Strange Chess News by Bradley
The Newtonians Strike Back
We received a lot of complaints about Liebnitzians and the Monadian Chess
Club. We couldn't get to all of them in this issue. One came from a British E Bay trader. (E Bay is a World Wide online Auction
His complaint was so unique we decided to include it in the Strange Chess
Let Burt Morland tell his story in his own words. "Dear Sir: Your last
Strange Chess News had many erroneous assumptions. Gottfried Wilhelm von Liebnitz was not the innocent naive persecuted figure
the Monadians would like you to think.
Your editor Bradley Zang was biased. Did you know what type of world
Liebnitz and his follower were trying to create?
Leibnitz once outlined plans for making a selfaware machines to
oversee a society, based entirely on mathematically-encoded concepts.
Your article presumed that British Newtonians hounded Leibnitzian
to the point where they only felt safe in Hungary.
Then why are most Leibnitzian English?
Augusta Ada Byron (First to write software applications of the Analytical
Engine died 1852) was a English champion of the Leibnitzians goal. Her father Lord Byron (George Gordon Byron was an estranged
English Whig nobelman and an Icon to Romantic poets.) hated the Newtonian.
Lord Byron a cheiftain of the Monadian of Chess most far-reaching
words were "Good company 's a chess-board--there are kings, Queens, bishops, knights, rooks, pawns; the world 's a game."
Lord Byron despite what the Monadians claim was not an angel. He was
whispered to be the lover of Mary Schelley ( Writer), probably her husband Percy' certainly her sister Clair and his own married
Oh, Percy was also the lover of Clair. (If your confused remember the
British just made an Opera about the people on the Jerry Springer Show, to make fun of American culture)
Mary Schelley's book Frankenstein was her way of showing contempt
for the Liebnitzian cult led by Byron.

Byron work Alan Mathison Turing (died 1954) ascended as the most prominent of them. Alan Turing invented the computational
monad, you called artificial monad. (He is considered to be the founder of modern computor science, but more importantly wrote
the first chess software.)
When you chat with people on line, do you know if it is a real
person you are talking to, or is it a conversation-simulator as proposed by Turing? (Turing Test) Think about it, not only
can the computer pretend to be someone romantically interested during online chatting, it can choose someone else, romance
them in your name, then arrange them to meet you thus controlling who we mate with; In other word, selective breeding to create
better computer service people.
Another British Monadian is Dr. Chris Winters of the famed Telecom
Team. Telecom plans to develop a chip to be placed behind the eye to records people's experiences. Then after creating a DNA
replica (Clones) they will encode the information on the new brain giving people some kind if immortality.
Don't believe that is all the chip will do. It will limit our understanding
to lie within mathematically-encoded concepts. Leibnitz's dream!!! They will promise us immortality but take away what?
Well, they call the chips Soul Catchers. The Monadians of Chess
Look how they have screwed up in the past. Did you ever here of
Mephisto? Named after Mephistopheles a German medieval demon often associated with Leibnitz's pursuit of knowledge, trading
knowledge for peoples souls. (Faust Legend)
Mestipho was a chess-playing machine or maybe a chess-playing cyborg.
( London 1876). Some skeptics thought some guy was hidden somewhere, perhaps inside the machine deciding its moves, but it
won too many games against the great men of chess, to be just some guy. (Maybe Isador Gunsberg but he denied it.)
Extraordinarliy it never beat a women. Then in 1883 it played and
beat Mikhail Ivanovich Chigorin , perhaps the strongest player in the world. (Founder of the Russian school of chess. See
game below) .
How was Mephisto designed? From diagrams in a secret document written
by Augusta Ada Byron.
You can wonder how, computer chips weren't invented yet. Part of the
project was proposed by a Dr. Claus Zukertont a great monadian chess player and mortician. His theory was, If you could create
a strong magnetic fields around a person at the time of his death, whatever escapes in the form of electrical neural patterns
could be captured and then transferred to a disembodied brain.
Many scientist have proposed that consiousness is a merly a reverberating
cuircuit on the thalmus region of the brain.
But what type of brain? A human brain, perhaps that of Howard Staunton
kept alive partly by adding pig fetal brains stem cells to replace cell as they died. It was what we would call today the
central processor of Mephisto.
The Monadians don't care what they do to create their Utopia or promote
Then on a rainy, foggy spring night in London while standing in
a magnetic field generator he was tweaking, Dr Zukertont was struck dead by lightning. His assistant, Igo, discovered the
body in the morning. He must have felt lucky to be able to transfer the captured neural pattern to the cyborgs brain.
Then Igo got Charles Gumpel a man who did experiments with artificial
limbs to help finish Dr. Zukertont's work, perfecting the robotics of its mechanical arms.
Mephisto brought Gumpel fame and fortune which allowed him to travel
the world. He even found happiness in France through the sparkling eyes of Angelique a beautiful dancer he met wheh she starled
him by kicking his hat off at a party. Angelique delighting in the opulent lifestyle he provided eventually became his mistress.
She even shared in his interests like chess.
Then in 1899 Mephisto claimed it was dyeing. It couldn't hold Dr. Zukertont
reverberating cuircuit any longer because it would eventually dissipate. It required another mind to take its place. It begged
in the name of chess save it! Or did it feel all alone in that Brain?
Gumpel wanted to help. He needed money to maintain his mistress
in the life style she was accustom to. But he asked Mephisto, "How could you find a person, know exactly when they would die
and envelope their body in a magnetic field?"
Mephisto said the logical thing was to electrocute someone during a chess
game. Our intuitive concepts of right and wrong are not mathematically-encoded. People wondered why Mephisto alway lost to
women and offered to shake their hand. Was it to find a soul-mate? It is said Gumpel refused Mephisto's plea, sent Igo away
and locked the machine in a closet while on tour of Paris.
When he returned, he found the closet door ajar Angelique electrocuted,
her chard lifeless hand still stuck holding Mepisto's mechanical hand. Fearing no one would believe him and that he might
be charged with murder, he disposed of her body in the Seine river. (French tradition)
This is the Legend of Mephisto. It is said Gumpel, broken hearted
disassemble Mephisto and sent its parts to the four corners of the earth. Now the parts are being found and auctioned off
on E Bay.
Worse monadians associated with Telecom artificial life team are buying
all the parts to reassemble it. Please Investigate! It's easy I have records of the sales."
Our editor Bradley Zang refused to allow us to form
an investigation committee. He said, "How does Mephisto work? Electricity, Magnetic feilds that's not an answer. Also this
anti- artificial intelligence stuff is worse than that nonsense the Newtonian of Chess Godel, Dreyfus and Penrose have put
out. This is crazy stuff. If this guy thinks I'm biased why should I investigate. I'm not Newton."
