1996 Course Offerings at the
Scientific and Technical University for Politically Intelligent Development


                          About S.T.U.P.I.D.

We are an equal opportunity university specializing in higher-order 
thinking skills that provide students with raised consciousness, 
empowerment, and self-esteem.  We are especially proud of our inclusionary 
policies which empower all members of society, regardless of differences 
in ability and background. For example, we were the first university in 
North America to ensure that every traffic sign on campus was not only 
printed in at least 5 languages, but is also marked in Braille. We are
proud of our diversity and require gender and ethnic diversity from every 
student.  All students accepted to S.T.U.P.I.D. are guaranteed passing 
grades and a succesful graduation as a right. All students applying to 
S.T.U.P.I.D. are guaranteed admittance as long as our modest tuition 
requirements and entrance fees are paid - and we work hard to help students 
get the federal and state grants they deserve to attend our university. 
Competition is out - all classes operate on the principles of cooperative 
learning, self-directed learning, learning-to-learn, and active learning.
This is facilitated by our well supplied computer and multimedia labs, now 
with Super Sega CD and Enhanced Super Nintendo. S.T.U.P.I.D. - the ultimate
adventure in modern education. 

Funding for S.T.U.P.I.D. is generously provided by the taxpayers of the
United States. Most of our budget comes from the $80 million a year our 
newly founded Medical College receives from the U.S. government to not 
produce any more physicians. Our Department of Physics also receives 
$10 million a year in Federal grants to not produce any physicians. 

P101 - PC Freshman Physics: Toward a Higher Awareness

Traditional Eurocentric physics must be excised if students are to achieve 
higher consciousness. The restrictive ideology of Newton, with its 
emphasis on action and reaction, is exposed as reactionary propaganda, 
used for centuries to oppress people and institutionalize fear and hate. 
The prohibitive, traditional "laws" of physics must be rejected in favor 
of new models that foster tolerance, empowerment, and social justice. 
Under the old order, radical conservative forces have imposed 
"conservative" laws restricting the use of energy, mass, momentum, and
electrical charge. Rather than conserving such forces and powers, they 
must be increased and made available to all people, regardless of race, 
gender, or sexual orientation.  Students are instructed in the 
revolutionary New Physics and are encouraged to promote awareness through 
demonstrations and other media events. 

P115 - Contributions of the Vertically Challenged in Physics

Startling new evidence confirms that most great physicists were vertically 
challenged (or "short," as bigots are wont to say). Unfortunately,
repressive social norms forced many scientists to strive to appear 
vertically gifted in order to maintain credibility with the masses. Some 
never publicly came out about their true vertical orientation, but were 
still privately active in the vertically challenged subculture. This course 
examines how the vertically challenged status of Newton, Galileo, Einstein, 
Bohr, and many others contributed to their success as scientists. 

P116 - Quantum Mechanics: Contributions of Indigenous Peoples

Most textbooks on physics, written by the ruling Eurocentric white male
class, have completely ignored the fundamental contributions of indigenous 
peoples toward our understanding of quantum mechanics. This course seeks to 
rectify past wrongs by focusing on the achievements in quantum mechanics 
of peoples such as the Aleutian Indians, the Australian Aborigines, and 
Karen tribes of Thailand. Extra credit and reduced homework loads are 
available to members of oppressed groups. 

P221 - White Male Oppression in Nuclear Physics

For centuries, white males have used the rhetoric and the tools of physics -
especially nuclear physics - to suppress other classes. Bigoted labeling of 
subatomic particles, such as "negative" for the charge of the electron or
"uncharmed" for some quarks, implies that some particles are better than 
others, which in turn is used to strengthen repressive norms of racial and 
gender inequality. Students will explore more holistic approaches to 
physics and learn how to turn physics into a New Age tool of class struggle 
to overthrow oppression.

P287 - Feminist Cosmology

The Big Bang Model is exposed a purely male paradigm, deliberately replete 
with male sexual symbolism in order to deny empowerment to women. A more
progressive feminine cosmology, the Gentle Nurturing, is offered to 
replaced the male Big Bang theory. The Gentle Nurturing model views the 
origin of the universe as lengthy period of gradual gestation, followed by 
steady nurturing, rather than a sudden eruption. The male originators of 
the Big Bang theory are examined critically for their role in maintaining 
an oppressive order through the manipulation of physics. The new paradigm 
shows that we are part of an interconnected cosmic entity which must be 
further nurtured and protected from the harms inflicted by the radical 

P326 - Advanced Psychophysics

This specialized course for physics majors only teaches students to 
achieve high levels of cosmic awareness by tapping into the universal 
consciousness that engulfs us all. Such higher order thinking skills are 
developed by cooperative quantum reconstruction and self-directed neural 
empowerment sessions with the assistance of Tarot cards, Ouija boards, 
energy crystals, and altered states of consciousness.  Students not only 
develop their psychic gifts, but learn how to effectively market them in 
fields such as Celebrity Counseling, Political Psychotherapy (including 
tips on White House protocol), and Forensic Psychozoology (using psychic
gifts to identify which corporations have harmed protected species). 
Teaching assistants are available in the form of personal spirit guides. 

P331 - Gaia, the Atomic Mother

Past studies of Gaia as the self-regulating life force of mother earth have 
been too narrow in their vision. A new framework for physics shows that 
Gaia originates at the atomic level, where each atom is alive and connected 
to the cosmic consciousness, directly influencing universal karma. This 
breakthrough in human consciousness, finally accessing the astral energies 
of the atom itself, reveals the horror of man's sins against nature in the 
twentieth century. Splitting the atom, for example, is now seen as the 
ultimate act of violence. Our assault on the atomic world may account for 
much of the clash between man and nature, including the recent escalation 
in lightning strikes. This course will show students new approaches to life 
and energy to heal the wounds we have inflicted to the atomic world, 
including the damaged self-esteem to electrons and other particles 
afflicted with judgmental labels by bigoted scientists. Prerequisite: P221. 

The Scientific and Technical University for Politically Intelligent
Development is a fully accredited non-profit institution of higher 
multicultural learning. The University is an Equal Opportunity institution, 
working to provide equality and empowerment for all. Reactionaries and 
members of oppressor classes need not apply.
