Re: 1190: "Time"

I also wonder if anyone else saw the Oracle Hypatia's speech in Aubron's 2881 frame as "I am sorry (I to apologize). Your language is like those spoken by the (?). Difficult (and cryptic?) BUT I learned it." Sorry if redundant, but I didn't see anyone else suggest the word difficult there....

Re: 1190: "Time"

Totally agree, higgs-boson. Can someone remind me how they got two bags back again? I thought they had to abandon Cueball's bag after the meowlpie attack and he carried everything thenceforth in her bag. Did the beanies give Megan another one? Okay, I went back and found that when they left the hous...

Re: 1190: "Time"

"Tell me where your home is." That one is pretty clear. I wonder if the blotchiness of the Oracle Hypatia's speech will continue to get easier and easier to decipher as they pick up more on her accent and as she learns their language better? Notice this sentence is a command and it ends wi...

Re: 1190: "Time"

If I'm remembering correctly, we know that Aleph-1 is the infinitude of the integers, but as for the higher infinities, we're not sure how they are to be numbered, because someone could always come along and find an infinity that's larger than the integers but smaller than the reals.

Every time I'm in the past I'm desperate to ketchup to what's going on right now, but when I get here, I become impatient that people don't post faster so I have something new to read. Then I miss ketchupping. Some people are never satisfied, I guess.

Re: 1190: "Time"

It strikes me that the tower would be a safe place to sleep tonight, likely to be free of meowlpies and other predators. Maybe they should do that so they can both sleep together, rather than taking turn and turn about down on the ground.

I think that's Jupiter; its position is very close to what Stellarium predicts for 13291/04/14. Darn, was about to say the same thing! Definitely Jupiter, and the date is around the 14th or 15th of April in 13291 ... So if this is 13291 (at something like 40°N latitude), then according to Stellariu...
