Mira and the Intruders* Present …

Epiphany 2012: An Exercise
in Bulk Apperception

This post was suggested by a Marrific photo posted today,
by a New Orleans song as played by Bix Beiderbecke,
by a trailer for a new Zemeckis film that appeared at YouTube
on the way to the New Orleans song, and by
the longing for Bix by Mira Sorvino in "Intruders."

The YouTube Bix date, Jan. 6, 2012, suggested a trip back
to that date via a Zemeckis Cube (see "Ready Player One.")

Diamond-Theorem Application

Filed under: General,Geometry — Tags: — m759 @ 1:06 PM
 

Abstract:

"Protection of digital content from being tapped by intruders is a crucial task in the present generation of Internet world. In this paper, we proposed an implementation of new visual secret sharing scheme for gray level images using diamond theorem correlation. A secret image has broken into 4 × 4 non overlapped blocks and patterns of diamond theorem are applied sequentially to ensure the secure image transmission. Separate diamond patterns are utilized to share the blocks of both odd and even sectors. Finally, the numerical results show that a novel secret shares are generated by using diamond theorem correlations. Histogram representations demonstrate the novelty of the proposed visual secret sharing scheme."

520 
00:40:09,559 –> 00:40:11,845 
What were you working on? 

521 
00:40:13,304 –> 00:40:15,766 
<i>Sound.</i> 

522 
00:40:17,234 –> 00:40:20,420 
– Infrasonics. 
– (Rumbling) 

523 
00:40:20,456 –> 00:40:22,917 
– Very low frequencies. 
– (Rumbling) 

524 
00:40:23,037 –> 00:40:25,672 
– (Cracking) 
– Most people had been looking at 18 hertz, 

525 
00:40:25,699 –> 00:40:27,866 
but I experimented with 19. 

526 
00:40:28,325 –> 00:40:32,356 
There are sounds which 
affect the human being. 

527 
00:40:32,383 –> 00:40:35,120 
The roar of an alligator, 
an earthquake, hurricanes, 

528 
00:40:35,129 –> 00:40:38,820 
all exist within the 19 hertz range, 

529 
00:40:39,362 –> 00:40:42,116 
infrasonics not heard… 

530 
00:40:42,236 –> 00:40:45,357 
– (Rumbling) 
– … but felt. 

531 
00:40:45,642 –> 00:40:49,800 
It may allow us a glimpse into 
natural phenomena that a human being 

532 
00:40:49,801 –> 00:40:52,372 
is not intended to see or hear. 

533 
00:40:52,492 –> 00:40:56,375 
What things? What are you talking 
about? What were you building? 

534 
00:40:57,761 –> 00:41:01,075 
Do you believe in ghosts? 

535 
00:41:08,614 –> 00:41:11,075 
I made a ghost machine. 

536 
00:41:14,233 –> 00:41:18,694 
I know it sounds goofy. 
It needs a better name, 

537 
00:41:19,594 –> 00:41:21,486 
but that's what it is… 

538 
00:41:23,213 –> 00:41:26,729 
a device that sees ghosts. 

539 
00:41:27,840 –> 00:41:30,557

Uncommon Noncore

Filed under: General,Geometry — m759 @ 10:30 AM

This post was suggested by Greg Gutfeld’s Sept. 4 remarks on Common Core math.

Problem: What is 9 + 6 ?

Here are two approaches suggested by illustrations of Desargues’s theorem.

Solution 1:

9 + 6 = 10 + 5,
as in Common Core (or, more simply, as in common sense), and
10 + 5 = 5 + 10 = 15 as in Veblen and Young:

Solution 2:

In the figure below,
9 + 6 = no. of  V’s + no. of  A’s + no. of C’s =
no. of nonempty squares = 16 – 1 = 15.
(Illustration from Feb. 10, 2014.)

The silly educationists’ “partner, anchor, decompose” jargon
discussed by Gutfeld was their attempt to explain “9 + 6 = 10 + 5.”

As he said of the jargon, “That’s not math, that’s the plot from ‘Silence of the Lambs.'”

Or from Richard, Frank, and Marcus in last night’s “Intruders
(BBC America, 10 PM).
