The Irrational Mechanics wiki contains several inter-related projects inspired by a positive attitude toward highly imaginative science and technology. In particular, we try to write intelligently about important topics that are sometimes dismissed by the thought police as unPC (politically incorrect) "pseudoscience" (whatever that means).

We also try to have fun and mercilessly ridicule the SJWs (Scientific Justice Warriors).

The Irrational Mechanics wiki is associated with the Turing Church magazine and community.

Rational Mechanics is an important part of mathematical physics. The Oxford Dictionaries define "Rational Mechanics" as "the branch of mechanics in which models, propositions, etc., are deduced mathematically from first principles."

In mathematics, a rational number is defined as a number that can be expressed as the ratio (quotient) p/q of two integers p and q. At school we learn that the square root of 2 is a real number that can't be expressed as the quotient of two integers. The square root of two - 1.4142... followed by an infinite number of non-repeating digits - is an irrational number. Other irrational numbers are π , the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and e, the base of the natural logarithm.

There are infinitely more irrational numbers than rational numbers. If you could choose a random real number, the probability to hit a rational number would be zero. This is a good metaphor for the concept that reality is much more complex than current scientific understanding. But Shakespeare said it better:

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
—William Shakespeare, Hamlet

Deliberately mixing metaphors, we can define Irrational Mechanics as the future science of complex reality beyond current science.

The wiki includes common MediaWiki extensions, templates, and modules used in Wikipedia, and can be used as drafting area for content to be exported to Wikipedia.

Some pages are open for everyone to read, but only invited users have full read access and write access. If you wish to receive an invitation, please contact us.
