Is There Life After Death?

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 11 Pages.

Our sense of individual immortality is a consequence of the self-awareness of the Universe caught knowingly in the act of looking at itself through human eyes. I am how the Universe becomes self-aware and experiences itself. The immortality of the Universe is therefore quite naturally intuited to be my own. The Universe is a conservation domain: all parts of the Universe are immortal or otherwise conserved. Our true immortality is the eternal nature of the Universe itself - including its capacity to continuously evolve and create information, life, and self-knowledge. Human life oscillates between a generalized (genomic) and a specific (individual) expression. The creation of a new human being is remarkably analogous to the creation of a new elementary particle: both processes require a symmetric energy state which recapitulates the original environmental conditions of its specialized domain.

Of Intent, Citation Game, and Scale-Free Networks: a Heuristic Argument

Authors: V. Christianto, Florentin Smarandache
Comments: 11 pages

A heuristic argument was presented in favor of hypothesis that scientific communication corresponds to a process known as scale-free network. As a result, it is argued that scientific referencing through citation follows the same process, therefore it could be expected that this shall also exhibit fractality as observed in various phenomena associated with scale-free networks. This argument appears conceivable because the process of citation involves a decision-making, coined here as 'citation game.' In this regard, it is recommended to conduct citation analysis to measure the fractality of this process. While at present this heuristic argument cannot be considered as conclusive, further research is recommended to verify or refute this hypothesis.

Neutrosophy is ascribed to Dr. Florentin Smarandache, professor of mathematics and sciences, and head of its department at the University of New Mexico - Gallup (USA). The main aim of this book is to provide the reader with the philosophy of neutrosophy and its application to the Arabic-Islamic thought. So the book is divided into two parts; the first belongs to prof. Smarandache, in which he exposes his philosophy of neutrosophy.
