I can certainly understand your frustration, but you don't have a leg to stand on. Dropping names and terms as if they are supposed to mean something in solving the mystery does no service to anyone. It would be nice, for example, if you could show how either synchronicity or seriality has anything even remotely to do with why the Good and Plenties organize into clusters. For example, I could say that "action at a distance" is the answer or "causative formation," or somesuch thing, but that would not really explain it, either, if you see what I mean. I could even say birds of a feather flock together.
Regarding your continuing snide personal attacks, I suspect you have some sort of inferiority complex regarding your level of education, but that's just a guess.
It was you, Mr Kait, who wrote to say that YOU were a rocket scientist and therefore knew more than anyone else. I am not ashamed of my background, nor of my education, which includes a BA in history although I basically finished my premed prerequisites (just needed inorganic chem), as well as a minor in sociology, and some 35 credits in applied music. But since you insinuated that you knew more than anyone else because you were a "rocket scientist", I enjoy watching you desperately searching for any explanation and apparently not even bothering to do even the most basic of research from the clues I left you.
Paul Kammerer defined seriality as " a recurrence of the same or similar things or events in time..." (Wikipedia). Jung was deeply interested in the same and actually kept a diary of events which which had relatively "amazing" coincidences. When Wolfgang Pauli was on the verge of a nervous breakdown and sought help from Jung, they both discovered their mutual interest in these coincidental events. Both wrote about it, as did Paul Kammerer. A simple google search would have turned all all of this. A similar google search on literature written about the terms would have also turned up quite a few articles written about it.
The "coincidental" groupings have a place in Pauli's quantum theory of exclusion, where he actually explains certain groupings on the quantum level for certain subatomic particles. But why the hell should I have to point this out to a "rocket" scientist?
Sorry, but you are confused. I never referred to myself as a "rocket scientist," you did, and each time it's in the same smirky, conceited manner. Although my education is in theoretical propulsion and theoretical physics, I don't think it's necessarily relevant to most audio discussions, though sometimes it is. Furthermore, I have not suggested I knew more than anyone else although, truth be told, I suspect I do know more than you in quite a few areas and, as I said, I can certainly understand your frustration and inferiority complex.. You, on the other hand, seem determined to portray yourself as some sort of Know it All, even in areas you obviously lack the experience or the education. My recommendation -- stay in school.
But I digress. With all your yammering you have failed to show how your "Known Physics" references in any way solve the riddle of the Good and Plenty clustering. In fact, you can't even cite references.
You brought up the subject of my education, not I. You compared my previous vocation to that of yours: a "rocket scientist". As far as you never referring to yourself as a rocket scientist, you either have a very short memory or all the BS you spout is beginning to creep up on you, in that you can't remember the lies you have written.
I told you, very early on, I am not going to give you any answers. You do the research, oh "mighty rocket scientist". You seem to simply want a distilled explanation so that you can harp on any explanation given. The truth may be far more complex. But that theoretical basis, considered by some to be the core of chaos theory, should be right up your alley as a "theoretical" physicist. Since you suspect that you know way more than I do, go and do some reading and research. Again even the most basic Google search will reveal a large number of sources.
You think I am afraid of your "all powerful intellect"? That's quite a laugh. I know many PHD's in various fields from astrophysics to molecular biology. None of them put on airs like you do.
In light of your statement that you know more than I do, I would suspect that is true, as no one can know everything. And you are right: I am constantly reading and trying to better my knowledge. There is a well known saying that they teach at McDonald's, of all places. The saying goes: "When you're green you're growing, when you're ripe you start rotting."
PS: If you suspect you know more than I do on this subject, why pester me for the explanation?
PPS: Ilya Prigogine, the Nobel prize winner in chemistry had some interesting ideas too. I can't write about it because I haven't finished reading his book.
It appears we won't be seeing that explanation I keep pestering you for after all, just more personal attacks.
Maybe one of your PhD buds can enlighten you as to why Good and Plenties cluster, although I doubt it.
You are the theoretical physicist, all mighty seer. If you don't know, how can any one else know?
Well, chances look pretty good your PhD buds don't know. Or you, from what I can gather. LOL
Guess it will remain a mystery. Everyone likes a mystery, right? LOL
YOU don't know.
Let's put it this way, Mr. Smarty Pants, if I did have a theory, and I'm not saying I do, I'd do more than simply throw out a couple of terms, expecting everyone to come to attention and salute.
Let's hear your theor(ies) then. Why should post ours if you hold back on yours?
But you haven't posted any theories. Only a couple of vague, "scientific sounding" terms for which you were unable to provide any references or even definitions. Oh, and you dropped the names of a couple of "Big Science Guys." I guess that was supposed to prove you know your science. LOL
Seems to me if you were truly a theoretical physicist, you would be at least a bit more familiar with the works of those people. Apparently you are not, so therefore it would be impossible for me to give an explanation in the length of most posts on AA. For things like quantum theory or, at least facets of it, the explanations are rather long and involved.
I see no attempt on your part to do further investigation. Zero, nada.... In fact you rather ridiculed my suggestion that you investigate the works of Carl Jung. Wolfgang Pauli's exclusion principle, which is a fundamental part of the overall quantum theory, uses the energy states to explain certain subatomic groupings which have ramifications on a much larger scale. He uses a lot of math to show that. But then why am I having to state what should be obvious to a "theoretical physicist".
The definitions are readily available on Google as I have been saying. You want an explanation, but I haven't even ever eaten any Good and Plenties candy so I can not forward any explanation. Unlike you, who will state opinions of a book based on a second hand review, I will not really speculate unless I have personal experience. You, yourself, have stated no one has even verified your observation. You offer no statistical evidence, no verification of the observation, no clinical trials, so why should the casual Iso reader even bother to speculate?
LOL! and you claim to be a "rocket scientist"?
Hey, you're the one that dropped their names, not me. If I thought that any of the terms you cited or any of the Big science names you dropped were of any relevance to the discussion I would have said so. Alas, you weere just hoping that some sort of established science would come to your rescue and you wouldn;t have to face the prospect of some sort of mysterious, hard to understand explanation, as usual. LOL
simply ignore my posts instead of begging for enlightenment.
PS: Probably reading just the condensed summaries in Wikipedia wasn't enough, enh? It's probably way to much trouble to read the original writings, but that's what we expect from your mentality anyway.
You claimed you never made any comments about my education and YOU blow it in front of the whole asylum. If anything, you are the ultimate hypocrite.
PS For a theoretical physicist, you still can't make any connections. Double LOL!
Well, let's get real here. I am the theoretical physicist of the group and you are, well, some sort of steel worker. Do you think I should keep my education a secret? Do you think you should hide your lack of education in physics? LOL
I seem to know quite a bit more than you do on certain subjects. The groupings you noted do not bother me in any way as I can draw parallels from the writings of the work of the people I mentioned. The explanation, thus, becomes a bit evident, at least to me.
And you, a theoretical physicist! Hypocrite would be a better term. Sheldrake would be turning over in his grave.
Or, a flash, since you claim to harness the fourth dimension with your clock: maybe the candies go into the fourth dimension and rearrange themselves before being transported back to our reality....
I never claimed to know everything. You, on the other hand, apparently wish to be the Know it All of the group. But dropping names and a couple of terms here and there doesn't quite qualify for Know it All status. Alas, everyone has to be good at something; I'm quite confident you know much more than I do about rebars. LOL
The boy is getting jealous that being a theoretical physicist and a rocket scientist doesn't necessarily provide answers.
When you don't want to do the research and exploration on your own and expect to be spoon fed answers, well, then, in my book you are no scientist.
As far as being a theoretical physicist, the names you claim I dropped have a lot to do with the issues of randomness and probability. If you are unfamiliar with even the slightest ideas they have written about, then you are no theoretical physicist. Or, if you are you are basing your theories on events well before the last century and have yet to catch up with modern theories and ideas.
You claimed that I had an inferiority complex. LOL! Most of us can certainly see that in your actions. Even Sheldrake would have had an explanation and you are supposed to be the "expert" on his ideas!
It is utterly ludicrous that you invoke Sheldrake as an explanation for certain of your tweaks and yet you ignore him here.
Your arguments make no sense. Are you suggesting that Sheldrake should be invoked for all mysterious phenomenon? LOL Besides, I don't invoke Sheldrake arbitrarily, only when there is an apparent connection to morphic resonance, such as in the case of the clock and the Belt products such as the foil and the Red X Pen.
Morphic resonance appears to be a subject you're quite ignorant of or afraid of, or both. That's actually quite understandable since morphic resonance doesn't fall under the pat, "well-understood" scientific categories that you continue to think solves all of of life's mysteries.
If you want to call me an expert, that's your call, not mine. I just posted suggestions for you to investigate. Apparently that's too much for you to follow up.
As for Sheldrake's Morphic resonances, I would submit that you are the one that shows a lack of understanding. Ooooohhh, but wait, they don't teach that in college physics do they?
Well, I'd say you're a name dropper and wannabe but drop a few more names and fancy terms and I'll get back to you. LOL
By the way, just for your information, you're behind on points. LOL
Geoff Kait, Geoff Kait, Geoff Kait, Geoff Kait, Geoff Kait, Geoff Kait, Geoff Kait. Is that enough names to drop?
How about morphic resonances, and time shifts with a digital clock. Oh yeah, that all relates to you, doesn't it?
As much as I like seeing my name in print (and even spelled correctly, thank you) I get the sense we are nearing the useful end of this discussion. LOL
no, heres the usefull part of this thread:
