Middle Ground

Post by LoneBear » Fri Nov 10, 2017 12:22 pm

Looking for a proper word that will translate into different languages correctly, to describe the various datum that exist in Nature:

Zero, center: the datum of the additive inverse, polarity. Positive and negative.

Unity: the datum of the multiplicative inverse. Speed (s/t) and energy (t/s) in the RS.

????: the datum of scalar change, involution and evolution. Stuck on this one... what is half-way between "shrinking" and "expanding?"

Stationary ?

Even. Undecided.

Heh. Just came to from the song I heard while playing Fallout 4, "You are undecided now, so what are you going to do" - cant remember the singer but it is a woman and an old song from U.S.

Hope that helps or gives ideas. :)

Tough indeed. Here are some dictionary results that more or less capture the essence:

equilibrium
equilibration
equalization
evenness
regularity
mediocrity
balance
middlingness
moderation
gauge
stability
measuredness
symmetry
stasis

I think I like "stasis"...

1) a state of static balance or equilibrium.
2) a state or period of stability during which little or no evolutionary change in a lineage occurs.

Scalar motion is basically "evolutionary" in the sense some evolves (moves into higher complexity and/or dimension, integration) or devolves (lower complexity, dimension, differentiation).

I'm doing some part-time security work, to help recover from the disease known as "Health Care" here in America.

I used to do convention security in Atlanta some 30 years ago and was really good at it (one of the benefits of chronic autism). Loved doing Sci-Fi conventions... got to meet and escort many TV stars, including Deforest Kelley (Dr. McCoy), Jimmy Doohan (Scotty), George Takei (Sulu), Sylvester McCoy (7th Doctor Who), Adam West (the original Batman, and a big Dr. Who fan), Julie Newmar (Catwoman from Batman), Jonathan Harris (Doctor Smith from Lost in Space), Louise Jameson (Leela from Doctor Who--whom had never seen fireflies before and was overwhelmed by their beauty), Nicholas Courtney (Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart) and Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troy--big fan of Harleys, and wanted me to take her out for a ride).

Marina Sirtis sounds NOTHING like she does on Star Trek-TNG. Heavy British accent (I think it is Cockney), looks very different and is a very small person. I was chatting with her for 10 minutes and did not even know it--until she said, "excuse me, time for me to get up on stage."

Old Polaroid of me, escorting Jimmy Doohan. I'm on the right in the Star Trek security "red shirt" -- you know, the guy who never makes it to the end of the episode! Couldn't resist. (I'm in my late-20s here--beard just starting out. Have worn a beard since I was 24.)

Enough of my old "war stories"... let's just say that I have had a very active life.

I didnt knew you need "wear" a beard mine just keeps on growing on its own ;D

The problem of my beard is that it is so such a mess and scarce and grows mostly to the right side so I deem it unworthy of growing it long at all, I tend to keep it very short. Some times like this winter time I might let it grow for warmth but even at that it is almost useless. Found the proper word for it "bristle/stubble". Few weeks ago I bought "Phillips OneBlade" trimmer its been very good so far, very little skin irritation. I also keep my hair short since I am slowly going bald partially, its in my genes, uncle is a living example and my bigger brother too, our little brother is about 27 years old and doesn't show signs of hair loss, yet.

Stasis was the one that jumped out at me when reading through the suggestions.

I thought LB was doing his Big Boss Man impression with his new avatar image... :lol:

Nice one with taking up the old role again, I hope you get to meet some more stars, this time some of the Stargate persuasion... you are long overdue meeting Daniel, O'Neill, Teal'c, Carter and co.! :wink:

They have been showing it on TV again over here and it's great to re-watch, I quite fancy getting a copy of all of the series then working my way through it. One of the recent episodes was when the TV crew were allowed in to film but kept getting the runaround from O'Neill and co. but managed to pick up enough to get a good idea of what was going on. Makes you wonder how true to life that episode was considering all the accurate material the writers came up with for the series, especially since they said they didn't research George Hunt Williamson's work beforehand...

This is just like SG-1 and SG- Atlantis! Which makes me wonder who are the script writers for this show ? Are they tapping into the Archive consciously or unconsciously?
Did you ever read any of George Hunt Williamson's books in the Antiquatis library? It's like reading the original story line for the Ancients in the Stargate shows--the Ancient database, the Starways (stargates)... since they were written 50 years before SG-1, you got to wonder.
I think i'll save a few of his books to read through when I re-watch it to see how much of GHW material they used.
