Hurricane balls and tornado ball with air compressor

This is a video of me spinning up hurricane balls with an air compressor. I have gotten them faster (I estimate this run got up to about 10,000rpm) but it is still very cool. The second part of the video is some random thing I made when I was bored. It just spins a marble really fast inside the container. I know it's not very exciting :P haha please comment and rate! hm...the video won't embed so just go here.

And I was having the most fantastic day......

Really I was, I got into work, and had no real tasks to accomplish since my mentor was home sick and his boss was sick. Except she was so sick she asked me to do her job. So I got to spend 9 hours escorting 4 PE's all over to different locations. Climbing on roofs, crawling through mechanical rooms. digging things up, getting wet and dirty, all while trying to maintain a professional appearance.  I loved it!  I can't even express how much I love going to work, being an engineer is awesome. But then I got home to discover a microburst had hit our neighborhood. And was filled with anticipatory dread as I noticed the 65 foot oak in front of my house was no longer visible over the neighbors roof line. Well, the pictures below speak for themselves, there was only one way this thing could fall and NOT hit something, and it fell just that way. And if I hadn't been home late from work, my much loved truck would have been right under the trunk.

Simpliest way to make a 'tornado' effect with water? 12vdc Motor?

I'm looking to create the tornado/twister effect in a plastic glass without human interaction (aka: picking it up and spinning it). I did this before by hacking up an old 10gal aquarium filter and used the motor out of it. It used a magnet which spun a small prop which created the effect I was looking for. That filter motor died out and new 10gal motors are around 20 bucks. Is there an easier way to do this with perhaps a small 12vdc motor? Many any other ways? Suggestions? Thanks!

Mammatus Clouds Observed in Aurora Colorado

A thunderstorm rolled in at about 3:00 p.m. near my house in Aurora Colorado. I was amazed by the clouds that were present, and recognized some of them as "Mammatus Clouds." These clouds are fairly rare, I've only ever seen then twice. They are named "Mammatus Clouds" because they resemble a mammals breast. These clouds were not as distinctly mammatus as the previous ones that I had observed, but they are still mammatus clouds nontheless. I thought that these are really cool, and that someone might enjoy seeing them. Enjoy! 3:00-3:55 6-15-2012 Aurora, Colorado

Today a tornado killed 15 people from my high school

I was driving home from work when I heard on the radio that a tornado had ripped through the high school of Enterprise, Alabama, where I attended, and where my little brother currently attends. A shock went through me as I heard the name of my home town. I'd never heard it on the national news before. When I heard that at least 8 kids at the high school had been killed, I really started worrying. I wanted to call my mom and find out if my little brother was okay. But I don't have a cell phone, and I was stuck in a traffic jam. I felt so trapped, and I was less than a mile from my house. When I finally got home, I couldn't reach my mother on at any of her numbers. I couldn't reach my sister, either. I called my sister-in-law, Michelle, who lives 30 minutes from Enterprise. She was home. Michelle said that my mother had driven to the high school twenty minutes before the tornado hit, and picked up my brother. He was safe. I was still in shock, though. I did the same thing I did after September 11; I watched the news for hours. I called and finally got through to my mom. She told me the police weren't letting anyone near the high school. Then I found out that seven more students died, bringing the total to fifteen. I got mad. It seems crazy to me that the police would keep away people that could help rescue the students. Maybe seven more would be alive if they had just let people go to the high school to help, or let the students with cars drive themselves home. My Mom told me about a family we're friends with. The tornado went right over their house. The mom and five kids all huddled in the hallway as the house shook and the roof was ripped off. They all survived. But the father was at work, and from where he was, he saw the tornado touch down. I can only imagine how helpless he felt as the tornado went towards his house. Enterprise is small, and I'm sure I know some of the families that lost sons and daughters today. I told my wife I'm leaving in the morning to go help clean up. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of work to do tomorrow. I've been so shook up by this all, I have to send my thoughts somewhere. You never think it will happen to you. You never think it.

Triggered arduino bell system, code problem.

I need to pick a random .wav file from a sd card to play when triggered by the master clock. Also, I have to play a tornado warning file when the when the master clock sendes 3 short signals. It might go somthing like this, 'TORNADO WARNING, PROCEED TO SAFE ROOMS' in a computer voice.

HI, any members interested in sailing, also making thier own sailing catamran ie: , A TORNADO CATAMRAN?

Hi I live in a country Bulgaria, I have limited amount of money, I would like to build a catamtan boat, specifically an F18 or a tornado would be great, it needs to be perfect and sea worthy as I intend to sail it every weekend during our summer period. I saw some plans here, does any one have something better or some experience to share, or perhaps you live in Bulgarian town of Varna and would like to help.

Why "Vortex" for Vortex math and devices?

If you are new to the topic then it might give you a slightly quicker understanding than watching hours of youtube videos.I assume you have seen these various coils that make a sphere shaped magnet spin at insane speeds.They are a good start.You see by normal understanding these Rodin or Vortex coils should not be able to produce a field that rotates that fast.As with a lot of things we tried to use math to explain it in theory and than adjusted the math to match it.Vortex math was born.So how do you explain blue and red to a blind person that never saw anything?I mean in a way they actually know how it would look if they could see?Doesn't work, but we can use a Dyson vacuum cleaner ;)A lot of "tornados" add up to one giant super tornado.Spinning so fast that "all" the dirst stays behind and only clean air comes out.As in nature all the weather cells add up to one that is more powerful than the combined single ones.The tornados that form the term vortex are around the coils.But also around the entire donut as well as every single strand of wire.In any good vortex the rotational speed increases towards the center and bottom of the vortex.You can try that with some floating stuff when you drain your bathtub or sink.Try to imagine and endless tornado that runs around every wire like a spiral.The coil itself adds another spin vector to it and increases the moving speed or the single tornado.Combined it adds up to a very strong tornadoe moving very fast around in the coil pack.As this also creates a rotating field like another tornado in the donut shape it all gets twisted up.Physics as we know it won't fully explain these effects.Vortex devices that produce electricity are usually coils in a special winding configuration and pattern.Like we try to eliminate certain things with basket coils in the HF area a Rodin or Vortex coil tries to utlise these otherwise unwanted stray effects and interferences.Overunity is another term people like to use here but I leave it up to you if such a things is phsically possible with an electrical system.Vortex math tries to explain all these things demonstrated in experiments.However I found two slight flaws in the common approch.1. Only two dimension used.Unlike the coils the simplified Vortex math only operates in two dimensions.A circle instead of a sphere if you like.2. Again, unlike the coil harmony and resonance are neglected.It seems in some cases people try to draw a circle just with straight lines.While in reality you have a never ending, resonant "stream" in three or to be precise four dimensions.Is it the chicken and egg problem?Yes and no.You can only calculate something if you can fully understand it or exactly replicate it in reality.Vortex coils are just way to interpret theories and get some sort of results.And those results are the real problem.We can measure magnatic fields in strenght and direction even frequency.However we can neither make them visible in real time not measure mixed or entangled fields properly.We "see" Mars is our "red planet" but in reality it just the atmosphere, the surface is not red at all in most places.NASA has enough problems to calculated missions to outer space with enough accuracy.Just imagine they would have to do it while considering that around every path our planets make is another spinning "distraction"....That is exactly what Vortex math tries to do while eliminating common math bit by bit.You can see and hear in 3 dimensions.Maybe you are also good in drawing something in 3D on your compterscreen or 3D headset.But how many here could predict the path of a baseball in 3D like they do when watching a game?Depending on your viewing angle you might be way off....Try to know or calculate where exactly the ball is at any given monet in time and how fast it spins in which direction.....Our brains are not trained to think like this!Even if we construct things like a dome we prefer to have straight features.Sure manufacturing is one thing that needs to be affordable.But try to just calculate the support structure if all is actually fully round like a sphere should be.We avoid what is considered higher dimensions as much we can.To calculate a distance in 3D it still seems easier to use two 2D models to add up instead of true vectors.Again only through technology like computer we are able to simulate, understand and actually calculate what we need.Where we ventured around the globe and into our solar system our math was left behind.Finding workaround and good enough approximations still seems the way to go.Instead actually evolving our math to our needs we just add more and more complex formulas and calculations.To fully understand vortex math you need to let go and start thinking in 4 dimensions instead of just 2.Oh, sorry, you might be new to this...Number 4 is time of course.

Custom Glow Table: need ideas!

Hello everybody! First of all i'd just like to say I just made an account but have been using this site for years and love you guys =] I have this idea for a tv stand / table and I am stuck. attached is a drawing of my table (tried my best). The idea is a table made out of a recycled door as the table top, clear 6'' diameter and 2' long tubes as the legs, a liquid that reacts to blacklight inside the legs of the table such as laundry soap to fill the inside of the legs, and one small waterproof fan in each of the front legs to create a vortex inside the tube. So essentially I want a table with legs made of clear tubes with a glowing tornado in each front leg and a black light mounted under the table to light em' up! I need help figuring out what would be the best / cheapest material to use to create the front legs. Also what type of fan to use that is waterproof and will have enough torque to turn the water. Any help is appreciated!!

Brainstorm: What are good sustainable/modular prefab home materials/designs?

I'm far too young to implement these things at the moment, but I'm interested in your thoughts on a pre-fab home designs and materials. Hopefully something I can make/repair myself. I live in Texas (Dallas currently, perhaps Austin later, climate: mostly dry country with tornadoes.) My idea was to build a pre-fab  workshop/garage and build the house inside of that. Does anyone know of pre-fab underground homes? That would help maximize my land usage. I read an archived article on motherearth news about "Solartron" which sounded perfect, but they seem defunct now.  http://www.motherearthnews.com/Green-Homes/1979-05-01/The-Solartron-Prefabricated-Earth-Sheltered-Home.aspx?page=4 The key areas I would focus on are the garage (mainly automotive), kitchen (small, but professionally inspired), and garden. I'm hoping to have a garden-system with a few miniature goats for milk production later in life and small-scale food production like my grandfather. (Spices, vegetables, fruits) I'm wondering on any thoughts of what you would like in your dream home?

Using two 12V batteries in series with both a 12V and 24V output

I have a tornado shelterthat I have wired for both 120V AC and 12V DC. All of the lighting is via 12V DC while the AC is used for recharging the batteries and running a 1500 VA UPS system that powers a small TV and radio. The UPS system normally uses two small 12V SLA batteries in series. To increase the run time of the UPS I want to use auto batteries instead of the small SLA batteries normally used. In order to cut down on the cost of batteries I want to use two auto batteries, one 100AH battery used for the main lighting and a 50AH battery in series with the 100AH battery to provide the 24 volts for the UPS system. The UPS system will only use the two batteries when the AC is out which is normally rare. Do you see any problems with this setup providing I install a diode in the UPS battery feed to prevent the UPS from recharging the batteries and use separate smart chargers connected to each individual battery? I feel I have overlooked something but I can't seem to put my finger on it.

Question about something in the Elegant Universe book I am reading...(KelseyMH?)

Ok, here it goes:   In the description concerning general relativity, the following scenario is depicted:  Jim and Slim are riding a "Tornado" ride (goes by different names, but essentially is a centrifuge that pins you against the outer wall and then drops the floor out from under you. Sometimes calle d PUKE machine). Anyways, looking at the ride from a bird's eye view, one measures the circumference and the radius and we find that the ratio is two times PI or about 6.28.  Now that is from OUR perspective, but from Slim's and Jim's measuring the circumference (so says the book) will give a different answer since they are traveling at high speed (assuming the speed is fast enough to invoke the Lorentz contraction).  Thus, he says in the book that his measurement will come up short and therefore not be the same ratio noted.  I don't doubt this, but I have a problem with not taking into account the lengthing of the circumference because of IT'S motion forward.   Am I missing something?   Why wouldn't the same effect  be proportional to the lengthening of the ruler used to measure the circumference, seeing they are traveling at the same speed?   Am I taking his example TOO FAR (in other words, he is assuming the ride is there but not physical)?   Maybe I over analyze?  :-)

Freezer panel home build

Some time ago I was approached by an old friend who got very lucky money wise.He wanted to build a really energy efficient house for himself - in terms of being well insulated.Should be easy to build as well he said...So with a few beer we got together one day and tried to figure out what options are available that the usual building companies won't or can't offer.Quite soo we realised that freezer panels seem to be the ideal solution.Sturdy, ralatively high load rating and additional supports, mounts and all are readily available.Funny enough there are even the right thicknesses available to be a perfect match for EU style tripple glazed windows and well insulated outside doors.And as always the initial euphoria meant we totally went over board here.Getting dimensions for selected doors and windows, calculating how many freezer panels are required to make the outside walls and roof...Even starting on 3D models to design the whole thing.Needless to say the dreams ended with an equiry at the council for a building permit for the dream home.Turns out that despite proper ratings on overthing a house can not be built with freezer panels for walls.Only bricks, wooden/steel frames and approved building materials...Either way we kept going as a theoretical game for the hope in a few years regulations around here might change.And you might be lucky to have your property somewhere with no such stupid regulations.One of the biggest problems we realised such a well insulated home would have is moisture and fresh air.Possible solution here is to use a heat exchange system for basically everything inside and outside the house.Options for this already exist for purchase and installation so nothing would need to be designed or developed from scratch.These system combine airconditioner, heating, hot water and air exchange in a quite compact unit size.The required ducting is a different problem though that should be included in the early design stages already.Solar panels double up as additional heat shields so to say and with enough roof space left it could be turned into a green and living roof to help with the carbon footprint and inside temperatures during the summer.So far for the easy part...All this would be impossible without home automation and integration.Sensors monitor conditions, a computer system decides on the right operating parameters and allows for user adjustments.Home automation isn't a new thing either, so called smart-homes are already in the portfolio of most good builder out there - at a price though.Using this technology to our advantage means the smart part now doubles up for the required input and sensor data.For a smaller home you would ideall opt for a rotating home that follows the sun...For a really big home you would aim for enough solar and wind power to make it self sustaining...Battery technology is on our side here and using Li-Ion tech is almost affordable as old style lead-acid batteries for this purpose.So why are there only so few people going this route?Would be very easy to create freezer panel styles that look like wood or bricks to be conform with local appearence...The real problem seems to be that it violates what we are used to.For starters it would be hard to explain why you should live in a big fridge with windows.The next problem is that such homes would be very easy and quick to build.You select your style and design features, pay for it and production starts.In time for the finnished foundations, plumbing and such the parts arrive and come together in a day or two.Connections are finalised and can move in within a week of commencing to build the actual house.Thausands of tradies would be jobless if this would be the general way to build new homes.Same for all those companies that currently supply the standard building materials, frames, roof tiles and such...Just imagine a tornado just turned your home into dust.Wouldn't it be great to be able to move into a new one within a few weeks instead of months?Even better if the new one would still be mostly unharmed after the next tornado....Living in a possible flood zone?Nothing easier than to add some barriers for doors if the house is fully sealed otherwise...Stay dry while the water is right under your window, just don't open the door...In other parts of the world so called kit-homes are already widely available but mostly only in mild climates.The benefit of using freezer style panel for homes in desert or cold climates seems to obvious though.Same for possible disaster zones like tornado alley.Is it time to re-think how we define a home?

First image uploaded to web - subjects of photo splitting up (don't tell Kelseymh!)

From the BBC: An all-female doo-wop band whose image is believed to have been the first photo uploaded to the fledgling world wide web is to play its final gig. Les Horribles Cernettes take their swansong at the Hardronic Festival at the Cern laboratory in Geneva - the birthplace of the web. A picture of the women was uploaded to the web on 18 July, 1992, by web creator - and fan - Tim Berners-Lee. He wanted it to test out the version of the web he was working on at Cern. Press tornado The band was founded in 1990 by Michele de Gennaro who worked at Cern as a graphic designer. The Cernettes get their name from the initials of the giant particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider, used at Cern to investigate fundamental physics. The group has won fame in scientific circles by performing at Cern social gatherings and physics conferences. The women sing classic 60s pop songs, as well as their own compositions such as Microwave Love, Collider and My Sweetheart is a Nobel Prize. The gig on 21 July at the annual Cern music festival will be their first performance for five years - and is billed as their last. Jim Halley, manager of the band, said there had been a huge upsurge of interest in the band because of the anniversary of the image being uploaded to the web. The band was even featured on the US talkshow hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, said Mr Halley. "This photo was one of those that changed the web, from a platform for physics documentation, to a media for our lives," [the band] said. Les Horribles Cernettes.

Switch To Battery Power When Mains Power Is Lost ?

Go-to-War Gear--such catchy hypothetical stuff writes well, but it can turn real all too fast. I have acquaintances in Houston who had less than an hour to leave their homes before the floodwaters overtook them. They had just enough time to throw their important papers into the dishwasher (a handy dry spot for important stuff in a flood), grab their kids, and head for high ground. The recent CaliforniaThe Hunting Shack offers both .45 Colt and .45 Schofield loads (left). Ramshorn gripped STI Texican and Texas Longhorn Arms No. 5 were used for testing both the .45 Colt and the shorter .45 Schofield ammunition. wildfires typically covered 100 meters in 3 seconds. Do you really have what you need to grab and go? Even in America, you can go from full stop to life-threatening crisis in moments.A Proper Foundation: You can measure a man by his boots. I burned through several sets during my time in uniform. My favorite pair of combat boots is more comfortable than house slippers. Combat-proven features make them rugged. Speed laces keep them fast.I wear boots every time I fly. The speed laces let me get into and out of them easily for the obligatory TSA assessment. Keeping the best insoles for standing all day maintained and the drainage vents clear ensure they're comfortable.Air travel is not as much fun as it was once, but an airplane cabin is comfortable enough. Now imagine that same space upside down, dark, and populated with jagged metal, screaming hysterical passengers, fire, and worse. Never remove your footwear in an airplane.Whether the threat is a wildfire, hurricane, tornado, or civil unrest, you will always need proper footwear. Keep your favorite pair of broken-in boots right next to your bugout bag. Think it through and have something similar for each member of your family. Anything built on a faulty foundation can ultimately fail. If you have to move in a hurry that foundation is a good pair of boots.A Proper Bag: A Bugout Bag is pretty stupid without a decent bag. I have a nice utility pack I picked up at our local Walmart for next to nothing. It is lightweight and serviceable enough. However, mygo-to-warbag is a Brazos concealed carry pack from Flying Circle Gear. It's the best I've ever seen.For starters, everything about the Brazos bag is just a little bit heavier than everybody else's. The stitching is more rugged, the material is more substantial, and the zippers are of the big beefy sort. Additionally, the bag is exceptionally well imagined.There are two spacious center compartments large enough to manage a laptop. A small top pocket packs your wallet and incidentals and includes a hidden ID card holder. There is an integral hydration pouch along with four zippered pouches on the sides and a larger version on the front.The outside of the bag is festooned with MOLLE webbing. Thread a pair of ammo pouches in place for your shades or spare reading glasses. They can even carry ammo in a pinch. I can and have lived out of mine for extended periods while travelling, camping, or hiking.The handiest feature on my Brazos bag is the hidden "pass-through" pocket on the back. This discreet compartment is zipper-accessible from either side and is the perfect size to manage a decent gun. Open both sides and you can slide the pack over the handle of a rolling suitcase. Drop in a soft body armor panel and wear the pack backwards and you have an improvised tactical vest.

Ancient technologies revisted - the last chapter, 13

We often woder how the ancient builder were able to calculate all the stuff they needed.But there might be a very simple explanation: Evolution and the gregorian calendar...Our modern math is based on 10 or for most things US still the 12.And no matter which system you try to calculate things like gravity, accelleration or just angles you always end with a big mess.So what did the church to make it all so complicated, after all it was a change of calendar....Not quite....Before times we knew 13 star signs.Before the church came along most people used the 28 day moon cycle or derivations of it.What was once left to high priests or the village shamane turned into Astrology and also forgot about the 13, reducing the star signs by one.Big deal you say, no one cares....Or do we?What were the real world implications of this interference?Or year is now 364.25 days long - on average.We constantly need to adjust it by one day every four years and also need to correct our time accordingly.What a hassle....We also implemented that a day has to have 12 hours or 24 for the entire thing, including the night.Only to finally use the base 10 for our common math LOLIt does not get any more complicated than this :(As a result of this mixing our circle ended with 360° and a minute with 60 seconds - What the heck!?There is no common base to develop any proper, higher math!So we learned to work around the problem and to accept the most complicated way must be the best way.An artifical brake for our evolution.Nonsense? Let's play it out just a little bit:We do it the old ways and use the lunar cycle with 28 days.Gives us 364 days per year, every year.What about our star signs?Funny you should ask....Because suddenly we have a perfect fit for the 13 star signs again.We still ignore that they are not all visible for the same period of time in the zodiac though.What about the days and time?If we ignore the 12 and use 28 hours for a full day instead of just 24 we are again in the right rythm.But where is the natural logic in all this?Hidden, like our evolution ;)The key is again a thing called decimal parity, a magicians trick if you like.With that long number tunr into just a single digit by adding the singles:345= 3+4+5=12 = 1+2=3If we use the same magic on how our cells multiply:1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 we not only suddely see number we know from our computers.The cell multiplication goes on and on, however: Decimal parity give a simple and repeating sequence:1, 2, 4, 8, 5, 7Notice how everything that makes a 12 like 3,6,9 are "missing"? ;)For a 28 hour day we can divide it evenly to get 14 hours for day and night.7 is a quarter of a day.And yes, 1+4=5 and 2+8=10 = 1+0=1If you now checked some of my really old topics and remember Tesla's circle of math then it is no coincidence that it matches.Go one step further and apply the 364 or a multiple of 28 on a circle as degrees for a full one....If we can link the moon, or to be precise, the lunar cycle so perfectly to how how our cells divide: can the moon really be just a coincidence? ;)Go ahead and play with some of our favourite physics formulas based on the lunar cycle!Don't bother bother trying to figure out how to match the required second to lunar times though.Reverse engineer the formula so to say!We might have solved the time and calendar problem but not the meter ;)Take Gravity for starters.If we assume the moon is no coincidence then gravity shouldn't be one either!?Ignoring all resistance an object near earth surface will increase speed by about 9.8m per second every second.Transfer that to hours and see what happens if you hour is based on 28 or 364.Makes very weird numbers I know.Try again but this time keep in mind that if you change the time base you need the same multiplicator for the 9.81 ;)Ok, now you should have basically matching results and still the basically same complicated number.Re-arrange you formula so you get just 1m instead of 9.81.We could calculate before with our old math how far an object would travel in free fall with our gravity in a given amount of time.Never a nice number per second.Try again with you moon second of hour now ;)If you struggle with it a bit I won't blame you at all.Feel free to use any of the other vital physics formulas we know that require meters and seconds to find out how long a real meter should be ;)Or do it the other way around and use the speed of light formula and see what you get with moon based numbers ;)Why was the 13 banned and declared bad?Ignorance, protection, secracy, god complexes, call it what you like.Either way it is the link between real math and nature in every way.Our year is based on it the same way as our lunar cycle.Our cell multiplication and basically every natural shape in nature uses the 13 as well.Even astrology should again include it.Banning the 13 and using the 12 or 10 instead meant we were unable to see the links nature and the universe offer freely.Is it really just coincidence that a water vortex of tornado look exactly like our milky way?Just that the later is more flat....Or that so many patterns in nature follow the sequence of decimal parity - even your sunflower ....Some say banning "false" gods wasn't enough, others say it was a simple insurance policy.But with the 13 gone the way was free to let anyone trying run into dead ends.Without the 28 day lunar cycle seeing the connection was next to impossible.Ok, but how does the 12 come into play with the church and all?Making math totally impossible was not possible because our brains constantly evolve.The 12 was a perfect fit for the old days.It stands for the "missing" 3 6 and 9 from the decimal parity sequence.It is simpler in one way but only for the most basic things.Once you need what we call today higher math the 12 makes things really hard - hence our never ending numbers when we try to calculate "round" stuff....You just never get the full accuracy because it is always an endless amount of digits behing the dezimal point.Even for Pie....Defining the meter or foot on something totally not natural only helped the cause.After the apple finally hit us on the head it was already too late.Our understanding of what time is was flawed, our meter was a makeshift approximation.Of course the results of calculations only got worse and worse the more we learned about physics.Now we can't even think in any other ways anymore....What about our DNA?We struggle to understand it, make sense of all the unrequired data in it.We often like to say the junk is the leftovers from evolution.But what if our failure to understand and decode our own DNA is intentional?What might happen if someone appraoches this problem with the numbers 13 and 28 as the base of operations?Just some extra magic to make a point: ;)Take 28 days for a "Month".Take 13 "Months" for a whole year.Makes 364 days.Using decimal parity we get:2+8=10 =11+3=43+6+4= 13!! 1+3=4Considering Tesla you still think the lunar cycle is coincidence and won't matter? ;)13 was and always will be the key....Don't believe me?Use 13 and keep adding 13, then use decimal parity to get a sequence.Like 1+3=42+6= 83+9==3.....You get this sequence:4 8 3 7 2 6 1 5 9 Draw it in a circle like Tesla used ;)9 at the top then 1 to 8 every 40 degrees.You get a 9 pointed star.With so many links freely available you just have to wonder how we could ignore it for so long.....The lunar cycle is a complete sequence, no end, no beginning.We now got two distinct sequences, one for the 13 or our moon and the other for our own cell multiplication.1,2,4,8,7,5If you figure out what Tesla did so many years ago and find where the 3, 6 and 9 link those two sequences you will be a winner.I'll give you a hint: They nicely divide our lunar sequence.And our parity line from the cell multiplication does the same.What more do you need to accept that the base for true math is not 10, 12 or even 16?It is 9, always was, always will be ;)Live long and prosper! ;)

Ancient technologies revisited - being one with nature

Talking about aliens, gods, higher beings and such is almost unavoidable when it come to examples of technology from a time when did not even have the brains to think in the regions required.But we need to find some substitute for the word god and gods.The ancient text provide us with "people from the sky" or "people from the stars".With our modern brains and understanding of advanced technologies we have to think about astronauts and visitors from other planets.It is just the way our brains are wired now.Ancient technology however also includes the most basic technologies and techniques that we either don't know or that got lost through time.I would like to give some examples that show that with a bit of research outside "aliens" people can come up with amasing discoveries.You can find ancient stone walls that look like their individual blocks were cut with a gigantic laser scalpel and then finished with a nice soft rounding.And those "bumps" found on only some of these blocks are said by our archeologists to have been used to place them - but of course they can't provide and answer how they were placed.Experts in their fields analysed the rock and found no evidence of the heat a laser would create.Although they did not consider fempto second lasers...And they also discarded the theory the ancient people used some big bags and "cement" that turned into rock - it is natural rock...However they found several and quick quick ways to dissolve and soften the rock.All with "ingredients" naturally occuring in the area.Like an acedic mud mix that would dissolve the calcium in the rock and even some more aggressive solutions working much quicker.Tests performed indicate it would only take about two weeks to make blocks covered in this slurry to move together with an airtight fit.Once in contact there is no slurry left on the surface and once the fit and surface fiish is satisfactory you just wash the remains off with water...A lot of ancient ruins or even the pyramids show extreme accuracy.Archeologists came with up with a lot of horse manure but never with anything explaining how the ancient builder were able to plan these structures.After all you can just made a crude drawing and get in some case millimeter precision.Especially measuring the height of a big structure was said to be impossible for these simple folks, so they must have had gods or aliens to guide them.Maybe they really provided some home schooling but in reality the task is not that hard.Imagine you would the big pyrmids in Aegypt.You would be god like and only the pharao would be above you.No wonder then that you knew once finished you would find your final resting place inside...Being the smart kid you are you of course properly marked where the center would be and in which direction the sides would face....And you would not just "know" that, you would have a detailed plan to construct it and the required more or less permanent markers on the ground.Like in todays times you would start with the right foundations.So, no matter what you would always have very accurate refence points on the ground through the build process.Means you can quite easy measure the distance from any given point on the ground to where the center of your foundations would be.If you then place someone on the top and center of your current progress you can also measure the distance to that point with the same accuracy.Wives you triangle with a 90° angle....I know you know say I would still need a half decent calculator to use thelengths and angle to come with the height - but do I?a² + b² = c² Sounds familiar from your ancient days in school? ;)You have c and one of the other two, so for example c² - b² would give you a²And my grandfather told me stories about his apprenticship where he used tables ans slide rulers to do math like this.So why wouldn't these ancient builders know these things that are just based on properly understand a circle? ;)Advanced machining skills....Many example on how people in ancient times might have cut through several meters granite exist.Be it ropes with a sand slurry or using discardable wooden slates with heavy weights on them with such a slurry.But when it comes to drilling long and perfect holes the best thing people seem to come up with is again aliens and their advanced tech.You could drill through granite by other means though and still get really nice drill marks....For example by acoustic vibration - a thing te ancient aegypts were good at.Some people liked to demonstrate how acoustic frequency can do impossible things.The measured the resonant frequency of a granit block.In a way that they could create node where the hole was supposed to start.Means you experiment with the transducer until you get a max response at the desired location.Like magic a copper pipe with a supporting slurry and slow rotation started to "drill" into the block.At some point and due to the change of shape and loss of material the node was no longer strong enough for the effect and the frequency had to be adjusted, then the pipe kept drilling a bit further.The resulting marks on the walls of that hole almost perfectly matched the marks of ancient holes, including those on the leftover core bits.If you now say the ancient eagypts had no means to create powerful enough transducer then please check the collecting of oversized "tuning forks" several of our museums have.Some even with strings still attached between the two short ends, some models where several forks are tied together with these very strong cords.Strong after hundreds of years...Many were tested and all had very specific and accurace frequencies with the long end of the pitch fork being at the perfect length for a mac amplitude.Check how ultrasonic horn work for inducers ;)I could continue with many more examples but I think you got the idea here.Not everything we can't explain has to be alien of some highly advanced technology, often it is so dead simple that we just would never consider to look in this direction.A trout appears to be able to be basically motionless in a very fast flowing river.You can see they are able to "rest" as well as their breathing is very slow - no signs of movement, no energy use, how do they do this?A trout does not swim through the water, the water pulls it.Only if the water is not moving or is not moving right towards the trout it has to swim.Clearly indicated when you check show fast they have move to swim down the fast river.They should be able to just float down and only move to keep their heading....In reality however the water constantly tries to turn them around - like this nice directional arrow on your weather station on the roof...A resting fish in a river will always directly face the current and you will never really see them seeking a calm region behind some big rock or such.Put a trout in a tank with no current you will have a hard time seeing it standing still in it....Vortexes, harmonics and geometry are nature.Nature does not like straight lines or shortcuts and certainly has no clue about higher math.Still it is only higher math and computer simulations that allow us to understand a lot of things nature does by design.Maybe our ancient cousins did not get any technological help at all from higher beings.Maybe they were just shown how to use nature and the energies it provides.We are bound to science and math.With that we try to explore and understand things we can only theorise about.If in doubt with particle accelerators....Is there a difference to what we call science and math today to what was the purpose or religion only a few hundred years ago?We try to explain and utilise things for integration that we actually have no real clue about ;)What if the approach is the wrong one?Try to calculat how the next layer of a shell from a snail would look like, how thick it needs to be.You evening would be filled while the snail does not even have enough brain cells to comprehend your problem with it.If math would be based on a true and unbisaed observation of nature and the universe we would have the universal language the bible states we once had ....Our math has fundamental flaws otherwise we would have no problem at all to calculate the vortex structure and behavior of a tornado or water vortex.And of course we would not need a claculator to get from the radius of a circle to its circumfence - we would know as naturally as we know know that 2 times 3 equals 6.It will be subject of another part of this series ;)

Ancient technologies revisited - Ley Lines and Magic

Ley lines are a pure mythical thing, they do not exist, they do nothing.That is what science tells us....Myths and legends however always have a tiny bit of truth and honesty in them...No wonder then that we have detailed maps of these Ley Lines available, even your favourite search engine can find then for you.Many cities were build not just along these lines but directly onlo crossings or NODES of this invisble and non-existing grid.Quite an awful lot of them have names that got translated into more modern languages but never actually changed their original meaning.In almost all cases a reference to the stars or one particualr one or some constallation.Science and mainstream history says it is coincidence....No matter where you look in ancient texts the powerful cities were always located on the most powerful parts of the Ley Line grid.And funny enough it only took us a few hundred years to come with enough science to actually confirm that these lines actually DO EXIST.But finally admitting they are real because we can measure something is slightly different in these locations does not help to bring magic back into our world.Or did the magic actually never really leave?We hear about wonders that are impossible, like people being healed from all sorts of uncurable stuff by visiting certain places that are claimed to have healing powers.Is it really a surprise that almost all of the known places we have access to are located on a Ley Line node?The modern human can't except magic.In ancient times religion took care of magic, sometimes with brute force.Later science made sure that magic is forgotten and turned into just a myth.Now the base of magic is suddenly included in science, so the only logical conclusion must be that magic is back!But where is it?If I use a fancy looking "stick" to point at a truck and make it float through the air it would not a big deal."Oh look, what a great magician he is!" and the crowd applause pleases me...They wouldn't care how the trick worked, they just know it was some sort of trickery.And if the trick indeed would be real then some scientist would jump in to for an autopsy of my body and whatever I had with me....But if I would have done something similar 30.000 years ago I would have been declared a god....Humans always seek to find an explanation for things we fail to understand.And the more we study ancient texts with our modern eyes wide open we more similarities we find.The first archeologists to see and study Maya relics had no clue about planes, so obviously they interpreted models of them as something entirely different.This and many other misconceptions were carried on throughout time till today.Those who dare to look again and question what we "know" about ancient cultures for so long are silenced....Most end up to be labeled "Alien believer"...And we still fail to accept aliens or visitors from our own future into mainstream science...If Ley Lines exist it confirms that they must provide access to some sort of energy we no longer remember how to use.Ancient texts often speak about things we would today call a vortex.Be it as a doorway, something that does incredible things or just divides the red sea...Although totally out of magic science explored in theory how energy from a higher plane or continuum would manifest for us if they enter what we can see and experience.The conclusion is that it had to be in spiral or to be precise in all three dimensions vortex like style.It is partly based on facts we can already clearly obersver when one type of energy creates different one.Like a hurricane created by the difference in air temperatures becomes self suffient and stronger although the available energy to power it appears to be way too small....And of course our modern, linear math won't allow us to fully calculate what is really happening in a tornado...A technological gimmick to access the power of the ley lines might be just something tiny, like a resonator...We can't hear our favourite radio station if our tuner does not resonate at the same frequency...Our wireless chargin won't work at all if the sending and receiving coils are not properly matched to operate at common frequencies...The available energy would not only be basically limitless but also clean with no pollution, no waste products....So why we did we forget how to use ley lines?It was religion...They exist, they have powers and energies we have yet to understand.But do we at least have any theories were their power comes from?It can't be the stars as the ley lines are fixed structures, they do not move with the starts their nodes often represent.It can't be the ground or natural formations around either as there is nothing we can detect to be different.But we could try to accept a totally different theory about the center of our earth.Science tells us we a hard crust, then some molten rock and finally a liquid metal core that is somehow spinning and creating our magnetic field....Great story but sadly based on just linear math and our current theories of things we can't actually reach to explore.Funyy then how the greed of humatiy comes to the rescue...Diamonds are expnsive, especially those rare, pure and special ones.Several mines getting diamonds from very deep down in our mantle found strange things in some diamonds.Water....Ok, not water as we know it but the same building blocks.It was only confirmed to be water because when these "impurites" were analysed science already created this type of water.Part of a great science project theroy turned reality.With enough heat and pressure water changes the state of matter, it becomes ice.To be precise ICE7.It is a bit like a very energy plasma constantly being recycled.And it has magnetic properties in its crystalline structure but also on a sub atomic level in its plasma form.How would such a reaction be possible?Gravity of course.If you have water without gravity afeecting it you get a perfect sphere.With enough water your "drop" creates its own gravit by its mass.Add more and more more water and gravity will compress what is at the center.Keep adding and you create a minature sun running a cold fusion process with just hydrogen and oxygen.The natural forces of your movement around the sun and what is manipulated by the moons gavitational impact keeps the up the required motion for the fusion process.Ice7 could not exist in molten lava core with a spinning metal ball at the center.But molten lava under our tectonic plates and their movement is not problem at all if their mass is nothing but "floating debris" covering a huge cold fusion reactor.Compression by gravity and a "water" core create enough friction to melt rocks.We use the same priciple in friction welding in our industry...Unce the firction is great enough the to be welded metals melt and theep meltig until the rotation suddenly stops and all goes solid again as one single piece.The ley lines might be nothing more then emissions from our cold fusion reactor, like directed radio waves if you like to make it too simple.But ley lines are on the ground so the entire therory of Ice7 and cold fusion is just crap!?Science does not give up that easy and confirmed they are actually extending all the way into space.Satellites were able to measure the tiny variations when crossing ley lines and especially nodes where multiple lines intersect.The race to find what might be required to access the "magical" powers of our ley lines started ages ago.The only thing that has changed is the approach and who organises this search.One conclusion that was made again and again is that we will only be able to understand ancient technology once we understand what role the ley lines really play in what myths calls magic.To get a grasp how simple yet complex this understanding is we can go to the great pyramid in Aegypt.Build on a stron Leyline node and confirmed to be oriented by certain stars.You can look all the details about this up on your favourite search engine.Quite intersting once you realise the great precision and drive to aligne everything so perfectly.Even more when you realise the pyramid is also orientated properly on the ley lines.There are only a very few places on our planet that allow for the alignemnt of both stars and ley lines - they all have pyramids there with remarkably similar features or constructions to creat calendars and time keeping based on the movement of the sun and various planets.Some of these old cultrues even tracked the axial shift of our planet to have a warning system for a reversal of our magnetic field...But the great pyramid of Giza has nothing to actually track stars...Then why are all the "tunnels" to the "burial chambers" pointing prescisely at certain starts, including one in the Orion belt that even a decent telescope struggles to make visible?The same stars mentioned again and again throughout all ancient cultures....Some say the pyramids have powers, others say they were gigantic power plants, some they they were devices to accurately track the stars and to make sure whoever has the final resting place there will be able to reach and see his home planet.What if all of this has a true backgorund we yet fail to understand and explore?A now quite famous couple observing vulcanic activity around the globe managed to get quite precise prediction on not just when and where a vulcano is at risk to blow but also how severe the eruption might be.How is such an impossible "magical" prediction possible you ask?No magic, just pure science.The gravitational pull on our planet is not just affected by the moon, it just our biggest influencer in the game.Every planet out there in our soloar system creates gravity.And they all move around "randomly".If the aligned however things change dramatically.In the worst case all our planets between earth and sun are in one perfect line whle the rest of them is in a prefect line on the opposite side of the sun - the gravitational pull on planet earth is at max.Of course it is at the lowest when the inner planets are behind the sun and the outer planets behind earth.Thes seintists track this movement to predict in conjunction with the position of earth if a vulcanic active region would be subject to increased gravitational pull.Theory is it would cause and increase in magma pressure and movement.And the theory shows to be correct time and time again.Now try to imagine this:All the stars that have perfectly aligned channels in the great pyramid align with these tunnels AND all our solar planets align just right as well.If science is correct then around the time the pyramids were build this alignment was true.Get your calculator to check when the same conditions happen again and you might get a big surprise when realising the day is not that far away...Only too bad that we neither have the outer lining of the pyramid nor what was really inside these chambers at the time they were finished.Keep in mind that in most cases the pharao died long AFTER the pyramid for him was finished.We could wonder the same about many old cities in the UK, Europe and especiall Italy.No one denies that Rome was build in just seven days ;) or that it is build on a very secific point on the ley lines.Only few though know that the perfect spot on the lay lines is occocied by the center of the Vatican.Don't know about you....But if the pyramids are said to have had great powers when the time was right then what powers might the Vatican reveal when its alignment to its stars are perfect?Go ahead, start from england and follow the ley line all the way to rome.Take the names of some of the vital cities along the line and make the reference to the star or constellation they were named after.Like for the pyramid, these "bread crumbs" will tell you when the time for Rome is perfect.See what great historical events happen during past alignments and wonder what might happen during the next ;)And suddenly we get the feeling that magic is nothing but a boost of knowledge and technology handed to select few people.Only the most prestigious and "decorated" members of the church are allowed to access the secrect libraries of the Vatican.Even fewer are allowed to actually study them....And all of these few are "fluent" in many ancient languages.....So if GOD would ever return it would be in Rome and there would be people able to at least understand his written language and speak a few works in the old tongue.Imagine though another "god" would visit earlier in a religious location that aligns earlier?The race to be the first is already on whether we like to admit it or not.Only question is which god will be first and what magic will he bring us this time?Ley lines are as real as the cities and monuments build exactly and precisely on them.Some of them are older than humanity as know in from our books.Do some exploration of the ley lines nodes close to you.Listen to the myths and legends of the area, visits the places you hear about and try to see them with open eyes and a free mind.Dive into the past to find out where the origins of the stories and myths you found might lead you.Nature is all around and includes ley lines, we only have to allow to see and understand to imagine what might have been and what might be again.Magic is nothing but energy and technology observed by someone who does not know these things.Let a cave man watch Seinfeld and see what he draws on his cave wall once you and the TV are gone ;)
