Article
Full-text available
In this piece, the paper Deterministic Small-world Communication Networks, a paper from the year of 2000 by Comellas, Ozon, and Peters, is discussed. From the introduction, where some mismatch between sigmatoids, and intended senses is identified, to the conclusion, where the same mismatch appears in the shape of wonder, the findings are of surpris...
Presentation
Full-text available
Counter-examples to the 6-degree theory, starant graphs and cycles, comellas and circulants, and so on.
Poster
Full-text available
This poster describes our work in Graph Theory so far. This work is based on the work of Comellas et al., which is based, on its turn, on the work of Watts and Strogatz, which is based, on its turn, on the work of Milgram. The so famous Six Degree Theory gets mentioned in it. The own Milgram had recognised it contained a fallacy.
Article
Full-text available
A discussion on this so debatable and debated concept, Higher Order Vagueness. After going through the issues that make Higher Order Vagueness an object of scientific attention, we conclude that vagueness is undesirable in logical systems but desirable in language, and the Semiotics Universe splits into three other universes inside of the universe...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we produce evidence on terrorism being a prevalent issue, present a few pros and cons of applying each one of three selected criminological theories (feminist criminology, cultural criminology, and rational choice theory) to determine reasons to perform a special type of terrorist act, the jihad, and, after weighting up pros and cons...

In this paper, we talk about the existence and influence of James Beard, a very respected expert in food critique and American cuisine. We try to show his impact on our history and society.
Preprint
Full-text available
In this note, we present a few more important scientific remarks regarding the S−convexity phenomenon. We talk about examples and fixings. We sustain the example we gave in Really Short Note, but fix the way we presented one of the counterexamples to the existing theorem that we there mentioned. We also present another two generators of elements fo...
Article
Full-text available
In this piece, we discuss several issues of major importance for a few disciplines that are usually associated with the Faculty of Arts (Philosophy, History, Writing, etc.). Namely: what posthumanism is as well as what it should be, how Kafka's short story, A Report to an Academy (1988), compares to the posthumanist pieces of a few other writers, a...

Abstract In this note, we copy the work we presented in Second Note on the Shape of S-convexity [1], but apply the reasoning to one of the new limiting lines, limiting lines we presented in Summary and Importance of the Results Involving the Definition of S-Convexity [2]. That line was called New Positive System in Third Note on the Shape of S-conv...
Poster
This is the last presentation of mine involving the shape of S-convexity, I believe. We now have a permanent choice of shape and definition. It is in the poster and it is also in the slides.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Convexity has captured the hearts of pure and applied mathematicians because it is a very geometric concept. Professor Stanley F. Gudder, already in 1977, discussed using convexity in studies that connect to social, behavioural, and physical sciences. Professor Robert E. Jamison-Waldner talked about mathematical methods that are based on the convex...
Article
Full-text available
In this note, we introduce some concepts from Graph Theory in the description of the geometry of cybercriminal groups, and we use the work of Broadhurst et al, a piece from 2014, as a foundation of reasoning. We are also worried about suggesting or even creating, if necessary, mathematical jargon, so that also mathematicians, and those who have sim...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we worry about investigating the use of Virtual Private Networks for the commission of crimes involving pedophilia. Recent political decisions in China seem to point at the world leaders connecting it to organized crime. The overall impression of professionals from Information Technology is that Virtual Private Networks are excellent...
Article
Full-text available
In this essay, we worry about discussing the issue attribution: Who did what to whom? What looks silly and obvious may actually be the worst problem we have, and this is the case here: From stealing computerstoDarknets, we have a range of possibilities that may make attribution impossible, and we must still match those with gravity of cyber attacks...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we talk about the Shining Path, previously known as SenderoLuminoso, The Senderos: They go from possible local hero to worst oppressor. American authorities list them as terrorists: In fact, they appear, in 2006, as number 41 in a list of top terrorist organisations. Some say the government copied them and did the same that they did...
Article
Full-text available
We talk about how to best protect Australia against cyberterrorist attacks of the type in which the offenders use a computer to attack or in which the offenders attack computers. Our concern is phenomena like Stuxnet and Ransomware, but also any attack that has not yet happened, as for our official records, so say hacking of satellite and use of it...
Article
The Sorites Paradox fascinates people because it has the shape of the mathematical induction, and Mathematics always makes us think of perfection. It is in reality an allurement to show how beautiful human language is, and how much it differs from Mathematics or the World of Mathematics, which is also the world of the Classical Logic. This problem...
Article
Full-text available
We here propose a solution to the problem we have raised in (Pinheiro, 2016). Basically, the mathematical notion of entailment seems to be connected to the inferential rules from Classical Logic, so that if we have P: x belongs to the reals, and Q: x+2=5 => x=3, P |= Q. Notwithstanding, we would also have that if P: x belongs to the interval (7,10)...

It seems that we have all inverted in our heads because of the investment society makes in subliminal, sometimes without even noticing it in a conscious manner. Because we have all inverted in our heads, we start having it all inverted in our spirits. For having it all inverted in our spirits, we end up having a completely unfair and biased world,...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we put two concepts together: Shortest paths and starant graphs. We calculate the costs involved in putting two randomly selected individuals in contact in a controlled network. That would be the costs in terms of public health. Disease spread became our main concern in what comes to the starant graphs in the year of 2002 because tha...

Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we try to provide a theory that explains human behaviour and thinking in their totality. We missed the corporeal part when writing the theory about our new model for the human psyche: It was missing explaining that some things are physical, such as memories, involuntary organic movements, disease, etc. If we had developed a philosoph...
Book
All looks like facts, but you decide. The author says that there is a chance the names are borrowed and the situations are invented. (This series might be a logical exercise, a way to apply Logic and impress people)
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we create a logical system that is exactly the same as Classical Logic apart from the fact that, when we have a material implication, antecedent false and consequent true or antecedent false and consequent false do not result in true. This is thought of because of an argument presented by Doctor Corcoran, which seems to convince us....

Following our paper on Bloom's Taxonomy and translation assignments, and that was called Translation Techniques, and the lists of skills we presented in Interpretation and Translation, volume 1, and Your Mother Tongue Is Helping Me, we now present the skills that a chess player needs to succeed in their trade. This all connects to the research proj...

In 2000, Doctor Priest gave a talk at the Newcastle University where he claimed that perhaps something was wrong with Combinatorics, since The Monty Hall Show proved to us that the mathematicians’ reasoning there failed. We watched his talk with our very eyes. The argument is that the statistics of the show would serve as evidence to the claim. Bas...

In this paper, we take the approach of the lexicon makers: We contemplate human language instead of trying to resist its forces. Basically, some sigmatoids seem to have been created to be free of boundaries: We fence them as we please when we apply them to our assertions, but they are quite vague in the lexicon. We here identify at least two types...

This book is about the funny side of Science: How possibly outrageous things can go around for long, sometimes very long, and be actually copied ad nauseam.
Book
It was as if Russell had had a dream about how imperfect Frege's theory was: He wrote to Frege when Frege was finishing his book and talked about that in the letter. Frege published Russell's letter in his book without hesitation. He also wrote a few remarks about it. Some people proposed that we had class and set as a solution for what they called...

Zeno was around about 500 years before Christ, yet had interesting ideas, which generate philosophical discussions of high level at good universities still nowadays. What is space? What is time? What is moving? Do we really move? See why Cathy Freeman is part of The Dichotomy and why Dr. Pinheiro is helping her save her sweet grandma from a disaste...
Book
This book talks about a paradox called The Sorites. Some people lost their lives trying to solve this problem. It is a problem from before Christ. Some modern logicians got obsessed to the level of saying the problem was their lives to their postgraduate students. It enchants those who listen to it. Dr. Pinheiro is told to have solved the problem i...

Behind each door there is a surprise. Sometimes the surprise is not so nice. Some say you get more if you swap on the second choice you have got. We here prove that you will have the same. Monty Hall fascinates everyone and here we show why, so open the book and see what will to your mind come. Once more, it is cheap only because it lacks professio...
Article
Full-text available
We here talk about a study on possible solutions to The Sorites and each one of the solutions they there dealt with. Our aim is analysing the previous proposals, tell why they were not actual solutions, and then use the argument against the claim that they are solutions in a way to further prove that ours is an actual solution. Who performed the st...

Full-text available
We here try to apply the concept of Possible/Parallel Worlds from Logic, which came to our knowledge through the hands of Graham Priest, and through a French movie, to Psychiatry. We think this concept is ideal because we can make use of mathematical elements to draw theories of control, and diagnosis, and therefore also therapeutic theories. We wi...

Each language we have on earth seems to possess peculiarities that could bring us a lot of joy if ever correctly isolated, since we could be associating those with skills, and some of those skills might be priceless for those pursuing careers in Science. It is impossible to deny that each people could be described through a set of unique characteri...

Full-text available
It seems that we must really discuss quality of translation more than we do, despite the number of sources that claim to do that. We must think, for instance, about the artistic value of the translated version of an artistic piece, since plenty believe that there is independent, and original, art involved in the work of conversion or there should b...

Full-text available
Entailment is an interesting sigmatoid: It should mean one thing, but it means another, just for starters. When used in Mathematics, it is usually with the sense of saying that something is definitely true. That would be the use in Classical Logic then. When used in Logic, it became something else. Now it was about how the logical system, which can...

People normally believe that Arithmetic is not complete because Gödel launched this idea a long time ago, and it looks as if nobody has presented sound evidence on the contrary. We here intend to do that perhaps for the first time in history. We prove that what Stanford Encyclopedia has referred to as Theorem 3 cannot be true, and, therefore, if no...

We here talk about worst mistakes in terms of determining the nature of the modelling work involved in a certain situation. We use our results on a few paradoxes (Sorites, Liar, Hanging, and Russell’s) to make a point on the nature of the work involved. It is easy to notice that the mentioned paradoxes arise because people have committed mistakes i...

We are interested in creating a universal grammar structure, so that learning languages becomes a much easier task than it is now. We obviously cannot dream of having all languages on earth adopting this universal grammar, so that this is at most for those languages that are associated with our occidental style of writing. The Brazilian and Portugu...

In this paper, we will explain the relevance of the starant graphs, graphs created by us in the year of 2002. They were basically circulant graphs with a star graph that connects to all the vertices of the circulant graphs from inside of them, but they did not exist as a separate object of study in the year of 2002, as for all we knew. We now know...

The aim of this paper is proving that our solution is better than the solution presented by the own Russell and what is today the most accepted solution to the Russell's Paradox, which is the solution of Zermelo and Frankael.

Question
There is a criminal gap in Science. Professor Jose Delgado publishes about his electrodes, and exposes recordings in YouTube that tell us about a bull whose brain is controlled via remote-action device. That happens at least 100 years after the Middle East started doing research on the same items. Freud and Jung already referred to practical results involving insertion of images, ideas, concepts, and so on without mentioning that when creating theories on dreams and collective 'hallucination'. 1900s. Only recently people start talking about what has caused at least hundreds of thousands of criminal deaths, and impairments in human kind for a century now, along with other phenomena, such as criminal premonitory dreams (Revonsuo). By doing research without advertising it, such as the AU bug, Brazilian Manchurian Candidate, horizontal, and vertical CIA bug, paedophile's pin, all sponsored by the private initiative, but out of the main circuit of Science, researchers get a chance of commanding human kind as an emperor would, so that they can make us believe any idea they want, say only disloyalty in competition makes sense, or organised crime, such as terrorism. Those sponsoring their research also get to shape human kind, say by creating a biological element that punishes bisexual men who prefer a woman's genitalia, such as the Brazilian stream of candida. If all results are immediately published in any way they come, say wrong English, badly written communications, everyone has immediate access to any result, so that both 'God's people', and 'The Demoniac' would have an equal chance of dominating human kind, what should keep this world fairest. Please expose your ideas, and present your arguments as to why unfair access (criminal gap in communications, as explained) would be better.
