For El Naschie, only elite mentors will do

El Naschie's tutelage claims boggle the mind.


When El Naschie wants to learn quantum field theory he gets a Nobel Laureate to teach him. From FQXi-395, here's a remark by sockpuppet J.A., timestamped Mar. 16, 2010 @ 18:58 GMT:

All what El Naschie knows about classical quantum field theory was taught to him by Gerard ‘tHooft. All what ‘tHooft knows about nonlinear dynamics and negative dimensions was taught to him by El Naschie.


El Naschie Watch readers are aware that El Naschie frequently refers to Nobel Laureate Ilya Prigogine as "my teacher Ilya Prigogine".

Today El Naschie tells us who taught him economics.

El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Tuesday August 3. Speed increases the size of money. Arabic or English.

First part of a two-parter. El Naschie drops names as usual. Albert Einstein, President John F. Kennedy. He explains that in special relativity the mass of an object increases without bound as it approaches the speed of light. He compares this to a ten-pound note seeming to increase in value as it is passed rapidly around a circle, because multiple people expecting imminently to hold it would consider it theirs simultaneously. The money analogy is attributed to an economist named Fischer. (That could be Irving Fisher, I don't know.) Implausibly, El Naschie then says he learned it from

my teacher the late John Kenneth Galbraith, who was an economist at Harvard University in addition to being a science adviser to former U.S. President John F. Kennedy, as well as the U.S. ambassador in India.

Part two tomorrow.

Galbraith was not a Nobel Laureate, so it was gracious of Dr. El Naschie to condescend to be his pupil.

World-famous authorities on anything, anywhere in the world, are in posthumous danger of retroactively becoming El Naschie's teachers.

Can any reader identify the Indian dignitaries? They are the central subject of the photographic composition, so they must be important. The picture is from Life Magazine.

UPDATE. Zahy points to CSF, Volume 32, Issue 2, April 2007, Pages 269-270 in which El Naschie wrote An economist for all seasons – John Kenneth Galbraith. Presumably El Naschie makes the "my teacher" claim in that article too, but I have not seen it.

Shrink confirms Zahy's guess that Nehru is depicted with this photo and caption:

Chief of Protocol; President Kennedy; General Lyman Lemnitzer; Braj Kumar Nehru, Ambassador of India to the United States; Secretary of State Dean Rusk; Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson; Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland. Photograph by Abbie Rowe, National Park Service, in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Boston.

UPDATE: El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Wednesday August 4. Bureaucracy and stagnation. Arabic or English.

Second part of this two-part column. El Naschie says that the value of the rapidly circulating ten-pound note can be made as large as desired by adding people to the circle. He talks about bubbles, economic collapses, recessions and bankruptcies. Fortunately, he says (coming to the point he had been wanting to make all along) Egypt's leadership wisely employs a group of skilled economists, so there's nothing to worry about.

Zahy notes there are several other mentions of Galbraith by El Naschie sockpuppets in our SCIAM archive, including claims that El Naschie was his friend.

UPDATE: Zahy read the piece and says that El Naschie is actually claiming credit for the money-relativity analogy

علي كل حال موضوع السرعة في الاقتصاد النظري أدخله الاقتصادي الأمريكي المشهور فيشر.
هناك تجربة نظرية بسيطة توضح معني السرعة الذي قصده فيشر وعلاقته بنظرية أينشتين الذي لاحظته أنا منذ أكثر من عشرين سنة

Any way, the notion of speed was introduced in theoretical economy by the famous American economist Fisher. There is a simple thought experiment clarifying the meaning of speed that Fisher meant and its relation with Einstein's theory, and I personally realized and noticed that since more than twenty years


just as he claims prediction of the golden ratio in physics as confirmed by Coldea et al.

  1. The indian in the picture could Nehru the famous late prime minister.
    As to John Kenneth Galbraith, El naschie even wrote about him in CSF
    Chaos, Solitons & Fractals, Volume 32, Issue 2, April 2007, Pages 269-270
    An economist for all seasons – John Kenneth Galbraith
    M.S. El Naschiea
    Cobham, Surrey, UK

    It is like the case when he wrote about G. T'hooft and D. Gross.

  4. In Sciam archive you will find this an interesting comment, at which the name of
    Kenneth Galbraith is mention in another article for El naschie.

    An at 09:23 AM on 03/14/09
    The Great man (El naschie) is puplishing backward in time. The man was used to puplish forward in time, but here the instance for puplishing backward. The great man is not concerned with time arrow, for hime time can go forward and backward even vibrates. The ritle of this amazing paper is

    On John Nash's crumpled surface

    M. S. El Naschie

    Department of Mathematics,The School of Electronics and Computer Science,University of Surrey,Guildford,UK

    Solvay Institute of Physics and Chemistry,University of Brussels,Belgium

    Faculty of Science,Department of Astrophysics,University of Cairo,Egypt

    ARTICLE IN PRESS

    Since 2003 and it is still in press. The great man wrote many nonsense things about string theory, cosmology and particle physics.

    I'm interested in the pargraph where the great man telling about him self that he became a professor in a civil engineering department.
    "Few years later after becoming a professor in a civil engineering department,I again had a ?are up of my interest in
    economics due to coming in touch with the person and work of John Kenneth Galbraith.I was taken,like everybody
    else who read his books and knew the man by his wit,eloquence and humanity and I found his book the ‘‘Age of
    Uncertainty ’’,thoroughly and wholly delightful [5 ].I did not know at this time that I will be working in the years to
    come within the framework of the principle of uncertainty in the form enshrined in quantum physics by Heisenberg and
    in classical mechanics by chaotic dynamic and fractal geometry."

    Can the great man mention at which university he got the title Prof. Dr. and also explain why the article is still in press.

    I'm afraid, that he might have aricles still in press from the ancient

  5. Another one in Sciam which was directed to Jason also containing the name Kenneth Galbraith.

    Dear Jason
    Thank you for the correction. I am not being sarcastic but lets recall this eternal line from Casablanca that maybe the beginning of a great friendship -. Let me give you another vital information. Prof. Elnaschies Ph.D. supervisors were two. The first is Lord Henry Shilver who was the Head of the Stability Research Group in University College, London. The second more day to day supervisor was Prof. Thomson, FRC. He is the editor in chief of the proceedings of the Royal Society as far as I can recall. Hs is Ph.D. was published in English, German and French. I mean extracts from it. Maybe you can find out for us who is this vindictive little twit who writes with the pseudo name An and put him out of business. It is such little insects who spoil the reputation of blogs. Let me ask you an honest question: Why should such creature go on reporting all sorts of lies day after day except that he is burning of hate inside. He is so stupid and can thank God that when God made him so stupid, that by a well known theorem due to a great Austrian, he cannot realize how stupid he is. Another fact about Mohamed Elnaschie is that whether Chaos, Solitons & Fractals exists or disappears, and whether he publishes two papers or two thousand, this could not affect his lifestyle one iota. Mohamed Elnaschie is not money driven and has never been. He could be described as a socialist of the brand of people like John Kenneth Galbraith. Incidentally Galbraith was his friend despite the large difference in age. If you search in Elsevier sciencedirect, you will find a letter which Galbraith has written to Mohamed many years ago and you will find an obituary which he has written for Galbraith. You can bet that in a few years from now most people will realize that Mohamed is genuine and his E-Infinity is one of the most profound developments in theoretical physics since decades. In a few weeks a very important paper will be published in a leading British Journal and you will see that Mohamed Elnaschie was ahead of everybody by at least 25 years. The most important discovery on the theoretical level will be announced to you in a few days. Once you have taken all the distortions in your blog, we will reciprocate immediately by giving you names and addresses of all those who have been conspiring against Mohamed Elnaschie. We don t work like John Baez using scandals and who can shout louder. We will deliver proofs - Tangible proofs and irrefutable court documents. The story in Germany has reached a new climax and the court case against a certain person has been transformed now from a civil court to a criminal court. We promise you a big surprise and the table will be turned against those who think they owe the world just because they occupy for the time being an influential position here or there. When you know the names of the people involved, you will say - Play it again Sam. You will be the first to be informed once you adopt a balanced and even handed approach and take out all the libelous statements made against Prof. Elnaschie out of your blog.
    Yours faithfully,
    EInfinity Club

  6. Another comment in Sciam archive which was directed to Jason and containg the name of Kenneth Galbraith as a friend of El naschie.
    It is too lengthy to copied here

  7. Well El Naschie and Galbraith may have more in common than you suspect, according to Krugman, www.pkarchive.org/theory/evolute.html:
    "...it is no secret that even John Kenneth Galbraith, still the public's idea of a great economist, looks to most serious economists like an intellectual dilettante who lacks the patience for hard thinking."

  8. Surprising, Anonymous. I would have assumed Krugman was a fan of both Galbraith and Stephen Jay Gould. I had been aware of the criticism of Gould, but I had no idea Krugman subscribed to it.

  11. علي كل حال موضوع السرعة في الاقتصاد النظري أدخله الاقتصادي الأمريكي المشهور فيشر.
    هناك تجربة نظرية بسيطة توضح معني السرعة الذي قصده فيشر وعلاقته بنظرية أينشتين الذي لاحظته أنا منذ أكثر من عشرين سنة

    Jason you didn't notice the translation of the previous passage which is
    "Any way, the notion of speed was introduced in theoretical economy by the famous American economist Fisher. There is a simple thought experiment clarifying the meaning of speed that Fisher meant and its relation with Einstein's theory, and I personally realized and noticed that since more than twenty years."

    This remembers us with Golden ratio which is verified now by experiment and was noticed and predicted long time ago by El naschie (The great man).
