Trix Question


Q:  How many non-Cooper Union Computer Engineers does it take to tune this system?
A:  All of them!
Ah.All, Again...
Q: And how many Cooper Union Computer Engineers do I need?
A: Just one, Hhheenryyyyy!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ahem, St%*#; it's not gonna work if You throw your voice over other people--this morning it was Frank!
So, excuse me for being non-responsive by giving You the Silent Treatment.

Just like yesterday's, 'Are You Blind?'

I heard You project from one corner of the coffee shop on my way out of there.

Here's the answer back in case You are Deaf!

"No, I'm not blind! But I'm not Stupid, either!"

Oh! So, I now hear You callin' me a Genus!

I take it we can both finally move on, now that our short-lived mutual infatuation has worn off, unless You are envisioning some sort of inter-species interactionGenus,  eh?

The modern human species comprises the only extant species of the genus - Homo sapiens; and now that I Am a Genus, (Genus, He Says!), by its very definition, that makes  Me the Alien!

An apt description, ar.  وصف  w.ss.f,  considering what this post is all about.

But all inanity aside, I will now attempt to describe  ( وصف) how information is never lost, only masked (it is preserved in the Zero Point Field).

And it only takes for someone to be well versed in a chosen area of interest to See It for What It Is--should one subscribe to Mr. Bremby's pseudo-randomness philosophy underlying motor vehicle license plates.

An attempt or demonstration on my part to illustrate as much since "He Indicates (Instructs/Demonstrates/Pictures) Using 119."

(BTW, thank You for the g'mmee ("For you," He said), it was so nice to see You the other evening  KIDR1--had we met prior to that occasion?)

Let's Pretend I AM A Quran Maven for the Purposes of This Example!

The possible combinations using the string triad 119, reading left-to-right, without transposing the numbers:

1; 1:1; 1:19.  11; 11:9.  119;

Surah 1 has only 7 Verses and there are only 114 Surahs in the Quran, leaving Chapter 1, Verse 1:1 and Chapter 11,  and Verse 11:9 as viable Surah and Sign substrings.

In the interest of saving Time and Space, I will only parse out the individual Signs and leave the whole Surahs for when I can devote more attention to this speculative realm than that allotted between dinner and bedtime, wield a staff of umpteen many, and have a wee bit more computing power than my MacBookPro can handle.

Surah 1 Al.Fatiha (The Opening Chapter)

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيمِ (1:1   
1:1 In the Name of God, The Gracious, The Merciful.

Surah 11 Hud (The Prophet Hud)
وَلَئِنْ أَذَقْنَا الإِنْسَانَ مِنَّا رَحْمَةً
ثُمَّ نَزَعْنَاهَا مِنْهُ
إِنَّهُ لَيَئُوسٌ كَفُورٌ (11:9  
11:9  And if We Impart to Humanity (Man) a taste (a modicum) of Mercy ( رَحْمَةً  Rahmatan) from Us
and then take it away from them (him);
they (he) abandon(s) all hope (despair)...blaspheme (forget Our Past Favor, revert to infidelity)

Then the possible combinations reading right-to-left, without transposing the numbers:

9;  9:1;  9:11.  91; 91:1.   911.

And, again, since there are only 114 Surahs in the Quran, 911 is not a viable Chapter number, leaving only Surah 9, Verses 9:1 and 9:11; and Chapter 91,  Sign 91:1 as usable substrings in this particular example.

Surah 9 At.Tauba (Repentance)
بَرَاءةٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ
 إِلَى الَّذِينَ عَاهَدتُّم مِّنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ (9:1
 9:1 God and His Messenger Absolve (hold guiltless) those you have made pacts with from among the pagans (idolators, infidels).

فَإِن تَابُواْ وَأَقَامُواْ الصَّلاَةَ وَآتَوُاْ الزَّكَاةَ
 فَإِخْوَانُكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ
 وَنُفَصِّلُ الآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ (9:11
9:11 Should they repent, and gather to pray, and give to charity;
they are your bretheren in Faith.
And We Separate/Segregate/Partition/Adjudicate/Disentangle/Detail/Itemize/Partition/Spell out...نُفَصِّلُ the Signs (Quranic Revelation) to those who understand/can teach/are knowledgeable/for everyone to learn.

Surah 91 Ash.Shams (The Sun)
وَالشَّمْسِ وَضُحَاهَا (91:1
91:1 And the Sun and its Brilliance/sunshine/luster (var. waking, attention (shedding light on something), clarifies, explicates//its victims/sacrifices)

(If the triune was less than or equal to 114, it would be indicative of using that whole Surah to 'inform the field'; and the numbers do not necessarily have to be a triad, they could be quaternary or longer, as long as the string holds up to the numbering conventions in the Quran. For instance, Surah 17 has 111 verses, so a sequence of xxxxx digits could still make sense in this context, since Sign 17:111 exists, there is a Surah 111,  a Verse 11:17, 11:71, and other sensible substrings).

Taking all the above listed substrings for 119 and transposing Chapter:Verse --> Verse:Chapter yields:

1:1;  19:1;  9:11; 1:9; 11:9; and 1:91

The only viable additional substring to the set established so far is 19:1;

Surah 19 Maryam (The Virgin Mary)
كهيعص (19:1
19:1 kaf. ha. ya. 3'ayn. saad.

The series of 5 Muqati3aat,...  ص ع ي ه ك ...(K. H. Y. 3'ayn. Ssaadd)...

Isn't that much better now--so who cares why?  And I am happy to hear You don't care who she is, because You.Know.Who is still asking 'How does she look?'  I think to move things along quicker we should all start agreeing she looks 'good enough,' because just saying, 'beautiful' and 'gorgeous,' doesn't seem to cut it for Him. But, no matter what You all settle on for her looks, I want to be Independently Wealthy!}

Thanks! You heard right--I can be the gorilla in the window and You get to play at Ogee & Take me home--I could use some west and wee wax a shin, at last!

Moving right along...in Arabithmatic terms:

ص  = y

in complex analysis: ع z = rÐj =   ل Ð ي
where:

ي  = φ (an angle)

ه = e (natural log base~2.718...)

ك = r dφ or κ (both the Greek kappa and the Arabic kaf have the same abjid/gematria value==20; so they have equivalence in scientific/arithmetic notation). Another take on what Kaf may mean, in addition to the modern accepted arithmetic usage, is Lam with a Hamza embedded in it: 
laam==ل

kaf==ك

hamza ==ء  which represents the variable d, or just as readily the operation (derivative of  ل dφ );  r dφ

{I hear You. I am sure that You don't intend for me to feel the way I do about hearing you, but I can't help it...BTW, so far the sound checks out great! Can they find better applications for this than making it sound like they are following me around all over town? So, when is the persecution over?}

Back to the quirky math lesson...Just for You! (I know, I know; it's not what you asked for, need or want, but I will give it to You, anyway...How do You like that? So, by the same token, please explain why I keep hearing You say, "Just for you.")


First 
attempt when taking the Bludgeon approach is to make a direct substitution: (I make no representation other than I am guessing at this point & I realized once I got through the problem , I had left out the r in r (cos φ + i sin φ) term, so let's just assume r=1, as in a unit circle).

20~19:1   (e)(φ)  r( cos φ + i sin φ) y

Kaf= κ   is something like     Ha = (e) Ya =(φ) 3ay'n = z SSAAD= y

The Bludgeon Approach: direct substitution:  κ =(e)(φ) r(cos φ + i sin φ) y
assume φ is an angle (in radians) or variable t, the general form; (oops just realized the omission of r in the rÐj term, but rather than rework all this just pretend it's a Unit Circle, r=1)


and alternate form
has roots y= 0;  y =0  or t =0


and the 3D contour graph (mesh) looks like (thanks to wolframalpha.com):

That's right, a Flying Carpet!


Substituting 19:1 in the general form, for the variables in order (phi, or psi or t =19 and y=1):   yields     19 e^(1+i 19)(1)

alternate representation for which:

Note that z= 1, see ع above


...a transcendental number,  with the polar coordinates: 

r = 51.6474, φ = 8.61981 degrees--

what the angle value y = 8.61981 means:

it's an arc length along the Earth's equator of 596 miles (518 nmi, 960 km), 

an arc  length at 45 deg latitude of 422 miles (366 nmi, 679 km)

and correlates to:
~ 0.37 x the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to its orbital plane (~23 deg)
~2.2 x the tilt of the angle of the Leaning Tower of Piza (~ 4 deg)

interesting to note that the numeric value of r = 51.6474 correlates to:

~ 2.2 x  the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to its orbital plane (~23 deg)


____________________________________

By extension this same relationship κ =(e)(φ) r(cos φ + i sin φ) y and
in context with Surahs 13 Ar.Ra3d (Thunder) and 21 Al.Anbiya (Prophets), Verses 13:41 
and 21:44, respectively (the Quran as a Knowledge Object):
أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْاْ أَنَّا نَأْتِي الأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَا 
وَاللّهُ يَحْكُمُ لاَ مُعَقِّبَ لِحُكْمِهِ وَهُوَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ (13:41 
بَلْ مَتَّعْنَا هَؤُلَاء وَآبَاءهُمْ حَتَّى طَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْعُمُرُ 
أَفَلَا يَرَوْنَ أَنَّا نَأْتِي الْأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَا 
أَفَهُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ (21:44 
Both verses refer to shorting/reducing/making a gap or shortage نقُصُ in the 'Earth's' extremities, sides, tips, ends, parts or even parties (referring to folks/communities/people) طرف. 
In this case, the function (e)(φ) r(cos φ + i sin φ) y , shows a conspicuous 'clipping' or reduction of the corners in the imaginary contour plot for this function; a definite pattern that emerged when plugging the values 13, 21 or 19 in for the y term, and on cursory examination, the results seem to point to an apparent threshold at values >=9: 
Such that: 13 (e)(φ) r(cos φ +/- i sin φ), or 19 (e)(φ) r(cos φ +/- i sin φ) or 21(e)(φ) r(cos φ +/- i sin φ) produced these type of 3D contour plots:
Imaginary Contour Mesh f(t) = 21 e t r (cos t + i sin t) from 19:1 Muqati3'at
Corners Reduced Per 13:41 and 21:44
Compare to 'Flying Carpet' Above

Imaginary Contour Mesh f(t) = 13 e t r (cos t - i sin t) from 19:1 Muqati3'at
Reduced or Showing Gap at Extremities (parts, corners) Per 13:41 and 21:44
Compare to 'Flying Carpet' Above
________________________________________

A second approach: 
Assuming the derivative form of κ  as  κ=(e)(φ)r(cos φ + i sin φ) y

For a Unit Circle, the general equation and solution are:


i e.,  k'(φ)) =e(φ) z y == e (φ)(cos φ + i sin φ) y



An ordinary first-order differential equation



the solution for which:

If the radius is not equal to 1 the differential equation  k'(φ) =eφr(e^iφ) *y yields the following general solution:


for simplicity, stick to the unit circle, and keep r =1 st: κ'(φ) = e φ (e ^(iφ))y

then

k(φ) = c1 +[e^(iφ)](e- i*e*φ)y


this function returns a complex solution:


 c1 = k(φ) ,   φ  = -i



and a real solution:



c1 = k(φ) - ye, φ = 0



Interesting, more so, since setting k(φ) = 0, produces a trace c1 reminiscent of the Time Equation, by choosing y carefully:

since c1 = - e^i(φ) [ e - e i φ] y

Is that where the first flying saucers came from?

And I am an unmarried woman, so who, if it's me You are alluding to, am I married to? 
Am I a polygamist without my knowing? If it turns out I am still married to my ex in some reformulated format then i can only assume I am in Hell for all eternity and will keep up the silent treatment because I choose not to acknowledge such injustice in my life And hereafter.

That is not to say that I will not take You up on your proposed 'cover marriage' just so my daughter can get that Father she always wanted to spoil her rotten like the princess she deserves to be--never saw anyone work harder than she since such a young age to impress her dad just to have his behavior make me sign on to the 'all men are a!@#@*%s' philosophy.}

Why it matters concerning what this Blog goes on and on and on about (decipher in context):
Right-Hand Side of the Equation
Definite and Indefinite Integrals
How this is applicable to 19:1: 
The most general interpretation of the series of muqati3'at based on the above:














Since here we are considering curvature the most general interpretation of the right-hand side of the equation may not be a straight multiplication, but makes sense in the context of curve parameters:
ie. x, y , and z (meaning the pitch (as in the case for a helix), or simply a third axis (as is the case for azimuth)):

x (t) = a cos (t)
y (t) = a sin (t)
z(t) = bt

st;

(θ)rcos θ
(θ)=±  rsin θ
z (θ) = eθ, where y may be an actual constant value, like 1 or 19, or substitute the y(θ) from the y coordinate, so that  z1(θ) = e*(±  rsin θ)*θ...

Assuming a right-handed circular helix with radius 1, and pitch 2pi*b = 2pi (ey) and using cylindrical parameters 
[r, θ, h] :
r (θ) = 1
θ (t) = t
h (t) = (et)*t =e(t^2)  which seems appropriate in this case since t^2 is analogous to (sin^2 θ); the square of the sine of an angle, essentially the concept of spread in rational trigonometry, or it may possibly still mean et?)

Several interpretations follow:





Parametric Plots v Unwrapping Curves v Sign 19:1

Ichthus v Solar Geometry and Sign 19:1



Parametric curve of the form x = rcos t,  y = r sin t, and z = e*t* y(t);
Here z(t) = e t sin (t)  the crumpling is mitigated near the Origin, where there is 'no crookedness'  (See Sign 20:108)

Parametric curve, Cylindrical coordinates of the form x = 1,  y = t, and z = e*t;
Here the contour maps show no curvature at all, (See Sign 20:107)
Parametric curve of the form x = 1,  y = t, and z = e*t^2;
Here z(t) = e t^2  the flats and the 'mountains/barrows' depicted int the above alternative parametric curves are now sunken due to the emergent parabolilc function z= et^2, or 'bottoming' at the Origin,  (See Sign 20:105)

Generalized Gas Compressibility Chart
Note: Isotherm at 20% Compressibility

The Generalized Gas Compressibility Chart above is an example of a generalized compressibility factor graph derived from hundreds of experimental PVT data points of 10 pure gases, namely methane, ethane, ethylene, propane, n-butane, i-pentane, n-hexane, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and steam. Note behavior at z=20% (compressibility factor at a reduced pressure ~1 and that these gases are associated with oil well lighters) and gases used to develop the isotherms which model near ideal gas behavior and what is in a can of one particular air freshener

A less harsh, read less harmful approach, would be to use a benign real world model on deteriorated brains rather than such a toxic exposure to healthy brains.

{Addendum: Dec. 4, 2012, so I am to have a sense or get a feel  حس  for 3:79 and 37:9, just in case I missed it. 
Surah3 Al.3'mran 
مَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُؤْتِيَهُ اللّهُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحُكْمَ وَالنُّبُوَّة 
ثُمَّ يَقُولَ لِلنَّاسِ كُونُواْ عِبَادًا لِّي مِن دُونِ اللّهِ 
وَلَـكِن كُونُواْ رَبَّانِيِّينَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تُعَلِّمُونَ الْكِتَابَ 
وَبِمَا كُنتُمْ تَدْرُسُونَ (3:79  
 3:79 It's not likely (apt, possible) that a person whom God has Granted Scripture and Wisdom and the Prophethood that he should afterwards say to people, 'Serve me instead of god.' But (what he said was), "Be faithful servants of the Lord by virtue of your constant teaching of the Scripture and of your constant study thereof."
And from 
Surah 37 As.Saffat (Rangers)
إِنَّا زَيَّنَّا السَّمَاء الدُّنْيَا بِزِينَةٍ الْكَوَاكِبِ (37:6)

I don't have to defend myself here, I already covered this almost at the inception. I never took any of this lightly, and the tragedy of it is that I know I wasn't invited to the dance, and I didn't want to come along, either.  
That's why what they did is harram, and I took every measure I could to prevent it from reoccurring--to me or any one else. 
I take it my recently sampling this first hand is just to be sure, but I never contested it and hopefully this hazing will let up as quickly as it set in. I don't believe I am such a titan, but the only rebellion You'll see in me is if I am forced to wake up to that a!@#@*%s--One time through that shi1112 is enough.

What makes me so special?

I find myself asking myself the very same question.

But my Mother answers me so I don't sound so crazy..."You know, dear, they didn't want a 'virgin', they wanted to read this version--you always had a problem with your annunciation!"

(She thinks it's part and parcel with my poor spelling).

 Here's one example:

Surah 55 Al.Rahman
مُدْهَامَّتَانِ (55:64 
Nearly all accepted translations take this to mean:
55:64 (Gardens, from the context) 'dark green' (in color or of foliage)

And this is my understanding of the same verse Sign 55:64 based on my 'annunciation' (that's right, that would make me a lousy Catholic, too!)

55:64 Its Range Extensive (the maximal range, enduring/endurance interval/or gap...)

Then use Sign 55:64 as angles or velocity/angle or some such combination to maximize the Range! That's if we're talking projectiles (or mystery of alpha).

The Lion Ring

Roaring Lion
Bronze Statue
...it's a matter of Pride.

Lion Ring Seal With Imprint


Note: perspective is off, since She is no Artist

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

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, et.al.


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

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 wolframalpha.com/(keyword 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. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Causal_dynamical_triangulation ]

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.
