"[I]f the scientists are correct, the worlds out there are parallel to ours. Well, not parallel, but branches from the same tree, from the same history. … "Worlds where Tesla never heard about Yellowstone while visiting Colorado in 1903, never had his imagination fired by descriptions of 'Coulter's Hell,' never had the fundamental inspiration for the Tesla Field."

The three of them had stood at their places, along with all the senators and representatives, waiting for the new president to arrive. They'd stood. And stood.

After a moment, Graciella added, "Would Rosa Parks have done this?" "I think she would have, dear." But a few moments later, the President swe...

Waters, skies, and feelings. A photoalbum

By: Florentin Smarandache

Neutrosophic Evolution as extension of Darwin’s Evolution: The Cav...

By: Florentin Smarandache

This photoalbum presents images from the caves the author visited in the Southwestern United States, and wants to popularize the theory of neutrosophic evolution (degrees of evolution, indeterminacy, and involution), offering new evidences in favor of it, extracted from biospeleology.

During the process of adaptation of a being (plant, animal, or human), to a new environment or conditions, the being partially evolves, partially devolves (degenerates), and partially is indeterminate i.e. neither evolving nor devolving, therefore unchanged (neutral), or the change is unclear, ambiguous, vague, as in neutrosophic logic. Thank to adaptation, one therefore has: evolution, involution, and indeterminacy (or neutrality), each one of these three neutrosophic c...

Dor. Fotoalbum

By: Florentin Smarandache

“România este țara mea. M-am născut, am crescut, am învățat în România. Când am hotărît să plec din țara mea, nu de dânsa am fugit, ci de relele care o cuprinseseră. În lagăr, în exil și în toată lumea pe unde am străbătut, am rămas român. Limba română e limba în care merg, în care matematicesc, în care dorm (și nu prea), în care mă sfădesc și mă împac cu gândurile mele, cu mine, cu lumea și cu ceilalți. Căci, mai presus de orice, limba română e, pentru mine, limba sent...
