The World Turns? Screw That!

Perhaps this post is more appropriately titled , 'An (Hyperb-) Ode to Alan'

"Curvature is the Obstruction to a Flat Field.
Tidal Forces are the Obstruction to an Acceleration Field
Curvature of Space-Time is the same as Tidal Forces."

Surah 86 At-Tariq (الطَّارِقِ)
وَالسَّمَاء وَالطَّارِقِ 86:1وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الطَّارِقُ 86:2النَّجْمُ الثَّاقِبُ 86:3إِن كُلُّ نَفْسٍ لَّمَّا عَلَيْهَا حَافِظٌ 86:4فَلْيَنظُرِ الْإِنسَانُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ 86:5خُلِقَ مِن مَّاء دَافِقٍ 86:6يَخْرُجُ مِن بَيْنِ الصُّلْبِ وَالتَّرَائِبِ 86:7إِنَّهُ عَلَى رَجْعِهِ لَقَادِرٌ 86:8يَوْمَ تُبْلَى السَّرَائِرُ 86:9فَمَا لَهُ مِن قُوَّةٍ وَلَا نَاصِرٍ86:10وَالسَّمَاء ذَاتِ الرَّجْعِ 86:11وَالْأَرْضِ ذَاتِ الصَّدْعِ 86:12إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلٌ فَصْلٌ 86:13وَمَا هُوَ بِالْهَزْلِ 86:14إِنَّهُمْ يَكِيدُونَ كَيْدًا 86:15وَأَكِيدُ كَيْدًا 86:16فَمَهِّلِ الْكَافِرِينَ أَمْهِلْهُمْ رُوَيْدًا 86:17
{Some of 'em want to know what's driving me to do this. Simple vanity! I decided the only way to shed a few pounds around here is to get rid of Gravity.}

The diacritic marks were added to the Quran some time after it was first put down in writing, to ensure the proper pronunciation of the text to avoid any misunderstandings. However, it would appear some people go to great lengths to make sure the meaning is lost on them. So, enough about them.

For the classic Star Trek aficionado who may remember Spock and McCoy facing off in a game of multi-level chess, the Multiple nuances of the Quran are more to do with performing multiple math problems than to dig deep to find a way to screw your neighbor.

For a limited example, take the first line of Chapter 86 At-Tariq. 'The Tariq' has been variously rendered as 'the night visitor', 'the piercing star', 'Sirius', just to mention a few variations on the theme. Tabulated below, in a nod to Multi-level Chess and Math Word Problems, the first line 86:1 consisting of 14 letters is broken down to its basic elements of variables, constants and other arithmetic operators.

If the table on the left, parsing out Sign 86:1 of the Quran, does not make it immediately obvious that one of the relationships embedded in it describes a helical path or orbit, then perhaps some clarification is called for.

I am presuming no one else has stumbled on it since I have never heard anything about this particular information embedded in the Quran, or what turned out to be my very handy-dandy-field-survival-guide, in all the years I've been on this (sad forsaken) planet and considering that this information has been hiding in plain view for over 14 Centuries by our reckoning.

In fact, the majority of those I've encountered over the years only see the worse things in it (which I have always justified as a general lack of literacy in the population) and most of them can only sit around thinking of ways to desecrate it or disparage the One (pbuh) who saw fit to share it with us.

The few more widely read, or the handful following along at apageinthelife, may scoff at the discovery, because there is more vivid imagery and reference to this phenomenon than the example I selected. Not only in the Quran itself, as in Chapter 81 Takwiir (Lit. "Spiralling'/'Twisting,' moving off-center), but in other Ancient lore including the Maya's of South America and the Maori's of New Zealand.

The Maya, of course, are best noted for their 2012 so-called 'doomsday' calendar, and there is a Maori oral tradition that alludes to 'When the Snake Bites the Sun.'

The Snake or Dragon reference appears in one form or another in most world cultures, and while it essentially is a reference to new beginnings from old endings (depicted by the serpent usually eating its own tale), such myths are imparted in simplistic memorable terms akin to presenting someone with a colorful Easter Egg--something that can be easily recalled, so that when we get older and have learned enough or experienced enough, and there comes a time to do away with childish things, we can then truly understand the Reality that 'hatches' from all the fairy tales.

I am probably not as brilliant as the young man looking over my shoulder at our neighborhood Starbucks the other evening, so I can't do multi-level math; and given that I can't even do 10th grade math thanks in great part to those who for whatever reason saw to it I lose the only thing I had going for me (my mind) coupled with the lack of proper care and out-right cover-up from the so-called 'medical community', I have to resort to single-level easy-as-she-goes-so-as-not-to-blow-out-her-one-remaining-brain-cell approach. Since I was never all that great at Set Theory or Statistics, I will go with the Algebra (you can follow along and pick your forte).

The first step, as when working any Code, is to find a Key, or agree on a Convention. Since the 'bismillah' is among the most often repeated phrases on Earth, maybe it is a Key to untangling the Arithmetic embedded in the Quran?

Like with everything else, one must Consider the Source before committing anything to a Methodology. While for convenience I use for an on-line Quran source, I know that the Allah is generally more detailed than what is shown in Sign 1:1 above, so I used wikipedia to get a more faithful representation of the Name 'Allah'.
As shown, Allah comprises an 'alif wasl' which is actually not an 'A' at all but what is called a 'hamza' and since this one appears at the beginning of the word with no prior letter it is pronounced as "Ah" and is called a 'hamza wasl'. Literally, 'hamza wasl' means 'connecting link'.
This is followed by the first L (the Arabic Lam) which in Arabic math notation is used for !factorial but is also the notation for complex numbers of the form r*e^(it). And it connects to the medial L in the Word Allah.
The Medial L (connects two letters, the leading Lam and the Ha (Arabic H that follows). What is noteworthy about this second lam is that it has both the 'shadeh' and the 'dagger aleph' harakat or diacritical marks above it. So, while the first Lam is understood to be connected with the hamza, making the word 'al' as in the definitive article 'the', there is no ignoring what we are to think of this medial Lam.
The 'aliph dagger' خنجر is used to mark or highlight the letter it is over, much like a sign (†) that is used as a reference mark, especially to a footnote (oh, A Clue!). And then we have the 'shadeh' as mentioned throughout the table above meaning, to 'stress' 'double' or 'take root' as well as things having to do with germination and the 'kernel'. And it is worth mentioning that the word 'Aliph' itself means 'compile'.
That the medial Lam is followed by the Ha (ه ), and there is no mistaking that in Arabithmatic ه stands for Euler's number, E, (or, e as in ln(e)=1---like e=2.7182...that E!) may be pointing to Lam as shorthand for complex numbers rather than Permutation, but that's just a guess on my part. (Plenty of room here for puns about 'Mary had a little lamb' and 'Abraham sacrificing a Lamb' or Ram...blah, blah, but let's try to focus).
Euler's number appears often in math and the sciences, and is associated with a range of things from expressing growth (or decay) rates, to Gaussian fields, to simplifying Calculus (like when integrating the Taylor equations).
So, we look for the Truth of the Thing by stringing along the letters. Lam complex form taken once and transcribed to equivalent English is re^(it).

There are two ways to double this; either one should work, so I tried both 2re^(it) and (re^(it))^2. And according to Anyone Who Has Ever Told The Truth of The Matter, There is Only 1 Allah. So, to test the Key, We Trust That ALLAH=1. And thank Heaven for, I was able to generate the table for each case.
The fact that each case based on this Method did not yield a 'False' statement, and that each case had roots and yielded recognizable functions, does seem to confirm that 'Allah-hu-Ahhad' ('God Is One'). (I have to insist it ain't me or any one of you, but I think We may have Met on my worse day on that 'flippin' planet'!). It is interesting to note that each curve varies in the same way given that they all have the same derivatives.

Euler's number also appears when expressing curves in polar coordinates (r,t) and is analogous to expressing a complex number.

A logarithmic, or growth spiral which often appears in nature (spiral galaxies, a hawk' s path toward its prey, the nautilus shell, or a moth' s approach to a flame) when expressed in polar coordinates (r,t) is given by:

where a & b are Real numbers

Parametrically, the curve is given by:


A 3-D spiral, or Helix, is formed when a planar spiral is pulled along a third axis, z;

z=t; 0≤t ≤2π

The Helix is not the only type of spiral found in nature, others include the 'Whorl' and the 'Vortex.' All this means is that the World 'Screwing Around' is nothing new, since not only does the Earth Orbit the Sun along the Ecliptic Plane, but it is following the Sun as it hurtles through space on its way to toward the Solar Apex-what is, essentially, a Helical orbit.

The image below is taken from the book Helical Helix : Solar System a Dynamic Process byDr. Pallathadka Keshava Bhat (comments added).

As of 2010 the concept that the entire Solar System moves in a vortex trajectory like a snake moving in 3 dimensions (the 'Solar Snake') instead of a flat plane is not the way it is being taught in our schools. (In fact, in some schools they are still arguing Creationism v Evolution, as if this is even an argument).
As the "Solar Snake" moves either above or below the Galactic Ecliptic (about 26,000 years), it produces the illusion of the 'precession of the equinoxes' or what is described as a wobble in the Earth's polar axis. (At least this is how it appears from the 'Accessible' perspective of Earth's inhabitants, or 'Lower Dimension', than when viewed from outside the Solar System, or the 'Remote' viewpoint from a 'Higher Dimension').
The 'Solar Snake' is creating the so-called wobble due to it's vortical trajectory above and below the Galactic Ecliptic. The Ancients, including but not limited to the Maya, Inca, Egyptians, Indians, Indonesians and Native Americans, knew this and represented the Solar Force as Serpents or twin opposing serpents (twin opposing vortices).

The precession of Earth's axis explanation by way of this 'higher dimensional' viewpoint has interesting ramifications when extending this 'as above, so below' observation to the way information propagates throughout the Creation.
One example is in the similarity between the shape traced by solar system's helical path on the Galactic level compared to sperm on the microscopic level and genetic material (DNA) itself at the atomic level. (I know, this all gives new meaning to the notion of 'panspermia').

And while the examples of the snapshot of the helical solar system, the movement of sperm flagellum and the structure of the DNA molecule are physical 'turns' like that of a screw, this type of displacement is strongly reminiscent of elelctro-magnetic wave propagation.
This 'Reverberating Pattern' transmitted across not only in magnitude (from the Galactic to the Microscopic) but also across forms of Matter and Energy (Movement) cannot be ignored; it is very much like the self-similarity seen in Fractals! The very fact that this self-similarity exists so widely in the Universe must have meaning of 'Grave' (-ity) importance! (Did I scare you?--to know You're Mom died?---You'll be okay, because it's still not as bad as your driving scares me! So, remember to drive safely...(well-timed, aptly-titled JumpStart comics appeared 01.03.2011 in the LATimes; is the 'grammar nazi' comment a personal attack?
The Helix also presents as a screw dislocation as it propagates in crystal growth. Screw dislocations are an important mechanism in crystal growth and appear as distinct spirals under high magnification. Turns out, where there is a surface “step” the atoms can more easily add to the crystal, and the surface step associated with the screw dislocation is never destroyed no matter how many atoms are added to it. (The arithmetic description of a ‘step’ is a ‘jump point’ or a ‘discontinuity’ caused by a function being ‘undefined’ at that point, like ‘divide by 0’)
Keeping all this in mind, about how matter holistically travels or imprints these helical paths, an electromagnetic vortex may have something more to add to our understanding of the phenomenon and, in turn, add to our understanding of the Gravity 'paradox' when formulating the Theory of Everything.
An optical vortex is created when light (a form of electromagnetic radiation) travels in the z direction with a phase front in the shape of a spiral. The intensity vanishes at the center (anyone think this is familiar to Gravity at the Center of the Earth where counter forces cancel each other out?) of the optical vortex where the phase is “undefined”.

The image of just such an optical vortex is
taken from a paper by Dr. Ulrich T Schwarz Research Group, Regensburg University. According to that paper;
“…’the threads of darkness’ are the optical analogue to screw dislocations in condensed matter physics. They are defined as topological entities and thus stable. A perturbation of the beam will shift the position of the vortex, but not destroy it (as it is impossible to smoothly merge a spiral staircase).”{…And I suppose this is where I am not to let my anger show and only wonder, ‘Why can’t God Imagine better people?!’} Ok, Enough with the EMO stuff.

Moving right along, we take a second look at where we started:
وَالسَّمَاء وَالطَّارِقِ 86:1
86:1 By the Sky (Heavens) and the Tar(i)q(i)
Which is not to say we are right back where we started because all this has happened in the meantime, so it's not exactly the exact same beginning although it looks strangely familiar (Déjà vu, anyone?--Oh, the French, we'll get to them later...).
The reason the word Tariq has so many associations is probably because when it was first introduced into the Arabic vernacular people thought it quite foreign and they tried to make sense of it through context of what followed, which seems to be about the Sky and the Stars. But the words for Stars and Revelation are homonyms, so 86:3 may be just as likely talking about a Piercing Star as it is a Groundbreaking Revelation. Which brings us to the French.
French is a Romance language and derives from the ancient Latin. It is also known as one of the group of "oïl languages" which share the common word oïl (oui) for yes.
{This is where I have to digress and relate a story about a traveller who shared a (conventional) flight with me and was seated next to me on a business trip some time in the long distant past. As we were flying over New Mexico he became quite chatty about how beautiful it looked from the air and he said that travelling widely for his work had taught him to appreciate all kinds of beauty that is not so apparent to the rest of us just walking around because of the special vantage he had when hearing people speak. He was a Linguist and his work required that he find ways to preserve human language and discover how it evolved, which gave him a wider lexicon than the rest of us and an entirely different way of understanding the World.}
Consider the word الطَّارِقِ (at-tariq) first introduced in 86:1 and then followed by the rhetorical question:
86:2 "And How Would You Know (Who Taught You, or, How Can You Be Able to get the Concept of ) what is the Tariq?"
To someone like my travel buddy, sometime in the '80's, it was probably a no-brainer; but to the rest of us, (or me anyway), it's not incredibly obvious. The nearest Arabic word to it would be طرق "method(s)" similar words mean 'through' or 'way' and secondary meanings are 'knocking, beating, pounding, enter, etc.' It is interesting that an alternative word for 'methods' is الأساليب "al-asaleeb" which sounds a great deal like "the Crosses" ( الصليب the Cross, Crucifixion).
A great many of us know about the story of Jesus and the Resurrection and associate His time on 'the Cross' as a time of 'Persecution' or great 'Torture'. So, we would not be surprised to find that the Latin word torquere, ('to torment'), can remind some of us of the word 'Torque', ('to twist'). And we find even more associations to the Jesus story in similar Latin words like 'Torques", (meaning; 'a chain of,' 'collar,' 'yoke', 'garland', 'necklace', 'gorget', 'chain') and the closely associated 'Torquis' (meaning; 'twisted necklace').
All this is made more interesting when we find that the word 'tarch' or 'arch' is 'Ark' in French, and sounds like 'tark' in Estonian for 'wise, astute, sapient, intelligent...' Which brings us around full circle to the word in Farsi (Persian) for torque, where it's taken directly from the contemporary word and its modern-day meaning; 'torque' transcribed in the Arabic/Persian alphabet as 'تورک' (tork), which looks and sounds a lot like the definitive طَّارِقِ (allowing for variations due to trascription from one laguage to another).
The Answer to the rhetorical Question posed in 86:2 (although none is needed) is:
"Certainly Not Google language tools!"
Since a recent translation of 86:2 using Google Language Tools yielded the following interpretation:
"Everybody Knows What Tariq (86:2)" (is).
{I would be convinced otherwise if every government agency had not at one time or another visited this site, even by way of Malaysia and Siberia, ok? I know yousguys tamper with it, because I would not expect those visitors' default language to be English.}
Essentially, this is what it is:
86:3 An-najm al-thaqib86:3 The Piercing Star; A Penetrating/Acute/Sagacious Revelation (acute/keen/boring (like with a hand-drill/perforator Insight/Awakening)
86:4 Inna Kulla Nafsitin llamma 3aliha hhafizhu86:4 Indeed (Truly) Every Being (Soul) Has Overseeing it (Over It) A Saviour (Keeper, Guardian, Protector, Watcher)
86:5 Fayuntthiri al-insannu mimma khulliq86:5 So let (such that) the Human Being See (Understands) Of What (they) Are Created
86:6 Khuliqin min ma'in daffiqin86:6 Created From/Of Watery Effluent (stream, race, influx, afflux, outpouring, inflow/outflow, pouring, pumping, effluence...)
86:7 Yakhruju min bayina al-ssalbi wa al-ttara'ibi86:7 Coming out (emerging, exiting, surfacing) from/of between the 'al-ssalbi' (n.; steel, Crux, crucifixion, loin, ramrod, cross-cut, betterment. v.; crucify, harden, consolidate, stiffen, temper, call out, sear, castigate. adj.; solid, firm, rigid, tough, stiff, concrete, robust, metallic, adamant, unyielding, inflexible, unkind, stark, horny, stubborn, tenacious, resistant, solidity, cruel, corneous, persistent, callous, stabile, out-and-out) and 'al-'ttaraa'ibi' (Alterae (Altair); var. رأب ra'b, bridge, garage; al-tara ibi (ForeFathers' + White Flyers).

The Northern Cross, or Cygnus (The Swan)__Backbone of the Milky Way
On one level 86:6 and 86:7 may very well be a lesson in biology and procreation, but the text is troubling when we have to try and figure out what the exact body part the 'effluent' or 'flood, stream' is emerging from between given that the words 'al-ssalbi' and 'al-ttara'ibi' don't, as far as I can find, correspond to any widely accepted body parts as such. They have been variously interpreted to mean the ribs, loins, or rib cage and the pelvic arch, but this seems contrived.
So, for now, we have to look elsewhere in our Universe to make a more Immediate Connection.
The Galactic Plane (Equator) runs right through the Northern Cross (Cygus, The Swan) where the asterism Fixed by Deneb and Albiero forms the long ‘Staff’ of The Cross; and Delta Cygni, Sadr, and Gibeah form its outstretched 'arms' (cross-bars).
Sighting the Northern Cross is the same as looking directly into the Milky Way disk since it floats like a backbone of the Milky Way – the luminous River of Stars passing through the Northern Cross and stretching across the sky. On clear, dark Winter nights this “milky” swath of sky appears as a hazy band and is really an edgewise view of the Galactic Disk.
The "Summer Triangle" likewise fixes the orientation of the Milky Way Galaxy as it flows out through one of the 'legs' formed by Vega and Altair, with Deneb at its western Apex.
Each of these stars in the Northern Cross and the Summer Triangle are associated with avian Constellations: Deneb and Albiero and Delta Cygni mark the Tail, Beak, and Wing of The Swan, respectively; Gieneh, means 'wing' in Arabic and it represents a wing of Corvus, the Crow/Raven (Gamma Corvi), and the eastern outstretched 'wing' of Cygnus the Swan (Epsilon Cygni); Vega is the brightest star in Lyra associated with the mythic Eagle/Vulture that swoops between Heaven and Earth; and Altair is a main star in the Aquila and derives its name from al-nasr-al-ta'er, 'The Flying Eagle', of legend; and finally, Sadr at the center of the crossbar in the Northern Cross is from the 'Breast' of the Hen.
So, while anatomically we may yet have a few more things to learn about human physiology, it would seem what we know about the Cosmos provides a more fitting depiction of what Signs 86:6 and 86:7 are on about. Since it would seem to indicate that the flow of the Milky Way through these fixed points has something to do with Birth or Resurrection. A Birth that our Ancient Forefathers noticed on a Galactic Time Scale in its streaming through what is alluded to as a 'bridge' associated with these 'White Flyers'. It's not surprising that Deneb, Vega and Altair are all white Class A stars related to Birds.
A 'bridge' connects or links places and it also enables communication (a span across a physical barrier or Time) and the secondary meaning of the word رأب ra'b being 'garage' may lead to the inference that the destination is a place for rest and repair, whether it be for cars, stars, UFOs, or people.

PS Henry, I was kind o'hope'n you took off with the quantitative maths while I perigrinated the qualitative aspects. The Chapter:Verse may be the actual parameters for the steps. For example, Sign(1:1) would indicate use variables=1 and result=1 ; and test for True. The example given for الله above yields:

The following account may appear to be just another unsolved UFO story but to those following this blog's content closely we know it calls for practical application of phunny physics and mystical math.

Source: La Razon (newspaper); Joseph Trainor produced the following bulletin for UFO ROUNDUP

In August 1962, the newspaper La Razon of Buenos Aires ran an astounding story. An OVNI (Spanish acronym for UFO) had landed at the airfield in Camba Punat, in the province of Corrientes.

According to La Razon, airport manager Luis Harvey was warned by his radar operators that an unannounced airplane was about to land. Running out on the runway, Harvey saw "a luminous object" circling the runway at high speed. Suddenly, the object came down and hovered four feet off the asphalt. Harvey and a dozen other witnesses described it as "a completely spherical body that hovered, spinning on its axis, a few feet above the runway." All the while, the UFO
emitted blinding green, orange and blue lights."

As Harvey and his crew approached the UFO, it soared upward and "vanished at staggering speed."

This, however, was only a warm-up to the big event...

On December 20, 1962, at approximately 2:15 a.m., radar operator Jose Besutti was staring at his scope in the Flight Control Tower at Ezeiza International Airport, just west of Buenos Aires. Suddenly, he saw an unidentified blip and contacted airport manager Horacio Alora. As the tower crew watched, the UFO landed right smack dab on Ezeiza's main runway.

Grabbing a pair of binoculars, Alora spotted a silvery disc-shaped UFO sitting on the runway 2,000 meters (600 yards) from the tower. An "hombrecito" (little man) climbed out and walked around on the asphalt as if it were a road. The UFO had flashing red and white lights.

Just then, the tower radio squawked, "This is Pan-Am 609 Heavy, nonstop jet service from Rio de Janeiro, coming in on final approach."

"Madre de Dios!" Alora shouted, "Tell him not to land."

As one operator raced to the radio, the tower crew heard another transmission from the four-engined Pan American DC-8. "Ezeiza Tower, this is PanAm 609 Heavy. Just passing the outer marker."

Grabbing the microphone himself, Alora shouted, "PanAm, go around! Repeat, go around! Do not attempt to land."

"Passing the inner marker," the pilot said, "Jesus H. Christ! Who left that truck on the runway!?"

"That's no truck!" Alora shouted, "It's a flying saucer!"

Besutti and the others opened the tower windows and began yelling at the UFO occupant (or the clueless truck driver, emphasis mine). "Get out of there! Hurry!"

The occupant simply stood there. Just then, the big jetliner dropped out of the overcast, lights on and engines whining--startled by the sight of the DC-8 descending toward him, the occupant dashed back to the UFO. A hatch popped open in the bottom hemisphere, and he dove through it.

Suddenly, the UFO began glowing. As the DC-8 touched down, it rose to a height of 600 meters (1,980 feet) and then zoomed eastward toward Uruguay "at a vertiginous (dizzying) speed." Five seconds later, the DC-8 on its rollout rushed right over the spot where the UFO occupant had been standing.

Here it is in pictures:

Here it is in other words:

About 2 am on December 20 1962, Fred has a brain (brane) fart and decides to get out of his light duty vehicle and check his engine right in the middle of runway 11-29. There is a DC-8 approaching with so many souls on board and no way to convince the tower crew that they have all fallen asleep and are all having the same bad dream, so it came to pass that a window into another dimension opened up to allow Fred time to clear the runway before his poor judgement ruins Christmas for everyone involved.

For homework: Determine the true location of this alternate dimension and actual "vertiginous" land speed Fred was able to "fly" east toward Uruguay.


Blue Ball Orange Ball

I searched my correspondence file and found this from Alan Bennett ( I think the blue ball at the gas station has generated enough excitement that this information seems timely.

I copied this so as not to have to rewrite it.


I am writing from Port Aransas, Texas. PA is at the mouth of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel and the Gulf Intracoastal waterway. These days I am the concessions manager on a 70 ft. catamaran fishing boat. We take tourists fishing to 40 plus miles offshore.

Since you asked, I will tell you about what I now call " Orange Ball Day ".

On or about November 20, 1975, I was captain on an 80 ft. crew boat, " The Wilderness ", working out of Port O'Connor, Texas. About 10:30 PM we were returning from a run out to Mallard 33, a shallowwater jack up rig about 3 miles offshore and 20 miles on the Galveston side of the Matagorda Ship Channel, the entry point from the Gulf into Port O'Connor.

It had been an uneventful trip with minimal winds and seas. We were gliding along at 22 knots and I was simply watching to make sure we weren't going to collide with anything.

My engineer was asleep in a cot behind the helm and my deckhand asleep in his cot below in the galley.

I happened to look to my starboard. Already there right out my starboard window was a dimly glowing orange sphere about fifteen times the diameter of the full moon. It pulsated in brightening and dimming in an irregular pulsation. Its appearance was as though you had reached into a barbeque pit at night with a pair of tongs and brought out a briquet and watched the color changes that occured as the air blew over it. And it was cruising alongside of us at our speed.

I can assure you I had never in my life seen anything like that. I decided that the way to make sure I was not hallucinating was to wake my engineer, so I turned around and reached over and shook him: " Hey, Moose... look at this!! "

As soon as he opened his eyes he was looking at it... and he came flying up out of a dead sleep and stood there looking at it, and I had my answer... it was really out there.

Both of us remained silent for the next few minutes. It was me who spoke first, even as we both continued to watch this sphere. " I'm going to throw my light on it and see what happens".

I set the Azimuth on the my spotlight and swung it around sideways so that when I turned the spot on it would illuminate the sphere. My intent was to flip the light on-off-on-off a few times
as if to say " We see you. Now what? "

I flipped on the switch...the spotlight ray went right to the sphere and it simultaneuously, and instantaneously, vanished right before our eyes. This is something maybe 100 feet across.

I grabbed the throttles and stopped the boat dead in the water. We both went outside and scanned the night sky but the object was gone and it did not return. ( Visually, at least ).

Not caring to bore you with further details, I will point out that mathematics and geometry started issuing from my brain a few days later. I took the view then as I do now that this encounter had something to do with that, so I began a long process of trial and error which resulted in the things you have seen on this site.

I invite you, xxxxx, to take your time and review the elucidations planet by planet. I now know they were considered enlightenment itself in several cultures. I personally especially like the
drawing " Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Tai Chi and the Decimal System. " The positions along the NS axis representing the Sun, Mercury, Venus and the Earth are faithfully to correct scale and the distances between each pair are different along that line.

Sun-Mercury distance= 1.0000000000
Mercury-Venus distance= .866025404
Venus-Earth distance=.7172803076

But look what happens when you swing them with a compass to the circumference of a circle with a radius of (orbital distance Venus) to the .75 power. They form seven of the decimal divisions of that circle, taking up equal divisions along the circumference.

If this Earth follows a cosmic star law (and it does) and if it is infinite in number because of this (and it is) then you and I have been here forever and will be, forever. And this is enlightenment.

Thank you again. I look forward to hearing from you again.

My best to you,
Alan Bennett

God the Geometer

This post is in homage to my late friend Alan Bennett.

Not everything we learn is taught in school, and some things in fact are learned only by Devine Revelation.

If God is the Geometer, then Alan Bennett is a man of God. Notice I don’t write ‘was’, because I know you're still out there Alan, as am I.
