Why is English nationalism a suspect entity associated in peoples minds with right-wingers, fascists and unsavoury people. I believe the most progressive party in Europe is The SNP, the Scottish Nationalist Party. If they can combine progressive politics like getting rid of prescription charges,car-clamping and parking fees for hospital car-parks, then why can't we. There is nothing inherently right-wing about nationalism. A good friend of mine, A jewish man, fervently supports the Labour Party, and also Jewish nationalism, his wife, who is Welsh fervently supports Plaid Cymru, the Welsh Nationalist party. They are both extremely tolerant and civilised people.

I believe English nationalism is on the march and we're going to hear a lot more about it in the next ten years, as we will hear about Irish, Scottish and Welsh nationalisms, and also more regional ones like Cornish nationalism.

I don't apologise for being English or British and no-one should have to feel bad about supporting America or France or Italy.  More >

 Conjectures regarding the interval between the squares of prime numbers2 comments
category picture3 Mar 2011 @ 14:36

I've put forward the conjecture that between every consecutive prime number squared, there is in the interval always at least two sets of twin primes.

Reading recently Wells book on Prime numbers I've come across other assertions and conjectures regarding primes which lie between squares of consecutive prime numbers.

Google the following for more information but I will be documenting this artcle further at a later point:

Grieve's Twin Prime Conjecture , Brocard's Conjecture, Schinzel's Conjecture , Opperman's Conjecture and Bunyakowsy's Conjecture.

These other conjectures seem to be unaware of the fact that the primes referred to are mostly twin primes.  More >

 Gurdjieffs Astonishing Claim3 comments

The famous Russian mystic Gurdjieff who stll has numerous adherents seemed to be pre-destined to witness extraordinary, even unbelievable events and phenomena, psychological, paranormal, scientific and sociological.

In his famous book, "Meetings with Remarkable Men" he recounts a long story of witnessing with his own eyes a very alarming incident which seemingly trivial in its immediate manifestation, raises very serious concerns about his own integrity and verisimilitude, and about the nature of free will, passivity , receptivity even Yin and Yang.

A youth of indeterminate sex, was surrounded by a gang of tormentors who by merely drawing a circle around her, incapacitated her freedom of movement and who, as if by a magnetic or psychic force, was prevented from leaving the "magic" Circle  More >

 Matrilineal Clans1 comment
category picture25 Dec 2010 @ 13:27

It is well known that in ancient times descent and property passed in the female line and was connected to matrilineal clans. At some point in the development of all so-called "civilised" races the this type of clan was replaced by the patriarchal patrilineal clan reckoning descent and passing name and property through the male line.

Paganism was connected to the hundreds of clans so constructed.

It is of more than idle historial interest that Jewish society believed in one God, and seems to be the only one to do so, and it appears that they had no equivalent clan structures except the twelve tribes of Israel, all patriarchal, which are household names.

In the Jewish Kabbalistic tradition there is reference to Lilith, a semitic goddess,and it seems that belief in goddesses predated this monotheism in the same way that the moon goddesses of Arabia predated the Arabs' belief in One God.

All over the world it appears that goddesses predate the equivalent male gods who incidentally are represented by the father and troublesome sons while the goddesses are usually three sisters.

In the course of history these goddesses were suppressed and turned into hags, demons or monsters like Hecate, Medusa and her sisters.

There were many twists and turns in these coeval developments but the fact that paganism turned fron female to male and jewish society turned from paganism to monotheism suggest that monotheism is the "unacceptable face" of patriarchy, and paganism, as still practised in Hindu societies, is more acceptable.
