A General Theory of the Effects of Changes

Let us have three somethings to be examined. (The word “something” is to indicate that they can be anything.) Let their places in time be as shown in fig. 1. The change will take place from bottom upward in the figure. As it can be seen, the two-sign one came off tahat with one sign,…

The Problem of Systemization

Science tries to put everything in well-separated categories. Nature however does not seem to care about this. It does not separate in a clear-cut way things that are close to each other; there are so-called transitory forms as well. In the language of mathematics this means that there is a two-variable continuous function in which…

Living Things

It would not occur to anybody to attempt and describe a brick, a house which it is used to build, and the other things the house contains by the same definition and mark them off from all other things. Impossible as it obviously is, that is what happens in the case of simple and complex…

What conclusions can be drawn from the events that had happened in the region that is today the Moody Creek Mine, New Zealand?

Your paper carried an article (V. Vajda, S. MacLoughlin: Fungal Proliferation at the Cretaceous – Tertiary Boundary, Science, Vol. 303, 5. March 2004, 1489), in which the authors presented plant fossils found in the Moody Creek Mine, New Zealand. According to their findings, the sudden disappearance of the earlier vegetation was followed by a fungal…

A better explanation for the late cretaceous events

It is not yet known how long it took for the dinosaurs, ammonites, etc. to die out, for we still have no means or method for determining so. Under normal circumstances surface waters are more rich in the carbon isotope number 13 than water in layers below. Therefore, lime skeletons of creatures living on the…

The unlikely theory of the end of the late cretaceous

What is the most fashionable theory for what happened about 65 million years ago when “the late Cretaceous extinctions not only caused the demise of the dinosaurs but also accounted for the huge losses of the Foraminifers, the unicellular animals that serve as the basis of the sea food chain”, as Jozsef Palfy wrote in…
