Culpa Innata
Culpa Innata is a well written, imaginative and realistic dystopian novel set in the future and taking place in Eastern Europe. It paints a picture of what a New World Order might look like following a great economic meltdown, worldwide riots, globalisation and some affluent trillionaires buying the worldwide debt to introduce a new system in their own vision, a vision where mega-corporations control the world.

In Culpa Innata the world is separated into two: the mighty World Union, a free trade area encompassing all the Western World including South America, Japan and Eastern Europe, and the independent Rogue Nation States like Russia, China and India. Continue reading

The Crisis in Cosmology

Today’s crisis in Cosmology is perhaps best demonstrated by an apparently accelerating expansion of the universe where a ‘Dark Energy’ must be postulated to justify this extraordinary acceleration apart — an energy that itself defies both explanation and the Law of Conservation of Energy.

Ace of Spades (Motorhead)

When you hear people in America talking about some great import band that only they seem to know anything about, and for which they bought everything they could back then in the 80s, including large posters, bootlegs and obscure EPs, spending a fortune on this but feeling great about it… well that was me 25 years ago, my very own great indie band called The Sisters of Mercy. And they’re not dead, they’re still touring. I just came back tonight from seeing them live in Camden London, and they have a full new album they only play live and that might never see the light of day. The usual story, the nightmare of those record companies.

Gravity Breakthrough: Springing into a Gravitational Revolution By Roland Michel Tremblay

Gravity is one of the most familiar everyday phenomena, yet it has mystified scientists and laymen for centuries. Even today, although the current official position on gravity is a continual “space-time warping” around objects – a claim from Einstein’s General Relativity theory, it is also still widely considered an endless attracting force emanating from objects, as claimed in Newton’s gravitational theory. Setting aside the troubling implications of two different physical descriptions of gravity in our science for the moment, it turns out that the behavior of a simple spring may hold the final answer to this age-old mystery.

The 74 year old Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar, a wealthy man and former chairman of Egypt’s Bank of Alexandria, was arrested on May 31 under sexual assault charges involving a New York hotel maid. The charges and circumstances are practically identical to the 62 year old Dominique Strauss-Kahn alleged offences. DSK was arrested in New York on May 14 for sexually assaulting a New York Hotel maid, leading to his resignation from the head of the International Monetary Fund and ending his chances to become France’s president next year against Nicolas Sarkozy.

IMF Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s charges: the French believe it’s a plot By Roland Michel Tremblay

Le Monde confirmed in a poll conducted by CSA that for 57% of the French population, Strauss-Kahn is the victim of a plot. Reviewing the French Press reveals that most of the mass media in France published articles of main political figures, including political rivals, stating that they do not believe the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn are genuine. In the meantime the career of the Chief of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and potential future French President, who was favourable to the people instead of global corporations, is over. Unless somehow the belief of his innocence could be turned to his advantage, even if found guilty by forged evidence. A crucial mistake perhaps, the French simply don’t think like Americans, anything is possible. Here is a review of the most substantial articles in the French Press.

Interstellar space-travel and near-instant communication; discovering a network of intelligent extraterrestrial signals; harnessing the mysterious instantaneous quantum-entanglement effect. These are all either science fiction or things we will probably never live to see or understand, correct? Not at all. By the end of this article you will see how clarifying a simple but extremely fundamental misunderstanding in our science legacy makes all of this a viable reality – now. Continue reading

As a Court Clerk in a criminal court, most cases just leave me totally
indifferent. You could easily think I have lost my heart about such things a
few years ago, incapable to feel anything now either for the defendants or
their victims. True, I admit it. When you see it every day, the same sort of
cases one after the other, you quickly become insensitive to it all. But not
this time.

Even when they all cry their soul out, whether they are faking it or not.
Beware of the crocodile tears, and then it seems, it is always just that,
crocodile tears. If I can’t feel the need to cry most of the time, then it
must be fake all the time, I’m usually so emotional.

It took me two years to finally send this article, I was afraid, afraid of
the police and other authorities. It is now official, the Police no longer
need a warrant to enter your home and look through your things, hoping to
find something to incriminate you. I am a living proof of it, twice over,
living in the United Kingdom no less.

Never would have I expected this from such a country. There you are, they
found nothing, there was nothing to be found, and yet, we have found
something. Something serious, critical, significant. This is the end, the
beginning of a new way of life, an all powerful Police State against which
we are all powerless. It has begun. and it happened to me not once, but
twice in the last two years, our worst fears have materialised.

I couldn’t care less for JFK, apart from the fact that he is now but an international airport. I only care to see how many died talking about his death, over 40 now at the last count, and I wonder, deep down, if I will be shot for writing this article. The powers that be certainly do not kid around when it comes to JFK, they kill you outright even today. Let’s test it then, I don’t care dying an accidental death.

It so happens, and I cannot describe this as anything else but a coincidence, or destiny, I don’t know, my best friend was the lover of Lee Harvey Oswald, the so-called killer of JFK. It didn’t matter to me, I didn’t know, what did that have to do with JFK? The man died way before I was even born, nearly 50 years ago, and this is all American stuff, I’m not American, I’m Canadian. Let the Americans sort themselves out, I thought. Not so easy when your best friend was right in the middle of it, and is about to publish the greatest bestseller ever on JFK’s death. Dear me, I thought, I will have to read the book and write an article about it. After all, this kind of journalism is rare these days when freedom of speech is all but nonexistent.

Final_Theory_Book_Cover

On 4 March 2010, New Scientist magazine published an article entitled “Knowing the mind of God: Seven theories of everything“, where Michael Marshall reviewed the most promising candidates for the Theory of Everything, the Holy Grail of theoretical physics. So, what does this report card have to say – is our search for this ultimate scientific understanding going well?

One of the most striking revelations of this article is that all of the profiled candidates are quite different from each other, demonstrating that there is still no fundamental physical or theoretical agreement on the operation of our universe. Each theory is a favorite of one of a number of disparate camps within the scientific community, and each still falls under the general umbrella of our known scientific paradigm, or Standard Theory.

In science fiction there is a specific category of books called alternate history where you simply travel into the past and suddenly change history. What if you could travel to 1754 just before the French and Indian War in America with a modern army of the future, and decided to build a new world order? Would you stop the Seven Years’ War that started in 1756? Where would you begin, how would you go about it?

These could sound like strange questions but this is precisely what many science fiction authors must deal with, they have to think of ways of changing history for the better. Like stopping wars through wars or demonstration of power in order to build a new world order. I am writing such a novel right now and it is not as easy as that. Because suddenly my small town in Quebec from the year 2039 is sent to 1754, becoming instantly the most fearsome power in the world (don’t worry, Celine Dion remained safely in 2039, she was in Las Vegas when it happened).

I’m not talking about religious fanatics, extreme right republicans or conservatives, suicide bombers, who will destroy all that we stand for. There are other extremists we need to fight against. They are brainless, you could not hope to make them understand reason, they’re a real threat. There’s a need to fight these extremists fighting against cruelty for children, animals and the environment. They’ve crossed the line, they’ve gone too far, they’ve become huge bureaucracies, they’re totally out of their mind.

At the end of my last article about the future of humankind as either being a Utopia or an Idiocracy, I stated that if we do not in parallel of those who are in power build our own institutions for humankind, we will never even get a glimpse of what this world could truly be like. It got me thinking about creating a global nonprofit corporation, the ultimate cooperative.

First of all the idea in not new, there are many cooperatives of all sorts in this world, with many hard thinkers who established the philosophy of it all in the first place, it is a wonder they never proliferated as one would think they should have. I invite you to follow this link on Wikipedia and from there follow the many links:

By some coincidence in the last three days I read Men Like Gods of H. G. Wells and watch the films Idiocracy, City of Ember and WALL-E. They all deal with humankind’s future, a very bleak future that could possibly become the ultimate Utopia or perfect world, not before another world war, the extinction of humanity, and survival of a few humans to come back to Earth from space, or emerging from underground to start anew. Is this what we can expect of our future, imminent self-destruction?

Should we be planning colonies and ship them into space or below ground, like, right now? Is it because we feel the end of humanity is fast becoming, that we are far reaching the end of all our broken institutions, that suddenly the topic of our future, or lack of it, is so pro-eminently featured even in children’s films? The topic is not new, H. G. Wells’ discourse in Men Like Gods is so up to date with what is happening today, even though it was written in 1923, that one must believe nothing has changed socially and politically for the last 100 years.
