Writes as 'aegian' in FT online
United Kingdom
Recently 'aegian of the FT', who is Mrs a*, was honoured by 'hard copy' publication of two comments originally published online under articles in the FT.

These appear in Before The Collapse by Cathal Haughian. .

This book gathers together the informally expressed thoughts of those who can clearly see the need for change in the corporate driven, agnostic. capitalist, supposedly democratic societies of this world. This need is set to become increasingly urgent in the coming three decades; which is not all that long.

We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being. It has since emerged that we are a couple with four grown up children each of whom has contributed to this joint enterprise

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious and spends most of her time writing our journal entries, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures. We correspond with the Guardian as well as the Financial Times.

There will be no puckish, looped video 'web cam'; no 'fake' ID. If you want to see picture's, then this
The Revented Intagliated Sichultian Lededje Y'breq by aegiandyad is Mrs a*. This is a portrait after the manner of the old masters Sexton Blake Old Master Portrait, A Lady In Black by aegiandyad and this Another Green Man Self Portrait by aegiandyad is a self portrait in cross view stereoscopic 3-D of the person who appears in this one: An Aegiandyad Dogwood Dryad by aegiandyad

Space-time may be the final frontier when it comes to human understanding. Is it a 'thing'? Yes and no. There is nothing there, but all of it that we know about is subject to be traversed and 'shaped' by entities that mathematicians call vector fields.

A vector field is a volume of space time filled with points, each of which has a numerical value with an arrow attached to it, signifying so much of some kind of force being potentially exerted in such and such a direction, 1G of gravity pointing towards the centre of the earth, in our local case, plus whatever the value of the Earth's magnetic field is with an angle and direction aimed towards the poles. The weak and strong nuclear forces are of concern only at tiny scales.

What 'carries' or sustains the field in the absence of matter? Space-time, which consists of nothing, or only virtual 'somethings' existing in it for too short a time to count for much, the so called 'vacuum energy' that Casimir demonstrated to be a physical reality.

Mass changes the way measurements look when they are made from different places which are accelerating relative to each other. Constant acceleration is indistinguishable from gravity. Gravity therefore changes the lengths of the metre and second  depending on the place from which they are observed. Obviously our metre rules look straight and 100 cms long to us. They don't to people far out in space where space time is flatter. From there they look ever so slightly short and / or bent and the seconds look different in duration. 

To make empty space-time 'curve' as described above requires energy, as if it were a something that resisted being bent, compressed or stretched. Mass is equivalent to energy, which is why the particle physics people measure it in units of potential energy called electron Volts. Here the mind begins to boggle, because the considerable energy packed into a mass carrying particle is granted to it by the newly discovered 'Higgs Field', or the virtual Higgs Bosons which pop in and out of it in response to any attempts to accelerate it.

This is as close as we get to unifying GR and QM; that is, not very. The mathematics of what bulk matter and its acceleration does to space time does not cohere with or even resemble the mathematics of the quantum reality that underpins everything. These two fields of endeavour still have no real overlap.

Does anyone wish to sample the spaghettified multi-dimensional world of 10 or 11 dimensional String Theory?

Ho hum,another cross eyed solarised and inverted stereo pair for adepts to goggle at. That's the kind of thing that floats this boat!

NB this is a derivative work based on a photo taken in the basement of the Stedelijk Galleries in Amsterdam. It's a cotton wool ball covered boat.

Sorry about the hiatus in The Mind Games. I haven't forgotten. Twitter is a time thief.
