PostSubject: Technology and Science Concepts   Mon Sep 24, 2018 8:34 am

There seems to be a lot of Science, Imaging and Technology concepts popping up. I am trying to collect them all in a list - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LOVWD9__HYIVizLADWtVme77YxDcBOXcFhOcjXvbjoQ/edit?usp=sharing - feel free to add/edit as needed as I know I am missing a bunch.

I am also unfamiliar with a lot of the technology being mentioned, so thought a discussion place could be helpful. It seems like a number of visual/imaging concepts are popping up. Other themes?

Went in and filled in a few details around WorldMesh and PEQs.

Thanks - and now there is more with the 3rd Telex message. Shocked

For those of you who aren't following our missing friend on Twitter, she came across a letter claiming Isaac Newton actually discovered how to make Cometite - based on Telex #1, that's quite the commodity, as it can be distilled into "Suco" technology, and is a main source of power in jodhpur-land.

Volutron has come up twice now regarding broadcasting audio and video. One message said 3D audio broadcast, I assume without speakers, like the sound can just "exists" in whatever room you want. Another message indicated our 2D video screens were far inferior to Volutron image, which I assume is 3D also and again can be broadcast without a screen.

I assume a Volutron broadcast is 3D audio and 3D video that can just "exist" in any given space. If that's the case maybe we can intercept that broadcast with our advances in VR, AR and such.

(virtual reality (VR) augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and extended reality (XR) are the buzzwords I'm thinking of)

Rory mentioned a couple of items in an email that may connect to some of the other tech/science/alchemy topics.  And now I have lost buckets of time diving into this research hole and finding out so much I did not know (and still so much to learn).

Rory's Comments

Should something unfortunate happen, a thought to pursue: I am reliably informed that some time in the early 1690s, Isaac Newton and Edmond Halley were among the founding members of the Royal Alchemical Society. There were strict laws against alchemy at the time, so the society was necessarily secret. Newton and Halley famously collaborated on much of the science for which they are remembered - Halley's observations of planetary motion confirmed many of Newton's hypotheses. Less well known today is that Newton had an almost obsessive interest in matching astronomical phenomena against moments in world history. He wrote more than three times as much on this topic as on what we call his "scientific" work.

There is a rumor that he was particularly struck by Halley's work on the periodic return of bodies such as the comet that bears his name. Don't know why - or if - this might matter.

----

I researched a little and found a couple of maybe things?? Thoughts?  PS - I love open domain websites - could ya guess Wink

Isaac Newton's alchemical notes in the Royal Society - http://rsnr.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/60/1/25

Wikipedia - I know - but it has some links to follow - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton%27s_occult_studies

There is mention of  Newton’s Translation of the Emerald Tablet - could this have a connection?

And there is this - http://www.openculture.com/2016/10/isaac-newtons-recipe-for-the-mythical-philosophers-stone-is-being-digitized.html  and http://www.livescience.com/54162-newton-recipe-for-philosophers-stone-rediscovered.html

Newton and the end of the world?  Smile  http://www.openculture.com/2015/10/in-1704-isaac-newton-predicts-the-world-will-end-in-2060.html  and https://publicdomainreview.org/collections/sir-isaac-newtons-daniel-and-the-apocalypse-1733/

http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/newton/ - includes the Newtonian Font and  symbol guide - http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/newton/reference/symbols.do  which came up in the Grunbaum Thread

And http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/newton/html/Newton_optics-alchemy_Jacquart_paper.pdf which connects OPTICS and Alchemy... which seems to be a distinct thread throughout this investigation

Uncertain of the validity of this but it looks interesting - https://www.thenewatlantis.com/publications/the-strange-tale-of-newtons-papers

Letter from Newton to Halley (and there is more text at this site - I love reading letters)  - http://www.newtonproject.ox.ac.uk/view/texts/normalized/NATP00276

Excerpt from a book about the Halley/Newton correspondence  [url=https://goo.gl/QV4WA3[/url]

And then the Halley stuff (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/newton/principia.html as a light start and then it goes deeper and darker from there)  and links and I have even more research - whew that is a deep hole Wink

Oh - from my continuing research dive, is anyone familiar with Newton's Clockwork Universe?

Man, that's a lot of stuff there. I just don't know that I would ever be able to read into all of that.

I think Newton might be a separate enough topic to be moved to a separate thread/document

Tried to see how much of this Rory knew - seems he's on a bit of a road trip with Charity and our Yugoslavian friend! Got the following response when I was trying to check in on the cometite connection:

Rory Enright wrote:
Actually on the road with a yugoslavian, but he's not too chatty just now. Might try lobbing a few questions about cometite into the conversation, but I suspect my passenger is, ah, professionally untalkative.

Don't know if you have a science background, but the point of E=mc2 is that very, very tiny amounts of matter are equivalent to very, very large amounts of energy. Meaning, the difference between, ah, *calling yugoslavia* as i think I have done, and *going* to yugoslavia is ***staggering***.  The second would imply access to a stupendous amount of energy, a national or international effort on the order of the moonshot ... or possibly both.

OK, barista finally fixed a couple of late night espressos. More driving ahead.

UPDATE: just saw the new video. If it takes a lot of power to cross over, and they're heading to Oak Ridge Tennessee (home of the Manhattan Project), this could get interesting.

I can understand Rory's motivation for going to Laminar (finding Brian), but nothing has indicated to me that Michael's mission here (whatever that might be) is completed. Leaving Charity in Seattle, alone and possibly in danger, seems like motivation to not send himself back, especially when Michael has said he would lay down his life to protect her and her family.

If the Bowlers were coming for Charity (based on her description of her encounter), what did they want and why? If it was to get to Michael, then perhaps him leaving is a good thing. If there is something else... then not so good.

Regarding the mention of heading to Oak Ridge Tennessee (home of the Manhattan Project) earlier - going through the secret twitter account of the person who has the Grail - she mentioned Tennessee too. That is where she encountered the Bowlers.....
