Military Juntas are Cool Again !

Look, the real story of those years is not told in the books.  The military never bothered anyone unless they were leftist agitators or were committing violence.  Even our president now [Dilma] was detained for participation in making bombs.  Why doesn’t the media talk about that?  They don’t, ever.  There were demonstrations all the time.  One day we woke up and there were tanks in the streets.  That’s how it was.

But I can tell you one thing:  the military in those days were actually less corrupt than the rats we have now.  They cared about power and order, not so much about getting rich.  And those stories about pregnant women in Argentina in detention centers?  Let me tell you that a lot of them deliberately got pregnant because they thought it would get them released.  So a lot of it is propaganda.

There was a real war there.  To win a war, you have to be ruthless.  It’s fashionable to hate the junta, to hate Pinochet, and our own dictators, but the economies we have now we owe to them.  And that is the reality.  The real mistake the junta in Argentina made is that they lost a war to Britain.  Nobody has anything good to say about those who lose wars.

Those rubber fascists with their helicopter taxis weren’t so bad after all, I mean they were fighting leftists, the very spawn of Satan!
Let us forget about all those clandestine torture centers, of the genital electrocutions and the Desaparecidos.

Fascists apologists…. Is the Alt-Right showing its true colors?

Toward a Neo-Tribal Philosophy Part 2: Nihilism-Free Living

One of the major hurdles of living in a scientific secular society is the subtle sense of nihilism that pervades everyday living, even the dumbest proles can feel it because in our subconscious we realize that we’re still living as peasants despite all our modern “enlightenment” and technology.

Human beings are not adapted for urban living among millions of strangers and without the constant struggle for survival they lose purpose, a purpose that must be filled somehow.Survival is guaranteed by the endless repetition of monotone task, the resource surplus is so great that parasitic elements flourish like cancer inside the cracks of society.

Historical evidence points out that monotheistic religions arose in times of great urbanization when strong social control was imperative for the survival of the community.
With time a priest-caste arose and created complex rituals and rules increasingly delusional and rigid, culminating in the concept of an afterlife of a sort, this fantasy degrades the material world (reality) to a mere “testing ground” of a sort.

To the rational observer and thinker it is clear that the concept of God is a surrogate Father figure for weak-willed adults: a paternal figure who instills unquestioning discipline, rules, and purpose; Given the overabundance of weak willed manchildren, a flock under a common faith can provide nearly unlimited manpower to sly opportunists & charismatic sociopaths alike!!!

Throughout history, many valiant attempts have been made to find an empowering philosophy that could give purpose without the need of cognitive dissonance & mental gymnastics.
I will list a few that are significant & modern (you can write any addition in the comment section):

Environmentalism/Gaia Theory: it recognizes that humans are part of the natural world and that endless growth and “progress” will destroy Earth’s ecology spelling our doom.
While the Earth’s ecosystem is a very complex system there is no proof it has a “will” of its own or that it “cares” about humans in general.
Pro: It can help to curb over-population, pollution, stress from modern living.
Cons: It degenerates into a cult of nature for its own sake and it gives little value to Sentience, the greatest achievement of the universe.

Pacifism: A very good ideology in theory if all aggressive individuals are purged somehow.
Pro: Essential in large societies to maintain social peace & very practical for the development of “advanced” scientific or cultural endeavors.
Cons: It violates basic human nature, it leads to the domestication of humans.

Ubermensch: Individuals will create their own moral code to live by.
Pro: Excellent for small tribes of like-minded individuals, rejuvenating for the human spirit.
Cons: Impossible to apply to large societies, high inter-tribal conflict is inevitable.

Toward a Neo-Tribal Philosophy Part 1: The Hurdle of Religion.

For ages social control has been achieved through compliance to organized Religions, in particular, monotheistic creeds like Islam, Judaism & Christianity have been able to extert a tight grip over their practising societies; More importantly these dogmas have endured for millenia unlike 20th century Totalitarian ideologies ( mere fads by comparison).

A dedicated Priest class is able to shape the rituals & world view of an entire people, most religions share these traits:

  • Belief in the elusive existence of an Ultimate Authority Figure & Creator of the world.
  • Simplistic made-up explanations of natural phenomenas, everything works because “God” wills it.
  • The demand for complete submission to God and of course his representatives on Earth.
  • Hostility towards competing creeds & “unbelievers”.
  • Reliance on Faith & Belief instead of Logic, Reason & Reality.
  • An almost viral need to convert all individuals to their creed.
  • Resistance towards change & denial of all conflicting evidence or facts.
  • Belief of the existence on an afterlife reserved for all “true believers”.

A system like this is fit for churning out mindless automata not intelligent & responsible individuals but Priests are good salesmen: they paint their dogma as stress-relieving, “empowering” not as a pervasive domestication tool; Believers can avoid personal responsability since everything that happens is God’s work.

Religious people like to cherry-pick instances where their Holy Books “predict” or should I say guess events or contain legitimate knowledge, given the lack of consistency they are no more “right” than a broken clock (that is right twice a day, as the saying goes).

Mankind’s first religions were based on simple make-believe explanations of natural phenomenas, for millennia the absence of the scientific method and adeguate instruments prevented the accumulation of good data & knowledge.

The very first rituals like offerings and sacrificies were utilitarian in nature and purpose, they followed this simple formula:

sacrifice [X] to deity [Y] to receive advantage [Z]. Example: sacrifice goat to Farming Deity to receive a good harvest.

On the other hand Philosophy is a “lens” through which we can see and interpret reality & explain abstract concepts; Since science is “only” a tool to test hypotheses and gain knowledge it’s still up to us to decide how we are going to use knowledge.

Quantum Medicine Quacks Explained

21st Century Gurus for Fun & Profit !

“Like everything else, science also has power politics because it is done by people, not logical automatons. Like elsewhere, power also accumulates in its institutions and develops inertia of its own. But science itself presents studies that make its community aware of these imbalances. It is one thing to rail at the human failings of science, but entirely another to rail against scientific process itself as a religion.”

“Quantum Theory is a difficult area of physics. Even physicists are humble in their claims of fully understanding it.It is an unintuitive and complex mathematical theory that does not lend itself to rhetorical expression. Several attempts have been made to state it in plain language, all of which seem to have done more harm than good (the absurd von Neumann–Wigner interpretation was perhaps the most damaging and was the basis of most pseudo-science that arose from the area), to the public understanding of science. To think that one understands quantum mechanics by reading these interpretations is closer to thinking that one understands the issues of robotics by watching Transformers movies.”

“But particle physics is not what happens in human bodies for the simple reason that particles get liberated from atoms at only high energy states. Since our body does not have mini particle colliders, understanding biology and its chemistry at the level of stable atoms and molecules has been quite adequate. But should a case to go beyond atoms present itself in the future, before we can have quantum medicine, we must have a robust quantum biology. The lack of this never bothered “quantum healers”.”

UPDATE!!! Face to Face with a Quack

One of my associates bought a pair of those magical quantum machines from China for the “fair price” of 350€ considering that they’re sold at 12000€ in my country, it could be profitable to resell them.
The machine consists in a pair of headphone connected to an electronic device with a fancy archaic connector also Junk Software with pretty animations is included with the product: all it does is generating random diagnoses based on inputs from the user such as Age, Gender etc.

I volunteered for a free diagnosis & these are the results:

INPUTS: Male, 20-30 years old.

Health Report:

Nasal Obstruction (I actually have it).
Severe Vaginitis ( My phantom vagina must be in severe pain ).
High Blood Pressure ( No I don’t ).
High Trygliceride ( Nope but many other people do ).
Blindness ( I am Mr Magoo ).

Best of all I appear to have delayed menstruations.

When asked for any proper scientific findings he started to ramble about how BigPharma is conspiring against this wonderful invention, ironic since he displayed signs of having simple paranoid delusions.

He started to claim that I know nothing because I don’t have a degree (not in medicine, mind you ) and he does so I should shut up and believe it without a SINGLE scientific explanation because if I don’t I am a “close minded” fanatic ( so much projection going on here ).

Since a single diagnosis was correct he started to ramble about it’s clear accuracy !
Like broken clocks are “right” twice a day so are Quacks for all the wrong reasons but that’s all they need: post-hoc rationalizations & magical thinking.

The solution is simple:
Be open minded only with other open minded individuals. Much like the Geneve Convention should be applied only to those who signed it.

My project

Hello,

I would like to show our readers my rotary hydroponic system project.

http://www.indiegogo.com/rotaryhydroponic

Since I am currently unemployed, I have lot of free time and I would like to put my skills to good use so any contribution to my project is welcome.

Hydroponics

This is the first of a series of articles on hydroponic growing tecniques, in this article I am going to introduce you to the advantages (and disadvantages) of hydroponic culture, this type of culture is very useful for those of you that want to grow pesticide-free, sustainable, nutritious fruits, vegetables and herbs indoor (closets, small rooms). Modern food is often polluted by chemicals, hormones and it is often deficient of many essential nutrients like vitamins and mineral salts. Growing plants and herbs that are rich of these essential nutrients is relatively cheap with hydroponics. You can even grow fresh fodder for cattle in order to produce high quality meat , cheese and milk.

My next articles will also cover more complex arguments like homemade fertilizers, greenhouse culture, aeroponics and how to build lighting and irrigation systems. There is quite a market for over-priced equipment and fertilizers so it is important to learn how to build your own in order to save a lot of $$$, this requires only basic skills.

For those of you that aren’t adept at basic horticulture I have included a series of links to books that explain basic information like: how plants grow, how photosynthesis works, why PH is important for plants etc You can find this links at the end of this post, I have also included links for some very important books about hydroponics.

INTRODUCTION

Hydroponic is a type of culture in which all nutrients are supplied to the plant through the irrigation water, with the growing substrate being soilless (mostly inorganic). In open systems the nutrient solution is discarded after it pass through root mass/medium while in closed systems the solution recirculate.

ADVANTAGES

Crops can be grown where no suitable soil exists or where the soil is contaminated with disease.

Labor for tilling, cultivating, fumigating, watering, and other traditional practices are largely eliminated.

Maximum yields are possible, making the system economically feasible in high-density and expensive land areas.

Conservation of water and nutrients, closed systems cause no form of pollution.

Complete control over the growing environment.

DISADVANTAGES

More expensive than traditional soil culture.

Require basic skills in various disciplines: electrical, plumbing, chemistry, horticulture.

The plants react very fast to poor nutritious or bad enviromental conditions.

Disease can spread very quickly if proper care is not given.

Not all plant cultivars are suitable for hydroponic culture.

THERE ARE 2 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING

Number 1

This culture is very profitable for off-season high value crops, for example basil, cherry tomatoes, peppers and herbs during the winter. If you can sell your harvests to gourmet restaurants and farmer-markets you can recover your growing costs very quickly. You can grow different high quality crops in only 1 square meter using a shelf-like structure or rotary hydroponic systems.

Number 2

Lighting costs are very high:

Fluorescent tubes, High Intensity Discarge Lamps can be bought at a fair price BUT they are inefficient, consume a lot of electricity and most light bulbs/tubes don’t come in the right light spectrum therefor up to 60% of emitted light is wasted. They contain mercury and HID lamps generate a lot of excess heat; They also require expensive reflectors and ballasts for optimal use. It is important that you use these lamps only for herbs and leaf vegetables if you want to grow tomatoes or other crops that require a lot of light you must build a LED Array with blue and red leds (with 10% yellow/green light).

LUMENS ARE USELESS FOR PLANTS LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS, you need to use PAR WATTS / square meter or microeinsteins. Plants require mostly blue and red photons for photosynthesis, you only need 10% of yellow-green light, most commercial lights are in the yellow green spectrum.  There is a lot of bulls*it in horticulture marketing especially regarding grow lights sold at hydroponic shops, most of these lamps are industrial lamps with just a different label.
