Pethuel: The revelators mention that at the time of the writing of the Papers, the ultimaton is yet to be discovered. Is there a possiblity that it has been discovered and given another name? Do any of these "new" particles fit TUB's description of the ultimaton? Let's take these question...

First of all, the prevailing concept of a "dimension" is a measurable aspect of Physics that is fully independent of any other aspect. The dimensions of time and space themselves do not say anything at all about what might be placed in them or what processes might be occurring. The 3 other...

You can regard the following and any further comments as a speculative work in progress. There would appear to be 7 physical dimensions that describe most or all of the phenomena known and measurable to us humans in this day and age: Dimension ......................... Units ...........................

Maybe what might help, at this point, would be to try to clarify what current Physics defines and what the revelators might be trying to tell us in specific detail, including mathematics. I'll spend some time on that after I'm past a current crunch period. In the meantime, here is a wonderful (but r...

Me: I have never seen the word "intension" used before, defined as the internal content of a concept . Domino Derval: "What sharp little eyes you have." James Bond 007: "Wait to you get to my teeth 8) " (The film "Thunderball" 1965) Me: Aha! I never noticed t...

Loved the reference to "dabblings" hahaha I am thinking of the old adage that "in order to discover new lands one must be willing to lose sight of the shore" and as overwhelming evidence points to the necessity of rethinking nearly everything I applaud any efforts to reject old ...

I think physicists of the day are slowly coming to grips with the "undifferentiated force blanket of all space". James Clerk Maxwell started the trend (with a proverbial bang) when he produced the series of equations that describe the response of the "undifferentiated force blanket of...

Me: Is De Broglie's rejection of the massless photon aligned with TUB?


I believe so. The TUB authors don't exactly state that a photon has mass. I suspect that their concept of mass is far more refined than ours 8)

But they clearly state that the photon has weight, right?

Me here: One demonstration that provoked a more recent discussion of light behaving as both a particle and wave (depending on the observer) provoked considerable thought. One Google reference states "Einstein was the first to explain what was happening. He theorized that electromagnetic energy...

It's difficult to judge the creativity aspect in music sometimes. Even one of the revelators characterized music as essentially being mathematics, right? But of course, only certain aspects of music are mathematical, essentially... Note choice, meter, tempo and rhythm are some of them. But even in t...

I think one very fair use of machine learning is to train the machine to learn your very own material. If you are composing sophisticated long classical pieces, for example, it can take very many long hours to compose and orchestrate. Many masterpieces were years in the making and conception process...

Hi Pethuel, That's a magnificent piece of lyrical art! Sometimes some of the finest songs begin with only the lyrics, possibly because, in many ways, musical parameters are more flexible than verbal expressions. If I were to develop this into music, I think I would read through it many times to try ...

The English - Inuktitut dictionary at https://glosbe.com/en/iu/mother lists both anaana and anâna as translations of the word mother. The root is obviously "an". The English - Inuttut dictionary at http://www.labradorvirtualmuseum.ca/english-inuttut.htm lists anânak as a translation. The E...

Holiday greetings! Could the following ideas be the missing pieces of the puzzle to really unravel the mystery here and start to shed light on an unrevealed item connected to the revelation? 1. Andon and Fonta's names for themselves are given to us: "Sonta-en" and Sonta-an". We are to...
