Giordano Bruno and the main secret of the church: A universe full of Christs

The old archives store many interesting records and wonders that mankind does not discover for just one reason – laziness to delve into piles of papers. So, fragments from the book of W. Churchill have recently been discovered, where he reasonably and with full responsibility discusses extraterrestrial life, exoplanets and other miracles. 

In his writings, the politician relied on the “principle of Copernicus.” This is a very common theory that people are far from the only intelligent creatures in the universe.

Interesting policy studies, or what W. Churchill wrote

Like all scientists, the politician believed that the main condition for the emergence (birth) of life on the planet is the presence of water. But if only 80 years ago his opinion was quite reasonable, although it was not welcomed by the academic community, it is difficult to even imagine what resonance the judgment would have caused in the distant Middle Ages, or even earlier.

Paying tribute to the mind and clarity of W. Churchill, today few people doubt the existence of another life in the universe. A lot of UFOs, unidentified objects on the Moon, new discoveries in Antarctica – all the phenomena make us change the point of view of even ossified materialists.

A reasonable assumption led to a bonfire

Just some 400 years ago, in 1600, in February, Giordano Bruno was executed. He can be considered a magician or a martyr, but still it is impossible to deny the reasonableness of the assumption of the “theory of Copernicus.” Another thing is that society was completely unprepared for such news and simply did not want to hear them.

Giordano Bruno
He was a great scientist and his fate was decided.

How the secrets of the Catholic Church came true

In 1925, it became known that just over 30 years ago, J. Bruno’s secret case was found in the Vatican’s secret archive. But Pope Leo XIII forbade the publication of the data and took the matter personally to himself. 

Documents Giordano Bruno
A great document that has kept centuries of secrecy

Documents were hidden, another fifteen years were spent searching for them. And only in the dashing years of World War II, the case was published. Scientists have learned that the “greatest heresy of J. Bruno” was not that “the earth revolves around the Sun,” they knew it anyway, but in his idea of ​​the many inhabited worlds of the Universe. The Church just could not stand it and sent the scientist to the stake. 

Why the Catholic Church was hostile to the idea of ​​intelligent life in the universe

The best minds of mankind believed in the existence of many worlds: Democritus, Epicurus. In the works of Plutarch, the heroes argue about whether there is life on the visible side of the Moon, or whether it is the “afterlife” for the souls of people who died on Earth — quite “seditious” reasoning, but they still did not burn Plutarch.

Cicero and Pliny were not sent to death – these geniuses considered nonsense any discussion of the “lunar kingdom of the dead.” It was to these denials that the heads of the Catholic Church joined. For the latter, discussions on the subject of many worlds remained a sign of paganism. In addition, the doctrine of the “Pythagoreans” was then spread, which said: the souls of people come from the Milky Way, they can be resettled.

Athanasius of Alexandria did not accept any refutation of his theory “The world is one because God is one.” Other considerations were attributed to the wicked, but so far not considered heretical.

The trouble came from the theologian Origen, who voiced thoughts about the transmigration of souls. After such a “failure” of the church, scientists of that time could no longer turn a blind eye to possible discoveries. Isidore of Seville tried to limit the scope of the mind to his own list of heresies.

“There are other heresies that do not have a founder and a recognized name …. Someone thinks that the souls of people fall into demons or animals, others argue about the state of the world, someone believes that the number of worlds is infinite. “

I. Sevilsky (“List of heresies”)

Thanks to this authoritative conclusion, all other interpretations, including scientific ones, fell under the heading “heresy” and were considered punishable. A certain Rupert from Deutsche shows an excellent example of the behavior of church ministers of that time. Praising God, Rupert of Deutsche curses in his words “heretics-epicureans, discussing many worlds.”

After the advent of the Inquisition courts, the “heresy of many worlds” is fixed under the serial number 77 “according to Augustine’s list.”

These ideas of condemnation were accepted by all Catholic priests, Giordano Bruno, who held a practical view, had no chance of survival.

The occult system of Giordano Bruno on the plurality of worlds

Inspired by the work of Copernicus, J. Bruno discusses the plurality of intelligent creatures. The scientist builds his statements on the teachings of the “Pythagoreans.” 

Book of Giordano Bruno
The same book for which the Catholic Church sent J. Bruno to the stake

In his theories, the scientist spoke of the omnipotence of God, of his ability to create not one but many worlds. Quotes from Epicurus, Lucretius, and other contemporaries and founders of the theory convinced the minds of young youths, seditious thoughts developed in them. The church simply could not allow such a heresy, and the fate of the scientist was a foregone conclusion.

The denouement came after the young associates began to preach seditious thoughts among the masses. However, the proceedings in the Inquisition dragged on, no one wanted to destroy the Dominican priest, who was J. Bruno. The philosopher defended himself by stubbornly rejecting all charges. He brilliantly proved that he did not give up his belief in the miracles of the Lord, in his omnipotence, but immediately defended his theory of the plurality of worlds with ardor.

The main reason for the burning of the scientist: the inquisitors did not consider him a scientist, a philosopher, but only a priest who refused his dignity. 

After studying the works of Bruno by the representatives of the Inquisition, the court presented 8 heretical allegations demanding the renunciation of what was said. The scientist did not make a deal with reason and conscience. After three attempts to enlighten the scientist, on January 20, 1600, Giordano Bruno was sent to the stake.

Execution of Giordano Bruno
It was a terrible execution – a man burned alive

Only heretics were burned alive, as Giordano Bruno was recognized. He died as a martyr, and not as an adherent of occultism.

New Physics: Mysterious radiation pointed to the verge of discovering a “ghost” particle that makes up dark matter

Physicists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the United States have found that the mysterious high-energy radiation emitted from the vicinity of a group of neutron stars may indicate the existence of axions – not yet discovered particles within the framework of New Physics, the search for which has been going on since 1977. It is assumed that special types of axions form dark matter. This is reported in an article published in the journal Physical Review Letters. The research is summarized in a press release on Phys.org.

It is believed that axions can form in the core of neutron stars and transform into photons in the presence of a powerful magnetic field. To detect the electromagnetic radiation associated with axions, you need to find stars that do not emit radiation at different wavelengths that can mask the desired signal. 

These objects include the Magnificent Seven neutron stars that emit only X-ray and ultraviolet radiation. They are located at a distance of 200-500 parsecs from the Earth.

The researchers ruled out the scenario that the excess X-rays produced by the Magnificent Seven are actually emitted by other, more distant objects. These sources would be found in datasets from the XMM-Newton and Chandra X-ray space telescopes.

The extra X-rays likely originate from axions hitting an extremely strong electromagnetic field billions of times stronger than the magnetic fields that could be created on Earth, the scientists concluded. The axions themselves resemble neutrinos in their properties, since both have insignificant masses and rarely and weakly interact with matter.

The axion is currently viewed as the most promising candidate for dark matter particles, since another hypothetical candidate, the massive WIMP particle, has gone unnoticed in experiments aimed at detecting it. 

In addition, there may be a whole family of axion-like particles that form dark matter, as suggested by string theory. If axions are found, it will prove that there is a whole new area of ​​physics outside the Standard Model describing the properties of all known particles.

To find out, the next step will be to study white dwarfs, which are not expected to emit X-rays.

“If we see an abundance of X-rays there too, our arguments will be pretty compelling,” said lead author Benjamin Safdie.

The goal of human civilization is to create AI and disappear?

The goal of human civilization is to create AI and disappear? 101

Various sources often talk about civilizations that lived long before us. They all developed, prospered for a while, and then disappeared in an incomprehensible way. 

What is the reason for their decline, we probably will not know. All we can do is admire the remains of stone buildings, over which time has almost no power.

While looking for an answer, we somehow accidentally stumbled upon an interesting saying about the life of Japanese samurai: “A samurai has no goal, but a path.” In the end, the “path of the samurai” ended in what is known – death. The path of any civilization ended in the same way.

If you look at the issue through the prism of a samurai saying, then there is no point in looking for why and how civilization ended its existence. Probably, the process itself and its result are important here. But to whom is it important and what result does it expect?

Mysterious director

Apparently, behind the curtains of this “ancient theater” there is a mysterious “director” who periodically makes necessary adjustments to the history of civilization.

To figure out what’s what, you need to look at current trends in science. Where does a person strive with such an irresistible desire to “play God.” This attracts him and at the same time frightens him, but in no way turns him away from the intended path. Most likely, artificial intelligence (AI) is the purpose of our civilization’s existence.

About 50 years ago it would have seemed nonsense, but to someone, perhaps even now. However, if you trace the last 100 years of the life of our civilization, you get the feeling that most of the discoveries were given to mankind at the same time. A powerful leap has taken place in a hundred years. Why did it happen?

At the beginning of the last century, scientists recognized the existence of fields that have memory and the ability to store and transmit information. It is very likely that such or a similar field can be around the Earth and, more interesting, possess intelligence. Isn’t this the same “Director” hiding behind the screen of the “ancient theater”?

If this is so, then at a certain moment the “Director” gives the selected scientist “access” to certain knowledge (perhaps even in a dream, like Mendeleev), and another scientific breakthrough occurs in the world. Step by step, discovery after discovery, humanity is steadily moving towards the creation of AI. The trend is already well visible.

The goal of human civilization is to create AI and disappear? 102

AI is probably the next “Babylon”, which will combine all the knowledge, culture and accumulated experience of civilization. In the future, the neural network will enter into a connection with the general information field and leave humanity without knowledge, technology, and even a spoken language. This will be the next decline of civilization. And the “Director” will receive another array of new data (experience) in order to start creating a new civilization.

If someone believes that past civilizations ended in large-scale conflicts, then most likely this is already the consequences of “turning off” AI.

llinn, said that the development of artificial intelligence (AI) threatens humanity. According to him, humans face three key threats, but it is AI that should be feared most of all, the expert said. 

Tallinn explained that at the moment, no one can predict what development AI will achieve in the next decades. In addition, the fact that scientists are creating artificial intelligence that can form a new AI without human intervention is also a cause for concern.

In addition, as the co-founder of the popular video calling service noted, the development of synthetic biology also causes concern. According to him, this direction in science allows the creation of artificial DNA sequences and biological systems that may not exist in nature.

Tallinn also drew attention to the fact that he fears we are entering an era of “unknown unknowns”, things that people are not even able to imagine right now.

Volkswagen robot will autonomously charge cars: a working prototype presented

Volkswagen robot will autonomously charge cars: a working prototype presented 104

The renowned German car manufacturer announced a new development. This time, engineers have created a unique robot capable of autonomously charging electric vehicles. 

For more than a year, specialists have been developing this project, but only now the concern was ready to demonstrate the first working prototype. The robot is ready to charge electric vehicles and has shown the high efficiency of this process.

It is called the Mobile Charging Robot, and experts have already compared it to the R2-D2 droid from Star Wars, including squeaks and clangs. Indeed, there is a similarity. Before implementing this idea, the engineers decided that robots should be allowed to charge cars parked in large residential complexes.

This will save their owners from leaving in order to find a gas station. Another advantage is that large parking lots and garages do not have to contain several expensive charging points for electric cars. The car company said in a press release that the robot works exclusively autonomously.

It independently controls and interacts with the vehicle being charged. It opens the cover of the charging socket and independently connects the power plug, then disconnects it. The robot looks like a trailer, which is a mobile energy storage.

It is capable of charging multiple electric vehicles at the same time. Despite the fact that the manufacturer confidently praises its concept, experts saw inefficiency in the fact that first it is necessary to charge the robot’s battery, which is then used to recharge electric cars.

Volkswagen Group Components CEO Thomas Schmall noted that creating an efficient charging infrastructure for the cars of the future is an important step in the company’s development.

Its engineers focus on finding solutions to avoid costly do-it-yourself measures. The mobile robot is only part of the concept that will continue to be developed.
