GORT, LIMITED FORK THEORY, and THE STIG!



Announcing: Project Stig: Gort edition




In Limited Fork Theory, collage as an information and intersection set
need not maintain consistency or continuity of form, duration, space, scale, substance, time, and/or configuration, for instance.

Collage system components (systems & subsystems themselves) need not touch directly, need not maintain close proximity
—as in celestial collages known as a constellations or star perceptual systems.


(from shaw.ca)

Depth ceases to register, ceases to have relevance for the human eye at such distance.

As if infinity compounded by infinity,
not the same infinite distance from us,
some theoretically further, some mathematically closer
though without relative difference on the impact on
what seems equally unviewable;
equally infinitely distant through unassisted human eyes,
including the extended viewing imagination can amp up.


For a moment, I return to Limited Fork Theory's humble start,
the first theory video (from 2005): DOD: the death of depth:



(a Limited Fork Theory root system, and from it, these new, these further, these extended, these growing,
these continuing bifurcations)



Here is what happens to this centered poam expressed as text, this anchor point system,
this bifurcation station, this language system hub

as it interacts further, extends, enhances, confounds, transforms
in acts of kaleidoscopic symmetry in forms of translation,
in forms of multidirectional journeys through/in/besides/etc. language systems:

English - French - English - German - English - Italian - English - Portuguese - English - Spanish - English

(in the lost in translation vehicle, a transport system as is metaphor).


Original English Text:
As if infinity compounded by infinity,
not the same infinite distance from us,
some theoretically further, some mathematically closer
though without relative difference on the impact on
what seems equally unviewable;
equally infinitely distant through unassisted human eyes,
including the extended viewing imagination can amp up.


Translated to French:
Comme si infini composé par infini, pas la même distance infinie de
nous, un certain théoriquement autre, un certain mathématiquement
plus étroit cependant sans différence relative sur l'impact sur ce
qui semble également unviewable ; yeux humains sans aide traversants
également infiniment éloignés, y compris le bidon étendu ampère
d'imagination de visionnement vers le haut.


Translated back to English:
Like so infinite composed by infinite, not the same infinite distance
from us, some theoretically other, some mathematically narrower
however without relative difference on the impact on what seems also
unviewable; human eyes without beams assistance also infinitely
distant, including the wide can amp of imagination of viewing upwards.


Translated to German:
Wie so endloses theoretisch bestanden durch endloses, nicht der
gleiche endlose Abstand von uns, einige anderes, irgendein
mathematisch schmaleres jedoch ohne relativen Unterschied auf der
Auswirkung auf, was auch unviewable scheint; menschliche Augen ohne
die Lichtstrahlunterstützung auch unendlich entfernt, einschließlich
die breite Dose Ampere von Phantasie von aufwärts ansehen.


Translated back to English:
Like so endless theoretically insisted by endless, not the same
endless distance from us, some other, any mathematically narrower
however without relative difference on the effect up, which also
unviewable seems; human eyes without the light beam support also
infinitely removes, including which ampere of fantasy from upward
regard broad box.


Translated to Italian:
Come così infinito insistito teoricamente da infinito, non la stessa
distanza infinita da noi, un certo altro, qualsiasi matematicamente
più stretto tuttavia senza differenza relativa sull'effetto in su,
che egualmente unviewable sembra; gli occhi umani senza il supporto
del raggio di luce egualmente infinitamente rimuove, includendo che
ampère della fantasia dalla vasta casella di riguardo ascendente.


Translated back to English:
Like therefore infinitely insistito theoretically from infinite, not
the same infinite distance from we, a sure other, whichever
mathematically more strait however without relative difference on the
effect in on, than equally unviewable seems; the human eyes without
the support of the light beam equally infinitely remove, including
that to ampère of the fantasy from the immense case of ascending
care.


Translated to Portuguese:
Como conseqüentemente infinita o insistito teòrica de infinita, não
a mesma distância infinita dos nós, uns outros certos, qualquer
matematicamente mais strait entretanto sem diferença relativa no
efeito dentro, do que ingualmente unviewable parece; os olhos humanos
sem a sustentação do feixe luminoso removem ingualmente infinita,
including aquele ao ampère do fantasy do exemplo immense de cuidado
ascending.


Translated back to English:
As consequently infinite the teòrica insistito of infinite, not it
same infinite pitch of we, some other certainties, any mathematically
more strait however without relative difference in the effect inside,
of that ingualmente unviewable seems; the human eyes without the
sustentation of the luminous beam remove infinite ingualmente,
including that one to the ampere of fantasy of the immense example of
care ascending.


Translated to Spanish:
Como por lo tanto infinito el insistito del teòrica de infinito, no
él la misma echada infinita de nosotros, algunas otras certezas,
matemáticamente más estrecho sin embargo sin diferencia relativa en
el efecto adentro, de ese ingualmente unviewable nos parecemos; los
ojos humanos sin la sustentación de la viga luminosa quitan el
ingualmente infinito, incluyendo aquél al amperio de la fantasía del
ejemplo inmenso del cuidado que asciende.


Translated back to English:
Like therefore infinitely the insistito of the teòrica of infinite,
not infinite same he thrown it of us, some other certainties,
mathematically more Straits nevertheless without relative difference
in the effect inside, of that ingualmente unviewable we look like; the
human eyes without the sustenation of the luminous beam clear
ingualmente infinitely, including that one to the ampere of the
fantasy of the immense example of the care that ascends.


In these transactions of translation, the exchanges are multidirectional;
not complete losses, but twistings, nudges, replacements, substitutions approximations; attempts to work on a puzzle —so there is some sense of expecting possibilities of resolutions,
enough provided, a substantial enough stepping-stone so that what is next
might take on increased likelihood of connection with something, of the accessing of something

in both (or more) directions,
the center returned to, marked with information
from the transaction, from the connecting, and then bifurcates again,
connects again, is marked with information of these interactions,

the initial conditions (that limit what's possible to the infinities bounded by the context established
by the active set of initial conditions of each transaction)

Perceptual flatness links and lassos stars onto a single plane,
often with the apparent uniformity of a necklace —such as these radiant beads:

and so we dress up the sky, seeing something that can be perceived as great even without details present through lenses
of telescopes —I'm hearing LeAnn Womack's I Hope You Dance right here...

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give fate a fighting chance


And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their years and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance

(star from James Jensen Design)




In establishing connections across scale, space, form, time, links to and from hubs
or anchor points —bifurcation stations

(which any point can be,
any point from any scale);

in making connections, what is mapped is a collage of interactions,
a warped or here-and-there regular (for a duration of time) proxy-extended kaleidoscopic symmetry

(from American Mathematical Society)

(a symmetry of close relationships that extend & enhance identities, that bring together,
construct, no matter how brief the union
, how ultimately [assuming such ultimate exists] [un]successful the unification, evidence that there was unification marks participants;
information of unification becomes part of the components of interaction,
one of the collaborators in close relationships
such as shadows, echoes, and reflections and approximations of such)
in which a logic of connection forms sufficient similarity
or purpose that extends this pattern of logic, forming a symmetry of logic that can manifest

in any, in multiple forms
on any, on multiple scales
in any, in multiple locations
at any, at multiple times
for any, for multiple intervals and/or durations.



The logic can link visual, sonic, olfactory, tactile, cognitive, imaginative structures, patterns, hunches, errors, etc.,
these linked tines often aesthetically pleasing, often jarring —depending, depending, depending

perhaps helped into acquiring such configuration or (flexible) frame by desire/curiosity/need to construct it,
that information encouraging that which is or can become findable according to the search parameters
to be more likely to be found;
the information becomes biased/oriented/directed through interacting with the search used to investigate, used to understand; this unfolding of the possible unfoldings marks the reality available to be perceived/detected.


Metaphor can function as a tool-kit or tool system
for forging liasons between at least two entities
(either end/any end of metaphor can split into any number of tines,
and the ends of metaphor do not have to split into the same quantity of tines.
)
Metaphor is not only transformation or morphing of something(s) into other thing(s),
but it is also travel, route, path as well as vehicle; a transport system,
for implicit in transformation is movement from configuration to configuration,
and what can be transformed includes that possibility that destination(s) and point(s) of departure
do link, do come together on some scale in some location for some duration of time on some scale

metaphor becomes a tool for navigating whatever is/was/becomes navigable.
Metaphor travels within a kaleidoscopic symmetry it makes/identifies.



Metaphor is also a form of collage
(as are text poams).

The collage may be layered, convoluted, warped; have widely varying densities, may take on the regularity of a quilt or agricultural fields, may be the universe, the brain and its content, cellular structures.

Here are two visual metaphors by Bizarro himself: Dan Piraro:

(from Bizarro comic blog Bizarro Trading Cards are now available, by the way)


These two ads offer fused or stacked collages in which metaphor is embedded/is the vehicle of fusion, how bean and burger converged, how mustache and hat merged with identity; text other than the language of placement of the hat is minimal:

it's the hat



So I set out on a really big road trip
through as much kaleidoscopic symmetry as I could find/make:

yes I was looking for The Stig

--and I found Gort--


a reverent & irreverent twin study


—yes; The Stig's personal ancestry includes his life and work as Gort.


His better-than-monkish silence, his unprecedented driving skills (licensed for light years), and his love of Theremin assisted alien lullabies prepared him to get around the universe in tune
—but that was a dream job from which The Stig has retired

to drive vehicles on Top Gear in a circle the diameter of the Gort-guarded flying saucer spacecraft in the 1951 release of
Day the Earth Stood Still, the film in which Klaatu through Michael Rennie made the earth still for thirty minutes, to the delight of Sam Jaffe as Professor Barnhardt, physicist, and Einstein substitute (a la Equal Brand sweetener) whose equation (identified by Klaatu as a problem in celestial mechanics) is accelerated by the space traveler's help
on a chalkboard Hilda was about to erase before Klaatu's caution against that erasure startles her.

Klaatu & Bobby interact with Barnhard's equation:

Barnhard with blackboard equation:

Einstein with blackboard equation:

(from father wooley.com)


I also like (kaleidoscoping further) Sam Jaffe as the medical guru heading Ben Casey's Hospital —something abut the hair attracted me when I was very young. I believe that I detected a resemblance between him and his (as I thought of it then) Beethoven hair (which I thought had been electrified by the intensity of composing, hair vibrating with the frequencies of the notes; there quite a mystery story associated with Beethoven's hair, by the way) and Moe's hair had that stooge's hair been electrified, shocked so as to loosen up a bit. Jaffe
whose verbal hammering of man woman birth death infinity, as he drew the pictured symbols on a board, introduced the show —a vocal hammer [sonic equivalent of a medical reflex hammer, perhaps] (no doubt deemed appropriately godlike [so presumably fatherly also] by the tv show's producers, a voice that transmitted the gravity of that map of human origin and destination —almost as if the human purpose was contributions to infinity. Okay, so it was just a hospital drama from a while ago (1961-1966, and here and there in reruns, VHS, DVD), but the sound of Jaffe's voice still resonates with me, the lack of uncertainty and hesitation as he proclaimed man and woman suitable for birth, death, and infinity, a destination of convergence. The infinity in particular interested me and gave me something to aspire toward that easily rivaled the notions of heaven with which I was more familiar, for being bombarded with them on Sundays along with only one rather hellish alternative. And infinity wasn't being offered as a synonym or extension of death, I felt; infinity was something else, something that death was only a part of, so I liked infinity a lot then, even without Limited Fork Theory to reconfigure and flexibly frame it, at the moment with a Stig-Gort center. An all-inclusive Jaffe list? Intended to be? to not be? I guess that in the infinity of it all, I figured there was place for me if I wanted one, or more importantly, if I made one.

Jaffe's list, drawn each week in the same intro to the show, linked well with gort klaatu barata nictoe
as echoes and translations —a Limited Fork Theory system of kaleidoscopic symmetry,
and Patricia Neal's saying as Helen Benson gort klaatu barata nictoe
did indeed mean that a matter of life and death had surfaced, as this apparent infinite loop of birth and death has always been for the abbreviated always that humanity can already claim.

So round and round the loop drives The Stig, as fast as he can
for the love of orbits
within what's possible for the vehicles he pilots: the body (whether robot, terminator-in-training or something else, oddly fantastic circular melange) in The Stig suit and helmet and the car.


Professor Barnhard's equation:

Einstein writing equation on blackboard (close-up):

(from corbis)

A reality in which Einstein has Hilda-type help variation:

(from science after sunclipse)


Standing still is the death of Limited Fork which depends on, move with, lives as interaction, as motion, as event, as evidence thereof; so when the earth stood still, there were marks of prior motion, evidence of ceased activity; the fork limited to artifact, at rest; the fork not forking, but forked to death, the tines more etched and defined, the kaleidoscope fixed, singular perspective, no way to turn what could be a dial if turned; an unvisited gallery in which no movement results in no visitation if nothing moves.

So I am intrigued by that Day on which there were ethical exceptions to what was stilled; a beauty of exception, a marvelousness of exclusion.

Maybe a last act before immobility will be a meeting of all tines, a converging movement into an ultimate entanglement, a tying into a bow as a gift of peace, still(ed) moment? if time has stopped? still(ed) day/night? if day/night/time has stopped? Light is event, and stops. Darkness is event? State of being dark? Active darkness? Or the appearance of cessation itself, the look and feel of cessation?
Singularity? Outcome of the fusion of everything multiplied by the zero that is part of an all-inclusive all-embracing everything.



Solved and unsolved universes







Further kaleidoscopic perspectives in a collage system of travel toward a gift of meaning:

Day the Earth Stood Still 1951 warning of hope excerpt:

and a remix, a double take, a delayed twin, updated, clone raised apart yet interacting with certain gist, certain marks,
certain fields of information:

The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008) - Official Trailer (HD) - The funniest movie is here. Find it


This is part of my Stig project, some very flexible bones of it,
some of which will set in certain ways, will develop preferences for the setting

but the bones can be broken to redirect, to reset them
if necessary.


As Project Stig: Gort edition progresses,
it will grow to encompass, at least fringes of these definitions from all words.com:

Okay, so it was just a hospital drama from a while ago (1961-1966, and here and there in reruns, VHS, DVD), but the sound of Jaffe's voice still resonates with me, the lack of uncertainty and hesitation as he proclaimed man and woman suitable for birth, death, and infinity, a destination of convergence. The infinity in particular interested me and gave me something to aspire toward that easily rivaled the notions of heaven with which I was more familiar, for being bombarded with them on Sundays along with only one rather hellish alternative. And infinity wasn't being offered as a synonym or extension of death, I felt; infinity was something else, something that death was only a part of, so I liked infinity a lot then, even without Limited Fork Theory to reconfigure and flexibly frame it, at the moment with a Stig-Gort center. An all-inclusive Jaffe list? Intended to be? to not be? I guess that in the infinity of it all, I figured there was place for me if I wanted one, or more importantly, if I made one.

Jaffe's list, drawn each week in the same intro to the show, linked well with gort klaatu barata nictoe
as echoes and translations —a Limited Fork Theory system of kaleidoscopic symmetry,
and Patricia Neal's saying as Helen Benson gort klaatu barata nictoe
did indeed mean that a matter of life and death had surfaced, as this apparent infinite loop of birth and death has always been for the abbreviated always that humanity can already claim.

So round and round the loop drives The Stig, as fast as he can
for the love of orbits
within what's possible for the vehicles he pilots: the body (whether robot, terminator-in-training or something else, oddly fantastic circular melange) in The Stig suit and helmet and the car.

Standing still is the death of Limited Fork which depends on, move with, lives as interaction, as motion, as event, as evidence thereof; so when the earth stood still, there were marks of prior motion, evidence of ceased activity; the fork limited to artifact, at rest; the fork not forking, but forked to death, the tines more etched and defined, the kaleidoscope fixed, singular perspective, no way to turn what could be a dial if turned; an unvisited gallery in which no movement results in no visitation if nothing moves.

So I am intrigued by that Day on which there were ethical exceptions to what was stilled; a beauty of exception, a marvelousness of exclusion.

Maybe a last act before immobility will be a meeting of all tines, a converging movement into an ultimate entanglement, a tying into a bow as a gift of peace, still(ed) moment? if time has stopped? still(ed) day/night? if day/night/time has stopped? Light is event, and stops. Darkness is event? State of being dark? Active darkness? Or the appearance of cessation itself, the look and feel of cessation?
Singularity? Outcome of the fusion of everything multiplied by the zero that is part of an all-inclusive all-embracing everything.

This is part of my Stig project, some very flexible bones of it,
some of which will set in certain ways, will develop preferences for the setting

but the bones can be broken to redirect, to reset them
if necessary.
