AQ 543 = FAST APPROXIMATE ANTI-ALIASING = FITZ AND FLOYD, INC. © MCMLXXVII FF = SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY.

AQ 8390 = AN EXAMPLE OF GRACEFUL DEGRADATION BY DESIGN IN AN IMAGE WITH TRANSPARENCY. THE TOP TWO IMAGES ARE EACH THE RESULT OF VIEWING THE COMPOSITE IMAGE IN A VIEWER THAT RECOGNISES TRANSPARENCY. THE BOTTOM TWO IMAGES ARE THE RESULT IN A VIEWER WITH NO SUPPORT FOR TRANSPARENCY. BECAUSE THE TRANSPARENCY MASK (CENTRE BOTTOM) IS DISCARDED, ONLY THE OVERLAY (CENTRE TOP) REMAINS; THE IMAGE ON THE LEFT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO DEGRADE GRACEFULLY, HENCE IS STILL MEANINGFUL WITHOUT ITS TRANSPARENCY INFORMATION (Fault-tolerant system) = CLUSTER OF TECHNICAL TERMS THAT THE ATHENIANS USED TO DESCRIBE THE EXPERIENCE OF SPECTATING IN THE THEATER. THESE TERMS, FROM WHICH THE ENGLISH WORD "THEORY" DERIVES, INCLUDE THEOREO ("TO BE A SPECTATOR," ESPECIALLY IN THE THEATER), THEOROS (THE STATE AMBASSADOR SENT TO THE ORACLES OR GAMES IN OTHER CITIES), THEORIA (THE PRACTICE OF SENDING THEOROI TO ORACLES AND GAMES ABROAD), THEOREMA ("SIGHT, SPECTACLE"), THEAOMAI ("TO ATTEND THEATER, GAZE AT, BE A SPECTATOR"), THEA AND THEAMA ("VISION, SIGHT, SPECTACLE"), THEATES ("THEATER-GOER") (thea- cluster of terms).

AQ 68 = FXAA = SEE 426 (AQ-426 NATIONAL LAUNCH SYSTEM) = SEE 642 (AQ-642 FOUR TREASURES OF THE TUATHA DÉ DANANN, AQ-642 REACH TO THE SKYS AND PULL DOWN A STAR, AQ-642 SCIENCE FOR POLICY • POLICY FOR SCIENCE, AQ-642 THE HIDDEN AFRICAN HERITAGE OF THE MEDICIS, AQ-642 WITHIN A SINGLE EXTENDED AURAL AMBIENCE) = SEE 264 (AQ-264 GUMDROP-SHAPED).

AQ 210 = NORTHANGER = MISE EN ABYME = WELL… HERE I AM (Firefly)

monday, unearthed faded microfilm article from Scientific American August 1985 issue, which they provide online as pdf. it was a TIME magazine article about Complexity that got me interested in fractals (this might be it: The New Field of Complexity). later i'd learn about as above so below, but then what amazed me was the pattern of life & how numbers created everything.
