lower price jewellery – a spoem by pqycnhuox@gmail.com

Mainly because jewellery and also jewels are certainly not goods find as frequently as they perform food or even their own cars’ fuel, you can expect these products to be expensive.

However, they are offered as these can be used to show tender thoughts, which in turn cannot be stated by simply simply words and phrases.

Even though you just get it on your own, it is a type of self-affection, a reward anyone ought to have maybe in making good within your job.

Nonetheless, you’d still need to get it cheap. All things considered, you have to think about other outlays furthermore. This is why you should discover ways to find lower price jewellery.

Simulation Theory

link here to the mistaken idea that something called consciousness is able to be simulated. … If a cut up were done of multiple universe theory and simulation theory together, then there might be something in it. Because to simulate the emerging universe demands the addition of another universe, plus another to simulate that, in a cascade of simulations; the mistake comes about through the Cartesian error of the anthropological exception (alluded to in the Guardian article). Human consciousness cannot be extricated from nature in any part but all of consciousness requires all of nature or cosmos, chaos, or chaosmosis.

Seth Lloyd on quantum information processing as a way of life

Quantum computers work by storing and processing information at the most microscopic level. For instance, if you have an electron, you could call an electron spinning out like this zero, you could call an electron spinning like that one, and you could call an electron spinning like that zero and one at the same time, which is the primary feature of quantum computation. A quantum bit—qubit—can be zero and one at the same time; this is where quantum computers gain their power over classical computers. …There is a special-purpose quantum computer, a quantum annealer, that’s made by a D‑Wave. This is a commercial device, and now a number of people have bought them. Lockheed Martin has bought a D‑Wave computer, Google and NASA have bought them, the Army is buying some of them. They’re buying them because they’re very interesting devices. Nobody understands exactly what’s going on inside them. They’re doing things that are quite mysterious in their own quantum mechanical way, because being mysterious is a quantum mechanical thing….D-Wave went along and built it … When they built it, it was indeed true that it didn’t behave in the way that you wanted it to behave—staying in the lowest energy state throughout the computation. It got excited to higher energy levels, but it still solves the hard problems. Why is this? Nobody knows….A few years ago, some friends of mine and I used a small quantum computer to simulate what happens in the process of time travel, because the theory of time travel is intrinsically quantum mechanical. If you want to find out what happens when you send a photon a few billionths of second backwards in time and have a try to kill its former self, well, we have experiment that tests to see what happens when you do that. … It turned out that one photon that tried to kill itself in the past always failed, because our quantum theory of time travel shows that you can’t go back and do something self-contradictory in the past, like kill your former self.

what I was going to learn from Madame Moreau would be learnt a few months later and in the company of Alba Cambó and Valentino Coraggioso. And that knowledge would have little to do with vocabulary lists and conjugations, but more with something of wider human relevance that might be summed up as the fact that beneath the thick skin of even the most armour-plated person there is always a crack that runs straight to the centre and you should think it over very carefully before raising a hand to signal your willingness to fall inside.

Bret Easton Ellis and Other Dogs, pp. 110-111, Lina Wolff, Trans. Frank Perry, Los Angeles, CA: & Other Stories

The way little people, bewildered people, try and explain art and life using a couple of proverbs designed for the illiterate. I shouldn’t have let him anywhere near that book, I thought. If you want to keep something safe, keep it to yourself, you should never let vulgar and simple-minded people anywhere near it. They turn everything into mincemeat; they can transform a diamond into filthy snow just by looking at it.

– Ibid., pp. 277-278

her eyes were someone else’s eyes, her mouth belonged to a different person, and even her hair was different. As though a building I had been living in for most of my life and whose every nook and cranny I thought I knew and believed I had seen, explored, and even felt shut in by from time to time, suddenly unveiled a set of alternate room, as though a secret door had been opened and was showing me a wing decorated completely differently from the rest of the house, using paints and materials that appeared to have been borrowed from a decadent film. That was where she was now.

– Ibid, pp. 286-287

her body was still cooling under a sheet that had stretched over her by two nurses and folded just below her chin. … A patch of sunlight wandering through the room or a breeze entering  suddenly through an open window, or a murmur coming from the street, would have provided that sense of the infinite, of something coming to a complete stop at moments like these.

-Ibid., p. 292

Disappointment – by John Burnside, from the volume Black Cat Bone

Hope will predominate in every mind, till it has been suppressed by frequent disappointments.

Samuel Johnson

 

I turn left out of the rain

at Kippo junction,

the windshield clearing to sky and a skim

of swallows over the road like the last few

pages of a 50s story book

 

where someone is walking home

to the everafter,

touched with the smell of the woods and the barberry

shadows where the boy he left behind

is standing up to his waist in a Quink-blue current,

 

a burr of water streaming through his hands

in silt italics, touch all hook-and-eye

beneath the swell, and fingers opened wide

to catch what slithers past – the powder-blue

and neon of a surer life than his,

 

scant as it is, and lost, in the gaze of others.

where Marks of Lispector encounters Specters of Marx

Minus Theatre at OFA 21 November 2015

Down every lane I was startled by the rustling of vaguely visible transparent forms. I told myself it was the wind whipping a snag of plastic bags, though each time I seemed to catch sight of a half-decomposed cadaver fleeing through the night in a luminous shroud.

– Lingis, Abuses (1994), p. 262

First Communion in Juazeiro do Norte, Brazil, Sebastião Salgado (1981)

First Communion in Juazeiro do Norte, Brazil, 1981Sebastiao Salgado

“The flesh in pain is anything but an object; sensibility, subjectivity fill it, with a terrible evidence. This evidence is turned imperatively to me, more pressing than the evolution of the planet and the anonymous enterprises in the humanized map laid out on it, more urgent than the tasks my own death has addressed to me. It is not in elaborating a common language and reason, in collaborating in transpersonal enterprises, that the human community takes form. It is in going to rejoin those who, fallen from the time of personal and collective history, have to go on when nothing is possible or promised.”

Abuses, Alphonso Lingis (1994), p. 236
