The Origins of Scientific" Law"
Astronomy is Astrology
Political spinning apologetics and marketing sloganeering turn Astronomy into "Science" Early court astrologers were astronomers. The word was astronomy. In other words Astronomers would attempt to predict the future using esoteric mathematics and the observations of the heavens run through a very biased filter of fantastic and illogical reasoning.
The word Astronomy is older than the word Astrology.
Astronomy: "c. 1200, "astronomy, astrology, scientific or occult study of heavenly bodies," from Old French astrenomie "astronomy, astrology," from Latin astronomia, from Greek astronomia, abstract noun from astronomos, literally "star-regulating," from astron "star" (see star (n.)) + nomos "arranging, regulating; rule, law" from PIE root *nem- "to divide, distribute, allot" (see nemesis). Perhaps originally with reference to mapping the constellations or movements of planets."
"In English, it is earlier than astrology and originally included the senses now distributed over both words; the gradual differentiation happened 16c.-17c. In Latin and later Greek, astronomia tended to be more scientific than astrologia."
"astrology (n.) late 14c., "calculation and foretelling based on observation of heavenly bodies," from Latin astrologia "astronomy, the science of the heavenly bodies," from Greek astrologia "astronomy," literally "a telling of the stars," from astron "star" (see star (n.)) + -logia "treating of" (see -logy). "
"Originally identical with astronomy and including scientific observation and description. The special sense of "astronomy applied to prediction of events" was divided into natural astrology "the calculation and foretelling of natural phenomenon" (tides, eclipses, dates of Church festivals, etc.), and judicial astrology "the art of judging occult influences of stars and planets on human affairs." Differentiation between astrology and astronomy began late 1400s and by 17c. this word was limited to the sense of "reading influences of the stars and their effects on human destiny."
So-called "Laws of Science" are no such thing. This is marketing slang. Natural phenomena is just that. Our attempts at describing and modeling natural occurrences are not laws but are models.
The use of the word "Law" is by intent and the purpose is to further enforce social control over human imagination. Law is something human beings create and force each other to follow. Nature and natural principle is. Laws are hoaxes. Laws are fake. The field of science (like other areas of official study) are wielded like propaganda weapons. We must accept the authority of circular reasoned fallacies sold as proven fact, Yet Astronomy really was always a mystical art and not science, despite the math and observations. Astronomers were the ones who were employed to study the stars in order to divine the future for their Royals masters.
These same minds dreamt up the fantasies sold as Astronomy today.
MODERN COSMOLOGY IS BORN: NEWTON = SOCIAL ORDER THROUGH SCIENTIFIC DISORDER
Sir Isaac Newton's work is a great example of propaganda (or mythology). There is some demonstrable principle and some solid mathematics mixed with a whole lot of mythology. Newton worked at the Royal Mint and he was a Royal Society kind of guy. The Royal Society was created to keep information and reality screened from us in the mass public. Cosmology (astronomy) is about enforcing order on us, the mass human resource. We need to be managed and the almighty dollar $$$ is the best and most powerful Holy Symbol any shepherd has ever dreamt of.
"Isaac Newton was, as considered by others within his own lifetime, an insightful and erudite theologian. He wrote many works that would now be classified as occult studies and religious tracts dealing with the literal interpretation of the Bible."
"Newton's conception of the physical world provided a stable model of the natural world that would reinforce stability and harmony in the civic world."
"Newton saw a monotheistic God as the masterful creator whose existence could not be denied in the face of the grandeur of all creation. Although born into an Anglican family, by his thirties Newton held a Christian faith that, had it been made public, would not have been considered orthodox by mainstream Christianity; in recent times he has been described as a heretic."
To Scale: The Solar System
This is the solar system model to scale. Consider that when most people think of the solar system, they think of the model of the solar system pictured above and do not consider the actual scale and proportions of this model.
The video below shows us what the scale and proportions would actually look like. Please notice the 1 1/2 meter sized model of the Sun is incapable of illuminating the model planets which are represented with lights sources themselves. You would think that it would be easy to demonstrate the solar system model as an actual physical model. Yet we can see clearly that there are many very real problems with the Heliocentric model. This is what an artifact of a religion looks like.
Modern Astronomy is not demonstrable science, it is a religion based on illogically derived Metaphysical concepts, backed up with peer reviewed illogical, mathematical models.
Modern Astronomy is and has always been a set of contradictory superstitious beliefs. The basic, original Heliocentric model and "theories" are as illogical as the Big Bang, Black Hole, Multiverse of Cacophony of today's Astronomical "model".
Clarke's three laws, are absurd. (This seems like an obvious joke.)
- When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
- The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
- Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
"Clarke's first law was proposed by Clarke in the essay "Hazards of Prophecy: The Failure of Imagination", in Profiles of the Future (1962).
The second law is offered as a simple observation in the same essay. Its status as Clarke's second law was conferred by others. In a 1973 revision of Profiles of the Future, Clarke acknowledged the second law and proposed the third. "As three laws were good enough for Newton, I have modestly decided to stop there".
The third law is the best known and most widely cited, and appears in Clarke's 1973 revision of his essay "Hazards of Prophecy: The Failure of Imagination." It echoes a statement in a 1942 story by Leigh Brackett: "Witchcraft to the ignorant, … simple science to the learned". An earlier example of this sentiment may be found in Wild Talents (1932) by Charles Fort: "...a performance that may some day be considered understandable, but that, in these primitive times, so transcends what is said to be the known that it is what I mean by magic."
Clarke gave an example of the third law when he said that while he "would have believed anyone who told him back in 1962 that there would one day exist a book-sized object capable of holding the content of an entire library, he would never have accepted that the same device could find a page or word in a second and then convert it into any typeface and size from Albertus Extra Bold to Zurich Calligraphic", referring to his memory of "seeing and hearing Lynotype machines which slowly converted ‘molten lead into front pages that required two men to lift them’".
A fourth law has been proposed for the canon, despite Clarke's declared intention of not going one better than Newton. Geoff Holder quotes: "For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert," which is part of American economist Thomas Sowell's "For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert, but for every fact there is not necessarily an equal and opposite fact", from his 1995 book The Vision of the Anointed. "
"In recounting a wide variety of odd phenomena, Fort largely disregards his previous teleportation theory, or at least incorporates him into his new thesis. Rather than a vague "Cosmic joker", as he postulated in his earlier books, the responsibility for these occurrences are freak powers that occur in the human mind, that cannot be naturally developed, but are there, Fort feels, as a sort of throwback to primeval times.
Fort discusses many topics he had touched on before, though generally in more detail than in his other works – poltergeists, spontaneous human combustion, animal mutilations, vampires, and ghosts – along with many supposed cases of psychokinesis and ability to control one's surroundings. His thesis is that in primeval times, man needed such extraordinary powers in order to survive in the wilderness, and that all people can potentially develop these powers if they literally put their mind to it. He also explores alleged cases of witchcraft and murder by mental suggestion, compiling an impressive list of "occult criminology" (people apparently being murdered under peculiar or unexplainable circumstances) in support. He also attacks the general sense of taboo which he feels prevents wild talents from being accepted, and suggests that such "talents" would become acceptable if science would deem them as such.
Fort also plays around with the idea that humans are able to transform into animals at will, citing a number of cases of werewolves and other similar creatures such as gorillas and hyenas. He also casually (and quite humorously) dismisses, in one chapter, reports of a talking dog that "disappeared in a thin, greenish vapor", because, in his view, it is an extraordinary event, and he only deals with quite ordinary ones.
Fort also briefly mentions a purported psychic occurrence that happened to him and his family where he imagined a picture frame in his house falling from the wall and it then happened. He regards this with his usual tongue-in-cheek manner, and it is doubtful (as usual) that he seriously believes what he is saying."
