The Gitter

March 26th, 2020 Comments off

Note! Before reading this text you must accept and embrace the ideas of democracy, freedom of speech, the belief that rationality, science and the pursuit of truth are essential to the human endeavour.

And that you will under no circumstance use any part of this text in order to deny, question or defame the self-evident correctness of Charles Darwin’s theory. Never. If I hear, read or get in close contact with the wording: revisionist?

Physics lessons later… it’s called infraction (I think). The black lines including the “shadows” were not actually visible at the time when the picture was taken. It has to do with wavelength among other things.

The light source is LED and the capture is digital (my phone camera). The source is much more uniform than say a lit candle, match or glowing cigarette. The light spectrum is different, it is much narrower.

It is the “cold” light that most observe, the digital camera can capture that difference felt by most. The light feels “cold, that’s probably because there are some bits and pieces of our visible spectrum missing.

Most insects and sea living creatures have a completely different visible spectrum. For example Mantis shrimp can perceive wavelengths of light ranging from deep ultraviolet (UVB) to far-red (300 to 720 nm), that is, infrared and polarized light.

If you were a shrimp and peeked at the sky and ordinary day?

The shrimps perception of the World is radically different from any of us humans’ and bizarrely advanced. We have machines that can do that, but naturally, continuously and in parallel? I always and still until this day wonder how do we now for a fact what shrimps do and do not see?

The unanswered (according to me) questions existing in Charles Robert Darwin’s The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life theory published on 24 November 1859 are clearly visible here (sorry).

The extreme specializations, plain exaggerations versus [system] optimization? The shear number of species is in itself not/never explained.

It is unsystematic and thereby problematic, because there may lay a hidden long sought after indirect proof in the theory itself of something all together different.

There are temporal problems as well.

– Why would a crustacean, a shrimp develop the most advanced visual system that we know of?

– It is an evolutionary advantage.

– That is not an answer to my question.

Deep ultraviolet (UVB) to far-red (300 to 720 nm) and polarized light! The most advanced visual apparatus on the entire planet belongs to a species of crustacean, a shrimp?

We build highly specialised and complex equipment: telescopes, satellites and other stuff in order to study the universe and shrimp are born with the ability to do the exact same thing, simultaneously? That is just… insane.

– What about optimization? Deep ultraviolet to infrared and polarized light? A shrimp?

– It’s habitat and hey, they’re superfast and they can’t detect X-rays (yet)?

– There is something really, really fishy going on right here…

To a seeing entity the ones seeing other things must be the most extreme thing? Bats, dolphins and others “see” sound (echo-location) and the deep sea living creatures that never see the light of day ever… what about them and what about the concept of “reality”?

Hopper With A Camera?

However, I can assure and reassure each and everyone that it most definitely not Edward Hopper (1882-1967) with a camera. I know that for a fact. However, there are matching dates though.

They Are Also Emitting Photons

March 24th, 2020 Comments off


  
My current workhorse was once a throw-away a discarded machine. I collected another specimen not long ago. And now it is in full working order; fitted with a disc that was recently homeless. As were my bike*, headphones and countless of routers, cables and switches.

Keep the key parts and then refit them and make the machine come to life again. It is as gratifying as it is fun.

– Will this actually work? You’ll have to try to find out.

* My bike is not emitting photons at all and nor are my headphones, there are no light sources on them. Neither of them are fitted with Light Emitting Diods or LED:s for short.

It Is Emitting Photons

March 24th, 2020 Comments off


  
Q01: Why would you throw away a fully functioning thing to begin with?

Q02: Why would throw away anything that has not been used ever?

Q03: Why would you throw an unused LED light bulb*, in its original packaging, in the trash**?

* It is emitting photons and making light and that is the sole function of this artefact. Please see the picture above. In the trash. The waste upsets me.

** The lack of light for reading is hampering the education of millions of children in the World. Why? well, very few people or none can read in complete darkness – apart from those who know Braille… The only thing they rest of us need is a light bulb and some power.

Prata Med MIn Advokat

March 21st, 2020 Comments off

– If that would be the case I would simply say. ‘Prata Med Min Advokat’.
– Here is the business card, just call the number and state your concern.

That’s the original quote and it is decidedly much more amusing in Swedish* than it is in English (it translates to: ‘Talk to my lawyer’). Which in turn would entail: call my Lawyer. The rest? I for sure am not telling anything about anything. Call my Lawyer?

* I changed the title from English to Swedish. You simply would not say that in Swedish or in any event you did not use to say something like that. I kind of like it.

Vart Är Den Andra Fjärrkontrollen (För I Helvete)? Eller Bara Riktiga Män Sitter Med Benen I Kors

Impossible musicality man. Any day and every day. There’s just nothing like it, there’s R.Funcken and there’s…Roel Funcken. It is just unbelievable. Texture and layers upon layers, upon lsyers that is more than 20 years of listening. I was supposed to do something important? Time stopped, again? Accio Niffler is running away! And now I’m crying?! Again… I was supposed to do something important…

“- It is construed. The musique.”
“- You don not honestly believe/mean that?”
“- It is the work of a genius and it doesn’t get better than this. You know that right?”

It’s even better than ever… better than 2000. FUNCKARMA. God damn it!
