Michael Scott Doran

From Foreign Affairs January/February 2004
Summary: Saudi Arabia is in the throes of a crisis, but its elite is bitterly divided on how to escape it. Crown Prince Abdullah leads a camp of liberal reformers seeking rapprochement with the West, while Prince Nayef, the interior minister, sides with an anti-American Wahhabi religious establishment that has much in common with al Qaeda. Abdullah cuts a higher profile abroad but at home Nayef casts a longer and darker shadow.

(Achilles was the great Greek hero of Homer's The Illiad .) It has inspired many writers and thinkers through the ages, notably Lewis Carroll and Douglas Hofstadter, who also wrote dialogues involving the Tortoise and Achilles. The original goes something like this: The Tortoise challenged Achilles to a race, claiming that he would win as long as Achilles gave him a small head start. Achilles laughed at this, for of course he was a mighty warrior and swift of foot, whereas the Tortoise was heavy and slow. Achilles said nothing. Zeno's Paradox may be rephrased as follows. Suppose I wish to cross the room. First, of course, I must cover half the distance. Then, I must cover half the remaining distance. Then, I must cover half the remaining distance. Then I must cover half the remaining distance . . . and so on forever. The consequence is that I can never get to the other side of the room.

Parrondo Paradox
June 2001 ... two ugly parents can have beautiful children ...
Doron Zeilberger on receiving the 1998 Leroy P. Steele Prize Parrondo's Paradox is a double shocker. Counter to common intuition, it is possible to mix two losing games into a winning combination. This is a good news. But do not rub your hands just yet. The theory does not apply to casino games. Learning about it all must be its own reward. On the positive side but shaky ground, Sandra Blakeslee reported last year in NY Times that Dr. Sergei Maslov from Brookhaven National Laboratory had shown that if an investor simultaneously shared capital between two losing stock portfolios, capital would increase rather than decrease. (On the downside, as of the time of writing, it was too early to apply his model to the real stock market because of its complexity.) Since the Paradox has been reported a couple of years ago, many real world and abstract examples has been thought up that make it more palatable. Indeed, monetary rewards apart, a combination of negative trends may lead to a positive outcome. Brooke Buckley, an undergraduate student from Eastern Kentucky University

3.7  Zeno and the Paradox of Motion
The Eleatic school of philosophers was founded by the religious thinker and poet Xenophanes (born c. 570 BC), whose main teaching was that the universe is singular, eternal, and unchanging.  "The all is one."  According to this view, as developed by later members of the Eleatic school, the appearances of multiplicity, change, and motion are mere illusions.  Interestingly, the colony of Elea was founded by a group of Ionian Greeks who, in 545 BC, had been besieged in their seaport city of Phocaea by an invading Persian army, and were ultimately forced to evacuate by sea.  They sailed to the island of Corsica , and occupied it after a terrible sea battle with the navies of  Carthage and the Etruscans.  Just ten years later, in 535 BC, the Carthagians and Etruscans regained the island, driving the Phocaean refugees once again into the sea.  This time they landed on the southwestern coast of Italy and founded the colony of Elea , seizing the site from the native Oenotrians.  All this happened within the lifetime of Xenophanes, himself a wandering exile from his native city of

Hungarians and the Fermi Paradox Dear Dr. SETI:
What's this I hear about SETI and Hungarians? Supposedly it has something to do with the Fermi Paradox. MH, Hungary The Doctor Responds:
Physicist Enrico Fermi, said to be a firm believer in the existence of extra-terrestrials, was frustrated by the lack of firm evidence of their existence. Reasoning that advanced civilizations should by now have filled the Galaxy, Fermi came downstairs for lunch one afternoon at Los Alamos and blurted out his now-famous question, "Where are they?" "They are among us," it is reported that Hungarian-born physicist Leo Szilard responded, "but they call themselves Hungarians." Apparently, Szilard's comment had some cultural and historical basis. The following passage is from The Curve of Binding Energy by John McPhee (1973, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, pp. 104-105): So perhaps Szilard was trying to let his Italian-born colleague in on the secret. As it happens, I met with Teller recently, and can attest to the fact that he still has a thick Martian accent. He reminisced about Fermi's famous question, and when queried about Szilard's response, answered quite vehemently: "No! We're Martians!"

This article is about the logic concept. Borland Paradox is a database management tool.
The Monty Hall paradox: which door do you choose? A paradox is an apparently true statement that seems to lead to a logical self-contradiction, or to a situation that contradicts common intuition. The identification of a paradox based on seemingly simple and reasonable concepts has often led to significant advances in science philosophy and mathematics In moral philosophy , paradox plays a particularly central role in debates on ethics . For instance, an ethical admonition to "love thy neighbour" is in (not just contrast but) contradiction with an armed neighbour actively trying to kill you: if he or she succeeds, then, you will not be able to love them. But to preemptively attack them or restrain them is not usually understood as very loving. This might be termed an ethical dilemma ; another example is the conflict between an injunction not to steal and one to care for a family that you cannot afford to feed except with stolen money.

50. From Paradox To Paradigm
Alternative theory for RT based on dragged ether. Dragged ether is consistent with stellar aberration and the Dopplereffect. No-more paradoxes, inconsistencies or contradictions.
Quantum mechanics and the Relativity Theory are incompatible. Somewhere something must be wrong. In 1727 Bradley observed the star y-Draconis and measured the stellar aberration. Science concluded unjustly that dragged ether could not exist. Michelson and Morley proved without doubt with their famous experiment in 1887 that ether in absolute rest could not exist. After both ethers were denied the Special Relatively Theory of Einstein was inevitable. The propagation of forces and light through vacuum became mysterious and almost unexplainable; time and space became relative. Science unjustly rejected the hypothesis of the dragged ether. So the Relativity Theory is not indisputable anymore. The existence of dragged ether still is a scientific possibility. Exploring the possibilities of the dragged ether, it was "easy" to find mathematical and physical explanations for relativistic observations. The scientific explanations the ether is giving for yet unexplained and mysterious physical phenomena are vast. Elementary and atomic particles like electron, positron, proton, neutron, deuteron, photon and neutrinos reveal their existence in simple mathematics

Fermi paradox
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Radio telescope observations play a role in validating the Fermi paradox The Fermi paradox is a paradox proposed by physicist Enrico Fermi that questions the possibilities of finding intelligent extraterrestrial life . More specifically, it deals with the attempts to answer one of the most profound questions of all time: "Are we (the earthlings) the only technologically advanced civilization in the Universe?". The Drake equation for estimating the number of extraterrestrial civilizations with which we might come in contact seems to imply that we should not expect such contact to be extremely rare. Fermi's response to this conclusion was that if there were very many advanced extraterrestrial civilizations in our galaxy , then, "Where are they? Why haven't we seen any traces of intelligent extraterrestrial life e.g. probes, spacecraft or transmissions . Those that adhere to the premise behind the Fermi paradox often refer to that premise as the Fermi principle The paradox can be summed up as follows: The commonly held belief that the universe has many technologically advanced civilizations combined with our observations that suggest otherwise, is paradoxical, suggesting that either our understanding or our observations are flawed or incomplete

Appendix 1. About Model Theory
Some widespread Platonist superstitions were derived from other important results of mathematical logic (omitted in the main text of this book): Goedel's completeness theorem for predicate calculus, Loewenheim-Skolem theorem, the categoricity theorem of second order Peano axioms. In this short Appendix I will discuss these results and their methodological consequences (or lack of them). All these results have been obtained by means of the so-called model theory . This is a very specific approach to investigation of formal theories as mathematical objects. Model theory is using the full power of set theory. Its results and proofs can be formalized in the set theory ZFC Model theory is investigation of formal theories in the metatheory ZFC. The main structures of model theory are interpretations . Let L be the language of some (first order) formal theory containing constant letters c , ..., c
