Well anyways I'm pretty sure you posted something along the lines of: Falling behind in reading the posts because you were gone for the weekend at Lockheed helping out with trying to get us to the Moon and Mars. Savvy this Cat never forgets!
Ahhhh, yes, I think you could be right! They say that the first sign of old age shows in the memory (or lack thereof). Anyway, you got me! I generally try to not mention company names so that speculative conspiracy theorists don't use that name with "Rainman said..." Shame on me for violating my own rules! /ttiforum/images/graemlins/frown.gif
Yes, Merkabah (light vehicle). Do you know how to access yours?
I am working on it, but not there yet. Got some references that can help me accelerate the "construction"?
There is hidden speculation of 2 types of vehicles. One is the physical one that some more technologically advanced beings use to generate the fields necessary to travel thru the dimensions. However, they are only able to traverse the "LOWER" dimensions.
Interesting! I agree with the physical limitation of only visiting lower dimensions. In my "spare time" I have been trying to work thru the basic vehicle design that would "get us there". The triangular (actually 3-D tetrahedral) shape is key to building a light-field around the body. The connection that really got me going on this was the synchronicity of the description of the Merkaba as a "light vehicle" and the similarity to the concept of the Ring Laser Gyro (RLG), used in my field. The RLG actually uses a triangular pattern of mirrors, and splits a beam of light and sends it bouncing around the mirrors in both (clockwise and counterclockwise) directions. After a long enough trip around these mirrors, the difference between the two beams is formed as the primary sensor measurement. And what does it measure? Well, TIME rate of change of a body's ROTATION. Those were the two clues that had me "off" on my "sprint" to the finish line...not there yet!
My belief is that the RLG we are using right now as a mere sensing device for rotation and time, can be modified and scaled-up to become an actual CONTROL device. This is where my ponderings on closed-loop feedback systems, and how they relate to Chaos non-linear dynamics, comes in. I imagine the vehicle as shaped in a tetrahedral form (pyramids of Giza, anyone?). You sit in the middle of it, and a closed-loop light field is formed around you. The key control element is the "pilot"...or rather, the pilot's mind. Since thought is the only control means we know of that operates as fast (faster?) than light, the mind is the only "computing device" capable of acting fast enough to actually control the light vehicle in its journey through interdimensional adventures.
All speculation really, dont take my word for it.
:D I never ignore informed speculation! And so what does your speculative self say to my thoughts on the physical Merkaba that I express above? Any of it ring true? I've gotta say, you are one INTERESTING CAT!
