Dr. Doron Friedman, a computer scientist at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, has employed automated reasoning to tackle the problem, with his work published on the arXiv (meaning it is yet to go under peer-review).
Time travel plotlines can be brain-meltingly difficult to follow. But Friedman designed a program that can readily track the back and forth chain of events – and their logical consistency (or lack thereof).
He used a simplified version of the paradox, in which the protagonist goes back in time and kills his own father.
When Friedman ran this plotline through his program, it noticed the paradox by reporting a contradiction – namely that if the son travels back in time and kills his father, then how could the son have been conceived?

“While exploring the evidence for an afterlife, I witnessed some unbelievable things that are not supposed to be possible in our material world. Yet they were unavoidably and undeniably real. Despite my initial doubt, I came to realize that there are still aspects of Nature which are neither understood or accepted, even though their reality has profound implications for understanding the true breadth of the human psyche and its possible continuity after death.” So begins Leslie Kean’s impeccably researched, page-turning investigation, revealing stunning and wide-ranging evidence suggesting that consciousness survives death. In her groundbreaking second book, she continues her examination of unexplained phenomena that began with her provocative New York Times bestseller UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record. Kean explores the most compelling case studies of young children reporting verifiable details from past lives, contemporary mediums who seem to defy the boundaries of the brain and of the physical world, apparitions providing information about their lives on earth, and people who die and then come back to report journeys into another dimension. Based on facts and scientific studies, Surviving Death includes fascinating chapters by medical doctors, psychiatrists, and PhDs from four coun- tries. As a seasoned journalist whose work transcends belief systems and ideology, Kean enriches the narrative by including her own unexpected, confounding experiences encountered while she probed the question concerning all of us: Do we survive death?

Michael Griesbach, author of “Indefensible: The Missing Truth about Steven Avery, Teresa Halbach and ‘Making a Murderer,’” told TheWrap that the Netflix docuseries makes for compelling television, but is wittingly misleading. “I do have a lot of respect for the scale and hard work — it’s an engrossing show or series and it’s very well done,” Griesbach said. “I know they are well intentioned, but what I don’t have respect for is presenting something as objective and claiming its objectivity while clearly knowing it isn’t.” Source: http://www.thewrap.com/making-a-murde…

An Atheist in Heaven is supported both by an affidavit of truth from co-author Paul Davids and a trove of scientific findings, is a decisive monument to afterlife evidence that is sure to challenge skeptics, followers of afterlife research, and scientists who are experts in many fields, from psychology to chemistry. What happens when a steadfast atheist dies and discovers he was wrong about life after death? Although he was a world famous futurist and a pioneering promoter of science fiction books and films, Forrest J. Ackerman never believed in an afterlife of the soul, the spirit or the mind; nonetheless, he promised a few respected colleagues that if it were to turn out that he was mistaken (which he sincerely doubted), then if it were possible he would try to send messages from the beyond. Source: http://amzn.to/2lFC8o6 Paul Davids is a writer of films and novels, especially about science fiction. Often collaborating with his wife, Hollace, Davids has written and directed several films. He also written episodes for the television series Transformers as well as a spin-off Star Wars series with his wife informally known as the Jedi Prince series.

Edwin C. May, Ph.D. is internationally known for his work in parapsychology. Having spent the first part of his research career in his chosen Ph.D.-degreed discipline, Low Energy, Experimental Nuclear Physics, he became interested in serious parapsychology in 1971. At that time, he was peripherally involved in a psychokinesis (i.e. putative mind over matter) experiment that was being conducted informally in the physics department at the University of California at Davis. Starting in August 1974, Dr. May spent nearly a year in India researching so-called psychic phenomena with Yogis and other Masters. In 1975, he returned to the States and worked for eight months with Charles Honorton at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. It was there where he was introduced to formal research parapsychology. Beginning in 1976, Dr. May joined the on-going, U.S. Government-sponsored work at SRI International (formerly called Stanford Research Institute). In 1985, he inherited the program directorship of what was now called the Cognitive Sciences Program. Dr. May shifted that program to Science Applications International Corporation in 1991. Dr. May’s association with government-sponsored parapsychology research ended in 1995, when the program, now called STAR GATE, was closed. SOURCE: http://archived.parapsych.org/members/e_c_may.html

CIA Whistleblower on torture to discuss his book to be released in May 16th: “Doing Time Like a Spy: How the CIA Taught Me to Survive and Thrive in Prison” A long-time former CIA official and case officer, John Kiriakou became an anti-torture whistleblower and activist when he told ABC News in December 2007 that the CIA was torturing prisoners, that that torture was official U.S. government policy, and that the policy was approved by the President. John was driven to ruin by the Justice Department because of these revelations. Immediately after John’s interview, the Justice Department initiated a years-long investigation, determined to find something–anything–to charge him with. This was his payback for blowing the whistle on the torture program.
John eventually was charged with three counts of espionage, one count of violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act and one count of making a false statement as a result of the 2007 ABC News interview. Finally, in order to avoid the risk of spending 45 years in prison, John accepted a plea to violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act. All other charges were dropped. Even though he had no criminal intent, and there was no harm to the national security, accepting the plea resulted in a sentence of 30 months in prison. Source: http://www.johnkiriakou.com/about/whi…

Our music is by this guest, Mark Stanley. From the time Mark Stanley picked up the guitar at age 3, taught himself how to play by the time he was 8, and started writing songs when he was 11, he knew he’d found his life’s passion. He achieved early success: when walking one day, he heard someone playing a song he’d written; he was also in a rock ‘n’ roll band while attending Del Valle High School. He idolized John Stewart, the late Bay Area songwriter, singer, guitar player and former member of the Kingston Trio band. “I met him when I was 17,” said Stanley, who grew up in Lafayette. “I took voice lessons from his wife Buffy.” As Stanley’s musical skills blossomed, strumming the guitar was a lot like eating and breathing — he couldn’t imagine a life without doing it. But in 2001, Stanley came back home sick after chaperoning his daughter’s field trip on a hot May day in the town of Coloma. The next day, he had to perform in a show but with a sore throat and high fever, Stanley collapsed, hit his head and was taken to the hospital. “At one point, I asked the doctor, ‘Am I going to live?’ and the doctor said, ‘I think so,’” said Stanley, who remembers feeling disheartened by the prognosis. “I was in a coma for a week and when I woke up, all my fingers and toes were black,” he said. Contracting bacterial meningitis resulted in the amputation of Stanley’s fingertips and six toes. He agonized — would he ever play the guitar again? The gravity of his experience hit him really hard. “All I did was play the guitar for the last 30 years,” said Stanley. “I played when I was happy; I played when I was sad, and when I was hungry.” The irony was that for years he’d done everything he could to protect his fingers just so he could play the guitar. Soon, depression set in. But Stanley knew he had to be strong for his daughter. Things started looking up with opportunities to become an elementary schoolteacher’s aide and to teach guitar at Campana Music in Lafayette. While his illness had caused him to lose his ability to play guitar like he once did, Stanley believes he gained a worthwhile experience as a teacher’s aide at Burton Valley Elementary School and teaching guitar to kids and adults.
