Zelig-Like?

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 10:46 PM

“On their way to obscurity, the Simulmatics people
played minor parts in major events, appearing Zelig-like
at crucial moments of 1960s history.”

Octads and Geometry

Filed under: General — Tags: , , , — m759 @ 10:11 PM

See the web pages octad.group and octad.us.

Related geometry (not the 759 octads, but closely related to them) —


The 4×6 rectangle of R. T. Curtis
illustrates the geometry of octads —

Counting symmetries with the orbit-stabilizer theorem

Curtis splits the 4×6 rectangle into three 4×2 “bricks” —

.

“In fact the construction enables us to describe the octads
in a very revealing manner. It shows that each octad,
other than Λ1, Λ2, Λ3, intersects at least one of these ‘ bricks’ —
the ‘heavy brick’ – in just four points.” . . . .

Dead Poet Joke

From the subtitles of the recent Kristen Stewart film “Underwater” —

00:30:26,144 –> 00:30:27,476
He’d always say
he had a new joke,

428
00:30:27,478 –> 00:30:29,445
and then he’d tell
the same stupid joke.

429
00:30:29,447 –> 00:30:32,785
I was… laughing at that joke.

430
00:30:34,053 –> 00:30:35,685
Yeah, what was it?

431
00:30:35,687 –> 00:30:38,654
What did the fish say when
it bumped into the brick wall?

April 11 was the dies natalis , in the Catholic sense, of John Horton Conway.

Dream

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 9:26 AM

“All the schools of philosophy, from ancient Greece to the Enlightenment
encyclopedists, have dreamt of one day arriving at total and definitive
knowledge, a knowledge that encompasses the world. Indeed, the dream
lives on in the minds of some scientists today.”

— “Does Basic Research Have Meaning?” by Laurent Lafforgue —

“La recherche fondamentale a-t-elle un sens?
Quelques remarques d’un mathématicien catholique,”
Conférence donnée à l’Université de Notre-Dame,
aux États-Unis, le 20 mai 2011. Voici la version anglaise 
de cette conférence (traduite par Hélène Wilkinson)

Into the Sunset

I just learned of Johnny’s Cash’s death.  On Google News, the headline was  Johnny Cash rides into sunset.  The source was the Bangkok Post.

“Don’t you know that
when you play at this level
there’s no ordinary venue.”
