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


Earworms and Talking Heads, An Accessible Simile to Time

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a Lifetime, water flowing underground
same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was
--From Talking Heads' Once In a Lifetime, Lyrics by Keith Urban

The Quran encourages us to reflect on natural phenomena in order to conceptualize God without the ability to make a direct observation of 'God' while we are alive, since just like envisioning a hyperdimensional object in a lower dimension it is near impossible to phathom an Infinite Being when we are limited by the 4-Dimensional Spacetime we are born into.

In 'A Gardner Like That One,' following the geometry of how spacetime evolves from 'spin foam' led to the conclusion that Time does not exist near the Planck scale, that it is discontinous and changes abruptly from one tick to the next.

While the observation and the math is correct, the analysis is skewed by the fact that Time's apparent disappearance is akin to 'water flowing underground' (an allusion is made to this effect in Sign 6:6, Time/like water flowing beneath them like a River) where we can't directly observe it, rather than its popping into and out of existence. The conclusion that something (Time in this case) goes to Nothing and then emerges from Nothing just doesn't make any sense (ie., that Information is Lost then Wanders back out of the Void, with the memory to pick up where it left off?).

The apparent discontinuity may better be explained if we look for an accessible similitude (As Above, So Below), the same way we can intuitively comprehend an Infinite Being (God) with our limited Human faculties, Time can be understood in a similar fashion as we observe the Earth's Water Cycle. Actually, the Water Cycle is mentioned quite often throughout the Quran, and Time is alluded to as flowing like a River (the homonym Days/Time/River).

A Gardner Like That One

I THINK that I shall never see
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.
--American Poet, Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

--it's not that easy, and me not so smart, so Yous guys have first crack at it and work from my notes.
Oh...I forgot, someOne already figured all this out, I just edited the in-flight black box recording for posterity... need to bust a gasket over it, I do believe You Know It!

It's a good thing I count slow-- gives me time to work out what the problem is; in this case it is that anything/anyone coming across this site thinks any of this is about them--well, there is more to this World than Them. Okay?

See, some people don't give a ratsass about others because they are bitter that they have to consume the least inspired cuisine on Earth with the most restrictions, not because anyone is punishing them but because Jacob was a finicky eater and apparently had some food allergies, to boot, so they don't much care about others who consume tastier food since what can be the worst thing God can do to them besides make them eat Gfilte fish?

Then there is them who feel they sin so beyond redemption that God will wipe out everything and everyone on Earth since others can't be doing any better than they are, especially if they finally see the light and repent and are SAVED because then they will get air-lifted off the face of the Earth before God comes down really hard on them thar sinners. Not stopping to consider God has no reason to ever reproach most Buddhists living on the Earth because they seem to do pretty well with just applying the Golden Rule, and they are good for the Earth; on average don't run amok against each other, and seem to do really well in school; so, why should they be wiped out if they don't have the same guilt complex as them 'we-gonna-be-air-lifted-out-of-here-everytime-we-miscall-the-end-of-the-world'?
Then there is the regular garden variety them 'holier-than-thou-'cause-i-can't-read-a-word-of-scripture-but-i-follow-the-fella-with-the-rattiest-beard'; who for the most part just wing it, or shout it, shoot it, or blow it up to make a point about something nobody else much cares about because they're all having trouble making ends meet or taking their accounts off-shore.

So, My Dear Michael, on 3 you will pick your target(s) knowing how I feel about above ground power lines and faulty infrastructure. I would just aim for the nodes and not over think this thing; don't worry if you hit me, because it ain't like I ain't been burned before. It's set up so that even a misfire will hit an intended target, and activate. That's a Kammand. 3!
{What do I need Mikey for? Well, for the simple reason that I am Dead, and You never thought I would have so much fun at it! I know that my actions have no effect in that world I so gladly departed, I couldn't even get my kids to observe their curfew; but having died very effectively and somehow having my kids join me, I have no heirs left behind and that's why I have an Executor! So, Bro, Execute--I'm not kidding; I mean really, if I'm not here to rearrange the furniture, or the scenery, then what? I know it's not my cooking or fine fashion sense that has Him keeping around--yeah, I got lots of compliments on my shoes lately, but it ain't like I don't know You paid those guys to say as much! I mean really--young men who look like commandos admiring my granny purple shoes! How much did You have to pay them for that exactly?

What gave it away?
Well, the first one was a really buff 30-something black guy that just happened to notice my shoes while I was waiting to cross the street. Not only does he admire my shoes as he finishes up calling in his exact location when he approaches me, but it's like shoes are the last thing a man like that would ever notice on a woman--any hot rocker chick would consider him a conquest. And he really plays up the part, he asks for my number and then when I tell him my kid is dating someone his age, he offers me dinner-- a drink--anything? And I'm like what would I do with a guy like you if I took them home?--pull out the measuring cups, pre-heat the oven and teach them how to bake cookies? Let's try to 'keep it real' fellas.

And then not 3 days later, some other guys are like illegally parked at my place of business and after sitting in their car for over an hour jamming my internet, tapping my phone line, or calling in an air strike, I step out to see if they need assistance, since clearly the on-site parking is for clients only. Then this giant of a man sitting in the car with his buddy thank me for my concern, but they are really just waiting for a friend who went across the street for something and they are from out of town and they won't be long.

Fine, since they are out-of-towners, I let them know that they can park in the mall parking lot all day for like a dollar across the street, but the big guy says he'd rather valet his car. Like that makes as much sense to me as being an out of towner with Nevada plates; I thought Nevadans were desert-commuting Angelenos.

So, I let them wait for their friend to return with the caveat that they not leave their car unattended, since the boss gets a great deal of pleasure in having such vehicles towed away. They thank me for the courtesy and as I get back to work, the big guy says, "Nice shoes!" and I'm like, "Someone must have PAID you to say that!" He doesn't deny it, just adds, "Yeah, but I do like'em." use, I can't piece together the story after getting kicked out of the Mosque...maybe it was a bit too ambitious--my having gone back to '84...maybe if I recount something later, like around '98, '99, or 2000.

Maybe it will finally help answer Your question, "What! Are you Clueless? Stupid? Menopausal?"

My answer, "It's not like I'm deliberately not trying to be Obtuse, just to keep up pretenses!"

In retrospect, it's really hard to believe the stories, not because they are some kind of embroidered fish tales, or flights of fancy, but because the events were so marginally extraordinary that it was easier to rationalize them into some type of mundane happenstance than to have to see them for how surreal or truly removed from Reality they really were.

I think it was sometime around 1999, not any later than 2000, when I was asked to audit a meeting related to work at Point Mugu (according to my records, it was Tuesday, December 10, 1996). Good luck finding the video, meeting minutes, or video log on that one, but I was not the only one there and it couldn't have been a more conventional work-related activity.

Working for a regulatory agency, go sit in on a meeting, take some notes, fill out a mileage expense report, and write a summary. Inconvenient in that I would have to log over 70 miles on my vehicle or commute an extra 60 miles to pick up a company car to avoid having to do that, fight the traffic, and try not to toss my cookies should I cave in to a chronic illness that my doctors were trying to convince me was due to stress, or allergies, or a misguided need for attention.

It was a particularly grey day as I headed out from home directly to the base before sunrise to allow time for the commute and not be late for that morning's meeting. I got past the security gate, found the building where I was told to check in, parked, got out of the car, put on my jacket, tried not to look like I was just released from a 3 week hold in the psych ward for complaining of a massive 3-year headache and pain in my shins that felt like they imploded which made me turn into a screaming mimi around my kids. The burning sensation in my skin and funny audio-visual effects were like minor inconveniences compared to the sudden projectile vomiting and pain in my chest that felt like a heart attack but was not a heart attack, they tried to convince me it was something I ate.

I remember thinking I needed to wear a jacket over the skirt I had on, not only to look more professional and pulled-together, but because I had recently lost about 20% of my body weight and my skirt wasn't fitting right. A jacket can hide a lot of flaws and when you're sitting down, all anyone else sees is the neatly tailored jacket (if you remember not to slouch).

As the majority of meeting attendees gathered in the reception area, a polite man in uniform walked us into the conference room, I think he gave us a little run down of what they were doing that morning, and we may have stepped into one of the control rooms on the way, but I'm not so clear on that. I know he mentioned something about some testing they were doing over one of the Channel Islands.

I was more than happy to quietly find my way to a seat around the conference table and just get off my feet once the little tour was over. I knew some of the people in attendance; some of them I had lengthy telephone discussions with in the past, others I had actually met over the course of my work on this particular issue. They probably thought I was standoffish or ill that day, but all I was doing was trying to get through what promised to be a long meeting followed by a long drive home.

The meeting didn't get underway once we all settled in, apparently someone was running late. The door to the conference room was left open in anticipation of the one to get this thing started. A man was standing by the door, a further clue that there was someone else expected to join us.

After a minute or two, an officer comes through the door. I guess he was an officer; he had stuff on his shoulders (not bird droppings), thingamajigs on his lapels (not breakfast) and more stuff on his breast pocket (not from a leaky pen)--the decorations were how his important stature gets communicated in some unspoken language to let everyone else know he can operate equipment the rest of us couldn't, or that he can press a very important button the rest of us shouldn't.

His fashionable lateness and overall deportment led me to think he must be an important fixture at the base, probably one of the people who get to use the $3,000 toilets or the super-high-tech urinals--the digital ones that sing or light up when they sense moisture--or whatever is the selling point for top-gun urinals-- I don't use them so I'm not well-informed on that subject.

I remember looking up when he arrived because I heard him speaking and not because I was watching the door. I guess that was the intention, arriving fashionably late to make an entrance, and he leans in a little to the man awaiting his arrival and says, "Do you know who that is?"

The fella, thinking he was motioning at me since I was not a regular attendee to the meeting says, "Someone the agency sent over to audit the meeting."

And without missing a beat, the late-comer says, "That's my Wife!"

On hearing this, I turn to the woman sitting nearby that I know to be a contractor charged with writing a formal report on the subject of the meeting and wonder how she and her company got past the nepotism clause on this one; if she is married to the top brass and writing a report that is clearly supposed to make recommendations that would be a conflict of interest with the operations at the base. A report that the contractor gets paid twice my annual income to write based on findings my agency generates and are in the public domain; basically free for the asking--which is how I knew her, she asked me and I gave her the information for free.

In retrospect, I now know that he was not referring to her, and over a decade later, I get why the term 'the WIFE' is so offensive to me. It conjures up images of the Wired Integrated Female Electroencephalograph (aka Karen Plankton, first television appearance July 1999 episode of Spongebob Squarepants). She can be wall mounted, or mobile, and she has a nag-chip installed along with a Chicago accent. Can't get much more offensive than that--if that doesn't make you want to push that button, Michael, I don't know what will.

Maybe this--the fact that I have been forced into performing all of the duties of a wife, without having any of the privileges such a station entails. Some say they can't live in a world without Love, the very ones who turn around and make like they don't believe there is a God, or in extreme cases think that they are God.

I never believed that. Just take a gander at this blog. I actually am not intending to prove the existence of God for my own edification, since clearly I can articulate the concept to those reading here that I've known there is One all along.

I wanted to prove it to them, because when they whisper to each other how 'weird' it is, or marvel at how I can 'rationalize' what happened to me, I can demonstrate what I have known all along, and believed all along--unequivocally-- that there is A Final Justice, An Ultimate Truth, by virtue of the fact that there is only ONE Outside Observer--God.

That's why where there is essentially a Multitude of possible Outcomes (The Multiverse); we all experience just one Reality (a common history)---that one which is His Singular Point of View (Viewing Plane). The only one that is the Absolute Truth (where all the divergence is ablated, parallel lines converge, the Node, The Zero Point Field--watchmacallit, I know You get Me).
