Evidence of Sacred Geometry Observed in Cosmic Webs




Like it or not, mathematics underpins our whole existence, either by conscious design or through natural selection. Our ancestors were very appreciative of the significance of mathematics, illustrated by the precise geometric alignments that have been observed in the construction and placements of ancient monuments on earth, such as Stonehenge and the pyramids, that align them with other monuments nearby, and also with astronomical events such as sunrise or sunset.

UFO Follows a GOL Airliner Tuesday Afternoon Off Santa Catarina

An unidentified flying object (UFO) tailed a passenger plane belonging to GOL Airlines during its regular service between Navegantes (Santa Catarina) to Guarulhos (Sao Paulo). The phenomenon was seen by a passenger, businessman Julio Belli, of Sao Jose dos Campos (SP) as he observed the skyscape. Equipped with his camera, he managed to take shots of the object, which emitted a bright light, even on a completely clear day. The event occurred early in the afternoon, around 13:00 hours on Tuesday, 18 November 2014.



The event started when he looked through the window and saw a light flying far too low, at sea level. Shortly after, the same object appeared to be slightly higher than the Boeing B737-700 and was on the horizon for a few minutes. The time elapsed between the sighting and the photographs was between two or three minutes at most.

“We took off at 12:40 hours and it was around 13:12 that I saw the object. I took the camera and managed to take a few photos. Since the plane was empty, I went to the other side and I also had the same bright object following us, so I took more photos. I was worried that it might be a reflection on the window or the camera lens, so I repeated the same shot several times and nothing resembling that luminous form appeared,” Belli said.



Aside from being very bright, they had a darker color on either end, orange in color. The object also changed colors several times during the time it was visible to the airliner’s passengers. The businessman approached the fight crew and told them what was going on.



“One of them said that they’d seen objects of this same kind in the Amazon Rainforest and over Manaus, where it occurs more frequently,” added Belli.

The aircraft’s altitude at the time was between 8,000 to 10,000 meters. Despite the phenomenon’s startling nature, Belli does not dismiss the possibility that it could have been a weather balloon. The only problem is the fact that there were *two* objects, one on either side of the airliner, following the craft and vanishing and reappearing on the horizon in very brief periods of time. Both objects vanished without a trace.

Nuevos datos sobre la naturaleza de la materia oscura

Investigadores de la Universidad de Granada han puesto límites a las propiedades de una de las partículas candidatas a materia oscura: los axiones. El avance se suma a los esfuerzos internacionales para esclarecer la misteriosa materia oscura, que por sus efectos gravitatorios,se sabe constituye más del 80% de la masa del universo.

Nuevo modelo teórico de interruptor cúantico mediante simetría

Un equipo internacional de científicos, con participación de la Universidad de Granada, ha descrito cómo la simetría permite controlar el transporte de energía en sistemas cuánticos abiertos, formados por conjuntos de partículas en interacción perturbados por el entorno. El modelo teórico de interruptor cuántico puede ayudar a crear placas solares más eficaces, entre otras aplicaciones.

Gabriel Bereau y su violín eléctrico

Recuerdo que, gracias a la magia radiofónica de Ramón Trecet, me fascinó allá a principios de los noventa un tipo genial con un violín eléctrico que atendía al nombre de Ed Alleyne-Johnson . El apunte de hoy también va de violines modificados, solo que de forma mucho más radical. Lástima no tener a mano un registro de cómo sonaba, porque simplemente contemplando el artilugio no imagino cómo podría resultar la experiencia. He aquí el modelo de violín eléctrico que Gabriel Bereau presentó al mundo en 1928… y nunca más se supo del mismo (no he logrado encontrar referencias a la máquina posteriores a 1930 que empujen a pensar que tuviera algún éxito).

El violín “robot” de Gabriel Bereau. (Mundo Gráfico, 18 de abril de 1928. Biblioteca Nacional).


Los ingenieros franceses Bereau y Aubry mostraron entonces una máquina extraña que no tuvo más recorrido que el de la propia anécdota pero que llama la atención por su original planteamiento. No era un violín eléctrico como tal se entendieron posteriormente varios modelos de violín preparado, sino más bien un “robot” que tocaba música con un violín convencional. La siguiente imagen muestra el mecanismo de dedos artificiales y brazo motor para animar el arco sobre un violín de toda la vida.

El planteamiento técnico partía de un violín normal y corriente fijado a un eje basculante sobre el que actuaba un sistema de dos brazos, uno controlaba el arco y el otro varias láminas metálicas a modo de dedos. Se comenta en la prensa de la época que incluso podía mostrar una riqueza de timbre y color similar a la de un instrumentista humano (eso habría que haberlo visto o, mejor dicho, escuchado, porque la cosa tiene miga). Las partituras debían introducirse por medio de algún sistema de codificación, aunque no queda claro cómo se hacía, supuestamente del mismo modo en que se programaban las pianolas de la época, con discos o cilindros metálidos perforados. Se realizaron pruebas públicas en París, con cierto éxito, pero la pista del invento desaparece al poco. El desarrollo de este violín eléctrico se llevó por delante dos décadas de trabajo, según comentaban los ingenieros. Una pena que no haya llegado un eco mayor del mismo hasta nuestros días.
