Pause for a moment.

Pause and listen to Reinbert de Leeuw’s illumined recording of Erik Satie’s Ogives.

This music stops everything.  It makes the now fade away.

As you listen, use that moment to ponder the long-term destiny of the earth and the universe in this Wikipedia article: Timeline of the Far Future.

Highlights include:

In 50 thousand years, “Niagara Falls will have eroded away the remaining 32 km to Lake Erie, and ceased to exist.”

In 100 thousand years, “the proper motion of stars across the celestial sphere… renders many of the constellations unrecognizable.”

In less than 1 million years, “the red supergiant star Betelgeuse explodes in a supernova. The explosion is expected to be easily visible in daylight.”

In 50 million years, “Africa’s collision with Eurasia closes the Mediterranean Basin and creates a mountain range similar to the Himalayas.”

After 230 million years, “The orbits of the planets become impossible to predict.” [PS: remember the slow approach of chaos in this planetary motion simulator?]

In 600 million years, “tidal acceleration moves the Moon far enough from Earth that total solar eclipses are no longer possible.”

In 800 million years, “carbon dioxide levels fall to the point at which C4 photosynthesis is no longer possible. Multicellular life dies out.”

In 7.9 billion years, the Sun, now a red giant, reaches “its maximum radius of 256 times the present day value. … During these times, it is possible that Saturn’s moon Titan could achieve surface temperatures necessary to support life.”

In 100 billion years, “the Universe’s expansion causes all galaxies beyond the Milky Way’s Local Group to disappear beyond the cosmic light horizon, removing them from the observable universe.”

In 1 trillion years, “star formation ends in galaxies as galaxies are depleted of the gas clouds they need to form stars. … The universe’s expansion… multiplies the wavelength of the cosmic microwave background by 1029, exceeding the scale of the cosmic light horizon and rendering its evidence of the Big Bang undetectable.”

By 1 quadrillion years from now, “the Sun will have cooled to five degrees above absolute zero.”

In 3×1043 years from now, assuming protons can decay, black holes will be the only objects left in the universe.

What happens after that, when Boltzmann brains start popping into existence and the Poincaré recurrence theorem gives us another big bang (because of math), I leave to you to read.

And don’t forget to take a look at Satie’s beautiful score for the Ogives.

Ogives / Erik Satie

何人かの友人には伝えましたが、敦賀に移り住むことになりました。今は引っ越しに備えてちょこまか準備をしているところです。先週、一週間ほど敦賀に滞在していたのですが、月曜日に兄とユースケくんと山に行ってきました。今回も僕のペースに合わせてくれたので助かりました。ノコノコと4時間ほどかけて下山。全力で満喫。→

本も一冊読みました。サリンジャーの『フラニーとズーイ』。村上春樹さんの訳は読みやすく、スゥッと物語に入っていけました。サリンジャーといえば『ライ麦畑でつかまえて』が有名ですが、ライ麦~に関しては野崎孝さんの訳が好きです。学生のとき、ほとんど本を読まなかった自分が何故かハマって、何度も読み返した憶えがあります。

最近の音楽。HOP KENでEttと川手直人さんを購入(とてもいいお店でした)。あとオークションでエリック・サティを300円で落札。初期のさかなの曲にサティの「オジーヴ」に似た曲があります。タイトルは「コカ」。大好きな曲。

Erik Satie Ogives (Les Anges, Elegie, Sylvie, Les Fleurs)

Voltando a Satie, lembrei-me das “Ogives”. Até há uns poucos anos a única coisa que conhecia de Erik Satie eram as suas Gymnopedies e Gnossiennes. Quando fui a uma das Festas da Música em Belém, optei para conhecer mais e fui assistir a um recital de piano só com peças dele. Entre elas as “Ogives”. Adorei! Como é que ninguém ouve mais isto?

Coming back to Satie, I remembered the “Ogives”. Until a few years ago the only thing I knew from Erik Satie was his Gymnopedies and Gnossiennes. When I went to one of the Music Fest in Belém, I chose to know more and went to a piano recital that covered only Satie’s pieces. Among them were the “Ogives”. I loved it! How come no one hears more of this?

This is the first of four Ogives, by Erik Satie. I’m not really sure what to make of this piece. Satie’s a funny guy. I’m sure most people have heard the Gymnopédies, and these are in the same vein. I only linked to the first one, but I’m sure you can find the other three. These Ogives, along with Satie’s other pieces, find a way of getting inside my head and confusing me. They’re strange. Go listen to this, bitte.

Toulouse : Dans le Tarn, on jette les obus à la déchetterie

INSOLITE - Pour la deuxième fois en un mois, un obus a été retrouvé dans la benne à ferraille d’une petite déchetterie… Le mystère des obus de la déchetterie d'Anglès, petite commune de la montagne tarnaise, s'épaissit. La Dépêche du Midi révèle dans son édition de jeudi que, pour la deuxième fois durant ce mois d'août, un employé du site géré par la Communauté de communes de la montagne du Haut-Languedoc a retrouvé une ogive de facture ancienne dans la benne à métaux. Le premier a été volé La découverte remonte au samedi 22 août. Elle a entraîné la fermeture de la déchetterie durant tout le week-end dans l'attente de l'intervention des démineurs. Un premier obus, différent, avait été récupéré au même endroit le samedi 8 août. Avec un épilogue rocambolesque puisqu'il avait été volé durant le week-end avant même d'être pris en charge par les gendarmes. Alors, est-ce qu'un habitant du coin est tombé sur une mine d'obus au cours de travaux ? Est-ce une coïncidence ? Quoi qu'il en soit Alain Barthès, le maire de cette commune de 500 âmes, appelle à la prudence dans les colonnes du quotidien régional. Qu'on se le dise, jeter un obus à la benne, c'est dangereux. Car rien ne dit que la munition va rester inerte, surtout si elle subit des chocs et manipulations…

Armement d'Ayoub El Khazzani: tout comprendre aux termes techniques du procureur

Mardi, le procureur de Paris François Molins a tenu une conférence de presse concernant l'attaque du Thalys. Comme lors des précédentes affaires terroristes, le magistrat a donné des éléments techniques sur l'armement. Un jargon pas forcément compréhensible du grand public et que L'Express décrypte avec l'aide de Mohamed Douhane, commandant de police et secrétaire national du syndicat policier Synergie-Officiers. Un lexique qui, malheureusement, risque d'être réutilisé dans les années qui viennent. 

“Un pistolet automatique Luger M80 de calibre 9mm Parabellum dont le numéro de série a été limé”

“Une cartouche non-percutée”

“Une cartouche percutée mais complète”

“Une ogive placée dans l'emplacement d'un marteau brise-vitre” ainsi qu'un “étui percuté”
