Theory of Hyperobjects

Authors: Yu. N. Bratkov
Comments: 108 pages + cover page. Russian. Published: MAX Press, Moscow, 2001.

By topological modelling some indications of a global cult of ancient priests were detected. Further studying of the cult gives discovering of some important objects. Among others very nontrivial results in tectogenesis are obtained.

Extention Transformation Used in I Ching

Authors: Florentin Smarandache
Comments: 10 Pages.

In this paper we show how to using the extension transformation in I Ching in order to transforming a hexagram to another one. Each binary hexagram (and similarly the previous trigram) has a degree of Yang and a degree of Yin. As in neutrosophic logic and set, for each hexagram there is corresponding an opposite hexagram , while in between them all other hexagrams are neutralities denoted by ; a neutrality has a degree of and a degree of . A generalization of the trigram (which has three stacked horizontal lines) and hexagram (which has six stacked horizontal lines) to n-gram (which has n stacked horizontal lines) is provided. Instead of stacked horizontal lines one can consider stacked vertical lines - without changing the composition of the trigram/hexagram/n-gram. Afterwards, circular representations of the hexagrams and of the n-grams are given.

One Reality of Universe Within Universe

Authors: Pal Asija
Comments: 38 Pages. Keep up the good work

A Systems View of One Reality of the Universe (FTPRDNBU) within Universe (IEVACXUU) delineating its Size, Structure and Soul and Our Special Status on the Privileged Planet. This paper and concomitant presentation comprise a Systems View of One Reality of the Universe (FTPRDNBU) within Universe (IEVACXUU) delineating its Size, Structure and Soul and Our Special Status on the Privileged Planet. It build upon a previously presented and published paper at an NPA forum by the author with a similar title. As the title implies, it is based on the premise that there is only one reality in-here and out-there notwithstanding multitudes of perceptions thereof. Accordingly problems in theory and practice of sciences cannot be solved without solving the problems in theory and practice of spirituality and vice versa. At the top level it begins with a systems view of the universe which by definition is one (Universe = All that there is) within what existed prior to its creation ex nihilo and sua sponte. An essential aspect of our universe is gravity which is created by combined effect of three motions in 3D Euclidian absolute space in three orthogonal frames of reference which are fed all the way back to earth via Virgo Cluster(s), Milky Way and the Solar System each in three different orthogonal planes. 1) Orbit of the earth around the Sun in the plane of the planets in the first frame of reference (horizontal plane along vertical axis) 2) Solar system around Milky Way Black Hole in the plane of the Milky Way which is perpendicular to the plane of the solar system in the second orthogonal frame of reference (Vertical plane along horizontal axis) 3) Orbit of the Milky Way and local group and perhaps some other galaxies around Black Hole of the Virgo cluster in the third Frame of Reference (Lateral vertical plane along lateral horizontal axis) which is orthogonal to both the previous planes Solar system plane and Milky Way Planes. In further detail it is a potpourri of One Reality NOW (Nuggets of Wisdom). There are no taboo topics or sacred cows. One Reality ignores man made boundaries of knowledge domains or credentials of the originator of a particular perception of reality. Any contradictions are purged from One Reality by employing familiar mathematical techniques such as LCM (Lowest Common Multiple) and HCF (Highest Common Factor) amongst other. The author supports his position by examples from a wide range and variety of sciences and spirituality. The only chance for solving the one reality jigsaw puzzle is by sharing the pieces of the puzzle from all sources of one and only one reality.

Scandinavian SD - The SAFE Way

Authors: Sari Haj Hussein
Comments: 10 Pages. Appeared in the 5th International Conference on Engineering Education in Sustainable Development (EESD 2010), Gothenburg, Sweden

People of various interests talk about Sustainable Development (SD) and in their talks they understand SD very differently. A lexicographer for example may define SD according to Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary as "the use of natural products and energy in a way that does not harm the environment". While a passer-by may happily dub her society as sustainable if it is providing her with her life needs while considering the needs of generations to come over a very long time. To take it to an extreme edge, the philosopher Luc Ferry [1] defines SD by saying: "I know that this term is obligatory, but I find it also absurd, or rather so vague that it says nothing!". In this paper we try to define and measure SD in Scandinavian countries using a novel mathematical approach. We rely on a non-concrete model for this purpose; namely the SAFE model, which is based on concepts derived from fuzzy logic. It is widely believed that the application of fuzzy logic brings powerful reasoning abilities in disciplines where concrete mathematical models do not exist; and SD is one such discipline. In fact, fuzzy logic is an outstanding tool for mimicking human thinking and foresight. Based on the SAFE model, we give a careful assessments of sustainability in each of the Scandinavian countries. We also undergo a trend monitoring combined with a sensitivity analysis in order to stand on the most important sustainability factors in each of these countries.

Chalmers Science School for International and Swedish Students

Authors: Sari Haj Hussein
Comments: 5 Pages. Appeared in the International Conference on Educational and Information Technology (ICEIT 2010), Chongqing, China

This paper will describe the implementation of competitively based and highly structured scientific programs in a framework of a science school at Chalmers University of Technology. We discuss the implementation, advantages and disadvantages of those programs, the requirements students and supervisors should fulfill, whether from the academia or from the industry, and we present the selection method of participants. We also reflect on the results of a survey conducted recently among Chalmers academic staff. We believe that the installation of this science school at Chalmers brings many advantages to students, starting with a better understanding of industry practices and ending with an easier path to recruitment. It further helps employers in efficiently administering the process of hiring students and in discovering technological breakthroughs. Moreover, it enables the university to establish better connections with the industry and later use its feedback to enhance academic courses and the content of those courses. Our method derives from the successful practices of a pioneering science school at the Israeli Weizmann Institute of Science; namely the Kupcinet-Getz Science School for Israeli and International Students. The method further acquires practices from published literature of relevance to our discussion. We aspire Chalmers Science School to be a blueprint for any emerging or evolving science school at any educational institute worldwide.
