The ideal of a leveling Oriental pedagogy expressed through government
schooling was promoted by Jacobin orators of the French National Convention
in the early 1790s, the commencement years of our own republic. The notion
of forced schooling was irresistible to French radicals, an enthusiasm whose
foundation had been laid in preceding centuries by utopian writers like
Harrington (Oceania), More (Utopia), Bacon (New Atlantis), Campanella (City
of the Sun), and in other speculative fantasy embracing the fate of
children. Cultivating a collective social organism was considered the
ingredient missing from feudal society, an ingredient which would allow the
West the harmony and stability of the East.
Utopian schooling is never about learning in the traditional sense; it's
about the transformation of human nature. The core of the difference between
Occident and Orient lies in the power relationship between privileged and
ordinary, and in respective outlooks on human nature. In the West, a
metaphorical table is spread by society; the student decides how much to
eat; in the East, the teacher makes that decision. The Chinese character for

There is probably no physicist living today whose name has become so widely
known as that of Albert Einstein. Most discussion centres on his theory of
relativity. This pertains essentially to epistemology and has therefore been
the subject of lively debate in philosophical circles. It will be no secret
that the famous philosopher Bergson in Paris has challenged this theory,
while other philosophers have acclaimed it wholeheartedly. The theory in
question also has astrophysical implications which are being rigorously
examined at the present time.
A third group of studies, for which in particular Einstein has received the
Nobel Prize, falls within the domain of the quantum theory founded by Planck
in 1900. This theory asserts that radiant energy consists of individual
particles, termed "quanta", approximately in the same way as matter is made
up of particles, i.e. atoms. This remarkable theory, for which Planck
received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1918, suffered from a variety of
drawbacks and about the middle of the first decade of this century it
reached a kind of impasse. Then Einstein came forward with his work on
specific heat and the photoelectric effect.

RELATIVITY: PHILOSOPHICAL CONSEQUENCES.
For philosophy, the most important novelty was present already in the
special theory of relativity; that is, the substitution of space-time for
space and time. ...
Force and Gravitation.
An important aspect of relativity is the elimination of "force." This is not
new in idea; indeed, it was already accepted in rational dynamics. But there
remained the outstanding difficulty of gravitation, which Einstein has
overcome. The sun is, so to speak, at the summit of a hill, and the planets
are on the slopes. They move as they do because of the slope where they are,
not because of some mysterious influence emanating from the summit. Bodies
move as they do because that is the easiest possible movement in the region
of space-time in which they find themselves, not because "forces" operate
upon them. The apparent need of forces to account for observed motions
arises from mistaken insistence upon Euclidean geometry; when once we have
overcome this prejudice, we find that observed motions, instead of showing
the presence of forces, show the nature of the geometry applicable to the
region concerned. Bodies thus become far more independent of each other than
they were in Newtonian physics: there is an increase of individualism and a
diminution of central government, if one may be permitted such metaphorical
language. This may, in time, considerably modify the ordinary educated man's
picture of the universe, possibly with far-reaching results.

"At the semi-annual conference held in October, 1849, I was appointed on a
mission to Denmark. ... I landed in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, June
14, 1850, in company with Elders George P. Dykes and John E. Forsgren-the
former an American and the latter a native of Sweden. We were met at the
wharf by Elder Peter O. Hansen, a native of that city, who had embraced the
gospel in America, and had left Salt Lake City with us, but had made his way
in advance of us to his native land."
Brother Peter O. Hansen conducted Elders Snow, Dykes and Forsgren to a
hotel, where, after being shown an upper room they all kneeled together and
offered up thanksgiving to God, dedicating themselves to His service.
Apostle Snow baptized fifteen persons in the clear waters of the
beautiful Oresund, near Copenhagen, Aug. 12, 1850. Ole U. C. Monster was the
first man and Anna Beckstrom the first woman baptized. These had all been
members of Mr. Peter C. Monster's reformed Baptist Church. August 14, 1850,
the first confirmation took place in Denmark, and on the 25th the Sacrament
was administered there for the first time by divine authority in this
dispensation. On the latter date the first ordination to the Priesthood also
took place, Brother Knud H. Bruun being ordained to the office of a Priest.
After the first baptisms, many others came forward and followed the example,
and on Sept. 15, 1850, the first branch of the Church in Scandinavia was
organized in Copenhagen, with fifty members.
In September, 1850, Apostle Snow wrote an interesting pamphlet entitled
"En Sandheds Rost" (A Voice of Truth), explaining the first principles of
the gospel in a very plain and forcible manner. Over 200,000 copies of that
little work have since been published in the Danish and Swedish languages.
"Remarkable Visions" by Orson Pratt and a number of other pamphlets were
subsequently translated and published in Danish.
It is here also worth recording that none of the missions established
by the Elders in this last dispensation, save the British, has been so
fruitful as the one rounded by Apostle Snow in Scandinavia.
Apostle Snow, taking an affectionate leave of his flock, sailed from
Copenhagen March 4, 1852, accompanied by nineteen emigrating Saints. These,
together with nine others, who had embarked a few weeks previous, were the
first direct fruits of the gospel from the Scandinavian countries. They have
been followed by more than twenty-five thousand others. After spending a few
weeks in England, attending to the organization of the Deseret Iron Company
and other matters, Apostle Snow embarked from Liverpool May 8, 1852, in
company with Franklin D. Richards, and arrived safely in Salt Lake City Aug.

did bow low before me.

David Bohm and the Implicate Order
The death of David Bohm on 27 October 1992 is a great loss not only for the
physics community but for all those interested in the philosophical
implications of modern science. David Bohm was one of the most distinguished
theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of
scientific orthodoxy. ...
In 1951 Bohm wrote a classic textbook entitled *Quantum Theory*, in which he
presented a clear account of the orthodox, Copenhagen interpretation of
quantum physics. The Copenhagen interpretation was formulated mainly by
Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg in the 1920s and is still highly
influential today. But even before the book was published, Bohm began to
have doubts about the assumptions underlying the conventional approach. He
had difficulty accepting that subatomic particles had no objective existence
and took on definite properties only when physicists tried to observe and
measure them. He also had difficulty believing that the quantum world was
characterized by absolute indeterminism and chance, and that things just
happened for no reason whatsoever. He began to suspect that there might be
deeper causes behind the apparently random and crazy nature of the subatomic
In 1952, the year after his discussions with Einstein, Bohm published two
papers sketching what later came to be called the causal interpretation of
quantum theory, and he continued to elaborate and refine his ideas until the
end of his life. The causal interpretation, says Bohm, 'opens the door for
the creative operation of underlying, and yet subtler, levels of reality'
. In his view, subatomic particles such as electrons are not simple,
structureless particles, but highly complex, dynamic entities. He rejected
the view that their motion is fundamentally uncertain or ambiguous; they
follow a precise path, but one which is determined not only by conventional
physical forces but also by a subtler force which he calls the quantum
The quantum potential pervades all space and provides direct connections
between quantum systems. In 1959 Bohm and a young research student Yakir
Aharonov discovered an important example of quantum interconnectedness. They
found that in certain circumstances electrons are able to 'feel' the
presence of a nearby magnetic field even though they are traveling in
regions of space where the field strength is zero. This phenomenon is now
known as the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect, and when the discovery was first
announced many physicists reacted with disbelief. Even today, despite
confirmation of the effect in numerous experiments, papers still
occasionally appear arguing that it does not exist.
In 1982 a remarkable experiment to test quantum interconnectedness was
performed by a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect in Paris. The
original idea was contained in a thought experiment (also known as the 'EPR
paradox') proposed in 1935 by Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky, and Nathan
Rosen, but much of the later theoretical groundwork was laid by David Bohm
and one of his enthusiastic supporters, John Bell of CERN, the physics
research center near Geneva. The results of the experiment are said to have
shown that subatomic particles that are far apart are able to communicate in
ways that cannot be explained by the transfer of physical signals traveling
at or slower than the speed of light. Many physicists regard these
'nonlocal' connections as absolutely instantaneous. An alternative view is
that they involve subtler, nonphysical energies traveling faster than light,
but this view has few adherents since most physicists still believe that
nothing can exceed the speed of light.
The causal interpretation of quantum theory initially met with indifference
or hostility from other physicists, who did not take kindly to Bohm's
powerful challenge to the common consensus. In recent years, however, the
theory has been gaining increasing 'respectability'. Bohm's approach is
capable of being developed in different directions. For instance, a number
of physicists, including Jean-Pierre Vigier and several other physicists at
the Institut Henri Poincaré in France, explain the quantum potential in
terms of fluctuations in an underlying ether.

The spirit is also an element. It is not an immaterial nothing as some
imagine. We read about material and immaterial things, and such terms are
used by men for the want of more suitable language to correctly represent
ideas; but in truth there is no such thing as immaterial substance. Though
we are told that God is an immaterial substance, and you read the
philosophic descriptions of the Deity by some of these learned divines, and
it is all simmered down to an immateriality or nothing at all. But there is
no such thing as immaterial substance in the strict sense of the word; and
immateriality when rigidly defined is another definition for nothing at all.
But we use these terms only comparatively to compare one thing with another,
and we say that one thing is material because we can touch it with these
hands, and we can handle it with these mortal bodies, we can see it with
these mortal eyes, and it is visible to the sight, touch and so on, and
hence we call it material; and what is not visible to these natural eyes,
and what these coarse hands cannot feel, we call that immaterial or
intangible; but these are only comparative terms.

His children. If God did, God would cease to be God, for even He is subject
to laws, yea the holy and everlasting laws of the celestial kingdom, which
organization is founded upon the Order of the Priesthood (government) of the
Son of God, which Holy Order is without beginning or end.
28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will
give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in
heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.
(New Testament | Matthew 11:28 - 30)
I suspect the reason so many are rebellious, whether openly or ignorantly,
against the requirements of heaven is that though they took the side of God,
yea saith the Lord, in that war in heaven they secretly resented the
doctrine of free agency being of the economy of heaven, and though these
numerous spirit children of our Holy Archangel of Jehovah managed to avoid
the fate of being born in the flesh in the African lineage, whether they be
fair skinned or of swarthier complexion, being suffered to imagine that
there is no Supreme Being, that they be tested but more accurately speaking,
to be shown unto themselves their own true characters, for the Great I Am
hath foreknowledge, even unto proving themselves lovers of the everlasting
truth or not. Lucifer, though exceedingly intelligent, arrogantly opposed
self-government according to the unchanging laws of God's Priesthood and
insisted that everyone can and should be brought back to the celestial
kingdom. Lucifer's reasoning became popular with many spirit offspring of
God. Some openly sided with Lucifer and became devils upon being cast out, a
third (decreed to be without bodies to clothe their spirits and to try and
tempt the ones permitted to take on bodies of flesh and blood on this earth)
of the male spirits of the God, Michael the Archangel, while others sided
with Lucifer in their hearts, to one degree or another.
A person demonstrates his or her true character by his or her deeds in the
flesh, according to the heart's innermost thoughts and desires, when it
appears no one is watching. Freely exercise not only intelligence
but also humility and integrity, for yea, there is God.

25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in
this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
(New Testament | John 12:25)
1 HEARKEN, O ye Gentiles, and hear the words of Jesus Christ, the Son of the
living God, which he hath commanded me that I should speak concerning you,
for, behold he commandeth me that I should write, saying:
2 Turn, all ye Gentiles, from your wicked ways; and repent of your evil
doings, of your lyings and deceivings, and of your whoredoms, and of your
secret abominations, and your idolatries, and of your murders, and your
priestcrafts, and your envyings, and your strifes, and from all your
wickedness and abominations, and come unto me, and be baptized in my name,
that ye may receive a remission of your sins, and be filled with the Holy
Ghost, that ye may be numbered with my people who are of the house of
(Book of Mormon | 3 Nephi 30:1 - 2)
