go through you, through this planet, through suns -- and there are
trillions of them. Isn't science great?"
-- Yes, you must be kidding. Even
if that is what neutrinos do, so what. The real truth is that
scientists make a big deal out of very little and you are paying for
it. In October we looked at the intro
to neutrinos. It's fun, it's rewarding, and it will not raise
your taxes. This topic comes in two parts, and here
is the second one.
know the radius of a circle from which a star is made. The math guy
should now tell me the distance between the points of the star."
-- Yes, that is what math guys do
best. But what if the exact division of a single circle is really
about a very rudimentary star formation, particularly because
planetary pairs and several atomic orbitals also make stars? In
September's DSSP topic we look at a new
and simple reference to use when constructing a star -- and this
would be good for stars in macro and micro.
symmetries are pretty."
-- And there is more than one. It
could be about a duality if there are the feminine and masculine
components. Yet symmetries could be the most primary properties that
are much ignored in physics
the even symmetry is about energy
and in our July DSSP topic
the odd symmetry is about real
things and in our August topic
about everything and then they can talk about science."
-- Not really. Politicians have
their own agenda and if a politician talks about nature, it just does
not mesh. In our June 2012 DSSP topic.
"The photon pings the
electron and the electron just flies off."
-- That is in essence what
Einstein said to explain the photoelectric effect -- with equations
and all. But this proposed mechanism and the equations ignore the
conservation of momentum. If you figure this out in May's
2012 DSSP Topic, does it mean you are smarter than he is? No.
Einstein is for kids.
"The eye can be used
constuctively and or destructively."
-- I don't know what this is
about but it is April 1 and the ancient Egyptians are on the record
talking about Seth and Horus and how and why the fight for the
kingdom turned out the way it did. In April's DSSP
Topic we look at the eye, again.
"When I use my
computer to calculate the force, my computer doesn't move."
-- I know, we are so used to
thinking of computers as machines that compute but do not actually
physically deliver what they've just computed. Maybe it is time to
rise our expectations of our computer a bit. In March 2012 DSSP
"Use your head."
-- How silly of me, I did not
mean it physically. But if I clarify it by saying to use both of your
heads, it's just as silly. In February's
DSSP topic we look at both halves of our brain and how they each
work differently and separately. And if they can find a way to work
together you self-organize, too.
"Electron is a
particle and so it cannot split going through two slits."
-- Professors give you smug
answers and then they want to get paid for that. Experimentally, an
electron and a photon produce the same pattern but that does not seem
to bother them. If you heard or read the musings, stop by at our
explanation of an electron
encountering two slits in January DSSP topic.
pressure." Not in nature but by a state university professor.
-- Professors have it difficult.
The economy is tanking and this person anonymously talks about
physics because, well, somebody has to make it worse. Using public
money, of course. In December 2011 DSSP topic we look at the
University of Illinois' incompetence
in more ways than one.
"Can things disappear
and appear again, good as they were?
"Witches or Wicca.
It's the old wife's tails of beliefs."
-- Except that the 'opening' and
'closing' of stars corresponds to 'harmonious' and 'disharmonious'
pairs of notes. Yeah, witches don't really explain why they do it
some certain way, but it works for them and now there is an
explanation. Witches do it with a pentacle and now I extend it with a
ten pointed star. All in October DSSP
Platonic solids can change
from one to the next
-- It does not seem that way but,
for example, a rotation of a cube results in a hexagon. Because
viruses are shaped as an icosahedron (a 20-triangle solid), this
topic has some urgency and in September
DSSP we look at the octohedron
Stars are presently
defined without applications considerations
-- That's changing. We offer a
new definition of a geometric star and start with the one made with
concentric circles. Yes, this is about the orbits
and the stars that are made with them. The first star is from
orbits and its definition is split between June and July DSSP topics.
-- That has changed. This topic
is now complete with the star made from non-concentric circles. It's
about multiple atoms making a molecule. In August
2011 DSSP topic.
"Stars are pretty and
all that but is there more to constructing them?"
-- But of course, and it goes
along with the exactness of the construction. All energy is wave
based. Energy waves can be straight but if you want them to stick
around they have to close in a circle and acquire symmetry about a
point. But only wavelengths of some multiple can close about a
geometric point. 24 point and 16 point stars are each constructible
exactly but in this month DSSP topic we offer one construction that
creates both stars.
And so it happens that the two star points are in the 3:2 ratio -- a
nice musical ratio.
"Make the 5-point
hyperstars from interlocking rings."
-- Dividing the circle by 5
exactly goes back to Euclid and possibly Pythagoras but making the
perfect 5-pointed star from two interlocking rings is recent and
ours, too. As you make the 5-point or 10-point hyperstar you will
also end up with a bunch of other geometric components the likes of
lunes, circles, and triangles. Now, make
art with it: Kick it off in January DSSP topic.
"Count points on a
star and you will always bend your path as you go from one point to
-- Keep bending in one direction
and the star is convex. But reverse the direction and the star is
also concave. This is how it is is from the day the scientists
started classifying stars. Ok, but it doesn't work on our hyperstar.
In December's DSSP topic we give the scientist the finger once again
(and as usual) and show that the hyperstar is neither
convex or concave.
"Sending an eye?
Yeah, first class."
-- We've got something on 'sending
an eye.' It happenned in ancient Egypt and because it's posted
April 1 you can take it or leave it.
"Future time is not
linear? Yeah, warp on."
-- You want to foretell the
future. It is about the infinity of variables doing their thing. Yes,
it can be managed. In our July
"I don't believe
anything posted on April 1."

is about warped space. That's all I know."
Not so. Although a
warped mind produces warped theories, you will want to do better than
that. Get going with pictures/slides that sum
it up. Then you firm up with basic
concepts that will enable you to go
for a spin, and zoom up and down the scale
of the universe. Not a bad start.
If you feel up to
a full dose of gravitation, invite a bunch
of QM gravitation ideas and see if you can
sort them all out. Think of it as the readiness test for the diamond
run. If you crash, take time to pick up the pieces and try again,
faster than ever.
-- And we have equations, too. So
why is it we still don't understand it? If gravitation issues from
computable relationships among matter's components, let's find them.
We put down some of gravitation's
components in our April 2008 DSSP topic.
"Inertia is a force
that resists a change of a body's speed or direction. But when the
speed approaches lightspeed the inertia becomes nonlinear because
-- This is the case for about a
hundred years. Yet it is incorrect. You want to know how the energy
conservation works and then you'll know mass has nothing to do with
it. It's about the wave and you'll begin to like waves after this
July '10 DSSP topic.
"Get this. If two
waves add up to zero, where did the energy go?"
-- They sure add up to zero. But
you know your geometry and there is the up-down direction as well as
the direction going along the motion of the wave. And so we take a
more general look at waves
adding to zero in June '10 DSSP topic.
"Smart atom? Neah,
atoms can be smashed to pieces."
-- Well, so can you. But if the
construction of an atom takes a lot of smarts then such inteligence
could be in the atom. And in the solar system. And .. .. In May 2010
DSSP topic we look at the intelligence
of your everyday rock.
"I love frequencies.
Some can even be mysterious."
-- Before you get excited by
frequencies you want to know something about such a complex topic. In
our December DSSP topic
we put some structure into it and sum up the multitude of frequency
sources. Happy New Year ..
-- You will need multiple
frequencies if you want to create something from nothing. Well, the
nothing is nothing in the material sense and you'll have to put it
together logically first. In our first
2010 DSSP topic.
"Energy comes from
heat, light and moving things. Healing energy is for, well, gee, I
-- Scientists can put a number on
your everyday energy but they are clueless when it comes to energy
associated with knowledge, for example. So we call on Pythagoras to
help us with a different ways of classifying
energy in three montly installments from February through April
DSSP topics. You guessed it, it's about the dimensions of independence.
"Electron is like a
little bouncing ball. A very little bouncing ball."
-- But an electron can also
become a wave. Okay, you knew that but does the electron physically
spread and then reduce again? Yep, nothing's forbidden about that and
in our September,
October and November '09 topics we ask you to apply it in the
most unusual place -- your body.
"Virtual numbers are
imaginary numbers. Curious, but that's about it."
-- Not so fast. Virtual numbers
come from the square root of minus one. They are curious because
they've been around for a thousand years but nobody could make much
with them or of them. This month we bring the virtual and the
irrational numbers together to see how they play. You might guess
this month's DSSP topic is about the physics
of a photon and you would be right. But the virtual numbers also
make a domain of their own.
"Pentacle is for witches."
-- Yes, it is. There are also
guys who get really self-righteous speaking of evil pentacles. They
foam at the mouth and speak of the end of the world so much you'd
think they'll sprout horns any minute now. So, February DSSP topic is
about creation of a pentagram from a brand
new pentacle -- and it is about the workings of a gas molecule.
Don't expect the antichrist predictors to calm down, though. Anybody
speaking about dogma cannot calm down simply because they don't know
any better. Smile and keep on creating.
-- It surely seems that way. But
once you find out you cannot make a perfect circle from a real thing
such as your rubber band, the circle becomes a bit more mysterious.
In our September '07 DSSP topic we talk about the energy
and the perfect circle -- and the stars, too.
