- Pics! Program! Attendees!
- The 3rd Intl. Symposium on Nonlinear Crackpottery
- Party in Shanghai for El Naschie's 65th birthday!
The other special guest was Prof. Ciann-Dong Yang of National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan. I thought at the time he might be a hapless but real scientist with the misfortune to find himself surrounded by crackpots, but have a look at this:
He has a novel theory of quantum mechanics, called "complex mechanics", based on engineering, Tai Chi and Yin-Yang. (See page 13.) But it gets worse:
El Naschie’s E-infinity theory is one of the very few publications that hold the same view as complex mechanics.
Being not on the mainstream of contemporary physics, complex mechanics has undergone a painful experience in its publication. The publication of complex mechanics would have been impossible without the decisive supports from Prof. El Naschie (the founding editor of Chaos, Solitons and Fractals) and Prof. Ji-Huan He (Editor-in-chief, Nonlinear Science Letters A, International Journal of Nonlinear Sciences and Numerical Simulation). Their appreciation and understanding of Chinese culture in Western science give me a chance to introduce complex mechanics to the public literature. The initiation of the research of complex mechanics is inspired by the philosophy of Taoism, and I would like to dedicate this book to the memory of all the ancient Chinese wisdoms.
OMG, he's in it up to his neck. This is particularly alarming:
A teaching program based on complex mechanics at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) showed that students enrolled in this course are benefited greatly from the bridge provided by complex mechanics that allows them to accelerate and deepen the learning of quantum mechanics by their previous knowledge and experience gained from engineering mechanics.
