Fast Forward

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 3:00 AM

Dan Brown, a sculpture at CIA headquarters, and secret codes are discussed at the bottom of today's New York Times  front page.

In this vein, here is a meditation on Religion and Time  (continued from Kurt Vonnegut's birthday)—

At the end of "Three Days of the Condor," Cliff Robertson asks Robert Redford, "How do you know they'll print it?"

One possible answer: "They always printthe lottery."

The New York Lottery on Saturday, November 20, 2010: Midday 704, Evening 687.

Here 704 suggests 7/04, the Fourth of July, which in turn suggests this journal's post on that date about random numbers and universal wisdom.

Moving further up on the front page of today's New York Times


"Their brains are rewarded not for staying on task but for jumping to the next thing…. The worry is we’re raising a generation of kids in front of screens whose brains are going to be wired differently.”— A worried professor at Harvard Medical School

For that new generation… Live from New York, it's Universal Wisdom! — In other words, 687!

Returning to the lottery hermeneutics (look it up, dudes) of July 4th, we note that a rather arcane and archaic procedure on a Windows PC keyboard— "Num Lock + Alt + 687"— produces the symbol known as a right guillemet».  This mark, which can stand for "fast forward," may symbolize to the old Slow-Forward Generation the fears of the Harvard professor for the new Differently-Wired Generation.

In memory of film producer Dino De Laurentiis, who died yesterday at 91—

He is listed in Internet Movie Database under “Three Days of the Condor” as “executive producer (uncredited).”

At the end of that film, Cliff Robertson asks Robert Redford, “How do you know they’ll print it?”

One possible answer—
