I like to be on TV!!
I think it’s now a great chance for us to evaluate the consequences of building a spacewarp-maker machine (or time machine, if you wish; however at the moment I think causality violation is impossible) in a near future. The Einstein did efforts at the last years of his life to make ordinary people and politicians noticed of the dangers of A-bombs which he had a basic role to invent them through his special relativity theory. Therefore, I would like to do a similar action, however there are main differences: First, I’m going to do it BEFORE realizing my plan, so fortunately we’re able to control it and prevent possible catastrophes, Second: a world without serious physical distances is much more impressing than a world having H-bombs, A-bombs, and other mass killing weapons.
My aim of mentioning the Windows & Linux was stating the possible choices. Like the open-source movement, my plan might be dealt with as the “final cure” of removing the problems of the earth. More specifically, I would have liked to be an advisor for the UNO to direct this project with the help all countries, like the SETI@HOME project to find intelligent aliens. Growing this technology under a global consideration could minimize the awful byproducts.
It’s a dreamy picture, but the other scenario is establishing a company which would cause a cartel and a brand-new market and improving it in practice; like all the great inventions: car, ship, plane, phone, computer, etc. Besides, I’m 23 and allow me to say I think your opinion is a bit conservative and pessimistic. Birth of every significant technology always causes side-effects and many jobs have come and gone along the history of the civilization. Maybe we could pass this critical point and upgrade ourselves to an incredible level by colonizing other stellar systems and extracting endless amounts of the starts and other masses of the universe, or maybe we’d destroy everything like the fate of ancient continent of Atlantis.
You’re right, it can embarrass everything (i.e., spacetime shortcuts, not time machines, e.g., click here: http://www.physics.wustl.edu/~visser/wormh...arp-drives.pdf)
, however there are interpretations giving interesting insights; for example see this: http://arxiv.org/abs/physics/0512062
But really who knows? Maybe we’re placed between the last generation of this kind of known species called humans and a higher version, discussed in UFO mythology.
There are huge challenges in front of us. What would happen if such finding be realized in a non-democratic country with psychotic leaders? That certainly is going to happen if I couldn’t be out of here.
By the way, I’ve not written a book, it’s a 7-pages paper, set to be smoothly understood by a wide numbers of experts.
P.S.: I was going to say more, but my mental situation is not good, however looking at this dialog between me and a dear friend clarifies the situation. (Sorry for being long)
I would like to tell you my beliefs about God. What is God? Does it (I use this pronoun because God in my mind has no gender, actually there is no gender difference in Persian language) exist? If so, what are its characters? These are important and profound questions. I am not aware of your possible religious trends; evangelist or protestant? catholic or orthodox? Spiritualist or Jewish? A member of a special cult, follower of a religion of the East (South) Asia (i.e., Buddhism, Hinduism, …) which do not have a definite imagination of “one” higher force as the uni-God religions of Christianity, Judaism, or Islam have? Theist or Atheist at all? I do not know; but I ask you what really is God? Have you ever thought about it? I “think” God exists, however the hardship and smashes I’ve received, receive now, and will receive in the future have made me conservative to consider something as my “faith” and say it with sufficient confidence to people but myself. For the universe we live in, there has to be a God and there certainly is a higher existent. We could discuss on our theologies for a long time, but the main question is: What does that belief have to do with us? Shall God interfere to realize an occurrence which is going to increase the goodness, harmony and beauty of the present world? How can people ask it to help them to have the most pleasure/least grief, both physically and mentally, as their instinctive conscience say them, during their short lifetimes on this planet? What is the role of God when materially surviving is everything, and what about its role when there are further involving factors? What is the relationship among God and the feelings of eternity, love and fear of death inside us? Which of them do have more share of the truth: ancient gods, myths, science and its fruit modern technology, philosophy, gnosticism or pure materialism? Is there any truth at all? What is its definition? How can we use of such knowledge before ending our deadline and pass away of this world? These are my primary questions, how about you man? How would be compensating the things I’ve experienced in my life in the afterworld? What would God tell me, when I stand in front of it? How much I’ve been a favorite of Satan? When I look to my inside infant, how can I feel pleasant and how God does drive me, like a sage or mad? Pray I could reach to correct answers.
What is God is a great question.
I don't know. How do I as a finite mortal dare cto omprehend the infinite? It is like being one dimensional in a three-dimensional world or telling a woman that I totally understand the pains she goes through with giving birth to new life. I really do not know what I am talking about...
I was surprised you did not include the Muslim faith in your dialogue. I am a Christian and on occassion God plays around with my destiny and blocks my plans for purposes that I do not know nor understand. A man would be truly wise if they understood why. Because I don't, maybe I am not as wise as I thought I was? For example, I am pleased when my heart beats a normal rhthym, when I can draw fresh breath into my lungs, or see a beautiful sunset.
I don't pretend to understand your problems but can only reflect back to the things in my own life or when somebody tried very hard to take away my life. There is an important set of Christian sayings that I want to pass on to you. No, its not Ezikiel's wheel from the old testament which tends to describe a modern day UFO obduction.
That is, and I tell my grown children this: "One door closes, and another opens". What looks really bad today may yield a bright sunshine tomorrow! There is always hope...
The other is the story of the parable where a stern master gives one servant one talent, a second five, and a third ten before he departs on a trip. On his return, he sees the three servants and the one with ten mentioned that he invested the money in the market place and doubled the master's money. The master said he was a good and faithful servant and put him in charge of ten cities.
To the one with five, he too invested the money in the market place and doubled it. The master also praised him as well and put him in charge of five cities.
To the one with a single talent, the man replied that he knows the master is a harsh man and was afraid of losing the money so he buried it and he only has one talent. The master said give the money to the servant with ten and depart from me forever.
When we face God, how do we know how many talents he gave us? Are we to not use our God-given talents to the maximum extent possible? If so, what would happen if we only showed God one talent? What if we gave him ten when he only gave us one to start with?
How many talents has God given you?
Remember, one door closes and another opens. I have to tell you that there is nothing more that one human being can do for another that I have not done for you and I have failed. I do not want to tell you how high I went up in the State Department but I have gotten no where.
There must be a reason for all of this and maybe this is part of God's plan for you as well as to teach me not to be so arrogant... with me, God may have failed as well! I have no idea what may become of you. You may be somebody very special so above all else, do not despair and always surround yourself with positive thoughts. If some one beats you up, get up off off the ground and ask if that is the best they have to hurt you?
There is a reason for everything and everything in God's good time and place of his choosing. As long as you can draw breath and breathe, keep up your work and something will happen... It just has to. Maybe not today but maybe tommorrow...
Sub: … it’s getting an unforgettable dialog!
Based on the people who believe in God, it certainly is (i.e., at least one of its properties) a field of positive energy, surely not exactly in physical meaning but there are similarities. As you know, the field is a hypothetical concept in physics, but is very useful to explain the phenomena we observe in the lab and analyze by mathematical formulas. Therefore, generalizing that idea, it is possible for us to attribute every (good) occurrence to a field of (positive) energy (look to the Greek roots of that word: en+ergia= at work). By that definition, to answer the question why this good God allows the presence of badness in this world as we perceive, perhaps we should pick up an appropriate reference frame, like what we do in physics to simplify the equations! Very surprisingly, the project I’m involved, has many correspondences to this kind of interpretation from God and metaphysical orders, generally. Maybe one says as kidding, if you imagine God as a field of positive energy, you’ve probably sold you soul to Satan by working on the negative energy! which might cause to anomalies like breaking the rules of this world we’ve used to them from the birth, like entropy increase regularized by the second law of thermodynamics or natural procedure of happening the things which needs a reconsideration after tightening the principles of a closed timelike curve. Yes, they seem Satanic issues with the potential to destroy many things, but it’s just one side of the coin. The other side is the role of will of us, humans, to how to encounter them. You see? It’s completely dependent to us and nothing else matters so deterministically. Don’t believe the science fiction stories on the domination of the machines on the humans, it is impossible; do you know why? Because any loser must search the reasons of defeat inside him/herself at first. If we forget our clean roots and just sit and watch, the devil forces would do their job. Thus everything is so obvious: we may see the conservation law in all the possible subjects and a simplified form as a lesson for life as you say: ”One door closes, and another opens”. The only remaining thing is the problem of time. We see the realization of this principle toward any action. Not right now? Never mind! Two hours later, two days, weeks, or years later or afterworld, or wait a minute please, maybe two hours before the required reply has been done, or even two or ten years ago (don’t make a mistake, I don’t go more backward than the birth, no previous lives as the believers to Metempsychosis say). As a similar example in wormhole discussion, I was told my theory violates the Bianchi identities on conservation of energy in General Relativity and then is impossible, but the main point is, the dynamism is the inevitable core of that configuration. I mean the spacetime might permit such deformations for a definite time, but that certainly would enforce the compensation mechanisms (i.g., Hawking radiation in the close case of black holes). You know man, I’ve accepted this feeling of justice as a law in this world, I’m not aware of other worlds, maybe if there is a multi-verse, there are other (parallel?) universes with other set ups, say the light velocity comparable to moving of an ant and achievable relativistic effects, or higher dimensional creatures which we 3-dimensional existents cannot understand them at all, etc. But the rule of this world is so and seemingly one cannot do something different, and if really is determined, come on, go ahead! but with just one constraint: don’t hurt other or oneself and the boundaries of that “hurting” is specified by the usage. People who have severely crossed that line are findable in the lunatic asylums or the cemeteries! (no insult is my meaning, just another style of your own comment: human as “a finite mortal”).
You surprised by not observing any Muslim faith in my email. How can I defend of the instructions of I’ve grown up with them, when I think many of them need basic modifications? How can I defend of many verses of Qur’an when I understand me and generally any normal man who the life (not only staying alive!) of humans is valuable in his/her eyes, cannot accept them?
When I see the permanent deathful conflicts in this cursed region of the earth where some fundamentalists behead others with the name of Allah and others target the innocent kids by the multi-tons bombs and I watch those movies and find a fucked up feeling and lose my desire to life, how should I think about these people and what would be my viewpoint to their related theisms? Does one have to kill others to reach to his God sooner or make it happier? I know pathetic feelings and nervous fluctuations don’t improve anything, but give that right to me to have a special judgment on ultra-concepts; I surely haven’t invented them and all we are being impressed by our surroundings.
Obviously Islamic world needs a fundamental movement like Protestantism, and remember the Europe dealt with religious reforming before the other jumps in politics, culture and science.
You asked about my talents. I surely have many talents, but I thought accomplishing the idea of physical distance reduction by a practical spacewarp is the best possible thing I could do and my pattern was Bill Gates. He could change the world of personal computers and made so much money to become the biggest charity donator to reduce poverty or cure diseases like AIDS. Mimicking him, I was going to create a novel cartel and become so much rich on this planet to have no economical problem on my projects to colonize other planets, but maybe I’d better to forget your country and seriously think about other countries as I once said you. (However, let’s not talk about misbehavior of Administration of Immigration agents to Iranians and the ability to deport them and invalidate the visa in any possible stage) If they don’t want me as a theorist and my ability to design simple web pages is more attractive to them, logically I’d be obligated to obey more various orders like changing my Arabic name, announcing my support of the Zionism in a manner more catholic than Pope, or swearing to adjust my activities on the condition of keeping the military and economical dominance of the America forever! I wonder what do they want? Do they love to see the dead Einstein would raise from the grave (however, his body was burnt) and shout: Hey! I’m him! Give my visa soon! Is that what they want? If they want to give me visa, it means nobody else in the world has been able to practically show the scientific capabilities that I have. Tell them to find errors in my paper and draft, if they dare! So if we're enough determined, we should not wait to see other deathful madness to worsen the orders
Although, nothing has happened to me yet, but I ethically have to say I don’t know how can I say my thank to you for the works you did to me, but let me say: Hey man! What’s happened to you? Your value is much more than insisting to blind morons of the State Department or any other hell. Yes, not to be arrogant is very nice, but nothing deserves to you and any other wise man be irked by a stupid who is placed in a wrong position and does not know (or indeed, can’t) how to logically behave to others who know something that he doesn’t know.
I repeated some times that I’m burning in a hell, but you know very well how much it’s simple for me to convert that hell to a heaven to myself. The only thing is taking a similar way that Dr. Abdolghadir Khan passed in Pakistan to become the national hero and away from any question, foreign inspecting or interview by the direct command of the President. Now he has everything he needs from the wealth and equipments. But the question is what’s been the price of this artificial heaven for him? I tell you: making a real potential hell for more than one billion and several hundreds millions of the people of Pakistan, India, and probably neighbor countries. He helped to create a military balance, but the nightmare of a nuclear war is the every night dream of many people in the politically unstable region of around there. I should inform you recently one of my relatives (their viewpoint has changed to me since releasing my interview to Tim), made a contact to a guy working in the Defense Department of Iran and said about me, of course somehow vaguely, then that guy proposed him he’s able to launch a meeting and I could explain my idea to the military strategists in a speech. Besides, that guy has tight bounds and friendships to some (previously) armed Shiite groups acting in Iraq. His dialog to my relative resulted in giving a phone number and I’d announce my interest to speech if I’d wish. You see? I could be an incredible ace and needless to wealth, if I’d be at the service of this killer regime, and there would be less shame for me before any sleeping, because I’d say myself nobody in the good West!? said welcome to me. I know that heaven would be more unstable than one in a free society, but when the people ask themselves about the gained share in the life, the dangers for others is usually ignored.
Anyway, sorry for much talking (typing, in fact!), hoping to no terrible scenario would be realized and I’d be so alive to receive your critics on my draft, and probably tell you about the relation between this quote of Napoleon and the exuberance in me: “There always is a woman behind any huge task!”
On my way to catch a plane. Will be gone for several days. Did not read your entire message. Sounds like what I recieved from a dear friend Dyatlov from Novosibirsk before he passed away...
