Jason Ross illustrates the fight between the view of Zeus versus Promethean Man using examples from history, science, and the arts-- it is expressed from Plato versus Aristotle, to Gödel versus Dawkins.
Welcome to the Basement Page! Please take some time to explore. To the upper right, you will see a toolbar to help you navigate through the three main sections of the page: the Basement Forum, the main Basement Media page, and the Basement Reports page. You can also subscribe to our RSS feed, to keep up with the latest discussions. A new feature we've added is at the lower right, the collection of "Pedagogy Packages." These are guided tours through hand-chosen material, designed to help you understand a specific subject area.
Kepler's Harmony of the World
The second edition of a complete pedagogical work-through of Johannes Kepler's magnum opus, Harmonices Mundi. The purpose of the release today, by the LaRouche PAC, of a second edition exposition of Kepler's crucial work, is to provide the necessary educational tools for students, scientists and policy-makers alike to have access at this crucial moment to what is probably the most explicit and accessible presentation of a competent basis in modern scientific method available.
The Riemann Project
The report you are about to experience was produced to make clear why LaRouche refers to his economic forecasting methodology as the “LaRouche-Riemann Method.” In doing so, we’ll explore the central feature of economics: our characteristic activity, as a species, is built upon mankind’s willful implementation of creative discoveries which re-define our relationship to the universe around us.
Planetary Defense: An Extraterrestrial Imperative
by Ben Deniston, Liona Fan-Chiang, Peter Martinson, Meghan Rouillard, Sky Shields, Oyang Teng
Do we really have a choice of whether we want to progress or not? Does the universe ever stand still, waiting for us to make that decision? As the dinosaurs witnessed, the answer is no. Past and future threats to human lives, including extreme weather events, CME's, earthquakes, asteroids and more, show us that the ultimate defense in a developing and inherently creative universe is progress. What is presented in this policy paper is the ultimate war avoidance strategy.
Self-Developing Systems and Arctic Development: Economics for the Future of Mankind
by Michelle Fuchs and Sky Shields
Progress is not defined by a linear or arbitrary amount of increase of "wealth" or capability. As nature has shown us, all human activity must be driven by challenges to the frontiers of human knowledge, and must always aim toward achieving higher energy-flux density platforms. Study a detailed demonstration of the measurement of energy-flux density here and redefine any nominal study of economics thereby!
