Tuesday Hatred: Anoma Lies
Apparently there is an interest in what exactly happened in the 17 or so picoseconds after The Big Bang. I never bought The Big Bang. It is not because you are in a wheel chair and super intelligent that you are right about everything. Filtering down this sentence to its essence: it is not because you are super intelligent that you are right about anything outside of your own mathematical model. I’m not one of those who believe the search for the Higgs boson is a black hole for government funds. I believe it is a great show of civilization that we allow thousands of clever people to perfect our grasp of physics. In fact, they should be with tens of thousands and millions more to perfect our grasp of linguistics, literature and so many other fine, and at first sight futile, fields of knowledge.
I do hate however that many of these bright men and women take their mathematical models and then romanticize their variables into waves of partying particles and dens of densities. Nothing they can do can beat Gene Roddenberry. All this vulgarizing are nothing else than rotten berries for those easily inclined to mistake the cosmos for an alternative to some self made critical thinking. As if dividing by zero can be meaningful to anybody else than a zero.
I also hate the real black hole of government funding of science, to wit: money spent on what is so traditionally called innovation. Whether it is in the American form of asking corporations to develop some novel means of more effectively killing or restraining people or whether it is in the European form of those orgies of red tape known as research programs, the bottom line of them is to increase the bottom line of companies which complain of excessive pampering of citizens but want as much of their taxes (or electoral funding) back in the form of this or that innovation support.
I am starting to hate innovation with a vengeance because it is quickly becoming the anti-matter to creativity in support of the profit-maximization of companies too lazy and too sterile to convince themselves of trying to do something for the world. There is no pride on the dark side.
