The Antikythera Mechanism

There are 82 remaining fragments of the mechanism
that contain a total of 30 gears. The largest piece
contains 27 of the gears.

X-ray image

The Antikythera mechanism is a unique mechanical calculator from second-century B.C. Greece. Its sophistication surprised archaeologists when it was discovered in 1901. But no one had anticipated its true power.
Advanced imaging tools have finally enabled researchers to reconstruct how the device predicted lunar and solar eclipses and the motion of the moon in the sky.
Inscriptions on the mechanism suggest that it might have been built in the Greek city of Syracuse (now in modern Sicily), perhaps in a tradition that originated with Archimedes.

Clicking on the x-ray image will expand
it then it will expand one more time.
You can see a small phillips head screw
on the lower right hand side. You can
also see lots of gears like a watch.

This thing is amazing.
It is very hard to believe that this
thing is more than 2000 years old.

Artificial Life?

No, These are not eyes. These are cells, one is artifical and the other
one is real. Scientists have finally created DNA.


If we stupid humans can do it, then I guess aliens from other
worlds could do it too, and place such life on a planet (earth) to
see what would happen. We may just be such an experiment.
Now if those aliens called themselves gods and there planet
was named heaven, then it would all make perfect sense.

Big Bang=Big End?

I Just saw a documentary about the big bang and
where the universe is heading. Now it looks like
the universe will eventually expand until it becomes
nothing. All the matter and galaxies will breakdown
until there is only emptiness no longer expanding.

But what I think will really happen, is it will start to
implode until it becomes so small that it explodes again.

If nothing else, the Big Bang theory helps tremendously
to prove the creation theory (a beginning) so in a way
science is helping to prove the existence of God.

Next Blog>

Looking at others blogs, I find most of them
to be much like my own when it comes to
posting. Most people don't post every single
day and the blogs are about everyday life.

Also, the Next Blog> link (button) itself
can take me to the same blogs like being
stuck in a loop, depending on which blog
I start from.

If I start from this Weblog De Fuego blog
then I get blogs about autism and bipolar
and other psychological disorders. But if
I start from my piano music blog, then
I get blogs about classical music and such.
But the thing that really gets me is that I
never run into any of my own 35 blogs
nor the 6 I have showing on my profile view.

About Weblog De Fuego

This weblog de fuego, is supposed to be the front page
or cover page, that connects you to my art, which are in
fact other blogs of mine. But when I look at it over the
past 3+ years, I have not always done a good job at this.

So to sorta as they say "connect the dots" I can tell you
that clicking on my profile view will take you to the most
important of my 35 blogs.

About 2012

I have studied about 2012 since the 80's
and now I am thinking that nothing bad
will happen as in the end of all life and
the world. This cycle happens every
26.000 years and the world/earth still
exists and there is still life on it.

While there could be natural occurrences
and some disasters effecting human lives,
I doubt that all life and earth itself will
disappear forever, at least not in our life
time. I have written 35 sonnets about this
back in 1993 here.
