The fractal record of (heat trapping) CO2

Image
Update 2015 05 04 I have discovered why CO2 is not a special heat trapping gas:  Reinterpreting-John-Tyndalls experiment The Fractal Record of heat trapping  CO 2 Abstract This is a study to identify other places or instances where CO 2  traps heat in the everyday real world -  as it is implied. The 'fractal record' (taken from the fossil record) shows there are no examples (at least at a level to be measurable) or evidence to support the claim CO 2  traps heat; that CO2 is a special heat trapping gas. Aims To develop the fractal (record) as an instrument of reason.   To end carbon-climate debate. Introduction The fractal record should help settle the inductive argument (set by carbon-climatology) and show the truth and real relationship between heat and CO 2 . CO 2  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 CO 2 ) a

Possible meeting with Lawrence Krauss

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 mass

Measuring the fractal wavelength

An attempt to measure the fractal wavelength. Rational This entry came (to me) from working on the fractal spiral, the fractal wave, and de Broglie demand curve entries. I thought - as it is impossible to measure both time and distance - that it may be possible to measure - even if only in principle - the distance of the wavelength - based on a known dimension, the length of the triangle side ( l ). Background. Fig. 1 below shows the fractal and its (while developing) 'wave like' nature. It shows the wave takes 6 iterations to repeat or produce one cycle, but it does not show the length of the wave, the wavelength ( λ). Fig. 1  Measuring the wavelength, an experiment. I came to me that through a simple 'experiment', the wavelength ( λ) may be measure, or at least better understood. Method: Take the iteration 0 triangle, and post it on a wall.  Cut out from a paper print the iteration 1 triangle from the fully developed Koch snowflake  Hold the pape

Koch Snowflake and Fibonacci

This entry is to state that I looked at whether the Koch Snowflake has a Fibonacci number in it: for some reason I did not publish it. In the earlier entry 'the  Fractal Multiplier ' I noticed that the total area is 1.6 times the area of the first triangle. It is of interest to me (the author), and of my mathematician colleague’s, that the Koch snowflake fractal multiplier is 1.6. This 1.6 is very close to (but not the same as!) the  Fibonacci or Golden ratio of 1.618 .

Fractal Log Analysis Linear functions

Koch Snowflake Fractal Log Analysis These are diagrams that I created during the last summer, I hoped that they would shed some light on fractal elasticity: they didn't. But, in saying that, I am not finished yet with them, I don't have the time, or the deeper knowledge to do a full analysis with them.  I am publishing them to show they exist and to show that this is what I have been doing, and because better to have them here, than still on my computer. Maybe someone else can look at them, and make something of them.  I am sure -   and can therefore  infer -  from the shape, and characteristics of them in  this analysis , t hat this  is the origin of  the classical  linear demand functions,  and linear supply functions - and all this from an understanding of the fractal.  I can only think of the: 'walk like a duck, quacks like a duck'.

Measuring knowledge elasticity with Youtube

Measuring knowledge elasticity with Youtube  A quick note on something I thought of some time ago. Many Youtube clips are not shown in their entirety,  as one clip, but as series of  clips of (around) 10 minute. It has been interesting to me to note the number of  'views' for each of these 10 minute clips. One might think that the counts should be the same for each, but they are not. Are these counts a measure of the value of the knowledge in the clip. If the numbers remain near constant, one might say the knowledge is elastic - more knowledge is to be gained by watching the next. If the numbers diminish, one might say the knowledge is inelastic - more knowledge is not gained by an watching another.

The Fractal Cat

The fractal cat: as opposed to the quantum cat A discussion entry. At what size (or scale) would I have to shrink to before my cat would eat me? Venus is my cat, and is nicest- calmest cat you can think of, but I have seen her eat mice - not pretty. Is our relationship all about scale? And is this scale a measure, or determinant of power.
