Multidimensionality

If you've read my site before, then you saw my little quips about me wishing to be free from the constraints of time and space.  A dream, I know, and not one I spend much time pursuing, but it is still fun to consider.

Sam in the office sent this link from today's Onion.  "I Don't Define Myself By My Ability to Travel Between Dimensions".  Very Onion-y, of course. Their atlas (Our Dumb World) is quite hilarious (albeit with onion flavored irreverence) and one of their books almost had my son detained at Heathrow (because 15 year olds carrying a compilation of Onion articles could be considered terrorist threats --to be fair, there had just been those car bombings and there was an image of fire on the cover of the book!--either that or the guy with white gloves just wanted to read it, too!)

A couple of years back, I added a link to the bioengineering course site called Imagining the 10 dimensions

It's quite clear--good animations.

Of course, Michio Kaku explains these things quite well in his book Hyperspace.  That was a GREAT book! I remember that after reading it I felt for a day or two that I really understood this.  Then that feeling went away. :-( If I can't explain it, then I don't understand it.

Here is a clever video about the types of time travel depicted in books and movies by Lore Sjöberg on his AltText segment for Wired magazine. He "grades" the cleverness/feasibility/practicality of the various theories concering time travel.  Again, it almost made sense! (ok, and don't forget to watch SUV on Mars, too!)

Oh, and watch this SNL skit called Abe Lincoln and his Time Machine  Best line: "Excuse me, Sonny, are you John Wilkes Booth?"

 Until next time,

Kindly,

Joanne

A New Look

It seems the words were running off the navigation buttons in the previous style so I went to this new style.  I hope you all can read it much better.  I think it looks ok.  Give me a shout if it doesn't.

Much work, must run.

Kindly, Joanne

New Video and video page

I just posted a video review of Joy Hakim's series called The Story of Science.  I know, it's a bit long at a little over seven minutes.  Eventually, I'll find my stride.  If you want to cut to the chase about the book and not hear my musing about the inner children of scientists, skip ahead to about 2:50.

I also made a separate page on this site and you can find the button at the left to go find all of my video book reviews in one handy location!  Enjoy!

Until next time,

Kindly, Joanne
