van der Waals, nano- molecular planetary system motor, Delauney and Voronoi diagrams, and a nice free modeling suite called “Molecular Workbench” I found. (I( just made this but I forgot to do music)
Now to find this in tribology and I have a connection – I suspect in stick-slip mechanics, which is what I’m hoping for.
Ah! Well, consolidation of my mind. I follow my interests. I don’t know why. I go around and around particular things and interests. Why do I do that?
What are my interests? The vague levels are easy. But specifics are hard.
Why is it I don’t like continuous and prefer discrete? Is it ok that I don’t like continuous? It is. Can I justify it? I can.
I feel as if there’s a library with anything I might have ever written in it but it was blown up and the pages are scattered. So, I’m collecting the pages, trying to figure out how to make books out of the pages and what classifications they’re in.
I was surprised that having a resource (Librarything) to literally tie it to a library classification system is turning into my big solution — but it is. I thought it was metaphorical but no, I need a library-like space.
In the particular: The search for “stick-slip” connections ties into Arnold Tongue. Arnold tongue is the edge of chaos, where chaos and fractions meet. 1/2, 1/3, 2/3, etc. The black parts are phase locked loops. Phase locked loops is synchonization. Synchronization is event onsets: Time – where time comes from.
Events occurring at the same time are associated with each other in our minds. They are one way of forming categories. A concept is a theory of a category. [yes, it’s elephants all the way down with this one]
I want to be able to gauge new information and put them in proper categories in a way that works with how I think so that I present myself authentically while also being correct from my perspective.
I don’t know why I have to dive so ridiculously deeply into things — took me 7 years to realize I do a depth-first search pattern – but that’s why I’m curious.
Could a money making book or product or billion dollar idea come of this? Who knows. But whether it does or doesn’t, I want to it to be authentic and true from me but first I have to figure out what’s authentic and true for me – and THAT requires a lot of ‘feels’. (does it ‘feel right’? does it “seem wrong’?)
Ah, cathartic output. I wouldn’t have put this all together if you didn’t ask. Now I have another piece of my map I didn’t know about.
I’ll be somewhat disappointed if it turns out these fractions from the arnold tongue aren’t the killer-connect I think they are but it might not matter if it’s “close enough”.
At this level it’s arcane. If it’s anything, it’d probably be pedagogical as that seems to be what I like doing. BUY NOW, 320 DVD SET ON EVERYTHING.
But I can’t teach what I don’t understand.
Interdisciplinary. I think that would sum it up. Reinvention of university. Math / science / humanities, tying it together. Who knows. I’m enjoying the ride.
Defective material = pooling points / sources of output. orthogonal – 90 degree turn. rotation in unexpected directions not visible when in parallel. AH! HOW TO PARALLEL -> SERIAL? Defect to defect. The defect is the ‘thing’, parallel is the field / background. Serial may come from parallel but parallel can be ignored safely as serial is more interesting. Flows. Ok, sorry for terse notes. I’ll have to double check.
I was learning about skyrmions LAST YEAR too? Ah, that’s before I learned about “Mexican Hat wavelet” and how the inhibition around the central point comes from within … a standing wave. Ah, a standing wave.
8 years later: synchronization creates time. I think it’s … wait…
May 5, 2017: 3 years ago.
“Synchronization creates Time. The gap. Phase Locked Loops, Circle Graph, Arnold Tongue, Netlogo”
So I had an answer to that question umm.. 2017-2012 – 5 years. So 5 years. But I learned more in the last 3 years too.
David Signy-Hagbard yeah, it’s anniversary of this kind of research time. Time.
lol i just realized: it HAS to wobble. All of it. Has to wobble to work.
