In my 10 books, I have changed EVERYTHING in Philosophy, Physics and Cognitive (Neuro)science… Everything: I have changed the framework of human thinking completely and I have solved the GREAT (i.e. philosophical) problems of each “special science”. Only two theories remains untouched (Darwin’s evolution and Boltzmann’s entropy), but my EDWs perspective have furnished their ontologies (for Darwin book 2016, for Boltzman book 2017)! All other theories have been either rejected (quantum mechanics, all in cognitive neuroscience, etc., books 2008-2016) or majors changed (in book 2010, we furnished the definition of ‘life’, in book 2017, we re-wrote Einstein’s both relativities – since in book 2016, we showed that space and time cannot even exist). This is the main reason so many people, from so many domains (so many countries) HAVE PLAGIARIZED so many of my ideas! Obviously, history does not forgive plagiarism. They have already lost. “I don’t care that they stole my ideas. I care that they don’t have any of their own… The present is their; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.” (Nikola Tesla)’
During the last 100 years, I question why nobody among great minds (Einstein, Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg, Feynman, etc.) have discovered the correct answer to the main problems of Quantum Mechanics, but after I published his articles and first two books (2002-2010 – FREE all his FIVE books, on various sites, all English), many people have started to ‘find’ the solutions to these problems? Why nobody have found the answer to the mind-brain problem, but after my publications, many people have found the solution to this problem (and many related problems)? In fact, during 2500 years, nobody discovered the existence of „epistemologically different worlds” (EDWs). After I discovered the EDWs and published my main article 2005 (Synthese USA, one of the best journal in USA of philosophy of science), and the first five books (all English, posted FREE at his webpage and other pages) and mostly after I published my book at Springer in 2016 (a summary of my first five books), many “specialists” from different fields have published UNBELIEVABLE similar ideas to his ideas. These “specialists” have been like “(poisonous) mushrooms after the rain”! Why nobody published any idea about the EDWs and all people have been working within the unicorn world (Universe/world) until I posted my books on Internet? Why none of these “specialists” published these unbelievable similar ideas to my ideas BEFORE I published and posted myideas (2002, 2003, 2005, 2008-2016)? We know that other people will plagiarize certain ideas from this book. Why? Because the EDWs perspective is the greatest movement in the history of human thinking (particular sciences and philosophy) and actual scientists and philosophers can do nothing since all great problems of science and philosophy have been solved by our philosophical construction that mirrors the ontological-epistemological status of EDWs!
The main idea has to be clear: all my ideas have been created within a NEW FRAMEWORK OF THINKING! A new framework of thinking appears less than one per century! This is the reason all these ‘similar ideas’ are UNBELIEVABLE! In order to have any of my ideas from Philosophy, Physics and Cognitive Neuroscience referring to the main problems – the mind-brain problem, what really exist, quantum mechanics problems (nonlocality, the relationship between Einstein relativity and quantum mechanics, wave-particle duality, etc.) – there was necessary a completely new framework of thinking. This process (changing such a large ‘paradigm pf thinking’) with such a great amplitude (aplications) happens one time in at least two-centuries!
In the middle of 2018, I notice so many people have plagiarized my ideas (Physics, Cognitive Neuroscience, Philosophy) that I am sure that I HAVE ALREADY CHANGED THE FRAMEWORK OF THINKING OF PEOPLE WORKING WITHIN THE ENTIRE ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT! I know many ‘great’ physicists (cognitive neuroscientists and philosophers) have a very bad feeling, since a ‘Nobody’ have solved the greatest problems of Physics (Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy)! Unfortunately, in this “world”, there are quite many thieves (in politics, academic environment, business, etc.). Certainly, the history has never forgotten any kind of thieves…
I mention that from 2014, I have sent emails to thousands of people (from Physics, Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy departments in many countries) regarding the UNBELIEVABLE similarities between my ideas and the ideas of other people from particular sciences (Physics, Cognitive Neuroscience) and Philosophy in many countries! Therefore, in this context, we recall Einstein’s words: “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” This verdict has been available many times in my career! In 2018, I claim that I should get TWO Nobel Prizes (Physics and Medicine (Cognitive Neuroscience) (together with my twin brother Mihai), since I have changed EVERYTHING in these two domains), but I know I will get nothing just because I am Romanian (i.e., I am Nobody), therefore many of my ideas can be plagiarized by so many people in the academic environment from many countries.

- (2017) Gabriel Vacariu and Mihai Vacariu, From Hypernothing to Hyperverse: EDWs, Hypernothing, Wave and Particle, Elementary Particles, Thermodynamics, and Einstein’s Relativity Without “Spacetime”, Datagroup Over the last two centuries, the relationship between philosophy and science has completely broken down, so the question we are confronted with is: How can we develop a new philosophy, which will influence science decisively? The physicists of the last century rejected their contemporary philosophy. They considered that “philosophy today is dead” (Hawking and Mlodinow 2010 ). However, we believe that the great scientific problems are always philosophical, and only philosophical problems. Therefore, these problems can be solved only by philosophers and scientists who operate at the greatest level of thinking: that of the “paradigm of thinking”. In fact, these great scientific problems can usually be solved by changing the “paradigm of thinking” for scientists.This book furnished more applications of the “epistemologically different worlds” (that replaced the “world”/”universe” – in their previous books (2008, 2010, 2011, etc.), the authors indicated that the notion of the world/universe is wrong). Following Aristotle’s “Prime Mover” (or the “Unmoved Mover”), we stop the regress ad infinitum by discovering the first EW, the EW0 (the Hypernothing). Even if one EW does not exist for any EDW, the Hypernothing was the first EW and all other EDWs correspond to the EW0. Chapter 2 is about the “Hypernothing”. The other chapters continue our works of applying the EDWs to different concepts/areas of Physics: quantum mechanics, elementary particles, thermodynamics (with its main notion, “entropy”), etc. In the last chapter, knowing that Einstein’s special and general theory of relativity are very correct (but in a book 2016 we showed that “spacetime” cannot ontologically exist), we re-write both theories without “spacetime”.

(Chapter 1, the non-living entities (objects) that belong to EDWs; Chapter 2, the living beings (each living being is an EW); Chapter 3, the general view of the EDWs perspective) and its main applications to the main philosophical and scientific areas: Chapter 4, philosophy of mind (Descartes’ dualism, levels, reductionism and emergence, qualia, Kant and the “I”); Chapter 5, cognitive science (computationalism and dynamical systems, declarative-procedural, accessible-inaccessible, conscious-unconscious, conceptual- sensorimotor, symbolic-subsymbolic, and explicit-implicit, levels, representations, bidirectionality, threshold etc.); Chapter 6, cognitive neuroscience (optimism and its amazing results (Gallant’s laboratory) and skepticism (Uttal, Raichle’s “default network”), the localization problem, the binding problems (the main approach, oscillations or synchrony theory), multisensory integration, perception and object recognition); Chapter 7 biology (life and the organism/cell); Chapter 8, physics (Einstein’s theory of special and general relativity, quantum mechanics (non-locality or entanglement, the measurement problem, superposition), the relationship between these two theories). In the conclusion, I will explain why I consider that scientists from cognitive (neuro)science, biology and physics need to change the framework within which they work (the unicorn world) with the new “Weltanschauung”, the EDWs perspective.

“Blurb” for a book (Lexington Books):
The editor of Lexington Books (Rowman & Littlefield, USA) asked me for a “blurb” (advertising) of one of their book: the author: Sam Rakover (Psychology, Haifa University, Israel). There are three blurbs. See my words (“blurb”) for the book at “Reviews”, this address:
My blurb is the following one: “Knowing that Sam Rakover is a psychologist, his ‘dual methodology’ and ‘multi-explanation framework’ that appear in this book can be considered as an essential epistemological step toward an overall explanation of the realities (‘epistemological ontologies’) of mind and brain (i.e., my ‘epistemologically different worlds’ perspective).

His existence would produce strong ontological contradictions! (The paper is here (2015) Vacariu ‘God-cannot-even-exist’)
- about Tarkovsky’s Solaris (2018) here: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=a_KllVmC1F8
- Hobby: analyzing Andrei Tarkovsky’s movies, climbing the mountains (especially in winter), swimming, playing soccer, and leading political electoral campaigns.
- Some students and even physicists of Physics, Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy from France, Pakistan, India, etc. asked me to be their supervisor…
My idols: Constantin Brancusi, Andrei Tarkovsky, Leonardo da Vinci, Nikola Tesla, Hannibal Barca, Genghis Khan, and Bobby Fischer.
I changed everything in Physics (quantum mechanics, relationship between quantum mechanics and Einstein’s relativity, dark matter/energy, space and time, etc.), I showed that Cognitive Neuroscience is a pseudo-science, I solved the mind-brain problem, I furnished the best definition to “life”, etc. I have been plagiarized by record number of people, record number of countries, record domains, record topics.
In the second semester, I am free regarding courses/seminars. Does anybody invite me to hold course/seminar at their university? Topics? see my books… I solved ALL GREAT PROBLEMS in Physics, Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy!
Before dying, Kant’s last words: “It is good!” My last words will be: “It is much better! Much better…”
