Civilizing Cyberspace

About the Book

Computer Science in the 21st Century and beyond is far more dangerous than anyone appreciates. It is not just endless, poorly guarded information; it is limitless battlegrounds in a software empowered war between good and evil in a conflicted world. Worse still, General-Purpose Computer Science replaces the standards of democracy with corrupt digital dictatorships. The Civilization of Cyberspace is the fight for a Digital Democracy that meets the needs of freedom-loving nations. A level digital playing field without the centralized hacker privileges used by mainframe architectures from the Cold War.
A mathematical machine is engineered for the people, instead of dictators, monopolies, criminals, and enemies. Kenneth J Hamer-Hodges wrote the microcode for the first such capability-based computer. The
PP250 deconstructed statically compiled procedures into dynamic object-oriented machine code, where digital boundaries detect and prevent malware and hacking. He takes a deep dive into the dilemmas of the General-Purpose Computer, using history to explain nature's fail-safe, future-safe machinery of life for anyone to understand. A universal model of computation revealed by the Church-Turing Thesis. Kenneth shows how form and function define the DNA of object boundaries needed for the flawless automation of software as a species that obeys all the laws defined by both sides of the Church-Turing Thesis.

An Anthem for Computer Science

'Those who view mathematical science, not merely as a vast body of abstract and immutable truths, whose intrinsic beauty, symmetry and logical completeness, when regarded in their connexion together as a whole, entitle them to a prominent place in the interest of all profound and logical minds, but as possessing a yet deeper interest for the human race, when it is remembered that this science constitutes the language through which alone we can adequately express the great facts of the natural world, and those unceasing changes of mutual relationship which, visibly or invisibly, consciously or unconsciously to our immediate physical perceptions, are interminably going on in the agencies of the creation we live amidst: those who thus think on mathematical truth as the instrument through which the weak mind of man can most effectually read his Creator's works, will regard with especial interest all that can tend to facilitate the translation of its principles into explicit practical forms.'

Church-Turing Machines

A Church-Turing Machine obeys the laws of the Lambda-Calculus as a fail-safe process of computation based on the Church-Turing Thesis. A Church-Turing Machine is a future-safe, fail-safe computer that operates using encapsulated mathematical symbols. The same mathematical process of expressions taught at school. Implementing the laws of the Lambda-Calculus leads to infallible automation first proven by Charles Babbage, and previously demonstrated by the Abacus and the Slide Rule.

The Infallible Automation of Computer Science

A General-Purpose Computer is like Napiers Bones while a Church-Turing Machine is like a slide rule. A machine has a cyclic framework for computation instead of a set of loose parts. One is just a pile of stones used for counting while the other is a fail-safe machine for mathematical functions. Read Civilizing Cyberspace to understand more how the laws of the Lambda Calculus define the machinery of computer science, and why the Church-Turing Thesis holds the keys, both figuratively and literally to the future of cyber democracy.

Understanding Computer Security

The internet is far more dangerous than it seems. It is not just storing endless information, it is the limitless battleground in a war between good and evil. The Civilization of Cyberspace is the fight for a Digital Democracy. A level playing field as a mathematical platform ruled by the people, instead of dictators, monopolies, criminals, and enemies.
Ken Hamer-Hodges takes a deep dive into the history of computer science to explain the universal model of computation, nature's perfect, future-safe alternative. Kenneth shows how form and function express digital boundaries for the flawless-automation of computer science. It is the only way to secure democracy in a software-run society.
Grab your copy to learn how data-tight cyberspace can be safely colonized. The Cold War Computer cannot resist malware or hackers and Artificial Intelligence will bring catastrophic results. We need the science of mathematical machines. It all began with the Babylonian Abacus.

New Book on Computer Security

The Civilization of Cyberspace by K J Hamer-Hodges
Visit www.sipantic.net to place advanced orders.
Cyberspace in the 21st Century and beyond is far more dangerous than anyone appreciates. It is not just endless, poorly guarded information; it is limitless battlegrounds in a software empowered war between good and evil in a conflicted world. Worse still, General-Purpose Computer Science replaces the standards of democracy with corrupt digital dictatorships. The Civilization of Cyberspace is the fight for a Digital Democracy that meets the needs of freedom loving nations. A level digital playing field without the centralized hacker privileges used by isolated mainframes architectures from the Cold War.
A mathematical machine is engineered for the people, instead of dictators, monopolies, criminals, and enemies. Kenneth J Hamer-Hodges wrote this microcode for the first capability-based computer. The PP250 deconstructed statically compiled procedures into dynamic object-oriented machine code, where digital boundaries detect and prevent malware and hacking. He takes a deep dive into the dilemmas of the General-Purpose Computer, using history to explain nature's fail-safe, future-safe machinery of life. A universal model of computation revealed by the Church-Turing Thesis. Kenneth shows how form and function define the DNA of object boundaries needed for the flawless
automation of software that obeys all the laws of the λ-calculus.
The PP250 pioneered this Church-Turing Computer Architecture by adding a λ-calculus meta-machine. Distributing the mathematical powers of software this way protects the future. Crucially, the λ-calculus secures private data in the hands of concerned individuals. A capability controlled, software-run society using a true to form level playing field, where digital computations are data-tight, and the colonization of cyberspace is mathematically pure, equal and just to one and all. The commercial computer is security limited by centralized Identity Based Access Control while increasing complexity plus Artificial Intelligent Malware guarantees impending national disasters. Ken simplifies the opaque art of cyber security to explain, in human terms for all to understand, the need for trusted mathematical machines that began in Babylon with the Abacus.
