Someone Started A Rumor

What is it about Americans that the 2 most often repeated phrases are "I'm sorry," and, "I love you."
Do you know what that sounds like to an alien?
It sounds like this; "I'm sorry I love you!"

And the alien can merely respond by saying, "My condolences, I understand your WIFE is a Muslim."
SomeOne searching 'been let down quotes' and 'you let me down' from unknown.unknown isp, then all traces of it vanished (and, howdie-do to our mangled-wire computer cousins at the US Army Signal Corp).
Not because there is any reason to suspect that being the case, but more than likely because someone started a rumor...that's why?
And it wasn't me. Nope, despite what anyone says I don't think I'm too good for You.
And if the let down has anything to do with my performance to demostrate my range, it was a training exercise-- putting a young-sounding voice to good use; and if my faulty memory serves, it culminated in the biggest bust of a worldwide child trafficking ring a few years later.

The phone records and chatroom snipe are probably still on your desk if not your top file drawer (and it was my cousin, Joey?, pointing me out to You in the middle of that unpartitioned office area, going through my paces on that particular afternoon--so, if I thought there was anything to hide I would not have been doing such a great job in a wide open common work area--with me being the only female in a 'bullpen' shared with 7 other male engineers, that's why it was called the 'bullpen').

And if You want to act like You don't know exactly what it is I am talking about then You deserve a bigger Oscar than the one I should get for my following Your 'I need you to go on sinning and grinning' acting direction from You Know Who?--You!

There really is no reason for me to live under such uncomfortable conditions, but seeing as how I don't even get what I work for and earn, I figure it highly unlikely that I can get what I simply ask for--not because I need any more lessons, but because I know there are more Powers at play than what those around me perceive.

For example, I have known that I am on the federal? payroll in some capacity as a government Annalist/Analyst since at least as far back as 2007 (maybe 2006) but I have yet to see a single penny of it--whatsamatter, having a little trouble making sense of the cumulative time?

See? I warned You--can't afford me?

Times like these I wonder why our family can't have our piano recitals in concert halls, like other families. (I know, it wouldn't be fair when Gabriel has more talent in His left nostril than the entire population that ever was or is or will walk the Earth, combined).

"I sometimes think we must be all mad and that we shall wake to sanity in strait-waistcoats."--BRAM STOKER, Dracula

In an ideal world (Heaven) I should be compensated for exposing my (hare) brain for Your consideration on at least the same par as world class models get for exposing their...their...their wookies (ie., other admirable/bankable hairy parts on earth).

Surah 60 Al.Mumtahhineh (The Examined One, Those Tested)
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا
 إِذَا جَاءكُمُ الْمُؤْمِنَاتُ مُهَاجِرَاتٍ فَامْتَحِنُوهُنَّ 
اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِإِيمَانِهِنَّ فَإِنْ عَلِمْتُمُوهُنَّ مُؤْمِنَاتٍ
 فَلَا تَرْجِعُوهُنَّ إِلَى الْكُفَّارِ لَا هُنَّ حِلٌّ لَّهُمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحِلُّونَ لَهُنَّ
 وَآتُوهُم مَّا أَنفَقُوا وَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ أَن تَنكِحُوهُنَّ إِذَا آتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ
وَلَا تُمْسِكُوا بِعِصَمِ الْكَوَافِرِ وَاسْأَلُوا مَا أَنفَقْتُمْ وَلْيَسْأَلُوا مَا أَنفَقُوا
 ذَلِكُمْ حُكْمُ اللَّهِ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ  (60:10

 60:10 All You Believers (Faithful)! When believing women come to you as fugitives, examine (test) them. God Knows what's between them (among them). Then, if you ascertain them to be  believers (faithful), do not send them back to the disbelievers (infidels). They are no longer lawful to the disbelievers (unfaithful), nor are the disbelievers lawful for them (any longer). And give them whatever they may have spent. And it is not a sin for you to marry such women when you have given them first what they have earned. And do not keep (hold onto) defending disbelieving women; nor ask for (the return of) what you have spent (on them); and let the disbelievers ask for what they have spent (the are entitled to what they have spent). That is God's Judgment. God Judges between you. And God is Aware (Knowing), Wise.

But, fair is fair, and my Father predicted that I won't fall for that little beauty trick either (Really, I overheard Him on my way out the sports club telling someone He has every confidence I can pass that test, too!--I don't recall Him laying any odds on it, though.)

Check it out...Testing, Testing...
Surah 18 The Cave
إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا مَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ زِينَةً لَّهَا لِنَبْلُوَهُمْ أَيُّهُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا 18:7
18:7 Indeed, We Created everything  of Beauty on Earth to Test people as to which of them is Best in Conduct

( I passed this Test with flying colors, especially the night of Jan 13, 2012, when a drop dead gorgeous blond was openly flirting with me as I worked deligently on a business letter that was to be only 'a couple of paragraphs' and turned out to be 1600 words.
Don't get me wrong, I was flattered to no end--especially since the last time that happened I was 16 years old---now that I'm a semi-centurian, her attentions didn't quite ring so True.
Besides, that's a no-go for me, seeing as how I stated my position about Women earlier and found it to be much in keeping with WC Fields' feelings about Elephants.
Moreover, if they also happen to be anywhere nearly pretty enough for me to sense any kind of familial connection, then nothin' doin' --sis, 'cuz, G-Aunt, hoaxter!--And the real Killer to this non-starter Test is, I've openly stated where my true passions rest.)

Surah 20 Ta-Ha (Can You Hear Me?  'طه')
وَلَا تَمُدَّنَّ عَيْنَيْكَ إِلَى مَا مَتَّعْنَا بِهِ أَزْوَاجًا مِّنْهُمْ زَهْرَةَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنيَا لِنَفْتِنَهُمْ فِيهِ وَرِزْقُ رَبِّكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى 20:131
20:131 And don't strain your eyes in longing for the splendour of the life of this world, things We have given for enjoyment to matched pairs (married couples) of them through which We Test them: but the Provision of your Lord is Better and More Enduring

(Another gimmee---what splendour are we referring to exactly? Hauling his laundry hamper up and down 2 flights of stairs while carrying his baby full term because he's too special to help with it or that he never reciprocated any of the good she's ever done for him or the support she freely gave him because he somehow finds it acceptable to abuse the 'now found to be mentally ill for saying she suffered a chronic toxic exposure from working in a sick building for umpteen frickin years?" and threatening to never let her see her children again if she so much as flinched at the despotism of living under his rule now that he would never allow for a divorce and use emotional blackmail to keep her in check---yeah, if I was God and ran this kind of test on someone, I would ...deleted for seeming contemptuous).

Surah 23 The Believers (Faithful)
وَلَقَدْ أَخَذْنَاهُم بِالْعَذَابِ فَمَا اسْتَكَانُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَمَا يَتَضَرَّعُونَ 23:76
23:76 And We Tested them through suffer­ing/trials, but they did not humble themselves before their Lord; nor did they ever pray (entreat/plead with Him)

(For this one, I get a Gold Star. You wanna know why? I actually saw and heard the Witnesses offer to give You a front row seat to see Me Down On My Knees; apparently, I was doing it quite a bit for some number of years that You could catch that show with some regularity--I only stopped when I got the signal that it was pointless beyond a certain threshold, see 15:98-15:99 below.)

Surah 29 The Spider
أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوا أَن يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ (29:2)
وَلَقَدْ فَتَنَّا الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ فَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا وَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ الْكَاذِبِينَ (29:3)
29:2 Do people think that they will be left (at ease simply) because they say, 'We believe', and that they will not be Tested with hardships?

(Nope, never thought that for a twinkle, but I Never thought it would drag on forever, either, because beyond the first 5 Earth Years, that, too, became pointless!
I am not doing the waking up in a hospital bed Men In Black thing, and I am not doing the Groundhog's Day thing, and I am not waking up to any walk throughs of any other scenes from any movie that was ever made or screenplay that was so much as even accepted on spec, okay--that's it! I've Had it- I had it when I called Him a RedHead and He corrected me to say that Tawny is in fact the more accurate description of the color (LIKE a LION)).

Surah 44 Smoke
وَآتَيْنَاهُم مِّنَ الْآيَاتِ مَا فِيهِ بَلَاء مُّبِينٌ 44:33
44:33 ..and We gave them such Signs as would clearly presage a Test 

(I got the Signs, all right *alright, to the effect that I started a diary, and a blog to preserve them for all posterity & what could be a Bigger Better Betoken than THE Michael Himself announcing His Presence- that was not a Sign to Presage a Test in 1992, that was like AN ANNOUNCEMENT, but I still wonder, why Me? ---there are definitely prettier, smarter, richer, taller, thinner, more powerful people--and we still have a President to the United States, or do we? And of course, those who drive nicer cars.
What? Did the world run out of virgins?
I'd already had a kid or 2; now I hear I have over 100--not bad for a woman whose own husband hasn't so much as dated her since their 7th anniversary.
Can you even imagine what that can do to a woman's self image? Let alone, anyone's ego---psshhaw, nothing!
I keep pretty busy and I still prefer being a female to being a male; if not for the fact that we don't sweat as much, than for the mere frilly lingerie incentive alone.)

Surah 72 Jinn
وَأَلَّوِ اسْتَقَامُوا عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ لَأَسْقَيْنَاهُم مَّاء غَدَقًا  72:16   
لِنَفْتِنَهُمْ فِيهِ وَمَن يُعْرِضْ عَن ذِكْرِ رَبِّهِ يَسْلُكْهُ عَذَابًا صَعَدًا 72:17
72:16 ...had they but tread firmly on the right path, We would have showered them with Abundance
72:17 As a Test to determine which of them would turn away from their Lord; He will thrust such (as turn away) into ever increasing torment.

(This one leaves me in a Quandary.
I tread the path, as right as it could be in the mind of a neophyte.
If we were talking averages, like engineers are wont to do, I'd say better than the average of what I saw going on around me (note, better than average, not better than everything and everyone---averages are more meaningful when we are taking a populatoin of 7 billion, because any 1 Event (Person/Thing) in and of itself may be considered as a statistical OUTLIER!
Yet, y, y, y the increasing torment?--I passed all of the above tests, and not only did I submit/surrender/give up without prompting the first time, but I tried to do it again a few weeks ago--You may remember, I even waited in the cold night air for SOMEone to haul themselves in for me to SUrrender to, and they Flaked, giving me to understand that my Unconditional Surrender is not accepted under any terms---I must have really ticked someOne off.
I now consider that my major life achievement---now, if I could only figure out Who that SomeOne is/was and where they're hiding.)

And if the disappointment stems from my having stopped praying, it's only due to this little love note:
15:98-15:99 ...pray until ....Can You guess how I interpret 'certainty'? ...
What is there left to say?

That this is how much injustice has to be tipped against me in order that they keep breeding and breathing?

... Want another demonstration?
Sasha, tell us what book you're reading at breakfast table and your sister can share her plans for running for office?

الْيَوْمَ نَخْتِمُ عَلَى أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَتُكَلِّمُنَا أَيْدِيهِمْ وَتَشْهَدُ أَرْجُلُهُمْ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ
This Day We Shall Set a Seal on their mouths
but they will speak to Us with their hands,
 and their feet shall bear witness to whatever they earned in Life.
My hands r not tied, I'm free

It's not that I can't, I won't

I am not poor, just broke(n).

My G-Aunt keeps wanting to chime in with, "You know, Dear, the boys keep saying it's a sin to talk about it; but, just between us girls, headaches are a lot sexier on the Men."

I hear Him Say, 'Some fisherman you turned out to be when your net comes up empty time and again'.

I am more a 'catch and release' kind of fisherman...or some such 'sort' of thing.

And as for opting to pursue some 'weird dream' rather than to open my eyes to what's going on around me, I don't think I am as blind as some would like to believe. My 'weird dreams' manifest in physical space and time.

Take for example the image on the right--not a metaphor, but an event:
Location: ~ 34.07573, -118.38503  (~ 34° 4' 30.965" N     -118° 22' 51.363" W )
Orientation:  SSW? (same as that of the Roman reception desk)
Date: May 17, 1997
Time: 6 - 7 pm

UFO and Related Sightings Surrounding 'the event':

On April 25, 1997, the night more than 30 UFOs were seen over New Brighton, Minnesota, just north of the "Twin Cities" of  Minneapolis and St. Paul a sky watcher observed 3 UFOs in the same binocular field.

Over a course of several months… avid sky watchers have observed extremely high moving objects which traverse the sky in a few minutes…they appear solid, self-illuminated and round. These objects…named 'High Movers'...are moving in a N-to-S or S-to-N direction, with slight east and west variations… not consistent with satellites.

"Now, here is what is interesting,” an observer said, "all but two (of 7 he saw)  were moving to the northwest, towards Minnesota!... one moving to the northwest about 9:45 p.m… just as it was about to drop below the horizon… another moving near it, more to the east.. was amazed to have two in my field of vision at the same time, since viewing through binoculars greatly restricts the field of vision. A third High Mover (UFO) streaked past both of them.. I've never seen three in the sky at once...much less in the same binocular field of view."


On Monday night, May 12, 1997, a Colorado pilot was flying near Walsenburg (population 3,945) when he picked up a strange call on his radio.

"I was flying in clear VUCU sky (VUCU stands for "visibility unlimited, ceiling unlimited") when I picked up a weak communication on VoiceCom 121.5,  the common-use emergency channel… always monitored by commercial and most large private aircraft with more than one communications radio,” the pilot reported.

"As well as I could, I was able to make out someone at Flight Level One-Two-Three-Five Hundred (123,500 feet or 37,424 meters--J.T.) requesting 'immediate traffic in area.' There was obvious anxiousness in his voice, and he was talking to Air Traffic Control," he added, "The only thing I know that can travel at this altitude is the SR-71 Blackbird. Now it is not uncommon to see high-flying aircraft in this (San Luis) valley, but this guy is calling, in what must have surely seemed like some desperation, on the unsecured 121.5 emergency channel."

"I have two wonderings--was the SR-71 on recon? For what? And why was he so concerned with traffic at an altitude that few pilots have ever been at?"

 (Editor's Comment: The pilot might use the civilian emergency channel if the military frequencies were being jammed. Then again, it might be someone playing with a shortwave radio.)

On Wednesday, May 14, 1997, around 4 pm, at the Intersection of Bundy Avenue at Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. (See Journal Entry for May 14, 1997 at 17:00)


On Thursday, May 15, 1997, at 12:07 a.m… a few hundred yards from Interstate Highway 80.

…a black equilateral triangular object about the size of a half-dollar held at arm's length, moving swiftly to the east-northeast about five degrees north of directly overhead..."It had three lights, one at each of the vertices. These were orange-yellow and appeared as bright as fourth magnitude stars. Each light appeared to be divided into two hemispheres along the axis of motion. The object was moving in the direction of one of the vertices at a high rate of speed. The duration of my sighting was about 4 seconds."

… it passed overhead… It produced no noise except perhaps the faint sound of rushing air… the nearness of the (Interstate 80) freeway makes that impression unreliable.

Twenty hours later…at approximately 10:43 p.m…made visual contact with a UFO.

… a group of lights, perhaps eight or nine clustered near the front edge of a black triangular object with angles of about 120 degrees, 35 degrees and 25 degrees." …. "The object was traveling NE at a high speed with the largest angle in the front and the smallest angle to the NW. … it was about as large as a half-dollar held at arm's length..It passed directly overhead and made no noise, … observed this object for about 6-7 seconds. Its lights were also about fourth magnitude and looked like eyes--almond-shaped with a dark center…It should be mentioned (that) the first object was moving along a flight path out of SFO (San Francisco International Airport) used by passenger craft at high altitude.”


On Thursday, May 15, 1997, two hours before a "mysterious explosion" rocked southern Ohio and northern Kentucky, a similar blast was experienced in the city of St. Joseph, Missouri (population 76,691), located 54 miles (87 kilometers) north of Kansas City.

A spokeswoman for Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska, said the blast was "probably a sonic boom caused by an aircraft breaking the sound barrier…that the boom might have been caused by an SR-71 flying from Beale Air Force Base in California to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

Another spokesman for USAF, said "the aircraft would have been in NW Missouri about 2:30 or 3 p.m. on that afternoon.”

On Saturday, May 17, 1997…at 10 p.m… two black helicopters in close formation, no sound, no exhaust, and no flashing lights--just a steady white light flew very close to the ground, from the SE to the NW  (Kings Canyon Road to Herndon Avenue-J.T.).

“ Definitely looked like helicopters--but very Stealth-like…they had a wide fuselage, no visible (tail) rotor, could not see underbelly--no visible landing gear. No noise of any type. No exhaust. Both were in tight formation, with one just in front of the other. The one in the rear seemed to be on the right-hand side of the one in the lead.”

On Tuesday, May 20, 1997…the city's ABC-TV affiliate, aired a 15-minute segment on UFOs…showing "a round glowing object."…(prior to the program airing) city residents had been puzzled by reports of black helicopters on patrol over McKinley, Belmont and Olive Avenues, just north of Chandler Airport.

 (Editor's Comment: From the description, the aircraft resemble the new Eurocopter NH-90. But, according to Aviation Week and Space Technology for May 27, 1997, there are only a few prototypes of the NH-90, and all are in Europe. The first NH-90s not expected to be out of production until 2002.)


On Sunday, May 18, 1997, at about 6:30 p.m., a handful of people …at the intersection of Pennsylvania Route 443 and Appleby Road, near Linglestown, Pennsylvania (Pa.) were startled by the appearance of a "flying triangle."

…the UFO was "to the north directly over Route 81.. was …a triangle UFOappearing to be six inches across.

…as to how high the UFO flew… it "was real low" and "moved slowly W."

… "The triangle flew overhead, moving in a WNW direction. The lights gave the appearance of protruding from the actual craft.

… lost sight of the UFO when it dropped toward forest-covered Second Mountain. The sighting took place in a rural section of Linglestown, about seven miles (11 kilometers) north of Harrisburg, the state capital of Pennsylvania.” -- Copyright 1996 - 2012 UFOINFO Editor: Joseph Trainor


Is The Sky A Hologram?

Melancholia by Albrecht Durer
Who Wants To Know?

Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears A Who

Truncated Octahedron
Not Quite the Melancholia Truncated Solid In the Image Above
Schreiber (1999) identifies it(the Melancholy Octahedron) as a cube, first distorted to give rhombus faces with angles of 108° and then truncated so that its vertices lie on a sphere.
More on That Later...

here it is , later (wikipedia)

DimensionsMutually orthogonal golden rectangles drawn into the original icosahedron (before cut off)

If the edge length of a truncated icosahedron is a, the radius of a circumscribed sphere (one that touches the truncated icosahedron at all vertices) is:
r_u = \frac{a}{2} \sqrt{1 + 9\varphi^2} = \frac{a}{4} \sqrt{58 +18\sqrt{5}} \approx 2.47801866a
where φ is the golden ratio.
The dual polyhedron of an icosahedron with unit edge lengths is the dodecahedron with edge lengths 1/ φ, where  φ is the golden ratio.
Icosahedral Graph
The centers of the faces of an icosahedron form a dodecahedron, and vice versa.
There are 43,380 distinct nets for the icosahedron, the same number as for the dodecahedron (Bouzette and Vandamme, Hippenmeyer 1979, Buekenhout and Parker 1998).
This result is easy to get by using one of the three orthogonal golden rectangles drawn into the original icosahedron (before cut off) as the starting point for our considerations. 
The angle between the segments joining the center and the vertices connected by shared edge (calculated on the basis of this construction) is approx. 23.281446° (about the tilt of the Earth's axis to its orbital plane (.993 x 23.45))
Area and volume: 
The area A and the volume V of the truncated icosahedron of edge length a are:
A & = \left ( 20 \cdot \frac32\sqrt{3} + 12 \cdot \frac54\sqrt{ 1 + 2/\sqrt{5}} \right ) a^2 \approx 72.607253a^2 \\
V & = \frac{1}{4} (125+43\sqrt{5}) a^3 \approx 55.2877308a^3. \\
Geometric relations: 
The truncated icosahedron easily verifies the Euler characteristic
32 + 60 − 90 = 2. 
With unit edges, the surface area is (rounded) 21 for the pentagons and 52 for the hexagons, together 73 (see areas of regular polygons). 


The frequency of the word 'Sky' or 'Skies', sometimes understood to mean 'Heaven'/'Heavens' is 123 times in 117 Signs. They are tabulated below with comments included for the first 19 occurrences.

{As an aside, Wow! I mean, WOW!! You fellas look more and more gorgeous--yet, somehow incredibly destitute. What gives? You lose your luggage & wallets & rich girlfriends on the way in? --16.07.2011 Sources tell me that it's nowhere near as interesting as that and that it's probably something like Roulette, Craps, or 21. Sources say it is only fair to mention that they had to tip me off because I really Am that clueless, but so is ewes guys because you don't realize that U.F.know.whO is a rare breed of gambler--He actually Likes Losing to the House! That way they send the car around.

If it's any consolation, I am just as broke and nowhere near as good looking, but I have access to a bathroom and a washer/dryer for which I endure a tremendous amount of disrespect bordering on abuse just to continue using them until You all feel that I have been punished enough for something someOne has yet to tell me what exactly it is I did to warrant 'earning' this kind of mega-havoc in my so-called Life--somebody please tell me. Telling my Father gets you nowhere, because all He'll say is 'She must have had a Good Reason!"}

There are several concepts worth developing when plumbing for the exact nature of the Sky as described in the first 19 references to it in the Quran. In 2:19 we get storms from the Sky--metaphorically, the Sky is a source of stormclouds which represent a steady, plentiful outpouring of gloominess, tyranny, and injustice.

In 2:22 the Sky is described as a 'canopy' but the precise meaning of the word bina' is associated with construction, building, masonary, and the masons themselves. That rainwater or simply water (Ma') descends from the Sky is mentioned, the concept of Ma having been developed elsewhere in Apageinthelife, including but not limited to 'negative space' and physical parameters such as mass*acceleration.

{It is noteworthy that the Japanese concept Ma for 'negative space' or 'interval,' 'gap' is expressed using the Chinese character (間) which is pronounced 'djin'. There is no mistaking that the word in Arabic for 'the unseen' or basically 'dark matter', 'things imperceptible with our human faculties' جِنَّ Jinn both sounds the same and has closely associated meanings as the Oriental variants.}

The manner of having designed the Sky as 7 (multiple) 'heavens' is suggested in 2:29 and the word 'sawa' is elaborated elsewhere (Smoke 41:11) as to how God 'corresponds' or 'levels' with the Sky. The terms 'squares', 'equalizes', 'normalizes', 'compounds,' 'patches,' 'flattens', and such, in addition to being mathematical operations, are also steps involving actual 'workmaship'. The understanding is that God literally 'fashions' or 'makes' the Sky that we perceive over our heads. The number 7 may be the actual count of how many eschelons of Sky there are, but idiomatically it means 'a multiple of things' or ' unspecified number' {I miss Capt. Bennett (& not with a weapon like You did me the other day) as much as Tommy (who can ever forget the fella who bought them their first pair of steel-toe workboots?) as much as gimpy U-Boat Al (technically not a Nazi, since he was underwater the whole time, who warned me time and again 'never let them see you cry,' or what Al-- huh, what?}.In 2:59 it is mentioned that from the Sky is revealed as well as sent or manifested God's Wrath on those who have incurred it, where 'wrath' is also understood to mean 'plague', and not necessarily always a disease, but any type of punishment that is in direct consequence to and the same kind as the transgressors' own 'debauchery' (there is no contradiction in the Sky being both a source of blessings and punishment, the understanding is that it provides a reciprocation, alluded to in how the Sky Echoes or Reverberates or provides the feedback for what People do on Earth).

Chapter 2, Verse 144, Word Number 6 is the 7th occurrence mentioning the Sky, turning the Prophet's Qibla direction 'to one that would please him'. The Qibla marks the direction of prayer, but also connotes 'kissing,' 'osculation,' that while alluding to things of an intimate nature also have to do with planar curves (discussion about curvature and osculating circles mentioned in the post 'If It Walks Like A Duck...'). {Is this where the phrase 'at six's and seven's' comes from? Does it mean being torn between making an emotional vs. cerebral decision? --other than that there is nice math symmetry in 2:144:6}.

And if You are into math, and symmetry, (2:164:3) al-samawati , (2:164:21) l-samāi, (2:164:39) l-samāi, offer all that in a neat package, including the 'mechanism' that is the Sky. Sign 2:164 offers not 1, or 2, but 3--count them 3, mentions of the Sky at word locations 3, 21, and 39 in the verse. At position 3, the Skies are mentioned as a Sign of God having Created them (Creates them); at position 21 Ma' comes from the Sky to Revive the Earth and is responsible for sustaining everything on it, including the streaming winds and the clouds that are 'harnassed' (الْمُسَخِّرِ musaghara) between the earth and the Sky (mentioned at position 39). The word for harnassed also has to do with 'gears' and we understand gears to trasmit motion from one body to another as in toothed gears, they serve to 'engage' an activity/equipment like when putting something into gear, and gears also transmit power and/or direction (like in a vehicle transmission)--a term closely related to equipment and machines.

Sign 3:5:11 marks the location of the word Sky as the 11th and last word in this Verse which reminds us that nothing can be kept secret/veiled/incognito/surreptitious from God, whether it be in Heaven or on Earth. At which point, I pause to Reflect, like any sentient being and ask myself, "Self," I said, "what vantage point affords such a global perspective of such a large scale object as the Universe when I, myself, am merely a spec on its surface, 'not even a drop of rain in an endless ocean'?"

For me, crazy me, I see 3:5 and wax poetic about the Fibonacci sequence, the 11th term for someone else to calculate; and The Golden Section, Phi, 1.618--the shorter is to the longer as the longer is to the whole 3:5 : : 5:8.

As a set, [3, 5, 11] are markers for 'squaring the circle'--given a square with side 11, and right triangle inscribed with one leg=3, and hypotenuse=5 (some believe inscribing such circles approximates the size of the Earth to the Moon). As a vector, well, just look up in the Sky... According to Verse 4:153 the People of prior Revelation (People of Scripture, People of the Book) asked Muhammedpbuh for a Book from the Sky, well, it seems they got one, has anyone bothered reading it?

Chapter 5, Al-Ma'ida, mentions the Disciples having asked Jesus for 'a table from Heaven' (earlier post at Table, Tablet, Fields and Grains ). That God Send it down to them so that it would be an ever recurring feast/celebration for the first and last of us (Signs 5:112 and 5:114, specifically).

Ma'ida مَآئِدَةً can mean table (board, bench) and can be used to mean a repast/supper. Given that they were all gainfully employed and not in want of food, the question remained, 'what exactly were they asking for when they asked that God Send/Reveal a Table from the Sky if they were not asking for supper?'

A table can mean all of the following (aramaic root): a schedule, a lead, a guidance, something of benefit, a jump-start, a fresh start/start anew/spring; the root 'med' means 'extend'.

With all that in mind, what the Disciples were asking of Jesus is to ask God to Provide an 'extension', or 'spread', something that would 'expand', 'reinforce', 'stretch', 'impact', 'increase'; an idiom for 'work at full power'; the verb form means: to 'provide', 'furnish', 'lengthen', 'distend', 'dilate', 'supply', 'protract', and finally to offer a 'respite'.

Any one of these 'table' connotations would make more sense in context since they would be more likely to be of benefit (especially if it would furnish something like an agenda for new concepts, a new beginning, a re-awakening) to those who follow (later generations) compared to simply consuming a meal.

And the request was that this 'tabular' Revelation be repeated and not just handed down once, so that later generations may benefit from it, and that it be a cause for celebration (Recall Abraham having asked God for the Message to be Verified/Renewed for later generations in 'A Wave of Oblivious People', so not exactly 'The Last Supper'--I predict more bad cooking on the horizon--either that or a live-in master chef).

The word for celebration is '3eid' the root derives from '3d' which has to do with counting, repetition. A cause for celebration/ festival/holiday is typically associated with happy occassions, frequented by large crowds of people, kept solemn, well-attended/famous; it is interesting that a colloquialism in some parts of England for attendants to such large happy gatherings are known as 'ants'//emmett=="holiday tourist".

Considering the passage about Solomon and what He over hears one Ant say to another in 27:18 when He and His forces approach the Valley of the Ants (Naml)--does that mean Solomon made it all the way to Cornwall, England, or were 'We' just messing with the English on this one? {Having read over that particular post, it may be worth defining what it means to be a Jew, or Jewish, since one was given for what it is to be a Christian; Jewish is a Job, not some sort of couture DNA or birthright, the job description being 'To Preserve Holy Scripture' (as in keep it sacrosanct, not just keep it to yourself or solely for your own benefit). According to that definition, I only know of 1 (apparently the job doesn't pay well), but I don't get out much and the real Jews are probably hiding like thrips for fear of what the Poser Jews might do to them if they find them (ahh, the quiet, protracted respite of missing mass.}

Ayeh 6:6 from Surah Al-An'am (Cattle) is fascinating in its description of the Sky for at least 2 reasons. The first is that nothing is being Sent/Revealed or made to come down from the Sky, but it is the Sky itself that is being Revealed/Sent , وَأَرْسَلْنَا السَّمَاء عَلَيْهِم مِّدْرَارًا, wa arsalna al.Sama' 3liyhim mdraran, means 'and We Sent/Revealed the Sky to them/over them/generating a wheel/director/pouring out.' The second reason is the word mdraran, that can mean pouring, outpouring, has as a root 'mmdr' which means 'director' or 'something that goes around' or 'a wheel.'

Typically, Sign 6:6 is translated to mean an abundant shower of rain is coming from the Sky to make the rivers run, but if understood without injecting the word 'from,' which is not there to begin with, makes it clear that the Sky over our heads is itself some type of 'director', 'wheel', 'revolving' in order to make the Rivers run 'anhar' الأَنْهَارَ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهِمْ underneath them in a manner which exhausted them from their own sins and thereby caused later generations to replace them.

Clearly, these are not the types of Rivers we understand to flow for irregation and to go fish, so the implication is that these are Rivers of Time since 'inhar' can be taken to mean 'days' or 'mornings' flowing by, and 'under their feet' means that those being punished grew old/tired/exhausted by it (the Sky turning) without realizing it was a consequence to their own bad behaviour (thinking it nothing of value, right under their feet, beneath them). Or, in such a conspicuous/obvious manner 'they're tripping over it' and yet somehow remain oblivious to what's going on. (I think now they're saying I have a 'medical condition'--great!, who gave it to me?--because I certainly wasn't born this way! I never heard of a medical condition that makes my 'team' members go berserker over it and do a very convincing job of 'staging' (I have to believe it was just staged, no matter how believable) their own deaths just to free up the reins and go take care of 'business'--they're even calling me 'the cosa nostra'-- and all I think I Am is Where those that did this to me are Not--everytime I see one of them or even hear their names so much as mentioned I get ill beyond description.)

This is probably a better understanding of 6:6 especially since in 6:66 the indication is 'and yet, to all this your peoples have given the lie, although it is the Truth. Say : "I am not responsible for your conduct.' {These people who poisoned me and each others' children are 'my people' ? What is Your return policy?! What's it for Spaceships which You have commandeered (see, my not wanting anything to do with these peoples (Ikhlas), I was outbound when You ran interference)? This is a fitting place for a lecture on Mercy}.

The 'director' aspect of the Sky in Sign 6:6 is that it serves to guide/give direction, as evidenced by earlier civilizations' realiance on it (preserved in everything from pyramids to cave paintings), but for my single-minded pursuit I think it has to do with a Sky Movie.

Sign 6:35 Indeed their spurning you distresses you, yet if you could create/seek a tunnel in the ground/earth or a ladder to/in the sky and bring them a sign,- If it were God's Will, He could gather them all together to true guidance: so do not be as those who are childish (ignorant/impatient)!
(Lemmesee 2011-1996= 15 years by their estimation; considering actual time and not just from the time of discovery, 2011-1992= 19 years--still not patient enough for Ya?)

"فَإِنِ اسْتَطَعْتَ أَن تَبْتَغِيَ نَفَقًا فِي الأَرْضِ أَوْ سُلَّمًا فِي السَّمَاء " means "seeking to tunnel" through the earth or "ladder to/in the sky" in order to fetch a sign", where the term 'sillam' means "ladder" ==lean, slope, heirarchical arrangement based on rank/ability, also from 'climax' ; usually it is transportable and comprised of rungs/steps at increasingly higher/forward levels or eschelons, where echelon is lit. 'rungs of a ladder' or 'levels, subdivisions'; lit. from a Greek word for climax meaning a 'series of propositions rising in effectiveness' or 'escalating steps'.

A ladder is typically used to scale 'walls'==valus =wall, rampart, row or line of stakes as fortification, often used for defense; latin 'maceria' for "wall"; other roots for which relate to make/mason/machine/Freemason (see 2:22 above). A ladder can be used to breach a defensive barrier like when scaling a fortress wall, or when used horizontally, a ladder can be used to bridge gaps. And a ladder can be traversed up or down, and for the acrobats in the group, the same ways on the flip side.

Its been said that wormholes might be intergallactic gateways and that there are microscopic black holes that exist on Earth that lead to other dimensions (The Bermuda Triangle comes up in this respect every so often). According to Sign 6:6, we don't need to get so crazy as all that (just one crazy will do).

It can be argued, and very effectively so, that the Earth and Sky permeate each other, quantum mechanically speaking. In layman's terms the question "at what level does Sky start and Earth stop?" is a valid question. The Earth is more than bedrock and water, atmosphere and electromagnetic field or its Gravity--it extends into the Sky and the Sky penetrates the Earth in a similar fashion.

On a quantum mechanical level, there is nothing that says a negatively charged electron cannot ever pass through a positively charged nucleus, however fleetingly. So, even the electrons 'orbiting' a nucleus are in fact 'touching'. When we think about it, 'touching' is nothing more than the feedback our brains are wired to receive (perception) from the interplay of these electromagnetic particles, whether they are repelling, attracting, or otherwise entangled with each other.

Since electrons are all negatively charged and form the 'shell' of atoms, on the subatomic level, when our hands touch it is the surface 'electrons repulsion' that we interpret as 'contact'. But this barrier is illusory, since quantum mechanically speaking, these very same electrons can swap places, and permeate each other's nuclei--'an electron, is an electron, is an electron.'

The same can be said of the Earth and Sky--we really don't know or can't clearly define where one starts and the other begins (there are Sky particles that penetrate deeply into the Earth and as mentioned previously, the Earth extends out into the Sky). And that's why 6:6 is making an analogy of tunneling through the Earth or putting a ladder to the Sky--on some very basic level, it is essentially the same thing.

As for those transportable hierarchical arrangements that scale walls --the ladders; or passages that go under or around obstructions--the tunnels; they are typicallly implemented by the people walking around. We would never know it--encapsulated, self-aware, interdimensional travellers--God-Created Organic Time Machines--Interdimensional Beings (Angels, Jinn, Humans)--UFO ETs. (Am I boring You?).

Sign 6:99 sets off by establishing that it is at God's behest that Ma' (water/rain) comes down/is sent/revealed from the Sky and in turn produces every living thing.
Sign 6:99 is about as close as we can get to understanding how God brings about Something from Nothing, the concept of ma' for water is directly accessible, we understand how life depends on it. Taken to mean Ma' for 'negative space' or 'missing mass' then is what we understand to be 'no thing' from which, according to 6:99, springs forth everything (a resource to jump start, renew, everything--what the Disciples were praying for in 5:112 and 5:114, see above). {Maybe those Rainmen were onto something afterall}.

'And He it is who has caused waters to come down from the sky; and by
this means have We brought forth all living growth, verdure, close-growing
grain, the spathe of the palm tree, dates in thick clusters; and gardens of
vines, and the olive tree, and the pomegranate--all alike, yet so
(6:99 paraphrased)

Sign 6:125 describes in some detail how it feels to ascend Skyward... وَمَن يُرِدْ أَن يُضِلَّهُ يَجْعَلْ صَدْرَهُ ضَيِّقًا حَرَجًا كَأَنَّمَا يَصَّعَّدُ فِي السَّمَاء كَذَلِكَ يَجْعَلُ اللّهُ الرِّجْسَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ ..'and whomever He allows to stray He makes his chest tight/narrow/constricted severely/critically as if he is ascending/rising into the this manner God works His outrage/manifests extreme moral degredation/squalor onto those who will not believe.

The narrowing/constriction/tightness one feels when the air gets thinner or the air pressure decreases at higher elevation describes the actual physical sensation of rising through the upper atmosphere, but is also an apt description of the discomfort one feels from the discontent/regret/problems that ensue from making bad choices (or asthma). These are the sensations one is made to feel when God Works or Makes Known His Displeasure toward any one of us, the word al.rijsa الرِّجْسَ means 'abomonations', severe moral depravity, disgrace, dislike, outrage, scandal, hatred, etc.

Those whose will is aligned with God's Will (aka the definition of Muslim) by contrast feel no such physical discomfort/limitation since it is said that God 'opens their breasts wide' (they willingly yield) to the acceptance of self-surrender to His Will. Simply stated, since they have a clear conscience they have no reason to feel uptight.

That the two cases are compared and contrasted in the same verse 6:125 indicates the following:

  • The Sky is 'built' in a manner to act as a physical barrier against those
    considered not aligned with God's Will in that they feel limited/constricted
    when attempting to ascend Skyward

  • Those meeting with God's Approval should be able to 'ascend' into the Sky
    (make the Ascension) without feeling a physical limitation/discomfort

  • There is no guarantee that some Big Bully won't get a hold of your Ride,
    keeping you from staying up in the Sky for any reasonable amount of Time

(He Says: "We Bulls Wobble But We Don't Fall Down!" I Say: "I seem to remember landing, not falling down." )

Which makes for the following story arc: The Sky is a 'Construct', Created by God, for the Sole Purpose of keeping the 'rifraff' out; in the same way a Wall acts as a defensive obstacle/barrier that requires a (portable) instrument of escalating steps/rungs/effective arguments to scale it, or, much like a tunnel functions to make a channel or passageway under or around such an obstruction.

Wanna See me jump to conclusions and forego the increasingly more effective arguments? Sign 8:11 that makes mention of the Sky was discussed in some detail in an earlier post 'O, Ewes Guys!'
The 19th Sign 8:32 wherein the Sky is mentioned is the guantlet thrown at the Prophet pbuh where the faithless say, ".. if this is the Truth from you make it Rain Stones from the Sky or show us that severe punishment."

'Just think what all that money$$ we've spent on 'not
getting anywhere but one way there' wars could have done to improve our own
country's infrastructure over the course of the last decade---we would
have conceivably Built Heaven on Earth--but, alas, that Table Is Not Set For
Me. Probably meant for some other lucky vixen who goes in for playing
Chutes-n-Ladders with her charges--but that's not my speed, either. Since We're not keeping any secrets, You Know, I've come to regret whatever good I ever did there...I regret having done what little good I attempted and wish I would have tried my hand at the more titillating stuff.'

Sign 7:40 Reiterates the fact that those who shun/reject Our Signs will not have access to Heaven (the gateways/passages/doors to heaven/the sky will not be open to them) until such a time as a Large Twisted Rope/or Camel can be made to pass through the Eye of the Needle (double entendre?).
Verse 7:96 meshes quite smoothly with the concepts about the Sky in Chapter 6. Simply stating that had the people accepted Our Signs and believed and 'reinforced' our Messages, "We would have opened for them Blessings from the Sky and Earth..." لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِم بَرَكَاتٍ مِّنَ السَّمَاء وَالأَرْضِ the word lafatahna can also mean 'make available' and not just simply 'open' like one would a door and 'barakatin' means 'blessings'.

In order for the explicit meaning of the word 'open' to make sense in conjunction with 'blessings' , the root of the word 'barakat' has to be scutinized.

Taking the root 'bara' gives the following connotations: noun (Arabic and Icelandic/Swedish): 1. floor 2. fold 3. layer 4. coat 5. ply 6. storey 7. story 8. flat 9. coating 10. deck 11. multiple 12. stair 13. pile 14. fall 15. lap; suffix: 1. -fold noun 1.fold 2. pleat 3. tuck 4. queue 5. destination 6. plait 7. plica 8. lappet 9. lap 10. wrap 11. recess 12. gather 13. flexure;
1. just 2. solely 3. merely 4. simply 5. nothing else 6. no more; conjunction 1. only

That the terms 'fold', 'layer', 'pleat', 'wrap', 'multiple', 'stair', 'story' are associated with the root of the word for 'blessings' is intriguing, in light of just such notions being the subject here at A Page In The Life including: 'Tay-al-Ard', space/time 'folds', the 'Multiverse,' wrapping and unwrapping curves, and the Mystical Math and Phunny Physics we find in the Quran.

The concepts alluded to in Sign 7:96 are all the more riveting considering that the root 'bara' also gives us: 'simply' , 'merely'.

Essentially, this indicates that transcending or traversing the physical barriers we perceive on Earth or in the Sky would have been fascilited for people and it would be akin to nothing more than 'climbing a stair or ladder,' or simply 'walking through a door,' to bridge the dimensions or distances; or merely be ’transported in telling a story,’ metaphorically speaking, is all that it would take for these barriers/obstacles to unfold like 'pleats' (umbrellas?).

But, because there is so much Injustice in the World, the only way those who seek the Final Solution from Their Lord, find it in the solace that those responsible for such Evil 'while they were alive' can never Ever be able to come anywhere near them or to harm them in any way ever again since these barriers have been so firmly set in the wrong-doers' own minds.

The rest of the commentary will be annotated as time permits, but there are some passages beyond the first 19 expounded on here that call for more detailed explanation, specifically those that include mentioning 'doors' along with the 'sky'. (i.e., 7:40:11; 7:96:11; 78:19:2 -- Only since You asked ...I've all but given up on the idea that You are ever going to make this right; I mean, I watched 'The Adjustment Bureau' last night and that scene when Damon walks through the office and everyone is frozen in spacetime because he arrived somewhere he didn't belong is how I shopped the groceries and ran errands all over town, for several days/weeks/months/years...but unlike Damon in that Movie I didn't need anybody to ask me to pretend like it never happened--like whatamI, Nuts?!)

Applying the Principle 'As Above, So Below' a wikipedia article on mushroom morphology pegs all of the buzzwords found in the Quran description of the Sky (including vulva, veil, mushroom, expand (rapidly), etc.) an excerpt follows:

A mushroom develops from a nodule, or pinhead, less than two millimeters in diameter, called a primordium, which is typically found on or near the surface of the substrate. It is formed within the mycelium, the mass of threadlike hyphae that make up the fungus. The primordium enlarges into a roundish structure of interwoven hyphae roughly resembling an egg, called a "button". The button has a cottony roll of mycelium, the universal veil, that surrounds the developing fruit body. As the egg expands, the universal veil ruptures and may remain as a
, or volva, at the base of the stalk, or as warts or volval patches
on the cap. Many mushrooms lack a universal veil and therefore do not have either a volva or volval patches. Often there is a second layer of tissue, the partial
, covering the bladelike gills that bear spores. As the cap expands, the veil
breaks, and remnants of the partial veil may remain as a ring, or annulus,
around the middle of the stalk or as fragments hanging from the margin of the
cap. The ring may be skirt-like as in some species of Amanita, collar-like as in many species of Lepiota, or merely the faint remnants of a cortina (a partial veil composed of filaments resembling a spiderweb), which is typical of the genus Cortinarius.
Mushrooms that lack a partial veil do not form an annulus. (more at Mushroom at wikipedia)

The following comments added September 19, 2011:

There is an association between the Sky and Space; and Space (i.e., 'no thing/djin/Ma', dark matter/energy or missing mass) is conceptualized as a 'fabric' that 'warps' by the presence of matter (heavy objects). Signs that incorporate similes between the Sky and 'fabric' include, but are not limited to 51:7; 77:9, and 91:5 in the Table above.

Just to refresh, fabrics are often manufactured by weaving threads or 'knitting' together strings or yarn to make cloth. Weaving and knitting are two methods that in effect produce a 2-D cloth from a 1-Dimensional 'strings' (these techniques serve as accessible similitudes to going from a lower dimensional object to a higher dimension).

In weaving, threads are always straight, running parallel either lengthwise (warp threads) or crosswise (weft threads). By contrast, yarn follows a meandering path (a course), forming symmetric loops (also called bights) above and below the mean path of the yarn in knits (like unfolded orbits). The looping enables ‘stretching’ in different directions and can give knits as much as 5 times more elasticity than woven fabrics—a way to accommodate a greater range of motion (read as movement into Higher Dimensions, more directions) , whereas woven garments stretch mainly along one direction (the bias) and are not very elastic (unless more stretchable thread/yarn is used in the weaving).

Weaving involves drawing the weft (or woof) yarns/threads through the warp. The warp (longitudinal threads) are held in tension lengthwise on a frame/loom to facilitate the interweaving of the weft threads, and the word warp derives from something like 'that which is thrown across'. (There are very interesting connotations to the the word for warp in Arabic which include; anchor, 'that which drags the composition', 'slimy silt deposit?', stamen, web, color, deface, harm, assasinate, distort, twist, torture, falsify, skew, etc. One synonym that stands out in particular is سداة في النسيج which literally means 'in the texture', in that it is associated strongly with Tesla: according to The Online Etymology Dictionary: Texture derives from early 15c., "network, structure," from M.Fr., from L. textura "web, texture, structure," from stem of texere "to weave," from PIE base *tek- "to make" (cf. Skt. taksati "he fashions, constructs," taksan "carpenter;" Avestan taša "ax, hatchet," thwaxš- "be busy;" O.Pers. taxš- "be active;" Gk. tekton "carpenter," tekhne "art;" O.C.S. tesla "ax, hatchet;" Lith. tasau "to carve;" O.Ir. tal "cooper's ax;" O.H.G. dahs, Ger. Dachs "badger," lit. "builder;" Hittite taksh- "to join, unite, build"). Meaning "structural character" is recorded from 1650s. )

The weft, or 'that which is woven,' are the threads/yarns which transverse (go through/slanting/crosswise/oblique/sloping to) the warp. (Interesting connotations to the word weft from the Arabic include; wobble, wiggle, love, drawing, branch, sway, weave, etc. and a synonym in Arabic for weft نسيج actually means texture, affording another interesting synchronous parallel between 'weaving', 'space/fabric' , 'stepping up/down in dimensions,' 'constructing the sky,' and TESLA.)

Knitting is a weaving technique which involves 'knots' (math; closed circular braid, i.e., series of circles that cross over & under each other's strands, same centers, no backtracks & no extra loops; braids described by braid components and how the ends are joined (finished/link))

Curvature becomes a factor in that the elasticity inherent in knits allows them to follow the body's curvature closely (not surprising, since the knit & purl stitches look like unfolded conic curves); whereas, curvature is introduced into most woven garments only with special seams sewn in such as darts, flares, gussets and gores (wovens start with rectilinear weft/warp threads, so that in order to introduce curvature they must be cut and resewn; the seams join or bind the edges of the fabric with thread by sewing; another way to bind loose threads is by knotting, which is the method used in knitting).

While the same types of seams can also lend extra elasticity to knits, curvature can be introduced into knit fabrics without seams by using short rows , or increasing or decreasing the number of stitches.

The basic stiches used in knitting are the knit stitch and the purl (often denoted by k and p, respectively, when described in stitch patterns). The purl is the obverse of the knit stitch; when the fabric is turned over to the back side the purl looks like the knit stitch and the knit stitch when viewed from the back looks like a purl.

When the number of knit and purl stitches are not the same, (ie, k <>p), the fabric tends to curl. One example is in the 'stockinette stitch' where a row of knit stiches is followed by a row of purl stiches, producing a smooth fabric (read surface) that on the front (knit side) has columns (or wales) which look like a series of V's and when the fabric (surface) is turned over (obverse) the pattern looks like Dashes, the top and bottom edges tend to curl in toward the knit side of the fabric (or the front side, where the stiches holding rows together, produce a V pattern, are all on the front) , and the left/right sides tend to roll/curl in toward the back side of the fabric (where the yarn/thread holding side-by-side stitches together is all on the back side) .

When the knit and purl stitches are symmetric the fabric lies flat.

(wales v steps/discontinuities)

A sequence of stitches in which each stitch is suspended from the next is called a wale.
Casting on is the method used to secure the initial stitches of a knitted fabric, the method used to secure the final stitches in a wale is called binding off.

Wales of purl stitches tend to recede, and knit stitches tend to come forward. Purl wales flanked by knit wales (such as in ribbing/vertical lines) tend to be invisible, since the neighboring knit wales come forward. The dual case, is that rows of purl stitches form an embossed ridge relative to a row of knit stitches. This forms the basis of shadow knitting, in which the appearance of a knitted fabric changes when viewed from different directions. (See also distortion, deliberate distortion, representing a 3 dimensional object in a 2-Dimensional realm (like painting) and the Golden Mean discussion at A Tree, An Apple, A Wineskin).

Knits are generally more bulky than woven fabrics since they tend to use heavier gauge yarns, finer gauge threads produce better drape. (I could say something about the shopping but wouldn't want to rub it in--I heard someone running out for more cash earlier this evening).

Having said this, with help from and (I knit a wristlet!--dropped stiches, frayed yarn & all), we look to see what more Signs 51:7, 77:9, and 91:5 have to say about the Sky/Space Fabric.

وَالسَّمَاء ذَاتِ الْحُبُكِ 51:7

51:7 By the Sky Full of "al.hubuk.i"

وَإِذَا السَّمَاء فُرِجَتْ 77:9

77: 9 And if/when the Sky 'furjit'
{The idea here in 77:9 is that should the sky effectively 'slope' away from the horizontal, the word 'furjet' means to gap or get 'spaced' like separated by an interval of 'time' or 'matter' } --am I understanding You right?--No More Editing? so add no more?

وَالسَّمَاء وَمَا بَنَاهَا 91:5

91:5 By the Sky and Ma (Whatsoever) 'bana.ha' (Built it)

Starting with the last Sign mentioned first, (91:5) clearly intimates that the nature of the Sky is such that it is 'constructed or built' ('bana'.ha (Built It)), derived from the word 'bana' that includes not only the meaning that it is 'built' (ar. v build, structure, construct, make, put up, erect, rear, mason--some very closely associations with the etymology for Tesla), but also from considering the similar sounding/meaning Hindi word 'baana' which refers to the weft, and derives from another Hindi word "bun na" or "bunai" which means 'making with threads or strings', as is done in primitive weaving techniques (

And the exact nature of the Sky/Space and its ''construction" is reinforced in Sign 51:7, in that the Sky/Heaven/Space is rife with الْحُبُكِ (al. hubuki), the most rudimentary root for which is حب 'hhub' gives us 'love', 'passion', 'seed', 'to lose one's heart', 'to like' and 'to attach'. And from the latter verb form derives the greater root حبك hubuk, meaning, 'your love', 'knitting', 'crochet', and 'to weave.' (Ooh, look! Yet another opportunity to be obtuse!--What are You getting at?-- That I Love Tesla? Or perhaps that I get to be Madame deFarge from a Tale of Two Cities?).

And since the Sky described in 51:7 is said to be rife or full of 'weaving' the understanding is that it is made up of or comprises 'interwoven paths', (the word 'tthata' gives us 'some thing' or 'some one', so if it is something woven, it would be a 'thread/string' or a 'path', or any other logical construct, and if it is a 'someone' it pretty much says I am sooo out of luck...).
