CITIZEN INVESTIGATING HISTORY
by Jimmy from Bright Insight here (video)
comment by BK:
i just remember the year 2002, our physics teacher told us: “the atom is the smallest entity”
i was just about 18 and told her about up and down quarks.
she answered: “i know, but its not on the curriculum”
“but dont you teaching us an old/wrong information, then?” i asked.
“stop the discussion and sit down, please” she said.
i asked again, of course.
result: 5min timeout in front of the class room.
yes Jimmy, we have a problem here!
The same thing that happened to Copernicus, Galileo, the Wright Brothers and the guy who suggested hygene in operation theaters(they gave him a sanitorium stay)
REVERSAL FLYNN EFFECT
comment by BK:
i’ve sended a message to Mr. Flynn on 30.11.2018:
(he confirmed the receipt and i hope its taken seriously into consideration)
“There was a german study on freshwatershrimps the other year.
While the parents themself, were NOT affected, their offspring showed significantly signs of plasticpollution (mutations, orientation difficulties, etc...)”
that in the near future, with WORLD PEACE ENGINE online,
important global questions like this, are not depending on one single professor and the guy in the workshop and instead a ten years old could go viral and assemble a taskforce.
