I never thought I would see the day When books looked superfluous. I saw, the day before yesterday, The world. I leapt about, from Japan, to Here, to Australia To Finland, To Italy. Like it was nothing. And I got deep Deep Into people What they were thinking and doing What they wanted and thought I might like. This is what a book Was supposed to be. But this was much better. I made up the plot, And I discovered the real story. All right there. Right then. And, Like the world, It would never repeat again. Oh. I really…

Very nice journalism on Elon Musk, SpaceX, and South Texas. Now for something completely different which, nevertheless, has a bit of Truth to it. Also, about The Man, his Dog, and Texas Truth.

Our Country is Saved!

Finally sanity.

Elon Musk tweeted “I bought a dog!” just before his mystery event yesterday at his space port in Texas.

He rolled up on the stage in his New Model S Tesla. Windows darkened, the rear door opened and out came Elon and a Boston Dynamics Spot Dog.

The Dog was not the one that had been seen at the Boca Chica Starbase facility helping clean up the various Rapid Unplanned Dissassemblies of SpaceX Starships..

It was a new one. It wiggled its behind in delight as Elon walked to the microphone.

“I have bought Boston Dynamics,” Elon…

Or Falling off the Social Cliff of Mendaciology

An interesting exercise for any lay person is to look at the order of precedence in how law is actually expressed in our lives.

What trumps what?

I think you know now why I am asking.

The reader should consider a game where groups of friends try ordering the modern lawscape for themselves.

Here is my order of the lawscape. This is how I see the law actually expressed in our lives today. It is not a pretty picture for justice, truth, and lies..

  1. Money (Money is king over the lawscape. …

Truth, Lies, and Absolute Evil

The Science of Lies, Truth, and thereby Evil is a Computational Cognitive Neuroscience. It tells us what Truth is, what are all the Lies, and why Evil is always with us, especially today. As a science it also tells us how, fundamentally, the Evil Machine inside of you and every other human being works, and can be held in check, and often used for Good.

Humans are unique in many ways, but certainly the most important way in terms of Evil is through whatever Language you naturally speak and understand.

Your natural language marries human communication with your human brain.

Review of Jeff Hawkins’ Thousand Brain Book

As someone who has been doing computational cognitive neuroscience for ten years before Jeff graduated from College, I have a thousand things to say but do not have the time for the two or three books to set his ship right.

But like all good ships, it is fundamentally a good ship. It is ignorant of a lot that we do know, and I fear people will think some of his hubris, the fouled settings of his sails, will be missed by many of his readers.

His first book also had a dash too much hubris. “On Intelligence” made insane…

Factoid: Ion Channels: The cells on opposite sides of a symmetry (in left and right hand for instance) are thought to synchronize by Ion Channels through the body cells. Certain cells literally supercharge their Ion Channels: also called "synapses" in neural cells. The brain.

So your brain is really just an evolutionary exercise and keeping left and right approximately balanced. The same ion channels work for symmetry in leafy vegetables and, indeed, worms. So your brain is really just a mutant leaf. Who knew!

It is everything, and nothing much..

The Science of Lies, Mendaciology, is a computational cognitive neuroscience. It assumes that human natural language is the best view into how one neocortex communicates with another. The is precisely because this is exactly what Human Natural Language was evolved to be. There is nothing comparable.

Unfortunately, in some sense, it is too easy and very few cognitive neuroscientists have delved deeply into linguistics. They just think of natural language as some kind of Skinner conditioning that is nothing more complicated than the learning by a rat.

Furthermore, they do not believe that the most revealing aspects seem to be…

Do NOT forget the CAUSE!

The main theme of George Washington’s Farewell Address to US can be summarized quite succinctly:

  1. Extremes of Party (in our case right or left), MOTIVATED BY REVENGE, lead to LIES.
  2. If ALLOWED, the LIES will be employed to OBSTRUCT the Constitutional PROCESSES laid out as written in LAW and established in norms, and we will, INEVITABLY LOSE OUR LIBERTY.

So, in sum. Don’t allow the lies and don’t vote for liars.

He was telling us to tell the liars seeking revenge to accept the law and if they want new laws to get revenge, follow the Constitution in both word…

Some Serious Problems

The Honore Capital 1/6 Report is quite excellent and could be used as instruction on how to correctly modernize security for the Capitol. Everyone should read it so when they repair the deficiencies, you will be able to trust security while still being open to US to visit and legislators to do their jobs. It is short enough and very clear.

That said, there are missing sections. And everyone should clearly understand they are missing. Here they are:

  1. There MUST be a classified companion document that stipulates other requirements. For example, there is a missing section on safe paths…
