El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Thursday, October 28. Alice in Wonderland. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.
El Naschie modifies yesterday's middle-third construction with a random version, and says that for the dimension you get the golden section, 0.618033989...
But that's not the interesting part.
Check out the last two paragraphs:
وجود المقطع الذهبي في أساس هذه المنظومة مكنني من جميع الحسابات بسهولة متناهية لم احتج فيها إلي برنامج كمبيوتر عددي كبير بل مجرد حاسب الجيب يكفي ولكن الطريق إلي هذه السهولة المطلقة كان وعرا وليس سهلا بتاتا، خصوصا عندما يكون لك أعداء النجاح في كل مكان يترصدون لك بكل طريقة حتي الطرق غير الأخلاقية التي لا علاقة لها بالعلم بتاتا. The existence of the golden section in the basis of this system enabled me to all accounts with flying colors not been invoked to program a computer numerically large but just the Pocket PC enough, but the road to this simple absolute was bumpy and not easy at all, especially when you have the enemies of success everywhere lurking for you all way until the road is the moral have nothing to do with science at all.
وحتي في عقر دارك «مصر» لا يخلو الأمر للأسف المرير من أن ينزلق البعض للتندر بأن وصول جامعة الإسكندرية إلي مرتبة مرموقة بين ترتيب الجامعات هو بسببي وأنا لا أنتمي لها والتشكيك في أعمالي علي الرغم من أن هناك عشرات العظماء من العلماء كلهم من جامعة الإسكندرية. Even in the heart of Arc «Egypt» matter is not free unfortunately bitter to slip some of the scarce that the arrival of the University of Alexandria to the rank of eminent among university rankings is because of me and I do not belong to her and questioning of my work despite the fact that there are tens of great scientists, all from the University of Alexandria.
Wow! A good translation of that last paragraph would be nice to have.
Ask and ye shall receive. Thanks to the Alexandria University alum (who thinks El Naschie is a douche) for beautifully translating the second paragraph as follows:
Even in one's backyard "Egypt" there is always a chance that someone will slide into making fun of the fact that Alexandria University has reached a high place in university rankings because of me even though I am not associated with it. Some are skeptical about my work even though there are giants among scientists who all belong to Alexandria University.
Regarding El Naschie's "even though I am not associated with it" meaning Alexandria University: He has claimed the affiliation for years including as recently as last month. The person or persons at Alexandria University who filled out the Thompson-Reuters/Times Higher Education forms for Alexandria University from which the rankings were calculated included El Naschie's bogus Chaos, Solitons and Fractals self-citations and cross-citations with Ji-Huan He. That's how Alexandria got the 4th place in the world for research impact, up there with Harvard et al. It is El Naschie Watch's understanding that El Naschie's professorship at Alexandria is honorary and unpaid. He's not really a professor at Alexandria or anywhere else.
