The winner is the losing party? Of course this article’s header must be a trick. How else can The Losing Party end up being the winner in American politics? Something isn’t straight and forward.
But true it is.
In the United States, the voting structure results in a winner-take-all outcome. Candidates compete for a single seat, and just fifty percent plus one vote is all it takes to win. Most races are not neck-and-neck and, on average, we can say that winners get about sixty percent of the cast votes. That’s part one in this two-part equation.
The second part…
And why we better learn it before it is too late.
The universe appears a rather disorganized combination of whatever happened is indeed what happened. Yet, as we know it, intelligent life took hold on our planet Earth, and it did so on many other planets as well (only scientists are waiting for the proof and the pudding; no one else is).
So, how come we’ve not seen any of these intelligent aliens paying our planet a visit?
Because of the One Universal Law.
Anything an individual from a planet does to anything else out there besides the home planet…
The universe is not isotropic or homogeneous.
Scientists do not like to talk about the prior state of the universe. They feel like four blind men having to declare what is in front of them, each touching a different part of an elephant. They cling on to what they can agree on (it’s warm, it’s huge) and are silent about the rest.
And yet they all agree it is a single animal. The assumption that they got to touch one and the same animal is not a given. The four blind men could have touched two elephants, or different animals…
Everyone knows the Big Bang theory, and when asked only a few important things are likely not pronounced well in the reply. Most of the parts are so well known, no one pays much attention to the latest developments in cosmology.
The Big Whisper? Never heard of. And when explained, much scratching of heads follows. Let’s keep it simple and dig in.
First the name, Big Whisper. In 1965, scientists Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson were hearing the cosmic-microwave whisper of the Big Bang. They had discovered the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation, our oldest facts of the material universe.
United we stand, but don’t count on being just like 1 for long.
Once we recognize the true nature of being one, a better world awaits us.
There is only one planet Earth and it guides us through a vast amount of space. We are earthbound, and we should have just this one planet in mind when deciding what to do with ourselves. Yet instead of being united in our collective endeavors on this planet, we find ourselves divided in groups, communities, and nations. …
It is not what you think it is.
Looking at the world of democracy, it is disappointing how few nations there are in the world that are fully democratic nations. We have an extremely long way to go before the world is based on the voters, and not on special interest groups represented by one or two mighty individuals, by one or two parties fully in control in most nations of our world.
Many people think that democracy is the leading form of organization of our national governments with a few major exceptions like Russia and China. …
Aren't you tired of the two-party box? It is not them. It is us; we are boxed in. And somehow, we just megaphone out what they megaphone in. No surprising third-party perspective was ever told in the US, because even the third parties megaphone out what the two parties megaphoned in.
How come we call ourselves a democracy? In a democracy the voters are represented by their choice; we don't have that. We compete with other voters first before a 'representative' is picked. We vote in collectives, not individually. The majority in the district decides who represents you. Does that…
We are destined to live in real democracies.
Doughnut economics presents us a model for economic sustainability; it was conceptualized by Kate Raworth. This “playfully serious” concept is based on two natural economic lines we should not cross. On the outside of the doughnut, there is planet Earth and we will have to live within its given means and not deplete the natural (economic) resources. On the inside of the doughnut, we should not let anyone fall into the (economic) doughnut hole and look the other way.
In politics, the same two natural lines exist. On the outside, our politicians…
Scientists are using a religious model!
Rubber trees growing in Alaska? You gotta be kidding me. That’s not possible. But true it is — just as soon as we built greenhouses in Alaska and brought some rubber plants in from Brazil. It’s called planted evidence.
The Big Bang theory contains planted evidence, too. The super-hot conditions proposed in the Lambda-CDM, the most popular version of the Big Bang, are planted evidence. The super-hot conditions were imported from the laboratory and the Hadron Collider, used to examine matter to its finest details. Subsequently, the super-hot conditions got transplanted to the theory.
Explained the Big Whisper way
Anti-matter is real. But what is not known is its relationship with matter. This article is an abstract proposal how anti-matter can come about. The conclusion of the article is that anti-matter is a special occurrence of matter. It is not the opposite of matter, rather it can be seen as some kind of mirroring effect of matter, an inside-out occurrence of the same energy that normally produces matter.
First, a larger setup needs to be shown. The Big Whisper theory is a spin-off Big Bang theory, using the exact same scientific facts…
