    Motherboard, NJ - Prelude: The Waste Land of Circuit Boards

    math is the cruelest for finding meaning.
    all of reality adding up to numbers,
    and all the numbers adding up to nothing meaningful.

    [Shannon–Hartley theorem/rendering of Parthenon]

    the proportions always made us architects feel good.
    the golden ratio and the fibonaccci sequence.
    meaningless symbols and their relationships,
    somehow justify the already meaningful.

    we’re going to concede one day that a string of data is the meaning of life,
    and as you read that string of data you will find no meaning.

      Erin thanks for posting...on the Torah/Hebrew (few minutes in)....

      back in the late 90's, I found a website called Y-Files (pre-netscape days).  Y-Files - presumably a clever knock-off of X-Files series with the statement "why?" which  justified the Bible's stories through various considerably more scientific and mathematic proofs of sorts.  Moderators were like Ph.D physicists who clearly were Jesus fans. 

      The most interesting was, the bible in Hebrew as reviewed and calculated by Ivan Panin

      for example

      Let's take the number seven as an illustration of the way thepatterns work. Seven is the most prolific of the mathematical serieswhich binds scripture together. The very first verse of the Bible "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth" (Genesis 1:1), contains over 30 different combinations of seven.

      at the time, even got my pastor to quote some Y-Files and/or Ivan Panin research but he quickly backed-off as this obsession can be classified partially as numerology.  In the end, freshman year in college (circa 1997) I proposed some shit on relativity to the guys at Y-Files (via email)  and they responded with some non-sense "God's word....god wants his best..."

      divinity and numbers is either completely meaningless or the answer, to what though?

About this Blog

Boredom as a result of too much to do.  Too much professional practice architecture.  Too much reality. Lots of fiction and lots of history.
