Repensando la experiencia soviética

Por • 16 feb, 2021 • Category: Opinion

La fuerte iniciativa del poder político, como llave de las transformaciones en todos los planos, fue un rasgo que compartió la revolución rusa, llevándolo al extremo, con la Revolución francesa. Pero la dejó atrás en cuanto a la preeminencia de la política sobre la economía y la sociedad. Bajo este punto de vista, la Revolución rusa se alejó no solo de la referencia británica.



The Quantum Field Theory on Which the Everyday World Supervenes

Por • 30 ene, 2021 • Category: Opinion

Effective Field Theory (EFT) is the successful paradigm underlying modern theoretical physics, including the «Core Theory» of the Standard Model of particle physics plus Einstein’s general relativity. I will argue that EFT grants us a unique insight: each EFT model comes with a built-in specification of its domain of applicability. Hence, once a model is tested within some domain (of energies and interaction strengths), we can be confident that it will continue to be accurate within that domain. Currently, the Core Theory has been tested in regimes that include all of the energy scales relevant to the physics of everyday life (biology, chemistry, technology, etc.). Therefore, we have reason to be confident that the laws of physics underlying the phenomena of everyday life are completely known.



John Maynard Keynes and Ludwig von Mises on Probability

Por • 20 ene, 2021 • Category: Opinion

Los paradigmas económicos de Ludwig von Mises por una parte, y de John Maynard Keynes por otra, han sido correctamente reconocidos como contradictorias a nivel teórico, y como antagonistas, con respecto a sus implicancias políticas prácticas y públicas. Desde el punto de vista característico también han sido reivindicadas por sectores de oposición del espectro político. Aún así, las respectivas visiones de estos autores con respecto al significado e interpretación de la probabilidad, muestra una afinidad conceptual más estrecha que los que se ha reconocido en la literatura.



More violence to emerge in US as ‘divergences remain unsolved’

Por • 13 ene, 2021 • Category: Opinion

The US will be more unpredictable in the future due to endless internal struggles, and in the final 10 days of the Trump administration, they will be disempowered by the Democrats and establishment elites, so its «final madness or final frenzy» is mostly a «war of words» rather than actual actions that could really endanger other countries in their final moments in the government, experts noted. In the next 10 days, the Trump administration will not be able to incite any new trouble worldwide, and although politicians like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo might still speak nonsense to provoke other countries, the administration has no authority to cause actual problems and crises, since Trump and his administration have been muted and isolated, Chinese analysts said.



Document:How Chrystia Freeland Organised Donald Trump’s Coup in Venezuela

Por • 11 ene, 2021 • Category: Opinion

On Monday, February 5th, 2019, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland announced that the 14 countries of the Lima Group — who had actually formed themselves under her direction into this new group on 8 August 2017 in order to overthrow and replace Venezuela’s current President Nicolás Maduro — have now been joined (though she didn’t say to what extent) by the EU, and by 8 other individual countries.[1] She stated:[2] She, along with US President Donald Trump, had, all along, been the actual leaders of this international diplomatic effort, to violate the Venezuelan Constitution blatantly, so as to perpetrate the coup in Venezuela.[3] Her active effort to replace Venezuela’s Government began with her formation of the Lima Group, nearly two years ago.



El estudio académico de lo esotérico

Por • 5 ene, 2021 • Category: Opinion

Este artículo se divide en dos partes. Primero, analiza el desarrollo lingüístico e histórico de los conceptos esotérico y esoterismo, proceso que evolucionó a una incipiente «conciencia histórica» entre los propios esoteristas, influenciada por el influjo historicista romántico, que conformó un nuevo tipo de esoterismo en tiempos de ciencia, democracia y modernidad. Y segundo, explica el proceso de transformación disciplinaria de los estudios de lo esotérico, el esoterismo y la esoterología hasta la imposición de la categoría académica de los «estudios de esoterismo occidental».



La recepción de la filosofía de Heidegger en Latinoamérica

Por • 29 dic, 2020 • Category: Opinion

Cuando se habla de recepción en este sentido no se trata, claro está, de un fenómeno físico relativamente simple, como verter un líquido de un recipiente en otro, sino de un diálogo muy complejo entre seres humanos o culturas diversas, donde es posible tanto la comprensión como la incomprensión, la falta de interés, e incluso el malentendido y la agresión. En la parte inicial de mi exposición me referiré a la situación espiritual en que se encontraba Latinoamérica cuando se inició su relación con el pensamiento de Heidegger, y señalaré ejemplos de maneras deficientes o erradas de comprender sus ideas, así como el surgimiento progresivo de una comprensión positiva de estas.



Modified Relational Quantum Mechanics

Por • 22 dic, 2020 • Category: Opinion

A modified version of relational quantum mechanics is developed based on the three following ideas. An observer can develop an internally consistent description of the universe but it will, of necessity, differ in particulars from the description developed by any other observer. The state vector is epistomological and relative to a given quantum system as in the original relational quantum mechanics. If two quantum systems are entangled, they will observe themselves to be in just one of the many states in the Schmidt biorthonormal decomposition and not in a linear combination of many.



Toward Quantum-Inspired Model of Mind

Por • 18 dic, 2020 • Category: Opinion

This paper proposes a mathematical formalism for describing the machinery of human mind creativity. Since some functions of mind support discreteness of cognition, but others support its continuity, while time in physics is always continuous, an attempt to overcome the continuous/discrete duality of mind performance is implemented via utilization of special critical points: terminal attractors and repellers that act as autonomous biological clock. In this paper, attention is concentrated upon the discrete mode of the mind activity since the continuous mode was introduced and discussed in details in our previous publications



Mechanics by E. Nelson. Derivation of the Schrodinger-Euler-Poisson Equations

Por • 12 dic, 2020 • Category: Opinion

The aim of the article is to develop a stochastic interpretation of the quantum mechanics by E. Nelson. Based on the consideration of the averaged states of a chaotically wandering particle, the stationary and time-dependent stochastic Schrodinger-Euler-Poisson equations (47) and (92) were obtained, which coincided with the corresponding Schrodinger equations up to coefficients. In this case, the ratio of the reduced Planck constant to the particle mass is expressed through the averaged characteristics of a three-dimensional random process in which the considered wandering particle participates.
