Wolfram’s A New Kind of Science Upsets Climate Models and Weather Forecasting

Posted on August 25, 2010

Stephen Wolfram proves with his New Kind of Science that certain systems generate randomness from within the system – no outside randomness needed, no randomness in initial conditions needed. The system itself generates randomness thus making it unpredictable as a first principle of science. Oh, and these systems can be incredibly simple and yet generate […]

Wolfram Alpha – A new tool in the Climate Change Wars, The Alpha Wolf Howls in the Wind, plus Hans Island Ice Flow Weather Station

Posted on May 16, 2009

Wolfram Alpha compute “weather Vancouver”. Very interesting graphs and data. Try your city or a place you’re interested in. Plus Wolfram Alpha has Mathematica functionality built into it so you can use it to verify the computations of others. Using Wolfram Alpha to compute “weather Canada” produced the following interesting information. The Alpha Wolf uses […]

Matrix of Design, Why Some Computer Scientists See What Other Scientists Can’t

Posted on March 29, 2014

The unseen world of science that some computer scientists have an advantage seeing the objective reality of Nature through the Matrix of Design. “Two important characteristics of maps should be noticed. A map is not the territory it represents, but, if correct, it has a similar structure to the territory, which accounts for its usefulness.” […]

The President of the Royal Society Wants Scientists To Abandon The Scientific Method

Posted on May 26, 2011

Sorry Sir Paul Maxime Nurse, PRS (President of the Royal Society), in science funded by the public purse you’ve got to show your work when asked for it. If there are any scientists who refuse to show their work they can expect to get Freedom Of Information Requests. All they have to do is put […]

If you want honest members of the government take away their legal right to lie to you

Posted on November 29, 2010

The legal right of the government to lie to the people has always bothered me as it smacks of a lack of integrity by the very people allegedly empowered to have the highest levels of integrity and honesty by the people. The members of the government, in whatever capacity or role they are filling, have […]

Where do the laws of Nature come from? It from Bit?

Posted on September 3, 2010

Where do the laws of Nature come from? Let’s explore this by way of two very interesting conversations, one from philosopher and physicist Paul Davies and the other from Stephen Wolfram. Philosopher and physicist Paul Davies give a fascinating and thought-provoking talk on the possibility of an ultimate explanation for our universe. Dismissing the multiverse […]

Soothsaying Hot Doomsday Futures

Posted on July 29, 2010

Soothsaying Hot Doomsday Futures is all the rage. “Scientists from around the world are providing even more evidence of global warming. ‘A comprehensive review of key climate indicators confirms the world is warming and the past decade was the warmest on record,’ the annual State of the Climate report declares. Compiled by more than 300 […]

Numerous Haiti Earthquake Aftershocks Cluster West of Port-Au-Prince AND North Offshore Of And Under Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands

Posted on January 18, 2010

As is evident in the first few frames of this security camera you can see the building (reportedly a shopping mall type structure) collapse. That’s extremely fast considering that it basically went down on the first few earthquake wave crests in the first few seconds of this 7.0 quake. It really shows the potent power […]

When otherwise good math goes wrong especially in parallel or massively parallel programs

Posted on July 31, 2009

“Sometimes we forget that not all numbers are the same. This becomes very apparent in dealing with floating point numbers in parallel computing. … Floating numbers are not associative or distributive. … The more cores programmers run their parallelized code on, the more ways operations can be interleaved and the more challenges programmers face.” – […]

Boiling Water Contributes to Greenhouse Effect – H2O vapor is ten times worse than CO2!

Posted on July 13, 2009

They claim that the C02 greenhouse gas is the biggest challenge to our existence on Earth; if it’s true that C02 is a serious problem then why not a single word from them about the dangers of Water Vapor and Clouds which are the largest greenhouse gas contributor!? When gases are ranked by their contribution […]

Simple Systems Can Generate Complexity

Posted on February 22, 2009

“Even extremely simple programs can produce behavior of immense complexity. Everyday experience tends to make one think that it is difficult to get complex behavior, and that to do so requires complicated underlying rules. A crucial discovery in A New Kind of Science is that among programs this is not true—and that even some of the very simplest possible programs can produce behavior that in a fundamental sense is as complex as anything in our universe.” – Stephen Wolfram

Posted on February 22, 2009

I am an autodidactic self teaching life long student. “Self-education is the essence of genuine learning. Self-education provides the vitality that enables us to turn information into knowledge and to use it in such a way that it adds meaning to life. Indeed, without the dynamism of self-education, we fail to develop our own interests […]
