Primary Water, Abiotic Oil and Conspiracy

There is a minority belief that the ruling elite are purposely maintaining the theories of fossil fuels and the hydrological cycle to manipulate and control us, according to one author Jonathan Bensen of the Investment Watchdog internet site.

No, not really. The beliefs are mainstream because they are compatible with the modern Judeo-Christian worldview of divine creation at the time of the Big Bang, and the belief that life is a minor additional epiphenomenon of an inanimate Universe.  It is the way we have been trained to think that is the cause of these beliefs in fossil fuels and recycled water described by the hydrological cycle.

If Abiotic oil theory is correct, which it is, and water is a primary mantle product, which it also is, then these facts would of necessity contradict the mainstream beliefs, which if we thought scientifically, we would thus reject. But we don’t because we are too cocooned in our religious and political beliefs and a reality without a divine factor would delegitimise political power.

Except most of us don’t know how to think, let alone why but do excel at knowing what to think, for that is the way most of us have been trained at school and university.  Oh there are some original thinkers but those novelties are restricted to the boundaries of our worldview that is based on the belief in some original divine creating agent and an inanimate lifeless Universe.

I can’t imagine devout American or European religious scientists believing in a godless science, and many American geologists are also devout believers in the short-earth chronology.  Amazingly the secular ones also generally accept the astronomical Big Bang Theory as well, though how they manage to explain this belief in the light of its absurdity never ceases to amaze me. On one hand the religious believe in creatio-ex-nihilo, while the secular believe in the primordial infinite massive singularity that exploded. Creationism-ex-nihilo can be dismissed because its physically impossible. Putting all the mass of the Universe into a original point is equally absurd since a point isn’t a physical thing in the first place, but a location in some coordinate system, so the secular belief in the Big Bang Theory is just as nonsensical as creatio-ex-nihilo.  Let’s not forget that it was the devout Methodist Charles Lyell who first shifted biblical creation back in time and subsequently championed by the catholic Huxley clan who also championed Darwin’s theory. Short creation of 6000 years or expanded creation over 14 billions of years remain artefacts and not physical facts.The the Jesuit physicist Georges Lemaitre conceived his primeval egg theory that even amazed Albert Einstein who subsequently accepted it.

It’s simpler assuming what the Indian physicist Amit Goswami proposed – that the Universe is being continually formed by consciousness, with no start and no end but constantly moving in cycles, a view point that informs the theories of Martin Armstrong with his computer modelling of human activity over time. It’s the oriental world view that is older than the occidental one.

So the mainstream beliefs in fossil fuels and non-primary water are the logical outcomes of religious cultures.  It’s not the science so much as its underpinning cultural system that is the problem, and the direct consequence of the ability of humans to think while not understanding why they think or how they think. We just do and assume it as an unquestionable axiom. It’s not that we think that is the problem, but our refusal to change our minds when the facts change that is, and if we have been inculcated with religious beliefs, then believing in something that also contradicts one’s core beliefs would be a belief change too many. Just imagine convincing 2.5 billion Christians, 1.6 billion Muslims and 16 million Jews there may not be a God. Think you would succeed? No, of course not, so why even bother.

Creationism and Natural Processes ?

Searching for something trivial on the Internet I dredged up some reference to internet censorship and one link mentioned a Turkish Creationist which linked to a Wikipedia entry:

Creationism is the religious belief that the universe and life originated “from specific acts of divine creation,”[2][3] as opposed to the scientific conclusion that they came about through natural processes.[4] The first use of the term “creationist” to describe a proponent of creationism is found in an 1856 letter of Charles Darwin describing those who objected on religious grounds to the emerging science of evolution.[5]

The universe and life came about through natural processes???????????

And just what, precisely, is the natural process responsible for the creation of the universe? Or should it be “came about” ?????

Me thinks the authors are simply blethering us with non sequiturs, or more likely have no idea what they are writing about.

As far as I am concerned the universe and life always existed. Stars and planets etc come and go on a continuous basis and life forms spontaneously in environments suitable for it. And the late David Bohm, the quantum physicist, coined a holographic like reality in which there is an underlying implicate order out of which an explicate order unfolds and in which we exist. There is physical evidence for this world view.

But how and why remains mysterious and unknown. As Newton is alleged to have written, I also make no hypotheses.

Iron Age Madness

Gilad Atzmon pointed to an interesting bedtime story written for him by a reader, one Taxi, of his writings. It was written in response to the wondering where ‘choseness’ and a ‘vengeful god’ came from.  This story inadvertently focuses on paganism and its cultural excesses, but the story does not involve explaining why the various pagan tribes behaved so differently.  Velikovsky did, however, so assuming his scenario is reasonable, we could offer an explanation for why humans were so aberrant in behaviour during the Bronze and Iron Ages, and dare I say it, Middle Ages of our Era.

Humanity everywhere recalls a period of bliss, of a lost paradise the longing for which has not dissipated over time. This old garden of eden meme probably was based on an Earth orbiting a different sun, Saturn is the Thunderbolt Group’s guess, in which a proliferation of life existed compatible with the climatic and environmental conditions. Humans were one of many species, and presumably then did not think but acted spontaneously to instinct.  Sexual promiscuity would not have existed as humans, then, would have engaged in the sex act only triggered by natural urges, similar to what all other species to this day do.  Then something happened and my guess is that a plasma system instability occurred that forever changed things. Then the Earth might have been the companion of a dwarf star which, because of the ever-changing physical environment of the universe, started to change its behaviour for whatever reason.

For the Earth’s biosphere things changed drastically.  It might be useful to assume that before the Saturnian Event, the earth was a tropical paradise in which all the species lived in symbiotic relationships, with an abundance of food. Utopia in other words. This Utopia was party crashed probably by plasma interactions between the Earth and some errant cosmic interloper or as the break-up of the Saturnian configuration as proposed by Talbot and others of the Thunderbolts.info group. The net effect for humans experiencing this event would involve them suddenly being cast into a wilderness without food and water and faced with the struggle to survive – the beginning of the stone age which also saw the slow development of human thought.  In this scenario the brain action of thinking is assumed to be a peculiar attribute of humanoids, and which the very act of recollecting past memories of traumas caused them to temporarily isolate themselves from the awfulness of physical existence by escaping into their newly discovered imaginal world of the mind.

In order to survive humans then gathered around in small tribal family groups and probably as described by Taxi linked above. The pagan sexual excesses could be interpreted as a species hell bent on ensuring enough people were procreated to survive the next catastrophe that they themselves had survived. Purely animalistic misbehaviour driven by over-excited brains solely focussed on survival.  No longer having abundant food resources, humans started to plunder and pillage their fellow tribal groups, while other tribal groups might have started growing crops etc. It is also plausible that the survivors of the initial global catastrophe that wrecked the Biological Utopia were few in number as scattered remnants of humanity. Given the gradual appearance of the thinking process, these post-utopian humans would have explained their survival as the result of being chosen by whatever the prodigy in the heavens was, and which in the following pagan times, the planetary gods.

Julian Jaynes writing in his only book “The Origin Of Consciousness In The Break Down Of The Bicameral Mind” suggests that humans only became ‘conscious’ when the duality of the observer and the observed occurred some 3000 years in the standard chronology. Consciousness as we think we understand it is essentially the operation of the brain’s memory process and the development of the Ego via which we self-identify as the I, Ego, Observer, as more thoroughly treated by the Krishnamurtis, J and U.G, (no family relationship), so I won’t go into it here except to suggest that with the appearance of the ego, or the Id, the me, that the abstract concept of God also appeared as described by Taxi.

Cutting to the chase, it seems that Choseness is a normal reaction of those who survived some monumental geological catastrophe, and that the invention of the abstraction God was linked to the development of the Ego.

It is crucial one understands that God only exists when the Ego, the I, exists, creating the duality of me and an other. So when the brain stops thinking, which it does when one is sound asleep, then God ceases to exist as well, as God only exists while I the observer exists.

It also seems plausible that the development of abstract thought, as proposed by Jaynes, coincided with the tail end of the planetary wars proposed by Velikovsky, the last of which was during approx. 700 BC after which the solar system seemed to have settled down in its present state. This seems to have allowed the global development of not only the Greek and Roman civilisations, but also the other human civilisations in the Americas and Pacific Rim, until another global catastrophe occurred that caused the collapse of the Roman Empire, Pre-Columbian civilisation in the Americas etc., out of which both Islam and Christianity appeared.

The global urge to implement global socialism is merely the reaction of psychologically damaged humans who, in the thrall of their own imagined gods, believe that the reconstruction of an ecological utopian bliss of pre-Saturnian times will solve our present-day problems.

What they don’t understand is that the biological utopia then involved nonthinking humanoids, the modern equivalent of having now a human society totally comprised of robots. Robots don’t think, of course, but sadly, we have learnt to think so a return to the unthinking state is no longer possible. Nor is the return to the idyllic utopia of pre-Saturn times.  The liberals and progressives simply don’t understand that the genie is out of the bottle, and there is nothing they can do about it.

It’s those who believe they have been chosen, or saved, to implement a new utopia on earth who are the problem of our present day political travails.  They are the problem because they have removed themselves from the physical reality that were actually live in to the imaginal world of their religion(s).

Velikovsky averred that originally the Arabs and Jews were Venus worshippers.  One interpretation might be that Venus appeared briefly as the Comet of Justinian during the Middle Ages and delivered a final blow to the Earth before settling into its present day orbit.  It is pertinent that we recognise both Christianity and Islam appeared as institutionalised religions during this time. (And remember that religion is, after all, one method of people management, with different faiths offering different carrots to attract worshippers).

Medieval Madness

Folklore of the Medieval period, that which followed on from a previous dark Middle age after the Roman period, associated with climate catastrophes, comets and what not to stir the souls of the medieval people included the danger of sailing off the edge of the world while, perchance, also sailing towards China.  These are considered fantastic ideas and usually dismissed as nonsense.

Maybe not, for it depends much on how we understand the process of thinking which is basically the recollection of memories and the subsequent internal voicing of words into patterns that we call thoughts.  Obviously one cannot recall something that has never been ever observed or experienced in the first place, and then if the observed phenomena is novel, explained in terms of the existing lexicon.  So Australian aboriginals on seeing enormous, persistent electric discharges between the Earth and the morning star or heavens would memorise these observations metaphorically as a rainbow serpent, since the movement of an electric plasma discharge between two conductive bodies, as demonstrated in the laboratory Van der Waals experiment, appears like a snake or serpent. So what about the sailing off the edge of the Earth idea?

Simpler than it seems, for if we imagine a smaller Earth with no Atlantic Ocean but perhaps a small sea that people regularly sailed on to a land known as China to the west, (think pre Tertiary Americas), and that subsequently the Atlantic Ocean depression was formed catastrophically by a volume expansion of the Earth, then that crustal upheaval would suddenly create an enormous topographic low into which the earlier pre-existing epicontinental seas would empty into and any unfortunate sailor would have the impression that he was literally sailing off the edge of his known world into the Abyss of the Atlantic. The cause of this geological fantasy is more or less Velikovskian.

I should mention that the late Lyall Watson, South African biologist and author who penned the popular book “Super Nature”, among others, reported an anecdote in one of his books, quoting a secondary source, that Medieval sailors navigated using Venus, even during the middle of the day. We no longer see Venus during the day leading to the issue of why. Watson’s explanation was that humanity lost the ability to see such phenomena as a result of evolutionary changes. I would offer a different explanation, that Venus became invisible because it became less bright over time.  This explanation becomes interesting in the Velikovskian sense in which Velikovsky asserted that Venus was a young planet and must thus have been extremely hot and hence bright.

So one wonders why the British Admiralty sent Cook during the 18th century on his Pacific Ocean voyages to measure the transit of Venus. A disappearing Venus ?

Fantastic? Obviously. Plausible? Yes but not if you are a devotee of creationism and/or its liberal offspring Uniformitarianism, a dogma stuck with the job of explaining how something can be evolved out of nothing; in its case the abundance of time being the mechanism to achieve the impossible.

Given the proliferation of fake news these days, and the more unsettling observation that many of the fakirs of news seem to believe their fakes, I would tend not to casually dismiss the Medieval Myths out of hand, but to see if these myths had an origin in some or other geological fact, no matter how heretical such an idea might be.

After all the famous British economist John Maynard Keynes said that when the facts change, he changes his mind; and what do the rest of us do? Keynes had a scientific mind, in that it was capable of change.

These medieval myths suggest that the Roman Termination Event might have been a bit more than a couple of unpleasant climate catastrophes.  It all rests on what one prefers to believe, or not, and whether one is prepared to think out of the box as it were. This leads to the view that the causative agents were planets, Venus, Mars, etc as recorded in Roman and Greek histories, or our interpretations, which have since been replaced by metaphysical agents that seem to be feared as much as their physical antecedents.  While it’s one thing being fearful of a dangerous physical prodigy, whether rampaging elephant or white pointer shark, it’s another when the fear is purely metaphysical and thus totally imagined, whether some or other deity or in the secular world, some climate catastrophe prophesied by sacred computer models.

Update: If South America is rejoined back to Africa and Europe, then one would sail west to China from the Americas.  Hence the formation of the Atlantic Ocean would make the passage a wee bit longer and would explain why the Medieval peoples believed that sailing west would lead one to China.  It would if the Atlantic Ocean didn’t exist in the past.

Belief versus Knowledge

I’ve previously written that belief in something means that you only think that when you don’t know but perhaps the distinction between the two hasn’t been as well put, so here is another explanation.

Suppose I am a farmer and have a farm with many paddocks, some of which are quite a distance from the main house. One of the furtherest paddocks needs to be mowed and I ask my eldest son to mow that paddock the next day.  At the end of the day we both arrive home, I from a visit in town, he from his assigned job, the mowing of the far paddock.

I have not been to the mowed paddock to actually see whether it has been mowed, but I believe it to have been mowed, and may ask my son whether he completed the task.

However if, on returning from town, I diverted from my track to the house to the paddock in question and saw that it indeed had been mowed, I would no longer need to believe my son, but now know, from personal observation, that the paddock had been mowed.

So I believe when I don’t know, and when I do know, I no longer need to believe.

More Scientific Method and forecasting or prophesy.

Given that the climate changers don’t understand the scientific method, I’ll comment a little more on the philosophy or rationale of the method.

Say we suspect the existence of an iron ore body, of magnetite, some 300 meters below the Earth’s surface, from the interpretation of an airborne geophysical survey.  Maps are produced with 3-D imagery showing the trajectory of the proposed drill hole into the interpreted iron ore target.

Everyone would concur that this interpretation, given the regional geology of iron rich rocks, some of which crop out and others hidden underground, is correct.

Correct until a hole is drilled into the target to test it.

This is the mechanism of the scientific method. Something is observed, an explanation offered, and then tested, here by drilling.

Two outcomes are possible, pass or fail.

So the hole is drilled and the interpreted buried orebody not encountered; how do we react to this new data?

(I must stress that the over-riding principle is that the 3-D model is describing an object in the here and now, and that the geophysical anomaly, here a magnetic anomaly, will not disappear over time.  The scientific method only works for phenomena in the here and now).

The scientific mind will, on the result of the drilling, conclude the geophysical interpretation failed, implying that the theory has a problem, and hence accepts the modelling is false;

The non-scientific mind will, on the contrary, tentatively accepts the result but will introduce an ad hoc adjustment to reschedule the test into the future for another attempt when it is believed the theory, or modelling, will be verified.

Which put politely implies that the non-scientist expects the non existent magnetite orebody to magically appear in the future.

This approach is simply prophecy, and is used in climate science to assert that in the future catastrophic global warming will occur.

One reason why climate scientists are not employed in the mineral exploration business.

Big G

Rupert Sheldrake has pointed to the gravitational constant not being a constant but that it varies over time.  It actually varies rather precisely at 5.9 years and matches the Earth’s rotational speed cycle of 5.9 years.  Mainstream physicists do not know why this happens.

The gravitational constant, G, is determined by the Cavendish experiment involving two large and two small lead spheres. In the experiment G is measured in the horizontal plane. Both the gravity and electric fields are vertical. The magnetic field has a horizontal orientation at the equator and a vertical one at the poles.

The Earth’s rotation is caused by the Birkeland currents entering and exiting the polar regions. These currents would also generate the Earth’s magnetic field, and fluctuations in the geomagnetic field could be explained by variations in the Birkeland currents, which implies a variation in the solar current that is observed to cycle roughly 11 years or two earth cycles of 5.9 years.

Hence G seems to be affected by the geomagnetic field variation which is linked to the Earth’s rotation via the polar Birkeland currents.

This suggests G is affected by magnetism, since any change in the earth’s gravitational field is in the vertical direction that the Cavendish Experiment nullifies because of its design. If we imagine the balls of lead to be comprised of protons and electrons, then like attracts unlike and the large ball would attract the smaller.

Now imagine two identical spheres of metal, one made of lead, the other of aluminium. We know both will land at the same time, everything else being equal, when dropped from a height. This is a fact. 

Imagine you have two identical shapes of equal volume filled with protons, the aluminium shape having less protons than the lead shape.

The proton in the aluminium sphere will move at the same speed as a proton in the lead sphere and both will arrive at the earth’s surface when both are dropped at the same instant from a height.

Has the Cavendish experiment been done with a controlled E and M fields? A horizontal component of an E field may be present but unaccounted for since it is firmly believed G is independent of E and M.

Measuring mass is not an absolute measurement or quantification of the “stuff” an object of matter is made of. It’s relative.

Magnetic fields are always secondary effects of primary motion of electrically charged particles.  You cannot have a magnetic field in the absence of an electric current.

Protons spin and thus generate micro magnetic fields, or are they nano fields?

Matter is thus shapes containing spinning protons.

Newton did not know anything about electricity.
