[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: There’s a fella named Graham Priest. He deals with a contradiction to contradictions, dialetheia. He, basically, drove that entire field. Anyway, the New York Times, Gulalai and the Ismail family has been featuredtwo or three or four times in the last couple of years.

She’s from Pakistan and is fighting for women’s rights and issues. She is one the leading global thinkers of 2013 for Foreign Policy. She won the Anna Politkovskaya award and a bunch of other things.

She’s like 16 with her sister, Saba. They founded a girls and women’s rights and empowerment organization in Pakistan, Aware Girls. There’s like 150 countries that have been ranked. It’s like third from the bottom or something for the status of women and girls (Pakistan). So, yes, it’s military dictatorships, secular plus Islamic theocracy is the worst of both fundamentalist religious and fundamentalist atheism.

Rick Rosner: It’s an acid in your face country.

Jacobsen: Well, Malala Yousafzai, right? Yes, so, interesting thing, get this, they found Aware Girls. That’s where Malala got her start. That’s where she got these ‘radical’ gender equality ideas, literally.

So, Gulalai Ismail is the inspiration for Malala. Literally, they were in her school. They knew her personally. They’re very proud of her. They’re in the humanist community. They have been part of it for a while.

Anyway, I was thinking about bullet points to maths about. Where if I bring up various principles or scientific constructs in physics, and then we take an informational cosmological version of this translated, does that make a little sense? What would be your immediate objections to that, if any?

Rosner: But I haven’t been caught flat footed or that I’ve got no good answer.

Jacobsen: Do you need to give a couple of concepts to me, come back in a bit and we do it?

Rosner: Sure.

Jacobsen: What areas of physics are you most comfortable in, quantum mechanics?

Rosner: No, I mean anything, but whether I can translate them to informational stuff is questionable.

Jacobsen: Ok, could you give us just, historically, the four fundamental forces, or could simply force and mass and acceleration? What do those represent informationally? That sort of thing.

Rosner: We can start with fundamental forces.

Jacobsen: Ok, so, you want to come back after thinking about it a bit or you jump into it?

Rosner: No, we can jump in.

Jacobsen: Ok, so, where’s the record button? We’re already recording. That’s hilarious.

*High range testing (HRT) should be taken with honest skepticism grounded in the limited empirical development of the field at present, even in spite of honest and sincere efforts. If a higher general intelligence score, then the greater the variability in, and margin of error in, the general intelligence scores because of the greater rarity in the population.*
