Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time?

This idea that nature is inherently probabilistic — that particles have no hard properties, only likelihoods, until they are observed — is directly implied by the standard equations of quantum mechanics. But now a set of surprising experiments with fluids has revived old skepticism about that worldview. The bizarre results are fueling interest in an almost forgotten version of quantum mechanics, one that never gave up the idea of a single, concrete reality. The experiments involve an oil droplet that bounces along the surface of a liquid. The droplet gently sloshes the liquid with every bounce. At the same time, ripples from past bounces affect its course. The droplet’s interaction with its own ripples, which form what’s known as a pilot wave, causes it to exhibit behaviors previously thought to be … Read entire article »

The Citizine Community Political Forum was a Success

  Monday night was the most fun I’ve had since I saw Scott Horton debate and defeat war-monger Harvey Kushner.   Scott Horton, at my request, moderated a community political forum organized by good friend Thom White (publisher of CitizineMag) and featuring some of my favorite local political friends from several different political parties.   It was GREAT! Of course it helps that it was in a cool Austin setting; a place called Spiderhouse just off the main UT Drag. Access to beer during political events like this is a necessity.   Anyway … the reviews are in … below are some of the local media’s take on the event. Video to follow soon. … Read entire article »

Cop UFO Case ReViewed or ReRun

Last Wednesday (9/17/08) I got an email from a friend about an incredible multiwitness UFO event she’d read about on Yahoo news site that disappeared within a half hour of her watching the video news article. The sighting she described amounted to the possibility of yet another strange UFO event involving multiple police officers as witnesses in the same areas of Illinois as the famous Lebanon, Millstadt, Shiloh triangular UFO sightings that occurred back in January of 2000. UFO story and video immediately retracted this AM I’m a a night owl, and often on the internet in the wee hours. This AM early, before I went to bed, I saw a news story in the short list of headlines on the Yahoo! page. It had not been there more than 20 mins or … Read entire article »

CASTRO and JFK: Plot and Counterplot

By Kenn Thomas After Fidel Castro stepped down as Cuban dictator, CNN’s post on the fanciful US assassination plots against him included the following: Project Amlash-Rolando Cubela. Cubela, whose code name was Amlash, was a member of Castro’s inner circle from the beginning. He had become disenchanted and made contact with the CIA as early as 1961. Nestor Sanchez, his CIA case officer, was meeting with Cubela in Paris when President Kennedy was killed in Dallas, Texas, November 22, 1963. Sanchez provided Cubela that day — at Cubela’s request — a poison pen-syringe to be used either on Castro or on himself, in case of a failed attempt. Nothing happened. As CIA covert operations against Castro began winding down, the Agency put Cubela in touch with Manuel Artime, the exiled chief … Read entire article »
