On the existence of Hell

“I knew hell did not exist.
I knew heaven did but I always said that this was hell.
And we even had a joke,
‘If you don’t believe that this is hell,
turn on CNN (you know) or Fox News – you’ll get proof right there.
You’re in hell!'”

Tori Smith, “Part 1 Cleansing and Clearing of the Whole Galaxy is Underway”, February 3, 2015. online video accessed online 25 April, 2015. Quote @ 29:44 via youtube.

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.”

William Blake, “The Marriage of Heaven and Hell”. ≈1790, published 1827,  J Whatman 1825, London, UK. accessed online 25 April, 2015 via blakearchive.org.

Magnets and Energy

The idea that with opposite magnets a type of repeling vortex is created that using the weddingcake method you can create endless rotation.

And here a more worked out version presented at the Technical University at Delft, in the Netherlands.

M.T. Keshe goes on to redefine the concept of magnetic north and south; explaining that the field interacts, pushing protons or electrons outwards (polarity) and if it is opposite (a similar field) then there is no space to allow the say protons of a magnetic field in to the atomic structure of the opposite magnet. This causes magnets to repel each other. The gravitational field of earth plays a part by pulling the repelling protons or electrons back to the magnet which visually would could be seen as a torus. Therefore he calls the north magnetic pole as entry, and the south magnetic pole as exit. There is alot more interesting information in his lecture.

Debt

Cash Ruins Everything Around Me, don't remember where I found this.

CREAM; Cash Ruins Everything Around Me.

 

It’s great to see Nick Leeson, a banker that was almost singlehandedly responsible for the fall of Barings Investment Bank while he was living in Singapore in the mid-1990s, talk about “More control, […] and regulation”. Anyway whether you agree with big banking or not he explains that they need more quality regulators to, sort out what the financial traders are cooking up in terms of financial instruments, that work within the bounds (or gray areas) of the laws and regulations whilst earning them large profits. I guess if the financial sector would want to regain the confidence of the general public; financial managers should be held publicly accountable for the losses they have caused the general public and through transparency the public should be informed about what kind of constructions should be avoided in the future.

Descending EP Cover Art

DYFR006, the new DYFR records after 2 years of silence. 3 timeless tracks from minimal acid / techno to cheerful electronics and ending in a massive underground acid fest. 140 gr red transparent vinyl with hand-spray-painted stencilled cover designs.

The design of the version available through Bandcamp differs from the retail version in detail and composition and only about 30 will be made in this way!

Paradox of Time

The paradox of time (and timelines) is that when a negative event is created with a negative charge; unwittingly the opposite positive event is created as a possibility on the same density (of a particular dimension). These two extremes are inherit to polarity; which is of dualistic nature.

Therefore every outcome on a timeline will have two distinct choices which represent the outer spectrum of polarity; either positive or negative, with many less extreme choices and their resulting outcomes in between. There is always an opposite charged choice which is created to contrast a particular choice / event; when either choice is made, and there is no avoiding this basic principle in duality.

A Definition (or two)

THE PIXELSHIFT: A DEFINITION (or two)

1. In classical webdesign (which has been around all of 6 years or more), there was an inherit difference/fault between Internet Explorer, Navigator, Safari, Opera and Firefox. This fault (aptly dubbed a ‘feature’ ) by certain developers that I know, caused a shift in a floated layer (.div), which would be interpreted differently in each different browser, and thus causing a layout to break.

Things like margins, paddings and the complexity (amount of nested layers in the layout) amongst other things would influence the effect of this shift. It is also the reason why most front-end webdevelopers today still prefer using seperate CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for IE and different clusters of browsers.

2. In digital cameras (camcorders) with CCD chips. Pixelshifting is used to raise the resolution of lens image to digital data. The CCD chip is moved half a pixel vertical and horizontally in steps to have a finer sample method.  A higher resolution of sampling to approach full-HD via with CCD chip with less physical CCD. It is interesting to note that a CCD chip takes a snapshot of the entire frame and  a CMOS sensor takes a gradual snapshot called a rolling shutter, effectively making it less responsive for higher frame rate sampling.
