This e-book is NOT science but just a collection of
intuitive hypothetical hypotheses from a very average non-
scientist whose nom de plume "Joseph Sixpack" best describes
who he is: just a very average person.
From the scientist's point of view, this site is a classic
example of "noise" which is a euphemism for joe's dumbell
uneducated unscientific speculative thinking.
Due to the subject matter however, the Opus Dopus of this
e-book site, will be stitched together like Dr. Franken-
stein's monster from various sources from my earlier
writings, and then subjected to a life giving force from the
mysterious electronic ether.
These pages will be subject to continuous editing, spelling
corrections, useage corrections, refinements and rewrites at
least until i get it mostly right. Since joe was the comma
splice king of english class, i'll hopelessly just leave
those alone. some people think in comma splices anyhow, no
reason to force the brain to think in, and accomodate, some
arbitrary english rules.
Rather than read all the stuff on the screen, just print
whatever chapter(s) you are interested in from the site on
your new laser printer. Adjust the left margin to 1.5" so
you can 3-hole punch the pages and still read them, saving
them in a notebook for your grandchildren in case they need
to start a fire in case the oil runs out.
Then you can just red pencil what you disagree with... Buy
more than one red pencil. You do have a new laser printer
don't you? :-)
Visit periodically, if you are interested, to pick up the
many page changes, although, as i am quite old, they may end
quite abruptly. Let me say goodby now just in case. :-)
This free, albeit content copyleft e-book (about 2.5 million
bytes) is now over twice the size of the New Testament
(about a million bytes). How it EVER got that big is
completely beyond me. Wordy chap no? and i haven't even
gotten started yet...
This e-book offers radical new (to me) theoretical
explanations and discusses:
(but note: Some of joe's great 'original' deductions
turned out to be over 200 years old!)
1) The "particle" physics involved with the Big Bang,
postulating that the "big bang" was the result of the
collapse of the weak gravitational force of the
hypermassive object and that the "big bang" event was
actually a "weak repulsive force" albeit,
hypermassively scaled, repulsive "slow bang" event.
2) How Quantum Warped Spacetime (gravity) might be generated
and how it might react to pressures & temperatures.
3) The Particle Physics of the Magnetar
4) A theory of warped spacetime (gravity) limits.
5) A possible explanation of the apparent Filament Nature of
6) A new model of the Universe, called the Universe+.
7) Limiting the concept of gravitational wave propagation.
8) The causes of certain types of nova and perhaps super nova.
9) The theoretical existence of Black Energy Holes.
10) Why the Universe's expansion is accelerating.
11) The activities of binary black holes.
12) Clusters - the naughty kids of the universe
13) Binary black holes and quasars, pulsars, &
14) A possible direction in developing a TOE using the
graviton model for all other particle configurations
and their generated fields. and on and on...
15) Mass - what is it really?
16) Dark Matter - Yet another hypothesis
17) Entropy? yes? no? maybe?
18) Chaos - Chaos rules the cosmos.
(concepts under the Chaos theory, that is.)
19) Why it is important to NOT get caught up in the
invisible, undetectable, gravitational fields of the
20) And some other concepts where Joe wades in and gets
in way over his head.
Anyhow, i think this stuff would be great for classroom
discussion and an energizer to solicit competing ideas (and
better ones) from the students.
There is a lot out there, and a long way to go...
As an aside, the HTML used here is radically minimized and
is reduced almost to HTML(0) due to the deprecation by W3C
of many of the highly useful tags for small documents.
Everything is just <pre>-ed out.
Among the many things a Joe Sixpack isn't is a person who
will follow the W3C dance to its destination of complexity.
That is why we use HTML instead of SGML.
If i can get the idea across with words and the simple
original tags why change things? Hypertext is hypertext is
Joe Sixpacks tend to be a little reactive when it comes to
meadow muffin computer science activity that solves a
problem he doesn't have.
But Joe realizes that he isn't the only one online using
WWW, so if XML and a gooberscript makes your day, be my
guest. Eventually, joe will come up to speed, and one
distant day may even use a CSS file.
And Last but not least is my gift to you, dear reader.

you are over 65 and have a bunch of powdered ferrite core

Video Display Editor
by Dr. Eric Meyer
Video Display Editor
This freeware 90k editor/word processor in my opinion is
without peer for just blasting out papers as fast as you can
think and your little fingers can wiggle.
VDE uses the "old" ergonomic wordstar commands. There is
nothing faster on the planet. And i type at 2 baud. God
only knows how fast the thing can go when one of those 120+
wpm touch typists gets ahold of the thing.
Even Bloatware XP and all earlier MS operating systems still
uses the wordstar remnant command structure in its editor.
If Mr. Gates puts it in his fundamental product, you know
the ergonomic command structure has something going for it.
Trust me on this, if you write creatively, learn to use it
to blast out the basic concepts and then load that file into
your favorite bloatsessor to add all the pretty stuff.
Anyhow, do yourself a favor and check it out...

Alphabetically, zTree is always last. But not least.
And it is always first in my computer useage to solve a
lot of goofy problems that show up when all the family
members are using the same computer, some of whom, are
still looking for the "anykey".
Ztree, by Kim Henkel, is the windows 32 bit heir apparent
and successor to the fabulous xTreeGold of DOS yesteryear.
You can't understand the new bloatware operating systems
without this tree based file manager and it is a LOT more.
When you email the help line, (because you really didn't
read the included documentation very well - or at all...)
It is the main man that answers your question. It doesn't
get better than that. Can't use my computer without it.
But don't be a me. Read the documentation first.
The answer is probably there (somewhere...)
You can chase off more sneakily installed crap from your
hard disk using ZTree than you can imagine was ever on it.
And don't worry, more sneaky crap will get added, but ZTree
My ZTree environment
XP isn't used yet, I have the software (home) but not the
3.0 gig P4 with the 800 FSB and one gig of memory (no money)
so i do all my management in win98se and a lot in windowed
DOS as well.
Kim has some of his own recommendations as well on his page
Learn to use it. It will save all your nine lives.
Does anybody use DOS or GW-Basic anymore besides me?
If so, try JPSoftware's spiffy program, "4dos750".
It was made freeware, and it seems to be a pretty nifty
command.com replacement with more features than i can
ever digest. This is a program that has been going up and up
in my estimation ever since i downloaded it. plain great!

And then there is LIST.COM by Vernon Buerg.
From the pleistocene era and forward, spanning epochs, comes
the indestructable reader of all readers: "List.com".
List is a tiny program that is small, fast, versatile, and
I use it exclusively as my KJV reader because i can set it
up so as to stop any accidental jot or letter accidentally
being added to the work. An editor is something you do NOT
want while reading the KJV. LIST.COM is perfect in that it
keeps your stinking hands off accidentally corrupting holy
scripture on your confuser.
The Four Files of the Apocalypse
And last and least is my personal favorite for the senior,
mentally challenged, joseph_sixpack set, the very small 80k
interpreter, gwbasic.exe, version 3.23
The humble interpreter might have been considered a bit
sluggish in the 8088 days, but try it on a 486 or later
3gig+ P4 processor...
Your humble stumble managed to dupe in gwbasic code, almost
every computer software solution for any need that most
normal people use a computer for, and that includes, writing
normal letters, proposals, rfq's, using budget and cashflow
spreadsheets, simple accounting, databases, record
collections, (wax cylinders if you are from my era :-),
But geez... I found out that it can just do it all.
So anyhow, when i get a round tuit, i'll add all the code
here for the newbie programmer specializing in ancient
tongues that i found handy, so handy in fact, it eliminated
most of my fretting over the disappearing Ashton-Tate,
Micropro, Borland, Lotus, and all their support and updates.
(Note: a lot has since been added.)
Offline, i use the gwbasic stuff almost exclusively.
It's all copyleft, so if you find it useful, run with it.
The upshot is, that in order to do most things on a computer
you only need four files plus your code. the no-bloat
system is called: "The Four Files of the Apocalypse"
The four files run about ummm... 214k if i remember.
They include: IO.SYS, MSDOS.SYS, COMMAND.COM & GW-BASIC.
i use version 6.22 for the DOS part, and a GW-BASIC 3.23
from DOS 4.01. But any version of DOS or GW-BASIC back to
DOS 2.11 would probably do.
Ummm, i cheat a little bit by using Qbasic for the 14 column
x N row spreadsheets. need the qbasic program to get into
hi-res 50 line mode. Gwbasic pooped out at EGA and 25
Also used is an early xTreePro and Tiny Editor (TED).
TED is written in assembly using only 2,988 bytes of code by
Tom Kihlken. TED is just a perfectly sweet piece of code.
A real masterpiece. (both are still around and on the NET
Admittedly, my 4 files of the apocalypse are starting to
suffer from population growth and middle aged spread with
other small additions, but... well, still have a very, very,
long way to go to match 95, 95s, 98, 98se, ME, XP or Vista
or Linux 1 thru 100, which is going the "very fat city"
You can substitute any other small interpreter or compiled
language if you want in place of GW-Basic if that is your
preference such as, Turbo Pascal, Forth, or some assembler.
It is your call, small "c". or QuickC or QuickAssembler,
QuickPascal... on and on...
JoeSixpack is NOT a programmer, so i had to keep it simple
for stupid (myself) using gwbasic 3.23 from DOS 4.01 which
is the last formal release that i know of.
Anyhow, here it is:
An intuitive look at the cosmos, black holes,
sub-atomic particles, gravity, big bang,
and late night sandwiches
