Just for any fans who may want to see them. Quantum Space-Time Dynamics An article on my theory of Quantum Gravity. Stereotypes, Preconceptions, And The Public Image Of Science. Educating Our Youth. An article on science and soceity. About how the education of the very young keeps many away from science latter in life. Quantum Theory Lesson 1: Quantum states I think there are more which I don't recall at the moment so I may update this in the future.
A Word On Sexism, and How Cultural Differences Divide the Transsexual/Transgender Community. It's a small world after all! (A word to the reader part of this deals with sociology, psychology, and the use of language. Words and meanings of words to different people. Do not be offended. Read this in its entirety and the true meaning of my words will be revealed.) For my views expressed on this website I have been called...."Bailey supporter", a "Baileyite", a "HSTS ladyboy ", a "45 year old investment banker posing on line as a young transsexual", and last but not least "your like one of the Internet fakers on my website". Because a real, young, transsexual woman could never exist who would openly say I am not so offended by what Bailey wrote.
The exceptional Lie group and Lie Algebra F(4) in it's compact and real form may be the symmetry group associated with the theory of Quantum Space-Time Dynamics (see earlier article). In my studies of Gravity and physics in general what I have learned about one has augmented what I know about the other. My theory of Quantum gravity and Quantum Geometry has been developed based on what I knew at the times that I have formulated it. It's single postulate has remained constant. However as better and better computational methods have become known to me I have been able to improve on it.

This is the second in a series of youtube video's I am making. Which I have chosen to name “Quantum Theory in Plain Language”.

In this particular video I give what I hope is a simple and accurate explanation of Dirac's Bra-Ket Algebra. First I introduce the concept of the ket and bra as representing quantum states. (Which in the first video are defined as consisting of information describing a physical system.) Then I define what in the video I call a “ket space”. I make use of the average persons intuition from high school algebra or geometry. In particular the concept of the 2D (x,y) plain. Where the inner product <bra|ket> on the space is the simple dot product.


Well I know that not everyone's computer can do Youtube (especially if it is older or uses a less common OS). So Here I write the gist of what I said.

World Autism Awareness day was April 2nd 2008 as designated by the United Nations. Which was a good thing. However I think that a condition that effects 1/150 people on Earth needs a week or a month. Autistic people are neurologically different from the typical, average person. This varies form from being a handicap to a mild benefit in certain situations.

I have just completed the first in a series of youtube video's on quantum theory. This one deal with quantum states. In these video's I attempt to explain quantum mechanics in a way that anyone who has graduated high school could understand. The maths will never be more complicated than geometry and algebra and the language will be kept simple. However even with that I think that a basic apprectiation for quantum theory (not just certain sexy phenomena) can be attained. If anyof you see any glaring errors please feel free to chime in a correct me here on on you tube.
