The Misses and Why He Metaphor

Finally, after about 16 years of 'wife' allusions, I think I get the metaphor; It's because she 'misses.'

This post pertains mostly to why I myself don't actually perform materially the things talked about in A Page In The Life blog, and am merely relegated to being an armchair scientist--after all, everything can be made to look very good on paper, the proof is in the doing.

"Those Who Can't...."
Appeared in the January 18, 2013 Los Angeles Times 
The short answer is that I wasn't the person meant to benefit from the real-world advantage of having done or discovered any of the multitude of things Revealed in the Quran, or any other Scripture when it is understood properly.

Otherwise, in my life I would have found myself in the right jobs, the right places, the right support, all the elements that go into making things 'Right,' but I didn't.

My part having been reduced to simply teaching or de-coding the Quran, so that those it was meant to serve may find themselves in more provident circumstances.

Surah 39 Zumar
اللَّهُ نَزَّلَ أَحْسَنَ الْحَدِيثِ
كِتَابًا مُّتَشَابِهًا مَّثَانِيَ
تَقْشَعِرُّ مِنْهُ
 جُلُودُ الَّذِينَ يَخْشَوْنَ رَبَّهُمْ
ثُمَّ تَلِينُ جُلُودُهُمْ وَقُلُوبُهُمْ إِلَى ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ
 ذَلِكَ هُدَى اللَّهِ
يَهْدِي بِهِ مَنْ يَشَاء
 وَمَن يُضْلِلْ اللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ هَادٍ (39:23

39:23)  God Promulgates/Teaches the Finest Metaphors
A Scripture of Similitudes (Consistent...) in Manifold terms (enfolded, multifaceted)
It makes shiver the skins
of those who are in awe of their Lord
Causing their skins (beings) and their hearts to incline toward God's Remembrance.
This is the Manner in Which God Gives Guidance;
He Guides with it Whom He Wills (to be guided) and,
whomever God let's go astray, what other guide have they?

Before my friend Francis gets on his 'pity' platform for me, I want to make it clear that the onset and the development of this blog did serve me in ways that are immeasurable.

It helped me refresh what was left of my brain after one very unfortunate environmental 'accident.' And the most noticeable problem was having lost my fluidity in speaking (forced speech, wrong words, failure to even find the right words...)

I got clued in by 'being told' to start by breaking down my own father's name Ibraheem=Ibra.him== 'to free them', 'their freedom'...(I won't take credit for that brainstorm, my Late Father may have more to say about it).

Surah 14 Ibrahim
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلاَّ بِلِسَانِ قَوْمِهِ
لِيُبَيِّنَ لَهُمْ
فَيُضِلُّ اللّهُ مَن يَشَاء
 وَيَهْدِي مَن يَشَاء
وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ (14:4

14:4 And We Never Send a Messenger Except Speaking His Community's Language
To Clarify for them.
(With it) God Misleads whomever He Wills,
and Guides whomever He Wills,
and He Is the Most Powerful, the Wisest (to Rule, Render Judgment...)

My take on it is that the Human Brain really is just about the most perfect Relational Database ever engineered, and this exercise helped me to re-establish most of my own lost functionality. Still not 'normal' but 'highly functional'; to the average person on the street, they could never guess I ever had a problem.

Throughout the Quran there is an embedded reference to 'relational databases' in the context that the messages themselves are multifaceted, or of a manifold nature, in that they have an outward implicit meaning, and then enfolded within each Sign is more explicit information. (See: The matter of the multiverse;  fractals (if it walks like a duck), and;  eternity (Letter from Capt. Bennett))

This is why there is a strong emphasis on the interpretation of metaphors, or allegories in order to derive the hidden (occult) information veiled within the mystery--the Quran, a Mystical text, as a Practical Tool; here used for Science and Math, but the methods applied here can be readily extended to other fields.  The caveat emptor is to never interpret them in such a manner as to let selfish interests or sedition rule.

Surah 12 Yusuf
وَكَذَلِكَ يَجْتَبِيكَ رَبُّكَ وَيُعَلِّمُكَ مِن تَأْوِيلِ الأَحَادِيثِ
وَيُتِمُّ نِعْمَتَهُ عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَى آلِ يَعْقُوبَ
كَمَا أَتَمَّهَا عَلَى أَبَوَيْكَ مِن قَبْلُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَقَ
 إِنَّ رَبَّكَ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ (12:6

12:6) (God Said to Joseph) "In this manner Your Sustainer Elects You, and Will Teach You the Inner Meaning of  Metaphors (Dreams, Events, Stories...), and Will Complete His Blessings upon You and upon the House of Jacob;
As He Bestowed it upon Your forefathers before, Abraham and Isaac.
Truly, Your Lord is Omniscient, Judicious!"

وَقَالَ الَّذِي اشْتَرَاهُ مِن مِّصْرَ لاِمْرَأَتِهِ
أَكْرِمِي مَثْوَاهُ عَسَى أَن يَنفَعَنَا أَوْ نَتَّخِذَهُ وَلَدًا
وَكَذَلِكَ مَكَّنِّا لِيُوسُفَ فِي الأَرْضِ
 وَلِنُعَلِّمَهُ مِن تَأْوِيلِ الأَحَادِيثِ
وَاللّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَى أَمْرِهِ
وَلَـكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ (12:21

12:21...And in this manner we Established Joseph throughout the Earth
And Taught Him the Interpretation (Inner Meaning) of Metaphors (Stories, Dreams...)
And God Champions His Will (Manifests His Will)
Yet, most People are Unaware.

Surah 16 Bees
وَلَقَدْ نَعْلَمُ أَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ
إِنَّمَا يُعَلِّمُهُ بَشَرٌ لِّسَانُ الَّذِي يُلْحِدُونَ إِلَيْهِ أَعْجَمِيٌّ
 وَهَـذَا لِسَانٌ عَرَبِيٌّ مُّبِينٌ (16:103

16:103) And We Know that they say (accusatively),
"It is only a Man who teaches it to Him," and the language of the One they wickedly point to is foreign (non-Arabic speaking),
and This (Revelation) is obviously in the Arabic tongue, Clearly Revealed (elucidated here in English).

Having understood certain aspects of the Message, the intention is for it to be renewed or propagated anew throughout the Human Experience (not only because it was Abraham's wish that it be so, and not because everyone has to be a 'mohslimb'--which sounds to me like a 'banana plant branch') so that those not familiar with the scope of the information contained within it or those hearing it for the first time may benefit from it.

And, for the rest of us armchair warriors, the remembrance of it helps our brains on a physical level to keep senility at bay, by the simple act of having to recall a factoid or two, or too many.

Surah 51 Zariyat
وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَى تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (51:55

51:55 ...and Remind (of it), indeed the Remembrance (of Quran) Benefits the Believers (Faithful)...

Surah 80 3'abassa
أَوْ يَذَّكَّرُ فَتَنفَعَهُ الذِّكْرَى (80:4

80:4) ..or Remind him of it (Scripture) that he may have benefitted from its remembrance...

Surah 87 A.A3'la
سَنُقْرِؤُكَ فَلَا تَنسَى (87:6

87:6) We Teach You (Make You Recite It) so You do not forget...

Of a certainty, a proven method to hedge against forgetfulness, should you ever need to 'follow that fish.'

All that, and it helps keep my mind off why my son's Texts reach me while his Phone calls don't even register in my phone log--What? I gotta know telephony from A-Z, too?



"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".


Ahh 2B A Stah

I was trying not to post anything new in 2012 and simply spend the rest of my time completing earlier posts; some of which were set aside while new ones were started, some of which had work lost mid sentence and the material could not be readily recalled for completion.

But here are a few thoughts on what others (them) think.

Let me preface what follows by saying that I am not in the best frame of mind--hard day having to digest the confirmation that I am step-mother to my own children; my grandchildren are afraid to so much as look at me--God only knows what they are being told about me; my hair is falling out in clumps from spending too much time at 0G and not due to my jumping for joy, but being hopping mad; I still hear random individuals take the liberty of pronouncing my name to whomever/whatever Unknown is on the other side of the phone (Skype)line when I pop into my neighborhood Starbucks (I had avoided going there for several weeks and then when I ventured in again that Mr Oh!G still could be overheard doing the same); then to have that one individual actually wake me from my sleep by calling me from within my private room.

Look, if I so much as suspect that voice as coming from a man or woman I've come across I have no reason to trust them, because, well because this and still no reasonable explanation (so whoever knows this much about me is by default automatically implicated in the crime and that's why no signal from outerspace, see I can ignore them just like they did me and then some, because I can do it on multiple levels)!

I find myself still making excuses for noises and pressure changes in my car, trying to rationalize what's weird, and the flashes I see while driving or going about my daily so-called life are not because they are shooting my picture but whatever it is I know Who to thank for what I've been calling migraines.

So this post is all about apertures. Openings, or 3ayns, like our eyes where light enters, and anuses where skutt leaves, and why never the two 3'ayn shall meet.

Overheard at, where else but the salone of the 21st century, coffee shop a man was explaining to someone how it is the very nature of the human brain to be the center of its universe-- to make everything in the world about that individual and why everyone, no matter who they are, or what they say, all want to be a Star! Not a Planet, or Blackhole, or some other Space Debris, but a Star--and not as a destination-- no wonder we are all still stuck here on (multiple) Earth.

Spoken like someone who only knows everyone in Los Angeles. And this man's sweeping assessment of everyone's basic nature and true character is nothing more than the projection of probably his own aspirations onto everyone else.

After all if he wants it, then surely doesn't everybody else?

Are they any better than what he thinks?

Can they possibly be any different?

"Why Would Anyone Try Not to be Noticed?"
What? Why? Are they aliens?

Well, unlike him, I can't speak for everyone else. But some of us, me, a handful of friends, family, and acquaintences don't seem to want that. Some of us do-- the ones born and raised in LA, but on the whole we don't spend time even thinking about it. Not that we can't appreciate a Star when we see one. I enjoy a reason to dress up and see a show as much as anyone, but that  doesn't mean I want to be in every production!

My Mother, for example, all she is ever on about (when she catches sight of me, anyway) is 'Land! Land!' and I'm like 'What on Earth is Her preoccupation with Land?'

True, its rising up out of the Water is fascinating, but that trick got old after the first time.

Speaking for myself, its not so much what I want as much as what I don't or didn't ever want--any problems. Because then I would be forced to have to sit down and try to solve them and that leads to just one math mistake after another (and then HE wipes out the final touches to my antenna).

And for the gentleman who thought he was channeling my Father on his way out the shop by telling me to "Study!" That's like the last thing my Father would ever adjure me to do, in fact He once emphatically told me I do too much reading and studying and to make His point stick, He literally threw the book at me (it was Calculus).

"Books have led some to learning and others to madness."


Seeing Doubles

The women pictured above are not any direct relation to me, however, their uncanny resemblence to my birth Mother and my Daughter are more than just a passing interest.

I don't even know how I chanced on the image of Nevada Stoody (Duchess of Oporto), I wasn't searching for her, and I remember thinking it odd that in that particular image she looked alot like my mom, although not so much in other pictures of her.

The image of the Paris Woman, by Dennis Hopper, I had come across when looking into the retrospective of his art exhibit soon after he passed away last year, and it floored me how much His muse looks like my daughter, born 5 years prior to the 1994 date of this particular artwork.

On seeing Nevada's image and my mentioning the likeness to my daughter's grandmother, my daughter said, 'Is that why you're so pretty, Mom?'

And it being a mutual admiration society, I countered, 'That's why You're so pretty, daughter; and then look at Dennis Hopper's muse!'

Then she said, 'Yeah, that one is weird, she does look just like me.'

And then she asks how that could even be possible and answers her own question, 'Maybe it's because there is something to us all coming from just the one pair. Or maybe, it's just some kind of weird dream we are all having.'

She goes on to say, 'Whenever I say things like that to Dad, he says, 'There you go, sounding just like your mother!''

And then she says, 'You mean, I sound like a Scientist?'

And then I think-- more like, sober.

To get to the Science behind these Dopplegangers (convincing doubles, anyway), we need to take a closer look.

خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا
 وَأَنزَلَ لَكُم مِّنْ الْأَنْعَامِ ثَمَانِيَةَ أَزْوَاجٍ
 يَخْلُقُكُمْ فِي بُطُونِ أُمَّهَاتِكُمْ خَلْقًا مِن بَعْدِ خَلْقٍ فِي ظُلُمَاتٍ ثَلَاثٍ
 ذَلِكُمُ اللَّهُ رَبُّكُمْ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ فَأَنَّى تُصْرَفُونَ (39:6

39:6 He Created you (all) from One (singular/united) Soul, then Brought forth from Her (that Soul) Her Mate/Spouse/Dual; and He Propagated/Revealed/Sent Down to you (all) of/from Blessings/Affirmations (usually al.'an3am'  الْأَنْعَام     is interpreted as 'Cattle', but does not make sense in this context, so here rendered as secondary meanings having to do with 'affirmation/yes/aye/agreement?') 8 Pairs/duals/mates; He Creates you (all) in your mothers' stomachs (wombs) (one) Creation after another Creation, in a threefold darkness/mystery; This Is Allah, Your Sustainer, To Whom Belongs The Dominion; There is No God Except for Him; How is it that you are (all) so misguided/lost/wasted?

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُواْ رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ
 وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالاً كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاء
 وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءلُونَ بِهِ وَالأَرْحَامَ
 إِنَّ اللّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا4:1
(4:1) Harken! All You People! Pay careful attention to your Sustainer Who Created You (all) from One Soul (singular/united) and Created from Her ('soul' is feminine gender in Arabic) Her Mate/Dual/Spouse and broadcast from them Men in multitudes and Women; and heed God (by whom) you demand mutual rights (from each other) and (respect) the wombs (that bore you); indeed, God Is Ever Watchful over you. (رَقِيبًا  raqib, means Observes/Watchful but also implies a 'sergeancy' (serves a protective duty))

Sign 4:1, from Sura 4, The Women, makes mention of our common ancestry from one 'integrated' soul. The theme of having been created out of one 'living entity' is repeated in Signs 7:189 and 6:98; that the 'living entity' is a 'man+woman' is mentioned in 49:13.

And given that ancestry and heredity are closely linked to chromosomes, it would not be a great stretch to take Sign 4:1 as the Choromosome Number 4: Region 1 (either p or q arm; but since the p arm has only 1 region for the human chromosome 4, I would assume this particular sign is pointing something out in that region that has to do with "tasa' luna bihi" which breaks down to something like "T sa' loena bihi wa al.arhham' , 'T's color is worsened by (it) and the wombs/matrices', or 'its color worsens by it and the wombs/matrices' , variably 'T-C (ar. letter seen--as in cytosin) Termination color..."

A geneticist may have some insight into what the God/controller is in this particular region or chromosome 4 that behaves in such a manner, and it also functions as a protection/something that serves to protect or discharges other duties akin to those of a 'sergeant' and further that it serves as a 'marker' ('marker', 'sergeant', 'watches/observes/control/oversee/proctor//blue-pencil (edits)' all derive from رقيبا /رقيبه  raqiba, raqibah,  and the absolute form raqibat means 'stake-holder'; and, the simple root rqb رقب means 'neck').

Sign 39:6 in Chapter 39, Az_Zumar (The Groups), can be treated the same way as 4:1 paying careful attention to the word الْأَنْعَام      al.an3am, that while it does mean cattle and points to '8- couples/pairs/espoused twosome' ثَمَانِيَةَ أَزْوَاجٍ,  something these 'cattle' have in common/differ is also associated with the secondary meaning of al.an3am's of it having to do with several variants:

  • the root n3m نْعَم  v. to refine/improve/enhance/polish/upgrade/perfect/cultivate/hone
  • نعم the same word without the diacritic marks means 'yes', an affirmative/positive/absolute/agreement
  • نعام  or نْعَام  na3am means 'ostrich'; some genetically remarkable characteristics of which include: 
acute eyesite and hearing; the fastest animal on 2 legs (run over 70 kilometres per hour (43 mph) for up to 30 minutes); have just two toes on each foot ( an adaptation that seems to aid in running, most birds have four),  the nail on the larger, inner toe resembles a hoof (found in cattle/horses/ungulates) and the outer toe has no nail; the largest eyes of any land vertebrate and they are shaded from sunlight falling from above; largest egg of any living bird; female ostrich can pick out their own eggs from communal nests. The word 'ostrich' derives from the Latin word for 'camel'.

  • لْأَنْعَام la.an3am with diacritica لانعام  seems to mean 'to fully' and without the diacritic marks لأنعم ' to softer' which would indicate making something most flexible/pliable or have the most plasticity.
  • and finally, the full word الْأَنْعَامِ   al.an3am(i) primarily meaning 'cattle'
Of which  8-pairs have been proferred to Humanity. 8-pairs that are in agreement (like matching autosomes? that are somehow associated with 'cattle'). Makes one wonder what the 8 types of cattle share chromosome-ally speaking? Cattle, or hoofed animals/ungulates is an order of mammals, of which 6 to 8 survive.

Recent sequencing of bovine genome has determined that cows have 22,000 genes, and 80% of bovine genes are shared with humans--ie., that cows are much more similar to humans than rodents. (Do the 8 pairs (matching/affirmatives) mentioned here add up to that 80%?)

The Human DNA is comprised of 46 chromosomes (22 pairs of autosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes, half are contributed by the mother and the complementary half by the father).

If counted individually, and taking the maternal chromosomes first, then autosome #39 is the maternal portion of chromosome 20, which happens to be metacentric, (no luck finding a diagram of chromosome 20, so presumably there is a region 6).

The indication being that these shared 8 pairs have characteristics that enhance/refine the human; makes for plasticity/pliability when 'matrixed' or in the womb (?is it what makes infants 'softer' or more completely 'pliant' that they are able to pass through the birth canal in humans?)

But the really interesting synchronicity is the shared human/bovine DNA and that this post is about body doubles/clones and my having read the sci-fi novel The House of the Scorpion by Francis Farmer a few years ago (a great read) in which clones were propagated using cows. I wonder how much of this information was available to the author at the time of her writing the book and how much of it she had contrived only to see the related Truth of it some time later.

The Arabic word for womb and matrix is the same, and according to the online etymology dictionary the word matrix drives from the following:

late 14c., from O.Fr. matrice, from L. matrix (gen. matricis) "pregnant animal," in L.L. "womb," also "source, origin," from mater (gen. matris) "mother." Sense of "place or medium where something is developed" is first recorded 1550s; sense of "embedding or enclosing mass" first recorded 1640s. Logical sense of "array of possible combinations of truth-values" is attested from 1914.
The logical sense is the most captivating here in that the reference in Sign 39:6 to 'affirmations'/agreement' or 'yes' for the word an3am is very closely related to 'truth-values' of which there are 2; either 0=False or 1=True, and is would appear that what was selected is the 'matching' or pairs that agreed, 0 for 0, 1 for 1; and, again, of which there are 8 pairs.

Then, I write as I choke back the tears, guess who's doppleganger this is?

How'd They Do That?

And here is the maternal contribution to your name:

Starting with the letter '3ayn' ع:
The letter name for which is derived from Proto-Semitic *ʿayn- "eye", and the Phoenician letter had an eye-shape, ultimately derived from the ı͗r hieroglyph.

To this day, 'ayin in Hebrew, Arabic and Maltese means "eye" (‘ayno in Assyrian).

The second syllable is taken as (ab) then it means 'water' in Persian, and it means Father in Arabic, a root that more than likely derives from the ancient word in Egyptian (nb) for Lord + Master. (In combination with the '3ayn' ع, it forms words meaning 'spring' or 'well' and 'Father's /Master's/Lord's Eye'

If the second syllable is taken to be (n.ab) then there is a root in ancient Egyptian  'nb' which means "All". Interesting in that the phoneme N in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs is the 'water ripple' and is also used as a preposition from, in, by, to...

Taken as a whole, it is what's known as Ziziphus zizyphus , a fruiting shade tree, commonly called jujube.  The Arabic name for which sidr, and sadr, appears in the Quran Surah 53 (Najm. Revelation, The Star) and Surah 56 (The Event) as one of the trees the denizens of Paradise will find themselves surrounded by:

 عِندَ سِدْرَةِ الْمُنْتَهَى  (53:14  
عِندَهَا جَنَّةُ الْمَأْوَى (53:15) 
     إِذْ يَغْشَى السِّدْرَةَ مَا يَغْشَى (53:16  

مَا زَاغَ الْبَصَرُ وَمَا طَغَى (53:17)
53:14 (He met Him) by the Lote Tree of the Farthest Limit (Sidrat al-Muntaha)
53:15 Near it is the Garden Haven (Sanctuary, Resting Place, Abode)
53:17 His (The Prophet's) Eye (vision) did not waver/evade/avoid nor dominate/control (it)
Sign 53:14 refers to one point at which The Prophet (pbuh) met Gabriel during one of His descents, at the Sidrat al-Muntahā (Arabic: سدرة المنتهى) -- a Lote tree that marks the end of the seventh heaven, the boundary where no creation can pass (and do You wanna know why no one can pass? Because if You do manage such a feat and find Yourself at God's Doorstep, God Himself acts like no One's ever died before and hijacks Your spaceship and brings You right back down to Earth where You (or at least I) keep wishing this persistent after image would all just go away!--that's why).

 فِي سِدْرٍ مَّخْضُودٍ (56:28

Where's The Disconnect?

It appears, "what we've got here is a failure to communicate."--spoken by the character Luke (Paul Newman)in the movie Cool Hand Luke, 1967.

The reason this well-laid plan backfired is because while all the other girls fall over themselves when they see exactly what it is I am looking at and get all trippy for a love story, my particular lexicon makes the same message they are receiving sound like a joke!

Take for example when the women sat around discussing His rather novel 'arrival' in '96 (or was it '97?)

They went gaga over it and went on about the incident like it were the hottest romance novel at the local bookclub meeting.

I got the distinct impression that He 'landed' in the backyard and about the only penetration that took place was His passing through my closed French Doors on His way out, stopping briefly to make sure I am aware of His presence and to intimate, 'Don't touch my face'. ('don't touch my face...don't look at my hands...' makes me wonder is there any part of Him not off limits to me?)

And on the way out He manages to get every appliance and electronic gadget to act up.

The Romantics at the round table discussion get all sad about it, saying things like, 'She thinks He left her...' (Well--yeah, but He finds other means of engagement, check out the expression on the Lost Bunny of the Apocalypse's face; just too precious).

Prickly City Cartoon Panel Dec. 14, 2011
The Lost Bunny of The Apocalypse's Wife Comes Forward

And more cooing from the peanut gallery, "She doesn't know Who He is?" "They don't recognize each other!"

Their hearts are in the right place, those sentimental dears, doesn't everybody get to buy into the fairytale pap ever since they r knee hi to a grasshopper?

That's why the ruse generally works, well it did in every case until now.

The failure due in large part to Miss Interpretation (that would be me, not perfect enuf to get Translated like the rest of ewes, so I have to sit here and Interpret for myself).

Take for example if our protagonist were to say something like, "Me déshabiller!"

All the love struck bunnies would swoon--seeing the perils He withstood to get to Her; or, if shallow like me, at just what a hottie He Is!

But what they understand to mean, "Undress me!" she takes to mean, "I Am This Idiot! ( me dis (a Brooklyn 'this') habeel هبيلc!")

And when she dashes off a message to apprise Him of this Revelation, (if not to Him directly, then to SomeOne she knows will forward it), He writes back, "Don't yell at Me!"
To which she blithely responds (without sending), "WHO INVENTED CAPS LOCK?!!!"
And He volleys with, "...little girls should not use so many exclamation marks!"

Which leaves her speechless and with nothing left To_Do but k-p duty and start peeling onions from Chicago vis-a-vis Calcutta_Kingston (link) in response to His final dig search phrase "you're not supposed to do that" (Dec 6, 2011) so she can get a handle on what exactly she was not supposed to do, while contemplating what page(s) He lands on when He searches "quotes about being let down" because Google Analytics takes more than 8 hours to compile that information?

How's this for a been-let-down quote, and u can quote me, "Krift hayati wa izmikt hayat ad.dunya."
Strangely enough, i still find it easy to remain upbeat, not because i am hopeful things can get better, but in knowing no matter what comes next i've lived through worse.

But my hand is forced, even though I don't feel that's the case, but woe betide me if I supress anything that's supposed to be Said.

Like, I've been simmering this one for a few months, too:

Surah 110 An.Nasr ( النصر Victory, Help)
إِذَا جَاء نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ (110:1

وَرَأَيْتَ النَّاسَ يَدْخُلُونَ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ أَفْوَاجًا (110:2

فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ تَوَّابًا (110:3

Yeah, I Know, How hypocritical of Me!

There is no accessible help that I can see nor any Real Victory for me, either--I wake up in Pain each day (like it's been for the last...since 1997, you count the years) and yet there is still another 'flippin' day, and some say, 'Quit carping, whining, waa waa--it's nothing a warm (private) shower and a long comfortable nap can't cure,' and I say, "Well, I manage to get one or the other but not one after the other, so now what?"

When The Buddha said, "Life is Pain," I didn't think to take it literally.

Just like I didn't think the saying , "Your God is a Jealous God," was meant to be taken literally, either.
But apparently the thinking goes, 'You mean to tell Me there are Men around and they haven't figured that One out!"

{This needs to be said--about the Jealousy thing.

My social ineptitude prevented me from seeing that someOne took it so personally that I would rather sit closer to the wall socket than to sit next to Him on the sofa at Starbux a few weeks ago, and in what I thought to be an unrelated event, 'Michael' asks if we can share an outlet at the self-same Starbux a couple of days ago and, as expected, He came prepared and produced a powerstrip to allow us to share the electric socket.

I didn't think anything of it--to 'plug in' with Him; it's Michael, afterall!--not thinking that The Unnamed One (because We have never been Formally Introduced) would take exception to what has been interpreted as want-Ton$$ behaviour in some quarters, as evidenced by the November 15, 2011 Argyle Sweater cartoon panel on the right. My Bad! }
So, we may as well pull out all the stops and Hand them The Commandments with the added Subtext:

  1. Your God is a Jealous God; You shall have No Other God Before Me--unless they can figure out a Way to get there Ahead of Me or Behind Me.
  2. Thou Shalt Not Kill--That's What Your Uncle Mike is for!
  3. Thous Shalt Not Steal--That's What Your Uncle Jack is for!
  4. Thou Shalt Not Covet thy Neighbor's Wife--when your dead brother's wife will do just fine (lucky for you, Son, you have no other brother).
...and so on,--the subtext having been supressed in the original version so as not to confuse the nascent society that first got it.

Surah 2 Al-Baqara (The Cow)
(2:140)  Do you maintain that Ibrahim, and Ismael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Tribes were Jews, or Christians; Say, "Who Knows better you or God? And who is more lost (misdirected/wrong) that those who mute testimony (suppress witnesses) given them by God, and God is not Unaware of What you do."


Talk Like An Egyptian

You know how I know You are wayyy too late?
Because it's come to this and I still don't see anybody around here that I recognize (I thought I did, but he denied it, then deleted any info on the web that pointed to it).

So, for this part, I am guessing I have to talk like an Egyptian.

The old song goes:
العتبة قزاز
والسلم نايلو ف نايلو
The Step (Threshold) is Glass
And the Ladder (Stairway) is Nylon, Nylon...

Surah 24 An.Noor The Lightاللَّهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونِةٍ لَّا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ نُّورٌ عَلَى نُورٍ يَهْدِي اللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَن يَشَاء وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ (24:35

The standard word for Glass (zujajatin) زُجَاجَةٍ appears in the Quran Chapter 24 and is discussed in an earlier post The Chair and The Lamp
Other mentions of glass or cups/chalise occur in the following verses:

Surah 27 Al.Naml Ants
قِيلَ لَهَا ادْخُلِي الصَّرْحَ فَلَمَّا رَأَتْهُ حَسِبَتْهُ لُجَّةً وَكَشَفَتْ عَن سَاقَيْهَا قَالَ إِنَّهُ صَرْحٌ مُّمَرَّدٌ مِّن قَوَارِيرَ قَالَتْ رَبِّ إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي وَأَسْلَمْتُ مَعَ سُلَيْمَانَ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ 27:44 

Contextual Interpretation
27:44 He (Solomon) said to Her (She'ba), "Enter the Castle/Tower!" Yet when She saw it, She deemed it 'a deep watery expanse' and She bared Her legs (so as to wade into/across it). He said, "It is a Caste/Tower made of (paved with) glass." She said, "O, My God! Indeed I have 'wronged myself,' and She surrendered (became a Muslim) as Solomon had to God, the Sustainer of All the Worlds.

Inni Atthlumtu nafsi     إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي   is typically understood to mean that She'ba had sinned against herself, which may or may not be the essential meaning of the phrase and I kind o' know how this could be misconstrued.

Based on first hand experience, whenever 'He' comes out of 'nowhere' and tries to show someone an 'alternate route' so they don't get stuck in traffic, 'He' doesn't exactly announce 'Himself' by 'Name.'  What I actually 'heard' Him Project was 'It's Me!' And I quickly got out of the way and allowed Him to Pass me (see, me with a lower case m, not Me!, like that.)

So, if She'ba had a similar encounter, She had no other way to refer to Him other than 'Me', which anyone not having had the experience would mistake Her for referring to Herself when in fact She had no other way to talk about Him other than that He Referred to Himself in the First Person Object Pronoun 'Me' when She'ba 'heard' Him, too.

And She'ba, having attracted Solomon on a level where She scored an invitation to His digs, probably was not a woman prone to 'tthulm'  ظَلَمْ ,as in sinning or wronging Herself or others, (else He would have met Her on the Battlefield), but that She probably Had 'passed' or 'eclipsed' or 'shadowed' Him (Who?, Why, Me, of course!). How's that for Hilarity? (Note to Solomon,; don't worry Your handsome self about it, I am not asking for an invitation to Your House, since I know you are Married to Her, and I don't want to invite such bad karma as putting designs on some other woman's man--it's like I been telling every One all along, Yous got the wrong girl!)

But for the pragmatic, pedantic, application to electronics and antennas, say, We go with this one--

27:44 So, He (Solomon) said to Her (The Queen of Sheba), "Enter/(Log In)/State/Bring Down/Cut Open/Profess/Say/Affirm 'True of False' the Palace/Tower/Edifice/Story," and upon seeing it She thought/deemed/calculated/estimated/cast==threw across/cipher==put into code/computed (it) a pool of water, (an) Abyss/free space/indefinite expanse/immeasurable deep, fathomless cavity or expanse and She uncovered/revealed/showed her legs/trunk/crus/drive(s)/var. reddish-brown clay; He said/declared, "(It's an) Edifice/Palace/Tower/Story Paved/Satellite?/Tiled/Covered/Surfaced/Protected (aisle/pathway/lane supported (Disciple) from/of Glass/Bottles/Warrior Forces===Competing Forces/Fighting Forces." She said, "My God (Sustainer/Supporter/Creator)! I've been wronging/lost/shadowing/shading/umbraged/ghosting/lie-ing to myself and I surrender/believe, as with Solomon , God (Allah) Is The Sustainer/Creator/Supporter (of) The Worlds!"

According to 27:44, Sheba plays it straight and immediately Repents when She figures out that She'd made a mistake believing what She sees as a bottomless pit or a pool of water is nothing more than the shiny glass tile floor of Solomon's Palace. Because She had not seen anything like it in Her worldly experience she interpreted something unknown to Her, in this case the glass floor, as something She could understand, a pool of water--and immediately understood that Her limited Worldly experience kept Her from understanding the Greater Reality (The Unknown).

This anecdote would lead Any one of us to empathize with Her, not because She was a 'sinner', but because it is a Human frailty that we cannot immediately grasp the meaning of a new concept (an experience alien to our Life's experience) without some familiar point of reference, which may lead us to draw a wrong conclusion. For Sheba, her misinterpretation made her bare her legs to wade into what she thought was the water, for Me it means making one math (physics, spelling) mystake after another! (Besides, Solomon made it really easy for Sheba by offering an explanation on the spot AND making Himself available to witness Her surrender (Islam), unlike my case, where after a 19 year Hazing, the 'twin paradox' I run into denies it so to Whom should I surrender? Given the further razzing that someone surfs into this site with the search phrases, 'surrender fuzzy one,' and 'furj tired,'  and the winniningest one , 'I'm too cute too be obtuse'; besides, I'm a Muslim in the first place, is there such a thing as a double surrender? In that case, make mine a Double! Where do I go with that information, the nearest police station?)

At any rate, the basic understanding is that Sheba miscalculated the 'free space', that it was either boundless and/or had some other property having to do with or exclusive of 'reddish brown' clay, which leads me to thinking it having to do with diatomaceous earth??; (applications in nanotech, vacuum insulation, thermal barrier, can be selected or synthesized for color (distance between planes of regular packed spheres approx. 1/2 wavelength of the visible light...//waveguides) 

Unlike Her, I show no sign of Repentence, because I know this is what passes for Comic Relief around these here parts. And will add to my embarrassment by flagrantly conceptualizing 'Solomon's Palace,' given my keen inaccessible insight into the Unknown, relying heavily on the premise that it should work on some level (As Above, So Below!).

Okay, I lied, and I'm not building Solomon's Palace, for one thing who needs that much housework--I'm going for the Tower! (He Says, "And for another, what's the use when She picks up the land under it and slings it across the room like Sunday night's hash from Mel's Diner."--so, I take it that was not Holy Water they sprinkled me with for that little creative bent?)

Solomon's Tower So Far...See The Ladder?

Diamataceous Earth Puzzle Jar by Candalaria
(Nothing Says the Tower cannot Resemble This
But We R Being Cone Heads Here)

Key Design Parameters:
c= the full length of the 'ladder' which forms the side of the conic (the generators);
(it's fun when my readers offer to help, One surfs in with the search phrase, 'a man climbing the stairs is doing work against gravity,'  as when a Painter climbs a ladder, yet He Insists He is Not a Painter, but a ;Producer! And I say, 'So, You're the One that Produced this mess?' The while thinking, 'I am so tired of this walk-through as every Jim Carey movie character--that's what happens when the ;Producer refuses to listen to the Writer--ideas get stale fast!')
h= the height from the top of the 'tower' to the base of the cone
a= the vertex angle, or the angle of incline of the ladder/lattice to the vertical (approximately 15º)
r= is the..., (about one-fourth the ladder height, c ; ie, minimum r ==(1/4)c)
-Each step/rung of the ladder forms equally-spaced, even geodesics around the conic surface
-The ladder/lattice rails form (Lie along) the conic generator(s)-Depending on which portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is being propagated, the cone may either be a solid surface(conductive or dielectric) or open structure (free space) surrounding a tube or solid core (conductive of dielectric). If the latter, the clearance between the back of the ladder/lattice and anything behind it is at least...
-The top of the ladder/lattice structure must overextend the top rung/geodesic/conic 'landing' by...
The allusion to the 'Tower' being an Ediface of 'Bottle/Glass' seems to indicate that the dielectric (threshold/doorway) is borosilicate glass or the type of glass typically used in making bottles (Schott glass) or maybe drinking cups (soda-lime glass), vs. silica (like  fuzed quartz that's used in fiberoptics; counterintuitive, but that's what this says.)

The further allusion to being 'Competing Forces' indicates that relationship between the signals? similar to when 2 or more actuators provide conflicting inputs to a mechanism, that Sheba 'bared' her legs in order to 'step in' or 'enter' reinforces the imagery in that Human legs are another example of 'competing actuators'. Actuators is broadly described as any type of controller or system that converts one type of energy into motion, serving as the mechanism by which an artificial intelligence or autonomous being (ie, Human) acts upon its environment. 

That Solomon's Tower, described in Sign 27:44 as a  signal tower/ediface/satellite? is some type of antenna is further inferred from the language pertaining to 'competing forces,' typically associated with actuators (an antenna being a special case of an actuator that converts Radio Waves into Electric Energy (EMF) and vice versa).

Surah 76 Al.Insan Human
وَيُطَافُ عَلَيْهِم بِآنِيَةٍ مِّن فِضَّةٍ وَأَكْوَابٍ كَانَتْ قَوَارِيرَا 76:15
قَوَارِيرَ مِن فِضَّةٍ قَدَّرُوهَا تَقْدِيرًا 76:16

The word قَوَارِير kwareer is understood to mean glass/cups/crystal in another 3 verses. In 27:44, Solomon describes the floor of His palace as being صَرْحٌ مُّمَرَّدٌ مِّن قَوَارِيرَ , where the word qwareer قَوَارِيرَ is used to describe the surface and generally interpreted as 'glass.' In 76:15 denizens of Paradise are given cups قَوَارِيرَ made of glass or crystal, أَكْوَابٍ كَانَتْ قَوَارِيرَا and in 76:16 the cups or crystal are described further as being made of Silver قَوَارِيرَ مِن فِضَّةٍ which the recipients themselves determine or establish the measure/value of (typically assumed to be set by their own good deeds).

(from the Album 'Just Enough Education to Perform')

Because I have come to the same conclusion as another fellow American, Carl Sandburg, American Writer, Poet, Editor.
So...Let's Do The Time Warp, Again!

… And the void would be calling.

Let's do the Time Warp again.

(Guests) And then a step to the right.
(Narrator) With your hand on your hips.
(Guests) You bring your knees in tight.
But it's the pelvic thrust.
They really drive you insane.
Let's do the Time Warp Again.
Let's do the Time Warp, Again.
(Magenta) It's so dreamy
Oh, fantasy free me
So you can't see me
No not at all.
In another dimension
With voyeuristic intention.
Well secluded I see all...
(Riff Raff) With a bit of a mind flip... (via a well-c0nc0cted 'air fresherner')
(Magenta) You're into a time slip...
(Riff Raff) And nothing can ever be the same.
(Magenta) You're spaced out on sensation.
(Riff Raff) Like you're under sedation... (Welcome to Heaven, See. I. A...Non Such A...)

{Added to this Post on 29.10.2011: Men strutting about in boys' bodies, being loud and boystrous for no apparent reason at Starbucks tonight, they took note of the coffeeshop's location/business card, had a camera and were taking pictures; the first group of 5 came together and represented different ethnicities (African American, Asian, and 3 others (may have been various Caucasian/Semetic/whatever else is other). Once they left, 2 more came in, the one dressed for an early Holloween (maybe a poor version of Robin Hood) was about 5' 3" tall, well-groomed hair, caucasian and seemed excitable, a loudmouth; the other was an exotic mix, maybe Hispanic/Asian, dressed casually and much quieter, also not very tall, maybe about 5'7".

As an Aside, apparently discussing Physics/Scripture with the Void (like we do here) qualifies as some sort of Proselytism, as evidendced by some woman seated nearby that made deliberate eye contact with me and giggled as much in her phone conversation with someone.

What to think of all this: If these shysters want to grab my attention they should do something more constructive than to scramble the preset radio stations in my vehicle--it is in dire need of a good detailing, why not do something helpful like that!}

And in all fairness I Am, once again, to give fair warning. My invisible 'Friend', the One euphemistically referred to as 'Husband' (ie., One Who Keeps An Eye on The House, Affords me some measure of Protection) is not a childhood pretend playmate that I have failed to outgrow or my 'Higher Self', but what some of you call 'God'.

I only say 'Husband' not because we are married or that I am anyone's Wife, not by any stretch of the imagination, but because I have been known to throw a tizzy-fit in 'His' Presence and 'God' puts up with it for no apparent reason other than that my patience approaches that of the Saints'. And while it would be ideal and lovely (and kindo' boring) for all of us to have those qualities, our individuality dictates that we each bring our unique approach to problem-solving; mine happens to be a very long fuse of varying indeterminate lengths leading to an explosive temper (off-the-chart-multiple-Supernova-temper) at the end of my protracted prim peaceful patience. Thankfully, since this condition has been imposed on me and I was not born this way, a reasonable accommodation is provided for this legal disqualifier (debility, medical condition, encumberance, ...whathaveyou):

Trees, branches, fractals are some examples of dendrites and 2 key parameters characteristic of dendritic growth are the tip radius and tip velocity. 

"Dendritic growth also provides an archetypal problem in morphogenesis, where a complex pattern evolves from simple starting conditions. As one of the simplest nontrivial examples of spontaneous pattern formation, the physical understanding and mathematical description of dendrites remains of interest to mathematicians, scientists, and engineers."—from the article, Dendritic Growth Tip Velocities and Radii of Curvature in Microgravity, by Koss LaCombe,

Other naturally ocurring phenomena which display dendrite formation/dendritic growth are the shape of EMF, magnetic flux...

Tesla's 'Dooms Day Machine' and inorganic formations such as icicles and neural networks

Examples of Naturally occuring Dendrites.
Both organic and inorganic include (clockwise from top left);
 metal alloys, water icicles, fly eye neurons, brain cells/networks.

The fine structure constant, α ~ 1/137 is a dimensionless fundamental physical constant that surfaces in both Mechanistic and Anthropic considerations. (See Sifting Through The Rubble for more about what else may be couched in the fine grain structure constant).

SpaceTime as described in a Scientific American article.
According to 'spin foam' and how the 'spin network' changes with Time, is remeniscent of Dendritic growth.

The image is not very clear but it reveals
the geometry at small scales is similar to dendrite patterns
The Evolution of Geometry in Time, shown above is taken from the Scientific American article Atoms of Space and Time (Lee Smolin, Scientific American Sp 15, 56 - 65 (2006) doi:10.1038/scientificamerican0206-56sp) depicts the geometry of spacetime from the evolution of 'spin foam', ie., the 'spin network' when it includes Time as the 4th dimension:
“The (spacetime) geometry changes discontinuously, becoming a single (1) quantum of volume and 3 quanta of surface area, as shown in the last frame. In this way, time as defined by a spin foam evolves by a series of abrupt, descrete moves, not by a continuous flow…"
(Note: This contradicts the 'Time as a Line' premise (see wolframalpha definition discussed below), in that the very definition of a line implies continuitity since between any 2 points on a Line there is an Infinite number of Points.)

"Although speaking of such sequences as frames of a movie is helpful for visualization, the more correct way to understand the evolution of the geometry is as discrete ticks of a clock. At one tick the orange quantum of area is present; at the next tick it is gone—in fact, the disappearance of the orange quantum of area defines the tick. The difference in time from one tick to the next is approximately the Planck time, 10^-43 second. But time does not exist in between the ticks; there is no “in between.” In the same way that there is no water in between two adjacent molecules of water…”
(Note:While the 'Time vanishes between Tics' or 'Pops In and Out of Existence between Tics' premise is one way of explaining Time in the geometry/math of the evolving 'spin foam', it is this very behaviour of Time near the Planck scale that would make it Suspect as a Higher Dimensional Object manifesting/Transitting? a Lower Dimension, (my take on this spacetime geometry, remember what fun Emily is having with Bob...Oh, and poor Fred the Flatlander!)

In contrast to the author, Lee Smolin's,  explanation of 'quantum tic Time' in this 2006 Scientific American article, the "conventional" concept of Time from fractal dimension) follows:
"The term "fractal dimension" is sometimes used to refer to what is more commonly called the capacity dimension of a fractal (which is, roughly speaking, the exponent in the expression , where is the minimum number of open sets of diameter needed to cover the set). However, it can more generally refer to any of the dimensions commonly used to characterize fractals...

The notion of dimension is important in mathematics because it gives a precise parameterization of the conceptual or visual complexity of any geometric object. In fact, the concept can even be applied to abstract objects which cannot be directly visualized. For example, the notion of time can be considered as one-dimensional, since it can be thought of as consisting of only "now," "before" and "after." Since "before" and "after," regardless of how far back or how far into the future they are, are extensions, time is like a line, one-dimensional object..."
(Hmmm...'Time is a One-Dimensional Object Like a Line?'...Says the Observer from the 4-D SpaceTime Universe, refer to Flatlands--You mean to tell me it's a Line and Not a Complex Geometric Object? Not a Fractal? That it doesn't/cannot Loop Back Around?... And do other funny things (to my hair  /hare    /neverwhere)?)

Physicists Renate Loll and Dejan Stojkovic are working independently to discern the geometry of the 'early universe' and answer the question 'Did the early universe have just one spatial dimension?'

Studies suggest that the early universe — which expanded from a single point and was very, very small at first — was one-dimensional (like a straight line--here we go again with the linear thinking) before expanding to include two dimensions (2D, like a plane) and then three (like the world in which we live today).{Really, 3- and not 4-D is the world in which we live today?--That would mean my goose is cooked in No Time At All!} 

The theory of evolving dimensions presents a paradigm shift from the way we previously thought the cosmos came to BE.

The core idea is that the dimensionality of space depends on the size of the space we’re observing, with smaller spaces associated with fewer dimensions.

That means that a fourth dimension will open up (unfold)— if it hasn’t already — as the universe continues to expand. The theory also suggests that space has fewer dimensions at very high energies of the kind associated with the early, post-big bang universe.

According to Stojkovic, “What we’re proposing here is a shift in paradigm,...Physicists have struggled with the same problems for 10, 20, 30 years, and straight-forward extensions of the existing ideas are unlikely to solve them...We have to take into account the possibility that something is systematically wrong with our ideas,” he continued. “We need something radical and new, and this is something radical and new.”

Loll works on developing a theory of quantum gravity, reconciling the beautiful geometric description of space and time laid out in Einstein's theory of General Relativity with the insight that all of physics at its most fundamental level must be described by quantum laws of motion.

She is one of the pioneers of a new approach to the nonperturbative quantization of gravity, that of Causal Dynamical Triangulations which recently has produced a number of remarkable results. These include a dynamical derivation of the fact that space-time is four-dimensional (something that can be taken for granted only in classical gravity) and that it has the shape of a de Sitter Universe (like our own universe in the absence of matter), and of the so-called wave function of the universe which plays an important role in understanding the quantum behaviour of the very early universe.

Remarkably, the dimensionality of spacetime reduces smoothly to two (2-D) at short distances, indicative of a highly nonclassical behaviour of spacetime geometry near the Planck scale. These results are obtained by superposing elementary quantum excitations of geometry which have a notion of causality ("cause preceding effect") built into them at the very smallest scale.

Interesting in that it is very similar to results from Computer-generated superpositions of causal geometries that show the emergence of an extended quantum groundstate;
 the geometric properties of which provide strong evidence that quantum spacetime indeed behaves macroscopically like a four-dimensional universe.

According to Loll it reveals a fractal structure on slices of constant time, and I posit that due to the 'Law of Similars' (ie, 'as above, so below'), Time itself is more than likely fractal in nature, like other natural phenomena and probably displays the same fractal dimensions as Rivers (see reference to Rivers of Time in 'Is the Sky a Hologram', elsewhere reference to 'tuples', quaternions/octads/octals).

Since all local curvature degrees of freedom of the geometry undergo large quantum fluctuations, a four-dimensional geometry can either crumple up to generate a geometry of an effectively higher dimension (like crumpling up a two-dimensional sheet of paper into a three-dimensional ball), or curl up to give a geometry of an effectively lower dimension (like rolling up a piece of paper into a thin tube, which will appear effectively one-dimensional at a scale much larger than the circumference of the tube). This is exactly what happens in nonperturbative Euclidean quantum gravity. It produces ground states of geometry that are either maximally crumpled with an infinite(!) effective dimension  or polymerized into thin and branched threads, with an effective dimension of two, neither of them promising candidates for the ultimate vacuum.

The main technical tool for constructing a causal nonperturbative path integral is the method of Causal Dynamical Triangulations, a Lorentzian version of dynamical triangulations , in which the new fundamental principle of microcausality is implemented by taking superpositions of only those geometries which have a well-defined causal structure down to the very smallest scales.

And the exciting news is that this idea seems to work!

Computer-generated superpositions of causal geometries show the emergence of an extended quantum ground state.

Recent work which analyzes some of its geometric properties provides strong evidence that this quantum spacetime indeed behaves macroscopically like a four-dimensional universe.

These very encouraging findings imply that an essential aspect of the classical limit, the dimension of spacetime, emerges correctly, a consistency check other approaches to nonperturbative quantum gravity have yet to pass.

This nontrivial result makes the model of causal dynamical triangulations a prime candidate for a theory of quantum gravity, although much work remains to be done to prove that it indeed is the correct theory.

Further research is under way to determine other classical and semiclassical properties of the "reconstructed universe", as well as its true quantum structure.

At large scales, it re-creates the familiar 4-dimensional spacetime, but it shows spacetime to be 2-D near the Planck scale, and reveals a fractal structure on slices of constant time. [ ]

Dendrite growth is imprinted in the Mechanistic world from the 'spin foam' to 'the universe' (i.e, the quantum level to the cosmic scale). (That covers the maxima and minima for The As Above ..So, Too, Below.)

For the medial, or Anthropic applications, there have been several studies to parametrically define and analyze dendritic growth in living cells to determine branching rules, morphological identifiers and the shape of their dendrite spanning fields for anything from fly eye neurons (i.e, lobula plate tangential cells or LPTCs, motion sensitive neurons) and cerebellar Purkinje cells.

A brief review of the literature turned up one article which mentions that some early approaches to describing and reconstructing dendrite branching in general for LPTCs had failed to take into account a major functional constraint governing dendrites: their need to reach specific input locations.

"More recent attempts to constructing dendrite morphology in relation to their function and the location of their inputs had led to dendrite structures of low complexity and accuracy in spite of high computational costs. However, circuitry and connectivity as well as simple wire packing issues are known to be determinants of dendrite morphology.

In addition, the specific organization and architecture of many parts of the brain helps to reduce wiring costs for the (brain/neural network) circuitry. It is therefore not surprising that such constraints can be used to describe dendrite branching in LPTCs and other cells.

Other planar space-filling cells, the cerebellar Purkinje cells, certainly follow a similar rule. However, the suggested approach is not restricted to planar dendrites and future analysis will cover all different neuron arborizations to clarify the ubiquity of the suggested branching rule. At the example of LPTCs, the usefulness of the approach presented here can be put forward: LPTC electrophysiology was studied in great depth (e.g. and precise models, so-called compartmental models, including the detailed anatomical structure were designed and are continuously being improved).

Understanding LPTC branching, these constraints can be directly put in relation with the optic flow processing occurring within their circuitry.

Assuming generality of principles, even the function of cells, which have not yet been reconstructed, can be inferred based on the contours of their dendrites alone. Moreover, the fly is the model animal in which the molecular components that determine neural growth are currently being unveiled, mainly through genetic tools.

Our framework therefore allows a quantitative study of the impact of gene modifications far beyond basic statistics.

In particular, molecular principles guiding neuronal self-avoidance during development and others can now be put in relation with the branching constraints presented here. Eventually, studying molecular factors shaping dendritic spanning fields separately from a specific branching rule within should elucidate a fundamental organizational element in the brain, i.e. the neuron's branching structure.

After 3D skeletonization and sparsening the carrier points, the remaining points were submitted to the same greedy algorithm (started at a user defined dendrite root location) as used for obtaining artificial dendrites Quadratic diameter decay was mapped on the resulting trees."

Similar to Dendrite Growth/Networks found Elsewhere in Nature
Applying this vast body of information from the very large to the very small probably leads to inroads when similar dendrite growth/concepts are applied to developing, say, a monopole magnet?

[Monopole magnets may not exist, but bipolar magnets may be produced/constructed based on the shape of the magnetic field and modeling it such that the 'net effect' is a monopole magnet--much like a monopole antenna is essentially still a dipole antenna, but its net effect is to radiate in only 1/2 the space.]

An analogous case, if one were to model such an 'alien magnet,' would  be a monopole antenna with a perfectly conducting, infinite ground plane  which is identical to the top half of a dipole pattern, with its maximum radiation in the horizontal direction, perpendicular to the antenna.

The 1/4-wave monopole antenna is a single element antenna fed at one end, that behaves as a dipole antenna. It is formed by a conductor in length. It is fed in the lower end, which is near a conductive surface which works as a reflector (see Effect of ground).

The current in the reflected image has the same direction and phase as the current in the real antenna.

The quarter-wave conductor and its image together form a half-wave dipole that radiates only in the upper half of space.

In this upper side of space the emitted field has the same amplitude of the field radiated by a half-wave dipole fed with the same current.

Therefore, the total emitted power is one-half the emitted power of a half-wave dipole fed with the same current.

As the current is the same, the radiation resistance (real part of series impedance) will be one-half of the series impedance of a half-wave dipole.

As the reactive part is also divided by 2, the impedance of a quarter wave antenna is ohms (most likely purely capacitive reactance).

Since the above-ground fields are the same as for the dipole, but only half the power is applied, the gain is twice (3dB over) that for a half-wave dipole ( ), that is 5.14 dBi.

The earth can be used as ground plane, but it is a poor conductor: the reflected antenna image is only clear at glancing angles (far from the antenna).

At these glancing angles, electromagnetic fields and radiation patterns are thus the same as for a half-wave dipole.  Impedance of the earth is far inferior to that of a good conductor ground plane -- this can be improved (at cost) by laying a copper mesh.

Because it radiates only into the space above the ground plane, or half the space
of a dipole antenna, a monopole antenna will have a gain of twice (3 dBi over) the gain of a
similar dipole antenna, and a radiation resistance half that of a dipole.

Thus a quarter-wave monopole antenna, the most common type, will have a gain of 5.19 dBi and a radiation resistance ofabout 36.8 ohms if it is mounted above a good ground plane.
Commercially manufactured ladder line or "window line" (for this metaphor see Talk Like An Egyptian, above) is a type of transmission line similar to twin-lead for balanced connection of antennas.

Ladder line is constructed as a pair of evenly spaced wires with supportive plastic webbing holding the wires apart. The plastic webbing has windows cut in it to reduce its dielectric effect and reduce loss in the transmission line. The alternating webbing and windows gives ladder line its characteristic look and name.

Conceivably, due to similaries in dendrite growth/shape of electric and magnetic fields, and their physical properties already clearly understood through related parameters from the coupling factor (fine structure constant α) to Maxwell's equations (which unify electricity, light, and magnetic radiation), monopolar magnets may be engineered by properly ~weaving~ the magnetic domains to produce a net effect of monopolar mangnetism--an analog (dual/complement) to how monopole antennas radiate radio signals or akin to how metamaterials 'appear' to violate Snell's Law for light.

{Back in the day we used to call this 'reverse engineering' and we didn't need to down alien space craft to do it--it was simply a matter of cracking open some competitors' devices, like RCA InGaAsP transcievers---now I am forced to resort to just pounding out 'crib notes' on A Page... from my kitchen table while I wait for the veggies to parboil.}
