Krauss '11: Cosmic Connections

PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL & HERE TOO:- https://www.youtube.com/user/MrMindFeed Conway Hall, London Sunday 16th Oct. 2011 "Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust" Lawrence Krauss Professor of Earth and Space Exploration, Lawrence Krauss, isn't immune to small irritations of daily living. However, he can see the bigger picture. In this 'secular sermon' he shows how each of us is connected to the cosmos in ways we'd never imagine. From the stardust we're made of, to the atoms we breathe, to the curving of space time that governs the way we make our way through traffic jams, to time travel itself. Dr Lawrence Krauss is a prolific and popular writer and an indefatigable fighter for science and critical thinking. At Arizona State University, he is Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Physics Departments, Associate Director of the Beyond Center, and Co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative. He is also Director of the exciting new Origins Initiative, which explores questions ranging from the origin of the Universe to the origins of human culture and cognition. He has studied and explained matters from the microscopic to astronomical. In performing with the Cleveland Orchestra, judging at the Sundance Film Festival, and his Grammy nominated notes for Telarc Records, Krauss has also bridged the chasm between science and popular culture. http://www.theschooloflife.com/ http://vimeo.com/theschooloflife

longitude waves? now calculate for the local electric field of the smaller radius objects, Hartley 2 Temple one conductors. The smaller radius objects reflect the total charge density of the equal potential of the surrounding charges of large radius, and high potential. surface area.... it is now clear these two objects are reflecting the external torque precession that is periodic. A clear indicator OF THE GIVEN LARGE RADIUS OBJECTS. THE BINARY MASS JOINED TOGETHER WITH OUR OWN SUN. please REVIEW LECTURES 4 THROUGH 10. thanks Walter..

Sir Martin Rees: Earth in its final century?

http://www.ted.com In a taut soliloquy that takes us from the origins of the universe to the last days of a dying sun 6 billion years later, renowned cosmologist Sir Martin Rees explains why the 21st century is a pivotal moment in the history of humanity: the first time in history when we can materially change ourselves and our planet. Stunning imagery of cosmological wonders show us the universe as we know it now. Speaking as "a concerned member of the human race," Rees harkens to the wisdom of Einstein, calling for scientists to act as moral compasses, confronting the coming developments and ensuring our role in "the immense future."

When Galaxies Collide

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/08/02/Martin_Rees_Lifes_Future_in_the_Cosmos Astrophysicist Martin Rees explains how astronomers use advanced computer models to help understand the shapes and motions of galaxies. ----- President of the Royal Society, England's Astronomer Royal, Lord Martin Rees brings a lifetime of cosmological inquiry to a crucial question: What if human success on Earth determines life's success in the universe? He thinks that civilization's chances of getting out of this century intact are about 50-50. He is hopeful that extraterrestrial life already exists, but there's no sign of it yet. But even if we are now alone, he notes that we may not even be the halfway stage of evolution. There is huge scope for post-human evolution, so that "it will not be humans who watch the sun's demise, 6 billion years from now. Any creatures that then exist will be as different from us as we are from bacteria or amoebae." Appropriately, Rees's Long Now talk was at the Chabot Space & Science Center in the hills above Oakland, in the planetarium. - The Long Now Foundation Martin Rees is Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics and Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge. He holds the honorary title of Astronomer Royal and also Visiting Professor at Imperial College London and at Leicester University. After studying at the University of Cambridge, he held post-doctoral positions in the UK and the USA, before becoming a professor at Sussex University. In 1973, he became a fellow of King's College and Plumian Professor of Astronomy and Experimental Philosophy at Cambridge (continuing in the latter post until 1991) and served for ten years as director of Cambridge's Institute of Astronomy. From 1992 to 2003 he was a Royal Society Research Professor.

Chaldean Astrology/Astronomy (The Great Chaldeans Invented Astronomy)

Chaldean Astrology/Astronomy (The Great Chaldeans Invented Astronomy) علم التنجيم علم الفلك الكلداني The present distinction between astronomy and astrology is only relatively recent. In fact, most of those considered to be the founders of modern scientific astronomy, including Nicolaus Copernicus (1473 - 1543), Johannes Kepler (1571 - 1630) and Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727) were competent astrologers. The origins of astrology lie long before these intellectual giants however, and although the starry heavens have been used by man as a guide since time immemorial, the art now designated as astrology is considered to have originated with the Chaldeans, in Babylon, Mesopotamia, (now Iraq) around the fourth millennium BC. It was practiced in the temples, where it was blended with religious elements and was an important resource for farmers as well as physicians. It is thought to have spread to Egypt around the third millennium BC. Spread of Chaldean Astrology into Egypt, Greece, and Rome CHALDEAN astrology was diffused far and wide before the fall of Babylon in the sixth century B. C., and it long survived that historic event. Before the beginning of the Christian Era, Babylonian astrological notions had spread into Egypt, Greece, and Rome. W. F. Albright, in the following statement, gives a very brief and comprehensive summary of the facts about it: "The scientific importance of the Chaldaean astronomical records was well known to Aristotle, who commissioned his pupil Callisthenes to investigate them, which he did in the year 331 B. C. In the following decades the Babylonian scholar Berossus, who founded a Greek astrological school at Cos about 280 B. C., made the first translations of Babylonian astronomical texts into Greek, followed probably by others, since it has been lately shown by Schnabel and Schaumberger that Geminus (of Tyre?), the pupil of Posidonius, published Greek versions of Babylonian astronomical tables in the early first century B. C. About 250 B. C. a distinguished Chaldaean astrologist and writer, named Sudines (Shum-iddin), was active at Pergamum. Apparently Chaldaean astrology was favorably received from the outset in most Greek philosophical circles, and even Hipparchus became an adept. "The first Greek to popularize it in Egypt may have been Critodemus, and it was embraced there with such extraordinary ardor that Egypt became the classical land of astrological „research,‟ in the second century B. C. (Cumont, L'Egypte des Astrologues, Brussels, 1937), thanks to the activity of two native Egyptians, Nechepso and Petosiris (c. 150 B. C.). It is quite possible that these Egyptian astrologers simply took advantage of the situation to popularize an Egypto-Chaldaean astrology dating back to the Persian period, to which the legendary Ostanes must have belonged."1 1 W. F. Albright, From Stone Age to Christianity, pp. 262, 263. Though astrology was known far back in the time of the Roman Republic, it is in the Empire that it became very popular among the Latins. Cato, in his treatise De Agricultura (written between 234 and 149 B. C.), refers to the Chaldean astrologers as active in his country then.2 In 139 B. C. they were expelled from Rome by Cneius Cornelius Hispallus. But in time they returned. There is evidence that Julius Caesar was inclined to astrology. Cicero, his contemporary, denounced it as charlatanism. The emperor Augustus Caesar believed in it, and Marcus Manhius, a Roman astrologer, compiled a treatise on the subject, entitled Astronomica, which he dedicated to this Roman ruler. Propertius (30-15 B. C.) lamented the fact that exploitation by astrology was common.3 Juvenal mentions that the women of his time were greatly interested in it.4 Suetonius reveals that many of the emperors of the first century A. D. 2 esteemed astrology very highly.5 Horoscopes were made of the sons of leading families as soon as the babies were born. Tiberius and Nero favored it to the extent that they had in their employ the two Thrasylli, father and son, who were noted astrologers. In the works of Tacitus, Juvenal, and Aulus Gellius frequent mention is made of the Chaldaei or mathematici. Because astrology often became in volved in politics and unfavorable prognostications were made concerning those in power, some of the emperors most devoted to this superstition expelled the astrologers from Rome.6 Chaldean Numerology is always performed in synergy with Chaldean Astrology, and are inseparable. Numerological analysis always precedes that of the Natal Chart, both sharing the same objectives. Chaldean astrology is based on the Sidereal Zodiac and the Equal house system. Its predictive methods are primarily based on the Luminary Planets: the Sun and Moon.

"2012" THE MAYAN ASTRONOMICAL PREDICTION AND RENEWAL OF TIME

2012 the Maya is a composition inspired by the Mayan culture and their predictions based on their astronomical theories in 2012, I used two Mayan languages (Lacandon Maya and Maya Chorti) and is intended to strengthen our identity through these ancestral proposals that 2012 is a year of change and renewal of mankind. 1) THE SOLAR AND ALIGNMENT TORMENT Galatica (expose the astronomical, specifically those effects of the sun to the earth predicted by the Mayans, and the alignment of the planets in the solar system with the center of the galaxy the Mayans called Hunab Ku, these effects have been confirmed by NASA) 2) THE EMPEROR'S ABSENCE (Honduras is a bride abandoned by their emperor, the emperor is the love we have for our country all Hondurans, have actually abandoned bride in her depression Honduras wants to die because the Hondurans not love, is where TAB IX quote TODAY BRING ME WANT TO PLACE BEYOND THE SICOPOMPO comes to me ... it's like a lot of state of depression) 3) THE CEREMONY OF THE ADVENT OF THE SIXTH SUN (something astronomical for Mayan galactic day is 25,625 years and is divided into 5 small cycles of 5125 years: galactic morning, noon galactic galactic sunset, dusk and dawn galactic galactic is the fifth sun, the sixth sun is the new beginning of another 25,625 years galactic day begins again with the first small galactic cycle called the morning. "Advent ceremony of the sixth sun" is the heart of my composition, here it is developing the transition from fifth to sixth sun sun. The contents of the first text that refers astronomically soprano sings this pregnant relentless sun light emitted by the KU HUNAB (galactic center) that brings rays of renewal with the new era of Maya, "that your shadows come and as larks" are those wonders that heaven gives us in this year of galactic alignments, such as the transit of Venus across the sun that occurred on June 5 in some countries and 6 June in others. Choir with vocal strength proclaims the restoration of the kingdom of Honduras "Honduras Bride restores his kingdom, Honduras Mayans give you new sun", the spiritual flute speaks for our civilization Maya holding those beautiful sounds mystics percussion backing which is the inheritance of the DNA of our great ancestors rhythmic. During the second text sung by the soprano "Rulers of Copan Dynasty Ancestral everyone stands today and sing" I'm inviting all ancestral power delivery make us of the sixth sun (morning galactic), giving honor to who is the genesis of that great civilization KINICH Yax Kuk Mo and the last governor who was YAX PAC) I have prepared a short excerpt from a training video for better understanding of the astronomical theory of our ancestors: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDyfzwKx10Y 4) RENEWAL OF EMPEROR (the advent of the sixth sun has brought renewal to the emperor and love for Honduras by us is renowned, the 2012 is a commitment of all Hondurans to improve the country based on the theory that it is maya renewal time) 5) THE MEETING WITH THE SOVEREIGN (the encounter with God is our Lord, is the closing coral in Maya chorti that says "I was walking and at the top of the mountain the sovereign God enlighten me" and closes with EMUTCAYGUISACOPASAGMI soprano is "the bird song at dawn" bone when a bird sings at dawn is synonymous with hope, dawn, Dew, of positivism, bright fresh color etc ...

Mayan Cosmology Cycle Ends: Precision Cosmology Progresses

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) In a public talk in front of the Great Pyramid of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza, Berkeley Lab's Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist George Smoot discusses the remarkable precision that ancient Mayan astronomers achieved solely with the naked eye and comments on the significance of the approaching end of the current World Age of the 5,000-year-long Mayan Long-Count Calendar, due to conclude on the 2012 winter solstice. No, the end of the world is not at hand, Smoot says, but it's true that we're undergoing a fantastic transition in cosmology. The Mayan view of the universe was based on the sun and moon, a handful of planets, and a couple of thousand stars. Ours is an evolving cosmos reaching back over 13 billion years, based on a cornucopia of data accumulating almost daily and including hundreds of billions of galaxies.
