We Should Heed Chinese Minister of Foreign Affair’s, Wang Yi, Call For Diplomacy In Regarding To Tension Between the United States and North Korea

A rumor has that China has moved around 150,000 troops to the border of North Korea.  Meanwhile, a Chinese minister of foreign affair, Wang Yi, has warned both the United Sates and North Korea to not start a war on Korean Peninsula, and he also said all sides will lose if this to occur.  Wang Yi is one of those top 7, if I’m not wrong, people who are directly taking orders right underneath Chinese president Xi Jin ping.  His words are to be taken seriously, and so it’s going to be foolish to believe that China isn’t going to protect North Korea from an attack.  Lately, online and offline news have surmised that China would help the United States to take out North Korea, but I think these news are too optimistic.  I believe that China would use North Korea as a proxy war to drag the United States in once the North Korea war gets going.

United States’ arm forces are spreading thin throughout the world.  Russia is tempting to expand further West while China is going to expand further in South and East China Seas.  A war with North Korea will be expensive for the United States, because it won’t be a quick war unless the United States uses nuclear weapons.  Nonetheless, once a nuclear missile from the West flies toward the East, Russia and China would quick to release theirs toward the West, because they won’t trust the United States’ true targets.  This means a nuclear war could happen if a nuke starts to fly off in any direction.  Invading North Korea through ground forces requires the United States to persuade ally countries to go along, and the war will be very expensive.  Furthermore, if not careful, North Korea war this time could be a repeat of Viet Nam war in which the North would eventually swallow the South.

The United States still has Afghanistan, Syria, and several other places to be worried about, and so adding North Korea to the plate in a time in which the United States is still trying to fix her economy is rather worrisome.  Although China isn’t favoring the North Korea position in regarding North Korea’s nuclear development, but China hates to see the South swallows the North even more.  This means China would aid North Korea once again once the war starts.  In the long run, I think China is going to use the United States to push North Korea to abandon nuclear development and nuclear weapons altogether in exchange for China’s protection.  If I’m not wrong, I think China’s position is very clear, because China is strategically regarding North Korea as a buffer between the United States and South Korea.  If I’m not wrong, a war with North Korea in our time will pull China into a war against the United States like it had happened in the 1950s (Korean War).

South Korea should be very worried, because once missiles start flying, North Korea will pour down South and try to repeat the Korean War.  Basically, North Korea is a very poor country, and so it got nothing to lose.  South Korea is a very rich country, and so it got everything to protect.  This time with modern weapons, things can be so much worse.  Chinese minister of foreign affair, Wang Yi, in the video right after the break warns both the United States and North Korea in not starting a war on Korean Peninsula.

What Chaos Theory And Determinism Have To Do With Infinite And The Scale Of A Universe?

I don’t pretend to know much about Chaos Theory, and what I’ve learned more of it is from the documentary “The Secret Life of Chaos” (2017) directed by Nic Stacey.  From this documentary I learned of the people like Alan Turing whose lifeworks had big impact on how we perceive of Chaos Theory today.  Before I even knew about Chaos Theory and the definition of deterministic system of a philosophical doctrine, I have had thoughts of my own in regarding to things that can be counted within both observable and unobservable universes.  By reading a bit into Chaos Theory and the definition of deterministic system, I’ve come to a realization that Chaos Theory and deterministic system together as a unit which resembles a perfect marriage.

When you think of Chaos Theory, you think of simple elements that can be counted yet these elements have the potential of creating unpredictable combination in nature and elsewhere.  For an example, if you take a look at a huge tree with many branches, the whole tree does look like a complex pattern, but if you take a closer look at the tree the elements can be break down into very simple similar patterns.  Nonetheless, the branches on the tree are unpredictably formed in countless simple patterns that together they make the tree to be a more complex feature.  The predictability in the picture of a tree which forms by unpredictable patterns of branches is the tree and branches themselves.  This is the side of deterministic system.

Without a brain like a human being, yet the branches on the tree know how to self-organized into similar branches with different patterns to form a predictable outcome as a tree.  Chaos Theory suggests that most things in nature can be simple and unpredictable yet self-organized to form predictable features, thus nature isn’t like a clockwork machine in which the gears would always be turned in the same directions.  Hint this is why I realized Chaos Theory and deterministic system together as a perfect marriage.  For your information, people are using Chaos Theory to study human’s heart, animal skins’ patterns, weathers, and whatnot.

My own thoughts now come into the mix in regarding to all of this.  I have always thought of both observable and unobservable universes can be broken down into elements that can be counted and summed it all up.  What do I mean by this?  If we can think of 1 + 1 equal 2, then we can think of every element in the universe can be thrown onto a scale for weighing and summation.  Nonetheless, I also do think these elements in each of themselves have behaviors and features that create potential for probable outcomes.  Thus I think we can count up all elements within the universe if we can be sure of all the potentials and probabilities there are within a universe.  We must also remember that each element can combine with another and many others to form new elements, thus the potentials and probabilities like these must be accounted for within the equation too.

I may have misunderstood in one aspect of Chaos Theory is that I think Chaos Theory suggests that the unpredictability side of things cannot be accounted for in any math, but the potentials and probabilities are there for the unpredictability to become predictability once the whole picture is formed.  For me, I think it’s absurd that the potentials and the probabilities within the universe are endless and infinite.  I think if the universe is truly endless and infinite, then why not earth in the first place be just it and the sun, stars, and everything else shouldn’t be existed in the first place.  I think we can agree on that if we have a powerful enough machine we could sum up all elements within planet earth to eventually have them weigh on a single scale to come up with an exact number of how much earth is made of right?  I think the universe is in this manner too.

If what I’ve been stated thus far are all true, should infinite be a number which we can weigh?

Thus, I think the potentials and probabilities of what exist cannot be endless and limitless, and here is where I determine that if we have a powerful enough machine we can too put a universe on a scale for weighing.  Furthermore, since the potentials and probabilities are not infinite, so there must be other universes out there.  Since the potentials and probabilities are capable to form within our imagination — I think Chaos Theory should agree with me that human conscious is the byproduct of the potentials and the probabilities of the system we’re in — I think our imagination of limited universe is too within the potentials and probabilities of the system.  Otherwise, our imagination wouldn’t allow us to imagine the universe is limited.  Here is what I think next, there shouldn’t be a law that limits the shape and size of a universe unless the potentials and probabilities of such are not existed.  Who say earth is round and the universe cannot be square?  Perhaps, another universe is square and ours is in a very weird shape which we have no word to describe such a shape.

Just A Thought: Would China Create Technology To Destroy All Satellites To Force Everyone Fights Without Eyes In The Heaven?

I was reading an article which mentioned how China may use technology in space to ram United States’ satellites to prevent spying and GPS and whatnot activities in wartime, and I thought to myself that China could also create satellites that may act like a last resort measure in which it would project indiscriminately projectiles to all satellites in an orbit, including the ones that China operates.  Why I think China can also go this route?  Well, let me see, in wartime China got the number on her side, because she got 1.3 billion people to draft from for a world war.  If China can sacrifice her satellites to destroy all satellites of her enemies, then why not right?  After all, when all satellites become inoperable, China can use traditional warfare tactics that do not rely on satellites to win war — she got the number on her side.  Of course, this is only my imagination, because I don’t know if China has ever created something like this yet.  Of course, the United States can do the same, but this means such technology would force the United States to fight blind.  I think the United States prefers to have her satellites operating during wartime.

China Launches New Crewed Space Mission Shenzhou-11

China is continuing to expand her space program, and so it’s not a surprise to see China just launches a new crewed space mission from Shenzhou.  This mission is known as Shenzhou-11.  It seems that this time the two astronauts of this new space mission will try to stay in space longer than any other Chinese astronaut had done before.  Basically, this is another step for China to do trial and error test experimentation in her ambition to have a more complete, permanent space station in 2020.

Can Offshore Balancing Be More Realistic For The United States’ Foreign Relations?

Although the United States’ old grand strategy was almost forgotten since the fallen of the Soviet Union, but after so many unfinished businesses around the world such as in Afghanistan and elsewhere the United States may have to revisit an old grand strategy which is known as offshore balancing.  According to Stephen Walt in the video right after the break, he suggests that the United States would be better off in foreign relations in applying offshore balancing for foreign relation building.  Offshore balancing may save the United States from overspending in foreign policy matters, but offshore balancing isn’t discouraging in building healthy relations with foreign powers.  Perhaps, if offshore balancing is done right, the United States may have even more friends than enemies while building a stronger nation at home.  Anyhow, I guess no known strategy is invulnerable to everything, and so offshore balancing may not always be best for certain situations.  In my opinion, Stephen Walt does sound very convincing in his argument that the offshore balancing may help the United States navigates the evermore dangerous globe in a more efficient and healthier manner.

Just A Suggestion On What We Should Aim For When Traveling To Another Galaxy

I’m no geek in space stuffs, but I like to watch Star Trek TV shows and movies sometimes.  Anyhow, whenever I see Star Trek’s spaceship such as the Enterprise, I dream that I could be on one.  In my opinion, space faring is very cool.

In reality, we can’t travel anywhere far away from our planet earth yet.  Sure, we can send robotic crafts to a distant planet, but such a planet would still be within our solar system.  Perhaps, making as far as the edge of our solar system is already a great achievement in our time.

Talking about space faring to a hospitable planet which resides in another galaxy is totally a fantasy still.  How come?  According to the Internet, the closest galaxy is like 25,000 light-years away.  Our human civilization might already be extinct by then if we’re not careful.

Traveling to another galaxy requires technology which we can only fantasize at the moment.  Warping in space is one of such technologies.  Another one is using a wormhole to take a shortcut in space.  These technologies require immense energy, and our current technologies are in no way near in having such advancements.

Nonetheless, if one day we can harness immense energy and know how to utilize such energy, I like to suggest that we should not build a spaceship like the Enterprise.  How come?  Such a spaceship is too small and not sustainable for generations of space faring creatures.

I think we should create a spaceship that is immense in size and has similar shape to earth.  Such a craft should be at least 1/3 of the earth size, because such a huge craft can sustain artificial ecosystems that are similar to earth.  This way, generations of space faring creatures can survive and thrive for a long time — making our way to another galaxy should be doable by then.

Such a craft may need a technology to harness the stars, and making such stars as if they’re the gas stations in space.  Warp and wormhole technologies are the must have technologies, because these technologies could aid in speeding up the journey to another galaxy.  Anyhow, as the human race advances, we may be able to see the children of much later generations to take on such a bold adventure — traveling to another galaxy.
