20 Aug 2018 Black Panther (movie), Dishwasher and outdoor chalk meditation with words and numbers

Hello.  I hope this finds you well wherever and whenever you are.  I’ve had a lot of places around the world on my mind and you will see them in my pictures today.  We finally got to see the Marvel movie Black Panther last night.  Our friend who has moved back home brought it over last night so we could see it.  I really enjoyed it.  It was refreshing for me to see African culture woven into a superhero story that speaks so loudly to the times we are in.  I was glad that they brought forth to give arms to the oppressed and set them out against their oppressors makes them no better. You just become what you hate and the cycle continues.  Just a different version of tyranny.  There are other ways to win these sort of wars and this story was told too.  Well done!

BLACK PANTHER Trailer 2 Extended) Marvel 2018

We have a dishwasher again!  Kyle’s parents purchased some new appliances and changed out the Miele they had.  It was still in excellent working so we said we’d take it.   We had bought a Whirlpool July of 2015 and it stopped working just after the warranty on it expired!  It’s curbside as I write.  May be someone who is into fixing things will pick it up and be able to get it operating again.  Our poor Link howled like a wolf for a couple of hours after they left!  He acts just like a toddler when he does that.  Just stands at the window and cries.

Yesterday afternoon I was, I want to say seized, by a meditation.  It started with a my drawing a young Indian (India) woman in water. I was thinking/praying about the flooding going on over there right now.  Things just went from there!  This is what happens to me once I get on a train of thought!  There is much here.  For many it will not resonate.  This is for those who enjoy the thought process and riddles numbers and words put together can produce!  This process can be quite enthralling.  It even got me into a bit of trouble this morning! I was doing this sort of thing instead of getting the dogs walked while Kyle got groceries!  Opps!

Alternative Title: Arabic numeral

Hindu-Arabic numerals, set of 10 symbols—1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0—that represent numbers in the decimal number system. They originated in India in the 6th or 7th century and were introduced to Europe through the writings of Middle Eastern mathematicians, especially al-Khwarizmi and al-Kindi, about the 12th century. They represented a profound break with previous methods of counting, such as the abacus, and paved the way for the development of algebra.

The Origin of the Alphabet


In Chinese: 字母表的起源 (translated by Liu Yu)

The original alphabet was developed by a Semitic people living in or near Egypt.*  They based it on the idea developed by the Egyptians, but used their own specific symbols.  It was quickly adopted by their neighbors and relatives to the east and north, the Canaanites, the Hebrews, and the Phoenicians.  The Phoenicians spread their alphabet to other people of the Near East and Asia Minor, as well as to the Arabs, the Greeks, and the Etruscans, and as far west as present day Spain.  The letters and names on the left are the ones used by the Phoenicians.  The letters on the right are possible earlier versions. If you don’t recognize the letters, keep in mind that they have since been reversed (since the Phoenicians wrote from right to left) and often turned on their sides!

‘aleph, the ox, began as the image of an ox’s head.  It represents a glottal stop before a vowel.  The Greeks, needing vowel symbols, used it for alpha (A).  The Romans used it as A.
Beth, the house, may have derived from a more rectangular Egyptian alphabetic glyph of a reed shelter (but which stood for the sound h). The Greeks called it beta (B), and it was passed on to the Romans as B.
Gimel, the camel, may have originally been the image of a boomerang-like throwing stick.  The Greeks called it gamma (Γ).  The Etruscans — who had no g sound — used it for the k sound, and passed it on to the Romans as C.  They in turn added a short bar to it to make it do double duty as G.
Daleth, the door, may have originally been a fish!  The Greeks turned it into delta (Δ), and passed it on to the Romans as D.
He may have meant window, but originally represented a man, facing us with raised arms, calling out or praying.  The Greeks used it for the vowel epsilon (E, “simple E”).  The Romans used it as E.
Waw, the hook, may originally have represented a mace.  The Greeks used one version of waw which looked like our F, which they called digamma, for the number 6.  This was used by the Etruscans for v, and they passed it on to the Romans as F.   The Greeks had a second version — upsilon (Υ)– which they moved to to the back of their alphabet.  The Romans used a version of upsilon for V, which later would be written U as well, then adopted the Greek form as Y.  In 7th century England, the W — “double-u” — was created.
Zayin may have meant sword or some other kind of weapon.  The Greeks used it for zeta (Z). The Romans only adopted it later as Z, and put it at the end of their alphabet.
H.eth, the fence, was a “deep throat” (pharyngeal) consonant.  The Greeks used it for the vowel eta (H), but the Romans used it for H.
Teth may have originally represented a spindle.  The Greeks used it for theta (Θ), but the Romans, who did not have the th sound, dropped it.
Yodh, the hand, began as a representation of the entire arm.  The Greeks used a highly simplified version of it for iota (Ι).  The Romans used it as I, and later added a variation for J.
Kaph, the hollow or palm of the hand, was adopted by the Greeks for kappa (K) and passed it on to the Romans as K.
Lamedh began as a picture of an ox stick or goad. The Greeks used it for lambda (Λ).  The Romans turned it into L.
Mem, the water, became the Greek mu (M).  The Romans kept it as M.
Nun, the fish, was originally a snake or eel.  The Greeks used it for nu (N), and the Romans for N.
Samekh, which also meant fish, is of uncertain origin.  It may have originally represented a tent peg or some kind of support.  It bears a strong resemblance to the Egyptian djed pillar seen in many sacred carvings.  The Greeks used it for xi (Ξ) and a simplified variation of it for chi (X).  The Romans kept only the variation as X.
‘ayin, the eye, was another “deep throat” consonant.  The Greeks used it for omicron (O, “little O”).  They developed a variation of it for omega (Ω, “big O”), and put it at the end of their alphabet.  The Romans kept the original for O.
Pe, the mouth, may have originally been a symbol for a corner.  The Greeks used it for pi (Π).  The Romans closed up one side and turned it into P.
Sade, a sound between s and sh, is of uncertain origin.  It may have originally been a symbol for a plant, but later looks more like a fish hook.  The Greeks did not use it, although an odd variation does show up as sampi (Ϡ), a symbol for 900.  The Etruscans used it in the shape of an M for their sh sound, but the Romans had no need for it.
Qoph, the monkey, may have originally represented a knot.  It was used for a sound similar to k but further back in the mouth.  The Greeks only used it for the number 90 (Ϙ), but the Etruscans and Romans kept it for Q.
Resh, the head, was used by the Greeks for rho (P).  The Romans added a line to differentiate it from their P and made it R.
Shin, the tooth, may have originally represented a bow.  Although it was first pronounced sh, the Greeks used it sideways for sigma (Σ).  The Romans rounded it to make S.
Taw, the mark, was used by the Greeks for tau (T).  The Romans used it for T.

The Greek letter phi (Φ) was already common among the Anatolians in what is now Turkey. Psi (Ψ) appears to have been invented by the Greeks themselves, perhaps based on Poseidon’s trident.  For comparison, here is the complete Greek alphabet:

* Until recently, it was believed that these people lived in the Sinai desert and began using their alphabet in the 1700’s bc.  In 1998, archeologist John Darnell discovered rock carvings in southern Egypt’s “Valley of Horrors” that push back the origin of the alphabet to the 1900’s bc or even earlier.  Details suggest that the inventors were Semitic people working in Egypt, who thereafter passed the idea on to their relatives further east.

 

From this morning!  I just want to stress that this is my interpretation of things, not anyone else’s.  Some may look at what I’m sharing and not agree or see things I don’t – even deeper.  I don’t know if there is a “right” or “wrong” but just different….that is where perception comes in.  We are each biologically incapable of perceiving life and what it is exactly the same way.  This goes for any life form on the planet – we were each given our own “car” to drive be it a fly or a human.

Zero = 64/10/1

One = 34/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (first time 7 and 8 appears)

Three = 56/11/2/1 (first time 11 appears)

Four = 60/6/3 cycle

Five = 42/6/3 cycle (60 + 42 = 102 = 3 cycle and 4 + 5 = 9 cycle)

Six = 52/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Seven = 65/11/2/1 (when I see this is see two individuals in 11 that become 2 that become 1. 7 and 11 came up a lot in catastrophes I was puzzling out)

Seven Deadly Sins = 177/15/6/3 cycle (when you add up the numeric values of pride (52), covetousness (191), lust (72), anger (45), gluttony (134), envy (66) and sloth (74) you get 634/13 – taking us back to 2 either of self, perception or two separate people)

Catastrophe = 126/9 cycle

Eight = 49/13/4/2/1 (62, the value of Ate – the value of Eight 49 = 13! Interesting!)

Ate = 62/8/4/2/1 (Interesting that the word we use to describe consumption (159) both sounds like and comes to the value of the number 8.)

Eat = 26/8/4/2/1

Nine = 42/6/3 cycle

No = 29/11/2/1

Know = 63/9 cycle (Interesting that this word would equal the number value of the word Nine)

Nein (German for No) = 42/6/3 cycle

Ten = 39/12/3 cycle

Eleven = 63/9 cycle (Eleven seems to have come up a lot with Seven yesterday)

Twelve = 87/15/6/3 cycle

Teen = 44/8/4/2/1

Thirteen = 99/18/9 cycle (such a ominous number, takes us back to Two)

Fourteen = 104/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Fifteen = 65/11/2/1 (Interesting this is the same value as Seven)

Sixteen = 96/15/6/3 cycle

Seventeen = 109/10/1

(The following are a couple that came to me to number out this morning)

Disease = 62/8/4/2/1 (interesting how disease and cancer both come to 8)

Alzheimer’s = 116/8/4/2/1 (Interesting seeing 8 in conditions that involve eating)

Dementia = 71/8/4/2/1

Memory Loss = 154/10/1 (A person in a 9 cycle if you look at 154! Memory=89 Loss = 65)

Cancer = 44/8/4/2/1 (There’s that 8, ate again)

Heart disease = 114/6/3 cycle (this makes sense to me that conditions of the heart would be cyclic and or reaccuring)

Cardiovascular = 147/12/3 cycle (the heart pumps blood, makes sense it would be a cycle)

Diabetes = 65/11/2/1 (same value as Seven again!)

Mental illness = 155/11/2/1 (Mental= 65 and Illness = 90 which is a 9 cycle)

highly sensitive person = 278/17/8/4/2/1

Empath = 63/9 cycle (it isn’t always a positive thing to be such a person)

Empathy = 88/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Cure = 47/11/2/1 (Interesting that cardiovascular has a 47 in it too. A lot of what ails us has origins in the heart)

Heart = 52/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (There’s 7 again! I see a deciding what we eat, think and feel that brings us back to self and to God – to health)

Health = 54/9 cycle (Maintaining our health is a cycle but actually staying healthy seems to be a decision on our part)

Healthy = 79/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (to this aligns with values for the Heart)

dishwasher = 114/6/3 cycle (Couldn’t help but put this one in there lol!  It is a seemingly never ending cycle isn’t it?!)

Miele (Italian word for Honey) = 44/8/4/2/1

 

Black Panther = 111/3 cycle (interesting if you have seen the movie!)

Cat = 24/6/3 cycle

Leopard = 71/8/4/2/1 (the family a black panther is from)

spots = 89/17/8/4/2/1 (notice how 17, reverse of the 71 in leopard is in this word.  Leopards have spots, even the black ones)

Immortality = 155/11/2/1 (interesting how this lines up with the numbers in Black Panther)

Immortal = 101/2/1 (Same number for the dreaded room in Orson Welles 1984!)

18 Aug 2018 “With a Thought” (Drawings)

Hello – hope this finds you well in your present moment.  This post is exploring some things that may or may not interest you.  I have had some interesting thoughts pass through with my drawings.  May be something here will resonate.  Thank you for taking the time to stop by!  The abyss that is now the internet is vast.  One can easily get lost within it!

Interesting how often this “grid” is coming into my thoughts.  This is an excerpt from a dream I had 14 May 2017 that involved the grid image for one of the first times.

https://saymber.com/2017/05/14/14-may-2017-mothers-day-birthday-wishes-pergola-demolition-dream-about-traveling-in-space-and-drawings/

“So the dream that woke me up this morning was pretty cool.  I guess my mind’s way of processing all these thoughts I’ve been having about particles and life.  Well in the dream I was traveling in space and it was like a black and white grid.  We actually “went off grid” and beyond what was charted or known.  Something about a ship “picking me up” (the round cell shaped ship) that was free-floating and if you passed through it, you were on a new ship.  I encountered life forms that were just light and colors.  To the person in the dream they were kind of annoying as they “poured in” through rainbow light and had voices but it was hard to understand them.  There was a blonde woman who was very mature but wasn’t very old that was a “life-form.”  I can remember seeing her talking, she was shy but don’t know what she said.”

Numbers in the Words:

“With a thought two become one” = 295/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (This is a phrase that came to me before bed when I was thinking about the drawings of the day.  Without really thinking about it I had drawn 16 lines for my grid.  It’s enormously pleasing and fulfilling to have these sorts of experiences.

Point of Singularity = 250/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Singularity = 155/11/2/1 (still ended up divided in parts)

Image result for point of singularity

In the center of a black hole is a gravitational singularity, a one-dimensional point which contains a huge mass in an infinitely small space, where density and gravity become infinite and space-time curves infinitely, and where the laws of physics as we know them cease to operate.

Singularities – Black Holes and Wormholes – The Physics of the Universe

The Sum of Two = 165/12/3 cycle (This made me chuckle, it take two to make a third.  In my mind, even when you are making something on your own it’s still “two.”  You are a co-creator working with creation (the creator) to manifest something into reality.)

Symmetry = 138/12/3 cycle

Dark Matter = 111/3 cycle

Matter = 77/14/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Material =79/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 – 8/4/2/1

Mass = 52/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

atom = 49/13/4/2/1

particle = 84/12/3 cycle

dust = 64/10/1

ash = 28/10/1

soil = 55/10/1

void =50/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (interesting how matter and void values match up)

gravity = 102/3 cycle

infinity = 106/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (interesting how it comes back to one, not a cycle)

perpetuity = 155/11/2/1 (interesting how this word, contrary to the definition we’ve given it, doesn’t mean forever either)

Perpetuity | Definition of Perpetuity by Merriam-Webster

The word derives ultimately from the Latin adjective perpetuus (“continual” or “uninterrupted”), which is also the source of our perpetual and perpetuate. It frequently occurs in the phrase “in perpetuity,” which essentially means “forever” or “for an indefinitely long period of time.”

perspective = 138/12/3 cycle

perception = 121/4/2/1

eight = 49/13/4/2/1 (when written is the infinity symbol on it’s side, it isn’t an indefinite cycle either)

one = 34/7 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

alone = 47/11/2/1

The Grid = 71/8/4/2/1

forever = 89/17/8/4/2/1 (Again, doesn’t the word and the meaning we’ve given it doesn’t coincide with what the numbers say about it! Forever and most the words like it must measure up to an individuals person’s own interpretation and perspective (a word which ironically DOES have a 3 cycle).  A second can feel both like forever or no time at all depending on who is experiencing it.   

 

17 Aug 2018 Growing pains (Alvarado TX), drawings and dream about black smoke (Severe Storms Show off their “Plume-age” – NASA)

(Yesterdays drawings)

Hello to you.  How are you?!  It’s Friday here as I write to you, about 7:52 am.  We made the mistake of attempting to walk Link and Spot before 7:30 am.  With school having started there are folks walking to and waiting for the school buses, people driving there kids and themselves to school….a bit chaotic.  If it’s hard for me, I can’t imagine how difficult it is for Link and Spot with their heightened senses of hearing and smell.  So we put a note on our door so we don’t make the same mistake everyday lol.  If it was just Kyle and I it wouldn’t be so bad but the dogs don’t handle humans in smaller packaging very well!  Nobody looked very happy that we saw.  I said a prayer for them as I watched the filing on to the bus – “I hope you have a good day oh and be nice to each other!”

Alvarado is growing and there are a lot of things we need to get worked out as this is happening.  I think once the construction in the housing addition is completed we will finally be in a place to do that.  When Kyle and I were still going to City Council meetings we told them something is going to have to be done about North Cummings as they were considering more development.  North Cummings is the road behind our house and one of the main arteries for the neighborhoods around us.  We told them they needed to make another exit for the new addition but they didn’t choose to do that.  Now all the roads are really tore up and congested!  You can’t just keep putting more traffic on a single lane road and not expect there aren’t going to be problems!  Alvarado is right in the middle of Dallas and Ft Worth TX.  We thought it would take longer before those cities started to spread out to us, but such is not the case and it’s only been about 9 years!  The noise is so bad at times I’ve resorted to wearing ear plugs!  Growth is good but you have to be strategic about it and have vision to avoid the mistakes so many other places have made.  You have to think about the quality of life of the people you already have living in a place before profit margins.

changing gears…….

I had an interesting dream before waking that I know was triggered by seeing a NASA article I am sharing with you.  The dream was about staying in a village.  I was in an old house looking out an upstairs window.  I could see an old man standing in a plowed field and it looked like a black clouded storm was going to blow over the man while he was working.  He stayed in the field and when the cloud reached him it seemed to become like black smoke and flowed over him.  He bent down into the cloud of smoke and disappeared.

Severe Storms Show off their “Plume-age”

Aug. 15, 2018

It’s not quite a smoking gun, but one could be forgiven for thinking of it that way: a distinctive cloud formation that often signals damaging storms below.

Easily identifiable in satellite imagery, the Above Anvil Cirrus Plume, or AACP, looks like a plume of smoke emanating out from the top of what, in all likelihood, is a serious storm.

“The plume pattern in the imagery instantly tells you without the need for radar or lightning observations or other information that these are the storms you really, really need to look out for,” said Kris Bedka, an atmospheric scientist at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

The plumes have been a frequent sight over the U.S. this summer as outbreaks of severe weather have raked across the Midwest, bringing high winds, tornadoes and hail with them.

Still image of plumes from North Dakota storms.

In this still image of the North Dakota storms, jet stream air collides with towering updrafts and forms U-shaped areas of cold temperatures shown in blue. The warmer plumes, which are represented by yellow tints, are visible traveling downstream.

​Bedka is studying the AACP phenomenon with colleagues at the University of Oklahoma. Their research is showing that compared to non-plumed storms, plumed storms are significantly more likely to produce high winds, major tornadoes and large hail. In addition, their findings could help weather forecasters provide earlier warnings of severe and tornadic storms not just in the U.S. but around the world.

There are also implications for climate.

“Plume signatures are not only useful for identifying potentially severe storms, but they also represent transport of ice and water vapor into the stratosphere,” said Elisa Murillo, a graduate student at the University of Oklahoma who has collaborated extensively with Bedka on AACP research. “Water vapor is a powerful greenhouse gas, and its presence in the stratosphere has strong impacts on climate.”

The Makings of a Plume

To understand why the plumes are such good indicators of severe weather, it helps to understand the conditions that generate them.

Typical thunderstorms top out at the tropopause, the boundary between the troposphere — the lowest part of Earth’s atmosphere — and the stratosphere. As storm-producing cumulonimbus clouds hit the tropopause their tops flatten out, giving them an anvil-like appearance.

Plumes form when intense updrafts puncture the tropopause and drag cloud tops up into the stratosphere with them. There, racing stratospheric jet-stream winds and powerful updrafts collide.

“You have wind flows exceeding 100 miles an hour at the jet-stream level running into this towering updraft,” said Bedka. “So jet-stream winds are forced to go around.”

As the jet-stream air collides with the updraft, it rises slightly and becomes colder, forming a U- or V-shaped area of cold temperatures.

Plumed storms over northeast Kansas and southern Nebraska

In May, these plumed storms over northeast Kansas and southern Nebraska produced numerous tornadoes, baseball-sized hail and 80 mph straight-line winds.

Credits: NASA

The collision between updraft and jet stream also causes a ripple effect and transports cirrus cloud ice downstream to form the plume. Plumes are typically warmer than the underlying anvil cloud because they mix with the air in the stratosphere where temperature warms with height.

Where there’s Smoke…

Over the course of their research, Bedka and his colleagues identified hundreds of plumed storms over the U.S. using highly detailed imagery collected at one-minute intervals by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite System, specifically GOES-14 and GOES-16. They then determined when the plumes first formed, how long they lasted and when they decayed.

Next, they linked that satellite data to radar and lightning data from the same storms. They also compared the timing of plume formation to when severe weather actually occurred and when severe weather warnings were issued by the National Weather Service. What they found was significant.

“We found about 400 plume-producing storms across 13 severe weather outbreaks,” said Bedka, “and in about 100 of them you had a plume appearing 10 minutes before the first warning, potentially providing additional lead time for saving lives and property.”

In a few storms that lead time stretched out even further to about 30 minutes.

The plume-producing storms also generated 14 times more severe weather events per storm than storms without plumes. In addition, 88 percent of EF-2 or greater tornadoes and 86 percent of 2-inch-plus hail reports came from plume-producing storms.

“Identifying this plume feature can be paired with radar observations, routinely available here in the U.S., to improve our warning capabilities,” said Murillo. “In many places across the world where radar data are not as accessible, early identification of AACPs can help improve warnings and severe weather preparedness.”

Hail, Hail the Cirrus Plume

In terms of cost, storms that drop hail — often storms of the plumed variety — are the most significant.

According to the National Weather Service, hail did $1.7 billion in damage in the U.S. in 2017 — more than all the damage from lightning, tornadoes and thunderstorm winds combined.

If they’re big enough, hailstones can shatter glass, dent metal, break shingles and mangle crops. A plumed storm over the Cordoba region of Argentina in February 2018 produced hailstones more than 7 inches in diameter. Hail more than 8 inches in diameter has been recorded over Nebraska and South Dakota in recent years.

Though these extreme hail events are rare, Bedka and colleagues hope their research might add a new dimension to the prediction of the severe storms that generate the most dangerous, expensive weather. They’re already collaborating with other scientists to develop an algorithm to automatically detect plumes in satellite imagery.

“The combination of new satellite information such as that from GOES-16 with radar and lightning observations collected from the ground provides an unprecedented package to unravel and provide advance warning of these complex storms,” said Bedka.

Bedka and his colleagues published their findings in a study available in early online release through the American Meteorological Society’s Weather and Forecasting journal.

NASA spacecraft rockets toward sun for closest look yet

NASA Launches First Ever Solar Probe To ‘Touch The Sun’

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A NASA spacecraft rocketed toward the sun Sunday on an unprecedented quest to get closer to our star than anything ever sent before.

The Parker Solar Probe will fly straight through the wispy edges of the corona, or outer solar atmosphere, that was visible during last August’s total solar eclipse. It eventually will get within 3.8 million (6 million kilometers) of the sun’s surface, staying comfortably cool despite the extreme heat and radiation, and allowing scientists to vicariously explore the sun in a way never before possible.

No wonder scientists consider it the coolest, hottest mission under the sun, and what better day to launch to the sun than Sunday as NASA noted.

“Fly baby girl, fly!!” project scientist Nicola Fox of Johns Hopkins University tweeted just before liftoff. She urged it to “go touch the sun!”

Protected by a revolutionary new carbon heat shield and other high-tech wonders, the spacecraft will zip past Venus in October. That will set up the first solar encounter in November. Altogether, the Parker probe will make 24 close approaches to the sun on the seven-year, $1.5 billion undertaking.

For the second straight day, thousands of spectators jammed the launch site in the middle of the night as well as surrounding towns, including 91-year-old astrophysicist Eugene Parker for whom the spacecraft is named. He proposed the existence of solar wind — a steady, supersonic stream of particles blasting off the sun — 60 years ago.

It was the first time NASA named a spacecraft after someone still alive, and Parker wasn’t about to let it take off without him. Saturday morning’s launch attempt was foiled by last-minute technical trouble.

“I’m just so glad to be here with him,” said NASA’s science mission chief, Thomas Zurbuchen. “Frankly, there’s no other name that belongs on this mission.”

A last-minute technical problem Saturday delayed NASA’s unprecedented flight to the sun. Rocket maker United Launch Alliance said it would try again Sunday, provided the helium-pressure issue can be resolved quickly. Once on its way, the Parker probe will venture closer to our star than any other spacecraft. (Bill Ingalls/NASA via AP) The Delta IV Heavy rocket thundered into the pre-dawn darkness, thrilling onlookers for miles around. NASA needed the mighty 23-story rocket, plus a third stage, to get the diminutive Parker probe — the size of a small car and well under a ton — racing toward the sun.

From Earth, it is 93 million miles to the sun (150 million kilometers), and the Parker probe will be within 4 percent of that distance. That will be seven times closer than previous spacecraft.

Parker will start shattering records this fall. On its very first brush with the sun, it will come within 15.5 million miles (25 million kilometers), easily beating the current record set by NASA’s Helios 2 spacecraft in 1976. By the time Parker gets to its 22nd orbit of the sun, it will be even deeper into the corona and traveling at a record-breaking 430,000 mph (690,000 kilometers per hour).

Nothing from Planet Earth has ever hit that kind of speed.

Even Fox has difficulty comprehending the mission’s derring-do.

“To me, it’s still mind-blowing,” she said. “Even I still go, really? We’re doing that?”

Zurbuchen considers the sun the most important star in our universe — it’s ours, after all — and so this is one of NASA’s big-time strategic missions. By better understanding the sun’s life-giving and sometimes violent nature, Earthlings can better protect satellites and astronauts in orbit, and power grids on the ground, he noted. In today’s tech-dependent society, everyone stands to benefit.

With this mission, scientists hope to unlock the many mysteries of the sun, a commonplace yellow dwarf star around 4.5 billion years old. Among the puzzlers: Why is the corona hundreds of times hotter than the surface of the sun and why is the sun’s atmosphere continually expanding and accelerating, as the University of Chicago’s Parker accurately predicted in 1958?

“The only way we can do that is to finally go up and touch the sun,” Fox said. “We’ve looked at it. We’ve studied it from missions that are close in, even as close as the planet Mercury. But we have to go there.”

The spacecraft’s heat shield will serve as an umbrella, shading the science instruments during the close, critical solar junctures. Sensors on the spacecraft will make certain the heat shield faces the sun at the right times. If there’s any tilting, the spacecraft will correct itself so nothing gets fried. With a communication lag time of 16 minutes each way, the spacecraft must fend for itself at the sun. The Johns Hopkins flight controllers in Laurel, Maryland, will be too far away to help.

A mission to get close up and personal with our star has been on NASA’s books since 1958. The trick was making the spacecraft small, compact and light enough to travel at incredible speeds, while surviving the sun’s punishing environment and the extreme change in temperature when the spacecraft is out near Venus.

“We’ve had to wait so long for our technology to catch up with our dreams,” Fox said. “It’s incredible to be standing here today.”

More than 1 million names are aboard the spacecraft, submitted last spring by space enthusiasts, as well as photos of Parker, the man, and a copy of his 1958 landmark paper on solar wind.

“I’ll bet you 10 bucks it works,” Parker said.

11 Aug 2018 One drawing sort of day

This afternoon was about rain and a lot of it – what a blessing!  Our yard out back is finally starting to heal.  What happens to the expansive clay soil we live on reminds me of how my hands crack, split and bleed when they get too dry.  The healing balm of rain has been applied with wonderful results!

I baked a white cake (box mix as I haven’t found a white cake recipe I like yet) and some bread from scratch.  Baking bread can be very therapeutic – the kneading part especially!  I figured since I couldn’t really be outside like I normally do I may as well do something productive.  I’ve been inspired by our watching The Great British Baking Show.  We finished Season 1 just today.  We love to watch these types of shows because they are positive and even in this instance, educational!  We’ve seen cakes made that defy reality – 20 tiny layers of cake in one?!  Or this:

Kugelhopf Cakes

A Kugelhopf Cake is a German yeast-risen sweet, rich bread baked in a special fluted tube pan called a Kugelhopf pan. There will be nuts, candied fruits and raisins or currants in the dough.

Looking forward to the next season.  I find I get so attached to people in shows like this lol!  It’s always sad to see them go.

10 Aug 2018 Simple Reminder, Dreams and Hot Glue and Aluminum Pyramid

Hello to you in your here and now as you visit me here.  Thank you for taking the time.  Hopefully visits here are part of the fulfillment aspect of your time in this life.

Time is an illusion with a face and moving hands.

So this morning I got teary, in a good way.  We were walking Link and Spot and our neighbor George came out to head to work.  We did a cheery exchange of how are you doings like we always do and then I said, “It’s a rough time for a lot of folks” and stopped and looked at me and said, “Is it?” and that made me pause and think, “I like that!” I said.  Positive thinking and faith in one phrase.  It’s hard times if you believe it and if you focus your thoughts on the difficulties and not the blessings.  He said, “We got rain” and I said, “I was out playing in it too, grateful to God for that!”

As we walked away, I felt myself tearing up at this simple exchange.  It was a reminder.  My sharing this isn’t to say or negate the fact that life isn’t difficult for too many people.  It’s about mindfulness and empowerment – mastering the struggles you are facing on your terms.

Profound quote I found this morning that I had never seen/read before:

See the source image

I didn’t have a very restful sleep again last night, part of the reason I’m more easily triggered emotionally.  I had a couple of weird/troubling dreams.  The first dream was of an Asian woman and something about being put in a brothel against her will.  The second was of a woman with blonde hair put up on her head.  She was wearing a red gown with straps.  She almost looked like Sissy Spacek in the movie Carrie (Carrie’s dress started out white).  The woman had a long tan arms and there was a red welt on one of them.  I don’t know if the welt was a sore or from an injection.  She was struggling against someone or something.  Then all the sudden she was wrapped in this white latex and looked like one of the featureless wisp people in my drawings.  She had a crown of the same white material attached to her head.  Then she was put into what looked like a sarcophagus or casing of some kind.  As I watched this happening in my dream, it was like she was going to live in it.

More weird from Jackie’s dream theater!  I have no idea where this stuff comes from.  Sometimes I wonder if I’m walking in someone else’s dream world or they have put their stuff in mine!  Most likely it’s just my brain putting together snippets of all the data I’ve been exposed to in my waking world and making a movie.  Sometimes I wish my mind would just move things directly to the cutting room floor!

 

8 Aug 2018 All One (chalk drawings) and The Feather

Hello!  Quite a few drawings today.  I was thinking about my seed ships idea again.  I was marveling at the shapes in the wispy clouds this afternoon.  I’m obviously easily amused LOL!  It’s the little things that fill in the spaces of a life and give it meaning.

This afternoon I added some coils and magnets to some the GANS/orgonite setup I have working and that was interesting.  I keep wanting to combine the work of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, Nikola Tesla and Mehran Keshe into one form.  It’s all about the same source in my mind.  I know realistically it’s probably not that simple, I’m not a scientist lol.  I’m walking on a well-worn field with my puzzling over energy.  I keep feeling it’s about energy from existing sources like water, the soil, man-made creations  and ambient sources like magnetic fields.  We know there is power in particles we can’t see it’s just finding a way to collect enough of them to create power sources that can fuel cars….spaceships.

To create energy without destroying ourselves doing it!  Current sources we use for energy all have negative side effects (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_impact_of_the_energy_industry) and make a few people a lot of money.  I feel like as soon as we can set aside profit margins and focus on working towards the greater good of all living kind we will get somewhere. Greed is a powerful adversary to progress!

Changing gears…..

I also had an interesting focusing lesson with a feather this afternoon.  Sometimes I will ask God energy what it wants to do with particular things in my yard just to see what the answer is for a blade of grass, a leaf etc.  Well I had picked up this feather and put in between my feet as I sat under our baby oak out back.  I asked God what the story was going to be with this feather.  So far it grew on a bird.  The bird had shed the feather in my yard.  After several days of noticing the feather, I finally picked it up and now it was between my feet.  What was next for the feather?!  Well it came to me to just focus on the feather and I did for what seemed the longest time – nada, nothing, no movement.  It seemed the feather was destined to stay on the step between my feet!

Well my concentration broke when I heard a noise like a bird or something moving over my head.  When I looked back for the feather it had flipped over and moved!  Just a second or two of broken concentration and we have feather sign lol.  Isn’t that like God?  A miracle when we aren’t looking for it?  An answer to a prayer when we are focused on the complicated prayer and not just letting God be God?!  For quite some time, as I had my talk with God.  The feather moved several times as we spoke and I was moved to tears.

I cry a lot when I pray/talk to God and it’s not always because I’m sad, it’s because of the love I feel in my heart.  A friend of mine had a great way to explain why people like her and I were quick to tear up about such things.  She said it’s because our spirits stick out more than other people’s do!  Such is the life of an Empath or anybody who cares a lot about this world and other people and wears their heart on their sleeve.

Sometimes I get very lonely.  Today with the help of a simple feather, I was reminded while I may be lonely I am never truly alone.

7 Aug 2018 We have to fix this – together

Hello.  Just a quick visit.  I did a bit of drawing this morning.  I seem to be on a theme of sorts with the “seats” of power.  The one I’m sharing was me imagining a being outside of our galaxy watching over this ol’ blue dot.  The other drawing is imagining the forces of light, shadow and the in between cradling our burning earth like a child while it screams for help.

These forces of energy are powerless to help fix what is happening all over the world right now.  We are literally burning!  The fix will have to come from all of us.  Unless I missed it, no one seems to be coming to save us from this mess we are currently in.  As much as I’d like a group of Superhero’s to come along and fix all of this, all that is just a big screen distraction from reality.  I think we are on our own!

Denial, obstruction, fear, greed and acting like nothing is happening will not make all this go away.  I feel like there are many who are playing “kick the can” with this.  What is happening to this planet is not “normal.”  I’ve been here 50 years and have watched the acceleration of this global climate change every year.  It feels like things are spiraling faster.  We don’t have time to keep putting this off to another generation.

I was going to go into what happened to the people of Chicago over the weekend, the horror of it, and I decided I would not give that horror power.  What I will give power to is the earth angels like the first responders, the police and fire departments, doctors, nurses, the hospital emergency room staff – all those that inherit what’s left after revenge, hatred, and senseless violence happens.  I will give my power and prayers to those left standing and struggling in these communities after something like this happens.   I will even pray for the fools who think violence is the cure for the cancers of hate in their hearts.  The people committing these acts were not born into this life carrying these tumors.

Dr. King said, ‘We are all tied together in a garment of mutual destiny.’ Which says to me no matter how well I may be doing in Hollywood, if a young brother or sister in Louisiana, the South Bronx, the South Side of Chicago, South Central Los Angeles – is not doing well, then I’m not doing very well.

31 July 2018 Todays chalk drawings

Hi there.  How is your present moment going?  I hope everything is well for you and if it’s not that you have great support systems to help you navigate your way through whatever you are facing today.  Sometimes, and I am terrible about this, you have to set aside your pride and ask for help.  Sometimes the first step is just admitting you even need help at all….that’s a big first step.  I’ve had to do that one a few times for different things.

The drawings today aren’t anything spectacular.  I decided to draw out that darn dream I had last night that was so vivid for me.  My dark green pickup rendering sucks balls but I’ve never been that good at drawing cars! Lol.  Anyhew – sending you positive vibes and an invisible hug across the miles.
