If Correlation Doesn't Mean Causation, Why Do 'Scientists' Keep Chasing Correlations?
Can one expect otherwise in times of moral relativism?! Infinite correlations are EASY to chase because they are all relative! More DIFFICULT are the real causal factors that shape 'The World'. Scientist should quest for THE SET OF ABSOLUTE FACTS from which everything as we find things can be explained but it requires the courage to confront and the ability to go alone and withstand great opposition in the form of ridicule or even hate.
One of the most celebrated scientist of the 20th century said it like this in a letter to his daughter:
I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.
There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us.
This universal force is LOVE.
When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force.
Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it.
Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others.
Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals.
For love we live and die.
Love is God and God is Love.
Time To Address Time Again
Right after I started with this blog I posted about 'time' which isn't linear nor cyclical or modular because those qualities presume that time is something measurable which it isn't and thus 'time' simply defies our conventions. I still think so but meanwhile I have given the phenomenon we call time some more thought and want to share.
Lets first look at the commonly accepted definition of time:
the INDEFINITE continued progress of existence and EVENTS in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole.
Notice how event is part of the definition. What EVENT? YOUR LIFE! So time is an event that you 'create' and many yous do the same, meaning countless events happening in....ONE SPACE, AN ABSOLUTE. And what about INDEFINITE? This means unknown and vague and therefore 'impure' and not an ABSOLUTE, finite and pure. Think: at least binary....good/evil....get it?
Today this sentence came my way and it relates to the topic of time:
“Love and time; those are the only two things in all the world and all of life that cannot be bought, but only spent.”
- Gary Jennings
First it is obvious that the latter part of the sentence it is rooted in 'the world' (as in: ephemeral, trivial and profane) given the man made constructed ways of buying and spending, a system which wasn't always t here. Love and time on the other hand go way back before 'the world' came into being, think the biblical garden of Eden before the fall of man. So we're looking at a metaphor translated in such a way that the conditioned contemporary money obsessed mind can hopefully grasp something profound and meaningful.
Noteworthy also is the syntax; love is mentioned before time which is correct if you ask me. Why? Simple: love, just like space is an absolute as opposed to created events, time, which are 'sometimes propositions'.
So now go figure why the following dialogue from the movie 'The Man From Earth' bears more significance than the agreed purpose of an average movie would suggest:
Dan: Time... you can't see it, you can hear it, you can't weigh it, you can't... measure it in a laboratory. It is a subjective sense of... becoming, what we... are, in stead of what we were a nanosecond ago, becoming what we will be in another nanosecond. The whole piece of time's a landscape existing, we form behind us and we move, we move through it... slice by slice.
Linda Murphy: Clocks measure time.
Dan: NO, THEY MEASURE THEMSELVES, THE OBJECTIVE REFEREE OF A CLOCK IS ANOTHER CLOCK.
“Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, nor less so even if the whole world disagrees with it.” - Maimonides
Speaking of which: differentiate truth/a truth from 'the truth'. The latter is ABSOLUTE, IMMUTABLE and pure whereas a truth is 'subjective', impure and aspect of SOLIPSISM.
From Phaedo : "But we who live in these hollows are deceived into the notion that we are dwelling above on the surface of the earth; which is just as if a creature who was at the bottom of the sea were to fancy that he was on the surface of the water, and that the sea was the heaven through which he saw the sun and the other stars, he having never come to the surface by reason of his feebleness and sluggishness, and having never lifted up his head and seen, nor ever heard from one who had seen, how much purer and fairer the world above is than his own. And such is exactly our case: for we are dwelling in a hollow of the earth, and fancy that we are on the surface; and the air we call the heaven, in which we imagine that the stars move."
The Electric Sun
Forget what you think you know about the sun and listen to Don Scott with an impartial ear. Then use common sense and try to figure out if the conventional model of the sun is logical.
