About Perspective

Introduction When we Look with our Eyes and not with our Mind we can See that Space looks very different from what we Think it is. In Our Space Parallel Lines meet at Infinity. Around 1400 during the Renaissance Painters started to look at Space with their own Eyes and discovered the Rules of Perspective Drawing. Between 1600-1800 Perspective Theory changed from a Theory of Art to a Theory of Mathematics called Projective Geometry. It took 400 Years before a few Mathematicians realized that Projective Geometry was the Foundation of Mathematics and it took another 100 years before Projective Geometry started to … Continue reading About Perspective

About Number and Magnitude

We have lost the relationship between Number and Form or Number and Magnitude as the Ancient Greeks called their Forms. A few years ago a Revolution in Mathematics and Physics has started. This revolution is caused by Geometric Algebra. In Geometric Algebra the Ancient Theories of Euclid and Pythagoras are reevaluated. Numbers are Scalar (Quantum) Movements of Geometric Patterns and not Static Symbols of Abstractions that have nothing to do with our Reality. Movements and not Forces are the Essence of Physics. The basic rule Movement = Space/Time (v=s/t) shows that  Time and Space are two Reciprocal 3D-Spaces. Our Senses … Continue reading About Number and Magnitude

About Darwin’s Superorganism

Many people believe that the theor]]><![CDATA[y of Evolution is based on the concept of competition. They believe that every gene, every cell, and every organism is designed to promote its own evolutionary success at the expense of others. The big problem with this concept is that it does not explain the enormous amount of cooperation that is visible in Nature. Atoms cooperate in Molecules. Molecules cooperate in Genes. Genes cooperate in Chromosomes. Chromosomes cooperate in eukaryoticcells. Cells cooperate in Multicellular Organisms. Multi Cellular Organisms cooperate in Humans. Humans cooperate in Families and Tribes and Families and Tribes cooperate in Organizations … Continue reading About Darwin’s Superorganism

About the Triple Goddess

The Ancient Greek in the person of the famous philosopher Aristotle viewed Women as Imperfect Men. Women were inferior in Strength and the Powers of the Mind. Last but not least women were Without Soul. Therefore Women had to submit to the Rule of the Male Sex. The views of Aristotle became the basis of Western Science and were codified in the teachings of the Catholic Church. To stop the destructive effect of female dominance the old myths were rewritten. The Positive qualities of Female Deities were simply transformed into a Negative quality. The Female Goddess became a wicked, old … Continue reading About the Triple Goddess

About Virtue and Wisdom

When you lend somebody something you assume he (or she) will give the item back in due time. To lend you have to Trust somebody. There are many ways to create a trusted relation. When a long term trusted relationship grows out of a long chain of interactions the Iterated Prisoners Dilemma is at stake. The Chinese are the Masters of Playing this Game. In some situations it is very clear that a try-out is not necessary. If we look at the cultures of the Earth we can see that the concept of Family or Tribe more or less guaranties … Continue reading About Virtue and Wisdom

About the Renaissance

The Renaissance was a Cultural Movement that spanned roughly the 14th through the 17th century. It started in Italy in the late Middle Ages and later spread to the rest of Western Europe.  After the Dark Middle Ages, controlled by the Church of Rome, aimed at the Inside (Spirit and Soul), many people wanted to discover the Outside. The Renaissance is the Age of Discovery. It is the time of Columbus. The printing press, invented in 1450, made it possible to distribute all the new knowledge all over the known world. The new knowledge is in reality very old knowledge. … Continue reading About the Renaissance

About Subsidies

Around 1993 I became responsible for Subsidy Management at ABN AMRO. The whole thing started when the bank contracted a specialized company called PNO. I was asked to coordinate their activities in the Bank. First you have to write a proposal (estimate time (including advisor). When you get a subsidy you have to spend time reporting (estimate time). The sum of both multiplied by the price per hour result in the costs. Multiply the sum of subsidy by the chance you get the subsidy. A simple way to do that is to estimate the amount of contenders. This gives you … Continue reading About Subsidies

About Free Will and Free Choice

The Causal, Linear, chain of Time as a Flow is an Illusion.   We are Moving in a Network of Events with each “event”, having its own measure of location, and its own measure of time, with reference to other events.   We are living in a Universe where every point in Space is represented by an Event.   We are always in the Now. Past and Future are a construction of our internal Calculation Engine (the Cerebral Cortex).   The Universe is also equipped with a memory and the memory of the Universe is Moved By the Potential Energy … Continue reading About Free Will and Free Choice

Why Politicians are Afraid to Play the Game of Politics

Will McWhinney defined six games. In the previous blogs I told you about the Game of Life and the Analytical Game. In this blog I want to tell you about a very special game called the Game of Politics. The game of Politics is a conflict between the worldviews Unity and Social. Unity is the world of Norms and Social is the world of Values. Many people consider the Game of Politics a “dirty” game. They don’t like politics at all. It is a dirty game because many people that call themselves politicians are formulating and enforces rules (by the … Continue reading Why Politicians are Afraid to Play the Game of Politics
