Not giving one, just saying that I expect that I am more likely to write for a journal with co-authors and do more expansive writing individually. I could get a journal article published, I am quite sure; but I really could not do adequate justice to what I would choose to write about either in a mathematical or non-mathematical journal by myself. I have a few reasonable candidates for co-authors. I may make an exception of my 234 sequence alone, if I ever get access again to my newer computer; but that would just be about a single mathematical/numerological curiosity out of larger context, and it would not interest you.
Note: Saw the discussion at Taliesin's Journal. Haha! (to what he said too)
I get the impression my interest in a Roxanne Santos in Manila is well known here (at least to you). Coincidences there too. Just her: 1) Going by CUM_GETME, she has a cousin named Lei and I went to a 'Come get a lei' fraternity party once (as a highschooler, and my mom was not pleased); 2) She holds the same name (presumably named after) as a filipina who acted in a movie entitled 'The Miracle of Love' (where she played a cancer patient who survived and became a nun) and shortly thereafter herself died from cancer; 3) She was born 8 years and 85 days prior to Hurricane Roxanne, and if 859 minutes is added to that total we get a number of minutes with prime factor 70999; and 4) I sent her a photo of myself in an Arizona t-shirt (as a teen) and subsequently had also a Facebook friend with her name (not coincidence, deliberate) who was born 7 months and 7 days prior to her birth date of 14 July 1987, i.e. Pearl Harbor Day of 1986 (the Arizona was the ship sunk, for your info (though I assume this is known)). Not that you are interested, just saying.
"I get the impression my interest in a Roxanne Santos in Manila is well known here (at least to you)."
Nope. Missed that. I'll try to remember.
"Going by CUM_GETME"
I have no idea what "CUM_GETME" is.
"a 'Come get a lei' fraternity party "
curiouser and curiouser.
"movie entitled 'The Miracle of Love'"
haven't seen it or heard of it.
"and if 859 minutes is added to that total"
Maybe I'm really dense, but whence did you pull that 859? From what I can see here, that's just a handy fudge factor used to make your numbers fit. Surely you've got a reason for that specific number other than "it makes the numbers Nature gave me a magic number I was looking for. Don't you?
"14 July 1987"
That's also exactly three years and one day after my oral defence of my M.A. thesis. It's also exactly 198 years after the Storming of the Bastille and so, the 197th Bastille Day.
A key part of an abstract would be that it answers the question "why should I read the full treatment?" or, more precisely, "So What?"
You've listed above a bunch of dates and spans of time. Should I assume that they are germane to your eternal life, supernatural thing? If so, how?
It's not that so much that I'm not interested.
It's that the lists you've made are not particularly interesting.
If you want, have a look here: http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/presentations_abstracts_examples.html
Well, the stuff prior does not actually have questions, but anyway CUM_GETME is a nom de porn, if you will and the movie might not even have been done in English (not sure, but I want the script in any case). 859 just arose because I expected the 8, 85, to have a follow-up, and it did turn out to. 85 is just a significant sort of number for me (really not important). Focus on Police videos made me think you might be linking knowledge regarding name Roxanne. I did forget almost that I did some strange numerology (you would be even less likely to know about) on a morphing of myself into a Carl G Liporada (thinking of Jung, Liporada just being another former Facebook friend), btw.
Already said no abstract was forthcoming. Just responding to posting the Police, actually. Coversation thread, not topical. Am I in trouble for being off-topic? Just talking.
I know what an abstract is.
"Focus on Police videos made me think you might be linking knowledge regarding name Roxanne"
No. I was linking to the novels of Nabakov. Particularly "Pale Fire".
Actually, I was linking to the two Police songs with the title "Synchronicity" taken from the coinage of Jung for the concept of a meaningful coincidence with particular reference to the affirmation you had just made that "meaningful coincidence" was something like what you were meaning.
Sometimes the hoof beats are from horses rather than zebras.
You just like The Police, admit it! Do I get Canadian points for liking Phil Collins and Genesis?
I *do* like the Police (something to do with Section 91 of one of the older bits of our Constitution )
As for those others you mention . . .
I'll go with the real talent of the bunch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1tTN-b5KHg
And it makes no sense now for me to keep coming here without earphones. I own some.
If I don't reply for a while it's because I'm off in the real world for a bit (and it's getting close to bedtime).
Seriously, about that other thread, I don't know what you're trying to say half the time with all the numbers, but I kinda wish I did understand. I'd very much like to see you make yourself clear to the rest. They can be total a-holes with people who aren't making themselves clear *to them*. If you make yourself clear to them, they'll probably still be total a-holes about it, but then at least somebody (me?) can call them on being a-holes without explaining what their objections to your exposition are.
Anyway. Gotta go.
[Very Brief (in relative terms)] Abstract (and this is off-the-cuff, so likely not best, and right now this is not intended; but if you want to know what I am trying to talk about without the details, this is my summary): The author argues using his own experience, numerical data and computations--as well as other materials--that, though we live in a world that comes very close to being explainable in standard naturalistic terms, an additional element that he explains is most logically assumed to be an early-galactic intelligence is almost certainly at work. The author further postulates that the synchronic relationship between our accelerating capacities as a species and looming crises is non-accidental and that we essentially--as a feature over-riding in large part the naturalistic--live in a semi-programmed state of existence whose objective is connected most forcefully with the need for extreme preparations, on time-scales that should concern us but not urgently, for the eruption of the Yellowstone caldera. The heart of the issue is coincidental material in base-10 numeration and their discovery, but the author considers other materials that are not related to this at all and others that are but only obliquely. He asserts that a full exploration of the matters concerned here would be necessary but would also require more resources, intellectual and other, than are yet available. The author does not consider direct relationship with the causing agent, and suggests that that should not be the primary issue except insofaras there might be a plan to follow that only arises in consideration of this changed perspective on our existential state. Ultimately, he claims he is a bearer of a kind of partial law of or template for human social organization for an end-state of no mortality that he expects to include the majority of those people still living. This particular part of his thesis derives from his experiences from the early-middle part of 2004 through the beginning of 2006. The primary cause of the semi-programmed state he asserts exists is speculated upon based on what humans have come to know of the natural world in a way that should not today strain credulity under plausible future human technologies and their likely existence for more more advanced life; nor should it strain credulity on other counts such as expected behaviors of advanced life, as the author also argues.
I think the double 'more' is all that is wrong, if it is. I suppose an abstract that deals with all of this for an article would also have to talk about a lengthy concluding section, but I don't really know what the contents of that would be at all.
Just here for a minute, but, thanks!
Now you've explained what you've bitten off.
It will be more interesting to see you chew it.
Why me? [As I said elsewhere] This would fill a large Journal by itself if I wrote it, and the prospective journal in which it might belong is highly unlikely to already exist, as is the University where it might be a thesis. All so strange!!!
Sorry to abuse the metaphor, but to me it is more like somebody punched me in the stomach and shoved something strange-tasting and already chewed in my mouth. Much more interested--and always have been--in doing something direct about global warming
