also, let us recall the two-and-a-half-page theorem,
quite elementary, showing the isomorphism
of induction & deduction, and a simple formula
with which to interconvert, in *Mathematics Magazine*
(, thank you.

Minowski's silly slogans about mere "4d phase-space,
easily supplanted by quaternions (or "vector mechanics,
the original"), and b)
Newton's crap "theory of light,
as masslees rocks." I mean,
get over it.

> Curved spacetime is displaced aether.

not even Hubble actually believed in this tripe;
light must needs propogate through the electrons & positrons
around nucleii & antinucleii of "free space,"
whose permeability & permitivity are similar to air's (but,
even closer to "one, or Pascal's plenum,
which he thought to be in his experimental apparatus").

Einstein's terminology of "photons" has always
been needlessly shot through the lens of "massless rocks
o'light" -- phooey -- starting with the big E., hisself,
not to mention Newton's soi-dissant "theory of light."

> Start with Hubbles Law.

why is Trickier Dick Cheney from the Nixon Administration,
not questioned on his role in averting USA jetfighters
from that pentagonal thingie in DC?

why do "truthers" not see the rather large difference
in the type of construction of that,
compared with "the world's tallest pair of buidlings?"

I thought that you promoted the ideal,
that the Arctic was "warming because of dereased albedo,
due to less floating ice" -- even though this is terribly wrongsville.
(there is no where, thereat;
there is no why, thereby.)

just say,
"the angle of total reflection of sunlight at the interface
of air & water, viz Snell's law, thank you!..." I mean,
that is two indices of refraction related trigonometrically
-- just do it!

> The long term trend from albedo is that of cooling. In recent years,
> satellite measurements of albedo show little to no trend.

there is no essential difference between the M-strip and
the K-bottle, and the essential character is that
they both self-intersect in some sort of "singularity" --
it's Grea-a-a-t!

> this (standard) representation of a Klein bottle is totally erroneous.

completely alleviated (or "obviated") by the Alfven cosmology,
conforming to the Dirac proviso of equal amounts of antimatter;
you cannot distinguish them by "antilight!"

> a galaxy is a massive, gravitationally bound system consisting of

the vast majority of mutagens, teratogens etc. is found
in the naturally occuring compounds in plants,
such as shown by the Ames assay,
which uses a standardized salmonella specie.

that is what Bruce said in a talk at UCSantaCruz,
that I stumbled upon, years after he wrote a rather apocalyptic
for *Whole Earth Review*.

as for "Arctic albedo," the whole debate is wrongfully premised,
as I have stated over & over, again,
with "these-here clowns, to utterly no commentarium."
