yall wanna hear something cool and completely unrelated to this blog, okay theres all these different sets of numbers right, and all these sets of numbers are infinite
So the number sets kinda look like this,
a [all the real numbers]
a + bi [the complex numbers which include i the imaginary number which is really just another way of looking at how algebra can function (we can now take the square root of negative numbers), which is a different take on algebra where we simply had the set of real numbers]
and then you get
a + bi + cj + dk [quaternions, which is the next step up from the complex numbers in algebra, and are a new set of numbers that have a new way of looking at algebra, and are also infinite]
So about the complex numbers, thats numbers that include i, the ~imaginary number~ which is a terrible name for it, it’s not imaginary, just a completely different bit of algebra that doesnt work with what was previously thought to be algebraic laws and rules. Because before we had i you couldn’t take the square root of a negative number, because thats just not how the real numbers worked. It changed how algebra functioned with this new set of numbers.
You can just change the set of rules for math for it to work, by creating something new, as long as it all logically follows.
Anyway, once you get past the complex numbers you hit this cool thing called quaternions, which is another set of numbers, except in this set of numbers, which are also infinite, they don’t follow all of the rules of algebra we were previously taught to believe, in this set of numbers we don’t have the commutativity property,
[commutativity property is where a*b = c, and b*a = c]
without this it means if you multiply numbers together together in different orders, you get different answers. Which isn’t how any of the other previous sets of numbers work in algebra.
in regular algebra which works with all those numbers up to the complex numbers: 2*3 = 6, and 3*2 = 6
In quaternions: j*k = i, but k*j = -i
So with quaternions
i^2 = -1
j^2 = -1
k^2 = -1
But you know whats wild about this, in this set of numbers:
i*j*k = -1
And the order does matter in this set of numbers.
because in this set of algebra
i*j = k BUT heres the wild part j*i = -k
we can see it again:
j*k = i, BUT k*j = -i
When you multiply j*k you get i, when you multiply k*j you get -i, which isn’t how any of the other number sets behind this one in algebra work, isn’t that wild?
There’s a part of math where basic definitions of algebra don’t exist for these types of numbers to exist, and the further you keep going into new numbers, the more fundamental rules of algebra you start losing for the number sets to exist.
and this guy just came up with it walking across a bridge
One / Ace: New beginnings, first steps, fresh starts, initiation, conception. Leadership, taking action. Planting the seeds of a project, process, ambition, desire, or plan. Testing the waters. Imagination. Potential. Possibilities.
Two: Duality, partnership, cooperation, sharing, equalizing, balancing. Options, the need to make a choice. Separate paths or directions. Togetherness or a need for it. Attraction. Yin and Yang, the harmony or conflict of opposites.
Three: Scattered or coordinated energies in multiplicity. Communication and connection in groups. Creativity, abundance, growth, progress. Fluidity and velocity of a process, forward movement. Acquisition, collecting, gathering.
Four: The structure, the foundation; the basis for fruition. Nurturance, care, maintenance, caution. Securing current progress. A milestone or significant checkpoint. The seeds begin to sprout. Slow advancement, stillness. Patience.
Five: A sudden change, challenge, conflict, obstacle, or new idea/option that disrupts the present process. Crises, instability, chaos. The need to recreate, reroute, re-evaluate, or regroup. Realization, clarity, a change of mind.
Six: Solving or transcending a problem. Finding a new path or an escape route. Support and harmony. Relief and relaxation following adjustment to a new condition or reality. Acceptance, working with the truth/situation.
Seven: A disruptive halt caused by the need for introspection, intuition, reflection, assessment, and consideration. Deep thought, solitude, inspection of the spirit/subconscious. Cultivating faith, openness, & a new perspective.
Eight: Power & mastery. An excess of energy, a culmination, overflow. Using the knowledge gained to start again; rebirth & claiming what’s been earned. A need to purge what is below to make room for what’s above. Accomplishment.
Nine: Completion, the end, finality. Transition, transcendence, transformation. Wisdom. Overwhelm. Letting go. The peak, the final fruition, the harvest. Resting now that it’s all over – grieving or celebrating the results.
Ten: Coming full circle, starting again. Razing after raising; a state of “too much” and needing to purge, cleanse, flush the remains of the prior process or experience. Opening up to release the old, as well as to take in the new.
To write his new book, Nabokov’s
Favorite Word is Mauve, journalist and statistician Ben Blatt loaded
thousands of classics and contemporary best-sellers into various databases and
let his hard drive churn through them. He wanted to know if our favorite
authors follow conventional writing advice about cliches, adverbs and
exclamation points (they mostly do); if men and women write differently (yep);
if an algorithm can identify a writer from his or her prose style (it can); and
which authors use the shortest first sentences versus those who use the longest.
We can hear thousands of monocles dropping into thousands of
cups of Earl Grey from here. “But what of literature?” you sputter. “What does any of that
technical folderol have to do,” — here you start wiping your monocle on
your nosegay — “with ART?”
