    It will be little noted nor long remembered but thanks to this posting I realized that it was on Sept 2 2015 I solved the philosophical problem of causality. The solution is in information theory and non equilibrium thermodynamics. Causation is a dynamic process which brings it under the laws of thermodynamics and when you throw in information theory you get observable causation. This philosophical problem was spawned by Hume which gave rise to Kant, buried empirical observation, and bedevils current thinking on free will and metaphysics. SO I am proud that on this Day I broke the back of Hume, Kant, and Pragmatism. This will be the day I, for me, can put along side Ayn Rand starting AS. My work's impact will not be known until I publish and then for many years but it was on this day that I can say, "Brother you asked for it."

    Sept 2 is an auspicious day, always to be remembered. Not only for the several key incidents on that day in Atlas Shrugged, but also it is the day that Japan officially surrendered to end WWII. My family would ALWAYS have cake and ice cream on that day. They would also give me presents...did I mention that it is also my birthday?

    Bought & watched AS 3. I believe the bad reviews were wrong. The movie was great.
    One must have watched AS 1 & 2 prior to watching 3 or else one would NOT understand it.
