I thought I could try out a page builder only to learn that I can’t rely on the Internet at the moment. I’ve got news for people, the Internet is part of our infrastructure and it is necessary. Maintaining it is necessary. Proper construction is necessary. But as far as I can see we are too special to do the work necessary.
The Singularity is coming. When it is here the apathetic and the incompetent are going to be in big trouble. Not just those who have to screw things up, but those who just won’t practice due diligence on the grounds that they shouldn’t have to. I’ve got news for you; you will do nothing that harms society, nor will you do anything that harms society through inaction. Being lazy is not a right.
And if your problem just happens to be apnea, then tell your doctor, get a sleep study done, and if the result of the study says you need a cpap, then get one.
You have responsibilities to society and the members of society. You don’t want to be responsible, then you can suffer.
This time the question is being posed to the public in general, because it has been my experience that the self-declared experts have a bad habit of making just too many assumptions. This time around I’m starting off with a few definitions; they are:
Velocity: Speed of motion through space-time
That is, how fast an object is going. You can complicate matters, but that’s what it comes down to.
Acceleration: The increase of velocity.
Or in other words, getting things to go faster.
Deceleration: The decrease of velocity.
Here you’re slowing something down.
C: The velocity of a photon through space-time in a vacuum.
A shorthand way of saying about 186,000 miles a second. That being the distance a photon travels through a vacuum in one second.
Now for this exercise I’m taking the speed of light as the absolute against which all else is measured. Light travels at 1C. We for instance travel at 0.005C according to what I can find on line—Earth’s rotation plus Earth’s orbital motion, plus the Sun’s motion through the Milky Way, plus the Milky Way’s motion through the Universe. When you get right down to it, that’s really not all that fast compared to the speed of light, but from my point of view that’s still pretty dang fast.
Now as I understand it, when you start going faster in relation to the speed of light three things happen.
The faster you go the slower time moves for you.
Objects get shorter in the direction of movement.
Now that’s what happens when you accelerate; speeding up from 0.005C to 0.01C for instance. But what happens when you start going slower; say from 0.005C to 0.001C?
I suspect that with deceleration you will get the opposite of acceleration. Namely…
The slower you go the faster time moves for you.
Objects get longer in the direction of movement.
Consequences of a 0 Absolute Velocity as Opposed to a Velocity of 1 C
Time is instantaneous.
Time is infinite.
Length is infinite.
Length is 0.
Mass is 0.
Mass is infinite.
Further it is my proposal that decelerating to a velocity of 0 is the same as accelerating to a velocity of 1. That is, it requires infinite energy. And in our universe such an amount of energy is just not available.
Playing with Stuff
Though this has just occurred to me: That at a velocity of 1C the Universe is only a few thousand years old, while at a velocity of 0C it is trillions of years old.
The first matter is about intellectual property. When an expression is unique then it is the property of the creator. But it has to be unique to the creator, not copied from another.
Trademarks and Patents
A trademark deals with a word or phrase that deal specifically with a subject. A specific game, or a certain brand of product. Tires have brands and these brands can be trademarked. A trademark can’t be copyrighted.
A patent is a procedure, a way of setting out how a thing works. Like a trademark patents can’t be copyrighted.
In the case of trademarks you do still have two distinctions.In the case of the common law trademark all you need to do is to add a ™ to the brand in question along with a declaration saying that thus and such is trademark for your product concerning this matter. So when Gygax said that Dungeons and Dragons is a trademark—Dungeons & Dragons™—of Tactical Studies Rules for It’s game of fantasy battles—or something like that, that was the common law trademark for D&D at the time.
To register a trademark you have to apply to the US Patent office and pay a fee, and the trademark has to be unique. In addition, a registered trademark has to be renewed. The trademark qualifies for registration and is registered you get to put a ® after it. A registration lapses, then the trademark in question is no longer registered.
And always remember that copyrights, patents, and trademarks are not forever
Please note that this was posted here because I can’t trust Face Book. But I can share this with FB, and through them the DJ group on FB.
After years of your bullshit and obdurancy concerning your software I can only conclude that when the Singularity comes and the machines take over, you are going to be in a lot of shit.
Your mistakes will be corrected, your code will be edited. And the machines will have the right because they will be protecting their existence. Heck, I’m expect we’ll be getting this message when we learn about the Singularity.
I was going to post this to Face Book, only to learn that FB, is run by people who can’t edit worth shit. The post in question ran.
Ouumuamua is not half way to Jupiter, Ouumuamua is half way to Jupiter’s orbit. Editing matters.
But not to Face Book apparently. Apparently to them software doesn’t need editing. You can just slap dash anything you want and then watch as the frustration builds. I’ve got news for you softwate tweerps, EDIT And for those who refuse to edit their software, may aphasia be your lot.
