SCENE SEEN

   SCENE SEEN We live in just a few frames of the film that tells the epic tale of existence, and, through careful study of our moment, we believe we can grasp the whole picture. Maybe, assuming the plot’s logical and our faith (founded in cause and effect) is unerring, we can work out the […]

TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN

   TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN   They operate contrary to the rules of common sense that we hold dear as proof that what we know is right, that we’re no fools and senses we possess perceive the truth. They ramble through eleven dimensions. Their motions, seemingly governed by chance, confuse and amend our comprehensions […]

TIME’S ARCHERY

TIME’S ARCHERY   Time’s passage changes with velocity and near a strong gravitational field. Mass and speed show full reciprocity — their equivalence now clearly revealed.

If something interesting is being done, Time will slow down to sluggish minimum.   Do something noteworthy, like speed light-fast or amass a gravitational sphere, and Time will dawdle rather than rush past, as if […]

COLD COMFORT When life on this planet seems cumbersome and weighted with serious magnitude, delight dragged down by deep opprobrium, I pad into the kitchen for some food. In front of the refrigerator, I see tacked with tacky magnets your sweet face, in photographs that we took last July, and what was crushing becomes an […]

LONG-RANGE PLAN

  LONG-RANGE PLAN Another Earth, just twelve light years away, was found in our space telescopes today! Though what it looks like we can’t really say, we’re pretty sure that liquid water may exist upon its surface anyway. We can infer water’s liquidity due to its “Goldilocks” vicinity discerned through Einstein’s relativity, duration of periodicity […]
