Terrorists Are Like Ant Holes, When you Destroy One Another Always Pops Up

          Ever since the attacks of 9/11, the United States government and military has gone on a war path across the globe in desperate need of finding and killing every last terrorist that was and is linked to the Bin Laden's terrorist group, and all others with direct and indirect contact with  Al-Qaeda.  While I find the killing of innocent people to be the biggest attrocity in this world, for it happens everyday across all walks of life both foreign and domestic, when is enough simply enough.  We the United States, a broke nation according those in office, still sign off on this global war on terrorism even after we've killed the man, the myth, the legend, Osama bin Laden.  We've spent trillions upon trillions of dollars on bringing this man and his supporters and followers down for their involvement in one of the most tragic days in American History, but when will this spending and killing frenzy stop.  I understand we need to protect the welfare of our country, but fighting terrorism is like trying to destroy every ant hole in your yard, when you contain one, another will always pop up somewhere else.  Killing people with Drones is an act of war, yet we never once declared war on any nation, but i guess we can go around policing the world as we see fit.  Fighting terror with terror never works in my opinion, for it just fuels the perpectual fire of either side to continue their barbaric acts of violence through concealment and rage.  Both sides have killed innocent people while taking down those who they wish to seek out and kill, and honestly being someone who views the world with reason and compassion, it is simply time to get out of the region and protect our own borders rather than go around the world trying to take out every terrorist group on the planet, for like I said, you cannot fight terror with terror and expect it to ever end!

What is Reality To Me?

          Reality, through my eyes and personal perception, is simply your brain's computation of the visible light and invisible sound around you in the seeable universe, but in in most cases simply the light you see visible from your plane of sight here on Earth.  The thing that truly interests me in this aspect of reality is the fact that even though everything around you is simple and concrete in nature, and for the most part unchangeable in terms of the laws of nature, the 7 billion people of this grand planet have 7 billion different perspectives and viewpoints on this unchanging consistency of the spectrum of light in which your eyes, your perceptual transmitter, view reality on Earth.  Though most of my blogs are just pure philosophy for the most part where ideas and pictures just pop into my brain's thought process for a few moments and are replaced rather rapidly by new ones, the concepts of what reality truly is something that keeps coming back to me day after day, but sometimes I am just too nervous to write and speculate about it outside my frame of thought to written words for my peers find me rather weird and abstract, so I  feel trapped in a world inside my own mind sometimes, which you too may find rather different and its ok.  To the average person, thoughts about reality are quite clear to them, what they see is what they see, what they feel is what they feel, and so forth.  If this is the case, then why do people view things in a manner that is opposite or different than that of the next individual?  Politicians do this quite frequently.  Their vision or perceptual view of the world is programmed in their brain in such a way that their parties view of the world is right while the others is wrong, and they will go as far as they have to go to program the minds of those of lay-people to perceive that their vision of reality is true, but really what is true and unchanging when everyone's view is different for no one has walked in their shoes and see what they see, feel what they feel, and do what they do. The brain, in my opinion, is like the hardware of the computer, where it can be programmed to see the world around us any way, shape, or form from the photons of light to simple electronic pulses or activity across the synapses of the nervous system.  The senses are simply the software of the computer, where it enhances our field of view or perception of reality.  I may be right or wrong on this matter, but it just makes sense to me, so if you feel opposed to my train of thought, simply take this with a grain of salt and throw it away.  You can train your mind to do anything over a period of time which shows that is much like a computer where if something is programmed or computed in your brain enough it simply becomes second nature to us that is why the proper care and teaching to our youth is so important, where as they get older their vision of reality shall collide with those individuals who see and react to the world in a different manner for they were brought up differently.  At the same time, aren't differences in each and every one of us the key to making the world go round for what's the difference between a human and a robot is our ability to interact with the world in a deep and complex way, so that our brain's computations of light and matter across our electronic grid I call the brain will never be the same as the next, but hey there might be people out there that want that singular mindset to have complete and utter control.

   I've come to realize that the only real, physical truth upon reality is this:  The laws of nature are simply the only real and unchangeable reality.  Numbers are the only real and unchangeable force of reality everything else is simply the reaction between the brain's transfer of light and matter into electronic computations that are created and fired in the brain to form the mold of our perceptual reality.  Now this is slightly off topic, but just popped into my mind at this particular moment in time: if the many worlds theory is correct and we live in a multi-verse of universes that collide, could our number reality (laws of nature) be a constituent of the previous universe that shared the same fundamental principles, while others that we don't react with have different laws that their universe abided by, or is this idea completely irrelevant?  I guess only time will tell!  Thank you for your time and energy.

The Product of the Whole Is Equal To The Sum Of Its Parts and Vice Versa

So first off, your probably wondering what in the world I mean by the title, "The Product of the Whole = The Sum of its parts.  In essence, this could mean a million different things.  In terms of our everyday lives,  when making a sandwich the sum of all the parts of the sandwich gives you the information of what the sandwich as a whole is made of.  Together, the information of the whole can be found only when the sandwich is completely done because before it is completed it is simply just your cheese, lettuce, meat, bread as seperate entities.  This may be a bad example so let me try again.  A tree is made up of bark, leafs, roots, and the wood that makes up the inner structure of the tree.  When you add up all its parts, its end product culminates in the full tree, therefore the parts of the tree may hold the information or bits of the whole because it is simply apart of the whole.  This basic concept has been of great interest to me lately in terms of our universe.  My mathematical skills are coming along at a slow pace simply because my life before my Mom got sick was simply that of a lazy and complacent individual who made excuses for my immaturity and transferred the blame to everyone but myself, but there's always that point in your life where you either give up or simply sky-rocket yourself to the fullest of your capabilities that you may have never known you had because your blinded by the crumbling effects of society itself, particularly my generation.  But let's look at the universe and see how this idea makes sense in my head. 

        As i've learned from reading books, watching lectures on YouTube, watching television programs in which some of the greatest minds in physics bring such complicated ideas to a generality in which most people can understand, and simply thinking logically in my own head,  The universe can be viewed as pixels or bits of energy and information.  As the sum of the whole changes into different forms over time from the infinitely small point of space scientists call the big bang singularity, and the weak force increases a system's entropy, it scatters everything we see  into superclusters, which break down to individual galaxies, which break down into billions of stars, which break down into solar systems, which break down into planets and other space objects, which break down to what makes up the planet which essentially breaks down into atoms, molecules, and compounds that make up what we see like water(H20), iron, and carbon.  These then break down into subatomic particles like protons, neutrons, and electrons.  Protons and neutrons which are only seperated by a slight change in its mass and spin then break down into quarks like up and down quarks or strange and charm quarks each of which has its own mass and spin.  Then they say at the smallest level, our world ends with what they call strings which can be made up of closed loops or one dimensional strings.  These strings vibrate and spin at a rate which is inversely proportional will respect to one another.  Now this is where i have soo many questions.  Are strings like quantum bits of energy that hold the information of itself and then the information of the whole universe all at the same time simply because it is apart of the whole?  It is possible that we live in a web of strings that are interconnected by electronic information that can shared instanteously because they are apart of a closed system that we call our bubble universe.  If this is true, then this leads to other questions. 

Quantum Entanglement comes from the idea that all particles like elecrons are entangled and directly affected by the motion and state of the next which therefore allows us to assume that everything is truly interconnected with one another.  But how can the manipulation of one state of a particle affect the state of the another at a short distance or even a long distance. If this can be true, who knows how fast and complicated computers can become.  If this is true, could we possibly talk and communicate ideas across the cosmo's?
