“Man only uses 10% of his brain…” -unknown
Everyone has heard this phrase. Is it true? Who knows? Maybe if we had full access to our brains we might be able to figure it out. (Ha ha)
But if it is true then it implies that we are either too lazy to use our whole brains or that we are too stupid to use our whole brains. And so I don’t like the phrase. Nor would I ever agree with those implications. We are incredibly smart. We have already accomplished amazing things by simply putting our “minds” to the task. Everyone usually points to the “man on the moon” example to signify that we are extremely intelligent. But what about the radio signals that let us talk to the man on the moon? Or that let us communicate with the un-manned craft sailing past the ex-planet Pluto?
These radio waves and spacecrafts are not just flukes of nature, or merely something we stumbled across. Surely yes, we did stumble across the electro-magnetic wave that was the seedling for the development of radio. But everything after that stumble was a deliberate part of man intentionally trying to develop radio waves and so many other things that spring from them, like microwaves.
So just that one little example makes me think that man is quite capable of using his entire facilities to create and exist.
So then why don’t we already have spacecraft that can fly at speeds close to light and hover-boards like Marty McFlie’s that can work on a patch of ground? If our minds are so wonderful and our ability to use them endless – then why do we always seem stuck at a certain level of technology?
Here’s a hint: it’s not from our lack of ability. But rather it is due to the confounded way that the human mind needs to compact all the information it deals with. We simply can not retain all the input that we ever see, taste, feel, or hear. I don’t think there is a single computer system on earth that could retain every little pixel of color or depth that the rods and cones in the back of your eyes have seen over the entire coarse of your life. It’s simply too much information. So the mind categorizes things in order to cut down on the specific information it needs to retain. For example, you have probably seen over 5,000 different shades of yellow during your lifetime – but you can not recall all of them because your mind categorizes together those that are similar. You might be able to recall a half dozen or so yellow’s from your past on a good day.
So how does that hinder technology? Specifically it doesn’t – but generally it whoops the heck out of it. When we study things today we tend to prioritize only those things that we have physically observed – and we tend to discount those things that we haven’t. That’s a weird way of saying we are too confident for our own good.
If a team of electro-physicists want to build a television – or whoever it is that builds a television – then they have a list of parts that are known to be reliable when building a television. If they want to build a better television then they take those known parts and tweak them this way or that in order to improve them. And then joiola! Better TV!
The problem with that is visionaries. H.G. Wells was a visionary. But he was not a rocket scientist. If he was then we would have had a man on the moon 75 years earlier. As it however – we had to wait until a very young Robert Goddard read Well’s novels, become inspired, and eventually grew up to become a rocket scientist who then “stumbled across” certain dynamics that could later be used to carry a man to the moon. It’s a long process. We can shorten it.
I am a visionary. I know with everything I am that gravity is a pink unicorn. It is a fairy tale, a theory made up by a man who believed Christ came to Earth to pull large levers on a huge “gravity machine” buried somewhere under the Earth. Hogwash!
Why do scientists not take me seriously? Or any of the hundreds of others of us who are absolutely certain that the phenomenon currently understood as gravity is actually nothing more than magnetic attraction and repulsion?
The reason is because they took Newton’s theory and ran with it. They “scientificized” it – observed it – measured it – and wrote it down into a highly praised bible of all things gravity.
And even now – when they know we have faulty data that skews numbers coming back from the study of our expanding universe – and knowing that the only power in Einsteins theory of relativity that did not work was the power of gravity – they stick to the idea of gravity and assume that their observed data on gravity must be somehow off – and not the theory itself.
Wake up scientists! There is no such thing as gravity. Rewrite your laws using the rules of magnetism in conjunction with what you observed with gravity.
The scientists’ common argument is that magnetism can not be gravity because the numbers from observations of both do not match. Well, hello! That’s exactly what we are saying! Magnetism and hence gravity does not only emanate from the center of a planetary body – it emanates from every planetary body and galaxy in the universe and is bombarding us from all angles – and each planetary body is pummeled with magnetic waves from all angles – and not just attraction particles – which is basically what “gravity” was supposed to represent – but the affects from repulsion are being displayed from all different angles as well – which is where the skewed numbers come from.
So scientists please stop rejecting notions that you feel are untested and rely on your own observations of gravity to understand that the science itself is not marred – but rather the foundation of gravity is absolutely baseless.
I’m posting this for posterity. This realization will never occur in my lifetime – I’m absolutely certain of that. The way the human mind categorizes things and the sheer egos of those who consider themselves experts on gravity is simply too much to overcome. And I don’t know when it will happen, but someday in the future man will finally realize that gravity is a farce and study of magnetism will become so precise that we will knock down light years of barriers with booming technology, intergalactic travel, and so many amazing things will happen because we will then be able to harness it. But naysayers until then and those who are doomed to remain static will say these things are simply impossible.
And when that day comes – when this vision is realized – and if this ledger survives – then I want that generation to know that I was john Richter – a visionary – and that nothing is impossible. Never say never young people. Cut out that technology gap and don’t get too married to a single notion.
