Counting Sheep .

Counting Sheep .
Andre Willers
31 Oct 2009

Synopsis :
Non-numerative counting plays an important part in predator-prey relationships in the physical , financial and intellectual worlds , as well as neurology and sleep .

Discussion :

Non-numerative counting:
Every sheep farmer knows this : herd the sheep in bunch , leave an opening and count them as they jump through in bunches . But the number in a bunch is not counted in a 1,2,3 etc fashion .

The mind is sort of uncoupled , and the primitive counting brain-mechanism does the job . This is hard to describe (our language does not have the detailed vocabulary ), but I have done it . Every sheep farmer has done it . Most of the people reading this has seen it done . It is a simple , learned skill , probably easily taught via computer screen. See previous posts on Primitive Counting and animal counting .

This process fatigues the neurotransmitter senders and receptor sites .

Famously , counting sheep will send you to sleep . It will , if you count the sheep in bunches . Until the system gets trained .

This leaves the problem of communicating the count .

See the excellent book "How Mathematics Happened: the first 50 000 years" by Peter S Rudman (ISBN 978-1-59102-477-4)

The bases usually used are 10 and 20 . The Babylonian base 60 is a combinations of abacus bases 10 and 6 in sequence . An intriguing hint at neurotransmitter fatigue before general schooling .

Arithmetic is more fatiguing than algebra . Neurotransmitter fatigue .

Click and neurotransmitter fatigue .
An initial one-to-one correspondence between the click and the counted item will quickly lead to fatigue of the tongue and neurotransmitters . Hence the grouping of numbers ( See Schmandt-Besserat on counting tokens in the early civilizations) .

As discussed in "Click , Lies , Hope and Sex" ,
Abstraction led to lies . As we secretly suspected , abstraction , and thus lies , only became possible on major scale with accountants . But hope as well .

What would you rather have : No hope and no lies , or hope and lies ? There is no middle way . In any case , any abacus-type counting (ie wealth) will immediately give rise to abstractions and thus lies . Poverty and honesty is, unfortunately , closely linked .

Hence accountants and lawyers .

A fascinating aside :
On page 123 of National Geographic of June 2009 is a photo of counters and a dice from the Belituck shipwreck of the Tang dynasty (Circa AD 826)

The dice can come from Las Vegas today , but the counters (chips) date back to Sumer . Gamblers are an extremely conservative lot . (Note Mongols , playing cards , printing and gambling. )

(See p92 and p93 of "How Mathematics Happened: the first 50 000 years" by Peter S Rudman (ISBN 978-1-59102-477-4) or Schmandt-Besserat on counting tokens in the early civilizations .)

The chips shown in the photo from the Belitung wreck (described as "ivory acorns") appear to be of 1 , 60 and 600 denominations according to the old Sumerian counters. High stakes .

Not many dice have survived , probably because there were not a large number to start with . It is quite difficult to get balanced (fair) dice when everybody is trying to cheat . The Chinese probably charged a premium for guaranteed fair dice , hence the very characteristic appearance and indented holes as numbers . A high-value trade item .

Which makes one wonder at the role gambling played . Remember , these were all civilizations with highly developed systems of Astrology (ie Luck masquerading as Destiny) . Hence the short half-life of fair dice .

Is there any record of lotteries?
A large city like Babylon could easily support at least three number rackets .
Gambling spreads literacy faster than any educational system .

To get back to Prey in large numbers:
They flash countable markers and flee (eg buck or sheep prancing . )
The optimum strategy for individual survival .

In small numbers they turn and confront the predator .
Quorum systems are applicable , and can be quite dangerous to even large predators .

The predator can be a bank , financial advisors , academic supremo's or political bigwigs . The systems can be exactly described and boundaries of behaviour ascribed

Music and counting .
Low neurotransmitter fatigue arithmetic and music are different sides of the same coin.

It is interesting to speculate that the latest financial instability was basically caused by iPod .
Quorum counting systems in the financial prey changed irrevocably .
Prey behaviour changed .
Predators who continue on the "business as usual" approach is headed for extinction .

Domestication :
This taps into this mechanism . Isolate into small groups and surround by natural predators . The quorum prey behaviour changes .

Mozart , anyone ?

Moire Patterns .

Moire Patterns .
Andre Willers .
25 Oct 2009

Synopsis :
Seeing what is not there : the pattern . A superior visual training system .

Discussion :
A pattern is an algorithm relating elements .
See "Integrated click"

Windows Media Player . Right-Click on the black and goto , This gives an analogue of Itarin or visual training systems slaved to sound .
The picture is the sound with a simple transform into 3-dimensions . Watching it for about 5 minutes triggers major transform-correlations in the visual-auditory system .

Make sure your ears are clean and have no hairs . "Beautiful ears"

The Amazing thing :
You see Moire patterns in the central square plane of pixels . These were not designed in , but a result of the musical transforms rotating the plane .

The important point to note is that this pattern is creation of the observing eye . It has to see the whole thing at once to observe the pattern . There is no pattern inherent in any single pixel .

The information processing is done in the retina and hind-brain . Final assembly in visual cortex .

The rotation through a new dimension gives an attacking point to bootstrap up through dimensions even from a plane viewpoint .

For our normal 2-dim system focusing on the Moire pattern on the plane rotating through 3 Dim trains the retina-brain better than Itarin as far as edges and curves go . Maybe corners too .

Visual acuity increases immediately to first learned default . I mean immediately .
(I did use click and tapping)

The pattern recognition algorithms triggered in the retina are far better using Moire patterns . In hindsight , obvious .Only virtual systems are activated and trained in the retina and related neurons .

What is interesting is that the first stop of the system is the normal , one foot from the page learned in youth . It focuses well there , but is not very flexible around it . Obviously , some more training is needed (This is after about 10 mins of training , my boredom threshold) .

The effect seems to persist , so some long-term potentiating did take place . I was clicking and tapping , too . Who knows . See if the effect persists tomorrow .

Auditory systems in the short frequencies should have improved as well , but I have no easy way of testing this .

Clicking :
This is extraordinarily hard to coordinate at first . I still have not mastered the double click to fit in with the music and tapping .

Like rubbing your belly circularly with one hand , while moving the other forward and back on the head (an old test) .

After mastering some modicums of click , the rubbing test went without any feeling of strain . Not even effort or concentration . I was surprised . I could do it before , but had to concentrate . Now I just did it , like normal .

I can only imagine that communication between left-lobe and right-lobe of the brain had improved at the level of hand-arm co-ordination . Since my corpus callosum is hopefully still the same , information carried by pressure differentials seems left .

Click .

Very interesting . I just tried to write with my left hand and compared it to my normal right hand writing . About the same , but some feeling of strain in the left hand .

By Gad ! Don't tell me this actually works !!

The Owl Maneuvre .
The Algorithm :
1.Center head and eyes.
2.Keep plane of face steady and move head left (like an Egyptian dancer)
3. Keep plane of face steady and move head right (like an Egyptian dancer)
4. Keep plane of face steady and move head up (like an Egyptian dancer)
5.Keep plane of face steady and move head down (like an Egyptian dancer)
6. Keep plane of face steady and move head to center .
7. Go

This stretches the neck and is good for stress .

This is a hardwired orientation algorithm . Owls use it just before they fly through a heavily wooded area . It obtains maximum information about distances and orientations . If you double-click during each phase , timing is greatly facilitated .

Use this in training at various distances from the screen above .

Reflex speeds :
I have no testing facilities , but from the quick response to even minuscule training in click , there should be a marked response .

From cloppity-clop to clickety-click

A4 vs US Letter Papersizes .

A4 vs US Letter Papersizes .

Andre Willers

Written : 28 June 2007

Edited and Published 25 Oct 2009

An old note I did not bother to publish then .

Sources : for standards . “Prodigy” series for brain mechanisms that count . for any related queries .


The paper size routinely used by a civilization determines the stimulation of specific brain-nodes concerning counting and mathematical ability . Because of close neurological connections , language and musical talents are also affected .

Discussion :


Quote: from

“Note: The Lichtenberg Ratio – used by the standard paper format series – is occasionally confused with the Golden Ratio (which Euclid referred to as the “extreme and mean ratio”).

The Lichtenberg Ratio is defined by the equation a/b = 2b/a = sqrt(2), whereas the Golden Ratio is defined by a/b = (a+b)/a = b/(a−b) = (1 + sqrt(5))/2. While aesthetically pleasing properties have been attributed to both, the Lichtenberg Ratio has the advantage of preserving the aspect ratio when cutting a page into two. The Golden Ratio, on the other hand, preserves the aspect ratio when cutting a maximal square from the paper, a property that seems not particularly useful for office applications. The Golden Ratio was for a while a more fashionable topic in the antique and renaissance arts literature and it has a close connection to the Fibonacci sequence in mathematics. “

Two fundamental constants :

The Golden Ratio(phi)= 1.618034… (found especially in growth of finite elements)

Euclids constant (e)= 2.71828… (found especially in growth of infinitesimal small elements)

Both give rise to internally consistent counting (arithmetic) systems , with corresponding neuron clumps in the brain . Usage makes these complexes develop .

By the definitions above , stimulation of the Golden Ratio Center means a better capability of handling finite (ie digital ) elements .

By the definitions above , stimulation of the Euclid Center means a better capability of handling infinite (ie smooth ) elements . Calculus .

The two centers are evolutionary separate and not mutually exclusive .

But cultural stimulation can have disproportionate effects .

Note that (e / phi) ~1.68 ~ (1 + 2/3 )

See the importance of the 1/3 ratio in "New Tools : Reserves"

The square root of (e / phi) ~ 1.3 . Refer to Lichtenberg ratio above .

Compare paper sizes in mm:

ISO A4 US Letter

210x297 216x279


297/210=1.414 279/216=1.3

Note that the ISO A4 ratio of Length/Breath is always = the square root of 2 by definition .

The US letter ratio of Length/Breadth is = the square root of (e/phi) ~ 1.3

This means that somebody continually handling and looking at US Letter paper sizes from baby upwards has a relatively better developed integer counting brain center .

Both counting centers are stimulated from babyhood .

Hence the US superiority in digital software and (to a certain extent) , money .

Remember , it does not take much of an initial advantage to build up into huge gap over a few centuries , especially a culturally wide influence like this .

A historical note :

Where did they get this ratio (1.3) from ?

Every US town until the end of the 1800’s had at least four or five newspapers. They continually experimented with book-formats , as well as their bread-and-butter stationery publications . The publishers also belonged to some semi-secret society like the Moose , the Elks , etc . These were heavily influenced (from Benjamin Franklin’s day ) by half-baked ideas in numerology , mysticism , etc . The ratio 1.3 is simply the geometric mean of two of the most fundamental growth constants known . So it is no surprise that the fittest should triumph out of this evolutionary stew .

What will be interesting is to see which format wins .

The Future.

Without the realization of how important this is , the ISO format would have won . Otherwise , the US format is clearly superior .

Artificial Stimulation of Counting Centers

The proven influence of two dimensional aspect ratio’s on the retina opens the way to some powerful interventions .

ITARIN can be easily adapted to different aspect ratios . So can TV’s and computer screens .

Scrolls vs Pages.

The concept of pages is essential to the development of printing . Note that the Sumerians and subsequent civilizations had a well-developed art of printing . Press-seals and roll-on seals were routinely used to validate routine items . Fixed-type impressments (prints) like these would have been essential for Imperial laws over the Empire . This type of printing survived over the centuries until the Mongols . (Playing cards)

Printing .

Every Empire used printing .

Chinese paper money .

Notice the Book of Kells in Ireland .

It has all the hallmarks of a mature technology .

This was produced by refugees from the turmoil of societal collapse in Europe . Yet a page format was retained . The printing (by woodcuts or stencils) is still crisp after about 1500 years . The fancy bits were done by hand .

It was not exactly a mass produced article .

Still , it would be a coup to find some of the original wood-cuts in some forgotten bog-peat hole . This is possible , even probable . The Church elders would have ordered the destruction of the original woodcuts and stencils, but humans being humans they probably ended up wrapped in suitably treated rags (peat embalming had been known for thousands of years) and stored in peat bog in a retrievable site .

Then the Vikings happened .

A nice little treasure hunt .

Moveable type is a different story .

Moveable type has been re-invented time after time . The concept has been around since Sumerian times . The metallurgy is simple (cast lead , one of humanities earliest workable metals because of the low melting point.) The ink is simple .

But the paper , the paper .

You need a strong , fine fibre .

For a mass media , you also need a lot of paper . Also , mechanical ways of preparing it . Roman ways simply were too low volume . Reeds like papyrus ? Forget it . Too coarse and expensive . Ink smears .

Why do you need a moveable type? If you are printing Imperial edicts or the bible , no change is needed .

Many monasteries printed things like complines long before Gutenberg . But the need for novation was small

You need novation for News . Something new . In other words a newspaper . And to make money at it , you need cheap paper . This is the single ineluctable fact that has not changed in the last 10 000 years .

The paper was originally supplied by the flax fields of Belgium and the Netherlands .

So why did this not drive the change earlier ?
Answer : the flax was primarily used for clothing . In a rising population , a newspaper would have to compete with clothing . It was not a paying proposition in a cold climate .

But then the Black Death , wars and the Little Ice Age happened .

Suddenly a lot of old clothes and unused flax-capability was available . To be fair , the Little Ice Age probably contributed the most . Agricultural areas that previously could grow food crops , now could only support a crop like flax, valuable for it’s stem fibres , not food . (Notice the ironic resonance with the American South and Cotton , when greed drove them to destruction.)

The result was a huge drop in the price of rags and flax .

Quality paper became cheap . Newspapers got above the threshold of profitability , then took off as the political implications were realized .

Of course , they were not called newspapers at the time . The media-moguls had not yet evolved to tell us what we think . They were called pamphlets . The cost was low enough that anyone could afford his own pamphlet . The result was very like the present Internet/Blog explosion .

Very few of these pamphlets survived (and if you have one , you can flog it for a lot )

Even kings weighed in .

Like King James the First's pamphlet blast against tobacco . One of the first anti-smoking Nazi's .

Then mass Spectacles .

See "The most influential human in the last 1000 years : Salvino Armolo D'Armati ."

Small print is not just the purview of lawyers . Publishers thrive on it . And for small print you need good paper , ink and mass spectacles so the middle-aged people with money can read it . Look at some books printed in centuries 1600 – 1900 . The print is very small . Really small . Even juveniles have difficulty in reading it . Glasses were essential . Those small jobbies you can buy in the pharmacy , then and now .

But small spectacles means that the whole page cannot be seen . So we have an expected decline in numeracy and increase in Literature , till about mid 20th century , when large glasses became cheap and large print became less expensive .. The same effect can be seen in Asian countries .

Literacy :

Funnily enough , not a major requirement . The very development of the alphabetic system stems from Egyptian mercenaries from the Middle East , Anatolia and Southern Russia using the easily learned phonetic part of the Egyptian hieroglyphic system to write home . Surviving messages from the mines in Sinai and outposts in Southern Egypt (scratched on rock as first attempts before putting them on precious papyrus – think telegraph rates) .

Not jewels of literature . But , even troopies learned very quickly to write . From nothing . How hard can it be , once you know it can be done ? More significant is that they expected that there would be somebody at the home-end to read it . Travelling scribes .

These messages home is a recurring theme in all ordinary surviving messages in the last 8 000 years .

Widespread ability and expectancy to be able to communicate via writing .

The village noticeboard was universal . Kingly decrees and news , interpreted by scribes (for a tiny fee , of course) .

It is amusing to speculate that the center stone pylons in Zimbabwe fulfilled this role . A noticeboard . Like the Greek Agora or Roman Forum , only on a more modest scale.

Obesity .

The effects on obesity has been discussed in "Escalators make you fat" 1 Oct 2009 .


So the next time the printer or photocopier jams , you can say with suitable vehemence :

"By the root of two or e over phi , get thee hence , thou gremlin .In the name of Euler and Euclid ."

The local shamans will applaud your perspicacity and learnedness .

And maybe the machine will unjam just as the horse starts singing .

Click , Lies , Hope and Sex .

Click , Lies , Hope and Sex .

Andre Willers

25 Oct 2009

Warning :

Pregnant women should not try Click languages .

Nobody is expert at the moment .

Do not do it .

It is like taking your big belly to the Casino and putting parts of your baby up for collateral on the slot machines .

Synopsis :

Click-languages , being both a mode of perception and a language , are not good at abstractions . In-Utero fetuses were programmed by Click languages (by it's very nature) . The transition between Click and non-Click languages will then tend to be very abrupt .

Discussion :

1.Lies and Abstractions :

Because Click is also a perception modality , it is difficult to lie using it . Likewise , abstractions are difficult , since an abstraction is a lie .

Abstraction : Carefully chosen parts of a set is substituted for the set . The Sketch represents the reality . This is difficult in Click .

2.Art .

Since Art is an abstraction , we can track the growth of non-click languages by the growth of art remnants (cave paintings , pottery , etc)

3.Sex .

The oldest lies :

"I love you"

"The cheque/dividend/return/vote-return is in the mail"

These are to obtain present advantage for promises of future quid-pro-quo behaviour .

Why are these so successful ?

Well , it is very difficult to make these statements in Click . Click will require a concrete reference . No abstractions , thank you .

The descendants of non-click languages will be more numerous , even beyond carrying capacity .

The females are left scurrying around to increase the food-supply . Hence agriculture .

Sigh . As usual , we have got it the wrong way around .

Populations did not increase because of agriculture . Population increased first because of lies about Love , then agriculture was invented to feed the children .

But why , after 30 000 years , are these lies still believed ?

Science and Technology :

Systematic investigations of "What If" statements requires a abstraction language to try out the lies . The successful results get incorporated in Perceived Wisdom . This has been going on for at least 30 000 years , and probably earlier . The main Human invention .

You try and domesticate a wild animal species , or breed higher yielding crops or even make cassava edible .


Hope requires a fairly sophisticated abstraction machinery and time-projection . In other words , lies . Yet it has been driving human sophonts for at least 30 000 years .

The only game in town .

Because some of the "What If" things became true .

The lotteries are exact analogues : not the main prizes , but all the consolation prizes .

Even the also-rans can benefit .

And in evolutionary terms , it is not a zero-sum game .

The politicians do not sell a steak , they don’t even sell the sizzle . They sell the hope of whiff of the fragrance of the sizzle .

But Hope trumps all .

Note that systems which has very significantly reduced the Hopes of grandchildren have all come to a sticky end . Eg French , British , Russian class systems .

The US class system is in the throes . What will emerge is an interesting guess .


The only reliable method of number-control . Widely practiced in the remnants of click-speakers like the San (when click-birth control fails) . But if a lying technique like Hope is available , forget it . The mammalian evolutionary bonding is too tight , and will use every little loophole .

Click Birth Control :

Click involves programming phenes ( the epigenetic factors governing gene activation or inactivation) . A female could then spontaneously abort by using the correct sequence of tongue-clicks (suitably dressed up as ritual , of course) .


The growth and paring of neurons in the fetus brain is influenced by clicks transmitted through the amniotic fluid , even before birth (especially last trimester)

A mother speaking click will significantly biase neuronal connections in favour of click . Since Click is not good at abstractions , this explains a lot about the slow rate of change before non-click languages . And why lies are still the rage .

Fashions :

The lie of the week / month / year /century/etc.

Paradigm-shift is the term used to describe moving from one lie to another .

Note that the paradigm shift from Click to non-Click languages must have been very attractive to a woman . Not just the lies , but more children . And Hope .

Is Hope a lie ?

Yes and no .

Look around you . Billions of humans . Towering caves . Enough to eat and drink for most . Really fast horsies and big clubs . Paleolithic heaven .

We Hope that it will become better .

Integrated Click .

Integrated Click .

23 Oct 2009


Integrate Finger Tapping , Visual-Auditory systems and Click with Intensional Clenching . This brings about some elements of voluntary control .

Discussion :


1.Finger Tapping: "Human Nails" 2007-08-17

2.Itarin : "Hearing 4:Visual and aural Feedback training" 2009-07-17

3.Click Language "Death of an Ur-Language" and later posts . 2009-10-09-10

4. Epigenes . "Click , Teeth and Bone"

The Algorithm :

This is zero-cost and low tech .

Play some upbeat music via Windows Media Player on PC .

1.Windows Media Player . Right-Click on the black and goto , This gives an analogue of Itarin or visual training systems slaved to sound .

The picture is the sound with a simple transform into 3-dimensions . Watching it for about 5 minutes triggers major transform-correlations in the visual-auditory system .

Make sure your ears are clean and have no hairs . "Beautiful ears"

2.Put bare or sock-clad feet on bubble-mat . Tap fingertips on forearms in time to the music .

3.Double-click tongue .

3.1 Mouth Closed : Internal feedback .

3.2 Mouth Open : External feedback .

3.3 Pulsing MouthOpen and MouthClosed .

This creates a bridge between internal body-states and external states .

Depression and other neuro-transmitter states :

Double-click tongue just with the mouth closed leads to depressive states , as there is not sufficient outside input to disrupt negative feedback basins .

It sounds ridiculous , but just opening and closing your mouth in this situation (listening to music, tapping and double-clicking tongue or talking while double-clicking and tapping fore-arms) will have major effects on mood-states , gene-expression and digestion .

Start with simple cloppity-clop melodies .

The system learns very quickly . It is , after all , hardwired in .

4.Low Pressure.

Occasionally , do the maneuver described in "Click , Teeth and Bone" . Block the nose and mouth , inhale to create a low pressure and click with mouth open and closed.

Sports :

Speeding up reflexes :

Do as above , but double-click tongue with mouth open about 2/3 of the time . The body is prepared to meet you outside of the 1/3 reserve levels .

The Zone :

Optimal performance . An avoidance of physiological depression .

Do the above and double-click tongue with mouth open about 1/3 to 2/3 of the time

Don't you feel better now ?


Suckling .

Suckling .

Andre Willers

23 Oct 2009

Synopsis :

Suckling predates mammals and dinosaurs , and led to the formation of feathers and milk-glands .

Discussion :

See "Click , Teeth and Bone"

As discussed , teeth evolved first in the throats of conodonts about 525 Million Years ago . Prey was gripped by some calcium growths in the throat and sucked in by reduced pressure in the digestive sack . This is a schema still used by a large number of animals .

This was useful , even if no prey was in the throat .

Pseudo-prey (the tongue) evolved to valve the pressure . Sucking was enhanced by pulsing .

Note the prevalence of tongues or tongue-like organs .

Jaws and rib-cages evolved to enhance the efficiency of the sucking process . The bony growths migrated to the front to form the jaws and teeth . And backward to form the ribcage and notochord .

Sucking marrow is not just a figure of speech .

This took place in water . Sebaceaous glands and feathers/scales evolved , where the major nutrients were recycled via the suckling process .

No animal can afford the continuous loss of oils involved in waterproofing without some recovery of nutrients . Suckling the skin (see bird or fish grooming) provided this .

Certain sebaceous glands in protected spots specialized in providing high-fat nutrients to offspring .

Some developed into breasts . Others remained in the throat and mouth , to enrich food regurgitated to infants . Mammals and Dinosaurs .

It should be easy to test whether food regurgitated into bird's fledglings are enriched , especially in the fatty acid group .

Low-pressure spots on the skin caused by suckling developed into feathers or hair .

An amusing conjecture :

Human baldness may be alleviated by cap with many alternating , low-pressure , click points . This should trigger stem cells . A real Victorian age contraption .

A purist would make it steam-powered .

A simple cap with holes in it whilst playing very loud music (varying pressures) will have a similar effect .

Why rock-bands have long hair ?

Click .

Pulsing click sounds evolved . Sea-sonar .

Not just outside the body , but inside it as well .

This became incorporated into the synapse structure (one of the reasons why we have such a seemingly clumsy structure as synapses) . The pattern of pressure gradients in the body (click) influenced the density of neuro-transmitters .

This is of particular importance in signal-transmission speed

(See "Memeristors ,Bloodpressure and Click)

as well as emotions and moods .

Depression and Click .

Indiscriminate use of Click in a body not adapted to it or not under guidance of somebody who knows what they are doing , and has serotonin re-uptake deficiencies will pulse in chaotic fashion . The therapist's function (or the language) is

to guide it into attractor basins .

Since the short form of the gene governing re-uptake of serotonin (the one that speeds it up) is so prevalent , depression is very likely after using Click even moderately . This is physiological . No amount of psychology will help .

Speculation :

It has been wondered why such a gene evolved . But if Click was widespread , it is natural and the frequency spreads can be calculated and correlated with genes enabling click-sounds (cf Fox-P genes)

What to do :

Click is evolutionary very old .

Once Click has been started , it is difficult to stop .

Epigenetic effects :

Genes get switched on and off , and should be in a pre-determined sequence . The system is very fault-tolerant , but if there is a weakness (like short-serotonin genes) , the compensations take longer to come on-line .

(Eg Sumo-wrestlers have a secret click-grunt language , so have Kenyan long-distance runners . All that !xu , !xo , !xi ,!xa , !xe , !xy yakkiting of Kung fu , Karate , etc . )

The Guru's have died a long time ago . Progress .

If anomalous depression strikes , take 5-HTTP (a Serotonin precursor) , and alcohol . This should kick the system out of the chaotic-basin it is spiraling into .

But it will return unless the system is placed into another attractor basin .

Like cults , religion , better click .

Listen to some San-click language . Translate early hieroglyphic languages into Click Basically , recreate Click language . Well within present Human capability .

See "Integrated Click"

Life sucks .

Click , Teeth and Bone .

Click , Teeth and Bone .
Andre Willers
17 Oct 2009

Synopsis :
Variable low pressures plays a major role in epigenetic switching on or off of jaw and skeletal genes .

Discussion :
Evolutionary speaking , teeth evolved first in the throats of conodonts about 525 MY . Prey was gripped by some calcium growths in the throat and sucked in by reduced
pressure . This is a schema still used by a large number of predators , notably eels .

The calcium-growths were so successful they migrated to the jaw-teeth complex and the notochord . We are all descendent from these animals .

Low-pressure .
Note the role of a low-pressure zone to activate some genes .

The system needs a low-pressure zone in the gastro-intestinal tract to activate some essential genes .

The easiest is the mouth .

Hence Click .
The tongue-click creates a low-pressure volume , activating calcium deposit signals in the jaw and skeleton .

Spacecraft :
The bone-loss experienced by space-travellers is not because of low gravity , but of lack of intestinal pressure differentials .

Aerobic exercise:
This involves gasping . Not enough oxygen . Lower pressures .

You can get the same physiological effect by clamping mouth and nose shut and inhaling . The result is a low pressure system in the lungs and gastro-intestinal tract .

This feels mildly uncomfortable , but if you double tongueclick at the same time , the energy consumptions immediately rises . After about three clicks you will feel extremely uncomfortable . Try it .

The idea is to trigger stem-cell regeneration in the gums The signals will proliferate down the intestinal tract .

There is an innate magnifier effect , very similar to the PCR effect that magnifies certain DNA sequences . Why do you think homeostatic temperature organisms are so successful ?

The temperature differentials are not much , but the pressure differentials are .You are fart-driven . But the inverse–farts are the most important .
The breathing system creates periodic low-and high pressure systems in the abdomen

.Do not eat fermented products or drink fizzy beverages while doing these exercises .

The algorithm :
1. Exhale .
2. Pinch mouth and nose shut .
3. Try to inhale (automatic) , while double-clicking tongue .
4. After about 3-4 double-clicks (seconds) , some discomfort .
5. Inhale and repeat process for about 5 minutes .
6. The idea is to activate genes via the low-pressure system . The 5-minutes is the threshold for long-term potentiating via the synapse-system .

Expected Results:
Something like an accelerated program of aerobic exercise .
Dental and gum easement .
Knobby bones .
The rest depends on how much chicken-fat you eat ..

Good Luck

Beautiful Ears

Hearing 5
Andre Willers
16 Oct 2009

Synopsis :
Hairs in or on the ears leads to loss of higher-frequency hearing .

Discussion :
The physiological reason :
The Earlobe is finely sculpted by evolution to channel all frequencies into the ear-channel .
Hairs in the earlobe reflects higher frequency sounds . Lower frequencies(longer wavelengths)bend around them . The hairs in the inner-ear sensitive to high-frequencies are not sufficiently stimulated , and stem-cell replacement degrades . This leads to a slow loss of higher-frequency hearing with age .

Solution :
Depilitate hair in the ear-lobe using something like Nair . No stubble should remain .

Sexual cues .
Young , sexually mature humans have no hair at all on the ear-lobes , but the normal complement in the ear-canal . This is a big turn-on for humans . (See posts on click-languages .) The ability to hear different frequencies clearly is a major survival plus .

Nobody likes a mouth full of stringy hair when trying to nibble or lick a paramour's delicious earlobes .

Feedback mechanisms :
The system is extraordinarily sensitive to scattering of high-frequency sounds by hairs on and around the ear-lobes .
The very design of the earlobe is non-linear . Human hearing is nearly as sensitive as human vision . We are talking quantum levels . Even a few hairs plays havoc with the whole feedback system .

This is one of the body's systems of governing old-age (ie sacrifices to predators: Felis Dino ) . See previous posts on body hair.

How to cheat :
Just use a depilatory in and behind the ear-lobes . Not inside the hearing-canal ..
Hearing in the elderly should improve in the range of 1/3 to2/3 , especially in the upper frequency ranges .(give about 6 months chance for the stem cells to kick in ) .

I have written exhaustively about this in previous posts , and am tired of repeating the obvious .

Here's clicking at you .

Earthquakes and Volcanoes .

Earthquakes and Volcanoes .

Andre Willers

15 Oct 2009

Synopsis :

Orbital dynamics , spin theory and chaos mathematics gives an adequate description for planetary systems .


Example Terra
The internal liquid core is helically intertwined in the orbital plane . At the interface , where planetary rotational effects become more effective , the conductive medium (magma) become twisted at angles increasingly at right angles to the core .

Reflection from the surface .

Resonance .

The two work together . The system resonates at 360 /n ( ie 360 , 180 , 120, 90 , 72 , 60 )

But 360 /7= 51.5267 . Not a resonance .

The basic resonance is at 60 degrees .

This tells us that helices in the core and magma are in a 60 degree angle , regardless of origin .

See the plasma plume under Yellowstone Park . It is at a 60 degree angle . Difficult to explain in purely gravitational terms .

Predictive value :

The three-dimensional resonances are at cos(60) *60 = 30 degrees.. These are sidereal accellarations .

From a known site of major earthquake , like Sumatra , the next ones will be in increments of 30 degrees longitude .

This is Turkey , Istanbul to be more precise . Stay away .

Funnily enough , the mouth of the Amazon seems to targeted for a major earthquake

If this goes , the Missouri Brakes will not be far behind . And then the San Andreas Fault .

A typical earthquake storm . A volcano storm like the Deccan Traps or Siberian Traps would normally follow . Not usually survivable , unless you can get off-planet .

Exunt humans .

Ansari Gens.

Ansari Gens.
Andre Willers
9 Oct 2009

Synopsis :
The Ansari Gens , as personified in the Ansari Prizes , is an attempt of the moderate Islamic world to rejoin humanity in the run-up to the singularity .

Discussion :

The Catastrophe :
The collapse of the Bronze age civilization , partially caused by overpopulation and accompanied by severe droughts and climatic disturbances (circa 3000 to 1000 BC) caused severe population disturbances in Egypt (Sea Peoples , abandonment of Sinai mines) , Middle East depopulation , Arabian Peninsula (depopulation) , Iran (invasion of Aryans) , India (Aryan invasion , displacement of South Indian civilizations to Yemen , and subsequent displacements to Africa . Abandonment of Zimbabwean colonies (see : Makgadigadi Sea" . )

Refugee populations from Southern India moved upward from Yemen into depopulated areas on the Red Sea coast of Arabian Peninsula . There they ran into the refugee herders and slaves from Egypt (ur-Hebrews) and survivors of the Egyptian mines in the Sinai (the Kenites) . Note that the Kenites were coppersmiths and metalworkers , reduced to nomadism as Egyptian support structures collapsed . Moses married the daughter of one during the Sinai wanderings .

It must have been desperate time for a bunch of pampered clients from the flesh-pots of Egypt .

The Ur-Aryan root word "banu" , meaning "junior offspring" still survives .
The morph:
Banu -> Ben -> Gen

Google "banu"

All three terms are still in general usage , meaning the same thing .
See Appendices B-D for Banu , Ben in Hebrew and Gen as in Roman genesis .
As expected , the Roman word would show the greatest mutation rate .

Genetic traces :
Alcohol :
Most of the Sinai metalworkers probably were descendant from South India
Ref Zimbabwe , Sheba .
Like most orientals , they lacked certain genes to handle alcohol breakdown products (note even present proneness to high blood pressure and diabetesII . )
See Appendix B about alcohol tolerance .

The Roman Empire .
The Arabian peninsula built up some capital during the empire . With the collapse of the western trade routes in the Empire around 500 AD , the huge over-production of wine in the Italian peninsula was routed to the Middle East at cut-throat prices . Concerned leaders and merchants were desperate . Hence the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) 's proscription on the fruit of the vine .
That Kenite weakness for alcohol had come back to bite them . Jewish social systems (twice-weekly schull monitoring also check for this)

Islam :
As can be seen , the Hebrew tribes from Sinai and the Arabian peninsula predate the irruption into what is today Israel as the climatic systems slowly recovered . By about 600 AD the Arabian peninsula was populated by an amalgam of South Indian and Egyptian populations , organized into Banu's (Ben's , Gen's) .
Very aggressively mercantile . Yankee trader or Viking .

Mohamed did incorporate the Jewish tribes in the Arabian peninsula (see Appendix C and D , the "Treaty of Medina" ) and tried hard to get the Sanhedrin on board.. But , after 132 AD (Second Jewish Revolt), the Sanhedrin was just a rubber stamp for the Romans or Byzantines . So , we sit with the mess today .

Mongols , Crusaders and the Church .

Both Mongols and Crusaders saw the Islamic empire as a nice juicy nut for heavy armoured cavalry . The Military-Industrial Complex of the time (monastries) sent observers . A nice job .

The Mongols did the most damage , destroying the heartland of the nascent Islamic civilization and technology . They did it by switching horses and armour .

Each Mongol had at least 20 horses . Carrying different things . Armour , food , etc .A Mongol could change from a light cavalry to heavy armoured cavalry , or even very heavy armoured infantry at will .
Even a small force could punch at varying weights .

A matter of logistics . Eisenhower would have approved .

There were church observers like fleas on a hound-dog . Mostly from vertically-integrated companies like monasteries .Hence the explosion of specially bred horses , donkeys and especially mules to enhance the efficiency of a multi-purpose military force .
Mules and Monsanto go together .

The Crusaders of the time were very limited . Not only was their technology not up to it , but they were severely limited by logistics .

So why don't we speak mongol ?
Ho-Ho-ho !
Low birthrate . Caused by saddles and stirrups . The lack of a split groove ! Stirrups!
The balls and vas is positioned directly above the maximum thumps .

The invention of stirrups caused a big drop in the birthrate of the equites .

This is not at all obvious .

Too stupid to make a little pocket for their balls and tubes . Although , I have to say , it took a century for bicycle-riders to invent a split saddle . Not to mention chairs .
Still not general .
Humans .
Note that the Roman saddle-horns cannot center the testes as well as stirrups .

Shit . It does change just about any human interaction with technology in history .
Back to the drawing board .

Stirrup-riders without split saddles seem to stabilize populations . The Mongol population remained stable at 700 000 from 1000 Ad to 1800 AD.

Epigenetic effects
The stirrup effect can last for generations . It is a wonder we have any aristocracy left.
The birth figures do looked very skewed

I have had about enough of humans .

The rest is yours .

According to the Hebrew Bible, the Kenites (or Cinites) were a nomadic clan in the ancient Levant, sent under Jethro a priest in the land of Midian.[1] They played an important role in the history of ancient Israel. The Kenites were coppersmiths and metalworkers.[1] Moses' father-in-law, Jethro, was a shepherd and a priest in the land of the Kenites and some accuse him of being a Kenite.[1] The Kenites apparently assimilated into the Israelite population,[2] though the Kenites descended from Rechab maintained a distinct, nomadic lifestyle for some time.
Moses apparently identified Jethro's concept of god, El Shaddai, with Yahweh, the Israelites' god.[1] According to hypothesis, Yahweh was originally the tribal god of Jethro, borrowed and adapted by the Hebrews.[1][3]


Appendix B

Rechabites - the descendants of Rechab through Jonadab or Jehonadab. They belonged to the Kenites, who accompanied the children of Israel into the holy land, and dwelt among them. Moses married a Kenite wife,[1] and Jael was the wife of "Heber the Kenite".[2] Saul also showed kindness to the Kenites.[3] The main body of the Kenites dwelt in cities, and adopted settled habits of life;[4] but Jehonadab forbade his descendants to drink wine or to live in cities.[5] They were commanded to lead always a nomad life. They adhered to the law laid down by Jonadab, and were noted for their fidelity to the old-established custom of their family in the days of Jeremiah (35); and this feature of their character is referred to by God for the purpose of giving point to his message to Judah.[6][7]
In 1839 the Reverend Joseph Wolff, who later went to Bokhara to attempt to save Lieutenant Colonel Charles Stoddart and Captain Arthur Conolly, found in Yemen, near Sanaa, a tribe claiming to be descendants of Jehonadab; and in the late nineteenth century a Bedouin tribe was found near the Dead Sea who also professed to be descendants of Jehonadab.[8]
The term Rechabites also refers to a religious order, similar in some ways to the Nazarites, and are mentioned by Eusebius of Emesa.[9]
In more recent times, the name has been used by Christian groups keen to promote total abstinence from alcohol, such as the Independent Order of Rechabites.

Appendix C


The Banu Najjar was one of the Jewish tribes of Arabia during Muhammad's era.
They were included in point 31 of the Constitution of Medina as allies to the Muslims, being as "one nation", but retaining their Jewish religion [1].

Arabian tribes that interacted with Muhammad
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Tribes of Arabia during Muhammad's era)
Jump to: navigation, search
There were several Tribes of Arabia that interacted with Muhammad.
The most prominent of such Arabian tribes were the Banu Quraish (Arabic for "Sons of Quraish") which were in turn divided into several sub-clans. The Qur'aish sub-clan of Banu Hashim was the clan of Muhammad, while their sister sub-clan, the Banu Abd-Shams became known as his most staunch enemies. After Muhammad, the Muslim nation was ruled exclusively through the Banu Quraish tribe, all the way until the Ottoman Turks came into power.
Other tribes include various ones that were centered on different cities, for example the Banu Thaqif and the Banu Utub.
Notable are the Jewish tribes that had settled in Medina, they would play a prominent part in Muhammad's life, this included the Banu Qurayza, Banu Nadir and the Banu Qainuqa, they participiated in the Battle of Bu'ath,although they had a truce and an agreement with Muslims not to join the opposing armies, but they broke them.
[edit] List
A list includes:
· Banu Quraish — prominent in the city of Mecca
· Banu Hothail —The Brothers of Quraish, and their neighbors in mecca [1]
· Banu Thaqif — the city of Ta'if, Urwah ibn Mas'ud
· Banu Jadhimah — the city of Ta'if
· Banu Utub — the city of Najd
· Banu Ghatafan — east of Yathrib and Khaibar
· Banu Tamim — central Arabia
· Banu Sa'ad

· Banu Daws — south of Mecca, Abu Hurairah
· Banu Abs — Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman
· Banu Bakr ibn Abd Manat
· Banu Jumah
· Banu Kalb
· Banu Khuza'a — between Mecca and Badr
In Yathrib (later Medina)

· The Al-Kahinan — they traced their descent from Aaron.[3]
o Banu Qurayza — sub-clan of the Al-Kahinan, Medina, "principal family"[3]
o Banu Nadir — sub-clan of the Al-Kahinan, Medina, "principal family"[3]


Appendix D

Abu Ayyub Al Ansari
Khalid ibn Zayd ibn Kulayb, known as Abu Ayyub Al Ansari, came from the Banu Najjar, and was a dear and close companion of Prophet Mohamed (PBUH).

He enjoyed a great privilege many of the Ansar in Madinah dreamt of having.

When Prophet Mohamed (PBUH), reached Madinah after the Hijrah from Makkah, the Ansar of Madinah greeted him with great enthusiasm, love and longing. Their hearts betted for him and their eyes surrounded him with great admiration and love. They wanted to receive him with the most hospital reception they could give.

Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) entered Madinah on his camel. The chieftains of Madinah walked next to him, each and every one of them hoping to get the honor of Prophet Mohamed’s stay at his house. They stood in the way of the procession and addressed the Prophet saying " O Messenger of Allah, please do accept our hospitable accommodation, for we are influential people who are great in number and wealth. We can also guarantee your support and protection.”

Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) mildly urged them to get out of the way of the camel, for it was ordered by Allah to stop at a certain place.

The camel stopped at an open space in front of the house of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari. But Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) did not get off the camel. After a few minutes, the camel started moving once again, however, it turned around, retraced its steps and kneeled in the same place where it stopped before. Abu Ayyub’s face shone with joy and satisfaction. He went out to Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) and greeted him with great enthusiasm. He took the Prophet's baggage in his arms and carried them so close to his heart as if he was carrying the most precious treasure in the world.

It was not the first meeting between Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) and Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari. They had met before when the Madinah delegation journeyed to Makkah to take the oath of allegiance to the Prophet (PBUH).

Abu Ayyub's house had two floors. He prepared the upper floor for Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) to stay in. however Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) preferred to stay on the lower one.

Night came and Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) went to sleep. Abu Ayyub ascended to his room, but when he closed the door, he shook with regret and told his wife:

"Woe to us! What have we done? The messenger of God is below and we are higher than him! Can we walk on top of the messenger of God? Are we standing between him and the Revelation? If so, we are doomed."

They were extremely worried, and had no idea what to do. They got some peace of mind when they moved to the other side of the building where they were not above Prophet Mohamed (PBUH).

In the morning, Abu Ayyub said to the Prophet(PBUH):

"By God, we did not sleep all last night, neither myself nor Umm Ayyub."

"Why not, Abu Ayyub?" asked the Prophet.

Abu Ayyub told him how terrible they felt because he was staying below them.

"Don't worry, Abu Ayyub," said the Prophet. "We prefer the lower floor because we have a lot of visitors.”

"We submitted to the Prophet's wishes," Abu Ayyub related, "until one cold night, the roof was damaged and the water spilled on the upper floor. Umm Ayyub and I stared at the water. We only had one piece of velvet, which we used as a blanket. We used it to wipe the water fearing it would seep through to the Prophet. In the morning I went to him and said, 'I do not like to be above you,' and told him what had happened. He respected my wish and we exchanged floors."

The Prophet (PBUH) stayed in Abu Ayyub's house for about seven months until his mosque and his dwelling were built. Thus, he became the neighbor of Abu Ayyub.

Abu Ayyub loved Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) with all his heart and the Prophet also loved him dearly. There was no formality between them. The Prophet (PBUH) continued to regard Abu Ayyub's house as his own.

These are glimpses of Abu Ayyub's life during peacetime, but ever since the Quraish tribe began to fight against Islam, to raid Al-Madinah, the land of Hijrah, and to instigate tribes and organize armies to eliminate Islam, Abu Ayyub became a professional in warfare. He was in the front rows in Badr, Uhud, Al-Khandaq and the rest of the battles and wars. He devoted himself, his money, and property to Allah.

He did not stay away from any battle the Muslims fought from the time of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) till the time of Mu'awiyah unless he was engaged at the same time in another.

Even after Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) died, Abu Ayyub never turned his back on a battle that the Muslims were destined to fight in.

The slogan that he kept reciting to himself day and night, secretly and openly was that verse of the Qur’an “March forth, whether you are light or heavy”.

He never missed an expedition, except once. He refused to fight in an army, which was lead by a young Muslim assigned by the caliph. Abu Ayyub rejected this choice. This one and only mistake shook his innermost self, and he was always full of regrets as he repeated, “It is none of my concern whoever Ali appoints.” Ever since he made this mistake, he never missed a battle.

It sufficed him to live as a soldier in the Muslim army, fight under its slogan, and defend its sanctity.

The last battle Abu Ayyub took part in was the one prepared by Mu'awiyah and led by his son Yazid against Constantinople. Abu Ayyub at that time was a very old man, almost eighty years old. But that did not prevent him from joining the army and crossing the seas as a graze in the path of God. In this particular battle, he was wounded. The commander of the army went to check on him. He was breathing heavily as if his longing to meet Allah made him impatient with the few minutes left in his life. The commander, Yazid Ibn Mu’aawiyah, asked him, "Do you need anything, Abu Ayyub?"

I wonder if any of you can imagine what Abu Ayyub’s last wish was?

He asked Yazid to carry his body to the furthest point inside the enemy lands and bury him there, then to break through the enemy line until he reached his grave so that Abu Ayyub might hear the sound of the galloping Muslim horses clattering over it and realize that they have achieved victory. Do you think this is poetic verse? No, this not a poetic verse nor a whim of imagination. It really happened. It is a fact that the whole world witnessed one day, and stood there watching and listening, not believing that this could be true. Yazid carried out Abu Ayyub’s will to the fullest extent.

Finally, the body of this great warrior was buried in the heart of Constantinople — Istanbul nowadays.

Jet lag and Click .

Jet lag and Click .
Andre Willers
8 Oct 2009

Synopsis :
A simple click evolutionary pathway to reset body-timers exists .

Discussion :

The invention of Click enabled proto-homonins to colonise caves .
See "Click and human evolution" and subsequent Click posts .

There was one teensy-weensy problem . The interiors of the dark caves were , well , dark .
This was before the invention of fire or the sentinel-clicker (see below) .

Coming out of the dark of the cave into the sunlight the homonin would make a simple click performance to reset the body clocks .

Otherwise , it is a laborious process , rendering the hominin extremely vulnerable to a smart Dino Felis , who has been co-evolving with it .

This took place over about two million years . A good example of the complementary culture and body-evolution .

The Algorithm :
1.Close eyes .
2.Open eyes
3.Immediately tongue double-click the estimated number of degrees the sun is above the horizon (seconds) .
4.Repeat items 1 to 3 at least 5 times .(long-term potentiatation plus sensitization)

This would have been mnemonized into a "Hail the sun , Father of the new day etc" in Click language . Common in Old societies .

What it did was to reset body-clocks .

Note that most old stone-age dwellings had an entrance facing East , so the declination of the Sun is immediately visible . (Location! , Location!)

Note that the base 60 is built into the heartbeat rhythm . Hence the 60x3x2=360 angles and time measurements . Egyptians had a fractal base 60 measurement of the year , day , hour and second we still use today .

Originally the old , lame or sick whose task was to keep on clicking one hard rock on another to provide echoes in the dark cave . The Sentinels .
If they stopped , it was an automatic alarm .
This evolved into the Priesthood .
Remnants are still around ("Ten o'clock and all's well" , rituals that have to be continuously performed ,etc)

Archeological evidence :
Look for anomalously worn hard rocks near the entrance of caves or inside relay distance . They will probably look like pestle-and-grinder , but long before agriculture
They are Clickers .

Dino Felis .
A sabre-toothed cat whose preferred prey was hominins . The reason why hominins hid in caves .
(Humans rendered them extinct as a first order of business after ropes (ie weaving) was invented)

Priesthood classes would then have a much better hearing (especially in higher frequency click ranges) than normal humans . The Sacred Language .
They were the frontline-clickers , and the first casualties if not alert enough .
Hence the evolutionary selection .

This can be tested on the Cohens , a priesthood class that probably retains genes for click-hearing . San or Bantu ?

See previous posts .

Artificial caves :
All humans live in caves . Called houses , flats , apartments , tents , yurts etc . So the above is still applicable .

Artificial lighting .
Homonins had another long period (about 1 million years) of fire . Light was available in the cave . The Clickers evolved into fire-keepers (on the way to priests) .
But the problem of immediate orientation of mind and body on leaving the cave intensified .

A statistically large percentage of homonins sticking their befuddled heads out of cave will tend to be eaten . There was heavy selection pressure on immediate orientation .
Click was it .

Flying Caves .
Also known as planes .
Why do think portholes are still included , against all reason ? Without them , jet lag will be really bad .

Flying Jet-Lag Reset Algorithm .
1. Ask the pilot for the angle of the sun from the East .
2. Close eyes , open eyes . Look out of the port hole and immediately double-tongue click the number of degrees . Stop .Repeat five times .
3. That's it .

Alcohol and Caffeine .
Caffeine is a dendritic accellarator and alcohol is an inhibition lowerer . With Click , they will speed the process . You can creep up on a deficit .

Hasta la vista , Irish Coffee !

Fuehrer Prinzip .

Fuehrer Prinzip .
Andre Willers
5 Oct 2009

Synopsis :
Ever wonder how technophobes like the Nazi's managed to create technology that was far in advance of their contemporaries ?

Discussion :
Capitalist/Communist : Capital is allocated at the start (the top)
Fuehrer Prinzip : Capital is allocated at the end (the bottom) .

The difference can be exactly calculated using the principles of Reserves (see "New Tools: Reserves" or compound interest .

The Bottom :
Individuals hacked out their little niches . There was no oversight process . Each idea was judged on it's merit and the pushiness of it's sponsor . The sponsor was rewarded by resources and prestige . This leads to an explosion of different ideas .

Each leader literally pushes his ideas . Whether it is rockets , tanks , guns ,etc .

As long as the society was on a roll , it works very well . When resources become restricted , it bombs . The victors take over the good ideas .

Cf Vikings , Mongols , Nazis

Contrast this with the Capitalist or Communist process , where resource allocation is done at the capital-allocation stage . At the start . At the top .

The Bottom Line and the Top Line.
Capital control societies are Top Level control societies . You have to prove returns on an investment before any money is spent . I emphasize this .

The result is predictable . Innovation stagnates This makes room in the competition space for real bottom-line societies .

This leads to pulsed societies , with Capitalist/Communist systems alternating with Fuehrer Prinzip societies .

Evolutionary speaking , this is optimal as you get the best of both worlds .

The Napeolonic and Nazi's were the result of the European Class-system .

So is the present fundamentalist challenge (Christian or Muslim).

Old Christian and Muslim asset allocation are Top-line .
Internet , Old-Napoleonic is Bottom-Line .

Examples :
Pre-agricultural , Celtic , Bantu systems are Fuehrer Princip societies . Bottom-line counts .
Agricultural systems , Roman ,Chinese Empires etc are Top-level societies . Capital is allocated at the top .

Note that both are stagnant . They lead to optimal troughs that cannot be surmounted from internal resources .

Reminiscent of water-empires . External shocks from wealth creation destabilizes the whole shebang .

Can both exist at the same time ?
The Chinese Experiment :
Room for the small ones to experiment .
To have different districts with different growth rates . Differential Top-line and Bottom-line . Individuals can fit themselves into the environment that suits them .
The cost of capital has to be manipulated for this to work . This means the flow of capital .

The results of this has been calculated elsewhere .But as a rough estimate , capital flow is approximate to a AC current after it has passed through a rectifier .

The net bottom-line growth is about 7% . As observed . See previous posts .

The Optimal Mix :
1/3 Capitalism , 1/3 Communism and 1/3 FuehrerPrinzip
2/3 Top-line capital allocation , 1/3 Bottom-line capital allocation .
Fairly close to present world democracies . Very stable and strong .

The top-line allocation ameliorates brutal competition , without losing the benefits . The 1/3 ratios are derived from infinite progressions .
See "NewTools: Reserves"

Messing it up :
You have to screw up the top-line (2/3) and the bottom-line (1/3) simultaneously . The odds of getting it right is about (1- (1-2/3)(1-1/3)) = 0.78 . Getting it wrong is about 22% .
Now you too can understand human history ,.
Every dynasty has 1/5 chance of getting it wrong.
The communists is just another dynasty ,

They have to work like blazes to maintain , and it is an exponential process .

No wonder Mao did the counter-exponential thing with the Cultural Revolution .
Did it work ? The jury is still out .

The revolution
You can calculate the odds from the Optimal Mix above .This is a fractal attractor . Regardless where you start off , the end is the same . Only the speed differs .

Your grandchildren are the end-results of these attractors .

The revolutions of the heart .
Almond eyes .
The floating hand
The backward glance
Stifled yawn .

Tojours !

Escalators make you fat .

Escalators make you fat .
Andre Willers
1 Oct 2009

The attempt by the body to reconcile reasonable speeds of motion (as on a travelator or escalator) with visual and muscle cues leads to negative energy usage : ie fat deposits .

Discussion :
See New Scientist 18 jul 2009 p31 "If you're in a hurry , dodge the travelator" .

Research and theoretical models has shown that people reconcile visual cues (ie the rate of travel) , body cues and energy expenditure to minimize energy expenditure .

Travellators at airports are slower than walking if there is even mild congestion .

If we drive it to extremes , like with escalators , the eyes report work being done , the muscles and nerves report nothing is going on . The system tries to reconcile this .

It thinks that this is Really Neat ! It can squirrel away this obviously unneeded energy as fat reserves . It is a switch .The effect is non-linear .
This is why kids love escalators . It boosts their energy reserves .

Lifts :
Not applicable , as there is no visual cue . You step into a box , and the box is moved .

Cars , trains etc .
The visual cues are disregarded , as outside possible walking parameters .

A Really Green Escalator .
Run it slowly in reverse , driving a generator . Charge the customers for a work-out , proceeds to go to a Green Cause (minus your expenses , of course) .

Slow transport :
Like in traffic , a tricycle or slow bicycle . Below a threshold perception speed , the effect kicks in .

Traffic congestion at around walking speed will make you fat .
The switch kicks in .

The value at which it kicks in :
Since humans had an episode of cursorial raptors in their ancestry , there is probably a fairly narrow range of speeds (a spike) where this kicks in .

I estimate it at between 5 to 7 miles per hour .The speed of a brisk walk or slow jog .
But experiments are needed .

Exercise Treadmills .
Sigh . These will just make you fatter .
Trying to reconcile the visual cues (going nowhere) and energy expenditure , the body simply triggers fatigue and you stop . The body squirrels the extra pulse of energy away as fat .

An application is in water-rescue . Humans last longer if they try to slowly swim somewhere instead of simply treading water . (Anectodal evidence) Easily tested experimentally .

Wii .
It will be interesting to see if partial Virtual Reality like Wii exercise machines can prevent the switch from kicking in .

Accelleration :
Humans have a very acute sense of acceleration . They have to . Walking would not be possible otherwise . These senses are mostly in the inner ear .

Linear acceleration :
Sports or occupations that involve big accelerations of the head (like rugby , boxing , etc) lead to obesity in later life . This has been explained away as being typical of the type of human that practices these avocations . But is it really ?

Note footballers , skiers , etc who do not have the same problem .

Rotational acceleration.
This would normally not trigger the response .
But , any pair dancing involves rotating around an asymmetric axis .

Pair dancing springs to mind (waltz , etc)
The male , being stronger normally leads and occupies the central space . The female is then subject to more linear acceleration .

Professional female dancers always have a weight problem , no matter how svelte they started out .

These have a major effect on obesity because of the peripheral vision interference .
The visual cues confuses the brain . Peripheral vision is normally concerned with motion and intensity of light .

Glasses changes this . At the rim of the glasses there is a discontinuity . Humans do no training for this , so the system interprets this as a velocity change related to the rotation of the head . But you are going nowhere . The system interprets this as negative energy expenditure and lays it down as fat . (As discussed above) .

So , if you wear glasses and look around a lot , you will get fatter .

Since at least 2/3 of people wear glasses , is there a way around this ?

Dark Glasses .
The variations of darkness triggers various perceptions of relative speed , which in turn triggers various speeds of laying down fat .

1.Wrap around .
Do away with the discontinuity of the rim . Note that pilots rarely become obese .
Note that contact lenses are not wrap-around . There is still a discontinuity at the rim .

2. Dark glasses . There are three types , depending on the person's condition .
2.1 Dark all round : only one available now . Better than nothing .
2.2 Darker towards the rim . Slows metabolic perception of surplus energy in bright light .
2.3 Darker towards the center . Slows metabolic perception of surplus energy in dim light .

Of course , we can make glasses that combine all three depending on the ambient light and the fat-index of the wearer . The technology exists and is not even expensive . It just has to be assembled .

"Wear these glasses and you will lose about 2 kg a month , or your money back "
Can be done .

Training :
Anyone starting to wear glasses should have a system of training to go with it to retrain the retina/brain . See "Hearing 4"
Just looking around does not hack it .

Sports :
A tennis player with wrap-around dark glasses darker around the edges will have a significant reflex-speed advantage in bright daylight .

The same with a soccer player with wrap-around dark glasses darker around the center at night under lights .

A golf player should enhance his score simply by wearing aviator glasses .

Interesting aside :
From above arguments , near-sightedness in middle age should lead to obesity , or at least overweight problems like diabetesII .

And you thought chicken fat was weird .
Ever seen a near-sighted eagle ?
