An Intuitionist Reinterpretation of the Science Method, Deduction and Induction in Hegel-friendly Terms (by Stephen P. Smith): Abstract: I hypothesize that it is the feeling that sources the middle term that allows exploration into Kant’s synthetic (an avenue Hegel and Husserl pursued), and this exploration is done by noting the intuitionist connections to deduction and induction. The deductive process goes through two Hegelian negations before returning itself to source. Otherwise, the principle of excluded middle cannot be justified as Husserl noted. Deduction and induction are two aspects of the same middle term, and their feelings can best be described as an oscillation: from crude to subtle. Newly cultivated feelings draw us into the synthetic as we discover deeper laws that are built from prior discoveries; this builds a spiral of understanding from the evidence compiled by our vast plurality, and permitting a spectacular celebration of the many as one. The oscillation become more subtle as feeling self cultivate. http://scigod.com/index.php/sgj/article/view/24

Integration of Scientific & Religious Experience (by Amrit S. Sorli)

Abstract: Science is developing rational experience of the world. Religion is searching for conscious experience of the world. Rational experience is analytic, we experience world divided in elements, conscious experience is synthetic, we experience world as Oneness. Scientific and religious experience has in common “the observer”. In science observer is observing and being conscious about scientific models of the world created by the scientific mind, he is observing experiment which proves or disproves a model. In religion the same observer is observing and being conscious about religious dogmas, rules and convictions; in religion observer is searching for inner experience of god, of sacredness of the world. The observer is the integrator of science and religion. Beside observing and being conscious of the outer material world and inner psychological world observer has ability to observe and experience him/herself. Self-experience is creating the realized human being in which are integrated scientific quantitative and religious qualitative experiences of the world. Realized human being is the ground for peace and harmonious living between different races, religions and nations, for cohabitation of man and nature. http://scigod.com/index.php/sgj/article/view/25

The Space-SuperSpace-MetaSpace Model (by Leon J. Neihouse)

Abstract: A new model of physical, objective reality consists of three embedded environments of MetaSpace (Paradise or Eternity in other models) which unfolds from an implicate order into SuperSpace (Heaven in other models) and Space (conventional life as it exists on Earth). This unfolding is presumed to have begun for our universe with a Big Bang of some 13 billion years ago emanating billions of planets within the Milky Way and billions of other galaxies in this universe, which locations are hypothesized to exist as centers for the evolution of life. All life forms, from oak trees to ants to human beings on this planet and even possible space aliens from other solar systems, are postulated to have an immortal Spirit existing perpetually in MetaSpace which unfolds from this implicate order in a trimorphic manner to a Soul or subconscious in SuperSpace and into normal, everyday consciousness in Space. The model assigns an ability for the consciousness of human beings living on this planet to interact through their Soul in SuperSpace and join with their Spirit in MetaSpace so as to directly experience Paradise. From the opposite direction, the Spirit in MetaSpace can join with its Space based consciousness so as to experience in Space and Time the potential with which the Spirit is eternally imbued in MetaSpace. With the full knowledge that all life will eventually return to its immortal existence in MetaSpace, a Primordial Energy from which the three embedded environments flow does not micro manage this unfolding process but permits SuperSpace and Space to unfold as determined by the collective free will of the participants. http://scigod.com/index.php/sgj/article/view/12

Quantum Interpretation of Vedic theory of Mind: an Epistemological Path and Objective Reduction of Thoughts (by Michele Caponigro, Ram P. L. Vimal): Abstract: This brief paper argues about a possible quantum interpretation of Vedic Theory of Mind. Chitta, Manas, Buddhi and Ahamkara, in our quantum approach will be considered respectively as: common ground, quantum superpositions, observer (quantum collapsing) and measurement outcomes eingvalues,Povm. We suggest that through the continue interactions between these four components, we are able to understand the formation of Ahamkara (Ego). Chitta (by vrittis) is linked to Manas via entanglement. The unsolved problem is the nature of Buddhi component and his right collocation in this process. Moreover, we argue that our approach can be supported by Zeilinger’s interpretations of quantum mechanics. Finally, we will speculate about possible analogy between Chitta and Bohm’s Holomovement. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/54

The Co-Evolution of Consciousness and Language and the Development of Memetic Equilibrium (by Christopher W. diCarlo)

Abstract: We now have significant evidence indicating many of the evolutionary constraints that contributed to the transitional phases through which hominins evolved cognitively from pre-conscious to gradually increasingly conscious states. With the co-evolution of language and consciousness, our ancestors were able to better understand relationships in terms of causality, morality, and mortality. And this is where we begin to see the incorporation of more and more memes into emerging and developing cultures. I will attempt to demonstrate that the acceptance of memes will deviate from individual, kin or group biological equilibrium if the perceived benefit of the meme(s) is intended to increase S-R value. With the emergence of sophisticated languages and consciousness, there arose an intimate and powerful connection between the memes of any particular individual, kin or group and their biological equilibrium. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/51

The Proclivities of Particularity and Generality (by Stephen P. Smith)

Abstract: The proclivities of particularity and generality describe a polarity, held together by a naked emotionality that signifies a felt middle-term. This polarity indicates a type of circular reasoning, and can endlessly oscillate due to an equivocation that confuses particularity with generality that may block emotional energies and prevent resolution. Deduction and induction represent the same polarity, as does the frequentist and Bayesian interpretations of statistics. Reintroducing emotion back into logic returns an intuitionist logic and grammar, and this permits the resolution of felt tension. This intuitionism is tied to a time-sense that oscillates between foresight (to particularity) and hindsight (to generality). Emotionality is found relating to causation, agreeing with A.N. Whitehead. It is hypothesized that the intuitionist logic provides a universal grammar, or a vitalistic organizing principle, that has impacted on biological evolution. This agrees with panpsychism and panentheism. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/55

From Dust to Descartes: My Thoughts on Various Aspects of Consciousness (by Micul E. Thompson)

Abstract: This short essay attempts to demonstrate how subjective experience, language, and consciousness can be explained in terms of abilities we share with the simplest of creatures, specifically the ability to detect, react to, and associate various aspects of the world. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/9

Author: Confucius (孔夫子); translated by James Legge

Confucius said, to live seclusive and search thy will; to achieve thy Way, by doing right: I have heard these words, but I have seen no such men..



11. 孔子曰:「見善如不及,見不善而探湯,吾見其人矣,吾聞其語矣!隱居以求其志, 行義以達其道,吾聞其語矣,未見其人也!」

Confucius said, In sight of good to be filled with longing; to look on evil as scalding to the touch: I have seen such men, I have heard such words. To live apart and search thy will; to achieve thy Way, by doing right: I have heard these words, but I have seen no such men.

12. 「齊景公有馬千駟,死之日,民無德而稱焉。伯夷、叔齊餓於首陽之下,民到于今 稱之,其斯之謂與?」 Ching, Duke of Ch'i, had a thousand teams of horses; but the people, on his death day, found no good in him to praise. Po-yi and Shu-ch'I starved at the foot of Shou-yang, and to this day the people still praise them. Is not this the clue to that?

13. 陳亢問於伯魚曰:「子亦有異聞乎?」對曰:「未也。嘗獨立,鯉趨而過庭。曰: 『學詩乎?』對曰:『未也。』『不學詩,無以言。』鯉退而學詩。他日,又獨立,鯉趨而過庭。曰:『學禮乎?』對曰:『未也。』『不學禮,無以立。』鯉退而學禮。聞斯二者。」陳亢退而喜曰:「問一得三,聞詩、聞禮,又聞君子之遠其子也。」

Ch'en K'ang asked Po-yü, Apart from us, have ye heard anything, Sir? He answered, No: once as my father stood alone and I sped across the hall, he said to me, Art thou learning poetry? I answered, No. He that does not learn poetry, he said, has no hold on words. I withdrew and learned poetry. Another day, when he again stood alone and I sped across the hall, he said to me, Art thou learning courtesy? I answered, No. He that does not learn courtesy, he said, has no foothold. I withdrew and learned courtesy. These two things I have heard. Ch'en K'ang withdrew, and cried gladly, I asked one thing, and I get three! I hear of poetry; I hear of courtesy; and I hear too that a gentleman stands aloof from his son.

14. 邦君子之妻,君稱之曰夫人,夫人自稱曰小童,邦人稱之曰君夫人,稱諸異邦曰寡 小君,異邦人稱之亦曰君夫人。 A king speaks of his wife as 'my wife.' She calls herself 'handmaid.' Her subjects speak of her as 'our lord's wife,' but when they speak to foreigners, they say 'our little queen.' Foreigners speak of her, too, as 'the lord's wife.'

Nonlinear Theory of Elementary Particles: I. Choice of Axiomatics and Mathematical Apparatus of Theory (by Alexander G. Kyriakos): Abstract: In the previous paper (http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/viewFile/14/11), which can be considered as an introduction to the nonlinear theory, we have shown that the Standard Model (SМ) is not an axiomatic, but an algorithmic theory. In the proposed article the simplest (minimal) axiomatics is examined from the point of view of the possible forms of its mathematical representation. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/30

"Electroweak Forces" Acting on TE, TM & TEM (by Giuliano Bettini)

Abstract: We have shown previously that the energy impulse four-vector of the propagating electromagnetic field inside a waveguide and in free space can be described by a Dirac spinor. This suggests an analogy with, for example, TE-electron, TM-positron and possibly TEM-neutrino. The aim of this work is an interpretation of the action, if any, of the electroweak gauge group SU(2)xU(1) on the before-mentioned e.m. fields (TE, TM & TEM modes). This is based on the following observation: The energy impulse four-vector is invariant under a global transformation of SU(2)xU(1), so the Dirac spinor can be “gauged” in order to verify not only the effect of the electromagnetic forces but also the weak forces. In other words, what are “weak forces”, if any, on TE, TM and TEM? Obviously this requires a modification of the Dirac equation to accommodate the larger gauge group. This is in fact done here, and it is shown that the analogous of the “weak forces” can be roughly interpreted in the following way: The W boson acts as a (receiving or transmitting) horn antenna, performing the transformation TEM ←→ TE, TM, giving or subtracting mass to the field; the Z° boson is as a radar target acting on the TEM (neutrinos) with a Doppler frequency. These objects have mathematical counterparts in gauge fields. No Higgs boson is needed in the theory. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/31

Equivalent Waveguide Representation for Dirac Plane Waves (by Giuliano Bettini)

Abstract: Ideas about the electron as a sort of a bound electromagnetic wave and/or the electron as electromagnetic field trapped in a (equivalent) waveguide can be found more or less explicitly in many papers. What we want to show here is that the Dirac equation for electron and positron plane waves admits an equivalent electrical circuit, consisting of an equivalent transmission line. The same transmission line is representative of a mode in waveguide, so one can also say that the Dirac equation for plane waves includes an implicit representation in terms of an equivalent waveguide. All calculations will be carried out in elementary form with the usual notations of circuit theory and electromagnetism and without the need to resort to Clifford algebra as in previous papers. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/32

Radar Scattering as "Gauge Theory" (by Giuliano Bettini)

Abstract: A preliminary attempt is made in this paper to construct a spinor theory of radar scattering or radar signal-target interaction as gauge theory in quantum mechanics. In this “gauge theory” of radar scattering radar signals and radar targets may become visible macroscopic objects to be put in analogy with Standard Model particles and interactions. The basic idea is that particles and forces are all of electromagnetic nature, light, and appear different due to the size and shape of interacting objects. For the purpose of this paper, one needs first to deal with a generic radar signal in spinor form. This is done by deriving a spinor representation of the TE and TM through the Dirac equation for plane waves, starting rigorously from Maxwell's equations without any use of equivalent V, I in electrical circuits. The representation is then extended to TEM. Then I introduce a tentative procedure to express the deflection of the field in a different direction, and its variation in frequency, and rest mass. This is accomplished through the interaction with SU(2)xU(1) gauge fields, i.e., electroweak interactions. Some simple but illustrative examples are given. Of course, the ideas set out here need further research. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/33

The Modern Analysis of the Problem of Multisecting an Angle (by Temur Kalanov)

Abstract: The work is devoted theoretical and practical analysis of an actual problem – the problem of multisecting (in particular, trisecting) an angle, i.e. the problem of division of a given arbitrary angle into the given set of equal parts using only a compasses and an unmarked straightedge. General statement of a problem is formulated. The mathematical analysis of the problem (within the framework of the theories of similarity of triangles and of similarity of concentric circles) and the logical analysis of the problem are proposed. It is proved that practical solution of the problem of multisecting an arbitrary angle with only a compasses and an unmarked straightedge is impossible because an arc cannot be transformed to the straight line segment with a compasses and a straightedge. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/34

Learning to Cooperate for Progress in Physics (by Jonathan J. Dickau): Abstract: At the 10th Frontiers of Fundamental Physics symposium, Gerard ’t Hooft stated that, for some of the advances we hope to see in Physics in the future, there must be a great deal of cooperation between researchers from different disciplines, as well as mathematicians, programmers, technologists, and others. Accomplishing this requires a new mindset; however, as so much of our past progress has come out of a fiercely competitive process - especially since a critical review of our ideas about reality remains an essential part of making progress and checking our progress. We must also address the fact that some frameworks appear incompatible, as with relativity and quantum mechanics, which remain at odds despite years of attempts to find a quantum gravity theory. I explore the idea that playful exploration, using both left-brained and right-brained approaches to learning, allows resolution of conflicting ideas by taking advantage of our innate developmental strategies. It may thus foster the kind of interdisciplinary cooperation we are hoping to see. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/26

Mathematics Is Physics (by Dainis Zeps)

Abstract: In series of articles we continue to advance idea that mathematics and physics is the same. We bring forward two basic assumptions as principles. First is the primacy of life as opposed to dominating reductionism, and second – immaturity of epistemology. Second principle says that we have reached stage of epistemology where we have stepped outside simple perceptibility only on level of individuality (since Aristotle) but not on level of collective mind. The last stage has reached only most of religious teachings but not physical science that is still under oppressive influence of reductionism. This causes that what we call research in physical science turns out to be simply instrumental improvement of perception within visional confinement we call field of information. We discuss and try to apply principle that within field of information we can’t invent or discover anything that doesn’t existing. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/27

It Is Not Higgs (by Gunn Quznetsov)

Weak Form of Electric-magnetic Duality, Electro-weak Massivation, and Color Confinement (by Matti Pitkänen)

Abstract: The notion of electric magnetic duality emerged already two decades ago in the attempts to formulate the Kähler geometry of the "world of classical worlds". Quite recently a considerable step of progress took place in the understanding of this notion. This concept leads to the identification of the physical particles as string like objects defined by magnetic charged wormhole throats connected by magnetic flux tubes. The second end of the string contains particle having electroweak isospin neutralizing that of elementary fermion and the size scale of the string is electro-weak scale would be in question. Hence the screening of electro-weak force takes place via weak confinement. This picture generalizes to magnetic color confinement. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/28

How to Define Generalized Feynman Diagrams (by Matti Pitkänen)

Abstract: Generalized Feynman diagrams have become the central notion of quantum TGD and one might even say that space-time surfaces can be identified as generalized Feynman diagrams. The challenge is to assign a precise mathematical content for this notion, show their mathematical existence, and develop a machinery for calculating them. Zero energy ontology has led to a dramatic progress in the understanding of generalized Feynman diagrams at the level of fermionic degrees of freedom. In particular, manifest finiteness in these degrees of freedom follows trivially from the basic identifications as does also unitarity and non-trivial coupling constant evolution.There are however several formidable looking challenges left. 1. One should perform the functional integral over WCW degrees of freedom for fixed values of on mass shell momenta appearing in the internal lines. After this one must perform integral or summation over loop momenta. 2. One must define the functional integral also in the p-adic context. p-Adic Fourier analysis relying on algebraic continuation raises hopes in this respect. p-Adicity suggests strongly that the loop momenta are discretized and ZEO predicts this kind of discretization naturally. In this article a proposal giving excellent hopes for achieving these challenges is discussed. http://prespacetime.com/index.php/pst/article/view/29

Author: Confucius (孔夫子); translated by James Legge

Confucius said, A gentleman has nine aims. To see clearly; to understand what he hears; to be warm in manner, dignified in bearing, faithful of speech, keen at work; to ask when in doubt; in anger to think of difficulties; and in sight of gain to think of right.



6. 孔子曰:「侍於君子有三愆。言未及之而言謂之躁,言及之而不言謂之隱,未見顏色 而言謂之瞽。」

Confucius said. Men that wait upon lords fall into three mistakes. To speak before the time has come is rashness. Not to speak when the time has come is secrecy. To speak heedless of looks is blindness.

7. 孔子曰:「君子有三戒。少之時,血氣未定,戒之在色;及其壯也,血氣方剛,戒之 在鬥;及其老也,血氣既衰,戒之在得。」

Confucius said, A gentleman has three things to guard against. In the days of thy youth, ere thy strength is steady, beware of lust. When manhood is reached, in the fulness of strength, beware of strife. In old age, when thy strength is broken, beware of greed.

8. 孔子曰:「君子有三畏:畏天命,畏大人,畏聖人之言。小人不知天命而不畏也,狎 大人,侮聖人之言。」

Confucius said, A gentleman holds three things in awe. He is in awe of the Bidding of Heaven; he is in awe of great men; and he is awed by the words of the holy. The small man knows not the Bidding of Heaven, and holds it not in awe. He is saucy towards the great; he makes game of holy men's words.

9. 孔子曰:「生而知之者,上也;學而知之者,次也;困而學之,又其次也。困而不學 ,民斯為下矣!」

Confucius said, The best men are born wise. Next come those that grow wise by learning; then those that learn from toil. Those that do not learn from toil are the lowest of the people.

10. 孔子曰:「君子有九思:視思明,聽思聰,色思溫,貌思恭,言思忠,事思敬,疑 思問,忿思難,見得思義。」

Confucius said, A gentleman has nine aims. To see clearly; to understand what he hears; to be warm in manner, dignified in bearing, faithful of speech, keen at work; to ask when in doubt; in anger to think of difficulties; and in sight of gain to think of right.
