We consider idea of hierarchical multitime notion and of the cone of creation. Following this idea, the time used in traditional sense is only a single projection of time in the multitime. Multitime must have inner dimension upwards turning it into hierarchical structure which acts as what we call global cone of creation. On our time projection, evolution of species and BB, both global and local, in SM are examples of local cones of creation. Higgs field as symmetry breaking accounts for complementary worlds on other projections of time in multitime. We argue that time is form of referencing within matter and doesn’t have any sense without matter. These are the hypothetical assumptions which may be tested, when LHC experiment shall go on.Contents Abstract........................................................................................................................................................ 1 What is time?................................................................................................................................................ 3 What is the mass?......................................................................................................................................... 3 What is actually what we perceive as mass or massiveness?......................................................................... 4
1 Pluralistic Modeling of Complex Systems

The modeling of complex systems such as ecological or socioeconomic systems can be very challenging. Although various modeling approaches exist, they are generally not compatible and mutually consistent, and empirical data often do not allow one to decide what model is the right one, the best one, or most appropriate one. Moreover, as the recent financial and economic crisis shows, relying on a single, idealized model can be very costly. This contribution tries to shed new light on problems that arise when complex systems are modeled. While the arguments can be transferred to many different systems, the related scientific challenges are illustrated for social, economic, and traffic systems. The contribution discusses issues that are sometimes overlooked and tries to overcome some frequent misunderstandings and controversies of the past. At the same time, it is highlighted how some longstanding scientific puzzles may be solved by considering nonlinear models of heterogeneous agents with spatiotemporal interactions. As a result of the analysis, it is concluded that a paradigm shift towards a pluralistic or possibilistic modeling approach, which integrates multiple world views, is overdue. In this connection, it is argued that it can be useful to combine many different approaches to obtain a good picture of reality, even though they may be inconsistent. Finally, it is identified what would be profitable areas of collaboration between the socioeconomic, natural, and engineering sciences. 1

We forward hypothesis that all what we refer to as mathematics are cognitive aspects of life, moreover, we have right to refer to mathematics as reference system of life. Mathematics and cognition are not distinguishable between themselves because what we call mathematics refer to the functionality by means of what (or via what) we are created by nature, or by God, be it question of our religious persuasion. Thus, according to this hypothesis, mathematics turns out to be considrable more as primary in many points as before, when we attributed to mathematics role of sort of descriptor of nature. When we are going to say that mathematics is reference system of life, we mean that today's mathematics is only some starting state of what might be referred to as mathematics as subject / object of reality.

In dealing with emergent phenomena, a common task is to identify useful descriptions of them in terms of the underlying atomic processes, and to extract enough computational content from these descriptions to enable predictions to be made. Generally, the underlying atomic processes are quite well understood, and (with important exceptions) captured by mathematics from which it is relatively easy to extract algorithmic content. A widespread view is that the difficulty in describing transitions from algorithmic activity to the emergence associated with chaotic situations is a simple case of complexity outstripping computational resources and human ingenuity. Or, on the other hand, that phenomena transcending the standard Turing model of computation, if they exist, must necessarily lie outside the domain of classical computability theory. In this talk we suggest that much of the current confusion arises from conceptual gaps and the lack of a suitably fundamental model within which to situate emergence. We examine the potential for placing emergent relations in a familiar context based on Turing’s 1939 model for interactive computation over structures described in terms of reals. The explanatory power of this model is explored, formalising informal descriptions in terms of mathematical definability and invariance, and relating a range of basic scientific puzzles to results and intractable problems in computability theory.

Pythagorean numbers Let Pythagorean number be triple, with first two elements as projections and third as arrow of where is called projection of distinction and projection of hologram. Pythagorean numbers should be used both as cognitive and mathematical term, but, of course, in different outline. For Pythagorean number in mathematical outline we may always attribute as its meaning cognitive Pythagorean number, either in trivial sense or as physical interpretation or maybe in some other sense. Taking Pythagorean number in cognitive sense we of course maybe loose possibility to find directly corresponding mathematical pair, but we may assume always its existence as we will soon see. Main element that makes Pythagorean number be Pythagorean number is its arrow: If there exists transform then this transform defines pair as Pythagorean number. Pythagorean number, Arrow of thinking or arrow of cogito. For a Pythagorean number being triple, arrow, if we use Pythagorean number in cognitive sense, we call arrow of thinking or arrow of cogito. We suggest for thinking simple
The Double Rotation as Invariant of Motion in Quantum Mechanics

Quantum mechanics may loose its weirdness if systematically geometric algebra methods would be used more. Crucial aspect is to find laws of quantum mechanics be present in macroworld in form of description of motions rather than objects. To help to reach this goal we suggest to use double rotation as one of base invariants in quantum mechanics. We suggest to consider geometric algebra as algebra of motion and double rotation specifically. Key words: quantum mechanics, geometrical algebra, rotation, double rotation, reflection, cognition, reference of life

Social enterprise is charity’s web 2.0—a wouldbe revolution as open to interpretation as a Rorschach blot. For social enterprise to be more than the latest passing fad in doing good, we need a rigorous reassessment of the link between system dynamics and social institutions. To that end this article has three distinct yet related aims. First, I want to offer a new definition of social enterprise, one that reflects its essential nature as a simple rule with complex results. Besides redefining social enterprise, my next goal is to provide an explanation for organizational altruism that goes beyond latching onto the latest popular trends. My alternative approach is to find the basis for corporate charity within corporate identity itself—in particular, the historic function of organizational form as a means of modeling emergent patterns. This article’s final aim is to explain how social enterprise can have its greatest sustainable impact—by making itself obsolete.
