It's Tuesday.

Hope all is well in FL...

I have to choose cherries.

12 of them?

14.  There's a whole bag.  But it is at least three weeks old.  Cherries, how long do they last?

I have this industrial cherry pitter, and earlier this week in the wee hours, it hopped onto the kitchen floor all by itself, apparently.  I heard it, and there was nothing around it.  It is spring loaded, but was still in the box.  It is not a lightweight thing that the A/C could toss onto the floor.  Poltergeists, probably.

I have had no time to do any writing or even thinking about spacetime zero. Work has been overwhelming.

I have a fresh Cherry Beam, but I won't post a picture, we've all seen it.

So, you're interested?  I've been trying to work on it in the mornings or at evening when it is cooler outside, so I can write or read outside.  Had to do some backgrounding on space-time writeups, such as from Feynman.  He does state that some of his info comes from Einstein's relativity, with Lorentzian space and time contraction and mass increases as the speed of something moving somewhere with respect to something else gets close to the speed of light.  It's all very well and good, and sure Michelson-Morley did not detect an ether wind, and luckily so or it would have all blown away by now, but it seems that all the Einstein/Lorentzian twin-paradox stuff &c is based on the speed of light.  I'm sure glad they didn't use the speed of sound, or of a train or something, since it will take a lot longer to travel the speed of light and see if all those early theories were balderdash, or if it is all true.

Sounds lovely.

I had to get up for an 8AM meeting and the one guy in India who had to be there decided not to show.

We're getting some awesome weather--in the 60s with bright blue skies. The leaves are beginning to change a bit.

I still have to give it a more detailed read and really conceptualize the idea of finding a single point in space. I was thinking that it could be at some intersection of cosmic phenomenon...like pulsars or something. With the knowledge that these will change with time. But I need to set time aside to really think about it.

Or extra-dimensional beings phased into existence, causing the box to fall.

I had TRVL on during the day and they had yet another Bigfoot show on, which was pretty interesting.

Apparently, 70 years ago all residents of a remote Alaskan town evacuated after the murders of quite a few people. They said that "giants" were kidnapping people and eating them. Anyway, the town has been abandoned ever since. Until now...

The difference being that they are not spirits but some other form of simultaneously-existing life.

I have two physical air-pressure meters here, one circular one, one made out of glass.

Something like:

about 1.5' x 1.5' by 8"  A breadbox of the right proportions would suit Bob.

PSA: It turns out that the four strings of a baritone ukulele are tuned to exactly the same as the top 4 strings on a guitar, D-G-B-E.  And regular ukes are tuned similarly, except at a different pitch.  So if you ever get to play a ukulele, and already know how to play guitar, it should be a cinch.

People should make music by manipulating spacetime sausages in VR with haptic gloves in a 3D (well 4D) matrix of possible notes.  As time flies by, the notes look like they are extruded into space.  You can view or adjust the spacetime sausages.
