An idyllic society is inherently unstable and hence transitory: not through any systemic flaw, but because of the excessive self-seekingness of an exigent few.

127 In Nature, Social Architectures are Networks: not Hierarchies
The hierarchical structures of capitalism are not reflected in nature. They are inventions of the human mind to help it classify elements of the natural world.

Local weather forecasting, harvesting, market trends, HF radio conditions, interpersonal compatibility, radio signal identification, maintaining dynamic trim.

313 Software: Programs: Neural Networks: The Complete & Tested Neuron Code
Inputs are multiplied by corresponding weights then summed and divided by the number of inputs and fed into the Sigmoid function to produce the neuron's output.

314 Software: Programs: ROBOS: Message-Driven Real-Time Operating System
Robos is a development name. It runs chip-embedded or as an application on a host operating system. It's compact & closely linked with the applications it runs.

315 Student Accommodation: The Petty Capitalist's Opportunity to Exploit
The increasing requirement for rich guarantors in student tenancy agreements is driving tertiary education more and more into the exclusive realm of the rich.

316 Sustainable Energy: Needs, Sources and Systems for Heat and Power
Energy for our homes is provided by the polluting fuels which corporations commandeer from our common inheritance to sell back to us in return for our labour.

317 Sustainable Food and Water: Needs, Climate, Crop Mix, Protection
Of the 2 hectares of habitable land per person available on this planet, 2396 m² of arable land alone is enough to provide each human being with adequate food.

318 TECs: The Desparate Need For a Job Seeker's View of the Economy
Systematic job-seeking requires knowledge of one's economic environment. This exists, but in the wrong form and beyond the reach of those who need it.

319 Table and Graph of Real Inflation and its 10 Root 2 Attractor
I originally based my inflation corrections on the 10th√2 algorithm. This is based on the premise that the £UK has approximately halved in value every decade.

320 Team: Co-operation Evoked by The Sporadic Distribution of Talents
Our higher abilities are divided among us, making us all specialists. To deploy them effectively, we must combine them by forming ourselves into teams.

321 Theft: A Notion Far From Being The Moral Absolute That Most Suppose
The wanderer's view that what is 'just there' is rightly for the taking is manifest in the modern world, particularly with regard to intellectual property.

322 Tick-Box Forms: The Dysfunctional Sub-Language of Bureaucracy
The constrictive sublanguage of a modern official tick-box form is a woefully ineffective means of communicating the needs and circumstances of the individual.

323 To Control Society, Maintain a Cultural Dichotomy Between The Genders
Nature gave men and women differences, which are both complementary and constructive. Sadly, society has added others, which are both inhibitive and divisive.

324 Trickle-down Economics: The Fundamental Reason Why it Cannot Work
Wealth has no more cause to trickle down from the tables of the rich into the hands of the poor than the wealth of a farmer into the trough of his plough horse.

325 Unemployed Need An Effective Job-Seeker's Information Source
Competition in the recruitment industry fragments & disperses job vacancy information, making the task of a resource-starved job-seeker impossibly complicated.

326 Unemployment Stats: Unemployed or Unwillingly Economically Inactive?
Official figures do not portray unemployment as much of an issue. Figures from independent sources tell a different story. My observations favour the latter.

327 Unfair Employment Contracts: Corporate Theft of Intellectual Property
An employee is paid only for the work he does. But employers, through unfair contracts of employment frequently try to lay claim to far more than they pay for.

328 Union Action Hurts Innocent Artisan More Than Guilty Corporate
The nature of the only means by which unions can exert pressure is more likely to cause collateral harm the innocent than to perturb their corporate masters.

329 Universe: About Theories: Human Observation Can Never be Objective
To me, the universe is all I see and feel that is beyond my conscious self. Its effects and impositions compel me to theorise about what it is and how it works.

330 Universe: Events & Waves: Events Write Waves upon The Passing Aether
To any observer, the universe is one gigantic event, comprising a continuous stream of demarcatable features, which converges towards him from every direction.

331 Universe: Force and Inertia: Velocity-Space and the Finger of God
The wilful exertion of a real force is the only way a conscious entity can cause a change of state within the physical universe and thereby convey a thought.

332 Universe: My Personal Perception: A Sphere Whose Radius is Time
Any view of the universe can only be as it is variously perceived by each human consciousness from experiences invoked by inputs from the five physical senses.

333 Universe: Notion of Motion: Complex Accelerations Without Force
The universe can only exist in a permanent state of dynamic equilibrium. Thus, all free objects must be in continual relative motion: motion is vital to being.

334 Universe: Objects and Matter: Knots & Cusps in the Fabric of Space
As a conscious being, I am aware of something outside of me. It is not me but it contains me. It contains other things besides me. It is the physical universe.

335 Universe: Red-Shift: An Alternative Explanation by Aethereal Flow
Some galaxies appear redder than astronomers expect. From this, they deduce that they must be receding. But could the evidence support a different explanation?

336 Universe: Revolution: Phenomena in 3 Further Dimensions of Space-Time
Space provides 3 linear dimensions. It also facilitates revolution or spin about any 3 mutually perpendicular axes. This provides a new mode of aethereal flow.

337 Universe: The Enigmatic Aether: The Bringer of Light & Experience
By definition, the universe is the only isolated object. So no single object within it can be isolated. It must be connected to all other objects. But by what?

338 Universe: Time and Space: Thoughts on 3-Dimensional Space-Time
To me, space is the conduit through which time flows. Yet, paradoxically, I think space exists only by virtue of the fact that time is flowing through it.

339 Validity of Evolution: Problem of Symbolic Coding in The Genome
Species adapt to changes in their niche conditions. But does this mean that therefore all genera evolved by progressive adaptation from a single ancestor?

340 Vector-Space of Politics: What Does 'Right' and 'Left' Really Mean?
A person's or party's political position cannot be meaningfully expressed solely in terms of Right and Left because it is a concept with at least 3 dimensions.

341 Welfare (Social Security Benefits): How Much and Who Decides?
The amount of money provided by State welfare depends on the attitude the many have towards the few who are denied the opportunities which the many are given.

342 When Personality Type Makes You Incompatible with The Social Order
Western neo-liberal capitalism has a chokingly narrow modus operandi that is essentially out-of-tune with most and completely incompatible with 1 in 70 of us.

343 Where I Work: a Matter of Practicality or Corporate Bloody-Mindedness?
A universal wish among almost every employee and contractor I have spoken to on the subject has been eventually to leave employment and set up his own business.

344 White Elephant Projects: What Would the IT Industry do Without Them?
Throughout my career I have seen unceasing torrents of government money poured recklessly into projects which could not possibly end other than in failure.

345 Who Owns Cyberspace? Those Who Grant, Deny & Control Our Access To It
When you step into cyberspace, you are in somebody else's territory. You walk naked before his all-seeing eye. Even your inner secrets are open to his gaze.

346 Workfare: Unpaid Voluntary Work is Exploitation of the Unemployed
It is argued that the unemployed should be put to work to earn their welfare. But if they are put to work, why shouldn't they be paid a fair wage for that work?
