The Zeroth Law of Science

It’s not that old. It was only about 150 years ago that scientists adopted the hypothesis that: Nature obeys fixed laws, exactly, no exceptions, and the laws are the same everywhere and for all time. Within a few decades, this went from a bold land grab* by the scientists, to a litmus test for whether … Read more

Orwellian Science

It was January, 2020, the very beginning of COVID, when news articles began appearing that connected the genetics of the virus with gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. These speculations were put to rest by an authoritative statement in the prestigious journal Nature Medicine, echoed by a summary in Science and an unusual … Read more

LENR—leads, links, and loose ends

Summary: Cold Fusion is a topic with which I have some firsthand experience. I have good reason to believe that a technology that could provide abundant, cheap, clean energy to all the world is being suppressed. Beyond this, I have read enticing accounts of advanced technology, all of which seem worthy of further investigation, none of … Read more

Where is memory stored?

Learning is a function of the brain. Memory is stored in synapses, the connections between neurons. They become stronger each time a connection takes place. “Neurons that fire together, wire together.” This theory was put forward by Donald Hebb in 1949, and it is, at best, one small part of the story. It may be completely false. I will … Read more

It was the brainchild of the Sackler family, planned and executed over decades. The … Read more

The Limits of Computer Modeling and the Limits of Science

Computer models are the mainstay of modern science. They comprise the lion’s share of the explosion of scientific literature in the 21st Century. Analytic Solutions yield to Computer Models Before computer models, quantitative science was limited to the simplest systems, those that could be described by a few equations and for which the equations happened … Read more

The big picture

This is how the world works.  Quantum physics can compute detailed probabilities for every microscopic event.  But half the information is missing,  and QM regards it as random. Nothing could be further from the truth.. What QM regards as random is actually governed by global mind including your mind and my mind and Jesus and … Read more

How Real Science became Fake News

Thirty years ago, the man who taught me quantum mechanics at Harvard wrote that the suppression of debate will be the “death of science”. Perhaps he saw the shape of things to come. Today, science is being perverted for political ends to an unprecedented extent. To look for an appropriate analogy, we would have to … Read more
