. But who knows if there are stockpiles here and there that likely never will be used and as such could also go to Ukraine...


A good drone spanking was also delivered today with all those attacks on Russian oil facilities. Russia has now cut down oil production by about one million barrels a day and that is about double they would do related to OPEC trying to keep oil prices high. So the OPEC cuts and cuts related to Ukrainian drone attacks give not a sharp picture but likely the attacks on oil facilities do their work.
Lets not forget Russia itself started attacking UA energy infrastructure so they can not complain. (Of course they will complain but anyway.)

Please remark now all foreign oil companies have left Russia it is much harder for Russia to repair the stuff, so it makes sense to stage much much more of these attacks...  

On three places Ukrainian tanks crossed the border into Russia. The tanks are not manned by Ukrainians but those Russians that want to get rid of that piece of shit now sitting in the Kremlin.

The Putin wants to get reelected and likely the Russians will vote as they are told. But for a guy that more or less planned this war for a period of 10 years, what was supposed to be a 3 day operation in now into it's third year. I would not vote for such a dumb form of asshole life.  


And so on and so on, for example the seizure of the 285 billion $ of Russian reserves hanging in bank accounts around the world is a bit closer. Right now those accounts are only frozen but every person understands that 285 billion $ is a significant amount. Yet from the legal point of view it is all rather complicated but I am in favor of it.
Yeah yeah Kremlin crybabies, why don't you make a bit more noise on this detail so I can once more completely neglect what you have to say.  

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) A cute hyperbole that is in fact a complex exponential.

I was just trying to write a new math post on finding a so called number tau for a complex plane that is not ruled by i^2 = -1 as most people know but by  i^2 = -1 + 3 i.

Now after you have found such a beautiful number tau that is always the logarithm of one of the imaginary units, you are more or less supposed to give a good parametrization of the thing because otherwise what is the fucking use of your new found number tau?

So while working on my number tau stuff I became afraid that may be this time I would not be able to find such a parametrization. In case you do not have a clue what I am talking about, think of that good old Euler thing that says: e^ it = cos(t) +  isin(t), that is one of those parametrizations.

But I have to cover a hyperbole and I had never done that before. And instead of neatly writing all the stuff out I decided to directly pen down the answer because after all it's just a bunch of cosine and sine hyperbolic functions or not?

So a day later I put my brilliant parametrization into the DEMOS graphic machinery and guess what? It's not correct, yes it covers the hyperbola but it has some overshoot. That was horrible because now I did not have that relationship between integers like -1, 0, 1, 2 and the integers from this 2D complex plane.

Well it was easy to repair but it will be more difficult where I made my giant mistake or mistakes. It must be a minor thing because the parametrization eats the hyperbola like it is some form of math sex. 

If you are still not crazy, look below. I was thinking that this a was precisely one, but it's not. It's that ln thing that is in fact the logarithm of one of the eigenvalues of my precious number  i

So I have to work out all this messy stuff before I can post the new number tau and later post the parametrization.

This all more or less shows that writing math is also often a messy process while if I post the end results I always do like it was all clean and shiny from day one...

If I look at the clock, I think it is time to split and let me try to upload this to the internet. Thanks for your attention.  


(08 March 2024) That was some weird experience: I copied some files on a USD data stick and bam! The whole thing does not work anymore. About 59 GB of data gone, but it's no problem because I have everything double except for the last 40 files or so. I more or less considered data sticks to be a safe storage of data, for about as long as they are there I have never ever had only one problem and now all of a sudden it dies like an old rotating hard disk... So I have to rework my archive routine... 

Item 1) The Sergey Kotov promoted to submarine.
Item 2) Why not two stacks of neodymium magnets?

  Item 1) The Sergey Kotov promoted to submarine.

The channel Reporting From Ukraine had a good video out on the sinking of the Sergey Kotov. If it all has unfolded like is told in the video, it is indeed a fairly complex attack. The big problem is that weirdly enough Russians seem to think about doing stuff that makes their ships harder to sink! 

Now I haven't tried it but if you try typing in an internet search engine the phrase "Russians thinking" and you likely get the suggestion "Russians thinking where is my bottle of Vodka?". The Russians are much much smarter as I ever anticipated, for example they keep their war ships in ports that are outside of the range of the Storm Shadow boom stuff. 

That is totally ridiculous! The UK & France don't deliver that flying boom stuff for nothing, the Russians are supposed to hold on to their part of the deal: Letting Ukrainians sink Russian ships with Storm Shadow boom stuff.

But serious, I found the video interesting so click on the picture if you want to see it for yourself:  

Link used:


Of course a lot more did happen, for example the expansion of NATO is now formalized with Sweden as it's latest member. And the Czech Petr Pavel came out also stating a willingness for having boots on the ground in Ukraine...  

May be that's a good idea, may be it's a bad idea because can it destabilize the scale of the war? On the one hand the Russians now only have one front, the one in Ukraine. What would happen if they have to fight on different fronts if in the meantime their entire railroad infrastructure gets bombarded away? It's all hard to say but I agree with those politicians that say we must not fear Russia for no reason at all.

Lets go to the next item.  

 Item 2) Why not two stacks of neodymium magnets?

Two days ago I showed you my latest post on the other websites where I briefly went into experiments where the applied magnetic field is into the direction of the electron beam.

Now in that post on the other website I mentioned four different kind of experiments you can do with narrow and wide magnetic fields and narrow and wide electron beams. For example my 12€ black and white old television is a wide electron beam.

In all experiments of course the goal is to separate all electron beam stuff into two different ones using magnetism.  

But yesterday I thought of another cute way of splitting the electron beam in two beams: Simply use two stacks of neodymium magnets.  

I have no idea about the costs, I bought my own first stack of magnets a long time ago and at the time it was about 50€. In the meantime we had a lot of inflation so may be two stacks are now around 130€. 

Furthermore you must have some way of making an electron beam, that can be a beautiful expensive glass tube as above or a worn out old oscilloscope that has a tube with an electron beam in it.  

All in all it's just a few hundred Euro's and you can stay far far away from the university people that believe in electrons are tiny magnets and as such if the electron beam splits it has to be that these electrons anti-align themselves. And more of that academic crap when it comes to magnetism, these people are mostly shallow thinkers only interested in the number of publications they have made and their ranking order among their peers. 

At the universities they play a lot of ego games and sometimes they do a bit of science but that is a seldom thing. After all if you accept that electrons have to "ANTI ALIGN" because they are tiny magnets, you are just fucking stupid.

Every thing points to electrons having a monopole magnetic charge, just like the electric charge they carry.   

But the university people will never stop being shallow thinkers loaded with too much emotion to be good scientists. For example if a physics professor sees a new unexplained phenomenon, this person first reaction will always be "OMG, what will the colleagues think of it?".

And with an attitude like that you might become a good scientist but at the same time your results will never ever stand the test of time.

Electrons are not tiny magnets, it has nothing to do with the size of your research budget. Even if institutions like CERN would have an infinite budget, electrons will never be the tiny magnets as they think over there.

End of the rant for this week, thanks for your attention and see you next week or so.   


(06 March 2024) Just two items.  

Item 1) Russian aviation losses this high in just a few weeks?
Item 2) A relative cheap SG experiment + new magnetic post.

 Item 1) Russian aviation losses this high in just a few weeks?

The numbers mentioned are huge, about one air plane a day or so. But if it's all more or less correct that is good news for Ukraine. I have no idea how all of a sudden this acceleration in downed Russian aviation assets is done. It could be a lot of things, may be new weaponry or more accurate knowledge of where the Russian planes are. It could be this, it could be that.

I selected two media resources with slightly contrasting titles:  

Russia Aviation Activity Drops after $1BN of Craft Lost in 2024—ISW
Link used: activity-eastern-ukraine-avdiivka-1875526 

And you can also look at it this way: 

Shift in Russian Tactics Intensifies Air War in Ukraine 
Link used:

A quote from the New York Times: 

Ukrainian officials and military analysts said Russian aviation had played an important role in the capture of Avdiivka, one that required Russian jets “to fly closer” to the front line to maximize the effect of the glide bombs. And that exposed them to the risk of being shot down by Ukraine’s air defenses. 

So there are a lot of explanations possible, anyway if all more or less correct it is a good development. It has to be remarked however it is unknown how long there will be no glider bombs any more...


A lot more did happen, for example after Marcon's remarks last week all in all four countries have indicated to be willing in sending boots on the ground in Ukraine. My country is one of those four countries but I don't want to comment on that now because it is a bit late already. So lets save that for a another day.

For no reason at all you can enjoy the next nice picture, it is from that latest SORA video release. The developments in AI still go fast and furious and it's anybody's guess where this all will lead to.  

I forgot to copy the video link but here is that freaky alien that very likely is a staunch supporter of Ukraine: 

Lets go to the next item. 

  Item 2) A relative cheap SG experiment + new magnetic post.

Over the years I have been looking at a whole lot of video's where guys use magnetic fields to manipulate electron beams. And all in all that never lead anywhere because they all want to demonstrate the Lorentz force and as such hold the magnetic field perpendicular against the electron beam.

So a few days back I come across that video from a physics teacher that wanted to see what happens if you apply the magnetic field parallel to the electron beam.  

That was interesting because it looked a bit like the way I did that myself years and years ago with that 12€ second hand black and white television and a 50€ stack of neodymium magnets.  

Since I succeeded in getting two separate regions, see photo below, I more or less once more jumped to the conclusion that you can't kill the idea that electrons are magnetic monopoles. Click on the picture for the video:  

Video title: Helical Electron Beams
Link used:

The problem I have with all these video's is that these people never try to split the electron beam in two different paths. There are so many ways to do your own SG experiment on the cheap.

You have to take my word for it, but the black ring on the photo below is going round the whole thing. I mean we have two separated regions where electrons land on the screen.  

Title of the last post: Nice experiment: Magnetic field in the direction of an electron beam.

Well thanks for your attention and stuff like that.  


(01 March 2024) Today our caretaker government announced the making of three new frigates to replace old stuff. That's a big order and luckily they can be made here in our own country. It will take some time before they are finished, about eight years or so. Items for today:

Item 1) Olga says she is cloned in China, it's a crazy story.
Item 2) And another idiot on Majorama fermion quantum computing.

  Item 1) Olga says she is cloned in China, it's a crazy story.

Is the US government going into a shutdown? I didn't know it was one of those times again, it's always a bit strange to observe that from abroad... 

Anyway today I have a bit more light subject in the sense it doesn't have to do with all that death and destruction from the last two years. I just looked at Olga her video and only later realized she is from Ukraine.  

It seems that in China they made a video clone from her and that is used in a lot of Chinese channels where they often make weird propaganda for Russian/Chinese relations. Click on the picture for the video:

Video title: Somebody Cloned Me in China...
Link used:

It's a totally weird video, I think I would not like it either if that happened to me but there is not much video out there with me in it anyway. But for a Ukrainian woman to get used in those weird video's promoting Russia and China being the best friends for ever and always is weird. 

Who is pumping out video's like that? Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) And another idiot on Majorama fermion quantum computing.

I selected this video because a few weeks ago I observed a Microsoft executive explaining something about quantum mechanics. (Over at Micrsoft they try to make quantum computers based on topological materials and weird stuff like those Majorana fermions.) It went something like this: 

If you see the light from a star from say one billion light years away, why do you see that and is the photon not one billion light years on the other side of the star? Well that is because it reacted in your eye so it can't be at the other side of the star. 

That struck me as an odd view on the quantum stuff; This Microsoft executive thought likely that light could be in a superposition of opposite directions. I doubt that this is true, if you see light from a star so far away it is more likely that it has traveled uninterrupted for a billion years of time. You can even experimentally verify that: 

Just place an object between yourself and that star. You will notice no light will enter your eyes strongly suggesting that light takes a path through space and is not some goofy woofy quantum thingeling.

In the video you see likely the source of those weird words as spoken by the Microsoft executive. His name is Charles Marcus and could be the source of such weird interpretations of quantum mechanics.

Anyway Charles thinks that all stuff in their so called standard model is verified by experiment. That's total bullshit of course, there still is nothing that proves by experiment that electrons are tiny magnets. Now Charles is a sympathetic guy and a person in his position must be of course enthusiastic upon the possibilities of quantum computing, but Charles is also a total idiot.  

It's obvious that Charles does not realize all things wrong with viewing the electrons as tiny magnets, that is he thinks the Gauss law for magnetism is just true always on all scales. Once more: there is no fucking experimental proof for that. We only observe overpaid people talking out of their necks.

To my surprise in this year 2024 Microsoft is still trying to make quantum computers based on those Majorama fermions. My dear reader in about 90 years of time there is never ever a particle found that is it's own anti-particle. The only stuff there was is withdrawn by the TU Delft. By the way, at TU Delft at the quantum department they too are day in day out to fucking stupid to understand it is rather unlikely that electrons are tiny magnets... But that aside.

Anyway the video is long, about one hour, it is entertaining and Charles is a sympathetic guy. But my expectation is the Mircosoft approach to quantum computing will never work. 

Video title: "Tying Knots in Quantum Computing," Charles Marcus, Center for Quantum Devices, Niels Bohr Institute.
Link used:

But as the years pass one by one I more and more doubt most forms of trying to make quantum computers will fail. As soon as there is an energy difference between what they write as the 0 and 1 state, it likely does not work.

To put it simple: You cannot make super positions of states with different energy levels.

But all those years I am looking at this stuff, I only observe people like Charles or his pal Leo Kouwenhove who many years ago was also very good at talking quantum bullshit.

I think my rant is long enough by now and I want to thank you for your attention and don't believe crap like "Everything in the standard model is tested by experiment".  


(28 Feb 2024) No intro talk about anything, just two items: 

Item 1) Sweden is nr 32, Germany on Taurus & cute Macron words.
Item 2) New math post on taking conjugates on five different spaces.

 Item 1) Sweden is nr 32, Germany on Taurus & cute Macron words.

The Hungarian parliament voted in favor of letting Sweden into NATO and as such the last hurdle was finally taken for Sweden. What I didn't have that sharp on my mind was how long Sweden was actually neutral or on their own, about 200 years. So this is indeed a tectonic shift away from the past. A short Reuters report on the stuff: 

Sweden's NATO accession ends era of go-it-alone security
Link used:

Suchominus had an interesting video on how much air planes were downed in just a couple of days. I have to admit it slipped a bit beside my attention likely because it were so many SU-34's. So if you hear that word SU-34 you think it's just one plane repeated like so often news is repeated. Suchominus wondered what ace Ukraine did have up it's sleeve and me to I don't know. Click on the picture for the video of Suchominus: 

Video title: Ukraine Reports Another Su-34 Shot Down -- 10 Aircraft in 12 Days, 7th Su-34.
Link used:

And of course there was another Russian AWACS down, the second in also a short period of time. Of course if the economical sanctions work properly it is very hard for Russia to replace those air planes for the foreseeable future. 


From Germany came the explanation about the no Taurus for Ukraine. It's more or less they are afraid that they could be misused. Well there is no denying that, the present political situation looks stable but with politics you never know what the future brings. This line of reasoning is completely accepted by me, if countries give military aid it must be the stuff of their own choosing. 
Of course countries are free to fill in their help the way they want.  

From France came a very different sound, Macron suggested things like "Why not NATO boots on UA ground?" That causes a tiny stir among EU and NATO allies. What do I think of it?  

Well I think that no NATO member has been attacked and as such there is no direct involvement needed as some form of NATO response. Again the principle is that countries are sovereign and as such may be France could deploy her military in Ukraine. On the one hand I have no problem with that while on the other hand we must not steer the situation into a completely uncontrollable thing.  

At least one thing is clear: Ukraine needs more military hardware...
Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) New math post on taking conjugates on five different spaces.

A lot of people know what the conjugate of a complex number is: You flip that complex number in the real axis or to put it in math writing:
z = x + iy turns into z = x - iy.

In the last years a few time I observed people on the divers math websites out there who had indeed found 3D complex numbers. They know how to write them down, sometimes even come up with a matrix representation and on top of that the determinant of such matrices.
But taking the conjugate always goes totally wrong, they can't let loose the idea you must flip it in the real axis and as such they get gibberish results and give up thinking 3D complex numbers are not worth investigating further.

I have never ever seen anyone doing it right and that was one of my motivations to write this new post. Another reason was of course that a lot of people know what a conjugate is and as such I can avoid to much on the introduction to that idea.  

The choice for five different spaces was may be a bit over the top, may be I can mentally jump from one such space to the next but I doubt if there are many people who can do the same. And if they can they do not need this post in their life...  

But why should a reader precisely understand every detail I mention? If they learned something new about one of those details, may be that is enough. It's just like asking how much food should be in one meal? Well that depends a lot on who is consuming that meal. 

Anyway I decided to also include one of those more exotic number spaces like in this case the hyperbolic multiplication in the plane. Actually there is not a 'the' hyperbolic multiplication, I took the one that say if you square the imaginary unit you get minus one plus three times the imaginary unit. Or in mathy words: i^2 = -1 + 3i

And the conjugate is such an i is given by 3 - i, at first sight this looks crazy but it has it's own logic. And that logic is unavoidable because it does not lead to gibberish results.

In the picture below I show you also one of the works of Esher on the hyperbolic plane. As far as I know this hyperbolic geometry has nothing to do with my hyperbolic complex numbers beside that I use actual hyperboles...

If you want to know a bit more about this conjugate stuff click on the picture to land at the other website.  

To end this update with a few words in my native Dutch language:

Wel daar kunnen die halve gare wiskunde professors een puntje aan zuigen, hee zootje halve garen: zijn die drie dimensionale complexe getallen na 33 jaar nog steeds te moeilijk? Nou ja, laat dan maar zitten...

Let me leave it with that and see you in a future update.


(23 Feb 2024) No intro only two items: 

Item 1) EU declares the 13-th package of economical sanctions.
Item 2) Tiny bit of math and a small electron rant.

 Item 1) EU declares the 13-th package of economical sanctions.

On the eve of the third year of war in Ukraine there is a 13-th round or packet of economical sanctions. You constantly hear there are people that think the economical sanctions don't work because for example the Russian economy will grow an estimated 2+% this year.

Well yes that's all true but the present 2% or 2+% is not like we have it over here, it's mostly military production that goes to Ukraine to get shot to pieces. It's not like investment in infrastructure or education that will have decade long economical benefits.  

It's estimated their so called wealth fund will run out in about two years at the present speed, of course they can hold on a long time to just printing money but all the time the sanctions will build up. 

It's an economy and it doesn't drop dead if you point a finger at it and say "Now drop dead please". No it takes a lot of work to maintain the efficiency of such sanctions, take for example all those rumors on the shadow fleet of tankers. Of course Russia will try to evade the sanctions if possible, that alone keeps maintaining existing sanctions always a thing. 

Deutsche Welle had a small oversight, as always click on the picture to land at the video:

 Item 2) Tiny bit of math and a small electron rant.

I already showed you the latest math post in the update from two days back but today I viewed that new AI video from Google it was I believe and it was indeed interesting. I liked the sharks in the city picture while of course people that make art for a living often don't like it.
May be in some future math will also be on the chopping block as a thing that is better done by machines. They already succeeded in an AI doing math Olympiad exercises and those are often hard. It was reported the AI was almost as good as the best human participant but it is always a question how that is actually measured. For example does the AI need to hand over the calculations or is just the answer enough?
Interesting detail in the Olympiad stuff was that they did not have enough training data and so they made artificially much more of such exercises to train the AI with. That struck me as a bit strange: How do you make millions of math Olympiad questions?     

Anyway the new post was on an de Moivre identity for those elliptic complex numbers that are ruled by another form of imaginary unit. One that behaves as i^2 = -1 + i. All stuff that is a circle in the complex plane as many people know it now become ellipses. Often you can find a one-on-one correspondence between such spaces these elliptic complex spaces are not brand new spaces in that sense.
I tried to do a few internet searches but even Google (that I mostly avoid these years) had not one meaningful search result. Not even one of my own pictures while from before the present AI hype Google could already read the content of images. But not this time. 

Anyway if you want to read that mathy stuff click on the picture: 

Title of the new post: A de Moivre identiy for the i^2 = -1 + i multiplication.


Electron rant time!

I didn't make the next picture for nothing at all, it abundantly shows the nonsense that comes along with the Pauli exclusion principle. The Pauli exclusion principle says that in an electron pair the electrons must have different spins. There are only two kinds of spin so the spins must be opposite.

Furthermore the physics community believes that electrons are tiny magnets and if they have opposite spins you can only have two weird things. In the picture below I made is the so called "north pole to north pole" binding and if that crap of the professional physics community is true there must also be "south pole to south pole" bindings or bridges as I often name them. 

Anyone with only basic knowledge of chemistry and chemical bonds will understand that likely the stuff below is not very good at holding molecules together. If on the other hand you view electrons as magnetic monopoles, all of a sudden the Pauli principle becomes logical and not that extremely mysterious thing the physics professors make of it. 

This week I did see one of those horrible video's and I am sorry but I forgot to note the title or so. But the guy in the video explained the electron pair by drawing next together on the black board an arrow pointing up and next to it an arrow pointing down. 

In the view of this idiot that represented "opposing spins". After that Mr. Total Idiot took his chalk and did draw a circle through the two arrows stating that this is how the magnetic field lines go.   

So Mr. Total Idiot explains the mysterious anti-alignment of electrons by stating they are aligned because the magnetism goes around in a loop. 

You know I am often dissatisfied with the average math professor. But that is more like they miss creativity while those physics professors are far more worse because they simply talk rubbish out of their neck and get paid for it.  

It still stays a mystery: Why can't people like Mr'. Total Idiot or for that matter 100% of the physics community not see all these problems that come with "Everything must be a bipolar magnet, even electrons"?

I just don't get it: There quantum computers will never work so why go on behaving so stupid day in day out year in year out?


End of this update, as always thanks for your attention and till next week or so. Or next year or whatever what.  


(21 Feb 2024) Avdiivka seems to be lost and there are now Russian flags hanging... It comes at an estimated less for Russia of almost 50 thousand dead and wounded, to put it in perspective: That is more than all losses during the war against Afghanistan.
In my view this also shows that at the Kremlin things are nor very rational, it is just that seething ball of emotions that was there all those years. For example back in time, the year 2014 likely, all of a sudden my country could no longer export vegetables to Russia. At that point in time I already understood that very likely in the future all of a sudden Europe would be without gas. Well guess three times what happened...

Lets go to our items for today:

Item 1) Denmark makes a statement, ammo situation getting worse.
Item 2) New math post on the other website. 

 Item 1) Denmark makes a statement, ammo situation getting worse.

So that is some hefty statement: Denmark has decided it will give all it's artillery and artillery ammo to Ukraine. The Danish pm remarked that there are still stockpiles of artillery shells in Europe and they should go to Ukraine too. 

So what can I say on that? Very simple; of course I cannot give advice of what to give and what not. That is always to the decision of the individual countries. Beside that countries have to weigh their specific security situation for themselves, they also have of course a responsibility for the security to their own populations. To put it simple: The closer your country is located to Russia, the higher emergency levels of ammo you must have...

Once more I want to caution against too much hype around the F-16s deliveries from my home country. It is not a wunder waffe or a wonder weapon. It's an important and very significant weapon system and can fire an amazing wide spectrum of all kinds of ammo. But on it's own it's likely not the deciding factor to end or win this war. 


The ammo shortage begins to bite deeper, the loss of Avdiivka or however you spell the name of that place, is said to be caused by the lack of ammo. In the meantime the members of the US parliament, the congress as it is known over there, are still on a paid leave...
In this world there is never a shortage on weirdo's and with that we go to the next item. 

 Item 2) New math post on the other website. 

Last week I finally published the latest post about that version of the so called de Moivre identity. All in all it becaume about 10 pictures long and I didn't even prove the whole thing. I only worked out the square so that is n = 2 in the picture below. The post also grew a bit long because I wanted to go through all the nitty gritty details that come with it. Not that there was ever a doubt it could not be proven, once you have your new complex exponential you always get a new de Moivre identity for free. 

Another reason the post is relatively long is that I included a bit of that historical information in it, for example a formulation of how Abraham de Moivre more or less for the first time formulated his result. And as so often in math, the original stuff is often very different from how we use it today.

Of course if you want to prove the statement below you must use the rule for the imaginary unit as i^2 = -1 + i. So this is a bit different from the complex plane and that is of course the reason we can find such a new identity. I did not check in any manner if this is new or not but all in all I do not expect the professional math professors to have found this kind of a complex plane for themselves.

What I consider a cute detail is that real factor you see, that two third of the square root of 3. That factor is raised to some power n so it becomes huge for large n but the cosine & sine powers eat it all away and the end result will always be on the (unit) ellipse.

No electron rant in this update, thanks for your attention and till some other update. 


(16 Feb 2024) Here we go, no intro talk:

Item 1) Another warship sunk, drone coalition & still waiting...
Item 2) If you think you understand it, you don't understand it.

 Item 1) Another warship sunk, drone coalition & still waiting...

Yes another of those transport ships sunk, that would be about 30% of the Russian Black sea fleet in total. Two weeks ago when a smaller vessel named Ivanovets was sunk I did not have time to make a screen shot but here it is. If you want to see the short video in case you haven't, click on the picture to land at the BBC:

Link used: 

I wanted to combine the above picture with the latest drone attack but for some reason the BBC website started to fight me and I ran out of patience. Anyway you can look it up for yourself in case you missed it. 


Then there was talk about a drone coalition, this of course because drones have been so effective in this war. So that sounds as a good idea because say for yourself those Ukraine sea drones are pretty amazing.   


A lot more did happen of course, for example a new kind of hyper sonic missile fired at a target in the capital Kyiv. In the meantime we're still waiting if and when the Americans can sort their thing out.

Lets go to the next item.

  Item 2) If you think you understand it, you don't understand it.

About two weeks ago I made that middle part of the picture below. And when I made that I wanted it to use every week just to show how bizarre the world is when electrons are tiny magnets. 

So I did not do that last week because I am a very chaotic person...;)

Anyway, for me the electron pair is one of those examples that make much more sense if you view electrons as being magnetic monopoles. That makes sense in chemical bonds where that 'north pole against north pole' stuff is just total crap.

So how do professional physics people deal with it when their theories lead to very weird things? Well they deal with it like for example Feynman did (I made a typo down below, my keyboard needs replacement because it starts to wear out a bit to much). Anyway it is that famous "If you think you understand quantum mechanics, you don't understand quantum mechanics".

But a lot of these weird anomalies, like my picturing of an electron pair, is simply accepted as the way it just is. All these anomalies are there only because the electron is viewed as a tiny magnet.

Take for example so called "Anti-magnetic" materials, with that it is meant that the electron spins are as mixed as possible. So for every spin up electron there is always a spin down electron near. Now when I view my beloved electrons as the magnetic monopoles they are, it is very logical that this is the lowest energy configuration related to magnetism possible.
And if you view electrons as tiny magnets, this is a crazy configuration of being the lowest energy level. What the fuck keeps all those tiny magnets together in this crazy way?   

Well I have seen it myself a few times, they (the physics folks) explain this alternating spin stuff as "the lowest energy state for such materials". So you have a bunch of stuff with a crazy explanation (all those anti aligned dipole spins) and you just classify that as a group with this stuff the lowest energy level stuff... And that with our beloved tax money.

It is time to end this update, I want to say that I made up the text in the upper part of the picture below where I fake how he explains an electron pair. Of course it's a crazy explanation but you can rationalize it via remarking that you do understand it because you don't understand it or something like that... 


Richard is still famous today for instigating the interest there is today in quantum computers. In my house he is famous for telling the world that "There is plenty of room at the bottom".
Without doubt he was talking about bottoms of his female students and I was like wow! Yes I was like wow because that is an interesting way of teaching quantum mechanics to females: 
Can I check if there is plenty of room?   

May be it is a good time to split my dear reader, if you think you understand Richard you don't understand Richard. As always thanks for your attention. 


(14 Feb 2024) No intro talk, just two items. 

Item 1) Scholtz calls for more hardware for UA & Steadfast Defender.
Item 2) A fun math detail & a horrible video on spin liquids.

 Item 1) Scholtz calls for more hardware for UA & Steadfast Defender.

Kansler Scholtz called for a stepping up of EU military hardware production. And I agree fully with that, of course it would be nicer if those old peace dividends would just keep on growing but they don't. So there must be a strategic shift toward higher military budgets and as such also more hardware production in the EU and NATO countries. 

DW has a short video on it: 

And there is a relative large operation named Steadfast Defender. For the first time Sweden is participating too, so welcome Sweden! 

DW had a video out on that (I not on the payroll of DW, but I forgot to save the link. In the meantime I do not feel like commenting and all that political stuff like interviews or contributions from the donald.

After all I have the right to keep my brain a bit sane...;)
Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) A fun math detail & a horrible video on spin liquids.

Yesterday I had nothing to do for 10 minutes and on my smart tv is a standard app and to kill the time I looked up if there were 3D complex numbers.

That's my way of viewing monkeys, instead of going to the zoo I search for stuff like "Proof that electrons are tiny magnets". The goal is to laugh a little bit so I do that not very often.

So I clicked on one of the links as offered to be from the Microsoft and I was very surprised. A person under the name of Guilherme A C Zaluchi offered a link to my other website. And on top of that took the time to flea through a few important details like matrix representation and even the numbers alpha and tau.

Well I would like to thank Guilherme for his contribution and I smiled softly when the remark was "The inverse is much harder to take".

Anyway the reason I show you this is not to brag but there is another way of doing multiplication in 3D space. It is above the answer by Guilherme and as you see after a few seconds of inspection, the product of the imaginary units i and j must be zero. So the inverse might be more easy but that will later come with a very hefty price when you realize now the basis vectors might be non-invertible... I made my version of 3D complex numbers such that this problem would be avoided...

Electron time! The last few days the Youtube suggestion video's constantly pop up video's about topological quantum computing in general and the Kitaev spin liquid model in particular.

No it is not spin ice this time but spin liquid. And in such an electron spin liquid kind of stuff, all spins can flip if they want to. Just as easy and with that they are going to make quantum computers...

As far as I know, over there at Microsoft they still try to make quantum computers based on that topology stuff. May be it is time that the Microsoft managers just ask that simple question at their engineers:

Can you make a device that flips the spin of only one electron? Please just please?  

In my view, all that overhyped quantum cojmputing stuff based on electron spin will never work. Likely that will go for the Microsoft topological quantum computer too if it's somehow based on electron spin as that tiny magnet stuff.

The next video is horrible bad on the one hand but fascination on the other hand: Why do all these people keep on telling all that crap upon spin?

(09 Feb 2024) In my native country the first formation of a new government has failed. Interesting detail is that Peter Omzigt blamed his withdrawal on the fact there are a lot of financial skeletons in a lot of closets... That would be a bit strange from Mark Rutte, the outgoing pm. Well may be it's all gossip but that Peter guy is often rather serious, so I will follow that financial detail in the future.

Two links for today:  

Item 1) New military commander in Ukraine.
Item2) Tiny bit of math and another crazy electron spin video. 

 Item 1) New military commander in Ukraine.

The rumor mill was working overtime lately but today it was confirmed. Valery is out but stays in the UA military top and I forgot the name of the new military commander. 

Well I consider this a purely internal matter for Ukraine but I would like to write a few words on the guy. I liked Valery because he was never in the news, I considered that a good thing. With never in the news I mean he did not give many interviews or so and zero media acts. It looked like he just wanted to work without such distractions...  


And see: The Almighty generated a new miracle on earth; Valery knows how to shave...;) 

But serious, thanks for your work Valery and I hope you can make new contributions to the war effort.

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item2) Tiny bit of math and another crazy electron spin video. 

The new math post is finished, about four days ago or so, but I was lazy and I still have to turn it into pictures. For myself this post was more or less a totally useless exercise (showing the exponential circle behaves indeed exponential).

But there are also readers that are a bit more skeptical when I make such claims like new forms of the de Moivre identity. Another reason to write this post is that I wanted to see in detail myself how difficult it would be to do these relative simple calculations. In itself it's mostly manipulating gonio metric functions like sine and cosine, but writing it all neatly down is more where the complicated stuff lies. 

Last week I showed you the general version, in this post I only calculated the square and the result is shown below. If for some reason you want to check it yourself, please remark this is not the standard complex multiplication. Here you must use the rule i^2 = -1 + i to make it work. 

I think in about one week of time, the new post is hanging out on the other website.  

Let me repeat the picture from last week, this is the more general formulation that I did not prove:

Electron time! Today I found another video where a guy is happy to explain to all who want it to hear how the math of electron spin works.
And he talks and talks about that wonderful experiment known as the Stern-Gerlach experiment. And of course there is the blah blah blah related to a repeated or sequential SG experiment. 

The video is about half an hour long (I would not recommend it by the way, if you have a normal life you gain not much by watching this garbage) and never ever this guy realized that such experiments have never been done. 

That is why at the present date in the year 2024 we only talk about the Stern-Gerlach experiment from the year 1922 and how 'revolutionizing' or 'sensational' or whatever what it was.

But for so many claims the physics people make, there is not experimental evidence at all. Let me just name a few things:

1) Electrons are indeed tiny magnets, or
2) Electrons do actually anti-align themselves against an applied magnetic field, or
3) Electrons do not get accelerated by a constant magnetic field, or
4) .......  

Etc etc etc, if you want you can find a list of say one hundred important details that are believed in electron spin but are never ever tested.  

The logical thing is that electrons are magnetic monopoles with a constant unflippable monopole magnetic charge. But during the last 9 years I have learned that logic does not work, the physics community keeps on doing their weird stuff with electrons that must be tiny magnets for some untold reason. 

This time I selected a male robot from the pixabay website, it's another miracle that they have such pictures although there are more pictures of female robots. How come that? 

Anyway the screenshot shows a repeated series of SG experiments but the video guy never realized this is all theory from the Pauli guy never validated via experiment...

(07 Feb 2024) No intro just two items:

Item 1) More Dutch F16's for Ukraine, reason is unknown.
Item 2) The pdf from Martin Bauer & CERN going crazy?

 Item 1) More Dutch F16's for Ukraine, reason is unknown.

At first I had only a Dutch version of the news but later I found an English version of it. So I will place both links below. Anyway there were some plans to sell a few of our old F16's to some US company, but the deal does not go through any longer. The exact reason is unknown but now they will go to Rumania for the training center and/or to Ukraine. 

It's all future music and it doesn't help in the present ammo shortage. Someone remarked that for just flying an F16 for one hour, you need over 30 hours of maintenance to make that possible... 


May be it's a good idea to sell the F16's to Ukraine at the price for a new F35. In that case we have a new fleet of F35's for almost nothing and we can use the freed up money to pay off more state debt... Isn't that a good idea yes or yes? After all now the Ukrainians and us learn to know each other a little bit, they should learn from our frugality because that is so deeply ingrained in our Dutch souls...

Here are the two links:

Link used: netherlands-halts-f-16-sale-to-us-firm-will-send-to-ukraine-instead/

Lets go to the next item. 

  Item 2) The pdf from Martin Bauer & CERN going crazy?

The pdf from Martin with the translation of the original Stern-Gerlach publication is very good. So that is a bit of a contrast with the interview video I showed you last week between Martin and Brian Keating.

I want to remark however that the use of an inhomogeneous magnetic field was less crazy in the year 1922 compared to now when physics folks think that is the only way you can accelerate electrons with magnetic fields.   

As so often, you already feel it coming, there is no experimental proof or validation that electrons don't get accelerated by a very constant magnetic field. And the Martin & Brian just kept talking out of their necks never remarking such problems.

Anyway, here is a link to the preprint archive:

The Stern-Gerlach Experiment
Translation of: “Der experimentelle Nachweis der
Richtungsquantelung im Magnetfeld”

Link used:

Back in 1922 they were more thinking that the electron went around the nucleus and as such produced a tiny bipolar magnetic field. But that is much much larger in space compared to the magnetic field that a bipolar electron must have because it is also considered to be a point particle.

After all atoms are many orders of magnitude bigger as electrons so it might have had an effect, they were not all 100% crazy.

I haven't read the pdf in it's entirety but it contains lots of cute details, for example the exposure time of the beam of silver atoms was 8 hours! And the pressure was as low as 10 to the minus 5 mm Hg, at present day nobody uses mm Hg anymore beside old barometers. And I too had never read the original Stern-Gerlach publication while I can read German, so it's a good thing this translation is there. And of course it stays a bad thing that professional physics people just are too stupid or unwilling to see all the problems there are with electron spin as a tiny magnet.


Today or yesterday it came out that CERN has a proposal for a new particle collider of just 16 billion €. It should be about three times as long as the present one so almost one hundred km?

Well if I could vote on such a proposal I would vote:


There are so many reasons for my no vote, let me mention only two: 

Reason 1: The CERN people themselves tried to find magnetic monopoles. All their stuff failed, their versions of physical reality came not come true. They never blamed the weird theory they use, that Paul Dirac stuff.
On top of that they are to fucking stupid to find out for themselves that electrons are magnetic monopoles.   

Reason 2: The only thing the CERN folks found was that so called Higgs boson. That was in the year 2012 so now 12 years back. And although I like science like that, all these 12 years I have never seen a good explanation as why that small bubble on some graph is proof of the Higgs.
But more important: Before the present CERN particle collider was build there were also plenty of promises like super symmetric particles would now likely be found.

In my view the physics people should first clean up their beloved standard model on particle physics. Give after 100 years finally some experimental proof for claims like electrons are tiny magnets or that they only get accelerated by inhomogeneous magnetic fields.    

These CERN people are fucking incompetent and they should not be handed 16 billion € with new promises like finding dark matter.

(02 Feb 2024) I can't remember I changed a thing but all of a sudden I find myself back in some form of Youtube heaven. Normally if you start Youtube you already get a boatload of video's you just don't want to see. These video's are for lets say people with another mindset than I have.
But now I get a clean white page with a search bar on top and just one message. It looks like this, it says my history is turned off: 


Two items for today's update: 

Item 1) EU aid package for UA goes through & other US news.
Item 2) Once more on the importance of that Einstein stuff from 31 Jan.

 Item 1) EU aid package for UA goes through & other US news.

It was the breaking news of the day, within an hour or so after the meeting started the news was the 50 billion € aid package for Ukraine can go on. So that is good news and it's important because it's a multi year package until 2027 or so. It's 17 billion in gifts and 33 billion in loans. The loans were described like soft loans so my understanding is that if Ukraine is late on paying say 50 cents, we won't confiscate Ukraine itself...;) 

But we ain't there yet, the EU aid is for non-military stuff like salaries of government civil workers or pensions to low income people. It's not military gear and for that it would be great if the USA can come together and do the right thing. And my dear USA political leaders, for your aid package you get an awful lot of Russian military killed, now who says no to that? 

I first saw the breaking news of DW, so click on the picture for the video:

There was much more news today, in Crimea the Belbek airport came under attack by Ukraine. If I understand that correctly the Russians had a lot of air planes close together (likely they did not expect an attack) and as such there was relatively much damage.
A 70 million € Tarantal class corvette was sunk, it was attacked by sea drones. See for example the Suchominus channel.

Also very interesting are those rumors that finally the small diameter bombs are already in Ukraine or are about to be shipped that way. That's great but it's still a rumor. The significant detail is of course their range is longer as the standard HIMARS ammo the Ukrainians now get.   


And Joe from Joe Blogs had another video out over the yearly reporting on the Russian economy. Last year we had the strange details that shrinking oil and gas sales by Russia were compensated by non oil and gas sales but nobody knew what that was.
This year we seem to have the same mystery but the good news is that the income of Russia from gas & oil is significantly down last year 2023 compared to 2022 or 2021.
It is worth noting the figures as published by the Russians are not wholly reliable because for example I still don't know what that non oil & gas stuff actually is. Here is the video:

At last the ratio of artillary use between Ukraine and Russia seems to be 1:5. So that is a huge disadvantage for Ukraine...
Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Once more on the importance of that Einstein stuff from 31 Jan.

For people who do not know what the Stern Gerlach experiment is, look for details on the internet for yourself. Anyway the guys Brian Keating and Martin Bauer from the last video (see below) were stating that Einstein himself pushed for those repeated experiments. 

As far as I know no such experiment was ever successful. Einstein has also given advice to the Frish and Segré guys that wanted to flip the spin of the electrons after they were spin selected. That experiment failed. 

If such an experiment in the last century had been successful, in that case today we would mostly speak about that and much much less about the original Stern-Gerlach experiment. And why is that? 

Well in quantum mechanics they have that weird principle that says that if the properties of a quantum particle are unmeasured, in that case it is ALWAYS in a superposition of those possible states. The whole present hype of quantum computing is build on that rather weird and improvable principle.  

If a repeated or sequential experiment would have been successful, in that case such a person would have found experimental evidence for that principle. As such this person or persons would have won a Nobel prize almost sure. As we all know, the Nobel prize is the most sought prize in physics.

But as far as I know there is never a Nobel prize handed out for that. Furthermore I only see dumb people talking about repeated or sequential SG experiments. They are dumb because they never realize it might be handy if such results actually came for an experiment done or it is just overpaid physics professors talking out of their neck once more.

Now over the last 9 years my view on electron spin has evolved from "The physics people think it's a tiny magnet" to what I think at present day:

Electrons are permanent magnetic monopoles and there is nothing that can 'flip' their spin state just like it's a permanent electric monopole.

So for me it is very important that all repeated SG-experiments fail, the lack of track record in the history of physics combined with the tiny detail never ever a Nobel prize has been handed out for this, suggests once more to me it is impossible to kill the idea that electrons are magnetic monopoles.


After having clarified the above, I also did forget to remark that in the picture below is a big stupid thing on top. That big stupid thing is the idea that at the same time that electrons are tiny magnets, an electron pair is made up from two electrons with opposite spins.

It is clearly nonsense, nature does not work that way and you don't have to be a physics professor to understand this. An electron pair can't work that way, that is rubbish.

So here is the picture once more, if you click on it you get the two guys Brian Keating and Martin Bauer sharing their insights on the significance of the SG experiment from the year 1922.     

From the flow of information between these two people, is it wise to estimate that physics people will only understand the problem with the tiny magnet model for electron spin in say the year 2500?

This looks like a reasonable estimate so since I am a reasonable person myself I think it is time we split and as such this update is ended.  


(31 Jan 2024) Just two items, no intro talk. 

Item 1) Waiting for a miracle & Jens in Washington.
Item 2) De Moivre identity & video on the Stern-Gerlach experiment.

 Item 1) Waiting for a miracle & Jens in Washington.

All in all I am not very positive upon funding for Ukraine. It might very well go wrong in Washington and of course in the EU it's problematic too. Well lets hope for the best and prepare for the worst as the saying is... 

There was also some renewed talk last week upon seizing the frozen reserves from the Russian central bank. That is important too if you look at the numbers: It's about 300 billion $ if memory serves. Or about five times the size of the US proposal if that one goes through.

In another development Jens Stoltenberg the present NATO chief went to Washington. Of course there is a boatload to discuss. I only write about Ukraine but there was also an attack on US soldiers in Jordan, all that Palestine stuff and so on and so on. Sometimes I wonder if war is some contagious kind of virus...

I didn't have time to view the entire press conference but on C-Span they have the whole thing. Interesting detail: Anthony Blinken is left handed. You might say 'So what?' But I belong to that oppressed minority too, so Anthony and I we are two lefties.

As always click on the picture if you want to see the press conference:

 Item 2) De Moivre identity & video on the Stern-Gerlach experiment.

After a bit of doubt I decided to craft the new so called de Moivre formular or identity for that elliptic kind of complex plane you get when you use the rule i^2 = -1 + 1.  

If you have ever done an elementary course on complex numbers, likely you have seen this de Moivre formula. You can always use that in case you have forgotten what sin(2t) or cos(2t) were when expressed into sin(t) and cos(t). 

Historical detail: This de Moivre identity proceeds the Euler stuff by something like half a century. Anyway this de Moivre guy was an interesting guy, there is even a martingale that carries his name. Here is a good wiki on the biography and works of Abraham de Moivre:  

As so often in math, the first findings were often very different from how we use them today. That also goes for the present form of the de Moivre formula. Abraham himself had a more or less inverted version from it.  

Anyway I have no idea when the next post is ready but here is the new identity itself. The AI picture of the humanoid is from Pixabay. If you need pictures that are free to use it is a great place that Pixabay, until last week I had never been there but it's a nice website.

Most of the time you won't need more complicated de Moivre identities. That goes also for me, of course there are more ways of finding say cos(2t) but even I never need stuff for like below cos(2t + pi/6).

But writing down such new de Moivre identities is always a feast in itself, so it's not very practical but it is still a feast to do. 


Electron time! 

Brian Keating had a long video out with Martin Bauer from Germany. For me it is very interesting because it contains information that I did not know or if I knew it was forgotten or neglected. 

But Einstein himself was much more involved in the Stern-Gerlach experiment than I knew. Albert himself secured a lot of the funding of the original SG experiment. On top of that it was Albert Einstein himself that pushed for those 'repeated SG experiments' that would confirm the math rules for spin flip of electrons in case the magnetic field changes direction.

May be this Einstein involvement causes that even today in the year 2024 people still tell that crap about repeated Stern-Gerlach experiments.

In my view the mistake physics people make is that they think electron spin is some fragile quantum state. And just a tiny amount of energy will flip the spin state of the electron.

I think that is all 100% BS and even in a nuclear explosion no electron flips spin state. Electrons are magnetic monopoles just like they are electric monopoles and all that blah blah blah from the two guys in the video is just what it is: Blah blah blah.  

Brian and Martin: Show me the FUCKING experiment that validates the math rules you guys use for electron spin flip and all that stuff. In nine years of time I still haven't found it.

Well I am glad for all the new info in this video, but why does the electron has to be a tiny magnet as both gentlemen seem to think?

That is why I placed my version of the electron pair from last week on top of the two talking heads thinking electrons are tiny magnets while they have no fucking experimental evidence for that.

Ok, lets leave it with that while I still do not understand why two of such guys keep on believing into the tiny magnet model for the electron and why two such smart guys absolutely don't talk about other experiments you could do. I think that is just like asking a math professor about why not using elliptical complex numbers?

Thanks for your attention, see you in a next update.  

(26 Jan 2024) Bah, one of my wrists hurts so it is better to keep this update short. 

Item 1) UK to USA: Don't go wobbly!
Item 2) A picture of the official version of electron spin.

  Item 1) UK to USA: Don't go wobbly!

No comment on that tragic loss of a plane where in according to Russia were 65 Ukrainian POW's. All POW's included the nine crew are dead. So that was some sobering news it this is all correct.


The New York Times has a article with the funny title ‘No Time to Go Wobbly’ where the NYT explains why the UK is lobbying the US republicans. 

And may be that is a good idea, after all the UK conservatives and the USA counter parts are often on the same level playing field when it comes to cognitive capabilities. And in such situations there is often meaningful communication possible. While if the cognitive levels are very different or asymmetric if you want and the ways of thinking between two groups is just very very different, in such cases it is not possible or much harder to have meaningful communications...
May be you hit a pay wall and I would recommend not to read the article or at least avoid paying for it, it's not such high journalism that it is worth money. But it's a funny article title, click on the picture to land at NYT:

Sometimes when I try to explain to people why the electrons cannot be tiny magnets, often they have a very empty look in their eyes. And that is not because they are stupid, I remember a time when I was such a person myself. 

All I knew nine years ago is that people from the field of physics think that electrons are tiny magnets. That is all I knew and for me too it took a long time before I could go forth and back between electrons being bipolar tiny magnets compared to electrons that have a monopole magnetic charge. 

And now so many years later this has become so easy that it is hard to imagine that other relative smart people are so slow when it comes to understanding the implications of the 'tiny magnet' model compared to what I think: electrons are permanent monopole magnets. (So there's two kinds of electrons so to say). 

It is well known that in an electron pair the electrons must have opposite spins, that is known as the Pauli exclusion principle. But what the physics community will never tell you that if you apply such idea's to tiny magnets, you get all kinds of weird stuff. 

Bipolar magnets, large or small, should always bind or connect via the principle that only opposite poles attract. As such if it was true that electrons are tiny magnets, their magnetic fields should align.

And they should not anti align like I made in the next picture:    

It is important to realize that what is in the above picture is the official version of electron spin without magnetic monopolism.

But such an image is not findable on the internet, I had to make it myself. This is what the physics professors never tell you because if they show pictures like this everybody understands that they are crazy.
So that's why you always get those boatloads of math when they talk about magnetism.    

I have to say it works pretty well, most people just don't see when a patch of math is a good cover of what is known as physical reality and when a patch of math is clearly misused.

For example Rabi oscillations between electron spin states, it's an interesting boatload of math but if electrons are just permanent magnetic monopoles it is just bull shit.
Anyway yesterday on the other website I finally posted a new post on magnetism. May be if you are a reader of this homepage you have already seen that all because I selected the two most cute magnetic details as I wrote them on this website.

Here is the link to the new post:

That mysterious electron pair and so called VESPR theory

In this post I selected the idiot talk from Cornell university (electron pairs explained that is is just like two bar magnets connect with opposite poles, the Cornell people are truly stupid). And of course VESPR theory, this theory comes more from the chemical sciences and may be I like it therefore more as the crap that always comes from the physics community.   

That's it for this update, as always thanks for your attention. 


(24 Jan 2024) I didn't save any links so this is just me talking or writing and no link. Two items for today's update: 

Item 1) Random Ukraine stuff.
Item 2) Tiny bit old math & repeat stupid Cornell explanation.

  Item 1) Random Ukraine stuff.

As always much to much did happen to comment upon. A crazy high number of civilian wounded caused by the latest Russian missile attacks while Russia is claiming they only targeted military production facilities...

Well the Kremlin and it's internal steams of information will always be a source of utter amazement. It really is a parallel universe or may be better: it's a part of crazyland.

Now the ink of my previous post wasn't even dry and there was another target hit in the neighborhood of St. Petersburg. This time a gas producing facility that makes liquid gas for export is my understanding. Well after all those strikes from Russia against Ukrainian energy infra structure, this is of course an allowed target.  

This gas facility attack had much more success compared to the oil attack from last week in the same area of Russia. Here it took one full day before the fires were more or less under control. And if gave a wonderful picture with all that frozen water:


And not directly related to Ukraine but it seems the Turkish parliament has voted on membership of Sweden for the NATO alliance. I still think it was rather unhandy to burn Korans in Sweden during demonstrations, but it seems that under Swedish law it is allowed to so such things. You can talk long or short on stuff like this, but I always frown upon those weirdo's burning those religious books while I do not have a problem with burning a flag or so. But in Sweden it's allowed to burn religious texts so the only thing that protects them is the limited discipline of those demonstrators. Anyway I would like to thank the Turks for letting Sweden in!
The only country that has not given permission to enter NATO is of course Hungary...  

But I do not feel like commenting on Hungary so lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Tiny bit old math & repeat stupid Cornell explanation.

I was thinking about a magnetic post for on the other website containing two updates from this website in the previous year: 

That totally stupid explanation of electron pairs by Cornell university.
And the way the so called VESPR theory works where the building blocks for atoms and molecules emerge from the fact that electron pairs repel each other.

Today I thought of a similar thing as stupid as the Cornell explanation, it goes with money and is as next: 

If you have money in a savings account or if you have taken on a loan and you are indebted, in that case you always get so called interest. So all you have to do is take on a loan because it acts 'just like' your savings account...

In case you don't remember the stupid line of reasoning by Cornell, it was about electrons as tiny magnets and in order to form electron pairs it is known the electrons must have opposite spin. Having opposite spins is also known as 'anti alignment' and is for sure one of the biggest mysteries in physics: Why do electrons anti-align themselves?
Of course at Cornell they never explain that kind of nonsense they keep on repeating year in year out.

Well I think that electrons are not tiny magnets but they are monopoles when it comes to magnetism, just like their electric charge is a monopole. If you look at it that way it becomes much much more logical as why an electron pair is neutral under application of magnetic fields.

Here is that tax payer paid crap once more: 


In another development in the graphical package DESMOS you can find online, after seeing last week that guy adding up the first 200 terms of the famous Riemann zeta function, I decided to do the same with my modified Dirichlet kernels. 

And in yet another development I finally was that smart to go to Pornhub and look over there for so called 'female robots'. The result was very strange: Ok ok now the robots have better tits, actually they look pretty amazingly good, but now they have NO FACE! 

The things you have to do for science, it is just amazing. How can you find out if these robots have hollow tits yes or no? Can you very politely use a rubber hammer on their tits and hear if it sound hollow? 

And why do female robots need tits anyway? Life is full of deep deep mysteries like why do physics people believe in electron spin as tiny magnets? If they would use that tax payer money more wisely they would investigate if these tits are hollow or massive. Likely that will lead to some "New Physics" as they call it. 

Anyway in the picture below you can see the fourth modified Dirichlet kernel and that is one of the building blocks for the 4D complex exponential. I just wanted to see how it looked in the DESMOS package and after that I added up the first 200 terms. 


Now my scientific research did arrive at the next conclusion: These tits are likely fake tits and the robots do not have a face because they come from a computer game named Atomic Heart.

May be now is the right time to split so we can go our own way in parallel universes and as always thanks for your attention.  


(19 Jan 2024) Wow man how terrible cold is it over here! During daytime about +1 degree Celcius while in the middle of the night temperatures get as cold as minus one or even TWO degrees BELOW ZERO!

I don't think much Russians will read this but if you are sitting there without heating and or electricity, I understand your troubles! Wow man minus 25 or even minus 30 sounds just like that horrible minus 1 we have over here!

May be Russians can find peace of heart by understanding that if something does not kill you, it will only make you stronger. Just like a bottle of Vodka, just one bottle does not kill you so it makes you so strong that you think like "Why not another bottle?"

I have an extra picture but I did not want to delete it because may be that is considered as genocide on snowmen, a practice that is illegal of course. So here it is:

But lets go to the two items of today:    

Item 1) Two very different video's about and from Ukraine.
Item 2) Finally the latest math post is finished.

 Item 1) Two very different video's about and from Ukraine.

The first video is from Anna from Ukraine. It's a bit more emotional but also very charming. It's also a bit of a motivation that we must keep on helping Ukraine and not tire for no reason at all.

After all it took me about 11 years before I had my stomach full of the War on Terror and this war isn't even two years old. Click on Anna's picture to see her video:  


Link used:

Yes I haven't read that news but it seems to blow up in St. Petersburg because of UA drones or may be local Russians that want to get rid of their government. 


The next video is from Paul from the video channel Combat Veteran Reacts. It is very interesting because this video highlights a bit the data streams you need in combat in this 21-th century. 

Paul himself has fought in Afghanistan so that was likely a decade ago or so and he tells how difficult it often was to make sure you have communications with different military posts over there.

Even longer ago, in the beginning of the 1980-ties I was a soldier myself working in what we name 'Verbindingen'. Translated that would be lines of communication but those words are also used for just transporting all kinds of stuff. Anyway I had a telex with encryption and one or two radio channels with unencrypted stuff.
The telephone was done by rolling out hundreds of meters of cables and everywhere there were telephonists who's job it was to plug in the cables so the telephone calls could reach their target destination.
All in all this was not much bytes per second but it was better compared to a situation where you had no telex, radio or telephone at all...

Right now in Ukraine they use systems like Starlink and those connection speeds are just like my own internet connection. Compared to how fast I could type text on my telex back in time, this is a very huge improvement.   

I think Paul is a bit over the top in his intro that Ukrainians have leapfrogged over US and NATO command centers. Eventually those command centers will pick up but in the military things often don't go that fast.
And of course in the military everything has to be of 'military grade' for the obvious reasons, making the stuff military grade is a long process in itself. After that militaries have to buy it and that can also take a long time before it is actually used.
By no means this is a criticism of Western militaries, this is just how it works. They always have limited means because it's taxpayer money and as such it is better to think a bit longer before you spend that taxpayer money...

Click on the picture for the video from Paul:

In the end things will pick up, compare it for example to 10 Sept 2001: There was no video surveillance of the Pentagon building itself. And now there likely is, so in the end all militaries can evolve if needed... 

 Item 2) Finally the latest math post is finished.

Yesterday I finally published the latest math post and I checked on the post before that and it was published on 20 Dec last year. So this post although it's math at the surface is not very deep, it took me a bit long to write.

Anyway it's seven pictures long and an additional 3 extra figures, so all in all 10 images and for what? Well for giving two parametrization of an ellipse... 

May be this is an indication I am getting senile while on the other hand now I finally have some math that math professors could understand (complex analysis in a flat plane) it is important that no flaws are there. 

After all these years it's a bit sad for me that 3D complex numbers have never picked up any notice. Well it is what it is and I am one hundred % through with the (professional) math community.  

If they are to stupid and/or unwilling to think about higher dimensional complex numbers, that is something I have to accept.  

Anyway the latest post is finally there, I also found a new cute looking female robot so click on the picture to land at the latest post if you want to read it: 


Math post title: Two parametrizations for the ‘unit’ ellipse in the i^2 = -1 + i kind of multiplication. 

Lets leave it with that, till updates. 


(17 Jan 2024) No intro, only two items.  

Item 1) Russian AWACS down & Inside Russia on utilities breakdown.
Item 2) Finally it's finished but it's not yet published yet.

  Item 1) Russian AWACS down & Inside Russia on utilities breakdown.

It's already a few days in the news but it seems that a Russian version of the AWACS system plus a huge command air plane were destroyed respectively damaged. 

So that's the second AWACS they lost if memory serves, it seems they have something like 10 left but only about 6 in active duty. If this AWACS tactical detail is true, in that case it is important the economical sanctions do their work and they can't rebuild such a plane in say the rest of this century...

Here is a newfeed from the BBC: 
Article title: Ukraine says it shot down Russian A-50 spy plane
Link used: 

Below you see that so called damaged tail of the command plane. As the BBC also mentioned these details are hard to verify given just one picture.


Konstantin from the video channel Inside Russia had a good video out explaining the finer details behind all those breakdowns of utilities they have over there in Russia.

In my memory Konstantin is an economist but in the video he tells that he knows a bit about electrical equipment. After all he bought some stuff from Siemens and if you buy stuff like that you must understand what you buy. And may be he is an economist too, I just don't know but the video is very interesting.

Anyway for me it is very interesting because I would like to see a breakdown of the Russian military forces to the extend that they can no longer do to any other EU nation what they are doing to Ukraine.

As such all these breakdowns in Russian utilities like warm water and electricity are a welcome development as far as I am concerned. Of course the weather is also very helpful, likely without the severity of this winter the breakdown would be much less. So for that I want to thank the Almighty for this great help because who else to say thanks against?   

Click on the video from Inside Russia, as you see it's 23 minutes long:

The Ai generated picture of Joe Biden discharging his presidential duties is funny. It looks like Ai is here to stay, but for the human artists it is of course a bad thing that people can make pictures with just a few lines of text... 

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Finally it's finished but it's not yet published yet.

Yesterday I finally finished the work on the latest math post. Given the fact I am actually doing are relative simple thing, only give parametrizations for the covering of an interesting ellipse, it tool a lot of time to write it all out. 

It has also become amazingly long: Seven pictures of 550x1100 pixels and three extra figures to explain some important details. Since I now have written over 250 math posts of course it has happened before posts became rather long. But that covered much more math so to say, this is only just two parametrizations of the same ellipse...

On the other hand there are all kinds of reasons as why this post became so long. The first parametrization is based on finding the logarithm of the number i that rules the (elliptical) complex multiplication. The rule says that i^2 = -1 + i so it is a bit different from the complex plane where we have i^2 = -1.  

With this small modification of the way the complex multiplication works we now have the very interesting property that i^3 = -1. That gave me the idea for the second way of finding or crafting a parametrization: See what you get if you project the three dimensional complex exponential (a circle) on the xy-plane.

And that was an interesting discovery: You get the same ellipse! 

So the first way of crafting the parametrization was an invention because you have to work often hard and long to find the logarithm of imaginary units. And the second parametrization was a discovery.

Now often in weird Youtube video's you see overpaid academics ask each other that stupid question: Is mathematics invented or discovered? That is a stupid question, compare it to say roads. Are roads made from asphalt or from stones?

The question if math is discovered or invented is rather easy to answer:

If you work hard and long to get some desired result, this is clearly an invented piece of math. You often need a lot of time for that.
A discovery on the other hand is if you just 'try some stuff out' and that solves the whole fucking problem. It's just a few second or minutes of trying and such mathematical results are classified by me as discoveries.

Anyway in the picture below you see the two parametrizations at the top and bottom of the picture. The female robot thing is from pixabay, it is for free use so I do not need to pillage & plunder images because it's free anyway... And don't forget that in the picture below i^2 = -1 + i and not just -1.


If you would ask me what parametrization I like the most, that is hard to say. Of course I like it when after finding a number tau I also can figure out how that complex exponential works.

But if you just 'do some stuff' in a short time frame and you find or discover the second parametrization, that is also cute.

Lets leave it with that, thanks for not falling asleep during my incoherent ramblings. So see you in a next update.


(12 Jan 2024) Only one item for this update because I still haven't finished the new math post while I also have no fresh stuff for a rant against weird physics professors that think electrons are tiny magnets. No wondering as why the physics professors themselves can't see the wrongs with that idea, the idea that electrons 'must be' tiny magnets without any experimental validation. So no rant against that class of incompetent professorial parasitic physics people, no why rant against those that are mathematical inferior beings that are too stupid to understand they have a problem...;) ?

There is an old song from the sixties titled "No milk today, my love has gone away" and as such I can only sing "No rant today, my brain has gone away".

Therefore only a bit of Ukraine related stuff in this update:    

Item 1) Random UA related stuff.

  Item 1) Random UA related stuff.

Random thing 1: It was reported that in the USA about one billion in military aid to Ukraine was not tracked properly. Ok every billion in that category is a billion to much but on the scale of things I would say the one billion is a good number. If it later turns out that one billion was just the tip of the iceberg I might change opinion but for now this does not sound like a bad number. 

Corruption. Now a lot of people always say that Ukraine is so corrupt but in this entire war as far as I know not much military gear has been stolen or sold on black markets. In the beginning of the war you had a few of those pictures from anti tank boom stuff, but if checked it were always just Russians trying some weird Russian stuff. 

For example I have heard of no infantry transport vehicle being sold for the value of it's scrap metals. So from the point of view of corruption, it could be much much worse.

Source Axios: Over $1B of U.S. military aid to Ukraine not properly tracked: Pentagon report. Link used: 


Random thing 2: Were Russian casualties in the long Sovjet-Afghanistan war really that low? This war happened a long time ago when I was a soldier myself and at the time it was a big thing. In this old military conflict there was a guy named Osama bin Laden why studied all that war stuff a little bit and arrived over the years at the conclusion that the USA was only using the mujahedin in order to fight Russia... But those were other times. 

Anyway, here is a quote from a wiki. You must not compare that to the present 300+ thousand Russians because they are counted a casualties. So that dead and wounded so it's not over 300 thousand deaths. But here is the quote: 

The total official fatalities of the Soviet Armed Forces, frontier, and internal security troops came to 14,453. Other estimates give a figure of 26,000 killed Soviet soldiers. 

A wiki: Soviet–Afghan War Link used: 

Ok now it is about time for a nice picture, I think this was from the Axios report. This shows how we, decadent fascist homosexual Europeans think when we hear the words "Winter" and "Russia": 


I still don't understand why we are "decadent" but at some circles in the Kremlin they seem to think that. That's bit strange because if you would ask me what subspecies is decadent I would say the children of the Russian elites. Or the kids of those weird Russians with all their super yachts, I mean that is decadent.   


Random thing number 3: A Youtube channel named Military & History. 

It is from a German guy and the German tradition is just like me that we want to think through a lot of stuff and we always want validation and proof and not jump to conclusions too fast. 

This channel is more or less a typical German way of doing stuff, it is very very different from say those war channels done by Americans. Also you must like it a bit when about 20 minutes long it only goes about (possible) changes in the long front in Ukraine. So even I do not watch all those front moves every day but only every now and then, and for that this channel is rather reliable in what it posts.

That was it more or less for this update. We are still in the waiting phase of more help for Ukraine comes forward from the EU and USA but for the time being there are 'political problems' so to say.

As always thanks for your attention.  


(10 Jan 2024) It's also getting very cold over here: By day minus one and by night minus 4 or 5 degrees Celcius... So that's not much but of course already in a neighboring province named Friesland they already prepare a bit for a famous 200 km ice skating event. Let hope it will go on, the skating I mean.

Weather forecasts say where I live we could get about 20 cm of snow. Bah, I don't mind if it freezes but all that snow is much more irritating. Anyway two items for today so lets go:   

Item 1) UA air defense ammo shortage & drone production surplus.
Item 2) Some cute math & a Sabine video.

  Item 1) UA air defense ammo shortage & drone production surplus.

These days more and more if I want to read some news about Ukraine I have to search for it. In the past it was much more in the foreground of the news, so is there too a bit of tiredness going on?

Two Reuters reports for today, there are a few good photo's in it. There is a shortage in air defense ammo: 

Ukraine has deficit of anti-aircraft guided missiles - air force 
Link used:

You can already read in the success rate of downed Russian rockets and drones that it starts to bite. The next report is a bit more uplifting: 

The Ukrainians produce more drones as there are funds to buy them. Of course that is a much better situation compared to when there are plenty of funds but nothing to buy... 


Report title: Ukraine producing more drones than state can purchase, minister says.
Link used:

Since the Reuters photo's were clearly copyright protected for once I decided not to use such stuff. So that's why the above photo is not a winter photo. At the end of this item I wish the US soldiers warm feet, at least for a few minutes a day... Winter can be a rough rough thing.

Lets go to the next item.  

  Item 2) Some cute math & a Sabine video.

My progress with the new math post goes amazingly slow. That's not a problem because it is just a nice hobby and it gives a bit of time so I can ask myself why that fucking ellipse just doesn't go away?

I hope most of my readers know that if you project a circle on a plane under some angle, you mostly get an ellipse. So one day I decided to project the three dimensional complex exponential on the xy-plane.  

That might sound complicated math talk but all I do is leave the z-coordinates out or declare them zero. To my surprise there was that ellipse again: x^2 + xy + y^2 = 1. Actually it was not that one but it had the same shape. 

Ok ok there might be some math reasons as why my good old 3D complex exponentials get projected on this particular elliptic shape. They both love the third power of imaginary units to be one or minus one...  

After all on the ellipse we have an imaginary unit i with the interesting property that i^3 = -1. As such powers of i have a period of six just like the complex multiplication in three dimensions.

Anyway, here is how I found that parametrization with the strange + 0.5 in it that I showed you a few weeks ago:  


So that's how I found that result, now all I need to do is write out the new post and go on to drink another pint of beer...); 


May be it is time to go to the video from Sabine Hossenfelder. I like Sabine a lot because at least she can be a bit critical on say the study of quantum particles like they do at say CERN.

So that is a good thing. But she is also a believer in electron spin as a tiny magnet, so that is a bad thing. 

Therefore since it is now the year 2024 I once more used that famous background "The Scream" for saying "No, no, no!" albeit now in German. 

So as always click on the picture for the video, the video itself is very interesting because just like everyone else I too would love it if the so called "Moore's law" is there just a few years longer.

That was it for this update, so no rant upon you cannot flip the spin of an electron. No, I want a pint and not write a rant...


(05 Jan 2024) The two items for this update are: 

Item 1) Safe skies over paradise?
Item 2) Finally that math picture finished...

 Item 1) Safe skies over paradise?

Ok ok if you are an Ukrainian you might feel annoyed by such a title while over there they had two huge barrages of Russian rockets and Iranian drones. Anyway it is not meant to be annoying but I hardly had any time today to follow the news.  

So only at 23.00 yesterday I could find a few minutes and check the headlines. 

Without doubt one of the Russian goals was of course to see if they could overload the Ukrainian air defenses. And that is understandable but with such an attitude that comes with a price: The more things like Kinzhals get successfully shot from the skies, the more can be learned from the data flowing from that.

Like said before, for us this is important because those hyperspeed missiles also have a nuclear capability so if those Patriot systems get upgraded again and again, may be in a future year we will be glad to have such anti Kinghals fire power.

Likely the next picture shows what the Ukrainians made from it: 


I only read a news article from the business insider, I got the picture from above from there too. Now we are in an environment where politics might turn away from Ukraine I want to emphasize once more we have a clear vested interest ourselves in such knowledge.

After all every nuclear bomb shot from the skies is a lot of human suffering less. But try to explain that to the Hungarian weirdo or to those USA republicans that tie closure of the border with Mexico to their UA aid package...

Winston Churchill once remarked that the USA always did the right thing after exhausting all other possibilities. Let's hope this time it is not different from those long lost years dating back to WWII.

Anyway click on the picture for the Business Insider article that explains why those battlefield data from Ukraine have value to us. Don't forget the very first report of a Kinzhal shot down was just after the Patriot systems getting an upgrade. I am not saying the first Kinzhal was shot down because of that upgrade because I have no such proof for such a claim. And if the Patriot upgrade was important into brining down the first Kinzhal, that will be classified information anyway so it is not accessible by my anyhow...


Article title: Shooting down Russia's overhyped missiles with Patriots is a win for more than just Ukraine. The war is an 'intelligence bonanza' for the West. 

The link to the article is too long to post, if it does not work try to remove the end where it reads: ?international=true&r=US&IR=T 

At last we must not forget these Russian rocket attacks do a lot of damage to real people living in real houses. So I might sound coldhearted by talking about military data that could be beneficial to us, but war is not a thing you should do with too much emotion anyway. It must be efficient and often you need a cold cold heart for that... 

 Item 2) Finally that math picture finished...

Last week I already wanted to make the picture below but I did not have enough time. Last Tuesday I wanted to post this picture but then that video with the two main faults in the Stern-Gerlach experiment came along. So I postponed making the picture once more.

After all if in just one video you have all that crap physics professors believe is true, that pushes away my math temporarily. The two main faults are of course the way they calculate the force on an electron due to magnetism. The other main fault is likely they think measuring electron spin is a probabilistic thing while I think electrons are magnetic monopoles that can never 'flip their spin state'.

So all that quantum computer crap based on qubits based on electron spin will never work because those qubits can't change their spin state. Now try to explain that to Viktor Orban from Hungary or for that matter any dumb shallow thinking physics professor... You will fail!


Yesterday I finally made the picture, it is the complex exponential for a complex plane that is ruled by i^2 = -1 + i. So it is a bit different from the usual complex plane that is ruled by i^2 = -1. 

I've shown you a few parametrizations of the unit ellipse before but this one below is solely based on the number tau. The number tau is the logarithm of the imaginary unit i.  

So this is how it looks: 


That was it for this update. Thanks for your attention and once more a happy 2024. Let me try to upload my garbage to the biggest garbage can humanity has: The internet. 


(03 Jan 2024) Of course a happy new year to all. It's late already over here so lets go to the two items for this update. 

Item 1) Joe Blogs on the Russian economy, ruble & stuff.
Item 2) One video with the two main faults from the SG experiment.

 Item 1) Joe Blogs on the Russian economy, ruble & stuff.

The Wall Street Journal or so had declared Putin a winner of 2023 because Russia was so good at evading sanctions. It sounded like Joe was a bit annoyed by that because he comes with a long analysis from Yale that makes a bit more sense. 

But sometimes you read very dumb stuff. So as lately the Russian central bank lifted it's main interest rate from 15% to 16% if I remember it correctly. To my surprise I came across a piece of news with the title "Russian economy runs risk of overheating".
More stupid as that is hard imagine, the rates are that high to protect the value of the ruble. There are all kinds of capital controls in place as for example Russian companies that have reserves in foreign currencies have to convert a huge part into ruble. Again that is needed to support the ruble.  

And yes, inflation can easily occur when the economy is overheated. But in my view the rising costs of imports are a much larger part of explaining the Russian inflation. Oh the other hand, there seems to be a labor shortage in Russia, and that can have inflationary consequences too.  

Anyway, click on the picture to see the video: 

Video title: RUSSIAN Ruble is Dead as a Currency - Yale SOM Lists Reasons Why 2023 Was a Disaster for Russia
Link used:

As always Joe's titles are always a bit over the top.  

And there are new economical sanctions related to the Russian exports of gold. I have no idea how bit that trade is so that is something to keep an eye on. 

Also a lot of stuff still needs to fall in deeper over time. For example the cannibalization of all those air planes they have stolen. Without new spareparts they have to scrap entire planes in usage for spare parts. That is also a thing to watch in say the next 15 years...   

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) One video with the two main faults from the SG experiment.

As far as I remember this is the very first video that I see in all those years that has the two main faults in just one video. For people that do not know waht a SG experiment is: That's the famous Stern-Gerlach experiment from the year 1922. Informally said it was the discovery of electron spin.

The first fault is the idea this only works if the magnetic field has a gradient. They calculate a force via taking a spatial derivative and that's it.  

The problem my dear reader is easy to understand: Electrons are accelerated by magnetic fields while they think the electron is a tiny magnet. But if you hold a bar magnet of say 10 cm long in an inhomogeneous magnetic field, you can imagine feeling a net force. Because both poles of your bar magnet feel different forces resulting in a net force into some direction.

But if you take a bar magnet of the same strength but it is now 20 cm long, if you hold that in the same non-constant magnetic field you must feel more net force.

To put it simple: If the electron only feels a net force on it's tiny magnetic poles, the net force should take into account the distance between the poles. So you must multiply the gradient against this tiny distance and that should be your basis of estimating the net force on the electron.

And don't forget: In the SG experiment it is one single electron that is responsible for the separation of the beam of silver atoms into the two magnetic states known as electron spin.

All that stuff with tiny dipole magnets, it makes not much sense. If you do not take into account the electron size, its all crap.


The second fault is at the bottom of the picture below: Repeated SG experiments. This is also a thing that only lives in the imagination or in the brains of the physics professionals. There is no experimental evidence you can flip the spin of a single electron, there are only animations of how this is supposed to work.

My dear reader, very likely this entire year I will keep on thinking that electrons are magnetic monopoles and that this magnetic charge is as permanent as the electric charge an electron has.   

Hey fucking physics community: Can you give me in this new year 2024 only one experiment that proves or validates your weird idea's upon electrons being tiny magnets?

Of course my dear reader they won't because they don't have it.

It's about time to go to the video:

For myself speaking it is funny I can start this new year with a video with the two main faults in it. In the meantime I think all physics professors will keep on thinking this entire year that electrons are tiny magnets. That is also funny; how can you be so stupid for so long?

End of this update & have a good year.  


(29 Dec 2023) The last update of the year 2023 already. Anyway a happy new year to all. And lets not get sentimental like "Oh oh another year closer to my coffin!" No, why should we do that?

Anyway two items for today:  

Item 1) Russian reserves / UA F-16 speculation / NATO evolution.
Item 2) WTF are left and right handed electrons?

 Item 1) Russian reserves / UA F-16 speculation / NATO evolution.

There was some news that the USA wants to confiscate the roughly 300 billion US$ in Russian assets that are held outside Russia. In the beginning of the war I was very much in favor of that. Later I thought you must avoid a situation where central banks are afraid to park stuff in other places.  

Once investors in my country lost a total amount of say the reserves of the Dutch central bank to Russia. They held bonds that among other things financed the railroad system over there. Then came the revolution in Russia and the communists declared all payments void.

So my dear Russia, when it comes to this small transfer of money let it be known you can recover from this. Reuters has a bit more on this:

What and where are Russia's $300 billion in reserves frozen in the West? 
Link used:

Very different: The channel Combat Vet Reacts has a funny video out with a bit of the speculation of F-16's are already at work in Ukraine. Last update I said I didn't think so. All I know about now the trainees have stopped flying on fly simulators and go to Denmark for the real flight lessons.

All in all I expect that if there is news, the news is reliable. On the other hand we must not make the Russians wiser as is needed. And may be my government isn't lying at all.
May be it is true there is a group going to Denmark.
May be it is true there are still language lessons going on in the UK.
And the pilots already gone to Ukraine?
Oh oops, we cannot talk about that because that is confidential info.   

Well whatever it was that downed a bunch of Russian aircraft, it still is impressive. Here is Paul his video:

Deutsch Welle had a short video on how NATO is changing. No longer in war plans and stuff like that the enemy is not some hypothetical country. No, it's now explicit Russia.
And that is indeed a change. Back in the 1980-ties when I was a soldier it was also only implicit understood that the enemy was Russia. Or better as it was in those days: The USSR and the Eastern EU nations known as Warsaw Pact.

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) WTF are left and right handed electrons?

I have never before written about this because for me this is so crazy that for me it is hard to comment upon. If you like me think that electrons have a permanent monopole magnetic charge, just like their electric charge, the whole 'definition' of left & right handedness in electrons is totally crazy. 

The Ai generated Aztec girl has nothing to do with it. At the bottom of the picture you see a 'definition'. The letter p refers to the (linear) momentum of the electron. So the electron moves in the direction of the green arrows.
The physics professors believe that electrons are tiny magnets and these magnetic fields point into the direction S. This S is what they name the spin of the electron. 


Now why is this totally crazy? Well we are always told that spin is either up or down when a vertical magnetic field is applied. Of course electrons move in all directions so what happens if an actual electron moves in a direction different from that magnetic field?

Once more: This is all fucked up crap. Electrons have a permanent magnetic charge because otherwise molecules could not bind via electron pairs.

There are many ways to confirm the monopole character of electrons in say a chemistry lab setting:

You must have some ways of separating the electrons depending on their spin state. Look or study a particular chemical reaction when it is deprived from say the spin down electrons.

If such chemical reactions are very different or even just don't happen under deprivation, that validates electron spin state is a permanent feature. And not some arrow just pointing into some direction...

And if the physics professionals aren't weird enough, they name this handiness property a chiral thing. Here is the source of the picture that 'defines' electron left or right handiness:

Chirality (physics)

I think it is time to split and I hope you will have a pleasant transition into the year 2024. Thanks for your attention and make sure you do not need professional medical help when trying to understand electron handiness.     

Till next year. 


(27 Dec 2023) It's late, I am a bit tired so lets go to our items. 

Item 1) Wow five planes & a rubber boat? Novotjerkassk kaput.
Item 2) Tiny bit of math and an old horrible video on spin stuff.

 Item 1) Wow five planes & a rubber boat? Novotjerkassk kaput.

Well that was some Christmas weekend! Five Russian planes down and likely less of those glider bombs? That brings a smile to my face... Some observes say the last Patriot system did it while other already speculated upon the F16. For myself speaking I have no idea but F16 seems to be out of the question likely. Pilot training takes a lot of time...

On top of that another Russian navy ship kaput. The name is so horrible to me that I had to write it down, it's the Novotsjerkassk. Reports varied from "Damaged with one person dead" to "Almost completely vaporized".  

Anyway it was a big boom.  


Lets go to the next item. 

  Item 2) Tiny bit of math and an old horrible video on spin stuff.

I made another parametrization from that ellipse you saw around coming here lately. This ellipse goes through all powers of i where the multiplication now is ruled by i^2 = -1 + i

This ellipse is the complex exponential for this kind of a complex plane. I think it's a cute complex plane because you now have i^3 = -1. 

Anyway in the last post on the other website we took that beautiful function named the logarithm from our imaginary unit i and as such we got a number named tau. You might say so what? But if you just like me crazy enough you need this number to find those parametrizations. 

By the way, most people who had a bit of math have some rudimentary understanding of what a parametrization is. Some math expression depends on some number named a parameter, as such I do not like it very much to name the stuff below a parametrization. It is more a 'cover in time' but nobody uses that so lets use the word parametrization. 


This parametrization should be the same as given last week, but I was to lazy to prove it. And also I didn't have time for that. But it should be the same. At last I want to remark the above parametrization has period two pi while the one from last week has period six. If you want to prove for yourself these two parametrizations are the same, of course you must adjust the stuff to having the same period... 


Electron time! I found an old video from 8 years back and it contains a few fantasies upon magnons and spin waves. I selected the video because it is so breathtaking stupid: They want to send so called spin waves through an insulator. 

Now why is that so very stupid?

Well in my world the spin of the electron is not spin but monopole magnetic charge. As such there is a 'spin current' if in a particular direction more north pole electrons move as the south pole electrons. 

Physics professors say there is no spin current in say a copper wire if both spin up and spin down electrons travel in the same direction. And they never say it explicitly but if they talk about spin current they always mean a net effect.  

So they understand something is going on here, in their world or mind the electrons are tiny magnets that just happen to point their magnetic axis into a particular direction the name 'up' or 'down'. For them it is one of the mysteries of quantum physics: It's a vector but it can point only up or down.

These people are crazy not even realizing there is just no experimental proof anywhere that says electrons are indeed tiny (bipolar) magnets. These people are crazy because they don't see or talk about this heap on illogical nonsense like electron pairs must have opposite spins.

Talking out of their necks is the main way to pass the time over there...

(22 Dec 2023) We had a storm named Pia over here but it did not do much damage. In Prague they had a crazy shootout at a university with something like over 15 people dead. The details from Prague are a bit strange, it was done by a student that did not seem to have any trouble... So it was a weird day when it came to the news.

Item 1) Over 80 thousand Russian soldiers in the Bakhmut area? Why?
Item 2) New math post & Don Lincoln talking out of this neck.

 Item 1) Over 80 thousand Russian soldiers in the Bakhmut area? Why?

The channel Reporting From Ukraine reported that someone else has reported that there were about 80 thousand Russian troops in the neighborhood of Bakhmut. The Wagner folks were also back so they are now more or less integrated into the Russian army. 

I have no idea how reliable this information is all in all but as the video says 80 thousand is about double the 40 thousand from the Avdiivka (or how you spell that name) region. If the information is more or less correct it is likely the Russians are planning more offensives in this winter.

 Item 2) New math post & Don Lincoln talking out of this neck.

The latest math post is about finding the logarithm of an imaginary unit named i. But the way the multiplication now works is a bit different, again I used that i^2 = -1 + i way of multiplying numbers from the plane. 

In math the logarithm, say log(x), has the feature that it's derivative equals 1/x. You can also use that the other way around: If you don't have any idea what the log is, you can always try to integrate the inverse. 

That's basically what I am doing in the new post and for that you also need to find the inverse of such complex numbers. And I was pleased we had to divide by the determinant making once more chopped meat of the belief that math professors have it is all about norms.

In itself the new post is not very important because there are also other ways to find the logarithm. It's importance lies in the fact you can integrate on such spaces like that where the multiplication is clearly different from the good old complex plane.   

So if you are interested in math like that, click on the picture to land at the new post on the other website:

Electron time! If you like me think that electrons are magnetic monopoles and not tiny (bipolar) magnets, in that case how do permanent magnets work? One way of making permanent magnets goes as follows, let use iron: 

A piece of iron is heated above the Curie temperature. A strong magnetic field is applied and very slowly the iron is cooled. After that the magnet is ready for use, may be a bit of sanding, polishing are painting and it's ready.

Why does it work? Well iron has four unpaired electrons in it's inner shells. The Curie temperature is so high that these electrons come slammed loosed from all that thermal energy. The magnetic field ensures that the monopole electrons get separated and when it all cools down the electrons land in their inner electron orbitals. (If I remember it correctly it were the d-orbitals).

So that is why permanent magnets are permanent: the electrons have a permanent monopole magnetic charge, their spins cannot flip, and now there are more north-pole charged electrons in the north pole. And vice verse for the south pole.

This also means that if you have a machine that can make permanent magnets, if the direction of the applied magnetic field is say from the left to the right. In that case the permanent magnet should have it's magnetism from the right to the left...
For years and years I am looking for this detail to be validated, but people don't speak much about a technical thing like making permanent magnets...


Ok, lets fly Don Lincoln from Fermilabs into this homepage: Don Lincoln is clearly a guy that likes it to hear to his own voice speaking. Well that is not illegal or so but he clearly is a shallow thinker never realizing there are all kinds of deep deep problems and inconsistencies with viewing electrons as tiny magnets.

I selected the next screen shot because it also contained so called magnetic domains that are found in magnetic metals. Back in Feb 2017 during one day of deep thinking related to a problem from IBM with nano wires I was standing outside and found the likely answor: Magnetic domains domains have a surplus of one the the two kinds of electrons. And the domain walls are actively keeping these magnetic charges separated.

Well Feb 2017 is over 6 years ago and people like Don Lincoln just keep on talking out of their overpaid but silly necks. Likely at Fermilab they have one of those so called Kerr microscopes. With a Kerr microscope you can see the magnetic domains of a material like iron and observe how it changes when you apply a magnetic field.

Of course they never do that because these people live in a world where all things magnetic has to be explained via tiny magnets, Gauss his law for magnetism or whatever what. They live in their world and I live in mine and after so many years I am no longer interested in serious communication or so.

This Lincoln guy even does not have his domains correctly: This kind of configuration he shows cannot exist if adjacent domains always must have opposite spins. 

I think this is a good example how all this shallow thinking works in practice. The words as spoken by the Don sound good but if you think a bit longer there is all that crap and all these inconsistencies. Inconsistencies like the electron pair must have opposite spins, people like Don Lincoln buy all that crap with a happy smile...

(20 Dec 2023) In my own country the first thunder strikes of our future government are heard: We all get cheaper health care and that is paid for by an extra tax on the banks... As far as I know now, this 'cheaper' health care costs 6 billion € where the new bank tax will bring in 150 million or so?

My estimate is it is going to be a disaster, this new government if it goes through will be a bunch of weird and dumb people driving our government debt up fast & furious. Well that is what the Dutch people voted for I just guess...

But for the rest of this world: May be the next few years you have to count the Dutch out. Instead of a careful kind of thinking you will get cheap populism, stupid slogans and no serious stuff anyway...

Two items for today:  

Item 1) BBC docu: They call us meat.
Item 2) Two cute integrals for a number named tau.

 Item 1) BBC docu: They call us meat.

Oh shit I was thinking there was a vote on UA aid in the USA this week. But that's likely not the case since just a few hours before writing this we had a Reuters report saying: 

White House plans one more Ukraine aid package, then up to Congress
Link used:

A few times I observed US republicans demanding there would be a strategy delivered that apparently was not done by the White House all this time... Well as my little corner of the world is concerned the long term thing is to degrade the Russian military to the point where it cannot do to another European nation what they are now doing to Ukraine.  

And why don't the US republicans enjoy the daily tactical news of just another 1000 dead Russian soldiers? Have they gone crazy or so?

Well likely with Christmas impending, somewhere next year the vote will take place. So lets wait and see what it will be. 


The BBC had an interesting video out were they try to investigate what happened to some Russian elite marines. That is a lot of work of course but as so often a lot of them got killed.  

Last week I showed you that US estimate where 87% of the size of the initial invading forces. I do not know how long they measured 'initial invading forces' but total wiped out was over 300 thousand Russians. 

But with numbers like that the memory falls out of your organization like we have here the Russian army. If everybody with a little bit experience is dead or wounded and there's only new recruits left, you basically have an army with limited memory.  

The next link is the short version, I did not see it but there is also a version of about one hour. Just look it up if you are interested in the beautiful life of Russian soldiers and their romantic dead or wounded end. Click on the picture for the video:

And if you think about those hundreds and hundreds of dear Russian corpses covering the Ukrainian landscape, all that meat... I admire the Russians that they care so much about Ukrainian wildlife, after all in the cold winter meat eating animals must have something to eat or not? And when the beautiful Ukrainian spring arrives, the flies must have some place to put their eggs in. It is all so romantic: Russians feeding Ukraine wildlife and helping Ukraine flies with having a happy life...

May be we should go to the next item: 

 Item 2) Two cute integrals for a number named tau.

Lets first recap how we arrived in all that math in the plane with elliptical and hyperbolic multiplications. Well this year I started developing so called general theory so that you can make complex numbers in any dimension.
In itself such general theory is much more boring but it was still funny for me to write it down. As such I wrote the second post on general theory:

General theory Part 2: On a matrix named big E

That was on 13 Oct so just over two months back. After that I wrote one more post in the general stuff. In the big E post I simply said that you could experiment with it for yourself and try if you can find some complex analysis. 

I realized that of course this would be a total disaster if left to the professional math professors. So that is why I came up with that two dimensional multiplication that I named the "Golden ratio multiplication" where the imaginary unit behaved like i^2 = 1 + i.

In my view this was something math professors could understand: Two dimensional numbers 'just like' the complex plane they know. After 30 years I can safely conclude that the 3D numbers just don't fall in any good earth over there in the world of professional math professors.

So that's why I am doing this lately and of course it is also fun to do. After all me looking at Diophantine equations is like a Russian soldier saying Vodka is disgusting...;)

Well Diophantine equations are nice but the numbers tau are nicer. It's a bit more hardcore because you must be able to find the logarithm of an imaginary unit. In the two dimensional plane we only have one of those imaginary units namely i and it is always a pleasure to solve that kind of logarithmic puzzle. 

These are what I always name the numbers tau, it's the logarithm of some imaginary unit. Anyway the next post on the other website is about finding such a number tau when you use the multiplication ruled by i^2 = -1 + i


Yeah yeah, it is often hard math work to find such a number tau. For example it is hard to find the values of such integrals as above and in the case of two dimensions they are now as simple as possible! 

Sometime this week I can hang the new post in the other website. 

That was it for this update, thanks for your attention. 


(15 Dec 2023) Sometimes politics go slow and sometimes they go fast. In my own parliament there was voted on going through with financial and military aid to Ukraine. And this evening I read that UA can start getting into the EU? I did'n read the details so I won't comment...;)

Anyway it is late so here are the two items for this update:  

Item 1) Estimated Russian losses & a bit politics stuff.
Item 2) Pete Judo on six ways scientists fake their data.

 Item 1) Estimated Russian losses & a bit politics stuff.

It is an estimate from the US about the overall losses of the Russian military forces since the begin of the war in Ukraine. It stands at about 87% of the size of the initial invading forces. That is a staggering number, over 300 thousand dead & wounded.
Article from Forbes (may be you hit a paywall):

Another development came from across the ocean: Already next week US lawmakers will come together to vote on the UA funding (and of course the other issues there are). Click on the picture for the Reuters report: 



Title Reuter report: US Senate to vote on Ukraine funding, border security next week.

So all in all it could be far worse but as they say in the US that you must wait for some fat lady that starts singing. Why this is I don't know, but it is a funny saying. Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Pete Judo on six ways scientists fake their data.

No electron rant today and no math either. I found a funny video from Pete Judo, a lovely name by the way, where he describes a bit how it goes with our tax payer money. 

Well science is in large part also a very social endeavor and of course it has to be. Without internal communication it is hard to find global goals of research. And that has it's own drawbacks like we see in the use of phrases like "Publish or Perish" wisdom.  

And the way present scientific publishing works does not help very much. There is always that tendency to go for sensational claims and most non-results will absolutely not get published.  

In how far does this play a role in math & physics? I mean the 'faking the data' kind of thing. I think in math it is not a big problem, fake data will not help when you are crafting pure math. In the math science it is more a lack of imagination that is problematic to the speed of new discoveries. The problem is not that math professors publish fake math theorems... 

In physics of course it gets a bit more sloppy. Just like Pete said: You have these outliers in your data set and you throw these outliers out of your data set because if you include them you do not have a significant results.

And what about the cute practice of p-hacking? You simply start collecting data until you have a significant low p-value and after that you stop collecting data? Do you think in a data hungry science like physics this never happens?

Of course it will be, after all science is an interesting form of social behavior. I combined the screenshot from Pete with the Aurora Borealis that as far as I know is not a fake. No the Aurora Borealis is not a fake because the solar electrons slam in so hard because they are fucking stupid magnetic monopoles!

Oh, oops, I said this item was not about electron spin rants...

(13 Dec 2023) Normally when we are out of electricity here for 10 minutes in a year, that year is promoted to the hall of shame. But today it went on for hours and hours and it was just a local problem. Lately we got new electricity cables and one of them broke. That's why it took so long: the workers had to dig and repair the stuff. And with electricity you just cannot haste that kind of stuff. So I did not view much news today... 

Item 1) Zelensky meets the Viktor in Argentine.
Item 2) New post, a bit of math and Intel's Tunnel Falls spin qubit chip.

 Item 1) Zelensky meets the Viktor in Argentine.

Oh oh Argentine has a new prez, lets hope it won't be a disaster. He wants to get rid of the Argentine peso and replace it with the dollar. Well Argentine's financial and economical problems are wide and deep, lets not go into that.

If it wasn't all that serious the next photo would be hilarious. Zelensky talking to the Viktor. Well may be there is a way to work around the problems and free up the funds that Ukraine needs. On the other hand, a veto is a veto and individual EU member states just have that right. With all that politics in place it is hard to estimate what will happen.

 Item 2) New post, a bit of math and Intel's Tunnel Falls spin qubit chip.

Over on the other website I finally posted something about magnetism again. I could not do that for a long time because the number of posts upon magnetism would be greater as the number of posts on 3D complex numbers. 

We can't have that of course therefore in the last few months everything magnetic was updated over here on this website. The latest post is basically what I wrote last week upon those experiments that violate the so called Bell inequality. In my view where electrons carry a monopole magnetic charge it is impossible for an electron to be in a superposition of spin states.
And that is where likely all those experiments go wrong: They always start with an electron that supposedly is into such a super position (a Bell state, a so called maximum entangled quantum state). After that they perform measurements on the photons that are produced by those electrons. 

Well I don't buy all that crap like "When we measure the spin state of an electron here, an entangled electron in another galaxy will instantly flip into the other spin state. Don't forget these people do not even have basic experimental proof that the electron is a bipolar magnet. On top of that no one has a problem with that. But they are very good in talking out of their neck when it comes to electron spin... Here is the link: 

Where do all those experiments for the Bell test go wrong?


I found a perfect so called parametrization for the ellipse that is defined by the determinant being one when you use the complex plane ruled by i^2 = -1 + i instead of the usual way of just i^2 = -1

I managed to use just two coordinate functions just like the good old Euler did when crafting the e^it = cos t + i sin t. To be honest I was a little bit proud on myself (don't worry it lasted only a few micro seconds) and for sure this was a very lucky shot.

In the picture below you see two graphs, the red is the ellipse and the blue is an expression when I fill in the two cosines in the determinant. That gives 0.75 or 3/4. That is why you must blow up the red graph by a factor of the square root out of 4/3 so that the determinant becomes one.  

I can't use it in the next post because that is about calculating the number tau for this kind of complex plane. Yes I said I will leave out all complicated stuff like the numbers tau, but one is allowed I guess. 


In order to let the parametrization start in the number 1 I had to replace the time variable t by t + 0.5. That is why I choose the time interval to be from 0 to 5.5 so you can see it now starts in the number 1.

It was very funny to do: Just two cosines to cover an ellipse. Most math professors need more complicated looking stuff although the + 0.5 in my stuff also looks a bit complicated. Lets go to the last detail in the item 2)


Intel's Tunnel Falls 12 spin qubit quantum chip.

Somewhere this Summer I showed you a video from NYU where a bunch of people discuss this new quantum chip. Since the TU Delft has a working relation with Intel when it comes to quantum chips it was reasonable at the time to estimate that also the TU Delft people would get one of those quantum chips...

Well the Intel product has 12 qubits based on electron spin. And in my world that means they have 12 isolated electrons that just cannot flip their spin in a billion years of time.

As such this device is totally garbage and until now I still don't have any reports on this from the TU Delft people. That was what I expected this Summer and now we are almost at the end of this year 2023 it seems to be coming out...

Here is how the stuff is promoted and the little arrows are supposed to be the spins of the electrons. Click on the picture to see the exiting Intel promotional video:

So nothing reported from the TU Delft weirdo's. What will likely happen in the future? Well if there will come out any news it will be that it does not work and they need more funding. They will need more funding to fight climate change or whatever crap the quantum computers will do for the benefit of humanity.

Don't forget these weirdo's have zero point zero experimental proof that electrons are indeed tiny magnets.

Lets leave it with that and let me upload this to humanities biggest garbage can: The internet. Thanks for your attention. 



(08 Dec 2023) So luckily I can type again, I had a nasty gout attack in one of my wrists and that is no fun. Gout is a relatively stupid illness, one of those old age illnesses. And because of that humans never got selected on that, you only get gout when you don't get kids anymore so there is no way of better genes entering the population... 

But enough on my health, likely you have fallen already asleep! So the two items for today are: 

Item 1) More diplomatic troubles & the railroad attacks from last week.
Item 2) On the TU Delft loophole free Bell test, the 24 Aug 2015 paper.

 Item 1) More diplomatic troubles & the railroad attacks from last week.

Bah more political troubles, the US Senate voted 49 to 51 against aid for Ukraine. And also aid for Israel so that is very very strange, US republicans against aid for Israel? Anyway over there the whole thing is entangled with funding the border in some attempt to fight illegal immigration.
These things have nothing to do with each other, but hey it is politics so everything goes...

In the EU a similar sized set back, Hungary veto's the aid package for Ukraine. It is what it is, but it is not a welcome development of course. 

Last week there was a nice strategic benefit for Ukraine when they managed to put a bomb on a train going through a tunnel to China. There seems to be one other railway to China in that part of the Russian landscape and that was also bombed via the method of loading a bomb on board of those trains.

The tunnel blast was interesting because that train had all kinds of fuel on board and such fires in tunnels like that take a long time to repair. Now this was an attack done on Russian soil, may be it is even possible to place future bombs on trains coming from China itself. I think that is allowed because China facilitates the transfer of those one million artillery shells delivered by North Korea. Sometimes you actions have consequences my dear Chinese... 

Anyway today the Pioneer had a video out on that attack. That Pioneer channel has always video titles that are a bit over the top. Over the top or not, the only thing that matters is of course that the information offered is as close to what really happened as possible. Click on the picture to land at the video:

I remember that years back I downloaded that pdf from TU Delft as found on the preprint archive. At the time I was just getting started with looking into that detail of electrons being tiny magnets. As such I did read a lot of that stuff as published by the TU Delft and of course many more sources. 

Only this year I found a marketing like slogan that sums it nicely up: 

The magnetic properties of the electron are just like their electric properties: Permanent and monopole.

The physics professors have very different idea's about that: Based on an experiment done in the 1300-dreds where a magnet was cut in two pieces, they believe that magnetic monopoles do not exist. As such even today they believe that electrons are tiny magnets and for some strange reason cannot figure out for themselves that this is a very problematic assumption.

Now back in the year 2015 I really tried to read that pdf from TU Delft, but it was so hard to understand. For example they have an electron prepared in a Bell state and entangle a photon with that.
What the hell does that mean? I often had no clue but today I know what Bell states are and how Delft people 'entangle' a photon with an electron spin state: They just fire a laser at the electron and all photons produced in this way are entangled with the electron they say...

Well I say the magnetic charge of electrons is simply permanent and as such it is one hundred % impossible that an individual electron is in a super position of the two magnetic states there are. And it's fucking impossible to bring two electrons in a so called Bell state.   

Last year in 2022 there were even Nobel prizes handed out to the folks who for the first time did such experiments. Mr. Aspect was one of those and he remarked that it is very very hard to do such experiments with the electrons themselves and that's why they use photons.

As far as I know all those experiments have the assumption that you start with an electron that is in a superposition of the two magnetic states. Since in my view this is impossible because the electron charge is permanent and non-flipable, this is more a social experiment and has not much to do with science.

Physics and also math professors mostly do social things. They try very hard to get publications into so called 'high impact' scientific journals. They try to get as high as possible on all kinds of citation and quotation indices. As I say it: They only try to score social coins. And in the meantime they do not much science anymore although I have to admit it is very hard to define what science precisely is. May be it is better to keep such definitions of science as vague as possible so that science is more or less like porn:

It is hard to define but when you see it, you recognize it.

So that is what I think of all those Bell experiments: The basic assumption that electrons can be in a super position of the two magnetic states is bull shit done by folks that try to score social coins and admiration from their peers.   

I also found a video, that is why I am writing this update because it is a nice video with music and it abundantly shows that physics professors keep on thinking that electrons can be in a super position of spin states.

At last I want to remark that I absolutely no longer try to talk to physics professors using logic. No they live in their world, I live in mine. And I would like to keep those worlds separated. 
Lets say: These worlds cannot get entangled via magnetic field lines because I want to keep my world free from garbage and pollution. 

That was the update for today, think well and work well. 


(06 Dec 2023) The last days it emerged that during a small row between the UK and the EU over COVID vaccines Boris Johnson had his military and spy agencies making plans to invade our country and get those vaccines... Yes that is what you get if you vote a bunch of low IQ ideologues into power.
The BoJo government did wonderful stuff during the COVID crises like ordering infected people into care homes. No, not in a few selected care homes where all things COVID were concentrated. Just send them to care homes... So the Dutch can ponder if it is wise to have our local weirdo Geert Wilders as the next pm or as we name it: the premier. 

In an unrelated but hilarious BoJo detail, after a local car crash the police found the next id that is, believe it or not, valid till the year 3000: 


Two items for the update for today: 

Item 1) Artur Rehi on our Geert & DW on the USA funds for UA.
Item 2) A bit of math & perfect 'talking out of their necks' observed.

Item 1) Artur Rehi on our Geert & DW on the USA funds for UA.

To my surprise when looking at one of Artur his video's our own Geert Wilders came along! Now in the previous years I always avoided reading news on our Geert because he is such a dumb man. So I didn't know it that Geert has visited Russia not that long after the MH-17 detail. 

So I did not use screenshots from the video from Artur, after all deep fakes are getting better and better. Therefore I just looked it up on some image searches and yes there it is: Geert visiting Russia!

Now is our Geert also funded by Russia? I don't know and that is more a case for the Dutch secret services but it could explain as why he wants to stop military aid to Ukraine. Another explanation could of course be he is so fucking stupid but sometimes with folks like our Geert money talks. 

As always click on the picture to land at the video from Arur Rehi: 


Video title: Ukrainians Exploded Deep into Russian Rear Areas

Deutsche Well had a short video on all that funding stuff in the USA now they have a new House speaker. If memory serves it contains about 60 billion US$ for Ukraine. As a comparison our country raised it's UA budget by 2 billion € for the fiscal year 20024, I don't know what the total is. Say 4 billion (may be 6 billion, I just don't know). 

The US population size is about 20 times our Dutch population size, so if the 4 billion € is more or less correct, sizing it up to USA population size would give about 80 billion €.

That's all very interesting but the big problem is not comparing the size of help for Ukraine, the problem is we do not have much military gear. It is vital that the USA help can go through but instead of just do your work it all becomes a bit politicized.

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) A bit of math & perfect 'talking out of their necks' observed.

There is a very weird way of crafting a new complex plane if you replace the way the complex plane is usually ruled (that's i^2 = -1) by the new rule
i^2 = -1 + 2i.  

In that case the complex exponential (yes that's the e^it thing from Euler) now become straight lines. And powers of the new imaginary unit i now hop over that line, see below. I only showed a few positive powers of i but powers of the inverse i^-1 hop into the other direction. 

Somewhere on the internet I came across a person that showed the simple linear transformation that does the trick into hopping over all integer points. So my estimation was that he or she has done it before because after all it is kind of weird to describe it as a linear transformation when you look for integers points on the line y = -x + 1.
So this person has likely done it on some ellipses and may be some hyperbola because otherwise you would not formulate it this way. Of course the linear transformation he or she found was the same as multiplying points by i if you use the new rule of i^2 = -1 + 2i. I was glad not everybody on this planet is totally braindead.

In the picture below in the upper half I show you three examples of how you can multiply complex numbers. It makes a transition where the complex exponentials are ellipses to where they are hyperbola. And in between you get a straight line, it's not very important I think but is sure is cute.

In the lower half I placed some powers of i using that new rule or if you want on that particular complex plane:  


Electron time! A few days back I had nothing to do and just for fun I did a search on on the phrase: "Proof that electrons are tiny magnets". Of course there exists no such proof or experiment, it is just something that is commonly believed without any question.

Now often I wonder why the physics professors do not see for themselves that viewing electrons as tiny magnets bring a boatload of weird and crazy stuff with it. For example electron spins must have an anti-aligment in them because the Pauli principle says they must have different spin quantum numbers...

But anti-alignment simply means they now must bond via north pole against north pole so you have to throw overboard the principle that all magnets large or tiny must have opposite poles in order to bind.

Often the weirdo's from physics and even chemistry 'explain' it by saying that if the electrons combine in an anti-alignment manner, in that way they are magnetically neural. In itself this might be true but why would electrons do that? Well the weirdo's never explain that detail. 

Now my search on did of course not give any result when it comes to proving that electrons are tiny magnets. But the very first thing that popped up was from Cornell University and more stupid as this is hard to find. The spins combine "up" and "down", that is the anti-alignment part, and they compare that to "like two bar magnets with opposite poles together".

I am not making this up, this is what university people dot: They just talk out of their necks.  


Instead of remarking that anti-alignment in electron pairs is one of the weird weird things in quantum physics, they just talk out of their necks once more by comparing it to two aligned bar magnets... 

By the way; didn't Albert Einstein once remark that in this world only two things are of infinite size: The universe and the dumbness of people. And he was strikingly correct, after all Einstein himself never understood that it is impossible for electrons to be tiny magnets. 

So lets leave it with that and I will try to upload this update to the biggest garbage can humanity has: the internet. 

Thanks for your attention, thanks for not falling asleep and may be in the next elections thanks for not voting idiots into power. I don't mind what you vote, just don't vote idiots into power... 


(01 Dec 2023) There is indeed some weird stuff going on with tankers from Greece transporting Russian oil. It seems they don't abide by the 60$ price cap and we can't have that of course. See from the business insider:
Greek oil tankers are avoiding Russia after getting a stern letter from the US. I found no further information on the rumor that Greece also sold old oil tankers to Russia, these were old tankers designated for scrapping them. But if Russia expands their tanker fleet that way that is very unhelpful.
I do not know if those rumors bear any truth and I do not want to make false accusations but if true we can't have stuff like that... 

After having said that, two items for today: 

Item 1) Latest Ramstein meeting and a new air defense coalition for UA.
Item 2) Advertisement for the latest math post.

  Item 1) Latest Ramstein meeting and a new air defense coalition for UA.

Last week there was a new round of Ramstein meetings, it was the 17-th already if I remember it correctly. Of course there are plenty of problems like that lack of shell for artillery and all kinds of stuff known or unknown. 


But there was a new air defense coalition formed under leadership of Germany and France. That is a good thing because it's not only good for Ukraine but we Europeans too have to master the art of air defense much more in the present time of drone warfare. 

I didn't look up the details but Germany has also anti air stuff with big machine guns and the whole thing seems to be laser guided. You understand why I consider that interesting: there goes a ton of math into such systems... 

Beside that the US Patroits are very good but you can't just use them for drones, that is not an efficient way of using them. Patriots must do the big rocket stuff that Russia fires, in particular getting better and better at taking out those superfast hypersonic missiles. Those hypersonic things also have a nuclear capability so all in all it is important to learn how to shoot them down before they reach their target. 

Anyway Germany also has a giant 60 billion € in her budget so lets hope they can solve that. (A German judge activated the so called "Schulden Bremse" and yes if that is a law over there indeed there is a big problem...)

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) Advertisement for the latest math post.

Last Monday I posted the latest math post, it is about 2D multiplications so ways of multiplying two numbers in a plane. It's all very simple I left all more complicated stuff like the numbers tau out. First that basics and they are already very promising.  

To focus the mind, hopefully you know that the complex plane is ruled by an imaginary number i and it's square is given by: i^2 = -1. If you replace that rule by say i^2 = -1 + i you get a ton of interesting features.

You might wonder why the professional math professors don't do stuff like that. Well if you would do that as a math professor, that is bad for your career and likely you won't get anything published. Beside that it might very well be there is just no (expensive) math journal for such investigations.
Well it is what it is, math professors are just as weird as the physics professors with their incoherent ramblings on electron spin.

But it has all kinds of interesting math features, for example below you can see a number i^3 = -3 + 8i. Now in the world of the overpaid math professors if you would calculate the inverse of this number unavoidable you are getting fractions in your answer.

Yet in the plane ruled by i^2 = -1 + 3i your complex exponential is a hyperbole and all powers of i have an inverse without any fractions. It all has it's own logic but hey try to explain that to the math professors...


To be honest if you would have told me five years back that in the year 2023 I would seriously consider studying so called Diophantine equations in the plane I would tell you that you are mentally ill. Diophantine equations are mostly just equations with solution but the Diophantine means you want integer solutions to these equations.

May be you have heard of Pythagorean triples like 3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2. That in itself is a very Diophantine kind of problem because you want integers that do the thing.

If you have a Pythagorean triple like above all of a sudden there are more solutions to an equation as x^2 + y^2 = 5 compared to x^2 + y^2 = 4. Instead of 4 there are now 8 solutions.

Now my new found complex planes have all kinds of stuff that is very similar to idea's like that. For example if you use the rule i^2 = -1 + i all powers of i do lie on an ellipse and often there are six solutions to that.

Those six solutions rotate if you multiply them by the i that rules this particular kind of multiplying 2D numbers. But like expected, sometimes there are more solutions like in the next picture: 


There are now 12 solutions falling into two different groups of each 6 integer solutions.

It's all cute math stuff and may be I should post the link to it:

Ok let's not get confused about math or physics of overpaid professors! It is better to KEEP ON KILLING THOSE FUCKING RUSSIANS! 

After speaking such words of peace, let me try to upload this to the internet.
As always thanks for your attention and see you in a new update. 


(29 Nov 2023) No intro talk on Greece oil tankers sold to Russia, just two items for this day's update: 

Item 1) Our weird Geert & interesting UA sniper records.
Item 2) Einstein de Haas effect; talking our of their necks again?

 Item 1) Our weird Geert & interesting UA sniper records.

Oh oh I would never think I would voluntary look at some videos with our weird Geert talking. Well he has not changed and he still wants a Nexit because for example of (illegal) immigration. 

Well look at the UK how that one goes since their Brexit: They now have record numbers of immigrants but now they cannot send back illegal immigrants to the country they first landed in. And why? Well they are no longer part of the EU. 

This idiot, Geert, will only make those problems worse if he gets his way... 

Every body can look up statistics, say economical statistics from the UK and see for yourself how good that Brexit is for their economy. Not much. So why does Geert not do such stuff? Well like said before; he is just to fucking stupid to understand such statistics. 

A Nexit will do miracles for our agriculture exports; if every plant or animal item has to be inspected by a veterinarian and specialists in plant diseases, that will hurt our economy very bad.  

But again if you ask Geert you only get weird emotional stuff and just never ever anything that is logical. The guy is a walking disaster. 


From Ukraine I only have a small but very interesting detail. It's about sniper stuff, those long distance shooters. I myself was not very good at shooting, I just could not suppress my reflex of closing my eyes after pulling the trigger so I could never see where the bullet did slam in.
But in itself the sniper stuff is an art or a science in itself. There goes a whole lot of stuff into being a good sniper or marksman.   

The distances claimed by the Ukrainians are a huge improvement over long standing records. If it's all correct, my compliments! An interesting feature is that they produce these kind of long distance rifles themselves. That is a good thing of course. US defense news had a video out recently, as always click on the picture to land at the video:

Lets go to the next item: 

 Item 2) Einstein de Haas effect; talking our of their necks again?

Often I wonder as why the physics people for themselves never see all those problems you have when you view electrons as tiny magnets. When it comes to explaining all kinds of problems they come up with all kinds of explanations that in itself often sound logical.
But if you lay these kind of explanations next to each other, it is not very consistent. It's often completely contrary, the stuff just does not add up.

For example in the Stern-Gerlach experiment the splitting into two streams of silver atoms is explained by the probabilistic behavior of electrons: With a probability of 50% the spin will point up and also 50% of pointing down.

Ok, this sounds reasonable and if you like almost 100% of physics people not capable of doing the math to calculate that 'tiny electron magnets' just can't explain this, you might believe in that crap explanation.

Now a few weeks back I came across the Einstein de Haas effect. The effect is that an iron cylinder starts rotating when you flip on the magnetic field. (It is caused by a changing or alternating magnetic field, see the video below.) And how do they explain that? 

Well if 50% of electrons would flip to spin up and the other 50% would flip to spin down, in that case the cylinder would never start to rotate...
But the physics people are very very good in talking out of their neck and as such one 100% percent of electrons flip their spin either up or down.
Now the underlying explanation is 'conservation of angular momentum'. 

And as such the whole principle of the electron spin state as being probabilistic is thrown overboard and 0% of the physics community say this is crazy. 

Well they live in their world and I live in mine and in my world the electrons are the long sought magnetic monopoles. The magnetic properties of the electrons are just as their electric properties:


So all that stuff of electrons flipping their spin is bull shit as told by people that are 'locally smart' in the sense they can 'explain' one experiment. But they just don't have oversight of how all those different experiments must also have a so called 'global explanation'. And that is my monopole stuff... 

But try to explain that to your local physics professors...

Anyway it is late over here so let me try and upload this stuff. The video is a bit boring if you are not into physics but if you want to see it just click on the picture below:

Well that was it for this update. Thanks for your attention and ask your local physics professor why they are crazy...;)


(24 Nov 2023) Oh oh, that were some weird elections! The PVV of Geert Wilders became the greatest party and as such we run the risk of Geert as the next pm. If that happens the Dutch population can learn it is not that smart to have a dumbass pm.

For example our Geert would love to have a Nexit, he would like to leave the EU just like the Brits did. So why would he be in favor of that? Well one of the reasons is that Geert is a relative dumb person. He is too stupid to understand all the negative economical effects it will have, just like the Brexiteers were on average to dumb to understand such complicated stuff.

What is good about Geert Wilders? Well he has a healthy motoric system so he can walk and move and so. And, very important, like a lot of politicians he has a well developed speech center in his brain. As such a lot of voters seem to think he also has a good cognition, but sorry that is not the case. All his stuff is never thought through, most of the time it just an emotional eruption like his explanation of why they won the elections:

"De mensen zijn er spuugzat van!" Translated that would be something like "The people are spit saturated by it". So nothing of any form of analysis, only one more emotional and stupid thing that explains just nothing.

Well we will have an interesting future over here, hopefully it will go down more or less like the fantastic government of Liz Truss. That's also a weird ideologue with little cognitive capabilities.  

Well we'll see, lets go to our items of today: 

Item 1) It took Russians 40 days to capture this post, why?
Item 2) More math & An applause for the chemistry guy Three TwentySix!

  Item 1) It took Russians 40 days to capture this post, why?

The channel Reporting from Ukraine had a hilarious video out about a remote controlled machine gun. That machine gun kept away the Russians for 40 days from the gun nest it was in. It's totally hilarious, the Russians tried all kinds of things like lots of artillery and even air power but the stupid machine gun refused to die...;)

My dear Ukrainians I have no idea about how the elections over here will influence the aid to Ukraine. Likely the F16 stuff will go through but if you have an idiot as pm it is hard to say what will happen. Plans were also to add an additional 2 billion € to next year's budget for Ukraine, lets hope that won't get derailed by weird political forces.  

It is what it is, there is no rolling back these elections. Anyway as always click on the picture to land at the video: 


Video title: 22 Nov: WOW. Ukrainians UNLEASH ROBOTS-MACHINE GUNS Link used:

Likely at night (Russians don't have night vision goggles) the Ukrainians replaced the electricity and fed the brave machine gun fresh ammo. I hope they also talked to the machine gun and said that he was a good boy. 

But serious, how much Russians were shot dead by this gun? I have no idea but if it kept the Russians at bay for 40 days it must have been a lot. 

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) More math & An applause for the chemistry guy Three TwentySix!

The complex plane is defined by the imaginary unit i and most people know that i^2 = -1. Powers of i lie on the unit cirle, that is the so called complex exponential or that Euler thing that says e^it = cos(t) + i* sin(t).

You can very easy make all kinds of variants of this complex plane by changing the behavior of the imaginary unit i. I changed it to the next rule:

i^2 = -1 + 3i. 

It's just an example but if you now take successive powers of i, they all lie on the integer points of a hyperbola. This hyperbola is the set of points that have a determinant of one and as such they form a group. If you multiply any two points on that hyperbola, the result always lies on that hyperbola again.

You can check for yourself that indeed i^3 = -3 + 8i and if you want you can use the good desmos graphing package from the internet to plot the graph and check all other powers of i do lie indeed on this graph.

Math professors never use these kind of simple and easy changes to the way a multiplication works. They only use the complex plane and those 4D numbers known as the quaternions. Why this is I don't know, it is one of the forms that they use to keep each other stupid I just guess...


Electron time! A small but significant detail was observed: For the very first time in the nine years that I doubt that electrons are tiny magnets, there is this chemistry guy Three TwentySix that wonders why there are only electron pairs. 

That is worth a standing ovation for say 10 minutes long!

It proves that not everybody is braindead on this planet, there is one guy that wonders why there are only electron pairs. It is a true miracle, a non brain dead person talking about electron spin...

Ok ok there are also lone electrons often named unpaired electrons but if all that "electrons are tiny magnets" bullshit was true, then why in the whole of chemistry are there never ever more as two electrons combined?

The very smart non braindead guy Three TwentySix does not jump to the right conclusion: electrons are not tiny magnets but magnetic monopoles. But that does not matter, he is the very first person in nine years time that actually understands there is a weird problem here.

The video is about atomic orbitals and if you do not know much about those orbitals this video is a very good introduction. In the fourteenth minute it is where he doubts a bit of how this all is supposed to work: electron pairs are two electrons that are anti aligned and that is what the weirdo's of quantum physics have made from it. So if you are interested as always click on the picture to land at the video:

It is also known as the Euler identity, Euler's formulae etc etc. 


In the last 2.65 years I found 10 more of these circles & periodic curves in higher dimensional complex number systems. 
I made a 25 page pdf from it.

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...

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.


A pdf file explaining why we likely never ever will have nuclear fusion as a reliable source of unlimited energy...  



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...
