To expand our knowledge from material domains up to spiritual domains
For the readers of my book
General Epistemology, this page offers news or
more recent thinking on this subject. I did not really expected that by book
get a delirious success, but I however found these pages listed on several world
sites about scientific thinking, and they are the most common requests on
GEIPAN: when misidentifications and true
UFOs appear and disappear together...
October 3, 2017
Anyone concerned about truth, will
wholeheartedly welcome any scientific study of UFOs, especially the
GEIPAN, the official French service, which is part of the prestigious
CNES. Yet amateur
ufologists are often critical about the GEIPAN.
Without entering into complex and often
strongly biased discussions, I nevertheless spotted a very intriguing
fact, which should make every scientist frown: in the
GEIPAN statistics per year, misidentifications and unexplained
cases vary in the same way!
Credit: CNES GEIPAN. Green: misidentifications, yellow: UFO
(The change in proportion of misinterpretation, starting 2008, is caused by a change of methodology)
Problem, this is normally
impossible, since their causes are totally different! Indeed, the
number of misidentifications should be roughly constant, while the
phenomenon has large «waves» which are correlated with
nothing known. We can suppose several explanations for this
unexpected coincidence. The problem is that all of them are very
It is anyway curious to all the time bring
misidentifications while speaking of UFOs, since misidentifications
are only slag, compared to the phenomena of interest. The only
purpose about misidentifications is to avoid them. But once this
done, there is no point in publishing statistics on
misidentifications. Studies and publications can only be about the
Going up: the Nobels
August 30, 2016
We remember the Heidelberg appeal, which disparaged ecology as an
«irrational ideology opposed to science and economy»,
and which was signed by a thousand Nobels (wikipedia says 72 today.
Funny how the figures vary. But wikipedia also says that this appeal
was in facts launched by a lobby of polluting industrials).
They did it again! Who I don't know, and I have better life experiences to enjoy
than rummaging in this rubish. But this time it is an appeal of 107 Nobels,
honouring Greenpeace of a command to stop opposing GMOs!
Where I say that the Nobels are going up, is that today they are only
107 instead of 1000 (of if we apply the same desinflatation rate
as with Heidelberg, only 8). So that necessarily many understood.
Let us remind here that, even if the GMO are not always bad as the
nuclear industry is, they still entail three major risks:
-Toxicity, in case a substance is added, such as a weed killer
-Risk of disturbing the ecosystems, in case of dissemination
-Dependency of farmers toward a resource they cannot produce themselves.
Add to this the risk to produce monsters (or slaves) if we apply these
methods to Humans. What I say is that, this does not necessarily lead to a
complete ban on GMO, but still a serious legal and ethical frame.
April 5, 2015
In his book «La planète des hommes. Réenchanter
le risque» («The planet of men. Re-enchanting the risk»),
a member of the executive of Areva, the giant of nuclear power, the
«sociologist» Gérald Bronner, «deconstructs»
the «apocalyptic speeches» which make of Man the
responsible of all the ills of the world.
see here just yet another manipulation, aimed at negating the dangers
of the climate change/nuclear duo. However this one is coordinated
with apparently unrelated others.
the imminence of a divine revelation appears nowhere in the
scientific findings on climate or pollution. However the media and
authorities broke our ears with their «Maya prophecy»
fabrication, going as far as the complete staging of a sectarian
gathering at Bugarach, France, where they were the only ones to come.
The link with climate change appears when we know that in the
gibberish of the media, «apocalypse» means «destruction
of the world».
Bronner just brings the final blow, after a series of boosting
disinformation aimed at creating a confusion between the warnings of
scientists and a sectarian belief. And he knows very well how to do
this, since he already wrote books about the spreading of «beliefs»,
or how we enter in a cult!
When irrationality invests ecology
December 13, 2012
pointed out in a previous post, the void left by the departure of the
founders of organic farming creates a dangerous situation: in case of
any problems unforeseen by the specifications, who will define the
right organic practice?
actually it happened: a short list of basic foods is today under
frivolous charges, for purposes of defending commercial interest:
was accused of being a real poison by Nexus, a journal which spreads
conspiracy theories and pseudo-spiritual balderdashes.
is accused of causing allergies, to the point where it is now
fashionable to claim to be intolerant to gluten. Of course, these
charges are based on no scientific or epidemiological basis, and the
list of supposed symptoms includes almost any common discomfort, so
that everyone can play to make believe to be a victim of gluten...
while continuing to happily eat croissants! In my opinion, gluten
intolerance is the disease of Argan (A character of the Molières
play «Le malade imaginaire», or «The Imaginary
oil was subjected, in France in 2012, to a full scale media
lynching, accusing it of all evils: bad for health (although
saturated oils are essential nutrients) and being involved in
deforestation (which is partly true, since Greenpeace had targeted
this production for this motive. However the appropriate response is
not boycott, but to require an eco-friendly oil from producers, as
organic companies do for a long time). It is remarkable that the
French Government needed only some months to respond, by... proposing
a tax! While this Government is deaf since decades to far more
bread, the emblem of organic food if we needed one, is harder and
harder to find, after a legend as what it irritates the intestines
(This plays on a confusion: it is integral bread which does this,
because it contains the irritating chaff).
(Added on March 26, 2013) The quinoa, another protein-rich food, was
very predictably added to the list: it would «kill»
the Peruvians and the Bolivians! In reality, most of our quinoa
comes from organic farming and fair trade, which
warrants a minimum impact, while bringing a very welcome income
to these poor countries.
-If aspartame is not part of organic products, it is also in this
list, and we shall see that it is for similar reasons.
-Tous les isolants thermiques sont «cancérigènes»...
sauf bien sûr la laine, amplement promue, idéalisée et parée
de qualités qu'elle n'a pas, y compris pour des usages tout à
fait déraisonnables comme... l'isolation des bâtiments!
-All the thermal insulators are «carcinogenic»...
save of course wool, heavily promoted, idealized and dressed with qualities it
hardly has, including for quite unreasonable purposes such as...
unrelated, vegetarians are often called «fundamentalists».
furiously resembles an underhand campaign, specifically targeting a
small number of key foods essential to a well led vegetarian diet.
Indeed, everyone knows that for a successful vegetarian transition,
it is not enough to «remove meat»: we need a source of
proteins to replace it. Hence the obligation for wholegrain bread,
wholegrain cereals, soy (available in many forms) and seitan
(traditional Japanese gluten-based product). Similarly, butter and
animal fat (also saturated, but this is not criticized in the
propaganda above) must be replaced with unsaturated vegetable oils
(olive, sunflower, etc.) AND saturated oil (Palm, copra).
has interest into preventing such a beneficial and necessary
transition? The lobby of meat and dairy, which already heavily pushed
many «derogations» in the specifications of organic
farming. At least, they are smarter than the oil or nuclear maniacs:
instead of discrediting themselves in a frontal opposition to
ecology, they take control of it from inside! And this is all the
more easy that the «Greens» today are far too busy
smoking marijuana or making their kids adopted by homosexuals, to
remember the foundations of ecology such as non-violence or the
connection with spirituality.
To conclude, I would say that only science, a science rigorously
independent of any financial or ideological interests, can determine,
by epidemiological tests, what is safe to eat or not. This is what I
was hinted at in the time (1970s and before), that the specifications
of organic farming and food were based on recognized scientific
results (Dietetics, medicine, toxicology). For those who missed it,
new studies like the The
China Study have regularly confirmed these results, and even
beyond. Especially, the negative effects of meat and dairy products
are more and more scientifically established, to the point that even
pediatricians are starting to abandon the cult of milk. Oh, as at
random, there is a lot of «controversy» around this
A view of reality
Peasants of different countries have developed a new farming system, the

enough free time to seriously undertake intellectual, artistic or
Sandy Hurricane: last warning before use of deadly force
October 30, 2012
successive governments of the United States have complacently ignored
the warnings of the scientists about climate change, after most of
the American citizens refused to elect environmentalists, it is the
climate change in person who enters the debate, as at random only
some days before the elections. In the country of the thousand cults,
this furiously resembles a divine warning, hihihi!

Seralini study: venal or ideological experts?
October 24, 2012
DDT, tobacco, nuclear power, Mediator, death of bees... are as many
repeating scandals, where each time we hear «experts»
with sweetened and hypocritical speeches: «no no not do not
have irrational fears, it is not dangerous, if you oppose it it is
because you oppose progress, etc.» or a little later, when the
victims accumulate: «Just make a reasoned use of it»
this speech for the umpteenth time, this time about GMOs, we are
starting to think that these «experts» are paid by the
polluters. And it happened in facts: tobacco, climate deniers morons,
etc. But when these experts are paid by the governments, it becomes
indeed easy to falsify scientific research, in order to not let it
show a problem. For example, studies on GMOs were made on animals
with a short life span, like rats, so that not to let enough time for
cancers to appear. The Séralini study compensated this
problem, with using a rat breed specially created for this purpose,
who develops cancers faster. This is a common and fully recognized
process in scientific studies, in a general way to account with
differences in scales between a simulation and reality. This
methodology therefore earned him the support of a large
number of international independent scientists, who also point at
the many obstacles to scientific objectivity when interests are at
stake, or the complicity of the states which «use science when
it suits them».
notice a group of academies, all French, which violently opposed
Séralini. They however did not provided science arguments,
preferring to make a polemic about the accusations of being
interested. The problem is that these academies, if they are not paid
by private companies, are however strongly linked to the State, with
a heavy technocratic and bureaucratic mentality, and especially a
solid reputation of defence of rationalism and scientistism. A quite
specifically French problem it must be said.
ideological experts, it is a more subtle problem than venal experts,
but also much more serious. Indeed, many scientists, including some
very capable, are in fact scientistists, who are fundamentalists of
science, with a «religious» faith in its omnipotence and
infallibility. These people are thus basically unable of questioning
their activity, when it results in health or environment problems. In
these conditions, they «do not see» problems that however
everybody sees, and they say that it is us who are irrational, and
even mad. When I was a student, such a «culture» was
almost systematic (the ecologists were seen as a hostile force), and
so it could lead to a restrictive professional selection, all the
more as we go up in hierarchy or celebrity. It is conceivable that
such a selection allows at the top only a small fraternity of
«experts» systematically blind to the problems, since,
according to their «religion», these problems «cannot»
wonder, after, if people are less and less confident with science,
preferring fancy doctrines, from the New Age to climate denial.
a few days later: we
learn that the «statement» of the six academies above
was actually a simple email from an anonymous «shadow
Committee»! Some names have been revealed since, and the list
includes only people financially or ideologically into the GMO,
excluding any opponents, especially the statistician able of judging
the study. Of course this Lysenko
style method is strongly denounced by the other academicians
themselves, and it brings a clear demonstration of my point: in 2012
the ideologies are as much capable as financial interest to pervert
already saw such an anonymous committee to «monitor» the
work of the GEPAN.
It is clear that in science, anonymity is a sign of very big
Added on November 14, 2012:
a petition by the french scientists denouncing the
pro-GMO bias, which violates science methodology. They also denounce «ideologies»,
just as I did.
Added in December 13, 2012:
New rot smells (fr) are emerging, showing the close links
between some «experts», especially of the European Food Safety Authority
(EFSA), with polluting industries (tobacco, bisphenol, etc.). It is good
that these things are know, but what I would like to understand is how in the beginning
high administrations, supposed to be neutral, could select such biased expert groups.
My opinion is that all these people form a huge buddies gang.
Geneticism in the New Age way
September 27, 2012
scientistist geneticism is used to justify materialistic ideologies
or far-right ideologies, it is amusing to note that the same error is
also common in the New Age. So some see in the DNA the origin of our
deep human qualities, and even of our artistic or spiritual
aspirations. First of all, it is to attribute to DNA many magical
qualities that it has not, since it does not code for spiritual
information, and all the more less for memories, but for chemical
compounds and building templates of the body. But this is especially
falling back into a form of materialism, and even of dependency
toward our bodies or the material world, making them definitively
necessary. The true spiritual approach is precisely, at one time or
another, to no longer be dependent on the material body. Since we
shall have to renounce it one day or another.
Reductionism in the New Age way
I saw passing
something funny: chakras with nerve endings. A common idea too is to
equate them with nervous plexus. It is difficult to go further down
into spiritual materialism... Should it be remembered, the chakras
are immaterial. They have no physical counterparts, even with the
organs which would be at random in the same location. In first, the
chakras are visualization objects, which gradually build up until
they form our spiritual body. What is remarkable however, is that
when we start to feel them, it is almost at the same places for
everybody. The cause is probably in the innate consciousness of the
body. But the body is used only as a template, not as a material.
To be cured by belief, or to suffer rationally?
August 25, 2012
Since some time, I see in
science reviews articles denouncing all the trinkets and other snake
oil powders which fill whole shelves in organic stores, New Age
shops, and even some pharmacies: crystals, «vibration
enhancers», extracts of slug drooling of the Himalayas,
gluten-free diets, etc. (Added September 27: some of these products would also contain
medicines at dangerous doses, or with dangerous side effects)
This looks sound, to
denounce products which are virtually without effect, but which bring
a lot of money to the swindlers who sell them. However, as science
requires, the articles specify that these products have «no
other effect save placebo». So that, they still have effects,
after all. Odd that the same sentence denies these effects, while
confirming them. If it is so, do we have the right to discourage the
use of products which bring real relief to those who believe in their
effectiveness? If being scientific makes us suffer, isn't it better
to be a believer? If we do of science a sadomasochist cult enticing
to mortification, then I allow myself to stop following.
spirituality allows for a much better approach: anybody can check by
experience that meditation, especially positive visualization and
detachment of emotions, confers some immunity toward psychological
suffering, and even against physical pain.
Thus the modern rational
AND spiritual approach allows to voluntarily produce the
placebo effect, and in more without dependancy on
expensive crook's products or dangerous cult beliefs. In the current
state of things, this power is generally not strong enough for
avoiding medical treatment, hence the rule, and even the legal
obligation to follow the advice of physicians. But their help is
appreciable, and especially anybody who has practised spiritual help
would observe the effects.
Scientific demonstration of womanisers filthy sexist prejudices?
August 25, 2012
I see more and more in the
«science» rubric on information Internet sites,
«scientific studies» which say, for instance, that men
are inconstant and women faithful at home, that brushing against the
hand of a woman makes her «hot», men like women with wide
hips, men need violent video games to feel their masculinity, we
choose our lovers as a function of their DNA, etc. Of course, the
authors of these «studies» are not shown, nor the peer
referee journals which publish them. It is clear that we have here an
abusive use of the notion of scientific study: sketchy studies out of
any control process are used to justify anything, according to the
well established methods of generations of astrologers and circus
mediums: as any statistical comparison provides results which are
never right on the theoretical average, it is enough to publish only
the ones which give a result in the desired direction.
Gender theory (gender
«studies»): antiscience at school.
October 6, 2011
The cults of antiscience
morons have more and more power: the French children are now reading
into their school books (opposable to the parents, as I could learn
at my own expenses) that their gender is only a convention, and that
they can change it when they want...
a pseudo «science study» showing that the «aversion
of boys for the pink» appears only at the age of two, and thus
it is «acquired socially». Oh, beards and breasts, which
appear at puberty, are then acquired socially, too?
What is disturbing, is
that the media spread immediately these idioties, when they censor so
many useful or enthralling science theories.
As to the «aversion
of boys for the pink», we recognize one of these clichés
we thought dead, but which endlessly resurface out of the media.
Oh, I know too well the
explanation: a common form of stalking among young children is the
«accusation» of being a girl. As any stalking, it is
humiliating enough to leave a durable trauma, disturbing the taste of
colors and the relation with the other gender...

Error 404: brain not found
Error 404: brain not found
Error 404: brain not found
The thought scanner started.
October 6, 2011
For the first time,
machine was able to show a mental image on a screen.
More accurately, it was the projection of the vision of the eye,
thanks to the detailed analysis of the activity of neurones.
It is however a very
degraded image: the projection in the brain of a retina image is
blurred and distorted. In more, the MRI scanner can detect only the
global activity of groups of neurones, not the messages they
exchange. At last, a true mental image (memory, imagination) probably
not appears with this machine, otherwise they would have shown us.
With my opinion, it
did not worked, because the mental images would be coded in a much
more abstract level in the brain, in a way into a «vectorial
graphic» when the machine would see only the «bitmap»
projected by the retina, before «vectorialisation». Of
course, only the «vectorial» image is stored as a memory,
and the mental images we create would also be of this kind,
explaining that we do not see them with the machine. So we are still
very far of «seeing the thought».
However this kind of
machine (and its reciprocal, the machine for creating images and
sensations directly into the brain) bring the promise of
extraordinary applications: disabled people, total immersion into
virtual worlds, see direct transmission of thought. (I
also speak of this here).
However we also think at
«Big Brother» uses: to detect thought, to impose a
normalized thought, see to torture without without trace. These risks
are still considerable, with still more than one third of the world
population living under barmy dictatorship.
But I also think at a more
subtle risk, of the «brave new world» type: the lack of
means to display feelings, emotions or vibrations on the screen, may
reduce the human experience to only images, sounds, texts. This is an
extremely serious risk, and already present, even without machine,
when we see the scorning and discriminations which often greet these
concerns. However a skilfully designed machine could also transfer
directly these vibrations from brain to brain, and this is more
simple than for images.
Sexual mutilations «protecting against AIDS»
October 6, 2011
Some months ago, «science
studies» in some African countries would show that circumcised
men have less chances to get AIDS... Admitting that this is true,
would circumcise all men eliminate AIDS? Certainly not, as the
supposed protection is much too weak. All the more that, with
dualistic thought, many will imagine to be invulnerable... The
irresponsible publishing of such partial «information» is
more likely to increase the epidemics.
But now, a new study
arrives, of similar sources, claiming that, on the contrary, a common
contraceptive would favour AIDS... as at random.
This time, suspicion rises
that science would be exploited, in order to justify local taboos. We
shall be sure in some months, when the «studies» will
«show» that excision protects women...
With my opinion, to forbid
prostitution and rape (main vectors of AIDS in these countries) would
be much more efficient and cheaper.
Superluminic neutrinos and «relative scientific truth»
October 6, 2011
The recent observation by
the CNRS and the CERN of neutrinos seeming to go faster than light,
was greeted with a great pleasure by all the junk media. We
especially heard cheering loudly all the supporters of the theory as
what the science truth would be «temporary», changing,
see the result of «social power balance» between
researchers. The imbeciles at last enjoy their revenge on the
intelligence of Einstein! We are going to have our ears stuffed with
conspirationist theories and «questioning of imperialist
Oh, we would have enjoyed
to hear the subluminic media when science started to warn about
pollution in 1972, or on global warming in 1979, see in... 1890!
(Added August 24, 2012:) Very expectedly, the
violation of the speed of light proved to be an error in the
measurement of the arrival time (A wrongly connected GPS). These are
things which can happen even to the best scientists. But what is remarkable is
the quasi silence of the media about the rectification of this error,
while six months earlier they were noisily bashing Einstein and
Relativity. Thus, for the man in the street, only the challenge of
Relativity passed, and, if he hears one day that scientists still
rely on Relativity, he will think that scientists are sectarian.
DANGER! Growth of antiscience!
July 30, 2011
A recent poll (French
IPSOS, for «La Recherche» and «Le Monde»,
issue of wednesday 15, June 2011) shows that the public in France is
more and more wary of science. So science in general pays the price
for the nuclear stuff, GMO, «medicine accidents» etc.
Even the fascist propaganda of the climate deniers seems to have
significantly breached the confidence in science. However domains
like renewable energies still have the confidence of the public.
Recently I heard an
organic farmer very astonished that the astrologists could not
foresee the drought of spring 2011 in France! One second after, he
was laughing at the scientists «totally unable to predict
weather»! Visiting organic food fairs, I could see that half
the stalls were about phoney medicines or snake oil like jewels
protecting from the noxious waves of cellphones... It is sad to see
meetings meant to be socially advanced, falling as low as the
astrology rubric in the TV. So, crass ignorance seems to still more
mislead the opinion than the defiance of the terrible results
attributed to science...
This situation is
very worrying, and it is high time that scientists unite in a kind of
organisation, defining a «policy of
science», taking a clear distance with materialism and
capitalism, recovering its founder values of the Century of
Enlightenment, and contacting the social and spiritual values of the
21th Century. So science could be able to speak in its own name,
without appearing as the lackey of some political, ideological or
financial power. Such a project would also take charge of explaining
science otherwise than with abscond equations or soppy images.
Which evolution for
July 30, 2011
Still today, there is no
better definition of organic farming than «no chemicals».
By lack of more accurate criteria, the legal definition of organic
farming is made with lists of specifications («cahiers des
charges» in France), which are collections of rules which
justification is not always obvious to the profane. The existence of
«organic wine» clearly shows that the notion of «natural»
easily rules out any rational analysis. The existence of «organic
meat» signs for the disconnection from non-violence and
spirituality, while the presence of numerous snake oils in organic
shops clearly tells the prevalence of naturalist and
pseudo-spiritual beliefs without any link with ecology or social
However the evolution of
farming and food practices could bring situations which were not
foreseen into the specifications for organic farming. Who will decide
to accept or refuse the new practices, and on which criteria?
Example: GMO. Certainly
the GMO that some tried frantically to fob us were clearly dangerous
at several levels, and we were right to refuse them. But what will
happen when harmless GMO will be created, see GMO useful to an
organic diet? Who will do the necessary checking? Who will modify the
specifications? Example: GMO grains enriched in essential amino
acids, lest costly and fighting obesity. Or GMO cotton, being grafted
the colour gene systems of bird feathers, allowing for a great
freedom of clothing without requiring a complex die chemistry, and
with no known or predictable risk. Such GMO could be added without
problems to the list of allowed products into the specifications of
organic farming... However there is much to bet that they will be
forbidden, as «not natural»!!!
There is also a short list
of foods which are regularly accused of serious «hazards»,
while science notices nothing: soy, gluten, wholegrain bread,
aspartame. But nobody criticizes «organic wine», and all
the snake oils found in organic shops. It is however curious to see
that this short list is in facts a small number of key foods allowing
for a really balanced vegan diet, independent of the great food
companies, as well as of the extreme right ideologies justifying
And who funds reviews like
Nexus or Bio-Contact (French free monthly magazine advertising an
indiscriminate mix of serious organic stuff and organic snake oil),
which spread the «ideas» above? How a small confidential
Australian fanzine could become the world leader of «green»
disinformation? I searched on the Internet, but these informations
are not accessible. It would however be useful to know, as it is
these reviews which shape the opinion, now that the founders of
organic farming are gone.
Open war against science has begun
some years ago, I noted that numerous conspirationnist theories were
attacking science (Supposed extraterrestrial control, Apollo missions
which would never have happened, etc.). These marginal theories were
little credible, but it was already worthy to note than they already
had a strong support from some large media with very retrograde
pseudo-debate «creation versus evolution» was a first
victory of obscurantism: the teaching of evolution is now restrained
into some states. I say pseudo-debate, because what could be an
interesting reflexion on the origins of the world, spirituality and
science, was turned into (by both sides) a sterile fight between
materialism and belief.
recent attacks against science by the climatosceptics (Some great
capitalist companies and extreme-right parties) were successful into
troubling the opinion, with the help of those great media already
skilful into the pseudo-scientific intoxication of the opinion.
So the politicians and the media who were fanaticists of science while it
was inventing bombs for them, are now rejecting it, because it is
suggesting them to make an effort to protect our planet! Beyond the
ultimate idiocy of such a position, this attack constitutes a very
large crisis, similar to World War Two (War is to be understood here
in a metaphoric sense, but we could see the practical sense before
2020). Given the stake, climatoscepticism constitutes an evil of a
seriousness and magnitude similar to nazism, except that instead of
aiming at races, it aims at intelligence. As to the physical
consequences, they could be much larger than those of World War Two:
already 2010 saw much more climatic deaths and refugees than the
ongoing wars, and no one dares to think what will happen in 2040,
date at which these blokes plan to start to react.
the most stupid in there is that the tens of millions of dollars
absorbed by the climatosceptical propaganda (without mentioning the
billions lost with utopias like ITER or the BP well leak), could be
used to develop the aerothermic
oil) able to solve the crisis rapidly, without changing the
society, while the oil companies who give this money would rather
have interest into patenting these technologies right now, before
others nab them their monopoly on energy... But they will not do
this, as these childish egocentric see the ideas of others as
Well, the scientists, usually so neutral, were submitted to a gradient of
political field... and they were polarized (lol), in an interesting
way at last, while clearly separating of the few infiltrated
propagandists. But will they be able to get out of their labs and
assume the political stake which now lies on their shoulders? As to
politicians, it is high time that they unstuck their brains, and take
rational decisions based on realities.
As to the
General Epistemology that I am fostering, it is only the classical
science, to which is given some spiritual insight (and thus political
insight). So it is just all the more involved into the defence of
climate against mind control methods...
Criticism against the IPCC: Danger, anti-science!
new fashion of the medias is to fire blank point
against the work of the IPCC, and to pinpoint the least little
mistake, in an however outstanding work, all the more a work which is
of vital importance for our survival.
now, the medias were sending their manipulations and their hate of
life only to «minority» groups: ecologists, migrants,
latinos, spiritualists, vegetarians, etc. However, with the
disparaging of the IPCC, they are now undermining one of the pillars
of mainstream society: science. Let us hope that governments still
have some power, instead of obeying pseudo-philosophers who proclaim
themselves judges of a domain where they are totally incompetent.
The fiasco of the Copenhagen summit:
a victory of irrationalism
The hopeless failure of the Copenhagen summit
creates a situation similar to that of the Munich conference in 1938.
Munich had «legitimized» the nazi claims, opening the way
to World War Two. Similarly, Copenhagen «legitimizes» the
anti-Earth criminals, and, as a matter of facts, only one month later
we see some who start incredible trials to try to silent the citizen
and the scientists.
We could think that the failure of Copenhagen
would be a victory of antiscience, but in facts the climatosceptics
and other conspirationnist nutters just had very little contribution,
after losing all their credit with the
East Anglia University affair.
failure of Copenhagen is before all the
result of the raw egocentrism of the main governments of the world,
«right» or «left» all together, which passed
their childish financial interests and their ridiculous nationalism
even before their own survival. In this, this failure is the triumph
of irrationalism, an incredible forfeit, when everybody expected the
birth of a better world governance based on a minimum of wisdom
(science in the occurrence).
At least the ridiculous funding proposed is an incredible scorning to
the face of humans of all countries: ten dollars per year and per
westerner, and 2 dollars per year and per citizen of other
countries!!! With this money, if they have
no more Earth, they still can eat brioche...
several countries refused to sign the final document,
which, if it was adopted, would block any action for 10 years.
End of the French SEPRA (Ex-GEPAN):
a victory of irrationalism
Yes really, the french CNES (equivalent of the
NASA) decided to put an end to this service, thus stopping the scientific
and official study of the UFO phenomenon, and letting free space
for ignorance, prejudices and junk speculations.
However this service yielded interesting results, especially
the most convincing scientific evidences of the material existence
of the phenomenon.
It was anyway hampered
from the beginning by a ridiculous funding (just enough to pay some
secretaries), the obvious hostility of the direction of the CNES and
by a strange forbidding: not to publish its results! «Science»
however means «to know», don't you think so? This forbidding
would have be one of the main motives of the sudden departure of its
founder, Claude Poher. And I understand he had reasons to be furious,
especially with the interesting results he already obtained at that
So that nobody comes and
say that the folks who oppose to the study of UFOs are rational.
What become the MANTRA study?
This text was integrated into the book, in
The readers of «General
Epistemology» (chapter 28) will remember that I mention
the Mantra study made in 1998. This study provided interesting and
scientifically sound evidences that prayer had positive effects on
the health of persons having serious surgery (Up to 100% more of certain
health criteria). I even said it was an historical evidence of the
existence of certain parapsychological phenomena, with the only restriction
that the statistic sample was a bit too small (150 persons).
Today the same study was made again, with 750 persons.
However we find everywhere on the Internet that after the Mantra Study»,
«there is no health benefit» with prayer. I allow myself
to be somewhat astonished, especially in the way it is announced:
In 1998 some rare publications were quoting the first optimistic study
as being «The Mantra study» when now several known newspapers
speak of the pessimistic second study as being «the Mantra study»,
which, by confusion, can make «forget» the existence of
the first study and of its positive result.
That two identical studies could produce so different
results arises a question. This difference even seems too large (one
against two) to be just a statistical fluctuation. But this situation
is in fact quite common in parapsychology. Who never tried to play
Ouija or draw Zener cards: The first test finds us astonishing powers,
while the followings fall back into the insignificant. Only meta-studies
allow today to state the reality of these phenomena, or very heavy
professional data bases like that of the PEAR
laboratory in the Princeton University. The latest even suggests (it
is my interpretation) that a factor could operate a nearby perfect
compensation, allowing only very little effect (and even sometimes
an overcompensation, called psi-missing, inverting the expected effect)
Technically, the effect would more easily manifest as an increase
of the variance (note3) rather than an average
The american commentors of the Mantra study, with their
christian culture, «explain» this failure by formulas such as «We
cannot put God to the test» or «Prayer is not a penny
in the slot machine. You can't just put in a coin and get out a chocolate
bar». Rather inspired by the buddhist teaching, I would say
that the approach of the individual ego aiming at a result which would
satisfy its expectation, this approach is doomed to failure. But on
the other hand, buddhist teaching states that when we obtain a neutral
enough state called Arhat state, so parapsychological powers appear
automatically. If things are really like that, so the compensating
factor would be linked to our consciousness state. It could result
of our karma, or perhaps of a forbidding made to us.
So this failure could show in facts much productive. Anyway
I think that we should better the protocol for the third study which
is planned, to account with the above effects. But this cannot be
published right now.
Another explanation, much simpler, that I gave in my book,
would be that the first study was made with little advertising, while
the second was «controversial» (understand: there was
ideological opposition), and this unclean ambience was no longer conductive
of positive effects.
New (November 2004):
Another explanation is possible, but of a very different order. I
clearly remember, having done a retreat into the buddhist monastery
Nalanda, to have attended prayers sessions for the first study. But
my friends monks do not remember to have be requested for the
second study, or much less than for the first. Disturbing. If
this gets confirmed, so the second study would have demonstrated only
a very well known fact: a medecine which stays on the shelf has no
Complements on the quadripolar logic
(for the readers of «General
This text was integrated into the book, in
In the chapter 4 of my book «General
Epistemology», I introduce the «quadripolar logic»,
a logic with four poles in place of the two classical poles of the
Aristotelian or Boolean logic. This logic better fits the situation
of oppositions between two spiritual or moral values.
I want to add here that, in more of its three privileged
vertical lines, the diagram also contains three points which would
be attractors. In mathematics we call «attractors» toward
which the situations tend to spontaneously get closer. I indicate
their position here (three orange circles):
- The bottom attractor is that of duality, of opposition, of conflict.
Here no development of the human being is possible. This point is
- The middle attractor if that of compromise. It is the basis of
the legislative systems, protection of citizens by law, democracy.
The development is possible, but has to face limits and compromises.
It is a grey world, and as a matter of fact the diagram is of an
average grey at this place.
- The top attractor is that of non-duality. It allows for a society
where everyone could fully express his positive potential without
having to bear any limitation. This point is white.
Examining real societies shows that they are really attractors.
As a matter of facts situations tend to spontaneously evolve in a way
to go toward the nearest attractor, and to pass to the upper attractor
requires a serious effort. So it needed a long time to emerge of the
bottom attractor (dictature, slavery, violence) and the countries which
are still here today have trouble to eliminate all this hate. Today
the western societies seem stabilized in the middle attractor (democracy,
capitalism, law protections). It is now difficult to make them go again
to the first level; but the attempts to reach the third level still
have to face serious obstacles. The third attractor (freedom, True
Economy, true peace, happy social life, profound spirituality)
is attained today only by small groups with strong spiritual commitments.
But its attraction has a growing influence at the level of the second
attractor, for instance with fair
Experiments on the structure of time
(for the readers of «General
In the chapter 38 of my book «General
Epistemology», I describe several experiments to test my
hypothesis on the nature of time (Chapter 33), which would be a «logical
self-generation process»©. The famous Aspect experiment
already goes that way. It thwarts the notion of locality in our universe
(arbitrarily far away phenomena can still share a quantum link) Recent
variations also break the notion of an absolute time (The quantum
link can last even if the phenomena take place at different moments).
But it is only subtle and very weak effects, without any impact on
our daily life.
But another experiment was made suggesting time shifts
of several days. I think to an experiment of the PEAR laboratory
(Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) in the University
of Princeton. It is a classical telekinesis experiment, on technological
systems: to think that one will change the average of a random bit
generator. You can obtain the report
of results (PDF) and their M5
working hypothesis (PDF)
Other curious or interesting results also appeared:
- Men and women do not influence the machine in the same way.
- A merry, harmonious, mystical or charismatic group is more efficient
that the average, while a group in the style of a business management
meeting is completely inefficient. But the best effect was obtained
by a group of... jokers!
- Only analog systems are receptive to thought. Digital systems,
such as pseudo-random algorithms, show insensitive. This difference
was constant whatever the technologies on test, mechanical or electronic.
This laboratory also did the same experiment with a quantum
random bit generator. As several hypothesis suggest a relationship
between parapsychological phenomenon and quantum effects. Too bad
for these hypothesis, the experiment did not produced results different
of other analog generators.
However to be really firm these results would need more
statistical accumulations and to be reproduced by other laboratories.
From here the interest to support the labs which work in this domain...
and to volonteer for the experiments!
We can also note that these results confirm various statements
of the spiritual domain: effect of love, or action of the mind in
the «three times» (past, present, and future).
In chapter 18 of my book «General
Epistemology», I quote several mysterious phenomena which
study was arbitrarily neglected. I indicate here some updates which
will be available in next editions.
Newä (Mars 2004) Celestial
lights observed during earthquakes (Earthlights) Earthquake
witness regularly report luminous phenomena, on the aurora type in
the sky, or of the ball of light type near the ground. Of course these
phenomena were never scientifically recognized. Today the french CNES
prepares the satellite Demeter,
as «recent studies have observed in the ionosphere, at about
100 km of altitude, rather intriguing electromagnetic signals some
seconds before certain earthquakes» (Pascale Ultré-Guérard,
geophysician of the CNES) These phenomena could, as I supposed in
my book, be linked to the lights of the aurora type. But less probably
to the ball of light type.
Strange trees at Vierzy and in the Mont Beuvray (France).
Contrarily to what I wrote, the «queules» of the Mont
Beuvray have nothing mysterious, they just are hedges shaped with
tree branches curved by local folks when they are still young. We
can see them «forming» on, on the path toward the spring
of the Yonne river, and Jules Cesar already mentioned them. On the
contrary, I found no references about the faux de Vierzy on Internet.
Barisal gun and other unexplained bangs. A possible
explanation would be that the stratosphere could play a role of an
acoustic wave guide, and lead sounds like the thunder at a great distance.
So the noises of the 1914-18 war were to be heard at London, but not
on the intermediary path. The worse is that these phenomena were in
fact abundantly studied in the 1920', before the radar, and there
even was a series of experimental explosions set in La Courtine, France,
in 1923! On the other hand noises such as that of the Seneca lake
are for the moment unexplainable.
Ice falls from the sky. I wrote that the mysterious
ice pieces fallen from the sky could not come from aircrafts, as aircrafts
do not empty their toilets in flight. Alas yes, they do, despites
all the hygiena and epidemics problems such a disgusting practice
arises. Even the space shuttle does this! So it is very likely that
these ices would be residues of plane toilets (or of the de-icing
system), and this seems confirmed by the analysis made at the time
of the spanish wave. But an ice meteorite is still conceivable, as
in space the equilibrium temperature of a body is much lower than
zero. There is even a case of a meteorite (said of Dhurmsala) which
was ice cold just after falling. So if you see ice falling of the
sky, keep a sample, even molten, while avoiding to contaminate it.
To be noted (June 2004) that scientists and meteorologist
begin to show a rationnal interest toward this phenomenon. They think
to an unknown meteorological origin. As a matter of facts it is ununderstandable
that a hailstone could form into a blue sky, and grow to several kilogs
(sometimes tens of kilogs) diring the few minutes of its fall.
Conspiraties and false science
In chapters 13 and 17 of my book «General
Epistemology», I wrote that certain pseudo-scientific and
somewhat fascist theories such as the behaviourism would have be in
fact created and spread by occult groups, under the cover of umbrella-fundations.
At that time, I had no real evidences, but now, with Internet everybody
can very easily make his own inquiry, and see what is going on in
less than one hour.
Before starting with serious things, please let us note
first that to denounce imaginary world-wide plots is very much
fashioned today. For instance a very unlikely theory pretends
to explain abductions
by manipulative extraterrestrials, with the complicity of the USA
government. But extraterrestrials being somewhat difficult to catch,
the conspirationnists must do with more accessible scapegoats. So
we come again with updated versions of the «Jew plot»,
or of the occult rule of the Franc-Maçons, and other baldernashes,
still much more stupid than naughty. However various rumours state
about more likely plots, and inquirers may discover very real facts.
A very clear example is that of the manipulations
done by the tobacco industry (see my page
on drugs). Go on Google
with the key word «Ragnar Rylander». You will easily find
how this Swiss «independent professor», today condemned
by courts and discredited world-wide, had, for more than fifteen years,
grossly falsified his «studies» proving the inocuity of
second-hand smoking exposure, while in reality he was funded by cigarette
manufacturers to thwart anti-tobacco prevention. Curiously, there
are few links in English, the most revealing are in French: Dossier
de presse sur les affaires politico-scientifiques et les cigaretiers (in French)
prosecution (in French).
In English, check this,
and also a
list of very compromising secret documents. Hey, you surely remarked
that all the new ecological awareness and new health awareness are
hampered by endless «debates» between experts who mutually
contradict themselves. Especially, you wondered how, each times specialists
publish a ten years study denouncing a health or environment issue,
two months later other experts are able to publish another ten-years
study contradicting the first? No they did not used a time machine,
they «just» falsified they results, after having engaged
in a very ordinary business contract with the polluters nabbed by
the fist study. Unless they act «from idealism», in the
name of various anti-life ideologies, rife among this world of vivisectors
and technocrats. There are still many Ragnar Rylander to denounce!
About the case of behaviourism itself, it seems
more difficult to find a formal conspiracy, but right on my first
attempt to search, I found a forum page Wertfreiheit
and Behaviourism very interesting, as the author of this reply,
despite posting it on the site of a pro-capitalism little group, does
not elude an open discussion (paragraph 4) on the very purpose
of economy, or on the nature of consciousness. More precisely he explains
(paragraph 5) how, as soon as the end of the 19th century, «the
economists placed a fence» against the Christian ethics «of
the sacrifice» (of Altruism?) in considering only the methods
of economy (the business), never the purpose of this economy»
(See my book «True
Economy» for the unbiased discussion). You really read this:
they pursue an activity without never bothering of its purpose!!!
It is really fantastic, as if we were still building more and more
comfortable cars, where we should just forget to place an engine to
move it! This correspondent also explains how the neurologists also
placed a fence against the idea of an immaterial consciousness («soul
stuff») in considering only «how» the human behave,
never «why» (This is the basic pervert «method»
of behaviourism) . We really have, in both case, as I wrote it, a
conscious, deliberated and collective refusal of the scientific observation
of whole domains of life. Really, the materialistic and egocentric
(pseudo) theories which are used as alibis to nowadays technocracy
and capitalism, were born in the same way, and perhaps in the same
brains, that the «anthropological» racist theories which
were used to justify colonial conquests. Just pity that this author
does not give names!
New: (Sept 2, 2003) Further
searches now allow me to tell names, some unknown, some too
much well known. Despite their desire, the scientists at the Century
of the Enlightenment were not able to carry on a really scientific
study of the abstract domains, for they had no access to the appropriate
investigation methods. But the scientists of the 19th century frankly
posed these domains as improper to any science, and only a domain
for useless beliefs. They accepted only «positive evidences»,
understand only facts reducible to something material. It is well
known that the author of this scheming is precisely Auguste Comte,
considered as one of the greatest epistemologists of sciences. Anyway
I would avoid the simplistic temptation of making of Comte a kind
of «big satan» source of all the sins of modern science.
He was probably only an honest atheist, disgusted as everybody by
the hopeless spectacle of dogmatic bigotry and pudibondry offered
by most religious peoples at that time (In France, monarchic reaction
of Louis Philippe). His work is complex and features several radically
different steps: the positivism as shown today is only one of these
steps in a path which could probably have led Comte up to the gate
of the mystical world, after he knew the human love with Clotilde
de Vaux. But this latest step was of course rejected as «delirium»
by his own «positivist» disciples! If only Comte's
materialistic thesis had such an impact, and such an influence, it
is really because they met the expectations of a whole class of materialistic
intellectuals, anti-moral and anti-religious peoples just devoted
to selfish enjoyment. (I explain in my book «General Epistemology»
how a non-materialistic epistemology is possible, and I further develop
this theme of the Positivism in my book to come, about mind control
methods). And the «scientific» defence of racism, in there?
Very simple, much too simple, alas: Comte himself co-signed «The
manners of the French thought in Brazil in 19th century: the racial
question» with a certain Arthur Gobineau, himself author
of «essai sur l'inégalité des races humaines» (essay
on the inequality of human races) and precisely the founder of that
racist «anthropology». Comte regretted it later, but too
late: the devil was liberated, and we can precisely follow the traces,
from teacher to disciple, of the taking over of the «positive»
ideas toward racist anthropology, the German nazism and French fascism
(Maurras) or toward this unbearable Marxist materialism. And all these
peoples will certainly not disavow their today heirs, these insolent
scientistists and technocrats who frantically try to enforce us with
their nuclear industry, their greenhouse effect and their GMO.
But all this past looks nearby benign, in front of the
present. I even not dare to give names or links, so it is incredible
and frightening. But everybody can do his own inquiry, with the little
method which follows. Take the name of a media which says silly things
on greenhouse effect, ecology, extraterrestrials, war in Irak, or...
tobacco. Then search on Google
«owner of» followed by the name of that media. Searching
a while, you will find names, say xxx (they are not thousands...).
Then do another search with the key word xxx associated with one of
the followings: «extreme right», «green extremists»,
«institute», «corporation», «Greenhouse»
«think tank», etc. The result is really astounding: Only
a small group of persons in the world has enough political influence
and mediatic power to thwart all the social and ecological policies
going on today! On their sites, these peoples present themselves
as gentle «economical institutes» or think-tanks, see
as humanitarian organizations, supporting «projects» in
poor countries. But when we surf on their pages we find that they
practice in reality the coarsest negationism against ecology, or the
ultra-liberalism in economy, supporting incredible subversive thesis
such as competitive education, privatization of the Social Security,
or the elimination of any morals in public life.

warfare, a doormat. Completely falsified and prostituted, brandished

As for democracy and human rights, if there is no more
freedom of the press, so they are still more endangered than science.
Defenders of democracy must tackle this problem in emergency, which
looks like being a challenge as large as the abolition of slavery.
So, there are not only some fringe theories such as the
behaviourism which were created from manipulations, but the whole
set of anti-ecology, anti-social, anti-happiness and anti-spirit theories.
As for the peoples who do science properly, even the more materialistic
never found things like that.
The logical feedback: not so exotic
(for the readers of «General
In Chapter 39 «A simple view of the history
of the Universe» I presented a theory, very simple but which
will look somewhat exotic for today scientists: a «logical
feedback»© between the final state and the initial
state of the universe ensures its coherence, and even the evolution
of its content, including the evolution of life. Such an action in
reversed time may surprise many, but, in facts, if we take a simple
example, admitted by today science, this notion looses all its fantastic
aura and becomes something clear and understandable by all.
This example is the Darwinian evolution of species, as
understood by today science. More accurately, let us take the example
of the flight of birds. After the Darwinian theory, it is the accumulation
of random mutations, eliminated or retained by natural selection,
which led to beings able to fly. But the number of genetic characters
to select simultaneously is so huge that the appearance of flight
looks a priori very unlikely. Historically, the opponents of the theory
of the evolution even took this as an argument so that flight could
not have appeared by natural selection, but from a divine creation.
Today we begin to know that feathers could have appeared twenty million
years before bird flight, and we even recently found a strange four-winged
fossil, suggested that flight could have appeared gradually among
tree climbing animals similar to today gliding squirrels. And not
only flight appeared, but on Earth it appeared four times: pterodactyls,
insects, birds, bats, and it is even in the process of appearing just
under our eyes in two other instances: flying fishes and gliding squirrels,
not to speak of spiders which travel with their wire, or dandelion
or ash tree seed.
So this gathering, so much unlikely, not only appears,
but it MUST appear, even from the simple play of random mutations
and selection. This is still badly understood, in the public and even
among some scientists. If we observe historically what happens, we
see mutation accumulating, and species diverging in numerous forms,
and no predetermined direction appears, and no physical cause nor
divine intervention shows to push things in a direction or another.
And if the dinosaurs had be eugenists, surely they would not have
tolerated this strange genetic disease of bifid scales which is at
the origin of feathers and birds. On the other hand, if we observe
things afterward, we note that, among all the possible branches, the
selection retained the one which led to beings with all the necessary
features to fly, exactly as if it had followed an engineer design,
combining complex notions of mechanics, aeronautics and automatism.
By the play of the selection, these mechanics and aeronautics
necessities are the logical cause of the appearance of flight.
A remarkably efficient cause, as we find at least six example of its
What precedes in only the generally accepted today science
theory. But in placing ourselves in my theory of the «logical
self-generation»© as described in the third part of my
book, we note that this logical cause of the appearance of flight
is untemporal: it does not appear at a given moment to
disappear after, it does not depend on the presence or absence of
such or such specie or organ. To state that it acts in reversed time
(logical feedback) will certainly be more difficult to swallow, but
this is really the conclusion where we are led by this theory of the
«logical self-generation», from which time is only a consequence.
Right, when selection took place, only random and fortuitous events
acted, there was no landing of time machines nor divine magical power
shows. But this logical cause, the technical possibility of flight,
was really able, among certain small dinosaurs, to validate the
appearance of feathers millions years before these feathers
allowed the first birds to fly. Without the flight, this «genetic
disease» of feathers would have disappeared, and as a matter
of facts all the intermediary beings (climbers, gliders, with four
wings...) also have disappeared, only remained the achieved result.
It is this determinism of evolution which is often badly understood
as an «intention». It is this determinism, as it
is described by the today evolution theory, that I name a «logical
feedback» as it validates events at a given date as a
function of a future possibility.
All this is an immediate concern for us all, if we consider
that, exactly as the possibility of flight made birds appear, the
possibility of a paradise and harmonious world would be the today
engine of the evolution of the human being. About the genetic evolution,
despite its slowness (at our scale) we can however note a shift in
sexual tastes which could lead to lighter and lengthier body shapes,
less dependent of constrains about feeding or reproduction (note1).
But the most relevant evolution is about society and spirituality,
which is not transmitted by genes but by example and education, shaping
at each generation much powerful and subtle brains (note2).
This evolution process is now giving visible results in a matter of
century. For instance the project of unilateral attack against Irak
made a scandal in the world, when nobody reacted about a similar attack
against Korea only fifty years sooner. This evolution is led briskly
by logical causes which power incommensurably overwhelm the largest
politico-military coalitions. It goes slowly, by trial and errors,
but it goes inexorably. Be careful, dinosaurs who want to forbid the
appearance of feathers!
«God» could have no other nature, in facts,
that this logical possibility of a more compassionate and spiritual
life. This possibility, as the one of flight, could be one of the
more powerful logical cause shaping the human evolution. If things
are like that, we cannot be astonished if God cannot manifest directly,
and even not give evidences of His existence. Anyway this possibility
of a more spiritual life exists, and it inspirited the prophets of
the past (who expressed their intuitions with the concepts available
in their societies, for instance that of the personified god of the
ancient Hebrews, origin of our today western conception of God being
a character) and today this logical cause is clear enough to be understandable
by everybody. To be noted that this definition
of God needs no metaphysics and no parapsychology, which, with my opinion,
makes in too weak. But at least it is acceptable as such by traditionnal
So it is not so strange to state as I do in chapter 39
that the today evolution state of the universe could result in such
a logical feedback between its achieved «final» state
and its initial state (which could produce anthropism and even explain
certain laws of physics).
Note 1: Many scientists consider
only the cruel notion of adaptation as the only engine of the evolution;
but sexual desire and even the search of happiness are very likely
to be responsible of the beauty or sexual suits of many animals, or
of «unexplainable» phenomena like the perfume and beauty
of flowers. See chapter 57.
Note 2: The brain certainly has genetically
programmed basic circuits, but human beings completely deprived of
any education are dumb, and even those with a poor education grow
disturbed or violent. It is education and social life which shapes
raw circuits to give the complex relations necessary for the logical
intelligence and emotional balance of the today civilized being. So
the detailed neuronal structure of the brain is really transmitted
by culture and learning.
Note 3: Variance. In a statistical
distribution, for example the height of people in a country, the variance
describes the spreading of this distribution. If in a given family
everybody is tall, there is little spreading and thus the variance
is small. But in the world there are many races, small races and tall
races, so the spreading is much larger, and the variance larger. In
a parapsychology tests, statistical laws say that without effect the
results must have a given average. (for instance in guessing yes-no
answers, the average is 50%, what we obtain in replying at random)
So a shift in the average is an evidence of a parapsychological effect.
But a higher variance (anomalous spreading of the results) can also
be an evidence, even without average shift. Simply what happens is
more complicated. Certain studies
seem to rather yield this kind of results.
