    Hitler had different predilections .. which did not include Mendelssohn

    but Beethoven's 'Moon;ight Sonata" was OK.


    "Let me come with you. What a moon there is tonight!
    The moon is kind – it won’t show
    that my hair turned white.

    The moon will turn my hair to gold again.

    You wouldn’t understand.
    Let me come with you."
    from a Greek poet


    and how many of the LENR researchers

    have white hair or no hair..now?

    I think I will soon graduate to become one..

    they fond the source but thinks its a house

    til it ran down the road to pic up supply's

    back to hiding to show its a forest

    waiting 6 months for them all to be gone

    went for a walk and dam he was fond.

    away from the house away from the barn.

    white lap coat was slick hiding for waiting this long.

  • As I wandered lonely through the alps,

    I was repeatedly attacked,

    Not by a gaggle of buxom Helgas,

    But a fetid horde of Wyttenfacts!


    Manifested out of the thin air,

    Or pulled directly from the toosh,

    Recognising them is easy:

    Requesting evidence begets abuse.


    I mucked out the Augean stables,

    And heckled Sisyphus... the lazy twat,

    But even a herculean resolve is tested,

    By a torrent of pure Wyttenfact.


    Words are cheap and their value decreases,

    When one can spout whatever they please,

    I thought that wisdom should improve with age,

    Not be brought down to its knees.

    Paradoxical Ode

    A Response to Shelly


    My soul’s an amphicheiral knot

    Upon a liquid vortex wrought


    By Intellect in the Unseen residing

    While thou dost like a convict sit

    With marlinspike untwisting it


    Only to find my knottiness abiding,

    Since all the tools for my untying

    In four-dimensioned space are lying


    Where playful fancy intersperces,

    Whole avenues of universes;


    Where Klein and Clifford fill the void

    With one unbounded, finite homaloid,

    Whereby the Infinite is hopelessly destroyed.


    James Clerk Maxwell


    The "amphicheiral knot" (a trefoil knot), i.e. a knot that can be deformed into its mirror image...

  • Dedicated to my heroes, the inventors, free thinkers and solution seekers.


    Discovery


    It's of great use to wonder

    Why our minds wander

    In awe of it all


    Being forever true

    Seeking the new


    We are just now discovering

    That which has always been


    Impatienty awaiting us

    Craving our keen attention


    All along hoping for

    Just a little bit more

    Understanding


    Awesome is

    The wonder of discovery

    And the power of awe

    Abstract

    Amphicheiral knots with up to 12 crossings are discussed from the perspective of their symmetry properties. By use of an algorithm that involves the development of appropriate vertexbicolored knot graphs, rigidly achiral presentations have been found for all amphicheiral invertible prime knots with up to 10 crossings and for a selected number of such knots with 12 crossings, including 121944, the first example of an amphicheiral prime knot whoseS 2n diagram is also a reduced diagram. Characteristic properties of wire models of these presentations have been examined. The adjacency matrices of the vertex-bicolored graphs of amphicheiral knots exhibit twofold antisymmetry, and, with the sole exception of 12427, all such knots are capable of rigidly antisymmetric presentations.

    "Knots in the Nursery: (Cats) Cradle Song

    of James Clerk Maxwell" by Daniel S. Silver

    American Mathematical Society

    November 2014


    Maxwell's tìtle to Tait

    Cats Cradle Song,

    (By a Babe in Knots)


    Peter the Repeater,

    Platted round a platter

    Slips of slivered7paper,

    Basting them with batter.


    Flype ’em, slit ’em, twist ’em,

    Lop-looped laps of paper;

    Setting out the system

    By the bones of Neper.


    Clear your coil of kinkings

    Into perfect plaiting,

    Locking loops and linkings

    Interpenetrating.


    Why should a man benighted,

    Beduped, befooled, besotted,

    Call knotful knittings plighted,

    Not knotty but beknotted?


    It’s monstrous, horrid, shocking,

    Beyond the power of thinking,

    Not to know, interlocking

    Is no mere form of linkings


    But little Jacky Horner

    Will teach you what is proper,

    So pitch him, in his corner,

    Your silver and your copper.


    "Only to find my knottiness abiding,"

    from Paradoxical Ode


    A bit of Maxwell's knotiness history...

    from the article

    Quote

    Tait, aware of Maxwell’s mastery of the literature,asked his friend for comments about a draft of “On knots.”


    On June 30, Tait wrote to Maxwell:


    Would it bother you if I sent you the M.S.S. of

    my paper Knots prepared for Trans R.S.E.?

    If not I wish you would look it over. I have

    got so thoroughly on one groove that I fear I

    may be missing or unduly exalting something which will appear excessively simple to any one but myself. You are just the party to detect this.


    In the letter, Tait confessed that he was baffled about questions of linking:

    Here for instance, is one of my difficulties.

    What are we to call the “belinkedness” of

    the arrangement [Figure 1], where there is

    no linking at all & yet you can’t separate the

    rings? If you change any one sign [crossing] a ring comes off, but one degree of linkedness is introduced! This is neither Knot nor Link.

    What is it?


    The link that Tait described had once been

    favored by the sculptor Michelangelo, who used it (with the letter “M” ) to mark his stones. Its current name, “Borromean rings,” derives from its heraldic use by the Borromeo family of northern Italy.


    In his letter, Tait continued:

    The M.S.S. is with the printer, and I could

    have moved the Council R.S.E. to inflict it on

    you—but I don’t like to bother you unless

    you are pleased to be bothered. Neill says

    his type is at present all locked6 by Plarr’s &

    Milne Home’s papers so that you can have

    the M.S.S. for 3 weeks if you like.


    Whether Tait received any helpful comments from Maxwell is not clear. At the least, he got a poem. (Cats) Cradle Song appears in biographies both of Maxwell and Tait.

    Love

    Imagine as you will…


    Everyone is an instrument in a symphony


    Each playing notes


    Some melodious

    others discordant

    Each ringing true


    At first and then less often…


    The harmonies

    are elusive

    Unreproducible


    Yet strongly sustained!


    Leaving us curious…


    When it is heard the composition is magnificent!


    Through keen observation over time

    Improvements

    are seen


    In the instrumentalists and their orchestration…


    This certainly heartens


    Keen participation


    As it has you my friends


    Thanks for everything


    Tears

    and

    All

  • Listen Wisely


    Bats of silent wing

    Sound swift motions

    Soft air displacing

    Fearless notions


    At home in the night

    The way seen clear

    Without any light

    Echoes so dear


    Hearing all, they know

    Guided by ear

    A good path to go

    Never a fear


    Bats fly with a grace

    Born of listening

    So wisely in space

    True notes glistening
