2.1. Operational Psychology

Return to Page Links  

2.1.1. Psychology: Operational Psychology [A Theory of Psychology/Personality/Philosophy.]

Operational Psychology was created to present operational definitions of psychological terms including mind, feelings as sensations and emotions, behavior, personality, mental problems, and mental health.

The concepts and principles of Operational Psychology and the techniques for using the concepts and principles are intended to help psychologists organize the field of psychology and to benefit themselves and their clients in dealing with pure psychological problems, pure mental problems, problems without physiological (organic) components.

You can print 2.1.1 Operational Psychology, but because it is one long file it will print out 23 pages or more and will not print with the proper page breaks and formatting.

PDF files for Operational Psychology are offered herein.

The pdf files are organized as rounds—as a series of books to be read in sequence.

When learning any subject, learning is facilitated by opportunities to read and study the subject several times.

In the US military, there is a simple sequence by which instructors teach new recruits: "Tell 'em once, tell 'em twice, then tell 'em again!"

In this section of Operational Psychology, each round (book) is intended to present the concepts and principles of Operational Psychology [OpPsych, or OP] from the most basic to the most advanced.

There are five Rounds for Operational Psychology. Therefore, you will be told once (Round 1), told twice (Round 2), told three times (Round 3), told four times (Round 4), and then told five times (Round 5)!

If you follow this sequence—Round 1 -> Round 2 -> Round 3 -> Round 4 -> Round 5, then learning Operational Psychology ought to be easier than jumping to Round 5 and reading Round 5 -> re-reading Round 5 -> re-re-reading Round 5, etc.

Round 1 presents an introduction to Operational Psychology by way of a simple experiment an introduction to you of what motivates you.

Round 1

Round 2 presents the basic OpPsych concepts and principles of mind, feelings, behavior, personality, mental problems, and mental health.

Round 2

Round 3 presents the basic OpPsych concepts and principles of mind, feelings, behavior, personality, mental problems, and mental health in greater detail.

Round 3

Round 4 presents the intermediate OpPsych concepts and principles of mind, feelings, behavior, personality, mental problems, and mental health.

Round 4

Round 5 presents the advanced OpPsych concepts and principles of of mind, feelings, behavior, personality, mental problems, and mental health.

Round 5

You most likely will realize that Operational psychology is in fact deep and thorough and does in fact merit and therefore require considerable studying to learn its concepts and principles before you can effectively learn to apply them to learn what are your personal desires, fears and priorities, how they motivate you, how they cause your behavior, your feelings, your personality, and both your mental health and metal problems.
2.1.2. Psychology: Operational Psychology: Psychopathology, Psychodiagnostics and Psychotherapeutics [The origins of mental problems--psychopathology, the analysis of mental problems--psychodiagnostics, and the treatment of mental problems--psychotherapeutics--using the concepts, principles and techniques of Operational Psychology.]

2.1.6. Psychology: The Mathematics of the Mind [The human mind functions/operates according to principles which can be described by mathematical expressions.]
2.1.7. Psychology: The Operational Definitions of Mind and Feelings [The mind is an individual's personal system of desires/fears/priorities; feelings are reactions to realizations of desires/fears/priorities; feelings are sensations resulting from realizations of  physiological/unlearned desires/fears/priorities or emotions resulting from realizations of psychological/learned desires/fears/priorities]
2.1.8. Psychology: Basic Psychology [The operational definitions of the terms and phrases used in Operational Psychology]
2.1.9. Psychology: Proof of the Existence of Desires, Fears and Priorities [If an individual's mind is his personal set of desires, fears and priorities, and if feelings are reactions to realizations of desires, fears and priorities, then what proof, what physical evidence, do we have  or can we find that proves desires, fears and priorities are realities, that they actually exist, instead of merely being the subjects or content of ideas?]

2.2.1. Psychology: Teenage Violence [The concepts, principles and techniques of Operational Psychology can be applied to an understanding of violence, particularly teenage violence; Operational Psychology and other similar cognitive psychologies should be taught in public and private schools to help young people understand their personal psychologies and the true essence of feelings in general and happiness in particular so they can avoid violence and drugs/substance abuse.]
2.2.2. Psychology: Buddhism as a Cognitive Psychology [Pure Buddhism, stripped of its Eastern mysticism, deals with thinking and thinking disorders and thereby qualifies as a cognitive psychology, probably the world's first and therefore oldest cognitive psychology.]
2.2.3. Psychology: The Theory of Theories [What is a theory? An hypothesis/prediction to be proved? Or a proven description of causality? An explanation?]

3.1.2. Philosophy: A Definition of Philosophy [The Greek definition of philosophy; the Operational Philosophy definition of philosophy; personal philosophy; organizational philosophy.]
3.1.3. Philosophy: Operational Definitions [A specification and therefore a definition of what are operational definitions, the types of definitions needed for clear, practical, and effective communication in philosophy, psychology, physics, and all other forms of science, politics, religion, and other aspects of everyday living.]
3.1.4. Philosophy: The Source of Causality [From Operational Philosophy.] [All chains of causality--causes causing effects; effects being caused by causes--lead back to the source of causality; and the source of causality is matter/energy. The source of causality is a necessary concept because it is involved in the cosmological logical argument for the existence of God.]
3.1.5. Philosophy: The Natural Code of Morality [A Theory of Morality. 1. All men are born Selfish, S, seeking to achieve their desires and to maximize their happiness; 2. They become Personally Selfish, or PS, seeking to achieve their desires and to maximize their happiness without regard for or consideration of the happiness of other people; 3. They learn to become Socially Selfish, or SS, seeking to achieve their desires and to maximize their happiness with regard for/consideration of the desires and happiness of other people by negotiating and seeking to achieve common desires with those other people. By this sequence of S->PS->SS a natural morality is created, civilizations are created, and are reborn in every generation when individuals learn that to achieve many if not most if not all of their desires they need the ready, willing and able cooperation of other people for which they must be ready, willing and able to cooperate with those other people to negotiate and to seek to achieve common desires.]

All men are selfish.
Man's natural selfishness will lead him to create a natural code of morality.
The natural code of morality will be based upon the natural selfishness of man and not the dogma of mystical beings.
Man will follow the natural code of morality for selfish reasons.

3.1.6. Philosophy:  When Does/Did Life Begin? [A description of the fundamental facts concerning when life begins; which shows that life began a long time ago when life forms formed from nonlife forms; which shows that life does not begin at conception; which shows that life is continued at conception.]
3.1.7. Philosophy: Do We Have Free Will? [An essay on the concept of free will; do we have free will, or, instead, do we have the freedom to choose?]
3.1.8. Philosophy: The Philosophers' Delusion [Philosophers often assert that our perceptions are illusions and that, therefore, we cannot perceive reality directly; this is nonsense, because for millions of year we humans have been able to rely upon our perceptual senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste for observing and thereby obtaining accurate information about the people, things and events of reality.]
3.1.9. Philosophy/Psychology: Human Nature [A short {five-page} summary of the philosophy of human nature. {Based upon  Operational Psychology.}]
3.1.10. Philosophy: Natural Morality: Standards for Judging Who Is PS/PSP and Who Is SS/SSP [Who is PS/PSP and how do we know? Who is SS/SSP and how do we know? Standards are needed for understanding natural morality and observing which individuals are PS/PSP and which individuals are SS/SSP.]
31.11. Philosophy: Why Do People Follow Moral Codes? [Why do people follow moral codes? Why do people follow religion-based moral codes, codes based upon belief in the existence of gods? Why do people follow natural moral codes, codes not based upon belief in the existence of gods? Among many reasons, one natural reason stands out: human selfishness.]
3.1.12. Philosophy: Logical Fallacy: Belief in X = Knowledge of X [When belief = opinion unsupported by enough facts, proof, as physical evidence, reliable eyewitness reports of physical evidence, or/and logical arguments whose premises are verified by physical evidence and/or reliable eyewitness reports of physical evidence, then Belief in X n= Knowledge of X, where n= is the symbol for 'is not equal to' or 'not equal to' and is used in recognition of the fact that not all computers recognize the 'not equal to' symbol in all computer fonts.]
3.1.13. Philosophy: The Theory of Axioms [An axiom is self-evident and can be proved by inductive reasoning/logic following the form of the If (P), Then (Q) logical argument and verifying the premise (P) by the observation of a large sample; an axiom can also be proved by deductive reasoning/logic following the form of the P = Q = X logical argument and verifying the P premise and the Q premise by observation of a large sample.]
3.1.14. Philosophy: The True Facts of Human Life [Human life forms evolved from early life forms to early human life forms to human parents who produce human gametes when when fertilized produce human zygotes.]

3.1.17. Philosophy: The Necessity for Human Cloning and Embryonic Stem Cell Research (ESCR) [If the proper intent is the preservation of the human race then human cloning and ESCR is a necessity]
3.1.18. Philosophy: Logical Arguments [What are logical arguments?]
3.1.19. Philosophy: What Is Logic? [If philosophy is the discipline which describes the proper reasoning/thinking for the development of accurate concepts {mental representations/ideas of people/objects/events}, principles {mental representations/ideas of relationships. esp. causal relationships between/among people/objects/events wherein people/objects/events who/which are causes cause/create people/objects/events who/which are effects} and techniques {practical applications of concepts and principles} for decision-making and problem-solving and if logic is necessary for useful philosophy, then what is logic?]
3.1.20. Philosophy: Refutation of Zeno's Paradox Inre Achilles and the Tortoise [What is Zeno's Paradox inre a race between Achilles and a Tortoise? Will Achilles always run faster than the Tortoise?]
3.1.21. Philosophy: The Basis of Knowledge [What is knowledge? True/accurate concepts (mental representations/idea of people and/or objects) and true/accurate principles [mental representations of events, causal relationships between/among people/objects], and practical techniques (useful applications of concepts/principles for solving problems--for learning (1) how to achieve desires (wanting people/objects/events) and (2) how to avoid fears (not-wanting people/objects/events). If P/Condition(s), Then Q/Consequence(s) logical arguments provide specifications of causality and therefore of knowledge inre causality.]
3.1.22. Philosophy: If P, Then Q Logical Arguments and 100% Predictability [In an If P, then Q logical argument the P functions as a set of Conditions, P/Conditions, and the Q functions as a Consequence (or a set of consequences), Q/Consequences; when the P/Conditions are precisely specified, they cause the Q/Consequences with 100% predictability.]

3.1.24. Philosophy: Basic Philosophy [The operational definitions of the terms and phrases for the basic philosophy of Operational Philosophy]
3.1.25. Philosophy: Common Sense [Rhetorical Question: What is common sense? Rhetorical Answer: Common sense is an individual’s or organization's philosophy which consists of concepts/principles/techniques which achieve desires/avoid fears/solve problems and enable individuals to experience happiness and to avoid experiencing unhappiness.]

3.1.27. Philosophy: Mediocre Minds [What are Great Minds V Mediocre Minds? How can mediocre minds be identified?]
3.1.28. Philosophy: External v Internal Worlds [What is an external world? What is an internal world? How can humans observe the external world v the internal world?]
3.1.29. Philosophy: Do We Have Free Will? [What is free will? Do we have free will? Or freedom to choose?]
3.1.30. Philosophy: Abbreviations and Acronyms for Philosophy [Philosophers interested in Operational Philosophy could benefit from abbreviations and acronyms.]
3.1.31. Philosophy: Distinguishing Judgments from Feelings [The feeling which is the emotional reaction expressed in the sentence "I feel ___ (happy/unhappy)!" is different from the judgment expressed in the sentence "I feel that ___ (you should ___, they must ___, the world ought to be ___)!"; therefore judgments  can be, and ought to be, distinguished and thereby differentiated from feelings.]
3.1.32. Philosophy: How Do We Know There Is An External World Outside/Beyond Us? [We become aware and thereby learn of the external world by at least nine basic reaasons.]

3.2. Philosophy: Religion

Return to Page Links

3.2.1. Philosophy: Why I Am An Agnostic [The long version of my continuing journey from ignorance to enlightenment.]
Do mystical beings exist?Therefore, the fundamental problem for all who seek the truth concerning religion is determining if or not mystical beings exist, or if they are figments of imagination. This article is my story concerning my philosophy of life. NOTE: This article is being updated continuously. Check frequently for updates.
3.2.2. Philosophy: Why I Am An Agnostic [Short Version] [The short version of my continuing journey from ignorance to enlightenment.]<>
3.2.3. Philosophy: Standards for the Analysis, Evaluation and Judgment of Holy Books [Without standards, anything goes; a proposal for standards for the analysis, evaluation and judgment of holy books.]
3.2.4. Philosophy: Contradictions in the Christian Bible [The Christian Bible contains contradictions, two or more stories which differ in details, facts, including sequence errors. Mystical beings [gods/goddesses] should inspire only the truth and thus error-free holy works, including translations. The presence of contradictions in a holy book are evidence that the book was not inspired by mystical beings, and that it is therefore not a holy book. See for yourself.]
3.2.5. Philosophy: Standards for the Analysis, Evaluation and Judgment of Gods [Without standards, anything goes; a proposal for standards for the analysis, evaluation and judgment of gods.]
3.2.6. Philosophy: Disproofs of the Existence of Gods: The Term Perfection Is Illogical [Theoretically, until further notice, it is impossible to prove a negative; many disproofs of the existence of gods (proofs of the nonexistence of gods) use the term "perfection" in an illogical attempt to disprove the existence of gods.] <>
3.2.7. Philosophy: A Rational Concept of Gods [The omni-everything concept of gods {omnipotent/all-powerful/can do anything, omniscient/all-knowing/knows everything, and omnibenevolent/all-caring/all-good} has a logical contradiction: If Evil exists as a being or as a force, then the omni-everything god is (A) not omnipotent, because it cannot control Evil, (B) not omniscient, because it does not know Evil exists, or that Evil would exist, or/and (C) not omnibenevolent, because it would not care enough about mankind to prevent Evil to exist or to harm mankind; thus the omni-everything concept of gods is illogical/irrational; but a non-omni-everything concept of gods might not be illogical/irrational, and, instead, might actually be logical/rational.]
3.2.8. Philosophy: Definitions of Theist/Theism, Atheist/Atheism, and Agnostic/Agnosticism [If theists cannot prove gods exist/theism is true, and if atheists cannot prove gods do not exist/atheism is true, then the only rational philosophical position to hold concerning religion is agnosticism.]
3.2.9. Philosophy: Definitions of Theist/Theism, Atheist/Atheism, and Agnostic/Agnosticism (Longer Version) [The longer version of 3.2.8.]
3.2.10. Philosophy: The Bel (Baal) Myth Parallels to the Jesus Myth [The Assyrian/Babylonian myth of the death and resurrection of the god Bel (Baal, or Bel-Marduk, or Marduk-Bel) offer mythical elements which parallel the mythical elements of the birth of Jesus in the Jesus myth.]
3.2.11. Philosophy: The Judeo-Christian, Chaldean and Hindu Flood Myth Parallels [The presence of similar flood myths in the Chaldean and Hindu cultures suggests that the Judeo-Christian flood myth is a plagiarization of earlier flood myths.]
3.2.12. Philosophy: The Hindu Krishna and Christian Jesus Myth Parallels [The older Hindu Krishna myth from 1200 B.C. might have been the source of elements of the Christian Jesus myth.]
3.2.13. Philosophy: What Is Proof? [Proof is support for an assertion or a proposition or an opinion; but what, exactly, is proof?]
3.2.14. Philosophy: Biblical Fictions [A fiction is a false account of people/things/events; the Christian Bible contains fictions in which Old Testament prophecies are supposed to be predictions of New Testament people/things/events; supposedly the Xn OT prophecies prove the NT is true and the NT fulfillments of OT prophecies supposedly prove the OT is true; Xn OT prophecies are local for place and immediate or nearby for time and not of NT people/things/events seven hundred years later than the prophecies.]
3.2.15. Philosophy: The Egyptian Horus Myth Parallels to the Jesus Myth [The Egyptian myth of the birth of the god Horus offer mythical elements which parallel the mythical elements of the birth of Jesus in the Jesus myth.]
3.2.16. Philosophy: The Origins of Man and Religion [Book Report: From Christianity Before Christ, by John G. Jackson: The Pygmies of Central Africa are the descendants of the Anthropoid Ape and thus the earliest man; in the Pygmy culture we find the origins of man and religion; in the Pygmy mythology we find an Adam story, a Father-God, a Virgin Mother whose Son was a Savior-God who died for the salvation of mankind, was buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven; therefore, in the mythology of the Pygmies we find the origins of Christianity.]
3.2.17. Philosophy: The Christian Bible Old Testament and New Testament Sanction Slavery and the Selling of Daughters To Be Maidservants [Is slavery and the selling of daughters to be maidservants and therefore slaves okay in the Christian Bible? The Old Testament (OT) Pentateuch--the first five books of the OT and the basis of Jewish and Christian law--sanctions both slavery and the selling of daughters to be maidservants. The New Testament (NT) asserts that Jesus stated that he came not to destroy the law but to fulfill it. By fulfilling the law/not destroying it and thus not refuting the sanctioning of slavery and the selling of daughters to be maidservants Jesus effectively sanctioned slavery and the selling of daughters to be maidservants.]
3.2.18. Philosophy: Human Sacrifice in the Christian Bible [Is human sacrifice sanctioned in the Christian Bible Old Testament? Was not the execution of Jesus a sacrifice in the Christian Bible New Testament?]
3.2.19. Philosophy: Is Genesis An Original Jewish Scripture? [Is the Jewish/Christian Book of Genesis in the Bible inspired by gods {Elohim} and therefore an original Jewish work or is it a copy of earlier myths and thereby a man-made forgery?]
3.2.20. Philosophy: Does the Christian Bible God Not Value Unborn Fetuses and Newborns? [Biblical passages supposedly inspired by or otherwise direct quotes from the Christian God clearly show that this God imposes no value to unborn fetuses and newborn children.]
3.2.21. Philosophy: Pascal's Wager and the Odds of Guessing Right [Pascal's Wager is between the choice of belief in the existence of gods and nonbelief in the existence of gods, and the claim of believers is that belief is the safer bet, because if there is life after death then the believer stands to win eternal happiness but the nonbeliever stands to lose eternal happiness and gain eternal torment; if (A) there are seven major world religions [Huston Smith: The Religions of Man], (B) one and only one of these religions is the one-and-only true religion, and (C) guessing the right religion will gain you eternal happiness and guessing the wrong religion will gain you eternal torment, what are the odds of guessing which is the right/true/one-and-only religion?]
3.2.22. Philosophy: What Was the Sequence of the Execution of Jesus? [The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in the New Testament of the Christian Bible describe one sequence for the execution of Jesus--by crucifixion--while the book of Acts describes a different sequence for the execution of Jesus--by unspecified execution then by being hanged upon a tree; since both descriptions cannot be true, herein is a serious biblical contradiction.]
3.2.23. Philosophy: Religious Morality vs. Natural Morality: Which Is More Effective in Preventing Crime and/or Immoral Behavior? A Survey of US Prison Inmates [Are religionists more moral than nonreligionists including atheists and agnostics? Can statistics re: the religious affiliation of US prison inmates provide an answer?]
3.2.24. Philosophy: Is Islam a Peaceful or Violent Religion? [Verses in the Koran, the holy book of Islam, direct Muslims to actions which can be interpreted as violent, including the killing and maiming of infidels, those who do not believe in Allah, Islam, Mohammed as a Messenger from Allah, or the Koran, and including the subordination and beating of women.]
3.2.25. Philosophy: Evidence of the Deism of the US Founders [Were the US Founders, the men who created the US Constitution in the US Constitutional Convention, Christians, and, thus did they intend that the US was to be founded on Christian principles? Or were the Founders Deists, who, because of their awareness of the Christian abuses such as the Inquisition which were forced up innocent people when Christians were allied with or otherwise in control of European governments, distrusted Christians, and who therefore intended to found the US on Deistic principles to ensure that Christians could not gain control of the US government?]
3.2.26. Philosophy: Christians and Public Prayer/Worship [Freedom of religion ought to mean freedom from religion. Out of common courtesy, Christians ought not to inflict their religion upon others who do not share their religion and their religious views. In the Book of St. Matthew in the Christian Bible, the Christian mangod/godman, Jesus, strictly forbids Christians from praying in public, from practicing their religion in public, and instructs them to pray in private, and to practice their religion in private.]
3.2.27. Philosophy: The Fundamental Problem of Religion [Religion is a philosophy which includes a belief in the existence of gods--supernatural or mystical beings; the fundamental problem of religion is proving that gods exist.]
3.2.28. Philosophy: The Theology of Christianity [The Old Testament of the Christian Bible, the Christian holy book, teaches that man is a sinner, a piece of crap in need of salvation from his sins by a dying/rising savior-god, and the New Testament teaches that the one-and-only true dying/rising savior-god is Jesus; Christianity rises and falls by the belief that humans are sinners/pieces of crap in need of salvation by a dying/rising savior-god named Jesus; if humans are not sinners/pieces of crap, then a dying/rising savior-god is not needed, therefore the dying/rising savior-god named Jesus is not needed.]
3.2.29. Philosophy: Is the US Founded upon Christian Principles? [Christians claim that the US was founded by Christians upon Christian principles which have Biblical sources. What are the principles Christians claim are unique Christian principles used by the Founders to found the US?]
3.2.30. Philosophy: Christianity and the Bible on Abortion [Is abortion listed as a sin or a capital crime in the Bible?]
3.2.31. Philosophy: Public Prayer Is Public Practice of Religion and Forbidden by the US Constitution [Commentary on a quote from Samuel Thompson]
3.2.32. Philosophy: Does Public Practice of Religion Injure Innocent Individuals? [If freedom of religion is implied in the US Constitution 1st Amendment, then so also is implied freedom from religion. Freedoms--liberties--include both freedoms of and freedoms from, and one of the freedoms from is freedom from religion. When an individual's freedom from religion is violated, infringed, then his liberty is infringed, and he suffers therefore an injury.]
3.2.33. Philosophy: The US Constitution and the US Treaty of Tripoli Prove The US Was Not Founded upon the Christian Religion or upon Christian Principles [US Const. Art. VI Sect 2 requires the wordings of treaties to be included in US Law; The US Treaty of Tripoli Art. 11 states the US Government was not founded on the Christian religion, therefore the US Government is required to deny the US/US Government was  founded on the Christian religion.]
3.2.34. Philosophy: The Essence of Buddhism: The Four Noble Truths [When Buddhism is stripped of its three major mystical elements common to Eastern religions, Samsara—The Wheel of Birth and Rebirth, Karma—What Works Are Done and What Is Learned in This Life Accumulates and Applies inre One's Station/Position in the Next Life, Nirvana—The Release from Samsara, the philosophy that remains is based upon The Four Noble Truths—The Essence of Pure Buddhism.]
3.2.35. Philosophy: Buddhism as a Cognitive Psychology [Pure Buddhism, stripped of its Eastern mysticism, deals with thinking and thinking disorders and thereby qualifies as a cognitive psychology, probably the world's first and therefore oldest cognitive psychology.]
3.2.25. Philosophy: The Bible Is Not A Reliable Source of Information Inre God or the gods [The Bible contains contradictions (multiple stories about the same people, objects and events but with conflicting details), historical inaccuracies, scientific inaccuracies, parallels (similar if not identical people, objects and events to those found in other religions/mythologies), and fictions (prophecies that either did not predict the future or otherwise were not relevant to the people, objects and event to which they were supposed to be relevant) that reasonable humans have a right to expect would not be found in so-called holy books thaat supposedly were written by or supervised by God (Yahweh)/the gods (Elohim)]
3.2.26. Philosophy: Evolution vs Creationism [The Bible is not a reliable source of information inre God (Yahweh) or the gods (Elohim) and is therefore not a source of information inre creationism but evolution has physical evidence that serves as proof that evolution has occurred once life began on the Earth. Evolution makes no claims inre abiogenesis or the formation of life from non-life; instead, evolution describes the fact that both macroevolution and microevolution have occurred in the past, are occurring in the present, and are expected to occur in the future.]

Many thanks to those who supported me and who voted for me in the NH 2002 Republican Gubernatorial Primary Election. The results showed a surprisingly close election: Craig Benson won by only 55,000 votes! The political solutions to political issues I presented are still valid and need to be publicized and enacted and implemented. You can help by sending letter-to-the-editors championing the political solutions you favor, and you can lobby your state and federal representatives and senators to accept and to act upon the political solutions you favor. Again, many thanks for your support.

    Robert Howard Kroepel

    Copyright © 2000

    Chorus: I'm coming home to you, New Hampshire.
    I'm coming home, where the air is clear.
    I'm coming home to see your face once more.
    Please open wide your welcome door.

    Verse 1: In the spring I love your lilacs,
    In the summer, your sea and lakes,
    In the fall, the autumn wonder,
    And the snow that winter makes.

    Chorus: I'm coming home to you, New Hampshire.
    I'm coming home, where the air is clear.
    I'm coming home to see your face once more.
    Please open wide your welcome door.

    Verse 2: Most of all I love your people.
    I love their smiles and the way they care.
    I want to see my friends and fam'ly,
    And find the love I need to share.

    6.1.2. Operational Physics: The Acronyms of Operational Physics [A shortlist of the acronyms used for Operational Physics (OpPhys)]
    6.1.3. Physics: The Theory of Invariable Time-Intervals [TITI] [The essence of time measurement is the time-interval. Einstein developed the Special and General Theories of Relativity using as one of his premises variable time-intervals as found in clocks which are affected by changes of velocity and/or gravity. What happens to Special and General Theories of Relativity when Einstein's variable time-interval premise is replaced a premise which features invariable time-intervals as found in clocks which are motion-sensing and gravity-sensing and self-adjusting to compensate for changes of velocity and/or gravity or in clocks which are synchronized by radio signals from a master clock?]
    6.1.4. Physics: Confirmation of the Theory of Invariable Time-Intervals [One of the criteria for the confirmation of the Theory of Invariable Time-Intervals (TITI) would be the actual existence and practical usage of invariable time-interval clocks (ITICs). ITICs have been found to be used for the GPS (Global Positioning System), thus confirming the TITI.]
    6.1.5. Physics: Can Physicists Detect Absolute Motion (AM), Absolute Rest (AR), and/or the Absolute Rest Reference Frame (ARRF)? [In theory, a definition of time can be used to detect AM/AR/the ARRF.]

    6.1.7. Operational Physics: The Einstein Railway System and the Speed of Light and the Determination of Simultaneity [Einstein's original diagram of his railways system consisting of a railway embankment with observer M and a railway carriage with observer M' and newer diagrams of the Einstein Railway System relevant to the speed of light and the determination of simultaneity.]
    6.1.8. Operational Physics: The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle/HUP [Do causality and therefore determinism occur at QM scalar levels? Yes, they do!]
    6.1.9. Operational Physics: Simultaneity [What is simultaneity? What is Einstein's conception/principle of simultaneity? What is the modern definition of simultaneity? What is the relationship, if any, between simultaneity and the speed of light? What are the modern criteria for the determination of simultaneity?]

Operational Physics: The K and K' Diagrams [Diagrams of the changes of the lengths of rulers and the rates of ticking of clocks which are accelerated from an initial reference frame K to a new reference frame K'; clicking the link will open a PDF file with the relevant text and diagrams.]
    6.1.13. Operational Physics: The Orbiting Stars Diagrams and Movies [Diagrams—which are graphs—and iMovies which illustrate (1) the fact that light has an absolute velocity (AV) of 186, 000 mps, i.e. AV = 186,000 mps, relative to the spacepoints at which light is emitted from lightsources, (2) the fact that the motion (velocity) of a lightsource does not affect the motion of light, (3) the fact that the spacepoints at which light is emitted from lightsources have no motion and are therefore at-rest at AV = 0 mps, (4) the fact that all lightrays moving at AV = 186,000 mps in the same direction of motion have the same relative velocity (RV) and that RV = 0 mps, (5) the fact that lightrays which have an AV = 186,000 mps relative to their emission spacepoints and an RV = 0 mps relative to each other are all in the same reference frame—the reference frame of light—the light reference frame (LRF), and (6) the fact that the emission spacepoints are at-rest/not-in-motion and therefore all emission spacepoints have an AV = 0 mps which is also an RV = 0 mps which means that all emission spacepoints are at absolute rest (AR) in the same reference frame, the absolute rest reference frame (ARRF).]
    6.1.14. Operational Physics: The Einstein Railroad Diagrams [Diagrams and iMovies which, using adaptations of Einstein's Railroad Drawing from Relativity, 1961 edition, illustrate the Twin Light Motion Facts, TLMFs, which are (1) light travels at an AV = c or 186,000 mps relative to the spacepoint at which it was emitted and (2) the motion of a lightsource does NOT affect the motion of light which are fundamental to the objective truth/reality inre the motion of light, and the fact that the motion of light for Einstein's conception of simultaneity has to be an absolute velocity, AV, of c relative to the spacepoints at which lightpulses were emitted from their lightsources and NOT relative to the lightsources, and, therefore, the motion of light past Einstein's Train has to be and therefore is a relative velocity, RV, which, depending on direction of motion, but assuming that the lightpulses are in motion parallel to the motion of the Train, has to be RV = ± c instead of AV = c, which means the speed of light is NOT the same for any and all observers in any and all reference frames, a refutation of one of Einstein's postulates for special relativity.]
    6.1.15 Operational Physics (2011): The Law of Physical States and The Corollaries of the Law of Physical States. [The Law of Physical States replaces The Law of Inertia and The Corollaries of The Law of Physical States replaces The Corollaries of the Law of Inertia. A physical state includes any and all observable/measurable characteristics of an entity, a person or object which/which is comprised of matter/energy (m/e), including size, shape, mass (weight), color, m/e composition, oscillation (rate of ticking for clocks), motion (inertial state: being at-rest or in-motion), location in space (position), timepoint (time mark on a continuum of time), duration (age, endurance), etc. The Law of Physical States and The Corollaries of The Law of Physical States describe causality as forces, which are forms of m/e, as causes causing as effects (A) changes in the physical states of entities or (B) new entities from pre-existing m/e and determinism as causes determining effects, effects are determined by causes, etc.]
    6.1.16 Operational Physics (2011): Speculations 1. [Speculations/Brainstormings inre simultaneity, timepoints, the universal m/e configuration, the continuum of universal time, 3D holograms, causality, causal relationship v coincidental relationship, determinism, causality/determinism sequence, If P, Then Q logical arguments, temporal measurement not causal, spatial measurement not causal, time not a causal component of spacetime, space not a causal component of spacetime, therefore spacetime is not comprised of space or time, and, therefore, spacetime can only be comprised of m/e, which is causal.]
    6.1.17 Operational Physics (2011): Speculations 2. [Absolute simultaneity, the occurrences of events on different reference bodies at the same timepoint, would require absolute time clocks (ATCs, ITICs, non-distortable clocks) which are "independent of the state of motion of [their bodies] of reference" [Einstein, Relativity, 1961 edition, p. 27] for the identical timepoint needed for determining absolute simultaneity.]
    6.1.18 Operational Physics (2011): Speculations 3. [The Operational Physics (OpPhys) Theory of Time, distortable v non-distortable/adjustable rulers and clocks, the text-only illustrations (Figs 1 and 2) of the Theory of the Spacegrid using only those characters available on a typical computer keyboard, the relative velocity (RV), measured velocity (MV), The Law of Physical States and The Corollaries of the Law of Physical States (earlier versions), The Extrapolation Theory.]
    6.1.19 Operational Physics (2012) The Einstein Light Motion Paradox. [Inre Relativity, 1961 edition, Chapter IX, Einstein's Fig. 1 Railroad Drawing,
    Einstein RR 1c.0.jpg
    Fig. 1 (Redrawn),
    suggests that light travels at a relative velocity (RV) of 1.00c or 186,000 mps relative to the Embankment but an an RV ≠ 1.00c relative to the Train; this intuition conflicts with the relativistic axiom that light travels at RV = 1.00c inre all observers regardless of their reference frames/bodies, and, thus, there is the Einstein Light Motion Paradox inre the motion of light inre the Embankment and the Train inre Fig. 1; the Michelson-Morley Interferometer Experiment (MMIX) Result 2: The speed of light is the same for all observers is thus false.]
    6.1.20 Operational Physics (2012): Timepiece Timerates and Absolute Velocity (AV). [The timerates of timepieces (clocks, watches, etc., used to measure time) can be used to determine if or not a condition of absolute velocity (AV) of 0.00c (absolute rest, AR) is a reality, e.g. AV = 0.00c.]
    6.1.21 Operational Physics (2012): The Link between Time and the Universal Matter-Energy System [There is a link between time and the universal matter-energy (m/e) configuration that reveals the sequence of events, the simultaneities of events, the causalities of events, and the changerates (rates of change) of events.]
    6.1.22 Operational Physics (2012): Converting The Law of Inertia to The Law of Causality [The Law of Inertia can be converted to The Law of Causality.]

    6.2.2. Physics: A Concept of the Universe: Three Realities, Three Infinities, and One Finity [The universe consists of three realities--(1) the spatial reality: space, (2) the temporal reality: time, and (3) the physical reality: matter and energy, and their infinities--the unbounded and limitless space, the never-begun and never-ending continuum of time, and the indestructibility of matter/energy, and the finity of matter/energy: the finite quantity of matter/energy.]
    6.2.3. Physics: The Theory of the Practical Limits of the Inverse Square Law [In theory, there is no limit to the ranges of force fields, such as gravitational fields as described by the inverse square law wherein the strength of a field is inversely proportional to the distance from the field source, or sources; but in practical reality there is a point which is a limit to the field range wherein the force of or in a force field is so weak it cannot cause observable and therefore measurable effects upon physical phenomena, upon matter/energy, and, therefore, there is a practical limit to the range of force fields, including gravitational and electromagnetic fields.]
    6.2.4. Physics: The Theory of the Perfect Observer [Quantum Mechanics, QM, says we cannot observe and not disturb small stuff, and, therefore, we cannot  determine both the velocity and position of individual small stuffs, and, therefore, we cannot determine causality among small stuffs and, therefore, we cannot make deterministic predictions of individual small stuffs, and, therefore, we have to make probibalistic predictions instead of deterministic predictions. What if we were Perfect Observers, able to to observe and not disturb, and, therefore, be able to determine determinism, properly called causality, at the level of individual small stuffs?]
    6.2.5. Physics: The Who? What? Where? When? and Why? of Physics [Who?/What?/Where?/When?/Why? are the people/things/events in physics who/which are the answers to the questions of Who?/What?/Where?/When?/Why? in physics?]

    6.2.9. Physics: If P, Then Q Logical Arguments and Causality [If P, Then Q logical arguments are descriptions and predictions of causality—the sequence in which Ps which are conditions and causes cause Qs which are consequences and effects.]
