Hi, Mom!

If a zealous person is a zealot, is a jealous person a jealot?

You see, soon I shall go to the former Kingdom of Hawai'i. I'll hobnob with the dukes and princes and even maybe the hereditary monarch herself. Yes, and I'll do my best to uphold Mom's teachings about ettykett and poolightness and stuff. I'll even take my evening dress, not that it's any different from my day dress (neither of which is a dress or even a kilt).

I'll think of Amos, snowbound in Nawth Karolinah and Maggie snowbound in Texas and Bee-Dubya snowbound in Florida. And even gnu, basking in the 80F sunshine of New Brunswick's spring. Even Kereboxu, wherever she may be.

Me, I'll be tuning my surfing skills -- I learned to surf the last time I was there. I was very taken by it and before I left I had a great time and I hope to ride a ninety-footer this time!

I never had the talk. I was simply commanded that I was not allowed to say what the location of a particle is, or ever touch the thingy, nor could I deny it exists even if it didn't and that it is guided by a pilot wave in front of a partice that the particle then follows.

In our world the wave created by our boat is a wake that trails behind us in an opposite fashion to the quantum world.

In the quantum world, space itself is felt to be energetically vibrating. It all reminds me of one of those old fashioned electric football games with the meandering linemen because of the amplitude and frequency of the vibrating field.

I would cheat and guide/massage the bits from going out of bounds. Little did I know I was quantum computing in 1961.

If Max didn't have Mudcat on a three day feed right now MOM would have been so far under the wheels of Rap's plane as it left for Hawaii I hate to think of it. Amos is excused, he's still sipping his specialized cocktail, but there's no travel or drugs or snow keeping the rest of us from reaching our keyboards.

She's okay now, she's sleeping it off, wrapped in a quilt taking a long nap on the couch.

As I look from my window, 15 floors up, on the palm tree shaded sands of Waikiki I think of the storm warning for SLC yesterday: snow and 75 mph winds. But the gentle strains of the ukuleles accompanying the hula dancers and the gentle surf with the longboarders riding in all work to erase the memories of snow and cold.

I saw a picture of sea=salt that claimed to be hundreds of year old, and it had a best-by date of next year on it, Go figger. I have slowly rebounded thus far but tomorrow--oh, tomorrow!--I re-enter the biochemical Maw of Medicament as predicamentary prey, or a subject of the predicate, as you whist.

I will struggle to play that night but the next day will be riddled with slugs of lassitude and spasms of the upper GI and great indolence of brain. This is called Going Through Hell to get to the Other Side, which is called Getting Better.

Then, the voodoo cannibals tie me up again and cut me open in order to Remove Important Parts. Assuming none of the foregoing kills me, I will then be declared a Cancer Survivor and will be sent home to nurse my resentments and crawl out of the hole I did not, myself , dig. This is the Modern Miracvle of American Health Care post Nixon, also known as Shit Creek Sans Paddle. But if it does not kill me, it will surely make me more calloused one way or the other.

Rap that is just salacious word play with celestial mechanics. tsk tsk
play is good

It is true that I have played with suppositions about the cosmos for 50 years. With the more I have playfully learned from the serious measurements of dedicated scientists the more I can back up my claims.
For example; (roll eyes or not)

Uniting quantum gravity with relativity is a dead end.
To best unfold the New Physics it is far more important to unite Field Physics with Relativity in which quantum behavior is the fundamental vibrating music of the cosmos.

The new field force carrier is not just one Higgs boson, it is as many as 4-8 variants of the Higgs. These other variants are called technicolor versions that simply have their quarks in different configurations. (we do not yet know which variant we may have detected in the HADRON collider)



My serious explanations of the mysteries of Expansion*, Dark matter* and dark energy* are as follows:


In the begining when space time was born and all the universe's spinning fundamental particles and forces were forged and began their journey through time, the great mass of the expansion
phase of the early tiny universe was slowed to a crawl by the effect of mass on spacetime .
To us it would appear as if very little time passed and only seemed faster than light. Eventually the universe appears to expand at a phenomenal rate.

Measurements show that after 4 billion years the expansion appears to slow down. Gradually the slowing expansion stopped after 7 billion years and up until now an acceleration of the universe is in full sway. My theory is that black holes forge many of the variants of higg bosons, some of which expand space instead of only giving mass to matter.
These different kinds of higg bosons may number from 4 to eight different kinds and produce all the forces and forms of matter including dark matter and space time.
Just as the big bang produced different kinds of bosons, so do black holes which have effected the expansion of the universe. These exotic forms of technicolor bosons forged in black holes like the
forging of fundamental forces in the big bang, have now significantly increased more technicolor bosons and tipped the balance that are now causing the accelerated expansion of the universe.

Usually I only say that black holes are respondsible for the acceleration of our universe hoping someone might ask why, but no one ever has.

Who'da ever thought a dyslexic savant could come up with a more simple Occam Razor explanation of the mysteries of the cosmos?

Amos, this is the way my 'tendril' feels the Cosmos and all its attractions and repulsions.

Math as the language, geometry as the cosmos results in beautiful patterns you can see here
https://www.ted.com/talks/garrett_lisi_on_his_theory_of_everything


This is the kind of stuff called high risk-high reward. I first saw this concept presented in a Scientific American magazine almost 10 years ago. It looked promising. It predicts up to 8 different Higgs 'God particles' but 4 is a good start.

Because of its geography, rain DOES fall "up" (as does everything else) in places in the Southern Hemisphere (like Australia and New Zealand). This is not embarrassing for ladies in skirts or men in kilts, because the gravity there is also reversed. Newton's classic "FG = Gm1m2/r2 uses both negative and imaginary numbers below the Equator. That is why Tuvalu has already established colonies on the Moon, Mars, and several asteroids, as the escape velocity there is negative ("falling upwards").

To answer DtG's original question, we in the North are "under the weather" of the South.

in southeastern New England,
one consequence of snowstorm after snowstorm,
with ice, freezing, downed trees, and power failures,
is that
electronic communications are tangled and snarled up
even after the streets have been plowed
and the motor traffic is rolling along as usual.

Having no computer at home of my own,
I rely on public computer workstations.
And these have not been the same since all the storms hit.
The internet providers hereabouts are all overburdened and slow.
Don't even ask about telephones and voice-mail;
here at a local branch of FedEx Office [formerly known as Kinko's]
the staff is cheerfully working jobs
at their copiers and printers, with electricity on,
but their telephones are snarled up and they can't call out
without hitting voice-mail hold-message recordings.

We were in the condo we'd rented in Maui. About a minute from finishing packing and getting out. One or two small things to pack at the most, up there on the 7th floor.

And the power went out. I was told it was because of the weather in Massachu...Masash...Maine.

There was a big noise, like a super-strength yard blower machine. I figured that it had tripped the circuit breakers.

Nope! It was the building's emergency generators! We could safely move our luggage down the elevator instead of schlepping it down seven floors.

In fact, two big generators were working, one for each side of the building. Our friends loaded their car (one of them was using a walker) and off we went for Kahalui and home.

It would be nice if the Northeast wouldn't mess up the power in Hawai'i when there were snowstorms.
