Overcoming Failure Through Science

Did science create optimism? A discussion with Professor of Neuroscience at Columbia University, Dr. Stuart Firestein.

Stuart J. Firestein is the former chair of the Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University, where his laboratory is researching the vertebrate olfactory receptor neuron. He has published articles in Wired magazine, Huffington Post, and Scientific American. Firestein has been elected as a fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for his meritorious efforts to advance science. He is an adviser to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation program for the Public Understanding of Science. Firestein's writing often advocates for better science writing. In 2012 he released the book Ignorance: How it Drives Science with Oxford University Press, and in 2016, Failure: Why Science Is So Successful.

Overcoming Failure Through Our Creator's Science

I will be 74 years old next month. The later 68 of those year I have been fascinated by the nature of Creation and its Creator. The Torah, as you might know, has woven into it what I would call the Skeleton Key To The Cosmos. The back story is that in 1987 my employer was Dallas County Facilities Management where I served as Industrial Electrician. Off the clock I was deeply involved in the natural, ecological and biological sciences with Nikolai Tesla's as my guide. In June of 1987 a flooding electrical storm hit South Dallas, Texas where, at the Trinity River, I witness a strange interplay between the geo-electrical and the 35KVA electrical utility fields. In that interplay 37 turtles died in a anomalous manner. I gathered my camera and electrical tools and recorded the relevant data. Nine years of seeking answers from Western science only showed me the inadequacy of the godless. So I went to the Torah and the Kabbalist Carlo Suares. I began to see in my data revealed through my calculator and the Table Of The Elements that everything is energy and each "thing" has its signature frequency fingerprint that can be overridden. I spent 1996 preparing a seminal experiment using bioelectrical level frequency modulation to affect the growth of Campsis radicans. My theory was confirmed when the vine changed into a tree that reproduces self and not the parent vine. I have never publish my method corrupt people weaponize everything. So I ask if you know men of honor who I can confide in.
