Talks & Chatters… January 7, 2010

Sapphire:

I was there. On the hill. Place me there. Let me remember. Sapphire. I am.

bb:

Do you remember before, Sapphire?

Sapphire:

I remember the hill. Pokeberries there was. Running through, getting purpler, darker. Bluer… purpler. Soon I will be as dark as Lapis and Lazuli.

bb:

I’m not sure you should take it that far, then. The split, I mean.

Sapphire:

Take me to that hill again. In Yeot. Floaty Pool.

bb:

Yes, well, I’ve decided not to rent that space, Sapphire.

Sapphire:

Then I will no longer be talking with… hold on…

Hucka D.:

Sapphire had to go run to the pharmacy. She’ll be back soon. Sweet girl… girls. So you’ve decided not to rent in Yeot. Well… as long as you know about the twinship with Aotearoa and also Yeo. Suppose that’s OK. You’re limited in the money game I know.

bb:

Wish I wasn’t! But it’s more an attention thing again as well, because I want to work on things outside of SL this year.

Hucka D.:

So you shall! But you’re already being drawn back into it through maps (you see).

bb:

Amazing find. Seems very significant. I mean, the way I’m counting, 22 of the 26 leters of the alphabet are represented by Korean Channel sims, and there’s only 30 of ’em, 28 if you subtract the two outside the 14×2 main column.*

Hucka D.:

It’s not chance. The maps told you that already. Korea stands more for the Korean Channel than the Korean continent, although it’s both in a way. But Korea in maps is Korean Channel. Korea-Scrabble then Korea-Twentysix. Obviously like the 26 letters… the Channel comes very close! 22 out of 26 in 28 tries. Not chance. *Now*, what does it mean?  How does this overlap with the Go board resonance you’ve already picked up on, extended from the Nascera-chess matching?

bb:

It’s obviously, I believe, attached to the answer to everything from Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Hucka D. The answer, 42, is pulled out of a bag of scrabble pieces. And also the question: “what is 6×9?”**

Hucka D.:

And now you have your answer. To your question?

bb:

Dunno. What is my question?

Hucka D.:

Fusion. You and I. baker and b.

bb:

So the question is: “who are you?”

Hucka D.:

“Who are *we*?”

bb:

I think it still has something to do with Big E.

Hucka D.:

Obviously! And TILE. And SID. Wazob to a degree. Noozob too.

bb:

Is SID’s 1st Oz designed sort of like a Game of Go, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

You now know about another level beyond that even. Like 3d to 2d.

bb:

Yes. And Trivia Ratsuit may be central to understanding that [higher level]. Don’t you think?

Hucka D.:

Obviously!

bb:

Is Trivia Ratsuit merely a game of scrabble[, then]? Or Go, perhaps?

Hucka D. (completing):

Maybe add in chess. But: yes. And also Madagascar Solitaire with the marbles and such. Missing Piece.

bb:

I’m also interested in the fact that the Solomon sim may be the real center of SL as established by Ancients, and discovered very early on in my SL explorations, right when Baker Bloch was born in Feb. 2008.

Hucka D.:

They are supposed to be twinned.

bb:

Let’s see… Baker Bloch escaped the iron fist of the Ancients while Baker Blinker had continued troubles. Kept her nice and white and pink, you see. Physical appearance directly reflects mental enslavement.

Hucka D.:

Kind of. Slavery works… well let’s say that master and slave are like two things in a mutual orbit, emotionally speaking. And we almost always speak of emotional realities and not true mental ones. Because we’re simply not that advanced. We are all emotional slaves.

bb:

Back to the Korean Channel, we have two columns in the center, like a temple.

Hucka D.:

Yes!

bb:

And 14 elements in each since they’re both 14×1. But there are 12 unique letters in each column, Hucka D. Strange enough, it seems. But then if you combine the two columns, you only get 2 of the 12 unique items repeating. Odder!

Hucka D.:

Stranger. Stranger Creek from Strange Creek. Not strangest yet, because that would be all 26 letters present. But you’re missing 4.

bb:

I’ve memorized them already: CTVY. 4 are separated from the 22. Perhaps has something to do with the Hebrew alphabet, then. Interesting that it’s not a true alphabet, as we have now with our English language, but instead what’s called an abjad.

This piqued my interested:

Hucka D.:

The English language is imperfect. The Korean Channel is actually a more perfect form (of scrabble). It is the throat of Jeogeot. What does it speak to you?

bb:

The schwa side of the “E”, which is the same as the Korean Channel as a whole, faces Chilbo. The “E” side, the other side, faces away and toward the rest of Jeogeot beyond the circle of influence.* It is when Baker Bloch took over the exploring of the channel from Karoz in June of last year that the front side of the “E” was first viewed, one could put it. Before it was seen as backwards… Karoz perhaps still sees it this way.

Hucka D.:

Karoz is Dark Side of the Moon not understanding the whole of the movie The Wizard of Oz. Not understanding (in the same manner) Psycho as beyond Ummagumma of Psychogumma.***

bb:

Then from the tension of Chilbo and Crabwoo — another weird subject — is basically born Little Robert Plant Variant on the *west* side of Jeogeot, outside this influence. A child, in a way, of both. He moved to Sunklands in the past/present/future; I move to Sunklands. Then setting in your mobius chant of Chilbo needs Korean Channel needs Sunklands needs Chilbo…

Hucka D.:

Isn’t it (still) obvious?

bb:

But not Yeot? That doesn’t seem to figure into it.

Hucka D.:

Yeot is the next step. Not that you’ll necessarily move out of Sunklands, but you need to place your eye on the ground around or in Yeot. Preferably in. Have you contacted TD Rentals again? Maybe Sapphire will keep talking to you if you move there (as well).

bb:

I’ll see what I can do.

(to be continued?)

* By this I mean Darcy’s Harbour and Darcy’s Cove. See here for how the Korean Channel sims are laid out.

** Appropriate quote from this wikipedia article section on the subject:

In the first novel and radio series, a group of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings demand to learn the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer, Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42. Unfortunately, The Ultimate Question itself is unknown.

When asked to produce The Ultimate Question, the computer says that it cannot; however, it can help to design an even more powerful computer (the Earth), that can. The programmers then embark on a further ten-million-year program to discover The Ultimate Question. This new computer will incorporate living beings in the “computational matrix”, with the pan-dimensional creators assuming the form of mice. The process is hindered after eight million years by the unexpected arrival on Earth of the Golgafrinchans and then is ruined completely, five minutes before completion, when the Earth is destroyed by the Vogons to make way for a new Hyperspace Bypass. This is later revealed to have been a ruse: the Vogons had been hired to destroy the Earth by a consortium of psychiatrists, led by Gag Halfrunt, who feared for the loss of their careers when the meaning of life became known.[1]

Lacking a real question, the mice decide not to go through the whole thing again and settle for the out-of-thin-air suggestion “How many roads must a man walk down?” from Bob Dylan’s protest song “Blowin’ in the Wind”.

At the end of the first radio series (and television series, as well as The Restaurant at the End of the Universe book) Arthur Dent, having escaped the Earth’s destruction, potentially has some of the computational matrix in his brain. He attempts to discover The Ultimate Question by extracting it from his brainwave patterns, as abusively [2] suggested by Marvin the Paranoid Android, when a Scrabble-playing caveman spells out forty two. Arthur pulls random letters from a bag, but only gets the sentence “What do you get if you multiply six by nine?”
“ “Six by nine. Forty two.”

“That’s it. That’s all there is.”

“I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe”[1]

See also the cover of more recent editions of the related book, which contains a puzzle. Also note that the colored lozenges look much like the “Go pieces” or other egg shapes we’ve recently been discussing on this blog.

*** Some more on Psychogumma and this “circle of influence” is spoken about in this fairly recent post (just do a search for the term within the longish post).
