Some Conferences Are Determined: There Will Be College Football This Fall
"There There will will be be college college football football this this fall. fall. Maybe Maybe that that is is the the message message this this week week from from some some top top football football schools schools and and conferences. conferences. It It comes comes after after two two powerhouse powerhouse conferences. conferences. The Big 10 in the Pac 12 announced they were canceling their full seasons because of the Corona virus. NPR's Greg Allen reports how colleges that are planning to play hope to protect the health of their athletes. Even many hard core college football fans are skeptical how Khun well over 100 people on a typical team training play without spreading the Corona virus, possibly shutting down the season this week, three of the top conferences, the SEC, the SEC and the Big 12 said their plans this fall to play and do so safely. John Thrasher is president of Florida State University, which is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference. And what we frankly want to send is a message to some of the other schools that may be teetering on whether or not to play football. We think it's a bit in the best interest of our student athletes. For us to play football. We could do it safely and we can do it productively for them for fans, athletes and the multi $1,000,000,000 sports entertainment complex built around college football things looked bleak Tuesday. Two major conferences, The Big 10 in the Pac 12 canceled their fall schedules because of the uncertainty and health risk surrounding the Corona virus. The announcement by the remaining three of the power five conferences that they would have a fall season came after athletes began a hashtag. We want to play movement on social media. At Florida State Wide receiver Keyshawn Helton says he believes training and playing with regular testing and medical protocols in place. Maybe safer than not playing. You talk about 18 or 22 year old Just quarantine at the house. That's unrealistic. There's really there's so many other things that you know God, I'm going to go do which is not safe. So being here with my team, and all of us together is the safest forth. The college conferences are pushing back the start of their seasons to give them extra time to get ready and perhaps learn from the experiences of other sports. Putting players inside a bubble like the N BA has done in Orlando isn't feasible for student athletes who live on campus and have to attend classes. University of Miami coach Manny Diaz believes college football can learn from the English soccer leagues, which resumed play in June. Without fans with so much at stake. He believes his athletes will be careful. They're aware that they've got to keep their bubble small. They understand the value of what a mask doesn't and who that protection If you're around people who don't have mass on, you've got to find another place to be, but with all that there's risk and going ahead with the college football season. One concern that was reportedly a factor in the decision of some conferences to postpone play is new information about a heart condition. My card is that has been linked to the Corona virus. It's an inflammation of the heart that can lead to long term problems. Announcing its decision to play the Big 12 conference, said any players who test positive for the Corona virus would receive an E K g echocardiogram, cardiac Emery and further heart tests before returning to play. Gabe Feldman, the director of the Sports Law program at Tulane University in New Orleans, says If the schools are transparent and take the right precautions he thinks they can play. Every school in the athletic department has to be very clear with all of their athletes. About what the risks are and what the unknowns are. And then the athletes have to have a choice. It's one thing to play. But can there be fans in the stadium? University of Florida athletic director Scott Strickland says he hopes so We want to be on a have fans, and we hope we're in a position to do that. But you see, this is the NFL season now starts earlier than ours, and A lot of NFL teams and still have a made determinations. Yet that could be the riskiest. Part of all some schools were opposing plans that would limit attendance to 25% of a stadium's capacity, which would still bring together a huge crowd of 20,000 or more cheering, screaming fans.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time
Trump admits he's blocking postal cash to stop mail-in votes
"Another twist, it has been a largely unspoken issue dividing the White House and the Democrats in the negotiations money for the post office. It is a standoff with Democrats wanting to spending items to be part of a new Corona virus relief package as Americans complain about slowed mail delivery in an interview with Fox Business Channel Resident Trump making clear his opposition to the expenditures is about his claim. Voter fraud could be widespread. Now they need that money in order to have the post office work so it could take all of these millions and millions of ballots.

Did Jesus lie about going to the feast
"That we were contacted about asking the question of did Jesus lie is in John Chapter Seven will start reading in verse one after this Jesus went about in Galle he did not go into today because the Jews were seeking to kill him. Now the Jews feast, the booths was at hand. So his brother said to him leave and go to today that you're disciples may see the works you are doing for no one works in secret if he seeks to be known openly if you do these things, show yourself to the world. For not even his brothers believed him, Jesus said to them my time has not yet come, but your time is always here the world cannot hate you but hates me because I testify about it's works are evil. You go up to the feast I am not going to the feast for my time has not yet fully come. After the saying he remained in Galle but his brothers had gone up after his brothers had gone up to the feast he went up not publicly but in private those last two. Phrases are important not publicly but in private, Jesus is not lying because what his brothers wanted him to do was to go and publicly openly exposed who he was and do the things he'd done a claim to do. Now, he did go and people think this was a lie. In fact, the issue is not whether he would go or not. But whether he would go publicly or not. That is the

Chris Korfist on New Advances in Sprint Training
"Christi Man it's good to have you back. I know I think you have a story about you. You are Carlos now right aren't you writing like a kick bike around and you're getting a hamstring workout what's going on with that? Yeah. So we have three cars which in most families is plenty But my daughter has taken a car up to Minnesota and she usually works during the day. She's GonNa go to Iowa the. Sun's. Going to be a junior but he said his license since December and he has volleyball every day. And then tournament sound the weekend, which I don't know is legal or not these this day and age. But basically, I'm a fifty one year old person that doesn't have a car I have a licensed but most my days and evenings I am Carlos. So. A couple of years ago more than a couple years ago I saw Franz Basch was playing around with the kick bike and John Prior. told me about it so. I've become the kick bike master of Chicago I am the. Middle aged guys zooming around on a red kicked bike. My record so far is fourteen miles. which. Is Pretty good on a kick bike I did it in forty minutes but I. Go Grocery shopping go pick up Britos things like that. Throw in my backpack and I kicked bike around the western suburbs of Chicago, which it may look easy. But kick biking is much harder than riding a bicycle It's your one leg is peddling through. So there's a ton of hamstring involved in the other leg. It's like in this isometric squad before. So. He can get low enough to get your foot on the ground. So. That's been my summer so far kicked. biking around trying to get food or go get whatever I need. I. It's awkward like I go to the wine shop, which isn't too far away but we're a backpack in my backpack I got a bottle of wine in a Burrito like. This is Kinda messed up. Usually, it's like a fourteen year old something like that but it's not often you see a fifty one year old how ask you do you? Do you take that thing through timing gates? How fast is that thing go all well, I have these hotshots because sometimes I just go out for the exercise and there's all these trails nearby and you got these hotshot bikers with all their gear on. And I always like to wear street clothes just to make them feel bad and zoomed by the bikers. So I guess I can go fourteen sixteen miles an hour when I get it moving. That's that's not too bad for non motorized. Yeah. But that's a that's a that's a short burst hold that for awhile. You tired really fast. Yeah I was just GonNa say this is a good segue innocent things that you've been some recent sprint ideas and human locomotion ideas but like the spiralling nature things, right like you got one leg, that's has one job and the other leg has the other job and I know you've been talking about the Lila Somme symmetrical stop there said you feel do you feel like you get a little like spiraling action or how long do you go on one leg before you switch to the other see don't like start running circles or do you care does it Usually I do just because I get bored I counted ten so I do ten pedals But then sometimes I go let's see how many I can do on this leg before my. My metric leg, the leg that's on the machine or bike completely is burning and then I'll switch so. Something like that, and I'm usually listening to a podcast. So I'm doing that too. So I'm. To me, there's nothing worse than doing aerobic work I. Think it's just mind numbing. So between going fast and kick by listening to a podcast and. Worrying about crashing in which legs burning word that usually is enough to keep my mind off the fact that I'm kicked biking and it does get to pissed at my children for taking all the cars and using the a kick bite. I think life is interesting. We don't have a car you know. It definitely I feel like there's always something to be learned I I I was Gonna say I will say as I've gotten older too I. I definitely appreciate having a good aerobic system but finding creative ways to do it not just running and in one direction and all that type of thing. So I did your bear crawl push saying this morning. Nice and that's hard it. Oh Yeah. No, it's super hard. It gets it gets tough like it's it gets logarithmic. You know like one, two, three, four whatever. But then he's getting five, six seven I need to come up with a way to make that more like 'cause everyone's GonNa get stuck at like eight you know or you can just rest the really longtime. Yeah. It I thought it would be easier than it actually was. Yeah, for me. I would do if it was me and someone else doing push ups and it was like you could either do two competitions. One would be just how many push ups can you do in two? Let's do that crawl thing. I would do way at the crawl thing because I get to rest and I'm way better read and it gives me a chance to like the take a break and I've rule more aerobic and all that the last stick. So I I think I, just kind of a cheater way for me to make it look like I'm a little stronger, my body or something I don't know. I feel like it's got I was thinking. It's like you do get the gait cycle in between every bilateral. So I agree I felt that same thing I you know I think the crawling huge is everyone's lack down. And we're lucky because we have gym center basements but still you start cranking off pushups just for something to do and. You can it gets a little numbing after a while and you can feel the impact that? Are Great. I crank off one hundred fifty push-ups but I'm not walking as well in my shoulder kinda hurts now. What am I really doing here is it really important to do that many push ups or is it more important that I feel pretty good after I do the exercise? Yeah. I was doing one of the last traditional strength programs I down for a while and ever since all the lockdown stuff and the weight rooms have been a little more sparse. I didn't have a barbell for quite a while, but one of the last programs that I was doing was just easy strength just two sets of five everyday basically three sets of three and I was Barbell benching every day and I haven't Jack, yeah I'm getting older but I haven't I haven't jacked my shoulder up that bad in a long time like my left shoulder was dying after awhile and every time I do those crawls like it's just like it's all good. You know you just a way to mitigate the same stress and you're back in your shoulder blades being pinned. You know, of course too

"That the John D. somehow used his black magic to summon the storm clouds any truth to that a rumor yeah when it comes to D. I mean we will never know for certain of course but the theory is that D. was in tune with the chicken gnocchi and seeing angels he thought they were some consider them demons he's but he believed they were used to speaking the angels and that he'd call and the theory is that on behest of Queen Elizabeth he summoned these principalities the Congress storm to sink the British armada it wouldn't surprise me there's a story out there also this one's much lesser known that the right before he died this would be in the early sixteen hundreds but he died sixteen oh wait soaked up six or seven years before he died he actually had he ended this is that there's actually an engraving of this D. had a vision of someone going into parliament and planting explosives underneath of it this is about in sixteen oh one and he actually shared it later on with James the first of course this was the arrest of guy Fawkes one November whatever it is nice sixty no five fifty actually force all the gunpowder plot before it actually happened it saved a life James the first just so you know D. being involved with the Spanish Armada is certainly possible because it's heavily rumored also the D. prophesied or sold his black mirror the the assassination attempt on James the first by guy Fawkes and the get gun powder the cold gunpowder plot and that's how they were able to arrest guy Fawkes on the night of September September whatever's November fifth excuse me so fascinating character with the certainly possible with the Spanish Armada and certainly possible which aims at first and the gunpowder plot.
"john d" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"We're back okay so we asked which which was better to be accused of being a spy at the time or a magician now given what we know about how many people accepted accepted quote magic as being a part of I wouldn't say daily life but like the sciences probably being accused of being a spy was worse. I there's there's less ambiguity. Isn't there yeah because if you can you imagine you're you're accused of. Oh you're trying to speak to angels and you have all this angelic language you know depending on some individuals would certainly be very quick to condemn you and say well you're practicing horrible magic and this is bad but there's seems like you have a certain amount of wiggle room there yeah well. I mean considered zone case right. He goes to the Holy Roman emperor and he says angels told me Your possessed by demons and the guy was like yeah whatever but then they they think he might be a spy kick him out of the country yeah at least right or or thrown into a dungeon execute him. It's era so so that's the the the the question that one raises here was John d spy ah the answer kind of varies because it seems undoubtedly he played a role in introducing some some concepts in cryptography. Yes who do his Elizabethan Masters. He had a great cover story yeah. He did a cover story. That's the other thing to what extent is the guy who ended up buying into his cover story like he went so the cover that he himself had vast difficulties reemerging returning to England yeah it's it's difficult to piece it together because we have a guy here who seems to have been a pretty serious Christian but he was also engaged in all of this these occult interests. We have a guy who believe mathematics was the key to unlocking the secrets of the universe who studied cryptography who advised Queen Elizabeth. I who traveled rather extensively throughout Europe during a time of plots political unrest in war and so yeah this is led some historians to ponder whether not really weather but to what degree John The was engaged in the espionage of the day as early as the seventeenth century English polymath Robert Hoke suggested that dis book of spirits was actually a book of code rather than an account of angelic conversations okay and that it would be to go back our previous question that it would be far better to be charged with being a quote pretend enthusiast rather than a real spy. Okay Yeah you know I'm starting to lean more and more towards that as a theory. Here's another interesting tidbit following these copying of the stenography in fifteen sixty the three he he certainly wrote to William see-saw that's a Queen Elizabeth's key minister at the time and who was just beginning to put put in place the espionage network that under his predecessor the spymaster Francis Walsh Ingham would become one of the most formidable ineffective effective spy systems espionage systems in Europe so we're talking about the origins of x basically basically yeah like he he he wrote in writing to see so he's writing to one of the one of two key individuals yeah and laying the groundwork for a vast network of spies vast coded wooded network of spicy depended on Cotes de wrote to seesaw apparently with great enthusiasm telling him that this book was quote the most precious jewel that I have yet of other men's travails recovered and that it would benefit quote the advancement of good letters and wonderful divine and secret. It's sciences so Benjamin movie in his book notes that that seesaw was a very practical conservative sort of fellow and not the kind of guy to put a lot of stock occult rituals. He was religious probably believed in spirits in kind of an abstract sense of the word that he wasn't going to go rattling off list of angel names anything so the secret sciences that we're talking about here might vary will refer to interest far more earthly far more espionage espionage related than anything to do with angelic communications some maybe D. was duping Kelly like he used a known occultist alchemist criminal as his companion for ten years possibly so that he could travel around and pretend like he was doing these rituals when in fact he was up to something a little bit more concrete yeah. It's it's I think one of the the the the difficult things and trying to figure out someone like D is we kind of look for this not certain maybe not a simple interpretation yeah. Yes we want to a solid interpretation and I guess the the way I keep trying to make sense of it is to all right. Everyone of us has a fairly complex world view view a lot of contradictions a lot of I we believe in various ideas simultaneously even though they don't match up and we all have a I'm just GONNA generalize. Let's say let's say we all have very fairly normal brains and at the had an abnormal brain d. was a brilliant man one of the most brilliant men of his day and therefore perhaps his contradictions were that that much greater that much stranger that much more out of proportion portion to what the rest of us live with yeah. I think I can see where you're going with this that there's there's a little bit of truth to all of this yeah. That's that's that's where I keep coming back to because it's it's tempting to say oh well. He was only in it for the he was only in it for the codes. He was a spy the whole time he wasn't duped by this this this Weird Edward Kelley character he was he was the secret secret master the whole time but as as Wuli writes writes D- Didn't see the FIA is a purely diplomatic or political tool like based on his writings he he clearly considered to have far more esoteric uses he believed that the cryptography could help him decipher other ancient texts such as the book of Soga an anonymous thome that he he believed to have been written in the in the Nokia and language in another was a book that was attributed to Roger Bacon the Chemin Yeah which which is still yet to be deciphered voyage manuscript is something that comes up a lot around here yeah I I know several of our other shows here here have done episodes on it and how it works like a pretty long manuscript article as well yeah so. Maybe maybe d then he's he's playing all sides for his own interests. You know like yeah he believes in the angel stuff but he's also playing it out for this code stuff stuff. He has interests in mathematics in discovering the origins of the universe in bettering the English empire and all of of those coincide with talking to angels and spycraft and assisting trade agencies in being according to the Queen. It's all all very I mean it's alien to us from Present Day perspective yeah but it does it does seem seem to be the case that it was all connected acted him yeah this was this was the world that he lived in. He lived in a world in which the British Empire had had great things ahead of it that things were 'cause Mickley aligned for it that he himself was kind of the the the second coming of Merlin that that that mathematics breath matic's was the key to understanding and manipulating the forces in the world around him and that you could you could use some of these properties to communicate with essentially an extra dimensional beings yeah who would reveal the secrets of science to you yeah. It's not like he was looking to cast fireballs and lightning and bolts. He just wanted to know how the world worked yeah he was he was he was in endlessly curious. and that's John the good doctor so you know he's got this reputation. Now that's endured as an astrologer and magician but I think you know what we should get out of. These two episodes should should be remembered that D- was an accomplished mathematician and he influenced the field as well as physics music philosophy optical theory and mechanical Nicole Engineering. I mean he really Robert and I were talking about this outside. The studio I mean he was very influential. In the history of the world in a lot of ways we remember him as being diluted guy could talk to angels but he contributed to European intellectual history. There's actually an organization called the John D Society that I found in my searching around it's an organization dedicated to producing standard editions of his work and they're trying to reconstruct his library so they're assembling an archive of this material as they find it on microfilm. Although I imagine the they're probably scanning it in digitally at this point and I'd like to leave us with a quote from one of the books that I was consulting by our w bear and is called a reputation history of John D. The life of an Elizabethan beatha intellectual and he says four centuries after his death we're still debating and wrestling with where dis work fits into the Elizabethan World Picture and what contributions if any he made to those intellectual advancements so there we have it. I mean he's a fascinating fellow he. He seems to have influenced. Our Sciences is perfect for for stuff to blow your mind you know he's got a little bit of the weirdness the bizarre bringing it into his understanding of the world bringing wonder to these things and then simultaneously using things that we now consider every day like optics cartography or or or just basic math in the same respect yeah and it's it's just amazing using that. He's one of these guys that we know a fair amount about and yet you the more you read about him. The more you just ask who was this guy he really like what what what was the world he saw when he looked out the window and just just amazing character so it's been a great a pleasure to to research him and discuss him here on the podcast. Yeah I for one next time I'm in London. I'm definitely going to go to the British Museum and try to get a look at some of those occult artifacts and really liked to visit the site of Mortlake Hosanna see what it's like to from looking at Google maps doesn't seem like it's that far south in west London so Hey anybody out there. Have you been there. Have you seen this stuff in the British Museum. Maybe you know like I said said at the top of all of this. There's so much research into John D that maybe you know there's stuff that we don't know about that. We missed here. Maybe there's something you'd like to add that we could read in the future listener mail male episode you can hit us up on facebook twitter tumbler or instagram and don't forget to visit stuff to blow your mind dot com which is is our landing site where we'll have images.
"john d" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"Hey what's on your mind. My name is Robert. Lamb and my name is Christian Sager and if last episode sounded like we were invoking a ritual to summon angels or demons. This sounds like we're teaching. AP Calculus yes those are the words of Dr John D. Those are from his preface his his mathematical preface to the fifteen seventy translation of Euclid elements now at this point we should we should mention that if you did not listen to our previous episode road on John D you definitely need to go back to that one yeah because that that is the episode where we we really dove into his timeline and discussed in broad strokes the major events of his life. Yeah we also focused on the sort of magical occult aspects of John Dee's beliefs and in life in that episode this episode we're really going to focus on his scientific education his ability with mathematics how he participated in statecraft in England and in fact advocated for expanding the British Empire and specially developed cryptography as we know it today yeah yeah and it's it's interesting that even though you know in a sense the last episode was magic and this one is the is the science is more rooted in the real world rolled John. D. was not so firmly rooted he seemed to to live simultaneously in the mathematical and the magical world old did not really see a division like like the the spiritual the mathematical the magic it was all part of the world is he perceived it. Yes so so get ready as we're talking about this stuff. It may seem like we're going over some historical science here and then all of a sudden Merlin pop up or maybe some angelic influence fluence here there yeah now. It's really important to note here too. Though that is unique is D- Was this mixing of Magic and math suspicion suspicion of math even was was not unique to him it was it was very much. A part of the day mathematics was regarded in in some circles with suspicion at the time during the Tudor era mathematical books were sometimes burned as alleged conjuring books this according to seventeenth century the antiquarian John Aubrey and it was and it was still very much associated with the dark arts. I mean you have to think photograhs yeah key in the history. Three of mathematics was also considered a magician numbers had inherent powers and this is a thing that ran through the works of Kepler Newton Euclid and others so there is a long tradition of of mathematics and and magic kind of sharing the same space one of the things that I read was that mathematics were considered disreputable and connected to witchcraft because they were associated with numerology and I mentioned this in the last episode the Jewish mystical tradition of Kabbalah and we're GonNa talk about the cryptography stuff in a minute but try Thenia S- who wrote the book the D really worked off of to create his version of cryptography. That guy was also suspected of wizardry so this had a long standing tradition D for his part though in terms of mathematics. His lectures on Euclid were wildly wildly popular as he was seen as a leading scientific figure of his day. I'm picturing that he's like the Neil degrasse Tyson right like he's. He's giving lectures. Everybody's everybody's really interested. these lectures earned him an offer to join the faculty at the Sorbonne in Paris in fifteen fifty one we mentioned that real briefly last time but he turned stuff like this down because he was hoping to obtain an official position with the English crown he was also a Robert read from this at the beginning but it's worth pointing out the editor of the first English translation of Euclid elements and in that he added his preface which what Robert Robert Red came from this preface argued for the usefulness of mathematics like people didn't regard mathematics as being important at that time time and in fact this was the first time the public were introduced to the symbols plus minus extra multiply and the little dot a Dash Dot for division yeah in this this this preface the mathematical preface he proposed an an arts mathematical that he compare air to thumb a Turkey which is a the use of magic for religious purposes so he saw mathematics rather than magic as the key to thumb eternal urgel. Wonder Men's work could rival the gods if they could utilize mathematics correctly and in this you know we could say D. was correct correct. We may disagree on whether math is a human invention or human discovery but it has thus far proven to correspond to the inner workings of the Cosmos. It's our best tool singling uh-huh he saw this reflected in the creation of automatons those of Albertus magnus in others all these various mechanical devices devices that mimicked the appearance of life the movement in the in the wilfulness of life and in fact. That's where that his. FX Work in fifteen forty six comes into play. That's what he was essentially dabbling in. Yeah we talked about this. In the last episode apparently created this giant Automaton Matan reportedly. It was a mechanical flying beetle. I don't know if it actually fluker not but apparently it was it was so impressive that people thought that it was this magic yeah and that was very much in keeping with his view of what math was what what science was was capable of doing that he could replicate the wonders of nature by manipulating the same properties and he saw he saw things like atomic dons and even his own special effects work as proof of that he saw the th the optics of his special mirrors kind of reverse mirror that he would he saw that as an example of look the these amazing feats are possible through optics through mathematics through science and ultimately his mathematics led to him advocating for the expansion of the British Empire and he reportedly is the one who coined the term British empire yeah which is crazy and it's also it's it's sometimes you forget it. It's hard to think back to a time where the British empire wasn't thing not only in in actuality but even in concept yeah so we're we're traveling back to fifteen seventy seven here and this is kind of what was going on at the time. Sir Francis Drake was preparing for an epic voyage around the globe Washington spies it exposed another plot against the British crown and did noted a significant problematic comet amid the the meaning Saturated Stars and on November twenty eighth in all of these excitements de comes proposes this concept this idea to the queen of England that she should challenge Spain's daines imperial claim to the new world yeah in a lot of this was based around. How do I put this he so on top of being a brilliant mathematician who's able to apply that to cartography? You're in mapping out routes or understanding the geography of the New World Yeah. It's you mentioned cartographers here. We've mentioned in the past episode that that he he learned from and was in correspondence with with noted cartographer. Gerrad mercator yeah and mercator is apparently the guy who filled him in about this idea that there was a precedence for the British Empire set by a legendary incursion into the northern in drawing sees around the poll whole by King Arthur the year five thirty yeah lands that had been claimed by nations. This is where he got the whole idea he being de got the whole idea for him. Being the Modern Day Merlin and Elizabeth being the Modern Day Arthur he actually presented Elizabeth Breath with treatise on Britain's imperial limits at one point and it suggested that America's had actually been discovered by King Arthur centuries before yeah in and also that the British empire was already thing this this concept is not something that England could claim for itself but reclaim this was a this was part of its identity already already yeah so you might be wondering what's a courtier anyways raise a lot of people in there describing de they just say well. He's a courtier I. I don't know what that means. apparently it is a man that is concerned with the operation of the Royal Court and by extension the Kingdom of which it was an effective ruling body so it was in his interests to make sure that the ruling body of Britain expanded yeah. I'm glad you brought up the the court as well because the court at the time was was was lavish and you know rather impressive to behold but at the same time he was horribly. I believe in debt the likewise the the the English military was weak. The political condition was far from stable England was a relatively relatively poor nation and the idea of challenging Spain imperial Spain in such a manner was was highly ambitious. If not outright ridiculous Nicolas Remember at the time there was there was a Papal Bull dividing the Americas between the Spanish and the Portuguese so it wasn't just that England should challenge Spain it was an English at England should challenge the Papacy Division of the globe. This was this was this was not just hey we're. We're we're pretty awesome. We should go over inclined this. It's like no this involves a a leveling up right the nation that might not be practical and it worked uh-huh and for his part the way that D- assisted was with his knowledge of cartography and mathematical modeling so he instructed captains and pilots and the principles principles of mathematical navigation he would prepare maps further use and he furnished them with various navigational instruments in the fifteen fifty s he actually advise Richard Chancellor's expedition through the North Sea so that he could establish a trade route between England and Moscow and there's there's some evidence that D- Was I guess financially involved in that as well like he had he had something to gain from this trout in fifteen seventy two anew star appeared and it was visible for seventeen months now today we know that this was a Supernova in the constellation Cassiopeia D- saw this as the signal for the beginning of the English Protestant Empire and so he also instructed an expedition expedition to discover the northwest passage to China in fifteen seventy six now I've talked a lot about northwest passages before or d. northwest passage passage expeditions through it before on the show because I've done research on in the past you know like almost all these it was totally fruitless but it did lead to the English settlements in Canadian North America and this is where it gets crazy deformed his own company to colonize the Americas and there's some evidence what's that he was the intellectual force behind Francis Drake's circumnavigation of the globe and D would be awarded rights to any we knew La- newly discovered land that was north of the fiftieth parallel. If Drake had gone any further north than Oregon this basically would have given him all of Canada also D- would've if it all worked out D would own Canada how different might Canadian history history be if it had been founded by wizard right exactly and you know we talked about this in the last episode. you know a D moved his family to crack Poland in fifteen eighty three a lot of it had to do with the whole Angela communication thing and Lasky and and Kelly as we previously described but some believed that the whole reason he was there was actually to act as a spy and when Holy Roman Emperor Emperor Rudolph the second suspected D that's when he was banished from the empire and he went to a small town called Trebon in at the time was southern Bohemia imagined now it's probably the part of the Czech Republic or maybe Slovakia but this is fascinating. That's what gets him kicked out. When as we know from last episode did he just basically went up to Rudolph and was like hey angels told me Your possessed by demons and Rudolf like Nah whatever but then he's like? Maybe this guy's spy and he it gets rid of him now. Here's a really fun fact you're ready. Everybody de signed his letters to Elizabeth as Double O. Seven a secret sign of Cypher that at least looked like Deva's yeah so I mean I'm wondering if that's where Ian Fleming got the idea for seven Kevin from or if it's maybe an actual historical precedent so I've read two different versions of this one is that Ian Fleming was reading about John D. at the time indirectly got this this idea from these writings and I've also read some people cast doubt on this whole connection that Oh well actually age John. D. Didn't really use 007 so I'm not sure exactly where the truth lies somewhere in the middle but we will get back to this this whole spying thing this whole espionage thing because his incredible is everything has been thus far it really gets crazier in the episode where we're not even talking about INGELA communication location okay. Why don't we take a quick break and when we come back we're going to talk about.

"And his his angels' crying and astrology and alchemy and then in december of sixteen o eight the following what is described as years of poverty and isolation nation however it so even for someone like d._a. Doesn't seem like poverty and isolation for him. You know quite the bottom of the barrel darrelle poverty and isolation like there's a lot of him being forced to sell off a lot of his prized possessions that sort of thing maybe not the the proudest period of his of his life but i didn't read anything to indicate that he was on the streets yes so i mean like to get an indication. I was looking at pictures of <hes> what more lake looked like his estate and where where it is today. I think there's like a parts right along the river thames and <hes> you know by all accounts like it was a huge house. He's still had a lot of things i don't. I don't think he was going hungry. I just don't think he was wealthier had influence over the aristocracy the way he might ride in the past now here's this is really interesting. There's also evidence that he didn't actually die in december. <hes> in three months later was when he died in the following rolling march in the london home of an acquaintance so get ready out there conspiracy that because i'm sure there's a lot of people out there who like oh john d. found the philosopher's oscar stone and his immortal and still with us today or something or the these are fake accounts of his death. You know stuff like that. With the amazing thing about de is it's all everything is already unbelievable enough with how to even going into the conjecture of conspiracy theory though there's a lot of fun to the ad there as well on that note. We're going to take a quick break. When we come back. We're going to break into the spirituality of john d. and ultimately into his occult practices.

"Source. This is the books that were recovered from his stolen collection so we're gonna talk probably a lot throughout the course of these episodes about. He had this infamously huge library. Oh oh yeah and it was ransacked at one point in some of those books have been recovered and he wrote extensive annotations in their margin so some <hes> d- scholars i guess go and find these copies and read those annotations to try to learn more about him. Apparently much of that library now resides with the royal college of physicians. I think in england yes so it's it's kind of difficult to tell truth from fiction in some of these cases and robert we did our best when we read something that sounded really strange to corroborate with multiple sources and we did find that but then again like those oh sources were all mainly coming from these own writings that's right there of course the number of wonderful books out there on d. and his work <hes> some books with with with different focuses than others. <hes> one book that i kept looking at was the one by benjamin woolley yeah the queen's conjure excellent book very readable.
