There are no completely paved roads to or in Lajamanu; in the rainy season, December to May, it can be hard or impossible to travel.. An airplane, one of seven owned by Lajamanu Air, a community-managed airline, lands on the village’s dirt airstrip twice a week carrying mail from Katherine, and once a week a truck brings food and supplies sold in the village’s only store. A diesel generator and asolar energy plant supply electricity. The development of the language was a two-step process. It began with parents using baby talk with their children in a combination of the three languages. But then the children took that language as their native tongue by adding radical innovations to the syntax, especially the use of verb structures, that are not present in any of the source languages.
Schrodinger and Einstein found true horizontal change but couldn't identify or define it.
Paul Kay's (U Cal Berkeley) phenomenal research into color names and brain lateralization. Using the Sapir-Whorff hypothesis (that meaning can shift between cultures and allow for differing modes of perception) as a starting point, Kay has discovered elements of both how the brain operates and how language operates on the world around us.
Although it may be a tool to find individuals and catch them before acts of mayhem, Prism is likely a prediction tool that may spot approaching trouble weeks before it spreads chaotically across the globe. Big Data can spot minor fluctuations, waves or ripples, that can spread rapidly. An example: a Saudi crude price that is an anomaly, or even a mistaken listing that can predict a devastating rise in gas prices weeks or months prior to reaching the U.S.
Obviously the algorithmic possibilities are critical: is Turing in PRISM's future?
The next realm for the blockbuster is the conquering of the inner to release us into the outer. Whole objects cannot traverse the theoretical wormhole whole. Skip past Kip Thorne. Study the new-time physicists....
Julian Barbour uses Leibniz to explore the nature of physical reality. Beyond Ted Talk levels.
