inverse of time

Aang: Well, I met with this Guru who was supposed to help me master the Avatar State, and control this great power. But to do it, I had to let go of someone I love, and I just couldn't.


Iroh: Perfection and power are overrated. I think you were very wise to choose happiness and love.

“The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald

If the concept of vulnerability always operates within a tactical  field, how do theoretical affirmations of vulnerability enter into that  field? Can such affirmations ever avert the risk of being appropriated by paternalism? At stake is whether this dialectical inversion—which can, at one time, assert the hypervulnerability of those in dominant positions of power and, at another, rely on the presumptive invulnerability of those with power—can be refuted. Further, can that refutation give way to a notion of bodily vulnerability linked with practices of resistance in the service of social and political justice?
—  Judith Butler, “Rethinking Vulnerability and Resistance.”

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
They were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

“Time in a Bottle” (by Jim Croce)

One of the saddest yet beautiful songs by the late Jim Croce. After hearing his wife was pregnant, he wrote it for his unborn son. What makes it sad is that his son was born in 1971 and Jim died in a plane crash in 1973. The lyrics are about mortality, an utmost desire to be with someone for as long as possible.

Watching The Zygon Inversion for the first time

(I’m getting closer and closer to the season finale and extremely worried.)

(And yes, I decided to use screenshots for DW reactions as well.)

-Oh boy

-Hoo boy

-Whoa wait… Clara’s okay? But why are the clock numbers flipped? Is she on the other side of a mirror or something? Is she locked in her consciousness?

-WHY IS THE TOOTHPASTE BLACK

-I like how the slanted camera angles make everything dizzy and look so much more… wrong.

-Wow what a great, totally-not terrifying start to an episode

-PHEW he lives

Videogaming, the hard way.

-Oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit… OH SHIT

-What why are they cleaning up electric ash

-Who’s that

-Oh shit

-Oh shit

-CLOSE THE DAMN DOOR

-LOCK THE GODDAMN DOOR

-Oh shit oshit oshit o shit

-Is he like a good Zygon or a regular guy that got turned into a Zygon?

-Yeah I’m going for the latter, if he already was a Zygon he wouldn’t be calling for help in plain sight

-Oh ok they’re alive then

-I like those three chairs standing there like ‘yeah we’re fine nevermind’

-Nice British flag parachute you’ve got the– wait isn’t that considered blaspheme of the national flag or something?

-what why what’s in his browser history I’m suddenly very worried

-”This is us being blown up with a big bazooka”

-Did Clara seriously memorize the locations of the letters on her smartphone keypad?

-That’s a hell of an ominous font for text messages, Doctor.

-WHOa the mirror

-THAT’S A PICTURE OF THE FIRST DOCTOR

-But what does the Osgood Box exactly DO?

-You’ve got some anger issues there, Bonnie.

-”Doctor John Disco”
 Why did you ditch the Smith?

-Doctor you’re creepy

-You’re all creepy

-”Don’t call me Zyjello”

-*gasp* THE WINK

-IT’S THE REAL CLARA

-Bonnie you youtube jerk

-Holy shit

-Yeah but if you’re REALLY good at lying through your teeth without blinking an eye heartbeats aren’t gonna help

-But barbeques don’t stink…

-Oh indeed.

-I rest my case.

-BONNIE THAT’S A SUICIDE MISSION WTF

-HOW ABOUT YOU TRY GOING ABOUT THIS A BIT MORE CIVILLY

-But why can’t I feel MY pulse when I press my fingers against my wrist

-Is there something wrong with me or is the skin on my fingers too thick

-I CAN’T FEEL MY PULSE

-My heart’s beating alright but what the fuck happened to my pulse

-Bezzle?

-wut?

-he can turn back now?

-I take back my earlier argument, looks like he WAS a Zygon from the start.

-Follow the guy who tased you. Good choice.

-”I want to live… This is my home…”

-Why is he so distressed? If he’s a Zygon, why does transforming hurt him? Can;t he change at will?

-I like how she brought the whole pod along just so she could gloat to Clara and because she’s too lazy to go back to her later

-Bug shaped comm, nice.

-You take the blue one, the story ends. You take the red one, you– oh wait wrong franchise.

-AHAHAHA YOU EXPECTED RESULTS BUT NO, MORE BUTTONS FOR YOU! AHAHAHAHA

-Buttonception.

-Turns out it’s the real Kate after all

-”Why does peacekeeping always involve killing?”

-Because not everyone wants to be peaceful and some of them will go against peace until they die?

-Serious talk aside, the boxes are pretty.

-Red button 1: Kills all Zygons
 Red button 2: Kills everyone in London
 Blue button 1: Unmasks all Zygons
 Blue button 2: Cancels Zygon ability to change form

-Well if that’s true the Zygons went through a whole lot of shit for some goal they don’t even know exactly about.

-That’s some really true words there

-Doctor what kind of drugs did you take

-And were they labelled “Late evening TV show host”

-Eh he’s serious again

-”I fought in a bigger war than you will ever know, I did worse things than you could ever imagine, and when I close my eyes, I hear more screams than anyone could ever be able to count!”

-shit

-I think I saw that speech quoted somewhere in a YouTube comment section one. I had no context back then, but now I do and… oh.

-nonoNONON– oh wait she’s just closing the lid. that’s good. good kate.

-If she suddenly changes her mind back and slaps the button I will fucking scream

-Thank you for sparing my vocal chords.
 That being said…

I was reminded of this

-THE MOMENT

-*VIETNAMTIME WAR FLASHBACKS*

-Finally, a happy ending I can get behind.

-”Totally And Radically Driving In Space”

-I SAW THAT ON YOUTUBE COMMENTS AND I THOUGHT THOSE WERE JUST JOKES BUT NOOO THEY WERE REFERENCES

-Did Clara whisper something in her ear

-*gasP* DUN DUN DUN
 IT’S SEVENTH DOCTOR OSGOOD

-oKAY WHAT

-THE REBEL LEADER’S AN OSGOOD NOW

-”ZYJELLA” dammit doctor

-”Are you a boy or girl?”
 “Human.”
 “But what’s your gender?”
 “I’m a kid.”
 “What’s in your pants?”
 “Determination.”

-Thanks fucking goodness that actually ended well, I was so nervous

Inverse Falls –now you all need to strike a pose

the first time I drew them all in one pic I think

anonymous asked:

Hi! Could you do Knight of Space please?

Sure, no problem.

So, the Knight is the active exploitation class, exploiting and weaponizing their aspect. As a result, the Knight of Space exploits and weaponizes Space, the aspect of creation, beginnings, form, and creativity. The inverse is the Rogue of Time, and the passive counterpart is the Page of Space.

The Knight of Space, like any Knight, is insecure in their aspect. They put up a facade to hide what they feel are deficiencies with their aspect. Dave acted aloof, like he didn’t care about things and didn’t have the time to deal with it, but in reality was very clingy and cared a lot. Karkat wore a loud, angry mask and got pissed off easily, but actually cared possibly too much about his friends. Finally, while we know little of her, it’s safe to surmise that Latula’s “radical girl” persona was a facade to hide her anxious, intellectual side. The Knight of Space might claim to be a simple person, without creativity and artistic sense. They would seemingly dismiss these things, while inwardly being anxious and insecure about them. However, this is not the only possibility. Space is an aspect of nurturing, and this would more than likely end up being the “mom friend”. They might act like they don’t care, or don’t love their friends as much as they really do, but in the end they would be the responsible one who cared the most. Space players in general are friendly people most of the time, and this would be no exception. They would be cheerful and approachable. In regards to their creative side, theirs would revolve more around changing what is already there in new ways rather than creating something entirely new. They would use what already exists, and change it to make something entirely new. However, they may not react very well to compliments about their creations, dismissing praise and thinking the other person was just pitying them. If they develop well, they will be able to see the value in their work and become better with Space than ever.

Power-wise, this is an interesting one. They are a very creative, clever combatant, applying Space in very interesting ways. They might make themselves or their weapon bigger or faster, and would move through space seamlessly. They would be unencumbered by any of their surroundings, moving quickly and elegantly. They would also be skilled with various portal tactics; moving themselves around, moving objects around, capturing attacks in portals, etc.

Lastly, as this is a Knight, I feel I should talk about their overall session. Knights are always in a session that lacks as much of their aspect as it should. Dave’s session started too early. Karkat’s session was full of conflict and weak bonds. Latula’s session had people not thinking clearly, likely one of the factors that caused it to be such a disaster. The Knight of Space’s session may lack creativity. People might not be very innovative with their battle techniques or the items they make. This might not sound so bad, but come the endgame it’s going to bite them if not fixed. Alternatively, it could lack literal space. Everything might be too close together. I’m not entirely sure how this would affect the session, but with the right combination of factors and circumstances maybe Game Over-esque shenanigans could occur? People throwing planets and such. The most dangerous possibility though is a lack of creation. As in, trouble with the Genesis Frog. AKA a Space player’s entire duty. A skilled and competent Knight of Space could overcome it, but it would be hard.

And that’s the Knight of Space. Powerful and creative, but with a hard session ahead of them.

The funny thing (in special relativity) about Lorentz boosts (which speed you up or down in some direction) is that they don’t form a subgroup of the Lorentz group (which also includes spatial rotations*). So the composition (i.e. serial application) of two non-colinear boosts is equivalent to a combined boost and rotation (in either order).

This leads to the phenomenon of Wigner rotation - we can actually impart angular momentum to a body by applying a series of (non-colinear) boosts, in the absence of applied (external) torque! The net rotation resulting from a series of boosts that return the body to its original velocity is called Thomas precession. When considering quantum theories, this kinematic effect contributes to the spin-orbit coupling.

* I’m really talking about the “restricted Lorentz group”, which doesn’t allow spatial inversion or time reversal - so I mean the connected component of the identity of O(1,3), aka SO^+(1,3).

❝In my past, I was a cruel sorceress of the black arts. It was highly celebrated in my homeland where darkness ruled. Alas, I turned from my wicked ways and repented. Now I have found myself here. Your story of your execution intrigues me. That a kingdom such as Nohr would kill someone for simply being gifted in other worldly abilities. How hypocritical. That Prince Leo practices witchcraft and yet that is allowed. Unfair.❞

Who would have guessed that Inverse would be spending her time speaking to a spirit in an open field? The silver-haired Pegasus Rider was watering her darling stead on the river side when being confronted by a being from the other side. Instead of being alarmed, she actually bothered to speak to it. To Jeanne . When hearing the other’s story, she could not help but feel sympathy, for she was deeply involved with black magic too in her own life story.
