they will infinitely pass



By a series of discoveries and inventions just perfected, Nikola Tesla, the electrical scientist, has upset what has hitherto been regarded as one of the fixed laws of nature. “Every effect diminishes with distance,” is the way the textbooks have expressed it. Tesla now says that instead of decreasing like other forces, electricity may be made to increase in intensity with the distance traveled.

The full significance of this discovery may not be at once apparent. It is obvious, however, that it annihilates space. There can be no limit to the power of the electric wave which increases in intensity the further it travels.

For nearly 20 years Tesla has been working on his plan, he calls it his wireless “World System.” If it is put into successful execution it will convert the earth into a gigantic conduit, which will pass power for all earthly activities, and make possible communication with other planets.

From time to time Tesla has made partial announcements as his work progressed. This, however, is the first comprehensive account of his system as a whole that the inventor has consented to give to the world.

“Through ages past man has anyways attempted to project in some way or other energy into space. In all his attempts, no matter what agent he employed, he was hampered by the inexorable law of nature which says every effect diminishes with distance, generally as the square of the same, sometimes more rapidly.

“I saw at once that space was annihilated in all the three aspects; in the transport of our bodies and materials and in the earth, transmission of the energies necessary for our existence. You can imagine how profoundly I was affected by this revelation. Technically, it meant that the earth, as a whole, had certain periods of vibrations, and that by by impressing electrical vibrations of the same periods upon it, it could be thrown into oscillations of such nature that innumerable benefits could be derived.

“It is difficult to convey an idea of these inventions without resorting to technical terms. The first and best known of these is my transformer, which enables the production of electrical vibrations of transcending intensities. I have already attained activities of many millions of horse power; but this is nothing compared to those which I am expecting to get with my improved apparatus.

“The second is what I have termed my magnifying transmitter, which I look upon as my best electrical invention, and with which any distance can be bridged. I have already passed of this wonderful instrument and am confident that a message can be flashed to such a distance as the planet Mars.

“Some technical men would be disposed to look upon such statements as those of a dreamer, but it is only because they have not had opportunities to see experiments which I have actually performed. The third invention I have designated as the “Art of individualization,” which enables the transmission of an unlimited number of messages through a wire or wireless, without the slightest interference. Not before this improvement is universally adopted will the world fully realise the benefits of telegraphy and telephony. The fourth invention is my receiver, which concentrates the energy transmitted over a wide area into the operating device.”

What would the voltage in your transmitter be?

“In the transmission of telegraphic and telephonic messages I shall employ from five to ten million volts, but in transmitting power in great quantities, as much as one hundred million volts will be used.“

How will your “World System” compare with those now in use as regards to cost?

“We could easily afford to offer a transmission of telegraphic and telephonic messages to any terrestrial distance for five cents a word. In a short while no one will think it anything out of the way to dictate or to write a long letter across the Pacific.”

How long does it take for the transmission of a message, by your system, around the world?

“The exact time is, according to my measurements, 43-1000 of a second, which is a speed about 50 per cent greater than that of light.

“The impulse starts from my magnifying transmitter with infinite speed, slows first rapidly and then at a lesser rate until, when it has penetrated to a distance of 6000 miles from the transmitter, it proceeds with approximately the speed of light. From there on it accelerates, first slowly and then more rapidly, and reaches the opposite point of the globe again with infinite speed only to rebound and pass through the same phases on its way back to the transmitter.

“This movement of electricity through the Earth, which takes place strictly in accordance with a mathematical law, and enables a great number of accurate measurements and determinations to be made, which are of immense practical and scientific value.”

Is your universal marine service based upon this principle?

“Largely so. In setting up and maintaining stationary waves in the earth its entire surface is subdivided in perfectly definite zones of electric activity, so that any observer of all those data which are of importance to navigators as the latitude and longitude, the position with reference to a given point, the speed of travel, and the course followed. This method is quite exact and reliable, and once introduced will be instrumental in a great saving of time, life and property.”

When your system of time distribution is introduced what kind of devices will be used for indicating the hour?

“They will be ever so much simpler than the ordinary clocks or watches, being entirely devoid of wheel work. For personal use a small case will be provided resembling that of a watch which would indicate precisely the time and require no more attention than a compass for instance. The large clocks on towers and public edifices in general will be replaced by extremely simple devices operated on the same principle.

“All these will be ‘tuned’ to a wireless wave sent out at a certain time. This will automatically set the hands of every ‘tuned’ time piece.”

In operating stock tickers, will the present instruments have to be replaced by others?

“Not at all, they will remain intact. A great financier told me that this should be one of the most valuable and practical applications of my system, inasmuch as the instantaneous operation of such instruments all the world over will go far toward allaying panics and failures which are at present mostly due to the inadequacy and stagnation of channels of information.”

“A business man will be able to dictate in his office a letter which will appear in type at any other place he wishes without loss of time in the transmission. It will be exactly as though he had his stenographer close by. In the same manner it will be practicable to send a handwritten letter or even a check, and what is more important, it will not be possible to falsify the signature.”

Will the transmission of complex musical productions require complicated apparatuses?

Not at all. The apparatus at any of the master plants, transmitting a great number of musical compositions, will be of necessity complicated, but the subscriber will need only a telephone receiver, and, if he desires exclusiveness, and individualizing device in connection, which, however, will be rarely required. He will be none the less able to listen to the most complex opera played in some remote party of the world. What is more, he can carry the entire outfit with him on his walks and travels, and whenever he desires to listen to the music he can do so.

The wireless system which I have developed does not contemplate competition with established lighting systems in densely populated districts, but it offers an ideal solution for the illumination of isolated places. The light will be furnished by exhausted glass tubes, bent in all sorts of ornamental shapes, and is of surpassing beauty, resembling closely the daylight. The lamps will last forever. The entire apparatus for lighting the average country dwelling will contain no moving part whatever, and could be readily carried about in a small valise. It will be quite immaterial in which region of the earth the house to be lighted is located. Distance will not affect the charge.“

How far from the Earth’s surface can power be transmitted by this wireless system?

“To any distance; in fact, the greater the elevation above the ground that easier it is to supply the power to the vehicle, such as an airship crossing the ocean.”

What do you consider the most important application of your system?

The transmission of power, of course. The operation of aerial machines alone will be of a revolutionizing influence, in as much as it will afford a perfect solution of this important problem. Another great field will be the irrigation and fertilization of the soil by wireless power. The time is not distance when a farmer will have installed on his place an apparatus for continuously manufacturing, from the gases of the atmosphere, nitric compounds which will be used to fertilize, while a motor will pump the water and perform other duties; all the energy being supplied from a plant perhaps thousands of miles away. This system can be extended so as to make productive vast tracts of now barren lands located in various countries. I believe that the export of wireless power will be one of the chief resources of the United States and other fortunately situated countries in times to come.“

Here, take my blanket.

Request: Could you do 64 please? I really like your writing!

Summary: You and Tom are best friends, and it’s becoming hard to ignore this strong feeling growing between you two. Neither of you are about to take a chance and ruin your friendship, but as you both sit around a bonfire with your friends, temptation pulls at your chests.

“Don’t lie, we all saw what you did that night!” Tom laughed while pointing to your best friend y/b/f/n.

“In my own defense, I was under the influence.” y/b/f/n defended themselves, bringing their hands up in front of them.

The vibe emitting from the bonfire that surrounded your group of friends was one for the books. You wanted to feel this way everyday, all day. You loved these people and wouldn’t trade them in for the world. The laughter and reminiscing that was being passed around made you all feel infinite, like this moment was going to last forever, and you were honestly hoping it would.

You grinned and glance over to Tom who sat directly beside you, with your shoulders brushing. You tried to look away, but his glowing smile held you captive. A zoo marched around your stomach the longer your eyes rested on him. The shadows from the fire were dancing over his features. Flashing them, then quickly hiding.

He could feel your eyes on him, and tried his hardest to not look over and gander into your y/e/c orbs. Your eyes were his favorite thing about you, he loved getting lost in them. Tom knew that if he looked at you, that he’d look at you as more than a friend, which was something he has to stop. His friendship with you is one he’d walk to ends of the earth for and back again. He wasn’t about to ruin it because of a giddy feeling in his chest that would surely disappear soon. But then again, he’s been saying that for the past couple of months.

CycleGAN feedback loop

Visual experiment by @mario-klingemann resembles a combination of DeepDream and cellular automata, generating abstract patterns with facial features:

Two CycleGAN models trained on face transformations are passing their outputs back and forth creating an infinite loop of ever-changing Turing patterns. 

This is an experiment where 2 CycleGAN models are pitted against each other and transform their reciprocal output images in a feedback loop. The models have originally been trained on transforming faces which is why you see a lot of eyes and noses being generated.

The process is seeded with an initial image but it quickly descends into a semi-stable state that reminds of complex cellular automata or Turing patterns.

“My deepest joy is the freedom of being a ‘spiritual nobody’ (to the public); I do not at the deepest level, mistakenly identify with a particular name, form or personal story (to reinforce a separate sense of self).

I am only here to serve as a divine ‘wake up call’ - You are infinitely greater than all of your passing thoughts, emotions and physical experiences (playing a limited role as a human).

You are the sole creator of your own unique YOU-niverse. There are no victims, no perpetrators, no separate others ‘out there’ to project (transfer) any blame, power, fear, anger or fantasy onto.

You are Infinite Consciousness (God) made manifest.”

the stars, they lie

I got inspired by @crimson-chains ‘s Sun Lord!Viktor and Star Dancer!Yuuri. I was on her stream when she started working on Viktor, and I just wanted to write something (also kinda promised her I will do it) because I thought it was such a cute idea.

Thank you so much to my lovely @flower-crowns-and-skates for butchering beta-ing this before I sent it out into the world.

I stole the title from this song [x]. I hope you will enjoy reading it. You’re welcome to scream at me in my ask box.

The first time he came to Viktor’s corner of cosmos, Yuuri told him about humans. Apparently, he liked them and their planet a lot.

Humans called them stars.

anonymous asked:

Hi! Thanks for blessing my dash each day with Engeki Haikyuu!! goodness! "Winners and Losers" was definitely a lot more emotional, not only onstage with Karasuno's loss, but also that we're watching the last performances of Tatsunari and Shouhei. As a person who attended the last curtain call, can you tell us what went through your mind? Did you have any inkling that we may be saying goodbye to someone? Watching the DVD again knowing of the recast, how differently did you view the curtain call?

Honest to god, my inkling back in May was that we would be saying goodbye to all of them and that any continuing Haikyuu plays would feature an entirely new cast for Karasuno.  That final curtain call and everything about that last show and what the actors put into it just SCREAMED graduation performance.  It felt like the graduation shows I’d seen for other 2.5D plays, and with other sports shows like Tenimyu having a sort of formal graduation system in place, it wouldn’t have been strange, and that was what I expected.  All things considered, it would have been a good time to do something like that.  

But especially with so many of them just tearing up and losing it for the curtain call when they hadn’t previously done that.  I mean, Kouhei’s voice broke a few times, Ken-chan seemed like he was going to burst into tears, Ryoutarou broke into tears completely, and when you have that going across the board, I had thought we were gearing up for a full-cast change.  And with KENTA SAYING SUCH CRYPTIC THINGS!!!  The others might not have been hinting at any changes with their words, but Kenta sure as hell was.  

Watching it again, I paid particular attention to Shouhei and Tatsunari since they are in fact the only ones to leave, and I have noticed some subtle differences.  It now seems like Shouhei almost… rushed through his curtain call message?  He’s never been very lengthy with it in the past, and he still did his traditional call-out to Tanaka beside him, and it’s still very energetic and half in-character, but now I wonder if maybe he was short on words.  He’s quite the veteran stage actor among them, and he’s always been very professional so it can be hard to tell.  But he did later write a blog post with a farewell to Engeki Haikyuu, so we eventually got a little more of his thoughts.  
In contrast, I feel like Tatsunari took more time with this curtain call than he had ever done previously, like he just wanted to stand there and take in the feel of that stage, that sight… just pause and bask in it.  He allllmost broke there right at the end, but he kept it together, and given how he broke down backstage later, I’m honestly impressed.  I believe Tatsunari also wrote things after their graduation was formally announced, but I am not a paying member of his fanclub so I haven’t read what he wrote on his blog.  I’m sure it was very emotional and heartfelt.  

I sometimes wonder what it must be like for them to revisit such feelings after the DVD gets released.  People so rarely have such emotional moments in their lives recorded step-by-step and played back to them (in Blu-Ray quality, even!).  Right now the current cast are so busy touring Summer of Evolution, I don’t think they’d want to revisit that just yet by watching their W&L DVDs.  I wouldn’t, personally, but maybe some have.  I don’t know.  But if and when each of them takes the time to view the DVD like we have, I have to wonder how differently they might feel with the time that’s passed.  More nostalgic?  More sad?  
What I feel is infinitely more gratitude for the work those two have put in and contributed to this series of shows.  


Some feelings YAY!
So I thought, what if the last part of the lyrics meant that your custom character is actually really hurt and passed away while he gave infinite (a.k.a your old friend. Thanks to this theory -Iloveitok-) a last friendly fist bump and infinite notices that his best bud is not anymore with him.
Anyway I hope u people like it!!(even though I missed up and had to use a sticky note lmao)


The unsolved murders of the New Orleans AXEMAN and his letter from HELL

The Axeman of New Orleans is one of the scariest unsolved murder mysteries in history. From the spring of 1918 and the fall of 1919, the serial killer claimed 8 victims, though even more are speculated. 

While The Axeman of New Orleans’ identity is still unknown, it’s no mystery that they were a big fan of jazz music. A popular song was even named “The Axeman’s Jazz”. In fact, in a letter penned by the serial killer, a threat was posed to all New Orleans establishments that were not playing jazz.

Hell, March 13, 1919

Esteemed Mortal:

They have never caught me and they never will. They have never seen me, for I am invisible, even as the ether that surrounds your earth. I am not a human being, but a spirit and a demon from the hottest hell. I am what you Orleanians and your foolish police call the Axeman.

When I see fit, I shall come and claim other victims. I alone know whom they shall be. I shall leave no clue except my bloody axe, besmeared with blood and brains of he whom I have sent below to keep me company.

If you wish you may tell the police to be careful not to rile me. Of course, I am a reasonable spirit. I take no offense at the way they have conducted their investigations in the past. In fact, they have been so utterly stupid as to not only amuse me, but His Satanic Majesty, Francis Josef, etc. But tell them to beware. Let them not try to discover what I am, for it were better that they were never born than to incur the wrath of the Axeman. I don‘t think there is any need of such a warning, for I feel sure the police will always dodge me, as they have in the past. They are wise and know how to keep away from all harm.

Undoubtedly, you Orleanians think of me as a most horrible murderer, which I am, but I could be much worse if I wanted to. If I wished, I could pay a visit to your city every night. At will I could slay thousands of your best citizens, for I am in close relationship with the Angel of Death.

Now, to be exact, at 12:15 (earthly time) on next Tuesday night, I am going to pass over New Orleans. In my infinite mercy, I am going to make a little proposition to you people. Here it is:

I am very fond of jazz music, and I swear by all the devils in the nether regions that every person shall be spared in whose home a jazz band is in full swing at the time I have just mentioned. If everyone has a jazz band going, well, then, so much the better for you people. One thing is certain and that is that some of your people who do not jazz it on Tuesday night (if there be any) will get the axe.

Well, as I am cold and crave the warmth of my native Tartarus, and it is about time I leave your earthly home, I will cease my discourse. Hoping that thou wilt publish this, that it may go well with thee, I have been, am and will be the worst spirit that ever existed either in fact or realm of fancy.
