David, you mentioned that in the 60s

"They were willing to look at everything and anything that would get them to where they wanted to go and one of the most important things they looked at was ESP, because they knew that if they could nail that down the rest would fall into place. It was a good strategy and it did move them ahead, but like a lot of things they went off course and got lost in the fog."

You want to try to go back there and look again?


Elizabeth, would like a Mikado answer to your interrogative?

Well, why waste time, I already know your answer.

The control of the magnetic field of the universe is the Merkaba. Those that have been able to use this are sometimes referred to as Avatars. Many have achieved this in part and some have excelled, the most famous was a man named Jesus.

When metaphysical and science become one.....


table top model

You were asking about a table top model. It relates to POP which means proof of principal or proof of performance. That's where you devise a small model of the invention and if it works you scale it up.
My favorite was in the 1960 version of The Time Machine where the hero shows his friends an elegant and tiny working replica of the big unit. He pushes the lever forward and the unit disappears with appropriate sound effects.

So Jim

Am I correct? are you a MAC person?

I thought I could catch the glimer of an excellent Graphic artist on your excellent website. Your website looks a bit like Andrew's "Qualight website" in that, -it presents a conservative approach towards the presentation of a scientific idea. I like it!

How about digital domains? are you interested in the digital commons and future internet, Information Domain Hyperspace.

Have you ever cruised on ?

How about Virtual Mars Rover?

Exploration is wonderful ain't it?


Mac Attack

Saw your cartoon, cool.

I was a computer illiterate although I read much about them until the 90's when they were so available I could no longer resist. I bought a Hong Kong pc clone (better service). One of the first things I did was play a game called Captain. I had no idea how to make it work so I asked, what do I do now? And the answer was, don't ask me, you'r the captain. I was astounded at the time but I put myself to the task of learning msdos, no windows then. As one of the worst self teachers, the going was slow. But then, thankfully, someone stole my pc clone and I got a Mac. Suddenly, (almost) everything worked with a click, the first real windows app copied from the Xerox secret computer. So where's that guy who conceived of the system created by Xerox? Amega?

Pc's are over 90% of the world market but Mac's filled a niche for a better machine. All of the movies, games, advertising and communications, other creative and technological stuff is done on a mac. I have two. The office mac, a 450mgz model, one of the first G4's. And, the studio mac, a 1.25ghz chip with the same amount of ram, Protools runs the audio studio.

So if you want a Mac, the iMac best one looks really cool. 23 inch cinema display, mmm, G5.

Sheesh, I promised myself I wouldn't fall into the raising of the flag as a mac guy and look what I've done.

And in closing, I saw a clip of Bill Gates saying the Mac is the best.

Except to say, if there never was a pc there never would have been a mac. For some years considered a toy by experts but now considered the smoother and more intuitive machine. When I didn't know how to do something I would think of the most convoluted ways of trying to get the job done and when it was revealed how to do something, it was always the simplest on a mac.

Our macs here at the seehear ranch are not so new but so long as they just work, we'll be happy campers.
ps, if you want one then just get one

its the intuition Mac

I loved the last exchange, but I don't know what the heck you guys are talking about. Not important! As long as you guys know ...... I did catch something that rang a bell with me ..... don't ask how or why, but it was the phrase you used Jim .......... " but now considered the smoother and more intuitive machine. OK. That works.

Remember Jim when I said that we need to all fly under our own banners here .... good to see yours being hoisted. Elizabeth

You see I Knew it!!!!!!

Which cartoon are you speaking of? I've done many!!!

Wonderful and Just as I thought. I have found an ally finally.
Yup.... I'm stuck on a darned PC, and my Mac is dissasembled and waiting to be revived in a NEW G5 with a googleplexed ram.

I started off on a LISA after farting around with microprocessors in the 70s. Lisa was Steve Job's daughter's name and it was also the very first practical use of a GUI interface of the type everyone now uses. (the REAL precursor to the MAC) All thanks to XEROX Parc and those goofy geeks.(see Andrew I do appreciate some things)

So yesssss indeedeee I am a long time Macperson also but I've become bilingual and I was forced to assemble my own PCs over the past several years. I've learned one thing. There is way too much that can go wrong with PC if you let the user tweek everything. The problem with anything operated by microsoft is that it's too much work learning about everything you can do..... so you end up doing NOTHING but farting around changing stuff in the operating system.

With a Mac..... you just open up your computer and create something new instead of farting around with all the different buggy interfaces that you constantly have to update and conflict manage.

The nice thing about my MAC is that I still have computer files that were created on that LISA and they still work, so they are saved and ready for use in future projects. Can anyone else here tell me that they have working 3 and one half inch diskettes with data that was created in 1982?

I am getting a brand new Mac here soon. It will cost a lot of money but it's worth it. I will keep my four other computers too, but My old Dissasembled Mac hard drives and data files I created on them (I've had three macs)are the very best work I've done over the past twenty years. The data itself is worth more than my machines.(except for my spectrum analyzer of course).


Got to keep reading and translating here.

If you guys keep this Mac -v- PC thing going too much longer, I'm going to start a discussion of Catholic -v- Protestant, or Shiite -v- Sunni.

This much I'll say for Mac: they're commercials have ALWAYS been better.
