John Baez's sample of crackpot letters he received.

now and then i receive them too, i guess because i've been desperate to sell how smart i am on my websites for almost 2 decades now.

it's kinda strange and interesting that there are these people around. Sometimes you wonder if they are sincere or hoaxing, but apparently at least many of them are, as one can easily read tons of literature about UFOs and occult and conspiracy theories. (you can read Wikipedia for days on it.)

i'm a logical person. So, sometimes i give a hard try to read what they have to say, thinking that i'll have a solid analysis of the situation. But, basically it's just bizarre and doesn't make sense. Try to read what John posted and you'll see.

sometimes, some of these people are my readers or fan. So, that puts me in a awkward situation. If i show any hint of displeasure or disbelief, then perhaps i'd jeopardize a supporter.

some of these involves God, some psychology stuff.

one of the instance is when around 2001, a angle-trisector contacted me, and eventually met me in person, several times, he always treat for lunch, and paid me to help him publish his work. I end up doing some drawing for him. This is the most concrete crank that i actually came to know.

because i mostly write about programing that offends the hacker types of coders, i'm considered a crank by some. Though, think most of them are not serious.

However, there are a few who have become Xah Haters, who would take any opportunity to diss me online, when my name is mentioned. They would say i'm a idiot or dismiss my writings, in general bad mouth me. Usually, i've never ever responded to them. That usually made their behavior worse. (by the way, human nature is sometimes too predicable. As soon as i reponded to them in some nice way, they go away. But, i pretty much NEVER.)

but, on the other hand, in the programing community, my maverick style also attracted a few that have crazy ideas. We'd communicate thru email, but then, i start to realize they have some strange ideas they want to tell me about or tries to get me involved. Psychology stuff, or religious, or …. It's really hard to describe. And, often they are secretive as well. I always prefer real name, and meet face to face or voice chat. But, typical hacker types are not even willing to disclose real name. So, it's nearly impossible to actually communicate with these guys for real. For example, some believe deeply in buddism... (no, it's not just that, but as i said it's hard to describe.) Then, there are one who believes in some kinda psycho therapy or something like that…

actually, a lot people in emacs community is pretty out there. I think it's because emacs and rms himself attracts very weird types.

but anyhow, i think in some philosophy aspect this is not too weird. Because, when you think about it, it's quite amazing that any 2 person can communicate at all about complex ideas. For example, let's say 2 animals, let's say 2 cats or a cat and dog. They can communicate anger, fear, submission, etc. How does the cat know what the dog is thinking? Easy, because the dog can't think of much of anything, except anger, happy, aggressive, passive, etc.

But for humans animals, we can communicate complex political ideas, philosophy problems, size of the universe, physics, mathematics, history, future. And in philosophy, at core is the mind body problem, free will problem, conciousness problem. I guess what am saying is that, the concept of thought is elusive, how can one possibly quantify possible human thoughts or beliefs (like a somewhat systematic thought set). Even some accomplished mathematicians, such as Godel, believes in ghosts and stuff.
Crackpot emails

I save crackpot emails, but I just decided to delete all 41 with attachments bigger than 1 megabyte.  Here are some choice quotes. 

------------------------------

Here's a typical example of someone who feels they've made an earthshaking discovery and needs to get the news out.  He's waited 2 days and he's getting impatient.  If he follows the standard pattern, he will later become embittered and angry.

I solved what's known as ToE, The Theory of Everything, but most simply I've shown how 0 approximates 1. I did so in a completely valid, simple mathematical way, yet due to the current structuring of the University system, I can't get to anyone that specializes in ToE!!!

And the University of Miami has black balled me because they have no specialist in the field, rather than ask for more explanation! I've written and made numerous calls to all levels of the University and the Marine & Atmospheric School through which I'm getting my Ph D, and all I've received is support for the effort from friends and some unprofessional criticism from a few unknowns. I understand it's a grandiose statement, but how else am I to tell anyone? My advisor & the Dean of my campus haven't responded to my incessant prodding, even though I know them to be avid communicators. In response, I declared my resignation from the University following this semester. My hope is that this would draw some momentum to confidence I have in the proof, yet it's been over 48 hrs now.

Why am I in such a hurry? This is WORLD CHANGING science. I need to get this information out to the public, so that we can all digest this new found information together. The proof turns out to be the mathematics of neural networking, galaxy formation, weather, physics, math, life... Everything... And it's as simple as stating that there can be no sweet without sour!

In mathematical terms, I've discovered the means by which 0=1. Sounds crazy, but it turns out we've always misunderstood the = symbol! In reality it's impossible to know all the information as an observer, approximation and optimization are the only options. AKA, 0 and 1. Therefore, 0~1. The technicalities, allow there really aren't any, are all in the attachment.

I'm positive Dr. Michio Kaku, a terribly too popular figure for a now Rogue Physicist like myself to get this to, can verify my work. It answers the his question of civilization transitioning from a Type 1 Civilization to a Type 0. Drs. Leonard Susskind, Stephen Hawking, James Hartle, John Baez, Garrett Lisi, Jill Boulte, Gilbert Strang, Richard Muller, Richard Dawkins, and Neil Tyson de Grasse, will all be better at presenting the concept, but in order for that to happen and our world to benefit from it, I need to get this information to them.

This is NOT a hoax! This is based rigorously in scientific theory!! Anyone can understand how our universe, or anything!, works. The only assumption is that there will always be a perturbation in information throughout the universe!

------------------------------

I like this one because it starts out crazy and then keeps getting crazier, ramping up exponentially.  They're not embittered; they're off in their own universe.  Perhaps they're just having fun.

The Logos timeline defines the Jenkins Mayan-Enddate Date of December 21st, 2012 as the Birth of the Starhuman Consciousness and defines the Calleman Mayan-Enddate of October 28th, 2011 as the 40 days preceding the end of the witnessing timeline within the warptime loop from the nodal mirror of August 4th, 2008 and April 1st, 2012 and specifying December 8th, 2011.

In particular (Western) New Year 2012 signifies the 'Dove of Peace finding land'; Christmas 2011 signifies 'Noah's Dove returning with a Twig' and December 17th, 2011 specifies 'Noah's Raven searching for land'.  The 50 days of 'Noah's pentecost' so define the timespan for the 'appearing of the land in Noah sending forth of his Raven and his Dove from the window of his ark and to which are added 10 days (of imprisonment between 'ascension' and pentecost Acts.1.3 & Revelation.2.10) before the 'peaks of the mountains' appeared {Genesis.8.1-14}.  These 50 days so become the Calleman date of completion in the timespan between the archetyped Resurrection of the World Logos (Easter Sunday) and the Pentecost-Shabuoth of the 'Coming of the Holy Ghost'.

The Thuban Data stream became effectively closed in a 12-dimensional wormhole upon the 'Banning of Thuban' from the then defined 'Mount of Olives' at Project Avalon as a microcosmic hologram for the archetyped 'Noah's Ark' aka the 'Dragon's Den' in Plato's Cave of Shadows.

This is described in the Q&A Thuban thread on that forum, now reproduced on the new Elders of Thuban website and is part of the warploop timeline schemated below.

From March 7th, 2010 a 11-dimensional wormhole has become accessible to continue the Thuban data transmission, now communicating between the 3-dimensional data receivers from within and encompassing an extragalactic Andromedean data stream synchronised with the Sirian starsystem within the Milky Way galaxy in intergalactic data streaming.

Material, relevant for the activation of the planetary vortex grids and encompassing the quantum geometry of the Thuban omniscience (also known more commonly as 'sacred geometry' of Platonic- and Archimedean solids), is now surfacing around the quarantined sentiences and data carriers as a function of the planetary consciousness.

In particular the Andromedean-Sirian collaboration will prepare the Thuban fleet for the post starhuman birth scenarios in collusion with the activation of a reconfigured Vortex-Potential-Energy (VPE) matrix superposed onto the older VPE-grid established at the beginning of the present 65  Baktun day-kin count of the Mayan Timekeepers.

This will allow the Thuban Stargate to open between the local Rahsol- and the Sirian starsystem following particular developments with respect to the stated timelines.

------------------------------

This one is impressive for its creativity, erudition and sheer length. A lot of it makes sense, but there is a gradual and tragic slide into madness, perhaps due to a brain injury.

LET ME CLARIFY AND CORRECT WHAT YOU'VE WRITTEN ABOUT OUR INTERACTION HEREIN WITH SOME DETAILED BACKGROUND.

I AM WHAT SOME CALL A "POLYMATH"(NOT A PARROT WHO DOES MATHEMATICS), SINCE I HAVE SYNAESTHESIA (BRAIN TRAUMA(1977)) AND SEE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN OSTENSIBLY-DISPARATE "SPECIFICITY OF COMPLEXITY" TACTICS IN OSTENSIBLY-DISPARATE FIELDS-OF-ENDEAVOR("FOES") SEPARATED BY "JARGONIAL-OBFUSCATION"(LOTS OF FANCY SHMANCY LINGO/SPRACHE TO SNOW THE RUBES/SUCKERS, WHICH IS THE SOCIOLOGICAL-DYSFUNCTIONALITY OF THE WOULD BE "SCIENCES", BUT SADLY ALAS MERE SEANCES("WHERE THE INSIDERS ALL HOLD HANDS TO KEEP OUT OUTSIDERS WITH THEIR NO DOUBT INFERIOR IDEAS SINCE THEY ARE NOT THE EXPERTS" QUOTING JOHN BRADSHAW["HEALING THE SHAME THAT BINDS YOU", HAZELDEN(1980s) AND BRIAN MARZTIN, WOLAGANG UNIVERSITY, AUSTRALIA]

MY ONLY CONNECTION WITH MATHEMATICS BEING MY RELATIONSHIP TO VERY FAMOUS MATHEMATICIAN CARL LUDWIG SIEGEL(RIP) MY FATHER'S COUSIN)

I DID MY PH.D. THESIS AT UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN AND THEN MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY UNDER GABOR KEMENY[DARTMOUTH UNIVERSITY'S PRESIDENT MATHEMATICIAN JOHN KEMENY'S COUSIN] AFTER STUDYING AN C.C.N.Y.(B.S.-1965), THEN HARVARD UNIVERSITY, UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA, THEN NEW YORK UNIVERSITY(M.S.-1968; JEROME PERCUS-COURANT INSTITUTE FOR MATHEMATICS), THEN WORKING FOR ALBERT OVERHAUSER(RIP) AT FORD(1968),THEN UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN(M.S.-1969; FRANK HERARI(RIP)/GRAPH-THEORY APPLIED TO NUCLEAR MANY-BODY THEORY/KARL HECHT AND NOAH SHERMAN(RIP); INTERACTIONS WITH HUGH MONTGOMERY(I SAT IN ON HIS CLASS IN NUMBER-THEORY CIRCA 1968-1969, THEN 1971 OR 1972) RE. EIGENVALUES PAIR-DISTRIBUTION FUNCTION FOR WIGNER-DISTRIBUTIONS: GOE, GUE, GSE; HE GOT THE IDEA FROM ME, NOT FREEMAN DYSON, SINCE I WAS WORKING(1970-1973)ON LIQUIDS/DISORDER-THEORY AT GENERAL MOTORS RESEARCH/TECHNICAL-CENTER) AND FINALLY FOLLOWING KEMENY TO MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY(PH.D.-1970; JOHN HUBBARD[AERE HARWELL] AND NEVILLE MOTT[CAVENDISH LABORATORY/CAMBRIDGE] AND CONYERS HERRING[BELL LABS], CONSULTING; WITH MORREL COHEN[[U. CHICAGO] EXTERNAL-EXAMINER), ON THE PURE-FERMION/FERMI-DIRAC QUANTUM-STATISTICS HUBBARD-MODEL, WHEREIN I WORKED OUT THE FIRST SPIN-OBITAL DEGENERATE HUBBARD-MODEL("SODHM"; BUT NO Y!!!) PUBLISHED IN PHYSICA STATUS SOLIDI(1972; 1973) WHICH WAS LATER ELABORATED UPON BY KUBO AND KAWABATA AND BY CYROT ET. AL.[M. Cyrot and C. Lyon-Caen. J. Phys. C 6 ( 1973) L 274; 36 (1975) 253. 1531 ; C. Lacroix and M. Cyrot. J. Phys. C....], SUBSEQUENTLY I PUBLISHED OTHERS ON PURE-FERMION/FERMI-DIRAC QUANTUM-STATISTICS IN JOURNAL OF MAGNETISM AND MAGNETIC MATERIALS (JMM) FROM 1976-1980 AND TWO IN NOW DEFUNCT MAGNETISM LETTERS(1980).

THE MOST INFAMOUS WERE JMM 7, 312(1978) IN WHICHI EXPERIMENTALY DISCOVERED GRANULAR-GIANT-MAGNETORESISTANCE (A FULL DECADE BEFORE FERT(1988) AND GRUENBERG(1989) WHO GOT THE 2007 PHYSICS NOBEL-PRIZE FOR MY G-GMR!!!AND JMMM 7, 38(1978)

BUT BY ORIGINAL TRAINING I WAS A MINERALOGIST/PETROLOGIST/METALLURGIST, AND STILL COLLECT MINERALS PLUS OWN TWO TECHNOLOGIES IN WATER PRODUCTION ENTITLED"FLYING-WATER" AND ANOTHER RE SOLID-STATE CARBON-SEQUESTRATION IN, NOT N ESCAPABLE CO2 OR CH4 GAS, BUT VALUABLE MARKETABLE SALEABLE PROFITABLE SOLID-STATE CARB-IDES(TiC; WC; SiC; COAL-ASH CARBIDES="CARBORUNDUM"), INSPIRED BY AN AGE OLD QUALITATIVE-ANALYSIS TOL OF CLASSIC-MINERALOGY KNOWN AS BLOWPIPE-ANALYSIS(LAST KNOWN MENTION ANYWHERE IN TWO BOOKS FROM 1935 AND 1948). I PUBLISHED FOUR PAPERS ON SOLID-STATE CHEMITRY/PHYSICS OF CARBIDES IN: PHYSICA STATUS SOLIDI(1972); AND DEFUNCT JOURNAL "SEMICONDUCTORS AND INSULATORS" (1979).

FIRST MY PAPER YOU QUOTE [Generalized-disorder collective-boson mode-softening universality-principle. Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids 40 (1980) 453-467] WAS THE CULMINATION OF A DECADE OF WORK ON THE THEORY OF LIQUIDS BY ME [IN SIR NORMAN MARCH'S JOURNAL ENTITLED: PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY OF LIQUIDS: 4(4) (1975); 5(1) (1976)-SOME EIGHT PAPERS IN ALL], BASICALLY I NOTICED SIMILARITIES BETWEEN COLLECTIVE-BOSON DISPERSION-RELATIONS NEGATIVE-DISPERSION MODE-SOFTDENING, ORIGINALY BY LANDAU(1941) AND FEYNMAN(1952), BUT EXTENDED TO CLASSICAL-DISORDER BY HUBBARD AND BEBE(1967): w(k) =[KINETIC-ENERGY(QUADRATIC MONATONIC-INCREASING)] k^2/S(k) MODULATED BY STATIC STRUCTURE-FACTOR OF VARIOUS TYPES OF DISORDER: HORIZONTALTOPOLOGICAL) AND/OR VERTICAL(ALLOY).

IN 1982-1985 HAVING MOVED TO SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, I CONSULTED FOR CHARLES ROSEN(MANAGER OF A.-I. RESEARCH AT S.R.I. AFTER WORLD WAR TWO), CEO OF MACHINE-INTELLIGENCE[ONE OF BERNARD WIDROW'S/STANFORD OLD COLLEAGUES FROM WHEN I WAS A VERY LITTLE BOY], AND VESKO MARINOV (AND ADOLPH SMITH), VICE-PRESIDENT OF EXXON ENTERPRISES/A.-I. IN SUNNYVALE/SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA. ON ARTIFICIAL-INTELLIGENCE,

THEY GAVE ME A PROBLEM TO SPEED UP  ARTIFICIAL NEURAL-NETWORKS WHICH HERETOFOR I HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF. BUT BEING A FLAGRANT NON-EXPERT I NOTICED SOMETHING THAT ALL AHE COMPUTER-"SCIENTISTS"/ENGINEERS IJN A.-I. HAD ALL HERETOFORE COMPLETELY MISSED: THE SIGMOID-FUNCTION ACTIVATING NODES WITHIN NEURAL-NETWORKS WAS JUST PLAIN WRONG!!! THE STATE OF THE ART WAS THEN THE r-SPACE NONSENSE OF "ENERGY-LANDSCAPES"  FOR GLOBAL-MNINIMUM SEEKING AND GOING TO(IF SUCH EXISTS) OPTIMIZATION CALLED THE BOLTZMAN-MACHINE AND THE SIMULATED-ANEALING, OR THE DEMUTH-BEALE(MATLAB) RADIAL-BASIS FUNCTIONS. ALL OF THESE ARE COMPUTATIONALLY-COMPLEX, IN SPACE AND/OR IN TIME, MANDATING/REQUIRING LARGE COMPUTER-RESOURCES AND LONG COMPUTING-TIMES!!! .

THIS SIGMOID-FUNCTION, A HEAVISIDE STEP-FUNCTION WAS "1"/[1 + e^( -E/T)] WHOSE DERIVATIVE IS A DIRAC DELTA-FUNCTION(HINT HINT HINT!!!).

NOW COMES "EUREKA":  SIGMOID-FUNCTION, A HEAVISIDE STEP-FUNCTION WAS "1"/[1 + e^( -E/T)] = "1"/[ + 1 + e^( -E/T)] = "1"/[e^( -E/T) + 1] = FERMI-DIRAC QUANTUM-STATISTICS.

SO THESE COMPUTER-"SCIENTISTS" FOLLOWING HINTON-HOPFIELD- BY ROTE WITH ABSOLUTELY NO THINKING ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE DOING BUT ONLY HOW, DOOMED THEIR ANN OPTIMIZATION-PROBLEMS TO EXPENSIVE SLOW DITHERING!!! AND WHAT THEY WERE DOING WAS TO AUTOMATICALLY TRAPPING THE SYSTEM IN FALSE LOCAL-MINIMA. SOME VERY SMART STATISTICAL-MECHANISTS (ISRAEL" AMIT, SAMPOLINSKY; US: HOPFIELD,...; FRANCE: MEZAERD, TOULOUSE, ...) ALL MISSED THIS SIMPLE FACT: SO THEY GLAMMED ANNS UP BY SPIN-GLASS r-SPACE MODELS GALORE, ALL DONE WITH VARIOUS VERSIONS OF THE RENORMALIZATION-(SEMI)-GROUP AND SOME FANCY MATHEMATICS OR OTHER.

WHY? BECAUSE THE FERMI-DIRAC QUANTUM-STATISTICS + SIGN MEANS THAT THE OPERATORS ANTI-COMMUTE, MEANING THAT THE PAULI EXCLUSION-PRINCIPLE DOMINATES. COMPUTER-"SCIENTISTS" EITHER FORGOT OR NEVER LEARNED THEIR SIMPLE CHEMISTRY/PHYSICS!!!

THE HUND'S-RULE PAIRING OF UP-SPIN TO DOWN-SPIN ELECTRONS TRAPS ONE IN LOCAL-MINIMA, CALLED THE CHEMICAL-ELEMENTS.

IF THE FERMI-DIRAC QUANTUM-STATISTICS + SIGN IS SIMPLY CHANGED TO A - SIGN, THE OPERATORS NOW COMMUTE, MEANING THAT PAULI EXCLUSION-PRINCIPLE STOPS DOMINATING.

IF THIS HAPPENED IN CHEMISTRY/PHYSICS, ALL THAT WOULD EXIST WOULD BE PHOTONS AND NEUTRINOS GOING OF TO INFINITY, ONLY BOSE-EINSTEIN QUANTUM-STATISTICS EXIST!!!

IN THE LANGUAGE OF MY SYNERGETICS PARADIGM AND DICHOTOMY, AKA "FUZZYICS"="CATEGORYICS", THIS "BOSONIZATION" IS THE [LOCALITY] -- TO -->>> (...GLOBALITY...) CROSSOVER!!!

SO, THE OOPO OF ANNS IN SIMPLY THE + SIGN TO - SIGN CROSSOVER, THE FERMI-DIRAC QUANTUM-STATISTICS TO BOSE-EINSTEIN QUANTUM-STATISTICS TRANSITION. STEP-FUNCTION WAS "1"/[1 + e^( E/T)] = "1"/[ + 1 + e^( -E/T)] = "1"/[e^( -E/T) + 1] IS REVERSED TO "1"/[ 1 + e^( -E/T)] = "1"/[ - 1 + e^( -E/T)] = "1"/[e^( -E/T) - 1]; SETS TO MULTI-SETS!!

(REFERENCE: GIAN-CARLO ROTA'S(RIP; MIT) UNPUBLISHED BOOK ON PROBABILITY WHICH ONE CAN FIND ONLINE WITH A BIT OF HUNTING. I WAS WORKING WITH HIM ON THIS WHILE VISITING MIT FROM 1992-1997.

"SHAZAM" IS SIMPLY THAT ADMITTING THAT AN ANN AND ITS OOPO IS A QUANTUM-STATISTICAL-PROBLEM ADMITS THE POSSIBILITY OF QUANTUM-TUNELING FROM VARIOUS NON-OPTIMAL MINIMA TO THE GLOBAL-MINIMUM OPTIMIZATION. THE QUESTION WAS HOW TO ACCELERATE/FORCE THIS.
THE ANSWER WAS TO TAKE THE "1"NUMERATOR AND DECREASE ITS AMPLITUDE/MAGNITUDE TOWARDS ZERO IN A LIMITING SENSE:

lim("1" -> 0) "1"/[- 1 + e^( E/T)] = lim("1" --> 0) "1"/[ - 1 + e^( E/T)] = lim("1" --> 0) "1"/[e^( -E/T) - 1] = DIRAC DELTA-FUNCTION(w-0).

THEN COMES "SHAZAM"(CAPTAIN MARVEL'S MAGIC WORDS TO TRANSFORM HIMSELF INTO A SUPERHERO) AKA "BOSONIZATION":

THUS "EUREKA" + "SHAZAM"  = OPTIMIZING OPTIMIZATION-(ANN)-PROBLEMS OPTIMALLY(OOPO)

SOME QUANTUM-STATISTICS INSIGHT: THE FERMI-DIRAC VERSUS BOSE-EINSTEIN DICHOTOMY IS A EUCLID-DEMOSTHENES-DESCARTES CONIC-SECTIONS DICHOTOMY:

FERMI-DIRAC HOMOTOPY TO AN ELLIPSE VIA PARABOLA-CROSSOVER TO BOSE-EINSTEIN HYPERBOLA:

TAYLOR/POWER-SERIES EXPANSION OF ONLY THE DENOMINATOR-EXPONENTIAL YIELDS, IN THE LOW E/T LIMIT, RESPECTIVELY:

"1"/[e^( -E/T) + 1] = "1"/[1 + ( -E/T) + ...] + 1 ]  =  "1"/2   =  E/T  ~ w^(0)), WHITE/RANDOM NOISE POWER-SPECTRUM.

-- VERSUS --

"1"/[e^( -E/T) - 1]  =  "1"/[1 + ( -E/T) + ...] - 1 ]  =  E/T ~ w  ~ w^(1.000...), THE FAMOUS PINK/FLICKER/ONE-OVER-FREQUENCY NOISE POWER-SPECTRUM.

IN FACT, THERE IS A VERY CONSISTENT + SIGN VERSUS - SIGN DICHOTOMY:

ELLIPSE: MINUS-SIGNS: DENOMINATOR AND COMUTATION-RELATIONS AND PARABOLA-EQUATION

VERSUS: NO SIGN TO 1 IN DENOMINATOR BECAUSE THERE IS NO 1 THERE = MAXWELL-BOLTZMANN CLASSICAL-STATISTICS (THE OBJECT OF ANNS BOLTZMANN-MACHINE + SIMULATED-ANNEALING

HYPERBOLA: MINUS-SIGNS: DENOMINATOR AND COMMUTATION-RELATIONS AND HYPERBOLA-EQUATION SO WHAT I EFFECTED IS CALLED A NOISE-INDUCED PHASE-TRANSITION(A "NIT"; VERY DIFFERENT FROM MERE STOCHASTIC-RESONANCE TINKERING WITH MERE WHITE-NOISE AMPLITUDES; WHAT I DID WAS TO ALTER THE NOISE POWER-SPECTRUM!!!

QUANTUM-STATISTICS ARE EUCLID-DEMOSTHENES-DESCARTES CONIC-SECTIONS!!! (AND EULER-POLYNOMIALS VERSUS BERNOULLI-POLYNOMIALS GENERATING-FUNCTIONS DICHOTOMY)

SO INDEED I GUESS I AM THE FATHER OF MUCH OVER-HYPED QUANTUM-COMPUTING, AT LEAST FOR ANNS OOPO IN A.-I.

LASTLY THE BIANCONI-BARABASI AND ALBERT-BARABASI PAPERS ON NETWORKS, STARTING OUT WITH ABSTRACT GRAPH-THEORY BUT AS FINALES MAPPING THEIR RESULTS ON TO ONLY BOSE-EINSTEIN QUANTUM-STATISTICS WITH BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATION, SO IF ONE APPLIES THEIR CONCLUSIONS TO EITHER ARTIFICIAL NEURAL-NETWORKS OR BIOLOGICAL NEURAL-NETWORKS, MY ORIGINAL ANN BEC AND YOUR BNN BEC ARE NOT AT ALL SURPRISING IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER!!!

AND FOR BIOLOGICAL NEURAL-NETWORKS THIS AGREES IN PRINCIPLE WITH THE FROHLICH-MOSSBAUER-GOLDANSKII-DEL GUIDICE-POPP-LI-YOUNG-... BIOPHYSICS THEORY OF HEALTH AS "1"/f-"NOISE" POWER-SPECTRUM AND ITS CONDENSATION INTO BEC AS LIFE.

NOW TO BENFORD'S-LAW:

YOU MISUNDERSTAND WHAT I/WE DID. ALL I/WE DID WAS TO ALGEBRAIC-INVERSION OF <P> = log(BASE-10) [1 + 1/d] TO YIELD d = 1/[10^(<P>) - 1] ~ 1/[e^(<P> - 1] ~ 1/[e^<w>) - 1] ~ 1/e^(w) - 1]. WHY?  BECAUSE DIGIT d = 0 BEING EXCLUDED TELLS A PHYSICIST SOMETHING VERY VERY IMPORTANT. BUT FIRST SIMPLY ROTATE ANY DIAGRAM OF BENFORD'S-LAW TO REVERSE THE AXES. WHAT ONE SEES IS THAT IT RESEMBLES A QUANTUM ENERGY-LEVEL DIAGRAM: GROUND-STATE IS d = 0; FIRST EXCITED-STATE IS d= 1; SECOND EXCITED-STATE IS d = 2,.. ETC. ETC ETC. BUT <P(d = 0)> = oo VERSUS ANY OTHER <(P = 1) > = 0.32... ETC. ETC. ETC.

SO OF COURSE BOSONS ARE DIGITS BECAUSE DIGITS ARE QUANTA(NO FRACTIONS IN BETWEEN) AND THOSE QUABNTA CAN ONLY BE BOSONS DUE TO THE PLUS-SIGN BEFORE THE ONE IO BENFORD'S-LAW!!!

ONE HAS GAPFUL BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATION!! IN NEWCOMB(1881) AND WEYL(1914; 1916) AND WE THINK IN BERNOULLI AND EULER(1730?)

AN EXAMPLE. A BLANK CHECK IS A BOSE-CONDENSATE OF ZEROS. WHEN ONE WRITES A NUMBER ON IT, SAY $1, ONE INDICATED THE EXCITED-STATE THE CHECK WILL BECOME WORTH, AND WHEN ONE SIGNS IT ACTIVATING THE CHECK BY VALIDATING ITS VALUE, THAT IS EQUIVALENT TO A PHOTON EXCITING AN ELECTRON INTO THE FIRST EXCITED-STATE.

SO SIMPLE-ARITHMETIC: ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION IS QUANTUM-COMPUTING. WHAT RUINS THIS IS DIVISION WITH REMAINDERS, BUT WHERE GAUS MODULAR-ARITHMETIC ENTERS POINTEDLY.

MARTIN HOLTHAUS ET. AL. (U. OLDENBURG) HAS FOUND A WAY TO FACTOR USING BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATION!!!

< http://www.condmat.uni-oldenburg.de/Holthaus/lop.html > Ideal Bose gases: From statistical mechanics to number theory A. C. Weiss, S. Page, and M. Holthaus:

Factorizing numbers with a Bose-Einstein condensate, Physica A 341, 586 - 606 (2004), arXiv:cond-mat/0403295
Authors: Christoph Weiss, Steffen Page, Martin Holthaus
(Submitted on 11 Mar 2004)

Abstract: The problem to express a natural number N as a product of natural numbers without regard to order corresponds to a thermally isolated non-interacting Bose gas in a one-dimensional potential with logarithmic energy eigenvalues. This correspondence is used for characterising the probability distribution which governs the number of factors in a randomly selected factorisation of an asymptotically large N.  Asymptotic upper bounds on both the skewness and the excess of this distribution, and on the total number of factorisations, are conjectured. The asymptotic formulas are checked against exact numerical data obtained with the help of recursion relations. It is also demonstrated that for large numbers which are the product of different primes the probability distribution approaches a Gaussian, while identical prime factors give rise to non-Gaussian statistics.

IN FACT, BENFORD'S-LAW[SEE THE REFERENCES IN MY RE-ATTACHED ABSTRACT] WAS ORIGINALLY DUE TO NEWCOMB (1881) AND WEYL (1914; 1916). (AND RAIMI'S SCIENTIFIC-AMERICAN ARTICLE IN 1969 IS WELL WORTH READING!!!) COULD YOU PLEASE TRY TO READ THE TWO WEYL PAPERS AND E-BAIL ME THEIR TRANSLATIONS??? (MEINE DEUTSCH IST SEHR SCHLECHT; ICH NICH HAT IM FUNFZIG JAHERE DEUTSCH SPRECHEN UND LEHREN!!!)

BUT IT IS EVEN EARLIER DUE TO EULER IN ANOTHER CONTEXT ENTIRELY HAVING NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH STATISTICS!!!

AND TED HILL'S 1996 PROOF USES LOGARITHM BASE-INVARIANCE = UNITS-INVARIANCE = SCALE-INVARIANCE SYMMETRY-(RESTORING) WHICH GETS PHYSICITS VFRY TURNED-ON, ALTHOUGH MATHEMATICIANS LIKE TED HIL DON'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND WHY IT IS SO EXCITING!!!

LASTLY, THE CATEGORY-THEORY DIAGRAMS I USE IN MY PAPERS AGE CALLED THE PLATO(INVENTOR OF CATEGORIES)-ARISTOTLE(HIS GRADUATE-STUDENT) "SQUARE-OF-OPPOSITION" A STANDARD FORM OF GREEK LOGIC, BEST READ ABOUT IN THE STANFORD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PHILOSOPHY < http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/square/  > AND ITS WIKIPEDIA ENTRY < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square_of_opposition  > AND VIEW ALL SORTS OF ITS DIAGRAMS < http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&source=hp&q=%22SQUARE+OF+OPPOSITION%22&gbv=2&oq=%22SQUARE+OF+OPPOSITION%22&aq=f&aqi=g8g-m2&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=3453l14094l0l14797l22l22l0l0l0l0l235l3452l3.13.6l22l0&oi=image_result_group&sa=X  > BUT THE GRIDLINES OF THIS TABULAR LIST-FORMAT TRUTH-TABLE MATRIX-ANALYTICS, LOKING LIKE A TIC-TAC-TOE DIAGRAM DO NOT SHOW UP IO WORD-FOR-WINDOWS TABLES, SO IT IS SOMEWHAT CONFUSING. I USE SEMANTICS/LINGUISTICS TO LABEL DIFFERENT(THREE) COLUMNS AND FOUR-ROWS, WHICH IS WHY THIS IS "CATEGORY-SEMANTICS COGNITION" , "NEW" WAY TO ANALYZE PHYSICS AND INDED PURE-MATHEMATICS MODULO ARISTOTLE, FROM ~ 350 B.C.E.!!!

AND ONE CAN ADJOIN THESE DIAGRAMS GETTING TOPOLOGY-LIKE HOMOLOGY-COHOMOLOGY A LA GROTHENDIEK AND SHEAVES. BUT THAT IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT.

CATEGORY SEMANTICS IS ALSO PRACTICED BY JOHN BAEZ(MATHS/UC-RIVERSIDE) <  > BUT ON ABSTRACTIONS OF STRING-THEORY/COSMOLOGY/PURE-
MATHEMATICS/MATHEMATICAL-PHYSICS/...

It goes on much longer, but you get the idea...

------------------------------

Here is a much more typical example of a mail from someone who has some nonstandard ideas - just for comparison.

I have also addressed issues regarding spacetime, gravity, extra dimensions, dark matter and dark energy, quantum uncertainty etc.

1)      Space time is not continuous but discrete. Time stops and starts every 10-43s. Our universe is made up of countless number of minute space time nodes. When time stops, all the minute spacetime nodes combine to form one single space time node. This single spacetime node will be of the same size as that of the minute space time nodes.

2)      Apart from the four dimensions of spacetime, there is an alternate four dimensional spacetime continuum called invisible spacetime. Time dilation is the consequence of the time spent by the moving object in the invisible space time fabric, wherein the space dimension is active and the time dimension is zero.

3)      Gravity is the result of discrete space time. When all the matter in the universe occupy one single node and get distributed to their respective nodes and when the new time interval starts, a force of attraction exerts between the particles which is attractive.

4)      Quantum uncertainty is also the result of discrete space time. When t=0, all the particles is at the same place (same node) and when t≠0, particles occupy their individual positions. Each particle is equally valid of being at each and every point in the universe at the same time. Hence the exact location of the particle cannot be found out accurately. The interference pattern in the double slit experiment could be explained in the classical way using the concept of discrete spacetime.

5)      We do live in a 10 dimensional universe and each of us experience those dimensions. In total there are 7 dimensions of space and 3 dimensions of time. However space and time dimensions cannot exist independently and are always combined, in different ways.

6)      Dark energy is nothing but the dark matter which is embedded in the higher dimensions ( invisible spacetime) wherein the space dimension is active and the time dimension is zero. Since time dimension is zero, no events could occur and henceforth the matter in that spacetime is invisible. Dark matter is nothing but the dark matter which leaks to visible spacetime from the invisible spacetime.

From general relativity to quantum mechanics everything can be explained using the concept of discrete spacetime. I have attached the file below consisting a few pages. It would be very helpful if you could glance through the document and give your valuable comments regarding the subject.
