Hugh--- Yet it is so well known in Judaism. Who was this ONE rabbi? Did his well known teaching impact on his disciples? Did some of his disciples become rabbis?
Because it's so sensational.

Secular and liberal Jews have nothing to do with such nonsense or with all the mumbo jumbo scriptural teachings and mindless practices.

Hugh---I am NOT a homophobe and I speak truthfully.

Joel---Your hatred of homosexuality derives from the irrational and unscientific teachings of the stone-age Tanach.
Hugh--- I speak the truth. I do not know whether or not I hate homosexuality but this is what I know. Homosexuality is wrong based on my cherished source of wisdom i.e. "the stone-age Tanach".
I also know that based on my own experience and observations it is ABNORMAL for people to be sexually attracted to the same sex.
The very words HOMOSEXUAL is PERVERTED and ABNORMAL.
Homo means SAME and PHOBIA means irrational FEAR. Combining the meanings we get SAME FEAR. What the hell is that? I believe that homophobia is perhaps the only word with phobia that makes no SENSE. Even if I am incorrect, the word homophobia is certainly ABNORMAL. Check it out.
You're as dumb as the scripture that preaches such nonsense about homosexuality.

Dr Fritjof Capra is a PhD in particle physics and a staunch proponent of systems' theory that he says parallels Eastern mysticism.

SHIVA'S COSMIC DANCE STATUE AT CERN & FRITJOF CAPRA:

On June 18, 2004, an unusual new landmark was unveiled at CERN, the European Center for Research in Particle Physics in Geneva — a 2m tall statue of the Indian deity Shiva Nataraja, the Lord of Dance. The statue, symbolizing Siva's cosmic dance of creation and destruction, was given to CERN by the Indian government to celebrate the research center's long association with India.

In choosing the image of Shiva Nataraja, the Indian government acknowledged the profound significance of the metaphor of Shiva's dance for the cosmic dance of subatomic particles, which is observed and analyzed by CERN's physicists.

The parallel between Shiva's dance and the dance of subatomic particles was first discussed by Fritjof Capra in an article titled "The Dance of Siva: The Hindu View of Matter in the Light of Modern Physics," published in Main Currents in Modern Thought in 1972. Shiva's cosmic dance then became a central metaphor in Capra's international best-seller The Tao of Physics, first published in 1975 and still in print in over 40 editions around the world.

A special plaque next to the Shiva statue at CERN explains the significance of the metaphor of Siva's cosmic dance with several quotations from The Tao of Physics.

Here is the text of the plaque:

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, seeing beyond the unsurpassed rhythm, beauty, power and grace of the Nataraja, once wrote of it "It is the clearest image of the activity of God which any art or religion can boast of."

More recently, Fritjof Capra explained that "Modern physics has shown that the rhythm of creation and destruction is not only manifest in the turn of the seasons and in the birth and death of all living creatures, but is also the very essence of inorganic matter," and that "For the modern physicists, then, Siva's dance is the dance of subatomic matter."

It is indeed as Capra concluded: "Hundreds of years ago, Indian artists created visual images of dancing Sivas in a beautiful series of bronzes. In our time, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology, religious art and modern physics."

COMMENTS:

Capra is wrong in equating the cosmic consciousness-force, Shiva, of the overmental plane, with the lowly physical phenomena of particle-anti particle interactions and the seasons and the cycle of birth, decay and death in general.

rabbee: no because the way you have expressed 1j 5. would be +3.65

and the square root of -9 would be 3j.

but what are the vector sum, and polar cordanance of v1 + vj1 = vt

No.

j^5 = 450 degree rotation = 5 pi/2^c = 2.5 pi ^c = 7.85^c

Or, simply put,

j^5 = j^4 x j =((-1)^1/2)^4 x j =+1 x j = j

What?

Polar cordanance? or Polar co-ordinates?

Polar co-ordinate general form:

x = rcos theta

y = esin theta

r = radial distance taken from (0,0)

r =(x^2 + y^2)^1/2

polar form into rect form:

Z = x + jy = aLtheta

Vt = vm Sin(wt + theta)

Hugh,

Where are you?

I am missing you, Mon.

I want to feel your "monstrous" presence online.

DEAREST HUGH,

I am once again feeling a bit sad after seeing all my neighbors celebrating with their families - such love and togetherness with the elders putting in their graceful and comforting presence and making loving gestures and appropriate suggestions to younger family members.

I have never found peace, happiness or love in my family life what with my late parents constantly fighting and my dad beating my mom and having multiple sexual affairs with his lady friends and my mom seeking refuge in the arms of another man to seek release from all the pain. Then this rascal of a master arrived on the scene and destroyed my nervous system and injected my being with adverse influences from which I am slowly emerging after dumping him.

My mind, nerves and emotions are damaged beyond repair and I can't stabilize.

More than a wife, I miss having soothing, nurturing, loving and intelligent elders around me.

I need to turn to someone of this kind to feel wanted and comforted.

I have to take all decisions and do everything myself.

I have no one to talk with in private and to turn to at home when I feel unhappy or lonely and I know that I will never have the pleasure of being a part of loving family gatherings.

At times, I feel scared and retreat into my shell and the shadows in this large apartment where I live by myself frighten me once in a while and then with shivers running down my spine I switch on all the lights until the feeling melts.

I just used this online medium of expressing my inner thoughts to you and I don't expect you to reply.

My eyes are moist but after pouring out my thoughts to you in this post I am feeling a bit better.

Thank you.

"The fact that modern physics, the manifestation of an extreme specialization of the rational mind, is now making contact with mysticism, the essence of religion and manifestation of an extreme specialization of the intuitive mind, shows very beautifully the unity and complementary nature of the rational and intuitive modes of consciousness; of the yang and the yin."

"Quantum theory thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe. It shows that we cannot decompose the world into independently existing smallest units. As we penetrate into matter, nature does not show us any isolated "building blocks," but rather appears as a complicated web of relations between the various parts of the whole. These relations always include the observer in an essential way. The human observer constitutes the final link in the chain of observational processes, and the properties of any atomic object can be understood only in terms of the object's interaction with the observer.”
