"Very high probabilities that theorems are true" are fallacious

David B. sent me a recent article by Mussardo and LeClair that uses the Mertens function i.e. the cummulative sum of the Möbius function to produce a statistical argument in favor of the Riemann Hypothesis. It's interesting but at the end, I believe that we already have lots of these incomplete "statistical arguments in favor of the Riemann Hypothesis". They have actually existed for centuries; most mathematicians have believed that the hypothesis was true and the "circumstantial evidence" was always an important reason of that belief.



Yes, this article hugely overlaps with \(P=NP\) is conceivable; there is no partial evidence in purely discrete mathematics (2014). See other blog posts that mention probabilities and Riemann or \(P\), \(NP\), proofs.

Fine, I have spent hundreds of hours with the Riemann Hypothesis in my life. Almost all my attacks on the problem were naturally thinking of "physical systems" where a function related to the Riemann zeta function was a partition sum or something similar. Some of them were just quantum mechanical problems of particles on some graphs (with line intervals whose lengths was related to primes), some of them had creation and annihilation operators for primes, the most sophisticated ones involved the tachyon minimum in string field theory or \(p\)-adic string theory.

Farcical pseudoscience of the new South African variant

Omicron is a dumb story designed to bring the Coronazi ultramorons' hysteria to an even higher level

In the morning, I needed some 10 minutes to find out why the stock futures are collapsing today. Yes, when the movements are sharp, there is usually a single explanation (while the attributions of smaller, noise-like movements are usually fuzzy fairy-tales) and today it is

A new Covid-19 variant could show immune evasion and enhanced transmissibility, South African scientists warn (CNN)
Oh I see. So some African "scientists" have found a new genetic code of a SARS-CoV-2 descendant and called it the B.1.1.529 variant, also called "omicron" by the WHO or "nu" by others or (by the nutty Belgian PM) Covid-21. It has the highest number of mutations and maybe, perhaps, it will not only be more transmissible but also evade the immune system and other things. Millions of people clearly buy the garbage "science" news every day and today, this stuff is apparently enough to subtract 4% from DAX (the German index) while the Prague Index only lost 1.67% at the end (thank God, a lukewarm version of the psychopathy is here); some of the drop is "justifiable" by the fact that politicians are discussing new travel bans and similar things again (VIX, the index of fear, goes up damn 46%). How totally braindead do you have to become to buy something like that and react in this way? I am absolutely shocked by the sheer stupidity of so many people.



Botswana

In fact, everyone who believes any alarmism sold as "science" is a completely braindead pile of šit. There has never been a single prediction made by these alarmist scientists that turned out to be accurate and useful. Instead, virtually every single meme that these "scientists" (which are not scientists in the proper sense) have ever produced to get their dirty money has been deeply harmful for our societies because almost all of them have pushed millions of people to behave completely irrationally.

Václav Klaus's answers to questions posed by the server iUhli.cz (iCoal)

Interview with the Czech ex-president

One of the main topics of today is the Brussels plan for a rapid comprehensive transformation of the EU member states, called the Green Deal (or the Green Destiny in Czechia). It has its supporters and opponents. Which group do you belong to?

I am, of course, a total opponent of the Green Deal. One thing is the reason for the aggressive and destructive fight against global warming and CO2 emissions, the other is the EU's own plan to "green" [verb] Europe, the European economy and to create carbon neutrality in Europe, and presenting it as a way to make the European economy more efficient. The opposite is true. I have been actively involved in these issues – writing and lecturing – for at least 15 years, and passively, that is to say, with marginal comments, for three decades. It's the same "song and dance", the arguments on both sides remain the same. I already saw the "end of the world" in the formation of the Club of Rome in the late 60s and early 70s.

The United States is falling apart

The United States is in danger of chaos and possibly totalitarianism, then a new state will emerge
An interview with Erik Best, a US journalist based in Prague since Feb 1991 (CZ audio)

Host Martina Kociánová: The rapid transformation of society throughout the Western world. This statement could be used to introduce many episodes of our interviews with various experts, scientists, analysts. What is happening? How come so fast? How is the world changing? Where is it heading? Where are the changes coming from, and what can we do about it? These are the most common questions that you, our listeners, and we are equally interested in, and that we always try to ask as well. The answers, of course, often raise concerns, because they usually say nothing about a beautiful bright future in which we will all lovingly hold hands and walk with a happy song towards a sunny horizon. That is how the future is portrayed by ideologues, not by people with their feet on the ground, and perhaps that is why so many people fall for ideologies. Maybe they want to believe the dream because it's more pleasant than facing an increasingly difficult reality. It is about ideologies that we are going to talk today, and how they are gradually metastasizing into our lives, but of course not only about them. For example, we will look at the United States through the eyes of a journalist from America who has lived here for 30 years. I'm going to be talking with my colleague, journalist, commentator, analyst, Erik Best.

Responding to a bunch of Coronazi demagogies

I just saw a very disappointing article written by a person whom I believed to know better. Except for the disappointment, it doesn't seem to matter who wrote it because the fans of Covid fascism seem to parrot the lies (and all the blackmail and insults) they heard from their comrades virtually verbatim. The title says

Everyone has the right to have his opinions but not his facts.
This slogan is not new, it has been popular among the extreme leftists for many years. The problem is that people don't agree what are "facts", either. Another problem is that almost all the "facts" spread by the Covid fascists are lies; and it is mostly the opponents of Covid fascism who mostly (but not always) reproduce the actual facts in their reality. At any rate, people have often disagreed what were the facts and this is why civilized societies of the democratic type have always allowed the freedom of thought and therefore "many possible truths". The truth is the first casualty of war, in this case a war that the Covid fascists wage on the not too harmful virus and especially on everyone who doesn't worship that virus. Covid demagogues suddenly think that they have the right to impose their "truth" on everyone else, including people who know vastly more about viruses than they do.

Czech crown billionaire-mathematician becomes an unlikely hero of anti-Coronazi resistance

A decade ago, billionaire Andrej Babiš created a movement that turned him into a top Czech government politician for many years. The era will end next month. His ANO (=YES) movement was originally all about "his fight against corruption" and populist claims that corruption was omnipresent. One of the folks who were indirectly helping him was another rich dude, Karel Janeček (net worth: $150 mil), who was born a few months before me and who is also an alumnus of the Math-Phys Dpt of the Charles University. (I say indirectly which means "by provoking the anti-corruption hysteria"; Janeček hasn't ever directly worked for Babiš.)


Janeček previously became rich through some clever playing in Las Vegas (first million); and especially through algorithmic trading. He was capable of greatly extending the initial capital from his business partner Václav Dejčmar (who earned some millions from the early Czech Facebooks of the 1990s). Both are philanthropists and sponsors of science, among other things. I have known VD in person, much more than KJ, already from some discussion servers in the mid 1990s. I have met Janeček as well, in the case of KJ only during a dinner in their Field Restaurant in Prague (which just defended its Michelin star; the chef is Radim Kašpárek; it is located in the restaurant with many clocks in Best Offer, a movie).

President Klaus' speech on 17 November was timeless

...highlighting the importance and bravery of students during the events of 1939 and 1989...
By Ivo Strejček, IVK

On the festive day of 17 November 2021, there was only one prepared, thoughtful and serious political speech. It was delivered by President Václav Klaus at the memorial site in front of Hlávka College. This seems to be the only possible place to reflect on the meaning and legacy of 17 November 1939 and 1989 and to use this opportunity to reflect on the connections between these important milestones in modern Czech history and today. Performances with similar political speeches are no longer allowed on the National Avenue that was turned hysterical by the "truth and love warriors" [Czech SJWs named after Václav Havel's appealing but cheesy quote, "the truth and love must defeat the lies and hatred"].

Václav Klaus delivered a statesmanlike and inspiring speech to the high representatives of Czech academia and their students. It is not his fault that the reporter present (or a news editor?) narrowed the content of the speech to a shortened excerpt from his extensive speech to the sentence that "communism was not defeated by students or dissidents", only to have this shortcut subsequently taken up by the rest of the media. This is such a gross and purposeful misrepresentation of the content of the speech (which was subsequently used by all those who take every possible opportunity to smear Václav Klaus) that such journalistic sloppiness cannot go unnoticed.

Other people's inner consciousness is scientifically meaningless for you

...but that doesn't mean that the laws of Nature may be applied without a conscious entity...

Feedly.com threw a text by Sean Carroll at me. He argued in favor of "physicalism" (we live in a P-world where everything follows from consciousness-independent, objectively applied laws of physics) and against "panpsychism" (we live in the Ψ-world where the existence and omnipresence of consciousness is essential for things to work).



Carroll claims that we must live in the P-world because he mentally lives in the world where physical phenomena are described by classical physics.

But as the letter Ψ (Psi) and its well-known affiliation with quantum mechanics makes more than clear, the correct laws of Nature have been known for 96 years to be quantum mechanical i.e. dependent on the observer's consciousness. For quantum mechanical laws to be applied, one needs to insert the information about the results of observations which may be translated to the initial state. For the results of the observations to be well-defined, the observations themselves must be well-defined and the choice "what has been observed" is clearly subjective i.e. dependent on the observer's subjective choices.

Novelties of the non-existent Fall 2021 Covid wave in Europe

The Euromomo charts of the total deaths speaking a clear language.



Covid-19 has caused an enhanced wave of dying in Spring 2020 that was about 100%-200% of the usual excesses in early 2017 and 2018; and another, grander wave of dying in Fall 2020 and Winter 2020-2021 that was some 300% of a usual addition to deaths from flu. Covid, a new flu-like disease, temporarily trumped flu but not "qualitatively".

In Fall 2021, there is clearly absolutely no statistically significant excess of deaths in Europe which is why it's possible for the end of the graph to show the below-the-normal deaths although the latest weeks may be updated soon (yellow). For some 20+ weeks, Czechia has exhibited below-the-normal total deaths in almost all the weeks (and tiny excesses in 2 exceptions), too.

Let's not let finance and banking turn green

Let's not make old mistakes
By former Czech President Klaus

In the early 1990s, I polemicised the use of completely misleading adjectives that usually denied rather than developed the following noun. It was a well-known battle in Europe, which had its main meaning in the German-speaking world, over the so-called soziale Marktwirtschaft (social market economy). The society (not only the economy!) of Germany and Austria was based on it in the second half of the 20th century. And it was to be ours too.



LM: I guess that my choice of this 1989 photo will raise Klaus' blood pressure (he was medically treated for that recently) but it's November 17th today. ;-)

But I and the people around me wanted to introduce a "market without adjectives" in our country. It goes without saying that society must also think socially (I did not deny this for a second, even though many did not and do not want to know), but I considered it necessary that the word "socially" should follow the word "market", not precede it.

Satoshi Nakamoto Florida trial

Willie Soon sent me this fresh article at the Daily Mail (see also Google News, Twitter) talking about an ongoing trial, Dave Kleiman's relatives vs Craig Wright, about the ownership of roughly 1.1 million Bitcoin ($65 billion by current near-record prices) which were mined in the first year of the Bitcoin.



Kleiman died some years ago. These two men clearly knew one another very well, they were friends for some time, Kleiman contributed to the decline of Wright's marriage, the relationship soured for other reasons as well. They had some contract to share those BTC 1 million. The question is whether both of them owned it. A technical "detail" that helps to clarify these things is the question whether Wright himself or Wright+Kleiman were the fathers of the Bitcoin, aka Satoshi Nakamoto. I have discussed this question since 2019 and sketched it already in 2015.

Those who lynch Kyle Rittenhouse are pure evil

I just spent some hours with the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. It is just incredible what many Americans, including (or especially) Americans with lots of influence, do these days. OK, what is going on?

In August 2020, there was a lot of crime on the streets of the U.S. cities. Police forces were being attacked and their activity was suppressed. Organized crime was ruling the streets of many cities, especially the "BLM" criminal organization. That was also the case in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where some anger and looting was "justified" by a (logical) death of a black criminal (sexual assault, was using knife against cops in the car). A 17-year-old dude Kyle Rittenhouse from Antioch, Illinois (an adjacent state) was just attending an event for cadets (policemen in training) in the Kenosha area. He had other emotional attachments to the place.

The absurdly pathetic "result" of COP26

Another summit of the climate psychopaths and their spineless collaborationists ended in Glasgow. The format was the same one that we remembered in dozens of previous summits: 30,000 parasites arrived by private jets and have bullšited about the evil of CO2 emissions for two weeks. The content of their talks was just nonsensical irrelevant gibberish, there was no agreement about anything, the talks had to go to overtime, like always, and some "result" was announced afterwards:

Nations including China and India agreed to say something about the "phaseout" of coal while all words that indicated some substance were deleted or softened to become completely ill-defined.
Even if some of these statements about the future were well-defined, it would still not imply that these statements will have anything to do with the truth. These statements are just would-be prophesies by idiots who think that they are about 1,000 times more important and powerful than they are.

I am sure you don't need to know anything else about this "event". Billions of dollars were wasted for another farce, the CO2 emissions created by these morons are obviously the least of the problems because there exists nothing such as a global problem with the climate, let alone one caused by CO2, and even if there were a problem, the subtraction of carbon dioxide's contribution, at most 0.01-0.02 °C, from the warming per year would clearly do nothing to avoid the problems. Do you really need to move 30,000 morons across the world and store them in hotels for 2 weeks if the only outcome is just another hateful remark about the fossil fuels which is completely detached from reality?

Larry Summers vs inflation deniers

Some media have concluded that Larry Summers has been vindicated and indeed, we can already say that the inflation wasn't "transitory" as way too many Western economists, including those at the Federal Reserve, have been saying for a very long time.

Summers – who explained his success by pointing out that the things are trivial for brilliant brains such as his and the other economists are just way too dumb aßholes (my quote isn't precise) – describes the ongoing inflation as "entrenched". Of course, it may accelerate further.

In the Bloomberg interview above, Summers said that it was easy to see that the inflation would be pretty big. Basic economic models were enough for that. Maybe he wrote it quantitatively but I haven't seen it yet. In reality, I often use my intuition and it is tempting to talk about "models" even though the predictions are pretty much just qualitative in nature. It is hard to make hard-precision predictions, especially at the beginning when it was still possible that there would also be a lasting decrease of the aggregate demand etc.

We face a choice between national sovereignty and European identity

Outgoing Czech Prime Minister's speech at the Core Europe conference: National Sovereignty or European Identity in the Integration of the European Union

On Friday, 12 November 2021, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš spoke via video greeting at the Flagship Europe conference: National Sovereignty or European Identity in the Integration of the European Union. The theme of the conference is the future of strategic autonomy and European federalism in the European Union.



Ladies and gentlemen,

I am delighted to open this conference entitled "Core Europe: National Sovereignty or European Identity?"

The title of your conference suggests that we are clearly faced with a choice between national sovereignty or European identity. However, I believe that this duality is not correct. Membership of the European Union should not present us with such a dilemma, but should, on the contrary, guarantee both. National sovereignty should be the foundation and the concept of European identity the roof of the European Union project. There should be an equal relationship between these two ideas – national sovereignty should support European identity and vice versa.

Can the University of Austin save the U.S. education?



A bunch of well-known public intellectuals, mostly "moderate Democrats", are trying to establish

The University of Austin:
dedicated to the fearless pursuit of truth.
See Google News. So far so good. I know some of the founders well, like Summers and Pinker. Others have been funny, like Boghossian who co-produced all the Sokal-style hoaxes. The description of the problem is clearly correct (although you may easily find psychopaths claiming that there is no problem with the freedom of thought at the U.S. universities today) and the goal is noble. But will the project lead to a fix of the fatal problem with the Academia?

Unitarity conditions for the (de Sitter) wave function of the Universe?

The Quanta Magazine's Charlie Wood wrote an interesting text

Laws of Logic Lead to New Restrictions on the Big Bang
It starts with a nice self-similar hypnotizing animation by Dave Whyte (who is not racist, just racyst) whose value will exceed the value of the text according to many viewers (not readers).



Escher's picture of the hyperbolic space was used as a plan to spread the bats' and Fauci's Sino-American Covid-19 virus among an exponentially growing number of bats and people.

OK, Wood starts by popularizing some basics about the hyperbolic spaces, de Sitter space, and unitarity. Similar popular articles seem to be written for many different groups of readers. Each of them may find something appropriate, like cartoons that are sometimes more exciting for the adults than their kids. But I am afraid that the people who need to be explained what unitarity is won't really appreciate the new scientific results.

Backlash against Covid fear porn campaign

Like most nations, Czechs are exposed to quite some amount of stupid and dishonest pro-vaxx commercials everywhere.

Billboards often promote vacations along with the vaccine, urging you to "make a period after [terminate] Covid" along with the whole nation (this "period" has been promised from Spring 2021 and it was a lie everywhere, wasn't it? A similarly heavily leaky vaccine can never change the course of an epidemic qualitatively!). The prime minister offered his stinky tennis shoes to someone who would agree to be vaccinated.

I am always trying to turn off radios when I hear one one of the pieces (which simply insult me and drive me up the wall by their stupidity, every time) but it hasn't prevented me from hearing some of them 30 times. Two examples:

Boy: Mom, we will travel to the sea for the long weekend again, won't we?
Mother: Well, I am not sure this time...
Boy: But we have been going every year.
Mother: But the water is too salty there and it has annoying waves on it.
Boy: Isn't the reason that we are not vaccinated?
Mother: Not at all (silently, emphasizing the untruth), and we need to take care of the neighbor's hamster, anyway!
Boy: Mom?
Natalia: I will have a huge graduation party, isn't it great?
Amalia: Well, parties are no longer fashionable, why won't we just be together, two of us.
Natalia: Have you lost your mind? There will be a PARTY! You must be afraid because you're not vaccinated right?
And similar stuff. I included these two because they're the most frequent ones on the radio; and because they have some sense of humor. (Hamsters are more intelligent than the professors in other ads who say things like "the only bad vaccine is a vaccine that isn't emptied to someone's ass or a shoulder". Oh, really? Wouldn't you agree, Professor, that a similar judgement is really, really simple-minded?) They are complete lies, designed to intimidate, too. Of course, inside families and among friends, the anti-vaxx people flood their counterparties with lots of evidence:
Boy, Natalia: Shall we go to the sea or the party?
Mom, Amalia: We can't because the giant Covid assholes in the government have banned XYZ for the unvaccinated. We can't get vaccinated because 1) that would mean our support for this loss of freedom in our country, 2) it is dangerous for our cohorts to get vaccinated because of... myocarditis... dangerous interactions of natural antibodies and the proteins... The risks of the vaccination exceed the benefits.
It is common sense that almost everyone who hasn't been vaccinated by now has damn good reasons and is proud about his or her decision. The manipulative ads display bullying on steroids. They suggest that, just like the Jews in Germany around 1940, the unvaccinated people are under such pressure that they can no longer tell the truth to their kids or close friends. Sorry, we will never be under this kind of a pressure (thank God, I am personally under no pressure at all), unlike the Jews, we have lots of firearms, and if you try to change something about this fact, your life won't be safe. It is you, pro-vaxx fanatics and Covid hysterics, who should better shut up and walk through the sewerage system if you think that you have the moral right to leave your basement.

Natural supersymmetry pretty much predicts a \(125\GeV\) Higgs

At least with some extra assumptions about the incorporation to the string landscape

A very small blog post, mostly a linker-not-thinker one because others simply do not pass the cost-and-benefit analysis any longer.

First, I was sent an excerpt from a strange article, John Wheeler’s Desert Island: The conservatism of non-empirical physics, by Alexander Blum, a social scientist, because it mentioned me. The quote with my name is...

I can think of one crass example, which I would, however, be hesitant to generalize given the size of the string community: the string theorist Luboš Motl and his blog, tellingly entitled “The reference frame: supersymmetric world from a conservative viewpoint”...
You may find the whole paper somewhere but sorry, I am not interested in a copy.

Too bad, "non-empirical physics" is an oxymoron. If it ain't empirical, it is not physics. Physicists are leading empiricists and it is particularly the case of string theorists. It was obviously also the case of the fellow conservative John Archibald Wheeler who co-invented not only the heavily theoretical concepts such as the WdW equation, Wheeler-Feynman absorber theory, the term "black hole" (and "superspace", "wormhole", "it from bit")... but also the Breit-Wheeler process, S-matrix, and indeed, he co-built the first nuclear reactors! ;-)

Only brain-dead people believe the ludicrous propaganda that string theory and/or physicists of Wheeler's type are "non-empirical". While I don't know whether the article ends up saying that conservatives and/or Wheeler and/or your humble correspondent and/or string theorists as a group are good or bad, I have seen enough not to be interested in the rest.

With no excess of deaths for 18 weeks, Austria joins the hardcore Coronazi club

Hundreds of millions of people in the West have been totally and hopelessly brainwashed by the Covid propaganda and they seem unable to see even the most basic facts. Such as the fact that Western Europe has basically no medical problem with Covid-19 right now.

Austria has a new chancellor after Sebastian Kurz was removed (I believe it was a coup, the culprits are Soros-affiliated, and all of them deserve death). It just happened that soon after this removal, Austria has banned the entry of the unvaccinated people to restaurants, hotels, events with 25+ people, ski slopes, and more.



Is there a possible justification for these extraordinary measures? To see that the answer is a resounding No, just check the Graphs and Maps section of the Euromomo website dedicated to the excess (total) deaths in Europe. In the middle of the graphs-and-maps page, you may see the map. There is a slider that allows you to return to previous weeks.

Explosion of athletes' cardiovascular episodes is way above 5 sigma now

There are lots of people who have been trained to repeat the incredible lies about the safety of the Covid vaccines. The VAERS system in the U.S. has collected more complaints about the Covid vaccines than it has collected against all other vaccines in recent decades and it is similar in Europe.

Whoever wishes to look into the real world is seeing an incredible number of cardiovascular and neurological problems that follow the vaccination. Jiřina Bohdalová (90), Czechia's most celebrated female comedian, had huge problems after her "booster" jab.

But it is mainly the young people – and a great majority of them are young men – who display the serious cardiovascular symptoms that haven't been seen in the recorded history. Even when one restricts his attention to top-level professional athletes, the number of such sad events is already so high that it simply cannot be a statistical fluke.

Prime Minister Babiš's performance in Glasgow deserves praise and support

By Ivo Strejček

Against the backdrop of skyrocketing electricity, gas and fuel prices, the causes of which must be sought solely in irrational policies of "climate protection", the Green Deal and, as a consequence, the rapid increase in the price of emission allowances, yet another conference on the "apocalypse" is being held in Glasgow, which fails to perceive these problems of "ordinary" people. It is attended by – a whopping – 25,000 politicians, members of their entourages, environmental activists, eco-non-governmental organisations, militant "planet" campaigners, progressives of all kinds, snobs and delegations from "green" industry and multinational industrial giants. They all understand that political and business investment in "climate" is "green" and that it pays to profit from stirring up "fear for the planet".

Will the Bastille Group save the West from putrefaction?

Aggressive human crap is spreading across the West like fire and we are sort of defenseless and unprepared. I think that some international coalitions to save the Good Old West are needed, at least to optically change the "apparent balance of powers". Recently, I was increasingly thinking that France could be the next bigger ally that may act as a barrier of a sort.

The French public exerts a significant pressure on the French politicians for them to protect the country against the cancer of cancel culture and against new waves of mass immigration. France was betrayed by the Anglo-Saxon world and especially by Australia in the Anglo-Saxon submarine scam. And France is naturally the European Union's main proponent of the peaceful nuclear energy, a position that is under attack from the Germany-led Luddites.



You may check that the French-Visegrád relationships have been evolving along a complex trajectory. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire has arguably been the most readable person who wanted to build closer ties some five months ago.

Green suicide

Babiš criticised the European climate package in Glasgow
Czech Press Agency / Novinky.cz

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš criticised the European climate package known as Fit for 55 at the UN climate change conference COP 26 in Glasgow on Monday. He said the green deal could become European green suicide without a rational approach. [Full speech, video, in Czech.]



According to Babiš, it is first necessary to address whether the targets are too ambitious, how much money the transformation will cost and whether Europe and individual countries can afford it.
