It gets dark by 4 pm here at this time of year so I am pretty knackered due to lack of daylight (SAD) it doesn’t get light until after 8 am, the very shortest day is only about 20 minutes shorter so it really is my least favorite time of year. We have had a lot of snow so during the day it is lovely especially when it’s clear as it’s so amazingly bright. I wrote this back in 2013
My father-in-law was a mobile combine harvester engineer and was telling me about a client who grows Malt 10 hours drive North of Stockholm. The planting season is Late May-early June, The Snow goes around the second week of May and is back some time in October. But he plants and harvests along with his neighbors several thousand acres most years ( Last Year the Snow beat the Harvest window.) The point being there is 22 hrs of Sunlight in June July August September. This made me think about the Solar energy implications in a linked system Nothern and southern hemispheres. Obviously, it’s an interesting example of how our pre-disposed notions of what is possible can be challenged?
With the marvels of the natural world , advances in Materials Science and appliend materials science and technology it is time to start questioning the notion that there can be such a thing as “Data Science” The church of the “Singularity” is abley deconstructed by James Corbett here;
WHAT IS THE TRANS AGENDA? – QUESTIONS FOR CORBETT
The show’s title comes from an old English nursery rhyme:
I’ll tell you a story
About Jack a Nory,
And now my story’s begun;
I’ll tell you another
Of Jack and his brother,
And now my story is done.
The rhyme was first recorded in the publication The Top Book of All, for little Masters and Misses, which appeared about 1760.
Why this Eric Dollard lecture is so important is that it makes two very important points about Magnetic Fields and Electric Currents.
The first is that Electricity does not flow through or within a copper wire or whatever material it is conducted “((Through(sic), Around))” conductor, it flows or propagates around them bounded by the insulator field, the other is that an electric current always flows precisely at right angles to the field
“The Forgotten part of Maxwell’s Work
concerns two types of waves one
is transverse okay a transverse wave is
like waves on the surface of the ocean
okay there has to be a boundary and the
motion of the matter or the ether or
whatever deal you’re dealing with
there’s always at right angles to where
the wave is going okay ”
Dollard’s story is a remarkable one this lecture represents his life’s work in putting together the fragments of Nicola Tesla’s work.
The above Empirical fact regarding electromagnetism explains I would submit this. That is Eulers Number.
