Science and math issues that draw my interest and effort.

Heating Electricity Usage

I was surprised. This chart of our electricity usage by average outside temperature shows a wide variance in our usage at the same temperature.

MATLAB Excursion

MATLAB Excursion into Neural Networks

My MATLAB excursion, followed a break with a week in the White Mountains and another week at Old Orchard Beach. I found it hard to get directly back to editing my Mental Construction (MC) web site.       Hardware Search To ease back into thinking about neural network processing in the brain, I searched…

Staircase of Science

Winding Staircase, presented as a look through a castle wall

Science has lost of the thread of life going down the staircase, perhaps that’s why it can’t find free will on the way up.

Math And Science Affect How I Think and Write

The energy of activation that must be surmounted for a reaction to occur

When I make an argument or write an essay, it’s math and science that shape my thoughts, much more than the two English classes I took as an undergraduate. Minimal Orthogonal dimensions From vector space theory, construct a set of axioms which span the space of discussion and make those premises independent of each other.…

Troublesome Inheritance Thoughts

Four children of different skin color

            Troublesome Inheritance is a polemic by Nicholas Wade to develop his position—racial differences are real and account for the differential success of individuals and societies. He claims that there is a 14% genetic difference across the races. The differences are not uniquely different DNA strings (we’ve all heard that humans and chimps only differ…
