Ok whomever you are, where is the real, John Clark and what have you done with him?!!!  ;-D

I've been a subscriber to your magazine for over half a century but after reading the shameful article by Monica R. McLemore disparaging the memory of a great scientists like E.O. Wilson just days after his death, I kept asking myself two questions:

1)  Why couldn't Scientific American find somebody smarter than Monica R. McLemore to write for them, at least somebody smart enough to know what a statistical normal distribution is?

2) Why do I continue my subscription to Scientific American?

   Rather, “whomever you are, where is the real, Spudboy?” Why this anonymity?

    When will WAMP-The-Ingrate [Western Acade-Meidia Pagan (ism)] wake up to the real world of ordinary people? When will their un-awakened (un-Augustinian, https://www.midwestaugustinians.org/conversion-of-st-augustine) pagan consciousness shed forth their Marxist-Socialist-Fascist pagan WOKENESS? Will they ever be awakened at all? They are the stealing beneficiaries of the Augustinian Trust!!!

Well, if I understand you correctly, it appears that the progressive-left seems to be hanging on to power despite the loss of the identified body-politic, independent voters. So, in this fashion, Joe and Kamala have misread the political room. Never, fear, so did Orange Man before him. A nationalist president will fare better against Chinese Communist Party, military and economic aggression, by Comrade Xi for example. Speaking of China, it appears that Covid had eaten up orange man's presidency and is now consuming Joe's administration. 


Hope that answers your question?

  “You have no idea how foolish men look to the gods, they've got science jumping like a cat on a hot tin roof. Dark and Light together.”

[Philip Benjamin]

Dark energy is a hypothesized unknown form of energy  permeating all of space, tending to accelerate the expansion of the universe. Dark matter is measurable as the difference between gravitational and optical mass measurements.

   Attributing mystical force to hypothetical dark energy may or may not be true. Someone has to bring that issue and observational scrutiny in scientific terms and analysis. 

  The Sorli experiment on “Additional Mass” may indicate the presence of bio-dark-matter.  The only useful way to trat bio dark-matter is through possible bio dark-matter chemical bonds and its “computational chemistries”. An order of magnitude difference in biophoton emission rates across the taxa is another indication of interaction between dark and light matter chemical bonds, which is explorable (with cells at different stages of development or conditions of health) . There is nothing mystical about that. Resonance between dark and light matter twins from the moment of conception is a physical, not metaphysical, phenomena.      

     Western Civilization is (at least was) not based on how people created gods and “looked to them”. The Greco-Roman pagan “unknown god” was identified as the Risen Messiah in the Athenian Discourse by an Apostle. Here the revelation is from Adonai to humans—through direct Patriarchal, Prophetic and Apostolic Revelations. Augustine gave up his scholarship Neo-Platonism to further such expositions after a personal “transformation” which according to him in no mistaken terms is an “alien” influence through the Reveled Scriptures.  Europe thus became very unique (once upon a time!) from the rest of the world. The world as a whole today is becoming increasingly under Marxist-Socialist-Fascist dogmas with its utopian dictates and mandates—a total failure wherever it was tried. Either one be a conformist to it or be a non-conformist. There is no other choice. WAMP-the-Ingrate is the most resourceful peddler of these notions.

Dear Philip,

 

I used the word energy. Dark energy - some of which is ordered and thus is Spirit and some of which is not ordered and is thus Kaos [with a K] meaning not ordered.

 

Ordered energy is 'programmed energy' it can display whatever properties it wants . It can make people appear incredibly heavy or allow them to levitate, it can heal, it can make them very sick, it can materialise and dematerialise. Apport.

 

If you allow a function to manifest, people can smell like dogs, or play the piano like a maestro, or plunge their fists in boiling oil without being burnt, or pick up burning coals or walk on lava.

 

How many more examples do I have to give before people cotton on to the fact that there are trillions of functions, the vast majority of which are suppressed depending on the species and destiny.

 

Illusionists are called that because it is all an illusion maya. All they need to do is to tap into the illusion, and they can do most things. A magician is the most skilled of all because he has control of which functions he chooses to demonstrate. He can walk on water, change the weather. Start nuclear reactors rumbling.

 

I've done my best to explain, given examples, repeated stuff just to try to get people to at least understand. But, no, I have failed.

 

So another war will no doubt materialise and men in their millions will die, because the objective of all wars is to remove all those not needed for breeding, who are not in line with the plan. And the plan is new functions, for all sorts of species.

 

Let's see if we can make an elephant fly. They play with all the species, so maybe there will be a Planet of the apes or a day of the Triffids. It's all a game to them. Dinosaurs just got boring so they were wiped out.

 

You have no idea how foolish men look to the gods, they've got science jumping like a cat on a hot tin roof. Dark and Light together.

Hi, Rosie: Dark-matter is “MATTER”. It was detected first as the disparity between gravitational and optical mass measurements. Dark-matter has mass. It is not electric. There is no such requirement that all “MATTER” should be electrical. Philip
