Explanation Why “when One Takes Money he Becomes a Slave” Using Automata Theory and Van Der Pol Equation

Authors: Nikolaj Roerich
Comments: 5 Pages.

Using automata theory and Van Der Pol equation theory we explain why “when one takes money he becomes a slave” (this formula is universal and there is no one who can escape this law): when one takes money he inevitably makes more complexity into his life, by this his way of thinking becomes a cycle (he does not see the reality anymore), and therefore he has no really new ideas never, he falls into complete illusion that he achieves something. This article describes the meaning of the following Buddha’s story: Prince Gautama who had become Buddha saw one of his followers meditating under a tree at the edge of the Ganges river. pon inquiring why he was meditating, his follower stated he was attempting to become so enlightened he could cross the river unaided. Buddha gave him a few pennies and said: "Why don't you seek passage with that boatman. It is much easier." As one can see the modern civilization result is actually “three pennies” because this civilization is in the cycle for several thousands years.

Superpowers, Soft Power and Smart Analytics

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 14 Pages.

As a testimony to this growth of the ‘soft power’ culture fueled by progress in information technology, the present work presented Google Search Trend Results of three countries – Russia, China and India, all three member of the BRICS and often visualized as the past, present and future superpowers respectively. The time period of 2012-2016 was chosen for the analysis, and search trend data from 13 other countries (USA, UK, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, Indonesia, Australia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Vietnam and Turkey) are chosen, owing to various factors such as internet penetration, representative of American, Latin American, European, Australian, West, South, East and Southeast Asian perceptions, and population among the world’s top 20. On comparing Russia, India and China among global search trends between 2004 and 2016, it is seen that India clearly leads the other two nations by a significant amount, possessing a steadily increasing trend over the years. Overall, it is clearly evident that India leads by example in establishing the “Soft Power” Culture on the global platform. Apart from its own population of 1.2 billion, clearly a lot of expectant eyes and hearts are set to welcome India as the next Superpower, in the dawn of an era characterized by culture, soft power, fueled by rapid advancement and progress of information technology, with reduced violence and muddled borders, and advancing human civilization to the next level. Jai Hind!

Authors: Aurelia Dumitru, Marioara Avram, Marian Siminică
Comments: 11 Pages.

This study explores the main theories with incidence in describing, explaining and predicting behavior of touristic services consumer’s. The research method is of meta-analysis type. Our study assumes that consumers’ perceptions and beliefs play an important role in the decision to become a beneficiary of a tourist service offered by a travel company or by a touristic services intermediary. The literature retains several models that explain the relationship between consumers’ behavior and information promotion of touristic product. There are four theories underlying the action of implementing these models subsequent to the idea of consumer’s behavior: Selective Attention Theory, Congruity Principle Balance Theory, Cognitive Dissonance Theory. After exploring the potential of these theories in order to generate a competitive advantage for tourism service providers it is concluded that the convergent use of these four theories of planning, organizing, implementing, managing and controlling the marketing touristic activities is the method with the most significant impact on the behavior of travel services consumer.

About the Name of Actually Communication Studying Discipline

Authors: Ştefan Vlăduţescu
Comments: 7 Pages.

This study explores the literature on the name of discipline which seeks communication. It notes that there are various names designating this subject: Communication Theory, Communication Science, Sciences de l'Information et of Communication (SIC), Communicology, Communication studies. It appears, then, that the discipline dealing with the phenomena of communication is (along with Psychology, Anthropology and Sociology) a social science. There is that, although seem to refe r to one and the same phenomenon of communication,referred disciplines not examine the communication as a whole, but focuses on different areas; ie they are fragmented. Starting from the origin and connection (Lat. "Communis" + the Gr. Word "logos" "speech , thought, study") and making use of the analogy of Sociology (Latin word "Socius" + Gr. "Logos" ) and Anthropology (Gr. "anthropos" + "logos") is seeking a convergence of names. It is estimated that it should reach convergence in respect of at least two c riteria: the study of communication as a whole and understanding communication as a multi - structured universe. Such criteria somehow it would comply with a title like "Strong Communication Science Communicology". Yet the question persists and therefore the future must be sought arguments to name a possible unitary communication science.

The Liminality as Means of Mass Media for Transform of a Daily Event in Ritual

Authors: Bianca Teodorescu, Oprea Valentin Bușu
Comments: 8 Pages.

The aim of this study is to underline the effective used of liminality by mass media for transform in ritual a daily event. Theoretical backgound is constituted by concept of liminality which was launched by Arnold Van Gennep and was developed by Victor Turner (who has named the concept of the liminality – liminoid). In this framework, the study proves that in contemporary society, mass media are commited as responsible for mediatization of rituals in distinctive ceremonials: social, political, religious, and other. When people are watching television, they are introduced, by the media, in a liminal space, where they get to be members in the act of rites of passage. From the moment when their attention is enthralled by what is on television, people are induced in an ambiguous state; they are separated from reality. The media creates for each important ritualised ceremonial, the necessary time, in order to create a subjection of the public. In the contemporary society our basic activities are, in fact, rituals.

The method used is complex and consists of critical analysis and synthesis of the views expressed by leading specialists in settling elements of convergence and divergence and configure a wide set of admissible functions and practices observed. On compatible functions and apply practices observed in the second stage, a set of procedures for corroboration, collation and confrontation with communication phenomenology. Finally, are retained as general functions of communication: relationship (networking) function, and “communization” (sharing) function. We check viability and generality of these functions on an example of organizational communication.

Karma, the Past and the History

Authors: Janis Belov
Comments: 3 Pages.

Using mathematical methods we show that two solutions of Maxwell's equations correspond to two time directions. One comes as an echo from a Divine word that marks all the thoughts and deads as bad or good by this forming Karma that also Richard Feynman was speaking about. Everything in the Universe is built as a Wave - some solution of corresponding equations such as Schrodinger equations with some Hamiltonian (see eg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schr%C3%B6dinger_equation#/media/File:StationaryStatesAnimation.gif). So, the Universe is actually some Hilbert space of such waves, in other words information, or Turing Machine that created and creates that space and all its elements (people, animals, plants and so on). The surrounding world is only a mirror - "Big TV" - that shows everything and teaches people. Due to people decided not to look into the mirror there is a gap or duality in the human conscience called Karma. The same as well-known duality in Quantum Physics. The article shows that there is no duality and that there is always the Watcher who sees All.

Aristotelian Opening Way and Actual Argumentation and Demonstration’s Profile

Authors: Ștefan Vlăduțescu, Janusz Grabara, Sebastian Kot
Comments: 13 Pages.

This study reveals Aristotle's modeling contribution to the establishment of a recognizable figure of argumentation and demonstration. These two ways of imposing an idea configure similarly: from the premises, relying on principles and with the help of some rules of inference arguments are presented which induce, inevitably or within the truth limits, a conclusion. Aristotle introduces the concept of topos, and a canon of argumentation and a canon demonstration are delineated. For stated figures of argumentation and demonstration, the Aristotelian canons constitute the first opening look.

Chaos Theory, Society and Law: A New Paradigm

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 8 Pages.

The present work presents an insight into how complexity, chaos and nonlinear dynamics play a crucial role in determining the co-evolution of the society-and-law system. The paradigm shift obtained from a reductionist dominant to a holistic dynamical systems approach entails reversing a “reductionist funnel” to ensure better balance and coordination among the freedom, rights and regulations attractors, driving socio-legal principles in the context of human free will. Also, the significance of freedom-right-regulation balance in socio-legal design in the context of various Indian philosophy schools are understood.

Proof that Work Cost is Illusion

Authors: Janis Belov
Comments: 2 Pages.

How much does the work of a sanitary worker cost? In new European union countries it costs 100 eur for two days work to reinstall the water pipes in bath and kitchen, and in old European country to suck sewage from the ground sewer costs 300 eur for 10 min, and sanitary hourly work is about 70 eur. One can ask why is so huge difference? The materials are the same, the technology is the same. What makes that difference? Is the cost of work just an illusion as Karl Marx wrote in Capital that capitalists manipulate so well. In this article, we show that there is a Law that proves that Work Cost is Illusion. The work cost is proprotional to the number of rules of the underlied economical system.

Cultural Advantage as a Postcolonial Resistance

Authors: Victor Christianto
Comments: 5 Pages. This is draft version, noit submitted yet to any journal

In accordance with Edward Said’s Culture and Imperialism, it has become more obvious that culture is a vehicle of imperialism all over the world through globalization. Or, in the context of postcolonial studies, there are dominance and resistance movement around everything in this world’s history. Similarly, there are cultural dominance and cultural resistance. In this paper, I argue that the term of Cultural Advantage which I and Prof. Florentin Smarandache coined back in 2008, can be a postcolonial resistance, i.e. a method which can be used by developing and under-developing countries (especially in Asia) to resist the globalization of culture brought by the First World Countries. In this paper, I first discuss why Postcolonialism matters.
