LaRouche's Science of Physical Economy & Cosmic Radiation

"The only way you get a moral attitude of mankind of any durable value is that way. You have to show man, that we have a purpose for existing in the universe. That we, as a species, are making a contribution to the universe which is a necessary one, and a unique one. And that becomes our moral purpose. It becomes our confidence in what it is to be a human being. It becomes our appreciation of the value of a fellow human being: that they, too, can participate in this creativity. And there are no limits to this creativity.

"And what we're dealing with now, in this cosmic radiation field, which is a revolution in the conception of physics, will open up new dimensions, which people have not thought of before. In my mind, and for some of us, it already has opened up new dimensions. That's real economics! Not money! It's the creative powers of mind, as understood by people who work with economies, real economies."

Basement Interview: On What Makes Sense
Alicia Cerretani interviews Basement Research Team member Sky Shields on the issue of sense perception, as treated by Lyndon LaRouche in his latest report, "Science's Next New Undertaking: What Makes Sense?"

Special Feature:
The Extended Sensorium


Robert J. Moon: Science and Morality
February 14, 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Robert J. Moon (1911-1989), an important figure in 20th century nuclear science, and a close collaborator of the LaRouche movement. Oyang Teng interviews Larry Hecht, Editor of 21st Century Science & Technology magazine, on Moon's involvement in America's wartime Manhattan Project, his role as a founding member of the Fusion Energy Foundation, and his pioneering work on the fundamental structure of the atomic nucleus.

Evolutionary Potential
Sky Shields and Alicia Cerretani discuss the anti-entropic nature of life, and its relationship to creativity as an all-pervasive principle of the universe. They explore several examples of so-called "convergent evolution," and discuss its relationship to large-scale galactic, and inter-galactic cycles, as well as its significance for economic policy making today. Free-trade and liberalism are the enemies of creativity, and must be rejected in favor of true creative progress if we as a species are to survive the death of this present, rotten, system.

The Electromagnetic Platform
Everywhere you look in the biosphere and the lithosphere, new, more highly organized states of space, or platforms are being created. Why would it be any different for mankind? Here we examine billions of years of geological history, specifically the biosphere's role in engineering the vast amounts of cosmic and solar radiation into a habitable planet.

Single-Celled Creativity, March 28, 2011
Creativity is manifest everywhere in our universe, even at what seem to be the extremes: whether at the galactic or extragalactic extreme whose activity has coincided with evolutionary upshifts on earth, or at the level of the single celled organisms which they produced. It is an inescapable and undeniable fact, no matter where you look.

Extraterrestrial Imperative Part 3, March 23, 2011
The latest installment of the Extraterrestrial Imperative looks at physical economic platforms and addresses questions which must be answered if we are indeed to colonize near space. For further reference, see the LPAC article: "Onward to Mars: The Triumph of the Weak Forces."

What is Life? A Non-Particle View, March 21, 2011
Can life be reduced to nothing more than an interesting arrangement of atoms and molecules? No.

The Rim of Fire, March 15, 2011
The Japanese Earthquake must serve as a wake-up call for mankind. We are behind in our scientific understanding of the Universe, specifically the relationship between our Earth, our active Sun, and our galaxy.

Update on the Rim of Fire: Earthquake Warning, March 19, 2011
Peter Martinson (LPAC Basement Research Team) and Natalie Lovegren (LPACTV) discuss recent earthquake forecasts for the immediate period in the Pacific Rim of Fire: Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia, and California, U.S.

Economic Science: 4 Billion BC to 2011, March 9, 2011
Basement Team member, Sky Shields, delivered the following presentation to the March 5th NAWAPA Conference in Houston, TX. Concepts of LaRouche's science of physical economy and the fight to implement Glass-Steagall and NAWAPA are demonstrated as inseparable from the ongoing upward evolution of planet Earth.

Extended Sensorium: Life & Cosmic Rays, April 11, 2011
In January, The LPAC Basement published the Extended Sensorium report. Here we present a discussion with some of the authors of the report, reflecting the ongoing research into cosmic radiation and the principle of life as a universal principle. The implications of this research for the future of science is discussed, with an emphasis on research into earthquake predictability systems.

A New Quantum Physics: Rejecting Zeus - May 1, 2011
Even as an alarming, increasing density of seismic, economic, and political events buffet us, experts in all fields insist that the world around us cannot be understood! Jason Ross presents the explicitly anti-Promethean outlook of quantum mechanics, as a case study of the attack on the human mind, which declares that the universe we live in is fundamentally incomprehensible. Just as quantum mechanics maintains that statistics trumps reason, so too do anti-human earthquake science deniers insist that earthquakes cannot be predicted.

The Ecology of Anti-Entropy
Sept. 17, 2011
Life expresses creativity, though in a unique way. Whereas man's creativity is willful, the advance of life is seen through the process of evolution, where new organisms, within new systems of life with higher rates of energy-flux-density emerge, and those that can't keep up with the new, more energetic system go extinct.

Demanding Mind

We take up James Dwight Dana's elaboration of the concept of cephalization, its expression in the evolution of the nervous system and general physiology, and its significance for understanding the nature of mind and thus the universe.

Cody Jones: Tuning the Universe For Man
How does Man interact with the domain of cosmic radiation and the extended electromagnetic spectrum, and how might he tune these processes to the benefit of Man's further creative development? Basement Team researcher Cody Jones investigates the extended electromagnetic spectrum and its relationship to life in the evolution of the cosmos.

Basement Discussion: Evolution of Cosmic Radiation
Today's discussion focuses on evolution and viruses from the standpoint of cosmic radiation. Are viruses particles? Do particles exist?

The Science of Economics
September 27th, 2011
At a Sept 24, 2011 LPAC meeting in Philadelphia, Jason Ross presented the key concept of economics: measuring value as qualitative changes in power, rather than money. Using concepts from Bernhard Riemann's work, the continuity lying behind the series of evolutionary advancements in man's economic power, is sketched out using Riemann's work on Abelian functions. Stay tuned for a more in-depth feature video.

Riemann II: Potential and Metaphor
October 17th, 2011
What gets wetter the more it dries? Riddles can help illustrate an important concept for economics and science: the use of metaphor to convey ideas that cannot be stated explicitly. Here, Riemann's use potential theory and Dirichlet's Principle clarify the role of metaphor in language, and the nature of discoveries. Part 2 is coming very soon, which will take up Abelian functions and economic discontinuities. Stay tuned!

Riemann II(b): Abelian Functions
October 22nd, 2011
The Apollo mission was estimated to have had a $14 return for every $1 invested. But were they the same dollars? The incommensurable jumps in economics defy normal accounting methods, and Riemann's work on Abelian functions provide an insight into how such leaps can be conceptualized as the substance of economy, rather than as exceptions. This is a difficult topic -- questions and comments are welcomed below.

Riemann: A Discussion
October 27th, 2011
Basement research team members Oyang Teng and Jason Ross engage in a discussion about Jason's two recent videos (1, 2) on Riemann, covering such topics as Dirichlet's principle, metaphor, epistemology, and existence demonstrations.

Basement Mail Bag: On Metaphor
In this installment of the Basement Mail Bag, host Ed Hamler and Basement member Jason Ross answer questions that were e-mailed from our national and international audience. This week features questions based on Ross' two latest videos Riemann II(a): Potential and Metaphor and Riemann II(b): Abelian Functions, on the important role that metaphor plays in illustrating concepts of science and economics.

Kepler 22-B
Is life really limited to some "Goldilocks Zone"? The recent discovery of Kepler 22-B, a planet some think may harbor life based on its situation inside of the "habitable zone," should rather be looked at from the standpoint of the discussion in Lyndon LaRouche's recent reports, such as The End of World Wars.

Economic Value: A Return to ‘Future’
Economic value depends on context: only with a clear understanding of a viable future goal can present economic activity be valued. Just as there are no physical properties of substances or particles themselves, so too is economic value not found in the object or job itself: it is found in its contribution to the future. The implications of this for the practice of physics and the paradoxes of quantum mechanics are explored.
