Once the planets formed and were in orbit about the Sun, there was no reason for them not to stay there

Intelligent remains distant
T serves column philosopher delights

T has shaped the new faith - or doubt - this magazine, now published in a column of Annex and has developed a kind of thinking of the overall presentation.

Intellectual face, which investigates the world outside of himself and make it dead ends maze. He analyzed the logic of the incisive, witty and often humorous without making too large a number to itself, and on secure convictions. He's not a man secure convictions, but to live with the times and the doubter paradoxes virtuoso.

N teknologisoituneen review the paradoxes of the world and to demonstrate a precise eye for its internal conflicts and monimielisyyksille. The long run, begins to feel that he has a special preference for the absurd. All turns to impossible (with the exception that the prohibitions may become impossible if any). Here are a few examples:

Equality in relation to the main obstacles to gender equality is itself.

Values always creates a vacuum.

Individual ownership means that all the individual selections are allowed.

Human rights will lead to a war of all against all.

Love Marriage, which released the power of forced arranged marriages, the spouses has led to forced under the yoke of love.

Most interesting is to recognize honesty dishonesty.

In many of these uhmaväitteissä is true, even though in real life, of course, things are even more complex. This is because the real life consists of endless special cases.

But this is only common sense to the argument for thinking, who wants more than anything to abstract and to prove that common sense is really idiotiaa. That's right: in the traditional sense idiotia is just a private and particular thought, disregard for the common abstraction.

When you know the life

difficult, thinking it will become easier - provided that eläjän manages to stand the necessary distance from the head to think. N's insights into the pleasure lies in this ease. Although it is deceptive, in two ways.

First, in the sense that such ease of achieving the MDGs requires harjaannusta. The author must have had to make an effort to learn how to light the pipe from the fire, which someone else is a philosopher before him, sat down and burnt.

Philosophers have often masochists who tortures themselves as problems, and enjoy it. N part of the philosopher of pleasure for us to move without being in front of it we have to torture ourselves. It is no small achievement.

Second, bring ease is deceptive, because it disguises the distance to which each liippaa close. So safe and hassle-free as it is regarded as the modern world and the pitfalls of conflicts of critical distance from the guarantee, the company says the difficulty of indirectly also to answer the question: how to live?

Maybe it is not able to answer, but would have to say, offer examples. But the issue will be the weight to what the confusing picture of the world painted.

N does not want to offer constructive suggestions (which according to the logic of his soon turn disastrous), and life skills to write the manual (which can take the life of all the juice). But it does not mean that he should be their own "inalienable" approach to the question of life. It is psychoanalysis.

Psychoanalysis is a

created for a man who is fond of contradictions and does not want to leave all the contradictions of the world alone. Psychoanalysis is a rational way to talk about the things that make sense are fleeing. And the best part: the closer to the modern unbeliever hardly get a religion, which before made life much simpler for doubters.

It probably has its roots in psychoanalysis in the world, in which the individual lived continuously in conflict with the external standard and authoritarian systems, which brings an individual joined in a conflict.

N himself describes the contemporary situation of the individual originally different way: they reach a deductible individual autonomy and no longer know anyone would for their actions, against what would violate, any commitment. It follows that the fashionable neuroses have become a major depression.

Before the Castle of the Neva was a thinker, it was easy to say intellectual bourgeois and proletarian worker conflict and commit to it. But if the new technology of capitalism is a contradiction between the haves and marginalized, is not as easy to commit to displaced - syrjäytymättä itself. Success stories have to criticize, but aside for retirement violates intellectual against the definition.

Intelligent writer T part in keeping a good distance into this world, but maybe he does not age probably be satisfied with the role of observer, but we can continue to read, how he revealed the paradoxes of psychoanalysis, and found a way out of its impasse.

Pig iron, Ibn Khaldun and the culture of decadence
Pig iron is again a huge success, writing in Finnish culture, morality and the loss of degeneration:

Pig iron is asking hedonistic - empty of religion - the strength of society and is responsible for calling:

how strong is a vacuum in fundamentalist religion, fanatical and intolerant religion?

... intolerance always crush tolerance, if not for intolerance to violent resistance. Only then, when that aggressive intolerance is rebuffed, it can be pehmittämään and korruptoimaan tolerate a conservative manner. Before that - before the fight against a non-profit - are the only companies to tolerance doomed to failure ...

Pig iron settles, therefore, clear side of tolerance and intolerance is at least a little hopeful that armed struggle can be successful.

The question, of course, is where tolerance may be the force by which it defends itself against intolerance. Is at least some degree of intolerance of internal (Barbara), a necessary condition for the external defense of intolerance towards the battle to succeed? Takkirautakin is pessimistic - the last resort is once again Pohjanmaa and / or Laestadianism:

Theory of iron coat reminds rich 1300-century arabisosiologin Ibn Khaldunin theory, which I wrote over a year ago. Both example comes from the same time and location - 1000 Century Early harvests in Spain and North Africa.

The only difference is that it might be regarded as Ibn Khaldun intolerant profit rel inevitable. Ryhmäkoheesioon intolerance, combined with a high tolerance on the one hand and on the other hand, combined with the low ryhmäkoheesioon vary Ibn Khaldunin theory as an upturn and downturn in the economy.

To quote wikipedia articles Ibn Khaldunin theory of free inverse:

Cohesion arises spontaneously in small family-based groups - to strengthen and religious ideology. Khaldunin analysis to explain how group cohesion takes to power but contains the same type (physical, psychological, sociological, economic and political), seed decay, which leads the group to replace the second group.


Community becomes a great civilization, but the amount of decay in the following days and ryhmäkoheesion fall season. It follows that the new group, which deteriorated over the civilization areas have been virtually barbaariryhmä which is a lower level of civilization than the previous group. Barbaariryhmän asabiyah [ryhmäkoheesio] is also stronger than the previous group asabiyah. When the barbarians strengthen their power, however, they begin to be interested in of civilization sophisticated features such as literacy and art, and puts them into their own culture. Slowly begin the process and following the barbarians invading civilization.

Personally, I have the same line with Ibn Khaldūnin - tolerance (low ryhmäkoheesion) and intolerance (high ryhmäkoheesion) variation is virtually inevitable. Pytyy process jarrruttamaan maybe a little but will not change.

For example, hedonistic barbarians destroyed the Roman invasion took the result of a long period of internal "barbarism" - the beginning of fundamentalism - thanks.

Well maybe this is ultimately no conflict

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not. --Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

Strange twists on our spinning planet
Earth’s spin has an effect on your weight and your watch
- Spring is springing in the Northern Hemisphere. Fall is falling in the south — all because of Earth’s tilt and orbit. We often take our planet’s spin for granted, but some of the more peculiar side effects just might make your head spin, too.

How Mars lost its atmosphere.

Zahnle K; Workshop on the Evolution of the Martian Atmosphere (1992 Jun 29-Jul 1 : Kona, HI).
Pap Present Workshop Evol Martian Atmos. 1992; 29-30.

NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA 94035, USA.

Mars is a small planet with a thin atmosphere. That Mars is small has been known for centuries, and we have gotten used to it; but its thin atmosphere has been called "one of the great disappointments of the space age", and we have not gotten used to this. The apparent dearth of volatiles is not confined to one or two key elements, but may well apply to all plausible atmospheric constituents. It is surest for the noble gases, for which alternative reservoirs larger than the atmosphere are unlikely. It is less certain for water or CO2, which can be hidden in surface and subsurface reservoirs. There is a widespread suspicion that Mars's thin atmosphere is in some way attributable to the planet's size. Three more or less complementary hypotheses have been suggested. The current favorite is that Mars, being small, cooled relatively quickly, and long ago ceased to recycle volatiles effectively. Weathering reactions of water, CO2, and rock would then have progressively and irreversibly consumed the atmosphere. This modern incarnation of Lowell's "dying planet" applies to CO2 and water in particular; it is more problematic for nitrogen, and it is very hard to see how it could apply to the noble gases. Another possibility is that the atmosphere was never degassed or outgassed in the first place. Although inefficient outgassing of modern Mars is a reasonable hypothesis, and fully consistent with the great antiquity of its few volcanos and the low absolute abundance of 40Ar compared to Earth, inefficient outgassing of ancient Mars is less appealing, and is contradicted by the relatively high abundance of 129Xe in the martian atmosphere. I prefer escape. Hydrodynamic escape (vigorous thermal escape) and impact erosion (expulsion of atmosphere by impacts) are two processes that should have been operative early. Although in principle hydrodynamic escape could have shrunk Mars's atmosphere a hundredfold while leaving the composition of the remnant atmosphere nearly unaltered, very high escape fluxes are required. The implicated escape mechanism must have been efficient, nearly non-fractionating, and vastly more potent for Mars than for Earth or Venus. Impact erosion is an appealing candidate. Noble gases are the obvious first test. Noble gases are the most volatile elements and so are the most likely to have been affected by impact erosion and the easiest to address quantitatively. Xenon in particular imposes three constraints on how Mars lost its atmosphere: (i) the very low abundance of nonradiogenic Xe compared to Earth, Venus, and likely meteoritic sources; (ii) its nonradiogenic isotopes distinct from likely meteoritic sources; and (iii) the relatively high absolute abundance of radiogenic 129Xe, daughter of the extinct radionuclide 129I (half-life 17 Myr). In impact erosion the first two become constraints on the composition, mass distribution, and orbital elements of the impactors. The third requires that Mars lost its nonradiogenic Xe early, probably before it was 100 Myr old. Impact erosion can explain Mars by any of three stories. (i) Mars is unlikely. In a sort of planetary brinkmanship, impact erosion almost removed the entire atmosphere but was arrested just in time. (ii) Martian noble gases are cometary and cometary Xe is as isotopically mass fractionated as martian and terrestrial Xe. This is most easily accomplished if a relatively thick geochemically controlled CO2 atmosphere protected trace atmophiles against escape. (iii) Mars was indeed stripped of its early atmospheres but a small remnant was safely stored in the regolith, later released as a byproduct of water mobilization.
