Life, ain't it grand even during the most challenging of times?
The biggest and probably the best news will be the discovery of life beyond Earth. We probably are all a bit hopeful that there is otherwise the universe would be a sort of lonely place for us.
Today science has a more agnostic approach to the subject of extraterrestrial life. We accidentally conflate the two separate issues of UFOs and distant life.

Now that we are a bit beyond the giggle factor its time we had better data. It was back in the 1950's that some of the best propositions were made regarding the Fermi paradox and the famous Drake equation that used seven different parameters that could be studied together or independantly. Even the space-time propulsion theory of the seventies has changed little but has identified the trouble spots we can't yet solve.

An alien's best friend could be a dog that resembled goo like its master but totally unlike the internal skeletal structure of somewhat similar animals on Earth, you know, like an octopus but much stranger. If there ever is a first contact we would most likely be grossed out.

I believe challenging theories or even laws to their breaking point does advance the known and unknown even if it seems whacky to do so.

Thank you very much for your kind words, Maggie - I’ve shown them to Mrs Backwoodsperson and she also sends her thanks.

He’s being a good boy so far as his stitches go, he hasn’t made any attempt to get at them, and we haven’t needed to resort to the cone the vet gave us, nor to the recovery suit (like a doggie-leotard) that the Mrs bought for him. Our main problem is that he’s very reluctant to eat - he has to have five small, low-fat, 76-calorie ‘meals’ per day in order to prevent pancreatitis, and we’re finding it difficult to get him to eat anything like the required amount, which means we have to ‘top him up’ with liquid food through the tube in his neck. Hopefully we’ll get there soon, but it seems a long haul.

Other things, such as carrying him up and down stairs (our house has three storeys, and our living room and kitchen/diner are on the middle floor) to prevent his internal stitches being pulled out, we are coping with pretty easily, but the feeding issue is a worry. And, of course, there will be the biopsy results…

I’m very aware that certain people don’t understand the bond between humans and their dogs, but my wife and I have been unable to have children of our own, and he is our joint-‘significant other’!

Thanks again for your kind words, they are very much appreciated.

Aww, John, that's hard news about your pooch, but it sounds hopeful. Last year at this time my Blue Heeler was getting her stitches out following a pre-xmas surgery that tracked from her abdomen up above the second row of teats. She wore a cone for a couple of weeks and also a t-shirt to help keep her from scratching at itchy stitches (she would stand and lift her back leg to attack the stitches, the cone only kept her face away from them). The vet was delayed returning from an out-of-town trip and we had to accommodate for a second week by keeping her on antibiotics until the stitches were out. I finally said yes to sending in a biopsy sample and it turned out mastitis. Whew. Not cancer. I hope for a similar outcome for your guy.

The good news is that our Border Terrier survived open surgery to remove his gall-bladder and spleen, and take biopsies from his prostate and liver last Friday. He’s home from the Referral practice at Wetherby with a huge wound from his chest to his scrotum, many stitches (haven’t counted them), and a feeding-tube in his neck that we have to put liquid food into five times a day. His dressing came off today, and he already seems quite a bit more comfortable. And he ate his first solid food this afternoon.

Now the nervous wait for the biopsy results.

Whether it's good news or bad, who can tell. What you can tell is that it's a pile of obscurantist bullshit. The good news is that Liverpool are top of the Premier League, have an easy fourth-round tie in the FA Cup having demolished Arsenal, are in the League Cup semifinal on Wednesday and came top of their group in the Europa League. Of course, complacency would be less than wise. You won't see that coming from St Jurgen.

Now that UFOs are an existential fact in the view of the government research in the space-time technology that I have long believed is at work is being investigated. Here is a link to such work
https://ntrs.nasa.gov/api/citations/19800010907/downloads/19800010907.pdf




eccerpt
The potential existence of the space-time harmonics mean that if a craft at a
specified space-time point could artificially generate a configuration of electro-/
hydromagnetic fields which has a resonance with a distant space-time point, a
basic imbalance would be created. This imbalance would be out of harmony with
the "projection laws" which create the space-time properties from higher dimensional properties. Forces would be set in motion to re-establish a balance which
in this case require that the craft and its fields to be located at the space-time
point where such field configurations are a natural harmonic of that space-time
metric. The best analogy in every day life is that of tuning a radio. The tuning
knob in this case is the spacecraft's mechanism for changing the configuration of the
magnetic wave form. The radio stations are the various space-time points. For a
radio, the signal (which is always there), is manifested through the speakers
associated with the radio, for the field resonance system the speakers exist only
at the radio station. Once the spacecraft's magnetic wave form is tuned into a
distant space-time point, that wave form is forced to manifest only at that spacetime point according to the "projection laws".
A means of generating the electro-/hydromagnetic configurations which would be
required remained a problem until the study of magnetic field line merging and
hydromagnetic wave effects was undertaken. With the completion of recent thesis
research, a possible means for generating the magnetic wave form was determined
(Holt, 1979). This research along with the results of fusion research resulted in
the proposed implementation of a spacecraft which generates megagauss magnetic
fields which are oppositely directed (See Figure 3). These oppositely directed
field lines will merge and re-connect expelling magnetic fields and plasma out
to the sides. In this initial concept, expelled field lines again meet oppositely
directed field lines.and merge again, possibly forcing large amounts of electromagnetic and hydromagnetic radiation outside the craft. This concept is currently
undergoing revision.
FIELD RESONANCE CONCEPT • . .
In the proposed implementation (See Figure 3). high powered lasers are used to generate
the megagauss fields by the effects of non-colinear temperature and density gradients
(Kruer and Estabrook, 19.77; Max et alt , 1978; Nishihara and Ohsawa, 1976). By
alternately pulsing adjacent laser sets, the location of the merging processes can
be made to oscillate back and forth at a desired rate. The amount of laser
energy can be varied to alter the strength of the magnetic fields. Thus by
changing the laser's power and/or wavelength and the pulse frequency, the resultant
magnetic wave form can be changed or tuned to the desired harmonic of a distant spacetime point. If flight to a nearby location is desired, the magnetic wave form can
be continuously re-tuned allowing very quick and short space-time transformations.
For an observer it would appear to be a smooth flight in much the same way that we
do not see the individual frames of a film. For large jumps or travel to very
distant space-time points, some means of preventing the tuning to intermediate
space-time points is required.

Scarborough cancelled their fireworks display last year because of the walrus, without realising that the walrus had arrived at Scarborough to see the display. The fact that the walrus did not arrive this year proves the point.

Here in my neck of the Lincolnshire Backwoods, people were setting fireworks off from as soon as it was dark yesterday, around 4:30, and it went on all evening until around 1 a.m. I find it ironic that, at a time when many people are complaining bitterly that they are struggling to live in the middle of a cost of living crisis, some - seemingly many, if last night’s re-enaction of the opening barrage on the first day of the Battle of The Somme is anything to go by - can afford to burn money, metaphorically if not literally, on fireworks.

No firework ban here - Fireworks - the law in the UK
