82. Tritone Paradox And Spectral-Motion AfterEffects
An overview of Shepard and Deutsch tones, the tritone paradox, and acoustic illusions analogous to spiral motion aftereffects is presented.
MAIN MENU The tones used to create the tritone paradox were synthesized by Diana Deutsch at the University of California - San Diego . The tones used are similar to those created by Roger Shepard in that they are specially designed complex tones that consist of ocatve related sinewave components. Shepard tones consist of 10 components (octaves) and are presented through a Gaussian-shaped spectral filter (see Figure to the right).
The tones used in the tritone paradox have 6 components (octaves) and are presented through a bell-shaped spectral envelope (see Figure to the left). The filtering results in the frequency components being attenuated about the centre frequency. These Deutsch tones are perceptually similar to Shepard tones, although to date, there has been no systematic investigation of perceptual effects arising from the differences between the two types of tones.
Illusions arise from Deutsch and Shepard tones when the spectral envelopes are held constant and the frequencies components are raised or lowered in pitch. This raising or lowering in pitch can be done in a continuous fashion creating a glide, or in discrete steps. Theoretically, the interval distance of each step could be any value within the span of an octave - the limit of which results in an identical tone. Most studies have employed the 12 equal logarithmic steps that span an octave in traditional Western Music called semitones. The resulting 'chromatic' tones are represented on a piano by the 12 black and white keys that span an octave interval.

Fermi's Paradox
In 1985 Shklovskii formulated the problem of Extraterrestrial Intelligence. He was engaged in this problem almost all his life. But most surprising is the fact that having passed the way from the early romanticism of 60's (the artificial creation of Fobos and Deimos) through the more realistic concept of the uniqueness of life in the Universe (an absence of space miracles ), which engages the west scientists up to now , he came to the conclusion which could be obtained still before the space age and the programs of searches of extraterrestrial life! As a matter of fact, the problem is reduced to the so called Fermi's paradox which in modern language looks as follows (Lipunov,1987): there are two observational or, if you like, experimental facts: 1) the age of the Universe is year, 2) a specific time t of exponential development for our civilization is of the order of some tens of years. For the sake of simplicity it san be adopted years which is obviously an overestimation. A gigantic dimensionless number characterizes the growth of a technological civilization over the time of existence of the Universe:

84. Liar Paradox [Internet Encyclopedia Of Philosophy]
Liar paradox. The Liar paradox is an argument that arrives at a contradiction by reasoning about a Liar Sentence. History of the paradox and Possible Solutions.
Liar Paradox The Liar Paradox is an argument that arrives at a contradiction by reasoning about a Liar Sentence. The classical Liar Sentence is the following self-referential sentence: (1) This sentence is false. Experts in the field of philosophical logic have never agreed on the way out of the trouble despite 2,300 years of attention. Here is the troublea sketch of the Liar Argument that reveals the contradiction: The argument depends upon a few more assumptions and steps, but these are apparently as uncontroversial as those above. The contradictory result throws us into the lion's den of semantic incoherence. This article explores the details of the principal attempts to resolve the paradox. Most people, when first encountering the Liar Paradox, will react by saying that the Liar Sentence must be meaningless. This popular solution does stop the argument of the paradox, but it isn't an adequate solution if it answers the question, "Why is the Liar Sentence meaningless?" simply with the ad hoc remark, "Otherwise we get a paradox." An adequate solution would offer a more systematic treatement. For example, the sentence, "This sentence is in English," is very similar to the Liar Sentence. Is it meaningless, too? What ingredients of the Liar Sentence make it meaningless such that other sentences with those same ingredients will also be meaningless? Are disjunctions with the Liar Sentence also meaningless? The questions continue, and an adequate solution should address them systematically.

86. Russell's Paradox [Internet Encyclopedia Of Philosophy]
Russell s paradox. Russell s paradox represents either of two interrelated logical antinomies. Possible Solutions to the paradox of Properties.
Russell's Paradox Russell's paradox represents either of two interrelated logical antinomies. The most commonly discussed form is a contradiction arising in the logic of sets or classes. Some classes (or sets) seem to be members of themselves, while some do not. The class of all classes is itself a class, and so it seems to be in itself. The null or empty class, however, must not be a member of itself. However, suppose that we can form a class of all classes (or sets) that, like the null class, are not included in themselves. The paradox arises from asking the question of whether this class is in itself. It is if and only if it is not. The other form is a contradiction involving properties. Some properties seem to apply to themselves, while others do not. The property of being a property is itself a property, while the propery of being a cat is not itself a cat. Consider the property that something has just in case it is a property (like that of being a cat ) that does not apply to itself. Does this property apply to itself? Once again, from either assumption, the opposite follows. The paradox was named after Bertrand Russell, who discovered it in 1901.

History Russell's discovery came while he was working on his Principles of Mathematics . Although Russell discovered the paradox independently, there is some evidence that other mathematicians and set-theorists, including Ernst Zermelo and David Hilbert, had already been aware of the first version of the contradiction prior to Russell's discovery. Russell, however, was the first to discuss the contradiction at length in his published works, the first to attempt to formulate solutions and the first to appreciate fully its importance.

Someone told me that if there are 20 people in a room, there's a 50/50 chance that two of them will have the same birthday. How can that be?
This phenomenon actually has a name it is called the birthday paradox , and it turns out it is useful in several different areas (for example, cryptography and hashing algorithms ). You can try it yourself the next time you are at a gathering of 20 or 30 people, ask everyone for their birth date. It is likely that two people in the group will have the same birthday. It always surprises people! The reason this is so surprising is because we are used to comparing our particular birthdays with others. For example, if you meet someone randomly and ask him what his birthday is, the chance of the two of you having the same birthday is only 1/365 (0.27%). In other words, the probability of any two individuals having the same birthday is extremely low. Even if you ask 20 people, the probability is still low less than 5%. So we feel like it is very rare to meet anyone with the same birthday as our own. When you put 20 people in a room, however, the thing that changes is the fact that each of the 20 people is now asking each of the other 19 people about their birthdays. Each individual person only has a small (less than 5%) chance of success, but each person is trying it 19 times. That increases the probability dramatically.

A recent book, The Paradox of Choice: Why More is Less less satisfied as the are offered more choices. I tend to believe he's right. The Java world alone offers plenty of anecdotal evidence. For instance, after occasional frustration with Eclipse's quirky slowdowns, I decided to give JEdit a try. Out of the box, JEdit has a fairly basic feature set, but the vast selection of plugins is its selling point. So I downloaded JEdit, after deliberating a moment on which download site to choose (

95. Einsteins Incompleteness Argument
Another site describing the EPR paradox.
One of the first physicsts to be publically troubled by the philosophical interpretations of quantum mechanics was Albert Einstein. In 1935, he co-authored a paper which was intended to show that Quantum Mechanics could not be a complete theory of nature. The arguments in the EPR paper are very similar to ones which Einstein himself made in correspondences to friends, but are not exactly the same. The first thing to notice is that Einstein was not trying to disprove Quantum Mechanics in any way. In fact, he was well aware of its power to predict the outcomes of various experiments. What he was trying to show was that Quantum Mechanics could not be a complete theory of nature and that some other theory would have to be invoked in order to fully describe nature. The argument begins by assuming that there are two systems, A and B (which might be two free particles) , whose wavefunctions are known. Then, if A and B interact for a short period of time, one can determine the wavefunction which results after this interaction via the Schroedinger equation or some other Quantum Mechanical equation of state. Now, let us assume that A and B move far apart, so far apart that they can no longer interact in any fashion. In other words

Modern Physics Quantum Physics Quantum Mechanics General Quantum Mechanics
Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Paradox

A paradox first enunciated by Einstein et al. (1935), who proposed a thought experiment that appeared to demonstrate quantum mechanics to be an incomplete theory. The usual view of quantum mechanics says that a wave function determines the probabilities of an actual experimental result and that it is the most complete possible specification of the quantum state. Einstein et al. believed the predictions of quantum mechanics to be correct, but only as the result of statistical distributions of other unknown but real properties of the particles. Bohm (1951) presented a paper in which he described a modified form of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen thought experiment which he believed to be conceptually equivalent to that suggested by Einstein et al. (1935), but which was easier to treat mathematically. Bohm suggested using two atoms with a known total spin of zero, separated in a way that the spin of each atom points in a direction exactly opposite to that of the other. In this situation, the angular momentum of one particle can be measured indirectly by measuring the corresponding vector of the other particle. Bell (1964) subsequently formulated Bell's inequalities , which seemed to be a physically reasonable condition of locality which imposed restrictions on the maximum correlations of the measurements of a pair of spin 1/2 particles formed somehow in the singlet state and moving freely in opposite directions. This inequality can be tested in a laboratory experiment because the statistical predictions of quantum mechanics are incompatible with any local

Author and Background
Introduction What is paradox? In the search for the rational understanding of infinitude, through studies in philosophy and physics, paradoxes arise as absolute barriers to the creation of any context of a final theory. Is this issue resolvable through new and more complex concepts, or alternatively, is it possible that the existence of paradox is a prerequisite in the construction of what is fundamental and universal?
The concept of IToE The Impressionist Theory of Everything (IToE) examines the above question and its impact on the process of observation and the conclusion. The role of dimension and its development is a central concept. Given that the universe represents a dimensionally infinite structure, IToE studies how dimensionality grows from a null condition for empirical dynamic processes and theoretic structures.
The formal structures of observation and conclusion do not properly represent this cross-dimensional growth because formal descriptions require a fixed structure of identities and relationships. By contrast, the cross-dimensional development described in IToE is not fixed but rather crosses absolute boundaries for how these properties are defined.
