• ## Integer Factorization Update 9/21/2023: The Zone Grid, The Trivial Jump, Etc.

Advertisements It’s been a week of inundation by ideas. I’ve battled headaches and all of the struggles of balancing potentially good mathematical revelations with all of life’s necessary other concerns. I am in a play – It’s a small role, but I am also the Musical Director for some gospel song interludes the director wants…

• ## Integer Factorization: Still At It …

Advertisements . . . but otherwise, little to report. I’m filling in spaces where values are needed for the various columns in my nearly-complete chart of all the discrete semiprimes between 0 and 20000 whose Ascents are greater than 0; i.e., whose Ceiling Squares do not differ from them by exactly a perfect square, which…

• ## Rita Gardner Has Been Saved

Advertisements Okay, get ready for a strange, silly, pop-culture-addict, time-traveler-wannabe adventure. Look at this. I LITERALLY WAS JUST THINKING ALONG THESE WEIRD LINES, AND I GOT TO WATCH IT GET LITERALLY WEIRDER, AS IF ON COMMAND. My command. And that’s scary, and I don’t know what to do about it right now except to blog…

• ## And now, a message from the odd positive integers, my grandson Keegan, and myself.

Advertisements Part I: I decided simply to graph the values of the (Adjusted) Ceiling Square and its remainder for all of the odd positive non-prime integers I’ve put in my 3D graph so far (1 through 441). The result jumped out at me with its near-symmetry of dots, which appear in the graph below. But…

• ## Integer Factorizations: Notes for the week of Jan 8-14, 2023

Advertisements Consider odd positive composite integer m, with adjusted ceiling square c2 and remainder r. There will be a least positive integer s such that m=s2+t2 for some positive t<s. This value of s will be greater than or equal to the ceiling root c corresponding to the ceiling square. Define the ascent of m…

• ## The Law

Advertisements He said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.” – Matthew 13:52 NIV I thought of this as I compiled a table for thorough…

• ## Is It Supernatural, or Just Unknown?

Advertisements A Post About Magick, Mysticism, Revelation, Inspiration, Consciousness, and Your Secret Self NOTE: In this post, I will use words like “just” or “simply” in the sense of “this is all that might be going on here,” or “there need be nothing more elaborate at work here than this.” Do Not Be Fooled: That…

• ## The Star

Advertisements Far, far more distant than Venus, its light not reaching us for uncountable years… Crowley’s card brings it close, almost immanent, associates it with that planet so close to us… He did not understand intergalactic distances as we do, but still, he might have understood something of the speed of light, the immensity of…
