A 23 September 2010 post by "Issam" on yoo7's Star Flash forum. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

The brief El Naschie biography contains the usual confabulation about Nobel worthiness, Cambridge University affiliation, etc.

  1. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Sunday, October 3. Being and Nothingness. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    El Naschie name drops Jean-Paul Sartre and babbles about his book Being and Nothingness as if it had something to do with quantum mechanics. Name drops Albert Einstein and Richard Feynman, comparing himself to the latter, in that they both acknowledge their incomplete understanding of the particle-wave duality.

    El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Monday, October 4. Energy nothingness. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    El Naschie brings up set theory in preparation for plugging his crackpot E-infinity theory. He says minus one is the dimension of the empty set, but neglects to tell the story of how he once explained negative dimensions to Nobel laureate Gerard 'tHooft.

  2. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Tuesday, October 5. Einstein's big mistake. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    The title "Einstein's big mistake" reminds me of Pascal Boyer's How I found glaring errors in Einstein's calculations which I wrote about in A good article about physics crackpots.

    El Naschie talks about Pavel Samuilovich Urysohn and Karl Menger whose work seems to have inspired El Naschie in his E-infinity theory.

    He talks about negative dimensions again as he did yesterday.

    Einstein's big mistake, I think he is saying, was not using negative dimensions and fractals.

  3. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Wednesday, October 6. System-empty. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    El Naschie begins by thanking his mother and father, and a couple of Egyptian and Saudi officials. He says he came after Einstein but was receptive to his ideas. He was ready to apply the ideas of Urysohn and Menger to the subject of negative dimensions through a simple example. A cube has dimension 3, a face of it has dimension 2, an edge has dimension 1. A vertex has dimension zero. Going one more step you get the empty set with dimension -1. He talks of colleagues in China, and students in Italy, Egypt, Qatar and Slovenia (the E-infinity group) appreciating this idea and applying it to quantum mechanics. Continued tomorrow.
