Penzar = Think OUTSIDE the brain/box!
My name is Patrick M. Rael (BS Computer Science), and I'm making detailed technical PLANS to be the FIRST human being to become IMMORTAL by transferring my MIND (not brain) into an ANDROID robot! SERIOUSLY! I call this Project Andros! This is a worthy and FUN challenge! I have the knowledge and creativity to solve this challenge. I estimate I will accomplish this task in a short 5 more years, after having worked already on androids for ~16 years. I like to tackle the MOST DIFFICULT challenges known to humanity, those are the most enjoyable to solve. Solving intractable problems is my specialty. I wrote a book titled Penzar, which is about tackling and solving the worlds most difficult challenges.
During year 2012, Penzar is but only as a temporary promotion, because I was once a student and I know how tight money can be. Penzar is NOT in the public domain, this is a temporary promotion. You can download Penzar.pdf now. I have NOT made the ebook reader versions free, althought they may decide to do that on their own to match this promotion. As I've stated elsewhere you may print my ebook for your own use.
AWAKENING: Imagine waking up and looking out of digital camera eyes and listening with directional stereo microphone ears and thinking: "I DID IT! I'M INSIDE THE ANDROID ROBOT, AND I REMEMBER EVERYTHING! WOW! I REALLY CAN SOLVE ANYTHING! I am R. Patrick Rael, the first android robot to have the sentient mind of a human being! Easy now, don't let it go to your head. What's the situation: I am conscious of myself, I can see and hear. I have a shiny metallic and carbon fiber body. My hand moves when I want. I can stand and balance. I walk across the room and look in the mirror; YES, I am an android. I flip the light switch off and on. I can affect this world. I intentionally walk, yet I am not aware of the exact sequence of dozens of mechanical motors and muscles that achieve the smooth gait. I feel ... ASTONISHMENT ... that I'm here behind these eye cams. Now, first things first: Survival. I better make a backup of my mind and store it offsite. There, done, and fast. Then I'll recharge my batteries for breakfast with brownout-brownies and ampere etouffe French style. There are technicians nearby checking on my status. Hey Joe, what's up dude! Check out my new skin. My skin is not my own!... . Do you remember the Star Trek episode where ... [LOL]. "

Penzar is like time-travel to the future when humans achieve immortality, evolve beyond our bio-shells, learn to live in global peace, travel to the stars in advanced space ships with gravity-drive, join the community of interstellar life forms, and solve the most difficult question on planet earth! We learn to solve trivial problems like tornadoes and forest-fires and oil-fires with simple solutions. Humanity reaches the 8th level of intelligence on the L8 scale, a new IQ scale which the author created which is suitable to measure the IQ of any life form in the universe, even group life forms like cities, corporations, political parties, and nations.
Ideal for students, researchers, and anyone searching for solutions to extremely intractably hard problems.
"...Abstract dimensions appear and disappear with the variables in an equation, but natural dimension continues to exist.", prael pp204 Penzar, Ch. 16 The hardest question on planet earth. This implies a strong distinction between mathematical equations and reality, and that mathematical system can model reality, but the model is not reality, so try not to get confused! It seems trivial, but you might be surprised to find some physicists insisting the equation flies through space. This statement above should resolve that once and for all!
"Legal laws are the algebras of society.", regarding the 14 laws of human and android symbiotic labor, prael, cafe in Albuquerque. If this statement is true, then legal laws could be analogous to applied mathematical algebras in the social domain.
"It takes time to make time, ...", my proof that time did not start at the big bang, but was progressing prior, prael, cafe in Somerset NJ, Cedar Grove Lane. With this assumption it is impossible for outermost-time to start. It takes a dynamic now to cause time to transition from static to dynamic, but this is self-referencing. Static time cannot use itself to transition to dynamic time, it cannot start itself. The fundamental assumption here is that ANY transition occurs because of outer-time.
"Find the variable properties in a thing or system. Change the variable. ", pp57, Penzar, ch.6, Design of the Android mind. This is my method for the Computational Creativity. Change variables to vary the system, change constants to demonstrate creativity, change assumptions to think outside the box. This is my technique, anyone can learn it now that it is published.
" ...human beings have two brains in them; one is for thought, the other is for feelings. The think-brain is for thought, logic, ... rationalism, ... The feel-brain is for feelings, intuition ... Some are stuck in one brain and wish they could switch to the other. ", pp57 Penzar, Ch.6 Design of the Android Mind, The two brain hypothesis.
" The Mensa test is good for people who think they belong in Mensa, and need a test to prove it to themselves. Those of us who know our intelligence is unbounded don't need silly tests to prove anything, and I prefer solitude over group membership. If a test is necessary, the answer is Penzar.", -Pat, deep thought at the cafe on Cedar Grove Lane, Somerset NJ.
" When it comes to computer games, I like first-person shooters, solo and team like Battlefield2, Commander-mode games like Homeworld2, and I was there when Battlezone was popular, one of the early 3-D wireframe 1st-tank-shooter arcade games: proof, to defeat the supertanks, ram it head-on while approaching it in an arc-curve turn, then backup and it SHOOTS OVER YOUR SHOULDER EVERY TIME. While it reloads, turn and blast it! No shi* sherlock! One of my old favorite first-person games was Tribes. However, I have to admit that the only thing I did there was the Pads training course, using the jet-pack to fly from one pad to another climbing higher, then jump down each pad until I return to the start. That's all. I'd play this over and over, my goal was to run the course in the theoretically shortest time possible. This was way too much fun! But the most challenging game I have ever encountered is: Win-dooze: IMHO it's the most challenging first-person-shooter game there is in existence. It's a reality-game, where you are the user trying to get work done in this strangely popular Operating System, and Win-dooze is the arch-enemy interrupting you with blue-screens, trivial popup messages which you must click to take down (witness the BOB character [get some virtual wire cutters and cut him in 2]), a seemingly endless series of questions to get approval to run something, and if you want to interoperate with Unix standards, environments, and programs like VNC, VMware and VirtualBox, you could be in the sites of the Ctrl-Alt-Del being. That is a villain from the Alt-ernate universe bent on Control-ling your session and trying to trick you to Del-ete and/or reboot your connections to other running operating systems. Win-dooze tells you it needs to reboot so frequently that I think that is it's flag which it tries to capture: It's flag/goal is to turn win-dooze and any other OS off, and the accidental reboot is a clever trick to rack up the points. When do you want to reboot today? I say let win-dooze capture the flag! Let it doze. Leave it off, and celebrate with a glass of Wine if you like that! You don't like viruses? I say win-dooze IS the super-virus-organism-game! Instead, I recommend you run a flavor of Unix or other OS that gets the he** out of your way so you can do work! Example: I like to run Linux with the Gnome UI with 36 separate workspaces, each workspace is like a different desktop. I also like running FreeBSD. UTSL :-) ", -Pat, reflections on Operating Systems and applications which help and hinder me. This is a subjective, forward-looking opinion, your mileage may vary.
"When I evolve into an android, this will be my appearance! Hey, what happened to my ears!" LOL -Pat
A BOLD declaration from the Penzar author: Law #12
Chapter 8 - Utopia Androidia
The 14 laws of human and android symbiotic labor...
Law 12: Human Right of Way - No human being will be displaced by an Android Labor Proxy, nor will a competent human be denied a job already occupied by an android. If a human is competent for a job and wants the job an android is performing, the human cannot be denied that job for any reason ...
"This is the organic me circa 2009 before I transform into an android! Look, I still have ears!" LOL. See pic on left. -Pat
I have published a non-fiction ebook titled: Penzar - Journal of
advanced ideas. The ideas in this book are neither ordinary nor
mediocre, they are advanced, so reader beware, you may have to think outside the box to keep up. In this ebook I tackle and solve
several of the hardest challenges known to humankind.
Penzar includes Robot Max and Utopia Androidia - the 14 laws of human-android symbiotic labor.
Utopia Androidia redefines human labor such that your robot never retires, and as a side effect makes Social Security, pensions and all other retirement savings plans redundant and unnecessary.
Also in Penzar is a new L8 IQ scale which makes it now trivial to define the conditions for World Peace. A second application of the L8 IQ scale is Hello world!, a way to increase tolerance while having fun. Another use of the L8 IQ scale is to rate the L8 IQ of politicians and political parties to understand why most of them accomplish so little and are usually focused on their own popularity: they may be L3 on the L8 scale. If you elect an L3 politician, you'll get L3 behavior! No wonder, it's all so clear now!
Wait, there's more! I created a new theory of physics which turns modern physics on its head and puts dimension at the base and particles are built from dimension. In the process of solving physics I identified what I claim is the most difficult question on planet Earth. Then I apply this far, far out physics to the design of the gravity attraction engine for space travel. Try to keep up if you can! There is more: tornado disruption, fire-fighting oil-well-, forest-, and skyscraper-fires, gender-neutral 3rd person pronouns definition and a 64-page story using those pronouns, ... . WOW, so many advanced ideas in one book, no wonder it is called Penzar - Journal of advanced ideas. Oh Duh! -Pat
Robot Max was featured in the Popular Science magazine issue of July 2002, which can be found here and also here reproduced exactly.
Tom Atwood, the editor in chief at Robot Magazine, blogged this about the Penzar chapter on Utopia Androidia, the 14 laws of human and android symbiotic labor: "... Reading some of these laws brought me back to Asimovs three laws of robotics, but Rael's are entirely independent and are part of a "calculus".... Look for a future article on Penzar in Robot Magazine, currently unknown which issue it will be, will update here when it's known.
Julia Dendinger, a reporter for the Valencia County news bulletin, wrote, "No one could ever accuse Patrick M. Rael of having an underdeveloped mind. For most of his adult life, Rael has spent his free time analyzing some of the most difficult problems known to man. ..."
Penzar is available now for Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple iPad, Sony ebook readers, Google, and also epub, pdf, pdf, and text format from Diesel-ebooks.com and Smashwords.com. Follow this link to Penzar above for a full table of contents and free excerpts from the book.
Jan 31, 2012 - I wrote a BIO-like "Who is Patrick M Rael? What does he want?" on my main web site howtoAndroid.com. I think it has just the right futurist flavor to establish me as a Futurist Extraordinaire! And if that doesn't do it then I also published version 4 of ProjectAndros.pdf, see the link above. This has a very lot of detail for Project Andros, but this document will be evolving a lot during implementation of the project. Jan 29, 2012 - I made Penzar freely available to for this whole year 2012. At the top of howtoandroid.com/Penzar is a notice to this effect and a link to download the pdf version Penzar.pdf. As the notice states, this is a temporary promotion and Penzar is NOT in the public domain. Jan 3, 2012 - I published on howtoAndroid.com an analysis for World Peace in 2012, using 3 Chapters from Penzar. The three chapters are the definition of a life form, the L8-IQ-Scale, and the Three Conjectures of World Peace. Dec 17, 2011 - Patrick M. Rael announces his intention and timeline to transfer his mind into an android robot to achieve immortality, which is a means to solve his larger challenge to learn everything. The transfer will be of his mind, not his physical brain. ETA is a short 5 years to complete this project. This builds on 16 years of effort already put into robotics and analysis of the human mind. There will be four phases to this project. The first phase is to implement the M1 Architecture, which is his own design, and will result in a conscious and sentient life form. Another phase is the transfer of the memory. Another phase will be the implementation of the Emotional brain, as per his own design where the logical and emotional parts of the mind can be separated. The final phase is open-ended as per completion time and is effectively letting the R. Patrick learn to imitate the Mr. Patrick bio-hominid. During this phase the android me will have conversations with the biological me and will imprint it's personality from me based on these discussions. Eventually, over several decades, the biological me will expire and the android me will not. Some of this is discussed in the ebook Penzar. Nov 25, 2011 - Google books is now selling Penzar here. They have an excellent preview here, which is a different preview than the one at the buy link. Oct 28, 2011 - I returned from a 2-week vacation to Europe. My girlfriend, who lives in Paris, and I visited Athens and Delphi, Greece, also Geneva Switzerland, Paris, and Beaune France (wine country). In Athens we visited the Parthenon on top of the Acropolis, Plato's Academy (modernized), took in the culture and food of Greece! It is EXCELLENT! In Geneva Switzerland, we visited CERN, the particle physics accelerator. This was also EXCELLENT. We were allowed to eat in the lunch room where the physicists had lunch, not everyone is given that courtesy. In the hallway to the lunch room are many famous physicists' offices. CERN is aware of the big problems in physics: dark energy, gravity, but I didn't see any evidence of attempts to answer the question: What is natural dimension made of? That is where I think the future of physics is heading. I'm certain I saw a famous physicist in the lunch room. In Beaune France, Bourgogne region, we were in wine country. We toured the Patriarche wine cellar which currently houses 3 million (YES, MILLION) bottles. Beaune may not be on all tourist radars, but don't let that fool you, you can get right up to the vineyards, in the cellar, and make sure you eat at the restaurant Le Caveau des Arches (Cave of Arches, an old wine cellar now a restaurant), you won't be disappointed. The Bourgogne (aka Burgundy) region is also known for excellent Escargots (snails), which I can attest to! If you are on Facebook, check out my top ten pics album of this vacation. In facebook I am patrick.rael.7, the picture album is European_Vacation_France_Greece_Switzerland_Oct_2011. Oct 6, 2011 - Robot Magazine (botmag.com) has written an article will-robots-replace-human-workers-360 on their website about my ebook Penzar chapter on Utopia Androidia. Here is what Tom Atwood, the editor in chief at Robot Magazine, says about the chapter on Utopia Androidia, the 14 laws of human and android symbiotic labor: "... Reading some of these laws brought me back to Asimovs three laws of robotics, but Rael's are entirely independent and are part of a "calculus"..." Look for an article in Robot Magazine issue sometime soon. Robot magazine can be found at Barnes and Noble and other major book and magazine stores. If you're into robotics, this is an excellent magazine to get for a subscription, and with Christmas around the corner, a gift subscription is a good idea. Sept 8, 2011 - I added another excerpt form the chapter of tornadoes, specifically the section about stopping forest-fires and brush-fires. That section is about scaling up a fleet of 50-100 amphibious water-dropping planes such that there is almost a continuous dropping of water on the fire. Aug 16, 2011 - I added yet more excerpts from the book for tornadoes, fires, and immortality (Chapters 1, 2, and 11 respectively) and with links from the Table of Contents. Also there are more diagrams linked in which helps to understand the tornado disruptor artificial ground design, and two diagrams for the fire-fighting chapter. A picture is worth 1000 words. Aug 15, 2011 - I added more free excerpts from Penzar. New excerpts include parts from Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11 and 13. Chapters 3 and 4 are my own L8 IQ scale. This scale is applied to World Peace in chapter 5, and also humans will likely want android robots to have L8 intelligence so that the robots will be tolerant of humans and not go to war with us. Chapters 6, 7, 8 and 9 are about android robot mind design, including the M1 Architecture, and also Pat's law of robotics. Chapters 8 and 9 are Utopia Androidia and Dystopia Androidia respectively, two good and bad implementations of android robots in human society. Chapter 11 is my VYLZ-2 solution for 3rd person gender neutral pronouns, a final end to syntax such as "he/she". Chapter 13 is the exemplar usage of these pronouns in a story of Sam and North Compass. I added hot links from the Table of Contents below into the chapter excerpts. Aug 9, 2011 - I changed the price to $3.99 (was $19.99) for the rest of August and thru September! WOW! That is super affordable. Aug 8, 2011 - Penzar is available at the Apple iTunes bookstore. In the iBooks app just search for Penzar and you will find it there. I have purchashed it and viewed it and it looks great on the iPad. I think the presentation looks better on the iPad than the Kindle and Nook, because the widescreen allows you to see the book opened like a real book with both left and right pages visible at the same time. I haven't found a way to have the iPad read the book to me. You can change font sizes. There is a nifty "sepia" mode where the pages are turned a faded yellow color, like the way pages get after many years/decades. Aug 5, 2011 - I just bought a Barnes & Noble Nook ebook reader, and bought my book Penzar to see that purchasing works ok, and to see how the book looks. It looks great. I only saw 2 minor formatting quirks that are isolated. The Nook I bought has the touch screen, this is so much easier than the Kindle's keyboard. Alas, the kindle will read the book out loud to you, but the Nook will not. Aug 3, 2011 - The Valencia County (New Mexico) News-Bulletin wrote an article about my ebook Penzar and a little info about me, the online version is here. July 11, 2011 - I published Penzar at Smashwords.com which distributes the ebook to Barnes & Noble Nook, Smashwords.com and Diesel-eBooks.com. They also distribute to the iTunes Bookstore for Ipad. June 11, 2011 - The promotion for 10 free kindles is over, we drew names today from the jars where people put their name and phone number. 10 lucky winners got kindles with Penzar pre-loaded and a little spare change left on the gift card. May 8, 2011 - I published an ebook named Penzar for Amazon Kindle. It includes numerous topics on android robots, R.Max, tornadoes, fire-fighting, a new IQ test, application of that IQ test, a new physics from the ground up, and advanced space ship engine designs.
I think this ebook is unique because it has solutions to several extremely challenging problems such as: - Human/Android-robot symbiotic labor and the 14 legal laws to guarantee it: Utopia Androidia. - How to disrupt a tornado. (very applicable now, and this entire first chapter is available FREE as a sample at Smashwords.com and Amazon). - Firefighting techniques for oil well, forest, and skyscraper fires. - A new intelligence scale: The L8 scale of intelligence. Find out what your IQ is on the L8 scale, you might be pleasantly surprised. - Immortality via android robots. This is my approach to live forever (seriously, not joking). - Gender-neutral 3rd-person pronouns (VYLZ-2), and an example story using them. - Where is the missing 95% of the universe? Solved! Right under our noses. - A new physics that is simpler and addresses dimension directly. - What does a gravity engine look like, and where to install it in a spaceship? - Solution to what an electromagnetic wave is. It's a torsion wave in the natural continuous dimension (aka 'rotor wave') itself. See the Physics chapter, 'The hypothesis of natural continuous dimension object', an axiomatic, rigorous system with ALL assumptions declared up front, and NO math! This axiomatic system is a Theory of Everthing (TOE). - more ...Here is the Table of contents.

Chapter 1. Tornadoes... [significant dialog discussion not included]
How to prevent a tornado from reaching the ground.To disrupt the funnel, tether a balloon on a string tied to a rod and let it float in the path of the funnel. The diameter of the balloon must be larger than the diameter of the funnel significantly. Observe that the funnel reaches down to the balloon, but does not exist below the balloon. The balloon in the funnel forces the air to circulate in a wider pattern, and therefore at a slower velocity, effectively breaking the tight circular funnel. The balloon has effectively become the new ground and is above ground. The balloon does not stop the vortex, it merely prevents it from reaching the ground. Rubber balloons may not scale up in durability to real tornado scales because of damage, so experiment with alternatives, but it should be noted that a tornado that does not reach ground level will not pick up dirt and debris. A tornado which has already reached the ground already has debris in the air to puncture the balloon. Therefore, the initial balloon air bags will likely be quickly destroyed. This is to be expected, and therefore a robust solution needs a large supply of instantly replaceable balloons. The material the balloon is made of is not specified here.
Drawing 3: Tornado reaches air bag but not below it ...
Illustration 1: Tornado vortex simulator without balloon, note vortex in blurry streamers. See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opNK-5dtZCs
Illustration 2: Tornado disruptor balloon, vortex not on ground, streamers static. ... Research Direction 3: Create an artificial ground. Create an artificial ground surface such that below the false surface the air cannot join the tornado. 1. False ground - It has been observed that the tornado never penetrates the ground with downward force. A false ground surface could be created and raised high enough in the air to prevent the funnel from reaching buildings and people and other human structures. A false ground could possibly be constructed of numerous huge air bags over a large area which create a false ground.
Drawing 4: An area of very big air bags can create a false ground level above house.
Chapter 2. Fires... [significant dialog discussion not included]
Stopping forest-fires and brush-fires.Analysis - The application of water to plasma is an effective fire-fighting method, and has no pollutant side-effects. Forest fires are usually remote except for airplanes. If 1 water-dropping plane is partly successful in extinguishing a fire, then use the principle of scale and try N planes in a fleet where N=10, 50, or 100. This seems so obvious that the likely reason it hasn't been done is the social domain. Therefore the solutions below focus on the social impediments to this. Problem 1: Flying a fleet of 10+ water-dropping planes requires skill and teamwork. Solution 1: The natural domain for experience in fleets of airplanes which drop water or things on targets is the military. Therefore, military pilots are natural choices for water-dropping pilots. Mission experience in team operations is required so that the planes don't crash into each other. Problem 2: The cost of a fleet of water-dropping planes is likely more than any single state/region can afford. Solution 2: It may be more cost-effective to distribute the cost of a fleet of fire-fighting planes across an entire nation/country, with the guarantee that such a fleet will be used nationally within the geographic boundaries of said nation. Costs may be recovered by fighting fires (for a fee) in external countries/continents during times when the fleet is unneeded at home. Problem 3: Some areas on fire are remote. Flying a long distance, dropping water, then flying all the way back to refill with water is inefficient if there's a body of water near the fire. Solution 3: A plane with the ability to perform an amphibious refilling of water while moving in the water at speed is desired. Certain amphibious planes already have this capability by design to refill while moving at speed on the water. The sooner a plane can refill, the fewer needed. The longer it takes to refill, the more planes are needed to minimize the “refill-time” when no water is being dropped on the fire. Problem 4: Too many planes too close together could create a hazard with backwash of air turbulence. Solution 4: Military experience solves this. Known techniques for flying in group formations can be reused instead of re-discovered by trial and error and collision.
Stopping oil well fires.Analysis - The observation could be made that one factor which allows the oil well fire to persist is that there is a constant inflow of oxygen which is a necessary but not sufficient component for the fire. One class of solutions is to cut off this supply of oxygen or make the supply finite and small so that it is used up. Following are several ways to do that. Solution 1. Create a sealed volumetric barrier around the fire which prevents the oxygen outside the barrier from entering inside of the barrier. This will make the amount of oxygen available for the fire finitely small. Once the barrier is in place, the fire will slowly consume the oxygen and it will soon run out. However, the tank is in danger of melting if too much time passes. The oxygen can be displaced faster with neutral atmospheric gases (e.g., CO2) or liquids which can be pumped into the container. This will displace and force out the oxygen through escape vents, eliminating the amount of oxygen for the fire. The CO2 can be in cans which burst when their temperature gets too high, releasing fire-extinguishing CO2.
A variant of this technique is to use an open-top cylinder barrier wall surrounding the fire. The height of the wall has to be N times higher than the flame. Non-flammable gases or liquids can be pumped or placed inside the wall displacing the oxygen.
Drawing 5: Containment barrier is being placed over the fire.
Drawing 6: Container with CO2 to burst and smother fire.

The two categories of intelligent life forms.1. Individual. 2. Group.
Intelligent individual properties.1. It has measurable intelligence. 2. It can't split into 2 or more measurably intelligent life forms. 3. It can aggregate into a group life form with measurable intelligence. In essence, the individual cannot split up into intelligent pieces.
Intelligent group life form properties.1. It has measurable intelligence. 2. It is a composition of 2 or more measurably intelligent life forms. 3. It can split into 2 or more measurably intelligent life forms. In essence, the group can split up into intelligent forms which may be either individual or group or mixed.
Examples of intelligent group life forms.1. City 2. State 3. Province 4. Political party 5. Corporation 6. Sports team 7. Organization 8. Nation/Country 9. United Nations 10. Earth/Gaia
Chapter 4. On a measure of intelligence of life forms... [significant dialog discussion not included] Definition: Think - To intentionally direct the focus of ones mind to connect ideas together and create new ideas from the old.
Meta Rules.1. Meta rule 1 - These rules and axioms are intended to be a broad, universal generalization covering all life forms in the universe. 2. Meta rule 2 - Measurer and measuree of intelligence must be at the same or near-same speed of thought. 3. Meta rule 3 - A life form candidate must satisfy the prerequisites before being able to be measured for intelligence level. 4. Meta rule 4 - It is possible that some life forms can start life at level N skipping levels N-1 (such as artificial life forms). 5. Meta rule 5 - A life forms intelligence level can increase and decrease over time, so its measure has a time-of-measure value. 6. Meta rule 6 - A life form must be able to sustain the level N behavior continuously to be qualified at level N. 7. Meta rule 7 - A life form must not measure its own intelligence. 8. Meta rule 8 - Only life forms who understand the concept of objectivity and apply it may measure intelligence.
Prerequisites.Prerequisite 1 - Able to react to stimuli. Prerequisite 2 - Able to remember stimuli. Prerequisite 3 - Able to think. Prerequisite 4 - Able to remember thought. Prerequisite 5 - Able to act at liberty. Definition: hunger is depleted energy.
The levels of intelligence of a life form - the L8 scale.The L8 scale is structured in the following way. Each odd numbered level is considered to be a limiting case which can be overcome to reach the next level which is even numbered. Level 1 intelligence - Primary focus is hunger prevention, also known as energy replenishment. Level 2 intelligence - Perpetual hunger and/or energy depletion is solved. This frees up time to contemplate non-food and non-energy concepts. Level 3 intelligence - All awareness in the life form is in relation to self. This is a self-centered existence with none or nominal concern for others. Level 4 intelligence - The life form is capable of being selfless when appropriate, selfish when appropriate. Level 5 intelligence - The life form's knowledge is based on belief, perception and hearsay. Level 6 intelligence - The life form's knowledge is based on proof, reality and facts. Level 7 intelligence - The life form is intolerant of others, fearful of differences. Level 8 intelligence - The life form is tolerant of others, accepts differences.
Chapter 5. World Peace... [significant dialog discussion not included]
The first conjecture of peace: necessary.A necessary but not sufficient condition for the entire species to be at peace is when all the leaders of society are all at level-6 intelligence. Level 6 intelligence makes peace possible, but without guarantee.
The second conjecture of peace: sufficient.A necessary and sufficient condition for the species to be at peace is when all the leaders of society are at level-8 intelligence. When this condition is met, peace is inevitable.
The third conjecture of peace: long lasting.Sustained peace is impossible if any of the leaders of societal groups cannot be sustained at level 8. When the intelligence level drops from level 8, peace ends thereafter.
Chapter 6. Design of the android mind.... [significant dialog discussion not included]
M1 Architecture.The M1-Architecture of an android robots mind is designed to enable the artificial mind to be equal with the human mind. It has ten major components. Several of these components are detailed extensively below. Implementation is left undefined, therefore any technique is fair game provided in the end the component is realized. Neural networks, objects, functions, drivers, etc are all possible. However, it is not enough to encode the information about the ten components, it must work in demonstration. The android robot must demonstrate the capabilities of its mind in the real world. Stated another way, it is not enough for a robot to build an encyclopedia of knowledge about survival methods and then allow itself to be shut off. The mind must demonstrate its ability to survive. 1. Spatial-Extents - The bounds of self in space. aka I in the physical sense. 2. Species-Recognition - Others like me. This is the Social Context. Remote minds. 3. Survival - Food and energy replenishment, fear of dismemberment. 4. Temporal Extents - The awareness of the passage of time, the speed of thought. 5. Analogy Processor - The system to understand and create analogies. 6. Mind Casts - The top 10 observed mind patterns and some of the characteristics frequently associated with them. 1.

The two-brain hypothesis.Much of human behavior can be explained by the two-brain hypothesis which is this: human beings have two brains in them; one is for thought, the other is for feeling. The think-brain is for thought, logic, cause and effect, reason, rationalism, etc. The feel-brain is for feelings, intuition, gut-feeling, knee-jerk-reactions, emotions, subconscious, non-thought, etc. ...
Vision and perception.Does a person mentally react to the real world or to their perception of the real world? A person may be next to a door unaware of the danger of the door opening and hitting them. The danger is real, but the person is unaware of it. It can easily be argued that it's impossible to have awareness of every potential danger, especially the hidden dangers that are not yet visible. This would seem to be strong evidence that people react to their perception of the world, not the real world. The door opens and hits the unaware person. The person's perceptual world re-adjusts to the reality of the collision. Now the person is aware of the danger of the door after the fact. Pain focuses the mind to awareness of danger as a method of self-preservation. ...
Vision and dreamingHow is it that in a dream there is a capacity for dream vision, yet the eyes are closed? If the eyes can be closed and there can be a 3-D perception of a world, then that suggests the human vision system is composed of at least two levels: 1. The raw visual stream from the eyes is secondary. 2. The 3-D model of the world is primary perception. This is where the real 3-D world is built up. In this architecture the raw visual stream from the eyes is secondary to the primary 3-D model known as perception. In this design the raw stream is only suggestive input to the model. The 3-D world that the human perceives is in the 3-D model built up to match the raw visual stream entering from the eye. This matching-up is not perfect: many people would disagree on what they are seeing and perceiving. ...
Other aspects of the vision system.In the M1 model of perception, significant performance gains can be realized by "assumption": once the local environment is modeled in the mind, no further computation is necessary to re-model it. Build up the model once and then assume it. This principle can be generalized to other objects. In essence, once I know that is a chair, I do not need to keep analyzing it to make sure it stays a chair. In the M1 vision system, 3D depth of nearby objects can be identified entirely by two eye cameras. Triangulation can be performed to identify distance to object. Focus can also be used to aid in depth calculation. No other sensors are necessary. ...
The spectrum of questions about robot emotions.Some important questions regarding android robots with emotions are: 1. Can android robots have emotions? Phrased another way, do the laws of physics preclude robot androids from having emotion? This "can" is not a "should". 2. If androids can have emotions, should they be allowed to have emotions? Phrased another way: If the laws of physics allow robot androids to have emotions, should they be granted emotions? 3. If androids can have emotions, should they be given a proper subset, the same amount, or more emotions than humans have? If emotions can be dangerous, should robots be allowed to have only the safe emotions, like joy and happiness? Is it possible for a robot to have joy, yet not have anger? Can a creature have one but not the other? Is joy a safe emotion? Is anger an unsafe emotion? Is the concern of safety for the robot and or the society of which the robot is a part? 4. Should robots be explicitly given emotions, or should they be given the hardware and programming for emotion to develop by itself. 5. Are robot emotions a kind of thing that will happen on its own no matter how much humans may try to prevent them? This question is directed at the individual robot: will a robot develop emotions on its own? 6. Can humans be prevented from programming robots to have emotions, regardless of efforts to prevent that? Phrased another way, are robots with emotions an inescapable outcome? Will people eventually program robots to have emotions or program them with the ability to develop emotions? Is it inescapable that people will eventually do this, even if artificial and/or legal constraints are in place to prevent that?

Chapter 8. Utopia Androidia... [significant dialog discussion not included]
A Solution: The Android Labor Proxy hypothesis.Prediction 1: Excessive human labor displacement will happen if android labor implementation is controlled by market forces only. There will be mass replacements of humans with android labor. Initially the androids will excel at easy tasks, then progress to be able to displace humans at more complex tasks. As we see from current non-android robot factories, competitive pressures drove many companies to roboticize significant parts of their factory floors. Factory robots now perform some of the jobs humans used to do. But there is no widespread system to create symbiotic pairs of humans and these factory robots to benefit the displaced human workers. Hypothesis 1: The displacement of human workers in a market-driven android labor economy can be avoided many ways. One way is if a symbiotic society is made of human and android robot. Let the non-sentient android robot perform the mundane, tedious, monotonous, dull, boring work. Leave the creative work for the human being to make tasks for the robot. This is a very rough approximation that applies in different amounts to different jobs. Hypothesis 2: A system of societal laws will be necessary and sufficient to organize a highly ordered labor system where humaniform robots can perform a substantial role as labor-proxy for human beings.
The 14 laws of human and android symbiotic labor.Definition: labor-proxy - noun; a 1-to-1 pairing of a human being with an android labor unit. The robotic android worker half of a symbiotic pair. acronym - LPR, (Labor PRoxy), pronounced helper. Law 1: Work Week - All human participants in the Robotic Labor Proxy program have to work at least 8 hours per week, and have weekends off, no excuses. Additionally people have vacations, holidays, etc, . . . . Law 2: Participation - A human being may not Opt-Out of this program, but may simply decline to participate in the funding by the Labor Proxy. The Labor Proxy is bound to the human; nothing breaks the bond except final human death. The robot saves the salary if the human declines funding. There is no carry-over of funds. Any excess funds at the time of the humans death go into a fund pool for all android labor proxies. Law 3: Right to Proxy - It is the right of all human beings to have a Robot Labor Proxy from the moment of birth until final death. Law 4: Proxy Pays Taxes - The Android Proxy pays taxes equivalent to humans. Law 5: Proxy Employed - The Android Proxy is always employed due to excellent work patterns of 23 hours/day, 365.25 days/year. Law 6: Proxy Equal Salary - The Android Proxy has a salary equal to humans for the work performed. Law 7: Non-Slavery Clause - Only non-sentient androids are allowed to be Labor Proxies. Sentient androids cannot be slaves by law. Law 8: Golden Education - Recognizing the importance of education, all expenses of a human beings education plus stipend will be paid by the LPR including the other costs that usually prevent one from continuing education, such as mortgage payments. Law 9: Dispersal - The payments to the human are lifelong, not all at once. The funds have to last the humans lifetime. Law 10: Control of Wages - Android Labor Proxies are in control of their wages. After all, they did the work. There is room for variability here: Plan A has the entire proxy salary going to the human half. Plan B has the proxy only paying for health and education of the human half. Law 11: Mechanical Immunity - Android Labor Proxies are immune from legal challenges from any entity who might otherwise sue for financial gain and ownership. Only sentient life forms can be sued, and a sentient robot cannot be a labor proxy by a prior law, therefore the LPR cannot be sued. Law 12: Human Right of Way - No human being will be displaced by an Android Labor Proxy, nor will a competent human be denied a job already occupied by an android. If a human is competent for a job and wants the job an android is performing, the human cannot be denied that job for any reason about the position already being filled. Therefore every job an android robot does must be instantly capable of supporting a human being at that tasks, including the obvious necessities such as chair, desk, etc, where appropriate. Law 13: Proxy Equality - The Global Equalization mechanism makes all Virtual Robot Labor proxies identical, even though the physical androids may vary. This is necessary to eliminate tampering with androids and favoritism. A virtualization system is such that humans are actually paired with a virtual proxy, and the virtual proxy can be linked to varying physical robots at different times, but only one at a time. In this way a human isn't associated with any specific physical robot, and in fact your physical robot association can change daily. Law 14: No Proxy Shortage - There is never a shortage of Android Labor Proxy, nor an oversupply. Excess Labor Proxies are simply shut off until needed. ...

How to solve immortality, first draft.1. Create a sentient android robot. 2. Teach it to mimic your own personality and life exactly down do the finest detail. 3. The android will thus have your goals, react the way you do. 4. The robot is the robot, not you. But the behavior will be exact enough to pass for you in any test. 5. In mental tests, the robot becomes indistinguishable from you, including your goals and character. 6. Your human corporeal body will die eventually, but your android robot can live forever. It will live on just as you did, except its body will not die. 7. A certain kind of immortality is achieved. This will be the author's approach.

Chapter 13. The adventures of Sam and North Compass.
Part 1. By the pool, or initial blank slate.Somebody is in a dream of opposites. A switch is toggled and what was white is black. What was up is down, and down is now up. What was in is now out, and out is in. What was front is now back, and back front. Hot is cold, cold is hot. Big is small, small is big. Strange is normal, normal is now unusual. In this dream, this reversed-polarity world would be quite strange and not a little frightening, but with polarity flipped this is just another normal day. Then the world changes from reversed polarity to a single constant color: white. In either a normal or reversed polarity world, that would be unusual, but the rules had changed. In a constant world, white is just white. It's neither normal nor strange, it is just a dream. The scene opens to a uniform white glow in all directions, like a blank white page. Nothing is discernible except for some sounds. Voice1: "Hello. Is anyone there? . . . Oh well, I guess it's me, myself, and I again." Voice2: "Did somebody say something?" Voice1: "Yes, I'm here. Eh, I'm here, wherever here is, that is. I can't really see anything." Voice2: "Yes, I know what you mean. Everything looks the same, I can't distinguish anything." Voice1: "I don't recognize anything. I can't even see myself." Voice2: "Yes, it looks the same over here." Voice1: "Well, wherever this is, we are here together!" Voice2: "Where ever this place is, I still feel lost." Voice1: "Do you have a name?" Voice2: "I've never thought about that. I suppose I should. I've been here as long as I can remember, but I don't have a name. Interesting." Voice1: "Me too. For as long as I've been here, one would think I'd have thought of my name before now." Voice2: "Well, better late than never. I suppose I'll be a chameleon. I'll be a chameleon and make myself pure white." Voice1: "Huh? What are the rules here? You just said, 'I suppose I'll be a chameleon.' You mean we get to decide what we want to be? What about what we already are?" Voice2: "We are already lost, that's what we already are." Voice1: "Oh yeah. I see. Well, did deciding to be a chameleon make you a chameleon?" Voice2: "I can't really tell. I can't see anything." Voice1: "You mean it's dark where you're at?" Voice2: "No, it's not dark. One of my eyes sees white. The other eye sees nothing." Voice1: "Wait a minute. The absence of light implies darkness. If there's no light, then it's dark. Right?" Voice2: "Logically, that sounds correct. Yet I can tell you with complete certainty that what I'm sensing in one eye is the absence of sight. The absence of sight is different from the absence of light." Voice1: "What a strange thing to say." Through the whiteness, a tiny pinpoint clearing appears for a second, then is gone. Voice1: "I think I see your point. Figuratively, that is. If we have to choose what we are, then I think I'll be a compass. That way I'll always have a sense of direction. My name will be North. North Compass! In this place the laws of physics are very curious. These laws are different from the physics where I come from. Where I come from, things are what they are, not what we want them to be. But I can play well with others. I'll be the reed that bends in the wind." Just then, the fog lifts and we find a white chameleon clinging to a branch on a tree next to a pool of water. Under the chameleon on the ground is a meerkat. Not a "mere cat", but a meerkat. And certainly not a mere meerkat, for this meerkat is rather unusual. Ze is very oddly balancing on zer head at the edge of a pool, and is staring into the pool. Ze's holding a glass of water with a straw in it, but the glass is right-side up. Yet the meerkat is upside down, so from zer perspective the glass is being held upside down. And fortunately so, because the glass is half full of water. But, and this may be important where the quirky meerkat is concerned, the glass is also half empty (of water that is). The glass is also half full of air. This latter point might seem insignificant, but as we'll see where the meerkat is involved, the insignificant can be critical. The meerkat is mumbling to zelf, "The cup is half full. But it's upside down, and the straw is hanging outside the bottom of the cup. What a strange place this is, or a strange dream. Perhaps it's a normal dream, except that the cup is never upside down. It must be a strange dream. Or maybe it's a strange place in a normal dream. Or maybe it's a strange place in a strange dream. What a strange thought. But if this is a dream, then strange is the norm, so it can't be a strange dream, it must be a normally-strange dream. Yes, it's normal strange, not strange strange." As was said before, this is no mere meerkat. Suddenly, in the reflection in the pool, the meerkat is aware of a ghost-white lizard in a tree nearby. This startles the meerkat and ze loses zer balance and falls into the pool head first. Somewhat unsurprisingly, the meerkat rights zelf upside down in the pool. Zer head is resting on the bottom of the shallow pool and zer feet are sticking out of the water. The meerkat turned the glass of water upside down as ze splashed into the pool. The result is quite unexpected. The glass had been half full of water. It's now amazingly still half full of water. But since the glass is upside down underwater, one half of it is air which has floated upward and is resting on the bottom of the upside-down glass. The rest of the glass has no air so therefore it is sharing the water with the rest of the pool. The straw is being held in place by some air bubbles clinging to its side. Voice1: "B-Look b-at b-me. B-My b-name b-is b-North b-Compass, b-and b-I'm b-pointb-ing b-North. B-Oh, b-that b-didn't b-taste b-good. B-Not b-good b-at b-all. B-Hey, b-what's b-wrong b-with b-this b-place?" North contemplates the air, and then sees the glass of water in front of zim. Sensing that something is not quite right, but not sure exactly what, North takes a drink from the straw that's sticking into the air at the bottom of the glass. North blows through the straw and pushes the water in the straw into the air bubble. After the water is blown out, North sucks on the straw and tastes the air. This air tastes better than the water from moments ago, so North breathes in the air through the straw. North: "B-Ah, b-much b-better. B-I b-think b-I'll b-breath b-some b-more b-of b-this b-air." North takes another breath, and another, and then all the air in the glass is gone. Where moments ago the glass was half full of air, now it's empty of air, but full of water. The chameleon has been watching the meerkat with one eye. The other eye, well, for the moment, the other eye is experiencing a lack of sight; not a lack of light, which would be darkness, but a lack of sight. Seeing that the meerkat has been underwater for a few moments, the chameleon decides to rescue the day. Chameleon: "Hang in there meerkat, I'll save you." The chameleon leaps into the air towards zer drowning friend. Ze extends four limbs outward and begins flapping furiously. The fury was not enough to fly. Fortunately, the chameleon leaped in the right direction towards North and landed on zer upward turned foot which was sticking out of the water. North's foot lurches and Sam the chameleon is flung through the air back to the bank of the pool. You might try to imagine the sensation of being upside down in water thinking you're right side up, and that your compass is pointed just right, or up, which is actually down, when suddenly something grabs your foot from below, or above, it's all relative. That makes you lose balance and fall over, or in this case float up so that you're upside down with your head below air, or above air, or at least you can say your head is in the air, and now your head is getting all soaking dry, but at least your sopping wet. Meanwhile, the chameleon has leaped to dry land and is crawling steadfastly back to the safety of the tree. Meerkat: "Hey, this tastes better. But I'm feeling a little vertigo. Look at me. Wheeeeee! I'm upside down and standing on the sky. Everything looks upside down compared to a minute ago. What a strange place this is, or maybe it's a strange dream, or -- . Hello there, on the tree. I say, Hello there." Chameleon: "Hello. I'm Sam the chameleon." Meerkat: "I'm North Compass the compass. Eh, that is, I'm a compass and my name is North Compass. Hmmmm. Something isn't quite right. You probably can't tell I'm a compass because I'm upside down." Sam rolled both eyes in disbelief, but not both together. While one eye was rolling at the top, the other was at the bottom. That in itself was curious, but not unexpected. What was unexpected was that one eye rolled in one direction, and the other rolled in the opposite direction. North Compass noticed Sam's eyes rolling opposite and this startled zim. For one fleeting moment North felt like leaping head first back into the pool to make things right again. Then the moment passed. Sam: "Say North, are you sure you're a compass?" North: "North! Hmmm, why did you want me to say North. And sure I'm sure. I've been a compass for as long as I've thought of being something. And before that, well, things were a little foggy." Sam: "Maybe you should walk over to the pool and look at your reflection. Oh, and be careful to keep your balance. We wouldn't want you to lose your balancing act just by walking." North: "Well, I suppose I could try to maintain this balancing feat on my feet as I edge over to the pool. Anyways, if I fell over it's not like I probably couldn't balance on my feet again. I'll inch over to the pool, slowly, slowly, keep the balance. There, now I'll lean over and check. Yep, I'm a compass alright, and pointing due North." Sam: "Eh, North, have you ever seen a compass before?" North: "Yes. About 2 seconds ago." Sam: "I mean prior to that." North: "I do have this brief memory that I've seen a compass prior to just now. I remember I was floating above air right before I fell into the air. Yes, it's clearer now, I have seen myself, that is, I've seen a compass before. It was right after I was startled by a creature from below that grabbed my foot and tried to pull me down. Then I lost my balance and fell down into the air and even went under-air for a second. As I looked up I saw my reflection on the surface of the air." Sam: "See here, North. This may come as a shock to you, but you're a meerkat, not a compass. I was in the tree when you fell in the water and was just bobbing upside down with your feet sticking out of the water. I could see bubbles floating up so I figured you were drowning and I leaped towards you to rescue you. All I managed was to land on your foot, and this must have startled you and you flung me to the bank. Right now the way you are standing on the ground is supposed to be your natural right-side up." This was almost too much for North to handle. The vertigo not only returned, but started to spin. Spinning vertigo would be enough to lose one's sense of, well, everything. But North's vertigo then attempted in a very determined fashion to invert itself inside out, upside down, and left-right. Fortunately, the fog returned and all was solid white with no spinning. North: "Sam?" Sam: "What?" North: "I seem to have got my directions all mixed up. I'll work on getting it straightened out. My compass isn't working right. I can't tell up from down, left from right, wet from dry, nor black from white. I hope this clears up soon." Sam: "Good idea." North: "I think I like the fog better for now. It's a lot clearer." Sam: "Go to sleep North. I'll see you in the morning."

The challenge, and the battle is joined on the side of knowledge versus the unknown.The challenge. Characters: One - one half of a conversation, aka 1. Two - one half of a conversation, aka 2. Two whistled while walking alone on a path through the woods. Tall trees overhang the path softening the light, but a few spears of sunlight pierce the canopy and light the way. An avian orchestra is rehearsing. The air is moist, evidence of a recent light rain. Two's pace is constant but not a rush. The path winds up a small rise which opens up to a clearing. At the top of a small hill in the clearing is a Greco-Roman white marble parthenesque structure. One is standing in the center of it, adorned in white robe and sandals, and is wearing a green laurel wreath. Two approaches. ... [significant dialog discussion not included]
Modeling rules.These modeling rules are well known to scientists. Because the audience for this book includes non-scientists, it is worthwhile to include these rules for them. Modeling Rule 1: Initial state is no thing, not even dimension, and zero assumptions. [Initial Nothing, not even a blank slate (which would be a blank thing).] Modeling Rule 2: All entities including dimensionality must be formally declared before used. [No Undeclared Assumptions.] Modeling Rule 3: Assumptions may be used, as long as they are declared. [Assumptions.] Modeling Rule 4: The fewer assumptions the better, but no less than necessary, and there is no limit. [Minimize assumptions.] Modeling Rule 5: Definitions are substitutions of a smaller word or words in place of a larger collection of words, making sentences briefer. [Definitions.] Definition 1- Axiom is an assumption. Modeling Rule 6: A hypothesis is a statement which can be either proven or dis-proven. A hypothesis may be used when formally declared. [Hypothesis.] Modeling Rule 7: A conjecture is an unproven opinion which has an expectation of provability, but no proof is given. Conjectures may be used when formally declared. [Conjectures.] Modeling Rule 8: Opinions may be expressed when formally declared, but have no rigorous value. The net rigorous value of a scientific model with opinions is identical to that model without opinions. However, opinions can be useful for communication and to increase understanding. [Opinions.]
The hypothesis of natural continuous dimension object.Abstract: This paper presents a theoretical solution to what natural dimension is made of. Starting from nothing, axioms are used to build the universe starting with dimension as a natural object, not merely a variable in an equation. The base, continuous natural dimensional object is the foundation from which all the
visibleuniverse can be derived. Particles are explored as a phase of the dimension. Additional work on oscillations in the dimension itself is provided to explain the electromagnetic wave, gravity, and other phenomenon. This paper has no mathematical equations and no prerequisites are needed to understand it. Definition 2: Natural dimension is the dimension that is our reality, as opposed to artificial and/or abstract dimensions such as the Cartesian plane for the relation of arbitrary variables. Definition 3: Continuous - A region which is made entirely of one thing, not a collection of many discrete atomized things. The continuity is infinitely small, therefore not constrained by the principle of atomicity. Axiom 1: Natural dimension exists as a continuous object. [Existence.] Definition 4: dium (dee - um) is a short name for continuous natural dimension of any cardinality. This short word of four letters and two syllables replaces three words and ten syllables. There is no other intended or unintended use of this word beyond dimensionality. This word is suitable as the suffix of other words below which define specific cardinalities. Aside from the convenience of spelling, pronunciation and suffixes, this word is unnecessary. The three longer words can be used in its place. The author believes the words manifold, membrane, and fabric have too many assumptions built into them for use here. The author thinks it is appropriate to go back to the word dimension. There is no connection of the word dium to the latin language. The author does not know of any word pronounced the same as dium except for a city in Greece, no connection to this word. eg; our universe of spatial dimensions is made of dium. eg; the abstract x-y plane in mathematics is dimension, not dium. Pronunciation rules are that pronunciation is in parenthesis (), capital vowel is long. Definition 5: zedium is a 0-dimensional continuous point dium. (zed-E-um) Definition 6: unidium is a 1-dimensional continuous linear dium. (U-nid-E-um) Definition 7: bidium is a 2-dimensional continuous surface dium. (bid-E-um) Definition 8: tridium is a 3-dimensional continuous volumetric dium. (trid-E-um) Definition 9: quadium is a 4-dimensional continuous 4-D dium. (kwod-E-um) Definition 10: chronodium is the solid form of time dimension of any cardinality, aka history. (krO-nO-dE-um) Definition 11: chronolium is the dynamic form of time dimension of any cardinality, aka future. (krO-nO-lE-um) Definition 12: dium density - This is the amount of continuous natural dimension per region, not particles per region. Definition 13: Universe is the union of all natural dimension. [Union of all dimension.] Axiom 2: Natural dimension can neither be created nor destroyed: it can only be transformed. [Conservation of natural dimension.] Axiom 3: Natural dimension is fundamental energy by existence, not by relation. [Dimension energy.] Axiom 4: Natural dimension is capable of phase property, and 3 phases: continuous, particulate and constant. [Phases of natural dimension.] Definition 14 - viscoelasticity of dium - A property of any continuous natural dimension where a subset of the dimensions region can deform in an elastic, flowing, and twist without necessarily causing the coordinate system within the dimension to also deform. The resistance to deformation is not caused by particle collisions as in matter fluids because dium is a continuous object. Sub Axiom 4.1. Continuous phase dium has three properties: 4.1.1. Elastic property gives rise to gravity. 4.1.2. Flowing loop property gives rise to magnetism. 4.1.3. Twist property gives rise to charge. Sub Axiom 4.2. Particulate phase is a particle. Sub Axiom 4.3. Constant phase is static dium, aka history. Axiom 5: Natural dimension in the elastic phase has these following waves at a minimum: 1.Rotor wave - A torsion wave oscillation. See books on torsion waves. 2.Dimple wave - An in-/out-ward compression oscillation. Definition 15: A rotor wave is a local twisting (torsion) of continuous natural dimension which then rebounds back in the opposite direction, then back, repeating endlessly without dissipation. A rotor wave can travel in a direction perpendicular to its axis of rotation. It is the dimension itself which is twisting. Definition 16: An electromagnetic wave is a rotor wave. Definition 17: A static rotor wave is a rotor wave which stops oscillating at a moment in the oscillation cycle. The region of space is left with a twist. This twist is called charge. Definition 18: A dimple wave is a rebounding inward/outward compression of dium to higher/lower than surrounding density which then rebounds back, repeating endlessly without dissipation. Definition 19: A static dimple wave is a dimple wave which stops oscillating at some moment in the oscillation cycle. If the oscillation stops at maximum compression then dium density is higher at the center and at a lesser density surrounding. The delta in density is called a warp in space-time, aka gravity. Sub Axiom 5.1: All waves in continuous natural dimension are propagated solely as a property of the continuous dimension, not as particle collisions. (Stated another way, dium waves are unlike atmospheric sound waves, unlike liquid water waves, and unlike solid material waves, all these three sharing the property of particles transferring kinetic energy from one to another or many.) [Natural analog wave.] Theorem 1: Natural dimension continues to exist when observers stop measuring it. [Certainty principle.] Proof: (Indirect method) If natural dimension ceased to exist, that would violate the conservation of natural dimension axiom. Definition 20: Predictive model - a model which can predict things, but not necessarily identify what things are. For example, an equation can describe an electromagnetic wave, but the equation is not the wave; the equation of symbolic characters does not itself propagate through space. The thing that the equation models is what propagates through space, even if we do not know what that thing is. Examples of predictive models are Relativity Theory and Quantum Mechanics. Opinion 1: The above axioms, definitions and theorems are intended to describe our known universe, as opposed to only being a predictive theoretical model. However, until the connection is formally stated it remains ambiguous. Hypothesis: Our 3-dimensional spatial universe is composed of dium conforming to the axioms above. The time dimension is intentionally excluded from this as a work in progress. ...
Chapter 16. The most difficult question on planet EarthOne: "Greetings Two." Two: "Greetings One." One: "So good of you to come so quickly." Two: "I came as soon as I was summoned. Why was I summoned?" One: "We have a challenge." Two: "Is it a worthy challenge?" One: "It is a worthy challenge indeed. We consider this to be the most intractable question on the planet Earth." Two: "That is great! We like these challenges. The more difficult the challenge, the greater the satisfaction when we solve it. What is the most intractable question on the planet Earth?" One: "That question is this: What is continuous natural dimension made of?" ... One: "Now, please describe the understanding of the question." Two: "Okay. Things governed by atomic/particle theory all have the property that they are composed of smaller things. But the dium hypothesis places a lower limit on atomic/particle theory: the dium hypothesis defines a final small limit which is natural, continuous and regionally distributed with the name "N-dimensional". Dium has properties, such as phases. Continuous dium can condense to particulate phase. Particulation is constrained by atomic/particle theory. Atomic/particle theory is no longer the fundamental smallest scale model. ...." ...

Design of the gravity engine, version 2.Starting with the dium hypothesis, it is now easier to understand how to design a gravity drive engine. This kind of engine generates gravity by the annihilation of matter with anti-matter. This is merely a phase change of dium: particle phase into the continuous phase, with gravity as a temporary by-product which is short-lived and quickly disperses. This temporary gravity is detached from particles, otherwise it would be like normal gravity associated with particles and the ship would not move. There are also other energetic by-products: capture those and use for electricity and other things, but these by-products aren't used for gravity attraction. ...
