One person’s discoveries and insights from the fractal. An (amateurs) attempt to decipher the fractal, working towards a (possible) theory of knowledge. An ever developing, ever growing, work in progress.
The Denomination Standard (as opposed to the 'gold standard'): regularity in currency through time and place.
A unit of gold is said to (give and take a little) buy the same good through time - hence the gold standard. My hypothesis is: does the denomination 'size' of fiat money (currency) buy the same goods (opposed to the nominal size which will differ from time to time, place to place). How many of the lowest paper notes does it take to buy 'x' good - my case a big mac. I have found that in the developed world it costs generally around 2 of the lowest denomination notes for a McDonald's Big Mac (2012). Of course the amount grows the less developed the country - Sri Lanka 29. I conclude there maybe a 'standard note' (thank you to my student Paul) that will stand like a 'standing wave' over time and place; nominal prices will flow (rise) through it. Difficult to find a standard good, and there are lag times of course as note stay in circulation for some time in stable economies. You may ask what that has to do with fractals: well fractals share a feature - regular irregularity (same but different) at all scales. For money, the regular is the note or the coin. The irregular is the nominal size of the note or coin, or the country it is from, or the colour and so on...
I will soon publish a table of my Big Mac standard note.
Inflation through time - and the standard note.
The test will be: does the standard note hold through time with inflation? My survey of the US dollar says not exactly. But here the inflation has been rather slow compared to the the countries with hyper inflation. I wonder if in Zimbabwe dollar note size bought the same (amount) of good through there time of hyper inflation? Update:
A momentous morning for me. As Copernicus and Galileo as my
inspirers, and after (this morning) uncovering and clearing some critical
details, I’m now not afraid any more – to speak, to show. Last month I
published on my blog two entries I had been working on for last 5 years: one on the fractal record of CO2, and
the other on the fractal profile of CO2 (still in progress).
This morning I published a complementary
‘wiki website (www.wikifractal.org) to
these entries that will show and democratise ‘the where(?)’ (the examples of a
phenomena – at all scales) (or not!). Where does a phenomena do as it is ‘said’
to do? Orbiting bodies and a sun centred ‘universe’ is a good case: before the
telescope and evidence, a world of dogma; and after, a world of ‘science’. With
the Hubble and (broken) Kepler telescopes we are now seeing orbiting bodies wherever
Wikifractal will reveal ‘the said’ CO2
properties (heat trapping) and the instances of a heat relationship – do not
repeat, anywhere; that the experiments and demonstrations used to prove CO2 is
a heat trapping gas are wrong, and make up what is (using the words of Richard
Dawkins) the greatest magic show on Earth and of all time.
Wikifractal.org aims to reveal the (true) shape – or fractal structure – of knowledge claims. It is an instrument: as a compass is to navigation, a tuning-fork to a musician – it is a truth detector.
Where Wikipedia.org deals with the what? and the how? (definitions and the like), Wikifractal.org deals with 'the where?' – the evidence, and the examples (of 'the what').The aim of Wikifractal.org is not necessarily to show proof of a knowledge claims, but rather, show that there is no proof, shape, or repetition to the claim. It aims to falsify, to clarify claims for all to see, for all to get the picture.By allowing the public to log the repeating presence (or not) of a said claim, and accumulating these logged cases at the claims different scales, a (fractal) shape of knowledge of the claim will develop (or not). If not, the claim is false. If yes when not expected, then the claim will be understood by all. What Wikifractal will shows is the 'claims' fractal record, its tree of occurrence –the ‘different’ occurrences of the 'same' knowledge claim. The fractal record – like the fossil record that inspired its name – will help expose the shape of the claim, not through time (though it may) as in the fossil record, but through the present, the now.
Wikifractal.org uses mathematicalinsights found in the fractal(what a termed 'the Laws of Knowledge'–uncovered atfractalnomics.comby wikifractals creator. As an example (insight)–
(scientific) phenomema have fractal structure, they repeat– inthe 'same', but ‘different’ way, at all (relevant) scales;order among the chaos.
this is to sayif something not fractal - or it does not repeat - it either surreal or myth.
viewing an object phenomena (or claim) when it is in a state ofceteris paribus– a monotonic environment, absent of any other fractal objects – truth and thus knowledge can be determined from the shape , but the scale or size of that object (or claim) cannot be discerned.moon image
Religion, an emergent structure formed from the life force survival
far from being only interesting images, and complex mathematics, is also (as I
am discovering) an instrument of great insight: one that I am finding complements
science, and its ‘mission’ to understand and explain the workings of the universe. In this blog
(fractalnomics) I have been attempting to decipher and understand this
instrument: from classical economics, to evolution, on quantum mechanics, and the
expanding universe the fractal has not yet failed – with its insight. Could it
also help us explain and understand other more humanistic issues too, the likes
of religion? The answer – I find – is yes.
To share my findings I aim to publish a series of entries, three entries on these fractal insights, and three on direct applications in science. In this first entry, I will show that religion is an emergent phenomena formed as a result of the life force we call survival; in the second I shall go on to explain that the religious nature is innate – is part of us – and repeats in the (modern day) secular world, science, and even atheism; and in the third entry I will reveal the fractal as a source or instrument of direct (scientific) truth.
In this entry I aim to
analyse the properties of CO2 (in relation to the climate) – and demonstrate the
fractality (the repeating) of this knowledge and properties. Does (heat trapping) CO2 shape up to our general knowledge, and 'laws' of physics. I am not an expert, but am curious to investigate.
Heat trapping - Specific Heat Capacity
Infrared Opaqueness and Transparency
Lags: Does CO2 drive temperature - or does Temperature drive CO2?
5 (of 6) The Fractal Record of heat trapping CO2 I have been working on this entry - totally on my own - for some 5 years, you should be able to tell this from the my style of writing. Someday I will find an editor. To date the fractal has expanded my world, and has lead me to insights on economics, 'quantum mechanics' and the expanding universe. I have been writing my discoveries in this blog, but it is this entry on the issue of the climate (the last in a series of 4 or 5 on truth and the fractal) that is by far more interesting to me. I have now published a wiki website: www.wikifractal.org/ to help democratise the science- Abstract
This is a study to identify where CO2 traps heat in the everyday world, as it is said to do. The 'fractal record' shows that there is no (at least at a level to be measurable or dangerous) evidence (or examples) to support the argument CO2 traps heat. Aims
To develop the fractal (record) as an instrument of reason.
To end carbon-climate debate. Introduction
The fractal record should help settle the deductive argument (set by carbon-climatology) and show the truth and real relationship between heat and CO2. CO2 and infrared heat are next to ubiquitous (at least) on Earth: in this entry I shall (crudely, as I am not an expert) identify and analyse the occurrences where the two (heat and CO2) are present and should point to truth. If CO2 traps heat, and is the cause of climate change – it should also be the cause of, and form part of our general understanding of the below:
weather forcasting, the (micro atmosphere)
why (heat trapping) CO2 is not part of a market solution.
The fractal record?
The fractal record is directly inspired by the fossil record of life: itaims to show a record of instances or examples of a said rule or object (at all different scales or places) – in this case CO2’s said heat trapping property (of carbon-climatology). It will show us (or not) if and where the premise repeats in nature; and reveal the expected (or 'inferred') effect the said gas has on temperature and (should have) on its surrounding environment – given our understanding of the premise.
I could have equally developed a fractal record on the premise of orbiting bodies, but that would not be so interesting – at least today in the 21 Century – to demonstrate the fractal.
In the previous entry 'the CO2 profile' I show that the premise 'CO2 is a heat trapping (greenhouse) gas' is mis-interpreted. It may - compared to the vaccum of space - trap heat, but nothing like water. It is nothing special, only typical.
Tomorrow (Friday 15, 3, 2013) the school and program I am working at (IB ybc Stockholm Sweden) will have a visitor: Cosmologist Lawrence Krauss is coming to lecture, and be with our student's. What a wonderful thing. But for me, since I have know this coming, it has been very disturbing - as I am hoping to get time with him to pitch my discoveries. And I know if I do, and he 'gets it' that things will change.
I am a concerned that as I have not officially published then my work, but am in the process of doing so, I will be giving my knowledge to an expert who can produce paper and publish very quickly, and take the credit. So I am writing this entry to expose this concern. But I have little choice: before I knew he was coming, I was at an end, near breakdown: I could not go any further on the topic of the expanding fractal and it relevance to quantum mechanics, expanding universe, dark energy and so on.. as it is too much for one person, I need support, I need an ego massage. My health is not good for this stuff. So I am hoping for the best tomorrow.
Today, in my economics class, I showed my student's what I am going to present Lawrence, and the got it in 20 minutes - amazing. One of the students who said he had been following this topic for years, had tears in his eye, and was moved.
So if it doesn't work for Lawrence, I will produce a lecture, and publish it on youtube, because I am tired of searching for help.
As of now, 15:30 Thursday, I know not if I will get to see him: the organiser has sent him two of my links - one on quantum and the fractal, and one on the expanding fractal - but I know not if he has seen them.
I don't want to be a dork! And push it on him, I would like him to see what I have done.
Tomorrow is a special day.
The fact of the matter is: if we do meet, and I get the message to him, he will never do his speech in the same way again.
To me, all the lectures on youtube, on the subject, are boring, and are out dated.
