if physics were a quantitative science, mathematics used by physicists should be strictly about manipulation of quantities. But physicists use the equations as vehicle for casuistry filled with qualitative terms. If an equation has more than one interpretation it is casuistry, not a relationship between quantities. This means that if an equation cannot be reduced to a proportionality (all terms in a proportionality are quantities) it is casuistry and sophistry. Therefore, it is clear that physicists corrupted mathematics and turned it into their vehicle of casuistry. The professional ancestors of physicists used Latin as their vehicle of casuistry, today’s scholastic doctors doing business as physicists use Mathematics as their vehicle of casuistry.
In the limits of science, Sabine Hossenfelder, a doctor of philosophy doing business under the trade name of “physicist”, reveals many interesting things about her profession, and since we had nothing better to do this weekend than writing a useless commentary on a useless academic apologia of physics, we wanted to highlight and comment on some of them.
* * *
Sabine wants to enlighten us by revealing to us the limits of science but all we learn from her article is that casuistry in physics has no limits.
Where are the limits of science?
I reread the article by paying close attention to sentences where the word science occurs and after a painstaking scientific analysis I figured that Sabine uses this absurd definition for science:
science is the absolute true knowledge with error bars
There are other hidden assumptions that Sabine assumes secretly but fails to reveal to us because probably she believes that they are self-evident truths known to all of her readers. Some of these self-evident truths not worth mentioning are these:
– science is practiced only in the academia
– in the academia science is ordered in a hierarchy defined by a scientific hardness coefficient
– physics has the hardness coefficient of 1 and it is the only hard science and therefore physics is the only true science that can reveal true knowledge about the world (but with error bars)
– the rest of all sciences have hardness coefficients which are only a fraction of 1 and they are all soft sciences.
– social sciences are the worst and they are called “softies” and they probably have a hardness coefficient of 0.000001 which can be safely considered to be zero as compared to physics
Considering all these self-evident truths, it seems to me that it is a waste of Sabine’s time to defend physics against softies in such a long apologia of physics.
Furthermore, Sabine is a practitioner of physics — the only hard science with the coefficient of 1 — and therefore Sabine is not a softie. But an investigation of the limits of science is not physics. One cannot talk about “the physics of the limits of science” because science is not a physical quantity and therefore it is outside of the realm of physics. So everything Sabine says here is her opinion and by trying to defend physics as a hard science against the softies Sabine lowers herself into the ranks of softies.
But even though Sabine is not qualified to give professional advice outside of her narrow field of physics where she obtained a license to practice and teach, she is writing with the pretense that her status as a physicist gives her the right to pontificate in every subject on earth as long as she strategically distributes the word science throughout her pontification. There are several words we can use for someone who is projecting her limited professional expertise to realms where she is nothing more than a layman. A charlatan comes to mind, but of course we don’t want to use that word in relation to a practitioner of the hard science of physics with the hardness coefficient of 1.
Physics has the hardness coefficient of 1 but it is still better to be a softie than to be a physicist because a physicist is an underpaid apparatchik in the hierarchy of the Brotherhood of the Vis and does not fit the definition of a free-thinking scientist as used in any field except in physics itself.
A soft scientist, defined as soft by physicists of course, is an academic who practices science with softer doctrines than dogmatic doctrines of physics faith, and consequently is a better scientist because he is open to think for himself and is also a better human being.
Masanobu Fukuoka wrote:
There are two paths of human knowledge — discriminating and non-discriminating**.
[**This is a distinction made by many Oriental philosophers. Discriminating knowledge is derived from the analytic, willful intellect in an attempt to organize experience into a logical framework. Mr. Fukuoka believes that in this process, the individual sets himself apart from nature. It is the "limited scientific truth and judgment" by which Mr. Fukuoka means "the world as perceived and constructed by the human intellect. He considers this perception to be limited to a framework defined by its own assumptions." Non-discriminating knowledge arises without conscious effort on the part of the individual when experience is accepted as it is, without interpretation by the intellect.]
People generally believe that unmistaken recognition of the world is possible through discrimination alone. Therefore, the word “nature” as it is generally spoken, denotes nature as it is perceived by the discriminating intellect.
I deny the empty image of nature as created by the human intellect, and clearly distinguish it from nature itself as experience by non-discriminating understanding. If we eradicate the false conception of nature, I believe the root of the world’s disorder will disappear.
In the West natural science developed from discriminating knowledge; in the East the philosophy of yin-yang and of the I Ching developed from the same source. But scientific truth can never reach absolute truth, and philosophies, after all, are nothing more than interpretations of the world. Nature as grasped by scientific knowledge is a nature which has been destroyed; it is a ghost possessing a skeleton, but no soul. Nature as grasped by philosophical knowledge is a theory created out of human speculation, a ghost with a soul, but no structure.
There is no way in which non-discriminating knowledge can be realized except by direct intuition, but people try to fit it into a familiar framework by calling it “instinct”. It is actually knowledge from an unnamable source. Abandon the discriminating mind and transcend the world of relativity if you want to know the true appearance of nature. From the beginning there is not east or west, no four seasons, and no yin or yang.
When we look at sciences such as chemistry and biology, these sciences are based on a well-defined unit of study. Chemistry studies atoms as defined by chemists and biology studies cells as defined by biologists.
Physics studies particles. But there is no well-defined definition of particle in physics. When a physicist writes the word “particle” or uses the symbol “m” standing for “mass” in an equation both are undefined. They can refer to an object which has infinite density and therefore indivisible; or they can refer to a composite object therefore divisible.
Physicists have no standard criteria to evaluate if an object is divisible or not; by default they assume that all objects they supposedly observe are “fundamental building blocks of nature”, that is, infinitely dense indivisibles.
Then, inevitably, the next generation of physicists with new colliders with higher energies prove that what the previous generation called indivisible were divisible and they call their own supposed-indivisibles the true fundamental building blocks of nature.
Physicists meticulously developed this charade into perfection and now they call anything and everything a particle. Some things physicists call particle are
and each of these have their anti-particles.
In short, physics is still a “candidate for science” but not a science because practitioners still have absolute authority to define as they wish the fundamental unit of study of their business. As long “particle” remains as casuistry in physics, physics will remain a casuistry and will be a candidate for science but not science.
By reverse-engineering Newton’s System of the World and its modern extension called “physics”, we see that Newton built a complicated and absurd structure in order to save his assumption of atomic materialism. The assumptions named force, mass, rectilinear inertia, instantaneous action-at-a-distance are all Newton’s inventions to save his atomic materialist assumption.
As soon as we reject Newton’s assumption of atomic materialism, all of his supporting assumptions disappear from physics.
But atomic materialism is the doctrine that claims that entities of finite density are composed of unit entities of infinite density. When we reject this absurd assumption, we realize that the good concept of density is freed from Newtonian ownership and now we can make density, not matter, as the operational unit of nature; this is densytics, physics without Newtonian branding.
Unfortunately, in its raw form, Quantum Field Theory doesn’t make sense — its outputs are physically impossible infinite percentages when they should be something simpler, like the number 1. The kind of physics that the Higgs boson represents seeks to ‘renormalize’ field theory, forcing equations to provide answers that match what we see in the real world.
So, according to a physicist who is an expert in the field, Quantum Field Theory is a bankrupt theory. If QFT were a company it would be ENRON.
If QFT is ENRON, who are physicists?
Physicists are the professional doctors who are doctoring the book of physics. ENRON’s accountants cooked the books of ENRON to make the company look good to its investors; doctors of physics doctor the books of physics to look good to their employees.
No, not exactly. We should give more credit to physicists than that. Physicists cook the books of physics not to look good to their employees, no, physicists cook the books of physics to save their faith; to fit nature to their faith. Like all priests of a cult, physicists care more about their faith than monetary rewards.
Accountants are the bean counters; doctors of physics are the particle counters and it is true that there are more absolutely fundamental indivisible building blocks than there are species of beans. And all these absolutely fundamental indivisible building blocks that physicists discover, you guessed it, turn out to be as divisible as any bean.
Let us now draw our attention to this most incriminating admission of scientific fraud by any physicist ever:
… forcing equations to provide answers…
sounds awfully close to “forcing balance sheets to provide answers…” that the corrupt CEOs want.
The correspondence is perfect: Accountants manipulate one kind of loaded balance and physicists manipulate another kind of loaded balance.
But there is also a big difference. Accountants who cook books go to jail; physicists who cook the books of physics by forcing equations to provide answers to save their faith are celebrated for their great “discoveries”.
Physicists can easily “renormalize” a bankrupt theory of physics with their mathematical sophistry and sleight of hand so that they can divide by zero without appearing to divide by zero. No accountant can do this, can he? Inventing creative solutions to cook books and forcing equations to give results to save their faith… thank god physics is the hardest of hard sciences…
Atomic materialism is the faith of the Cult of Newton and physicists have been cooking the books of physics for a long time to save their faith.
But you might ask, is there a way to regulate corrupt professional physicists the way accountants and bankers are regulated? Well, there is such a regulation, it is called mathematics.
But it is a well-established fact in professional industries that professionals will corrupt any self-regulation rule imposed on them and make it their most powerful tool to continue their corruption. So professional physicists corrupted mathematics to its core in order to use the authority of mathematics to prove their doctrines.
How did this all start?
The professional ancestors of today’s scholastic doctors of philosophy called themselves peripatetic philosophers and they have been busy mixing philosophy and physics for over many centuries. Peripatetics were philosophers with a good philosophy education; physicists are philosophers manque with zero respect for philosophy and are in denial that they are philosophers doing philosophy with equations.
The story is well-known; Galileo realized that physics has become more philosophical speculations than description of nature and his solution was to transfer the scholastic authority of professional doctors to geometry.
By using geometry Galileo eliminated scores of scholastic labels doctors of philosophy had invented to explain motion and cleaned physics from scholastic philosophy.
This worked for a while but then God said “Let Newton be” and corruption in physics became legal again. Newton corrupted geometry to assert his materialist doctrines by using the authority of geometry. Newton inserted pictures into geometric diagrams. . . Newton proved geometric theorems by his authority. . . Newton made use all of his scholastic arsenal to corrupt mathematics to assert his materialist faith. Newton’s disciples the physicists have been copying their master exactly, as usual, and have been corrupting mathematics ever since.
It seems that we now reached another breaking point and even physicists are aware that they have corrupted physics to its mathematical core and some kind of rectification is in order.
How can we clean physics from physicists’ scholastic junk?
Physicists’ equation is the corrupt version of proportionality and the equation is the vehicle physicists use to apply their art of casuistry. If we could enforce that each and every equation physicists write with their branded units and branded constants ultimately reduce to proportionalities that would be a great progress toward rectifying physics. Let’s ask physicists to give up their professional authority over mathematics, like their ancestors did, and stop “forcing equations to provide answers they want” and take an oath to always read an equality sign only as an equality sign.
And let’s eliminate Newtonian branding, that would be a good start too. Physics without Newtonian branding is called densytics.
All professionals are in the business of hiding information and then selling the information they hid as absolute truth. Their business model is to package and sell their hidden doctrines as true laws.
Each professional field has a monopoly and a law for that field and professionals milk the laws they wrote to corrupt the world and enrich themselves.
Physicists are professional doctors of philosophy; they are the ones who wrote the book on how to use scholastic sophistry to corrupt your language. This is why you think that “physics describes the physical world and the physicists are scientists who describe the physical world to us.” Physicists defined nature as “physical” and called themselves “physicists” so you cannot even perceive a definitional nature without an absurd notion called matter.
Physicists enjoy a protected monopoly to legislate nature and their monopoly is protected by the government and the media and schools.
My advice to all accountants working for global corporations: When you are caught cooking the books just tell regulators that you simply “renormalized” the balance sheets. You should not be punished for using the same scientific method used by physicists.
And my advice to physicists: admit that you bankrupted the old science of physics and file for intellectual bankruptcy in the courts of science and start your recovery process as an honest scientist.
No one so far took my research seriously enough to question their faith in Newtonism; readers of this blog do not find the evidence presented here convincing enough to suspect that their world view is shaped by a religion.
Why? Maybe the evidence presented here does not meet your high level of standard of evidence? But that can’t be because as someone who believes without question the absurd theories of physicists, your standard of evidence must be really, really low. In fact, you don’t care about evidence at all; you are taught to trust the authority of the professionals and that’s what you do.
I have been writing about a discovery of historic proportions and you fail to get involved. Why? Because you cannot judge a discovery on your own; you don’t trust your own judgment when it comes to science; you believe it only if it is reported to you by the Big Media as a discovery made by a physicist who is dubbed to be the “new Einstein.”
I claim to have discovered a major historical fact that was hidden from humanity up to now; you are lucky to be living in era where such a discovery is made and this is not enough to motivate you? No. Because, any discovery reported in a blog cannot be a discovery that can meet your high standards of scientific authority. You don’t care about evidence; you only care about authority.
No one ever “refuted” – by using their own independent powers of reasoning – the conclusions that I draw from my research. When it comes to science you defer to the professional doctors. Do not argue with me by reporting the authority of physicists as evidence. I present hard historical facts and verified data for your review; I don’t argue by authority or by platitudes such as “Newtonian mechanics works therefore it must be correct.” I am explaining why Newtonian mechanics cannot and does not prove the Newtonian doctrine of atomic materialism.
Physics assumes atomic materialism as its faith. And you still call physics a science! Physics is institutionalized shamanism that “proves” its faith with “mechanics.” This fact alone must raise red flags against Newtonism.
You, as a human being, were taught the Newtonist faith as true science. If you are happy with this, I don’t blame you. Do not change. It takes a great investment of time and curiosity and skepticism to change a hard-wired faith. And Newtonism is a hard-wired faith that was administered to you through your natural language. Newtonism is built into your natural language. Newtonism is a physical prison that you cannot escape; you are not even aware that Newtonian priests corrupted your natural language to make their faith appear “natural” to you. Or should I say “physical”. Until you get the “physical” pun you will never realize how much physicists corrupted your mind. That’s why you hate anyone who tells you that Newtonism is not science but a religious cult.
For you there is no hope. You will never give up your faith in Newtonism for several reasons. The first reason is your absolute respect for professional teachers. Newtonism which you think is science is a professional field, practiced by professional Doctors of Philosophy and for you the word of a physicist is the word of science.
The second reason is that in this brief adventure we call life, you do not have the time to question useless philosophical and existential topics that do not increase your financial worth or do not contribute to your entertainment. So you ignore this issue. Who can blame you.
The change can only come through legal action against institutions that teach Newtonism as scientific and experimental truth. Such a trial can last a decade or more; it will take generations before post-Newtonian worldview takes root.
I do not have the funds to pay for this trial and I do not know who can fund it, although I know that there are parties who will be interested in this issue if they become aware of it. The first group must be parents who trust the education of their offspring to the state. These parents would not want their children to be poisoned with the doctrines of a religious cult.
Another party, is the conventional religious institutions who are told by the state to stay out of the classroom; they do not realize that the state keeps them out of the classroom but teaches a British religious cult as the state religion under the name of true science.
Also, everyone who believes that he or she is living in a Newtonian world should get involved in understanding how they are being indoctrinated with Newtonism.
Let’s be clear: I am not trying to “convert” you or anyone else to a “new religion.” I just want you to be aware that we have here a major discovery that must be of interest to you as a human being. This discovery is as important as the realization of the Earth’s motion.
I do not claim to have made this discovery: Newton did. Newton discovered that Kepler’s Rule is the definition of density. The rest follows from this unique discovery.
I claim credit for ignoring physics mythology that Newton discovered an occult force in nature and Newton’s disciples verified this force with an experiment.
I also claim credit for reverse engineering 300 years of scholastic commentary Newton’s disciples weaved around Newton’s branding of Kepler’s Rule as Newton’s laws.
And I claim credit for being absolutely uncompromising about the principle that nature is not occult. I continued my search until I understood the reason why the occult Newtonian force apparently explained natural phenomena as claimed by Newtonian priests.
Nature is not occult; Newtonian force is occult; then how come “Newtonian mechanics” based on the Newtonian occult force appears to explain orbits?
The answer is obvious — with hindsight: Newtonian mechanics is Kepler’s Rule written with units named after Newton.
Physicists claim that because they write Kepler’s Rule with units named after Newton, the world must be Newtonian.
This Newtonian world revealed to Newton by God and believed by physicists as their faith is atomic, matterful, forceful, occult and animist. Newtonian priests teach you this absurd and occult doctrine of their cult as the representation of true nature. And you believe it!
I offer you concrete evidence that Newton used Kepler’s Rule, and nothing but Kepler’s Rule, to compute astronomical quantities; Newton’s disciples hid this fact further by writing Kepler’s Rule with units named after Newton.
So, I am telling you that Newtonism is a hoax; Kepler’s Rule is fundamental; Newtonism is a scholastic school that morphed into a religious cult and it is taught as state religion around the world.
But against all evidence, you refuse to question your hard-wired faith in Newtonism.
This religious faith was imposed on you by professional teachers in the payroll of the states. You still refuse to think for yourself and evaluate the evidence I present here by your own powers of reasoning by ignoring the past and present authority of professional teachers. These teachers are paid to teach the legal doctrines of scholasticism as legalized in their books; these professional teachers never ever encourage you to question their own books; they defined scientific skepticism as the questioning of the books of the “other” teachers. As you know there are two species of professional teachers who hate each other as much as they hate science.
Doctors of Theology tell you to question the books of Doctors of Philosophy (Newtonian priests the physicists) and the physicists teach you to question the books taught by Doctors of Theology. For professional doctors of either type you are nothing more than a walking dollar sign they call a “student” who is lured into their temple to get an “education.” These two types of scoundrels have been fighting each other for market share in the education business ever since written word existed. You are just their newest victim.
Understand this: Bankers own the money; teachers own the written word. These professionals designed the system to profit themselves at your expense.
My advice to you is to question the teachings of both species of doctors. Remember “doctor” means “teacher.” In fact do not believe the books of any kind of professional doctor on the words of these doctors. Questioning the doctrines of professional doctors of any kind is science. Do not stop with just one type of books because your teacher is teaching you its own book as the only true knowledge. Once you realize this you become a scientist.
You think that for an ideology owned by a hierarchical bureaucracy such as Newtonism to be called a religion it must be the owner of a branded building we call a temple or a church. Since Newtonism does not have a church it cannot be a religion. So, you really do not realize that physics departments are the temples of Newtonism? Unless physicists hang a sign in the entrance to their department saying “The Church of the Sacred Soul of Newton” you will not believe that Newtonism is a religion? Are you really such a fool?
Understand that religion never tells you that it is religion.
Once you perceive religion as religion it becomes religion. You then realize that you have been fooled by professional teachers working for that religion.
Maybe it is difficult for you to understand this fact: Every new religion presents itself to its customers as true knowledge or, scientia. Every new religion defines itself as true knowledge and defines the old religion as religion. Understand this, please, and don’t be fooled again by the same professional doctors selling you their latest snake oil as the true science. Classic example: Emergent monotheism successfully challenged the state religion of Rome by presenting itself as true knowledge – not as an alternative religion.
Newtonism is religion because it impersonates science. Religion is revealed knowledge sold to you as true science. And Newtonism fits this definition: Newtonism is revealed knowledge taught to you as true science.
If you are such a rational human being, why aren’t you supporting this project to expose Newtonism as religion?
Remember that the Fed is a private corporation owned by a cartel of private banks. You perceive a private corporation as a government entity because it is named “Federal” Reserve. Bankers needed to pretend that – not them – but the government controlled the money in the land so they branded their cartel the Federal Reserve.
Newtonism is branded as science – not by bankers who control the money – but by another professional class – who control your education, that is, your mind.
Think about it.
Newtonism is a British personality cult; do not teach Newtonism in public schools.
Newton’s Zeroth Law says:
God in the beginning formed matter in solid, massy, hard, impenetrable movable particles.
Newton’s Zeroth Law as stated above by Newton himself is the fundamental inviolable doctrine of Newtonism.
This is what the United States teaches its pupils in public schools as true science:
[The Christian] God [as understood by Newton] in the beginning formed matter in solid, massy, hard, impenetrable movable particles.
This fact makes Newtonism the official state religion of the United States.
Teaching Newtonism violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment:
The Establishment Clause prohibits the federal, state or municipal establishment of an official religion or other preference for one religion over another, non-religion over religion, or religion over non-religion.
Newtonism is a religion that has been successfully impersonating science. The priests of Newtonism who call themselves physicists believe – by faith – in Newton’s Zeroth Law as an absolutely and unquestionably true scientific doctrine and present Newton’s Zeroth Law in the language of mathematics.
Newtonism is still a stealth religion and appears as science to outsiders (because it is presented in mathematical looking physics equations); Newtonism successfully hides its religious doctrines from public view and indoctrinates United States citizens with the religious atomic materialist dogma of the British occultist Isaac Newton.
This is the 21st century! Let’s wake up and expose Newtonism as a British cult perpetrated by Newton’s disciples the physicists.
Notes for the curious:
Ultimately, the idealism of public education is simply an unfounded, irrational belief. It doesn’t produce the claimed results for the general society, much less the least capable members of society. Its primary defenses amount to sympathy for suffering teachers, the ethical need for all children to suffer together, the political need for all children to be indoctrinated in the same system of values, and the mystical need for all children to be “socialized” in an institution closely resembling a prison.
It is common knowledge then, that the principal aim of public education is to indoctrinate the population with the same system of values.
The doctrine of Newtonism is part of the value system taught by the state — flag-states of the world teach Newtonism as official state religion.
Is Newtonism a religion?
Newtonism is a religion because it impersonates “true knowledge” and it is thought to pupils as “true knowledge.” Miracles of Newtonian religion are the faked experiments conducted by Newton’s disciples to save the Newtonian occult.
Looking at these faked experiments conducted by Newtonian priests to save the Newtonian doctrine; we see that physics is not a science and it should not be taught as science.
Physics is not science but it impersonates science by saving Newton’s doctrine by faked experiments. A doctrine proved by faked experiments is called a religion or a cult. Either way Newtonism is not science but a hoax.
Creationism and Newtonism
Why do people object if the state allows the teaching of one type of religion namely “creationism” but no one objects when the state indoctrinates pupils with the British religion of Newtonism? One reason is that people are not yet aware that Newtonism is a religion.
I’d like to hear your comments why you think Newtonism is not a religion and should be taught as science in the United States public education system.
The cycles described here parallels the generational cycle in physics but with some differences. Physics theories span 50-75 years cycles and whatever comes next must conform to the existing symbolism through legal doublespeak.
The following observation about software engineering applies to physics as well, after all physicists are theoretical engineers of useless cosmogonic scenarios decorated with mathematical symbols:
The trick in each cycle is to fight complexity, so the growth can keep going. But you can’t keep it out, engineers like complexity, not just because it provides them job security, also because they really just like it.
Physicists like complexity and the hidden not just because it provides them job security, also because their authority comes from selling what they’ve hidden. Physicists think that to unhide what they’ve hidden is to discover ultimate secrets of nature. And not only they think that but they enforce it as the true science.
