The Multiverse Explained by HKurtRichter on Sun Jan 29, 2012 8:29 am
Multidimensionality and Tachyonics

A dimension is simply the measurable nature of a given quantity. Measured quantities such as length, area, and volume are good examples. Whenever we specify the value of a real quantity we should always include the unit of measure, since it is the type of unit that indicates the dimensions of the quantity. For instance, a distance can be in meters, feet, miles, etc., which are units of length. Thus, the dimension of distance is length.

Ordinary space has three dimensions of length. That is, we live in a world in which we measure distances up or down, sideways, and forward or backwards. A box, for instance, has the dimensions of breadth, depth, and height. By contrast, a plane surface (table top, basket-ball court, one side of a sheet of paper, and so on) exhibits two dimensions of space (two measures of length across, at right angles to each other), and a straight line has just one dimension (a single measure of length).

Physicists abbreviate spatial...

Writer's Alchemy by starweaver on Thu Jan 22, 2009 9:32 am
Since I've been writing with more discipline lately, instead of waiting for bursts of inspiration, I've come to see the process a little differently.

Some writers work very organically or spontaneously. They start with a character or a premise and just start writing and see what happens. My own inclinations have always been to be a bit more premeditated than that. I say "a bit more" because I certainly don't have everything worked out in advance, but I do like to have a clear notion of where the story is going, what the characters are like, and what the pivotal points in the plot are. If the story takes place in an unfamiliar setting, I also like to do a little world-building before I start.

What I've been noticing is that something very magic often takes place somewhere during the writing process. The story becomes more than the sum of its parts; it delivers more than I've consciously put into it. This can happen gradually as the story develops, or it can feel like it's happening...

Day 5 update. by Silvanus on Fri Sep 12, 2008 10:46 pm
5-day Goal: 1000 words.
Written: 1402 words.

I am satisfied with the work so far. I think I'm writing at a fairly good level and I like the characters and plot. I also like the development of backstory and my plans for the future.

One can find a picture of the cast at http://silvanus-snow.deviantart.com/art ... t-97608638 .

<P>The <a title="Retro Jordans 5" href="http://www.sportsneakersale.com/air-jordan-5-c-99.html" target=_blank><STRONG>Retro Jordans 5</STRONG></a> Best External Hard Drives</P>
<P>Until recent times, many of us by no means contemplated the chance for some kind of external storage device. Protecting info has been limited by the internal hard drive. Regarding portability, we had often the Compact disk as well as for individuals who cannot remember or simply had not been born at this time the terrible floppy disc. A good deal has recently transformed since that time, and therefore the rate of technological know-how is going at an even faster rate at present. The things that used to be thought to be a whole lot of files has become extremely very small. This is found possible from the arrival of the external hard drive, of which produced a more flexible technique of storage space on a much higher size. We usually now work with our...
