Beyond the Blue Event Horizon Review ã 102 която изпраща към Завода изследователски кораб Астронавтите откриват странния Уон и разгадават куп дълголетни тайн review of Frederik Pohl s Beyond the Blue Event Horizon by tENTATIVELY a cONVENIENCE July 6 2015 I read Pohl s Gateway 1st in this Heechee Saga My review s here I m somewhat surprised to see that I read it 3 yrs ago That s one of those time flies when you re not having fun just getting older thingies Skimming over my Gateway review I think I was impressed by that one than I was by this seuel wch isn t to say that I thought this was bad it just didn t seem uite as inspired One idea that caught my fancy is that of Gosh numbers Gosh numbers are numbers which represent than one uantity so that when you perceive the coincidence you say Gosh p 45 Ph well said the Dead Man gloomily all right Point five degrees is the angular diameter of both the sun and the Moon as seen from Earth Gosh How strange that they should be the same but also how useful because it is partly because of this coincidence that Earth has eclipses Minus forty degrees is the temperature which is the same in both Fahrenheit and Celsius scales Gosh Two thousand twenty five is the sum of the cubes of the integers one cubed plus two cubed plus three cubed and so on up to nine cubed all added together It is also the suare of their sum Gosh p 45 One The uantities Tiny Jim referred to as gosh numbers These are numerical uantities mostly of the sort called dimensionless because they are the same in any units you measure The mass ratio between the electron and the proton The Dirac number to express the difference between electromagnetic and gravitational force The Eddington fine structure constant And so forth We know these numbers to great precision What we do not know is why they are what they are Why shouldn t the fine structure constant be say 150 instead of 137 plus If we understoood astrophysics if we had a complete theory we should be able to deduce these numbers from that theory p 289 SO of course I had to do at least some cursory research on Gosh Numbers wch led me to where Beyond the Blue Event Horizon is discussed uoted then this follows Well that was a rather lengthy introduction so I will not delay any further the first Gosh Number17291729 is the least number expressible as the sum of 2 cubes in two different ways1729 123 13 103 931729 is also the 3rd Carmichael number1729 is also a centered cube number a dodecagonal number a 24 gonal and 84 gonal number The creators of the television cartoon Futurama thought so much of 1729 that they included it within the show on several occasionsGOSHThe author of the above is one Steven Pomeroy One of the Heechee artifacts found in Beyond the Blue Event Horizon is a couch that enables a person to broadcast their dreams We know that in human history many of the great inventions sprang up all over the world apparently independently maybe simultaneously Are they Heechee suggestions via the couch p 87 Zeitgeists fascinate me I m sure I ve been part of many A Ockham s Razor explanation for them than Pohl s fanciful suggestion might be that certain mindsets reach the same conclusions at the same time bc they re obvious next steps in the mindset s progression In other words Marconi Tesla shared a similar cultural background education that led to an obvious next step being the radio Wo this shared cultural educational background this zeigeist wdn t ve occurred In other words radio wasn t suddenly conceived of made by a farmer w no scientific training That however doesn t necessarily explain Tesla s ability to completely visualize inventions before building them I was about seventeen when my thoughts turned seriously to invention Then I observed to my delight that I could visualize with the greatest facility I needed no models drawings or experiments I could picture them all as real in my mind p 33 My Inventions Nikola Tesla 1995 Barnes Noble Books It might be interesting sometime to develop whole vast theories based on deliberate acceptance of probable typos misprints as not accidents EG the above Beyond the Blue Event Horizon uote from p 45 re Gosh numbers begins Ph well said the Dead Man gloomily w the Ph presumably intended to be Oh as Pomeroy uotes it in his article Then on p 129 it s printed But the relationship had been of suppliant and monarch in wch suppliant was presumably meant to read supplicant But was it After all a suppliant is a person making a humble plea to someone in power or authority a supplicant is a person who asks for something in a respectful way from a powerful person or God SO what s the difference According to the etymology for suppliant is 1400 50 late Middle English Middle French present participle of supplier Latin supplic re to beseech supplicate can be confused w supplicant The same source provides an etymology for supplicant as 1590 1600 Latin supplicant stem of supplic ns present participle of supplic re to supplicate see ant doublet of suppliant what s a doublet According to Wikipedia In etymology two or words in the same language are called doublets or etymological twins or possibly triplets etc when they have different phonological forms but the same etymological root Often but not always the variants have entered the language through different routes Because the relationship between words that have the same root and the same meaning is fairly obvious the term is mostly used to characterize pairs of words that have diverged in meaning at least to some extentFor example English pyre and fire are doublets Modern words with similar meaning but subtle differences contribute to the richness of the English language as exemplified by the doublets frail and fragile both from the Latin adjective fragilis one might refer to a fragile tea cup and a frail old woman but never frail tea cup whilst fragile old woman adds a dimension of meaning by implying emotional infirmity rather than physical The point is I don t see where suppliant supplicant have diverged they seem to have the same meaning w suppliant coming 1st What is Pohl really up to here It s obvious to me that everything in this novel is just a smokescreen to hide the combined significance of Ph suppliant Don t believe me That s bc yr pH balance is alkaline I m acid tongued both literally figuratively Further supporting my theory is this That s not exactly a tenth of a number Robin said Sigfrid p 230 The careful reader will note that the psychoanalyzing program is credited w this sentence when it shd clearly be the science program Albert If you think back to high school chemistry class you may recall that pH is an abbreviation for potential hydrogen A pH number measures from 0 to14 how acidic or alkaline a liuid is anything above 7 is alkaline and anything below 7 is acid Water has a pH level of 7 it s neutral meaning it has the same amount of acids and alkalis which balance each other out I don t want to give too much away about the story of Beyond the Blue Event Horizon hence my punning tangent above Shucks I m not really acid teongued Nonetheless I can t resist uoting this They re called prayer fans Wan No no he shrilled crossly taking it away from her and marching crossly into the chamber You do not pray with them You read them Like this p 138 Let that be a lesson to you the Bible the ur an were meant to help keep kafirs like myself cooler in hot desert environments they re not for reading All those silly religious fanatics have got it all bass ackwards The Heechee Saga is epic After than three uarters of a million years of rolling slowly around Earth s very distant sun the artifact pulled itself into a new orbit and surged away p 202 That may seem a bit too long term to wrap yr head around but think of this Mayflies have an average lifespan of 24 hrs their lifespan can be as short as 30 minutes humans in the US have an average lifespan of 782 yrs Interestingly the US is 38 in the list of longest lived Japan s at the top w 826 The average expectancy independent of country is 672 males 65 females 695 SO contrast a Mayfly living 30 minutes to a human male making it to 65 the human male lives 1129580 times longer than the Mayfly who depending on the species and after hatching mate lay eggs and die again We have time to notice them but do they even notice us It s completely reasonable if still only speculative that there s another critter out there to whom we re naught but a Mayfly Not much development occurred in the fifteen years between the removal of the colony from its prehistoric African home and Suint s death The Heechee were not discouraged In fifteen years they did not expect much They had much longer plans than that p 262 They tidied up behind them as they always did Then they went away and allowed the rest of that particular experiment among all their experiments to run For eight hundred thousand years p 262 Putting that in the human Mayfly scale again If the human male lives 1129580 times longer than the Mayfly by making it to 65 then the above eight hundred thousand years wd put the human male at age 46 Thank you Frederik Pohl for stimulating me to do the above research The Reckoning Searching for Meaning with the Father of the Sandy Hook Killer eclipses
