"I said to the Man, "Are you trying to tempt me? Because I come from the Land of Plenty." "--Men Without Hats

The word 'al.takathr' has the root كثر 'kthr' meaning 'many', and forms the basis for words like 'kathr' meaning 'propagate', and 'tkathr', the noun meaning 'multiplication.' Taken as a noun it is also synonymous with:
increase, propagation, proliferation, reproduction, generation, breed; and the verb form means all of the following:


Sign 102:1 appears to be making the observation that 'you are lulled or distracted by al.takathr' and on a superficial level this would indicate what is true about most people, that they like to accumulate things or partake of luxuries, yes, even that they enjoy s.e.x. (reproduction, spawning, breeding...)---well, nothing wrong with that. The problem develops when the propagation goes akimbo.

A friend once said to me that when he writes he likes to write as though he is addressing a very specific demographic--teenage boys. For no other reason than that his writing voice seems to resonate with them, since they like to think and speak as though they are so worldly but realistically how much of the world have they come to know when they have only made the trip around the Sun less times than they have fingers and toes?

So, basically he was telling me to state my case in a way that the pretentious jaded can grasp the subtext at a very simple level. I only bring this up because I am finding it hard to come up with a succint example of what is not so obvious about Sign 102:1 without it sounding like I am doing just what my friend found easiest to do--say it like I am talking to a teenager.

So, here it goes; The problem with proliferation to the point of distraction is the same problem we in the States have with s.e.x.

An alien watching the plentiful outlay of the adult entertainment industry can key right into it. By watching it they will know that the objective was probably to go out and 'invent better sex' but what it turns into is just 'weirder sex'-- somehow, in the race to produce more of it, it loses all quality or semblence or purpose to the original, to the point that it is not even practicable and the viewer is just out the $1.99 viewing fee and the actors need to continue on their meds--there, I said it.

Surah 102 Al-Takathur (Proliferation...)
أَلْهَاكُمُ التَّكَاثُرُ 102:1
102:2 حَتَّى زُرْتُمُ الْمَقَابِرَ
كَلَّا سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ 102:3
ثُمَّ كَلَّا سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ 102:4
كَلَّا لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ عِلْمَ الْيَقِينِ 102:5
َتَرَوُنَّ الْجَحِيمَ 102:6
ثُمَّ لَتَرَوُنَّهَا عَيْنَ الْيَقِينِ 102:7
ثُمَّ لَتُسْأَلُنَّ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَنِ النَّعِيمِ 102:8

102:1 alhakum altakathur
102:2 hhata zurtum almaqabr
102:3 k.la sawfa ta'lamoon
102:4 thuma k.la sawfa ta'lamoon
102:5 k.la la.w ta'lamoon 'lm alyaqeen
102:6 tarawna aljahheem
102:7 thuma l.taraoonaha 'ayina alyaqeen
102:8 thuma latasa.loonna yaw.maya'then 'an alna'eem

102:1 you are distracted by proliferation; you are preoccupied with increase/luxury/breeding
102:2 until you visit the graves; even after you have visited the graveyards
102:3 both shall you know; both shall you impart/learn; No!(Never!) a delay/putting off of coming to know (either)
102:4 then (again)both shall you know; both shall you impart/learn; No!(Never!) a delay/putting off knowing (either)
102:5 Both if you learn with Certain Knowledge
102:6 You can see Hell (conflagration)
102:7 Then you can see it with a sure eye; then you can see it appointed/ordained certainly; then you can see it with an eye of certitude
102:8 then not wonder/ask whether harmful/harmless from bliss; then you will be asking which day on/about Heaven/bliss.

But the Quran does not only concern itself with the mundane, and in knowing what to look for it is just as likely that Surah 102 posits the following embedded message...

The word for distraction or diversion also means beguile and lark is 'lahua' which is the root of the word al.hakum meaning you are distracted or amuzed/beguiled. (It may be worthwhile to mention that the word for 'lark' is also ''qbreht" قبرة and is very similar to the word for 'tomb' or 'grave' 'qbr' ). But if Sign 102:1 is broken down to its most rudimentary forms we get something like:

102:1 al.hakum al.t.ka.thr= the 'hack' for M (matter) is the T (time) propagation;

And various nuances are derived from the sound of this depending on the speed with which Sign 102:1 is read, including intonation of the following syllables and their meanings:

Thr==extend;expand;run at full horsepower speed;work at full power
Al t kathr==the time propagate; extend; run at full horsepower speed; work at full power;

al. taka. thr==where taka means energy/potential and then 'thr' given above
al. tak. Kathr where tak==tachometer;

{On a personal note, it sounds like someOne out there has very keen insight into how I feel when I drive my car; and I am amuzed and beguiled by it especially when I open it up at full horsepower/speed and manage (with Your help) to dodge that last speeding ticket, for which I thank You.}

Back to the Words at hand:

Sign 102:1 is also referring to the 'hack' for M which would mean to hew, slice through, sculpt, cut matter is T (time) propagation (all this from alhakm); and 'altakathr' follows indicating the way T propagates is by running at full horsepower/speed or working at full power and also embedded is the word 'tak' (for tachometer) which in this context has to also be at full speed--phunny physics.

{Ohhh, now I get it; why all those old Honeymooner episodes were so funny. I had always thought that the funny part was trying to figure out what Alice saw in Ralph; but given this new insight it appears there was something even funnier going on. Every time Alice would ask 'What's the Matter Ralph?" he would get through explaining his predicament for the day to which Alice always had a non-sympathetic response and then Ralph would say, 'To the Moon, Alice! To the Moon!" She liked that he was going to 'hack' into the Matter by accelerating her to the Moon and I guess that was the attraction!}

But whether it is accelerating Alice at full speed or an electron Sign 102:2 has something more to add:

102:2 hata zrtm almaqabr

ht=="degrade" and it is spelled with the letter E at the end, interchangeable with the letter Y (the weak hypercharge); and while hata also means until, it also means Even or to level out/even out

zrtm==you visit, but also means to inspect something or realize; in this case M, for matter, or it could mean that matter is going somewhere given by:

al. maqabr==a 'qbr' is a grave or tomb and the prefix ma.qabr means what entombs or buries M; matter's graveyard. And it is fitting to remember that qabr also means a lark or trick, a deception.

But if it is the Y that is the subject of 102:2 then this is understood to mean that the weak hypercharge which is even is degraded until you observe that it dies out or you recognize a state of chaos. ( I know this sounds like lunacy, but I am not a particle physicist--let's just leave it at that).

The wording in 102:3 and 102:4 is identical except that the repeat in 102:4 is prefaced with 'Then' or 'And then'...

Sign 102:5 is very specific as to the manner by which the next observation is made. The overall context is that you will come to know or learn both states (the proliferation and the grave) with a certainty but it is parsed out along with 102:7 as follows:

102:5 k.la la.w t.a'lamoon 'lm alyaqeen

102:5 both if T is known with certainty...

102:7 thuma l.taraoonaha 'ayina alyaqeen

102:7 and then you can see it (chaos/pandemonium/degraded state of Y;E or what happens to matter when it is 'buried') with the 'eye of certitude' (implies an instrument with some type aperture or sensor that has very high accuracy and practically zero uncertainty in the measurement/observation).

Signs 102:1-102:5 lead to gaining a perspective or view of al.jaheem mentioned in Sign 102:6. 'Jaheem' is pandemonium or chaos, and when qualified with the definitive 'al-jaheem' it is usually understood to mean Hell. But Hell means different things to different people and in the case under discussion the context of chaos or pandemonium is more germain to our discussion having to do with matter and time and acceleration and physics in general. (3/3/10 LA Times crossword, 24D on point = germane, so I stand corrected; one of the benefits of not working with an Editor; and according to 57A '1963 Elvis hit with the lyrics 'You look like an angel..but I got wise'==ans. Devil In Disguise (no need to jump to conclusions, I always thought being a poor speller was just a genetic defect...)

And presumably Sign 102:8 gives some indication as to what answer this set of observations is meant to provide:

102:8 thuma latasa.loonna yaw.maya'then 'an alna'eem

102:8 and then to ask on that day (about) charm/beauty or where matter's 'death is recorded'; then ask 'harmless or harmful/deleterious' charm/beauty on boon/increase/see 'takathur'? /simply put 'you will no longer wonder the effects of appointing charm and beauty (grace) on increase/gain...'

It is generally taken for granted that both Surah 102 Takathur and 108 Kawthar are addressing Plentitude for sharing the word with the root 'kthr'. But According to anecdotal evidence (hadith is based on verbal history), al-Kawthar (a word which appears at the end of Sign 108:1) was said to be the name of a River in Heaven, and after a single sip from its waters those embibing it would never feel hunger or thirst again.

Some say the word has its root in a similar word for 'abundance' or 'plenty' (takathur, see Surah 102 above) which may or may not apply as well, but the root 'wathr' واثر means impact/meaning/importance/significance/ worth/value and this also applies in this case since the Prophet did rise to prominence and garner a following among those understanding the Message.

What is even more Significant is that Surah 108 is one of the shortest Surahs in the Quran and it would imply that its very few words should have a very strong Impact/Significance to whomever is reading/reciting it.

In the historical sense, the next 2 Signs would allude to the fact that the Prophet was given the injunction to worship God and observe making Sacrifice as well as recognize that he (pbuh) did suffer the slings and arrows of those very much averse to what he was on about which caused him a great deal of anxiety.

The word 'alisha'ni.aka' is literally broken down to mean that 'thing/business/concern/object...' and the emphasis is placed using 'aka' putting 'stress on the fact' that whatever the matter, it was most noisome to the Prophet and it had been rendered ineffective or literally 'amputated' ('abtr') or cut off from the body. By extension, many understand this to mean that if it was people or persons causing the Prophet difficulties that they would have no progeny or followers of their own as a consequence. Well, at least that's how the historical context goes.

Surah 108 Al-Kawthar (Abundance)
إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ 108:1
فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ 108:2
إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الْأَبْتَرُ 108:3

108:1 inna a'taynaka alkawthar
108:2 f.sulli lirabaka wa.anhhar
108:3 in shani.yaka huwa alabtr

108:1 Lo! We gave you significance/meaning/impact/importance
108:2 so pray/connect/contact your Lord and sacrifice
108:3 that concern/business/unease/distress/thing/matter/anxiety/'pigeon' he is cut off/severed/amputated/maimed/crippled/tailless (without following/without progeny)

But we know that the Quran, as with any sanctioned Scripture, has more dimension to it than to merely relate a personal history lesson and whatever message it imparts is intended for the maximal benefit; that's why in other contexts these Signs carry altogether different Meanings (positive and not meant to do harm, and if clearly understood, to give us some insight as to its Source).

And based on the foregoing precepts found at A Page... eeeeventually, I just Knew we would get to the Flying Lesson (makes it very difficult for me to stay mad at You).

Surah 108 Al-Kawthar (Abundance, but literally The KOTHR, CWTHR, CAWTHR, KWTHR...)
108:1 Look! Observe! (ie. Pay Attention) We gave you the Knowledge Object/Carrier Wave? True Heading/Threshhold Requirement 108.1 (deg)
108:2 Thereby Connect/Separate to/from your Controller (l.r.b. 'use' the little red button; lrbk 'at right below the knee') and 'slit the throat'= 'Cut The Throttle' (an,hr=that/to, free/open/release)
108:3 That/To anxiety-causing thing= 'put stress on the object'/'easy mark', he is tailless (No Tailwind at 108.3 deg; tailless body/craft; craft moored facing no particular direction; and the stress caused has to do with shear stress and pressure probably; and if the threshold Reynold's number is 108.1 then it is laminar flow on par with what one would expect in blood flow to the brain...)

Knowledge Object is detected from the first syllable 'ko' of the word 'kothr' (the o and w are interchangeable, so are the k and c). According to a wiki, Knowledge Objects are different than everyday things and are defined as unfolding structures that are non-identical with themselves (sounds a lot like 'Quran' to me; unfolding==revelation; non-identical==message varies depending on the need; and it's no longer a poorly kept secret that I need my Spaceship back!)

The KeyWord is likely embedded in Sign 108:1 as well, but it is hard to say whether it is deux. seh. oct. dec. or hex.; as is the word ClockWise.


O, Ewes Guys!

...quit making fun of my Brooklyn accent.

"It is madness for sheep to talk peace with a wolf."
--Thomas Fuller
Surah 8 Al-Anfal (The Spoils of War)

إِذْ تَسْتَغِيثُونَ رَبَّكُمْ فَاسْتَجَابَ لَكُمْ أَنِّي مُمِدُّكُم بِأَلْفٍ مِّنَ الْمَلآئِكَةِ مُرْدِفِينَ 8:9

8:9 If/When you plead/ed with God (to Intercede) and He Responded (s) to you, indeed He Extended (s) (outspread, expanded, prolonged, protracted) 1,000 Angels 'murdifoon' 'arranged in rank' (but the primary meaning here of 'rdf' is 'buttocks'--and don't be laughing just yet).

'The Lord is My Shepherd' not because I am a sheep (or ewe, whatever the case might be), but because I belong to His 'Fold' (a crash course on Tay-al-Ard is called for a this juncture). And a cut-and-paste illustration might help some, too.

Be cautioned that the 2-dimensional illustration is a bit misleading but is only being used for convenient reference. Misleading in that the figure of the soldier practicing a Military Parachute Landing Fall is doing just that and he is not actually rotating in space. From his perspective he is going through maneuvers, or engaged in battle or doing whatever he is being called on to do.

The soldier is used as the example here because of the use of the word 'murdifin' which does refer to the 'Buttocks', the 4th point of a textbook military parachute landing fall. And while the rest of the illustration is attempting to show the realignment of this Subject to God's Purpose (essentially, the meaning of the word Muslim*), what is actually moving is the Space-Time. Can you tell from this example which way the Plane is Moving (Folded)?

In addition to a novel approach to physics, let's see what this perspective does from the vantage point of the Theatre of War (I'll bet those video games will start looking pretty good about now).

إِذْ يُغَشِّيكُمُ النُّعَاسَ أَمَنَةً مِّنْهُ وَيُنَزِّلُ عَلَيْكُم مِّن السَّمَاء مَاء
لِّيُطَهِّرَكُم بِهِ وَيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمْ رِجْزَ الشَّيْطَانِ وَلِيَرْبِطَ عَلَى قُلُوبِكُمْ
وَيُثَبِّتَ بِهِ الأَقْدَامَ 8:11

8:11 That Deceptive Somnolence (cheating sleepiness/that blurs makes things vague), a Reassurance (Safety) from Us and the coming down of water (rain, m.a) from the Sky to Cleanse you and Rid you of the Wrath (vengeance) of Satan and Linked your Hearts (braced you, to each other) and Fixed your footing (your sure-footedness; a firmer footing implies stronger gravitational forces so what effect did this passel of warriors (collection of nearby point sources) have on local Gravity?)

فَلَمْ تَقْتُلُوهُمْ وَلَـكِنَّ اللّهَ قَتَلَهُمْ وَمَا رَمَيْتَ إِذْ رَمَيْتَ وَلَـكِنَّ
اللّهَ رَمَى وَلِيُبْلِيَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْهُ بَلاء حَسَناً
إِنَّ اللّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ 8:17

8:17 So, you did not kill them but God Killed them; and you did not throw what/if you threw but God Threw/Cast; and ‘informed the Believers among them’/’labled the Believers among them’/’wore them out by the Believers’/in a good ordeal (first-class scourge—He Whooped their butts); Indeed, God is All Hearing, All Knowing (Aware)

وَاتَّقُواْ فِتْنَةً لاَّ تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مِنكُمْ خَآصَّةً
8:25 وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ
8:25 And fear (have a care) Sedition not infect those who are wrong/ed among you particularly and know that God is Severe in Punishment

إِذْ أَنتُم بِالْعُدْوَةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُم بِالْعُدْوَةِ الْقُصْوَى وَالرَّكْبُ أَسْفَلَ مِنكُمْ
وَلَوْ تَوَاعَدتَّمْ لاَخْتَلَفْتُمْ فِي الْمِيعَادِ وَلَـكِن لِّيَقْضِيَ اللّهُ أَمْراً كَانَ مَفْعُولاً
لِّيَهْلِكَ مَنْ هَلَكَ عَن بَيِّنَةٍ وَيَحْيَى مَنْ حَيَّ عَن بَيِّنَةٍ وَإِنَّ اللّهَ لَسَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ 8:42

8:42 That you in count/numbers (to the enemies/opposing force) the minimum (least, fewest) and they in count/numbers (to the enemies/opposing force) the maximal (superior, ) and the base installation (riders at the back/below) of you had just avoided not disputing/differing in/by the date (promised, appointment) and but for God's Judgment His Will was Done that they mistook (weakened) from your appearing greater in number from what is Evident and hailing from the neigborhood/district/vicinity Proof/Evidence/Testimony that Indeed God is All-Hearing, Omniscient.

{Aside: (whisper) If You have been following this blog since its inception You know that somehow I have managed to avoid Chapter 8 for the better part of 3 years, and for good reason. Knowing how You feel about my 'unique' interpretation of the Science in the Quran, I know You might be none too pleased with my take on History, especially if it has anything to do with Battles. The Battle alluded to here is a famous one, but I have a memory like a sieve when it comes to such things, so I hope my contemporary retrospective on it does not incentivize You to do something I will regret (again) or make me any fatter.}

The section appearing in Red Font in Sign 8:42, hailing from the neigborhood/district/vicinity Proof/Evidence/Testimony, is the interpretation of what took place at the 'lowest level'--under the Fold. Basically, the 'Forces on the Right' were outnumbered by the larger 'Forces on the Wrong' that struck fear in our heroes due to their superiority (not only in number, but it would appear they also had the higher ground and the better equipment/horses) and first saw the defending contingent as few in number, but at the last chance the 'guys from 'the 'hood'' contingent shows up (apparently they were quibbling about the date/time of when exactly the Battle was to take place--and they did not have what I am holding--an iPhone), but fortuitously they all resolved the dispute in time to make a good impression--good enough to weaken the other side by the mere appearance of their overwhelming numbers. Since, based on this narrative, the supporting forces from the vicinity did manage to converge on the battle field in what appeared to the opposing side in surprisingly large enough numbers (described as making the enemy perish/go missing/weaken or tire by the 'hulk', or what 'appeared to be a large looming object') as to make them lose any hope of being able to win the day.

(I added enough back links to "Micelles, Gravicells.." but the moral of this story has to do with the human body and Gravity interactions---and by extension any body and gravity, including such as may be found in the 'nethermost' regions which implies sub-atomic; attention is drawn to the location and timing of the lesser forces (at the bottom levels) vs the more evident superior forces (at the top), and then local or neighboring/vicinity effects of the emergent forces at the point they converge and seem to be much larger than is first apparent due to higher dimensional objects being 'folded' onto the common plane (ground); which seems to be related to tay-al-ard or space-time folding (higher dimensions must be involved for any of this to make sense, check out the lusona lesson below to see how this would apply).

The reason for thinking that Our Subjects were at what seems to be a 'disadvantage'--that being on the lower ground-- is the description of their having been 'al-rakib al-asfal' which means 'mounted on the bottom' as compared to the superior/maximal force which was also 'uppermost' or on higher ground. But, how, one might wonder did they suddenly appear to be such a vexing number if in fact those with the better view could clearly see them and surmise their evident or apparent number?

I wasn't there, but based on the History as rendered in Sign 8:42 by the carefully selected words and the proviso (it's postulated) that the Quran was intended to make sense or be useful 'fi qul zamaan wa makaan' (for all time and every place), I suspect something else was happening 'below the Fold'.

The word 'al-rakib' also means 'constructed', 'composed', 'superimposed', and 'framed' while 'al-asfal' along with meaning 'foot' or 'bottom' also means 'nethermost' or 'undermost', adjectives which imply 'layers' or 'tiers'. (If you haven't been following carefully, then take a few minutes to consider the mathematics and geometry of tilings or tesselations and symmetry , groups, and groups as sets--do that while I now go freshen up at the gym--because "God Loves Beauty" and I like to please God).
...to be continued
--Ok. I'm back!

Say what you want about Arabs but the simple fact of the matter is that they always know (at least back then) exactly where they are and what time it is---or they would be dead in the desert pretty darn quick (without GPS).

So how is it that these guys on this day of Battle were remiss about the time? They steered by the Sun during the day and the Stars/Planets at night for the simple reason that they had to in order to survive the aeolian landscape which they inhabited. Sands shifted and did not form reliable landmarks, and this begs the question: where were their heads at that they were confused about the appointed time to engage the enemy? {If you've visited the links above about math and tesselations, then a quick review about Escher's work Relativity and the subject of having 'companions' as a matter of explaining the nature of what we call Reality and the Multiverse might help fix the following concepts in your mind}.

Recall that Sign 8:11 mentions that these warriors were of "two states" of mind, the one being somnolent (described as deceptive or a cheat) and the other being 'braced' or 'connected/linked to each other' and sure-footed (gravitational increase due to linking) after having a rain come down. The 'sleepy' state is also described as being a Reassuring or Safety mechanism from God; but once the Rain comes down (recall the word 'ma' means water and it comes down from the Sky when it Rains) the warriors' 'sleepiness' is washed away and they feel consciously connected to each other which reinforces their resolve/sure-footedness (a relationship that is in 'sleep' mode (perhaps a ground or sub-ground state) becomes activated when the bodies become linked/connected to each other and augments the effect of gravity; Warning: the somnolent or sleepy state is a Safety mechanism, so proceed with Caution before waking or linking/superimposing anything up ) . It is no small coincidence that Sign 8:11 incorporates m.a and relates battle (competing/non-compatible) having to do with--of all things--Forces (does anyone now know why F=ma?)

Okay. I will spin my wheels here a little bit longer, because someone else has to know the answer since this isn't all about m.e (never was, never will be...). So, I will digress and mention that now you will be introduced to one possibile explanation to the age-old question: Where do Angels come from? (The short answer is from the top of the nautilus spiral).

Lusona are line drawings made by the Lunda-Tchokwe group of the Bantu, an example of which appears in the illustration on the right. Sona making integrates mathematics, art, and culture and traditionally were passed from one generation to the next during a 6 to 8 month period of male initiation rites. It is used here to help further demonstrate the concept behind our paratrooper's realignment in the above drawing and shed some light on an alternative explanation as to where those ('extra-dimensional') forces came from that are mentioned in Sign 8:42.

The lusona used in the example has translational, and rotational symmetry and provides a simple case for the purposes of illustration. More challenging examples can be tested using examples without rotational symmetry or more complicated group geometries like you would find in arabicized tilings or tesselations; in which case one would have to resort to more complex mathematics (probably need a good grasp of rotational matrices) rather than simple inspection. (Find more at Paulus Gerdes Ethnomath, Mirror Symmetries)

The first sequence of drawings breaks down the geometry of one lusona, noting that the proportion between the base diamond and those on the perimeter is 1/3. The 'key' objects are also proportional to the diamonds.

This next sequence illustrates that through translation and rotation symmetries the 'key' elements are assembled/connected to the diamond base (for lack of a better term, let's call it 'The Field"). And it is interesting to note for the purposes of this explanation that the 'key' elements are not directly connected to each other, so in a manner of speaking, they are not 'aware' of each other (another way of saying inattentive or 'sleepy'); and in this manner the original lusona is realized as shown at the upper right corner of the drawing on the left.

But Reality is seldom 2-dimensional and in order to visualize what is happening when space-time folds on itself as it would in cases of tay-al-ard or higher dimensional beings (like Angels) 'coming down' for a visit, the lusona is extended into 3-dimensions by the indicated spiral. An image of a nautilus is shown to help with the visualization that something is sprialing up out of the page or down into the page.

There have been previous discussions about the Golden Ratio (1.618) and it is often suggested that it is the expected ratio at which the nautilus shell expands, however, it has been reported that mathematician Clement Falbo measured a series of nautilus shells at San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences, and he found that while they were indeed logarithmic spirals (like the golden spiral), their ratios ranged from about 1.24 to 1.43, with an average ratio of about 1.33 to 1. And that 1/3 expansion is in keeping with the ratio of our lusona here.

And in keeping with sound mathematical practices, the lusona is 'superimposed' onto the image of the nautilus with the logarithmic spiral curve in blue and it coincides at 6 points. Depending on variations and accuracy it is expected that it may coincide at 7 points. The case for 8 points coinciding is not as readily deduced from this investigation. It is of further interest to note how the 'keys' just happen to frame the chambered region of the nautilus.

[You, with the super computer, can see what happens in analogous situations for even higher dimensions, say up to 7---oh, why stop there, try up to 11---and let's address the validity of 'string theory' once and for all---the mathematics have to include all of the operations appearing in green and summarized in Sign 8:9; this is not a homework assignment, it's strictly voluntary and while cases with symmetry are more manageable, it would be an interesting excercise to see what happens when dealing with deformations or non-symmetries]

*وَجَاهِدُوا فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ مِّلَّةَ

22:78 And Strive in God's True Struggle; He elected you and did not make any difficulty for you in Religion (the Dean/Righteous Way); your forefather Abraham, he is who called you Muslims from the onset (before), and in this the Apostle Bears Witness over you and you are the witnesses over Humanity; so ordain the prayers and give in Charity and Heed/Follow God; He is you Protector/Guardian; the Finest Protector, the Finest Vanquisher.

Pearls Before Swine is a cartoon strip that appears regulary in the Los Angeles Times newspaper; the buttocks reference came up on 2 consecutive days March 30 and 31, 2010--a little overkill don't You think? I got it the first time but didn't think to post it here.


Micelles, 'Gravicells', And Passels

There is a fundamental problem with non-native speakers translating a text (I am just as guilty as all the rest I am sure) and that is their need to rely on anecdotal or historic evidence to decode parts that pose difficulties. ***

Take for example the word 'tbt' in Sign 111:1 which is by all published accounts rendered as Perish! or Damn! when the word for such is 'taab'. I suppose part of the conflict is having to admit that no one really knows at the time what is meant by it so they have to think of something or there will be a gaping hole of not having it make any sense otherwise; which only makes things all the more difficult to understand.

I suffer from no such delusion of feeling the need for things to make sense and that's why I go with what is Written whether I understand it or not (I am also very comfortable with not worrying about what others might discover about the large body of missing knowledge I have amassed over the years, either).

So I will keep TBT as it stands and TB as is, since there are no readily meaningful terms in the Google tools Arab-English translator. In my mind I think TBT is tributyltin and TB is tuberculosis.

TBT is an environmental toxin, that while is regulated is still found in the ocean and marine life, soil and groundwater, and has been identified as a possible link to obesity in the human population.

The leading Sign 111:1 may be alluding to a crystal growth (as when forming micelles for drug delivery methods; or surfactants) or some other substitution nomenclature I am not particularly aware of these days.

So, I am just going to throw this out there to see what you think. (with transliteration)

111 Surah Lahab (Blaze/Inferno, a moniker for the Prophet's unkind uncle)

111:1 very low voltage/very low temperature controls the source of the glow while true bearing (magnetically aligned true north/ measured in relation to geographic points on the Earth's surface, rather than to points of magnetic attraction/or not relative as a value and corrected for all error factors)

مَا أَغْنَى عَنْهُ مَالُهُ وَمَا كَسَبَ 111:2ma a'ghna 'aanhu malahu wa ma ksab

s.yassli naran ththata lhabin

the letter s+word (will...)

yasli v. reach

ththat n. self, person, object; adj. one, related to , associated with;

lhab=n. flame; v. inflame, inspire/arouse/produce/move, blaze, reanimate, thrill (alternatively, the color: reddish-orange)

111:3 until reaching a fire/heat/light related to
/associated with a flame/reddish orange color

111:3 will reach a glow/luminosity object arousing/producing (possibly
reddish-orange color)

وَامْرَأَتُهُ حَمَّالَةَ الْحَطَبِ 111:4
wa amratahu hhamalat alhhattab

wa= conj. and, while; prep. with

amra'tu= his woman, his wife; (ie female coupler/recessive counterpart)

hhamalet= n. porter, roustabout; v. carries, is carrying

alhhatb=n. firewood, firing, wood/covert=hidden/secret/stealthy; v. chop, hew, log

111:4 and/while his female coupler/counterpart carries/porters the firewood(ie., fuel/energy source)

111:4 while the female coupler (engineering; recessive part designed to receive projecting part) carries the covert/hidden/secret/stealthy

فِي جِيدِهَا حَبْلٌ مِّن مَّسَدٍ 111:5
fi jaiydiha hhblan min mmased

fi= adv. thereof; prep. in, among, at, on, during, within,by

jayidiha= her+ n. neck (ie, narrow part), prime; adj. good, perfect, pretty, kindly; adv. well, fully

111:5 in/within/by her neck (narrow part) a cord/tether/bond of (whatsoever)mures==encloses or walls (him/TB) in ...
ie.thereby isolating TB

111:5 within her narrow part/good/perfect coil of/from that which seals/plugs/is obdurate/rigid/intransigent (probably a very low temp/very low voltage directional coupler or similar device)

I would have just stopped at this point, thinking I probably got my point across, were it not for my primal fascination with GPS and what a great tool it is for doing the really phun stuph like tay-al-ard (folding space-time, as it is now called).
111:1 Turn-by-Turn (timeless/immortal) clockwise/writing/index/line/factor the source of movement/eternal reanimation while True Bearing

111:2 What an Advantage owing to His speed/tempo/pace/time/velocity/charge While Gaining

111:3 He Will Reach, Light/ Heat One/ Self-Related to Reanimation/Moving

111:4 And His (wife)/Recessive Counterpart Carries a Hidden/Secret (occult?)

111:5 In Her Prime Significance of that Bar==SI unit of Pressure cm/g/sec N/cm2/Tablet (Source of Inscription, small computer)/Seal

This last rendering is most directly associated with GPS (although the mention of reanimation may be a nod to Resurrection) which utilizes/rate/distance (rel. to speed+time...)/North Reference (often can choose between‘Auto’ /True North/Magnetic North/Grid North/User North) other factors such as distance, speed, elevation/magnetic declination; lines of longitude/latitude (meridians/parallels); Latitude/longitude ruler is usually divided into degrees/minutes/seconds.
Bearing is measured clockwise from True North or Magnetic North;

Hidden table or tablet could be referring to the Ephemeris/ a table of predicted satellite orbital locations.

At this point, I realize I am preaching to the choir, since You (Dear) must have had all this figured out over 4 years ago (by my reckoning, and having arrived at this conclusion at my own glacial pace).
But did You happen to catch 'Gravicells,' the Art Installation by Seiko Mikami? Apparently it's been on exhibit in one venue or another around the world since 2004. It looks to be a great large scale interactive experience where the human body (that of the observer) is used as the resistive force (counter) to Gravity (which the Artist calls 'the 6th Consciousness').
I chanced on the Gravicells website while searching similarities between geological rock folds and space folds, which got me thinking what effect the human body has on folding space-time or vice versa.
The rest of this discourse relating gravity and passels ( large number or amount or extent) will appear 'above the fold.'

***Author's Note: ...since now I know You read them. I don't have to be 100% right since We are just describing a Method here; We leave it to your fancy English speaking Russian computers to get it all Right.
