Here is where I tell everyone what We think of the Hole In the Ozone, (Pss on It; Urea decomposes in the presence of Ozone to relatively innoccuous substances, CO2, N2 and H2O) and that should also bring some Water down from the Sky. (I guess in a perfect world we would have more trees. Delivery system need not be overthought, use biogegradable, non-toxic gel capsules to contain the Urea that can then burst under low pressure/high altitude conditions--as a nod to the Bio mavens, you may call it a bladder.)

An interesting article, reported in UnderwaterTimes.com May 6, 2008, Stressed Seaweed Contributes To Cloudy Coastal Skies, summarizes findings that scientists at The University of Manchester have helped to identify that the presence of large amounts of seaweed in coastal areas can influence the climate when kelp releases large quantities of inorganic iodine into the coastal atmosphere, where it may contribute to cloud formation.

A scientific paper published online Monday 6 May 2008, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS) identifies that iodine is stored in the form of iodide – single, negatively charged ions. When this iodide is released it acts as the first known inorganic – and the most simple – antioxidant in any living system. The research team also found that large amounts of iodide are released from kelp tissues into sea water as a consequence to the oxidative stress during a defence response against pathogen attack.

Based on their findings, the research team reports that kelps play an important role in the global biogeochemical cycle of iodine and in the removal of ozone close to the Earth's surface. {I am no stranger to begging, so here I am doing it again; anyone happen to have a model for ozone's affect on wind/climate?}
The lead author, Dr. Frithjof Küpper explains, “When kelp experience stress, for example when they are exposed to intense light, desiccation or atmospheric ozone during low tides, they very quickly begin to release large quantities of iodide from stores inside the tissues…These ions detoxify ozone and other oxidants that could otherwise damage kelp, and, in the process, produce molecular iodine.

Large amounts of iodine oxide and volatile halocarbons were measured in the atmosphere above kelp beds and forests. These chemicals act as condensation nuclei around which clouds may form.”

The paper’s co-author, Dr Gordon McFiggans, said, “The findings are applicable to any coastal areas where there are extensive kelp beds…typically places like rocky intertidal zones where kelp can prosper - sandy beaches aren't very good.”

“The increase in the number of cloud condensation nuclei may lead to ‘thicker’ clouds. These are optically brighter, reflecting more sunlight upwards and allowing less to reach the ground, and last for longer. In such a cloud there are a higher number of small cloud droplets and rainfall is suppressed, compared with clouds of fewer larger droplets.”

It recently came to my attention that the relationship between iodine and seaweed had been studied as far back as 1958, The Mechanism of Iodide Accumulation by the Brown Sea Weed Laminaria digitata. The Uptake of 131I , but the importance to iodine from kelp seeding clouds is a relatively more current topic.

Ozone management, encouraging cloud formation (close to shore) and a good rain to flush out airborne pollutants are viable 'air fresheners' that could prevent future 'cosmic' events like the one that zapped Evi.

I don't quite know why this post keeps losing its formatting, but at any rate-- What effect do 'thick' or heavy dark clouds near the shoreline have on pervading winds at sea?

35 Fatir (The Originator of Creation)

وَاللَّهُ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ الرِّيَاحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَابًا فَسُقْنَاهُ إِلَى بَلَدٍ مَّيِّتٍ
فَأَحْيَيْنَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا كَذَلِكَ النُّشُورُ 35:9

35:9 AND it is God who sends the Winds that gather the Clouds; We drive them towards dead land and revive the Earth after it had been lifeless; likewise shall be The Resurrection!

42 Ash-Shura (The Consultation)

42:33 إِن يَشَأْ يُسْكِنِ الرِّيحَ فَيَظْلَلْنَ رَوَاكِدَ عَلَى ظَهْرِهِ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّكُلِّ صَبَّارٍ شَكُورٍ



42:33 if He wills, He stills the Winds, and then they lie motion­less on the Sea’s surface – in this are Signs (messages) for those patient in adversity and deeply grateful...
45 Al-Jathiya (The Kneeling)
45:5 وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ مِنَ السَّمَاء مِن رِّزْقٍ
فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَتَصْرِيفِ الرِّيَاحِ آيَاتٌ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ

45:5 In the difference between Night and Day and whatsoever God sends down from the sky (be it Revelation or Rain, etc) by His Beneficence to enliven with it the Earth after it (lay) lifeless and distribution (release/dispersal/apportioning..of) the Winds are Signs for people who reason (think).

That's why she isn't going to have to kiss anybody, or have another baby, or get married; she can laugh at the Funnies and continue to do the Crossword with impunity; she can cuss like an Old Salt if she feels like it; and yes, it didn't go unnoticed that her browser grabbed that F-bomb session without her having to click 'Publish Post'. Oh, and it does 'Save Now' by the self-same magic.

She Said: 'Why should I care when You've already killed me umpteen different times? What can I Diet next?...I know it's not because You want to see me in a bathing suit... So it must be that You are looking for the Camel to Pass through the Needle's Eye!'







None shall Despair of God's Mercy:



Surah 7 A'raf



7:40 إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُواْ بِآيَاتِنَا وَاسْتَكْبَرُواْ عَنْهَا لاَ تُفَتَّحُ لَهُمْ أَبْوَابُ السَّمَاء

7:40 Truly, they who deny Our Signs and scorn them, for them the gates of Heaven will not be opened nor will they enter the Garden until the camel (large twisted rope) can pass through the needle's eye. This is how We requite the miscreants.



Note: If you must let fly with the Camel TOE jokes, then I stake a claim right here, right now to my share in helping to develop the Theory Of Everything (TOE); just to put some salve on the wound.

Dog Days Of Summer

...or Sirius Poetry

53 Al Najm (The Star/Revelation)

53:49 وَأَنَّهُ هُوَ رَبُّ الشِّعْرَى

53:49 He is the Lord of Sirius (the 'Shining One')


What is it about the brightest star, Sirius, that makes people wax poetic? Even Edgar Allan Poe was not immune to its charm.



EVENING STAR
by Edgar Allan Poe
1827


'Twas noontide of summer,
And mid-time of night;
And stars, in their orbits,
Shone pale, thro' the light
Of the brighter, cold moon,
'Mid planets her slaves,
Herself in the Heavens,
Her beam on the waves.

I gazed awhile On her cold smile;
Too cold–too cold for me-
There pass'd, as a shroud,
A fleecy cloud,
And I turned away to thee,
Proud Evening Star,
In thy glory afar,
And dearer thy beam shall be;


For joy to my heart
Is the proud part
Thou bearest in Heaven at night,
And more I admire
Thy distant fire,
Than that colder, lowly light.


26 Ash-Shu'ara (The Poets)

وَالشُّعَرَاء يَتَّبِعُهُمُ الْغَاوُونَ 26:224

26:224 And the 'errant' follow the poets. (This is the classical interpretation; the primary meaning of مغو is not 'errant' but any one of the following: inductor/seducer/seductive/inticing/incidious/tempting)

A more accurate translation appears to be:
26:225 And the Poets are followed by the Seductive/Seducers...

16 An-Nahl (The Bee)

وَسَخَّرَ لَكُمُ اللَّيْلَ وَالْنَّهَارَ وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ وَالْنُّجُومُ مُسَخَّرَاتٌ بِأَمْرِهِ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ 16:12

16:12 And He has made the night and the day of service/benefit to you, and the sun and the moon and the stars are subservient to His command; in this there are messages for people who use their reason.

86 At-Tariq (The Tariq)

86:1 وَالسَّمَاء وَالطَّارِقِ
86:2 وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الطَّارِقُ
86:3 النَّجْمُ الثَّاقِبُ

86:1 By The Heavens And The Tariq
86:2 And Do You Know (Who Has Tought You) What Is The Tariq?
86:3 A Piercing Star! (A Light/Revelation That Pierces The Darkness)

For homework; what may seem like a disparate collection of poetry and Signs really comes together for the field astronomer who happens to like Egyption mythology and dabbles in linguistics. Connect 'The Dog Star' to the idiomatic expression 'Dog Days of Summer' and the Arabic name of Sirius (Ash-Shi'ra) which if mispronounced can be misconstrued for the Arabic word for Poets (Ash-Shu'ra) to Osiris and then see how that relates to Judaism and Christianity and other World Religions. A special gold star to anyone who can tell me why, in this given instance, the train can and did jump the tracks before my next post. Bonus points if you can relate Poe's 8,8,6 verses to music.

PS I quite enjoyed Sunday's Los Angeles Times Crossword Puzzle. Thanks.

History 101

...or 'Captain Procrastinator'™




There is an interesting entry in Wikipedia regarding Thierville, France with respect to War casualties:

"In France, where the human cost of War was higher than in Britain, Thierville was remarkable as the only village in all of France with no men lost from World War I, nor any memorials constructed in the subsequent period. Amazingly, Thierville also suffered no losses in the Franco-Prussian War and World War II, France’s other bloody war of the modern era."

Time and again, it seems the promise of the Hereafter, is God's MO for how Justice is meted out and what is percieved to be a time lag in realizing such Justice is nothing other than to allow for a way to Respond Mercifully rather than React Viscerally in settling a score.

That is why it is best to stick to 'You Shall Not Kill' and 'Vengeance is Mine! Says the Lord.'

12 Yusuf (Joseph)
12:109 وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ إِلاَّ رِجَالاً نُّوحِي إِلَيْهِم مِّنْ أَهْلِ الْقُرَى أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُواْ فِي الأَرْضِ
فَيَنظُرُواْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَدَارُ الآخِرَةِ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ اتَّقَواْ أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ

12:109 And We never sent before you any but men, from among the people of their own communities, bearing our Revelation. Do they never journey about the Earth and see what happened to those who lived before them?-And haven’t they learned that to those who are conscious of God the life in the Hereafter is indeed better? Will you not reason?

10 Yunus (Jonah)
10:98 فَلَوْلاَ كَانَتْ قَرْيَةٌ آمَنَتْ فَنَفَعَهَا إِيمَانُهَا إِلاَّ قَوْمَ يُونُسَ لَمَّآ آمَنُواْ
كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُمْ عَذَابَ الخِزْيِ فِي الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا وَمَتَّعْنَاهُمْ إِلَى حِينٍ

10:98 There has never been any community that attained to faith and (in so doing) benefited by its faith, except the people of Jonah. When they came to believe, We removed from them the suffering of disgrace in the life of this world, and allowed them ease (pleasure) for their term.

84 Inshiqaaq (Splitting)

Wine,Women, And Song

Hmmmmmmmm, a caning in Malaysia?

Here we go again, thinking our ofds!

Is the unfortunate Malaysian woman's crime that she drinks in public or that she tipples at all?
Honestly, You say 'Land! Land!' and yet I am better off at Sea because I don't know what's making News around the 'landed gentry'--certainly not anything on the basis of any Book I've ever read. Bunch of ILLiterates!

So, once more from the top:

There shall be no compulsion in religion.

2 Al-Baqara (The Cow)

2:256 لاَ إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ الرُّشْدُ مِنَ الْغَيِّ فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِن بِاللّهِ
فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَىَ لاَ انفِصَامَ لَهَا وَاللّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

2:256 Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And God Listens [and is] Omniscient.

There is some benefit to drinking and gambling but best to eskew it. (While sinful its not like Murder!)

2 Al-Baqara (The Cow)

2:219 يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْخَمْرِ وَالْمَيْسِرِ قُلْ فِيهِمَا إِثْمٌ كَبِيرٌ وَمَنَافِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَإِثْمُهُمَآ أَكْبَرُ مِن
نَّفْعِهِمَا وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ مَاذَا يُنفِقُونَ قُلِ الْعَفْوَ كَذَلِكَ يُبيِّنُ اللّهُ لَكُمُ الآيَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَفَكَّرُونَ

2:219 They ask you about wine and gambling. Say: "In them is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit." They ask you how much they are to spend; Say: "What is beyond your needs."God Expounds to you His Signs: In order that you may reflect-

If you judge be sure to temper your judgment with Mercy since that's how you expect to be Judged.

35 Fatir (The Originator of Creation)

35:45 وَلَوْ يُؤَاخِذُ اللَّهُ النَّاسَ بِمَا كَسَبُوا مَا تَرَكَ عَلَى ظَهْرِهَا مِن دَابَّةٍ
وَلَكِن يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى فَإِذَا جَاء أَجَلُهُمْ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِعِبَادِهِ بَصِيرًا

35:45 Now if God were to take men to task for what they do, He would not leave a single living creature upon its surface [the face of the Earth]. But He grants them respite for a set term: when their term expires- they [come to know that] God is Vigilant (of His) servants.

Wine happens to be the drink of choice once you make it past the 'Gate. '

83 Al-Mutaffifin (Those Who Deal in Fraud)

يُسْقَوْنَ مِن رَّحِيقٍ مَّخْتُومٍ 83:25
خِتَامُهُ مِسْكٌ وَفِي ذَلِكَ فَلْيَتَنَافَسِ الْمُتَنَافِسُونَ 83:26

83:25 They [the ones who make it to Heaven] will drink a nectar bearing a seal [stamp]
83:26 pouring out with a fragrance of musk. To that [nectar, or 'wine of paradise'], let them aspire...

PS Please don't have your 'researchers' ruin my lunch again; the food would have gone down better without the 'comments from the galley' about how many courses the meal was or how simply doing the crossword puzzle somehow turns into a fact-finding mission. (And since when does an eggroll count as a third course?) There seems to be a lot of money flying around for mundane stuff like this inane pursuit, so please do as promised and divert it all to my bank account so I can put as much distance between me and what's leftover of them as practicable on ALL Levels.

Dance Of The Seven Veils

Now that I have posted the closest thing I ever got to a love letter, this post should serve as the closest I'll get to dancing.

7 Al-A'raf (The Heights)
7:46 وَبَيْنَهُمَا حِجَابٌ وَعَلَى الأَعْرَافِ رِجَالٌ يَعْرِفُونَ كُلاًّ بِسِيمَاهُمْ
وَنَادَوْاْ أَصْحَابَ الْجَنَّةِ أَن سَلاَمٌ عَلَيْكُمْ لَمْ يَدْخُلُوهَا وَهُمْ يَطْمَعُونَ

7:46 Between them shall be a veil, and on the heights will be men who would know every one in particular (ie, by their name or by their mark): they will call out to the Companions of the Garden, 'Peace!'; they will not have entered, but they will have an assurance.

17 Al-Isra (The Concealed/Secret Journey or The Journey While Captured)(17:45) وَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ الْقُرآنَ جَعَلْنَا بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالآخِرَةِ حِجَابًا مَّسْتُورًا

17:45 When you recite the Quran, We put, between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter, an invisible veil

19 Maryam (Mary)(19:17) فَاتَّخَذَتْ مِن دُونِهِمْ حِجَابًا فَأَرْسَلْنَا إِلَيْهَا رُوحَنَا فَتَمَثَّلَ لَهَا بَشَرًا سَوِيًّا

(19:17) She screened (veiled) herself from them; then We sent her Our Angel, and he appeared before her as a man in all respects... (except ,based on my careful observation, he was well-spoken, didn't have any B.O. and was very polite--that's how I knew he wasn't from around here)
38 Suad ص

(38:32) فَقَالَ إِنِّي أَحْبَبْتُ حُبَّ الْخَيْرِ عَن ذِكْرِ رَبِّي حَتَّى تَوَارَتْ بِالْحِجَابِ

(38:32) And (Solomon) He said, "Truly do I love the love of good, in remembrance of my Sustainer,"- even as (he was) hidden behind the veil

...Some time in May or June 2012 I discovered why only a Prophet like Solomon can say such a thing, once having Pierced the Veil. He had enough Wisdom and Compassion not to 'kill them all' having learned just how much Power He wielded that was shielded from Him on the Earthly Plane--quite the achievement, since I've seen how He gets when He Sees Red!


BTW when we pray "Assalumu 3lika ayuha al.naby" and seeing how We do not make a distinction or differentiate between the Prophets, the salutation address whomever happens to be the Prophet(s) present at the moment and not necessarily Muhammed pbuh every time. Did You know that?




41 Fussilat (The Criterion)
(41:5) وَقَالُوا قُلُوبُنَا فِي أَكِنَّةٍ مِّمَّا تَدْعُونَا إِلَيْهِ وَفِي آذَانِنَا وَقْرٌ وَمِن بَيْنِنَا وَبَيْنِكَ حِجَابٌ فَاعْمَلْ إِنَّنَا عَامِلُونَ

(41:5) They say: "Our hearts are veiled from that to which you invite us, and in our ears is a deafness, and between us and you is a veil: so do (as you do); for us, we shall do (as we do)"

42 Ash-Shu'ra (The Poets)
(42:51) وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاء حِجَابٍ
أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاء إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ

42:51 It is not fitting for a man that God should speak to him except by inspiration, or as from behind a veil, or by sending a messenger to reveal with His permission, what God wills: for He is The Highest, Most Wise.
83 Al-Mutaffifin (Those Who Give Short Measure)(83:15) كَلَّا إِنَّهُمْ عَن رَّبِّهِمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ لَّمَحْجُوبُونَ

(83:15) Verily, from their Lord, on that Day, will they be veiled.

And that is no way a veiled threat. We've seen this type of thing before and took the trouble to make a note of it some 1400++ years ago-- by your reckoning.

Surah 48 Al-Fat.h (فتح, The Opening, Conquest, Victory, Unsealing, Unfolding)

Not Much Of A Poker Face

40 Ghafir (The Forgiving)قَالُوا رَبَّنَا أَمَتَّنَا اثْنَتَيْنِ وَأَحْيَيْتَنَا اثْنَتَيْنِ فَاعْتَرَفْنَا بِذُنُوبِنَا فَهَلْ إِلَى خُرُوجٍ مِّن سَبِيلٍ 40:11

40:11 They will say: "Our Lord! Twice You have caused us to die, and twice You have given us Life! Now that we confess our wrongdoing: How do we get out of this?"

The children ask, 'Why was the Quran handed down in Arabic?'
I am sure there is a beatific explanation for it, but since I am emotionally retarded I got the pragmatic one. For example,
Isma' .el Is.hak= God Heard (what) is (the) Truth

At once this gives the relationship between these brothers and demonstrates Arabic's function as a language bridge.

Since no one was around to hear my side of the story, this is what He heard:



A word can be 2, 3, 4 letter blocks and so on and from that basic form it can be conjugated to form the femme and masculine as well as the part of speech and/or a verb and its tense. That Arabic is elliptical means you can say much by saying very little.

Life in these United States familiarizes one with all sorts of derogatory terms having to do with Camels, one is complimentary as in the case of Joe Cool (Camel Cigarettes Mascot), but for the most part not so much. However, in other parts of the world, the camel is a dutiful animal and carries out its Master's will. Such is the case in the allegorical reference to the she-camel.

54 Al-Qumar (The Moon)
إِنَّا مُرْسِلُو النَّاقَةِ فِتْنَةً لَّهُمْ فَارْتَقِبْهُمْ وَاصْطَبِرْ 54:27
54:27 We are letting loose this she-camel (Our female servant) as a test for them; and you but watch them, and patiently control yourself.
91 Ash-Shams (The Sun)
فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَعَقَرُوهَا فَدَمْدَمَ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُم بِذَنبِهِمْ فَسَوَّاهَا 91:14
91:14 But they gave him the lie, and cruelly hamstrung (crippled/disabled) her (the she-camel/Our female servant) - so their Sustainer punished them for their sin equally (Dear God, (swt) please have Mercy).
For homework, one interesting exercise is to try and convert each letter in the Quran to 1 and space to 0 to see if anything of interest emerges. Another variation would be to make the consonants 1 and the vowls 0 and vice versa.

HomeLand1 Love Letter

Draft

The post as it appears at WAPO comment to the article Finding God on the Internet; and I think this is as close as anything I am ever going to get to a love letter.


'Before I begin; It is important to mention Her Honorable Eunice [Kennedy] Shriver [pbuh] who was like Indias "Mother Terresa" [pbuh], but helped countles 'Disadvantaged' Kids and was an upholder, like her Late Prez & Brother Honorable Mr. J.F.K. [pbuh], whom besides encouraging "Good Physical Hygiene" & "Olymipcs" in all the Lands Schools etc.. was a great Promotor of the Virtual INTERNET [Zero Holy].
--
When it Comes to "Satsag" (Congregating/Meeting) that each of Us are an Priest or Priestest. Is to say that by Communicating With All Yo All on WAPO, here, is like a 'Sat-Sag' of its own; or lets say Meeting Of the Mind; DIGiTALLY [0's & 1's, bits & bites, Mega, Gida, Tetra..]!
Yes, Thank The "CYBER G-D's" & the "Cyber Massiah's" (Founders) for Bringing Or Opportunitizing, The GLOBAL-COMMUNITY to Interface Rhiteously as one Big Giant "HARD-DRIVE"!.
Note: I Made my own Little Personal Fortune (not like the big time 'Dot Com' opportunists/players) from the Internet when the Miraculous (G.raphic U.ser I.nterface) "NETSCAPE-BROWSER" came out.
Acsually I was on the Internet Before It became "Public" Internet # 2 Pipe & "Nodes" (#1 pipe & "NODE" is for GOV. & Universitys, science..) spun-off via the "National Science Foundation" way back Pre-1990 when all we had was a black Screnn & White Fonts. i.e. DOS, UNIX, CPM-86... operating Systems (Kernels).
I used to pitch (1989+) the up & comming Internet , aka New Frontier, as an "ELECTRONIC STORE FRONT" that ALL The World can See you & folks did not understand.
Remember "You've Got Mail"? [1st AOL internert Provider & that experience}
Now suddenly every body is NURD or GURU!

PS: Tavern On the Green was my 1st Customer & I would Host (Server) their & other "Clients" Sights at 1-World Trade Center until them SATANIC lovin Versing Jihaddists took , what they could never Create on their Own, Them Down via OUr (not Their) but Hijacked Aeroplanes.
Now Al Islam Has the Internet to Spread their Poison/Dillussion once more. What "TWITS"!
Question: As PROPHETS & maybe god(s); Who Founded the Holy Internet? aJew, aChristian, aMuslom, aHindu, aBuddhist.. Man or Virtual Man?'

POSTED BY: HOMELAND1 AUGUST 11, 2009 6:54 PM

It's a long tough slog to get through this much info but the crux of the matter is the 9-11 hijackers had their biological clocks altered and they believed it was 3:00...my virtual friend also tells me that I resent being kidnapped, I think he said his name is A Ness. Will update when I am closer to being certain. Oh, and it seems he didn't take kindly to you threatening the Professor.

First take on it:
“You and I seek an end and given the importance of His cause and ‘salute’ Him in His cause, and as it were in the Los Angeles Olympics and lands in all the schools of medicine, newpapers, including cartoons encourage the material. It’s real big on the Internet to promote the way of Zero and those ‘silly dog?’ ‘threat to the presence of the Professor’s analysis’ in a secret meeting/conference. In general, can also contact/check WAPO Saturday …or telepath via 0, 1 and numbers up to terabytes. Yes, X CIA Government, via Level 3 communications and the level of the ‘Massiah’ and “Network” (founder)….”difficult” to interact with the world community, and we can build it.

Note: In the greater scheme of things, love not RITORDUOTTUKOMU (I think the word is RETRIBUTION--I'm a little slow that's why this is still a draft 2.2.2010) the opportunity to play or not and I have embedded your face, my friend, in the Netscape GUI on the Internet…

On this page over the Internet and Actual Internet #2 “contract” to see the Number’1 cause “local” time to “public radio and Universities, and Research Institutes…with the cause, “National Science Foundation” back in 1990 had written a white paper. This means that the operating system costs CPM—86 cause the system to be the key means to a United Kingdom (1989 and forward), as the Internet moves to new areas so does this world. (from the m dash forward it could also read '86 ....(kernl).' or 'end the KERNEL campaign' but I am not so optomistic to think they have any such compassion.

'“Electron transaction” is called ‘Arabs’ ('a Rab's= 'Unto God's), but you cannot see. (And why am I not privvy to the show?--oh, its b} i'm dead and while all the other 'girls' get to go shopping or make jewelry, I get the blue prints to build something like I have all the resources or intelligence in the world and i don't already have enough to do for little or no benefit to me whatsoever,,,i guess i can be very selfish and bitter if i want2)

Do you remember ‘You've Got Mail’? One piece of experience during the AOL inert internet? Most or all ‘Biogenerated and U R DAN!’

Simmonds='In a similar fashion' or 'See me on dis'? My first ‘customers’ were those green devils …World Trade Center… I caused an error in the Jihaddists biological clock (3:00 pm)... and other attractions and He is the one whose ‘kidnapping’ in His cause you cannot accept?

Islam, is the Web’s new septic tank divides (segregates/separates) dillusion and ‘spreading stupid’ again. 'Idiots!'

Qaf (50) or Mark 5 or Question: The rhetoric and the opportunity within God’s Holy cause to see (Return) AJew, AChristian, AMuslim, AHindu, ABuddist…Is this the construction that of a virtual local (neighboring/confined/limited) person or persons?

I think computer sees something like this: =IF((True=”Jew”, “Christian”, “Muslim”, “Hindu”, “Buddhist”…,"1","0")

PS I am still trying to decipher this but think Google got it yesterday, its doing something like an iterative language translation (Gida=General Iterative Decoding Attack) using Google tools and for a precedent I started with the English and translated succesively based on who bombed who (language order based on order of conquests througout history), for a more advanced maybe more accurate reading try going back to the order of conquest on the Planet up to modern day... I don't happen to have a Cray Computer at my disposal and I have to work for a living...

Based on what is given, here is my carefully-worded response: I know why You draw fire to Yourself, but we both know how it really went down and You know in Truthness this is not about me! They show no sign of stopping their 'cosmic' 'get-love-out-of-jail' 'Kernel' campaign...and methinks its not funny. BTW my brain is Your HSKH B}?...did you run out of paper or virtual space or somethnig? And I have a better idea-- You stay with Your friends who like to play dead and then ditch me and build it here, but next time You send the 'car' around please make sure both kids are with me and I don't care if your Messenger does give me the silent treatment, I like what You built over There ; )

PSS: Why are there depth charges going off under my house? Neuremberg Role Disaster playing game=NURD? Gee You Are You or Great Understanding Relatively Useless =GURU?

Anyone care to check whether the planes that flew into the world trade center were even produced by 2001? That means checking all the serial numbers of all the parts and verifying they were produced by the time of the unfortunate event.

Idiots aren'te we all? Your glib take explains the media, internet, published papers even, but what about the biogenerated units, and Your 3 Ambassadors to date? If they don't really exist, I want to have my stretch marks disappear by tomorrow morning, just like everything else around here and a ton of valuable currency in my bank account, that I can have access to so I can finally go shopping.

The NURD proposition that You are me and that I am just part of a virtual role playing game doesn't fly by me, because it's all too late for that. Primarily because the incessant pain keeps everything all too REAL. While everyone else is taken by the UFO sky show, the aliens I see are driving up to me, walking up to me, or trascend the space-time continuum such as in Michael's case and none of them look like some woman gave birth to them or that they can be a product of anyOne's imagination save God's. I was especially taken by the one who seemed to bend light and project images of objects just by staring into space and You and i know he was no way virtual or some random combination of DNA.


See me on this: The stretch marks haven't vanished and I am telepathing a very large number up to terabytes in currency (all 1's) that is still worth something around this so-called-virtual realm because I think I can have more fun accomplishing what I am doing here just by picking out the right pair of shoes and clothes with the proper drape and cut.

And we both know I haven't had a bed to sleep in for over a decade by now.

PSS: 'Booger' this and that means "it's happening right under their noses" and 'George' ='Geo r ja 'ee' means "Return to Earth' which as You know I made the call as prompted that day and what was supposed to be a 'tincture of time' has amounted to over a dozen years their local time and I have no intentions of doing any such thing and You Know Why!

HomeLand1 Comment

Draft or Just May B Daft

Either someone is paying me a very high compliment by following this blog or they just ordered a hit on me.
Some play ping-pong, some walk around the block, but for lunch I sit at my desk and surf the Web (Net). I make no pretentions about the content I pursue; today I was at the Washington Post (WAPO) site looking for the latest cartoons—yes, a true testimony to the level of my intelligence these days--when I came across an article with commentary Searching for God on the Internet, by Ramdas Lamb. It had two comments posted by Homeland1 and I thought it would serve as a useful example of Meaning and Language Usage at A Page In The Life.

What follows is each comment along with a possible interpretation. Only the person posting the comment knows what their intended meaning is and of course each reader is invited to make sense of it in light of their own unique experience set. As an aside, I thought the username was funny because I ain’t got no Home and I don’t see no Land—thanks!

Every orthogonal matrix has determinant either 1 or −1. The orthogonal n-by-n matrices with determinant 1 form a normal subgroup of O(n,F) known as the special orthogonal group SO(n,F).

If the characteristic of F is 2, then 1 = −1, hence O(n,F) and SO(n,F) coincide; otherwise the index of SO(n,F) in O(n,F) is 2. In characteristic 2 and even dimension, many authors define the SO(n,F) differently as the kernel of the Dickson invariant; then it usually has index 2 in O(n,F).

Simplex Signals
It is conjectured that among all possible M-ary signals with equal energy, the simplex signal set results in the smallest probability of error when used to transmit information through an additive white Gaussian noise channel.

The geometric representation of signals can provide a compact description of signals and can simplify performance analysis of communication systems using the signals.

Once signals have been modulated, the receiver must detect and demodulate the signals despite interference and noise and decide which of the set of possible transmitted signals was sent.

The main reason for using M-ary signaling is when high information transfer rates are required over low bandwidth channels. Orthogonal M-ary signaling can overcome this limitation.

Different signals are transmitted at different levels, with the difference being that the shape of the signals is also varied. This makes better use of available bandwidth, and error rates decrease as M increases. M-ary orthogonal signaling systems can approach the Shannon channel capacity as M tends to infinity.

Note that for M-ary signals it is meaningful to talk about the baud rate, which is the number of symbols transmitted per second.

Quran 6 An-'Am (Cattle)

6:95 It is God who splits the Kernel and the Datestone. He draws out the living from the dead, and brings forth the dead from the living. That is God, how are you untouched (by Him)?

'The "KERNEL" is the 'SOUL' of both PC's & 'Virtual-Reality' of the Internet or desk-top!'Translation:

The Knowledge Extraction and Refinement by Neural Learning (Kernel, aka toxic exposure and torture of involuntary human subjects?) is the Soundtrack(Follow-the-Sound) Of Our Lives; or more likely Special Orthogonal Matrix UpLoad (SOUL) of both Physical Contractions (PCs) and ‘Virtual Reality’ of the 'confined Extra Terrestial’ (intern(ed) ET) and Earthling (desk-top=Table=T-able=Terra-able)!

'Note:The "ZERO's (0) & the "ONE's are the "Neurons/Synapsis" and the Results of such "Internet INFO" is what it Is:'

Translation
Note: Neurons extract meaningful information from sensory receptor arrays at the organism's periphery and translate these into action, imagery and memory.
Synapses may facilitate or impede impulses thru the system; the pattern of facilitation or inhibition determine the pattern of transmission through the system. The zero's explanation reveals origin cos (0) and the Open Network Environment's output from the confined ET fiber optic Intelligence Network (or they are telling me to F**K O**) is what is Intelligence Systems:


'A Man Made Tool, such that, that Internet is another "Wonders Of [HU{eMATE made] the World... Fo ALL To ENJOY & a Tool To LEARN by & Between ALL Creatures on EARTH & Beyond too! '

'Beside S.S. Earth, a MIRACLE in Motion (zero SINaps) as a signs of these times, Even the HOLY GRAIL of an Internet is a [Virtual] Miracle. Not Real; but an "ELECTRON-SOUL" & Virtual CONSCIOUSNESS! '

Break it down:
Beside Space Ship Earth, the SSBN Communications Project (US Navy) in M Ocean (Zero's Explanation Reveals Origin Support Information Network Advance Planning System (USAF)) as signs of these times, Eve and the Human Genome of that pathetic alien is a Virtually isolated/confined ssbn communications project. Not Real; but an 'Electron Soul' and virtual consciousness! (This is how you tell me I'm dead, you MFRs?! I want my body remanded to my biological children and their biological father immediately and see to it that they never want or need for anything for the rest of their lives--you cost us so much for nothing, I was already doing this kind of work for an environmental agency before all this BS...)

Defense Of The Ancients

DOTA Lyrics by Basshunter

Swedish
Vi Sitter här i Venten och Spelar Lite Dota:

Vi sitter här i venten och spelar lite DotA.
(I hear you man.)
Vi sitter här i venten och spelar lite DotA.
(I feel you man.)

Vi sitter här i venten och spelar lite DotA å pushar på å smeker,
med motståndet vi leker.
Vi sitter här i venten och spelar lite DotA å springer runt å creepar,
och motståndet vi sleepar.

Let's get it on.

English
That’s the only thing you do all day long,
you sit on that Ventrilo and play DotA:

We’re sitting here in Ventrilo,
playing some DotA,
(I hear you man)
We’re sitting here in Ventrilo,
playing some DotA,
(I feel you man)

We’re sitting here in Ventrilo,
playing some DotA,
We push on and we’re owning,
With the opponents we’re toying,
We’re sitting here in Ventrilo,
playing some DotA,
Running around creeping,
The opponents we’re sleeping,

Let’s get it on



Even the kids get it!
At this level, war seems like such a waste of life, resources, and a bit redundant--don't you think?

Area 51, Knowledge, Information And Power

"Knowledge is power."
Sir Francis Bacon

'The creation of a matrix organization can also be considered as management's response to a persistent or permanent demand for adaptation to environmental dynamics, instead of the response to episodic demands.'
Information and organization management theory mainly developed at Carnegie Mellon University

"Math is the Language of the Universe. "
Galileo Galilei

"I do not know what Al-Harauriyya ('Ibra-him'--break it down) is, but I heard the Prophet saying, "There will appear in this nation---- he did not say: From this nation ---- a group of people so pious apparently that you will consider your prayers inferior to their prayers, but they will recite the Quran, the teachings of which will not go beyond their throats and will go out of their religion as an arrow darts through the game, whereupon the archer may look at his arrow, its Nasl at its Risaf and its Fuqa to see whether it is blood-stained or not" (i.e. they will have not even a trace of Islam in them--in other words, you didn't see it coming and it penetrated clean).
Hadith

"This is a Tool; learn how to use it."
Mom

Area 51 holds a great deal of intrigue for UFO fans, the most compelling reason behind the fascination being the mantle of secrecy the US government enshrouds it with that serves to only make it more of a target for those who feel the need to know what is going on out there. And the curiosity is not limited to our citizens alone, but it piques the interest of non-US citizens, too.

One recent case, as reported by CNN, is that of British subject Gary McKinnon who is about to be extradited to face charges here in the US for allegedly hacking into our government computers, including Pentagon and NASA computers, in search of the furtive UFO information. It is reported that McKinnon suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome, which probably made his compulsion to find out all the more irresistible.

However this case settles out, I hope the US government goes easy on him. For one thing, it would appear he was driven by seeking knowledge for his own edification rather than any malice to disrupt or crash the computers. His activities probably exposed security gaps that needed shoring up in order to prevent someone with more sinister motives from accessing the information and causing some real damage down the line. He may have done us a favor and maybe we should hire him--maybe even pay for his services upon hire?

Some might say hoarding knowledge and information is tyranny disguised as prudence, and on the flip side there are others that hold a more liberal view. Information, knowledge, and their connection to who holds the reins of power is why it may not have been by random chance that the first word of the first Revelation in the Quran was the Injunction to Read (which also means Recite).

Surah 96 Al ‘alaq (That Which Clings)

"Read! In the name of your Lord who Created.
Created Man from ‘that which clings.’
Read! And your Lord is Most Generous.
Who has taught by the Pen (Writing Instrument),
Taught Man what he knew not."
(96:1-5)
Area 51, (NxN Information Matrix)

(Derived from Surah Numbers containing a 51st verse that also open with disconnected letters, the first Chapter included to make it a square matrix and since it is the opening Chapter. Chapter 42 is appears twice since it has 2 sets of muqatia'at).

1,2,7,8,10

Determinant=-1440 (geometry= left-handed orientation in Euclidian space); Trace=148; Inverse Determinant=-0.001; Eigenvalues 142.098188, 12.087482, -6.186...

The Mariana Trench is located at 11◦ 5’ N 142◦ 12’ E; the first 2 Eigenvalues resolve to 12◦ 5’ N 142◦ 5’ E which is proximate to the Mariana Trench. The next Eigen vector proximate to Papua New Guinea. No creature can predict the future with any kind of certainty, least of all me, but judging by the numbers I wonder if there will be any major Seismic activity along the Trench in 2019 C.E.?

A crash course in Information Matrices (3 minutes) indicates that the higher the value of the Information Matrix the more likely the information is valuable, but I also take it to mean a calendar reference and we are in the year 1430 based on the Islamic calendar.

I could be wrong, but is there anyone following A Page In The Life that can double check my meandering Mystical Math?

--Here I am talking to myself--
'Why couldn't I be among the truly lucky ones and predict the winning lottery numbers or stock market direction instead of some far off event a decade from now?'
Oh, they might need that much time to plan for it?
'And if I am wrong?'
Well--so what?--it creates jobs for now.
Surah 51 Zaryati (The Scattering Winds)وَلَا تَجْعَلُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَهًا آخَرَ إِنِّي لَكُم مِّنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ 51:51

51:51 And do not ascribe divinity to any beside God; I am a plain Warner to you from Him.





Surah 2 The Calf

ذَلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِين2:2

2:2 This is a Scripture in which there is no doubt; a guidance for the Believers.

Surah 3 Al'Imran
3:3 نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقاً لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَأَنزَلَ التَّوْرَاةَ وَالإِنجِيلَ

3:3 He has revealed The Scripture to you in Truth; confirming what is in His hands; as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel



Surah 7 Al -A'Raf


7:7 فَلَنَقُصَّنَّ عَلَيْهِم بِعِلْمٍ وَمَا كُنَّا غَآئِبِينَ

7:7 We will impart to them Our knowledge; for never have We been absent
[For those more technically and analytically evolved, investigate primes v. non-primes, evens, etc. if you are so inclined. That's why those who can't do-- teach, they never seem to have all the equipment or help they need at their disposal--a trade off from having to pack light. I never knew there was such a thing as an Information Matrix or even Information Geometry before today.]
