Prehistorically discovery of new areas may be the main reason of production increase. After a while discovery of new
methods of production seems to have replaced it dominantly.
New methods brought new product to our life. Then a surplus of products. Then superfluous prdoducts and finally surplus of superfluous products. I may have
mixed the order but the existence of a good deal of superfluous products is to be accepted. We seem to have gone too far at the sea.
Someone should have placed a magnetic material in the vicinity of our compass. We may ourselves have done this without noticing. We first are to make
recaliber our compass.
We need to conduct research to improve our educational system. That should be our first topic of research.
As far as the pre university education is concerned, the main problems seem to be not to plan the future respecting the individulal rights, and not being
able to satisfy one of the on the way emerging basic needs. The others are side problems.
As we climb higher on the tree our choices are multip- lied and the ways get more fragile. The problem is with the university education.
Somewhere we have to decide who will conduct R&D, who will teach and who will do the routine jobs. The system should be flexible enough to compensate
the changes that may occur on the way.
Since the human abilities show an almost Gauusian distribution and this distribution is continuous, every graduate
should a a right to take part at all of these activities depending on his quality of being prepared and should be paid correspondingly.
Being dismissed from any of these should not have fatal consequences, and staying with dominantly one of them should not mean real life.
Considering the diversities, design of such a system requires a good deal of research.
AREAS WE NEED TO CONDUCT MORE RESARCH ON
We need to broaden our window in time domain and we are still far from being able to predict our future. The only thing
we can is to know our past better.
We still do not know clearly if the Great White Pyramid of China exists and the things it contains. How the Pyramids of Egypt are constructed.
We do not know if script has been taught to us or it is our own invention.
I do for example know that the (american) indian carpet patterns and the ones made in my village in Turkey are the same. But I do not know to which date
this craft goes back.
We do not know which of our genes is responsible for hymen, how we got it and why our women may get pregnant 12 times a year. An ape can not do this.
We do not know for certain if the flood of Noah really existed, it locality and its date. So it is in the case of Nimrod and Abraham. So it is in the
case of Moses, the Phroah and Red Sea.
PREDICTIONS of SUNNI ISLAM
Predictions of sunni islam regarding end days do have a realy high hit rate. Especially the ones that are cited by Ahmad are incredibly astonishing.
I live in Turkey and my religion is islam. I do not know all of these predition. I have only heard of about 8-10 of them an I do not know if they have
really been said by the prophet or if they are only hearsay.
The date of written documents containing these predictions seem to be important. If they are older than 200-300 years I would rather evaluate them as
A possibility is that the narrator (Ahmad) is Abu `Abdillah Ahmed ibn Muhammed ibn Hanbal al-Shaybani (Ahmad ibn Hanbal), Sheikh ul-Islam, born 780 died
855 A.C. If this guess is true I would pay more attention to the situation, it is wort then paying special attention.
We say hear "Biri yer biri bakar, kıyamet ondan kopar (Some eats and some looks, a message of end days)". It seems to be the case.
THE MATTER OF PHASE
Looking at the curves predicted by the simulations given by The Limits to Growth the problem seems to be the delayed population
decrease, due to mainly reactive behavior.
If the parameters are sufficient and the predictions are true a preactive decrease of population seems to be the cure. We have to take this medicine.
If necessary we need to add new parameters and new runs.
I did not know if source codes of the simulations run in the computers in MIT are now freely available. I have just read a letter of Dennis Meadows to Mr. Ben
Burch stating that the first simulations language , Fortran, is now obsolete but the second's STELLA codes are buyable from Sustainability Institute. This reference , work of Peter Imhof of Technische Universität Hamburg is to be noted. It seems
that we, not experts of the field, have to expect from experts to resolve any controversy via further research.
SOCIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY and THEIR
It is known and accepted that human behavior is partly determined by genetic and partly environement. In this sense genetic
is somehow remembrance of the past. How long in time is a question.
If we seem to be in need of designing a new human who will take more care of a broader space-time we need to design also a new society with different
expectations from the individual.
To design this in order to prevent a self induced doom we will need research. Without good research we can not realize this wish.
Dr. Alexis Carrel who got in 1912, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is one of the frontiers of dreaming the design of a new kind of man. At the end
of his life he seems to have begun to advise to turn back to religion, claiming instinct happens to be sounder than intelligence.
That means we are not to forget the place of a sound religion in such a society.
Long years we have thought the human gnostic capacity relies on something we call soul.
Lately we began to think the structure, the material structure of the brain is enough to explain the difference of humans.
Some people searched for soul and got no reliable, repeatable results. The material structure is not enough for me because it can not explain the effects of
initiation on cognitive sensitivity.
According to quran and holy books the soul should be a divine property and should have a possible speed of 1/50 ths of the speed of light (Mearij-4 and
As-Sajdah-5). Then it should be neither matter nor light but an hybrid form in between.
To put an end to all controversies we need finally to show that either the soul exists or not.
The brain's holographic structure may give us clues. We owe thanks to scientists who worked on this area and need to invite
A dozen of our genes we do not know exactly how we inherited may give clues.
Scientist are mostly of good intentions. Though we know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions we may have optimistical thoughts. We may
somehow happen to fall on 4 foot and discover something that helps us greatly on our wish to understand.
We may keep our positive attitude and try our best. That is the most important of all.
ANYTHING ON PURPOSE
We may hope not. We are all human beings possibly created by the same Creator. He most probably does not need our help but we need
His help as well as of our own.
