## What is Entropy (S)?

If appearances are everything, then why we do throw away the packaging of a product after we consume its contents. Were we deceived?

If we are convinced that we were duped to purchase the product, and we do not want to recycle, or we are unable to recycle, then how do we proceed?

Let’s send the packaging back to manufacturers for recycling at a shared expense.

There is a beautiful solution to one of the biggest problems currently facing our planet. Recycling and disposal are both costly, though efficient methods for eliminating waste materials that could otherwise pile up or cause environmental damage in some form over time – what if there were an easier way? It seems as though many people would support such action because they don’t want any more packaging going into landfills where it takes millennia before being compacted down again by further accumulation on top; plus sending back unwanted packages means less paper consumption! If everyone agreed right now then this idea might just achieve mainstream success (and who knows how quickly innovation can spread). So let’s get started.

Entropy (S) is the trash (shit/ignorance) we throw away each day.

And it’s also a great opportunity too. Can we do much better? How? And why?

Trash is not wasted energy. Something benefits (absorbs it) or something repels it… Right? How? Why?

## “WHAT IS DONE IS FINISHED! AND WHAT IS FINISHED IS DONE! AMEN!” — AJAHN BRAHM.

We must celebrate our accomplishments, small or great, with joy and gratitude. Thank Lord GOD! Amen! 👍✌

The universe is made of countless working parts, small or great. Each nonliving being or living being is performing a vital role, small or great.

And we, living beings, should not be primarily concerned about what others have done (good or bad) or left undone, but we should be primarily concerned about what we have done or left undone according to the wisdom of the Buddha. What are we doing now to promote peace and happiness generally?

For the sake of peace, we convert defilements (greed, ill will, and delusion) to enlightened states (compassion, love, and wisdom).

Moreover, we (not us and not ours) are conditional (temporal) and codependent beings. And that all are one. And one is all. Amen!

## WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A PEACEMAKER?

For the sake of peace, we (not us and not ours) let go skillfully. We convert defilements (greed, ill will, and delusion) into enlightened states (compassion, love, and wisdom).

And for the sake of peace, what are we doing right here and right now? Are our actions cultivating peace?

Moreover, we are conditional (temporal) and codependent beings. And that all are one. And one is all. Amen!

## There is only one word, GOD, that matters most. (It’s very personal and universal.)

“Without any claims (ego, health, talents, family, fame, wealth, power, etc.) and distractions (the world), we realize Lord GOD. And at the point of death, we know Lord GOD absolutely. Amen!”

Hmm. All the affairs of humanity and beyond pale in comparison to the Almighty GOD. Personally, Lord GOD reminds me often that I am a mere flawed mortal (a sinner)…

Lord GOD, please forgive/help me and have mercy on me.

There is the so-called trinity (the self, the world, and GOD). But the ultimate truth/reality/unity is one, GOD.

I wish I could be much better, but I need Lord GOD to overcome the defilements (greed, ill will, and delusion) of the human condition. And Lord GOD reminds me that I cannot stand apart from the Lord. Moreover, the Lord knows my weaknesses and my intentions… And I am constantly humbled in the presence of Lord GOD.

Finally, Lord GOD, please grant me the same grace you bestowed on me at the time of my birth to face my unavoidable death which may occur at any time.

Thank you, Lord GOD! And bless forever your name. Amen!

May all beings be happy and peaceful.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen!

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb and naked I shall return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord” —  Job 1:21.

## FAITH

We live by faith… Amen!

Does God exist? Yes!

Is there an afterlife? Yes! And it’s selfless or universal.

We, humans, are not alone in the universe. There are countless living beings throughout the universe.

We must cultivate an open and sensitive mind.

And we must not fear death, but we fear wrongdoing…

We remember we were born by the grace of Lord GOD. The Lord stood before us. The Lord stands with us. And the Lord will stand after us. We are not apart from Lord GOD. And the love of Lord GOD is supreme. Amen!

And we must not lean on our limited understanding, but we must always trust in Lord GOD. Amen!

In the name of Jesus, we meditate and pray daily, and Lord GOD will answer us and bless us with eternal peace and understanding.

Amen! 👍✌

## What could start a nuclear war between Russia and the West (US, NATO, EU, and allies)?

Ten Short Answers (Order/rank is unimportant. And some answers are unlikely.):

1. The West destroys the Russian economy via sanctions and other financial tools.
2. The West interferes with Russia’s military operations (war) in Ukraine directly by declaring and enforcing a no-fly zone over Ukraine’s territory.
3. The West interferes with Russia’s military operations (war) in Ukraine indirectly by providing Ukraine with lethal assistance (small arms, anti-tank missiles, drones, aircraft, etc.), military training, and intelligence.
4. Russia unleashes a massive cyberattack against a NATO member state.
5. The West arrests the Russian president for alleged war crimes committed in Ukraine and elsewhere.
6. The West enforces a naval blockade against some Russian vessels near Russian ports in the Black Sea and elsewhere.
7. The West send troops to Ukraine to defend against the invading Russian army.
8. The West bombs Russian military positions in Ukraine.
9. Russia bombs a NATO member state.
10. Russia destroys one or more satellites of a NATO member state.

HOW DOES THIS END?

PEACE OR PUNISHMENT IN UKRAINE? US SHOULD SEEK TO END THE CONFLICT.

US UNPREPARED FOR RUSSIAS’S MASSIVE RETALIATION

IT DOESN’T TAKE A MADMAN TO START A NUCLEAR WAR.

We, humans, should recall the nuclear destruction/horror (war crimes) of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. And we should recall the harmful impact of nuclear fallout from nuclear explosions/testings and from the nuclear waste/poison accumulated since the beginning of the atomic age.

WAR IS A WAR CRIME!

Are all declarations of war crimes debatable? (Security vs. insecurity, Justice vs. injustice, Might is Right vs. weak is wrong, political expediency (The USA was clearly winning the war against Japan in 1945…), etc.

“History is written by the victors. Slavery was/is a necessary evil. War is/was a necessary evil.”… )

We can relatively rationalize the destruction of humanity and life on Earth. Go figure!

## WHAT IF WE NUKE A CITY?

URGENT WARNING:  With the possession of nukes, there is an increasing possibility of their use, especially in times of high tension/conflict or war.

“Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” — Murphy’s Law.

“With the appropriate causes and conditions, the unthinkable or inconceivable (nuclear war, disasters, etc.) will happen.”

“May peace prevail, and may Lord GOD save humanity and protect life on Earth. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen!” 👍✌

## On the Truth of the Riemann Hypothesis

In a nutshell, the Riemann Hypothesis is true if and only if the divergent Harmonic Series exists.

Or if you prefer, the divergent Harmonic Series exists if and only if the Riemann Hypothesis is true.

We hope you realize the truth and the importance of the Riemann Hypothesis.

Good Luck! 👍

## On Constructing An Universal Simulator (It’s Purely Theoretical.)

We begin with a multidimensional state (status) vector (tensor?) with n channels (the elements of the vector). Each channel (c) has a state of either 0 (on) or 1 (off).

Channel 0 defines the existence of a theoretical entity called Oracle. If Oracle exists, then the status of Channel 0 is on (1).

Channel 1 defines the functions of Oracle. If Oracle is operable, then the status of Channel 1 is on (1). Otherwise, it is off (0) which may indicate sleep mode or malfunction.

Channel 2 defines the sleep mode of Oracle. If Oracle is awake, then the status of Channel 2 is on (0). Otherwise, it is sleeping (1).

Channel 3 defines the malfunction mode of Oracle. If Oracle is operable, then the status of Channel 3 is on (0). Otherwise, it has a malfunction (1).

Remark: We assume Oracle (if it exists) is part of an undefined (initially) environment (everything) called E. And there are constant interactions between Oracle and E. Rules will govern the interactions after E is well defined. And channels may contain subchannels. Moreover, Oracle will evolve as E evolves.

And of course, we must establish a multidimensional rule vector to keep track of all rules…

Thus far, each channel is a black box of possibilities…

“You know, people think mathematics is complicated. Mathematics is the simple bit. Its the stuff we can understand. Its cats that are complicated. I mean, what is it in those little molecules and stuff that make one cat behave differently than another, or that make a cat? And how do you define a cat? I have no idea.” ― John H. Conway.

Could the “DNA” of a cat’s life (simulation) be binary mathematics involving the numbers, zero and one? Who knows?

The math must be quite complex/complicated to simulate a cat’s life.
