HISTORY

In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist’s desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.

From January 2006 until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moskow etc.

At the moment there is no ascertained relation or common trait among the people that have dreamed of seeing this man. Moreover, no living man has ever been recognized as resembling the man of the portrait by the people who have seen this man in their dreams.

The aim of this website is:
- to help those who have seen this man in their dreams and to foster communication among them;
- to understand who this man is and why he appears in an apparently pattern-less array of situations in the dreams of such diverse human subjects.

Can you Durzelle Jupiter Ascending?

Durza might not have been a splice but in the hierarchy of things a shade didn’t rank much above it. His life had been going from one master to the other until his latest master had left him to be inherited by one of his offspring’s recurrences. Laycin had been his favourite child, apparently, so he had left her recurrence, if she where ever to materialize and claim her share, a great deal in his will, including a hot commodity: Earth.

Left adrift he was pleased to find himself hired by his former master’s oldest child, who used him for centuries to bicker with his other two siblings. But it all changed one day with the news that a recurrence of Laycin had been detected on Earth, a young librarian called Belle French. His master, seeing a chance to seize the inheritance of the unsuspecting Earthling, orders him to kidnap her and bring her to him. While Durza has every intention of following through, thinking a harsh master he knows is better than the unknown fate that awaits him as a servant to the human female he cannot help but wish to please her almost as soon as he meets her. She’s royalty and he’s rightfully hers and it’s never felt so pleasant to be owned before. The merest brush of her skin on his gives him a sense of peace he’s never felt before and so he decides to alter the course of things, save his human mistress, and look after her, resolute to throw her in a pool of Regenex as soon as the first sings of age begin to show. The only way to be hers forever, after all, is if she lives forever.

“Determination of pre-computed exact steady and time-periodic solutions can be computationally extremely intensive: The cost of the full 3D canine ventricles simulation is 500 supercomputer CPU hours for one cardiac second. However, once these solutions are obtained, they offer a radically new understanding of the spatiotemporally chaotic cardiac dynamics as a walk through a repertoire of corresponding recurrent patterns.”

Fibonacci Series.

The Fibonacci series covers the simplest golden section sequence which can be expressed in whole-numbers (the golden section of 89 being 55, and that of 55 being 34, etc.):

2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 …

In it each number equals the sum of the two preceding numbers (that is, 2+3 =5, 3+5=8, 5+8=13, etc.).

The sequence approaches nearer and nearer the proportion of the geometrical golden section i.e. the irrational key-number of the geometric mean: the square of every number is equal to the product of the numbers preceding and following it - with the difference of plus or minus 1.

The Fibonacci series embodies the low of natural growth. In the fir-cone starting from the centre, a system of spirals runs in the right and left directions, in which the number of spirals always result in the values of the Fibonacci sequence: 3, 5, 8 and 13 spirals.

A similar setting can be seen on the sunflower, pineapple, chamomile, dandelion, marguerite, cactus, likewise in the arrangement of leaves on the stem and in the horns of some ruminating animals.

This rather fascinating article explores the science of Jupiter Ascending (yes, really) and you may be surprised to find that the film actually handles scientific concepts more intelligently than many of its counterparts. I found the section on recurrence especially interesting, particularly this part:

“But even if Jupiter’s initial DNA sequence was identical to this woman’s, they probably wouldn’t really be identical by strict definition, for the same reason that identical twins aren’t truly identical. This is partially due to the environment- and ancestor-controlled phenomenon known as epigenetics. The way Jupiter lives, and even the way her parents and grandparents lived, affects which genes are expressed within her genome, potentially causing physical, medical, and behavioral differences from someone with her exact genetic sequence. It goes without saying that a maid would grow up in a different environment than an intergalactic queen.

“And some of the characters seem to realize this. Titus Abrasax (Douglas Booth) is quick to point out the ways in which Jupiter differs from his deceased mother. Yet Balem Abrasax (Redmayne) seems to actually believe that Jupiter is his mother, speaking to her directly as if she had arisen from the dead. Kalique doesn’t seem to know what to think.”

For a movie that’s generally treated as a dumb blonde, Jupiter Ascending handles some big ideas in exceptionally interesting ways.

Recurrences in JA

Something I’ve been thinking about lately are how the Recurrences in the JA universe are treated/looked upon, etc. 

Like, we get it. Jupiter was the “reincarnation” of Seraphi Abrasax: the late matriarch of the Abrasax Industries, the head of the most powerful dynasty in the universe, etc etc etc. It’s in Jupiter’s DNA to be what Seraphi was. 

Except not really. 

Let me explain. 

Literally the only reason Jupiter got anything out of this “Recurrence” deal was because Seraphi decided to leave something in her will for her Recurrence. And since the object in question, Earth, was entitled to Balem before discovering Jupiter’s existence, that peeved him off and is what got her into this mess. Without Seraphi’s decision to screw her son over, Jupiter wouldn’t have received jack. 

So then, why was she referred to as “Your Highness” and stuff like that?? Literally all she got was one planet handed to her. That’s not much to be proud of as an Entitled. Why is she as respected and prioritized as Seraphi when she is most certainly not Seraphi, nor as powerful as Seraphi was? What’s the deal??

Her DNA made her an Entitled, but it was Seraphi’s choice that made her special. 

This entire thing could be debunked if someone just reminded me that Seraphi also left in her will the right for her Recurrence to become the Head of the Abrasax industries. But as far as my memory goes, all Seraphi left for her Recurrence was Earth. The rest was divided among her children. So even with Balem out of the way, there was still Titus and Kalique, who both owned far more than Jupiter. She’s not even a head of the Abrasax family, right? So then why is she getting treated like supreme royalty when she’s technically just another Entitled that happened to look like Seraphi?

Recurrence Relations

How to solve them?

There are several techniques to unwrap a recurrence relation and obtain a closed form that is easy to solve. Some of these techniques include:

  1. Substitution method
  2. Recursion-Tree method
  3. Master method

1. Substitution method:

  • Guess the form of the solution. (the difficult step)
  • Show that the solution works by using mathematical induction.

Perhaps one of the most useful ways that help us find a good guess is looking at the first few terms of the recurrence. Then we can begin to see a pattern, from which we can guess the form of a solution. Then the solution is tested and proved to be correct using mathematical induction.

2. Recursion-Tree method:

  • Helps to come up with a good guess for the substitution method.
  • Useful for recurrences describing the running time of a divide-and-conquer algorithm.
  • Each node in a Recursion-Tree represents the cost of a single subproblem.

3. Master method:

Very useful for Recurrences of the form: T(n) = aT(n/b) + f(n).

  • Split the problem into a subproblems each of size n/b.
  • Subproblems are solved recursively, each in time T(n/b).
  • Dividing problem and combining solutions of subproblems is captured by f(n).
Scene From A Marriage: Bobby's Plight

“I’m afraid of dying.”

She moves over to me and rubs my bald head, bald from the intensive, 21-day experimental treatment I’ve undergone to try and choke my deathless cancer.

“I don’t know when I got to be so afraid again, but here I am.”

“Things have changed, right? I mean, things have changed. Our life is going to change.” She holds me at the edge of my side of the bed, the light from the bed side table glows orange, aggressive but only for its own corner, the rest of the room is sunk in shadow. As she holds me I can feel her belly now nine months along. Sometimes if I stare long enough at it I can watch the little one’s butt move from one side to the other seeking room and comfort. “Everything is going to change.” She tells me very softly and very gently. Recently I’ve imparted this fear of dying so much that I think she’s sick of it, sick of answering for it, that it makes me so tired.

I don’t look at her as she holds me and tells me this. I have my eyes closed. We rock gently there in the open, almost vulgar, glare of the light. It’s like the world could see us. 

“I swear. I wish I didn’t always feel this way.” 

“I know. I know.” 

All of a sudden I remember when I’d try to tell my old students, when I used to teach, how hard it is to impart real “Love” because of how awesome is the failure of language to do what it’s supposed to do. “‘For example,’ I’d tell them. ‘Take Bobby here. He might want to tell his girlfriend how much he loves her.’ [class laughs – Bobby turns red]. ‘So, Bobby here, he tells her one day, ‘I love you;’ and what do you know, his girl says, ‘I love you’ back. She tells him, ‘I love you, too, Bobby.’ But here’s the hitch: Bobby might hear something in her voice, some little thing in the way she said it, and he might wonder, ‘Hey, does her Love mean my Love. Is her ‘I love you’ my ‘I love you’? [my voice trails off] [and to no one in particular, I say] Bobby’s question is a good one.” 

I feel Bobby’s plight with language now because I wonder deep down if my wife does “know” I wasn’t always so scared of something I’ve no control over; but something’s cracked in me. 

Earlier, the radioman said that there were great summer storms coming our way. He said, “Y’all in it’s path.” The storm is coming on strong now. There’s sideways rain and big chunks of hail. The lights are dimming. The thunder is loud. The lightening is bright. It’s getting violent, like the earth is readying for something we can’t understand. It’s all so incomprehensible. 

As the lights flicker, she asks, “You know I know, right?” 

likelightinglass asked:

Regarding the "my deepest condolences" line-I think in a universe where recurrences are considered an extension of the previous incarnation, people regard the death of Seraphi as something that happened to Jupiter. And it's polite to offer condolences on a tragic event in someone's past. But it begs the question-how common do you think recurrences are? Would it be possible to have a second genetic recurrence of Seraphi during Jupiters lifetime? How would that work legally speaking?

That’s a good observation and a perfectly valid reading. The laugh makes me think that there’s something more sinister to the comment, since he’s clearing finding humour in Jupiter’s ignorance (he guffaws after she says an awkward “thank you”). In short, I imagine that he had an idea of what was in store for Jupiter.

Your second question is a very interesting one. I think it’s safe to say that recurrences are deeply unusual - the statistical probability of the same genes recurring in the exact same order in a new body is tiny to the point of non-existence, though that doesn’t mean it’s entirely impossible (as Jupiter’s existence demonstrates). In light of that, there being a second recurrence of Seraphi in Jupiter’s lifetime is pretty much impossible (though you could not definitively say it wouldn’t happen). Let’s remember that it took over 90,000 years for Jupiter to be born and, as far as we know, she’s the first recurrence of Seraphi - in short, many, many generations passed before Seraphi recurred.

As for the legal implications of the same person effectively existing in two separate bodies at the same time, we know nothing. However, it’s interesting to remark that one of the earliest plot synopses for JA had Jupiter being targeted for assassination by the queen of the universe (presumably Seraphi Abrasax). In that early version of the plot, it seems that Jupiter was deemed a threat by Seraphi herself, which raises all sorts of questions. I can only imagine that that version of the film didn’t revolve around inheritance law, since Jupiter couldn’t really inherit anything while Seraphi was still alive!

So many questions! Does anyone have any further thoughts on this? We’re basically delving into headcanon territory, but I’m good with that.
