Zeno's paradoxes Zeno's arguments are perhaps the first examples of a method of proof called reductio ad absurdum also known as proof by contradiction. They are also credited as a source of the dialectic method used by Socrates. Some mathematicians and historians, such as Carl Boyer, hold that Zeno's paradoxes are simply mathematical problems, for which modern calculus provides a mathematical solution. Some philosophers, however, say that Zeno's paradoxes and their variations (see Thomson's lamp) remain relevant metaphysical problems. The origins of the paradoxes are somewhat unclear. Diogenes Laertius, a fourth source for information about Zeno and his teachings, citing Favorinus, says that Zeno's teacher Parmenides was the first to introduce the Achilles and the tortoise paradox. Paradoxes of motion Achilles and the tortoise Distance vs. time, assuming the tortoise to run at Achilles' half speed Dichotomy paradox Suppose Homer wants to catch a stationary bus.
untitled untitled Is the Universe a Computer? New Evidence Emerges. I haven’t posted in a while, but this is blog-worthy material. I’ve recently become familiar with the thinking of University of Maryland physicist, James Gates Jr. Dr. Gates is working on a branch of physics called supersymmetry. In the process of his work he’s discovered the presence of what appear to resemble a form of computer code, called error correcting codes, embedded within, or resulting from, the equations of supersymmetry that describe fundamental particles. You can read a non-technical description of what Dr. In the article, Gates asks, “How could we discover whether we live inside a Matrix? Gates explains, “This unsuspected connection suggests that these codes may be ubiquitous in nature, and could even be embedded in the essence of reality. Why are these codes hidden in the laws of fundamental particles? If you want to explore further, here is a Youtube video by someone who is interested in popularizing Dr. Now why does this discovery matter? The work of Dr.
Violet Flame Meditation - Transmute And Uplift Your Energy Field With Violet Flame Meditation you can consciously access powerful Fifth Dimensional frequencies that dissolve lifetimes of unresolved, unhealed energies with love and light. This is crucial to each of us as individuals and for humanity as a whole, especially at this specific time on our planet. The distillation of all experiences we’ve ever had in any lifetime or dimension is still in our individual and group energy field, both positive and negative. Until the dense negativity is transmuted into love and light, we, both as individuals and as a race, suffer from the resulting chaos and negativity that we’ve experienced for eons on this planet. Violet Flame Meditation can help us do that. The Fifth Dimensional Perspective The power of Violet Flame Meditation comes from the Fifth Dimension, which resonates with unity consciousness, transcending the ego-based ideas of separation we have lived in the Third Dimension for eons. Space and distance are also seen as illusions. Law Of The Circle
Deception on the Spiritual Path By Openhand Contributing Writer for Wake Up World It’s so easy to create illusionary realities on the path. Subtle essences of ego know how the soul is likely to act in particular circumstances. The danger of identity For some its hard to imagine I know, that in the ‘Matrix’ field all around us, there are deceptive energies that are collectively called an Opposing Consciousness. It’s purpose is to create fixed eddy currents of limiting behaviour, attachments that generate filters: such as thoughts, feelings and emotions, that play through our field, which we then create realities around. The soul doesn’t need fixed identities – especially spiritual ones. The Matrix – a complex weave of frequencies In society we’ve become so used to the ‘Matrix’. There are two key frequencies that it ‘plays': one some call ‘false love and light’ and the other, I call ‘the raptor consciousness’. The ‘raptor consciousness’ is all about consumption.

The Singularly Most Important Thing After Waking Up By Openhand Contributing Writer for Wake Up World Okay it’s a bold title. Just like a movie So maybe you’re in a challenging relationship situation. The outer world is a reflection of the inner. This is of course exactly how the infamous Law of Attraction works. Not as sexy as manifesting your desires? No it’s not as sexy as ‘manifesting your desires’. The point is you have a destiny, a destined way of being, and the universe will work tirelessly to help you unveil this. So how might you work on yourself in this unglamorous way? Firstly it’s to totally and utterly accept that every situation and circumstance you find yourself in was created by you.In the beginning, not to try to change it with some intention or purposeful avoidance; not to try and create some alternative reality.Accept it totally and ask “What is this situation revealing to me?” Nothing else going on Now I’m not telling you this is easy. And in any case, there is nothing else going on! Open (Chris Bourne) About the author:
ET Intervention on Earth (Part 1): An Interdimensional Opposing Consciousness Gaia's shift of consciousness into the Fifth Density has been timed not just for earth's continued evolution, but also to deal with an Opposing Consciousness that has intervened in the natural evolutionary path of the planet. Now, as humanity's awakening accelerates, the lid is beginning to lift on this Intervention. Although souls will still be sensitive to what has previously been a taboo subject, 'disclosure' is now beginning to happen. The Original Mistake Are we alone in the universe? We live on a relatively small planet, in a relatively small solar system, within a relatively small galaxy; a galaxy that has billions of solar systems; one which exists in a universe that is teaming with galaxies; a universe of multiple dimensions. For many of us expanding into multiple dimensions the debate has long since ended. What is its agenda, and where did it come from? Connection with Benevolent Consciousness has drawn my attention to what I call 'the original mistake'. Energy implants
