    Interesting stuff Paul. Sad news about John Conway. I read a book a few years ago about his discovery of ‘the monster’. Very interesting stuff, what little I understood.

    Maybe time’s short for mathematicians keying taxonomy.

    Perhaps more simply: they have the links so well-memorized in a private mind palace that widely-accessible external mapping isn’t envisioned as necessary.

    However, here we have won example of a digest stable bridge:

    Discrete-continuous relations of monstrous moonshine tightly tie lunar apse to nodes.

    The weather started clearing for public view here: Lib[e]ration

    Before that there were hints (e.g. Ramanujan, 104, 84) going back many months (some crystallized, some introduced and left opaque).

    There are more chapters in the present book, which can’t be red out-of-order.

    Tectonic plates reverse their movement before major earthquakes

    Researchers have discovered an interesting similarity in two of the largest recent earthquakes in Japan and Chile: a strange large-scale ground movement back and forth in the months leading up to the quake.
    . . .
    Could an observed untypical plate movement therefore give us a better warning of an imminent earthquake? Not really.

    “It would not be wise for a geophysicist to issue such a warning,” is Bedford’s sobering answer. “The observed signals of this study are not necessarily precursory movements of a major quake.”

    96: Time Pet Tee Full Moon Phi “Vert” Go “Vert” Moon Stir US

    In the (somewhat distant) past I noted something mathematically equivalent to this at the Talkshop:

    8.85087620052376 = 2/(1/1.18483367770519-1/1.61803398874989)
    8.85087620052376 = 2/(1/Chandler-Φ)

    8.85171394069616 = 2/(1/2.61803398874989-1/6.40939079526111)
    8.85171394069616 = 2/(ΦΦ-1/PolarMotion)

    To “shoot the moon” (as they say in Hearts) just put them together:

    8.85129505078776 = 4/(1/1.18483367770519-1/1.61803398874989+1/2.61803398874989-1/6.40939079526111)
    8.85129505078776 = 4/(1/Chandler-Φ+ΦΦ-1/PolarMotion)


    8.85129505078776 = 4/(1/Chandler-ΦΦΦ-1/PolarMotion)
    8.85129505078776 = 4/(1/Chandler-√5+2-1/PolarMotion)

    This tightly hinges apse to nodes to within a fraction of a second error per century.

    96: Tropically Synodic Constance

    The following expression is derived from 96 recent comments:

    11.862611384193 = 18.998/(-24.5/0.999978614647502+2/0.0808503463381246-1/8.84735777652798-0.5/1.61803398874989+0.5/2.61803398874989+1/30031+46.998/29.4474891061275)

    30031 = 30030 + 1 = 13*11*7*5*3 + 1

    Use 30030 if you prefer. It’s sharp enough, but the plus 1 may have discrete meaning so it’s left in.

    Review rigorous discrete-continuous derivation of Saturn’s period (mixed on “The Mayan Mystery” C[ENSO]Rship ware some only look 4 numbers while others red only words and informatively few digest both without misunderstanding, misinterpreting, and misrepresenting freedom).

    Putting those estimates together you’ll notice that the r-squared for J, S, J-S, & J+S is 1 (meaning perfect) and the errors are very-nearly constant and of the same sign. The factor is roughly:

    1.00000031800491 = 1 + (1.61803398874989)^(1/2)/4/10^6
    1.00000031818182 = 1 + 7/22/10^6
    1.00000031830989 = 1 + 1/3.14159265358979/10^6

    The systematic bias itself presents an interesting puzzle.
    Because the bias is vanishingly small, estimates are already sharp even with it left in.

    Scanning the terms in the Jupiter estimate above, notice:
    • phi
    • primorial
    • tropical year
    • lunar synodic month
    • Heegner — CAREFULLY compare and contrast: lunar nodes and apse left in 1/√2 = √2/2 but hear take IT out — THIS IS THE ARTICULATION KEY between lunisolar 179 & JS 178.
    • Saturn estimate

    There’s more depth to the Saturn estimate backstory than we’ve covered.
    This gets right to the inescapable Heart of discrete-continuous relations.

    Nirvana had a tune “Heart-Shaped Box” in the early 90s. Makes sense if EU in clue-D time — and aliasing material phase — with space in the definition of shape-D.

    For now a little vagueness is best left in, but right out of the gates 18.998 & 46.998 are derived from no miss story. Tip: Review for a factor of 1000. Do the substitution. Rearrange some algebra. Discover something rigorous and precise. Then be left with vanishing systematic bias.

    EU’11 need this slip-cycle algebra derived in previous discussion:
    1 / 178.266850068779 = 19J-47S

    Basically monstrous moonshine is giving us a knitting course beginning with:
    • Chandler wobble with polar motion
    • 179 lunisolar with JS 178

    How we miss-D the simple knit’s the mystery moving 4 word.

  10. Paul Vaughan says:

    Basically monstrous moonshine is giving us a knitting course beginning with:
    • Chandler wobble with polar motion


    Writing in too much of a rush there — and thus undercutting an important message.
    It’s far more than that. Moonshine ties the lunar nodes to apse precisely.

    This is a big deal and even so I’m realizing I don’t have time to communicate this the way it deserves. The communication burden is too monstrous because there’s so much symmetry to highlight. I’ll focus concise sketches on select moonlight shadows.

    It’s possible no one will be able to follow. People don’t have time for that level.

    Just keep in mind it’s something analogous to Lucas numbers, but that’s for phi. Heegner’s about e & pi. Ramanajan’s methods are universal. They work on phi, e, pi — or whatever. His methods are about discrete-continuous relations in general and Lucas is just one specific example from an infinitely broader field.

    The conventional mainstream narrative is that 100 years later people are still cluing into Ramanujan after Conway and others made some appreciation breakthrough about 30 years ago, but (and this is a BIG understatement) I suspect this version of history is extremely far from the truth.

  11. Paul Vaughan says:

    1/√2 = √2/2 […] THIS IS THE ARTICULATION KEY between lunisolar 179 & JS 178.

    Point of clarification: That’s the Heegner part of the the articulation key, the other part being of course the primorial term (which we already knew about). Heegner was the link missing (….to us, but I suspect long well-known to others).

  12. Paul Vaughan says:

    Now sacrificing elaboration to quicken the pace as necessary — from over here…
    …rearrange some algebra and solve for 1/U:

    84.0168459218229 = 194/(-85/11.8626151546089+279/29.4474984673838-1/36750.3379015986-1/30031)
    84.016845922161 = 1 / U
    -0.000000000402 = % error

    It’s another memorable instance where 30031 works slightly better than 30030.

    Discovery of long-sought tiny explosions that super-heat the sun’s corona

    Surajit Mondal, the lead author of the study, said, “What makes this really exciting is that these flashes are present everywhere on the sun, and at all times, including in the regions of weak magnetic fields, the so-called ‘quiet sun’ regions.”

    Dr. Atul Mohan said, “Our preliminary estimates suggest that these tiny magnetic explosions should collectively have enough energy to heat the corona, which is exactly what is needed for solving the coronal heating problem.”

    Astronomical Forcing of Sub-Milankovitch Climate Oscillations during the Late Quaternary (267 pages).
    [Wordpress can’t display the pdf so here’s the link within quotes:

    Abstract (short quote):
    Supported by multiple lines of evidence, the results of this thesis suggest that the Sun and Moon act together through gravitation and insolation to produce millennial-, centennial-and decadal- scale climate signals through tidal forcing of Earth’s atmosphere and ocean. Key mechanisms and components are precession, perihelion, perigee, lunation, and nutation (wobble of Earth’s axis).

    Example (from main thesis):
    The modern peaks in gravitational force occur at closest approaches of the Earth to Sun at the times of Metonic lunations (1878, 1893, 1973, 2011) and can be clearly seen in Figure 5.9., along with a projected peak in 2106AD. The perihelion distance starts to plateau at the end of the Maunder Minimum and the start of the Industrial Revolution [Figure 5.9].
    – – –
    Also – the caption to Fig. 5.10 reads:
    Gravitational variation due to Earth-Sun relationship, based on Metonic lunation data. Measurements of variation in gravitational force due to changed Earth-Sun distances are shown. A 133-yr cycle in gravitational force can be seen here. Negative values on the x-axis are BC. [bold added]

    Scientists find clues to solar variability in observations of other stars

    The research team’s initial findings indicate that variations in total solar irradiance since 1750 average 4.5 watts per square meter, or W m-² (a standard measure used by climate scientists to measure the extent of solar heating of Earth’s atmosphere).

    The authors cautioned that this number will likely decline substantially with future observations because, statistically, the longer a variability is measured, the less its average changes over time in most cases.

    Motions in the sun reveal inner workings of sunspot cycle
    by Max Planck Society

    The overall picture is that the plasma goes around in one gigantic loop in each hemisphere. Remarkably, the time taken for the plasma to complete the loop is approximately 22 years—and this provides the physical explanation for the sun’s eleven-year cycle.Furthermore, sunspots emerge closer to the equator as the solar cycle progresses, as is seen in the butterfly diagram. “All in all, our study supports the basic idea that the equatorward drift of the locations where sunspots emerge is due to the underlying meridional flows,” says Dr. Robert Cameron of MPS.

    On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

    On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

    I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

    But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

    Tesla battery cooling system is subject of federal safety probe
    JULY 2, 2020 — Los Angeles Times

    Federal safety officials are probing allegations of defective cooling systems installed in early-model Tesla vehicles.

    Tesla installed cooling tubes prone to leaks in Model S vehicles beginning in 2012, according to internal emails cited by Business Insider last week. The Times reviewed copies of the emails and other documentation that show the tubes were installed from 2012 until 2016, at which time Tesla cut off a supplier and began manufacturing the tubes in house.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in a statement to The Times, said it is “well aware of the reports regarding this issue and will take action if appropriate based upon the facts and data.” The agency also reminded auto manufacturers that they are required “to notify the agency within five days of when the manufacturer becomes aware of a safety related defect and conduct a recall.” Tesla appears to never have issued such notification.

    Tesla did not respond to requests for comment.

    Our paper about the start of Solar Cycle 25 has just been published in Astrophysics and Space Science:
    More can be found on the website of Jan Alvestad:

    Press release
    When did Solar Cycle 25 start?
    Patrick Geryl and Jan Alvestad developed a new theory (A Formula For the Start of a New Sunspot Cycle) to calculate the start of a new sunspot cycle: the paper will be published in Astrophysics and Space Science. Determining the start of a solar cycle is one of the most followed questions in astrophysics because it may be important to professionals like astronauts, astrophysicists, engineers responsible for protecting the power grid, etcetera.
    The latest NASA prediction panel considers April 2020 as likely to become the starting month of the new cycle. The authors disagree and point to October 2019 as a central point to calculate the start. Why? Since 1947 a radio telescope in Canada has been measuring solar flux. The authors found something peculiar: in most of the previous 6 cycle transitions, the lowest daily solar flux values were near 64. The new solar cycle started a few months before or after these clusters of minimum values. In October 2019 there was another cluster of measurements below 66. A preliminary conclusion was that Cycle 25 was going to start between August 2019 and January 2020.
    Co-author Jan Alvestad has a widely followed website Solar Terrestrial Activity Report and maintains high resolution sunspot counts based on images from the SDO NASA spacecraft. If you look (indirectly) at the Sun with telescopes, most days will be spotless near solar minimum, and those spots that can be observed are small and usually disappear quickly. However, there are plenty of tiny spots in high resolution images. For instance when other observers using traditional resolution telescopes see 1 sunspot at minimum, Jan Alvestad observes and documents 4-6 times more at the highest image resolution. This gives a new perspective on the 300 year old method of counting sunspots.
    Meanwhile the authors found more markers (under review) and their latest calculations point to November-December 2019, and especially December 2019 as the likely start of Solar Cycle 25.
    Shortly after the authors found that Solar Cycle 25 started in November or December 2019, they discovered something that at first seemed hard to believe. Using 365 days smoothing, 4 out of 5 of the data series available all had the solar minimum on the same day. The NOAA sunspot number, solar flux at 1 AU as well as both the STAR 1K and 2K high resolution sunspot numbers all had their lowest value on November 17, 2019. They sent a paper on this discovery for peer review knowing it would not be published before the official announcement of the start of Solar Cycle 25. Anyway, co-author Jan Alvestad added this important information to the STAR web site in June 2020. The pre-print was published on ResearchGate as the last in a trilogy of papers that could change how we determine when a new solar cycle begins.

    “Sulfuric acid solutions, the electrolyte used in current VRBs, can only hold a certain number of vanadium ions before they become oversaturated, and they only allow the battery to work effectively in a small temperature window,” said the Energy Department.

    “The low energy densities and small operating temperature window, along with high capital cost, make it difficult for the current VRBs to meet the performance and economic requirements for broad market penetration,” the Energy Department summed it up.

    A team at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) is proposing a new combustion mode—intelligent charge compression ignition (ICCI)—for ultra-high efficiency and low emissions simultaneously. A paper on ICCI is published in the journal Fuel.

    ICCI aims to realize flexible and controllable in-cylinder charge stratification fed by two complementary fuels: gasoline and diesel. To enable this dual-fuel combustion mode, the team utilized two common-rail direct-injection systems independently on a modified single-cylinder engine, each injection system being controlled by its own on-limits electronic control unit, respectively.
