Hi Bruce, This is Artemy. I’m back and I do want to visit you. Tell me when would be a good time. We had a great trip. Most of it was in the fourth layer, but we visited friends on New Trada. We tried to persuade Lem to do something about how screwed up Origin […]Read more "Artemy is Back with Ideas"
Hi, Are all three of you there now? I hope so. This letter is more an attempt to try to get back to writing stuff really relevant to the books as well as to my theory and the relevance of time as a geometric variable. We all know that a 3-ball is defined by the […]Read more "In the Beginning There was Time"
Hi Bruce, Well. That is a pretty interesting theory. I have one serious question. What happens if the lines don’t cross at π? That would mean that looking a different direction allowed one to see only one quarter of the stars. So what? May be πi is where the Big Bang is. It might look […]Read more "NEW LETTER FROM SALLYS"
Dear Sallys, Sorry, it’s taken so long to answer, but showing how my model could work in three dimensions took some time. As it is I have another topic to talk about first. The question you asked requires equations to answer so I’ll leave it till last. Then those who don’t like equations can read […]Read more "Dear Sallys, a Theory"
Hi Bruce I like your universe. It has become formed enough that I am limited in my comments. Just because I cheated on Lemma doesn’t mean I will cheat on Magda and Avita. I really do believe as they did about Origin (your Earth) that people from outside should only have very limited influence on […]Read more "Reply to Bruce by Sallys"
Hi Sallys, Good to hear from you again. The reason is something else again. I really think Lem was right. At the moment I think we need to solve our own problems. Now about our 1-d universe. First I had already discovered that 3.14159 was not right and that 3.383 was. The range of the […]Read more "My reply to Sallys re 1-d universe"
Hi Bruce, This is Sallys. Artemy and Maglie are off to New Trada to ask if there is any help for how screwed up Artemy thinks Origin (Earth) is. She actually managed to contact Lem, but he pointed out that he almost never manipulates and as catastrophes go this is pretty minor. He didn’t even […]Read more "Letter from Sallys"
Hi Artemy (Maglie and Sallys too), Sorry I took so long to answer your letter. You did answer most of my questions. I looked up movement through a fluid and did follow what you said. It still sounds like a hypothesis to me. I will try to answer your questions and then maybe ask you […]Read more "To My Galactic Pen Pal"
Hi, Bruce, Thanks for the letter on your blog. I wasn’t expecting it and only found it by chance. The funeral by the way was in June of 2016. Such interesting questions. I’ll answer them as best I can. First of all, I see your problem with our model re fuel consumption. First of all, […]Read more "Reply"
Hi Artemy, What a welcome surprise. I never thought I’d hear from any of you. Hey, I didn’t even know Maglie and Sallys were still alive. I would have assumed you were. Since I’ve got you, I have several questions to ask. The first is about FTL. I don’t see how your model of a […]Read more "FTL, Clothes, Gender, and Stuff"
