The New Cutting Edge: Multimedia Synthesis!

Welcome to Yofiel, the first multimedia synthesis company. For many years, the fields of audio synthesis and multimedia have been separate. Yofiel aims to unify audio synthesis with multimedia by drawing in 3D from real-time synthesized sound. At its core is a multitimbral music metasequencer and custom audio synthesizer, designed for the best audio quality possible. From the sound, it draws 3D shapes in OpenGL (scalable for any screen size).

Yofiel is also making some of its audio synthesis components available, not only for free, but also with an open component design, in support of its worldwide artist community.

The great ornithologist Richard Attenborough was once asked why birds sing. After a long explanation, ending in a detailed examination of what happens during a morning chorus, he concluded, "So, if there are no predators, and it is not time to mate, why is there still a morning chorus? Well. It's too late to sleep. It's too early to catch worms. So there isn't anything else to do."

After exploring how to link the conscious and unconscious abstractions with basic feelings, this article postulates a new model for dreams, summarizes the possibilities for computer simulation, and provides a high-level description of the initial cognition process. It is intended as a framework for systematic discussion of each component and process in the hypercognition system, sufficient to define a learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) with emotions and dreams.

The American public thinks it has well-formed opinions on moral, ethical, legal, social, and religious issues, despite there being a general lack of formal education as to how to form such higher-level semantic judgments in the public school system. This study demonstrates that the need to conform to peer attitudes will cause the public to ignore facts, dismiss evidence, and believe in rumors in order to substantiate their view. The majority of Americans will not change their views, after they are formed, even when presented with direct facts to the contrary.

I have been asked to teach on Eastern religion, starting with Buddhism. When one learns the premise of Buddhism, that the world is made of suffering, one is discovering the same premise which led the rich and knowledgeable Prince Siddhartha to leave his royal life and become the first Buddha, starting one of the most wondrous religions in the world.

Non-Aristotelianism is the primary premise for a specialized field of study called General Semantics: a difficult subject to understand as it is totally different from almost everything else we ever learn. Aristotle wrote that a true definition gives the essence of the thing defined (in Greek, literally "the what it was to be"). This is such a core concept in almost all our understanding of the world, including science, mathematics and logic, that we have trouble recognizing how it hobbles our ability to perceive reality more accurately.
