I must admit that I have a great deal of sympathy and admiration for Mohamed El Naschie. His heroic stance against the financial and connections might of Nature/Macmillan is admirable and even has something metaphysical about it. He reminds me of Joseph K, the hero of Kafka's "The Trial". The judgment reminds me of the nightmarish back doors and alleys of the same novel by Kafka. I cannot understand where Mrs. Sharp's conscience was on vacation when she found that Nature's article is defamatory and yet ordered some six million pounds [holysonofagoddamn... SERIOUSLY?] or so costs against the Claimant. Maybe she was vacationing in "The Castle". In this case I hope she will not wake up one day and find that she is the victim of Kafka's "Metamorphosis".

  1. Every news story on this has been mentioning the secret, undisclosed and likely large legal fees for Nature. Given that most sockpuppets are El Naschie himself, this one should know the real number...I hope it's true. This might turn into an interesting saga of The Great Man going on the lam, interpol chasing through the Egyptian desert? El Naschie Watch could live on that for years! :D

  2. Oh, the literature loving Great Man. Please, give us also some Hollywood analogies, e.g., Hitchcock. LOL

  6. You seem to be my conscience.

    I apologized to her.

  7. I had no doubt that Jason would remove it. He's sometimes impulsive but in the end he does the right thing. :)

  8. The judgement is a great read...hope they come out with a Kindle version that I can take to the beach! One interesting tidbit is that Garnet Ord has given not one, but two, seminars at the Perimeter Institute. Granted, this was before Turok's tenure, but the great man missed a trick in not using it to boost the credibility of his witnesses! I'm sure it will come up at the appeal.

  9. These two make for a good read:

    BTW, Nature estimates their legal costs at around 1.5M pounds

    2. Jap, another sockpuppet joined Hassan putting forward typical sockpuppet's claims, e.g., the Dutch stratagem for stealing Great Man's ideas. LOL

      In the last comment Hassan babbles about Palmer and Connes - experienced elnaschiewatchers are just annoyed of such "stories" carried on by sockpuppets for years. :D

    3. Another variation on the Dutch conspiracy theme: "Derrick on July 11, 2012 4:10 am" in http://lifeboat.com/blog/2012/07/cern-found-2-out-of-3-needed-pieces-of-evidence-for-the-higgs-a-bargain/comment-page-2

    4. Ha ha, yes, but there's nothing truly original except for Turok being included into the conspiracy circle.

      What I found hilarious in this post is the claim that the previous judge was removed because he criticized Nature which was willing to continue the expensive several million pounds case instead of simply apologize. Unfortunately for the sockpuppet the judgement from June 2011 by Mr Justice Eady is available and Paragraph 25 confirms that the sockpuppet/El Naschie is just making things up:

      "25. I turn to the Defendants' application for summary judgment on the claim for special damages. It appears that at one stage the Claimant was prepared to withdraw this claim, although he was not prepared to accept the costs consequences which would ordinarily follow."

      There's another interesting claim by the sockpuppet - that El Naschie published QS's testimony, closing speech and a letter to him (referral to Tom and Jerry :D). I wonder where one can find such documents.

    5. "There's another interesting claim by the sockpuppet - that El Naschie published QS's testimony, closing speech and a letter to him (referral to Tom and Jerry :D). I wonder where one can find such documents."


      Someone should ask this there

  10. Still an impressive amount. Meanwhile Hassan is spamming under Nature's article: he's repetitive posts are annoying, especially the claim (carried on by sockpuppets for years) that QS's article is gossip not relevant to science published by Nature. So much about originality from Great Man's sockpuppets.
