Gravitational Limit

There's something I'm not getting about the gravitational limit. Why is that humans cannot explore space beyond the gravitational limit of the Tiamat-moon system but the DINGAR and the Cyclopeans could come and go as they pleased? Is the SM tech able to transcend this natural boundary? Until Part V,...

Pitch, Roll, and Yaw

Now that Barney has explained rotational operators, I won't try to roll my bronto-crane in three dimensions at the stone quarry ever again, and maybe Mr. Slate will give me my job back. https://s17-us2.ixquick.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=http%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.Mcf63181efe8eec24...

Re: --daniel on twitter

Extraordinary idea going on twitter. I've had this automatic aversion to all things twitter and fb, the same way I feel about "silly phones" (Eric Dollard's term), but enjoying daniel's recent posts has showed me it isn't the medium of delivery but the content that matters. Now is especially a good ...

Re: Heading to Salt Lake City for the gathering

I couldn't attend the gathering because traveling isn't something I can handle, physically and financially, but I sure am looking forward to reading any notes that are published here. I hoped to meet everyone, share ideas and swap stories with like-minded folks; maybe there will be another chance. I...

Re: The little people of northern Minnesota

If you want to know how to interact with the Little People, watch an old Disney film called Darby O'Gill and the Little People (starring Sean Connery). Darby (Albert Sharpe) does a superb job with his knowledge of their behaviors and idiosyncrasies. Thanks for that recommendation. What a great film...

Kepler-452b

I have tried to apply daniel's method of scaling down exoplanets to moons (as demonstrated in his paper "The Colonization of Tiamat") to Kepler-452b. Here is some of the data we've been given: http://iopscience.iop.org/1538-3881/150/2/56/article The orbital period of Kepler-452b is supposed to be ar...

Re: Space Travel: Science is Fiction?

I had always assumed beings could travel in space because the soul/anima is nonlocal to us (and because Star Trek couldn't possibly be mistaken), but your magnetic field analogy reeled me in on that. If a temporal field has a strength that weakens in space to zero at some distance away from the stro...

Re: The Mind Has No Firewall

The Seinfeld TV show is a favorite of so many people, and I've seen them all many times, but I can't watch them any more. In each episode, they go out of their way to make life hard for someone and that doesn't make me laugh anymore Same for me. I liked it during college, but not anymore. Although ...

Re: Humor

And you find the same with a lot of the Shakespearean comedians of the time, all with their particular style. George Burns (Jack Benny's best friend) with his deadpan, dry wit, Gracie Allen with "brilliant idiot" approach that made her world famous, Jackie Gleason, who had one of those faces that c...
