THE NEW NEW ME – 2nd of 3

There are good collapses, and human conceit is one of them.

With math, it’s pick your poison.

Take the Shakespeare Equation. It’s about how all the sacred numbers can be found on a 16th century book cover, which is long before we rediscovered them.

Look at Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. It’s about sophisticated maps from 10,000 years ago. Long before we rediscovered Antarctica.

Look at critics of the Higgs Boson experiment at Cern. They say if you adjust parameters and variables enough, you can prove near anything. I imagine you can prove lots of contradictory things using math. It’s called The Higs Fake by Alexander Unzicker.

Look at the math wizardry on the pyramids. It’s enough to make any engineer cry. This is the same adjustment of parameters and variables, but just the fact that it proves so many things is spiritual in its mathematical purity. The mere fact that so many coincidences occur is fascinatingly astonishing. A miracle of life.

Look at religion, it’s collapsing before your eyes.

What this tells me is that even through the sacred lens of math, we’re very likely still deluding ourselves.

In the first 8 months of 2017, China’s lithium battery production rose 51%. The cost of recycling is too expensive to regulate.

We have become China politically and spiritually.

Say goodbye to the country you once knew.

Hat Trick

Note: I did not remove the above post.

Electricity production is only 20% of the world’s total energy demand, so when you read Germany got 30% of its power from wind and solar, that’s only like 30% of 20% on a windy, sunny day.

World energy consumption

Stefan Rahmstorf says we must reduce emissions 100% in 20 years to stay below 2° C.

James Hansen says 2° C = DISASTER

Kevin Anderson says we have a 5% chance of staying below 2° C.
