Short update:
* A defense contractor was awarded the project of building 5 railgun emplacements, 5 plasma beam delivery systems, and 5 explosive drones (for testing). The "build" slated to start sometime into next month.. maybe.
* An undisclosed VIP in upper tier management has accepted a provisional invitation to visit the (work in progress) Dyson Sphere in order to provide more insight.. if their schedule remains cooperative. So.. maybe?
* I'm shopping for a nice compass, one which points which direction I should go.
* I don't recommend ice cream bars covered in caramel. Was not the pleasant experience I was expecting at 7am this morning. The outer chocolate layer was nice, though.

.. another short update about nothing in particular:

* A new Human Resources Director from the Ukraine is scheduled to be interviewed this evening. "HOPE is our Business" being the (work-in-progress / early draft) motto. She will be group interviewed by the current oversight committee tomorrow evening with this evening being the informal "meet & greet".
* Military contractor has affirmed delivery (sometime this week or next) of defensive railgun systems for the upcoming Daedalus build project. Railgun emplacements to stand at around 14 feet in height.. well somewhere between 8 feet to 14 feet, I would think. Our lab doctorate's have been tapped to scrutinized the outer enclosure casing for thermal fractures and other possible critical failure flaws. The apparent rush order was probably due to growing instability of international political climate.
* No word yet from the contractor queried on possible shield upgrade from current functional (but energy hog) design model.
* Dyson Sphere to receive surface coverage of water to depth of 40 feet. Since our lab was unable to come up with a manufactured material with attenuating properties to that of water. The project went ahead with the KISS (Keep It Stupid Simple) design stratagem. Interior to no longer pose a health hazard to cosmic radiation.
* Early allied country demographic list of potential "colonists" to include botanists, astrophysicists, mechanical engineers, and supply chain personnel from Israel. My educated theory is two-fold.. (1): As a culture their daily lifestyle prospers despite living in a continual "powderkeg" dangerzone and are thus relatively acclimated to responding to sirens. (2): Politically speaking, in exchange for this opportunity, their government would more align their international policy to the interests of the United States.
* I found an instant caramel macchiato frappacino package mix which just needs a 1/2 cup of hot water. This will of course go into my survival kit.. minus a few packages for quality testing at work.
* Came home to find a package from a relative.. self heating instant ramen. I wonder if there are sliced mushrooms in it as advertised on the package. It was nice of them to see late night cheap noodles and think of me (I grinned in seeing this). Because I had just come back from grocery shopping and had a trunk load full of instant ramen.

-Life is meant to be taken out of context. :-)

Sry, busy day.. forgot that I only had breakfast and really nothing else all day. I should've included this in the above post this evening but will stick it here instead.

Tis more of a science byline than relating to anything in particular. The satellite which we launched some time ago and has been in a station keeping orbit relative to the Sun & the Earth. Well from data we've been receiving, it (seems) like a discovery has been made. In electricity we relate potentials to either being grouped as positive polarity or negative polarity (like any battery has a positive AND a negative aspect).

(*takes a nervous breath*)

A 3rd polarity has been (is "observed" the best word?) from the vantage point of the LaGrange parking orbit. It is loosely termed as a gravity polarity. Probably relating to how steep the slope is along a gravity well depression on the fabric of spacetime.

Image

I have been wondering the passed couple weeks if the artificial gravity which we created for the Dyson Sphere, was not differential "polarity" attraction (like in a magnet). But rather in that we effectively created a sloped gravity dimple in the fabric of spacetime and a nearby mass would then "fall" down that slope at a rate which reflects the value of that slope.

Goa'uld Healing Device Update
1st field trial.. mixed review

Reporting in on 2nd day being bedridden. Not sure how I got to this circumstance but that's how it goes. I may have been pushing myself too hard for way too long until my body decided on its own that some downtime was in order. Tuesday evening I stopped by my mother's to enjoy some quality time sharing supper with her. I was on the porch wicker swing checking my phone for the daily newsfeed. I "sensed" a bubble had popped and then I started shivering. Within my core there was no warmth, only cold. I drove home and out myself immediately to bed with a fleece throw on top of the covers. I woke up the next morning drenched in perspiration. No body aches, and I was feeling okay but still called into work that I was taking the week off to rest up. I felt okay.. until I had to get out of bed and felt cold and not okay.

My one accomplishment was getting up to make myself chicken noodle soup and drink electrolyte water while sitting on the porch letting the Sun warm up my skin. Other than this one accomplishment and a trip to the bathroom, I had spent the entire day in bed sleeping. I had asked the manager if she could bring the healing device over to try it on me in my condition. We were waiting for paperwork to be processed to use it on test subjects outside the facility. Since I was attached to the facility, it shouldn't be anything to worry about.

The manager used the prototype healing device in me but I didn't feel anything except a reduced headache when I asked for her to try and use it on my head. Since my body wasn't in "repair" mode as in healing from a physical injury. It's effectiveness was quite a bit diminished. It's a tool for physical recovery.. not an antibiotic, it would seem. That day came and went, and I'm still in bed. The only other presence that visits me is this headache. Oh, I found out that my eyes have felt tired since day 1 and I'm not interested in doing anything except sleeping. Even browsing in my smartphone feels like an uninterested chore. My eyes are sore and tired and the only thing I'm interested in seeing is the back of my eyelids. I guess I really did wear my body out from working so much.

"Work" in any form will have to be put on the back burner so I can focus on "rest".
.................

(..updated Thursday night, 11:18 pm)

Went out for Mexican this evening, after making the effort to try and get myself out of bed good and proper so my mum could (s)mother me like worried mother's tend to do.. Anyways after checking in on things within my particular circle of contacts, turns out I narrowed down the cause for my sudden demise of health. It wasn't a sixth sense worried about a wayward friend nor a psychic red flag warning about an unknown volcano about to erupt under my mum's house. No, no and again no (to the third thing you were just now thinking.. shame on you, btw). It was actually nothing as common nor terrestrial as those.. but rather Anubis. Seems my work associated with crystals and working out a theory to create a pocket dimension (or build an opening to one..?) within the new ZPM caught his attention. That wasn't the scary part.. he followed me home. Just because you were able to pull eggs from a dead chicken, suddenly everyone thinks you can walk on water. Didn't really notice any paranormal activity except the sudden deep chill sensation which was the first red flag. Nor me spending a whole day & night in bed asleep without repercussions. It was when I sat down this evening to do personal energy cleansing that my pendulum moving left in circles then right.. bring my attention to his presence. He wanted what all males want with a woman.. more definition of their own existence. It was when he entered my baby girl's room, that I womaned up and brought him back to reality. I activated the shield around my little girl's room (at least she will be safe) and confronted Anubis in the kitchen (my home turf.. not counting the couch). A girl's bedroom, nay even her house however humble.. is her private sanctuary, her temple of serenity. To trespass upon 5hat would be as unforgivable as trespassing upon a fair maiden's heart. As it is with mortals, so too it must be with ascended beings.. personal boundaries are to be respected. Thank you for not killing nor possessing us but I think you should leave. Not annoyed or angry, but a mix between amused and interested was the response fed back to me through pendulum. As he was too curious to leave, I balled up on the couch in the kitchen and wasted away watching anime. Somewhere between episode 8 & 9 of "Call if the Night" he got bored and left, only after revealing that he would leave a gift or two in which I would think of him when they came to bear fruit. With the pendulum confirming no one else in the house except me.. I breathed a sigh of relief and went to bed. Am now typing this before signing off for some needef rest, but inevitably will only find the deafening scream from each heartbeat. That was close.. too close.

Guess this still counts as a belated Halloween tidbit, even though it really happened. Believe it.. or not. Oh yeah, one more thing concerning the shield.. it was a gift of knowledge from my father-in-law. He was a selfish man, a Canadian transplant into what I would call American Victorian society in the upper Northeast colonial states. Family was into politics, way upper level.. Senator level to be frank. Don't know how he came by it, as it's strength was beyond anything which should be possible for mortal man (you know how men are.. short-sighted yet power hungry). But I counted him to be an observant man, and a very intelligent man. One who understood that alot of times it's not what you know, but rather who you know which determines your successful outcome in life. He represented one mind who wanted access to gate technology, we wanted the same in an effective shield. Two like-minded groups, then finding a means of agreement. He is dead now, and I'm connecting here through a false identity.. different color hair, everything. He has nothing more to say to me, and likewise I reciprocate the gesture. Having moved on from those naive times. Nothing else need be said.

Project Update: Asgard Plasma Cannon

Image

Time now is December 26, 9:57am (as I start typing this). It's been well.. 1 month and about 26 days since my last login. At the start of my online hiatus, the contractor finished an initial prototype of an energy based cannon. However the 8 foot tall armored housing for this proved, umm (what was the word they used?).. "not stable enough to handle the power output and would subsequently have been destroyed". So bummer, I know. In the interim (def: "in or for the intervening period; provisional or temporary duration of time"), work had been started to find ways to reinforce the housing in order to survive the recoil use of this energy beam. Detail of which follows:

Will only fire at user selected line-of-sight designated targets, unleashing a concentrated beam of energy that is able to burn through enemy armor and defenses. In cases where an enemy may be using a shielding energy, the cannon is able to siphon it off and use it to reinforce the beam's penetrating attack, quickly making a hole that is able to then bring the whole system down. The plasma cannon does have a recharge time which will (should?) shorten the more it engages (multiple targeted) enemy. -This is due to recharge effectiveness increasing subsequent to the higher operating temperatures (ie: sympathetic oscillating vibration) of continued use.

(*sigh*)

While this phase of the housing upgrade was being attended to, the contractor was put to productive capacity in seeing if the beam could be upgraded.. to essentially overload it if needed to do so, should a more durable and resilient enemy be encountered. So in the belief that idle hands soon leads to mischief (an old Amish saying), everyone was put to task to be busy.
......

Image

Delivery of the 5 railguns were received, general specifications fulfilled: Automated Defense System being a set of five railgun units, each appearing as a ten foot tall barrel with a rotating hemispheric top and a flat base. They are capable of rapid fire and will afix to any location designated with clamps. They target line-of-sight designated targets and will "handshake" with other railguns which will continue to track designated targets which come into their own line-of-sight in order to continue defensive fire along their own firing arc.
......

And about a month later, as the plasma beam cannon was being refitted with shock stabilizers as well as structural reinforcement, the contractor brought back components for the "overload" upgrade which was requested of them. Which was provided through some measure of frustration. The overview is as follows, but essentially.. we now have a working Asgard Beam, if only as a option of last resort. Just hope the housing refit holds.

The "Overload" capability gives an extra measure of impressive offensive penetrative force to all things it can be applied against. Exponentially increasing an existing coherent carrier beam in reaching even deeper levels of penetration in times of crisis. It may, theoretically, bleed into the core of an energy barrier, completely disabling it's ability to reform. This "overload" power capacity is very circumstantial and will not always work when applied. But when it does, anything it hits.. it destroys.
....

Image

And lastly something of a tidbit to entice those patient among you. The theoretical model speculative workup design for creating a pocket dimension has progressed to the next phase.. creating a strong enough vessel in which to (hopefully) house it. One of our most senior members is now endeavoring to create a resulting cascading doppler shift within a crystalline construct. Working hypothesis is as thus:

The altered pocket dimension would (should) be invulnerable to outside intrusion, acting akin to quantum entangled singularities, sharing states and exchanging information (reality is essentially an E8 lattice construct of information, not dissimilar to the discovery of a self correcting code found at the base level of existence) with one another. It is able to extract a limited amount of energy from the closest Black Hole to it, storing it, and this can then be used as a power source when placed within a suitable housing. If the housing is not suitable, the housing (an immediate areas in successive zones) would be destroyed.

So there you have it, everything in a nutshell delivered before the lunch crowd is to hits the buffet bar. Not quite as flashy as figuring out the mathematical progression of the harmonic in each given pattern relative to it's spectral equivalent.. but it'll do. Which puts me to mind of my favorite t-shirt.

..Science isn't all a bed of roses

Image

At this moment while typing these words onto the forum, a little 9 year old girl lay unconscious on a couch from an overdose. (Maybe "overload" is more accurate?) She is such a willing person, always wanting to help. I think a couple years ago she was homeless when she first caught my attention. I contacted her to see if she could come over because I had the thought to talk with her about astronomy. Specifically why her energy level was usually a roller coaster ride from month to month. Looking at the light bulb handing from the ceiling, I picked up a bag of trail mix and a round mirror. I related the lightbulb to the Sun, the trail mix to the earth and the mirror to the moon (so I tend to oversimplify things). I showed how the full light of the Sun would bounce off the moon and be cast upon the dark side of the earth. This was when the moon was "full". Then I raised the bag of trail mix to half block the light reaching the mirror, which only cast a half circle onto the shadow side of the trail mix bag. This was representative of a "half moon". Then I raised the trail mix bag to fully block the light from reaching the mirror. This would essentially relate to the moon being fully within the shadow of the earth and be known as a "new moon". The little girl began to understand why her energy at night was like it was when the moon was full, and why she was naturally tired during the nights when the moon was in the earth's shadow. Yep, a budding science major may be in her future from that little bit of astronomy. Anyways, she's been experiencing energy swings (like mood swings but with her energy) for quite a while, since before she came to have met me a couple years ago. So I thought on a way to artificially recharge her energy, which should work.. probably will work.. theoretically may work. Anyways, she was here.. I was here.. and I happened to have this energy source handy to try out. So I changed gears from astronomy to something more productive.

This evening in the lab, I wanted to try out a new experiment. I had sidelined my current work on a secondary stellar core design, in order to sidebar with this experiment. Upon arriving at the lab, I had asked her to stand near the source for the transfer, to close her eyes and open her heart to believe in me.. to trust in me. Then I activated the transfer. Sometimes, things don't exactly go as you hope for them to. Science isn't all a bed of roses, sometimes you encounter thorns. But as I look at it, the fragrant roses are still there, beneath a bit of discomfort.

Following up from the success we achieved with the beforehand mentioned energy healing device which employs a subtle energy transfer. There was a test trial of a higher magnitude to transfer energy from one source to a recipient (the little girl) in order to determine how minute (Old French from late Latin minuta, feminine (used as a noun) of minutus ‘made small’) an energy transfer could be registered from the girl's senses. As you know, young people are more sensitive to notice energy spectrum which become dulled (blinded?) to older generations. Don't know really how much was transferred into her, as we were rationing the amount to only half of the current energy level manageable by the source. We knew the source had a higher level.. pheww... by a magnitude of.. umm.. a factor of 10 levels?.. maybe?.. or so? We waited until the girl's own energy was nearly fully depleted before conducting this transfer. Within about 15 seconds of bridging the connection, a flood of energy poured into her and she subsequently fell to the floor unconscious. Her foster parent was still at work, so an elderly foster grandparent who was available was contacted to be with her while she was lain onto the lobby couch. A woman doctor who was on speed dial, was also contacted to come assess the patient and monitor her recovery (rest). My logic states that her body probably received more energy than what her body could handle, so it went into rest mode in order to protect her consciousness. In effect, her body simply needs to reset in order to accommodate operating at a higher level of energy. When she wakes up, everything should be okay. I would think the residual effects of the experiment should last about a week. Then her energy would start plummeting back to previous norm levels. Then she would be right as rain.

Umm.. yeah.

..........

update on the little girl, the attending physician recommended she be moved to the nearby clinic for overnight observation. Her status is stable but still unconscious. Her attending guardian isn't really wanting to talk to me at the moment.

My sympathies were expressed as the patient was carried out the door. I sincerely do hope she recovers, we still have other experiments to do.

(I crumble up the sandwich foil wrapper and toss it to the corner to roll off the overflowing laboratory waste basket). Great, now whose going to clean this up since the cleaning girl isn't here?
