london moment

checked spaceweather.com and intrigued by space-time vortex:

SATELLITE ZAPPED: The solar explosion that sparked auroras over Europe also zapped NASA's Gravity Probe B satellite, temporarily causing it to lose track of its guide star, IM Pegasi. Gravity Probe B is no ordinary satellite--it's one of the most exquisite physics experiments ever attempted. Physicists are monitoring gyroscopes inside the spacecraft for wobbles that would indicate a subtle space-time vortex around Earth predicted by Einstein's theory of relativity. Good news: Solar activity has ebbed and Gravity Probe B is back to normal.

article In Search of Gravitomagnetism mentioned a london moment and a link to:

Gravitomagnetism has a history that is at least as long as that of general relativity itself. The idea that mass currents might generate the gravitational analogue of magnetic fields, and crude experiments to look for such effects predated Einstein ... The gravitomagnetic "dragging of inertial frames'' by rotating matter has played a part in discussions about the meaning and usefulness of Mach's principle, in astrophysical models of jets near accreting, rotating black holes, and in proposals for testing alternative theories of gravity. It is no surprise then, that substantial effort during the past 30 or so years has gone into trying to measure gravitomagnetism ... There are three main effects of gravitomagnetism in the solar-system: 1. Precession of a gyroscope; 2. Precession of orbital planes; and, 3. Precession of the pericenter.

a london moment, named after physical scientist Fritz London, is A quantum-mechanical phenomenon whereby a spinning superconductive metal sphere generates a magnetic field whose axis lines up exactly with the spin axis; The magnetic moment of any rotation of any superconductor, caused by the electrons lagging behind the rotation of the object [source].

The London Moment and SQUID: Reading the Unreadable ~ How can one monitor the spin axis orientation of this near-perfect gyroscope without knowing where the spin axis is on the gyroscope? What tool could sense its orientation without disturbing its rotation? The answer comes from a unique quantum-mechanical phenomenon called the "London moment."

Fritz London, a physical scientist, was experimenting in the early 1900's with metals with a unique property called "superconductivity." This is a property of only some metals and alloys in which the metal (or alloy) conducts electricity without any resistance. When electricity flows through metals, such as copper wires, at room temperature, there is always some resistance to the electrons flowing through the metal. Yet, some metals can conduct electricity without any resistance, and are called "superconducting metals." Pure metals must be dramatically cooled, reducing their temperature to just a few degrees above absolute zero (0 Kelvin,-273°C, -549°F), for this property to emerge, while certain alloys become superconductive at moderately cool temperatures.

London discovered something remarkable about these superconducting metals; he discovered that when a superconducting metal sphere spins (or an object coated with a superconducting metal spins), it creates a magnetic field around itself.

On the surface of the spinning metal, electrons lag behind the metal's positively-charged atoms creating a small difference field. This difference generates a magnetic field. What is even more remarkable about this phenomenon (and fortunate for Gravity Probe B) is that the axis of this magnetic field lines up exactly with the axis of the spinning metal.

i practice a form of astrological triangulation to sort through a diversity of astronomical events. i've already posted quite a bit of information concerning sunspot #720. two things that might help sort this all out: (1) time is elastic and you are not limited to the range of selected dates; and (2) enter this event at your personal resonance. for example -- if you're resonating to sunspot #777 & asteroid gutemberga -- why wait for sunspot #777 to appear nearside? time-travel forward.

let me see if i can give an idea of how astro-triangulation works.

several hours ago i go to spaceweather.com and hear about space-time vortex, gyroscopes, and gravitomagnetism. this is occurring at the same time as ORO; however, LONDON appears to be what this new information is pointing to. in other words: ORO's influence is to provide a new data stream and the new data stream points directly to LONDON. triangulation (simply) is defining an unknown location by using two known locations. since ORO provides the incoming stream, let's see if we can identify another location (asteroid) and check it against Yildun at the same day and time as LONDON.

this was easy:

AQ 337 = GRAVITOMAGNETISM = DEMETER'S PALE LAMPS = BEHOLD IT IS REVEALED = OBNOXIOUS TROLL = SPASTICS SOCIETY

AQ 401 = MAGFIELD AXIS=SPIN AXIS = ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE = CONCEPTUAL WHIRLWIND = GROSS MISCALCULATION

Demeter's pale lamps is from D.H. Lawrence's Bavarian Gentians. On 23-Jan, asteroid #1108 DEMETER was at Capricorn 01 direclty opposite Yildun at Cancer 01 (180º38'21.7607'') in Phase 19: Repolarization, Universal Sphere, Line of Awareness, Tensile Power. Therefore, AGAMEMNON gains new meaning when we factor in DEMETER, GRAVITOMAGNETISM ... the LONDON MOMENT. Oppositions integrate and can create tension between A (Yildun) and B (Demeter-Agamemnon) -- like a tug of war. a square, otoh, contracts, which is what HORUS represents: it is the midpoint between YILDUN and DEMETER:

AQ 126 = [1+2+6=9] = HORUS = AIWASS = DEMONIC = ADFGJKX = AEROGEL = LATENT = MEANING = REASON = STYLE = TCHAKKI = UNLIKE = WHEELS

ADFGJKX is from Liber Qwyz (69) and is mentioned in this post, and TCHAKKI is part of the Pandemonium Matrix: mapping between incompatible time-systems and operates in Zone 6.

Tchakki's mesh number resonates with Demeter's phase number.

AQ 354 = READING THE UNREADABLE = DRASTIC EARTH CHANGES = REPUBLIC OF MALDIVES

Malé, the capital of Maldives was severely hit during the recent magnitude 9.0 earthquake (wiki-link indicates furthest recorded death due to the tsunami occuring at East London in South Africa, 7 800km (4 800 miles) away from the epicentre.

3:34am ~ 25-Jan. thinking about this some more thought of the one gravitomagnetism symbol that stands out the most: the gyroscopes on Gravity Probe B are the "roundest objects ever made" and have "perfect sphericity". made me think of spheres of influence. demeter opp yildun with agamemnon 5 degrees away. and it's probably dememter-yildun squaring horus. so, agamemnon (with its london moment) has this ability to observe & analyze within 0.5 milliarcseconds. no wonder london keeps track of time, eh?

Catastrophe Theory and Magic


Catastrophe Theory and Magic

from "Psychonaut" by Peter J. Carroll (illustration by Brian Ward)

CATASTROPHE THEORY is a mathematical tool which allows sudden discontinuous changes to be represented by a topological model. Topology is sometimes called "rubber sheet geometry" in which a form can be distorted in any way so long as the basic features remain unaltered. The theory provides a qualitative but not a quantitative description of how a sudden change is likely to occur. It tells us something unusual is to be expected under certain conditions, but it does not tell us exactly when to expect it. It does, however, tell us how to provoke catastrophies. The theory is here applied to situations like initiation, illumination, and religious conversion, where there is a sudden change of state. In each case the theory describes the situation satisfactorily and also throws up much that is unexpected and valuable. It was originally my taste for perfidious wisdom that drew my attention to a theory that most mathematicians still consider "black magic," but having found it to have a certain applicability to magic I present it herewith.

CATASTROPHE THEORY

I will use mainly the cusp catastrophe model shown in figure 2. The sheet with the kink in it is the catastrophe surface across which a point representing behavior can move. The Z direction is the behavior axis, and the higher up the axis on the surface it is, the more of a particular behavior it will show. A is the highest point, B is a little lower, D is lower still, and C is the lowest point. The Y axis is a control factor which tends to move behavior from D to B or from C to A when it is applied. The X axis is a second control factor which causes catastrophes. When there is a large factor of X, any change from A to C or back again will not be a smooth one, but will be a sudden change as the point falls over the edge of the fold back down onto another part of the surface. Thus, if the behavior is at point B or D, a change in the amounts of X or Y will cause only smooth continuous changes. However, if the behavior is at point A or C, any large change in Y will result in a catastrophic change as the point falls over the fold.

Applications of the Catastrophe Theory:
Occult vs. Materialist Worldviews


This model represents occult versus the materialist worldviews. The control factors are Y, the amount of magical experiences the subject remembers having perceived; and X, the degree to which the subject is tough minded or rigorous about what he remembers having perceived. See figure 3.

The Transitions: B <-------> D; an oscillation characteristic of popular occultism, where each bit of uncritically accepted nonsense changes one's mind for the few days that one can remember it.

D -------> C; an increasing sophistication of materialist outlook caused by scientific study and rationalization.

B -------> A; an increasing sophistication of occult outlook caused by magical study and rationalization.

D -------> A; a gradual growth of an occult viewpoint caused by study of magical theories and exposure to magical experiences.

C -------> A; a sudden and discontinuous change to occult world-view caused by exposure to magical experiences.

Transitions from A are unlikely as they would involve eliminating experiences form memory. Any scheme of magical training aims to produce state A in which the subject can be discriminating about occult experience. Some masters insist on a course of mental training that initially forces the pupil into state C so that he can then make the catastrophe revision of worldview to A on being exposed to magical experiences. I tend to regard the route D --------> A (a gradual increase in both objectivity and experience) as the easiest route to engineer, although the general purpose of this book is to provoke B -------> A transitions.

Applications of the Catastrophe Theory:
Change of Belief


We can also use the catastrophe model to show a change from one belief to another. The control factors are Y, emotional commitment to one belief or the other; and X, rationality and irrationality as shown in figure 4. Types of belief (I) and (II) can range from the ideological to the religious and include such beliefs as disbelief.

The Transitions: A -------> B and C -------> D merely represent the weakening and strengthening of belief by the increase or decrease of rationality. This increase of belief with irrationality corresponds to religious revivalism and nationalism.

B -------> D; represents oscillation between rationally held beliefs (I) and (II) on an emotional basis.

A -------> C; represents catastrophic change of irrationally held beliefs (I) and (II) caused by change of emotional commitment, for example, religious conversion.

A -------> D and B -------> C; are possible.

A further phenomenon can be shown on the catastrophe surface—that of bifurcation or splitting as shown in figure 5. This figure shows how a descent into irrationality produces two possibilities for strong belief which are very unstable with respect to emotional commitment. This is a technique that has its uses in magic.

Applications of the Catastrophe Theory:
Mystical Initiation


The control factors are Y, mystical knowledge; and X, mystical power/expertise with gnosis as shown in figure 6.

The Transitions: D -------> A; a gradual increase in both knowledge and power, followed by the better systems.

D -------> B -------> A; knowledge first, power later, a process which, although safe, may never satisfactorily be complete in time.

D -------> C; power first, knowledge later. This type of training or experience often produces heresy or madness. Many mystic masters say that power on its own actually removes the candidate further from the objective of mystical initiation and erects a catastrophe barrier to further progress.

Applications of the Catastrophe Theory:
Magical Initiation


The control factors are Y, power; and X, knowledge. In a magical initiation the control factors operate the other way around because the structures of the knowledge and power are different, as are their effects on the candidate. It is often simply this difference which leads magicians and mystics to denigrate each other's systems. See figure 7.


The Transitions: D -------> A; a gradual increase in both knowledge and power.

D -------> B; power first, a dangerous path which may lead the candidate into disaster.

D -------> C; knowledge first; this type of training usually produces only a dilettante.

Thus we see why mystic masters denigrate power for its own sake. Each removes the candidate further from his objective and necessitates a catastrophic change to achieve the desired effect. Power on its own in magic and knowledge on its own in mysticism do at least bring the candidate some way forward. Both these schemes can be combined in a double catastrophe surface for which I hope the originator of the theory will forgive me. See figure 8.

Point B and C are on this surface slightly lower than D. Apart from noting how perilously thin the path D -------> A becomes at one point, I present it without further comment.
