OK, so here’s my new pet theory: As the Earth gets to this place where we cross the galactic ecliptic (December on?) we enter a different kind of space. “What the hell is he talking about now?” you’re wondering.
Just so. Well, it all started when I was writing up the explanation of qubits – which in quantum computing works…kinda/sorta…..like a conventional bit in computing. Except that a qubit is dimensioned into 9 (some say more of less) different dimensions.
And here’s where qubits are magical: In bit-based computing, the more complicated a password is, the more difficult it is to crack. Sounds easy enough. But, in quantum computing (world of qubits) the hard a bit-based problem is, the easier it is to solve.
This apparent contradiction comes because in the quantum world, a simple answer would be found in all dimensions where the problem is inspected. But, the more complicated the problem, the fewer dimensions where the solution can be found. Until, with let’s say a 55-character password, the answer pops out of a quantum computer almost instantly…magic, huh?
Which gets me to thinking: OK…so if Earth is passing through some kind of a “center”….would it be possible that we would pass through multiple dimensional crossroads….and could that explain why we have seen an increase in reported cases of things just “disappearing” only to pop up at a different time in a different – and sometimes distant – place?
With that as our thinking wrench this morning, let’s consider how that would apply to the report from Kevin, who, until recently, thought this whole Wujo stuff was not to be seriously considered…
“I’ve been somewhat skeptical about the wuju where objects disappear and show up somewhere else later. That was until what my wife and I experienced with my daughter’s glasses.
Our routine is to put my son to bed then move on to my daughter. While I was reading to my son, my wife put my daughter in bed and put her glasses by her water glass on top of the remote. After I got thru with my son I went to her room (which is right next to his…) for the kiss goodnight and to shut her TV off. To do that I had move her glasses, which are pink by the way, in order to pick up the remote. I placed them with the legs around her water glass. No more than 15 minutes later my wife asks me if I moved her glasses. Sure, two inches to left. She says they are missing.
We took that room apart…quietly….literally..took out drawers, looked behind the dresser. Nothing. So my daughter got to wear her spares to school the next day. The next day after work I took her room apart, nothing. Looked all over the house, nothing.
Today (two days later) I get a text from my wife that she found the glasses.
They where in her SUV in the middle of the back seat sitting like someone took them off and set them dead center . The kids had not been in the truck and she’d even run errands yesterday and there’s no way with leather seats the glasses would be in the middle of the back seat after a few turns. Plus she used the back seat for some bags after her errands.
My daughter never left her room the first night when I moved her glasses and in the time between I left the room and my wife found them missing I was in the kitchen which has the only door to the garage….no little person came by….plus the door was locked.
We’re stumped. We looked at what we think are the logical possibilities, but this doesn’t make sense. ”
Well, yes, it does make sense…since it obviously happened. It just doesn’t make sense to us because of our specific religious/scientific culturally-embedded limited thinking.
We need to be really clear on these kind of reports: They happen. Not often, not always, but they really do happen. Which leaves us with the simpler task of figuring out why.
We find in historical records some cases where it wasn’t just glasses involved in the disappearing act – it was people as well. Two of the better known cased, that of the James Worson disappearance in 1873 (on September 3rd) is one of my favorites to ponder. But so too is the case of Orion Williamson.
As we wind up these last days of summer, it is an interesting concept to ponder, especially because not only does it happen to glasses and people, but apparently whole encampments of people. Go look up the lost Roanoke Colony sometime…or better, read the account of how an entire Inuit Eskimo settlement of 2,000 people just disappeared in the fall of 1930.
Should make for some comfort that the glasses returned from their adventures not far way from their starting point. But what of these others?
Feller by the name of Ray has a dandy:
“You wrote in Tuesday’s US column:
The Keynesian answer to the recession has been to print money and throw it at the problems. But, due to the crappy conditions in congress, we didn’t really do a big enough stimulus to matter – add debt and muddle-through. We actually needed one that would be ~2-3% of GDP to really get things rolling, We got a pathetic fraction of that and as a result we get what? A pathetic recovery – if you’ll buy that loose a description of slogging along in neutral for years on end.
Mr. Bush dropped $868bln at the end of September, 2008 — $700bln for TARP and $168bln as an economic stimulus. Mr. Obama tossed an additional $787bln onto the craps table on February 17, 2009. The US GDP for 2k8 was ~$14,300bln. ISTM Mr. Bush’s stimulus amounted to 1.17% of GDP and Mr. Obama’s stimulus, which kicked the economy less than five months later, tipped the scales at 5.5% of GDP. Are you protesting that the stimuluses (stimuli?) were too large, or are my numbers or thinking, somehow in error?
I guess that all depends on how much of the Keynesian Kool-Aid you’ve had to drink. Here’s the logic, since you asked.
First, the 1.5-3% stimulus level is based on a kind of steady-state depressed economy.
The difference being that in the 1930′s Keynesian case, America was a rowboat that had been filled with water. China’s in that position now and when the rowboat is nearly filled with plain water, 1.5-3% will make the boat rowable again.
On the other hand, the 2008-2009 period was different. Not only did we have the rowboat filling with water, but it had its bottom blow out from under it. So in Keynesian terms, the repairs to the blown out bottom of the boat (TARP, auto and bank bailouts) don’t really count as economic stimulus. Just emergency repairs to the rotten hull.
By the Keynesian account, only the modest $168 billion counted…and I don’t remember if the couple of billion in Cash for Clunkers was in that or not. So like one tenth of one percent?
To put it another way, economic stimulus is the 2-year 2% of GDP aspirin…What happened to the economy in 2008/2009 was a gunshot wound to the stomach…so we had to stop the bleeding before we can talk about recovery and getting on aspirin – there’s be two different medical bills in the latter case.
I don’t rule out a run to Dow 16,000 (and gold to $4,000-$5,00, silver $200) if the jobs numbers continue to improve. Which is why we strive to have a win-in-any-case personal financial plan. If things go to crap, we do fine. Things run to the moon? Fine there, too.
And with food prices heading up, a couple of weeks the fall/winter garden goes in…

Disruptive Technology: Teleportation
If there is one thing that keeps the PowerThatBe from wiping out all us “useless eaters” it’s that while factory automation can indeed make a bunch of things, if there’s going to be a New World Order of any size, it had been keep at least some of us around to move goods about or there won’t be any gasoline, food, transportation system, and so on. Unless, that is, a breakthrough in something as far-fetched as teleportation is in the works. So a sideways glance into the labs this weekend after we recycle the Friday rollercoaster rides both on the earthquake front as well as the financial side of things. Got gold? First up this morning we’re going to talk about Ben Bernanke and the magic of Hollow-Point Money….which unlike hollow-point lead, can’t even stop a loaf of bread on the shelf at Wal-Mart…Money’s point is what? Hollow…of course!
