Inconsistency of Biography of Tsien Hsue-Shen

Authors: Jian-zhong Zhao
Comments: 16 Pages. Key words: Tsien Hsue-Shen, biography, inconsistency, philosophy, rocketry, Marxism, Anti-Duhring, Dialectics of Nature, Capital, puzzles

Tsien Hsue-Shen, an expert of mechanics, the “King of Rocketry ” of China, lived in US for twenty years long. Iris Chang (by a book in 1995) and Judith R. Goodstein (by a report of a conversation with Lee Alvin DuBridge in 2003) gave accounts of Tsien ’s biography. In 2013, “Exhibition of Achievements of People ’s Scientist Tsien Hsue-Shen ” toured to universities in Shanghai and Chinese cities of Beijing, Kunming, Chengdu, Wuhan, Lanzhou and Huhehaote, displaying a different version of Tsien ’s activities in US and declaring that Tsien read and studied, with great concentration, the philosophy of Marxism during his stay in US. In the present article, the Marxism reading is questioned, interpreting that Tsien ’s success stems from the technology that he learned in US rather than the philosophy of Marxism. Tsien left behind puzzles, as well as rockets, missiles and satellites, as his legacy. His legend remains mysterious and inconsistent even today.

SuperNova Precession Period of Peace

Authors: Frank Dodd Tony Smith Jr
Comments: 38 Pages.

The 24,925 year period beginning with the Shock Wave of the Geminga SuperNova 36,525 years ago and ending with the Vela X SuperNova 11,600 years ago corresponds roughly to one 26,000 year Earth Precession Period. No written historical record has been found for that SuperNova Precession Period during which Humans had migrated out of Africa to populate much of the Earth continuing the African IFA divination system, producing Cave Art, developing Sanskrit and the Rig Veda and the Meru Prastara, and building the Great Pyramid complex at Giza. Human Civilization during much of that SuperNova Precession Period seems to have been Peaceful, living in Harmony with Nature and with Each Other, so Manetho characterized it as the time of the Rule of Gods, Demigods and Spirits and I would call it the SuperNova Precession Period of Peace. However, after the Vela X SuperNova 11,600 years ago Human Civilization entered the Present Precession Period, Manetho’s time of the Rule of Mortal Humans characterized by (to paraphrase Terence McKenna) scarcity, preservation of privilege, and ever-more-sophisticated use of technology and ideology to control people. This paper is an attempt to describe the SuperNova Precession Period of Peace and to explore possible future paths of the Present Precession Period, including possible Global Nuclear War and possible Global Reconciliation and Peace.
