Temperature of Heaven

The temperature of Heaven can be rather accurately computed.  Our authority is Isaiah 30:26, “Moreover, the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days.”  Thus Heaven receives from the Moon as much radiation as we do […]

You cannot get everything! Specially, out of distributed system!

CAP theorem (Brewer’s theorem) :It is impossible for distributed computer system to simultaneously provide all three of the following guarantees: Consistency: There are many way to describe it * All nodes see the same data at the same time.* Once a state is stored in the system, it will report the same state in every […]

Universe as a computation device!

Here is quote from paper published by Seth Lloyd of MIT in 2001. “Merely by existing, all physical systems register information. And by evolving dynamically in time, they transform and process that information. The laws of physics determine the amount of information that a physical system can register (number of bits) and the number of […]

Toss a coin

Q: “If you toss a coin a thousand times, how often will it come up heads?” A: “About fifty percent of the time.” If you consider this as “truth”, check http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=1697475. Real problem is how to evaluate actual situations (force, friction, airflow, weight etc) and calculate, without error, using scientific rules to find out if […]
