Wanted to say thanks for the fascinating article. Some of these things I am thinking about, since I was little, calling it the concept of multispectral infinity, but well. I am not a physics professor, so it's just the thinking of a crazy person... my latest update was 28 dimensions, but that was like 2002 or so. In the mad hatter's world things work different anyhow. Some time I drew a five dimensional body just for fun and boys, I dunno shit about math, in fact I never understood it, my mind works in pictures and textures, spaces and sound. Synesthesia they call that. So, going from the limits of human mind to certain adaptations of the human form to certain laws of nature, we'll find ourselves shaped in congruency with the main dimensions that govern our functions. We're limited to these. So we need all kinds of abstract tools and concepts to cast beyond these limits. Like math. Aye, that's what all the thesis finding does - yet it's all based on a model trying to taste the real thing.

Nature's "fractals" are always imperfect to some minor degree. The directions are repetitive, but the details are never precise. First law of multispectral infinity... the infinity of diversity. I think there's not one leaf of a tree identical to another one, not in the whole life of this tree, and not in the lives of any a tree in all of time -- even if they show all similar a structural pattern. I found it on sparrow feathers (Passer domesticus) before. Repetitive feather structures, aye, but always slightly imperfect details. And the whole universe only can have come into existence, because there was imbalance.

Greene's right in the article that language's not sufficient to cover some higher or lower dimensional images, really. I wouldn't know a term for "Durchlagerung" meaning a multidimensional node in a grid of sorts. The multiplex shape, so to say. Not only one direction or up, down, back and forth, depth plus time, but infinite directions. They speak about texture interlacing and things I pretty well can picture 1:1, I think dimensions can interlace and merge, always wondering how some universe would expand if they say there's nothing outside of it - just never made any sense... okay I better beat it, people probably will think me bat shit crazy by now, anyhow. They thought that at school already. :D

My latest seen movie is "War of the planet of apes" (Survival) and I had to wait awful long to finally fetch it on DVD, after watching the first two over and over. Since I quit on torrents, everything just comes waaaay late. :blargh:
There were a few things I was kind of disappointed on. How they made them apes act even more human, than in the first two parts of the trilogy. Of course, one would maybe think, they're more evolved in these 15 years gone by, according to the movie's story line, or something, but them moving about upright most of the scenes took the appeal to some extent. Don't want to talk it bad or so. I think I had high expectations, and I am too critical in most things anyway, after knowing very well of the abilities of the great Mister Andy Serkis .

Yes! I enjoyed it a lot, even as someone who isn't a fan of the genre. You've seen the first one? I enjoyed that one too but thought the new one was better. :)

I have seent hte first one, really enjoyed it, especially Rutger Hauers speech at the end. Made the movie really. I shall give the new one a try! Thanks René, you're an angel ;)

Oh, Your not a fan of the genré? I thought you'd like the sci-fi setting, or is it the dystopian aspect/ cyberpunk element?

Sounds stupid, but I wont watch it! I am deeply averse to the idea of uplifting animals, by accident or intent and I suspect it's something that would be possible in the next century, so it's bound to happen, because people can't help themselves. As I said, silly, but I can't help but shudder at the thought. :lol:

As to your musings on the article (which was interesting) they don't sound crazy, more thoughtful and I think it;s good to exercise the mind in such a fashion!

I'n not aware they made any specific exposition, which is why I love the show.


Apparently they use the terms "parallel universe" and "alternate dimensions" interchangeably, although incorrectly. I didn't watch the full first season, I only know this because I read about it in an article critiquing the show's science. I watched the second season though.

This article: https://www.popsci.com/tackling-strange ... ing-theory
In Stranger Things, they use the terminology parallel universes and alternate dimensions, interchangeably.

Ugh, I must have pushed the teacher's exposition out of my memory. :lol:

Yeah, it's that stuff. I mainly think of it as a neo-noir film. I also didn't like the female nudity. But both films are good enough that I still enjoyed them overall.

I watched the sandlot last night. :keke:

Some kids movies dont hold up. But the sandlot for sure does. :)

I had the biggest crush on Benny when i was a kid. TotAlly forgot about it.


Excellent movie though.

Just a few years ago I was thinking Pixar's best were well behind it. Glad to have been wrong!

Pfft. Liberals. Always pandering to the Mexicans.

In all seriousness I was impressed as well by how detailed they were, from buildings modeled after actual ones to the sweet bread. Even the smothering grandmas do and the offense taken when you say you’re not hungry.

Not mine! My Nan, was more akin to Nanny Ogg from Terry Pratchets discworld, dirty limericks and fondness for cakes included, infact, when it came to food if you said no, she was overjoyed as she could eat it for you.

It’s not about a general pushiness though. Traditional Mexican women really do get super butthurt over rejecting their food, even if it isn’t for the reasons these women imagine. It’s why they put it in there. If the movie were about whites and made a reference to how adult kids throw their parents in convalescent homes and never visit them or about putting ketchup on everything there’s no question you’d relate to the film more closely.

"Goodnight Mommy"

This is a german psychological horror that came out a few years ago. A friend recommended it to me awhile ago so yesterday i decided to give it a try. And i loved it. :keke:

Like most foreign horror films it relies on atmosphere and the mood It sets much more then jump scares or gross outs. So it's probably not for everyone.

It's about two twin brothers who's mom is in an accident and she has to get surgery on her face. When she returns back home she is covered in bandages and really depressed.

The twins notice the change in their mother's personality and convince themselves that the woman that has come home is not their mother. Which leads to them "testing" her in some disturbing ways.

I had to watch it with subtitles because i dont understand german. If your a fan of psychological horror id highly recommend it. :)

Halloween 2018.



Ill start by saying im a huge fan of the original Halloween and john carpenter in general. So im a bit biased when people fuck with such a good classic.

Having said that this movie wasn't bad. Definitely a great movie to see to celebrate the season. But in the halloween series its Pretty meh. But most of them are.

Im not gonna post any spoilers cause it just came out. But it follows the "standard" procedure most of the sequels do. Only thing is Laurie Stroud is a recluse and similar to a doomsday prepper. Essentially waiting for Michaels return.

You have to ignore the other movies in the series. This is essentially meant to be halloween 2. ( although imo the original sequel is great to. )

It does have a couple nods to the original but it kinda ends there. The new doctor is by far the worst. Dr loomis was more obsessed with Michael which gave a reason for him being so strongly attached. This is just a weird doctor that is not Donald Pleasanse.

Michael is after Laurie's granddaughter with Laurie after. Michael. Lol. Jamie lee Curtis does a really good job in the movie. I think i seen an interview where she said the movie is more of a retelling of the original. Except with her as Dr. Loomis and her granddaughter as the victim. But Laurie is determined to kill Micheal

All in all it was a good movie. Not great and nothing like the original. But a good film. If you enjoy horrors its worth seeing. It. Has an old school vibe that isn't around anymore. But they try and explain to much. Which is my biggest issue with the other sequels. What made the original sooo good was how simple it was. There was no reason given for any of it. It just happened. It's why they choose the plain white mask that Michael wears. I don't care why he is how he is.

I absolutely hated the Rob Zombie remakes for the very reason he added all the backstory.


Well i guess that's it. :) its a good movie for what it is. It's best to go in acting as if the other sequels never happened and with an open mind. But a great movie to see for halloween. :D

Well Coco really took me by surprise. Loved the animation and the entire look of the film, I thought that was amazing. Such great attention to detail. The story I didn’t think I’d bought into that much until the end.

I say that in past tense because when the big key change in the final song came, it made me cry. :wide-eyed:

Who knew I was so emotional?

I know Derek says that the grandma’s behavior is universal, which to some extent it is in order for the movie bros appeal, but there’s no question that some things are very specific to rural Mexican culture, like the use of sandals as a disciplining tool.

I put off watching Coco until June of this year, my boss kept giving it praise and shared that it was actually very true to our culture. Totally wrecked me, especially after my grandmother died later that month and I masochistically kept watching it on repeat.
