The love letter of Karl Marx


Letter to his wife, Johanna Bertha Julie Jenny von Westphalen (February 12, 1814 – December 2, 1881). They became engaged in 1836 and married in 1843. They had seven children.

Manchester, June 21, 1865

My heart’s beloved:

I am writing you again, because I am alone and because it troubles me always to have a dialogue with you in my head, without your knowing anything about it or hearing it or being able to answer…

Momentary absence is good, for in constant presence things seem too much alike to be differentiated. Proximity dwarfs even towers, while the petty and the commonplace, at close view, grow too big. Small habits, which may physically irritate and take on emotional form, disappear when the immediate object is removed from the eye. Great passions, which through proximity assume the form of petty routine,grow and again take on their natural dimension on account of the magic of distance. So it is with my love. You have only to be snatched away from me even in a mere dream, and I know immediately that the time has only served, as do sun and rain for plants, for growth.

The moment you are absent, my love for you shows itself to be what it is, a giant, in which are crowded together all the energy of my spirit and all the character of my heart. It makes me feel like a man again, because I feel a great passion; and the multifariousness, in which study and modern education entangle us, and the skepticism which necessarily makes us find fault with all subjective and objective impressions, all of these are entirely designed to make us all small and weak and whining. But love – not love for the Feuerbach-type of man, not for the metabolism, not for the proletariat – but the love for the beloved and particularly for you, makes a man again a man…

There are many females in the world, and some among them are beautiful. But where could I find again a face, whose every feature, even every wrinkle, is a reminder of the greatest and sweetest memories of my life? Even my endless pains, my irreplaceable losses I read in your sweet countenance, and I kiss away the pain when I kiss your sweet face…

Good-bye, my sweet heart. I kiss you and the children many thousand times.

Yours, Karl


The magnificent way out

sunsetI was raised in Africa, and those who knows me well recognize in me the craziness of the character of someone well acquainted with the savanna, the loneliness, the dryness, the wild life, the red sunsets, the ochre soil, the infinite ocean that suddenly appears after a long walk inside the country. The propensity to love infinitely. The eagerness to find the absolute. Living in Europe, I always find myself confronted with the need to be a god, someone without flows, someone without dreams or a selfish wish to dictate my own destiny. I ate the cloudiness o the civilized state, always prone to destroy you just to put their seed inside your brain. For example, when I was a young boy, I loved science since everywhere we could find an explanation of the mechanism of clouds formation, why radio waves reflected on the F2 layer of the ionosphere, how submarines, airplanes, locomotives work, how you could build a radio to communicate with aliens imprisoned inside the caves of the CIA. Now, what we see is selling mobiles, applications, faster computers, and quantum entanglement, although nobody really understands how stuff works. When we talk about politics we realize that our economic destiny is at the hands of people not prepared to the liberation day. In my time, we were inspired by the French old music, by the English Encyclopedias, by the Portuguese dream of a peaceful, wonderful Masonic Empire. So, I decided to leave all my previous life as an old chapter of my life and leave to Zanzibar. I found three beautiful black women ready to accept a white man as their husband and with all what is necessary to feed them and possible kids to born. I will live at the center of the three huts where my wives (beautiful or not) will sleep and retire after the typical activities taken during the sunny african day time while I will sleep below a relatively thin but tall tree. During the day I will visit the small villages along my way, talk to people as all of them were old friends (I was raised by them when I was a child), behave like an old European shaman, a crazy man listening the old French music and write, write as in my old days other unknown people tried to decipher the mystery of life. What else am I missing?


The number Pi in the Bible

The number Pi in the Bible appears as the number 3, and some justify the, so to say, lack of mathematical knowledge by the representatives of God on Earth, stating that the Bible is not a science book. It represents The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Its importance is immense since every measure of space implies its existence and accurate knowledge, and it appears too, recurrently, in trigonometry, it is related to the Neperian number and imaginary numbers (exp(i Pi)+1=0), and mathematics of probability.

This number appears in the Book of the Kings.

1 Kings 7:23 King James

«And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.»


According to Ref.[1], the historical record of the computation of number Pi from 2000 BC to now has the following order:

A scientific explanation of astrology?…

Astronomy is a scientific discipline that comes from astrology but later on, the scientific branch, consolidated and with quantified theories, never accepted any legitimacy to astrology. More recently, English astronomer, Dr. Percy Seymour, Director of the William Day Planetarium and principal lecturer in astronomy at the University of Plymouth, authored an interesting book Halley’s Comet, The Scientific Basis of Astrology, Astrology: The Evidence of Science, The Paranormal: Beyond Sensory Science, and Adventures in Astronomy, a hands-on approach to building simple astrolabes, star clocks, and sundials. He is an expert in cosmic magnetism and sustains that a mathematical theory that shows magnetism is on the basis of the influence on the developing fetus and hence dictates the astrologic influence on a personal destiny. He based his work on the French mathematician and Statistician Michel Gauquelin who had demonstrated the influence of planets such as Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, on human behavior, the so-called Mars effect [1].





Global warming theory is corrupted by politics

Certainly, there are changes in climate but the same always occurred in the past. In the scientific arena, the uncertainty is on the role played by humans and the natural variability. For example, the crucial evil role attributed to CO2 seems to have the opposite effect, making more ice in the Antartica and make Earth greener. In the documentary below, a host of scientists discussed the global warming scam and the political agenda behind such campaign.

Mysterious flashing objects in the night sky

On my Summer holidays, I use to go with my family to the North of Portugal, to a region called Trás-os-Montes. At night, with the kids and some other adults, we use to lay down over a large stone of granite just to enjoy the beauty of the sky at night. I am myself a researcher in the field of plasma and electromagnetic propulsion. However, I cannot explain what are those objects flashing lights in the sky that appeared episodically slowly moving, while pulsating lights, brighter, fainter, and, occasionally, emitting a strong flash of white light. I didn’t have a sensitive camera to record the phenomenon but I found several records of the same phenomena in youtube. Apparently, this is being registered for a while… Anyone can observe these lights with naked eyes but apparently, they appeared about 10:00 and 10:30 pm just above the skies of Murça, Portugal. I would like to believe that those objects already fly according to EM propulsion, or plasma propulsion, but I have no information about man-made flying object operating accordingly to the physics described in the scientific technical literature. It surprises me a lot that astronomers or NASA don’t offer an intelligent explanation to the strange phenomena that anyone, in a clear night sky, can observe. Being an open mind, I don’t discard these objects being alien machines (although remotely). If they are, they fly according to plasma and EM propulsion certainly. If they are, we may be (or not) in trouble, but no doubts that our leaders need to be very wise… Surely there is a reason why Steven Hawking is afraid to seek Aliens, see here.

Atlantropa, a new continent

The Mediterranean Sea has formed around 5.3 million years ago caused by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, breaching a land bridge that was connecting Africa to Europe across the Strait of Gibraltar. Then a flood of water entered into the basin. Now, at their closest point, Africa, and Europe are just 14km apart. In 1928, Herman Sörgel, a German architect, proposed a plan called Atlantropa. His plan would involve partially draining the Mediterranean Sea and thus creating a ‘Eurafrican supercontinent’. Sörgel believed his plan would be an answer to Europe’s post-WWI refugee crisis, bringing new living space to people, new sources of hydroelectric energy. The Gibraltar Mega-Station would be the largest in the world, generating 50000 MW of energy. Africa and Europe would have largest amounts of energy to supply their progress, and the all project would bring peace to the world. Until 1950 when Sörgel died, he defended seriously his project, a huge technological leap forward, and even the UN discussed this possibility.
