spinning. we are all of us living in spin you know perched on this place rotating @ 17,000 mph / revolving @ 1,000 mph & we measure the times of our lives in revolutions & we express stability in terms relative to the surface of an object hurtling through the vast cold void along this crazyfast corkcsrew path & life is not linear ever.

Continuing to master the scope of my life in the revolutions….just like you. nice focus.

oh i forgetted to mention — you started this miss tangerine, your comment on the last entry & i thought, well, that makes sense, spinning, we’re all spinning all spun whee!

We measure our lives in revolutions.

Spinning.

If only it seemed so simple. If only everyone could rationalize on such a basic level.

It would all seem so much simpler. So much more cut-and-dried.

weeeeeeeeeeee. gonads & strife…. ya know?

gonads & strife, spinning. yeppers, that about covers it.

ack. micrsoft stole my comments. lets hope i can remember this.

ah but if life were. a straight long path. with no kink, just along straight edge with no dark corners, or twirls alight with dappled sunlight. i fear we would all go mad. and talking about spinning. i believe the 12 of the 12 is coming up soon. [she pause and wonders if she remember that right] back to the path. i’ll take mine twisty please.

*squishes*

it is, it is. i’m going to hate not being 42 anymore. i don’t care about the getting old part, i just liked being the answer. plus it was so cool in binary. 101010. 101011 just doesn’t have the same feel to it. 101010, well that positively spins.

ok, 42 is 101010 in binary? how does one translate these things? i’d like to know.

i think, as if i recall this properly from my days at college. lower binary number are based on a set of four. a mixture of 0 and 1’s which represent 2 to the power of a number. so basically you are adding up the twos as they are they are multiplied to the power of x. so 0111 = 0 + 2xx2 + 2xx1 +2xx0 = 4+2+1 = 7. hmm. maybe that is just not as clear as it should be. sorry. :oO

decimal = base 10

binary = base 2

in decimal, the numbers get bigger (or smaller) away from the decimal point, by a factor of ten

in binary, they get bigger or smaller by a factor of two

so in decimal we have 10, 100, 1000 …

whereas in binary it’s 2 4 8 …

so 101010 in binary is

1 = 32

0 = 0

1 = 8

0 = 0

1 = 2

0 = 0

2 + 8 + 32 = 42
