  1. Thank you for your emails and for inviting me back-- time got away with me, but I'm back.
  2. I don't agree with David Icke in that regard. Because I won't apologize to vodkafan in regard to his being rude, I'm being banned. It was fun! Bye.
  3. I will not be insincere. Nor was I insincere when I wished him a happy new year. I think he and I can be happy ignoring each other. But, as I want nothing to do with Vodkafan, have it your way.

    Happy New Year. As I associate rivers with time, that's the current theme. Gov't Mule - Banks Of The Deep End https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0oBuFUzFcg

    From Rosanne Cash - The River And The Thread (due to be released January, 14th) is the new single “A Feather’s Not A Bird” on soundcloud: Rosanne Cash - A Feather's Not A Bird by bluenoterecords on SoundCloud - Hear the world’s sounds
  6. I defined exactly what I meant. As a matter of fact, I believe only a pervert would want to discuss perverts with a pervert on either Christmas Eve or, now, New Year's Eve-- come to think of it, I would rather do just about anything else any and every day of the year-- let's go back to ignoring each until 2015. Happy New year.

  8. Reptiles have to stay warm. Did you notice the life-sized applique on his sweater? Preppy Snap Croc is bigger than T-rex, the dinosaur... something to do with the radiation that failed to kill him. Since then, he's starred in lots of old Japanese movies.
  9. :eek: Where's the warden?!? :P Ad lib until :mad: someone stops you. For instance, I'll elaborate on your opening paragraph: How about folks who reclaim what was stolen from them? What next comes to my mind is a growing 'underground' that's honored to harbor an influential protagonist/refuge. One could either write such a story or invite improvisation. Have fun while :D you can. :) Happy New Year!
  10. I just wondered. Metrocity is probably pretending, too. Since when is the use of one's own possessions theft?-- who else is to know or even care? Thank you.
  11. The fictional or factual manipulation of space? Please name the author/researcher and cite his book/published research.
  12. Re: the jailing of fraudulent time travelers - I saw such a prison, without bars and gates, on a series about time travel. On what do you base the above quoted opening of this thread?
  13. Re: Emphasis mine. IMHO, I find the most important aspects of Dr. Siegel's definition are: 1) Relational (knowledge) - an important aspect of today's expert system database AI techniques. 2) Process - Also known as a function or set of functions that operates on inputs and produces outputs. 3) Regulation - The primary aspect of control. 4) Energy and Information - I have made many posts on this forum that discuss what I believe to be the relationships between these two metrics. I will not go into them right now, but instead leave this initial post where it is to see where the discussion proceeds. RMT Were it not for a preemptive third party*, I'd have responded a month-and-a-half sooner to RMT: Mind is connected with man’s ability to freely choose between good and evil in moral matters. Therefore, unconscionable is the idea of an unfeeling and, in that respect, senseless AI’s either directly or indirectly deciding anything about man’s fate, e.g. whether or not he works gainfully in order for him to be empowered with means to live conscientiously as much as forward others’ right to do similarly without menace of war machine. Let’s apply that perspective of mind to a second idiom**: have a good mind to do something (informal) if you say you have a good mind to do something, especially to punish someone, you mean that you would like to do it, and might do it, although you probably will not I have a good mind to report you to the headmaster for playing truant. http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/have a good mind The above definition presumes one can have justifiable grounds to mercifully only reprehend someone as opposed to opting to take more severe, punitive, measures. That definition alone would tend to exclude AI from having a good mind to do anything without the free choice of a responsible human being to weigh individual/extenuating circumstance/s and, as a person with feelings, sense the overall gravity of another’s action upon others in order to reach a just decision about it. And, as that is generally only in regard to minor infractions, AI hasn’t the presence of mind to act sagaciously in an emergency or difficult situation. *in wrapping up 2013, I'll let go of bygones. **two idioms of many more that I could come up with for similar comparative-contrast. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
  14. Theme song. Robotics (therein below see, too, the a-v in post 7). That is as much as I'll say about post #30 between now and New Year’s Day. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  16. Re: insurance. I'm surprised RMT didn't point out: The Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare made mandatory health insurance. Re: causality. The difference between causality and destiny is our present empowerment. For example, let's say I was destined to survive a life-threatening accident. When a premonition apparently let me prevent a pile-up on an interstate highway, did the Fates postpone the inevitable?--later, did the angels see that I alone would be injured in order to spare my conscience? That's what :) I like to think.

    RMT et al, Re: Kate Bush - - The "Cloud Seeding" a-v with Donald Sutherland had :cool: cool contraptions. - "Running up that Hill" was beautifully choreographed. - I'm SO glad RMT posted "Wuthering Heights," because apropos to the classic novel is one of my favorite songs. Despite the fact that its lyrics are thus thematically dark, fittingly classic, but fresh, is the overall sound of the track: Altus Silva - Big Blue Ball https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHxCmwa-lQM
  18. RMT et al, Re: 'Thin Blue Line a-v,' it is well to clear misperceptions. Suggestibility is no less nor more. What I likened to emerging from a tunnel might be similar to one's being startled during a state of introspection. It was metaphorical. Also, our experience was understandably startling, though not terribly traumatic. However much or little more I'll be questioned in ways leading or not directed, the gist of what I've stated remains the same. The area was familiar to us, that stretch of the drive was routine and we went from point A to point B in nothing flat-- as in no way did we even have time to not notice our traveling between points A and B. That much anyone can believe or not believe as I've nothing to gain from risk of credibilty.
  19. I'd never heard of the game of snap. 'Preppy' wouldn't lose twice. Happy New Year!

Unfortunately i can not go into depth regarding the exclusion of Woman Time Travelers, But it has to do with the possibility of her being pregnant and traveling to the future or past and giving birth there, which could cause a paradox., alternatively there may be a chance of the Woman Time traveler either traveling back or forward in time and becoming pregnant there. the most I can say is the evolution of man and the chance that the DNA would not be compatible in a future or past time, causing an unstable Time Line or alternative Time Line Michael Janks, Today at 10:18 AM #4 Michael JanksNew Member vodkafan said: ↑ There are female time travellers in my story...the story wouldn't be half as much fun without them. vodkafan said: ↑ There are female time travellers in my story...the story wouldn't be half as much fun without them. vodkafan said: ↑ There are female time travellers in my story...the story wouldn't be half as much fun without them.

    Michael Janks just gave me an excuse to play a rock-a-billy song: Hipbone Slim & The Knee Tremblers - I Hear An Echo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Hnct6OK4vQ The suggestive album cover might be preferable to the above image-- it's a close call.
  22. Darby's username has opposite meanings. Which is more applicable? :confused: Dunno, but beware hoaxers who feign expertise in physics. What you suggest sounds fun, only that he'd probably deny it even to himself.

    So much for my 'backwoods southerner' bit. (Shrug). Concurrent in multiple threads today is a theme conducive to my next selection. Therein the lyrics a young woman in the distant past engages herself, as an an old matron, in dialog via a looking glass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ3q6MNbaXY "Jig of Life" could be combined with the celtic carol above for continuity.
  24. Pardon my consolidating duplicate threads as you last posted, Itheblaze. Re: I do not recollect entirely. Part of my not mentioning our listening to the radio goes beyond the shock of what I witnessed visually at the time. The synchronicity of my husband's and my being mentally elsewhere together with something either said or played on air might have somehow transported us northward, toward where we were consensually bound.
  25. 1) The trigger may or may not be recognized. 2) Abrupt is right. 3) Mine was an awareness of suddenly being elsewhere. 4) Self-awareness as a presence seems apparent. 5) Sound was secondary at the time. 6) Initially, I reflected upon other times when I've witnessed marked differences of light and color-- of great interest to an artist. Then, suddenly, it was as if I had emerged from a tunnel. That is what this discussion of light and sound evoked.
