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.

Japan has developed an inflatable scooter that weighs practically nothing

The University of Tokyo engineers have developed the Poimo inflatable electric scooter, which is created individually for each owner. It is enough to send your photo to the manufacturers – and a personal optimized model will be assembled for you.

The scooter is designed with a special program for the body size of a particular user and his specific fit. Moreover, each owner is free to make any changes to this model. If he makes any changes to the drawing, the program will automatically redesign the electric bike to maintain its strength, stability and controllability. When the model is finished and approved, it is handed over to the manufacturer.

Scooter Poimo

The scooter consists of seven separate inflatable sections that are constructed from durable fabric and sewn with straight stitch. It remains to add electronic components – in particular, a brushless motor and a lithium-ion battery. 

The finished electric scooter weighs about 9 kg and can travel at speeds up to 6 km / h (that is, slightly faster than a pedestrian). It can work for an hour on one charge.

This is how the current version of Poimo looks like in action:

Excerpts from Elon Musk’s speech at the Martian Society convention

Elon Musk’s comments with questions relayed from the Mars Society Membership by Dr. Robert Zubrin, James L. Burk, and Carie Fay. Following Elon’s 30 min time, Dr. Zubrin took additional questions. This special event was part of the 2020 Mars Society Virtual Convention from October 14-18, 2020.

About Starship Test Schedule:

– entering orbit – with a probability of 80% -90% will take place in 2021

– the probability of the return of the ship and the 1st stage in this flight is 50%

– test of refueling in orbit – 2022

– Starship lunar version – 2022 or 2023

– Starship flight to Mars – around 2024

The goal of the Starship is to build a self-sufficient settlement on Mars as quickly as possible. Musk does not rule out the possibility that this will not be achieved during his lifetime. According to his rough estimates, to create a self-sufficient city, it will be necessary to deliver 1 million tons of cargo, which corresponds to 4-5 million tons in a low Earth orbit. Modern single-use launch vehicles are capable of removing less than 1% of this value.

“Disposable launch vehicles are completely stupid. They are a waste of time. I think people need to stop wasting time on this. If you try to sell a disposable plane, you will be thrown out of the office. If you try to sell a disposable car, you will also be thrown out of the office. “

A series of questions and answers followed:

What is the best landing site on Mars?

– I’m not sure about that. But I can name the criteria. The first of these is latitude: most likely it will be in the northern hemisphere, far enough to the north to have water ice, but to still have enough sunlight.It also needs to be low to get the most benefit from atmospheric braking.

How do you prioritize mission priorities: research, infrastructure construction, and science?

– The first will be the construction of a fuel plant.

A question from a teenager who wants to become an engineer and robot maker with a dream to work at SpaceX: what is the most important education in order to become an engineer?

– There are many varieties of this profession: you can be an aerospace engineer, in the field of electronics, software, or a chemical engineer involved in creating safe production of fuels. I think physics is a good foundation for critical thinking.

Boring Company was originally conceived as a tunnel manufacturing firm on Mars?

– No. It was originally something of a joke. I thought tunnels were a good solution to reduce the traffic problem in cities and improve the quality of life by turning parking lots into green parks. To do this, you need to go to 3d [get away from the “flat” infrastructure – approx. per.]. I think tunnels are good for Mars too. But there you need a lot lighter equipment: you don’t care about mass on Earth, but you will have to take care of it a lot when going to Mars.

At Boring Company, have you learned a lot of technology that might come in handy on Mars?

– I think, yes.

Do you have any tips for young people who love Mars but don’t know how to participate in its settlement?

– I think any strong advocate of the need to conquer Mars matters. People often don’t even think about it. I often talk to people who don’t even know about it. Therefore, I consider it important for humanity and consciousness in general to bring a discussion about this to society. Talking about it with friends and acquaintances – I think this is what we should do. In my estimate, we will spend less than 1% of our efforts on Mars exploration, exactly less than healthcare, perhaps even less than cosmetics – this will be enough to make life multi-planetary. But this requires people to start talking about it 100 times more often. I think this is what really matters. [the entire cosmonautics of the world is $ 424 billion a year, while cosmetics is $ 532 billion, and tobacco production is $ 849 billion – approx. per.]

What’s the coolest part about Starship development?

– I think the coolest detail is the ability to work with a great group of engineers and come up with interesting solutions. I think the best thing is the opportunity to work with smart and creative people who come up with solutions that were not available before. This is a great reward.

What do you focus on when hiring, especially with regard to engineers?

“We’re looking for signs of exceptional ability. Or at the very least, striving to do exceptional things at SpaceX.

Are you planning to make a Mars-Earth communication system like Starlink?

– Yes, I think we will use a laser, probably launched into orbit, to avoid atmospheric diffraction. Thus, it will be a laser beam going from the orbit of the Earth to the orbit of Mars. And also relay satellites in solar orbit, since the laser beam cannot be sent through the Sun [when it is between Mars and Earth – approx. per.].

Can Starship be used for other destinations like Venus and other planets?

– Starship will be able to travel to any target in the solar system that has a solid surface when fuel depots appear. It is not the kind of transport that will take us to other stars, but when we become a multi-planetary species, we will create a demand for innovation in space travel that will ultimately lead us to interstellar travel.

Cern Scientists Plan an Impressive Experiment – They Will Come Into A Parallel Universe

Cern scientists are once again preparing to impress the entire planet and become the focus of discussions with the new experiment they are planning.

An experiment that, if it brings the fascinating result that scientists have in mind,  will change the way we think about the world , will take place in the next few days at the Large Hadron Collider, the European nuclear center, Geneva CERN Research.

The astonishingly LHC complex, the largest, most energetic elemental accelerator in the world,  will be “fired” for the first time to its highest energy levels, in an effort to detect – or even create – tiny black holes. 

If it succeeds, then, a completely new universe will be revealed – rewriting not only the books of physics, but also the books of philosophy! 

It is possible, however,  that gravity from our universe will “leak” into this parallel universe, as LHC scientists say. 

From the Higgs boson to dark matter and the parallel universe

According to the British Express, the experiment is sure to “trigger” the critics, who are worried about the LHC, many of whom warn that the elementary particle accelerator will mark the end of our universe, creating a of the black hole.

Nevertheless,  Geneva has remained … intact since 2008, when the LHC began its spectacular “work”.

The first scientists at the Large Hadron Collider proved the existence of the Higgs boson – a key building block of the universe – and the LHC appears to be on track to locate “dark matter” – a previously undetectable force now considered that it constitutes the majority of matter in the universe, being, in fact, the reason why the latter is constantly expanding and moving away. 

So next week’s experiment is considered to change the game. 

The truth is out there

Mir Faizal, one of three heads of the three natural groups behind the experiment, said: 

“Like many parallel sheets, which are two-dimensional objects (width and length) can exist in a third dimension (height) , so parallel universes can also exist in higher dimensions. We anticipate that gravity can leak into extra dimensions, and if that happens, then tiny black holes can be produced in the LHC. 

Normally, when people think of the multiverse, they think of the interpretation of quantum mechanics by many worlds, where every possibility is realized. This cannot be tested and so it is a philosophy and not a science. We do not mean this with parallel universes. What we mean is real universes, in extra dimensions. The truth is out there.”
