How Harvard and MIT checkmated Oxford and Cambridge


Oxford and Cambridge have long been the gatekeepers of modern cosmology. Indeed, in recent decades they have ruthlessly protected their power over academe; while suppressing any challenging theories, they have touted their Randomness/Atheism construct as the only plausible theory of cosmic origins.

Randomness/Atheism posits that the universe is random, devoid of purpose and inexorably decaying and falling apart. Their theory can be summarized in one simple and easy-to-remember phrase: All is random.

Coming into the 21st challengers to this antiquated theory – Harvard-educated David Birnbaum and MIT’s Seth Lloyd. Their respective constructs dovetail with each other’s. Coming from the metaphysics and physics arenas respectively, Birnbaum and Lloyd de facto offer a powerful hybrid construct – Potentialism/Quantum Universe which readily trumps Randomness/Atheism theory.

David Birnbaum is an independent metaphysicist and author of the widely-featured Summa Metaphysica series – Summa Metaphysica I, II and III (Ktav, 1988; New Paradigm Matrix, 2005; and New Paradigm Matrix, 2014). Seth Lloyd is a professor of Quantum Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering at MIT, and the author of Programming the Universe (Knopf, 2006).

In 1988, Birnbaum proposed an audacious theory of the universe in his Summa Metaphysica I. What if the universe isn’t purposeless? What if, completely contrary to the entrenched academic/scientific dogma, it was the exact opposite? What Birnbaum proposed, was his profound and powerful Theory of Potential (see

The theory proposes – concisely capturing cosmic history in one simple phrase – is that the universe strives towards its optimal potential. And the theory does more than just describe the natural world; it describes the universe in its entirety – from macro to micro levels, with humanity somewhere in the middle. Language, emotion, and beauty are, of course, included in-the-mix.

The Birnbaum theory basically discerns a Common Denominator – infinite divine quest for potential – to the entire cosmic order. As noted, this cosmic Common Denominator operates across the entire spectrum of universe-levels. The universe is not a mish-mash of aimlessness and decay, as per the Randomness/Atheistic crew; rather it is purpose-driven integrated organic entity seeking advance and growth.

Advance and growth – these are things the Randomness/Atheistic crew will never likely understand. But the truth is, if Randomness/Atheism can’t account for the way the universe manifests, then it is a fatally flawed theory. By comparison, Birnbaum tackles all these issues head on. Potentialism describes human emotion and art as easily as it describes thermodynamics and gravity. Everything in the universe is describable in terms of Potential. And the theory seamlessly handles the entire flow of cosmic history and advance.

For those who wonder where the hard math of science comes in, that is where Seth Lloyd enters the story. Lloyd has done extensive research on quantum mechanics and how it shapes the natural world around us. Based on his extensive knowledge, Lloyd has also produced highly respected computer century though, the US has unleashed two sophisticated and cutting-edge
models of how the universe is governed by quantum mechanical principles.

And what are MIT Professor Seth Lloyd’s own findings? Lloyd in his 2006 work Programming the Universe sees the universe as a quantum information-processing organic entity. That’s a mouthful, but what Lloyd is proposing is that the universe keeps iterating and advancing to seek ever-richer complexity. But wait, that is what Birnbaum first proposed in 1988 (see

In any event, the 2006 Lloyd theory complements – and dovetails with – the 1988 Birnbaum theory. Birnbaum’s Theory of Potential actually wraps-around the (more limited and contained) Lloyd proposition. Birnbaum in 1988 provides the conceptual context, concept, igniter, drive and goal of the universe; Lloyd proposes the (crucial) mechanics; Birnbaum has been clear – see – that he is quite honored to have MIT’s Lloyd as part of his metaphysics/physics tag-team; together, they present an elegant 21st growth and advance, quite readily trumping the (now antiquated) 20th construct of decay and aimlessness.

The advance of knowledge and science is inexorable; Harvard’s Birnbaum and MIT’s Lloyd have successfully dethroned Cambridge and Oxford’s hegemony, and set-the-stage for 21st cosmology. Onward!

Why ThePensters is the service to choose


When you need an essay or a dissertation to be written, there is usually no opportunity to look through numerous writing services and compare the quality of assistance they provide – there are just too many of them and the majority of these agencies are too much alike to make any real difference.

ThePensters is a brand new kind of a content writing service to choose.

Peculiarities of the System

In most cases the procedure of using a writing service boils down to the following: you place an order with a service, pay a fixed price for this particular kind of work and this particular number of pages, the operator assigns your task to somebody without asking about your opinion, you wait and, if you are lucky and happened to choose a legitimate service, after some time you get your paper. You don’t have any guarantee of quality, you don’t know who is writing your assignment, you cannot contact them and ask how the work proceeds – it is all pure chance.

When you come to ThePensters, however, you will immediately see that the very system operates according to very different principles. This service is more akin to freelance resources, where freelance creative workers and people who need a job done look for each other, communicate and agree on terms that satisfy everyone.

There are no fixed prices for a particular work because the system is not centralized. The client looks through the profiles of the academic writers at ThePensters and decides for who he wants to work with, how much he is ready to pay for these services, how long he is prepared to wait and so on. He doesn’t buy a pig in a poke – he can look through the credentials of the writer, check on his rating and in other ways learn who he is dealing with.

Guarantee of Quality

ThePensters, however, doesn’t leave the client alone with his or her problem. This service doesn’t just provide a means of communication between the client and a creative worker – it makes sure that each and every writer is a professional, reliable and trustworthy person. Nobody starts working for ThePensters without undergoing a comprehensive testing of his writing abilities and knowledge of subjects he is going to write about. In addition to that, ThePensters employs a dispute system – in case there is a conflict between the writer and the client both of them may be sure that an impartial committee will look into the problem and find out who is in the right and who is in the wrong. Each dispute is paid full attention to, and you may be sure to get justice when you need in.

All in all, ThePensters provides some very good reasons to at least try their services out – this agency is so unlike most others that it deserves attention for this reason alone.
