An Ode To Motion

Of motion and flow, mechanics of boundaries and breathing, synchronicity and mastery of transience.

Man....If I can but have my fill of it, understand the flow to its core and have it within me forever

Thanks for Sharing Nath's

My Bedtime Stories Now



Once upon a time, in 1802 to be exact,  the German scientist, E. F. F. Chladni (1756 1824) developed the method of placing sand on a vibrating plate to find its mode shapes and observed the beauty and intricacy of the modal patterns of the vibrating plates. 

In 1809 the French Academy invited Chladni to give a demonstration of his experiments. Napoléon Bonaparte, who attended the meeting, was so impressed he presented a sum of 3,000 francs to the academy, to be awarded to the first person to give a satisfactory mathematical theory of the vibration of plates. 

As the closing date of the competition in October 1811 approached, no brave candidate was showing up with attempts to conquer the physical reality with a mathematical model. Until only one candidate, Sophie Germain, entered the contest. But Lagrange, who was one of the judges, noticed an error in the derivation of her differential equation of motion so she was not granted the price. Regardless of her hard work, the model was incorrect and the examination was about results not efforts or process.

 The academy opened the competition again, with a new closing date of October 1813. Sophie Germain againwent through her model and entered the contest, presenting the correct form of the differential equation. However, the academy did not award the prize to her because the judges wanted physical justification of the assumptions made in her derivation. 

The competition was opened once more. In her third attempt, Sophie Germain was finally awarded the prize in 1815, although the judges were not completely satisfied with her theory. Sophie Germain took Napoléon's 3000 Francs and a valuable amount of knowledge and processing abilities.


And later, it was found that her differential equation was correct but the boundary conditions were erroneous. The correct boundary conditions for the vibration of plates were given in 1850 by G. R. Kirchhoff (1824 1887).

A praise of Energy Hunters


 ハンターを称える音声ファイル
太陽系からサワディークラップ!
ポム ペン コン ジープンとして
ヨングミラテチタ!
一億四千九百キロの果てより到来する太陽
PHOTONの翻訳者として、はたまた、混沌の
姉妹、カオスの淑女たる突風あるいは高波
さざ波に秘めたる秩序 ”回転”より感電を
もたらす者として諸君は称えられる。
大声を出し、フルーツさえ叱咤し、ひねり、
まわし、にぎり、か弱き電気を共感の地鳴り
へと換算する、普通のビジネスマン、主婦、 OL、
あるいは小学生などとして、諸君は
称えられる
 ハンターとして行け、救済、保護、など口に
せず、ただ普通に呼吸する地球の行為者
として、その足跡を毒で汚さぬ太陽系の
 歩行者として。たとえ今生で"変人"と呼ばれ
ようとも、宇宙の秩序が諸君の隣人である
限りにおいて、諸君は称えられ、かつ美しく
 称えられよ。
 ハンターは称えられよ、エナジーハンターは
 称えられよ!
An audio file that praises hunters
From the solar system, Sawatdii khrap!
 As pom pen khon yiipun, myeong geum ill ha dae chwi ta!
As coming from the end of 100004900 km,
as an interpreter of solar photon,
Or sisters of chaos, chaotic ladylike gust of wind,
Or secret order of high waves and ripples,
As electric bringer from "rotation",
You are praised.
Shout, even urge fruit, twist, rotate, grip,
Transforming weak electricity to the ground rumbling of sympathy,
As an ordinary businessman, a housewife, a female office worker or an elementary school student etc,
You are praised.
Go as a hunter, don't say relief or preservation,
As an ordinary actor who breathe on the earth,
As a walker of the solar system who does not pollute own traces by poison.
Even if you are called crazy,
as long as the order  of the universe is your neighbor, you are praised,  moreover, you are beautifully praised.
Hunters are praised,
Energy hunters are praised!
 Translation by Tahara-san, thank you :)

Putain je l'adore

Hoffnung

Und ich dachte, inmitten dieser Finsternis und in all meinem Verloren sein, nune wurde ich die Bedeutung der Liebe kennen, in Worten von Peixoto:

"Die Liebe ist das Blut der Sonne in der Sonne. Die tausendfach wiederkehrende Unschuld im ernsthaften Verlangen zu wunschen, der Himmel moge verstehen. Leichte und linde Sturme erheben sich im Sanften Atem der Liebe. Wie eine Pflanze, die durch die Erde bricht. Die Liebe ist das Sonnelicht, das die susse Stimme dieser Pflanze trinkt. Etwas, tief im Tiefen...Die Liebe ist der Sinn aller unmoglichen Worte. Die Liebe ist, das Innere eines Gebirges zu durchqueren, die Urstuden der Welt zu durchlaufen. Die Liebe ist der frische Frieden und Nahrung eines Feuers tief, tief, tief, tief im Inneren der Tage. Der Morgenhimmel, der wie ein Fluss dahingleitet. Die Nachmittagssonne als Gewissheit. Die Liebe entspringt der Fulle des Lichts und der Urkfrat von Felsen. Die Liebe entspringt dem Meer, den Wellen in der Weite des Ozeans und dem ewigen Sand. Die Liebe entspringt so vielen gegensatzlichen und wahren Dingen. Es entstehen Orte fur die Liebe, und in diesen himmelischen Garten bedeutet eine Brise, die sanft auf das Gesicht fallt, die Rettung..."

Ich dachte wirklich da, so wirklich, da, inmitten dieser Finsternis und in all meinem Verloren sein, und so erhoffte sich die Hoffnung wieder.

Note on future travels within the middle of the USA

-Check the BLOODY weather before anything.
-Keep in mind the BLOODY weather will jeopardize any carefully setup plans.
-Choose a timing that is at least five days, so that when you end up with emergencies, you'd still have two days out of the original five to do something.
-Do NOT grant services in the USA the stereotyped idea of American punctuality: it is far fetched from the truth.
-There seems to be only one main bus service: Greyhound. And they seem to enjoy the monopoly quite well.
-If you don't drive, you are at the mercy of pretty much anything.
-Trains are not that expensive for four hours trips and they are AMAZING.
-Again, the BLOODY WEATHER is not something you can plan ahead of two weeks. Make sure you can get refunded and have flexible plans B.
-Don't let the spoiled plans -however spoiled- get in the way of you hanging out in the city where you are stuck.
-Planes are bloody expensive and might suffer the same problems as well, though they take customers more seriously and care more than buses ones.

My three days trip to Arkansas was supposed to be the first tip I would make to explore surrounding states and meet friends.
I spent the whole Friday stuck in Kansas city and was back in Wichita by 4am because of the lack of options to go back and lack of many timetables to buses and trains.
In those moments, I do miss Morocco so bloody much.
But hey I got to make a friend and explore KC train station and ride on the train : they were all awesome things to experience.
Now I have to come up with a battle plan that won't dig up in my savings for Omaha Nebraska. I had to give up on reaching Fayetteville, AR but my silver lining was that I will get another opportunity.

Now Omaha's concert, the vip concert, the tight schedule, these don't always happen.

Vidra's Cover of Avatar Alone

I am at that sweet spot where I have time to organize my virtual files.
I'm at that sweet spot where I check my watch later list.
I'm at the sweetest of them : an exquisite Italian cover of Susumu Hirasawa's Avatar Alone by Vidra.

Thank you guys, it is brilliant tribute.

The Crucible

Since the Crucible started playing at the Old Vic, I hoped to find a way to watch it. Finances and distance apart, there were talks of cameras in the shows and lately, an official announcement that Digital Theatre will launch a copy mastered by Yael Farber herself.

Now that I am in the U.S., I have the kind of account that can pay for such stuff with no problem.

Hail Armitage ! He definitely seems the one artist able to let me see a one-dimensional creation under multidimensional referential

Thank you 2016

Shisho is grateful for 2016
2016 is....not to be summed up in a word, or a sentence, or a book.

All I can sum up is my gratitude for the Einstein's elevator paradigm of experiences throughout it.

Much was intense, on the extremes of the spectrum: the good of it, the bad of it, the terrific, the terrible...Little was mellow or tranquil and it was welcome as it was a very brief, but yet present breather between collercoaster's ride.

I am grateful for every bit of it, and amidst the suffering, Humankind's alienation and the canvas of dim colors and awful sensations, I am at awe at the little dots of colors and lines, however fine, of lively hues: our moments of joy: the beloved ones that were spared, the cherished ones that overcame their health issues, the close ones endowed with bravery and endurance to keep on fighting and moving forward, the inspiring ones that provide us with more content, the anonymous ones with uninterested acts of kindness, the hopeful ones still working for our world and the gone ones, wasted potential or fulfilled promises as they can be, be at peace.

And stay well and healthy, and endowed with inner fire dear reader.

Belphégor

I was looking for a picture of Belphégor to put on my phone when I stumbled upon new art done in his honor. I am extremely pleased the character is gaining inertia again, even for a little while.

I have recently rewatched the whole series while preparing for my final quizzes ( that might contribute to explaining the grades). I would work to Belphégor's episodes before but I see I can't do this now.

le Musée du Louvre. Immense dédale de couloirs et de salles où veillent des oeuvres énigmatiques de génies disparus... Où des statues, qui présidèrent il y a des siècles à des cultes immondes, contemplent aujourd’hui de leurs yeux vides la foule des visiteurs insouciants... Où dans la pierre des stèles, des signes indéchiffrables annoncent des cataclysmes à venir et des épidémies implacables...Car derrière le décor quotidien du Paris familier, il y a celui qui ne figure ni sur les plans les plus détaillés, ni sur les guides les mieux documentés. L’autre Paris, le Paris mystérieux d’au-delà des apparences. Maléfique et souterrain, déjà disparu aussitôt qu’entrevu, ce Paris de miasmes et d’ombres qu’on aurait pu croire à jamais chassées par les vivaces et assainissantes avancées urbanistiques de ces dernières décennies, c’est le Paris de Belphégor...
