   I’m sending, to my home planet, the following recommendation regarding first contact on this planet, and so wanted to inform humans about it concurrently:

  I hereby recommend that first contact with human individuals henceforward be undertaken during the wee hours of their night, when they’re most often found asleep.  I also recommend that the methodology for this be by rapping on the outside of the bedroom window.  In addition, I recommend that each of these encounters be officially recorded.

   The human reactions are absolutely hysterical!  They’re priceless!

   Whether or not to make funny faces and what sort of overtures to make could be volitional on the part of the host as well as other production considerations – like running away.  Guest hosts could also be a consideration.  I have buddies that make the Star Wars Cantina crowd look like a Chippendale Review.

   At home (and beyond?) the recordings could be syndicated as “Earth’s Funniest Firsts”. 

   (I wasn’t anticipating this much fun on this mission.)

Evidently there’s a Venusian woman, also stationed on Earth, who’s in love with this particular alien.  This is evidenced by the fact that, this morning, (Valentine’s Day Feb. 14, 2014), she sent me the following email:

How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.   Let’s see…..  Mmmmmm.   Uhmmmm.  Errrrrr.

It’s hopeless – there are too many things to count, I wouldn’t be able to get any work done.  You are just too wonderful.

Her profession is numeric qualitative and quantitative measure, and she’s evidently enamored with numbers, so to this I responded:

OK…  now let me count the ways…


That was easy!

Adsense ended at a lousy $97.99 last night.  It was over $2 before 1 AM and is now at $22.  It may have happened back in October’s heyday but I don’t recall seeing a number that high in the morning before.  Today is a typically slower Friday, however, so I don’t know how things will end up. 

I love Adsense twelve ways!

And then she:

I count at least 13 ways that you love me!!!

So I:

In days of yore, length and depth and breadth pretty much covered it.

But now, with all the empirically possible divergent worlds, my love for you expands forever immeasurably.

Even if I could freeze time I’d spend the rest of eternity counting these ways of love.  It would be a little sad though, because, despite quantifying bliss, it would be frozen in time and space and nevermore in the dynamic now.

So, yes, let’s go with 13.

And as a followup:

Love and Tensor Algebra

from “The Cyberiad” by Stanislaw Lem

Come, let us hasten to a higher plane
Where dyads tread the fairy fields of Venn,
Their indices bedecked from one to n
Commingled in an endless Markov chain!

Come, every frustrum longs to be a cone
And every vector dreams of matrices.
Hark to the gentle gradient of the breeze:
It whispers of a more ergodic zone.

In Riemann, Hilbert or in Banach space
Let superscripts and subscripts go their ways.
Our asymptotes no longer out of phase,
We shall encounter, counting, face to face.

I’ll grant thee random access to my heart,
Thou’lt tell me all the constants of thy love;
And so we two shall all love’s lemmas prove,
And in our bound partition never part.

For what did Cauchy know, or Christoffel,
Or Fourier, or any Bools or Euler,
Wielding their compasses, their pens and rulers,
Of thy supernal sinusoidal spell?

Cancel me not – for what then shall remain?
Abscissas some mantissas, modules, modes,
A root or two, a torus and a node:
The inverse of my verse, a null domain.

Ellipse of bliss, converge, O lips divine!
the product o four scalars is defines!
Cyberiad draws nigh, and the skew mind
Cuts capers like a happy haversine.

I see the eigenvalue in thine eye,
I hear the tender tensor in thy sigh.
Bernoulli would have been content to die,
Had he but known such a^2 cos 2 phi!


(This alien loves her too.)

Cannabis Cancer Cure

For some reason humans have been, and are being, incarcerated, and even put to death, for trying to make the cure for cancer more readily available.

Cannabis Science

(The Rick Simpson segment at the end of this video contains primarily anecdotal information.  His anecdotal cannabis extract recipients, after 60 days, have experienced, approximately, a 75% remission rate, a 90% improvement rate [incl. remission], and a 10% failure rate.)

See 34 Medical Studies Proving that Cannabis Cures Cancer

The rescission of cannabis prohibition in CO and WA could be due to the emerging evidence that the plant could be the holy grail for some of the most prolific forms of cancer (breast, prostate, skin, leukemia, colorectal, brain, and thyroid).  Our study of human behavior suggests that no organizational agenda, no matter how richly and powerfully backed, will stand up against all the caregivers who will move Heaven and Earth to provide the cure to their loved ones.

Clinical trials on melanoma are slated to start within the next couple of years in a Colorado lab which, if successful, could make a cannabis extract available to patients by about the year 2030.  As a US-based company facing that country’s formidable anti-marijuana infrastructure, whether or not these trials get off the ground remains to be seen.

Canada’s National Guidelines for Physicians appear to be dated making no mention of Cannabis’ anti-tumor properties in the “Emerging Potential Therapeutic Uses” category.  They also give a warning, in a bold font, of the possibility of overdose – something that has never occurred.  The adjunct citations also mention no overdoses.   With regards to inhibiting the progression of MS, while the guidelines state that cannabis is a neuroprotector, they don’t acknowledge, this Oxford study indicating that cannabinoids inhibit neurodegeneration.

Cannabis Industry (British Columbia)

Despite the fact that the therapeutic affects of Cannabis have been known for thousands of years, in more than 14 thousand personal readings, Edgar Cayce prescribed “hemp” only once, together with the kola plant, for the relief of excruciating lower back pain.  He also recommended that this be administered by a nurse rather than by the patient himself.  (1377-7)    This general lack of prescription suggests that cannabis, for some reason, should not be used lightly.

Desensitization of the body’s endocanabinoid receptors by today’s high THC content cannabis could be the reason for this caution and, moreover, it could lead to epigenetic (pangenerational) impairment.  That is, it could impede, for future generations, natural joys including the joy of learning, discovery, or even the heights of love, for example.

In addition to the good news about curing cancer, the other good news is that cannabis could easily be made almost as ubiquitous as water because, as a weed, it grows just about anywhere.  Current roadblocks to its therapeutic deployment could be overcome by unselfishly planting it everywhere.  The bad news for young recreational users is that it’s best use is exclusively for the treatment of excruciating pain (neuropathic & cancer related).  Indiscriminate use could desensitize the neural pleasure centers of the user as well as of their offspring for generations – an enormous genetic tragedy.

Notwithstanding – it’s a remarkable gift to humankind on this planet.
