-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

(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:

Lets go to our next item. 

 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...
I want to say that it's a brave decision done by Denmark, so thumbs up for Denmark. Click on the picture to land at the UATV video: 

Video title: Artillery from Denmark and F-16s from Netherlands - New EU Aid for Ukraine.
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNMeioN1MU4

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: 

 

Article: Ukraine 'hits Russian missile boat Ivanovets in Black Sea'
Link used: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-68165523 

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 bing.com 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 bing.com 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? 

 

Video title: Natalia Perkins | Why are we excited about the Kitaev model?
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Weo4S45BZFg

Oh oh Mr Kitaev, I think electrons are magnetic monopoles. As such I wonder now we are a few decades later, where are the quantum computers based on your Hamiltonian?  

I have nothing more to say but: Thanks for your attention.  

 

(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...

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

 

(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: https://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2024/02/05/ 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: https://arxiv.org/pdf/2301.11343.pdf

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:

 NO! 

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.

That was it for today. Thanks for your attention. 

 

(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:
Video title: RUSSIAN Ruble Collapse & Sanctions are Crushing Russian Economy as Oil & Gas Revenues Fall 65%
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrryBjuTVmw

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:

Lets go to the next item. 

 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:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.

Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiw3aJwc7TU

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: 

 

Title: ‘No Time to Go Wobbly’: Why Britain Is Lobbying U.S. Republicans on Ukraine.

uk-us-republicans.html

Lets go to the next item. 

 Item 2) A picture of the official version of electron spin.

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:  

 

Video title: DAILY EXPLOSIONS IN RUSSIA – ST. PETERSBURG BLOWN UP. Vlog 579: War in Ukraine
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dq3BepTPmOs

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:    

 

Video title: Ex-US Soldiers: Ukr Command Posts BETTER Than US!
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfzkkFLTaiw

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: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-67978739 

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:
https://www.axios.com/2024/01/11/us-military-aid-ukraine-track-report 

__________ 

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:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet%E2%80%93Afghan_War#Impact 

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: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/ukraine-has-deficit-anti-
aircraft-guided-missiles-air-force-2024-01-09/

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...

Link used: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/ukraine-producing-
more-drones-than-state-can-purchase-minister-says-2024-01-09/

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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hf3bydzXjwQ

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:

 

Video title: Know This, If You Want to Understand Quantum Mechanics! | Stern-Gerlach Experiment | Quantum Theory
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmAu4Vpdn_c

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: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/what-
where-are-russias-300-billion-reserves-frozen-west-2023-12-28/

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.

Here is the video:

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)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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...

It takes only two minutes to view the next video, as always click on the picture to land at the video. The video itself is from the FOM archive of the university of Utrecht, so it might be older as 8 years.

That was it, thanks for your attention. 

 

(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.

If I remember it correctly at date 5 Feb next year the EU will try again to get some serious aid package for Ukraine done. Of course Hungary stays the crazy wildcard on this. So we have to wait and see how this all evolves over time... 

 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...

That was it for this update, thanks for not falling asleep while I rant on about electron spin. So thanks for your attention. 

 

(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: https://www.reuters.com/world/us/white-house-plans-one-
more-ukraine-aid-package-then-up-congress-2023-12-19/ 

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):

315,000 Russian Troops Have Been Killed Or Injured In Ukraine, U.S. Says—Far More Than Russia Claims.

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.

The same goes for the USA where the UA aid is mixed in with other things like funding border protection against illegal immigrants. Again lets hope for the best... 

Lets go to the next item. 

 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:

It looks like a very hard repair work, so this was well done my dear Ukrainians. Lets go to our next item: 

 Item 2) On the TU Delft loophole free Bell test, the 24 Aug 2015 paper.

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
Link used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNitpWGtFMU

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 bing.com 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 bing.com 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:

PERMANENT & MONOPOLE!  

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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEPwAJhR_uQ

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:

Ok lets call it a day and let me try to upload this to the biggest garbage can humanity has: the internet. Thanks for your attention and thanks for not falling asleep with my ramblings on electron spin. 

 

For the time being I think I keep the next picture as a 'closing logo' indicating you are at the end of this homepage. It was to cute to throw away, the math is utterly simple and I hope a tiny bit surprising.

Everything on the 3D complex numbers from 2012 and 2013 is bundled together in one html file.  

A primer on the three dimensional complex numbers.

For 2014 there is page number two: Page 2   

In 2015 we proceed with page number three: Page 3 

In 2016 still zero point zero reaction from the official math professors. Ok, let's proceed with page number four: Page 4 

In Nov 2015 I opened a separate website for the three dimensional complex numbers:

http://3dcomplexnumbers.net/

23 Dec 2014: Back in the year 1748 or so, Leonhard Euler found the very first exponential circle.  

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. 

An overview of 10 exponential circles & periodic curves.  

Please take your time and try to understand it page by page. If you do all 25 pages in one day, very likely you will go bonkers...

28 Oct 2015: Finally I started a new html page about electrons (and other spin half particles) that, after my humble opinion, are the long sought magnetic monopoles. 

It starts with the Ten reasons why electrons are magnetic monopoles

09 Jan 2017: The link above grew out to 41 reasons that electrons cannot be magnetic dipoles. We proceed with reason number 42 on

Page 2 as why electrons cannot be magnetic dipoles. 

Page 3 covers the stuff as found in the year 2018.

Page 4 covers the stuff for the year 2019.

Page 5 covers results found in the year 2020.

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

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

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

Ten styles for product integration and product differentiation.  

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

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

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

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

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

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...
