SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Wolf Gordin

Wolf Lvovich Gordin known as Beoby/Beobi, was an anarchist and the creator of a constructed language called AO. Born in Mikhalishki to Rabbi Yehudah Leib Gordin and Khaye Esther Sore, elder brother of Abba Gordin, Wolf was influenced by labor Zionist and anarchist ideas as a young man. In 1908, Wolf and Abba Gordin opened Ivria, an experimental cheder, a school for the teaching of secular Hebrew, in the town of Smorgon. Working together, the two brothers created their own educational press, Novaya Pedagogika and publishing numerous pamphlets on pedagogy between 1907–1914 as well as a single issue of a Yiddish-language journal, Der yunger yid in Vilna in 1911, their libertarian teaching philosophy bridged the non-authoritarian style of Leo Tolstoy's school for peasant children at Yasnaya Polyana and the egoism of Max Stirner. When the First World War swept through the region and Abba traveled along the Dnieper River through Ukraine, making a living by giving private lessons; the outbreak of the October Revolution of 1917 found Abba in Wolf in Petrograd.

There, in April 1917, Wolf founded an organization, the Union of the Five Oppressed—a title expressing the combination of struggles against capitalism, patriarchy and ageism—and became chief editor of the anarchist newspaper Burevestnik in November, following a split in the editorial collective. Subsequently, Wolf joined his brother in Moscow; this began a period of intense creativity and revolutionary agitation for Wolf and Abba, who signed their many collaborations in Russian as "the Gordin Brothers". "They did not so much write books, as'bake' them, so prolific was their literary output", Boris Yelensky recounts, singling out for special admiration their children's fable, Pochemu? ili Kak muzhik popal v stranu Anarkhiya. In 1921, the Bolshevik and former anarchist Victor Serge noted that he two Gordin brothers have played a key role in the Russian anarchist movement of these past few years. Tireless orators and propagandists, prolific writers, journalists and initiators of multiple enterprises, combatants at the barricades of July and October 1917, thanks to their ever-working imaginations they have contributed to creating and sustaining both the life and the waste of this movement.

A "Pananarchist Manifesto" was printed in 1918 by the Moscow Federation of Anarchist Groups under the collective name of the Gordin Brothers. In keeping with the prefix pan-, in the sense of "all", "pananarchism" was to be "an expanded and articulate anarchism" that encompassed the concerns of the Five Oppressed groups, addressing them via a comprehensive program of communism, individualism, "gynanthropism", "cosmism", "pedism". In this sense, the Gordins understood pananarchism as an alternative to Volin's concept of a "synthesis" between different anarchist tendencies. Pananarchism entailed an extension of anarchist principles to "everything", including the fields of knowledge and culture: it meant a critique of both religion and science from a "sociotechnical" perspective. In 1918, the Gordin Brothers issued a "Declaration of the First Central Sociotechnicum", a manifesto for the creation of "a special institution of social experimentation" dedicated to the proposition that "social apparatuses can be invented and cultivated artificially".

Sociotechnics, as a field of experimental work, rejected the Marxist conception of "social science" but asserted "the need for a sociotechnical attitude to social issues, in other words, the need to admit the same building and restructuring, the same free and inventive attitude toward social nature, which humanity, thanks to civilization, has achieved in relation to the physical environment". The Sociotechnicum, as an institution dedicated to sociotechnics, was intended to "shelter sociotechnicians, i.e. social builders and inventors, from persecution both by those in power and by public opinion". In 1919, the Gordin Brothers were interrogated in connection with the September 25th bombing of the Moscow Committee of the Russian Communist Party in Leontiev Lane. Wolf Gordin's manuscript for a book on "Sociophilosophy" was seized by the Cheka. Cheka director Felix Dzerzhinsky, after "a long personal conversation with the Gordins," decided that "both they and their'Social-Technicum' group had neither taken part, nor knew about the impending assassination attempt on the Mosc.

Com. RCP... Their'Social-Technicum' is 10–12 communist sectarians who have renounced private property". After 1919, Wolf Gordin and Abba Gordin ceased to write collaboratively, Wolf pursued his interest in what Serge called "the idée fixe of a universal language of which he is the inventor and, written in numbers, the language AO." Wolf's concept for a "cosmic" language—not only an "international language" like Esperanto, but a genuinely universal "language of humanity"—first emerged in his fictional writing in collaboration with Abba. In Strana Anarkhiia, five refugees representing the Five Oppressed are guided by an unnamed person, "the man from the Land of Anarchy". In their "pan-technical" utopia, technology has so overcome the difference between nature and artifice that "he winds and thunderstorms and storms and thunder and lightning obey us", the guide explains, but clar

QSO J0005-0006

QSO J0005-0006 is a distant quasar in the ~z≥6 regime. It is one of the first two quasars discovered that appear to be "dust-free", the other being QSO J0303-0019, it was the first such discovered, in 2006, confirmed in the 2010 study. On 17 March 2010, Xiaohui Fan, an astronomer at the University of Arizona, leader of the team that made the discovery, announced the discovery of two quasars that have dustless spectra; the implication of this result is that the region of space in which they inhabit is primordially pristine, having not been polluted by "dust" created by the first stars. These are thought to represent the earliest generation of quasar, they announced the next earliest generation of quasar, where dust is detected in proportion to the growth of the galaxy. In more recent quasars, dust is not related to galaxy. QSO J0005-0006 was found to be dust free in a 2006 study of distant quasars, confirmed as such in the 2010 study; the 2010 study removed the potential of masking the dust emission signature occurring, by studying the amount of obscuration of the quasar.
