Phunny Physics Take II

While Newton's laws are adequate to describe the motion of an idealized object's motion in an inertial frame they proved inadequate to characterize the motion of rigid bodies and deformable bodies, necessitating the development of more generalized laws of motion for rigid bodies by Euler based on Newton's groundwork.

If a body is represented as a continuum of discrete particles, each governed by Newton’s laws of motion, then Euler’s laws can be derived from Newton’s initial concepts.

Likewise, while Newtonian mechanics is a useful approximation for objects moving at speeds much slower than the speed light, for moving frames of reference and objects moving at faster speeds, it has been superseded by Einstien's Special Relativity; and for objects on the atomic scale Einstien's General Relativity and quantum mechanics provide the better heuristics.

This is not to say that Newton's ideas which first appeared in his Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica in 1687 (along with the Calculus) were wrong, as they served to successfully describe and predict planetary motions and the orbits of thier satellites, and provided the basis for the more accurate and comprehensive theories that were predicated on his initial concepts, but that they were nascent.

Newtonian mechanics served as the precursor to the more highly developed ideas fostered just by his having proposed them in the first place.

With this in mind and mayhaps a little tongue-in-cheek, this blog entry serves as a convenient cross-reference between more familiar verbage and concepts we come across in our common experience and what A Page In The Life tries to tease out from the Quran as Knowledge Object.

"`You know,' said Arthur, `it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die from asphyxiation in deepspace that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young.'
`Why, what did she tell you?'
`I don't know, I didn't listen.'"

"`If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.'"

"`Hey this is terrific!' Zaphod said. `Someone down there is trying to kill us!'
`Terrific,' said Arthur.
`But don't you see what this means?'
`Yes. We are going to die.'
`Yes, but apart from that.'
`APART from that?'
`It means we must be on to something!'
`How soon can we get off it?'"

The Lion Ring

...it's a matter of Pride.

Lion Ring Seal With Imprint

Note: perspective is off, since She is no Artist

The Lion is a Symbol of both the Tribes Judah and Dan. Legend has it that King Solomon wore a Signet Ring that conferred magic powers to Him s.t.n. He may control the Wind, Demons and Jinn and understand the language of the animal kingdom. As King He used such a ring to Set His Seal on official documents and coduct other courtly business.

In General, a seal-making device is also referred to as the seal matrix or die; the imprint it creates is the seal impression (or, more rarely, the sealing). If the impression is made purely as a relief resulting from the greater pressure where the high parts of the matrix touch, the seal is known as a dry seal. (wikipedia)

Today, setting a seal or  'sealing' has to do with protecting from public view court documents in order to guard State Secrets or in Witness Protection programs.

No One other than King Solomon has ever seen His Ring and if they had, they would not have 'lived' to tell about it (get it, they 'die' first). Some guess that it had 4 jewels, some think it was embossed with the Star of David and inscribed with the Ineffable Name(s) of God.

Some bear the Seal (stigmata as a white scar from a heat impression) since it is never appropriate to welcome such High Heads of State (Emissaries) with the Universal One Finger Salute.

Lately I've been 'hearing' "Beautiful! Beautiful!"   -- something that my friend Paul (the 'glazier') is known to say, where most people suffice to say, "Wow!", or "Oh, My God!" or simply,  "O, Gee!"

Since that can't be a comment on Her Artistic Endeavors (that's Michael's Forte), if She is sooo beautiful and You took the Time (Out) to imprint Her with Your Stamp of Approval, why is it that You Know her name(s), address(es) and phone number(s), and yet She doesn't know the first thing about You? (Aside: I know, it's because she is a blabber mouth and is likely to post your Identity on this ProScribed blog of hers that NoBody reads, once she runs your license plates for the world wide web users to see--I really wouldn't).

Unless, it isn't a stamp of approval at all and more of a 'damned Yankee' tag--which is just as likely given what She registers as Your disappointment every time You spot Her and She 'hears' You 'say,' "...and here She is--again!"

(Another Aside: Her poor Spelling and Your obscure Stamping is a sure recipe for disaster, it's a good thing the Gramma(r) is holding up).

Addendum 06_19_2012: Okay, Mr. 'It's you!'-- What exactly are You accusing me of other than failure to pull a comb through my hair and a predilection toward weird science? 

O, and don't keep summoning me and then act like you don't know why it's me that keeps showing up!

"Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness." --Blaise Pascal

Since the Space Ship Building Mission is temporarily suspended until otherwise informed, and yet still feeling the pull-- out of force of habit-- to visit and update this blog, I have gone through and peppered it with relevant quotes having to do with Madness and Insanity.

Note: 'Peppering' implies having excercised some level of restraint since I could just as easily have Salted it; but given the News that Your WIFE Is A Lunatic-- not that I suffer from lunacy but have come to enjoy it very much--I thought YOU would appreciate the nexus.

BTW...Insanity in English means Madness and sounds just like the Arabic word for "My Humanity",  إنسانيتي  and if One happens to be afflicted with a lithp it may just as well be given as "inthanity" which means "My Woman"  or "Bend/Fold" or just as likely to be mistaken for,  if not listening carefully,  انفنتي  "Infinity".


Alright, All In

...and just as She suspected, He is All American! (ALL BETS ARE OFF IF HE INSISTS ON LOOKING LIKE MY EX-MOTHER-IN-LAW!)

Because the minute He finally does something that sets Her off, He says, "I'm Sorry--about that."

That being she discovers Her erstwhile 'Husband' is a Cross-Dresser!

Since the Revelation takes place in a public venue, She sucks it up (along with half a pack of cigarettes (American Spirits, organic, no added preservatives, pesticides, or accelerants--so they must be good for you) and says, "It's Okay."

And tries Her best to look on the bright side, after all, Her wardrobe had instantly doubled (if the 70's street fashion should ever take hold again in Her so-called-Lifetime), and She settles quickly on the idea that He's raiding Her panty drawer and doesn't mind it at all because He is so Clean He Squeaks.

And the cigarettes help interim with any oral fixation issues She may have that He is too busy exploring His femme side to satisfy.

{Entered 06_11_2011 I get it, 'It's just a phase He's going through'--It took a whole month to figure that one out and it's so funny--but I finally got it in a public venue so I can't crack up, or double over, or whatever the appropriate response is expected to be...}

And He finds some solace in Knowing that She takes the News so well, because She is not likely to let 'Beautiful' and 'Sexy' go to Her head since She doesn't trade in that , and where She comes from that and $2.50 gets Her a ride on the NYC MTA.

Level headed to the bitter end She was never One to confuse Love with Pain or Brave with Stupid, either.

What else Ya got? (I Heard You Say 'Not another word,' but since this is off-topic, I felt it would be permissible)

{Added Monday May 14, 2012...The Identity Crisis continues, but She has come across this type of behavior before---it all falls under the umbrella of MisUnderstanding--like when He Miss Takes for a Smile Her pained grimace (Her Old Age Talking) and what He calls that deep thoughtful introspective look on Her face for--- je ne c'est quoi--gravitas?, is simply Her trying to remember where She parked the car.}
