The emphasis that science has placed on one particular form of
observation has made any kind of unified view quite impossible.
As said here before and often complained of elsewhere, the dualistic
view is self-justifying. It makes a (quite spurious) claim to "objectivity"
in such a way as to exclude human experience and knowing from any
possibility of delivering the "truth". The objectivity is spurious because
that choice of perspective is a subjective one. Perhaps more importantly,
it is quite simply out of touch with the scientific nature of reality.
Remember, we have used science itself both in
our method and our …Continue
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is the principal component and the only fully operational element of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) as of August 2018. The history of the GPS program pre-dates the space age. In 1951, Dr. Ivan Getting designed a three-dimensional, position-finding system based on time difference of arrival of radio signals. Shortly after the launch of Sputnik scientists confirmed that Doppler distortion could be used to calculate ephemerides, and, conversely, if a satellites position were known, the position of a receiver on earth could be determined. Within two years of the launch of Sputnik the first of five low-altitude “Transit” satellites for global navigation was launched. In 1967, the first of three “Timation” satellites demonstrated that highly accurate clocks could be carried in space. In parallel with these efforts, the 621B program was developing many of the characteristics of today’s GPS system.
In 1973 these parallel efforts were brought together as a network of U.S. satellites named the…

THE PROJECT began in response to a Science Section article in The New York Times that
referred to the existence of the fourth dimension. Although the article did not further
explore or question what this dimension might [BE] about, a group of curious artists did.
They committed to a weekly discussion called "Seminar 4D", where they would explore
Free Space, which focuses on the response-ability of the artist and freedom through
the APPROPRIATION of IDEAS.
In the beginning, there was AN IDEA, and THE IDEA created A THEME.…

as present; this is a thought according to our measure,

think that God IS NOT, just as we must love him purely

than he which The Guardian most poignantly referred to
in their article entitled THE EMPATHIC DETECTIVE namely
G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown, truly a man of GOD with
an inimitable understanding of the very pertinent fact
that GOD has no religion.
"Chesterton's conscious aim in writing the Father Brown
stories was to subvert the misconception that priests
must be unworldly innocents ignorant of the…Continue
